God and the Praiser are in complete love. Here, faith is the identity of love and knowledge: the beloved has become the known. Every love of phenomena includes, directly or indirectly, following the Prophet. And that means to be the lover of God and His beloved. Through that opening up toward Praise for the sake of disclosing his essential conditionality, his exalted nature, and the most beautiful splendor, the human self withdraws before the Self as fullness and the oneness of being and knowledge: “The Prophet is nearer to the believers even than their selves”. The Praiser is the “place” in which love is revealed as knowledge, and the other way around. The Praiser accepts Praise in his complete submission and it transforms him into the one to whom the signs in the horizons and selves are submissive: they become the same as his self, they disclose the love of the hidden for manifestation.
