With the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Exclusively Compassionate
I Commence to Read the Signs of Mutual Disillusion
All that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth glorifies the Divine Being. To Him belongs the sovereignty and all true praise. And He is over all things Powerful.
It is He Who created you. And among of you are those who cover up (truth) and among you are those who faithful (to truth). And the Divine Being sees all that you do.
He created the heavens and the earth with an eternal purpose and to suit the requirements of truth and wisdom. And He fashioned you and made your forms beautiful, and to Him is the ultimate Homecoming.
He knows everything in the heavens and the earth and He knows what you conceal and what you reveal. Allah knows the innermost thoughts of the hearts.
(Disbelievers!) Has not the news of those who disbelieved in the past reached you? They tasted the evil consequences of their conduct and intense suffering awaits them.
That was because their messengers kept coming to them with Clear Signs and they said out of ignorant-arrogance, "Shall mortals be our guides?" And they covered up (truth) and turned away. Thereupon Allah showed them that He had no need of them. And Allah is Self-Sufficient above all needs, and Worthy of Praise (In His own right).
Those who cover up (truth) claim they will not be raised (from the dead). Say, 'No doubt, by my Lord, you shall surely be raised and then you shall be told all that you have done (in life). And that is easy for the Divine Authority.
Therefore believe faithfully in Allah and His Messenger and the Light (the Qur'an) which We have revealed, and Allah is Well-Aware of all that you do.
Beware of the Day when He shall gather you together for the Day of Gathering. That will be the Day of Mutual Disillusion (Yowmut-Taghabun). Those who faithfully believe in Allah and act to suit the requirement of it (the true Faith), will be acquitted of their evil deeds. He will admit them to the Gardens served with running streams. They will abide therein forever and ever. That is the supreme achievement!
But those who cover up (truth) and deny Our Signs, they are the Companions of the Fire, wherein they shall abide for an unbelievably long time. What an evil resort it is!
No affliction befalls, but from within the framework of Divine Matrix. And who faithfully believe, He guides his heart, and Allah knows all things.
And obey Allah and obey the Messenger. For if you turn your backs (paying no heed) then (bear in mind that) Our Messenger is responsible only for clear transmission and communication (of the Messages).
Allah, there is no other, cannot be and will never be one worthy of worship but He. So let the faithful believers put their trust in Allah.
O you who faithfully believe! Truly among your spouses and children are enemies to you, so beware of them. And if you pardon and overlook and forgive (them), you will find that surely Allah is Ever Forgiving, Exclusively Compassionate.
Verily, your possessions and your children are a means to reveal your hidden attributes. As for Allah there awaits an immense reward with Him.
Therefore do your duty towards Allah to the best of your ability, and listen to Him and obey Him, and go on spending in (His causes). (If you do so) it will be the best for your own selves, and whoever is free from the greed of his own self, they shall be really successful in every way.
If you set apart a handsome portion of your wealth for Allah (for the cause of Truth), He will multiply it for you and will protect you (against your lapses). And Allah is Most Appreciating, All-Forbearing.
Knower of the Unseen and the Seen, He is the Al-Mighty, the All-Wise.
~ Signs from the Chapter titled Mutual Disillusion, appearing at 64th Chapter of the Final Testament, al-Quran which contains 18 verses in total
Can you identify if in this Chapter Allah ever speaks about the spiritual heart of human being, the innermost organ of spiritual perception? If yes, how many times?
He knows everything
in the heavens and the earth
mā tusirruna wamā tuʿ'linuna
and He knows
what is within you and what you reveal
wa Allahu 'aleemun
Allah is All-Knowing of what
is in in the breasts. (64:4)
Within man is the entire reality folded. At first the example of the heaven and earth is given, attention is drawn to the heavenly and the terrestrial dimensions of the visible world and we are communicated that the knowledge of the entire spectrum is within the grasp of God. He knows everything in the heavens and earth. What is concealed within of Man and what is made manifest are like reflection of the realities of cosmos and earth. Cosmic space representing vast infinite realm, so is what is within Man, and earth is what made manifest as the prime stage of leela of God, thus the action of man is likened with earth.
The size of earth as compared to the cosmic space is so tiny, so is what man can do through his outward action only, as compared to what power lies within, what is possible through him - that which is kept hidden as mysteries within Man. In the language of the Quran, such portal of mysteries within Man is sudur (breast), his qalb (heart).
And the verse seals with the meditation seed that calls out as 'Know O Humanity, Here is a Gnosis for you about the Transcending Absolute that He is the Knower of what is within You, so be careful what you hold within.'
