Ziyara to Maqaam of Shaykh Sayfuddin (q)

India Tour Day 4

Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani

3 January 2015 Chandigarh, India (2)

A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani ‘r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. 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. [Du`a.]

If we were able to hear him, he is saying that this dunya is like that. They were the kings, the sultans of the `ulama of this dunya. Where is he now? He is Sultan al-Akhirah, but Sultan al-Awliya al-Akhirah is different from the sultan in dunya, as it is still in dunya. This dunya is faani, going, and Akhirah is staying.

These awliyaullah are giving us a reminder that dunya is going, so don’t run after dunya so much that you won’t have time for your Akhirah. You pretend that you are in Akhirah, but in reality you are not. Akhirah is by `amal, you must do good deeds for it, not to keep quiet and only sleep, drink and eat, but look after the affairs of the Muslims, see how you can help them and humanity, as that is what Allah likes.

May Allah (swt) keep those brothers who are looking after this place here always happy and strong, inshaa-Allah. Yaa Rabbee, make them happy with their children and grandchildren! If not for them, you would never see these maqaams. If a Wahhabi comes, they won’t leave anything [they will destroy it, as they have other maqaams] and because of them, Allah (swt) is sending more and more people to fix these holy shrines. They kept it for us to enjoy.

Yesterday our flight was cancelled. They were testing us: are we going to cancel and stay where we were or are we going to face the obstacle and find a way to come here? Alhamdulillah, with the Prophet’s (s) barakah, Allah made it easy for us to come here on a bus instead of a plane, on this day, 12 Rabi` al-Awwal, Sunday, here in Sirhind, to celebrate with those who are in the grave or outside the grave. Those in the grave are in Akhirah and those outside are in dunya, and both are celebrating the birth of the Prophet (s)!

All the paradises are being decorated with heavenly decorations, with salawaat on the Prophet (s)! All angels are ordered to make salawaat and this coincides with the day we came. That is a blessing! It never happens and might not happen another time, to come on the day of Mawlid an-Nabi (s), twelfth of Rabi` al-Awwal, as this is rare. It means we are accepted in the presence of the Prophet (s), that Awliyaullah presented us to the Prophet (s), especially our shaykhs, Sultan al-Awliya, Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Adil al-Haqqani an-Naqshbandi (q) and Sultan al-Awliya `AbdAllah al-Fa’iz ad-Daghestani (q)!

May Allah be happy with you all and make these Awliya to be happy with all of us.

Bi hurmati 'l-habeeb, bi hurmati 'l-Fatihah.
