145. The Developed Mind

Everywhere we hear the rumor that the young generation is forsaking Islam and that they do not follow the example of their ancestors. Why is it that we do not think that we are also included among these ancestors? If the present generation has left the teaching of Prophet Muhammad (PB.U.H.) then the present generation is not as much at fault as we are. For when we see that our parents are preaching the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) but are not following them themselves, then in the developing minds of the young generation the only thing that comes to their mind is that religion is only the name of a way to describe something but which has nothing to do with action.




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.
