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

September 28, 2011

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!
