Peace and Heavenly Power

flow through Fajr (Morning Prayer)

‘Salamun Hiya’ (97:5)

 

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

سَلَامٌ هِيَ حَتَّىٰ مَطْلَعِ الْفَجْرِ ﴿٥

97:5 –  “Salaamun hiya hattaa mat la’il fajr (5)(Surat al Qadr)

“Peace it is until the emergence of dawn.(5) (Holy Quran, The Power)

Alhamdulillah always a reminder that by the Grace of Allah (AJ) we are in existence. And a reminder to take a path of nothingness in a dunya that is constantly making something.

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem. Atiullaha wa atiur Rasola wa Ulil amre minkum…Alhamdulillah from their knowledges and from their hearts; that Allah (AJ) send to the reality of Prophet (ﷺ) and Prophet (ﷺ) sends to the ulul amr. The ulul amr whom are real and sincere, whom Allah (AJ) has granted what Allah (AJ) wants to grant. Their authority is from Heavens.

…ياأَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَطِيعُواللَّه وَأَطِيعُوٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ

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)

There are ulul amr of dunya who are authorized by dunya people and they authorize each other, and there are those who are authorized by the Heavens. Alhamdulillah that Allah (AJ) granted us a tremendous ni’mat (blessing) to be from them, to be following them, Sultan al-Awliya Mwlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani and the sultan of our hearts, Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani (Q). Allah sanctify their secret and raise their darajats (station) infinitely higher. May Allah grant Mawlana Shaykh Hisham good health, long life, take away difficulties and hardships. And make that path to be soft and smooth and fragrant and beautific oceans for Mawlana Shaykh Hisham inshallah, always, always, always.

Different Levels of Knowledge

1.Shari’ah, 2. Tariqa, 3. Ma’rifah, 4. Haqiqa, 5.’Azema

1.Jurisprudence 2.Spiritual Path, 3. Gnosticism 4.Truth, 5.Steadfastness

In in these days of difficulty and hardship, we ask that Allah (AJ) dress us. A reminder for us is from Surat al-Qadr (chapter 97 of Holy Quran), where Allah (AJ) is granting from the oceans of Divinely Power. In everything there are levels of knowledge.  Shari’ah – They have the level of Shari’ah (Islamic Jurisprudence), which is the cause and effect, that governs the physical world, the world of form.

Ilm at-Tariqah that Allah (AJ) grant to those who are taking a path. They are on “ta wasaw bil haqqi wa ta wasaw bi sabr.

وَالْعَصْرِ‌ ﴿١﴾ إِنَّ الْإِنسَانَ لَفِي خُسْرٍ‌ ﴿٢﴾ إِلَّا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالْحَقِّ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالصَّبْرِ‌ ٣

103
“Wal ’Asr.(1) Innal insaana lafee khusr.(2) Illal ladheena aamano wa ‘amilos saalihaati, wa tawasaw bil haqqi wa tawasaw bis Sabr.(3) ” (Surat al ‘Asr)

“By al ‘Asr (the time)! Verily, Mankind is in loss. Except for those who have believed and done righteous deeds and advised each other to truth and advised each other to patience. ” (The Declining Day, 103:1-3)

They are on a path of haqq (truth) to reach towards realities, they are making an ascension. When Allah (AJ) is saying “‘Mutafakkiron’the people of tafakkur know”, “‘Ulul albaab‘ – the people of the door know”, “the people of understanding know”. That have you made your ascension? Means those who struggle and strive against themselves and against their bad character, Allah (AJ) grants them a level deeper than the Shari’ah, which is based off the Shari’ah. Then higher level is the knowledge of Tariqah.

وَسَخَّرَ لَكُم مَّا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ جَمِيعاً مِّنْهُ إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لَّقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ

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 (saws)], as from Him, all that is in the heavens and on earth: Behold, in that are Signs indeed for those who reflect/Contemplate [Meditate].” ( Holy Quran, The Crouching, 45:13)

&

هَـٰذَا بَيَانٌ لِّلنَّاسِ وَهُدًى وَمَوْعِظَةٌ لِّلْمُتَّقِينَ ﴿١٣٨

3:138 – “Haaza bayaanul linnaasi wa hudan wa maw’izatul lilMuttaqeen.” (Surat Al ‘Imran)

“This [Qur’an] is a clear statement to [all] the people, and a guidance and instruction for those who are ‘Mutaqeen’ /conscious of (divine presence).” (Family of ‘Imran, 3:138)

&

يُؤْتِي الْحِكْمَةَ مَن يَشَاءُ ۚ وَمَن يُؤْتَ الْحِكْمَةَ فَقَدْ أُوتِيَ خَيْرًا كَثِيرًا ۗ وَمَا يَذَّكَّرُ إِلَّا أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ ﴿٢٦٩

2:269 – “Yu’til Hikmata mai yasha o; wa mai yutal Hikmata faqad otiya khairan kaseeraa; wa maa yazzakkaru illaa ulul albaab.” (Surat al Baqarah)

“He gives wisdom to whom He wills, and whoever has been given wisdom has certainly been given much good. And none will remember except People of the Door/People of understanding.” (The Cow, 2:269)

Levels of Knowledge in Reality of the Circle

1. Shari’ah is the Circle – governing everything

From the knowledge of the tareeq and the way towards the ma’rifah of Allah (AJ), it becomes like the circle, which is Shari’ah that governs everything.

2. Tariqah (Path) is the Radius/Path towards the Center

There is the radius [Tareeq] from every point of the circumference to the center, which is the center of power. The nucleus is the center of power that emanates through all the circumference. Once we understand just one circle, then every ‘izzah, every reality will begin to unfold. That the knowledge of Shari’ah, Tariqah, ma’rifah…

3. Ma’rifa (Gnostism) is going deeper into ocean of Divinely Knowledge

Those who are taking a path on each step of that tareeq can go deeper into the oceans of ma’rifah. Those who are Gnostics in the way of Allah (AJ), means they have been dressed by Shari’ah. Then Allah (AJ) grants them the knowledge of Tariqah. Then from the knowledge of Tariqah grants them the knowledge of ma’rifah.

4. Haqiqah (Reality) – Getting closer to the Center – knowing the Truth of the Reality

From the knowledges of ma’rifah as they are drawing closer to the reality, they are now granting them haqeeqah; the haqaiq, the truth of that reality, like the essence of that reality.

5. ‘Azemah (Greatness) – Closest to the Center – Magnificent Knowledge

Then the knowledge of Azemah, that they are so close to the center of the Divinely Presence, the Divinely Kingdom, that Allah (AJ) is granting them the knowledge of ‘Azemah and its magnificence and its munificence.

Lailatul Qadr (Night of Power) and Power of the Sun

From the understanding of the difficulty that is coming onto dunya, that is a tremendous power in Surat al-Qadr.

إِنَّا أَنزَلْنَاهُ فِي لَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ ﴿١﴾ وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ ﴿٢﴾ لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ خَيْرٌ مِّنْ أَلْفِ شَهْرٍ ﴿٣﴾ تَنَزَّلُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ وَالرُّوحُ فِيهَا بِإِذْنِ رَبِّهِم مِّن كُلِّ أَمْرٍ ﴿٤﴾ سَلَامٌ هِيَ حَتَّىٰ مَطْلَعِ الْفَجْرِ ﴿٥

97 – “Innaa anzalnaahu fee lailatil qadr (1) Wa maa adraaka ma lailatul qadr (2) Lailatul qadri khairum min alfee shahr (3)Tanaz zalul malaa-ikatu war roohu feeha bi izni-rab bihim min kulli amr. (4) Salaamun hiya hattaa mat la’il fajr (5)(Surat al Qadr)

“We have brought it down on the night of power. (1) “And what will explain to you what the night of power is?”(2) “The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months. (3) The angels and the Spirit descend therein by permission of their Lord for every Command/affair.(4) “Peace it is until the emergence of dawn.(5) (Holy Quran, The Power)

Allah (AJ) is describing that the laylatul Qadr, “We indeed revealed this Message on a Night of Power. What will explain to thee what is the night of Power? The night of Power is better than a thousand months, therein come down the angels and the Spirit by Allah’s permission on every order coming by that authority and reality and there is peace until the rising of the morning. ‘Salaamun hiya hatta matla il-Fajr’ – “Peace it is until the emergence of dawn).”

This surat  gives us an understanding of the shams and the power Allah (AJ) is granting to a sun. So you look at the sun, for us just to understand because realities are difficult to convey without some sort of visual that they want us to perceive. [In the diagram, Shaykh shows the sun and its rays – On the Sun written Kulli Amr كُلِّ أَمْرٍ (all commands), the Rays has Salam سَلَامٌ (Peace), at the end of the Ray is Hiya هِيَ (Guidance and knowledge)]

To be dressed by a qadr (power), to be dressed by Allah (AJ)’s rida (satisfaction), to be dressed by protection in days of difficulty, more protection is needed, more understanding is needed.

The Sun and ‘Kulli Amr‘ (All Divinely Commands)

We start that ‘kulli amr’, that every ‘malaikati war ruh bi idhni rabbihim.’ ‘The angels and the Spirit descend therein by permission of their Lord.” (Quran 97:4)

تَنَزَّلُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ وَالرُّ‌وحُ فِيهَا بِإِذْنِ رَ‌بِّهِم مِّن كُلِّ أَمْرٍ‌ ٤
97:4 –“Tanazzalul malaikatu war Roh, fiha bidhne Rabbihim min kulle amr.” (Surat al Qadr)

“The angels and the Spirit descend therein by permission of their Lord for every Command/affair.“( Holy Quran, The Power 97:4

If you make the circle of the sun as an example, because the sun is a reality for us of eternity. The sun for our understanding, because Allah (AJ) teaches: I will show you upon the horizon and then upon yourself.

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 Isra)

“We will show them Our signs in the horizons and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth…” (The Night Journey 41:53)

The signs upon yourself is going to be much more complicated. To understand the horizon, that which is eternal around us is the sun. It has been there from the time of Sayyidina Adam (as), every prophet has seen that sun. So for us to understand eternity, it is the shams. That is why we say, “Shams al-Arifeen (the Sun of all Knowers), Shams an-Nabiyin, means the sun of all the prophets, the sun not son. It means the eternal authority, power and qudrah of that reality.

Then Allah (AJ) is describing: every angel and the Ruh, with the permission of Allah (AJ) is descending upon you with every amr (command). Every amr has to do with every order, every command. For us to understand now just the Shari’ah level of the sun.

Importance of the Sun in Our Existence

The power that Allah (AJ) is dressing is a symbol of Allah’s Qadr. So He says, in My Qadr (power), in that sun every order is moving through that sun because you still probably do not know the importance of the sun in your existence. But once we study just a little bit about the sun, you breathe from the sun, you can see from the sun. You have warmth and life on this planet because of our proximity to the sun. If Allah put you on the moon you would be frozen or you would have been cooked at 250 °C. So the Earth is precisely positioned for a life and an existence on this Earth and it is nourished by the power of that sun.

What they found that you put in that Sun ‘kullu amr’ is that every amr, every order of Allah (AJ) is emanating through that sun [Shaykh is pointing at the Sun in the diagram]. That order and the Ruh has to do with the secret of Sayyidina Muhammad (ﷺ)’s light. Everything is from Prophet (ﷺ)’s light, the malaikah (angels) carry the orders from the Divinely Presence as the purified lights, the purified souls, they don’t make up, they don’t deviate, they don’t go left, they don’t go right.

So Allah’s izza, Allah’s Command, atiullah, comes to Prophet (ﷺ) the ati ar-rasul, from Prophet (ﷺ) to ulul amr,

ياأَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَطِيعُواللَّه وَأَطِيعُوٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ
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… ” (Holy Quran, The Women, 4:59)

They are amongst the ulul amr, the people of the amr, of the conveyance, of the orders. Every order of Allah (AJ) moving through that sun.

The Photon of the Sun Penetrates everything in the Galaxy

It means then on the Shari’ah level they begin to teach us that everything that is coming from that sun are malaikah (angels) with authorities from Allah (AJ). So when they began to study the sun they saw there was a photon inside the sun. There is a light inside the sun that penetrates everything. They went deep into the Earth, fifty miles underground and they said there was a photon there. They went out to the outer planets with satellites, and they said the photons of our sun for this galaxy reaches the farthest levels of the planets. Kulli amr (all commands), Allah (AJ) says: that My Power, My Izza with malaikah and the authority of the ruh; means there is a reality from Prophet (ﷺ) giving command to those malaikah that deliver Allah (AJ)’s order.

تَنَزَّلُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ وَالرُّ‌وحُ فِيهَا بِإِذْنِ رَ‌بِّهِم مِّن كُلِّ أَمْرٍ‌ ٤
97:4 –“Tanazzalul malaikatu war Roh, fiha bidhne Rabbihim min kulle amr.” (Surat al Qadr)

“The angels and the Spirit descend therein by permission of their Lord for every Command/affair.“( Holy Quran, The Power 97:4)

All Our Nourishments are in Need of Malayikah (Angels)

They found that all your nourishment, whatever is coming to you, your breath, your sight, the plants, everything is in need of the photon. It means they are in need of Allah’s malaikah. These angels are carrying every command all the way to the farthest nd it is nourishing the galaxy that Allah (AJ) has put under its command. Means that planet of that galaxy. Each sun is filled with its angels, with an authority from the ruh, aevery angel is being dispersed, that the flower on this Earth it requires your ray, and the angel will reach to that flower exactly the way Allah (AJ) wants it.[N]

Everything is nourished and everything is in the best of hisaab (account), it can’t be random. There is no randomness, that Allah (AJ) gives a command and that angels ray is responsible to hit that flower, to hit that human, to hit that mountain, wherever it is supposed to go and to nourish what Allah (AJ) wants it to nourish, it moves precisely.

لِّيَعْلَمَ أَن قَدْ أَبْلَغُوا رِ‌سَالَاتِ رَ‌بِّهِمْ وَأَحَاطَ بِمَا لَدَيْهِمْ وَأَحْصَىٰ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ عَدَدًا ٢٨

72:28 – Liya’lama an qad ablaghoo risalati rabbihim wa ahata bima ladayhim wa ahsa kulla shay in ‘adada. ” (Surat al Jinn)

“That He may know that they have conveyed the messages of their Lord; and He has encompassed whatever is with them and has enumerated all things in number. ” (The Jinn 72:28)

Angels bring Salaam (peace) and Mercy to Creation

سَلَامٌ هِيَ حَتَّىٰ مَطْلَعِ الْفَجْرِ ﴿٥

97:5 –  “Salaamun hiya hattaa mat la’il fajr (5)(Surat al Qadr)

Peace it is until the emergence of dawn.(5) (Holy Quran, The Power)

It brings salaamun (peace). At Shari’ah level of salaamun, it brings salaamun, brings peace to everything. This is Allah (AJ)’s ni’mat (blessing). It brings peace, it brings reality and tranquility, it brings the secret of hayat and eternity, life. Ocean of ever-living and every existing is coming from these rays, with the salaamun. [I]

That salaamun dresses everything, so then so many poetry and nasheeds about the morning dew. How Allah (AJ) feeds everything in that morning. At night it looks like it is dying, everything is frightened. As soon as the Fajr is rising, there is water, there are drops on flowers, there is a condensation taking place as Allah (AJ) is sending salaams. Allah (aj) is Sending a rahma (mercy) upon this Creation, that it has and produces a dew, a water, a life-force that nourishes it, until the rays begin to come and dress it and bless it. Even if you don’t see the sun, its rays are penetrating everything.[I]

Shari’ah Level is that World of Form is governed by Allah’s Command

Then that salaam is coming, the ‘hiya’ is in reference to the power that Allah (AJ) is bringing upon the Earth. So the Shari’ah level is for us to understand, that Yaa Rabbi this power this izza that You have dressed everywhere in the world of form is under Your Shari’ah. Shari’ah is what governs in the world of form. That sun can’t go anywhere, it is directly and precisely where Allah (AJ) wants it. It’s governed by Allah (AJ)’s izza.

So the world of form is showing and Allah (AJ) is showing that from this world of form, I have given this power and this authority to what it represents. Within the rays of that sun, why it nourishes and why it penetrates everything is because I am telling you that the angels and the ruh are coming with all My Amr. So it is a station of Allah (AJ)’s Amr (command). For us to understand, they are coming with every command upon that Creation and nourishing and performing everything that I am asking of it precise.

People of Tariqah and Ma’rifah Seek Divinely Power and realities

Then the knowledges of Tariqah, the knowledges of ma’rifah and the knowledges of haqiqa begin to come and say ‘wa laqad karamna bani adam’,

وَلَقَدْ كَرَّ‌مْنَا بَنِي آدَمَ…

17:70 – “Wa laqad karramna bani adama…” (Surat al Isra)

“And We have certainly honored the children of Adam…” (The Night Journey 17:70)

“I have honoured the children of Adam.” Their honour, their reality, is much higher. They are the custodians of all My Grace and all My Realities. They begin to teach that this sun and this reality that is going to bring an izza (honor) to us, this carries the amr of Allah (AJ). These realities that are coming down, the world of form is only interested in the photon, it is only interested in the form. The people of haqaaiq are asking to reach to Allah’s Qadr (power), yaa Rabbi we want to reach Your Qudrah, Your Power, the realities that are dressing Your Holy Qur’an: “Qaaf wal Qur’an al majeed.” 

ق ۚ وَالْقُرْ‌آنِ الْمَجِيدِ ١
50:1– “Qaf, wal Quranil Majeed. ” (Surat Qaf)

“Qaf. By the honored Qur’an. ”  (Holy Quran 50:1)

Angels and Ruh bring Amr (Command) from Divinely Heart

Every power Allah (AJ) is sending through the Holy Qur’an. It means that every amr, every order, every authority is symbolically moving through these rays. That if you want to catch the reality of this amr, from what the malaikah are bringing of ishrat and orders from the heart of Sayyidina Muhammad (ﷺ). The Ruh is the authorized Muhammadan wali (saint) who is in charge of that reality, because the ruh is carrying a secret from Prophet (ﷺ). That secret is what governs the malaikah (angels) on that station. Allah (AJ) is describing: all My Commands for that planet are coming from there. Every amr, every order, every command is coming to you, from a source of power. We still don’t know the haqaaiq yet, but for us to be symbolic. That Allah (AJ) is showing there is a source of power and it is reaching to you, the angels are reaching to you.

This ‘Salam’ is Loaded with Power and Knowledge

Allah (aj) says, do you want to be granted from this salaam. Ahl al-haqaaiq (people of the reality) come and begin to teach, this salaam is a loaded reality. “Salaamun” means it is coming with this seen س [Shaykh shows letter seen س in the word salaam سلام ]. What is Allah (AJ) going to be dressing you? Because the people who are accepting Qur’an they pray salat al-Fajr (morning prayer), so then there must be a haqaaiq in the reality of that sun. The haqaaiq will show itself to be much more powerful than the sun. So it means Allah (AJ) is saying that: you want to reach My Amr, My orders that are carried by the malaikah and the ruh for you to understand the most purified realities of Prophet (ﷺ)? You say, “Yes, we want yaa Rabbi this salaam.”

Salam سلام = Seen س , Laam ل , Alif  ا Meem م

The Awliya (saints) come and teach this salaam سلام is carrying this sirr سر, it is carrying nur al anwaar wa seerat al asrar. It is carrying the ‘secret of light’ and ‘the light of all secrets’. It is carrying upon its tongue and its orders, this laam ل, is the conveyance of knowledge, lisaan al-haqq لسان الحق (holy Tongue of Truth). It carries upon it an izza, there is an alif here لا It carries upon it an izza from Allah (AJ) of that sirr سر. And it comes through this meem م. [I]

Salam سلام =

Seen س – Sirr سر = There is a Secret in Salaam

Laam and Alif لا =
a. Laam ل =
Lisan al Haq لسان الحق  –  Secret is carried upon the holy tongue of Truth – Lisan al Haq

b. Alif  ا – ‘Izzatullah – The holy tongue carries knowledge and has ‘Izzatullah (Divinely Honor)

Meem  م – Muhammadan reality – All the Power and Knowledge comes through Muhammadan reality

Meem م – Muhammadan Reality

Pray Tahajjud to enter Maqam al Mahmood مقام المحمود

Where Allah (AJ) tells you to pray tahajjud because you can enter into Maqaam al-Mahmood.

وَمِنَ اللَّيْلِ فَتَهَجَّدْ بِهِ نَافِلَةً لَّكَ عَسَىٰ أَن يَبْعَثَكَ رَبُّكَ مَقَامًا مَّحْمُودًا ﴿٧٩

17:79 – “Wa minal layli fatahajjad bihi, nafilatal laka ‘asaa an yab’athaka Rabbuka Maqaman Mahmooda.” (Surat al Isra)

“And pray in the small watches of the morning: (it would be) an additional prayer (or spiritual profit) for you: soon will your Lord raise you to a Station of Praise and Glory [Maqam al Mahmood]! ( Holy Quran, The Night Journey 17:79)

This is from Prophet (ﷺ). This ‘salaamun’ that Awliyaullah (saints) are inspiring for us to reach. That you want to be dressed by this sirr, you want this conveyance? Because the malaikah are going to be conveying to your heart these realities. This meem م is the Muhammadan dress. Maqaam al-Mahmood means it is coming from Prophet (ﷺ), Sayyidina Muhammad (ﷺ) on Earth, Sayyidina Mahmood (ﷺ) within the Heavens.

Keep Salatul Fajr, Allah (AJ) will dress you with Qadr

Means from salat at-tahajjud to salat al-Fajr all these dresses are coming, this salaam is coming. So in the level of Tariqah (spiritual path), they are teaching that keep your salat al-Fajr (morning prayer), Allah (AJ) will dress you with qadr (power). If you are missing your salat al-Fajr, you are missing a tremendous dress of qadr. To pray it by missing that [pray later] is one reality, ask for istighfaar (forgiveness) and pray. But how pious people become pious is because they are becoming fuluk ul mashhoon, they are becoming loaded souls, loaded with tremendous amounts of power.

وَآيَةٌ لَّهُمْ أَنَّا حَمَلْنَا ذُرِّ‌يَّتَهُمْ فِي الْفُلْكِ الْمَشْحُونِ ٤١
36:41 “Wa ayatul lahum anna hamalna dhurriyyatahum fil fulkil mashhooni.” (Surat Yaseen)

“And a sign for them is that we have carried their atoms/forefathers in the loaded ship.” (Holy Quran, Ya Sin 36:41)

Praying Salatul Fajr is the Best Remedy to all Problems

There is an energy that is dressing their soul, dressing their soul, why? Because they are at salat al-Fajr. Allah (AJ) promised “salaamun hiya hatta matlal Fajr” (97:5). Later we go to the higher levels of ‘hiya’, but for this understanding and the difficulties; that sickness and many difficulties begin to come and it’s najat, safety, is in salat al Fajr.

They are warning that what is coming upon the Earth of negativity is something that can’t be imagined. It is not something that you just sort of say, “Okay, I know this person is going to go away.” No, he is not going to go away. “My husband is a good person, he prays I don’t need to pray.” Your husband may have a nice grave, you may be in a different condition or vice versa.

The guides are warning for us, that do you want Allah’s Qadr, do you want Allah’s Power? He (AJ) is promising, from Holy Qur’an: I am going to be sending you a salaam, I am going to be sending you salaam.

سَلَامٌ هِيَ حَتَّىٰ مَطْلَعِ الْفَجْرِ ﴿٥

97:5 –  “Salaamun hiya hattaa mat la’il fajr (5)(Surat al Qadr)

“Peace it is until the emergence of dawn.(5) (Holy Quran, The Power)

Salaam has a Sir سر (Secret) of Maqam al Mahmood

Awliyaullah come and tell you, just from the level of Tariqah, telling you that salaam you should be really striving for because it has a sirr, a secret, within it. There is a lisan and angels who are going to begin to teach in your Fajr and this is a tremendous reality from Sayyidina Muhammad (ﷺ). It is an immense reward because Maqaam al-Mahmood is that Prophet (ﷺ)’s energy and lights will come lower at the time of Fajr to receive people. Means then they open the ni’mat from Allah (AJ) that Prophet (ﷺ)’s light to reach closer to people, to bring them closer back into that reality and begin to dress them.

At Fajr, Allah dresses Creation with Mercy and Salvation

تَنَزَّلُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ وَالرُّ‌وحُ فِيهَا بِإِذْنِ رَ‌بِّهِم مِّن كُلِّ أَمْرٍ‌ ٤
97:4 –“Tanazzalul malaikatu war Roh, fiha bidhne Rabbihim min kulle amr.” (Surat al Qadr)

“The angels and the Spirit descend therein by permission of their Lord for every Command/affair.“( Holy Quran, The Power 97:4

So means the awrad, the zikr, and every amal that we are doing its energy and power is coming and they are warning for us is to keep salat al Fajr. If you are sick keep your salat al Fajr, it is the best of medicine and best of remedy. If misguided and faith is low and doubt is entering, pray salat al Fajr. Allah’s salaamat is coming, Allah (AJ)’s najat (salvation) is coming. Allah (AJ)’s angels and the authority of the ruh will be dressing as He is dressing His leaves and flowers and nature and everything in Creation is waiting for Fajr.

Every bird begins to sing because now the faraj has come, salvation has come; they see the lights, they see the energies. There are so many creatures who go out just to lick that water, the first drop of water that is coming on the leaves. How many creatures come out just to drink that, come out just to take that, because they know Allah (AJ)’s ni`mat and mercy is upon that light and that energy. So they are warning for us in the days of difficulty don’t lose your Fajr. Keep your Fajr prayers. Allah (AJ)’s salaam is going to be dressing. Allah (AJ)’s energy and lights are going to be dressing.[I]

Seen س has ‘ilm al-yaqeen, ayn al-yaqeen, and haqq al-yaqeen

Knowledge, Vision, and Truth of Certainty 

Then they begin to go into the levels of the haqaaiq, the levels of reality, that this is coming, this salaam. What makes it so immense for our Creation is that this again has ilm al-yaqeen, ayn al-yaqeen, and haqq al-yaqeen. So think then what Allah (AJ) is going to be dressing is dressing this sirr. This ilm al-yaqeen, ayn al-yaqeen, haqq al-yaqeen is going to be coming down on a tongue, the tongue of the Muhammadan reality is now coming towards the believer.

Don’t Miss your Daily Awrad and Connection to that Authority

Those are the Ahl al-Turuq in which the Turuq are teaching them, giving them wazeefa and awrads, don’t lose those awrads, don’t drop those wazeefas. Every day there is a wazeefa that needs to be done. Anyone who doesn’t do it enters into thirty days of darkness. There is no way to stop it for one day. When you do the wazeefa and awrad it is like a ‘dial-up’ into a computer. That you are dialing-up into one of those authorities, from one of these ulul amr that Prophet (ﷺ) gave them that reality, give them these recitations. And if they adhere to that recitation they are connecting into that reality. That means from their authority, of their amr what Allah (AJ) dressed to them, they are going to be dressing you from ilm al yaqeen, ayn al-yaqeen, haqq al yaqeen through a tongue of reality which is a Muhammadan haqaiq. So by keeping all of that awrad/wazifa, it begins to dress, dress, dress you.

‘Hiya’ is the Power that Allah (AJ) Sends to Earth 

Hiya هي  = Ha ﻫ  , Ya ي
Yaa – ي  = Encompasses All Knowledge from Alif to Yaa

Then they begin to teach what realities Allah (AJ) is going to open. This yaa ي contains, because this hiya هي  is in reference to qadr, Allah’s izza and power. Qadr, qadr, qadr, hiya is in reference to Allah (AJ)’s Power. Awliyaullah come and teach that hiya is every uloom, uloom al-awaleen wal-akhireen (from beginning to the end). Yaa ي – every kalaam (word), every knowledge, from the Alif all the way to the last letter yaa– Every knowledge is from letters. As you write these letters these are knowledges being conveyed, realities are being conveyed.

Then they teach that everything is an eternal circle of realities, that once you reach to the yaa ي, the yaa actually goes back and begins with the alif ا , the yaa connects to the alif يا. Means every knowledge from alif, all the huroof to yaa are coming to that servant. Every reality that Allah (AJ) is going to teach is through these letters. If Allah (AJ) compacts and condenses the letters and sends you a yaa, He is sending you yaqeen. He is sending you knowledge.

Ha of هي  is for Hidayat هداية – Guidance

Every type of reality coming in that salat al-Fajr and Allah (AJ) granted its hidayat. This ha is for hidayat [هداية]  (ha of hiya هي). You want guidance, you want all of these realities hiya  is coming loaded. So ‘salaamun hiya’ Allah (AJ) is saying: this salamat that is now coming towards you with ilm al yaqeen, ayn al yaqeen, haqq al yaqeen as a Muhammadan reality means then they are going to begin and at higher levels the servant is going to begin to understand the lights are presented to him in Fajr. There will be angels and Awliya (saints) at their Fajr and every knowledge is being conveyed into their heart from the secret of hiyya. Allah (AJ) condenses, that every kalam (word) I have from alif, baa, taa, thaa, everything that is making My Knowledges, all the Holy Qur’an is in those letters, He said: I am going to package them all in a yaa for you and I am going to send it accompanied by hidayat and guidance.

If you look at the haa [ ], it has a waw [و ]inside a cave, and the people of true guidance they have a waw within their heart. Means everything they do is based on love. These are the people of immense love that Allah (AJ) is going to send a hiyya to them that every knowledge, every reality is going to be conveyed to you.

Every knowledge is Conveyed at Fajr Time

So why then pious people and those who follow Awliyaullah, never miss unless they are sick or have difficulty, they never miss their Fajr? Because that is the time of their schooling, that is time in which Allah (AJ) is dressing them and blessing them. Allah (AJ) is conveying every salaam, means every mushkilat, every difficulty is taken away at Fajr time. Every knowledge is conveyed at Fajr time. Every association and blessing and barakah is granted, at Fajr time.

Fajr is the Faraj (Salvation) to all Creation

That is why the Fajr is actually Faraj, that you move around the letters and its faraj, salvation. Allah (AJ) granting the nation of Sayyidina Muhammad (ﷺ) a tremendous salvation to be free from difficulty and then in all the levels of haqaaiq because you are first coming to the commands of Allah (AJ) to pray the Fajr then they begin to describe the haqaaiq of that reality, that it takes away every difficulty, takes away every mushkilat, every du`a that is going to be accepted is most accepted at salat al-Fajr.

Contemplate/Meditate at Tahajjud, you will be dressed by Salam

Then for Ahl al-Marifah who are going and asking for knowledges that all the knowledge they heard and they studied, as soon as they enter into salat at-Tahajjud and they begin to contemplate that what did the shaykh just talk about? That night when you are meditating, and reading the articles or reading that understanding or listening again to it, or even just meditating to Surat al-Yaseen at Fajr at tahajjud time, connecting your heart with Mawlana Shaykh and listening to Surat al-YaSeen, which is the heart of Prophet (ﷺ), it is the heart of Holy Qur’an. Then Allah (AJ) says, when Qur’an is recited, stop, sit, contemplate, meditate so that Allah’s Mercy can dress you; ‘salaam’ can dress. Means every reality will be opened at that.

وَإِذَا قُرِئَ الْقُرْآنُ فَاسْتَمِعُوا لَهُ وَأَنصِتُوا لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ ﴿٢٠٤

7:204 – “wa idhaa quria al Qur’an fastami’u lahu, wa anseetu la’alakum turhamon”

“So when the Qur’an is recited, then listen to it, remain silent and pay attention, that you may receive mercy” (Surah al A’raf 7:204).

We pray that in those days of difficulty Allah (AJ) grant us a himma, a strength not to leave. Shaitan only wants difficulty for us and Shaitan makes everything to be difficult, “Don’t do that. don’t, don’t, don’t listen to him, don’t pray your Fajr, don’t do your awrad, don’t do like that, don’t come here,” why? To put hardship upon the believer until they turn into difficulty and immense hardship. We pray that Allah (AJ) give us a himma and strength to follow whatever Allah (AJ) wanted for us and to be dressed by Allah (AJ)’s infinite rahma, immense rahma, that can’t even be imagined.

Subhaana rabbika rabbil izzati amma yasifoon wa salaamun alal mursaleen walhamdulillahi rabbil aalameen. Bi hurmatil Muhammad al-Mustafa wa bi sirri surat al-Fatiha.
