It was revealed to the Prophet ﷺ on his Night Journey that the special mount, the Burāq, was not only for the beloved of the Lord of Heavens, but also for his ﷺ nation. In the present time the reality of Islām is not well known, even by Muslims. Only its name and traces remain. In order to journey from earthly to heavenly positions Muslims must prepare themselves. They must seek those who can guide them. The Muslim rulers and scholars cannot. Those who carry the secret of the journey, can. These are not fairy tales.

Sohbat of May 29, 2010
La ilaha ill’Allah La ilaha ill’Allah La ilaha ill’Allah Muhammadun Rasulullah alayhi salatullah wa s-salamu.
Give much more glory and praising O our Lord, to Your most beloved and praised and glorified one through Your Divine Presence, only he is, Sayyidina Muhammad, sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam. Madad Ya Rijal Allah, O praised one, O holy ones, we’re asking your holy support for this planet. What we are in need of we are asking and we are giving our salutes for you also and asking it for this, our humble association to be on strong pillars so that no one can be able to shake it. Al haqqu y`alu! Always Haqq going up, Haqq never going to be down. Batil always going to be down, forever.
Assalamu alaykum responsible ones for ourselves, for mankind, particularly mankind, khulasatun of creation. Khulasa, hanh, summary. All creation, created for whom? For Allah, Jalla Jallauhu, Subhanahu wa Ta’ala. But He created everything for the honour of mankind as they have been granted to be deputies. And the main purpose, what the ulamas must know, it is a show. What kind of show? The Lord of Heavens asking to make a show for His most glorified one, Sayyidina Muhammad sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam. Everything, everything was created for the showing/display of the Seal of Prophets, the main purpose of creation, Sayyidina Muhammad sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam.
We are saying Assalamu alaykum our attenders. Look, listen and try to understand to what is necessary for today and, on which base are going to be built hawadith (events), that are going to come tomorrow. Today is a base for coming events, not enough this word but, shu’oon, appearances that will be are going to make clear. Now, today is pregnant with tomorrow. All events that will come tomorrow prepared from today and these events, appearances, everything that is appearing today has a pesonality, sha’an. This is going to begin from sun-rising up to sunset.
Two important missions are being carried every day. One, what has been brought from yesterday for today is going to appear and today is getting pregnant when it is getting to sunset and beginning to appear every show that is prepared for tomorrow. Allah Allah, Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. O People, try to understand something, that everyday is going on a show, for someone. Allah Almighty Subhanhu wa Ta’ala He is not in need for a show. No. No one can do a show for Allah. Astaghfirullah. He is asking to make a show on behalf of His deputy ala ‘l atlaq, absolute deputy, because it is for only one, the Seal of Prophets, yes. Absolute deputy.
And everything coming in appearance for the honour of His absolute deputy, who is Sayyidina Muhammad sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah Allah. O Ulama, what we are in now, is for addressing first to you, as you are claiming that ‘we are understanding and we are learned’, therefore we are saying. In Holy Quran saying Allah Subhanahu wa Ta`ala:
kulla yawmin huwa fi sha’anin (55:29)
What does it mean, you are understanding, those who are claiming ‘we are Salafi ulama and Azhar Sharif ulama and doctors of shariah, learned people, academic people.’ You are understanding. You are understanding something but you are not understanding until you are reaching to be in connection with heavenly ones. As long as you are on Earth, you can’t reach, to understand or to know anything. What you are learning a Christian may say also, priest may look and see. What is going to be different between that one and yours?
We are asking some from those that have a connection to heavenly ones. And you are not asking such a person, who are really the ones that are reaching heavenly positions. Islam is not a material religion. Islam is not coming only for arranging your lives on this planet, but Islam is coming with its highest purpose, to make people to be in connection with heavens. But you are happy to be on Earth therefore you are not asking for someone who may take you by your hand up to heaven.
What you are understanding of the Seal of Prophets on the Night Journey, you know that he is not going by himself from Earth to the Heavens, coming Archangel Gabriel and Archangel Israfil alayhimu s-salam. You must try to understand but you can’t understand until you are becoming – hatta tatalammadhu tilmidh, to be students of such people so that if you ask you can find it. It is not enough to look at a picture of Ka`aba muazzamah, House of Lord, it is not enough, You must reach to that one. And you can’t reach without moving. If you are saying ‘it is enough what we are seeing in a picture it is enough for us,’ you are remaining at the level of the picture and a picture never gives you what real Ka`aba is going to give you.
If it was enough for people to look at a picture of the House of Lord, no need to go to Makkah mukarramah, holy place. No, no need. Here we are looking, being visitors of the House of Lord. We are going with people, looking, people going to get up in Arafat, Mina, Muzdalifah and making sa`i. If we are looking through many instruments or in pictures that show the pilgrims moving, no one can say just by looking we are going to be in Hajj because these are moving pictures. Those who are there they are really taking the honours that are dressed, the Day of Arafat.
Therefore ulama must ask those who are representing the Seal of Prophets to see, just as the As’hab, Companions of the Seal of Prophets peace be upon him, saw. As’hab were following him and becoming companions of the Seal of Prophets. That was enough, but we are not going to become Sahaba by looking at photographs or pictures. We are not, no. They were with Prophet and as much as they were with him, they were taking more. Those who were giving some time were taking something, those who were giving their whole being to be with the Seal of Prophets were taking all.
Therefore now, Islam is not known well, even among Muslims. The Muslim World is not taking care to reach the reality in Islam. Because no one can reach the reality of Islam if they are not reaching someone who has reached the reality of Islam. It is not enough to write ‘Dr.’, no. You are on Earth yet, you are thinking that now we are sitting in a plane, no. Never moving, that. They are asking moving ones.
And the Seal of Prophets, peace be upon him, was asking when Archangel Gabriel and Israfil alayhimu s-salam bringing Buraq Sharif, that special ride that the Lord of Heavens sending to his most beloved one, to take him, to His Divine Presence. He was asking ‘O Gabriel, this Buraq, this special ride is only for me, or for my ummah, for my Nation?’ Gabriel saying, according to Allah Almighty’s declaration. This, the Seal of Prophets was knowing but asking for his nation to know also, therefore asking, ‘it is only for me or for my ummah, for my Nation also?’
‘O Seal of Prophets, O most beloved, most glorified one in our Lord’s Divine Presence, it is for everyone’. He was seeing on the Night Journey, a plain filled with Buraq-i sharif and one was crying as it had been given good tidings that the Seal of Prophets was going to ride on it. Others, countless Buraq-i sharif for whom? ‘Those also are for your nation. For your nation, if they are preparing themselves to ride on them there should come to everyone one Buraq, to take them from earthly positions of material world, up to heavenly being’.
People however, are never taking an interest in such things, they are saying, ‘eehh, khurafat, khurafat – beast’s fairy tales’. They are not interested. They are interested in what is in material world now. Very wrong. Therefore, the representative of the Seal of Prophets, as he has responsibility for the whole ummah on Earth, making a sign sometimes that ‘look, that Buraq’s heavenly creation is waiting, if anyone is ready or prepared to ride on it, they are waiting’.
But no one is interested, only maybe a handful of people that are interested in such things and they have been granted and no one knows who they are. And if you are meeting one of them you are saying this, ‘this is khurafat, fairy tales. Leave it, he is not learned in university, never learning through European universities about Islam, leave him’. And that one is carrying the secret of that journey, to take people from Earth up to heavenly positions.
Therefore now is the time about which the Seal of Prophets, peace be upon him, was saying, you know, all Salafi ulama and other ulama, Azhar Sharif, that the Seal of Prophets was saying, Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim, sa’ayati zamanun la yabqa min al islamu illa ismuh wa la yabqa min ad-deen illa rasmuh (a time will come when, from Islam will remain only its name and from religion only its trace). Is it okay or not, what you are saying? It is not from my imagination, no. No, it is well known and we are living now and we are saying it is enough to be through this time and its deeds.
We are enough, we are saying that no one is asking to reach real Islam and real religion. They are happy to be known as doctors or Salafi ulamas or others. And they are coming and bombarding some people who are asking to seek after the Seal of Prophets, how he was going up, trying to find that way. May Allah forgive us, O People, O People, try to find the way to your ride to heavens so that you can ride on it and go up. If no one understands what we are saying, no one can get contentment.
What you are calling them for? You are knowing that even your chiefs, presidents or others are never asking what Islam is saying because they are never reaching contentment in themselves from Islam. Therefore they are not asking. Saying, ‘democracy’, ‘pocrasy’, that dirty, dirty nizam, dirty system, running after it, not asking the pure, purity of Islam. They are not asking, they say we are collecting parliament, we are making elections. What is that election! Allah ordering you to make election? Jahannami people! And making fasad, corruption on corruption. What is that?
Therefore Islam falling down for those people who are not understanding Islam and coming responsibility to those ulama that are not teaching or are not giving real understanding to the heads of territories, states. May Allah forgive us. Tawba Ya Rabbi, tawba Ya Rabbi, tawba astaghfirullah. Fatiha.
