Kur’an Anlama Atölyesi

Kur’an Anlama Atölyesi

1. Kur’an Atölyesi Çalışmaları, mealleri eleştirel bir yöntemle okuyarak, mealin çağrışımından Kur’ân’ın ana sesine intikal ederek, Arapçanın canlı ve doğurgan akışına doğrudan katılarak Kur’ân’ı anlayabileceğimiz bir kapı aralamayı hedefliyor. 2. Mealler sorgulanamaz şeyler değildir. Çoğu mealde, Kur’ân’ı tarihsel bağlamda okuyan, vahye ölü metin muamelesi yapan, önceki meallerdeki şablonları tekrarlayan, kelimeleri canlı köklerinden koparıp öldüren özensizlikler […]

Said Nursi’yi Kaybettiğimiz Yerde Bulmak

Said Nursi’yi Kaybettiğimiz Yerde Bulmak

Said Nursi, uzunca bir süredir ısrarlı bir gölgelemenin konusu oldu. Said Nursi’nin ortaya koyduğu duru söylem kimi takipçileri tarafından içeri hapsedilirken, dışarıdan-bu takipçilerin hapsini gerekçe göstererek-ötekileştirildi. Said Nursi üzerine düşen koyu gölgenin kalkmaya başladığı bu kritik dönemeçte tarihe not düşmek adına söyleyeceklerim var. 1. Said Nursi, hakikati “insan” temeli üzerinden dillendirir. Bu, hem onun Eski […]

Yüzde Yüz Esmâ Tecellisi

Yüzde Yüz Esmâ Tecellisi

Garip değil mi? İçimizden bir insanın bir sabah aynaya bakmasını gazeteler manşet yaptı. Hepimiz heyecanla bekledik aynada kendi yüzüne bakacağı günü. Adı Uğur’du. Henüz yirmili yaşlarının eşiğinde. İçimizden biri. Bizim gibi. Bizden tek farkı, yüzünün “yeni” oluşu. Başarılı bir yüz nakli yapıldı Uğur’a. O sabah onca ağrıya sancıya, ameliyat zahmetine katlanarak sahip olduğu yüzüne aynadan […]

Mushaf

Mushaf

okunmayan kâğıt MUSHAF’tır okunan mushaf KUR’ÂN’dır anlaşılan Kur’ân BEYAN’dır yaşanılan Beyan İNSAN’dır. Mushaf alınır satılır, yerden biter Kur’an alınmaz satılmaz, gökten iner Beyan harfe sayfaya sığmaz, kalp(l)e taşınır İnsan kimseye benzemez, Resulullah diye tanışılır.

Duha Suresi Notları

Duha Suresi Notları

Aydınlık sabahı düşün, 2- ve durgun, karanlık geceyi 3- Rabbin seni ne unuttu ne de darıldı. Burada peygambere hitap vardır fakat bunu sadece bu şekilde anlarsak konu tarihi anmakla kalır. Hitap tüm insanlığadır. Ey Muhammed demiş olsaydı konu geçmişte kalırdı. Burda bugüne hitap ediyor(peygamberin bugünü, o zamanın bugünü, bizim bugünümüz) ”Vahiy biz’e ve ‘şimdi’ iniyor. (vahiyi […]

Fasting is tuning your heart towards God

Fasting is tuning your heart towards God

Fasting is keeping your bodily frame in the presence of God. Fasting is tuning your heart towards God. Fasting is unifying your intention with the sake of God. Fasting is keeping your intention and your deeds, and your words and your essence, on the same page. Fasting is keeping your heart on the side of […]

Divine Attributes are read through the eyes of fasting

Divine Attributes are read through the eyes of fasting

Fasting is a journey through the Divine Attributes. All those who fast, consciously or unconsciously, become a river of the Divine Attributes; their eyes, their hearts manifest new mysteries… Each state of the fast brings the person to the brink of a new manifestation. Fasting turns each person into a prism… with each light that […]

Those who fast begin to “read” the creation as a “book”

Those who fast begin to “read” the creation as a “book”

The first verse “Recite” (Alaq, 1) is revealed to the one who fast… The scattered is united; forgotten tastes awaken on the tongue of the one who fast… Time freezes. Space crystalizes. Gardens cease to be mere coincidence. Fruits are no longer haphazardly there. For the one who fast, all that used to be seen […]

Fasting is moving from the body to the heart

Fasting is moving from the body to the heart

When fasting, you moved beyond your body… began living the concerns of your soul. You have made the intention to fast… You put your bodily priorities on hold; prioritized your heart… You are in hurry to save your soul. The bodily veil over your soul is thinning and thinning. Your frame is melting as the […]

Fasting Fulfills Rumi’s Seven Counsels

Fasting is a sweet river, coming down from the holy mountain heights. It flows into you. It awakens the hidden seed of generosity in you. Your care for others, and your helpful attitude flourish.

You are walking on the sacred valley of Tuwa

You are walking on the sacred valley of Tuwa

You are fasting. Just like Moses “you are in the sacred valley of Tuwa.” (Sura 20/TaHa: 12). You have heard the voice calling: “I am your Lord” (TaHa, 12) and surrendered to your Lord. You don’t object to Him leaving you hungry and thirsty. You adjust yourself to your Lord’s wish. You have heard the […]

You are about to be saved from the hell of habit

You are about to be saved from the hell of habit

Fasting has come to liberate you from the hell of routine and habit. You thought things were available to you whenever you wish, and suddenly they moved out of your reach. You used to assume you own things, now you’ve lost your claims. You are not yours. Nothing is yours. You eat only in the […]

With Fasting You Become a Companion for Khidr

With Fasting You Become a Companion for Khidr

Fasting is Khidr (See Sura Kahf, 18:60-82) reaching out to you. Like Moses, you are walking side by side with Khidr now. This will be a difficult companionship. Things are happening, and you don’t get their wisdom yet. You crossed over the river together. Fasting made a hole in your ship that was to take […]

From the Hassle of Obtaining to the Serenity of Witnessing

From the Hassle of Obtaining to the Serenity of Witnessing

You withdrew your claims. You gave up ownership. You turned away from possessions, from things. You are about to learn how not to run after things to appropriate them. You declined on getting full. You started your day with the courage to say “no, thanks.” You said to water, bread and flesh: “I can do […]

A Staff of Moses

A Staff of Moses

Fasting is a staff of Moses. Once it touches, it undoes all the magic, swallows up all sorcery. You thought bread sustains you, turns out that it does not. With fasting, you see how the food bites all fall helpless. You thought water deceived you. Now you see, it cannot; it cannot even reach out […]

Be as much as You Intend, Not as much as You Look

Be as much as You Intend, Not as much as You Look

Ramadan is a time that transforms spaces. During Ramadan, every place is imbued with holiness. All towns become sacred. Each city becomes Mecca. Our homes are transformed into Medinas. Each face reminds of Kaba. And, all eyes host the tension between yearning and meeting. In Ramadan, one lives according to his intention. Fasting is intention […]
