  A Question To Pose
   From WIE's Spiritual Roadmap (_e101)
A Question To Pose:
How do I find God?
Having answered it you must then set out to verify the truth of your answer by finding God in fact, not in theory.
Finding (wujûd) also has the meaning of existence or being.

Important: What is at stake here is not the mental or philosophical concept of Being, but experiencing God's Being as 'tasting' (dhauq).

Because of the fact that in this existence there is nothing but the necessary Existent, which is God - Allah, from which all other so-called existences or 'beings' are derived or 'on loan', there has to be in this life a constant lifting of those veils which separate us from God, therefore the above question of "how do I find God?" has to be reformulated into:
Question reformulated:
How can I remove the veils, that prevent me from seeing God?
[God is never really absent from us, only in our mind are we preoccupied with what is close to our desires, imaginations, ] [Therefore we have to understand the nature of our - selves / souls (nafs) and of the world (dunya) ]
[This we learn from religion (Islam), which brings us the revelation (qur'an), which is none other than knowledge from God - Allah, ladunnî]
