who commands and prohibits and utters His address – then certainly just as the life in the universe testifies decisively to the necessary existence of the Pre-Eternal Ever-Living One, it looks also to the pillars of belief the sending of messengers and revelation of scriptures, which are the rays, manifestations, and communications of that Pre-Eternal Life. And since the messengership of Muhammad (UWBP) and the Qur’anic revelation are like the spirit and intelligence of life, it may be said that their truth is as certain as the existence of life.
Yes, just as life is the distilled essence of the universe; and consciousness and sense perception are distilled from life and are the essence of life; and intelligence too is distilled from consciousness and sense perception and is the essence of consciousness; and spirit is the pure, unsullied substance of life, its stable and autonomous essence; so too, the physical and spiritual life of Muhammad (UWBP) is the distilled quintessence of the life and spirit of the universe; and the messengership of Muhammad (UWBP) is the very purest essence distilled from the senses, consciousness, and intelligence of the universe. Indeed, the physical and spiritual life of Muhammad (UWBP), is, through the testimony of its works, the very life of the universe’s life. And Muhammad’s (UWBP) messengership is the consciousness and light of the universe’s consciousness. While the Qur’anic revelation, according to the testimony of its living truths, is the spirit of the universe’s life and the intelligence of its consciousness.
Yes, yes, yes! If the light of Muhammad’s (UWBP) messengership were to depart from the universe, the universe would die. If the Qur’an were to depart, the universe would go mad, the earth would lose its head and its reason; it would even strike its now unconscious head on a planet and Doomsday would occur.
Life also looks to the pillar of belief in divine determining and proves it indirectly. Because, since life is the light of the Manifest World, and it dominates it, and is the result and aim of existence, and since it is the most comprehensive mirror of the Creator of the universe and the most perfect sample and index of dominical activity, and – let there be no mistake in the comparison – is like a sort of programme; for sure, the mystery of life necessitates that the creatures in the World of the Unseen, that is, the past and the future, that is, that have been and will come, are predisposed to conform to order, regularity, being known and observed, specific individual existence, and the creative commands, which are their lives in one respect.
The original seed of a tree and its root, as well as the seeds contained in its fruit and final outcome, all manifest a sort of life no less than the tree
