The Secrets of Numbers

Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

2 January 2010 Lefke, Cyprus

Dastoor yaa Sayyidee, Madad yaa Sultaan. (Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, la ilaaha illa-Llah w 'allahu akbar, Allahu akbar wa lillahi 'l-hamd! Madad yaa Sultan al-Awliya. Alfu-salaat, alfu salaam `alayka yaa `ala Sayyidi 'l-awwaleen wa 'l-akhireen. Ishf`a lana. We are asking your intercession, yaa Rasulullah (s) here and Hereafter, from pre-Eternal up to Eternal. We are asking to stand up for giving endless praise and glory to You, our Creator, and for our most beloved Prophet, Sayyidina Muhammad (s) to be given honor that no one has been given. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

As-salaamu ` alaykum! From east to west, for the whole of Mankind we are asking forgiveness for all from Allah Almighty, because they are also our Lord's deputies. Some of them are trying to reach a real position for being deputies, some are zhaalimun li-nafsih (oppressors of their selves.) They are not thinking on it, they are drunk ones. O our Lord, accept our excuse. You know everything, and we are running to You. Where are you going to find Him? (Mawlana Shaykh laughs.) We are saying we are running to our Lord, but where can we find Him? That is something that very, very few people may understand and may know, and they may run.

O Our Listeners! Good evening, marhaban (welcome)! Be pleased. Why are you not going to be pleased? Our listeners, are you drunk? This is the third night of the New Year, yet you are drunk? You are not intending to come back to yourselves? Drunk ones are running away from themselves, leaving themselves and running to find themselves as drunk people. Where are you?! Are you in the west, east, north, or south? What are you asking to find? Yes, everyone is asking to find something, but what is that?

O Listeners! As-salaamu ` alaykum. I am a weak servant, perhaps the weakest servant, but when our responsibility is for everyone through existence, for His honor, we are running to Him, to find ourselves. O our listeners, did you find yourselves?

O Salafi `ulama! Marhaban. Did you find yourselves? It is a simple question. Why are you getting angry so quickly? O Wahabi `ulama also, did you find yourselves? Yes, it is a simple question that I am asking, and I need an answer, but no one can answer that question if he is not reaching the level of ma`rifah, knowledge above knowledge. Yes, I would like to know where I am. Do you think that you know where you are now? You are getting angry. So many questions they are leaving to a weakest servant to ask to you. I am not claiming I am something, but I like to ask that question. Where are you? Do you know about yourself? Who are you? You may say, "We are servants of our Lord," and I am saying you are liars! You may ask why; because you are servants of your egos, not servants of Allah. They are not servants, including myself; I am not a servant to my Lord as He likes, and therefore, I am asking forgiveness. Are you asking for forgiveness daily? I don't think so. You may say, "We can't find time to make istighfaar, to say astaghfirullah."

Are you not reading the Seal of Prophet's (s) sayings, ahadeeth? He was saying, "O my companions, my Nation, I am saying astaghfirullah at least 70 times daily." He used a number also, but you are thinking there is no number. There must be a number, عَلَيْهَا تِسْعَةَ عَشَرَ`alayha tis`ati `ashr, Over it are 19, ( Al-Muddaththir, 74:30) there is a secret in numbers, therefore Allah Almighty is saying, `alayha tis`ati `ashar. Why saying, or why you are not asking, "O our Lord, You are only saying 19 angels, why you are not making it to be 20?" Shaykh Hisham Effendi, why are they stopping `alayha tis`ati `ashar, "On it are nineteen angels?" alayha `ashroon (20) is absent? Number one, Abdur Ra`uf, number two Ishaaq, yes sir, number three Bahauddin, wonder...number four, Shaykh Hisham (“Yes sir!”) number five, nine? Nabeel (“That's me, yes sir!) I am here. Where is 19? Nineteen, I am here. Who is that one? Nineteen is Nizamuddin. No 20, absent? No one finding to complete 20? That is the question I am asking.

They are making me address those saying they are doctors, theologists, or `ulama, not ordinary `ulama, but Salafi `ulama! What are Salafi `ulama answering to what I am asking? Why is the Lord of Heavens stopping at "19" and not saying "20"? Is that the end of numbers? That means there are some secrets for every number and up to 19, each one has a secret. The secret of one can't be known by two, and the secret of two can't be known by three, and three's secret can't be known by four, and four's secret can't be known by five, and also the secret of seven can't be known by six, and six's secrets can't be known by five! Why? Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar! Why is Allah Almighty bringing this? And we must say, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani 'r-rajeem. O our Lord, protect us not to fall into shaytanic traps. Yes. SubhaanAllah, Sultan Allah. SubhaanAllah, Sultan Allah.

The Prophet was saying, "I am also asking for forgiveness 70 times daily." Why did he not say 60 or 80 times? Why was he not completing by 100 times, and if 100 times, why not completing 1000 times? Secrets through secrets, hidden treasures through every number. Also, for every dharrah, atom, there is a number. Without a number you cannot find any atoms. Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar al-akbar. SubhaanAllahu Ta`aala.

Wahabi `ulama who only learned to say, "Shirk, bid`a, haraam, kufr," leave that and enter through the secrets that are hidden through Unseen Oceans! In an ocean with countless kinds of fish, is every one the same as the second one? Is everyone's being in existence the same? Why are so many kinds of fish and creatures through oceans, for what? Why are there not only sharks, or only whales? So many kinds of fish and each one is different. Why is every one not going to be the same? If you are saying, "We are `ulama," sometime sending to you someone to make your knowledge on zero point, to remind you, "Don't say you are Salafi `ulama but say, 'We are taalibi `ilm,' (seekers of knowledge.)" That is true.

Also, I am asking non-Muslims, what do you know about the realities of the heavens? Through your holy books, you may have some knowledge, so say to me! His Holiness the Pope, or His Holiness, the Chief Rabbi, what do you think is written about the Seven Heavens through your holy books, say! It is written. And then I am asking non-Muslims and their chiefs or heads, the ones who are claiming, "We are on the last level of heavens," do you know any difference between Islamic understanding or Islamic knowledge about heavens and yours? Is it different, or is Islam also saying it is the same understanding? Do you think that you are knowing in a different way than what the Holy Qur'an is bringing about the Seven Heavens?

All holy books have mentioned about the Seven Heavens. What do you say, His Holiness the Pope, or His Holiness, the Chief Rabbi, about the Seal of Prophet’s knowledge brought from heavens about heavens? What is the difference between your understanding through your holy books and the Holy Qur'an? Any difference? If no difference, why are you not coming to say, la ilaaha illa-Llaah Sayyidina Muhammadun Rasoolullah ? (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.) What is the matter, why you are not saying? Who sent Jesus Christ (a) also sent Noah (a)! Who sent Abraham also sent Isaac, Abraham, Ishmael, Jacob, and Job (a)!

O People! You must try to be humble, and it can't be given as an excuse to say that this is because the Holy Qur'an is bringing it! What the Holy Bible, Old Testament, New Testaments and Psalms are bringing from the heavens is mentioned through the Holy Qur'an also! Leave the messengers, but look to the holy books. If you are saying that only the Old Testament and New Testaments are holy books, what is your proof that the Holy Qur'an is not one of the holy books? Why? Which thinking or learning said to you that the Holy Qur'an is not coming from the heavens? What is your proof? We are accepting and saying the Old and New Testaments are from the Heavens! What about the third one? We are speaking on numbers.

Therefore, I am shouting to Salafi `ulama. Why are you not discussing this with the pope and the cardinals?! Why are you not making a debate between yourselves and the rabbis? The Lord of Heavens is saying, if you are saying something you must bring proof, قُلْ هَاتُواْ بُرْهَانَكُمْ qul haattoo burhaanukum, "Say: Bring your proof!" (Al-Baqara, 2:111) Yes, bring it, we may look! If you are saying, "We are looking at the pole star and seeing so many things," and if I am saying the moon is more clear to be known, how can you say the moon and its position are nothing, but what you are seeing through the pole star is true? Which mentality accepts from you to say that you are looking at the pole star, saying such and such. What about the moon? They are saying, "No, we are not accepting." That is nihaayatu'l- jahl, "the end (limit) of ignorance." It is the last point or horizon for their misunderstanding, and no mentality can accept their claims. They are saying, "We are looking on pole star, so many people going, coming," and we are saying, "Look at the moon!" and they are saying nothing is there. How it can be?

According to their calendars, Jesus Christ was sent as a miraculous being 2000 years ago and everything that he did they are accepting as miraculous. And we are looking where he went, where he sat, what he was speaking, discussing or declaring his prophecy. What about the moon? The moon is more clear, but they are seeing and saying so many things about Venus or Mars, "What we are seeing so far away is true." And you are calling all people to come and accept that one who was a miraculous being. We are believing also, but not as you are understanding. The Lord of Heavens may create without a father. He created Adam and Eve with no father or mother. He only said, "Come in existence!" and coming one man and one woman.

Why are you insisting that Jesus Christ is the son of the Lord? Who is saying this? Do you think that Abraham (pbuh) said about Jesus, "Through my generation is coming a new prophet who is the son of our Lord"? Which holy book saying this? None! Do you think Moses said this about this one? No. How you are claiming? But people are not accepting a wrong thing. They are saying, "Wrong is going to be the opposite of our understanding." No, reality cannot be changed. You can dress it with everything, but that reality is never changing it's personality or identity. That was a man, and this is a man also! The Lord of Heavens created Sayyidina Adam (a), the first man, without a mother and father. Sayyidina Musa (a) came from a father and mother, like all other prophets. And our prophet, the Seal of Prophets (s), came from a man and a woman.

What is the specialty for Jesus Christ? If you are saying he is the son of God, why he was not mentioned through Adam's holy book? Why he was not mentioned through Noah's book, Abraham's book, Jacob's book, Isaac's book or Ishmael's books? Why did the Lord of Heavens hide him? If Jesus Christ is the son of God, why was He hiding him from the beginning and only making him to be in a time and people saying, "Oh (he has) no father; this must be son of God." With which authority are you saying this? No background for it through holy books. Why is it not mentioned, yet it is such an important point? (You claim) people must know that the Lord of Heavens has a son, to believe in him, and when you are believing in him, unbelievers rushing on him and killing him, crucifying him? (Sheikh Hisham Effendi, you are VIP one, I think so.) Why is He (God) hiding this? Why not declaring, "O My servant, I have a son also! If you are believing in Me, you must believe in my son also." Which prophet was saying this? Adam? Moses? From thousand of prophets, from where are you declaring, "This is the son of God?" He (God) was making His son as a lamb to be slaughtered?

O Christians! You must use your mentality or you are going to lose everything, because the mentality of Mankind is never accepting what you are saying. I am a weak servant, I am not knowing anything, and I am not claiming I am this one or that one, but making a comparison only. Give your answer. You are fearing that all Christians in western or European countries are running to Islam. You are worryling! Is Islam coming from under the Earth or coming from up (in heavens)? Why are you fearing? What command of Islam is against humanity? Say! If you are not saying, you must fear from your Lord.

Tawbah, yaa Rabbee (repentance, my Lord)! We are asking forgiveness for ourselves and for everyone whose thinking is wrong, to come and declare the truth that has been sent from the beginning up to the end. May Allah forgives us.

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, SubhaanAllah
