‘Allamal Qur’an – Taught Prophet Muhammad alahi salam,

then Created Insaan (Human Being)

From the realities of Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani, as Taught by Shaykh Sayed Nurjan Mirahmadi

Audhu billahi minash Shaytanir rajeem
Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

Al hamdulillah in the holy month of Rajab and “subhana man huwa khaliq an noor”.

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

That from the secrets of the birth of light, it is in the reality of the 7th lunar month, and that light from the Divinely Presence, is the birth of the Muhammadan Reality. Alhamdulillah that opens into the holy month of Sha’ban in which that light of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) begins to illuminate all Creation.

In the way of marifa’h, from the teachers of reality, they remind us that everything is from the Muhammadan Light. That (understanding) has to be solid within the heart and it’s in the understanding that real Tawheed, laa shareeka ala, nothing is like unto Allah (Azza wa Jal). Nothing is in the vicinity of Allah (Azza wa Jal). That has a ‘nowhere-ness’ and ‘everywhere-ness’ at the same time. That the greatness, azmatullah, is that Allah (Azza wa Jal) can be seen nowhere, but is present everywhere. And the  manifestation and Qudrah (power) of Allah (Azza wa Jal) is the power of that Muhammadan Reality.

Know Where You Came from

And to go back into our origin, to go back into our realities and begin to sew together what the heart understands, and what it knows, to reach the understanding of the `Arifeen. Because if we don’t know where we came from then we don’t know where we are going back to. We come from the ocean of Muhammadun Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). And from that reality we came for a physical experience and the highest gift was to accept the Muhammadan Reality, Maqaam al-Mahmud, to say “Muhammadun Rasulullah,” (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). To say, “Laa ilaaha ilAllah,” is incomplete. What Allah (Azza wa Jal) wants is that you say, “Laa ilaaha ilAllah,” but to complete it and achieve Maqaam al-Mahmud with “Muhammadun Rasulullah,” (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam).

Then, contemplating within the heart what Mawlana Shaykh is teaching and what we have been talking about for a few days, about the angels and the bowing down, and Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s consistent example in the Holy Qur’an about tashreef, respect and good manners. Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem `Allamal qur’an. Khalaqal Insan.
[To read more on why Angels bowed down to Adam (as), please refer to article “Whom Allah Taught, Angels Bow Down to.“]

الرَّحْمَنُ عَلَّمَ الْقُرْآنَ خَلَقَ الْإِنسَانَ
“‘Allamal qur’an. Khalaqal Insan.” (Surat Rahman 55:1-3)

The Most Gracious, has Taught this Qur’an, Then He has created man (Holy Quran, The Beneficent)

From Surat ar Rahman, that all this dunya is under Siffat ar Rahman. It means from that light, and from that majesty, is this light, and is this existence coming out. Allah (Azza wa Jal) is pointing out in Holy Qur’an: `allamal qur’an, khalaqal insaan.

Nur Muhammad was the First thing Allah (aj) Created

Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) comes to clarify that when the Sahabah Nur Muhammad - Muhammad lightwere asking, “Yaa Sayyidi, yaa Rasulullah what was the first of Creation?” That is Hadith al-Jabbir.”

أَوَّلُ مَا خَلَقَ اللهُ نُوْرِ نَبِيِّكَ يَا جَابِرْ
“Awwalu ma khalaqAllahu nuri Nabyika, Ya Jabir.”

The first thing that Allah created was the Light of your prophet (referring to himself (saw)) O Jabir.” Prophet Muhammad (saws)

The light of the Prophet is the first of Creation, and Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) described that he is the light of all Heavens. Before any light; before anything coming into existence Nooru Muhammadi was there and, “I was a Rasul, I was a Nabi before the creation of Adam,”. Before Adam, (when he) was between clay and water that the Prophetic Station of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) was eternally in that existence.

كُنْتُ نَبِيًّا وَآدَمُ بَيْنَ الْمَاءِ وَالطِّينِ
“Kuntu Nabiyan wa Adama baynal Maa e wat Teen.”

“I was a Prophet and Adam was between clay and water.” Prophet Muhammad (saws)

It means then (we understand) with tafakkur because Allah (Azza wa Jal) describes the realities are only understood by the people of tafakkur.

Why? because they are not reading for the sake of trying to complete it like it is a race, but you read and one ayah is enough for you to spend a month meditating (on it). It wasn’t about trying to read fast and begin to sing like a parrot, and be a trained parrot. Sayyidina Abu Bakr as-Siddiq took seven years on Surat al Baqara (second chapter of holy quran), to go into the depths and realities of Holy Qur’an.

It means they begin to teach that when Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) is saying, “I and my Risalat is Qadeem, it is ancient in the world of light. That I am the Rasulullah in the Heavens.” In the world of light Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) is the Prophet of Allah (Azza wa Jal), the Khalifa (representative) of Allah (Azza wa Jal); the one who was created to speak for Allah (Azza wa Jal). Allah (Azza wa Jal) clarifies in Holy Qur’an that there is no one that can approach Allah (Azza wa Jal) except by a hijaab or a veil or through the Prophet or by inspiration within their heart.

There is no audience with Allah (Azza wa Jal). There is no way to go into the proximity  of Allah (Azza wa Jal). Then Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) describes that in this holy month of Isra and Mi’raj. There is no angel that went into “Qaaba Qawsayn aw Adna”;

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

While he [Muhammad (s)] was in the higher (part of the) horizon. (7) And was at a distance of two bow lengths or nearer. (9) (Quran, The Star 53:7-9)  

Even the Archangel Sayyidina Jibreel (Gabriel) clarified for us that “We have a had (limit), we have a distance. We have a limit beyond that limit it is impossible for us.”

Allah Is Not Approachable : Holy Quran 42:51
وما كان لبشر أن يكلمه الله إلا وحيا أو من وراء حجاب أو يرسل رسولا فيوحي بإذنه ما يشاء إنه علي حكيم

W ama kana libasharin an yukallimahu Allahu illa wahyan aw min wara-ihijabin aw yursila rasoolan fayoohiya bi-ithnihima yashao innahu Aaliyyun hakeem

And it was not (vouchsafed) to any mortal that Allah should speak to him Except By  (it be) by revelation or from behind a veil, or (that) He sendeth a messenger to reveal what He will by His leave. Lo! He is Exalted, Wise.

You cannot go closer to the Sun, How could you approach Allah (Izat wal Jallai) ?

Sun of Arefeen - Rays -Take it all in - by-dasgebetHow do we know that understanding? Like the Sun, everybody can sit on the beach and take the sunlight, everybody takes the sunlight, everybody takes the sunlight, and the deep reality of the Sun. What nourishment comes from that light, what blessings come from that light, what existence you have in your physical reality from the light of the Sun? But yet you cannot approach that Sun. There is nothing you can create to go into that proximity of the Sun.

Allah (Azza wa Jal) says: if you can’t come into the Sun, do you think the angels can come into My Presence? They become non-existent, they become qashiya, they become dust.

Only Prophet Muhammad (s) could carry Holy Speech of Allah (Izat wal Jallai)

Allah (Azza wa Jal) describes that Presence: that just My Speech is Qul, it is “Qaaf, wal qur’an alMadina - Quran from Heart of Muhammad (s) majeed” through Lisaan al Haqq of Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam).

ق ۚ وَالْقُرْ‌آنِ الْمَجِيدِ ١
50:1Qaaf, wal Quranil Majeed. ” (Surat Qaf)
“Qaaf. By the honored Qur’an.  (Holy Quran 50:1)

That Speech is a Power, because before the Qur’an is being seen, it is a source of Hamd. It is a Divinely Hamd (praise) from Allah (Azza wa Jal), only heard by Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam)! There is no angel that hears that; only Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) can take the frequency and the Power and `Izzatullah from ati ullah wa ati ar-rasula wa ulul amri minkum (Holy Qur’an 4:59).

أَطِيعُواللَّه وَأَطِيعُوٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ…
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)

Means nothing can take that power. When you establish that in your understanding of marifa’h, that nothing can take the frequency, the Azeemat, the Hamd, the Praise, and the Power of Allah (Azza wa Jal) except Muhammadun Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam)! And Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) makes it Qul na yaa naru koonee bardan wa salaaman” (Holy Qur’an 21:69),

21:69 – “Qul ya Naaru, kuni Bardan wa Salaman ‘ala Ibrahim.” (Surat al Anbiya)                
“We said, “O fire, be cool and Peaceful upon Abraham.” (Holy Quran, The Prophets 21:69)

That Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) takes that fire, that `Izzah, that Majestic Power of Allah (Azza wa Jal), and Allah (Azza wa Jal) describes: wa ma arsalnaka illa rahmatan lil `aalameen (Holy Qur’an 21:107)

وَمَا أَرْ‌سَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا رَ‌حْمَةً لِّلْعَالَمِينَ ١٠٧
21:107 – “Wa maa arsalnaka illa Rahmatan lil’alameen.” (Surat Al Anbiva)

“And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds.” (The Prophets 21:107)

That is what that meaning is, that: My Qudrah would devastate all of Creation, nothing in Creation can contain My Power but I brought for you a Mercy! The arwah and light of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) is created as a Mercy from Allah (Azza wa Jal); for Allah (Azza wa Jal) to be known through that Mercy.

It means (that Mercy) makes the frequency and the power of Allah (Azza wa Jal), to become cool and peaceful like the transformer at the power station. The transformer is a step down, it takes that high frequency and brings it to a frequency which you can take.

Allah (aj) Taught the Eternal Rasul Allah (Messenger of Allah)

What Prophet (sallalahu alayhi wa sallam) heard from `allamal qur’an? Nobody has anHeart - Lights going thru it understanding of what Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) was hearing from Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s `Izzah. What the Sahabi (companions of Prophet Muhammad (s)) heard from Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), what `izzah was dressed by them when Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) was reciting Holy Qur’an to his Companions? What frequency was Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) dressing them? What frequency were the Sahaabah dressing the tabi’yeen when they heard the Holy Qur’an? Those are energies. They weren’t just reciting words, they were reciting frequencies and energies and qudrahs from Allah (Azza wa Jal)!

When Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) was describing this Hadith that: you have to know that I have always been Rasulullah (saws) (messenger of Allah).

كُنْتُ نَبِيًّا وَآدَمُ بَيْنَ الْمَاءِ وَالطِّينِ
“Kuntu Nabiyan wa Adama baynal Maa e wat Teen.”

“I was a Prophet and Adam was between clay and water.” Prophet Muhammad (saws)

As long as there is Creation, it is from my light; angels are from the light of Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), Heavens are from the light of Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). Arsh ar-Rahmaan is from the light of Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam); everything is from the light of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam).

قَالَ : يَا جَابِرُ ، إِنَّ اللَّهَ خَلَقَ قَبْلَ الأَشْيَاءِ نُورُ نَبِيِّكَ مِنْ نُورِهِ ، فَجَعَلَ ذَلِكَ النُّورِ يَدُورُ بِالْقُدْرَةِ حَيْثُ شَاءَ اللهُ ، وَلَمْ يَكُنْ فِي ذَلِكَ الْوَقْتِ لَوْحٌ وَلا قَلَمٌ ، وَلا جَنَّةٌ وَلا نَارٌ ، وَلا مُلْكٌ ، وِلا سَمَاءٌ وَلا أَرْضٌ ، وَلا شَمْسٌ وَلا قَمَرٌ، وَلا إِنْسٌ  وَلا جِنٌّ.
فلما أراد الله تعالى أن يخلق الخلق قسم ذلك النور أربعة أجزاء: فخلق من الجزء الأوّل القلم، ومن الثاني اللوح، ومن الثالث العرش،…[ومن  الاربعة كل شئ ءٍ]

Ya Jabir, in Allah khalaqa qablal Ashiya e Nooro Nabiyika min Noorehi. Faj’ala dhalikan Noore yadoro bil Qudrati haithu sha Allahlu, wa lam yakun fi dhalikal waqti lawhun wa la qalamun, wa la jannatun wa la Narun,  wa la Mulkun, wa la samaun wa la ardun, wa la shamsun wa la qamarun, wa la insun wa la jinnun.
Falama arada Allahu ta’ala an yakhluqal Khalqi qasama dhalikan nooru arba’a ajza a: fakhalaqa minal juzi il awwalu al Qalamau, wa minath thaniu al Lawhu, wa minath thalithu al ‘Arshu,
[minal Arba’ah kuli shayin]

He (Prophet Muhammad (saws) said: “O Jabir, the first thing Allah created was the light of your Prophet from His (Allah’s) light, and that light remained (lit. “turned”) in the midst of His Power for as long as He wished, and at that time, there was no Tablet and no Pen, and no  Paradise and no Fire, and no angel, and no heaven or an earth, and no Sun and no Moon, and No Human being and no jinn. And when Allah wished to create creation, he divided that Light into four parts and from the first made the Pen, from the second the Tablet, from the third the Throne,
[and from the fourth everything else]

Then you contemplate: `allamal qur’an, khalaqal insaan. So whom Allah (Azza wa Jal) taught, `allama? And then insaan? So He is clarifying the Hadith, that Allah (Azza wa Jal) said, “Yes, ‘I taught the Holy Qur’an, means all My speech is always to Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam)’s ruhaniyat. And then this insaan was created, known to you as Sayyidina Adam (alayhi ‘s-salaam),’ then the physicality of Sayyidina Adam (alayhi ‘s-salaam) was created.”

Allah used the Word `Allama (taught)

53:2-5 “Ma dalla Sahibukum wa ma ghawa (2) Wa ma yantiqu ‘anil hawa (3) In huwa illa wahyun yoha (4) ‘Allamahu shadeedul quwa. (5) (Surat an Najm)

“Your owner/companion [Muhammad] has not strayed, nor has he erred/misled. (2) Nor does he speak from [his own] desire. (3)  It is not but a revelation sent/revealed to him. (4) He was taught by one Mighty in Power. (5) (Holy Quran, The Star)

Who has been eternally taught by Allah (Azza wa Jal)? `Allama, why? because the ‘Ayn is Allah’s Ancient Knowledge and is dressing that Laam. Even the huroof (letters) comes as a daleel (proof) to the haqayiq (realities). The haqayiq is to understand that nothing can take Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s `Izza. Allah (Azza wa Jal) gives for us to understand in the way of marifa`ah: if I put My Speech on that mountain, it will be dust.


لَوْ أَنزَلْنَا هَٰذَا الْقُرْآنَ عَلَىٰ جَبَلٍ لَّرَأَيْتَهُ خَاشِعًا مُّتَصَدِّعًا مِّنْ خَشْيَةِ اللَّهِ وَتِلْكَ الْأَمْثَالُ نَضْرِبُهَا لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ

59:21Law anzalna hadha al Qurana ‘ala jabalin laraaytahu, khashi’an mutasaddi’an min khashyatillahi….” (Surat Al Hashr)
Had We sent down this Qur’an on a mountain, verily, thou
wouldst have seen it obliterated to dust (from its power)… (Quran, The Exile 59:21

Means it’s made of a Hamd; it is made of atoms and molecules, those molecules are not capable of holding Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s Energy, it would be dust. But Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam)’s reality was created for this purpose. Lisaan al Haqq (tongue of truth) that Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) describes, “I have been created to speak for Allah (Azza wa Jal).” Not only the physical, this is the khatim (ending).

The only way of marifa`ah is that you come from Heavens to the Earth. So you are making a trench from your heavenly station to the Earth, then from the Earth you are going to dig back your trench to the Heavens and you complete the cycle. Means the light of the Heavens is coming down onto the Earth and then from Earth you dig your way back up to the Heavens. As you are digging it, everything is being illuminated by that light! It is like you are letting the floodgates of realities to dress. So means nothing knows its reality until Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam)’s physicality arrived unto Earth. All the prophets were waiting to reach their marifa`ah.

As soon as Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) steps on the Earth and Allah (Azza wa Jal) opens the permission to return towards your reality, all of Creation, like a comet, is behind Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) waiting to reach their marifa`ah. If you go to a fancy party you can’t enter into the hall until the guest of honor arrives, you can’t be sitting there and eating everything. Allah (Azza wa Jal) is describing: he is the guest of honor, I don’t want to see any of you until My Habib (beloved) comes. I don’t care if you are a Prophet or a Messenger or an angel, you are all from His light (alayhi’s salaat o salaam). It means sit there and wait until the Ascension of Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). At that time they understood their reality.

Un coding `Allama عَلَّمَ (taught) – ‘Ayn ع, Laam ل , Meem  Ar Rahman 55:1-2 Alam al Quran, Khalaq al Insan - Quran 55.1-2م

عَلَّمَ الْقُرْ‌آنَ ﴿٢﴾ خَلَقَ الْإِنسَانَ ٣

55:2-3 – ‘Allamal Qur’an. Khalaqal Insaan. (Surat Ar Rahman)

 “It is He Who has taught the Qur’an. He has created Mankind .” (The Beneficent 55: 2-3)

Allamal qur’an, khalaqal insaan means then Allah (Azza wa Jal) is always eternally teaching Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). The huroof comes and teaches: the ‘Ayn is My Ancient Knowledge. The source of every reality is based on knowledge; every Creation is manifesting from a knowledge, it only flows through a lisaan, that Laam of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), Lisaan al-Haqq and then it goes to the Meem to clarify that all knowledge, all the `alims and `aleems, `ulama, everything have to be in a Muhammadan Reality but its source is Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). Means all knowledge is coming from Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), from Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s ancient `Ayn; Siffat al-`Aleem is dressing the Meem.

Fiq Helps you understand Right and Wrong

We go back to `allamal qur’an khalaqal insaan, (that is) azeemat an Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). Now who was teaching the angels? Shaytan, Azazeel. He was teaching. They want us to understand that his knowledge was from the Earth trying to rise to the Heavens. So when you read and you study, you study your Fiqh (jurisprudence) to understand your ‘do’s and don’t’, your left and right, your forward and backward. But never think that the knowledge that you are reading from the Earth is going to lift you to the Heavens. It is different from `allama.

Whom Taught Himself has Bad characteristics

Shaytan was reading and knowing and as a result he began to teach the angels. Allah (Azza waPriest doing a sermon Jal) wanted to show a lesson in the classroom, so He gathered all of them, “Come now sit here with the teacher that has been teaching all of you.” When you have a teacher that learns from dunya, trying to reach towards Akhirah, usually they have bad characteristics. They have ghadab, anger, they talk bad, they are conceiving conniving; they do conspiracies, they plot and plan things, because it’s all mixed with bad characteristics because they didn’t reach tazkiyya yet. They did not reach perfection (of character).

They weren’t from Allah (Azza wa Jal)’s `allama where, “We taught Sayyidina Khidr (alayhi ‘s-salaam), We taught isma kullaha.”

18:65 – “Fawajada ‘abdan min ‘ibadinaa ataynahu rahmatan min ‘indina wa ‘allamnahu mil ladunna ‘ilma” (Surat al Kahf)

“And they found a servant from among Our servants to whom we had given mercy from us and had taught him from Us a [certain] knowledge.” (Quran, The Cave 18:65)

Allah’s We-ness is that, I taught and when I teach they have the best of character; they are humble, they are ghashiya, they are nothing, they have khushiyya when they are making their sajda and crying to Allah (Azza wa Jal).

Who taught himself has the characteristics of Shaytan, bad manners, backbiting, all sorts of anger, all sort of nastiness. And Allah (Azza wa Jal) wanted to show: that one who was teaching you (angels), look at your character now, because I am making My Khalifa. Means I am now making this Khalifa (representative) to appear.

They didn’t see Allah (Azza wa Jal); there is no one (who can) see Allah (Azza wa Jal), this is all a hijaab of light, who were they hearing? They were hearing Rasulullah (Messenger of Allah) [Proophet Muhammad (saws]. They don’t know where that light is; there is nobody who reached marifa`ah of Allah (Azza wa Jal); there is no way to see Allah (Azza wa Jal).

Then to put that story into its place…they have been called into the world of light with a hijaab of light, and the Eternally Rasulullah is teaching them, “Come now, the creation of Adam is going to come to life for you, and has been taught all knowledges.”

Angels learned bad Characteristic from Shaitan

What did the angels say from the bad characteristics that they learned from Shaytan? “Yaa Rabbi how are You going to make a Khalifa and he is going to create bloodshed?”

وَإِذْ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلْمَلاَئِكَةِ إِنِّي جَاعِلٌ فِي الأَرْضِ خَلِيفَةً قَالُواْ أَتَجْعَلُ فِيهَا مَن يُفْسِدُ فِيهَا وَيَسْفِكُ الدِّمَاء وَنَحْنُ نُسَبِّحُ بِحَمْدِكَ وَنُقَدِّسُ لَكَ قَالَ إِنِّي أَعْلَمُ مَا لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ

  ” Wa idh qala rabbuka lil Malayikati innee ja’ilun fil ardi khaleefatan, qaloo ataj’alu feeha man yufsidu feeha wa yasfikud dima a wa nahnu nusabbihu bihamdika wa nuqaddisu laka, Qala innee a’lamu ma la ta’lamon.” Surat al Baqarah 2:30)

2:30 – “And [mention, O Muhammad], when your Lord said to the angels, “Indeed, I will make upon the earth a successive authority/Representative.” They Angels  said, “Will You place upon it one who causes corruption/mischief therein and shed blood, while we praise and glorify You?” Allah said, “Indeed, I know that which you do not know. (Holy Quran)

That wasn’t their characteristic; the angelic reality is to be completely tasleem (submitting). So what happened?

It means they took on the characteristics of that one who taught himself and acquired his knowledge. And Allah wanted to point this out to them, “As Malayikah, you have a very high darajat of purity. When you are taking your knowledge from somebody who taught himself, you are not seeing the characteristics that he put within you, waswas (whispering); he put it within you to question My Creation that I am making a Khalifa and what that Khalifa is going to be dressed with.”

The Eternal Rasul Allah Taught Adam (as) – Isma Kulaha

Then, behind the veil, Allah (Azza wa Jal), because it is Allah (azza wa Jal) but speaking through who? Allah (Azza wa Jal) is speaking eternally through His RasulAllah, eternally through RasulAllah (Messenger of Allah – Muhammad (saws).

Allah Is Not Approachable : Holy Quran 42:51
وما كان لبشر أن يكلمه الله إلا وحيا أو من وراء حجاب أو يرسل رسولا فيوحي بإذنه ما يشاء إنه علي حكيم

Wa ma kana libasharin an yukallimahu Allahu illa wahyan aw min wara-i hijabin aw yursila rasoolan fayoohiya bi-ithnihima yashao innahu Aaliyyun hakeem

And it was not (vouchsafed) to any mortal that Allah should speak to him Except By  (it be) by revelation or from behind a veil, or (that) He sendeth a messenger to reveal what He will by His leave. Lo! He is Exalted, Wise.

From that hijaab He’s telling them, “That I know what you don’t know. This characteristic that you learned from that one is (brought) out, he is kicked from the school, send him down to Earth,” and he was expelled from that class.

Wanted to teach and then taught what? Isma kullaha.

وَعَلَّمَ آدَمَ الْأَسْمَاءَ كُلَّهَا…٣١
2:31 – Wa ‘allama Adamal Asma a kullaha,… (Surat al Baqara)
“And He taught Adam the names of all things …” (The Cow, 2:31)

2:33  – “Qala ya Adamu anbi hum bi asmayihim, falamma anbahum bi asmayihim qala alam aqul lakum inni a’lamu ghaybas samawati wal ardi wa a’lamu ma tubdoona wa ma kuntum taktumoon.” (Surah al Baqarah)

He said: “O Adam! Tell them their names.” When he had told them, He said: “Did I not tell you that I know the secrets of heaven and earth, and I know what you reveal and what you conceal?” (Holy Quran)Madina - Green dome Light, birds, dove salawat

As soon as Sayyidina Adam began to speak the knowledges, and convey the knowledges, what did the angels understand from those lights? When they saw these lights from the stations they didn’t understand, and they didn’t reach. When the lights were flowing through Sayyidina Adam (alayhi ‘s-salaam), those were the Muhammadan Realities that Allah (Azza wa Jal) says, wa ma arsalna illa rahmatan lil `aalameen,

وَمَا أَرْ‌سَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا رَ‌حْمَةً لِّلْعَالَمِينَ ١٠٧
21:107 – “Wa maa arsalnaka illa Rahmatan lil’alameen.” (Surat Al Anbiva)
“And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds.” (The Prophets 21:107)

“I am now revealing My Most Merciful Creation, I am now revealing the light of Nooru Muhammadi (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) into the arwah and into the being of Sayyidina Adam (alayhi ‘s-salaam).” That is why Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) described, “I am from Allah (Azza wa Jal) and creation is from me.

Means the `allama isma kullaha is Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) teaching Sayyidina Adam (alayhi ‘salaam), and giving the Muhammadan Light to Sayyidina Adam (alayhi ‘s-salaam).

As a result Allah (Azza wa Jal) is describing that: when that light came and the knowledges came, Allah (Azza wa Jal) said, “Do you know these?” and the angels said, “Subhaanaka, yaa Rabbi, Glory be to You, we only know what we have been taught and we know we haven’t been taught that, we are not even near that light” and they made sajda to the light–not sajda of worship but sajdatul ihtiraam (prostration of Respect)!

وَعَلَّمَ آدَمَ الْأَسْمَاءَ كُلَّهَا ثُمَّ عَرَ‌ضَهُمْ عَلَى الْمَلَائِكَةِ فَقَالَ أَنبِئُونِي بِأَسْمَاءِ هَـٰؤُلَاءِ إِن كُنتُمْ صَادِقِينَ ٣١ قَالُواْ سُبْحَانَكَ لاَ عِلْمَ لَنَا إِلاَّ مَا عَلَّمْتَنَا إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْعَلِيمُ الْحَكِيمُ

2:31-32 “Wa ‘allama Adamal Asma a kullaha, thumma ‘aradahum ‘alal Malaikati faqala anbioonee bi asma i haola e  in kuntum sadiqeen.(31) Qalo subhanaka la ‘ilma lana illa ma ‘allamtana, innaka antal ‘Aleemul Hakeem.(32)” (Surah al Baqarah)

“And He taught Adam the names – all of them. Then He showed them to the angels and said, “Inform Me of the names of these, if you are truthful. (31) They said, “Exalted are You; we have no knowledge except what You have taught us. Indeed, it is You who is the Knowing, the Wise.” (Holy Quran, 2:31-32)

Then when people are saying, “Should we  stand for Mawlid an-Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam)?” Eh, ahmaq, hit him on the head and say, “Are you crazy?” Allah (Azza wa Jal) is describing the angels are prostrating out of respect of the knowledge and the beatific lights that were flowing from Sayyidina Adam (alayhis salaam).

Means then this way of marifa`ah, the reality that is dressing, and the tashreef (honor) that is given by that knowledge is the whole way of approaching Allah (Azza wa Jal). That what love Allah (Azza wa Jal) has for Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), is unimaginable. What Allah (Azza wa Jal) bestowed upon that reality and that `uloom and knowledge, is unimaginable.

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 wal hikmata wa yu’Allimukum ma lam takono ta’Alamon.” (Surat al Baqara) 

“Just as We have sent within/among you a messenger from your own, reciting to you Our Signs, and purifying you, and teaching you the Scripture/Book and Wisdom and teaching you New Knowledge, that which you did not know.” (Quran,  The Cow 2:151)

It is only through the schools of tarbiya that control their bad characteristics, their `uloom comes from the Heavens to their heart. Those who try to build themselves from dunya towards the Heaven have a difficult pursuit, because all the bad characteristics will be mixed with that knowledge.

We pray that Allah (Azza wa Jal) dress us from these realities, bless us from these realities. And grant us from the Heavenly Knowledges that illuminates from the Heavens into the soul. And through the good characteristics of the physicality, which prepares for the arrival of that light. When the body and nafs is conditioned and trained in a way that Allah (Azza wa Jal) finds sincerity within that person, He cleans that body, cleans that being, so that light can come into that vehicle and vessel of reality. It is a holy light of Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). It is a blessed light of Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and those are the Muhammadan Realities.

We pray that Allah (Azza wa Jal) dresses us from this holy Rajab, dresses us from the holy Shaban and prepares for us the opening of the holy Ramadan in which Allah (Azza wa Jal) dresses and blesses those lights of Holy Qur’an and the akhlaaq (character) and the beauty of Sayyidina Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) inshaAllah.

Subhaana rabbika rabbil `amma yasifoon wa salaamun `alal mursaleen wal hamdulillahi rabbil `aalameen. Bi hurmatil Muhammad al-Mustafa wa bi sirri surat al-Fatiha.
