From the Realities of Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani (Q) as taught by Shaykh Nurjan Mirahmadi.

Audhu Billahi min ash Shaitanir Rajeem,
Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem.

يَوْمَ تَرَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ يَسْعَىٰ نُورُهُم بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَبِأَيْمَانِهِم بُشْرَاكُمُ الْيَوْمَ جَنَّاتٌ تَجْرِي مِن تَحْتِهَا الْأَنْهَارُ خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا ۚ ذَٰلِكَ هُوَ الْفَوْزُ الْعَظِيمُ ﴿١٢

57:12 – “Yawma taral mumineena wal muminati yas’a nooruhum bayna aydeehim wa bi aymanihim bushrakumu alyawma jannaatun tajri min tahti hal anharu khalideena fiha, dhalika huwa alfawzul ‘Azheem.” (Surat Al Hadid)

“On the Day you (Muhammad (saws) see the believing men and believing women, their light proceeding/shining before them and on their right hands, [it will be said], “Good tidings for you today are [of] gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein you will abide eternally.” That is what is the supreme and highest achievement.” (Holy Quran, Iron)

Alhamdulillahi rabbil aalameen was salaatu was salaamu alaa ashraf al mursaleen Sayyidina wa Mawlana Muhammad al Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Madad ya Sayyidi ya Rasul al Kareem, ya Habeeb al Azheem, unzur halana wa ishfalana abina bi madadakum wa nazarakum, madad ya Sayyidi ya Sultan al Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Abd Allah Fa’iz ad Daghestani, madad ya Sayyidi Sultan al Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Adil al Haqqani, madad ya Shaykh al Quloobina Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani. Madad al-haqq wa hujatallahi al-mukhlis.

 Audhu Billahi min ash Shaitanir Rajeem, Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, “Ateeullah wa atee ar rasul wa ulul amrin minkum” Obey Allah, Obey the Messenger, and those on Authority.” A reminder always for myself, Ya RabbiAna abduk al ajeez wa da’eef wa miskin wa zhalim wa jahl; and by the Grace of Allah (AJ) that we are still in existence and the Rahmah of Allah (AJ) InshaAllah to always be upon us and dress us and guide us.

Know Yourself before you Claim to Know your Lord

Alhamdulillah, they take from holy hadith, from holy Qur’an, from holy hadith oceans of reality. And from Prophetﷺ’s holy sayings that who knows himself will know his Lord. That the way of knowing the self and the reality of our physiology, the reality of our being is an understanding that is of a tremendous depth. It’s not something so simple, it’s not something so plain that we are Allah (AJ)’s chosen creation, “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)

Our Hands are Encoded with Secrets

That this chosen creation Allah (AJ) has encoded with many realities and many gifts. One understanding is in the reality of the holy hand. That Allah (AJ) has encoded our hands with a secret, a secret of our reality, a secret of our being. It’s not just a piece of flesh, and that the lines that are upon them are all codes from Allah (AJ). In our life, when we take the holy hadith of Prophet ﷺ and we take a way of tafakkur and contemplation, to know myself. Before I can claim to know Allah (AJ), astaghfirullah, is to know myself that, ‘Ya Rabbi, what have you bestowed upon me of these realities of my being?’

مَنْ عَرَفَ نَفْسَهْ فَقَدْ عَرَفَ رَبَّهُ

 “Man ‘arafa nafsahu faqad ‘arafa Rabbahu”

“Who knows himself, knows his Lord.” Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ)

Awliyaullah (saints) come into our life and they begin to teach that your hands are a receptacle. They are points of reality of all your inner being, Allah (AJ) has put those secrets upon the hand. Means every point of the hand has a connecting organ, has a connecting reality inside the body, similar to the feet.

Don’t Place Importance on your Words & Recitation

How we got to this subject tonight is because there are people who place such an importance on their kalam, on their words, on their mouth. Greatness of Allah (AJ), greatness of Sayyidina Muhammadﷺ bringing the Words of Allah (AJ), that they place an importance upon their mouth, their speech, their qirat, their pronunciation.

Allah (AJ) describes in Holy Qur’an that, ‘We’re going to seal your mouth,’ in Surat al-Yaseen, verse 65. Surat YaSeen, from the heart of Qur’an, which we keep teaching Surat al Yaseen is the heart of Sayyidina Muhammadﷺ. Prophet’s heart is Manzil al Qur’an in which the Holy Qur’an is emanating from that reality.

Allah Will Seal their Mouth on Judgment Day

What Allah (AJ) says from the heart of Holy Qur’an, Surat Yaseen, that ‘We’re going to seal their mouth.”

الْيَوْمَ نَخْتِمُ عَلَىٰ أَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَتُكَلِّمُنَا أَيْدِيهِمْ وَتَشْهَدُ أَرْجُلُهُم بِمَا كَانُوا يَكْسِبُونَ ﴿٦٥

36:65 – “Al yawma nakhtimu ‘ala afwahihim wa tukallimuna aydihim, wa tashhadu arjuluhum, bima kanu yaksibun.” (Surat YaSeen)

“That Day, We will seal over their mouths. And their hands will speak to us, and their feet testify, to all that they did and earned.” (Holy Quran)

Allah (AJ) says, ‘the day that We’re going to seal their mouth,’ coming from heart of Holy Qur’an. Always a reminder that ‘We are going to seal their mouth’. We have said many times before, Allah (AJ) is first to know that that mouth of yours is filled with lies. That mouth of yours said so many things; that mouth of yours testified to so many things. Allah (AJ) saying, the first thing He is going to do is : seal the mouth. As soon as you arrive at that destination, Yawm al-Mashr, (the day of gathering/judgment day), Allah (AJ) seals the mouth.

So then immediately awliyaullah come into our lives, say, ‘Don’t put so much importance on your kalam, because Allah (AJ) going to be sealing that mouth’. Means then what this mouth has to say, is of no importance. What Allah (AJ) then is going to ask? is that ‘I’m going to speak to their hands. Their hands will begin to talk; and their feet will testify to their rizq and what they earned’.

People don’t talk anymore, they Type

SubhanAllah how Allah (AJ) prepared us for the last days. Can you imagine this 500 years ago? They say, ‘Oh, ya Rabbi, what are you going to want from my hands, I’m just cutting log and cutting wood and not to the extreme of harming people’. Allah (AJ) is, is giving us isharat in these days that SubhanAllah people are not even talking anymore. They’re already moving to Yawm al-Mashr is coming, that people don’t know how to talk anymore.

You know, children have no verbal skills. They are like, [silently making faces], because they lost their ability to talk and to communicate. Especially computer people, they lose their ability to interact and talk casually, politely, nicely. They lost all their social skills because they are behind a computer, they’re typing all day long, typing, typing, typing. And they think whatever they type, it doesn’t matter. Allah (AJ) is giving us a sign, ‘No in those last days you’re going to understand what this is about. You’re going to understand that because as you approach the last days, you’re closer to your paradise reality.

As we are moving closer to the last days, more and more people don’t talk, they don’t socialize. They don’t even know how to communicate without insulting somebody else. And to the fact that they don’t even talk anymore and all their talking with their fingers. They type and type and type every type of insanity, every type of craziness.

Your Hands will Testify on What you do

And Allah (AJ) says, ‘Your fingers are going to talk and to testify to Me. They’re going to testify to Me of what they’re doing’.

وَتُكَلِّمُنَا أَيْدِيهِمْ وَتَشْهَدُ أَرْجُلُهُم بِمَا كَانُوا يَكْسِبُونَ ﴿٦٥…

36:65 – “…wa tukallimuna aydihim, wa tashhadu arjuluhum, bima kanu yaksibun.” (Surat YaSeen)

“…And their hands will speak to us, and their feet testify, to all that they did and earned.” (Holy Quran)

So this is a sign for us how Allah (AJ) is guiding the nation of Sayyidina Muhammadﷺ and reminding us that your mouth is not of importance, ‘I’m going to ask your hands what they did. I’m going to ask what they typed, what they wrote,’ because now the hand is the one that’s speaking in this dunya. This typing and texting all day long, and they think it’s not anything.

Your Identity is on your Thumb

Even they text with their thumb, and SubhanAllah how in the realities of the hand, your identity in Divinely Presence is on your thumb. Allah says, ‘We’ll bring you back to life all the way to the imprint of your thumb’.

أَيَحْسَبُ الْإِنسَانُ أَلَّن نَّجْمَعَ عِظَامَهُ ﴿٣﴾ بَلَىٰ قَادِرِينَ عَلَىٰ أَن نُّسَوِّيَ بَنَانَهُ ﴿٤

75:3-4 – “Ayahsabul insaanu al lan najm’a ‘izaamah (3)  Balaa qaadireena ‘alaaa an nusawwiya banaanah. (4)” (Surat al Qiyamah)

“Does man think that We will not assemble his bones?(3) Yes. We have the power to restore (even) his very fingertips.” (Holy Quran, The Resurrection, 75:3-4)

Your thumb carries a reality of who you are, your code, like a bar code in the grocery store, your bar code is on your thumb. Allah (AJ) is going to bring you back exactly to who you are even to the point of your bar code will be exact, your thumb print. 

That ‘your feet are going to testify to where it earned’. Means where your feet are going, Allah (AJ) is going to, to bring all of its realities of where it went.

  وَتَشْهَدُ أَرْجُلُهُم بِمَا كَانُوا يَكْسِبُونَ ﴿٦٥…

36:65 – “… wa tashhadu arjuluhum, bima kanu yaksibun.” (Surat YaSeen)

“… and their feet testify, to all that they did and earned.” (Holy Quran)

Your Hands are the Ambassador of Your Heart

So then awliya (saints) come and the begin to teach us the importance, that SubhanAllah if Allah (AJ) is going to be asking these hands there must be something of a tremendous reality. And they begin to teach us that actually your hand is the ambassador of your being. Before I can get to meet you, I’m going to meet your hand. So it extends itself to introduce you. So then it has a tremendous reality that it’s an ambassador of your reality.

They can tell the condition of your heart by the light emanating from your hand. So means the hand will show the condition of the heart. If the heart is dark and the heart filled with hypocrisy and the heart filled with bad characteristics, you find those hands not to be good hands. Those hands hit, they beat, they do all sorts of aggressive actions. It’s a reflection of the condition of their heart. That there is nobody with a good heart, doing horrible things with their hand because the hand is an ambassador; if the heart is good the hands are very good. If the heart is bad, the hands are very bad.

From the Hands of the Believers, Light emanate

So our life is to build the light and the reality of the heart so that it begins to reflect to the reality of the hand.  Where Allah (AJ) describes that there be a people on the Day of Resurrection that you’ll see the believing people and a light will be emanating from their right hand out.

يَوْمَ تَرَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ يَسْعَىٰ نُورُهُم بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَبِأَيْمَانِهِم بُشْرَاكُمُ الْيَوْمَ جَنَّاتٌ تَجْرِي مِن تَحْتِهَا الْأَنْهَارُ خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا ۚ ذَٰلِكَ هُوَ الْفَوْزُ الْعَظِيمُ ﴿١٢

57:12 – “Yawma taral mumineena wal muminati yas’a nooruhum bayna aydeehim wa bi aymanihim bushrakumu alyawma jannaatun tajri min tahti hal anharu khalideena fiha, dhalika huwa alfawzul ‘Azheem.” (Surat Al Hadid)

“On the Day you (Muhammad (saws) see the believing men and believing women, their light proceeding/shining before them and on their right hands, [it will be said], “Good tidings for you today are [of] gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein you will abide eternally.” That is what is the supreme and highest achievement. (Holy Quran, Iron)

Heart of the Believer is the House of Allah (AJ)

And Allah (AJ) stresses the importance of the hands,“Wa tabarak al ladhi biyadihil mulk. – Blessed is He in Whose hands is the Dominion…” (Holy Quran 67:1) Means now, they begin to make us to contemplate, that my tabarak is upon their hand, because it carries a mulk and a sovereignty from Allah (AJ). Means what I am bestowing upon that heart which is now reflecting to its ambassador, the hand, it has tremendous tabarak. Why- because Allah (AJ) described that, ‘Qalb al-mu’min baytullah – The heart of the believer is the House of Allah’.

قَلْبَ الْمُؤْمِنْ بَيْتُ الرَّبْ
“Qalb al mu’min baytur rabb.”

“The heart of the believer is the House of the Lord.” Hadith Qudsi

If that heart is clean and the character is clean and the conditions are reaching perfection, then light of Allah (AJ), the love of Sayyiduna Muhammadﷺ begins to occupy the heart. When it begins to occupy the heart, they are teaching us, our physiology of realities.

Blessed are the Hands that Carry the Mulk (Sovereignty)

If that heart is an enlightened heart, then Allah (AJ) is teaching, “Tabarak al-ladhi biyadihil mulk.” “Blessed is He in Whose hands is Dominion (of this world)…”

تَبَارَكَ الَّذِي بِيَدِهِ الْمُلْكُ وَهُوَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ ﴿١

 

67:1 – “Tabarakal ladhee biyadihil mulku wa huwa ‘ala kulli shay in qadeer.” (Surat al Mulk)                 

“Blessed is He in Whose hands is Dominion; and He over all things has Power.” (Holy Quran, The Sovereignty)

There is a tabarak in their yad, in their hand, because of the mulk that being established within their heart. And the Naqshbandi awrad, we recite Surat al-Mulk at Zuhr and Surat al-Mulk at Salatel Isha. Why- for mulk wal malakut: for the physical domain and the spiritual domain. So the two mulks, we call Prophetﷺ the Sultan ath-Thaqalain, the Sultan of the Two Realities, two hands- one for mulk and one for malakut.

This hand and its reality will be based on the condition upon the heart. When that heart begins to bring the Mulk of Allah (AJ), the sovereign King of Allah (AJ), that, ‘I’m not on heaven and I’m not on earth. I’m on the heart of My believer.’

مَا وَسِعَنِيْ لَا سَمَائِيْ ولا اَرْضِيْ وَلَكِنْ وَسِعَنِيْ قَلْبِ عَبْدِيْ اَلْمُؤْمِنْ

“Maa wasi`anee laa Samayee, wa la ardee, laakin wasi’anee qalbi ‘Abdee al Mu’min.”

“Neither My Heavens nor My Earth can contain Me, but the heart of my Believing Servant.” (Hadith Qudsi conveyed by Prophet Muhammad (saw)

As that light is entering into the heart, Allah (AJ) says that the ambassador of yours, your hands, your yad is going to become noble. If it opens into the realities and Allah (AJ) grants that heart to be open, Ahl al-Basira, Allah (AJ) describes Ahl al-Basira in the Qur’an, that, ‘Whom their hearts are opened.’

Allah’s (Aj) Power is upon the Hands that Carry the Heavens (Malakut)

Then what Surah Yaseen describes in them, “Subhanal ladhi biyadihi Malakot.- Glory be to Him in Whose hand is the heavenly dominion “

فَسُبْحَانَ الَّذِي بِيَدِهِ مَلَكُوتُ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَإِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ ﴿٨٣

36:83 “Fasubhanal ladhee biyadihi Malakotu kulli shay in, wa ilayhi turja’oon.” (Surat 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)

‘My Subhan, glory be to Me whom I bestowed upon the hand power,’ – not Allah (AJ)’s Hand, Allah (AJ) has no hands. This is an inheritance Allah (AJ) giving: the Hand of Allah (AJ) is His Might and Majesty. But the real reflection of the hand of Allah (AJ) is Sayyidina Muhammadﷺ, is the reflection of Allah (AJ). All the might and majesty and Allah’s Subhan upon the hand of Prophetﷺ, upon the hand of all the prophets.

Take Bayah (Allegiance) with Saints, Allah’s Hand is upon their Hands

And that’s why you take bayah: “Inal ladhina yubayi’unaka innama yubayinullah, yadullahi fawqa aydeehim,…” “those who give Baya (pledge allegiance) to you, [O Muhammad] – they are actually giving Baya (pledge allegiance) to Allah. The hand of Allah is over their hands.” (Quran 48:10)

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يُبَايِعُونَكَ إِنَّمَا يُبَايِعُونَ اللَّـهَ يَدُ اللَّـهِ فَوْقَ أَيْدِيهِمْ ۚ فَمَن نَّكَثَ فَإِنَّمَا يَنكُثُ عَلَىٰ نَفْسِهِ ۖ وَمَنْ أَوْفَىٰ بِمَا عَاهَدَ عَلَيْهُ اللَّـهَ فَسَيُؤْتِيهِ أَجْرًا عَظِيمًا ﴿١٠﴾

48:10 – “Innal ladheena yubayi’oonaka innama yubayi’on Allaha yadullahi fawqa aydeehim, faman nakatha fa innama yankuthu ‘ala nafsihi, wa man awfa bima ‘ahada ‘alayhu Allaha fasayu teehi ajran ‘azheema.”

“Indeed, those who give Baya (pledge allegiance) to you, [O Muhammad] – they are actually giving Baya (pledge allegiance) to Allah. The hand of Allah is over their hands. So he whoever breaks his pledge/oath, only breaks it to the detriment/Harm/loss of himself. And whoever fulfills their covenant (Bayah) that which he has promised Allah (aj) – He will grant him a great reward. “(Surat Al Fath (Victory) 48:10)

We say, ‘Ya rabbi, I want my hand on Your Hand.’

He says, ‘then take the hand of Sayyidina Muhammadﷺ. All My Glory, all My Mulk, all My Power: “Subhanal ladhi biyadihi malakot kulli shayin, wa ilayhi turja’on.” (Holy Quran 36:83) ‘All My Power, all My Might, all My Kingdoms are upon the power of that hand, and to it you will be returning.’

Means then the majesty of opening the heart and the reality that reflecting into the hands. So means the hands of those whom their hearts are opened are not like normal hands. Allah (AJ) is describing that, ‘We bestow upon them an authority to have an authority in the mulk of this physical world, but you may not see it or sense it. And in My Divinely Kingdom of malakut, they have a tremendous authority. And from them lights are emanating, from their entire being lights are emanating.’

Decoding the Right Hand١٨ (18)
18th Name of Allah Al Fatah (The Opener) &
18th Name of Rasulallah – Nabi ur Rahmah
(Prophet of Mercy)

Then Awliya begin to teach that that right hand brings a Noor (light) and a rahmah (mercy). The codes upon the right hand is a 1 and a 8 – ١٨ the line is a 1 and a ٨ (8). For those who recite Dalailul Khayrat, they recite the 99 Names of Allah (AJ) and 201 names of Sayyidina Muhammadﷺ. And they understood and they know from their shaykhs that every IsmAllah has to have an Ismur Rasul to open.

So 18th name, Al-Fatah, Allah (AJ) is going to open. 18th name of Prophet is Nabiur Rahmah. So for Al Fatah to open, you have to ask the permission of a Nabiur Rahmah, ‘Ya sayyidi, ya RasulAllah ﷺ, everything is La ilaha illallah Muhammadun RasulAllahﷺ – (There is no deity but Allah and Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is the Messenger of Allah).Allah (AJ) don’t want to hear from me and you without going to Prophetﷺ. That rahmah to open, that mercy to open, means everything is coded upon hands.

It’s not something simple, it’s not something small. When that reality wants to open means they begin to teach and train us that as you are perfecting your heart and cleaning your heart, these lights will begin to emanate upon your hand. Means that’s why those whom have permission for healing, their hands are ignited. In this day and age they don’t touch because they don’t want to become sick. But the light and Fatah ar-Rahmah, these are the lights of mercy emanate from their right hand. And wherever their hand moves, that light is emanating.

Decoding the Left Hand٨١ (81)
18th Name of Allah – Al Muntaqim (the Avenger)
18th Name of RasulAllah ﷺ –

The Left hand has 81 – ٨١on it,  81 means sifat al Muntaqim (the Avenger), Allah (AJ)’s avenging. So the mulk has avenging because the mulk (material world) is the abode of fire. The malakut is the Fatah ur Rahmah (Opening of the Mercy). That’s why in your salah, Allah (AJ) wants your right hand to hold your left, that take control of your malakut, that your malakut has to govern your mulk and your physicality. The attributes that govern your soul and your reality has to take control of that which governs your physicality. So means these sifats are dressing and controlling our being.

 

Reality Iron and Imam Mahdi (as) – Muhammadan Guide  (Holy Quran 57:12)

When they are understood and they open their heart, means they bring a light, a light emanates from their hand. This is from Allah (AJ), in Surat al-Hadid, Surah 57, verse 12 (holy Quran 57:12).

يَوْمَ تَرَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ يَسْعَىٰ نُورُهُم بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَبِأَيْمَانِهِم بُشْرَاكُمُ الْيَوْمَ جَنَّاتٌ تَجْرِي مِن تَحْتِهَا الْأَنْهَارُ خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا ۚ ذَٰلِكَ هُوَ الْفَوْزُ الْعَظِيمُ ﴿١٢

57:12 – “Yawma taral mumineena wal muminati yas’a nooruhum bayna aydeehim wa bi aymanihim bushrakumu alyawma jannaatun tajri min tahti hal anharu khalideena fiha, dhalika huwa alfawzul ‘Azheem.” (Surat Al Hadid)

“On the Day you (Muhammad (saws) see the believing men and believing women, their light proceeding/shining before them and on their right hands, [it will be said], “Good tidings for you today are [of] gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein you will abide eternally.” That is what is the supreme and highest achievement. (Holy Quran, Iron)

57- 57th name of Sayyidina Muhammadﷺ is Al-Mahdi ﷺ. So hadid has to do with guidance. People say, ‘Oh, there’s no mention of Sayyidina Mahdi (AS).’ Oh, there’s many mentions of Sayyidina Mahdi (AS) but you may not know them. Hadid- an iron has to do with guidance.

The Christians know in their bible that someone’s coming on a horse, the white rider, and in his hand is iron. And say, ‘Oh that’s Sayyiduna Isa (AS) coming.’ No. no- that’s Sayyidina Mahdi (AS) coming! He’s known of iron, hadid.

Iron is Sent from Heaven as a guidance and a Natural GPS within Creation 

And hadid Allah (AJ) is saying not from your dunya but hadid comes tanzila, it comes from the heavens onto this earth.(Quran 57:25)

لَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا رُسُلَنَا بِالْبَيِّنَاتِ وَأَنزَلْنَا مَعَهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْمِيزَانَ لِيَقُومَ النَّاسُ بِالْقِسْطِ ۖ وَأَنزَلْنَا الْحَدِيدَ فِيهِ بَأْسٌ شَدِيدٌ وَمَنَافِعُ لِلنَّاسِ … ﴿٢٥

“Laqad arsalnaa Rusulanaa bil baiyinati, wa anzalnaa ma’ahumul Kitaba wal Mizana liyaqoman naasu bilqist, wa anzalnal hadeeda feehi baasun shadeedun wa manaafi’u linnaasi …” (Surat al Hadid)

“We have already sent Our messengers with clear signs/evidences and sent down with them the Books and the balance (of right and wrong), that the people may stand forth/maintain [their affairs] in justice. And We sent down iron, in which is (material for) great military might as well as many benefits for mankind, …” (Holy Quran, Iron)

 

 

Guidance is given to you by the iron within your body. Every creation and creature has guidance from iron. The iron picks up the energy. With the iron is our natural GPS system. So the birds, how they fly and how they know where the earth is and where the ocean is, where their destination is. The iron within their body is what Allah (AJ) sends a qudra and nazmah to it. The energy that is coming to that, it gives its coordinates and its guidance. If your iron is imperfected and the iron within your body is not clean, your entire guidance system goes off and the iron is what makes the blood to be red. We said that in other talks, it’s tremendous reality upon insan.

The iron within the earth is what makes the earth to have a magnetic field. There is a molten iron in the core of the earth that continuously moving and heated up; based on that iron, there’s an energy field around this earth. What about ourselves, we are a reflection from that earth. The iron within your body, this is why hadid has to do with guidance, and Allah (AJ) showing that that guidance and that light will be emanating from your being.

Reality of the Sun (Prophets) and Perfected Moons (Siddiqin, Shuhada, Saliheen)

Then Awliya (saints) begin to teach that this hand of yours is all encoded. So this Fatah ar-Rahmah that you’re trying to open that reality and open from these lights, in your tafakkur then you begin to understand. Why Allah (AJ) has these 5 fingers with 3 lines on each finger? So that’s 15! Because the hand and the symbol of perfection is qamar (moon). The Shams (Sun) is for the nabiyin (Prophets), qamar is for siddiqin, shuhadahi, was-salihin. Because they cannot be a sun. The sun is for the nabi’yin whom Allah (AJ) gave them risalat; the most majestic sun, the sun of all realities is Sayyidina Muhammadﷺ. 

وَمَن يُطِعِ اللّهَ وَالرَّسُولَ فَأُوْلَـئِكَ مَعَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمَ اللّهُ عَلَيْهِم مِّنَ النَّبِيِّينَ وَالصِّدِّيقِينَ وَالشُّهَدَاء وَالصَّالِحِينَ وَحَسُنَ أُولَـئِكَ رَفِيقًا

4:69 – “Wa man yuti’ Allaha war Rasola faolayeka ma’al ladheena an’ama Allahu ‘alayhim minan Nabiyeena, was Siddiqeena,  wash Shuhadai, was Saliheena wa hasuna olayeka rafeeqan” (Surat An Nisa)

“And whoever obeys Allah and the messenger, then those are with the ones on whom Allah bestowed his softness amongst the prophets, the highly Righteous [Truthful], the Witnesses to the truth, and the Righteous. And excellent are those as companions.” (The Women 4:69)

The Phases of the Moon and 15 lines on your Fingers 

So means that you cannot be a sun but Allah (AJ) made us to be qamarun (Moons). You can be a moon if you reach the reality of your heart.

You have 15 lines on one hand: 5 fingers, 3 lines on each finger. Right hand is noor (light). Means then the first 15 days of the month, they are noorani. These are the 15 days in which the moon is being dressed as it’s approaching towards its reality. What they call the birth- the moon is born and beginning to move towards the reality of the sun. Means 15 days of noor and light is reaching towards its perfection and that’s why the full moon is the sign of perfection.

So means that the real hand and the majestic hand in which Allah (AJ) describing tabarak, ‘Blessed are their hands’ because these are the qamars of My Divinely Presence’. Their whole being is they follow their shams; they don’t move left and they don’t move right. That shams and that sun dresses their reality and give them 15 days of light. So every time they are making zikr, they are asking, ‘Ya Rabbi, bless these realities. Make every day of these 15 days to be filled with noor.’

Then another 5 fingers, have another 3 lines on them; and this is 15 days of the waning moon. Means after the moon reaches its perfection, it’s now in the phase of death. Everything is born and everything dies. Everything- we have a day and we have a night.

كُلُّ نَفْسٍ ذَائِقَةُ الْمَوْتِ ۗ وَنَبْلُوكُم بِالشَّرِّ وَالْخَيْرِ فِتْنَةً ۖ وَإِلَيْنَا تُرْجَعُونَ ﴿٣٥﴾

21:35 – “Kullu nafsin dhayiqatul Mawti, wa nablokum bish sharri wal khayri fitnatan, wa ilayna turja’oon.” (Surat al Anbiya)

“Every soul shall have a taste of death: and We test you by evil and by good by way of trial. to Us must ye return.” (Holy Quran, the Prophets)

Everything has a cycle of its birth and its death, from the planets to our being on this earth to all the flowers and everything that we see around us.

Who Knows himself will know his Lord

The way, and the reality of the hadith, ‘Who knows himself will know his Lord,’ is not something small; it’s an ocean that can continue to keep opening.

مَنْ عَرَفَ نَفْسَهْ فَقَدْ عَرَفَ رَبَّهُ
“Man ‘arafa nafsahu faqad ‘arafa Rabbahu”

“Who knows himself, knows his Lord.” Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ)

So when Allah (AJ) want you to know His Heavenly Kingdom, they begin to teach you about yourself. ‘Ya Rabbi, what have you dressed me with?’ “Wa laqad karamna Bani Adam – We have certainly honored the children of Adam,”.

وَلَقَدْ كَرَّمْنَا بَنِي آدَمَ وَحَمَلْنَاهُمْ فِي الْبَرِّ وَالْبَحْرِ وَرَزَقْنَاهُم مِّنَ الطَّيِّبَاتِ وَفَضَّلْنَاهُمْ عَلَىٰ كَثِيرٍ مِّمَّنْ خَلَقْنَا تَفْضِيلًا ﴿٧٠

17:70 – “Wa laqad karramna banee adama, wa hamalna hum filbarri wal bahri wa razaqnahum minat tayyibati wa faddalnahum ‘ala katheerin mimman khalaqna tafdeela. (Surat al Isra)

“And We have certainly honored the children of Adam and carried them on the land and sea and provided good and pure sustenance and bestow upon them favours, and preferred them over much of what We have created, with [definite] preference.” (Holy Quran, The Night Journey)

There are 8 holding the Throne of the 1 Sultan – 18

‘We have honoured this creation of Adam, that he carries a majestic light from Our Divinely Presence; We stamped him with names.’ We said before that the 1 and the 8, when Allah (AJ) describes 8 will hold the throne and 1 will be the sultan on the Day Of Judgement.

وَالْمَلَكُ عَلَىٰ أَرْ‌جَائِهَا ۚ وَيَحْمِلُ عَرْ‌شَ رَ‌بِّكَ فَوْقَهُمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ ثَمَانِيَةٌ ١٧

69:17 “Wal Malaku ‘ala arjayeha, wa yahmilu ‘Arsha Rabbika fawqahum yawmaidhin thamaniyatun” (Surat Haqqah)

“And the angels/ will be on its sides, and eight will, that Day, bear the Throne of thy Lord above them.” (Holy Quran, The Reality 69:17)

What – is Allah (AJ) going to be sitting on a chair for 8 people to hold him? Is there a chair that can hold Allah (AJ)? No, because the one who is holding the chair maybe then as powerful- it’s impossible! There is a sultan, Sultan an-Nasira (Victorious king), who will be sitting upon that chair. Our life is to be from those who serve the sultan. That’s why we described in the jummah ‘tahzim an Nabi. Our life is to glorify Allah (AJ) and his beloved Sayyidina Muhammadﷺ. Be from the 8 that hold the 1.

Awliya are the Walking Moons on Earth

Then they begin to teach: then that heart will begin to open. Every time you’re making wudu, what kind of codes are you opening upon this reality? You’re opening Fatah ar-Rahmah, you’re opening all the realities of light upon the right hand. You are opening all the realities of these 15 days of light to reach the perfection of the full moon. So means on the 15th day, those lights are strongest upon their hand because they are the reflection of what you see in the heavens. They are walking moons upon the earth. The moon represents the people of annihilation, has nothing; if they’ve been annihilated, as a result they reflect all those realities.

Right Hand – Rahma (Mercy) – Eat with it
Left Hand – Fire: Clean with it

Then they begin to teach, the left hand is our from ‘Izzatullah, sifat al-muntaqim, because that left hand is a fire. If that left hand is not controlled, it becomes like the fire of jahannam upon people. And that fire is why Allah (AJ) wants you to clean yourself with your left hand, not your right hand. Your right hand is of a light and rahmah. Allah wants you to eat and put rahmah and light upon your food, and put that food into your mouth. Everything has a reason, not always this is right or left or this is just by mistake. It’s a immense reality that put your light and rahmah upon your food and that rahmah to go into your mouth.

Later they teach the people who know and they use that energy on a daily basis, what emanating from their left hand is a fire, “Qul ya nahru kulli bardan wa salaman ‘ala Ibrahim. – Say O fire, be cool and Peaceful upon Abraham.”

 قُلْنَا يَا نَارُ كُونِي بَرْدًا وَسَلَامًا عَلَىٰ إِبْرَاهِيمَ ﴿٦٩

21:69 – “Qulna ya Naaru, kuni Bardan wa Salaman ‘ala Ibrahim.” (Surat al Anbiya)                
“We said, “O fire, be cool and Peaceful upon Abraham.” (Holy Quran, The Prophets 21:69)

Control Your Firey nature to make it Fire of Healing

If they don’t know how to control you see that their left hand an aggression and their firey reality will overtake them. That’s why Allah (AJ) then say, ‘You control your fiery nature’. That’s why we hold the left hand with the right hand in Salah (daily prayer).  If you control that fire, you can make it to be a fire of healing because you have to burn away bad to bring the light of something good, so that that which is najas and dirty for you Allah (AJ) says, ‘Use your left hand. The fire of that hand will take away its badness and its germs’. Everything has a tremendous reality upon our being, it’s not something random.

Awliya are teaching us how to open all of these realities; these are the people of tafakkur and contemplation, the people of realities.

Allah’s Power is upon Awliya’s (Saints) Hands

Means that they open their heart; as they begin to open their heart, Allah (AJ) begins to dress them. That from the holy hadith that  they did their fard (obligatory worship), they are approaching through their sunnah, ‘I become the eyes in which see, I become the ears in which they hear,’ each of them has a reality. ‘I become the breath in which they breathe, I become the mouth in which they speak, I become the hands in which they touch,’ means, ‘My Yad, My Power upon their hands.’

… وَلَا يَزَالُ عَبْدِي يَتَقَرَّبُ إلَيَّ بِالنَّوَافِلِ حَتَّى أُحِبَّهُ، فَإِذَا أَحْبَبْتُهُ كُنْت سَمْعَهُ الَّذِي يَسْمَعُ بِهِ، وَبَصَرَهُ الَّذِي يُبْصِرُ بِهِ، وَيَدَهُ الَّتِي يَبْطِشُ بِهَا، وَرِجْلَهُ الَّتِي يَمْشِي بِهَا، وَلَئِنْ سَأَلَنِي لَأُعْطِيَنَّهُ، وَلَئِنْ اسْتَعَاذَنِي لَأُعِيذَنَّهُ.” [ رَوَاهُ الْبُخَارِيُّ

 “…, wa la yazaalu ‘Abdi yataqarrabu ilayya bin nawafile hatta ahebahu, fa idha ahbabtuhu kunta Sam’ahul ladhi yasma’u behi, wa Basarahul ladhi yubsiru behi, wa Yadahul lati yabTeshu beha, wa Rejlahul lati yamshi beha, wa la in sa alani la a’Teyannahu, …”

“…My servant continues to draw near to Me with voluntary acts of worship so that I shall love him. When I love him, I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him…” Hadith Qudsi (Sahih al-Bukhari, 81:38:2)

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يُبَايِعُونَكَ إِنَّمَا يُبَايِعُونَ اللَّـهَ يَدُ اللَّـهِ فَوْقَ أَيْدِيهِمْ ۚ …﴿١٠

48:10 – “Innal ladheena yubayi’oonaka innama yubayi’on Allaha yadullahi fawqa aydeehim, …” (Surat al Fath)

“Indeed, those who give Baya (pledge allegiance) to you, [O Muhammad] – they are actually giving Baya (pledge allegiance) to Allah. The hand of Allah is over their hands… “(Holy Quran, Victory)

How that going to come- is by the heart to be open, the lights of the heart to be open, all the bad characteristics to be brought down so that these realities can begin to emanate from the holy hand.

We pray that Allah (AJ) dress us and bless us from these holy nights and begin to open from these realities more and more upon our hearts.

Subhana rabbika rabbal ‘izzati ‘amma yasifoon, wa salaamun ‘alal mursaleen, walhamdulillahi rabbil ‘aalameen.

Bi hurmati Muhammad al-Mustafa wa bi sirri surat al-Fatiha.
