Ladies' Dhikr and Suhbah in Private Home / `Asr
Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem.
Thank you for coming. Mashaa-Allah, I'm very happy. Don't think we are only a couple of people here. We have a lot of angels with us because there are angels that go around the world, but you don't know the number of angels. Allah created them from light. Angels go around the world to see who is making dhikr with the group and the angels call their friends, "Look! I found majlis adh-dhikr, Qur'an and salawaat." They all sit together with the group and make dhikr and afterwards they go to the Heavens, where Allah (swt) asks, "What did you see My servants doing?"
Allah (swt) says, "I give them freedom from Hell and they will go to Paradise."
Those angels only come once, because Allah (swt) created many angels. We don't see them because they are made of heavenly Light.
Mashaa-Allah, in this far away country I am seeing young girls following Islam, wearing hijaab, following tariqah, following Mawlana Shaykh Nazim. I am very proud to meet all of you. Inshaa-Allah, we have to gather together for the sake of Prophet (s), and inshaa-Allah all of us will be together. Thank you for coming to listen to my dhikr. Yesterday Shaykh Hisham made dhikr, and some people said, "O, we don't need to do too much dhikr," but dhikr polishes the heart. The more you make dhikr, the more your heart will shine with belief and become more strong.
When I was a girl, every Monday my mother, Hajjah Amina, made dhikr for the ladies and more than 200 women of all ages came, mashaa-Allah. From my young age, I remember my mother gave many suhbahs and we have many of her books, including a whole story about prophets. Mashaa-Allah, she was a very good scholar and, of course, she is the same level as my father. Everyone has their level. Because woman was created from man, so they must be matching to be made as one.
(A mureed sister is overwhelmed and weeps hysterically.) I am happy also, thank you. Before Allah created our bodies, He created our souls. On the day that Allah created us, our souls were in love with our Creator, Allah, and with our shaykh. And then our souls came to dunya. Look, never as a young child did I dream I would come to Australia or America, but just Allah sent me everywhere. I met all of you and I feel in myself as if I know you from a long time ago. This one (mureed sister) is crying from the tajalli, the heavenly showering of mercy from Allah (swt). In this life again you are going to be separated by death. In akhirah, inshaa-Allah, on the Judgment Day you are going to come back and all of us are going to be gathered with Sayyidina Muhammad (s) and our shaykh in Paradise. At that time, we are not going to be separated. For this reason she has this tajalli, a blessing from Allah (swt), and she feels this. I myself feel like I know all of you, because before Allah created our body and the Earth, He created our soul a long time ago.
I don't know if I am able to explain. I try my best. You know in the night of Laylat ul-Qadr, the Night of Power in Ramadan, Allah (swt) comes to the First Heaven. Any person who is born on this night must become Muslim. All of you who convert to Islam, for sure all of you were born on the 27th of Ramadan, Laylat ul-Qadr. Their age doesn't matter; they will become Muslim! Look how He is Merciful! He granted that seven generations on both sides, grandfather and grandmother, will have less punishment in the grave, ...! With the blessing of one person taking shahadah, look how merciful and forgiving Allah is. SubhaanAllah.
He made us from ummatan Sayyidina Muhammad (s). We must pray two raka`at Salaat ash-Shukr that He created us from ummatan Sayyidina Muhammad (s). Yes we are very weak, and we are very short in age, not like the people before, like Sayyidina Musa (a), Sayyidina Sulayman (a), or Sayyidina `Isa (a), who had very long lives, living more than a hundred years. We are very short-lived people, the last nation, that will be in the grave only a short time. We are the luckiest! How many thousands of years before us many nations came, and they are still underground! We are lucky that we will be in our grave a short time, and each person will have his own light on Judgment Day, like the light in front of the car. That light will be on our faces; nobody will be able to see from the back, and each will only see his own light.
May Allah make our faces like a full moon with a lot of light, and inshaa-Allah, we will all go with the shafa`a of Prophet (s), with our shaykh, Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani! Inshaa-Allah, we will go with them to Paradise from our love. Our worship is nothing, it is dust. Just keep your love, your belief, and the faith in your heart very strong to be with them, inshaa-Allah.
Yaa Rabbi 'l-`Alameen.
She is crying from love, from fear of Allah (swt), and from the love of Prophet (s). This khushoo`, longing/love, one cup from these tears can make Hellfire disappear, because she is crying from `ashq, love of Prophet (s) and love of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim. Mashaa-Allah, she is `aashiqa, a lover! She has a lot of tajjali with her from the tajalli of the dhikr.
(Az-Zahra Ensemble performs Yaa Taybah)
Yaa Taybah, we missed you and the wind called on us.
Yaa Taybah, O medication of the patients.
Salnun, in clear peace, O my beloved.
He came to us in Haqq and guidance.
He taught the knowers...
O my master, O Prophet of Allah.
O he to whom Allah gave a high level.
If the bad people came to seek forgiveness, Allah will forgive them.
She said in her song, one from the nation came with a lot of sins and badness, and he asked for forgiveness from Prophet (s), to ask Allah (swt) to forgive him, and we are asking forgiveness for the whole nation.
