Ishārat (Pointing) at Other Than Hu (IT)

Whomsoever does Ishārat (Point) at other than Allah—The Sublime—and reposes with other than Hu, Hu shall inflict trials upon him by afflictions, and Hu shall veil his heart against Hus (ITs) Dhikr (Remembrance) rushing off of his tongue, and if he develops the insight to cut away from all thus (pointing) towards Allah—The Singleton One—Allah shall uncover the hardship of the afflictions off of him.

Yet for as long as he is reposed along side other than Allah, Allah shall strip away the mercy from people’s heart for him, enrobes him the garb of greed towards them, evermore soliciting from people while their hearts deprived from mercy (for him), his life induced with humiliation, his death gloomy, his final end sorrow…

And we seek a sanctuary with Allah from reliance and trust upon other than Allah.



Q: How can I know I do not do Ishārat (Hinting, Pointing) at Hu (IT)?
A: You desire people yet they are repulsed by you, you have needs in them while they are niggardly, all you think about is soliciting this or that from people while drown in the anxiety and sorrow of their rejection. Yet the worst of all, you remember Hu not even for one second. Hu has left your mind and your tongue—you are all by your Self.

Q: How can I do Ishārat (Hinting, Pointing) at Hu?
A: You cannot DIRECTLY point at Hu since Hu is independent of space-time. However if you stopped pointing at people and things for your needs and cravings, by the process of elimination, you are virtually pointing at Hu. Better yet, by shunning from pointing at other Hu, you are poised to be pointed at by Hu from the other universe.

You are worried about your sustenance then you are pointing at other than Hu.
You are worried about being loved by others then you are pointing at other than Hu—abandoned, unloved and lonely.
You are worried about death then you are pointing at other than Hu and your death shall be painful and gloomy.
