“The learned have a secret, the vicegerents have a secret, the prophets have a secret, the angels have a secret, and beyond all of that God has a secret…”

(I had heard about this saying, and finally actually read it, and for some time I have pondered the weight of its meaning:)

Al-Rāzī reports the saying: “The learned have a secret, the vicegerents have a secret, the prophets have a secret, the angels have a secret, and beyond all of that God has a secret. If the ignorant came to know the secret of the learned, they would destroy them. If the learned came to know the secret of the vicegerents, they would break away from them. If the vicegerents came to know the secret of the prophets, they would oppose them. If the prophets came to know the secret of the angels, they would indict them. If the angels knew the secret of God they would fall down in bewilderment and pass away into ruin.”
