`Oḅadyah Maimonides: "All is revealed to him"

"Rabbi `Oḅadyah, the eminent Sage to whom mysteries are revealed, in whom 'light, understanding and wisdom like the wisdom of the angles are to be found' (Dan. 5.11), 'no secret mystifies him, he lies down and all is revealed to him.'" (Dan 6.6) - From a Genīzah document, on the Judeo-Sufi rabbi `Oḅadyah Maimūnī (Grandson of the Rambam)
