Hudal-lil-Muttagiin; 'Allaziina yu'-minuuna bil Gaybi (This book sheds Light on those whose hearts are turned to God). Gayb means those truths which are not apparent to the natural observation of a man, and all such truths are related to the knowledge of God. The meaning of belief is certainty or assurance. The meaning of certainty is that truth which always wanders and seeks, not because the search brings remuneration but because it seeks to satisfy the longing. The meaning of Muttaqi is that person who uses his wisdom to deepen his understanding of all things and at the same time does not allow skepticism to come close to him. He is careful about God that no aspect of the universe can deceive him. He recognizes God very distinctly and knows His handiwork very distinctly.




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.
