Deeds of Our Seven Limbs and Organs, Part 2

Ramadan Series 2014, Volume 27

Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani

25 July 2014 Fenton Zawiya, Michigan


Nawaytu 'l-arba`een, nawaytu 'l-`itikaaf, nawaytu 'l-khalwah, nawaytu 'l-`uzlah, nawaytu 'r-riyaada, nawaytu 's-salook, nawayna as-siyaam fee hadha ‘l-yawm min Ramadan.

A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani ‘r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. 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.

As-salaam 'alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh. We are coming, brothers and sisters around the world, those who are listening or watching, everyone here is wishing you a happy, happy Ramadan and inshaa-Allah `Eidun Sa`eed, a happy Eid. From one country to another the day of `Eid changes, and from one country to another the situation of Muslims changes, and from one country to another the culture changes, and from one country to another the understanding changes. But all of them, even though they change the root is one and our roots are Muslim. We are Muslim saying laa ilaaha illa 'Llah Muhammad Rasoolullah. Everyone of us has something in common, as we mentioned previously, this is the continuation of the series on Tasawwuf from the beginning up to what we reached today, nearly 28 lectures, everyone has something in common and Allah has given it to you to keep it and perfect it. It changes from one person to another like different cultures, different traditions, different ways of believing, but the root is one, the trunk is one.

The branches are too many and all the branches have fruit on them, either wild, sour or sweet. Sometimes you have the same fruit on the same tree or same branch but it did not ripen well so you throw it and on the same branch if you grafted it in a good way it gives you good fruit. So we have to graft ourselves before we claim something. All of us are claiming something that the Prophet (s) was afraid for his Ummah. All of us, none of us can say, “No, I am okay.” No. We have that hidden issue that puts us in danger. That is where the Prophet (s) said:

أخوف ما أخاف على أمتي الشرك الخفي

What I fear most for my Ummah is hidden shirk.

If you are arrogant you are making shirk, if you are greedy you are making shirk, if you are angry you are making shirk. All of these bad characters give you a situation that you are into the hidden shirk that Prophet (s) was worried about for the Ummah. Even if you say, “I helped this one,” that is shirk as you cannot say that. Who is The One Who can help, The Creator of Help? Allah (swt). Don’t say, “I gave.” You did not give, Allah gave to you to give.

قُلْ إِنَّمَا أَنَا بَشَرٌ مِّثْلُكُمْ يُوحَى إِلَيَّ

Say, "I am but a man like yourselves, (but) the inspiration has come to me. (Surat al-Kahf, 18:110)

Allah said, “Yaa Muhammad, say to them…” and he (s) said it, he did not hide it. If someone exposes us we try to hide, but Prophet (s) did not do that. When Allah said, “Say that you are only a human beings,” he said it, but if someone says to a king, “Allah created you the same as me,” the king will get upset. The Prophet (s) did not get upset, the Prophet (s) is upset only on one thing: when someone attacks Allah (swt) or curses His Prophet (s) and curses Allah (swt). The Prophet (s) gets upset when he sees you doing something wrong in your prayers, your Islam or your iman. But when it comes to him personally, he doesn’t get upset from people. When they were throwing stones on the Prophet (s) at Taif and wounded his legs and he was bleeding, what did he say?

اللَّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِقَوْمِي فَإِنَّهُمْ لاَ يَعْلَمُونَ

“O Allah, forgive my people, for they do not know.” (Bukhari, Muslim)

“O Allah, guide my people for they do not know, they are not believing, they don’t know that You sent me as a messenger.” It is his personal matter so he does not get angry with people when they harm him, but he prays for them. If people hurt us what do we do? Do we stab them, shoot them? For 4,000 years the maqaam of Sayyidina Yunus (a) stood in Mosul, Iraq, and what did these people do, those who accuse Muslims of being kaafir, takfeeriyeen, what did they do? They blew up that maqaam, shrine, and the whole masjid, yesterday and they were happy, even celebrating, and you see the minaret falling down and the whole place gone! Prophet (s) will be upset, because that’s an Islamic issue.

How to Struggle Against the Limbs

So we said yesterday that we have what in common? The tongue. But some people have long tongues some people have short tongues. Do we have eyes same, nose same, hands same, legs same, feet same, private parts same? Laa hayaa’ fi ’d-deen, “there is no shyness in religion,” so we have to say. So we spoke about the different limbs. Is the ear a limb? It is an organ. The ears are the same, eyes the same, and we said what kind of struggle we are facing with our organs and limbs, because they take us to the wrong direction. So what do we have to do? Struggle, mujaahada, and as we mentioned that mujaahada is of three types:

1. Mujaahadat al-`Adoow, to fight the enemy when they are attacking you, and an enemy can be anything, not just in war.

2. Mujaahadat ash-Shaytan, to fight Shaytan’s gossips and whispers.

3. Mujaahadat an-Nafs, to fight your self, but not kill yourself as we are not yet in that station, but to correct ourselves.

We said the example that we are a human being, in Arabic we say haywaanun naatiq, the animal that can speak, because we also have some similar characteristics of eyes, ears, stomachs and so many things the same, but Allah created us and honored us, He did not honor the animals, but He honored the human beings. So animals that are wild, can you change them from wildness to be domestic? Yes, that is why we see the lion in the circus is being trained not to eat his trainer and he does not even harm the people nearby, because he’s afraid from his trainer. We are wild, we don't want to kill ourselves, but we have to correct ourselves to become domestic, humble, nice and smooth.

So as we mentioned, these seven different organs and limbs can fall into problems and as these organs and limbs do sins, they can be trained to obey. Attending such associations, sitting for dhikrullah, helps that training process, as Allah (swt) said:

أَنَا جَلِيْسُ مَنْ ذَكَرَنِي

I sit with him who remembers Me. (Ahmad, Bayhaqi)

What do you think of the manifestation of Allah's Mercy when Allah is sitting with you when you do dhikrullah as if He is beside you? What do you need better than that? So this dhikrullah will correct you slowly, slowly, slowly to be a better human being. So now to correct these seven different organs and limbs, what must we do?

The Obedience of the Tongue

What is the best for the tongue? Sayyidina `Ali (r) said, zip your tongue, close your mouth, ferme ta bouche, close the mouth, as-sukoot, keep quiet. Idhaa kaana ’l-kalaam min fiddat fa ‘s-sukootu min dhahab, is an Arabic idiom, a saying, “If speaking is from silver then silence is from gold.” What is the difference between silver and gold? Today silver is $19 oz. and gold is $1300 oz. So you like the silver or you like the gold? Keep the gold, that is silence. Allah is offering you the gold by keeping your mouth clean.

I know one lady in Egypt, Shaykh `Ali Gomaa introduced me to her. Anyone who came to ask her for anything, from life and necessities of dunya, she will answer from Holy Qur'an; she gives an ayah to express what they need and people will understand immediately. You can ask Dr. `Ali Gomaa, she never said anything other than Holy Qur'an, even if she wants to speak with her husband and with her children she speaks with Qur’an, not dunya words, she gives one verse and they can understand.

So Ta`at al-Lisaan, the Obedience of the Tongue, is from qiraat al-Qur’an, to read the Holy Qur'an. If you make yourself busy with Holy Qur'an, then Allah (swt) will make your tongue manifest the Holy Qur'an on you. Why they say people who are hufaazh, who memorized the Holy Qur'an? If two people are the same age, even if they are twins or one is older than the other and the younger knows the Holy Qur'an and they both die at same time, which do you bury first? Not the elder; rather, the younger one who memorized the Holy Qur'an. That is afdaliyya, the one preferred, to bury him first. If I die and Shaykh Ihsan dies at the same time (may Allah give you long life), we must bury him first as his beard is longer. Inshaa-Allah all of us will have long life.

So after the Holy Qur’an the best to recite is what? Dhikrullah is a major one, as mentioned in Holy Qur'an and also Holy Qur'an is mentioned as dhikrullah:

إِنَّا نَحْنُ نَزَّلْنَا الذِّكْرَ وَإِنَّا لَهُ لَحَافِظُونَ

Behold! It is We Ourselves Who have bestowed from on high step-by-step this reminder and behold, it is We Who shall truly guard it (from all corruption). (Surat al-Hijr, 15:9)

“We have sent down the dhikr and verily We are protecting it.” Sometimes Salaat al-Jumu`ah is considered dhikrullah, so if you attend Salaat al-Jumu`ah, your tongue becomes Jumu`ah, the best day of the week, and Allah said in Holy Qur’an:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِذَا نُودِي لِلصَّلَاةِ مِن يَوْمِ الْجُمُعَةِ فَاسْعَوْا إِلَى ذِكْرِ اللَّهِ وَذَرُوا الْبَيْعَ ذَلِكُمْ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ

O you who believe! When the call to prayer is sounded on Friday (the Day of Assembly), hasten to the remembrance of God, and leave all worldly commerce: this is for your own good, if you but knew it.

(Surat al-Jumu`ah, 62:9)

In another place it is mentioned as `ilm being dhikrullah, where He says:

فَاسْأَلُواْ أَهْلَ الذِّكْرِ إِن كُنتُمْ لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ

So ask the People of the Message if you do not know. (Surat an-Nahl, 16:43)

“Ask the people of the Holy Qur’an or dhikrullah, if you don't know,” because they know more than you, if you have a problem. Dhikrullah is tasbeeh, takbir, tahmeed, and salaat `alaa an-Nabi (s). So from taa`at al-Lisaan, Obedience of the Tongue, is to recite the Holy Qur'an, keep yourself busy with recitation of Holy Qur'an. If you are not haafizh, no problem, just recite what you know. Three times recitation of, “Qul huwa Allahu Ahad” is equivalent to reciting the entire Holy Qur'an, so recite it! Afdala ‘l-dhikr laa ilaaha illa 'Llah, so recite “laa ilaaha illa 'Llah” and Surat al-Fatihah is Qalb al-Qur’an, the Heart of the Holy Qur'an, so recite Surat al-Fatihah and dhikrullah: tasbeeh, takbir, tahmeed, and salaat `alaa an-Nabi (s).

وَأَمَرُوا بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَنَهَوْا عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ

And enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong. (Surat al-Hajj, 22:41)

“And call for good and prohibit what is bad,” not other people, but yourself. What we usually do is to advise the others and we are not listening to what we are saying, which is hypocrisy. We are not seeing our own defects, we are seeing our brothers’ defects. Why do we want to expose him? Expose yourself if you want to expose someone, don’t backbite!

The Obedience of the Ears

And what about the ears, what did the Prophet (s) say? Allah revealed to him in a Hadith Qudsee, Holy Hadith:

وما يزال عبدي يتقرب إلي بالنوافل حتى أحبه فإذا أحببته كنت سمعه الذي يسمع به وبصره الذي يبصر به ويده التي يبطش بها ورجله التي يمشي بها وإن سألني لأعطينه ولئن استعاذني لأعيذنه وما ترددت عن شيء أنا فاعله ترددي عن نفس المؤمن يكره الموت وأنا أكره مساءته ‏ولا يزال عبدي يتقرب إلي بالنوافل حتى أحبه، فإذا أحببته كنت سمعه الذي يسمع به وبصره الذي يبصر به، ويده التي يبطش بها ورجله التي يمشي بها،

My servant does not cease to approach Me through voluntary worship until I will love him. When I love him, I will become the ears with which he hears, the eyes with which he sees, the hand with which he acts, and the legs with which he walks (and other versions include, “and the tongue with which he speaks.”). (Hadith Qudsi, Bukhari)

“As long as My servant approaches Me through voluntary worship, qiraa’at al-Qur’an--which is tasbeeh, tahmeed, tamjeed, takbeer, salawaat `ala ‘n-Nabi (s), all dhikrullah--as long as he is doing all that, I will love him. When I love him I will be the ears he hears with.” So train your ears to listen; not these dunya ears, but you have to train your ears to sami`na wa at`ana, listen and obey. When you listen you obey, you say, “I obey, yaa Rabbee!” You cannot say sami`naa wa lam nuti`, “We hear and we do not obey.” That is the way of Bani Isra`eel. the way of Ummat an-Nabi (s) is:

وَقَالُواْ سَمِعْنَا وَأَطَعْنَا

And they say, "We hear, and we obey." (Surat al-Baqara, 2:285)

Simaa` al-qur’an, if you don’t know how to read, listen. Today you go on a plane, train, bus, donkey, horse, on a camel and you see people with headphones in their ears. What are they listening too? They are hearing music when they are walking, standing, sitting or even lying down to sleep and all of that is Shaytan playing with them, giving them music. One doctor puts his patients on the bed and plays Holy Qur'an, then he examines them because when they are relaxed, their inside and outside will synchronize. We have tabeeb majaaneen here, doctor of the self, the nafs (a psychologist). Have your patients listen to Holy Qur'an, to qasaa’id, then when you speak to them, especially Muslims, they will improve as that will make them relax. Especially Shaykh Sahib when he recites, he is French and hafizh, he recites well and makes the eyes weep. Don't get upset (Shaykh Sahib). To listen to Holy Qur'an and ahadeeth an-Nabi (s) makes you happy.

Allah Will Resurrect People with Faces of Light

I will mention one Hadith since we came to hear:

عَنْ أَبِي الدَّرْدَاءِ رضي الله عنه قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صلي الله عليه وسلم: لَيَبْعَثَنَّ اللهُ أَقْوَامًا يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ فِي وُجُوهِهِمُ النُّورُ عَلَى مَنَابِرِ اللُّؤْلُؤِ. يَغْبِطُهُمُ النَّاسُ لَيْسُوا بِأَنْبِيَاءَ وَلاَ شُهَدَاءَ. قَالَ: فَجَثِىَ أَعْرَابِيٌّ عَلَى رُكْبَتَيْهِ فَقَالَ: يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ، حِلْهُمْ لَنَا نَعْرِفُهُمْ. قَالَ: هُمُ الْمُتَحَابُّونَ فِي اللهِ مِنْ قَبَائِلَ شَتىَّ وَبِلاَدٍ شَتىَّ. يَجْتَمِعُونَ عَلَى ذِكْرِ اللهِ يَذْكُرُونَهُ

Abi Darda (r) said that Prophet (s) said, “On the Day of Judgment, Allah Almighty will resurrect some people with shining light on their faces. They will be sitting on pulpits made of pearls and the other people will envy them. They will neither be Prophets nor martyrs.” (Hearing this) a Bedouin bent down to his knees saying, “O, Holy Prophet of Allah Almighty! Please describe these people so that we may recognize them.” The Holy Prophet said, “They are the people who, regardless of their connection to different tribes and countries, love each other for the Sake of Allah Almighty and gather together to remember Him.” (Tabarani)

When you read that Hadith of Prophet (s) you will be happy to know how much mercy they are sending to you. The Prophet said, la-yaba`thanna-Llaahu aqwaaman yawma ’l-qiyaamati fee wujoohihim an-noor, “Allah will resurrect groups of people on Judgment Day [with] their faces full of Light, an-Noor al-Muhammadi, an-Noor ar-Rabbani, an-Noor al-Ilaahi, He will dress them from Allah's Beautiful Name an-Noor. He will dress His servants, their faces are Noor, `alaa manaabiri l-loo’loo’, they are on pulpits of pearls. They come on top of high-level pulpits and yaghbituhumu ’n-naas, everyone seeing them loves them, wishes to be with them. Laysoo bi anbiyaa’, wa laa shuhadaa’, they are not prophets and they are not martyrs, qaal, and he stopped. Then, fa-jathiya `araabiyyun `alaa rukbatayhi, fa-qaal, and a Beduoin who was there sitting on his knees facing Prophet (s) said, yaa Rasoolallah sifhum lanaa na`arifhum, “O Prophet (s) of Allah! Describe them to us in order that we know them.” Qaala hum al-mutahaabboon fi ‘Llah, Prophet said, “They are the ones who love each other for Allah's sake.”

They don't fight with each other; if one is upset the others try to calm him and he doesn’t attack the other. If we two were fighting, someone will come and try to calm us and for Allah’s sake we would stop, al-mutahaabboon fi ‘Llah, those who are in love for Allah. Min qabaa’ilin shattaa, from different tribes, different races, but they love each other. They were lovers of each other in dunya.

Look here, pan that camera here. How many races and backgrounds are attending here? They are from all over the world and all of them are mutahaabboon fi ‘Llah they all love Allah and they all love each other for Allah's sake. Wa bilaadin shattaa, and they are from different countries. Yajtami`oonaa `alaa, they gather together on one thing.

So they get all this light and these pulpits of pearls for what? They come together for one thing, for dhikrullah, yadhkaroon Allah, they remember Allah. They come to make dhikr, that is it: no business, no dunya matter, they come only for dhikrullah. So when you read this Hadith you feel happy because you are those people! In every country, every place, every village, every city, people around the world who sit like that are like that and they will continue to be like that and Allah will call them full of Noor, and they are in love with each other for the sake of Allah (swt)!

So that Hadith makes you happy, is it not? So listen to ahadeeth of the Prophet (s) and you will happy. Listen to advices of shuyookh, to their wa`azh, their lectures and advice, listen to what they say as they are more trained and have more experience, they are not young like you. They are in their 70’s, 80’s , 90’s and they have more knowledge and completed more `ibaadah, if we want to say like that.

One time they asked Sayyidina Bayazid al-Bistami (q), “Why do you respect the young people?”

He said, “I respect them because they have less sins than me and I respect the older ones because they have more `ibaadah than me.” He wanted to tell them to respect everyone, young or old. The Prophet (s) respected the young ones. He gave bay`a to them, to al-Hasan (r) and al-Husayn (r), another two, so there were four of them. Listen to their advice. They know how to make you struggle against your ego and they bring you back to be domesticated, with good characters, not wild. They improve you; they don't want to kill your ego, but they want to bring you from sayyi’ to hasan, bad to good, from good to more good, to raise you from one state to another.

The Obedience of The Eyes

We spoke of the disobedience of the eyes before, so what is the obedience of the eyes? First on the top of the list is, an-nazhar ilaa wujooh al-awliya, to look on the faces of Allah's saints. Allah loves His Saints!

من عادا لي وليا فقد آذنته بالحرب

(Allah [swt] said) Whoever comes against My wali, I declare war on him.

(Hadith Qudsi; Bukhari, from Abu Hurayrah)

“Whoever comes against My saint, I declare war on him,” which means Allah loves them! Look at what Allah loves, so first look `an wujooh al-`ulama wa ‘s-saaliheen, on the faces of scholars and pious sincere people, which are Awliyaullah.

أَلا إِنَّ أَوْلِيَاء اللّهِ لاَ خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلاَ هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ

Behold! Verily on the Friends of Allah there is no fear, nor shall they grieve. (Surah Yunus, 10:62)

Then, also when you pray, you pray towards Qiblah, towards the Ka`bah and you are ordered in prayer to keep your eyes on the place of sajda; when you say “Allahu Akbar!” you face the sajda, where you are going to put your head, and you cannot look up because it takes your mind somewhere else, so you look at your sajda. But when you are in Mecca al-Mukarrama and you enter the Haram, your face and eyes must look only on the Ka`bah, only! When you say Allahu akbar, you don't look at the place of sajda, you only face the Ka`bah, because it is Allah's House and you are there, so face it. But when you are far away in your country, you look at the place of sajda. So look at Ka`bah, look at the faces of `ulama, look at the faces of Awliyaullah and say, “SubhaanAllah! Allah (swt) gave them this Light to become Awliyaullah and to become `ulama.”

العلماء ورثة الانبياء

The (genuine) scholars are inheritors of the Prophets.

If you respect prophets, you must respect their inheritors, or else you are not respecting the prophets.

Wa nazhar at-ta’ammuli fee ayaati ’l-kawn, and the contemplative viewing of what Allah has created in this universe. At-ta’ammal al-fikree, that is the contemplation of the mind, not yet the heart: to look at what Allah (swt) has created, to look first at His Creation and reflect on His Greatness. That is why He said:

الَّذِينَ يَذْكُرُونَ اللّهَ قِيَامًا وَقُعُودًا وَعَلَىَ جُنُوبِهِمْ وَيَتَفَكَّرُونَ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ رَبَّنَا مَا خَلَقْتَ هَذا اطِلاً سُبْحَانَكَ فَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ

Those who remember Allah (always, and in prayers) standing, sitting and lying down on their sides, and contemplating the creation of the Heavens and the Earth, (saying), "Our Lord! You have not created (all) this without purpose! Glory to You! Give us salvation from the torment of the Fire.”

(Surat Aali `Imraan, 3:190-191)

“They prepared themselves by dhikrullah and they ponder and reflect on Heaven and Earth after doing dhikrullah,” because as Allah said in Holy Qur’an:

لَخَلْقُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ أَكْبَرُ مِنْ خَلْقِ النَّاسِ وَلَكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ

The creation of the Heavens and Earth is greater than the creation of Mankind, but most of the people do not know. (Surat Ghaafir, 40:57)

“The creation of Heavens and Earth is greater than the creation of human beings, but most human beings know not.” It means it is a fact or else He would not say, ‘many people don’t know’, it means yes, the creation of this unique universe, all that is moving in space at the speed of light, 300 km/sec, moving in a vacuum and until today no one found out where it is going! Since its creation it has been moving, and not one galaxy but six-thousand galaxies with all their stars, this entire universe through which the Prophet (s) penetrated to reach Qaaba Qawsayni aw Adnaa. How did the Prophet (s) go? Nothing ill happened to him, more strength was dressing him.

That whole universe is moving and we are moving with it. Where is it going? Maghrib ash-Shams? No one knows and it is still moving, and we are moving and everything is moving. When you bring a fan and run it at top speed you don’t see the blades as it is moving with speed, but shine a flashlight and you see the blades. So we don't see because these eyes cannot see until we put a flashlight, which is in the hands and the hearts of Awliyaullah, and when they want they press the button and show you where you are in this universe. But they keep it until you are ready, and if you are not ready in dunya at the moment you die, then you will be ready because you are a mu’min and you are a Muslim, you say, “Laa ilaaha illa ’Llah Muhammadun Rasoolullah”, then definitely they complete you there in those final seven breaths coming out from you, “ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha,” and then finished. These seven breaths might expand in time, who knows?

قَالَ الَّذِي عِندَهُ عِلْمٌ مِّنَ الْكِتَابِ أَنَا آتِيكَ بِهِ قَبْلَ أَن يَرْتَدَّ إِلَيْكَ طَرْفُكَ فَلَمَّا رَآهُ مُسْتَقِرًّا عِندَهُ قَالَ هَذَا مِن فَضْلِ رَبِّي لِيَبْلُوَنِي أَأَشْكُرُ أَمْ أَكْفُرُ وَمَن شَكَرَ فَإِنَّمَا يَشْكُرُ لِنَفْسِهِ وَمَن كَفَرَ فَإِنَّ رَبِّي غَنِيٌّ كَرِيمٌ

Answered he who was illumined by Revela­tion, “(No,) as for me, I shall bring it to you before the twinkling of your eye ceases!” And when he saw it truly before him, he exclaimed, “This is (an outcome) of my Sustainer’s bounty to test me as to whether I am grateful or ungrateful! However, he who is grateful (to Allah) is but grateful for his own good and he who is ungrate­ful (should know that) verily, my Sustainer is Self-Sufficient, The Most Generous in Giving!” (Surat an-Naml, 27:40)

One jinn ifreet said to Sulayman (a), ana ateeka bihi qabla an taqooma mim maqaamik, “I will bring the throne of Sheba before you finish your meeting with her,” that means, “I cannot bring it on time.”

Sayyidina Sulayman said, “No, I don’t want that,” as his speed was less.

But the one that has the flashlight, `Asif ibn Barkhiya, his minister and a big wali, said to Sayyidina Sulayman (a), said, “I will get it for you.”

Sulayman was able to get it himself, but Allah wants to show us a miracle that Awliyaullah exist, so even Sayyidina Sulayman (a) is asking, as when Sayyidina Musa (a) went to Sayyidina Khidr (a), the one who had knowledge of the Holy Book at that time, the Tawraat.

`Asif ibn Barkhiya said, “I will get it in a blink of an eye, before you even blink!” He has a flashlight, the key. Look for the key.

We will continue tomorrow, inshaa-Allah.

Wa min Allah at-tawfeeq bi hurmati 'l-Fatiha. Wa ‘s-salaamu `alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh.
