We rejoice in God by appreciating his creation, and use creation to try to understand God. Opponents of Sufism often charge it with having originated outside Islam, but a close study of the various schools of philosophy and theology, and a comparison with "primordial" Islam as revealed in the Koran and hadith (authentic sayings of the Prophet Muhammad), will vindicate the Sufis' claim of centrality, of strict adherence to the original purity of the Revelation.

This is awkward, since it is not clear that Kabbalah is really mystical. Now, we learn that the name of God, “El Shaddai” אֵל שַׁדּ, “el” < H410 >, “shaddai” < H7706 > in Exodus 6:3, means “God Almighty,” and basically means “powerful” and “strong.” Well …, however, to the kabbalists, it somehow means “all providing,” “all-sufficient,” and “multi-breasted” one.
