KNOWLEDGE OF SELF

KNOWLEDGE OF SELF

From The Alchemy Of Happines – Imam Ghazali

Knowledge of self is the key to the knowledge of God, according to the saying: “He who knows himself knows God,” and, as it is written in the Koran, “We will show them Our signs in the world and in themselves, that the truth may be manifest to them.” Now nothing is nearer to thee than thyself, and if thou knowest not thyself how canst thou know anything else? If thou sayest “I know myself,” meaning thy outward shape, body, face, limbs, and so forth, such knowledge can never be a key to the knowledge of God. Read the rest of this entry »

NOT THEIR EYES THAT ARE BLIND BUT THEIR HEARTS

   Posted by: admin   in Islam, Kulihvani

Qur'An

َفَلَمْ يَسِيرُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ فَتَكُونَ لَهُمْ قُلُوبٌ يَعْقِلُونَ بِهَا أَوْ آذَانٌ يَسْمَعُونَ بِهَا فَإِنَّهَا لَا تَعْمَى الْأَبْصَارُ وَلَكِن تَعْمَى الْقُلُوبُ الَّتِي فِي الصُّدُورِ

‘Afalam Yasīrū Fī Al-’Arđi Fatakūna Lahum Qulūbun Ya`qilūna Bihā ‘Aw ‘Ādhānun Yasma`ūna Bihā  ۖ  Fa’innahā Lā Ta`má Al-’Abşāru Wa Lakin Ta`má Al-Qulūbu Allatī Fī Aş-Şudūri:

Do they not travel through the land, so that their hearts (and minds) may thus learn wisdom and their ears may thus learn to hear? Truly it is not their eyes that are blind, but their hearts which are In their breasts. [Qur’an Al-Hajj 22/46 ] Read the rest of this entry »

 

The Divine Roots of Human Love

Ibn al-’Arabi begins his long chapter on love (mahabba) in the Futûhât al-Makkiyya – as he begins most of the book’s 560 chapters – by citing relevant Qur’anic verses and prophetic sayings (II 322.16).[1] He points out first that love is a divine attribute, and he lists several of the Qur’anic verses in which God is the subject of the verb ‘to love’. Fourteen of these verses mention those whom God loves and another twenty-three mention those whom God does not love. In every case, the objects of God’s love or lack of love are human beings. Indeed, the Qur’an associates love only with human beings among all creatures. Hence love is a key term if we are to understand what differentiates human beings from other created things. Most other divine attributes – such as life, knowledge, desire, power, speech, generosity, justice, mercy, and wrath – have no necessary connection with the human race. Read the rest of this entry »

THE COMMENTARY OF DAWRI HINDI (BAKTASHI NAFAS)
Poet: Samih Rifat Bey
Explanation: Kul İhvanî
Translation: garibAN

By opening thousands of wings from the colour of light
The Sun has set in the scene of the sky
The land of being with the Beloved (Shabistan) is full of sorrow due to this field of emptiness
The heart is full of tears due to the state of the seclusion (of the Sun) Read the rest of this entry »

HAZRAT OWAIS-AL-QARNI (RA)

   Posted by: meryemnur   in Divine Love (Ilahi Ashq), Islam

HAZRAT OWAIS-AL-QARNI (RA)

Once the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him), while speaking to Sahaba-Ikram (companions), said: “There is a person in my Ummah (followers) whose prayers would bring forgiveness to as many sinners as the number of hair of the sheep in the tribes of Rabia and Mazar.” The two tribes were well known for raising sheep during the time of the Holy Prophet. The disclosure made the Sahaba-Ikram very curious. They asked the Holy Prophet about the name of that person and the place he lived in. The Holy Prophet first hesitated, but on their insistence told them the name of a person who lived in Qarn, Awais Qarni. Read the rest of this entry »

 

About Greeting (Salaam)

As related by Abu Hurairah, the Prophet (pbuh) said the following:

“I swear to Allah that you will not go to heaven unless you have faith. You will not be deemed to have believed unless you love one another. Should you do so, shall I tell you a way to love one another? Spread greetings among yourselves!”

(Muslim, Iman 93-94)

Faith, as it is described in the Holy Quran, is a concept that has roots penetrating into the depths of the earth, while its trunk and branches reach to the sky. It serves as the stairs that bring human beings to the awareness of the consciousness, allowing us to reach divinity as we climb, but bringing us down as we descend. Read the rest of this entry »

COMPLAINING ABOUT EVERYTHING, NEGATIVITY AND SELF-PITY

Self Pity

COMPLAINING ABOUT EVERYTHING, NEGATIVITY AND SELF-PITY

Humanbeing is created with a capacity and it is not expected from him to be faultless , sinless and perfect clear along his/her life. We are like the food plates. We get dirty and washed. Inability, poority, humility are good in the presence of God to crush ego then trusting God and patience on the straight path is required to crush self pity and complaints. The servant knows that he has a capacity and does as much as he can and seeks refuge to God when negativity starts creeping in: Read the rest of this entry »

RUMI’S MEETING WITH SHAMS


After Burhan al-Din Tirmidhi passed away, Rumi began lectur­ing in the madrasa in Konya and training students. He had tak­en his first lessons from his father, the king of scholars. On the one hand, Rumi lectured in the seminary, held conversations with those seeking the truth, and answered their questions; on the other hand, he guided the lovers of God and warned them.This way Rumi became the sultan of scholars in the religions sciences and other sciences, like his father, and he also became the sultan of gnostics in the area of Sufism. The public admired Rumi very much. In the view of the sultan, notables, and the common folk, he was known as a most elevated Muslim, an insan al-kamil, because of his devotion to worship, dedication to fasting and praying, virtues, humanity, graciousness, modesty despite his great knowledge, abstinence from the world, his commitment to the Muhammadi path just like his father, and his crystal clear life.

THE COMPLIMENT OF THE SPIRITUAL EFFECT(Ruhaniyyat) OF The RASULULLAH(Messenger of God) TO THE TRUE BELIEVER(MU’MEEN)


26 years previously, I was working as a Doctor in government duty in a small town. 6 months after I came to the town, the ‘mufti’
[1] of the province showed me a poor, dull eyed and illuminated faced old man whose name was Husnu Dede [2]. He was in his 80’s , had lost his five sons as  martyrs(shaheed) in the war squares, and was living with the support of his 50 years old childless widowed daughter making a living by washing clothes(laundress): Read the rest of this entry »
