Spirituality reduced into intellectual masturbation of new age and other rebukes by the luminous ones

Last night as I was half awake and half sleep, I had an amazing vision.

I saw a gathering of truly luminous beings. No, I'm not talking about angels having wings, but only amazing human beings.

Standing under the shades of the great tree (sidratal muntaha) at seventh heaven, at the edge of the furthest boundary, beyond which can not be known by mind or intellect, the luminous ones spoke one by one.

There were the venerable:

and Ahmad.

And I heard how they rebuked me - us - this humanity.

First spoke Krishna. He rebuked on how we have destroyed the sanctity of love, how we have polluted the most sacred energy there ever is. And in his soft and loving voice I heard how he was specially hurt because of our turning women into object of lust in the name of love. Tears rolled down his cheeks, because, he said to him every woman on earth is a Radha and how could we not see the purity within women and the preciousness of who they are!

I had no answer, for his words felt true in every sense.

Then spoke Abraham. He rebuked me, us, all of humanity for failing to see the One and not holding on to unity. He was particularly saddened to see that instead of coming towards unity, humanity, with all this knowledge and apparent progress, is going the other opposite of more and more separation and discord.

I was again silent, for he indeed described our sorry but true state.

Then appeared Buddha. Compassion was raining in abundance as he appeared against the indescribable color of the seventh heaven's sky. There was sadness too in his eyes. Buddha rebuked me, us, this humanity how we have forgotten how to be a human being. As if pain was surging in his body when he spoke on how humanity manufacture waves after waves of suffering which simply would not be there if we could use our knowledge and turn them into wisdom. How mindlessly we are accumulating knowledge and information with no application of wisdom. He rebuked us for becoming a giant donkey with loads of books upon its back, moaning and growling in distress and pain.

I had nothing to say, ashamed I was. I could see the truth in every words he spoke.

Then spoke Moses. He rebuked how human civilization has disvalued divine law and replaced it with man made law which are unwise and capricious. He was particularly angry as he spoke, because humanity has failed terribly in upholding justice, and I felt as if terribly hot wind was blowing from somewhere.

I could say nothing and a strange sadness also touched me thinking about the cry of the children of Adam and Eve for justice. I remembered what the wise warned, "there can be no peace without justice and no justice without mercy and no mercy without love and no love without freedom."

Then appeared Jesus, the Spirit of God. Oh how beautiful he looked!

As I was gazing at his beauteous face, it turned into a fierce and intense one. He rebuked me, us, the entire humanity for the practice of hypocrisy in almost all of our state of being and state of doing. He mentioned how spirituality has been reduced into intellectual masturbation of new age and devoid of pure sincerity that it calls for. He was particularly angry at our miserable state of forgetfulness about our origin and about our final destiny in the Kingdom of God. 'In my Father's Kingdom, there is no place for hypocrites and they shall experience what they only deserve' was his last warning.

I trembled silently and could look no more at his blazing eyes.

Finally came the final one, the Seal himself, Muhammad Mustafa. Ahmad as he is known in the celestial realm.

I was in awe at his luminous presence that emanated light upon light upon light. Venerable Muhammad thus spoke: When I was raised up from the earthly life, the lowest of the low were the mushriks, those who forgot about One God and instead of seeing the One, saw many; created many idols and worshiped them in ignorance. They were polytheist who worshiped false gods and I destroyed the false idols at the Kaba of Mecca and I purified their heart's Kaba as well from their polytheism. But now humanity has become addicted to self-worship, their idols are many "i"s they have made within themselves and it will be very hard for them to recognize or destroy those idols occupied within themselves for they are completely oblivious to them.

Where are those surrendered souls that I so intensely long for? I look among millions and billions of human souls whom I may include in my ummah, but alas! where are they?

Like six facets of a priceless diamond they appeared to me, to all of humanity, then merging mystically and as one body speaks the message of the One, the only One.

~ note from author: this is an imaginary tale, not a dream of any sort

And for every nation is a messenger.
~ Message of the Quran 10:47

And God has certainly sent into every nation a messenger, [saying]: 'Worship God and avoid falsehood and false deities. ~ 16:36

"And We have certainly sent messengers before you [O Muhammad]. Among them are those [whose narration] We have related to you, and among them are those [whose narration] We have not related to you. All messenger brought Sign with the will of God. So when the command of God comes, it will be concluded [i.e., judged] in truth, and those who cover up truth will thereupon lose [all]." ~ 40:78

For a person of faith, no discrimination are to be made among any of the Divine Messengers who were sent by God to humanity in order to deliver inspired Messages.  
~ 2:185
