The 7 Points of the Head

a Gateway to the 9 Points of the Body

Building Up Your Energy and Trying to Keep It 


Shaykh al-Kamel: The Complete Guide

Example of Complete Perfection – Look to Him to See Your Example

When God wants to manifest Himself, He looks at His creation. His first attention goes to human beings because they resemble him. Those who resemble Him the most among them are the saints; hence the Prophet ﷺ said of them, ‘They remind you of the Divine.’ [Hds]

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، قَالَ: عَنِ النّبِيّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ  قَالَ: “خَلَقَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ آدَمَ على صُورَتِهِ طُولُهُ سِتُّونَ ذِرَاعاً،…”

 [أخرج البخاري ومسلم]

‘An Abi Hurayrah (RA) ‘an anNabi (saws) Qala: “Khalaqa Allahu (AJ) Adama ‘ala suratihi toluhu settona zera’an,….”

Abu Hurayrah narrated that the Prophet (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Allah (AJ) created Adam in His image, and he was sixty cubits tall. …’ [Al-Bukhaari (6227) and Muslim (2841)]

“We also pity you because human beings are unwilling to open themselves to attract the angelic power by which they reach the state of heavenly knowledge that is their inheritance. That makes us appear in your human form in varying shapes and degrees of light, in different places and to different ages of human life, to remind you that you have been honored with an angelic power and a divine likeness.”

Keep the likeness! Use the angelic power! It shall elevate you to that luminous station without which God said, ‘Verily, those for whom God did not appoint light, they will never inherit light!’ (24:40) and He said, ‘Light upon light!’ (24:35)

﴾وَمَن لَّمْ يَجْعَلِ اللَّـهُ لَهُ نُورًا فَمَا لَهُ مِن نُّورٍ ۗ ﴿٤٠…

24:40 – “… wa mal lam yaj’a lillahu lahu noora famaa lahu min noor” (Surat An-Nur)

…And he to whom Allah has not granted light – for him there is no light.” (The Light, 24:40)


﴾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-Noor)

“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)

He declared that the light of the heart’s vision must be connected with the light of angelic power, ensuring success and guidance to all human beings. That light shall then appear over the entire human realm like a rising sun and a rising moon over all of creation, without ever setting. The light of this power, at that time, will make every individual like a moon. That is, a heavenly body that will reflect the original light for the rest of creation. By this light, this world will be preserved, the love of nature will rule the earth, and everyone will live in peace and love swimming in the ocean of angelic beauty and harmony.”

﴾وَلَقَدْ ذَرَأْنَا لِجَهَنَّمَ كَثِيرًا مِّنَ الْجِنِّ وَالْإِنسِ ۖ لَهُمْ قُلُوبٌ لَّا يَفْقَهُونَ بِهَا وَلَهُمْ أَعْيُنٌ لَّا يُبْصِرُونَ بِهَا وَلَهُمْ آذَانٌ لَّا يَسْمَعُونَ بِهَا ۚ أُولَـٰئِكَ كَالْأَنْعَامِ بَلْ هُمْ أَضَلُّ ۚ أُولَـٰئِكَ هُمُ الْغَافِلُونَ ﴿١٧٩

7:179 – “Wa laqad zara’naa li jahannama kaseeram minal jinni wal insi lahum quloobul laa yafqahoona bihaa wa lahum a’yunul laa yubisiroona bihaa wa lahum aazaanul laa yasma’oona bihaa; ulaaa’ika kal an’aami bal hum adall; ulaaa’ika humul ghaafiloon” (Surat Al-Ar’af)

“Many are the Jinn’s and men we have made for Hell: They have hearts wherewith they understand not, eyes wherewith they see not, and ears wherewith they hear not. They are like cattle,- nay more misguided: for they are heedless (of warning).” (The Heights, 7:179)

1-2 Ears: Door to the Soul

[Harmful Effects

  • Approach your Lord from the door.
  • Hearing is the first order.
  • We heard the message and we accept.
  • This is the Divine doorway to the soul. Evilness knows this, so what is so prevalent now.
  • Horrible sounds that are being pumped into the ears and blocking the doorway to the soul. Everyone has a walkman like pouring cement on the doorway.
  • Attempting to darken and harm that reality.]

Protection for Ears

  • Approach the Divine by the door not the window.
  • Protection for this opening is to listen to your inner voice or conscious is most important first step towards inner realities is to hear your angelic beings assisting you.
  • Hear only Qur’an or salawat – holy recitation or praising of the prophets of the Divine, melodies that remind you of love and tranquility.
  • Love and holy recitations are rocket fuel for the soul.

3-4 Eyes: Window to the Soul

Harmful Effects

  • [Eyes are desire for dunya or materialism.
  • Have you heard the expression your eyes are ‘hungry’?
  • The Divine showing us thru our technology.
  • If you allow your computer to endlessly capture images especially negative ones, your hard drive will ‘crash’.
  • Your heart is already crashing with endless negative, horror, violence, pornographic or vulgar images.
  • All images are saved and difficult to purge. Forgetting images is very difficult.]

 Protection for Eyes

  • To take away dunya or materialism, one must:
    • Close the eyes often and meditate.
    • Protection of this opening is to reduce the intake of harmful images.
    • See only good, read holy scriptures – those are images to remember.
    • Close your eyes to the material world and ask for the Divine to open eyes of the heart.

5-6 Nostrils: Divine Breath, Nafas Rahma

Divine Gift of Life in the Breath

([The most important mission for the seeker in this order is to safeguard his breath, and he who cannot safeguard his breath, it would be said of him, ‘he lost himself.’]

Shah Naqshband (q) said, “This order is built on breath. So, it is a must for everyone to safeguard his breath in the time of his inhalation and exhalation and further, to safeguard his breath in the interval between the inhalation and exhalation.”

[Don’t be heedless: the Gift of Life is ‘24ooo breaths in each day’. ] Our lives on Earth are one breath away. All the planning in the world won’t change when it is our last breath. Praise the Divine life which is in each breath. Hu Allah inhale and Hu exhale. [Evilness wishes to fill this channel with cigarettes or drugs to come against this Divine gift of breath.]

7 – The Mouth and Tongue of Truth (Lisanul Haq)

[Mawlana Bistami: He said, “For thirty years, when I wanted to remember Allah (AJ) and do zikr, I used to wash my tongue and my mouth for His glorification.”] The Tongue of Truth is the holy passage of sustenance and power for human beings.

[That is why the Divine orders fasting:

  • It is the highest action one can do with highest reward from the Divine.
  • When you decide to really fast:
    • Purify all hearing, seeing, breathing, touching
  • All Your 5 Senses you are submitting to your Lord, then your 5 levels of the heart will be also submitting to the Divine.
  • He will open for you from the “Tongue of Truth”.]

(وَوَهَبْنَا لَهُم مِّن رَّحْمَتِنَا وَجَعَلْنَا لَهُمْ لِسَانَ صِدْقٍ عَلِيًّا (٥٠

19:50 – “Wa wahabna lahum min rahmatina wa ja’alna lahum lisana Sidqin ‘Aliya.” (Surat Maryam)

“And We bestowed of Our Mercy on them, and We granted them lofty honour from/on the tongue of truth.”

[The Divine’s highest gift is the gift of wisdom. The one who has the power to revive the dead – the dead souls, that are in need of heavenly realities.]

﴾يُؤْتِي الْحِكْمَةَ مَن يَشَاءُ ۚ وَمَن يُؤْتَ الْحِكْمَةَ فَقَدْ أُوتِيَ خَيْرًا كَثِيرًا ۗ وَمَا يَذَّكَّرُ إِلَّا أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ ﴿٢٦٩

2:269 – “Yu’til Hikmata mai yasha o; wa mai yutal Hikmata faqad otiya khairan kaseeraa; wa maa yazzakkaru illaa ulul albaab.” (Surat Al-Baqarah)

“He gives wisdom to whom He wills, and whoever has been given wisdom has certainly been given abundant goodness. And none will remember except those of understanding.” (The Cow, 2:269)

Protection for The Mouth & Tongue

Safeguarding the mouth:

  • This is a holy opening where the tongue testifies to the Lord’s Oneness.
  • The Tongue of Truth and power of speech.
  • Eating only Divinely prescribed foods
  • Abstaining from forbidden beverages and foods.
  • Speaking good words – truthfulness
  • Reduce anger
  • Keeping tongue moist in zikrullah or essential remembrance.
  • Secret of siwak, tooth stick, is the grounding wood for taking negative energies out of the mouth.

Because He said, “Wa in min shayyin illa yusabhih bihamidiwa laakin laa tafqahoona tasbihahum…” It means everything is existing in it’s praise – even a rock is praising. It has atomic energy.

﴾تُسَبِّحُ لَهُ السَّمَاوَاتُ السَّبْعُ وَالْأَرْضُ وَمَن فِيهِنَّ ۚ وَإِن مِّن شَيْءٍ إِلَّا يُسَبِّحُ بِحَمْدِهِ وَلَـٰكِن لَّا تَفْقَهُونَ تَسْبِيحَهُمْ ۗ إِنَّهُ كَانَ حَلِيمًا غَفُورًا ﴿٤٤

17:44 – “Tusabbihu lahus samawatus sab’u wal ardu wa man fee hinna wa in min shayin illa yusabbihu bihamdihi wa lakin la tafqahoona tasbeehahum innahu kana haleeman ghafoora.” (Surat Al-Isra)

“The seven heavens and the earth and whatever is in them exalt [praises] Him. And there is not a thing except that it exalts [Allah] by His praise, but you do not understand their [way of] exalting. Indeed, He is ever Forbearing and Forgiving.” (The Night Journey 17:44)

Harmful Effects

[The mouth is the canal for energy and sustenance for the maintenance of your being. As soon as you eat, 32 teeth are crunching down on the food filled with energies.

  • Then that energy is divided amongst 16 teeth take the good energy.
  • 16 teeth take the bad energy.
  • That energy is then dispersed into the body mainly sent to the heart and the stomach.
  • Garbage foods, forbidden beverages, and bad words: cursing, yelling, shouting, anger are poisons in the mouth and then sent to all the body.
  • Leading cause of heart disease and all illnesses of the intestines
  • The Prophet’s ﷺ prayer for siwak in mouth, ‘O my Lord, protect my heart from bad character, anger and associating anything with you.’ This was the prayer when he used the tooth stick showing that too much badness enters from the mouth.] [dua]
    اَللَّهُمَّ طَهِرْ قَلْبِيْ مِنَّ الشِّرْكِ الخَفِيْ وَالنِّفَاق“Allahumma tahhir qalbi minash shirk khafi wan nifaaq”
    “O Allah! Purify my heart from hidden polytheism and hypocrisy.”

The Crown of the Head is  Safetguarded with a Cover

The process of submission will return humans to the image of the Divine. It is the image of honour, love, respect and chivalry. That energy is directed to the crown of the head. It is safeguarded with a cover. The Shaykh’s head cover stresses the importance of covering the top and the triangle taj or hat under the turban cloth is pointing to the heavens showing that Islam and iman leads to ihsan (Religion + Faith = Moral Excellence)

You can imagine an energy connection into the spiritual heart of the universe from your crown lataif / chakra while intending that you be aligned with the highest soul purpose while staying well connected to the physical plane.

Imagine energy from above all focusing to one point on the top the turban and like a condensed laser light entering the crown lataif or chakra.

You are contained within yourself and connected to Earth and the physical and to spiritual source at the same time in a harmonious balance with the universe.

Focusing energy from heavens to crown of head. Turban cloth is the burial shroud of the seeker to remind him that this life is temporary and that the hereafter is the permanent eternal abode.

Hair on head: For men, hair on the head diminishes spiritual power and increases vanity and pride as in the jungle where male animals adorn themselves to attract females. Humanity is not like animals, the Divine role for men is to serve the Divine Kingdom. The nobility of a man is in the crown upon his head.

Beard: This is the spiritual power of heavenly men. Angels will flock to the beard and anoint those hairs with angelic powers.

The Secrets of the Mouth

The mouth is the holy opening for sustenance, breathing, speaking. The Prophet’s ﷺ teaching that controlling the opening of the mouth is of highest concern and can earn tremendous reward or eternal doom. [Hds Trns’n]

عَنْ نَافِعِ عَنْ اِبْنِ عُمَرَ، قَالَ، قَالَ رَسُولُ الله : رَحِمَ عَبْداً تَكَلَّمَ فَغَنِمَ، أَوْ سَكَتَ فَسَلِمَ. إِنَّ اللِّسَانَ أَمْلَكُ شَيْءٍ لِلإِنْسَانَ، أَلاَ وَ إِنَّ كَلاَمَ الْعَبْدِ كُلَّهُ عَلَيْهِ، إِلاَّ ذِكْرُ اللٌّهِ تَعَالـى، اَوْ أَمْرٌ بِمَعْرُوف، أَوْ نَهْى عَنْ مُنْكَر، أَوْ إِصْلاَحٌ بَيْنَ الْمُؤْمِنينَ. فَقَال لَهُ مُعَاذُ بْنُ جَبَل: يَا رَسُولَ اللٌّهِ، اَنُؤَاخِذُ بِمَا نَتَكَلَّمُ؟ فَقَالَ: وَ هَلْ يَكُبُّ النَّاسَ عَلى مَنَاخِرِهِمْ فِي النَّارِ، إِلاَّ حَصَائِدُ أَلْسِنَتِهِمْ، فَمَنْ أَرَادَ السَّلاَمَةَ، فَلْيَحْفَظْ مَا جَرى بِهِ لِسَانُهُ

It has been narrated from Nafi’ from b. ‘Umar that he said, the Messenger of Allah (s) said, “May (Allah) have mercy on that servant who gains benefit when he speaks, or one who is protected through maintaining silence. Surely the tongue is the thing which wields the most authority over a person. Be aware that everything that servant speaks is against him, except for the remembrance of Allah, the High, or the commanding of others to that which is right or preventing them from that which is evil, or setting the affair right between two believers.” 

Safeguarded Your Mouth With Siwak (Tooth Stick)

The food we eat is filled with energy. Radio waves, electromagnetic radiation, whatever is in the atmosphere and emitting from creation is absorbed in the food we eat, air we breath. This energy collects in the mouth and will try to be absorbed by the teeth and then sent into the body where it will go to the heart and into the blood and then to the stomach area. If this energy is bad or overwhelming negative energy then physical and spiritual sickness occur. Enmity destroys teeth. Bad energies darken and weaken the heart and poison the body.

The siwak is a grounding stick that will draw out negative energy from the mouth. If negative energy is in the mouth, one’s words are like fire. When positive energy in the mouth, it is like sweetness that people make take benefit from.

The Prophet’s ﷺ prayer was, ‘O my Lord, clean my heart from bad thoughts and action and anger’.

  • اَللَّهُمَّ طَهِرْ قَلْبِيْ مِنَّ الشِّرْكِ الخَفِيْ وَالنِّفَاق“Allahumma tahhir qalbi minash shirk khafi wan nifaaq”
    “O Allah! Purify my heart from hidden polytheism and hypocrisy.”

When we use the siwak (tooth stick), it is made from the root of certain trees. Later, we will find that the highest reward from the Divine is the “fast”. The Divine is showing us that this mouth that testifies to His Oneness and the tongue that sings His praise is a tremendous opening safeguard it for the highest opening of the heart is based on its preservation.

The Power of the Ring and Safeguarding It

The blessed ring is worn on the right hand, second finger near pinky. The purpose of the ring is a protection against enmity, which is a very powerful negative force. Unfortunately, human creation does not understand the gift of energy or what we call life that was given to us. This atomic energy is always flowing. When we feel good, others in our ocean of energy will feel good.

‘Be with the righteous’ for they are the best of company because they will enlighten you.

﴾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)

But if someone is negative, they will send out the negativity to people causing many sicknesses. Prophet Muhammad ﷺ taught that the use of the ring on the right hand takes away enmity. [Hds]

People of the Right are Ashab al Yamin, they are blessed. Preferable stones for rings are amber or turquoise.  For men, silver or steel base rings with no gold. The left hand is used for cleaning the unclean (restroom).

  • Amber – an electromagnetic gem that opens the solar plexus lataif chakra and can aid in enhancing and balancing moods, obtaining mental clarity, and confidence. It can also be used to purify or detoxify
  • Turquoise – general healer, multi-purpose, relieves many negative emotions, increases psychic connections, divination, communication, creativity, serenity, uplifting, soothes and calms

The Cane and Grounding Your Energy

It is your grounding mechanism to take from heavens and send negative to the Earth. “Grounding”: two feet and one cane like modern day electrical prong. This was the way of all Divine Messengers.

By now, we are seeing that the Divine Presence sent messengers to teach scriptures, laws, morals but most of all how to reach perfection to return to the angelic state in which we where created. You are undoubtedly familiar with electrical grounding energy and its properties, through your experience with sunshine. It is a warming, expansive kind of energy, which can make you feel open, contented, and encompassed or held.

On the other hand, too much electrical energy coming in can make you feel lightheaded, disoriented, burned out (“fried”), or jumpy and irritable. Too much (or not enough) heavenly energy may make you crave sugar. Too much (or not enough) earth energy may announce itself through cravings for salt.

The Eternal Struggle Between Energy of the Heavens & Energy of the Earth

How To Balance and Safeguard Oneself

This symbol expresses a continuous flow of qudra or power in a circular direction as it generates the two opposing forces of positive and negative, darkness and light, heaven and earth, man and woman. (Binary: Active 1, Passive 0)

These forces interact to balance each other’s excesses and to bring into existence the physical and metaphysical realms.

 The yin and yang represent all the opposite principles one finds in the universe.

  • Under yang (Active or 1) are the principles of maleness, the sun, creation, heat, light, heaven, dominance, and so on, and
  • under yin (Passive 0) are the principles of femaleness, the moon, completion, cold, darkness, material forms, submission, and so on.
  • Each of these opposites produce the other

Grounding in the Elemental Self

Your body is a transformer of energy. You bring in electrical energy from the cosmos. You bring in magnetic energy from the earth, and your body mixes and uses these two energies, generally within the areas of the naval button and heart.

The lower part of the body is the entryway for a lot of the magnetic energy. That is what you might consider to be “earth grounding” energy. And the top of your head and back of the neck is the usual doorway for the electrical or “sky grounding” energy.

In you, earth and heavens meet and mingle. It is your nature to blend these two as fuel for your life here on the planet.

That is why you have a physicality that requires earthly energy. You also have a soul that requires heavenly energy.

Earth energy is also something we are sure you know well. It is heavy and solid. It is slow, stately and reassuring. If you lie on the ground for a while, feeling the solidity of earth, the support of the ground beneath you, the heaviness of being a physical creature – that is magnetic energy. Too much of it can make you feel confused, lazy, logy, or sleepy.

Heavenly Emanation Raining Down Upon You

Earthly energies coming thru the contact with the earth are forces clashing within the abdomen. The Prophet ﷺ warned us that all sickness starts from the stomach for both males and females.

اَلْمِعْدَةُ بَيْتُ الدَّاءِ وَالْحِمْيَةُ رَأسُ اَلدَّوَاء

“Al mi’datu baytud daaye, wal Himyatu rasu addawaa.”

“The stomach is the house of disease and abstinence is the head of every remedy.”  

Above we covered protection for the head, mouth, hands, and grounding aspect of the cane in Sufi healing. All of this is now showing how to bring energy into your being, how to preserve that energy and how to release negative unwanted energy.

A big secret within the womb of a woman is called the rahm (ra ha meem). The mercy and secret of creation is a gift of the Divine. Without this, we would not be born and the cycle of life would not continue. Protecting that point, meditating on it and covering it with clothing is essential in its safeguarding. Evilness wishes to expose that point and pull from the secret of life from women. They feed on that energy that they don’t have.
