The Sun of Knowledge Will Rise from the West

Alhamdulillah that in the understanding of tafakkur (contemplation) and the ways of marifah (gnosticism) and from the arifeen and from the teachers of reality; alhamdulillah, Prophet  described that ‘the sun would rise from the west.’

عن أَبي هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : ( لَا تَقُومُ السَّاعَةُ حَتَّى تَطْلُعَ الشَّمْسُ مِنْ مَغْرِبِهَا ، فَإِذَا رَآهَا النَّاسُ آمَنَ مَنْ عَلَيْهَا ، فَذَاكَ حِينَ لَا يَنْفَعُ نَفْسًا إِيمَانُهَا لَمْ تَكُنْ آمَنَتْ مِنْ قَبْلُ ). روى البخاري (4635) ومسلم (157)

Qala Rasulullah (saws) “La Taqomu Sa’atu hatta tatlu’a ash Shamsu min Maghribeha, fa idha ra aahan Nasu Aamana man ‘alayha, fadhaka heena la yanfa’o nafsan Imanuha lam takun aamanat min qablu. ”

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until the sun rises from the West: and when the people see it, then whoever will be living on the surface of the earth will have faith, and that is (the time) when no good will it do to a soul to believe then, if it believed not before.” Al Bukhari (4535) Al Muslim (157)

That the ishraaq…we don’t have east and west in Islam, we have ishraaq which is the rising of the sun, the rising of reality, and the maghrib which is the setting, and the closing of realities, the setting which brings in darkness. This means where the sun used to rise in the east. Eastern world, now is in a darkness, whether they are cutting people’s heads or buying gold and consuming beyond imagination that there’s no more spirituality. And that that reality is now shifting to where this (the west) used to be maghrib; where inshaAllah Allah (AJ) and Prophet’s  words to be true, that the ishraaq and the knowledges and the rising sun of realities will be shining. 

Just from a level of science, that who is studying light and the physics of light and Muhammad RasolAllah- in the Sun of sunsetthe reality of light? All of that is malakut (heavenly). Light is that which is eternal. Who’s studying that which is eternal? It is the west. All their physics and all their projects are all based on understanding light. While the rest of the nation, Allah (AJ) knows what they’re in search of: how many A’s in the pronunciation of Allah (AJ) and say ‘Allah, Allaaah’, they put five A’s. This is the highlight of their maqhz (brain) and their understanding. Their pursuit became very material, their understanding became very material. And there is no longer the pursuit of realities and light and that which is eternal.

Allah’s (AJ) Signs Upon the Horizon are in Perfection

The first thing that awliyaullah (saints) come into our lives and want us to contemplate is that when Allah (AJ) describes, “I show you the signs upon the horizon and I show you within yourself these realities,”

﴾سَنُرِ‌يهِمْ آيَاتِنَا فِي الْآفَاقِ وَفِي أَنفُسِهِمْ حَتَّىٰ يَتَبَيَّنَ لَهُمْ أَنَّهُ الْحَقُّ ۗ … ﴿٥٣

41:53 – “Sanureehim ayatina fil afaqi wa fee anfusihim hatta yatabayyana lahum annahu alhaqqu…” (Surat Al-Isra)

“We will show them Our signs in the horizons and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth…”  (The Night Journey, 41:53)

The signs upon the horizon, why: because they are in perfection. One: there is no created shirk (partnership with Allah). There is no way Allah (AJ) would create a partnership. So anything you look in nature must be perfect; there’s no shirk in it, there’s no bida, there’s no innovation. That’s from our ego when we invent these things.

So why did Allah (AJ) direct us first is “Look to My Creation, because I manage this creation. It’s perfect. If you take an ajir, if you take an example in life of how I want My creation to operate, you can govern your lives accordingly.” That’s why when people start typing and comment that, “Oh this is shirk, this is shirk”: you’re crazy! Allah (AJ) doesn’t create shirk (partnership with Allah).

The Sun’s Photons Go Through the Entire Galaxy

Allah (AJ) creates a sun filled with power. To show how small we are and how much we are in need, because we have to understand outside, these realities, and then we begin to really understand the direction in which to move inside. When we look outside at what they’re asking us to look in the relationship between the sun and the moon. That we said before: that the photons of this sun penetrate our entire galaxy. They have not built anything that can stop them. The photon goes straight through the planet, no matter walls and iron. And no matter what you create, those photons go straight through, all the way to the end of the galaxy. It means we are nourished by that shams (sun).

You have breath by that shams (sun). How could that be shirk (partnership with Allah)? Allah (AJ) created it that way. Allah (AJ) is the power behind that. That cause and effect that Allah (AJ) wants us to know that: you can’t breathe without that sun, you can’t eat without that sun, you can’t live on this earth and have warmth without that sun, and it creates all the energy fields in your life.

If the sun has an eruption, this whole earth is upside down. The electromagnetic field that comes from that sun on minor eruptions, disrupts everything on earth, make people to have agitated hearts, agitated beings because we are energy beings. They said category five eruption on the sun can destroy everything on earth. It will create an electromagnetic pulse, in which the energy that shoots from the sun begins to move towards the earth, penetrate the layers of the earth and knock everything out.

Allah (AJ) is great! And Allah (AJ) wants to show: “Look, this is just My little creation, how much you are in danger from it”. How much you are in need of it. How much you should understand, because worship is for Allah (AJ); but to understand Allah’s (AJ) creation is a part of deen (religion) and belief. That “Ya Rabbi, Your ‘Azzimat and Your Magnificence and Munificence, this creation that You created, and what power and what importance you gave to it.”

﴾انَّ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَاخْتِلَافِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ لَآيَاتٍ لِّأُولِي الْأَلْبَابِ ﴿١٩٠﴾ الَّذِينَ يَذْكُرُونَ اللَّـهَ قِيَامًا وَقُعُودًا وَعَلَىٰ جُنُوبِهِمْ وَيَتَفَكَّرُونَ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ رَبَّنَا مَا خَلَقْتَ هَـٰذَا بَاطِلًا سُبْحَانَكَ فَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ ﴿١٩١

3:190-191 – “Inna fee khalqis Samawati wal ardi wakhtilafil layli wan nahari, la ayatin li Olel albab. (190) Alladheena yadhkurona Allaha qiyaman wa qu’odan wa ‘ala junobihim, wa yatafakkarona fee khalqis Samawati wal ardi, Rabbana ma khalaqta hadha batilan subhanaka faqina ‘adhaban nar. (191)” (Surat Al-Imran)

“Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the night and the day are signs for those People of understanding (People of the Door of Knowledge). (190) Who remember Allah while standing or sitting or [lying] on their sides and contemplate the creation in the heavens and the earth, [saying], Our Lord, You did not create this aimlessly/in vain; exalted are You [above such a thing]; then protect us from the punishment of the Fire.” (Family of Imran, 3:190-191)

The Sun and the Moon are ‘Fulukul Mashhoon‘ (Loaded Ships)

Then Allah (AJ) says: “Look at the moon, how the moon completely follows the sun, completely in obedience.” We said before from Surat ul YaSeen, starting from verse 38th to the 41st verse, that Allah (AJ) describes the shams wal qamar.

وَالشَّمْسُ تَجْرِي لِمُسْتَقَرٍّ لَّهَا ۚ ذَٰلِكَ تَقْدِيرُ الْعَزِيزِ الْعَلِيمِ ﴿٣٨﴾ وَالْقَمَرَ قَدَّرْنَاهُ مَنَازِلَ حَتَّىٰ عَادَ كَالْعُرْجُونِ الْقَدِيمِ ﴿٣٩﴾ لَا الشَّمْسُ يَنبَغِي لَهَا أَن تُدْرِكَ الْقَمَرَ وَلَا اللَّيْلُ سَابِقُ النَّهَارِ ۚ وَكُلٌّ فِي فَلَكٍ يَسْبَحُونَ ﴿٤٠﴾ ﴾ وَآيَةٌ لَّهُمْ أَنَّا حَمَلْنَا ذُرِّ‌يَّتَهُمْ فِي الْفُلْكِ الْمَشْحُونِ ﴿٤١ 

36:38-41 – “Wash Shamsu tajree limustaqarril lahaa; zaalika taqdeerul ‘Azizil ‘Aleem. (38)  Wal Qamara qaddarnaahu manaazila hattaa ‘aada kal ‘urjoonil qadeem. (39)  Lash shamsu yambaghee lahaaa an tudrikal qamara, wa lal lailu saabiqun nahaar; wa kullun fee falaki yasbahoon. (40) Wa ayatul lahum anna hamalna dhurriyyatahum fil fulkil mashhooni. (41)” (Surat YaSeen)

 “And the sun runs his course for a period determined for him: that is the decree of (Him), the Exalted in Might, the All Knowing. (38) And the Moon,- We have measured for her phases/mansions (to traverse) till she returns (appearing) like the old (and withered) lower part of a date-stalk. (39) It is not permitted to the Sun to catch up the Moon, nor can the Night outstrip/overtake the Day: Each (just) swims along in (its own) orbit (according to Law). (40) And a sign for them is that we have carried their atoms/forefathers in the loaded ship.” (YaSeen, 36:41)

That they are like a fuluk (loaded ships)…Fuluk – fa, lam, kaf – that it is a ship, which means it denotes that it’s carrying something. It’s carrying realities, fulukul mashhoon, that these are loaded ships. Why Allah (AJ) to use that word in description of the sun and the moon? That they are ships and they are moving in an orbit. This means these are in the realities of light.

Then we begin to look at the understanding of the sun because we want to go into magnetism, about the importance of building spiritual magnetism which is an energy. But if we don’t understand the world of light and the world around us, there’s no way to understand and truly comprehend what they want us to mimic within our inner reality. That when you look at that sun, then they begin to show you, you can google ‘size of the universe’, and planets and starts within the universe.

You Can’t Approach the Sun, How Can you Approach Allah (AJ)?

There is a sun; there’s now a sun a hundred times larger than our sun; there is a sun a thousand times larger than our sun; there’s a sun one billion times larger than ourSun and Pistol Star sun. And our earth like a dot to this little sun. Imagine those huge reality that Allah (AJ)… and all of it is an example of our approach to Allah (AJ). Allah (AJ) says, “Ateeullah, atee ar-rasol wa olul amrin minkum.”

﴾أَطِيعُواللَّه وَأَطِيعُوٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ… ﴿٥٩

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

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

Ateeullah is the inner power of the entire universe. Allah (AJ) says that, “Oh you foolish mankind. You can’t approach from where you are to that little sun. How is it that you are coming to Me?” As if you can penetrate the heavens, you need a sultan, you need a permission!

﴾يَا مَعْشَرَ الْجِنِّ وَالْإِنسِ إِنِ اسْتَطَعْتُمْ أَن تَنفُذُوا مِنْ أَقْطَارِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ فَانفُذُوا ۚ لَا تَنفُذُونَ إِلَّا بِسُلْطَانٍ ﴿٣٣

55:33 – “Ya ma’ashara al jinni wal insi inistata’tum an tanfudho min aqtari asSamawati wal Ardi fanfudho, La tanfudhona illa bi Sultan.” (Surat Ar-Rahman)                         

“O gathering/assembly of jinn and mankind, if you are able to penetrate through the atmosphere and pass beyond the zones of the Heavens and Earth, then Penetrate. You will never be able to pass, Except with a King, you need a sultan.” (The Beneficient, 55:33)

The Sun Will Burn You and Annihilate You

Can you move from this earth in the direction of the sun? You’ll be burned, you’ll be annihilated. Even you look and gaze at the sun, it takes away your eyesight; it’ll burn all your retina. It doesn’t even want to be looked at. You can’t sit and observe it. In heliophysics, they don’t allow you to directly observe it; it will burn all of your eyesight.

Azimatullah (Greatness of Allah), Allah (AJ) is describing, “Look, look, how you think you are coming to Me?” Allah (AJ) is teaching that we need a means in which to approach. We have to look at the greatness. When you say ‘Allahu Akbar’, Allah (AJ) says, “Ana Akbar”, I’m even greater than what you can perceive.” But the problem is that people perceive very small in their understanding of Allah (AJ). To think that in the way of marifa (Gnosticism) you are going directly with your soul into Allah’s (AJ) presence. He says, “First you direct yourself to the sun. See if you could go into the sun’s presence. It will burn you, annihilate you. And that sun is a drop in the dot of that other sun that is one billion times its size.”

The Greatness of Sayyidina Muhammad’s ﷺ Light

This means that you’re in need of an approach. You are in need of building your dress and building your light and approaching through this whole chain of realities in your way of marifah (Gnosticism). Because the physical has to match the spiritual. That if you can’t traverse from here and go directly into the light of the sun, how you think you can reach to the reality of Sayyidina Muhammad ? Which all the naat shareef and all the salawats, is that sunlight is only a drop from the light of Sayyidina Muhammad . 

ہے نور تیرا شمس و قمر میں                   تیرے لبوں کی لا لی سحر میں
پھولوں نے تیری خوشبو چُرا لی                 سارے نبی تیرے در کے سوالی

Hai noor Tera Shams o Qamar may         Tere labo ki laali sahar may X2
Phoolo ne Teri Khushbu chura li                Saare Nabi tere dar ke sawali

Your light is in the Sun and the Moon, The dawn has the redness of your holy lips
All flowers have stolen your fragrance, All prophets are at your door seeking help

Allah (AJ) took from Nur ul-Muhammadi , put it into the sun and that’s a drop of the sun that you’re seeing. And the greater sun has more Nurul Muhammadi ; the greaterSun and Pistol Star sun has more Nur ul-Muhammadi , all the way to the biggest sun which they call the pistol star, which is the centre of the entire created universe. That is then the centre of Nur ul-Muhammadi , where Allah (AJ) describes in Tariq, Surat At-Tariq طارق, which is The Piercing Star.

﴾وَالسَّمَاءِ وَالطَّارِقِ ﴿١﴾ وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا الطَّارِقُ ﴿٢﴾ النَّجْمُ الثَّاقِبُ ﴿٣﴾ إِن كُلُّ نَفْسٍ لَّمَّا عَلَيْهَا حَافِظٌ ﴿٤

86:1-4 – “Was Sama e wat Tariq. (1) Wa ma adraka mat tariq? (2) AnNajmu ath thaqib. (3) In kullu nafsin lamma ‘alayha hafiz. (4)” (Surat At-Tariq)

“By the Sky and the Night-Visitant (therein). (1) And what will explain to thee what the Night-Visitant is? (2) (It is) the Star of piercing brightness [Pistol star]. (3) There is no soul but has a protector over it. (4)” (The Nightcomer, 86:1-4)

We Are So Insignificant in Allah’s (AJ) Light

This means Allah (AJ) wants us to understand that this light we are talking about is soSun`s size compared to Earth powerful. In your physical realm, you cannot approach them. In your physical realm, you’re so insignificant and small and so unseen – you are what they call an epsilon in their formula – that the earth itself, to this sun is a dot. Imagine to the sun that’s a billion times the size of the earth is not even visible. And imagine you upon the earth – completely invisible, not even recognized. So with that little piece of being you are, you think so highly of yourself, that you have such an ability to approach. Approach then this dunya (material world). But Allah (AJ) says, “There is a means in which to reach that; but you have to go through a sultan.”

﴾يَا مَعْشَرَ الْجِنِّ وَالْإِنسِ إِنِ اسْتَطَعْتُمْ أَن تَنفُذُوا مِنْ أَقْطَارِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ فَانفُذُوا ۚ لَا تَنفُذُونَ إِلَّا بِسُلْطَانٍ ﴿٣٣

55:33 “Ya ma’ashara al jinni wal insi inistata’tum an tanfudho min aqtari asSamawati wal Ardi fanfudho, La tanfudhona illa bi Sultan.” (Surat Ar-Rahman)                         

“O gathering/assembly of jin and mankind, if you are able to penetrate through the atmosphere and pass beyond the zones of the Heavens and Earth, then Penetrate. You will never be able to pass, Except with a King, you need a sultan.” (The Beneficient, 55:33)

It means it has to be a permission through the level and the understanding of the heart, that the soul has that ability.

The Shams (Sun) is an Imitation from Nurul Muhammadi 

The soul can reach towards these lights and the reality of these lights. That shams is an imitation from Nurul Muhammadi . So it means they approach towards the reality of Prophet  far more powerful, far more hayba, far more difficult. And they are in darajats (levels). That Prophet ﷺ being the imam of all lights and then all the anbiya (prophets), all the rasuls (messengers) are the stars that are taking from the imam, taking from Prophet .

 يَا إِمَامَ الرُّسْلِ يَا سَنَدِيْ              اَنْتَ بَابُ اللهِ مُعْتَمَدِيْ
 فَبِدُنْيَايَ وَ آخِرَتِيْ              يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ خُذْ بِيَدِيْ

Ya imamar Rusli ya sanadi                  Anta babullahi mu’tamadi
Fabi dunyaya wa akhirate                Ya Rasulallahi khud biyadi

O’ Leader of the messengers, O’ my support, you are Allah’s door, upon whom I rely,
O’ Messenger of Allah! Hold my hand in the material world and in my hereafter

All the Ashab an-Nabi ﷺ and Ahl ul-Bayt an-Nabi ﷺ are taking and inheriting from the prophets and from the anbiya (prophets). Another set of stars; and that’s why Prophet ﷺ described, “My Companions, they are like najm (star).” Any one of these stars you follow, you will be guided,” because they are ships. When you follow that light, that light dresses you and blesses you and carries you; and that’s why Allah (AJ) describes them, “They are ships.” You’ll be dressed by their light, not the imitated light but the real light.

أَصْحَابِيْ كَالنُّجُـــومْ بِأَيْهِمْ اَقْتَدَيْتِمْ اَهْتَدَيْتِمْ

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

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

Importance of the Moon in Our Growth

Then when we want to understand tafakkur (contemplation) and the importance of tafakkur, it means magnetism. The understanding of magnetism is that Allah (AJ) gave us an energy in our being and to energize our being more than the energy that we have. There’s no way to go directly to the sun. If you try to connect directly to Allah (AJ), you will be annihilated. If you even try to connect directly to Prophet , you’ll be annihilated. So what Allah (AJ) gave for us: “ateeullah atee ur Rasool wa ulul amrin minkum.”

﴾أَطِيعُواللَّه وَأَطِيعُوٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ… ﴿٥٩

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

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

The ulul amr (saints) and the concept of the moon begins to open up. The moon sends us a light in which we can grow. All growth, all development is through the moonlight. It sends enough of the sun’s light that allows us to absorb that light and nourish our self and build our self. And the sun shines enough energy to sweeten the self. So it means all growth is by the moonlight.

Understanding Juzbah (Magnetism) and Purifying Your Iron

So the understanding of magnetism is that, “Ya Rabbi, I’m nothing, I’m nothing, I’m nothing but dress me from these lights, bless me from these lights.” They begin to teach that you have within you iron. The iron within your body has to be purified. We take a path towards eating good, drinking good, praying and acting good- begins to purify that iron. That iron within the body, when it becomes pure, energy sticks onto that iron. The energy that you are building by reflection, begins to stick onto that iron and you’re building your inner reality. You’re building the energy and the qudra (power).Sun in heart,Look at face, Moon MSN - sufiWhirlerrumi shaykh

This means then they teach through the way of tafakkur (contemplation) that you want to reach towards the light of Prophet , then stare at the reflection of Sayyidina Muhammad . Imitate! Allah (AJ), imitating: look, look, how you can’t stare at the sun directly, not yet, not who you are. But look to the moon. It means all night long you can stare at the moonlight and there’s no burning your eyes. And it builds for you that reality. 

Full Moon Affects People’s Energy and Mood

The moon, when you begin to research, it has an effect on earth. That’s why people go crazy and they call them lunatic. It’s based on the lunar phase of the month. When the month is in full, which means it’s reflecting fully the light of the sun upon the earth and many people go crazy; because that light of Nur ul Muhammadi , it begin to touch people and if they’re not able to contain that energy, they become crazy, they become agitated, crime escalates, and all sorts of difficulties come. Because the amount of light coming on a dark, dark world. Any time you shine a heavenly light on a dark, unheavenly area, it becomes agitated because the two don’t mix.

The haq (truth) and the false never mix. By virtue of the haq (truth), when it comes, it begins, zahuqan, Allah (AJ) describes, “It shatters and obliterates every falsehood.” They don’t mix; they don’t hang out together. When the moonlight begins to shine, every evilness is running for shelter, running for cover; hence they become agitated and aggravated.

﴾وَ قُلْ جَآءَالْحَقُّ وَزَهَقَ الْبَطِلُ، إِنَّ الْبَطِلَ كَانَ زَهُوقًا ﴿٨١

17:81 – “Wa qul jaa alhaqqu wa zahaqal baatil, innal batila kana zahoqa.” (Surat Al-Isra)

“And say, Truth has come, and falsehood has perished. Indeed falsehood, [by its nature], is ever perishing/bound to perish.” (The Night Journey, 17:81)

Sayyidina Adam (as) Was Told to Fast on 3 White Days of the Full Moon 

But believers, they’re waiting for the full moon; that the full moon, Prophet ﷺ described, “Fast on those three days to receive the dress of that light.”

قَالَ قُدَّامَةُ بْن مِلْحَانِ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ:(كَانَ رَسُولُاللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يأمُرنا بِصِيَامِ أيَّامِ البِيضِ ثلاثَ عُشُرَ وَأَرْبَعَ عُشُرَوَخُمُسَ عَشَرَ قَالَ وَقَالَ: هُوَ كَهَيْئَةِ الدَّهْرِ)

Qala Quddamatu bin Melhaane (ra): Kana Rasullulahi (saws): “Yamurna bisSyami ayyamil baytin salasa ‘ushura, wa arba’a ‘ushura, wa khumusa ‘ashara qala wa qala: Huwa kahay-ated dahre.”

The Companion of the Prophet  said, “The Prophet of Allah  advised us to fast on the white days (full moon days) on the thirteen, fourteen and fifteen, and he said: it accounts for the whole eternity.”

That light of full moon was so powerful it had taken away the darkness that had dressed upon Adam (as) from his sin. When they came and told Sayyidina Adam (as) that, “You had been darkened by your sin.” That if you fast these three days, the light or what they call the white days, that the light is so powerful, it will dress you and bless you and correct you of all imperfections.

عَنِ اِبْنِ مَسْعُودٍ عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللهُعَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ:”انَّ آدَمَ لَمَّا اِكْلَ مِنَالشَّجَرَةِ أَوْحَى اللهُإِلَيْهِ: اُهْبُطْ مِنْ جِوَارِيٍّ، وَعَزْتِي لَايُجَاوِرُنِي مَنْ عَصَانِي.
فَهَبَطَ إِلَى الْأرْضِ مسودا، فَبَكَتِ الْأرْضُ وَضَجَّتْ.
فَأَوْحَى اللهُ: يَا آدَمِ صُمٌّ لِي الْيَوْمُ يَوْمَ ثَلَاثَةَ عَشَّرَ، فَصَامَهُ فَأَصْبَحَ ثُلْثُهُ أَبُيْضٌ.
ثُمَّ أَوْحَى اللهُ إِلَيْهِ:صُمٌّ لِي هَذَا الْيَوْمُ يَوْمَ أَرْبَعَةَ عَشَّرَ،فَصَامَهُ فَأَصْبَحَ ثُلْثَاهُ أَبُيْضٌ، ثُمَّvأَوْحَى اللهُ إِلَيْهِ:صُمٌّ لِي هَذَا الْيَوْمُ يَوْمَ خَمْسَةَ عَشَّرَ، فَصَامَهُ فَأَصْبَحَ كُلُّهُ أَبْيَضُ، فَسَمَّيْتُ أيَّامَ الْبُيْضِ.

“‘An ibn Mas’udin ‘anin Nabi (saws) Qala: “Anna Adama lamma ikla minash shajarati awhAllahu ilayhi: ‘Uhbut min jiwariyi, wa ‘izzati la yujawiruni min ‘asani. Fahabata ilal ardi maswada, fabakatil ardu wa dajjat. Fa awha Allahu: “Ya Adami Sumun lil yawmu yawma thalathata ‘ashshara, fasamahu fa asbaha thuluthu abuydun. Thuma awhAllahu ilayhi: “Sumun li hazal yawmu yawma arba’at ‘ashshara, fasamahu fa azbaha thuluthahu abuydun, thuma awhAllahu ilayhi: “Sumun li hazal yawmu yawma khamsata ‘ashshara, fasamahu fa asbaha kulluhu abaytu, fasammaytu ayyamal buydi. “

The prophet of Allah, Muhammad (s) said, “When Adam ate from the tree, Allah (AJ) revealed to him, ‘You are removed from My Closeness, by the mean of My Might. My proximity is not granted for the one who disobeys Me.'” Adam (as) went to the earth blackened. The earth cried and wailed.

So, Allah (AJ) revealed to him, Adam (as), “Fast the thirteenth day (of the month) for me.” Adam fasted, and a third of him whitened. Then Allah (AJ) revealed to him, “Fast the fourteenth day for me”. Adam (as) fasted and his two third whitened . Then Allah (AJ) revealed to him, “Fast the fifteenth day for me.” Adam (as) fasted and his whole body whitened, so they call it the white days. ” [Narrated by Ibn Mass’od (ra)]

This is the history of Islam, is where all the realities of Islam. But, they left everything and went into very material understandings. The understanding and the physics of light, the physics of this reflection. How all of this is based on our life on this earth, the relationship between the sun and the moon: everything to do with our life on earth.

The Ulul Amr/Awliya (Saints) are the Perfected Moons

Then with our magnetism they are teaching us that: this energy that you have is not sufficient for you. When you begin to take a way, a purification and cleansing of the self, then you begin to learn, “I have to learn how to make tafakkur and muraqaba” that these ulul amr (saints), these awliyaullah (saints) on earth, they are like moons, each more powerful than the other. When I focus upon that moon, I am able to bring enough light and my life, and begin to dress myself from that light. It’s not worshipness, just like when you’re looking at the moon in the sky and you’re breathing from the sunlight. Allah (AJ) doesn’t create shirk. We’re in need of it; we’re breathing from it.

Allah (AJ) then describing, “If you need that, imagine what you need spiritually.” It means we are being nourished by the light of Prophet . This is an imitated sun. Without the light of Prophet , you can’t eat. Without the light of Prophet , you can’t breathe. Without the Ashab an-Nabi , Ahl ul-Bayt an-Nabi ﷺ and the ulul amr, that reflection would not be coming to us. So when Allah (AJ) says, “Wa laqad karamna Bani Adam,” that, “We have given you such an honour,” to be dressed from these realities, blessed from these realities.

﴾وَلَقَدْ كَرَّ‌مْنَا بَنِي آدَمَ…﴿٧٠

17:70 – “Wa laqad karramna bani adama…” (Surat Al-Isra)

“And We have certainly honored the children of Adam…” (The Night Journey, 17:70)

The Moon Only Focuses on the Sun, On the Reality of Sayyidina Muhammad 

Then our whole way of understanding to reach towards these realities is that, “Ya Rabbi, let me to be in the presence of these full moons,” that their whole life is the way of Prophet . That’s when you understand the moon, the moon’s only focus is the shams (sun). The moon’s only focus is on Sayyidina Muhammad .

Even you see how they speak will be different. When someone is not a moon, they talk too much about the owner of this entire creation. It’s like the little planet that shot all the way to the front and talking about something that’s way beyond their capacity. But can the moon talk about anything other than the sun?

That’s why Allah (AJ) says, “They don’t overtake each other. The day doesn’t outstrip the night and the night doesn’t outstrip the day,”

﴾لَا الشَّمْسُ يَنبَغِي لَهَا أَن تُدْرِ‌كَ الْقَمَرَ‌ وَلَا اللَّيْلُ سَابِقُ النَّهَارِ‌ ۚ وَكُلٌّ فِي فَلَكٍ يَسْبَحُونَ ﴿٤٠

36:40 – “Lash shamsu yambaghee laha an tudrikal qamara wa la allaylu sabiqun nahari, wa kullun fee falakin yasbahoon.” (Surat YaSeen)

“It is not permitted to the Sun to catch up the Moon, nor can the Night outstrip the Day: Each (just) swims/floats along in (its own) orbit.” (YaSeen, 36:40)

It means its entire focus, its entire job is to follow the sun. You take the reflection of the sun because these are all by analogies and allegories, that the reality is Prophet . If you are following Sayyidina Muhammad , loving Sayyidina Muhammad , trying to do your best to please Sayyidina Muhammad , that is the light of Allah (AJ) within the heart of Prophet .

Awliya (Saints) are the Loaded Ships Carrying the Souls

That sun of reality will begin to dress you and those are the full moons. Those are the awliyaullah (saints) and the saaliheen (righteous); their whole life is to follow Prophet . They are on the qadm as-Siddiq, they are on the footsteps of the siddiqs (truthful) and those siddiqs (truthful) on the footsteps of Sayyidina Muhammad . And Allah (AJ) describes them: “They are like a ship. They are like ships.”

﴾وَآيَةٌ لَّهُمْ أَنَّا حَمَلْنَا ذُرِّ‌يَّتَهُمْ فِي الْفُلْكِ الْمَشْحُونِ ﴿٤١ 

36:41 – “Wa ayatul lahum anna hamalna dhurriyyatahum fil fulkil mashhooni.” (Surat YaSeen)

“And a sign for them is that we have carried their atoms/forefathers in the loaded ship.” (YaSeen, 36:41)

Meditation energy of Shaykh - drknsThis means that when you focus on them, there’s no worshipping. You focus on them like you’re sunbathing, like you’re going out onto the beach and looking at the sun. When you focus on them in your tafakkur (meditation) and say, “Ya Rabbi, let me to always be in the presence of your full moons; let me to be dressed by their light, blessed by their light”; their energy begins to dress our energy. Their reflection begins to dress our reflection. As much as we can carry that light and to be dressed by that light, the light begins to dress our entire being.

Where that light is going to clean is in the iron of the body. That nazma and that energy that begins to reflect upon us, just like it’s reflecting on the outside -( we have to explain it in detail because people are going to watch on the video and then they start to make all sorts of kooky comments). But when they don’t understand the perfection which Allah (AJ) created this universe and this galaxy, that you are taking its reflection and living on this earth. Now for your spiritual pursuit, why would it be something different?

Follow the Path of the Saintly Moons (Ulul Amr)

The energy you have is not sufficient to reach the station that you want. Then connect with the moon. And that’s why they took bayah (allegiance). So when they took bayah (allegiance), they connected with these moons, with these ulul amr (saints). And they took a path in which, where Allah (AJ) describes an ayah for you: “Wa hamalna dhurriyatahum fee fulookul mashhoon”

﴾وَآيَةٌ لَّهُمْ أَنَّا حَمَلْنَا ذُرِّيَّتَهُمْ فِي الْفُلْكِ الْمَشْحُونِ ﴿٤١﴾ وَخَلَقْنَا لَهُم مِّن مِّثْلِهِ مَا يَرْكَبُونَ ﴿٤٢

36:41-42 – “Wa ayatul lahum anna hamalna dhurriyyatahum fil fulkil mashhooni. (41) Wa khalaqna lahum mim mithlihi ma yarkabon. (42)” (Surat YaSeen)

“And a sign for them is that we have carried their atoms/forefathers in the loaded ship. (41) And We have created for them similar (vessels) on which they ride. (42)” (YaSeen, 36:41-42)

“A sign for you is that we carried you in the loaded ship.” Those are the souls that are traversing these realities and, “We created mislihim, and those that are like them,” which means the students and the muqaddams (Lead/advanced follower) that are trying to follow the path of their moons. They took a life of annihilating themselves: I’m nothing, I’m nothing, I’m nothing and my whole nazar (gaze) is on you, and your nazar (gaze) on your shaykh and your nazar (gaze) on your shaykh and that shaykhs nazar (gaze) completely on Prophet .

That gives you the entire government of the spiritual realm, because their face always to the face that they receive power from. Their moon is always attached to that sun and that sun dressing them completely, from where? From Allah (AJ). Because the power of the sun is from where? It is from Allah (AJ). It means the Prophet’s ﷺ light is dressing them.

Zikr Purifies the Iron in the Blood Which Purifies the Heart

Then our whole life is to follow that reality: I’m nothing, dress me from that light. That light begins to dress the iron within the body. As much as we can purify that iron with zikr (remembrance), with good food, with drink, everything to be healthy within the body, that iron is being purified. As soon as you bring this energy onto the body, keep it onto the iron, that iron goes into the heart. Because when you understand the cells and the blood cells of the body, the red from the blood is the iron within it. This means that nazma and that energy attaches to that iron; that iron moves into the heart.

As soon as your life is based on zikrullah and following the reality, every time you say ‘Allah’, it stamps that iron, it electrifies and energizes that iron. Then the body will send it throughout the rest of the body. It means the breath comes in, these energies comes in, they stamp upon the iron, the iron moves into the heart, stamped by the zikr (remembrance), moved out onto the organs of the body and the entire being is being purified because our heart is the sun.

Allah (AJ) is beginning then, the opening of our understanding that, “If you want to copy My galaxy, My universe, then mimic what I’m doing upon My creation.” So as soon as we focus on the moon, focus upon that light because it is the reflection of the sunlight, we annihilate our self, purify our self.

Reality of Magnetism, Haqiqat ul-Juzbah on Spiritual Connection

They begin to teach: the iron within you is going to carry that energy and then your breath brings that energy in and stamps that iron and moves it into the heart. From the heart, it is stamped and moved to all the organs of the body and now your juzbah is building. That is from haqiqat ul-juzbah, that you can’t have no juzbah (magnetism) and you won’t have any magnetism if you are not in the tafakkur (contemplation) of one of these ulul amr (saints), because Allah (AJ) dresses nobody directly.

“Ateeullah”, because nobody can reach the station of ateeullah – it’s impossible. This is a station for the prophets. “Ateeur-rasul wa Ulul amrin minkum.” So Allah (AJ) made our life to be easy, be connected to these ulul amr (People of the Command). By being connected to the ulul amr (saints), they dress us and bless us from these realities.

﴾أَطِيعُواللَّه وَأَطِيعُوٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ… ﴿٥٩

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

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

Spiritually Connect with your Shaykh (Guide)

This means haqiqat ul-juzbah is based on our grasping of tafakkur and contemplation, that as much as I negate myself  in life and I’m nothing, I’m nothing, ya Rabbi; let me to be dressed by these lights, blessed by these lights. Then Allah (AJ) says, “Okay then be like a moon. Take the course of one of them. Follow them. Make your whole nazar (gaze) upon them, that your gaze upon them,” which meansMuraqaba face 2face Meditation Connection follow their path.

And when you’re not with them physically, you keep with them spiritually. It means in tafakkur when you are sitting and contemplating; you don’t need to always be with them (shaykhs) physically. You train yourself that spiritually when you connect, that let my moon to always be present with me, ya Rabbi, that my guide and my murshid (teacher) is always present with me. That I’m nothing and that my spiritual vision begin to see and sense them.

You use the imitated which is the body to reach towards the reality which is the soul. The time that you spend with your physical body with these moons and these realities, with these guides was so that you would open the reality of your soul with them. You spent time, you looked at them, you understood them, you understand the surat, you’re following their path, you have a love for them; as soon as you sit and contemplate that, “ I don’t want to ever be alone ya Rabbi, let me to always be like your planets. Let me always to be in the presence of that moon which is always in the presence of that sun which is always reflecting your light.”

The Presence of the Shaykh Dresses you with Juzbah (Magnetism)

You train yourself all the time to be in that presence. Every time you’re sitting and contemplating, you’re taking that dress of that presence. When you sit in the majlis (association) of the zikr (remembrance), you annihilate yourself and keep in the presence of that reality. You do it constantly- why? Because Allah (AJ) describes the moon and the sun, they MuraqabadressMeditationnever leave an orbit, there’s no timeout. The moon doesn’t say, “Oh, okay, no I’m not going to do this now.” It’s continuously in a orbit, moving, moving, moving, moving – it means our life is continuously on that reality, that at every moment, I’m asking to be in that dress, to be blessed by that dress, that I’m nothing, I’m nothing; let me to reflect that dress. And it begins to send, as much as we can contain, as much as we build ourselves with good practices; as much as that light begins to stay. As much as that light begins to stay and that becomes haqiqat ul-juzbahThe juzbah (magnetism) becomes so strong that people are attracted to them- why? Because it’s like moonlight.

The Moons of Reality Take Away your Difficulties
The juzba (magnetism) of the moon, it can move the tide of the entire ocean. So when we say that this doesn’t make sense, then Allah’s (AJ) teaching that, “Look on the outside. The moon on the outside controls so many emotions and energies, it controls the tide of the oceans. Then imagine what the moon that you focus on can do – what type of energies it can bring, what type of emotions it can cleanse, what type of difficulties it takes away.” All the lunacy that we have is our disconnect from this reality. All the difficulties we have is the disconnect from that reality. 

As soon as you go back into the way of tafakkur and contemplation, you are reconnecting with the life that Allah (AJ) wanted us to always be connected with, so that you are fulfilling ateeullah, ateeur Rasul wa ulul amrin minkum.

﴾أَطِيعُواللَّه وَأَطِيعُوٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ… ﴿٥٩

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

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

That chain of light is reaching to us- it takes away insanity, it takes away sickness, it takes away difficulty. It takes everything away and dresses us, blesses us; and it if affects an ocean, imagine that the 70% of water within our body, how it’s affected by that light.

We pray that Allah (AJ) grant us more and more understanding from what’s outside and around us to the reality that’s actually within us and that we can copy that reality and move towards Allah’s (AJ) Satisfaction, inshaAllah.

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