Abul Abbas Ahmad Tijjani, may Allah be pleased with him, while commenting on Muhammadan Reality... or Haqiqat-l-Muhammadiyya, informed us that "When Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala created the Muhammadan Reality, He placed inside it all that He apportioned for the creation from the outpouring of knowledge, gnosis, secrets, manifestations, light, as well as the creation (itself) by way of all its rulings, necessities and requirements.
Also know that he, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, is now ascending in perfect witnessing of the Divine in such a way that no one else could ever hope for. This perfection will never end for the duration of an eternity of eternities. Regarding this, there is nothing within the essences of existence anything more worthy of respect or greater than this Muhammadan Reality nor purer or cleaner or more perfect.
Uwais al-Qarni, May Allah be pleased with him, said to Sayyadina Umar and Sayyadina Ali, may Allah be pleased with them both, when they met him: "You have not seen anything of the Prophet but his shadow." They replied: "Not even the Son of Abi Qahafa?" (Sayyadina Abu Bakr). He replied: "Not even the Son of Abi Qahafa."
He did not say that to them until he had reached into the depths of gnosis wherein he sought a place in the essence of the Muhammadan Reality. It was said to him: "This is an affair whose arrival is incapacitated for even the greatest of the Prophets, so it is hopeless for anyone in any aspect or state."
