Recommended: The Resonance of Allah: Resplendent Explanations Arising from the Nur, Allah’s Wisdom of Grace7 09 2014
As taken from the Preface:
Only God will know the glory of God.
Only God will know His power and His creation. Amin.
In the name of Allah, Most Merciful, Most Compassionate.
The secrets of every one of God’s creations and the explanations about them, the explanations regarding His prophets, the explanations regarding gnanam, ‘ilm, and wisdom, and the explanations about the lives—explanations of various things regarding His creations that were resonated by the Power that is God to His prophets and His saints—are being revealed in this book.
In these pages Allah explains that there are two parts within man—the inner and the outer, the inner prayer and the outer prayer. One is heaven, the other is hell; one is true, the other is false.
Many such meanings are explained by God in this book—the reality of: that which is God, that which is mankind, and that which is Truth. God provides these explanations through two lights of wisdom—the wisdom that is the Nur, and the wisdom that is the Qutb, both of which are the completeness. For my brothers and sisters—those who trust in God, those who have faith in God, and those who are human beings. This book serves to dispel their doubts, and fill them with wisdom and firm faith in God.
My brothers and sisters, please take this book, lay open your hearts (the land to God) to God, and then read it. Then the connection between God and us will be understood.
You should not think that just by reading this book once, you will have understood all the meanings contained in it. As you read it over and over again, more and more explanations will be forthcoming. As your wisdom unfolds, deeper and deeper meanings will be revealed. The more you read this book, the more meanings will be revealed.
May God help you. Amin.
“M.R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen- a Sufi mystic, can best be remembered for his efforts to bring unity through understanding to the faithful of all religions.”
Little is known of his early personal history. Records of his life began in the early 1900′s when religious pilgrims traveling through the jungles of Sri Lanka first caught glimpse of a holy man. They were overwhelmed by the depth of divine knowledge that he imparted.
Sometime later a pilgrim invited him to a nearby village, and with that began his public life as a teacher of wisdom.
Throughout Sri Lanka, people from all religious and ethnic traditions would listen to his public discourses. Many consulted him on how to conduct life’s affairs, including public figures, politicians, the poor, and the learned.
In 1971 Bawa Muhaiyaddeen accepted an invitation to visit the United States. Here, once again, people from all religious, social and ethnic backgrounds would join to hear him speak. Across the United States, Canada and England, he won recognition from religious scholars, journalists, educators and world leaders. The United Nation’s Assistant Secretary General, Robert Muller, asked for Bawa Muhaiyaddeen’s guidance on behalf of all mankind. Time Magazine turned to him for clarification during the hostage crisis in 1980. Thousands more were touched by his wise words when interviewed in Psychology Today, the Harvard Divinity Bulletin, the Philadelphia Inquirer, and the Pittsburgh Press.
