JAHEEL (IGNORANT-ILLITERATE-UNLETTERED)

Jaheel(ignorant-illiterate-unlettered):

-What is Jaheel? It is to love others than Allah. We call them jaheel, not the ones who do not know how to read and write. There are so many people who have read libraries of books and they had degrees as scholars but  they have no idea about the haqiqat(truth) and no naseeb from it. There are so many ummis(unlettered ones) that they have seen the truth and established relationship with it, although they do not know how to read and write. Now, they are those who we call alim(wise).

Sabiha Hanimefendi: There have been so many people migrating from this world(alam) to the other world. Many have gone…
-Of course,  there are ones who can not pass the class as well as the ones who pass in the exam and pass the class…
It is better to do two rakats of salah(prayer) by understanding rather than doing 10000 rakats(cycles) of salah from morning to evening. That is why, the work is not in multitude, but in meaning.
