The One denoted by the name Allah was disclosed to us by Muhammad (saw) who, rather than a prophet, was the Rasul of Allah!
What was his exception? How was he different to previous Rasuls?
Abraham (as), Moses (as) and Jesus (as) were all Rasuls of Allah too…
Why is it compulsory to confirm the Risalah of Muhammad (saw)?
Why is it implied that if we accept and confirm all other Rasuls but deny Muhammad (saw) we will lose everything?
As the last and final Nabi, and the servant and the Rasul of Allah, Muhammad (saw) had a uniquely distinctive role to Abraham (as), who brought the concept of ‘Hanif’, and Moses (as), who conveyed tanzih (incomparability) and Jesus (as) who taught tashbih (similarity). Distinctive to all these, Muhammad (saw) adjoined tashbih and tanzih and proposed the ultimate: tawhid (unity).
Muhammad (saw) READ the sunnatullah, and through verses and hadith he informed people about everything they need to know based on this system.
Those who claim: “There is no need for hadith, the Quran is sufficient” neither understand the Quran, nor evaluate the signs pertaining to the One whose name is Allah, nor do they understand the functions of Rasul and Nabi!
They still imagine a great God in the distant space who sends commands via His winged angels to His postman-prophets on earth! They have no idea about who Muhammad (saw) is or what his function is. They do not recognize Muhammad’s (saw) disclosure of the magnificent sunnatullah, the mechanics of the universal system that embodies the whole of mankind.
Like an android, they suffice with repeating the Quran andperforming the physical actions of the salat to worship their deity God! As such, they will pass through this world unaware of their loss! The incomprehension and unawareness of these realities will be their biggest punishment.
If the ungrateful one who denies the Rasul and claims the Quran is enough were to erase all the knowledge in their memory that they received from the Rasul of Allah, will they have anything left at all to say about the Quran and the knowledge pertaining to it?
Being ungrateful to the one who enlightens with the knowledge of Allah and sunnatullah can only result in becoming completely and indefinitely veiled to the comprehension and experience of these realities. And this will not be in the form of a deity God sending punishment from the sky, but as the natural consequence of their own doings administered by their own essence. This occurs as an impediment in the brain, enforced by the mechanics of the system (sunnatullah). Any time one denies something they create an impediment between their self and the thing they deny!
The ungrateful ones who think of the Rasul of Allah (saw) as a postman-prophet impede their own paths by succumbing to their nonsensical assumptions.
Muhammad (saw) advised salat, which cannot be complete without READing the al-Fatiha, in respect of his Risalah. His observation of ablution (wudu) before performing salat, on the other hand, was the necessity of his Nubuwwah.
Some compare and liken the recital of ‘Bismillah’ and the ‘al-Fatiha’ in salat, which for the spiritually adept is the experience of ascension (miraj), to yoga or the Nirvana concept in Hinduism. Whereas these practices have nothing in common! I will share more on this later.
Muhammad (saw) is the final Nabi, because he has revealed all and everything of sunnatullah concerning humanity. The topic of ‘sunnatullah’ is extremely crucial. One who fails to understand sunnatullah will never be able to break out of their cocoon; they will continue to live within their imagination. In Sufism, this has been expressed as being in the sleeping state, or dreaming. After all, how real is a dream?
Due to the conditions of the century it was revealed in, metaphoric and symbolic language was employed, but today, those with adequate scientific knowledge can ascertain and evaluate Muhammad (saw) in a much different light.
We must realize and accept the following absolute truth:
The One whose name is Allah is the One whose name is Allah. And a servant is a servant!
Even if the existence of the servant and everything pertaining to their existence is derived from the One whose name is Allah, the servant is still just a ‘servant’ and can never be Allah.
Muhammad (saw), despite his magnificent being and knowledge, and the qualities of Allah he manifested, was just a ‘servant’ (abd) and this will always be the case!
The reason for this lies in the words of Muhammad (saw): “The part is the mirror of the whole.” This statement says something about servanthood.
What is a servant?
A servant is one who must obey the wants of the One denoted by the name Allah.
Let me explain by way of examples:
A single fig consists of the numerous seeds within it. A fig fruit represents unity within multitude; it symbolizes individuality within multiplicity. This is why there is a chapter in the Quran, named “The Fig”…
Furthermore, the holographic reality dictates the whole of the universe with all its dimensions is present within every single unit comprising the universe.
Based on this, then, Allah is present within every iota of existence, with His Essence, Attributes, Names, the Arsh, Kursi, and the seven heavens and earth!
This applies not only to man but to all forms of life in all dimensions!
All beings in the universe possess a form of consciousness befitting its own individual make-up, and the dimension and life in which it resides. A being from one dimension cannot perceive a being in another dimension due to its structural properties.
