Divine Trust (Amanat e Elahiya) in Quran
In the Holy Quran, Allah Almighty says about His sacred Divine Trust:
اِنَّا عَرَضۡنَا الۡاَمَانَۃَ عَلَی السَّمٰوٰتِ وَ الۡاَرۡضِ وَ الۡجِبَالِ فَاَبَیۡنَ اَنۡ یَّحۡمِلۡنَہَا وَ اَشۡفَقۡنَ مِنۡہَا وَ حَمَلَہَا الۡاِنۡسَانُ ؕ اِنَّہٗ کَانَ ظَلُوۡمًا جَہُوۡلًا ﴿ۙ۷۲﴾
Meaning: We presented Our Trust (Divine Trust) before the skies, earth and mountains. Everyone refused to bear it, however man picked it up. No doubt, he is cruel (towards his innerself) and ignorant (of his highest rank near Allah). (Al-Ahzab:72)
What is Divine Trust?
According to the perfect Fakirs, the Divine Trust actually refers to the true heritage of the Holy Prophet. In essence it is Ism-e-Allah Zaat and the Trust of Faqr.
Who is bearer of Divine Trust
When the seeker of Allah reaches the peak of Faqr he becomes immortal with Allah after he annihilates in Him. As he acquires all the attributes of Allah. Therefore he adorns the grand status of the Universal Divine Man, al-Insan al-Kamil.
The person to whom Divine Trust transfers is at the grand position of;
اِذَاتَمَّ الۡفَقۡرُ فَھُوَ اللّٰہ
Meaning: When Faqr is accomplished, that is Allah.
Allah says in the Quran:
اَلرَّحۡمٰنُ فَسۡـَٔلۡ بِہٖ خَبِیۡرًا
Meaning: Allah is the Most Compassionate. (O aspirant of His knowledge) ask of Him from someone who has attained His awareness. (Al-Furqan:59)
The Universal Divine Man becomes the ultimate manifestation and reflection of Allah. As he reflects the light of the Divine Essence as well as all His names, attributes and actions. Moreover he possesses all the Divine attributes and virtues.
As Allah says in the Holy Quran:
وَ کُلَّ شَیۡءٍ اَحۡصَیۡنٰہُ فِیۡۤ اِمَامٍ مُّبِیۡنٍ
Meaning: And We have encompassed everything in the enlightened leader (Ya-Seen:12)
In this verse the enlightened leader refers to the one who bears Divine Trust. Allah has kept all His wills, commands and the created universe in the Guarded Tablet which is, in fact, the inward of the perfect Divine Man. After all inward is the place where lights of Divine Essence descend. Moreover its vastness is unexplainable and unimaginable.
