Spiritual Protection for the Last Days

From the Realities of Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani (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

Ya Allah grant us from Your Light, from Your Mercy Oceans, to have mercy upon us, grant us from the love of Sayyidina Muhammad (s) and love of Awliyaullah.

Alhamdulillah always a reminder for myself that everything requires an understanding from spirituality, from Malakoot, and from physicality. Anytime we don’t teach from the spiritual, from the Malakoot, which is kulli shayy, and Allah (A) describes it in Surat Yaseen that the Heavenly Realm is all encompassing; it encompasses the physical realm.

36:83 “FaSubhanal ladhee biyadihi Malakutu 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)

Allah (aj) Declare War against those who come Against His Awliyla (saints)

So then the Turuq and Ahl al-Haqaaiq and those who are traditionally trained, and alhamdulillah we are under the feet of Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani (qaddas allahu wa sirrahu), may Allah raise his darajaats, sanctify his secret and declare war on anyone who declares war on him. Allah (Azza wa Jal) to be involved now into this dunya that Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s nazar to be upon them (Awliya) and for the Holy Qur’an to be real, for Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) to be real. That (Allah says): when they come against My Awliyaullah, Allah (Azza wa Jal) will come against them.

: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,…” – Rawa e BukhariShaykh MSH - Black & White - Beautiful pic

Abu Hurayra Narrated 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 [Bukhari]

They went against the qabr, the graves of Awliya who passed, is one thing, but to come against the Sultan al-Arifeen and Muhaqiqeen, and those who are bringing realities and are dearly loved by Allah (Azza wa Jal), loved by Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), Allah’s War be upon them. All the samaawaati wal ardh to come against these dajjals and shayateen.

People outside Tariqa Teach only about Physical realm of the Last Days

A reminder for ourselves that the Malakoot, the spiritual realm, has an essential understanding in everything, eschatology and Islamic understanding of Akhir Zaman is important in our faith. But now so many are teaching that it who are not in Tariqah and not from the Ahl al-Haqaiq. They teach Akhir Zaman (End Time) but only from a physical realm and they miss one wing. It is like needing two wings to fly with, but you miss one wing (spiritual understanding) and the teaching is incomplete; it doesn’t reach to its reality, and does not reach to what Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) wanted for the Nation, and what Allah (Azza wa Jal) wants for the soul.

From the understanding of Akhir Zaman, from End Times and Last Days, and it is relevant to all the nations from all the different religions of the World. If they study only the physical signs, but not understanding from, nor accompanying spiritual guides who give them the spiritual understanding of these Signs, there won’t be a complete growth within that person who gives that teaching, and that (student’s) soul won’t rise.

Signs of Last Days meant to detach you from Dunya

One example is that when you’re expecting the End Times, whatever names people want to use for the return of Sayyidina Isa (alayhi ‘s-salaam), Jesus Christ, peace and blessings be upon him, and Sayyidina Mahdi (as). Whatever is written in people’s books of holy spiritual people that are coming, you can not just look at the Signs in the physical realm and leave it at the physical realm. More importantly and why Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) brought these isharat and Signs for us, is that by studying the Signs of the Last Days and End Times, it takes away the flavor of the material world.

If we look at all the Signs that Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) brought and again everybody goes back to their own Last days signs, turnado, fire, flood, droughtholy books, that when you look at the Signs and begin to see the material world filled with these Signs, it is meant to detach the physical being. That don’t use this material world to plan what you are going to do for fifty years in your life because it looks like a corpse that is in its dying phase. The importance of the physical and why Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) brought those, was to begin to give an understanding that your material world should lose its taste, the spiritual interpretations should begin to dress us all. When you truly believe with your physicality that this world, “O my God look there is war on this coast, there is war on that shore, the oceans are boiling with nuclear destruction, earthquakes are happening, tornadoes are coming, asteroids are falling,”.

By Witnessing Signs of Last Days, Increase Your worship

When you begin to see the physical Signs and your spiritual preparation should also have increased. Allah (Azza wa Jal) describes that kulli shayy, it is all encompassing, so when your physicality looks and reads and believes in these Signs, it looks and says, “O my gosh, why would I put all my efforts on the material world? It looks like a tomato that is rotting and falling apart.” Then the spiritual masters come and teach, “You should be increasing your spiritual practice.” You should be increasing your Zikr and tafakkur and contemplation, your meditations, your prayers, your fasting, all of that which benefits your soul. If you truly believe that this world is coming to an end, then you should have been preparing yourself for the Akhirah, for the Hereafter.

Purify Your Soul to Accompany Mahdi (as) – Don’t just Hide in the Bushes

It is important because people sent emails that, “We are listening to such and such person,” who is very popular on the internet, but not maybe from Tariqah and the way of haqaaiq, who is describing all the Signs of Sayyidina Mahdi (a) and people are rushing to go buy farms, to go into the wilderness and to build wells. But, more important than that is that Awliyaullah come into our life and begin to teach us, “If you truly believe the Signs are here, the difficulties are coming, these are very holy souls, holy beings, what makes you think that by running away and sitting out in the woods you are going to be with Sayyidina Mahdi (alayhis salaam)?”Mawlana Shaykh Hisham and Shaykh Nurjan - Lights in sky

It means your soul has to be able to accompany that reality. Your practises and your level of purity have to be at such a level that Allah (Azza wa Jal) wants that purity to be around Sayyidina Mahdi (alayhis salaam). Otherwise a bunch of crooks hiding here and there, what they are going to be with Sayyidina Mahdi (alayhi ‘s-salaam)? That is why the spiritual realm, the kulli shayy is all encompassing. That is why Awliya come into our lives and say, “Make your Zikr, make your tafakkur make all your contemplation.”

Most important is the tafakkur and to contemplate so that you take a daily hisaab. Yaa Rabbi, “I want to be nothing, let me make a hisaab of myself  of what is my reality and will I be granted from Your Mercy to be amongst them, to be with them, to see that reality. Or am I something dirty that is going to be washed from this Earth as everything else is going to be washed away with water and with wind? It means the importance in all practises lies in the spiritual (side).Mahdiuun, Mahdiyun, Mahdiyon, Mahdi's army

When we practise and build ourselves, cleanse ourselves, and perfect ourselves, you begin to see what Allah (Azza wa Jal) wants you to see. It means all that you were preparing for, your soul begins to see them. Your soul begins to see Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam); your soul begins to see Awliyaullah (saints), and your soul begins to see Sayyidina Mahdi (alayhi ‘s-salaam). If your soul is not reaching to that reality and your practises are not building you to be in that reality of Malakut, then why would we think that we are going to be there physically? That is what they want us to understand.

By just physically preparing, but keeping our selves to be the same rotten character, we are not going to see anything. Allah (Azza wa Jal) describes, and Mawlana Shaykh would remind that even if you are on top of a castle, on top of a mountain, no one is going to escape Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s Divinely Will. It means every body is going to perish, but what we want to be granted is the blessing to see those holy days, to be in the company of these holy, holy souls.

In the time of Nabi Musa they described, that just to be Ark of Covenant carried by 4 - Musa (as)in the proximity of the Arc of the Covenant you had to be from the Rabbaniyoon; you had to fast three days and then enter into that presence, and those were just stone tablets. What do you imagine for the reality of Sayyidina Mahdi (alayhi s’-salaam)? A holy soul from the Divinely Presence of Allah (Azza wa Jal), from the lights of Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam)! It is not going to be easy to approach that reality and to be in the proximity of that reality.

Every Sign of the Last Days has a Spiritual Reality

So they want us to be from those who are purified, those who are cleansed. Means that every Sign has a spiritual reality and for us to fix our spiritual reality. They say, “The currencies are going to collapse,” well every currency is going to collapse! So then we should not be attached to money. We should not be attached to the material world. If you truly believe you should have preparations for your life; you should have supplies and food in your house. And most important for us is that Allah (Azza wa Jal) makes us to be purified souls, where our practises are constantly (to be) in contemplation, constantly in meditation. That Yaa Rabbi don’t let me to be purified by your people, I am asking to purify myself, I don’t want to be purified at the hands of people who have no mercy.

Because now is coming the cleansing unto Earth where people of no mercy are going after each other, and are slaughtering each other. We are asking to be from Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s chosen people, from Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s loved people, from the Ahl al-Muhabbat, from those who love Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) more than they love themselves.

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)

An important reminder for ourselves is that there must be spiritual understanding for all of the Signs. And to implement those spiritual Signs by implementing spiritual practises upon our life so we can see those days and be with those holy souls.

We pray that in the holy month of Rajab Allah (Azza wa Jal), (with the veil of) subhaana man huwal khaliq an noor,

سُبْحَانَ مَنْ هُوَ الْخَالِقَ النُّورْ
Subhana man huwal Khaliq anNur
(Glory to Him who is the Creator, the Light).

The month in which pious people are sent into khalwa (seclusion). Allah (Azza wa Jal) is sending these lights, blessing these lights because there is no time. Most important for us to (understand) that for everything we are doing, there is no time.

They describe there is a place in Damascus and from its minaret Sayyidina Isa will be descending. A big question is that if Allah has no time, then that light, that reality, must always be happening. Why is it that we are not catching that reality? Because if we stay in ha’d ad-dunya (limits of the physical world), we are always waiting for the timed event, for the Earth to shift into that time and wait for that experience to happen. But this time is based on the Earth, the Sun and the Moon. Means samaa, samawati wal ardh (heavens and earth); what is happening in the samaa and in the Heavens  above theMinaret_of_Isa (Jesus), his Return to Earth - Omayyad_Mosque, Damascus, Syria sama, is more important than what is happening on this Earth.

It means when we are practising and doing tafakkur, contemplation, and making Zikr, making salah, paying the zakat, all of these intense spiritual practices, it begins to prepare us to witness those events. There must be a witnessing of Sayyidina `Isa (alayhis salaam) within the heart of the believers, that that event is always happening. Sayyidina Adam (alayhi ‘s-salaam) came to Earth, and Sayyidina Adam (alayhi ‘s-salaam) is eternally coming to Earth with all the souls coming to Earth (at birth) and leaving (at death) eternally.

It means every event from Allah (Azza wa Jal) has no time. So don’t wait for the timed event and wait for disaster and destruction to fill the Earth and say, “I want to be with Sayyidina Mahdi (alayhi ‘s-salaam),” But through the spiritual practises, contemplation and tafakkur, and purification, your heart begins to witness that reality. If we can reach with Malakot and reach from the level of the soul, then we should find ourselves (reaching) with the physicality, no problem.

We pray that Allah (Azza wa Jal) blesses us and dresses us and always keeps us under the feet of Awliyaullah. The Awliya Shaykh MSH like a King, with ring and Asa, stick(saints) of this time, alhamdulillah for this area is Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani, may Allah (Azza wa Jal) dress him and bless him and give him sanctity, and give safety. Allah (Azza wa Jal) is the Protector! And they are coming against Holy Qur’an, they are challenging Holy Qur’an. That Allah (Azza wa Jal) is teaching us that: for My Awliyaullah they have no fear and no grief. 

أَلَا إِنَّ أَوْلِيَاءَ اللَّـهِ لَا خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ ٦٢

10:62 “Ala inna Awliyaa Allahi la khawfun ‘alayhim wa la hum yahzanona.” (Surat Yunus)                  

“No Doubt, Verily on the friends of Allah there is no fear, nor do they grieve”. (Holy Quran, 10:62) 

And if you declare war against them Allah (Azza wa Jal) declares war against you. They are asking for Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s War to come on Earth. They are asking for Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s War to come on Earth.

: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 bilharbe,…” – 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, Bukhari]

We pray that Allah (Azza wa Jal) keeps us under His Shade under the love of Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), and under the nazar (gaze) of Sayyidina Mahdi (alayhi ‘s-salaam).

Subhaana rabbika rabbil izzati `amma yasifoon wa salaamun `alal mursaleen wal hamdulillahi rabbil `aalameen.
