6.0 - THE SETTING: Settling in Damascus until he passed away, may Allah have mercy on him - (620/1223 - 638/1240)

“If you consider existence as mere example, you could manage it to the right or to the left.
***
With knowledge, you could bring it down to the earth, or you could make it a full moon when it is a crescent.
***
You could make it a bejeweled crown on the head, after it was a shoe in the foot of time.
***
Spanning all the universes east and west, as well as everywhere between them, north and south.
***
How often we have perceived in it some real deficiency, but when we came closer we only saw perfection!
***
How often have you asked Allah to provide your needs, and how often have you answered His requests?
***
My sun is rising on it, and at that, the shadows are extended over all the worlds.”
***
