The Seven Levels of Islamic spiritual growth according to the famous 17th century Chinese Muslim scholar, Shaykh Liu Zhi (God be pleased with him):
2-Iman (faith based on one’s innate nature and/or reason);
3-Mahabba (love), ishq (intense love), and shafaqat (compassion) in the inner heart;
4-Mushahada (contemplative witnessing of the Realities of Faith) and ru’ya (spiritual vision of the Truths of Faith);
5-Mahabba in the innermost heart, the heart of the heart;
6-Mukashafat al-Ghayb (mystical unveiling of the Unseen Realm) ;
7-Thuhur al-Anwar (the manifest perception of Divine Lights).
