Description
 
The work presented here was originally written for delivery at a Mawlid celebration in Abidjan, Ivory Coast in 2011. It concerns Ma'arifa-Allah, the experiential knowledge of God, sometimes translated as gnosis or cognizance. Ma'arifa is often considered the essence of the Sufi path, and the reality of Ihsan: after al-Islamm (submission) and al-Iman (faith) comes al-ihsan (excellence), "to worship God as if you are seeing Him, and if you are not seeing Him, know that He is seeing you."
