Who is Sultan ul Awliya?
Muhammadan Reality and Naqshbandi Secrets
Qutbanniyya – Who are Qutubs?
By Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani
How to Become a Qutub
To accomplish these three standards of conduct is to reach the level of Qutbanniyya, to become a Qutub.
The scholars are the inheritors of the prophets.
عُلَمَاءِ وَرِثَةُ الْأَنْبِيَاء
“Al ‘Ulama e warithatul anbiya.”
“The scholars are the inheritors of the prophets.”
This does not refer to those scholars who gained their knowledge from books, but rather those Aqtab to whom Allah opened these six powers in their hearts, and the knowledge of their seven personal names.
Who are the Qutubs
The five highest levels of Qutub are:
- Qutb al Bilad,
- Qutb al Irshad,
- Qutb al Mutasarrif
- Qutb al Aqtab,
Qutub is the one whom Allah granted a power that brings out from the essence of Muhammad to extract knowledge from non-existence of the Prophet into this dunya.
He extracts new knowledge from the heart of the Prophet Muhammad ?. This is the first level Qutub.
- Qutub al-Bilad is responsible for the order of this world and to hold it together. He knows the needs of every race or group of creatures.
- Qutub al-Irshad advises the 124,000 Awliya.
- Qutub al-Mutassarif is authorized to channel the “happy angels” (as we described before) to different people and creatures, and is responsible even for the smallest worm that dwells inside a rock. And all of these are coming from Sayedena Muhammad (S).
- Qutub al-Aqtab supervises and is responsible for all other Aqtab
The Ghawth and his 5 Aqtab
Above all five Aqtab is the Ghawth. He is between the [Qutubul Aqtab] “Pillar of Pillars” and the Prophet. He is the pipe, the channel. Sayed Bahauddin Naqshband was one of them, as was Sayed Abdul Qadir al-Jilani. From century to century they differ.
The Aqtab and the Ghawth generate – directly from the heart of the Prophet ?
- All knowledge’s and all events that transpire in this world, from wind, to earthquakes, to rain. They must be ashraf from both paternal and maternal lineage, from Ahl al-Bayt, Hassani and Husayni. If by any chance they are not from the family of the Prophet and they are able to reach that level, then they will inherit from Salman al Farsi, for the Prophet included him as a member of Ahl al Bayt. He told his wife not to cover in front of Sayyidi Salman, saying, Salman is mine Ahlul Bayt, although he had emigrated to the Prophet from Persia.
- Every matter of the universe is in the hands of these Aqtab, coming from Allah to Prophet, from Prophet to the aqtab. Wa yahmiloon ‘arsh ar Rahmanu yaumaidhin thamaaneeya.
- Allah created eight angels to carry the Divine Throne; no one else can carry it. Allah created these angels in a form beyond description. These eight were happy to carry the Throne, not proud, but they began to consider themselves the highest level of angels.
- Allah decided to show them His Greatness and that they are nothing. He dissolved everything underneath them and they no longer had support. Then is the Throne carrying them?
- These eight angels send their power to the six awliya we just mentioned. Allah said, “I am creating a khalifa on earth.” They replied, “Are you going to create those who will make corruption on earth and shed blood and …”
- Allah showed that they would be praised ones. In fact, these Aqtabs and the Ghawth support the angels. If any of them are from other than the Naqshbandi Sufi Order, Allah gives permission to Prophet, and Prophet gives permission to their shaykh to carry the Naqshbandi Order in addition to whatever other Sufi Order they carry.
- That is why such awliya carry power from seven different tariqats.
- As Qutubs are five in number at all times, when one passes he is replaced by another.
- Allah created unique ones, the essence of the Qutubs, to take ecstasy and knowledge from every name of Allah. That knowledge they extract brings them to a state of ecstasy that no one could find except through those beautiful Names of Allah. From every unique name they can experience 700,000 different levels of ecstasy, from which they can pull out for humanity 700,000 different wisdom.
After they move into these Oceans of wisdom and knowledge and their veils are pulled away, they will reach the Divine Presence at a place where they will observe the verse Allahu nuru samawati wal ard: “Allah is the Light of the heavens and earth.” And they cannot see except that light.
اللَّـهُ نُورُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۚ
24:35 – “Allahu noorus samawati wal ardi.” (Surat An Noor)
“Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth.” (Holy Quran, The Light)
Sultan ul Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Adil Haqqani
THE QUALITY OF AWLIYA
Sultanul Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Adil Haqqani
Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Adil Haqqani is of the highest quality of Awliya (saints) so that the one who sits with Mawlana Shaykh Nazim feels that he himself is in the rank of a very great Saint (Wali). This feeling is not from himself but from the light and spiritual power of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim. He has been given power from Allah Almighty so that anyone who sits with him feels that he is so very near to Allah Almighty and to the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) and that he is always going to be close to them. This is because the spiritual power of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim immediately enters into one who sits with him which makes him to be always with Allah Almighty, the Prophets and the Saints.
When a person takes Bayyat (initiation) from Moulana, the spiritual power of Moulana Sheikh Nazim is always with that person, immaterial of how far away in distance he is from the physical presence of Moulana. Moulana will be with him through every moment until that person reaches the grave. Until the day of judgment Moulana will be with that person. Even until he reaches in front of Allah Almighty Moulana will be with him. When Allah Almighty questions this person Moulana shall answer all questions instead of him. In this time it is not possible to find this kind of Auliya like Moulana Sheikh Nazim.
Moulana says that this quality of Auliya is hidden and all of them are presently with Sahib us Zaman Sayyidina Imam Mahdi (as). The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) has now during our time left between the East and the West in all of this earth only Moulana Sheikh Nazim, who is the only one able to give this type of knowledge and wisdom to the hearts of the people.
THE CONCEPT OF SULTAN UL AWLIYA AND [QUTUB UL GHAWTH]
Moulana Sheikh Nazim is the Sultan ul Auliya of this age. Most people think that the rank of Qutub ul Ghawth is the highest because they have no knowledge of the rank of Sultan ul Awliya. Moulana Sheikh Nazim was given the rank of Qutub al Ghawth 30 years ago by his Grandshaykh. When Grandshaykh Abdullah Al Faiz ad Dagestani (q) passed away from this earth, Moulana Sheikh Nazim became the Sultan ul Auliya and he then granted the rank of Qutub al Ghawth to someone else.
In actual fact the rank of Qutub al Ghawth in comparison to the rank of Sultan ul Auliya is very low. The station of Qutub al Ghawth entails the function of arranging the needs of the physical bodies of the people. For example to have their food and to have the mercies of Allah Almighty come to them. The Sultan ul Auliya however deals with the hearts, the soul and the spirit of humanity. He is the one who makes them always to be with Allah Almighty in the place where the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) made Sajda (Prostration) on the night of Miraj (ascension).
The Sultan ul Auliya is the Khalifatullah of the time and he represents the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) while the other Saints represent one of the other 124,000 prophets. As all the other Prophets are also represented by the Seal of Prophets Sayyidina Muhammad (peace be upon him), the Sultan ul Auliya of the time also has the Tajalli and the power of all the 124,000 Prophets.
The representative of Allah Almighty during one particular age is only one and in this time and age Moulana Sheikh Nazim is this representative, and he is the Sultan ul Auliya and Khalifatullah of this time.
As the Khalifatullah or the representative of Allah Almighty in our time it is Moulana Sheikh Nazim who is inside the ka’abatullah. The ka’abatullah is also known as the Baithullah or the house of Allah. Allah Almighty is everywhere but especially in the Baithullah as He has Himself called it the house of Allah. For it to be called the house of the Lord, the Lord of the house must be in it. The Lord of the house is represented by His Khalifa who in this time is Moulana Sheikh Nazim (Q).
The rank Sultan ul Auliya in Tariqat means the rank of the Saint who possesses the secret of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him). This secret was put in the heart of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) by Allah Almighty. Thereafter the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) transmitted this secret to the heart of Abu Bakr Siddiq (RA). Thereafter this secret has been transmitted right down to our times through the Golden Chain of Spiritual Transmission of the Naqshbandi Tariqat (Silsila).
مَا صَبَ اللهُ فِيْ صَدْرِيْ شَيْءً اِلَا وَ صَبَبْتُهُ فِيْ صَدْرِي اَبِيْ بَكْر اَلصِّدِيقْ
Ma sabAllahu fi Sadri shay an illa wa sababtuhu fi sadri Abi Bakr as Siddiq.
Prophet ﷺ said: “Whatever I received, I poured in the heart of Abu Bakr.
There have not been many who have held the rank of Sultan ul Auliya from the time of the Holy Prophet [Muhammad] (peace be upon him). From the time of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) till now there are only forty of these representatives. This secret was passed down from the heart of Abu Bakr as Siddiqui (RA) to Salman al Farsi (ra) and then from Siddiqi to Siddiqi, and now during our time Moulana Sheikh Nazim is the possessor of this secret.
In the spiritual chain of Moulana Sheikh Nazim all of them preceding him were the Sultan ul Auliya of their times. For example Salman al Farsi, Yusuf al Hamadani, Abdul Khaliq al Ghujdawani, Shah Naqshaband, Moulana Shaykh Abdullah Dhagistani etc. Apart from the Saints in this chain of spiritual transmission only Moulana Abdul Qadir Jilani (Q) was of this rank.
This Divine secret of Allah Almighty which was given to the heart of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) and transmitted from heart to heart from one Siddiq to another is the Divine Secret and Divine Breath which Allah Almighty blew into Adam (as).
THE HIGH RANK AND AUTHORITY OF SULTAN UL AWLIYA
Everything that you know of is under the spiritual control of the Sultan ul Awliya. He is the one who is in charge of all mankind in this universe. He is also in charge of all the world of Jinns and Angels. As the Sultan of Mankind is also in charge of all the Jinn and of all Malaika (Angels). This Maqam (station) of Sultan ul Auliya is a Maqam related to the hearts. Not even a thought can be comprehended of the greatness of this Maqam. This Maqam in this time is related to Moulana Sheik Nazim.
Moulana has been given the power to be in every heart of every human being in this universe. He also has the immense power of being able to make the Divine Light of Allah Almighty and all the 124,000 Prophets to enter into the hearts and bodies of all humanity in just one moment.
In one moment Moulana is able not only to make an unbeliever to believe but also to be able to make him attain the rank of Siddiq (the rank of Siddiq is the highest rank of Sainthood). And to make him to always be a light of Allah Almighty to sit in front of Allah Almighty and to make him see and talk with the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and to comprehend the Holy Prophet’s spiritual rank. Moulana Sheikh Nazim has the power to make the unbeliever be like him in rank and position.
In the case of all the Prophets they received their secret from the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). In the same manner all Auliya during this time receive their secrets form the Khalifatullah of this time. As Moulana Sheikh Nazim is the Khalifatullah of this time, it is him who gives all ranks and all stations to the Auliya. No one can become a Wali or Qutub unless Moulana Sheikh Nazim gives this rank to him. Moulana is the representative of Allah Almighty who possesses this power.
Everything in this Universe has been created for the honor and for the sake of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Everything that has been created in this Universe is created from the Light of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him). Everything that we see in the first instance is the Light of Allah Almighty. Due to this reason we say “La ilaha illallah”. Then thereafter Allah Almighty reduced these lights to the Light of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) so that there would be an intermediate stage between all that we see and Allah Almighty. This is why we also say “Muhammad ur Rasulullah” in the kalima.
During every age there is a Saint responsible for all these lights. In our time this responsibility is given to Moulana Sheikh Nazim as he is now the representative of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and also of all the 124,000 prophets. When Grandshaykh Abdullah Dagestani (qas) left this world this secret was given to Moulana Sheikh Nazim in Tave Muqallam in a very big ceremony, and from this time onward he became responsible for all of creation – the Humans, Jinn’s, Angels, animals, trees, Earths, stars and everything that is created from the Light of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him).
Grandsheik Abdullah Dhagistani (qas) ordered Moulana Sheik Nazim to do about 10 to 12 seclusions (Khalwats) in a lot of places. When Moulana completed these seclusions, his physical body became annihilated and his body became a divine body which is related to Allah Almighty. It was only after this that this responsibility and secret was given to Moulana, as this is never given except under these circumstances.
THE DIVINE LIGHT AND TAJALLI OF ALLAH ALMIGHTY
Anybody who takes Bayyat from Moulana Sheikh Nazim, specially those from western countries will not leave this world except as Walis. Regarding this Moulana says “I have been ordered by Allah Almighty and by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to gather all the lights that are now coming from Western and European countries and to return them to their origin. Any European or Westerner or anyone else making Bayyat will not leave this Dunya except as an Auliya and he shall reach to the highest stations which Allah Almighty offers to beloved servants.”
Moulana also said “the light of one who makes Bayyat with me, specially those who are entering Islam now and who come to me, shall be so bright and powerful that even the sun shall appear dark besides their light. I shall make their light brighter and more powerful than the light of the sun. They shall shine in every place, all over the universes and all over the paradises”.
When Moulana Sheikh Nazim begins a lecture he does not only speak to those who are in front of him. Thousands of Auliya and millions of Jinn’s also listen to the same lecture of Moulana. Regarding this Moulana says “I am not only speaking to you. Perhaps you are only ten, or fifteen or a thousand, but hundreds of thousands of Auliya are here with me now, and millions of Jinn’s are now sitting with you and are listening to me. In my lectures I give three stations – one for you, one for the Auliya and one for the Jinn’s. In any place I sit and in every lecture that I open, the spirit of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and the Divine Light and Essence of Allah Almighty is always with me and never leaves me”. This is the power and rank of Moulana Sheikh Nazim.
Moulana Abdullah Dhagistani (Q) once said that he had dressed Moulana Sheikh Nazim with the Ninety Nine Beautiful Names of Allah Almighty including also the Ismul A’zam, the Greatest Name of Allah Almighty. Therefore do not look at Moulana Sheikh Nazim as Moulana Sheikh Nazim, but look at him as a TajJalli or Light of Allah Almighty.
Grandsheik Abdullah Dhagistani (Q) also said “It is not good to say that he is Allah as the followers of Jesus Christ say about Jesus. Instead you should say that “he is a Tajjalli or Light of Allah Almighty.” When he speaks, don’t listen to him as from Moulana Sheikh Nazim, but listen to him as if Allah Almighty is speaking to you, “ yes, He is the one who speaks to you”.
When the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) went on Miraj he reached a certain poin with Angel Gibreel (as) when the Angel said to the Prophet (peace be upon him) “Only you can enter beyond this point. If I move further I will be destroyed and there shall thereafter be no existence for me”. The Prophet said “yes, I will enter” and he went beyond this point to the utmost limits. When he did this his personality was destroyed and he became a Light of Allah Almighty. By becoming this Light he reached to Allah Almighty.
This is also the same for every Sheikh of the Naqshbandi Tariqat as they are dressed with the Divine Secret and the Divine Breath of Allah Almighty. Their bodies too have been destroyed and they have taken off their human personality. They too became a Light of Allah Almighty as it happened to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) as they continued on their journey and reached to the very Throne of Allah Almighty. Moulana Sheikh Nazim is now dressed with these lights and therefore we should look at him as a Tajjalli of Allah Almighty.
Sultan ul Awliya Speaks on Behalf of Prophet (saws)
Regarding this Grandsheik Moulana Abdullah Dhagistani (Q) said “I have ordered Moulana Sheikh Nazim into seclusion and made him reach this rank. He now has a face towards the creatures and a face towards Allah Almighty.” Therefore he is with Allah Almighty all the time and with the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) all the time. They speak to him and he speaks to them at every moment so that he can translate to the People around him all that they are in need of from Allah Almighty and the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
Moulana Sheikh Nazim does not need to have recourse to books in answering any question that his followers or visitors put to him. He knows exactly what they need to know from Allah Almighty and the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and he answers them immediately. He knows for what reason these people have come to him and for what reason they have visited him and he talks to each of them according to their capacity.
If their capacity is high then Moulana talks to them from the light of Allah Almighty. If their capacity is less than this he talks to them from the station of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and if their capacity is even less than this, he talks to them from the station of Mahdi (as) or from the station of the Auliya. Whatever station that their capacity requires Moulana is able to talk from all these stations.
Mawlana Shaykh Brings out the Secrets of Holy Quran
Grandsheik Moulana Abdullah Dhagistani (Q) also said that Moulana Sheikh Nazim will be the channel through which the secret of the Quran will enter into the heart of Sayyidina Mahdi (alai).
Grandsheik Moulana Abdullah Dhagistani (Q) has already dressed Moulana Sheikh Nazim in all these ranks. When Moulana Sheikh Nazim speaks he is not as if he is a man who looks at a map and describes some town or country. Moulana is in all the ranks that are related to the secret of the Quran. When he describes this he does so with personal experience.
Not only does Moulana describe these ranks to his followers or visitors but also dresses them in these ranks so that they will not leave this world until they are dressed with these lights and all of them become Auliya. They shall not even be ordinary Walis. They shall be in a Maqam like that of Sayyidina Mahdi (as).
THE TEACHER, THE MASTER AND THE INTERMEDIARY
Moulana Sheikh Nazim’s power is not given to him only for himself but for everyone who is related to him on the Day of Promises. All the people of the Umma now have been given by Allah Almighty to Sayyidina Mahdi (as). All of them are also now under the tutelage of Moulana Sheikh Nazim. He is now teaching them and dressing them with Maqams (stations) so that when Sayyidina Mahdi (as) comes, they will have the capacity to talk to Allah Almighty. At that time like Sayyidina Mahdi (as) the people will be able to talk to Allah Almighty. They shall also be able to talk to the Holy Prophet
Muhammad (peace be upon him) and to the 124,000 Prophets.
Allah Almighty has made Moulana Sheikh Nazim to be the teacher and the Master of these people and of the Auliya of this time so that they will all have the capacity to reach to these ranks during the time of Sayyidina Mahdi (as) and be able to sit in the lectures of Sayyidina Mahdi (as).
If there wasn’t Moulana Sheikh Nazim between us and Seyyidina Mahdi (as), or between us and the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), or between us and Allah Almighty, no one would be able to reach to the Divine Knowledge’s or to connect up with the station of the Auliya or with the station of Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) or with the station of Allah Almighty. This is because Moulana Sheikh Nazim is the intermediary between us and these stations.
Grandsheik Moulana Abdullah Dhagistani (q) has said that it is now the duty of Moulana Sheik Nazim to collect and gather every human being who had been given to him on the Day of Promises. Every human being is a light from the Light of Allah Almighty and from the Light of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). The Khalifatullah of this time, Moulana Sheikh Nazim is representing Allah Almighty and the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Therefore all humanity are also from the light of this Khalifatullah. In our time this Saint is Moulana Sheikh Nazim. It is because of this reason that Moulana Sheikh Nazim was told on the Day of Promises by Allah Almighty and the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) that these millions of people will be under his vision and that Moulana should look after them because their light is from the light of Moulana Sheikh Nazim.
This is why people find themselves attracted to Moulana Sheikh Nazim. The light of Moulana is attracting their light like a drop of water falling from the clouds is drawn to fall into the ocean. This is why when we enter and sit at a lecture of Moulana Sheikh Nazim we feel like that drop of water merging into the ocean and forget Dunya and the life of this world.
THE CONQUEROR OF THE HEARTS
Moulana Sheikh Nazim (qas) will be the one who will be in charge of the hearts of people during the time of Sayyidina Mahdi (as). He will be the Spiritual Master and the Spiritual Father of all the people living in this time. The sword of Sayyidina Mahdi (as) will take away the heads of all those who reject what Moulana Sheikh Nazim will say in that time.
Moulana Sheikh Nazim (q) has said that anyone who has made Bayyat with him and who is his mureed or follower and believes in him would be under his vision. They would always be kept safe in this world. Even if an atom bomb was to explode near him he would be protected and kept safe. A wind would be sent from paradise to this person so that he would be able to breathe the air from it and not from the nuclear waste in the atmosphere.
The Sultan Protects his Mureeds (Followers)
Allah Almighty and the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) have given to Moulana all the people of this time and during the time of Sayyidina Mahdi (as). All of them are under his vision and control. Moulana Sheikh Nazim does not even need to look at them from the station of Divine Vision as all of them are as if they are in his hand.
Moulana looks at them as if they are on the palm of his hand. He looks at them at every moment an he knows what they do at each moment. If bad situation is to come to a mureed of his, Moulana has the power to change it. Moulana’s purpose is to make this mureed to reach to Rizwanullah. Anything that obstructs the path of this mureed in reaching to this station of Rizwanullah would be taken away by Moulana Sheikh Nazim. He will clear all obstacles. If something bad is about to happen to a mureed of Moulana Sheikh Nazim, he would make a dua to Allah Almighty on behalf of this mureed and take this away from the mureed. In this manner Moulana Sheikh Nazim can enter into and change destiny (qasaullah) and the course of nature.
An example of this once happened at Mecca and Sheik Adnan relates this incident as follows: “We were in Mecca with Moulana Sheikh Nazim making Tawaf. The sun was out and there was not a cloud in sight. Moulana then prayed to Allah Almighty saying “Oh! Allah Almighty, I have come here as Your guest to please You. I would like it to rain so that I can take some Baraka from the rain that comes down at the Ka’aba. The clouds built up and it began to rain. It rained so hard that all Mecca began to look like a river.
THE LOVE FOUNTAIN OF THE HEARTS
Today the hearts of the Europeans and the Westerners are attracted to the Naqshbandi Tariqat more than the Arabs and those from other countries. This is because their hearts are wide and open not narrow and closed. During the time of Sayyidina Mahdi (as), Moulana Sheikh Nazim will be in charge of the hearts of all the people. Sayyidina Mahdi (as) would be in charge of establishing the Sharia while Moulana Sheikh Nazim will be the love fountain and love center for the people. He shall be entrusted with the opening out of the hearts of the people.
Every Auliya in this time sees Moulana Sheikh Nazim as a Light of Allah Almighty. No one can even imagine the spiritual shape of Moulana Sheikh Nazim, because all the heavens and the earth enter into him. The physical shape of the one who has the Divine secret of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) must also closely resemble the physical shape of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). As Moulana Sheikh Nazim has this secret, his physical shape closely resembles that of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
All those who come to visit Moulana Sheikh Nazim and sit with him will also gradually have their physical features slowly transformed. This is because they are not seated with an ordinary person. They are seated with an extraordinary power which is Moulana Sheikh Nazim. The more that a person sits with Moulana Sheikh Nazim, the more will his love increase and the higher will be his ranks and every Auliya in this time will have the shape of Moulana Sheikh Nazim.
THE MIRACLE OF MIRACLES
Moulana Sheikh Nazim is one of the most remarkable Saints of all time. This type of Sainthood is not generally known by the people. All that they know is that somehow their hearts are attracted to him. People don’t even know why their hearts are attracted to Moulana in this manner. This is because he is one of the biggest Saints of all time.
Moulana does not generally perform miracles in the nature of flying in the air or walking on water as he says that even Shaitan has the power to perform these types of miracles. His miracles are however, of a different type. His miracles are to be found in the day to day life of his mureeds (followers). For example he is with every one of his mureeds at every given moment and all the time.
If at any time a mureed calls for him saying “Madad Ya Sayyidi” Moulana immediately sends a divine look to his heart and then the heart of this mureed is lit up with a Divine Light. This Light is sent by Moulana from his heart to the heart of this mureed. This mureed shall then be in a good situation and the bad thing that was to have happened to him would have been taken away from him.
Another of the miracles of Moulana Sheikh Nazim is the miracle in the grave. When the Angels appear in the mureeds grave to question him, Moulana Sheikh Nazim will immediately be there and say to the Angels “Don’t question my follower, question me instead of him and I will answer on his behalf. “The Angels shall not be able to bear the Light of Moulana Sheikh Nazim and due to this they shall be forced to go away.
During the time of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) the Light of his heart came onto the hearts of the Sahabas around him. This is also so with Moulana Sheikh Nazim. The same Light as in the case of the Sahabas shall come from the heart of Moulana to the hearts of his followers. For as long as a person sits with Moulana Sheikh Nazim this very same light shall at every moment come onto the heart of this person. This is the case for every follower, guest or visitor of Moulana Sheikh Nazim.
A person if even for only once visits Moulana Sheikh Nazim he shall not leave this life except as a believer. This is because, Allah Almighty shall ask this person “did you in this life of yours see any Sheiks?” He will then answer “Yes, I have seen Moulana Sheikh Nazim.” Then it will be said to him “Let Moulana Sheikh Nazim come.” This is the miracle of Moulana Sheikh Nazim.
Still another miracle is that when on the Day of Judgement Allah Almighty asks as to what a person (a person who had taken Bayyat from Moulana Sheikh Nazim, believed in him and visited him) did during his lifetime? Moulana Sheikh Nazim shall act as this person’s lawyer and defender.
Moulana will not allow any of his mureeds to enter hell. He will not even let them to enter the Paradises that are known to the people. No , Moulana Sheikh Nazim will make them enter the Paradise that is related to Allah Almighty. The ordinary Paradises vanish into nothing when compared with the lights of this Paradise which is the Paradise that is related to Allah Almighty. Moulana Sheikh Nazim shall make all his followers to enter into this Paradise.
THE POSSESSOR OF THE PRESERVED TABLETS
Grandsheik Moulana Abdullah Dhagistani (Q) said that the preserved tablet in each time and age is the Saint (Wali) that represents the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and Allah Almighty. In this time Moulana Sheikh Nazim is the Saint who represents Allah Almighty and the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Therefore the Preserved Tablet in this time is Moulana Sheikh Nazim. All Auliya see him now in this rank. The knowledge that comes in from the Preserved Tablet is really from the light of the palm of the Saint who represents Allah Almighty and the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). In this time and age, this great Saint is Moulana Sheikh Nazim (Q).
Every time that Moulana Sheikh Nazim gives a lecture, he looks into the Preserved Tablet. Moulana generally has a habit of looking slightly upwards before commencing a lecture and then he continues delivering his lecture. This is because he reads what he is going to say from the Preserved Tablet. Moulana once said “when I pray, I look to see what is written in the Preserved Tablet for me to recite in Salat ul Zuhr and also for every prayer I do the same to find out what I should recite during that prayer from the Holy Quran. I don’t walk from this place to that except by looking and reading the Preserved Tablet. “Moulana is the one who is in this time giving what Allah Almighty wants to give to any Saint and to all the people according to what is written for them in the Preserved Tablet. He is writing it to them bringing this knowledge both from Allah Almighty and the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
Moulana gives an answer to any question that is asked from him from the Preserved Tablet. Moulana says that there are many Preserved Tablets. There is a Preserved Tablet for the people, a Preserved Tablet for the Ulema (scholars), and there is a Preserved Tablet for the Awliya (saints). Then there is a Preserved Tablet for the Khalifatullah and a Preserved Tablet for the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Moulana says that he can talk from all the preserved Tablets because he is in all these ranks. This is because Grandsheik Moulana Abdullah Dhagistani (Q) gave to Moulana Sheikh Nazim the secret of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
Moulana Sheikh Nazim is the representative of Allah Almighty and he possesses the Divine Secret of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). He is also now the representative of Allah Almighty because of which he is present in every cell of the Universe. How can it be otherwise because he is representing Allah Almighty in this Universe. Therefore he has to be in every place, in every star and in every part and portion of the Universe. This is why he is in every cell of the Universe.
Haqiqatul Tay – To be in Many Places at Same Time
Moulana Sheikh Nazim can also be present in his shape and body in several places at the same time. Bayazid Bistami (Q) (one of the Great Grandsheikhs of the Naqshbandi Tariqat) once multiplied himself and took on 24,000 bodies and prayed prayers at 24,000 different places. The people of all these towns and countries bore witness that they prayed with Bayazid Bistami (ra) on that Friday.
Where Moulana Sheikh Nazim is concerned he is able to multiply himself and take on between 70,000 and 700,000 such bodies and to appear in as many places at the same time. Bayazid Bistami (ra) lived a thousand years ago. And the Tajjalli of Moulana Sheikh Nazim is stronger and more powerful and more precious as he now has the secrets of all the previous Grandsheik’s including that of Bayazid Bistami (RA) in his heart. He also possesses the secrets of all the prophets and the secret of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in his heart. He is therefore the most remarkable Saint in the Divan of the Saints of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
Moulana Sheikh Nazim is not only in our earth but he is also in a lot of other places which are not related to our earth. He is present in all these other places and he is also present with us at the same time. For example, there is a mountain called the “Mountain of Qaf”. This mountain is not related to this Earth. There are many Auliya of high rank and station in this mountain. Moulana is the Imam of them all. He leads the prayer on this mountain on every Friday at Jummah.
Whenever Moulana Sheikh Nazim delivers a lecture to his followers or to his visitors he also is with the Auliya on this “Mountain of Qaf” making this very same lecture. This lecture is not only for those people who are listening to him at that moment but also to all those who have been related on the Day of Promises to Moulana Sheikh Nazim by having it written for them that they should listen to this lecture.
When Moulana Sheikh Nazim lectures to somebody, this lecture is not meant for that somebody only, but for all the people throughout the East and throughout the West. His lectures are for all the Auliya and for the hearts of all the people in all the Universes in our time. This is because all of them need the secret of Quran to reach to the time of Seyyidina Mahdi (alai) who is going to be here soon.
TAKING THE SOUL AND NO QUESTIONING IN THE GRAVE
As for anyone who is related to Moulana Sheikh Nazim as a mureed the Angel of Death, Izrael (as) will have nothing to do with him. The soul of this mureed at the time of his death will be taken by Moulana Sheikh Nazim. He shall look at the mureed and immediately the soul of that mureed will leave his body. There is nothing for either the Angel of Death or for the Angels of the Grave to do with the mureeds of Moulana Sheikh Nazim. This is because it has been so ordered and it is by the Divine Power of Allah Almighty which has been given to him that Moulana Sheikh Nazim is so empowered. This is specially for Moulana Sheikh Nazim.
GRANTS GIVEN TO MAWLANA SHAYKH NAZIM
Moulana Sheikh Nazim has been given the grant that when in a lecture he speaks of the ranks of the Prophets or the Auliya all the people who sit with him at this lecture will also be dressed in these same ranks as these Prophets and Auliya that Moulana Sheikh Nazim speaks of. It is for this reason that Moulana often talks in his lectures of Prophets and Auliya so that he is able to dress these ranks to all those who sit and listen to his lectures.
Sultan ul Awliya Takes Away the Sins of his Mureeds (followers)
Moulana Sheikh Nazim also speaks about bad deeds when he addresses people in his lectures. The one who listens to this lecture shall not be asked of any bad deed or sin that Moulana happens to mention in the course of this lecture. He does not mention these bad deeds to stop the mureeds from doing them, but in order to take away his bad deeds or sins. He then puts his mureed in his Mercy Oceans then he throws them into the Mercy Oceans of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and finally into the Mercy Oceans of Allah Almighty.
All the bad deeds and sins concerning which Moulana speaks during the course of his lectures to the mureed will not be asked about from the mureed on the Day of Judgement. This is because Moulana Sheikh Nazim immediately makes a Shafa’ah (intercession) and asks forgiveness from Allah Almighty regarding the sins and bad deeds that he has mentioned in his lecture. It is for this reason that you see Moulana Sheikh Nazim referring to so many sins and bad deeds during the course of a lecture so that he would be able to put his mureeds into his Mercy Oceans.
Look at the Spiritual Face of the Mawlana Shaykh
Do not look at Moulana Sheikh Nazim as you see him, as a body with his bodily functions of eating, drinking and sitting with you. Instead look at his other face, the face that is related to Allah Almighty and to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). This other face of Moulana Sheikh Nazim is the Spiritual and Divine Power that is controlling all the Universes which include all the worlds of humanity, all the worlds of Jinn and all the worlds of Angels. All of them have been given to Moulana and he shall return all of them to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and to Allah Almighty as they were given to him. He shall return all of them cleansed, without sins or bad deeds.
Moulana is not going to say by way of excuse that this particular person or that, was taken away from him by Shaitan. No, he is not going to say that. He is going to return all of them pure as they were given to him. Regarding this Moulana says “I have been dressed by Divine Power so that I will be able to return everyone to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and to Allah Almighty as they gave them to me. I shall return them without sins and without bad deeds. I shall also dress them in all ranks, highly positioned ranks, ranks that are dressed by the Auliya and give them to Allah Almighty”. This is a grant and a miracle of Moulana Sheikh Nazim.
Grandsheik Moulana Abdullah Dhagistani (Q) said that even Seyyidina Mahdi (as) is a follower and a student of Moulana Sheik Nazim because without the channel of Moulana Sheikh Nazim the secret of the Quran which has been passed down from the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to Abu Bakr as Siddique (Ral), and from him right down the Golden chain of Succession of the Naqshbandi Tariqat to Moulana Sheikh Nazim, cannot enter into the heart of Seyyidina Mahdi (as). Moulana Sheikh Nazim is going to teach Seyyidina Mahdi (as) the knowledge of the Secret of the Quran. In this respect Seyyidina Mahdi (alai) is student of Moulana Sheikh Nazim. Moulana Sheikh Nazim is the key of the Secret of the Quran and he is the one who is going to plant this secret in the hearts of people.
ENDLESS HORIZONS- BARZAKH
For many years Moulana Sheikh Nazim has been planting this Secret which is the Secret of the Quran in the hearts of all those who have left this Dunya and are now in Barzakh. Presently, Moulana Sheikh Nazim is planting this Secret in the hearts of the living people. To do this Moulana Sheikh Nazim goes out of his body every night. All the bodies which has a soul in them gather in front of Moulana and he plants the Secret of the Quran in them. This is one of Moulana’s duties till the coming of Seyyidina Mahdi (as).
After the coming of Seyyidina Mahdi (as) and in the days of Seyyidina Mahdi (as) he will give the knowledge of the Secret of the Quran to selected people while he will let everyone else to know certain aspects of the Secret of the Quran. Moulana will give power also to some of his followers and certain people with him.
If one knows the Secret of the Quran and someone was to ask him about the sun, for example, he would be able to command the sun “come here” and the reality of the Sun shall come to him and he would be able to explain it to all the people who are sitting with him. If he wanted to explain to them about the moon, all he would have to do is to ask the moon to come to him and he would be able to explain to them about the moon which will appear in front of him by the Divine Power of Moulana Sheikh Nazim.
Sheik Adnan relates that once when he was in Mecca making Tawaf with Moulana Sheikh Nazim a person with a long beard came up to Moulana Sheikh Nazim, kissed his hand and continued to do Tawaf with Moulana. Moulana Sheikh Nazim then told those who were present with him on that occasion that this person was Khidr (as) and that he had come specially to kiss Moulana’s hand and to perform Tawaf with him.
Sheik Adnan also relates that on another occasion when he was performing Tawaf around the Ka’aba with Moulana Sheikh Nazim a very old man came up to Moulana, kissed him, spoke to him and performed Tawaf with Moulana. Thereafter this old man disappeared without a trace. When Moulana was asked as to who this old man was, he answered that this man was one of the sons of the Adam before our Adam (as).
There have been 124,000 Adams in all, with their sons of which our Adam (as) was the last. This was one of the sons of the Adam before our Adam and he had come to kiss Moulana’s hand and to perform Tawaf with Moulana because he had had this promise on the Day of promises and that it was written in the Divine Tablet. Moulana as the Khalifatullah of this time and as the representative of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) during this time is not only for us but also for all the Adams and their sons who came before us. He is the communicator who connects them with the world of Allah Almighty and the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
Moulana Sheikh Nazim says that in comparison with the number of People in the other worlds, the people of this world are nothing. There are so many of them, Moulana says, that compared to the Sohbet (association) that he makes with the people in these other worlds and other Universes, the people in this Earth are so few.
Everyday the one who sits with Moulana constantly improves. He feels that his knowledge increases daily. This gets better and better until he reaches a stage where he will have nothing to do with himself. Instead of himself he will see Moulana Sheikh Nazim. When this happens Moulana immediately takes them and puts them in the cave with Seyyidina Mahdi (as) as they are so powerful it is not possible for the other people of the Earth to bear them.
All that has been written here about Moulana Sheikh Nazim is very little in comparison to what he really is because the contents above are only a small part of the knowledge’s available about him. Apart from this fact there is also the reason that it is not possible for the human mind to grasp and comprehend the reality of the rank of the Sultan ul Auliya. Moulana Sheikh Nazim is the possessor of this rank in our age. This is why Moulana says, “No one really knows me. All that they know about me are only some aspects of me”.
May Allah Almighty Bless Moulana Sheik Nazim Adil (Q)!
