ARMAGEDDON (WW III) AND BANU ASFAR (THE RUSSIANS)
Discourse by Sultan of Saints Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al Haqqani (Q.S) ,Lefke, Cyprus,04/10/2011
In the Name of Allah Most Merciful Most Beneficent
Peace and blessings of Allah be upon Prophet Muhammad, his holy family and companions.
Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (Q.S) was asked, how can people prepare for the difficulties of the coming days?
He said: “Neither money, nor property will save people in these days.Only good deeds,, charity ,and true belief can save them”.
It happens according to Allah’s Will. But this is the news from our Prophet (peace be upon him). He has informed us that what it meas by “Banu Asfar” is the Russians. Ibn Arabi Hazret (R.A) said: “Russia will enter Istanbul”.Our Grand Shaykh Hazret (Shaykh Abdullah Faiz Dagestani Q.S) said: “They will stay there three months”.. They will go down to the valley of Amuq (Syria), the Amuq Valley. The battle there is well-known.
It is mentioned in the Books. Therefore ,the Russians, they will come, under 80 banners. 80 Flags mean 80 divisions, meaning one million soldiers will come. Another one million will come from the other side. The big battle will take place there. The Muslim army will be in three parts. They will come from sham and meet them.It is said, a force from Sham (Syria) will come , to the Amuq valley, that they will meet the Banu Asfar (Russians) in the Amuq Valley.This is the ‘Malhamatul Kubra’,Armageddon.
‘Al Malhamathul Kubra’ (Armageddon) and the conquest of Constantinople (Istanbul) will be after six months and seventh Antichrist (Dajjal) appears’ (Hadith) This is hadith sharif. Russians will come under eighty flags. Under every flag, there are 12,000 men, It is said: Under every flag…meaning each one of them is a division. From the other side comes Muslim army, the forces from Sham. They also come under 80 flags. Mahdi (A.S)’s hand is in it but he has not appeared yet. But it is ‘Mahdi’ (A.S) who manage it with his spiritual power. And, the Muslim army becomes three parts in front of the Banu Asfar (Russians). The first party can’t stand & they run away. Another part, all are martyred. They are ‘Afdal as-Shuhada’ best martyrs. The third part are the ones that they take the revenge. Allah’s divine help reaches to them and they defeat the Russians. They drive the “Banu Asfar” (Russians) all the way to Istanbul. They don’t leave any of them alive in Istanbul. They destroy all the corrupted sects. The Muslim army enters Istanbul Again, it is the Sultan, Sultan will wait for Mahdi (A.S) to say Takbir (Glorification of Allah Almighty) and reach Istanbul, to receive from him the Holy Relics. It will be in this order(procedure). May Allah forgive us.
Those difficult, intense days will not be easy. Fatiha (recite Sura Fatiha).
Hajjah Ruqya: So Muslims, the Muslim army will be in this Battle?
It is not just the US-Russian armies, but the Muslim armies as well?.
Mawlana: The Muslim Army will come and United States will support them. American forces will join them. They will also support them. This is explained in Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi Hazret’s (R.A) book in detail.
Wa min Allahu Tawfeeq ….Faatiha.
“Neither money, nor property will save people in these days.Only good deeds,, charity ,and true belief can save them”

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)

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)
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)
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).
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)
“Who listen to speech and follow the best of it. Those are the ones Allah has guided, and those are people of understanding.
Ulool Albaab are those who are guided by Allah, undoubtedly they are Awliya Allah (the friends of Allah/Saints of Allah)
They are those who Listen to the Speech and Obey those who speak them , it is therefore clear evident that Ulool Albaab is a group with in “ulool Amri”
It is they who say: “We hear and we obey.” (Quran 2:285)
They are the Creed of Imams of the Main Body: Quran 4:59 O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you.
The best of speech is “La ilaha illa Allah Muhammadu Rasoolullahi (swalla Allahu alaihi wa sallam).
So it is obvious that “Ulool Albaab” is those who follow the “Kalima tawheed” , they are the leaders of Ahlu Zikr (the people of Zikr/Remembrance, See Quran 2:269 below)
They are not the people who comes with a Diploma of Islam!. Allah and His Prophets never giving diploma of Islam, from the time of Adam (A.S) until Last Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam!.
We cannot see, in the first three pious generations (Salafu Saalih), a Sahabi with a Diploma or PhD, or the Imams of the schools of Jurisprudence giving Diploma of Islam.
We never have heard, Imam Ahmad Bin Hanbal (M.A, PhD), or Imam Ibn Hajar Asqalani (MSc ,PhD), those who claim they are following Ahlu Sunna and are free from all types of innovations, are in the forefront of giving Diplomas of Islam!
So following Salaf according to whom?, According to Salafs or according to some false claimants?!
He gives wisdom to whom He wills, and whoever has been given wisdom has certainly been given much good. And none will remember except those of understanding.
The best remembrance (Zikr) is the Zikr of Ulool Albaab (the Inheritors of tawheed and Prophetic Knowledge).
The Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “I am the City of Knowledge and Ali is the Door”.
In another Hadith it is said: “Beware the vision of a true believer, for he sees with the Light of Allah”.
ULOOL ALBAAB AND AHLUL BAYTH:
Ulool Albaab and the way of Remembrance (Tariqah of Ahl Zikr) originated from the descendants of the Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam). The Straight Path is preserved with Imams and Shaykhs of Ahlul bayth, who are the bearers of the Prophetic Succession.
Hadith jami at-Tirmidi ,Darussalam Publications (Wahhabi publications)
Hadith Number 3788: The Messenger of Allah (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “Indeed, I am leaving among you, that which if you hold fast to them, you shall not be misguided after me, one of them is greater than the other:The Book of Allah is a rope extended from the sky to the earth, and my family -the people of my house-and they shall not split until they meet me at Hawd, so look at how you deal with them after me” (Sahih
Surah 13. Ar-Ra’d, Ayah 19
۞ أَفَمَنْ يَعْلَمُ أَنَّمَا أُنْزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِنْ رَبِّكَ الْحَقُّ كَمَنْ هُوَ أَعْمَىٰ ۚ إِنَّمَا يَتَذَكَّرُ أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ Then is he who knows that what has been revealed to you from your Lord is the truth like one who is blind? They will only be reminded who are people of understanding –
Comments: Ulool Albaab and their followers are only guided. They are people who follow pious Imams and Shaykhs of the defined creed by Allah and His Messenger (alaihiswalathu wa salam).
Those who follow their own ego or follow those ones who follow their ego cannot be Ulool Albaab. Because Allah and His Messenger (alaihiswalathu wa salam) clearly commanded in the Quran and Hadith, whom you should follow and how you should follow!
Allah says;Quran 45:23 Have you seen he who has taken as his god his [own] desire, and Allah has sent him astray due to knowledge and has set a seal upon his hearing and his heart and put over his vision a veil? So who will guide him after Allah ? Then will you not be reminded?
So it is very clearly stated that those who are just learnt something from College.Masjid or University cannot be “ulool albaab”. There are many scholars in the Book version of Quran and Hadith, the Quran is not counting them as legitimate scholars of religion of Allah!.
There are many Christian and Jew scholars of the external books of Islam, who use their knowledge to harm Muslims!
This [Qur’an] is notification for the people that they may be warned thereby and that they may know that He is but one God and that those of understanding will be reminded.
This verse states that Quran is a Warning for the people. But many people does not understand the wisdom behind the warning, except those who have spiritual understanding.
Because, they are [Quran 2:3] “Who believe in the unseen, establish prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them”,
Surah 38. Sad, Ayah 29
كِتَابٌ أَنْزَلْنَاهُ إِلَيْكَ مُبَارَكٌ لِيَدَّبَّرُوا آيَاتِهِ وَلِيَتَذَكَّرَ أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ
[This is] a blessed Book which We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], that they might reflect upon its verses and that those of understanding would be reminded.
It is their path we must follow, the Path of people of Perfect Zikr (Ulool Albaab)
Allah says: [Quran 1:7] The path of those upon whom You have bestowed favor, not of those who have evoked [Your] anger or of those who are astray.
Quran 39:9 Is one who is devoutly obedient during periods of the night, prostrating and standing [in prayer], fearing the Hereafter and hoping for the mercy of his Lord, [like one who does not]? Say, “Are those who know equal to those who do not know?” Only they will remember [who are] people of understanding.
Here, the Knowledge refers to “Spiritual knowledge” (See Sura Al Kahf 18:65), otherwise this verses become meaningless, because, you can see competitive scholars of External Books of Islam (Quran ,Hadith) in all the different sects!
Quran 3:7 He it is Who has sent down to thee the Book: in it are verses basic or fundamental (of established meaning); they are the foundation of the Book: others are allegorical. But those in whose hearts is perversity follow the part thereof that is allegorical seeking discordand searching for its hidden meanings but no one knows its hidden meanings except Allah and those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say: “We believe in the Book; the whole of it is from our Lord”; and none will grasp the Message except men of understanding.
In the past centuries, people sought hidden knowledge from the great Shaykhs, which they denied to give to this people, and who discorded from the Al Jamah and turned into different heretical sects!. The “People of Spiritual Understanding” (ulool albaab) will not give knowledge to those who cannot understand it!. Today their followers harbor malice against Awliya Allah and Ahlul Bayth, because of this distension from the obedience to “Ulool Albaab” and their jealousy and malice against them!.
The Jews were notorious in the time of nabi Isa Ibn Maryam (A.S), today you can see, same attributes in the misguided sects who behave like Pharisees (Jewish priests at the time of Isa alaihissalam).
If you are guided sects, then call your “Ulool albaab” to us, and let’s see who are truthful!
No one take a five year old child to practical anatomy class or to fight in Army to kill another one. Knowledge is given to those who are mature in understanding , and by the Permission of Allah.
The Quran (Word of Allah) is the Book related to all affairs. It is not for everyone to understand everything that is mentioned in the Quran, but understanding of the affairs goes to those who are in authority on earth. See Sura Al Qadr (97:4).
It is clearly stated in Hadith, that those who seek Al Qadr, will become heretics!
THE INHERITORS OF TAWHEED IN THE LINE OF ALLAH-ANGELS-PROPHETS-AND PEOPLE OF KNOWLEDGE:
Quran 3:18 Allah witnesses that there is no deity except Him, and [so do] the angels and those of knowledge – [that He is] maintaining [creation] in justice. There is no deity except Him, the Exalted in Might, the Wise.
THE PEOPLE OF BAI’AH (PLEDGE):
Quran 48:10 Indeed, those who pledge allegiance to you, [O Muhammad] – they are actually pledging allegiance to Allah . The hand of Allah is over their hands. So he who breaks his word only breaks it to the detriment of himself. And he who fulfills that which he has promised Allah – He will give him a great reward.
THEY ARE NOT ON THE PAYROLL OF THEIR FOLLOWERS:
Quran 36:21 Follow those who do not ask of you [any] payment, and they are [rightly] guided.
Quran 9:119 O you who have believed, fear Allah and be with those who are true.
ULOOL ALBAAB-THE LEADERS OF AL JAMAH:
Quran 3:103And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not become divided. And remember the favor of Allah upon you (Also See Quran 1:7]– when you were enemies and He brought your hearts together and you became, by His favor, brothers. And you were on the edge of a pit of the Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus does Allah make clear to you His verses that you may be guided.
People claim to be Ahlu Sunna Wal jamah, just because they follow the Madhab of they follow a creed different to Shia’ism!. They claim to be ahlu sunnah wal jamah because they are based on some worldly institutions under some external scholars!. Quran reject such false claims!
This is a totally nonsense understanding of “Al Jamah” of Ahlu Sunnah!
According to the Book of Allah, Ahlu Sunnah are those upon Spiritual fellowship!
Quran 4:69 All who obey Allah and the messenger are in the company of those on whom is the Grace of Allah,- of the prophets (who teach), the sincere (lovers of Truth), the witnesses (who testify), and the Righteous (who do good): Ah! what a beautiful fellowship!
Hadith Number 3713, Jami At-Tirmidhi Vol 6, Darussalam Publications (Saudi Wahhabi Publications)The Position of Imam Ali (A.S) in Islam:
Abu Sariha, or Zaid bin Arqam -Shu’bah had doubt -narrated , from the Prophet (salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam): “For Whomever I am his Mawla then Ali is his Mawla.” (Sahih)
“Hassan and Hussain are the chiefs of the youth of Paradise”- Sahih ,Tirmidhi
“Abu Bakar and Umar are the leaders of the elders of the Paradise” Tirmidhi
They have Abu Bakar Siddiq (R.A) Umar (R.A) Usman (R.A), Imam Ali (R.A), Imam Hassan (R.A), Imam Hussain (R.A) as their leaders, and Pious Shaykhs from the Ahlul Bayth who follow this Creed as stated.
So everyone’s heart is busy with their masters and leaders, some are busy with false leaders, and false Imams, some people’s heart are busy with their own self, their wife, their wives, children or wealth!
The People of Spiritual brotherhood:
Sahih Muslim: Abu Huraira (R.A) reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace and blessing be upon him) observed: You shall not enter Paradise so long as you do not affirm belief (in all those things which are the articles of faith)and you will not believe as long as you do not love one another. Should I not direct you to a thing which, if you do, will foster love amongst you: (i. e.) give currency to (the practice of paying salutation to one another by saying) as-salamu alaikum. (Book 1, Hadith 96)
ULOOL ALBAAB: SELFLESS LOVERS
There are many scholars, who preach but does not practice what they preach!. Selfless love for the Muslim brothers is one of the attributes of Ulool Albaab (People of Spiritual understanding).
They represent:” Rahmatan lil Alameen”, being Kind and Merciful to whole world!
They are the legitimate leaders and scholars of this religion!
Allah says: Sura Saff 61:2-3 O you who have believed, why do you say what you do not do? Great is hatred in the sight of Allah that you say what you do not do.
So it is not about how much you know from books, or from a University professor or from Masjid Mufti!. But Allah is Looking at your heart, not at your intellectual knowledge or certificates or man made titles!
How much you are sincere to Allah, to His Messenger (s.a.w) to the leaders of the Muslims, how much love you have to your Muslim brother. It’s not about saying: brother bradher in the street today, and tomorrow you see the same person and you don’t remember seeing him yesterday!
Today’s book scholars, not even spreading salams unless they are greeted first!. Their ego became their god and you are taking this ones as leaders, who worship to their own ego!. And you are praying behind those who worship their ego, beside Allah?
ULOOL ALBAAB-THE GROUP THAT ARE ATTENDED BY SPIRIT AND ANGELS: [also see 3:18]
The heavenly supported group:
Quran 97:4 The angels and the Spirit descend thereinby permission of their Lordfor every matter.
Angels and Holy Spirit is not descending to nothing in this world. They are descending to the Ulool ALbaab, to Ulool Ilmi, to Ulool Amri.
Because, Man is the Khalifa (Representative of Allah) on Earth!.
Quran 2:30 And [mention, O Muhammad], when your Lord said to the angels, “Indeed, I will make upon the earth a successive authority.”
The Prophetic and Saintly Lineage of Ulool Ilmi (People of Wisdom): Quran 2:31 And He taught Adam all the names,then showed them to the angels, saying: Inform Me of the names of these, if ye are truthful.
Quran18:65:And they found a servant from among Our servants to whom we had given mercy from us and had taught him from Us a [certain] knowledge.
THIS LINEAGE IS PRESERVED UNTIL THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT IN AN UNBROKEN CHAIN:
Quran 4:59O you who have believed, obeyAllah and obey the Messenger and those in authorityamong you
THE CHOSEN ONES: Quran 3:33 Indeed, Allah chose Adam and Noah and the family of Abraham and the family of ‘Imran over the worlds –
Sahih Muslim Book 35, Number 6505: Abu Huraira (R.A) reported Allah’s (SWT) Apostle (may peace be upon him) as saying Allah (SWT) has mobile (squads) of angels, who have no other work (to attend to but) to follow the assemblies of Dhikr and when they find such assemblies in which there is Dhikr (of Allah (SWT)) they sit in them and some of them surround the others with their wings till the space between them and the sky of the world is fully covered, and when they disperse (after the assembly of Dhikr is adjourned) they go upward to the heaven and Allah (SWT), the Exalted and Glorious, asks them although He is best informed about them: Where have you come from? They say: We come from Thine servants upon the earth who had been glorifying Thee (reciting Subhan Allah (SWT)), uttering Thine Greatness (saying Allah (SWT) o-Akbar) and uttering Thine Oneness (La ilaha ill Allah (SWT)) and praising Thee (uttering al-Hamdu Lillah) and begging of Thee. Be would say: What do they beg of Me? They would say: They beg of Thee the Paradise of Thine. He (God) would say: Have they seen My Paradise? They said: No, our Lord. He would say: (What it would be then) if they were to see Mine Paradise? They (the angels) said: They seek Thine protection. He (the Lord) would say: Against what do they seek protection of Mine? They (the angels) would say: Our Lord, from the Hell-Fire. He (the Lord) would say: Have they seen My Fire? They would say: No. He (the Lord) would say: What it would be if they were to see My Fire? They would say: They beg of Thee forgiveness. He would say: I grant pardon to them, and confer upon them what they ask for and grant them protection against which they seek protection. They (the angels) would again say: Our Lord, there is one amongst them such and such simple servant who happened to pass by (that assembly) and sat there along with them (who had been participating in that assembly). He (the Lord) would say: I also grant him pardon, for they are a people the seat-fellows of whom are in no way unfortunate. –
Sunan Ibn Majah: It was narrated that Abu Hurairah and Abu Sa’eed both bore witness that the Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “No people sit in a gathering remembering Allah,. But the angles surround them, mercy covers them, tranquility descends upon them and Allah remembers them before those who are with Him” Sahih , Hadith Number 3791
The Best Zikr: (See Quran 39:18, read by giving importance to highlighted): Sunan Ibn Majah: Jabir Ibn Abdullah (r.a) said: “I heard the Messenger of Allah (alaihiswalathu wa salam) say: “The best of remembrance is “La Ilaha illa Allah(none has the right to be worshiped but Allah), and the best supplication is “Al-Hamdu Lillah (Praise is to Allah)” Hasan, Hadith Number: 3800
Only in Sufi Tariqah, we have today, in an unbroken lineage to the Holy Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam. The Way of Ulool Amri, Ulool Ilmi and Ulool Albaab.
This sufficient for a believer who learnt in external subjects to understand which is the Straight Path. Opening a Masjid or becoming a community leader, or becoming an Aalim of some books does not make someone guided. Run to seek guided ones, Run to the ways of the Friends of God.
Remember that all 73 sects are reading same Quran , attending Masjids, praying, fasting, going for Hajj, doing many good deeds, many from all these sects are very good people in their outward deeds.
But one has to fix their hears and Purify their Soul. The way of Purification (Tazkiya) only preserved for the people in the way of Awliya Allah (friends of God).
Allah says: [Quran 91:9-10] He has succeeded who purifies it,And he will indeed fail who corrupts it.
“…Beware, in the body there is a piece of flesh; if it is sound, the whole body is sound and if it is corrupt the whole body is corrupt, and hearken it is the heart. (Sahih Muslim Book 10, Hadith 3882)
So be with them, follow them, those who purify the heart with much remembrance of Allah!
Don’t be a fool, don’t remain in the Masjid Ziraarand ways of double standard and hypocrisy, that accept some and reject other parts of the religion of Allah!
Allah says in Quran: 9:107 And [there are] those [hypocrites] who took for themselves a mosque for causing harm and disbelief and division among the believers and as a station for whoever had warred against Allah and His Messenger before. And they will surely swear, “We intended only the best.” And Allah testifies that indeed they are liars.
May Allah Guide us into the Straight Path, the Path of Ulool Amri, Ulool Ilmi and Ulool Albaab,ameen.
Wa salamun alal Mursaleen walhamdulillahi Rabbil Aalameen.

Allahumma Swalli Alaa Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Ala Aali Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Sallim
A WARNING ABOUT QURANISTS:
How will you feel when you find, Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam) himself predicting and warning about Quranists 1400 years ago?
Yes, Allah’s Messenger have spoken about this misguided groups who will emerge in this nation after him.
SUNAN IBN MAJAH:
It was narrated from Miqadam bin Ma’dikarib Al-Kindi that the Messenger of Allah (SwallaAllahu Alaihi WaSallam) said; “Soon there will come a time that a man will be reclining on his pillow ,and when one of my Ahadith is narrated, he will say: “The Book of Allah is (sufficient) between us and you.Whatever it states is permissible we will take as permissible ; and whatever it states is forbidden, we will take as forbidden’. Verily, whatever the Messenger of Allah (SwallaAllahu alaihi WaSallam) has forbidden is like that which Allah has forbidden. (Grade Hasan) (Sunan Ibn Majah , Hadith 12)
It was narrated from Ubaidullah bin Abu Rafi from his father , that the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w) said: “I do not want to find anyone of you reclining on his pillow, and when news comes to him of something that I have commanded or forbidden or forbidden , he says: “I do not know, whatever we find in the book of Allah, we will follow”. (Sahih) Hadith 13, Sunan Ibn Majah
So Allah says: [Quran 3:31] Say: If you love Allah, then follow me, Allah will love you and forgive you your faults, and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
Quran 4:64 We sent not a messenger, but to be obeyed.….
Quran 4:65 But no, by your Lord, they will not [truly] believe until they make you, [O Muhammad], judge concerning that over which they dispute among themselves and then find within themselves no discomfort from what you have judged and submit in [full, willing] submission.
ALLAH FORBIDS FOLLOWING THE HADITH OF THE EGO, INSTEAD OF THE HADITH OF PROPHET (S.A.W):
[Quran 25:43]Have you seen the one whose god is his own ego? Will you be his advocate?
[Quran 45:23] Have you noted the one whose god is his ego? Consequently, God sends him astray, despite his knowledge, seals his hearing and his mind, and places a veil on his eyes. Who then can guide him, after such a decision by God? Would you not take heed?
Quran 24:63.Do not make [your] calling of the Messenger among yourselves as the call of one of you to another. Already Allah knows those of you who slip away, concealed by others. So let those beware who dissent from the Prophet’s order, lest fitnah strike them or a painful punishment.
On the authority of Abu Muhammad Abdullah bin ’Amr bin al-’Aas (may Allah be pleased with him) who said:
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “None of you [truly] believes until his desires are subservient to that which I have brought.” [Imam an-Nawawi says:] We have related it in Kitab al-Hujjah with a saheeh chain of narrators.
Quran [5:92] And obey Allah and obey the Messenger and beware. And if you turn away – then know that upon Our Messenger is only [the responsibility for] clear notification.
Quran 8:20 O you who have believed, obey Allah and His Messenger and do not turn from him while you hear [his order].
Quran 24:52 And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger and fears Allah and is conscious of Him – it is those who are the attainers.
4:59O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messengerand those in authority among you
It Refute Quranists:
This Hadith and Quran verses clearly refute the belief of Quranists. Since Quran is the word of Allah and Obeying only Quran is to Obey Allah, So Allah says to obey the Prophet (s.a.w) which is to accept and follow his words and deeds.
Those who claim they only follow Quran, will not know how they can implement what Allah is Commanding.
So only foolish people claim they follow Allah directly or Quran only!
You cannot become a doctor by just studying anatomy books, you need to study with a qualified teacher,and observe how he is practicing the knowledge.
Quran was sent to the Prophet (s.a.w) , not to Sahaba , Gospel was sent to Jesus Christ (A.S) not to disciples, Torah was sent to Moses (A.S), not to Israelis. So it is by following the words and examples of the Prophet, one will be guided.
It Refute Wahabism/Salafi sects:
The Hadith in Ibn Majah also refute salafi Wahabi heresy!. The Salafis accuse Sufis by saying Sufis making Prophet (s.a.w) equal to Allah (Naudubillah), but the Hadith clearly states, original Salafs believed that the Words of the Prophet (s.a.w) is similar like the words of Allah!
So now, those who seek truth, it is time to Quit Wahhabism and Quranism!
So Wahhabis and Quranists follow the misguided ways according to their own ego!
Escape from it and follow the Way of Prophets and Awliya Allah.
So look at whether you are in the camp of Dajjal or Camp of Isa (A.S). You follow only Quran, you do not follow Hadith and examples of of Nabi Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam?, but you will follow Jesus Christ (A.S) his words and examples when he come second time?
You have no brain, and those who are authorized will finish you off from this earth before Mahdi (A.S) and Messiah (A.S) Comes!
YOU DON’T BELIEVE CHRIST (A.S) WILL COME BACK? BUT QURAN SAYS SO: Quran 4:159 And there is none from the People of the Scripture but that he will surely believe in Jesus before his death. And on the Day of Resurrection he will be against them a witness.
Which means Christ (A.S) will come back to this earth and everyone will believe is a Prophet of Allah, not a begotten son or incarnation of god!
Those who have got intelligence, they will come to the truth and will submit to true way of Islam!
Wa Salamun Alal Mursaleen walhamdulillahi Rabbil Aalameen.
– Jouhar Ali Naqshbandi Al Hassani
Our duty, is not even to go to a war. We are not going to any war. Don’t think that you are going to war. No. Our duty is to declare war to ourselves and to try to save as much people from the wrong directions that they are going to. Everyone is going into a quicksand, we must try to move them out. Much as we can. That time you will feel happy. You will feel comfortable.Everywhere you walk, you are with your Lord. Whatever they say to you, if it is wrong, you don’t hear. You only hear the good things. You only say good things to people, you don’t say bad things to people.
Don’t make no mistake saying: they are Christians or Jews or something else and we are Muslims and we are better than them. No. We don’t know how we are going to come out from this life. Biggest worrying, yes you must worry, we must worry: Is to think how we are going to give the last breath. Are we going to die as a believer or as an unbeliever? You don’t know that. That is hidden. That is hidden to us. So the people that you may look down now, they may go out from this world clean. We don’t know. Maybe they come to Islam tomorrow and they will be perfectly okay. As for us, whatever we do now, if we do good deeds, we receive blessings from it. If we do bad deeds, we are going to receive punishment for it. But if a person is doing such a wrong thing right now and he is not a Muslim, soon as he gives Shahadat, he’s going to be the most clean one. All sins and all wrong things that he did up till now, it’s going to be forgiven. So he’s going to be cleaner than you and I. That is Islam.
Sheykh Effendi calls out to one brother, “ ‘X’, come and sit in front of me. Give me your hand. Now say, ‘Ashadu an-la ilaha il Allah, ve Ashadu anna Muhammadan Abduh ve Rasuluhu. Salallahu Ta’ala Alayhi ve ala Alihi ve Sahbihi ve Sallim.” ‘X’ repeated after Sheykh Effendi, ‘Ashadu an-la ilaha il Allah, ve Ashadu anna Muhammadan Abduh ve Rasuluhu. Ashadu an-la ilaha il Allah, ve Ashadu anna Muhammadan Abduh ve Rasuluhu.’
Salallahu Ta’ala Alayhi ve ala Alihi ve Sahbihi ve Sallim. Allahu, Allahu, Allahu Haqq. Allahu, Allahu, Allahu Haqq. Allahu, Allahu, Allahu Haqq. Al-Fatiha. Congratulations to you. Now, what I have just said, this man is more cleaner than everyone of us here now. All sins, according to what Holy Prophet (asws) is saying to us, according to what Holy Quran is saying: anyone who is giving Shahadat, anything that they did before their lives, everything is forgiven, they are pure like they’ve been born from their mother. They are pure. Now pray for us (Sheykh says to brother ‘X’ who has just taken the Shahdat). Tonight, pray for us, because you are pure, you are more purer than us. Welcome to you.
GREATEST ADVISE OF PROPHET MUHAMMAD (ALAIHISWALATHU WA SALAM) TO PEOPLE OF THE END OF TIMES:
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem.
We are living in the End of Times. This is the time of great trials and tribulations
In the End of times (this times) Dajjal-Anti Christ and his followers commit crimes, injustice oppression and tyranny in the name of Islam.
So this period is known as as the period of great trials and tribulations that is coming against Islam and Muslims in all means.
This is the reason, the Prophet of Allah (Nabi Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam) advising Muslims to stay away from all this groups and sects that make confusion and mischief in the name of Islam.
The forces of Anti-Christ want to oppress whole world and put the blame on Islam and Muslims. So the dark powers have elected people from all religious groups and sects that want to spread atrocities throughout the world, among Muslims Christians and other faiths, then to put the label of “Islam” for the horrible crimes they are committing.
END OF TIMES:BE LIKE PEOPLE OF THE CAVE (ASHAB AL KAHF)
Abu Huraira (R.A) reported Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) as saying: There would be turmoil and the one who would sleep would be better than who would be awake and the one who would be awake would be better than one who would stand and one who would stand would be better than one who would run. So he who finds refuge or shelter should take that refuge or shelter.
(sahih Muslim 6895)
TO MUSLIMS WHO KILL EACH OTHER:
Ahnaf b. Qais reported on the authority of Abu Bakra that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: When two Muslims confront each other with their swords, both the slayer and the slain are doomed to Hell-Fire.
(Sahih Muslim 6899)
THE ADVISE GIVEN TO HUDHAIFA IBN AL YAMAN (R.A):
It has been narrated on the authority of Hudhaifa b. al-Yaman who said: People used to ask the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) about the good times, but I used to ask him about bad times fearing lest they overtake me. I said: Messenger of Allah, we were in the midst of ignorance and evil, and then God brought us this good (time through Islam). Is there any bad time after this good one? He said: Yes. I asked: Will there be a good time again after that bad time? He said: Yes, but therein will be a hidden evil. I asked: What will be the evil hidden therein? He said: (That time will witness the rise of) the people who will adopt ways other than mine and seek guidance other than mine. You will know good points as well as bad points. I asked: Will there be a bad time after this good one? He said: Yes. (A time will come) when there will be people standing and inviting at the gates of Hell. Whoso responds to their call they will throw them into the fire. I said: Messenger of Allah, describe them for us. He said: All right. They will be a people having the same complexion as ours and speaking our language. I said: Messenger of Allah, what do you suggest if I happen to live in that time? He said: You should stick to the main body of the Muslims and their leader. I said: If they have no (such thing as the) main body and have no leader? He said: Separate yourself from all these factions, though you may have to eat the roots of trees (in a jungle) until death comes to you and you are in this state. (Sahih Muslim,Book 020, Hadith 4553)
THE PEOPLE OF DAJJAL AMONG MUSLIMS SAY: “DO NOT FOLLOW AMIR OR IMAM JUST FOLLOW ONLY BOOKS”!!!
It his been narrated through a different chain of transmitters, on the authority of Hudhaifa b. al-Yaman who said: Messenger of Allah, no doubt, we had an evil time (i. e. the days of Jahiliyya or ignorance) and God brought us a good time (i. e. Islamic period) through which we are now living Will there be a bad time after this good time? He (the Holy Prophet) said: Yes. I said: Will there be a good time after this bad time? He said: Yes. I said: Will there be a bad time after good time? He said: Yes. I said: How? Whereupon he said: There will be leaders who will not be led by my guidance and who will not adopt my ways? There will be among them men who will have the hearts of devils in the bodies of human beings. I said: What should I do. Messenger of Allah, if I (happen) to live in that time? He replied: You will listen to the Amir and carry out his orders; even if your back is flogged and your wealth is snatched, you should listen and obey. (Sahih Muslim, Book 020, Hadith 4554)
STAY IN YOUR HOMES OR REMOTE PLACES:
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “there will be afflictions (and at the time) the sitting person will be better than the standing one, and the standing one will be better than the walking, and the walking will be better than the running. And whoever will look towards those afflictions, they will overtake him, and whoever will find a refuge or a shelter, should take refuge in it.” The same narration is reported by Abu Bakr, with the addition, “(The Prophet said), ‘Among the prayers there is a prayer the missing of which will be to one like losing one’s family and property.” (Sahih Bukhari Book 56, Hadith 799)
Narrated Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri: Allah’s Apostle said, “there will come a time when the best property of a Muslim will be sheep which he will take to the tops of mountains and the places of rainfall so as to flee with his religion from the afflictions. (Sahih Bukhari,Book 88, Hadith 210)
SPEND YOUR TIME IN MEDITATION/PRAYERS AND NECESSARY ACTIVITIES:
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “There will be afflictions (and at the time) the sitting person will be better than the standing one, and the standing one will be better than the walking, and the walking will be better than the running. And whoever will look towards those afflictions, they will overtake him, and whoever will find a refuge or a shelter, should take refuge in it.” The same narration is reported by Abu Bakr, with the addition, “(The Prophet said), ‘Among the prayers there is a prayer the missing of which will be to one like losing one’s family and property.” (Bukhari,Book 56, Hadith 799)
Narrated ‘Aisha (R.A): The Prophet (S.A.W) used to say, “O Allah! I seek refuge with You from laziness from geriatric old age, from being in debt, and from committing sins. O Allah! I seek refuge with You from the punishment of the Fire, the afflictions of the grave, the punishment in the grave, and the evil of the affliction of poverty and from the evil of the affliction caused by Al-Masih Ad-Dajjal. O Allah! Wash away my sins with the water of snow and hail, and cleanse my heart from the sins as a white garment is cleansed of filth, and let there be a far away distance between me and my sins as You have set far away the East and the West from each other.” (Bukhari,Book 75, Hadith 386)
STAY AWAY FROM AFFLICTIONS:
Know that everything that you are busy with is going to end up in afflictions other than it is for the sake of Allah and His Prophet (s.a.w), because in this days, there is no ruling according to the Quran and Sunnah of Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam). So it is obligatory for Muslims to stay away from all this groups and sects that call you to streets and cities.
SIT DO NOT MOVE INTO THIS CORRUPTIONS:
Narrated Abu Huraira(R.A): Allah’s Apostle (S.A.W) said, “There will be afflictions (in the near future) during which a sitting person will be better than a standing one, and the standing one will be better than a walking one, and the walking one will be better than a running one, and whoever will expose himself to these afflictions, they will destroy him. So whoever can find a place of protection or refuge from them, should take shelter in it.” (Book 88, Hadith 203)
You have seen, many orthodox Jews does not mix with others, they do not go into streets much. They stay away and remain busy with what concern them. Because they know it is not a wise thing to expose themselves to this afflictions.
Do not run to join different political and religious groups that are busy with fighting each other and boasting about their false hood. They are not tightly holding to the Book of Allah and Traditions of the Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam).
Stay with people of Zikr (People of Tariqah) and Sohbet (association of spiritual seekers), this is the only place where you find peace,safety and tranquility.
THANK ALLAH AND BE KIND TO THOSE WHO ARE AFFLICTED BY TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS (i.e SYRIANS, IRAQIS, PALESTINIANS, AND OTHER PEOPLE OF THE WORLD)
Malik related to me that he heard that Isa ibn Maryam used to say, “Do not speak much without the mention of Allah for you will harden your hearts. A hard heart is far from Allah, but you do not know. Do not look at the wrong actions of people as if you were lords. Look at your wrong actions as if you were slaves. Some people are afflicted by wrong action and some people are protected from it. Be merciful to the people of affliction and praise Allah for His protection.” (Muwatta Book 56, Hadith 56.3.8)
If you follow this advise of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), then you will be successful in this world and hereafter. Whoever disobey the Messenger of Allah (alaihiswalathu wa salam), they will be losers in this world and hereafter.
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “whoever obeys me, obeys Allah, and whoever disobeys me, disobeys Allah, and whoever obeys the ruler I appoint, obeys me, and whoever disobeys him, disobeys me.” (Sahih Bukhari,Book 89, Hadith 251)
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “All my followers will enter Paradise except those who refuse.” They said, “O Allah’s Apostle! Who will refuse?” He said, “whoever obeys me will enter Paradise, and whoever disobeys me is the one who refuses (to enter it).” (Sahih Bukhari, Book 92, Hadith 384)
So Allah Says: [Quran 24:63]…So let those beware who dissent from the Prophet’s order, lest fitnah strike them or a painful punishment.
STAY TOGETHER WITH THE AHLUL BAITH- THE PROGENY OF PROPHET MUHAMMAD (alaihiswalathu wa salam)
Finally: Tabarani narrates from Abu Dhar, who said: I heard the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam say:‘The example of my Ahl al-Bait within you is the example of the Ark of Nuh within the nation of Nuh; whoever boarded it was saved and whoever stayed behind was destroyed. It is also the example of the ‘Hitha’ of the Bani Isra’eel.’ [Tabarani in Al-Awsat, Vol. 4, Page 283, Hadith 3506 | Mustadrak al-Hakim, Vol. 2, Page 427, Hadith 3312]
Hadith jami at-Tirmidi ,Darussalam Publications (Wahhabi publications)
-Hadith Number 3788: The Messenger of Allah (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “Indeed, I am leaving among you, that which if you hold fast to them, you shall not be misguided after me, one of them is greater than the other:The Book of Allah is a rope extended from the sky to the earth, and my family -the people of my house-and they shall not split until they meet me at Hawd, so look at how you deal with them after me” (Sahih)
So Allah says: “It is not fit for a believer, man or woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allah and Messenger has indeed strayed in a plain manner.” (33:36)
The Prophet (s.a.w) is advising for your own benefit in this world and hereafter. So be among intelligent ones. Do not be among foolish people.
Do not be among hypocrites , who chose to love some and hate some, for example some people love Imam Hussain (R.A) and hate Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani (Q.S), or others. Some people love so and so ahlul baith and hate so and so ahlul bayth.
And whatsoever the Messenger gives you, take it, and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it), and fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Severe in punishment.” (59:7)
“But no, by your Lord, they can have no (real) faith until they make you (Muhammad) judge in all disputes between them, and find in their souls no resistance against your decisions, but accept them with the fullest conviction.” (4:65)
“O you who believe! Obey Allah and obey the Messenger, and those of you who are in authority. If you differ in anything amongst yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger if you believe in Allah and the Last Day. This is better and more suitable for final determination.” (4:59)
“And obey Allah and His Messenger, and do not dispute (with each other), lest you lose courage and your strength depart, and be patient. Surely, Allah is with those who are patient.” (8:46)
Daylmi narrates from Sayyiduna Abu Sa’eed that the beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa ala Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Baaraka wa Sallam said‘My Ahl ul Bait and the Ansaar are my wealth, my body, my household and my family, the locus of my happiness and my trust. So accept the good deeds of their good and overlook the mistakes of any of them (not from the Hudood of Allah).’ [Daylami in Al-Firdaws, Vol. 1, Page 407, Hadith 1645]
This is sufficient for wise people to listen to and to obey.
Religion is to “Listen and Obey”, not to listen and abandon, nor to ignore.
Allah says: [2:285] ….And they say, “We hear and we obey. [We seek] Your forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the [final] destination.”
“The only saying of the faithful believers, when they are called to Allah and His Messenger, to judge between them, is that they say, “We hear and we obey.” And such are the successful. And whosoever obeys Allah and His Messenger, fears Allah, and keeps his duty, such are the successful.” (24:51-52)
“And be not as those who divided and differed among themselves after the clear proofs had come to them.” (3:105)
DO NOT FOLLOW YOUR EGO AFTER KNOWLEDGE HAS COME TO YOU:
Quran 25:43 Have you seen the one whose god is his own ego? Will you be his advocate?
Quran 45:23 Have you noted the one whose god is his ego? Consequently, God sends him astray, despite his knowledge, seals his hearing and his mind, and places a veil on his eyes. Who then can guide him, after such a decision by God? Would you not take heed?
Wa Salamun Alal Mursaleen walhamdulillahi Rabbil Aalameen
Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim
Our Grandshaykh says we must be careful that Satan does not make our worship unacceptable. It is unacceptable when we are asking for any rewards. We must ask for our Lord’s pleasure only.
When all the ego’s desires are finished, then one is a servant of the Lord.
To look for some reward for worshipping is like idol worship, it is a secret form of polytheism. Sincerityis to ask only your Lord’s service. So many people are worshiping and then doing what their ego demands.
This means that they are servants of Allah and of Satan. It is a dangerous way. Until we become clean of bad character we can’t be free of Satan, this world, our egos, and vain desires.
Until you become fully aware for each you make with your foot, whether that step is on the right way or the wrong way, you remain in need of alignment in your heart.
You must know and be awake to where you are putting your foot. One second’s heedlessness may be cause a dangerous accident.
Therefore, we are always in need to repeat the word of Testification, to put us on the right way. Until we become free of bad character, we cannot attain to real faith; and without real faith, then there is no real life, the life that is forever. Whoever realizes real faith in this world will live on in the tomb, his body not turning to dust. That is a sign from God that he or she has reached true life.

THE SHAYKH (SPIRITUAL GUIDE) AND MURID (DISCIPLE)
in the Naqshbandi Tariqah-The Way of Awliya Allah (Friends of Allah).
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem.
Allahumma Swalli Ala Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Ala Aali Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Sallim.
Our way is through association and goodness is in the gatherings. Grand Sheikh use to say this always, our way… He took these words from Shah Naqshband Our way is through association & goodness is in the gatherings. Our way works through association. Once you do Sohbat – you throw the seeds, for example, if you do not water them & the mercy does not rain on them, the seeds rot & disappear.
Our way, the origin of our way to move & to work is through association. Keep this always…on your mouth.
“Religion is advice” (Hadith)The Grand Sheikhs took from that ocean. Our religion is based on advice, it is an ocean. There are no limits for that ocean. Sheikh Effendi took from that ocean.
Our way is through association, it came from that ocean. Our way does not work without association. Meaning a person on his own reciting awrad, he will never reach anywhere. For training the murids & to prepare them and to present them in The Divine Presence and to dress them with their station is through Sohbat. “Religion is advice.” (Hadith) What is advice? It is to ask somebody’s goodness & benefit. Advice… All the Prophets (as) came down with an advice. All of them were advising. Those who were accepting the advice they accepted, those who did not were rolling down to hell.
What keeps religion on its feet, is advice. That is why when two believers meet, they must give an association in the period of milking two goats. Believers when they meet they must speak. Leave empty talking. You can speak something but at least within it, there must be some advice in it.
To put an advice within the words. Advice.. it gives our words some power. It gives some sweetness to our faith. It gives some power & some strength, therefore “religion is advice.” (Hadith) And our way is through association, from there Shah Naqshband took these words. Our way is the way of association; through giving talk & listening. Who knows how, speaks… And the others must listen.
To give & take. The Sheikh gives & the mureeds take. If not, if there is no Sheikh, there are no mureeds. The mureed does not know anything. The one who reaches the mureeds, is the Sheikh. How to reach them is through association. This is not through the stick. It is not by beating, by stick, but association with the guide is a thousand times more powerful than the stick. Sultan Al Awliya’ used to say like this. Sheikh Abdullah Al Daghestani, our Sheikh, our Master, and the Grand Sheikhs, he is the last link of the Golden Chain of the Naqshibandi Sufi Order. He is the seal of the chain.
FROM TIMBER TO BE THE THRONE OF THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH (PEACE AND BLESSINGS OF ALLAH BE UPON HIM)
SEEKER IS LIKE A TIMBER:
Who does not get his seal can never be a Sheikh and cannot be even a mureed, and will not understand anything to speak. Becoming logs of wood. If the wood does not go through the hands of the carpenter it remains a log. The only benefit is in the fireplace. But if it goes through the hands of the carpenter then it is dressed with character. The wood first is taken from the tree & cut into timber. The timber according to the imagination & drawings of carpenter becomes various forms. They call him a carpenter. There are 2 kinds of carpenters. The first makes furniture the other one prepares timber, maybe windows & doors. That one cannot do the work of the carpenter for furniture. And the other one does not interfere in the work of the one who prepares timber.
It is like this. A person/Insan needs carving, otherwise he is like wild wood, if it sits 100 years it remains timber. But once it reaches the hands of the master carpenter that timber is transformed into many kinds of furniture. How many household furniture and even outdoors the carpenter can turn the wood into. But first it goes in the hands of the Master carpenter. Otherwise it sits 40 years as it is. Advice shapens the timber & the wood of our ego and the carpenter used to hold it & look if it is straight or not in the old times. The carpenter, then later if it is not straight he takes the file and smoothes it till it is straight and smooth. It needs a Master carpenter, the furniture.
From timber you can make so many things, and the timber comes from the trees. The trees, you can take the timber from it & that timber in the hands of the Master carpenter becomes something and gives some use to mankind at the same time; they like it & ornament it and take pride in it. And that hand craft continues & develops. He becomes a master of this handcraft…
And continues to carve & to file the mureeds & he looks. He looks like this, like that… till he is straight & soft. That is why Allah Almighty said “Fastaqim Kama Umirta” (Be straight as you are commanded, 11:112). Prophet (saws) said “Surat Hud turned me gray.” “Surat Hud turned me gray.” Why? The majesty & glory of that Holy Verse turned the blessed beard of the Prophet (saws) into grey. Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! O our Lord You know best. O our Lord You know best! Two people they may sit, greet each other and give some benefit to their beings. It gives benefit to both sides, no empty talking.
No empty work & no nonsense in Islam. In Islam the Tariqa has all the control & arrangement of everything that happens between the saints, the Sheikhs, and those who are following them from among the dervishes & mureeds. To be on the way it is in the Tariqa. Otherwise they remain like wood, timber laying down. It is just timber. They are timber.
There! What can you say… “I am laying there as timber”. “You are timber!” “And the furniture that reached the Palace of the Sultan came from me!” “O no, ask the furniture in the Palace that reached the Sultan how much treatment it went through before it reached the Palace of the Sultan. Otherwise they will carry the timber on their shoulders to the Palace of the Sultan. Ask the furniture in the Palace how much treatment it went through to be trained, to be fit for the honour of being furniture for the King. Therefore mankind is continuously in need of training.
“Wa Dhakkir” (51:55) “Wa Dhakkir Fa’inna dh-Dhikra Tanfa`u l-Mu’minina”(51:55) They say sharpen, carve…remind. Every remembrance is similar to shaping, to soften & straighten the wood. “And remind for verily, the reminding profits the believers.” (51:55) “And remind for verily, the reminding profits the believers.” (51:55) Wa Min Allahi t Tawfiq, Fatiha.
We spoke about one spot only The writing that you can take from a small ink bottle is something,the writing of a bigger ink bottle is something else. And then the big barrel can write completely something else. The writing that you can take from a sea is different than the writing that you can take from an ocean. An ocean. A writing from an ocean is completely something else. O our Lord, we thank You. O our Lord thank You.
WHERE WE ARE:
“We are on a ship and it is going to sink down, and coming from above is a hook for linking. Who is reaching there [to the link/hook] is being saved and is going up, not sinking down. Therefore, our material being one day must also sink down. Ṭūbā [good tidings / blessedness]! Never-ending good tidings are for those who are asking and reaching through that link, and that link smoothly, smoothly taking him up, leaving physical being to sink, but sending our souls up.
Give daily for your Lord a most honored servant-hood. It is not important to collect the treasures of this world, or to reach highest degrees for this life’s honor. When your ship sinks down, honor of this world will finish. It will only be written on a stone, ‘That was majestic king, a majestic queen, His Highness, His Excellence, President (so-and-so), most high pope, chief, rabbi’. Only that stone and nothing else will be with you.”

TO FOLLOW THE IMAMS AND SHAYKHS OF THE SIILSILA (CHAIN/ISNAD)
Allah says in Quran: Sura Nisa (4:59): O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you. And if you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is the best [way] and best in result.
FOLLOWING THE EGO (MAKING TAQLEED OF THE SELF) LEAD A PERSON TO ASTRAY:
Quran 25:43 Have you seen the one whose god is his own ego? Will you be his advocate?
Quran 45:23 Have you noted the one whose god is his ego? Consequently, God sends him astray, despite his knowledge, seals his hearing and his mind, and places a veil on his eyes. Who then can guide him, after such a decision by God? Would you not take heed?
36:21 Follow those who ask of you no fee, and who are rightly guided.
WHO ARE THEY?, THEY ARE THOSE UPON WHOM CHARITY (ZAKAT) IS FORBIDDEN:
They ask of you no fee (36:21) by Allah’s Command, not by their own desires.
Yazid b. Hayyan reported, I went along with Husain b. Sabra and ‘Umar b. Muslim to Zaid b. Arqam and, as we sat by his side, Husain said to him: Zaid. you have been able to acquire a great virtue that you saw Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) listened to his talk, fought by his side in (different) battles,offered prayer behind me. Zaid, you have in fact earned a great virtue. Zaid, narrate to us what you heard from Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him). He said: I have grown old and have almost spent my age and I have forgotten some of the things which I remembered in connection with Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him), so accept whatever I narrate to you, and which I do not narrate do not compel me to do that. He then said: One day Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) stood up to deliver sermon at a watering place known as Khumm situated between Mecca and Medina. He praised Allah, extolled Him and delivered the sermon and. exhorted (us) and said: Now to our purpose. O people, I am a human being. I am about to receive a messenger (the angel of death) from my Lord and I, in response to Allah’s call, (would bid good-bye to you), but I am leaving among you two weighty things: the one being the Book of Allah in which there is right guidance and light, so hold fast to the Book of Allah and adhere to it. He exhorted (us) (to hold fast) to the Book of Allah and then said: The second are the members of my household I remind you (ofyour duties) to the members of my family.He (Husain) said to Zaid: Who are the members of his household? aren’t his wives the members of his family? Thereupon he said: His wives are the members ofhis family (but here) the members of his family are those for whom acceptance of Zakat is forbidden. And he said: Who are they? Thereupon he said: ‘Ali and the offspring of ‘Ali, ‘Aqil and the offspring of ‘Aqil and the offspring of Ja’far and the offspring of ‘Abbas. Husain said: These are those for whom the acceptance ofZakat is forbidden. Zaid said: Yes. (Sahih Muslim,Book 031, Hadith 5920)
Hadith jami at-Tirmidi ,Darussalam Publications (Salafi publications) Hadith Number 3788:The Messenger of Allah (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: “Indeed, I am leaving among you, that which if you hold fast to them, you shall not be misguided after me, one of them is greater than the other:The Book of Allah is a rope extended from the sky to the earth, and my family -the people of my house-and they shall not split until they meet me at Hawd, so look at how you deal with them after me”(Sahih)
And anyone authorized by them:
On the authority of Tameem ibn Aus ad-Daree (ra): The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “The deen (religion) is naseehah (advice, sincerity).” We said, “To whom?” He (ﷺ) said, “To Allah, His Book, His Messenger, and to the leaders of the Muslims and their common folk.” [Sahih Muslim/40 Hadith Imam Nawawi]
