Aphorism: Progressive understanding of the unchanging revealed truth

In Islam we must learn to correctly distinguish between the unchanging revealed truth and our changing understanding of that revealed truth. That Allah is God and that Allah is the Creator and Sustainer of the physical existence in an unchanging revealed truth. How well we can understand the nature of Allah and how well we understand the processes by which Allah creates and sustains the physical existence are constantly undergoing progressive change. It is against the true nature of Islam to at any point believe that the changing understanding of revealed truth is in fact the unchanging revealed truth.
