The Nation Suffers From the Sickness of ‘I-ness’
Reminder always for myself that everything we are doing like in an exam room and medical exam room. In which Allah (AJ) and those whom Allah (AJ) inspire amongst the nation to look and to see the sickness of what the nation is suffering from. This issue of Ramadan beginning and moon sighting beginning, and moon sighting ending, and iftar beginning. And every, every month, and every holy occasion, and for everything that’s happening now, it has the sickness of Ananiya, of my ‘I-ness’.
Where I deem myself to be important therefore, ‘I should see it; if I didn’t see it, it’s no longer valid.’ Where this I-ness, in the schools of tarbiya (discipline), is that to train yourself that you don’t exist and that you are of no real importance. In the scheme of this whole creation, you are something non-existent. You’re a dot on this earth. This earth is a dot in this galaxy. This galaxy is a dot in infinite universes.
Every Event Happens in the Presence of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ
Do you think anyone really cares? No! If the day you believe that, it’s the day of your birth and the day of your reality, and the opening of that reality. Awliyaullah (saints) come into our lives to teach us that everything is happening in the presence of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. If our belief – go back to our belief – if our belief is that Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, hadhir-o-nadhir, that he ﷺ is alive in his grave, and that location is Medinatul Munawwara. That Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ in his ruhaniyat, and his soul, is more alive than anything in their physicality. And the commander of the universes is his station, Malik al Hayat (King of oceans of eternity), Malik al Dunya (King of manifested world).
Then you would think that every event and every month’s tajalli (manifestation), every holy event is happening by the command of Allah (AJ) onto the soul of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. So by means of the soul being in Medinatul Munawwara, that’s where everything is starting and everything is ending. The beginning to every reality. So it means that, it’s not important what I think and what I see and what I don’t see. You think of the adab (manners) if your belief is correct; Ahle Sunnah wal Jama’ (followers of the Prophetic traditions) believe that Prophet ﷺ is alive.
Prophet ﷺ is the Perfect Servant of Allah (AJ)
Imagine then when a holy event is taking place, the masjid (mosque) becomes full of people because one, Allah’s (AJ) will that, ‘That day is a holy day.’ You agree, you didn’t agree, you didn’t see it, you did see it; Allah (AJ) is not asking you. When Allah (AJ) opens Masjid an-Nabawi (Prophet’s ﷺ mosque in Medina) and an event is taking place, are you under the impression that Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ says, ‘Oh no, no, I don’t agree with today, I’m staying in my Rauza (burial site of Prophet ﷺ). I’m not coming out to bless the people in my masjid.’ Could you possibly think that? ‘Oh no, no, no, I’m ignoring all these ten-million people sitting outside.’ For this is the perfect servant of Allah (AJ) that whatever Allah (AJ) has ordained, that’s exactly the way it’s going to be and exactly the way Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ will celebrate it.
So then Ramadan begins when Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ begins. As soon as Medina announces, and the Masjid an-Nabawi participates, know that with all our heart and soul, that Rauza Sharif is participating in that, and that is the event that is taking place.
Follow the Light of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ or You’ll Miss Every Holy Event
So all of this guessing is from our I-ness and putting my importance in everything, and every president of every mosque who thinks he is the president of the universe. And every imam (spiritual leader) of something thinks he is the imam of everything. If the I-ness doesn’t end, it’s always going to be sick, and every jama’ (group) behind you missing everything. They’re late to every event and they miss every event. And the real tradition and the real reality was based on when Medina calls. When Medina begins, we begin; when Medina celebrates, we celebrate. Not because of those people who manage that mazhab, but because our Sultan ﷺ (King) is based there. That the light of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ is there and “Khuluqil azeem” (magnificent character), that whatever Allah (AJ) has ordained, he ﷺ is submitting and he ﷺ is beginning.
﴾وَإِنَّكَ لَعَلَىٰ خُلُقٍ عَظِيمٍ ﴿٤
68:4 – “Wa innaka la’ala khuluqin ‘azheem.” (Surat Al-Qalam)
“Truly, You (O Muhammad!) are of a magnificent character.” (The Pen, 68:4)
So we start when Prophet ﷺ starts, we end when Prophet ﷺ ends. Our mi’raj (ascension) is on the night that Prophet ﷺ is going up. Not based on when I saw, when I came; you’ll always be late and you’ll miss every holy event. It’s like somebody comes and tells you that, ‘This bus is right here in front of our building. It comes at eight-o-clock.’ And the arrogance of people, ‘No, no, no’, and they start roaming all around looking for where the bus is. Ya Hu, by the time the bus came and left, you are still looking because it’s arrogance.
Always See Your Soul at Rauza Sharif
They want to know, ‘When is this holy event, when is this mi’raj (night of ascension), when is Laylatal Qadr (Night of Power), when is all this?’ You don’t have to worry about any of that. That’s why the training for every event, every zikr that we’ve said is; see your soul at Rauza Sharif. See your soul in the presence of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. ‘Ya Sayyidi, Ya Rasul-e-Karim, Habib al-Azeem ﷺ, my soul always here at your Rauza. That don’t let me to take my hands off of this station and this maqam, your nazar (gaze) be upon me.’ Whatever tajalli (manifestation) is going to come, when Laylatal Qadr is coming, Allah (AJ), “Atiullaha wa atiur Rasula wa Ulil amre minkum.”
﴾أَطِيعُواللَّه وَأَطِيعُوٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ… ﴿٥٩…
4:59 – “…Atiullaha wa atiur Rasula wa Ulil amre minkum…” (Surat An-Nisa)
“… Obey Allah, Obey the Messenger, and those in authority among you…” (The Women, 4:59)
Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is Alive – Return to That Love and Majesty
Allah’s (AJ) Might and Majesty begin to dress the soul and the light of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ for everything and from the light of Prophet ﷺ emanates out. So if you’re at Rauza Sharif, why would you miss anything? Because it’s coming from Prophet ﷺ. When would it begin, when you’re at Rauza Sharif. When would it end, when you’re at Rauza Sharif. Everything will be dressed from that location and that reality. And by not having that, and these arguments, they’re showing their sickness to Allah (AJ). They’ve lost their faith, these people; they’ve lost their belief. They lost the concept that Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ is alive, very much alive.
And he ﷺ is the commander of every reality, and every Izzah and Might of Allah (AJ) is in the hand of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. And by showing that sickness, you’re guaranteeing Allah (AJ) to send difficulty upon the nation, so that they come back to their belief and the correct understanding. That, ‘Take ourselves out of the equation, take our importance out of every equation, and return back to the love and majesty of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.’ And through the real understanding of La ilaha illallah (there is no God but Allah), and only way to understand that reality is through the door and the gate of Muhammadun Rasulallah ﷺ (Muhammad ﷺ is the messenger of Allah). We pray that Allah (AJ) dress us and bless us.
