Last day a person wrote about Deen(Religion) to me in a blog:
Gariban, everything you have written is based off of the collective assumptions of an ancient, uncivilized, biomechanical culture who all those millenia ago sought to explain the world through supernatural expression, rather than empirical scientific analysis.
I answered him in a blog and wanted to share this answer with you :
[Qur’an Surah Al Mumin- 40/ 82]
“Do they not travel through the earth and see what was the End of those before them? They were more numerous than these and superior in strength and in the traces (they have left) in the land: ye all that they accomplished was of no profit to them.”
There are a lot of things to write here by using science it’s self . Unfortunately the term “civilisation” is one of those terms perceived wrongly by public. They perceive this as communities which have adorned themselves with scientific, technologic devices and established big complex buildings, living in big nice houses, wearing suits at work, and within these communities people do whatever they like as long as they can legalise it.
A life being a pipeline between the kitchen and the toillette. A scientific community working all together to analyse and improve this pipeline between the kitchen and the toillette to make sure that the life in this pipeline can be more enjoyable for themselves without cutting the base desires of their flesh and ego. And fully equipped military to make sure that this pipeline will maintain it’s condition.
Well looking businessmen and trade force which are working in cooperation with their governments to find capital and finance by enslaving the poor countries in order to back up the expenses within these civilised pipelines. Plastic surgeons changing the community members’ breast size and body features and engineers improving methods and equipment to produce perfect shape bodies for the people who have complexes. Drug companies going to African Aid to advertise their company drugs not for helping people.
Dear friend, if I opened this pipeline here for you to reveal what is inside , I would not be able to finish listing here. That sort of civilisation is a grave with a tombstone and “civilisation” is engraved on it.
Just as human rights being perceived as”my rights” or “you can do what you like as long as you don’t limit my freedom”, the terms loose their real meaning within the communities driven by their ego. Civilisation is certainly one of those terms.
Science is not a private property of a particular group denying GOD. There are millions of religious scientists living amongst that crowd and I am one of them. Sir Isac Newton, Louis Pastor and many other well known scientists within the history were also religious. You may not know this because we do not label ourselves within the public as Christian or Muslim, or try to own the science like the others do. We know our limits. But for those who think that non religious people are the ones who made the advancement in science, I would advise them to have a look at that link :
Science is a manifestation of the knowledge of GOD who is AL-ALEEM(All knower) and it should be used in a good way not in the way of ego. When we study and work and if ALLAH wishes, ALLAH can manifest (Makes tajalli)with this name and we see the result as learning, understanding or discovering something. In reality our knowledge is HIS knowledge not ours. A simple crack within a vein in our brains can cause all our knowledge to go in a second then we become a walking vegetable. So fear GOD and remember this always.
Real knowing is to know one’s self . Real knowledge is divine knowledge. Other knowledge is only a necessity to survive and maintain one’s life and should come second compared to divine knowledge. Human does not even know what is going on within his body or he is not in control of his own body and mind, yet he thinks that he is the governor of the universe.
The pharoh was given magnificient knowledge about various things but his knowledge did not save him. He took him self as GOD. ALLAH is speaking to those who boost their technology and civilisation in Qur’an :
“Do they not travel through the earth and see what was the End of those before them? They were more numerous than these and superior in strength and in the traces (they have left) in the land: ye all that they accomplished was of no profit to them.” [Qur’an Surah Al -Mumin- 40/ 82]
A sufi shaikh Inayat Khan says:
The argument has been raised that all manifestation is due to the interaction of natural elements, working by their own force; every cause has its effect, and the effect again becomes a cause for the reaction; thus nature works unaided. The answer is, that every cause must have some preceding cause, or first cause, to produce it; and logically one cause may produce many effects, which effects again become second causes, producing new reactions, ‘While intellectual minds are seeking second causes, the wise man only perceives the first cause. Air, earth, water, being second causes, the precedent cause, which makes them act and pause, is hidden.’
We do not get stuck within second causes, we try to see beyond without being veiled by our ego.
Mr.Pliskin, empirical data comes from the experiments and analysis by making measurements using physical tools. What is examined, and the tools used, are made of the elements , air, earth, fire, water and ether. What do you think GOD is, or faith is? What are you measuring my friend? Are they some sort of a substance that you can put and analyse in the lab conditions. Where did you get that idea? Are you trying to find the painter in the paint?
Hidden things are manifested by their opposites, but as God has no opposite He remains hidden. God’s light has no opposite in the range of creation whereby it may be manifested to view’ (Jelal-ud-Din Rumi).
The tool to perceive GOD is the heart, but not the heart which is within your chest. That organ is only a station of the spiritual heart. If you want to perceive what we perceive, get your heart calibrated my scientific friend. Calibration of your heart is to make the heart rightly distinguish what is good and what is evil. If your scale is measuring wrongly, either calibrate it or be quiet as your measurements will bring calamity to humanity .
Our words are not to the scientists who know their limits.
With Peace and love
