Q: Who is with you wherever you might be?
is with you wherever you might be!
Note: Hu is the third person absent pronoun i.e.
IT or He, in
this case applies to the Divine Presence in third person pronoun.
‘Ey Nūr-eh Chashmānam (O the light of my eyes):
When someone loves you, and loving you with passion and verve, follows
you at all times and all places and has no other occupation other than
being obsessed by your presence. Had this lover had slightest speck of
insincerity on his/her love, there would have been gaps of
preoccupation away from you, there would have been moments of
carelessness and attention to other than you.
Azizam (My dearest love)—may Allah open your
eyes wide—it is not
the unborn child that helplessly follows the pregnant mother every
place she goes, it is the Jazaba (Attracting Force) of the Mahab-bat
Love) within the mother that forces her psychology and
physiology to follow the fetus helplessly no matter where it
goes! And unless by the punishing torment of an incredible pain the
mother shall not cease following her unborn, for the Mahab-bat
singleton unbreakable link an endowment from Azizat (your
Dearest Beloved)! And even after the birth the umbilical cord has to be
cut by an external force or the mother still cannot be separated from
2:256 whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah has
grasped the most
reliable hand-hold, for sure 'she' (hand-hold) never breaks
يَكْفُرْ بِالطَّاغُوتِ وَيُؤْمِنْ بِاللَّهِ فَقَدِ اسْتَمْسَكَ بِالْعُرْوَةِ
الْوُثْقَى لَا انْفِصَامَ لَهَا وَاللَّهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ
Note: The unbreakable link between the slave and
the Mahab-bat (Divine
Love) is gendered as female (Lahā, 'Urwati), as the verses of Qur’an
are gendered as female and the Kalimat or Divine Word is also gendered
as female. There is no linkage between Allah and the slaves except by
means of this inexorable female link i.e. even Jesus who was born
miraculously free of a father had to have a female mother to allow the
link between his existence in this world and Allah!
"The seeking and searching of the Lover is a sample of the beloved’s
seeking and searching! Whatever attribute is assigned to the lover, for
that matter any and all such attributes of the lover, are originally
the attributes of the beloved entrusted to the lover for safekeeping.
Yet, there is no sharing of these attributes, since the sharing would
cause the discernment of duality."
Fahmidi Nāzaninam? (Can you understand my caressing love?)
Behold: From the fetus in the belly of the mother, to the faintest star
of the deepest cosmos, to the hand that typed this to the eye that read
this, by the ink of the atoms and molecules and living organisms, all
and all, the Pen of Love has jutted down:
57:4 Wa (And) Hu is
with you wherever you might be!
وَهُوَ مَعَكُمْ أَيْنَ مَا كُنْتُمْ
is with you no matter when or where, and no matter what your
circumstances, since this Third Person, seemingly absent, Divine
Presence is in uncompromising love with ‘you’, following you closely.
As Araqi indicated, what makes the mother and fetus to follow each
other is the attribute of The Divine Beloved that was bestowed
upon the mother and the fetus. Without the bestowal of such attributes
from The Divine Beloved, no two objects would come together, not the
mother and the fetus, not the stars and the cosmos, not this hand and
these words and not your eyes and these letters. They come together due
to the gravitation of the Divine Love, a uniting force between any two
objects an endowment from That Divine Beloved.
Had the Divine
Love was flinching for a second glancing at someone
else, the fetus would have gone one way and the mother the other, the
stars and here and the cosmos there, and this hand and these words
would have never tryst…
80:34. That Day shall a man flee from his own brother,
80:35. And from his mother and his father,
80:36. And from his wife and his children.
يَفِرُّ الْمَرْءُ مِنْ أَخِيهِ (34) وَأُمِّهِ وَأَبِيهِ (35)
وَصَاحِبَتِهِ وَبَنِيهِ (36
And since the obsessed lover must track his most prized beloved, and
there is no time or place that the lover might cease following after
the precious beloved:
57:4 Wa (And) Hu is
with you wherever you might be!
Had this verse read without the word Wa (And) i.e. ‘Hu is
wherever you might be!’ it would have meant that the creation of the
heavens and earth had nothing to do with the feeling of someONE
following us every place and whenever time. ‘And’ indicates that there
had to be the creation of all other things for the single purpose of
rendering the trekking of the Divine Lover after ITs/His beloved i.e.
الَّذِي خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ
وَالْأَرْضَ فِي سِتَّةِ أَيَّامٍ ثُمَّ اسْتَوَى عَلَى الْعَرْشِ
يَعْلَمُ مَا يَلِجُ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَمَا يَخْرُجُ مِنْهَا وَمَا يَنْزِلُ
مِنَ السَّمَاءِ وَمَا يَعْرُجُ فِيهَا وَ هُوَ مَعَكُمْ أَيْنَ مَا
And you might now ask: What indicates that the purpose of this
following after the human beings is love and loving? Uncontrollably I
must answer: you!
From the follicles of your hair to the toes, ‘you’ are the
57:4 Wa (And) Hu is
with ‘you’ wherever 'you' might be!
If you could understand ‘you’, then you would have felt the presence of
Since the personal pronoun ‘you’, singular or plural, is a Divine
Gift, a vitiated extraction from the ‘Divine You’ (Ka) for when the
slave invokes the master: La-Ka Al-Hamdu (For Ka(You) all perpetual
praise and adoration). Had there been no Ka (You) no human being
could invoke Allah!

Let’s say today was a good day, your loved ones around and money in
your pocket and lots of colorful food on the table and slept with full
security and tranquility. Take some beans lay a wet paper-towel over
them! Soon ‘you’ notice they sprout into living moving creatures.
Let’s say today was not a good day, your loved ones betrayed you and
your job was lost and not much to eat and had sleepless night scared
about what comes tomorrow. Take some beans and lay a wet paper-towel

The two occasions have nothing in common except:

Don’t make the mistake that you are alone! Don’t make the mistake that
