“We believe that royal families are selected people. Prophets are selected, and royal families have also been selected by the Lord to be the heads of nations. We respect all royal families. We cannot accept that royal families, who have been selected by the Lord, should be the same as people who have been elected by other people.”-Shaykh al-Akbar Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Adil al-Haqqani

Q. I have read and heard your statements regarding it being illegal according to classical Islamic textual rulings to declare autonomous “jihad” against non-Muslims in the West, as Al Qaeda and other groups have called for over the past decade, in the absence of an Imam, a Caliph. However, I noticed, you also reject Hizb at-Tahrir’s call for a new orthodox Khalifa. You additionally reject both Democracy, Republic states, as well as Communism, Zionism,”Islamicism” and even the doctrine of the Iranian Islamic Revolution, Wiliyat…

Jesus and the Leper

27 Jan

Darvish

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

“It is related that Jesus (on him be peace) passed by a blind man who was a leper and lame of both feet because of paralysis, and his flesh was consumed by leprosy, and he was saying: ‘Praise be to God who has kept me in good health and saved me from many things which have befallen others of his creatures.’ Then Jesus said to him: ‘O thou friend, from what kind of affliction do I see that you are free ‘ ; and he replied : ‘ O spirit of God, I am better than those in whose heart God has not put anything of his knowledge and his grace.’ And Jesus said : ‘You have spoken truly. Stretch forth your hand,’ and he stretched forth his hand and became of perfect health both as to his body and his appearance, for God had taken away all his sickness. So he accompanied Jesus and worshipped with him.”

“He (s) is the Light of the Universe!

He (s) is the Light of Heavens and Earth!
He (s) is the Light of Lights!
He (s) is the Heavenly Light!
He (s) is the Heavenly Power that when Allah created his Light,
He put it in Bahr al-Qudra!
He put it in the Ocean of Power,
Al-Qadir! Al-Muqtadir put Muhammad (s) there.
And that Light was turning and turning.

Go and read ibn `Asakir’s (r) hadith about that Light of Muhammad (s)! In the Musannaf of `Abdur-Razzaq, it is explained in detail why that Light was turning.

Why was the Prophet (s) turning, turning in Bahr al-Qudra? That Light of the Prophet (s) was turning in Bahr al-Qudra and producing energy as he turned, and turned and turned, from that Light Allah created Creation, turning and turning, producing energy, and from that turning Allah (swt) made the Big Bang.”

Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem.

“Az-Zuhri: Anas bin Malik said, that once a domestic sheep was milked for Allah’s Apostle while he was in the house of Anas bin Malik. The milk was mixed with water drawn from the well in Anas’s house. A tumbler of it was presented to Allah’s Apostle who drank from it. Then Abu Bakr was sitting on his left side and a bedouin on his right side. When the Prophet removed the tumbler from his mouth, ‘Umar was afraid that the Prophet might give it to the bedouin, so he said. “O Allah’s Apostle! Give it to Abu Bakr who is sitting by your side.” But the Prophet gave it to the bedouin, who was to his right and said, “You should start with the one on your right side.”

Unseen Essence

24 Jan

sufireflections

There is a part of ourselves that has not even been touched by the body

Nor the mind

The heart from time to time catches breezes of that essence

That wireless dimension of self on hold 

until we decide to pursue it. Connect.

Meanwhile we are heavily pursued in a different game. 

Born into a fragment of time called the world

A maze or puzzle, A prison built over a garden

Many labels and veils designed for us to shackle on

Until we awaken and believe we can unlock these codes

That the keys are embedded in our path to true self

Above the fray of deceitful doctrines

Below the surface of egoistic tussling

Within the center of the heart expanding

throughout the hum of the soul’s remembrance

A Familiar fragrance that the whole of you will know

Literacy here has nothing to do with the words of the world. 

But everything to…

Meditations on Praise 3

24 Jan

sufireflections

786

When heart is conscious of Praise
It begins to fill through and through
Like Light inside lantern
Praise energy does it’s work

Add breath! oxygenate Light!
To bring its niche aglow
Though territories within the body
Veins and capillaries, tracing through

Praised be the Creator !
For granting containers that taste
The nourishing nectar of Praise
With a consciousness rising to surface

Drink to your fill my friends!
A sip that engages all senses
That Live beyond confines of body
Hearing, Sight, Feeling, Smell and Taste!

These containers are meant for service
Tip forth in freedom of offering
Fresh visions result of this consciousness
Merging with circles of humanity

Make every atom our lens!
Coming back and forth from the fountain
Help us disappear in appearance
So that wisdom and guidance is quickened!

Ya Muhammad!
Your name means Praised!
Yet you’re hidden by density of men!
Ask that we…
