The Language of the Future
Sufi Terminology
by Murshid F.A. Ali ElSenossi


(Taghadhdhi) is that which is provided by food and spreads its benefits throughout the entire body. The engendered things take their nourishment from the Divinity, upon Whom they depend for their existence and the Divinity takes Its nourishment from the engendered things through whom It becomes manifest.

(Ghidha). Allah, the Absolute, is the Source of food and nourishment for all of the creatures. All of Allah's creatures exist, subsist and are kept alive by Allah. And, the Absolute is nourished by the forms of the creatures because it is through them that the Names and Attributes become manifest.
