In this episode, Shaykh Zahir Bacchus covers the 140th aphorism of the Hikam :
“He has given you to contemplate things made to exist, but not allowed you to stop with them: Say: ‘Look at what is in the heavens’
—opening to you the door of comprehensions, and He did not say: ‘Look at the heavens,’ lest He direct you to physical bodies.”
This podcast covers “The Hikam”, considered a classical masterpiece in spiritual literature – written by the great spiritual master of 13th/14th century Ibn Ata’illah. The Hikam is a book of spiritual aphorisms containing timeless and pure spiritual wisdom.
