Resim

Whomsoever’s soul (jan) is purified of the “shahwat (lust)”, rage and the nafsanic desires (desires of the soul), that person will see the world of “ma’na” [1] and the palace of “ma’na” quickly.
Our Master Hd.Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam, wherever he looked, he used to see the wisdom (hiqmat), power (qudrat) and the creative power of ALLAH there, because he was purified of the fire of rage and the smoke of “shahwat (lust)”. [2]
Oh the one whose eyes and heart are unopened,
As long as the nafsanic desires which are urging you to the villainy, are a traveling companion to the whispering (waswasa) of the Satan (Shaiytan),
How could you reach to the secret of the verse, “wherever you turn, you will turn to the blessing (lutf) and grace (rahmat) of Allah.” [3] How could you understand what this is?
In whomsoever’s heart, a door is opened, he will see a sun in every atom (zarra).

GLOSSARY:

[1] Ma’na: (Alternate spellings: Ma’Na’, Mana, Manâ) Ma’na’ MeaNs spiritual MeaNing. It is the inner face of something. Inner hearings e.g. notion, thought. The spiritual glimpse. lit. “meaning,” “significance”; spelling in Turkish, manâ, ma’na. In sufism, it means spiritual meaning, spiritual reality. This word is in the title of Mawlânâ’s mathnawî: Mathnawî-yé Ma`nawî (rhymed couplets of spiritual meaning).Ma’na is the reason (SaBab) for an action to occur.) Things manifest through the haraqa (vowel point, vowel mark in Arabic script) of this single point. Our Lord (Ar-Rabb) does not count the all things created one by one as matter or Ma’na, and reduce the all things to a single pen and call this ‘Kulli Shay: Whole Thing or Total thing or Everything’. “Ahl-i Ma’na”: Friends of God who live the spiritual reality or the world of ma’na.

[2] A Lover (Ashiq) of Haqq had said a couplet in that meaning: “The Universe is the mirror of the beauty of our Beloved One. His beauty and His power manifests in every atom.”

[3] This refers to the verse below:

وَلِلّٰهِ الْمَشْرِقُ وَالْمَغْرِبُ فَاَيْنَمَا تُوَلُّوا فَثَمَّ وَجْهُ اللّٰهِ اِنَّ اللّٰهَ وَاسِعٌ عَلٖيمٌ

“Wa Lillahi Al-Mashriqu Wa Al-Maghribu ۚ Fa’aynamā Tuwallū Fathamma Wajhu Al-Lahi ‘Inna ۚ Al-Laha Wāsi`un `Alīmun :
To Allah belong the East and the West: whithersoever ye turn, there is the presence of Allah. For Allah is All-Embracing, All-Knowing.” [Qur’an, Al-Baqara, (2/115)]

Turkish Original:

Kimin canı, şehvetten , hiddetten, nefsani arzulardan arınmış, temizlenmişse, o kimse mânâ alemini ve mânâ sarayını çabucak görür.
Hz.Muhammed Sallallahu Aleyhi Ve Sellem Efendimiz, hiddet ateşinden ve şehvet dumanından arınmış olduğu için, nereye baksa, orada, Allah’ın hikmetini, kudretini, yaratma gücünü görürdü.
[1]

Ey gözü ve gönlü açılmamış kişi, seni kötülüğe sevkeden nefsâni istekler,
Şeytanın vesveselerine yoldaş oldukça; “Nereye dönseniz, Allah’ın lûtfuna, rahmetine dönersiniz.” Âyetinin sırrına nasıl erersin? Bunun ne olduğunu nasıl analrsın?
[2]

Kimin gönlünden bir kapı açılırsa o, her zerrede bir güneş görür.

[Hz.Rumi, Mesnevi 1.Cilt, Şefik Can Tercemesi, Beyt 1396 -1399]

[1] Bir Hakk âşıkı şu meâlde bir beyit söylemiştir: “Cihan bizim sevdiğimizin güzelliğinin aynasıdır. Her zerrede onun güzelliği, kudreti görünmektedir.”
[2]
وَلِلّٰهِ الْمَشْرِقُ وَالْمَغْرِبُ فَاَيْنَمَا تُوَلُّوا فَثَمَّ وَجْهُ اللّٰهِ اِنَّ اللّٰهَ وَاسِعٌ عَلٖيمٌ

“Ve lillahil meşriku vel mağribu fe eynema tuvellu fe semme vechullah, innallahe vasiun alîm: Maamafih, meşrık de Allahın mağrib de, nerede yönelseniz orada Allaha durulacak cihet var, şüphe yok ki Allah vasi’dir alîmdir.” [Bakara Suresi, (2/115)]
