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


Ghurbah - see 'Exile'.

See also: Exile
(Ghurbah) means 'becoming a stranger'. It is a removal from and the forsaking of one's native place in search of the object of one's wish. Such a removal through a state comes from the reality of the effectiveness of that state. Removal through the Real comes from the confounding of realisation. Exile for the Sufis is to become an exile from the influence of the states.
