A Poem of Love


A Poem of Love
by Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani

His birth is the birth of Islam
His birth in this world is the birth of Islam
But his light was the first to be created
And from this light is the birth of all creation
He was and he is still, the Prophet of all prophets
The beacon of the universe and Paradises
The ocean of beauty and majesty
The sky of happiness and love
He is the perfect servant of Allah {swt}
He is The Servant
He is The Jewel, he is The Gem
He is The Mirror of the reflections of the Divine
That brings the light of heavens on this dark earth
He is the one who is with everyone
As Allah said, w`alamoo anna feekum rasoolullah
Know that the Prophet is within you
He is the one that will intercede for humanity
He is the one that can stand in front of Allah {swt} by Allah's permission
He is the Means for all creation
He is the Intercessor for all creations
He is the Light, the one Allah dresses with Light upon Light
He is the Illumination that illuminates the universe
His secrets are in heavens, His secrets are in the Presence
His Secrets are in the Divine
His Secrets are like an abundant river
His Secrets dominate the creation because he is Muhammad Rasoolullah (s)
He is the one that has been brought to the Nearness
The Nearness that no nearness can reach
The Nearness where it was revealed to him what he was asking for
The Nearness Gibril was unable to reach
The Nearness of all nearnesses and that no one can understand
His level, no one can understand
His level, no one can reach
His level, neither angel, nor human nor jinn can understand
He is what he is, only His Lord knows who he is
And as for us we say: he is the jewel of jewels
Light of lights, Secret of secrets
Heaven of heavens, the door to the Divine
The way to every seeker, the struggle of every gnostic
He is the one Allah created as Mercy for His humanity
He is the Mercy and the mercy is He
He is the Gifted-Mercy, he is the Undescribed Mercy
He is the joy and, oh rejoice O human beings in that mercy of his
Allah {swt} gave him what He did not give anyone else
Dressed him with what he did not dress anyone else
Loved him with what He did not love anyone else
He was and still is and forever will be
For every human being and for every angel that exists:
The Honored One
For him humanity was honored when Allah said:
Wa laqad karamnaa bani Adaam
Allah honored human beings for the honor of the leader
And the light and the prophet of humanity and creation
May Allah dress us with the endless dresses He dressed his Prophet
And keep us with him dunya and akhira
And make him intercede for every sin we have done
And for every lie we have lied and for every imperfection we have made
And for every mischief we have produced, for what we know and don't know
As You, O Allah, said: Laa taqnatoo bi'rahmatillha
Dont lose hope of Muhammad (s}!
O Allah make us at his threshold, at his feet, under his feet
Sincere slaves to you and sincere believers in your Prophet
We congratulate the Muslim world for the birth of the Prophet (s)
For his birth is the birth of beauty and the birth of paradises
And the light of whatever Allah created from the light of Muhammad Rasoolullah
On this night may Allah dress us with the dress of Rabbi`al-Awwal

Those for Whose Sake Prophets and Martyrs Will Rejoice
Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani
15 December 2011     Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Suhbah at KL Zawiya
As-salaamu `alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh.
A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem.
Nawaytu 'l-arba`een, nawaytu 'l-`itikaaf, nawaytu 'l-khalwah, nawaytu 'l-`uzlah,
nawaytu 'r-riyaadah, nawaytu 's-sulook, lillahi ta`ala fee haadha 'l-masjid.
Kalimataani khafeefatani `ala’l-lisaan thaqeelataan fi ’l-meezaani, Subhaan-Allah wa bi-hamdihi subhanallahi ’l-`azheem astagfirullah.
أَطِيعُواْ اللّهَ وَأَطِيعُواْ الرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الأَمْرِ مِنكُمْ
ati`oollaha wa ati`oo 'r-Rasoola wa ooli 'l-amri minkum.
Obey Allah, obey the Prophet, and obey those in authority among you. (an-Nisa, 4:59)
To obey is to accept and to love; if you don’t accept and love then you don’t obey, so obedience is under these two elements. When we love and fear losing that love, we always keep trying to fix it and this enables us (to be obedient). Also, to obey Allah (swt) is to love whom Allah (swt) loves, and whom does Allah love? Those who are loved by Allah must be happy, because it is not easy for someone to be loved by Allah. In the general meaning, of course Allah loves everyone, but Allah (swt) put tests on us in order to perfect that love. He is waiting for us to improve ourselves to be accepted in His Divine Presence, then for sure we are going to win His love! But if you really love Allah, how can you follow Him?
قُلْ إِن كُنتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ اللّهَ فَاتَّبِعُونِي يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللّهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَاللّهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ
qul 'in kuntum tuhibboona Allaha fa `attabi`oonee yuhbibkumu Allahu wa yaghfir lakum dhunoobakum wa Allahu Ghafooru 'r-Raheem.
Say (O Muhammad), "If you (really) love Allah, then follow me! Allah will love you and forgive your sins, and Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. ('Ali Imraan, 3:31)
Follow Allah (swt) by following Muhammad (s)! This is a very beautiful gathering today with many decorations and a very nice banner that reads “Allah (swt)” and “Muhammad (s),” which shows that all of you have the respect for The One you love. So, Allah said in the Holy Qur’an, “If you love Me, follow My messenger,”  and ati`oollaha, “Obey Me,” meaning, “Show your love to Me by following Muhammad (s).” That is why He says in another ayah: 
مَّنْ يُطِعِ الرَّسُولَ فَقَدْ أَطَاعَ اللّهَ
Man yuti`i ar-rasoola faqad ataa`a Allah.
Who obeys the Prophet obeys Allah. (Surat an-Nisa, 4:80)
So when you obey the Prophet (s), immediately you are obeying Allah (swt). “If you love Me, follow Muhammad.” To “follow” means “to obey;” ittiba` is obedience. Do we love Allah (swt) and Prophet (s)? Yes, we do. Then, our duty is to follow what they asked us to do. So the first thing to ask is, “Are we doing the five prayers?” I am checking myself and you check yourself. Are you doing the five prayers? If you are not, then how are you obeying? Then say, “I have to do these.” Then, try to progress in your `ibadaah, do your five prayers. Are you fasting? You know better, and many Muslims say they are. For sure you fast (in this country), but there are Muslims who don't fast. Why do many Muslims fast, but don't pray? There is question mark. Too many Muslims are not praying. So that means our love and our obedience is not perfect yet and we have to complete it.
If we know what the Prophet (s) said to the Sahaabah (r), we will be in sajda day and night. I will quote one hadeeth of the Prophet (s). This is not fiqh teaching or a fiqh session in which we study the principles of praying, fasting, and mu`amalaat of imaan.  It is a general advice, as the Prophet (s) said, ad-deenu naseeha, “Religion is advice.”

Biography of The Master of Creation Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ

Biography of The Master of Creation Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ  

by Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani (Naqshbandi Golden Chain Series-1).

How can people in this world grasp his reality?
They, who are asleep and pleased by dreams from him.

How beautiful what has been said about his reality!
Your light is everything and everything else is particles.
O Prophet, your soldiers in every time are your Companions!
Imam Busayri, al-Burda
The Shaykhs of the Naqshbandi Order are known as the Golden Chain because of their connection to the highest, most perfect human being, Muhammad ﷺ , the First to be created, the First to be mentioned, the First to be honored.
When Allah ordered the Pen to write, it asked, “What shall I write?” and Allah said, “Write ‘La Ilaha Ill-Allah.’” The Pen wrote “La Ilaha Ill-Allah” for seventy-thousand of Allah’s years and then it stopped. One of Allah’s days is equal to one thousand of our years. Then Allah ordered it to write again, and the Pen asked, “What shall I write?” and Allah answered, “Write Muhammadun Rasul-Allah.” And the Pen said, “O Allah, who is this Muhammad that You have put Your Name next to his name?” Allah said, “You must know that if it were not for Muhammad I would not have created anything in Creation.” So the Pen wrote Muhammadun Rasul-Allah for another seventy-thousand years.
When did Allah order the Pen to Write? When did the Pen Write? When did that writing of “La ilaha ill-Allah Muhammadun Rasul-Allah” occur? No one knows. The mention of the name of the Prophet by Allah, Almighty and Exalted, is something which happened before the creation of anything, and its reality occurred in pre-Eternity. That is the reason the Prophet mentioned, “kuntu Nabiyyan wa adamu bayni-l-ma’i wa-t-tin” – “I was a Prophet when Adam was between water and clay.”
He is the Perfect Human Being. He is the Seal of all prophets and messengers. What can a weak servant say in order to honor the Master of Messengers? If it were not for him, no one would ever have known Allah, Almighty and Exalted. Never would the fabric of the universe have been woven into existence as it has been woven. Therefore the pen cannot describe the most perfect of the Perfect human beings, the Master of Masters, the King of Kings, the Sultan of Sultans of the Divine Presence.
He is the Heart of the Divine Presence. He is the Heart of the Unique Essence. He is the Sign for Oneness and the Sign of Oneness. He is known as the Secret of All Secrets. He is the only one addressed by Allah Almighty and Exalted, because he is the only one considered Responsible in the Presence of Allah who said, “Were it not for him I would not have created any of My creation.” All of the creation was given to the Prophet as a divine gesture of honor from Allah, Almighty and Exalted. Therefore the Prophet is responsible for that creation which is his honor and his Trust. For that reason he is the only one to be addressed in the Divine Presence.
The singular status of the Prophet ﷺ is the heart and the Essence of the phrase of tawheed [La ilaha ill-Allah Muhammadun Rasul-Allah] and the foundation of Sufism. The Prophet is the “one soul” mentioned in the Qur’anic verse, “[O Mankind] Your creation and your resurrection is in no wise but as an individual soul” [31:28]. It is also the Prophet who is the “single life” represented in the verse, ”If anyone slew a person… it would be as if he slew the whole people: And if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people.” [5:32]
The Prophet ﷺ , moreover, referred to his responsibility in the hadith: a`malakum tu`radu `alayya kulla yawm, “All your actions are shown to me every day. If they are good, I pray for you; if they are bad, I ask Allah’s forgiveness for you.” That means that the Prophet is the one who is responsible towards God for his Community. That is why, as we said, he is “the only to be spoken to.” It is the meaning of Intercession. Allah refers to this intercession in the verse, “If they had only, when they were unjust to themselves, come unto thee and asked Allah’s forgiveness, and the Messenger had asked forgiveness for them, they would have found Allah indeed Oft-Returning, Most Merciful” [4:64].
His honorable biography and his blessed speeches and actions can never be encompassed in a book. But we can say that he is Muhammad ibn Abdullah ibn Abdul Muttalib ibn Hashim and that his lineage goes back to Ibrahim . He was born in Makkah al-Mukarrama on a Monday, the 12th of Rabi`ul Awwal, 570 CE, in the Year of the Elephant. His mother, Sayyida Amina, when she gave birth to him, saw a light coming from her that turned all darkness into light as far as Persia. When he was born, the first thing he did after coming from his mother’s womb was to fall into prostration. His father died before he was born. He was nursed by Thuayba and then by Halima as-Sa`diyya, with whom he stayed for four years.
While returning with him from a visit to his uncles in Madinat al-Munawwara (at that time Yathrib), his mother fell sick and died. He was six years old. His grandfather raised him for two years, until he also died. Orphaned three times, he went to live with his uncle, Abu Talib. Allah Almighty and Exalted ordered the Angel of the Trumpet, Israfil to accompany him at all times until the age of eleven years. Then Allah ordered Jibril to accompany him and to look after him and to keep him in his safekeeping, and to send to his heart heavenly and spiritual Powers.
He traveled with his uncle to Sham (Damascus). On their way they passed by Basra where a monk named Buhaira, living in a monastery nearby, told his uncle, “Take him back, it will be safer for him.” At that time he was twelve years old. Years later he traveled again to Sham with Maysara, to trade on behalf of the Lady Khadija (RA) . They were very successful. Maysara told Khadija about his miraculous powers and his business acumen and she became interested in him. She proposed marriage and he accepted her offer. He married her when he was 25 years of age and she was forty.

Who is Rabi`at al-`adawiyya?



                                          Source-  SufiLive.com
Who is Rabi`at al-`adawiyya?

Last Night Sayyid Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani gave an advise from Grandshaykh Abdullah Faiz Ad Daghestani (q) on Patience.
Grandshaykh 'Abdullah al-Fa'iz ad-Daghestani (q) said, in 1388 Hijri, about 53 years ago is it not? nearly 55 years. He said directly without any explanation Rabi`at al-`adawiyya (q)...
Who is Rabi`at al-`adawiyya? She was a lady saint. She reached sainthood because she was under punishment of her husband for 7 years and she never opened her mouth. Allah granted her what she did not expect, Allah swt made her a Waliyya, a saint. He said that with this torture and abuse she found the reality, her eyes were opend and her heart was opened so she was looking from the light that Allah granted from Allah's Light. 'Ittaqoo firaasat al-mu'min fa innahu yanzhuro bi noorillah'- "Be aware of the vision of the believer because he looks with the light of Allah", Allah swt gave him authority and the Prophet (s) dressed him to use the light that is in his heart to see what cannot be seen, hear what cannot be heard, do what cannot be done. She was able to do that.
Everything coming to her and saying to her, this is what Allah created you for. That is because 7 years in torture, seven years in seclusion it means. seclusion if you hold on to what the shaykh gave you, you will encounter a lot to make you run away. They send a lot to torture you and make you run away. I was hearing the rattling of a snake from corner of the room, high up on the mountain in Mawlana Shaykh's home in Damascus. At night you dont hear but voices of animals running from here and there. So that snake rattling make you to shake from one corner to another but when you dont pay attention, 24 hours and then those noises disappeared.
Grandshaykh (q) said because she was patient and she didnt complain, she was saabira, patient, and she did not complain she reached the realities of things. Wasala ila al-haqeeqa. She met that stone, that animal that herb, that tree, that fruit, they will tell her why Allah created them for the benefit of humanity. They say herbal medicine, every herb, in seclusion, you will know about why Allah created it for what kind of medicine. When she reached that level adrakatha rawhaaniyyatun'n-Nabi (s), the spirituality of the Prophet (s).
Do you want the honey? you have to tajara`you al-murr you have to taste the bitterness of this dunya, if you dont taste the bitterness of this dunya and everything open, easy, then you dont reach the sweetness of akhira in this life. You will reach in akhira because you are mumin (believer) but you will not reach it in dunya when you dont taste the bitterness. when too much bitterness around you and they say to you save yourself, run away. you have to do it, you succeed or not, you must do it.
As-sihaam al-muwajaha ilayh anyone wants to hold the religion must face all the arrows that are around him, as if you are in the middle and all these indians natives all around you with their arrows. what do you want to do? save yourself. Yes! You want the honey, face the arrows. face the bitterness of the dunya. if you face the bitterness of the dunya and you dont complain at that time they give you what you never expect to get.

Allah is the Creator and we are his servant

Allah is the Creator and we are his servant
Some people claiming to be sufi are claiming that they are uniting with Allah swt.
Shaykh Hisham Kabbani explains that there is no such belief in Sufism. There is no wahdatul wujud! Even Shaykh Ibn Arabi never said that.

Allah swt is the Creator we are the servants

The Power of Sending Salawat on Prophetﷺ,


The Power of Sending Salawat on Prophetﷺ, 1

If technology can reach millions of people, Sayyidina Muhammad (s), who reached Qaaba Qawsayni aw Adnaa, can reach the whole Creation! The mountains and rocks were making tasbeeh when he passed them and he could hear them:
وَإِن مِّن شَيْءٍ إِلَّا يُسَبِّحُ بِحَمْدِهِ وَلَـٰكِن لَّا تَفْقَهُونَ تَسْبِيحَهُمْ

And there is not a thing but celebrates His praise, but you cannot understand their praise. (Surat al-Israa’, 17:44)

Everything speaks--rocks, creatures, worms--Allah is saying everything speaks, but you cannot understand their tasbeeh. Prophetﷺ hears and sees them and understands their tasbeeh. If you want the Prophetﷺ to hear you and come to you, make salawaat on him!

The Power of Sending Salawat on Prophetﷺ,
Prophetﷺ hears and sees them and understands their tasbeeh. If you want the Prophetﷺ to hear you and come to you, make salawaat on him! Say:

Yaa Sayyidi, yaa Rasoolullah, yaa Habeebullah, yaa Shafee` al-Mudhnibeen! Munaajeeka min haadhaa l-maakaan, nas’aluka an tuqaddimunaa li hadrati Llaahi `azza wa jall taahireen mutatahireen, laa khawfun `alayhim wa laa hum yahzanoon.
Yaa Rasoolullah! We are calling you from this place! We are asking you to present us to Allahﷻ clean and pure with no dust on us, without any sin!
The Power of Sending Salawat on Prophetﷺ, 3

Say: Ya Rasoolullah! We are calling you from this place! We are asking you to present us to Allahﷻ clean and pure with no dust on us, without any sin!
Can the Prophetﷺ do that? Yes, of course. So why we are not sending salawaat on him every day? Because our hearts are not yet perfect. Allahﷻ said to Prophetﷺ and he mentioned it to us:

ولا يزال عبدي يتقرب إلي بالنوافل حتى أحبه، فإذا أحببته كنت سمعه الذي يسمع به وبصره الذي يبصر به، ويده التي يبطش بها ورجله التي يمشي بها،
My servant does not cease to approach Me through voluntary worship until I will love him. When I love him, I will become the ears with which he hears, the eyes with which he sees, the hand with which he acts, and the legs with which he walks (and other versions include, “and the tongue with which he speaks.”). (Hadith Qudsi, Bukhari)

The Ten Steps to Discipleship


The Ten Steps to Discipleship 

Part 1
The following post is based on the book "The Sufi Science of Self Realization", now available on Amazon and isn1.net!!

What is the real meaning of pilgrimage or migration? Can the real meaning be only moving from one city to another, or between countries or acquiring a new nationality? That is the physical meaning: leaving one place to go to another. The true spiritual migration, hijrah, is the one Prophet Muhammad (s) led his Companions on. It is his teachings.

The Prophet's teachings embody the highest understanding of migration; he gave us the principles of migration in perfection. If we observe, experience, and act on these principles, we will achieve the genuine migration that everyone is longing for. Not a migration from the Earth to Mars, or from the Earth to the Moon. Such a migration would still be within the boundaries of this world. for "this world" includes all that you can see of stars, planets and galaxies in space.

What the Prophet (s) gave us is the migration of character, from corruption to purity, from ugliness to blessedness, from darkness to light. He taught us to understand moral values, and that by achieving perfection of character we gain God's satisfaction and happiness. 

When you make the migration from bad desires and traits to good character and manners, when you achieve the highest level of moral virtue, you attain the power of spiritual ascension and self-realization. At that point, your ego stands at its limit, not transgressing the bounds of morality and manners. Wonders will be opened for you at that time. However, when you reach that level, do not pretend that such power or vision belongs to you; in reality, it is from God. Render everything back to its source: God's Divine Names and Attributes.
At that time, the real migration-the highest level of understanding-will open for you through your meditation, muraqabah.

The Prophet is the mirror of the Divine Presence

 Centre Soufi de Montréal Naqshbandiyya Nazimiyya
 Source - Centre Soufi de Montréal Naqshbandiyya Nazimiyya
The Prophet is the mirror of the Divine Presence
As we mentioned, the Prophet (s) is "the Perfect Human Being," al-Insaan al-Kaamil, as it is mentioned in the Tawraat that Allah created human beings on sooratih, His Own Image. Okay, we understand that (soorah) is more symbolic, but it means that Allah (swt) reflected and manifested the continuous spring of the Beautiful Names and Attributes that have no end.
Every moment a spring is coming; not just one spring, but springs are coming like fountains of water that are describing the reality of the Essence that cannot be understood, except through that one who is reflecting it to us, who is "al-Insaan al-Kaamil." He is the one receiving these blessings or manifestations and reflecting them to all Creation. The only one who can receive that is Prophet (s), who is the Perfect Human Being. It is said that he is the mirror on which Allah (swt) reflects Himself. He sends these images or realities, and the mirror, Insaan al-Kaamil, reflects them on anyone in the Heavens or Earth in need of these manifestations.
That is why Sayyidina Muhyideen ibn `Arabi (r) said, "The Prophet is the mirror of the Divine Presence." And he said more than that, he went so deep. "If Allah wants to look at His Creation, he looks at His mirror, the Prophet (s), who is the reflection of these appearances in this Universe." I hope we understood? That is why it is said the ghawth receives directly from the Prophet and then he sends on to those five qutbs who are waiting for these manifestations. That is why it is said that one who has qatratun, one drop, is:
عَيْنًا فِيهَا تُسَمَّى سَلْسَبِيلًا
`aynun feeha tusamma salsabeela,
A fountain there, called Salsabil, (al-Insaan 76:18).

That mirror is reflecting a spring that is mentioned in Surat al-Insaan as `aynun feeha tusamma salsabeela, "It is a spring called, 'Salsabeel." It is a knowledge that never ends, and who is able to drink even one drop from that spring will become a servant of Allah. That is why Sayyidina al-Khidr was able to drink from that maa' al-hayaat, the "Fountain of Youth," but in reality, in Heavens it is called the "Spring of Salsabeel."
Salsabeel quenches the thirst of `ibaadAllah whom Allah dressed with that. It is said they understand the reality of al-Insaan al-Kaamil through his best character as he must possess that.
ن وَالْقَلَمِ وَمَا يَسْطُرُونَ مَا أَنتَ بِنِعْمَةِ رَبِّكَ بِمَجْنُونٍ وَإِنَّ لَكَ لَأَجْرًا غَيْرَ مَمْنُونٍ وَإِنَّكَ لَعَلى خُلُقٍ عَظِيمٍ
Noon wa al-qalami wa maa yasturoona maa anta bini`mati rabbika bi-majnoonin wa inna laka la-ajran ghayra mamnoonin wa innaka la-`alá khuluqin `azheem.
Noon. By the Pen and what the (angels) write. You (O Muhammad) are not, by the Grace of your Lord, a madman. And verily for you will be an endless reward, and verily, you are on an exalted standard of character. (al-Qalam, 68:1-4)
Allah gives an oath by the arabic letter, Noon, and what is Noon? Allah knows best, but we will explain this once. "Noon" is the highest heavenly level by which Allah gives an oath, that, "Yaa Muhammad! You are of the best character!" From it `ibaadullah are quenching their thirst, those who want to understand and become deeply involved in these fountains, and to reach tahaqquq, Certainty. That is why it is said, man tahaqaqa takhalaqa, "Who reached (the Station of) Certainty, Allah will dress with best character."
So if you wish to reach best character, you must reach the Stations of Certainty: `Ilm al-Yaqeen, "Knowledge of Certainty", `Ayn al-Yaqeen, "Vision of Certainty", and, Haqq al-Yaqeen, "Truth of Certainty."
Muhyideen ibn `Arabi (r) continues, "Whoever inherits from that will have perfect character. Any appearance from what Allah creates can appear only through the mirror of the Prophet (s)." Wa man takhalaqa tahaqaqa, "Who inherits from the Prophet of good character will become certain of what he is hearing and seeing."
So if we want to reach the Station of Certainty, we need to reach good character. Do we have good character? (No.) Do you shout at your wife? (Sometimes.)

So the best character is to be patient. Like the ocean, that never complains. If all the sewers go into the ocean, does it complain? No. And it is still clean, you can still make wudu in it. And if you put filth in any moving river you can still make wudhu in it. So, who reaches the Station of Certainty, his character will be perfected. And whose character is perfected will be stamped, "He reached reality." man takhalaqa tamazzaq, "Who reached the best of character and these manifestations will be torn into pieces!"
The Prophet (s) is of the best character, and in dunya the Prophet said, "I am the one most abused," tamazzaqa fil-haqq, "torn apart in truth." Who wants to reach the best character has to know that in front of him are torture and obstacles, because he knows the truth is there and he is not able to reach the Divine Presence easily.
There are lot of obstacles he or she has to overcome, wa man takhalaqa tamazzaqa fil-haqq. Who has good character will be torn to pieces in the reality, the truth. And that is why awliyaullah suffered a lot to reach realities, and all their life is obstacles. al-Jilee, who is a big scholar and also a wali, said, Istadhir dhi'nuka, "Focus your mind on us; mushattat al-afkaar, don't be distracted too much by your thoughts. Open your ear and bring your mind to focus, and your heart."
Kullul-a`rifeen al-muwajiheen min al-haqq, "These gnostics crowned with crown of ma`rifah , oneness and knowledge, tasarraf, they never acted in the heavenly perfect Kingdom of Allah (swt), except through the best of their characteristics." So don't lose that.
These are the levels of aqtaab, the five qutbs.
They are in that level of perfection where they reached to inherit from the Prophet (s). That is why it is said, al-Insaan al-Kaamil is always in connection with Allah's Beautiful Names that appear to him, and awliya cannot count how many Beautiful Names and Attributes appear in every moment.

قُلِ اللّهُ ثُمَّ ذَرْهُمْ فِي خَوْضِهِمْ يَلْعَبُونَ
qul Allah wa dharhum fee khawdihim yal`aboon.
Say "Allah," then leave them to plunge in vain discourse and trifling. ( Surat al-An`am, 6:91)
Allahu Akbar! Say "Allah," and don't mind about what they are playing; leave khalq, human beings and their affairs. Don't go to their level, as you are in that high level, saying, "Allah," which is the highest Beautiful Name, that all other Names are under! Mention His Name! That is the source of all Beautiful Names and Attributes sent to Muhammad (s)!

So, inna Allah wa mala`ikatahu yusalloon, means Allah is ordering His angels to carry the manifestations of these Beautiful Names and Attributes that are appearing in every moment, and to dress them on the Prophet. And according to awliya there is no limit to the Beautiful Names and Attributes manifested on him! It is continuous khalq, Creation, manifested on Prophet (s)!
It is also said that everyone is dressed with the tajalli of one of the Beautiful Names, and Prophet sees you under that tajalli and he gives you a name according to that Name, which he knows from the light appears in the divine mirror.
As we said but didn't discuss, there is "`Abdur-Rahman, `Abdur-Raheem, `Abdul-Ghaffar." Whoever has those names are under the tajalli and servanthood of those Beautiful Names. There can be many people having the same name, but each is in a different light, because one Beautiful Name has an infinite number of tajalliyat.
That is why we appear with that tajalli, our appearance is with the blessing of that light, and when awliya look at their followers they look at them under that light. They know their rank in the Divine Presence based on the light coming on them.
And that is why Prophet is always in connection with the Beautiful Names and Attributes that can be envisioned and seen, and they are the real appearances of Allah (swt) on His Prophet (s).
