السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Muhammad Wafa is the fourth Fifth Imam of the Shadhili Tariqah and Ali Wafa is the sixth.

Ali Wafa wrote in mafatih al-khazain al-aliyya 17b:

"Know that al-Khadir is the manifestation of what is hidden in the Trust of Moses, from the Spirit of Lordship. Therefore, his (al-Khadir)'s external (acting) by which he manifested himself, was interpreted (in the Qur'an) as belonging to the "footsteps" of Moses and his attendant (Q 18: 64), while (al-Khadir's inner reality) is his being "one of the servants" of the essential Secret of unification and of the blessing of Nearness. (Q 18: 65)"

Ali Wafa wrote in mafatih al-khazain al-aliyya 17b:

"The Praiseworthy, Independent Haqq, disclosing Himself by this al-Khadir to Moses and his attendant as He manifested Himself through His Spirit, sending it down to Mary as a well-formed man, said, "They (Moses and the attendant) returned along their footsteps" to its (the spirit's) manifestation, by which He (had) manifested to her, so they would perceive him (as she did), by their bodily senses, as a well-formed man: "So they found one of Our servants" (ie al-khadir) (Q 18: 65)."

Ali Wafa wrote in mafatih al-khazain al-aliyya 18a, 18b:

"When (Moses) following (of al-Khadir) ceased with "the interpretation of that for which you were not able to have patience" (Q 18: 78) from the governing of supremacy, because he (Moses) was at the level of the Trust, he (al-Khadir) explained to him the (significance of the) events. The latter continued to unveil from the face of supremacy veils by his speech, "I wanted" (Q 18:79) and "You made holes" (Q 18: 71). Then he said "We feared" (Q 18: 80) and "We wanted" (18: 81), so that the secret from its husk appeared to him (Moses) by his (al-Khadir) saying "Your Lord wanted that they should reach maturity and get their treasure out (from under the Wall); a mercy from your Lord. I did not do it on my own accord" (Q 18: 82). Then it (the Spirit) informed him, as it appeared to him, by (the way he) put what he had done as coming by his own accord and none other. By this it was known that this manifestation (of the Spirit) is the "interpretation of that for which you (Moses) were not able"-when it self-disclosed upon the mountain-"to bear" (Q 18: 78)"

Ali Wafa wrote in mafatih al-khazain al-aliyya 18b:

"Likewise, the Spirit of the esoteric dominion of Jesus's Trust manifested to Mary as a well-formed man, saying according to its personification, "I am a messenger from your Lord; to you will be the gift of the holy son" (Q 19: 19). And He made him a sign to the people and a blessing from Him (cf Q 19: 21). This was a completed matter when he unveiled for her the face of the Creator by saying "So (it will be). Your Lord has said "For Me that is easy."" (Q 19: 21)

Comment: So for Ali Wafa, there is a Ruh of Syadah (spirit of Lordship) which is the manifestation of Allah, and this Ruh appeared to Musa on the mount Tur, but he could not recognize it, same al-Khidr was a manifestation of this Ruh, and this Ruh also manifested to Maryam. So for Ali Wafa, Allah Himself appeared in this Angel and in Al-Khidr.

فهذا هو الذي أردت أن أنبه إليه ، فإن أصبت فمن الله. وإن أخطأت فمن نفسي، والله تعالى أسأل أن يعصمنا وإياكم من الزلل ومن كل ما لا يرضيه. وآخر دعوانا أن الحمد لله رب العالمين
