■ What does Resurrection mean?

■ What are human beings ending up to?

■ Are Paradise and Hell imaginary or a shocking reality?

This collection comprises 75 sessions in ten volumes concerning man’s worldly life in the abode of delusion, the mode of transformation of this abode into the world of truths and realities, and his departure toward God and the Ultimate of the ultimate.


 Excerpts from the book:

• The faithful live with their attention focused on God and relying on the Eternity; and the unfaithful on the basis of carnal desires and transient worldly life.

• Religion is revealed to tell man that he is not idle and forsaken and that he has come here to fulfill a [sacred] purpose.

• To fulfill the purpose of the Creation, matter and the material world must be left behind.

• Dying is purifying from the material.

• Death Angel (‘Izrā’īl) is a mirror in which the dying ones see their interior (bātin).

• Repentance is of no avail at death bed; prior to that must the intellect and the heart be directed toward God.

• Questioning in the grave and on the Resurrection will be addressed to man’s interior; hence, telling lies will be impossible.

• The expanse of one’s grave and the intermediate world (barzakh) is proportionate to one’s understanding of and acting on the spiritualities.

• Man’s soul will face the materialization of his own actions in the grave and on the Resurrection.

• On the Resurrection, there is only the Light of God and nothing else.

• Being oblivious toward God would cause blindness in the next realms of being.

• A sound heart is one in which there is nothing and no one but God.   

• Intercession accrues to those who have accepted servitude to God but are sinful.
