qutbu-l aqtab
Pole of Poles

(Qutb ul Aqtab). He is The Pole (al Qutb) around whom turns the whole cosmos. In having assumed the traits of all of the Divine Names he is the mirror of Allah. He has two names; through his essential perfection he is slave of Allah ('Abdullah), and through the perfection of having realized all the Divine Names he is slave of the All-Comprehensive ('Abd al Jami'). He is the Possessor of the Present moment, the Eye of Time, and the Mystery of Destiny.
