A Quote by 'Abd al-Kader on divinity, god, hell, knowledge, laws, mercy, paradise, purity, spirituality, and wisdom

If the divine Mercy grants him the knowledge of himself, then his adoration will be pure; and, for him, paradise and hell, recompense, spiritual degrees and all created things will be as though God had never created them. He will not accord them any importance, nor will he take them into consideration, except to the extent that it is prescribed by the divine Law and Wisdom. For then he will know Who is the sole Agent.

'Abd al-Kader (1807 - 1883)
