“There is nothing in this world that is not God.”

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

My son! There is nothing in this world that is not God. He is action, purity; everlasting Spirit. Find Him in the cavern; loose the knot of ignorance. Shining, yet hidden, Spirit lives in the cavern. Everything that sways, breathes, opens, closes, lives in Spirit; beyond learning, beyond everything, better than anything; living, unliving.  It is the undying, blazing Spirit, that seed of all seeds, wherein lay hidden the world and all its creatures. It is life, speech, mind, reality, immortality.

You cannot have the knowledge of the Supreme Soul by
means of reasoning, erudition, or studying of the Vedas;
Only through causeless mercy does He reveal His own
person unto him whom He does accept as His own

– The Mundaka Upanishad

This is Tawhid, or the doctrine of the Oneness of reality (also spelled Tawheed), a cosmological concept as old as humanity that runs through the mystical aspect of all religions. As it similarly says in the Qur’an:

“Say (O Muhammad): “He is God, (the) One, The Self-Sufficient Master, He begets not, nor was He begotten; And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him.” (Sura 112:1-4)

“Thy Lord is self-sufficient, full of Mercy: if it were His will, He could destroy you, and in your place appoint whom He will as your successors, even as He raised you up from the posterity of other people.”(Sura 6:133)

Alhamdulillah! That the love and mercy of God is endless, His bounty boundless, and He is ONE!

Ya Haqq!

    May God continue to richly bless Irving and his precious readers with a great gratitude for Him.

    Truly our beloved Creator God is from everlasting to everlasting and no impurity is to be found in Him. We find Him best by seeking after His pure, holy, compassionate presence and by longing to study, meditate upon and trust and obey His words.

    What an active God He is, for He can cleanse our mind, heart and soul and bless us with a right spirit and give us insights into how to make money honestly to His glory.

    Truly this wonderful God that we are seeking to honour and give glory to is the author and sustainer of life. And yes He is also the author of all languages and the purifyer of our speech!

    How blessed we are that such a God reveals Himself to those who hunger and thirst after righteousness. What a comfort it is to know that He Himself is blessed beyond measure with a majestical, merciful mind and a faithful, forgiving heart!
