Advice is the way of Ahlussunnah wal Jama’ah. Ahlussunnah wal-Jamaat. Sayyidna Muhammad (pbuh) is living as long as the message is living. You need a guide to reach the presence of the Prophet (pbuh). If you follow one hadeeth correctly, it is enough for you for your whole life. Quran: “Say to them, if you love Allah, follow me…

Excerpt from Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani (qs) Subha! SubhanAllah!

“When Allah(swt) said, if you love Me, follow Muhammad(saw) Allah will love you is that for Sahaba or for whole Ummah? when Allah revealed that to Sahaba what did they do? they followed the Prophet (saw).

“Allah honored Sahaba. No one can be like them,to  be with the Prophet (saw). But that does not mean, as the “Ayah’ says, to follow the Prophet (saw), we are under that order to follow the Prophet (saw). To follow him in what. the reality of following is to see him. else you are blind. how are you going to follow.

Sahaba heard the Prophet (saw). Heard his voice. We did not hear the Prophet (saw). They heard his voice and were attracted, we must reach that reality in our ‘Hearts’.

These voices that come with inspiration ‘ilham’, to follow the Prophet (saw). Are we seeing the Prophet (saw)? no. Then what happened? that means there is a block there.

In the heavenly pipe from the Prophet (saw)’s heart to whole Ummah’s heart. there is a connection. But it is blocked somewhere.

Who can rebuild it? Those who are there. Those who reached the Prophet (saw). From the shuyookh that Islamic history is full of them. They are the inheritors of the Prophet (saw). They guide the Ummah to reach the Prophet (saw).

And when you reach that light of the Prophet (saw), from it the whole universe, the whole creation is created, and you will be connecting yourself with everyone. You will be connecting yourself with the realigty of the Prophet (s). you will be connecting yourslef with realities of all Prophets. You will be connecting yourself with all Sahaba, their realities. You will be connecting with all realities of all Awliyaullah.

Today I am sitting downstairs and he sent me a message, “group chat”

one message he pressed the button and it went might be to 100s. one message went to hundreds. the other sent message it might be went to other hundreds. the other this. We sent Eid Mubarak to 30,000 with one button with our email list.

google, how many can they send in one button. engineer? [one billion] one in one minute reach everyone. one button.

the Prophet (saw) doesn’t need buttons. Anyone whose email is open the Prophet (saw) will reach him immediately. He will reach the whole humanity. because they are created from his Light. All creation is created from the Light of the Prophet (saw).

Excuse me, O Prophet, if I didn’ describe as you should be, your beauty cannot be described.

One atom of Your beauty came from Allah to Yusuf and made him the most beautiful person on earth. From one atom of his Light. What if 2 atoms, 3 atoms, millions and billions of atoms. that is why the meaning of ‘w`alamoo anna feekum rasoolullah’. Now that the Prophet (saw) is in you, among you with you.

and on other side you order us ya Allah to follow Muhammad(saw). He is in you, among you between you follow him and catch him.

I give an oath verily that if the Pen would have begun to write from beginning to end it would never give the Prophet’s beauty. Wallahi if the Grave of the Prophet (saw) wil blossom the Light will shine and the moon will disappear.

W’Allahi if all intelligent people and scholars and poets would have tried to write your description they would not have been able to write anything about what you are. ya Muhammad. that is why The Holy Prophet(saw) said, Allah sent me to perfect the Ummah. ‘innamaa bu`ithtu li utammimu makaarim al-akhlaaq’. I have been sent to complete the connection with me, with moral excellence in order to perfect everyone and complete him perfectly. That is why in his life he was never `aboos, never grouchy nor does he ever put down anyone nor show any frown in his face and never spoke something except that you get reward from it.

That means he never spoke about dunya. He was advising and urging his Sahaba to do everything for Akhira. They have to live in dunya and they can do what they want to do in dunya but to do more for Akhira. As Sayyidina ‘Ali (r) said, go the other way more towards Akhira.

`amal li-dunyaaka ka-annaka ta`ayshu abadan wa `amal li akhiratika ka annaka tamootu ghadan’.Work for your life as if you are going to live forever and work for the next life as if you are gong to die tomorrow.That mean you don’t care about this life.

You dont know if you stay in dunya or not. You must try more and more for Akhira. Then the connection between you and the Prophet (saw) will move move move until you connect.

‘kaana Rasoolullahi (saw)’ from his description, ‘yuhibba at-tayammum fee kulli umoorihi’. The Prophet (saw) likes to do the “right” way from everything. And that means we are rightists, and not leftists in the political meaning. He used to love halwa, sweets and honey, and kutha, like cucumbers, they are small cucumbers in middle east, something similar to that but not cucumbers .and he used to mix with dates. he used to wear a ring in his right hand written on it Muhammad Rasoolullah.

We stop here and ask Allah to keep us as Ahl as-Sunnah wa ‘l-Jama’ah and to keep being guided by his message to reach his presence. wa min Allah at-tawfeeq bi hurmati ‘l-Fatiha

On This day I have completed your Religion

11 Oct


Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabban(q) – “When the ayah came by Allah(swt): ‘alyawm akmaltu deenakum wa atmamtu `alaykum ni`amatee wa radeetu lakum al-Islama deena. On this Day I have completed your religion and I have completed My Favors on you [not I will complete but I have completed it already. By that ayah Allah has completed Islam and made it a perfect moon, no more and no less. Therefore don’t accept anyone to come and tell you we have to renovate or reform Islam or westernize Islam or americanize Islam. Islam is a complete religion and accepted by Allah(swt)”

Fiqh and Good Manners

17 Jun
Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani
Sohba/Discourse – Fenton, MI USA
One the day of judgement every Muslim will be purified by Sayyidna Muhammad (pbuh). He will teach the umma the whole Quran. He will teach them the wisdom. A hadeeth which will demonstrate that not everything can be understood only literally. Manners are important. Fiqh and manners are two important sciences to learn. One without the other is not sufficient.

When Allah Loves You Everything Opens

When Allah Loves You Everything Opens
Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani
Nasheed and sallawat followed by suhbah teaching of Shaykh Hisham Kabbani.
Our GPS is Ilahm (inspiration to the heart). When Allah loves you everything opens. How do we reach for Allah to love us. How to open the 2 locks for the divine presence?
Sohba/Discourse – Singapore Singapore

from my notes-

Every person has GPS. Our GPs is Ilham(inspiration to the heart)

We are like at the beginning of a Highway.If you exit Highway, you fall into trouble.

Allah(swt) put us on the Highway, and there are too many exits on it. If we follow shaytan, we might take and exit, and have to find our way back again.

If we keep following the HighWay without exiting, we will come to all kinds of beautiful things.

The Highway is “Siratul Mustaqeem”.

If you stay on it you will reach Paradise.You are less than two feet to Paradise.

When Allah(swt) Loves you everything opens for you.
Allah Loves you through Voluntary Worship.

In our life there are two keys.

How to get Main Lock to open.

Through two things- Dhikrullah and Salawat on Prophet(saw).
How to Obey Allah(swt)-make Salawat on Prophet(saw).
One of the Main Keys to get the Love of Allah(swt) is Salawat on Prophet(saw).
Salawat on Prophet, together with Dhikrullah.

Allah(swt) is always helping us to keep on The Highway.

Every Muslim is going to be safe, but those who keep diligently on “Siratul Mustaqeem” will be on higher level.

You can dive into The Ocean of Prophet(saw).

To reach the end of “Siratul Mustaqeem”, you need Salawat and Dhikrullah.

Some Mureeds make more than 20,000 Salawat a day. There was one Mureed, who made Million Salawat a day. He would go to the beach, after Fajr Prayers, and then run his hand around his 200 bead tasbih, counting each round as 200. Mawlana Says, it is the Pure Intention that matters. If you sincerely believe that you have done 200 Salawat in one round, then it will be so. It all depends on sincerity.

Grand Shaykh(q) said when someone wants to go on Hajj, he must take the cream of his wealth. Meaning pure earnings. But Ziyarah to Prophet(saw), even if the money is not clean, it will be accepted, because Prophet(saw) will clean it anyway.
Allah(swt) gave Prophet(saw) the ability to correct and fix. Allah(swt) gave Prophet(saw) permission for Shifaa (to intercede for us).

Visiting the Holy Grave of Prophet(saw) or visiting through Salawat, Prophet(saw) responds, from his Love for Ummati. He(saw)will answer.

The meaning of Naqshbandi –
“When you do lot of Dhikrullah, your heart will be engraved with Dhikrullah!
Naqsh- means Heart becomes engraved.
Band- means to connect.”

We are following the Madhab of Imam Shafii(Q).
The taste from Naqshbandi.

Shaykh Hisham(Q) recommends to study and work hard. And share your wealth with the poor.

“Rabbana Atina fid dunya Hasanatan” – O My Lord, give us in Dunya and Ahkirah.
