Ladies' Suhbah and Dhikr
A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. As salaamu `alaykum. Just we have angels around the world that are special for dhikr places, where they find majlis dhikr. And all these angels you cannot see them or feel them, because they are made of light. And millions and billions of angels come and cover us when we make our dhikr, we read our Qur'an, we make our salawaat and tahleel (recite la ilaaha illa-Llah) and everyone goes to their homes. Then the angels immediately go under the Throne of Allah (swt).
Allah (swt) says to His angels, "Open the mercy cabinet and wash My servant with My Mercy Shower. Give them a shower."
And the angels say, "Yaa Rabb! Not all came just for dhikr." Maybe some people came to see who is Hajjah Naziha, to hear her voice, or maybe to meet friends in this group; not everyone comes especially for dhikr. So the angels ask, "Yaa Rabb! How are we going to wash them with Your mercy?"
Allah (swt) says, "Who sits in majlis dhikr, no one leaves without something. It must be that everyone has some drop of My blessing to them."
And these angels say, "Yaa Rabb! We are your slaves." We are slaves to Allah (swt) as we were created to worship Him. So the angels ask, "Not all of these people came especially for dhikr." As I said before maybe they came to meet someone, to see what is going on in this halaqat adh-dhikr, because some people say dhikr is kufr or bida`, and they say, "Let's go to see what kind of bida` these women are doing!" (laughter)
Allah (swt) says, "Who comes to My dhikr majlis, nobody goes without anything! Everyone has a shower, cleaned from his bad manners." We have all goodness, alhamdulillah.
And the angels ask, "How will these people worship You after they know what You will give them?"
Then Allah (swt) shows them how is Paradise and which Paradise He is going to give us. The ground of Paradise is made of diamonds and the trees are made from (inaudible). You are not able to think or imagine how Paradise is, so very beautiful!
Alhamdulillah, He created all of us from Ummat Sayyidina Muhammad (s), because we are weak. We are the last generation from Ummat Sayyidina Muhammad (s), and we are very lucky because we are the last ummah also, because we are not going to sleep very long in the dirt after we die. Our stay is going to be very short because our life is just very little.
Just Allah had mercy on us to create us from Ummat Sayyidina Muhammad (s) and made us mureeds of Shaykh Nazim, alhamdulillah. And we must make two raka`at everyday shukran lillah because He created us from Ummat Sayyidina Muhammad (s) and as mureeds of Shaykh Nazim. This is very little for us to do, we must do every day shukran lillah because He created us from Ummati Sayyidina Muhammad (s) and made us mureeds of Sayyidina Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani. Because every mureed has his own shaykh, as every prophet has his own nation. Alhamdulillah all of us are following Shaykh Nazim, alhamdulillah. May Allah keep us following his steps here and Hereafter. Inshaa-Allah Allah (swt) gives him long life, and gives you long life. And may Allah shower us with His mercy all the time.
Please, every month come for dhikr one time, or every year come one time for dhikr, or in every lifetime come one time for this dhikr, and we are going to be very blessed from Allah (swt). As much as you can, gather and support each other, because we also have around us people who don't believe about dhikr, saying it is bida`(religious innovation). This is not bida`, because from our love to Allah (swt) and Prophet (s) we are coming, and we mention the name of Allah (swt). When we love someone, we repeat his name many times. We make salawaat for Prophet (s).
You have many, many high steps to be in Paradise. Don't think that you are coming here walking; you are not walking on your feet, you are walking on the top of the wings of the angels! For every step you make, ten sayiaat are going, ten hasanaat are written, and ten high steps of Paradise are coming.
This majlis dhikr is a very beautiful dhikr halaqah. Inshaa-Allah all the time keep yourself able to attend at least one time in the month, and try your best to be with Hajjah all the time to have dhikr. May Allah bless you (our host) and bless all of you. Thank you for listening to me.
Bi hurmati 'l-habeeb, bi hurmati 'l-Fatihah.
