Chapter Summary

Al-Dabbāgh talks about the column of light that extends from a Friend of God's grave upward to his spirit in Barzakh. The Well-appointed House is normally conceived of as being in the seventh heaven. This is because people restrict themselves to the area where the noble dome is located. The dome is where the Prophet and those close to him reside. Barzakh is made up of holes that contain the spirits. The Qur͗ān says the gates of heaven are closed to infidels but the bottom of Barzakh is located in the lowest heaven. Al-Lamaṭī gives an example of how individuals who have a blue thread can change by associating with the people of felicity, i.e. those destined for Paradise. Higher parts of Barzakh are dressed in the lights of the believers' spirits.
