Pictures of Maulana Sheikh Nazim Everyday has a speciality

Audhu bi-llahi mina shaitani rajim, Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim, la haula wa la quwatta illa bi-llahi-l ‘Aliyu-l ‘Azim…Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Meded ya Sultanu-l Anbiya, Meded ya Rijalallah...

It is an association. Every day has a speciality, every day has a special personality. (The) days of week (are) seven days, and everyone feels through himself when (it is) going to be Friday and then Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday. You have a feeling that today is Saturday, it is not Friday, and it is not Sunday. And coming another week and it has also seven days, but when we are speaking about today- it is Saturday- or we are speaking (about) past Saturday- we are saying: “That passed Saturday happened something”- this Saturday also is not same (like) that Saturday. And it is now March moon, March. This is a new March, it is not (the) same (like the one) that passed away, and coming April it is (also a) new April (that) belongs to 2004. It is not (the) same (April like the one) that passed through 2003.

You also you are not (the) same one that you have been last year in March, no. You are now in a new position, a new one. “Kulli yaumin Huwa fi sha’an” - every day (is) appearing another appearance that that appearances (are countless like as the waves on an ocean), if you can be able to calculate the waves on an ocean, you can reach the number of appearances that you are entering in it and (that are) passing. Subhanallah! People (are) thinking that they are stable, (that) nothing (is) changing, (they are saying): “I was yesterday, and I am now (the) same one that (I was) yesterday.” No, that finished, (and) tomorrow you are (again) another personality.

That belongs to (the) divinely Will that (has) programmed everyone, it is not only for mankind. Around mankind what (there is) from creation, from creatures, they are also through every second or through (every) unit of time, the less one (of that unit of time)- they are changing.

Changing (is written) for creation, (and) unchangeable Existence (is only) for (the) real Being- for the Lord of Heavens, for the Creator. If (a) changing (was) coming (to Him), (He) can’t be the Creator. (The) Creator (is) creating through every creature according to our knowledge countless changings- but it is counted. He knows! He knows where is an atom or (a) nucleus, in (the) middle; how many pieces (it may have), each one has a personality, and (also) where it is He must know. “Ya yakhfa alayhi shayun fil ardi wa la fi samaa”- can’t be anything to be hidden to the Creator. How it can be! And He is (the) Creator. If He is not creating that, it can’t be in existence. He must know, but according to our capacity… Therefore Grandsheikh always he was saying, Allah bless him: “(The) biggest mistake from mankind is: for their understanding they are trying to bring the Existence of the Lord of Heavens, the Lord of whole Creation, to their understanding area.” And look, if you are getting (up) and saying to people: “I am asking to know about (the) sun and I am trying to bring it to my understanding area, to bring it here- (Sheikh is looking to a flower) (saying:) It is like this (flower), that is sun”, ma sha Allah, he understands. As long as they are trying to understand about (the) sun, their knowledge (is) never going (to be) more than that flower. They should say only: “It looks like this”…They can’t approach and enter in it and to see and to look what is that. From far away (they are looking and) saying: “Oh, (the) sun just looks like (a) sunflower.” For creation, for (the) understanding of creation, if you are using your understanding, it is impossible for you. What it is in our seeing, in our vision, you can’t reach a real understanding (of) what it is in our vision- what about if we are saying (about what is) beyond (the) sun, beyond (the) stars, beyond (the) galaxies?

But people try to know about such a creation according to their mindly capacity and it is making them to give a judgment about creation. (It is) wrong knowledge, and they are saying ‘positive knowledge’. Positive knowledge that is the new fashion through (the) 17th century or (the) 16th century, (when) they were trying to make everything through positive knowledge area. They are trying to bring everything under (the) microscope. If they can’t bring it, they are saying: “No.” That is (the) biggest mistake, (and) also biggest (the) foolishness for those people whom they are claiming: “We are learned people”, “we are scientists”, “we are professors”... Biggest mistake and biggest ignorance from them, because you can’t bring everything under (a) microscope to look what it is, it is impossible.

So that when we are speaking for Allah Almighty that that is the beginning of some knowledge for our Creator. We are asking to step (the) first step, that (there are) countless steps, (and) countless attempts should be after it- and (even if) you are reaching a knowledge for the Lord of Heavens, He is going to be beyond that knowledge. And we are speaking something now as they are making me to speak on some points that from His mainly Attributes (is) to be unchangeable Existence. Never changing. What was written in Sri Lanka on the entrance (of that holy one’s place)? It was written: “Allah- Huwa ‘al an kama kan”- Allah, He is now as He was through eternity. Allah (is) in His Eternity; through eternal and eternal (He is the) same, (He) never changed: “Huwa-l ‘an kama kan”. Subhanallah! Kelam Awliya, the words of Awliyas, they are saying on that point. Subhanallah! Unchangeable. We are changing.

Therefore I said to you: Everything (is) going to be changed. Haci X (is also) changing, because he was awakened, now becoming to sleep, just (he) changed… and therefore: “Al idraku an darki-l idraki idraku”; that means: If you are asking to understand (something about the) real Being of Allah Almighty’s Essence (and) you are reaching (up) to a (certain) point and (then) you are saying: “Impossible”- just (in that moment) you reached real Knowledge about Him Almighty. Finally you are saying: “Impossible”, because- a simple example: Do you think that an ant can bring to his understanding (knowledge about the) real being of a man? Perhaps it can be possible, but it is impossible for any creature to reach (a) real understanding of their Creator. They are saying finally: “It is impossible.” An ant, when it is running on earth, may say: “Oh, if I can have wings, I was reaching to Heavens.” And the Creator (is) giving it wings and it is trying to fly and flies, but its distance that it may reach and fly it is maybe one meter or less or a little bit more- (it is) nothing. Do you think that it may reach to Heavens? Impossible! Therefore: “Al idraku an darki-l idraki idraku.”

That is- Subhanallahi-l ‘Aliyu-l ‘Azim- we must put our knowledge on a safe base; if not, it is going to be nonsense and people (are) falling down. That is (the) biggest mistake for living people and whom they are claiming: “We are learned people, we are experts, we are professors, we are scientists, we are academic people, we must know who is that Creator! We must bring that one that you are saying (to Him) ‘Creator’ under our microscope…” Or (they are saying:) “We must look first through telescopes”, but then they are saying: “We are just astonishing- which direction we must put our telescope? This direction, that direction? (Because there are) countless directions to bring that One through our telescopes first. Then, if we are catching that One, we must bring that One and to put (Him) under our microscope to look…” Haha, Subhanallah, so foolish people, no understanding and they are claiming (that) they are learned people, Alim… they are thinking that they know everything! That is their knowledge about the Creator. Their heads (are) big one, but nothing in it!

If a person (is) knowing about his Lord, his Creator, as much as (he is) knowing, (he is) getting much more respecting for Him. Therefore when (the) Prophet had been asked: “What is the most valuebale effort or work or study for a person to make as a servanthood to his Lord?” What it is, when they were asking (him), he was saying: “Al ‘ilmu bi-llah- to know about his Creator.” That means: to try to reach much more knowledge, that according to our knowledge of someone, of his perfection and power and glory we are taking much more respect. A servant or a simple employee, when (he is) getting in front of his director (he is) closing his buttons, yes. Not for everyone, but for his director (he is) taking much more respect, because (he is) knowing about him what he can do. And man also, according to his knowledge about his Creator, his Lord, (is) taking much more respect. Therefore two Rakaats from the Seal of Prophets, S.Muhammad sws, if put (on) one side of (a) balance and (on the) other side of (the) balance whole nations’ praying, two Rakaats from Rasulullah, (the) Seal of Prophets, (the) most beloved and most honoured one, (the weight of his) two Rakaats is getting (to be) much more, because no one can reach to his position and his knowledge about his Creator.

May Allah forgive me and forgive you and (grant His) blessing for the honour or of that most beloved and respected and honoured one, (the) most glorified one in (the) divine Presence despite of the Wahabis, Fatiha…It is not a prepared thing, but what they are sending we must speak on it. We don’t know, He knows…
