The Body As An Allegory

The Contact Prayers: Gift From God
[14:40] "My Lord, make me one who consistently observes the Contact Prayers (Salat), and also my children. Our Lord, please answer my prayers.
We are commanded to say “Bismillah”, In the Name of God, before eating. This practice has the same format as the Salat, when we stand before GOD and recite the Fateha, beginning with Bimillah and thus feeding our souls, by God’s Grace. This Bimillah, and remembrance of GOD, renders our food nutritious for the soul. If we don’t give our bodies the right nutrition, we suffer.
[6:121] Do not eat from that upon which the name of GOD has not been mentioned, for it is an abomination. The devils inspire their allies to argue with you; if you obey them, you will be idol worshipers.
[74:42-3] “What brought you to this retribution?” They will say, “We did not observe the contact prayers (Salat).
Thus, God has designed the human body, out of His Mercy, to be an allegory for what’s happening to our souls in the other dimension, and teach us what we never knew. Sadly, only the reverent will take heed.
A condition called congenital analgesia is where the human body is indifferent or insensitive to pain. When they get injured, they do not feel any pain, so they don’t respond. This includes bone fractures, oral cavities, scarring, etc. Since the infections go unnoticed, the person is prone to harmful diseases. I began thinking of congenital analgesia for the soul, and how the majority have it, but they do not perceive.
[2:11-2] When they are told, “Do not commit evil,” they say, “But we are righteous!” In fact, they are evildoers, but they do not perceive.
[3:117] The example of their accomplishments in this life is like a violent wind that hits the harvest of people who have wronged their souls, and wipes it out. GOD never wronged them; it is they who wronged themselves.
The pain is there but they don’t feel it. However, it will show up all at once in the Hereafter.
[3:56] “As for those who disbelieve, I will commit them to painful retribution in this world, and in the Hereafter. They will have no helpers.”
The pain of the soul is in the form of unhappiness in this world; however, in the Hereafter it is much more real, and everlasting.
Our Senses and Muscles
A study published in the Journal of Neuroscience, explored the phenomenon of cross-modal neuroplasticity. This phenomenon states that when the brain is deprived of input in one sensory modality, it is capable of reorganizing itself to support and augment other senses.
In layman’s English, if you are born deaf, your other senses are heightened.
Our existence in this world is designed to mute all senses when it comes to GOD and only keep one sense active, the sense of belief. In this world, we are born without physically seeing GOD, without hearing him like Moses did, and without touching GOD, Most Glorified.
[2:3] who believe in the unseen, observe the Contact Prayers (Salat)…
[7:143] When Moses came at our appointed time, and his Lord spoke with him, he said, “My Lord, let me look and see You.” He said, “You cannot see Me. Look at that mountain; if it stays in its place, then you can see Me.” Then, his Lord manifested Himself to the mountain, and this caused it to crumble…
We rely completely on our sense of belief, faith as they call it. It’s belief in GOD without physically seeing, touching, or hearing Him that we rely on. This places the entire load of navigating our existence on belief alone.
If belief was a muscle, it would get one heck of a work out, and this world would be its gym. It is an efficient set-up for the soul to develop in the shortest amount of time. This is the easiest path, praise God.
[87:8] We will direct you to the easiest path.
[10:9] As for those who believe and lead a righteous life, their Lord guides them, by virtue of their belief. Rivers will flow beneath them in the gardens of bliss.
[2:4] And they believe in what was revealed to you…
[42:51] No human being can communicate with GOD except through inspiration, or from behind a barrier, or by sending a messenger through whom He reveals what He wills. He is the Most High, Most Wise.
May God keep us eating from His good provisions, commemorating Him frequently, and observing Him continuously, God willing.

[69:24] Eat and drink happily in return for your works in days past.
[6:137] Thus were the idol worshipers duped by their idols, to the extent of killing their own children. In fact, their idols inflict great pain upon them, and confuse their religion for them. Had GOD willed, they would not have done it. You shall disregard them and their fabrications.
[16:78] GOD brought you out of your mothers' bellies knowing nothing, and He gave you the hearing, the eyesight, and the brains, that you may be appreciative.
