The quintessential spirit of Islam adorns the Universe like light itself, wherever one turns it is right there, even in the deepest obscurity, it is there, present of all its gentleness. The Cosmos reflects the Islamic spirit with perfection so in truth there is no excuse for us to stray from the observance of authentic Islam: a constant reality.
The first Light (saw) created remained in a state of prostration before his Creator Allah (swt) as his very first activity; we all were created from this prostrating light’s state so it is only natural to return to it.
As humans we omit to turn our sight upward where celestial bodies exude their emphatic testimony of Surrender, of Islam to The Most Beautiful. Our immediate environment, Nature reflects its Islam as well so the Cosmic Muslim spectacle cannot be missed unless our heart is sealed by the Divine Will itself.
The music of the spheres is also a sign of this Cosmic Islam we tend to be distracted from, no one can be unmoved by this Sound of praise that pervades us all knowingly or not, we are indeed instruments made to echo this sonar luminousness. This is the reason why the Sound of the Qur’an has such a miraculous effect upon sensible beings, it’s a Reminder of the sublime Station they innately belong to and this Remembrance deeply resonates with them, it completes them… it is such a pristine, nurturing experience, that the wise ones live to bask in those moments; all this for the sake of Allah (swt) only.
Love and grace pervade the quintessence of Islam, they can never be extracted from it even after centuries of historical schemes or deliberate human misrepresentation, Islam is a multidimensional reality that continually circulate from the Upper parts of the Worlds seen and unseen, all the way to their lower parts so it’s present and intact by the permission of Allah (swt).
The greatest threat to self-serving forces on Earth is the integrity of this transcendent Islam because if sincerely observed, it can progressively lead mankind to complete Freedom and therefore to independence from all false systems that thrive through repression of the light of humanity. Islam pulls mankind toward its full potential, it allows us to follow the prophets’ (as) footprints which implies living in and with the Truth that sustains the Universe.
Eventually this state of beingness in Surrender/Islam cannot be avoided, at some point it’s always acknowledged, be it through life or through the rude awakening of death, it’s only a matter of time before we embrace our state of Islam anew… Even our galaxy fully exists in that Islamic state of grace, look at the most powerful star of our system: the Sun, do you perceive its unending praising of Allah (swt) as it rises and sets in cycles? This is Islam!

“Allah is He Who raised the heavens without any pillars that ye can see; is firmly established on the throne (of authority); He has subjected the sun and the moon (to his Law)! Each one runs (its course) for a term appointed. He doth regulate all affairs, explaining the signs in detail, that ye may believe with certainty in the meeting with your Lord.” ~ Qur’an 13: 2
“He has made subject to you the Night and the Day; the sun and the moon; and the stars are in subjection by His Command: verily in this are Signs for men who are wise.”
