Allah, the Supreme Friend
Both Shaykh Nur and Shaykh Muzaffer’s knowledge of the body of Islamic mysticism was very thorough. They both encouraged intellectual inquiry. Shaykh Muzaffer said that the most important gift that a human being has is the intellect because it is the light of guidance within the heart. The intellect leads us to the Truth. According to Shaykh Nur “the illumined intellect is manna from Heaven.”
The study of Shaykh Nur’s and Shaykh Muzaffer’s writings is highly recommended, as well as those of Muhyiddin Ibn al-Arabi, Mevlana Jelaludin Rumi, Rabia al-Adawiya and the other great friends of Allah, may Allah Most High exalt their souls.
