Tawhid Tawhid ehne kahiye je chhe Khuda na muka gar chhe khuda nathi pun janje khuda chhe this than is OUR DEEN The Essence – the Truth – the Haqiqat
Our DEEN comprises of shariat of all notaqa beginning from Nabi Adam (SA) and finding ultimate zenith in the shariat of khatamun Nabi Mohammad (SA) apne sagla notaqa ne sachaviye chhe Our belief is that the shariat of Adam (SA) was complete in itself, at that period of time, likewise the shariat of all the Nabi following him was complete in itself. Example : The development of the child in the mothers womb. 1 st month -what ever is required for the nourishment and the development of the child is very much there - complete in all respect - in the 1 st month. Likewise, the 2 nd month is inclusive of the growth and nourishment of the 1 st month and the requirement of the 2 nd month. In a sense complete in itself. Like wise all the following months till the 6 th month. Our DEEN is complete in all aspects - now nothing more is to be added to the all inclusive shariat of Rasul Allah (SA)
The Growth of DEEN - the maad (return to the place of GRACE - Alam ul Ibda (the Pelorama) from which we had fallen THE DEEN IS COMPLETE WITH RASULALAH (SA) till the date of Qayamat everything has been crystallized NOW COMES OUR INDVIDUAL PURSUIT TO RETURN AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE TO OUR ORIGINAL ABODE ALAM UL IBDA what we need now for our return journey is THE VALAYAT OF MOULANA ALI (SA) THE IMAMS (SA) and DOAT UL MUTLAQEEN
Now true VALAYAT of DAI UZ ZAMAN is sufficient enough for a mumin to qualify his entry into JANNAH - no doubt what so ever in this. VALAYAT is the bedrock. Muqaddas Moula Taher Saifudin saheb (RA) has said : (not the exact words) mumin na dil ma jo hamari faqt mohabbat hase, gar chey ehna aamal ghanaj kum athva kusurvar hase, thena bavajud, mumin, hamari ikhlas thi mohabbat na sabab JANNAT ma dakhil thai gayo. However, the Ahadees of Rasul Allah (SA) talabatul Ilm farizato mumin wa muslemah makes it imperative on us all to seek true knowledge. There are different stations of JANNAH and in order to achieve those exalted stations, to experience the supreme bliss and joy, to aspire for the nearness of Awliyah Kiram, to be in the sacrosanct and holy of the holies place, the inner circle of JANNAH – we have to actively pursue the Ilm of TAWHID TRUE Ilm of Tawhid is attained by being fully focused and it is attained by acquiring from house of Ilm e Ala Mohammad (SA)
Now this presentation, is for all those who want to undertake this enriching journey of understanding and enlightment. SO LET US START WITH HAMD OF ALLAH Now seeing all the strife and pain in this world, the futility of all this A question comes up in many a mind A simple and straight forward one many are afraid to ask, but others do ask WHY DID ALLAH HAVE TO CREATE THIS WORLD OF STRIFE AND SEEMING FUTILITY – WHY OH WHY ? A GOOD QUESTION INDEED VERY DIFFICULT TO ANSWER SIMPLY PUT - I KNOW NOT – ALLAH KNOWS BEST HOWEVER, OUR DEEN HAS ANSWERS WITH MY VERY LIMITED KNOWLEDGE I WILL TRY TO ANSWER AND HOPE IT WILL HELP IN YOUR UNDERSTANDING
PLOTINUS - the founder of Neo-Platonism, whose philosophy had a great influence on shihi Islamism gives one reason – ALLAH knows best, but here we are trying to understand to the best of our ability at least we are making a honest attempt One of the reason is bonum diffusm sui which means GOOD DIFFUSES ITSELF What it means is that ALLAH WHO IS EMBODIMENT OF GOOD COULD NOT CONTAIN HIMSELF TO HIMSELF IT WAS IN NO WAY LIMITING - HE COULDHAVE CONTAINED BUT HE WILLED FOR THE OUTFLOW THE EMANATION AS PER THE THEORY OF EMANATION BY PLOTINUS IN HIS ENNEADS THIS UNIVERSAL TRUTH CAN BE EASILY FOUND IN OUR DAILY LIVES GOOD WILL ALWAYS DIFFUSE THERE WILL ALWAYS BE AN OUTFLOWING IT WILL THOUCH AND REFRESH AND ENRICH MANY A LIVES THE LIVING PRESENCE OF AQA MOULA (TUS) THE RADIANCE THAT EMANATES IN HIS HAZARAT IS ONE GOOD EXAMPLE
When Allah - glory be to Him! - willed that the source of His most Beautiful Names - which are beyond enumeration - be seen (or you can equally say that He willed His source to be seen), He willed that they be seen in a microcosmic being which contained the entire matter, (1) endowed with existence, and through which His secret was manifested to Him. For how a thing sees itself through itself is not the same as how it sees itself in something else which acts as a mirror for it. S o here we have another understanding that ALLAH WILLED HIS SOURCE TO BE SEEN TO BE MANIFESTED SO HE CREATED A SHAFFAF SPACE A MIRROR IN OUR DAILY PARLANCE SO THAT HE CAN SEE HIS TAJJALLI Now this is what Al – Arabi has to say in his Book : Fusus al –Hikam
To any one who really wants to understand TAWHID I would highly recommend the reading of NASIHAT of Sayedi Sadik Ali Saheb. In very easy to understand lyrical language he makes us understand the TAWHID of Allah – its true meaning as stated in the start of my presentation Knowledge is not hidden - he says aakas hidayat na varse chhe… we are to blame if we keep our container upside down. here I am not talking of Haqiqat sabaks the entire presentation is based on published material accessible on the Net, published Books and most important in the Noorani bayan mubarak of Aqa Moula (TUS) in numerous vaaz mubarak.
TAWHID What is Tawhid ? Let us delve a little deeper in our understanding of Tawhid Words are mere signposts, but they help us in our understanding. TAWHID comes from the Arabic word Wahid or Ahad It has 3 parts ALLAH IS THE CREATOR ALLAH IS THE SUSTAINER ALLAH IS THE PRESERVER HE IS THE RABB Alhamdolilah Rabbil Alamin (Rabb of the worlds) HE is everywhere by HIS Knowledge – by HIS Mercy- HE looks after everything But HE is Not part of the worlds (Alams) HE IS DISTINCT FROM IT He is the CREATOR but is not a part of HIS Creation Alam e Ibda – Alam e Roohani and Jismul Mutlaq – the total body jehna Aashir ne hawala chhe
TAWHID implies the unity, coherence and harmony, between all the parts of the Universe. Everything is related to the same Origin and Source, every constituent of the world is the part of the same whole, and all parts constitute one Unity. There is a purpose and meaning to the entire Universe, a meaning and purpose that can be seen in some of the parts. All are the creation of one and the same ALLAH and all are uniform in their fundamental essence. All reality issues from the ONE - Who is the sole Absolute Reality, which is also Absolute Beauty Plato Beauty is in the splendor of Truth In the following slides we will be a witness to this truth of Plato Everything in the Cosmos is the result of the this reflection or thophany (tajalli) The first emanation - the tajalli in Aqal Awwal We have being trying to understand TAWHID with the help of words Now in the following slides we will understand Tawhid with splendid images Of the Universe
When you lose touch with inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself. When you lose touch with yourself, you lose yourself in the world. Your innermost sense of self, of who you are, is inseparable from stillness. This is the I Am that is deeper than name and form. Stillness is your essential nature. What is stillness? The inner space or awareness in which the words on this page are being perceived and become thoughts. Without that awareness, there would be no perception, no thoughts, no world. You are that awareness, disguised as a person. From the Book: The Stillness Speaks - Eckhart Tolle Note : It is suggested to play the pptx: SPACE (1) Before we start to see some breathtaking pictures of the Cosmos taken by the HUBBLE let us become still - let us BE IN THE NOW – THE PRESENT – let us shut off all the mind clatter, so that our subconscious reveals its self As you become still and focused IN THE NOW and watch the Space Slide Show -You will surely grasp the The Truth which is also beauty as said by Plato Of TAWHiD just listen to this sound clip - it will take you in the NOW
So you have just been a witness to the beauty and vastness of the COSMOS. But the truth is that modern science speaks of the vastness in a quantitative manner -It deals with only one level of cosmic existence, no matter how many zeros it adds to distances in galactic and interstellar space – but the whole of the material universe, no matter how extended its physical dimensions might be…………… Is like a speck of dust before the grandeur of the World of Spirit and our DEEN is primarily concerned with the Alam more grand more luminous and Everlasting Now let us turn our attention to that Alam e roohani With the help of the powerful HUBBLE Telescope, it was possible to witness the beauty and vastness of the COSMOS Now in order to understand the Truths contained in our DEEN Let us take up the Nashihat of Syedi Sadik Ali Saheb The spiritual outflow of verses will indeed present before you a visual panorama of the haqiqat that happened in the archangelic pleroma Alam ul Ibda
So in how simple, lucid verses Sayedi Sadik Ali Saheb with the help of words visualizes the Haqiqat Truths. If one is to re read the verses of this Nashihat several times, he will definitely understand the truths. We did not listen to Moulana Ashir in the roohani Alam we were obstinate, unrelenting But all the same Moulana Ashir loved us, he was so very understanding so appropriately Sayedi Sadik Ali Saheb says: laachar thai nakha aa duniya na ghara ma He becomes the demiurge aa duniya na Ashir ne hawala chhe Hayula (The Total Body – Jismul Mutlaq) ma thi Moula Ashir tadbeer e akhir kari sagla jano ne roohani ni Alam taraf walse Here let me again recall the nasihat of Syedi Sadik ali Saheb, at the very begging of the presentation tawhid ehne kahye je chhe khuda na muka gar chhe khuda nathi, pan janje khuda chhe so true Tawhid in our age is the faith and love For our beloved Aqa Moula (TUS) Here let me share my thoughts expressed in the voice clip Aalam ul Ibda (duration 14 min)
If one has heard the voice clip with due attention, the bayan mubarak of Aqa Moula (TUS) is very easy to understand, it is the essence of truth, it is all pervasive, and exudes the fragrance of an enlightened soul. Here I would like to draw the attention to the depth and all encompassing beauty of OUR DEEN In the Book Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle – who is regarded as one of the most influential Spiritual Teacher of Modern Age, a question is put forward to him Does God need time for personal growth ? The immediate answer given by Eckhart is YES but he seems to be all confused to explain why GOD should need time and space for growth. It appears to be blasphemy. It means GOD is not perfect !! In the next 2 pages of the book (pages 82 & 83) he tries to explain, but not convincingly. The reason is that GOD in all other monolithic religion except Islam, has a restricted meaning. Now friends, GOD is not MUBDE HAQ SUBHANAHU - THE ONE who is beyond our understanding and comprehension. GOD if understood as the 3 rd Archangel – Adam e Ruhani – Moulana Ashir – the Spiritual Adam – the demiurge of our world YES in a sense HE needs time for personal growth. HE has to ascend to the position in Alam ul Ibda. HE has to ascend to his original position.
Words are a tool in the understanding of Truths. But in Islam the words themselves are full of deep meaning. As the subject is TAWHID let me show you the depth of the word ALLAH in Arabic with reference to the commonly used word GOD. Bring your complete awareness and just look at the word for a few seconds. Just look.
Here you have it The essence of ALLAH - wahdahu la sharika laka remains even if individual Arabic alphabets are removed Lillah Illah and hu All meaning ALLAH
Now let us do a similar exercise with the words representing the SUPREME BEING JEHOVA in Judaism AHURA MAZDA in Zoroastrianism GOD in Christianity BHAGWAN in Hinduism BEING in modern Spiritual thinking Just try removing the alphabets does the essence remains the same obviously it does not this than my friends is The Beauty – Depth - Truth of our DEEN
Our Moula (TUS) is mufat-tarazul –taaat This than is the true TAWHID He says like all the Doat Mutlaqeens have said : I am doing the tadbeer Just keep me in your heart and gaze I will surely bring you to me I will surely bring you to me. He is the only one who will take us back to our vatan e kadeem this than is TAWHID in its all encompassing sense. Double click to play
