There is no going back, no way. Allah, Allah. Allah, Allah.
إِنَّ زَلْزَلَةَ السَّاعَةِ شَيْءٌ عَظِيمٌ
Inna zalzilati’s-sa`atu shayyun `azheem.
for the earthquake of the Hour (of Judgment) will be a thing terrible! (Surat al-Hajj, 22:1)
This gives us the meaning that zalzalatI’s-sa`ati, “the earthquake of the Last Day” will come before the start of Judgment Day. Slowly, slowly it (the earth quaking) will increase until it reaches perfection and then the whole world will be destroyed... and on Earth no trace will remain of mountains, human beings, animals, plants, seas, oceans! It will all turn to dust with the manifestation of Judgment Day!
If you look to the west you will see the east, because there will be nothing to block your view and no stone will remain. Everything will be destroyed and turned into dust! Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbaru ‘l-Akbar. Laa ilaaha illa-Llah! From the manifestation and glory of Judgment Day, yaa Lateef, yaa Lateef, yaa Lateef! amaan yaa Rabbee, tawbah yaa Rabbee! Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmaani ‘r-Raheem. (du`a)
Shaykh Adnan Effendi: All the planets, or only Earth?
It specifies only this world; the rest have their own creatures and they say without limit, “laa ilaaha illa-Llah Muhammadun Rasoolullah.” They have Judgment Day and the Account of the Day of Reckoning, and Heaven and Hell, as this is His Kingdom. Does only one world belong to the Creator? No, His Creation is limitless and continuous, which means from Pre-Eternal up to Eternal! That is an Attribute of the Creator, Allah jala wa `ala. From the Day of Pre-Eternity up to Day of Eternity it is ongoing: Creation appears and the fulk al-Mashoon, the Loaded Ship is filled with Creations. They have their own Judgment Day, their own Day of Reckoning/Reward, and particularly Heaven and Hell for each of them.
Allahu Akbar wa lillahi ‘l-hamd! Allah Almighty is the Greatest and He is the Greatest Creator! From the day of Pre-Eternity up to day of Eternity, He is the Greatest Creator and the Creation is continuous! Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbaru ‘l-Akbar. Lam yazal wala yazaal, “He is and will be as He always has been.” His Attributes are lam yazal wala yazaal. His Creations are continuous, never stopping, from pre-Eternity up to Eternity! Allah, Allah.
O Shaykh! We don’t know anything, not even about ourselves. Who are you? There is no answer. From where did you come? No answer. Where are you going? No answer. Two rijaalAllah met at a place, greeted each other and asked, “From where did you come?” He said, “From there.” To where are you going? “To there.” Allah, Allah. Where are you from? “From here.” From where you came? “From there.” To where are you going? “To there.”
It is continuous, from pre-Eternal up to Eternal! No one knows the reality of `Azaal, pre-Eternity, or Abaad, Eternity. No one ever understood except one, Sayyidi ‘l-Awwaleen wa ‘l-Akhireen (s)! He asked, “From which country did you come?” He said, “I came from here.” To where are you going? “I am going here.”
O Shaykh Adnan Effendi! It is astonishing! We cannot understand the reality of an atom. Our capacity to know cannot reach the reality of an atom: from where it came, to where it is going, what is its identity, what is written on it? There is a stamp on each atom, revealing its Creator. All atoms are sealed and stamped, according to whom they must return or to whom they belong. There is nothing in Creation that does not carry this Seal/Stamp, the Name of its Creator! It is impossible to come in existence without that Seal of the Creator and we cannot reach such realities, no! We cannot even come close to such realities. Allahu Akbar wa lillahi ‘l-hamd!
O Lord! Pardon us, forgive us, have mercy on us, and accept our repentance.
Hal min muddakirin, can anyone remember or reflect? Hal min muddakirin, if the servant is not given (a mind), how he will know the meaning of muddakir, “one who reflects.” Allahu Akbar wa lillahi ‘l-hamd!
All the worlds can drown, all of them can be put in an atom. When He says, “Put all the worlds in one atom,” the atom doesn’t become bigger or smaller, no! The world with its original size can be placed in the atom, which remains in its actual size, without the world becoming smaller or the atom becoming bigger! Subhaanahu wa Ta’ala!
Shaykh Adnan Effendi: Qadirun Muqtadir!
When Grandshaykh (q) taught me the meanings of the 99 Divine Names, he reached al-Muqtadir, “the Absolute Powerful.” and he stopped, because you can say something about the rest of the Names, but can you say something about al-Muqtadir? He is Muqtadir! What are the limits of His Absolute Power? There is no way to give meaning about it! I wrote the Names al-Muqtadir, “Absolute Power,” Qadir al-Muqtadir, “The Possessor of Power,” and Grandshaykh stopped. There is no way for anyone to understand the least level of `Ismullahi ‘l-`Azeem , the Great Divine Name of Allah (swt), al-Iqtidar, al-Muqtadir! Tawbah, yaa Rabbee!
