From the Teachings of Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani as Taught by Shaykh Sayed Nurjan Mirahmadi

A’odhu billahi minash Shaytaanir rajeem
Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

InshaAllah, while the month of Baab atTauba, the first month (Muharram)… Mawlana Shaykh describing Rawze sharif.(Prophet (s)’s resting place in Madina) has a door, that they cover it now. They used to have a door to the presence of Rawze sharif, to the presence inside Sayyiduna Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)’s Rawza, and that the kings would come, and if they were sincere they would make du’a and that lock would automatically come off and they would go into Rawze sharif. And then they would clean the Rawza with rose oil, with their body, with their beard, they would clean the floor of Rawze sharif of Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), to show that they are nothing in the presence of Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). And that Baab at Tauba, that is the reality of Muharram, that we are asking to enter into the presence of Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) and they want us to enter in through Baab at-Tauba of suratut tauba (Chapter 9 of Holy Quran)

This is from the reality of the nine and the reality of the sultan of perfection, insaane Kamil… Alhamdulillah, to understand the sword in which Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) gave to Sayyidina Ali (alaihis salaam) is Zul Fiqar, that, “I am the City of ‘Ilm, the City of Knowledge, and Sayyiduna Ali is the door.”

انا مدينة العلم و علي بابها     
‘ana madinatul-ilmin wa `Aliyyun baabuha 
I am city of knowledge and `Ali is the door.

it means you cannot have, ilm al-laduni– we’re talking about heavenly knowledges, we’re not talking about accounting and math and dunya knowledges but they’re showing us, that Allah ‘Azza wa Jal is showing even in the huroof, that if you want ‘ilm, you have to come through Sayyiduna Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). He is the city of that knowledge. He is the custodian of the Kawthar, but you can’t get the ‘ilm without understanding the reality of the ‘ayn.

it means if you are not accepting the love of Sayyiduna Ali (alaihis salaam), and not accepting the love of Sayyiduna Uthman, Sayyiduna Umar, and the secret of Sayyiduna Abu Bakr As-Siddiq; it means they are the custodians of ‘ilm. They are the custodians of this reality and they begin to draw our attention, that the whole way towards the door of perfection and the door of tawba is to be nothing.

Secret of Lam Alif and Zul Fiqar

Bi sirratul lam jalala is then, in that nothingness, Allah ‘Azza wa Jal begins to show the reality of La ilaha illa-Llah Zulfiqar -Allah &  la fata ila AliMuhammadun RasoolAllah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), that Allah ‘Azza wa Jal ‘Izzah is always moving. And Allah ‘Azza wa Jal moves that alif to begin to show us what He’s going to dress from His majestic oceans of Power of all realities. So it means bi sirrat ul-lam jalala and to understand that great secret of the lam alif, that is the Zul Fiqar, it is the sword that was given to Sayyiduna Ali (alaihis salaam).

Means that every reality is within that reality of lam alif. That in the name of Allah ‘Azza wa Jal, that Allah ‘Azza wa Jal shows in ‘ilm ul-huroof, the alif dresses that lam. And that’s where the holy hadith of coming out, hadith al-qudsi, that Allah ‘Azza wa Jal described to Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), “I’m not on heaven and I’m not on earth, but I am on the heart of My believer.”

مَا وَسِعَنِيْ لَا سَمَائِيْ ولا اَرْضِيْ وَلَكِنْ وَسِعَنِيْ قَلْبِ عَبْدِيْ اَلْمُؤْمِنْ
maa wasi`anee laa Samayee, wa la ardee, laakin wasi’anee qalbi ‘Abdee alMu’min.
Neither My Heavens nor My Earth can contain Me, but the heart of my Believing Servant.

It means that this creation, this mulk, this is the mulk, this is Allah ‘Azza wa Jal’s Hidayat. Come to Allah ‘Azza wa Jal’s Hadi. The ha ه is to come to guidance, ‘cause Allah ‘Azza wa Jal clarifies for us in ma’rifa, “Don’t think the name Allah can contain Me,” ‘cause the alif moves. So the alif moves away and say, “Enough for you to understand ha ه. Come to the hidayah هداية, come to theHu guidance. I have a Hadi هادي, a guide who will bring you towards My realities.” This ha has a secret wow inside, ‘cause when you write the ha ها , they make ha and they put a wow [inside the dal shape]. And this has a wow above, is Hu هو.

This beginning and the opening of the Hu هو, that Allah ‘Azza wa Jal is describing that this hidayat, this guidance, this hadi is linked to the secret of Hu. It means that hidayat, that guidance has the secret of the wow within its heart. “My Wadud, My love,” that, “I have created all creation out of love.” And Allah ‘Azza wa Jal says, “If you come to this hidayat, come to this guidance, that is the reality of Muhammadun RasoolAllah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam).” That to come, ‘cause we covered the lam; lam ل is the tongue.

The Laams ل in the Name of Allah (aj) الله

Why Lam ل Represents Mulk 

ل As soon as the lam – and the shaykhs will say it’s a mulk, the reason it’s a mulk ملك is that creation, is because it’s now manifested through the tongue. If you say it, it now exists. If you didn’t say it, it didn’t exist. So when Allah ‘Azza wa Jal wants from the hidden, that you don’t know, when He wants it to be known, He merely gives the order to Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), the Tongue of Truth (Lisanul Haq), “Speak, Qul!” And immediately the soul of Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) speaks the reality and this creation comes into existence and manifests.

So then Allah ‘Azza wa Jal begins to describe that this, first, for the two understandings, the world of form and the world of subtleties, every created form is under this sefat (attribute). This lam is under this reality, this is under sefatur Rahman. Every other creation in the world of subtlety is under sefat ar Raheem, that it’s in the akhirah.

Means that everything, Ar-Rahman al-Arsh ath thawa, that Allah ‘Azza wa Jal showing even in the huroof it’s a chair, looks like a chair. Al-Arsh ath-thawa means that Allah ‘Azza wa Jal has come upon the throne; the throne signifies power. Allah ‘Azza wa Jal can’t sit, we are not the people who render Allah ‘Azza wa Jal into a form. La sharik, la shabi!

الرَّ‌حْمَـٰنُ عَلَى الْعَرْ‌شِ اسْتَوَىٰ ٥

20:5 – ArRahmanu ‘alal ‘arshi istawa.

The Most Merciful [who is] above the Throne established. (Surat Taha 20:5)

Allah ‘Azza wa Jal is teaching by analogy, that you”ll see the deeper reality within the huroof, that this mulk, that is closest Arsh - light in the centerto you, you have to come through hidayat, come to the creation of the world of form. You have to use your body, you can’t understand angels when you don’t know yourself. You can’t understand the heavenly kingdom until you know yourself. Means you see the signs of Allah ‘Azza wa Jal in the world of form. You go to the ocean, you see the greatness of Allah ‘Azza wa Jal; you look at the skies, you see the greatness of Allah ‘Azza wa Jal; you see the animals and reproduction and all this creation, you see the greatness of Allah ‘Azza wa Jal. So say, “Subhanallah! How all of this is manifesting?”

Means that from that understanding of Ar-Rahman, Allah ‘Azza wa Jal say, “My Power upon the Throne,” means, “My ‘Izzah, My alif is the power of that lam,” means this is another way of writing lam alif: that the interaction between the Tongue of Truth and ‘Izzatullah, and the crossing of that.

Means that brings into the reality of qaab al-qawsayni wa adna. This is now the opening bi sirrat ul-lam jalala. Means the power of Allah ‘Azza wa Jal’s Might, how to harness that might, how to harness that reality, that sword, it’s owner is Sayyiduna Ali (alaihis salaam).

You cannot get the ‘ilm without the love and the respect for Sayyiduna Ali (alaihis salaam). Means Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) teaching, that’s what he wanted us to understand that: if the knowledge that you are looking for is the Muhammadan reality, then Sayyiduna Ali (alaihis salaam) is the door, so come with love and respect to that door, that Sayyiduna Ali to dress you within the city, then of the reality of the Companions.

That means the highest level is to respect the family and to respect the Companions. The Companions on the outer level will begin to perfect our character, to be siddiqiya character, to be truthful character. Imitate us like Ashab an-Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), with love, respect, integrity means the companionship perfection of our being. Then they take us to the door.

That door of ‘ilm and knowledge is to be dressed by Allah’s ancient ‘Aleem, ‘cause now the ‘ilm gets a ya for yaqeen, thatAleem we want Allah’s ancient Knowledges to dress us. All of them ending in meem because the reality of it is from Sayyiduna Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam).

Then they are teaching for us, if you want that knowledge, then take the path of lam jalala. Means the reality of lam alif is negate yourself, negate yourself, negate yourself; then every hardship in your life becomes a hikmah. Where if you don’t negate, what is negate yourself? Means Allah going to through difficulty to you. ‘Cause as much as you become a Buddah, as much as you become something of yourself, importance given to you by yourself, by people around you, by everything, Allah ‘Azza wa Jal’s Rahmah is: I’m going to bring you back down.

So the way of negation is la, la, la, la, “Ya Rabbi I’m nothing,” that, “let me to enter into your oceans of realities.” So then this Baab at-Tauba begins to open bi sirrat al-lam jalala. It shows you that the la represents qaab al-qawsayni wa adna. That, just these two powers of La ilaha illa-Llah Muhammadun RasoolAllah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) comes together is now a nukht, ‘cause later in the knowledges we follow the nukht, where all of Qur’an in Fatiha- thirty juz- all thirty juz in Fatiha, all Fatiha in Bismillahir rahmanir raheem, all Bismillahir rahmanir raheem in the ba, all the power of the ba, at the bottom is the nukht.

So many times you’ll go to a zahwiya and they’ll have; it’s enough. That’s the secret of entire Qur’an, is unfolding from that ba, becoming Bismillahir rahmanir raheem, becoming Fatiha and opening up to Holy Qur’an. Means that all of that ‘izzah is in that nukht.

So later in the huroof we begin to follow how that nuqt (dot) is honouring the different letters. We don’t want to start now ‘cause then we make you confusing, but it comes over the he and the ha and becomes a kha, means the khalifa; goes to the middle of the he, becomes a jeem from the reality of Sayyiduna Jibra’il who was carrying the knowledges and the revelation to bring to Sayyiduna Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam).

Mean it begin to show us that Allah ‘Azza wa Jal is bringing in a deep reality, that when these two realities come together, ‘khalaq al-insaana min ‘alaq’, that every creation is created by Allah ‘Azza wa Jal’s ancient Knowledges. Allah’s ancient ‘Aleem comes to the Tongue of Truth, and becomes qaaf wal Qur’an al-Majeed.

ق ۚ وَالْقُرْ‌آنِ الْمَجِيدِ ١
50:1 – Qaf, wal Quranil Majeed.

Qaf. By the honored Qur’an. (Surat Qaf 50:1)

‘Alaq, they say, oh it’s a clinging clot that sticks to the womb. Well this is for you. In Allah’s timeless reality, ‘alaq, what are the huroofs? The ‘ayn is Allah’s ancient ‘Aleem, again the lam is then the Tongue of Truth has spoken that reality from Allah’s ancient Knowledges. If it’s to bring creation into existence, that reality of Sayyiduna Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), Insaan al-Kaamil, the perfected reality of the souls and lights begins to reveal Holy Qur’an.

From ‘izzat ul-Qur’an, qaaf wal Qur’an al-Majeed, creation will come, ‘cause Allah ‘Azza wa Jal saying, “Khalaq al-insaana min ‘alaq,” that it’s been created by a knowledge, that merely Allah ‘Azza wa Jal bestows the knowledge and then the souls that have these knowledges, these realities are manifested. I’m not sitting there like a toy soldier and putting it altogether by hand. It’s Divinely Knowledges. So when Allah ‘Azza wa Jal saying ‘khalaq al-insaana min ‘alaq’, that, “I have created insaan,” ‘cause you are trying to find yourself before you understand Allah’s creation.

خَلَقَ الْإِنسَانَ مِنْ عَلَقٍ ﴿٢
92:2 -Khalaqal insana min ‘alaq. (Surat Al ‘Alaq)
Created Human from a clinging substance. (Holy Quran, The Clot 92:2)

Letters of Qalb (Heart) قلب Qul Ba (Say Ba) ق ل ب

If Allah saying, “I created you from Knowledges,” then later describes that, do you think who’s harder to build: you or theHeart shape with light fragments of the heavens. How many billions of galaxies, all of that with ancient Knowledges manifesting through the Tongue of Truth; it’s qaaf wal Qur’an al-Majeed. That’s why it’s qalb, it’s qalb: qaaf, lam, ba. That’s why it’s a heart, there’s no heart sitting in the heavens. It’s for us to understand the direction.

Allah ‘Azza wa Jal says, “My Qaaf is manifesting on the Tongue of Truth, and becoming the ba, it’s a qalb,” and this is the qalb. This is the reality of the qalb, that Allah ‘Azza wa Jal say, “I’m not in heaven and I’m not on earth, but I’m on the heart of My believer.”

مَا وَسِعَنِيْ لَا سَمَائِيْ ولا اَرْضِيْ وَلَكِنْ وَسِعَنِيْ قَلْبِ عَبْدِيْ اَلْمُؤْمِنْ
maa wasi`anee laa Samayee, wa la ardee, laakin wasi’anee qalbi ‘Abdee alMu’min.
Neither My Heavens nor My Earth can contain Me, but the heart of my Believing Servant.

Who’s Allah’s believer? Allah’s Hidayat, Allah’s Hadi, is the soul of the prophets, is represented by the soul of Sayyiduna Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), is the believer of Allah ‘Azza wa Jal. That, that qaaf, that power is manifesting: ‘khalaq al-insaana min ‘alaq’.

 عَلَّمَ الْقُرْ‌آنَ ﴿٢﴾ خَلَقَ الْإِنسَانَ ٣

55:1-2 – ‘Allamal Qur’an. Khalaqal Insaan. (Surat Ar Rahman)
It is He Who has taught the Qur’an. He has created Man. (The Beneficient 55: 1-2)

Then Allah ‘Azza wa Jal describes in Suratur-Rahman, “’Alam al-Qur’an, khalaq al-insaan,” again the same thing, to confirm. ‘Alam [you that know Arabic, they get confused], ‘alam al-Qur’an: ‘ayn to the lam. ‘Cause to be taught means Allah ‘AzzaHoly Quran in the Sky wa Jal was conveying a knowledge: ‘‘Alam al-Qur’an’, ‘ayn lam qaaf, ‘khalaq al-insaan’. So confirms ‘khalaq min ‘alaq’, ‘cause Allah ‘Azza wa Jal confirming that on your ma’rifa, that there’s no ancient Knowledges bringing creation. And then Suratur-Rahman, because these are ibaadur-Rahman, these are the souls in which Allah ‘Azza wa Jal has given them a Divinely rank and a Divinely reality.

What Allah ‘Azza wa Jal is describing now that, “I’ve taught you these,” that, “from My ancient Knowledges, We taught you the Holy Qur’an,” means you’ve been dressed from Sefat al ‘Aleem, you’ve been dressed from Holy Qur’an. “Then we created your form as We created all form from these oceans of Knowledge.” All of that is bi sirrat al- lam jalala.

Then, into understanding the self, because you cannot understand the heavens and the earth if you don’t understand yourself. Then they begin to teach us, that you have two of these lam alifs: upper lam alif and your lower lam alif. Lower lam alif because every time lam alif comes, creation is born, teaching your lower lam alif is the creation of your form.

So in this lam alif, what do you see? ……… that, when the two come together and Allah ‘Azza wa Jal permits the miracle what happens? There’s a nukht now in the belly: pregnancy. Means that when that reality is going to manifest in creation, there’s now a tremendous secret on your form that has to do with your lower opening. The man gets together with the woman, the woman is now the custodian of that reality, that within her belly [you see the lam alif?], from the point of conception into the belly, is the secret of bahr ul-qudra, just like we said here.

وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنسَانَ مِن سُلَالَةٍ مِّن طِينٍ ١٢
23:12 – Wa laqad khalaqnal Insana min sulalatin min Teen. (Surat Al Muminoon)

And certainly did We create man from an extract of clay. (The Believers 23:12)

Khalaqal insaanu min teen [we won’t add more huroof because then, everything becomes confusing!]. But the Muhammadan reality (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) is that Allah ‘Azza wa Jal is allowing that creation and His Knowledges to come, that in the world of form, that when that male and that woman come together, the release of that fluid is the secret of that bahr ul-qudra within her womb. That with ancient Knowledge of ‘alaq khalaq al-insaana min ‘alaq means there must be malaa’ikahh within the womb of the woman, and those malaa’ikah have a knowledge. ‘Cause Allah ‘Azza wa Jal not in there, sitting slowly making things and putting them together. Allah ‘Azza wa Jal, it’s a knowledge, “I bestowed that knowledge to the malaa’ikah. They are of service.” But for the malaa’ikah to have that knowledge means it may, it had to have come from Sayyiduna Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam).

Everything comes from La ilaha illa-Llah Muhammadun RasoolAllah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), that the angels, they serve Sayyiduna Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). Means the angels serve Bani Adam (alaihis salaam), means we taught them isma kullaha, for Sayyiduna Adam (alaihis salaam).

وَعَلَّمَ آدَمَ الْأَسْمَاءَ كُلَّهَا ثُمَّ عَرَ‌ضَهُمْ عَلَى الْمَلَائِكَةِ فَقَالَ أَنبِئُونِي بِأَسْمَاءِ هَـٰؤُلَاءِ إِن كُنتُمْ صَادِقِينَ ٣١
2:31 – Wa ‘allama Adamal Asma a kullaha, thumma ‘aradahum ‘alal Malaikati faqala anbioonee bi asma i haola e
in kuntum sadiqeen.

And He taught Adam the names – all of them. Then He showed them to the angels and said, “Inform Me of the names of these, if you are truthful.” (The Cow, 2:31)

What you think Allah ‘Azza wa Jal describing Sayyiduna Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)? That he is the custodian of all the realities and all Knowledges, the malaa’ikah (angels) work for Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). They’re under the command of Sayyiduna Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) means the malaikah must be in the womb of the woman and fostering that creation, bringing that into a world of form, with what, khalaq al-insaana min ‘alaq. Allah ‘Azza wa Jal’s ancient Knowledges that allows that clot to form and that manifestation, means that lam alif, its sirr for the body.

Secret of Lam Alif and Birth of Creation

Then you have a reality of lam alif that we say with the upper part but it has to do with the soul. Again, another entry point, that when the reality of the soul is born, it is a secret of lam jalala, that Allah ‘Azza wa Jal allows that Muhammadan light to approach qaab al qawsayni wa adna (two bow length or nearer), and souls are born. Souls are born, ar-Ruh il-Wahid. It must be coming from the oceans of Muhammadun RasoolAllah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), otherwise everything would be different oceans. Everything comes from La ilaha illa-Llah, ‘Izzatuallah hits Muhammdun RasoolAllah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) the reality, and creation is born.

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. (The Star 53:9)

Where to describe the light of Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)’s soul, and drops of sweat were forming. As every drop of sweat, from the Nazar and the Tajalli of Allah ‘Azza wa Jal, creation coming into existence. Means that when this reality of Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) approaches the Divine reality of qaab al-qawsayni wa adna, the sweat of it is bringing creation into existence, these are drops of creation that are coming.

Discipline the Body and Soul with Pillars of Islam and Iman

It means then there must be a secret of the soul and a secret of the body. How to bring that whole reality is then going to be the secret of Insaan al-Kaamil, that as you have a reality for your soul for lam alif, you have a reality of your body bringing the two into control. Means that whatever you give of power to your soul, it will discipline the body. If you don’t have a discipline upon your soul, you will not have a discipline upon your body.

It means as much as you discipline the soul, that’s why then the importance of all the Pillars of Islam, where Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) brought all of these Pillars of Islam was to discipline the body. Because the principles of faith have to do with the secret of the soul. But you have to follow the Pillars of Islam, pillars why? Because they tie down the body. They tame the animal desire, they tame the bad desire so that the reality of the soul can grab the reality of the body and bring it in towards perfection.

DNA - Lam Alif - close upEven again in lam alif the smallest of understandings, where again you see lam alif [is this a good picture of a double helix, There you see like a double helix], means even in the double helix is the secret of lam alif. ‘Cause Allah ‘Azza wa Jal showing that your smallest and minute reality, what they call DNA, which stands for dunya. But, dal nun ya, dunya, means your manifestation is based on lam alif.

When they are seeing a double helix, what they are beginning to understand is only a small drop of lam alif, that you are, manifestation is from ‘Izzatullah but from the oceans of Muhammadun RasoolAllah, and you are manifested. ‘Cause you cannot be manifesting just from La ilaha illa-Llah, ‘cause the phrase implies ‘don’t look here’. That, “Ya Rabbi, where am I from, where am I from? Am I from you?”

Allah ‘Azza wa Jal says, “No, no. You say La ilaha illa-Llah. There is nothing but Allah here,” but you are from the ocean of Muhammadun RasoolAllah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). This is the ocean of creation.

“Who knows himself will know his Lord.” If we don’t know ourself, we have no way of understanding our Lord. Every hadith of Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) is going to open up deep realities.

مَنْ عَرَفَ نَفْسَهْ فَقَدْ عَرَفَ رَبَّهُ

“Man ‘arafa nafsahu faqad ‘arafa Rabbahu”
“Who knows himself, knows his Lord.” Prophet Muhammad (saws)

It means in the way of ma’rifa, ya Rabbi, where do I belong? Do I belong to La ilaha illa-Llah? Say, “No, the phrase is very clear: nothing, ”there is no divinity”, means no station or rank of who you think you are, ”but Allah.” Don’t look here. But then we are from the people who say La ilaha illa-Llah Muhammadun RasoolAllah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), then Allah ‘Azza wa Jal says, “Correct,”. It means that is a Ruh al-Wahid, that is the One ocean, that all souls are coming from, that all souls will go back. Every reality is in that ocean manifesting, and when the manifestation is finished it goes back (to that ocean).

Atoms and Bahrul Qudra

It means then the bahr ul-qudra and the atomic reality is moving, and we are a mere manifestation. So even scientists now,Human image of light - Atoms manifest are understanding bahr ul-qudra, the ocean of Power. They describe our existence as the ocean of Power ‘cause they say we are no more than just atoms, that no matter what we think of our form, we are just spinning atoms, spinning, spinning, spinning. This is an ocean of Power. Because of the hologram of the spinning, it’s appearing as something, where Allah ‘Azza wa Jal says, “Then Our duty is, that you are in the world of appearances.” You are appearing as something ‘cause of the spin. Negate yourself, and say, “I’m nothing, I’m nothing, I’m nothing.”

So then we serve, we clean, we be nothing, we be nothing and Allah ‘Azza wa Jal sends tests. In that nothingness, this begins to crash. If it crashes, it doesn’t become non-existent. It goes back into the oceans of Power, and begins to understand the reality of the ocean of Power, that everything is in that ocean. Everything is given a recitation, a chant, and manifesting. Means this is in the ocean of Power, this is in the ocean of Power, this is in the ocean of Power. You switch the different molecules around, you have what? You switch them around you have carpet, you switch them around, you have plastic. Means everything around us is an ocean of Power.

Then the way of la, lam jalala, is to negate. As much as we negate and to be nothing, as much as we ask to be nothing, then move into that ocean and move into the love of Sayyiduna Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), from the love of Sayyiduna Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), that Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) takes us to the heart. Upon the heart of Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) is then beginning the opening of the reality of La ilaha illa-Llah. Means with that qudra, with the power, they are able to contemplate and taffakur. With that power and with that understanding, Allah ‘Azza wa Jal opens from ‘Izzatullah, means opens up from Divinely Might and Divinely Oceans, that they exist within the heart of Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). They exist within the oceans of Light and Power, and from that ‘Izzah Allah ‘Azza wa Jal dressed them and their souls become powerful souls, blessed souls.

InshaAllah, Allah ‘Azza wa Jal open for us in these holy months, Mawlana Shaykh open for us in these holy months.

Subhana rabbika rabbil ‘izzati ‘amma yasifoon, wa salaamun ‘alal mursaleen, walhamdulillahi rabbil ‘aalameen.
