  1. O how may I ever express that secret word? O how can I say He is not like this, and He is like that? If I say that He is within me, the universe is ashamed: If I say that He is without me, it is falsehood. He makes the inner and the outer worlds to be indivisibly one; The conscious and the unconscious, both are His footstools. He is neither manifest nor hidden, He is neither revealed nor unrevealed: There are no words to tell that which He is.
  2. As long as one tress-lip of the hair of your ego still remains I fear the Sect of Self-worship will survive. You claim "I am free from the Idol worship-- I'm liberated!" but I fear your Manifesto is itself an idol. …………Ahmad Jami (persian philosopher)
  3. Inheritance....... 2:180.) When death approaches one of you, if a good (wealth) is going to be left, a bequest should be made to the parents or relatives. This is a duty upon those who wish to be protected! 181. And whoever alters (does not comply with the bequest) after hearing it, the fault is only upon the one who alters it. Certainly Allah is the Sami, the Aleem. 4:7. )There is a share for men of what parents and relatives leave behind (with death). There is also a share for women of what parents and relatives leave behind, be it little or much, this is a share decreed by Allah. 8. And if relatives, orphans and the needy (who aren’t entitled for any share in an inheritance) are present during the distribution, treat them with kindness and provide a small portion for them as well... 9. Let them be concerned by Allah just as they would feel concern for their dependent children, if they were to leave them behind. Let them fear Allah and boldly speak the truth. 10. Indeed, those who consume the properties of the orphans are only filling their bellies with fire! A blazing fire is where they will end up. 11. Allah instructs you regarding your children as follows: The share of the male is twice that of the female... But if there are more than two females (children) then leave for them two thirds of (the estate); if (the heir) is a single (female), then half of the estate is hers... If the testator leaves behind children (as well as parents), then for each parent one sixth of the estate should be given. If he has no children and his parents are his only inheritors, (in this case) the mother should be given one third and the father the remaining two thirds of the estate... If he leaves behind siblings, then the mother should be given one sixth of what remains after any bequest he may have made or any debt. You fathers and your sons... You cannot know which of them is more worthy of your estate. (This is why these are) an obligation from Allah... Indeed, Allah is the Aleem, the Hakim. 12. (For the men) half of what your wives leave (inheritance) if they have no child is yours; but, if they have a child, one fourth of what remains after any bequest they may have made and debt they may have had... If (the men) have no children, then one fourth of what you leave behind is for your wives, but if you have children then one eighth of what remains after your bequest and debt... But if a man or woman leaves no ascendants or descendants, but has a brother or a sister, for each one is one sixth... If he has more (siblings) then they share one third of what remains after any will or debt... This (division) should not be detrimental... This is an ordinance from Allah... Allah is the Aleem, the Halim. The wording of this verse (4:12) makes clear the will of Allah. This distribution decreed by our Lord covers any part of the estate over and above a will and after paying off any debts incurred by the deceased or the estate. Thus God tells us that in cases where we leave no will, He provides one for us. From which ayah of Qur'an they made this law ?

    while in company with the body, the soul cannot have pure knowledge, one of two things follows—either knowledge is not to be attained at all, or, if at all, after death. For then, and not till then, the soul will be parted from the body and exist in herself alone. In this present life, I reckon that we make the nearest approach to knowledge when we have the least possible intercourse or communion with the body, and are not surfeited with the bodily nature, but keep ourselves pure until the hour when God himself is pleased to release us. And thus having got rid of the foolishness of the body we shall be pure and hold converse with the pure, and know of ourselves the clear light everywhere, which is no other than the light of truth.' For the impure are not permitted to approach the pure. These are the sort of words, Simmias, which the true lovers of knowledge cannot help saying to one another, and thinking. You would agree; would you not? Undoubtedly, Socrates.
  5. Know the One who is Consciousness and devoid of fire and air. Know the One of the nature of consciousness - who is devoid of Earth and water. Know the One of the nature of consciousness who is devoid of coming and going. I am neither of the nature of the void - nor of the nature of non-void. I am neither of pure nature nor of impure nature. I am neither form nor formlessness. I am the supreme reality of the form of its own nature. Renounce the world in every way. Renounce renunciation in every way. Renounce the poison of renunciation and non-renunciation. The self is pure, immortal, natural and immutable.
  6. My child, I am not difficult to comprehend, nor am I hidden in consciousness. My child, I am not difficult to perceive, nor am I hidden in the perceptible. My child, I am not hidden in the forms immediately near me. I am the nectar of knowledge, homogenous existence, like the sky. I am verily the reality - free of such blemishes as attachment. I am verily the reality - free of the grief caused by transmigratory existence. I am the nectar of knowledge, homogenous existence, like the sky. I have no such divisions as long or short. I have no such divisions as wide or narrow. I have no such divisions as angular or circular. I am the nectar of knowledge, homogenous existence, like the sky. I never had a mother, Father, Son or the like. I was never born and never did I die. I never had a mind. The supreme reality is undistracted and calm. I am the nectar of knowledge, homogenous existence, like the sky. I am pure, very pure - beyond reason and of infinite form. I am non-attachment and attachment - beyond reason and of infinite form. I am undivided and divided - beyond reason and of infinite form. I am the nectar of knowledge, homogenous existence, like the sky.
  7. 44:54. Thus it is... We partnered them (Rooh) with houris (bodies with superior and clear vision [heart])! 52:20. Resting on couches arranged in rows... We partnered them (Rooh) with houris (bodies with superior and clear vision [heart])! (All expressions in the Qur'an of female houris are symbolic, allegoric expressions, like other metaphors pertaining to the life of Paradise. The statement ‘Math’alul jannatillatiy’ contained in various verses, which means, “The example [metaphor] of Paradise” [13:35] or “The allegoric description [metaphoric representation] of Paradise” [47:15] are indications of this truth. 55:72. Houris (bodies that are equipped and capacitated to fulfill all of the desires of the forms of consciousness that manifest the attributes of the Truth) reserved only for their partners 56:22. And the houris with large eyes (bodies with superior and clear vision – unrestricted by the limitations of the biological body).

    I am

    All is verily the absolute Self. Distinction and nondistinction do not exist. How can I say, "It exists; it does not exist"? I am filled with wonder! The essence and the whole of Scripture is this Knowledge, this supreme Knowledge: That I am by nature the formless, all-pervasive Self. I have no mental activity, good of bad; I have no bodily function, good or bad; I have no verbal action, good or bad. I am the nectar of Knowledge - beyond the senses, pure. The mind indeed is of the form of space. The mind indeed is omnifaced. The mind is the past. The mind is all. But in reality there is no mind. You are He who is exterior and interior. You are the auspicious One existing everywhere at all times. Why are you running hither and thither deluded, like an unclean spirit? For you there is no birth or death, for you there is no mind, for you there is no bondage or liberation, no good or evil. Why do you shed tears, my friend? Neither you nor I have name and form.
  9. There is one more theory I recently heard in a majlis that our Imam travelled through time, the journey will end at the time of his reappearance. Since he travelling through time, than he is also passed through this time. So he is always present till his reappearance.
  10. Walekum Assalam, You are with your parents for 23 years, they love you and cared for you for 23 years and I believe they still love you and will love you all life, more than anyone else. There must be some reason for their reluctance in marrying you to that man. Remember they are the only one in the whole world always wish you to be happy. They do not ask you anything in return. I do not know anything about lebo Shia and Iraqi Shia because I am an Indian. Trust your parents, do not marry without permission of your parents.
  11. I am a fountain, You are my water.I flow from You to You.I am an eye, You are my light.I look from You to You.I am a traveler, You are my road.I go from You to You. …………Zeynep Hatun
  12. Did you ever told your mother that you love her ? Sometimes we have to express our feeling. Tell your Mom that you love her.
  13. Stillness, then silence, then random speech,Then knowledge, intoxication, annihilation;Earth, then fire, then light.Coldness, then shade, then sunlight.Thorny road, then a path, then the wilderness.River, then ocean, then the shore;Contentment, desire, then Love.Closeness, union, intimacy;Closing, then opening, then obliteration,Separation, togetherness, then longing;Signs for those of real understandingWho find this world of little value.
  14. 2:221. Do not marry (dualist) women who associate partners with Allah until they believe. A believing slave woman is definitely better than a (dualist) woman who associates partners with Allah, however pleasing she may seem to you. Nor give believing women in marriage to (dualist) men who associate partners with Allah until they believe. A believing slave man is certainly better than a (dualist) man who associates partners with Allah, however pleasing he may seem to you (for beauty is not in the body but in the sharing of faith). Such people (dualists) call you to the fire but Allah invites you (as much as the qualities of the Names comprising your essence allow) to Paradise and forgiveness. Allah makes clear His signs (of the reality) to people so they (these truths) are remembered. You know the answer.........
  15. The Truth fills the world,but to whom is Truth known?You ask so much of It,but It isn't separate from yourself.You believe in the world,you claim your daily bread as your own.How long will you keep up your lie?You know it's not like that.It's a long way to the other world.Be honest with yourselfthrough all the separation and painful yearning.Those who attain do not return.Those who come to the world willone by one drink the juice of death.This world is just a bridgealthough the young wouldn't guess it.Come, let's get to know each otherand make our work easier.Let's love, let's be loved.No one inherits this world.Yunus, if you can understand,if you can hear the meaning,find a little happiness.No one's here forever. ---Yunus Emre
  16. O assembly of jinn and men! If you are able to pass beyond the region of (illusion) heavens and the Earth, then pass. You cannot pass except by authority. Rasool (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and Imam Ali (عليه السلام) they penetrated the illusion by the authority of Allah.
  17. Author of this poem is Yunus Emre.
  18. Those who became completedidn't live this life in hypocrisy,didn't learn the meaning of thingsby reading commentaries.Reality is an ocean; the Law is a ship.Many have never left the ship,never jumped into the sea.They might have come to Worshipbut they stopped at rituals.They never knew or entered the Inside.Those who think the Four Bookswere meant to be talked about,who have only read explanationsand never entered meaning,are really in sin.Yunus means "true friend"for one whose journey has begun.Until we transform our Names,we haven't found the Way.
  19. Bound to his body, The seeker insists on striving Or on sitting still. But I no longer suppose The body is mine, Or is not mine. And I am happy. Sleeping, sitting, walking, Nothing good or bad befalls me. I sleep, I sit, I walk, And I am happy. Struggling or at rest, Nothing is won or lost. I have forsaken the joy of winning And the sorrow of losing. And I am happy. For pleasures come and go. How often I have watched their inconstancy! But I have forsaken good and bad, And now I am happy.
