Zoom Meeting & Suhbah
Translation by Imam Soihibou Mahmoudou
[Imam Sahib recites Surah Yaseen for the Urs of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (q)]
As-salaamu `alaykum wa rahmatullaahi ta’ala wa barakaatuh habeebu’r-Rahman.
May Allah (swt) make us among those who are keeping the Sunnah, inshaa-Allah. Thanks to Allah for His blessings and favors.
Does Allah (swt) need supporters? No. Why did He create human beings, especially the Prophet (s) himself and those who follow the Sunnah of the Prophet (s)? There must be a reason. He wanted to show the Children of Adam His Love for them. Allah (swt) could not create Adam (a) without the Prophet (s). He presented humanity with Sayyidina Muhammad (s). Allah (swt) wanted to present Prophet (s) and Mankind to Jibreel (a) and Mikhail (a) to show how much He loves the Prophet (s) and how much He loves Mankind - even more than Jibreel (a), Mikhail (a) and all angels.
He bestowed upon the Children of Adam favors, mercy and manifestations. They are saying to me, “O Shaykh! Continue! Continue!” What do they want me to continue? Who can continue in front of Allah (swt) or who can speak in front of the Divine Presence?
Allah (swt) wanted to make it easy for them. He (swt) made them to know that He created a Creation that carries all Heavens and Earth. No creation can precede Sayyidina Muhammad (s). If it was possible, then that creation would have been created. Allah (swt) created Creation and He created that Creation from His Light. He made that Light to turn in Heavens for many, many years. From that Light He made the Prophet (s) to be the one who carries every other creation. He presented the Prophet (s) to Bani Adam and he will be the one who carries all of Creation, Heavens and Earth.
Allah (swt) created all Creation and He gave them to the Prophet (s). Without pride Prophet (s) accepted and took this Creation from Allah (swt) with full acceptance and with the support of Allah (swt). They say that Mankind reached First, Second, Third, Fourth and Sixth Heaven but Allah (swt) created all these people who have gone this far to give good tidings to people about the Prophet (s).
Alhamdulillah wa ’s-salaatu wa ’s-salaamu `alaa Rasoolillah. Allah sent Sayyidina Muhammad (s) for all Sons of Adam, especially for his Ummah. Allah (swt) sent Sayyidina Muhammad to Mankind to tell them that there is Someone Who created them Who is All-Mighty and All-Powerful over all them and He sent down a Holy Book for them.
Allah (swt) created Heavens and Earth and in the Heavens He created inhabitants and on Earth He created inhabitants. All of this He gave to the Prophet (s) to take care of them all. The Earth is illuminated by the Light of its Creator. Prophets have also been illuminated by the Light of their Creator. Allah decorated the Heavens and the Earth with stars. Here we have to know Allah (swt) wanted to create Sayyidina Muhammad (s) and decorate him with all kind of decorations. And then He put Jibreel (a), Israfil (a) and all other angels under him.
Alhamdulillah, Allah (swt) has made the Prophet (s) to be our example. Don’t think it is something small and simple.
لَخَلْقُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ أَكْبَرُ مِنْ خَلْقِ النَّاسِ وَلَكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ
Greater indeed than the creation of man is the creation of the heavens and the earth: yet most men do not understand. (Surat al-Ghaafir, 40:57)
Allah (swt) says that the creation of Heavens and Earth is greater than the creation of Mankind. Think about how Allah (swt) created these Heavens with no pillars and it is also the same for the creation of this Earth. And as for us, Mankind, we have no pillars. Allah, Allah.
Alhamdulillah, the judgement is for Allah. We believe after Prophet (s) went for Israa’ wa 'l-Mi`raaj there is no creation stronger than Sayyidina Muhammad (s). He was asked, “What was given to you for your Nation?” The response was, “I created you for your Nation.” Praise Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! No prayer nor salutation will be accepted without Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! He was sent to all of the stars and planets that were created. No one can deny this, even the most advanced scientists, so they must also praise Sayyidina Muhammad (s). They cannot just say Allahumma salli `alaa Muhammad like that and finish. Salaat `alaa an-Nabi is du`a. The salaat for Prophet to Prophet is du`a.
Alhamdulillah, Allah has made him with a generous face and with a very strong Nation which is very generous also. Allah (swt) has sent him for all of Mankind as all Mankind was created from him.
بشْرٰى لَنَا مَعْشَر الاسْلامِ
انَّ لَنَا مِنَ الْعِنَايَةِ ركْنا غَيْر مُنْهَدمِ
Good tidings for you, O people of Islam!
We have a pillar of support that can never be destroyed.
Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah.
من صلى علي مرة واحدة صلى الله عليه بها عشرة
"Whoever prays on me one time, Allah (swt) will pray on him ten times." (Muslim from Abu Hurayrah [r])
This is because Allah’s love to the Prophet (s) is so much. His light has enlightened the whole of Creation. We cannot say “how?” Allah (swt) said it. Allah (swt) was asked, “What is the best thing for Mankind to do or say?” He said, “The best thing for Mankind to say is kalimatu laa ilaaha illa-Llah Muhammadun Rasoolullah so that it can be heard throughout all of the Heavens.” No one can erase that. The Earth entered Paradise, asked for shafa`ah and then left! The one to whom Allah (swt) gave the power of intercession in his hands is carrying that and he has brought everyone out of trouble through the power of that shafa`ah.
In many books they are writing laa ilaaha illa-Llah. They are reciting it and reading it but they don’t know its true meaning and what it carries of secrets and realities. They only say what suits them and they go and believe in it but there is no feeling that carries the love to the Prophet (s). It is a favor that Allah (swt) bestowed upon us. He has honored and given this to all. He wrote it in everything, even on the trees of Paradise, and He (swt) wants people to see it.
Allah will ask, “What have you done for your Lord?” You will say, “I have read salawat on Prophet (s).” That question will be addressed to all Awliya and they will respond that they have read salawat on Prophet (s). We wish to see Prophet (s). We are under his feet. We accept what he (s) says and we hope for mercy.
Alhamdulillah wa ’s-salaatu wa ’s-salaamu `alaa Rasoolillah Sayyidina Muhammad afdu ‘s-salaat wa salaam.
They are saying that the Prophet (s) is just a human being like you and me. They think it is something simple. O People! Don’t be afraid. You have someone who is taking care of you. You have people taking care of you but Mankind are forgetting the power that Allah dressed Sayyidina Muhammad (s) with to carry them.
O Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! We are following you. The power of saints is from the power of the Prophet (s)! For us what is for us and we hope and wish to be for us what is for us.
الْجَنَّةُ تَحْتَ أَقْدَامِ الأُمَّهَاتِ
They say, “Paradise is under the feet of mothers.” (Ibn `Adiyy in al-Kamil, from Anas)
That’s enough, it’s finished! Therefore, there is no fear for ladies. We are listening to the One Who created us and we are listening to Sayyidina Muhammad (s). Many people are not accepting that Paradise is under the feet of mothers. We must respect them and we must honor them. W’alhamdullahi Rabbi 'l-`Alameen.
