From the Realities of Mawlana (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
This Way is Based on the Breath, Hosh Dar Dam
The way of Sufism is to see our ourself in an ocean of light. In six directions there is light; in front of you and to the right of you, to the left of you, behind you, above you, and below you. And that the way of meditation through their [awliya (saints)] training is that you’re going to be meditating from the reality of your light. So, ask to be in that ocean of light and that, ‘My lord, let me enter into that ocean of light from all these six directions and take away every darkness and every difficulty.’ And asking to see ourselves in that light and breathe within that light, and that everything we exhale of difficulties and darkness, and everything that we inhale of His Divinely Grace and Divinely Lights. That that breath in tafakkur and in mediation is a rahmah and a mercy of Allah’s (AJ) immense Rahmah and Grace. That as soon as you breathe it in with that consciousness, and every spiritual path and every spiritual master of the Naqshbandi order says, ‘Our way is based on the breath, Hosh dar dam (conscious breathing).‘
Our Breath of Mercy is Our Gift of Life
That if you don’t understand the breath and you don’t understand the principles of tariqah (spiritual path), it’s a great loss of that power and that reality. So, then you don’t do things to contaminate the breath. Stay away from things that would damage the breath because the breath is God’s grace, Allah’s (AJ) immense Rahmah and Mercy that, ‘I blew into you of My Spirit.’
﴾فَإِذَا سَوَّيْتُهُ وَنَفَخْتُ فِيهِ مِن رُّوحِى فَقَعُواْ لَهُ سَـجِدِينَ ﴿٢٩
15:29 – “Fa idha sawwaytuhu wa nafakhtu feehi min Rohee faqa’o lahu sajideen.” (Surat Al-Hijr)
“So when I have proportioned him and breathed into him of My [created] soul/spirit, then fall down to him in prostration.” (The Rocky Tract, 15:29)
So, it means nafas ur-rahmah (breath of mercy) is a secret that Allah (AJ) gave to us that is our means of sustaining ourself in this life. As we breathe, that is a gift of life. Every breath is a gift of life. Twenty-four thousand, some awliya (saints) say, in every day.
Ask to Breathe in the Presence of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ
So, that breath should be in a consciousness. That breath should be awakened and understood that I’m breathing from Your Divine Mercy, Ya Rabbi, I’m breathing from Your immense Rahmah and that to see the immense blessings of that breath. If we see ourself in that ocean of light in front of us, then to be washed and cleansed. Those that have a higher understanding of the tafakkur (contemplation), they are asking to breathe that same breath but in the presence of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. That see ourselves at Rauza Sharif and online you can see Masjid an-Nabawi, the holy gate and which is blocking from the presence and the grave of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.
The Rauza Sharif, that asking to see ourselves there and that, ‘Ya Rabbi, I’m asking to breathe in this presence and to connect my heart with Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ’. Syeddi Ya Rasul-e-Kareeem Ya Habeeb ul Azeem unzur halana wa ishfalana bi Madadakum an Nazarakum, that I am completely nothing, I’m nothing; I’m not asking and thinking that I’m anything. I’m not coming with my amal (actions), my salah (prayer) or my zakat (charity), my sawm (fast), I’m nothing. I’m coming as if just a faqir. I’m absolutely effaced in my nothingness; I’m coming just to your Rauza Mubarak (Sacred Chamber/burial site of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ). Your immense blessings that Allah (AJ) has dressed upon you and I’m asking just to be here under Your Nazar (gaze). That by Your Rahmah (mercy), your prayers upon me to take away difficulties, take away obstacles in my life.
Ask to Be At the Foot of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ
Those that can go higher in their understanding they ask to be at the qadam and the foot, the holy foot of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. Our way is not based on the ego and thinking that it’s something great but asking that I’m coming through the door, my lord, of your lowest servant. I’m asking to come through the door of disbelief and I have negated all my amal (actions). If You find anything good in it, that’s by Your immense Rahmah (mercy). Me, I found nothing good in it and I’m coming with absolutely nothing, Ya Rabbi, let me just to keep my face and my forehead on the holy feet of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. This is a sujood al-ihtiram (prostration of respect), this is a respect that the angels were told to bow down to Sayyidina Adam (as) and they bowed down to the Nurul Muhammadi ﷺ within Sayyidina Adam (as).
﴾فَإِذَا سَوَّيْتُهُ وَنَفَخْتُ فِيهِ مِن رُّوحِي فَقَعُوا لَهُ سَاجِدِينَ ﴿٧٢
38:72 – “Fa idha sawwaytuhu wa nafakhtu feehi min Rohee faqa’o lahu sajideen.” (Surat Sad)
“So when I have proportioned him and breathed into him of My [created] soul/spirit, then fall down to him in prostration.” (Saad, 38:72)
Sayyidina Adam (as) Was Sent With Nurul Muhammadi ﷺ
That nur (light) that they knew from Divinely Presence, it entered into this creature known as Adam (as). As a result of that light entering into that creation, their astonishment that that light is not a light that they saw in their realm. And that was Allah’s (AJ) Rahmah (mercy) that I am creating my khalifa (deputy) and I am sending this special light within it and the angels were told to ‘bow down’.
﴾وَإِذْ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلْمَلاَئِكَةِ إِنِّي جَاعِلٌ فِي الأَرْضِ خَلِيفَةً… ﴿٣٠
2:30 – “Wa idh qala rabbuka lil Malayikati innee ja’ilun fil ardi khaleefatan,…” (Surat Al-Baqarah)
“And [mention, O Muhammad], when your Lord said to the angels, “Indeed, I will make upon the earth a Deputy/Representative…” (The Cow, 2:30)
Keeping the Way of the Siddiqs Leads You to Prophet Muhammad ﷺ
That in tafakkur (contemplation) is that, ‘Ya Rabbi, I’m asking just to keep my head on his holy qadam (footstep), Syeddi Ya Rasul-e-Kareem Habeeb al Azeem. Don’t let me to lift my head from your holy feet.’ It means in my life don’t let me to go left and right in different directions. Keep your holy qadam, qadam al Haq that the path of truth, qadam as-siddiq and make to be a muqaddam for these awliyaullah. That I keep my way and keep their way, keep the way of the siddiqs and sahabi (companions of Prophet ﷺ), Ahlul Bayt (family of Prophet ﷺ) all the way to the way of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. That’s why on their turban they have Nalain e-Pak, the blessed sandal of Prophet ﷺ is all over their turban. The blessed sandal of Prophet ﷺ is all over their turban, all over their body because they want to be like a carpet. Just let Prophet ﷺ walk on me; I’m in good shape. His feet, their blessed feet – Allah (AJ) says, ‘You don’t even have to take your shoes off in My Presence.’
رُوِيَ أَنَّ الرَّسُولَ صَلّىٰ الله عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمْ، عِنْدَمَا وَصَلَ إلَىٰ الْعَرْشِ لَيْلَةَ الْمِعْرَاجِ، أَرَادَ أَنْ يَخْلَعَ نَعْلَيْهِ .
فَنُودِي : لِمَاذَا تَخْلَعَ نَعْلَيْكَ؟
فَقَالَ : إِلَهِي خَشِيتُ عَاقِبَةُ الطَّرْدَ ، وَمَرَارَةُ الرَّدَ ، وَأَنْ يُقَالَ لِي كَمَا قِيلَ لِأَخِي مُوسَىٰ.
فَنُودِي : يَا مُحَمَّدُ ﷺ ، إنْ كَانَ مُوسَىٰ أَرَادَ ، فَأَنْتَ الْمُرَادُ ، وَإِنْ كَانَ مُوسَىٰ أَحَبَّ، فَأَنْتَ الْمَحْبُوبُ، وَإِنْ كَانَ مُوسَىٰ طَلَبَ ، فَأَنْتَ الْمَطْلُوُبُ ، وَأَنْتَ الْقَرِيبُ ، وَأَنْتَ الْحَبِيبُ ، فَسَلْنِي مَا تُحِبُّ ، فَإِنِّي سَمِيعٌ مُجِيبٌ .
فَقَالَ الرَّسُولُ الْكَرِيمَ ﷺ: إِلَهِي؛ لَا أَسْأَلُك آمِنَةَ اَلَّتِي وَلَدَتْنِي، وَلَا حَلِيمَةً اَلَّتِي أَرْضَعَتْنِي، وَلَا فَاطِمَةَ إبْنَتِيِ ، وَإِنَّمَا أَسْأَلُكَ أُمَّتِي.
فَقِيلَ لَهُ : يَا نَبِيَّ الرَّحْمَةِ ، مَا أَشْفَقَكَ عَلَىٰ هَذِهِ الْأُمَّةِ ! أُمَّتَكَ خَلْقٌ ضَعِيفٌ. وَأَنَا رَبٌّ لَطِيفٌ ، وَأَنْتَ نَبِيٌّ شَرِيفٌ ، وَلَا يَضِيِعُ الضَّعِيفَ بَيْنَ اللَّطِيفُ وَالشَّرِيفُ ، فَوَعِّزَتِيِ وَجَلَالِيِ ، لَأَقْسِمَنَّ الْقِيَامَةُ بَيْنِيِ وَبَيْنَكَ شَطْرَيْنَ؛ أَنْتَ تَقُولُ : أُمَّتِي أُمَّتِي، وَأَنَا أَقُولُ : رَحْمَتِي رَحْمَتِي.

It was narrated that when the Prophet (pbuh) reached the Holy Throne in the Night of Ascension, he wanted to take off his sandals/shoes. So he was called upon (by Allah (AJ) the Almighty), “Why are you trying to take off your sandals?”
The Prophet (pbuh) said, “O Allah, I was afraid of being dismissed and turned away, or to be told like my brother Musa (as) was told.”
The Prophet (pbuh) was called again, “ O, Muhammad ﷺ, Musa wanted us, but you are the one We want, and Musa loved us, but you are our beloved, and Musa sought us, but you are what We want, you are very near to us and you are the beloved. Ask me what you wish, I am the All-Hearing, and The Fulfiller of Prayers.”
The Prophet (pbuh) said, “O My Lord, I wouldn’t ask for Amina who gave birth to me, nor for Halimah who nursed me, not for Fatima my daughter, but I would ask you for my nation.”
The Prophet (pbuh) was called, “O, Prophet of Mercy, you are kind and compassionate with this nation. Your nation are weak creatures. And I am The Most Kind/Most Gentle Lord, and you are the Honorable Prophet.
The weak and hopeless won’t be lost between The Most Kind (Allah (AJ), and the Most Noble (Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)), by My Might and Majesty, I will divide the judgment day between you and I. You will say, ‘My nation, my nation,‘ and I will say, ‘My Mercy, My Mercy.’”
Keep Connection to Your Shaykh to Receive Madad
So, what can be more blessed than that? And what can be a great gift for us to see is to see the feet of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ! I’m sitting and just looking for your blessed feet, keep me at your blessed feet, let my head to be always be at your blessed feet, Ya Syeddi Ya Rasul-e-Kareem. Have your mercy upon me, forgive me, forgive me. If you make the dua (supplication), Allah (AJ), inshaAllah, will forgive. InshaAllah, we ask to keep ourself in that understanding and in that reality of tafakkur and contemplation. And that by learning that reality amongst these shaykhs that they can bring their faiz (downpouring blessings) and make like an internet connection. That when you’re with them, meditating with them or via internet, the faiz of their shaykh is flowing through become like a wifi in which you learn how to connect, ask for madad and support, and their energy begin to hit you and grant you a connection in which you can begin to hear through their hearing and you begin to see with their seeing.
Light of Awliya Shine Upon Us When We Believe We Are Nothing
The whole concept of the madad (support) is that to take myself out of the equation. I’m nothing, I’m nothing; if I really believe I’m nothing then their light will begin to shine through. This is from Atiullaha wa atiur Rasula wa Ulil amre minkum.
﴾ياأَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَطِيعُواللَّه وَأَطِيعُوٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ…﴿٥٩
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)
That Allah (AJ) asked us to be obedient to Allah (AJ), to follow the way. Follow the way of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ and follow the way of the ulul amr (saints). The real ulul amr that are inheriting that faiz (downpouring blessings) from Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ and they begin to broadcast that energy out. And we are all like mobile phones. If we can connect with that energy and that’s why they teach that the connection – if you want it stronger, have good character, have good manners. The good character and the manners bring God’s grace, Allah (AJ) to be happy with us.
If Your Heart is Rotten, Love is Wasted For You
We’re talking to audiences of thousands of people, most of which are not Muslim and coming towards the reality of Islam. So, means we’re not here to make people to be Arabs. We’re here to teach people from our religion in words and in understandings that they understand. It means Allah’s (AJ) Rahmah and Grace is Divine Grace. This Divine Grace doesn’t dress us with bad character. You can say you love Jesus but if you’re rotten in your heart, that love is wasted for you. You can say you love Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ but your heart is rotten, it’s wasted for you because then you truly don’t love. If you really love, you would have good character. Anyone with good character has a soft tongue. If that character is good, Allah’s (AJ) Grace is dressing, Rahmah (mercy) dressing. Allah’s (AJ) happy and satisfied with them.
Allah (AJ) is Merciful By Giving Us Good Actions
When Allah (AJ) loves you and is satisfied with you, He gives you actions that He will be pleased with, that’s His Mercy. When He says, ‘I’m really happy with you. I really like your character. I’m happy with your character. I’m going to give you actions that match so that My creation won’t be judging you because I love you.’ Salaamun qawlam mir Rabbir Raheem.
﴾سَلَامٌ قَوْلًا مِّن رَّبٍّ رَّحِيمٍ ﴿٥٨
36:58 – “Salamun qawlam mir Rabbir Raheem.” (Surat YaSeen)
“Peace,” a word from a Merciful Lord. (YaSeen, 36:58)
‘Salaams (greetings) from Me is coming upon you. I’m happy with your khuluq (character). I’m happy with your characteristics and your muhabbat (love) and you may be weak on your actions but I’ll make your actions to be strong. So, that My creation will be astonished to who you are.’
Angels Are Sent To Do Good Deeds On Our Behalf
Is Allah (AJ) Almighty versus the reverse way; think like I’m going to do like amazing actions that God will be happy with? No! They taught us, no, come with this muhabbat and love and Allah (AJ) will make everything to be beautiful. Even awliyaullah Shaykh Daghestani (Q) said that, ‘Allah will make an angel and put that angel just to do amal (good deeds) on your behalf. And the angel will pray prayers that nobody could imagine, make duas (supplications) that nobody could imagine. And all the amal (good deeds) of the angel will be written upon the servant.’ Allah’s (AJ) great. You can’t say, ‘No, Allah (AJ) can’t do that.’ Allah (AJ) can do whatever Allah (AJ) wants to do.
We Are Oppressors to Ourselves
It means don’t limit Allah’s (AJ) Majesty and Grace but all it took was good character so with good character we came to the door and said I’m nothing, I’m nothing, I’m truly sick of myself. I’m truly sick of my bad characteristic, my bad mouth. I agitate and aggravate. When you truly identify la ilaha illaa Anta Subhanaka innee kuntu minaz zaalimeen. That glory be to God and I’m an oppressor to myself.
﴾وَذَا النُّونِ إِذ ذَّهَبَ مُغَاضِبًا فَظَنَّ أَن لَّن نَّقْدِرَ عَلَيْهِ فَنَادَىٰ فِي الظُّلُمَاتِ أَن لَّا إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا أَنتَ سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّي كُنتُ مِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ ﴿٨٧
21:87 – “Wa Zan Nooni idh dhahaba mughadiban fazhanna al lan naqdira ‘alayhi fanada fizh zhulumati an la ilaha illa anta Subhanaka, innee kuntu minazh zhalimeen. (Surat Al-Anbiya)
“And [mention] Zulnun [Yunus (Jonah) (as)], when he went off in anger and thought that We had no power/decree over him! But he cried out through the depths of darkness, “There is no god/diety except You; Glory to you: Indeed I have been of the wrongdoers/Oppressor to Myself!” (The Prophets, 21:87)
If every day I say that ayat al-Kareem (verse of holy Qur’an) and keep saying to myself, saying to myself, at some point you begin to believe I’m nothing. This world has fooled me and everybody has used me as a tool and I’m nothing, I’m nothing, my lord. If you reach that state of nothingness Allah’s (AJ) Rahmah and Mercy begins to dress upon your heart. If I’m nothing and then they taught me how to make my madad (support), how to make my connection.
We Are Under the Nazar of Nabiyeen, Siddiqeen, Shuhada and Saliheen
That I don’t want to go, ‘for verily I walk through the valley of death and I know that I’m not alone’. Every book says, for I know my lord is with me and Allah (AJ) says, ‘Of course you’re with me. You’re with me and I have many of the saliheen following you. I have nabiyeen (prophets) watching you, siddiqeen (truthful) watching you, saliheen (righteous) watching you, shuhada (witnesses) watching you, because I love you”.
﴾وَمَن يُطِعِ اللّهَ وَالرَّسُولَ فَأُوْلَـئِكَ مَعَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمَ اللّهُ عَلَيْهِم مِّنَ النَّبِيِّينَ وَالصِّدِّيقِينَ وَالشُّهَدَاء وَالصَّالِحِينَ وَحَسُنَ أُولَـئِكَ رَفِيقًا ﴿٦٩
4:69 – “Wa man yuti’ Allaha war Rasula 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 (pbuh) are in the company of those on whom Allah has bestowed His Favours/Blessings – of the prophets, the sincere Truthful, the witnesses (who testify), and the Righteous, and excellent are those as companions.” (The Women, 4:69)
So, they’re watching. So, as soon as we make our tafakkur (contemplation), I’m nothing, I’m nothing then Allah (AJ) ittaqollaha wa kono ma’as sadiqeen. Have a consciousness and accompany my truthful servants, truthful in their deeds and in their character.
﴾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)
Rahman is More Powerful Than Shaitan
Soon as you accompany them, not physically – spiritually. You don’t have to always be around the shaykh, it’s impossible. How can one personality be everywhere physically? But he can multiply himself through his students and his light can be everywhere. It’s not something difficult. Allah’s (AJ) might and majesty, the reality of the soul, everybody believes shaitan (satan) is everywhere. Rahman (the Beneficent) is more powerful! Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ is everywhere, awliyaullah (saints) are everywhere. Assalamu ‘alaika ayyuhan-nabi wa ‘ibaadillaahis saa’liheen.
التَّحِيَّاتُ لِلّٰهِ وَالصَّلَوَاتُ وَالطَّيِّبَاتُ، اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ، اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْنَا وَ عَلٰى عِبَادِ اللهِ الصَّالِحِيْنَ، أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا اللهُ، وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَ رَسُوْلُهُ
“At-tahiyyatu lillahi, was-salawatu wat-tayyibatu, as-salamu ‘alayka, ayyuhan-nabiyyu wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh, as-salamu ‘alayna wa ‘ala ‘ibadillahis-saliheen. Ashhadu an la ilaha illallahu wa ashhadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa Rasuluh.”
“Salutations to God and prayers and good deeds. Peace be upon you, O Prophet, and the mercy of God and his blessings. Peace be on us and on the righteous servants of God. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and His messenger.”
We say it in every prayer. We give the salaams to Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ in present tense wa‘ibaadillaahis saa’liheen. These saliheen (righteous) whom are all and always with Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.
Build Your Faith Through Tafakkur
So, as soon as I’m nothing, I’m making my tafakkur (contemplation). I’m asking Ya Rabbi let me to be with your being. Let me say Assalamu ‘alaika Syeddi Ya Rasul e kareem Ya Habeeb al Azeem. I don’t need to see I’m nothing, I’m no one, Ya ibaadillaahis saa’liheen, please keep your nazar (gaze) upon me. I’m a weak servant. As Allah (AJ) gave you gifts and blessings, look upon me with your pity. If you are sincerely asking and sincerely asking Allah (AJ) begin to open a khashf (spiritual vision) in your heart. That your heart will begin to see that they’re right there in front of you and you see with the eye of your iman (faith), not the eye of your physical eyes but with your faith. You see that they’re there and present with you. And say Ya ibaadillaahis saa’liheen I’m nothing, I’m nothing. Make the madad, read the madad (support) of the shaykhs that I’m nothing and that they’re watching me. That dress me and bless me with your faiz (downpouring blessings).
Hold Tight to the Rope of Allah
Worshipness is only for Allah (AJ) but Allah (AJ) order was what wa kono ma’as sadiqeen (Qur’an, 9:119), keep the company of the sadiq. WaAAtasimoo bihabliAllahi, don’t, don’t, don’t break away, hold tight to the rope of Allah (AJ).
﴾وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللَّـهِ جَمِيعًا وَلَا تَفَرَّقُوا ۚ ﴿١٠٣
3:103 – “Wa’tasimo bihab lillahi jamee’an wa la tafarraqo…” (Surat Ali-Imran)
“And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not separate…” (Family of Imran, 3:103)
So, as soon as they’re holding, spiritual is more important than physical. So, they see themselves in that presence and asking to be nothing that dress your faiz (downpouring blessings) and light upon me and they begin to feel the light and the energy that is dressing them and blessing them and their whole life was about that connection. As much as you learn to be dressed and blessed by this reality, as much as you begin to make your faith to be real. Islam is not dried fruits and is not a fake wax fruit. You should be feeling the Islam and the ocean of iman (faith) is immense power. It means from every direction when they’re breathing, they’re breathing energy. From every direction, Allah (AJ) is sending into the heart. Everything is alive and everything has a zikr, everything has a fragrance. This maqamul Iman (station of faith) is an immense opening from Allah (AJ). It’s not plastic fruit.
Tafakkur is the Door to the Soul
There’s so much that has to be opened but it opens only through the door of tafakkur (contemplation). It’s the door of the soul. When Allah (AJ) says, ‘Enter the house through the proper door’, it’s the door of the soul from malakut (heavenly realm).
﴾وَلَيْسَ الْبِرُّ بِأَن تَأْتُوا الْبُيُوتَ مِن ظُهُورِهَا وَلَـٰكِنَّ الْبِرَّ مَنِ اتَّقَىٰ ۗ وَأْتُوا الْبُيُوتَ مِنْ أَبْوَابِهَا ۚ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّـهَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ ﴿١٨٩…
2:189 – “…Wa laysal birru bi-an tatol buyoota min zuhooriha wa lakinnal birra manit taqa, wa’ tol buyoota min abwabiha, wat taqollaha la’allakum tuflihoon.” (Surat Al-Baqarah)
“…And it is not righteousness to enter houses from the back, but righteousness is [in] one who fears Allah. And enter houses from their doors. And be Conscious of Allah that you may succeed.” (The Cow, 2:189)
Awliya Guide Your Heart to an Ocean of Light
You have to connect with your soul that I’m nothing that my shaykh is in front of me. I’m nothing and my shaykh’s faiz (downpouring blessings) is beginning to dress me. This becomes an encrypted channel through spiritual connections and that’s what’s important.You’re not going to take your faith from television and you’re not going to take your coordinates from television. That you’re going to see through the darkness of this material world through the eye of your heart and through the eyes of faith. As soon as you begin to meditate and contemplate, these lights and these energies can begin to dress the heart, bless the heart. They send lights and coordinates to that heart. So, that in the midst of darkness, you’re in an ocean of light and you don’t feel the darkness and the sadness. You feel yourself to be guided and that’s what Allah (AJ) is talking about. Those whom are guided are truly guided. Those whom have been granted a light, have been granted a light and none can receive the light except that is granted by that light.
﴾وَقَالُوا الْحَمْدُ لِلَّـهِ الَّذِي هَدَانَا لِهَـٰذَا وَمَا كُنَّا لِنَهْتَدِيَ لَوْلَا أَنْ هَدَانَا اللَّـهُ ۖ لَقَدْ جَاءَتْ رُسُلُ رَبِّنَا بِالْحَقِّ…﴿٤٣…
7:43 – “…wa qalo Alhamdulillahi al ladhee hadana lihadha wa ma kunna linahtadiya lawla an hadana Allahu, laqad jaa at Rusulu Rabbina bil Haqqi…” (Surat Al-A’raf)
“… And they will say, Praise be to Allah, who has guided us to this [joy and happiness]; and we would never have been guided if Allah had not guided us. Certainly the messengers of our Lord had come with the truth…” (The Heights, 7:43)
We pray that Allah (AJ) dress us and bless us from the realities of tafakkur (contemplation) and muraqabah (meditation), inshaAllah.
