Please find below some quotes of Ahmed Hulusi from his Book, The Revelation. Last week, I shared these quotes with a person from Brooklyn, NY. She asked me what made me go through my treatment, and what made me stick through my treatment?
I still remember the day treatment team was making a decision about my future, it was the most difficult day of my life. I was so ill but I was determined not to go through weight gain program. First week in hospital, I was given a choice, whether I wanted to continue with the treatment or not, and I desperately wanted to say NO, but I didn’t.
My mother had left her very ill mother bbehind in Islamabad to be with me. It was her 7th month in England, and I was simply deteriorating, showing no signs of improvement, the out-patient treatment was not working. It’s during those times, you pick up Qur’an and read it and try to understand what Allah is saying to you through His book and you realise you’ve no choice but to go for treatment, such self-destruction is not allowed in Islam. Same night I picked up Ahmed Hulusi’s book and came across these quotes. I wrote them down and just last week, I found them in my Recovery Box. SO I thought, I’ll share them with all of you.
Recovery is never out of reach, no matter how hopeless your situation seems. Change is possible with the treatment and support, and by addressing the root cause of your illness. Don’t give up—even if you’ve tried and failed before. The road to recovery often involves bumps, pitfalls, and setbacks. But by examining the problem and thinking about change, you’re already on your way.
This quote by Ahmed Hulusi really made me look deeper into my limited self-beliefs.
We can classify the whole of mankind into two groups: one group would include those people who sincerely think about others in the same way as they think about themselves; the other group would include those people who place importance on their own status, and are always striving to serve their own selfish needs.
A human being could reach enlightenment simply by giving up all of his personal views and enlightenment.
“breakthroughs occur only when one is able to view things in a completely different, new way.”
― Ahmed Hulusi, Universal Mysteries
I am not my Eating Disorder- I am not different from others.
You can see yourselves as being different from us as much as you want, but in actual fact we are all together as one.
Say: “Everyone acts according to his own creation program (natural disposition)” [17. Al-Isra:84]
Eating Disorders and lack of Understanding of Mental Health issues
Those who cannot comprehend the Truth will of course will never be able to understand you; they will simply deny what you say, or criticize you. However, those who grasp the Truth will criticise no other person, nor will they find fault with anyone.
You should be communicating with every person according to his level of understanding.
Eating Disorder Desires
A person will ascend to the realm of Reality as soon as he gives up his desires, or whenever he shows equanimity in the face of changing fortunes. He will then ascend to the level of a servant of Allah, and will become totally content….
If you really want to say something worthwhile, get to know yourself first!
Eating Disorders, Low Self-Esteem, I am Worthless……
Consider the idea that those who have been created are either precious beings or they are worthless. This is an idea that is acceptable only to mere mortals. In the eyes of the Creator, however, there are neither precious beings nor any worthless beings. There are only those who He has created! “Good” and “Evil” are concepts that are perceived by different people in different ways. In the sight of the Creator, all beings are considered as one.
Beaware that no single creature has been created in an imperfect state. Those who assume that this is not the case merely demonstrate their limited understanding. all creation is perfect because of the following reason:
The beauty and the perfection of all Creation is directly linked with the fact that it serves the purpose for which it was created.
Always think about the reason why the world was created. Say to yourself: “The reason why I have been created is so that I can be of some purpose some day.”
Think,think, and think again. Even if you cannot reach the truth despite all your thoughts, you will atleast have been amongst those who can think.
Eating Disorders and Expectations
In every situation or circumstance, try at all times to be the one who offers!
But do your giving without expecting anything in return. Give no thought to what you will get in return. Especially try not to think what you will recieve from the Creator. For every single moment of your life, try to be the one mediates for the sake of doing good, without expecting anything in return.
Do Not Chose ED as your Companion
What being in all creation will never, ever, need someone else? only the Creator Himself. So choose him as your friend. Turn yourself towards Him, and tell Him of your needs, if He has not been informed of them already.
Neither feel proud nor trust anything that you may possess in this short lifetime.
Forgiveness Repentance Humility
Repentance is the state of being regretful
If your wrongful act has harmed any living creature, then compensate for the damage that you may have caused and try to make them happy, so that you could make up for your past mistakes.
Offering Relief to a Loved One
Providing an hour’s comfort to a sick person in the middle of the night is as good a deed as a thousand years of devout worship. Worshipping, however, is a far better activity than fretting away your time on pleasures, so allocate your spare time to somebody who is in need.
