Light Holes, Black Holes

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

23 November 2009 Lefke, Cyprus

Dastoor, yaa Sayyidee. Madad, yaa Sultan al-Awliya. (Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

O People! Stand up for the glorifying of our Lord, our Creator. And we are saying, Yaa Allah, ant Allah. La ilaaha illa Anta Subhaanaka, Subhaanaka maa `azhamu shaanaka, maa `azhamu shaanaka, ma `azhamu shaanak, Your creation. Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, laa ilaaha illa-Llah, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, wa lillaahi ‘l-hamd! We are asking, as weak servants, Your forgiveness and Your blessings for the honor of the most honored one in Your Divine Presence, Sayyidina Muhammad (s). Give him more and more honor and more glory, O our Lord. Alfu salaat, alfu salaam `alayka yaa Sayyidi ‘l-awwaleen wa’l-aakhireen. We are asking your intercession so that we may stand up, so that we may understand and so that we can do as you like.

A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani ‘r-rajeem. Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmaani ‘r-Raheem. That is our master’s order. Before addressing him, he ordered that we must say, a`oodhu billahi min ash Shaytaani ‘r-rajeem. Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmaani ‘r-Raheem. O our Lord, we are running to You, to run to You is something that only we can understand through words, but real meaning that we are running to You, where we are and where He is. Do you think that there is a distance between ourselves and Him Almighty?

Madad, O our master! Make it more clear for our weak understanding. Now people, their understanding when we are saying we are running to Allah from Shaytan, where is Allah? Once coming in holy presence of Rasoolullah (s) one person, and saying, “Yaa Rasoolullah, I did something (a sin) and I must give freedom for one of my slaves (as penitence). But I’m not knowing if she is Muslim or a follower of idols.”

“Who is that one?”

And there was a young one, jaariyah. She was a maiden and Rasoolullah asking to that one, “Are you believing in God?”

She is saying, “Yes.”

“Where He is?” asking Prophet (s).

Saying, “on skies.”

“Okay, you may release her way.”

That is the lowest level for believing.

So many people now when they are making struggling two ones, one may say, “O Man, fear from Allah!” and he is signing “up” (pointing to the sky), and that is acceptable according to their understanding level; Allah (swt) is accepting. If he is saying “up”, enough. Therefore, now when we are saying, “Run to Allah”, we are not making it so deeply, no. We are not intending to make a place or maqaam; we are not thinking for Allah a throne to be put on it. But we are saying God, up-looking to You. Beware! And Allah Almighty is everywhere. Allah Almighty’s Being is not needy to stand up on it or sit on it. So many people I was asking.

O Salafi `ulama, once again to you because you are claiming that you are the most learned ones, I am asking you one question: your Lord is standing or sitting? What should be their answer? I would like to hear, Your Lord is standing or sitting? I must hear! I would like to hear their answer. Standing or sitting, both of them (are) a qualification for Man. Stand up or sit down. Sitting, yes, they may say that Allah Almighty `ala ‘l `arsh istawaa. What does it mean? They are saying, some of them that He is sitting on the Throne, `arsh. Why sitting? Tiring and sitting? Allah is tiring, or is Allah needy to sit on the Throne? Such questions, Salafi `ulama are not hearing as yet. They can’t say anything, but some of them are saying:

الرَّحْمَنُ عَلَى الْعَرْشِ اسْتَوَى

a ‘r-Rahmaanu `ala ‘l`arsh-istawaa,

The Most Gracious is established on the Throne (of authority). (20:5)

They are bringing a meaning that Allah Almighty is on His Divine Throne, sitting as a person may sit on his horse. Haasha! Astaghfirullah. How they can say this? Which thing can carry Allah Almighty? Everything that is created, He is the Creator. How can you say that Allah Almighty is riding on the Holy Throne or sitting on it? But so many people have wrong beliefs and they are making people to be mistaken. You can’t say Allah (swt) is up or down or right or left!

Two angels were coming and meeting. Not on Earth, above this Earth or down (below), not keeping that to be in existence.

“From where coming,” one asking,

“From my Lord’s Heavenly Presence. And you, from where you are coming?”

The other answering, “I am coming from down, from my Lord’s Divinely Presence.”

The Prophet (s) was saying, “Both of them are speaking the truth.” Because you can’t find anywhere that existence that the Lord of Heavens is keeping. Ayatu ‘l kareema,

إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُمْسِكُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ أَن تَزُولَا

inallaha 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)

Allah Almighty is keeping everything in existence. That means that if Allah Almighty leaving it, no more samawaati wa ‘l-ard, nothing in existence.

An atom for being in existence must be surrounded from six directions. Up power, down power, right power, left power, front power and back power. All of them must be on the same position if that atom is going to be in existence, ma yumsikuhunna, nothing holds them up (except) by His order, “Be!” Those Power Oceans coming into existence according to the Divine Will. Therefore, Grandshaykh (q) was saying that the whole of existence just appeared through Power Oceans, almighty oceans of Allah.

As-salaamu `alaykum, O our Listeners! When we are saying, as-salaamu `alaykum, we are asking. And that ocean, no one knows it’s beginning or ending. O People, think on it. The main purpose of such associations is to wake up our understanding because our understanding is sleeping; making like this, “Get up and look.” SubhaanAllah!

The physical authority that was granted to Man just reached it’s last point and saying from that One, from His countless names, “As-Salaam”, (the Peace). As-Salaam is to make you wake up. People are now in need of such an association, because Mankind has just reached the top point of their material being, istawaa, last limit or last horizon, just reached through technology now. Mankind has reached the last limit or last horizon through their physical being. That dome, dome, dome, dome is up to there. That is my last limit. I can’t step one more step.

As on the Night Journey, the heavenly journey m`iraaj, Jibreel (a) was with the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s). Therefore, so many holy ones are saying, “People like to be through sewage channels.” The honored companion, not a usual companion; to be the companion of Rasoolullah (s) is something else, not (like) your company with someone. The angel Jibreel (a) is a special companion, for his t`azheem, his honoring, he was with Sayyidina Muhammad (s), going up and up and up, until reaching to the seventh, last level of heavens, reaching it’s top station also. Archangel Gabriel (a) saying, “O Muhammad (s), my position is up to here. After this only you can go. If I put my feet just a millimeter, the glorious Nur, lightening, through that that no one knows what is there, will take me away, burning me and it will be impossible to come back here as archangel Gabriel. That is only for you. You may pass up.” Allah, Allah. Allahu akbar.

Who knows Muhammad, sall Allahu `alayhi wa sallam? Who nows? He, Allah, knows, raghman `ala anfihim, in spite of you, Wahhabis and Salafi people!

Dome, dome, dome, dome

Archangel Gabriel heard that "Dome, dome, dome, dome” and below that level, there was the heavenly singing of angels. That “Dome, dome, dome, dome, Dome, dome, dome, dome,” was up to there, but after that welcome to the Seal of the Prophets, Sayyidina Rasoolallah, another singing “Dome, dome, dome, dome.”

Another singing, dome dome dome dome, is for creatures, but there is a singing in the Divine Presence that no one can hear and no one can understand.

O People! Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar! We are losing our lives for nothing. We are losing such ranks, such wisdoms. Who is running through that ocean, Divine Dominion Oceans, such Beauty Oceans, such Lightening Oceans, such dominions of glory. We are such foolish ones! Not asking to get out to see what is outside. People are losing! You may put 100,000 pieces of time in it; it would be impossible to understand. But the Lord of Heavens is going to give them something, but not all of it is in miqdaar (measurable), even one drop from that Divine Oceans, not one dharrah, an atom from that ocean, whole oceans may enter and disappear in it like light holes. Dark holes, light holes. This whole creation is approaching there, going through that Light Ocean and disappearing, never coming once again. Therefore Jibreel (a) was saying to pass, but the light holes if swallowing, making it impossible for him to come back as himself. Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar.

O People! We are losing our chances for high grants. Endless Divine Glory Oceans, endless Lightening Oceans and Dominions. O People! Hear and think on what we have been granted from heavens. Try to be thankful to our Lord, Who created us for such an honor and we are not knowing. Now from East to West you can’t find someone that is looking at the dominions of that lightening coming from the dominions of the existence of our Lord. Each lightening bringing billions of worlds that you can’t make a counting.

O People! Therefore, when it is so simple, simple, simple thing to make something to people for the greatness of our Lord, Allah Almighty. Allahu akbar. May Allah forgive us.

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

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Kareem Allah

Who rising through that ocean’s dominions, divine dominion oceans is finishing every creation; finishing, finishing; (they reach a state of) fanaah fi’ Llah (annihilation in Allah).Allah (swt) makes us to be awakened a little bit to awaken understanding, or if we can understand, or if we can be. Even from one second you may put 100,000 pieces of time in it. It is important to understand.

Dome, dome, dome, dome

Dome, dome, dome, dome

Dome, dome, dome, dome

Dome, dome, dome, dome

Dome, dome, dome, dome

Dome, dome, dome, dome

Dome, dome, dome, dome

Dome, dome, dome, dome

Countless music that belongs to divine dominions, Lightening Oceans. Oh! Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar wa lillahi’l-hamd. We are asking forgiveness for the honor of the most beloved one in His Divine Presence, Sayyidina Muhammad (s).


What it is, it has been said now. Such a Knowledge Ocean from that, like an atom opening, going to swallow the whole world. We are so small, but we have been granted the glory of being deputy, and we are granted such a knowledge even angels can’t enter and understand. Their understanding is limited but Mankind’s limits, angels can’t reach.

The Arabs have a saying, ihtarim nafsak, “Keep your honor.” If not, you may lose your honor. Therefore, so many things are prohibited to Man, and each one is a terrible being taking honor from Mankind till they are going to be carrying nothing from honor. Try to keep at least last level of ihtiraam, highest respect.

Now the time is over and therefore, the coming days are bringing such an Unknown Oceans that never opened from the past, away from people. Their high ranks are over because they are not addressing by the Holy Qur’an. They are granted heavenly books, but stations of Holy Qur’an no one can reach.

O our Lord, forgive us! Yaa Rasoolullah (s), we are asking your intercession. Yaa Rasoolullah, for your honor we are asking an understanding, to understand and to make Mankind understand also.


Enough. For the honor of this majlis, association, O Lord, send us from Your endless Mercy Oceans even a dharra, atom or smaller than atom, to make our hearts to open and our understanding to be enlightened for understanding.
