On emptiness…Secrets of Divine Love by A Helwa

“Allah is As-Samad which does not just mean “self-sufficient” but comes from a root that means “solid, impenetrable, non-hollow.” Allah is the One with no holes, no parts, no separation. Where Allah is metaphorically whole, we are nothing but holes. We are made from atoms, which are 99.99999 percent made of empty space. In essence, when we reach for anything in existence other than Allah, we are reaching for emptiness.
