Part 1: The Holy Imam and the Holy Qur'an are Divine Treasures

In the first post of this series, I listed spiritual and luminous attributes of Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam. In this post, let us learn why are the Holy Imam and the Holy Qur'an Divine Treasures.

1. Definition of Treasures:
"Treasure, which in the Qur'anic language is called kanz (pl. kunuz) or khizanah (pl. khaza'in), is the name of the place where huge heaps of current coins and also gold, silver, jewels, or precious metals of a king or a government are stored and, in the context of modern times, the wealth of rich is also deposited there. Such a place is called the royal or government treasury or bank.
Contrary to this, the Divine treasure is in the form of a book, namely, the Noble Qur'an. It is also in the form of a speaking Light. The things which are in these Divine treasures are immensely more precious than heaps of gold and precious stones. It is certainly a fact and there is not the slightest doubt that the Divine treasures are there and in which there are religious and spiritual wealth or coins of their own kind. By these religious and spiritual coins are meant those realities and recognitions which are related to the obedience to and the recognition of the Imam of the time, salawatu'llahi 'alayhi, then there are the heavenly gold and silver, by which are meant knowledge and wisdom and then rubies and pearls, by which are meant the secrets of recognition of God (ma'rifat)."
(Source: Sweet Smelling, p. 33)
2. Law of Treasures:
"Reflect on verse (15:21) carefully: "And there is not a thing but with Us are the treasures of it. And We send it down except according to knowledge (and action)." This Divine law is crystal clear. All things related to intellect, thought, knowledge, recognition (ma'rifat), soul and subtle body, are in the Divine treasures. They are not revealed without reason but are are conditional. They cannot come about in one day, but they come gradually, as is clear in the examples of souls of people, provision, luck, wealth, knowledge, skill, invention, science, etc., all of which come gradually. Since "with Us ('indana)" is meant not in a spatial and geographical sense, but in the sense of honour, therefore, these treasures can be in the Wise Qu'ran and its Divinely appointed Teacher. For, in the external world, these are the two blessed and sacred things which have proximity and closeness of God. One is the perfect Light (5:15) and the other a complete Book (5:15), both of which are revealed by God and they represent the Prophet, may peace be on him and his progeny."
(Source: Sweet Smelling, p. 34)
3. Treasure of Light:
"All the institutions of a state and the fiscal and economic system of a country, are run by the treasury or the bank, so in the same way, the existence of the solar system (the physical universe) depends on the sun. The sun, which is an endless treasure of light and energy, is unsparingly used, without which the material universe cannot exist. This is a bright example of the Imam of the time, whose light is unsparingly spent for the world of religion and the world of humanity, as the treasure of God, although except for the people of ma'rifat, nobody knows this Divine secret."
(Source: Sweet Smelling, p. 35)

Note how Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam describes the relationship between faith and science and reflect how it fits with the above-mentioned ayat (15:21):

"Islam tells us that Allah is eternal and his creation knows no limits in form, in time, or in place; therefore, when our children and grandchildren grow up in an increasing technological society, there is no reason for that type of society to create concerns or questions because Allah's creation is eternal and part of his creation is man's own mind. And in this sense, when man makes technological discoveries, there is no reason to be proud or vain. On the contrary, humility is the correct reaction in front of scientific development, because it is the human mind which is enabled to perceive one addition aspect of Allah's creation. And remember that because that creation is eternal, and it knows no limits in time, Allah may create today, he may create tomorrow, and therefore it is possible that what is not discoverable today may be quite discoverable tomorrow. And in front of that fundamental question our Jamat need not have fear, but it must not become proud or vain, and it must not react to sciences as though it was the human mind that was the master because that is not fact."

Part 2: Teaching of Pir Hasan Kabirdin

The following verse is taken from Pir Hasan Kabirdin's Ginan, Aash puni ham Shah dar aaya:

Eji Shahji hamaaro, Ali vardaata
Aan milo Shah tu(n) aap vasilo
Shahji dekhe Shahku(n) koi koi dekhe
Bi saa(n)iya..
O Brother: My Master is Ali who is the Provider and Protector.
Come and meet the Holy Imam who is your only channel for salvation.
The True Holy Imam sees everybody but very few see the Holy Imam
in His essential nature.
