[GOD ALMIGHTY IS NEARER THAN THE JUGULAR VEIN OF THE SLAVE]
Allah Almighty says: And we are nearer to him than his jugular vein (50:16)
The relation of the human being with Allah Almighty is same as the bone marrow is in the bones.
Allah Almighty says: And (also) in yourselves. Can you then not see? (51:61)
[IMPORTANCE OF THE NAFS AND SATAN IN THE BODY]
The Nafs and Satan are inside the body as blood is inside the blood vessels. Thus, what the significance of the kernel is? Same as the relation of the inner, the outer and the veins is with the physical body, same like this, difference is between the People of Ilm and the People of Faqar. When the Saalik reaches this Station, he becomes aware of the Reality of "the Christians said to him that God is one of the Three deities". Thus, according to this measure, there are three deities in human body:
1. The Nafs
2. The carnal desires
3. The God
Hence, kill the first two imaginary deities mentioned above and prove on yourself that "and Allah is only One God". Thenceforth, you will become Real Muslim as if Hazrat Ibrahim Alaihis-Salaam (Abraham) has just come out of the "idol-temple" after destroying the idols!
Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam said that: "he, who identified his Nafs, he identified his Sustainer as a result. That person, who identified that his Nafs as mortal, thus he identified his Sustainer as Eternal"
Let the greed (grasping) be for the People of greed (grasping) and Allah be for the People-of-Allah (Ahl-e-Allah)!
