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


('Izza) indicates Allah as the "Lord of inaccessibility above what they describe" (The Qur'an 37:180). No laudation on the part of the creattions can attain to Allah.

See also: Essence
(Dhat). The Essence. This is Allah in Himself without regard to His creations, His Attributes or His Names. The Essence is beyond knowledge or conceptualization. Allah warns us of this aspect of Himself. The Essence is Absolute Blindness, the Hidden of the Hidden, the Unknown of the Unknown. This is the World of Absolute Non-manifestation.
