Dr. Pasha’s Arabic Language and Cultural Immersion Sessions — Lesson 26
Ghayib and Shahaadah:
How the Two Worlds Interface
Laa Ilaaha Illaa Allah:
Demolish and Clear All Old Ruins, Then Put Up the New Building
Laa: Clear all debris and clutter from your heart and mind.
Laa: Remove all barriers and obstacles and hindrances.
Laa: Remove all cobwebs from your brain, mind and soul.
Ilaah: Objects and things — visible and invisible; tangible and intangible — you love, admire, honor and, basically, “worship” most, no matter by what name you call them.
Ilaaha: Two kinds of Ilaahs: Visible and Invisible — Ghayib and Shahaadah.
laaha: Shahaadah – All visible objects and idols, whether a statue or image or figure or tangible worldly possession of any kind.
Ilaaha: Ghayib – All invisible things whether Your Ego; your Nafs; your Opinions; your Views; your Desires; your own perceived Power or importance.
All this is referred to as Hawaa.
Hawaa: invisible Ilaah. The Ilaah that resides inside you.
A Fa-Ra-Ayita Manittakhadha Ilaahahu Hawaahu.
Illaa: Transition from Shahaadah to Ghayib.
Illaa: Connects Shahaadah to Ghayib.
Allah: All Ghayib.
