Peace Is Granted to Humanity When We Say, "As-salaamu `alaykum".

Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

9 May 2010 Lefke, Cyprus

Dastoor, madad yaa RijaalAllah. (Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

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

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Kareem Allah

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Subhaan Allah

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Sultaan Allah

Mina 'l-azaali mina 'l-abaad. Anta' s-Sultan, Yaa Maaliku 'l-Mulk. Subhaansen, Sultaansen. You are Subhaan, You are Sultaan. Mutlaq, absolute sultanate, absolute praisings, absolute honors, absolute glorifying, absolute majesty are for You only, O our Lord! Subhansen, zid habeebaka. Give more honor and glory and majesty for your most beloved, most respected, most praised one, who represents Your Holy Name from beginning up to end, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! You are "Ahad;" he is Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

Oh our guide, dastoor. We are asking your support for an understanding. You are our representative on ad-dunya daniya, world of the lowest level of creatures, and you are living on this dunya with lowest level creatures. Subhaan Allah, Sultaan Allah!

As-salaamu `alaykum our attenders through east and west on this planet. That is a heavenly grant for everyone. Every creature is asking to reach that honor to be addressed from heavens, As-salaamu `alaykum! Allah, Allah. Such honor granted to Mankind, to humanity, no one would be able to measure the value of saying, As-salaamu `alaykum. Allah, Allah.

O Our Attenders! Don't think that only a handful of attenders are listening to this heavenly addressing! Now everyone on this planet is thirsty to reach something from heavens coming to Earth. If we were not created as Man, that salaam would never reach us. For the honor of humans, salaam, "peace" is being transmitted to Earth and if Mankind had not been created, salaam (peace) would never come on Earth! For the honor of Mankind, peace comes to this plane, so that everyone may taste something from rahmat, heavenly mercy! They desire to reach that mercy in accordance their physical beings in this Creation. Allahu akbar!

Heavenly knowledge reaches some special, selected people, some chosen ones to whom heavenly knowledge reaches, and it has also reached me through my Grandshaykh (q).

We know the Lord of Heavens created four seasons on Earth, and of those seasons, spring is known for its rain; there is something very special about spring rain. Throughout the spring season--March, April and May--in these three months there is also the most valuable rain. Yet the most precious month of spring is April, and there is wisdom and reasons for that month being so special. It has been selected to have such a quality because the Seal of the Prophets (s), the most beloved one for whose honor all was created, was born in April! (Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

That is hidden knowledge and it carries hidden treasures that are hidden wisdoms. Of all twelve months, April is so beloved and the most valuable treasures are granted in that month. The Lord of Heavens sends rain from the heavens; such rain that reaches Earth and gives it new life. If it did not rain, Earth would dry out and nothing more would grow. It is well-known to heavenly, holy people that rain comes from under the Holy Throne. If it gives one drop, all that rain takes barakah, blessings from it, then that rain gives new life to everything. It changes them and takes terrible burdens from everything, particularly from Man. And whoever knows that secret wisdom will stand under that rain, allowing it to completely touch their bodies.

O Salafi `ulamas, marhaban. Do you know such things? I don't think you know only to say hadeethu 'n-nabawiyyatu 'sh-shareefa, and that this or that is mawdu` (fabricated), or da`eef (weak). No! You must try to know something, and you must not judge everything, because judgment is ultimately for Allah Almighty! Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.) When those drops of April's rain fall, even the fishes in the oceans come up, opening their mouths to reach just one spot of that rain, opening and waiting. Allahu akbar! All Creation is waiting to reach that mawj, waves of mercy. This is such an example: when one person says, As-salaamu `alaykum, that salaam comes with such mercy that everything in Creation, everything on this planet looks and asks for more and more of the blessings to reach them; they are opening to receive it, like those fish. Allahu akbar!

But Mankind is so ignorant and heedless! That is the biggest heavenly grant to those living on this planet, and it is only for Mankind. Other creatures have not been granted this but still they are asking to reach something of that holy blessing that reaches Earth. Everything takes their share in existence and to them also comes an opening. It is not strange, (it is a fact) that when Prophet (s) says to a a dead person, As-salaamu `alayka, that person must stand up. Such a power is granted through salaam!

O People! Always say to each other, As-salaamu `alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh. Therefore, we say, As-salaamu `alaykum our attenders. This salaam is something else. They are making such a weak servant address all people through east and west through such instruments (Internet). The Lord of Heavens grants heavenly blessings to reach His most beloved one's nation. Therefore, He has ordered if a person arrives at meeting, he must say, As-salaamu `alaykum: that opens the doors of rahmah, mercy for people.

Everything asks for this mercy and blessing. Therefore, Sayyidina Muhammad (s) said, As-salaam qabl al-kalaam, "Say salaam before speaking." Don’t speak before giving salaam. Salaam is the first thing to make your meeting under heavenly protection. Because if you are not saying, as-salaam qabl al-kalaam, the most dangerous enemy of Mankind may join you. When you are saying, As-salaamu `alaykum, that salaam cannot reach Shaytan. And it ran up and said, "As-salaamu `alaykum." Iblees came and said, "As-salaamu `alaykum." The Seal of Prophets (s), the most glorified, who has been granted majesty, said, "O `adoowullah! O most mukrih, most hated one in the Divine Presence! Salaam belongs to us. We are not saying to you, 'Wa `alaykum as-salaam.' No! It is for us!"

Salaam is a powerful, honored word that is a heavenly address to people living on this planet.

O Salafi `ulamas! Marhaban. And we also direct our address to Azhar ash-Shareef `ulamas who are now becoming proud of such imitated titles, saying, "We are doctors." We are not doctors! Don’t put that in front of your name, "Dr. Fulan, Doctor of Shari`ah." It is against Shari`atullah. Leave such imitated titles that will never give benefit to you here or Hereafter. No one on the Day of Resurrection honors you, and no salaam comes to you because of that! Therefore, they are making me to address all `ulamas who use such wrong, imitated titles. They practice Shari`ah according to their Salafi madhhabs. No, leave that! Be simple! Don’t run after any imitated title, hoping that will give you honor. No, you maybe be a doctor, a professor or anything else. Yet that never gives you honor in the Divine Presence. The only honor you must learn and use and teach people, the most high honor for you, is obedience and service: to be a servant of your Lord.

Why are you not writing at the beginning of your names, "A humble servant of our Lord, Fulan (somebody)." Why are you not writing this? You are writing, "PhD." For what? Why do you not write at the beginning of your names, "A weak servant, hoping to be accepted in the Divine Presence as the weakest servant?" That gives honor to whoever writes it! And you are getting angry with such an old person. Why? If it is not true, say! Why Shi`a `ulamas are not writing it in front of their names? Instead, they write before their names ayatullah or hujjatullah or such a titles? Why they are not writing, "A weak servant asking to be accepted in the Divine Presence, as the weakest servant!" Because those titles give an imitated honor to you on this planet through people. Don’t ask an honor from people. No, but you must look to yourself and teach people to say, "These people are destroying their spirituality with some imitated titles of no value!"

O People! Therefore, when you say, As-salaamu `alaykum, it gives you an honor from heaven, and through that honor comes mercy and rain over people, renewing their real beings, and they become stronger and stronger servants of the Lord. Why do you not begin your speeches by saying, "O my listeners, you are listening to a very weak servant of our Lord. Perhaps the Lord of Heavens will grant some real values, such that you will be happy with them here and Hereafter."

O `ulamas! You are the people of the 15th-century (hijrah year). You are writing, speaking and teaching, but you are not teaching such important points. What a waste! You are losing your heavenly chance because you are not applying these points to yourselves, nor are you passing them to people and teaching them! You are not wayl (warning) those people running to be known as big scholars, no! That has no value. Allah Almighty will ask you, "You're aim was to be the most well-known scholar, but why did you not ask to be a servant in My Divine Presence?" He will question everyone who claims such things.

May Allah forgive us!

O People! Come and accept reality,then you will be happy. You will be granted heavenly grants here and Hereafter.

May Allah forgive us. As-salaamu `alaykum.

(Mawlana Shaykh sings.)

Dome, dome, dome, dome

Dome, dome, dome, dome

Dome, dome, dome, dome

Dome, dome, dome, dome

Absolute Greatness is only for the Lord of `Arsh, the Holy Throne. Remember that, O people! May Allah forgive us.
