”…The fact is that he who is deprived of seeing God in this world will be deprived of it on the Day of Resurrection; too. God has said it Himself, man kaana fee haazihii a’amaa fahowa fil aakhirati a’amaa. Of course, it cannot mean that those who are sightless in this world will be raised sightless on the Day of Resurrection, as well…”
“The word Insaan (human being) is actually derived from unsan i.e. the collection of two affections. One affection of his is for God and the other is for the human beings. Since human being is closer to him and he finds him very near to himself and moreover he is his own species, he is very much influenced by him-and very quickly, too. That is why the company of a Perfect and a Righteous person grants him the Light which makes him see God and he is thus saved from the sin.
The fact is that the man has two ‘persons’ (or beings); one, that is born from the womb of his mother and whom we can see that he has come into existence with it; this person (or being) is given to everybody, without any distinction. But he has another person also (which is granted to him) and this ‘person’ of his gets constituted in the company of the Righteous. This ‘person’ is not such that we may be able to touch it or grasp it to prove that it is there. But this ‘person’ is definitely such that it causes death to the other ‘person’ of his. He becomes quite distinct and different from the thoughts that he previously had and the deeds that he previously perpetrated and the doubts that kept him in the darkness. He is freed from all these things. And it is this ‘person’ that can be said to be really and truly a representation of salvation; it is acquired after reaching the stage of purification. For, unless the man is freed from the doubts, he cannot attain to salvation from darkness and he cannot have perfectly purified himself and he cannot see God and the greatness and the grandeur of God cannot impress him in the least. The fact is that he who is deprived of seeing God in this world will be deprived of it on the Day of Resurrection; too. God has said it Himself, man kaana fee haazihii a’amaa fahowa fil aakhirati a’amaa. Of course, it cannot mean that those who are sightless in this world will be raised sightless on the Day of Resurrection, as well. It really means that those who seek after God are so enlightened that they can see God and witness His greatness and grandeur, so much so, that all the excellences and greatness of this world become meaningless for them and those who are deprived of the eyes that can see God in this world will not be able to see God in the next world, too”.
