‘ILM AL-YAQÎN - علم اليقين



1-‘Ilm al-yaqîn: Acquiring certain knowledge with the way of ‘Ilm. That is, knowing the existence of something with its proofs.

2-‘Ayn al-yaqîn: Acquiring certain knowledge by seeing. That is, the way to know something by seeing with the eye.

3-Haqq al-yaqîn: Acquiring certain knowledge with the haqiqah of knowledge. That is the way of knowing something by getting inside of it. We explain these three words by the lesson we took from our beloved Ustadh Hazrat Bediuzzaman. For example: If we see some smoke from a far distance, we will know that there is a fire. This is called ‘Ilm al-yaqîn. If we get closer to that smoke, we will see the fire with our eyes. This is called ‘Ayn al-yaqîn. Then if we get inside the nûr of the fire, we will understand the heat of it. This is called Haqq al-yaqîn” Miftah-ül Îmân-93
