Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

20 January 2011 Lefke, Cyprus

A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem.

Do you know the numbers of elements? (114) One hundred and fourteen? (If I’m not mistaken.) Fourteen, or four? Who discovered this? We learned ninety elements; it is the Periodic Table, the Mendeleev’s Table. He was Russian, and he dreamt when making this, yes. Doctor? (You know!) Doctor's mind is going to macaroni; therefore, he is not answering such things. Mendeleev – macaroni is best! `Abdul Malik, how many elements (are there)? (114, inshaa-Allah Sayyidee.) 20,000! More! Maybe fifty thousand, maybe fifty million. The Creator! Allah, Allah.

Innama amuruhu idha araada shayan an yaqoola lahu kun fayakoon.

Haqq. If the Lord of Heavens called fifty trillion elements into existence, He may say, "Come!" and they will come.

وَمَا قَدَرُوا اللَّهَ حَقَّ قَدْرِهِ وَالْأَرْضُ جَمِيعًا قَبْضَتُهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ وَالسَّماوَاتُ مَطْوِيَّاتٌ بِيَمِينِهِ سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ

ist`eedhu billah. Wa maa qadar Allaha haqq qadrihi wa ’l-ard jamiyy`an qabdatahu yawm al-qiyaamati wa ’s-samawaati matwiyaatun biyameenihi subhanahu wa ta`ala `amaa yushrikoon.

No just estimate have they made of Allah, such as is due to Him: On the Day of Judgment the whole of the earth will be but His handful, and the heavens will be rolled up in His right hand: Glory to Him! High is He above the Partners they attribute to Him! (az-Zumar, 39:67)

Tawbah, yaa Rabbee!

وَمَا أُوتِيتُم مِّن الْعِلْمِ إِلاَّ قَلِيلاً

Maa utiytum min al-`ilmi illa qaleela.

of knowledge it is only a little that is communicated to you, (O men!)" (al-Isra, 17:85)

Maa yakoon hadha katheera `ala ’d-dawaam. Always it is a little bit; it can't be everything. However much you have been granted from knowledge, it is only a little bit. Absolute Knowledge Oceans are for His Majesty, for His Dominions. Allahu Akbar! You can't bring any measure for His Greatness! Allahu Akbar, Allah, astaghfirullah.
