Pictures of Maulana Sheikh NazimWhat Happens in the Grave

A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani ‘r-rajieem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem. HasbunAllahu wa ni`ma ’l-wakeel ni`ma ’l-mawla wa ni`man nasir. Ghufraanaka Rabbana wa ilayka ’l-maseer. Fatihah.

(Mureed: This is from the Basque country. You told the ladies who were here from the Basque country to make an axe handle. They made this for you. This is a special wood, from a tree called Bokh.)

(Mawlana Shaykh Nazim waves the axe handle, laughing.)

From which country?

(Basque country).



On the Pyrenees? On the Mediterranean side?

(Yes, near the Pyrenees on the Atlantic side, the other side.)

Hey! (Mawlana Shaykh Nazim raises axe handle, laughing). Shukran, shukran.

(…trembles.. the hand is like this). He is a very, very angry person. Anger makes this happen. He must make his heart wider to carry people, something is affecting him and he is becoming like this. He may say Yaa Haleem 100 times.

(Mawlana Shaykh Nazim prays for a baby; recites Surat al-Fatihah.)

Ameen, ameen, ameen. RabbunAllah, HasbunAllah. RabbunAllah, HasbunAllah, RabbunAllah. HasbunAllah wa ni`mal-wakeel, ni`ma ’l-mawla wa ni`ma ’n-naseer. Ghufraanaka Rabbanaa wa ilayka ’l-maseer.


When we will be buried in our graves, two angels will come and their voices are like thunder. At that time our soul will come back to our bodies and then two angels will say, “O Men! O Women! Who is your Lord?” The true answer to say is “Allah!”

“Who is your Prophet?”

“Sayyidina Muhammad (s).”

“Which book have you been reciting in your life, what is the holy book that has been sent from the Heavens to Sayyidina Muhammad (s)?”

“Qur’an al-Kareem.”

Then they will ask, “Where did you direct yourself when you prayed?”

Say, “To the Ka`aba, the House of the Lord.”

Every time they ask and you answer, an answer from the Heavens will confirm, “Yes, he said the truth.”

Then from around you there is fire. From one side comes your praise that keeps you from the Fire, then from the other side your fasting protects you. Then from covering your head, if you were able to go to Hijaaz (for Hajj), that protects you from the Fire. Then from covering your feet, your charity keeps you. Then the Fire gets away, and an order comes from the Heavens, “Open his grave, don’t leave him in his place. Spread a garden of Paradise where he or she may remain until the Day of Resurrection, looking at Paradise and at the Seal of Prophets (s)!

That is coming. Therefore, we must say, “RabunAllah, HasbunAllah.” Men and women, keep your honor; that is important. It is going to be in that place, some people are getting 60 yards, some 100 yards, such a big Paradise garden, Firdaws. Therefore, the Prophet (s) said, “O My Nation! Don’t think the grave is only as you see it, no. Some of them are a garden of Paradise and some of them are a prison full of fire!”

May Allah protect everyone to not fall into Hellfire! We hope all new ones who accept Islam are accepting to be the Lord’s servants. Keep your servanthood, and ladies keep your honor. Now people have lost it. The whole world is saying we are reaching the top of civilization, but really they are falling down, only running after material aspects. No one, or very few exceptions, are asking for heavenly treasures and for Paradise. Yes, everyone is looking for his last day, last hour, last moment. Now people’s lives are coming down to perhaps 60 years and they are taken away. You may live to 90 years, I am waiting now for when I am going up! Inshaa-Allah, with pure faith it will make me happy here and Hereafter, (and for) all of you.

Even if I am living until 100 years, an end will come. Noah (a) lived a thousand years and he was surprised when Azra`eel (a) came to take his pure soul. He said, “So quickly one thousand years have finished?” Instead of one thousand, one-hundred thousand years will finish, or in a million or billion years an end will come, a trillions, quadrillion, pentillion years, an end is coming! We are asking for Eternity, Eternity, Eternity! Don’t be cheated by Shaytan’s tricks or fall into its traps! We are asking for Eternity, a never-ending eternal life with our Lord’s Holy Presence! Don’t be cheated by dunya!

I was thinking that I was like this little boy, and now I see death is coming to take me. Some of them are going up, some of them are thrown down. Keep yourself! Keep your faith! Keep your heavenly orders, for our Lord to be pleased with us! Try to make Him pleased with you: that and nothing else will be a never-ending pleasure for you!

You are entering into Paradise. Everyone is entering Paradise, for example in this space. On the second day it is becoming twice (the size) and on the third day, three times more. On the fourth day, four times bigger. Allah, the Lord of the Heavens, is always granting you real life, you see. Here (it is). (Mawlana Shaykh Nazim brushes his hands together).

May Allah forgive us. (May there be) happy days for you and strong imaan, in order to be in safety here and Hereafter. Keep holy orders and you will be happy and have a sweet life here, and in the Eternal life.
