The Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan

Now you may ask: "What has man lost?" The answer is: God himself, that perfect intelligence that is in every being, that intelligence that the Vedanta calls light. In the Qur'an it is said that God is light, which means that the light of God is immanent in the world of names and forms, in all that exists in this world of variety. In this world of variety different forms of activity are producing different results. Yet man in this life of illusion has the same intelligence, the perfection of which he can realize in that state of consciousness where he is aware of his own perfection.
