Answer From ostad-mosavi.com : With greetings, We thank you because of your attention to our site's articles. فاما الذین امنوا و عملوا الصالحات فهم فی روضة یحبرون (Ayah 15 of the Holy Surah Rum) The word "یحبر" (yuhbar) means extreme joy caused by hearing beautiful sounds and music; that which is evident on the face. But this music or rhythmic sound is such that it is acceptable by the Holy Quran. There is a narrative in this regard: An Arab man saw Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), left his camel and came to the Holy Prophet and after exchanging greetings asked the Prophet, "Is there any music in Heaven?" The Prophet (PBUH) answered: � نعم ، باصوات لم تسمع الخلائق مثلها� Yes, no one has ever heard the likes of the music which exists in Heaven. The man then asked, "O Rasulullah! What is this music you talk about which causes so much excitement?" The Holy Prophet replied, "Even the breeze which touches the leaves produces a rhythm which causes extreme joy for the listener." The man asked, "What does it have that it causes so much joy?" Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: In its heart is hidden the melody of one secret and that is: لا اله الا الله، محمد رسول ا...، علی ولی ا...، الفاطمه عصمه الله است! There is no god but Allah, Muhammad is Rasulullah, Ali is Waliullah and Fatimah Ismatullah. The Prophet then continued, "If the people on Earth hear one of these tunes, they will instantly die because of extreme joy. This is how beautiful it is." Professor Mosavi: In the world of metaphysics all parts of man's body including his ears have extraordinary powers beyond this material world. (We suggest that you do more research on strengthening the powers of our body parts in the world of metaphysics) Source: Part of researches by esteemed philosopher, Professor Mosavi on Surah Rum (page 454) But on the subject of music, the word "music" in modern terms which is using an instrument is a means of revelry according to religious leaders and not only hearing but even looking at these instruments is disputable. Now we write about Pythagoras' music. Pythagoras was the son of Mnesarchus who was born around 570 BC. Some say he lived at the time of Prophet Solomon. Pythagoras said: و یدعا انه شاهد العوالم العلویه و بلغ فی الریاضه الی سمع حفیف الفلک I traveled to the celestial spheres. I have heard no rhythm more pleasant than the rhythm of the skies and seen no light brighter than the celestial bodies. His viewpoints in mathematics, unity of numbers and sound illumination are still being discussed in intellectual centers and universities in the East and West. Pythagoras was passing by a blacksmith shop. He realized that the contact of the smith's hammer on the anvil did not produce a uniform sound. Some had low rhythms and some high. Some were bass and some treble. He then understood that these differences were caused by the weight of the hammer and the intensity of each blow. Hence, he discovered a ratio between sounds and materials and called it "number". (We suggest that you do some research on what path his professor asked him to follow for discovering these facts when Pythagoras went to him.) Source: Part of researches by Professor Mosavi on Surah Hud (page 290 � Ramadan 1996) Therefore, the music or rhythms Pythagoras and similar scholars talked about have no connection with what is understood by modern music. (We suggest that you do some research on the sound Prophet Moses (PBUH) heard from Tur al-Ayman)

With Salaams, Is the law of attraction valid everywhere? Can we therefore conclude that it is true that "Heart speaks to heart"?

Although you have not written your complete name, we intend to give you a complete reply. It is better for us to try to find the true connection between two hearts from the connection between Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and Oveis Gharani not from imperfect human laws! We should try to find the law of attraction from the path of an enamored person that although he had not seen his beloved, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), with his eyes, the Prophet felt the fragrance of his love and favor from miles away. We will explain two events below; you may make any conclusion you want to. One morning Prophet Muhammad and a few of his companions were together. The Prophet looked around and said, "I smell the fragrance of blessing coming from Yemen." The companions of the Holy Prophet asked, "What is the story?" Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, "Oveis Gharani is thinking of me. That is why I smell his fragrance." This is the true meaning of connection between two hearts. But this is only the first stage of connection between hearts. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was in his deathbed. He suddenly said, "O Ali come, Salman come, Abu Zar come." He called a few others too. He then said, "Go and take my robe from my daughter, Fatimah and bring it to me." (The Holy Prophet wore this robe when he said his night prayers.) Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) told his companions, "After I pass away, you have the mission of taking my robe to Yemen. There is a dark-skinned camel-driver there who has two white patches on his skin; one on his right arm and the other on the palm of his hand." They asked, "Who is he?" The Holy Prophet replied, "His name is Oveis Gharani. He is the man who whatever event came upon me in my life, felt the effect at the same moment." He continued, "One day I was walking on the street. One of the people of Mecca threw ashes on my hand and the palm of my hand burnt. At the same time the palm of his hand turned white too!" "Another day while I was in prostration some people came and struck me on the arm. A spot was caused on his arm too." This is the meaning of true love. This is the basis for true companionship. Now you judge where the truth is and where we are!

The meaning of taqiyah is to say one thing although you have another purpose. When one does not have the courage to say the truth, taqiyah is permissible. It should be said that a prophet does not have the right of taqyiyah. The Imams, only under some conditions and when they think their religion, life or their followers are under threat had the right of taqiyah. One example of taqiyah was when Imam Sadiq (AS)told Mansur Dawaniqi: Oh cousin! Whatever people have told you about me is wrong. Another example of taqiyah was what Imam Reza (AS) told Mamun. Or what Imam Sajjad (AS) said after returning from Karbala. Therefore, the Imams had the right of taqiyah but not the prophets. But why should the Shiites be accused of taqiyah?

Answer from ostad-mosavi.com: The following is derived from the Booklet "The Tablet and the Pen (Lawh wa al-Qalam)" which is the outcome of teachings and researches of esteemed philosopher, Professor Mosavi regarding page 293 of Volume 6 of Mulla Sadra's book, Asfar. و اما اللوح و القلم فبیان القول بینهما ان الباری جلت کبریائه: اول ما برز من ذاته و نشأ هو جوهرقدسی فی غایه النور و الضیاء و السناء بعد الاول تعالی Wa amma al-Lawh wa al-Qalam fa bayanul qaul baynahoma anna al-bari jalat kibriyauhu: Awwala ma baraza min dhatihi wa nashaa huwa jawharun qudsi fi qayatin nur wa ziae wa sana bada al-awwali taala What Allah manifested first was the holy essence (Jawhar Qudsi) at the highest level of light! و نشأ بتوسطه جواهر الاخری قدسیه مترتبه فی الشرف و الکمال، و شده النوریه علی حسب ترتبها فی القرب منه (تعالی) Wa nashaa betawasutehi jawahir al-ukhra qudsiyatun motiratibatun fi sharafe wal kamal wa shidaton nuriya ala hasabe taratubiha fil qurbe menh (taala) And through the above mentioned, He created other holy essences (Jawahir Qudsi). It is thereafter emphasized that the order in being created is based upon nobleness, position and rank, perfection and closeness to Allah. But did this creation take place through the word "Kun" (Arise! Come into being!)? If so how did it take place? Or did creation take place during 6 days? Or was it in some other way? Mulla Sadra (May Allah exalt him) has discussed this in details in Volume 6 of Asfar pages 286 to 303. He says: "When Allah decided to create, He passed on His Beauty (Jamal), His Majesty (Jamal), His Magnificence and His Power to a light and that was the light of Wilayat of our Master (Maula) and our Leader (Muqtada), Imam Ali (AS) [up to our last Imam, Imam Mahdi (A.S.) who are all one single light]." Thereafter Mulla Sadra, based on some Ayat from the Holy Quran such as the Aya "Num wal-qalam wa ma yasturun", discusses the facts of Lawh wa al-Qalam (The Tablet and the Pen), Qada wa Qadar (Decree and Destiny) and Mahw wa Isbat (Wiping out or Registering Deeds) and asks "What was the first thing The Pen (Qalam) manifested?" Professor Mosavi, through 4 Booklets and around 400 pages, has provided his research on the above issues and the viewpoints of some scholars. These include the viewpoint of Reynold Nicholson on the self-manifestation of God in His Essence, Attributes, and Names (Tajallí), the opinion of Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi and the viewpoint of "Perfect Gnostics", who believe the illumination of the essence of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) was the first thing Allah created. On page 220 of Volume 2 of Asfar, Mulla Sadra explains the viewpoint of Sheikh Yahya Suhrawardi on the issue of whether Allah's Divine Will and Power is the cause of all creations, changes, growths, etc or does an intermediary cause also play a role? Sheikh Yahya Suhrawardi says: «فالقوه القاهره الواجبه لا تمکن الوسائط لوفور فیضه و کمال قوته» Fal Quwatul Qahera al-wajibahu la tumakin al-wasait liwufur feizehi wa kamala quwate. "The Light of Allah, the Essential Existence, is so strong that the role of an intermediary cause is overshadowed and one can not say that intermediaries are the main cause in creation!" In the book "The Philosophy of Illumination" by Sheikh Yahya Suhrawardi, Aristotle's viewpoint is mentioned as follows: The intermediary cause did not have any role by itself in creation but it received God's Blessings through closeness to Him and then this intermediary cause manifested itself. This was a brief answer to your question.

I do not know which differences of men and women you are specifically asking for. <1. There are differences in chromosomes, which can be xy or xx which relate to genetics. <>2. There are also differences from the aspect of physical strength, meaning which one is stronger and which one is weaker? <>3. Or maybe relating to their brain weight, which one has more and which one has less? <>4. Or probably the purpose of this question is their appearance. <>5. Or do you mean their differences based on anger and affection?
Q

bad event is the result of our own mistake

18
With greetings to great contemporary philosopher and Gnostic, I have a few questions for you:
Why do we say that any good event which happens arises from God’s Will and Kindness and any bad event is the result of our own mistakes?
Why do we sometimes feel that we have known a place very well for many years although we have never been to that place? Even sometimes when we meet a person, whom we do not know, for the first time, why do we have a feeling that we have known this person for many years?
