The Meaning of BARZAKH
Barzakh is an Arabic word which means an
isthmus or a partition. The word is mentioned in The Holy Quran (Al Furqan verse 53), which refers to an isthmus, a narrow piece of land
between two oceans. According to a Sufi the two oceans symbolize
the ocean of God's Absoluteness and the ocean of Nature's
Relativity, while the isthmus symbolizes a Perfect Moslem.
Following this concept, a Perfect Moslem is the one who has the
awareness of God's Absoluteness and Nature's Relativity in his
heart, so that along with his physical activity and creativity,
his spiritual form never stops prostating to God to seek His Love
The meeting of the two oceans also represented in the story of Moses' encounter with Khidr in The Holy Quran (Al Kahfi verses 60-82). Moses symbolizes the Nature's Relativity, while Khidr symbolizes God's Absoluteness.
Given the name Barzakh, the Foundation hopes that it will always submit itself to God in its strugle to serve the community.
