Divine Remembrance

It was through the blessings achieved by the zikr of the blessed name of God that Adam became rich with the science of names (‘ilm al-asmā’) and reality of things (Ḥaqīqat-i ashyā’) and became then the vicegerent of God on earth and the object of prostration of the angels (masjūd-i malā’ik).  For the names which were taught to him were, in reality, the names of God.  This teaching was given in the form of the spiritual miracles of these supreme names.  And all these blessings and felicities were based on the sacred àikr of the Supreme Name (ism-i a’ẓam), which was taught to Adam.
