Allahuma salli `ala Sayyidina Muhammad (s)


Dastoor ya sayyidee madad!


Days are passing and death is approaching. As days are passing, as death is approaching. And for sure that we are struggling between what is good and what is not good, between what is good and what is evil. And that is why Allah swt and the blessings of His Prophet Sayyidina Muhammad (s) bringing us together in such associations in order that we will be cleaned and turned as if we are born this moment.

Awliyaullah Allah’s saints, Allah’s friends, the pious sincere servants of Allah swt they run to a place; they run to their caves. Allah swt said in Holy Qur'an:

Those who were running in Surat al-Kahf, the Surah of the Cave, telling to those who were running away from the tyranny of that king, seven of them, might be five, might be seven, as mentioned in the Holy Qur'an,

سَيَقُولُونَ ثَلَاثَةٌ رَّابِعُهُمْ كَلْبُهُمْ وَيَقُولُونَ خَمْسَةٌ سَادِسُهُمْ كَلْبُهُمْ رَجْمًا بِالْغَيْبِ وَيَقُولُونَ سَبْعَةٌ وَثَامِنُهُمْ كَلْبُهُمْ قُل رَّبِّي أَعْلَمُ بِعِدَّتِهِم مَّا يَعْلَمُهُمْ إِلَّا قَلِيلٌ فَلَا تُمَارِ فِيهِمْ إِلَّا مِرَاء ظَاهِرًا وَلَا تَسْتَفْتِ فِيهِم مِّنْهُمْ أَحَدًا

Sa-yaqooloona thalaathatun rabi`uhum kalbuhum wa yaqooloona khamsatun saadisuhum kalbuhum rajman bi ’l-ghaybi wa yaqooloona sab`atun wa thaaminuhum kalbuhum qul rabbee a`lamu bi`iddatihim ma ya`lamuhum illa qaleelun fala tumari feehim illa miraan dhaahiran wala tastafti feehim minhum ahada.

(Some) say they were three, the dog being the fourth among them; (others) say they were five, the dog being the sixth,- doubtfully guessing at the unknown; (yet others) say they were seven, the dog being the eighth. Say thou: "My Lord knoweth best their number; It is but few that know their (real case)." Enter not, therefore, into controversies concerning them, except on a matter that is clear, nor consult any of them about (the affair of) the Sleepers.  Al-Kahf [18:22]

Allah said: There might be three and the dog is the fourth; and it might be five and the dog is the sixth; and it might be seven, and the dog is eight.
They were group of people running from the tyranny of the king and their dog with them. What Allah said to them? To avoid the tyranny of that king the tyranny of that person.


وَإِذِ اعْتَزَلْتُمُوهُمْ وَمَا يَعْبُدُونَ إِلَّا اللَّهَ فَأْوُوا إِلَى الْكَهْفِ يَنشُرْ لَكُمْ رَبُّكُم مِّن رَّحمته ويُهَيِّئْ لَكُم مِّنْ أَمْرِكُم مِّرْفَقًا

Wa idhi `tazaltumoohum wa maa ya`budoona illa Allaha fawoo ila ’l-kahfi yanshur lakum rabbukum min rahmatihi wa yuhayyi lakum min amrikum mirfaqa.

When ye turn away from them and the things they worship other than Allah, betake yourselves to the Cave: Your Lord will shower His mercies on you and disposes of your affair towards comfort and ease." Al-Kahf [18:16]


There in the cave Allah will spread His mercy on you and there He will arrange and fix your problem .

That is message for everyone to run from tyranny is to run to the cave. Any tyranny you have to run to the cave, means avoid them by running to a safe place. And where is that safe place. Where people have to run?

Everyone Allah swt guided him to a cave. It means turn to your Lord, run from the tyranny of shaytan; from the tyranny of evil power and reach running and struggling towards a distance that you can find finally at the end, if you keep running, you don’t say I am waiting until I find safety. If you are running for safety you have to keep running keep running until Allah gave them safety in that cave.

Our duty is to run for safety not out duty to sit on our chairs and say we are not interested. Then fire will reach you. Then evilness will reach you. you have to keep moving and this keep moving means keep struggling with your ego, with yourself until you reach the cave, and everyone has a cave in himself Allah did not create us with no safety. There is safety. Allah created sickness and he created a cure. Is it not, doctor? Dr. Nazeer?

Every sickness there is a medicine, that is Allah’s Mercy. For every illness there is a cure.

The Prophet (s) said, that “Every illness has a cure and every food has an illness and a cure except rice.” Rice no sickness from it. Rice is a complete cure to human being. So it means that for everything that Allah created what is good and to leave the bad.


فَأَلْهَمَهَا فُجُورَهَا وَتَقْوَاهَا

Fa-alhamaha fujooraha wa taqwaaha - And its enlightenment as to its wrong and its right. Shams 91:8

He inspired the self with what is good and what is bad. First was bad as he always put  the warning first. … put good at the end.

So that cave is our connection with our mashaykh. They are our caves. When Sayyidina Muhammad (s) left with Sayyidina Abu Bakr as-Siddiq, from Mecca to Madina where did they go? They went to the cave. What happened in the cave. Tranquility, tamaaneena came. Correct? Tranquility came. If they didn’t go to the cave, tranquility will not come. So Allah gave them a place. What Sayyidina Muhammad (s) said?

 La tahzan inna Allaha ma`na. he said to his companion, his friend, don’t get sad, Allah is with us.

And awliyaullah explained that Sayyidina Abu Bakr did not get sad that he is in problem but he got sad that the Prophet’s head on his lap and the snake came. That is why he was sad. And he said to him “don’t be sad, Allah is with us.”

That means when you enter the cave He takes you to the presence of the Prophet (s), then you fall under the ayah:

إِلاَّ تَنصُرُوهُ فَقَدْ نَصَرَهُ اللّهُ إِذْ أَخْرَجَهُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ ثَانِيَ اثْنَيْنِ إِذْ هُمَا فِي الْغَارِ إِذْ يَقُولُ لِصَاحِبِهِ لاَ تَحْزَنْ إِنَّ اللّهَ مَعَنَا فَأَنزَلَ اللّهُ سَكِينَتَهُ عَلَيْهِ وَأَيَّدَهُ بِجُنُودٍ لَّمْ تَرَوْهَا وَجَعَلَ كَلِمَةَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ السُّفْلَى وَكَلِمَةُ اللّهِ هِيَ الْعُلْيَا وَاللّهُ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ

Illa tansuroohu faqad nasarahu Allahu ith akhrajahu alladheena kafaroo thaaniya ithnayni ith huma fee alghari ith yaqoolu lisahibihi la tahzan inna Allaha ma`ana fa-anzala Allahu sakeenatahu `alayhi wa ayyadahu bi-junoodin lam tarawha waja`ala kalimata allatheena kafaroo as-sufla wakalimatu Allahi hiya al`ulya w’Allahu `azeezun Hakeem.

If ye help not (your leader), (it is no matter): for Allah did indeed help him, when the Unbelievers drove him out: he had no more than one companion; they two were in the cave, and he said to his companion, "Have no fear, for Allah is with us": then Allah sent down His peace upon him, and strengthened him with forces which ye saw not, and humbled to the depths the word of the Unbelievers. But the word of Allah is exalted to the heights: for Allah is Exalted in might, Wise. At-Tauba [9:40]


So that is message to everyone keep moving fwd. don’t sit and relax. No, then shaytaan will play. That is why our duty is to keep guiding ourselves to our goal and our goal is to connect our heart to the heart of our teacher. How to connect? Through that light that comes from his heart to our heart. You are expert in that professor, how to make lights connect to each other. Plug means plug that light that is coming from them.

At night you want to plug in the socket, you keep trying, until you find the right place and you put it in. This is our problem; we are veiled we cannot see.

So some people cannot see their nose. You have to close one eye to see your nose. With two eyes you have to focus inwards. But close one and you can see from this side.

So that means always keep your looking down, not always trying to look up everything.

Awliyaullah always look to where they are putting their feet in order to walk to step.

So when they put and reach their cave, Allah gives them knowledge is it not? What you say about them? When they are bringing this knowledge? People who understand say that is ma`rifatullah. They call it ma`rifatullah. In reality it is about ma`rifah about Allah you cannot know Allah but you know about him.

  You know about Allah swt. How can know Allah swt? Prophet when he reach the maqaam of qaba qawsayni aw adna he said, "O my Lord  I am only an abd, I am nothing.” When he saw the greatness that Allah opened to him in his Mi’raj, so in comparison to what Allah wants him to see he says, “I am nothing, I am nothing but a human being revealed to me.” It is out of humbleness he is saying this.

So when Allah loves His servant He dresses him.

Today doctors, these doctors, any more doctors. We have 3 doctors and you are a professor these doctors if someone comes and acts strangely they say he is psycho, is he not? What other word? He is crazy. He doesn’t know what he is saying. He hears commands and orders. Technophrenic. Doctor. Because he is already.

So because they are whispering in their minds these different they are getting different negative energy they get to their mind. Because there is normal mind of human being here and they are on lower side, not understanding. There are awliyaullah on this level above normal human being, they are superior they reach high level. At that time they reach positive knowledge. When they reach this knowledge they are schizophrenic in Allah’s love. They become there, their personality is one with you and one with the Prophet, and the Prophet is in Allah’s Presence. All their knowledge becomes from heavenly knowledge. Of course no one can understand it. That is why they said about Muhyideen ibn Arabi قدس سرّه, accusing him, no one can understand what they are saying. That is what they said about many saints. They cannot understand them. So this is normal reading and writing. You go a bit higher you cannot understand you are lost.

So those who are attracted that Allah put in their heart, then they go beyond. When Allah opened for their hearts the six types of knowledge which we explained many times, haqiqat al-fayd, haqiqat al-jazbah, haqiqat at-tawajjuh, haqiqat at-tawwasul, haqiqat at-tayy, haqiqat al-irshaad. Six realities when these are opened in their hearts their knowledge become above normal human knowledge above what people have iq. What is normal iq? 160. So they go above that iq. And some awliyaullah go above these six realities. They go into a level that is maqam adh-dharrah, maqam dharraat adh-dharrah, khafa, akhfa.

When you zoom in, in the computer. When you zoom out you see general picture. when you zoom in, in google map you, in sky or on earth you go more in and more in an more and more precise, awliyaullah they go to atom, that means smallest zooming possible that they go into the fine middle of the center of the circle. There are awliyaullah that go to dharraat adh-dharrah. Imagine in your mind the atom of the atom. They go to there until they reach a level of khafa, which is hidden which is in hand of the Prophet (s). And then the Prophet (s), Allah opens for him the maqaam al-khafa - the most hidden. Akhfa.

These knowledges of course no one is going to understand them from the normal level.

So awliyaullah go into a state of trance where they say things that you cannot focus on it. So when we explain that in brief and said that he said that Allah swt created everything… everything that He created is for Prophet (s). Everything that is other than Allah, means whatever Allah created from universes, from heavens, from earth from everything, is for Sayyidina Muhammad (s); for that reality that is a present in Allah’s Presence continuously. Allah is sending on that presence continuously with non-stopping and in every moment the Prophet (s) is increasing double of what he was before and that is beginning from beginning of creation and it is going on. He is not only the Prophet (s) of earth and human race but he is the Prophet (s) of any other creation that Allah created and we don’t know.

He is the one that through him go to angels in heavens in Paradise. He said, "lam yujidhu la shay, He didn’t bring anything into existence except that is all to the Prophet (s), because when He created these existences (in plural), all these existences are praising Allah swt in its own way. That one doesn’t know the other what he is saying.

Every leaf of the tree, not only that, but every atom of the leaf of the tree, is praising Allah, earth, heavens, other planets everywhere. If you want to think about it, it is beyond our understanding, especially to the professor, as he is a physics man. He put together the Hubble telescope. You know the universe how high it is and he was explaining to me today they are putting something together more powerful than the Hubble Telescope.

So imagine every star and every atom in every star,... Look at our planet. How many constellations we have? Billions. Around the sun and earth these 12 constellations, they are 12. These what you call in English, zodiac, balance, these are 12. when the earth is moving around the sun it passes by them, is it not? And it begins from 21 to 21. it is fixed time a cycle to go from one to the other and moving around the sun.

Look at these fixed constellations and SubhanAllah that Allah gave them shape that no one can put like that it is impossible. To show He gave them shapes and put stars together in a way that you can describe as a shape. If we look at this alone we are amazed. And they tell us there is some significance, what will happen, what will happen. Then if all these He created for sake of the Prophet (s). We are lucky because these the Prophet (s) gave to his Ummah.

When Grandshaykh and Mawlana Shaykh describing these it goes beyond normal understanding and people cannot understand what they are saying.

And he said, "also angels and all eight paradises and all earth, and everything that is in this universe, Allah swt ordered them continuing praising Him and worshipping Him and some of them prostrating, some of them on their knees, some of them standing, as he mentioned in the Holy Qur'an:

 الَّذِينَ يَذْكُرُونَ اللّهَ قِيَامًا وَقُعُودًا وَعَلَىَ جُنُوبِهِمْ وَيَتَفَكَّرُونَ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ رَبَّنَا مَا خَلَقْتَ هَذا بَاطِلاً سُبْحَانَكَ فَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ

Alladheena yadhkuroon’Allaha qiyaaman waqu`oodan wa `ala junoobihim wa yatafakkaroona fee khalqi’s-samawaati wa l-ardi rabbana ma khalaqta haadhaa baatilan subhanaka faqina `adhaaba an-naar.

Men who celebrate the praises of Allah, standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides, and contemplate the (wonders of) creation in the heavens and the earth, (With the thought): "Our Lord! not for naught Hast Thou created (all) this! Glory to Thee! Give us salvation from the penalty of the Fire. Ali-`Imran [3:191]

Who are those?

Human beings? It means anyone that Allah created is in complete worshipness. Angels, jinn, human beings animals, trees, everything, water, anything that we know., together with what we don’t k now of heavenly creature or different creature that Allah created together with the planets they are on, are all together worshipping and praising standing and sitting and bowing.

And Allah made them all, and He said, "I am explaining the verse ‘We have honored human beings.’” The honor that Allah made for human beings makes the worship of all those creations [a gift] for the human beings.  [As Allah is saying:] Without differentiation, all that I created and they are worshipping Me, O Muhammad (s), I am giving to the human race.”

وَلَقَدْ كَرَّمْنَا بَنِي آدَمَ وَحَمَلْنَاهُمْ فِي الْبَرِّ وَالْبَحْرِ وَرَزَقْنَاهُم مِّنَ الطَّيِّبَاتِ وَفَضَّلْنَاهُمْ عَلَى كَثِيرٍ مِّمَّنْ خَلَقْنَا تَفْضِيلاً

Wa laqad karramnaa banee adama wa hamalnaahum fi’l-barri wa ’l-bahri wa razaqnaahum mina’t-tayyibaati wa faddalnaahum `ala katheerin mimman khalaqnaa tafdeela.

We have honored the sons of Adam; provided them with transport on land and sea; given them for sustenance things good and pure; and conferred on them special favours, above a great part of our creation. Al-Isra [17:70]


Allah is as if saying: “These heavenly beings, subtle beings, these atoms that are created in these planets and in all creation, plants and waters and all things. They don’t need to worship. But I made them to worship and give all that worship to you.”

“Because all of that I created from My light and My light doesn’t need to worship, but I made them to worship and I gave it to those whom I created from My light, the Prophet’s light and Adam’s light.”

Grandshaykh said, “if people know that Allah gave to them what Allah blessed them, then no one will worship if He gives from that knowledge. Everyone will sit back and say, ‘O I am saved.’ But Allah wants us to worship and to show our love to Him; to pray and fast and give charity and perform hajj, to acknowledge that Allah is our Creator and Sayyidina Muhammad (s) is His sincere messenger. We want to show Him our love - that is why we are worshipping. “And,” [as if Allah is saying], “they will not worship if I open [that secret] to them. I want to see how much they love Me, if they worship or not.”

If you give someone a big jar of honey, can he eat it? No he can eat only one spoon.

So Allah gave us one big jar of honey, but Allah is giving us only one spoon to eat.

Awliyaullah they pick up these knowledges.

And although the saying is true, “sayyid al-qawmi khadimuhum - the master of a people is the one who serves them.” So by making them to worship Allah and praise Him then Allah also gives them rewards as they didn’t do it for themselves but they did it for us and they did that worship and then said, " this is for Ummat an-Nabi” so they fall under that khitaab “sayyid al-qawmi kahdimuh.” So you go to a rich person, who is rich. You don’t go to a poor one. You don’t go to a disco person in the day and at night you go to the wali to repent. He is rich, Allah.

He guides you and directs you what to do. He said Allah swt did not create a wali and not a nabi, knows what Allah will give His servants on Judgment Day. He will open it to Sayyidina Muhammad (s) on that day. He said that now, whatever the Prophet (s) is now getting he knows about what he is getting and he knows what he is giving to the Ummah but he doesn’t know what Allah will open to him on Judgment Day.

That is why the Prophet (s) said, "on Judgment Day I will go into sajda, and Allah opens to my heart what he never opened before.” That means in all time, whatever he is ascending and raising in knowledge double and double and double, it will be even more than that. And he asks three times and Allah gives and gives and gives, so that no one will be left out of heaven.

And this is part of Mawlana Shaykh’s suhbat and it is to tell us that no one knows what Allah will give on Judgment Day. Everyone is swimming on the beach on the shore and no one entered yet into what Allah will give. He is happy with his feet in the water he has only a little water.

People are going and passing and death is coming. What you see there is not what we see here. Allah’s Mercy is big. We are asking, “Ya Rabbee, make our grave a paradise of Your paradises; make our grave to be neighbor and to be under the feet of the Prophet (s); to be under the feet of Grandshaykh. To be under feet of Sayyidina Abu Bakr , under the feet of Sayyidina `Umar . To be under the feet of Sayyidina `Uthman (r); to be under the feet of Sayyidina `Ali (r). To be under the feet of all the Sahaba, of azwaaj an-Nabi, that is where we hope and we are asking for sake of Your beloved one and for the sake of Your awliyaullah, grant us to be at feet of Your Prophet, dunya and akhira.

Wa min Allah at-tawfeeq bi-hurmati 'l-Fatiha.
