Asleep or awake, writing or
reading, whatever you do,
you must never be without
the remembrance of God.
[ Rumi(k.s) ]
إِنَّ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَاخْتِلاَفِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ لآيَاتٍ لِّأُوْلِي الألْبَابِ
'Inna Fī Khalqi As-Samāwāti Wa Al-'Arđi Wa Akhtilāfi Al-Layli Wa An-Nahāri La'āyātin Li'wlī Al-'Albābi :Behold in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alternation of night and day, there are indeed Signs for men of understanding,
الَّذِينَ يَذْكُرُونَ اللّهَ قِيَامًا وَقُعُودًا وَعَلَىَ جُنُوبِهِمْ وَيَتَفَكَّرُونَ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ رَبَّنَا مَا خَلَقْتَ هَذا بَاطِلاً سُبْحَانَكَ فَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ
Al-Ladhīna Yadhkurūna Al-Laha Qiyāmāan Wa Qu`ūdāan Wa `Alá Junūbihim Wa Yatafakkarūna Fī Khalqi As-Samāwāti Wa Al-'Arđi Rabbanā Mā Khalaqta Hādhā Bāţilāan Subĥānaka Faqinā `Adhāba An-Nāri : Such as remember Allah, standing, sitting, and reclining, and consider the creation of the heavens and the earth (and say): Our Lord! Thou createdst not this in vain. Glory be to Thee! Preserve us from the doom of Firee [Qur’an - Ali Imran 3/190-191]
Now I keep saying this again and again . When Rumi (k.s) is read without reading Qur'an, Rumi is not known dear brothers and sisters!..
Lets look together,
There are three positions are being mentioned in this verse, a being can not be in any other positions. He is either up, or sitting or lying which are three main positions for the humanbeing. Within this way, the verse tells the people who possess mind to remember ALLAH and they make Tafakkur in every moment.
Rumi says "Asleep ---> Corresponds to 'reclining:Junūbihim' in Qur'an 3/191
Awake ----> Corresponds to 'Standing: Qiyāmāan' in Qur'an 3/191
Reading---> Corresponds to 'Iqra: Reading in the word ,YadhKuRuna in Qur'an 3/191 and this is a part of remembering.
Writing --->Corresponds to 'Yatafakkarūna',"Considering -contemplating" in Qur'an 3/191.
Without Reading of "IK(Q)RA" you can not Write in to your mind by "TafaKKuR". Tafaqqur means if QuR'AN (Moment of IK(Q)RA ) reaches you and if it reads you then
Ta Fa KKuR : In Zahir and Batin you are read and this is written in your "Fa: within you" so that you can read inner and outer accordingly from what is read to you inside. Dear friend what is outside is written already by your mind but you are not reading it from outside as well!. Mind only reads what is within and perceives it as a written outside. If you are awake , you will know what reading and writing means and Who is reading it to you inshaALLAH. That is why the term Yadhkurūna(they remember) includes DHiKR within it. DhIKR includes IKRA(Reading) within it and in fact DHIKR means to Possess IKRA...After that TAFAKKuR comes in the verse above and it also includes IKRA as well. So contemplating comes after inside reads you and you read the outside after that. Then you read the heavens and the earth inshaALLAH.
Being Awake here means being in Standing position as mentioned in the verse as "Qiyamaan". Many muslims will know that when lean on something and if you are sleepy and if you struggle to keep awake , you close your eyes and the minute you will sleep you force your self to open it . If the person does this while leaning on something, his ablution is nullified.But if he is standing his ablution does not get nullified. Because he is regarded as AWAKE!...
So QiYAM position during the prayer is called AWAKENESS here!..Are We awake during prayer when we are in QiYaM(standing)?..
QiYaMat known as the Doomday or end of days or the Hour is when the awakeness comes.
"(It will be said:) Thou wast heedless of this; now have We removed thy veil, and sharp is thy sight this Day!" (Qur'AN -Al-Qaf 22)
We need to capture that moment in the position of QiYaM during the prayer. Qiyamat is not only a galactic end or destruction. It is also to turn in to nothingness which is represented in QiyaM as being awake and not heedless. Lets think about these together inshaALLAH. Saying of Rumi is not only repeating the name of ALLAH in every position , there are deeper things involved in these when Qur'an reads us inshaALLAH.
