Mukashafah, Seeing Allah Everywhere
Imam Bilal Hyde
Saturday May 1, 10:30 AM to 1 PM Pacific Time
Because I am unable to see the shape of You
I find You everywhere.
One look bathes my eyes in the Ocean of Love.
It humbles my heart
For You are all around me.
from The Sacred Garden of Truth, Hakam Sana'i
translated by Imam Bilal Hyde, April 2021
The third class in this series by Imam Bilal, Mukashafah with its practice of taqaddur (looking below the surface, seeing Allah everywhere) follows Mujahadah (struggling against the nafs) with its practice of tadhakkur (as much dhikr as you can do) and Muraqabah (witnessing) with its practice of tafakakur (dispassionately observing thoughts).
Remote attendance only (other than our audio-visual helper, Kevin) is planned using Zoom, with video of Imam Bilal. Advance acknowledgment if you plan to attend is very much appreciated (shukran). Please contact Subhana at firstname.lastname@example.org to register (suggested donation $50 to $100; available to regular contributors), and to arrange donations if you aren't local. Please make checks for donations to Nurani Institute, a religious 501(c)3 non-profit (or Zelle to email@example.com). Recordings available afterwards, same price as attending (included with registration). In any class, there may need to be changes based on Bilal’s perceptions of the needs of the moment.
