Excerpt from Mystics and Saints of Islam

It is a customized in a few quarters to symbolize Mohammadan mysticism as simply a overdue importation into Islam, and an altogether alien point in it. yet besides the fact that a lot later Islamic mysticism could have derived from Christian, Neo-platonic, and Buddhist assets, there's little question that the roots of mysticism are to be present in the Koran itself. the next verse is an example: "God is the sunshine of the heavens and the earth. His mild is sort of a area of interest within which is a lamp, the lamp encased in glass - the glass because it have been a glistening big name. From a blessed tree is it lighted, the olive neither of the East nor of the West, whose oil might good nigh shine out even if hearth touched it no longer! it really is gentle upon light!" (Koran Sura 24)

Indeed it kind of feels unusual to accord the identify of "a sensible mystic" to Cromwell and to disclaim it to Mohammad, whose proclivity for non secular meditation used to be so robust that the Arabs used to claim "Muhammad is in love together with his Maker, and whose experience of the fear of the Lord" used to be so excessive that it became his hair upfront white. a number of the stated sayings of the Early partners of Muhammad exhibit that they shared this terror. "Verily, you shall see hell, you shall see it with the attention of simple task" says the Koran, and so they inspiration it very probable.
