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

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. .

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!’” . As-Sayyid Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani �� . 18 September 2014 Bury, UK

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

 Source -    


 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. TO BE CONTONUED

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. . Sayyid Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani 8 November 2014 Courtesy of Sufilive.com

 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)! . Sayyid Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani 8 November 2014 Courtesy of Sufilive.com


 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. . Sayyidi Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani 8 November 2014 Courtesy of Sufilive.com


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. . Sayyidi Shaykh Hisham Kabbani 8 November 2014 Courtesy of Sufilive.com

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) . Sayyidi Shaykh Hisham Kabbani 8 November 2014 Courtesy of Sufilive.com 

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. .

atee'oollah wa atee'oor-rasula wa uli'l-amri minkum

 Excerpt from Mawlana Shaykh Hisham (q) after Zuhur Subha of 10/18/2014 - taken from SufiLive Chatlog

a'udhu billah mina 'sh-shaytani 'r-rajeem Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem
  la hawla wa la quwatta illa billahi-l`aliyyi'l-`azheem
  salam 'alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh

Wherever you are lovers of Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Adil may Allah bless his soul, and lovers of Grandshaykh 'Abdullah al-Fa'iz ad-Daghestani (q) may Allah bless his soul,
  and may Allah bless all our souls for the baraka of the Prophet (s)
  for the love of the Prophet (s) ya Rabbee, Ya Allah bless our souls as you blessed the souls of your awliya, and a you blessed the souls of your prophets and as you bless those souls who don't deserve but out of your mercy you dress them when you like so dress us as well.
  atee'oollah wa atee'oor-rasula wa uli'l-amri minkum
  obey Allah, obey the Prophet (s) and obey those who are on authority.
 One time grandshaykh may Allah bless his soul, he was reading this verse of Holy Qur'an, obey Allah, obey the Prophet (s) and obey those who are on authority and he reads this in every suhbat and read this in every prayer and he say this is the head of every amal we have to do, to say to our ego, our body to our heart, to say, obey Allah , o my organs, my body, my ego, my hands, heart, head obey Him, when we read that ayah the secret of obedience will dress us.
  When we read that ayah, Allah's `itaat will dress us, then we recite kalimat at-tawheed, that oneness will reach us and to declare from heart, body, mind that there Allah is Creator and that everyone is servant. and why He said la ilaha ill 'Llah Muhammad rasoolullah, there the kalimat at-tawheed ends. that means that the Prophet (s) is the servant of Allah swt.
  So when we say kalimat at-tawheed it clears all shortcoming when we say la ilaha ill 'Llah Muhammad rasoolullah it clears you of all shortcomings. to say la ilaha ill 'Llah Muhammad rasoolullah the unbeliever all his sins are gone when you declare your Islam it will clear everything that was before today
  and like when you clean your computer, you remove all information that you typed in there as if you have new computer. so when you say la ilaha ill 'Llah Muhammad rasooullah la ilaha ill 'Llah clear everything you have done. and it brings you clean and that is the person who is converting. Allah (swt) guiding him to Islam. so what you think that is for non-Muslim who spent all his time in doing all kind of sins., what you think then for a Muslim will say la ilaha ill 'Llah Muhammad rasoolullah what wil he get?
  If a non-Muslim gets clearance, like today they say to work in govt or company they have to get clearance. and if you pass then you can work there and how many go rejected because they could not pass that. but la ilaha ill 'Llah clears you of everything it clears you to enter Paradise.
  Look, the greatness of Kalimat at-tawheed. that is for non-Muslim, what then for a Muslim saying Kalimat at-tawheed, they will get as in Bukhari, that ma la `aynun ra'at wa la udhunun sami`at wa la khatar `ala qalbi bashar. they will get what no eye has ever seen. that means whatever you see in this whole universe will not be what you get in Paradise, what you see int his whole universe with all its greatness, might be an atom of what you get in Paradise.
  Ma la `aynun ra'at means something never seen in dunya... so that is what you get dressed with servanthood dress, what no eye has ever seen and no one ear from beginning of Sayyidina Adam (as) to Judgment Day never an ear was able to hear what Allah is going to give you in Paradise of its greatness, wa la udhunu sami`at, never an ear in dunya will be able to hear what Allah is giving in akhira. hellfire for mumin, for converts for Muslims it is completely gone it is cleared.
: ...correct? so let us clear ourselves. Allah said in Holy Qur'an wa laa tuzakoo anfusakum, dont praise  yourself. so when Allah(swt) says don't praise yourself it means don't come to Me with an ego, come to Me with weakness and helplessness and ask to say la ilaha ill 'Llah
  When we say la ilaha ill 'Llah then Allah(swt) will dress us with what is hidden to the eye and it cannot see or comprehend and wa laa khatar `ala qalbi bashar what cannot be grasped by human mind it cannot. that is why Allah(swt) said in Holy Qur'an where we can get that clearance,
  alladeena yadhkuroonallalh qiyaman wa qu`oodan wa `ala junoobihim those are the ones whose files have been cleared up, those who are dhaakireen Allah. those who are mamking dhikrullah remembering Allah swt..
  How that clearance, the evidence of the clearance is the hadith of the Prophet (s) where he says that Allah says anaa jaleesu man dhakaranee. that means He is so near to the one who remembers Allah because he has been cleared up that dhikrullah has purified him of every sin lkike an angel and at that time will be dressed with Allah's(swt) Beautiful Names and Attributes and that is from saying ati`eeollalh.
  and that is obey Me my servant ati`anee ya `abdee. that sami`na wa ata`na. we hear and we obey. we are sinful we have shortcomings . so what we have to do? we have to say la ilaha ill 'Llah Muhammad rasoolullah we will be cleared up, by saying kalimat at-tawheed. Allah loves that sentence. you will be cleared up completlyl and when cleared then heavens opened for you completely. Allah says whn you do that you beome of the those who remember Allah(swt) standing and sitting and laying down. That means 24 hours because either you are either standing, sitting and laying down. to rmemeber Allah(swt) all the time, whatever you are doing, wherever you are, at work, at home, at market. remembering Allah(swt) and at that time Allah(swt) allows you to make tafakkur
  Those who think about heavenly and  earth. those Allah(swt) will direct to have contemplation and to have ma`rifat and `irfan to have all these levels of spirituality.All this coming under la ilaha ill 'Llah. and grandshaykh said, when you say la ilaha ill 'Llah, as if you have performed all 500 orders of `ibada. As there are 500 orders of ibadah and 800 forbideens and as if you have comleted them by saying ati`eeoollah, that word has a magnificent power that it will take you all the way to the Divine Presence.
  Even you didn't do anything for it, only read it, ati`eeoollah, that is why he said the head of every lecture is atee'oollah wa atee'oor-rasula wa uli'l-amri minkum

and that ati`eeollah will take you as if you have perforemed all 500 obligations and as if you have thrown away all 800 forbiddens. so you get both as if you have performed all five pillars of Islam and all six pillars of faith .and that is why it is important to recite atee'oollah wa atee'oor-rasula wa uli'l-amri minkum 100 x or 70 x or 10 times. and that verse will boost you like to day they say did you boost your post. boost it. and then you will be as if you did all the 500 obligations and left all 800 forbideens when you say la ilaha ill 'Llah Muhammad rasoolullah.
  When you say that you are saying that Sayyidina Muhammad (s) is al-Mukhtar al-Mustafa that Allah(swt) has perfected him and dressed him and he is the master of human beings. adaam wa man doonah tahta liwaee yawm al-qiyamah ana sayyid walidi adaam wa la fakhr
  Sayyidina Adam (as) and all other than him under my flag on Judgment Day. and I am the master of the Children of Adam on Judgment Day and I say without pride.
  ... Grandshaykh 'Abdullah al-Fa'iz ad-Daghestani (q) used to say o Allah(swt) share me with the worshIp and prayers of the Prophet (saw)
  We have to say, o Allah(swt) let us share in the ibadah of the Prophet (s), we cannot do it but he can do it. he is Sayyid al-Bashar and not only that he is Sayyid al-Kawnayn ath-Thaqalayn He is the master of all creation as a servant of Allah swt.
  So when we say Muhammad Rasoolullah we are accepting to follow him.. and Allah(swt) says you want to follow you want to say la ilaha ill 'Llah and be dresed wtih that in kuntum tuhiboonallah ... qul ya Muhammad, say to them Muhammad, if you really love Allah(Swt) that is a condition. you love Kalimat at-tawheed then you love to dressed obedience and you get clearance to be with the Prophet (s) and to enter paradise. then you have clearance to be with the Prophet (s) in every moment. they know what they gave us.
  When you say that verse atee'oollah wa atee'oor-rasula wa uli'l-amri minkum it is as if you accomplished the order in the verse wa ma ataakumurasoola fa khudhoohu wa ma nahaakum `anhu fantahoo
What the Prophet (s) brought take and what the Prophet (s) forbade leave it. and look difference how awliyaullah look at that ayah vs what ulama look at that ayah. one is fruit and the other is perfect fruit a tree of fruit.
  You like a tree full of colors red yellow and orange, and you look another tree is only green. which one takes your eyes ore. the one with the colors. so you wil have the green as awliyaullah and the colorful one. ulamma have one the green one. awliyaullah have both so you will be a rainbow of ibadah.
  Wa ulil-amri minkum, here are awliyaullah and ulama al-Ummah .and they are ulama and same time awliyaullah . because awliyaullah are educated they studied Shariatullah al-ghuraa al-mutahharah they studied it and as we said in previous times you could not get bayat from your Shaykh until you studied Shariah completely, because this is the trunk the rest are branches. if the trunk will go the branches go.
  So you have to obey daily in your life I am following the Prophet (s) in His Shariah and guided by wali ullah through shariah and there are levels. there are ulama same time awliyaullah and there are ulama same time not Awliya.
