You cannot operate outside of the divine grid and divine will. It is not possible. I didn’t previously understand what was meant by “no fear no grief” in Islam. I think I do now.
You are encompassed by Allah. He is with you and closer than your jugular vein, around you beside you and situated on a throne above you. His power is such that your life is not your life. You are suspended on a string hanging from His will. Nothing belongs to you; everything you own including your body and everything you lay eyes on, hear and touch are His materials.
You can do what makes you afraid therefore, fundamentally because you are surrounded and propped up by safety and power. Likewise there is no grief…nothing is a loss, everything is a gain…in a spiritual ecosystem we can’t see. Nothing to grieve about disproportionately…You are so safe.
Power and consequently safety is before, behind, above and below you and you breathe it in and out. No fear no grief. Only divine unbreakable power when you make the All-mighty Allah, Light of the worlds your shield and refuge.
I am pretty sure this is the state Malcolm attained: “I have no fear whatsoever of anybody or anything”.
“No fear no grief” is a divine promise and taxonomy depicting the righteous human’s condition in relation to worldly circumstance…an objectively factual equation explaining our reality once we relate dialectically and eventually operate in harmony with the mysteries of the created universe. It provides a framework for what is happening behind the shroud of matter which we can adjust and ascend to in order to live as Allah intended us to. Without fear. Without grief.
