“A’uzu Billahi Minash Shaitanir Rajeem, Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem.
00:13 - Atiullah atiur Rasul wa Ulil amre minkum. ” And always a reminder for myself ana abdukal ‘ajeezu, dayeefu, miskinu, zhalim, wa jahl, and but for the grace of Allah (AJ) that we are still in existence and we took a path in which to be nothing.
00:32 - And the only thing that is correct is Allah (AJ) and Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ and Holy Qur’an.
00:44 - Everything else is filled with mistakes, and based on the intention Allah (AJ) will judge His creation.
00:57 - If the intention was good and mistakes were make and made -then alhamdulillah Allah (AJ) Ghafoor ur Raheem (The All Forgiving, The Most Merciful).
01:06 - There is no one that’s perfect and without mistakes, so always in our life that’s… is a given.
01:16 - That it’s not being written in stone and these are teachings that come from the heart and the intention is the love of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.
01:29 - If anyone find anything wrong in it then that’s for them but judgement for Allah (AJ) only and that judgement is based on intention.
01:40 - Last night we went into the… did the connection.
01:44 - Can you hear me? Yes Sayyidi We went into the 11 principles of Naqshbandiya and like anything else… bi madadikum ya Mawlana Shah Naqshband (Q) – ya Fardul Alam, ya Fardul ‘Arsh.
02:01 - That it’s not that you pick up the principle and begin start doing the practices.
02:11 - The principles are oceans of reality and requires the guidance that at each step the shaykhs must teach all the curriculum so that the student can enter into that principle.
02:30 - So, when they’re not teaching it there’s no way for students to achieve it, and this is for Naqshbandiya tul ‘Aliya (The Most Distinguished Naqshbandi Order).
02:42 - So we said and a reminder now ‘Hosh dar Dam’ – conscious breathing.
02:47 - So, you can’t just pick up that principle and say, ‘Okay I’m going to be consciously breathing. ’ A shaykh has to have taught you - to sit, be conscious of your breath, understand now the haqqaiq (realities) of the breath.
03:01 - What we talked about last night that – the breath and the secret of the force of life from the ‘Ha’ of Allah (AJ) or some people in other subcontinents say ‘Hey’ – it has a ‘Hu’ and that ‘Hu’ is the secret power of every existence, that’s what makes the breath the energy for creation, and awliyaullah (saints) want us to harness that.
03:31 - If that precious gift is being sent out – we must be conscious of that breath to catch it and one whom is not conscious of it is heedless.
03:44 - So, then the student had to have been taught - the power of the breath, the realities of the breath, importance of that zikr (Divine Remembrance) of ‘Hu’ and all its haqqaiqs (realities), then they sit and begin to train on how to breathe.
04:00 - ‘Nazar bar Qadam’ (Watch your Footstep) is – to keep your focus upon your step and your path.
04:09 - So, it’s not you pick up and say, ‘Oh my gosh, I should just keep watching my feet everywhere I walk. ’ It was that a shaykh had to have taught you.
04:18 - The fact that nobody is teaching anything and then they just make comments that – they don’t like this; they don’t like that because now the time of immense jealousy - and this is what killed Imam Hussain (as), this is what killed most of the Ahlul Bayt (Holy family of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ).
04:36 - Because of the light they carry and because of whatever Allah (AJ) want to bestow upon them, they found that to be very threatening and they said, ‘As long as you’re on earth the people won’t come to us, they’ll be attracted to you, so if we kill you then they’ll be sitting with us. ’ And this is a jealousy of people.
05:03 - Instead of the goal being to reach to the reality; goals are different for each person, and that which they don’t understand and they have very little knowledge of - become angered by it.
05:20 - So that’s why of course, it’s not perfect, nobody’s claiming, ‘This is a Qur’an and that we are Prophets,’ astaghfirullah (seek forgiveness from Allah (AJ).
05:26 - We’re just donkeys of awliyaullah and there may be many imperfections but the intention was the love of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.
05:36 - And pious people they are mahfuz (safeguarded) – Allah (AJ) guards them, corrects it and fixes it.
05:41 - And the madad (support) of awliyaullah come to inspire them any correction that is required within it.
05:47 - So, means that this… these principles are the course guide, so then the shaykhs of Naqshbandiya tul ‘Aliya should be teaching these courses so that the student can adhere to the principles laid by Naqshbandiya and Mawlana Shah Naqshband (Q) – Fardul Alam wa Shah-e-kul.
06:10 - So, Nazar bar Qadam and the nazar (gaze) they even go deeper that - it’s not the eyes of your physical but the eye of your heart.
06:24 - That to be vigilant of your heart that continuously monitoring that, ‘What I’m going to do and what I’m going to do in my life – is this a part of my path or this is a distraction from my path?’ And when time is short in these days and in these times of difficulty – it’s even much stronger now.
06:48 - Every choice you’re about to make, if you email us, you’re going to get the answer most likely you want to hear because nobody’s at the level to get an answer in which they need to hear.
07:01 - They actually become angered when you give them an answer that they needed to hear.
07:06 - So, when you’re asking, ask yourself – the choice you’re about to make, is that for your path? You’re going to be drawing closer to the Divine, closer to the Prophetic reality, closer to the reality of awliya and shaykhs and guides? And that’s what ‘Nazar’ means that, ‘I’m watching my feet; it looks like my feet are taking me away. ’ But what is coming into your heart is what’s really pulling you and that’s the secret.
07:37 - You know that by shaitan (satan) more than by Rahman (The Most Compassionate) because shaitan’s more prevalent.
07:43 - So, when he puts out Instagram – he’s taking your nazar and pulling you into a direction, and he knows that what you’re looking at is going to be pulling you, ‘Come, come’ like the Pied Piper, ‘Come this way’ and before you know it all your desires are not towards the Divinely Presence.
08:06 - So that’s why the Divinely Presence is inside the heart, when you keep meditating that, ‘The choices I’m making, is this going into my heart. ’ Now he [satan] made it faster and he put out his TikTok and these children are going completely wild, they can’t control anything that they’re seeing, their desires, their understandings because it’s coming so much into them pulling them into a direction.
08:32 - And that’s Nazar bar Qadam, and then shaitan uses it for dunya (material world) in the book called ‘The Secret – Wish for a parking space and it appears’ [shaykh refers to teaching from the book], you’re using your spiritual power for a parking space and for material world where you should be putting your nazar upon your heart and to reach your Lord’s Divinely Pleasure.
08:57 - And they keep me in the company of those whom You have favored from “Nabiyeen, Siddiqeen, Shuhadayi was Saliheen. ” If in your life you’re keeping the presence of that – do you feel the love and you’re being taught about the love of the nabiyeen (prophets) and Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ - sultan (king) of all the Prophets? Have you been taught about the love of all the Prophets? Have you been taught about the holiness and the greatness of the holy companions in relation to your spirituality? Not physical stories – this companion he went to get water then this companion he went on the camel.
09:37 - But what is their spiritual reality, what’s their faiz (downpouring blessings) and nazar upon you to raise you? And saliheen (righteous), shuhadayi (witnesses) was saliheen (and the righteous).
09:47 - If you’re being taught from these then you’re being taught from the reality of the Ka’bah, and that you’ve been taught about the realities of Allah (AJ) because Allah (AJ) is with them.
09:58 - If you’re being taught about them, Allah’s (AJ) with them.
10:02 - So, you’re being prepared for this step, so that when the shaykh is teaching you ‘Nazar,’ you understand, you understand how to connect your heart, you understand how to make a hisaab (account) every night.
10:14 - So, these not just 11 things that you keep reading and think you can do it on your own.
10:19 - There must have been a curriculum being taught and then you can go back and when you read each principle you can say, ‘Oh that’s why the shaykh taught that. ’ He taught that you should be making tafakkur (contemplation), you should be vigilant of your heart, you should make a hisaab on your heart – an accounting of your heart.
10:39 - Then of course he’ll have a nazar and you’ll understand what your heart… why is it fluctuating, why is it going this direction versus going towards Allah (AJ).
10:49 - Safar dar Watan – is journey to the homeland.
10:55 - Do you feel that you are from paradise and that it’s your responsibility to go back? Do you feel that you’re of a spiritual nature sent for a physical experience? We’re spiritual beings and we’ve been sent to this earth for a physical experience and to see are we going to lose ourself? And you have to use this body that Allah (AJ) gave to us to go back ‘In’ and not ‘Out. ’ Go inside – go for the inner reality, the inner Ka’bah.
11:34 - Sanctify the inner presence and the inner realities that Allah (AJ) has dressed and blessed us upon.
11:43 - Only through that training then ‘Khalwat dar Anjuman’ (Solitude in the Crowd).
11:47 - You have to have been taught – how to meditate, how to contemplate, how to keep your consciousness of your heart so that you can be in a seclusion amongst people.
12:00 - That you can keep the presence of your madad while talking to people.
12:05 - You can keep the presence of the madad and the faiz of the shaykh while working.
12:12 - Keep the madad and the presence while everything that you’re doing so that your heart does not become distracted and that you’re… you’re vigilant over your heart.
12:22 - You feel the sensitivity of your heart. We’ve talked before that – you step into somewhere and you feel the energy is not correct and that you’re not safe or your family’s not safe - you should be vigilant of that.
12:34 - Not that, ‘Oh something happened and I… yeah, I kind of stepped in the wrong way and all of a sudden I found myself deeper into the problem,’ that wasn’t the training.
12:42 - Your training was to be sensitive to everything, be sensitive to your environment - everywhere you step you should have known completely the environment of where you are.
12:53 - And as a result, you have to keep the connection with your heart at all times so that if the signal comes, ‘You’re in a dangerous place – get out,’ follow the signal.
13:05 - The more you follow that signal, the more you’re attuned into that signal.
13:10 - So you should have been taught those for you to understand what is this Safar dar Watan (Journey to Homeland) and the journey inside.
13:17 - Khalwah dar Anjuman – how to be secluded amongst the self.
13:22 - And now ‘Yad kard’ was ‘Essential Remembrance. ’ ‘Yad kard’ that, ‘Yade man kard’ that he remembered me.
13:36 - ‘Yad kard’ is the ‘Essential remembrance’ and in this state from Mawlana Shaykh’s (Q) articles on Mawlana Shah Naqshband (Q) – this state is achieved through reciting everyday the zikr of negation, ‘La ilaha illallah’ and that that zikr of ‘La ilaha illallah’ to negate and to make the servant to reach a station of death.
14:05 - Without this teaching if you think that you can just open up and say, ‘La ilaha illallah, La ilaha illallah, La ilaha illallah’ – nothing going to happen for you.
14:18 - This is an understanding of why many people become confused because the later states are going to talk about the state of being in the love and in the zikr of Allah (AJ).
14:33 - But if you’re going to that state with ‘you’ – you’ll achieve nothing.
14:40 - So, that’s why all the teaching was – you don’t exist.
14:48 - You are supposed to negate yourself, ‘I’m nothing, I don’t exist Ya Rabbi. ’ The shaykh at that time was to have taught you, ‘Of course, you don’t exist.
15:00 - All that’s important is the love of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ,’ because there’s only La ilaha illallah Muhammadun Rasulallah ﷺ.
15:13 - From this level on if you didn’t understand that - these principles not going to open anything for you.
15:20 - So, this is not something he gave for everyone, ‘Just you take it and go. ’ You must have been sitting with some real Naqshbandi shaykhs to have sat and taught you through the curriculum of all their books, all their websites and all their videos.
15:36 - So, then at this level ‘Yad kard’ that they remembered.
15:43 - They remembered what? That you didn’t und… you didn’t exist, and you negated yourself.
15:54 - You were the drop all your life thinking your drop is so powerful, so important, who you are, what you’re going to get, what you’re going to buy, what your status is.
16:04 - But the shaykh should have taught you that, ‘No you’re a drop, throw it back in the ocean. ’ When it goes back into the ocean, it goes back into the ocean of Muhammadun Rasulallah ﷺ.
16:21 - Means that when you’re doing your muraqabah (spiritual connection), doing all the meditations, asking to be dressed that, ‘I’m nothing, I’m nothing, I’m nothing, see myself as nothing.
16:33 - That I’m asking to be in the dress of my shaykh, the fana (annihilation) of my shaykh.
16:37 - My shaykh is the Muhammadan light. I’m keeping that, keeping my manners, keeping my character.
16:44 - As a result, I’m becoming Muhammadiyoon. ’ As a Muhammadiyoon when you begin to make ‘La ilaha illallah’ – it’s real.
16:59 - ‘La ilaha illallah’ because you are in the ocean of Muhammadun Rasulallah ﷺ.
17:04 - But if you’re not in the ocean, don’t understand anything about ‘Muhammadun Rasulallah ﷺ’ – what the benefit of you keep saying ‘La ilaha illallah. ’ Because then it’s you, ‘La ilaha illallah… Nurjan something’ – no.
17:18 - The true power of that reality, the true essence of what the shaykhs are trying to open for us, ‘Ya kard’ that He remembered.
17:33 - He remembered one – that he’s nothing, and then he remembered the ocean in which he came from and that he was taught and he was firm in his understanding, ‘I’m nothing.
17:47 - La ilaha illa anta Subhanaka, innee kuntu minazh zhalimeen – Glory be to you Ya Rabbi and that I’m an oppressor to myself.
17:55 - I’m nothing, nothing, nothing. ’ I’m not here to try to find something about myself; I’m here to reach Your Divinely Presence.
18:03 - And as a result, Allah (AJ) pushes then that, ‘You should find about My beloved presence - the reality of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. ’ So, then the shaykh should be teaching the Muhammadan haqqaiqs – the Muhammadan realities.
18:20 - Nurul anwar wa sirratal asrar – the source of every secret and the secret of every light is Muhammadun Rasulallah ﷺ.
18:31 - When you’re dressed with that ‘Yad kard’ then they begin to teach you - make your zikr of ‘La ilaha illallah. ’ ‘La [to the head], ilaha [to the right right], illallah [into the heart], La, ilaha, illallah. ’ And they sit and in their dress of their muraqabah, dress of the Muhammadan light that they nothing and they want the reality within the Muhammadan heart of, ‘La [shaykh points to head], ilaha [points to left chest], illallah’ [points to heart].
19:00 - At every ‘La ilaha illallah’ is as if they cracking and shaking everything.
19:05 - They can reach a station of death by the zikr of ‘La ilaha illallah,’ and they can resuscitate themself with ‘Muhammadun Rasulallah ﷺ. ’ Everything perishes and negates and what come back into existence by the power of Muhammadun Rasulallah ﷺ.
19:26 - So, means they can’t go deeper into that reality unless they’ve been taught because from this point on is all has to be in the dress of ‘Muhammadun Rasulallah ﷺ. ’ Then ‘Baz gasht’ (Returning back).
19:52 - Principle 6 – Baz gasht. This is a state in which the seeker who makes the zikr of negation and affirmation comes to the understanding of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, “Ilahi anta maqsudi wa radhaaka matloob.
20:12 - Ilahi anta maqsudi wa radhaaka matloob” – ‘My Lord that You are my aim and Your good pleasure and satisfaction is what I’m seeking. ’ And that they recite the phrase to increase the seeker’s awareness of the Oneness of Allah (AJ) until he reaches a state of existence of all creation vanishes from his eyes and into the oceans of fana (annihilation).
20:44 - They recite this zikr in order to extract from their heart the secrets of Oneness and open themselves to the reality of the Unique Oneness and Divinely Presence.
20:55 - And, ‘Whoever imitates a group of people will belong to them’ - from Sayyidina Muhammad’s ﷺ saying.
21:03 - And whoever imitates his teacher will someday find his secret open in his heart.
21:09 - The meaning of ‘Baz gasht’ is to return back to Allah (AJ) Almighty and Exalted.
21:15 - It’s a complete surrender and submissioning to His Will.
21:22 - “Illahi anta maqsodi, wa Ridaka Matlob,” and its reality that its one – you are reciting, “Illahi anta maqsodi, illahi, illahi” - this has to do with that you don’t exist and the “Illahi” and the reality of Sayyidina Muhammad’s ﷺ Divinely lights.
21:59 - “Illahi anta maqsod wa Ridaka Matlob” – that I’m nothing, I’m nothing and seeking Your pleasure, asking Your forgiveness and seeking Your pleasure.
22:10 - And to annihilate oneself into the oceans of nothingness and that the witnessing into the heart of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ because your mi’raj (ascension) to Allah (AJ) is inside of the Muhammadan haqqaiq.
22:26 - That when your light is entering into that… ‘Baz gasht’ is that – you’re entering into the light, into the reality of Sayyidina Muhammad’s ﷺ heart and Divinely heart.
22:39 - “Illahi anta maqsodi” at one level you’re asking Prophet’s ﷺ light that, I’m asking forgiveness, his illahiyat (lordship).
22:49 - “Illahi anta maqsodi wa Ridaka Matlob,” hmm, because you don’t exist to be talking to Allah (AJ).
23:02 - You’re entering into the Muhammadan heart and you’re understanding now and you should have been taught – all your istighfar (seeking forgiveness) was for Prophet ﷺ.
23:16 - And that way at that… at that reality of entering into the Muhammadan heart, Allah (AJ) ayatul kareem (the generous verse of Holy Qur’an), “Jaooka fastaghfaro Allaha wastaghfara lahumur Rasol. ” That’s the “Jaooka” that your light is entering into the Muhammadan heart and that Allah’s (AJ) saying that that, ‘You are oppressed yourself, that your light run to the presence of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. ’ It understands that this Muhammadan light that was given to me, Allah (AJ) you’re asking istighfar but you’re the one whom is harming is Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.
23:55 - If we take in the Muhammadan light when we’re doing something bad, we’re doing it bad to the light of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.
24:03 - We have no attachment to Allah (AJ) – Allah’s (AJ) not connected to His creation.
24:07 - Why you’re asking Allah’s (AJ) forgiveness, because Allah (AJ) loves Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.
24:12 - Said, ‘I gave this as a trust to you,’ but the reality of the istighfar is that we’re asking Prophet ﷺ for forgiveness, ‘Sayyidi Ya Rasulul kareem (the Most Generous Messenger) forgive me, forgive me for what I’m doing bad and what I do of gunah (sin), what I do of incorrectness.
24:30 - That this light it’s not meeting where it’s supposed to.
24:35 - The frequency of my bad, sayyiati a’maluna – of the bad deeds of my action, the sins of my actions, change the frequency of my light to attach into your reality.
24:47 - And so with the istighfar and this praising’s, ilahi anta maqsudi wa radhaaka matloob - that I’m begging your forgiveness and asking for your rida and satisfaction, that forgive me. ’ If Prophet ﷺ forgives that light, forgives that servant and asks to Allah (AJ) that, ‘Forgive them for my sake,’ the frequency of that light is entering into a fana.
25:14 - Means we’re taking our frequency to attune ourself to the light of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, not to the darajat (spiritual rank) - it can never be achieved.
25:25 - But it’s like you’re going through a door, if your frequency is off and the sins are high and the character is bad – it can’t reach to that reality.
25:35 - And so, then all of its training is to clean, it’s continuously asking Prophet ﷺ for forgiveness, ‘Forgive me, forgive me, ilahi anta maqsudi wa radhaaka matloob. ’ That’s why, that’s why then they write it that ‘Asking Allah (AJ)’ because if you are in a Muhammadan light then what exists is only Allah (AJ).
26:02 - But if you are in Nurjan trying to reach Allah (AJ) then where was Muhammadun Rasulallah ﷺ? It became three, like a partner.
26:14 - But when Nurjan doesn’t exist and Nurjan is in the Muhammadan light then that’s why when the shaykhs are teaching from these levels on is they asking Allah, Allah, Allah because they are in the Muhammadan haqqaiq, they are in the ocean of Muhammadun Rasulallah ﷺ, so no doubt everything is La ilaha illallah.
26:36 - And they witness from the heart of Prophet ﷺ and in their Muhammadan dress, ‘Illahi anta maqsodi wa Ridaka Matlob’ asking Allah (AJ) in their Muhammadan dress.
26:52 - If the student not taught that then they believe that they are communicating with Allah (AJ) and it’s Allah (AJ) and them and they forgot and never were even taught the realities of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.
27:06 - And that’s why many people get confused from the teachings, say, ‘Why are you all talking about Prophet ﷺ and not talking about Allah (AJ)?’ Say, ‘No Allah’s (AJ) going to come but He wants us to understand that to enter into these realities and these ma’rifah (Gnosticism), these oceans of uniqueness and Oneness, Allah (AJ) not accepting anything but Muhammadun Rasulallah ﷺ. ’ And if… if you are moving in the ocean of Muhammadun Rasulallah ﷺ then you make istighfar, you cleanse, you purify with the best of character, best of actions and that purity is now moving.
27:50 - And in that Muhammadan haqqaiq Prophet ﷺ allows the light to enter into his Divinely heart.
27:58 - Can you imagine that your soul’s light entering into the heart of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ? Where Allah (AJ) describes ‘Muqarrabin’ – they are a level of angels they circumambulate the Divine throne.
28:14 - Where is the Divine throne of Allah (AJ)? It’s on the heart of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.
28:22 - The Muqarrabiyoon – they are just circumambulating and praising the reality of what they see of Allah (AJ) because they are all Muhammadiyoon.
28:34 - So, we can see that without that curriculum none of this would have made sense and I think we’ve met a few other Naqshbandis they… they think that they’re doing that ‘Allah, Allah, Allah’ but they were taught nothing about Muhammadun Rasulallah ﷺ.
28:57 - And this is all deep realities of the Muhammadan haqqaiq.
29:06 - So, then to remember we’re in the ocean of Muhammadun Rasulallah ﷺ in the Muhammadan dress asking Allah (AJ) forgiveness, asking Prophet’s ﷺ forgiveness.
29:22 - Then ‘Nigah e dasht’ (Attentiveness) – the 7th principle in the Muhammadan dress, in the oceans of fana, in the oceans of muraqabah.
29:33 - ‘Nigah’ is ‘Sight’ and it means that the seeker must watch his heart and safeguard it by preventing bad thoughts from entering.
29:42 - The bad inclination keeping the heart from joining the Divine.
29:47 - Why? Because if you are in the dress of Muhammadun Rasulallah ﷺ, anything wrong takes the light out.
30:00 - Truth and falsehood, they don’t match. So, means that to keep the soul’s purity to enter in, because where is going to be the station of witnessing – is in the qalb (heart) of Muhammadun Rasulallah ﷺ. Manzil ul Qur’an – where the Qur’an is emanating is the ocean of power.
30:18 - So, the soul is in a mi’raj into that reality.
30:23 - The more purity the soul, the more access it has to the Muhammadan heart.
30:29 - When it loses its purity then as if like a magnetic push it pushed down to a different and a lower level.
30:37 - So, the “Ilahi anta maqsudi” is the continuous cleansing.
30:41 - ‘La ilaha illallah’ is the affirmation, ‘I don’t exist, all that exist is Allah (AJ) and Muhammadun Rasulallah ﷺ. ’ It’s the complete reality of oceans of tawheed (oneness).
30:53 - So, when the usool (principles) when they say, ‘Oh you…’ the first usool is, ‘La ilaha illallah Muhammadun Rasulallah ﷺ’ and the ocean of tawheed that nothing exists but Allah (AJ) and the only creation is Muhammadun Rasulallah ﷺ - this is the highest level of tawheed.
31:11 - And everyone else is thinking that they exist, Muhammadun Rasulallah ﷺ exists and Allah (AJ) is the Creator.
31:19 - That’s no longer Oneness, that’s multiple. So, means this is the depth of the ocean of Naqshbandiya realities.
31:30 - The witnessing of that reality that they continuously vigilant over themselves, their heart, their actions, and their character.
31:39 - That to keep the frequency of their character, to keep the frequency of their nature to be into that proximity in the reality of the heart of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.
31:50 - That’s why they don’t argue, they don’t fight, they don’t debate because if they were to witness their heart and these arguments, these debates, these types of energies – it creates a darkness within their heart.
32:06 - As a result, their soul will be expelled from the reality of where it is, just by virtue of its agitation and cleanliness.
32:17 - These realities of light and frequency are sensitive.
32:22 - The frequency in which the light is emanating and the cleanliness of the light – it’s granting its proximity.
32:31 - Any agitation in the character, in the demeanor of that light, what happens - it shoots that light again down to a different reality.
32:42 - And that’s why then they’re always making istighfar, always crying, always asking for forgiveness, so that that tawbah (repentance) to clean their reality and bring their light back into the association of al-Qalb al-Muhammadiyyah and that diwan and in that association to receive those emanations.
33:00 - And that’s when the holy hadith begins to give its depth of its reality at ‘Nigah e dasht’ Prophet ﷺ describing, ‘Who knows himself will know his Lord. ’ Because that ‘Nigah’ that they took a whole life of continuously knowing themself.
33:22 - All of the essences of these holy hadith are deep within these principles of ma’rifah.
33:32 - That to look at that reality then that’s the opening of that holy hadith, ‘Who knows himself - wa ‘arafa nafsahu, ‘arafa Rabbahu ’ that understood clearly his nafs (ego) and all his lower desires, obliterated those and then continuously watching the nafs from any sort of frequency or intrusion.
33:57 - Like a terror group intruding within their being, shaitans are coming in to intrude.
34:04 - Continuously vigilant over that to wash, to cleanse and to kick out.
34:10 - And as a result he begins to know his Lord, he’s in the ocean of that, that Lord is Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.
34:20 - We described before ‘Rabb’ (lord) ‘Lordliness,’ ‘House of lords,’ and to witness The Lord Most High – it’s in the heart of the reality of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.
34:35 - So, that not to witness Allah (AJ)outside of that reality, it doesn’t exist.
34:42 - But to enter into the reality of Muhammadun Rasulallah ﷺ inside the heart of that reality to witness Allah’s (AJ) Oneness and to witness Allah’s (AJ) Uniqueness.
34:56 - This now opening into the oceans when they enter into the oceans of Wahdaniya (Ocean of Oneness) and they entered into the oceans of Al-Wahid (The Unique One) - that one whom is unique in Allah’s (AJ) creation is the reality of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.
35:12 - There is no soul like that, there is no angel like that because they’re all from Muhammadun Rasulallah ﷺ.
35:19 - Every angel is made from that light. every paradise is made from that light, the throne is made from that light.
35:25 - This is all an ocean of One, but if they enter into the heart and into the reality where the Qur’an is emanating – this is the oceans of Al-Ahadiyah (The Ocean of Oneness) and the Unique Oneness of Allah (AJ).
35:49 - Where do we see that on the Ka’bah? So, there’s a spiritual hajj (pilgrimage) and there’s a physical hajj.
35:56 - The concept of the physical hajj is that - all you people with all your clothes and all your cars and all your jewelry and all your wealth and all your poverty – Allah (AJ) makes a calling.
36:12 - And that’s why we come in ‘Labbaik (Here I am, at Your service), Allahumma Labbaik. ’ From all over this earth, they enter into now the holy precincts where there’s a symbol of Oneness which is the symbol of the Divine heart.
36:31 - It’s all symbolic – the Ka’bah represents a heart.
36:36 - From wherever you are and you’re going to begin to enter into these precincts, you have to shower, wash and put your white robe because Allah (AJ) doesn’t are for your status, doesn’t care for your wealth.
36:47 - Your wealth won’t get you anything here, your status will because you even more problems in Allah’s (AJ) Presence.
36:55 - So, you see this collapsing and crushing like what we’re talking of doing in ma’rifah and the way of Sufism through your life’s training – Allah’s (AJ) doing it in one moment in the hajj.
37:08 - So, they take off all those clothes, they shower and then you go into an area that you have to put your ihram - your white outfit.
37:20 - And then from all this multiplicity they start to become into the oceans of singularity and you see them entering into now the Ka’bah which is representing the one heart, and they all come in white.
37:36 - So, what happens now? That is the ocean of Wahdaniya.
37:40 - So, Allah (AJ) says, ‘I’ll show you on the horizon and then you’ll see within yourself. ’ So, Allah (AJ) showing for those whom are observing from out, ‘You see how they’re all different, I’m going to bring them into the Oneness of Muhammadun Rasulallah ﷺ. ’ And all of a sudden they all come in white and you can’t distinguish anymore what were multiple people.
38:06 - Then Allah (AJ) begin to circumambulate them because that’s their path – their tariq.
38:13 - A life of continuous tawaf and circumambulating that which you believe before you see this group becoming crushed.
38:22 - Wahid (The Unique One) Al-Qahhar (The Subduer) – Allah (AJ) brings them in through the sifat Al-Wahid (attribute of The Unique One) with sifat Al-Qahhar (attribute of The Subduer) begin to crush them so that they’re not all spread out but they’re crushed into one circle circumambulating the center which is a heart.
38:50 - The spiritual hajj, they see themselves in that tawaf, they see themself being crushed – their physicality and Allah (AJ) send their soul through Hajar al Aswad (The Black Stone) and they see themself in their tawaf they were crushed in their tawaf and pushed through Hajar al Aswad in which they entered into the oceans of Unique Oneness of Allah (AJ).
39:22 - So, Wahid – they came to Oneness. Qahhar – Allah (AJ) began crushing them that’s why the hajj is crushing.
39:31 - It’s not meant to be comfortable and spread out.
39:33 - It’s meant to be symbolic – your path is to crush you into ‘one,’ you move as ‘one’ because you’re in an ocean of Oneness - symbolic ocean of Divine Oneness.
39:46 - And as a result, you’ll be crush, crush, crush and when Allah (AJ) determines sincerity – He’ll shoot your soul through Hajar al Aswad into the Divinely reality, into that ocean of realities.
39:59 - We pray that Allah (AJ) give us more and more understanding and the physical hajj, what is the symbolisms of a spiritual hajj and the realities of these principles of awliyaullah which they laid for us of these immense realities.
40:17 - And that these principles and the reason to go over these principles – this is the daleel (proof) that this teaching should have been taking place.
40:26 - Otherwise, none of the Naqshbandi principles for Naqshbandis makes any sense if they weren’t taught about the haqqaiqs of Oneness, the haqqaiqs of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ, the haqqaiqs of ma’rifah and tafakkur - and contemplation.
40:44 - That’s why these secrets are all from Mawlana Shah Naqshband (Q) and every… in every and every moment there are 124,000 awliyaullah and out of 124,000 awliyaullah there are 7007 that are Naqshbandi awliya.
41:05 - And from those 7007 upon this earth, Mawlana Shah Naqshband (Q) will dress them from 12,000 different knowledges and they’re lucky if at least one of their realities will begin to appear on this earth, just one of the haqqaiqs to come out.
41:30 - So, imagine then all these realities that they’re teaching – all of the realities of tafakkur, all of the realities of muraqabah, all of the realities of Lataif ul Qalb (subtle energy points of the heart), all of the realities of ilm e huroof (knowledge of letters) and the knowledge of numbers – all of these realities from Naqshbandiya, the depth of the Naqshbandiya realities and the dress of Ahlul Bayt.
42:00 - All of those if they’re not taught these 11 principles don’t activate.
42:05 - We pray that Allah (AJ) dress us and bless us from their reality and the immensity of their reality, and that their faiz and their lights to dress us, bless us and Allah (AJ) to complete His Divinely favors upon our souls.
42:21 - Those whom watching, those whom supporting, those whom are active inshaAllah Allah (AJ) dress them and bless them.
42:27 - Subhana rabbika rabbal ‘izzati ‘amma yasifoon, wa salaamun ‘alal mursaleen, walhamdulillahi rabbil ‘aalameen.
42:34 - Bi hurmati Muhammad al-Mustafa wa bi siri Surat al-Fatiha. .
