The Power of Nisf Sha`ban

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

15 July 2011 Lefke, Cyprus

Suhbah after Jumu`ah

A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, wa lillahi ‘l hamd! Yaa Rabbee, yaa Allah! zidhu yaa Rabbee! A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. (Mawlana Shaykh sits)

Madad, yaa Sultaan al-Awliya. Madad yaa RijalAllah. Yaa Rabbana w`afuw `anna w ’aghfir lanaa w ’arhamna w ’ansurna `ala ’l-qawmi’l-kaafireen, wa azhar Sayyidina al-Mahdi, ajaban-Allah, bi-jaahi nabiyyika wa`fu `anna w ’aghfir lanaa wa tub `alayna tubna wa raja'na.

O Our Attenders from east to west! A time is coming that all nations will run to hear a heavenly declaration, and therefore we are saying, “O People! Enough that you are drunk! Try to come, listen, and know." We must try to know. We are coming here and it is not suda, waste, not like we are leaves that are at times on trees and after a while fall to Earth and another time going to be past. We must know about ourselves: for what purpose and how we are here for a while and then we will disappear. Allah Almighty sends hundreds or thousands of chosen ones, those who have a relationship from Earth to Heavens, Malakoot, who inform and warn people as they know something about Mankind and everything around them.

And we are saying, “a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem.” Always we must say, "O our Lord! We are running to You from Shaytan!" because Shaytan is running to make people not believe what prophets bring from Heavens. Prophets call, "O People! Come and believe," but Shaytan runs after people, saying, "Don't believe." Astaghfirullah..

People say, “This is like fairy tales from old times with no reality, so don't believe in them, just run after whatever your physical beings enjoy and don't think about anything else." Shaytan is using different names through which there is the same poison to make our understanding zero. Now entire nations are drunk, as Sayyidina `Ali (r) said, “People are sleeping and never awaken until death comes to them, then they are awake, asking what happened.”

Allah Almighty sends angels to them by the holy command of Heavens, who say, “O People! Don't ask what is happening as you were warned about it throughout your life, and you said it is a fairy tale from old times. Now time is over and we are taking your souls to your Maker, because this is not your true destination from where you originally came. We are taking you to that place.”

O People! We are reaching so near our destinations, about which the Seal of Prophets (s) informed us. The Day of Resurrection is so near and coming to you, so beware! Now we are living so much closer to the Last Day that the trumpet will soon be blown. Before, there were so many things you never believed, but now you see heavenly events as told to us by the prophets, now coming one after one.

Dastoor, yaa Sayyidi. Today is the 14th of Shabaan. It is a holy month, and the night of 15th of this holy month is going to be the most important night of the year, after the Night of Power. Maybe that, maybe this (is more important); only He knows! Prophets taught us about the Night of Bara`ah, when everyone’s destiny for the coming year is decided and written, what will happen to them individually and collectively.

Tonight is the beginning of the heavenly New Year, which begins on the Night of Bara`ah. Our fate is going to be written individually and commonly on the Preserved Tablet: who is coming to life and who is leaving this life for the Next Life. Names are written of those who will come to dunya, and their time in dunya is decided--forty years, thirty years, fifty years, ninety years, seventy years--and it is written for each person, and everything about his personal life. That will never change: who will come, who will die, what they will do, and what will be for them in this world, both individually and commonly.

Now we are in the last part of the life of Mankind, through the 15th Islamic century running into the 16th century. According to our intentions, according to our work and actions, tonight we may change (what is written, because after that there will be) no changing.

People on Earth are of two kinds: some are in the positive groups and others are in the negative groups. The positive groups are believers running after good deeds, towards their Lord and towards the creatures of the Creator. They are useful ones. The other group, the negative people, never think about the approach of the Last Days and they only make trouble for people, killing them, causing suffering. One group is trying to help people, asking to make them happy. The second group, the negative ones, is always giving trouble and that makes them happy! Tonight the deeds of all people will be written to be either on the right hand (goodness) or on the left hand (sins).

O People! According to Prophet (s), tonight it is such an important night, so keep yourself with your Lord in a good condition, so you may reach your Lord's mercy, so you will be happy here and Hereafter. This is the first night, and tomorrow will be the first day of a new year for the whole world. It is not a Hijri year or Western-calendar year; it belongs to Heavens.

O People! Keep your physical being and your hearts clean for a new beginning. I fear that the bad actions of people and their worst intentions may carry them suddenly to a heavenly punishment. They may cause a heavenly revenge to come on them if they do not say, “O our Lord! You created us and we did so many wrong things, and You are the Only One to forgive what we did and to give us such good energy that we may become Your obedient servants!”

O People! This is important for tonight, as this may be the last last holy night for people, as next year the appearance of this world may be changed: it may be that from five people only one will survive and four will pass away! This is a curse, because people are running on Death's way. Therefore, whoever is going on that side may touch every kind of punishment and will stay according to heavenly knowledge. It may be only a handful people remain here. I don't think we are understanding that if a punishment happens on Earth, you would find it as an empty desert with no homes, trees, oceans, rains, and anything that pleases people will be taken away! Who remains, Allah Almighty will open for them another world.

A day will come when your world will be changed beyond recognition and people will ask, “Is this our dunya that we lived in?” It may be changed wholly and only a handful of people will remain who believe and give high respect to their Lord, while the rubbish of others will be swept away.

O People! What Allah Almighty is saying will happen, and I am asking forgiveness for me and for you. I am asking that our intentions will be good ones. May Allah forgive us and send us some leaders who may carry us on a safe way with which Allah will be happy; otherwise, understanding will be taken away.

O People! Today dunya, tomorrow the graveyard! Don't say, “I am rich,” or, “I am the richest one.” It will never give any benefit to you; only good deeds will benefit you with your Lord. Yaa Rabbana!

We are only Your servants. Don't leave us to Shaytan to become his servant! Whoever runs to Allah will be saved and whoever runs after Shaytan will be taken to Hellfire, astaghfirullah!

It is an ocean that we may speak up to next week or next year if given the power, but I am weak and you are weak, also. Ask for Allah Almighty's forgiveness and His endless Mercy Oceans. Ask for the honor of the Seal of Prophets (s), and that we may be saved from badness and from going to a bad destination after death!

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

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Kareem Allah.

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Subhaan Allah.

Subhan sen, Sultan sen, yaa Rabb!

You are Sultan! You are Subhaan! You are Rahmaan! O our Lord.

Ighfir lanaa maa madaa fee salif hayatuna! Give us Your forgiveness and send to us Your good people who may save us and change our lifestyles to become followers of Holy Qur’an and Holy Islam, for the honor of Rasoolullah, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)!

Allahuma salli `ala Sayyidina Muhammadin wa `aala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallim.

Allahuma salli `ala Sayyidina Muhammadin wa `aala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallim.

Allahuma salli `ala Sayyidina Muhammadin wa `aala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallim.
