Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al-Haqqani (Q.S),Sohbah (Discourse) on how to receive a perfume from Heavens-
” Why are you searching for honor on earth? Dunya is manure. Dunya (this world) is a carcass.
Whoever stands as guard of dunya and wants honor, he is like that (carcass).
Those who have honor from heavens, their appearance is beautiful, without putting perfume, they have a nice smell.
Their smell is 70x better than rose perfume. They have a nice smell.
They have a nice smell in the assemblies they join. Ay Yaran Shah Mardan.
The beloved ones of Shah Mardan, they’re not in need of using perfume.
Because their smell has come from Shah Mardan. The smell of Shah Mardan is not from earth, it’s from heavens.
Shah Mardan’s honor is from heavens. It isn’t from earth.
You should look. Search for honor from heavens. Don’t look for honor by your name written in newspapers. It is worthless.
Ay Shah Mardan. The inhabitants of heavens and earth love you. You are loved. O those who accept Shah Mardan… Ali Ibn Abu Talib, Allah’s Lion..
Follow his morals, holdfast to his way. Accept his adab (good manners). The honor of dunya is not important. You will be in the station of honor in hereafter.
Take the honorof akhirah (hereafter). The honor of earth is not honor. Carcass.
A carcass doesn’t give people honor. And those guarding carcasses have no honor either. And those running after carcasses are jackals.
Jackals. Don’t be from them! Search for the honor of heavens!” Al Fatiha
Man is not watching to see and to realizing, to understand through the history that Allah SWT is giving to us through all holy books. Some may not like what the Qu’ran is saying. It’s okay. Take what the Taurat (Torah) is saying. Look what’s being mentioned in Taurat, in the story of Namrud (Nimrod) and Ibrahim(Abraham) (A.s.). What Namrud declared?
He said ” I am the lord of the earth. Everywhere belongs to me. ” And Allah put 1 servant in front of him saying to him, “Leave that arrogance. Make prostration to your Lord who has given you all this power.” Saying to him, “Lord? I am the lord. I am the creator. What your lord does?”
“He gives life and takes life.”
That one was saying, “It’s easy. I do the same.” He put 2 prisoners in front of him saying , ” One I am setting free. I am giving life to him. The other one , take his life. Kill him.” Hmm. Then Ibrahim (As) was saying to him, “In that case….”, Prophets don’t argue. He said, “In that case, my lord is raising the sun from the East. You stop it. You raise it from the west.”
Namrud started shaking. And knowing that he cannot do that he said to him, “Not even the one you are claiming to be your Lord can do that.” He said , ” He can.” For that is Allah promising from that day, “Before Judgement Day, We are going to raise the sun from the west one time. Make sure that you are asking forgiveness up till that day. When the sun is rising from the west again, the door of forgiveness is closed. no one’s asking for forgiveness after that is going to be accepted.
