O son, taslit and tashkir are two words I wish to memorize today. Thanks to one visitor who left a comment on one old posting of Lisan al-Din on The Real Knower.
We often hear our gurus talk about qabdhu state and basthu state which correspond to His attributes of Jalal and Jamal. In simple language the former means 'a bad day' (qabdhu state) and the latter, 'a good day' (basthu state).
So we learn from Ghawth al-Azam that the real knower is one who recognizes the action of Allah of inflicting us with bad things - taslit. And His ability to make good things happen to us - tashkir.
So on a bad day, remember the word taslit. On a good day, it is tashkir. Either way, Allahu Akbar! Allah is the Greatest!
