Secret Mysteries of Ka’bah and Hajj
This Article Has Been Translated
From the Realities of Mawlana (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
Our Annual Journey Ends in Zul-Hajj, Under the Guidance of Imam Mahdi (as)
That from the haqqaiqs (realities) of the holy Hajj (pilgrimage) and the reality of ‘Arafah, a reminder that each speaks to their level of understanding and that to reach to the level of understanding that awliyaullah (saints) want us to reach. That once they convey, if you don’t understand, just be patient until that dress can come upon the servant. From what they speak will dress the soul – that everything the soul hears, ya Rabbi, I heard this reality, I want from that reality. I don’t want from the basic understanding but I want from its haqqaiqs.
And in the month of Hajj is 12 months of pilgrimage towards this reality that the seeker is taking every year. Every journey begins Muharram and ends in Zul-Hajj and under the 12th reality, under the final moon, under the guidance of Imam Mahdi (as). It has a tremendous reality of the Muhammadan Hadi, the most guided of the Muhammadan realities that they want to dress upon the khawas of creation. Not common, but these are from the elite of what Allah (AJ) created of their souls.
The Heart of the Believer is the House of Allah (AJ)
And they remind for us that, “Qalb al mu’min baytullah.”
قَلْبَ الْمُؤْمِنْ بَيْتُ الرَّبْ
“Qalb al mu’min baytur rabb.”
“The heart of the believer is the House of the Lord.” (Hadith Qudsi)
That everything like a science, that we’re going for the house of Allah (AJ) and Prophet ﷺ comes to clarify because this is an adab (manners) in which like a science class, you have to put all the elements together to make the understanding. I’m going for the house of Allah (AJ). And Prophet ﷺ comes and clarifies the “Qalb al mu’min baytullah.” That the house of the heart of the believer is the house of Allah (AJ). That if you’re trying to reach that reality, your heart itself should be a house of Allah (AJ).
Clean, Purify and Wash the House of Allah (AJ) Within You
And before you go all the way to Hejaz to visit the house of Allah (AJ), the house of Allah (AJ) is already within your chest. And Allah (AJ) describe, ‘Then clean My house, purify My house, wash My house, and circumambulate My house.’
﴾أَن طَهِّرَا بَيْتِيَ لِلطَّائِفِينَ وَالْعَاكِفِينَ وَالرُّكَّعِ السُّجُودِ ﴿١٢٥…
2:125 – “…An Tahhir baytee liTayifeena, wal ‘Aakifeena, wa ruka’is sujood.” (Surat Al-Baqarah)
“…Purify/Sanctify My House for those who perform Tawaf (circumambulation) and those who seclude themselves for devotion, and bow and prostrate [in prayer].” (The Cow, 2;125)
It means your being to follow your heart and not your heart to follow your body. This world is filled with body pleasures. And the reminder is that make always the more difficult choice to follow the heart because Allah’s (AJ) house within the heart. The soul within the heart and love and ishq and muhabbat is in the heart, not in the brain. So, then they came and they taught us in our life: wash your heart, make your heart like a Ka’bah so that when the invitation comes, “samina wa atana (to hear and obey).” I heard ya Rabbi, labbayk and I’m coming. But I’m coming with Your house in me to see the greater reality of that house.
Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ is the Only Real Mum’in for Allah (AJ)
Then awliyaullah come and teach that the real and only mu’min (believer) for Allah (AJ) is Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. Only believer that Allah (AJ) cares for is Prophet ﷺ. We are all the rest, just cells within a being, a drop. We said before, if anything you read from Qur’an and from understanding if we put ourself in it, the ma’na, the understanding is completely different. If you took a path in which to be nothing, “La ilaha illa anta Subhanaka, innee kuntu minazh zhalimeen,“ that I’m a oppressor to myself. Ya Rabbi, I’m nothing.
﴾لَّا إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا أَنتَ سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّي كُنتُ مِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ ﴿٨٧…
21:87 – “…La ilaha illa anta Subhanaka, innee kuntu minazh zhalimeen.” (Surat Al-Anbiya)
“…“There is no god/diety except You; Glory to you: Indeed I have been of the wrongdoers/Oppressor to Myself!” (The Prophets, 21:87)
Prophet’s ﷺ Arwah Gives Nobility to the Ka’bah
And Allah (AJ) then says, ‘Yes, if you agree that you’re an oppressor to yourself, then we give you a najat and a salvation.’ So, soon as they came and taught us be nothing, be nothing; all the keys of reality will open into your understanding of nothingness. If I’m nothing, then ya Rabbi, who is the mu’min (believer) that you’re talking? Who’s the qalb (heart) that you’re talking about? And they come and whisper, ‘Prophet ﷺ.’ So you’re coming to the location of a house whose master is Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. Rabbil Bayt, the Lord of this house; what gives the house it’s nobility is not its stones and the fabrics that they put upon it. But whose arwah and soul is located within it. And Allah (AJ) describes if you’re looking for me, “Qul in kuntum tuhibbuna Allaha fattabiouni yuhbibkumu Allah.”
﴾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.” (Surat Ali-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.” (Family of Imran, 3:31)
Awliyaullah String Our Beads of Information Together Like a Tasbih
And then I’m Ghaforur Raheem; I’ll forgive all your sins. Come looking for me. But these awliyaullah will guide you on the beads that you’re not able to put together like a tasbih (prayer beads). For your life, they just seem like beads of information. But these awliya come and they take these beads because they themself, they’re the hablillah, they are the strings of Allah (AJ). That Allah (AJ) strung them with these knowledges and they became a tasbih. Because they are the ropes of Allah (AJ), they are the ropes that come from the heart of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.
﴾وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللَّـهِ جَمِيعًا وَلَا تَفَرَّقُوا ۚ ﴿١٠٣
3:103 – “Wa’tasimo bihab lillahi jamee’an wa la tafarraqo…” (Surat Ali-Imran)
“And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not separate…” (Family of Imran, 3:103)
All Nabiyeen, Siddiqeen, Shuhada, and Saliheen Are at the Holy Ka’bah
Come, come to that house, come to that reality of Prophet ﷺ. And Allah (AJ) describe if you’re looking for me, I’m with Nabiyeen, Siddiqeen, Shuhada wa Saliheen.
﴾وَمَن يُطِعِ اللّهَ وَالرَّسُولَ فَأُوْلَـئِكَ مَعَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمَ اللّهُ عَلَيْهِم مِّنَ النَّبِيِّينَ وَالصِّدِّيقِينَ وَالشُّهَدَاء وَالصَّالِحِينَ وَحَسُنَ أُولَـئِكَ رَفِيقًا ﴿٦٩
4:69 – “Wa man yuti’ Allaha war Rasula faolayeka ma’al ladheena an’ama Allahu ‘alayhim minan Nabiyeena, was Siddiqeena, wash Shuhadai, was Saliheena wa hasuna olayeka rafeeqan.” (Surat An-Nisa)
“And whoever obeys Allah and the Messenger (pbuh) are in the company of those on whom Allah has bestowed His Favours/Blessings – of the prophets, the sincere Truthful, the witnesses to the truth (who testify), and the Righteous, and excellent are those as companions.” (The Women, 4:69)
So, this means if the arwah (soul) of Prophet ﷺ is at the Holy Ka’bah, then must be all Nabiyeen, 124,000 souls of Prophets. We say every year, you never know which year somebody like, ‘Oh, now I know what you’re saying.’ Nabiyeen (Prophets); 124,000 Siddiqeen (Truthful), 124,000 Shuhada (Witnesses), 124,000 Saliheen (Righteous); all their souls that don’t encompass more than its light. Their souls are located in the time of Hajj. They make a pilgrimage for Allah (AJ) in that Ka’bah. And from inside the Ka’bah, they can see the people making tawaf (circumambulation) because they are the people of the gate.
They are the people of tafakkur (contemplation). Ulul baab (people of door), they hold the responsibility of that door because that door when it opens, it’s the city of knowledge because the city of knowledge is the soul of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. Of course, they’re all inside the city, they’re not outside the city. These awliya (saints), they’re all inside the city and they’re watching all the other people walk around the village, walk around and keep making walking around. But they’re inside the city, they’re inside that reality.
7 Tawaf For the 7 Names and 7 Paradises
So the first level of tawaf (circumambulation), they have to go 7 times for their 7 names and 7 paradises. And each time they make the tawaf, they acknowledge, ‘Ya Rabbi, that I’m here. I came and I came for one of my realities and I’m circumambulating You 7 times for each of my names and each of its paradises. And grant that name, its reality, and grant that reality to dress my being. That take me from normal to Your Khawas. Take me from my nothingness into Your loving embrace in which You want to bestow your realities.’ That knowledge when you hear it, you’ll be dressed by it. Because your soul will say, ‘I heard, ya Rabbi, I want from my 7 names. I want my arwah (soul) to make this Ka’bah. I want my arwah to make this tawaf.’
And every salah (prayer) is a Hajj. Every ibadah and every worshipness we’re doing is a Hajj. And in this month of Zul-Hajj, most powerful when Allah (AJ) going to open – open all the realities that your soul has been travelling to Me.
Ulul Amr Are the Living Ka’bahs of Allah (AJ)
And why Allah (AJ) want all the people to come for Hajj? Because what He’s bestowing upon this khawas and these elite souls. He wants them to come and take the tabarak (blessing) of this tajalli (manifestation). That what come upon them Atiullaha wa atiur Rasul and all those inside, they’re the ulul amr.
﴾ياأَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَطِيعُواللَّه وَأَطِيعُوٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ…﴿٥٩
4:59 – “Ya ayyu hal latheena amanoo Atiullaha wa atiur Rasula wa Ulil amre minkum…” (Surat An-Nisa)
“O You who have believed, Obey Allah, Obey the Messenger, and those in authority among you…” (The Women, 4:59)
The Atiullaha, the one whom obeys Allah (AJ) is the soul of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ inside. Those whom obey the Rasul ﷺ, they’re around and those who obeyed, those who obeyed the ulul amr – all of them rotating and circumambulating. And Prophet ﷺ, the one who circumambulates the reality of Allah (AJ) wa Izzatullah izzatur Rasul wa izzatul mumineen. And from that izzatul mumineen, it disperses out to all those who are making the Hajj. And wherever they are, it’s always a Hajj in their presence. It’s always a Ka’bah in their presence. They’re the living Ka’bahs of Allah (AJ) and tajallis are moving from their hearts and their realities.
﴾وَلِلَّهِ الْعِزَّةُ وَلِرَسُولِهِ وَلِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ… ﴿٨…
63:8 – “…Wa Lillahil ‘izzatu wa li Rasuli hi wa lil Mumineen…” (Surat Al-Munafiqoon)
“…And to Allah belongs [all] honor, and to His messenger, and to the believers…” (The Hypocrites, 63:8)
Safa e Marwa & the 7 Springs of Realities
And from your tawaf, you go for your Safa e Marwa. Then you’re going 7 times to open this 7 springs within your heart. That Allah (AJ) want to dress you from your realities, that want to dress you from the oceans of Kawthar, and that at the 7th time of your Safa e Marwa means your life is about opening these 7 springs of realities within the heart of the believer. They are the 7 lataifs (subtle energy points) of the heart. The 5 they talk about – the fana (annihilation) and the baqa.
And that each of these springs must be open so when they’re making the Safa e Marwa; they’re reaching to one side and asking Allah (AJ), ‘Ya Rabbi, open from those springs until they reach the 7th and they hit the ground of Sayyidatina Hagar (as) and say, ‘Ya Rabbi, grant me a najat (salvation) and the zamzam to appear.’ The zamzam is the fidratul Islam when Allah (AJ) says, ‘That what you did as a man of your bad character, I make you to be like My rijal whom they are innocent and pure. Innocent and pure, I will make you to be reborn innocent and pure. And that your heart will be the fountains of zamzam and the source of zamzam is the Kawthar.’ So, then they call these awliyaullah “zamzami.” Because any time you drink and eat in front of them, all of that reality is dressed upon those servants and upon any who are in their precincts or in their vicinity.
Keep the Best of Company – They Teach Us to Ask for What We Don’t Know
From that Safa e Marwa, Allah (AJ) then describes the battle of Sayyidina Ibrahim (as). The jamarat and three shaitans (satan) – that the big, bigger and biggest of the shaitans. That when you reach towards your 7 names and 7 realities even you ask for it, if you didn’t understand it, it doesn’t matter. They’re not caring if you understand it or if you think you got it or not, but they want you to know what to ask for. You can’t ask for what you don’t know.
Say, ‘Ya Rabbi, let me to be granted from my reality of my tawaf, my 7 names. Ya Rabbi, let my 7 names give a support and help to me in this dunya (material world). And that this Safa e Marwa that they’re going, ya Rabbi, open this 7 springs within my being in my reality and make my heart to be like a zamzam overflowing. That anybody who drinks from it to be blessed, to be cured and to be healed from it – to be given their Islam, their iman (faith), their Maqamul Iman (Station of Faith) from it.’ It’s enough just to ask because you’re with Nabiyeen, Siddiqeen, Shuhada wa Saliheen (Qur’an, 4:69). Allah (AJ) said, ‘This the best of company.’ But we are accompanying these great personalities that teach us what to ask for.
Sayyidina Ibrahim (as) Was Most Generous in His Sacrifice
Then they say when you’re going for your jamarat because now you did all of those realities, but the whole of Hajj is this ‘Arafat. And the significance of ‘Arafat. And then Sayyidina Ibrahim (as) comes to teach that everything that you did, I’m about generosity. I got those good characteristics. It means you’re going now into the father of faith and teaching that Sayyidina Ibrahim (as) had a vision that I have to sacrifice the child and said, ‘No, I can’t.’ Said, ‘I went back to sleep. No, I can’t. Third time I have to do it and all my life, all I prayed from Allah (AJ) was a child. And everything else I gave to Allah (AJ).’ That he can have everything and anything and he was most generous, Sayyidina Ibrahim (as).
Shaitan Strives to Keep Our Three Senses Locked
And the test came and Allah (AJ) is now describing with all that been dressed to you, now your biggest battle is against shaitan and opening three. That between this reality of the ‘Arsh (throne), there are locks upon you. There are locks upon, there are lock upon your ears, a lock upon your eye – your spiritual vision, and a kiswah that’s veiling you from your reality.
And shaitan’s job is to block with these three locks, that never, never open your hearing and that’s why everyone’s listening to bad music all the time. So, that they don’t hear what their voice is telling them from what Allah (AJ) wants. Doesn’t want us to see our reality so he busies us with every type of vision and movie possible so that you never sit and contemplate and close your eyes and say, ‘What is my reality? What is the vision of my soul? What is my soul want to teach me? What is my soul want to speak to me?’ Teach me and if I hear it enough and listen to its teaching, Allah (AJ) will begin to lift the veil of its blindness and they become ahlul basirah (the people of spiritual vision).
Who Knows Himself, Knows His Lord
So, they did the tawaf and they did their realities and Allah (AJ) dressed them from their 7 names. These guys we’re talking about, they know themselves. Prophet ﷺ said, ‘You don’t know Allah (AJ) until you know yourself and if you don’t know yourself, you don’t know Allah (AJ).’
مَنْ عَرَفَ نَفْسَهْ فَقَدْ عَرَفَ رَبَّهُ
“Man ‘arafa nafsahu faqad ‘arafa Rabbahu”
“Who knows himself, knows his Lord.” Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
They know themselves. They know what Allah (AJ) dressed them and their names and their realities. They understood the 7 springs and what Allah (AJ) has dressed and opened them.
Maqamul Islam – Sayyidina Ibrahim (as) Submits to Allah’s (AJ) Will
And then their greatest battle was with the shaitan. And Sayyidina Ibrahim (as) comes and teaches the first level of shaitan is to not hear what Allah (AJ) has asked of you. Say, ‘No, it can’t be.’ He says, ‘No, it is going to be.’ Say, ‘No, it can’t be.’ And the whole concept of that reality was that the body is not going to submit to what Allah (AJ) wants. And that is the Islam. The Islam has to submit. As soon as he fought that shaitan that how I’m going to do what they’re asking me to do regardless if it’s popular or not?
Maqamul Iman – Sayyidatina Hagar (as) Listens and Obeys
Then Sitna Hagar (as) represents Maqamul Iman because she listened to the rasul. Shaitan came to her and said do you know what the Rasul is about to do? How he’s going to sacrifice your child? [She] said, ‘Whatever he’s been ordered, I am from the people of samina wa atana.’ Because now we’re moving to who Sayyidina Ismail (as) is. Why Allah (AJ) from such a being brought out the holiest and most perfected of creation?
From Sayyidina Ismail (as) is Nur Muhammad ﷺ going to appear. Because all of this Hajj reality is going to be dressed in the reality of Sayyidina Ismail (as). Because the secret is not in the big personality. The secret may be something small that people overlook. The big personality, he got the order – sacrifice your property. Kind of battled with it, not like Imam Hussain (as). He sacrificed his entire family. Went to the wife and she says, ‘Samina wa atana. That what he’s been ordered, we are obeying.’
Stay Firm In Your Belief to Achieve Strong Faith
So, it means then the level of faith if your body is submitting, your faith will be strong. If you’re submitting and real, your faith will be strong. The faith of awliyaullah are like mountains. That you can’t imagine what kind of storms are coming to them, their faith will be strong.
Now a little bit of craziness on the internet and people are calling, ‘What’s going on? What’s going on? What’s going on?’ More the question should be is why are you blowing in the wind like that? The faith must be weak. Maybe your practices are not strong. If your practices are strong, your connection is strong, everything that you’re doing, there is no, ‘What’s going on?’ for you. Your body, your Islam is istiqam, is rooted into the earth, it’s not moving.
Maqamul Ihsan – Sayyidina Ismail’s (as) Youthful Innocence Perfects His Submission
If that’s your condition, you’re like Sitna Hagar (as) where your iman is perfect. She said, ‘Whatever he’s been ordered, we’re with you,’ and spit on shaitan. And the most perfected, most perfected of them is Sayyidina Ismail (as). When the body was shaking and the mom was disturbed, Maqamul Ihsan (Station of Moral Excellence) came and told the body, ‘Don’t worry.’ You’ll find me to be patient with what Allah (AJ) has ordered for you. So the Maqamul Ihsan will save us. That’s why Allah (AJ) wants these realities opened.
If your Islam is going to be tested, your submission, those whom are listening and not Muslim, it doesn’t matter. Whatever your submission is in your practices, if they’re strong and true and based on truth, your faith should be strong like a mountain. If your practices are strong, your faith is strong, Allah (AJ) makes something new to be born from you, Maqamul Ihsan. Maqamul Ihsan comes as a youth, youthful innocence. This is the way of futuwwa (chivalry). This is the way of Imam Ali (as), that your youthful innocence should be overtaking you. Your youthful innocence will draw its sword and teach your body, ‘Submit to what Allah (AJ) has’ – stop shaking!
‘Arafat is the Reality of Sayyidina Ismail (as)
If you have no Maqamul Ihsan, of course your body going to be running and calling everybody on the internet, ‘What’s going on? What’s going on? What’s going on?’ Because they have no firmness. When the body is firm in its practices, it understood; this whole way is based on tafakkur. None of this opens with the eyes of your physical eyes and watching on the internet. It opens by sitting and making your tafakkur and your contemplation, that you’re a person and a reality that you wanted from the reality of your soul. When that opens, their body is firm in their belief. Their iman is firm in their belief. Their Maqamul Ihsan will come.
Then Sayyidina Ismail (as) will come and tell them, ‘Don’t worry, be patient.’ I will be patient with what Allah (AJ) has ordered. Now, you go to the qurban (sacrifice). So, if we understood now this journey like a mountain. Your Islam, shaitan is going to come and hit you and make your practices to be weak. Your iman is going to again to hit your practices to be weak. You overcome them, you’re at the pinnacle. You’re at the top of Jabal Rahmah and that’s the ‘Arafat. That’s why there’s the pinnacle on the top with the little stone, that’s Sayyidina Ismail (as). That your Maqamul Ihsan will save you if you reach towards that reality. And that reality, “Fa salli li rabbika wanhar“; that is the Kawthari reality.
﴾إِنَّا أَعْطَيْنَاكَ الْكَوْثَرَ ﴿١﴾ فَصَلِّ لِرَبِّكَ وَانْحَرْ ﴿٢﴾ إِنَّ شَانِئَكَ هُوَ الْأَبْتَرُ ﴿٣
108:1-3 – “Inna ‘atayna kal kawthar. (1) Fasali li rabbika wanhar. (2) Inna shani-aka huwal abtar. (3)” (Surat Al-Kawthar)
“To thee (O Muhammad) we have granted the Fount (of Abundance). (1) So pray to your Lord and Sacrifice. (2) Indeed, your enemy is the one cut off. (3)” (The Abundance, 108:1-3)
Zamzam Was Opened For the Kawthari Soul of Sayyidina Ismail (as)
It’s not the people who give sadaqah (charity). These are not the people who give zakah (charity). But these are the people whom Allah (AJ) describe, “Inna ‘atayna kal kawthar. Fasali li rabbika wanhar.” (Holy Qur’an, 108:1-2) They prayed unto their Lord and they lived a life of sacrifice. As a result, that is the opening of the kawthari. Why Allah (AJ) is describing Sayyidina Ismail (as) as a kawthari? That from his soul is coming the reality of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ and because of his noble lineage, he must be drinking from zamzam. We accept nothing less than zamzam for his soul.
That’s why Allah (AJ) opened the zamzam for his mother to give to Sayyidina Ismail (as). Not to the other prophets, but to give to Sayyidina Ismail (as). That this reality is a kawthar reality, it only drinks zamzam. So all these kawthari people, Allah (AJ) only gives them zamzam to drink. Because the nobility of their soul, they’re the khawas of the heavens. And their souls are nourished and bathed in that reality.
Pray Unto Your Lord & Live a Life of Sacrifice
And Sayyidina Ismail (as) is coming to teach that with all of that reality if you’re understanding. Allah (AJ) then described when Sayyidina Ibrahim (as) was about to sacrifice, ‘We ransomed him with a tremendous ransom.’
﴾وَفَدَيْنَاهُ بِذِبْحٍ عَظِيمٍ ﴿١٠٧
37:107 – “Wa fadainaahu bizibhin ‘azeem” (Surat As-Saffat)
“And We ransomed him with a momentous sacrifice” (Those Who Set the Ranks, 37:107)
It means this maqam (station) and all this Hajj is based on your qurban. People are doing all sorts of practices and thinking those practices will save you and get you towards your reality. And Allah (AJ) said, ‘No, no, no, go back to what I’m describing.’ This whole reality of sacrificing that boy and that he represents Maqamul Ihsan and Allah (AJ) said there is no need to sacrifice. It means I don’t need from you to give yourself completely, I’m going to ransom you. I’m going to take what you owe and I’m going to give you the goat instead. It means that when you give the qurban, Allah (AJ) will wash away every difficulty, every hardship, every badness that we put upon ourself and that we were not able to achieve what Allah (AJ) wanted us to achieve.
But at least you know who the reality of Sayyidina Ismail (as) is or at least towards the understanding. Any prophet is impossible to understand. But towards the understanding of that reality, that, ‘Ya Rabbi, we are asking to reach to that and to the love of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.’ And then how “Fasali li rabbika” (Holy Qur’an, 108:2), live a life in which you sacrifice. Sacrifice from yourself, from your time, from your ability, from your efforts.
Charity Exists Within the Qurban But Qurban Does Not Exist Within Charity
Don’t be busy not to serve because everything else you’re doing is completely worthless and rubbish. It’s not going to get you into paradise. You know, there are people making fortunes and they give like a shilling in the way of Allah (AJ). They give like a chocolate bar and say good, enjoy it; I hope you guys can accomplish a lot with that. A chocolate bar. And you think your wealth is going to save you? Or it’s going to be a means in which to be punished by Allah (AJ) and this kawthari are coming and teaching, ‘No, no, the pinnacle of all the Hajj was the qurban.’ And something maybe people think is I give charity, I don’t need to give a qurban, no, no, no.
Charity exists within the qurban, but qurban does not exist within charity. These are 2 separate realities. It’s charitable when you give the money away for the meat but that meat has to be sacrificed. Why? It’s in the place of that reality, that ya Rabbi, that I’m not reaching, my sins have overtaken me. With the blood of that creature, that creature will reach its reality and sacrifice itself for me and you. The creature is saying, ‘Fasali li rabbika’, it’s doing the same. So it’s not asking you for something, it’s not. It’s agreeing to Allah (AJ). You love this bani Adam? I sacrifice myself for them to achieve their stations. I will take their burden and the creature takes all the burden and grants you the maqam and the station.
Put Your Love Into What You Believe to Acquire Heavenly Nazar
We pray that Allah (AJ) inspires always to be of service. In days of difficulty, it’s the only safety. It’s the only way to get nazar (gaze) of Prophet ﷺ. Don’t post articles. Don’t post political statements. Don’t do anything that buys you a ticket into jahannam (hellfire). If you want to do anything, post your Shaykh’s articles because you are behind his flag. He knows exactly what he’s supposed to be doing and not doing.
Stay out of political issues. Keep yourself busy with khidmat. Be of service – sing, recite, play, read, do something in the way of Prophet ﷺ. Why? So that you have the nazar of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. You don’t have the nazar by doing your salah (prayer). You had to do it. You don’t have the nazar of doing those amals (deeds). But when you do something from love, you now have their vision and their gaze upon you. That you’re putting your love into what you believe. You busy yourself with your love and we should be safe from all fitnas (confusion) and difficulties, inshaAllah.
Don’t Protest – Everything is for the Arrival of Sayyidina Mahdi (as)
When people don’t understand the time that we live in, there is no need to protest. Everything is exactly the way Allah (AJ) wants it for the arrival of Sayyidina Mahdi (as). There is no need to go anywhere, to say anything, to be angry about anything. All you got to do is hide. Keep your love and stay out of the way, inshaAllah. Allah (AJ) keep us to be safe.
And those that are watching online, Allah (AJ) bless you, dress you, accept the ‘Arafat from all of us, that Allah (AJ) dress us from the lights of ‘Arafat, accept the Hajj upon us, the reality of the Hajj upon us and that grant us the blessings of Eid, inshaAllah.
Subhana rabbika rabbal ‘izzati ‘amma yasifoon, wa salaamun ‘alal mursaleen, walhamdulillahi rabbil ‘aalameen. Bi hurmati Muhammad al-Mustafa wa bi siri Surat al-Fatiha.
