[Mureeds greet Mawlana and praise Sayyidina Muhammad (s).]
Alhamdulillahi Rabbi ‘l-`Aalameen wa al-`aqibatu li 'l-muttaqeen wa laa `udwaana illa `ala azh-zhaalimeen. Alhamdulillahi katheeratin milla ‘s-samaawaati wa 'l-ardhi wa na`oodhu billahi min shuroori anfusina wa min sayyiaati `amaalina man yahdillah fa laa mudilla lahu wa man yudlill fa laa haadiya lah.
They used to say to us when we were young, “If you see the shaykh, run towards him.” It is not for the shaykh to run to you, you have to run, and alhamdulillah all of you are running towards the shaykh.
When Grandshaykh (q) was alive, and we heard that he is coming up the steep hill (Jabal Qasiyoun), we were at his house on top of the hill, and the walk up the hill was long, like 2 km. And we ran towards Grandshaykh (q), who was the shaykh at that time, in order to get his barakah, because it is carried by Awliyaullah. The baraka you receive is not because you did this or that; you did the calculation, but no! It is carried by angels from the one who has more barakah.
He ran to us and we ran to him from the top of the hill to the bottom, and when he saw that he was very happy, and said, “My students are getting the barakah Prophet (s) gave to me.”
We are excused because we are in a different time and century but it is better to stand up for the shaykh when he comes. We immediately gave salaam and we need to keep this adab, and there are so many examples of how much Awliyaullah love their shuyookh, and how much difference there is in understanding.
Alhamdulillah, Allah (swt) sent us to a place, like a seclusion, to teach us the great value of the shaykh. The shaykh doesn’t benefit anything from us, except to show the love the mureed shows the shuyookh, and this way the mureed and shaykh will be related. So try to benefit from these small times, try to be together as much as possible, and Allah (swt) will raise you. What does it mean "to raise you"? To raise you is to carry you above the wings of angels. You cannot get that in dunya, and mostly they give you that in Akhirah.
Grandshaykh, may Allah bless his soul, said, “My mureeds are going to enter Paradise.” [Subhanallah]. And no one said subhanallah except one. In fact, the mureeds are fighting with each other about who is going to sit on the chair, how many days the shaykh has left. Yes, that’s what goes on. Instead of saying, “I am the lamb of the shaykh, I sacrifice myself for my shaykh.” Where is that? That adab will carry you by angels to a place you never imagined in dunya! You will run towards them as a baby runs towards his mother and father.
But we don’t see that; what we see is only people talking behind the shaykh talking without adab. Instead it has to be with adab, but it is not. And the most important adab is to always be the best towards the shaykh. But astaghfirullah, like all, instead of doing that we see them fighting each other.
The one who has complete adab might have a chance to be with the shaykh, along with some others who have been promised in dunya to be with the shaykh. They must be polite and carry that cleanliness in order to be able to be lifted up. Keep your love to your shaykh and don’t worry, but love with imaan is love times love, love squared! [...]
That [adab] is the key, but it doesn’t open just with the key: (to be complete) the key must have another side. If you don't get the other side of the key, there might be khatar, danger there, and we don’t want to fall into that category/territory, because it is `adhaab, the punishment category, to be cut off, to be away from the shaykh.
The best moment and time for the mureed is when the shaykh calls him, “Come, yaa waladee, O my son.” He does not say, “Come, O my enemy!” and some say, “But I’m not an enemy of the shaykh.” That is worse than an enemy, so keep your heart clean. In any case, we have to keep our love and respect to Awliyaullah. [...]
Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (q) told me when I saw him in his room with Grandshaykh's image, “Yaa waladee, I raised you and I taught what Grandshaykh gave me. I have completed for you all what you need for Tariqah and this life, and you practice what I gave you and you will be with the Awliyaullah,” and from Awliyaullah, that is very difficult to explain. “I have fulfilled my mission towards Grandshaykh `AbdAllah al-Fa’iz ad-Daghestani (q). Now I am opening your chest and dressing you as they dressed me, combined (with their baraka), but if you make any mistake you will be asked about it twice.”
Let us be frank and say that we made mistakes, and we don’t want to repeat these mistakes, and we say, “Astaghfirullah.” [Astaghfirullah!] Huwa ‘l-Llahu 'Lladhee laa ilaaha ila Huwa ‘l-Hayyu ‘l-Qayyoom. Every person around the world has been given power from their father and mother to go, and we have been giving power to fathers and mothers to teach the children and show them the way when they grow up, and we help them a lot. The order of Tariqah is the same: they raise us up and up.
About Shaykh Nour Kabbani
And for that reason I would like to say Grandshaykh, may Allah bless his soul, saw his shaykh and I was standing there waiting, and he showed us a miracle by saying, “You are going to have a son among Awliya, and I want you to call him ‘Nour Mohammad’. He knows so much through physical teaching: that is why they ordered him to study medicine, in order for him to know more about the body, mina 'l-hadratayn, from the two sides, physical and spiritual.
Grandshaykh (q) said, “When you get that child, call him ‘Muhammad,’ and he is inheriting from me.” And so I did. Time went by, and the time has come when we have to announce what my shaykh, Shaykh Nazim, qaddasAllahu sirrah, has said.
[Mawlana looks at Dr. Nour Kabbani.] As ordered through your shaykh, with whatever Grandshaykh `AbdAllah ad-Daghestani dressed Mawlana Shaykh Nazim, Shaykh Nazim is dressing you with what he dressed your father in appearance. Tariqah is not to hear from one to one without absorbing what you are saying. As a result, Mawlana was indicating to me that he will have his grandson, Shaykh Nour, to be one of the 313 Awliya. [Takbir! Allahu Akbar!]
Angels are happy about what happens here today! He said, “My khalifah is your son.” It is not (passed) from father to son. I’m very tough on him, but he has achieved what Awliya want him to achieve, he was able to do it. I didn’t see any shaykh except those who have a high level, who keep the daily wazifa. Whatever he receives to recite, he not only recites it but adds on top of it Salaat an-Najaat, all the salawaat, Salat at-Tasaabeeh, and he stays up from before Fajr until Ishraaq. That will carry him to high levels. Sayyidina ash-Shaykh knows where he gives the power. No one has reached that level in that situation.
People will speak, but don’t give an ear if they say this and that, don’t bother with that. Turn your focus and hope towards Awliyaullah, don’t listen to people. So as the khalifah of Mawlana Shaykh that in this time, in this area, he is dressing, and he is doing what he needs to do, it means his du`a is accepted (and) the acceptance of his du`a is accepted!
Anyone who has something wrong with Shaykh Nour, come to him and he will solve the problem. No argument, say he is this. [Mawlana recites names.] These are the khulafah of Sayyidina al-Mahdi and khulafah of Grandshaykhs, and it is they who have taken him as Awliya, not because he prayed more, but because it was written for him on the Lawh al-Mahfuz.They don’t want to open more secrets, although there are so many things about him, but it is better to listen to the suhbat from him.
So (Shaykh Nour) is one of the Awliya who is able to extract the secrets from the Naqshbandi Golden Chain, not through his work, but by carrying. So let us focus on what is good and what is bad. What is good, Grandshaykh said in your life if you have a problem you have one thing that can clean the messes for you that is a situation that gives power up to Hereafter. So all of you are in need to reach this life of Hereafter, and may Allah (swt) accept our baya`, and accept us in the presence of Prophet (s).
We ask a good end and to see Prophet (s) inshaa-Allah, and for all to be happy that we are connected to him. Now we will renew our baya`, and we say that it is not from me, but it is from Allah `Azza wa Jall, so anyone who wants the baraka makes it in such a way to Mawlana Shaykh Nazim and Grandshaykh.
Wa min Allahi 't-tawfeeq, bi hurmati 'l-Fatihah.
Khulafah is not easy, it is a very heavy task, and he is going to be on that way inshaa-Allah. I will leave it now for Dr. Nour, who is going to carry the responsibility in front of Sayyidina al-Mahdi (a) insha'Allah. We will give spiritual support and we hope to be a servant.
Bi hurmati ‘l-habeeb bi hurmati ‘l-Fatihah.
Now, we don’t laugh here. This is what Awliya have ordered, what happened is from Mawlana Shaykh Nazim: to support Sayyidina Mahdi’s (a) work. Sometimes people make mistakes, but if their mistakes are for dunya they will lose, if it is for Akhirah they will succeed. So are you for dunya or Akhirah? [Akhirah.] Let us raise our hands.
