And people would have engaged in this pursuit whereas this thing could have become a cause of great disturbance and a hurdle in the way of the real aim of the religious mission and the holy objective. That is why, the Holy Prophet Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam has told this reality in the cover of a peaceful wrapped hint and a cryptic gesture so that every next age may get teaching from it as per its respective wisdom and understanding as it has been said that 'talk before the people according to their wisdom and understanding' . The Holy Prophet Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam has already pronounced that 'I have been granted comprehensive word'. Through this Word, every lower, higher and the common and proper person gets the teaching according to his respective perception. In short, that Word and Say is spoken on appropriate time, right occasion and according to the need of the hour and is supported and powered with strategy due and with the best sermon, it proves to be very effective and useful.
Saints have said 'the best Word is that which is brief yet to the point'. The Holy Prophet Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam has stopped his Ummat from indulging into and from getting caught up in this kind of the unnecessary lengthy and vast physical knowledge related to the cosmos. Hence, he has said about this that 'whenever someone talks about the issues pertaining to the stars of the heavens or about the personality of my Companions Radhi-ya-Allahu Ta-aala Anhum or the mutual disagreements amongst them or about the predestination set by Allah Almighty before you, you should keep quiet and do not take interest thereto but instead endeavor for the worship, Zikr Fikr, Marifat, Qurb, Mushahida and Wisaal of Allah Almighty which is the original source and the substance of the entire Uloom and knowledge which surrounds all other Uloom automatically'. Well, the objective of exposing the reality of those stars at this occasion is just this that a little glimpse of the all magnificence and the everlasting glory and splendor of the Essence of Allah Almighty the Ahkamul Hakimeen may be seen by this silly and ignorant human being that that Primordial, Uncreated, Holy and Sacred Pure Essence is the Possessor of how much unlimited, eternal and magnificently powerful Abilities and Calibers and that Essence of the Majesty is how much above and beyond and farther to and far away and ahead of the scope of the human wisdom and physical perception.
Allah Almighty says:
O mankind! A similitude is coined, so pay heed to it: Lo! those on whom you call beside Allah will never create a fly though they combine together for the purpose. And if the fly took something from them, they could not rescue it from it. So weak are (both) the seeker and the sought! They measure not Allah His rightful measure. Lo! Allah is Strong, Almighty (22:73)
Further, this aim is also in the mind of this Faqeer in giving the afore-mentioned statement that the human being should understand his abject, disable and a naught existentiality that it is a drop of impure water in which the gas of the image and haughtiness of the Nafs has entered and he, swollen with the air of vanity and Self-conceit, hovering here and there over the surface of the world with silly demur and tantrum, is thinking that 'all except me are just nothing'. Side by side this, the readers may further be Illuminated that this physical world which is also called the Realm of Witnessed (Aalim-e-Shahadat), is as much dark and narrow a place is as compared to the Invisible Subtle Cosmos of the Realm of Unseen is the womb of mother for the fetus as compared to this outward world. Thus, the human being ought not to consider this physical atmosphere to be everything but instead this should be crystal clear on him that like this ours vast and huge world, there are many other countless earths and spheres in Allah's Cosmos as compared to which ours this earth, in spite of its vastness and magnitude, is like a dust particle. Moreover, you should estimate the worth of your 'self' inside this multiplicity of so many creations and populations with which this earth is diversely filled and, therefore, you should not walk on earth with pride and haughtiness as Allah Almighty says:
And walk not in the earth exultant. Lo! you cannot rend earth, nor can you stretch to the height of the hills (17:37)
