The Language of the Future
by Murshid F.A. Ali ElSenossi
(Sahih). Within the higher teaching many Sayings of the Prophet Muhammad (May the Salutations of Allah be upon him and Peace) are considered to be sound or authentic on the basis of unveiling rather than on the basis of transmission.
(Sunnah). The profound Science of Beautiful Moral Behaviour based upon the beautiful model of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (May the Salutations of Allah be upon him and Peace). Following the form of, and contemplating the meaning within, the sunna are the most profound ways in which man can prepare himself to receive Divine Knowledge.
(Naql). Sayings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (May the Salutations of Allah be upon him and Peace) are considered 'sound' if the chain of transmission (naql) is strong. Whereas the scholars only rely upon those sayings which are 'sound' by way of transmission (naql), the People of the higher teaching often quote ahadith that are considered 'sound' on the basis of 'unveiling'.
