Clear Sight

(Firasa). Perspicacity or clear sightedness.

See also: Clear sight through faith
(Firasat al Imaniyya). 'Perspicacity through faith'. This is a Divine light which Allah gives to the person of faith in his inner eye (basirah). 'Perspicacity through faith' is gained through assuming the noble character traits in perfect harmony, balance and equilibrium. The Holy Prophet Muhammad (May the Salutations of Allah be upon him and Peace) said, "be wary of the firasa of the man of faith for he sees with the Light of Allah".
