PART OF SCIENCES
PART OF SCIENCES
The endless sea of rhetoric and the deep ocean of divine science are obtained from short statement but full of content of the holy household of the Prophet (peace be upon them). By referring back to this type of unique statements you will be bale to float in the seas of sciences and brighten your heart with the radiated light from the luminous light of the fountain of revelation; you should also take from the rose garden of science of the holy household of the Prophet (peace be upon them), and from the various compilation of Qur’anic rhetoric, the sciences and the wisdom of the holy household of the Prophet (peace be upon them).
Here we will bring their statements so that by pondering over it you will purify your mind and will also create zeal and cheerfulness in the deeper aspect of your soul.
The commander of the faithful (peace be upon him) said:
Whatever you know is also a creation.
The commander of the faithful (peace be upon him) made this statement in respect to knowing Almighty Allah but it is a general statement which we can derive a lot of things from it.
In order to expound that we said: anything a person knows in the level of thinking, is a thought and deductions that is obtained from the limit of person’s perception; it is just like a snap shot that is taken from a person or from any scenery and nature. The more a person’s camera is good and powerful the more the snap shot is fine and its specialties will be shown. But whatever the case may be, the snap shot will be the picture of that thing and not the real thing and you can not know the reality and essence of that thing through the picture; therefore no mater how a picture is fine it is still the picture of that thing and not its real.
There is also implementation of this issue in the topic of knowing Almighty Allah and the holy household of the Prophet (peace be upon them); therefore whatever tremendousness and power we know about Almighty Allah and that of the holy household of the Prophet (peace be upon them), it is through that our limited thinking and thought, then the convictions and doctrine is according to our limit and in reality we perceive their tremendousness according to our limited understanding.
In order to make our knowledge better and perfect, and in order to develop what we are having in our brain, and if we want to be close and near to truth and reality, we should take and learn our doctrine and sciences from the school of thought of revelation and to benefit from the sayings of the holy household of the Prophet (peace be upon them), likewise we should submit to their statements even though it is not in our level of our understanding so that we shine the mirror of our heart with their guided statement, if not the darkness of the soul will do its work and push us (human being) towards devastation and misguidance.
Knowing the doctrine and the sciences of the holy household of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and submission to them purify the heart and lighten the deep heart of human being with their luminous light and if it has reach the stage of perfection, it cleans all the convictions and wrong thought that exist in your memory right from childhood, rather it will clean all the wrong beliefs that is base on the law of inheritance or clean all the gene that was transfer from the previous generation to you.
