Abandon Your Narrow Perception of Heavens

Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

18 January 2010 Lefke, Cyprus

(Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

Bismillah. Yaa Sultan, madad, madad.

La ilaaha illa-Llah, la ilaaha illa-Llah, la ilaaha illa-Llah Muhammadun Rasoolallah (s). Jalali wal Jamal. Sultaan Allah, Sultaan al-Awliya, O our master of this planet, controlling everything on it! (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

O Salafi `ulama, marhaban! We are saying through our association here, how it is going to be possible for one man to control the whole of this world? You may object on it. We are nothing and I am a weak servant. That One who is controlling this world is leaving me here to address people as they like. Not as I like, not as my wish, no. I am a weak speaker on behalf of holy ones whose relations belongs to the heavens. I am sitting here and they are saying, "Speak to people about what we are sending to you. Speak to them. We are not asking from your knowledge."

"Your knowledge" means to be such a weak servant. What is going to be my capital? Nothing. But they are saying, "Sit down and speak." Those that are asking about enjoyment, my enjoyment is who are asking to understand something and to be powerful for their Lord's worship, yes! Sending something, as what an ant is asking to have something and that is granted. That ant is such a small grant from that qutb, pole of this planet, when it has been offered and ordered to whole people. You may say, "An ant? What can it do on such a big planet?" You may say it is impossible. Everything is impossible for you, but it is possible for the Creator!

Are you understanding Arabic or not? What is the Lord saying, wa huwa `ala kulli shayin qadir. He has such a power that He can do anything He likes! He may make an announcement through all ants, through the ants' valley. It is not for that ant, but for the Lord of Creation. He is asking to show from His Endless Ability or Capacity or His Divinely Power, it is too much to say. Very, very, very, very short spot from the Lord of Heavens, that He has countless heavens. What is mentioned for us? Seven levels. Is it impossible for there to be eight levels? Is it impossible for there to be eight billion levels? Is it impossible to be billions, trillions times levels? Is it possible or impossible?

Allah Almighty is saying, "I can do everything and My order is only to say kun faya kun!" Make your understanding, Salafi `ulamas, a little bit wider. Don't imprison your understanding in a very, very short distance. Do it as much as you can imagine. For example, you may say such a number that after one should be trillions and trillions zeroes. It is nothing for the Creator, Lord Allah Almighty. His power, His ability and His capacity has no limits. But for you it is in limits, yes. You must try to get out from your thinking limits.

O Salafi `ulama, you must try to understand more and more about kulli shayin qadir kulli shay, that He is able to create anything that you are imagining, reaching from six directions, and He may create if His Divinely Will yaa fa'alak, is reaching towards that Creation. He is saying "Be!" and it is just in existence. He may say, "Don't be!" and everything disappears from where they are coming, up to where they are going! You must correct your beliefs about distinguishing from what you mean. What do you mean? I am asking you to give an explanation or give me a commentary for an ant, that its Creator is ordering that ant to speak, yes. To whom? (...) ant and put through your ear, you can hear anything. Yes. You can this and you can understand? No. But that ant, by holy command that is coming through (...) anything. (audio not clear)

He is One, He is not using two representatives. No, it must be one. And you are reciting the Holy Qur'an and in the Holy Qur'an you are saying astaa`idhu billah:

وَإِذْ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلْمَلاَئِكَةِ إِنِّي جَاعِلٌ فِي الأَرْضِ خَلِيفَةً

wa idh qaala rabbuka lil-malaikati innee ja`ilun fil-ardi khalifa.

When Your Lord (O Muhammad) said to the angels, "Indeed I am making a deputy on Earth." (Al-Baqara, 2:30)

What does khalifah mean? We may say one representative, no second representative. If Allah wants, the whole Mankind they are deputies. But through the deputies, who is representing the Lord of Heavens? Therefore, a Sultan may have eleven sons, eleven sons, all of them are deputies, one to be Sultan's successor. Heh? But others, no. Other princes, they can't be the full representative, no. The full representative is the crown prince, and he is one. Now, he is not like like one of you. Allah Almighty is saying:

وَمَا مُحَمَّدٌ إِلاَّ رَسُولٌ

wa maa Muhammadun illa Rasool,

and Muhammad is not except a prophet. (3:144)

...heh? Most honored identity of Sayyidina Muhammad (s), you are saying that he is one other?? No, your identity is something else and his identity is something other.

Therefore, now in our days, the real identity is for the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s). Who is that one?! Like you? He is never going to be like you! Shaytan, he was thinking that. Shaytan is never accepting that Sayyidina Muhammad (s) is the representative of the Lord of the whole Creation! Therefore, he was becoming a dog. Shaytan is a dog.

He seems good.....he is not for ... another... no. Angels are coming and looking to Adam and making sajdah and going. Adam (a) was surprised, saying, "O my Lord, they are coming, looking at my existence, looking on my body for that love of You, My Lordship."

Allah Almighty is making Salafi `ulamas say that it is munkar, no you are doing munkar. You are doing munkar, that is alright. But you are in prison, you are in prison, your understanding is on a small square. You are not able to get out to know about that one (s), the representative of the Lord of Heavens! Oohh. And making this when they are hearing Kalimatu 'sh-Shahadah, Ash-hadu an La ilaaha illa-Llah wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadur Rasoolallah and kissing thumbs. In childhood I was doing that when reciting, Alhamdulillah... for me, yes, sadaqah Rasoolallah (s).

His value, his value no one can imagine. It is out of our imagination! Who is Muhammad (s)? You are saying he was one person from our tribe, only this, anything else? Do you think that he had two heads, four hands, ten? No! He was saying, "O my as-haab," because when he was moving with people, he was making people walk in front of him and not to keep your back from anyone else. Therefore, I am putting you in front to be in safety, and I am in the back because I am not looking ... my face ... is also, back, taraf (direction) back of my head. I am looking and I am saying, don't worry for me. It is written in the holy books or not?

Just like yourself, how can it be? How can it be? How can it be! Like you, if he is like you, do you also do what he did?! You are so proud, saying, "We are doctors, PhD doctors in Shari'ah." What is a "doctor in Shari'ah"? There are people living now in our days who are so needy to have some spirituality to make them rest through their eternal lives, and they ask you, "Are you believing in the Seal of Prophets?"


"How was he?"

They are saying,"It is not our maqsood, aim." It is not our aim when we are asking you and you are giving an explanation (that our Prophet [s] is) an ordinary person. No! He wasn't like an ordinary person. His holy name was raised up to la ilaaha illa-Llah Muhammadur Rasoolallah! He is not an ordinary person! You are wrong ones, you are not saying what is true! You must say!! Astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah. It is easy to say, "We are Salafi `ulama."

Yaa Rabbee.

Fatihah. Forgive us and bless ourselves.
