Part 1: The Holy Imam is the Face of Allah (Wajh Allah) and the Face of Aliyy (Wajh Aliyy) (Six more tawils)

In the first post of this series, I listed spiritual and luminous attributes of Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam. The first five tawils pertaining to the concept of Face of Allah (Wajh Allah) were presented in post number 3. In this post, let us explore five more tawils and a tawil on Wajh Aliyy.

1. Tawil of Wajh Allah: Face of the Mazhar of God:
 
"It is said in a Hadith: "God created Adam in His image." That is to say that, God appointed him as His representative and mazhar, and it is because of this that the leadership of the entire people was conferred upon him. (Lughat, "Sad", p. 109)."
 
(Source: A Thousand Wisdoms, Ta'wil No. 919, p. 479)
2. Tawil of Wajh Allah: Surat-i Rahman: Image of the Compassionate
 
"If God had created Hazrat Adam in His image and if people, according to a Hadith, are going to be in the image of their father Adam (i.e., the image of the Compassionate) when they will enter paradise, how then can there be any doubt in Mawla Ali's being the Face of Allah? The words of the Hadith are: "In the image of their father Adam, may peace be on him." (Bukhari Delhi, IV, 343; Cairo, IV, 160; Muslim, IV, 2184)"
 
(Source: A Thousand Wisdoms, Ta'wil No. 920, p. 479)
3. Tawil of Wajh Allah: Face of God, Destination of Annihilation:
 
"The surah of Rahman, due to its spiritual beauty, is called the Bride of the Qur'an. In this blessed surah it is said in verses (55:26-27): "Everyone that is on it (earth or the personal world) is perishable, there remains but the face of your Lord, the Glorious, the Bounteous", i.e., the representative of God."
 
(Source: A Thousand Wisdoms, Ta'wil No. 921, p. 480)
4. Tawil of Wajh Allah: Face of the Representative of God:
 
"Question: What is the relationship between the annihilation of people and the permanence of the Face of God mentioned together in the same above-mentioned verse?
 
Answer: The relation between them is that at the rank of Intellect where there is supreme didar of the Face of God (the representative of God, i.e., the Imam), there is pure wine of love and [spiritual] annihilation for the true lovers. This is the great secret of [spiritual] annihilation in the Imam, in which there is [spiritual] annihilation in the Prophet and [spiritual] annihilation in God as well. Praise belongs to Allah, the Lord of the worlds!"
 
(Source: A Thousand Wisdoms, Ta'wil No. 922, pp. 480-481)
5. Tawil of Wajh Allah: Face of God:
 
"It is said in verse (2:115): (Exoteric translation) "And Allah's is the east and the west; therefore wherever you turn, there is the face of Allah." Tawili meaning with respect to the personal world: O Arifs! in the personal world, wherever you have open didar without any veil, that is indeed didar. In addition, there is no place where His face and His vision from behind the veil is not found. So reflect carefully on all miracles one by one."
 
(Source: A Thousand Wisdoms, Ta'wil No. 923, p. 481)
6. Tawil of Wajh Aliyy: Face of Ali, Vision of Ali, Vision of the Imam of the Time:
 
"The holy Prophet has said: "To look at the face of Ali is worship ('ibadat)." (Sara'ir, p. 116). Why is it so? Because Ali is the Face of God, as he himself says: "I am the Face of God which He has mentioned in the saying: Wherever you turn, there is the Face of God." (2:115)"
 
(Source: A Thousand Wisdoms, Ta'wil No. 924, p. 481)

Part 2: Teaching of Pir Hasan Shah

The following verse is taken from Pir Hasan Shah's Ginan, Uncha re kot bahu vechna:

Eji itna re kop na kijiye
Sainya dije deedar
Pir Hasan Shah ni venti
Sainya taran aav....
Hoon re dashan bina bawri
Baalam ghere aav, Sajan ghere aav
Bandho bhooliyo tari bandagi
Sainya soorat batav ...
Hoon re darshan bina bawri
 
Of anger show no trace;
O Beloved, let me see Your Face.
This is what Pir Hasan Shah is praying –
O Beloved, lead me to a safe anchoring.
Without You, I am in dismay;
O Beloved, come with me to stay.
To worship You forgot this slave;
O Beloved, to see Your Face I crave.
Without You, I am in dismay.
