Muslim `Ulama Must Clarify the Personality of Sayyidina Muhammad (s) for the World

Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

21 January 2010 Lefke, Cyprus

(Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

Dastoor Yaa Sayyidee, madad Yaa Sultanu ‘ l-Awliyaa, madad. Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, la ilaaha illa-Llah, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, wa lillahi ‘l-hamd! All praising and glory, only for You, O our Lord, our Creator. You are our Creator and everything is under Your command. Everything is happening as You like. You are only One Lord, no other One. Forgive us!

We are asking countless glorifying, honor and praising for Your most glorified servant, Sayyidina Muhammad (s), in spite of Shaytan and his followers. Alfu salaat, alfu salaam `alayka, Yaa Sayyidi ‘l-awwaleen wa’l-aakhireen, Yaa Sayyidina, Yaa Muhammad (s). Ishfa` lana. We are asking your intercession, to stand up and declare your greatness and glory; that you are our Lord’s representative from pre-Eternal up to Eternal. And we are giving our salutes and asking more honor for the holy ones who are representing the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s), (Mawlana stands) and all prophets, and their followers and representatives. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

We are weak ones, but sometimes weak ones are making people to fear, as now pig flu, an unknown illness, has just spread through the east and west. It may be the most dangerous one or it may be the weakest one; according to the high command that is granted for this planet, to be under his (the qutb’s) control. We are asking forgiveness, if we say Allah is sending that pig flu, haasha, astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah. Countlessly, haasha, thumma kallaa. Allah Almighty is the Most Glorified and Most Praised One and His Majesty is endless, from pre-Eternal up to Eternal. I am ashaming and asking forgiveness to say that pig flu is coming from Allah! Astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah! It doesn’t matter if we may say an ant is the reason that the pig flu is coming, but we must be ashamed to say it is from Allah. Astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah, countlessly, endlessly!

O People! Keep good manners for your Lord. Try to give your most high respect to your Creator. How can it be if you are saying a majestic king or emperor is sending pigs to people? Be ashamed, O People! When you are saying something you must balance it, don’t speak without balance. We are saying a` oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani ‘r-rajeem. Shaytan is the fountain of every bad thing that is coming. We can’t say a king is sending pigs to people. A king can’t be a king, but a shepherd of pigs.

O People! Try to be good-mannered ones towards your Creator, the Lord of all Creation from pre-Eternal up to Eternal, and say a` oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani ‘r-rajeem. Every wrong thing that comes from Shaytan, makes people’s value to be the lowest, no other level is below it. Shaytan is making people to be on the lowest level. And our Creator, our Lord, Allah Almighty is asking to take them from the lowest level to the highest. Allah Almighty our Creator asks to do this, and Shaytan, in spite of asking, makes Mankind under the lowest level.

Dastoor Yaa Sayyidee, Yaa Sultanu ‘l-Awliyaa. It is a holy night. They are sending us something important and we are saying, bismillahi ‘r-Rahmaani ‘r-Raheem, asking to begin some pages of heavenly knowledge that are granted to heavenly people. The highest level that any creature may reach is only for the Seal of Prophets, pbuh, not for anyone else. The Lord of Heavens, subhaanahu wa ta` ala, is asking to make the nation of the Seal of Prophets, the nation of Sayyidina Muhammad (s), to reach the highest level. But Shaytan is asking to make Mankind the lowest level; under this there is no other level. It is through darkness. He is asking to bring people with their technology, to a black hole, all of them there. And Allah Almighty is calling them through His Divine Presence. There is no other level over this station; it is ghayah, the final point any creature may reach. No one may be on it, only one, Sayyidina Muhammad (s). (Mawlana stands) On the Night Journey, only he passed up (to that level). Even the archangel Jibreel (a) could not pass. The Prophet (s), our Creator’s most honored and glorified one, had been granted that, the Sidrat al-Muntahaa.

O Salafi `ulama, where are you? You are not speaking such things. Your minds are only on “shirk, bid`a, haraam, kufr.” Leave that dirtiness and come! Try to learn about the Seal of Prophets (s). Come and make an inquiry about our Prophet, the Seal of Prophets (s). Try to make more clear the personality of the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s). (Mawlana stands) Why are you not doing that? Every day we are hearing about bid`a, shirk, kufr. As long as you are not looking at such a fine subject, this whip is coming on your head every night! You are `ulama; your mission is only to make clear, as much as possible, the personality of the Seal of Prophets, Habeebullah! You must try to make his personality much more clear for all nations and for all Muslims. Don’t make that one to be as you, as me or as him! No! He is the representative of the Lord of Heavens!

Have you ever seen a majestic king making a declaration for people under his command? Do you think that king must come to a big square and speak to people? It is not his honor. A king’s level is only for one! If at his level, you can find 100 or 99 kings, then they may make declarations to each other. If his declaration is not for kings but for common people, he is their king and there is no need for him to go to Russell Square or Victoria Square to make his declaration.

“Don’t shout like this,” Their ears are going to be a little bit... I am looking, how they are going to be seen. They brought me tonight a good eyeglass. I may see from far away with such an antique one. (Mawlana uses a monocle.) It is very clear with this. I am looking, how the Salafi `ulama are doing. (laughter) Some of them are very angry, some of them making like this, some of them making like that. You must listen, from east to west.

“O my darling, someone bringing from flea market this, to look. Flea market people in the religion.”

“Yes, sir, they are happy, every night we are listening, not every night, every night a new subject coming, but sometimes they are using new artillery for bombarding castles of batil (falsehood) in Islam, and out of Islam.”

“Thank you, sir.”

I am bringing this for Salafi `ulama because with this I can see, but without it I can’t. Some are angry, but don’t be angry because you must see Allah Almighty’s most honored one’s personality. Therefore, I am bringing this. If you are not looking and seeing here and there, what are you going to do on the Day of Resurrection? The Lord of Sayyidina Muhammad (s) (Mawlana stands) is showing all nations about His most beloved one, His representative’s honor! That is your mission, nothing else!

In our days, the most important thing for all `ulama, Salafi or non-Salafi: you are not to occupy yourself with book writing or takhreeju 'l-ahadeeth, holy prophet’s holy words, to make into books; that is not important. First, people must understand who is that one; look what he brought from the Lord of Heavens. Give us his personality. People look first to hadith, always. That is important from east to west, because we are believers and claiming something: the Lord of Heavens, the holy books, angels and heavenly representatives. The chief of Christianity, the pope or bishops, the patriarchy are saying, “We understand what are you saying but we need to understand about the personality of that one. Who is Muhammad? (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Give us his personality so that we can follow him. Make it clear.” But, the Salafi `ulama are saying, “They are not taking care.”

وَقُلِ الْحَقُّ مِن رَّبِّكُمْ فَمَن شَاء فَلْيُؤْمِن وَمَن شَاء فَلْيَكْفُرْ

(Faquli ‘l-haqqu min rabbikum) faman sha’a fa 'lyu’min wa man sha’a fa 'lyakfur

Say, “The truth is from your Lord.” Let him who will, believe, and let him who will, reject (it). (18:29)

Those are holy words of Allah Almighty who was finally sending to all nations, the Seal of Prophets (s) and was sending evidence with him to his nation, to the people of the tribe of Quraysh. They were understanding what he was reciting to them in the name of the Holy Qur’an and they were saying, “So beautiful, so majestic.” But we are not believing and (those that don’t), their level is under the level of cockroaches. Therefore, the Lord of Heavens was saying to His most beloved one, “Leave those cockroaches, they are under the level of cockroaches. If they are not believing and running away, say to them, ‘O my tribe, O all of Mankind, from my day up to the end of the world, I am bringing to you such evidences! I am Heaven’s Last Messenger, warning you that the Day of Resurrection and the Day of Judgment are coming,’ Say to them and leave them!”

But now everything is changing and change coming and now people are claiming that it is the time of “positive knowledge”. “We are asking something; this is gold, if you can bring us proof that we may say that that is as you said.” Positive knowledge is asking to touch everything either with their eyes or with their ears or with their hands or with their thinking. They are asking, “We must look, we must see, we must touch, we must be satisfied.”

Now fifteen centuries have passed from the time of the Seal of Prophets (s) and the whole world is just falling into endless crisis, miseries, problems and trouble. Now people are asking for something, like a man falling into the ocean is asking for something to catch onto, to save him from the ocean. Now Mankind is in a deep crisis and endless troubles and disturbances, and saying, “We have money and technology but we don’t have rest. Day-by-day we are coming down through badness. There is tons of electricity but it is not giving us any lights. How are we going to save ourselves?”

O Salafi `ulama, now is the time to declare to all nations, “O People! Come and follow us. We follow the Seal of Prophets (s) who had been sent as all other prophets had been sent. Hear and listen and obey.” Therefore, beginning from the pope and the heads of other religious groups, the Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, Jewish, Hindu and Buddhist, all nations are saying, “What can we do? How can we save ourselves? We have reached the top of civilization and we have all kinds of possibilities through technology, but our hearts are never in satisfaction. We are asking something else beyond technology. Technology is a greater curse on people. As much as we have new technology it is going to be a heavy burden on ourselves; therefore, we are looking through the east and west.”

Therefore, how to save us? O Salafi, Azhari, Shams, Turkish, Pakistani, Iraqi and Irani ` ulama, you must come together and say, “This is waseeyah, heavenly advice, the last advice for all nations.” How can they bring that project to non-Muslims? Muslims are not hearing and not obeying the orders of the Holy Qur’an. One is going east and one is going west. They are going in different directions; 72 different thinkings. Islam is not coming through your minds, it is not a mind-production; Islam is coming from heavenly sources!

Materialist or naturalist people are saying that rain is coming from the sea and the clouds are sending it. That is the biggest lie, and they are the biggest liars. If taking from the oceans, is it not going to be less, less, less, and the oceans going to be dry? Leave that. If you are saying these clouds are carrying hundreds and thousands of tons of water from the oceans, how can it be? These huge amounts? They say to me, 80 million tons of snow came these past years, in three days, in New York. 80 millions tons, how is it carried? How is it coming down? O People! Use your minds; say “Allah is sending.” Don’t follow Shaytan. You will be punished! May Allah forgives us.

All nations now are searching and asking, “How are we going to be saved from such a difficult position that ever happened in the history of Mankind? And we were thinking everything is under our control, but we are looking and seeing that we are in such a bad situation. Everyone is asking to kill everyone else.” And we are saying, is this civilization? We are ashamed to say. Therefore, the chiefs of all religions, the Catholics, Protestants, Anglicans, Orthodox Eastern Church, Western Church; they are through their different ways. For what? What happened? And the Jewish people are also through different parties, and Muslims are separated also. For what? How can we save ourselves, our nations and our followers? How are we going to be in the Divine Presence on the Day of Judgment? How are we going to answer our Lord? If He is inquiring of us, what will we reply? We are confused!

Therefore, now it is the time to present Islam to all nations. That is real Islam. They may ask who is bringing that real Islam to you? If you say, “That one was an orphan through unknown deserts and he was born around the Holy Ka`aba, House of the Lord,” and that is his specialty, first of all. Among all other prophets he was the only one born near the Holy Ka`aba, the House of the Lord; no other prophet was born near the House of Lord, Baytullah.

What are you doing now, O Salafi `ulama? What have you left your muluk from the old cities of Mecca ul-Mukarrama and Madinat ul-Munawwarah? It was obligatory on the `ulama to say that the old cities Mecca ul-Mukarrama and Madinat ul-Munawwara, are not to be touched. You never did it and you have a heavy responsibility in the Divine Presence. You are now the grandsons of the grandsons who did wrong things in both holy cities, yet their spirituality is on the same power. How you are going to say to other people, other nations, the non-Muslim world, about Islam and about His Prophet?

That is your mission now. Leave these buildings but give a right description on his personality so that people may say, “A person without a father and mother; his father passed away before he was born and his mother passed away when he was five or six years old. He was an orphan without any protection, except from the Lord of Heavens. Those people had no schools, universities or colleges. He was not writing or reading. How was that one becoming a chosen one?” He was saying, “O People! I am just a chosen one from the heavens, to be a Warner for you. Your ways are wrong! O People, come to the right way.”

No one was with him, only the One Who was sending him. And what did he do in 25 years? He was raising the flag of Islam from China, Mongolia, up to Poitiers, Andalusia, Africa and Russia. Which power (can do this?) You must say this. You must give your most high praising to that one. You are Arabs. You are living in the most holy places, where he was standing and saying, “O People! You must say (Mawlana stands), la ilaaha illa-Llah Muhammadun Rasoolullah.”

O People! Try to understand. May Allah forgive us for the honor of this holy night. And we hope that a change must come, perhaps. I am very weak, the weakest one, perhaps. If three or 30 or 30,000 people are listening, it is not enough. People must know, must learn and must believe, if they are asking to be saved here and Hereafter.

O Allah, forgive us (Mawlana stands) for the honor of your most honored one, the most glorified servant, Sayyidina Muhammad (s).


I am looking once again how they are; they are very, very, mashaa-Allah nice faces, (I am) looking, everyone looks like a big `alim. There is also Shaykh Nasaan, mashaa-Allah. He claims that he is reaching from east to west. (Mawlana laughs.)
