56. Inconsistent in Friendship

Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) never accumulated wealth. The action of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) and the associates of Prophet (P.B.U.H.) was that even though they had at their disposal r accumulated wealth of Rome and Iran and an empire of twenty-five thousand square miles, these holy-hearted people fed their dependents by doing labour, and whatever they had left over they gave as alms. There is nothing more treacherous than wealth in this world. Weal has never been faithful to anyone. Wealth is inconstant in love and friendship. Wealth is such a treacherous reality that whoever worships it will be ruined by it. But the person who has contempt for wealth and instead of worshipping treads it underfoot will see that wealth ho down before him.




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.
