Maulana Sheikh NazimAsk Those Possessed of Knowledge


(Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, la ilaaha illa-Llah, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, wa lillahi ‘l- hamd! You are our Lord, our Creator. O our Lord forgive us and give Your blessings to Your weak servants for the honor of the most honored one (Mawlana stands) in Your Divine Presence, Sayyidina Muhammad (s). Zidhu ya rabbee `izzan wa sharafan wa nooran wa masrooran wa ridwaanan wa sulataana. You are giving to Your most beloved servant. O our Lord, for his honor, forgive us. As-salaamu `alaykum, Ya `ibaadAllahi 's-saaliheen, yaa awliyaaullah, yaa holy ones on Earth, wa rahmatullahi wa baraakatuh!

(Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

As-salaamu `alaykum, O our listeners! You have been honored to be Your Lord’s deputies on this globe through dunya. Listen and obey and try to do what our Lord is ordering His deputies. He is only ordering servanthood; He is not asking anything else. He is offering Mankind to be His servants, to do best of servanthood. That is what Allah Almighty is asking from us. We must say according to His holy command, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani ‘r-rajeem. That is one of the divine orders to heavenly people. And heavenly people are declaring that servanthood to Mankind, to humanity living on this planet.

If we are needing a support from heavens and asking a capability for servanthood according to the high commands of heavens, we are saying, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmaani ‘r-Raheem, by the name of Allah Almighty, all Merciful, most Beneficent and most Munificent. You must say Holy Names. How many Holy Names do you know, O Wahabi people? You are saying, “We are knowing 99 Holy Names.” We are also knowing as the Seal of Prophets (s) is bringing from the Divine Presence to heavenly levels people who have been honored through heavenly honors. And there are seven levels of heavens: first level and upon it second level, upon it third, fourth, fifth, sixth and then upon it, seventh level. O People, what are you thinking about levels? And you are reciting Holy Books given to people. So they are also knowing there are seven heavens in Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms and Holy Qur‘an mentioned sab`a samawaat, seven levels of heavens.

O those people who are thinking they are knowing everything, say to me the differences in the seven levels of heavens. “O Shaykh, why are you asking such a question?” Yes, I am not here speaking on behalf of myself, never; I am knowing nothing. I am not preparing myself to be here to speak to you. I am speaking according to their connections to my heart. “How this can be, O Shaykh?” I am not carrying these mobile phones. You are saying that with mobile, “We may reach from east to west, north to south, through oceans or through continents.” I am asking how? (Just) because you are keeping a mobile through your hand and saying it making you to reach east and west? If I am saying that the Lord of Heavens has granted me such an ability to reach to heavens, why are you saying, “We aren’t believing?” You may go to jahannam! Finished! Yes, you are using a small mobile and saying you are reaching east, west, north and south, and I am saying I am not using a man-made instrument. Who granted to me through my heart such a special power that I may reach a connection through first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh levels of heavens?

They are saying, “If not positive knowledge (Positivism) we are not accepting.” Shall I swear to them? How are you saying, “positive knowledge?” A mobile (phone) can reach east to west, north to south, and your positive knowledge saying “no” that my heart may reach to heavens? That is man-made. This Creator, Lord, made power here, but people are such ignorant ones now. They are never understanding anything from prophecy. They are not understanding anything from spirituality. They are going to be like rocks, no sense for them. If rock understanding, those people may understand what we are saying. You are using with your positive knowledge and instruments and saying, “Now I am listening chief of Dalai Lama.” Where is Dalai Lama, under skies? Where is skies? “Yes, I am looking but sometimes going to be black, sometimes blue. I am surprised and astonished. What is happening?”

O representatives of positive knowledge, what are you saying? Do you know how to bring a full description about darkness of night, how it is changing? Can you give a description to me about the color of daytime, how is it changing to blue? What is your knowledge saying? You are painting day, blue color and night black? What are you doing? Because you are knowing only like an atom. All your knowledge can be in an atom and still you can find more space through that atom. Why are you so proud about heavenly levels and about your Lord Almighty?

There are some people looking at the sun saying, “What is sun? Where is it? What is it doing?” Don’t discuss on such a subject because you are blind. If you are not knowing something with full knowledge why are you speaking about it? You have no right to speak on it. If you have perfect knowledge about something, then it is your right to speak about it. You are saying there are atoms. You have a certainty of atoms? If you are saying yes, how are you knowing? (You may answer,) “Through mathematical formulas we are understanding.” I am saying it is not enough; you are imagining through mathematical calculations. Have you ever seen an atom? “No.” How are you saying that you have a complete or perfect knowledge about atoms? You have no authority to say this. Because you are saying, if we are not touching, not hearing, not looking, we are not accepting anything. What about atoms? Seeing? No. Touching? No. Tasting? No. Hearing? No. What? How are you saying, “We have positive knowledge.” I am asking some mathematical problems to tell me what is positive knowledge, and beyond your positive knowledge, what is there? Nothing but negative knowledge.

Mashaa-Allah. Congratulations for our scientists and academics and PhD doctors; you are knowing everything! Congratulations to you! Say "our knowledge on this point up to that point." But beyond that, you must keep yourself within your limits. There are endless oceans of knowledge. Keep your adab, keep to your size. Try to say something according to your mindly balance. Don’t say, “This is the only limit we are accepting and beyond, we are not accepting.” Don’t be like a judge. Don’t say, “I am reaching everywhere and nothing beyond it.” (Mawlana is coughing) Perhaps physicians are unhappy with me and asking for coughing so that I may stop speaking. It doesn’t matter. If my teacher or my master keeping me and granting to me, I may say and I may speak and I may understand and I may make people to understand. Perhaps a plane going through heavy clouds, but the captain is controlling it. If an ordinary person is controlling it, that plane will fall down. Therefore, ask fas’al bihee khabeera.

الَّذِي خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا فِي سِتَّةِ أَيَّامٍ ثُمَّ اسْتَوَى عَلَى الْعَرْشِ الرَّحْمَنُ فَاسْأَلْ بِهِ خَبِيرًا
Alladhee khalaqa ‘s-samaawaati wa’l-arda wa maa baynahumaa fee sittati ayyaamin thumm ’astawaa ` alal-` arsh. Ar- Rahman fas’al bihi khabeera.
He Who created the heavens and earth and all that is between in six days and is firmly established on the Throne: Allah, Most Gracious! (Therefore) ask about Him of any acquainted (with such things). Suratu ‘l-Furqaan (25:59)

O `ulama of Arabs and `ulama of Muslims. Where are you to understand these holy words from the Holy Qur‘an that Allah Almighty saying, fas’al bihi khabeera? It means that if you are not knowing something, don’t give your judgment on it. You must ask that there must be someone who knows, maybe knows everything on this planet. However, it is not only for one person. According to our capacity, we may know something and we may know nothing also. So many things, if you are reaching a point that you can’t jump over or can’t pass that limit, you must ask someone who may take you up, opening in front of you a new understanding-Ocean. Because understanding-Oceans are countless for the Lord of Heavens. Don’t say, “This is the last point that we are reaching and understanding; beyond this we are not accepting.” Those people are the most ignorant ones!

Once upon a time there was a person sitting on a chair, like me, saying, “O People, I am such a big learned one. I am knowing everything. You can ask me and I can answer you.”
“Our teacher, I am asking you one question please. I am looking for an answer until today and no one answering,” one simple listener says.
“Yes, you may ask. What is your question?”
“I am surprised always to ask you how many hairs on your face. How many thousands or millions? I was thinking on it and I was looking for a person who knows it. And you say, ‘I know everything, you can ask me.’“
“Anyone else to ask any questions?” said the academic, as this question made him to look down.
“O our master, you said that we can ask you everything and you will answer,” said a second one standing up.
“Yes, I will answer. Look, an ant has two parts, head-side and backside. Yes, I was thinking and I am almost going to be a mad one thinking like this.”
“What you are thinking?”
“These intestines of ant are in the head-side or backside? This finishing point is in the head-side or backside? If head-side, no need for this backside. If backside, tell me how reaching from zero point to there?”
“Such a question! Sit down! What kind of question is that? Ask how many flocks you have, I may tell you! What are you asking?” the academic yelled.
“Yes sir, you know our flocks number. I am always surprising.”
“What surprising? That is another foolish one.”
“You said to ask. We are asking foolish knowledge.”
“Ask. You also don’t be like those foolish people.”
“No, no, it is important knowledge. That it so not like this question or that question.”
“Yes. What is your question?” Academic getting angry.
“Don’t be angry with me, you are such a learned person.”
“Quickly ask! I am getting angry for those two idiot ones’ questions.” Academic getting even more angry.
“No, I am not idiot. I have a little bit something.”
“Ask!”
“O our master, at night time (I am) always looking (in the) sky and it is full with candles.”
“Not candles! They are stars!” shouts the angry academic.
“I was thinking that candles just hanging there.”
“No, what an idiotic one you are, also coming to ask!”
“Don’t be angry, O our master, I am looking and seeing so many candles!”
“Once again, not candles, they are stars!”
“O our master, mostly village people are sleeping on roof terrace of their houses and I was seeing so many candles.”
“Once again, yaa Huu, stars!”
“Yes stars. I was trying from beginning of Maghrib up to midnight.”
“What were you doing?”
“I was trying to count how many there are, but I always was making a mistake. Therefore, I am asking you first. How many this side, the stars to the right? And then I am coming from midnight up to morning, but I can’t reach their numbers. If we are counting an area, is the next night going to be less or more? How can I add them? You, our master, said, ‘I know everything,’ and I am asking how many stars?”
“Sit down, no-mind person! What is that?” shouted the very angry knowing-person, the scholar.

He was PhD scholar. (laughter) Tawbah astaghfirullah, very angry, our academics, PhD doctors and astronomers. They are very proud ones. I am asking, “You counted them?” No one telling me. Hundreds of thousands PhD people are claiming, “We know everything.” You don’t know; you are ignorant. Tell me, they are thinking they know everything and they know nothing.

O People, keep your adab and your limits. You must know your limits. Don’t ask something that your capacity is never reaching. Therefore, I am sitting here and a heavenly connection is coming to speak to you and make you enjoy it, so that on the Day of Resurrection, you may say, “O our Lord, we were coming to such a person and were listening to his speeches and reports of his heavenly knowledge. We were getting happier and our hearts were much more in peace and satisfaction.”

O People, as-salaamu ` alaykum. I know your minds are saying to you, “Leave that one and look into your books. What are you doing tomorrow and after tomorrow? Why waste time sitting and listening to that old person who knows nothing?” Yes I know nothing, but from what they are teaching me, I know everything!

O People, as-salaamu ` alaykum. I am trying to learn. Therefore, we are saying it is an endless ocean that the Lord of Heavens is ordering His servants. If you are not knowing, you must ask and learn. But you most not ask an ordinary person. Khabeera means knowing about this planet and the life on it and knowing about the second life, which is a permanent life. You must learn according to your capacity. We are speaking and they are making me to address you; to make you enjoyful, to give you some understanding and satisfaction through your hearts. We are asking a happy day for you and a comfortable sleep, not to be heedless. You are coming here for learning servanthood and we are trying to make some decoration on it for understanding something.

May Allah (swt) forgive us and keep our feet on the right way, not to step on wrong way, that is important!
