Sufi Terminology

Lutf - see 'Gentleness'.

See also: Gentleness
(Lutf). The Kindness, Gentleness and Grace of Allah. Allah's Kindness is Absolute Subtlety. It descends into the heart, filling the entire being of His slave with loFve and awe and bewilderment. This indescribable and incomprehensible gentleness enters those hearts which contain only Allah, bestowing upon the slaves, knowers and lovers a continuance in their contemplation of Allah. Yet, the People of Perfection see beyond such bestowals to the Source Itself, to Allah. Nothing interrupts their contemplation of Allah because opposites are joined and there is no distinction between gentleness and severity.
