My teacher, Sidi Shaykh Muhammad al-Jamal,
wrote in his book, Music of the Soul,
that God created Adam, and when Adam was still in spirit form,
God put His image in Adam,
His Light in him,
and the fragrance of all His qualities in Adam.
God put the knowledge of everything from the seen and the unseen,
the hidden and the revealed,
into the heart of Adam,
and from Adam’s breath, the universe was created.
Adam, created in the image of God,
contained the entire universe within him.
From the breath of Godthrough the spirit of Adam,
the creation took shape
to reveal the hidden meanings
of the word of God.
Your Light sparks the flame
of desire in the heart
that calls us to You,
and illuminates the path
that leads us to know You.
Through the rusty mirror of our hearts,
we seek the Face of God,
to know the Truth of Existence
that is the origin of our own existence,
the essence contained within –
the Essence of the One.
