Secret of the Nuqt (Dot) Under the Ba in Qur’an, Reality of Imam Ali (as), Zikr Energy

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
All Creation From the Reality of Muhammadun RasulAllah ﷺ
Everything around us is from Muhammadan Light. All this teaching, they keep trying to repeat and repeat and repeat. Allah (AJ) understanding is in la ilaha illAllah, and you can never reach that. It is not an ocean that is for anything from creation to enter. Its understanding can only be understood through the reflection called, Muhammadun RasulAllah ﷺ. So, everything created is not created in la ilaha illAllah. That is why Allah (AJ) says la ilaha illAllah: La, don’t look here, nothing is with Me. Allah the Creator, created creation in an ocean of creation, in which Allah (AJ) is not in that ocean. Because Allah’s (AJ) not created. You make a computer, you are not in the computer; you unplug it anytime you want.
Everything is in Muhammadun RasulAllah ﷺ, every atom. So this only makes more sense from malakut (heavenly realm) when you think of light. Every light is the source of all forms. It means the atomic reality is the source of how this form is manifesting. So that malakut is all under Muhammadun RasulAllah ﷺ. Every atom in every wall in your home, on the couch, everything animate, inanimate object has atoms within it; each atom ‘Adam’ is under Muhammadun RasulAllah ﷺ. And haqqiqatil Muhammadiya ﷺ is inside that atom; its source of power is from that reality.
Durood Sharif is the Highest Zikr of Allah (AJ)
So then, imagine then the greatness of zikrullah (remembrance of Allah). When you go for your salah (prayer) it is for your own benefit. Allah knows what type of realities open for your salah. But as soon as you mention Allah (AJ), zikr of Allah (AJ), and we said before the highest zikr of Allah (AJ) is when you say, “Allahumma salli ‘ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ‘ala aali Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ,” durood sharif.
اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ، وَعَلَى آلِ سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ وَ سَلِّمْ
“Allahumma salli ‘ala Sayyidina Muhammadin wa ‘ala aali Sayyidina Muhammadin wa Sallim.”
“O Allah! Send Peace and blessings upon our master Prophet Muhammad and upon the Family of our master Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)”
It is praising Allah (AJ), showing Allah (AJ) that I understood that, ‘You are a hidden treasure wanting to be known’ and You are being known through Muhammadun RasulAllah ﷺ, the perfected reflection of the Divinely Presence.
كُنْت كَنْزاً مخفيا فَأَحْبَبْت أَنْ أُعْرَفَ؛ فَخَلَقْت خَلْقاً فَعَرَّفْتهمْ بِي فَعَرَفُونِي
“Kuntu kanzan makhfiyya, fa ahbabtu an a’rafa, fa khalaqtu khalqan, fa ‘arraftahum bi fa ‘arafonee.” (Hadith Qudsi)
Allah (AJ) said, “I was a hidden Treasure then I desired to be known, so I created a creation to which I made Myself known; then they knew Me.”
Every Molecular Structure is Activated by Zikr
As soon as you make the zikr and salawats (praisings), every atom in your room around you, every molecular and atomic structure around you, is now activated in that zikr. Because its core reality is Muhammadun RasulAllah ﷺ. All its angels and angelic reality, all its core reality; as soon as you make zikr these atoms are activated. And its reality of Bahrul Qudra (Ocean of Power) because there is a reality of the Ocean of Power that is above us and we are merely its reflection on this Earth. But as soon as you make zikr, all these atoms are being activated, moving, moving. Like a key that unlocked its reality. Not by your salah, not by your zakah (charity), nothing that you do, your Hajj (pilgrimage), not your shahadah (testimony of faith), nothing going to activate that reality. But as soon as you make the zikr of Allah (AJ), it’s free from ego and nafs; it’s activated by that zikr, it’s excited by that zikr, it is now flowing within the zikr.
The Earth is Spinning Fast to Keep Everything in Its Place
And you will see all the energy within the room is moving, moving, moving. Some energies are so strong in their movement, later on come back and you’ll see the pictures in your home moved (Shaykh demonstrates with hand tilted frame), cause it is moving, its moving, its moving. The Earth is moving, how many hundred thousands kilometres per second. The Earth is spinning, its rotation, had it not spin you would have floated away. Its spin is what’s keeping everything; its spinning so fast that you can have a comfortable life on this Earth.
Just imagine then these atoms when they are activated by these zikrs and these salawat, what type of energies are now coming? And that is the power, that is the power of zikrullah. That is the power of the majlis of salli alan Nabi ﷺ, the majlises that get together to praise upon the prophetic reality.
Run to the Circle of Paradise and Activate the Hamd in Your Homes
That his name sallal lahu alayhi wa sallam (peace & blessings be upon him) is “hamd” (praise). That Allah (AJ) gave a secret that that name has hamd in it; as soon as you hamd, you’re activating everything. Do you think that a shaitan (satan) can survive in that type of energy? Do you think any sicknesses and difficulties survive in that type of energy? As soon as you activate that hamd in your home, in your environment, wherever it is, there is a force that is entering. When that force enters, it begins to activate everything around, every atom around, every molecule around, every jinn (unseen beings) and ins that is around, that are mu’min (believer) are activated by that zikr and that hamd. Zikrullahi akbar (greatest remembrance is the remembrance of Allah (AJ)). We pray that Allah (AJ) give more and more understanding of the reality of zikr, the majlises of zikr, what type of energies and blessings it activates. In a world filled with difficulty, Allah (AJ) gave us a tremendous weapon against difficulty. All we have to do is run to the circles of paradise and activate that reality.
Beautify Your Soul with Medallions of Durood and Praising
These awliyaullah (saints) teaching that there is planting seeds onto the soul. You know, there is going to be a harvest time. That, when you plant these seeds of love; every naat (praises) and salawat that being recited, they are coming loaded, loaded with realities that cannot be imagined. And they are being thrown upon the soul, thrown upon the soul, like medallions that give the soul its dress of honour in Allah’s (AJ) Divinely Presence. Allah (AJ) says come for Salatul Jum’ah (Friday Prayer) in the best of your clothing.
﴾يَا بَنِي آدَمَ خُذُوا زِينَتَكُمْ عِندَ كُلِّ مَسْجِدٍ وَكُلُوا وَاشْرَبُوا وَلَا تُسْرِفُوا إِنَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ الْمُسْرِفِينَ ﴿٣١
7:31 – “Ya bani Adama khudho zeenatakum ‘inda kulli Masjidin wa kuloo washraboo wa la tusrifo, innahu la yuhibbul musrifeen.” (Surat Al-A’raf)
“O Children of Adam! Wear your beautiful apparel/adornment at every Masjid/places of worship: eat and drink: But waste not by being excessive. Indeed He, does not love those who wastes/commit excess.” (The Heights, 7:31)
Dunya (material world) people go buy a nice suit and go for jum’ah. But the best of clothing doesn’t mean anything for Allah (AJ) because remember Allah (AJ) says, this dunya, your heavens and earth don’t mean the weight of mosquito wing for Me. How insignificant Allah (AJ) put everything into the wing of a mosquito, is more complicated to make than all of this dunya or more interesting to Allah (AJ) than all the Heavens and Earth, is a mosquito’s wing.
So what is Allah (AJ) talking about than to beautify what? To that what I gave you of eternity, your soul. Put all your medallions and your beatific dress upon your soul. It means make these praisings. When we are saying in the naat “zeenat al arsh” (beauty of the the Divinely Throne).
عرش کی زیب و زینت پہ عرشی درود
فرش کی طِیب و نزہت پہ لاکھوں سلام
Arsh ki zebo zeenat pe, Arshi Durood
Farsh ki teebo nuzhat pe, Laakho salaam
Heavenly praising upon the one who is the Ornament of Heavens. Millions of salutations upon whom is the purity and fragrance of the earth. The earth was made habitable and beautiful because he would walk on it.
Some of these Urdu Wahabis they say, ‘No, no, this bid’ah (innovation), this shirk (polytheism), all these garbage words that they use. And then at the end they give salat o salams and they say: zeenat al ‘arsh. That Prophet’s ﷺ name is the beauty that beautifies the Throne. If you think the name and the durood sharif of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ beautifies the Divinely Throne, imagine what it does to our soul?
Nasheeds Are Seeds on the Soul That Grow to Realities
That this is a beatific dress as soon as we are making these salawat, making these praisings, this is the only thing that does that, not your salah; your salah does nothing of this reality. And pray to God that shaitan not in you that he negate all your salah. It is not even comparable. These duroods and these naats and these salawats make a beatific dress upon the soul, beatific lights that not from us. It’s not anything that can be achieved from us, that Allah (AJ) dresses upon the soul. Amazing adornments of light, and they grow and they grow. And then as you have firmness in your path and continue, and continue, these lights are turning into trees in Divinely Presence. They are taking root, cause you keep doing it, keep doing it, keep doing it, these trees begin to bear fruits. A day comes when all these haqqaiqs (realities) are blossoming within your soul. They are blossoming so much because the durood is so many and so much, and so often, that the fruits are flying out of your mouth, all its haqqaiqs.
And everything they teach, you will find in a durood, you will find it in a salawat. If you ever read the words, wow, that’s what they were saying, oh wow, look, this is what they are saying. Yes, because of a lifetime of sending these seeds, they are going to grow. And when they grow, they are going to make amazing fruits. And when they make these fruits, you survive off of them, your family survives off of them, and an entire community will be nourished for all of eternity off of them. And these become the futuhaat of awliya (openings of the heart of the Saints). The only thing that you can leave behind of any significance is the seeking of these realities and of these knowledges. And if these knowledges blossom, they become an eternal dress for you and a source of guidance for anyone who comes across that fruit.
Muhammadun RasulAllah ﷺ is The Point of Origin – Nuqtatit Ta’yini
When la ilaha illAllah wants to bring creation into existence it merely begins to send an energy towards the presence of Muhammadun RasulAllah ﷺ, fee maqam e “qaba qawsayni aw adna.”
﴾فَكَانَ قَابَ قَوْسَيْنِ أَوْ أَدْنَىٰ ﴿٩
53:9 – “Fakana qaaba qawsayni aw adna.” (Surat An-Najm)
“And was at a distance of two bow lengths or nearer [to the Divine Presence].” (The Star, 53:9)
What happens when the energy comes and begin to approach the reality of Sayyidna Muhammad ﷺ? A ball of energy, an existence is brought into existence. From Izzatullah, from the Will of Allah (AJ), that power moving through la ilaha illAllah, as soon as it is about to get near Muhammadun RasulAllah ﷺ a nuqt (dot) is born, a little nuqt. So what did we just sing from these awliya (saints)? ‘Nuqtatit ta’yini, who is the point of origin and the source of all realities? Muhammadun RasulAllah ﷺ.‘
صَلاَةٌ ، بِالسَّلاَمِ الـمُبِينِ
لِنُقطَةِ الـتَّعيِـيْنِ، يَاغَرَامِىْ
Salatun, bis Salamil mubini
Li nuqTa tit ta’yini, Ya gharami
Blessings, and infinite peace be upon, The one who is the Point of Origin and the Source of all realities, O Beloved (Prophet Muhammad (s))
Entire Universes Are Created From the Nuqt
That nuqt is a pure energy that entire universes within each nuqt. Entire universes within that nuqt and we described before a nuqt like a dot. When Sayyidina Jibreel (Gabriel) (as) asked, ‘Ya Rabbi, I want to see, I want to see these nuqts of creation that you have. How many of these universes do You have?’ Sayyidina Jibreel (as) was sent with all his wings, 1,600 wings, full force, full power, fly over this ocean.
And there were all these pearls, these nuqts, like little pearls. He says as much as I flew forward, backwards, right and left, I got exhausted and I reached no beginning and no end. Angel doesn’t get exhausted, but exhausted the energy, that I am going, going, it is not going to happen. As much as he goes like flying on a airplane, Allah (AJ) expands the horizon. The Creator has no limit. You cannot put a limit on Allah (AJ). As much as you take from Allah (AJ), it has to be as if you took nothing. You cannot deplete anything from Allah (AJ); you cannot take anything from Allah (AJ) because you don’t exist. That in its own is a different talk.
The Green Peacock and the Pearls of the Universes
But this one, Sayyidina Jibreel (as) is going, going, going, come back. Then Allah (AJ) allowed him to see a vision in which, ‘I saw a beautiful green peacock, would sit on a pedestal and then would go down by order of Allah (AJ), would take one of these pearls into his beak and crush. As soon as he crushed the pearl, entire universes came into existence.’ He said I saw these pearls went infinite, in every direction.
From la ilaha illAllah, Izzatullah is moving, the Will of Allah (AJ) is moving what Allah (AJ) is desiring, is moving, is about to come to the holy heart of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. My amr and My irada is flowing in the heart of Sayyidina Yaseen ﷺ.
﴾إِنَّمَا أَمْرُهُ إِذَا أَرَادَ شَيْئًا أَن يَقُولَ لَهُ كُن فَيَكُونُ ﴿٨٢
36:82 – “Innama AmruHu idha Arada shay an, an yaqola lahu kun faya koon.” (Surat YaSeen)
“His command is when He intends a thing, He says to it, “Be,” and it is!” (YaSeen, 36:82)
Merely from la ilaha illAllah begin to come and approaches “qaba qawsayni aw adna,” where la ilaha illAllah is at the border of Muhammadun RasulAllah ﷺ, right at that point…ghuur (booming sound). This energy, this creation has come into existence; entire universes in that creation. That then becomes a nuqt.’
﴾فَكَانَ قَابَ قَوْسَيْنِ أَوْ أَدْنَىٰ ﴿٩
53:9 – “Fakana qaaba qawsayni aw adna.” (Surat An-Najm)
“And was at a distance of two bow lengths or nearer [to the Divine Presence].” (The Star, 53:9)
The Nuqt Under the Ba Gives it the Key to All Realities
In its understanding and its reality, and in its honours, the ilm e huroof (knowledge of the letters) chase this nuqt to get an understanding. Because it has of a magnificent honour and magnificent might. That nuqt goes under the ba and gives the ba its key to all realities. In the ba contains the gate for all knowledges, for it is the gate of Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem. All Qur’an in 30 juz (part), 30 juz in 7 verses of Fatiha. 7 verses of Fatiha – it is like collapsing a laser – 7 verses of Fatiha in Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, all of Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem collapse to the ba.
And Ulul Baab, there are awliya who are called Ulul Baab, they are the gatekeepers of these knowledges, whom their master is Sayyidina Ali (as). “Ana madinatul ilm wa aliy babaha.” Actually Baabe Hu, that he is the gatekeeper of the baab.
قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ :أَنَا مَدِيْنَةُ الْعِلْمٍ وَ عَلِيٌّ بَابُهَا
Qala RasulAllah ﷺ, “Ana madinatul ‘ilmin wa ‘Aliyyun baabuha.”
“I am the city of knowledge and ‘Ali (as) is its door/gatekeeper.” Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
And the one who guards that reality with a lam alif, why? Because we started with la ilaha illAllah Muhammadun RasulAllah ﷺ, lam alif and the zulfiqar (sword of Imam Ali (as)); he guards it with zulfiqar, is the lam alif. And Imam Ali (as) said, ‘I am the nuqt under the ba.’
The Nuqt (Dot) Gives Honour to the Huroof
This ba and this nuqt – then in this ilm e huroof we are watching where it moves and gives an honour to that huroof. When it is under the ba it becomes the opening of the baab and the realities of Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem. When the nuqt goes to the form of the ha and goes into the belly of the ha, it becomes the honour and makes that letter call jeem. Right? It goes into the belly and becomes jeem, and jeem was for Sayyidina Jibreel (as). These are not random names. The huroof has a secret in which gives that name its ability. Not you find your name and say what’s my number count. This not important, me and you were supposed to be out of the formula. This was about Allah’s (AJ) Heavens and the realities of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.
When the power of this nuqt comes to the jeem, it’s the power that gave Sayyidina Jibreel (as) the ability to deliver the Message on behalf of Allah (AJ) to Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, from Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ out to all of Creation. That, Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ gives that permission and that power of that nuqt into the reality of Sayyidina Jibreel to carry wahy (revelation) and to carry the Message of Allah (AJ) throughout Creation and deliver it to the prophets of Allah (AJ). Without that nuqt he wouldn’t have had the ability to carry that power, the Izzah and the Might.
The Honour of the Dot in Khaa, Dhaad, Zaa and Ghayn
When it goes to the ha and goes on top, it becomes a khaa and gives honour to this creation, and makes it the khalifa (deputy), because he carries the honour of Allah’s Izzah and Might upon his creation. It is the Siddiqs (truthful).
When the nuqt comes onto them becomes a dhaad for diya. Because the Siddiqs they carry a diya (Divinely Fire), a light, “Shamsun diya wal qamarun noorun.”
﴾هُوَ الَّذِي جَعَلَ الشَّمْسَ ضِيَاءً وَالْقَمَرَ نُورًا وَقَدَّرَهُ مَنَازِلَ لِتَعْلَمُوا عَدَدَ السِّنِينَ وَالْحِسَابَ ۚ مَا خَلَقَ اللَّـهُ ذَٰلِكَ إِلَّا بِالْحَقِّ ۚ يُفَصِّلُ الْآيَاتِ لِقَوْمٍ يَعْلَمُونَ ﴿٥
10:5 – “Huwal ladhee ja’alash shamsa Diya an wal qamara Nooran wa qaddarahu manazila lita’lamo ‘adadas sineena wal hisaba, ma khalaqa Allahu dhalika illa bilhaqqi, yufassilul ayati liqawmin ya’lamoon.” (Surat Yunus)
“It is He who made the Sun a shining glory/Splendor and the Moon a derived light and determined for it phases – that you may know the number of years and account [of time]. Allah has not created this except in truth. He details the signs for a people who know.” (Jonah, 10:5)
They become in their heart a source of light and their face becomes the moon which is a reflection of light. The sun is a producer of light, the moon is a reflector of light.
When it comes to the taa and it honours the taa, it becomes azheem (magnificent). Sayyidina Taha ﷺ when the nuqt comes and gives him azheem.
When it comes to the ‘ayn and your vision and knowledges, when Allah (grants the nuqt you become from ghayn and been given ghaib, knowledge of unseen.
Sound Produces Energy – Energy Produces Light That Manifests Form
It means this ‘Izzah and Might that comes is a power and like a reality of Laylatul Qadr (Night of Power). That in every moment there is a qadr (power) coming; at every moment ‘anzalna hu’.
﴾إِنَّا أَنزَلْنَاهُ فِي لَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ ﴿١
97:1 – “Inna anzalnaahu fee laylatil-qadr.” (Surat Al-Qadr)
“We have brought it down on the night of power.” (The Power, 97:1)
At every moment that Allah (AJ) is revealing to His Beloved Hu, powers and universes. But its source is always a power. Starts with a sound; this is called the isharat (sign). There is manifestation, there is colour, there is energy. The energy, it starts from a sound; there is a command coming from Allah (AJ) which is the sound. As soon as it is moving, the qul, the command, getting close to the Muhammadan Reality that Allah wants it now to manifest, becomes an energy. That energy begins to produce beatific lights. Those lights then become the manifestation of forms.
The Muhammadan Guides are People of Love
This nuqt is a continuous flowing, ‘anzalna hu’ that Allah (AJ), We are continuously revealing this qudra and this power to the reality of Sayyidina Hu ﷺ. The reflection of the unseen Hu هو, of Allah (AJ). Reminder, “Qul Hu” (Qur’an, 112:1), one speaking, one spoken to cause Allah is saying Qul, Qul Hu, calling one by Hu.
﴾قُلْ هُوَ اللَّـهُ أَحَدٌ ﴿١
112:1 – “Qul HuwAllahu Ahad.” (Surat Al-Ikhlas)
“Say, He is Allah, [who is] One.” (The Sincerity, 112:1)
That reality of Prophet ﷺ is dressing and dressing then his Muhammadan Hu, who achieved their hidayat and guidance. They carry the hey of Allah (AJ) and they have hidayat and they are the hadis and guides of the Nation. And Allah (AJ) made these guides ahlul wadud (people of love). If somebody is guiding or claiming to guide and they don’t have love, it’s a lie and is a shaitan. And Sayyidina Mahdi (as) coming to take them away. Hidayat and guidance is from muhabbat and love. They are ahlul wadud – immense love for Allah (AJ), immense love for Allah’s (AJ) Creation, immense love for Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. And by means of this ‘waw’ Allah (AJ) has unlocked His Kingdoms into their heart. We pray that Allah (AJ) dress us and bless us and keep us in the company of ahlul muhabbat (people of love) and ahlul wadud for they carry the keys of everything cause Allah’s (AJ) rida and satisfaction is upon them, inshaAllah.
