Alhamdulillahi Rabbi 'l-`Alameen, wa ’s-salaatu wa ’s-salaamu `alaa ashrafi 'l-mursaleena Sayyidina wa Nabiyyina Muhammadin wa `alaa aalihi wa sahbihi ajma`een. amaa ba`d fa ya `ibaadullah ittuqallah feemaa amar wa antahoo `amaa naha `anhu wa zajar. wa hadha yawmun jadeeda yaftakhar feeha as-samawaati wa 'l-ard.
This is a great day from which Heavens and Earth are benefiting. Allah (swt) forgives the sins of all the Ummah. The Prophet (s) informed us a great event would be taking place on Earth as the Sign of the Last Days. This is the way we are going that Allah has decreed for us. He forgives our sins, so how will you act in ways that are not good and fall into ma`siya, wrongdoing? Allah (swt) has taught us things through His Beloved the Prophet (s) to protect us from falling into problems. This is one example: imagine if one percent of the number of human beings has been ordered to make istighfaar on behalf of the rest of the Ummah, by means of salawaat on the Prophet (s) Allah (sends) prayers on that person. If Allah prays on that person what will happen? Heavens and Earth will split open with just a movement of His Hands!
We are an Ummah that has a great importance: Allah (swt) has dressed us with the blessings of the Prophet (s) like a rainbow of many different colors, and Awliyaullah look at the mureeds through these beautiful colors. When Awliyaullah want to see their mureeds, they look at the sun and the moon and they see their mureeds through them. That is how they look at the Prophet (s): they enjoy that beauty, the joy of looking at him (s). This is not from me nor from anybody, but this is from the Prophet (s). He is in his ocean and he is swimming in Allah's (swt) Favors and Blessings, with Allah's immense love to him (s).
Allah created love because of the Prophet (s) and He decorates everything with the love of the Prophet (s), where the Prophet (s) receives and then disperses the love of Allah (swt). That is why love is the highest level human beings are seeking. That is from the astonishing knowledges: when you look at a human being, you see a human being and they try to explain from that secret of looking. Why are they looking at someone else? Because, as we said just now, the gnostic looks at the mureed that Allah has given to them to gaze upon.
The greatest thing is to follow the guidance of the Prophet (s). We will not see: even when you "see" you will not see. What we are seeing is nothing, it is zero or one percent (of Reality). With the power of Rasoolullah (s), everyone has their limits because he is the carrier of the Message and only one can carry that message: Habeebullah, our beloved Prophet (s)!
They are boasting and proud in a good way. We hope that Allah will make us always take pride and joy from Rasoolullah (s). He is the one who distributes it and he is the one who erases the sins of his nation, and he is the one who is moving. He (s) is everything.
The perfection of a human being is when he comes out of his body completely, at that time we look at the greatness of Allah (swt). What is the meaning of the man or woman or a child sitting like this group and has been offered happiness? It is very difficult to explain, but we ask support to explain it. Yaa Sayyidee, yaa Rasoolullah.
As Awliyaullah look at the sun or the moon, just as they have different colors, no one can detect the different colors except through a microscope. If you don't have a microscope, you cannot see. We ask Allah (swt) to dress us with a divine microscope to see these colors. Asking through Mawlana Shaykh, what is the difference? When we look, we only see the outward appearance of what we are looking at, but these are very fruitful and sweet things following the understanding that to see what people cannot see, to say what people cannot say, to teach what people cannot teach. Every day we take these from the Prophet (s).
Looking at the face of the Wali is equal to looking at the face of a Qutb. There are five qutbs: Qutb, Qutb al-Bilaad, Qutb al-Mutassarif, Qutb al-Irshaad, and Qutb al-Aqtaab. They carry the human beings and are responsible for Ummat an-Nabi (s). We are all waiting for the love of mashayikh to come on us. So he used the word "mahabbat", love, to see how much Allah gave to these qutbs, because of all their sitting and looking at Ummat an-Nabi (s) and cleaning and protecting them.
Two words very heavy on the Scale, but very light on the tongue: SubhanAllah wa bi hamdihi SubhanAllahi 'l-`Azheem astaghfirullah.
So don't worry. Let us look at someone now, it does not matter if he is young or old: if you read some Surahs from Holy Qur'an or if you have achieved a high level in Tariqah, it will open for you ways that have never been opened before. For example, these ways exist at all times, it is called by its name but it has many names. These ways follow the orders of the Prophet (s). What is the difference between these different paths or ways?
They are found in human beings and Mawlana Shaykh Nazim, may Allah bless his soul, opened for us from whatever it is. It is his desire from his love to give us something never given before. 'Al-massarah' means invitations to different ways and roads; all tariqas have their ways of moving forward. 14 billion ways are found in human beings. Allah (swt) is the One Who Creates and Hides these ways within human beings. Every one of us is made from these ways. These ways are taking you to walk and to speak. Their ways are empowered and introduced to the creation and all this was given to Ummat an-Nabi (s). The ways are also a sign for a creation that no one is able to uncover. Anyone who wants to uncover these ways will be burned because the intensity of the light out of which these ways are made, and this is only for the Prophet (s).
توبى لَنَا مَعْشَر الإنساني
انَّ لَنَا مِنَ الْعِنَايَةِ ركْنا غَيْر مُنْهَدمِ
Fa tooba lana ya ma`ashar al-Islami
Inna lana ruknun ghayra munhadimi
Good tidings to us, O Mankind,
we have a pillar on which we can dependably lean.
Sayyidina `Abdul-Qadir al-Jilani (q) was among the greatest Awliya and although he is in his grave, he is still one of the great Awliya. Good tidings for us, O People of Islam! We have a pillar on which we can lean that will never be destroyed.
How strong is the wall that was built for Ya'juj and Ma'juj to stop them from coming out? You have heard about Ya'juj and Ma'juj. Let it be known that no one can destroy them except through the Prophet (s).
Don't be in a rush to go to your home [ie for this event to end]. These are secrets of Creation that I receive from Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (q) and you are also receiving from Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (q): he and everyone is receiving according to their light.
Are you hearing about the existence of the Creation? The greatness of this way is that each person can talk and speak these masarrat, ways. And each one is able to talk and able to read and able to move and do anything needed for Ummat an-Nabi (s). So do we love the Prophet (s)? These are the levels of knowledge no one else can carry, only Awliyaullah can carry. You will soon see the Realities of these messages come from Heavens inshaa'Allah soon you will see the reality of it. When the rain is falling, human beings are running away from the rain. (audience claps)
Applauding is makruh. Instead: Salloo `alaa an-Nabi (s), send blessings upon the Prophet (s)!
These lights begin in the month of Rajab, the month of Allah. Is Allah in need of a month? Then why did He say, "Rajabun shahrullah"? Because in it there are astonishing things! For someone who wants to enter khalwah in the month of Rajab, angels will descend upon them and support them in their khalwah. Mawlana Shaykh ordered me to do khalwah, so what was in it? I heard the sound of animals until I reached the fourth animal, which was a rattlesnake. If you don't speak with these animals they speak with you in the khalwah and they come after you until they bite you. What things you see in the khalwah, if you ignore them they will give you a normal life.
The book "Fifty Days" is about what happened to me in the seclusion. I wrote all the inspirations that came to me as you see amazing things in this khalwah.
May Allah forgive us, may Allah (swt) guard us from Shaytan, may Allah make us safe from the four enemies: nafs, dunya, hawwa and Shaytan. This is enough to make Shaytan run away, to get the spiritual light, wherever you go you will be guided by this light.
A story of Sayyidina `Abdul-Qadir al-Jilani (q) is that he had a son who was always attending the dhikr of his father. One day Shaytan came to attack him through the way he understands. He said, "O father, what about you? I graduated from (University of) al-Azhar. I studied Imam Shafi`i, Imam Abu Hanifa, I studied everything but I cannot understand how your students have no knowledge of these imams, they have not studied anything from Shari`ah. How are they going to be Awliya if they don't know that? How?"
He said to his father, "I know more than you. I know Shafi`i, I know Hanafi, I know Maliki. I have a question for you: why do people follow you when you don't know anything? Why are the people following you and they are not following me who knows everything?" Hafazhanallah - may Allah protect us.
So he said,"O my son, today I cannot attend dhikr, you go in my place," and he said, "You are missing love of the Prophet (s). I have been dressed and blessed with love of the Prophet (s) and I have been with dressed with the best of clothing, and I have never eaten haraam food. I saw you, you are following me, but I have an answer for your question. The answer to your question: O my son, is, be careful of arrogance; arrogance will destroy a person - it is one of the four snakes. When you do dhikr you have to drop yourself and your existence and put yourself in Allah Almighty's existence."
That is how Awliyaullah become Awliya. They did not follow only the books of Shari`ah. They followed the Way and that way totally cleans you. You want to succeed, they didn't follow only the Shari`ah books because that way is not complete, it can give you help but not all that you need. The one who is successful is the one with two wings, the one who learned Tariqah and Shari`ah. One person will have 120 volts while the one with both has 220 volts. Don't make Islam look bad. The a'imma, the four imams, are the shining lights of this world. May Allah make us among them, al-Fatihah.
