Suhbah Before Khatm
A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem.
Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani: Quickly before we begin, I would like to say that Mawlana Shaykh Nazim sends his salaams and he is recovering very quickly; this is the message from him and the family. And we pray for him to be granted long life and a healthy life, and to be with him to see Sayyidina al-Mahdi (a).
Mawlana Shaykh Adnan Kabbani: This is a very holy night that plenty of people don't know about, but we are in it, because after the birthday of Rasoolullah (s) by seven days, the Prophet (s) was named “Muhammad (s),” and this Friday is the seventh day where Allah (swt) sent the name “Muhammad,” as he (s) was named by his father and mother. Mawlana Shaykh said whatever is done on that day with the niyyah of Mawlid is like it is being done on 12th Rabi` al-Awwal. All awliyaullah used to celebrate this day just as they celebrate the day of Mawlud, and so we celebrate this day of naming as a celebration of this naming with Khatm al-Khwajagan just as we celebrate Mawlid, and we gift this to Mawlana Shaykh Nazim, who is getting better and whom, inshaa-Allah, we will see soon.
We thank all the family and his sons, Shaykh Mehmet and Shaykh Bahauddin, and we especially thank Shaykh Hisham, his son-in-law. And we say that who says only, “O Allah, cure Mawlana!” it will be enough to clean that person. And now Allah (swt) is sending cleaners to clean Earth of those who hate the awliyaullah and Ahlu ‘l-Bayt! Allah is going to clean them so that only those with love for awliyaullah and Ahlu ‘l-Bayt will remain, and those who don’t have real love will be taken.
Plenty of people say, “We are mureeds, we love awliyaullah and we love Ahl al-Bayt,” but all of them are saying by tongue only and not by heart. Allah knows the hearts and we cannot know the hearts of everyone, so everyone must renew his intention to be really for Allah (swt) and His Prophet (s), otherwise they will be cleaned and erased from this Earth! Allah Almighty is going to send Sayyidina al-Mahdi (a), and all whom are filled with sincerity and love to Allah Almighty and to Rasoolullah (s) and to awliyaullah and all others are going to be cleaned.
Mawlana Shaykh Nazim is doing very well. He said, “This (recent ill health) has been a spiritual burden that Allah Almighty made me carry from the Muslim world, from the weak people who are under the tyranny of all oppressors. This is something spiritual and by this spiritual sickness I am making seclusion for a week, and now it is the end of this week and after this (we will see) all signs and wars and events that Sayyidina al-Mahdi (a) is coming with, and soon all these events will happen. Before the month of Rajab, everything will be clear and so make intention to renew your imaan, as the Prophet (s) said to one Sahaabi, Sayyidina Abi Dharr al-Ghifari (r), “Renew your boat as the ocean is very deep and the journey to Yawm al-Qiyamah is very long.” So always repair it and renew it so as not to sink down in the sea.
And Mawlana Shaykh says, to repair this boat or repair ourselves, we renew ourselves by saying, “Ash-hadu an laa ilaaha illa-Llah wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan Rasooluh sall-Allahu `alayhi wa sallam.” This will renew your boat and help you clean yourself and reach safely to the shore of happiness and to be with Sayyidina al-Mahdi (a) with the assurity of Rasoolullah (s), with Sultan al-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Nazim and the awliyaullah. May Allah make us to be with all of them!
