comes from the word "tasleim"
which means to be surrendered and/or submissive to Him. To be
surrendered means to do the best we can or to do His Will and
surrender the result to Him. <2>Because His Will is not clear
to everyone in any moment (His overall Plan and Will is revealed in
Sign) so we try to do our best to do His Will. Then if
God wills ("Enshallah"), the action we do will give a great
result. <3>But there should be no attachment to the result.
<4>There are three principles which are accepted
Moslems as the basic
Islam. They are:
Tohied = One
Nabovat = Acceptance of
Prophets sent by
3 - Moaad
= Day of Judgment.
<5>Some light will be shed on the meaning of
these principles with the following explanations:
<6>In its lower meaning,
tohied means that there is only one
God. <7>But it comes from the word "vahdat" or "vahed"
which means "to become one" or "one," so its greater meaning is that
He is everything and all is
God. However, this
greater meaning is not understood by many.
<8>This is a great truth in spiritual
understanding, because if "He is everything," then each
consciousness is a part of Him, so the illusion of separation
will vanish. <9>Even accepting the first meaning as there is
only one invisible God in
the universe (formless, nameless, etc.) can unify humanity, because
anything else (anything) besides the invisible
God accepted will divide humans on earth.
Himself comes to the earth and calls Himself by a name, the result
would be a division between people. Those who followed Him would use
the name He was given on earth, and those who followed an invisible
God would not use that name, or other people would follow the
with a different name. So the division would start. <11>It is
not the Will of
God to divide humanity from
Himself, but He wants to see all come back to unity with Him and be
<12>Through the virtue of this unifying aspect
of the invisible God (Allah),
unified Arabs and created the
Kingdom Of Heaven On Earth for a short period of time in a small
part of the world.
<13>Only He (the nameless) unifies. Any other
thing divides. That is why in His Ten Commandments to the Hebrews,
God emphasized that they
should not have any other
gods beside Him, and they should not make any image or anything
as their object of worship (not even pictures or names). <14>The
reason is very clear: it is true that He is everything and if you
look at anything He is there also, but this apparent division, which
is relative, will bring disunity to humanity, especially to those
who cannot see the unity between the seen and unseen.
should be followed by everyone in order to bring the unity to all.
The other names and images all should be forgotten and thrown away.
There is only One
-- the rest are dogmas.
<16>This means acceptance of the
Prophets and Messengers from
God as those who have been chosen to bring messages of the Lord
to humanity. These
should not be taken as God
Himself, but as His Messengers. Although they are in complete tune
with the Lord, and might even be the
accepting them as the Lord
God will again result in

important but his teachings are what is important. The teachings are
surely from God

God does it this way so
everyone can be sure that the person who claims to be the Expected
One is true and chosen. <19>Otherwise many will come in their
name and deceive many. It has been done this way so only the True
One will be recognized by the Elects.
<20>This means that there is a last day of judgment when the
good people will be separated from the bad. This also will happen.
<21>When the original
energy which was
generated to create this universe is consumed, then all will be
dissolved into its original form, and those who have reached
Pure Consciousness or higher consciousness will enter

until the next generation (creation). They will then have to
struggle again for crores of years for their salvation, because they
have lost the opportunity that was given to them in this creation to

humans, to reach

given to them?

Moslems (followers of

subject of dispute for centuries. Some say it is

Prophets but they do not give an explanation as to why he was
<28>However, in truth the word can be pronounced
in both ways, and both meanings are correct.
Muhammad brought the highest spiritual realization for humanity,
to be surrendered and submissive to the Lord. So there will not be
any higher realization brought to humanity (for more detail, read
Revelation of The Revelation). <30>So from this point
of view, he is the last Prophet, the "Khatem"

God's works into one aspect
or dimension. But
God's words and actions are
multidimensional. That is where the misunderstanding starts. You
cannot narrow the expanded work of the Lord to the small
understanding of man. <34>To know Him and His Words requires
bringing yourself to His expanded level.
<35>This endeavor of man to narrow the works of
the Lord is another reason for human sufferings.
<36>Another concept in
Islam is the word "jahad"
which is loosely translated as "holy war." <37>The true
jahad, however, is
internal and external struggle to establish truth and holiness. Its
meaning is the same as the tone of the Bhagavad-Gita
with its warrior Arjuna, who should internally and externally
struggle and overcome the obstacles toward his perfection.
<38>In fact only those who internally and
externally struggle all their lives are the ones who can declare a
holy war. <39>Otherwise, holy wars can be misused by those
who have narrow interests and manipulate the emotions of the people
toward their religions for their own selfish ends.
