The second knowledge, which has no limit at which one can come to a halt, is knowledge that pertains to God and the stages (al-mawāqif) of the resurrection. Knowledge of the resurrection's stages (stops) (al-mawāqif) will lead its knower to a preparedness for what is proper to each stage (mawqif). This is because on that day the Real Himself (al-Haqq, Allah) will make demands through the lifting of the veils; that is the Day of Differenciation (yaum-ul fasl) (37:21). It is necessary for all intelligent human beings to be upon insight (ʿala basīrah) (12:108) in their affairs and to be prepared to answer for themselves and for others in the stages (al-mawāqif) within which they know that answers will be demanded of them.”
SDG xvi, The Self-Disclosure of God; W C Chittick; p.xvi
"In any case, what Westeners call civilization, the others would call barbarity, because it is precisely lacking in the essential, that is to say a principle of a higher order."
René Guénon, East And West, 1924
