In the name Of Allah, the most compassionate most merciful.
The prophet related, that Allah the exalted has revealed: ' 'O My servants, I have made oppression forbidden for Myself and for you so do not oppress one another, O My servants, all of you are astray except those I have guided so seek guidance of Me and I shall guide you. O My servants , all of you are hungry except those I have fed so seek food of Me and I shall feed you. O My servants , all of you are naked except those I have clothed, so seek clothing of Me and I shall clothe you. O My servants, you sin by night and day, and I forgive all sins, so seek forgiveness of Me and I shall forgive you. O My servants, you will not attain harming Me so as to harm Me, nor will you attain benefiting Me so as to benefit Me. O My servants , were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to be pious as the most pious heart of any one man of you , that would not increase My kingdom in anything. O My servants, were the first of you and the last of you the human of you and the jinn of you to be the wicked as the most wicked heart of any one man of you, that would not decrease My kingdom in anything.
O My servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to gather in one place and each one would make a request of Me, and I shall fulfil each one's request, that would not decrease from My kingdom, anymore than a needle would decrease the sea if dipped into it.
O My servants, it is but your deeds that I reckon up for you and then recompense you for, so whomever finds good should praise Allah, and whoever finds other than that blame no one but themselves.'
May Allah bestow His mercy on us and guide us, and forgive us, ameen
It seems like a complex blessing. What is jinn in English? I think that have we to have a better understanding of the wording we could understand this a little more.
It does seem similar to the Sermon on the mountain of Jesus in some ways.
I see it says even the most pious do not increase God's kingdom. This is because the standards of God are impossible to live up to. As it says in the Bible no one will get into Heaven by good deeds.
Good deeds please God and he rewards us for them but there is no pleasing God to the point of entrance to Heaven. It can not be bought by people worshipping or praising or doing enough good deeds. The price was paid for us, we just have to accept it.
I have reread it and even when I change Jinn to Genie the main message stays.
Thank you for sharing your beliefs ... i was brought up as a catholic though it has been many years that i no longer practice ... for me the teachings are similar to those of many other spiritual leaders ... what i learn from your posting is the significance and importance of communicating our beliefs and different points of view ... this question could have been worded "would you like to follow this spiritual leader?" ... :)
