Towards the Inner Vision of the Truth


"O mankind! Now hath a proof from your Lord come unto you, and We have sent down unto you a clear light." — Holy Qur'an 4:175


Idd-e-Milad un Nabi:
A Time to Reflect on the Status of the Holy prophet Muhammad (s.a.s.)

Ya Ali Madad. On the auspicious occasion of our Holy Prophet's birthday commemoration, let us first read the following tawil which shows the lofty spiritual and luminous status of the Holy Prophet and his enduring legacy which is benefitting Muslims and humanity at large.

Ta'wil of word 'Mi'raj' (The Spiritual Ascension of the Light of Prophets):

"An important part of the verse under discussion is: "And He sent down with them the Book with the truth." These meaningful words reveal amazing principal wisdom, such as:

  1. All heavenly Books are one in origin and their magnificent compendium is called "the Book = al-kitab" (i.e. the Qur'an).
  2. Like the Books, all the lights of the Prophets too, are one light, which is collectively called "Muhammadan Light (nur-i Muhammadi)".
  3. The exalted place of the higher world from where their light was revealed, also revealed the Book together with their light.
  4. If the original Book is one, their da'wat-i haqq (the invitation to the truth), as well as their religion is one, which is Islam, and which is the religion of the holy Prophet Muhammad (s.a.s.)"
