A Quote by 'Abd al-Kader on colors, god, originality, and purity

God has stolen my [illusory] "I" from me and has brought me near to my [real] "I" . . . The colors have returned to the pure primordial white. The voyage has reached its end and everything other than Him has ceased to exist. All attribution, every aspect and all relation being abolished, the original state is reestablished.
