Islam Is Not Rooted within Four Walls!

Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

14 June 2010 Lefke, Cyprus

Yaa Rabbee! Dastoor yaa Sayyidee, madad. (Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, `AzeezAllah.

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, SubhaanAllah.

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, SultaanAllah.

Ash-hadu an laa ilaaha illa-Llah wahdahu laa shareeka lah wa ash-hadu anna sayyidina wa mawlana Muhammadan`abduhu wa habeebuhu wa rasooluh. Zidhu yaa Rabbee `izzan wa sharafa nooran wa suroora min al-azali ila 'l-abad. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

We are saying, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem. All thanks to our Creator, the Lord of Creation, that He granted us to say, Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem. (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.) The biggest grant from the Lord of Heavens to His servants is to grant them to say, Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem! That honor is more than enough for all Mankind!

They are saying, As-salaamu `alaykum yaa `ibaadullah as-saaliheen, as-salaam `alayna min `ibaadullah as-saaliheen! We are asking from our Lord, from His endless grants, to make us happy servants. Allah Almighty is asking His servants (Mawlana Shaykh stands), "O My servants, be happy, be happy with Me. (Mawlana Shaykh sits) I am your Lord. Follow My most beloved, most praised, most glorified, and most majestic deputy. Be happy with him that he may grant to you everything on behalf of Me, from My endless treasures from pre-Eternal up to Eternal. My grants are reaching to all Creation through that selected one in My Divinely Presence, from pre-Eternal up to Eternal." Countless thanks to our most beloved Prophet (s), that r through his generosity we are reaching everything here and Hereafter!

O our attenders! As-salaamu `alaykum. Yes, be attenders from one of the attenders. Don't lose the chance that you have been granted, being in existence. Be thankful ones every time, every moment, and every second. Be grateful to your Lord. Yes, the Lord of Heavens is asking you to be His chosen creatures honored to be deputies on Earth.

O Salafi `ulamas! Wahabi people are never understanding; leave them. They are blocked in four walls. They know only how to say, "Mushrik, haraam, bida`, kufr." They imprison themselves in those four walls and understanding is taken away from them. They never learn or they never understand except to say haraam (forbidden), shirk (polytheism), kufr (unbelief), bida` (harmful innovation). With anything else, there is no way for Mankind! I am not addressing them they are not qaabil-e-khitaab, "worthy to be addressed." You may speak to a cat, but it is never understanding. And between the Arabs, that is a group of people who have been locked between four walls; they are never understanding, and there is no opening for them, so we are speaking to understanding ones. I am not directing my words to those people who are not understanding. The Seal of Prophets (s) was saying, kallimu 'n-naasa `ala qadra `uqoolihim, “You must address people according to their understanding level.”

Why are you wasting your effort for a small one, to make him understand mathematics? It is impossible, because they cannot understand what mathematics is: every knowledge is built on the highest degree of mathematics. Without it, no knowledge can have a base. This huge world is based on mathematics. This huge solar system, our galaxy, is a small one, but it is also a very small point, because the universe and people are asking to reach the limits of the universe; they are trying, but through their knowledge they are not going to be able to reach the ends of it. But advanced mathematics is taking people from being nothing, and giving power and making their understanding bigger, bigger, bigger. High mathematics. And only a handful of people may reach that understanding of the huge show in space. And high mathematics may take the smallest-minded ones to the limits of this universe, what they describe as, "Reaching the limits of this universe."

What do you think, O learned people, scholars? Do you think that there is only one universe? But high mathematics may take them to a horizon about which we may say, “Now, it is the last limit of this universe.” And in this universe it is impossible to know by thinking, but you may use high mathematics to make a way beyond this universe also. But high mathematics are also going to stop in one limit and he is saying, "I am surrendering. I am surrendering. I am unable to move even one millimeter beyond this. I am finishing." That is the authority granted to Mankind through knowledge of mathematics. They can't imagine or know, but mathematics may show them something.

And now, therefore, the Seal of Prophets (s) was saying, kallimu 'n-nasa ala qadra `uqulihim, “You may say to people according to their capacities." But the knowledge granted to the Seal of Prophets (s), no other prophet can reach or understand even `Alam al-Malakoot, not even people of heavenly levels coming to touch divine levels, because divine realities are stopping. Therefore, Archangel Gabriel stopped when he reached the limit of understanding, and Prophet (s) said to him, “Come with me, O Gabriel.”

And he said, “That is the last of my limits. If I am forcing myself to advance up to this limit even less than a millimeter, a million times I am going to be burned and I am not going to return once again.” That is `azhamatullah, the Greatness of Allah Almighty!

Now because people are so proud with their knowledge, they are taking advantage to address all authorities of knowledge, and they are so proud! Therefore, we are going to speak to them with such a language that they will raise their hands in the air and say, "We surrender to the Lord of Heavens, the Lord of Creation." Why are we saying this? Yes, they are speaking according to our capacity because the holy order of the Seal of Prophets (s) is saying, “Speak to people according to their level, don't go up, they can't carry.”

Look around on this planet; it is going to be nothing beside the bigness and huge creations around our planet. We are going to say, "We have surrendered to Who can bring these countless universes. Who is bringing, we are surrendering and making sajdah, bowing to Him!" (Mawlana Shaykh bows in ruku`.)

They are making me speak to people. Now so many things can be said to people, but mostly for such a subject, people are really ignorant ones, not understanding. And if a person has no understanding and makes a limit for himself that, "I have just reached the end of knowledge," or saying that, "I just understand the last limit of this universe," they are falling down, and are never understanding. Beyond that, everyone's understanding is becoming different, different, different. Subhanallahi 'l-`Aliyyu 'l-`Azheem, every knowledge is taking people through Creation and every Creation is taking people to their Creator! Every knowledge must take people to their Creator! If there is no Creator, there is no mathematics, no physics, no science, no botany, no life's realities, and then Man's real being can't be known.

So many subjects, countless. But Wahabi people are imprisoning themselves in four walls: shirk, kufr, bida` and haraam, understanding on this small area alone. Therefore, leave them! Don't waste time with them. If a donkey may understand, they may understand. Perhaps a donkey may understand, but they are going to be a`need, stubborn ones. Donkeys are accepting, but Wahabis are stubborn people, not accepting. Leave them! qaabil-e-khitaab deyil, "not receiving or accepting." And thanks to the Lord, they only remain as a handful of people, no more. But sometimes they are looking and saying, "These people never know except to accuse people, 'You are kaafir, you are making bida`, you are mushrik, and you are making haraam!'" No way! What is that?

What do you think? Why was the Seal of Prophets (s) working for 23 years if it was a summary of deen al-Haqq that Allah Almighty was sending, if it was only four points, putting people in a square-walled building. Why was the Prophet (s) coming for 23 years and teaching, for what? Therefore, leave them there with their limits of understanding! They may shout and accuse people of so many things; don't listen! You cannot speak to them to make them understand something, so leave them! May Allah forgive us and we are asking for them also to find a real way for realities, to know everything in this life that is guiding all of them them to the Creator of this world, these affairs, and what is happening. Leave them there; don't waste time with them.

You follow the ways of Sultan al-Anbiya, King of all Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.) Therefore, he was saying, نكلم الناس على قدر عقولهم nukallimu 'n-naasa ala qadra `uqulihim. "We speak to people according to the level of their capacities." Don't waste time. Therefore, we are only speaking to perhaps a handful of people, and it is enough. To find a handful people for understanding is enough, and leave the others! They have levels according to their understanding and they will continue on their ways here and Hereafter, they are never getting out. They are imprisoned people in themselves. They are imprisoning themselves by themselves, and Man is in need to open! All prophets came for the opening of people. But if they are going to be like Bani Isra`eel `ulamas, saying, وَقَالُواْ قُلُوبُنَا غُلْفٌ wa qaaloo quloobuna ghulf, “Our hearts are blocked,” (2:88) if they are accepting this, it means don't waste your time. If you are finding an open heart, get in, but if they are closing themselves then why waste time, leave them! They have وَلِكُلٍّ دَرَجَاتٌ wa li kullin darajaat, and to every one are levels (6:132) and that means wa li kullin darakaat also. Fee darajaat means to take people up to heavenly, enlightened worlds and universes, and others to darakaat, dark worlds. May Allah forgive us.

O People! So many things to speak about, endless, countless, but they are granting to our listeners to open something of a new understanding, to save them from dark worlds, to take them to enlightened worlds. And that is the mission of all prophets, because they were in dark worlds and Allah Almighty was sending His selected ones for taking people from darkness to enlightened worlds. If they are saying, “We are not accepting the enlightened worlds, we are happy in our dark universes, we are happy,” leave them. May Allah forgive us. You may say a hundred years, a thousand years, one million years, one billion years, for the greatness of the Lord, our Creator is never-ending!

May Allah grant us for the honor of the Seal of Prophets (s) that is bringing us lights from the heavens to make our darkness enlightened. Thanks to Allah Almighty for His endless grants.
