Sufi concept: Tuesday – Prophet Aaron


Shaykh Ibn al-‘Arabi tells us, that for every day there is a prophet from among the prophets, from whom descends a secret upon the heart of the verifying witness, a secret in which you takes delight during your day and by which you know something of that which requires to be known. This only happens to those who possess a heart.

Day 3: Tuesday
If your day is Tuesday, then Aaron is your companion, so adhere to right guidance and John, the Baptist, will be your intimate, so cleave to purity and contentment. On Tuesday it is either Aaron or John who addresses you with a secret by which he comes to know what is beneficial or harmful about the influences that come upon you from the world of the unseen.

Divine attribute: Seeing
Prophet: Aaron
Planet (Arabic): al-marrîkh
Planet: Mars
Creating divine name: al-Qâhir

Constellation (Arabic): ‘Awwa
Constellation: Bootes

The motion of Tuesday was created from the divine attribute Seeing (basar), so there is no part of the world but that it is witnessing its Creator, i.e. in relation to its own individual essence, not the Essence of the Creator, because the Essence of God, the Creator, may not be seen. He may be seen only through the manifestation of His attributes throughout the creation.

The divine name the All-Prevailing (al- Qâhir) was intent on bringing into being the third heaven (the fifth from the Earth), so He caused its distinctive spiritual reality to appear, along with its planet Mars, al-marrîkh, and its sphere and he made it the dwelling for Aaron. The existence of this planet and the motion of its sphere were in the lunar mansion ‘Awwa, which is the 13 th station of the 28 Moon stations on Tuesday. From the motion of this sphere appeared the letter lâm.
