Awliya’s Souls are Dressed with Qudra (Power),
It’s By-Product is Divinely Knowledge
InshaAllah always a reminder for myself our life is ta’zim an Nabi ﷺ, is to spread the love and the majestic beauty in which Allah (AJ) has dressed upon Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. And it gives a honor to our lives, and it gives an honor to the angels who are writing these realities. They scribes who form the kitab (book). Their tashreef, and their honor is in documenting the greatness of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. So, it has a tremendous value upon our kitab (book), upon our being, and changes everything of our reality.
And the majestic might and majesty of Allah (AJ), and the gift in which dressed upon the realities of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. That, from holy ahadith (traditions of Prophet ﷺ) , oceans of realities can be brought out from Mawlana Shaykh’s heart. They are the people of the baab, the caretakers of the door of the realities and knowledges. One for the soul to enter into that reality, and as a result of their struggle, and their strive, the amount of energy that their soul is being dressed with, its by-product, is knowledge.
It means the soul that is lacking a spiritual energy, then is lacking the angelic knowledges. The soul that has the abundant fountains of energy because of the closeness that the soul is moving into that ocean of qudra (power). Angels, energies, is all qudra (power). As the soul dresses from that qudra (power), its by-product are realities. Its intention is not the knowledge, its intention is the nearness to Allah (AJ).
Divinely Presence is in the Heart of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ
And the nearness to Allah (AJ) is in the heart of Prophet ﷺ. For us to traverse to go to Allah (AJ), to be near to Allah (AJ), you have to be a prophet of Allah (AJ). We are not the Prophet of Allah (AJ)! But Allah (AJ) made it to be easy that go to the heart of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, you’ll find my Divinely Presence within that heart, and gives us a door, a baab to Allah’s (AJ) Divinely Presence. And Allah (AJ) says, ‘For every house, there is a correct entry, go through the door. Don’t come through the back. Don’t go through the window. Go through the Baab.’
And that hadith of Prophet ﷺ is that ‘I am the city of knowledge, and Imam Ali (as) is the baab. And take your knowledge from the baab.’
قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : “أَنَا مَدِينَةُ الْعِلْمِ وَعَلَىٌ بَابُهَا، فَمَنْ أَرَادَ الْمَدِينَةَ فَلْيَأْتِ مِنْ بَاْبُهَا.”
Qala Rasolullah (ﷺ) “Ana Madinatul ‘Ilmi wa ‘Aliyyun Babuha, Faman Aradal Madinata falya’ti min Babuha.” (Hasan)
The Prophet (s) said: “I am the city of knowledge and Imam ‘Ali is its gate/gatekeeper, so whoever wants from the city must take from its gate/gatekeeper” [Sound hadith by Imam Tirmidhi in al-Awsat]
Holy Quran is Continuously Emanating from the Soul of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ
Then they teach us that all of holy Qur’an and Manzil al Quran, that the location of Qur’an, holy Qur’an is a continuous flowing. It’s not only the book, that we have a paper manifestation. There was no book in time of Prophet ﷺ. There was no book in the time of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. Prophet ﷺ is walking Qur’an! That Qur’an is alive, is beyond life, beyond the oceans of hayat (ever-living), beyond the ocean of creation. Its location, the soul, the heart of the soul of Prophet ﷺ, is emanating those realities.
All 30 Juz of the Holy Qur’an is in the 7 Verses of Surat Al-Fatiha
So, they say, all of holy Qur’an in 30 juz (parts). 30 juz (parts) in Surat al-Fatiha. So, when they teach qalb (heart), that go to the qalb (heart). Qaf, lam, ba. Qaf, wal Quranil Majeed.
﴾ق ۚ وَالْقُرْآنِ الْمَجِيدِ ﴿١
50:1 – “Qaf, wal Quranil Majeed.” (Surat Qaf)
“Qaf. By the honored Qur’an.” (The Letter Qaf, 50:1)
So, it’s like science formulas. You put qaf equals Qur’anil Majeed. That’s the qaf that was the part of that all of holy Qur’an. Then ulema (scholars) teaching that all Qur’an is in this 30 juz (parts), like a laser it’s coming into 30 juz (parts). Those 30 juz (parts), you’ll find in Surat al-Fatiha. So, Surat Fatiha recited seven times brings the reward of all the recitation of holy Qur’an. Not only that, but every verse of holy Qur’an must be in these seven ayats (verses).
Every Verse of Holy Qur’an about Hamd and Praise comes from
‘Alhamdulillahi Rabbil Alameen’ (1:2)
﴾الْحَمْدُ لِلَّـهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ ﴿٢
1:2 – “Alhamdu lillaahi Rabbil ‘aalameen” (Surat Al-Fatiha)
“Praise be to Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds” (The Opener, 1:2)
So, “Alhamdulillahi rabbil alameen” (Quran 1:2) is then every ayat (verse) of Qur’an that talks about the praise of Allah (AJ), manifests from the spring, because the kalam (words) can’t explain what the heart witnesses. So, you have to bring it down to a level of trying to put it with words. Like an ocean – an ocean coming from where? There must be a source spring, which flows like Niagara Falls and makes that ocean. So, every verse of holy Qur’an that’s from praising, i’s coming from, like Niagara Falls, of ‘Alhumdulillahi rabbil alameen’. (Quran1:2) That verse of ‘Alhumdulillahi rabbil alameen’ — every ocean of hamd, and praise, and description in holy Qur’an, is coming from that. They talk about how it’s condensed. It means that every verse of these seven verses, every ocean of reality of holy Qur’an, its seven like waterfalls, coming and filling oceans of realities. [Pic] [Add Alhamdullilah on top across the river or find a new image]
Fatiha is ‘Wal Hamd’ & Prophet Muhammad’s ﷺ Name is
Liwal Hamd (Flag of Praise)
That Fatiha, is the lam. Fatiha is called the Wal Hamd, wal Hamd. Prophet ﷺ is called Liwal Hamd (Flag of Praise). Suratul Hamd and Prophet’s ﷺ name, one of his names is Liwal Hamd. The flag of praise! So that this holy Qur’an will not be known by anybody in creation, until Allah (AJ) begins to reveal it through the heart and the soul. We’re not talking about physicality, we’re talking about malakut (heavenly realm).
In the world of souls, Allah’s (AJ) eternal reality opens with zuhoor (appearance) of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. So, it means that, that all these realities are coming through that blessed and holy tongue of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, and that’s why the title Liwal Hamd. That this qaf, and all Allah’s (AJ) Izzat and Might, and unimaginable realities of holy Qur’an, it dresses the lam. It blesses the lam. It gives every amr (command) and irada (will), from Surat YaSeen. All My Amr and all My Will is in this reality.
﴾إِنَّمَا أَمْرُهُ إِذَا أَرَادَ شَيْئًا أَن يَقُولَ لَهُ كُن فَيَكُونُ ﴿٨٢
36:82 – “Innama AmruHu idha Arada shay an, an yaqola lahu kun faya koon.” (Surat YaSeen)
“His Command is when He Wills/Intends a thing, He says to it, “Be,” and it is!” (YaSeen, 36:82)
What I want spoken, this tongue will speak. What I don’t want spoken, of my realities, will be the Will of Allah (AJ), known inside that lam. The qaf and lam becomes qul, becomes Allah’s (AJ) Divinely speech, that nothing can carry the qul. There’s no angel that can carry the qul. There’s no Prophet that can carry the qul, except Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. So, Prophet ﷺ is the manifestation of qul. Prophet ﷺ is the manifestation of Allah’s (AJ) Divinely Speech. This ancient tongue of Allah (AJ), its beginning, its end, we don’t know. And that qul, that lam, is directing its speech to the ba.
All Surat Fatiha is in Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem = 19 Letters
It’s all Qur’an, holy Qur’an, in Fatiha. All of Surat al-Fatiha in Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem. It means the secret of everything is in that key of Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem. 19 letters of Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem. 19 letters of Ahlul Bayt: Ali (as), Fatima (as), Hassan (as), Hussain (as), Muhammad ﷺ, peace and blessings be upon them all. These are 19 letters. And 19, wal awwal (first) 1, and 9, wal akhir (last). ‘Awwala Khalqillah wa Khatimin Nabiyeen’, means inheriting from all the realities. ‘I’m the first of Allah’s (AJ) creation, and I’m the khatim, the Seal of all the Prophets of Allah (AJ).’This means that Prophet ﷺ carries that reality of 19.
عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ ، أَنَّ نَبِيَّ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ :كُنْتُ أَوَّلَ النَّبِيِّينَ فِي الْخَلْقِ وَآخِرَهُمْ فِي الْبَعْثِ ”
‘An Abi Hurayra (as), anna Nabiyallahi (saws) qala: “Kuntu awwalan nabiyeena fil khalqi wa aakherahum fil ba’thi.”
“Narrated by Abu Hurirah (ra) that the Prophet (pbuh) said:” I am the first of the prophets in creation and the last prophet in resurrection “.
And the Ahlul Bayt (family of Prophet ﷺ) are dressed with this Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem. So, that qul dresses the ba and gives it izzat and its might, because all of Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem can be found, its power, in the ba. So your write all Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem is in the ba.
Allah (AJ) Said: I am in the Heart of My Believer, Prophet Muhammad ﷺ
And Prophet ﷺ describes, ‘I am the city of knowledges’ which means this qalb that Allah (AJ) describes, that the purified qalb, that ‘nothing can contain me, but the heart of my believer’, is not my qalb (heart), and your qalb (heart), but the qalb (heart) of the heavens, the qalb of malakut (heavenly realm), the qalb of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.
مَا وَسِعَنِيْ لَا سَمَائِيْ ولا اَرْضِيْ وَلَكِنْ وَسِعَنِيْ قَلْبِ عَبْدِيْ اَلْمُؤْمِنْ
“Maa wasi`anee laa Samayee, wa la ardee, laakin wasi’anee qalbi ‘Abdee al Mu’min.”
“Neither My Heavens nor My Earth can contain Me, but the heart of my Believing Servant.” (Hadith Qudsi conveyed by Prophet Muhammad (pbuh))
Allah (AJ) is Hidden Treasure Known through Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ
This reality carries all of My realities. That reality I Created it to be known. I Am a hidden treasure wanting to be known.
كُنْت كَنْزاً مخفيا فَأَحْبَبْت أَنْ أُعْرَفَ؛ فَخَلَقْت خَلْقاً فَعَرَّفْتهمْ بِي فَعَرَفُونِي
“Kuntu kanzan makhfiyya, fa ahbabtu an a’rafa, fa khalaqtu khalqan, fa ‘arraftahum bi fa ‘arafonee.” Hadith Qudsi
Allah (AJ) said: “I was a hidden Treasure then I desired to be known, so I created a creation to which I made Myself known; then they knew Me.”
And Allah (AJ) remains a hidden treasure. La sharik, there’s no approaching Allah (AJ). I will be known by Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. There’s no vicinity in which to approach Allah (AJ), there’s no sharik (partner). There’s no shabih, there’s nothing like onto Allah (AJ). These are all oceans of Al Hayat (Ever-Living), and Allah (AJ) beyond the oceans of hayat. Allah (AJ) has no life and no death. Anything given a life, Allah (AJ) says it was given its companion, which is death. So, God is beyond life and death. This life and death is for us, for our experience. Allah (AJ) said, ‘I created life as an experience for you, so that you’ll taste of death, and you’ll taste of life.’ But Allah (AJ) far beyond that reality.
Awliyaullah Are Dressed By Lisanul Haqq to Become Lisanul Siddiq
So, it means that ba is carrying all the reality because it goes back the other way. The qalb, Quranil Majeed, all of it is dressing the lam, which is a L, Lisan Al Haqq (tongue of turth) is the wal Hamd is the Fatiha. The Fatiha is the dress upon Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. And ulema (scholars) and awliyaullah (saints) know its realities. That’s why they say Bi sirri surat al-Fatiha (by the secret of surat Fatiha). It’s enough for them to make dua (supplication) with Surat al-Fatiha. It encases and encapsulates all of holy Qur’an, and all the ayats of shifa (intercession), and all the ayats (verses) of protection, of blessing, and of mercy are in there. And they recite it with their key, that they’ve been given an authority over that, and been dressed by that surah. They’ve been dressed by the Lisan Al Haqq and they become the Lisan Al Siddiq (tongue of truthful). They inherit from the sahabi which are Lisan Al Siddiq Al Aliya from surat 19, because the gift from the 19. Surat Al Siddiq, Lisan Al Siddiq Al Aliya. Whom Allah (AJ) granted that lisan has been given a tremendous gift.
﴾وَوَهَبْنَا لَهُم مِّن رَّحْمَتِنَا وَجَعَلْنَا لَهُمْ لِسَانَ صِدْقٍ عَلِيًّا (٥٠
19:50 – “Wa wahabna lahum min rahmatina wa ja’alna lahum lisana Sidqin ‘Aliya.” (Surat Maryam)
“And We bestowed of Our Mercy on them, and We granted them lofty honour from/on the tongue of truth.”
It means that all that reality in the ba, and Prophet ﷺ teaching us, come to the baab. Take from the reality of the baab, that is the all the realities of holy Qur’an. All the realities of uloom ul awwaleen wal akhireen (knowledges of the beginning and the end) is at that door.
Come to Awliya (saints), They are the Caretaker of the Baab (Door)
Our life is about moving towards that door, moving towards that reality. That this is description of the qalb (heart), and this is the qalb in which Allah (AJ) wants us to dress. That come, come to that baab. They are the caretakers of that door. The people of the baab (door), their life and their reality which Allah (AJ) gave to them, are the caretakers. Come, come to that baab! Lose your bad characteristics and enter with your heart! And immediately they begin to take you to Lisan Al Haqq. They take you to the love of Prophet ﷺ, the presence of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, so that Prophet ﷺ can dress us from the Divinely Light of Allah (AJ). Dress us from the secrets and the realities of the holy Qur’an.
Falsehood Perishes in the Presence of Truth
That Janab Al Haqq (Divinely Speech), when this reality of Haqq Allah (AJ), that when the truth comes, in the face of every falsehood, falsehood by its nature, is perishing.
﴾وَ قُلْ جَآءَالْحَقُّ وَزَهَقَ الْبَطِلُ، إِنَّ الْبَطِلَ كَانَ زَهُوقًا ﴿٨١
17:81 – “Wa qul jaa alhaqqu wa zahaqal baatil, innal batila kana zahoqa.” (Surat Al-Isra)
“And say, Truth has come, and falsehood has perished. Indeed falsehood, [by its nature], is ever perishing/bound to perish.” (The Night Journey, 17:81)
This means when the truth of Allah (AJ) comes, means all these realities, they’re teaching us, come to this qalb (heart). Be dressed by this qalb. If this qalb begin to dress you, and bless you, is going to dress you from His Divinely Lights. These Divinely Lights are the Haqq (truth) of Allah (AJ). When that Haqq of Allah (AJ) comes, everything that it faces of falsehood, it pushes away. And falsehood by its nature, is always perishing.
Prophet Sulayman (as) Was Given Authority by a Ring from the Sunnah of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ
This means the greatness of Prophet ﷺ is unknown. And most ulema (scholars), they don’t understand it and realize it, that all these realities Allah (AJ) dressed upon it. But why then the qasas (stories) of Qur’an from the prophets? Because Allah (AJ) wants Ahlul Tafakkur (people of contemplation) to understand the reality of Prophet ﷺ.
We said before, the beauty, the light of Prophet ﷺ so majestic, so amazing, that if we begin to understand that greatness, we begin to understand that when the prophets wanted a madad and support, they were given things. So, the big ones, that were understood Sayyidina Sulayman (as), because next month (Rabbiul Awwal), we’re going into the reality of Surat an-Naml, which is 27th surat. 27 and the kingdom, and every event is under 27, as a holy night. And Sayyidina Sulayman (as) is teaching that when he prayed to Allah (AJ), ‘Ya Rabbi, I need a mulk. I need an authority. I have nothing in this dunya (material world) to help people with. I have no authority in this dunya to help people with. And every shaytan (demon) and every badness is attacking me and my people.’ And in his dua (supplication), he was given a ring.
Awliyaullah come and teach us, this is the sunnah of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ because the risalat of Prophet ﷺ and malakut is ancient. I was a prophet before Adam (as) was between clay and water.
كُنْتُ نَبِيًّا وَآدَمُ بَيْنَ الْمَاءِ وَالطِّينِ
“Kuntu Nabiyan wa Adama baynal Maa e wat Teen.”
“I was a Prophet and Adam was between water and clay.” Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)
So, it means that the risalat (messengership) of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ is qadim and ancient in malakut (heavenly realm). And when something has to be given into the dunya (material world) of that time, they were giving from the sunnah (traditions) of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. So that Prophet ﷺ authorized and gave the ring from his sunnah. The sunnah ring of Sayyidina Sulayman (as) gave power over Budala, Nujaba, Nuqaba, Awtad, Akhyar, malaika (angels) wa jinn. It means every authority was given by what? A ring.
We Inherited the Sunnah of Prophet ﷺ For Which All Prophets Were Praying
When the people who don’t understand tabarak (blessings). Last night, we talked about when Allah (AJ) opens your hand, “Tabarakal ladhee biyadihil mulk”.
﴾تَبَارَكَ الَّذِي بِيَدِهِ الْمُلْكُ وَهُوَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ ﴿١
67:1 – “Tabarakal ladhee biyadihil mulku wa huwa ‘ala kulli shay in qadeer.” (Surat Al-Mulk)
“Blessed is He in Whose hands is Dominion/kingdom; and He has Power over all things.” (The Sovereignty, 67:1)
When Allah (AJ) open a tabarak (blessing) on your hand because your heart, your qalb is matching that qalb. That qalb is filled from the Divinely lights of the Divinely presence, lights and powers begin to emanate. Not a power of authority, but Allah’s (AJ) Izzat (might) is dressing upon that servant’s heart and emanating from their hands. When they take a ring from the sunnah of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, their ring has a power. And all the prophets, were begging Allah (AJ) for these tabaraks. And under the nation of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, we’ve been given that free. We’ve been given it as a gift. That’s the greatness of Prophet ﷺ!
People are running away from the sunnah (way of Prophet ﷺ). How many are running towards the sunnah? That the prophets were struggling and begging Allah (AJ), send us, give us something, so that we’ll have an authority, and Allah (AJ) sends from the sunnah Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, here is just a ring, from the rings of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. With that ring, you open everything, just a ring. And we were given Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ in entirety! Like children who don’t understand, who the reality was given. We don’t understand the greatness of what we have, what Allah (AJ) gave. I gave you my most beloved, I gave you the one who carries all my reality in the heavens. That just a ring from Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ will open everything, everything.
‘Ulama and Awliya of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ Inherit from Prophets
That’s why Prophet ﷺ clarified for his sahabi, that my ulama are waris al anbiya (inheritors of prophets) of Bani Israel. To show why, an ihtiram (respect), that if they were, they would be prophets. That’s why he told the companion, ‘If I had a prophet after me, it would be Sayyidina Umar Farooq.’
عَنْ عُقْبَةَ بْنِ عَامِرٍ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُولُ ” لَوْ كَانَ بَعْدِي نَبِيٌّ لَكَانَ عُمَرَ بْنَ الْخَطَّابِ ”
[حديث حَسن رواه أحمد والطِبراني و في صحيح الترمذي (3686)]
‘An ‘Uqbata bin ‘Aamirin qala sami’tu Rasulullahi (saws) yaqulo:”Law kana ba’di nabiyun lakana ‘Umara bin al khattab (as).”
[Hadith Hasan rawahu Ahmad, wal Tibrani, wa fi Sahih al Tirmidhi]
Sayyidina ‘Uqaba son of ‘Aamir said that I heard that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “If there were to be a Prophet after me, it would have been ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab (PBUH).” [Strong hadith narrated by Imam Ahmad, Al Tibrani, and it’s recorded in Sahih Tirmidhi]
But the respect is, there is no prophecy after Prophet ﷺ, but the darajat is so high, from what I dressed them of my sunnah and all my realities, and they are my ashiqeen (lovers). They carry the reality of this qalb (heart) we just described. They are my lovers, don’t you think the lovers of the Sultan of the malakut (heavenly realm), or have power and authority? And Prophet ﷺ described him, they’re like the prophets of Bani Israel (children of Israel).
عُلَمَاءِ أُمَتِيْ كَأَنْبِيَاءِ بَنِيْ إِسْرَائِيلْ
“’Ulama e Ummati ka anbiya e Bani Israel.”
“The scholars of my ummah are like the Prophets of Bani Israel.” Prophet Muhammad (saws)
Allah (AJ) Gave Power to the Hand of Awliya (Saints)
They’re like the prophets of Bani Israel (children of Israel). Why? With the ring, they can move mountains. It means if Prophet ﷺ authorizes their hand, “Innal ladheena yubayi’oonaka innama yubayi’on Allah…” If Allah (AJ) put hand upon their hand, and Prophet (Muhammad) ﷺ hand upon their hand, everything they do is, empowered by the Sultan of the Heavens.
﴾إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يُبَايِعُونَكَ إِنَّمَا يُبَايِعُونَ اللَّـهَ يَدُ اللَّـهِ فَوْقَ أَيْدِيهِمْ ۚ فَمَن نَّكَثَ فَإِنَّمَا يَنكُثُ عَلَىٰ نَفْسِهِ ۖ وَمَنْ أَوْفَىٰ بِمَا عَاهَدَ عَلَيْهُ اللَّـهَ فَسَيُؤْتِيهِ أَجْرًا عَظِيمًا ﴿١٠
48:10 – “Innal ladheena yubayi’oonaka innama yubayi’on Allaha yadullahi fawqa aydeehim, faman nakatha fa innama yankuthu ‘ala nafsihi, wa man awfa bima ‘ahada ‘alayhu Allaha fasayu teehi ajran ‘azheema.” (Surat Al-Fath)
“Indeed, those who give Bayah (pledge allegiance) to you, [O Muhammad] – they are actually giving Bayah (pledge allegiance) to Allah. The hand of Allah is over their hands. So, he whoever breaks his pledge/oath, only breaks it to the detriment/Harm/loss of himself. And whoever fulfills their covenant (Bayah) that which he has promised Allah (AJ) – He will grant him a great reward.” (The Victory, 48:10)
Nabi Musa (as) Opened the Ocean with a Cane from the Sunnah of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ
Then Prophet ﷺ gave them (saints) an ‘asaa (cane). And said Nabi Musa (as) begged for an asaa, and when he got the asaa (cane) of Allah (AJ), this means it came as a sunnah of Prophet ﷺ. And with that asaa, he opened the oceans of difficulty to save his nation, to be faraj, to be free. From what asaa? What Cane? Because the only risalat (messengership) is Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, the only is, the others are all just agents.
﴾فَأَوْحَيْنَا إِلَىٰ مُوسَىٰ أَنِ اضْرِب بِّعَصَاكَ الْبَحْرَ ۖ فَانفَلَقَ فَكَانَ كُلُّ فِرْقٍ كَالطَّوْدِ الْعَظِيمِ ﴿٦٣
26:63 – “Fa awhayna ila Mosa anidrib bi’asaka albahra, fanfalaqa fakana kullu firqin kattawdil ‘aZheem. (Surat Ash-Shu’ara)
“Then We inspired to Moses, “Strike with your staff the sea,” and it parted, and each portion was like a great towering mountain.” (The Poets, 26:63)
All Prophets Accepted Islam and Completed their Faith with Prophet Muhammad ﷺ
There is only one religion of Allah (AJ). There’s only one Prophet of Allah (AJ). The only one believer of Allah (AJ). All of them are agents under the agency, under the reality of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. That’s why Isra wal Miraj (Night of Ascension), for them to understand their marifah (gnosticism), that when my Sultan comes, line up, pray behind him. And when he gives, they prayed Muhammadan salat. They prayed, and in attahiyat, they had to give their shahada to Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. How did they pray? They prayed our Islamic prayer. They had to give their shahada As Salamu Alayka Ayyuhan Nabiy wa Ashhadu an la ilaha illallah, wa ashhadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa Rasulu.
السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ …وَ أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إلاَّ الله وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّدًاعَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ
As Salamu Alayka Ayyuhan Nabiyu …wa Ashhadu an la ilaha illallah, wa ashhadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa Rasulu.
“Peace be upon you O prophet of Allah …I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.”
So, all the Prophets, 124,000 Prophets, they prayed. They accepted Islam. They gave their shahada (testimony of faith), and they reached their marifah (gnosticism). And then Prophet ﷺ left. Why he had to go visit them? He’s meeting with Allah (AJ), but as a rahmah, as a mercy, I’ll complete your faith. Allah (AJ) sent, ‘Go pray for them, give them their shahada. Make them to all be Muslim, complete their deen, and come up to see me.’
The Power of the Cane of Awliya of Prophet Muhammad?
Nabi Musa (as) begged for the asaa and the cane, that with that cane, part the ignorance and the oceans of ignorance (Qur’an, 26:63). Nabi Musa (as) threw his cane, and it became a slayer and destroyer of every magic.
﴾وَأَنْ أَلْقِ عَصَاكَ ۖ فَلَمَّا رَآهَا تَهْتَزُّ كَأَنَّهَا جَانٌّ وَلَّىٰ مُدْبِرًا وَلَمْ يُعَقِّبْ ۚ يَا مُوسَىٰ أَقْبِلْ وَلَا تَخَفْ ۖ إِنَّكَ مِنَ الْآمِنِينَ ﴿٣١
28:31 – “Wa an alqi ‘asaaka falam maa ra aahaa tahtazzu ka annnahaa jaaannunw wallaa mudbiranw wa lam yu’aqqib; yaa Moosaa aqbil wa laa takhaf innaka minal aamineen” (Surat Al-Qasas)
“‘Now do thou throw thy rod!’ but when he saw it moving (of its own accord) as if it had been a snake, he turned back in retreat, and retraced not his steps: O Moses!” (It was said), “Draw near, and fear not: for thou art of those who are secure. (The Stories, 28:31)
What do you think about the cane of the ulema (saintly scholars) of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ? It doesn’t have a magic, it doesn’t have a power to destroy all magic? It doesn’t have a Izzat and a Might from Allah (AJ), that no magic in their presence has any authority? If their hand is from the hand, that upon the hand of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, upon the hand is Allah (AJ). On their hand, they carry the sunnah (way of Prophet ﷺ). And they carry the reality of all the prophets of Bani Israel upon this Earth.
124,000 awliyaullah (saints) must be on this Earth at all times. And they walk in the majesty and the might of the prophets of Bani Israel (children of Israel). They (prophets of bani Israel) were begging Prophet ﷺ for sunnahs. They were begging for an asaa (cane). They were begging for a ring, and we got it as an inheritance, and most ulema (scholars) leave it. Most people don’t wear their ring, most people are leaving all their sunnah of what Prophet ﷺ gave to us because we don’t understand its majesty.
We pray that Allah (AJ) dress us from those lights. Bless us from those lights. Increase us in that love, and in that understanding, so that we can reach to where Allah (AJ) wants us to reach.
