(Fasl) is a separation you do not hope for from your Beloved. It is a differentiation from Allah after a state of identification or unification with Allah. It is full of torment and anguish. However, for the People of Solitude, the great Sufis, who continually witness the true situation, (i.e. Reality Itself), there is no parting. Their union cannot turn into separation or parting just as knowledge cannot turn into ignorance.
