Wuquf ul Qalb – Vigilance of the Heart
Heart is the Sun of Your Universe
The Sun (Heart), The Moon (Head), and the 11 Organs
Energy of Your Breath – Lungs
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
ĵahal If not for the Grace of Allah (AJ) and the Rahmah of Allah (AJ), we would not be in existence. We are not claiming to be anything and asking to reach Allah’s (AJ) Rahmah and Mercy.
In the holy month of Dhul Hajj and the holy hajj (pilgrimage), these are the blessed days. These are the days in which Allah (AJ) wants to gift to the servant the lights of Divine Realities. That all of the Heavens are open from malakut (heavenly realm) to mulk (earthly realm), everything opened to begin to dress the souls of servants. Those who are ascending through their Islam (submission), through their iman (faith), through their Maqaam al-Ihsan (Station of Moral Excellence) means these are the holy nights in which Allah (AJ) is blessing and dressing.
Hajj (Pilgrimage) is the Pay Day – Reward of 12 Months Journey
Those who took a path of every year starting in Muharram to imitate the way of awliyaullah (saints) where they understood there are twelve hijabs (veils), and their life is a constant hijrah (migration) into the Divinely Presence. They take a path and follow Ahl al-Haqaaiq, the People of Realities. Alhamdulillah this is the pay day. This month and these ten days [first 10 days of Dhul Hijja] are the days in which Allah (AJ) dresses that servant who has been traveling through the deserts of dunya (material world) and coming on to their twelfth month through all their testings, and everything throughout the year. This is the time in which Allah (AJ) and the rahmah (mercy) of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ begins to dress. The barakah (blessings) of awliyaullah (saints) begins to dress and bless these souls and we pray that Allah (AJ) includes us amongst them.
We are coming only by means of our love for Allah (AJ), love for Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, love for awliyaullah (saints) and pious people. We claim nothing and our actions are nothing and we pray Allah (AJ) be Ghaforur Raheem (All Forgiving, Most Merciful) and forgives us where we are coming short. Allah’s (AJ) Greatness and Azimat is something that can’t be imagined. My smallness is so small that I am astonished if Allah (AJ) even notices me. It means He can wipe out sins in an instant. All we have to do is ask and Allah (AJ) grants inshaAllah.
Know the Arbab (Lords) That Govern You
In these holy months, a reminder for ourselves that the reality of hajj (pilgrimage) is infinite in its understanding. For Ahlul Tazkiya and the people who are trying to clean themselves that from holy Hadith of Prophet ﷺ, “Who knows himself will know His Lord.”
مَنْ عَرَفَ نَفْسَهْ فَقَدْ عَرَفَ رَبَّهُ
“Man ‘arafa nafsa hu faqad ‘arafa Rabba hu”
“Who knows himself, knows his Lord.” Prophet Muhammad ﷺ
Who does not know himself will not know his Lord. So we took a path in which we are trying to know ourself. That way of knowing the self means you are going to find all the rabs (Lords) and all the arbab (lords) that are governing insan (humankind). So there is not only one rab, Allah (AJ). Allah (AJ) is the Creator! But there are many lords upon this heart, that are governing this body not to submit, not to pray, not to fast, not to give in charity. Had we conquered these rabs and destroyed the false lords that govern this body, we could be walking on water. We whould be seeing the Seven Heavens and hearing the zikr (chanting) of malaika, angels.
This means if we didn’t achieve that, then they are reminding us: there are many lords upon your heart. These were the idols in which Prophet ﷺ was fighting – 360 idols in Makkah. Makkah is the state of the heart. 360 idols that were blocking and encompassing Makkah because it is significant for the heart. It means that we have 360 lata’if (subtle energy points) on the body. Each one of them has an idol on its place that is trying to block us from submission to Allah (AJ).
So then we took a path of realities and what we talked about last night is that Sayyidina Yusuf (as), the 12th Surat [of Holy Quran] for the common people because this reality will go all the way up till 9×12 which is the Kawthar [108th chapter of Holy Quran]. Ahli Kawthar means the people of marifah (self-realization) are moving from base 9. They move through the Surat of Tawbah all the way to the 12th hijab (veil) which is Surat Al-Kawthar.
For us common people, we are on the 12th Surat of Holy Qur’an as an example for us in this holy 12th month, the month of completion. Where Sayyidina Yusuf (as) is inspiring within ourselves that, “You are going to be thrown into a hole, into a well and you are going to be isolated,” and then all our life is about fixing that self.
Islam is Not a Label, It’s the Action of Submitting
That before the hajj (pilgrimage) and from Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem ati ullah ati ar Rasula wa ulul amri minkum,
﴾أَطِيعُواللَّه وَأَطِيعُوٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ ﴿٥٩
4:59 – “…Atiullaha 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)
Islam (submission), iman (faith) wal Maqaam al Ihsan (Station of Moral Excellence). These are three that are governing our entire life. Maqaam al Ihsan (Station of Moral Excellence) from ati ullah (obedience to Allah (AJ)). Maqaam al Iman (Station of Faith) from the obedience to Prophet ﷺ where Prophet ﷺ describes that, “You have to love me more than 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 ﷺ
Then you have the Maqaam of Iman (Station of Faith). Ulul amri minkum means to follow the ulul amr (saints) in our lives. That is the way to achieve our Islam (submission).
- Maqam al Ihsan – from ati ullah – Obedience to Allah (AJ)
- Maqam al Iman – from the obedience to Prophet ﷺ: To love Prophet ﷺ more than yourself
- Maqam of Islam – from Ulul amri minkum: To follow the ulul amr (saints) to achieve Islam (submission)
Islam Means Submission
Islam is not a noun that you wear upon yourself and say, “I am a Muslim.” You are not a Muslim until you reach submission. Once you have reached submission, Allah (AJ) declares the title, “Now you are a Muslim. You are somebody who is submitting.” If you are not somebody who is submitting, then you are merely wearing Islam like it is a Versace or Polo. It is just a noun. It is not really an action for us.
First Make Inner Hajj (Pilgrimage) to the Ka’bah of Your Heart
So we took a path of action that Allah (AJ) inspired us. Allah (AJ) took us and threw us onto that path. On that path, these ulul amr (saints) inspire that before that (physical) hajj (pilgrimage), make the hajj (pilgrimage) within yourself. When Allah (AJ) talks about His Holy House, He is talking about your heart. That you have a Ka’bah within yourself and that make your heart My House. It means bring Me into your heart. The heart that is occupied with everything of this material world. It’s occupied by its desires, its hawa. It is occupied by its wants. It is occupied by what it wants to eat and see and do. Those are all rab, these are all the arbab (lords) of dunya (material world) that block the body and say, “Don’t submit to Rabbi al ‘Aala. Don’t submit to the Lord Most High. Submit to our desires.”
So our hajj (pilgrimage) is not only the $15,000 package in Saudi Arabia, but the first hajj (pilgrimage) is within ourselves. It is so easy. So, nobody can say, “Ya Rabbi, I didn’t have the means to make it.” No, you slept with that being everyday. That hajj (pilgrimage) is you. That way is within us. There is no ticket required, you see him or her every night. What they want from us is then the House, your heart, is the Holy Ka’bah of Allah (AJ). Busy yourself going into your heart. Busy yourself with all your being.
Alif, Lam, Ra الر – The Reality of Rabbaniyoon
Sayyidina Yusuf (as) reminds us because it is a big reality. Alif, Laam, Ra, because this is the reality of the Rabaniyoon.
﴾الر ۚ تِلْكَ آيَاتُ الْكِتَابِ الْمُبِينِ ﴿١
12:1 – “Alif-Laaam-Raa; tilka Aayaatul Kitaabil Mubeen” (Surah Yusuf)
“Alif, Lam, Ra. These are the verses of the clear Book.” (Joseph, 12:1)
Izzatullah, bi lisaan al Haqq into the Laam of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, and the Ra, these are the stories, the qisas of the arbab. These are the souls, the lordly souls. These are not the houses of the commoners but the house of lords. It means Allah (AJ) has gifted to souls lofty titles.
Alif ا – Izzatullah (Allah (AJ))
Laam ل – Lisan ul Haq (RasulAllah ﷺ)
Raa ر – Rabaniyoon (Ulul Amr)
If we keep ourselves to be from commoners means we are not trying to reach towards the Heavens. We are trying to be people of the barnyard who eat, drink and poo poo. Allah (AJ) said that is why I sent you down because you ate and you weren’t supposed to go to the bathroom in Paradise. It means that is not our reality. Our reality is the lofty titles. The lofty soul which Allah (AJ) wants from us, “Be Rabbaniyoon.” I think it is in Surat Al-Imran, verse 79.
﴾وَلَـٰكِن كُونُوا رَبَّانِيِّينَ بِمَا كُنتُمْ تُعَلِّمُونَ الْكِتَابَ وَبِمَا كُنتُمْ تَدْرُسُونَ ﴿٧٩…
3:79 – “…wa lakin kono rabbaniyena bima kuntum tu`allimoonal kitaba wabima kuntum tadrusoon.” (Surat Al-Imran)
“…Be Lordly Souls/faithful servants/worshippers of Him, Because (of what) you have taught the Book and you have studied it earnestly.” (Family of Imran, 3:79)
Be Rabbaniyoon. You learned the kitab (book) and you taught the kitab (book) and your whole life is to be from that reality.
The Sun, the Moon, and 11 Stars Bowing to Awliyaullah (saints)
So Sayyidina Yusuf (as) comes and teaches, “Ya Baba, I am having a dream that the 11 planets are bowing to me and the Sun and the Moon are bowing to me.”
﴾إِذْ قَالَ يُوسُفُ لِأَبِيهِ يَا أَبَتِ إِنِّي رَأَيْتُ أَحَدَ عَشَرَ كَوْكَبًا وَالشَّمْسَ وَالْقَمَرَ رَأَيْتُهُمْ لِي سَاجِدِينَ ﴿٤
12:4 – “Idh qala Yosufu li abeehi ya abati innee raaytu ahada Ashara kawkaban wash Shamsa wal Qamara raaytuhum le sajideen.” (Surat Yusuf)
“[Of these stories mention] when Joseph said to his father, “O my father, indeed I have seen eleven stars and the sun and the moon; I saw them prostrating to me.” (Joseph, 12:4)
Awliyaullah (saints) come into our life and teach that that is the reality of awliyaullah (saints). What did Prophet ﷺ describe from the prophets of Bani Israel (children of Israel)? That my ulama (scholars), they inherit the realities and the stations of Bani Israel (children of Israel) and the prophets of Bani Israel (children of Israel).
عُلَمَاءِ وَرِثَةُ الْأَنْبِيَاء
“Ulama e warithatul anbiya.”
“The scholars are the inheritors of the prophets.”
Sayyidina Yusuf (as) is inspiring within our hearts that, “I saw the 11 planets, the Sun and the Moon under my control,” because bowing is only for Allah (AJ). This was a bow of ihtiram (respect) to show when Allah (AJ) is going to give His Mulk (earthly realm), He is going to give command of that entire galaxy to that prophet.
Allah (AJ) Gives Awliya (Saints) From Malakut (Heavens), Not Dunya (Material World)
We talked last night that one understanding was the eleven brothers, Sayyidina Yaqub and his wife, but they are place holders for a reality. This is insan (human being). Allah (AJ) doesn’t care for dunya (material world). From malakut (heavenly realm) and into the World of Light.
He is describing that when Allah (AJ) gives awliyaullah, gives pious people, He doesn’t give them cash. He doesn’t give them an accounting license. He gives from His Heavens. He says, “This Heaven is under your control. These stars are under your control. This Moon is under your control. This Sun is under your control.”
How many galaxies do we have within this universe? Billions! So Allah (AJ) is not running out. He says, “I can bring a galaxy in an instant and you will be placed under control of it. That is what I want to give to you from the Mulk of the Heavens, the Mulk of dunya (material world) and then from the malakut, malakut kulli shayy (all encompassing).” Glory be to the hand that encompasses the malakut. That one holds everything.
﴾فَسُبْحَانَ الَّذِي بِيَدِهِ مَلَكُوتُ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَإِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ ﴿٨٣
36:83 – “Fasubhanal ladhee biyadihi Malakotu kulli shay in wa ilayhi turja’oon.” (Surat YaSeen)
“Therefore Glory be to Him in Whose hand is the dominion/ kingdom over everything in heavens, and to Him you will be returned.” (YaSeen, 36:83)
Then Sayyidina Yusuf (as) comes and inspires within our heart: there is a big prize! Don’t think that it is something small, that Allah (AJ) “wa laqad karamna bani adam,
﴾وَلَقَدْ كَرَّمْنَا بَنِي آدَمَ…﴿٧٠
17:70 – “Wa laqad karramna bani adama…” (Surat Al-Isra)
“And We have certainly honored the children of Adam…” (The Night Journey, 17:70)
I want to give you what you can’t imagine, what awliyaullah (saints) are in charge of. I want to give that to you. I want these 11 planets and the Sun and the Moon to be at your feet under your command but you must govern yourself accordingly.”
The Universe Within: Sun (Heart), Moon (Face), and 11 Organs
What they begin to inspire, when you look within yourself and contemplate and meditate within yourself that you have eleven essential organs. You have a heart which is your shams (sun), and you have a head, your brain, your face, which is your qamar (moon). So Allah (AJ), like every father says: if you can manage the small I will give you the big one to manage. But if you can’t manage yourself, how am I going to give you from My Heavens to be under your control?
So then our whole tazkiyya (purification) is about understanding myself. What is the reality of my organs? What is the reality of my sun, my heart? What is the reality of the moon that is my face?
The Condition of the Heart Affects the Whole Body
So then other people and other religions busy themselves trying to open their energy and play with other planets because they work on a different system. Awliyaullah (saints) from Prophet ﷺ, “There is one focus for you, it is the heart. There is one piece of the flesh. If it is good, all of you is good. If it is bad, all of you is bad.”
أَلا وَإِنَّ فِى الْجَسَدِ مُضْغَةً إِذَا صَلَحَتْ صَلَحَ الْجَسَدُ كُلُّهُ، وَإِذَا فَسَدَتْ فَسَدَ الْجَسَدُ كُلُّهُ، أَلا وَهِى الْقَلْبُ
“Ala wa inna fil Jasadi mudghatan idha salahat salahal jasadu kulluho, wa idha fasadat fasadal jasadu kulluho, ala wa heyal Qalb.”
“There is a piece of flesh in the body, if it becomes good (reformed) the whole body becomes good but if it gets spoiled the whole body gets spoiled and that is the heart.” Prophet Muhammad ﷺ
So he taught them, taught the Companions, taught the Ahl al Bayt (family of Prophet ﷺ), taught awliyaullah (saints). You want to inherit from the Heavens? You want to inherit from the Heavens, go into the heart. Don’t waste your time on anything else. This is not about the brain. This is not about the endocrine system. This is not about the liver. This is about only the heart. Conquer the heart! Who governs the heart governs the entire body!
Our Way is Waquf ul Qalb – Vigilance of the Heart
Then the way of marifah (self-realization), they begin to look and contemplate into the heart and they begin to observe all the desires of the heart. Be vigilant upon the heart that every word the ulul amr (saints) speak and teach, how is it affecting my heart? If my heart is palpitating and becoming nervous, something is wrong. It means waquf – vigilance of the heart. Your whole life is about being vigilant with your heart. Every reality they are teaching, is it causing distress in the heart? Why? Then there is something there, there is an issue. Is there a desire that governs the heart that is in conflict with what they are teaching of these realities?
It means our way is based then on complete vigilance over the heart. When we are observing the heart and the desires and wants that are coming into the heart. This means how then to protect the heart? How then to bless and clean the heart? Where Allah (AJ) describes, “This is My house. Clean it wash it, bless it and circumambulate around it.”
Be Cautious When You Don’t Want Zikrullah (Remembrance of Allah (AJ))
This is the heart. I wash my heart bi zikrullah (remembrance). I am going to wash my heart with praising upon Prophet ﷺ, with majlis (association) of zikr (remembrance). Only the zikr (remembrance) and awrad (spiritual practice) has an energy that begins to purify the heart. It is not something easy. And if you are not capable of doing the zikr (remembrance) and you’re not capable of making the salawat (praising), don’t attribute it to yourself and say, “Yeah, you know, I couldn’t do it.” No, there is an even scarier thought that Allah (AJ) is not permitting you to mention His Name on your tongue or on your heart! That, you should be very scared of.
Allah (AJ) Gives Permission For His Holy Name to Be Mentioned
Allah (AJ) in Surat Nur, describes, “We allow Our Name to be mentioned in their homes.”
﴾فِي بُيُوتٍ أَذِنَ اللَّـهُ أَن تُرْفَعَ وَيُذْكَرَ فِيهَا اسْمُهُ يُسَبِّحُ لَهُ فِيهَا بِالْغُدُوِّ وَالْآصَالِ ﴿٣٦
24:36 – “Fee buyotin adhina Allahu an turfa’a wa yudhkara feeha ismuhu yusabbihu lahu feeha bilghuduwwi wal asal.” (Surat An-Nur)
“(Lit is such a Light) in houses, which Allah has permitted to be raised to honour; and that His name be mentioned therein: In them He is glorified in the mornings and in the evenings, (again and again).” (The Light, 24:36)
Allah (AJ) says, “We allow Our Name to be mentioned within their homes.” Your home is your heart. If Allah (AJ) does not give permission, there is no way you will mention His Name upon your tongue, or your heart. That is scary.
That is when you begin to cry, “Ya Rabbi, please inspire me to do my awrad (spiritual practice). Please inspire me to constantly make darood sharif and praising upon Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.” My house is my heart, it’s the only house that matters. Every other house may go in a tidal wave, may go in a tufan or tornado but what I am taking into the grave is this house. And Allah (AJ) says, “Then We have to allow Our Name to be mentioned within your heart.” It means then my whole vigilance is, “Ya Rabbi, please make me to have firmness in my zikr (remembrance). Make me to have firmness in the salawats (praising) upon Prophet ﷺ.”
Protect Your Heart More Than You Protect Your House
“Ya Rabbi, let me be vigilant upon my heart and what is trying to come to my heart and what is trying to attack my heart.” Your heart becomes more precious than your home.
You can see people and what they prioritize in life. If your home has twenty carats of diamonds and I drove by your house, I bet everything will have solid metal. Everything would be locked. All night long you will be thinking, “Someone is going to come and break through the window and steal everything. Where am I going to hide it (diamond)? I will dig it in the ground.” Dig, dig, dig, and then I will put all the doors and windows in steel.
Allah (AJ) says “This is for dunya. Imagine what I am putting and bestowing of reality into your heart.” Why are you so quick to put it everywhere so that it can be stolen? So means then pious people are vigilant of their heart. They don’t go anywhere where it is not necessary to go. They don’t open their heart where it is not necessary to open because they know that Allah (AJ) is depositing a treasure within the heart. And Shaytan (satan) knows it and wants to just pick at it, and pick at it and pick at it until you have shak, doubt in your belief. If doubt begins to enter into the belief, know that Shaytan (satan) is mining your heart. He is pulling it out. He has got all the treasures and it is a full on raid on your heart!
Be Careful Where You Go – Do They Take Your Light or Give Light to Your Heart?
So they teach us, “Be vigilant of the heart. If you want these treasures to be placed upon the heart you have to have istiqamah and firmness in your belief, firmness in the practices, firmness in the zikr (remembrance), firmness in the love of Prophet ﷺ.” Ya Rabbi, my path is to love Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ more than I love myself.
﴾وَأَن لَّوِ اسْتَقَامُوا عَلَى الطَّرِيقَةِ لَأَسْقَيْنَاهُم مَّاءً غَدَقًا ﴿١٦
72:16 – “Wa alla wis taqaamoo ‘alat tareeqati la asqaynaahum maa’an ghadaqaa” (Surat Al-Jinn)
“And [ Allah revealed] that: “If they had only remained firm on their tariqa (straight path), We would have bestowed on them Rain/water in abundance. ” (The Jinn, 72:16)
All I want are the shining suns that represent the love of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. I am not interested in sitting with anyone else because anyone else is going to take the jewels from my heart.
Some people go everywhere like it is a free bazaar. And you don’t know who is putting jewels into your heart or who is taking the jewels out of your heart because within two or three words of what they say, you find yourself having doubt and darkness is now coming. So you don’t just go anywhere. You don’t just pray anywhere.
You want to make sure that is a shining sun and those are the lovers of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. They are going to deposit the love of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ into my heart. If it is not, and they are not shining that light, they are going to send darkness into my heart. They are going to come against the Sunnah (way of Prophet ﷺ), they are going to come against the Hadith (traditions of Prophet ﷺ).
There is No Weak Hadith, Only A Weak Believer
We said before, in your heart and in your mind don’t ever say, “This is a weak hadith.” There is only a weak believer who is filled with shak and doubt. And all they want now is to attack the Sunnah of Prophet ﷺ, attack the greatness of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ by constantly putting doubt, constantly putting doubt and they say: they are only Ahl al-Qur’an. This is hizbus-shaytan.
Qur’an doesn’t open without the love of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. We are not the people who have any doubt. If you don’t understand that it came from Prophet ﷺ then you should be making tafakkur, contemplation, and connecting your heart with the heart of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ and he (alayhi ‘s-salaat o salaam) will confirm within your heart exactly what it is and its reality!
Heart is the Real Sun
So it means we took a path of how to open the heart and as soon as we open the heart we realize the organs and the importance of the organs. Allah (AJ) is saying, “If you don’t have a Sun your galaxy is already dead, how are you going to manage My galaxy?” So we go and say to the shaykh, “I wonder was this person an enlightened person? He is watching TV and levitating off the ground. Is he enlightened? Does he have spiritual power?” That is very easy for us if the person’s heart is lit, and lit with faith that will dress all the organs. From the hadith of Prophet ﷺ: if one piece (the heart) is good all of that person is good, if the heart is bad all of it is bad.
أَلا وَإِنَّ فِى الْجَسَدِ مُضْغَةً إِذَا صَلَحَتْ صَلَحَ الْجَسَدُ كُلُّهُ، وَإِذَا فَسَدَتْ فَسَدَ الْجَسَدُ كُلُّهُ، أَلا وَهِى الْقَلْب
“Ala wa inna fil Jasadi mudghatan idha salahat salahal jasadu kulluho, wa idha fasadat fasadal jasadu kulluho, ala wa heyal Qalb.”
“There is a piece of flesh in the body, if it becomes good (reformed) the whole body becomes good but if it gets spoiled the whole body gets spoiled and that is the heart.” Prophet Muhammad (saws)
This means if the heart is lit, their galaxy has a Sun. Whatever practices they are doing, their heart is becoming stronger and stronger and stronger and what is the most favoured time for Islam? It’s the full moon, the time of perfection, because the moon is capturing all the light of the sun.
So then they begin to teach, “If your heart is lit, and you lit the heart with awliyaullah (saints) and your heart is lit with zikr (remembrance), lit with the salawat (praising) for Prophet ﷺ, and lit with Islam (submission), and you are now entering the realities with iman (faith). That heart is burning like a sun and your face is like a moon.”
Life Depends on the Imitated Sun, Imagine the Power Allah (AJ) Gave to Awliya (Saints)?
People of tafakkur (contemplation) stop there and make tafakkur (contemplation). What power does the Sun have on Creation? If that is an imitated Sun and awliyaullah (saints) and pious people if their hearts become a real Sun, that Allah (AJ) gives them nurul anwaar wa siratul asraar (the light of every secret and the secret of every light). If that nur (light) really opens within their heart, what type of power does that light has? Don’t you take your vision from the Sun? Don’t you take your breath from the Sun? All the vegetation of what you are eating is from the shams (sun)?
What then are you getting from the awliya (saints)? If their souls are more powerful than the Sun? Sayyidina Yusuf (as) said, “They are all bowing down to me,” whichh means ‘my station is above their station’. What are you then taking from their souls if their heart is emanating and dressing?
What do you take from the moon? How it raises vegetation, how it brings the tides up and down, which means everything on this dunya (material world) is affected by that Moon. So it is not a something small. It is so huge that Shaytan’s (satan) only interest is to make sure nobody reaches that reality. If you should reach that reality, you are more powerful than a thousand men on this dunya (material world).
If your heart becomes a sun, it is a sun in which eyes can see. We talked about the Sun in the Heavens. How is it shining (continuously), then it has layli (dark), then when it enters the Earth, it is nahar (sunshine). The Sun is always shining, but we haven’t the eyes to see its light. Only when it enters dunya (material world), we can only see that line of it. That electromagnetic pulse of what it enters into dunya (material world) Allah (AJ) gave us the ability to see. So what light is Allah (AJ) sending upon these souls and the realities of these souls? They open their heart. Their heads become like a full moon and every organ of their body is governed in its reality.
Your Breath is the Power of Your Heart – Your Sun
Then they come into your life (and teach) that within yourself is the Tree of Life, which are your lungs. Nafs ar-Rahmah (Breath of Mercy) is going to be the power and Qudrah for your entire galaxy. Because you want to inherit. “Ya Rabbi, I want to inherit Your Heavens, I want to inherit Your Heavens.” So then what are you doing smoking? What are you doing smoking? You see some people saying, “O this is a big shaykh and he is (puffing) on a cigarette.” His sidratul muntaha is on fire. [Laughter]. What are you talking about? How is he a big shaykh? You think he is from awliyaullah, that Allah (AJ) gave him to inherit from the Heavens yet his Tree of Life is on fire? It’s impossible.
Everything within our body is of importance. You are breathing in this galaxy that Allah (AJ) gave to you. Every breath of nafs ar-Rahmah that comes in. Our way is based on the power of that breath. That nafs is the power of your sun. It comes into the lungs. It dresses from Allah’s (AJ) Zikr and Lights and Rahmah. From that, the blood takes it and goes into the heart.
If your breath is bad, your heart is destroyed – not the fragrance, but the quality of the breath. It means if the breath is not coming in pure and clean, that pure and clean breath is what gives energy to the heart, gives the power to the heart. Then the lungs you see them as a tree upside down, why? Because this is the Tree of Life! Every life, every reality of you is coming through that breath. If you don’t govern the breath and understand that breath is a Treasure from Allah (AJ) and awliyaullah (saints) tell us there are 24,000 Treasures in one day, 24,000 realities in one day. Every breath is with a shukr and thankfulness to Allah (AJ).
Shaytan (Satan) Inspires to Drink and Destroy Your Liver
It means then (also guard) your liver and kidneys. You understand that you have to govern your breath and no doubt Shaytan wants to come into my being. And how is he going to come into the liver of people? By inspiring them to drink that which is not halal. When they drink something questionable or outright forbidden, it is entering into the blood system. It is like shayateen (devils) that are now attacking the body.
Shaytan (Satan) Wants to Destroy the Defense of Your Galaxy
They want to destroy the defense of that galaxy. They know that if you become a powerful galaxy, you are going to wreak havoc on the shayateen (devils) and their plans for dunya (material world), but if you empower yourself it is a difficulty (for them). So they know that to destroy the liver, inspire him to drink that which is not acceptable allowing the shayateen (devils) inside the body and into the liver. The shayateen (devils) are coming within the blood and attacking the heart.
This means in every movement they are attacking the body, and they (awliya) begin to inspire and teach us, “Be careful of your breath. Govern your breath that with the Qudrah of Allah (AJ) dressing you, you don’t want anything forbidden within it.”
Shaytan (Satan) Brought e-Cigarette and Sheesha to Kill You Faster
Shaytan is so obsessed with destroying insan (humankind) that he makes him now to smoke from a cold smoke, because he couldn’t kill him enough with a warm smoke. You can only breathe so deep with fire. If you’ve been to a sauna and you take a deep breath, it starts to burn after that. So Shaytan asks, “How am I going to get to my dhuriya, progeny, deeper into that insan (human being)? I’ll make him smoke something cold.” So the e-cigarette is a cold vapour to take the shayateen (devils) deeper into the body. The Sheesha has 100 cigarettes in every puff. To completely kill and destroy the lungs so that you destroy the heart and the blood of that insan (human being).
First Make Hajj (Pilgrimage) to Your Heart
Sayyidina Yusuf (as) is coming and teaching, Allah (AJ) wants that: to purify ourselves, purify your being. Make your first hajj (pilgrimage) within your heart. Govern all your organs so that they are perfected and purified and that Shaytan (satan) is repelled from your being. Only at that time, Allah (AJ) grants sincerity and the heart is lit and the moon is shining. It means their galaxy is lit with energy. Any deficiency within their organs, their sun will clean it, the sun within their heart. The energy that Allah (AJ) is depositing will begin to clean all the organs and everything of their being. At that time, Allah (AJ) begins to grant the inheritance of the Heavens. Then the hajj (pilgrimage) of iman (faith) is then towards the reality of Prophet ﷺ.
