Imam al-Ghazali (r.a.) on the Illuminated Soul

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam al-Ghazali (r.a.) wrote, in his Minhaj al-‘Abidin, “It has been indicated by the Prophet (s.a.w.), the Master of Sacred Law, ‘When Nur enters the inner reality, it expands and opens up.’

This prompted someone to ask, ‘O Messenger of God, is there any obvious sign by which that can be recognised?’

He replied, ‘The shunning of the abode of illusion, turning in repentance to the abode of eternity, and being prepared for death before the advent of death.’”
