O Salafi `Ulama! Can You Describe the Seven Heavens?

Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

12 January 2009 Lefke, Cyprus

(Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

Dastoor yaa Sayyidee, madad. Madad yaa Sultan al-Awliyaa! La ilaaha illa-Llah, la ilaaha illa Llah, la ilaaha illa Llah, Muhammadan Rasoolullah `alayhi 's-salaatullah. Thumma salaamu `alayka yaa Sayyidee, yaa Sahibu 'z-zamaan, yaa Qutbu 'z-zamaan as-salaamu `alayka, as-salaamu `alayk yaa RijaalAllah bayn al-mashaariq wa 'l-maghaarib amidoona bi madadikum

We are saying, `aoodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaan 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem, Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem, Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem, Allah Allah, subhanAllah, subhanAllah, SultaanAllah! (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

As-salaamu `alaykum listeners, who are asking min khabar as-sam’aa, news of the heavens. O Salafi `ulama, why are you not saying, why are you not speaking to people about khabar as-sam’aa (news of heavens)? You are always occupying yourselves to look after people's `ayb, faults. Leave them! Come and say what is the news of the heavens. What are the heavens? What is there? What is the reality of the heavens that Allah Almighty is informing His creatures about; to Mankind, those on the top of Creation. Do you know any creature over the level of Mankind O Salafi `ulama? If you are knowing, say it and teach us. We are asking which book from the Holy Books, except for the Holy Qur'an, is in the the top position? Do you know any holy book above the Holy Qur'an? Nothing. The Old Testament and New Testament were granted as heavenly messages to Mankind but are not reaching the level of the Holy Qur'an because no one can reach the level of that one who has been given the Holy Qur'an. (Mawlana stands.) Stand up! You must stand up for the honor of Sayyideena Muhammad (s)!

The Holy Qur'an is saying saba` samaawaat, "seven heavens". What is that? Are you knowing about as-samawaat? If you know and are not saying, then it is a big sin for `ulama, because they have given an oath that they will declare to people the holy words of the most holy book in the heavens: the Holy Qur'an from the Lord of Heavens, Allah Almighty. I am never hearing any Salafi or any other `ulama speaking on the heavens; all of them trying to say something that is not really asked, no! The Lord of Heavens, "Who is That One?"

First, you must know about the heavens and then you must ask, Who is bringing heavens into existence? What does it mean, "heavens"? You must teach people. Our master is granting a weak servant to address all people on Earth, not just a handful, but all who are under the umbrella of humanity, these words are addressing all of them. If these are addressing all, (then) you must say about heavens. The Holy Qur'an was granted to the Seal of Prophets (s), the most honored one. No one from any creature can reach his level and his station. What is his station, do you know? You know, but you are not saying what his station is. O Salafi `ulama, you are reciting the Holy Qur'an, O Salafi `ulama, you are speaking about it, but why are you not speaking about that one who was granted the Holy Qur'an? Who is that one? What is his position? You recite the Holy Qur'an. You find it or not? I have never heard you `ulama speak on that point.

And who is sending something to my heart and making me sit here and address people? It is not something prepared. Heavenly inspirations are just being sent, waaridaat but more than that, to see and to say, what is the position of the Seal of Prophets (s)! Who is that one? You must say! I may bring a book and first I am looking, who is the editor, and people giving value to that book according to it's editor. Like you, like me, people look and say, "Hmm, we know what he is saying." But you must say something that people can't say, "We know this." Therefore I am signing (highlighting) this, particularly for Salafi `ulama, because they are mudda`ee, claiming their knowledge top-level, and they can't accept over their knowledge anyone's knowledge. How you can say this? And Allah Almighty is saying, wa fawqa kulli dhee `ilmin `aleem, "But over all endued with knowledge is One, the All-Knowing." (12:76)

How can you cut the way of others and say you are on top point? Top point means beyond that is nothing. (You claim,) "No one can be like us, because we are Salafi `ulama, the others are Sunni!" Which ones are up? Salafi, Sunni or Shi`a `ulama? Make it clear. When you are reaching the top, what is your manzhar, the panorama you are looking and seeing. There is a minaret till you are reaching sharfa, a balcony with some small holes on the minaret, to let weather inside. Sometimes I was also going up to make adhaan and looking through these small holes, I could see but it is so narrow; a narrow panorama, but when you are going up to the balcony, manzhar is something else. You are looking through a small hole and claiming, "No one may see what I am seeing and no one is knowing what I'm knowing now, because I'm looking and seeing." You can look all around a balcony and your manzhar is endless, but they are looking and saying, "Maasha-Allah, I am reaching a station that no one else reaching, from where I see so many things." Therefore, the rank of `ulama is different according to their steps to heavens. They are going up and looking all around and seeing a panorama that belongs to the city. They are making me say such things with an example; they are speaking on something very small. But we are asking more now, (for example) what is behind that which we are looking and seeing? Because every glance is directing how far you can see in every direction.

Now we are coming to the heavens and the Lord of Heavens. What are the heavens? Are we in something material or are the heavens an unknown creation and situation? Are heavens just built from concrete, or iron, or mud, or wood, or metal? What are the heavens? And just mention to people that there are seven heavens!

Now they are speaking for the honor of the Seal of Prophets (s), that one who is bringing us mafhoom, an understanding of the heavens. We must say the t`aareef : the definition must be known by someone perfectly from every side. Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar! Who is that one that can explain to us more and more about the heavens? Only one, Sayyideena Muhammad (s). (Mawlana stands.) What is his personality? Who is that one? Why are you not saying? Make it clear for all people! Who is that one, who knows about the heavens and is authorized to speak on it? You Salafi `ulama!? From where is that knowledge coming to you? It is coming from the Seal of Prophets, Sayyideena Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana stands.) Who is that one? Say it, tell us!!!

Now I am attacking on Salafi `ulama or every `alim who is claiming they are `alim and they are not making clear the personality of the Seal of Prophets (s)! SubhaanAllah, Subhaanallah. Are you reciting the Holy Qur'an, O Salafi `ulama? Reciting? Did you reach even the lowest understanding for the personality of the Seal of Prophets (s)? You or so many `ulama on your level saying, (Mawlana stands.) "Sayyideena Muhammad is just (as) I am, he is also." What is that foolishness?! What is that ignorance?! You are giving his identity to be as a postman carrying letters, going and giving!! So many new-fashion Salafi `ulama and countless doctors claiming they are "doctors of Shari`ah", I am asking them also: what is the personality of the Seal of Prophets (s)? Do you know? If you don't know, you are nothing! That personality that the Lord of Heavens dressed to him, Iblees was asking (for it) before, and he was hoping that dress should be his. That means Shaytan was knowing about the personality of the Seal of Prophets (s) and you are not knowing!! and saying, "Postman"? You and so many foolish ones, so many new-fashion "doctors of Shari`ah". Which Shari`ah? May be so many shaytanic ways. I am asking `ulama from east to west, from north to south, who is Muhammad? (Mawlana stands.) Say! And what is his personality or (beware, as Allah [swt] says), inna batsha Rabbika la-shadeed, "Your Lord's punishment is truly stern." (85:12)

Keep your no-value words!! Try to learn about Sayyideena Muhammad (s) or you leave to be `ulama, you can't be Muslims!! Therefore, first of all, the whole Muslim community, whole Muslim world, must teach their children and adults who is our Prophet (s). What have you learned what is the Holy Qur'an saying about that one? You must think on it. Don't worry, say and you should reach an honor; if not, you are going to be with Shaytan. The Lord of Heavens saying now, "Take care! Intabihoo!" O Salafi `ulama and doctors, you must say! You must know we are speaking from the Holy Qur'an, and this is not from my mind's productions. Holy Qur'an is saying about that one, astaidhubillah, (Mawlana stands) `asaa 'an yab`athaka Rabbuka maqaaman mahmooda, "Soon will your Lord raise you to a Station of Praise and Glory!" (17:79)

True or wrong?!! Arabic or Turkish? Newspapers or Allah's Word? Allah fee tazheemi 'n-Nabi. Anything we are speaking, (is it) out from Holy Qur'an? How (do you have) no ihtiraam, respect for that most glorified one? We are asking his intercession. Look! Allah is giving His most high respect and saying, asa an yab`athaka. Qaf liman? For whom, asaa 'an yab`athaka Rabbuka maqaaman mahmooda? To whom? To Moses or to Jesus Christ, or to Abraham, Noah, Yaqub, Yusuf or Ishaaq? For whom was this heavenly addressing kept? For whom Allah Almighty was saying??

Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar. This is an endless ocean and we getting in it, so difficult; therefore, we must stop it here. not oceans, but oceans, O People! you must be happy that you are from his (s) nation, that you have been granted the honors of past nations and past prophets. Allah, Allah. Shaytan making that one to say, "this is an ordinary person." You can't do that, it is kufr! Anyone else? Wrong-understanding Salafi people are addressing to whole nations and I am nothing.
