A Poem of Love

MUHAMMAD


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

Annihilated in Divine Love


 


Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani

Jumu`ah Khutbah at As-Siddiq Institute & Mosque (ASIM)

(Opening du`a.)

O Muslims, brothers and sisters! Nothing is requeste from this dunya but obedience to Allah (swt), Who said in Holy Qur'an: Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem.


أَطِيعُواْ اللّهَ وَأَطِيعُواْ الرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الأَمْرِ مِنكُمْ
Atee`oollaha wa atee`oo 'r-Rasoola wa ooli 'l-amri minkum.
Obey Allah, obey the Prophet, and obey those in authority among you. (Surat an-Nisa, 4:59)

Who has authority on you? Your parents, your scholars, your country, it depends, but most important is to obey Allah (swt) and His Prophet (s) and who obeys the Prophet obeys Allah, as He said in Holy Qur'an:


وَمَا آتَاكُمُ الرَّسُولُ فَخُذُوهُ وَمَا نَهَاكُمْ عَنْهُ فَانتَهُوا
So take what the Messenger assigns to you, and deny yourselves that which he withholds from you.  (Surat al-Hashr, 59:7)

It means “Leave what Prophet (s) forbade and take what he ordered.”  

And best is to have faith, those who have imaan, as Allah said in Holy Qur'an:


كُنتُمْ خَيْرَ أُمَّةٍ أُخْرِجَتْ لِلنَّاسِ تَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَتَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَتُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللّهِ
You are the best of nations evolved for Mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong and believing in Allah. (Surat Aali-`Imraan, 3:110)

Look how nice it is said for the people of this time, and when Allah says something that is it (Haqq). He is saying, “You are the best ummah that Allah has sent to humanity. You call for good and prohibit what is wrong.” There is a story which describes imaan. it is mentioned in the time of Sayyidina Musa (a), one of the people who believed in him, his neighbor, who was always thinking and reflecting on the Greatness of Allah and His Creation:


الَّذِينَ يَذْكُرُونَ اللّهَ قِيَامًا وَقُعُودًا وَعَلَىَ جُنُوبِهِمْ وَيَتَفَكَّرُونَ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ
Alladheena yadhkuroonallaaha qiyaaman wa qu`oodan wa `ala junoobihim wa yatafakkaroona fee khalqi ’s-samaawaati wa ’l-ard.
Those who remember Allah (always, and in prayers) standing, sitting and lying down on their sides, and contemplating the creation of the Heavens and the Earth. (Surat Aali `Imraan, 3:191)

That neighbor was always thinking that Allah created us for `ibaadah; he was a worshipper. Then one day Sayyidina Musa (a) was preparing to go to Toor Sinaa, Mt. Sinai, to meet with Allah (swt) and to request some things for his Nation, as mentioned in Nuzhat al-Majalis.

That neighbor came to Sayyidina Musa (a) and said, “I feel I don’t have faith, although I pray and I read Tawraat and Zaboor, but I feel I don’t have faith, I need faith.” Today we say we need imaan, our imaan is not perfect, not complete. So he said, “When you go to Toor Sinaa, I have a request for Allah (swt) to send imaan, true belief to my heart, as now I consider my imaan incomplete. I need imaan that fills me up, not to think about anything but Allah (swt) and I request that when you go, as you are Kaleemullah, you speak with Allah directly, so ask that from Him for me.”

In summary, then Sayyidina Musa (a) went and he received what he received of orders from Allah and at the end he said, “Yaa Rabb, my neighbor is requesting from you imaan. can you give him some imaan.
Allah said to Sayyidina Musa (a), “Go tell your neighbor that I have sent him some imaan.”

Sayyidina Musa (a) went home, straight to his neighbor's house and knocked on the door but there was no answer, finally the door opened and he went inside and found his neighbor sitting facing their Qiblah, Masjid al-Aqsa, and not moving.

He said, “O my neighbor! Allah has sent you imaan, good tidings!”
That man did not move, he was staring and not responding, so he told him again, and again there was no response, and a third time there was no response. So finally Sayyidina Musa (a) nudged him and he fell down, but still did not move.
Then Allah said, “Yaa Musa, I just sent your neighbor imaan in the smallest measurable amount and even if you were to cut him into pieces he would not feel it, so leave him alone until I take his soul!”
That is the effect of a tiny amount of imaan.


عَنْ عُمَرَ بْنِ الْخَطَّابِ ، قَالَ : كُنْتُ مَعَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ جَالِسًا ، فَقَالَ : " أَنْبِئُونِي بِأَفْضَلِ أَهْلِ الإِيمَانِ إِيمَانًا " ، قَالُوا : يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ، الْمَلائِكَةُ ، قَالَ : " هُمْ كَذَلِكَ ، وَيَحِقُّ لَهُمْ ذَلِكَ ، وَمَا يَمْنَعُهُمْ وَقَدْ أَنْزَلَهُمُ اللَّهُ الْمَنْزِلَةَ الَّتِي أَنْزَلَهُمْ بِهَا ؟ بَلْ غَيْرُهُمْ ؟ " ، قَالُوا : يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ، الأَنْبِيَاءُ الَّذِينَ أَكْرَمَهُمُ اللَّهُ بِرِسَالَتِهِ وَالنُّبُوَّةِ ، قَالَ : " هُمْ كَذَلِكَ ، وَيَحِقُّ لَهُمْ ، وَمَا يَمْنَعُهُمْ ، وَقَدْ أَنْزَلَهُمُ اللَّهُ الْمَنْزِلَةَ الَّتِي أَنْزَلَهُمْ بِهَا ؟ بَلْ غَيْرُهُمْ " ، قَالُوا : يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ، الشُّهَدَاءُ الَّذِينَ اسْتُشْهِدُوا مَعَ الأَعْدَاءِ ، قَالَ : " هُمْ كَذَلِكَ وَيَحِقُّ لَهُمْ ، وَمَا يَمْنَعُهُمْ ، وَقَدْ أَكْرَمَهُمُ اللَّهُ بِالشَّهَادَةِ مَعَ الأَنْبِيَاءِ ؟ بَلْ غَيْرُهُمْ " ، قَالُوا : فَمَنْ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ؟ ، قَالَ : " أَقْوَامٌ فِي أَصْلابِ الرِّجَالِ يَأْتُونَ مِنْ بَعْدِي ، يُؤْمِنُونَ بِي ، وَلَمْ يَرَوْنِي ، وَيُصَدِّقُونَ بِي ، وَلَمْ يَرَوْنِي ، يَجِدُونَ الْوَرَقَ الْمُعَلَّقَ فَيَعْمَلُونَ بِمَا فِيهِ ، فَهَؤُلاءِ أَفْضَلُ أَهْلِ الإِيمَانِ إِيمَانًا " .
Sayyidina `Umar (r) relates: I was sitting with the Prophet (s) and the Prophet (s) said, anbiyoonee bi afdali ahli ‘l-imaani imaanan? “Can you tell me who has the best imaan?” The Sahaabah thought and they said, “It is the angels.” The Prophet (s) said, “How are angels not going to have the best imaan when they are in Paradise and they see Allah and what He gives them? No, it is someone else.” And they said, “The anbiya.” Prophet (s) said, “What prevents them to have imaan when they see prophecy and Jibreel (a) is coming to them?” And they said, “Ash-shuhadaa, the martyrs who fought for Allah's sake and were with their prophets.” And the Prophet (s) said, “Of course they have that, hum ka-dhaalika wa yahiqqu lahum, they were given shahaada by Allah.” In another narration they then said, “Your Sahaabah, yaa Nabiyullah.” The Prophet (s) said, “How are my Companions not going to have faith when I am speaking with them and they speak with me?” Then the Prophet (s) said, “Aqwaamun fee aslaabi ’r-rijaal, men who are unborn, they are in the backs of their fathers in sperm form. I am seeing them.” The Prophet (s) saw them, because he said, aqwaamun fee aslaabi ’r-rijaal, “they are still in the sperm position, waiting to appear. They never saw me, but they see papers, yajidoona al-waraqa al-mu`alaq fa y`amaloona bimaa feehi, “They will find papers,” (in that time paper was made of animal hides, leather or leaves), “they will see it hanging and verses of Qur’an have been written in it, and they accept and they do what has been ordered for them to do on these hanging pages.” Fa ya`maloonaa bimaa feehi, “They do according to what is written there.” (al-Haakim, al-Bazaaz, as-Suyuti)

As related by Sayyidina `Umar (r), Sahaabat an-Nabi (s) were sitting with the Prophet (s) and he said, “Tell me about who has the best imaan,” and they said, “al-malaa’ika, the angels,” and the Prophet (s) said, “Of course they have to have best imaan because Allah created them in Heaven, so what stops them from having it? No, they are someone else.” And they said, “al-anbiya, the Messengers that Allah sent and generously gave them a message to deliver to their people and they are of two types: one has a message to deliver and others are Prophets but with no message,” like the brothers of Sayyidina Yusuf (s) were prophets, but Yusuf was a Messenger delivering a message. And the Prophet (s) said, “What would prohibit them from having best of imaan when Allah generously gave them the status of being Prophets and Messengers? bal ghayrahum, not them, others.” And they said, “Then the shuhaada, martyrs, those who died supporting the Messenger that Allah sent in their time and they died fee sabeelillah.” And the Prophet (s) said, “Not them.” And they said, “Yaa Rasoolullah, then who has best imaan?”

Look, Allah sent one atom of imaan sent to that neighbor of Sayyidina Musa (a) and he was drowned in that, swimming in it! And what was the answer of the Prophet (s), when he asked the Sahaabah (r), “Who are those with the best imaan?” Prophet (s) said, Aqwaamun fee aslaabi ’r-rijaal yaatoona min ba`dee yuminooona bee wa lam yarawnee, wa yusadiqoonee wa lam yarawnee, “They believe in me without seeing me and they confirm what I say without having seen me.”

Who are they? Are they not you? “You are the best of nations evolved for Mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong and believing in Allah”, and, “They confirm and believe in the Prophet (s) without seeing him.”




In every moment the Prophet (s) sends us imaan from his Mercy Oceans and keeps us strong to hold that without fainting or becoming unconscious! “And they will have a Book written and raised up,” meaning the Holy Qur'an, “and they will believe in it and follow it without seeing me. Those are the best of humanity in their imaan, no one can come to their levels, they are in a high level.” That is mentioned by al-Hakim, al-Bazaaz and by as-Suyuti. May Allah keep sending His Mercy on us.


وَرَحْمَتِي وَسِعَتْ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ  فَسَأَكْتُبُهَا لِلَّذِينَ يَتَّقُونَ وَيُؤْتُونَ الزَّكَـاةَ وَالَّذِينَ هُم بِآيَاتِنَا يُؤْمِنُونَ
Rahmatee wasi`at kulli shay fa-sa-aktubuha lilladheena yattaqoona wa yutoona ‘z-zakaat wa’Lladheena hum bi-aayaatinaa yoominoon.
My mercy embraces all things, therefore I shall ordain It for those who ward off (evil) and pay the poor due, and those who believe Our revelations. (Surat al-A`raaf, 7:156)

“My mercy has encompassed everything and I will write it for those who have taqwa,” so we need taqwa every moment and we need to say, “Laa ilaaha illa-Llah Muhammadun rasoolullah” whenever we do something wrong, and remember that Hadith of Sayyidina `Umar (r), “They are people coming in the future who believe in Me and did not see Me.”

May Allah (swt) save us from what is coming, as major issues are coming.

Today the Ummah Lacks Faith in Allah(swt)

Today the Ummah Lacks Faith in Allah(swt)

Suhbah at International Cultural Center (ICC)

InshaaAllah we start with dhikrullah then an advice for myself and you, inshaaAllah to clean all our sins.
[Khatm.]

Anyone wants to speak? As-salaamu `alaykum wa rahmatullah wa barakaatuh. [Wa `alaykum salaam wa rahmatullah wa barakaatuh.] When they reply, “wa `alaykum salaam,” it’s enough for the whole Ummah. As-salaamu `alaykum wa rahmatullah wa barakaatuh. [Wa `alaykum salaam wa rahmatullah wa barakaatuh.] Even if only one person says it, it’s enough to download and attract all angels in Heaven, one salaam. So what do you think about 200 salaams (from all these attendees)? Allah’s Rahmah cannot be counted. We count everything; they think they are counting, they count the size of everything today with technology, but can they count how many hairs I have in my beard? Doctor? [Maybe?] Okay, come! Maybe for Awliya, yes, maybe for prophets, of course, maybe for Sayyidina Muhammad (s), for sure. But for just anyone it’s impossible.

Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. Alhamdulillahi Rabbi 'l-`Alameen, wa ’s-salaatu wa ’s-salaamu `alaa ashrafi 'l-mursaleena Sayyidina wa Nabiyyina Muhammadin wa `alaa aalihi wa sahbihi ajma`een.

I will mention the story about how Ummat an-Nabi (s) is so important and then we come to how to be peaceful in a situation where there is fighting everywhere. I am not a lecturer, I am not a speaker, I am not `alim. I am someone that likes to be at the door or threshold of  `ulama. I don’t prepare [what I will speak], sometimes for Jumu`ah, yes, but other times, whatever comes to the heart I relate and it's important for me and important for you. If I say something, it doesn’t mean I don't need it, I need it as you need it.

Today the problem is that `, with all their hard work, if they are not really surrendering in their actions to Allah (swt) and to the Prophet (s) and to Islam, they cannot imprulamaove themselves, although, on the other hand, Allah loves them and loves the whole Ummah of the Prophet (s) and that is why He said in Holy Qur'an:

كُنتُمْ خَيْرَ أُمَّةٍ أُخْرِجَتْ لِلنَّاسِ تَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَتَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَتُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللّهِ
You are the best of Nations sent to Mankind, calling for what is good and prohibiting what is wrong.
(Surat Aali-`Imraan, 3:110)

“You were/are the best Ummah that Allah has sent to humanity,” from Sayyidina Adam (a) and all prophets to the Prophet, Sayyidina Muhammad (s). Allah is saying that the Ummah of Prophet (s) is the best over all the others! That is honor for us, that is big honor! When you get respect or honor from Allah (swt), that is what counts. Even if you memorized the whole Holy Qur'an or memorized the whole Ahaadith, if you don’t get that honor from the top that means your `ilm is not perfect, it’s a soup, it is not sincere.

The Ummah lacks sincerity, and still with that Allah made them the best Ummah. Look at Allah's Love! He made us different from any other nations in order...it is our duty and our obligation to remain in sajda and never raise our heads! When Allah honors:

وَلِلَّهِ الْعِزَّةُ وَلِرَسُولِهِ وَلِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ
wa lillahi ’l-`izzatu wa li rasoolihi wa li ‘l-mu’mineen.
Great honor is for Allah and for the Prophet (s) and for the Believers (and Muslims). (Surat al-Munafiqun, 63:8)

Honor, `izza, is for Allah (swt), for His Prophet (s), and for Mu’mins, which is this [gathering]. So He said, “You are the best Ummah,” you are and you were, the ayah comes ‘kuntum’ in the past tense, “You were the best Ummah,” which means, “when you were not yet in the physical form, but in souls on the Day of Promises, when everyone said to Allah (swt), ‘You are our Creator’, from the time Muslims said ‘Laa ilaaha illa-Llah Muhammadan Rasoolullah,’ I made you the best Ummah there, in that time, not when you were coming to dunya, but from that time where no one knows that time, when souls were in My Divine Presence. I made you the best Ummah!”

So what is our obligation to Allah (swt)? What is our obligation? It is to put our head in sajda and not to raise our heads! One young person came to me in Ramadan and he was crying and he said, “O Shaykh! Guess what happened.”
I said, “Tell me.”
He was crying and said, “My father died.”
He was young. I know them, so I said, “Where, when?”
He said, “We were going to pray Taraweeh (in Ramadan) and when we reached sajda before at-Tahiyyaat, my father stayed in sajda and never woke up, he died in sajda.”

He was in the position of sajda in Taraweeh when he died, is that not an honor? That is an honor that Allah gave that person! So let us ask ourselves, what did Allah give us? What is the best honor? The best honor is that He made us Muslimeen, muwwahideen from Ummat an-Nabi (s)! That is enough honor for us, that is why Ummat an-Nabi (s) is ummatan maghfoora, the nation Allah has forgiven of all sins, except from killing; that Allah will not forgive.

The Faith of Sayyidina Musa’s Neighbor

The story I want to mention is of Sayyidina Musa (a). He had a neighbor who believed in him and who believed in Allah (swt), and he knew that Sayyidina Musa (a) was preparing himself to go up Toor Sina, Mt. Sinai. So he ran to him and said, “Yaa Nabiyyullah, yaa Musa! I have a request. You are Kaleemullah, you speak to Allah directly. I want you to ask Him for faith for me, I want faith.”
What do we Muslims lack? We lack faith:

آَمَنْتُ بِاللهِ وَمَلَائِكَتِهِ وَكُتُبِهِ وَرُسُلِهِ وَلْيَوْمِ الْآَخِرِ وَبِالْقَدْرِخَيْرِهِ وَشَرِّهِ مِنْ اللهِ تَعَالَى.
Amantu billahi wa malaa’ikatihi wa kutubihi wa rusulihi wa bi ’l-yawmi ‘l-aahkiri wa bi ‘l-qadiri khayrihi wa sharrihi min Allahi ta`ala.
I declare my belief in Allah, His Angels, His Books, His Messengers, the Day of Judgment, and in Destiny, both its good and evil being from Allah the Exalted. (Imaan al-Mufassal)

“I believe in Allah and His angels and His Books and His prophets and in the Day of Judgement, and in Qadr, destiny, its good and its bad.” When you believe you have to make `itaa` a lot, you have to say sami`anaa wa ata`anaa, “We hear and we obey,” when you believe.

That neighbor told Sayyidina Musa (a), “I don't have a lot of faith,” even though he had a lot, but he used his heart, not his mind, if he used his mind he would have said, “Oh, I have a lot of faith,” but when you use your heart you know that you have nothing, we won’t say ‘nothing’, but you lack faith.
Sayyidina Musa (a) said to him, “Why? Don't you believe in me?”
He said, “Of course I believe in you or else I will not ask you to ask My Lord for imaan.”

Do we have faith? What did Sayyidina `Umar (r) do when the Sahaabah (r) gave him baya` as Ameer al-Mu’mineen? He came to the house crying and his wife said, “O `Umar, why are you crying? You are the Head of Believers, Ameer al-Mu’mineen.”

Sayyidina `Umar (r) was known as strong and firm, not afraid of anyone! The Prophet (s) said:

لَوْ كَانَ بَعْدِي نَبِيٌّ لَكَانَ عُمَرَ بْنَ الْخَطَّابِ
The Messenger of Allah (s) said, "If there was going to be a prophet after me, it would have been `Umar bin Al-Khattab." (Narrated `Uqbah bin `Amir; Tirmidhi)

And Grandshaykh said Sayyidina `Ali (r) carried the whole dunya to his knees. Remember? One day Sayyidina `Ali (r) was walking in Madinat al-Munawwarah and as he was walking, he observed adab and he was looking where he has to put his feet. Today, do we look at where we put our feet when we are walking? No, we look right and left. So he was looking at his feet, but he felt someone walking in front of him and he saw a very old lady, very, very old, carrying a wicker basket. And he looked at her and with high adab Sayyidina `Ali (r) came to her and he said, “Can I help you?”
She said, “Yes, but I don't think you can carry my basket.”
He said, “How can I not carry your basket!”

Of course he can carry it, at least that is the thought of the mind, but of course the heart is different. There is the conscious and the unconscious. Using your mind you don't get far, but using your heart they pour knowledge.

He said, “Oh no, I will help you.”
She put the basket on the ground, but Sayyidina `Ali (r) was not able to take up that small basket higher than his knees! Then it immediately came to him, “This old lady is dunya.”
And Prophet (s) said:
أنا مدينة العلم و علي بابه
Anaa madinatu 'l-`ilmi wa `Aliyyun baabuha.
I am the City of Knowledge and `Ali is its Door (or Gate). (al-Haakim, Tirmidhi)

What comes to his heart is true and from Prophet (s), so coming to his heart, “Yaa `Ali, this is dunya. That old lady represented that the dunya is ending soon. She was carrying the whole dunya and you, `Ali, were able to carry this whole dunya up to your knees!”

Look at his power! With its mountains, Allah (swt) made dunya to be in a basket. So that’s faith: if you believe in the story there is faith and if you don’t believe it means there is no faith. And al-imaan bi ‘l-ghayb, imaan is to believe in the Unseen. If Allah wants to make something seen to someone and not to others, you cannot deny the Unseen. If Allah Awliyaullah wants and shows someone the Unseen, you cannot deny it as that one can see it and you cannot. That is why take their knowledge from the heart of the Prophet (s), `Uloom al-Awwaleen wa ‘l-Akhireen, the Knowledge of Before and the Knowledge of After, then they can see what people cannot see! That is not from us, that is a Holy Hadith of the Prophet (s), a very strong Hadith, muttafaqun `alayh, agreed upon.

Allah will give you hearing that no one else can hear it! We are not going into that discussion...you can hear and see and act that is how Awliyaullah know what is going to happen; they can advise you.

The Prophet (s) said:
ستكون فتن كقطع الليل المظلم
Sa-takunoo fitanan ka-qita`ti 'l-layli 'l-muzhlim.
There is going to be confusion like a chunk of dark nights.

“There will be fitna in the Last Days like chunks of dark nights,” like when you look at the sky and there are no stars, no light. Prophet (s) said, “There are going to be fitna in the Last Days like this dark night.” When he says ‘dark nights’ that means zhulmah, injustice, that is now coming on everyone; in Arabic we call it “dark nights” in which you have to be very careful because shayaateen run at night. That is why the Prophet (s) used that word to explain it, “There will be fitna like chunks of dark nights”, which means too many and too much fitna, and that is what we are seeing now.

So...where we arrived? So the Prophet (s) said, “If you accept the orders of Allah and obey,” the Prophet (s) mentioned in the Holy Hadith that He will open for you what people cannot see and give you hearing what people cannot hear. Do we have that? No, so it means we need what? Faith! There are sincere, pious servants that have that; they can, because Allah gave it to them. So what we need? We need faith, but faith in whom today, faith is in this one and that one, where the signs of a  hypocrite are three:

آيَةُ الْمُنَافِقِ ثَلاثٌ : إِذَا حَدَّثَ كَذَبَ , وَإِذَا وَعَدَ أَخْلَفَ , وَإِذَا اؤْتُمِنَ خَانَ
Aayatu ’l-munaafiqu thalaatha: idhaa haddatha kadhab, wa idhaa wa`ada akhlaf, wa idhaa ‘tumina khaan.
The signs of a hypocrite are three: when he speaks he lies, and when he makes a promise he breaks it, and when he is charged with a trust, he deceives. (Bukhari)

  1. If he speaks he lies. Do you think that people are not lying on each other today? Prophet (s) is describing, “With all this (sinning), O my Ummah, Allah sent you as the best of Ummahs! Allah loved you, made you with me, chose you to be with me.” SubhaanAllah! `Alamaat al-munaafiq thalaath: we don't want to say I am or you are, but there is hypocrisy in our lives today and if people talk they lie.
  2. If you trust them they betray you.
  3. If they promise you they pull their promise back, idhaa wa`ada akhlaf, they don't keep their promise.

Is this what you see today? So where is faith? So that neighbor wanted faith. He went to Sayyidina Musa (a) and said, “I want faith. Alhamdulillah I don't want anything, I am eating, drinking, I am praying, doing my obligations, but I want faith.”

So Sayyidina Musa (a) went to Mount Sinai and finished asking Allah for what he needed to ask, and then at the end he said, “Yaa Rabb! My neighbor is requesting faith,” and Allah revealed directly to his heart, as he does not need Jibreel (a) as intermediary since he is Kaleemullah, Allah (swt) said to him, “Go tell him that I am sending to him one atom of faith, one dharrah.” In Arabic “dharrah” is one atom, it is the smallest that you can imagine.
Sayyidina Musa (a) said, “Dharrah? Only that small one?” and Allah said, “That is enough.”

And so he went back and went to his neighbor, and knocked on the door and there was no answer so he pushed the door and went in. There he saw the man in his mihrab praying, as if he had lifted his arms to takbeer, to say “Allahu Akbar”, and he was frozen. And Musa pushed the man, his neighbor, saying, “Wake up, I have good tidings for you,” and he pushed him again, saying, “O my neighbor, wake up!” and then he heard a Voice coming, “O Musa, even if you grind him to pieces, every piece is going to say, ‘Allah, Allah,’ that I am sending him faith and that is only one atom, a dharrah. What do you want more than that? More than that this whole universe will disappear!”

Were Allah to send perfect faith from Heavens, which means you are in the Divine Presence as they take you there and you see what cannot be seen, we could not carry it due to too much fitna. Look, for Sayyidina Musa (a) Allah gave a dharrah of faith, then look what Allah gave to Ummat an-Nabi (s)!

عَنْ عُمَرَ بْنِ الْخَطَّابِ ، قَالَ : كُنْتُ مَعَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ جَالِسًا ، فَقَالَ : " أَنْبِئُونِي بِأَفْضَلِ أَهْلِ الإِيمَانِ إِيمَانًا " ، قَالُوا : يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ، الْمَلائِكَةُ ، قَالَ : " هُمْ كَذَلِكَ ، وَيَحِقُّ لَهُمْ ذَلِكَ ، وَمَا يَمْنَعُهُمْ وَقَدْ أَنْزَلَهُمُ اللَّهُ الْمَنْزِلَةَ الَّتِي أَنْزَلَهُمْ بِهَا ؟ بَلْ غَيْرُهُمْ ؟ " ، قَالُوا : يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ، الأَنْبِيَاءُ الَّذِينَ أَكْرَمَهُمُ اللَّهُ بِرِسَالَتِهِ وَالنُّبُوَّةِ ، قَالَ : " هُمْ كَذَلِكَ ، وَيَحِقُّ لَهُمْ ، وَمَا يَمْنَعُهُمْ ، وَقَدْ أَنْزَلَهُمُ اللَّهُ الْمَنْزِلَةَ الَّتِي أَنْزَلَهُمْ بِهَا ؟ بَلْ غَيْرُهُمْ " ، قَالُوا : يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ، الشُّهَدَاءُ الَّذِينَ اسْتُشْهِدُوا مَعَ الأَعْدَاءِ ، قَالَ : " هُمْ كَذَلِكَ وَيَحِقُّ لَهُمْ ، وَمَا يَمْنَعُهُمْ ، وَقَدْ أَكْرَمَهُمُ اللَّهُ بِالشَّهَادَةِ مَعَ الأَنْبِيَاءِ ؟ بَلْ غَيْرُهُمْ " ، قَالُوا : فَمَنْ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ؟ ، قَالَ : " أَقْوَامٌ فِي أَصْلابِ الرِّجَالِ يَأْتُونَ مِنْ بَعْدِي ، يُؤْمِنُونَ بِي ، وَلَمْ يَرَوْنِي ، وَيُصَدِّقُونَ بِي ، وَلَمْ يَرَوْنِي ، يَجِدُونَ الْوَرَقَ الْمُعَلَّقَ فَيَعْمَلُونَ بِمَا فِيهِ ، فَهَؤُلاءِ أَفْضَلُ أَهْلِ الإِيمَانِ إِيمَانًا " .   

Sayyidina `Umar (r) relates: I was sitting with the Prophet (s) and the Prophet (s) said, anbiyoonee bi afdali ahli ‘l-imaani imaanan? “Can you tell me who has the best imaan?” The Sahaabah thought and they said, “It is the angels.” The Prophet (s) said, “How are angels not going to have the best imaan when they are in Paradise and they see Allah and what He gives them? No, it is someone else.” And they said, “The anbiya.” Prophet (s) said, “What prevents them to have imaan when they see prophecy and Jibreel (a) is coming to them?” And they said, “Ash-shuhadaa, the martyrs who fought for Allah's sake and were with their prophets.” And the Prophet (s) said, “Of course they have that, hum ka-dhaalika wa yahiqqu lahum, they were given shahaada by Allah.” In another narration they then said, “Your Sahaabah, yaa Nabiyullah.” The Prophet (s) said, “How are my Companions not going to have faith when I am speaking with them and they speak with me?” Then the Prophet (s) said, “Aqwaamun fee aslaabi ’r-rijaal, men who are unborn, they are in the backs of their fathers in sperm form. I am seeing them.” The Prophet (s) saw them, because he said, aqwaamun fee aslaabi ’r-rijaal, “they are still in the sperm position, waiting to appear. They never saw me, but they see papers, yajidoona al-waraqa al-mu`alaq fa y`amaloona bimaa feehi, “They will find papers,” (in that time paper was made of animal hides, leather or leaves), “they will see it hanging and verses of Qur’an have been written in it, and they accept and they do what has been ordered for them to do on these hanging pages.” Fa ya`maloonaa bimaa feehi, “They do according to what is written there.” (al-Haakim, al-Bazaaz, as-Suyuti)

“They come after me and they believe in me, but they did not ever see me, but they see the Holy Qur’an and they will do according to what is written in Holy Qur’an. Those are the best of people on Earth.” To whom did the Holy Qur'an come? Allah gave it to Prophet (s) for his Ummah. This is you, this is the Ummah! Look how much is Allah's love that the Prophet (s) said, “They are the best that Allah created,” which is Ummat an-Nabi (s)! With all that we are doing of killings and lying and spying and all kinds of bad manners, still Allah’s love is with us! So the question is, how to eliminate that? It is very simple. In Washington they are writing and writing and writing position papers and research, all around the world, checking, doing their duty, but the Prophet (s) brought it in two words. He said:

إِنَّ بَيْنَ أَيْدِيكُمْ فِتَنًا كَقِطَعِ اللَّيْلِ الْمُظْلِمِ يُصْبِحُ الرَّجُلُ فِيهَا مُؤْمِنًا وَيُمْسِي كَافِرًا وَيُمْسِي مُؤْمِنًا وَيُصْبِحُ كَافِرًا الْقَاعِدُ فِيهَا خَيْرٌ مِنَ الْقَائِمِ وَالْقَائِمُ فِيهَا خَيْرٌ مِنَ الْمَاشِي وَالْمَاشِي فِيهَا خَيْرٌ مِنَ السَّاعِي " . قَالُوا فَمَا تَأْمُرُنَا قَالَ " كُونُوا أَحْلاَسَ بُيُوتِكُمْ "
Before the Hour comes, there will be a tribulation like patches of dark night. A man will get up a believer and go to sleep a kaafir, or will go to sleep a believer and get up an unbeliever, kaafir. The one who sits will be better than one who stands and one who walks will be better than one who runs. Break your bows, cut their strings and strike your swords against stones. If someone comes to kill any of you, then be like the better of the two sons of Adam. (Narrated Abu Musa al-Ash`aree, Abu Dawud.)

Sa-takoonu fitanun ka-qita` al-laylati ’l-muzhlim. What do you do? Sit at home: al-qaa`idu feehaa khayrun min al-qaa’im (al-waaqif), the one sitting in that time is better than the one moving. It doesn’t mean to sit at home all the time, but don’t participate in these problems. Al-qaa`idu khayrun min al-waaqif, “The one sitting is better than the one standing and trying to participate.” That is what Prophet (s) is saying, and al-waaqifu feehaa khayrun min al-maashee, “The one standing is better than the one who is walking.” This is what we see today, is it not? This is what we are seeing around us and everyone wants to participate, to go and see what is happening, correct? The less you are involved the better, because you relax and then you don’t need doctors, psychiatrists. So what do we need to do? The Prophet (s) said to the Sahaabah and to us in this Hadith:

قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: إذا مررتم برياض الجنة فارتع. قالو وما رياض الجنة؟ قال "حلق الذكر"
Qaala Rasoolullah (s) idhaa marartum bi-riyaada ’l-jannatu farta`oo. Qaaloo wa maa riyaadyou ’l-jannah? Qaala hilaq adh-dhikr.
Ibn `Umar reported that the Prophet (s) said: "When you pass by the Gardens of Paradise, avail yourselves of them." The Companions asked: "What are the Gardens of Paradise, O Messenger of Allah?" He replied: "The circles of dhikr.” (Tirmidhi)

If you pass by the Heavenly Gardens, sit.” And the Sahaabah (r) said, “Yaa Rasoolullah! We are in dunya, we are not in Heavens yet. Are there Gardens of Heaven in dunya?” Yes, of course there are! Do we see any garden? We know of one, that is the rawdatan min riyaadh al-jannah that Prophet (s) mentioned in his Hadith, the Rawdat an-Nabi (s), the Garden of Prophet (s) where we go as pilgrims for Hajj, that place is part of Heaven. But Prophet (s) said, “Idhaa marartum bi-riyaada ’l-jannatu farta`oo”, which means there are others like it, not at that level as what is in Madinatu ‘l-Munawwarah, but which might have the fragrance of that one. “If you pass by riyaad al-jannah,” he used plural tense as there are many around the world and you have to find them, “then sit in them.” And the Sahaabah (r) asked, “And what are these Gardens of Heaven? We are on Earth, yaa Rasoolullah?” And the Prophet (s) said, “They are the Circles of Dhikr, hilaq adh-dhikr,” that you are in today, this is a Circle of Dhikr.

Ask the psychiatrist (here), what medicine they are giving their patients? The medicine is to sit in dhikrullah and they don't need more. They did studies in Malaysia about vibrations of the brain, all its fiery vibrations; they call it ‘gossip inspiration’ when things come through the mind that make you busy, and they came up with dhikrullah, to put people in Circles of Dhikrullah and let them listen and after a while they said it began to drop those fiery vibrations that go from hundreds per second from the unconscious to conscious, hearing voices, etc., not memorizing well, then it goes down to 7-14 vibrations per minute by sitting and listening to dhikr or reading the Hadith of Prophet (s). That also is the age to memorize well, from 7-14 years and that is why children can memorize easily. Give him some tablets, no memory, but there is something in dhikrullah that makes your mind fresh and you can memorize when the vibrations drop.

Allah Will Mention You in His Divine Presence

Why did the Prophet (s) tell Sahaabah (r), "When you pass by Gardens of Paradise, not one but many, sit and make dhikr with them.” What is in them? There are many ayaat on dhikrullah in Holy Qur’an, but what do you get to make that place a garden? What did the Prophet (s) say in another Hadith? Allah says in a very strong Holy Hadith:

أَنَا جَلِيْسُ مَنْ ذَكَرَنِي
Anaa jaleesu man dhakaranee.
I sit with him who remembers Me. (Hadith Qudsi. Ahmad, Bayhaqi)

وأنا معه إذا ذكرني فإن ذكرني في نفسه ذكرته في نفسي، ومن ذكرني في ملأ ذكرته في ملأ خير منه
Wa anaa ma`ahu idhaa dhakaranee, fa in dhakaranee fee nafsihi dhakartahu fee nafsee wa man dhakaranee fee malaa’in dhakartahu fee malaa’in khayran minhu.
I am with him when he mentions Me. If he mentions Me to himself, I mention him to Myself, and if he mentions Me in an assembly, I mention him in an assembly better than it. (Hadith Qudsi)

“I am sitting with the one who remembers Me.” Who is the best to be sitting with? Not sitting physically, but spiritually to feel the nearness of what Allah (swt) is dressing you with when you sit for dhikr, it means He is dressing you with different anwaar al-haqq, Manifestations of different Noor; we cannot say it means sitting physically as that is kufr. But Allah says, “I am sitting with the one who remembers Me and I remember him in a better association than his, that is not comparable: one is heavenly and the other is worldly. Allah will mention your name in His Presence! What does that mean? If your name is mentioned by angels, if Allah makes angels mention your name, what does that mean? It means you are honored: it means He will give you  according to your capacity ears and vision and hearing that no one has, as not everyone receives the same. Now that tajalli is coming down, Manifestation of Allah's Noor coming down, and don't think that everyone sees the same. This one might have different manifestation coming, and that one is different, and that one is different. Allah is not poor! He has treasures that no one knows and He gives from these treasures.

That is why He made angels give salawaat on the Prophet (s) and make us do salawaat and learn from them. And each salawaat on the Prophet (s) is different, and so every dhikrullah you make is with a different noor than the next person and every person gets his own private manifestation not resembling the other! On Judgment Day you will appear with that dress, those noors will appear. If you sit every day you will have unlimited numbers of dresses; every time you sit in dhikrullah, that noor is different and appears on Judgment Day! That is why Awliyaullah give you an awraad to recite daily, so you recite one day you get different knowledge and different lights and different meaning, different presence. All that is due to these kinds of circles. When you increase these kinds of circles in your community, like today people sit only in circles of `ilm which is good, but they don't sit in circles of dhikrullah, some do and some do not. Ahlu ‘s-Sunnah wa 'l-Jama'ah sit in the  majaalis of salawat `ala an-Nabi (s), and that is dhikrullah.

إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا صَلُّوا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا
Inna-Llaaha wa malaa'ikatahu yusalloona `ala 'n-nabiyy, yaa ayyuha ’Lladheena aamanoo salloo `alayhi wa sallimoo tasleema.
Verily, Allah and His angels send praise on the Prophet. O Believers! Pray upon him and greet him with a worthy salutation. (Surat al-'Ahzaab, 33:56)

How to Finish ISIS

So if they want this problem to finish, the Muslim Ummah must sit in their places and do dhikrullah. It’s not about non-Muslims! If they want to finish that problem of ISIS in Iraq, one wali can turn them upside down! One jinn by order of a wali can turn them upside down! They don't need weapons and they don't need a coalition or anything, but Muslims are very far away from these powers, from that belief and that faith. They must increase their faith to understand and believe, as Sayyidina Sulayman (a) was asking one `ifreet min al-jinn, of the highest order of devils, not mu’min, the strong one to bring the throne of Sheba.

قَالَ عِفْريتٌ مِّنَ الْجِنِّ أَنَا آتِيكَ بِهِ قَبْلَ أَن تَقُومَ مِن مَّقَامِكَ وَإِنِّي عَلَيْهِ لَقَوِيٌّ أَمِين
Qaala `ifreetun min al-jinni anaa ateeka bihi qabla an taqoomu min maqaamik wa wa innee `alayhi la-qawiyyun ameen.
A bold one of the invisible beings (subject to Solomon) said, “I shall bring it to you before you rise from your council-seat. Lo! I verily am strong and trusty for such work.” (Surat an-Naml, 27:39)

That is one of strongest of devils, and he said, “I will bring it before your gathering is over.”
Sulayman (a) said, “No, I need it quickly.”
Then his minister, `Asif ibn Barqiyya, said, “I will get it in the blink of an eye.”

قَالَ الَّذِي عِندَهُ عِلْمٌ مِّنَ الْكِتَابِ أَنَا آتِيكَ بِهِ قَبْلَ أَن يَرْتَدَّ إِلَيْكَ طَرْفُكَ
Qaala alladhee `indahu `ilmun mina ‘l-kitaabi anaa ateeka beehi qabla an yartada ‘ilayka tarfuk.
Answered he who was illumined by Revela­tion, “I will bring it to you within the twinkling of an eye!”
(Surat an-Naml, 27:40)

He said one servant who has some knowledge from the Book said, “I will bring it to you before your eyes blink,” and that was one who knew only some of the book of Sulayman (Psalms, not Holy Qur’an, the book of Prophet [s]). One blink and the Throne was there! Where are these people today? That is from the nation of  Sayyidina Sulayman and Dawud (a), what do you think about the nation of Muhammad (s)? That jinn was able to do, that wali was able to do faster, where are they today? They are there, but look for them, they are hidden, they are not showing themselves. One of them can turn everything upside down, but let Muslims go back to their sincerity and to their imaan.

Weapons Will Not Finish ISIS

Faith is what we lack, and faith can give you power and change everything to better. How they (ISIS) came? Suddenly where 30,000 or 40,000 soldiers appeared in one night, how did they appear? Too many conspiracies they say, or they say, “We don't know.” Who was behind it? To stop them is to do only one thing: hilaq adh-dhikr. Go to masaajid or in your homes, remember Allah daily and Allah (swt) will take them in one second!  They are in the Syria and the Iraqi desert, and Allah can send one sandstorm and finish them! We finish them by Holy Qur'an and Hadith: that is what Muslims have to believe in, not to finish them by using weapon, which are dangerous for everyone. We are Ahlu ‘s-Sunnah wa ‘l-Jama'ah and we believe in the power of Awliyaullah that Allah granted to Sayyidina Muhammad (s) and he gave to his Awliya:

أَلا إِنَّ أَوْلِيَاء اللّهِ لاَ خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلاَ هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ
Alaa inna awliyaaullaahi laa khawfun `alayhim wa laa hum yahzanoon.
Behold! Verily on the Friends of Allah there is no fear, nor shall they grieve. (Surah Yunus, 10:62)

Where are the Awliya Now and Why Don’t They Stand Up?
Laa khawfun `alayhim, don’t worry about them as Allah gave them everything they want, but let them ask! I am asking Awliyaullah, where are they now, why are they not standing up? There is hikmah also, wisdom. Before Allah used to send `adhaab, punishment, by earthquake, by flood, but the Prophet (s) asked Allah (swt), “Don't let my Ummah die from an earthquake,” and Allah said, “Yes”, and “not to die from flood,” and Allah said, “Yes”, and he asked, “Let them not die from fighting each other,” and Allah said, “No, that one I don't grant, wa yudheeqa ba`dakum baasa ba`din, We will make both sides to taste the worst it can be.”

وَيُذِيقَ بَعْضَكُم بَأْسَ بَعْضٍ
Wa yudheeqa ba`dakum baasa ba`din.
Or to confound you with mutual discord and let you taste the fear of one another. (Surat al-An`am, 6:65)

Allah is sending His punishment. May Allah take back His punishment from the Ahlu ‘l-Islam, because they are the ones that are punished today, is there anyone else? They are punished because of what they are doing. Awliya are waiting to help, but no one...maybe now people are changing their minds to believing in Awliyaullah, before they were hidden. Look for some and you will find some.

Wa min Allahi ‘t-tawfeeq bi hurmati ‘l-Fatihah.

LOVE OF PROPHET ﷺ



 Source- sufilive  

                                                            
                                                                  



 LOVE OF PROPHET ﷺ, PART 1

 Prophet ﷺ said, “Don’t worry, you will be with the one you love,” and the Sahabah (r), Sayyidina Abu Bakr (r) and Sayyidina Ali (a) said, “Ya Rasulullah! Never we heard something that we like as much as today.” This is so simple. When Allah ﷻ loved the Prophet ﷺ, what did He do? He made all his angels make salawaat on the Prophet ﷺ and He did not order his angels to make salawaat on other prophets, so we can lean our backs on that love! .

LOVE OF PROPHET ﷺ, PART 2 . 
What did Muhammad al-Busayri (q) say in Burdat ash-Sharifah? "He is the Beloved One whose Intercession is sought." He was able to see the Prophet ﷺ with his eyes; don’t think Prophet cannot be seen! He is hadhir wa nadhir, present and seeing! When you call on him, he is present! If you say, "Ya Sayyidi, ya Rasulullah,” he will answer you, he is not dead! We can even see him from here if we are granted that! . Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani ��. 7 November 2014 Courtesy of Sufilive.com

LOVE OF PROPHET ﷺ, PART 3 . 
According to Ahlu ’s-Sunnah wa ’l-Jama`ah, Prophet ﷺ said: نا حيٌ طري في قبري I am alive and supple in my grave. Also: حياتي خير لكم تحدثون ويحدث لكم ، فإذا أنا مت كانت وفاتي خيرا لكم ، تعرض علي أعمالكم فان رأيت خيرا حمدت الله تعالى وإن رأيت شرا استغفرت لكم I observe the `amal of my ummah. If I find good I thank Allah, and if I see other than that, bad, I ask forgiveness for them. (al-Bazzaar in his Musnad) . We love Prophet Muhammad ﷺ in our hearts and we want to devote our lives to him! Every Muslim likes to do that and the Sahaba (r) did that! So we hope Allah ﷻ will dress us with the real dress of love to the Prophet ﷺ and there is no other love in dunya except that one. . Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani ��. 7 November 2014 Courtesy of Sufilive.com 

LOVE OF PROPHET ﷺ, PART 4 . 
 We love the Prophet ﷺ and we like to praise him as much as we can! Because of that we have been accused of what they say, “Too much praising of the Prophet ﷺ is shirk.” No, it is not shirk! Allah ﷻ ordered all angels to make salawat on the Prophet ﷺ and they are far greater in number than human beings. إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا صَلُّوا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا Verily, Allah and His angels send praise on the Prophet. O Believers! Pray upon him and greet him with a worthy salutation. (Surat al-'Ahzab, 33:56) Allah ﷻ is giving His Mercy to the Prophet ﷺ, who said in a Holy Hadith: من صلى علي مرة صلى الله عليه بها عشرا Whoever prays on me one time, Allah prays on him ten times. (Sahih Muslim) _______ Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani ��. . Courtesy of Sufilive.com 

LOVE OF PROPHET ﷺ, PART 5 . Because of your love to Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, no one will stop you on the Day of Judgement because he will be your Intercessor, your share! Allah ﷻ will give him shafa'ah and there he will take all you Lovers to Paradise without any hisaab, the Reckoning! . As-Sayyid Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani Courtesy of Sufilive.com

MEANING OF THE AYAH OF OBEDIENCE (4:59)

  Source - sufilive 

                                                           



MEANING OF THE AYAH OF OBEDIENCE (4:59), PART 1 

 Grandshaykh `AbdAllah (q) said, “When you recite ‘Atee`oollaha wa atee`oo 'r-Rasoola wa ooli 'l-amri minkum’ Allah manifests His Maghfirah, He forgives you and will send His Beautiful Name 'Al-Ghaffar' on you, so that if you had sins heavier than all human beings, with the secret of that ayah Allah (swt) will erase everything from you and give you as if you Atee`oollaha, obey Allah, wa atee`oo ‘r-Rasool, and obey Prophet (s) completely!” There are 500 obediences and 800 forbiddens, and Grandshaykh (q) said, “The meaning is as if all 800 forbiddens were erased and all 500 obediences are dressed on you, so Ummat an-Nabi will appear on the Day of Judgement like stars on a dark night and everyone will say, ‘These are the Muslims, yaa laytanaa kunna muslimeen, we all wish we were Muslims!’” .

MEANING OF THE AYAH OF OBEDIENCE, PART 2 . 
 But it is finished (written): a Muslim is a Muslim and a non-Muslim is a non-Muslim. We must be thankful that Allah is sending that kind of mercy on us! This majlis will be raised to the level of the shaykh running this tariqah and Allah gave every shaykh of every tariqah something. Allah (swt) even gave twins different personalities, although they might have the same appearance, but still they are different. Allah gave awliya whatever they have asked! .

The Principle of Haadir and Naazhir


 
   Source -      sufilive


The Principle of Haadir and Naazhir, Part 1 

 The principle of Haadir and Naazhir, Presence and Vision (seeing) is very important to Ahlu 's-Sunnah wa 'l-Jama'ah. That is why Prophet ﷺ said, "My life is a great good for you: you ask me and I teach you and you listen to me." If we build the foundation that Prophet ﷺ is alive, hearing and seeing in Hayaat al-Barzakh and that he says, "My life is good for you because I teach you what you need to know," does that hadith apply only for a limited time or is it ongoing for the whole Ummah? Is Holy Qur'an for all the Ummah, is Hadith an-Nabi (s) only for when Prophet ﷺ was living with his Sahaabah (r) or for the whole Ummah? That is why there are people who can speak with the Prophet ﷺ from anywhere and he will inspire their hearts from wherever they are! That is the importance of this hadith. . As-Sayyid Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani �� 15 November 2014 Courtesy of Sufilive.com _______

 THE PRINCIPLE OF HAADIR AND NAAZHIR, PART 2 . 
  Therefore, anyone dipped in that hadith, Allah ﷻ will open for him from hidden knowledge that His Prophet ﷺ will dress hayaat, life, on that person and that is why He ﷻ said in Holy Qur'an: بَلْ أَحْيَاء عِندَ رَبِّهِمْ يُرْزَقُونَ Rather, they are alive, finding their sustenance in the presence of their Lord. (Surat Aali-`Imraan, 3:169) That is not only for those who are living, but also for ash-shuhaadah who are being provided for in the Divine Presence. Any wali is also shaheed as shahadah is not only to fight, but it is in anything you struggle to teach, then you are in shahadah fee sabeelillah! .

SECRETS OF THE NAQSHBANDIYYA NAZIMIYYAH SUFI ORDER

 SECRETS OF THE NAQSHBANDIYYA NAZIMIYYAH SUFI ORDER PART 1 

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (q)- #Allah Almighty said to #Prophet Muhammad (s) on the Night of Ascension, 'O Muhammad, I have created all of the creation for your sake and I am giving it all to you.' At that moment Allah swt granted the Prophet to see all that he had created with all their lights and favours that Allah had granted creatures by decorating them with his attributes and with his Divine Love and Beauty. __________________________________ The Prophet #Muhammad (s) was enthralled and enraptured because Allah had given him the gift of such a creation. Allah swt said to him, O Muhammad, are you happy with this creation? He (s) said 'Yes my Lord.' Allah said 'I am giving them to you in trust to keep, to be responsible for and to return to me just as I gave them to you.' The Prophet (s) said, 'O my Lord I accept.' Allah asked again, 'Do you accept?' The prophet Muhammad (s) said 'O my Lord I accept, I accept.' As he finished replying the third time, Allah swt granted him a vision of the sins and the many forms of misery, darkness and ignorance into which they were going to fall. When the Prophet (s) saw this he was dismayed, wondering how he would be able to bring them to his Lord as pure as in their original state...


SECRETS OF THE NAQSHBANDIYYA NAZIMIYYA SUFI ORDER PART 2 When Prophet Muhammad (s) saw this he was dismayed, wandering how he would be able to return them to his Lord as pure as in their original state. He said, 'O My Lord, what is this?' Allah replied, 'O My beloved, this is your responsibility. You have to return them to me as pure as I have them to you.' Then Sayyidina Muhammad (s) said, 'O my Lord, give me helpers to help me purify them, to sanctify their spirits and to take them from darkness and ignorance to the state of knowledge, of piety, of peace and love.' ______________________________ Then Allah Almighty and exalted, granted him a vision in which he informed him that out of his creation he had chosen 7,007 #Naqshbandi Saints. He told him, 'O my beloved, O #Muhammad, these saints are from the most distinguished saints that I created to help you in keeping this creation pure. Out of them are 313 who are in the highest, most perfect stage in the Divine presence. They are the inheritors of the 313 messengers. Then I am giving you 40 who are carrying the most distinguished powers. They are considered the pillar of saints. They are going to be the masters of their times. They are going to be the inheritors of the secrets of reality.

While the Prophet (s) was ascending to the Divine presence. Allah swt made him hear a Human voice. The voice was that of his friend and closest companion, Hazrat Abu Bakr As Siddique (q). The Prophet (s) was told by Allah swt to order Hazrat Abu Bakr As Siddique (q) to call all the Naqshbandi Saints: the 40, the 313 and the 7007 with all of their followers, in their spiritual forms, into the Divine presence. All were to receive those distinguished lights and blessings. ______________________________ Then Allah swt ordered Prophet (s), who ordered Hazrat Abu Bakr (q) to call the 124,000 saints of the other 40 Sufi ways and their followers to be given that light in the Divine presence. All of the Shaykhs began to appear in that gathering with all their followers. Allah swt then asked the Prophet (s) to look at them with his Prophetic power and light, and to lift them all to the station of trustworthy and the truthful. Allah swt said to the Prophet Muhammad (s) and the Prophet (s) said to the saints, 'All of you and all of your followers are going to be stars shining among human beings, to spread that light which I gave you in pre-eternity to all human beings on earth.' ______________________________ Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Adil (q) -" That is only one of the secrets that has been revealed about the Night of Ascension to the hearts of the saints through the transmission of the Golden Chain of the Naqshbandi Order." #SultanAlAwliya #ShaykNazimAnNaqshbandi #Sunni #Sunnah #SultanAndHisPrince #NaqshbandiyyaNazimiyya #ASWJ #ShaykhHishamKabbani

Transcript The Six Heavenly Names Allah Gave to Each Human Being - Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani - Saturday, Nov 08, 2014

SECRETS OPENED BY SHAH NAQSHBAND (QS), PART 1 We observed the Urs of Shah Naqshband (qs) and a great tajalli, heavenly Manifestation dressed everyone present and all those who say they are Naqshbandi, wherever they are! That is a general manifestation for those who call their names after Sayyidina Shah Naqshband (q), and it is not the name that makes the person but it is what Allah has granted that person that makes the person. You can call any person whatever you like of titles, but it doesn't mean anything if Allah doesn't call him or her by that name. .

 SECRETS OPENED BY SHAH NAQSHBAND (QS), PART 2 That is why to every person Allah gave seven names: one name in dunya that he will run through his life with, and six names in Heaven that he will be known by if he is a mu’min, or even if he is not a mu’min, an unbeliever. And now they are opening one inspiration, one reality that they never opened before, I never heard it and never my heart received it, but now it is coming because of the baraka of Sayyidina Shah Naqshband (q) and the baraka of our shuyukh, Sayyidi Shaykh `AbdAllah al-Fa`iz ad-Daghestani (q) and Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Adil (q)! .

 SECRET OPENED BY SHAH NAQSHBAND (QS), PART 3 And that inspiration is: the name we live with in dunya, where we face a lot of obstacles and problems, sometimes we are up and sometimes down, sometimes we cry and sometimes we laugh, that depends on what that name carries for that person. If you are Yusuf and he is Yusuf, you will see a different life to his life; you will have a life that suits that name according to your personality and he will live a life suitable to his name and personality. . But with the six remaining names you will be living a heavenly life, different than the life you are living in dunya, according to the name given to you. .

SECRETS OPENED BY SHAH NAQSHBAND (QS), PART 4 Names Given by Our Parents Carry Mixed Energy The name given to you in dunya is given by your parents, who have their own difficulties, and when they gave you that name it was blended with their negativity as well as their piety. So you will be affected by what they are dressed with of positivity and negativity, it will be dressed on you and that is why you see your life go up and down; sometimes it is good and sometimes you have problems until you die. .

SECRETS OPENED BY SHAH NAQSHBAND (QS), PART 5 There is no exception in that; whatever name you have been given in dunya, that name has its own characteristics of good and bad. The name is good, but you are blended by what your parents have of positivity and negativity. You are still a Muslim or a mu’min, but one day is up and one day is down. . The other six names, each one has its own life and whatever lifetime you are given in years you will live under that name in this life, whatever length, 70 years, 80 years, one year, teen years, and whatever you are on you will reflect that name with all its blueprints. Everyone has a blueprint and there are heavenly blueprints. . Sayyidi Shaykh Hisham Kabbani �� 8 November 2014 Courtesy of Sufilive.com _

_SECRETS OPENED BY SHAH NAQSHBAND (QS), PART 6 (We are discussing secrets opened by Shah Naqshband (qs) to our Masters on the occasion of his blessed urs.) _______ Of the six heavenly names you are carrying, no one knows them except Allah (swt) and whoever Allah has given that reality to see what cannot be seen. . The Prophet (s) said, "Allah said, 'I have prepared for My pious worshippers such things as no eye has ever seen, no ear has ever heard, and no one has ever thought of. All that is reserved in addition to all that you have seen is nothing." Then he recited, 'No soul knows what is kept hidden for them of joy as a reward for what they used to do.'“ (Narrated Abu Hurayrah, Bukhari) .

SECRETS OPENED BY SHAH NAQSHBAND (QS), PART 7 . Your Heavenly Names and Their Corresponding Levels in Heavens . If the Holy Ones who were given the secret of your heavenly names mention it to you in this life, that is a big ni`mat as it is a big trust that can move mountains! Every name of Paradise has a tajalli, heavenly manifestation that is different from every other name. They don’t resemble each other, although you see them as twins, but they have different characteristics. . People say there is no praying in Heavens and that is not correct; in Heaven you are entitled to all pleasures, that is correct, but angels are praying. Every breath in Heaven is prayer as you become eternal. Dunya is not eternal, and in Heavens you reach Eternal Life. . Sayyidi Shaykh Hisham Kabbani 8 November 2014 Courtesy of Sufilive.com 

_SECRETS OPENED BY SHAH NAQSHBAND (QS), PART 8 The Reality of Hoor al-`Ayn What is the real pleasure of life in Heaven? Some say it is the Hoor al-`Ayn, but that is not the goal of Awliya, their goal in Heavens is Allah (swt) and His Prophet (s). Allah gave Hoor al-`Ayn to mu’mins in a life that cannot be seen or described in dunya, so to give an understanding it was described as ‘Hoor al-`Ayn’ because on Earth people want a nice life. But the real meaning of ‘Hoor al-`Ayn,’ while the physical one is there, in the spiritual meaning the real goal is Allah (swt) and His Prophet (s), not Hoor al-`Ayn. . Mawlana Shaykh (q) said when Awliyaullah know the reality of Heavens and the reality of the difference between dunya and Akhirah, they feel the value of Hoor al-`Ayn is like spitting from the mouth; it does not give them real pleasure, which is to see Allah (swt), because He can be seen in Paradise! . Sayyid Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani 8 November 2014 Courtesy of Sufilive.com _

_SECRETS OPENED BY SHAH NAQSHBAND (QS), PART 9 . So what do you prefer, Hoor al-`Ayn or Ruyatullah, to see Allah (swt) in Paradise? Then what happens to Hoor al-`Ayn? If you get one look at Allah (swt) in Paradise, then the whole of Heavens does not mean anything! What matters is to be with that gaze and vision you saw in Paradise, so you ask for more, not less, to see more, to zoom in to get more depth. You want to ‘zoom in’ on the skies like on Google Maps and you can see more and more stars. In Paradise when you zoom in it never ends! When the Light of Allah appears, that is the Light of the Beautiful Names and Attributes as Allah doesn’t show a a form and about what He shows we can only express what Awliya said to us. .
