Jalaal state


Asalamualaikam wr wb
Ya shaykh Hisham

I wanted to ask you what is “jalaal“. I read many awliya were very jalaal and had extremly jalaal eyes, such as Shaykh Sabir Pak qadassalahu sirru hul azeez and Shaykh Khalid al Baghdadi And Sayidina Abdul Qadir JILANI. Or they used to come into a state of jalaal.


wa `alaykum salam,

Jalal is complementary to Jamal, as Might and Power are to Beauty and Love. The Jalal and Jamal that manifested in the witnessing of the great Saints when that rank was manifest in them could overtake the beholder and result in being completely overwhelmed.

Dr. Bazaraa
