    Unveiling of the Unseen

    Humanity has been in search of truth and purpose of life from the very beginning. GOD Al-Mighty sent Messengers and messages as Divine revelation to guide humanity towards their true purpose of existence. The Final Messenger of GOD صلى الله عليه وسلم enlightened the world with all what it needs and much more in relation to guidance. In this day and age due to advancement of technology and other sciences many hasbegun questioning the existence of the unseen world and the realities of the hereafter. The purpose of this retreat is to help the participants to experience and witness some fo the unseen realities at first hand, so that they may strengthen their faith and then seriously live their life according to the divine commands and prophetic Sunnah with sincerity. The retreat offers participants a unique and practical experience of the three levels of certainty and belief which comes through knowledge (Ilm-ul Yaqeen), vision (Ayn-ul Yaqeen) and experience (Haq-ul aqeen).  The "Unveiling of the Unseen" program traditionally follows the tazkiyah (purification) program (offered Sat July 6) to provide the participant the theory and practical methodology of & Muraqaba; (meditation) that ultimately leads to enlightenment or the illumination of the spirit (purification of the Spirit - fourth stage of the purification program) and Divine Presence or annihilation in the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, and the Visitation of Prophet  صلى الله عليه وسلم in a wakeful state.

    The seeker is then also taught the spiritual prayer of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, which He mentioned after returning from the Miraj journey. Prayer is the Miraj of the believer. Through this prayer the seeker can establish a connection with Allah and be in the presence of Allah. Slowly the seeker can build this connection and be in this state throughout the day (and life), thus attaining the closeness of GOD in this world and the next. In summary the participant will develop the most beautiful relationship with the Creator, the Prophets, the creation and themselves by the Divine Mercy and Grace.

    Advice to gardeners.  Tend your love like a tender drink trim it back to give it vigor train its tendrils to give it form and symmetry Love cries for care but yearns for freedom. Whether from neglect or boldness you drop the pruning shears loose the knots your tame garden will leap to to boundless jungle. We build You palaces for our prayers but You sneak out the back door to make Your home in the cracks of pavement. We bring you poems but You cling to whispers. We court you with grand gestures You prefer little acts of love. Your greatness is made known in Your humility.

    Purification Of the Soul


    The Sage Abdul Qadir Gilani said: "Whomsoever has achieved the pleasure of Allah, has obtained everything, and whomsoever was not able to achieve the pleasure of Allah has lost everything. " Human beings have been created to surrender to and worship their Creator, Allah. We were designed to worship and obey Allah. If we are successful, then we may hope for the pleasure of Allah. If we fail to do this, we end up worshipping and serving ourselves, Satan, other people and false gods, and will fail in utter disgrace.  You can also attain the success Abdul Qadir al-Jilani was referring to by learning and travelling on the path to Allah. This path teaches one how to sincerely repent and strive to purify their body, mind heart and soul, eventually leading one to annihilate their inward and outward in the love and obedience of Allah and the Messenger (peace be upon Him) the result of which will be the attain Allah's closeness, pleasure and gnosis. This workshop is an introduction to the practical course of purification as described by Shaykh Abdul Qadir Gilani in four stages of purification : body, mind, heart and soul and finally the enlightenment or illumination of the spirit (Ruh)

    Hey Ricardo. I think you have tied the relationship between the physical dimensions and the unknown realities (interstellar). Can you expand more on the sings that lead to this conclusion.
