(Translated from Arabic)
We, with our sins, we know that we cannot approach by even one step, but if we come to you, we think there is goodness in you that can bring us to the presence of the Beloved al-Mustafa (s) and bring us to the Presence of the Divine Reality, the Reality of Knowledges, the Reality of Lights, the Reality of the Message, to [inaudible].
انما بعثت لاتمم مكارم الاخلاق
I have been sent to perfect the best of conduct (your behavior and character). (Bazzaar)
And what are these manners? Are they the blameworthy manners or other than the blameworthy manners, or are they stronger than that? We do not know or comprehend. But you, in your center, you know that which we do not and you comprehend that which we do not. You comprehend from the Prophet’s Lights and from the Prophet’s Knowledge. We do not comprehend, but we wish that you make it manifest to us with these Manifestations and with these Lights, and with this love, and with this degree of highness, so that we are with you and with the Beloved al-Mustafa (s) and with those with whom Allah is pleased from among the Prophets, the Siddiqeen, the Martyrs, and the Pious Ones!
Kaaf. Haa. Yaa. `Ayn. Saad. [When Sayyidina Jibreel (a) brought you this Revelation, you said], “Kaaf. I know.” What do you know, O Rasoolullah? What do you know O Rasoolullah? You know `Uloom al-Awwaleen wa ‘l-Akhireen, you know all the Realities. So dress us with them to last until the Day of Resurrection! Dress us with the lights of Kaaf, The Sufficient, which suffices all the slaves, The Sufficient Who grants Rahmah to the slaves!
You are ar-Rahman. You are ar-Rahman, O Allah! You are ar-Rahman ar-Raheem who has Rahmah for everyone who does un-Islamic deeds.
Yaa Sayyidee! Make us firm in the Pure Shari`ah, and dress us in the dress of God-consciousness, dress us in the dress of forgiveness, dress us in the dress of love, and dress us from the dresses that Allah dressed you with, and that the Prophet dressed you with. Truly you have power through the power of the Prophet (s) and the Prophet has power through the power of Allah (swt). We wish to arrive with you wherever you arrive, and we wish to be with you where you are, but by ourselves with our bad deeds, it is impossible for us to arrive!
Yaa Rabbee, You said:
وَنَفْسٍ وَمَا سَوَّاهَا . فَأَلْهَمَهَا فُجُورَهَا وَتَقْوَاهَا
By the soul and the proportion and order given to it and its enlightenment as to its wrong and its right.
(Surat ash-Shams, 91:7-8)
So You made the nafs proportioned, you reformed it and you gave it to us, yet we destroyed it and we lost it. Yaa Rabbee, ‘by the soul and the proportion and order given to it and its enlightenment as to its wrong and its right’, inspire us to the right, inspire us to God-consciousness. Inspire us to God-consciousness!
وَاتَّقُواْ اللّهَ وَيُعَلِّمُكُمُ اللّهُ
Fear Allah (be conscious of God) and Allah will teach you. (Surat al-Baqarah, 2:282)
Be with those who are God-conscious, be with the pious ones. O Sayyidee! We want to be with them but open for us the doors, open the best door for us, the door of God-consciousness, the door of forgiveness and love with our Lord!
Yaa Rabbee, yaa Allah! From this place, from this maqaam, from the presence of Sayyidee Sultan al-Awliya, pour onto us from the Manifestations of the Lights of Your Kursiyy and Your Throne, O Allah! Yaa Rabbee, this Throne, this divine and rabbaanee Throne upon which Allah established Himself, and which poured knowledge onto the Prophet (s) when it ennobled him with the rising to Qaaba Qawsayn aw Adna. And the Kursiyy, is it a maqaam or is it a Kursiyy? What is the Kursiyy? Is it a normal seat or a seat from Paradise? Does it speak or does it not speak? For us, everything speaks as the Qur’an, Allah’s Speech, also speaks.
وَسِعَ كُرْسِيُّهُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضَ وَلاَ يَؤُودُهُ حِفْظُهُمَا وَهُوَ الْعَلِيُّ الْعَظِي
His Seat extends over the Heavens and the Earth and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them, for He is The Most High, The Supreme (in Glory). (Suratu 'l-Baqara, 2:255)
You extend over all things, yaa Rabbee, yaa Allah! Your Kursiyy extends over the Heavens and the Earth, the Kursiyy by itself. Dress us from the secret of the Lights of the Kursiyy, O Allah! Dress us from the Lights of Your Generosity, O Allah! Truly You are All Powerful Over All Things, and Most Able to Respond!
By the place of Sayyidee Sultan al-Awliya Shaykh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani, the resident of this maqaam, we stand with lowliness, we stand with love, we stand with du`a, we stand with supplications, we stand here and we do not stand at any other door! We are from the followers of Sayyidee Shaykh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani, may Allah forever raise his stations and aid us through his madad and raise us through his blessed breaths and pour upon us through him that which no eye has seen and no ear has heard and no heart has felt, and pour upon him from the Lights of the Rabbani Cave, the spiritual cave!
Allah (swt) said:
فَأْوُوا إِلَى الْكَهْفِ يَنشُرْ لَكُمْ رَبُّكُم مِّن رَّحمته ويُهَيِّئْ لَكُم مِّنْ أَمْرِكُم مِّرْفَقًا
Take yourselves to the Cave. Your Lord will shower His Mercies on you and dispose of your affair towards comfort and ease. (Surat al-Kahf, 18:16)
Yaa Rabbee, yaa Allah! We have run to Your Cave, and to the cave of Your Beloved al-Mustafa (s). Don’t turn us away from this cave! Bi-sirri Surati ‘l-Fatihah.
