Maulana Sheikh NazimTHE POWER OF THE SHEIKH surrounds and ENCOMPASSES THE WHOLE WORLD


Allah Almighty is ordering His servants to follow the steps of His friends, and to be with
them. Therefore we should be like neighbours to blessed people with our physical
body. Then we may be closer through our hearts.

If a pipe does not connect to a tap there will be no water from the tap. Spring water
may reach to you through pipes. You must have pipes so that the tap can give water.
Likewise all the Prophets, and Seyyidina Mohammed (sal) are carrying heavenly
streams and mercy to our hearts. Therefore we must always keep connection to their
Holy and pure hearts, in order to recieve wisdom from heavens. You may up reach to
them and drink from their grand mercy streams.

Without the saints ( Awliya ), it is not possible to reach to this. You simply cannot reach
to it. Allah Almighty made the Awliya to be His mercy springs. The one who reaches to
them is going to be alive and to be a real living person. Those who is reach to Awliya,
will reach to ever lasting life. How can we reach to Allah? This is so difficult. But to
reach to His representative, is to be with Allah.

If a person does not reach to the Awliya, it is difficult to reach to blessings. There are
common blessings which reach everyone, to even unbelievers, if not they wouldn’t
exist. But if you want to get much closer, you need another kind of blessing. The
person who is heedless looses his expensive life and wastes his precious time. As for
an authorized person, it is not important for him outwardly, but in reality, he is always
with his Sheikh. He has a kind of telephone to his Sheikh, to see what news he may
benefit from. This has nothing to do with our own will, but it is the will of the Sheikh, who
is taking from the presence of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sal). The Sheikh is always
with the presence of the Prophet Muhammad (sal) whose reality is always with Allah
(without there being any direction or place for this).

The servant who is asking to reach to the Divine Presence of Allah Almighty, of the
Prophet Muhammad (sal) and of the Sheikh, must always keep his observation
(Muraqaba - means attentive observation, or watchfulness ), on the Sheikh. You should
always observe your sheikh, as he is always looking after you. He never leaves you.
To observe means to know, that the sheikh is always with you, and that he is always
watching you. The Murid is never alone.

Say, “Ya Allah,” “Don’t leave me alone with my ego.” When the Murid is not with his
Sheikh, he will be with his ego, and with shaitan, and the ego has millions of tricks to
play on you. When the Murid keeps observation of the Sheikh (for one minute, a while,
or as much as he can do), the sheikh will be with him, and in every situation, he will
support him. The observation brings the support (Medad). If you are cutting off, then
the Sheikh’s support cuts off.

He supports the one who is walking on the way to Allah (as a car fills up its tank at a
petrol station, before moving on). A real authorized person, has such a station to make
you to reach to Allah Almighty. He is also taking from the presence of his Sheikh, who is
taking from the presence of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sal), who receives from the
presence of Allah Almighty. If you cut this connection off, you will be left alone, and be
like a tape recorder with finished batteries. Instead if you have support through a
cable, it will never cut off, or become less. Always it will continue and go on.

For how long do you want to stay with your ego? To observe the Sheikh is one of the
most important things, so that you can always be with the Sheikh, and so that you may
be able reach to the presence of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sal). Then you will be
able to observe the Prophet Muhammad (sal), and you may see that the eye of the
Prophet Muhammad (sal) is looking at you, and that you come to know the meaning of
the Quranic verse, which says that the Holy Prophet (sal) is among you. He is not
absent. If there is no observation (Muraqaba), you will never see or feel anything.

Muraqaba makes the servant to hear things from the Sheikh, and he will see and watch
events and things also. Then you may see the Reality of the Sheikh, whose power is
surrounding the whole world (if he is a true one!). There are no borders. No. Not if the
responsibility has been given to him, officially, by the Holy Prophet (sal). His power is
always present, in every place, on the land and in the Oceans. Wherever you go he is
present.

When you have a good connection, at first you will hear, (like a kind of Divine telephone
to the Sheikh) and he will show you the way by what he tells you. After this, when the
Murid becomes higher in his Maqam (station), he will begin to see also the Sheikh who
is directing him with words. This is the highest level (from the Muraqaba of the Murid),
until he climbs up to the observation of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sal), whom he will
first hear, until he gets higher and then, he will see the Prophet Muhammad (sal).

Of this state the greatest of the Holy ones used to say, “If we are not looking at the Holy
Prophet Muhammad (sal) even for the blink of an eye, and if he is cut off from being
directly in front of us, we would not count ourselves as being Muslims anymore.” This is
because if a man is with his ego he is not a believer (no Iman). Until he is with Allah
Almighty, the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sal) and the other Prophets, he will be cut off,
and there will be nothing else to serve accept his ego. He would have made himself to
be a servant of his ego until they will say of him. “Did you see the one who made his
own ego to be his God “ (Al Quran). This person will no longer separate between what
is allowed or forbidden. He will say, “I am free, and that which I want to do, I will do.”

Therefore, the observation of the Sheikh, by the Murid, is the most important thing, for
his improvement on the way and if not, his diesel or petrol will finish, and he will stand
on the way without moving. When he insists that he doesn’t want to think about his
Sheikh, he will be left there.

These are some sensitive points which Shaitan and his supporters have interfered with,
to cheat the ones who are on the way. They say that it is making partners with Allah
(shirk) when one observes the Sheikh. It cannot be and is not shirk or unbelief (kufar).
It is only that these people have no understanding about how to obtain a ‘true state’.
Muraqaba is for one on the way, and it is to be done always, until he reaches to the
Divine Presence. Then he will be from one of those who have reached, and there will
be nothing left in him of the worries of the world or of the hereafter. He will be in
permanency.

This is a very precise and heavy lecture, and no one else in this time from the
authorized people may speak about this, except our Grandsheik’s representative.
Tariqat is to have adab ( good manners), and is for guiding people to the highest level
of adab. Becoming a true Murid, means being an accepted one, in the Prophet
Muhammad’s (sal) presence, and in the Divine Presence. “O Allah, give Your most
Beloved servant more Majesty and Honour.” Who does not making zikr has no lights,
and the person who has no lights is blind. So the veils cannot be taken away.
