Humanity Remains Indebted for the Bounties of the Spiritual Sun — The Holy Prophet

THE message of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) is indelible. Despite the lapse of many centuries, his words, actions and examples continue to illuminate all those who want to uplift themselves in the fields of practical ethics, knowledge, and spirituality, even in warfare and statecraft. The Holy Prophet — being the perfect man — upheld his principles all through his life.

We find many metaphors for the Prophet mentioned in the Holy Quran. In verses 33:45-46 Allah says: “O’ Prophet! Indeed We have sent you as witness (shahid) and the bearer of glad tidings (mubashir) and a warner (nazir); And as one who invites to Allah by His leave (dai) and as a lamp spreading light (sirajum munirah)”.

All these metaphors reflect the Holy Prophet’s mission and contain deep meanings. Their proper understanding can be an engine for creating a more united and cohesive worldwide Muslim community. One such metaphor of the Holy Prophet is sirajum munirah. As-siraj means the lamp which emits light to banish darkness. In verse 71:16 Allah says we have made the sun as-Siraj (a lamp). The Prophet is like the sun, whose spiritual light, guidance, knowledge and examples of ethical behaviour illuminate the believer’s path. They find eternal peace, happiness and success in the world and the hereafter.

In our physical world, the sun has many distinctive features. First, it is one of the greatest signs of Allah’s creation, which emits light, energy and heat from the very start. It never sets, though we tend to say that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. In actuality it never rises nor sets. It rotates around its axis and is ever-shining, ever-glowing. The earth’s portion which falls in front of it becomes bright and a new day dawns. Similarly, the Holy Prophet — being the spiritual sun — never sets. He is the last and final Prophet and his light continues to guide humanity in general and believers in particular towards eternal bliss.

Secondly, the sun does not need any proof of its existence. All can see the existence of the sun. Similarly, the Holy Prophet does not require any evidence to prove his spiritual merits. Only those in the Arab society who were without ‘sight’ did not see his spirituality and remained ignorant. The Holy Quran refers to them in verse 7:179, “that they have eyes wherewith they see not”. They included persons like Abu Jahal, Abu Lahab and others who were unable to free themselves from a rigid mindset.

The third feature of the physical sun is its limitlessness. No person on earth has ever ventured to measure the sun’s radiance, light and its capacity in exactitude. Only estimates have been expressed. Similarly, in the spiritual realm, no one has ever imagined the greatness, respect and dignity of the Holy Prophet. His coming among believers has been declared a great favour by Allah (3:164).

Another important feature of the physical sun is that it is a source of abundant energy, which makes our planet liveable. Many cultures know how to use sunlight to heal a number of illnesses. A moderate amount of sun exposure spurs the human body to make Vitamin D, which strengthens human bones and kills harmful germs and bacteria. Since many diseases are caused directly or indirectly by the absence of sunlight, therefore, the sun has an essential role in the elimination of diseases.

Similarly, the Holy Prophet’s coming to this world uplifted humanity. It banished many spiritual diseases like ignorance and vanity that cast ominous shadows all over. He opened new avenues of knowledge, promoted intellectual thin­king and supported selfless service.

Just as the physical sun solves so many of mankind’s problems, the problems that lie on the spiritual path that stand in the way of ethical elevation have solutions within the teachings of the Holy Prophet.

The sun’s heat melts snow which fills rivers with water. This enables crops to grow. With the energy of the sun, the earth grows fruits, flowers and grains. It helps rain to come down to spread greenery and make the earth verdant. It increases soil fertility, but not all soil responds positively.

Similarly, the Holy Prophet’s spiritual message increases the radiance of the heart of the believer. Before the Prophet’s appearance in Arabian society, there were some who were engaged in looting the trade caravans, killing their newborn daughters and other unethical practices. But the Holy Prophet transformed their lives and made them into exemplary individuals. In this connection, the example of his companion Hazrat Abuzar Ghaffari can be cited.

Humanity remains indebted for the bounties of the spiritual sun — the Holy Prophet. His teachings and example must be acted upon and passed on to the new generation.

  • And the Lord says..... God Bless you Sultan...and really, I do not know what it all looks like in the end. I just know know I have to shoot for the stars, the moon, the sun, or the Son...per my Abba. We will see, how it all goes down, as said. I am not afraid to die. I have something to say, of my Father or Mother...Father Earth...Mother Nature...we are of one...of your planet. I did not come by accident and I will leave soon. However, it was a pleasure to meet you. Just have to push energy into creation and that is not about speaking about what is wrong. If you do not have anything to create something new in the middle of wrong....then words....well are useless...I totally dig action words...I do believe they are adjectives...however....we will see. It is looking like you all can't hear what my ABBA was about...

  • So what if the second coming was not of a man....since....well I can go on, but have spoke of it here several times.  

    What if the second coming was of a woman, and really....she is not perfect.  Not in your earthly way, but however perhaps, in her ABBA's way.

    Then what, you men?  Really?  Don't know that my ABBA, who is like Shakespeare....really...written in song and poetry, 

    but please, let us keep speaking of the unrighteousness of this world instead of getting off line and gathering, 

    I say heaven, or HEAVEN....really....come on, you are here....could we shift gears here and then....guess what??????  

    Well, it could be totally HOT.  A blessing?  A Suruti, Shenicah, a word from the Lord...many names of us, I am of...

    Who are we.  We are earthly beings, Spiritual Messengers...we are as the Lord sent us, or reincarnated us and we cannot but help of speak of my ABBA.

    We will face death to do this.  We know what is front of us...We are not afraid.  

    I would hope however, WE CAN...CHANGE THIS AROUND...GODLY PEOPLE...WE COME IN ALL NATIONS, ALL COLORS, ALL LANGUAGES....HOWEVER....WE CAN HEAR 

    ABBA AND NOTHING ELSE.  THEN WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD.

    I know it to be so.  I just do not know how to gather you all.  Stop arguing about what is of this earth and shoot toward heaven. 

    All this talking.....EVERYWHERE...BUT WHAT ARE YOU ALL DOING TO CHANGE THIS IN JUST A SMALL WAY.....TELL ME...CURIOUS OF YOU.

    Time to stop talking and start doing if you can hear me.  Heck, start protecting the women in India...it goes on, really....create a village.  It can be small, donate, create a garden and donate some animals that provide milk and perhaps in the end, milk.  Or...vegan style....create it?  Tell me how you will take 6 blocks in your community and create a community?  Tell me.  Curious of you, because this is the only way we will survive.  

    We are God's Children.....all Nations, all colors, all of your godly bullshit or not...the atheists are very cool.

    Stop judging and could we start creating.  Please....we can do this...we just have to gather.

    A word spoken....if you can hear.

    In the Light

    Met a very cool brother...I humbly bow.

    hello...we are a different Nation...the beginning of the New Earth...told you that from the beginning Sultan, did I not.  

    I did not come to you any different and you know very much about me.  I am not hiding.  

    I just need you all to listen to me a bit.  

    Stop fighting a battle that cannot be one on the earths terms.  So....let us say...the Lord came down and said...YOU ALL HAVE A JOB IN MY NAME...AND THEN AND ONLY THEN IF YOU CAN CARRY THIS OUT, WILL YOU BE ALLOWED INTO HEAVEN.

    Was a parable in the bible....I know it.  How do I know this all?  Curious of it all.

    WELL, THE TASK IS.......

    CREATE HEAVEN......LET'S DO IT IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, GOD, POSITIVE ENERGY, THE BIG BANG, HAS MANY NAMES RIGHT...99 IN THE QUR'AN ALONE AND  then there is passage in the bible....
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parable_of_the_Lost_Sheep



      SO......WANT TO JUMP DOWN A RABBIT HOLE WITH ME....AND OUT OF SOMETHING SO HORRIBLE....CREATE...MY ABBA........

    ABBA....WHAT DOES MY ABBA LOOK LIKE TO YOU?  NOT OF WORDS....HE WAS OF SONG AND POETRY INITIALLY...ORAL TRANSLATIONS......do you not get any of this....this is about word of mouth...business transactions, not of the web crap....and please...google...piece of shit, facebook, piece of shit.  Tis about joining word of mouth hands.  We do ...not need to be all over the flipping internet.  THOUGH I AM

    However, if you know anyone who wants to start with community, Buddhist Economics...then I have a woman, I would love to bring up in the US, in the name of the Lord I know.  Small investment.  We could be global, but not like it looks now. Ahhhh....too sinful in my eyes.  

    Her name is Amber, well not my daughter...a woman who could speak of the US immigration bullshit.  

    I just need a little bit of money, and a vocal voice.  Schumacher.com....Buddhist economy.  

    Could we please start a new, instead of wasting time to just talk.  Talking ain't going to get nothing done.  However I need a bit of Help.

    I did not ask for this job...just a woman...with dog...a hippy, cool...just came to speak of who created me and then one day...took over my life and changed it. 

    What for, I ask...well, best I can say...it is all too corrupt and it is time to move on.  

    So, could we join hands....the Energy of my Abba...and start to change the world and really, things in the US are just a mess as they are everywhere, almost.  

    So, I am just calling out.  I am not interested in talking about religions, or who is right or wrong.  Waste of time.  I am looking for people who can help me create...something so different.  

    It Can Be Done....it is called of buying it a different Energy Source...and guess what...that Energy is Free.  No hooks, no nothing, come ugly, come sinful, come lost, come hopeless, come arrogant...but take a step down, it goes on.....

    We are the Master's Hand...

    Come and Join Us...we are just a vision...we would like to become an Enterprise.

    The Master's Hand
