Realities of Ya and Seen,

Ya: Yaqeen (Certainty) & All Knowledge

Seen:  Knowledge, Vision, and Truth of Certainty


From the Teachings of Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani as taught by

Mawlana 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.

Alhamdulillahi Rabbil alameen was salaatu was salaamu alaa ashraful mursaleen Sayyidina wa Mawlana Muhammad ulMustafa sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Madad ya Sayyidi ya Sultan ul Awliya, Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah Faiz ad Daghestani. Madad ya Sayyidi ya Sultan ul Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Adil al Haqqani, madad ya Sayyidi ya Sultan ul Qulubina, Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani. Unzur halana wa ishfalana, abidona bi madadikum wa nazarakum. Madad ul Haqq, ya Hujjatallahi al Mukhlis.

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem “Ateeullah, ‘atee ur Rasul wa ulil amrin minkum,” (Obey Allah, obey the Messenger (ﷺ) and those who are in Authority.) Always a reminder for myself ana abdikal ajeez, wa da’if wa miskeen, wa zhalim, wa jahel. And by the Grace of Allah we are still in existence. If Allah (aj) mercy and rahmah should be lifted, we would be something non-existent.

Awliya (Saints) Bring Realities like Scattered Beads into a Tasbih

Asking to take a path of nothingness and Allah guided us to the hands of Awliyaullah (saints), the turuq (spiritual path), and in the way of tazkiya and cleansing. One of the tajallis (manifestations) of this month [Rabbi ul Thani – 4th Lunar Month] is from the secrets of YaSeen ﷺ, Sayyidina YaSeen ﷺ and from Holy Qur’an Surat YaSeen (36th chapter),  the heart of Holy Qur’an.

Allah gives us all these clues to put these realities together.  Shaytan comes to fragment our mind so that nothing comes together, that one and one never comes together and everything is dispersed. Awliyaullah are like the ropes of Allah where Allah describes: Hold tight to the rope and don’t separate.

وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللَّـهِ جَمِيعًا وَلَا تَفَرَّ‌قُوا ۚ

3:103 “Wa’tasimo bihab lillahi jamee’an wa la tafarraqo.”(Surat Al ‘Imran)

“And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not separate.” (Holy Quran)

Their rope comes to bring these scattered beads into a tasbih. They come and bring everything together, so that these realities can come into the heart and its understanding can come into the heart.

Shams ul Arifeen – Secrets of 12 Lunar Months at the Power of 9

In this 4th holy month from the secrets of Surat YaSeen. That every month in the way of marif’ah has to do with a nine, the power of nine. So you take the lunar month and multiply by nine. The first lunar month times nine is what? Hmm 9, good math class. So you look to the ninth surah, Surat Tawbah. These are the secrets which Allah gave to Prophet ﷺ. The second lunar month, every thing is times nine, will be what? Eighteen, Surat al-Kahf, Ashaab al-Kahf. The third lunar month…O that become harder now, once we left the eighteen that was okay, let’s take out a calculator. [Shaykh laughs] Yes,Twenty-seven.

  1. Muharram: 1×9 =9,  9th Surat Tawbah (The Repentance)
  2. Safar: 2×9 = 18, 18th Surat Ashaab Kahf (The Cave)
  3. Rabbiul Awwal: 3×9 = 27 -27th Surat Naml (The Ant)

Third Lunar Month – Rabbi ul Awwal – 27th Surah Naml
Reality of Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem and  Divinely Kingdom

Twenty-seventh Surah is Surat al-Naml, “The Ant” and all the story, qisa of Sayyidina Sulaiman (Solomon (as), the Mulk (kingdom) of Allah . In that surah is the hidden Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem: Inna huwa sulaiman wa innahu Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem.

إِنَّهُ مِن سُلَيْمَانَ وَإِنَّهُ بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ ﴿٣٠

27: 30 – “Inna Hu min Sulaymana, Wa inna Hu Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem” (Surat an Naml)                   

“Indeed, it is from Solomon, and indeed, He/it is (as follows): ‘In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. (Holy Quran, the Ant, 27:30)

Allah dresses the seeker with the secrets of Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem because when they came in Surat Tawbah there was no Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem. Because they are coming to reach their marif’ah and to lose all their bad characteristics and that Allah dressed them on the 27th surah which is the third lunar month and the haqa’iq of the twenty-seven. That is why all our holy nights are on the 27th. The secrets between the two and the seven, what Allah put in that reality of His Divinely Kingdoms.

4th Lunar Month – Rabbi ul Thani = 36th Surah YaSeen

Reality of Sayyidina YaSeen ﷺ – The Heart of Holy Quran

Then the fourth lunar month, four times nine is thirty-six. So from the Kingdom and the Mulk opens then the thirty-six, opens then on the fourth lunar month which is Surat YaSeen ﷺ. Awliyaullah and `ulama come and say, “The heart of Holy Qur’an is Surat YaSeen.”

قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : إِنَّ لِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَلْبًا، وَقَلْبُ القُرْآنِ يس 

Qala Nabiyu Sallalahu Alayhi wa Sallam: “Inna likulli shayin Qalban, wa Qalbul Qurani YaSeen.” 

Prophet Muhammad (saws) said: “Truly everything has a heart and the heart of Qur’an is YaSeen (saws);…[Narrated by Anas b. Malik (ra) and al-Tirmidhi] 

Means the secrets of Holy Qur’an, the emanations, in which Holy Qur’an is emanating its realities have to do with Surat YaSeen. And Prophet ﷺ’s name by no coincidence is Sayyidina YaSeen ﷺ. That name is attributed with Habibullah (Beloved of Allah). So when they say, “YaSeen, Habibullah” “Sayyidina Taha, Rasulullah,”

صَـلَا ةُ الله، سَـلاَمُ الله ،عَـلَى طٰـهَ رَسُـوْلِ الله
صَـلَا ةُ الله، سَـلاَمُ الله عَـلَى يـٰسٓ حَـبِيْـبِ الله

Salatullah salamullah, ‘ala Taha Rasullillah
Salatullah salamullah,‘ala Yaseen Habibillah

Allah’s praise, Allah’s blessing upon Taha, Messenger of Allah
Allah’s praise, Allah’s blessing upon the Yasin, Beloved of Allah

Means that reality of YaSeen has to do with Allah’s Habib, Allah (aj)’s Love. So when  we are describing the heart of Holy Qur’an, means it is describing the Love of Allah. Because the only way we are going to understand Allah is through His Holy Qur’an. It is going to manifest its realities upon Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. The most perfect understanding of Holy Qur’an is who? It is Prophet ﷺ. There is nobody in Creation that has come or will be coming that can manifest realities of Holy the Qur’an better than Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.

So then Allah is giving us an ishrat (hint) to His Love by naming him YaSeen as Habibullah, that My Love is upon that reality: “Qul in kuntum tuhibbunallah fatabioonee, yuhbibkumullah” “Say, “If you should love Allah, then follow me, Allah will love you” (Quran 3:31). That live a life in which you follow the reality, the example, the character, everything about Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, and I am going to grant you My Love.

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)

YaSeen يس Ya ي and Seen س

Ya ي: Yaqeen (Certainty)

Ilmu Yaqeen, ‘Aynu Yaqeen and Haqqu Yaqeen
Knowledge of Certainty, Vision of Certainty, Truth of Certainty

Then in this month what secrets are coming out from Surat YaSeen? So we said before that ya and every huroof that Allah is giving to us are loaded with realities. That ya is for yaqeen. When you say ‘ya’ its for certainty: ‘Ilm ul Yaqeen, ‘Ayn ul Yaqeen, Haqq ul YaqeenYa is big! ‘Ilm ul Yaqeen, ‘Ayn ul Yaqeen and Haqq ul Yaqeen.


ي =يقين : علم يقين، عين يقين، حق يقين

Ya = Yaqeen : ‘ilm Yaqeen, ‘Ayn Yaqeen, Haqq Yaqeen

Ya = Certainty: Knowledge of Certainty, Vision of Certainty, Truth of Certainty

Ya : Encompasses All Knowledge and Encapsulates all Kalam (Words)

يا = ي- ا

Ya encompasses all knowledge, all realities, from abjad, they teach the direction of the abjad,  the huroof are in a different order based on its haqa’iq (realities). But the ya يا encapsulates all Kalam (words). Because you go from regular alphabet from Alif ا to ya ي. So that everything that is going to be written in this world of words is going to either be between the Alif ا all the way down to the ya. So when the ya ي comes back, it connects to the Alif يا.  So means every haqa’iq and every reality that is going to come from the world of words is encapsulated within that ya because it’s either going to be from Alif all the way down to the ya.  And because of the huroof ya everything is an eternal circle, so it starts with Alif all the way to the ya and the ya ي comes back up and connects to the Alif ا.  

Reality of Calling upon ‘Ya يا

So when you say, “Ya يا ” you are asking everything from the ya. It means every reality is from these huroof (letters). Every haqa’iq and every word has a secret and every secret has its word. All of them encapsulated with that ya, because it starts from the Alif ا all the way to the ya ي , comes back and connects and makes a ya يا . So every time you say, “Ya يا” and the meaning of calling upon that ya, you are asking from the realities of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ of the Ya ي of YaSeen يس , and including the Alif ا of Allah الله. Because everywhere is laa ilaaha ilAllah Muhammadun Rasulullah ﷺ (There is no deity but Allah, Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) is the Messenger of Allah). [Ya Rasul Allah]

Negativity Stops People from Asking Madad and Blocks its Power

So when these other brothers, from a different mother, who don’t accept the madad (support) and the love of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, they say, “O don’t say this ya يا .” Everything they say not to do, there must be an immense secret in it, because Shaytan is not happy. So the hizbu shaytan, and the people who are under the influence of satan and evilness and bad character, never want something good to come out, because when the good comes out it has a power, it has an energy.

We were talking earlier, that you can burn beautific fragrances and it bothers people, why? Because the things that are around them are not comfortable with these fragrances. Prophet ﷺ gave all of these as a cleansing and a reality for us. It is exactly that discomfort that you have, is what you need. These bukhor (incense) clean the areas, because the subtle beings, that is their life. They are affected by what they smell, their entire being is changed by what they smell. When you burn those fragrances, it has an effect upon them. Means everything has a tremendous reality to us, has a tremendous secret within it. So then why Shaytan is blocking it? Because there must be a power.

All Knowledge Manifest through Ya and the Letters

As soon as you say the ‘Ya يا ‘ which is a ya ي  and Alif ا of YaSeen, it is a secret. When you call upon a ya you are actually calling upon the ya of YaSeen and Alif ا  of Izzatullah الله. You are calling upon the reality of Prophet يس ﷺ  and Izzatullah الله. So that everything is always, always, always laa ilaaha ilAllah Muhammadun Rasulullah ﷺ, (there is no deity but Allah, Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ is the Messenger of Allah), has its secret within it.

ي      ا

يس    الله

لَا اِلَهَ اِلَّا اللهُ     مُحَمَّدُ رَّسُولُ اللهِ


  Ya           Alif

     YaSeen    Allah

             La ilaha ila Allahu         Muhammadun Rasulullah

By that ya every knowledge is in there. Every knowledge that whatever will be written, and has ever been written, that manifested into this world, is through that Kalam, is through these letters. You move these letters, you make a word. Everything from the past, or anything that is coming in the future. So means every knowledge that will ever manifest is in that ya. That is why it is granted certainty. This is a description of what Allah  dressed upon Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. [Any questions so far? I lost everybody? Ya (yea) [Laughter]

Seen س : Certainty

Ilmu Yaqeen, ‘Aynu Yaqeen and Haqqu Yaqeen
Knowledge of Certainty, Vision of Certainty, Truth of Certainty

The knowledge of certainly, all that knowledge, then Allah gives us that Seen س , and the secret. That our whole life is about seeking that seen. The Seen س because ‘Ilm ul Yaqeen, ‘Ayn ul Yaqeen, and Haqq ul Yaqeen. Our whole life is to reach these Divinely Knowledges that will open into the knowledge of certainty, ‘Ilm ul Yaqeen. The ‘Ayn ul Yaqeen, the visions of certainty. Means the Ahlul Basirah (people of spiritual Vision) and the people who are wanting to open their heart. They want to have the knowledge of certainty, the knowledge of Heavens and they want to witness that knowledge through their heart. Once they have been given the knowledge, and witnessed the knowledge, it became a Haqq for them. They are not talking from imagination or from philosophy and a book they have read and never understood. Awliyaullah (saints) and those whom are dressed and follow them, their permission is only to talk from what they have witnessed. That the knowledges of reality that they have been dressed with, the visions of realities that they have been shown, and for them when they speak it is a Haqq, it is the truth. That all is encapsulated in YaSeen. [Seen – 3 oceans]

YaSeen ﷺ  is Light of Every Secret & Secret of Every Light

So when Allah is giving the name of His Habib, He is saying: I am giving every knowledge and every reality and every secret upon this insaan (Human being), into this reality of (prophet ﷺ). As a result seek that reality; Noor al-anwaar wa sirat al-asrar, “The light of every secret and the secret of every light,” and that is the Ocean of Reality we are asking to be dressed by. Awliyaullah come into our lives and begin to teach that the holiness of Prophet ﷺ is manzil al-quran, “the house and the abode in which the holy Qur’an is emanating” and

مَهْبَطُ الْوَحْيِ مَنْزَلِ الْقُراَنْ           صَاحِبَ الْإِهْتِدَاء، سَلَامٌ عَلِيك

Ma’batul Wahyi Manzalil Quran      Sahibal Ih’tida, Salamun ‘Alayk

You are base of revelation, the home of Quran,
You are the owner of guidance, peace be upon you o Prophet Muhammad (s)

Allah Oats by YaSeen, and Quran

Allah swears in Surat YaSeen by that reality, testifies by the name He gave to Prophet ﷺ by that reality, and all its dress, and all its majesty, and all its blessings: “wal quranel hakeem”

يس ﴿١﴾ وَالْقُرْآنِ الْحَكِيمِ ﴿٢

36:1-2 – “Ya-seen.(1) wal Qur’anel Hakeem.(2)” (Surat Yaseen)

“Ya-Seen.(1) By the Qur’an, full of Wisdom. (holy Quran 36:1-2)

That every wisdom of Holy Qur’an, because what does Allah want to give you from every kalam and every secret? Not the secret of dunya but you will have an understanding of everything in dunya of whatever Allah wants that soul to know. But Allah wants to dress from the secrets and realities of wal quran al-hakeem, every reality of Holy Qur’an. That is why in Surat YaSeen, what Allah described of Prophet ﷺ? “In huwa dhikrun wal quran al-mubeen”. Means a deep, deep reality for the soul of Prophet ﷺ.

 وَمَا عَلَّمْنَاهُ الشِّعْرَ وَمَا يَنبَغِي لَهُ إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا ذِكْرٌ وَقُرْآنٌ مُّبِينٌ
36:69 – “Wa ma ‘allamnahu shi’ra wa ma yanbaghee lahu, in huwa illa dhikrun wa Quranun Mubeen.” (Surah YaSeen)

“We have not taught him (Prophet Muhammad) poetry, nor it is befitting for him. He (Prophet Muhammad) is not but Zikr (Remembrance/Praise) and the Clear Quran.” (Holy Quran, YaSeen 36:69)

Camel is a symbolic of the Soul, Camel of Allah – Naqatullah

We pray that in these holy nights Allah dresses us and blesses us from these realities, dresses us with `Ilm ul Yaqeen. Take a life in which we seek `Ilm ul Yaqeen that it is food for the soul. When we were reciting today the nasheed on the camel and how the camel when it is seeing Madina is starting to cry.

ﺍَﻟَـمْ ﺗَرَﻫَﺎ وَﻗَدْ ﻣَدَّتْ ﺧُطَﺎﻫَﺎ       وَﺳَﺎلَتْ ﻣِﻦْ ﻣَدَﺍمِعِهَا ﺳَﺤَﺂئِبْ

Alam tarhaa wa qad maddat khuTahaa
Wa saalat min madaami’yihaa sahaayeb

Did you not see how the camel in excitement took wider steps,
And tears
fell down from his eyes in happiness,
when he got closer to Madina Sharif

The camel is symbolic of the soul, naqatullah. Naqatullah is a symbol of the soul. When we read about the camel it is the reality Allah gave to our soul. That your soul requires a sustenance but it can go a long distance without feeding it because this is the reality of people’s soul. Nobody can kill their soul, but they sure can come close. Means they can deprive themselves of every reality but what Allah warned is that when the she camel comes don’t stop her from drinking from the fountain.

Don’t Deny your Soul from Drinking from Fountain of Heavenly Knowledge

وَإِلَىٰ ثَمُودَ أَخَاهُمْ صَالِحًا ۗ قَالَ يَا قَوْمِ اعْبُدُوا اللَّـهَ مَا لَكُم مِّنْ إِلَـٰهٍ غَيْرُهُ ۖ قَدْ جَاءَتْكُم بَيِّنَةٌ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ ۖ هَـٰذِهِ نَاقَةُ اللَّـهِ لَكُمْ آيَةً ۖ فَذَرُوهَا تَأْكُلْ فِي أَرْضِ اللَّـهِ ۖ وَلَا تَمَسُّوهَا بِسُوءٍ … ﴿٧٣

7:73 – “Wa ila thamooda akhahum Salihan. Qala: ya qawmi ‘abudo Allaha malakum min ilahin ghayruhu. Qad ja atkum bayyinatunn mir Rabbikum, Hadhihi Naqatullahi lakum ayatan. Fadharoha takul fee ardi Allahi, wa la tamassoha biso in,…” (Surah Al A’raf)

And to the Thamud [We sent] their own brother Salih. He said, “O my people, worship Allah ; you have no deity other than Him. There has come to you clear evidence from your Lord. This is the she-camel of Allah is a sign for you. So leave her to eat within Allah’s earth/land, and do not touch her with harm…” (Holy Quran The Heights 7:73)

What fountain? The Fountain of Haqa’iq. That your soul is coming into this dunya and all it is interested in are the Fountains of Reality. Don’t deprive her, her being, that reality of her being, her femininity, her softness, her gentleness, her compassion of your soul, don’t deprive her of that Fountain of Reality. She may go a long time but the zhalim and the oppressor, the one who oppresses himself and his reality from reaching to those fountains, and creates a zulmat upon himself, an oppression upon himself.

 فَنَادَىٰ فِي الظُّلُمَاتِ أَن لَّا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا أَنتَ سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّي كُنتُ مِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ

21:87 – “…fanada fizh zhulumati an la ilaha illa anta Subhanaka,  innee kuntu minazh zhalimeen.” (Surat al Anbiya)

“… But he cried out through the depths of darkness, “There is no god/diety except You;  Glory to you:  Indeed I have been of the Oppressor/wrongdoers to Myself!” (Holy Quran, the Prophets 21:87)

Great Struggle is to Fight Againts the Ego

We were even talking earlier about the verses of Holy Qur’an that have to do with warfare. When Allah is describing to fight. The fighting in the time of Prophet ﷺ was to deliver the Message of Allah (AJ). The fighting in this time, there is no Message to deliver. So what did Prophet ﷺ tell the Companions? “That fight was a small fight, now when I am leaving this Earth you won’t see me and my physicality, the greater fight is staying ahead of you.”

عَنْ جَابِرُ قَالَ قَدِمَ عَلَى رَسُولُ اللَّهِ (صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ) قَوْمٌ غَزَاةٌ، فقَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: ” قَدِمْتُمْ خَيْرَ مَقْدَمٍ مِنْ الْجِهَادِ الْأَصْغَرْ إِلَى الْجِهَادِ الْأكْبَرْ.” قِيْلَ وَمَا اَلْجِهَادِ الْأكْبَرْ؟ قَالَ: ” مُجَاهَدَةُ الْعَبْدِ هَوَاهُ

“An Jabiru qala, ‘qadema ‘ala Rasulullahi (saws) qawmun ghazatun, faqalan Nabiyu Sallallahu Alayhi was Salaam: ” Qademtum khaira maqdamin min jihadil Asghar ilal Jihadil Akbar.” Qeela “wa ma al Jihadil Akbar?” Qala “Mujahidatul ‘Abdi hawahu.”

Jabir (as) narrated: ‘Some warriors came to the Holy Prophet. He (Muhammad (s) said to them: “welcome back, you came from minor Jihad/Struggle to the greater Struggle.”
It was asked, ‘what is the greater/big struggle Oh Prophet of Allah?”  The Prophet (pbuh) replied: “it is the servant’s fight against his own Self/mundane wills/desires.” (Bayhaqi Kitab ul Zuhd-al-Kabir)

Means the fight against the self. So the ayat al-quran al-majeed and kareem, the verses that have to do with fighting have to do with fighting of the self. That don’t let your oppressor to take over you. That death will be better for you than under the submission of your bad character. To rise and to come against the oppression of yourself and what that oppressor is putting upon that insaan.

Then Allah also describes naqatullah that this being that is coming from Paradise, all it wants is to drink from the Fountains of al-Hayat, the Fountains of Eternity, the Fountains of Kawthar. That is the `Ilm al-Yaqeen. In your life take a path in which you are continuously taking knowledges of the Heavens, not knowledge that wastes your time, that have no benefit to the soul. The knowledges of Heavens that make the soul to be powerful, that dress the soul with its realities.

Vision of Certainty – ‘Ayn ul Yaqeen

Take a path in which you are trying to open your eyes. Don’t be those who are blind in this world. Allah says: they will be blind in the Hereafter.

وَمَن كَانَ فِي هَـٰذِهِ أَعْمَىٰ فَهُوَ فِي الْآخِرَ‌ةِ أَعْمَىٰ وَأَضَلُّ سَبِيلًا ٧٢

17:72Wa man kana fee hadhihi a’ma fahuwa fee al akhirati a’ma wa adallu sabeela.” (Surat Al Isra)

“But those who were blind in this world, will be blind in the hereafter, and most astray from the Path.” (The Night Journey 17:72)

That wasn’t physical blindness as in losing your eyesight, but the blindness that you became ignorant and heedless to this world. You didn’t take a path in which to open your reality and your whole existence is based on what you can’t see, and all of it is a lie, an illusion.

Divinely Knowledge Energizes the Soul & Opens Vision of Certainty

So then Allah gives a warning this, you want to be raised with that reality and come into Paradises? You won’t see it then, why? Because you make for yourself a Paradise based on your belief. What you believe Allah will give to you. He believed in fire, here is the fire you believed in. You believed in anger, here is the anger that you believed in. So the way of Iman (faith) was to take that knowledge to its highest level, that we believed in the highest of reality, sought a path in which to seek knowledge. These knowledges energize and magnify the soul, so that the vision of the soul begins to open, where Allah gives a yaqeen to the soul that now witness what you are learning. As that soul is witnessing what it is learning Allah is dressing it from its haqa’iq, dressing it from all of its realites.

So when it speaks, it speaks the truth. They inherit from the tongue of Prophet ﷺ lisan al-Haqq. Lisan al-Haqq (Tongue of Truth) because Prophet ﷺ has uloom al-awaleen wal akhireen, ‘the knowledge of all realities’, the secret of witnessing all realities, and he ﷺ is the master of that speaking all haqa’iq. So they inherited from lisan al-haqq, which is lisan as-siddiq, “the tongue of the siddiq’s”, the truthful servants of Allah . Why is it truthful? Because they are dressed with a knowledge, that they witnessed the knowledge, they speak the truth.

Don’t Speak of Realities that you have Not Witnessed

So means that even if you heard them speak but you didn’t witness, you are not allowed to speak about it. You can’t speak about realities that you didn’t witness with your heart. Naqshbandi comes and gives a discipline that even if you heard all the haqa’iq in the world, but you are not taking a path to open your heart and witness it. Even if you read it from a book of somebody else’s haqa’iq (realities). Unless you witnessed it with your soul, then it is a truth, it is a Haqq for you. Otherwise still it is imagination and you are speaking from imagination.

We pray that Allah dresses us from the secrets of Surat YaSeen, secrets of the love of Sayyidina YaSeen ﷺ inshallah.

Illa sharafi-nabi sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam, wa ashabihil kiraam, wa illa mashaykhina tariqatu naqshbandiya til aaliyah wa sairi wa sadatina wa sidiqina al-fatiha.
