What is the soul?

Standard

What is the Soul?

The Soul is the divine masculine and feminine energies balanced together 

This means that soul is neutral and genderless

The soul is the manifestation of anything becoz anything to manifest ,it needs to be neutral

This is what happens when we let go of something we want so bad ,we become neutral ,balanced and that thing we want ,its energy becomes neutral to us that’s why we attract it into our lives becoz whether we have that thing or not ,it’s okay with us!!



“Verily, the case of Jesus is as the case of Adam in the sight of Allâh. He fashioned him out of dust, then He said to him,`Be’, and he came to be”


There are only two people in the history of humankind who were created without a marriage ,

Adam and Jesus (peace be upon them)!

For Adam is the One Soul in manifestation ,it means that Adam are both the masculine and the feminine energy inside one body so for “physical” marriage to happen ,the feminine has to be extracted from him and that’s how Eve was created So now a “physical” marriage can happen becoz the one soul needs its polarity whether masculine or feminine for marriage to happen ,Adam and Eve were twin souls!

Adam is the masculine side and Eve the feminine side of the one soul!

In the case of Jesus (peace be upon him) he is also the manifestation of the one soul like Adam were at the time of creation so Jesus can never get married becoz he is already One whole Soul ,he got both the feminine and masculine inside of him!

 Jesus (peace upon him) is the only prophet who was supported by the power of the soul,that’s why he could heal and create life by the permission of God .The One Soul can manifest anything becoz it got the power of the divine ,that energetic balance inside ,the neutral state becoz it’s an order of manifestation from God. 



The soul means instant manifestation of anything ,it’s the order “Be” that God use to create.So the soul is the energetic power of creation.The soul is what manifests energy into matter 

That’s how the prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) used to create ,he used the power of the soul becoz he was supported by that power since his magical birth.


“And (remember) her who guarded her chastity: We breathed into her of Our spirit, and We made her and her son a sign for all peoples.”


“We gave Jesus the son of Mary Clear (Signs) and strengthened him with the holy spirit”


 “Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) a messenger of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His messengers.”


So the prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) was the word “Be” that God use to create ,the Soul,the order.


Prophet jesus (peace be upon him) was the manifestation of the one soul in a human body,that’s why he had the gifts of creation ,manifestation and healing.

So it’s the power of the soul that God supported him with ,”The power of creation and instant manifestation”


(And when he came as a Messenger to the children of Israel, he said,) “I have come to you with a clear Sign from your Lord: in your very presence, I make the likeness of a bird out of clay and breathe into it and it becomes, by God’s Command, a bird. I heal those born blind and the lepers and I bring to life the dead by God’s Command: I inform you of what you eat and what you store up in your houses. Surely there is a great Sign for you in all this, if you have a mind to believe. 45 And I have come to confirm those teachings of the Guidance of the Torah which are intact in my time. 46 Lo! I have come with a clear Sign from your Lord; 47 so fear God and obey me. Indeed God is my Lord, and also your Lord; therefore worship Him alone: that is the straight way.”48 Quran 3:49-51 



God says in the Qur’an “Verily, when He intends a thing, His Command is, “be”, and it is!”


The soul is an order from God ,it means the manifestation of everything that God want it to happen!

When God wants something to “Be” ,it comes into “being” 

That being,, instant manifestation and order is the Soul.

So for anything to Go from being an energy into physical being ,It needs Soul “balance of masculine and feminine energies which lead to Manifestation” 

The breath of soul that God gave us Adam (peace be upon him) is What makes us alive ,manifesting physically as humans while in fact we are souls .That manifestation into the physical is becoz we have a Soul inside of us .so when we die ,the soul leaves the body becoz it is what keeps us alive!


That’s what I reached to conclusion after searching for what the word “Soul” means

It could mean more than that or it could mean something completely different but as a human I’m trying my best to understand the secrets of this world ,,there are many secrets we still don’t know ,God only knows best 🙂


Soul contracts (Destiny Vs free will)

Standard

IMG_0721

Before we came here to Earth ,as souls we made soul contracts with many souls to help us learn something ,achieve a certain mission so we can evolve as souls and expand the universe and help all humanity 

So if we choose everything before we come here to Earth ,what about free will?

Free will is part of the contract so you can break the soul contract without even knowing because once you came here to Earth ,you forget all about those soul contracts you made and you are free to choose

I believe that the soul contract is what we call “Destiny” ,meaning that the whole universe moves to help you get to those soul contracts you made and of course with the help of other souls but once you are at the crossroads,so to speak ,that’s when free will comes into play and you have to make the choice whether to fulfill the commitment you once made before you were born or break the contract and move on 

Even as souls we had the free will to make whatever choices we want.we had the free will to choose our parents ,our circumstances,our spouses ,life challenges and lessons we need to learn to evolve as souls 

Soul contracts explain why bad things happen to good people and vice versa ,why some children suffer from diseases ,disabilities and trauma 

It was all pre-planned,pre-destined and their choice and it all serves a greater purpose which is the evolution of your own soul and the expansion of the whole universe

That’s why you can change your life whenever you want ,you can change your life path and choose something else becoz you are not destined to be poor or failure or anything else even if you chose those things before you were born!

Because again the free will 🙂

So let’s say you choose to be poor before you can came here to Earth ,you may wonder why would anyone choose that?!

Because from a soul perspective ,you saw that challenge of being poor as a challenge that could motivate you to achieve something or teach you a valuable lesson 

And you can change that destiny once you came here on Earth

soul contracts was mentioned in Qur’an when God made us all as souls witness that Allah is the only and one God ,That is the most important soul contract ever ,the one we made with God

But not all people believe in God ,so it means it is possible to break the soul contract and choose not to believe by the virtue of the free will

That’s why you should believe in both Destiny and free will

Destiny teaches you valuable lessons

Free will gives you the freedom to create your own reality


Epiphany

Standard
 

I thought for Years that God created us and left us alone in this life ,struggling and trying so hard to make it work while in fact ,God has always been there all the time ,watching over us ,giving us signs ,giving us unlimited chances and opportunities to create the life we want ,a life of abundance but usually we miss out on those chances 

God always turned our misfortunes into a great opportunities for growth and healing 

Turning our losses into gains
Turning our problems and troubles into blessings in disguise
Giving us what we want when we least expect it
Making us happy after we give up and lose hope that our life will ever gonna change 
God gave us feelings to tell if we are truly aligned with what we want or not
God gave us imagination,intuition ,inner voice ,thoughts and feelings ,all are tools of creation 
God gave us Everything ,we got all the tools we need ,all the guidance and all the resources to create whatever we want but at the same time we complain all the time of lack and about how hard life is and that’s we get becoz we don’t use what we have ,we  are blind to what we already got or refuse to see it as Enough ,we are so ungrateful.I always heard it before ,start from where you are and I didn’t understand what that meant then but Now I do 
It means you got to use every talent you have ,every thing you can give to others and use it for a greater cause 
Becoz God gonna use your life anyways based on your choices ,whether it’s good or a bad life, for a greater cause that serves all humanity and isn’t that brilliant? 
God forgive us  after we have sinned and accept us ,take us back and guide us into the right path ,God love us in many ways we can’t even begin to imagine ,I really Love You God more than anything or anyone in this world 🙂

Just Pray and believe :)

Sahih International

Originator of the heavens and the earth. When He decrees a matter, He only says to it, “Be,” and it is.

This verse from the Holy Qu’ran indicates really the power of Allah (God) .When Allah want anything to happen ,He just say to it “Be and it will come into being” just Like that ,that the power that created the heavens and the earth subhanAllah 
so when we pray to Allah ,we should be sure and certain that God is capable of anything becoz what may seem impossible to us isn’t the same for God.
it’s so easy for God to make it happen if we just believe and put our whole trust in Him,then Impossible is nothing and for sure Everything is possible 🙂 

From Heaven to Earth :THE TEST!

Standard

When God created Adam,He also created a partner for him .that’s when comes the creation of “Eve” .she was created from Adam’s Left rib and that explains why men are naturally attracted to women and she is the closest to his heart .
God then told Adam :Go and ur spouse and live in Heaven and Enjoy and eat from whatever u like except from that tree .A certain tree in heaven God warned Adam not to approach!

Then I come to the conclusion that God created Heaven for humans to Live in.We were meant to live in heaven in the first place but also we were meant to live on earth as well for a particular reason.
God created Adam to rule the earth to build it ,to be a “khalifa” on this earth which means “successor” for God on earth .

When Adam failed in his test and followed his desires and what the devil told him to do, He disobeyed God and ate from that tree Although God warned him and told him not to do that .
But despite God’s warning ,he did eat from it!

So God told Adam to go out of heaven with Eve and descend into Earth.So it was Adam’s punishment and mission to live on Earth for a period of time .Then Adam will return to Heaven again (the first place he meant to live in).
But what about us?
here on Earth ,We got the same test that Adam Had :will we obey God and follow his orders becoz He is All-knowing or will we follow the devil and our desires?
it’s our test and it’s up to us to choose
It’s up to us to choose where to go ,whether to heave or Hell becoz Simply God gave us the free will to choose 🙂

Reflections on Ibes (Satan,Devil,Shaytan)

Standard

Ibles(Satan,Lucifier,Devil) or whatever u call him is our Eternal Foe .Duh,that seems so Obvious to you ,doesn’t it? So why do we tend to forget this? We are so caught up in this Life ,we are always busy or convince ourselves we are Busy and the real important facts of Life just pass us by without even Realizing them.
Ibles is our Enemy who at first felt so much superior and arrogant to bow to one of Allah creatures which is YOU .yes he thought he is better than you ,so you may now know why arrogant ppl are more close to the Devils?
so we brought down to this Earth because of Satan we will be forever Enemies and in the Test ,it’s the Eternal Test between Evil and Goodness .Right and Wrong ,kindness and cruelty ,Love and Hatred ,Arrogance and humility, Positive thoughts and Negative ones ,you name it.it’s our battle ,it’s our fight and this is our test ,which side will we choose ? will be on the side of Angels or the Side of Devils .we are Humans beings after all and had that human weakness .we have desires ,ambitions ,dreams ,visions that we chase all our life but Satan is always there he knows our points of weakness and know how to mislead you and make you lose the way .So Satan could be close to you than more you think.He could be that friend of yours who always pretend to be your best friend while he hates you like hell and hide behind a mask and give you bad advices and make you a Loser or bring you down until you become so Devilish like him then only then you became Friends!!
don’t you see it yet? Devils can’t be friends with humans? Don’t you get it yet? Can the fire and Dust blend together? Never !!!Either the Fire burn the Dust or the Dust put off the Fire!!
it just takes a little whisper in your ears to follow his misleading scheme,but here’s the good news You are smarter than this ,you should be always prepared and on alert! You have the Ultimate will power to beat any Evil in this world so how come you can’t beat the weakest suggestion of thought?? How come you forget all this old Hatred for Us human beings and follow such Devils who want nothing else in the world but to see us Doomed ,it’s their Job!!
Devils have nothing Else to do but to mislead you ,it’s their mission in Life to make us Lose both worlds ,this Life and hereafter.
I’m getting Mad at such Devils Right Now,don’t you feel the same feeling that u were being fooled all this time to follow Devils blindly without thinking about it? Without knowing ,is it what you really want or someone is messing up with your head?
It’s Time we give ourselves the honor to use this gift ,you may ask what gift? It’s Your Brain ,Use it for God sake.
follow your Heart ,feelings are there for a reason ,if u don’t feel like doing something wrong,so why do you insist on going against your heart when it tells you not to do this or that? Why don’t you listen to that inner voice inside you that tells you No or tells u to Stop ,believe me it’s never hard as u thought ,it takes just Faith ,will and Determination .choose the side of Angels ,Know your Enemy ,Don’t fall in the Trap and be always prepared .

Why do people have to leave each other?

Standard

Why Do People Have to Leave Each Other? by Yasmin Mogahed

When I was 17 years old, I had a dream. I dreamt that I was sitting inside a masjid and a little girl walked up to ask me a question. She asked me: “Why do people have to leave each other?” The question was a personal one, but it seemed clear to me why the question was chosen for me.

I was one to get attached.

Ever since I was a child, this temperament was clear. While other children in preschool could easily recover once their parents left, I could not. My tears, once set in motion, did not stop easily. As I grew up, I learned to become attached to everything around me. From the time I was in first grade, I needed a best friend. As I got older, any fall-out with a friend shattered me. I couldn’t let go of anything. People, places, events, photographs, moments—even outcomes became objects of strong attachment. If things didn’t work out the way I wanted or imagined they should, I was devastated. And disappointment for me wasn’t an ordinary emotion. It was catastrophic. Once let down, I never fully recovered. I could never forget, and the break never mended. Like a glass vase that you place on the edge of a table, once broken, the pieces never quite fit again.

But the problem wasn’t with the vase. Or even that the vases kept breaking. The problem was that I kept putting them on the edge of tables. Through my attachments, I was dependent on my relationships to fulfill my needs. I allowed those relationships to define my happiness or my sadness, my fulfillment or my emptiness, my security, and even my self-worth. And so, like the vase placed where it will inevitably fall, through those dependencies I set myself up for disappointment. I set myself up to be broken. And that’s exactly what I found: one disappointment, one break after another.

But the people who broke me were not to blame any more than gravity can be blamed for breaking the vase. We can’t blame the laws of physics when a twig snaps because we leaned on it for support. The twig was never created to carry us.

Our weight was only meant to be carried by God. We are told in the Quran: “…whoever rejects evil and believes in God hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And God hears and knows all things.” (Qur’an 2: 256)

There is a crucial lesson in this verse: that there is only one handhold that never breaks. There is only one place where we can lay our dependencies. There is only one relationship that should define our self-worth and only one source from which to seek our ultimate happiness, fulfillment, and security. That place is God.

But this world is all about seeking those things everywhere else. Some of us seek it in our careers, some seek it in wealth, some in status. Some, like me, seek it in our relationships. In her book, Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert describes her own quest for happiness. She describes moving in and out of relationships, and even traveling the globe in search of this fulfillment. She seeks that fulfillment—unsuccessfully—in her relationships, in meditation, even in food.

And that’s exactly where I spent much of my own life: seeking a way to fill my inner void. So it was no wonder that the little girl in my dream asked me this question. It was a question about loss, about disappointment. It was a question about being let down. A question about seeking something and coming back empty handed. It was about what happens when you try to dig in concrete with your bare hands: not only do you come back with nothing—you break your fingers in the process. And I learned this not by reading it, not by hearing it from a wise sage. I learned it by trying it again, and again, and again.

And so, the little girl’s question was essentially my own question…being asked to myself.

Ultimately, the question was about the nature of the dunya as a place of fleeting moments and temporary attachments. As a place where people are with you today, and leave or die tomorrow. But this reality hurts our very being because it goes against our nature. We, as humans, are made to seek, love, and strive for what is perfect and what is permanent. We are made to seek what’s eternal. We seek this because we were not made for this life. Our first and true home was Paradise: a land that is both perfect and eternal. So the yearning for that type of life is a part of our being. The problem is that we try to find that here. And so we create ageless creams and cosmetic surgery in a desperate attempt to hold on—in an attempt to mold this world into what it is not, and will never be.

And that’s why if we live in dunya with our hearts, it breaks us. That’s why this dunya hurts. It is because the definition of dunya, as something temporary and imperfect, goes against everything we are made to yearn for. Allah put a yearning in us that can only be fulfilled by what is eternal and perfect. By trying to find fulfillment in what is fleeting, we are running after a hologram…a mirage. We are digging into concrete with our bare hands. Seeking to turn what is by its very nature temporary into something eternal is like trying to extract from fire, water.  You just get burned. Only when we stop putting our hopes in dunya, only when we stop trying to make the dunya into what it is not—and was never meant to be (jannah)—will this life finally stop breaking our hearts.

We must also realize that nothing happens without a purpose. Nothing. Not even broken hearts. Not even pain. That broken heart and that pain are lessons and signs for us. They are warnings that something is wrong. They are warnings that we need to make a change. Just like the pain of being burned is what warns us to remove our hand from the fire, emotional pain warns us that we need to make an internal change. That we need to detach. Pain is a form of forced detachment. Like the loved one who hurts you again and again and again, the moredunya hurts us, the more we inevitably detach from it. The more we inevitably stop loving it.

And pain is a pointer to our attachments. That which makes us cry, that which causes us most pain is where our false attachments lie. And it is those things which we are attached to as we should only be attached to Allah which become barriers on our path to God. But the pain itself is what makes the false attachment evident. The pain creates a condition in our life that we seek to change, and if there is anything about our condition that we don’t like, there is a divine formula to change it. God says: “Verily never will God change the condition of a people until they change what is within themselves.” (Qur’an, 13:11)

After years of falling into the same pattern of disappointments and heartbreak, I finally began to realize something profound. I had always thought that love of dunya meant being attached to material things. And I was not attached to material things. I was attached to people. I was attached to moments. I was attached to emotions. So I thought that the love of dunya just did not apply to me. What I didn’t realize was that people, moments, emotions are all a part ofdunya. What I didn’t realize is that all the pain I had experienced in life was due to one thing, and one thing only: love of dunya.

As soon as I began to have that realization, a veil was lifted from my eyes. I started to see what my problem was. I was expecting this life to be what it is not, and was never meant to be: perfect. And being the idealist that I am, I was struggling with every cell in my body to make it so. It had to be perfect. And I would not stop until it was. I gave my blood, sweat, and tears to this endeavor: making the dunya into jannah. This meant expecting people around me to be perfect. Expecting my relationships to be perfect. Expecting so much from those around me and from this life. Expectations. Expectations. Expectations. And if there is one recipe for unhappiness it is that: expectations. But herein lay my fatal mistake. My mistake was not in having expectations; as humans, we should never lose hope. The problem was in *where* I was placing those expectations and that hope. At the end of the day, my hope and expectations were not being placed in God. My hope and expectations were in people, relationships, means. Ultimately, my hope was in this dunya rather than Allah.

And so I came to realize a very deep Truth. An ayah began to cross my mind. It was an ayah I had heard before, but for the first time I realized that it was actually describing me:  “Those who rest not their hope on their meeting with Us, but are pleased and satisfied with the life of the present, and those who heed not Our Signs.” (Qur’an, 10:7)

By thinking that I can have everything here, my hope was not in my meeting with God. My hope was in dunya. But what does it mean to place your hope in dunya? How can this be avoided? It means when you have friends, don’t expect your friends to fill your emptiness. When you get married, don’t expect your spouse to fulfill your every need. When you’re an activist, don’t put your hope in the results. When you’re in trouble don’t depend on yourself. Don’t depend on people. Depend on God.

Seek the help of people—but realize that it is not the people (or even your own self) that can save you. Only Allah can do these things. The people are only tools, a means used by God. But they are not the source of help, aid, or salvation of any kind. Only God is. The people cannot even create the wing of a fly (22:73).  And so, even while you interact with people externally, turn your heart towards God. Face Him alone, as Prophet Ibrahim (as) said so beautifully: “For me, I have set my face, firmly and truly, towards Him Who created the heavens and the earth, and never shall I give partners to Allah.” (Qur’an, 6:79)

But how does Prophet Ibrahim (as) describe his journey to that point? He studies the moon, the sun and the stars and realizes that they are not perfect. They set.

They let us down.

So Prophet Ibrahim (as) was thereby led to face Allah alone. Like him, we need to put our full hope, trust, and dependency on God. And God alone. And if we do that, we will learn what it means to finally find peace and stability of heart. Only then will the roller coaster that once defined our lives finally come to an end. That is because if our inner state is dependent on something that is by definition inconstant, that inner state will also be inconstant. If our inner state is dependent on something changing and temporary, that inner state will be in a constant state of instability, agitation, and unrest. This means that one moment we’re happy, but as soon as that which our happiness depended upon changes, our happiness also changes. And we become sad. We remain always swinging from one extreme to another and not realizing why.

We experience this emotional roller coaster because we can never find stability and lasting peace until our attachment and dependency is on what is stable and lasting. How can we hope to find constancy if what we hold on to is inconstant and perishing? In the statement of Abu Bakr is a deep illustration of this truth. After the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ died, the people went into shock and could not handle the news. But although no one loved the Prophet ﷺ like Abu Bakr, Abu Bakr understood well the only place where one’s dependency should lie. He said: “If you worshipped Muhammad, know that Muhammad is dead. But if you worshipped Allah, know that Allah never dies.”

To attain that state, don’t let your source of fulfillment be anything other than your relationship with God. Don’t let your definition of success, failure, or self-worth be anything other than your position with Him (Qur’an, 49:13). And if you do this, you become unbreakable, because your handhold is unbreakable. You become unconquerable, because your supporter can never be conquered. And you will never become empty, because your source of fulfillment is unending and never diminishes.

Looking back at the dream I had when I was 17, I wonder if that little girl was me. I wonder this because the answer I gave her was a lesson I would need to spend the next painful years of my life learning. My answer to her question of why people have to leave each other was: “because this life isn’t perfect; for if it was, what would the next be called?”
