“The visible world was made to correspond to the world invisible and there is nothing in this world but is a symbol of something in that other world.”

Source: Al-Ghazali, Ihya, in Margaret Smith, al-Ghazali, the Mystic, p.111

“We shall show them Our signs upon the horizons and within themselves until it is clear to them that He is the Real.”

– Qur’an (41:53)
