Being a Good One Is Not Easy

Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani

20 February 2020 CSCA, Feltham

As-salaamu `alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh.

Alhamdulillahi Rabbi 'l-`Alameen, wa ’s-salaatu wa ’s-salaamu `alaa ashrafi 'l-mursaleena Sayyidina wa Nabiyyina Muhammadin wa `alaa aalihi wa sahbihi ajma`een.

We notice the barakah of Prophet (s). My wife made fourteen Khatm of Qur'an, all her du`a for my voice to come back. (She was) told to recite seven Fatihah for my voice to come back and that's what happened. This is for istiraahat (relaxation).

Something for real happened to me in Madinah.

Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem.

Subhaan-Allah! Alladhee laa yakoon Musliman huwa fil-akhirati muhrim `inda ashaab al-ma`rifah wa `inda as-haab as-saaliheen.

Who is not Muslim, Akhirah will not benefit him. He will be prevented from the companionship of pious ones.

And how to be a good one? It's not easy to be good ones. All of us here have done some sins and we all know ourselves, and to avoid that, Allah said in Qur'an:

كلمتان خفيفتان على اللسان ثقيلتان فى الميزان حبيبتان إلى الرحمن سبحان الله و بحمده سبحان الله العظيم

There are two words that are very easy to say, yet very heavy on the Scale, most beloved to The Merciful, “SubhaanAllah wa bihamdihi subhaanAllahi ’l-`Azheem.” (Bukhari and Muslim)

Two words are very light on the tongue and heavy on the Scale. Because everyone can do that, it's easy: Allah gave us something easy. These two words, Awliya and angels are running after these two words.

You can see when someone commits sin and he wants to perform tawbah, where does he go to make tawbah: to his feet, his mind, or something spiritual? So if we read "Subhaan-Allah wa bi-hamdi subhaan-allah al-`azheem wa astaghfirullah" every day, we will exit from the Fire. And they put the sign there, "Fire Exit", and we are saying that, but we have to add something else: Salaat `alaa 'n-Nabi.

We are building a cemetery, the first Muslim organic one in Michigan. I was giving da`wah, going one to another place and they allowed me because it is from our people, and they said you can't pray because it is not clean, so first fix it. I said no, unless it's an Arab one I will pray here. Looking down from the small plane, the cemetery is in the shape of Na`lain Sharif, which angels, mu’min, saaliheen all run after, and it is a chance for us to see pious people and to see Prophet (s). Don't ask why, it's because Allah wants that!

How I can see that? I called other Muslims [to look] and they saw it was Na`lain Sharif. Prophet (s) is giving them an example that Allah (swt) can do anything. It is in His Hand, we cannot interfere; we can interfere in this case, but it is not enough. So they took the precise measurement of Prophet's foot, and the one making blueprints was surprised (about the cemetery shape). This shows the barakah of Prophet (s).

Anyone who asks forgiveness through Holy Qur’an and Prophet (s) and the whole of religion, their forgiveness will be accepted and they will enter Paradise!

In Madina al-Munawwarah, we saw the Holy Hair of Prophet (s). Our hotel room became a dargah until the last day, and each day hundreds of people came. They say that Noor is coming from Madinah, although no one can see from where, but it comes from the bottom of the Earth to the...where Prophet (s) indicated for us to go. So we went and took pictures, which we have. Prophet (s) is sending for a certain issue.

There was a discussion about a Holy Hair arriving to the hotel. It is a hair that is two imeters long. They gave us half and kept half for them. Some people who are pious arranged that. So Prophet (s) showed us a miracle. They are growing it. What happened was, we heard some people outside talking, because this Holy Hair was here for you.

In America, people pass by the cemetery, which is not finished yet, but will soon be finished saying, “What a nice place. Can we have a place in it? It's organic.” They understand organic, but they don't understand Akhirah.

Something like that [miracle] builds up your belief and it benefits you and it benefits us.

Wa min Allahi-Tawfeeq, bi hurmati 'l-Fatihah.

As-salam alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

Shaykh Soihibou Mahmoudou:

On the last day, Mawlana mentioned that he would like a sign that the visit to Madina had been accepted, that he would like a Holy Hair of the Prophet (s). One of the guests phoned a friend of his to see if he could get one, but that person didn’t have one. While they were still discussing this on the phone, there was some commotion outside the room and then two people entered. They had seen a vision of the Prophet (s), who had told them to bring Mawlana one of his Holy Hairs. They arrived within minutes of Mawlana mentioning that he would like to have one. Mawlana said this was a miracle and a sign that the Prophet (s) had accepted the visit. The Prophet (s) did not want us to leave Madinatu 'l-Munawwarah empty-handed, so we received the gift of al-Lahyat as-sa`adat, the happy blessed Holy Hair of the Prophet (s).
