If this statement becomes clear, the perfection of the creature is dependent on the realization of his 'Uboodiyah to Allah (AWJ). The more Al-'Abd realizes Al-'Uboodiyah the more his perfection will increase and the more his rank will be high. Whoever imagined that the creature can depart from Al 'Uboodiyah in any of its aspects, or that departing from it is more perfect, he will be of the most ignorant amongst all the creation. Such a one will be the most astray amongst them. Allah (SWT) said,
And they say: 'The Beneficient (Allah) has begotten children.' Exalted be He! Those whom they call children, (i.e. angels), are but honored 'Ibaad. They speak not until He has spoken, and they act by His command. He knows what is before them, and what is behind them, and they cannot intercede except for him with whom He is pleased. And they stand in awe due to their apprehension of Him. [Al Anbiyaa:26-28]; and He (SWT) said.
Indeed you have brought forth a terrible thing. Whereby almost the heavens are torn and the earth is split asunder and the mountains fall in ruins. That you ascribed children to the Beneficient (Allah). But it is not suitable for (the Majesty of) the Beneficient (Allah) that He should beget children. There is none in the heavens and the earth but comes unto the Beneficient (Allah) as a subdued 'Abd. Verily He knows their number and has counted them a full counting. And every one of them will come to Him alone, on the Day of Resurrection. [Mariyam:89-95]
