Dastoor yaa Sayiddee, madad yaa Sultan al-Awliya. (Mawlana Shaykh stands.)
Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, `Azeez Allah.
Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Subhaan Allah.
Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Sultaan Allah.
Your blessings, O our Lord, give Your most glorious, most praised, and most majestic blessings for Your most beloved one who was just created for every creation; the real reason for heavenly and majestic demands of the Lord of Heavens, the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s). And we are asking for all holy ones that are belonging to heavenly stations in this life, may Allah grant them much more honor and power. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)
O people, our attenders, as-salaamu `alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh. Mashaa-Allah. First, coming from heavenly levels, praisings and honor on those people who know they are servants and they are humble ones and they know for what they have been created and they are taking much more care for their real missions. The mission of Mankind is only to be servants for their Creator, the Lord of Heavens. Allahu Akbar! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.)
As-salaamu `alaykum, our attenders! O our attenders! Don't leave to be among yourselves spying people, because Shaytan is sending its spies for spying, "To look at what that one is speaking and what kind of wrong things he may say, and we may take that wrong one and make a show in the east and west." And I am saying that One who is making this servant to be here is putting heavenly protection on that one, so that your eyes are not able to see, your ears are not able to hear, or your tongues are not able to speak against heavenly declarations. May Allah Almighty grant us His divinely protection.
We are saying, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. O our Lord! Make us far away from Shaytan and its followers. As long as they are not asking to hear Truth, they are deaf ones. As long as they are not asking to see what is the true position, they are not looking, because they are blind ones. And their tongues can't speak, because they are unable to understand and to prevent real declarations for reaching to Mankind. Therefore, we are saying a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. That is our protection, surrounding us. When we are saying a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem, they can't hear, they can't speak, and they can't understand. And their positions are under the levels of animals. They have eyes but they can't see. They have ears but they can't hear. They have tongues but they are not able to stand up and to be witnesses for Truth. And we are coming and Allah Almighty (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) is asking from His servants to be true ones and be true witnesses for Truth, Eternal Truth! (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)
Yes, we have only been created for seeing Truth, for hearing Truth, for witnessing Truth, and for understanding heavenly Truth. We have been offered what is a heavenly offer for Mankind. And we are saying bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) O our Lord, You are our Lord. Make us to understand, and to hear, and to be witnesses for real Truth. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.) Even animals, O people, all of them are witnessing Truth on their levels. And every atom is also witnessing.
Fa fee kulli shayin aayatun tadoolu annahu waahidun, that is a heavenly declaration... fa fee kulli shayin lahu ayah tadullu annahu waahidun. Saheeh? True? If you are accepting your Prophet (s) and his inheritors, they are not leaving you on mistakes, no. They are correcting you. Therefore, sometimes some inspirations are coming, and when we are saying it in another way. They are making it more clear for us because we are surrendering to them and they are responsible when they are putting such a weak servant for addressing nations. They have responsibility for that weak servant not to make mistakes, and they are correcting until they are understanding. Doesn't matter, you may put milk in a big pot, or in a small pot, or in a glass, or in a cup, doesn't matter. Out-looking (appearance) is not important. What is important is what is really in it, that is important. It is important to make people to understand, to make like this, or make like that.
We are attenders and we are like students in primary school, small ones that the teacher is correcting, and therefore, sometimes we may say something, maybe its out-looking is different but what is contained in it is the same. You may drink water in your hand, you may drink water from a golden cup, you may drink water from an ordinary pot, or you may drink from a silver cup, the out-looking is not important, but what is inside is important.
Therefore, we are correcting, it doesn't matter. I know nothing, but they know and they are observing what we are saying and correcting it until people understand. But if people are attending such a meeting or association, coming and sitting, but renting their understanding somewhere else, to someone... what are they going to understand? Nothing. Therefore, be in your position every time that you have been asked to be in. There are so many instruments here and if those people are not taking care about them, they are not not working. But if they are taking care, the different models are not important, no. It is important to understand.
Therefore, our guides are looking at our positions. If you are coming here wholly, giving in such a way, and as they said, some of them are renting their understanding, because the center of understanding is not in here, (Mawlana points to his head) it is in the heart. That means their hearts are going and coming, making business east and west, then what will it mean if they are sitting here? What can they take? Nothing. If like this (holding a bell upside down) nothing can fill in it, but if coming like this (right side up) then taking. Make it more wide!
Man's physical capacity, his physical being is unimportant. Our physical being is so small, but our capacity for understanding reaches from east to west, from north to south, from Earth to Heavens! Therefore, we have been honored by the Lord of Heavens, Allah Almighty (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) with such a qualification that no other creature has been granted. That is one meaning of Allah's saying:
وَإِذْ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلْمَلاَئِكَةِ إِنِّي جَاعِلٌ فِي الأَرْضِ خَلِيفَةً
wa idh qaala rabbuka li'l-malaa'ikati innee jaailun fil `ardi khalifah,
Behold, thy Lord said to the angels: "I will create a vicegerent on earth." (2:30)
(Mawlana Shaykh sits.) a khalifah, to be deputy. That is the last point a creature may reach. Beyond that no one is able to understand what Man is understanding. Not any other creation is reaching our ability, and our capacity has never been granted to any other creature. Al-`Azhamatu lillah! Allahu Akbar wa lillaahi `l-hamd.
Therefore, O people, try to learn. We must try to learn. But yet we are closed, there is no opening. If an opening comes, countless oceans in countless territories will open, all of them are signaling endless majesty, most high majesty, most high praising, most high mightiness that belongs to the Lord of Mankind, the Lord of all Creation. Our capacity is so big even if we are such small ones. Our capacity is covering the whole universe. If such a universe may be many, millions or trillions, or quadrillions, bigger, bigger, bigger than this universe, and we have such a power to reach to them, to cover them. Allahu Akbar! That is granted to us. Allahu Akbar! Subhaan Allah, Sultaan Allah, Kareem Allah. (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.)
Man is created knowing nothing. When we were born we were knowing nothing. Knowing, but it was not opened. We have been granted such a power for understanding, but if we look at our physical beings, we say it is impossible. Who is the Lord of Heavens? He is that One making the impossible, possible! Allahu Akbar! We have been granted such a power and not only power, we have also been granted authority on power, and we can use that power also.
O People! Hear and try to be under this heavenly appearance, coming here. Try to be with your spirituality. If you are using your physical capacity, you can't reach it. But Allah Almighty is sending His holy ones and the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s) (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.) to make a way or to make ways for Mankind to reach an opening. Who is coming and asking, prophets may open to them. The levels of the prophets, that which they are granting to people are according to the level of the people who are asking. And such realities you can't learn by reading books, no, no. You can reach to those oceans through heavenly ones. The prophets appear as Mankind but their real beings are from Heavens. Try to understand!
O People! They are coming with the keys for everyone's treasures, because everyone who has been granted such a grant from heavenly treasures must have the holy key; not an ordinary key, but a holy key, and the keys are in many different levels. Don't think that one key is opening everything, no. There are countless keys for everything from Divinely Presence Oceans, that will open for deputies, to show them something from the heavenly greatness of the Lord of Heavens. And beyond that, it will stop and there is only one for reaching the Divinely Presence and his position is just 100% different. He is only One. The Oneness of the Lord of all Creation is never accepting two; it is One to one.
May Allah forgive us and grant us something for understanding. And they are making such a speech that perhaps it is difficult to find in books, and every holy book has mentioned this, but to come to it is mushkil, a problem. They are coming up to the entrance and using different keys but not opening it. There are special keys for every heavenly treasure granted to the deputies and they may use it with an angel, not alone. They may use that key with an angel or two or three or seven or 70, and according to their powers comes the power for opening. We know nothing! We know nothing! Heavenly knowledge is never-ending and because the Last Day is approaching, they are granting it now to taste something about Ilaahiyaat, Divinity, and under it are heavenly levels to make them prepared for what they can never imagine. They are thinking that this Creation is such an accident. May Allah forgive us and give us such an understanding that we may reach to the levels of Heavens, that from there we may move, continue, continue, continue. The servant asks, هَلْ مِن مَّزِيدٍ Hal min mazeed? "Is there any more?" (50:30) And angels respond, "Yes, go and taste, go and understand, and go and enjoy!"
May Allah forgive us for the honor of the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.) We are asking for forgiveness and power to our souls for understanding.
If you are not coming here, for what are you making me to speak?
(Mawlana Shaykh prays two raka`ats Salaat ash-Shukr.)
