Everything Is Held by Allah Almighty

Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

28 December 2009 Lefke, Cyprus

(Mawlana Shaykh stands). La ilaaha illa-Llah, La ilaaha illa-Llah, La ilaaha illa-Llah Sayyidina wa Nabiyyina, Mawlana Muhammad rasoolullah (s) zidhu ya Rabbee `izzan wa sharafan nooran wa masrooran ridwaanan wa sultaanan faktub haadha shahaadat `indaka ya Rabbana nahnu mu’mineen muslimeen mu`tiyyeen `abideen ija`alna zahideen ya Rabbi ‘l-`alameen. (Mawlana Shaykh sits).

As-salaamu `alaykum, our listeners who are giving a short time for their eternal lives. You are given a short life and a short time, but from your 24 hours you are never taking care to give even a few moments, and you are claiming you are graduated, clever ones. Try to take your heavenly graduation; not to take graduation from this imitated life. They are asking from our grandmaster, who is responsible for everything that is happening on this planet. People may say, how can he be responsible for everything on this planet, it is so big? It is not a difficult matter to give an authority to one atom to guide this whole world. Allah Almighty is saying so many times, perhaps 70 times through the Holy Qur’an, la`llahum yatafakkaroon, la`llakum tatafakkaroon, “In order that they/you may consider.”

If you are trying to think, that thinking is the way to real knowledge. If a person is not thinking, he can’t find a way to true understanding. Enough! It is enough for Allah Almighty to grant very, very, very, very small; smaller than an atom to say to others. Allah Almighty addressing to everything. But what He is addressing to a man is something else and to address any other creation is something else. To command an atom is something else, also. And His holy command is reaching everything. If He is bringing a creature into life in existence, He must say, “Come out! Be an atom.”

إِنَّمَا أَمْرُهُ إِذَا أَرَادَ شَيْئًا أَنْ يَقُولَ لَهُ كُنْ فَيَكُونُ

Innamaa amruhu idhaa araada shayan an yaqoola lahu kun fa yakoon.

Verily, when He intends a thing His command is, ‘Be’ and it is! (36:82)

“You be a planet, you be a galaxy, you be instantly a black hole. You ‘Be’ instantly; before My order finishing, you must be in existence.” (Mawlana stands). He is Allah Almighty, subhaanahu wa ta`ala. Allah, O my Lord, O our Lord.

Man’s honor is with his knowledge and an ignorant one, no value. And the honor of Man is with his knowledge and understanding. You are granted an honor according to your understanding, but when you are making it less, less, less, then you are going to be behind one. Now we are zero behind one, on right hand. Same zero going to take an honor when that zero is standing on the right side of one. When you are putting it in front of one, it is going to lose everything, no value.

Now they are trying to be someone or something, but they are not thinking that to be something also is either yakoon on right hand or yakoon on left hand. Something is granted from the Lord of Heavens, our Creator, on the right hand, given 10, 100, 1000, 10,000, 100,000 millions, billions, trillions, quadrillions. Going on, because that is grant from the Lord of Creatures. Who is asking to be something and is trying to give his highest glorifying, the Lord of Heavens is giving to that one something, something, something. That ‘something’ never belongs to the endless dominions of Allah Almighty. No, that is an appearance, as you are looking through a mirror, you are looking and finding yourself in it, but that is not a real one. No, real one is here, but what you are looking and seeing through a mirror is something you can see only, you can’t touch. That existence of yourself through the mirror is nothing, but your Lord is asking to give to you (an existence) not like that, what you ask to be ‘something.’ You are just granted something that you may look (see) in a mirror and out of the mirror you can’t be anything. May Allah forgives us.

O People! As-salaamu ‘ alaykum. I am a weak servant but what they are giving to me is for understanding, because understanding is not material and if not material, it is going, going, going; no way or no beginning that you may run after it. But that beginning and ending is not like your Lord’s, qidaam wa baqaa, continuous existence from pre-Eternal to Eternal. Therefore, no one is knowing what is pre-Eternal or Eternal.

O People! All of us must try to understand something that is suitable for our mentality and the largeness of our understanding. Therefore, we are saying, as-salaamu `alaykum, O our Lord’s creatures! From one to one there is some connection; no one can be alone. Every atom is going to be in relation or through a connection to what it’s right hand or left hand or front or back or up or down must know. And must know with which seeghah, style of glorifying of Allah, this one, this one, this one, or up and down? There must be harmony through everything. Our minds can’t be able to understand that harmony between two atoms, four atoms, six atoms.

Hasaanati Qudrah, Greatness of the Creator that is only granted for Creation. It is not the glory of dhaat, essence, no. And harmony for an atom must be such a fine arrangement. One atom is just surrounded from six directions. That creation can’t be there if one of those is lost or disappears, then finishing.

إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُمْسِكُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ أَن تَزُولَا

Innallaha yumsiku ‘s-samaawaati wa ‘l-arda an tazoola.

It is Allah Who sustains the heavens and the Earth lest they cease (to function). (35:41)

That is Arabic. I am asking to doctors and Salafi `ulama or Christian learned people, what is your understanding for that holy verse? Give a meaning. How the Lord of Heavens is just holding? How? That one only, the Lord of Heavens, the Creator of Earth and heavens, how is He keeping them? Everything in it, even an atom, or less than an atom, must be held by the Creator’s Mighty Hands. If His Mighty Hands not keeping, just running away from existence to non-existence, finished. Therefore, everything, an atom or less than an atom, must be kept in six directions. It must be protected and kept in existence by the mighty power of the Creator.

O `ulama! Hear and try to understand. If Allah Almighty is not keeping every creature in existence, nothing is going to be in existence. His heavenly Power Oceans must catch everything in existence, from six directions, to be in existence or seen in existence. Therefore, the meaning of la ilaaha illa-Llah; those people asking to run into Unknown Oceans of divine knowledge are saying that if Allah Almighty is not keeping everything in its situation, just going to melt, or become ‘unseen,’ or reach endless Power Oceans and finished. When Allah (swt) is asking something to come in appearance, saying, “Come,” and everything is appearing!

O People! As- salaamu ’ alaykum. We are asking salaamat. Safety or good understanding about yourself, everything around yourself and everything around this planet.

وَمَا قَدَرُوا اللَّهَ حَقَّ قَدْرِهِ

Wamaa qadarullaha haqqa qadrih.

No just estimate have they made of Allah, such as is due to Him. (39:67)

No one is knowing. Therefore, Allah Almighty is ordering His Last, most-honored Messenger to ask from Him only:

وَقُل رَّبِّ زِدْنِي عِلْمًا

wa qul rabbee zidni `ilma

And say, “O my Lord, increase me in knowledge.” (20:114)

Where are our Muslims’ ways, where they are going, what Allah Almighty is saying to His most glorified servant, “O My most glorified servant, don’t ask from Me anything except to give to you more knowledge.” That knowledge is only for Creation. From Creation you may reach a level of knowing Allah Almighty’s existence!

There are so many knowledges now. Don’t ask, this for what or that for what. Every branch of heavenly knowledge must take you to the existence of the Lord of Heavens. You are teaching your students and every knowledge is taking you to know the Absolute Existence of the Lord of Creation. Are you teaching? No, you are just teaching, rawaa Anas ibnu Maalik (r), rawaa Muadh ibn Jabal (r), rawaa Abu Hurayrah (r), but what is in it? You know? For that knowledge they are speaking and asking to teach something. I am not haafizh of whole hadeeth as-shareef. I know ten or perhaps twenty declarations of Rasulullah (s), but everything that I am knowing from the Seal of Prophets (s) is such an endless ocean. And endless oceans of learning or knowledge are taking you to your Lord’s Divine Existence, muwajjahah. Taking you from you to Him. “Taking you,” means you are going to be nothing. Then, when you are going to be nothing, just appearing the signs of existence of your Lord, Allah Almighty.

If your knowledge is not taking you to a level, then you can’t be able to understand anything from your Creator. That is also bahrun `ameeq, deepless ocean. Therefore, every atom or less than atom is leading you to the existence of the Creator of Creation, of creatures. You can’t say, “I learned this or I learned that.” But you must follow that way that is taking servants to their Lord’s Divine Presence. Allah Allah.

O People! We are saying, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani ‘r-rajeem. Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmaani ‘r-Raheem. O our Lord, protect us from Shaytan and his assistants, because they are making for our understanding to be upset or never leaving for anyone a good or perfect understanding. First for all, to know Allah (swt) is ma`rifatullah. You have been ordered to know about your Creator. Perhaps we are going to a level and saying, “It is enough for me.” Behind every horizon is appearing another one. Therefore endless levels of ma`rifatullah, to know our Lord’s Divinely Being, perhaps up to Eternal never going to end.

Therefore, it is so strange that you are looking and seeing and learning something else that never passed before, or never coming to you that answer. Every time, every moment, waridaat, inspirations every moment, never-ending heavenly inspirations; always you can find from heavenly inspirations and that is giving us a pleasure. Every time inspirations are opening and that person is looking and finding such a beauty and refreshment; a sweetness is coming that you never ask to leave and go back, but are always running after that inspiration to find much more happiness and refreshment and sweetness through yourself and to feel an honor that you can’t be able to think on it.

Therefore, all prophets were ordering people, “O People! try to be more understanding ones from heavenly positions and there will be more pleasure for you, forever. You are not going to be fed up. In every moment and every second you can find a new view and inspirations and knowledge that never passed before.”

O People! We must try to find more and more. Therefore we have been ordered to follow saahibu ‘l-`ilm, who is knowing from knowledge about this life or next life. It gives everything to you; a new taste, a sweetness, a new glorifying and new mighty powers that belong to creatures. Not saying power for Allah (swt), Allah has no need, but that power through you is going to be only for you and for everyone on that same level.

That is why Allah Almighty ordering to his most beloved servant, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana stands.) Yaa Rabb, wa qul rabbi zidnee` ilma. Zidnee yaa Rabb, zidna yaa Rabb. That knowledge cleans our physical beings, cleans our mentalities, cleans our knowledge, giving us lights. Lightening appearing through your real beings, enlightened like sun, like moon and like stars. Try to reach like heavenly moons, suns and stars; that gives to you enjoyment here and Hereafter. May Allah forgive us.

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

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Kareem Allah

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Subhan Allah

May Allah forgive us for the honor of the most honored one in His Divinely Presence, Sayyidina Muhammad (s). (Mawlana stands.)

O People! Before going to be repented, try at least to hear such speeches and hear something from such extraordinary Knowledge Oceans, that gives you so much honor and enlightening, inshaAllah. Shaykh Hisham Effendi is jewel; he knows such things and mostly when he is sleeping and speaking, and sleeping, dreaming. (Sweets) “I like to eat sweets, or sleep?” Yes sir, yes sir, yes sir.

(Shaykh Hisham: khalas?)

Never ending, when you come to a feast, not able to eat everything. What is granted for you from the Divine Presence, you must take it and you must understand it. Alive people, they may eat and drink, but dead people, they are never asking to eat or to drink. O our Lord, don’t make us to be dead ones, give us power from divine real life, to be forever in your Divine Presence, here and Hereafter!

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

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Kareem Allah

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Subhan Allah

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Sultan Allah jalla jalaaluhu

Yaa Rabbee, yaa Rabbee akrimna, yaa Rabbee maa akramta`ibaadika ’s-saliheen, don’t make our level lowest level of donkeys!
