Chapter No. 11 The Human Beings

When God Almighty wants to create anything, it immediately comes into being. The process of creation does not consume the resources. The word of Khaaliqeen draws our attention toward the fact that the creature can also create that thing out of the available materials of God almighty. Electricity is the best example of this, with the invention of electricity, many inventions were made. The electricity was already present in this world in the shape of raw materials. This is the quality of Creator that millions of things were invented with the help of electricity. It also means that energy and electric current were created by God Almighty.. Similarly, metal is also one of the creations of God Almighty. Thousand Creations that evolve only from just a single Creation

This is another blessing of God Almighty that it has bestowed the power and intelligence to the man for converting and using its creations to invent new things. This is due to the Supreme knowledge of God Almighty that He has granted to a man.

Sayings of the Holy Quran:

"We sent aforetime our apostles with Clear Signs and sent down with them the Book and the Balance (of Right and Wrong), that men may stand forth injustice; and We sent down Iron, in which is (material for). mighty war, as well as many benefits for mankind, that God may test who it is that will help, Unseen, Him and His apostles: For God is Full of Strength, Exalted in Might (and able to enforce His Will)." ·

(Surah Al Hadid:Verse 25)

If we consider the inventions of the period that spans over millions of the years, we find clear and vivid involvement of God Almighty.

The Light of the Heavens and the Earth

The Holy Quran says that God is the Light of the Heavens and the Earth; it means that the light is becoming the major cause for the creations of the earth and heavens. When man gets insight of this light, he gets the ability to make new inventions. Gold is a metal like iron, we make a bar of gold through the combination of the particles of gold; Similarly, we make casted metals. We also make girders, iron rods and other different products from the iron, this all happens when human beings ponder and understand the secrets of these creations. God Almighty is not dependent on anyone for the creations;

All the required resources automatically come into existence. The specialty of the man is that he ponders into the available resources, combines the available resources and invents the finished product. The storage of water in a dam is good example of this in order to generate the electricity.


The Journey of the Lights

The various steps of creation include the usage of light. When man learns enough about light, he gets deep insight about the waves of light on which the light travels. God is all Seer even from those curtains where no one can imagine, He knows the movement of even a single particle. He also knows that sub­ creations shall continue to grow by the man. Therefore God Almighty has called Himself the Supreme Creator, The greatest creator has created the man at His own shape, it means that the man has been bestowed the qualities of God Almighty as well.


Pre-Requisites of Learning

The learners of Tsawwaf should keep in mind this fact that the Spiritual faculties start developing where the worldly ones end, spiritual faculties are dependent on the unconsciousness. For example, we need a teacher, students and a school to acquire the worldly knowledge. Similarly, we have to make arrangements for the leaning of spiritual aspects. As soon as, the man is promoted to the next class, his mental faculties also flourish, a three year old fellow does not know ABC but through continuous practice, his mind senses the burden and this child gets a Doctoral Degree after the laborious work.


Three Dimensions of a Human Being

The human life is divided into three circles; Physics, Psychology and Para-Psychology. The knowledge of Physics and Psychology is granted by the Para-Psychology. There is also the revelation of the formulae about the creation of the Universe. The student of Tsawwaf gets an idea about the amount of knowledge that he possesses about the creation of the Universe. We learn through Para-Psychology, that no creation can happen in this world without a thought. Tasawwaf also tells us that a human being is the composition of the following three dimensions:

1.      Qualities (Sifaat)

2.      Being (Zaat)

3.      The Individual or the Introducer of this dimension that is called as man.


Delicate Lights (Anwaar)-Dense (Kaseef) Emotions There are two types of prints in the consciousness, one print (naqsh) has the storage of Delicate Anwaar whereas the other naqsh contains the selfishness, narrow mindedness and dense emotions. God Almighty has created everything with a fixed quantity; fixed quantities are dependent on the commands. When a man follows the commands of God Almighty, he feels elated and is liable to meet the sorrows if he deviates from the command of his creator.

The Saying of the Holy Quran:

"We have sent the man as our sub-ordinate"

The Khila_fat of man is conditioned with the llm-ul-Asmaa, if he does not know this llm, his Khilafat is not discussed, when God Almighty said that I wanted to have my sub-ordinate on the earth, angels raised objections adding that the man would bring turbulence on the earth. God Almighty commanded the man (Adam) to repeat what he has been taught, when Adam re­ produced what he was taught earlier, the angels admitted and said:

" we knew only that was taught to us"


The meaning is crystal clear here that the supremacy of the man is limited only to what he knows and what Angels and Jinns do not know. This knowledge has been transferred to the spirit of the man by the Creator. It is mandatory that a man should know his own spirit in order to seek this knowledge. The knowledge of matter and light (Noor) is also very necessary.



Many a scholar has written a lot about spiritualism and pantheism. One school of thought is of the view that as saints often used to wear wooly dresses therefore people would call them sufis. Wool is called sauf in Arabic. They used to wear such a dress, for it had been the habit of many a prophet, saints and pious people. According to some people, as they have been associated with the Ashaab-e-suffa that is why they are called sufis; whereas according to yet another school of thought the word sufi is linked with suf a.... but all these explanations are not satisfactory.

In fact, the terminological meaning of Sufi'ism (tasawaf) is self­ cleansing. It is the name of a true spirit that is related to conscience and the light of conscience is always inherent. A sufi always thinks in the context of Allah. His talk moves around Allah. He lives with Allah and dies in the name of Allah. He recites His words and always praises Him and remains enmeshed in His love. He sacrifices everything in order to see and meet Allah.
