Vouchsafed Knowledge

January 19, 2019 Comments Off on Vouchsafed Knowledge

Imam Junayd al-Salik was asked about Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib’s knowledge in regard to the esoteric sciences, and he said:

“If it were not for the fact that Imam Ali, Allah be pleased with him, had been engaged in numerous battles, the world may have benefited more from his contributions to the knowledge of esoteric/hidden things/knowledge, for he was one who had been vouchsafed Divine Knowledge.”

(Recorded by Abu Nasr Abdullahi al-Sarraj in Kitab al-Luma fit Tasawwuf, The Book of the Light of Spirituality pg. 129)
