7 Holy Openings of the Face of Awliya
From the Realities of Mawlana (Q) 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
Alhamdulillah reminder for myself Ati ullah ati ar Rasul wa ulil amri 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)
Ana abdukal ajizu daifu miskeenu zalim wa jahl. Ya Rabb, if not for your, your rahmah and mercy upon my soul, that we would be something non-existent.
Allah (AJ) Gives Knowledge to ‘IbadAllah From the Ocean of ‘Aleem
InshaAllah from the realities of guidance, there are different levels of guidance. And in the oceans of irshad (guidance), and real guidance from soul to soul, that there’s a guidance from a level of Rijalullah (men of God). Rijalullah are those whom Allah (AJ) have put into the schools of training in tarbiyah (discipline). Above the rijal are ibadAllah (servants of God). IbadAllah, Allah (AJ) dress them from his ancient ayn and gave them to be from the oceans of ‘Aleem. As a result, they are from the oceans of ibadAllah, that Allah (AJ) dress them with a guidance and with a knowledge.
WajhAllah Reflects to Wajhikal Kareem of Prophet ﷺ and He ﷺ Reflects to Awliya
That the associations are not normal associations in the presence of those ibadAllah, that their face are lit. That the reality of guidance through their face, that they inherit, where Allah (AJ) describes everything shall perish, except the Holy Face. The WajhAllah, the Holy Face of Allah (AJ) is a reflection to Wajhi kal Kareem of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. And these awliyaullah (saints) who have been trained to take from that reality of the face of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. That the ear, as-Sami (All-Hearing) and al-Basir (All-Seeing).
﴾وَلَا تَدْعُ مَعَ اللَّـهِ إِلَـٰهًا آخَرَ ۘ لَا إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ ۚ كُلُّ شَيْءٍ هَالِكٌ إِلَّا وَجْهَهُ ۚ لَهُ الْحُكْمُ وَإِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ ﴿٨٨
28:88 – “Wala tad’uo ma’Allahi ilahan aakhara la ilaha illa huwa kullu shayin halikun illa wajha hu la hul hukmu wa ilayhi turja’oon.” (Surat Al-Qasas)
“…Everything (that exists) will perish except His holy Face. To Him belongs the Command, and to Him you will be returned.” (The Stories, 28:88)
That when they describe, it’s not you that can do anything. Our responsibility is to attend, whether it’s in person, whether it’s via whatever transmission Allah (AJ) is opening. That you do what Allah (AJ) asked of you, as an obligation. But our training was that don’t think that, that obligation will be able to lift you from anything. If you think your salat (prayer) can lift you out of difficulty, that your zakat (charity) will clean you from your bad characters, then look at 99.9% of the people who do that and still have all the bad character. It means if you fall into quicksand, there is no way for you to lift yourself out.
Guidance of ‘Waliyun Murshid’ is a Gift From Allah (AJ)
So, Allah (AJ) describes whom we guide, we guided. Whom we have not given guidance, they can never be guided. And guidance of ‘waliyun murshidun‘ from Surat al-Kahf, where Allah (AJ) is giving a very specific type of guidance.
﴾مَن يَهْدِ اللَّـهُ فَهُوَ الْمُهْتَدِ ۖ وَمَن يُضْلِلْ فَلَن تَجِدَ لَهُ وَلِيًّا مُّرْشِدًا…﴿١٧
18:17 – ” …man yahdillahu fahuwal Muhtadi, wa man yudlil falan tajida lahu waliyyan murshida. (Surah al Kahf)
“… He whom Allah, guides is rightly guided; but he whom Allah leaves to stray,- for him you will never find Saintly Guide to the Right Way.” (The Cave, 18:17)
This hidayat, this guidance is a gift from Allah (AJ). That their face is lit. And for us to even understand, is that don’t look at only the physical face, but imagine a face that is in all 360 dimensions of light. That from the right ear, an energy light comes out, sifat as-Sami (attribute of hearing). And when that energy hits the student, as-Sami is to bring you into the perfection of listening.
Most People Only Listen to Their Ego and Submit to Their Desires
Our way is based on ihtiba and obedience. Our way is based on samina wa atana. I hear, and I obey.
﴾سَمِعْنَا وَأَطَعْنَا غُفْرَانَكَ رَبَّنَا وَاِلَيْكَ الْمَصِيْرُ ﴿٢٨٥
2:285 – “Sam’ina wa ata’na, ghufranaka Rabbana wa ilaykal masir.” (Surat Al-Baqarah)
“…We hear, and we obey: (We seek) Thy forgiveness, our Lord, and to Thee is the end of all journeys.” (The Cow, 2:285)
99% of people, they hear their nafs (ego) and they obey. And Allah (AJ) describes them, ‘have you seen those who make their desires, their Lord?’ Because the nafs (ego) only wants the desire. As a result, they follow all their desires and it becomes ilah, it becomes a God for them. That they bow down to their desires, they submit themself to their desires.
﴾أَرَأَيْتَ مَنِ اتَّخَذَ إِلَـٰهَهُ هَوَاهُ أَفَأَنتَ تَكُونُ عَلَيْهِ وَكِيلًا ﴿٤٣
25:43 – “Ara’aita manit takhaza ilaahahoo hawaahu afa anta takoonu ‘alaihi wakeelaa” (Surat Al-Furqan)
“Have you seen the one who takes as his god his own desire?” (The Criterian, 25:43)
7 Awliya Support the 7 Holy Points of the Face
So, what Prophet ﷺ wanted, and didn’t leave the nation to themselves. But these awliyaullah (saints), these pious souls, and again the different darajat (level). These that they’re describing tonight, their guidance is from the power of the face. And what Allah (AJ) dressed their face, and what they take from the holy face of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. That this sifat as-Sami, as-Sami is the perfection of hearing. When they direct their energy upon the students, and those whom are looking at their face, this sifat (attribute), its purpose to come out and to destroy; destroy the energies that are blocking the student from listening to the correct inspiration.
Through all their teachings, through all their writings, through all their zikrs, through all their association, these 7 points upon them, are continuously in movement. Behind these 7 points are 7 huge awliyaullah (saints). And each of those awliya are supporting that attribute, that essence from Allah (AJ), and sending their madad (support) upon the face of that shaykh.
1. Sifat as-Sami’ (All Hearing) Perfects the Hearing
Hear Your Higher Conscience From Heavens, Not the Lower Conscience in Your Body
So, this sifat as-Sami, S, A, M, I. It’s for hearing. This energy that comes has to keep hitting the student, hitting the student, hitting the student, that stop listening to your bad character. Stop listening to your bad desire and hear the message that Allah (AJ) wants you to hear. Means to hear your higher conscience. You have a lower conscience hidden within the body, there’s a higher conscience that’s always with Allah (AJ). There’s a, your soul is not given all to you, only a drop of your soul was given to you. The bulk, the, the amount of the soul is always with Allah (AJ), only a drop came into this body. That part, that higher reality, that higher soul, is trying to communicate with the lower soul that is imprisoned within the nafs (ego).
Sayyidina YaSeen ﷺ is Yaqeen us Sami’, He ﷺ Hears and Speaks for Allah (AJ)
Their job is they’re inheriting from YaSeen, Yaqeen ul Sami (Certainty of Hearing). This means the most perfected of creation, Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, that Allah (AJ) described that, the name of Prophet ﷺ is YaSeen.
عَنْ عَلِيٍّ بِنِ أَبِيْ طَالِبْ عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامْ – قَالَ: سَمِعَتْ رَسُولُ اللهِ- صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ-
يَقُولُ: إِنَّ اللهَ تَعَالَى أَسَمَّانِيْ فِي الْقُرْآنِ سَبْعَةَ أَسْمَاءٍ:مُحَمَّدٌ، وَأَحْمَدُ، وَطَهَ، وَيَس، وَالْمُزَّمِّلَ، وَالْمُدَّثِّرَ، وَعَبْدُ اللهِ
‘An ‘Ali bin Abi Talib (as) Qala: Sami’at Rasulullah (saws) yaqulo:
“InnAllaha ta’ala asammani fil Quraani sab’ata asmayin: Muhammadun ﷺ, wa Ahmadu, wa Taha, wa Yaseen, wal Muzzammila, wal Muddaththira, wa ‘Abdullahi ﷺ.”
Imam Ali (as) said, “I heard the Messen ger of God (pbuh) say, “Verily God has named me by seven names in the holy Quran: Muhammad (the Praised one) [3:144; 33:40; 47:2; 48:29], Ahmad (the Most Praised one)[61:6], TaHa [20:1], YaSeen [36:1], al-Muzammil (Enwrapped One) [73:1], al-Mudaththir (Covered/Cloaked One) [74:1], and ‘Abdullah (Servant of Allah) [72:19].”
He is YaSeen, Yaqeen us Sami’, and as a result, he’s Habibullah (beloved of Allah (AJ)). It has to do with this heart of the Divinely Presence. The one who hears is the one who speaks. The one who hears Allah (AJ), speaks for Allah (AJ). And that’s why Prophet ﷺ described, ‘I’m a Rasul before this body of Adam and clay and water.’ It means the eternal position of Prophet ﷺ is the messenger of Allah (AJ), created to hear the Divine and speak for the Divine.
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 (AJ) praise and blessing is upon Taha (Purified Guide), Messenger of Allah (AJ). Allah’s (AJ) praise and blessing is upon the Yaseen, Beloved of Allah (pbuh)
كُنْتُ نَبِيًّا وَآدَمُ بَيْنَ الْمَاءِ وَالطِّينِ
“Kuntu Nabiyan wa Adama baynal Maa e wat Teen.”
“I was a Prophet and Adam was between water and clay.” Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
Awliya’s Hearing is Perfected and Their Talks Are a Pocket of Truth from Janab al Haq
As a result of this name of YaSeen dress upon these shaykhs, their hearing is brought into perfection. The energy in which emanating from them, is an energy that goes out and hits the student’s light. That stop listening to your waswas (whispering) and bad desires and begin to listen to your heart and a higher conscience-ness, a higher reality. It means that their talks are not like the talks from people at different places. Their talks are, are, are activated energies. Whether you hear it now or you hear it 10 years later on the internet, it’s a pocket of reality. It’s a pocket of truth from Janab al Haq, from the, the Owner of all truth. As a result, that pocket of truth stays eternally in its place.
So, it means that anytime you listen to these awliyaullah (saints) who been dressed by that level of irshad and guidance, their all, their face is lit. As soon as you listen to their talk, this sifat as-Sami is coming and hitting the heart destroying all the obstacles and idols within the heart, that stop listening to the waswas (whispering), stop listening to the devil. Listen to what’s true, listen to your heart, listen to your conscience-ness and enter into your reality. What you’re looking for is not outside. Outside is imagination, inside is the reality. Outside is your imagination. Everybody imagines God is something, whatever their crazy thoughts can be. You want the real? You go inside. Inside is where we find Allah (AJ). Prophet ﷺ described, ‘Who knows himself will know his Lord.’
مَنْ عَرَفَ نَفْسَهْ فَقَدْ عَرَفَ رَبَّهُ
“Man ‘arafa nafsahu faqad ‘arafa Rabbahu”
“Who knows himself, knows his Lord.” Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
2. Sifat al-Basir (All Seeing) Perfects Our Vision
The next attribute that they dress from is Sami al-Basir, means sifat al-Basir (attribute of seeing) comes to perfect the vision of the student. That was the hadith, that, that vision that you’re using of your eyes, you’re not going to find Allah (AJ) anywhere on this Earth, but yet you see him everywhere. All His signs are everywhere. But what you’re looking for is not from the physical eyes. It’s from the spiritual eyes. So, means they’re Ahlul Basirah (people of spiritual vision), they’re not blind people. Allah (AJ) opened, it’s unimaginable what Allah (AJ) opened within their heart. That attribute dresses the servants that watch them, listen to them, follow that guidance. That begin to dress and bless them.
عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ” اتَّقُوا فِرَاسَةَ الْمُؤْمِنِ فَإِنَّهُ يَنْظُرُ بِنُورِ اللَّهِ ” . ثُمَّ قَرَأَ : ( إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لآيَاتٍ لِلْمُتَوَسِّمِينَ )
“Ittaqoo Firasatal Mu’min, Fa Innahu yanzuru Bi Nurillah. Thumma Qara’a: “Inna fee dhalika la ayaatun lil mutawassimeen.” (Surat al Hijr)”
The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said: “Beware/be conscious of the true believer’s spiritual vision, for indeed he sees with Allah’s Light.” Then he recited from holy Qur’an: “Surely in this are signs for those who see” (The Rocky Tract 15:75).
(Tirmidhi, Book 47, #3419)
Strive to Practice Mawt al Qabl al Mawt, We Don’t Live Forever
Then they begin to train them, that, that what you’re looking for, close your eyes. Take a life in which in which you practice mawt al qabl al mawt (dying before death). You practice the arrival of your death. Don’t think your death is way off, that this life is for you to be entertaining yourself only. But think that your death could come at any moment. You live as if you have to live forever, pay your bills. But you pray as if you’re going to die by morning. So, you work hard all day long to make your sustenance and feed your family, and all night long you’re concerned that, ‘Ya Rabbi, is this going to be the moment that I won’t make it to my Fajr and I’m going to die?’ And then when they train with that understanding, they take a way of tafakkur and contemplation. That they, in their meditating and contemplating, that these eyes have played an illusion upon me. And that I want the eyes of my soul, Ya Rabbi. That open the eye of my soul and begin to open the eye of truth and all realities.
Focus On Fixing Our Own Bad Characteristics, Not Others
So, sifat al-Basir has to be dressing. Otherwise, the student will never leave the imaginal world and the world of illusions to enter into the world of haqaiqs (realities). Who knows himself will know his Lord.
مَنْ عَرَفَ نَفْسَهْ فَقَدْ عَرَفَ رَبَّهُ
“Man ‘arafa nafsahu faqad ‘arafa Rabbahu”
“Who knows himself, knows his Lord.” Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
The self can only be known by going inside. As soon as I go inside, I see all my bad characteristics, I see all my bad desires. I see that I can’t change anybody, until I change myself. So, I don’t go around changing people so that it better suits me. You, you be like that, you be like that, you be like that, because it makes me happier when I come. You can’t change anyone. So, Prophet ﷺ wanted us first, change ourself. As soon as I begin to work and change myself, everything around me by its nature, begins to change. Because I’m the one who is changed. So, sifat al-Basir has to dress the student. That take a path in which we’re looking into the heart. That which we’re searching for is not out here.
When Reciting Salawats, Visualize Yourself in the Rauza Sharif
This means that when you’re even doing these nasheeds and salawats (praisings), you’re not thinking I’m sitting on to this guy next to the cushion and oh wow, this is so nice. But you close your eyes and see that you’re in the presence of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. Is he not the best of character, Khuluq al Azim? That you think that your praising upon Prophet ﷺ and Prophet ﷺ is not present, to take your salutations and take your greetings back? Allah (AJ) described, ‘He’s the immense character, the beatific character.’ One Salaams and Prophet ﷺ said I will come and give you back 10 Salaams.
﴾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)
عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ، قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ – صلى الله عليه وسلم -: ” مَنْ صَلَّى عَلَيَّ صَلَاةً وَاحِدَةً، صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ عَشْرَ صَلَوَاتٍ، وَحُطَّتْ عَنْهُ عَشْرُ خَطِيئَاتٍ، وَرُفِعَتْ لَهُ عَشْرُ دَرَجَاتٍ “
Qala Rasulullah (saws): “Man Salla `alaiya Salatan wahidatan, Sallallahu `alayhi `ashra Salawatin, wa Huttat `anhu `ashru khaTeatin, wa ruf`at lahu `ashru darajatin.”
Prophet Muhammad (saws) said: “Whoever sends blessings [Praises] upon me, God will shower His blessings upon him ten times, and will erase ten of his sins, and elevate [raise] his [spiritual] station ten times.” [Hadith recorded by Nasa’i]
So, imagine whole 3 hours of praising upon Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. Don’t you think that the presence of Prophet ﷺ is present? But then why don’t you see it? It means then Ahlul Basirah (people of spiritual vision) train you, keep your eyes closed. Visualize yourself in the Rauza Sharif. You never been to Madina? Then Google it. MashaAllah, now the whole world can see Madina, where it was just for those who made the hajj (pilgrimage) or umrah (nonmandatory pilgrimage). Now everyone, you Google, look at the Rauza Sharif, and see the bars and say, ‘Ya Rabbi I’m just locked onto those bars until Prophet ﷺ gazes at me.’ I am at your Rauza Sharif, Ya Rasulul Kareem, you’re the habib (beloved) of Allah (AJ). I cannot leave here until your nazar (gaze) dress me and that you bless me, and that you take away my sicknesses and bad character. And a life, you sit like that, lifelong at the Rauza Sharif from Ahlul Basirah.
3. Sifat al-Alim (All Knowing) Dresses the Tongue From Lisan Siddiq al ‘Aliya
‘Alim al Qadir means then Allah (AJ) dresses, they’ve been dressed by these realities. Then they teach that these associations are not empty. That when Allah (AJ) dresses their tongue with sifat al-Alim, I’m going to give you from Lisan as-Siddiq al ‘Aliya.
(وَوَهَبْنَا لَهُم مِّن رَّحْمَتِنَا وَجَعَلْنَا لَهُمْ لِسَانَ صِدْقٍ عَلِيًّا (٥٠
19:50 – ” Wa wahabna lahum min rahmatina wa ja’alna lahum lisana Sidqin ‘Aliya.” (Surat Maryam)
“And We bestowed of Our Mercy on them, and We granted them lofty honour from/on the tongue of truth.”
In Surat al Maryam, Allah (AJ) says, those whom we gave hikmah and wisdom, we have given them an immense reward. And they inherit from Lisan as-Siddiq al ‘Aliya. The siddiq whose name is Ali (as). Don’t need too much interpretation. Oh does this mean elevator, what does this mean? The most high tongue of the siddiqs (truthful). Allah (AJ) said you’re going to inherit, I’m going to make your tongue from al-Aleem. Means we’ll be flowing off your tongue from the oceans of reality, Allah’s (AJ) ancient knowledges. That’s why they’re not rijal, they’re ibadAllah. That the rijal, they were in training. Those whom are above that training, Allah (AJ) granted them Allah’s (AJ) ancient knowledges, that abd. They carry that ayn, Allah’s ancient knowledges. When their tongue speaks, it speaks with the power and qudra from their soul. They can shatter all falsehood in their talk, and all the energy they’re trying to affect upon the soul. And in its place, put every perfection that Allah (AJ) wants. Whether it’s in person, whether its live, or whether its via YouTube, 10 years later, it doesn’t matter.
When Awliya Speak the Haq, They Destroy Falsehood & Revive the Hearts
The energy still dressing, still dressing. And that’s when Allah (AJ) describe, when the truth comes, falsehood perishes.
﴾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)
And falsehood by its nature is ever crumbling and perishing. They don’t occupy the same space. That’s why shaytan tries to block them, don’t listen to them, don’t, don’t hear them, don’t turn onto that channel, don’t read from that book, because it’s filled with haqaiqs (realities) that begin to emanate out. Like a laser beam, it hits and every falsehood that people have built upon themself, will come shattering down. Not only it shatters all the falsehood, all the incorrect, all the bad characteristic, but the soul that feels that its dying and losing its faith, losing its course, losing its purpose, …they’re muhyil qulub (revivers of the hearts). As soon as they speak from the heart of Prophet ﷺ, mahidh dhunubi muhyil qulub.
يَا مُحْيِي الْقُلُوْبِ، سَلَّامْ عَلَيك
يَا مَاحِي الذِّنُوْبِ ، سَلَّامْ عَلَيك
Ya Muhyil qulubi, Salaam ‘Alayk
Ya Mahidh dhunubi, Salaam ‘Alayk
O the reviver of the hearts, O the eraser of the sins, Peace be upon you
The Fish in the Story of Sayyidina Musa (as) Symbolizes the Soul
They crush all the wrong and the light that comes from Prophet ﷺ, revives the dead. That was the sign between Sayyidina Musa (as) and Sayyidina Khidr (as). He was looking for Sayyidina Khidr (as). He said, ‘Where, where was the sign when the fish came to life and went into the water?’
﴾قَالَ أَرَأَيْتَ إِذْ أَوَيْنَا إِلَى الصَّخْرَةِ فَإِنِّي نَسِيتُ الْحُوتَ وَمَا أَنسَانِيهُ إِلَّا الشَّيْطَانُ أَنْ أَذْكُرَهُ ۚ وَاتَّخَذَ سَبِيلَهُ فِي الْبَحْرِ عَجَبًا ﴿٦٣
18:63 – “Qala araayta idh awayna ilas sakhrati fa-innee naseetu alhoota wa ma ansaneehu illash shaytanu an adhkurahu, wat takhadha sabeela hu fee al bahri ‘ajaba.” (Surat Al-Kahf)
“He said, Did you see when we retired to the rock? Indeed, I forgot [there] the fish. And none made me forget it except Satan – that I should mention it. And it took its course into the sea amazingly.” (The Cave, 18:63)
The fish, we said many times, is the soul. It’s a symbol of the soul. The soul is like a fish, looking for its water, looking for its sustenance. The sign of these rijal (holy men) is they can revive the dead hearts. The hearts that are losing hope, Allah (AJ) sends to them, just look at them. As soon as you look at them, the energy will begin to dress upon the soul, dress upon the heart. How many people say that they saw pictures and their hearts felt revived, that their energy comes back? The nation of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ been given many gifts. Allah didn’t leave them alone to be in the hands of shayateen (demons). And even more power coming now for what these shaytans are trying to do upon this Earth.
4. Sifat al-Qadir (All Powerful) Opens the Nafas al-Rahmah
Their faces are powerful. From that ‘Alim al Qadir means these knowledges that are coming from their tongue, from the oceans of Allah’s (AJ) ancient knowledges, Allah (AJ) begin to open for them nafas al rahmah (breath of mercy). In their training, Allah (AJ) opened for them. So, means their dressing now from the reality of the breath. Through their breath, because the Qadir is upon their nose, Aleem upon the tongue.
Hu is the Power of Every Atom That Makes it Move
So, that Qadir that Allah (AJ) opened for them in their training, that everything in its atomic reality. Within every atom, the power of every atom is Hu. Whatever the atom is, the power within its nucleus, like a power plant. Like cells, you know like battery charging cells everywhere. What is making that atom to move, is the power of Hu. Qul Hu, then Allah, then huhad, then Ahad after. But the Hu is the power for everything.
﴾قُلْ هُوَ اللَّـهُ أَحَدٌ ﴿١
112:1 – “Qul HuwAllahu Ahad.” (Surat Al-Ikhlas)
“Say, He is Allah, [who is] One.” (The Sincerity, 112:1)
Allah (AJ) begins to unlock for them, every breath they bring in, the secret of the Hu is unlocked and that breath becomes like an energized fuel upon their breath. They breathe the reality of zikr Hu into their soul. As a result, they heat up. They can heat everybody up, anybody watching them will be heated up. Even deeper in that reality is that if you imagine this whole room filled with souls. Don’t look at the mulk (earthly realm) of just the bodies. The body makes you think that your all separated. But for you to be sitting here, your soul is bigger than this Earth. And his soul is bigger, so its just an ocean of light. When they breathe, they can breathe all the light in.
They breathe all the light in through their heart, stamps and purifies that light and they exhale out all the light. So, with every breath, they’re able to clean. Whatever contamination coming upon the students, with every breath that they bring in, is purified within their heart. Because they have a Muhammadan heart. That Allah (AJ) granted them from a reality of their heart, all their faculties have been changed. So, this nafas (breath) that’s coming in, is from Alim al Qadir. This Qadir that begin to dress the breath, means that Allah (AJ) give them like a power that coming through every atom. Otherwise, they can’t survive on this Earth with what Allah (AJ) wants their soul to do, without that energy coming to them.
Like Awliya, the Sun Takes in Waste, Uses it as a Fuel to Emit Light
One of the by-products of that energy is the amount of the lights they can bring in from people’s lights, and they begin to filter. You study the sun – this is not so far off. The sun is actually a filter within our galaxy. It brings in all the waste, uses that as a fuel and produces light. The light then comes out and nourishes you. Come from where? Allah (AJ) made the whole of our galaxy a food source for the sun. It pulls, it has a gravitational pull that pulls elements, eats it, uses it for fuel, and produces an energy, electromagnetic power. A light. That light nourishes the entire galaxy. Allah (AJ) said, ‘Look, I show you my signs upon the horizon, but the one inside you, more powerful, and I show it within yourself.’
﴾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-Fussilat)
“We will show them Our signs in the horizons and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth…” (Explained in Detail, 41:53)
Allah (AJ) Wages War On Those Who Come Against Awliya
Wa laqad karramna bani adam (Quran 17:70). Bani Adam’s gift is much higher than the sun on the outside. Said you have this entire creation and reality within yourselves.
﴾وَلَقَدْ كَرَّمْنَا بَنِي آدَمَ وَحَمَلْنَاهُمْ فِي الْبَرِّ وَالْبَحْرِ وَرَزَقْنَاهُم مِّنَ الطَّيِّبَاتِ وَفَضَّلْنَاهُمْ عَلَىٰ كَثِيرٍ مِّمَّنْ خَلَقْنَا تَفْضِيلًا ﴿٧٠
17:70 – “Wa laqad karramna banee adama, wa hamalna hum filbarri wal bahri wa razaqnahum minat tayyibati wa faddalnahum ‘ala katheerin mimman khalaqna tafdeela. (Surat Al-Isra)
“And We have certainly honored the children of Adam and carried them on the land and sea and provided good and pure sustenance and bestow upon them favours, and preferred them over much of what We have created, with [definite] preference.” (The Night Journey, 17:70)
If Allah (AJ) is empowering that servant’s heart, Allah (AJ) telling you that, Qalb al Mu’min Baytullah. I’m talking about Allah’s (AJ) house on your heart. That’s the Azimat (greatness). That’s the Azimat! Allah didn’t say my house is in the sun. My house is in your heart. If you purify and listen to what they’re teaching, your talking about Allah’s (AJ) heart on the servant. [q]
قَلْبَ الْمُؤْمِنْ بَيْتُ الرَّبْ
“Qalb al mu’min baytur rabb.”
“The heart of the believer is the House of the Lord.” Hadith Qudsi
That’s why they said, don’t break somebody’s heart. Because if it should be Allah’s (AJ) heart, Allah (AJ) declares war against you. Because these hadiths, for jahal (ignorant) people, they’re just beads. All over the place, beads. For awliya (saints), they’re like a tasbih (prayer beads). The hadith, they all come together. Why Allah said, ‘I am going to make war against awliya? If you come against my awliya, I make war against you.’ [q]
عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَة رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُول اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه و سلم إنَّ اللَّهَ تَعَالَى قَالَ
مَنْ عَادَى لِي وَلِيًّا فَقْد آذَنْتهُ بِالْحَرْبِ” – رَوَاهُ الْبُخَارِيُّ”
“Man ‘ada li waliyan faqda adhantahu bil harbe,…” (‘An Abi Hurayra, Rawa e Bukhari)
Narrated by Abu Hurayra, that Prophet Muhammad (saws) said that “Allah (aj) said, ‘I will declare war against him who shows hostility to a waliy (saint) of Mine…” [Hadith qudsi, Narrated by Abu Hurayra, in Sahih Bukhari]
And all the ulema (scholars) came and said, there’s very few things that Allah (AJ) would make war against anyone. Why war against, if you come against His awliya? Because it’s Allah’s (AJ) heart. If they reach wilayat (sainthood), they reach the station in which Allah (AJ), I am the heart, My house is in their heart. This is the house of Allah (AJ) within the heart of that wali (pious servant). Of course, you come against them, you came against Allah (AJ). [q]
The Shaykh With His Energy Ignites the Heart of the Student
So, means this qudra and this power that emanating through the breath, then that shaykh has to be able to dress the breath. So, when you want to catch somebody on fire, you keep igniting them, you keep igniting them, you keep igniting through the breath. So, the qudra (power) the people feel, they’re heated up in the zikr (remembrance). Even from a distance they’re heating up, heating up, they’re catching fire. Because if you ever watch somebody make a camp fire, you throw sparks at it, right? When the student, the time is right, they ignite. Because they’re continuously under the spark of the shaykh. They ignite and immediately they start to feel the energy, because the shaykh has to turn their reality into what he has been made. He is a walking sun.
Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is the Star Maker and the Black Hole
That’s why Prophet ﷺ described that follow any of my companions, they’re najm. They are stars, stars on a dark night.
أَصْحَابِيْ كَالنُّجُـــومْ 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 guided.” Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
Prophet ﷺ is the ‘star maker’. But yet they didn’t understand the reality of the black hole. They saw something black with orange and they’re astonished. Oh wow, it’s a black hole with a circle with the orange. But the black hole is Prophet ﷺ and is the reality of every star. You cannot have a star manifest without entering into the black hole. The fana and the annihilation is the black hole, the baqaa and that which appears after it was annihilated in the black hole, it appears as a sun. That’s ‘mawt al qabl al mawt (dying before dead).’ When you approach them with who you are and say, ‘No, I don’t want to be this. I want to enter into the reality of what you created me for, to be a star, to be eternal.’ Then say, go to the ‘star maker’. Go to the presence of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, he is going to annihilate you. If he annihilates you, it means he takes all your element and break them down. That’s what they saw of the black hole, that all the elements broke down.
If you watch the lataif teachings, that the Akhfa reality, is the center. The Qalb, Sir, Sirr Sir, Khafa, Akhfa. The Akhfa, holds all the realities. Because once they annihilate, they come back as the Sun and they appear as a sun. They annihilate again and come back as the Sirr. They annihilate again, they come back as Sirr Sir. They have to keep annihilating with Prophet ﷺ. Each level of their annihilation, they come back now and manifest as a more powerful reality. That’s why he said that all my sahabi are stars. He is the ‘star maker’, ﷺ. And it goes even deeper.
أَصْحَابِيْ كَالنُّجُـــومْ 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 guided.” Prophet Muhammad (saws)
Real Shaykhs Take the Burdens of People and Gives Light
This Alim al Qadir means their breath has power. They want to dress the student with power. Enough of the dress, enough of the dress, the student will be lit. That their soul will be ignited, they begin to heat up at every association. Their hands are hot, their neck is hot because their heart is now alive. It’s burning like a sun and it needs a fuel source. It takes the burdens and bad character of people and gives light. They never harms anyone, never talks bad. There are shaykhs online, I heard, that they’re bad, they throw things, they yell at people. Run from crazy people, run from crazy people. That’s not a shaykh, that’s a clown. The shaykh, he takes the burdens, he takes the sour and produces everything sweet. He takes their burdens and the difficulty is a fuel for him. Those burdens and difficulty come and he produces more light, because Allah (AJ) made his heart like the alchemy. Like the sun, it takes the elements and produces light. The Alim al Qadir.
5. Sifat an-Nur (The Light) Dresses Awliya’s Right Eye
The Nurul Hayy means then, the right eye, Allah (AJ) dress them from Sifat an-Nur. That through their right eye, is a light that comes out and dresses. Dresses from Sifat ar-Rahman and bi Haqqi Imam al Hassan (as), and Allah (AJ), where Prophet ﷺ described that Imam al Hassan (as), Imam al Hussain (as), wa qurrato ‘aini, they’re my beloved eyes. [Hds]
أَسْيَادِي الْحَسَّنْ وَالْحُسَّيْنِ
إِلَي النَّبِيْ قُرَّةُ العَيْنِ
وَيَا شَبَابَ الْجَنَتَيْنِ
جَدُّكُمْ صَاحِبُ الْقُرْآنَ
Asyadil Hassan wal Hussaini
Ilan Nabi qurrato ‘aini
Wa Ya shabaa bal janna’taini
Jaddukum, saahibul Qur’ana
Our Masters, Imam Hassan (as) and Imam Hussain (as), They are the coolness of Prophet’s (pbuh) eyes. O the Youth of the Paradises,
Your Grandfather (Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)) is the owner of the holy Qur’an
This is from Insan e Kamil of Prophet ﷺ, that describing that these two realities of my eyes are from their inheritance. That, you have to inherit from them. When Allah (AJ) want to dress the right eye of the shaykh, it means then in the association from his eye, when you look into his face, his eye sends out a light. And that light goes into everyone’s soul. It revives whatever is deficient, whatever is incorrect, whatever bad actions, that light has to dress upon them. And that’s why Mawlana Shaykh described, Mawlana Shah Naqshband Fard ul Alam wa Shah e Qul, fills 4 paradises with the intercession of his right eye. That he saved his eyes, and when they would look at his eyes, they would roll. He would roll his eye balls so that you couldn’t see his eyes, and that you couldn’t look at his nazar (gaze). So, that he could save that gift and that power, when Allah (AJ) grant, ‘Whom do you want to intercede?’ Ya Nur Ya Rahman bi Haqqi Mawlana Shah Naqshband. It means when you ask, ‘Ya Nur Ya Rahman bi Haqqi Mawlana Shah Naqshband’, this light is ignited and begin to go around.
6. Sifat al-Hay (The Ever-Living) Dresses the Left Eye of Awliya
From the light of Al-Hayy (Ever-Living), sifat Al-Hayy, their left eye takes from sifat ar-Raheem. The Raheem is the attribute that governs Rahman, because Raheem is malakut (heavenly realm), Rahman is mulk (earthly realm). The malakut runs the mulk, not the mulk runs the malakut, right? The world of light, it runs the world of form. Anything manifesting is the world of form. The spiritual world, sifat ar-Raheem, “Salamun Qawlam mir Rabbir Raheem” (Peace,” a word from a Merciful Lord).
﴾سَلَامٌ قَوْلًا مِّن رَّبٍّ رَّحِيمٍ ﴿٥٨
36:58 – “Salamun qawlam mir Rabbir Raheem.” (Surat YaSeen)
“Peace,” a word from a Merciful Lord. (YaSeen, 36:58)
That attribute is what dresses from the Oceans of Al Hayyat. So, from their left eye, is coming out the ocean of Hayyat and reviving and making everything to come to life. All with whatever Allah (AJ) wants. This is not outside of Allah (AJ). When Allah (AJ) controls their movement, they don’t move left and right without Allah’s (AJ) permission.
7. Sifat al-Muqtadir (The Powerful Determiner) – Dresses the Entire Face of Awliya & Make Them Full Moons
Whatever Allah (AJ) want to dress and open that sifat (attribute), their face become ignited and these realities begin to dress. It’s not an empty association. It’s not a hollow face. As a result of these faculties being opened, that the nur coming from the right, oceans of Hayyat coming from their left eye. When all of these 7 points are opened, Allah (AJ) opened Al Qadir and Al Muqtadir. Sifat al Muqtadir begin to dress their entire face, and Allah (AJ) make them to be qamarun. So, means what? That the Muqtadir, they have the Muhammadan Qadir, that their faces are full moons. Full moons of guidance, not just somebody keep saying these are qamarun, qamarun. They have to know this reality and understand it. Because then they don’t know what they’ve been dressed with. That Qadir and Muqtadir, that their heart is lit, ignited, Allah (AJ) open the 7 faculties. As a result, of the dress of Muqtadir upon their forehead, and all these names upon their reality, that face is filled with light and guidance. And at every moment, all of these attributes are dressing upon the souls of the student.
We pray that Allah (AJ) open for us more and more understanding of guidance, real guidance, not imitated guidance and playing around inshaAllah.
Subhana rabbika rabbal ‘izzati ‘amma yasifoon, wa salaamun ‘alal mursaleen, walhamdulillahi rabbil ‘aalameen. Bi hurmati Muhammad al-Mustafa wa bi sirri surat al-Fatiha.
