Tafsir al-Tustari

Did We not expand your breast for you?He said:‘Did We not dilate your breast for you, with the light of the Message (risāla), and make it a mine for the spiritual realities (maʿdan li’l-ḥaqāʾiq)?’He [further] said:The first expansion takes place through the light of Islam, just as He has said, Exalted is He, Whomever God desires to guide, He expands his breast to Islam [6:125].Then he said:Then He augments the degrees (manāzil) in addition [to this light], and the lights of [a believer] will be in proportion to the insights he has been granted.
