Verse 9: Elixir

Describing the potentiality of al-ʿaql, the author brings out in this verse and some of the verses that follow, how such potentiality could lead towards great achievements. He also points out the dangers of the misuse of the self-same potentiality. The art of Alchemy is to turn base metals like copper into gold. The person who practises this art relies on his knowledge of the property of mercury, of the base metal required to be transmuted and of the technicalities [...]

Verse 8: The Sun of Wahy

To better understand the significance of this verse, it is necessary, at this stage, to deal with the notion of matter. The Fatimi thinkers relate back the formation of the material world to the tainting and degeneration in the beginning of a section of the creation. A thing that is the subject of creation, we know, is indestructible. It is however capable of constant transformation from one form to another and by this continuous process of change may acquire the [...]

Verse 3: Pure in Source Serene in Origin

The author here gives expression to the Fatimi view that al-ʿAql al-Awwal realised that he was powerless to know the Creator and was the first to exercise tawhīd (the Oneness of Allah). He comprehends his own limitation that the created had no power ever to comprehend the Creator. As the first in Creation, he comprehends, that he being the created could not himself be the Creator. He comprehends himself by himself, as, he is the first and the highest in [...]

In this second verse, the subject of ʿaql in man leads on to the [...]
