Allah the Glorious and Majestic proclaims:


He speaks falsely who claims to love Me yet neglects Me for even a moment. Does not the true lover desire continuous intimacy with the beloved? I well know My true lovers, who behold Me ceaselessly. They adore Me during deep states of contemplation and converse with Me while immersed in My Presence during daily life. Tomorrow, I will refresh their eyes in My Gardens of Paradise.

(This khabar was transmitted through the sage al-Mufaddal. It is recorded in Ibn Arabi's Mishkat al-Anwar)

Description:

Islam's acceptance of other religions remains an enigma for many Westerners. Yet it is Islam's doctrine of Unity, which affirms one supreme God, as well as its acceptance of multiple prophets, which explains its acceptance of other faiths. The sixteen articles in this volume discuss the fundamental universality of Islam and make the case for it as a religion and civilisation intrinsically equipped to address all aspects of the human experience, including the priority of Divine Mercy over Justice, the inclusive nature of prophecy, the emphasis on virtue and beauty, the Islamic ability to assimilate various cultural and ethnic languages and the capacity of Islamic mysticism or Sufism to serve as a spiritual bridge for interfaith dialogue between diverse religions.
