Maulana Sheikh NazimThe need of a Divine Mirror to see oneself


Do you think that we came from the Divine Presence with our whole originality, our whole personality? Never. We are like one ray of the sun. We are, in our originality, in reality, still in the Divine Presence. Not moving, out of time and space there is no movement. We are continuously worshipping, always in the Divine Presence for service. Here, in this life, there is only one ray from that timeless ‘sun’ for us. We are here for a little time only.

Prophets have come to us to open that door through which we can look at our realities in the Divine Presence. Step by step, if you are following in their footsteps, it will open for you to look at yourself, to know yourself. We don’t know ourselves; we need a Divine Mirror to look in to see ourselves. You are asking why we come to this life. It is to be witnesses of ourselves. We have been sent to attain perfection, to look at ourselves and say: “We are something also.” I cannot give more than this description until you taste it for yourself. When you taste, you will know. May Allah grant us to taste... Bi hurmati’l Habib... Fatiha.
