Enter 9 States of Perfection, 9 Sultan al-Awliya,
Sultan az-Zikr of the Golden Chain
Human being in Perfect Symmetry
From the Realities of Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani (Q) as taught by Shaykh Nurjan Mirahmadi.
A’udhu Billahi Minash Shaitanir Rajeem
Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem
I seek refuge in Allah from Satan, the rejected one
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
We pray Yaa Rabb bless us and dress us and that at no time are we anything and we are relying completely on Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s rahma and mercy. Prophet (sallahu alayhi wa sallam)’s rida and satisfaction be upon us and Awliyaullah’s nazar and dress be upon us and throughout holy Qur’an Allah (Azza wa Jal) is describing wa ‘ulul-‘ilmi qaaa-‘imam bil-qist (3:20),
The people who know and Ulul Ahbaab and men of the door, and many many different references, that there are knowledges that are not for commonplace, they are the knowledges that are held in trust by the men of sureties. That they have sincerity and Allah (Azza wa Jal) granted them a sincerity, a yaqeen, where they are custodians of those knowledges.
Difference between Imam, Spiritual Guides, and Ibadur Rahman
Alhamdulillah that we are raised under Sultan al-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani and our beloved shaykh, Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani, Sultan al`Arifeen, `wal Muhaqqiqeen and those who are the bestowers of Divine Lights and realities. One understanding that guidance from the level of an imam at the masjid, alhamdulillah who knows something, and partakes and gives you from those knowledges. And then there are guides who guide us towards these knowledges and realities. And then there are `Ibadur Rahman because the guides can also be from RijalAllah whom Allah (Azza wa Jal) is preparing, that they are truthful servants, they are men in Divinely Presence. It means you can see some as an age of 50, 60 or 70 but in Allah’s eyes they may only be one or two years old in that reality, and you may see somebody as 20, 30 or 40 but they may be very old in that reality. It means that this dunya is but an illusion.
From their teachings and their realities in this holy month of Rajab and the holy month of seclusion, is that they want us to understand that there are many realities which we ask to achieve and to enter in. That yaa Rabbi guide us to those whom You have bestowed Your Knowledges, in which you asked for us yaa Rabbi that to: hold tight to the rope of Allah (Azza wa Jal) and don’t let go, don’t break apart.
وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللَّـهِ جَمِيعًا وَلَا تَفَرَّقُوا
3:103 “Wa’tasimo bihab lillahi jamee’an wa la tafarraqo.”(Surat Al ‘Imran)
“And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not separate.” (Holy Quran)
9 Sultan ul Awliya in Naqshbandia Way have Sultan uz Zikr
This rope, these realities that they are khawas and elite souls in Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s Divinely Presence. And alhamdulillah from Naqshbandiyya til `Aliyya, the Golden Chain which is a reality and a gift from Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). There are nine Sultanul Awliya within that Chain. Allah (Azza wa Jal) dressed them from these realities and blessings and what sets them apart from others, and from humanity in Creation, is that they have Sultan az Zikr. Allah (Azza wa Jal) dressed them from a secret in which they breathe in and out and in every breath realities and secrets of Holy Qur’an. From one to 12,000 different levels of understanding for every huroof of Holy Qur’an. Every nafas they breathe in is filled with Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s secrets and every breath that is exhaled out is filled with Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s secrets. Means it`s the highest level of guidance that they want us to achieve. That yaa Rabbi send us into that association!
Ibadur Rahman عباد الرحمن Carry the Ayn ع of Aleem عَلِيم, Ancient Knowledge
Tariqa is based on the association but not only the association of the physical, that keep our arwah our soul amongst with those whom You are pleased with yaa Rabbi who are from `Ibaad ur Rahmaan and the `allamal Qur’an khalaqal insaan (55:2),
الرَّحْمَـٰنُ ﴿١﴾ عَلَّمَ الْقُرْآنَ ﴿٢﴾ خَلَقَ الْإِنسَانَ ﴿٣﴾ عَلَّمَهُ الْبَيَانَ ﴿٤
55:1-4 – “Ar Rahmaan. ‘Allamal Qur’an. Khalaqal Insaan.‘Alama hul Bayan.” (Surat Ar Rahman)
“The Most Merciful. (1) It is He Who has taught the Qur’an. (2) He has created Man. (3) “He has taught him distinct (eloquence) speech.” (Holy Quran, The Beneficent 55: 1-4)
That reality in which You taught them the bayan. Allah (Azza wa Jal) says: I taught their speech, I dressed their reality. These are not like regular insaan. They carry the reality of Holy Qur’an because everything to its darajat (level). Every reality Allah (Azza wa Jal) dressed the soul with `allamal Qur’an but whom Allah (Azza wa Jal) granted the `Ayn of `abd and Allah (azza wa Jal) made them to be `abd, servant of the Divinely Presence, they carry the secret of the `Ayn. They carry the secret of Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s Ancient Knowledges.
From Sayyidina `Umar, `Uthman, `Ali and `Abdullah, known to us as Sayyidina Abu Bakr as-Siddiq. Means the Sahabi were all Ahlul `Ayn. All that reality, Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s Ancient Knowledges were dressed upon their soul. Those were qadeem (ancient), that were dressed upon that, and from those realities Allah (Azza wa Jal) sent 9 such precious souls within Naqshbandiyya til `Aliyya.
Find the Ulul Albab (People of the Door) – Gate Keepers
And throughout Holy Qur’an He is giving us a hint that these realities, these secrets, are not known except by the men of understanding. Men can be men and women but describes a mature state of the soul. None know it but the people of the Door.
3:190-191 – “Inna fee khalqis Samawati wal ardi wakhtilafil layli wan nahari, la ayatin li Olel albab. (190) Alladheena yadhkurona Allaha qiyaman wa qu’odan wa ‘ala junobihim, wa ya tafakkarona fee khalqis Samawati wal ardi, Rabbana ma khalaqta hadha batilan subhanaka faqina ‘adhaban nar.(191)” (Surat Ali ‘Imran)
“Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the night and the day are signs for those People of understanding (People of the Door of Knowledge). (190) Who remember Allah while standing or sitting or [lying] on their sides and Contemplate the creation in the heavens and the earth, [saying], “Our Lord, You did not create this aimlessly; exalted are You [above such a thing]; then protect us from the punishment of the Fire (Holy Quran 3:190-191)
What door? So there must be not a physical door but a spiritual door which Allah (Azza wa Jal) inspires us to move into their association. Find these door keepers and key-keepers. That if you find those associations and those realities, to enter into those associations and their realities because their associations are not like other associations. Their khalwa and seclusions are not like other people’s seclusions and khalwas.
9 Sultan ul Awliya of Naqshbandiya tul Aliya
That to achieve those realities in life they begin to teach one such door when theyenter in through Sultan al-Awliya and they go into this circle [Shaykh points to a circle with numbers 1-9 and Sultan al-Awliya is at number 9, the entry point]…
This (illustration) is something meant for our understanding, this is nothing to be worshiped. People come on the internet and say, “O these people are crazy, they are saying something about worship here.” No, no, this is the complete worshipness of Allah (Azza wa Jal).
This is talking about a Diwan, an association of souls in Paradise, like rooms. Your soul may be just in a general area of Paradise but there are darajats (Stations). Where Allah (Azza wa Jal) says: to everything there are maqams, Maqam Siddiq’s. That these maqams are like rooms, when you enter into them, the arwah, the souls within that room are going to be different in their darajat.
You Must have Permission to be in Heavenly Associations
One such association, their souls are dressed with Sultan az-Zikr. We pray that Allah (Azza wa Jal) takes us into their association. If Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) gives permission for a soul to enter into those shaykhs. That I am allowing you to enter into those shaykhs, that I am granting you for your soul from Malakoot to enter into that room, and into that Diwan, that association within the Malakoot, within the Heavens. Your body will be inspired in dunya to meet such an association and to meet the key-holders of that reality but must come by permission of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi wa sallam). From Allah (Azza wa Jal) permission to Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and from Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) the order goes to ulul amr that guide the one to that reality. That soul will be placed within that arwah, and that Diwan.
The 9 Sultan ul Awliya of Naqshbandiya tul Aliya
They begin to teach there are 9 sultans within that circle, their constant nazar (gaze) is upon that soul and bringing the reality of Holy Qur’an that, `hold tight to the rope`, the soul is deep in that reality, and don’t separate.
وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللَّـهِ جَمِيعًا وَلَا تَفَرَّقُوا ۚ
3:103 “Wa’tasimo bihab lillahi jamee’an wa la tafarraqo.”(Surat Al ‘Imran)
“And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not separate.” (Holy Quran)
Wa koonu ma-as sadiqeen, [9:119].
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّـهَ وَكُونُوا مَعَ الصَّادِقِينَ ١١٩
9:119 – “Ya ayyuhal ladheena amanoo ittaqollaha wa kono ma’as sadiqeen.” (Surat at Tawba)
“O you who have believed, fear Allah and be with those who are true (in words and deed).” (The Repentance 9:119)
Not only sadiqeen of dunya (material world) but whom Allah (Azza wa Jal) has favoured in Akhirah, (hereafter) they are continuously under the nazar of that reality, to be rushd (grow), to bring that soul towards what Allah (Azza wa Jal) wants to grant it of its realities. It means their treasure the gift that Allah (Azza wa Jal) has given to them, through their nazar, through their light, they are constantly conveying that light in that Diwan!
Reality of Number 9 is Complete Submission
As soon as they enter in, the shaykh at position number 1, because everything is in the reality of 9 is complete submission. The math of 9 is amazing, 9 multiplied by anything makes itself to be 9. It brings it into the fana and hudoor completely annihilates it and makes it from the reality of a 9.
1. Shaykh at Position 1 Teaches Tawheed – Oneness of Allah (aj)
The shaykh at position 1 is teaching that if you come into that circle, in that association, the responsibility of that shaykh is to convey complete Tawheed, that if at position number 1. That shaykh is teaching the soul constant, constant, reminder upon the soul about the Oneness of Allah (Azza wa Jal), that everything in your life is based on laa ilaaha ilAllah, laa ilaha ilAllah, (there is no God but Allah).
That Allah’s hand is upon everything, that everything is coming from Allah (Azza wa Jal), you don’t have to look left or right. It means every reality is coming from that ocean of Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s Qudra and Power.
And as they are conveying that reality, then they begin to teach and you see how the 1 and the 18 (at the same position on the diagram) and the 8 and the 1 that everything is in perfect symmetry, which opens many different realities and understandings. This is beginning at Tawheed.
2. Shaykh at Position 2 – Teaches Reality of Wahid – Nur Muhammad (saws)
Then the shaykh at position number 2 is constantly inspiring within the soul that theunderstanding of Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s Oneness, and Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s Wahid, Oceans of Oneness. Allah (Azza wa Jal) is uniquely Ahad, and Allah (Azza wa Jal) has created the reality and the Noor of Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) as the unique Wahid. There is nothing like unto Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and there is nothing like laa ilaaha ilAllah. And the shaykh at position 2 wants us to understand there is nothing like Muhammadun Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam).
It is the reflection of 1 and 1; 1 of Allah (Azza wa Jall) laa ilaaha ilAllah that is the power of 11, because in 11 you see the two ones, and 11 is 1 and 1 which is 2. The Oneness of Allah (Azza wa Jal) is a reflection to the oneness of Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). That 2 stands for the Bahr al-Qudra, the Ocean of Power, the Ocean of Annihilation, where everything is in that ocean of atomic power, it is just energy. Everything manifests in the physical world but is only a reflection of the Oceans of Power.
It is a hologram. These atoms are moving making a hologram, but those atoms and their movements are from an Ocean of Power. That Ocean of Power is existing giving the world a form, an illusion of its existence. If Allah stopped the Zikr, stopped the movement, the whole illusion would have collapsed. All the atoms would have collapsed, all the space within an atom is empty, and everything drops into its nothingness.
Then, a constant reminder of the greatness of Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). A constant reminder that everything is from this Bahr al-Qudra (ocean of power, that is teaching you of your origin. That Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s oneness, Allah (Azza wa jal’s) Power. That Allah (Azza wa Jal) is laa sharik (Allah has no partner), nothing from Allah (Azza wa Jal) but, Allah (Azza wa Jal) is the source of everything. That you are not going to be like Allah (Azza wa Jal), but Allah’s secret is dressed number 2, the secret of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi wa sallam). That dressed the Bahr al-Qudra, dressed that Number 2 and the reality of the soul of Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam).
From that relationship Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) describes, “and creation is from me.” [Shaykh points to the next number]
3. Shaykh at Position 3 – Teaches about the Birth of Light and Creation
The secret of the number 3 and the shaykh at number 3 begins to teach the secret of that number. That 3 has to do with the birth of light, that your soul is from 3, your existence is from 3. That from Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam)’s reality of Bahr al-Qudra, a light and an energy comes out and makes you to be the third, which is the Adamic reality. Allah (Azza wa Jal) from laa ilaaha ilAllah, Muhammadun Rasulullah and then Sayyidina Adam, where Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) described, “I was a Rasul before Adam’s form came,” because the light of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) is based on that 2.
كُنْتُ نَبِيًّا وَآدَمُ بَيْنَ الْمَاءِ وَالطِّينِ
“Kuntu Nabiyan wa Adama baynal Maa e wat Teen.”
“I was a Prophet and Adam was between clay and water.” Prophet Muhammad (saws)
So then 3 comes and it is the birth of the soul, and every creation comes from that light of 3.
4. Shaykh at Position 4 – Teaches that our Form is made up of 4 Elements
From that soul of 3, then the shaykh at position number 4 begins to teach us about the realities of this dawaam, this Earth. That your form is based on these 4 elements, that you have 3 states of mass and a state of gas upon your reality. And these 4 elements are making you to have a form. Don’t be tricked by these 4 elements, don’t be locked upon these 4 elements, but understand the use of these 4 elements: earth, water, fire and wind.
We are Created from Purified Soil – Min Teen that Balances Water and Fire
Begin to inspire within your existence you are, and the earth that Allah (Azza wa Jal) has placed upon you is the great mizaan, the great scale of your reality; that within you, you have a water reality which are from the angels, and within you you have a reality of the fire which are from the jinn.
So everyone has a jinn reality within them and an angelic reality within them, and the great mizaan that Allah (Azza wa Jal) said: I created the mizaan, thescale, and from ‘Ibaad ar-Rahmaan that mizaan from Surat ar Rahmaan is describing it as min teen.
55:7 – ” Was samaa rafa’aha wa wada’al Meezan.” (Surah ar Rahman)
“And the heaven He raised hight and set up the balance (of justice).” (Holy Quran, The Beneficient)
That is why last night we were describing teen and you said, “No shaykh, it is Figs, teen تين.” No, khalaqal insaan min teen طِين .
وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنسَانَ مِن سُلَالَةٍ مِّن طِينٍ ١٢
23:12 – “Wal laqad khalaqna al Insana min sulalatin min Teen.” (Surat al Mumineen)
“And certainly did We create man from an extract of clay (water and dirt).” (The Believers 23:12)
That We created you, insaan, min teen; مِن طِين meem, noon, and teen طِين that from a purified soil. ‘min’ مِن , Meem, Noon is from the Muhammadan Noor, that We created you insaan with ‘a very pure soil’. Its reality was astonishing to the angels, that this reality of earth it can carry angelic light, because you throw water onto earth and greens sprouts, flowers sprout. So it has the ability to take an angelic light and grow with it.
It has an ability that when fire comes, you throw dirt. That is why tayammum is halal for us because the dirt [that is within] you can burn the shayateen (devils). Also from dirt to dirt, you shall return that dead body. It means the tayammum and why tayammum is (permitted) for us? because Allah (Azza wa Jal) (says) you have a dirt, and also the secret of dirt can put out the fire of Shaytan, and your water can put out the fire of Shaytan.
Human Beings are in a Perfect Symmetry
So then the shaykh at position 4 is teaching that balance your dunya (material world). Because you see this is the symmetry, that the 2 will open the reality of this 7. [The diagram is vertically symmetrical] This Bahr al-Qudrah is a doorway, at position number 2 because it is crossing the heart, the point of the heart.
I think Leonardo Da Vinci is the one who copied this and took it as his own and became the man of intellect? They were studying in Spain and for them knowledge was forbidden, so they used to go for `uloom (knowledge) to the Muslims and take all their knowledges, steal it and come back and say it was theirs. And they would put a naked figure (over each position) to make it disfigured so that Shaytan would overtake it. Now Muslims see this and say, “Why are you coping them?” Ya akhee (O brother), this is from Islam, this is from Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), they (Muslims/Awliyaullah) were teaching them the reality.
All Awliyaullah are teaching us that you are in a perfect symmetry [Shaykh indicates, right side and left side of a person], and that if you understand this Bahr al-Qudra, it is going to open the powers of 7 and that you have 7 holy openings and we have not gotten into that yet.
Number 2 and Secret of number 27 and 72
But that is why Isra wal Mi`raj [Prophet’s journey to heavens] is on the 27th [of Rajab]. This is not just a random number where Allah (Azza wa Jal) says I like the number 24, no, no, I will provide 27, I like it better, let’s bring everyone up on the 27th. There is a secret where Allah (Azza wa Jal) is teaching programmers that everything is perfectly numbered,…
لِّيَعْلَمَ أَن قَدْ أَبْلَغُوا رِسَالَاتِ رَبِّهِمْ وَأَحَاطَ بِمَا لَدَيْهِمْ وَأَحْصَىٰ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ عَدَدًا ٢٨
72:28 – Liya’lama an qad ablaghoo risalati rabbihim wa ahata bima ladayhim wa ahsa kulla shay in ‘adada. “ (Surat al Jinn)
“That He may know that they have conveyed the messages of their Lord; and He has encompassed whatever is with them and has enumerated all things in number. ” (The Jinn 72:28)
Everything is upon a program, everything has a code, when the codes are locked and unlocked then all its realities can be bestowed. That door to the heart and Divinely Presence is based on the understanding of that 2. And in the perfect understanding of symmetry, that if you open from dunya 27 and move, you are actually moving towards the reality of 72. That is why it is a reflection, that the door on Earth is 27 but 27 is a reflection of 72 in Heavens.
Reality of 72 Shuhada and 1 Imam in Karbal:
Ahlul Bayt’s Intercession of Ummah
There are 72 Shuhada-e-Karbala and one Imam, because each of those Shuhada were a piece of the lock for the intercession of the Nation of Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) described my Nation will be in 72 tribes all of them will be wrong except one.
But the greatness of Sayyidina Muhammad saying, “Ummati Ummati, I am not going to let them go to jahannum no matter how wrong they are. They are going to be intercessors who will intercede, who will sacrifice, and their ‘amal (action) will be pleasing to Allah (Azza wa Jal) and inshaAllah Allah (Azza wa Jal) will grant them the intercession. So it’s not a random number that there were 72 Shuhada and that Imam Hussain (alayhi ‘s-salaam) represents the the Imam, the Oneness. Means that 27 is a reflection of the door in Paradise which is 72.
Understand your 4 Elements
Water – So then the shaykh at position number 4 is teaching us about our elements. That if you don’t understand your water then how are you going to nourish the water within you, your angelic reality? That water requires Zikr. How are you going to bring that water into purity? What you eat and drink is going to determine the cleanliness of that water; the angelic reality within you.
Fire – What you do with your ghadab, your anger and your characteristics are going to determine the fire within you. If the fire grows too strong it will overtake that insaan and they become naraani (fiery). If the water grows strong and the ‘angelic fire’ grows within that being, they become noorani (illuminated). And Allah (Azz wa Jal) says: that is your scale in life.
Wind: Allah (aj) says, I blew from My wind, My nafas into you, gave you the secret of life,
Now you balance your existence, bring the fire down and increase the Noor and the angelic reality. They are then a balanced insaan (Human being). They are making us understand the rijaal (men of God) with the knowledge they are conveying. They are constantly inspiring, that all the water you are washing with has a tremendous angelic reality.
Your nafas and your breath was the gift from Allah (Azza wa Jal). How can you smoke and contaminate yourself? How can you harm your inner being and your reality? Then you begin to understand all your elemental reality.
5. Shaykh at Position 5 – Teaches Hidayat (Guidance)
Ha =5 (From abjad table) = Hidayat (Guidance)
Then the shaykh at position number 5, and it is a continuous process, the position 5 begins to teach hidayat (guidance). That we are the people of guidance and understand the guidance, and the only way to achieve guidance is to understand your senses. These 5 senses that Allah gave us, they are the way and the door towards the Divinely Presence.
Means if you can’t hear the message and hear the teaching you are already lost. There is no way you can be seeing if you are not hearing. If you are not understanding how to hear the reality, how to see the reality, how to touch and understand the importance of touch; where now the dunya is only sexual touch, they only want a temporary satisfaction.
Allah (Azza wa Jal) says then you have to control that touch and bring it into your spiritual touch. Only through hardship and difficulty your soul begins to feel the touch, you don’t need the body to want to touch everything, but you need the soul to begin to touch. When the body has been through hardship the power of the soul becomes much more powerful.
Abstain/Fast through 5 Senses to Open the 5 Senses of Your Soul
Means when they abstain and fast Ramadan, from these shaykhs they begin to teach, “It is a perpetual fasting,” that fast with your hearing, don’t hear too much negative, it is blocking and Shaytan is blocking your soul because it is like bricks on your ears. If you abstain and hear salawaat on Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and hear Holy Qur’an, it is directly affecting your heart.
If you control your vision and lower your gaze and contemplate and meditate, and constantly trying to open the heart, the physical eyes will begin to be blocked, and the spiritual eyes of the soul will begin to open. But if you are too much toward your physical eyes your spiritual eye will never open. The sense of touch that you don’t need the physical touch and begin to lower the physical touch so that the spiritual touch (opens).
Zikrullah and Salawat is Nurishment for the Soul
If all of that is opening then Allah (Azza wa Jal) begins to train your dhawq, your taste. That the taste you have for dunya (material world) will begin to dry and Allah will begin to open the taste of Akhirah (hereafter). Where you find no greater pleasure than Zikrullah (remembrance of Allah), where you find no greater pleasure than salawaat on Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam).
Other people say, “How do you people sit for so long?” because for you it is not food, what can I do? You are struggling through it. For me it is dinner time, every dessert, every bounty is being fed through that reality, and we could sit for hours. You go some places their hadrah is four to five hours long and still they are not tired from it because Zikrullah tatmain al-quloob,
13:28 – “Alladheena amano wa tatma’innu Qulobu hum bidhikrillahi, ala bi dhikrillahi tatma’innul Qulob.” (Surat ar Ra’d)
“Those who believe, and whose hearts find satisfaction in the remembrance of Allah. For without doubt in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find satisfaction.” (Holy Quran, the Thundar 13:28)
More than that, it is a food and nourishment for them. They are being fed from Divinely Presence because Allah (Azza wa Jal) opened the reality of their tongue. That the food you eat is one (thing) but I begin to feed upon your tongue, from all your Zikr and from all these worshiping and praising will be a sustenance that will be pouring upon your reality.
6. Shaykh at Position 6 – Teaches about و Waw = Wadood (Love)
Then the shaykh at position number 6 is teaching, because now you see the reflection of 36 [Shaykh indicates on the diagram the 3 and 6 directly opposite to each other], that your qadam in life should be based on Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). The Holy Qur’an directs you to Surat number 36, Surat Yaseen (saws). That yaa Rabbi my life should be based on Sayyidina Yaseen (alayhi ‘s-salaat o salaam). Qadam as-Siddiq that my whole life is to move in the path of Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and that is why its reflection is 63. Prophet (sallalahu alayhi wa sallam)’s life on dunya was 63 years. Means it is opening its reflection for us, that your life, your qadam (to be) on 36, on the way of Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), and the real lifespan for a Muslim is not 100 but it is 63. It is in the life span of Prophet (sallalahu alayhi wa sallam).
Rreality of al Wadood – Everything is based on Love
The shaykh at position number 6 is beginning to teach that that reality of 3 and 3 is the reality of love and wadud. That 6 is the secret that opens all realities. That 6×19=114 which are the (number of) surahs in Holy Qur’an, means that reality opens with the power of wadud, opens with the power of love.
The shaykh at position 6 is teaching that the heart of Holy Qur’an is Surat Yaseen, the heart that is moving towards Divinely Presence, inkuntum tohiboonallah fatabioonee,
قُلْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تُحِبُّوْنَ اللَّـهَ فَاتَّبِعُوْنِيْ يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللَّـهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوْبَكُمْ ۗ وَاللَّـهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ ٣١
3:31 – “Qul in kuntum tuhibbon Allaha fattabi’oni, yuhbibkumUllahu wa yaghfir lakum dhunobakum wallahu Ghaforur Raheem.” (Surah Surat Al ‘Imran)
“Say, [O Muhammad], “If you should love Allah, then follow me, [so] Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.” (Holy Quran 3:31)
Fatabi’oni, to be from tabi`yeen, is to be from the people of feet on the path of Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), and teaching if you take truly the path of Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), everything about you should be about Divinely Love, and everything should be blossoming from that love. And that Allah (Azza wa Jal) loves His Creation. Whether it is good or bad, Allah loves them and it has nothing to do with you. Your only job in life is khayr and goodness; convey goodness to people, don’t judge people, that is for Allah (Azza wa Jal) because He loves His Creation.
We Make Zikrullah to show We are Grateful to Allah
That is why we talked last night about Surat ar-Rahmaan. If you read you begin to cry in this month because Allah (Azza wa Jal) says: I gave you the rain fa bi ayyi`alai rabbikuma tukazzibaan,
what kind of an ungrateful person (are you)? Why? because He wants to be praised. Some people send texts on the website that, “Why do you say ‘Allah, Allah, Allah’ so many times?” Read Surat ar-Rahmaan, Allah (Azza wa Jal) says: you should be thanking me for the date, for the pomegranate, for the sky, for the moon, for the oceans, for the grass. You should be in perpetual praising for what I have given to you, I want to be praised. I want to be acknowledged for this Creation that I created and I gave it to you as a gift. Imagine what I want from the creation of Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) as a gift for you? Wa ma arsalnaka illa rahmatan lil `aalameen.
وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا رَحْمَةً لِّلْعَالَمِينَ ١٠٧
21:107 – “Wa maa arsalnaka illa Rahmatan lil’alameen.” (Surat Al Anbiva)
“And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds.” (The Prophets 21:107)
Allah wants to be praised, Allah wants to be celebrated, Allah wants to be loved. Everything is based on love just like we want. If you want to do good, you want to come home and hear someone say, “Thank you.” After you make a big meal, the person who did all of that you say, “I want to thank you.” Allah (Azza wa Jal) says, “I want you to thank Me, praise Me, acknowledge everything I have given to you,” that is all based on love.
And the people who have no love all they say, “Why do you have to sit down to thank Allah? Why do you have to make Zikr of Allah? Why in the house of Allah you have to mention Allah?” That is where the Nation is now.
2:114 – “Wa man azhlamu mimman mana’a Masajida Allahi an yudhkara feeha Asmuhu, wasa’a fee kharabiha, …” (Surat al Baqarah)
“And who are more unjust than those who prevent the name of Allah from being mentioned in His mosques/(His House) and strive toward their destruction…” (Holy Quran)
Everything in Creation is in Praising of Allah
These people of reality are teaching everything is (based) on love, I can’t even imitate a flower where Allah (Azza wa Jal) says yusabbihu bihamdihi,
تُسَبِّحُ لَهُ السَّمَاوَاتُ السَّبْعُ وَالْأَرْضُ وَمَن فِيهِنَّ ۚ وَإِن مِّن شَيْءٍ إِلَّا يُسَبِّحُ بِحَمْدِهِ وَلَـٰكِن لَّا تَفْقَهُونَ تَسْبِيحَهُمْ ۗ إِنَّهُ كَانَ حَلِيمًا غَفُورًا ٤٤
17:44 – “Tusabbihu lahus samawatus sab’u wal ardu wa man fee hinna wa in min shayin illa yusabbihu bihamdihi wa lakin la tafqahoona tasbeehahum innahu kana haleeman ghafoora.” (Surat Al Isra)
“The seven heavens and the earth and whatever is in them exalt [praises] Him. And there is not a thing except that it exalts [Allah] by His praise, but you do not understand their [way of] exalting. Indeed, He is ever Forbearing and Forgiving.” (Holy Quran, The Night Journey 17:44)
That every Creation other than the talking insaan (Human being) is praising Me with a praise you can’t imagine. The flower when it is given life is praising. Those who go into seclusion or even in dunya if Allah opens their heart, they hear. They go in front of a tree, they can hear the Zikr of the tree, the Zikr that Allah (Azza wa Jal) gave the tree.
The real – Teb in nubuwwa, the prophetic medicine – is that they (saints) can sit in a field and every grain and every bush and every flower will give its Zikr. And teach why Allah created me, either I am a poison and should not be eaten by you, or through me is a shifa and healing. Both are good because you destroy cancer with poison. Then you put from jalaali tajalli to jamaali tajalli.
And everything has a Zikr, it knows its identity, it knows its purpose and why Allah created it. Allah says: you are jahoolan (ignorant).
You people with big heads, you are jahool (ignorant). My flower knows itself, My flower knows its reality, My flower knows how it is supposed to be saving you and it is continuously praising Me, thanking Me.
And we are the people who say, “Why do we have to praise and say thanks to Allah (Azza wa Jal) so much? Can we do it like in ten minutes! Do we have to do it everyday? Can we do it once a week?” So we are not better than nature. Allah (Azza wa Jal) created all of that reality and they all know their reality wishing to depart that upon insaan.
7. Shaykh at Position 7 – Teaches Paradise Realities, the 7 Names
The shaykh at position number 7 is then teaching now towards the Paradise realities, that you have to know your 7 names. Anyone who deems themself as a spiritual guide they come under the hadith of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) “Who knows himself will know his Lord”.
مَنْ عَرَفَ نَفْسَهْ فَقَدْ عَرَفَ رَبَّهُ
“Man ‘arafa nafsahu faqad ‘arafa Rabbahu”
“Who knows himself, knows his Lord.” Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ)
Before you can know who Allah (Azza wa Jal) is, you have to know who you are stuck with, yourself, what are your 7 names in these presences? Everyone has a name for every Paradise. When Allah (Azza wa Jal) created Paradises He put your arwah in all of them. He put your soul in jahannum, a portion of that soul to watch its position in jahannum and 7 darajats of Paradise. The soul is not in jahannum, but a place in which it looks to the chair, that if you do bad this is your place, save yourself from that place.
The shaykh at position number 7 is teaching that reach towards your 7 names.With all that has been opening for you that take a way of tafakkur, use the 4 and the faculty of your 4, open the power of your 3 and your soul. Means use your senses, understand your name in each of these Paradises, reach towards these heavenly openings.
Then through their tafakkur they begin to open the 7 holy openings of their face; the two ears, the two eyes, the two nostrils and the tongue, Lisaan al-Haqq, Lisan as-Siddiq al `Aliyya. As those 7 points are opening, the shaykh at position 7 is also inspiring the 7 lataaifs of your heart that at the same time open your heart, open the crown of your creation, the two are going to bring all these realities.
8. Shaykh at Position 8 – Teaches about the Ocean of Ever-living
The shaykh at position number 8 is teaching Bahr al-Hayat (Ocean of ever-living) that your soul now is in the oceans of hayat and eternity.
9. Shaykh at Position 9 is the Sultan ul Awliya – He Teaches Annihilation
The shaykh at position 9 is Sultan al-Awliya. Means then all of that perfection is constantly brought before Sultan al-Awliya and Sultan al-Awliya is then responsible to bring that soul into annihilation because 9 is the perfection. When that soul reaches into the presence, the real presence, and the arwah of Sultan al-Awliya then they’re being dressed and blessed by these realities. That soul is taught how to annihilate itself and to be nothing, to be brought into the presence of the Oneness of Allah (Azza wa Jal) and the oneness of Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam).
It is the binary code that you cannot be anything in Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s Presence. Allah is ‘on’ and you are ‘off’. When Allah (aj) sends you away you are ‘on’. They teach you that be nothing and move into Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s greatness and oceans of power.
Sultan al-Awliya (Mawlana Shaykh Nazim) used to say, “I am nothing, I am nothing, I am nothing.” But if Allah turns me ‘on’ I am 124,000 darajats, that are behind me.” Means he was teaching that when you take a path of humility to be nothing, you become 0.000124 like I am the lowest, most humble of Allah’s Creation, but if Allah flips the switch and moves the decimal to the other direction, all 124,000 Awliyaullah (saints) their power is within the Sultan al-Awliya. If Allah flips the switch he carries all the power.
This is what Sultan al-Awliya is teaching that, to dress you with a Qudra (power) and continuously teach you to shatter, to shatter, to shatter, to be nothing, be nothing, be nothing. In Your nothingness, Allah dresses you from His Everythingness.
We pray that Allah (Azza wa Jal) dresses us from these holy lights and these holy blessings of the month of Rajab and opening inshaAllah in the next week and a half Laylatul Isra and Mi’raj.
Subhana rabbika rabbil `izzati `amma yasifoon wa salaamun `alal mursaleen wal hamdulillahi rabbil `aalameen. Bi hurmatil Muhammad al-Mustafa wa bi sirri surat al-Fatiha.
