MAN is considered from two points of view

MAN is considered from two points of view:
[1] his material being
[2] and his spiritual being.
In the appearance of material being everyone is more or less equal. Therefore, in this respect, one may apply to humanity general laws. In his spiritual being, hidden behind his appearance, each person is different. Therefore special private laws apply to him.
Man in accordance with general laws, by following certain steps can return to his origin. To take these steps, he follows the evident ordinances of our religion as a guide; following them, he advances. Rising from level to level he may reach the stage of the spiritual path passing into the realm of wisdom. That is a very high state. The Prophet صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم praises this state, saying,
“There is a state in which all and everything is gathered — and it is the divine wisdom.”
