O My Beloved One, Welcome to You!

Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

4 March 2010 Lefke, Cyprus

Bismillah, yaa rijaal Allah. (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.

And I am asking support from the one, he is Qutb al-mutassarrif, he is controlling everything on this world. May Allah grant him much more glory and authority for saving Mankind from Shaytan's tricks and traps. And we are saying a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani ‘r-rajim, protecting ourselves from falling into Shaytan's tricks or Shaytan's traps. Beware of tricks of Shaytan, and beware of representatives of Shaytan, who are following step-by-step the steps of Shaytan. May Allah take him away from ourselves! (Mawlana shaykh sits.)

Every time we must say bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem, every time. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem, that is the Muslim's sword. And this sword, subhaanAllah, when Sayyidina Musa (a) was on Jabal Tur (Mount Tur) speaking to his Lord, his Lord said... (Mawlana interrupts his sentence.)

Salafi `ulamas, marhaban! Hear these holy words also, so many wisdoms in it. Countless hikmat, countless knowledges, countless Power Oceans in Holy Qur'an. Look and take something and teach people what you are understanding.

Allah Almighty, Allah jal jallalahu is saying:

وَمَا تِلْكَ بِيَمِينِكَ يَا مُوسَى

wa ma tilka bi-yameenika yaa Musa?

"And what is that in the right hand, O Moses? (20:17)

Yes, this is a verse or not? Verse from Holy Qur'an. We are hearing what they are giving to me to speak to you. I don't know, they know. Allah Almighty is asking; He wasn't knowing? Allah Almighty is not knowing? And asking to him, wa ma tilka bi-yameenika yaa Musa (a)? Musa (a) haybatul mulki, with the glory and majesty of that addressing, he not was saying, qaala hiya a`saaya? “You know, O my Lord, You know what is in my hand. You are saying this.” And he was beginning to say, qalahiya asai? La hal wala qoowatah illa billa hilaliyal adzeem. SubhaanAllah, SultaanAllah. Up to today, I think that no one is asking those meanings, how he was saying qaala hiya `asayya? Was Allah (swt) not seeing what was in his hand? And then beginning to give much more tafsirat, details. Alahiya asai, atawakkaloo `alayha la`ushoobiha walamin waliya feeha ma`areeboo ukhra, Allahu akbar, Nabi Musa (a).

وَفَوْقَ كُلِّ ذِي عِلْمٍ عَلِيمٌ

Wa fawqa kulli dhi `ilmin `aleem

And above every knower there is a Higher Knower. (12:76)

Al-khitaab, the address through Holy Qur'an, Allah Almighty asking to teach the nation of Muhammad (s) (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.) to say, "You know, You know, You know."

And people now, even Muslims and believers, are trying to teach something for their Lord. Everyone asking to teach Allah Almighty through 21st century. Everyone saying about Islam that it is deenullah. Everyone bringing some ideas, mintika anfusiheem, mind production. They are bringing so many things about Holy Qur'an, about Sayyidi 'l-Awwaleen wa’l-Akhireen, Sayyidina Muhammad (s). (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.) They are asking to teach and so many people bringing ideas without an authority for them. Therefore, levels of awliyas is up, up, up, higher, higher, higher, but the level of `ulamas can't reach to their positions, to their levels. Awliyas' area that they walk in looking and learning is something else, but `ulamas' field that they are going around is according to their understanding, their levels. Therefore, awliyas' levels up from heavens, but `ulamas' field down until they are reaching to that levels, that levels of awliyas. Then their understanding should be, that Allah Almighty is asking, wa ma tilka bi-yameenika yaa Musa (a)? Then he used his mind, saying, wa maa tilka bi-yameenika yaa Musa (a)? Allah (swt) is not knowing it was his stick?

The level of Sayyidina Musa (a) is something, the level of the Seal of Prophets (s) is something else. On the Night Journey the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s), had reached the level that was the last point for Mankind as well as angels, ending there. And after that, the situation and the real being of the Seal of Prophets (s) just covering him. Therefore, the Seal of Prophet's (s) never went as his being up to that level. And no one can understand it and Allah Almighty is saying, "I am the only One here, not anyone else." Jibra'il, peace be upon him, was just falling down, can't be able to stand up. And the Seal of Prophets (s) was saying, "I am looking on that point when I have been called jal baroo tamawa`oon, 'O My beloved one.' And I passed and I was looking at a great angel, kabeer. He was like a carpet, haseer, like this, can't be able to stand up. He was passing out.'" Who was welcoming that night? Huuuu.

O Salafi `ulamas! Who was welcoming that night the Seal of Prophets (s)? That you are so disturbed if anyone giving honored words for the Seal of Prophets (s), you are saying, "Shirk, shirk, shirk!" I am asking a question; that is my right to ask and I am asking to you. Everyone knows about Laylatu 'l Mi`raaj, the Night Journey. Who was calling him? Jibra'il, Mika'il, Isra'feel, Izra'il and unknown great ones coming with him to the finishing point and all of them from the appearance of Lahoot, subhaanAllah! Lahoot belongs to Allah Almighty. When reaching there and the Lord's khitaab was addressing all of them there, "YAA MUHAMMAD!! (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) FADAL (COME IN), AHLAN WA SAHLAN, I AM WELCOMING YOU!!" (Mawlana Shaykh sits.) You are believing or not? Heh? But you are never happy to be welcomed or to be honored by that one whom his Lord is welcoming him! And you are so jealous people, if anyone saying "Sayyidina," you are saying, "No, say 'Muhammad!'" (Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

عِندَ سِدْرَةِ الْمُنْتَهَى عِندَهَا جَنَّةُ الْمَأْوَى

`Inda sidratul muntahaa `indahaa jannat al-mawaa.

by the lote-tree of the farthest limit,near unto the garden of promise.(54:14,15)

SAY SAYYIDINA!! (Mawlana Shaykh sits.) Who is welcoming? I am asking in front of whole Muslim world those people who are saying, "We are Wahabi," or saying, "We are Salafi." I am asking them, who was welcoming the Seal of Prophets (s)? Inda sidratul muntha indaha jannat al-mawaa. Who was welcoming? Say! Ridwan, or Maalik or Jibra'il or Mika'il, or Isra'fil (archangels)? Who was welcoming the Seal of Prophets (s), to give more honor to that one? Which honor can be more than that honor, to welcome him on the Night of Journey?! Allah Almighty was saying, "O My beloved one, welcome to you!"

I am becoming kafir with my words? You are giving a fatwah that I am becoming kafir? Astaghfirullah! You must correct your beliefs and your understandings about that one who was welcomed by Allah Almighty on the Night of Journey. Anyone who is learning through books, tell me. Anyone who is saying they heard such a thing or written through their books, perhaps someone just registering. Anyone, look in Muslim libraries, look in books. If anyone is refusing, which anbiyaa or which awliyaa is refusing what I am saying now? It can't be. They were saying, "O our Lord's weak servant, you are speaking on lowest degree for that mashad, scene."

And beyond that countless welcomings from the Lord of Heavens (swt) coming to him. Where is Musa (a)? Then ALLAH ALMIGHTY asking, "Yaa MUHAMMAD!!" (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) WHO ARE YOU?" What was his answer? "YOU MY LORD!" (Mawlana Shaykh sits.) That was real tawheed, Laa yathbut siwaahu, anyone to be with him. Real existence, Waajabu 'l-wujoob, (the Necessity of all necessities) Allah Almighty. Others, they are only khayaal, imagination or shadows! Maa waraahu, they are only an appearance, Laa yathbut siwaahu, no real existence for them. Allah is only One, and everything is Allah Almighty's shadows. Shadows may be when you are standing in the sun, what is coming on Earth is a shadow, as well as when you are looking in a mirror and you are seeing (a reflection), that is a shadow also. And shadows, if looking and putting two mirrors to look to each other, just you may look and see endless shadows, reflections on right hand and on left hand also, endlessly running. You may say, "This is like myself, but I can't touch it. Like myself, I look and see that he is representing my being but I can't reach and touch."

Therefore, Oneness is for Allah (swt)! Laa mawjuda ill-Llah, no one has a real existence through our universe; real existence is only for Allah Almighty. Therefore, the Seal of Prophets (s) was saying, adabanee Rabbee, "My Lord taught me good conduct," and his answer was 100 percent correct!

Allah (swt) was saying, “O My beloved one, come to Me.”

“O my Lord, no one is here, only You."

"Are you Me?"

"You know my Lord, who I am. Only You are here, no one else.” That is Haqeeqat al-Tawhid, the Reality of Oneness.

Saying kimse, “Who are you? Welcoming you.”

“Only you.”

“Welcome to you,” is saying, “Welcome to Me.”

Allahu akbar! SubhaanAllah, that is an ocean, not one ocean but oceans! Therefore, I am asking `ulamas, Sunni `ulamas, Shi’a `ulamas, Wahabi `ulamas, if I am wrong they may say I am wrong. They can’t say! Come and accept real Reality.

قَالَ هِيَ عَصَايَ أَتَوَكَّأُ عَلَيْهَا وَأَهُشُّ بِهَا عَلَى غَنَمِي وَلِيَ فِيهَا مَآرِبُ أُخْرَى

qaala hiya `asayya? atawkaa `alayhaa wa ahushu bihaa `ala ghanamee wa liya feehaa maaribu ukhraa.

He said, "It is my stick on it I lean; with it I beat down fodder for my flocks; and in it I find other uses." (20:18)

Musa (a) was saying, “O my Lord, that is my stick. I am standing on it and also I am looking, hiya `asayya? uhushu bihaa `ala ghanamee, I am looking for my sheep, flock.” And he said, “I can’t be able to continue,” coming on him heavenly lights and he can’t continue, saying, “O my Lord, wa liya feehaa maaribu ukhraa." Sayyidina Musa (a), Sayyidina Rasoolullah (s).

O People! That is most the important rule in Islam, `ati kulli dhi haqqin haqqah, "Give everyone who has a right his right." They are not asking that you to give something to the Seal of Every Creation (s), no, but they are asking only from you that you give what is for him, so that you are on the right way. If you are not giving what he has been granted, you are keeping it, then you are on the wrong way, followers of Shaytan. Shaytan was asking to be on that tajalli, on that level. When he was asking, he saw it was not for him and he became like drunk and throwing away. And what he threw away was the biggest teaching of adab for all of us.

O People! This is an ocean, endless oceans, we can’t speak more than this or you can’t carry. But if you are putting your ego outside and looking with your real being, you can see. But if you put your ego with you, you are always having wrong ideas, wrong theories, wrong understandings.

May Allah forgives us.

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

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

SubhaanAllah. SubhaanAllah. SubhaanAllah.

Sultaan Allah. Sultaan Allah. Sultaan Allah.

(45 minutes) Alhamdulillah, very heavy, strong khitaab, bihiz ad-dunya.(Mawlana laughs.) Yes, sir. As-salaamu `alaykum.

(Shaykh Hisham Effendi is sending salaams from Africa; he won't be able to call today.)

Because Shaykh Hisham is in Africa, he called me yesterday.
