Pictures of Maulana Sheikh NazimClose Your Eyes and See


Yaa Rabbana! Yaa Rabbi 'ghfir wa 'rham wa anta khayru 'r-Rahimeen. (Mawlana Shaykh stands)
Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, `Azeez Allah
Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Kareem Allah
Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Subhaan Allah
Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Sultaan Allah

Zid yaa Rabbee, habeebik Sayyidi 'l-Awwaleen wa ’l-`Akhireen, Sayyidina Muhammad (s). Zidhu yaa Rabbee `izzan wa sharafan nooran wa surooran, ridwaana wa sultaanan wa `alaa jami` il-anbiyaa wa awliyaa. Zidhum yaa Rabbee `izzan ma` habeebika al-Mustapha wa man tabi`ahum bi `ihsan `ila yawmi 'd-deen. (Mawlana Shaykh sits)

As-salaamu `alaykum to all our attenders. I am also a member of one big, human family. All of us are weak members and we have been loaded with a heavenly order to carry that order. That order was just offered to us; take from heavenly power or heavenly authority, then you can carry it. May Allah forgive us!

O People! We are saying, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Run away from Shaytan and say, Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem! (Mawlana Shaykh stands) When you are saying the Holy Name of Allah Almighty, stand up! We are weak servants, we are standing only once, but if we can stand up in every minute it is also nothing. (Mawlana Shaykh sits) But it is good manners that we must try to keep at least once. Look, listen and take something from heavenly trainings that if you keep, you may be rewarded with heavenly grants.

O our Attenders! As-salaamu `alaykum. Leave a very short time for listening to heavenly khitaab, announcement to Earth. Try to keep that order even once.

O our Salaafiyoon! O no-mind Wahhabiyoon and Salafi `ulamas! You claim you are `ulamas, so I have one question for you. Perhaps you are going to object when I am standing up and making people to stand up when we are saying our Lord's Holy Name. You may say it is too much, and you may also say if you sit it is okay. If a person is asking to begin praying salaah, the first fard obligation is takbeer, to say, "Allahu Akbar." (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Do you think that if you are sitting and saying Allahu Akbar, it is acceptable? (Mawlana Shaykh sits) There are so many daleel, proofs, for everything they are granting to our humble association, yes. I stand up when I say, “Allahu Akbar.” (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Allah gives me much more power every time I am standing up! (Mawlana Shaykh sits)

Hal yajuuz takbeer fi 'l-khitaab. Is it permissible to glorify Allah? Takbeer is to say, “Allahu Akbar,” but official servanthood is what we have been ordered, that if we are coming to pray and we are sitting, we must stand up to say, “Allahu Akbar!” (Mawlana Shaykh stands) When you are sitting it is not acceptable. (Mawlana Shaykh sits) Is it permissible to glorify Allah when making an address? Therefore, our Salafi `ulamas are not accepting it when we are standing up. You are no-mind people! Look, when you are coming to pray, you must begin by saying, “Allahu Akbar!” (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits) When you are sitting on the carpet, it can't be. Therefore, don't object to those who stand; it may bring you some punishment. I am nothing here, but my boss, Allahu Akbar, may touch them.

Yes, when you are saying takbeer, you must say it standing! That is ta`leem, training to servants, that when they are saying takbir they must stand up. In salaah it is obligatory, and out of salaah it is really obligatory, but Shari`ah is making that a little bit lighter because people are very lazy. They may run after dunya like dogs running after rabbits. Do you know rabbits? They are not tiring to run after dunya, but they are tiring when we are saying, “Allahu Akbar.” (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Say, "Don't worry! Is Allah very happy or angry with us? That is our teaching." They are teaching me and I am asking to teach you, yes. (Mawlana Shaykh sits) Allahu Akbar. Laa ilaaha illa-Llah.

O People! Try to give your most high respect for your Lord, your Creator, Who is asking:

وَاسْجُدُوا وَاعْبُدُوا رَبَّكُمْ
Wasjudoo wa a`budoo rabbakum, Bow down and prostrate yourself to your Lord! (22:77)

(Mawlana Shaykh bows in sajdah.) Allahu Akbar! Is it not fard? Ayatu 's-sajdah. That heavenly order is for always. If you are not raising your head, it is okay. Some may ask, "What about our dunya? We must do this and that." You are not created to run after dunya or to collect dunya, you are created for your Lord, to keep His orders! Where are our `ulamas to teach this to people? You are saying, you are Salaafiyoon, Salafi `ulamas, why are you not saying this in the king's presence? Do you say, "It doesn't matter if we stand up every time the king enters." You are never saying this, even if the sultan is coming one hundred times, it is not too much for you to stand! So what about for Allah (swt)?! Allahu Akbar! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits)

Tawbah, yaa Rabbee! We are asking from our Lord, forgive us and send us some ones who may teach us the best manners, and best adab.

O our Attenders! Don't be drunk ones. O People! There is a saying from holy ones, Ahlu ’l-Tasawwuf, the People of Sufism, a description of tariqah people. Mureed ibn waqtuh, “A mureed is a son of his time who observes what is coming.” And when they are ibn waqtih, people of time, they must try to keep heavenly protocols, tashreefaat, for our Lord. Allahu Akbar al-Akbar. Allah, Allah! At all times a mureed must be awakened, muraqabah, observing, always looking for heavenly tajalli, manifestations, so he may reach it. And Ahlu ’l-Tasawwuf are saying mureed ibn waqtuh observe as a cat in front of mice (with concentration). As much as you try to distract it, it never looks away from its potential food.

Every hour, every day, every minute, every second and third, the smallest part of time, always heavenly treasures are coming from the Heavens. Therefore, our know-nothing `ulamas object, "Why are mureeds sitting like this? Why are they not opening their eyes to look?" And we are saying. there are two eyes to look at what is around us, and there is another grant from Allah Almighty inside, and this power may observe from east to west when they are sitting like this! Tasawwuf people say after muraqabah, meditation/concentration, comes mushahadah, the witnessing or vision. They close their eyes and their hearts' eyes open and there must be some appearances, mushahadah. Therefore, they always like to make muraqabah! Do you think that they are sleeping? No! They are diving in Unseen Worlds!

O People! Try to reach some heavenly jewels that are just granted to Mankind. Don't run after dunya like a dog running after a rabbit, for then you are wasting your very precious lives! Make muraqabah and that screen will appear where you may see everything in it. They are trying not to lose it because in every second there is coming such unknown, unseen appearances that you can't imagine! Therefore, they like to sit like this. But others who think they are sleeping say, "Get up and sleep on your bed." There is such a far distance in their understanding and the real understanding of (those in meditation.)

O People! In this week we are reaching Holy Ramadan. What we are saying now is an ocean; up to the end of the world it is never ending! Inshaa-Allah we hope that hillaal, the moon's crescent of Holy Ramadan, is going to be first laylatu 'th-thulatha, Monday night reaching to Tuesday. The last day for Sha`baan Mu`azzam is Monday and the first of Ramadan is Tuesday. In the night you must pray Taraweeh and say, ahlan wa sahlan yaa shahru 'r-rahmah, yaa shahru 'l-barakah, yaa shahru 'l-ghufraan, yaa shahru 'r-rahmah! Ask for everything! Don't ask for stones that have no value, that you are walking on, ask from yaqoot, rubies, pearls, and emeralds! It is enough that we are running after fertilizing. Don't run after that, run after treasures, every day and every night, and you will be happy here and Hereafter! When you are going to be happy you are making your Lord, Allah Almighty, happy with you, and He makes you happy here and Hereafter!

O People! Say, astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah. Tubna wa rajana `ilayk yaa Rabbana, yaa Rabbana, yaa Rabbana 'ghfir lanaa maa madaa yaa wasi` al karami, “We have reformed our ways and have returned to You (O Allah); forgive us what preceded, O You, the Most Generous.”

You have endless Generosity Oceans! Ask them to be granted to you forever! We don't know if we have two or three days more. Only Allah knows who is going to live; millions of people are going to be carried away before reaching Ramadan and we must also think, “It may be this Ramadan is our last Ramadan, and we will not reach another.” Therefore, take as much as possible, much more heavenly treasures; you will be happy. May Allah forgive us!

O People! Say, astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah. Tubna wa rajana `ilayk yaa Rabbana. Rabbi 'ghfir wa 'rham wa anta khayru 'r-Rahimeen. Bi jaahi man anzaltahu `alayhi Surat al-Fatihah.

(37 minutes)

Fatihah.
