Ishfa` lana shafa`atan li-ummatik fi 'd-dunya wa 'l-akhira mina 'l-awwaleen wa 'l-akhireen.

A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem

(Mawlana sits)

Welcome to you, O Mankind. Welcome and blessings on you, those that they are taking a care for hearing, for learning and for granting all their praises and glorification according to their possibility. Allah grants you from His endless blessing oceans. First of all, He is asking that we must be clean. Tahir thiyabaka.

وَثِيَابَكَ فَطَهِّرْ

wa thiyaabaka fattahir

And keep thy garment free from stain (74:4)

First of all the Lord of Heavens is sending His Holy command through His most holiest one, to all prophets and their nations. First, He is asking that His deputies must be clean ones. If they are not cleaning themselves then it is impossible to be granted to those people who are not coming cleanly. Cleanliness is the first command from the beginning up to the end. Allah Almighty is never accepting a dirty one. He is saying you must be clean. No one can go to a king's presence with dirty clothes nor can one ask to be seen in a king's presence with an ugly appearance, yes. Everyone is asking to be the most clean and good looking one in that assembly. Therefore, we must try to be clean ones.

O our listeners, don't listen to me, but the master of this planet, according to His holy commands is asking us to be clean ones. We were in school, school boys and our school master was making our hands like this on the desk. When he was looking at our nails which were not clean. He was making like this (hits) and looking also at our ears if they were clean or not. Look,what about that you are you asking to go to the Heavenly Presence of the Lord of the Heavens? Asta`idhu billah.

وَاللّهُ يَدْعُو إِلَى دَارِ السَّلاَمِ

wallahu yad`oo ilaa daari 's-salaam

But Allah doth call to the Home of Peace. (10:25)

O our Salafi ulemas, why are you not telling people to look at their nails, to look at their cleanliness? Why are you not ordering and I am asking his Holiness the Pope if he is ordering Christians, Catholics or Orthodox or Protestant to be clean? Why are they not giving this command? A clean one is going to be well known when his dead body is put in the kaffan. You may understand if he is clean or not. If a bad smell is coming from his dead body that means he is not clean.

Once, when I was in Damascus the government was asking to build a wider road to make transportation easier, because there were so many cars and it was impossible to move the traffic. They were asking to take away some buildings to make a large way, a wider boulevard for traffic. On that way there was a saint, who had been lying in his tomb for 600 years. They were forcing people to give permission so that they could take a grand wali's body from his maqaam, to a further place. That grand wali wasn't happy to be taken from his first tomb to another place, for two reasons. One reason was he wasn't asking for his body to be shown. Some people are in their graves, and their flesh is finishing. Awliya are never like this. They are not a skeleton and they know this and are keen not to have their miraculous bodies be seen by anyone. The government was forcing that "we must take this."

Once before that event , perhaps 40 years ago, at the time of the French government, the High Commissioner in Syria was ordering that this tomb must be taken away. At night, Shaykh Hasan was coming to that one, the High Commissioner of the French government saying, "Are you saying that you must take my grave from here? Not you, not your country, the soldiers or all your people can come and take me from here!" In the morning, they were saying "No one is touching that one." Karaamatu 'l-awliya haqq, the miracles of saints are real. (an article of faith).

O Salafi ulema, you must believe this, karaamatu 'l-awliya haqq. You must say this. The miracles of awliya are a grant from Allah Almighty to them. You must believe that happened. The second time that French High Commissioner was leaving Syria in the hands of Syrians. Much more traffic was coming and they were asking the descendants of Shaykh Hasan Jibawi, hadrati `aala-Allahu ta`ala darajaatihi daa'iman, ya Sayyidee dastoor. Bi idhnAllah, you may hear. O Salafi `ulama you must believe in karaamatu 'l-awliya. If you are not believing I don't like to make anything for you but those who are appointed to keep the honor of anbiya and awliya may touch you. They are not sending you bombs or bullets, one small creature may touch you at night and by morning people are running and coming to take your dead body.

Fear Allah. Don't speak against awliya. Don't think that now you can find awliya, as before this time they were hiding themselves. Therefore, you ordered to destroy everything through Jannatu 'l-Mu`ala and Jannatu 'l-Baqee'. But now it is not the same time and you must fear. At least two jinns may take your body one from one ear and the other from the second ear and then they are putting you through a desert until you are passing away.

Fear Allah (swt) Allah Almighty, He is not looking at such a thing. But on behalf of the Seal of Prophets, there is another tajalli, a manifestation now, that may touch (you.) The manifesatations have just changed from the beginning of this Muharram. You are hearing that in Iran, there are so many troubles. Before, people were not doing anything and they were peaceful. But now, they are standing up and saying, "We are asking to do what we like, we are not people like our ancestors before us who were saying, 'O yes sir, we are not saying (anything) now.' If you are looking and seeing anything wrong, now we are coming in front of you. We are asking our rights. We are not accepting your system, we want the system that the Lord of the Heavens sent to us. We are a hundred million Iranians here not just one person asking to do as he likes. You must listen to us. We are not happy with you because you are not going on the right way and the Lord of Heavens is looking and seeing what you are doing."

You are only through two breaths one up, one down. Fear Allah, O our leaders. Come to shari'atullah, Allah Almighty's order. Now, therefore, time has just changed from the beginning of this Muharram, 1431. It is never going to be same circumstances as before. Everything is going to be changed according to the holy command of the heavens. Allahu akbar, Awliya. Allah, Allah, keep their respect.

O Wahabis, it is not easy now to take people away form visiting tombs of awliya and anbiya. Take care on this point. Be careful. This is a warning coming from the heavens. They may send to you a small creature and in the morning people are finding your body, no soul. Don't look to me. You must think, who is warning you? All prophets are coming as warners. Those who are taking care will be saved and those who are not taking care will be taken away. Don't say who is that one? I am nothing. You may understand the power that runs through my heart after a while, but it should be too late.

At the time, the descendants of Shaykh Hasan Jibawi, a grand wali, were coming and they were praying for three days and three nights, night and day, on his minaret.

Salaamun `alayka yaa RasoolAllah

Salaat was salaam `alayka yaa HabeebAllah,

As-salaat wa salaam `alayka yaa NabeeAllah

As-salaat as-salaam `alayka yaa Noor al-Arshillah.

Then sakeena coming. Satisfaction and peacefulness was coming after three days and three nights. His last descendant understood that Grandshaykh was giving permission to be taken away. I was there that day and they were opening and finding his body. Allah and His Rasool are witnesses, the awliya are witnesses, buddalah of Sham are witnesses. When they were looking at what was happening and they opened his grave, there was a beautiful smell coming. The jewelery that Prophet (s) in Madinah Munawarrah, pink roses, this smell coming. The people around doing like this. (smells)

They were taking the marble cover and coming this more and more. They were opening and looking. The Shaykh was sleeping like this, his body was as it was before and his beard just like my beard now. (laughs) He was lying and his descendant was putting his hand under his head, surrendering and saying, "O my grandfather, O waliullah, that is oolu 'l-amr, their order." His coffin was white, not gray, just like wheat which is fully grown, and no longer green, but yellow. Taking and putting in a new coffin and taking. This place that just people saying (smells),

People were just saying Allahumma salli `alaa Sayyidina Muhammad, Allahumma salli `alaa Sayyidina Muhammad. People were running to reach his coffin. Even with their fingers they couldn't reach. From this place up to the mosque it was two hours away. Crowds of Muslims were going around the coffin in crowds, and at `Asr time he was put in his new maqaam.

I was living there at that time, and after ten days, on Jabal Qasiyoon in the maidan in Damascus, I was taking something for a needy family. I was passing and some children came running after me with soil in their hands, bringing it, saying, "O Shaykh, smell, smell." I was smelling and there was just the perfume of rose. They were bringing it after 10 days from where he had been lying for 500 years. And SubhaanAllah, I am a witness. Inshaa-Allah, I am not lying to you, that is a clean one.

There are so many people that are dirty ones. I was burying some of them. When you are standing for praying, their dirty smell is coming. We were putting them in the grave, people were quickly covering the dirty smell. I was also witness. So many times I was burying people and when a dirty smell was coming, I am asking from where? It was coming from that grave, and that dirtiness, and dirty smell is not finishing. For some of them it is for 40 days, for some of them 40 years.

Look, O `ulama, you must teach people, the first command of Allah Almighty is to clean yourself and come. "First ablution and then come to Me." But now, people are not thinking on it and all `ulama or particularly doctors, they are never taking any care to wake people up. Mostly they are under the command of governments. No, governments must listen and obey real `ulama. That is the holy command and they are not doing and punishment is running on them.

O people, try to be clean. The first command of Allah Almighty is, "Be clean and come to Me clean. Come to My Divine Presence clean and you should be saved. Those who are dirty with dunya, they are thrown away from Divine Presence."

O people, it is a very important command that they are making me speak on. Dirtiness is making the biggest trouble for Mankind now because they are not clean. All trouble from east to west and from north to south because they are dirty ones. Be clean ones. Today you are here. Tomorrow you are not. Be clean. May Allah forgive us.

O people, O our Lord for the honor of this holy night from Shahr Muharram u'l-Haraam, for the honor of the most beloved one in Your Presence, forgive us and bless us and send us someone that may take us from dirtiness to cleanliness. O our Lord, send us someone who is going to destroy the Kingdom of Shaytan and Shaytans.
