SWEETSWORDS 108 [ The Fundamental Four ]
SWEETSWORDS 108 [ The Fundamental Four ]
Poga Humayun Dundiwala
Fitrath is the innate nature,
The pumping heart.
Nafs is the wanting desire,
The fuel conductor for carnal cart.
Aql is the intelligent auditor,
For the calculative mind.
Ruh is the conscious rope,
With the spiritual bind.
Poga Says in The Foolington Maze
Fitrath of innate idols,
And the Nafs of ambitious idolater.
Aql of mental patient,
And wisdom of spiritual doctor.
Fitrath of innate idols,
And the nature of mud.
Nafs cultivated plants,
And the desire of bud.
Aql of intelligence bee,
And Ruh of the beekeeper.
In the science of fundamentals,
And in the signs of nature.
Fitrath, Nafs, Aql and Ruh,
Your innate nature,
Intelligent mind and spiritual cue.
Fitrath, Nafs Aql and Ruh,
Me and you he and who.
All individual yet unified in aim,
In different stages and in different name.
All in one and one in all,
As mighty in tiny as great in small.
Awaluddin Marifathullah Says : In the Islamic body,
There are four state of mind.
The Fitrath The Nafs The Aql and The Ruhani kind.
There are four Khalifa for single Ummah,
Four Guru for single Islamic Dharma.
The instinct of being aware as Abu Baqar,
With the mind and intellect of Omar.
Unites with desires of Nafsi Osman,
And above all the soul that holds the criterion.
He is master of spirituality,
Ali Mortuza the most high.
The Father of the earth,
And the Son of the sky.
Mr Barzakh Fitrath Ullah : Between mud meat and wood.
A man in flesh declares I am above rest,
In my Salah and Sajud.
he speaks to God,
While sitting standing and at work.
He calls to his Lord,
In light and in dark.
Look at a dog,
Have seen him fasting for God.
When lying he is rolling and reeling,
When sitting he is resting and crawling.
When standing he runs jumps and bark.
But you will never see him in prostration,
Or doing any devotional work.
It is the station of Instinct and emotions,
Intelligence and spirituality.
What distinguish what is devotion,
And who is the devotee.
Don't you see the way of mud,
It too has needs of good and bad.
But essence that predominates his character,
That is the instinct of clay.
It doesn't have any desire to be mobile,
To up and go or run and play.
Then life that evolved is emotional vegetation.
Yet it doesn't have any desire,
For intellectual or philosophical discussion.
It too was created,
With earth water fire and air.
Yet only thing they desire,
How to survive to leave theirs botanical heir.
Yet they protect not theirs progeny at sight of stranger.
Have seen burning forest,
Where stationary trees running away from the danger.
Who do you see fight to kill theirs sibling in love and war.
Who else apart from animal,
Fighting for right to mate or for food for hunger.
Who uses theirs mind,
In Mud Wood and Animal.
Who else apart form one who holds heart,
To be the emotional.
Who else but animal crane,
Dies for beloved in separation pain.
But have seen any silent giraffe or laughing hyena.
Doing the meditation,
By Yogic Ashana.
This are quality's of men what sets them apart,
From rest of the creation.
You see it is not the Bodi tree
But it is the Buddha who does the meditation.
All animal have mind
But it is the men who holds the Ruh.
All animal makes the migration,
But it is the men who wears the shoe.
Have seen any monkey going for threads,
And the spider in need of a needle.
No but it is only the men who can web
With binding words the most enticing riddle.
Mrs Be Aql Khan Usta : So you are saying,
It is the men who holds the soul.
They alone hold God Consciousness,
And all the lesser beings have no spiritual purpose no goal.
This tiny virus,
And those titan argus.
The mighty tree,
And tiny grass.
All are soulless like shadow without solid.
They are just useful things for human need.
Mr Barzakh Fitrath Ullah : Every Athma have Paramathma,
Every Para have Pramishvar.
No solid liquid or air without it,
Because it is our inner core.
Soul is breath of Allah,
The only thing with direct link to the creator.
All soul must depart with body,
Due to its deadly nature.
And continue to live,
To bear the record.
That every living and dead is the immortal word.
And word don't die but continue to live as echo.
It vibrates from every side from high and low.
And creates the cubical wave,
In the circular the world of grave.
Yes every animal have soul,
But it is the human who makes the will.
By scrolls for reading,
And for writing the quill.
Have you seen any animal deals in share,
Cash for concubine and credit for heir.
Yes every thing is created,
With instinct and emotion,
Mind and the spiritual character.
[30:31Al Quran] And follow the nature made by Allah — the nature in which He has created mankind.
God is One and humanity is One. This is the Fitrat Allah or Dinal Fitrah - the religion which is rooted in the nature of man and to which he conforms and instinctively reacts. It is in this religion that a child is born but his environment, the ideas and beliefs of parents and the training he receives from them subsequently make him a Jew, a Magian or a Christian. (Sahih Bukhari)
“Indeed the nafs that overwhelmingly commands a person to do sin.” (12:53 Al Quran)
Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The strong are not those who defeat people. Rather, the strong are those who defeat their ego.”

Surely the worst of beasts in God’s sight are those that are deaf and dumb and do not reason. (8:22 Al Quran )
Do not let yourselves become blind followers, saying that if the people are good then we will be good, and if they are unjust then we will be unjust. Rather, make up your own minds. If the people are good then be good, but if they are evil then do not be unjust.

When your Lord said to the angels; Surely I am going to create a mortal from dust: So when I have made him complete and breathed into him of My spirit, then fall down making obeisance to him. (38:71-72
“The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), who is the most truthful (of human beings) and his being truthful (is a fact) told us: ‘The constituents of one of you is gathered in his mother’s womb for forty days, then it becomes a clot of blood within another period of forty days. Then it becomes a lump of flesh, and forty days later, Allah sends His angel to it to breathe into it the soul. The angel comes with instructions concerning four things, so the angel writes down his livelihood, his death, his deeds and whether he will doomed or blessed.” (Reported by Muslim, 1528).
