Salaam and Greetings of Peace:
He is One but not as number, and He is Manifest but not by way of associating; He is Evident but not by way of being visible. He is intrinsic but not by separation, and He is apart but not by distance. And He is near but not by proximity.
- Imam Al-Ridha, attributed in Al-Amali, ch. 13, #4
Alhamdulillah! Indeed, Allah is beyond all classification, and He is beyond the fives senses and the six directions. Infinity and eternity are in His hands, and He is beyond them also. He is all Being and all Non-Being, and His signs are on the horizons and in ourselves. And He is Love.
