THE COMING OF SAHIBU ZAMAN, IMAM MAHDI (ALAIHISSALAM)

Sohbet (discourse) of Sulthanul Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al Haqqani Al-Kibrisi An-Naqshbandi Al-Hassani Ar-Rabbani (Q.S)
5th March 2011
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem
Allahumma Swalli Alaa Muhamamdin wa Aali Muhammad…Meded Ya Rijal Allah..
Until the appearance of Sayyidina Mahdi (A.S) ,we are keeping the people busy.After the appearance there will be a great opening. Mawlana Shaykh says that, the appearance of Mahdi (A.S) will be soon and there is only one war left. It is called ‘Al Malhamatul Kubra’, it is the big war Armageddon. It is mentioned in other Holy Books as well. It is said in the Hadith: ‘The world will not come to an end until two great powers fight together. A great war must take place between two great powers and their ideology is the same. The world is going in that direction. It is being prepared to go on that direction.Now, we are in the era of tyrants, the period of ignorance.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) asked by the companions, “Ya Rasool Allah, There is a verse in the Quran about you, “Innaka Mayyitun wa Innahum Mayyituna” (39:30), You are going to taste death, everyone is going to taste death, it means who have souls will taste death.
The Sahaba asked: “who is going to lead the nation after you”?
“After me there will be Caliphs”(in the Book Jami Saghir) It will be in turn. After me Caliphs comes, who are Caliphs?
The four Caliphate,Sayyidina Abu Bakar, Sayyidina Omar, Sayyidina Usman Sayyidina Ali (May Allah Sanctify their Noble Souls) after Hazret Imam Hussain (R.A), it is finished.
The Sahaba (Companions) asked, if the judgement day comes after that?. He says there more, who will lead your ummah (nation), after the deputies (Caliphs) will come “Umara” (Emirs), Emiri dynasty and Abbasid dynasty. Amir Al Mu’mineen Harun Al Rashid for example.Abbasid in Baghdad,Amawi in Damascus. After that Judgement day will come?
Who is going to lead the Ummah? After the Emirs will be Kings. They are the Ottoman Sultans. They will rule the Islamic nation.
After that, who comes? After the Kings, there will be tyrants. Tyrants , they reject Islam and they reject Shari’ath!. Tyrants who opens a door to the unbelievers. It is the time of tyrants that is coming.
When Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam) informed the Sahaba about what the Muslims will go through the time of tyrants to the Sahaba, they cried.
Now, the incidents in Egypt, Libya what people experienced,the tyrants, they opened the door. After Sultan Adbul Hamid, it was opened to the tyrants (1925 AD). There was two things, I don’t know if you saw it in Topkap Palace?. You see two circles when you go inside. That two circles look like the Sun.Every Sultans name is written in it. With Sultan Abdul Hamid’s name, the circle was full. From the beginning of the Ottoman Emperors up to Sultan Abdul Hamid, the first circle was filled, there was no place for Sultan Rashad. He cried and he said, put another one, they put first name Sulan Rashad in it. He was the first Sultan without the power of absolute monarchy, but it was a constitutional monarchy with limited power.
It is the tyrants and dictators time,all of them are enemies of Islam. All these tyrants will go against religion. Sahab cried when they heard this cruelty and injustice in this time. The Sahaba asked: Is the Judgement Day during this time?
The Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: no,then will come a man from my lineage,and he is the owner of time Mahdi (A.S).
he will fill the world with justice as much as it was filled with injustice, he is going to finish off the tyrants and fill the world with justice. Now, the way belongs to him. All of these tyrants. “Wa Khaba Kullu Jabbarin ‘Anidin” (Quran 14:15). All the tyrants, every stubborn tyrant will be defeated. This is the verse in Quran. They are both tyrants and stubborn dogs. This will end,. After that, Sahibu Zaman comes and finishes them he will raise the flag of Islam from East to West. All world becomes Muslim. Now we have reached this point. He started to rip out where ever there isa tyrant. Where ever there is someone who rejects Shariath they are finished. (Means the trap of Mahdi alaihissalam is set against every tyrant, hypocrite and oppressors).
If we speak till the morning, it won’t finish.
Guest asked: Is he (Mahdi) alive?
Mawlana said: “he is alive”.He is waiting for the order,
Guest: Is he in Turkey?
Mawlana: There is no Awliyas (Devoted Saints/Friends of God) in Turkey, even in cemeteries. They are transferred to Damascus. They are transferred because of tyranny!. There are Awliyas to guard the Ummah in Turkey. There are seven Awliyas, nobody knows them. Seven Awliyas they hold it, there are people in Turkey to be guarded. Now, we hope that, there is movement, there is events taking place, but as the movement intensifies, Hz Mahdi’ (A.S)’s appearance comes closer, the whole world will be in a chaos. they call it ‘Armageddon’ (Al malhamathul Kubra), it has to happen first. And when it happens, Hazret Mahdi (A.S) says “Takbir” ,, “Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar Walillahil Hamd” when he says this, all of the weapons stop.technology will stop, the technology that the world worship will stop. With one Takbir, it will be finished. I am waiting for that. The movement started. This movement started like socks ripping of. Like this, taking out of thread from old socks. It will be finished, there is no second chance for the tyrants. Qaddafi is struggling, Their effort is useless. When an animal’s throat is cut , it struggles.you think it is alive. His (Gaddafi’s) effort is futile.
There is no conclusion,even if he shoots half the population, he is going to be shot at the end. It is finished.
Now, there are many countries as far as we know and we are informed Mahdi (A.S) must appear in Hajjul Akbar in Kaba, and this year we have Hajjul Akbar. That’s why they ask permission for Hajj, I don’t have authority to say anything, until we reach Ramadan, don’t ask me during Ramadan, they inform me, ether to go or not. They did not give me permission. If you want to go from your own. I cannot say until Ramadan, the situation of the world is not clear. When Mahdi (A.S) is seen in Arafat, he says Takbir and he finishes it. This is my hope, I have been waiting for Mahdi (A.S) since 1940.I am waiting for 71 years. It has been 71 years that we have been waiting for Mahdi (A.S).
Allah Almighty did not let my hope finish, I still have hope to reach, Insha Allah we gather under his flag. We couldn’t be servant, we only want servant hood. We don’t want to be a pasha or something. We want servant hood. I hope it. We can be saved by Prophet’s (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) intercession. There is no hope of survival for us. Aman, ya Rabb. Forgive us for your Beloved One. Send us Imam Al Mahdi (A.S)

Wa Salam Alaikum

Hazret Shaykh Abu Yaqub Yusuf Al Hamadani (R.A)

HAZRET SHAYKH YUSUF AL HAMADANI (R.A)
In the Name of Allah Most Merciful Most Beneficent
Allahumma Swalli Alaa Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Ala aali Sayyidina Muhamamdin Wa Sallim:
In an earlier post I mentioned Ghujdawani (d.1179), the first of the Seven Khwajagan of the Bukhara Oasis. Al-Ghujdawani’s teacher was Abu Ya`qub Yusuf ibn Ayyab ibn Yusuf ibn al-Husayn al-Hamadani (to give his full name). Yusuf al-Hamadani was born in 1062 in a village near the city of Hamadan in what was then Khorasan, now Iran. At the age of eighteen he moved to Baghdad where he quickly attained the reputation as one of the leading scholars of his time.

According to a biographical Sketch of Hamadani:
Later in his life he secluded himself and left the world behind. He became an ascetic and engaged in constant worship and mujahada (spiritual struggle). He associated with Shaykh Abdullah Ghuwayni and Shaykh Hasan Simnani, but his secret was given him by Shaykh Abu `Ali al-Farmadhi. He made progress in self-denial and contemplation until he became the Ghawth (Arch-Intercessor) of his time. He was known as the Rain of Realities and Truth and Spiritual Knowledge. He finally settled in Merv. Through him countless miraculous events occurred.

Khwajah Yusuf Al Hamadani (Q.S) said: “Of his saints, He makes one group hear through His Exalted Witnessing (shuhada at-tanzih); He makes others hear through His Unique Oneness (wahdaniyya); He makes another group of them hear through His Mercy (rahma). And He makes some hear through His Power (qudra).”

Explanation: it is by the knowledge of Wahdaniyyah (Marifa) God makde Himself Known to most of His Saints. This group of Saints, usually known with a title with their name: Al Arif Billah”

But ordinary scholars and many of today’s Sufi groups take “Arif Billah” (those who known God by the Knowledge of Wahdaniyya) to be highest level!.
Because even those Saints who fell into that stations does not perceive the higher staion above that. That is as explained by our Great Shaykh and Gawth (Arch-Intercessor) Abu Yaqub Yusuf Al Hamadani (Qaddasallahu Sirrahu)
But the highest and most exalted Saints are those who are known God through His Exalted Witnessing (shuhada at-tanzih).

From His Miracles

He reflected the Divine attribute of Severity (al-Qahhar) with those who opposed the dissemination of spirituality. Following are two of his miraculous deeds in that respect:

One day he was holding an association in which he was enlightening the listeners with heavenly knowledge. Two literalist scholars who were present said, “Keep quiet, because you are devising innovation.” He said to them, “Do not talk about matters that you do not understand. It is better for you to die than to remain.” As he spoke these words they immediately fell dead.

Ibn Hajar al-Haythami records in his book Al-Fatawa al-Hadithiyya, “Abu Sa`id Abdullah ibn Abi `Asran, the Imam of the School of Shafi’i, said, ‘When I began a search for religious knowledge I accompanied my friend, Ibn as-Saqa, who was a student in the Nizamiya School, and it was our custom to visit the pious. We heard that there was in Baghdad a man named Yusuf al-Hamadani who was known as al-Ghawth, and that he was able to appear whenever he liked and was able to disappear whenever he liked. So I decided to visit him along with Ibn as-Saqa and Shaykh Abdul Qadir al-Jilani, who was a young man at that time. Ibn as-Saqa said, ‘When we visit Shaykh Yusuf al-Hamadani I am going to ask him a question the answer to which he will not know.’ I said, ‘I am also going to ask him a question and I want to see what he is going to say.’ Shaykh ‘Abdul Qadir al-Jilani said, ‘O Allah, protect me from asking a saint like Yusuf Hamadani a question, but I will go into his presence asking for his baraka blessings and Divine Knowledge.’

‘We entered his association. He veiled himself from us and we didn’t see him until after one hour had passed. He looked at Ibn as-Saqa angrily and said, without having been informed of his name, ‘O Ibn as-Saqa, how dare you ask me a question when your intention is to confound me?’ Your question is this and your answer is this!’ Then he said to Ibn Saqa, ‘I am seeing the fire of kufr (unbelief) burning in your heart.’ He looked at me and said, ‘O `Abdallah, are you asking me a question and awaiting my answer? Your question is this and your answer is this. Let the people be sad for you because they are losing as a result of your disrespect for me.’ Then he looked at Shaykh ‘Abdul Qadir al-Jilani and said to him, ‘Approach, my son. I am going to bless you. O `Abdul Qadir, you have satisfied Allah and His Prophet with your proper respect for me. I see you in the future sitting on the highest place in Baghdad and speaking and guiding people and saying to them that your feet are on the neck of every wali (saint). And I am seeing every wali of your time bowing to you because of your great station and honor.’”

Ibn Hajar al-Haythami continues, “`Abdul Qadir has been lifted up and all that shaykh al-Hamadani said about him came to pass. There came a time when he did say, ‘My feet are on the necks of all the awliya (saints),’ and he was a reference and a beacon guiding all people in his time to their destinations.”

“The fate of Ibn as-Saqa was something else. He was brilliant in his knowledge of the Law of Islam. He preceded all the scholars in his time. He used to debate with the scholars of his time and overcome them, until the khalif called him to be a member of his court. One day the khalif sent him as a messenger to the King of Byzantium, who in his turn called all the priests and scholars of Christianity to debate him. Ibn as-Saqa was able to defeat all of them in debate. They were helpless to give answers in his presence. He gave them answers that made them look like mere students in his presence.

“His brilliance fascinated the King of Byzantium so that he invited him to his private family gathering. There Ibn as-Saqa’s eyes fell on the daughter of the King. He immediately fell in love with her, and asked her father, the King, for her hand in marriage. She refused except on condition that he accept her religion. He did, leaving Islam and accepting the Christian religion of the princess. After his marriage he became seriously ill. They threw him out of the palace. He became a town beggar, asking everyone for food, yet no one would provide for him. Darkness had come over his face.
“One day he saw someone that had known him before. That person relates: ‘I asked him, ‘What happened to you?’ He replied, ‘There was a temptation that I fell into.’ The man asked him, ‘Do you remember anything from the Holy Qur’an?’ He replied, ‘I only remember rubbama yawaddu-l-ladheena kafaru law kanu muslimeen (‘Again and again will those who disbelieve wish that they were Muslims’ [15:2]).

“‘He was trembling as if he was giving up his last breath. I turned him towards the Ka’aba (the West), but he kept turning towards the East. Then I turned him back towards Ka’aba, but he turned himself to the East. I turned him a third time, but he turned himself to the East. Then as his soul was passing from him, he said, ‘O Allah that is the result of my disrespect to Your Arch-intercessor Yusuf al-Hamadani.’”
Imam Haythami continues: “Ibn `Asran said, ‘I went to Damascus and the king there, Nuridin ash-Shaheed, put me in charge of the department of religious affairs, and I accepted. As a result, the worldly life came at me from every side: provision, sustenance, fame, money, position for the rest of my life. That is what the Arch-intercessor Yusuf al-Hamadani had predicted for me.’”
Khwajah Yusuf Hamadani (R.A) died and was entombed at Merv. His mausoleum is today one of the most sacred and perhaps the most popular pilgrimage site in Turkmenistan.

Hazret Shaykh Abdul Khaliq Ghujdevani (Q.S)

HAZRET SHAYKH ABDUL KHALIQ GHUJDEVANI (Q.S)
In the Name of Allah Most Mericul Most Beneficent
Hadhrat Khwaja Abd al-Khaliq al-Ghujdawani qaddas-Allahu sirrahu was born on 22 Sha’ban 435 AH in Ghujdawan near Bukhara (modern-day Uzbekistan).

He received the silent recollection (Al-dhikr Al-Qalbi) in his youth from Al-Khidr (peace be upon him), and persisted with the said recollection. Al Khidr (alaihissalam) accepted him as a son and commanded him to become absorbed in it and to say in his heart under the water “there is no god but Allah and Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is the Messenger ofu Allah”. The Khwajah did it. He learned this from himand engaged himself with this there, until all sorts of openings and elevations occurred to him beyond the perception of discernment.
The Manner of his engagement , his goal , and his utmost perfection were acceptabe and desirable from beginning to end among all people. When Khwajah Yusuf Al Hamadani (Qaddasallahu Sirrahu) arrived in Bukhara , Khwajag Abdul Khaliq (Qaddasallahu Sirrahu) came to visit him and, as he learned that he too is enggaged in the silent Dhikr,he benefited from his company (sohbat) and attended him during his stay in Bukhara.
Therefore, it is said that Al Khidr (Peace be upon him), was his master in instruction and inspiration while Khwajaha Yusuf Al Hamadani (Qaddasallahu Sirrahu) was his master in accompaniment.
He passed away on 12 Rabi’ al-Awwal 575 AH in his hometown Ghujdawan, near Bukhara (Uzbekistan), where his tomb is a place of pilgrimage. (From Rashahat,26)

NAQSHBANDI PRINCIPLES:
There are eight Naqshbandi Principles formulated by the Imam  of the Khwajagan (early Naqshabndi Silsila) order , Hazret Shaykh Abdul Khaliq Ghujdavani (Q.S) and three other principles formulated by the Imam of the Tariqah Khwajah Muhammad Baha’uddin Naqshbandi Al-Uwaisi Al-Bukhari (Q.S).

They are:1-Hosh Dar Dam (Awareness of breath), 2Nazar Bar Qadam (Watching the step), 3-Safar dar Watan (Journey in the Spiritual Path) , 4-Khalwat Dar Anjuman (Solitude in the Society) , 5-Yad Kard (Reminding outwardly and inwardly of God’s Name), 6-Baz Gasht (return to the responsibilities of a person according to  Shari’ah after performing pure Zikr), 7-Concentration on God (Yaddasht), 8-Nigadasht (Guarding one’s spiritual state) 


The Secret of Naqshbandiyya is passed from Hazret Abdul Khaliq Ghudevani (Q.S) to Shah Baha’uddin Naqshabndi (Q.S) through spiritual transmission as Hazret Abdul Khaliq Ghujdevani (Q.S) received it from Hazret Khidr (alaihissalam), and the fulfillment of formal and outward authorization and succession which is fulfillemnt of the sacred Law (Shari’ah) is received from Hazret Yusuf A Hamadani (Q.S) to Hazret Abul Khaliq Ghujdevani (Q.S) and Shah Baha’uddin Naqshbandi (Q.S) from Hazret Sayyid Amir Kulal (Qaddasallahu Sirrahu)
