Sultanate of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ and the Naqshbandi Taweez
The Haq (Truth) Has Come
﴾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)
Who Has Seen Prophet Muhammad ﷺ Has Seen Haq
Hadith of Prophet ﷺ is that ‘Who Has Seen Me (Muhammad ﷺ) Has Seen The Truth’
[قَالَ أَبُو قَتَادَةَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ﷺ “ مَنْ رَآنِي فَقَدْ رَأَىٰ الْحَقَّ [متفق عليه البُخَارِي 6996، مُسْلِم 2267)
Qala Abu Qatadah qala Rasulullahi (saws): “Man ra aani, faqad ra’aa alHaq.”
Abu Qatada reported that Allah’s Messenger (pbuh) said: “Who has seen me, has seen the truth.” [Imam Al Bukhari 6996, Imam Muslim 2267]
Allah (AJ) Gives the Kingdom to Whom He Wills
﴾قُلِ اللَّهُمَّ مَالِكَ الْمُلْكِ تُؤْتِيِّ الْمُلْكَ مَنْ تَشَاءُ وَتَنْزِعُ الْمُلْكَ مِمَّنْ تَشَاءُ٬ وَتُعِزُّ مَنْ تَشَاءُ وَتُذِلَّ مَنْ تَشَاءُ بِيَدِكَ الْخَيْرُ. اِنَّكَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْئٍ قَدِيْرٌ سُوْرَةْ آَلِ عِمْرَان ﴿٢٦
3:26 – “Qulillahumma Malikul mulki, tu’til mulka man tashaau wa tanzi’ul mulka mimman tasha’u, wa tu’izzu man tasha’u, wa tudhillu man tasha’u, bi yadikal khayr, innaka ‘ala kulli shay’in qadir.” (Surat Ali-Imran)
“Say: O Allah, Master of the Kingdom, You give the Kingdom to whom You will, and You Take away the Kingdom from whom You will, You honor whome You will and You humble whom You will; in Your hand is [all] the good, Indeed, You are over all things Powerful.” (Family of Imran, 3:26)
The Taweez is a Top View of the Divine Court
The Divinely Throne and the Naqshbandi Taweez
- The Throne (al-‘Arsh) is the Kingdom.
- The Pillars of the Throne are the Four Main Supports.
- Those brought near are the muqarabeen who circumambulate the Throne and Praise the King.
- The bearer of this heavenly seal proudly displays their love for the King of the Heavens and the Earth and seeks His Protection.
- Image in Center ‘Allah Haq’ is the hand of truth: four fingers and thumb with ha.
The Understanding of the Divine Court
Allah (AJ) is in The Heart of His Habib ﷺ Who Sits On the Throne
- Allah (AJ) can never be seen and nothing may encompass Allah (AJ).
- Creation sits upon a Throne and Allah (AJ) sits upon his heart.
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))
Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is the Eternal Messenger
That is why Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said, ‘I was a Nabi before Adam (as) was between water and clay.’
“قَالَ رَسُولَ اللَّه صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: “كُنْتُ نَبِيًّا وَآدَمُ بَيْنَ الْمَاءِ وَالطِّينِ
Qala Rasulullahi ﷺ “Kuntu Nabiyan wa Adama baynal Maa e wat Teen.”
“I was a Prophet and Adam was between water and clay.” Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
He is teaching us that his eternal position in the Divine Presence is in the world of souls and light. This is a timeless dimension. He is the Messenger of Allah (AJ). The messenger, the one who speaks on Allah’s (AJ) behalf, to all creation, eternally. Who is created before the physical creation of the form known as Adam (as). The Divine Kingdom was created first. The Divine Kingdom has no time! Time is only relevant to earthly life based on the sun, moon, and Earth.
Nothing Can Come Between Ahad and Sayyidina Ahmad ﷺ
Between Ahad (AJ) and Sayyidina Ahmad ﷺ, there is no created being between them.
﴾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)
All heavenly beings must go to Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. He is the shafi, the intercessor. He hears Allah’s (AJ) Holy Command “Qul.” Nothing in creation can carry the power in the qaf of Qul, except the Messenger of Allah (AJ).
﴾وَمَا كَانَ لِبَشَرٍ أَن يُكَلِّمَهُ اللَّـهُ إِلَّا وَحْيًا أَوْ مِن وَرَاءِ حِجَابٍ أَوْ يُرْسِلَ رَسُولًا فَيُوحِيَ بِإِذْنِهِ مَا يَشَاءُ ۚ إِنَّهُ عَلِيٌّ حَكِيمٌ ﴿٥١
42:51 – “Wa maa kaana libasharin any yukallimahul laahu illaa wahyan aw minw waraaa’i hijaabin aw yursila Rasoolan fa yoohiya bi iznihee maa yashaaa’; innahoo ‘Aliyyun Hakeem” (Surat Ash-Shura)
“It is not fitting for a man that Allah should speak to him except by inspiration, or from behind a veil, or by the sending of a messenger to reveal, with Allah’s permission, what Allah wills: for He is Most High, Most Wise.” (The Consultation, 42:51)
﴾وَمَا يَنطِقُ عَنِ الْهَوَىٰ ﴿٣﴾ إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا وَحْيٌ يُوحَىٰ ﴿٤
53:3-4 – “Wa ma yantiqu ‘anil hawa. (3) In huwa illa wahyun yooha. (4)” (Surat An-Najm)
“Nor does he (Prophet Muhammad (s) speak from [his own] desire. (3) He is not but a revelation revealed. (4)” (The Star, 53:3-4)
The ‘Arsh (Throne) in Arabic Represents Kingdom
Know that in Arabic, ‘the Throne’ is a designation by which the kingdom is meant.
By: Shaykh Al-Akbar Sayyidina Ibn Arabi
(The Throne and its angelic inhabitants)
- Then Allah (AJ) brought into existence the pure darkness which is opposite this light, which is in the position of absolute non-existence, opposite absolute existence.
- When He brought it into existence, that light flowed onto it with an essential out flowing with the help of nature.
- So that light repaired its disarray and the body appeared which is designated as the Throne.
- Then the name the Rahman settled on it by the name, the Outwardly Manifest. That was the first of the world of creation to appear.
﴾الرَّحْمَـٰنُ عَلَى الْعَرْشِ اسْتَوَىٰ ﴿٥
20:5 – “ArRahmanu ‘alal ‘arshi istawa.” (Surat Taha)
“The Most Merciful [who is] above the Throne established.” (Taha, 20:5)
The Angels Surrounding the Throne of Haq
- From that mixed light, which is like the light of dawn, He created the angels which encircle the seat. That is His words, ‘You will see the angels encircling the Throne proclaiming the praise of their Lord.’
- They have no other occupation than to encircle the Throne, proclaiming His praise. We explained the creation of the universe in our book, ‘Uqla al-Mustawfiz’. We have used the principles for this chapter.
﴾وَتَرَى الْمَلَائِكَةَ حَافِّينَ مِنْ حَوْلِ الْعَرْشِ يُسَبِّحُونَ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّهِمْ ۖ وَقُضِيَ بَيْنَهُم بِالْحَقِّ وَقِيلَ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّـهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ ﴿٧٥
39:75 – “Wa taral malaaa’ikata haaaffeena min hawlil ‘Arshi yusabbihoona bihamdi Rabbihim wa qudiya bainahum bilhaqqi wa qeelal hamdu lillaahi Rabbil ‘aalameen” (Surat Az-Zumar)
“And thou wilt see the angels surrounding the Throne on all sides, singing Glory and Praise to their Lord. The Decision /judgement between them will be in truth/justice, and the cry (on all sides) will be, ‘Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds!'” (The Troops, 39:75)
Understanding The Haq (Truth)
The Word Haq in Ilm Huroof (Knowledge of Letters)
Haq (truth): Ha-8, Qaf-100 = Haq 108
- 108th Surat is Kawthar (Abundance), Fountain of life and knowledge, source of zamzam.
How The Word Allah (AJ) Relates to Haq ﷺ
- Kalima Allah (AJ) in abjad adds up to 1+30+30+5 = 66
66th Name of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ in Dalail al Khairat is Haq (the Truth)
Allah’s (AJ) Reflection in Divine Mirror is Sayyidina Haq ﷺ
Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ is the Light and Reflection of the Haq
If Allah (AJ) cannot be seen, then His proofs and signs must be visible. The greatest of His signs is Muhammadur RasulAllah ﷺ. He is Allah’s (AJ) Light and a reflection of the truth. Allah (AJ) in abjad value equals 66. The 66th name of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ is Haq! In Holy Quran, Surat al-Qalam, “Khuluq Azeem.”
﴾وَإِنَّكَ لَعَلَىٰ خُلُقٍ عَظِيمٍ ﴿٤
68:4 – “Wa innaka la’ala khuluqin ‘azheem.” (Surat Al-Qalam)
“Truly, You (O Muhammad!) are of a magnificent character.” (The Pen, 68:4)
Four Known Things of Existence
By: Shaykh Al-Akbar Sayyidina Ibn Arabi
Know that known things are four:
The Real Al-Haqq (truth) who is described with absolute existence because He is neither caused by anything nor the cause of anything.
He is the Creator of causes and exists by His Essence from own His Essence. Knowledge of Him refers to knowledge of His existence, and His existence is not other than His essence. However, His Essence is not known, but the attributes ascribed to Him are known.
This means the attributes of meanings, which are the attributes of perfection. Knowledge of the reality of the Essence is impossible since it is not known by either proof or logical demonstration and is untouched by definition. Allah (AJ) is not like anything and nothing is like Him.
So, how can the one who is like things be like the One who resembles nothing and nothing resembles Him? Gnosis of Him is that, ‘There is nothing like Him’ and ‘Allah cautions you about Himself’. The shari’ah (Divine Law) includes the prohibition against reflection about the Essence of Allah (AJ). Reflect upon His Creation, best of Creation is Muhammad RasulAllah ﷺ.
Allah (AJ) Subjected Heavens and Earth to Prophet Muhammad ﷺ
Finally there is the fourth known which is the man, Muhammad ﷺ, the khalif (representative) appointed by Allah (AJ) in this world which is subject to him.
Allah said, ‘He has subjected to you [Muhammadan ﷺ Kingdom] whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth, all together, from Him.’
﴾وَسَخَّرَ لَكُم مَّا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ جَمِيعاً مِّنْهُ إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لَّقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ ﴿١٣
45:13 – “Wa sakhkhara lakum ma fis Samawati wa ma fil Ardi jamee’an minhu, inna fee dhalika la ayatin liqawmin yatafakkaron.” (Surat Al-Jathiya)
“And He has subjected/gave the authority to you [Sayyidina Mahmood (pbuh)], as from Him, all that is in the heavens and on earth: Behold, in that are Signs indeed for those who reflect/Contemplate [Meditate].” (The Crouching, 45:13)
Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ is the Truth and the Greatest Sign of Allah (AJ)
Now understands that seeking Allah (AJ) and pursuing ma’rifah (gnosticism). Allah (AJ) will not be seen. Allah’s (AJ) Greatest of signs is to be witnessed. When one arrives to the the Divine Court, the Truth will be witnessed. That Truth is Muhammad RasulAllah ﷺ.
Malik al Hayat (King of Oceans of Eternity)
Malik al Dunya (King of Manifested World) MHM
This Ayat is Upon the Entrance to the Presence of the King
This ayat (verse) is upon your entrance to the Presence of The King; enter from the door of truth and exit from the door of truth.
﴾وَقُل رَّبِّ أَدْخِلْنِي مُدْخَلَ صِدْقٍ وَأَخْرِجْنِي مُخْرَجَ صِدْقٍ وَاجْعَل لِّي مِن لَّدُنكَ سُلْطَانًا نَّصِيرًا ﴿٨٠
17:80 – “Wa qul Rabbi adkhelni mudkhala Sidqin wa akhrejni mukhraja Sidqin waj’al li min ladunka Sultanan NaSeera.” (Surat Al-Isra)
“Say: O my Lord! Let my entry be by the Gate of Truth and Honour, and likewise my exit by the Gate of Truth and Honour; and grant me from Your Presence a Victorious King to aid (me).” (The Night Journey, 17:80)
