(p.101) Praise
On Love

Rushmir Mahmutćehajić

Fordham University Press

Praise is the relationship between the Praiser and the Praised. And there is nothing in the horizons and the selves without it. The totality of creation is its widespread revelation. Man gathers it together and it is his uncreated core, so that there is no praise other than Praise. Honor, glory, and Praise belong to the Praised. Praise belongs only to God and, as His revelation in every phenomenon, it is made inseparable from the question of the relationship between life and death. The denial of life apart from Life is the condition for overcoming death. It is only through the return of all things to oneness and the recognition of it in the whole dispersal of creation that the Praiser recognizes the infinite closeness of the Praised in his love. As the image of the Praised, the self receives or reflects the properties of the Praised, thus becoming a witness of the Praiser as its model. And the Praiser is the most submissive, and as such is the most beautiful example in the manifestation of the Praised.
