THE STAR OF PROPHET MUHAMMAD 

La ilaha illallah, Muhammadun Rasulallah

 (There is no God but Allah,
Prophet Muhammad (saws) is the Messenger of Allah)

From the Realities of Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani (ق) as taught by Shaykh Nurjan Mirahmadi

A’odhu billahi minash shaytaanir rajeem
Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

InshaAllah, to share first for ourselves always a reminder, if anyone takes benefit and understanding, alhamdulilah.

Prophet Muhammad  is the Imam (Leader) of All Messengers

In the understanding of the self, “who knows himself will know his Lord.” From many teachings of Prophet ﷺ, spiritual teachings of Prophet ﷺ, many ahadith of Prophet ﷺ, and through the heart of pious people. The opening and expansion of the heart, the expansion of understanding, and Allah’s (AJ) infinite Oceans of Knowledge that there is no limitation. That Allah (AJ) is infinitely expanding the Oceans of Knowledge. And at every moment there must be new knowledge.

 مَنْ عَرَفَ نَفْسَهْ فَقَدْ عَرَفَ رَبَّهُ

“Man ‘arafa nafsahu faqad ‘arafa Rabbahu”

“Who knows himself, knows his Lord.” Prophet Muhammad

From ancient understandings and realities that one basic concept is, that everything is La ilaha IlAllah - with Madinaowned by Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, that Allah (AJ) asked all the prophets that, “If he (alaihis salaatus salaam) comes in your time, you must follow him. He is the Imam of all risalat.” All risalat, messengership is in the messengership of Prophet . There’s only one messenger, he is Sayyidina Muhammad . They were given a certain amount of light, certain amount of information, enough for their people, but from the ocean of Sayyidina Muhammad . So that’s why he is the Imam of all messengers (Imam al Mursaleen). [Hds]

يَا إِمَامَ الرُّسْلِ يَا سَنَدِيْ                                     اَنْتَ بَابُ اللهِ مُعْتَمَدِيْ
فَبِدُنْيَايَ وَ آخِرَتِيْ                                    يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ خُذْ بِيَدِيْ

Ya imamar Rusli ya sanadi                  Anta babullahi mu’tamadi
Fabi dunyaya wa akhirate                   a Rasulallahi khud biyadi

O’ Leader of the messengers, O’ my support, you are Allah’s door, on whom I rely
O’ Messenger of Allah! Hold my hand,  In my life and in hereafter.

It means that, and all messengers accepted to be Muslim. Nabi Musa (as) asked to see Allah (AJ). As a result of what he saw, he said “Anna awal ul Muslimeen.” Sayyidina Ibrahim (as) said “Anna awal Muslimeen.”

قُلْ إِنَّ صَلَاتِي وَنُسُكِي وَمَحْيَايَ وَمَمَاتِي لِلَّـهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ ﴿١٦٢﴾ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ ۖ وَبِذَٰلِكَ أُمِرْتُ وَأَنَا أَوَّلُ الْمُسْلِمِينَ ﴿١٦٣

6:162-163 – Qul inna salati wa nusuki wa mahyaya wa mamati lillahi Rabbil ‘Aalamin (162). La sharika lahu wa bidhalika omirtu wa ana awalul Muslimin (163)” (Surat Al-An’am)

Say, “Indeed, my prayer, my rites of sacrifice, my living and my dying are for Allah, Lord of the worlds. No partner has He; and this I have been commanded, and I am the first of those who submit.” (The Cattle, 6:162-163)

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is the Owner of the Reality of the Star

This means that all reality for us to understand these realities is owned by Sayyidina Muhammad  because he owns the kalimah: La ilaha illallah (Allah (AJ)) Muhammadun Rasulallah . Everything is coming from the ocean of Muhammadun Rasulallah .

لَا إِلَهَ إلاَّ اللهُ مُحَمَّدٌا رَسُولْ الله

La ilaha illallahu Muhammadun Rasulallah

“There is no deity but Allah, Prophet Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.”

It means that our cousins and our nephews and our friends, they don’t own this star; this is owned by Allah (AJ). And the owner that Allah (AJ) is giving possession of all creation to is Sayyidina Muhammad .

The Sun is a Star, Star is Light and Light is Eternal

So then with that understanding, we have to move forward in the understanding of the self, that what Allah (AJ) wants is that you are a form and your form is a temporary existence. And that in you which is real and eternal is your light. The analogy of Allah (AJ) is that “I show you My sign on the horizon and 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-Isra)

“We will show them Our signs in the horizons and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth...” (The Night Journey, 41:53)

The signs on the horizon are the planets and they are from the world of form. And the stars, theySun, planets, milky way, universe are light from the world of light. Allah (AJ) is showing: that which is superior is the light. The light is eternal. Planets may come and go but the light stays. Everything on this dunya (material world) has perished. What has stayed from the beginning of our time until Allah (AJ) calls the end of our time is shams, the sun. So Nabi Musa (as) saw the same sun, Sayyidina Sulayman (Prophet Solomon) (as), saw the same sun. Everyone sees the same sun because Allah (AJ) wants us to take an understanding. All their bodies have died and have been thrown into the dirt. What was eternal was their soul, their light.

Seek the light. Understand the light. Understand your reality. Understand yourself. If you know yourself, you’ll know the rules that Allah (AJ) is giving, what’s governing us and as a result of knowing that we begin to know our Lord. It means in every reality is in the reality of self.

 مَنْ عَرَفَ نَفْسَهْ فَقَدْ عَرَفَ رَبَّهُ

“Man ‘arafa nafsahu faqad ‘arafa Rabbahu”

“Who knows himself, knows his Lord.” Prophet Muhammad

Then Suratul Najm (star), 53rd surah – 53rd in huroof (Arabic letters) equals Ahmad (Alif, Ha, Meem, Dal 1+8+40+4 = 53).  It’s a description of the reality of Sayyidina Ahmad . That he is ‘Wahy al Qur’an’ (Revelation of Qur’an), that he is the perfected  of Allah (AJ), that he doesn’t even speak out of his desire, that everything he speaks is from Allah (AJ), describing: this is the majesty of the soul.

وَالنَّجْمِ إِذَا هَوَىٰ ﴿١﴾ مَا ضَلَّ صَاحِبُكُمْ وَمَا غَوَىٰ ﴿٢﴾ وَمَا يَنطِقُ عَنِ الْهَوَىٰ ﴿٣﴾ إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا وَحْيٌ يُوحَىٰ ﴿٤﴾ عَلَّمَهُ شَدِيدُ الْقُوَىٰ ﴿٥

53:1-5 – “Wan Najmi idha hawa. (1) Ma dalla sahibukum wa ma ghawa. (2) Wa ma yantiqu ‘anil hawa. (3) In huwa illa wahyun yooha. (4) ‘Allamahu shadeedul Quwa.(5)” (Surat An-Najm)

“By the star when it descends. (1) Your companion [Muhammad] has not strayed, nor has he erred. (2) Nor does he speak from [his own] desire. (3) It/He is not but a revelation revealed.(4) Taught to him by one intense in strength. (5)” (The Star, 53:1-5)

Reality of the Soul is ‘La ilaha illallah– Upward Triangle

In understanding ourselves, then Allah (AJ) is describing, because it will begin to open many different signs. That you must understand you have a reality of your soul. And the reality and the tajalli of the soul and the opening of that reality, the paradise of that reality, is la ilaha illallah (there is no God but Allah). On this diagaram, it’s that we’re all looking in this direction, so then the left side is your heart. So when I flip it, it will be on my side.

La – in the Forehead – Deny the Head

The first zikr (remembrance/chanting) that all tariqas (spiritual paths) give is to say ‘La ilaha illallah’. This means bring the qudra (power) of your breath in, then La to your forehead, ilaha – there’s a reality now at the point of the chest of ilaha, then illAllah.

It means that that nur (light) and that breath that you’re bringing in, you take to the head to void your head, stop thinking with your head. Our way is not the way of the head, but the way of the heart. Your head is never going to know Allah (AJ), never going to know the soul. Your head knows accounting, business, math, work, and dunya (material world) issues.

Means that la ilaha illallah, la ilaha illallah, then there’s an upward reality, because there is no up and there is no down. Just for us to understand, Allah (AJ) is not up and Allah (AJ) is not down but the reality of the soul in the concept of this triangle, because everything for us is 3, recite in 3: ‘Ateeullah, atee ur Rasul wa ulil amre minkum’.

﴾أَطِيعُواللَّه وَأَطِيعُوٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ ﴿٥٩…

4:59 – … Atiu Allaha wa atiur Rasola wa Ulil amre minkum… (Surat An-Nisa)

“…Obey Allah, obey the Messenger, and those in authority among you. ” (The Women, 4:59)

Prophet said, “Repeat everything 3 times, we say shahada (testimony of faith) 3 times ” ‘Ashhadu alla ilaha illallah wa ashhadu anna Muhammadan Rasulallah 3 times.” There is tremendous reality in that understanding. Then in the understanding of the soul – la ilaha illallah. So when we’re all looking at it, la ilaha illallah, this is the heart. It means the upward reality and the soul reality, its power is in la ilaha illallah, la ilaha illallah, la ilaha illallah.

أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إلاَّ الله وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّدًاعَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ

“Ashhadu an la ilaha illallah, wa ashhadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa Rasulu.”

“I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.”

Reality of Physicality is ‘Muhammad Rasul Allah’– Downward Triangle

But the downward triangle and its understanding is the physicality. That everybody is struggling with their spirituality, to give energy to their soul. And what is struggling with them? Their desires for dunya (material world).

This means then we have these two fights: the upward desire, which is based on the soul, the upward part of the body which is based on your heart, your lataif (subtle energy points) of the heart. The energy of the heart comes through your soul. So the importance of your belly, Prophet  described that, “All difficulty is in the belly.”

اَلْمِعْدَةُ بَيْتُ الدَّاءِ وَالْحِمْيَةُ رَأسُ اَلدَّوَاء

“Al mi’datu baytud daaye, wal Himyatu rasu addawaa.”womenenergymuraqabah

“The stomach is the house of disease and abstinence is the head of every remedy.”  

The belly has like an equator- why? Because the clash of what your soul wants and the lataifs that are taken on the upper part of the body to empower the heart. And ‘Qalb al-mu’min baytullah’– the heart is the seat of that Divinely Presence.

قَلْبَ الْمُؤْمِنْ بَيْتُ الرَّبْ

“Qalb al mu’min baytur rabb.”

“The heart of the believer is the House of the Lord.” Hadith Qudsi

Prophet Adam’s (as) Descension and Prophet Muhammad’s Ascension

The tajalli (manifestation) and the reality of Sayyidina Adam (as), because Allah (AJ) has no time, the Adamic tajalli (manifestation) is that Adam and the Bani Adam, the children of Adam, they are isramirajalways coming down. They’re always being sent from heavenly realities to come down. And the reality of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ is always rising up, from Isra wal-Mi’raj (The Night Journey and Ascension).

ذُو مِرَّةٍ فَاسْتَوَىٰ ﴿٦﴾ وَهُوَ بِالْأُفُقِ الْأَعْلَىٰ ﴿٧﴾ ثُمَّ دَنَا فَتَدَلَّىٰ ﴿٨﴾ فَكَانَ قَابَ قَوْسَيْنِ أَوْ أَدْنَىٰ ﴿٩

53:6-9 – “Dhoo mirratin fastawa. (6) Wa huwa bil Ufuqil a’la. (7) Thumma dana fatadalla. (8) Fakana qaba qawsayni aw adna. (9) ” (Surat An-Najm)

“One of soundness. And he rose to [his] true form. (6) While he was in the higher [part of the] horizon. (7) Then he approached and descended. (8) And was at a distance of two bow lengths or nearer. (9)” (The Star, 53:6-9)

So then Allah (AJ) wants us to understand your Adamic reality is that always a tajalli (manifestation) is coming down and that you must rise up to grab it. But the tajalli (manifestation) of dunya (material world) is going to take us down.  So then understanding the body, Allah (AJ) sends the perfection of creation to come to tame the body desires. So Muhammad Rasul Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah, that Allah (AJ) sends the reality that: if you want to tame your being as all prophets did, and the master of all prophecy and the master of all reality is then in the prophecy of Sayyidina Muhammad . That Prophet ﷺ comes to teach us that Muhammad Rasul Allah, that Muhammad Rasul Allah.

Reality of Surat Ikhlas (Sincerity) and 6 Points of the Heart

So La ilaha illallah, la ilaha illallah, then at the same, you start from right side of the chest) Muhammad Rasul Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah. Because Allah (AJ) sends the reality of Prophet  to tame the physicality, “teach them about My Oneness.” Teach them that Allah (AJ) is Ahad. Teach them that Allah (AJ), Allah.

Then teach them from Dar ul-Ihsaan, ‘Hu’. “Qul hu Allah Ahad” (Say Allah is One). Hu being the highest reality, then Ahle Allah, the People of the Book who accept the Lordship of Allah (AJ). Then the budparast and polytheists that Prophet ﷺ was sent to teach them Oneness, that Allah (AJ) is Ahad and One.Qul Hu Allah Ahad -Surat Ikhlas

﴾قُلْ هُوَ اللَّـهُ أَحَدٌ ﴿١

112:1 – “Qul Hu Allahu Ahad.” (Surat Al-Ikhlas) 

“Say, He is Allah, [who is] One.” (The Sincerity, 112:1)

Prophet ﷺ Taught Us the Zikr of Allah (AJ)

It means then the reality of the perfection of physicality is in the understanding of Muhammad Rasul Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah. That’s why Prophet came to dunya (material world) to teach us ‘Allah’ (AJ). Prophet came and taught us that, “Say ‘Allah’, say ‘Allah, Allah’,” to extinguish all difficulty, all fires, to come to the Oneness of Allah (AJ). And the key for your paradise is say ‘la ilaha illallah, la ilaha illallah’ (there is no God but Allah).

مَنْ قَالَ لَا اِلَهَ اِلَّا اللهُ دَخَلَ الْجَنَّة

“Man qaala La ilaha illAllah, dakhalal Jannah.”

“Whoever says ‘La ilaha illAllah’ (There is no God but Allah), enters Paradise.” Prophet Muhammad 

Zikr of Allah (AJ) is Upon Prophet Muhammad

Then Allah (AJ), they begin to teach us that the zikr of ‘Allah’ is from Sayyidina Muhammad . The zikr (remembrance) of Allah (AJ) is, “InnAllaha wa mala’ikatahu yusalluna ‘alan Nabi ﷺ.” This means the zikr (remembrance) of Allah (AJ) and His malaika (angels) is on praising and praying upon the reality of Prophet ﷺ. Then the understanding of these two realities is the perfection of Insan al Kamil (Perfected human being).

﴾ّاللَّهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ…  ﴿٥٦

33:56 – “innAllaha wa Malaaikatahu yusalluna ‘alan Nabiyi, … ”  (Surat Al-Ahzab)

“Allah and His angels send blessings upon the Prophet …” (The Combined Forces, 33:56)

Tame Your Physicality to Unlock Your Star

That, to understand the soul, and the soul and the energy that it wants – it wants to be in the ocean of la ilaha illallah. But all the desires stop it from coming to zikr (remembrance). All the desires stop it from praying, all the desires stop it from fasting, all the desires stop it from zakat (charity). All the desires stop it from hajj (pilgrimage). All the desires of the physicality come and overwhelm the body and begin to dress it with bad characteristics.

So then Allah (AJ) not going to leave us to ourselves, saying that, “I know that you have a reality from My paradise. Your soul comes and your energy of your soul comes from My paradise, but you must understand your physicality, tame your physicality,” and at that time you can unlock your star. Unlock the symbol of your soul. Your soul is like a star.

Seek and Accompany the Guides Who are the Stars on Earth

So what Prophet described from his Sahabi? “Follow my Companions, any of them. They are like stars on a dark night.”stars in dark night & moon

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)

This means open the reality of the light. The light is eternal. When people say, “I don’t understand what light is. Is it this light bulb?” Then Allah (AJ), that’s why the analogy of the star. No, that which is eternal, that which you use for guidance, that throughout our lives, they would look to the heavens, look to the stars and they found their guidance. Based on the coordinance of the stars they knew where they were. They traveled by stars. Now we have GPS and it’s lost. But the understanding is that if you look to the heavens, you could find your coordinance. [Pic]

وَهُوَ الَّذِي جَعَلَ لَكُمُ النُّجُومَ لِتَهْتَدُوا بِهَا فِي ظُلُمَاتِ الْبَرِّ وَالْبَحْرِ ۗ قَدْ فَصَّلْنَا الْآيَاتِ لِقَوْمٍ يَعْلَمُونَ ﴿٩٧

6:97 – “Wa huwal ladhee ja’ala lakumun nujooma litahtado biha fee Zhulumati albarri wal bahri, qad fasSalnal ayati liqawmin ya’lamoon.” (Surat Al-An’am)

“And it is He who placed for you the stars that you may be guided by them through the darknesses of the land and sea. We have detailed the signs for people who know.” (The Cattle, 6:97)

Then Allah (AJ) saying, “Look to dunya. The people whose realities they are stars, and they are stars on a dark night. By looking at them, accompanying them, being with them you should find the reality that you are seeking of the Divinely Presence.”

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللّهَ وَكُونُوا مَعَ الصَّادِقِينَ ﴿١١٩

9:119 – “Ya ayyuhal ladheena amanoo ittaqollaha wa konoma’as sadiqeen.” (Surat At-Tawba)

“O you who have believed, fear Allah and be with those who are true.” (The Repentance, 9:119)

Accept Prophet Muhammad ﷺ to Perfect Your Star

Medistar copyThen the perfection of that, when the body needs to be tamed. How this comes together is when the body needs to be tamed and Allah (AJ) says, “Tame that body,” which means, “go and accept Muhammadun Rasulallah .” As soon as you accept and say ‘Ashhadu an la ilaha illAllah wa ashhadu anna Muhammadan ‘Abduhu wa Habibuhu wa Rasuluhu ’ (There is no God but Allah, and Prophet Muhammad (saws) is His Servent, His Beloved, and His Messenger)

Then what Prophet begins to inspire: la ilaha illallah, make your zikr (remembrance) of Allah (AJ), read Holy Qur’an. All of that is the power of the soul. Then they begin to show us that for the physicality to be tamed and the reality of your soul to come out, that is the perfection of your star.

The Interaction of the Two Triangles in the Star

Then each, when you begin to look at it- because the people of tafakkur (contemplation), they have to contemplate. If la ilaha illallah, if la ilaha illallah is my soul reality and Muhammad Rasulallah is then taming of my physicality, then look at both and how they are interacting. Muhammadun ilaha.

Rasul and illallah: Then for your heart to have illallah, it must be with Rasul . So Allah (AJ) saying, “No way your heart going to have illallah but Allah (AJ) unless it’s with the tajalli of My Rasul (alaihis salaatus salaam).

Allah and LA –  The reality of ‘Allah’ is in the secret of Lam Alif (LA)

The only way to open the reality of Allah (AJ), the real reality, and why Allah (AJ) is in the body and the physical understanding is that in this dunya (material world), the power of Allah (AJ) has to come to conquer the physicality. At that time, they begin to teach that to open the real reality of Allah (AJ) is in the secret of lam alif. And the people of silaat and Islamic martial arts, they call lam jalala, that to understand and move now in the Ocean of Ma’rifa (self-realization) is lam alif.

So where do you see lam alif? In Zulfiqar, the sword of Sayyidina ‘Ali (as) is Zulfiqar. The hand is the circle and the two heads is the point. The owner of that reality, where Prophet , said “Ana madinatul ‘ilm wa ‘Ali baabe Hu.”

أَنَا مَدِيْنَةُ الْعِلْمٍ وَ عَلِيٌّ بَابُهَا

“Ana madinatul ‘ilmin wa ‘Aliyyun baabuha.”

“I am the city of knowledge and ‘Ali (as) is its door/gatekeeper.” Prophet Muhammad ﷺ

Bab-hu means he is the door for that reality (alaihis salaam) and all the Sahabi, bless them, they are all inside that reality. But where we see that lam alif is Zulfiqar, in the sword of Sayyidina ‘Ali (as). Then the reality of lam alif and the teaching, but that’s not for tonight. This is the understanding of how to tame the reality, how to open the star and the importance of the star.

Now if other people are using it, because they know the secret of it, and all the people of reality know the secret of it, but Muslims have left everything. And why Muslims have no victory in anything they do? Because they left reality, they left the love of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.

You Can’t Conquer Anything If You Can’t Conquer Yourself

If you cannot have victory over yourself, you have victory over nothing. You can conquer nothing if you can’t conquer yourself. Prophet ﷺ teaching, and teaching Ummat un-Nabi ﷺ that, “How you’re going to have victory in anything you do if you don’t have victory within yourself?”

And the victory of the self is to know oneself. We get to know ourself that this body can only be tamed by Muhammad Rasul Allah. Muhammad Rasul Rasul must be in my heart for illAllah to come. It’s Up, right, left- (because it’s written like that for you). La ilaha illallah, then again from right to left, Muhammad Rasul Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah.

Triangle of Islam, Iman, Ihsan – Upward Triangle

Then to understand you have Islam (submission). In your heart you must have iman (faith). And to open up the reality of your soul dar ul-ihsaan (station of moral excellence), so it is the upward triangle.

This is all in the understanding of how to open the reality of the kalimah and this is in the fiqh (jurisprudence) of tawhid (oneness of Allah), and this is in the fiqh (jurisprudence) of ‘don’t make shirk’. What Prophet feared most was for shirk (polytheism). It was not the shirk of idols (worshipping). He says, “I fear most is the hidden shirk for my community.” And the hidden shirk is ‘ananiyah’, is that when we put ourself in everything. When we begin to worship and pray to ourselves. When we begin to feel ourself is important. It means this is all based on fiqh, this is the fiqh of tawhid (oneness of Allah). That La ilaha illallah Muhammad Rasulallah, the only way to reach la ilaha illallah is through the reality of Muhammadun Rasulallah . [Hds]

If Iman (Faith) in the Heart, the Face Shines Like a Moon

Then they begin to show us in dunya (material world) that if you want the reality of the soul- Islam, iman wal ihsaan– Islam, your right side. What hits your heart? Iman. If iman is in your heart, Islam is your foundation, it’s firm, dar ul-ihsaan will show through your face. So they described Prophet as the shining moon. Why the moon? Because his heart is the sun. If the heart is shining and the body is submitting, your face will shine from the light of your heart.

طَلَعَ الْبَدْرُ عَلَيْنَا                                                 مِنْ ثَنِيَاتِ الْوَدَاعْ
وَجَبَ الشُّكْرُ عَلَيْنَا                                                    مَا دَعَا لِلّهِ دَاعْ

Tala’al badru ‘alayna                    Min thaniyatil wada’a
Wa jabash shukuru ‘alayna          Ma da’aa lillahi da’a

O’ the full moon rose above us, From the valley of Wada’a,
Gratitude is our obligation, as long as any caller calls to Allah

But most people’s faces are darkened by their egos, because they are trying to put out something from their head that doesn’t exist within their heart. It’s a facade. The reality is that there must be Islam, there must be submission. Somebody comes and says, “Oh I can do this, I can do that, I can heal,” oh don’t say anything. You are a magician and a liar. You have to be submitting. If you are submitting and your physicality- your donkey is what we consider it- if the donkey is tamed, maybe iman (faith) has entered into the heart. If your donkey is wild and crazy, there is no iman (faith) in your heart. If there’s no iman (faith)in your heart nothing going to be shining through your face. You can put all the mirage you want but there’s no light coming through.

So then this is the knowledge of the self, this is the knowledge, “He who knows himself knows his Lord.” So all of that is from one hadith of Prophet and begins to open an ocean. 

مَنْ عَرَفَ نَفْسَهْ فَقَدْ عَرَفَ رَبَّهُ

“Man ‘arafa nafsahu faqad ‘arafa Rabbahu”

“Who knows himself, knows his Lord.” Prophet Muhammad ﷺ

Get to know yourself and your reality, that foundation of your soul must be Islam. The foundation of that Islam, will open (Iman).

Prophet Explained the Religion as: Islam, Iman, Ihsan

These are the three from the hadith of Sayyidina Jibra’il that asked Prophet , “Explain this deen to us.” And a man came from the desert all in white and beautiful hair and said, “Islam, iman wal ihsaan.” What is the abode of ihsaan? He ﷺ says “Pray as if you see Allah (AJ) and if you don’t see Allah (AJ) know He sees you.”

قَالَ: فَأَخْبِرْنِي عَنْ الْإِحْسَانِ، قَالَ: أَنْ تَعْبُدَ اللَّهَ كَأَنَّك تَرَاهُ، فَإِنْ لَمْ تَكُنْ تَرَاهُ فَإِنَّهُ يَرَاك

“Qala Fa akhberni ‘an al Ihsan.
Qala: An Ta’bud Allaha, Ka annaka tarahu, fa in lam takun tarahu fa innahu yarak.”

“Now, tell me about spiritual excellence (ihsan).             
The Prophet (pbuh) replied, “It is to serve/worship Allah as though you behold/see Him; and if you don’t behold/see him, (know that) He surely sees you.” Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)

This means all of these are in hadith of Prophet given to us as a symbol of a triangle. Later the symbol of the triangle you’ll see it in everything in our lives. So this triangle has nothing to do with the fir’auns (pharoahs) – they copied everything because they are from a dajjal system. They copy the reality. The darkness always mimics the light. They know there is a secret in it and they copy it, and they think by copying it they can make their schemes and things to happen. Impossible! because ‘Izzatullah, Allah (AJ) has to open the reality. So always you’ll see the parallel of a reality copied by the world of darkness. But then the world of darkness advertises it and everybody says, “Ooh, this is something like this!” That’s not correct. If it had no power they wouldn’t be using it, but they use it for their darkness.

Anger, Ignorance, and Fire – Downward Triangle

The understanding of that, Islam, imaan wal ihsaan, then Allah (AJ) is describing that your body, that anger, ignorance and fire- so goes ignorance, anger, fire, ignorance (right side), anger (left), and fire (downward).  So without the perfection of your soul, your Islam conquers what? Ignorance, because this will go over on this side, and the two will begin to work on each other.

Ignorance is Opposite of Islam (Submission)

How to, this is your body desires before submission. The body is ruled by ignorance. People who are ignorant are angry, because they don’t know anything and they’re sitting in the dark. And if you turn the lights off here and the person hits their head a couple of times, they become very angry. They say, “What is this? I don’t understand this!” So then to turn the light on, to open the light of the soul, Allah (AJ) begins to release the reality of Islam to all the prophets. They brought ‘Innad deena, indallah ul-Islam’, (The religion with God is Islam).

إِنَّ الدِّينَ عِندَ اللَّـهِ الْإِسْلَامُ ۗ … ﴿١٩

3:19 – “Innad deena ‘indAllahil Islam” (Surat Al-Imran)

“The religion with God is Islam…” (Family of Imran, 3:19)

That every prophet brought Islam to submit to the level of their community. The completion of Islam is through Sayyidina Muhammad . The ma’rifah (self-realization) and the reality of Prophet’s ﷺ Isra wal-Mi’raj (Night of Ascension) gave permission now for all creation to understand its reality.

Anger is Kufr and Opposite of Iman (Faith) – Then Wash and Ask Forgiveness

Then how to conquer ignorance must be through Islam, but if you are ignorant you have a tremendous amount of anger in the heart. And what Prophet ﷺ described of anger as kufr (disbelief). Anger is kufr (disbelief). As soon as you became angry, you came out of Islam. That’s why you have to go make wudu (ablution), make your shahada (testimony of faith) and pray istighfar (forgiveness). Pray two rakah asking forgiveness every time you become angry. Every time you become suspicious, every time you are backbiting, every time you enter the ocean of bad character, you have to wash and pray two rakat and ask for forgiveness.

عَنْ عَطِيَّةْ بِنْ عُرْوَةُ الْسَعْدِيْ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ, عَنَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ

إِنَّ الْغَضَبَ مِنْ الشَّيْطَانِ وَإِنَّ الشَّيْطَانَ خُلِقَ مِنْ النَّارِ وَإِنَّمَا تُطْفَأُ النَّارُ بِالْمَاءِ فَإِذَا غَضِبَ أَحَدُكُمْ فَلْيَتَوَضَّأْ.
[روى الإمام أحمد في “المسند” (29/505) وأبو داود (4784
)]

‘An ‘Atiyat bin ‘Urwatul Sa’di (ra) ‘Anan Nabi (saws) Qal:
“’Annal ghadaba minash shaitani wa innash shaitana khuliqa minan Naar, wa innama tutfa annaaru bil Maayi fa iza ghadeba ahadakum falyatawadda.” [Rawayil Imam Ahmad fil Musanad wa Abu Dawud]

Atiyah Bin Orwah Alsaadi (ra) said, that the messenger of Allah (pbuh) said: ” Anger is from Satan, and Satan was created from fire, and in which fire is extinguished by water,. So if one of you got angry he should make Wudu (ablution) “.  [Narrated by Imam Ahmad in his Musnad (29/505, and Imam Abu Dawood (4784)]

Who Occupies your Heart – is it Throne Ar Rahman or Shaytan?

At that time they begin to teach that if you really had iman in your heart, how could you have anger, ghadab? So one time Sayyidina Abu Bakr as-Siddiq got angry, Prophet ﷺ got up and walked away. Prophet ﷺ presents Divinely Presence. It was a teaching for us: as soon as anger comes into your heart, qul ja al haqq wa zahaqal batil,

﴾وَ قُلْ جَآءَالْحَقُّ وَزَهَقَ الْبَطِلُ، إِنَّ الْبَطِلَ كَانَ زَهُوقًا ﴿٨١

17:81 – “Wa qul jaa alhaqqu wa zahaqal baatil, innal batila kana zahooqa.” (Surat Al-Isra)

“And say, Truth has come, and falsehood has departed. Indeed is falsehood, [by nature], ever bound to depart.” (The Night Journey, 17:81)

That Allah (AJ) saying, “I am the Haqq and that shaytanic anger is falsehood. The two of us are not going to sit in your heart.” Who is going to be occupying your heart? Is it Arsh ar-Rahman or is it the throne of shaytaan?  So it is a deep understanding of our self, that, “Ya Rabbi, I’m overtaken by ignorance. I don’t know anything and I don’t know anything about myself. As a result of not knowing anything I’m constantly angry, suspicious, jealous, hasad – jealous of everything, jealous of everyone, jealous of everything everybody has.” All of the root of that character creates a fire. Every bad characteristic creates a fire within the heart. That fire becomes so strong – that is your ticket to jahannam (hellfire). Allah (AJ) says, “I don’t have to do anything. You have so much fire in your being it is of a fiery nature. By its nature, it will move towards the fire.” And this is the fire of azab (difficulty).

Extinguish the Fire of Anger and Turn it to Love

If we don’t extinguish that fire and turn it into the ocean of FrontHeartwhite1muhabbah, love. Love is faith. More hadith, that Sayyidina Umar came to Prophet and brought half his wealth. And Sayyidina Abu Bakr as-Siddiq (as) came and brought all his life to the threshold of the Prophet . It is a long hadith and Prophet asked, ‘Ya Umar (AS), you have to 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

Love is the Symbol of Iman (Faith)

Then love was the symbol of iman, that you will not have faith within your heart without love, and Heart - Muhammad (saws) Naqshed on itlove for who? Love for Sayyidina Muhammad , more than you love yourself.

The ashiqeen (lovers of Prophet ), they love Prophet  more than themselves. They sacrificed themselves for Prophet , every day asking Allah (AJ), “How can I be of service to the light of Prophet so that Prophet be happy?” If Prophet is happy, Allah (AJ) is happy.

Reality of 666 – System of Dajjal 

So begin to teach us that, that body desire, if we don’t know this ignorance, don’t know this anger and don’t understand why we have fire. Where will you have fire? In your genitals. If you’re ignorant and you’re angry, you can’t control your genitals and they are on fire. Either there’s abundant amounts of sex or violence, and both of them are now rampant in this world. Both of them, they kill and do anything they want to anything and anyone. And these are all a sign of the lower desire.

Then if you just try to understand that these pyramids, these triangles are 60 degrees. 60 degrees, we don’t have a zero in this one, we have nukht, so that becomes 666. So the understanding of dajjal in their book- it’s not in our book, they don’t know their book. In their book, 666 was a symbol of the antichrist. Antichrist, anti-Christ teaching because everything about them is hub ud dunya (love of material world).  Everything about them is the love of dunya (material world). They like to be ignorant and they want people to be ignorant. They like anger and they thrive and they breed and produce anger, and as a result: they love the fire. Everything is about sex and killing now. Turn the TV on now and everybody’s killing everybody, or having sex with everybody. And this is the system of dajjal (antichrist).

And this is the reality of only three 6’s which is 18, which is hayat (living). So Allah (AJ) says, “I’ve given you hayat, I’ve given you a life but if you life is purely for your physicality you are in a dajjal system. You are in satan’s hands and if the master of satan appears in your lifetime, you will be following him.” So Prophet came and said, “Prepare. You never know when the master, the leader of satan appears,”.

Complete the Star with Heavenly Reality 18
Six 6s is 36 – Surat YaSeen – Heart of Quran

Prophets said that, “don’t let yourself to be from hayat of dunya,” that, “counter the hayat of dunya with the hayat of akhirah, with 3 more 6’s.” The combination of six 6s will come to us to now. Six 6s is 36. 36- ‘YaSeen. Wal-Qur’an al-hakim’. (Chapter 36 of Holy Quran)

﴾يس ﴿١﴾ وَالْقُرْآنِ الْحَكِيمِ ﴿٢

36:1-2 – “Ya-Seen. (1) Wal Qur’anal Hakeem. (2)” (Surat YaSeen)

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

Allah (AJ) says, “The heart of my Qur’an is Surat YaSeen.” Surat YaSeen is Sayyidina YaSeen (alaihis salaatus salaam), is right here. That Allah (AJ) says, “If you’re fearful of this reality (666) and you want my heavenly reality you must be with the six 6s,” not just the people of hayat al-dunya, just they only chasing after dunya (material world), but the people whose souls are alive, their hearts are alive and they’re able to bring these realities. Only the 6s of the heaven, the 18 of the heaven, they are the Ahl ul-Hayy, wal-kiram al-Hayy (people of The Ever-living). They are from the Oceans of Hayyat. Their zikr is ‘Hayy, Hayy, Hayy, Hayy’ from the ocean of the soul; they don’t hear anybody from the dajjal saying ‘Hayy’. 

Victory and Allah’s (AJ) Mighty Support – Nasran ‘Aziza

Only at that time, the people of that reality, they can come to the people of dunya (material world) desires andMuhammadan Soldier begin to teach them: you say Muhammadun Rasul Allah and that the love of Sayyidina Muhammad will overtake your body. And the zikr (chanting) of la ilaha illAllah will open the soul and the perfection of Prophet will come, and becomes what, Suratul Fath, ‘The Victory’ (Chapter 48 of Holy Qur’an).

So the only victory that is a sure victory is if this reality begins to open. If the love of Prophet overtakes the physicality and keeps asking, “Ya Rabbi, open my soul,” Allah (AJ) says, “Then love Prophet . If you want My victory, a manifest victory, “Inna fatahna laka ‘fathan mubinah. Li yaghfira laka-Llah ma taqaddam min dhambika wa ma ta’akhar’…,

﴾إِنَّا فَتَحْنَا لَكَ فَتْحًا مُّبِينًا ﴿١﴾ لِّيَغْفِرَ لَكَ اللَّـهُ مَا تَقَدَّمَ مِن ذَنبِكَ وَمَا تَأَخَّرَ وَيُتِمَّ نِعْمَتَهُ عَلَيْكَ وَيَهْدِيَكَ صِرَاطًا مُّسْتَقِيمًا ﴿٢

48:1-2 – “Innaa fatahna laka fatham mubina. (1) liyaghfira lakaallaahu maa taqaddama min dhanbika wa maa taakhkhara wa yutimma ni’matahu ‘alayka wa yahdiyaka siraathan mustaqima. (2)” (Surat Al-Fath)

“Indeed, We granted you, [O Muhammad], a manifest Victory. (1) That Allah may forgive you your faults of the past and those to follow; and fulfil His favor upon you and guide you to a straight path. (2)” (The Victory, 48:2)

I’m going to forgive you all your sins, from the past and future. And I’m going to grant you forgiveness, ‘Wa yansuru kallahu nasran ‘aziza’.

﴾وَيَنصُرَ‌كَ اللَّـهُ نَصْرً‌ا عَزِيزًا ﴿٣

48:3 – “wa yansurakAllahu nasran ‘aziza.” (Surat Al-Fath)

“And [that] Allah may help you with a mighty victory.” (The Victory, 48:3)

What’s Allah’s (AJ) ‘nasran aziza’? Allah (AJ) saying, “I’m going to grant you a mighty support.” Allah (AJ) saying, “I’m going to grant you a might support. I’m going to grant your heart a victory, I’m going to grant your heart these realities more,” because he’s not granting it to me and you. But if your body is in love with Sayyidina Muhammad and the love of la ilaha illallah, la ilaha illallah, la ilaha illallah, that victory already given to Prophet . That Mawlana is teaching that Prophet  feekum, that he is already in you.

﴾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-Baqarah) 

“Just as We have sent (within) you a messenger from yourselves reciting to you Our verses, and purifying you, and teaching you the Book and wisdom and teaching you that which you did not know.” (The Cow, 2:151)

That light is already in you. If you are nourishing that light, the victory is already there. You just have to bring that light and that love out. Prophet will bring the victory to the body. He’s already victorious to the soul, it’s just the physical body has to submit.

When it submits, the Nur Muhammad begins to come. The Nur Muhammadun Rasul Allah – only through Muhammadun Rasul on the tongue, is Allah (AJ). At that time with the love of Sayyidina Muhammad , he begins to inspire us: now you say ‘Allah, Allah, Allah’– not Allah (AJ) from outside, but Allah (AJ) from inside”. This means that inside the love of Prophet ﷺ. When they say ‘Allah’ (AJ) they say it real. They say it real because it’s in the heart of Prophet .

We pray that in these holy 10 days of ma’rifah (self-realization)Kaba in the heart and moving towards the Holy Kabah, the symbol of the Holy Kabah is that, ‘Qalb al-mu’min bayt-Allah’.

قَلْبَ الْمُؤْمِنْ بَيْتُ الرَّبْ

“Qalb al mu’min baytur rabb.”

“The heart of the believer is the House of the Lord.” Hadith Qudsi

Allah (AJ) saying, “The heart of My believer is My house,” that, “the Kabah that you built, you built with your hands. My Tajalli, My Blessing is on that Ka’bah, but what I built with My two Hands and I blew from my spirit into it is the heart of the believer.” And what believer Allah (AJ) talking about is the reality of Muhammadun Rasulallah .

Upper and Lower Triangles Are an Analogy

Everything again is always an analogy- there is no triangles. It’s just an analogy – up and down, upper reality, lower reality. What they know now from dunya (material world) and how you have your DNA is called a double helix. If you look at the double helix, it’s just a series of lam alif, lam alif, lam alif, lam alif. And everything is in the DNA, which means everything is in the reality of lam alif. DNA is what, dunya, DNA. Allah (AJ) says, “You don’t have to guess so hard. Most of these things are right in front of you.”

Subhan rabbika rabbil ‘izzati ‘amma yasifoon, wa salaamun ‘alal mursaleen, walhamdulillahi rabbil ‘aalameen. Ila Sharafin Nabi Muhammad ﷺ wa ala alihi wa ashabihi wal kiram. Al-Fatiha
