Wise Qur’ān and The World of Humanity 2
Ḥaz̤rat David asked Almighty God: “O my Lord! Why did You create creation? God said: I was a hidden treasure, and I wanted to be recognised, I created creation so that I may be recognised” 47. The unique and everlasting treasure of azal, which is kept secret in the sacred Sanctuary of the personal world of the Perfect Man, is mentioned in this sacred ḥadīth. Here by creation is meant the spiritual and intellectual creation, because without it nobody can attain the recognition of God, nor can that precious treasure be available to anyone.
