Suhrawardi, an Islamic and Persian sage wrote:

The party of God will become divine, will praise God, will detach themselves and pass through the caves of the two mountains of Banu'l-Akhyaf to the two mountains of the Lesser Orient and Greater Orient, reaching the Gate of Gates.

Q. What does Suhrawardi mean by the "caves of Banu'l-Akhyaf"?

  • Banu al-Akhyaf بنو الأخياف in Arabic means siblings from the same mother but different fathers. – Medi1Saif Apr 19 at 9:06
