Today is “The First of Rabī‘u l-Awwal”. After the Fajr prayer Mawlānā congratulates us all and speaks about the value of this blessed month and about the secrets of Ṣalawāt Sharīfah, the main wird of this month. Mawlānā also shows us how far we have strayed from the Sunnah Saniyyah of the Prophet ﷺ.
Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim
Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshbandi ق
Sohbat of the 13th of January, 2013
As-Salamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahu wa Barakatuhu. May the month of Rabiu l-Awwal be mubarak/blessed- the month of Milad an-Nabi, alayhi salatu was-salam. May its barakah be upon us, may the heaviness on us be lifted. May the enemies of the nation of Muhammad (ﷺ) be expelled. May the Master, the Sultan who will serve the nation, come. What we ask is this.
As-Salamu Alaikum, o nations of the Beloved (ﷺ). O Lord, O Lord… Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. “May we remember the Name of Allah first. It is obligatory for the servant in his every doing. Whosoever remembers the Name of Allah first, Allah makes his every doing easy for him”. The Holy Name of Allah Almighty, Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. May we receive strength from it, may we receive power from it. Allah Almighty created the Lawh al-Mahfuz/ the Preserved Tablet. He created the Qalam al-‘ala/The Holy Pen also. When Allah Almighty looked at it with His Glory & Majesty the nib of the Pen opened/cracked, it is said. The ink came, which was not from the ink that we know. The Holy Pen said “O my Lord, what should I write?” Allah Almighty ordered “Write Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim”. Until it wrote the Basmala al-Sharif, some narrations say, 700 years passed. Allah Almighty said: “O Pen, The Holy Pen, whosoever recites, says my Holy Name Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim I will order the thawwab/reward of 700 years worship to be written for him”.
“Who forgets Bismillah becomes forgotten. May Allah make us from the ones who remember Bismillah al-Sharif.”
— Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al-Haqqani ق
How great is it, Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Blow it on yourself- the Basmala al-Sharif. May its barakah/blessings be upon us. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim was sent down to our Prophet (ﷺ), masha Allah. O Lord, for the honour of Basmala al-Sharif, for the glory & barakah of Your Beloved, may You grant us also to say Basmala al-Sharif for our every affair. With it every calamity is expelled, every goodness opens. For every matter, “May we remember the Name of Allah first. It is obligatory for the servant in his every doing”. It says “Remember the Name of Allah”. And reciting it is wajib/obligatory. It is an order. Don’t be without Basmala. Walk with Bismillah, do your every business with Bismillah, live with Bismillah & submit your life with Bismillah. Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Wa Lillah al Hamd. Whosoever remembers the Name of Allah first, his every doing is made easier for him. Whosoever says in the beginning, before he does his work the Name of Allah, Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim whatever it is, it becomes easy. Even if it is not one person’s work but 1000 peoples’ work for the honour of that Basmala, Allah Almighty makes that work come to be easy & to be completed. If it is without Basmala, it has no khair. It is rubbish. Who forgets Bismillah becomes forgotten. May Allah make us from the ones who remember Bismillah al-Sharif. “May we remember Allah’s Name first. It is obligatory for the servant in his every doing”. How beautiful. How beautiful.
“May our hearts be pure & our faces enlightened. May we be happy & joyful. Focus on Salawat al-Sharif, the troubles will be lifted from us.”
— Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al-Haqqani ق
So we entered the holy month of that Glorious Prophet- Rabiu l-Awwal. It is the day & night that the inhabitants of earth & Heavens celebrate. We should show respect for it, should recite a good many of Salatu Salam. May we not be lazy, say 1000 Salawat! Or say 500, or 300x, or 100x say “Allahumma Salli ala Muhammadin wa ala ‘aly Muhammadin wa Sallim”. Recite this. Allah Almighty grants 10 thawabs in return for 1 Salawat. The Master of Creation was born in this holy month- Rabiu l-Awwal. May it be mubarak for all of you. O Lord, may You make us reach many more years- may You make us gather under the flag of Your Beloved in dunya as well as in akhirah O Lord. May our hearts be pure & our faces enlightened. May we be happy & joyful. Focus on Salawat al-Sharif, the troubles will be lifted from us. Recite 1000x, recite 10,000 if you like. No matter how much you recite on the Glorious Prophet, it is still little. It is little. He is the Glorious Prophet. He is the Great Prophet on whom Allah Almighty sends Salatu Salam. Allah Almighty & the angels, the Great Angels, “‘Inna Allaha Wa Mala’ikatahu Yusalluna `Ala An-Nabiyi” (33:56). Allah (jj) & His angels send Salatu Salam on that Glorious Prophet. “Ya ‘Ayyuha Al-Ladhina ‘Amanu Sallu `Alayhi Wa Sallimu Taslimaan”. O you who believe! Send your Salat on him. Even if you have nothing else, say it & have no fear.
Unfortunately the ignorant ones of this time are enemies to Salawat al-Sharif. Before our mosques would be adorned with Salawat al-Sharif. In the time of Adhan al-Muhammadi, our Adhans would be joyful with Salawats. The blessings of the Salawat al-Sharif would descend upon the earth & the earth would shine, it would have barakah. O people, O Muslims! Recite Salawat in great numbers. No tornadoes will come on you, no severe cold weather will come on you. No severe snows or floods will come on you. No, they don’t reach you. It protects you, Salawat al-Sharifa protects you. O Lord, may You make us from those servants of Yours who recite plenty of Salawat al-Sharif on the Prophet You love. We are weak ones. We are weak. We are weak.. Say it all the time, recite Salawat continuously. If our people recite Salawat al-Sharif, no will tornadoes come on them. No snow, no cold weather will come on them. No roads we be closed, no floods come, no avalanches come, no. Recite Salawat.
Recite salawat from the minarets. They should build minarets in all our villages. They built dirty places. Build minarets everywhere! Let Adhan al-Muhammadi be recited. No avalanches, no snow will close roads. People won’t get lost, won’t be bewildered. O nation of Muhammad (ﷺ)! Recite Salawat on our Prophet (ﷺ), every trouble will be gone from you. Every closed door of yours will open, every difficult work will become easy- for the honour of that Glorious Prophet.
O Lord, may You forgive us. May You send us a Master. May You send us a Sultan, O Lord. There is no taste in the world without the Sultan. The world has fallen into fisq & fujur (sins & immorality), Sultans have disappeared. The feet became the head & the head became the feet. It is the sign of Qiyamah- “The heads will become the feet & the feet will become the head”. What the people of this time are doing is this. When they say “democracy”, the feet want to be in power. When they say Sultanate, the heads are in power. What is justice? To put everything in its place. This is what justice is. Now, if you invite guests to a table and serve the food & soup in a chamber pot would they accept it? Even if you say “It is brand new. No one did in it yet” would they accept it? No. Now it is this that they call democracy; they do it inside a chamber pot & put in front of the people saying “Eat & drink”. This is what it is all about. It is filth. Sit at the table of the Sultan, that he presents you your blessing in golden pots, that he appreciates you & appreciates your value.
“No, we will elect people from the streets”. You messed it up! What is left now? Pour it on your head- what you did in the chamber pot pour it over your head! Are you happy with what you did? They brought people into this, whole world’s people poured into the streets. They say “We are tired of this filth of yours, we are sick & tired of your tyranny & treachery. You put us in the place of animals & are making us work. You eat the good food & throw us the bones. May Allah drive you away from us”. A Sultan would show favor to his people. These ones show favor only to themselves. Insha Allah soon, with the barakah of this holy month everywhere will change into a different situation, will be in a different manner. And the Sultans of the nations of the Beloved will come & the flags of Islam will be raised. Everything that is not conformable with Islam is false. And all of it will be thrown into rubbish.
For example, as an illustration, these people make new year celebrations. What tables do they arrange for that night, how much they put in it. And so many creatures dressed as men come to that table, they eat & drink. Then they throw up- it comes from their bottom, from their upper part. They become filthy & unclean. They made the nations unclean with this democracy. They have no value left. Who appreciated the value of the people were the Sultans. May Allah send them to us again. We sinned, may our Sultans come. The people appreciate their humanity & the ones in power appreciate their rule. O Lord, You know. This is our prayer, this is our explanation. Who doesn’t like this fall into … & remain in that hole. Who likes this will be saved. Their dunya & akhirah will be happy.
Ya Rabbi, tawba Ya Rabbi. Tawba Astaghfirullah. Ashadu an la ilaha illa Allah wa ashadu anna Sayyidina Muhammadan abduhu wa Habibuhu wa Rasuluhu, (sas). May You not separate us from the nations of the Beloved. May You grant us health & wellness O Lord. You don’t crush anyone. You never crush O Lord but shaytan is crushing mankind & they are not aware of it. O our Lord, we seek refuge in You from the evil of shaytan. We are saying “Audhu Billahi min al shaytan al rajim”. “Fasta`idh Bi-Llahi Mina Ash-Shaytani Ar-Rajimi” (16:98). Seek refuge with Allah from the evil of shaitan, it says.
O people! Distinguish the good from the bad. If you don’t, they hitch you to the cart instead of animals. They sit in the cart & with a whip in their hands they make the people hitched to the cart & make them pull with whip. This is what democracy is – they rule by the whip. They don’t appreciate the value of the people. There is no one in power now who appreciates the value of the people. This filthy thing that they call democracy made the people fall into the position of animals. The Imperial, the Sultanate- Ask for this. If you don’t ask for this, they won’t release you from being animals. Riding on your back, they stick to you & suck your blood.
May Allah repel them on this holy day O Lord, for the honour of Your Beloved’s birthday. O our Lord may You send us help. May You send us a Sultan. The people are crushed in the hands of the oppressors. May You send the Sultans O Lord. May the Haziratu Sahibul Zaman Mahdi (as) come. May the good tidings of Your beloved come to be. May we walk with him. May we raise the flags of Islam, O our Lord. You are the Qadir & Muqtadir. You are Subhan, Sultan.
Allah Almighty said for the Sultan, “He is My shadow on earth”- “Sultan dhillullahi fi l-‘ard”. O scholars of Egypt, why do you not say this? Why do you not say- why do you not explain the attribute of the Sultan? You elect people from the markets, bazaars. Tawba Ya Rabbi, tawba ya Rabbi. Send our Sultans, O Lord. Send our Sultans who appreciate the value of people O Lord, for the honor of Your Beloved. May we open for the honour of this holy month. May we grow stronger, may we become more honourable, may we defeat shaytan. May we live in Your Way & may we leave dunya in Your Way O Lord. May we reach You. May You not separate us from being under Your Beloved’s flag. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa Lillah al Hamd. Allahumma Salli wa Sallim wa Barik ala Sayyid al Awwalin wal Akhirin- Habibullah, Shafiullah, Rasulullah. For his honour O Lord, may You grant us strength. May these troubles on us be lifted. May You send us Sultans.
We should achieve our humanity, we are not animals. This democracy made people like animals and the people are fed up. They pour into the streets saying “We don’t want, we don’t want. It is enough that you put us in the place of animals. May Allah punish you. May you disappear” people curse them like this. “May you be destroyed. You made us animals. Sultans would appreciate us. We had gold in our pockets in the time of Sultans. You give us paper in your time, shame. Who are you?” People can’t say this. They want to say this but there are bridles put in their mouths. O Our Lord, our Subhan, our Sultan, send us a Sultan for the honour of Your Beloved.
May You make us reach those happy days also, O Lord, O Lord.. We ask cure for the ill ones, remedy for the troubled ones. May You make us from those who await Your favor that will grant Your servants strength & honour. O Glorious Prophet! Alfu alfu salat, alfu alfu salam Alaika wa ‘ala A’lika wa Ashabatika wa tabi’ina lahum bi ihsan ila yawmi d-Din. WalHamdulillahi Rabbul Alamin, al-Fatiha.
They say for me “Why does he cry?” How can I not cry? I am not crying for myself. May Allah punish those who put the nation of the Beloved into this situation. I am crying because they crushed the nation & pulled the Heavenly Wrath down upon themselves. I am crying. I am waiting for the Master, for the Sultan, my cry is for this. The meaning of living in dunya for me is to see the Master, to see the Sultans, to serve Islam; to be able to say “I am Muslim!” The most honoured title. “Huwa Samma’kumu Al-Muslimina” (22:78) Allah Almighty gave us the name “Muslims”, Prophet Abraham said, ‘ala nabiyyina `alayhimu s-Salam. Fatiha. Allah Allah.. Allah Allah, al Azamatu Li Allah, wal Azamatu li Allah, wal Qudrati li Allah. You are Subhan, O Lord. You are Sultan O Lord. May You send us from the Sultans who You call as “Your shadow”. Fatiha.
We want to see those days, O Lord, may You not deprive us. I am waiting for all these years, you are waiting too. The good days are with the Sultans. Sultan respects Allah, he respects His Prophet- glorifies Them & keeps Their orders. He shows favor for the nation, does not crush them. Who crushes them is shaytan. Astaghfirullah. Fatiha.
