27. Good and Bad

When God awarded Adam his vice regency, the angels said to God that Adam would be given to mayhem on the earth. But He made known to the angels that along with the attributes of quarrelsomeness and mischievous-making, Adam also had the potential for doing good deeds. God asked Adam to tell the creative attributes of God. And when Adam described the creative attributes and formulae at work in creation (the Names of God), then the angels exclaimed loudly "You are pure and noble, and we do not know anything except what you have bestowed on us. No doubt, You are the only one who knows everything. After deep deliberation on the matter, we can say that whatever the angels said God did not deny. The point is that until the descendents or children of Adam lack knowledge of the attributes of God, they are completely a symbol of brawling and quarrelsomeness. But after they acquire the knowledge of the attributes of God they become the symbol of peace.




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.
