(Khalq). Creation itself or the phenomenal world. Khalq refers to the creation which is the result of the Creator's Command, "Be!" ("Kun!"). The term al Khalq (creation) is often applied as the opposite of al Haqq (the Creative Truth). The first thing that Allah created was the Light of Muhammad and from his light all of existence became manifest. The Holy Prophet said, "I am from the Light of Allah and the whole world is from my light". Creation itself is only made visible through him.
(Bashariyya). Human nature. Spiritual music enables the spiritually mature man to come to rest from all the burdens of the human state (bashariyya). It opens, within him, the divine mysteries and connects his yearning heart to the World of the Spirits.
