THE LIFE AFTER DEATH

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan I Simple Wisdom I P.38

The Prophet of Islam likened death to sleep and life to the state of wakefulness after sleep. When he awakened in the morning, he would say: “All praise and thanks are due to God who gave us life after death.” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Hadith No. 7394)

GOD: THE LIGHT OF THE UNIVERSE

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | Simple Wisdom I P.13

We have been told in the Quran that ‘God is the light of the heavens and the earth.’ (24:35) That is, all the light in the entire universe emanates from God’s Being. If the Almighty did not create light, it could not be derived from any other source.

REALIZATION OF TRUTH

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan I Discover Islam

The human mind is a mirror of reality. Everyone knows the function of a mirror: it reproduces anything that is placed in front of it. The image it produces corresponds exactly to the reflected object, leaving nothing out and adding nothing of its own. So, it is with the human mind. When reality is placed before this mirror, it is reproduced exactly. The image of truth which is reflected in the human mind is the same as that which stands before it. It recognizes the truth for what it is and accepts it as such.
