Al Haq. The Truth or The Real.

Bismi'llah ar-Rahman ar-Rahim...for the sake of Prophet Muhammad saws and Sheikh Nazim may Allah protect his secret.

Just say this before I trot off somewhere else.

" Under whatever name and form one may worship the Absolute Reality, it is only a means for realizing It without name and form. That alone is true realization, wherein one knows oneself in relation to that Reality, attains peace and realizes one's identity with it."

Uthman, hi. What does sufism say about religions which are not of the Book? Formal Islam makes a differentiation between believers of the Book and others, and that makes me a little uncomfortable.

Well,if you ever come back here for a reply,it kind of makes me feel a little uncomfortable too,but I can't hold out any longer.It's impossible (at least at the moment) to stick with one form.The Prophet said"If you know yourself you know your Lord." and I can't believe the self of a Hindu for instance,is any less Divine because he has the Baghavad Gita instead of the Koran.
What about Abraham? Even the Koran says he was not a Christian or a jew ..yet he is known as Halil Ibrahim "The Friend of God."
You probably know the quotes from Ibn Arabi and Rumi that back up what I am saying?
