  1. I do not claim to know what you do not. In fact, I know much less than you do or other members of shiachat because my knowledge is solely based upon my understanding of Quran. Let's have this discussion... this is main question of the thread. I am unable to answer this question. All i know is that Allah is the absolute Consciousness, the eternal Mind, which prophets/imams/mystics throughout history have experienced as the transcendent Source of all creation. It is said by those who have known It to be pure Consciousness, Bliss, unmoving, unchanging, unqualified, bey
  2. Satan is just another name for Allah’s power of manifestation, His power of form-projection. It is Allah’s Power of manifestation, which remains eternally with Him, whether there is a manifestation or not; and it is also the actual world of forms which results from that power. In reality you were never born and never shall die. But now you imagine that you are, or have a body and you ask what has brought about this state. Why this suffering ? Why this test ? Why Allah created me ? Within the limits of illusion the answer is: satan (desire) attracts you to a body and makes you think a
  3. Where it is reported, i am quite sure not in Quran. Please understand the difference between satan and iblis. They are not same. Again...... who says satan worshipped God for thousands of years ? The world is a test. But the the test in not like exam. You do not know what is satan. So it is very difficult for you to understand the answers of all the questions you asked.
  4. Exactly, As a shadow appears when light is intercepted by the body, so does the person arise when pure self-awareness is obstructed by the 'I-am-the-body' idea. And as the shadow changes shape and position according to the lay of the land, so does the person appear to rejoice and suffer, rest and toil, find and lose according to the pattern of destiny. When the body is no more, the person disappears completely without return, only the witness remains and the Great Unknown.
  5. Oh yes the state we are in is unnatural. Everybody is born with his own desires and fears. The story where Adam (mankind : me, you everyone) went near the cursed tree (desires) and ate from it (fruit of the tree: fear) soon afterwards he started to identify himself with his body. Spiritual journey means that i have to go back to my natural state where i do not associate myself with a body. What is my natural state ? In my original state i am desireless and fearless. Whatever is the desire even homosexuality by itself is not right or wrong. It is nothing but striving for happiness. Hav
  6. Like when someone have fever, fever is not a disease it is a symptom that there is something wrong with the body. Similarly if someone says that he is homosexual than it is only a symptom that his spiritual journey is not yet started. That is the reason why it is considered a sin in Islam.
  7. You do not have the free will to become what you are it is the will of God. Being a homosexual is just a sign that you are far far away from the truth and reality. The homosexuality is only a desire belong to this body, real You is faultless sinless desireless and fearless. The purpose of life is to know your real self but you stick to the idea that you are nothing but the body. When you witness that your desire of homosexuality start to fade away, that will be the sign of start of self realization.
  8. It is like the flower and its colour. Without flower -- no colours; without colour -- the flower remains unseen. Beyond is the light which on contact with the flower creates the colour. Realise that your true nature is that of pure light only, and both the perceived and the perceiver come and go together. That which makes both possible, and yet is neither, is your real being, which means not being a 'this' or 'that', but pure awareness of being and not-being. When awareness is turned on itself, the feeling is of not knowing. When it is turned outward, the knowables come into being. To say: 'I
  9. 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. Free will and destiny exist only as long as the idea ‘I am the body’ is there.
  10. A creation never occurred at any time and exists only in the mind of the perceiver, as a conjured up phantom, causing consternation to the perceiver, who is himself an effect of the process. This universe came into existence at the time of your birth and it will cease to exist at your death. God does not exist. Existence belongs to you only. Only You want to know who am i? You created a world for yourself and lives in it, imprisoned by your own ignorance. Stop reading shahid mutaharri. Once you created for yourself a world in time and space, governed by cau
  11. I want to say few things...... Allah is one This is truth for sunni and for shia. Mohammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) is the prophet of Allah. This is truth for sunni and for shia. Quran is the book of Allah. This is truth for sunni and for shia. Hadeeth of Rasool (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) Sunni say our hadith books are correct shia hadith are faricated. Shia say our hadith books are correct sunni hadith are faricated. And same case with the Sunnah of Rasool (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). Well i do not know who is right. A true seeker of truth, trust only Quran.
  12. There is the body and there is the Self. Between them is the nafs, in which the Self is reflected as 'I am'. Because of the imperfections of the nafs, its crudity and restlessness, lack of discernment and insight, it takes itself to be the body, not the Self. All that is needed is to purify the nafs so that it can realise its identity with the Self. When the nafs merges in the Self, the body presents no problems. It remains what it is, an instrument of cognition and action, the tool and the expression of the creative fire within: The ultimate value of the body is that it serves to discover the
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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?
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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.)
  22. 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.
  23. @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
