Dangerous Days Ahead
Only Mecca, Medina and Sham Sharif (Damascus) will be Safe
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
Mawlana Shaykh is teaching and opening for us from his realities from his treasures that days of difficulty and days of confusion are in front of us and moving very quickly towards us. That confusion is from what we call dajjal, the antichrist; from extreme negativity and bad character, and as it begins quickly moving through the material world, Prophet (s) was teaching that 3 places would be safe: Mecca al-Mukarramah, Madina Munawwarah and Sham as-Shareef (Damascus). That in times of the antichrist these three places would be safe, and for believers to move towards those directions to be safe, and to be protected from the fitna and confusion of the antichrist and just very bad and very negative times that begin to surround mankind. And Mawlana shaykh’s teaching for understanding these realities is that it’s dressed from Holy Quran:“Bismillah ar-Rahman ar-Rahīm, atii-ullaaha wa’atii-‘urRasuula wa ‘ulil-‘amri min-kum.”
أَطِيعُواللَّه وَأَطِيعُوٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ…
4:59 – “…Atiullaha wa atiur Rasola wa Ulil amre minkum…“ (Surat an-Nisa)
bolded “… Obey Allah, obey the Messenger, and those in authority among you. ” (The Women, 4:59)
ATI’ ALLAH – Safety of Mecca
And from that reality all realities are opening; from that reality the secrets of tariqa are opening and from that reality is a safety for us towards our destination. It means the first level of the journey is directing towards Allah, and obedience to Allah. As we are moving and asking to leave shaytan and move towards rahman (mercy) so everything in our life we begin to see all of these things and say, “O my Lord! I’m moving from shaytan and moving towards the reality of rahman.” Then we begin to direct ourselves to love of Divine Presence, and as we are trying to correct ourselves and asking to leave satanic actions, and evilness and bad character. And Allah begins to inspire that as you are beginning to move towards Me, direct yourself to my Rasul. That if you want Me to be please with you, to be happy with you, to have that love and affection for you, then be with one whom I am already in love with. Not only someone who’s seeking Allah’s love, but whom Allah loves. All of the prophets were seeking Allah’s love, and He was already in love with Sayedina Muhammad (s). He is Habibullah, he is the beloved of Allah (swt), means the perfection of character. It is the love of Allah (swt) that when we clearly direct ourselves and it’s a pure and sincere love, “O my Lord! I am seeking refuge in You from all this craziness and difficulties!” Then He inspires that “direct yourself to Sayedina Muhammad (s)! He is going to perfect your love so that I will be happy with you love.”
It’s like a school. Direct yourself to love of Sayedina Muhammad (s), and he (as) will begin to perfect that love. He is going to teach us the character that Allah loves, teach us how to wash, how to pray, how to fast, how to read our holy book, how to perfect ourselves in his perfection. So obedience to Allah (swt) opens the door to obedience to Prophet (s) – if the love is sincere. That’s why the highest realities Allah (swt) are beginning to open. There are people who don‘t come to love of Sayedina Muhammad (s) and they’re happy with a love of Allah (swt) that satisfies themselves and they make for themselves an Allah that is from their own desires. But when that love of Sayedina Muhammad (s) is moving through the heart, it’s a grant from Divine Presence, and we are all her from that Divine grant – not our cleverness. Many people are even born into Islam and they don’t have that love of Sayedina Muhammad (s). It’s a grant from Divine. When You love me and accept me and I am granting you that, now go to the one who is going to perfect your love.
ATI’ur RASUL (saws) is Madina tul Munawara – the city of Lights
This is all for the safety of Last days and how we’re going to be safe. Many people going to think they love Allah (swt) and they are not in safety. Prophet (s) saying only Mecca, Medina, Sham as-Shareef going to be safe. Allah (swt) represents Mecca, Medina represents Prophet (s) and Sham as-Shareef represents the rijjal Allah, the saints; that the power and center of saints, the sultan of saints, its base is Shams (Damascus). So then Allah (swt) saying, “Come to Me! When the love is perfect I’m going to open into your heart and you’ll find Sayedina Muhammad (s).” And then we begin to seek out the reality of Sayedina Muhammad (s), begin to read about his life, begin to hear his salawats (praising of the Prophetic light), begin to make that salwat on our tongue, that love of Prophet (s), his government, his family, it’s all encompassing in the love of Prophet (s). That love of Prophet (s) means that Sayedina Muhammad (s) begins to accept our love and say, “if you really love me and want to obey Allah (swt), then follow the ulu’ amr, follow the people of authority so that you are under Allah’s training and satisfaction.”
So obedience to Allah (swt) opens the obedience and following of Sayedina Muhammad (s). Means now the Kabba is opening, that we are opening our heart because Mawlana is beginning to teach us that in time of panicking, it’s not that you can get on a plane and fly to Madina and you’ll be safe. If that was the case, then all of the people of Medina going to be safe and they would all be from the people of Sayedina Mahdi – it’s not true. Many people are going to perish and many that are not sincere will be gone and many that are sincere will appear. But Mawlana shaykh teaching us that before you can get up and run and sit in Mecca and wait for Sayedina Mahdi, or run to Medina or Shams waiting for Sayedina Mahdi, they’re beginning to teach us that you heart has to be in that condition. You don’t belong there if your heart is not from that reality. You are not from inhabitants of Mecca if your heart is not filled with love of Allah (swt). And you are not from Medina if your entire being is not for Sayedina Muhammad (s); everyday asking, “what can I do for You Sayyedi with my wealth, my life, my death, my family, with my entire being. It’s at your feet Ya Sayedi! Ya Rasulullah! What can I do for you to be of service, to be ghulam, servant, at you feet?”
Then that heart begins to be filled with Medina Munawwarah, because it’s not only the location that is important. It’s not the house that is important; it’s the one who occupies the house. What makes the city holy is not the city, but the one who comes to inhabit the city, that Allah’s creation comes and if there is a light in that heart it makes everywhere to be holy. We are not idol worshippers thinking a building is holy! The holy one, wherever he walks becomes holy. So they’re teaching us, “Are you running for a building, thinking you’re going to find safety in the building?! Then you are an idol worshipper. If you think you’re going to hold on to some rocks and stones and bricks they’re going to save you?! And that disaster is going to pass you by and you’re going to fool Sayedina Mahdi and you appeared?!”
They said, “No, what’s coming is worse than the plague of Sayedina Musa (as)!” That destruction is coming on the wings of angels. Destruction does not come from shaytan. This is other people’s belief because in their books they write about disaster and destruction as if it was from the devil, because the devil wants people to think he has power, saying “fear me! I bring destruction!” and he always shows their God in a pyjama and beaten – may the Divine forgive us all! And hanging on something and then whispering in their ears, “is that your God? Look how I beat him! I am the one who brings destruction!
”But Allah (swt) says, “No! He brings nothing but confusion to you!” Destruction is Allah’s might, qahar, Allah sends qahar and on the wings of angels and that destruction begins to move. Every microbe and every sickness is traveling on the wings of angels. Like a little soldier; Allah’s smallest soldiers. The Divine doesn’t need a tank and He doesn’t need a bullet to destroy anyone. It’s such a small microbe that it just flies with the angel and it hits and you see panicking and running and screaming. They say clouds of radiation are coming, run! Every radiation that going to kill you or make you sick is on a wing of an angel. It has an existence, and that existence is under the attribute of malik ul mulk (the Owner of All Sovereignty). There is nothing that is without the authority of Allah (swt). So malik ul mulk is determining that the game is over. If you are waiting for Sayedina Mahdi (as), then you must be from Kabba. Your heart must be from Kabba. This is the reality of saints. That’s why in all their poetry they would say, “O you who are going for pilgrimage, where are you going? Your Kabba is right here! You are directing yourself towards sticks and rocks and you don’t know where you’re going and what your intention is and what it is that you are moving towards.”
So saints were teaching us through all their writings that they are the living Kabba. Means that Allah (swt), the light of Abd’ullah is living within their heart and Allah (swt) makes all of creation to circumambulate their heart, so then they have a juzba, an attraction that begins to attract people from the reality of haqqiqat’ul Juzba. From soul to soul; they feel attracted to that energy and begin to move around their being because of the energy within their heart. Allah is saying, “There is a Kabba in Mecca, but My light cannot be contained in heavens or on earth but it can be contained in the heart of that believer.”
It means Sayedina Mahdi is coming with a different level of belief. All idol worshipping is going to go. You are running towards buildings? No. You must be around those whose hearts are like Kabba, so they can make your heart like Kabba, muwahid! That in their heart is only love of Allah (swt). “O our Lord! We are trying our best to obey,” and Allah saying “direct yourself to Sayedina Muhammad (s). You put your life, your death, your wealth, your family, everything at his feet. And if he says you sit and die then you sit and die, and if he signed off that nothing is going to touch you, then nothing is going to touch you!
If you know your account is correct, you have nothing to worry about. But if you have funny accounting then there is a concern in the heart, and everybody knows them self. Saints know about you, but they don’t say anything. But you know yourself and you know if your books are good, then the auditor comes and it’s no problem. But where the problem and panicking starts is when our books are not correct, there must be problems there and the auditor is going to find them and I’m going to face difficulty and purification through these difficulties that are coming. And they begin to inspire us that if you love Allah (swt), direct yourself towards Medina, to the love of Sayedina Muhammad (s). And if your love for of Sayedina Muhammad (s) is sincere, that “O my Lord! I’m loving u, I’m loving you Ya Rasulallah. My whole life is for you. Loving you, loving your family, loving your government, everything you loved, I love!”
Means that it’s not my place to judge anyone. Who Sayedina Muhammad (s) loved, we love. Whom are the blood and light of Sayedina Muhammad (s), we love. Then the Medina Munawwarah, the “City of Lights”, begins to open within the heart. Kabba becomes the container. The heart says this heart is now ready to contain my light once Allah (swt) gives permission. Means that the first door we are going through is towards Allah (swt). He begins to fix the heart; that this heart is sincere, and I’m going to make it like a Kabba, now accompany those who are like a Kabba! And when love of of Sayedina Muhammad (s) begins to enter and the entire being is lost in the love of Prophet (s), they can’t live without hearing salawats, they find no happiness without constantly remembering Prophet (s), and then every celebration is not a celebration without remembering and celebrating the life of of Sayedina Muhammad (s).
Then the city of light is opening in the Kabba, because what light is going to open in your heart? Allah’s light? There’s no way! If that light comes you’d be dead!
Ulu Amr Minkum (those in Authority) is Sham Sharif (Damascus)
Mawlana says not even a drop you could contain of that light. What light going to open is the light of of Sayedina Muhammad (s)! So your heart becomes Mecca, and filled with Medina, and the only way to achieve that is in the hands of ulu ‘amr, those who have authority. It means the saints who are eating and drinking from the hands of of Sayedina Muhammad (s) and his family, his ahlul bayt. If they are not eating and drinking from that hand, there is no power, no reality, and it’s all a facade and it burns away. But if they are taking from that they are real ulu ‘amr. And then those ulu ‘amr, we come sitting at their door. So Prophet (s) inspiring “find these saints!”
If you want to be from Madina, find these saints! Then we found them! Now the journey begins at their door back to that reality. So now we’re at the door to the ulu ‘amr saying, “Protect us from these antichrist, protect us from these confusions and difficulties that are coming, confusion has overtaken me!” And they teach us “learn how to enter our heart.” You will find no safety unless it’s in their heart, because we’ve said their heart is Mecca! Their heart is Medina, and they are the reality of Sham as-Shareef. All saints are based out of Sham, when you see them this is just an imitation of their being, but their reality is based out of Damascus. So at their door their saying, “if you want to be safe, then enter into our heart.” So then we begin to concentrate, meditate on moving into their heart. There is nothing that will be protected except the heart of these saints.
So then we begin to occupy ourselves with their love; that when we’re praying, fasting, eating and drinking we are constantly thinking of them, asking that they dress us and bless us and fill us with that light. Mawlana Shaykh teaching for us it’s like you have the best laptop available, worth thousands of dollars, but if you don’t have a wi-fi connection, that laptop is completely useless. It may be the best and the latest package, but unless it has an ability to log on and receive a connection, there is no connection – it’s just a piece of equipment. So we are at their door, we have all our equipment, we have that love, now we are entering into that reality and their wi-fi begins to send that which we don’t have. And as we’re moving in that energy, they begin to take us to their connection to the heart of Sayedina Muhammad (s), and only through their door can you enter into the heart of Sayedina Muhammad (s), and only thru the heart of Prophet (s) can you witness the magnificence and munificence of Allah’s light. It’s all through the heart of Prophet (s).
So we pray in these days of panicking, where am I going to run and where am I going to hide? There is no where that is going to be safe. It’s finished. Only safety is in their heart. With love for them that we move into their heart and they begin to dress our light from their reality, and as their reality begins to dress us, bless us and move us into the presence of Prophet (s), then the real ahlul bayt, they are the real ahlul bayt of light and of blood, that they received their certificate in the presence of Sayedina Muhammad (s). It means that they’re able to bring that light and bring people to the presence of Sayedina Muhammad (s), and at that time that audience is from soul to soul, and Prophet (s) begins to send his light, and that light begins to dress those students. That light is the only light that perfects us, and that light is the only light that protects us.
Then as move deeper in that ocean, Mawlana Shaykh teaching that as you are moving into that perfected light of Sayedina Muhammad (s), anything that is lacking in that perfection will be burned off. Any imperfection, even if it reaches up to hear (points to near end of his finger) what’s left will be purified until that perfection is achieved because it’s not perfecting. It means that anything that is completed in the light of Sayedina Muhammad (s) is protected. How Allah is going to punish the light of Sayedina Muhammad (s)? If Sayedina Muhammad (s) is signing that “I’m going to put my light into that being” – Allah (swt) says” if they are oppressors to themselves and they come to you, ya Rasulullah and ask forgiveness, My forgiveness is always stamped with you. My hand is upon your hand.”
وَلَوْ أَنَّهُمْ إِذ ظَّلَمُوا أَنفُسَهُمْ جَاءُوكَ فَاسْتَغْفَرُوا اللَّـهَ وَاسْتَغْفَرَ لَهُمُ الرَّسُولُ لَوَجَدُوا اللَّـهَ تَوَّابًا رَّحِيمًا ٦٤
4:64 – … wa law annahum idh dhalamoo anfusahum jaooka fastaghfaro Allaha wastaghfara lahumur Rasolu lawajado Allaha tawwaban raheema. ” (Surat An Nisa)
“…And if, when they had wronged themselves, they had but come unto thee and asked forgiveness of Allah, and asked forgiveness of the messenger, they would have found Allah Forgiving, Merciful.” (The Women 4: 64)
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)
So then saints are dressing us, testing us, and perfecting us, as we enter into their heart and move into the presence of Sayedina Muhammad (s), if that light dressing us, then Allah’s (swt) light is already blessing us. And if that blessing comes, there is nothing that can touch that person – in accordance with what Allah (swt) wants. Whatever Allah (swt) wants is going to happen. And if Allah (swt) doesn’t want it, nothing is going to happen. If everything is blown up, and that servant under permission from Allah (swt) is just making prostration, nothing will happen. Everything will burn except that servant. It’s in Allah’s (swt) hands. These are the days of faith, as we said before about chapter 2 that Sultan ul Awliya was opening, from action now is coming the world of faith. We can talk all we want, but now becomes the days that saying doesn’t mean anything, but the action and the ocean of faith is going to be visible. We pray that we move into that ocean, that we are protected by that ocean, that we move into that light and into that love, and into that reality that saints bless us and protect us and bring us into the heart of Sayedina Muhammad (s), that Prophet (s) be happy and satisfied, and present us to Allah’s Divinely Presence. Bi-hurmatil Mustafa, wa bi-sirr as-Suratul Fatiha.
