Maulana Sheikh NazimKnowledge of the heart is never lost


The first night of 142o according to the Islamic calendar just began at Maghreb. We are asking Allah Almighty to make this year good for Islam and Muslims everywhere on the whole earth, because Muslims are now in a very dangerous situation. Unexpected events have happened... no one could have imagined such a situation. And also in this year so many unexpected big, terrible and horrible events are going to come...

Dunya, the whole world, is changing day by day, because Dunya is running at full speed towards its destination, and for every creature there must be a destination. Without a destination Allah Almighty is not creating anything, even the smallest one walking or flying...

I am asking scientists and authorized people about a certain creature on earth: "What is its name? It must have a name." But our foolish and proud scholars don’t know- they are only proud ones- and they may say: "It is not written in our books." You scholars are claiming that you know about everything, and you sit on a three-person chair... But if I am asking: "What is that creature’s name?", you are saying: "We didn’t take a photograph of that creature or put it under a microsope yet, and we didn’t ask it yet ‘what is your name?’, because we are meeting for the first time now." And I am saying: "Ask that creature if it knows about you. Ask it: ‘Do you know who am I?’ And it may say: ‘Yes, you are from the Children of Adam a.s. !’ “

Every creature must know the deputy of Allah Almighty on earth... This is important. You have never heard such things before... Every creature must know Caliphatu’llah. They have been ordered to know him and also to be obedient and to be of benefit to him, because nothing is created without giving a benefit to mankind. Everything is created for man, and everything is helping man by its creation.

And before the creation of man, before the coming of the deputy of Allah Almighty, the creatures were looking and waiting for him, to be obdient to man and to help his descendants and give their best to them. Animals, plants... everything on earth, in earth, in the atmosphere, skies, space- everything is just created for you... Allahu akbar!
So that small creature also knows about you, because you have been created to be Sultan over them. And yet you are heedless of your real being, not making any research about yourself and the importance of being in existence. No, you only make enquiries and research into a few creatures, but you can’t enter the ocean of the countless beings. They are living everywhere, whether you can see them or not. Everywhere is full of creatures, and they are looking at you, but you can’t see them. And they know about you, and you don’t have a full knowledge about yourself...

An ignorant person may ask: "Does anyone know the names of the creatures?" And the creatures say: "Yes, Allah Almighty created Adam a.s. to be His deputy, Calipha on earth, saying: 'Wa ‘allama Adama’l asmaa kullaha' . Allah Almighty taught Adam the names of every creature that He created.” Adam a.s. knew their names fully. For example here in this room there are maybe one hundred people, and everyone has a name. Your common name is man, but individually you are Ahmad. So Adam knew the common names and also, one by one, every creature’s individual name...

That is a certain stage for mankind, and there are so many stages or levels for everyone. When someone is reaching there spiritually, there is an opening... What you put in your mind, even after a long time you may forget. Mind products quickly may be lost, forgotten. But what you have been granted by Allah Almighty through His most Respected Servant Rasul sws, what is coming to your soul, you never forget. Mind products are going to melt and finish, but not heart products; they are kept, and they belong to our souls. It is like a fish that is brought to you, and you take this fish and throw it back into the ocean, so that it may live there forever. But out of the ocean with you, it can’t live on...
Like that mind products may only be kept for a short time. You may learn something, know it, but then forget it again. But what you have been granted from Allah Almighty is never going to be forgotten...

It is a very dangerous happening for mankind. People claim to be learned and to know so many things. But they have also been given forgetfulness, which makes them to lose all of it. Everybody from mankind may forget. No one can say: "I am not forgetting anything", except the Awliya, the Saints, who are keeping knowledge through their hearts, not through their minds. Who is keeping knowledge in his mind, day by day, little by little, is going to lose it. “Afaatu’l ‘ilma an-nisyan”... the problem with knowledge is that anytime it can be forgotten- you are learning, but forgetfulness never lets that knowledge stay with you... But who keeps knowledge through his heart never forgets. I was with Grandsheikh for 4o years, and I never heard him say about anything: "I forgot." He was saying: "When I was born my heart was working, knowledge was in it."

Oh people, you must try, for this year particularly, to save yourself and your family from terrible and horrible events. Take care for them, and it will give you contentment. Don’t run after money. Money can never give you any insurance.

Therefore we are trying to say that holy word: "La ilaha ill’ Allah, la ilaha ill’ Allah, la ilaha ill’ Allah...", asking to put it into our heart by repeating it, because through his mind a person may lose it. But so many ignorant people are objecting to Tariqat people who say and repeat: "La ilaha ill’ Allah...". They are getting very angry because their teacher is Shaitan. And every Tariqat is asking to take that holy word from our minds to our hearts. And hearts never forget, so it is never going to be lost. But if you are not keeping Dhikr, you are going to forget after hours or days... Therefore Tariqat must be. It is helping people to transport their knowledge from their heads, their minds, to their hearts. It is a little bit difficult, but you must try to take away the difficulties. And the only way is to say: "La ilaha ill’ Allah..."- opening hearts...

Those square-head people never understand and they are fighting people, asking: "Why are you making Dhikr?" We are making Dhikr so the realities which belong to the Lord of the Heavens come from our mind to our heart. Then they are never going to be forgotten and we may always know them. That is the important point for Tariqats. But we have a saying, that if you put chocolate in front of a donkey, it will refuse it. But if you put straw, it will eat it. What shall we do, if people insist to be donkeys, only happy with straw?
We hope that throughout this year every day a new power will join Islam, to make our heads, our leaders rise up, and to make the heads, the leaders of the enemies of truth, enemies of Heavenly Beings, fall down. Ask from Allah day by day to show you and to give you... Ya Allah, grant us the Sultan of Shariat from Your Divine Presence on earth...

Fatiha.
