■ What is God? Who is God?
■ Is it possible to see God?
■ Why do we not feel the presence of God?
■ How to connect to God?
■ How to distinguish the Real God from the illusory god?

This collection consists of three volumes. The main discourses include interpretations of the blessed verse ﴾ Allah is the Light of heavens and the earth…﴿ which have been presented in the course of some sermons up to ﴾…and Allah has knowledge of all things.﴿ and then written down for publication.
The discourses comprise discussions on: Unity of the most Sacred and Divine Essence, Names, and Acts of Allah; how the world of creation appeared; relation of the transient to the pre-existent; descend of the Light of Being onto “manifestations of possible beings”; the truth of wilāya and the creatures’ relation to the Essence of the Most exalted Creator, vision of Allah and union with His Sacred Essence through annihilation and demolition of unreal and borrowed existence, merging into the Absolute Being and the Genuine and True Being.

Excerpts from the book:
