Niches 

#23 The Niche of the Earth

“O my servants who have believed, my earth is spacious, therefore Me alone you shall worship.” [Quran 29:56]

 

Your body is in reality the “spacious earth” in which the Real (Al-Ḥaqq) has commanded you to worship Him.

 

This is because He only commands you to worship Him throughout His earth as long as your spirit resides in the earth of your body.

 

Thus, if you should be parted from it, you are no longer held to account, though your body remains on the earth and is buried in it.

 

Hence, you come to know that the earth in actuality is none other than your body, and He has made it “spacious” in terms of what it encompasses of faculties and meanings.
