The Equals Sign

Vertically, two lines that never touch, yet exist to explore the relationship between sides, the relationship of problem to solution.

Horizontally, one side of the equals sign does not create the other side, rather it brings the two sides together.

So 2+5=7, but they all existed as numbers prior to their relationship to each other being exposed by the equals sign.

So, whatever problem is the main problem facing you now, the solution exists already, it is just that the relationship between the components of your problem and their solution has not yet been connected.

What does this mean in practice?

It means that equality is a constant, it is not to be measured in itself, rather it is the catalytic realty that unites sides so that a “working out” can be shown to have been proved.

The equals sign is one of the 99 Names of God, it is al-Jāmi’

‘Abd al-Mu’min al-Jāmi’ ibn Hulli
