THE WISDOM OF IBN ATA'ALLAH
(Excerpts Only)

Translation and Commentary by Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri

The Hikam (Wisdom)

Section Ten

HIKMA 97

There are two blessings no being is ever devoid of, and are essential for every creature: the blessing of existence and the blessing of subsistence. 

Existence and creation are the gifts of the creator to expose the treasury of His gardens and treasures, both temporarily and eternally. Allah's constant mercy is the power behind ongoing ness, which includes avoidance of evils, acceptance of good and transformation through His message. 

HIKMA 98

He blessed you firstly with existence and secondly with continuous sustenance. 

Allah has given the Adamic creation all that is needed to reach its full potential in enlightenment and thus access to joy through divine awareness. The door to His blissful courtyard is through recognition of our constant frailty, weakness and need of sustenance at all levels of existence and experience.
