Beautifully human

We dived into the Essence
And toured the human body
Found the course of the universe
All in the human body
The Torah and the Gospels
The Psalms and the Koran

All written words
Are found in the human body.
God is where your desire drives you :
All in the human body

Yunus Emré

I am the mirror of the world
Since I am a man
The ocean where truth takes shape
Since I am a man
I can write the Torah I can reel off Gospel
Unlocking the Mysteries of the Qur’an
Since I am a man.
Daimi

 

“La ilaha illa’l-‘ishq”
“There is no divinity except Love”

Formula often used in Turkish Sufism

“Tell me what you seek, I will tell you who you are:

If you are looking for the home of the soul, you are a soul;
If you are looking for a piece of bread, you’re bread.
If you can grasp the secret of this subtlety, you will understand:
Everything you’re looking for, this is what you are.
“.

Come, come, come … whoever you are, come !
Just as you’re unfaithful, idolatrous or pagan,
Our convent is not a place of despair;
Even if you are a hundred times back on your oath, come on ! 

Celaleddin Rûmi, dit Mevlânâ
(Celaleddin Rumi says Mevlânâ, Turkish poet and mystic, founder of the Brotherhood of the Whirling Dervishes, 13th century)

One day in the streets of Basra, was asked Rabia (*) why she wore a torch in one hand and a jug of water in the other, and she replied: 

“I want to cast fire in Paradise and to pour water in hell for these two veils disappear and we see clearly that love God by love and not by fear of hell or hope of heaven”.

She often prayed: “O God! If I worship You for fear of Hell, burn me in Hell,
and if I worship You in hope of Paradise, exclude me from Paradise.
But if I worship You for Your Own sake,
grudge me not Your everlasting Beauty.”

(*) Rabia Basri, called the “Holy of Basra” (or Bassora city now located in southern Iraq), died in 801. She introduced the image of selfless love in Sufism a very present picture in the Turkish spirituality. Love that door itself its purpose has become the central theme of Sufism. Almost all mystic poets in Islam, especially the Turkish poets expressed the idea that “love must be on the path of love so that he does not remember most of hell or heaven”.
Over the centuries, this mystical love strongly influenced Islam practiced by the Turks, who are distinguished in that other people where in relation to the divine, it is fear and fear dominate.
Rabia is one of the few female figures being of veneration in the Muslim world. Former slave freed by his master, Rabia’s love for God was absolute; there was no room for any other thought or some love whatsoever. Result : she never married. Her only desire was to get lost in the contemplation of “the One who created the flowers and spring.” “O Beloved of hearts …”, thus Rabia addressed God in his poems …

One thousand and one night

 A knock at Leila’s door , she asks, “Who’s there?”

“It’s me, Majnun” he said
“There is no place for you and me in my house,” she replied

Heartbroken he withdrew into the desert.

Then he comes back and strikes again
“Who’s there?” Leila request
“It’s you !” he answers

“the whole universe is reflected by every single point of it”

Letter’s science teaches that.

Concerning man, we can consider the “androgyn triangle” :

“indications were a triangle with alif at the top and a dâl and a mîm a its base, which are the three letters of Adâm name; inside an inversed triangle with a hâ and a wâw on its base and a alif on its top, which gives the name Hawâ (Eve). On the right side we can read Ahad (the One) and on the left side Awm (Ôm), on the base Dâma and Dâ’im (the Permanent). René Guénon


Adâm = 45 
45 = 9*5 = 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9. 
We can note the number 5 (which is the heart number as it is in the middle of the 1 to 9 suite and the 9 which symbolises the Totality. Also, 4 + 5 = 9 

Hawâ = 15 
Hawa = 15 = 3*5 = 1/3 of Adam

Hawâ + Adâm = 60 
Hawa = 15 = 3*5 = 1/4 of Hawa + Adam

and when they get united by the wâw (with suggestive shape) (*) :
Hawâ wa Adâm = 66 
nb : Allah = 66 (**)

(*) extinction of  ego in pleasure at the intimate union is a sign of the realization of the Divine (union = One = al Ahad), ineffable and evanescent as inherently unstable in the created world.

(**) Thus, the value of gematrical married couple, not man alone, sheds new light on the following verse :

Sourah 4 (Women) verse 3. “And if you fear that you will not deal justly with the orphan, then marry those that please you of women, two or three or four. But if you fear that you will not be just, then one or those your right hand possesses. That is more suitable that you may not incline [to injustice].”

Allah addresses the couple is already married (“marry […] two …”) and indicates that balance – symbolized by its size in the four-dimensional world – important for children (orphans : when missing one or both parents, totally or partially). This is a double perspective between quantity (digital) and quality (balance, harmony), according to the four directions of the world : North, South, East and West or the four elements earth, the sea, the Air and Fire, their properties Hot, Cold, Wet, Dry, etc. – Which is here designated, with back and forth between these two divalent aspects: quantity versus quality. This particular explains why the Prophet Muhammad, upon him peace and Hi, could remain married for almost 25 years with his first wife Khadijah bint Khuwaylid only perfect woman who assured the couple harmony in all its dimensions, to the death of Khadijah (nb: it was 15 years his senior), and is then joined up to 9 women at the same time (and not “only” 4) because it is a quality all that is sought, the number 9 symbolizing all that here in the universal (the number 7 have designated all in the created world).

Regarding polygamy, we see that – Muhamad being the symbol of perfection of Man on Earth – often mentioned that the amount of 4 women is mainly symbolic. Apart from its symbolic meaning the quantity of no particular interest, balance and harmony of the “couple” remain a key against, ie the aggregation to the reality of the Union resulting . The symbolism is associated with the Earth, round which represents the feminine principle, embraced by the male principle which transmits life to the land by water that comes from heaven and inseminated by a sperm-drop: the point of the bismillah.

Beautiful


This is the day when people will be like moths scattered, (Qur’an, S101-v4)

Why butterflies ?!!

Perhaps because a butterfly begins by being misshapen and sticky, crawling on the earth, then it becomes something light and beautiful, walking in the sky and interested only by beautiful things and nobles flowers …

Light is pronounced word

The Envoy of Allah – upon him the grace and peace ! – Said about his Lord – may He be exalted ! -:
“The light is His Sail”;
he also said :
“Allah has seventy – or seventy thousant – veils of light and darkness, alternating”;

When he’s been asked – on him Grace and Peace! -:

“Did you ever see your Lord ?!”

… he replied : “Light ! How is that I could see Him ?”

NB : This is a common misnomer to say that we “see” light. Indeed, this would require having an “other” light to shine the first one !
Light is actually “that mean by which we see the matter, thanks to its interaction through it”. Therefore it is never possible to see the light itself. No scientist to date is able to claim to have seen a speck of light, much less present you a picture… Also, we do not “see” God. It is through Him that the world is perceived.

At the same time, he said that “Patience”, which corresponds to fasting and pilgrimage was a “flash of light”. Indeed it clears for you what was confused, as the brightness of the light allows you to see things. Light has no other effect than to hunt the dark while its brightness causes the discovery and intuition.

He said: “Two joys belong to fasting: one when he breaks his fast …”, this applies only joy his animal spirit, “… the other when he meets his Lord”: this joy there relates his “talking soul” (nafs nâtiqa) and its “core lordly” (latifa rabbâniyya) because fasting leads to the meeting of Allah, that is to say, contemplation (mushâhada).
