The window of divine being

One and Many

The Sun’s shining essence is just one—always one,
but its rays spread out in every direction becoming many.
Each created thing is a separate colored piece
in the window of divine being
catching the light of the rays of its sun.
The essence is one, but its attributes are many.

—Ibn Muhammad Hadi Rida Quli Hidayat
