I seek refuge in Allah (AJ) from Satan, the rejected one
In the name of Allah (AJ), the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
Allah’s (AJ) Signs on the Horizon Are in Perfection
And that we share for myself always, from their teaching and a reminder for myself that alhamdulilah, inshaAllah Allah (AJ) grant us a year of understanding the reality and the lights of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ and Allah (AJ) teaching us from holy Qur’an that ‘I’ll send you the signs upon the horizon and the signs within yourself’ and these signs will lead us towards perfection.
﴾سَنُرِيهِمْ آيَاتِنَا فِي الْآفَاقِ وَفِي أَنفُسِهِمْ حَتَّىٰ يَتَبَيَّنَ لَهُمْ أَنَّهُ الْحَقُّ ۗ … ﴿٥٣
41:53 – “Sanureehim ayatina fil afaqi wa fee anfusihim hatta yatabayyana lahum annahu alhaqqu…” (Surat Al-Fussilat)
“We will show them Our signs in the horizons and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth…” (Explained in Detail, 41:53)
We said last night that why Allah (AJ) first to identify the signs on the horizon before the signs within the self. It’s because the signs on the horizon – they are in Allah’s (AJ) perfection. Allah (AJ) doesn’t create imperfection. Allah (AJ) doesn’t create shirk (polytheism), doesn’t create bidah (innovation), doesn’t create anything that is forbidden by Allah (AJ) upon the horizon. There is something different in dunya (material world) and the manipulation of Allah’s (AJ) creation. This means that upon the horizon are the universes. The planets and the stars and the galaxies. And Allah (AJ) asked which is more difficult to create? This creation or you, insan (mankind)? And the heavens are far more complicated and more complex. And alhamdulilah Allah (AJ) gives us for our understanding in dunya (material world), look at the relationship between the sun and the moon.
Learn From the Moon to Focus Entirely on the Sun
How we take everything from the sun, our breath from the sun, the light from the sun, all our dress upon ourselves from the sun and the reflection that it comes to the moon. And the way of marifah (gnosticism) is a way of reaching towards the reality of that moon. Allah (AJ) says why can’t you be like the moon? See how the moon follows the sun and it understands its reality and it doesn’t deviate from its reality and its nazar (gaze), entire nazar (gaze) is upon the sun.
﴾وَالشَّمْسِ وَضُحَاهَا ﴿١﴾ وَالْقَمَرِ إِذَا تَلَاهَا ﴿٢﴾ وَالنَّهَارِ إِذَا جَلَّاهَا ﴿٣﴾ وَاللَّيْلِ إِذَا يَغْشَاهَا ﴿٤
91:1-4 – “Wash Shamsi wa duhaha. (1) Wal Qamari idha talaha. (2) Wan nahari idha jallaha. (3) Wal layli idha yaghshaha. (4)” (Surat Ash-Shams)
“By the Sun and his (glorious) Brightness. (1) By the Moon as she follows him. (2) By the Day as it shows up (the Sun’s) glory. (3) By the Night as it conceals it. (4)” (The Sun, 91:1-4)
And it’s whole existence is to focus upon the sun. And as a result, we are taking a benefit from that reality. It reflects to us a light. That’s what we said before, when we go back and research the importance of the sun and the moon. Our existence on this dunya (material world) is based on that. Without the reality of the sun and the reality of the moon, this is an existence. We can’t have an existence on this dunya (material world).
Our Aim Is to Be Like a Qamar (Moon)
So then they teach us that be like the moon. At every instance, make our lives and recalibrate our lives that ya rabbi, we understood and I want to live our life like a qamar (moon). That’s why all the nasheeds and all the salawats (praisings) is always talking about the qamar (moon) because it’s the full light, it’s the reflection.
قَمَـرُّ طَابَـتْ سَرِيْرَتُـه وَسَجَـايَـاهُ وَسِـيْـرَتُـه
صَفْوَةُ الْبـَارِيْ وَخِيْرَتُـه عَدْلُ أَهْلِ الْحِـلِّ وَالْحِـرَمِ
Qamarun Tabat sariratuHu Wa sajayaHu wa siratuHu
Safwatul bari wa khiratuHu Adlu ahlil hilli wal harami
Like a moon, he is good and wholesome in his intention, his character & his way of life, He is the purest elect/ultimate choice of the Creator. He is the most trustworthy/a righteous witness for people of upright and wrongdoing
Turn Your Temporary Light to An Eternal Star
That ya Rabbi, let me to be like the moon and then you identify the moon – the moon has nothing on it! It means then it begins to open a reality. That stars, they lost their mass. As soon as we die, we lose our mass and our light becomes like a star if we nourished it. If we brought it towards its eternity and its eternal reality, instead of a temporary existence. Allah (AJ) gives us a candle in dunya (material world). He says you have a temporary light. Your duty in life is to make that temporary candle to become eternal, to light the reality of your soul with My Rida and Satisfaction. So then we take our temp light to become permanent lights within this universe and creation.
The Difference Between the Moon and Star is in Their Mass (E = MC2)
And that’s why Prophet ﷺ described the companions, they are the najm (stars).
أَصْحَابِيْ كَالنُّجُـــومْ بِأَيْهِمْ اَقْتَدَيْتِمْ اَهْتَدَيْتِمْ
“Ashabi kan Nujoom, bi ayyihim aqta daytum ahta daytum.”
“My companions are like stars. Follow any one of them and you will be guided.” Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
They are the stars. Any one of them you follow because a star gives light. He didn’t describe them that they’re planets, but they’re stars – they give light!
The Moon Has a Mass and Represents the Wali Who is Alive (E = MC2)
The symbol of the moon is a position in which that wali (saint) is still alive. And he has a physical mass but his physical mass is so purified because of his nazar (gaze) is constantly upon his target which is the sun of realities. It’s the only mass that reflects light versus a star because a star lost its mass. It means when you die, you lose your mass and what’s left is the light2 (light-squared). Your energy is the light2 (light-squared). As soon as you lose the mass, you become the star if you reached eternity. In dunya (material world), because the physical body of that saint and those pious people are still here, then they are referred to as the moons. So best to follow full moons. Although all awliyaullah (saints) are of a moon and they are in degrees of how much of the reflection of that reality they are receiving, right? So, it means if it’s a little quarter of a moon, the hilal (crescent), it’s taking from Prophet ﷺ what it can contain. But yet there is a surface that it has to be polished. That’s why the zikr (remembrance), that’s why the majlis, that’s why the associations.
Be of Service to Benefit the World, Like a Moon
It’s that don’t be like the earth filled with buildings and wants and desires and all sorts of things that are growing upon it and being built upon it because the earth has no benefit. The earth benefits from the sun and the moon. You have time based on that sun and the moon. You have light and nourishment based on that sun and the reflection of the moon. So they teach us be like the moon, not like the earth. As soon as you take a path of following that guidance, following Allah’s (AJ) guidance of the heavens that ya rabbi, let me to lose all my desires and be of service and khidmat to your creation. Now you’re becoming like the moon. That what is reflecting through Prophet ﷺ through your being is dressing the people on earth. Then their darajats (stations) of how much they’re being purified are the phases of the moon until you get into the three days of the white moon.
Three days: one ghawth and the two poles that sit to the sides. Three days of full means they are kamil (perfected). Those awliyaullah (saints) are kamil (perfected). That they have lost all that desire. Prophet has purified. When we look at the surface of the moon, there’s absolutely nothing there but a lot of pounding. Anybody on our path knows that it’s a difficult path. You’re going to be bombarded like the moon. Test after test after test after test.
Be Like the Dog of Ashab al-Kahf (Companions of the Cave) and Take the Testing
And we enter into the holy month of Safar and the secret of Ashab al-Kahf (‘K’ not ‘Q’, kahf not qaf). And the best example of Ashab al-Kahf is the dog – the dog that they threw rocks at the dog, threw rocks at the dog. You want to accompany these moons? You want to accompany this reality? Don’t think yourself from them, but Allah (AJ) gives us a way to approach, ya Rabbi, as you save the dog of Ashab al-Kahf, ya Rabbi save me. They said be like that dog. It took a lot of difficulty from them. They didn’t want it. They didn’t want to know and they don`t know if we’re going there, maybe this dog is going to eat us.
Let’s throw rocks and test it. And they test it and the dog stood up. Allah (AJ) gave that dog a tongue and says, ‘Whatever you throw at me, I’m not stopping. That you’ll find me to be a protection for you. You go do what Allah (AJ) wants. I’ll guard the cave.’ And that’s why you see the moon filled with holes. It’s been bombarded by asteroids, been bombarded and there’s no flat surface. It`s only imaginable how much attack it has taken and has been polished of all material desires.
Ulul Amr Are the Full Moons Reflecting Nur Muhammad ﷺ
The moon is polished and as a result, it acts like a star while its alive. It means while it has a mass, it actually is the only thing that reflects the light of the sun for us. As a result, we tell time. Why all our clocks are white like a moon and have 12 divisions? The 12 buraj, the 12 constellations – our phase in life that we are constantly moving thru these hijabs. From the first of the lunar months of Muharram and now ending and moving into Safar. And the realities in which Allah (AJ) is dressing the sun and the sun is dressing the moon and the moon is dressing earth. And that’s why Atiullaha wa atiur Rasul wa ulil amre minkum.
﴾أَطِيعُواللَّه وَأَطِيعُوٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ ﴿٥٩…
4:59 – “…Atiullaha wa atiur Rasola wa Ulil amre minkum…” (Surat An-Nisa)
“… Obey Allah, Obey the Messenger, and those in authority among you.” (The Women, 4:59)
The real ulil amr (saints) that are qamar, that they are from the moon. They took a path in which to purify and cleanse themselves and they reflect the reality of Prophet ﷺ on earth.
Seek Out the Full Moons Who Reflect the Nur Muhammad ﷺ
Then gives us an understanding that when we are the inhabitants of earth and we want from that light, seek out the moons of Allah (AJ)! Seek out the ahlul qamar, ahlul badr. Because they reflect the light of Prophet ﷺ.
That on earth, the full moon agitates shayateen (devils). The shaytans are under big difficulty on the full moon nights. Why? Because Nurul Muhammadi ﷺ (Muhammadan light) is shining. When Nurul Muhammadi ﷺ shines, they burn and become agitated and they begin to fight and disrupt everything.
But the believers, they find peace and tranquility because they’re being dressed by these lights, blessed by these lights. Then they begin to teach that with these lights and with these benefits, seek out those realities. And if there’s no light, it’s not a moon. And if it’s not a moon, it’s of no benefit to you – it’s a waste of your time. If you go to somebody who is not taking a path of being on a moon, not taking a path of purification, not taking a path of following that which Allah (AJ) wants us to follow.
Focus Only on the Sun of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ
Allah (AJ) wants us to follow Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. And everybody says they’re following Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. Everyone says ‘la ilaha illAllah Muhammadan RasulAllah’ but why is it that their nazar (gaze) is not upon Prophet ﷺ?
لَا إِلَهَ إلاَّ اللهُ مُحَمَّدٌا رَسُولْ الله
La ilaha illallahu Muhammadun Rasulallah
“There is no diety but Allah, Prophet Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.”
Why is it that when they talk, they’re not mentioning Prophet ﷺ? When they talk, they’re not mentioning the way and the mercy and the love of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ? Because they’re not understanding where Allah (AJ) said, ‘I’m going to show you my signs on the horizon so that you understand yourself.’
﴾سَنُرِيهِمْ آيَاتِنَا فِي الْآفَاقِ وَفِي أَنفُسِهِمْ حَتَّىٰ يَتَبَيَّنَ لَهُمْ أَنَّهُ الْحَقُّ ۗ أَوَلَمْ يَكْفِ بِرَبِّكَ أَنَّهُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ شَهِيدٌ ﴿٥٣
41:53 – “Sanureehim Aayaatinaa fil aafaaqi wa feee anfusihim hattaa yatabaiyana lahum annahul haqq; awa lam yakfi bi Rabbika annahoo ‘alaa kulli shai-in Shaheed” (Surat Al-Fussilat)
“Soon will We show them our Signs in the (furthest) regions (of the earth), and in their own souls, until it becomes manifest to them that this is the Truth. Is it not enough that thy Lord doth witness all things?” (Explained in Detail, 41:53)
The Moon is Firm in Following What Allah (AJ) Ordered
Do you look, do you see the moon focusing on another star? No! Do you see that it takes a break and goes in a different direction? It means it’s istiqam, its firmness, is its whole life. It follows exactly what its been told by Allah (AJ) to follow. As a result, we take benefit.
﴾وَأَن لَّوِ اسْتَقَامُوا عَلَى الطَّرِيقَةِ لَأَسْقَيْنَاهُم مَّاءً غَدَقًا ﴿١٦
72:16 – “Wa alla wis taqaamoo ‘alat tareeqati la asqaynaahum maa’an ghadaqaa” (Surat Al-Jinn)
“And [ Allah revealed] that: “If they had only remained firm on their tariqa (straight path), We would have bestowed on them Rain/water in abundance. ” (The Jinn, 72:16)
Can you imagine one day the moon doesn’t show up? It decides it’s going in a different direction or stops. As soon as the day went, we won’t have any guidance at night. Nothing will grow on this earth. It means our existence is based on their submission where Allah (AJ) describes it’s a creation. The moon is a creation of Allah (AJ). The star is a creation of Allah (AJ).
You Cannot Deny You Are in Need of the Sun
Allah (AJ) describing, ‘I’m the power within that sun. So, understand that reality.’
﴾اللَّـهُ الَّذِي خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا فِي سِتَّةِ أَيَّامٍ ثُمَّ اسْتَوَىٰ عَلَى الْعَرْشِ ۖ مَا لَكُم مِّن دُونِهِ مِن وَلِيٍّ وَلَا شَفِيعٍ ۚ أَفَلَا تَتَذَكَّرُونَ ﴿٤
32:4 – “Allaahul lazee khalaqas samaawaati wal arda wa maa bainahumaa fee sittati ayyaam;Thummas tawaa ‘alal ‘arsh; maa lakum min doonihee minw-wwaliyyinw-wala shafee’; afala tatazakkaroon” (Surat As-Sajdah)
“It is Allah Who has created the heavens and the earth, and all between them, in six Days, and is firmly established on the Throne (of Authority): ye have none, besides Him, to protect or intercede (for you): will ye not then receive admonition?” (The Prostration, 32:4)
And then they come into our lives and say but you’re in need of that sun. You say, ‘No no, you’re only in need of Allah (AJ).’ Ok yahoo, don’t be cuckoo. Everybody only needs Allah (AJ), but cause and effect. If you don’t believe, go lock yourself in a cave. Within a year of no sunlight, you’d be dead – all your bones will shatter. Allah (AJ) was there, Allah (AJ) is with you. But you’re not at that maqam (station) to take directly from Allah (AJ). Allah (AJ) is cause and effect. If you’re sick, go into the sunlight. If your body is not well, go into the sunlight. Go by the ocean, even the ocean is a shifa and a healing for you. We’re not at a position because the arrogance makes us to think we’re very high. Only Allah (AJ), Allah (AJ) says, ‘No, no, no, Atiullaha wa atiur Rasul wa ulil amre minkum.’
﴾ياأَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَطِيعُواللَّه وَأَطِيعُوٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ…﴿٥٩
4:59 – “Ya ayyu hal latheena amanoo Atiullaha wa atiur Rasola 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)
Take an understanding from my creation. I didn’t create it as a joke! It has a tremendous reality. If you don’t understand that reality, you didn’t understand yourself. So what Prophet ﷺ asked us is to know yourself to know Allah (AJ). That ya Rabbi, I want to purify myself. I want to be like the moon.
مَنْ عَرَفَ نَفْسَهْ فَقَدْ عَرَفَ رَبَّهُ
“Man ‘arafa nafsahu faqad ‘arafa Rabbahu”
“Who knows himself, knows his Lord.” Prophet Muhammad ﷺ
The Source of Light and Iman is Nurul Muhammadi ﷺ
Then follow the sun. The sun for you, the source of light for you, the source of iman (faith) – iman (faith) is nur (light), Nurul Muhammadi ﷺ (Muhammadan light). Follow the nur (light) in your life! Make the nur (light) to be supreme in your life! That’s all I want, ya Rabbi, is nur (light) – Nur Muhammad ﷺ (Muhammadan light) so that I can reach to iman, and perfect my faith.
لاَ يُؤْمِنُ أَحَدُكُمْ حَتَّى أَكُونَ أَحَبَّ إِلَيْهِ مِنْ وَالِدِهِ وَوَلَدِهِ وَالنَّاسِ أَجْمَعِينَ
“La yuminu ahadukum hatta akona ahabba ilayhi min walidihi wa waladihi wan Nasi ajma’yeen.”
“None of you will have faith till he loves me more than his father, his children and all mankind.” Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
Nurul Iman Leads You to Maqamul Ihsan and Full Moons
Prophet ﷺ described if you have nurul iman, then you’re moving towards maqamul ihsan.
أَنْ تَعْبُدَ اللَّهَ كَأَنَّك تَرَاهُ، فَإِنْ لَمْ تَكُنْ تَرَاهُ فَإِنَّهُ يَرَاك
“An Ta’bud Allaha, Ka annaka tarahu, fa in lam takun tarahu fa innahu yarak.”
“It (Ihsan – Station of Excellence) is to serve/worship Allah as though you behold [See] Him; and if you don’t behold [See] him, (know that) He surely sees you.” Prophet Muhammad (saws)
Maqamul ihsan describes the full moons. They pray as if they see their lord. They worship, all their worshipness is as if they see…not as if they see – they see! They see what’s in front of them, they see the shining light that Allah (AJ) shines upon them. And they are the perfection of that face. Islam is on earth. Iman is in the light. Islam is just taslim (submission) for your body, you didn’t achieve. All you basically just understood, ya Rabbi, I want to rise above the material world. Then He says look to my heavens as an example. Iman (faith) is light. You see what the light is doing?
Be in a State of Nothingness, Like the Moon
That moon knows its not a sun. You’re not a prophet, you’re not at that stage. You’re nothing. So the moon teaches us a way of nothingness, nothing. Don’t be anything. Don’t claim to be anything. Take a path of scrubbing yourself to be nothing and always look to Prophet ﷺ. Always look for nazar (gaze) that you can’t see Prophet ﷺ.
﴾يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَقُولُوا رَاعِنَا وَقُولُوا انظُرْنَا وَاسْمَعُوا …﴿١٠٤
2:104 – “Yaa ayyuhal ladheena aamano, laa taqolo ra’yina wa qolu unzurna wasma’o…” (Surat Al-Baqarah)
“O you who believe! Do not say (to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)) Raina, listen to us, and say Unzurna (gaze upon us) and you listen (to him (pbuh)…” (The Cow, 2:104)
Even what you see is an imagination of Prophet ﷺ. But you keep going, keep imitating, keep faking. Ya Rabbi, I’m coming no matter what. My whole way is in your direction and I’m facing Prophet ﷺ. I want to be dressed by Prophet ﷺ. I want to reach that light of Prophet ﷺ. They say, ‘Oh, but that’s shirk (polytheism)!’ Are you crazy? We just described the moon is following the sun. If it was shirk (polytheism), why the moon would follow the sun? People say, ‘No, I’m only following Allah (AJ)’. It means what they say, we only follow Allah (AJ). Allah (AJ) is everywhere! But Allah (AJ) teaches us by example. Don’t think so high that you have to follow wajib al taqleed, that you have to follow something in your life. Follow the reality of Prophet ﷺ, the light of Prophet ﷺ and be a moon and nothingness!
Empty Your Head of All Its Wants and Desires
And then they begin to teach us: if we take that path of being nothing and following that light, to be dressed by that light, then we begin to open our understanding of ourself – what’s happening upon ourself. That we have that reality within ourself, we have the sun within our heart, how to perfect the light of the sun in our heart and the face and the head becomes the moon. So then they said, empty the head. Empty the head of all its wants and desires. Don’t use your head to follow those realities. Don’t use your head to second guess that reality because your head always wants to be a sun. so our life is based on shutting down that reality. ‘La ilaha illallah, la ilaha illallah.’ That ya Rabbi, I’m not going to get anywhere with this head. If the head becomes empty and becomes like a moon, it’s empty. Use the head for cooking and work, accounting and business. But for Allah (AJ) and the heavens, empty the head, empty the head. If that light begins to shine within the heart, and the light becomes like a sun, it reflects to the head. It means the face becomes nurani, begins to dress from the light of what’s within the heart will reflect through the head.
Allah (AJ) Gave Us Nobility and a Gift to the Soul
Through that reflection, every difficulty can be taken away. That’s why they describing for us, that everything is affected by that moon. It even affects the tide on dunya (material world). Imagine then the walking ones whose hearts are like suns, their faces are like moons, that how much Allah (AJ) emanates through them. Wa laqad karramna bani adam means their station is far above the planets, far above the sun and the moon.
﴾وَلَقَدْ كَرَّمْنَا بَنِي آدَمَ…﴿٧٠
17:70 – “Wa laqad karramna bani adama…” (Surat Al-Isra)
“And We have certainly honored the children of Adam…” (The Night Journey, 17:70)
Because Allah (AJ) gave a nobility and a gift to the soul. That’s what they’re asking for us to rise to that reality, to understand that reality and how to perfect that reality within ourselves.
The Heart Stamps the Iron in the Blood With Zikrullah
The first level of understanding: haqiqat al-juzba (reality of attraction) and how to build an attraction, how to build that light and that energy that as you breathe and understanding ourself, to understand how am I going to achieve to be a moon? They begin to teach the first step is your breath. Understand the importance of your breath that as you’re breathing in is an energy that sustains your being. Those lungs will dress the blood. So then immediately, the importance that Prophet ﷺ asked that safeguard for me, your mouth.
One, what you eat, what you drink, what you breathe is going to affect your energy. As that breath begins to come in, it dresses the lungs, dresses the blood, blood to become purified by zikrullah and move into the heart. If the heart is based on zikr and durood sharif, it means that it’s pumping ‘Allah Allah’, stamps the blood and that blood nourishes the entire physiology of the body. And it stamps the blood on the iron.
Hadid (Iron) is Reality of Guidance and a Built-in GPS in All Creatures
So then the breath and the purification is based on hadid (iron). Hadid is I think surat 57 (Al-Hadid -The Iron) of Holy Qur’an. 57 is Al-Mahdi. Meem, ha, meem…MAH-DI. Spelling of Muhammadan hadi (guide). Hadi – 57, because it has to do with the reality of being a Muhammadan hadi (guide) for hidayat (guidance). The iron is the reality of guidance. If the iron is pure, the guidance is perfected. So then all the creatures have iron within their body. The birds have iron, the whales have iron. Based on that iron, the electromagnetic frequency of the earth, they find their guidance. They have their own built-in GPS system. We lost the iron and we had to buy a box that talks to us. So the bird has iron within it. It submits – the energy of the earth, it understands. And Allah (AJ) sends it coordinates that you fly here, your sustenance here, your home is here.
Smoking Contaminates the Iron in Your Blood and Attacks Your Heart
Then they begin to teach that the breath that you’re bringing in and the qudra (power) and the energy that you’re bringing in. All of that energy is going to be stamped on that iron so take a path in which you perfect and purify that iron.
So then how can you smoke and drink? That if you smoke, you are contaminating that iron, contaminating that blood, imperfecting that, and then that contamination from the lungs goes to the blood. From the blood, it attacks the heart! That’s why shaytan wants to enter through smoking and drinking. He wants to attack the heart of the believer.
Purify Your Blood, the Beautiful Stream in Allah’s (AJ) House – Your Heart
If Allah (AJ) says qalb mumin baitullah, then the teaching that if we want to reach to this reality and we want to reach to that perfection, that the house of the believer is the house of God Almighty.
قَلْبَ الْمُؤْمِنْ بَيْتُ الرَّبْ
“Qalb al mu’min baytur rabb.”
“The heart of the believer is the House of the Lord.” Hadith Qudsi
And in God’s house, there is a beautiful stream that passes through which is the stream of our blood. And upon that blood is every imperfection or perfection. Imperfection to attack the house so that Allah (AJ) won’t reside within that house. The Divine won’t reside within a house that is contaminated by the contaminants that are running through the blood. If Allah (AJ) is not residing within that house, and the contaminants are flowing through the heart, it hits all the organs of the body and makes the body to be sick.
Your Lungs Are Your Tree of Life
The way of perfection is Allah (AJ) teaching ‘no you can’t. Perfect your breath, perfect your lungs. Your lungs are the tree of life.’ We covered this 8 years ago, but they didn’t document it good and they never wrote it. It’s the tree of life that everybody is in search of. Allah (AJ) gave that tree within the lungs. So the whole qudra, the whole power and all the tafakkur (contemplation) begins to open, it’s going to open the power of the breath. That every zikr (chanting) they’re making, they’re making it with the power of their soul and their breath. And they feel it in every cell of their body – only by a purified breath. Once that’s purified and cleansed, that iron is stamped and cleaned, moved into the heart. It’s a beautiful stream moving into the house of Allah (AJ). And Allah (AJ) stamps that light, stamps that energy and the qudra (power) upon that cell and that cell begins to radiate throughout their body. And every cell sits under a hair.
How the Moon of Awliya Begins to Shine Through Tafakkur (Contemplation)
And as soon as they energize themselves for tafakkur (contemplation), this is how the moon begins to shine. This means they begin to make their tafakkur and their contemplation. As soon as they make their contemplation and negate themselves and they flip their switch to be nothing, every cell of iron in their body becomes magnetized. From the energy that is emanating from their heart, their entire being begins to send out energy. Not through hand, but their entire being is emanating energy. Again, depending upon how much they’re able to negate themselves and how much they’re able to purify themselves. There’s no way to reach that with impurities and sicknesses. Nobody can damage the form and then claim to be giving Divinely and heavenly dresses and lights. These are the ways of Prophet (alayhi salaat us salaam) and the ways of perfection. So they teach us then perfect, dress.
Hijama (Cupping) Extracts Dirty Iron From the Body
Then that iron, to understand the importance of that iron, the only way to purify and cleanse that iron is through hijama, is the cupping of the body. They cup the back of the shoulder because all of the dirty iron of the body goes upon the shoulder. This area of the shoulder (points) is where the body takes the iron when the iron becomes of no use to the body. It sends all that iron up onto the shoulder region.
That’s the same place where the shayateen (devils) come and attack the believer, that the energy people begin to feel when they’re under attack. They never come to a believer from the front because the heart of the believer is a shield. These shayateen (devils), they come from behind and they land right onto that back with a dirty metal. And they say the cause of staph infection is from the bacteria that clings onto the metal within the blood. It means that everything of our physiology is teaching us about our reality. That when you do hijama (cupping) once or twice a year, you pull all of that negative iron. They pull and cleanse all that negative iron as if cleaning the filters of a building. Once you clean the filters of a building, it’s able to flow fresh and clean again.
Purify the Iron and Build Inner Protection to Shield You From Outside
Then taking a path of perfecting what we eat and what we drink, everything Prophet ﷺbrought for us was for the perfection of energy. So, when people don’t eat halal and don’t drink halal and don’t take care of themselves, they’re amazed at why their energy has dropped. If your energy drops, you are lending yourself to be attacked. The shield that you carry within yourself is a shield of protection.
the earth has a magnetic core. The earth has an iron core. That melted core creates a nazma and a protection around the earth. This means nothing can penetrate the earth because of its magnetic core.
Allah (AJ) says you have the same core. You have that iron within you. If you build your inner perfection and inner protection, the inner energy will protect you on the outside of your being. But if you have nothing inside, you’ll have nothing outside. It’s impossible to say I have an outside energy, but inside is rotten. It means by eating halal, why Prophet ﷺ brought it? He didn’t have any particular reasons to do that other than Allah (AJ) ordering it for the perfection of their energy. When you eat that which is blessed, that which is nourished, you are taking away all of its negative energies and bringing Allah’s (AJ) rahmah (mercy) and perfection. What you drink will bring in the perfection of your blood, so drink a lot of water to purify and sustain that blood.
Light Your Heart With the Divinely Presence!
It means everything that comes into that body is going to affect the blood and affect the heart. As much as we can bring of perfection, as much as that heart will be nourished. If that heart is nourished, it’s becoming more and more like a sun. And Allah (AJ) begins to describe, ‘That sun is eternal. When I turn that on and when I turn it off, nobody knows. If you want something to be given to you of eternity, then light the heart. Light the heart with My Divinely Presence! But my presence can’t come into the heart with all these imperfections and impurities.’
