Our job as Ansari Tariqa is mainly two things. One, to make sure that everybody understands the concept of God, which is,
Allah is the Nur [Light; Energy] of the universes and the earth. (Al Nur:35)
This means He is the Energy. And this fits His description: energy cannot be created or be destroyed.
We surely created the human being, and We know what their nafs [ego] whispers to them, and We are closer to them than their jugular vein. (Qaf:16)
So, the second thing we want to bring out is that everybody can have a relationship with Allah because Allah is within themselves and all you need is the consciousness of this and we teach how to be with Allah in every phase of your life. Because there is not a moment or a place where Allah is not there. And if there is a power, that is Allah’s power that He lent you or the other person or whatever you are watching. So whatever you are watching, you can find Allah there.
To be with Allah in all the phases of your life requires an intention. First, you need to intend that you want to do so. And why should you intend to do so? Because this is the purpose of your existence. The creation of you by Allah is to share His values with you so you will know, get to know Allah, and so the love between you and Him/Her/It will develop. Since Allah is Energy, there is no male or female or both. He is the one Who energizes the male or female or in between or whatever. So there is no gender in Allah. That is why we use Arabic word ‘Allah’ because there is no gender in that.
