The space inside of an eye magnifies a small thing and projects it to be larger than it is. Therefore, while the size of the world in this universe is a dot upon a huge dome, mankind assumes it to be gigantic.

The fish of a river assumes the river to be their world and remain happy within it, in the same way, the heart of mankind is entangled in this world. Mankind does not want to exit this world as they believe there is no other world like this. Worlds more exquisite than this world exist, wherein the speed of senses is much faster, and they all lay expectant of the arrival of mankind. The status of mankind is much higher than what it has reduced itself to. Thought is a creation that leads mankind to progress and zenith, while ‘interference in the thought process’ is what regresses them. What are progression and regression then?

“Seest thou not how God coineth a similitude: A goodly saying, as a goodly tree, its root set firm, its branches reaching into heaven, giving its fruit at every season by permission of its Lord? God coineth the similitudes for mankind in order that they may reflect. And the similitude of a bad saying is as a bad tree, uprooted from upon the earth, possessing no stability.” (Quran, 14:24-26)

Thought is related to the subconscious world. Mankind remains ignorant of what a thought is unless and until it expresses itself as an image. They are acquainted with the image instead of the thought. When the shape and form of the image form on the screen of one’s mind, the individual begins to interfere with it and attempts to colour it as per their apprehensions, reservations, delusions, and desires. Though it is complete, the image is not a reflection of the original as it is adulterated with doubt, and hence we refer to it as ‘fiction’.

When there is adulteration, the creation does not remain pure, that is, it is not in its true state. The external elements, which in the language of research and quest (science) we call ‘foreign bodies’, have been infused in it. As the external elements are diverse from the object, they cannot enter it. The true state always remains intact and it must remain so for continuity in the system, failing which the system will be in disarray.

Observation: When we place ice outside a refrigerator, foreign bodies enter it and the ice melts into a liquid state. It is important to note that the foreign bodies did not enter the true state of the ice. What we think is ice, is in fact, a cover over the true state of the ice. The foreign bodies affect the cover as it is also made out of foreign bodies. This example holds good for the physical body and all other objects. If the foreign bodies entered the true state, everything would cease to exist. This is why God Almighty has created everything in fixed proportions and unique formulae so that the external elements (foreign bodies) are unable to enter them. 

One must understand that the external elements do not enter the creation, instead, they accumulate around its outer surface in such a way that they form a cover around it*. Those whose sight is limited to the surface, observe the cover made of foreign bodies and think that it is the reality; this is how fiction is birthed and reality is hidden.


That which is not adulterated is pure and is maintained in its true state. Their roots are firmly planted in the ground, and remain steadfast on the foundation upon which they are created. They do not accept the influence of external elements and turn their focus toward a pure entity and sanctified environment for their growth and development. When their contemplation takes off, it reaches the height of the skies.

In spirituality, the sky is linked to the subconscious; a creation that cannot be comprehended within the limits of the consciousness of the earth. Earth is a place where dimensions are manifested and there are boundaries everywhere; the mountains have their own boundaries, the sea remains contained within its shores, and even dry land has its boundaries. Every creature is encapsulated in a cover. It is worthy to contemplate the fact that on earth, our sight stops at every short distance that it covers, however, this is not true for the sky. The sky (subconscious) subdues the dimensions and shows everything as one.  The sky takes sight to a speed at which the journey of various zones is covered all at once. 

*Elders advise to always wash fruit before eating.

When the sky subdues the dimensions and shows every creation on the inside in one colour and light, then, spatiotemporal distance cease to exist i.e. near does not remain near and far does not remain far, and the sight sees only One Entity everywhere. What is this One Entity? God Almighty has stated,

God is the Light of the heavens and the earth.” (Quran, 24:35)

Apparently, heaven and earth are two different stations, however, the Noor (a stage of Divine Light) in them is one. The sight which does not observe Noor, sees the earth and sky as two different stations. The stations are subdued in the sight of those who are blessed with the insight of Noor and they see the Noor of God everywhere.


Look up and observe the sky before you read this article any further. Life exists in the sky; there are galactic systems such as the moon, sun, and stars. Every star is a world on its own, and in these worlds, creatures and resources for life exist. The planets in the sky are visible in such a way that the distinctiveness of the inner and manifested sides of the sky is maintained, that is, the dimensions are          not visible.

The spiritual senses inform us that sight is a sense; it is independent and takes on the responsibility of being a carrier. Like all other senses, the sense of sight is on a constant journey. The reality is that an individual does not see, rather, they follow the sense of sight according to the capacity of their consciousness. When one sees a wall, their sight passes through the wall, however, as their conscious stops at the dust, they think that there is a wall before them. The sight has passed through the wall – it is the limited conscious that has lost awareness of its sight. In this same way, when one looks at the sky, they lose track of their pursuit of sight and do not know where it went and therefore, consider the memory of the last impression as the sky.

One’s relationship with purity depends on how aligned they remain to their subconscious, in their conscious states. As per the ordinance of God Almighty, purity in thought bears fruits in every moment – and in every moment it brings forth new glories.


“And the similitude of a bad saying is as a bad tree, uprooted from upon the earth, possessing no stability.” (Quran, 14:26)

Impurity is adulterated by doubt and does not remain constant in its true state. Mankind nourishes it with the water of doubt. Doubt shows a single object as two or more. As one fails to remain stable in one state, their roots begin to shake and, in the end, get uprooted. For growth, flowering, and bearing fruits, it is important that the roots remain fixed in one place, else, it seems like the plant (individual) is growing, however, inside the earth, the states of affairs exhibit that the plant is trembling. And when strong winds blow, the plant is uprooted as it has let go of its place on earth.

One observes that mankind has left its place on earth too, just like the impure tree, there are impure matters, and impure thinking.                  Respected readers! What is their place on earth?

The true status of mankind is that of a Khalifa (Deputy). It is stated in the Holy Quran,

“And when thy Lord said unto the angels: Lo! I am about to place a viceroy in the earth, they said: Wilt thou place therein one who will do harm therein and will shed blood, while we, we hymn Thy praise and sanctify Thee? He said: Surely I know that which ye know not. And He taught Adam all the names.”

 (Quran, 2:30-31)

God Almighty made mankind His deputy on earth. They have been given the ability to bring innovation to creations, however, due to doubt, mankind has let go of their status and remain ignorant of their position as deputy. A crystal clear example of this is being ignorant of the teachings of the Holy Quran. While there is still doubt or impurity within the mind of mankind, they will remain unstable. Stability is reserved only for those who remain aware of their status as appointed deputies on earth.

May God protect you.
