The Pure Intention: On Knowledge of the Unique NameBy: Iskandari, Ibn Ata Allah
The treatise itself is divided into two parts. In part one, Ibn Ata Allah discusses the name Allah from three perspectives: that of language, that of wisdom and that of gnosis; here, he also explains the differences between the Divine Names, Qualities and the name Allah. With part two, the author turns to the role of invocation, both in general and of the name Allah specifically. Ibn Ata Allah gives detailed arguments for how emulating the qualities of God as expressed in his names and invoking his supreme name with awareness of its meaning, can cleanse the heart and fill it with tawhid until it becomes a worthy abode for God. As the sacred tradition says: "Neither My Throne nor My Footstool can contain Me, but the heart of My servant can".
