He is my beloved. Through him, I know HIM better

“It is said that after Muhammad (sallaLlahu a’layhi wassalam) and the
prophet’s revelation does not descend upon anyone else. Why not?
In fact it does, but then it is not called ‘revelation.’ It is what the Prophet (sallaLlahu a’layhi wassalam) referred to when he said, ‘The believer sees with the Light of God.’ When the believer looks with God’s Light, he sees all things: the first and the last, the present and the absent. For how can anything be hidden from God’s Light? And if something is hidden, then it is not the Light of God. Therefore the meaning of revelation exists, even if it is not called revelation.”
