Why did God create mankind, is that your
First, we are saying, “In the name of God,
Most Gracious, Most Merciful.”
The question you are asking, you must ask God
because He is the Creator. If you cannot reach Him, you must ask
someone who has reached Him. Only those reaching their Lord may
provide you with a truthful answer. Fabricated answers coming from
a person’s inner self or unruly ego are not acceptable answers.
These answers are only products of their own thinking emerging from
their mind’s fanciful ideas. We are not interested in these kinds
of answers. Everyone may say something according to his or her own
mentality and opinions but we should never accept this line of
reasoning. We are seeking something else. There are so many
opinions to choose from, all amounting to nothing more than mere
conjecture. We are asking for something way beyond what people
presume to be true through their own thinking. You must first try
to ascertain what the Creator is saying, but if you cannot reach the
Creator yourself, you must necessarily ask those enlightened people
who have successfully reached their Lord’s divine presence. They
are capable of asking Him — they may take answer.
We understand what you are doing now because
now I am in connection with heavenly headquarters. This is not my
own thinking or thought process answering you. No. If you have
understood the answer to the first question, then you may
understand the answer to this question, but I understand now that
you are not asking for yourself but for other people who do not
understand. We are saying, the doors, gates or entrance for the
seven heavens is going to be open for those who have reached their
Lord, not for others. Ok?
(Prior to this interview, we had
never discussed the purpose or intention for asking these questions.)
I am not saying you do not understand, but
you are asking this third question also for the benefit of others,
who are accustomed to use their own fanciful thinking and
conventional thought processes. You will find the answer for this
question in the answers already given to the first two questions.
People who are asking to reach heavenly positions must look towards
those people who have reached to heaven. They know the ways and
they have keys for opening.
As evidenced by our own creation, God must
Once upon a time, a traveler was walking
through the desert. After a while, he reached a nice shaded place
to take a rest. While sitting under a tree, he noticed several
piles of fresh camel droppings and he said to himself, “Oh, a
caravan must have recently passed through here.”
Now consider if someone might ask him,
“How did you know this?”
Of course, the traveler’s only response could
“Because I am looking and seeing for myself —
you see there are clear signs from the camels that were left
If a person can understand from the piles of
camel droppings that camels exist, how simple-minded a person must
be if unable to understand that beyond this vast creation, with all
of its countless evidences, there is something creating it? When
dealing with such ignorant people, do not tire yourself, leave them
— leave them to their own foolish thinking and ridiculous ideas. In
the realm of beneficial understanding, these people are on the level
of retarded people — you know that condition that some children are
born with, Down’s Syndrome, causing them to be mentally impaired.
People claiming such foolish things are similar to these people when
it comes to real understanding. They lack the capacity to
understand. Do not make yourself become tired with such people.
No, leave them. We are only addressing those people who have the
capacity to understand. We are not speaking to empty headed
people. Their heads are like footballs; inside is only air.
To find our way, and enable us to reach to
heaven. It is that simple.
As the holy books say, you may prepare. Step
by step you may prepare yourself. As with a small child, its father
or mother takes the child’s hand and teaches them one step at a
time. In the same way, prophets teach how we may reach to the
heavens. Then if you have learned the first step well, you may put
your foot forward, take a second step, third step and so on without
any hindrance for you to reach up higher and higher. Your body will
soon become a much stronger and more capable spiritual being. When
your spiritual being has taken enough power, it can literally carry
your heavy body off the ground, like a jet plane, getting enough
power and taking its heavy body up to space. Yes! Anyone who has
never witnessed a jet plane flying might say,
“Impossible! This is a large hunk of metal
with five hundred or more people inside; and you are claiming this
plane is going to lift off and fly like a bird?”
They would accuse you of being a complete
“How can metal float? How can it fly?”
The plane is sitting on the runway, quietly
sitting and hearing what the skeptics are saying. It is listening
and smiling; and if it could speak, it would be telling everyone to
get in and experience for themselves how it gets up, and inviting
people to get in or watch from outside. Then the captain enters,
presses one button and slowly, slowly the turbines turn and the
skeptics are still saying,
“What is going to happen?”
“Perhaps this giant hunk of metal can move
like a car, but still we are never going to believe that it will
leave the ground.” After taxi-ing, it finally moves onto the
runway, the captain applies full power, and vrrrrrrrrr, off
they go. The skeptics all say,
“Oh yes, now we believe it can fly.”
Yes. For everyone there are limits for
understanding according to their individual capabilities and
knowledge. One person’s limit is not the same as another’s. Our
limits of understanding and knowledge all vary. You must not force
a person to believe this or that — leave them with their own
Once upon a time, Prophet Moses went to Mt.
Sinai. Along his way, he met a person that was the best saddle
maker in the land. Knowing that Moses was going to meet his Lord,
he politely requested that Moses convey his highest greetings and
praises to God. He said,
“Never am I going to be able to reach God in
the way that you do, so please tell Him for me that, if I were to
meet Him, I would happily offer to make Him the very best saddle for
Moses became very angry and replied,
“Don’t speak of such things. God is not a
man riding on a horse. Don’t say anything like this.”
Moses proceeded to Mt. Sinai for his blessed
meeting with his Lord. After he had greeted Him, God said,
“O Moses, why are you so angry with my
servant? I accept him. He is offering Me his highest praises and
the most precious thing that he could offer — he is My servant and
he graciously would like to make Me the best saddle he can,
***as if he thinks I am a god riding on a horse. I accept
this. Why then are you so angry with him? Leave him.”
Subhan Allah (Glory be to God)
Almighty. Look at the tolerance God shows for His servants.
Let me relay to you another short story. At
the time of the last Prophet, our Master Muhammad, may God’s peace
and blessing be upon him, a person made an oath, which he then
broke. As a reprisal for having broken his oath, he was obliged to
set free one captive. Conditional on him was that this captive be a
maiden and a believer in God. Thus, the Prophet asked her,
“Do you believe in God?”
“Yes I believe,” responded the maiden.
When asked where God is, she pointed up. The
Prophet witnessing this concluded that she was a believer in God.
The companions of the Prophet objected saying,
“No, O Messenger of God, she is pointing up
as if indicating that God is occupying a space. How can she be
deemed a believer if saying God takes up space?”
The Prophet replied, “What she means to
indicate is the highness of God and not that God is a being with
dimensions. The understanding levels of people vary and the
knowledge that we possess through our different levels of
understanding are going to be in different limits.”
Allah Almighty is showing us through many
examples that we need to realize there is always someone who is
above us in knowledge and understanding. We must not place limits
on our thinking and confine our understanding to the level we have
obtained. Leave open the possibility that someone else possesses a
higher understanding about matters than we do. There is always
someone higher than we are. If not understanding something, do not
discount what others may be saying or doing on a different level.
Moreover, deal with everyone on his or her own levels of
understanding. Allah balances our understanding according to our
knowledge and everyone understands and knows on his or her own
level. Our levels are never the same.
In our present times, people have reached the
top point of being proud. They place no importance on heavenly
knowledge. They claim that their earthly knowledge is enough for
them. They prefer to guide themselves, while not accepting a guide
from heavens. Therefore, God Almighty has chosen to leave them with
their own thought processes and their limited understanding. If
they humble themselves and sincerely ask about heavenly knowledge,
the Lord of heavens will open for them another type of
understanding. A much stronger kind of understanding that addresses
both their physical and their spiritual being — heavenly knowledge.
Unfortunately, people are not able to accept
this type of knowledge today. In universities around the world,
discussions about God are effectively prohibited. The name of God,
the name of our Creator, is rarely mentioned in textbooks.
Universities are only teaching and promoting positive knowledge —
mostly, the type of knowledge that can be observed. They may take
an ant, put it under a microscope and then record that this ant has
six legs. We believe only what we see. If you move outside of
these limitations, they are saying no. As we are able to record, we
accept. Anything more, they disregard. Everything is constrained
within the limits of positive knowledge today and it is the biggest
mistake for men living in the second millennium.
No one is coming to ask about old knowledge
that prophets delivered to us. The main points of all knowledge
reached derive from these sources. Mankind never possessed any
knowledge before heavenly books and knowledge were revealed. No.
Heavenly books give the original points of knowledge and may be used
for understanding. When they stand up on their own two feet, people
proudly say they are not in need of these books. They are people
with no minds, who have lost all good sense. I say to all of them
that they are square-headed people. I say to all of those
professors, to all people who are teaching positive knowledge in
universities everywhere, they are only square-headed people. Some
squares may be one centimeter square, some two, some five, some ten,
some one meter square, one kilometer square, it does not matter.
The entire bunch of them is within the limits of square heads. They
must break that limited square head if they ever hope to reach
unlimited knowledge. Nevertheless, they are happy to be professors
of one-centimeter square knowledge. One drop, they say, is more
than enough for us, through a short life.
Allow? God never allows evil things to
happen. God Almighty provides humanity with a very special
something that He has never bestowed upon any other creatures. He
did not give it to heavenly creatures nor did He give it to the
countless number of other creatures here on earth. Allah Almighty
has only granted man heavenly positions and an inherent capacity for
both intellect and willpower, reserved only for humanity. The
angels possess a mind, but they have no willpower. Every creature
on earth, while blessed with an ability, has no willpower. This
special gift, granted only to humanity, is an endless honor.
Now what about those honored persons gifted
with an intellectual capacity and willpower, who have now
consciously chosen to do bad things, evil things, things that break
the divine law, not just common laws or man’s own laws? Should not
any person of sound mind, who is clearly abusing his rights and
responsibilities by breaking laws designed to protect all people, be
accused, tried in a just court of law, and punished for the wrongful
actions he has committed? Therefore, an honored human blessed with
intellect and willpower that chooses to throw away his
responsibilities and rather opt to spread corruption and oppression,
should he not be held accountable? Should not God Almighty punish
“I gave you the means to differentiate
between right and wrong, good and evil, why are you not using this
capacity granted to you?” will be the likely question God may ask.
“I said to you that this is a dangerous
poison, so why then are you using it? What did your mind say? This
is poison! What did your willpower say to you? Do not drink it!
So why are you drinking?”
Therefore, punishment comes according to our
level of responsibility and properly performed responsibilities
give us a big honor, big honor and high honor. This is the reason.
No. Allah never leaves people to do evil or to follow devils.
However, if you are using your mind and willpower in a bad way, you
should be punished by divine court. Yes.
You must ask someone who knows.
They must ask . . .
There is a verse in holy books, particularly
in the Holy Qur’an: Fas’al bihi
khabiran. “So ask the one who knows about it.” Qur’an 25:59.
If you are planning a journey to England,
what is the best way to proceed? Of course, you must ask someone,
who has made the journey to England and knows the way. Someone else
might want to go on pilgrimage to one of the holy cities of Mecca or
Medina. They must first ask themselves,
“What is the best way to reach Mecca or
You must ask the person who really knows. If
you do not know, Allah tells us to ask those that truly know. If an
answer comes from someone who reads maps and books and has never
actually traveled to the place you are going to, he will be only
using his intellectual capacity, not real experience and real
knowledge. All of these people offer their opinion, an idea, and an
answer to your question — so many answers come from them.
However, if someone gives you an answer
beyond his own mind production or intellectual reasoning — an answer
coming from true spiritual understanding born of real experience —
you may trust this answer. You must seek and find answers from
those people who have attained spiritual power — their souls are
always in contact with heavens. Someone qualified as a real
spiritual guide and a real teacher. You must ask one of them. How
can you ask about diamonds from a grocer, someone who understands
only about fruit and vegetables and nothing about diamonds? You
want to ask for information about diamonds, so you say,
“Please give me some diamonds.”
He can only say,
“No. I am selling potatoes, tomatoes,
melons, and all kinds of fruit. I do not sell or understand
anything about diamonds and other jewels. I am not an expert in
precious stones. You must ask this question from a jeweler; they
know what you are asking for and what you want. Let us send you to
that qualified one.”
Likewise, if a person knows nothing about
spirituality, how can he say anything about heavens? This is not
his area. Scientists and university professors alike are all
attempting to comment today on matters of spirituality and heavenly
knowledge. This is one of the biggest problems today. These topics
are not within their scope of understanding; it is not their field
of expertise! Their field is narrow and includes only what they are
able to see in front of their eyes. What they are able to see and
to perform experiments on is all that they know. These are their
narrow limits of understanding. They may be anxious to offer an
answer, but it is not for them to answer questions about matters
concerning spiritual events, spirituality, heavens, and heavenly
books. They have nothing they can offer on the subject, just mere
conjecture. In fact, it is forbidden to speak on the subject if one
does not truly know. Nonetheless, they are everywhere asking to say
something about what they presume to be true, what they think they
know. They are foolish people. They do not understand, and they
are saying something about what they do not know anything about.
No, it is not for us.
Their limits are contained within the four
walls of positive knowledge. Two times two equals four. Two plus
two equals four. Now I am asking, why does three multiplied by
three equal nine? Why does two times three equal six and is not
going to be equivalent to nine? (Three cubed or two multiplied by
three) Do you understand? Ah yes, two multiplied by two equals
four. Two plus two is also four. Then, three multiplied by three
equals nine. Conversely, three plus three equals six. Why is that
the way it is? Now changing these rules — One multiplied by one is
one. One plus one is two. Two multiplied by two is four. Two plus
two is four. Another way and then continuing up with different
rules and ideas; I am asking you why? You can perhaps understand
However, beyond this, who is putting these
rules in place? You do not know where these rules come from. A
rule must be set in its place by something. We are not making up
these rules; we are only opening up on them. We are only
discovering some of these rules in nature, we are not formulating
these rules; we are only opening up on them and showing people this
is a rule that something or someone has placed into existence, and
nature must be obedient to that rule. Do you understand?
Shukran, Thank you. The original
question – I think Sheikh Nazim answered very well by warning us to
be careful from whom we ask these kinds of questions, but I am just
concerned that maybe the question was not answered directly.
What was the question?
What happens when we die?
Ah, ha, ha, yes, it is not for those
professors; the answer belongs to the spiritual people. Those that
have a spiritual power, they know it, because they know beyond our
physical knowledge. They may see beyond our physical capacity,
which sees only with our eyes; they may hear what our physical
hearing does not reach. They may know what our physical knowledge
does not reach because mind production is limited; spiritual powers
or heavenly powers that belong to our spiritual being are
unlimited. You may move in unlimited areas.
STUDENT OF SHEIKH NAZIM’S:
When we are dying, can you say anything about
Dying means . . . First, we should
understand that we are living only by the command of our Creator.
Our Creator says that when our physical being is completed through
the wombs of our mothers, His command comes: “Be alive.” Only then
are we beginning to move inside. A command makes the fetus become
alive and that command or order is not something you can examine or
analyze with your physical limitations. No. It is a holy command:
“Be,” then it must be.
So now, you are asking what will happen after
death. Yes? It is only as we have been informed through heavenly
knowledge. That is our answer. No one can give a commentary on it
from the mind production people. It is not possible. If Dr.
So-and-So is asking to do some commentary on this subject matter, it
is like painting or drawing a picture about the beginning of the
life on this earth. What kind of animals and other life forms have
inhabited the earth? They would paint many different kinds of
pictures and all of them would be from their imagination. It is not
authorized or true knowledge; it is simply from their colorful
imaginations. Even if with firm conviction they are claiming this
and that, it is nothing more than colorful imagination — a theory.
Theory means it is not an established knowledge. It is only pushing
around ideas, moving their imagination from one place to another
place. One of their theories comes to them today, they throw it
away tomorrow and then revive it again the next day. Therefore, it
is not for them to express their imaginative, self-aggrandizing
ideas and opinions on this subject or that. No. It is not their
field. Their field is limited to the realm of positive knowledge.
That is what we spoke about just now. On the
one side, we have mind production, which is the area of scientific
knowledge. On the other side, we have a heavenly order, which is
religion. Religious knowledge must be the type of knowledge that is
able to reach everywhere — comprehensive knowledge. Heavenly
knowledge is comprehensive. However, scientific knowledge, even
though many people accept it as a kind of comprehensive knowledge
about mankind, the earth, etc., it is only one little drop in an
endless ocean of knowledge.
Therefore, heavenly knowledge is like an
endless ocean. What scientific, positive knowledge people are
attempting to learn today, they may say they have learned, but
tomorrow they come with new ideas and thinking, and render it
useless. Their mind is just occupied with useless thinking. Their
minds are like a used automobile, wearing out, because they are just
using their minds for something useless and imaginative. When a
useful knowledge presents itself to them, they are so occupied with
nonsensical thinking, under the false title of practical knowledge,
that they do not have the time or energy to see it. Their minds are
so occupied with the pursuit of useless knowledge, like a worn-out,
used car. Therefore, scientific knowledge is tiny and useless when
compared to endless heavenly knowledge.
Take, for example, a scientist who is trying
to speak on a topic of study or research from the available
knowledge in his mind. He may speak for perhaps one hour, two
hours, three hours, maybe four hours. He must necessarily stop
because his knowledge is within limitations. Like this jug of water
next to me, what is contained in it you may use, but when it is
finished, there is nothing more that can be taken from it. However,
if it is a tap connected to a main spring and it is always open, you
may sit here from morning until evening and drink. It is the same
with heavenly knowledge; you can speak, not repeating the same ideas
even once, without any notes or reference material. No. Speaking
about heavenly subject matters is so easy for me, because I am only
a pipe, with the knowledge running through my heart, through my
mouth endlessly. It is knowledge from heaven. I don’t know of any
professor or scientist, if they are going to speak or address an
audience, that can do so without preparing himself days, weeks, or
even months in advance. Perhaps for one lecture, they might prepare
themselves for a year or more. What they are trying to formulate in
one year, we may speak on it in the same day. That is the
difference between scientists and spiritually authorized people.
Let us take another example. Scientists’
minds are like tape recorders, which are operating on limited
battery power. Once the battery has been drained, it is finished —
no more power. However, if the tape recorder, with an endless tape,
is directly connected to a central power station, it will never
stop. Spiritual people have an endless source of power — tireless.
The same questions you are asking me, if they are going to be asked
of someone else, they are going to request time to research and
prepare their answers to your questions. Effectively pulling
information from one elephant dung pile and another elephant pile
and reaching what product?
Some people, observing what bees do, say,
“Hmmm, we see bees coming and landing on one flower and then getting
up and coming to another and still another, then returning to their
hive. One observer says,
“I must try this, too. Where these bees are
going and taking I must also go and take.”
Then he goes and takes a small bit from one
flower after another and fills his test tube. After collecting
pollen, “just like the bees, I shall sit awhile and see what will
happen to my lovely honey.” So, he sits for one entire day and
“Oh, perhaps I must be patient for three
Three days pass and he is still observing.
“Oh, perhaps I must wait one week to get my
And then, maybe he says, “Obviously, the
results will not come so quickly. We will wait one month.”
After one month passes it is time to try the
honey. Then he takes a spoon and tastes a bit . . .
“What is this awful stuff?”
Other people mock him and say,
“What happened to your lovely honey? Eat
“It is so bad. I was simply trying to take
from where the bees go around and take, and then this awful tasting
stuff results. I fear that if I eat any more, I may die so I shall
throw it away.”
Ah, you see, you are not a bee. Bees know
how to take honey from flowers; people do not. It is not something
people can master. Therefore, not everyone can reach and take
something from heavens. No. You may take from earth, but from
heavens, you are limited. Everyone may learn some things but not
everyone is able to learn from heavens. Heaven gives you honey and
others just give you nothing but poison. Therefore, beware of
cheats; beware of those who wish to cheat you. Do not trust those
people with their fanciful words and ideas, speaking in such
complexities with their high English, German and French languages.
Do not believe that it is going to provide you with any real honey.
People must eventually die. If they do not
become ill and die today, then maybe they will tomorrow. If they do
not die this month, then perhaps they will next month. Their health
is declining and death is coming to them. Sickness and the
possibility of dying acts as a wake-up call for people. It provides
people with a shock to help them return to their real nature. When
the heart, our spiritual energy center, drains and becomes lazy
because of our wrong way of living, sickness shocks us back into
compliance with a holistic way of living, which is the only road to
real health and true happiness. Our spiritual energy renews itself
for a time. Every sickness is associated with our spiritual energy
moving towards the zero level. The Lord of Heavens sends sickness
on people, and quickly with such a sickness, a fear of dying causes
us to consider things we otherwise try to ignore.
“What happens to us when we die?” we say.
“Perhaps life is going to end for me now.”
With the process of death, our spiritual
energy increases. If death is imminent, our spirituality reaches a
point preparing us for death, exiting this temporal dimension.
Sometimes illness comes to wake people up, sometimes to take people
away to a cemetery. These are the two primary reasons.
People are either going to be under the
command of their egos or their souls. When people are under the
command of their soul, they will never harm anyone because their
soul represents a divine angelic nature. Angels never harm anything
However, if a person is under the command of
his lower self, the ego, he will be very dangerous to others. An
uncontrolled ego is much worse than wild, violent animals.
Therefore, if people permit themselves to be under the command of
their unruly egos, they are going to be very dangerous and prone to
harming people. If they approach you from the front, they will
attempt to bite you. If you are approaching them from behind, their
hind legs kick you like a wild donkey. When you see a person biting
or kicking someone, no doubt you may conclude this is a tyrant, a
person lower than a violent animal. That is the reason for man’s
inhumanity towards his fellow man.
Everything in creation has been created for
the benefit of mankind. Animals, plants and insects have all been
created to be under the command of mankind, to help them and to
provide for their specialized benefits. That is the wisdom for
Imagine the world without any creatures.
Such a silent existence — like a desert. Animals provide benefit to
people as well as giving them a shining aura around themselves. It
is natural for people to want to surround themselves with animals
and nature. It gives them comfort and ease.
God Almighty created some with an obvious
benefit, while some of them have less obvious wisdoms as to why God
placed them on earth. Nonetheless, there is a specific wisdom
behind each. You may find the wisdom behind all of creation
contained in revealed heavenly books and knowledge. It is not
possible to find anything in creation that does not have a
corresponding wisdom behind it.
A short tale should help illustrate this
Once upon a time, a person, after seeing
several cockroaches scurrying away from a bathroom, was wondering to
“What purpose does this insect have? Why did
the Creator, create this disgusting, ugly, dirty thing?” he asked.
The Creator, who observes all things
mentioned in the hearts and minds of people, decided to leave that
person for a short while. After some time had passed and the
question of why God created cockroaches was almost forgotten, God
caused that person to incur an injury on his leg that resulted in a
persistent, open sore — a sore so persistent that, no matter what
kind of modern medical treatment he administered, there was no
effect on the sore whatsoever. So many kinds of treatment
attempted, but the sore did not heal.
After a while, the man came across a wise man
that had been given heavenly knowledge and was a practitioner of
traditional, natural medicine, and not a university trained person
holding only a medical degree.
The natural medicine doctor asked the man,
“Do you know what the medicine is for this
sore on your leg?”
The man said,
“No, I do not.”
The natural medicine doctor replied,
“You must take a cockroach, kill it, and then
place it in an open flame until it becomes dry and crispy. Then you
must grind it into ashes and put those cockroach ashes on your open
sore. The sore will quickly begin to heal.”
The man did as the natural medicine doctor
instructed, and in a very short while, the sore was showing obvious
signs of closing and healing.
Here is another example of how all of God’s
creation has a purpose and wisdom behind it. There is a black
insect, similar to the cockroach, but black in color and not flying
but crawling on the ground — a black beetle. A person was asking
“Why was this black bug created?”
Soon after, the person developed a kind of
illness causing him to become yellow. Both the eyes and body were
turning yellow — doctors were administering one medicine and
treatment after another, but with no benefit.
One day, a natural medicine doctor came to
visit the town where this sick person lived. Quickly the person
went to him and asked,
“Is there a medicine to cure my condition?
Do you have anything that will help me?”
The doctor nodded.
Anxiously the person asked,
“Well, what is it?”
The natural medicine doctor then said,
“Do you have beetles in your village, black
ones? You must kill some and make it into a paste. Take one small
spoon in the morning and one small spoon in the evening. You are
eating and after a while . . .”
The person quickly interjected and said,
“I must try this.”
He quickly went to retrieve the beetles and
made the paste. The person complained about the taste of the paste,
but the natural medicine doctor insisted that there was no other
cure for this illness, so the person continued to take the
medicine. He went and caught many beetles, made the paste and ate
it every morning and evening. After three days, there was a marked
improvement in the person’s condition. They were so happy that
finally they had found a cure for his terrible illness.
“I ask for forgiveness, O my Lord,” said the
“Never again will I ever question why you,
Almighty, have created something. Just now, I am beginning to
understand and am learning good manners. Forgive me, my Lord. I am
never going to question the wisdom of Your creation again.”
So, we must understand that everything that
is created has some special purpose.
As people progress in understanding, they ask
and need to know more. The more they ask, the more He gives. What
we are able to perceive within the limitations of our minds may help
us to have a greater perspective for today, but it is not
satisfactory for what we need for tomorrow.
Therefore, Allah Almighty opens to His
servant’s new hives to produce new honey. Old honeycombs eventually
become finished, only the wax remains, and new hives of heavenly
knowledge, like pure sweet honey, are opening to people. As
people’s understanding progresses, they require new levels of
knowledge according to their capabilities. The answer provided to
people in the last century cannot be the same answer as today.
Today we are in the third millennium, so the answer is coming in
It is also important who is asking the
question. If someone else comes and asks the same question, I must
give an answer according to his level of understanding. It cannot
be otherwise. If we speak above their understanding level, they
cannot reach you. If we speak below their level, they may pay you
no attention and thus gain no benefit from what we are saying.
Therefore, every time people increase their level of understanding,
expanding the limitations of their minds, we must give
corresponding answers according to their specific situation and
We must understand that heavenly knowledge,
which is something imparted unto us, is a thing that grows up to
reach up to the heavens. Nothing else on earth, even a moment in
time, if it were to grow exponentially, could ever reach the moon,
let alone the heavens. Heavens are always going to be above
everything else. We cannot be over the heavens. Heavenly knowledge
is unlike the limited knowledge we posses within our physical minds
and will always be over it. As much as we may try to conceive and
contrive things within our physically limiting minds, we will be
unable to reach to heavenly knowledge.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO DRAW CLOSER
It is your soul’s LOVE. Your heart is like a
container. If you use that container, filling it with water, you
cannot put milk in that same container. If it is full of milk, you
may not put oil in it. If it is filled with oil, you cannot put in
it tea. The container can only be filled with one of these.
One of the bad characteristics of our
physical material body is that we have an inherent love for this
life and everything on earth. Mostly people are only interested in
the things provided to them in this physical world. People have
fully engrossed themselves in living this life to its fullest.
Their love of this life has completely filled their hearts and there
is no room left for the love of God. Even though they are saying,
“God is Love,” they are liars. God is not love, and love is not
God. However, there is a love for God that can make you approach to
His divine presence.
If you start cleaning your heart from the
temporal love of this life, permanent love of God will enter your
heart. That permanent love will increase your spiritual power and
enable you to reach to Divine Presence. If you are able to do this,
you will find true and lasting benefit.
