For only the rightful duty seems hard for it. Rather, what veils you from Him is the illusion of a being alongside of Him.
Full text of “Kitab Al Hikam Of Ibn Ata Illah English & Arabic”
Pain even if manifest in many forms is only through being veiled from Him. Other people gain an illumined heart and as result perform dhikr. Do you not know that He is the one who presented the knowledge of Himself to you, whereas you are the one who presented Him with deeds? How can it be conceived that something veils Him, since He is more manifest than anything?
Still others have no spiritual lights nor any remembrances — and we seek refuge with God from that. Subjects of divine attraction have His Entity revealed to them.
Kitab Al Hikam of Ibn Ata Illah English & Arabic
For, in truth, He has not opened it for you but out of a desire to make Himself known to you. THe eye ara the intellect makes you witness your nonbeing as due arabc His Being. You are a gem enclosed by the shells of created forms. How can it be conceived that something veils Him, since He is nearer to you than anything else?
And He expanded your free time so that some choice [in performing actions] would remain for you. So, why would he not be shy from asking His creation for his needs.
Or how can it journey to God while shackled by its passions?
Those traveling the Path under a teacher experience these things in the reverse order. What comparison is there between what He seeks from you and what you seek from Him? And has He conferred upon you anything but His favours? Your Lord is amused by a people who arwbic pushed to Paradise in chains.
Sometimes He takes away the trait of specialness from you and makes you return to your rough human limits. And it could be that you are made to abide at a distance without your knowing it, if only by His leaving you to do as you like.
His attributes point to His Entity since it is impossible for an attribute to be existent all by itself.
How can it be conceived that something veils Him, since He is the Manifest to everything? Otherwise your intellect will be obscured and the light of your innermost heart extinguished.
Then, He makes them see His actions. In the grace of God and in His mercy, in that they should rejoice. And thus He unites you to Himself by virtue of what comes from Him to you, not by virtue of what goes from you to Him. The first is for those who are apt to learn lessons [from what they see] and the second is that experience the vision [of God] and have insight.
Or how can it desire to enter the Presence of God while it has not yet purified itself of the stain of forgetfulness? THe Truth of the intellect makes you witness His Being, not your nonbeing, nor your being. And peace on you! It is better than that which they hoard.
And He does not make any one reach His friends except he whom He wishes to make reach Him. Indeed when kings enter cities, they ruin them. If you are not satisfied with His knowing of you, then your not being satisfied with His knowing is a greater misfortune than people hurting you. How can you request reward for the truthfulness He has given you?
Kitab Al Hikam Of Ibn Ata Illah English & Arabic
But inferential argumentation comes from the absence of union with Him. Realise your weakness and He will strengthen you with His power. He who has Him as his starting-point knows the Real as It is, and proves any matter by reference to the Being of its Origin.
Whoever is annihilated in Him is absent from everything. For your forgetfulness of the Invocation of Him is worse than your forgetfulness in the Invocation of Him.
