Moslems Call Their Book The “Koran,”
Which Means “Readings”
Prophet Muhammad was
commanded in a sleep or trance by an Angel of God (Gabriel) to
“read”. He did not know how to read so he answered, “I cannot
read.” The voice again said, “Read!” He repeated, “I
cannot read.” For the third time, the voice demanded, “Read!”
He then asked, “What can I read?”
So, the revelations from the Akashic Records started to be revealed
to him. In fact, he never read anything but the voice of
Gabriel revealed it to him from these records.
The Akashic Records
refer to the Book of Remembrance or the Source of Decrees.
They are the cosmic records of creation and history and the memory
of the Universal Mind. Any action or event that occurs in the
universe creates a record of that event in the Universal Mind as
these records. They are the truest source of the realities
behind this universe, and whatever had happened from the beginning
of creation until now is kept there.
Prophet Muhammad was demanded by Gabriel to “Read!” it did not mean
to read from a paper or regular writings, but it meant to read from
these Akashic Records. “Koran” means “Readings.”
Also, there was a Prophet born in America by the name of Edgar Cayce
who would go to sleep (in a kind of trance) and would reveal
valuable information from these Akashic Records. His works
also are known as “Readings”. It is no accident that the
answers from Prophet Cayce in sleep, and the revelations to Prophet
Muhammad in a trance both are called “readings.” This again
has been done to make man believe and have faith in these
Muhammad could not read or write even after he was chosen as a
Prophet. What he read were the revelations given to him from
the Universal Mind.
an illiterate man. How did he know the things given in the
Koran? We can see that when the Spirit of God is with you, you
do not have to read a lot of books to recognize the subtleness of
the creation and God.
Actually, he was a very intelligent man. Intelligence does not
mean education. Education and intelligence are two completely
basic teaching of Islam consists of several points: There is only
one God (“Tohied”). He is the absolute power. He is
just, merciful, and beneficent. There will be a last day of
judgment (“Moaad”), which is the resurrection from the dead
(ignorance) to life (spiritual knowledge). There should be
acceptance of the Prophets sent by God (“Nabovat”).
Koran teaches that all things in the universe belong to God,
and humans should only surrender and submit themselves to Him.
In fact, “Islam” means “to be surrendered and submissive to the
Lord,” and it is this which is the most important message of
this religion and the very theme of the Koran.
Koran, heaven is the place where man meets the Creator (God).
According to the Law of the universe “same sees same,” it means that
only those who reach the same consciousness as the Lord can see Him.
God is in Pure Consciousness and pure, so when man also reaches Pure
Consciousness or is pure in heart, he will meet his God (Divine
Father) face-to-face. So, heaven and Pure Consciousness are
Also, heaven is described as a place of rest. When a unit
consciousness reaches Pure Consciousness, he masters all the powers
of the universe so he does not have to struggle in using them.
He is their master (by His permission).
Therefore, we can see that in the Koran, heaven was described
in symbolic language suited to the level of consciousness of the
people at that time. Actually, it is describing the same thing
as what we call Pure Consciousness. Indeed, all the Scriptures
should be read with a consideration of the time, place, and people
involved. This allows for maximum benefit and an understanding
of the symbolic language and also the consequence of the
studying the Koran and Islam, we should always have in mind
where its symbol is located in The Greatest Sign and the
message behind the fourth seal. Only then will these
teachings, the Koran itself, and Islam (“Is-Lamb”), make more
sense in relation to the other signs and history.
In fact, the complete Scripture for humanity is one that
covers the description of all the seven symbols in
