The Language of the Future
Sufi Terminology
by Murshid F.A. Ali ElSenossi


(Sabkah) is synonymous with the term 'The Dust'. This is the fine dust into which the mountains shall be crushed and into which the misdeeds of the unbelievers will be transformed on the Day of Judgement.

See also: Dust
(Al Haba). 'The fine dust suspended in the air'. Al haba is a symbol of the universal plastic substance or the prima materia. This symbolism illustrates the double nature of the Spirit. Dust becomes visible only when a beam of light is refracted off it and the beam of light becomes visible only when it is refracted off the veil of dust. The created Spirit is like that beam of light, needing the universal plastic substance which is the cosmos.
