The Face of the Shaykh Has Authority and Power
From the Realities of Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani (ق) 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
Everything is based on Obedience to Allah (AJ), Rasulallah, and Those in Authority
Alhamdulillah for Mawlana Shaykh’s teaching as a reminder that everything is in that reality of “Ati ullah ati ar rasul wa ulil amri minkum”, ‘Obey Allah, Obey the Messenger, and those in authority among you’.
﴿٥٩﴾ …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)
Everything is based on obedience to Allah (AJ), obedience to the Prophetic Reality, and to follow the way of the ulil amr. It means there is a secret in that three. So it means to base our life off that reality that there is always going to be a secret in this number three.
Obedience to Allah is the Secret of the Essence
That obedience to Allah (AJ) is like the secret of the Essence, the ultimate goal of the reality of the seeker is to reach to the obedience of Allah (AJ). For us to visualize like an Essence, like the innermost secret of a room. Allah (AJ) knows that that is going to be difficult for us, just to hit right into that bullseye, so He gives for us that ati ar rasul ﷺ .
Obey Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, make your life to follow the way of Prophet ﷺ, the way of love, patience, tolerance, and khuluq ul azheem, the best of character.
﴾وَإِنَّكَ لَعَلَىٰ خُلُقٍ عَظِيمٍ ﴿٤
8:4 – “Wa innaka la’ala khuluqin ‘azheem.” (Surat Al-Qalam)
“Truly, You (O Muhammad ﷺ!) are of a magnificent character.” (The Pen, 68:4)
Learn knowledge from Shaykhs with the best of Character
That is the litmus test because now we are bombarded with internet shaykhs, they are everywhere. Where before you had to travel long distance, now you just sit on your laptop and you can go to one hundred shaykhs in one day, watch all these different videos. Awliyaullah (saints) come into our life and teach that, the most important character is khuluq. That they are inheriting from the ‘best of character’. If whatever knowledge is coming is not based on character, run from it. It doesn’t mean anything. It means you are being fed something in a dangerous cup. The uloom (knowledge) can be amazing, the qira’at (recitation) can be astonishing. So it means then they want us to understand: any knowledge, if not based on good character, it means we observe with our heart. When we see the character is good, the akhlaq (character) is good, the understanding, the muhabbat (love) is good, then that is a fountain to drink from.
Obedience to Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is like a Room
So ati ar rasul ﷺ (obedience to Messenger) becomes now like a room for us; that we want to be in that room and we want to find the secret that Allah (AJ) has for us. That is our goal. “I want the room of Prophet ﷺ.” Inside that room, like a video game that you are so familiar with, it is the same concept. When they make the video game they make just a room, and just change the scenario, you are still in the same place. That is why someday you will wake up and realize, wow that was really crazy to play this game for so long. You never left the room! It is just one picture of a room and you are running around thinking you are going to different levels, it is still the same room just painted with different scenarios. Allah (AJ) says: the real game you should be playing is to reach to this reality. Find a room in which Prophet ﷺ is there.[Q]
Find the association in which Prophet ﷺ is there. In that association, there is going to be a secret Essence of Allah (AJ). If they are from the Ahbab an Nabi ﷺ, the lovers of Prophet ﷺ, that through their character known and unknown, is based on the love of Prophet ﷺ. This means they mention Prophet ﷺ often, they praise upon Prophet ﷺ often, they talk about Prophet ﷺ in everything, they don’t talk on behalf of Allah (AJ).
The Nafs (Ego) Doesn’t Accept Authority, so Bring the Ego Down
There is a bad character that always wants to go over you. We said before somebody would sit with us and say, “Mawlana, when I am sitting and closing my eyes…” How is he talking in Mawlana’s presence? “Oh Mawlana, how am I going to connect my heart to Sayyidina Mahdi (as)?” You think O my God how did this person ask that in front of Mawlana? Mawlana looked at that person… “Hmm connect to Sayyidina Mahdi (as)? So why you have to do that? Why don’t you go to straight to Prophet ﷺ?” And then he thought a little bit longer, “Why do you even have to do that? Why don’t you go just directly to Allah (AJ)? You don’t need to ask us, we are small people, just you go directly to Allah (AJ).”
It means this character of thinking oneself high and ‘I deal with the boss’ this was the character of Shaytan. When Allah (AJ) said, “Make sujood.” This means accept the Khalifah, accept Sayyidina Adam he is My Khalifa, bow down, pay your ihtiram and your respect.’ [Pic]
﴾وَإِذْ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلْمَلاَئِكَةِ إِنِّي جَاعِلٌ فِي الأَرْضِ خَلِيفَةً قَالُواْ أَتَجْعَلُ فِيهَا مَن يُفْسِدُ فِيهَا وَيَسْفِكُ الدِّمَاء وَنَحْنُ نُسَبِّحُ بِحَمْدِكَ وَنُقَدِّسُ لَكَ قَالَ إِنِّي أَعْلَمُ مَا لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ ﴿٣٠
2:30 – “Wa idh qala rabbuka lil Malayikati innee ja’ilun fil ardi khaleefatan, qaloo ataj’alu feeha man yufsidu feeha wa yasfikud dima a wa nahnu nusabbihu bihamdika wa nuqaddisu laka, Qala innee a’lamu ma la ta’lamon.” (Surat Al-Baqarah)
“And [mention, O Muhammad], when your Lord said to the angels, “Indeed, I will make upon the earth a Deputy/Representative.” They [angels] said, “Will You place upon it one who causes corruption/mischief therein and shed blood, while we praise and glorify You?” Allah said, “Indeed, I know that which you do not know.” (The Cow, 2:30)
﴾وَإِذْ قُلْنَا لِلْمَلَائِكَةِ اسْجُدُوا لِآدَمَ فَسَجَدُوا إِلَّا إِبْلِيسَ ﴿٣٤
2:34 – “Wa idh qulna lil malayikati osjudo li Adama fasajado illa ibleesa…” (Surat Al-Baqarah)
“And [mention] when We said to the angels, ‘Bow Down to Adam’; so they prostrated, except for Iblis…” (The Cow, 2:34)
The character of Shaitan said, “No way, there is no way I am going to accept him between me and You.” So it means there is always an egoism in the character that never wants to accept an authority, especially an authority that is in the presence of that authority. It is easier to say, “No, no, I don’t care for your authority, I am going to make my authority with that one 4,000 miles away.” The trick that you play with yourself is that the one 4,000 miles away is not going to test you everyday. So it means you are telling yourself, “I don’t have to listen to anyone, I don’t have to follow anyone.” [Pic]
Prophet ﷺ is Amongst You with his Awliya in 124,000 Rooms
But why Allah (AJ) has 124,000 rooms on this Earth. 124,000 awliyaullah between men and women? They are rooms of Prophet ﷺ where Allah (AJ) describes in Holy Qur’an that, “Feekum, Prophet ﷺ is amongst you.”
﴾كَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا فِيكُمْ رَسُولًا مِّنكُمْ يَتْلُو عَلَيْكُمْ آيَاتِنَا وَيُزَكِّيكُمْ وَيُعَلِّمُكُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَيُعَلِّمُكُم مَّا لَمْ تَكُونُوا تَعْلَمُونَ ﴿١٥١
2:151 – “Kama arsalna feekum Rasulam minkum yatlo ‘Alaykum ayatina wa yuzakkeekum wa yu’Allimukumul kitaba walhikmata wa yu’Allimukum ma lam takono ta’Alamon.” (Surat Al-Baqarah)
“Just as We have sent among (within) you a messenger of your own, reciting to you Our Signs, and purifying you, and teaching you the Book/Scripture (Quran) and Wisdom, and teaching you New Knowledge, that which you did not know.” (The Cow, 2:151)
Look from the World of Light. When Allah (AJ), with no time, is saying that, “Prophet ﷺ is amongst you,” then He must not be talking about the form because Allah (AJ) has no time and Allah (AJ), God forbid, makes no understandings of mistakes. So When Allah (AJ) says, “Prophet ﷺ is amongst you,” why are they reading Qur’an as if it was a story from something old? Qur’an is beyond alive, it is not even created. But it must be relevant at every second, at every moment. So then Allah (AJ) is giving us an isharat (sign) that Prophet`s ﷺ Light is all around you and those Ahbab, lovers, and ashiqeen are overflowing fountains of love of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, and wherever they are, is the Light of Prophet ﷺ. There are 124,000 of those rooms are on this Earth. They carry the love of Prophet ﷺ. As a result, there is a secret within their heart from the Essence of Allah (AJ). [Q]
Each Room has a Face that Attracts you
Then for the understanding, to reach that room there is the surat, there is a face. There is a face that attracts you to that room otherwise how would you find that room? Just by random chance? That you say ya Rabbi guide me and I am going to walk down that street and find that room? No, Allah (AJ) says: I will make it very easy ‘ati ullah’ is a secret within their heart, wa ‘ati ar rasul’ is whom they are, wa ‘ulil amri minkum’ search these ulil amr. Make a life in which you are looking for these ‘Men of Authority’. Men as in masculine, it can be women; men whom Allah (AJ) gives their isharat, gives their guidance, they are the ‘People of Authority’.
…أَطِيعُواللَّه وَأَطِيعُوٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ ﴿٥٩﴾
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)
Muhammadan Rooms have Permission to Show their Face
So our life was to find these ulil amr. And their characteristic of the room that they carry, is the characteristic and the love of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. This means then Allah (AJ) makes for them: propagate your face, put your face out. They have been given permission by Prophet ﷺ. If you don’t have permission from Prophet ﷺ and you put your face out, you become dead and sick, because if people look at your face too much calamity will visit you, hardship will visit you, disease will be upon you. Because that face is going to attract that Light.
So it means some of these 124,000 have an authority that: propagate your face. As soon as your face goes out, it will attract; it will attract those people to that reality. If they come to that face and they come to that presence, they become aware of that presence. Allah (AJ) dresses their being to enter into that room. So by the face we were attracted, it means we found them. The face is a symbol for finding, and Allah (AJ) gives an honour and majesty that: “Everything perishes but the holy face, WajhAllah Karim.”
﴾كُلُّ شَيْءٍ هَالِكٌ إِلَّا وَجْهَهُ لَهُ الْحُكْمُ وَإِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ ﴿٨٨…
28:88 – “…kullu shayin halikun illa wajha hu la hul hukmu wa ilayhi turja’oon.” (Surat Al-Qasas)
“…Everything (that exists) will perish except His holy Face. To Him belongs the Command, and to Him you will be returned.” (The Stories, 28:88)
Shaykh is given Authority and Permission to Teach
So it means that when Allah (AJ) gives an order to them, “Propagate your face,” because this is an isharat. What is the purpose of giving somebody isharat if he sits by himself next to a tree? He has been given permission, he has been given that, “You have been raised by us, you know how to be independent.” You are not going to go out and start something and everyday come back to the shaykh and say, “Give me five dollars, can I have ten dollars now, can I have this now, can I have that now?” They say, “Wait, that is what the kids did.” Kids have to keep going back to baba (father).
The man whom the shaykh raised, they say to him, “You are now ready, you go and propagate your face and whomever sees your face will come to that guidance. You have your own phone number, you have your own website, you have all your own, be independent,” and you will be given by Prophet ﷺ a means in which to reach to people. And that is the Rahma of Allah (AJ). Why the different madhabs (schools of thought)? Based on where they were, it was a mercy from Allah (AJ). If everybody had to have the madhab of Egypt but they may be in the subcontinent and things were not relevant to them.
Authorized Shaykh works Independently and has His Own Mission
This means it is a Rahmah (mercy) when Allah (AJ) has these different flavours of an approach to Prophet ﷺ. One of those rooms may speak in a way that is relevant to your life and to your culture. Maybe they are serving in a certain way which is attracted to you, and that brings you into that reality. So it’s not one way. It is not all vanilla. That is why the mind doesn’t understand, “Why is he operating differently? Why is everything different?” All of it is a rahmah from Prophet ﷺ. That that room that you operate, it has its own phone number, has its own websites, has its own responsibility, has its own mission from Prophet ﷺ that, “You are to do and establish this.” And the shaykhs guided them, “Establish that,” and as a result you’re like the face that will bring people to that room. Which room? The love of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ!
7 Divinely Attributes Dress the Seven Opening of the Holy Face
As sami’ (All-Hearing) al Basir (All-Seeing) Dress the Ears
Why Allah (AJ) put an emphasis on the face? It means the face of these servants is from the Oceans of Hayat. We described before they inherit, they inherit from the two openings of the ears, as sami (All-Hearing) al basir (All-Seeing). Allah’s (AJ) Essences dress the face, because the face they look at, is a reflection of the face that they look at, is a reflection to the face they look at, all the way to the Sultan who looks directly into the real face of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. From that face of Prophet ﷺ looks to the reality of Allah (AJ): wajhAllah. That face of Prophet ﷺ is Sami al Basir, it takes from the hearing and from the seeing. So all the reality of hearing and seeing is being dressed upon that reality of Prophet ﷺ. [Pic]
﴾كُلُّ مَنْ عَلَيْهَا فَانٍ ﴿٢٦﴾ وَيَبْقَىٰ وَجْهُ رَبِّكَ ذُو الْجَلَالِ وَالْإِكْرَامِ ﴿٢٧
55:26-27 – “Kullu man ‘alayha fanin.(26) Wa yabqa wajhu Rabbika dhul jalali wal ikram. (27)” (Surah Rahman)
“All that is on earth will perish: (26) And there will remain (for ever) the holy Face of your Lord, Owner of Majesty, Bounty and Honor.” (Holy Quran, The Beneficent 55: 1-3)
Al ‘Aleem (The All Knower) is Dressing the holy Tongue
From the tongue, Siffat al ‘Alim (attribute of All knowing). So when that face is looking to that face, these are Lights and Siffat of Allah (AJ) dressing upon their face. This is a description; these rooms are not random rooms, these are not something small. Most people can’t even explain that reality. When they want to explain the reality, they want you to understand that face in there is an activated face, and by order of Prophet ﷺ it is operating the way it has to operate, independent. It has its own phone number, it has its own website, it has its own books, has its own knowledges all from his Sultan, from his shaykh. It has from al Alim al Qadir.This means from the Siffat of Allah’s (AJ) Ancient Knowledges, Alim. Al ‘Alim is dressing their tongue. [P]
Siffat al Qadir (All Powerful) Dresses the Breath
Allah (AJ) is dressing upon their breath Siffat al Qadir. Their breath is Allah’s (AJ) Qudrah, they breathe with power upon their soul. We said many times before, that they can’t even describe. In their breath they can breathe all the souls of everyone in their association. Because you think from the World of Form. Think from the World of Light. Let’s say there is a Light here, in one instant that Light can pull everybody’s light into it with its nafas, in its breath, it will clean all the imperfections, dress from whatever Allah (AJ) is dressing, Prophet ﷺ is dressing, and awliyaullah are dressing upon their soul and breathe it back out within an instant, in a fraction of a second. Because we think physical, we think, “O what is happening in these associations?” The power that Allah (AJ) gives the tongue is dressed from the power of Allah’s (AJ) Ancient Knowledge. Their breath from Allah’s (AJ) Qudrah and Power. That they have power within their breath and a might that moves around and it doesn’t have to be locked into this room; whoever is looking to their face, they are being dressed by that reality.
Ar Rahman – Nur (Light) Dresses the Right Eye
So Alim al Qadir, wan Nur al Hayy. Nur al Hayy, the right eye is Nur (light) and the left eye is Hayy (ever living). From their right eye comes a Nur, from their left eye comes Bahrul Hayat (ocean of ever-living). Anyone deficient in Light that sits with them, from their right eye comes a light from the Nur. That Nur is from Siffat ar Rahman. In other talks we described Allah (AJ) dressed them with Bismillah ir Rahman ar Rahim. In Siffat ar Rahman because Rahman ends with the noon. This Rahim? Noon means this is the secret of the whole World of Form and Light. From their right eye, a Nur comes out. Anyone deficient in their Light because of their hub dunya, will be revitalized with that Light.
Dajjal Wants to Take Away the Light of Believers
That is why the Dajjal has an eye poked out. The Antichrist – we don’t believe in the Anti-Christ – we believe in the person of deception, because it is not about Christ only. That every Dajjal that comes, his eye is missing. Every show shows his eye is missing and every television has his eye, every satellite has his eye, every eye is everywhere. Why is it missing? To show that, “I have no light for akhirah (hereafter), I am only the one who brings hayat ad dunya (life of material world). I have nothing to do, I am cut from akhirah. The whole responsibility of Dajjal is to take the lights and hope of akhirah away and fill them with the love of dunya.”
Followers of Dajjal take Bayah (Initiation)
That is why all of Dajjal’s ulama’(scholars)…the singers, the movie stars, the actresses, those are his scholars, they go and propagate “There is nothing in the Heavens for you, live life to your fullest.” So as we know that Dajjal is active, you don’t think Allah (AJ) is caring for Ummat an Nabi (Nation of Prophet ﷺ? Must be. But his (Dajjal’s) activity seems to be much more powerful. He puts concerts with hundreds of thousands of people – we were talking the other night – hundreds of thousands come to their concerts and one of their ulama gets up and starts singing. Singing songs that dress them and possess them, and then keep putting their hand up in the middle of the event to take bayah (pledge allegiance). This is an initiation. When they are putting their hand up and the other one puts his hand up, he is agreeing to take their hand. So we sit back and we watch and say, “Look what the Shaytans are doing? They are having initiations, they are giving baya to everybody.” Astaghfirullah they are all over, every television show in the millions.
The People of Light, they are sitting with ten people, fifty people, hundred people; the few that will represent the many, but Allah (AJ) didn’t leave this Nation to be empty without anything. So then they are describing that, “This face, with this Nur, their Light comes from the right eye is a Nur that dresses anything that sees it, and from their left eye bahrul hayat”.
Ar Raheem – Hay (The Ever-Living) Dresses The Left Eye
True Shaykhs Revive the Hearts
From their left eyes comes Al Hay, bahrul Hayat (ocean of ever-living) means they can…Muhyil qulubi, revive the hearts as these salawats that we are reciting, because feekum (within you). Why are they teaching about Prophet ﷺ? Because they are the inheritors of Prophet ﷺ. So if you don’t know the reality of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, you are definitely not going to know the reality of who awlilya (saints) are.So when they teach you that Prophet ﷺ …in the salawats (praisings) every single one of these ulama are writing these salawats, they are ‘muhyil qulub wa mahidh dhunubi’, “The reviver of the hearts and the destroyer of sins.”
يَا مُحْيِي الْقُلُوْبِ، سَلَّامْ عَلَيك يَا مَاحِي الذِّنُوْبِ ، سَلَّامْ عَلَيك
Ya Muhyil qulubi, Salaam ‘Alayk Ya Mahidh dhunubi, Salaam ‘Alayk
O the reviver of the hearts, O the eraser of the sins, Peace be upon you
From their left eye, a Light goes out and hits everybody and they can revive a dead heart. A heart that feels that it has no hope, has no purpose, has no understanding. In one association they can revitalize all the Light, recharge all the souls, recharge and repump the heart, recalibrate the heart back into the love of Allah (AJ), and the love of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. And from that face and those seven points, they are taking from their shaykhs.
The Shaykh is a Reflection of the Muhammadan Reality
So what they take from their shaykh is not comparable with what you think you are taking from their shaykh. That’s why they say, “Lower yourself and your pride and sit with them.”
﴾يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللّهَ وَكُونُوا مَعَ الصَّادِقِينَ ﴿١١٩
9:119 – “Ya ayyuhal ladheena amanoo ittaqollaha wa kono ma’as sadiqeen.” (Surat At-Tawba)
“O you who have believed, have consciousness of Allah and be with those who are truthful/ Pious /sincere (in words and deed).” (The Repentance, 9:119)
They will train you and teach you. But you think you are going to take from my shaykh what I am taking from my shaykh? Shaytan is fooling you and playing with you. And why hasn’t your character changed? But when the shaykh’s face is dressing, he is blessing and changing the entire being of that person. It means their entire being, their energy, everything around them has been changed, because they stare into that Sun and they see the Sun with its realities, not as a reflection.
Some people may say, “O I see too.” No, you see through a reflection. If I take the sunshine and take a mirror and point it to you, you say, “O my gosh I am seeing the Sun.” No, incorrect, you only saw a reflection of the Sun. If you truly saw the Sun, it would begin to burn everything onto you. If you really went out and looked to the Sun what would happen? You feel the pain coming through your eyes. What then if you were truly looking at the face of the shaykh? Or you think you are even looking at Prophet ﷺ? You are looking at a reflection 1,000 times lower than it is, because the shaykh also has a Muhammadan reflection. That when you see the image of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ you are seeing the Shaykh’s reflection of his Muhammadan Reality. You are not seeing what his shaykh sees. You are not seeing what the shaykh above him sees and you are definitely not seeing what the Sultan al Awliya sees. [Pic]
With Love Come into the Hudoor (Presence) of the Shaykh
These are just mirrors, that is why all of tariqa was to come and break the mirror. Break your ego, break your bad characteristics, break all your desires. Break all these mirrors, be nothing, be nothing so they can begin to dress you. Come just as a student to be nothing. If you can come into that meditation, into that tafakkur, it means you become into their hudoor, into their presence. When you truly accompany the one you are with, and come into their presence then at that time they can begin to train you. They train you and their nazar (gaze) will be upon you. Their nazar will dress you and bless you and take away all the bad characteristics. From that reality they go deeper into that person and teach them about muhabbat. That nazar and muhabbat should be changing their character, change their ghadab, their anger, and change all of the badness of their character.
The Spiritual Practices Should change your Bad Character
There are people who can get angry in an instant. What was the purpose of all your practises? We are not talking about anger when Allah (AJ) is angry. There are certain things in life if you go out of your Islamic understanding, you anger Allah (AJ). You are going to anger them too because they cannot tolerate a falsehood and something against their Islamic belief. But we are talking about just general characteristics. If your characteristics are not changing; your anger is not changing, your bad desires and bad characteristics are not changing, this means your salat (prayer) is not changing you, your zakat (charity) is not changing you, your fasting is not changing you. It means something is being done wrong. Because if you do it right Allah (AJ) is going to change (you).
﴾إِنَّ اللَّـهَ لَا يُغَيِّرُ مَا بِقَوْمٍ حَتَّىٰ يُغَيِّرُوا مَا بِأَنفُسِهِمْ ۗ وَإِذَا أَرَادَ اللَّـهُ بِقَوْمٍ سُوءًا فَلَا مَرَدَّ لَهُ ۚ وَمَا لَهُم مِّن دُونِهِ مِن وَالٍ ﴿١١
13:11 – “…InnAllaha la yughayyiru ma biqawmin hatta yughayyiro ma bi anfusihim, wa idha arada Allahu biqawmin soo an fala maradda lahu wa ma lahum min doonihi min wal.” (Surat Ar-Ra’d)
“…Indeed Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves. And when Allah intends for a people ill, there is no repelling it. And there is not for them besides Him anyone to protect/patron.” (The Thunder, 13:11)
If you are doing your tafakkur, doing your contemplation, coming and asking to be dressed that, “I am nothing, I am nothing, I am nothing,” and they would come to us and teach us. One of the bigger shaykhs, the brother of my shaykh, would come and say, “Who is your shaykh?” to continually agitate. He would say, “Who is your shaykh?” I’d say, “My shaykh? I am a ghulam of the one whom Allah (AJ) put me in his presence. Shaykh is for the big guys, I am just a ghulam.” Because he wanted to come and confront. This way is about being nothing and continuously crushing, continuous crushing, so that Allah (AJ) can bring the sweetness of the reality. At that time they take you, they dress you, they bless you. When that face begins to dress you, all your characteristics change and you become a loving character, a sweet character, where people find pleasure and enjoyment in being around you.
We pray that Allah (AJ) dress us from those realities and bless us from those realities. Islam is a loaded, loaded reality. It is not something that is dry. It is coming from the Oceans of Heavens, of Paradise, filled with immense realities. We pray that Allah (AJ) dress us from those Lights and blesses us from those Lights.
