Maulana Sheikh NazimHajj-ul-akbar 1999: Labbaik, Allahumma, labbaik...


Hajjis are preparing themselves today to climb up the Mount of Arafat, and tomorrow, insha Allah, they are going to be in the Divine Presence, standing up and asking Allah Almighty to clean them of their sins, asking to be granted blessings from His endless Mercy Oceans.
Perhaps from the beginning until today there has never been such a crowded pilgrimage. Only this year it will happen, and it is important, because it is the last pilgrimage before the closing of the second millennium. Also it is Hajj-ul-Akbar, which is honoured seventy times more than an ordinary Hajj.

Grandsheikh said that every year those who have been granted an invitation for Hajj, pilgrimage, come from every direction on earth. On the Day of Arafat they are saying: "Labbaik, Allahumma, labbaik...", which means: "Oh, our Lord, with our whole being, physical and spiritual, we are running to You, running after Your call, as You are calling us to come for Hajj, to visit Your Holy House, the House of the Lord. We are running to You with all our humbleness...labbaik...just running to You. We are leaving everything and we are following Your call...labbaik, Allahumma, labbaik, labbaika, la sharika laka, labbaik...No one can be a partner to You. We have left everyone who is claiming to be Your partner. We are not hearing, not listening to them, we are not accepting their commands. We live only for You, we are running to You...We are weak servants, coming from the nation of Your true servant...labbaik, Allahumma, labbaik, labbaika la sharika laka, labbaik, inna’l hamda, wa ni’amata, laka wa’l mulk, la sharika’lak..." Allahu akbar! "Inna’l hamda...all glorifying, praising, absolute thanks, that may be offered to You by Your servants, it is for You, only for You...wa ni’amata...what You are granting to us, Your servants, from every kind of Niamat, favours, and blessings, is from You only...laka wa'l mulk...Mulk, everything in existence including ourselves, belongs to You...la sharika’lak..."
No one can say for even one spot or one atom, or less than an atom, that it belongs to him. If anyone may say: "That atom belongs to me", Allah may tell him: "Take that smallest part that belongs to you, and go away!" Or if anyone was saying: "That gigantic galaxy there is for me," the Lord may tell him: "Take it and go away, get out of My Territory!" And to whoever may say this or that belongs to them, He may tell them to take it and go away... Allahu akbar, jalla jalaluhu...

So tomorrow, when people are crowding on Hajj, calling to their Lord, the Veils of Greatness will open and Allah Almighty will look at them, with a look which is like just one ray of the sun, or even less than that, coming and cleaning...cleaning...cleaning...until they are completely clean. This mercy is coming and covering people. Grandsheikh said that when it is Hajj-ul-Akbar, Grand Hajj, which means that the Day of Arafat is on a Friday, and Allah Almighty is looking to His servants, that grant is coming to them seventy times, and therefore Hajj-ul-Akbar is equal to seventy Hajjs.

Wahabi people are not accepting this. There is no Hajj-ul-Akbar for them. So we are taking the blessings, and they are leaving them... Tomorrow is going to be that day, insha Allahu Rahman.

There is one problem, or one point, that we may speak about: I have heard that the Wahabi government and Wahabi people are shaking now, because of the big crowds of Hujjaj in Mekka-i-Mukarrama. They are shaking, because they are counting over six million people now, but Allah knows; perhaps there are seven million or more... The Wahabi School is a materialist current, never accepting any spirituality in Islam. They are materialist people, growing in Islam, who are thinking and writing about everything with their materialistic views, counting and balancing everything.

It was after the Second World War, 1946, and that year was also Hajj-ul-Akbar, the first one after the peace, that I was there with our Grandsheikh. Because of the war not too many people could come- everywhere was closed. I remember that more than two million people were there, and at that time there were still the old buildings in Mekka-i-Mukarrama and Medina-i-Munawwara that the Ottomans had built. I remember that when we prayed our last Juma prayer in the Haram of Mekka, sharafaha Allah, at least one million people, maybe more, were praying there, and according to the size of the area of the Haram-ul-Sharif, only one hundred and fifty thousand people could enter it, no more. I prayed inside the Harram, and yet around the Kaaba there were empty places for some people...I was there...

These Wahabis are saying that they must help the people, and really they are claiming that they must help Allah... Astaghfirullah...making an extention of Mekka-i-Mukarrama for people to take their rest in, to enter it freely, to do Tawaf freely, to pray freely, with no crowding of people. They began... But as much as they were making extentions, much more crowds were coming...

And I went year after year- 1980 was the last Hajj for me, that my physical being was there also- and I could never reach to do the Juma prayer inside those buildings. Always I was outside, putting something on the street and praying on it...

And now that they have made it so big they are realising: "Oh, we have destroyed Mekka, but people are still not able to pray comfortably in the Harram..." And they also destroyed Medina-i-Munawwara, yet it is not big enough for people.

So Shaitan was teaching them, saying: "Make contingents, limits." That means they are now doing something else that is not Rahmani, but Shaitani, because it is Shaitan who teaches them to make limits: "Say, for example, to Turks that only 9o.ooo may come. And people want to come again, but they may go on Hajj only twice; no, only give permission to enter the kingdom once, only to whoever is coming to Hijaz for the first time. For Syrians: 5o.ooo. Pakistanis...no need for those people...every year they are coming... 5oo.ooo, doesn’t matter. Iranians, they are fighters, trouble-makers, make it 4o.ooo for them. Egyptians...we can’t do anything for them...2oo.ooo." This is all shaitanic teachings. Now this year they have made another limit. Even after taking the visa and permission from the Saudi consulate to come, they said to a Grandmufti that he has to bring a new identity card also to be able to enter the kingdom...

And they made so many tunnels under the mountains in Saudia, ways to reach Mina and then Arafat... The more they are trying to do something, the more they are becoming ‘majnun’, crazy, all of them. And it would be so simple: Don’t touch anything. It is an invitation from Allah Almighty to the people. Whoever He is asking to come and visit His Holy House He is carrying responsibility for His visitors, not you! But they are like rocks, their heads are like rocks, never understanding anything about spirituality. That is the reason why the government is shaking now: "What shall we do?"... Leave people free! Mekka and Medina are for all the Muslims, why are you putting such foolish limits on people? Leave them to come and visit. If they were leaving them, even sixty million people could come easily because Angels would put roads under them, ways to move, to go and come smoothly...

I have heard that they have also destroyed everything inside the Harram-ul-Sharif to make Tawaf easy, but that now people make Tawaf outside, in big circles. What is that?

I was there in 1946, and at both ends of Safa and Marwa there were shops, and also camels passing on the way and cars and people...going like this, coming like that...crossing the way, and we, the Hajjis, we were going like this...making Sai and passing so easily...two million people and more... Now, if they are able to, they are going to make seven floors for people, but even if they make seventy floors, people won’t be able to make their Sai as freely as we were making it. And sometimes we were running into the camels, because they were getting up on the way, and it was at that place that we had to run...and we were running and there were cars with donkeys passing, and we couldn't continue...but we were so happy, making Sai. Now, Subhanallah... Take your hands from the Harram-u-Sharif! Leave the Harram to Allah, and Medina-i-Munawwara to Rasul sws...

They are shaking now: "How we can be able to control the situation?" Leave it, there is another controller there, Muhafiz-u-Mekka...it is not an ordinary place. They think it is an ordinary place, because there is no spirituality with them. Everything they are counting...making an account...

And tomorrow, insha Allah, should be that biggest Hajj which closes this century, and another opening is coming, insha Allah. We have been informed that Sahib-u-Zaman, Sayidina Mehdi a.s., and his Khulafa and 12.ooo Awliya, who all have the power to reach there in a blink of an eye, should be there tomorrow...and it should be a strong Munajat, Dua, prayer, which will change everything this year, insha Allah, we hope...

It is a special Hajj...and for whoever has been prevented from reaching it this year and they had prepared themselves, but the government told them: "No way for you", Allah Almighty is sending Angels on their behalf. Also for common people who said: "If only we could reach Arafat", and they were not able to, Allah is also creating Angels to be on Arafat on their behalf, to reach those favours from Allah Almighty.
Tomorrow you must try to complete 1000 Ikhlas-u-Sharif; 1ooo La ilaha ill’Allah; 1000 Salawat; 100 La ilaha ill’Allah, wahdahu la sharika’lah, lahu’l mulku wa lahu’l hamdu, yuhyi wa yumit, wa Huwa ‘ala kulli shayin Qadir; 100 La haula wa la quwatta illa bi’llahi’l ‘Aliyu’l ‘Azim, and at every prayer to make the Tekbir: ‘Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, la ilaha ill’Allah, wa Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar wa li’llahi’l hamd.’

May Allah send His Divine Servants to take away everything that is against Islam. May He send His lions on jackals, wolves, foxen, bears, snakes and scorpions, to kill them and take them away. I am asking: "O our Lord, no doubt You have lions, and even one is enough... You send Angels to Your most Beloved Servant Muhammad sws on the days of Uhud and Badr, and even one Angel was enough to take away the whole army of Mushriks; but You sent thousands of them, so that the Muqmins were looking and seeing Angels among them and they got the certainty that they would be victorious. Therefore even one lion is enough, we know, more than enough, but we are asking for Your Lions to come and destroy the sultanate of Shaitan and take away the shaitanic kingdom on earth!"

If He is asking to put one billion people in this place here, He can do it, and everyone may come and go freely. One billion people may be in this small place. He can do it; you must believe in Allah, must believe in His endless power and ability, capacity. There are endless possibilities for Him only, the Almighty... Why are you trying to do something? As much as you are doing these wrong actions, more difficulties are coming, more troubles and crises.

It was so easy the first and second times on Hajj... until they began to destroy everything... old houses, at that time there were no concrete buildings at all... and they destroyed every historic building, all of them. And they made huge concrete buildings, so that people are no longer able to breathe spirituality in Mekka-i-Mukarrama and Medina-i-Munawwara. People’s feelings have become confused, and they are saying: "Are we in New York or in San Francisco? In Los Angeles, Paris, Rome? Where are we?"

Insha Allah, when Mehdi a.s. is coming, in one night only, all those concrete buildings should be thrown away... not into the Red Sea, because it is not too deep. I am ordering them to be thrown into the Indian Ocean- never filling up. There is no need for even one concrete stone. And on the second night there should come back the same buildings that were destroyed...

That is Irada, will-power. When someone is given that will-power, he may say: “Be,” and it is going to be; ‘Kun, fa yakun’. Allah Almighty is saying: "Oh My servant, be obedient to Me, and I will make you of My Staff, Rabbani, and I will give you the power and authority to say for something: “Be”, and it will be..."

Therefore if he orders those buildings to be taken away, in one night they will be finished, and the second night, when he is ordering to be brought back the same buildings as were destroyed before in Mekka-i-Mukarrama and Medina-i-Munawwara, it will be as it was. People will run smoothly, make Tawaf smoothly, and move smoothly to Mina and Arafat, insha Allah... Fatiha.
