Islam i traslatio, eas suissio doest ea it i suittig to a searh ut i the
sense of peace) and Muslim is one who finds peace in the submission to god
Islam is primordial faith, everything in the universe submits to the will of God because that is its
primordial will (leaves, rocks, everything).
Faith is considered to be the natural way of things, humans are born into the natural faith in god
and purity, since human beings have choice they are required to confirm their submission to
god. And when their time is ended they will be judged and those that confirmed it will be
rearded ad those that didt ill e puished
Three main areas of Islamic thought
1. The unity of God expressed in the shahadah la ilaha illa Allah; there is no god but The [One] God
Mohammed rasul Allah Mohammed is the Messenger of God. (this is the outward expression
of the muslim identity)
2. Prophecy Mohammed is considered by Muslims to be the last of the Prophets. (throughout
time god has sent prophets with the same message)
3. Eschatology the knowledge or study of the end times.
(The internal expression of Muslim identity is really a matter of the heart)
Mohammad was born in Mecca, first revelatory vision fro the agel Gariel, Qura is osidered to e
a fulfilment of biblical prophecy. Mecca was an oasis in the desert, a natural stopping place for all the
trading vans. Held the Kaa, was said to be built by Abraham and one of his sons (one whose mom was
Hagar) one of the most sacred places
(Surah 81:114)
When the sun is shrouded in darkness,
when the stars are dimmed,
when the mountains are set in motion,
when pregnant camels are abandoned,
when wild beasts are herded together,
when the seas boil over,
when souls are sorted into classes,
when the baby girl buried alive is asked for what sin she was killed,
when the records of deeds are spread open,
when the sky is stripped away,
When Hell is made to blaze and Paradise brought near: then every soul will know what it has brought
about.
Spirit and Soul
Nafs the Soul, the inner self of the person
Ruh the Divine Spirit, the life-breath of God that animates the person

Cosmology in Islam: the macrocosm
Jinn said to be made out of fine so they are like halfway between the light and darkness, not quite
external world, but they appear so they are not invisible. Imaginal because they are like the dream but
have some reality to it but not completely reality
Imaginal
Something that can appear in any kind of shape or form like the Jinn
Also, something which appears in a form that shows its meaning like a dream tiger might show
the meaning of power or a dream monster might show the meaning of anger or fear.
The human being as microcosm (like greater cosmos, this is the microcosm)
Body, Spirit, and Soul
Soul is the meeting place of body and spirit, represents the (divine) qualities a person has developed
