We must be grateful- we are not in a war, we are healthy, and we have so many things, while so many people are suffering.
They asked me how I can provide for so many people every day, and I am not
working. I said: 'With Bismillahi-r-Rahmani-r-Rahim'. May Allah not take the
Besmela out of our hearts! Who doesn't use the Besmela cannot save himself
from Bela, and the biggest Bela is to forget to say
'Bismillahi-r-Rahmani-r-Rahim'. May Allah not make us to forget it.
Grandsheikh was saying: 'All ways are closed except one, and that is to say
'Bismillahi-r-Rahmani-r-Rahim' with every movement.' If not, nothing works.
B.r.r. is the only key for all mankind, it has a special Tajalli. Don't fear
and keep saying it all the time. It is the most important thing to be able
to say: 'Bismillahi-r-Rahmani-Rahim'. Every locked door opens with B.r.r.
In the Night of Ascension, the Miraj, Gibrail a.s. was accompanying the
Prophet sws. There was a place, a makam, where there was a gate, a door, so
magnificient, that it cannot be measured. And the Prophet was overwhelmed.
And even he saw with his spiritual vision, but he asked the archangel: 'To
where does it open?' From Allah's wisdom the Tajallis over that gate, igts
Tajalli, colours and majesty, change all the time. It is another kind of
door, a door belonging to the spiritual world. The Tajalli over that door is
not material; it changes constantly up to eternity. And its beauties add one
over the other. May Allah open to us such a door! It is like entering a
palace; there are private doors that belong to the Sultan. You have to wait
in front of that door, and maybe it never opens for you, only for the King.
You can enter Windsor-Castle, but there is a part, which you are not allowed
to enter.
So the Prophet saw that door and on it a lock. It is not a lock like we
know, t is a magnificient lock also. Colours enter from it like flashes,
like lightening. The Prophet asked in his heart to see what was behind that
door and he asked Gibrail a.s.: 'How can we pen that door?' And it is a
special door, not for everyone. Therefore the angel said: 'Yes, you can see
what is behind, because everything was created for you.' 'I like to', said
the Prophet, 'but where is the key?' 'The key has already been given to
you', said the angel. The Prophet knew, but from the Adab that a servant of
Allah has with his Lord, he was waiting for the answer to come from the
angel to him. A servant does not just enter the Presence of the Sultan, so
even the Prophet knew how to enter, but he was waiting for the Divine
Permission. The angel said: 'The key is to say
Bismillahi-r-Rahmani-r-Rahim.' When the Prophet said these words, the lock
opened and the magnificient door, and he saw visions that are indescribable,
not to be spoken of by any tongue. Countless visions of the divine Sultanate
full of heybet and beauty.Can one count the rays of the sun? And who could
approach the sun itself.Allah's Greatness is such, that no one can be able
to approach His Sultanate.
What did the Prophet see behind the door? He saw four springs of endless
beauty. From where they spring? He saw them spring from a writing-
Bismillahi-r-Rahmani-Rahim, and no one can see to where they flow. The
Besmela contains three holy Names of Allah, and who says it, will drink from
these four fountains. The people of Paradise drink from them; water, milk,
honey and wine flow from them through each single Paradise. No one will
suffer from thirst. Also who can read the Fatiha in one breath will drink
from those fountains in that makam. We can only speak about some of the
blessings that the Besmela contains. Who respects the Besmela, will get
honour, and neither in Dunya nor in Barzakh or on the Day of Judgment will
he have problems.
There was one woman who used to say Bismillahi-r-Rahmani-r-Rahim, no matter,
what she did. Her husband was getting annoyed and he asked her why she was
saying that all the time. She answered: 'When I am saying it, Allah is
looking after me, providing for me, and everything is made easy for me.' He
wanted to test her and later on he gave her some money, askig her to hide it
and keep it for him. She took the money with Bismillahi-r-Rahmani-r-Rahim
and put it, B.r.r., in a box, which she hid, B.r.r., in a special place. The
man, who knew the place, went later on, took the money out secretly and hid
it in a well. After some time the man said to his wife: 'O my wife, I need
the money that I gave to you to keep. Please bring it to me.' His wife went
and opened the box, B.r.r. She put her hand inside, B.r.r., and took the
money out, which was dripping with water. She was surprised. She brought the
money to him and he was ashamed. She asked him: 'What did you do with the
money? Because I hid it in that box in that place, and it could never get
wet.' He kissed her hand and said: 'O my wife, may Allah be pleased with
you, you made me ashamed, you taught me the value of the Besmela.' He wanted
to test her, and because she said the Besmela, the angel connected with the
Besmela took the money out of the well and brought it to her.
This is Haqq! No matter where he would have hidden the money, the angels
would have brought it back. O Allah, don't take the Besmela from our tongues
and out of our hearts!
