Surat TA HA 20:114

Tycho crater on the moon
وَقُل رَّبِّ زِدْنِي عِلْمًا

"The incapacity to perceive Him is true perception" said the Noble Companion Abu Bakr Al Siddiq while in the abode of Perplexity مقام الحيرة
"العجز عن درك الادراك إدراك"
"Say My Lord increase me in Knowledge"!
Were you to know Him, he would not be Hu
Were He not to know you, you would not be you
By His knowledge He gave you being
With your limitations you worship Him.

Hu is Hu to Himself not to you
You are you to yourself and to Hu 
You are attached to Him, He is not attached to you.

The absolute circle is linked to the point
The absolute point is not linked to the circle
The point of the circle is linked to the circle 
The absolute Essence is not linked to you.
The Divinity of the Essence is linked to the Divine
As the point is linked to the circle. 

"Ibn Arabi Al Futuhat al Makkiah"
