Indeed, Pharaoh exalted himself in the land and made its people into factions, oppressing a group among them, slaughtering their sons and keeping their females alive. Indeed, he was of the corrupters. (28:4)
Pharoah is Samael, Iblis, the Satanic God of Fear, Confusion, Illusion, Law. But, like all of Creation, he is “of God”, he is formed from Love. What is his evil? It is to exalt himself, to recite the Pharonic shahada: “There is no God but Me”. In doing so, he identifies himself and divides the Love into sectors. What does it mean to slaughter the sons of the people? It means to halt (temporarily) the process of inheritance, from parent to son. What does it mean to retain the females? It is to keep only the fields of culture, but not to access these fields, not to tend them nor to render them generative. It is to halt the process of inheritance, from mother to child: by identifying the mother as “mother”, a static particle/entrapment rather than a waveform of resonance.
And We wanted to confer favor upon those who were weak in the land and make them Imams and make them inheritors (28:5)
Note 2: The mother of Moses
And We inspired to the mother of Moses, “Suckle him; but when you fear for him, cast him into the river and do not fear and do not grieve. Indeed, We will return him to you and will make him [one] of the messengers.” (28:7)
The mother of Moses, the Womb, the Kitab, nurses the Prophecy with her milk. But fear — the distancing function of the human mind — causes him to be born, and cast out into the river. But it is a fearless fear, there is no grief: because he will be returned to the womb. Because messaging is a bidirectional functor of Love.
And the heart of Moses’ mother became empty. She was about to disclose him had We not bound fast her heart that she would be of the believers. (28:8)
The source of the Womb becomes empty, so there is nothing left. Nothing. But belief is a binding of Love, around nothingness, a shell of nothingness, that encloses, protects, does not disclose: in its coherence with Love (while when rendered Pharonic priviledged signification, as the shell and nothing but shell, it becomes evil).
Note 3: Moses and murder
And he entered the city at a time of inattention by its people and found therein two men fighting: one from his faction and one from among his enemy. And the one from his faction called for help to him against the one from his enemy, so Moses struck him and killed him. [Moses] said, “This is from the work of Satan. Indeed, he is a manifest, misleading enemy.” (28:15)
The city, Moses, the two men: they are all you. Moses enters the city, the multiplicity of you. Wherein are the factions, the divisions of Love established by Pharoah. And Moses engages with the multiplicity: taking a side, within himself. It is the primordial mistake, the Prophetic fall. It is an inevitable mistake, an event 3 seconds into the creation of the universe, the fracturing and the scattering of Light.
Prophecy stumbles, stutters (a cosmic stutter, doubling, factionalizing fractures) when Prophecy is written down within the signs of a material Qur’an, the pages you hold in your hand, the material that you perceive, eat, smell drink and breath. The broken, relativized signs of the system: power. Prophecy stumbles when he engages with power.
But his descent, his inscription into life: this is ordained by Love and so the stumbling, though Satanic, is a logical (fractured, fracturing) consequence of Love’s enunciation.
Note 4: Signs of the wise Book
These are signs of the wise Book … (31:2)
The signs are a flow of Life from the father (H-K-M) to the Womb/Book (K-T-B).
… as guidance and mercy for the doers of good who establish prayer and give zakah, and they, of the Hereafter, are certain. Those are on guidance from their Lord, and it is those who are the successful..
The signs flow forth from the Book, downward, through guidance (logic on the left side) and mercy (love on the right side), balanced by the foundational establishment of a diamond dialectic between prayer and victory. It runs, by a triad: prayer (martyrdom, slavery) and zakah (charity into immanence), into a state of certainty (the Bride of immanence). But then into success/victory on the right. The signs flow forth from the Book, downward, then in circularity of dialectic, to devise (and so pass through) a skeletal network of nodes, the skeleton of understanding, immanent reception/comprehension/living/reading.
Note 5: Luqman
And We had certainly given Luqman wisdom, “Be grateful to Allah.” And whoever is grateful is grateful for himself. And whoever denies – then indeed, Allah is free of need and Praiseworthy. (31:12)
Luqman is granted wisdom, H-K-M. He is granted life of the father.
There is a tension between Creator and created: be grateful to Allah — but gratitude is gratitude for the self. Gratitude is life, because life is wisdom flowing down into impossibility, reciprocated enunciation of Love (necessarily a flux, a fluctuation). Gratitude is existence, in fluctuating sparks across a field of impossibility: denial is non-existence — it’s the Truth, in that sense — “God alone”, free of the self’s existence.
Luqman’s wisdom is his immanent capture of wisdom’s flux, reproduced now into a soul-line, lineage as karmic gnosis:
And when Luqman said to his son while he was instructing him, “O my son, do not associate with Allah . Indeed, association is great injustice.” (31:13)
There is a tension (of high irony) here: because Luqman is almost God the Father here, the son is almost God the Son. And the mother is almost the mother Goddess, within which two years are required for the full skeletal frame to develop (1 leg for each year, a dialectic of slavery/messaging that enables the frame independence of walking, the externalization of the inner milk):
And We have enjoined upon man for his parents. His mother carried him, in weakness upon weakness, and his weaning is in two years. Be grateful to Me and to your parents; to Me is the destination. (31:14)
But these signs, Luqman, the son, the mother’s womb: these are still Life locked within signs, not gratitude flowing forth. They are a primordial fantasy: the circuitry is apparition.
But if they endeavor to make you associate with Me that of which you have no knowledge, do not obey them but accompany them in world with appropriate kindness and follow the way of those who turn back to Me . Then to Me will be your return, and I will inform you about what you used to do. (31:15)
The parental waveform, as signed, as captured, exists in tension of association. As captured, it is religious iconography, which is power, which is association. The symbolic womb (any symbolism of the womb laid out in this sentence, including the womb soon to be mentioned as object) is still subordinate to the “true” Real Womb of Knowledge.
Luqman is H-K-M signed (immanentized) in his symbolic embodiment of this tension, a continual rejection, deferral of attachment to the shell, a a continual deferral of meaning back through the transformative functor of his own situation, to the Mother, to the Father, to H-K-M. And so Love to the Ineffable Lover is expressed.
