[ABOUT REALITY OF RUH (SPIRIT)]
It should remain clear that as per the Non Muslim world, there are also three states of matter that is, the solid, liquid and gas in human body. That is bones, flesh and skin etcetera are solid thing. Blood and water are liquids and that air of breath which is spread inside, is gas. And this is an open fact that there is great influence of the air in heart and lungs in the blood and on this very air, that is, the blow of air the whole life and human existence is dependent upon. This is that very sequence of intake and outtake of air through which the electrical impulse of the human Spirit after generating from its powerhouse terminates in the cells of the human heart and brain and keeps the machine of human body warm, bright and running. Scientists, Chemists, Medics and Doctors are unaware of the reality of this hidden electrical impulse. These people call blood or its subtle temperature the Ruh (Spirit). Nevertheless, if Spirit were blood or temperature, then the human being should have become living again if his body is supplied air or heat after his death. Or otherwise, if the Spirit were just a temperate of the corporeal bulk, then it should have become somewhat imperfect or feeble when some human parts are cut off. Nonetheless, this does not happen. Instead, Spirit is a distinct (and unique) subtle and invisible thing of the realm of command. It is an electrical impulse of the Noor of the realm of command which comes in and goes out of the human body through the chain of respiration after leaving the powerhouse of this mineral of Anwaar and keeps it living and thriving.
Say: the Spirit is by the command of my Lord, and of knowledge you have been vouchsafed but little (17:85)
The kingdom of creation, the realm of Witness or the (quarters of) tangible world is the names of this corporeal material world. And the Realm of Command or the Realm of Unseen or the Realm of Anfus (intangible world) is the name of the subtle invisible and spiritual realm.
Allah Almighty says: His verily is all creation and commandment (7:54)
And He is the Sustainer and Lord of both of these subtle and dense realms and kingdoms.
At another occasion Allah Almighty says in respect to this Spirit: and have breathed into him of My spirit (15:29). Thus, that cipher and hint which is in 'breathing' the Spirit in the corporeal body is, it clearly has implication to this thing that the Spirit, which that 'breath' and blow, has been breathed into the human body, that is this very chord of Nafs and the air of respiration which enters and leaves the body of man in every breath. Reeh is an Arabic word which means air and this word 'Ruh' (Spirit) has roots from this very word Reeh (Air). And the Nafas Bafatha Faa is the name of blow of breath and air and the word Nafs Basakoon e Faa, is used in the meanings of 'soul' and Ruh. Hence, it is revealed that the Ruh and Reeh and Nafs and Nafasare two synonyms and words of same meanings and both are two same things. This is because that the Ruh has a close link and Inwardly relation with air and Ruh (Spirit) is a subtle and invisible. Consequently, the subtle jewel of the Spirit has been tied in human body with the subtle tie of air. Or in other words, that the Wise and the Omniscient has caged the subtle and the bird of the Lamakaan in the dense frame and corporeal cage of the human being through the subtle tie of the air. Since Spirit is the most subtle thing of the Realm of Command, since its settlement and stability in this dense world of matter was impossible except through subtle tie, therefore, that the Absolute Able One prescribed the medium and relation of the most subtle thing of the elements of the material world and after putting this very subtle string in the feet of the bird of the Lamakaan, He caged it in the cage of human body. Thus, the Spirit is confined in the human body by means of the air and blow of breath and through this very air of the breath and the chord of respiration, the electric impulse of the Noor, that is the spiritual food and power and nourishment continues to reach it from the powerhouse of the Realm of Command.
There is present a king of Spirit in everything of world including inanimate and animates and cattle and everything takes breath. But the inanimate Spirit (Jamaadi Ruh), animate Spirit (Nibaati Ruh) and the Spirit of cattle (Ruh e Haiwaani) and Human Spirit (Ruh e Insaani) and Heavenly Spirit (Ruh e Malakooti) all are different because of the difference of the levels and Maratib.
