This chapter presents Islamic teachings about the Name of God. Liberation from the habit of seeing the surface of signs enables us to remember that we are guests, and that nothing in the inner or outer worlds is ours. The Name of God is revealed to us in all the breadth of the earth, all the heights of the heavens and all that lies between. In the light of His Name, everything before us becomes recognized as a table spread from God. We are travelers on the path to Oneness, and all phenomena in the inner and outer worlds are only signs along that path. They too are all gathered within the Name.
