Ahillah (Wisdom of new moons)

In the material world there are two means of material light, the sun during the day time and the moon during the night. Similarly, in religion there are two sources of the light of guidance: externally the Prophet and internally the Imam of the time. (viii) First, the natiq is the sun and the asas the moon, then the Imam is the sun and the bab is the moon. (ix) When the new moon of the light of a mu’min at the rank of intellect becomes the full moon, he is blessed with the holy vision (didar-i aqdas) and the supreme pilgrimage (hajj-i akbar). This is alluded to in the words “mawaqit (times)” and “hajj (pilgrimage)” in verse (2:189) mentioned above.

Liqa (Meeting, reunion)

Meeting with God is mentioned in numerous verses of the wise Qur’an. Here the important question: Is this meeting (liqa’) in the sense of didar (vision)? Answer: Yes, it is in the sense of didar. Further, is the didar of God possible in this world or is it possible only in the hereafter? Answer: Had it not been possible in this world, God would not have said: “And whosoever is blind in this (world) he shall (also) be blind in the hereafter.” (17:72)

Q277    It is mentioned in verse (6:103): “The eyes attain Him not, but He attains the eyes: He is the All-subtle, the All-aware.” What is the decree of this verse? Is the Divine vision possible or not in this world?

A277    The inner eye of a mu’min is not capable of elevating itself to reach the heights of honour, to see God and recognise Him, but it is very easy for God to manifest Himself graciously in front of his inner eye.
    One of the names of God is “an-nur” (the Light) and the other is “az-zahir” (the Manifest). This shows clearly that didar (vision) of God and His recognition are possible in this world. Reflect on the fact that man himself cannot see the sun, but its rays automatically enter his eyes.

Q278 Here is a brief but extremely difficult question related to verse (7:143): “O my Lord! Show me [Yourself] that I may behold You”, that is, give me Your dīdār. Did Hazrat Moses(c) have dīdār or not?

A278 Although the question is extremely difficult, but God willing, the One Who eases difficulties can help us.
This story of Hazrat Moses(c) is related to the stage of Hazrat Isrāfīl and Hazrat cIzrā’īl, where the mountain of soul smashes into particles due to the Divine manifestation, but there is no conspicuous dīdār .
Further on, at the blessed spot (al-buqcatu’l-mubārakah, 28:30), i.e. the sacred Sanctuary, Hazrat Moses(c) had the holy dīdār.
The tree or bush from which the voice was coming means the Universal Soul, who is the mazhar of Rahmān (the locus of the Compassionate) in the higher world.
