A Quote by Abu Bakr Muhammad Ibn al-`Arabi on divinity, names, and sharing

The divine Names are shared by the Lord and His vassal. The Lord is the vassal's higher self; it is the Lord who acts in him and through him: "When you see the creature, you see the First and the Last, the Manifested and the Hidden."

Ibn al-'Arabi (1165 - 1240)
