What is the position of the Sufi with regard to Christ? The question asked by Jesus Himself, "What think ye of Christ?" itself provides the answer. The emphasis is on the "ye." There are as many thoughts of Him as there are people who express them. The Sufi does not limit himself by expressing them. Christ is the name of his ideal, or Rasul as it is called in Arabic. All that centers in Rasul centers in Christ; the two conceptions are one. All the names and functions which have helped to form the conception of Christ, Prophet, Priest, King, Savior, Bridegroom, Beloved, all these are understood by the Sufi. By constant meditation he realizes all these aspects of the One, and beyond that Allah or God.
