A Star in Heavens Is Assigned to You

Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

(audio cut) ...and we are beginning to say, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani ‘r-rajeem. Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmaani ‘r-Raheem. The sign of Islam is to say, bismillahi ‘r-Rahmaani ‘r-Raheem ! If anyone is saying, bismillahi ‘r-Rahmaani ‘r-Raheem, he just entered the circle of Islam, finished! Whoever is denying is getting out.

O People! As-salaamu `alaykum once again! Every time we are asking for heavenly blessings to rain on you! And heavenly blessings giving to you a real life. Don't think that your lives continue through material foods, making you to stand up. What is making you to be in existence is heavenly powers that everyone has a point up, that belongs to him. Therefore, it is from all knowledge of prophets that everyone that is living on Earth has one star. That star just appearing and the life of that person belongs to that star, because we can't be in life by eating and drinking, no! What you are eating and drinking is such an example that Allah Almighty is making His servants to enjoy themselves through eating and drinking, because our physical being is getting pleasure by eating and drinking so much that our physical belongs to animals' level. Therefore, we like to eat and drink more than everything, or else it was enough for a person to eat once through his whole life! But people are thinking what we are eating and drinking gives us to live, to grow up, and to reach our last day with our physical being. Therefore, people are running after it and it is a very wrong idea!

Real power is coming from heavens! But eating and drinking is only for our physical being, for enjoying. A person may be thirsty, almost dying, bringing a cup of water, drinking and standing up. That water is giving something to our bodies that is making it to be ready for accepting heavenly support. Or a person is going to die for hunger and you may give a cup of soup, drinking it and standing up, so quickly? Can't be! But it is a reason: real power that is making Mankind to move on Earth, going and coming, growing and dying, everything belongs to his star.

Therefore, this honor is only granted to the Children of Adam (a). SubhaanAllah! When Adam (a) was sent from Paradise to Earth, he kept himself from eating and drinking for forty days. Not once in the forty days was he eating or drinking, to show people that our lives are coming from heavens! Don't think that what you are eating and drinking is giving to you power for getting up, or growing up, and to live so many years, no! You must know, Adam (a) for forty days was only looking to his heavenly star, yamudduhu, providing him. May be also fifty days! May be also fifty years! Angels are not in need to eat or to drink. Their heavenly power is giving them that energy that you can't imagine how it is coming and going around their beings! One-thousand years, a million years, or a billion years angels have been in existence and they are not in need for eating or drinking. Man, when he is born, then his star is appearing there and that star is sending heavenly support to that one and his body through that power, and developing, developing, developing!

What do you think? Milk from their mothers is making a small baby to grow with milk? With milk? You can’t imagine! Milk by itself can’t do that, but Allah Almighty, our Creator, He is arranging everything with heavenly powers and making with milk the baby to grow. Not from milk, but when that new baby is born, his heavenly real being appearing, that is sending and making a new baby to grow, to grow, to grow. And when growing, that belongs his position to heavenly positions and subhaanAllahi 'l-`Aliyyu 'l-Adheem!

Man, they are thinking now that their lives are going to be through eating and drinking, or they are asking that their health is going to be through some tablets, or medicines. Leave them! Therefore, the lives of anbiya (prophets) is 100% heavenly. They are not using any medicine because their real power is coming from heavens to their bodies, and that body is standing up. Therefore, prophets can do something extraordinary, or incredible, they may do it. But now Muslims, and particularly Salafi `ulamas, they are not speaking to people, not saying, “O People! Don’t run after so many purposes on Earth. Why you are running? You are thinking that is going to make you to be on Earth forever? Why are you running? Why are you not looking up? Look up and you may see what is happening there, because eating and drinking is going to be a thick veil between you and heavenly levels."

But our `ulamas also going to be much more into materialistic life, and they are not talking anything about mystics, not taking any care for spirituality, why? Your value is through your physical being or your value is through your spiritual being? Why are you not warning people? Why are you not saying to people to wake up?! "O People, wake up and look how you are walking on Earth!" Think! But that thinking, from where is it coming to you? How can you think or imagine something? Is it from your material being or heavenly? Why are they not saying? And people are needy. (This is the) most needy time for Mankind to know this, such realities that we are not living for eating and drinking and drinking and eating, it is never giving us support in this life! SubhaanAllah, subhaanAllah.

People are not interested in such things. Shaytan is telling people only, "O People, you must work, you must give your last effort for collecting." What is the benefit in collecting gold, to collect diamonds, to collect rubies, to collect emeralds, to collect pearls; what is that? Is that our aim in life? What is that? Why are Salafi `ulamas not trying to wake up people? And their people are the most-gathering ones for jewels, for gold, for pearls, for treasures! Why are they not waking up? Why are they not warning them, "O People, you have not been created for these things!" What is that?

Once upon a time, a person was reaching treasures and opening and as he was looking, that is a big treasure full with emeralds, rubies, gold, diamonds, pearls, every kind of almaaz, precious stones, it is full. That person was shocked: "Ohhh, I am so lucky one. I am so lucky one to reach to that treasure!" And taking and finding a 'Dear' letter, written on it. "Look at what Allah Almighty is saying: (Mawlana Shaykh stands) ayyuhal salafiyoon:

فَاقْصُصِ الْقَصَصَ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ

faqsusu 'l-qasas la`allahum yatafakkaroon,

Tell them their stories so they may remember, (70:176)

Ayatul kareemah, from Holy Qur’an or not? faqsasu 'l-qasas, you are never saying any story, why? Why you are saying "Israelite"? What is Israelite? (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

O Salafi `ulamas! I am nothing, I am a weak servant, but something has just been sent from heavenly ones to my heart to remind you about some unchangeable stories or events. You may say "story," but they are saying, if you are saying such things, Salafi `ulamas and all doctors in Shari’ah, I am saying this from Shari’ah: faqsasu 'l-qassas all of them saying, qasas is "Israelite". All of their nation is descendents of Sayyidina `Ibraheem and Sayyidina Yaqoob. From so many tribes, hundreds and thousands of stories are coming to us! Allah Almighty is saying, la`allahum yatafakkaroon, "They may take a lesson from every story!" Story from old times, you may use it. But they are saying, “We are doctors, we are not qasas, storytellers.” No they are so proud to say, "We are speaking high knowledge!" High knowledge you are not understanding, even they are not understanding!

Once a person was coming to me and he was making a book about stories in Holy Qur'an, what belongs for stories, and I am looking. First I am looking and I am saying, “There is one ayah, verse that you are never remembering!” How many times I am making Holy Qur’an from first to end, from end to beginning but what is that? And I am saying. “Allah Almighty faqsusu 'l-qasas la`allahum yatafakkaroon” He said to me, "I am someone that has never heard or never recited this ayatul kareemah!"

Very important, but Salafi `ulamas are so proud ones, they don't like to say about stories of Israel. Why Israel, one-thousand prophets coming to them, and one-thousand stories coming and prophets saying, leave! Prophets saying, Holy Qur'an saying, and a little bit further they tried to say, Holy Qur'an also Israelite. Everything Israelite? What is that? All these doctors are so kibru un-nafs, so proud ones that they are not speaking as story tellers saying, “no we are doctors” what is your doctor? Say one story then when you are saying story. People are looking like this (eyes open) but when saying this and that according to their understanding (eyes closed, sleeping) people beginning to sleep! This story may be just happened or not, it doesn't matter. Al-qasas, faqsusu 'l-qasas, there is just appointed tales or for every tales, it is okay? You can say, you can take some ibrah, wisdom!

That person when he found this treasure and looking, he was astonished and happy. But he found on the treasure a letter of ‘Dear,’ taking and reading on it, what was it saying? "O that one, who will find one day this treasure, it did belong to.” Look today some lessons, O Salafi `ulamas! O doctors in Shari’ah! Saying, "I am the owner, maalik. I am that king that my territory is from east to west, from north to south and I collected that treasure. But the Lord of Heavens Who created me was testing me; more than testing, ibtilah, trying and asking to show who is coming after me for all nations. I am the emperor and king from east to west. I collected this, but my Lord, because I was not saying, shukr, I am not saying, 'O my Lord, thanks to You,' and ibtalari trying me and He sent qah, drought to my country where I was, and everything dried, waters drying, fields and gardens drying, nothing! And people were dying form hunger and thirst.

I was also asking for eating and drinking and I sent one basket full with gold to go to town and say, "Who can give me one piece of food and one cup of water, give this to him." From morning up to the evening, going around and no one finding to give one cup of water or one piece of bread for me. Second day, I am ordering that basket to be empty and put in it pearls, diamonds, the most expensive ones, and go and ask from people, "Who may give one cup water or one piece of bread, give this to them." Again they are going from morning up to evening but they can't find anyone to give one piece of bread or one cup of water.When I was hopeless, I ordered those jewels to be crushed and ground, and they found a small cup of water, bringing and mixing this crushed diamonds and pearls with that water, and I drank it. They made my insides to lock up and I died. "

O People! Look and take wisdom. What is the benefit? I am saying, why are you not saying such stories to kings, to awliyas, to shaykhs, to`ulamas, to sultans? Why are you not saying? If Allah Almighty is making this for you, what are you going to do?

O People! Don't trust what you are collecting, but you must trust in your Lord, Almighty Allah, and ask for heavenly support. Don't think you are going, coming, walking, and standing from your physical being, but everything that belongs to you is from that heavenly star granted to you. Be thankful to your Lord. Be obedient, try to be obedient servants for your Lord, Almighty Allah. You will be saved here and Hereafter! Fallahu khayrun hafizhan. Tawbah yaa Rabbee. Tawbah yaa Rabbee. Tawbah yaa Rabbee.
