6. Outcome

This period of time in which you and we are struggling and living; unfortunate life is one in which everywhere we can see the incursion of materialism, which is slowly and gradually moving towards its end. The intense light of materialism implies a darkness of vision and pathetic effect, but it lacks elegance and spiritual vision. Materialism does not offer serenity, so the edifice built on a base of materialism w not be everlasting. One day it will collapse. This is the system of nature and there is no remedy for it. It is the obligation of Muslims to try their best to learn the worldly or scientific knowledge and its excellent virtues and so designate themselves for the topmost positions in t. world. Yet it should not be forgotten that this materialistic development and the wealthy life are not the only purpose of life. We should concentrate our efforts more on our vision of the soul than on the visit of the body.

As Alama Iqbal, the Poet of the East, declares:


Pray that God will give us a heart that can see Him.

For the light of the eye that sees the world

Is not the divine light of the heart that sees God. 




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.
