Prophet   (pbuh) is Walking Quran

 ‘Huwa Dhikrun wa Qur’an Mubeen’ 36:69

From the Realities of Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani (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

وَمَا عَلَّمْنَاهُ الشِّعْرَ وَمَا يَنبَغِي لَهُ إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا ذِكْرٌ وَقُرْآنٌ مُّبِينٌ
36:69 – “Wa ma ‘allamnahu shi’ra wa ma yanbaghee lahu, in huwa illa dhikrun wa Quranun Mubeen.” (Surah YaSeen)

“We have not taught him (Prophet Muhammad) poetry, nor it is befitting for him. He (Prophet Muhammad) is not but Zikr (Remembrance/Praise) and the Clear Quran.” (Holy Quran, YaSin 36:69)

InshaAllah we are always asking to be nothing and entering into the oceans of Rahmah, and that Allah ‘Azza wa Jal dress us and bless us. We take a path of efface, that reminding ourself to be nothing; to be nothing and that Allah ‘Azza wa Jal, the Creator, God, or whatever name we want to identify that reality of the Creator, is All Powerful, Almighty, is everything and I am nothing. 

As we take a path of learning to shut off, that Allah ‘Azza wa Jal can turn on and can send the lights and send energies upon the heart and upon the soul. Alhamdulillah, we took a path of haqqa’iq (spiritual realities) and under the teachings of awliyaullah (saints/friends of Allah), they teach us the greatness of Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam; that to know the greatness of your Prophet alayhis salaatus salaam, to appreciate what Allah ‘Azza wa Jal has given to us. 

Our life is about Love of Prophet Muhammad (saws)

We are a people whom our life is focusing on love of Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we are Muhammadiyun. InshaAllah, Allah ‘Azza wa Jal grant us that light and that title. That the moon focuses on the sun, and it talks and speaks and its whole focus is the sun. And if we are trying to follow the lights of Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that they begin to inspire within our hearts that: take a path of that muhabbat, that love Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam more than you love yourself. That understand the character and akhlaaq, the khuloq al-‘azheem that Allah ‘Azza wa Jal described Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that, “You are of a magnificent character.” 

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.” (Holy Quran, The Pen 68:4)

So means that with good manners and good character, you begin to emulate the way of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Then by the chanting and the Durood-e Shareef and the zikr, it begins to tat ma’inna quloob

13:28 – “… ala bi dhikrillahi tatma’innul Qulob.” (Surat ar Ra’d)

“…For without doubt in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find satisfaction.” (Holy Quran, the Thundar 13:28)

It brings a tranquillity onto the heart and brings lights into the heart, brings beatific dresses upon the heart, upon the soul, upon the tongue, upon the face so that everything begins to change. 

Understand Greatness of Prophet Muhammad (saws)

As Awliyaullah begin to dress us and bless us, then they begin to teach us that: “Wa ma arsalnaaka illa rahmatan lil ‘aalameen,”

وَمَا أَرْ‌سَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا رَ‌حْمَةً لِّلْعَالَمِينَ ١٠٧
21:107 – “Wa maa arsalnaka illa Rahmatan lil’alameen.” (Surat Al Anbiva)

“And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds.” (The Prophets 21:107)

Because many people don’t understand the importance of Sayyiduna MuhammadMadina - Muhammad RasolAllah & doves, Madina, peace sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so they don’t understand the importance of Milad an-Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the birthday of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam; that every moment is a reality for us but you have to take a path in which you begin to love Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and then begin to learn about the greatness of Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. 

Then we understand that this entire universe is under that light, and that this entire universe was waiting for the arrival of that light, from the heavens to come into this dunya. And once it entered in had e dunya, (physical world), it was a completion of God’s favour upon creation. That they were existing within that light, but its full reality was not achieved until Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam’s physicality entered into this world. And from this dunya, it dressed all entire universes, that rahmah (mercy). 

ظَهَرَ الدِّيْنُ الْمُؤَيَدْ                 بِظُهُوْرِ النَّبِيْ اَحْمَدْ

Zahara ad dinul mu’ayyad
Bi zuhurin Nabi Ahmad

The supported religion has been revealed  
With the arrival of the prophet Ahmad

When we understand the greatness and the azimat an-Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam of what Allah ‘Azza wa Jal’s Greatness has dressed upon the reality of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then we slowly, slowly begin to understand the importance of Milad an-Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam [celebrating the birth of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)]

Holy Quran 2:151: Feekum (Within You)

Prophet (saws) is Within you, Purifies you and Teaches you the Book and its Wisdom

1. Feekum (within you): Light of Sayyidina Muhammad (pbuh) is within You

And we were talking the last few nights from ayat al-Qur’an of ‘feekum’, Surat al-Baqara, 2:151.

كَمَا أَرْ‌سَلْنَا فِيكُمْ رَ‌سُولًا مِّنكُمْ… ﴿١٥١
2:151 – “‘Kama arsalna feekum Rasulam minkum …” (Surat al Baqara) 

“Just as We have sent among (within) you a messenger from your own, …” (Holy Quran,  2:151)

We were describing that Allah ‘Azza wa Jal describes that Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is amongst you; and some ulema said he’s amongst you, alayhis salaatus salaam, and awliyaullah come into our lives and not only the light of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is amongst you, but within you. That when light comes to be present, it doesn’t stay by itself. It diffuses into everything. 

Greatness of Light is that it Pushes away Darkness

When we turn off the lights in the room and turn on one light and see how it moves into the room, light and the miracle of light, is it pushes through all darkness. Just one light is enough; one little candlelight is enough to illuminate infinite amount of darkness. That is the greatness of light, this is the greatness of the Mercy of Allah ‘Azza wa Jal, that as much as you put yourself into darkness, all it takes is but one light, one candle, one pilot light for Allah ‘Azza wa Jal to open; and immediately that light is already pushing away the darkness. You can add infinite more darkness and it doesn’t take anything from that light. It doesn’t extinguish that light. 

This is Allah’s greatness, that your hasanat and your good deeds can never be taken away; just keep adding your good deeds, keep adding your good deeds. This life become like a candle, become like three candles, like five candles and begin to illuminate the entire darkness and push away all difficulties. 

2. YuZakikum (Purifies): Light of Prophet (saws) Purifies you

– Then Allah ‘Azza wa Jal describing that Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam: Kama arsalna fee kum rasolun,

كَمَا أَرْ‌سَلْنَا فِيكُمْ رَ‌سُولًا مِّنكُمْ يَتْلُو عَلَيْكُمْ آيَاتِنَا وَيُزَكِّيكُمْ …﴿١٥١

2:151 – “‘Kama arsalna feekum Rasulam minkum yatlo ‘Alaykum ayatina, wa yuzakkeekum …” (Surat al Baqara) 

“Just as We have sent among (within) you a messenger from your own, reciting to you Our Signs, and purifying you, …” (Quran,  The Cow 2:151)

We described before that ‘zaki (purification), that Allah ‘Azza wa Jal describing that, “We have sent this light of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be amongst you. He rehearses to you the signs, the ayat and the signs of the heavens and of Allah ‘Azza wa Jal.” 

Allah ‘Azza wa Jal then describes, “He sanctifies and purifies you.” And we talked before how that light purifies: “qul jaa al-haqq wa zahaqal baatil,”

وَ قُلْ جَآءَالْحَقُّ وَزَهَقَ الْبَطِلُ، إِنَّ الْبَطِلَ كَانَ زَهُوقًا
17:81 – “Wa qul jaa alHaqqu wa zahaqal baatil, innal batila kana zahooqa.” (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)

That with the Haqq of Allah ‘Azza wa Jal comes, means that with one Durood e Shareef, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that’s what Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asks, ‘just mention me once’.

Allah (aj) Wants us to mention Prophet (saws)’s name –
in Shahadah, Adhan and Salat

Allah ‘Azza wa Jal even more infinite and said that, ‘Even you call the prayer, you have to mention Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam; you enter into the salaah, you have to mention Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.’ 

At every instant, and we make shahadah to be purified and clean; we say:

Ash hadu Allah ilaha illallah, wa ash hadu anna Muhammadun abduhu wa rasolu

“I bear witness that there is diety/God but Allah, and
I bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is the servant and messenger of Allah.”

Any time you think that you’ve left your deen, you’ve gone out of your faith, you’ve entered into bad character, shaykhs come and say, ‘Make your shahadah, come back into your Islam.’ So what kind of power Allah ‘Azza wa Jal gave to the mentioning of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam’s name? 

Then on your deathbed, you’re to recite Surat al-YaSeen, which is all the secrets of Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to be dressed upon the one who is leaving this earth and returning back to their home. And Allah ‘Azza wa Jal’s Rahmah is that: recite Surat al-YaSeen with all its secrets being dressed upon that soul, all of its realities to go back into the presence of Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

فَسُبْحَانَ الَّذِي بِيَدِهِ مَلَكُوتُ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَإِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ ﴿٨٣
36:83
“Fasubhanal ladhee biyadihi Malakotu kulli shay in wa ilayhi turja’oon.” (Surah Yaseen)

“Therefore Glory be to Him in Whose hand is the [heavenly] dominion/ kingdom of all things, and to Him you will be returned..” (Holy Quran, 36:83)

Prophet Muhammad (saws) will Purify you

Allah ‘Azza wa Jal is then describing, ‘zaki,  that that light, when it comes to be present with you, no doubt that the truth, it destroys falsehood.

17:81“Wa qul jaa alHaqqu wa zahaqal baatil, innal batila kana zahooqa.” (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)

Means when the light of the heavens come, like we said if we are false and we are in darkness, one candle, one salawat,

عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ، قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ – صلى الله عليه وسلم -: ” مَنْ صَلَّى عَلَيَّ صَلَاةً وَاحِدَةً، صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ عَشْرَ صَلَوَاتٍ، وَحُطَّتْ عَنْهُ عَشْرُ خَطِيئَاتٍ، وَرُفِعَتْ لَهُ عَشْرُ دَرَجَاتٍ “
Qala Rasulullah (saws): “Man Salla `alaiya Salatan wahidatan, Sallallahu `alayhi `ashra Salawatin, wa Huttat `anhu `ashru khaTeatin, wa ruf`at lahu `ashru  darajatin.”

Prophet Muhammad (saws) said: “Whoever sends Madina, La ilaha IlAllah - Sunblessings [Praises] upon me, God will shower His blessings upon him ten times, and will erase ten of his sins, and elevate [raise] his [spiritual] station ten times.” [Hadith, recorded by Nasa’i]

Because we can’t understand how great that is; but just for an example you go home and darken your room and turn one candle on and that immediately pushes away darkness. And Allah ‘Azza wa Jal describing, ‘That is zaki (Purification).’ The light of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it eats and devours every type of badness.

Zahuqa’, Allah (aj) describes, ‘he obliterates’; because what’s the haqq (truth)? How you’re going to bring the haqq of Allah ‘Azza wa Jal? Do you think Allah ‘Azza wa Jal is coming directly to you? This is not Azimat Allah, this is not the Greatness of Allah. Allah ‘Azza wa Jal created for us khalifa (representative), Allah (aj) said, ‘he is carrying all My Realities.’ As soon as you make Durood-e-Shareef, the light of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam comes and begin to purify and cleanse you.

3. ‘Alimukum (Teaches) – Prophet (saws) will teach you the Book and its Wisdom

Then awliyaullah come and describe the next line: Allah ‘Azza wa Jal says, “wa ‘Aleemukum ul-kitab wal hikmah,” 

 وَيُعَلِّمُكُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَيُعَلِّمُكُم مَّا لَمْ تَكُونُوا تَعْلَمُونَ ﴿١٥١…”

2:151 – “‘…wa yu’Allimukumul kitaba wal hikmata, wa yu’Allimukum ma lam takono ta’Alamon.” (Surat al Baqarah) 

“… and teaching you the Scripture/Book and Wisdom and teaching you New Knowledge, that which you did not know.” (Holy Quran,  2:151)

That now that light, it comes into your life and teaches you the kitab. Allah ‘Azza wa Jal describes ‘feekum’ in Surat al Baqarah 2:151, and Allah ‘Azza wa Jal describes: ‘He is going to teach you the book and its wisdom.’ 

Awliya (Saints) Put the Realities together like a Tasbih (Prayer Beads)

And they [saints] come and begin to teach us that for tariqas (Islamic spiritual paths) and ahl ul haqqayiq (people of realities), the gift that Allah ‘Azza wa Jal gives to them is they take the individual beads of realities and knowledges, and with the barakah of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they sew it together.

And what shaitan (satan) does to normal people is that he cuts that string and all they have are individual beads; means these are all the same ayahs of Qur’an, these are all the same hadith– why aren’t they putting it altogether? Because shaitan wants to break their string and just keep them to be independent beads. 

The turoqs, because they hold tight to the rope of Allah ‘Azza wa Jal, which is the love of Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they put these beads all together for us.

3:103 “Wa’tasimo bihab lillahi jamee’an wa la tafarraqo.”(Surat Al ‘Imran)

“And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not separate.” (Holy Quran)

Prophet (saws) was the Walking Qur’an

There was No Kitab (Book) at the time of Sayyidina Muhammad (saws)

Awliya (saints) come and teach us: if you have a little bit of understanding, there was no kitab (book) in the time of Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. O’ Ajeeb (odd), When wahi (revelation) was coming, the kitab did not exist. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn’t bring a book. He was not Nabi Musa alayhis salaam that brought stone, on tablet, with writings. Means what was coming to Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was coming to the heart of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam; and Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was reciting the kitab.

And the scribes, they were writing on parchment and they had no permission to put them together. So the ayah (verse) would come and be put aside; the ayah would come and be put aside. As Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reciting his hifz, he is the walking Holy Qur’an; he IS the walking Holy Qur’an. He is the kitab!

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) ” (Quran, The Star 53:1-5)

When Allah ‘Azza wa Jal says that, ‘The kitab, he is going to come and teach you the kitab and every hikmah (wisdom),’ so are you imagining that Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is actually bringing a book for you and says, come ‘Come sit down here,yeah, come sit here; this is alif, ba, ta’? 

Today’s technology shows that Knowledge is Conveyed through Light

Only now we are understanding: when light comes to you, light comes with all of its knowledges. The highest form of encryption and conveyance now of knowledge is through light- you have a phone, you have a smartphone. As soon as you have your smartphone, you want an app, you say, ‘Oh I want to have this version of the Holy Qur’an’. You click the app and it downloads everything onto your phone. You say, ‘I want all the hadith books available’; you click the app and immediately downloads onto your phone. Through these technologies, Allah ‘Azza wa Jal is showing us Divine Realities. 

When Allah ‘Azza wa Jal saying that when the Nur ul-Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam comes, means Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was “Rahmat al lil-‘Aalameen” (Holy Quran 21:107); he was saying, ‘Just make one salawat on me, I’m going to bring back ten salawats upon you’.  

عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ، قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ – صلى الله عليه وسلم -: ” مَنْ صَلَّى عَلَيَّ صَلَاةً وَاحِدَةً، صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ عَشْرَ صَلَوَاتٍ، وَحُطَّتْ عَنْهُ عَشْرُ خَطِيئَاتٍ، وَرُفِعَتْ لَهُ عَشْرُ دَرَجَاتٍ

 “Qala Rasulullah (saws): “Man Salla `alaiya Salatan wahidatan, Sallallahu `alayhi `ashra Salawatin, wa Huttat `anhu `ashru khaTeatin, wa ruf`at lahu `ashru  darajatin.”

Prophet Muhammad (saws) said: “Whoever sends blessings [Praises] upon me, God will shower His blessings upon him ten times, and will erase ten of his sins, and elevate [raise] his [spiritual] station ten times.” [Hadith, recorded by Nasa’i]

Prophet Muhammad (saws) was literally the Walking Quran

Then awliyaullah come and begin to teach us that when Allah ‘Azza wa Jal talking about kitab, there was no kitab. The kitab is Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He was walking Qur’an. They asked ‘How was the character of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam?’ They said, ‘Have you read Qur’an?’ Means at that time they were hafiz, they had written the different ayahs (verses) of Qur’an and they were memorizing. They said, ‘Yes, Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was walking Qur’an. His character, his khulooq, was entirely walking Qur’an’. 

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.” (Holy Quran, The Pen 68:4)

Hadith:
It was narrated that a man from Banu Suwaah said: I said to Aishah: Tell me about the character of the Messenger of Allah (saw).’ She said: ‘Have you not read the quran: “And verily, you (O Mohammed [SAW]) are on an exalted (standard of) character [‘Khuluqul Azeem’] 68:4?”  [Sunan Ibn Majah Chapter No: 15,]

But awliyaullah come and teach: no, he was literally a walking Qur’an, because where was the Holy Qur’an coming from? It was coming from the heart of Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

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) ” (Quran, The Star 53:1-5)

That is the reality of Surat al-YaSeen. Allah ‘Azza wa Jal is testifying by that reality: “YaSeen, wal Quran al Hakim. [YaSeen. By the wise Quran.”](holy Quran 36:1-2)

That, “by this reality of Sayyiduna YaSeen sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he is the Qur’an; he is all the hikmah and wisdom.” beause Allah ‘Azza wa Jal said, ‘He is going to teach you ‘Aleemukum ul kitab wal hikmah’ (holy Quran 2:151)- what kitab, wal hikmah? “YaSeen, wal Quranul hakim”. 

 وَيُعَلِّمُكُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَيُعَلِّمُكُم مَّا لَمْ تَكُونُوا تَعْلَمُونَ ﴿١٥١…”

2:151 – “‘…wa yu’Allimukumul kitaba wal hikmata, wa yu’Allimukum ma lam takono ta’Alamon.” (Surat al Baqarah) 

“… and teaching you the Book and Wisdom and teaching you New Knowledge, that which you did not know.” (Holy Quran,  2:151)

36:1-2 – “YaSeen. (1) wal Quranil Hakeem.” (Surah Yaseen)

“YaSeen. By the wise Qur’an.” (Holy Quran, 36:1-2)

Allah ‘Azza wa Jal testifies by the reality of Surat al-YaSeen, Sayyiduna YaSeen, because YaSeen is the name of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that he is the walking kitab. He is the walking kitab of Allah ‘Azza wa Jal, that Allah ‘Azza wa Jal described upon Holy Qur’an because we became jahal (ignorant).

In the time of companions, there was no permission for Qur’an to be manifested – you know that in the history? In the time of Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what the Arabs call [the book of holy Quran] is ‘mushaf’, there was no book. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is walking Qur’an.  

How can you compile something in the presence of Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? It’s against adab (manners), he’s the walking Qur’an. You want to know Qur’an? You take it from Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is ‘wal hamd’, the Flag of Praise.

The Power of holy Quran would turn Mountain to Dust

That Allah ‘Azza wa Jal describes that, ‘My Qur’an, if I put it on a jabl; tanzeel al-jabl, if it comes onto the mountain, it will be dust, it will be dust!’

لَوْ أَنزَلْنَا هَٰذَا الْقُرْآنَ عَلَىٰ جَبَلٍ لَّرَأَيْتَهُ خَاشِعًا مُّتَصَدِّعًا مِّنْ خَشْيَةِ اللَّهِ وَتِلْكَ الْأَمْثَالُ نَضْرِبُهَا لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ

59:21 – “Law anzalna hadha alQurana ‘ala jabalin laraaytahu, khashi’an mutasaddi’an min khashyatillahi….” (Surat Al Hashr)

“Had We sent down this Qur’an on a mountain, verily, you would have seen it obliterated to dust (from its power) And these examples We present to the people that perhaps they will Contemplate… ” (Quran, The Exile 59:21)

So are you thinking with your mind that Holy Qur’an can be held in your hand? That you are able to put it (holy quran) on a paper? Where Allah ‘Azza wa Jal is saying that the Holy Qur’an, if it comes onto a mountain- think of Mount Everest- it would be dust.

Holy Quran was Revealed to the Heart of Sayyidina Muhammad (s) and He stayed firm

Allah ‘Azza wa jal says,‘If I reveal My Qur’an onto the mountain it would be dust, but if revealed to Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he is firm’. What kind of azimat (greatness) is [Sayyidina Muhammad (saws) has]? Because we don’t understand that Allah ‘Azza wa Jal’s Qur’an is not created. Allah’s word is not from created, Allah ‘Azza wa Jal is beyond creation. The non-created word of Allah ‘Azza wa Jal is manifesting through His Creation, Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.  

Prophet (saws) was taught by Immense Power

Where did we see that before: ‘qaba qawsayni wa adna’, how the reality of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was able to approach with all his physicality, Allah lifted and brought to His Divinely Presence. 

53:5-9 “‘Allamahu shadeedul quwa. (5) Dho mirratin fastawa. (6) Wa huwa bil Ufuqil a’la. (7)  Thumma dana fatadalla. (8) Fakana qaba qawsayni aw adna. (9) ” (Surat an Najm)                              

“He was taught by one Mighty in Power. (5)  One of soundness. And he rose to [his] true form. (6) While he was in the higher [part of the] horizon. (7) Then he approached and descended. (8) And was at a distance of two bow lengths or nearer. (9) (Quran, The Star 53:6-9)

That immense shadeed al-quwa, if you want to know about Nur ul-Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you read Surat al-Najm [53rd chapter of holy quran]. Najm (star) is the reality of Sayyiduna Ahmad alayhis salaatus salaam, where Allah ‘Azza wa Jal says, “Allamahu shadeedul quwa.” ‘He has been taught by One in shadeed al-quwa; he’s been taught by One who is extremely powerful.’ Throughout Qur’an Allah ‘Azza wa Jal describing, ‘I’m The Power and I taught, ‘alam al-Quran. I taught that reality; I bestowed all that reality upon the soul.’

الرَّ‌حْمَـٰنُ ﴿١﴾ عَلَّمَ الْقُرْ‌آنَ ﴿٢﴾ خَلَقَ الْإِنسَانَ ﴿٣
55:1-3 – “Ar Rahmaan. ‘Allamal Qur’an. Khalaqal Insaan.” (Surat Ar Rahman)

“The Most Merciful. (1) It is He Who has taught the Qur’an. (2) He has created Human. (3)” (Holy Quran, The Beneficent 55: 1-3)

Before, the soul is like a CD, even the technology is gone, now we don’t even have CDs anymore, it is a zipdrive, but before the soul is like a CD. Every knowledge is put onto that CD, means Allah ‘Azza wa Jal describing for us, ‘I have put every knowledge upon the soul of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. ‘Alam al-Qur’an (Taught quran), before khalaq al-insaan (created human) (holy Quran 55:1-3 ),’

The First thing Allah (aj) Created was the Light of Prophet Muhammad (saws)

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came and said the hadith, “I was the first of creation.

قَالَ : يَا جَابِرُ ، إِنَّ اللَّهَ خَلَقَ قَبْلَ الأَشْيَاءِ نُورُ نَبِيِّكَ مِنْ نُورِهِ ، فَجَعَلَ ذَلِكَ النُّورِ يَدُورُ بِالْقُدْرَةِ حَيْثُ شَاءَ اللهُ ، وَلَمْ يَكُنْ فِي ذَلِكَ الْوَقْتِ لَوْحٌ وَلا قَلَمٌ ، وَلا جَنَّةٌ وَلا نَارٌ ، وَلا مُلْكٌ ، وِلا سَمَاءٌ وَلا أَرْضٌ ، وَلا شَمْسٌ وَلا قَمَرٌ، وَلا إِنْسٌ  وَلا جِنٌّ

Ya Jabir, in Allah khalaqa qablal Ashiya e Nooro Nabiyika min Noorehi. Faj’ala dhalikan Noore yadoro bil Qudrati haithu sha Allahlu, wa lam yakun fi dhalikal waqti lawhun wa la qalamun, wa la jannatun wa la Narun,  wa la Mulkun, wa la samaun wa la ardun, wa la shamsun wa la qamarun, wa la insun wa la jinnun.]

Prophet Muhammad (saws) said: “O Jabir, the first thing Allah created was the light of your Prophet from His (Allah’s) light, and that light remained (lit. “turned”) in the midst of His Power for as long as He wished, and at that time, there was no Tablet and no Pen, and no  Paradise and no Fire, and no angel, and no heaven or an earth, and no Sun and no Moon, and No Human being and no jinn.”

[He said:] My light was created before there was a Kabah, before there was Bayt ul-Mahmur, before there were malayika (angels). Before all of that, I was a Rasol. My light was the first thing that Allah ‘Azza wa Jal created and the eternal position of RasolAllah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

It means he (saws) speaks for Allah ‘Azza wa Jal eternally. Nobody transverses or goes beyond that state, goes beyond that maqam (station). That maqam for Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is directly in the presence of Allah ‘Azza wa Jal: qaba qawsayni wa adna (at a distance of two bow lengths or nearer.) (Holy Quran 53:9)
So means that reality is not something that can be imagined.

Reality of Quran doesn’t open without Love of Sayyidina Muhammad (s)

What Allah ‘Azza wa Jal wants for us and a reminder for us is that: we left the Qur’an, we left the Qur’an. This become furqaan. This becomes the furqaan, the book of right and wrong. Its reality doesn’t open without the light of Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be present with you. You have a book of right and wrong.

If you read Quran without the love of Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it becomes something very dangerous, because they don’t have a mercy and they don’t have a love, so what they read? They read all sorts of verses that we don’t understand where they are coming up with their understanding. Why are they harsh, why are they filled with hatred, why are all these things that are coming? Because they are reading furqaan and these are the people who have no muhabbat of Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

At every chance, they are trying to take down and bring down the greatness of Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam; for what? Hizbul shaytaan (group of Satan), because shaytaan doesn’t like Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He thought he was the khalifa and he was greatly disappointed. 

Sayyidina Muhammad (s) Is the Zirk and the Quran Mubeen (YaSeen 36:69)

So what they want for us to understand is that Allah ‘Azza wa Jal describing Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the kitab and he is going to teach you every wisdom. He is walking Qur’an.  And what’s Surat al-YaSeen, verse 69:

36:69Wa ma allamnahu shira wa ma yanbaghee lahu inna hu illah dhikrun wa Quranun mubeen.” (Surah YaSeen)

Correct Translation: “We have not taught him (Prophet Muhammad) poetry, nor it is befitting for him. He (Prophet Muhammad) is not but Zikr (Remembrance/Praise) and the Clear Quran.” (Holy Quran, YaSin 36:69)

Common Translation:”And We did not give Prophet Muhammad, knowledge of poetry, nor is it befitting for him. It is not but a message and a clear Qur’an

This is in reference to who? Allah ‘Azza wa Jal is describing: “We didn’t teach him, Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, poetry.” It’s not befitting His Azimat, His Greatness. Then Allah ‘Azza wa Jal says, “inna huwa”, he is, “dhikrun wa Quranun mubeen.” 

They take out in the translation to manipulate the Qur’an: the first ‘hu’ [‘AllamnaHu], is in reference to Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that he is not taught poetry; the second ‘hu’ they don’t want to say that it is Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so they say ‘it’ but this is clearly a description of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah ‘Azza wa Jal describing: “innahu dhikrun wa Quranun mubeen,” that Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the dhikrun and he is the Quranun mubeen

We have Raised Hight your Zikr, O’ Muhammad (saws)

Wa rafana laka dhikrak, wa rafana laka dhikrak,” where Allah ‘Azza wa Jal describes in Surat al-Inshirah,

أَلَمْ نَشْرَ‌حْ لَكَ صَدْرَ‌كَ ﴿١﴾ … وَرَ‌فَعْنَا لَكَ ذِكْرَ‌كَ ﴿٤

94:4 – “Alam nashrah laka sadrak. (1) …Wa rafa’na laka dhikrak.(4)” (Surat ash Sharh)

“Did We not expand for you, [O Muhammad], your Chest? (1)….
And raised high your station and your praise.” (4) (The Relief 94:4)

That, “We have raised the dhikrak,” means, ‘Your name is supreme throughout the heavens’. Allah (aj) doesn’t care for the dirty dunya (material world). He Says, ‘Your name throughout the heavens is known but these jahal (ignorants) on earth, they don’t know your reality ‘cause they’re behind the donkey of their physicalities.’ But malaaika (angels) are not veiled; they see completely everything and they understood, “wa rafana laka dhikrak,” that ‘your name is supreme throughout the heavens, ya Sayyidi, ya RasoolAllah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.’ 

In Surat al-YaSeen, Allah ‘Azza wa Jal then is describing, “Inna hu dhirkun wa Quranul mubeen.” So means if they want, awliyaullah want now for us to unlock the power of Holy Qur’an. That this Qur’an, its power doesn’t open without the light of Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in your life.

Means that maqam al-iman (station of faith), what Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked, “Love me more than you love yourself.” If you love Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam more than you love yourself, means that Nur ul Muhammad is all around you, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. You are constantly making durood, you are constantly in praising, in tafakkur (contemplation), so that the light of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is around.  

Then Allah ‘Azza wa Jal says, ‘Now you are dressed with the dhikr and the Qur’an al-Majeed,’ that this Qur’an is going to dress you and bless you, and every power, every letter is going to be coming into your heart, from who?- the one who has the kitab and the hikmah. He is the teacher for Allah ‘Azza wa Jal.  

We put more importance on Paper than Prophet (s) who brought the Quran

So when they read Qur’an, they are reading furqaan; they left out the nur of Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in their lives. Without the love of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah ‘Azza wa Jal made it very easy; this has to be encoded, otherwise anybody could pick it up and take the secrets of the heavens. And at that time of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it wasn’t around.

So means that our faith became so weak that we place so much importance on the paper but not on the one who brought the Holy Qur’an. They think they’re following Allah ‘Azza wa Jal, saying, ‘We love the paper and we insult the one who brought the Holy Qur’an.’

And he brought through his heart and brought through his light, and that light is eternal, that that light is alive.  That light is continuously flowing the realities of Holy Qur’an. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, “I’m a RasolAllah eternally,” means that, “that Qur’an is continuously flowing through my heart.” Don’t come to only a part of it and leave out the other part. 

Power of Holy Quran is with the Love of Sayyidina Muhammad (s)

So it means then for awliyaullah and for those who follow the love of Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they’re reminding for us that: to bring back that power, that the power of Holy Qur’an is with the love of Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

If that Nur ul-Muhammadi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is with you, is continuously conveying to your heart. That is what all these devices are teaching us. Every device now is conveying: you want something, I can immediately send it to you. There on Apple [devices], I can drop, airdrop to you; you want a file, I can just drop it to you, it goes straight to your phone. These are all toys. What about the greatness of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam?

What is the 10 Salawat Prophet (saws) is making on you?

You make Durood-e-Shareef, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, “I’m going to come and make ten salawats.”What salawats he is going to be making? The Kitab al-Hikmah. With the salawat from the greatest of salawats is that Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, ‘I begin to dress you from Allah’s kitab, and dress you, bless you until you be dressed with hikmah and wisdom, ‘ilm laduni wa hikmata bis Saliheen.’ (Divinely/hidden Knowledge and wisdom of the Pious servants (saints)

Allah ‘Azza wa Jal says, ‘This is the greatest gift that can be given because those light and those knowledges you take towards aakhirah for your eternal journey towards the heavens.’ 

We pray that Allah ‘Azza wa Jal open for us on these nights of Mawlid an-Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam; means if we understand that Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the KitabAllah, there was no Qur’an manifested, he was walking Holy Qur’an.

Celebrate Mawlid –

Without the existance of Sayyidina Muhammad, there would be No Quran

If you are thinking that you love Allah ‘Azza wa Jal, you love Allah ‘Azza wa Jal’s kitab, you don’t think you should come to celebrate Milad an-Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam (prophet Muhammad (saws)’s birth), that you should be praising Allah ‘Azza wa Jal, ‘Ya Rabbi, you sent Rahmat al-lil ‘Aalameen (Mercy to Creation); and the rahmah that You sent is the KitabAllah that came through the heart and the soul of Your Most Beloved.’ If not for the existence of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, no KitabAllah for us, no Holy Qur’an came onto this earth.

In this Mawlid an-Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam come and thank Allah ‘Azza wa Jal for the Holy Qur’an. And then we begin to understand that greatness, towards the understanding of the greatness of Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, InshaAllah

Subhana rabbika rabbalizzatiamma yasifoon, wa salaamunalal mursaleen, walhamdulillahi rabbilaalameen. Bi hurmati Muhammad al-Mustafa wa bi sirri surat al-Fatiha.
