What It Truly Means”,
Go To "Top of Page

God And You
Now “To Be One”, 
Within God Within You, 
As “You Having Died In God”, 
Before “You Die To The Flesh”, 
and that is for sure.

And For
You And God
Next “To Be One”, 
Within “Man-God/God-Man”, 
Within "The Heart" of "The One" 
Who Will "Let Himself End In God"
Within You, 
As “God Born Into God”, 
and that is for sure.

For In Truth, 
God Is “The Completeness of Man”, 
And In Truth, 
“Man-God/God-Man” Is, “The Completion of God”, 
and that is for sure.

And As “Such”, 
They Are One, 
That Is, 
"Man, Man-God, and “Man-God/God-Man”, 
As “One”, 
Within You, 
As Now "The Understanding" 
of “The Wealth” of “The Three Worlds”, 
Within "The Heart" of "The One" 
Who Will "Let Himself End In God", 
Within You, 
and that is for sure.

And In "This Way",
And Only In "This Way,
For You
 Not To Take On,
“If You Are A Wise Child”,
Now For Your Age,
“Not Just A Foolish Child”,
Now For Your Age,
105 Million Rebirths,
Ending As “A Worm” In Hell,
With “Only” One Level 
of Elemental Consciousness,
Or “Feeling”,
As Bawa Teaches Us,
and that is for sure.

For In Truth
“Everything of God”
Within God Within You,
Is Now “Just Waiting” To Happen
Within God Within You,
And Within "That",
"Everything of Man-God/God-Man",
Is Now “Just Waiting” To Happen
Within "Man-God/God-Man Within You,
and that is for sure.

That Is, 
Within “The Heart” of “The One” 
Who Will “Let Himself End In God”, 
Now Within You, 
and that is for sure.

If You Like,
and that is for sure.

For Just Like “The Apple Seed”
Buried In “The Earth”,
When “The Truth” of Itself
Emerges From “Within Itself”,
When It Is Both
“Ready To Hear” Its Truth,
And Ready To Either,
“Accept Or Reject” Its Truth,
Not All Apple Seeds Germinate, 
Some “Reject Their Truth”,
and that is for sure.

Refusing To Give Up
“Their Current
Selfish, Self Centered, Egotistical Life”,
Within “The Earth”,
As Somehow “Separate From” The Earth,
And As Somehow “Separate From”
The “Germ” of “The Apple Seed”,
And Within That”,
Separate From “The Apple Tree”,
Hidden Within “That Germ”, 
and that is for sure.

And Instead
Continue Living Within “The Earth”
As “A Separate Life”
At Least For A Little While More,
Until “They Rot In Earth”,
And Then “Die In The Earth”,
And Take On “105 Million Rebirths”,
But Never Again As “The Apple Seed”,
That Has Come From “The Mature Apple Fruit”,
On “The Mature Apple Tree”,
To Join As “One With” The Earth,
To Again Tell “The Story”
of “The Oneness”
 of “The Apple Seed and The Apple Tree”,
and that is for sure.

Like “This”,
You, and Each of My Children
Are In Truth “The Seed” of “God’s Tree”,
As “God’s Child”, Which Is “Your Soul”,
And You Are Now Buried 
Within “The Earth” of God,
Which Is Now “Your Mind”,
And You Have Now Become
“Like The Apple Seed”,
A “Separate Life” Within “Your Mind”, 
and that is for sure.

But Now You,
And Each of My Children,
Without Exception,
Again Like “The Apple Seed”,
Have “Now Heard” Your Truth,
Because Now Both
“You Are Ready To Hear It”,
And Ready To Either
“Accept Or Reject” Your Truth,
and that is for sure.

And Like “The Apple Seed”
If You Accept “Your Truth”
Then You Become “The Everything” of God”,
Within God Within You,
And Within “That”
“The Understanding” of All of “That”,
And Within “That”,
You Next Become “The Nothing” of God,
And Within “That”
“The Understanding” of All of “That”,
And Within “That”,
You Next Become 
“The Power, Within The Essence, 
of The Everything” of God,
And Within “That”
“The Understanding” of All of “That”,
and that is for sure.

And Within “That”,
God Next Becomes 
“The Everything” of “Man-God/God-Man”,
Within “Man-God/God-Man” Within God, 

And Within “That” 
“The Understanding” of All of “That”
And “You” Will Be “That”,
And “We” Will Be Within “That”, 
As “One”.

And If Not,
Then Hell Becomes Your Only Eternal Fate,
NOT As Punishment,
But Rather,
As “Justice”,
But Rather,
Because “That Is What You Want”,
and that is for sure.

And It Is For You,
And For Each of My Children,
Without Exception,
To Now To Start
To “Live This Truth”,
That In Truth,
“There Is Nothing Other Than God”,
And Within “That”, That In Truth,
Right Now, “God Is One With Man”,
And Within “That”, That In Truth,
“Man Is One With God”,
and that is for sure.

That Is Now 
“Your Salvation”
From “Your Falsehood”
From “An Eternal Elemental Life”
Within “Your Mind” Within You,
As Eternally “Separate From” God Within You,
and that is for sure.

My Dearest Loving Children
Please Start To Celebrate “Your Truth”,
In “This Way”,
By Now Joining As “One With” God,
That Is, “As Two Lives Now Living As One Life”,
First On The Outside, And Then Within,
That Is,
By Now Joining As “One With”
“The Life and Teaching”,
And With “The Heart”,
of Our Dearest Loving Son,
And Your Dearest Loving Brother,
Shaikh Muhaiyaddeen (Ral.),
In Whom “We Are Well Pleased”,
and that is for sure.

And If You Do,
Then God
Will Do Everything Else Necessary
To Make “Your Life”
Truly Successful In “Your Lifetime”,
and that is for sure.

Something To Get God,
To Get “Your Soul”,
To “Think About A Lot”,
if you like,
If You Will “Only Let Him”,

Bawa. My Love You - Shaikh Muhammad Rahim Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (may God be pleased with Him, and with Us). Amen.

The Purity of The Heart

A talk given by His Holiness, M. R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (Ral.), on March 9, 1985, Now As The Chapter, "The Purity of The Heart", In The Beautiful Book of Wisdom, "The Triple Flame - The Inner Secrets of Sufism", By Our Dearest Loving Father Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (Ral.). And Now As Expanded Upon (In Brackets (xxx), and In Red), By Our Dearest Loving Son, And Your Dearest Loving Brother, Shaikh Muhaiyaddeen (Ral.), if you like, and that is for sure.


The One without sorrow is the One who can ease our sorrow, who can eliminate our sorrow, the One without sorrow is the One who has the capacity to end our sorrow. This purity has the capacity to ease our sorrow and suffering, 

(Bawa. By Bringing Into “The World”, Now For Our Age, Now For All Life, “The True Human Being”, The “True Gnana Guru”, Now For Our Age, Now For All Life, Who Is Still Living In “The World” With Us, and that is for sure.

(Bawa. And Now For Your Age, Now For Your Life, “The True Human Being”, The “True Gnana Guru”, Now For Your Age, Now For Your Life, Who Is Still Living In “The World” With You, Is Now Our Dearest Loving Son, And Your Dearest Loving Brother, Shaikh Muhaiyaddeen (Ral.), In Whom “We Are Well Pleased”, and that is for sure)

A'üdhu billähi minash-shaitänir-rajïm, I seek refuge in God from the evils of satan, the rejected. 

Bismillähir-rahmänir-rahïm, in the name of God, the most merciful, most compassionate, the creator, sustainer and nourisher.

May all praise and praising be given to Allah alone, the one mighty God. 

Since He alone is aware of “that state” (Of Giving And Receiving Praise) He does not put great value on praise or praising, nor does He put less value on ridicule or debasement, (Realizing That “Both” Praise Or Ridicule of God In Truth Is Just “Two Sides” of “The Same Coin”, of “The One Coin”, That Is, Just “Two Sides” of “The Same Worship” of “The Self”, That Is, of “The Same Worship” of Yourself, As You Somehow Now Existing On “The Illusory Outside” of You, As If Somehow You Are “Separate From” God, Within You, And As If Somehow You Are “Separate From” The Creation of God, Within God Within You, And For A Little While More, As If Somehow You Are “Separate From” Your Brothers and Sisters, All of Which of Course, Is “Just Not True”, And As Such, In Truth “Has No True Value”, and that is for sure). 

He puts the same value on praise and ridicule, taking to His heart, as the same, those who praise Him and those who ridicule Him, accepting to His heart, as the same, those who are charitable and those who are not. This is His state, His intention, He is without fault. 

Later, on the last day, on Judgment Day when good and bad are investigated, when He reckons what must be meted out to each person, only then a person is told, 

"Because of the things you have done 
this is your place (For Eternity), 
because of what you did this is yours. 

Very well, 
is this what you were working for,
is this what you have chosen? 

You certainly are My child. 
Very well My son,
 if this is what you want you may go there." 

Then God turns to the next one saying, 

"Now is that what you wanted? 
Very well My son, have that because you wanted it." 

This is the way He decides, but only at the end, (That Is, “Whatever You Want Is What You Get”, For Eternity, As Bawa Teaches Us, That Is, “The House You Build Is The House You Will Be Given”, For Eternity, That Is, “The Crop You Grow Is The Crop You Will Harvest”, For Eternity, As All of “The Religions Teach Us”, and that is for sure).

(Bawa. That Is, As “The Justice of God”, As Bawa Teaches Us, That In Truth “The Justice of God Is That Whatever You Intend Is What You Will Receive”, For Eternity, and that is for sure)

(Bawa. But Now, As “The Infinite Mercy And Compassion” of God, Now For Your Age, Now For Your Life, “The True Human Being”, The “True Gnana Guru”, Now For Our Age, Now For Your Life, Who Is Still Living In “The World” With Us, and that is for sure, That God Has Give To You, And To All of My Children, As Now Our Dearest Loving Son, And Your Dearest Loving Brother, Shaikh Muhaiyaddeen (Ral.), In Whom “We Are Well Pleased”, and that is for sure, Is Truly Capable of Giving You “Your Judgment”, That Is, Giving You “Your Day of Reckoning”, Right Now, Before “You Die In To The Flesh”, As They Say, and that is for sure)

(Bawa. That Is, While You Can Still “Do Something About It”, Because In Truth “The Next Time” You Hear It, After “The Rabb”, The Creator Calls You, In “Your Current State” of “Illusory Separation” From God, You Will Hear “The Same Judgment”, The Same Reckoning, But “Then” You Will Not Be Able To Change It, Then You Will Not Be Able To “Do Anything About It”, and that is for sure.

(Note To The Reader: Click “HERE” To Read About “The Rabb” Calling You, If You Now Still Refuse To “Hear And Accept “Your Judgment”, Your Reckoning”, HERE And NOW, That Is, Now At “The Divine Feet” Our Dearest Loving Son, And Your Dearest Loving Brother, Shaikh Muhaiyaddeen (Ral.), In Whom “We Are Well Pleased”, and that is for sure, And Now Still Refuse To Join As “One With” Him, That Is, As “Two Lives Living As One Life”, First On The Outside, And Then Within, To Change “Your Judgment”, Your “Day of Reckoning”, From “You As Separate From God”, To “God As One With You”, and that is for sure)

(Bawa. All of Which Can Be Found In Beautiful Detail In Chapter 03, “Going Up The Mountain”, In The Beautiful Book of Wisdom, “A Mystical Journey”, From “The Life and Teaching” of Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (Ral.), And Now From “The Life and Teaching” of Our Dearest Loving Son, And Your Dearest Loving Brother, Shaikh Muhaiyaddeen (Ral.), and that is for sure, And Now As “The Life and Teaching” of Our Dearest Loving Grand Son, Shaikh Muhammad Rahim Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (Ral.), and that is for sure)

And similarly for ourselves, we who are God's devotees, how should we deal with the responses we receive, whether they happen to be praise or blame?

No matter if people elevate or slight us, we must treat them equally in our hearts. We should not find happiness in praise or sorrow from something which (In Truth) is not praise, (But Rather, Is Just “The Two Sides” of “The One Coin”, of “The One Coin” of “Self Worship”, That Is, of “The Worship of Ourselves As “Separate From” God, And As “Separate From” The “Creation of God”, And As “Separate From” Each Other”, and that is for sure).

Because if we do we have to accept whatever is being given out: if it is praise and we accept it, we must also accept blame, (Which Will Most Certainly Follow It, Follow The Praise, For As Bawa Teaches Us, “The One Who Praises You Today, Is The Same One Who Will Blame You Tomorrow”, and that is for sure).

We have to be equally happy with both because God does the same thing, He treats both sides equally. He does not have the qualities of anger, hate, bitterness or enmity. He does not feel hostility nor does He hold one person in higher esteem than any other. He behaves the same way with everyone, He treats everyone with equality. 

The One who creates, the One who provides nourishment, the One who protects us without divisiveness does not treat anyone differently from anyone else. He makes every life, exalted or debased, as precious as His own, He trusts every life as He trusts His own and He offers love equally to all living things.

This is “The Kind” of “Compassionate Heart” we must have, and for that reason we must rid ourselves of the dirt lying within ourselves.

(Bawa. And “You Must Do This, By “You Not Doing It”, But Rather, “By You Getting “God To Do It”, For You, While God Still Can”, That Is, Before “The Angel of Death” Finds You In “Your Current State” of “Illusory Separation” From God, Within “Your Mind” Within You”, and that is for sure).

(Note To The Reader: Click “HERE” To Read About What Bawa Calls, “The Most Difficult Task In Your LIfe”, As Follows,

“At this point I realized that the most difficult task in life is to find a true man among the created beings.

To find a true human being and to understand him is very difficult indeed. Only after realizing the true man and God within myself could I perform true meditation. I had to understand the cage of this body”.

Outer acts are not real. I had to find the place within to perform true meditation”).

(Bawa. All of Which Can Be Found In Beautiful Detail In “The Introduction” To The Beautiful Book of Wisdom, “Shaikh and Disciple”, From The Life and Teaching” of Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (Ral.)And Now From “The Life and Teaching” of Our Dearest Loving Son, And Your Dearest Loving BrotherShaikh Muhaiyaddeen (Ral.), and that is for sure, And Now In Truth As “The Life and Teaching” of Our Dearest Loving Grand SonShaikh Muhammad Rahim Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (Ral.), and that is for sure)

My precious children, jeweled lights of my eyes, suppose you wear a very clean, very white piece of cloth and one tiny particle of dirt or a tiny drop of ink falls on it. This stands out quite clearly, the dirt or the black dot of ink is very visible, very evident. 

Now suppose there is a black cow, any mark which is darker black, or even a tiny dot of white is not very noticeable, you don't talk or wonder about it much, but you can't make the cow white. 

And so in our hearts, in hearts that are perfectly pure, if there is even an atomic particle of envy or doubt, an atomic particle of divisiveness or a sense of differences, an atomic particle of anger, even if it is so tiny, just as small as an atom, it is readily seen, as a tiny black dot is clearly evident on a white cow. 

In the same way, this tiny stain on the heart is very evident to God and His justice, it is readily seen there, even though you have to look intently at other people to detect what is there. 

This is the reason why God immediately notices the slightest thing that happens to any of His devotees and says, 

"That is not good for you, 
get rid of it at once, 
there is a tiny thing in you, 
throw it away." 

This is the way God cautions them. He warns them, telling them to wash it away and rid themselves of even such a tiny stain, bringing them to a good, clear point. 

(Bawa. And “This” Is “The Work” of God”, Within You, Not of “You” Now Living A Life of “Separation and Differences” As “An Illusory Person” of “Race, Religion, and Blood Ties”, That Is, of “Arrogance, Karma, And Illusion” On “The Illusory Outside” of You, and that is for sure.

(Bawa. But “There Is A Problem”. You “Won’t Let Him”, That Is, You Won’t Let God Do, What Only God Can Do, Which Is To “Awaken The Wisdom Now Surrounding “Your Soul”, Which In Truth Is “HIs Child”, And Teach It About “What It Does Not Know”, Which Is “God’s Understanding” of “God’s Creation”, And Within “That”, Which Is “Man-God/God-Man”’s Understanding” of God, and that is for sure.

(Bawa. And You Will Be “That”, And We Will Be Within “That”, As “One”, and that is for sure. Amen)

We have to think about this and make every point in our heart perfectly pure, we must always keep it clean.

Precious jeweled lights of my eyes, consider the ocean. Many, many gales and storms push silt to the shore along with the water, and sand is also washed up there. Now people go to the seashore for the air and sit on the beach saying it's healthy, this salt water, the salt air and sand are good for rheumatism and several illnesses. 

Although there is so much dust, there is so much dirt in the ocean, once all that is pushed ashore the dust disappears, the sand on the beach is very clear. 

Although all that dirt was in the sand we can still sit there and come away without any of it sticking to our clothes. No matter how much dirt we sit on or lie around in, we should be like the sand at the seashore and make sure none of the dirt sticks to our hearts. 

Whether we live among sinners, among those who do good or those who do evil, no dirt will stick to us provided we keep our hearts clean, (By Finding, Realizing, And Understanding, “The Life and Teaching”, and “The Heart”, of “The True Human Being”, That God Has Now Placed Within “The Creation of God”, Now For Our Age, And Now For Our Life, Which Is Now Our Dearest Loving Son, And Your Dearest Loving Brother, Shaikh Muhaiyaddeen (Ral.), In Whom “We Are Well Pleased”, and that is for sure)

This is a way to make our lives perfectly pure.

As the sand at the seashore is so clean and free of dirt, we must make the hearts of our children perfectly pure. No matter where they go to play, no matter what they sit around in we must make sure they grow up with perfectly clear hearts. 

The lessons we teach them, the way we bring them up depends on what we do because they emulate our actions. They try to imitate the words we use like parrots, they try to do what they see us do. If we become angry a child will demonstrate anger in his or her own way; if we swear, no matter what we do, a child will repeat this. 

A child learns what we teach him or her (Through Our Action) and then teaches that to his or her own children, this is what follows. We are teachers, we are teachers for the life of our child from the time he is born right until the end. Whatever we teach a child is what he teaches others, a child copies what he sees. 

If we can present good words, dignified words, beautiful words, words filled with love, with wisdom to a child, he will grow on the path of truth. And if we want to do this, we ourselves must be transformed, this is the greatest teaching for a child.

(Bawa. But We Have To Be Very, Very Careful Not To “Show The Child” The Example of “The Hypocrite”, That Is, of One Who “Says One Thing” On The Outside, “But Keeps Another Thing” Within The Heart", For Example, Like Telling The Child To “Have Faith and Trust In God, Not In The World”, But In Truth Demonstrating “The Opposite” To The Child, Moment To Moment, Hour To Hour, Day To Day, Year To Year, In His Life, Like Demonstrating To The Child “Faith and Trust In The World, Not Faith and Trust In God”, and that is for sure)

(For As Bawa Teaches Us, “What Destroys The Children of The World, Is The Hypocrisy of The Parents”, and that is for sure)

A cow or a goat grazes and eats grass, then if it yawns the smell we have is the smell of the grass or leaves it ate. If a dog eats fecal matter the smell which comes from its mouth is the smell of excrement. The odor which comes from our mouth when we open it is the smell of something we ate before. A poisonous snake lies in its hole and it yawns too, when it does we identify the stench easily and say, 

"O, it's a snake!" 

We know immediately there is a snake close by when we notice the smell. In the same way, as any animal opens its mouth revealing an inner quality, human beings also reveal what is in their hearts and their intentions when they open their mouths, what is inside emerges. 

Now if the heart is in a good state there is a good fragrance, there are good words, we find words of love, compassion and mercy coming out. For others, for those who are filled with aggression, filled with anger, very harsh words might come out. 

What is in a person's heart comes out in many different ways. Coming from some hearts we find sabür, inner patience, from some shakür, absolute contentment, from some tawakkul, surrender to God, from some al-hamdu lilläh, offering all praise to God, and from some hearts we find peace. 

This means whatever we think inwardly is seen by others outwardly. We have to think about this, (And Truly Join In Partnership With God, That Is, As “One With” God, As “Two Lives Living As One Life”, First On The Outside, and Then Within, To Demonstrate “God” To “The World”, That Is, To Demonstrate “The Qualities and Actions of God” To The World, That Is, By Learning From “The True Human Being”, From “The True Gnana Guru”, Now For Our Age, Now For Our Life, While We Are Both Still Living In The World, “How Not To Be There, As Separate From God, So God Can Be There As One With Us”, and that is for sure).

(Bawa. And Also “This Is Why Bawa Teaches Us”, “That All We Ever See In Our Life” Is But A Reflection of “Our Own Life”, That Is, of “The Current State” of “Our Heart”, of “Our Mind”, Within Us, Not Something About “The Other People Or Things That We Encounter As We Live Out Our Life In The World”, and that is for sure)

(Bawa. And Also “This Is Why Bawa Teaches Us”, “My Son, “You Must Not Find Fault” With Any of The Creation of God. You Must Realize That “The Center Is Within”. You Must “Open Your Wisdom”, Stand In The Center, And “Look Intently At Yourself”. Then You Will Understand “The Point”. Do Not “Waste Your Time” Looking At “Other People”, Trying To Figure Out “Why They Act The Way They Do”, Because “Everything Will Go Wrong”, Because Each Person Sees “HIs Own Faults” In Others", and that is for sure)

My very precious children, jeweled lights of my eyes, our life(As An “Illusory Person” On “The Illusory Outside” of Us), is no better than the glowworm we occasionally find glittering along the way, an insect with a tiny light on its backside. That light has a kind of phosphorescent material, a point which glows brightly when light shines on it. 

There is a similar point in man's life which shines without his knowledge, the soul shining between the points of birth and death, is also like that, one aspect of the seven levels of consciousness or wisdom. 

Now there are certain birds, a kind of oriole, which catch these glowworms for the nests they build, nests with one room for the husband, a bedroom for the husband and wife, a restroom, some space to store food and other rooms for their children. 

They collect paddy and grains in the nest, then when the eggs they lay are hatched and the little fledgelings emerge, the husband is sent to his own room while the mother bird comes to the nursery to feed the babies with bits of grain. 

The male catches a glowworm and brings it to the nest, sticking the head of the insect to the wall with a little clay as the tail keeps flickering, giving off a greenish light. And so the insect is a lamp for the fledgelings.

When wisdom grows in a human being God's power (Naturally) increases in him, (That Is, Up To The Point Where “You Stop It”, Which Naturally Happens At Puberty, When As Bawa Tells Us, “You Are Swallowed” By “The Black Snake”, Around The Age of 12, And You Are Then Given “The Opportunity” By God To Either “Keep Your Wisdom Growing”, Or “Continue To Stop It”, Three Times In Your Life, That Is, Before You Are 20, Before You Are 40, and Before You Are 60 Years Old, and that is for sure).

(But It You Choose To “Keep Your Wisdom Growing”, Then) when a man grows from infancy, his wisdom increases until he reaches the state of Son-God, that is, when the soul merges with the radiance of Allah. 

(That Is,) His wisdom reaches the resplendence of the sun as he is transformed into light, a state in which he is not to be seen (In The World), because he is transformed into light, God's resplendence. 

This is the goal of man's life which we cannot say is ordinary or insignificant. 

Just as a child grows from infancy to a greater size, wisdom also grows that way in us, starting off like a small child, growing within us. Truth grows in us the same way. 

God, devotion to God, and trust in God grow the same way too. 

There are children of gnänam, children of divine wisdom, growing inside man; wisdom is one child, truth is another, God is also a child.

(Bawa. That Is, “The Wisdom of The Soul”, Within “The Body of Truth”, Within Which Is “The Child of Grace”, Or As Bawa Teaches Us, As “The Resplendence, The Radiance, The Resonance, and The Grace”, In Chapter 12, The “Inner Qur’an”, In The Beautiful Book of Wisdom, “Islam and World Peace: Explanations of A Sufi”, and that is for sure).

Similarly, there are three flames, three lights growing within us this way, three Arabic letters, alif, läm and mïm, that become the triple flame within ourselves when we, (In Partnership With God, As "One With" God, That Is, As "Two Lives Living As One Life", First On The Outside, And Then Within), make these three children grow. 

Then we can see them speaking to us inwardly, offering comfort. 

In addition to “that”, a state which is serenity and tranquility emerges within ourselves giving us peace, giving peace offered with compassion and love to everyone around. 

This is the state of celestial beings, of God, of heavenly beings and those with wisdom, this is the state of the prophets.

When earth was gathered from the four directions to create Adam (Ral.)  God made this one fistful of earth, and as Adam (Ral.)  was created, He pressed the light of Nür Muhammad on his forehead. 

The Nür is plenitude, completeness, that light. 

All the prophets are just one fistful of earth, the whole world is just one fistful of earth, all this is only one fistful of earth to God. 

For us, of course, it has become a thousand fistfuls, for us it is countless fistfuls, but for God it is only a single handful. 

Within the scope of God's vision, each prophet is only a tiny ray, atomic in size. He split the prophets into millions and millions of tiny atoms which He has nurtured. 

When our wisdom, our abilities, our qualities and actions grow inwardly, our actions, qualities and our beauty flourish proportionately.

Precious jeweled lights, think about this, if a man is destroyed or ruined by his own actions, what can the annävi do? 

Annävi means teacher, a teacher of wisdom, of mantras, of good qualities, a teacher who shows his student how to make medicines and herbal remedies while teaching him different things about his life. 

But if a student chooses to push all this aside, if he decides to say, 

"All right then teacher, 
I've done everything you told me to,"

he is foolish.

When a guru or a shaikh tells us something or when a physician gives us medicines we have to try them out, at any rate, to a certain extent. 

But if a student says, 

"I am right, 
I know," 

he is like a man who ruins himself with his own actions

What can a man of wisdom do, what can God or a physician do? No one can do anything, the teacher can't do anything. 

And so before we do somethingfirst we have to reflect inwardly, we have to think somewhat about our own life, and also about living our life for the sake of others, for the sake of bringing peace to others

We must show compassion, we must try hard to wipe away the tears of someone who is crying, we must try to pour at least a little water into the mouth of someone who is hungry. We must try to give someone whose heart is suffering at least a little love, soothe that heart and comfort it. 

If a man is weeping lull him to sleep, comfort him until he sleeps, until he rests. 

This is the way we should try to uncover the difficulty of every brother and sister. Try to give them the right kind of comfort and peace, this is the way we too, will have peace.

But if we are obstinate, if we are stubborn saying, 

"I can do it, 
he must come to me," 

this is not a good idea. 

God sets out to give nourishment to everyone equally whether they ask Him for it or not. He does this, after all, by Himself, providing everything with His compassion because that is His duty. 

That is the duty of the One who performs this duty, but a man who is arrogant and claims, 

"I am capable, 
I am the one doing it," 
is not doing that duty.

Suppose there are stones on a road, stones which make holes in the tires of thousands of cars, or hurt the feet of those who are on foot, or even cause accidents. 

Now suppose a bullock pulling a steamroller flattens stones on the road awhile, then leaves it there to lie down in the shade of a tree. Because it's dangerous to leave a steamroller sitting there on the road, whoever takes care of the bullock must come now to comfort it, soothe it, feed it, give it some water, bring it back, harness it and make it pull the roller once again to smooth out the stones for everyone's sake. 

God goes on His own to the people who are stone-hearted, makes them yield and do what they have to do. 

This does not mean that God is diminished when He entices them, makes them do their work, this is, in fact, a great achievement. 

A man who makes the bullock work gives comfort to a few people who can walk now with ease. 

And then suppose we say, 

"Do we need a person, 
do we need a bullock to do such things? 
Can't God do all this?

He can do this Himself, He certainly can. In less than the blink of an eye He can create and destroy, He has all that power to create, to protect and take everything back. He certainly has that power.

Sometimes God might see a blazing fire, He might just look on and let it burn: if there is evil before Him, He keeps looking at it and the evil burns by itself. 

God created everything, He created each thing for a particular reason, to do a certain thing. It was not His intention to do everything Himself, but He has the ability to control it all, to make things happen that cannot otherwise occur. 

He shows us anything is possible, He is the master because He demonstrates that what is impossible is possible. 

He is a Father who says, 

"You do the work." 

This is the way God teaches everything and protects us all. 

It is impossible to describe the splendor, the majesty of the One who is alone, the One who is omnipresent, omnipotent, illallähu, the One who gives peace and tranquility to everyone, the One who rules alone. 

We must try to foster these very exalted qualities, peace, tranquility and unity, and through this blessed achievement, He will know our worth, we will be among the fortunate.

My brothers and sisters, God has no form yet He has spoken to all these prophets, to Adam, Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Moses, David, Jesus, Idris, Isaac, Job and Jacob, peace be upon them all, giving them His admonitions and the commandments which have led us to accept God. 

We are the children of Adam (Ral.), all of us, and for faith in God we are the tribe of Abraham (Ral.) because true faith in God is exemplified by Abraham (Ral.). 

For the unity of our birth, Adam and Eve (Ral.) are our primal father and mother, we are all the children of Adam (Ral.) . For faith, for true faith in God, we are the tribe of Abraham (Ral.) 

Ishmael (Ral.) is the example of dedicating ourselves, cutting our attachments completely, by offering ourselves in qurbän, in sacrifice, to God. 

Moses (Ral.) came to release us from slavery, Moses (Ral.) came to release people from Pharaoh's slavery. 

Now what was this slavery? 

Do you think the Banü Isrä'ïl, the tribe of Israel, were only Pharaoh's slaves? 

No, every child of Adam (Ral.) is a slave, slaves to everything, slaves to wealth, slaves to woman, some are slaves to gold, to property and land, slaves to satan, slaves to desire, slaves to everything. 

This is the slavery Moses (Ral.) came to free people from. 

The Ten Commandments were given to release people from the slavery to all these things, not just Pharaoh's slavery, because man was enslaved by the earth and everything all around.

David (Ral.) came for unity. 

There are the four religions, Zabür, Hinduism, Jabrät, Fire worship, Injïl, Christianity and Furqän, Islam. Now three of these religions existed before the time of Muhammad (Sal.), and he united these religions by putting them together on one lap, in unity. 

Jesus (Ral.) is the soul. God is One, He has neither form nor shape, He is the One who creates and nourishes everyone. 

Lä iläha illallähu 'Ïsä rühulläh, there is no god but God and Jesus is the soul. The soul exists as light. 

Lä iläha illallähu Muhammadur-Rasülulläh there is no god but God and Muhammad (Sal.) is His messenger. As five fingers are united to make a hand, Muhammad (Sal.) brought unity, all religions became one, we all became the brothers of one family. 

Muhammad (Sal.) came to say there is one God, one father, one mother and one prayer. He brought everyone together praying only to that One in unity, a prayer which brings all living things into a single brotherhood and treats the hunger of everyone as our own, treats every brother and sister as our own. 

And there is only one truth, one love for everyone, there is one kind of justice we must all have. This is the way Muhammad (Sal.) created a brotherhood of unity.

God has neither form nor shape, but He has ninety-nine wiläyats or powers which are His qualities, His actions, and the conduct He resonates with, revealing the way He created. 

Who is God? He is the ninety-nine qualities, He is only to be known through His ninety-nine qualities. His qualities are what we can know as God. The qualities of God, His actions, His conduct, His duty and that truth, must be alive in a human being. 

If they are alive in a human being, if a man puts those qualities into action within himself, this is God

When God's qualities operate in man, those duties and qualities are the form of God, He has no other. 

The three thousand gracious attributes of His ninety-nine qualities are the gracious attributes protecting every living thing, helping every living thing with that compassionate grace, God's grace which soothes every life, which protects and comforts every life.

The action emanating from those qualities which are the light of God, the beauty of God, and His majesty, this is the form of God who is without form or shape, this is the quality that gives God form. 

We must cultivate those qualities in ourselves, and if we do, we can perceive that value, we can recognize God within ourselves, we can see the light, we can see the beauty and color within the light, we can perceive joy. This is certain. 

We must make God's qualities grow within ourselves, we must foster that truth and make it grow, because this is unity, this is the highest ideal for mankind, an ideal which will bring us peace.

My precious jeweled lights, each of us must think about this. May God help us all, may He guide us on a straight, true path. May He protect us here, both here and hereafter, may He reform our hearts, transform our hearts in every way. 

Make my children live in unity, O God, and take me to You, make them live with the highest ideals, make their good hearts shine like crystal. 

My precious jeweled lights, O God, may You unite them and accept all my precious children as Yours, may You accept all responsibility for my children, O God, and protect them. Ämïn, ämïn. 

Bless them with a life free of illness and free of want. May these prayers be heard, may they be fulfilled.

Ämïn, ämïn, as-salämu 'alaikum wa rahmatullähi, may the peace and blessings of God be with all of you”.
