hikmat al-wujud
Wisdom of Existence

(Hikmat al Wujud). Existence itself is full of wisdom because Allah, the Wise, put everything in its place and He governs the affair. Wisdom may be gained from anything and everything in existence because Allah does not create anything without a purpose.

Wujud - see 'Being'. Kawn - see 'Engendered existence'.
(Basirah). Insight. The basirah is the inner eye which perceives the World of the Unseen. Man's basirah is veiled and covered with a rust which can only be removed through the sincere practising of the Remembrance of Allah. Insight is one of the forms of direct knowledge of Reality.
