Solution: Great Spirit ~ Hi all readers! In this article I will explain the creation of the great spirit, the spirit of the Prophet Muhammad. As Muslims we really need to know about it, because it will increase our knowledge and it can also improve the quality of our faith.
I must say here, that the first human being created by Allah was Prophet Adam. But before that Allah had created many creatures, especially Angels. In fact, the Angel once asked Allah, why would he create Adam who incidentally is a human. Allah says;
وَإِذۡ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلۡمَلَٰٓئِكَةِ إِنِّي جَاعِلٞ فِي ٱلۡأَرۡضِ خَلِيفَةٗۖ قَالُوٓاْ أَتَجۡعَلُ فِيهَا مَن يُفۡسِدُ فِيهَا وَيَسۡفِكُ ٱلدِّمَآءَ وَنَحۡنُ نُسَبِّحُ بِحَمۡدِكَ وَنُقَدِّسُ لَكَۖ قَالَ إِنِّيٓ أَعۡلَمُ مَا لَا تَعۡلَمُونَ ٣٠
And when your Lord said to the angels, I am going to place in the earth a khalifa, they said: What! wilt Thou place in it such as shall make mischief in it and shed blood, and we celebrate Thy praise and extol Thy holiness? He said: Surely, I know what you do not know. (Al-Baqarah ; 30).
But do you know, that Adam and the Angels were not the first creatures created by Allah. Who was the first creature created?
There is interesting information about it in the Daqaa’iqu al-Akhbaar fii Dzikri al-Jannati wa an-Naar. Pay attention!
In the book explained, that before Allah created the light of the Prophet Muhammad, Allah first created the al-Yaqiin tree (syajaratu al-Yaqiin) which had four branches. Then Allah created the light of the Prophet Muhammad in a veil made of white pearl like a peacock. Allah then put it on the tree. Up there the bird read prayer beads for about seventy thousand years.
Then Allah creates a mirror of life. The mirror is then placed in front of the peacock. When the bird sees the mirror, he sees the picture as the most beautiful image and its shape as the most beautiful form. He was ashamed of Allah and then shed six sweat. From the first sweat Allah created Abu Bakr. From the second sweat Allah created Umar. From the third sweat Allah created Uthman. From the fourth sweat Allah created Ali. From the fifth sweat Allah created roses. From the sixth sweat Allah created rice.
Then the light of Prophet Muhammad prostrated five times. Prostration then becomes a command for us to pray five times a day. Allah then obliged to pray five times to the Prophet Muhammad and his people.
Then Allah looked at the light of the Prophet Muhammad once more. He then shed sweat from shame on Allah. From the sweat of his nose Allah created all angels. From the sweat of his face Allah created ‘Arsy, al-Kursiy, Lauh Mahfudh, al-Qalam, sun, moon, veils, stars, and all objects in the sky. From the sweat of his chest Alalh created all the Prophets, all the messengers, all the scholars, all those who fell in the way of Allah, and all the pious people. From the sweat of his back Allah created Baitul Makmur, Ka’bah, Baitul Muqaddas, and all the places of prostration in the world.
From the sweat of his brow, Allah created the people of the Prophet Muhammad. From the sweat of his ears Allah cast the souls of the Jews, the souls of the Christians, the souls of the Magi, and those who resembled them, like the spirits of the atheists, the spirits of the dissident, and the souls of the hypocrites. From the sweat of his feet, Allah created the earth from east to west and everything in it. Then Allah said to the light, “Look before you, O light of Muhammad!” Then the light of the Prophet Muhammad saw the light in front of him, the light behind him, the light on his right side, and the light on his left. They were Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman, and Ali. Then the light of the Prophet Muhammad read prayer beads for seventy thousand years.
Then Allah created the light of the Prophets from the light of the Prophet Muhammad. Then Allah created the spirit of the Prophets from the sweat of the spirit of the Prophet Muhammad. Then Allah created the soul of all the Prophets from the sweat of their Prophets; all souls of every people are created from the sweat of their Prophet’s soul. The souls of the faithful people of the Prophet Muhammad were created from the sweat of the Prophet Muhammad. They then said, Laa ilaaha illallaahu Muhammad Rasuulullaahi (there is no Allah but Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah).
All readers! You must know that Allah told all beings to pray in the form of the names of Ahmad and Muhammad (أحمد and محمد). Stand like the letter alif (أ), bow like the letter ha’ (ح), bow down like the letter mim (م), and sit like the letter dal (د). Allah has created creatures like the name Muhammad (محمد); round head like the first letter mim (م), two hands like the letter ha’ (ح), belly like the second letter mim (م), and two legs like the letter dal (د). None of the infidels were burned in this form, but the shape was changed to the shape of a pig then he was burned.
All readers! That is a brief explanation of great Spirit. May be useful! Amen!
