HUJJATU ‘L-HAQQI ‘ALA ‘L-KHALQ حجة الحق على الخلق
lit.. “The demonstration of truth upon the creature.” A term used by the Sufi mystics for the Insamu ‘l-kamil, or the “perfect man,” as Adam was when he proceeded from the hand of his Maker, and whn he became a demonstration of God’s wisdom and power before the angels of heaven. As is stated in the Qur’an, Surah ii. 29: “Thy Lord said I am about to place a viceregent (khalifah) in the earth. (‘Abdu ‘r-Razzaq’s Dict. of Sufi Terms.)
