Suhbah with Ziyarat of the Holy Hair of the Prophet (s)
Dastoor yaa Sayyidee, Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani, madad.
A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem.
Nawaytu 'l-arba`een, nawaytu 'l-`itikaaf, nawaytu 'l-khalwah, nawaytu 'l-`uzlah,
nawaytu 'r-riyaadah, nawaytu 's-sulook, lillahi ta`ala fee haadha 'l-masjid.
On behalf of Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani, we perform dhikr on this very important night, the night when Prophet (a) passed from his father (r) to his mother (r), which his year comes immediately at the beginning of the month of Rajab.
The first Thursday night of Rajab is Laylat al-Raghaa’ib. As-salaamu `alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh! (We send salaam as) anything from the Prophet (s) is alive. This holy hair was passed to us from Sultan `Abdul-Hameed. We make shahaadah here (in this holy presence) and this hair will be a witness for us us on the Day of Judgment! As Sayyidina `Umar (r) said, “I kiss the Black Stone, but I know it is only a stone which can neither benefit nor harm” Sayyidina `Ali (r) said, "No, O Umar! Don’t you know that stone is alive and will witness on Judgment Day?"
And so now in front of this holy hair, we recite and that hair is witnessing: ash-hadu an la ilaha illa-Llah wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan `abduhu wa rasooluh!
And we recite the Verse of Baya`
ashadu an laa ilaaha ill 'Llaah wa ashadu anna Muhammadan `abduhu wa rasooluh (3x) -
I bear witness that there is no god except Allah and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and Prophet.

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يُبَايِعُونَكَ إِنَّمَا يُبَايِعُونَ اللَّهَ يَدُ اللَّهِ فَوْقَ أَيْدِيهِمْ فَمَن نَّكَثَ فَإِنَّمَا يَنكُثُ عَلَى نَفْسِهِ وَمَنْ أَوْفَى بِمَا عَاهَدَ عَلَيْهُ اللَّهَ فَسَيُؤْتِيهِ أَجْرًا عَظِيمًا
Inn'alladheena yuba`oonaka innamaa yuba`oon-Allaah, yadullaahi fawqa aydiyhim, faman nakatha fa-innamaa yankuthu `alaa nafsih wa man awfaa bimaa `ahad `alayhullaaha fa-sayu'teehi ajran `azheema
In the name of Allah the Compassionate, the Merciful.
Verily those who plight their fealty to thee do no less than plight their fealty to Allah. the Hand of Allah is over their hands: then any one who violates his oath, does so to the harm of his own soul, and any one who fulfils what he has covenanted with Allah,- Allah will soon grant him a great Reward. (Surat al-Fath, 48:10)
ridayana billah rabban wa bi ’l-islaami deenan wa bi Sayyidina Muhammad (s) rasoolan wa nabiyyan...
