The Purpose of Mawlana Shaykh Hisham's Khalwah

Sultan al-Awliya Maulana Shaykh Nazim Adil al-Haqqani

August 3, 2005 (28th Jumada II 1426)

Bismillahi ’r-Rahmani ’r-Raheem

There is permission. There is permission for seclusion and practice for 40 days. But we have not been ordered to assign anyone other than Shaykh Hisham, to enter into a complete seclusion for 40 days while leaving people and family and children to leave all dunya and country behind him completely and to welcome the service of Allah as much as possible.

In this year, they sent us a signal for the servant who is poor before Allah the Wealthy, to say Shaykh Nazim, who has the titles of al-Haqqani an-Naqshbandi, that I should commission Shaykh Hisham to enter into the 40 days seclusion in this year 1426 H. ( Aug 2005 ) to be cut off from dunya, children, family, country and work and to give his heart and to make himself available only for hisMost Glorified and Exalted Lord’s service. I was informed in this matter to commission one of the deputies of our Master, the Sultan of Saints and the teacher of the ummah Shaykh Abdullah ad-Daghestani (May Allah raise his station continuously) that I should commission Shaykh Hisham al-Kabbani, who is known by the titles as al-Haqqani, and who is also known as Madadu ’l-Haqq.

Allah is supporting him with a special support in order to sever disbelief from its roots and in order to open the way for truth, for the appointment of the true one and for protecting the people of truth and to over power The kingdom of Iblees, to cause its ruin.

I was given the signal-and the glad tiding that I should commission one of the deputies of Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah al-Fa’iz ad-Daghestani, Shaykh Hisham al-Kabbani ar-Rabbani al-Haqqani, to enter to seclude himself from the beginning of the month of Rajab al-Murrajab until the 10th of Sha`ban al-mu`azhzham. As much as possible in terms of the perfection of the seclusion of tawajjuh, of sulook and of qiyaam, As much as possible to be in the service of the Knowledge-dispensing King.

That is why I called him to come here to our presence in order for me to give him such an assignment and according to our insight. He will assume the position for which a promise was made on the day of the promise and the covenant, to be in the service of the Lord over servants. To quell disbelief (kufr), to invalidate it, to ruin it and to destroy The kingdom of Satan and abaalisah (plural-of Iblees).

May Allah reveal-him and support him with a special-support. Tomorrow since the time is near for the blessed month, the month of Rajab al-Murrajab 1426 H. With Allah's leave Shaykh Hisham will direct himself in obedience to what they have asked of us and what we have received that we should cast this assignment upon his shoulders to carry the responsibility... . Carry and they our honorable masters saw that this important task is only suitable for Shaykh Hisham al-Kabbani titled ar-Rabbani that he should make himself available to achieve and to apply, and to pave the way for the appearance of the “Owner of this Time” Sayyidina Mahdi (as). And he should govern with the governance he is given according to what is required of him right before the time of Sayyidina al-Mahdi (as), during his time and after his time. We wish that Allah will facilitate this matter and we are reminding him that everything which the servant does solely for his Lord, may He be glorified, even if it is difficult, is made easy. The one in which the ego takes its share in the action will make him tired and will be the cause for him not to receive support from the angelic realm to complete his service.

In summary he will intend after `Asr prayer, next Thursday fourth of the month, he will shower for welcoming the blessed month of Rajab al-Murrajjab and he will enter with the intention of subduing the ego and its evil from his self and from all the selves of the members of the ummah.

We want him to erase the evil of the egos from the servant and to free them up and to bring them to the service of (Allah according to the verse), “verily for Allah is the pure religion for the Lord.”

In his seclusion he will be busy with his master and my master Shaykh Abdullah, the teacher of the ummah. Then he will ascend in the company of Mawlana Shaykh to the service of the Prophet of the Last Days, the Beloved of Allah, our Master Muhammad (s) and he will then intend to raise the flag of peace between the east and the west.

(Allah Almighty said) “And every day He tends to a different matter.” Then he will supplicate and ask for the ummah (for the Lord to send) a Sultan as was indicated by the Lord of Glory when He said:

يَا مَعْشَرَ الْجِنِّ وَالْإِنسِ إِنِ اسْتَطَعْتُمْ أَن تَنفُذُوا مِنْ أَقْطَارِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ فَانفُذُوا لَا تَنفُذُونَ إِلَّا بِسُلْطَانٍ

"O people from human and from jinn. If you are able to penetrate from the regions of the heavens and the earth then do it, you cannot penetrate without a Sultan." (55:33)

There is no need to interpret the meaning of the word Sultan. Its meaning is apparent. If there was any difficulty in understanding a word we may then go to interpretation.

In this case everybody knows the meaning of the word Sultan or of illa bi-sultaan, “except through a Sultan.” Why then do they want to interpret and add things by saying it means “Sultan of knowledge”? Why? Why don't they say “Sultan of men” or “Sultan of the angelic realm”, or “Sultan of the earth”?

This (seclusion) must be (intended) for correcting what is happening on the face of the earth. This cannot be accomplished without a Sultan. (As the Almighty Lord said,) "Oh people from human and from jinn. If you are able to penetrate from the regions of the heavens and the earth then do it. You cannot penetrate without a Sultan."

The Sultan is the shadow of Allah on His earth. Whoever honors him, similarly Allah will honor him. And whoever humiliates him, Allah will abase. This is the service, the one who enters it must...What I mean is that the focus of this seclusion, is to ask for the Sultan, because the people are under such hardship that cannot be described, the likes of which have not been seen before. And the people are confused, they do not know how to get out of this difficulty. This difficulty is like being in a tunnel. There is no way out except through a Sultan.

"The Sultan is the shadow of God on earth." The people left him (the Sultan), and they followed the devils, and they fell into the trap. They do not know how to be delivered out from this doom or how to be delivered out from this difficulty.

This is the original purpose: only to ask for this matter, we don't want anything else.

For what other purpose is this seclusion? Oh my Lord I seek refuge with Allah. When the children of Israel said to their prophet send us a king so that we will struggle in Allah's way (fee sabeelillah) in order to teach the servants. He did not mention that send us. Never they said. When they said to their prophet send us.

When they face hardship, the children of Israel, they went to their prophet. Those devils who deny intercession through saints and prophet, this is the best example of intercession. Why did they go to their prophet. Why didn't they directly say "Oh our Lord, send a king to us."

They went to their prophet and asked him “ ask from your Lord.” “When they said to their prophet, ‘send us a king, your tongue is pure. You ask on our behalf from your Lord. We have made you our intercessor (waseelah). You ask from your Lord, to send us a king.’

Who owns the land and the people? The king. When they were righteous, the king was righteous. When they deviated, the king deviated. That is it... we are.

Every, every night, in the last third of the night, he will be in the station of intimate discourse with his Lord. Shaykh Hisham, when he finishes the awraad and the. Salawaat and awraad, he will be busy 24 hours. After the daily awraad at night, he should ask at the time of acceptance (of supplication) for Allah to send us a king, a king who will struggle in Allah's Way. His supplication will have the same effect as that of 124,000 saints engaged in supplication for 40 days.

They are asking the Lord of servants to send them a king. That is why we are sending Shaykh Hisham Effendi, whom we know very well. The others saints, we do not know them.

For this purpose he must enter, not any other thing. Other things are not important.

He must ask this only; it is the summary of the 40 days. And the real-purpose is this consultation with the Prophet (s).

He must be present, spiritually with the Prophet (s) , and ask ,"Oh ...Prophet of mercy, Oh... Prophet of mercy...,Oh Prophet of mercy, ask your Lord to send us a king so that we may struggle in Allah's way, Fee sabeelillah.

The one whom you gave us the glad tiding about," Oh Prophet of mercy, Ya Nabi ar-Rahmah, we are looking to see the results.

What I advised him regarding his physicality, is so that he doesn't become weak and for him to complete the service, so that he is not carrying too much or too little. The best of ways is the middle one.

I advised him regarding eating and drinking, whatever he does he does, and after that he asks "Oh our Lord, send us a king. Make it (the hardship), O Allah, as if it didn't exist. O our Lord erase their evil through your men of God. And it is for You. For You. For You, O my Lord. To sever, sever their roots:

فَقُطِعَ دَابِرُ الْقَوْمِ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُواْ وَالْحَمْدُ لِلّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ

‘‘severed were the roots of the oppressors and praise be to the Lord of the worlds.’” (6:45)

That is the main task. With which we are ordered, he will afterwards. Little by little receive openings in the seclusion. A little more and then more, will come to the seclusion.

This just now became apparent, the wisdom of this assignment of Shaykh Hisham in this year. The real purpose has just appeared with this step... now afterward he can do as he likes. Regarding this matter, in his task he will receive inspirations continuously to his heart and he will respond to them.

He will be like a tower for the airport. What do they call it? Traffic control... what? Beacon, minarah that is continuously turning, seeing in all directions. More inspirations will come, thoughts will also attack. But when thoughts attack, he makes ablution and prays two cycles. In this matter, it is up to him to read the Holy Qur'an; as much as possible to read more. He does not need to read other books, because inspirations will be coming about the intricate meanings (of the Qur'an). He has permission to write them down. And surely he is an ocean in knowing what coming from the unseen according to the signals we received, from the people of signals (vision).

We understood that the intensity of the hardship required for the appearance (of Mahdi [as]) has just happened. The people have reached their limits of hardship. From the intensity of oppression and darkness.

May Allah remove it from existences, the oppression, the transgression, the tyranny, the denial (of truth) through the blessings of the Prophet (s) and the sanctity of the al-Fatiha.

(Mawlana Shaykh reads al-Fatiha).

There is what you call it Hisham Effendi, continuously your heart will be in raabitah (connection) with us. A line running from our direction to you this is also important, the honorable connection (raabitatu shareefah).
