19 At this point NÁbulusÎ cautions against excessive efforts at interpreting revelation and advises following the way of the ancestors (al-salaf), remembering that it is really only God and His prophets who know the full meaning of what appears ambiguous in the divine message. Having sought to establish the place of sin in the order of existence and to identify it as presenting different problems of understanding in relation to prophets, ordinary believers and others, NÁbulusÎ then turns to the classification of sins according to the Sharοa and the ÊaqÎqa.

It is not one of the things nor is it in the category of substances or of accidents, of knowledge or of fancies, of ideas or of understandings or of fantasies, of lights or of darkness or of flashes of light, of powers or capabilities. It is not above any of the things that we have mentioned or below them, nor to the right of them or to the left of them, nor on all sides of them, nor attached to or separated from them, nor within or without, nor does it lack anything of what we have mentioned, nor is it far from or near to them.

It is also reminiscent of the occasion on the Prophet’s night-journey to Jerusalem, when he chose to drink the milk of divine wisdom and guidance. In common with many other followers of Ibn ¿ArabÎ, NÁbulusÎ is also anxious to quell any potential criticism by the statement that he supports only those views of the shaykh that are consistent with the Qur’Án, Sunna and early consensus. Not everyone would be satisfied that this was indeed the case and that he did not follow his master and spiritual father in overstepping the mark and straying too far from core Islamic doctrines.
