Abstract

SUBJECT AND OBJECTIVES: Manifestation is a Quranic word, and for this reason it had been of interest and importance to the Mystics. Manifestation is one of the most important mystical foundations which explains how multiplicity is realized in mysticism. There are many examples of manifestation in the holy Quran, such as: When the Lord manifested His Glory to the mountain, He turned it into dust and Moses fell down upon his face senseless. This study aims to investigate Manifestation verse mystically and explore the connection between the Divine Manifestation and the wayfaring voyage.
METHOD AND FINDING: The analytical-descriptive method of this research with a mystical interpretation of this Quranic verse about the Lord Manifestation to Moses, describes the truth of manifestation, its dimensions and types which are existential and intuitive (behavioral) manifestation. In this research we are going to see many important points such as the inclusion of the verse of manifestation of several types of manifestation from which the behavioral manifestation which is realized through the Moses’ spiritual journey which ended up at the point between the conversing station and  being a vassal (marboub). Moving from khalwa to jalwa abbreviates the Moses spiritual journey towards the Exalted in regards with the Divine Manifestation.
CONCLUSION: Since mysticism deals with manifestation in terms of its relationship with the worlds of existence and epistemological aspects of human being, so by mystical analysis of the manifestation verse in the Holy Quran, a correct understanding of manifestation and its connection with man’s spiritual journey, can be reached.
