Polishing the Diamond
The mind must recognise its pain to overcome all its disappointments for the inner stages to open the doors to insight.
See your own confusions more clearly, then recognise them as your obstacles – As you do, they will part veils and all falsehoods will become amplified. From the moment you opened your eyes into the spiritual world, a ladder of knowledge was placed before you to escape your human hues. The wound is where the light enters – and since all your wounds are experienced in the mind that’s where the power keeps. Every pain is a messenger to you, bringing information of the stages you must navigate your path through. Find the source of the pain and pass it – Then watch how the answers open doors paving a whole new way of life for you. It is in polishing of your reasoning that awareness is raised. Yes, it is true that every rub will leave you agitated – but you were created to slip comfortably into this shoe.
Polishing the diamond takes place on the heavenly tracts because that’s where the spirit resides.
The 7 levels are made up of many spiritual states that will lead you to the heavens and the Throne of God Almighty. The path must include “the Sacred Laws and the Open way”, that will bring to the seeker Divine Knowledge, Reality, and Spiritual Realities. The 7 tracts being Verbal Surrender, Faith in His design, Sanctifying virtue, Knowledge of Certainty, Eye of Certainty, Truth of Certainty &; The Unconditional Surrender or complete submission. This means your will does not exist, but rather as He instructs you, His decisions must be carried out.
Seven Heavenly Tracts
– There is no god but He: That is the witness of Allah, His angels, and those
endued with knowledge, standing firm on justice.
– There is no god but He, the Exalted in Power, the Wise. So if they dispute with
– “I have submitted My whole self to Allah and so have those who follow me.” And
say to the People of the Book and to those who are unlearned:
– “Do you also submit yourselves”If they do, they are in right guidance,
– but if they turn back, your duty is only to convey the Message; and in Allah’s sight
are all His servants. 3:18-20
– Behold! Allah took the covenant of the prophets, saying: “I give you a Book and Wisdom;
– Then comes to you a messenger, confirming what is with you; do you believe in him and render him help.”
– Allah said: “;Do you agree, and take this my Covenant as binding on you?”; They said: “;We agree.” He said: “Then bear witness, and I am with you among the witnesses.”
– If any turn back after this, they are perverted transgressors.
Say: “We believe in Allah, and in what was revealed to Abraham, Ismail, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and in the Books given to Moses, Jesus, and the prophets, from their Lord: We make no distinction between one and another among them, and to Allah do we bow our will in Islam.” If anyone desires a religion other than submission to Allah, never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter He will be in the ranks of those
who have lost all spiritual good. 31:81-86
O you who believe! Fear Allah as He should be feared, and die not except in a state of. And hold fast, all together, by the rope which Allah stretches out for you, and be not divided among yourselves; and remember
with gratitude Allah’s favour on you; for you were enemies and He joined your hearts in love, so that by His Grace, you became brethren; and you were on the brink of the pit of Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus does Allah make His Signs clear to you: That you may be guided!
Let there arise out of you a band of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining what is right, and forbidding what is wrong: They are the ones to attain felicity.
Be not like those who are divided amongst themselves and fall into disputations after receiving Clear Signs: For them is a dreadful penalty –
Who can be better in religion than one who submits his whole self to Allah, does good and follows the way of Abraham the true in Faith? For Allah did take Abraham for a friend. 4:124-126
It is not righteousness that you turn your faces Towards east or West; but it is righteousness- to believe in Allah and the Last Day, and the Angels, and the Book, and the Messengers; to spend of your substance, out of
love for Him, for your kin, for orphans, for the needy, for the wayfarer, for those who ask, and for the ransom of slaves; to be steadfast in prayer, and practice regular charity; to fulfill the contracts which you have
made; and to be firm and patient, in pain or suffering and adversity, and throughout all periods of panic. Such are the people of truth, the Allah-fearing. 2:177
The Messenger believes in what has been revealed to him from his Lord, as do the men of faith. Each one of them believes in Allah, His angels, His books, and His messengers. “We make no distinction they say
between one and another of His messengers.” And they say: “We hear, and
we obey: We seek Your forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the end of all
Send not away those who call on their Lord Morning and evening, seeking His face. In naught are you accountable for them, and in naught are they accountable for you, that you should turn them away, and thus be one of the unjust. Thus did We try some of them by comparison with others, that they should say: “Is it
these then that Allah has favoured from amongst us?” Does not Allah know best those who are grateful? 6:52–53
Thus did We try some of them by comparison with others, that they should say: “Is it these then that Allah has favoured from amongst us?” Does not Allah know best those who are grateful? 6:52–53
For those who respond to their Lord, are all good things. But those who respond not to Him,- Even if they had all that is in the heavens and on earth, and as much more, in vain would they offer it for ransom. For them will the reckoning be terrible: their abode will be Hell – what a bed of misery!
Is then one who does know that that which has been revealed unto you from your Lord is the Truth, like one who is blind? It is those who are endued with understanding that receive admonition – Those who fulfill the covenant of Allah and fail not in their plighted word; Those who join together those things which Allah has commanded to be joined, hold their Lord in awe, and fear the terrible reckoning; Those who patiently persevere, seeking the face of their Lord; Establish regular prayers; spend, out of the gifts We have bestowed for their sustenance, secretly and openly; and turn off Evil with good: for such there is the final attainment of the eternal home…’ 13:18-22
But those who break the Covenant of Allah, after having plighted their word thereto, and cut asunder those things which Allah has commanded to be joined, and work mischief in the land;- on them is the curse; for them is the terrible home! 13:18–25
‘’…And if the messenger were to invent any sayings in Our name, We
should certainly seize him by his right hand, and We should certainly
then cut off the artery of his heart: Nor could any of you withhold him
from Our wrath.
But verily this is a Message for the Allah-fearing. And We certainly
know that there are amongst you those that reject it.
But truly Revelation is a cause of sorrow for the Unbelievers.
But verily it is Truth of assured certainty.
So glorify the name of your Lord Most High. 69:38–52
This is the Book; in it is guidance sure, without doubt, to those who
Who believe in the Unseen, are steadfast in prayer, and spend out of
what We have provided for them;
And who believe in the Revelation sent to them, and sent before
your time, and in their hearts have the assurance of the Hereafter.
They are on (true) guidance, from their Lord, and it is these who will
The mutual rivalry for piling up the good things of this world diverts
you from the more serious things, until you visit the graves. But nay,
you soon shall know the reality. Again, you soon shall know!
Nay, were you to know with certainty of mind, you would beware! You
shall certainly see Hell-Fire! Again, you shall see it with certainty of
sight! Then, shall you be questioned that Day about the joy you
indulged in! 102:1-8
Thus, then, if he be of those Nearest to Allah, there is for him Rest
and Satisfaction, and a Garden of Delights. And if he be of the
Companions of the Right Hand, for him is the salutation,”Peace be unto
thee”, from the Companions of the Right Hand.
And if he be of those who treat Truth as Falsehood, who go wrong, for
him is Entertainment with Boiling Water. And burning in Hell-Fire.
Verily, this is the Very Truth and Certainty. So celebrate with
praises the name of your Lord, the Supreme. 56:88-96
You are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in Allah. If only the People of the Book had faith, it were best for them: among them are some who have faith, but most of them are perverted transgressors. S3:110
Believe, therefore, in Allah and His Messenger, and in the Light which we
have sent down. And Allah is well acquainted with all that you do.
The Day that He assembles you all for a Day of Assembly – that will
be a Day of mutual loss and gain, and those who believe in Allah and work
righteousness- He will remove from them their ills, and He will admit
them to Gardens beneath which Rivers flow, to dwell therein for ever: that
will be the Supreme Achievement. S64:8-9
Which then is best? He that lays his foundation on piety to Allah and His good pleasure – or he that lays his foundation on an undermined sand-cliff ready to crumble to pieces – And it does crumble to pieces with him, into the fire of Hell. And Allah guides not people that do wrong. The foundation of those who so build is never free from suspicion and shakiness in their hearts, until their hearts are cut to pieces. And Allah is All-Knowing, Wise.
Allah has purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs in return is the garden of Paradise: They fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: A promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Quran: And who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah. Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded: that is the achievement supreme. S9:109-111
“Is it the case that we shall not die
– Except our first death, and that we shall not be punished?”
Verily this is the supreme achievement!
For the like of this let all strive, who wish to strive. S37:58-61
He has written Faith in their hearts and strengthened them with a spirit from Himself. And He will admit them to Gardens beneath which Rivers flow, to dwell therein forever. Allah will be well pleased with them, and they with Him. They are the Party of Allah.
– Truly it is the Party of Allah that will achieve Felicity. S58:22
– Those who respect their trusts and covenants;
– And those who stand firm in their testimonies;
– And those who guard the sacredness of their worship;
– Such will be the honoured ones in the Gardens of Bliss. 70:32-35
The Call, The Caller & the Called
We have reached this crossroads in our life where the universe finally turns its energy towards us.
An invitation is constantly being sent out to all souls, that arrives as a silent whisper in our most desperate moments. The call is for us to recognise the power that we are, the caller is the universal light that seeks to grant us what is our inherited rights and only those who respond to this invitation will become the called. It is now time to discover the Atom in You…
