Achieving the Quranic State of Being (QSOB) is the objective of reading Quran. This is a state in which the Reader is fully in tune with Being and will come to understand the reality of Allah. In this series of exercises, we hope to show you how to induce the QSOB. Our methods are not infallible but worth trying anyway as the results are worthwhile.
We will begin with inducing QSOB through the beginnings of chapters. Apart from aya zero (the basmalah formula), the beginnings of chapters prepare us to receive the meanings of its entirety. Thus special care should be take to understand them.
We will continue by looking at Chapter 57 (Al-Hashr) Verses 1-3
This chapter starts with the concept of tasbeeh. Think of the universe vibrating towards the ‘frequency’ of Allah. Everything is moving towards this frequency. This is connected to Allah’s quality as al-azeez and al-hakeem (the powerful and judicious).
Focus on the dominion and power of Allah. Through this vibration, Allah potentializes every thing in the universe.
Now focus on Allah’s quality as the first, the last, the hidden, the manifest. He is in every level of our existence. Please now read the chapter.
How do you feel?
