Servants Who Kept Their Covenant with Allah

Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani

Fenton, Michigan USA, Saturday, April 18, 2020

I'm thankful for all those people who helped me through this epidemic because we had some issues with the epidemic. Ahlu 's-Sunnah wa'l-Jama`ah want what is best for the Ummah and for all of humanity.

Alhamdulillah I'm back at my home and trying to do what I can do of things that no one touched on from `aja`ib ad- dunya wa gharaa'ibuha, wonders and astonishing things of this worldly life.

If we learn their questions and their communication in dunya through a special path which only the physicists know indeed, this is a gift from Allah.

Don't belittle your young ones and don't be arrogant with your families.

Our master `Abdul-Khaliq al-Ghujdawani, may Allah be pleased with him and please him was always in khalwa, seclusion. One day he wanted to go to a special masjid in his town, atop the farthest end of the mountain. He arranged his affairs, and wore his best clothes for Friday prayers.

He was also highly honored and met with some Awliya. He was one of those who carried Sultan of Dhikr in his time. Among his people are those who repented through him. He walked in the path remembering Allah.

His wife asked him: "Where are you going?"

He said: "I'm going to Friday prayers."

She said: "Aren't you ashamed to go without asking my permission?"

Her question really meant: "Aren't you ashamed to leave dunya in the hands of Iblis?"

She said: "Look up here!" He looked, and she threw the bucket of dirty laundry with all its filthy water on him.

He did not open his mouth. He continued walking to the masjid. There, he met other problems, but still he did not speak to anyone. He entered the masjid with that filth all over him.

What is meant here by filth (najasa) is the filth of people and from his own wife, who is one of the people. Her recompense is that she said to him: "Get out of here, I don't want to see you, O cursed one." This is the condition of the Ummah.

He returned to his house, took a fresh shower and dressed again in the clothes of Jumu`ah. This means that he carried the filth of the people and did not ask who spoke of guidance and who said what. And he did not say anything to his wife that she would not like.

He returned home, took a shower and prepared himself for the khutba, sermon. When a wali is zealous for suhba, it means they are upset.

He is from the highest ranking saints and the one who is guarding the gate of the Ka`ba. He used to remember Allah (swt) underwater in a well, out of love for Dhikr and so that all of it is written for the Ummah. This is the condition of the Shaykh `Abdul-Khaliq al-Ghudjawani.

They have said recently that filth comes out from this coronavirus. This filth is what transfers it.

That is why it has to be recorded in books that it is dangerous. It is not inanimate, rather it is actively dangerous.

We are upon the ambition of saintly men.

همة الرجال تقلع الجبال

himmat ar-rijal taqla`ul-jibaal

The lofty ambition of Manly folk moves mountains. (Kashf al-Khafa, da`eef)

علو الهمة من الإيمان

wa `uloow al-himmata min al-imaan.

Having a lofty ambition is from faith. (a renowned saying)

As we have mentioned in many previous sohbas, every Monday, Thursday and Friday many Awliya gathered with him [`Abdul-Khaliq al-Ghudjawani], then they would disperse and each of them would go home.

Look, they emptied Masjid al-Haram and Masjid al-Nabawi. They closed everything. Meanwhile, here is Trump, who has done a great deed by saying that women can wear a scarf. This will be recorded by history for them. It will be mentioned on the minbars (prayer pulpits), especially the president of the USA, that they should be left alone and brought forth because they carried the name of the Prophet (s) by carrying the burdens of the scarf.

This is from one side. However from another side, they created this microbe and it backfired on them. They came up and they setup that microbial virus and it backfired on them.

And people adorned themselves with Dhikrullah, and remembered Allah and that is why the number [of deceased] came down. Sayyidina Khalid al-Baghdadi (q) carried the hardship when he came back from India to Sham and spread the tariqah, spiritual path, and thanks to Allah the doors were opened wide before them from the blessings of the spiritual path.

He was of the righteous people, of the spiritual masters of the Path, he had 38 or 39 paths. So blessed are we, the people of tariqas, spiritual paths, because of you the Ummah was delivered and succeeded in destroying this viral microbe.

Just as happened with Sayyidina Khalid al-Baghdadi (q) in the year 1850 or so. He too carried on behalf of his brethren and he said to his brethren, "Take my place I am leaving to the Divine Presence." They wept greatly until they received the most faithful good advice and they gave the most faithful good advice. And they destroyed the plague and they were destroyed by it. Rather what destroyed them was love of Allah and love of the Prophet (s). And anything that has in it love of the Prophet (s) then Divine Love shall be in the hearts of such servants.

I came today especially for a soul which has in it a question and an answer. And that is a decision that is taken from the Awliya from first, second, third, fourth, fifth, seventh to the ninth of them, something that benefits the whole Ummah.We are on their footsteps and we neither change in ourselves nor do we change in anything they entrust us with.

Alhamdulillah, all praise and thanks to Allah and all kinds of blessings to the Blessed friends.

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله تعلى و بركاته

salam `alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu.

Peace be upon you and Allah, the Exalted's Mercy and Blessings.

Beware of the movement of the microbial illness which struck Sayyidina Khalid al-Baghdadi in the heights of Jabal Qasyoun.Do not enter into politics and this is from politics.

وعن أبي يوسف عبد الله بن سلام رضي الله عنه قال‏:‏ سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول‏:‏ ‏ "‏يا أيها الناس أفشوا السلام، وأطعموا الطعام، وصلوا الأرحام وصلوا والناس نيام، تدخلوا الجنة بسلام‏"

The Prophet of Allah (s) said, "O people, exchange greetings of peace (salam), feed people, strengthen the ties of kinship, and be in prayer when others are asleep, you will enter Jannah in peace." (Tirmidhi from `Abd Allah bin Salam).

Insha Allah give food, every person loves food. Prophet (s) knows the issues of the Ummah to uplift their spirits.

Subhanallah Sayyidina Khalid al-Baghdadi (q). There is in Iraq a mosque built by the followers of Sayyidina Khalid al-Baghdadi (of the Khani family) and we are marching with them. I am very well and I thank everyone asking about my health, alhamdulillah.

We give salam to each of you one by one and in sha Allah we will visit you in the nearest possible time. We make du`a for you and you make du`a for us.
