Know Thyself: Self-Realization in Safar
From the Realities of Mawlana (Q) as taught by Shaykh Nurjan Mirahmadi.
A’uzu 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
Alhamdulillahi Rabbil ‘aalameen, was salaatu was salaamu ‘alaa Ashraful Mursaleen, Sayyidina wa Mawlana Muhammadul Mustafa ﷺ. Madad ya Sayyidi ya Rasulul Kareem, Ya Habibul ‘Azeem, unzur halana wa ishfa’lana, ‘abidona bi madadikum wa nazarekum.
“Atiullaha wa atiur Rasul wa Ulil amre minkum.”
﴾أَطِيعُواللَّه وَأَطِيعُوٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ … ﴿٥٩
4:59 – “…Atiullaha wa atiur Rasula wa Ulil amre minkum…” (Surat An-Nisa)
“… Obey Allah, Obey the Messenger, and those in authority among you…” (The Women, 4:59)
A reminder to myself, ana abdukal ‘ajeez, wa dayeef, wa miskin, wa zhalim, wa jahl, and but for the grace of Allah (AJ) that we are still in existence. Bi Madadakum an Nazarakum Sayyidi Ya Rasul Kareem Ya Habeeb ul Azeem. Madad Ya Sayyidi Ya Sultanul Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah Faiz ad Daghestani (Q), Sultanul Awliya Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al Haqqani (Q), Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani (Q), Shaykh Adnan Kabbani (Q), Shaykh Muhammad Adil (Q), Abdul Khaliq al-Ghujdawani (Q), Sahibul Zaman Sayyidina Muhammad al Mahdi (as), Ruhullah Sayyidina Isa (as), Saifullah Sayyidina Ali (as), thumma Sayyidina Abu Bakr as Siddiq (as), Sayyidina Umar (as), Sayyidina Uthman (as), Imam al-Hassan (as), Imam al-Hussain (as), Sayyidatina Fatima Zahra (as) wa ila sayiri sadatina wa Siddiqin. Al Fatiha.
Safar is Dressed by Allah’s (AJ) Majestic Power
InshaAllah, the blessings of the holy month of Safar, and within the last 10 days of Safar, that opening the lights, inshaAllah. Allah (AJ) give us a life in which to see Rabi’ul Awwal and the blessed month of the birth of Sayyidina Muhammad ul-Mustafa ﷺ. That, Allah (AJ) dress us and bless us with those lights. The last Wednesday, this coming Wednesday, will be the last Wednesday of Safar. Safar is described as a heavy month because Allah’s (AJ) dressing is a dress of haybah and majestic lights.
In Safar Everything Crooked Becomes Straightened
These majestic lights, they cause everything crooked to become straightened. It means anything of Allah’s (AJ) majestic jalali dress, it corrects and burns every type of difficulty. So, in a month in which Allah’s (AJ) majestic dress is dressing creation then imagine creation whom they fill themselves with bad character and all sorts of negative energies around themselves. This majestic dress – the truth and false they don’t come together, they don’t peacefully coexist. The truth of the heavens when it comes with such a light and with such an energy it begin to burn every falsehood. Hence this understanding of what people consider to be difficulty.
﴾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)
We Find Ourselves in Difficulty Because of Our Own Negativity
Because we fill ourself with negative energies and negative surroundings, when Allah’s (AJ) majestic lights come, ‘Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as is in heaven.’ It means Allah’s (AJ) Will is coming in the majestic and jalali dress of Divinely Lights that begins to cause every type of difficulty for insan (human being) and the burning of all shayateen (devils). As a result, the shayateen become very angry, very hyperactive and all sorts of difficulties upon the Earth. We pray that Allah (AJ) dress us and bless us and protect us with the love of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ from these negativities within ourself and the ricochet of other people’s negativities that maybe indirectly coming to affect us.
Can I be heard? (Voice from the other side: Yes). Okay, because I don’t, I’m not hearing any feedback or I don’t know if anyone’s even there. At the end maybe they will say, ‘Oh it wasn’t even connected.’ (Voice: MashaAllah, we can hear you clearly, Sayyidi). Okay, okay alhamdulillah. How is everyone, everyone’s good? (Combined voices: Alhamdulillah Sayyidi. We’re missing you.) Thank you shaykh, we miss everybody there. Allah (AJ) bless you, your families, and everyone. Everyone online: As Saalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu.
Real Path of Purification Teaches the Science of Knowing Oneself
This way of tafakkur (contemplation) is oversimplified in Western understanding. People say that, ‘Just love is the way and love.’ Then people of dogma and rules they say, ‘No, no it’s the actions and we don’t know any such word as love.’ Tariqah (spiritual path), the real Sufism, the real path of tazkiyah (purification) and cleaning and cleansing, it comes and teaches an immense science. This science of knowing yourself before you can know your Lord and you’ll know the lord that governs you before you know the Lord Most High. Because we said His kingdom is coming but doesn’t mean that it came to everyone. That, the kingdom of satan is within the hearts of people. 99.9% of humanity has given themselves to the kingdom of shaitan (satan). For Allah’s (AJ) kingdom to come there’s going to be an immense battle for that reality to dress insan (human being).
Allah (AJ) Sends Heavenly Servants to Teach Us
Meditation and tafakkur is the highest levels of tariqah but they give a permission to teach it nowadays because of the immense state of difficulty that we’re in. If people don’t begin to understand themselves and correct themselves all that they’re building in their life is a house upon a cliff.
So, imagine children building homes and nobody gives them any guideline and no understanding and you go and visit and the house is on a cliff putting couple of sticks and say, ‘This is what I’m building.’ Allah’s (AJ) Rahmah and mercy comes and dispenses people from the heavens and heavenly training and those whom have been trained under these heavenly servants of Allah (AJ) that, ‘It looks like what you’re building is going to fall within an instant. Come to correct yourself by observing yourself!’
We’re in a School to Understand Our Incorrect Behavior
So, it’s a psychology course for the self. Say, why people should study psychology in school but not to become a psychiatrist or a psychologist to deal with crazy people but to deal with your own crazy self. That, the minute you think you’re cured – and ‘we’, not ‘you’ – as in ‘you’ the audience, me myself. That, a part of this path and the realization of this path was my own insanity. That, my insane behavior, my incorrect behavior. Allah (AJ) enrolled me in a school of psychology to get to understand the psyche. It’s not, ‘Understand the psyche of other people,’ because when you take these courses and you take these understandings and you read a little bit about psychology it’s actually learning about yourself and this is what Prophet ﷺ described, ‘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 (pbuh)
What Governs You is What Makes You!
“Rab” in Arabic is a ‘Governing Body’ – that which governs you. It’s not only the Creator; the Creator Most High governs everything but that’s over-simplified. What awliyaullah (saints) come to inspire in our lives is you have to understand what is governing you, what is your underlying characteristic, what is it that makes you. If it’s not of a Divinely nature you will not survive what’s coming. I don’t know if anybody has noticed but there has been an immense opening of negative energies, immensely negative. That the energies everywhere are so immensely negative that by Allah’s (AJ) Grace and Mercy is the only way to survive these difficulties and these hardships that begin to open upon humanity.
Actions are Negated When We Exhibit Bad Character
One understanding, because some people were saying that, ‘The way is love and you don’t need to meditate, you don’t need to do anything, just to love.’ You don’t have any love and you don’t have any prayers; you don’t have anything if it’s not understanding the good character. Because somebody who thinks they are loving and if they don’t have good character they’re not actually loving. If they think that they’re praying good and Allah’s (AJ) so happy with their ‘amal, their actions, their worshipness and if they’re continuously in bad character Allah (AJ) then describes, ‘That’s not something that’s going to be accepted in Divinely Presence.’ There’s many Hadith on that, that they come to Allah (AJ) so boastful of how they prayed so well and Allah (AJ) dragged them away. They came and how they gave so much and how much they did for Allah (AJ), Allah (AJ) dragged them away. Tariqah comes to teach that before that type of appearance before our Lord, we take a hisaab, we take an accounting of ourself.
﴾وَقَدِمْنَا إِلَىٰ مَا عَمِلُوا مِنْ عَمَلٍ فَجَعَلْنَاهُ هَبَاءً مَّنثُورًا ﴿٢٣
25:23 – “Wa qadimnaaa ilaa maa ‘amiloo min ‘amalin faja’alnaahu habaaa’am mansooraa” (Surat Al-Furqan)
“And We shall turn to whatever deeds they did (in this life), and We shall make such deeds as floating dust scattered about.” (The Criterion, 25:23)
The Greatest Struggle is the Struggle Against Yourself
So, very simple understanding for meditation, tafakkur and self-realization is everybody has a little candle within themselves. I talked about pilot light but somebody didn’t understand what a pilot light was, they though it was a pilot but it’s a candle. So, imagine there’s a little candle inside you, Allah (AJ) gives a little candle. This little fire is the source of every bad characteristic that we have. So, because we have to visualize exactly how we are so that where we’re going is ‘inside.’ The concept of meditation is not sitting by a tree. That, to reach a state of peace you must have had Jihad al-Akbar (the greatest struggle) and that’s the immensity of what Prophet ﷺ was teaching.
He ﷺ was teaching companions who were fighting on a daily basis, maybe two battles a day and people dying, companions dying, people being slaughtered. After all these battles Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ described that, ‘When I leave this Earth and my passing from this Earth, the greatest battles for you will begin.’ The Sahabi (Holy Companions of Prophet ﷺ) were shocked that, ‘How when we’re fighting all the time and we think this is like immensely difficult, that there’s going to be a time where the real jihad will come, the real struggle will come?’ And (Prophet ﷺ) says, ‘Yes, it’s the struggle against ourselves.’
عَنْ جَابِرُ قَالَ قَدِمَ عَلَى رَسُولُ اللَّهِ (صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ) قَوْمٌ غَزَاةٌ، فقَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: ” قَدِمْتُمْ خَيْرَ مَقْدَمٍ مِنْ الْجِهَادِ الْأَصْغَرْ إِلَى الْجِهَادِ الْأكْبَرْ.” قِيْلَ وَمَا اَلْجِهَادِ الْأكْبَرْ؟ قَالَ: ” مُجَاهَدَةُ الْعَبْدِ هَوَاهُ “.
“An Jabiru qala, ‘qadema ‘ala Rasulullahi (saws) qawmun ghazatun, faqalan Nabiyu Sallallahu Alayhi was Salaam: ” Qademtum khaira maqdamin min jihadil Asghar ilal Jihadil Akbar.” Qeela “wa ma al Jihadil Akbar?” Qala “Mujahidatul ‘Abdi hawahu.”
Jabir (as) narrated: ‘Some warriors came to the Holy Prophet. He (Muhammad (s) said to them, “Welcome back, you came from minor Jihad/Struggle to the greater Struggle.”
It was asked, ‘what is the greater/big struggle Oh Prophet of Allah?” The Prophet (pbuh) replied: “it is the servant’s fight against his own Self/mundane wills/desires.” (Bayhaqi Kitab ul Zuhd-al-Kabir)
At that time there is no reward, there’s no treasures to be taken. The only reward is the beating of ourselves and the effacing of ourself and coming against our bad characteristics. So then it must be immensely difficult, immensely difficult. Meditation and Islamic and spiritual understandings of tafakkur and contemplation and tazkiyah is this battle because we said before, how you can make tawaf (circumambulation) if you don’t know what your life is about?
Meditation in The Holy Qur’an
So, when Allah (AJ) is describing the Ka’bah that, ‘My house has to be washed and once you begin to wash My house then you can begin to circumambulate My house. Once you circumambulate My house then begin your prostration and your prayers.’
﴾وَطَهِّرْ بَيْتِيَ لِلطَّائِفِينَ وَالْقَائِمِينَ وَالرُّكَّعِ السُّجُودِ… ﴿٢٦
22:26 – “…Wa tahhir baytee liTayifeena, wal qaayimeena, wa ruka`us sujood.” (Surat Al-Hajj)
“…Sanctify and purify My House for those who perform Tawwaf (circamambulate), or stand up, or bow, or prostrate [in prayer].” (The Pilgrimage, 22:26)
We said this was a sign from Allah (AJ) about meditation. When people say, ‘Where is meditation? Where is all these things in Qur’an?’ It’s right here but they don’t read the same Qur’an. They don’t have the understanding of what Qur’an is trying to teach them. Why Allah (AJ) is talking about to wash the Ka’bah? He’s not asking for everybody to be Ka’bah washers; everybody try to go get a job there to volunteer to wash the Ka’bah. But that, one day we would understand from Holy Hadith and all the understanding that this way of Allah (AJ) is like a treasure, you have to seek it.
قَال رَسُولَ اللَّه ﷺ، قَالْ اللَّه عَزَ وَجَلْ: ” كُنْت كَنْزاً مخفيا فَأَحْبَبْت أَنْ أُعْرَفَ؛ فَخَلَقْت خَلْقاً فَعَرَّفْتهمْ بِي فَعَرَفُونِي.” [حَدِيثْ اَلْقُدْسِي – بِحَارْ اَلْأنْوَارْ، اَلْعَلَامَةْ اَلْمَجْلِسِيْ، جُزْء ٨٤، صَفْحَة ١٩٩]
Qala Rasulallahi ﷺ, Qala Allah (AJ): “Kuntu kanzan makhfiyya, fa ahbabtu an a’rafa, fa khalaqtu khalqan, fa ‘arraftahum bi fa ‘arafonee.” [Hadith al Qudsi – Behar al Anwar, Al ‘Alama al Majlisi, Juz’ 84, Safha 199]
The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said, that 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.” [Holy Hadith – Bihar al Anwar, by Al ‘Alama al Majlisi, Volume 84, Page 199]
This Life is Like a Video Game – Seek Allah’s (AJ) Treasure
Any child whom plays a video game knows that this life is just a big video game and we’re the avatars inside of it. When Allah (AJ) allowed video game technology to come out, it was a big understanding of ourselves. Our life is a video game. Are you getting it? Are you trying to get the rewards of every level, get all of the secrets of what Allah (AJ) has put upon every station and every level? You want so eagerly to go to the next level but you didn’t take any of the treasures at the level that you’re on. And you didn’t accomplish what you needed to be accomplished so that you would survive the next level. If you play a video game you know that if you don’t get all the right treasures on that level the monster that comes out on the second level, he’s going to obliterate you. Then you go, have to go back and go through all the doors and all the treasures and pick up everything. Allah (AJ) is reminding for us, ‘You’re in a video game.’
Holy Hadith – The Ka’bah is Your Heart
When you read Holy Qur’an did you understand that the Ka’bah was your heart? When Holy Hadith would have taught you because Allah (AJ) wants to know. If you love Prophet ﷺ and you read with earnest and with sincerity these Hadith about yourself, about self-understanding, self-realization.
Prophet ﷺ described, ‘Allah’s (AJ) not in heaven and He’s not on Earth.’ Where is Allah (AJ)? ‘In the heart of His believer.’ Another Hadith that the heart of the believer is the house of Allah (AJ), “Qalbil mu’min baytullah.”
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)
قَلْبَ الْمُؤْمِنْ بَيْتُ الرَّبْ
“Qalb al mu’min baytur rabb.”
“The heart of the believer is the House of the Lord.” Hadith Qudsi
Meditation is to Continuously Cleanse Your Ka’bah of Any Idols
The heart of a mu’min (believer) is a house of Allah (AJ). So then my heart should be a Ka’bah, my life should be to clean it. That’s my meditation, everyday to look into my Ka’bah and there’s idols in my Ka’bah; Allah (AJ) won’t come where my idols are. And what are idols? That which distract you from the worshipness of Allah (AJ). That which holds you and binds you to something other than Allah (AJ). That which controls you other than Allah (AJ) and it breaks your taslim and your submission – that’s what an idol is. It’s not that you only put a statue of buddha and you try to worship it. But anything that takes you from the submission of your character to submit to Allah (AJ) has become an idol within your heart. Anything that controls you and blocks you from submission, from good character, it becomes an idol within the self. That’s why the tafakkur and contemplation is, ‘My heart has to be a Ka’bah, my life will be how to look at it continuously.’
Shaitan’s Role is to Ignite the Fire of Your Candle With Bad Character
Then they begin to teach that if you’re going to look into your heart there’s a little candle inside that heart. Allah (AJ) has placed that in there. Allah (AJ) made a shaitan to be attached into our life; that’s the role of shaitan in this life. That is, that shaitan knows there’s a candle inside this person’s being, means there’s a little fire, just a little one. It’s (satan) whole life is how to ignite this fire with bad character. So when people have the bad characters and the ruinous traits, it’s the fire that shaitan throws on it like a gasoline that makes the person to explode. If they’re not able to control the issues in their life and their mouth and their tongue, their reaction and action to everything and they become reactive to everything, shaitan has that person under control.
That has now become an idol for them and has blocked them from the worshipness to Allah (AJ) – so that’s what an idol is! It’s not that you only put a statue in your home and say, ‘Oh, I don’t have any statues in my home, I’m not an idol worshipper.’ But you are an idol worshipper if shaitan is the one whom is controlling you because his control is stopping us from taslim (submission) to Allah (AJ). So all he has to do is ignite certain issues and it’s like you poured gas on people. That something comes and triggers, a gas hits the flame and the person ignites with anger. In that rage and anger they are completely overtaken; they don’t hear anything anymore, they’re not seeing what you’re trying to do like, ‘Hold on, slow down, slow down.’
Increasing Satanic Attacks Upon Humanity in the Last Days
This is the state in which was the next stage of this virus. What was the purpose of this virus coming onto this Earth? This is a satanic attack with the permission of Allah (AJ) because these are the last days. These are the last days and this is the truth and the promise of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ that the king of dajjals (systems of deceit) would be arriving. That, shaitans would be occupying everywhere and they would be killing and destroying humanity. Allah’s (AJ) proof that the words of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ are true and this is the stage. These sickness and these shayateen and this attack that is everywhere are devils igniting everyone.
It means if they send a poison, send a virus within insan, send these energies upon people. Not only they get sick and those whom die from the sickness, they die from the sickness. Those whom don’t die from the sickness they are ignited with all sorts of rage. That’s what we told, and anyone go back to the videos that, ‘After the sickness there would be rage.’ It was not a week when they let everybody out and they’re protesting and burning every city. And they think that their cause is just and that’s how shaitan fools you, ‘Oh no, your cause is just. This is not rage you have, this is an issue you have and you have every right to express your issue.’ We said, ‘No! You don’t have any right to express any issue. It’s not a viable issue in Allah’s (AJ) eyes at all.’ What this is, is a satanic attack and satanic attack comes with all these devils and ignite people.
Shaitan Tricks You to Wash With Alcohol Instead of Water
If they don’t ignite them, they give them to rub and to wash in alcohol, people are practically making wudu (ablution) in alcohol now. They put it all day long on their hand then they now put it on their face, then they put it on their hand. And it was a news article that comes out that a lady ignited third degree burns on her whole body from this rubbing alcohol. First they asked, ‘How she got this alcohol on her whole body?’ Because everyday they wipe here (Shaykh rubs his hand together), then they wipe a little bit here (cheeks), clean a little bit here (hands). And that’s all shaitan wants. That is, that, no longer wash with water! That, ‘Have me inside of you, have me outside of you and to wash me all over you so that you’re completely like a fire, you ignite like a flame.’ And the lady burned even from the outside third degree.
Meditation is Not For Relaxation and Entertainment Purposes
So, we don’t understand that we’re under a satanic attack and that all these devils are coming and people think that meditation is for relaxation and entertainment purposes. It has absolutely nothing to do with that! It’s actually not relaxing at all; it’s very aggressive, it’s very combative. Because everything about myself is not to submit, not to listen, not to take any type of guidance, but to be left by myself with my devils. Just leave me alone and let my devils do whatever they want to do.
Walk Away from Shaitan and Go Wash With Water!
So, no! This Jihad al-Akbar is tafakkur – how to contemplate, how to wash, how to make your zikr (Divine Remembrance), how to control any type of emotion. When you feel that something is coming, you can feel you’re being sparked, ‘Go wash.’ Walk away from the situation and go and wash and don’t let shaitan to ignite your entire being as if he burned your Ka’bah. Everything that you had beautified within yourself, put all your zikrs, put all your…imagine that you put all these beautiful things for Allah (AJ) in your heart, the moment you become angered shaitan burned it all. As if now you are in a completely blank state and you must rebuild everything right back from scratch and that’s all he wants. Is that, to look that there’s no rewards, there’s no nothing there, its just been continuously burning down.
Learn the Survival Mechanisms for Days of Difficulty
So, this is not an end stage. It’s not a beginning path, it’s not something for entertainment. It is a survival mechanism for what’s coming. When we understand and
- We’re going to meditate,
- We’re going to contemplate,
- We’re going to breathe,
- We’re going to learn how to make the madad (support) and the connection with the shaykhs, asking for support. When these negativities are coming around, ask for the support train in the support,
- Make your salawats (praises upon Prophet Muhammad ﷺ),
- Understand how water is essential for us. If there’s too much negativity, you have to have water with a little bit of tea tree oil – all of these trainings to push away any type of negative energy.
- Burn esfand (wild rue) and different fragrances that burn away and push away negative energies.
All of these become the tools and the armory for the believer in which to arm themselves against an unseen force that is coming onto this Earth in a big opening, in a big opening. We pray that Allah (AJ) to dress us and to bless us.
Support to Build Your Lifeline With the Shaykh
Those who can, support! Your support creates a lifeline to the shaykh. When you support, you’re locked onto them. If you are not supporting, you’re probably clicking around to twenty different people. Then you got to figure out who’s got your back. If you’re bouncing around to twenty different shaykhs and you’re just clicking clicking clicking; you’re just in it for the entertainment. But when you build a lifeline with the shaykh and find the one that you like and that the teaching resonates with you, you begin to support. That support not only cleanses insan (human being) because of how you make your rizq and your sustenance and all the contaminants within that sustenance. As soon as you give it as support the shaykhs make it like gold.
They make circles of zikr, they give out support, they do whatever Prophet ﷺ is ordering for them to do. That rizq (sustenance) becomes like a gold that blesses you and your family eternally. But most important it makes a connection with the shaykh like a lock. That you’re communicating, you’re in it, you’re being supported by it, you have a belief with it. Now that relationship begins to open and that person begins to feel the essence of being a student and someone on that path and not just drifting alone in space where unknown where they’re going. It’s a sense of belonging in community. That I belong to them, I’m with them, I’m supporting with them and that’s what’s essential in this path and especially in these days that, support!
Answer the Call to Action!
Then support with your abilities, with your skills, whatever things that you can contribute of technology, everything now is based on technology. If you’re somebody who’s sitting and knows how to make apps, knows how to do digital marketing and you’re saying absolutely nothing while you see us struggling on how to do all of this and market and put it out, just think to yourself you could’ve been doing this for Prophet ﷺ. Don’t you want the nazar (gaze) of Prophet ﷺ? Don’t you want to have beatific dreams in which Prophet ﷺ tells you that he’s happy with you and feel a sense of love and support? So, then that’s our whole life, this is now a call to action. This is a call for rising that something is coming upon this Earth of difficulty and run to the cave of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.
Connect With the Spiritual Specialist Allah (AJ) Has Guided You To
If it’s not us, no problem. Find someone in your heart that resonates with you and take that path and the teaching. If these teachings are of interest to you and to connect and to make your meditation then you have to go here. But you can’t take our teaching and all these questions and then go to another shaykh and say, ‘Oh tell me about muraqabah (spiritual connection).’ Well, if he wasn’t teaching about it, that’s not his specialty.
Allah (AJ) has like a medical school. If you have orthopedic surgeon, you go to a orthopedic surgeon, you don’t got to cardiologist asking him about orthopedic surgery. So, it means you go to the specific and the specialist in which Allah (AJ) has guided you. If you are a person of spirituality, a person who wants to contemplate, a person who wants a higher understanding then you seek out those whom teach of a spiritual nature and spiritual reality and how to connect to that reality.
Celebrate the Mawlid an Nabi ﷺ by Feeding Those in Need
We pray that Allah (AJ) dress us, bless us, protect us and prepare for us. The way that we prepare is to support the Milad un Nabi ﷺ (celebration of the birth of Prophet ﷺ). They’re blocking us from the open celebrations in public and said that we could be responsible for any type of public gathering and any potential outbreak, so no problem. This year we’re going to be donating on two continents; on the US and in Canada and in Pakistan of giving away food for the love of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ to those who are in need to eat and that, Prophet ﷺ be happy with us. That, for the name of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ the immense barakah and blessings of the Mawlid and the celebration of the Holy Birth of Prophet ﷺ to feed those in need. So we urgently ask people to support and to join us. Join us in these causes so that our families to be safe.
Support Orphanages in Pakistan for the Sake of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ
There are children in orphanages that their orphanages are run down and destroyed and we can spend 20-30 thousand dollars remodeling a house and people think it’s nothing. In just a few thousand dollars we could paint their entire environment to make it look beautiful and beautiful for the sake of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. InshaAllah, Allah (AJ) dress us and bless us and give us ability to be of support and to be of help, inshaAllah. Bi Hurmati Muhammad ul-Mustafa wa bi siri Surat al-Fatiha.
Subhana rabbika rabbal ‘izzati ‘amma yasifoon, wa salaamun ‘alal mursaleen, walhamdulillahi rabbil ‘aalameen. Bi hurmati Muhammad al-Mustafa wa bi siri Surat al-Fatiha.
