The Relation between Human Beings and the Metaphysical Realm of Barsakh

 

The Relation between Human Beings and the Metaphysical Realm of Barsakh

Introduction:

1- We cannot see the metaphysical realm of Barsakh; we are attached and tied closely to the physical world by our bodies; yet, the relation between human beings and Barsakh is stronger than their link with the physical earth and universe (with its planets, stars, and galaxies). Modern science is based on denying the metaphysical aspect of existence; yet, scientific advancement now includes discovering metaphysical universes/dimensions that overlap with the physical universe; these metaphysical realm or levels are called (Barsakh) in the Quran. The Arabic term (Barsakh) means a barrier or a boundary; this means that there are barriers between us and other metaphysical universes or realms and we cannot see or feel them despite the fact that Barsakh levels overlap the earth and the physical universe.     

2- We will not repeat the details we have mentioned before about Barsakh levels; we refer readers to our articles in English on that topic and to our books, in English, titled "The Book of Death" (http://www.ahl-alquran.com/arabic/book_main.php?main_id=120) and "The Night-Journey Is The Night of Decree" (http://www.ahl-alquran.com/arabic/book_main.php?main_id=112). We build our article here about the relation between humanity and Barsakh on these details; this relation is bigger and more profound than the relation of humanity with the physical earth and the universe.

3- We provide some details about this topic in the points below.

 

Firstly: our souls have been inside Barsakh before we are born in this world:

1- Originally, human souls belong to Barsakh; they are ethereal, Barsakh creatures; these souls are our real selves; our souls descend from Barsakh en enter into our bodies when we were inside wombs; we are born on earth to be tested in this world, and our bodies house these souls and we are provided with what God has taught to our father, Adam, and God has created the earth and everything in it to be in the service of all human beings. Even if anatomically, human bodies resemble those of great apes, the human souls that belong to Barsakh allow human beings to control creatures of this earth despite the fact that most of them are stronger than human beings. The grave error of Charles Darwin is that he considered human beings as merely bags of flesh and blood or just bodies, and he never acknowledged the existence of human souls (http://www.ahl-alquran.com/English/show_article.php?main_id=14152), despite the fact that the soul that controlled the brain and body of Darwin made him a great, famous scientist.

2- God has created all human souls together at one point inside Barsakh; He has given each soul its shape; the Holy Spirit; i.e., the arch-angel Gabriel, breathed the soul of Adam into the body of Adam, which was made of dust (or mud/clay) from the earth; inside the Barsakh realm, the angels were tested when God has commanded them to prostrate before Adam: "We created you, then We shaped you, then We said to the angels, "Bow down before Adam;" so they bowed down, except for Satan; he was not of those who bowed down." (7:11).

3- Within the Barsakh realm, God has created the wife of Adam from the soul (and NOT the body) of Adam: "It is He who created you from a single soul, and made from it its mate..." (7:189); "O people! Fear your Lord, who created you from a single soul, and created from it its mate..." (4:1); "He created you from one soul, then made from it its mate..." (39:6).

4- When the arch-angel Iblis arrogantly refused to prostrate to Adam, God has expelled him from the Upper Realm and He turned him into a jinn; he has become Satan the Devil; since devils and their progeny live within the earth Barsakh lower levels, they cannot ascend into the Barsakh levels of the heavens. 

5- Within a Barsakh Paradise within the lower levels of Barsakh on earth, Adam and his wife lived along with Barsakh, ethereal creatures; they enjoyed the bliss and pleasures of such Paradise; both Adam and his wife were to eat from the fruits of all trees except one; within the same Barsakh level on earth, both saw Satan and talked to him and he talked to them; he convinced them, as an advisor who swore falsely that he was saying the truth, to eat from the forbidden fruit of the forbidden tree. Within this Barsakh Paradise, the earthly bodies of Adam and his wife were covered with Barsakh clothes of Light covering them; once they ate the forbidden fruit as per the ill-advice of Satan, this Light was removed from their bodies and they saw each other's nakedness for the first time; they saw their earthly bodies and felt panicked; they covered it with the Barsakh-Light leaves of the trees of this Paradise. Satan felt schadenfreude and gloated over the misfortune and sin of Adam and his wife; God has commanded that Adam and his wife, for their disobedience, must descend unto the physical earth: "And you, Adam, inhabit the Garden, you and your wife, and eat whatever you wish; but do not approach this tree, lest you become sinners." But Satan whispered to them, to reveal to them their nakedness, which was invisible to them. He said, "Your Lord has only forbidden you this tree, lest you become angels, or become immortals." And he swore to them, "I am a sincere advisor to you." So he lured them with deceit. And when they tasted the tree, their nakedness became evident to them, and they began covering themselves with the leaves of the Garden. And their Lord called out to them, "Did I not forbid you from this tree, and say to you that Satan is a sworn enemy to you?"" (7:19-22); "O Children of Adam! Do not let Satan seduce you, as he drove your parents out of the Garden, stripping them of their garments, to show them their nakedness. He sees you, him and his clan, from where you cannot see them..." (7:27).  

6- God did NOT intend to make Adam and his wife live in this Barsakh Paradise for good; rather, He predestined them to live in the physical earth; this is why their earthly bodies were covered at first with clothes made of Barsakh-Light; God has said the following to the angels before the creation of Adam: "When your Lord said to the angels, "I am placing a successor on earth."..." (2:30); this human successor and his progeny of human beings are to replace Gog and Magog who spread bloodshed and corruption on earth, as we infer from the words of the angels: "...They said, "Will You place in it someone who will cause corruption in it and shed blood, while we declare Your praises and sanctify You?" He said, "I know what you do not know."" (2:30). 

7- Adam and wife, as well as their yet-to-be-born progeny, descended unto the earth; God has said to Adam and his wife the following phrase: "He said, "Go down from it, altogether..." (20:123); the rest of this context is addressed to all progeny of Adam: "...some of you enemies of some others. But whenever guidance comes to you from Me, whoever follows My guidance, will not go astray, nor suffer. But whoever turns away from My Reminder, for him is a confined life. And We will raise him on the Day of Resurrection blind."" (20:123-124). The address mode here to Adam and his wife is directed to all humanity through them: "...We said, "Go down, some of you enemies of one another. And you will have residence on earth, and enjoyment for a while."" (2:36); " He said, "Fall, some of you enemies to one another. On earth you will have residence and livelihood for a while." He said, "In it you will live, and in it you will die, and from it you will be brought out."" (7:24-25); "We said, "Go down from it, all of you. Yet whenever guidance comes to you from Me, then whoever follows My guidance - they have nothing to fear, nor shall they grieve. But as for those who disbelieve and reject Our Verses - these are the inmates of the Fire - wherein they will remain forever."" (2:38-39).

8- Within this physical earth, the physical bodies of Adam and his wife contacted each other sexually and they had their first child: "It is He who created you from a single soul, and made from it its mate, that he may find comfort with her. Then, when he has covered her, she conceives a light load, and she carries it around. But when she has grown heavy, they pray to God their Lord, "if You give us a good child, we will be among the thankful."" (7:189); they had other children later on and this progeny mated together and the human race began to populate the earth: "O people! Fear your Lord, who created you from a single soul, and created from it its mate, and propagated from them many men and women..." (4:1).

 

Secondly: the relation between human beings and Barsakh goes on until now:

1- Within the six Barsakh levels of the earth, other non-human creatures exist and live; they are never seen by human beings, and yet, they overlap with the souls of the human beings and there is a tie between souls of human beings and these Barsakh ethereal creatures.

1/1: These Barsakh ethereal creatures include Satan the Devil and his progeny and their mission is to deceive human beings to lead them to Hell in the Hereafter; Satan managed to deceive Adam and his wife, who are the father and mother of humanity, and the Dominant Lord God warns us here about this: "O Children of Adam! Do not let Satan seduce you, as he drove your parents out of the Garden, stripping them of their garments, to show them their nakedness. He sees you, him and his clan, from where you cannot see them. We have made the devils allies of those who do not believe." (7:27); this is what devils do to human souls who reject the Remembrance of the Lord God: "Whoever shuns the remembrance of the Dominant Lord, We assign for him a devil, to be his companion. They hinder them from the Path, though they think they are guided." (43:36-37). Sinners never see devils in this world; they will see them on the Last Day and in the Hereafter: "Until, when he comes to Us, he will say, "If only there were between me and you the distance of the two Easts." What an evil companion!" (43:38). Devils whisper evildoing to the souls; both devils and souls are Barsakh, ethereal creatures; souls control our senses and our brain. Disobedient disbelievers read/hear the Quranic Truth but devils who control their souls make them never heed the Truth or the Quranic guidance; i.e. they drape a thick veil their hearts/minds/souls and their senses: "And if you call them to guidance, they will not hear. And you see them looking at you, yet they do not see." (7:198). 

1/2: These Barsakh ethereal creatures include the jinn; some of the jinn are believers and some are disbelievers who join the devils in the mission to misguide human beings by devilish, false revelations ascribed falsely to the Divine Revelation or the Religion of the Lord God; such false or fabricated revelations are the bases of earthly/terrestrial man-made religions that contradict God's Religion: "Likewise, We have assigned for every prophet an enemy - human and jinn devils - inspiring one another with fancy words in order to deceive. But had your Lord willed, they would not have done it. So leave them to their fabrications. So that the hearts of those who do not believe in the Hereafter may incline to it, and be content with it, and that they may perpetrate whatever they perpetrate." (6:112-113).     

1/3: These Barsakh ethereal creatures include angels of many types as follows.

1/3/1: There are the arch-angels, including Gabriel, who reside in the Upper Realm of the Barsakh levels of heavens; they gave Scriptures/Revelation to the Lord God's prophets/messengers; they now descend annually within the Night of Decree every Ramadan on the lower Barsakh level of the earth to carry the fates/decrees of the Lord God ordained on human beings for the duration of one year: deaths, births, adversities, and earnings/provisions. God has preordained the timing when each soul will be born in human flesh to be tested in this world; the countdown for the death of any human being begins once he/she is born out of the womb. Before breathing the soul into the fetus, it was not a The timing of the death of each human being is also preordained/predestined by God; souls of the dead people return to Barsakh, their original location; it is noteworthy that God has decided the shape and features of each soul in Barsakh: "We created you, then We shaped you, then We said to the angels, "Bow down before Adam;" so they bowed down, except for Satan; he was not of those who bowed down." (7:11); this process goes on within fetuses and born human beings: "It is He who forms you in the wombs as He wills. There is no God except He, the Almighty, the Wise." (3:6). When people die, their bodies decompose and turn into dust eventually, but the resurrected souls carry the same shape and features as people will recognize one another, flee at first, and talk together, etc. as per many Quranic verses. 

1/3/2: There are angels who record deeds of all people; these Books of Deeds will be carried by each soul on the Day of Resurrection instead of the earthly bodies which turned into dust.

1/3/3: There are angels of death who receive the souls of the dying human beings.

2- Within a low Barsakh level of the earth, souls of human beings are located; they are of several types as follows.

2/1: Dead souls who cannot feel anything or anyone:

2/1/1: Souls of those yet-to-be-born human beings who cannot feel or see the living people on earth; e.g., souls of our grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

2/1/2: Souls of the dead human beings who cannot feel or see the living people on earth. After the duration of their test of life ended, their souls returned to Barsakh; e.g., souls of our parents and forefathers.

2- Living souls in Barsakh:

2/1: Souls during deep slumber return momentarily to Barsakh; they are still tied to their bodies to which they return once we wake up; some dreams/visions are true scenes from Barsakh which souls come across sometimes and such scenes foretell the future. Of course, most dreams/visions are mere jumbles of dreams with no real significance or meaning.

2/2: Souls of those who were killed for God's sake while serving His cause; they feel and see living human beings on earth but the vice-versa is not true; we cannot see or feel them.

2/3: Souls of those sinners who are being tormented inside Barsakh; they feel and see living human beings on earth but the vice-versa is not true; we cannot see or feel them.
