CREMATION or BURIAL

   Posted by: admin   in Islam

Cremation or Burial ?

I have not heard a mentioning of any prophet being cremated in Qur’an or Bible. Whose custom are those cremated following ?

The cremation is defined in wikipedia as below:

 “Cremation is the process of reducing human remains to basic elements in the form of bone fragments through flame, heat, and vaporization. Contrary to popular belief, the cremated remains are not ashes in the usual sense, but rather dried bone fragments that have been pulverized in a device called an electric cremated remains processor. This leaves the bone in a fine sand like texture and colour, able to be scattered without any foreign matter.”

The cremation process has been quite popular in the western society recently. I can’t understand how some Christians  follow this process either. This process is not carried out in islamic communities. I will explain the reasons as much as I can think of here from a muslim man’s point of view. Here it goes:

7 Colors and 7 Levels of the Soul(Nafs)

   Posted by: admin   in Islam, Kulihvani

7 COLOURS AS THE LANGUAGE OF THE EYES
7 LEVELS OF SOUL( NAFS) AS THE LANGUAGE OF THE HEART

By Latif YILDIZ (KULIHVANI)


A lightless eye, a soundless ear and a senseless heart is like the dead..
Insan
[1], who looks at the Uni-VeRSe by using his Aql(mind), will see the
colour of the System, will hear it’s Sound and sense it’s Cause and
Effect. Everything within the universe(Alam) exists within Adam as well.
Every knowledge, the finding and the formation wihtin the universe and applied
science exist in Muhammadian Tasawwuf
[2] as well.

Normal human mind(Aql) will Cognize, Meet, Form with the
Transmission of Divine Knowledge(Ilahi
Naql) and act it’s roles in the play of
servanthood(Abdiyyat)which is a test of opportunities, in order to
comprehend and live by it’s own destiny and capacity.

While Material,The Event and Time is coming and passing by as Sunnatullah (Operating system of ALLAH [3]) , will see it’s appearance, attitude and manner in the source of Will of God (Muradullah) and live in the light(Noor) of the Command of God (Amrullah). It is really wonderful to read, understand and live the applied science in the divine knowledge and Muhammadi Manner of Mind(Aql) in order to experience the cycle of knowledge(ilm)-will power(irada)-comprehension(idraq)-participation(ishtiraq), which is a must in every situation.
How magnificient the unification of 7 colours in science and 7 level s of Soul(Nafs) in Tasawwuf.

SEVEN LEVELS OF BEING(NAFS)

   Posted by: admin   in Islam


SEVEN LEVELS OF BEING(NAFS)

By Shaikh Tosun Bayrak Al-Jerrahi

 

From the beginning of our entrance into the school of Sufism, we have been taught about the seven levels of being. These seven levels are like grades in any educational system which one must pass through in order to graduate. In our system, however, evaluations are made by a Higher Authority than the teacher.


Passing and failing grades are made known through real dreams, through the interpretation of which the teacher gives new responsibilities and duties to the seeker. But what is most important is that the seeker himself should be able to realize his own states so that he can live up to the next level to which he aspires. Obviously, first it is necessary that he be conscious, aware of his character and actions, and be sincere in looking at himself. But it is also necessary to thoroughly know the characteristics of each level, especially the level in which he is presumed to be, and the next level, in which he hopes to be.
