Galactic Embrace is only a Glorification of the Divine.

Galactic Embrace is only a Glorification of the Divine.

Love is the divine urge of the Cosmos to merge into the Ocean of the Beloved. And it is a true form of Glorifications of the Absolute.

All existents pursue Love merely as inevitable expression to embrace its real Cosmological self; although man, as free being, often embraces the illusionary forms of Love.

17:44 Glorifies Him, the seven heavens and the earth and all that is therein. And there is not a thing but glorifies in His praise; but ye understand not their Glorification. Lo! He is ever Clement, Forgiving.

تُسَبِّحُ لَهُ السَّمَاوَاتُ السَّبْعُ وَالأَرْضُ وَمَن فِيهِنَّ وَإِن مِّن شَيْءٍ إِلاَّ يُسَبِّحُ بِحَمْدَهِ وَلَـكِن لاَّ تَفْقَهُونَ تَسْبِيحَهُمْ إِنَّهُ كَانَ حَلِيمًا غَفُورًا 17:44

Imam Hussain (AS),, The Champion of Freedom

I feel unworthy of writing about this tremendous personality, al-Hussain. I do not know how to introduce him. How could you really describe consciousness; how could you define honor; how could you explain patience. All such human values are unworthy of being synonymous with the reality of al-Hussain. Whatever is written about al-Hussain since his martyrdom until now and till the end of time, is truly a mere attempt of knowing what this universal idea, whom we call al-Hussain, is all about. Writing about someone like al-Hussain is like chasing after the “mirage” in the middle of the desert. As you know, conventionally, when introducing someone we usually tend to take the genealogy approach. We deliberately try to present the names of father, mother and whatever names that are related to the individual so that people may appreciate him or her. But this social norm of introduction may not be necessary in introducing someone like Imam Hussain(A.S).

Muslims and the Western world

It is important for Muslims, who live in the west, must always be conscious of one of the main principles of Islam that is to honour agreements, and to return goodness with goodness, as it is stated in 16:19 of the Holy Quran:

“16:91 And be true to your bond with God whenever you bind yourselves by a pledge, and do not break [your] oaths after having [freely] confirmed them and having called upon God to be witness to your good faith: behold, God knows all that you do. “

“وَأَوْفُواْ بِعَهْدِ اللّهِ إِذَا عَاهَدتُّمْ وَلاَ تَنقُضُواْ الأَيْمَانَ بَعْدَ تَوْكِيدِهَا وَقَدْ جَعَلْتُمُ اللّهَ عَلَيْكُمْ كَفِيلاً إِنَّ اللّهَ يَعْلَمُ مَا تَفْعَلُونَ “

According to the famous Muslim Quran commentator Al-Razi, he states that “every pledge given by man to man represents, in its essence, a pledge to God.”
