Divine Greetings, Spirit, Gabriel, Wisdom


In the Arabic language, "spirit", "rah", "rih" means breath, pale, wind, breeze, smell (fragrance), comfort, The word "soul" is also used to mean knowing Allah, turning to Allah and loving Him. This is the relative proportion of the ‘nafs’, just as the proportion of the body to the body. The spirit that Almighty Allah supports parents and His obedient servants is the spirit of knowing Allah. There is a spirit of divine, benevolence, conversation, and orientation towards Allah. However, people in these spirits are very different from each other. While some people acquire spiritual identity due to the heavy pressure of this spiritual soul, some people fall to the animal level because they have lost their souls in the same spirit. The Qur'anic address to the Prophet (pbuh) is described as "soul" in various verses: "And thus We have revealed to you an inspiration of Our command. You did not know what is the Book or [what is] faith, but We have made it a light by which We guide whom We will of Our servants. And indeed, [O Muhammad], you guide to a straight path“ (Surah, 42/52) Expression of "soul" by the commentators; "revelation", "mercy", "inzal" and "order". Again, the phrase "Ruhu'l-Kuddus " also has a semantics directly related to divine appeal and inspiration. Different meanings have been appreciated, such as the mercy of the "soul", faithfulness, guidance, and help against the enemy, that Allah Almighty supports believers with a "spirit" from His own: "He has supported them with a soul from his own side". (Mücadele, 58/12) There is a relationship between the concepts of "sakinah", "soul", "Ruhu'l-Kuddus " in relation to the divine appeal-inspiration relationship. The means between the metaphysical realm and physical realm is either revelation or inspiration. The carrying element of this divine funeral is the angels, and the state of meeting with the divine addressee is considered as "sakinah" which we call "revelation covering state". In this declaration, the relations between the concepts of "divine address", "spirit", "Ruhu'l-Kuddus ", "order", "mercy" and "inzal" will be evaluated.
