Sunnah Part 3 – The Sunnah of Sleeping,

Defending against jinns,Demons Unknown Beings, Sleep Paralysis

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

“Man ahya Sunnati faqad ahabanee, wa man ahabanee, kana ma’iya fil jannah.”  
Who revives my sunnah loves me, and who really loves me will be with me in Paradise.” Prophet Muhammad (saws)

Asking always to be nothing and enter Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s oceans of Rahma and Mercy and the Grace and blessings of Allah (Azza wa Jal) to be upon us all inshaAllah.

We are talking about the energy and the subjects of energy and the power of the holy Sunnah (the way of Prophet Muhammad (s). One important one that people ask, is about night time, because of the effect of negative energy at night. It affects people’s energy, it affects people’s physicality and it affects people’s dreams. Many people say they have attacks at night. They have night terror, they have horrific dreams and all sorts of attacks. Means it is a time for us that we should understand when we are most vulnerable. When you are lying down and not defending yourself, we must know that there are many beings all around us. This space we live in is not empty and anybody who wants proof of that, they should look into an electron microscope. They took a cup of water and looked inside the water with the electron microscope and they found so many levels of creation living in it. And when they looked at that creation again, they saw living things upon those living things. It means that there must be life everywhere. There must be positive energy and negative energy

Make Wudu (ablution) before you go to Bed

Alhamdulillah from Mawlana Shaykh Hisham’s teaching for us which is all from Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, ati ullah ati ar Rasola wa ulul amri minkum.

أَطِيعُواللَّه وَأَطِيعُوٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ…
4:59 – “…Atiullaha wa atiur Rasola wa Ulil amre minkum… (Surat an-Nisa)
“… Obey Allah, obey the Messenger, and those in authority among you. ” (The Women, 4:59)

What Allah (Azza wa Jal) gave to and wanted Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) to perfect Mankind and that perfection is running within the hands of ulul amr and the perfected guides. What they taught for us is that from the realities of sleeping, that when you are about to go to bed, that you go with wudu (ablution). That you wash before you go to sleep, make sure your private parts are washed and you complete your wudu. We talked before that you pray the prayer of wudu, the two cycles of wudu without speaking anything and you are sealing your energy. You finish all your washing, go and pray your two rak’ats (cycles) and seal yourself.

At that time you can recite four surat al Falaq, three Surat Ikhlas, Surat an-Naas and two Surat al-Ikhlas and blow it upon yourself.
Qul a’udhu bi rabbil falaq (Say; I seek refuge in the Lord of the Daybreak) {Shaykh blows on his hands and around him}, Qul a’udhu bi rabbin naas (Say; I seek refuge in the Lord of Mankind) and putting that light upon yourself {Shaykh blows on his palms, and lightly rubs his hands over face and beard}. Qul huwallahu ahad (Say He is Allah, the One and Only) {Shaykh blows upon the palm of his hands and around him}, and asking Allah to protect you while you sleep

To Read before Sleep for protection:

4X Surat al Falaq (Holy Quran Ch. 113),
3x Surat an Nas (Ch. 114)
2X Surat al Ikhlas (Ch. 112)

The Sunnah is to be Covered When you sleep

When you are going into bed, it is the Sunnah to be covered. We talked before about the energy that when you expose your body, you are exposing it to every type of energy. All these beings want to touch that human flesh, they want the access to that energy that they don’t have access to. By keeping yourself covered with a long pajama for men and a T-shirt to cover the places of hawa and the places of the body that should not be exposed. And by having ayat al Qur’an (verses of holy Quran) upon themselves and asking from Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem and Ayatul Kursi [Quran 2:255] and the names of pious people and having good things around their home. As soon as they go and lie down and wanting to go to sleep, they are asking to be protected.

That to keep the head covered because this is the timsleep master full pajamas with long hat - sunnahe when the most attacks come, when you sleep. Then your Sunnah is while you are awake as well as while you are sleeping. So it means you try to get a hat that you can pull over which does not keep slipping so that it does not keep popping off as you are sleeping so a ski hat or toque or a knitted hat or whatever you can put over your head and it’s secure and your head which is the crown of Creation is guarded.

If you look back forty or fifty years ago at all the pictures of sleeping, everybody covered while sleeping. They have pictures of little children even in cartoons that they had long hats, they had a sleep hats with a little tail. They had long underwear  that were like long-johns which covered their entire body because they understood that reality. It is only a new concept where people sleep without any clothing and they go into the bed. Therefore they have many attacks, from the jinn, different nightmares and difficulty coming at night.

Sleep on your Back, Let the Force field of the Heart Protect You

light of a man - atoms - energy, waves of light aroundThe defense that Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) brought for us was the perfection. That make your wudu, pray your Salat al-Wudu, recite Holy Qur’an upon yourself and blow that light upon yourself and as soon as you go to sleep you have something to cover your head. Then, when you sleep get into the practice of sleeping on your backside because this is all about energy that Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) was bringing for us. That the shayateen (devils) are scared of approaching insaan (human being) from the front because of the energy to the heart.

Heart attraction waves on oceanThe heart is a tremendous protection for the human beings because this is where the light of the Divine is emanating. All the Zikr, the prayer, every good action, charity, everything is enforcing the light within the heart of the human being. So the heart is the force field. When you understand that then as you sleep on your back, you realize there is a shield that your heart is emitting over you and defending you [Shaykh demonstrates a fan of light emitting from the heart].

As long as we keep that understanding that the heart is there to defend. Then Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) described that when you are sleeping it is most preferable to sleep on your back. And if you have to move to your side, then again this is based on energy, as soon as you sleep you go to your right side. When sleeping on your right side you see again the heart is making a shield of protection because your heart is up. [Shaykh demonstrates a fan of light coming across from the left side to the right side of the body]. It’s good for the heart, it is good for the conditioning of the heart, it is not putting stress upon the heart, and it is providing a shield of energy that encompasses all your body.

Sleeping on the Left side & on the Stomach Weakens Your Energy/Protection

The disliked position is if you go now and roll over to your left side. As soon as you move to the left what happens is that the heart is in duress because your weight from your body is being pushed upon the heart, the shield of protection is not there. There is nothing now defending you [Shaykh indicates overview of the body], the heart’s shield of protection is not there. Many people who are sensitive to energy become very uncomfortable when they sleep on their left.

The more you are aware of energy, the more you practice energy, the more you understand that this is all from the realities of the Malakoot (heavenly realm). Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) came to perfect…

إِنَّمَا بُعِثْتُ لِأُ تَمِّمَ مَكَارِمَ الْأَخْلاقِ‎‎
“Innama bu’istu le Utammima makarimal Akhlaq.”

I was sent to perfect your manners.” Prophet Muhammad (saws)

PrMadina - Muhammad RasolAllah & doves, Madina, peaceophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) came to perfect but not necessarily the body. The body is going to be here for for sixty or seventy years and go back into the grave. These teachings of the body were to perfect the soul, the inhabitant, the precious one from Paradise that is inside, it needs the body to understand these realities because it is the one suffering. What Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) brought were the rules to save the soul inside.

The one who is jahl (ignorant) and doesn’t understand, as soon as they sleep like this (left side) their soul is going to be attacked. The heart is going to be attacked and that insaan (human) will be under attack because always visualize there are thousands of ifrit. There are very few people that have the ability, with their energy, with their salah, with their namaz (daily prayer) who will release tremendous energy that purifies that space. Most [people] don’t have that energy and they can barely lift themselves in their salah, in their `amal and actions.

Close Your Windows/Blinds at Night

3 Gargoyles in Paris, devil, satan -Jul-5-2012


It means that negative energy is everywhere. It comes through the television, it comes through the music, it comes through the windows. Even Grandshaykh said that at Maghrib time close the windows, close the shades on your windows because of Shaytan. If you think you have a protection within your house because you put Ayat al-Qursi, you have Qur’an and salawaat playing in the house, you have made and fortified your house like a fortress. So the Shaytan won’t be coming but they become active at Maghrib time. The kids were watching a cartoon and the gargoyle came off the buildings. At five o’clock the gargoyles were coming alive and I was saying, “Look, look, look that’s what baba (father) teaches?”

You Give permission to Shayateen (devils) to Come to Your House

vampiresThat at Maghrib time these shayateen become active. When they become active means they are going into the house of believers. When you leave the window open, it is as if it’s an opening for them that’s inviting them. By closing the window is a hijab (veil) that they don’t have permission to break that hijab.

They teach you in movies all of the shaytanic rules. So what are the most popular movies now? These vampires and young girls. As soon as the vampire wants to come into the house, they are teaching you even their adab (manners). That the vampire wants to come into the house and the girl says, “Come on in,” and he says, “No, you have to invite me in!” He is teaching what Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) brought almost 1500 years ago; that we are under the power of audhu billahi min ash Shaytani rajeem (I seek refuge in Allah, from Satan the Rejected one.)

It means that Shaytan knows that no, no you are protected. You have to break your audhu and invite me into your home. They teaching that in the movies, that when you see the vampire you have to invite him in. And the greatness of what Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and what he brought  for us that to say Audhu billah, live your live in audhu billahi [min-ash Shaytani rajeem], seeking refuge from anything shaytanic so that you will be under the rahma of Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem.

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 

The Devils can send difficulties from far

So even the windows to be closed at night so that evilness doesn’t come in. Even you have all your protection, as soon as you open your windows, from a distance, they have no permission to come in, but their nazar (gaze) from a distance can strike through the window. So they are like shooting arrows. They don’t have permission to come in but from a distance they can look through the window and begin to shoot all sorts of difficulty. You feel that difficulty and then you feel the arguments begin in the home. Every type of fitna and anger and aggression begins to start around Maghrib time.

It means all of what Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) brought and what the real ulul amr who not only translate the Hadith but they understood the reality of the Hadith and they are able to talk to you in very basic simple English. That is the miraculous nature of the Turuq (Islamic spiritual paths), They can take very complicated realities and talk in a way that five or six-year-old kids can understand!

Devil standing over a child sleeping on stomachIt means to protect the home from negative energy. Then when you are sleeping and you realize that if you sleep on your left, you will put duress upon the heart. It’s not going to have a shield of protection. The worst position is if you sleep on your stomach. That is a complete inviting of negative energy. As soon as you sleep on your stomach, the most vulnerable part of your body is exposed to the air.  And every type of negativity is entering in now through the rear end. As they enter in, they increase the negativity, increase the anger, increase every horrific characteristic into insaan which is coming through the nighttime visitations.

Again the greatness of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) was to teach about these energies and teach the realities about the jinn. So when you are watching YouTube and all the television shows that the children are watching alien abductions. What alien abductions? These are the jinn! They are not coming with a UFO ship from somewhere else, they are right there in your room. That is why they are molesting you, abusing you and beating you. Everything that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) brought was this. There are no aliens coming on a ship from a distant planet, they are right there in the room. Protect yourself against the unseen creations of Allah (Azza wa Jal). That protection is to wash, to keep the wudu, to keep yourself clothed when you are sleeping, sleep on your back and sleep on your right. 

Constantly make salawaat (Praise upon Prophet (s) to Protect Yourself

And constantly be in the practice of making salawaat on Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). So when you feel an attack coming, something that has grabbed you or something trying to grab you, it is second nature to call upon Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) by saying, allahumma salle `ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa `ala aali Sayyidina Muhammad.Salawat - dorod with Madina

اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ، وَعَلَى آلِ سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ وَ سَلِّمْ
Allahumma salli ‘ala Sayyidina Muhammadin wa ‘ala aali  Sayyidina Muhammadin wa Sallim.

O Allah! Send Peace and blessings upon Muhammad and upon the Family of Muhammad (Peace be Upon him)

It has in it the Zikr of Allah (Azza wa Jal) and the praising upon Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). So you have double protection. You have Allah (Azza wa Jal) ‘s attention with His most beloved. You get the nazar (gaze) of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) upon you and Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) comes to give back your greeting and salutation, that is when the Haqq comes and every falsehood has to leave that environment and in that room.

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)

But it has to be second nature. Otherwise people say they have an attack all night long and it’s not coming to them what to say. That is why Awliya (saints) are coming into our life to remind that to be in the practice of constant darood shareef because that is praising upon Allah (Azza wa Jal) and mentioning His most beloved Creation whom Allah (Azza wa Jal) loves dearly, Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). By making it second nature then you are constantly in darood shareef. Then keeping the head covered, sleeping on the back and not sleeping on the stomach where every negativity enters the body.

We pray that Allah (Azza wa Jal) gives us more understanding from the Malakoot and what they call these energies and these realities. Especially with the world of the unseen that people are calling the alien and alien abduction. No, no this is the world of the jinn, they are all around us. And to become familiar and to understand that Creation is part of the faith. To believe in the Unseen, to believe in angels, to believe in these things from Malakoot and from a dimension that we don’t see.

Subhaana rabbika rabbil izzati `amma yasifoon wa salaamun `alal mursaleen walhamdulillahi rabbil aalameen.
