786…Eye dont want to go to heaven!!!


May the Peace of Allah, your True Self, be with you. The Self Is All. All is The Self. The Divine Self manifested on this plane of duality to Know It Self. All Is One. Duality is an illusion created by the mind and the false since of “i”. There is no “i” separate from Allah. “Hu am I.” Allah is Allah. Allah is All. The only Reality that exists is One. This One is your True Self. Wake up from the dream of a false since of separateness from the Divine. If you do not find Allah in your Self, you will never find Allah. If you do not Know Allah as your True Self, you will never Know Allah. Allah/God/Brahman/Yahweh are all names of your True Self. Die before you die, the way of the sufi…


When you melt, dissolving in the Unity Ocean of Allah Almighty then you may understand the meaning of “Fani-Fillah” (Annihilation in Allah). When you abandon your position as a being in existence, when you become as a drop of rain falling from the sky and are immersed, united in that Ocean of Divine Unity, then no one can ask where that drop has gone: the drop became an Ocean.”— beloved Maulana Cheikh Nazim- sultan ul Awlia


Once when eye was sitting with my Cheikh in Senegal, i looked at him and said “Cheikh Betcio, eye don’t want to go to heaven.” My beloved Cheikh looked at me and said, “I don’t want to go either.” Then he went on to explain the Divine Proximity of Allah, which he explained, is Beyond Heaven. In the Holy Quran in Surah Waqia Allah describes three groups in the next life/world: the people on the left, the people on the right, and the foremost. It is this group, the foremost, that the sufi tries to be with, in the Divine Proximity of Allah.
It was the great sufi Cheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani who said, ” i studied the heavens and found a flaw in heaven. Heaven is not eternal. It was at this point that i turned my face towards that which is eternal, Allah.” He, may Allah grant him more Light from Nur Muhammad (alay hi salam) also said “sufism is two steps, one step out of this world into the next world/heaven, and one step out of the next world/heaven into the Divine Presence.” My cheikh said that the difference between the Divine Presence and heaven is greater than the difference between heaven and hell…heaven is the hell of the sufi. Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba said, “heaven is for my lazy disciple.”
May we all seek for the Divine Presence….

  1. Good thoughts. Profound in oneness of all that is.

  2. Heaven? Where is heaven??? 🙂
    (btw. why did you replace a ‘h’ with a ‘c’? Complete reject or doubts or in between?)
    Much love,

  3. whereisallah?

    Asalaam Alaikum, I have been struggling with the thought of the self being allah because of much salafi/sunni indoctrination. Believing in a mystery god stopped making sense a long time ago and now im experiencing the same anxiety(literally) trying to think a new way as when I left christianity. So from what I’ve read on this blog and others it seems that Allah created us as physical vehicles to experience his infinite self and there is no seperation between allah and self and the all knowing is just another part of our actual infinite mind. This makes sense but how can I overcome the fear? A wise man once said Allah does not need your belief and Allah does not have an ego to except your praise. I’m starting to see that a jealous god who wants to burn people forever for sinning or not believing in him even if they lived a righteous life they are condemned?!!(This god sounds more like the people who advocate him than the actual creator) This has to be an invention of man and sad to say whites and pale arabs have used this idea of god to put fear in and enslave people into doing what they want. One question, If our true self is Allah, why do we ask for his help in times of crisis and for example do dikhr for protection? This concept has been my understanding of god on and off for years but I’ve somehow went back to religion on and off out of fear of hell. The muslims I know said teh sufis and 5%ers are going to hell lol

    • 786. . . wa laikum as salam!!! lol going to hell toooo funny ! it is sad than many muslims feel this way. know beyond the shadow of a doubt the Self is Allah. please see our new blog Drinking from the Source. from the sufi perspective only Allah can pray to Allah. Allah has said “remember Me and eye will remember you.” we call on Allah to invoke the Only power in the universe to aid and protect us in this world and the next.
