Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani: Surat al-Fatiha

A`udhoo billahi mina 'sh-shaytani 'r-rajeem

Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem

aqoolu qawlee hadha wa astaghfirullah lee wa lakum wa li saair al-mustaghfireen fa ya fawzan lil-musaghfireen iastaghfirullah

Dunya is like one drop in the sea, how many have built great structures and filled great storehouses but they left everything behind.

So if Allah gives, you take; and if Allah does not give, you keep quiet because all belongs to Allah swt.

And we are also with those whom Allah created of Awliya inshaAllah.

Habbatu simsim, a sesame seed is bigger than the whole earth, because we are not knowing for ourselves where it is beginning and where it is ending.

What we know is “how much money do I have” and “how much do you have of money, is the money enough or not enough?” Always this comes to the mind because they want to be like others.

Awliyaullah, how did they become Awliyaullah? When they throw everything [away], and left dunya and went into Akhira so Allah gave them `amal al-Awliya and He gave them also al-mahabba, love. So it means the love is stronger than collecting money. Keep as much as you can.

Al-Awliya ramzun lil akhta’ wa ’l-asfiya ramzun li ’l-mahabba.

Awliya are the sign for [carrying others’] mistakes and the Asfiya’ [Pure Ones] are the sign of love; and we are standing at their door waiting, carrying our load and coming. When you carry your load and come it means that you are going to be at the door of Awliyaullah.

Awliyaullah are opening the gates wide and we come and close them.

They compete and fight who is going to be president and who is going to be an imitation president.

We ask that Allah bring us to His Path with through His Holy Prophet Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.

Allah gave us a responsibility to do. He gave us power that if we are on the right track we will get part after part of that track.

What did Prophet ﷺ give to Awliyaullah through [permission of] Allah? He gave them the light of the sun. If the sun goes out there will be complete darkness in creation.

Mawlana is warning and Awliyaullah are warning that the time has come near for the appearance of the Mahdi (as).

Allah has given him the power to control the sun.

وَالشَّمْسِ وَضُحَاهَا {*} وَالْقَمَرِ إِذَا تَلَاهَا {*} وَالنَّهَارِ إِذَا جَلَّاهَا {*} وَاللَّيْلِ إِذَا يَغْشَاهَا {*} وَالسَّمَاء وَمَا بَنَاهَا {*} وَالْأَرْضِ وَمَا طَحَاهَا {*} وَنَفْسٍ وَمَا سَوَّاهَا {*} فَأَلْهَمَهَا فُجُورَهَا وَتَقْوَاهَا {*} قَدْ أَفْلَحَ مَن زَكَّاهَا وَقَدْ خَابَ مَن دَسَّاهَا

By the Sun and its morning brightness; By the Moon when she follows it; By the Day as it reveals it; By the Night as it conceals it; By the Firmament and Him Who built it; By the Earth and Him Who stretched it forth: By the Soul, and Him Who perfected it; And inspired it its rebellion and its wariness;

Allah has given Mahdi (as) the power of the light of the sun in order to facilitate things for the Ummah. Therefore we must respect the gift that Allah gave us.

The Ummah takes its power from the Awliyaullah. So if you entered into ijtihad – effort – you will find the dunya in front of you, waiting for you.

Allah gave us an Ummah of which the beginning is countless and the ending also has no limit.

As for the light of the sun, Allah gave it to Mahdi (as) to come out with it into public knowledge. Don't say from where did these words come?

When Allah gives He is the All-Giving, He Gives without limit and He cannot be asked [why] so we are under His protection and accepting and received and waiting.

He has given us a sun whose power is reaching the earth and this is the minimum of its power.

And the Awliyaullah have familiarity with that sun and they are receiving the gift of Allah swt and granting it to the Ummah and to us.

The minimum power of the sun is 50,000,000 watts per square meter.

It is a wonder that this dunya we are running after it, when in fact it is running to us.

We have heard news of certain groups – friendly Muslim groups -- who are dividing here and there, the whole earth, as to who will have what. Each one of them has plunged his hand in murky waters. So I am warning them; with the appearance of Mahdi (as), no one can violate the Religion and he will let no one follow their caprice. All must follow al-Mahdi's (as) way and desire.

We are warning them very strictly as they are now walking on a path contravening the Shari`a. The Shari`a is the clothes [that they wear] whereas the reality is the person [under the clothes].

I warn them severely to stop their fitna, and I will not name names but the names exist and they are known.

Tariqa is the universe and Haqiqat is true knowledge.

With Haqiqat we learn or we become ulama of the status of what Allah allotted us according to the Shari`a. Do not go against the Shari`a. It is well-known and well defined.

A day will come when regrets are useless.

Those individuals are part of the Tariqah and they are destroying the Tariqah from within. Some money came to them and they started thinking that no one would deter them and that they are able to take the difficult path. So do not keep company with them, because they have brought new things into Tariqa practice.

This Tariqa is the path of Awliya, the path of Shari`a, the path of the Prophet ﷺ. Any other path is something (where your act is) subject to (what) sacred law decides. Shari`a is Tariqa, and Tariqa is Shari`a. They are one and the same.

مَرَجَ الْبَحْرَيْنِ يَلْتَقِيَانِ بَيْنَهُمَا {*} بَرْزَخٌ لَّا يَبْغِيَانِ {*} فَبِأَيِّ آلَاء رَبِّكُمَا تُكَذِّبَانِ {*}

He has let loose the Two Seas that meet and between the Two there is an inter-space that each one does not cross over. So which one of the favors of Your Lord do you deny? (Surat al-Rahman, 55:19-21)

Ash-Shari`a is a station for Awliya in this world, maraja al-bahrayni yaltaqiyaan.

Allah swt mixed them and then you have a sift--ladies in the kitchen and men in the kitchen they clean the food and they sift it to get the best of it.

Awliyaullah have a Shari`a sifter that they use, just as people in kitchen prepare good food and sift it, the Awliyaullah do that.

Their sifter is not like our sifter. Our sifter you can smell;

But, because they try to test the strength (of others) and make up tests, Allah `azza wa jall puts them into confusion. They mix up matters and they stand against Awliya. They think they have become Knowers of Allah. This is nasiha (pure honesty) for them: they are not Knowers and they are not anything at all. They are destroying the Tariqa and dividing the groups. Since last month such squabbles have taken place in our Tariqa and we have become divided against one another. However such will be a calamity on them.

Many of them try to be accepted by all parties but they cannot; because such a one has destroyed all the paths and has not left any trace of Tariqa on the road he has taken. You will find so many violations he has committed! And this will not be disregarded nor will it be accepted. For Allah `azza wa jall has never kept hidden from anyone the right path.

He has given us the path of the Prophet ﷺ and the Ahl al-Bayt. And He said, "Do good deeds, for Allah shall see your deeds, and so will His Messenger, and the believers" (al-Tawba 9:105). And He also said, "He let loose the two seas that meet" (al-Rahman 55:19), the sea of Shari`a and the sea of Tariqa. That is not how many of the ulama explain this verse; however, in the Naqshbandiyya, namely, in your Tariqa, it [=that verse] is the "spring-meadow of horses" (marbaa al-khayl), and in the understanding of Arabs, horsemanship represents utmost power.

O my brother, you know who I am and I know who you are.

We are on the edge of the road, either we end ourselves by falling into a deep ditch or we stay in the company of the Holy Prophet ﷺ and between the Anbiya and the Awliyaullah and it is up to you, so choose.

But I say that it seems you awoke from sleep to some crime movie of the type that are harmful to children and family. You chanced on that. But now come and remedy the situation. Extract yourselves from that confusion. We will not accept your khilafa (successorship) unless you follow the Path of Truth and Right.

You have all caused divisions when in fact you should all repair and fill the gaps.

And who does not mend their state, they will fall into the trap of shaytan.

يَسْأَلُونَكَ عَنِ السَّاعَةِ أَيَّانَ مُرْسَاهَا قُلْ إِنَّمَا عِلْمُهَا عِندَ رَبِّي

They ask you [O Prophet] about the Last Hour: "When will it come to pass?" Say: "Verily, knowledge thereof rests with my Sustainer alone. (Surat al-`Araf, 7:187)

The Hour is ticking. The Hour is waiting. It is waiting for your coming out from the area of Satan to the area of the All-Merciful. If you do all do not come out, then Allah `azza wa jall repudiates you, the Prophet ﷺ repudiates you, and the Awliya repudiate you. YES, BY ALLAH ALMIGHTY.

Before the Dhikr or after they make anasheed (singing), yes or no? Yes. Tariqa is not anasheed.

Fifteen years ago I was asked to do a program for a royal family, so I organized something and this created good feelings and friendship and when we parted ways there was love. And this is not easy to achieve to bring a member of a royal family to come so near and to have good relations.

Such events occurred where love resulted and friendship where no one expected them, and that is what I have been ordered to do and this is what happened with Prince Charles.

And we made a program and in that program were some anasheed. After the program I found out that Prince Charles loved the anasheed.

The anasheed was extremely beautiful in praise on the Prophet ﷺ. And it was a well-received celebration from their part and from our part.

This is the way and the path of Tariqa; to do something that others might not understand or accomplish except by heavily researching it, but you make it easy so they don't have to do the usual thing of study, research and spend great effort in order to reach that excellent result.

There will come a time very shortly that the ones who think that I am not present in the best physical shape and aware, will be shown wrong.

This is my being present, with the Awliya, with the Anbiya, with knowledge of Allah swt, with the rulers, with the powerful ones, with whichever man or woman have served this Ummah, all of whom have entrusted me and deputized me to represent and teach the reality of the coming of Mahdi (as).

They have given me a title between the Awliya: MADAD AL-HAQQ, the Help of Allah and HUJJATULLAH AL-MUKHLIS, the Strong Proof, the Sincere and Truthful One.

I hope the other party will realize and understand what they are doing.

Madad al-Haqq Hujjatullahi 'l-Mukhlis.

These are some of the things that happened with me and I saw those things with my very eyes.

Mawlana Shaykh (qs) granted me those things, from these secrets in this Umma, there are five Aqtaab: Qutb, Qutb al-Bilaad, Qutb al-Irshad, Qutb al-Mutassarif [and Qutb al-Aqtab], they have dressed us with those realities and have ordered us to come out in the open about them.

If there is a king who is strong and who keeps the Shari`a and does not breach it and does not transgress against it, they place him in a prestigious position, and he goes into some of the deeper meanings of reality. Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (qaddasa Allah sirrah) referred to him before he moved from this dunya. He alluded to this topic, so may they be blessed with success, whoever was present at the time. He gave me baya` with al-Mahdi (`alayhi al-salam).

That [knowledge] is with you now. I ask Allah to forgive you and ourselves all our sins.

Any person who wants to talk to you about Tariqa and Haqiqah you may say “go and ask Shaykh Hisham.”

مَرَجَ الْبَحْرَيْنِ يَلْتَقِيَانِ بَيْنَهُمَا {*} بَرْزَخٌ لَّا يَبْغِيَانِ {*} فَبِأَيِّ آلَاء رَبِّكُمَا تُكَذِّبَانِ {*}

He has let loose the Two Seas that meet and between the Two there is an inter-space that each one does not cross over. So which one of the favors of Your Lord do you deny? (Surat al-Rahman, 55:19-21)

That is meaning of Tariqa and Haqiqah.

There is the real Tariqa and there is the real Shari`a.

I did not want to keep you long but they have ordered us to speak on al-Mahdi (as) and in recent times they have begun to fight against Mahdi (as) and to try to find a way to achieve their goals but they could not.

Alhamdulillah wa ’sh-shukru lillah...

This is for us and for you, from the subject my master inspired me to speak about, otherwise I would never have spoken about it.

We love you, O Sayyidina Mahdi, don’t keep us not to see you but enter us in to your presence and allow us to see the Holy Prophet ﷺ.

The first baya` that Mawlana al-Shaykh gave me was the baya` in Jabal Uhud at a time when no baya` was being given.

Upon the order of all the Prophets Mawlana Shaykh – may Allah (swt) bless him and his family and Mahdi (as) -- told me to stretch out my hand at Jabal Uhud and he put his hand and my hand on top of a rock; and he said, stretch your hand, my son, and put it here, which I did, and he recited the Surah of Baya` [Surat al-Fath, 48:10] and he gave me what he called a real baya` (bay`a haqiqiyya) at that time, and that baya` is not given to anyone at all. And its significance was that he raised us in the decision [made at that time], where Mawlana al-Shaykh was the last one in that group of the Prophets and Awliya, and he gave me to be a sincere slave to Allah, purely dedicated, and so it was.

And Allah is the Grantor of success, and Allah is Guardian over everything, and Allah--He is the Almighty, and the Prophet ﷺ is the greatest of masters. Wassalamu alaykum warahmatullah wabarakatuh. And there is more to say. Perhaps one day, little by little we will explain it.
