The life of this world has left them behind, but they have reached endless life. What have they lost by being released from this world’s abasement? They have reached union with the exaltedness of the Patron.
2:154 Say not of those who are slain in the path of God, “They are dead.” No, they are alive, but you are unaware.
Alive is the one who lives through Him, not through the spirit. Whoever comes to life in the Godfulness, lives forever.”O Lord, if someone is occupied with You, how could his occupation come to an end? When someone lives through You, how could he ever die? Alive, in reality, is he who lives with You. God’s praise is on that slain concerning whom the King says that they are alive.”
“The cloak of awe is on the shoulders of their exaltedness, the shadow of the Tremendous Throne is their resting-place of closeness, and the Presence of the Real’s majesty is the place of their spirit’s repose, in a seat of truthfulness, at an Omnipotent King” [54:55].
