What is Zahir X Batin?

Posted on

The first structure to understand about the world is the duality of Zahir and Batin, that there is an apparent world which we see and feel, and a hidden world which we can only apprehend with our minds and hearts. Beginning with what is closer at hand, we can physically see and feel our own bodies and at the same time have an inner awareness of ourselves and our thinking, but we cannot employ our physical sense to touch our thoughts or see our feelings. From this microcosmic level, the duality applies also to the universe. Just as our physical bodies abide in this material world of Zahir, Nasir teaches that the non-physical part of our beings whether called soul or mind or heart – resides in the spiritual universe of the Batin, to which in fact it yearns to return, to regain its proper home. Thus, the ultimate journey is the journey of the soul which starts here and now, in this world. And for Nasir Khusraw this is not mere philosophy but a personal statement of faith.
