Always Ask for More in the Divine Presence

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

31 October 2009 Lefke, Cyprus

(Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, laa ilaha illa-Llah, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, wa lillahi ‘l-hamd!

Alfu salaat, alfu salaam `ala sayyidi ‘l-awwaleen wa ‘l-aakhireen habeeb Rabbi ‘l-`alameen Sayyidina Muhammad!

We have been honored to be from his nation and we must say daily alhamdulillah, thanks to the Lord of Heavens, that He Almighty granted us from His endless blessings to be His most honored and glorified nation. O people, be thankful to our Lord! O our master, master in our days, master for this world, for this planet, for Adam’s children! He is now one of the most blessed ones. The pole of this world is looking after everything up to ants. Ants, never left to themselves, no. Who created them is taking care of the whole Creation. Allah Almighty, `azheemu ‘s-shaan, He is Almighty! No one knows the real being of the Lord of Heavens and the Creator of creatures. No one knowing, but He is granting whole creatures a being to be something in existence. He is creating! An atom can’t be in existence by itself. No one can create himself by himself. Impossible! How? Because we are creatures, we are not Creator. Creator is only One. Therefore, for whole of Creation in existence, their Creator is Allah Almighty (swt.)

(Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

We can’t say He is responsible; no, the responsibility is for creatures. You may be responsible for yourself or for others, and your responsibility going to be in Divine Presence. You are going to be questioned about your responsibility. But no one can ask Allah Almighty, because He is the Creator and He is not responsible to anyone. That is our Lord’s Attribute. He is never responsible for anything, because no one can ask Him, “What did You do or what are You doing?” No. The last level is reaching to Him. He may ask everything about their responsibility, because everything is responsible to their Creator in the Divine Presence. An ant is responsible according to the main wisdom for its creation. An atom also has a responsibility; they are living ones also. No one in creation is dead, no. Every creature through Heavens, through endless dominions of Allah and through His endless oceans is full with creatures. Everything is responsible, yes.

We are saying, dastoor yaa Sayyidee, yaa Sultan al-Awliya. We are asking a heavenly support for our understanding, our capacity, our ability. We are in need for a support; everything in existence needs a support as without heavenly support, nothing is going to appear in existence. This big globe has a responsibility through itself and on itself and inside itself. No one knows what is inside that globe, and no one can understand what is on it, what is through its oceans, or what is in it. No one can reach it, and it is such a small thing through Heavenly Oceans!

O people, As-salaamu `alaykum wa rahmutullahi wa barakaatuh. Welcome to you. What shall we do? I am a weak servant and I have been offered for addressing to people as much as my words reaching to them. I am responsible; they are putting that responsibility on me. Therefore, I am sitting here and addressing to you for your benefit. If you are trying to take some benefit, you are lucky and you are winning! If you are not taking care, you are losing. I am not losing, I am paid. If you are taking care or not taking care, I am paid. I am a weak servant. The Lord of this world giving heavenly authority to one man, one; it is enough, even more than enough. That one can take care of everything through oceans, under oceans, over oceans, on continents, from east to west, from west to east, from north to south, from south to north. Okay!

Allah Almighty appointing one servant whose important duty to look after everything on this planet. Finished! He has such a complete power. The order of the Lord of Heavens giving something to that person, this heavenly authority just loaded on him, even may be just one atom. If loaded from the Lord of Heavens for a mission, he can carry and this is not difficult. To carry an atom, how can it be? You can’t do it, but the Creator can do it. If He is willing something to be, He is saying only “Be” and going to be. If saying to an atom, “Carry this globe,” it easily carried. This is a preface for understanding our Creator’s Attributes. How many attributes are we saying, 4, 8, 12? But He Almighty grants His servants to know 4, 8, or 12 that they can carry. If He likes, He may give a thousand attributes; He has more than one-thousand. If He grants to His exceptional servants, He may give one-billion or more or less. He may give; it is not difficult for the Lord, if He is saying, “Be.”

Such associations making our understanding to be much more wide. As much as our understanding is getting wider, according to the capacity of understanding in our minds, we are getting much more brightened. According to our brightness, coming lights from Enlightened Dominions, and you are going to be such a Creation that you can’t understand about yourself, what is happening to you. What about for the Creator? This is making a wider entrance as much as He likes, making it wider for understanding

O people, as-salaamu `alaykum! I am asking from the Lord of Heavens to give us much more wideness through our hearts and through our understanding. This gives us a pleasure you can’t imagine. That brightening and enlightening reaching to our real being, getting such pleasure, you can’t imagine it. SubhaanAllah, Glory for the Lord, for Allah Almighty and all prophets that are coming and asking to carry our understanding from stock market to take it away. Dunya is a stock market and the Lord of Heavens never likes His servants to stay in stock market, no.

(Allah says,) “Leave that and come to Me. O my Servants, leave that and come to see what I have prepared for you for Eternity. I am that One Who is honoring you.” Allah (swt) is addressing to His servants, “O My Servants, I am that One Who created you and asking to honor you more and more.” Therefore, our real being is asking from its Lord, hal min mazeed, “Is there any more?” O our Lord, we are asking more and more like a fish, as it is our physical beings’ attribute, never saying “enough”. The Lord of Heavens saying, “Here (in dunya) it is enough for you only for a short time. Ask more and more in My Divine Presence (where) I am preparing for everyone a present.”

Allahu akbar! O my Lord’s servants, try to make your work day and night to be for servanthood!

(Allah says), “You can’t find anything through your life, only what you are doing for Me. Physically or financially or through your thinking, for every occasion through your temporary life, ask Me and I shall give you more. What I am giving, use it for Me. Everything that is for you, make for Me, use it for My servanthood and not for anyone else, no. I shall grant you pleasure here for a short time but after this life, those who are reaching to My real life, I am giving oceans through My endless dominions. You will find and you are asking hal min mazeed, ‘Is there more, O our Lord?’“

Giving an example, a small fish or big fish, their mouth always open as if they are asking to swallow whole ocean. That is a sign teaching people. O People, (regarding Allah’s Favors) don’t say, “enough”! Say, hal min mazeed, “Is there more, O our Lord?” Look that fish is running and asking to drink a whole ocean and giving a lesson that Man cannot forget. O people, the end of this world approaching and the main reason that making troubles for Man is everyone asking to reach everything on this globe. It is false or true? Take your share of what is written for you! It is enough, because when you are leaving this life you are not taking anything with yourself to graveyard.

It is a big chance from Allah Almighty that we have been created as Man, who is glorified by being the deputy of the Lord of Heavens. One just granted such an honor. O people, look, listen, and run on it. Everything helping you in this life to reach to endless Glory Oceans, leading you to endless Pleasure Oceans leading you to endless Wisdom Oceans, leading you to endless Beauty Oceans, unlimited oceans through unlimited dominions of the Lord of divinely levels.

May Allah forgive us. As-salamu `alaykum.

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, `Azeez Allah

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Kareem Allah

Time is over and the main purpose for this association just reached to its last point. Therefore, if they are closing this, it is going to be for some wisdoms that giving our real being such an enjoyment. They are going to be like drunk ones and that is the why sometimes they are cutting it down before 45 minutes or more (to end the suhbah quicker).

O People, as-salaamu `alaykum! We changed the time to the night here, because in our country daytime going to be very short now. We changed it to be after `Isha praying so that we have enough distance for working on it. May Allah forgive us and give us a good understanding to be His favored, blessed, brightened, enlightened and glorified servants for the honor of that most glorified one, Sayyidina Muhammad (s). (Mawlana stands for honor of Prophet and sits.)

(39 minutes)

Okay, they may sit down now, our listeners. And some of them saying, “Ahhh, rest. O my brother, open your eyes.”

“What is Shaykh saying there? What happened? What happened to flea market or stock market? What is happening?”

“O my brother, always you are thinking on stock market. Look what he said about stock market.”

“Going up or going down?”

Tawbah, astaghfirullah. Be happy, our listeners! We are simple person. We are not speaking high English or we haven’t such a knowledge that making people to sleep more. I am making little bit sleepy, doesn’t matter!

Fatihah. (41 minutes)

Okay. (smiling and making du`a)

Allah gives whoever is listening such a declaration, to be happy here and Hereafter. We are asking from the Lord of Heavens to give them pleasure, to give them health and wealth and contentment here and Hereafter. What we shall do? Yes sir. I am trying to buy a horse carriage and I am speaking on this carriage much better! (Mawlana mimics holding reins of a horse.) People should be very happy; for 2010 I am bringing a new-fashion car with horses, yes sir. And I am preparing one of our followers to use whip on them! (Mawlana laughs.) What shall we do? We must be happy, always for our Lord’s endless a`taa, favors. Countless thanks to you, O our Lord, Almighty Allah!

(45 minutes)

Enough, because after this they are asking me from where they can buy it. I can’t find. Allahu akbar. (343 watching) Shukran lillah. For whole America, this time better for them. Allahu akbar. Allah gives happiness to our listeners and from His holy lights to be healthy and wealthy here and in His Divine Presence. Let them make du`a for me. I am weak.
