The Difference Between Worship and Respect

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

11 October 2009 Lefke, Cyprus

(Mawlana Shaykh standing)

O our Lord! Forgive us and we are saying also a`oodhoo billahi min ash Shaytani 'r-rajeem, running away from bad sounds, from Satan and its tricks and traps. Keep ourselves. I am ashaming to ask this from Your Heavenly Presence. I may ask from master of this world. O our master, Qutb az-Zaman, who looking after everything on this Earth, on this planet, to be much more honored by the intercession of the Seal of Prophets (s).

(Mawlana sits)

And I am saying Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. Biggest honor that whole prophets were asking for them, Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem forever. Allah Almighty just granted that much more honor name for Ummati Muhammad (s). And we are saying so easily Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. Endless honor, endless lightening coming from Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem.

O People! Don't lose your chance to say more and more and more Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. That is a countless treasure for people, for creation. And now we are saying a` udhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. And as a deeply adab, good manners, top point, we are saying, asking from that one who is the master of this Earth (s). What do you think, O people, about this world? You are thinking that the Lord of Heavens has only one Earth? If He has only one Earth and trying to keep it, it is not our Lord's Divinely Absolute Powers appearance.

O People! As-salaamu `alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh! Don't be angry with me, no! I am such a weak one. Everyday such a person coming to a coffee shop and people surrounding that one, because he speaking so many things they like to hear from him and they should be happy. Our Grandshaykh, Allah blessings him with endless Glory Oceans, making such a weak servant to sit here and to address to whole people through east and west. I don't think that anyone preparing himself when he is going to coffee shop what I am going to speak, no. What coming I may speak and I am here in a little bit different position because it is not a coffee shop or it is not a coffee shop's meeting, no! We are a handful of people coming and listening and technology of our most proud ones...taking these words through east and west and from north to south.

We are saying, O my Lord! We are endlessly thankful to You for making technology under our command to reach a person from any point of this world to east, up to west. That is a grant from Allah Almighty; if He is not opening no one can find such a thing, but He is saying that, "So many things we are making them on Earth under your (....sound cut...). It is an electricity, it is an appearance from heavenly Power Oceans, such an atom and this atom preparing everything on Earth for the benefit of the children of Adam, giving much more chance for understanding, but they using it for their egoistic purposes. Not using it to find ...the beginning of that power, how appeared. It was in secret Oceans of Power from the Lord's heavenly oceans. Heaven's oceans. Subhaanallah!

Yes, they are making me to speak on such a points that people never hearing it before, and the Lord of Heavens asking to give much more knowledge for His deputies whom they are the children of Adam. He is asking and giving. And it is such a thing that we are speaking on it, so strange! And people never thinking on it, one, line under it, infinity. What is its equal? Say your language, what is going one over infinity? What is it equal? Say! ZERO. One atom, may be changeable up to be zero and infinity with zero, how going to be one? One, if you are dividing that one through infinity, going to be zero, but when you are making one divided by two, it is going to be half or, you may say two. If you are dividing it by two, it is going to be two. That means if you are taking one dividing into infinity, going to be zero. How many zeros if you are calculating? Going to be unknown, finished! One under one, dividing into two going to be half, and two half going to be one! But here one, if divided by infinity going to be zero! How zero going to adding to infinity and becoming something? That means everything in front of one, nothing! Nothing in existence except ONE. No anything else! That is tawheed, to understand the Unity of the Lord of Heavens!

Everything in existence including heavenly oceans, they are finally coming to be... .(Mawlana addresses a mureed who is falling asleep.) Open your eyes, don’t sleep! How many times I am looking if someone making like this in our association, power cutting. Therefore, reminding our listeners, don't be heedless or sleepy here, no! Open your eyes and give a value what we are saying; listen!!!

To understand some secrets of your being, this world's showing and proving to whole mindly creatures that you are on the point of zero! You can't be with One! One never accepting zero! But HE making zero, asking to show from His Endless Power Appearances. Don't think you are something. You are nothing! As, O our listeners, your level is for understanding such things preliminary, therefore they are making me to shout and to say something to make your understanding, to open, but you can't understand; impossible for zero to understand maahiya, identity, of ONE.

I am asking professors of mathematics, what is your opinion if one divided to infinity coming only zero? You may putting one divided to four, coming to quarter, but divide it, coming to be zero. Zero means nothing. Standing up only one. People they are not understanding because they are so hard-head people!! Therefore, we are saying if you are making (touching) our heads on the walls of Prophet's holy grave, holy maqaam, they are saying, "Nooo, you are making shirk." What shirk? Who can be partner to One? No one! But people they are so ignorant ones. And I am saying if that is shirk, what about if you are putting your hands on Ka'bah-e-Mu'azzam, the Holy House of the Lord? What is the difference between this and that? That is material, this is material. Why this is going to be acceptable, but you never going to be saying, "Don't touch House of the Lord." But when you are coming to Holy Prophet’s maqaam, they are coming and rushing on people saying, "Don't put your hands on it." Why? This is material, that is material. Do you think that the House of the Lord, He is in it? In it or out of it? What do you think, O Salafi people? What you are saying?

They are so jealous people that they never like Sayyidina Muhammad (s). (Mawlana stands) I am standing up on his Holy Name! Yes, for Ka'bah okay, but for rasulu'th-thaqalayn it is haraam???? Who mentioned? Allah Almighty is warning:

وَلاَ تَقُولُواْ لِمَا تَصِفُ أَلْسِنَتُكُمُ الْكَذِبَ هَـذَا حَلاَلٌ وَهَـذَا حَرَامٌ لِّتَفْتَرُواْ عَلَى اللّهِ الْكَذِبَ إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَفْتَرُونَ عَلَى اللّهِ الْكَذِبَ لاَ يُفْلِحُونَ

Wa laa taqooloo limaa tasifu al-sinatukumu 'l-kadhiba haadha halaalun wa haadha haraamun li-taftaroo `ala Allahi al-kadhiba inna alladheena yaftaroona `ala Allahi 'l-kadhiba laa yuflihoon.

But say not - for any false thing that your tongues may put forth,- "This is lawful, and this is forbidden," so as to ascribe false things to Allah. For those who ascribe false things to Allah, will never prosper.(16:116)

don't make haraam what is halaal, haadha haraamun wa haadha halaalun. It is mentioned in Holy Qur'an and those people their language is Arabic, but they are not saying the Lord's understanding. To touch Ka'bah is halal, (but you say) to touch Prophet's windows or gates of his maqaam is haraam? Which verse giving that authority, to make much more haraam, to make haraam as you like? And Prophet (s) is saying:

الحلال بين والحرام بين

al-haraamu bayyinu wa 'l-halaalu bayyin, (what is forbidden is clear and what is permitted is clear).

Where is that bayyinun that (says) don't touch the Prophet's windows? If Prophet is saying al-haraamu bayyinu, where it is? Show us your proof, haatoo burhaanakum! Allah saying don't teach people to say that Ka'ba halaal to touch and Habeebullah's maqaam to touch is haraam. What is your proof? And they are saying as (if) Rasul (s) (is) saying al-halaalu bayyin. Through which book you are making this halaal or haraam?? Tell me! They may say, or I may say to them, O Salafi people! You are thinking that when we are saying Baytullah," He needs to have a house to be in it? How you are saying?? Baytullah, they are saying Allah in it, or out of it? How you are saying this? What do you think if you are making salaam to Ka`ba, four walls Allahu akbar, and you are turning, what is your proof? Allah in it or out? Where He is? You can say for Allah's maqaam standing and I am asking one Salafi person, O Salafi `alim, what do you think?

I am asking so many people a question and they never giving an answer to make my heart tumaaneena, satisfied. "What is your question, O bid`ah Shaykh?" (Mawlana laughing) If I am making bid`ah, what you shall be? I am asking you to answer me, if I am making bid`ah, Allah is going to make judgment for me, but I am asking to you, that it is Baytullah, so is Allah in it or out of it, or is Baytullah is empty? If it is empty, for what we are making this salam, Allahu akbar? Sayyidina `Ibrahim built it; how it is going to be? If you are saying Allahu akbar, to Whom we are saying? Why we are not turning our faces to other parts of Haram Shareef and to say Allahu akbar, only we are coming and saying for Ka`ba, Allahu akbar? What is your proof? Allah imprisoning that Ka`ba? If it is empty, for what we are saying Allahu akbar? Say to me!

(Some are saying,) "O Shaykh, you are saying something against Shari`at Allah!" No! I am asking you is the Lord in it or out it? If you are saying Allah is in the Ka`ba, the house of the Lord, Who is LORD? How, if He is not in it, for what we are running to Ka`ba? We may build four walls and may run around in it, may be, may be! But why you are intiqaam, objecting if mu'mins coming to their prophet's peaceful and holy place where he (s) is buried, why you are saying, "Don't touch, that is shirk"? What does it mean, shirk? Are we making idols there and bowing to them? But people they are so ignorant ones, they are not understanding hikmah, wisdom, and I was asking him and he was saying, "No, because it is house of the Lord that can't be that house empty." Who is in it? Allah is in it?

"No no, no, no, no, no, can't be!"

(Mawlana stands) Do you think that Holy Prophet (s) of His Divinely Presence, Sayyidina Muhammad (s) is in it?

"No, that is shirk; it is empty."

How you are saying this? But no-mind people are trying to make people to reach kufr and to be thrown into Hells! They are wrong ones, they are wrong ones! They cannot prove themselves, declaring people kaafir (unbeliever) or mushrik (idol worshipper) when they are visiting tomb of Holy Prophet (s).

They are making east to west and from west to east, declaring, "You are kafir, you are mushrik." What is that? Who giving to you that authority to make people kaafir or mushrik ?! It is according to your nonsense ideas? Sahaba, after Prophet's traveling, rising or reaching to his Lord's Divinely Presence, Sahaba did not visit his tomb or they are never coming and saying as-salaatu wa 's-salaam? At the time of Sahaba it was halaal and you are coming after Sahaba 1300 years and you are making haraam? If anyone coming to holy tomb of Prophet (s) and saying as-salaatu wa 's-salam, you are saying they are mushrik? Don't speak! Something coming to your tongue and you may die!

Because Rasoolullah (s) had been sent as basheeran wa nadheera and his inheritors are also basheeran wa nadheera, warners and givers of good tidings, all of them! Sometimes that is granted to a very weak one, like myself. I am weakest one through Mankind, but to be nadheer sometimes had been granted to weakest servant. Yawm al 'azifati, Day of Warning from Prophet to his inheritors. But (Wahabis) never accepting except themselves. No, they are not going to be inheritors for Rasul, but if you are insisting you are going to be inheritors for Shaytan! Allah orders everyone to bow to Adam, Allah looking and ordering, so how you are saying that sajdah is haraam? Through whole Shari’ah haraam, but if Allah is ordering (it becomes) halaal. Therefore, whole angels bowing to Adam in Divinely Presence! Allah ordering to angels to bow to Adam. Why He is not saying, "Bow to Me"? No, bow to Adam.

Yaa Rabbee! You are so great and mighty, no one can understand Your greatness. O our Lord! YOU, YOU, YOU!

O People! Angels making sajdah, is Allah’s order munkar, wrong? Why not saying to Allah, "Why You make Adam and ordering me to make sajdah to him?"

If to Adam we can bow, if you are going to Sayyidina Muhammad, you are going to be kaafir? HAASHA!

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

`Ala maa yureed, as He likes He can order. As we are saying that is Baytullah (Allah's House), that is Habeebullah (Allah's Beloved)! And Habeebullah is more valuable that Ibrahim's building. This is Baytullah, that is Habeebullah! Which one is more precious in Divinely Presence, that building or Habeebullah? If you are saying Ka`batullah then let Ka`batullah come on Day of Judgment and make intercession! You are kissing Hajjatul Aswad (the Black Stone), but if you are kissing someone’s hand for respect then are going to be kaafir? What is that nonsense ideas and fitna through Muslims!!! Divine revenge quickly comes on them. It is halal to kiss a piece of stone because it is from heavens coming. Also, the Seal of Prophets (s) from where coming? From under the Earth coming, or coming from up??!!But no-mind Salafi people, they are asking to make whole Muslims like their thinking, and they are on baatil, falsehood.

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

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Kareem Allah

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Subhan Allah

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Sultan Allah

O People! This is an opening from heavenly ones' knowledge stream, like my hairs, like this coming through my heart to address to whole nations. If accepting, they are mu'mins; if not accepting, they should be like Shaytan when he was not accepting holy command of Allah. We are fearing from Allah, to do that or to be like Shaytan. Na`oodhoo billah! O People! Open your minds, open your hearts and try to learn more and more and more and more! Allah jalla Jalaaluhu, if seven seas going to be ink, never ending your Lord's words or speech or knowledge. Think on it! Don't imprison your Lord in a short distance; don't put the Lord's most beloved servant to be imprisoned according to your no-valuable understanding!

We are Ahl as-Sunnah wa 'l-Jama`ah. Who is making like this, like that falling down! Keep straight way, yes. But adaban for Rasul, they are not coming to call with such a no-mind people in Prophet's holy presence, yes. But they are making people to be angry with them and to shout and it is haram in presence of the Seal of Prophets (s) to make your sound highly (loud). It is haraam and we are saying nothing. Yaa Rasoolallah! Tyrant's soldiers giving trouble to us; therefore, our love and deepest respect, for you from our hearts to your heavenly presence.

May Allah gives him (s) much more honor! And we are asking to be sent quickly to what he was giving, good tidings about that one Mahdi (a) to take revenge on real Muslims from wrong people! O our Lord, You know! Forgive us. If I am wrong, forgive me; if they are wrong and they are insisting through their wrong ideas, punish them. May be taken away, O my Lord!
