249. Interpretations

It is a tragedy that Muslims are not even in agreement on the interpretation of the Quran. There are infinite explanatory sayings about each verse of the Quran, and most of them are mutually contradictory. Yet the credentials of the writers of these exegetical commentaries on the Quran cannot be used as a basis for declaring which is the true interpretation. The result has been that the tree of differences became so corpulent, huge, and tall that whereas in the beginning only a few people sat under it, now the whole nation is lost in ignorance under it., 




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.
