(Suhbah in progress.) ...everything changes, but Allah (swt) will give life and we will be organized. We have to pray to Allah to give life in our hearts, which is Haqiqat Muhammadiyya, the Muhammadan power. Through him Allah (swt) loves the Ummah. Sayyidina Muhyiddin Ibn `Arabi (q) said in his Futuhat that Allah doesn’t need to look at us in the way we know, under a microscope examining us one by one; Allah will say “Kun fa yakoon!” and from one iraadah to another the action is there. We are under the actions of Awliyaullah to whom Allah permitted to show miracles. That is why Ibn `Arabi (q) said that when Allah created Creation and He left it to Sayyidina Muhammad (s). Don’t think that iraadatullah is not valuable: it is very valuable, and has a power that can reach everyone by Allah’s Order.

Sayyidina Muhyiddin Ibn `Arabi (q) said Allah wanted to see His Ummah, so He created Creation. When Prophet (s) takes that Noor that Allah dressed on him, he keeps it untouched until permission comes, and that’s why today you see everything in dunya is turned around 360 degrees. This Ummah is not so powerful without Sayyidina Muhammad (s), because through the Prophet (s), Allah opened for him all power of Creation.Khalaqatul khalq wa bihi `arifoonee, “I created Creation and through the Creation they knew Me.” We don't know Allah except through Muhammad (s), and this is not kufr, this is the Greatness that Allah gave him (s)! They are, this Ummah is not so powerful without Sayyidina Muhammad (s).

الرَّحْمَنُ عَلَّمَ الْقُرْآنَ خَلَقَ الْإِنسَانَ عَلَّمَهُ الْبَيَانَ

(God) Most Gracious! It is He Who taught the Qur'an. He created Man. He taught him speech (and intelligence). (Surat ar-Rahmaan, 55:1-4)

Allah (swt) is Ar-Rahmaan, Khalaq al-khalq thumma `Adamahu. He created Creation, then dissolved it. Khalaqtul-khalq wa bihi `aarafoonee, He created Creation and erased them, because they are not real: Reality is for Sayyidina Muhammad (s). Spontaneously this came up when I was thought about what to say. “The Merciful taught the Qur’an, created human beings, and He then erased them.” Ibn `Arabi (q) said in his Futuhat, Khalaq bi Rasool akhrajaum ad-dunya, He brought them to dunya through Rasool (s), “He created the Creation and with the Prophet (s) made them appear in dunya.”

Look how many people are here, and everyone has a Light like a rainbow that is connected to Prophet (s), who knows how, but not as we think. When we say “Muhammad” (s), we are not calling the wrong way, we are calling the right way, which is that he is our guide that can do everything and we cannot do anything. Allah created Creation and made everyone need Prophet (s). That is why you have to follow the law: Allah (swt) created that law and He wants everyone to follow it, although there is the Reality of the Prophet (s), which is impossible to reach. He is the one whom when you say “Muhammad (s)” it comes between two Meems: the ‘Meem’ in the first and the one in the last. M-u-h-a-m-m-a-d. Yaa Sayyidina, yaa Rasoolullah, yaa Rahmatan lil-`Alameen hadarna bi hudoorika yaa Sayyidanaa, we came to your Presence!

Muhammadun Rasoolullah walladheena ma`ahu ashidaa'u `alaa ‘l-kuffaar ruhamaau baynahu ashidda `ala nafsik al-insaan al-latta hiyya masdar al-kufr wa thumma hiyya masdar al-inaara laha siffataan. It has two characteristics: one Rahmaaniyya and one Shaytaaniyya, and Rasoolullah (s) wants us to follow the Rahmaniyya. How much you can follow it depends on your cleverness, although at the end you will be under his shafa`a. But let us not make Prophet (s) ashamed on the Day of Judgement, as he will be in the Presence of Allah making shafa`ah for his Ummah. May Allah (swt) forgive us. law adrak al-`alam Haqiqat al-Nabi, Haqiqat al-meem dhakaana lama kuntaa tarra ayyu shay’in ghayra Muhammad (s). If human beings knew the Reality of Sayyidina Muhammad (s), they will not see other than him, the whole dunya would disappear! And when you say “Muhammad”, that is what they want from us. May Allah (swt) let us say “Muhammad” and let them take us into their umbrella. This is dunya; if you look you might see something moving, but in Reality it is imaginary, it is not the one that is moving, it is something else. We need to be careful in what Allah (swt) loves from us.

Wa min Allahi 't-tawfeeq, bi hurmati 'l-Fatihah.
