We Don't Argue About the Holy Companions

Shaykh Hisham Kabbani

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.

Amma ba`ad. Innee ana ghafurun raheem? Allah says Himself, “I am the One who forgives any sins the `abd has committed. So from here we say [Mawlana makes du`a] “Yaa Rabbee, anzil `alayna rahmatan min `indik, taghfirlana dhunubana… min khayr al-nabi salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam. Allathi huwa shafi’una. Wa la ahad yunkir ‘ala hatha-l-shay’, wa la ahad yazunn annahu qala shay’an azeeman”

If jinn and ins were gathered to find out the Reality of Prophet (s), they would never be able to find out anything or reach it. Any person who tries to speak about the Reality of Prophet (s), the Reality of his Noor, and the Reality of those around him from the beginning to the end of the world, they would never reach an atom from the speech of Rasoolullah (s). So don’t misinterpret us or be arrogant against us. Islam today is not right, and recitation of the Qur’an is not correct. They wanted to interpret the Qur’an according to their desires.

Ibn Ma`sood (r) said, “Follow the majority,” don’t follow your ego. The majority of Muslims are well known around the world, and we are running to extend our hands with others, we are millions and the others are [inaudible] a little bit. We don’t create things. We choose the greats from the Ummah. Those who sacrificed their lives to elevate the rank of the Ummah are the Companions of the Prophet (s), and especially among them, the first and last, is Sayyida Fatima al-Zahra (a) and Sayyidina Hamza and all the great Companions (radhiAllahu anhum). Therefore, anybody who belongs to Ahlul Bayt, we are happy for them; don’t think we don’t love Ahlul Bayt, as they say!

I heard a lecture Friday. There is a person who teaches young kids about the Life of the Companions of Rasoolullah (s), who don’t need any reminder to go to Sayyidina Muhammad (s). There were problems around the time of Sahaabah (r), but we don’t use it in order to fight. Yesterday in London, Ahmad Zaki explained that point, that there are very correct Sahaabah (r) of Prophet (s), as it came to us. And the Companions, may Allah be pleased with them, ennoble their faces, and peace be upon them, have taken the affairs of this religion. This is why we have to follow the great majority. We don’t take sides: we are under the majority and the majestic power of Rasoolullah (s). No one can differ on this.

Just as the Prophet (s) is standing between the Hands of Allah (swt), we are standing between the hands of the Prophet (s), and the love of the Ummah towards the Companions. If there is a disagreement among the Companions (r), take what you like and leave what you don’t like. Why do we fight among each other? Where do we begin and where do we end? If the disagreement is within the Ummah, then when the disagreement ends the Ummah will end, and the end of the Ummah is a victory for evil. This is not acceptable. The victory of the Ummah is victory for Islam. Twenty, thirty, fifty people talk about the realities of Rasoolullah (s), and most of it is false but we don’t say anything, so we don’t make problems. Oh servants of Allah, agree among yourselves! There is nothing in this dunya. One day, in 20 years, 30 years, 55 years, 100 years, no person will remain in it. Allahumma salli alaa Sayyidina Muhammad. Fatihah.

Last night I woke up worried, and in a dream I saw Mawlana Shaykh Nazim coming from far, and he said, “I am coming back to support myself with the power that in the past I gave you (and Shaykh Adnan) for these future events." I did not ask him about this power. But with Mawlana’s baraka I know what it is, la tubqee wa laa tadhar (it does not let anything remain).

I don’t know what this power is that he got from Grandshaykh `AbdAllah al-Fa’iz ad-Daghestani, but Mawlana Shaykh Nazim came to take support from the power we have. So he is taking that power back, which has come to them from the same source, because of the approach of the appearance of Imam Mahdi (a). If I speak more than this, there will be problems and difficulties for you.

He used to hold me from my right hand and left hand, lifting me from both hands. This power is an order from him for the Nation of Rasoolullah (s).

I woke up in the morning crying. The saints always asked Allah (swt) to delay these events because they are very difficult: out of seven, one person will remain. [Allah, Allah.] Glad tidings to those who remain, and glad tidings to those who have reached that time. May Allah (swt) keep us to His Mercy, and guide us to His Guidance. If the Ummah corrects itself, the whole body corrects itself.

[Dhikr resumes.]

Whoever is a Companion of Rasoolullah (s) has won, and who is not the Companion of Rasoolullah (s) has lost. And also, whoever follows Sayyidat an-Nisaa, the leader of women of Paradise, Sayyida Fatima az-Zahra (r), are among those who will win, and her mahr, dowry, was the forgiveness of Ummati Muhammad (s): that’s how she accepted her marriage. Glad tidings to all of us.

[Dhikr resumes.]
