  1. I know the characteristics of a momin it is mentioned in Qur'an. No one can become momin by one’s efforts. You can only witness that you are slowly turning into a momin. Like a fruit cannot ripen on its own. Characteristics of a ripe fruit like mango are that the fruit will become yellow and sweet in taste. Effortlessly Like you do not need to put in any efforts to become old. You only witness that your body is showing signs of old age.
  2. Allah is not a person in your sense of the word, though He may appear a person to you. He is that infinite ocean of consciousness in which all happens. He is also beyond all existence and cognition, pure bliss of being. There is nothing He feel separate from, hence He is all. No thing is He, so He is nothing. He is the power that makes the fire burn and the water flow, the seeds sprout and the trees grow. There is nothing personal about Him, though the language and the style may appear personal. A person is a set pattern of desires and fears and resulting actions; there is no such pattern i
  3. The wood produces fire which is not wood, so does the body produce the mind which is not the body. But to whom does the mind appear? Who is the perceiver of the thoughts and feelings which you call the mind? There is wood, there is fire and there is the enjoyer of the fire. Who enjoys the mind?
  4. A child is born into your world. Now, were you born into your world, or did your world appear to you? To be born means to create a world round yourself as the centre. But do you ever create yourself? Or did anyone create you? Everyone creates a world for himself and lives in it, imprisoned by one's ignorance. All we have to do is to deny reality to our prison. Once you create for yourself a world in time and space, governed by causality, you are bound to search for and find causes for everything. You put the question and impose an answer.
  5. Plural hands are names of Allah with which he created everything...... 3:6 It is HU who shapes (forms, programs) you in the womb as He wishes. There is no god, only HU, the Aziz, the Hakim. 30: It is HU who manifests creation and then returns it! And that is easy for Him (to do)! And to Him belongs the greatest examples in the heavens and the earth. HU is the Aziz, the Hakim.
  6. This shows that anything i have is given by God, it is an illusion that i acquired it by my efforts and intelligence. The event rise of the sun from the east is happening to me, cannot change it. This is only an example that anything that happens to me (the body), cannot change it. I (i am) only witness to all that happens.
  7. Words betray their hollowness. The real cannot be described, it must be experienced. I cannot find better words to answer your questions. What I say may sound ridiculous. But what the words try to convey is the highest truth. All is one, however much we quibble. And all is done to please the one source and goal of every desire, whom we all know as the 'I am'. Everything happens by itself, quite spontaneously. But man imagines that he works for an incentive, towards a goal. He has always a reward in mind and strives for it. The only free will you have is to undertake self-enquiry. Fre
  8. No, i cannot prove anything how can i. I am totally motivated by desire for pleasure and fear of pain. However noble my desire and justified my fear, pleasure and pain are the two poles between which my life oscillates. Desire not, fear not, observe the actual, as and when it happens, for you are not what happens, you are to whom it happens. It is my understanding of Quran which tells me that to be a living being is not the ultimate state; there is something beyond, much more wonderful, which is neither being nor non- being, neither living nor not-living. It is a state of pure awarene
  9. Yes, if I identify myself with "ego" then i will be punished in the hereafter, in other words again i will go to hell. If before death i realize that "i am not the body" then i will go to heaven. (Ego is Ahamkara in sanskrit aham+akara Aham is "I am" akara is "shape/form" Ahamkara means i am the body.)
  10. It is clearly said in the Quran La ilaha illa Allah. Believing in the thought "i am the body" is shirk. As long as you stick to this idea you will stay in hell.
  11. @pisceswolf96 The seeker is he who is in search of himself. Give up all questions except one: Who am I?‟ After all, the only fact you are sure of is that you are. The "I am"‟ is certain. The "I am this"‟ is not. Struggle to find out what you are in reality. To know what you are, you must first investigate and know what you are not. Discover all that you are not -- body, feelings thoughts, time, space, this or that -- nothing, concrete or abstract, which you perceive can be you. The very act of perceiving shows that you are not what you perceive. The clearer you understa
  12. I exist because of the thought that "i am the body" and my body is consist of only desires and fears. If i want to become non existent than i have to go beyond my desire and fear to realize that "i am not the body" or in other words "Not the body, but i am".
  13. So according to stoicism you cease to exist when you die means you are only this body ?
  14. What is the answer of this question in stoicism ?
  15. Missing in the list Umar ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib Abu Bakr ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib Uthman ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib Abu Bakr ibn Hassan ibn Ali Umar ibn Hassan ibn Ali Abu Bakr ibn Hussein ibn Ali Umar ibn Hussein ibn Ali Uthman ibn Hussein ibn Ali.
