13. The Science of the Holy Book

God did not make man to be a stationary and silent cage, but a talking, moving, eating, drinking, and thinking human being. One of his footsteps covers the distance from the empyrean (Ursh). The eye of it needle and the openness of the sky, the distance from one star to another, these distances have only one meaning for him. He neither %tops anywhere nor allows himself to be distracted on his way. The only deplorable thing is that he doesn't know himself who he is and what the universe is? The unveiling of all these secrets is the greatest blessing that Prophet Muhammad (PB.U.H.) bestowed on mankind. Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) did not unveil these secrets on his own, but rather God unveiled them on Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) who then recorded them in the form of the Quran. He handed over this deposit to mankind contingent on his struggle and hard work throughout his Ilk. How well humanity took care of this deposit is very apparent. God says this knowledge is the knowledge of the book, and every human can take advantage of it whether his name be Zaid or Baqar.




What is the universe? It is a point, and this point is a divine light, and the divine light is itself a light.

Every point is the imprint of luminescence (Tajalli). When this imprint transforms itself into the divine light then it becomes Aura (Jism-e-Misali). The display of the Aura is the physical body.

The physical body is built up as a structure of bones, flesh, and muscle. The skin is a kind of plaster and color on this building. The life of the human being who is made up of veins, arteries, nerves, bones, and flesh, is nothing except senses.
