The Meaning of Hajj

BismillahirRahmanirRahim

We are entering to the days of Hajj. These are the days of the pilgrimage to the House of Allah. Holy Prophet (asws) is saying about the Hajj in his Hadiths e-Sharif, ‘the ones striving in the course of Allah and the one performing Hajj, and the one performing Umrah, are all the delegations of Allah. He calls them and they respond to His call. They ask Him, and He answers their supplications.’

The Hajj, it is a preparation, it is a rehearsal for dying, leaving this world, and meeting with Allah swt. When a person goes on Hajj, he puts on his Ihram, two white sheets that are representing his funeral shroud. Every action in the Hajj, every step in the Hajj, it has significance. And that is why the person who performs the Hajj properly, he comes back free of sins. Because it is as though he has given up from his life and he has a new life for Allah swt sake. But, are the 21st century Muslims thinking like this?

One of the great Awliya Allah, Sheykh Ali-Hujwiri (qs) is describing the reality of the rituals of the Hajj, saying, ‘wearing Ihram, in reality means giving up your bad habits. Staying in Arafah means being busy with the love of Allah swt. Going to Muzdalifah means giving up from the desires of the ego. Making Tawaf around the Ka’ba means being in awakening station about Allah swt. Coming back from Mina means leaving behind your hawa, your desires. Running between Safa and Marwa means purifying your heart and your soul. Cutting a kurban means sacrificing all the desires of your nafs. And throwing pebbles at the sheytan means throwing away your bad companions and your bad habits.’ And he goes on to say, ‘if a murid fails to observe and learn this lessons from his pilgrimage to Ka’ba, his going to the Hajj will make no difference to him. And indeed, it will be an aimless and a vain show.’

So which Hajj is being made today? That real Hajj that Hz Hujwiri is describing? or that fake Hajj, that is an aimless and a vain show?

If we ask ourselves sincerely, we get the answer.

SOME HADITHS ABOUT HAJJ:

Sahih Muslim, Book of Hajj:

Salim reported on the authority of his father (‘Abdullah b. ‘Umar) that the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) was asked what a Muhrim should wear, whereupon he said: A Muhrim should not wear a shirt, or a turban, or a cap, or trousers, or a cloth touched with wars or with saffron, nor (should he wear) stock- ings, but in case he does not find shoes, but (before wearing stockings) be should trim them (in such a way) that these should become lower than the ankles.

Sahih Bukhari: Book of Hajj: Hajj on Behalf of others:

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin Abbas : Al-Fadl (his brother) was riding behind Allah’s Apostle and a woman from the tribe of Khath’am came and Al-Fadl started looking at her and she started looking at him. The Prophet turned Al-Fadl’s face to the other side. The woman said, “O Allah’s Apostle! The obligation of Hajj enjoined by Allah on His devotees has become due on my father and he is old and weak, and he cannot sit firm on the Mount; may I perform Hajj on his behalf?” The Prophet replied, “Yes, you may.” That happened during the Hajj-al-Wida (of the Prophet ).

 

Sunan Abu Dawud:  Book of Pilgrimage rites

Narrated Aqra’ ibn Habib: Ibn Abbas said: Aqra’ ibn Habis asked the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) saying: Apostle of Allah hajj is to be performed annually or only once? He replied: Only once, and if anyone performs it more often, he performs a supererogatory act.

Only Mahdi and Messiah can bring Peace to the World

BismillahirRahmanirRahim

Today because of the Ahir of Ahir Zaman, the Awliya (Saint of Allah) are pulling themselves away from public areas. They are hiding themselves. Even if they come out together, they cannot make the whole desert to become green. They can only make small areas of waters and rivers around them green but not the whole desert. For the whole desert to become green we need rain coming down from Paradise. And for this world to become correct again, for all the seven billion, close to seven billion people to turn themselves back to the right road again, you need someone who is coming with the Heavenly power, Heavenly justice, Heavenly rules and Heavenly laws. Those ones are Isa alayhi salam and Mehdi alayhi salam.

No one can bring any other peace to this world except those. So many millions and billions are going to become disobedient to them too. But those ones are not coming asking people for votes. Don’t forget. They are not coming to ask votes from us. They are coming to set rules and laws to us saying, “This is what your Lord wants. Turn this way.” Their swords are very sharp. It’s cutting from both sides.

Those ones who are coming from Heavenly stations are coming to set the rules and laws back to this world. They are not coming with any new laws and rules. They are coming to bring back the traditions and the Sunnats of the prophets and Holy Prophet (asws). To bring things back alive for people to follow and find the right way. Otherwise, there is no right way. Maybe according to individuals, but not according to the Heavenly stations.

Right and wrong is according to the books that Allah has sent down to us, not according to our own understanding. You go to a Buddhist and ask, “What is right for you?” He will say, “Buddha.” You go to a Christian to ask, “What is right for you?” They will say, “Jesus.” You ask, “Who is that one?” He is whatever the church teaches them. Some churches teach the Trinity and some churches teach that he is only a prophet. Whatever they learn.

Hah!… the rules and the laws have been set fourteen hundred years ago. Mehdi (as) and Isa (as) are ready to come down to set everything back to its place again. They are not bringing any laws. They are not bringing new laws. They are not Prophets. Isa (as) is not coming back as a prophet. It is finished. Prophethood is closed. The Seal of the Prophet Muhammad (asws) sealed it and he closed it. Isa (as) is coming to set the rules and the laws of Muhammad (asws) to live according to that. Mehdi (as) is coming to bring everybody together and prepare them for Isa (as). If anyone, any other systems or any other groups are saying otherwise, we are saying here that it’s wrong. That day is coming when you are going to see that it’s wrong. Right is always only one, not two. The right way is coming all the way from the Prophet’s (saw) teachings until today.

Islam is for Mercy to the Whole World

BismillahirRahmanirRahim

People today they claim that they are making Jihad. They are going and they are taking Muslims, then they are cutting their necks off and they’re saying “We’re doing this for Allah, Jihad.” You’re killing a Muslim man? And Allah is saying to you in the Book, “If you kill one Muslim without a reason, it is as if you killed all the Muslims in the Divine Presence.” Allahu Akbar! But when it comes to them they are the best Muslims too. And they come out these days and they justify that by saying, “This is what Prophet (saw) ordered.” They’re using the ayats that were revealed when Holy Prophet (saw) took the prisoners of war. And the Prophet(alayhi salatu wa salam) was hesitating to kill the prisoners of war. He asked Abu Bakr (ra) and Abu Bakr says, “Ya Rasulullah,it’s better not to kill them.” It’s better just to sell them back because the nation of Islam now needs money and we take money for them. So when he asks Umar, Umar says, “Ya Rasulullah, cut them.”

And the Prophet (saw), that is a Prophet, and the Prophet (saw) is not wanting too, because the Holy Prophet is what? He is the Prophet of Mercy. He is not a prophet of punishment. So now an ayat came saying, “You came to a wrong judgment about that matter”,saying to Holy Prophet (alayhi salatu wa salam). But it says, because Allah knows your intention, there will be safety. As you like. And Holy Prophet (saw) turns around and says, “If the punishment was coming then everyone will be finished except Umar.” But Allah is giving the decision to the Prophet (saw) saying, “As you like.” Because that is the Prophet of Mercy, and that’s what fits there too. He’s not a prophet of punishment.

Now they’re using that ayat and saying, “We can kill them.” But first of all these people, they are not your prisoners of war. First thing, those people that are there are either to make work to earn money for their families or they are there to build your nation. Someway somehow. You don’t like it, but the nation is finished. The country is finished. Everything failed and those technicians, those people, they went there to build your nation. Millions of people they are supporting those. Saying,”They are right.” According to what? Now they’re using the ayats too. That’s their understanding. But Prophet (saw) saying again to us, “In Ahir Zaman, everyone of you are going to use the ayats according to your own understanding. That time prepare yourselves for the Fire.” That means he’s not giving us permission to take the ayat and to start making judgment or fatwa or to give commentary to the ayats. You don’t have authority.

Generous Man Leave This World With Faith

BismillahirRahmanirRahim

Waliyullahi Hz Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S)

Waliyullahi Hz Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S)

One day, sheytan came to Isa (a.s) and he asked him, ‘who do you hate and who do you love amongst the children of Adam?’

Sheytan answered, ‘ I hate those who have no faith, but they are generous.’

Isa (a.s) said, ‘they have no faith and yet you hate them?’

Sheytan said, ‘Yes. And I love those who have faith but they are stingy.’

Isa (a.s) asked, ‘Why is that?’

Sheytan said, ‘the stingy person, I’m going to pull him. He cannot escape from my hand. I’m waiting and guarding. Before Azrail comes, I will pull him and I will take the faith away. But the generous one, Allah is watching that one and He opens and creates reasons for that one to have faith and to go out from this world with a faith.’

The generous people Allah loves, all Prophets love and all Awliya love. Generosity makes man not to go out from this world without faith. Some way somehow it’s going to reach to man. Allah swt is favoring that one because he’s generous.

And generosity, even if he’s an unbeliever, it’s going to reach to them, some help is going to reach to them to say the Shahadat in the last minute and go out from this world. Impossible for him to go out from this world without faith.

If you are a stingy one, you may pray a lot, you may do so many worshipping, but there’s a big danger waiting for you. You may go out from this world without faith if you are a stingy person. It’s because you are being stingy in the Mulk of Allah swt which is not yours. Allah doesn’t like that. He doesn’t want that from His servants.

The stingy ones, even if they do something, because of their stinginess, even though they did it but their heart is hurting, even if they did something great, instead of getting lots of reward they may get a lot of punishment for it.

What they asked for from their Lord, what they asked for.

Ask for relief from Janab-ul Haqq.
He created us, He created us beautiful.
He made us busy with supplication and reason.
What should our task be? Let it be – saying Allah. O our Lord.

Go ahead, O Shah Mardan.

May our hearts be glad together with you.
May our hearts be relieved. O our Lord. Let us say: Ya Hu.

It’snot easy to be filled with the Divine Love. It’s not easy to walk around the Ka’aba with that love.
It’s not easy to say Allah with that love.

Strive to become better one

ismillah ir Rahman ir Rahim

So people in today’s world has become very cruel to each other and we should turn around. Because if there are cruelty around us then we cannot find peace in our own selves. We have to find that peace. If we cannot find that peace in our own selves then we cannot understand where we came from and where we are going to go. This is the game Shaytan is playing on us making us nervous all the time fighting and arguing always. This way we will continuously be busy with the wrong things and we would not have the time to think to become better individuals.

Leave everybody. You have to become a better individual first to yourself. You have to have a clear mind and you have to have peace in your heart. This is not something they sell in McDonalds, Burger King, Macy’s or here and there. You cannot buy it but you have to have it. It has to be found. Otherwise, this world becomes hell. We have already turned this world into hell because we do not know what is going to happen five minutes later, in the streets of New York City also.

We must make intention to become better humans, first to understand our own selves and to understand our Lord. When we understand that then we will understand what is the reason of our creation. We have not been created to eat like animals, to sleep, to have sex and to have children and to multiply.

That is not the only reason. That is one part of our lives. But it is not the only reason of our creation. The One that has created us has the right to question us one day. You have the right to question your own children. The boss has the right to question his workers. The President has the right to question his deputies, the police has the right to question you in the streets if he sees something wrong. So Allah has the right to question us, and when He does what are we going to say?

How did we live? Did we try to make any effort to become better ones?

Seek Waseela of Shah-E-Mardan (Imam Ali Alaihissalam)

Bismillahi RahmanI Raheem

What does man want? He wants honour. Allahu Akbar. Dastur, ey Shah-i Mardan. That’s how it is. What do we want in this world? A house, some land, gardens. vineyards, gold and money. What good comes to man from these things? Why does he desire them? He wants these things as means for him to gain honour. That’s it. wa-btaghū ilayhi l-wasīla (5:35), seek the means to draw close to Him. The holy verse: wa-btaghū – ibtighā; ibtighā does not signify an ordinary request or desire. There is this, and then Allah Almighty also says: as’alu-llāha min fadlihi, ask of Allah from His Bounty. Shaykh Mehmet Efendi. as’alu-llāha min fadlihi, Ask Allah Almighty for His Bounty. as’alu-llāha min fadlihi. Ask of the gracious Bounty of Allah in whom you have placed your faith. wa-btaghū ilayhi l-wasīla (5:35), seek the means to draw close to Him. There should be in you an endless desire. Do not say, ‘Up to here!’ Wasīla.

Come, O Shah-i Mardan. Allahu Akbar. As Allah is Akbar, the Greatest, His grant also possesses the greatest strength. Ask nothing of anybody else. wa-btaghū ilayhi l-wasīla (5:35) Look to find wasīla. What for? In order to gain even greater closeness to Allah Almighty. When wasīla is mentioned, look for the means to draw near, Allah, Allah, Subhan Allah. If a person plans to pay a visit to the Sultan, he seeks the means to do so. He seeks one who will introduce him into the presence of the Sultan. O heedless person, why don’t you seek the means of gaining access to the Presence of your Creator? wa-btaghū ilayhi l-wasīla. (5:35) O our Lord, grant us strength! For the sake of His Beloved (sallallahu alaihi wa aalihi wa sallam). This is an important point. Seek the means to draw near to Him, the Lord of Might and Glory. Come, O Shah-i Mardan, come and be our means of drawing near. All you who are in attendance, marhaba. And all of you listening, marhaba.

Let there be comfort and ease. inna ardī wāsi‘atun, fa iyyāya fa‘budūn. (29:56) There is no limit to My Dominion. However, inna ardī wāsi‘atun, fa iyyāya fa‘budūn. (29:56) He says: Do not look at My Dominion, look instead at My Kingdom. wa-btaghū ilayhi l-wasīla. (5:35) In order to reach to My Kingdom, you must look for the means to approach. Ya. Seek such means. For us it is Shah-i Mardan, he is our means for drawing close to Him. Because of him (S.Mardan) we have light, and joy, and cheer. He who forgets about Allah, he has neither gladness, nor ease, nor happiness. It is a shame for him. You must seek to draw near to the Lord of Glory. You must seek Nearness to Allahu Dhu l-Jalāl, the Sultan. O our Lord, let us be among those who understand this.

Divine Message of the Sufi

BismillahirRahmanirRahim

Waliyullahi Sahibu Saif Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S)

Waliyullahi Sahibu Saif Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S)

“Divine Message of the Sufi”

Islam is two principles, sitting on two principles, one is to learn how to worship your Lord. Second, learn to help and to reach his creations. If the person does these two things, then he will reach to the highest stations. Without separating, saying “this is Jew, this is Christian, this is black, this is white, this is green, this is yellow.” In originally, we are all created from the same thing, we have the same material, same creation material.

So Allah saying to us in the Holy Quran, “we have separate you in different nations, in different tribes, to go find one and each other, to learn from each other, to exchange, to learn, to improve yourself, to become better ones. To become better ones to the Divine service.”

In reality, we are all for Divine service. We are not for our own service, our own ego’s service, but for the greater service. We have to be in His service, when we are in His service, that time, we will be able to look at His creatures, saying “this is His creature, my duty is to serve that creature. If I’m serving my Lord, my duty is to serve that creature.”

So this is the name, the faith I believe every one of us here we are sharing. I don’t think anyone here finding the separation here. Our duty is to love each other as a man, and to respect each other, respect each other’s rights. And learn how to know, how to communicate, how to love each other.

When we learn how to love each other, then we will be able to reach to our Creator. One of the Hadith, the relating Hadith meaning the words of the Holy Prophet Muhammad, Alayhi salam wa tu Salaam saying to us, “ The one who doesn’t says la ilaha illallah, Meaning la ilaha illallah, there is no God but only one who created all. Because the people they have invented Gods to themselves. They built idols and they did so many things. They started worship to those things, and they said, ‘this is our God.’”

So the Holy Prophet Muhammad SAWS is saying, “la ilaha illallah, there is no Gods man can created, but illallah, that One who have created everyone.” Anyone who says these words and they believe, they are entering into paradise. That means that one has a faith.

He says, “but if you don’t love each other, if you don’t learn how to love each other, even if you are saying that word, you are not really reaching to the main roots of the faith .”

Saint of Islam Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al–Kibrisi (Q.S) Wali of Allah

BismillahirRahmanirRahim

To be a murid, you need to have Adab, you need to have manners. Everything starts opening to a man who has manners. The more opens to him the more obedient he becomes to his Sheykh then. He can see the Paradises, he can enter and come back, but he will never leave his Sheykh then because what he is looking for is not even in Paradise. It is in his Sheykh’s hand and nobody else carries that.

Today Sufism, tariqat becomes people’s running to have some entertainment. Some are running to have some comfort. Some are already fed up with the outside world and they are getting old. They are tired of sitting home and so they are running to tariqat. This is the mentality of today’s tariqat. But did tariqats change and did Sheykhs lose that power?

No. They still have it. They are circling around this world and they are checking people. You may be sitting next to him for twenty years and you may get nothing. He is circling in the world, he is looking and he says, “This one has good behavior.” He gives it to that one and walks away. He never finishes. The more he gives the more comes. But can you give diamond to the hand of an ignorant person? Can you take a diamond and throw it in front of a pig? What is he going to do with it?

So first you have to know what the treasure is. You have to know what you are looking for. And to get that you have to know what you have to sacrifice. You have to sacrifice something. Everyone has to sacrifice something. If you are not sacrificing it means that you are not really ready and prepared to get what is there. You just want it for your own ego.

So yes, in tariqat sometimes Sheykhs show the people the most luxurious life and sometimes they show them the worst lifestyle that people are going through. You have to go through it to understand. You may be with the Sheykh one week and you will be living like a king and the next week you will be living like a beggar in the street. Sheykh
has the right to tell you, “Let’s go, we are going outside now to start begging from people.”

Huh, what will you do then? If you have no submission, what are you going to do? You are going to say, “He is a thief. Is he trying to teach me how to steal or to ask from people?”

So submission comes with everything you have. You no longer have your own ideas of thinking and understanding. If you cannot think the way that the Sheykh is directing you then it is forbidden for you to think and to try to analyze things by your own self because you are going to come to the wrong understanding. Sheytan is going to be there. So your Sheykh is not there. Sheytan is going to be your Sheykh. And you are still going to say, “He is my Sheykh.” But no. Sheytan is your Sheykh. Sheytan is giving you directions then.

Foot Note:
Good morals and manners alone does not make anyone Sufi or inheritor of the spiritual lineage of the Sufi Path. One must have a true Sufi Shaykh and should be sincere to his/her Shaykh.

Question and Answer:sufi
bro,sheik Nazim is Awliyaullah,why doesnt he curse them and say to AllahSWT to punish them (Wahhabis/abusers of Shaykh) ?

Answer:

Bismillhi Rahmani Raheem

Allahumma Swalli Ala sayyidina Muhammadin wa Ala Aali Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Sallim

Prophet alaihiswalathu wasalam was asked by companions to curse the disbelievers. Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam replied: “I have been sent as a Mercy to the world, not as a curse!

You see those who attack ahlul bayt and awliya Allah, they are cursing people of other faiths, in streets and demonstrations!
and you must know that they nether love Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam, nor give any respect for Prophet’s words.

Islam does not teach to curse individuals, but the curse have been said as:
Curse of Allah up on liars ,Hypocrites, disbelievers etc, which God has cursed them in Quran. Not everyone authorized to cruse.

In some verses it has been said: the curse of all mankind on them

That is a natural and divine decree, curse are not fabricated but are originated from the soul!

the greatest punishment is not a sickness or wound or some worldly disasters!, losing Iman (faith) and die in the state of disbelief is the greatest punishment from Allah. And it has been narrated that, those who have malice against ahlul bayt (the progeny of beloved Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam) will reach hell fire, regardless of his prayers,fasting and zakat, even if he did all that in his entire life between Stone and Station of Ibraheem (Maqam Ibraheem alaihissalam)

Imam Ahmad; Tirmidhi who denoted it sahih; Nisa’i and Haakim narrated it from Muttalib bin Rabee’a that the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said to Sayyiduna Abbas Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu
والله لا يدخل قلب امرئ مسلم إيمان، حتى يحبكم لله ولقرابتي
‘By Allah, Imaan (faith) will not enter the heart of a Muslim until he loves you for Allah and for my relationship.’ [Musnad Ahmad, Vol. 1, Page 342, Hadith 1780 | Sunan Tirmidhi, Vol. 5, Page 610, Hadith 3758 | Sunan Nisa'i, Vol. 5, Page 51, Hadith 8175 | Mustadrak al-Hakim, Vol. 4, Page 85, Hadith 6960]

Tirmidhi, denoting it Hasan, and Tabarani narrated from Ibn Abbas the the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said
أحبوا الله لم يغذوكم به من نعمه وأحبوني لحب الله وأحبوا أهل بيتي لحبي
‘Love Allah because of what He gave you from His blessings; Love me because of the Love of Allah and Love my Ahl al-Bait because of my Love.’ [Sunan Tirmidhi, Vol. 5, Page 622, Hadith 3789 | Mustadrak al-Hakim, Vol. 3, Page 162, Hadith 4716 | Tabarani in Al-Kabir, Vol. 3, Page 46, Hadith 2638 | Bayhaqi in Shau'ab al-Iman, Vol. 2, Page 13, Hadith 1378]

Tabarani and Haakim narrated from Ibn Abbaas that the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said
يا ابن عبد المطلب: اني سالت الله لكم تلاثاً ان يثبت قلوبكم وان يعلم جاهلكم ويهدي ضالكم وسالته ان يجعلكم جودآء نجدآء رحمآء فلو ان رجلاً صفن بين الركن والمقام فصلى وصام ثم مات وهو مبغض لاهل بيت محمد دخل النار
‘O Children of Abdul Muttalib, I asked Allah three things for you; that He keeps your hearts steadfast (upon Islam); that He teaches the Deen to your ignorant and illiterate and guides your astray, and that He make you kind, generous and affectionate to one another. So if a man prays, standing between the Rukn and Maqaam, and fasts but dies with malice for the Household of Muhammad he has entered Hell.’ [Tabarani in Al-Kabir, Vol. 11, Page 142, Hadith 11412 | Mustadrak al-Hakim, Vol. 3, Page 162, Hadith 4712]
