In Sufism (Islamic Mysticism), there is a phemen referred to as Annihilation in Allah, a state in which a person releases himself from the false reality of his ego, and manifests his True Self. Giving up ego-driven desires and showing equanimity in the face of changing circumstances one ascends to the level of a 'servant of Allah', reaching the station of divine pleasure. Essentially Sufism is based on the reality that everything and everyone in the corporeal worlds is the manifestation of the One, and so everyone in terms of their essence, is comprised of the Divine Names, the very qualities and attributes constituting existence. Looking at things from this angle all judgments, criticisms, labels and tags are dropped and only the One is observed. Everything in existence becomes a mirror, reflecting the innumerous qualities of Allah. You are holding in your hands a translation of one of the very first books written by Ahmed Hulusi. This detailed and concise presentation of Ahmed Hulusi's 1967 masterpiece is designed to act as a mirror for the READer that is searching to find his essence, his true self.
Ahmed Hulusi (Born January 21, 1945, Istanbul, Turkey) contemporary Islamic philosopher. From 1965 to this day he has written close to 30 books. His books are written based on Sufi wisdom and explain Islam through scientific principles. His established belief that the knowledge of Allah can only be properly shared without any expectation of return has led him to offer all of his works which include books, articles, and videos free of charge via his web-site. In 1970 he started examining the art of spirit evocation and linked these subjects parallel references in the Quran (smokeless flames and flames instilling pores). He found that these references were in fact pointing to luminous energy which led him to write Spirit, Man, Jinn while working as a journalist for the Aksam newspaper in Turkey. Published in 1985, his work called 'Mysteries of Man (Insan ve Sirlari)' was Hulusi's first foray into decoding the messages of the Quran filled with metaphors and examples through a scientific backdrop. In 1991 he published A Guide To Prayer And Dhikr (Dua and Zikir)' where he explains how the repetition of certain prayers and words can lead to the realization of the divine attributes inherent within our essence through increased brain capacity. In 2009 he completed his final work, 'Decoding the Quran, A Unique Sufi Interpretation' which encompasses the understanding of leading Sufi scholars such as Abdulkarim al Jili, Abdul-Qadir Gilani, Muhyiddin Ibn al-Arabi, Imam Rabbani, Ahmed ar-Rifai, Imam Ghazali, and Razi, and which approached the messages of the Quran through the secret Key of the letter 'B'.
