Illuminate the Eternal Light within the Heart,

Not the Light of the Brain

(Return back to State of Weakness after strength)

Tafsir Surah YaSeen 36:68 & 16:70

From the Teachings of Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani 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.

وَاللَّـهُ خَلَقَكُمْ ثُمَّ يَتَوَفَّاكُمْ ۚ وَمِنكُم مَّن يُرَدُّ إِلَىٰ أَرْذَلِ الْعُمُرِ لِكَيْ لَا يَعْلَمَ بَعْدَ عِلْمٍ شَيْئًا ۚ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ عَلِيمٌ قَدِيرٌ ﴿٧٠

16:70 – “Wallahu khalaqakum thumma yatawaffaakum, wa minkum man yuraddu ila ardhalil `umuri likay, la ya`lama bada `ilmin shayan, innAllaha `Alimun Qadeer.” (Surat an Nahl)

“And Allah created you; then He will take your souls at death. And among you there are some who are sent back to most abject and a feeble age,  so that they know nothing after having known (so much): for Allah is All-Knowing, All-Powerful.” (Holy Quran, The Bee)

Alhamdulillahi rabbil alameen as salatu was salamu ala ashraf al mursaleen Sayyidina wa Mawlana Muhammad al Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Madad ya Sayyidi ya Sultan al-Awliya, Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah Faiz al-Daghestani. Madad ya Sayyidi ya Sultan al Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Adil al Haqqani, madad ya Sayyidi ya Sultan al Qulubina, Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani. Unzur halana wa isfalana abiduna bi madadakum wa nazarakum. Madad al haqq, ya hujjatallah al mukhlis.

A’udhu Billahi Minash Shaitanir Rajeem, Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, Atiullah wa ati ar rasul wa ulil amri minkum. Always a reminder for myself ana abduka ajiz, save us from difficulty. May Allah’s Rahma to forgive us and continually bless us for the sake of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ and for the Nation of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.

We go back to Weakness after Strength at Old Age

InshaAllah we start from Surat YaSeen, verse 68th [Holy Quran 36:68] “Wa man nu amirhu nunakishu

fil khalqi, afala ya’qiloon,”

وَمَن نُّعَمِّرْهُ نُنَكِّسْهُ فِي الْخَلْقِ ۖ أَفَلَا يَعْقِلُونَ ﴿٦٨

36:68 –“Wa man nu’ammirHu nunakkis hu fil khalqi, afala ya’qiloon.” (Surat YaSeen)

And he to whom We grant long life and bring onto old age, We reverse him in nature (to an abject state, making him to go  back to weakness after strength): do they not have mind to understand?” (Holy Quran, 36:68)

Allah (AJ) from this holy month Rabbi al Thani (6th lunar month) which is the month of the qamar, the month of Surat al Qamar (54th chapter of holy Quran), the moon. From the teaching of Awliyaullah and the realities to open the heart of the seeker. That from the secret of Surat al YaSeen, the heart of Holy Qur’an, Allah (AJ) is describing in this ayat al karim 68th. “To whom We bring onto old age, We reverse him in creation making him to go back to weakness after We gave him strength, have they then no sense?” It’s a warning from Allah  this life that has been given to you is temporary, it has an accounting and a hisaab.

Some People are Sent back to Feeble Age 

This ayah is further explained  with the 16th surah verse 70. “Wallahu khalaqakum thumma yatawaffaakum, wa minkum man yuraddu ila ardhalil `umuri likay, …”

وَاللَّـهُ خَلَقَكُمْ ثُمَّ يَتَوَفَّاكُمْ ۚ وَمِنكُم مَّن يُرَدُّ إِلَىٰ أَرْذَلِ الْعُمُرِ لِكَيْ لَا يَعْلَمَ بَعْدَ عِلْمٍ شَيْئًا ۚ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ عَلِيمٌ قَدِيرٌ ﴿٧٠

16:70 – “Wallahu khalaqakum thumma yatawaffaakum, wa minkum man yuraddu ila ardhalil `umuri likay, la ya`lama bada `ilmin shayan, innAllaha `Alimun Qadeer.” (Surat an Nahl)

“And Allah created you; then He will take your souls at death. And among you there are some who are sent back to most abject and a feeble age, so that they know nothing after having known (so much): for Allah is All-Knowing, All-Powerful.” (Holy Quran, The Bee)

Allah (AJ) giving more understanding from the realities of Surat YaSeen in this ayat al karim,Allah (AJ) created you and caused you to die.” So we have a death, an ending of this life. “And amongst you is he who is brought back,” means that Allah didn’t grant that one death but gave him long life onto this dunya.Brought back but in the most abject stage of life, so that you know nothing after He hath given you knowledge and Allah is knower and powerful.”

Don’t be Astonished by knowledge of the Head

Means for our lives and what Awliyaullah come into our life and say, “Don’t be astonished by the knowledge of the head, but seek a path in which your knowledge is from the heart.” Knowledge of the head is very temporary, it illuminates only their brain. They memorize, where they have strong memory, and they read and translate and keep talking from their head and these are scientists, these are professors at school, these are lawyers, these are doctors. These are all whom in this dunya they say, “MashaAllah, what a powerful mind you have, what a powerful mind that was.” A famous scientist, a famous doctor, even famous scholar, zahiri, we are not talking about ahlut tariqah and the students of ahlut tariqa, this is different.

This is whom they take their ‘uloom (knowledge) in memorizing books, and reciting from books. Everywhere they go they put many books, and they have to keep reading from them. They are like libraries, huge, some events have many books. Allah  is warning for external people that: you may reach a height of knowledge in which We gave you a strength and knowledge, but we are going to pull it, if it is only from your head.

Knowledge that is Not Applied is like a Donkey Carrying Books

So as they begin to memorize they keep getting worried about their memory, and so they have to take more books with them everywhere they go. That knowledge that they have is by reading, reciting, reading, reciting, they keep forgetting and they bring more books, more books. Then Allah (AJ) described from our cousins in Holy Qur’an (62:5) that: this knowledge you have, you carry it with you like a donkey carrying books.

مَثَلُ الَّذِينَ حُمِّلُوا التَّوْرَاةَ ثُمَّ لَمْ يَحْمِلُوهَا كَمَثَلِ الْحِمَارِ يَحْمِلُ أَسْفَارًا ۚ بِئْسَ مَثَلُ الْقَوْمِ الَّذِينَ كَذَّبُوا بِآيَاتِ اللَّـهِ ۚ وَاللَّـهُ لَا يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمِينَ ﴿٥

62:5 – “Masalul lazeena hummilut Tawraata summa lam yahmilohaa kamasalil himaari yahmilu asfaaraa; bi’sa masalul qawmil lazeena kaazzaboo bi aayaatillah; wallaahu laa yahdil qawmaz zaalimeen.” (Surat Al Jum’a)

“The example of those who were entrusted with the Torah and then did not apply it on is like that of a donkey who carries volumes of books. Wretched is the example of the people who deny/falsify the signs/revelations of Allah . And Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people.” (Holy Quran, The Congregation/Friday)

This knowledge that you are carrying with you is like a donkey carrying books. Allah (AJ) then doesn’t hold that knowledge in too much esteem; it’s considered like a donkey carrying books. You are bringing this everywhere with you, this is not a knowledge that they are talking about. Because there are many who speak and give out their knowledge from again, scientists, professors, think of all the people in our lives that Allah  is describing for us. Their knowledge did not benefit them but, they have lots of it. And they dispense it everywhere, and they reach a stage in this dunya of power and strength.

Then Allah (AJ) begins to shut the power off and you find many of them unfortunately in hospitals with Alzheimer’s and dementia. They don’t remember anything. They were not nobody; these were big professors, big scientists, big doctors, big people of dunya. And Allah  is saying: take a warning from that. Don’t be under the illusion of a temporary dunya. The uloom in which they talk is very temporary, it is not illuminating the heart.

Mawlana Jalaluddin (Rumi) Met the Sun (Shams)

So then from Tazkirat ul Awliya (ق) and for us to understand the way of Awliyaullah is from Sayyidina Jalaluddin Rumi ق. For us to understand, he is a big ‘alim (scholar), but an `alim of the books; that was carrying around books and books and wanting to recite from books. He came across one of Allah’s Awliyaullah by the name of Shams Tabriz. That should be enough of an understanding: he met the sun, he met a shams, he met one of whom their hearts are illuminated. As a result of the illumination of their heart, they are reflecting these realities.

They came into contact with each other–we give a short version of it–Shams got his books and threw them into the water. So a big ‘alim walking with books, he came across the path of a wali (saint) and the wali took his books and threw them into the water. He didn’t insult him, because there is a haqaiq in every step of what is happening. Threw it into the water, didn’t throw it into the mud, didn’t throw into dirt, that is a respect for it, he threw it into ma’i (water). One, I am now going to teach you a secret from that. So Sayyidina Jalalluddin got very upset. He said, “Why did you throw my books?” He said, “now pick up your books.” When he picked up his books they were not wet.

The Danger of teaching what you don’t practice

He said, “This is what you need to seek. You need to seek realities. Not that which you are carrying with you and memorizing and talking. The danger of going and saying, ‘I have these ten-thousand books or two-thousand books, that I have read and I will talk to you about.’” Allah will ask you, “How many of those did you put into practice?” Thousands of ayat of Qur’an you want to recite to people, and not one of them you lived by? He  is going to ask: these books that you are talking about and talked about all your life, you read them all, did you practice and live by them? Or it was just you regurgitate and give to people whatever they can take?

Shams washed Rumi’s knowledge with Ocean of Ever-living

And Awliyaullah come into our life and say, “No, no, when he threw that into the water that knowledge was dressed by the ocean of al hayat.( When he returned the books to him pure and purified. He is teaching him now: this knowledge we are going to pull from you; what you think you know, because you are coming to us with your cup full. We are going to pull it, not disgrace it, we are going to clean it. We are going to dress it from oceans of al hayat (ever-living) and give it back to you real. Means give it back to you real.

At old age, the Time is in Descent

So now when people are so concerned in their lives that whatever they are doing, their knowledges, their accreditations, their certificates, all that they have, and then this fear that: I am going to get old and forget all of them. Awliya are coming and teaching, “Because this knowledge you have, it did not illuminate you, and as a result now the time is in a descent.” Surat al-Asr where Allah (AJ) describes: insan is in a losing state.

وَالْعَصْرِ‌ ﴿١﴾ إِنَّ الْإِنسَانَ لَفِي خُسْرٍ‌ ﴿٢﴾ إِلَّا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالْحَقِّ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالصَّبْرِ‌ ٣

103:1-3 “Wal ’Asr.(1) Innal insaana lafee khusr.(2) Illal ladheena aamano wa ‘amilos saalihaati, wa tawasaw bil haqqi wa tawasaw bis Sabr.(3) ” (Surat al ‘Asr)

“By al ‘Asr (the time)! Verily, Mankind is in loss. Except for those who have believed and done righteous deeds and advised each other to truth and advised each other to patience. ” (The Declining Day, 103:1-3)

Means you have a highlight, you have a pinnacle, you have a summer of your life, you reach to a point where you think you are on top of the world. And then you are in a descent [indicates downward motion]. This point at the top is where they say you should worry. If at this point you are on the path with Awliyaullah they will describe. But if you are with people of this dunya (material world), when this point reaches and you begin your descent. Means all, everything is lost; your ability to think is lost, the knowledges that you were thinking and talking to people about are lost from your head. Even the things you specialized in life of your law, your sciences, your architecture, everything will be lost from your head. And this becomes what  Allah describes: “Like a feeble state, like a child, they don’t know even how to take care of themselves.” God forbid. They did not reach the oceans of al hayat and they did not accomplish what God wanted for them, what Allah  wanted for them.

The Shams comes to Illuminate the Heart, Not the Head

So then Ahl al Hayat, the shams, why Shams Tabriz because they are the sun; the sun are the najm. Prophet ﷺ described, “All my Companions are like stars”, they are all najm, they are all stars, they are all eternal in their reality. 

أَصْحَابِيْ كَالنُّجُــومْ 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 rightly guided.” Prophet Muhammad (saws)

Awliyaullah (saints) inherit from Ashab al Kiram, from Ahlul Baytul Kiram and they inherit from that reality that they are a sun. When they come into your life they are coming to illuminate your heart and say, “Don’t focus on the faculty of your head; your head, when the circuits become old and the energy is gone, that head will be worthless to you.” Many in dunya already their head is worthless to them, imagine as they get older? But, illuminate the heart. Ahlul Hayat if they come and begin to teach that: illuminate your heart, if your heart is illuminated from ocean of al hayat your entire being will be powered from that illumination.

The Ones whose Hearts are Open, have  internal Generator in their Heart

It is hard to describe a visual, many things can’t be put into words. You are living a temporary life and the people of dunya, there is like an energy that supports them in had ad-dunya. When the time for that energy is finished, it is like Allah cut the power. When the power is gone the circuits don’t work, it’s finished, that time is finished for that insan. Those whom their hearts are illuminated, Allah  is giving them an internal generator. Does it make sense? You are working on and this is only by example…they will say, “Where is this in the Qur’an shaykh?” I just described the whole of Qur’an in that. You are taking from the outside power. What Allah wanted for us, no, no, no, your heart should be alive.

Muhammadan Light is from Malakot (Heavens), not dunya

When we are reciting salawat that Prophet ﷺ is Muhyi ul Qulub. Prophet ﷺ is Muhyi ul Qulub.

يَا مُحْيِي الْقُلُوْبِ، يَا مَاحِي الذِّنُوْبِيْ ، سَلَّامْ عَلَيك

Ya Muhyil qulubi Ya Mahidh dhunubi Salaam ‘Alayk

O the reviver of the hearts, O the eraser of the sins, Peace be upon you

If your heart is with love of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, Prophet ﷺ will begin to plant into your heart the Oceans of al Hayat. Means he is going to make his love like a drop, where Allah  describes Prophet ﷺ in Surat Noor 24th surah 35th verse. “This light is not from the East or West;” we don’t have an east and west, it is not from the rising of the sun and not from setting of the sun. The rising of the sun and setting of sun is only for dunya, there is no sun and moon in Paradise. So when Allah  says, “This is not from mashariq wal magharib,” this is not from rising or setting. Means it’s not from your dunya, this is from Malakot (heavens), this Light.

اللَّـهُ نُورُ‌ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْ‌ضِ ۚ مَثَلُ نُورِ‌هِ كَمِشْكَاةٍ فِيهَا مِصْبَاحٌ ۖ الْمِصْبَاحُ فِي زُجَاجَةٍ ۖ الزُّجَاجَةُ كَأَنَّهَا كَوْكَبٌ دُرِّ‌يٌّ يُوقَدُ مِن شَجَرَ‌ةٍ مُّبَارَ‌كَةٍ زَيْتُونَةٍ لَّا شَرْ‌قِيَّةٍ وَلَا غَرْ‌بِيَّةٍ يَكَادُ زَيْتُهَا يُضِيءُ وَلَوْ لَمْ تَمْسَسْهُ نَارٌ‌ ۚ نُّورٌ‌ عَلَىٰ نُورٍ‌ ۗ يَهْدِي اللَّـهُ لِنُورِ‌هِ مَن يَشَاءُ ۚ وَيَضْرِ‌بُ اللَّـهُ الْأَمْثَالَ لِلنَّاسِ ۗ وَاللَّـهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ ٣٥

24:35 – “Allahu noorus samawati wal ardi. mathalu noorehi kamishkatin feeha misbahun, almisbahu fee zujajatin, azzujajatu kaannaha kawkabun durriyyun yoqadu min shajaratim mubarakatin zaytoonatil la sharqiyyatin wa la gharbiyyatin yakadu zaytuha yudeeo wa law lam tamsashu narun. noorun ‘ala noorin. yahdellahu linoorihi man yashao. Wa yadribullah ul amthala linnasi, wallahu bikulli shayin ‘Aleem.” (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: Lit from a blessed Tree an Olive, neither of the east nor of the west, whose oil is well-nigh luminous, though fire scarce touched it: Light upon Light! Allah guides whom He will to His Light: Allah present examples for the people: and Allah knows all things.” (Holy Quran, The Light 24:35)

Blessed Tree is not from Sunrise or Sunset, but from Malakot

We go just to the center of this ayah: “It is a Light like in a niche,” this Light that Allah  wants us to achieve, “it is in a misbah,” its like in a lantern. These are from haqiqat ul Muhammadiya ﷺ of where Allah  placed the Light of Prophet ﷺ. “It is like in a glass, like a brilliant star, it is lit from a blessed tree.” This is not the had (limi t) of dunya tree, this is the Tree of Life, Sidra tul Muntaha. Why Allah  is clarifying ‘not from the rising and setting’? Means it is not from the had of dunya; your Earth has rising and setting, My Heavens have no sun and moon. This is from the Oceans of Malakot and eternal realities. “Like an olive tree, blessed, luminous, Light upon Light.

Prophet ﷺ make Awliya’s heart like a Bright Lanthern

Means seek that Light, seek that reality. Awliyaullah carry that Light as an inheritance from Sirajun Munira, that Prophet ﷺ gives to them in their heart. Because if you dive into that ocean, dive into that ocean, and you reach the Maqam al Iman, in which you love Prophet ﷺ more than you love yourself, and you become from Ahbab un Nabi ﷺ, the lovers of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, Prophet ﷺ makes your heart to be like a lantern.

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 (saws)

When you love Prophet ﷺ more than you love yourself, then what’s in your heart if its not your self? Prophet ﷺ. Because he said, “Love me more than you love yourself.” If you achieved that, means your self is no longer in your heart. What is in your heart? It is Prophet ﷺ. He says, “I make for your being like a lamp, where you go, you are giving a luminous light to everything.” If they accompany you, you will revive the dead heart. If that Light enters into the heart of the believer and makes them to be illuminated by Allah’s Grace and Might, means they begin to power all their being.

Dude (worms) don’t eat Ahlul Wadud (lovers) of Prophet (s) in grave

Even as they are growing old, many Awliyaullah, and there are many proofs in this dunya, they bury them when they passed away and when they reopened the grave to move it because of a construction, they are fresh in their grave as if you saw them yesterday. How? When you don’t have energy and you don’t have anything in your heart, what’s going to come if you don’t have Wadud (love)? Dude is coming for you. What is dude? Everyone calls everyone a dude but dude means ‘worm’ in Arabic. If you are not Ahl al Wadud, because Ahl al Wadud are filled with love. Qul in kuntum tuhibbunallah fattabiouni yuhbibkumullah.(Quran 3:31)

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.” (Surah Surat Al ‘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.” (Holy Quran 3:31)

If Allah  loves you and you are Ahl al Wudud nothing on this earth can eat from you. They can’t bite you, and they can’t make your their ta’am, their food. They are fresh, they have an energy source within their heart and their soul, still sparking and powering their body that is parked in their grave. Their force of energy is not out, but coming from inside, coming from Malakot, where Allah  describes: that Power “kulli shay” (everything), it is the Power of everything this Malakot.”

فَسُبْحَانَ الَّذِي بِيَدِهِ مَلَكُوتُ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَإِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ ﴿٨٣

36:83 “Fasubhanal ladhee biyadihi Malakotu kulli shay in wa ilayhi turja’oon.” (Surat Yaseen)

“Therefore Glory be to Him in Whose hand is the [heavenly] dominion/ kingdom of all things, and to Him you will be returned..” (Holy Quran, 36:83)

If they reached to that, their hearts are lit, their body are secured by energy. There is no dude eating them. Ironic how this dunya people call each other ‘dude’. Do you think Allah brought a program so that we would understand? So why do people go around calling each other ‘worm’? So that we would understand. Allah  is giving hints in the program, it has been written; whatever Prophet ﷺ brought for us we see the signs everywhere.

Illuminate the heart, so you don’t become Feeble

So illuminate the heart, bring the light within the heart. That illumination will illuminate everything and they don’t become feeble. Awliyaullah in their old age become much more powerful, much more knowledgeable, much more with yaqeen. Not become senile and losing of the mind because all their life was just on their dunya. But Awliyaullah come and teach, “No, open the realities of the heart, bring the light of this heart, bring the realities of the heart.”

Tafakkur (Contemplation) and learn Good manners to Attain Mercy

Make Tafakkur, contemplate and Learn Good Manners. That is why Shams Tabriz began to teach that: this knowledge of the books is of no value to you. Allah  describes one of Allah’s students, that Nabi Musa  wanted to meet, that, “he attained the rahma and We taught him the Knowledge of Heavens.”

فَوَجَدَا عَبْدًا مِّنْ عِبَادِنَا آتَيْنَاهُ رَ‌حْمَةً مِّنْ عِندِنَا وَعَلَّمْنَاهُ مِن لَّدُنَّا عِلْمًا ﴿٦٥

18:65 – “Fawajada ‘abdan min ‘ibadinaa ataynahu rahmatan min ‘indina wa ‘allamnahu mil ladunna ‘ilma” (Surat al Kahf)

“So they found one of Our servant from among Our servants , on whom We had bestowed Mercy from Ourselves and whom We had taught [unseen/heavenly] knowledge from Our own Presence…” (Quran, The Cave 18:65)

So means attain a rahma is through the adab, through the tariqa, means the good character. All of those qualities that the turuq have. Come to learn manners, come to learn good character, come to take away badness. And do muhasaba and accounting at night.

Love of Prophet ﷺ Revives the Heart and Washes Away the Sins

Do tafakkur and muraqaba and bring Allah’s eternal lights within the heart. Means bring the love of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ into the hearts. Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ becomes Muhi al Qulub. 

يَا مُحْيِي الْقُلُوْبِ، يَا مَاحِي الذِّنُوْبِيْ ، سَلَّامْ عَلَيك

Ya Muhyil qulubi Ya Mahidh dhunubi Salaam ‘Alayk

O the reviver of the hearts, O the eraser of the sins, Peace be upon you.

And the salawat we were reciting says -Mahi ad Dhunub–not only will Prophet ﷺ revive the heart, that he will wash and clean away the sins because if the light of Prophet ﷺ. “If you love me more than you love yourself”

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 (saws)

Prophet ﷺ is teaching that, “if my Light begins to enter into your heart,” do you think “Qul ja al haqq wa zahaqal batil”, that every falsehood in you, Prophet ﷺ’s Light is going to be sitting with that?

وَ قُلْ جَآءَالْحَقُّ وَزَهَقَ الْبَطِلُ، إِنَّ الْبَطِلَ كَانَ زَهُوقًا

– “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)

If this Light begins to come into the heart, the Light of Prophet ﷺ will destroy all falsehood; no falsehood stands in the presence of Prophet ﷺ. That is why these people can’t clean themselves, and they don’t leave their sins and their bad actions. Ahbab un Nabi ﷺ, lovers of Prophet ﷺ, they don’t need to clean themselves. Prophet ﷺ is cleaning them because the love of Prophet ﷺ is all in there heart. And when that Light is coming, its cleansing and cleaning everything with Izzatullah.

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

2:151 – “‘Kama arsalna feekum Rasulam minkum yatlo ‘Alaykum ayatina wa yuzakkeekum wa yu’Allimukumul kitaba walhikmata wa yu’Allimukum ma lam takono ta’Alamon.” (Surat al Baqara) 

“Just as We have sent among (within) you a messenger from your own, reciting to you Our Signs, and purifying you, and teaching you the Scripture/Book and Wisdom and teaching you New Knowledge, that which you did not know.” (Quran,  The Cow 2:151)

We pray that Allah  grant more and more understanding in this month from the barakah of Sayyida Fatima Zahra  that dress us, bless us, become qamarun and prepare for us the holy month of Rajab, Shaban and Ramadan inshaAllah.

Bi hurmatil Muhammad al Mustafa wa bi sirri surat al fatiha.
