139. Sky and the Earth

Do not read the Quran as a means of future rewards of virtue or religious deeds and fortune. Nor decorate it to sit on the bookshelf. Instead try to reflect on it, for it is right for one to tender one's due. God has taken the responsibility for making the Quran understandable. 1 made the understanding of the Quran easy, so is there anyone who wants to understand?" In the light of this auspicious verse from the Quran, it is our duty that we make it a custom to reflect on the Quran by taking full advantage of this blessing of God. In this way our souls can be enlightened by the illuminations of guidance and we can acquire those attributes by which we humans can conquer the heavens and the earth.




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.
