His light spreads out and this operation expresses nothing other than the ordered unfolding of His attributes over the non-being. What is called 'the possibles' are those things which show themselves capable of receiving that light and those which are called 'the impossibles' are those which are unable to receive the light. It is to just this that the Prophet — upon Him be Grace and Peace! — alluded when He said, 'Allah created the creatures in the darkness, then He sprinkled them with His light. Those who were touched by some of this light are on the good way; and those who failed to be touched by it are astray.'

proverb

A proverb (from the Latin proverbium) is a simple and concrete saying popularly known and repeated, which expresses a truth, based on common sense or the practical experience of humanity. They are often metaphorical. A proverb that describes a basic rule of conduct may also be known as a maxim. If a proverb is distinguished by particularly good phrasing, it may be known as an aphorism.

Proverbs are often borrowed from similar languages and cultures, and sometimes come down to the present through more than one language. Both the Bible (Book of Proverbs) and medieval Latin have played a considerable role in distributing proverbs across Western Europe and even further.
