Sufi Terminology
by Murshid F.A. Ali ElSenossi


(Ta'bir). Interpretation or crossing over. An example of such crossing over is that of the intepreter of a dream who crosses over from the sensory form of the dream to the hidden meaning. The interpreter (mu'abbir) then gives expression to the inward sense.

(Mu'abbir). The interpreter of a dream is the one who passes over (ta'bir) from the sensory form of the dream to the meaning contained within the dream's form. It is within the Realm of Imagination that meanings become clothed in forms.
('Ibarah). Many of the Great Masters of the higher teaching have been given the gift called 'Opening of Expression' through which they are able to express highly mystical concepts, visions and seemingly inexpressible spiritual experiences. In some cases it is the murid who gives verbal expression to the subtle allusions through which his own Murshid transmitted the Teaching.
