Anal al haq is a famous controversial statement which leads to a painful execution of its first narrator. ‘Anal al haq’ was said by a Persian mystic Mansoor al-Hallaj (Mansur al-Hallaj). Anal al Haq means “I am the Truth.”
Mansoor Al-Hallaj was executed in 922 AD for having stated “Anal al Haq.” The Orthodox considered his act as blasphemy which he was claiming to be God. While he was only proclaiming in a state of uplifting spiritual ecstasy, a total annihilation of his ego.
What he meant was, there is no difference between God and me; God is me, I am God. Many followers believe in his words and continue to recite in their Sufi (Mystic) practices.
Anal al haq is state of dropping your ego and any impurity that comes between you and divinity. Mansur al-Hallaj also recited,
“I saw my Lord with the eye of the heart
I asked, ‘Who are You?’
He replied, ‘You.’
If you wish to read work of Mansur al-Hallaj, read his book Book of al-Tawasin.
