THE EXTRAORDINARY COMPREHENSIVENESS OF THE KNOWLEDGE THE QURAN

This relates to the extraordinary comprehensiveness of the knowledge the Quran includes. Besides having caused to flow forth from the oceans of its own knowledge, the numerous and various sciences of the Shari’a, the many and varied sciences of truth (haqiqa), and the innumerable different sciences of the religious orders (tariqa), the Quran also makes flow from itself regularly and prolifically true wisdom and scientific knowledge of the sphere of contingencies (i.e. the material world), and true knowledge of the realm of necessity, that is, true knowledge of the Divine realm, and the esoteric knowledge of the Hereafter. It would need a very large and separate volume to give examples of this gleam. As examples, I refer the reader to the Words so far written. The truths expounded in these twenty-five Words are only twenty-five drops from the oceans of the Quran’s knowledge. If there are errors in those Words, they come from my defective understanding.
