Mi’raj to the Heart of Prophet Sit With Awliya.

Face, Presence, and Essence 

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

Mi’raj (Ascension) of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ Was to La Ilaha IllAllah

For hearts to understand where we came from, know where we’re going. We said many times, and a repeat for myself to get a better understanding, always for myself. That la ilaha illAllah (There is no diety but Allah), means don’t look here. There’s no sharik, no partner with Allah (AJ). That we are from the ocean of Muhammadun RasulAllah ﷺ. That in Muhammadun RasulAllah ﷺ, the mi’raj (ascension) of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ was to the reality of la ilaha illAllah.

لَا إِلَهَ إلاَّ اللهُ مُحَمَّدٌا رَسُولْ الله

La ilaha illallahu Muhammadun Rasulallah

“There is no diety but Allah, Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is the messenger of Allah.”

Allah (AJ) Described the Creation is in a Misbah (Lamp)

That when Allah (AJ) want to disclose his reality to His Beloved creation. So, we said before, this misbah, Allah (AJ) describes in Surat an-Nur, that this creation is in a, misbah, in a candle holder. And Allah (AJ) is a force and power outside of creation. Allah (AJ) is not inside creation. Allah (AJ) is outside of creation. La ilaha illAllah is outside.

﴾اللَّـهُ نُورُ‌ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْ‌ضِ ۚ مَثَلُ نُورِ‌هِ كَمِشْكَاةٍ فِيهَا مِصْبَاحٌ ۖ الْمِصْبَاحُ فِي زُجَاجَةٍ ۖ الزُّجَاجَةُ كَأَنَّهَا كَوْكَبٌ دُرِّ‌يٌّ … يَكَادُ زَيْتُهَا يُضِيءُ وَلَوْ لَمْ تَمْسَسْهُ نَارٌ‌ ۚ نُّورٌ‌ عَلَىٰ نُورٍ‌ ۗ… ﴿٣٥

24:35 – “Allahu noorus samawati wal ardi. mathalu noorehi kamishkatin feeha misbahun, almisbahu fee zujajatin, azzujajatu kaannaha kawkabun durriyyun … yakadu zaytuha yudeeo wa law lam tamsashu naarun. noorun ‘ala noorin…” (Surat An-Nur)

“Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The Parable of His Light is as if there were a Niche and within it a Lamp: the Lamp enclosed in Glass: the glass as it were a brilliant star: … though fire scarce touched it: Light upon Light!…” (The Light, 24:35)

When Allah (AJ) wanted to be known, He made creation. The whole ocean of creation is called Muhammadun RasulAllah ﷺ, Nur ul Muhammad ﷺ, nurul anwar wa sirratal asraar – the light of every secret and the secret of every light. When we understand where we came from, because arifeen (knowers), why Allah (AJ) call them arifeen? Because Allah (AJ) showed them. They’re not blind people on this Earth. Allah (AJ) took, open their heart and showed them their reality. That you’re not from Me. You’re nowhere close to any of that reality. Your reality and your arwah (soul) is with Abu Arwah, the father of souls, Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. If you don’t know, don’t worry. Be patient, Allah (AJ) will one day disclose to you.

That, that reality of my light, it cannot be sharik with Allah (AJ). My light doesn’t go back to be one with Allah (AJ). We don’t have Wahdatul Wujud (Unity of existence), Wahdatu Shuhud (Unity in Witnessing)  may Allah (AJ) will let you to see His realities, but you never become one with Allah (AJ), astaghfirullah! That our light is from Muhammadun RasulAllah ﷺ.

Sadiqeen’s Mi’raj is to the Reality of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ

This means when we know where we came, very easy to go for our mi’raj. That if you sitting and waiting for a mi’raj to Allah (AJ), you wait ten thousand years and that won’t come. That’s why those who don’t understand, they wait, nothing comes. Arifeen (knowers), why Allah (AJ) says ‘ittaqollaha wa kono ma’as sadiqeen?’

﴾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)

That they had consciousness, and accompanied the sadiq (truthful). Those whom, their character, their action in their deed is truthful. Because Allah opened for them, Allah brought them back onto Earth, said you don’t have to die, you mawt al qabl al-mawt. (dead before dying). You reached what we wanted you to reach of these oceans of light. We sent you back to humanity – guide them, teach them. That when you realize that our mi’raj is to the reality of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.

If you’re from this light, your mi’raj is not out here (outside of the lamp) to find Allah (AJ). Because Allah (AJ) said ‘Qalb al mu’min baytullah. Where you looking? ‘Not in heaven, not on earth, but I’m in the heart of my believer, Allah’s (AJ) only believer, real belief, is Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. [Pic ]

قَلْبَ الْمُؤْمِنْ بَيْتُ الرَّبْ

“Qalb al mu’min baytur rabb.” 

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

 

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 (pbuh))

Our Iman is to Love Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ More Than Anyone

So, then Prophet ﷺ, all these hadith and Qur’an where Prophet ﷺ is teaching, you be with whom you love.

 قَالَ رَسُول اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه و سلم:  الْمَرْءُ مَعَ مَنْ أَحَب

Qala Rasulullah (saws): “Almar o, ma’a man ahab.”

Prophet Muhammad (saws) said: “One is with those whom he loves.” 

And if you love me, you have iman (faith), if you love me more than yourself, more than your father and your brother, and your children, and your mother. Love me more than you love all of those. You’re from the people of iman (faith). So, it means that you be with whom you love.

لاَ يُؤْمِنُ أَحَدُكُمْ حَتَّى أَكُونَ أَحَبَّ إِلَيْهِ مِنْ وَالِدِهِ وَوَلَدِهِ وَالنَّاسِ أَجْمَعِينَ ‏”‏‏.‏

“La yuminu ahadukum hatta akona ahabba ilayhi min walidihi wa waladihi wan Nasi ajma’yeen.”

“None of you will have faith till he loves me more than his father, his children and all mankind.” Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ)

Look Within, Purify Your Heart and make it House of Allah (AJ)

So, Prophet ﷺ was teaching us, you don’t have to look out. You actually have to look in. What are you looking on the out for? What, what is out there? House with stones? Allah (AJ) is not in there. Allah (AJ) say, ‘I gave you the greatest gift I can give, Qalb al mu’min baytullah. I gave you My house. If you clean it, you wash it, and you purify it.’

﴾أَن طَهِّرَا بَيْتِيَ لِلطَّائِفِينَ وَالْعَاكِفِينَ وَالرُّكَّعِ السُّجُودِ ﴿١٢٥…

2:125 – “…An Tahhir baytee liTayifeena, wal ‘Aakifeena, wa ruka’is sujood.” (Surat Al-Baqarah)

“…Purify/Sanctify My House for those who perform Tawaf (circumambulation) and those who seclude themselves for devotion, and bow and prostrate [in prayer].” (The Cow, 2;125)

So, every house, every heart is a house of Allah (AJ). And what Allah (AJ) want from this Isra wal Mi’raj is make your house the haramain, make your house where there is no haram (forbidden). When you cut the haram and cut what’s incorrect, Allah (AJ) will make His house upon your heart.

So, they teach very simple. The mi’raj is very powerful. But awliyaullah (saints), they understood that our mi’raj is to our reality. I’m not looking out. I’m trying to go into what is this nurul anwar? What is this sirratal asraar? Why did Prophet ﷺ call all his companions a star? ‘That all of them became stars, I am the star maker.’ Come back into that light and realize the secret of that light.

أَصْحَابِيْ كَالنُّجُـــومْ بِأَيْهِمْ اَقْتَدَيْتِمْ اَهْتَدَيْتِمْ

“Ashabi kan Nujoom, bi ayyihim aqta daytum ahta daytum.”

“My companions are like stars. Follow any one of them and you will be guided.” Prophet Muhammad (saws)

Awliya’s Miraj is to the Soul of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ

When these awliyaullah (saints), their mi’raj and their movement was with their soul and their body to fall in love with Prophet ﷺ, it became a Divinely Companionship. That they made their body and their soul to accompany Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ by following the sunnah, the way, and the muhabbat, the character, the akhlaq of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.

Where Allah (AJ) says, Qul inni kuntum tuhibbon Allaha fattabi’oni, wa yuhbibkumullahu? They followed that way, they followed the order of Allah (AJ). As a result, they became dressed – you will be with whom you love – they became dressed with Nurul Muhammadi ﷺ.

﴾قُلْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تُحِبُّوْنَ اللَّـهَ فَاتَّبِعُوْنِيْ يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللَّـهُ وَيَغْفِرْ‌ لَكُمْ ذُنُوْبَكُمْ ۗ وَاللَّـهُ غَفُورٌ‌ رَّ‌حِيمٌ  ﴿٣١

3:31 – “Qul in kuntum tuhibbon Allaha fattabi’oni, yuhbibkumullahu wa yaghfir lakum dhunobakum wallahu Ghaforur Raheem.” (Surat Ali-Imran)

“Say, [O Muhammad], “If you should love Allah, then follow me, [so] Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.” (Family of Imran, 3:31)

Nurul Iman is  when Your Light Loves Prophet ﷺ More than You

Then Allah (AJ) described, Feekum, that Prophet ﷺ is amongst you.Many different deep realities in that. But if you draw so near to Prophet ﷺ with all your love and all your ishq, and that light begin to graft upon you, that Nurul Muhammadi begin to overtake all your light.

﴾كَمَا أَرْ‌سَلْنَا فِيكُمْ رَ‌سُولًا مِّنكُمْ يَتْلُو عَلَيْكُمْ آيَاتِنَا وَيُزَكِّيكُمْ وَيُعَلِّمُكُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَيُعَلِّمُكُم مَّا لَمْ تَكُونُوا تَعْلَمُونَ ﴿١٥١

2:151 – “Kama arsalna feekum Rasulan 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)

Because iman (faith) is not body. Iman is nur (light). Islam is your body. Maqamul Iman (station of Faith) has nothing to do with your body. Maqamul Iman has to do with nur, it’s nurul iman (light of faith). It means when your light loves Prophet ﷺ more than it loves you. You surrender your light and your wujood (existence), ‘Ya Rabbi, I’m nothing, I’m nothing. I’m tired of loving myself, and I love myself, and it got nowhere.’ Love that which is eternal.

Love of Prophet ﷺ  Turns Our Temporary Candle to an Eternal Sun

So, when the candle moves towards the sun, it reaches eternity. Everybody’s life on this earth is a temporary candle. Don’t think you made it just because you’re born. The, the light of your candle is still temporary. It didn’t reach its eternal reality. It didn’t become daim (eternal). What Allah (AJ) gave us all a life, don’t waste it. This candle is about to burn out. If it goes, it’s finished.

So, they (saints) use this dunya (material world) to reach their daim, to reach their eternal reality. When they fell in love and move towards the love, the love of Prophet ﷺ overtook their light. Say I’m going to make your temporary light, to be a permanent light, and that is the reality of the intercession of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.

Feekum – Prophet ﷺ is Amongst Us Through Awliyaullah (saints)

When Prophet ﷺ intercede, it’s not by lisan (tongue), and it’s not by badan, but it’s by the light of Prophet ﷺ. When Prophet ﷺ intercedes for your light, it means his light will move into your light, overtake your light, and become Nurul Muhammadi ﷺ. When these awliyaullah (saints), they’re dressed by the light of Prophet ﷺ. Wherever they go, it’s Nurul Muhammad ﷺ spreading. And that’s why Allah (AJ) describes Feekum, they’re amongst you (Qur’an, 2:151). 124,000 awliyaullah are always on this earth. And they are the light of Prophet ﷺ. They are the reflections of those light. They are the walking realities of those light. Holy Qur’an is reflecting through their soul. Holy hadith reflecting through their soul.

Our Miraj is to the Presence of Prophet ﷺ Through Awliyaullah –

Find one of 124,000 Saints

If the mi’raj is to the presence of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, then our life is to find one of these 124,000 awliyaullah (saints). It’s enough for you just to sit with them, eat with them, pray with them. As soon as you sit in their association or you look at them, the light that reflecting from Prophet ﷺ begin to reflect upon the people.

Light! When that light begin to hit upon your light, and this is from the hadith that you’ll be with whom you love.It creates that love and that energy and it pulls your light back to their reality. Their reality pull to the shaykh, to the shaykh, to the shaykh, all the way to presence of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. This means they’re in a continuous mi’raj.

 قَالَ رَسُول اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه و سلم:  الْمَرْءُ مَعَ مَنْ أَحَب

Qala Rasulullah (saws): “Almar o, ma’a man ahab.”

Prophet Muhammad (saws) said: “One is with those whom he loves.” 

These holidays (Lailatul Isra wal Miraj – Night of Ascension), are for the nation to stop one day and recognize what they’re doing. But the mi’raj of the believer is at every moment. Every salat (prayer) is a mi’raj. Every zikr (remembrance) is a mi’raj. Every association is a mi’raj because their soul immediately goes back into the presence of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ .

And the fastest way is by praising upon Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. As soon as you praise upon whom Allah (AJ) loves, praise upon Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, upon Ahlul Bayt , upon Ashab an Nabi ﷺ. Give the story and the qisa of awliyaullah fis Samyi wa fil Ardi (saints in the heavens and on earth).

Ashiqeen are in a Contineous Mi’raj to the Presence of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ

Your soul immediately moves to be present with them and is in a continuous mi’raj at all moments as it’s ascending into the heavens. So, it means that every moment is a mi’raj, not once a year. Once a year because the nation, 99% of the nation, is so busy that Prophet ﷺ said, ‘At least one day stop and remember what I accomplished.’ Just by you stopping and doing that day, Prophet ﷺ will dress you from the realities.

But for those whom are seeking the reality, every moment of their life is a mi’raj. Every moment of their life, Prophet ﷺ is continuously ascending to ‘qaba qawsayni aw adna (two bows or nearer) (Qur’an, 53:9) which means that wherever Allah’s (AJ) creation is expanding, Prophet ﷺ is right there. As much as Allah (AJ) expands the universe, as much as Nurul Muhammadi ﷺ is moving. So, it means that Prophet ﷺ is continuously expansion and movement. And those whom are ashiqeen (lovers), their souls continuously moving in that reality. Just by coming to the associations of love, immediately they dress and bless all the souls.

﴾فَكَانَ قَابَ قَوْسَيْنِ أَوْ أَدْنَىٰ ﴿٩

53:9 – “Fakana qaaba qawsayni aw adna.” (Surat An-Najm)

“And was at a distance of two bow lengths or nearer [to the Divine Presence].” (The Star, 53:9)

Real Taqwa (Consciousness) is to Use your Senses for Allah (AJ)

So, the mi’raj is not something difficult to achieve. That’s why Allah (AJ), be conscious, ittaqullah. Use all of your taqwa, consciousness.

﴾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)

You sit with them, but you don’t see them. You hear them, but you don’t hear them. You know them, but you don’t know them. So, you didn’t reach taqwa. Had you reached taqwa (consciousness), you would’ve heard something different when you sat with them. And you would’ve seen many astonishing things, had you really seen them.

It means that these senses are not being used the way Allah (AJ) wants. Taqwa means that these senses are all being used for Allah (AJ). They’re not being used for the deceit of dunya (material world), ‘Oh, I have eyes Shaykh, I see.’ No, you see MTV, you see YouTube, not see them. Because the real sight is in the heart.

Allah (AJ) Dresses Sayyidina Muhammad and he ﷺ  Dresses Awliya With Lights

You hear, but you don’t really hear. It means you didn’t open the, the hearing of the heart in which it hears realities. As the Shaykh is speaking, the heart can hear many realities from the heavens. This means when all those senses are opening, then Allah (AJ) says, now you understand, why who are the sadiqeen. When you accompany the sadiq, they dress you from all the lights that Allah (AJ) has dressed upon them. From Ati ullah ati ar rasul wa ulil amri minkum, that whatever Allah (AJ) dressed upon Prophet ﷺ, Prophet ﷺ dressed upon his awliyaullah (saints).

﴾أَطِيعُواللَّه وَأَطِيعُوٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ… ﴿٥٩…

4:59 – “…Atiullaha wa atiur Rasula wa Ulil amre minkum…” (Surat An-Nisa)

“… Obey Allah, Obey the Messenger, and those in authority among you…” (The Women, 4:59)

Awliyaullah Are the Qamarun (Moons) and the Face of this Nation

Awliyaullah and those whom love Prophet ﷺ, they are the face of this nation and they’re qamarun. As soon as you look at their face, their nazar (gaze), and that’s why Allah (AJ) says, ‘Everything perishes, but the holy face.’

﴾وَلَا تَدْعُ مَعَ اللَّـهِ إِلَـٰهًا آخَرَ ۘ لَا إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ ۚ كُلُّ شَيْءٍ هَالِكٌ إِلَّا وَجْهَهُ ۚ لَهُ الْحُكْمُ وَإِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ ﴿٨٨

28:88 – “Wala tad’uo ma’Allahi ilahan aakhara la ilaha illa huwa 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)

This means don’t distract your life with everything else in life. Find one of these 124,000. It’s enough for you to look at their face. Their face has enough power through their two ears, their two eyes, their nostril, and their tongue to grab your soul and bring you into the presence. From ati ullah ati ar rasul wa ulil amri minkum (Qur’an, 4:59). This ulil amr, they’re the face of the nation, qamarun (moons).

Awliya’s Face is a Door to the Room of Reality

By looking at them, their nazar (gaze), that Allah (AJ) gave for 7 sifats, 7 essences to dress them, dresses their holy openings. As a result, when they look at you, they pull your soul into that reality. So, for us to understand is as if they pull you into the reality. The reality is like a room, their face is like the door. How can you get into the room if you don’t go through the door? You can’t break through a window. So, Allah (AJ) said, ‘Enter the house through the correct door.’

﴾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)

Don’t Say, Shaykh Listen to Me, But Ask For His Nazar

This means go to my 124,000 faces. If you’re under their nazar (gaze), that’s why you don’t say, ‘Listen to me, Shaykh, listen to me.’ As in Allah (AJ) corrected the nation, ‘Don’t tell Prophet ﷺ to listen to you.’ He’s ‘samina wa atana (we hear and we obey). (Quran 24:51)This is the nation of, we hear, and we obey. We never tell Prophet ﷺ to listen to us, but unzur halana wa ishfalana. (Quran 2:104 ) That put your holy nazar upon me, Ya Sayiddi. Ya Rasul Kareem, Ya Habibul Azeem, if your nazar come upon me, immediately you’ll be taking me into the Divinely Presence because the nazar has power. It’s not empty. It’s filled with power.

﴾إِنَّمَا كَانَ قَوْلَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ إِذَا دُعُوا إِلَى اللَّـهِ وَرَسُولِهِ لِيَحْكُمَ بَيْنَهُمْ أَن يَقُولُوا سَمِعْنَا وَأَطَعْنَا ۚ وَأُولَـٰئِكَ هُمُ الْمُفْلِحُونَ ﴿٥١

24:51 – “Innama kana qawlal mumineena idha du’ao ilAllahi wa Rasulihi liyahkuma baynahum an yaqolo samina wa atana, wa olaika humul muflihoon.” (Surat An-Nur)

“The only statement of the [true] believers when they are called to Allah and His Messenger to judge between them is that they say, “We hear and we obey.” And those are the successful.” (The Light, 24:51)

&

﴾يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَقُولُوا رَاعِنَا وَقُولُوا انظُرْنَا وَاسْمَعُوا …﴿١٠٤

2:104 – “Yaa ayyuhal ladheena aamano, laa taqolo ra’yina wa qolu unzurna wasma’o…” (Surat Al-Baqarah)

“O you who believe! Do not say (to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)) Raina, listen to us, and say Unzurna (gaze upon us) and you listen (to him (pbuh)…” (The Cow, 2:104)

Holy Faces of Awliyaullah Bring you to their Heart, their Room of Reality

These 7 essences that dress the one (right ear), two (left ear), three (right eye), four (left eye), five (right nostril), six (left nostril), seven (mouth), lisanul haqq. That face grabs your soul, brings you into the presence. If you cannot reach the face of Prophet ﷺ, then the ulil amr (saints) – they are the faces of the nation. They’re qamarun. They’re shining moons that reflect the reality of Prophet ﷺ. So, when you look at them, they are like a door, immediately bring your soul into their heart, into their room. Who’s in their room? What Allah (AJ) described of the house of Allah (AJ)? Nabiyeen, Siddiqeen, Shuhadahi wa Saliheen.

﴾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 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 (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)

And with Allah (AJ) because we said, Qalb al mu’min baytullah. So, their house became baytullah, and who’s in their house? Nabiyeen, Siddiqeen, Shuhadayi wa Saliheen. And Allah (AJ) says this is the best of company, if you keep that. Their face bring you into their heart. That’s why your interaction with them, if you gain a sense of love and respect and character, it’s enough for their nazar to be upon you and bring you into their heart.

قَلْبَ الْمُؤْمِنْ بَيْتُ الرَّبْ

“Qalb al mu’min baytur rabb.” 

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

The Presence and Nurul Muhammadi ﷺ Is in the Hearts of Awliyaullah

From in their heart, the face, it takes you into the presence. Because who is in the presence of their heart? It’s Sayyidina Muhmmad ﷺ. That Nurul Muhammad ﷺ is in their heart, the presence of Prophet ﷺ is inside their heart. As soon as you look and they look at you, they bring your light, and your ishq into their heart, and they present you to the presence of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.

 

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ Takes you to the Divinely Essence in His Holy Heart.

If Prophet ﷺ grabs you and begins to love you, then Prophet ﷺ takes you to his essence. Who’s in the heart of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ? So, it’s like a telescope, that’s why “Innal ladhina yubayyonaka inama yubayion Allah. (Indeed, those who give Bayah (pledge allegiance) to you, – they are actually giving Bayah (pledge allegiance) to Allah.)” They can’t reach me, but ati ullah, they want to reach My Essence? Wa Ati ur Rasul, then let them obey you. And if they want to follow you, then you have to have ulil amr minkum for Prophet ﷺ.

﴾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.” (Surat Al-Fath)

“Indeed, those who give Bayah (pledge allegiance) to you, [O Muhammad] – they are actually giving Bayah (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.” (The Victory, 48:10)

It’s like a rope coming from Divine Essence. That I want to bring them into My Essence. Only rope that can reach to My Essence is Muhammadun RasulAllah ﷺ. And then Prophet ﷺ brings as a rahmah (mercy), my ulil amr (saints). They’re qamarun, they’re that full moons. Those whom are ashiqeen (lovers), not the ones who are only teaching the outside, but they don’t teach anything of their good character inside. No, no. These Ahbab un Nabi ﷺ, they’re sweet. When squeezed, when released, with everything. Their khuluq (character), is as if the khuluq of Prophet ﷺ (Qur’an, 68:4).

They don’t lie. They don’t deceive. They don’t yell and scream. It’s all based on love. It’s all based on ishq, all based on rahmah and mercy. As a result, they bring to the love and the presence of Prophet ﷺ those arwah (souls). And in the presence of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, dress them, bless them, perfect them, and take them to the reality of Allah (AJ).

We Cannot Be Tabioni (followers) Without Following Ulil Amr

In which Allah’s (AJ) Divinely presence, Qul inni kuntum tuhibbunallah, fattabiuni, Allah dress them, yuhbibkumullahu.

﴾قُلْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تُحِبُّوْنَ اللَّـهَ فَاتَّبِعُوْنِيْ يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللَّـهُ وَيَغْفِرْ‌ لَكُمْ ذُنُوْبَكُمْ ۗ وَاللَّـهُ غَفُورٌ‌ رَّ‌حِيمٌ  ﴿٣١

3:31 – “Qul in kuntum tuhibbon Allaha fattabi’oni, yuhbibkumullahu wa yaghfir lakum dhunobakum wallahu Ghaforur Raheem.” (Surat Ali-Imran)

“Say, [O Muhammad], “If you should love Allah, then follow me, [so] Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.” (Family of Imran, 3:31)

There is no way for, to be tabioni (following) without the tabi’een (followers). There’s no way to be tabioni if you’re not following ulil amr (People of the divinely Command/saints). So, the whole system of this reality of Qur’an is all pointing always to the same direction. Whatever you do, find them. If you find them, love them, have good character. They’ll bring you in through their nazar (gaze). They bring you in, they perfect your character.

Awliya’s Entire Existence is Based On Praising Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ

If their heart has the presence of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, this is a daleel (proof). If you say that you’re with Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, well you should be lost in the love and the praising of Prophet ﷺ. Could you imagine somebody who says they’re with Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, but they’re never doing durood? They are never doing the mehfil (gatherings), they are never doing the salawat (praising), they are never doing the ishq (love). What Prophet ﷺ is in there with no sound, no noise, no love?

If you’re saying Qalb al Muhammadiya ﷺ, shouldn’t you be like amazing explosions of the love of Prophet ﷺ? Everything about you should be Hub e Rasul. Everything about you should be about the praise of tazim (honour). Of the most magnificent and munificent character of Allah (AJ), creation of Allah (AJ), is Tazimun Nabi ﷺ, because the heart is, is filled with the love of Prophet ﷺ. How are they going to give the tazim (honor) of that love that’s in their heart? Has to be continuous, continuous praisings upon Prophet ﷺ. Then we know, oh those are ashiqeen (lovers). Their entire wujood (existence), their entire reality is about that.

 We pray that Allah (AJ) dress us and bless us. Easiest way to that are these nasheeds, salawats, and naat sharif. As soon we recite, we feel the love, when we, our soul begins to move into that presence.

Subhana rabbika rabbal ‘izzati ‘amma yasifoon, wa salaamun ‘alal mursaleen, walhamdulillahi rabbil ‘aalameen. Bi hurmati Muhammad al-Mustafa wa bi sirri surat al-Fatiha.
