Extract from “The Absolute Argument”

The Name Allāh is the absolute Argument in the face of that cascade of absurdities which is the world. Therein lies an invincible axiom leaving no room for discussion; to ask “why” is already to disbelieve. The Name Allāh is our refuge from the din of earthly existence; the world, however it may rage, cannot possibly offer an argument stronger than this Name. We have no right to dash ourselves against the wall of the absurd, and we cannot put the blame on All-Possibility. The divine Name answers intellectually and existentially all problems, whether we are aware of this or not. To pronounce the divine Name is at once to die and be reborn.

“Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.”
