Specialness


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh Taj ad-Din Abu al-Fadhl Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Atha‘illah as-Sakandari (q.s.) wrote, in al-Hikam, “It is not necessary that specialness entails one has no rough human characteristics.  Specialness is like the light of the Sun filling the horizon, whereas the horizon has no light in itself.  Sometimes, He Takes Away the trait of specialness from you and Makes you return to your rough human limits.  Thus, the light of day is not from you and does not belong to you; rather, it is merely being put over you.”
