My disciples are not concerned with heaven or hell. They find themselves confronted with the ideal of realisation of Truth – God – Divinity. The gnosis of God is impossible for anyone to attain without the help of a Murshid (Master), and the Sufi world insists upon the need of a Master in unmistakeable terms.
By one’s own unaided exertions, one either creates heaven or hell, and both are limiting and binding. Heaven represents the result of too many good actions (neki), and hell is the outcome of too many bad actions (badi). In order to attain Najaat (Mukti, Liberation), a correct balance of good and bad actions must be struck. The credit and debit side of good and bad actions must cancel each other, and the balance sheet must show zero on both sides. This result can only be brought about by a Master. If left to individual efforts, one or the other side must predominate, bringing in its wake the situation known to the laity as heaven or hell.
