For in Truth, your existence is a reflection of the divine. He manifests Himself every instance in yet another way. Every moment of your life is another reflection, a manifestation of the divine. So how can you, your physical biological life, be a sin?


Dear reader, know that…

Allah has created the worlds in His knowledge.

All reflections and manifestations pertain to Him. The return is to Him!

You too will return to Him when the time comes for the manifestations to end. But how?

Surely you have heard the command “Die before you die”. This means, “Become aware of your essential reality before you are forced to do so.”

The world is the prison for the believer! When the believer dies he is freed from this prison. So, pass through the passage of death willingly and reach eternal bliss and happiness! Eternal bliss and happiness lies beyond death. So, what are you waiting for?

If you’re asking, “But how can I willingly die?” I say, by abandoning your illusory self and all your ambitions and desires! Be like a corpse who no longer has any desires. Stop wanting things and be pleased with your state. Indeed, contentment is an elevated station.

“Well-pleased is Allah with them, and well-pleased are they with Him (the reflections of divine qualities)... This is for he who is in awe of his Rabb!”[1]

Neither seek the world or the hereafter. Let your only concern be to be in service to the trusts of your Rabb and to be a cause for good to reach others.

If you want to pray let your prayer be, “My Rabb, make me a vehicle for your good, make me of those you choose for yourself”, so that good may occur through your hands and mouth.

When you are doing something ask yourself, “Why am I doing this?” Check to see if your answer is “For Allah” or “For myself”… The inclination of your heart will reveal your true intention. It is no use to claim your intention is one thing while your heart's desire is something else, even though you may deceive yourself into believing it…

“Actions are according to intentions” says the Rasul of Allah (saw)… And he also says, “The intention of a believer is better than his actions”… So, take this seriously until you can ask yourself, “Why am I doing this?” and your answer is “Because my Rabb wants me to “… But know, even this state will be temporary. If you are of the qualified, after some time there will be neither intention left nor any thoughts… You will go with the flow, not knowing or needing to know where you are going, only becoming aware as things transpire.

Then you will reach a state in which you will know that the doer, behind all seeming doers, is Him alone… Words will be insufficient from this point on.

Before this you were able to say, “I” or “You” or “We”, but in this station such words will not hold different meanings – all of it will point to the same reality.

You will know then the ground on which you walk is not the same ground upon which you walked before…

“During that period the earth (the body) will be replaced by another earth (another body) and the heavens as well (individual consciousness will also be turned into another system of perception)!”[2]
