Dr. Vahid Rafati explores the legacy of Kumail Nakha'í, a close companion of Imam `Alí bin Abí Tálib, and discusses major Islamic Traditions (Hadíth) Kumail has narrated.
This extended version of Dr. Rafati's lecture examines the Traditions: What is the Truth, Hadíth of Hearts, and the well known Du'á (Prayer) of Kumail and references to them in the Bábí and Bahá'í literature.
This title is taken from Rúmí's Mathnaví (I,116), translated by R.A. Nicholson as “The proof of the sun is the sun (himself): if thou require the proof, do not avert thy face from him!"
