The Centrality of the Divine Feminine in Sufism
"The Divine Feminine has always been present in Islam. This
may be surprising to many people who see Islam as a
patriarchal religion. Maybe the reason for this
misconception is the very nature of the feminine in Islam.
The Divine Feminine in Islam manifests metaphysically and in
the inner expression of the religion. The Divine Feminine is
not so much a secret within Islam as She is the
compassionate Heart of Islam that enables us to know
Divinity. Her centrality demonstrates her necessary and
life-giving role in Islam.
Sûfîsm, or as some would define it"mystical Islam"has
always honored the Divine Feminine. Of course, Allah has
both masculine and feminine qualities, but to the Sûfî,
Allah has always been the Beloved and the Sûfî has always
been the Lover. The Qur'ān, referring to the final Day,
perhaps divulges a portion of this teaching: "And there is
manifest to them of God what they had not expected to
Islam is aniconic. In other words, images, effigies, or
idols of Allah are not allowed, although verbal depiction
abounds. There was a question long debated in Islam: can we
see Allah? The Prophet said in a hadīth," In Paradise the
faithful will see Allah with the clarity with which you see
the moon on the fourteenth night (the full moon)."
Theologians debated what this could mean, but the Sûfîs have
held that you can see Allah even in this world, through the
"eye of the heart."The famous Sûfî martyr al-Hallaj said in
a poem," ra'aytu rabbi bi-'ayni qalbî" (I saw my Lord with
the eye of my heart). Relevant to the focus of this paper is
that Sûfîs have always described this theophanic experience
as the vision of a woman, the female figure as the object of
ru'yah (vision of Allah)....
Among the Ghulat there is much respect paid to the Divine
Feminine. In the Ghulat group the Ahl-i-Haqq ("The People of
Truth"), the Divine Feminine appears as the Khātūn-i Qiyāmat
(Lady of Resurrection) who also is manifested as the
mysterious angel Razbar (also Ramzbar or Remzebar). The
writer, Frédéric Macler, claims that the name Razbar is of
Arabic origin and means"secret of the creator."
The term qiyāma literally means," rising"of the dead, and
allegorically, it implies an idea denoting the rising to the
next spiritual stage, and qiyāmat-i qubra (great
resurrection) means an attainment of the highest degree when
a man becomes free from the ties of external laws, whom he
shackles and transfigures into spiritual substance, which
rejoins its divine sources."The King of the World was
sitting on the water with His four associate angels (chahār
malak-i muqarrab) when they suddenly saw the Pure Substance
of Hadrat-i Razbar, the Khātūn-i Qiyāmat (Lady of the
Resurrection). She brought out from the sea a round loaf of
bread (kulūcha), and offered it to the King of the World. By
His order they formed a devotional assembly (jam),
distributed the bread, offered prayers and exclaimed 'Hū!'
Then the earth and the skies became fixed, the skies being
Another rendition of the emergence of the Lady of the
Resurrection is as follows: "After this the Holder of the
World and Creator of Man looked upon 'Azra'īl with the eye
of benefaction, and 'Azra'īl became split into two parts,
one exactly like the other, and from between these parts a
drop of light emerged in the form of a loaf of kulūcha
bread. The Creator then said, I appoint that person (sūrat)
who became separated from 'Azra'īl to be the Lady of the
Resurrection (Khātūn-i Qiyāmat), who will on the
Resurrection Day be the helper of human beings."

for the first time in this form to do this tremendous task."

you ask a fanatic about another religion he'll say that's
the worst religion, his is the best. And you ask the another
fanatic, he will say his is the best, the rest of it is the
worst. That means all of them are the worst, in a general
opinion. Everybody seems to be the worst, all the fanatics
are the worst, if you take a general consensus. You see

have been 124,000 prophets, while the Holy Koran contains
only about 25 names, among them being several non-Biblical
prophets. Prophets Hud and Salih came in Arabia, Luqman in
Ethiopia, a contemporary of Moses (generally known as Khidzr)
in Sudan, and Dhu-i-Qarnain (Darius I, who was also a king)
in Persia; all of which is quite in accordance with the
theory of universality of prophethood, as enunciated above.
And as the Holy Koran has plainly said the prophets have
appeared in all nations and that it has not named all of
them, which in fact was unnecessary and not even feasible.
Thus a Muslim must accept the great luminaries who are
recognized by other religions as having brought light to
them, regardless of the terminology used to describe them,
as the prophets that were sent to those nations.
The Koran, however, not only establishes a theory that
prophets have appeared in all nations; it goes further and
renders it necessary that a Muslim should believe in all
those prophets. In the very beginning we are told that a
Muslim must "believe in that which has been revealed to
Abraham and Ishmael and Issac and Jacob and the tribes, and
in that which was given to Moses and Jesus, and in that
which was given to the prophets from their Lord, we do not
make distinction between any of them" (2:136). The word
"prophets" in this verse from the Koran clearly refers to
the prophets of other nations.
Again and again, and in different contexts, the Holy Koran
speaks of Muslims as believing in all the prophets of God
and not in the Holy Prophet Mohammad alone: "Righteousness
is this that one should believe in Allah and the last day
and the angels and the books and the prophets" (2:177). And
again in the same surah (chapter): "The Prophet believes in
what has been revealed to him from His Lord and so do the
believers; they all believe in Allah and His angels and His
books and His prophets: And they say 'We make no distinction
between any of His prophets' " (2:28)."
The Last Judgment and Resurrection (Al-Qiyamah) is
the final battle between the forces of Good vs Evil.
At the heart of this struggle is the Great Message
of the Quran and Bible, the Great Event ordained for
all humanity. The forces of Shaiytan (Evil) will
lure you away from believing the Great Message of
the Divine Feminine. So take care and do not be
influenced by their disbelieve and wicked
whisperings against the Divine Feminine Shri Mataji
Nirmala Devi sent to deliver it!

Adi Shakti (Hinduism), Comforter/Holy Spirit (Christianity),
Shekinah (Judaism), Ma Adi/Ruh (Islam), Mai Treya
(Buddhism), Great Mother (Taoism) and Aykaa Mayee (Sikhism)
are the one and same primordial Divine Feminine. Mahdi is
the Sanskrit contraction of Ma (Mother) Adi (Primordial) in
the same way Maitreya is contraction of Mai (Mother) Treya
(Threefold). The function of the Islamic Mahdi is similar to
that of the Buddhist Maitreya and Christian Comforter.
As the Comforter promised by Lord Jesus She completes His
teachings and commences the Last Judgment. "The coming
eschatological salvation is envisaged in transcendent and
universal terms. ... in the form of both bodily resurrection
and of spiritual immortality." (Aaron-Golan, The Illustrated
As Mahdi (Guided One) She announces the Great News of the
Resurrection (surah 75 Al-Qiyamah). "Great News: usually
understood to mean the News or Message of the Resurrection."
(Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'an)
As Maitreya She fulfils the prophecy to complete Buddha's
work before this auspicious age of Kali Yuga, in which he
appeared, runs its course.
As Shakti of the Sanatana Dharma She embraces all religions
and synthesizes them into a single shared path.
For more than three decades Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi has
declared and explained in detail the Great Event ordained
for all humanity - the Last Judgment and Resurrection -
which promises both bodily resurrection (kundalini
awakening) and spiritual immortality (moksa).
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi is the

all humanity: "It is but a reminder unto all beings, and you
