‫الرحيم‬ ‫الرحمن‬ ‫هللا‬ ‫بسم‬ Chapter Two The Created Light (Al’Nur / Infinity): We Live To Die And We Die To Live! It is now 1992 A.D. as I write this sentence, and it has been ten years since the most treasured experience of my life, which was the admittance to or the exaltation in the highest level of Allah’s creation: The seventh heaven, al-Nur (the Light), or the Blissful spiritual paradise. When I speak of this light, it is not of the low-level mechanical lights (car, house, train, plane, and/or satellites). Nor do I speak of the galactic lights (planetary, lunar, and/or solar lights). These are all artificial lights of limited existence incomparable with al’Nur (the Light) of Allah’s first created being. So, what does Allah say about creation? “Wonderful Originator of the heavens and the earth! And when He decrees an affair, He says to it only, Be ( Kun = ‫كﻦ‬ ), and it is” (Holy Qur’an 2:117). Therefore, to understand the purpose of al-Nur, we must first have some idea of the qualities of its existence, the beings that extend out from it, and the beings that are attracted to its Nur (Light / Infinite), for the Nur is Allah’s first creation of all life, things, and existence, in that which is also known as the Infinite in the English Language. When I think and speak of Allah, it is imperative that we understand that He is the Unperceivable, whose existence is everywhere, and all that does exist is evidence of His Being. But to understand this, we must know that Allah’s manifestation is the ever-extending existence that builds as it destroys and continuously destroys while it builds in the harmonious evolution of creation. Allah created the Nur so that it would be the light of guidance for the truthful, who have love, fear, remembrance, and obedience (Zikr) for Him (Allah), who seek to do His Will by the criterion of revealed revelations, and who fulfill their promise and perform their duties to Allah. As life is given and taken in stages, life will always exist on certain levels and degrees due to the twenty-one stages of heavens or behaviors. However, Al-Nur is the Most High of Allah’s creations which we shall learn as we move along in the book of Humanity’s Last Hope for Union and Peace. Now, what does Allah say about His light and created existence? “Allah is the Light of the heavens and earth. A likeness of His light is as a pillar on which is a lamp--the lamp in a glass, the glass is as it were a brightly shining star—lit from a blessed olive tree neither eastern nor western, the oil whereof gives light, though fire touch it not—light upon light. Allah guides to His light whom He pleases. And Allah sets forth parables for men, and Allah is Knower of all things“ (Holy Qur’an 24:35). When Allah decrees an affair, He says to it only, Be ( Kun = ‫كﻦ‬ ), and it is. And this is all Allah expressed of his infinity to bring His first and most treasured existence al’Nur into being. Al-Nur is the guide and light in angels, jinns, and genekind (beastman, mankind, human, and man). For the Nur (Bliss) is the seventh heaven and the highest of all creation—the place of Blissfulness for righteous souls of the universe and the smokeless fire for the souls who suffer perdition by their own hands. There are twenty-one stages of behaviors, as we have seen in our “AL’JIHAD”– by, Imam Mahdi . © ® ™ : Of 842 Pages Is 25
