There are so many ways of looking at the same thing

Shaykh Taner Ansari

From: ~ Murshid Shaykh Taner Ansari ~

THERE ARE SO MANY WAYS OF LOOKING AT THE SAME THING:

Think about how many levels Allah is living His life. How many dimensions, how many levels, how many ways, how many manners! Do more thinking about these things. Start with the ones that are very apparent. Everyone has life, so think about life first. That’s the main thing, how does He live?

Manifest life the way Allah lives. Think about consciousness. Is all life conscious or do you first find consciousness in a brain? What is happening? Think about the dimensions. How many dimensions are there? How many ways are there? I am trying to encourage you get used to thinking in this way.

Very rarely does Allah make me repeat the same thing. He has been making me talk for 10 years or more now. It’s the same subject, but there are so many angles you can look at the same thing from. For example, take a sphere: how many circles can you put around a sphere? There are 360 degrees one way, 360 degrees every other way. There are so many different angles to look at it from.

That’s why you can sit here and talk about the same subject until you die and not say the same words. What does Allah say in the Quran? “If the oceans were ink and all the forests were pens, Allah’s words would not be finished.” He counted His blessings and He could not count them all.

Message from Shaykh Taner Ansari (in response to school massacre in Peshawar )

From: ~ Murshid Shaykh Taner Ansari ~

Dear All,

It is impossible to be quiet after seeing what is happening in the World, especially with those so-called Muslims.

The root of the problem is ignorance. The whole problem comes from not knowing Allah and what He likes and what He doesn’t like. Although He wrote what He wants, in several holy books and told us through the messages of 124,000 messengers.

How can you even think of killing the children is pleasing to Allah. How can you think that violence represents the peace (which Islam stands for)?

Most of the Muslims read Quran in Arabic, but do not understand.

Allah says in Qurani Kerim, “I do not abuse my creation.” He says, “Oh Muhammed (peace be upon him), if they make peace, make peace.”

If you want to represent Islam, then you have to be an element of peace, love, togetherness, kindness, mercy and knowledge. The ignorant will not be in the paradise.
