The Light of the Imam
Ultimately there is only Reality (Allah):
it is beyond creation and non-creation;
it is beyond life and death;
it is beyond the infinite and the finite;
it is beyond knowledge and ignorance;
it is beyond pleasure and pain;
it is beyond heaven and hell;
it is beyond nirvana and samsara
it is beyond the One and the many;
and yet the Real can be known.
From the very beginninglessness
the Real has shown its Light
and that Light manifested itself in the world of form.
From Imam Adam to Imam Karim Aga Khan IV
there has never been a time
when this world was without the Light.
The Imam’s Light reaches out
and sparks up the divine light within.
Light upon Light
and so we are raised up,
awakening into Reality
