Maulana Sheikh NazimThe Heart of a Believer Is Allah's Throne

(Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, la ilaaha illa-Llah, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, wa lillahi ‘l-hamd! La ilaha illa-Llah, Sayyidina Muhammad Rasulullah (s). Allahu akbar kabeera w'alhamdulillahi katheera wa subhaanallahi bukratan wa aseela. La ilaaha illa-Llah Sayyidina Muhammadan Rasulullah (s) f 'aktub shahaadatina `indaka ya Sayyidi ‘l-awwaleen wa ‘l-akhireen.

We are humbly asking from most the honored one in the Divine Presence that to be written our kalimatu ‘s-shahaada in his holy presence. We are asking forgiveness for every wrong action, wrong speaking, wrong thinking and wrong doing. We are asking forgiveness and blessings from the Lord of Heavens. As-salaamu `alaykum yaa Sayyidina, yaa Qutb uz-Zamaan that this world is under his command and his command coming from heavens and heavens’ commands coming from divine levels. Ooh, give us O our Master, through your spirituality, a good understanding. If you are not granting us that understanding, we are never going to understand anything. Huuu..., Huuu..., Huuu..., Huuu. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

No one knows who He is. It is impossible; no possibility to know about our Creator. Only Allah Almighty granting something to His most beloved and honored, glorified servant, according to His most beloved servant’s understanding level. The Seal of Prophet’s level impossible to reach for any prophet or any angel. And we are asking something that had been granted to the master of this planet, Qutb, to grant us something for understanding. That is our Lord’s Generosity, and our Lord’s Generosity is His Divine Attribute that belongs to the Lord’s Divine Being.

O People, as-salaamu `alaykum. We must try day by day to learn, if learning for understanding. If understanding, to use our efforts for reaching that open for Mankind from heavenly oceans. SubhanAllah. Whole glory and majesty for the Lord of whole creation. This is a holy night. When Allah Almighty granting, a holiness for anything going to that holy one. And this month is a holy month and also tonight is last Friday night of Dhul Qa`dah, that just honored by their Lord Almighty Allah. Therefore, O People, when our Lord giving honor to something, you must give honor. That is very important point, that mostly people are heedless or ignorant or on the level of animals. That attribute from the Lord of Heavens coming and He is granting anyone any honor and any glory and any highness-level with heavenly attributes. Now this world can’t carry a person who is granted from the Lord of Heavens something that belongs to heavenly stations. May Allah forgive us.

As-salaamu `alaykum our listeners. Don’t say, “We are listening to such a person.” No. If you are saying this, you never going to get up from your physical being to arise towards heavens. Don’t say, “Shaykh is speaking.” No, no, that is an attribute that granted to people of heavens whom they are on heavenly levels. As attribute, they may do this; they may send from their spiritual power, may reach in just a moment or smaller, smaller, smaller, their speed on heavens, never going to be like speed of Mankind. But Allah Almighty granting to His chosen creatures that they are Children of Adam such an ability or capacity that from heavenly stations they may reach to people whom they have been appointed to be deputies of the Lord of Heavens.

Allah Allah, SubhanAllah, maa` azhama shaanak, O our Lord. And we are saying now a`oodhu billaahi min ash-Shaytaani ‘r-rajeem. Say and seriously give your hearing, so that holy addressings may come to your clean hearing and entering through your mind, and then running into your heart. When you are reaching that point, then what coming from heavens to our minds, then to heart, then coming to heart and getting over your mind. When heart is opening for accepting holy things about heavens and heavenly levels, going to be your heart sultan. Commonly people, they are born, their hearts locked but their minds open, according to their capacities also. When growing up and your mind getting such a power from heavens, going not to be able to carry that secret powers, then knocking on the heart.

Heart from inside, asking, “Who is that one?”
“I am nothing.”
“If you are nothing, come in. ‘I’ finished, come in!”

Therefore, whom they have such a being following their egos, their heart never getting to be opened. Therefore, when that heavenly power reaching and our minds not going to be able to carry, then coming to our heart and heart opening. Heart, as it is mentioned through whole holy books, is the throne of Sultan; the throne of Sultan, your heart is opening. When opening, sultan getting in. I am not saying Sultan, that Divine Attribute. Never! Only as a name, sultan of our hearts. If you are asking, “Where is Allah?” don’t say "He is on `Arsh" or "He is in heavens" or "He is everywhere." Don’t say, don’t give ishaarat, any sign. You may say, "The Lord of Heavens is through the hearts of His deputies." Therefore, whole body has no meaning if we haven’t a heart; no meaning for our beings because you are deputy for what? Because the Lord of Heavens saying "Qalbu ‘l-mu’min `arshullah - Heart of My servant, My Divine Throne is there.”

No one knows real heart, what it is. It is not what we have, a piece of meat, no. Who is commanding you? That command coming from heavens, and going to be representative from holy throne of the Lord of Heavens and Allah Almighty’s thrones, one or a thousand or millions, billions; He knows! But don’t think that His real throne, whole creation can carry that one. No, no! That belongs to Allah, only for Him. Why we are saying qalbu ‘l-mu’min arshullah? A ray from the Holy Throne of the Lord of Heavens reaching there and giving a lightening in it, according to the power of that servant.

Don’t think that Allah Almighty’s Throne like the throne of Bilqees. You know Bilqees, the Queen of Sheba? In just a moment, just carried from her palace and was in front of Sayyidina Sulayman (a). If that throne was really of Queen of Sheba, no one can carry it, but not really for her. It was a grant from the Lord of Heavens. Bilqees, Queen of Sheba’s throne, was only was a symbol. Therefore, taking and quickly putting there. When I am reciting the story of Bilqees Queen of Sheba, about her throne, I am surprising huwa `an `azheematu ‘sh-shaan, Holy Qur’an, the Lord’s speech to people. When Sulayman (a) asking, “Who may bring to me that throne?” one jinn saying, “O our Lord, before you are standing up from your holy throne and sitting, I am bringing it here to you!”

Arab and other nations, you are so proud, saying, “We know something.” You are so proud to be written at the beginning of your names, “Dr.” Where is your knowledge? You are not reciting, Salafi people! Salafi and Wahabi people, leave that bida`a, bida`a, b’ud`a, ta`allamoo min al qurani ‘l-kareem - (learn from the Glorious Quran). Don’t say, that is bida`, that is mushrik, that is kaafir, that is haraam! I am asking from you. I am not claiming that I know, no. I am only lowest standard person. I am not saying, “I am something.” But you are saying, “We know everything. Holy Qur’an knowledge we know, Ahl as-Sunnah not knowing. Wahabi people knowing.” Or Salafi people saying, “We know Qur’an.” Haah, you know? Open that chapter and read, recite Holy Qur’an what Allah Almighty saying about `alim.

The time of Sayyidina Sulayman (a), wa qaala ‘lladhi indahu `ilmun min al-kitaab. I am speaking kalaam faadi (empty words)? You bring another word and say to people. (Mawlana very angry.) YOU ARE ANGRY WITH ME, ANGELS ANGRY WITH YOU! I AM SPEAKING HAQQ!

قَالَ الَّذِي عِندَهُ عِلْمٌ مِّنَ الْكِتَابِ أَنَا آتِيكَ بِهِ قَبْلَ أَن يَرْتَدَّ إِلَيْكَ طَرْفُكَ
Qaal alladhee `indahu `ilmun mina ‘l-kitaabi ana aateeka bihi qabla an yartadda ilayk tarfuka - Said one who had knowledge of the book, ‘I will bring it to you in the twinkling of an eye!’” (27:40)

(Mawlana Shaykh stands.) Qur’an or not? Where is your `ilm?! Where is your knowledge?! Do you think that what just granted to Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)? (Mawlana shaykh sits, looks fiercely into camera, pointing his finger.) Don’t say, “We are knowing something,” or I am making my shikwah; I am COMPLAINING (ABOUT) YOU IN THE DIVINE PRESENCE! Keep your tongues to say, “This halaal, that haraam.” You can’t say that! Prophet (s) was saying al halaalu bayyinu wa ‘l-haraamu bayyin. Qul haatoo burhanakum (halaal, the permitted, is clear and haraam, the forbidden, is clear. Bring your proof [if indeed you are truthful]). Which thing preventing, not to say salaat `ala an-nabiyy, salawaatu sharifa or dhikr or tariqah?! And Allah Almighty saying:

وَأَلَّوِ اسْتَقَامُوا عَلَى الطَّرِيقَةِ لَأَسْقَيْنَاهُم مَّاء غَدَقًا
wa law istiqaamu `ala at-tareeqati la asqaynaahum ma’an ghadaqa - "If they (the Pagans) had (only) remained on the (right) Way, We should certainly have bestowed on them Rain in abundance. (72:16)

You are saying no tariqat in Islam; look in Holy Qur’an what saying. Astaghfirullah, tawbah ya Rabbee, tawbah astaghfirullah! That is true, that is like an ocean. Don’t think that I am looking (in) books and addressing people. O People, you also take your care! If not giving value to what you are hearing, heavenly anger may touch you. May Allah forgive us. Astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah.

What about the throne of the Lord of Heavens? Allah Allah, Allahu akbar `ala man takabbar wa tajabbar (Allah is greater than the one who is arrogant; and who is oppressive) Ism`a wa `atee - Hear and obey! You are looking yourself so high and that I am so small one. But I am such an atom that you may be like a continent but you are nothing in front of an atom's power.

(Mawlana Shaykh sings.)

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, `Azeez Allah
Dome dome dome dome 8x

(Mawlana Shaykh stands.) O our Lord, grant us some lights for understanding for the honor of the Seal of Prophets, Muhammad (s). (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

May Allah forgive us. Don’t think that everyone (is) like you and you are looking yourself over (above) whole people. Some people may be like an atom; when it explodes, taking all of you away.

Tawbah ya Rabbee, tawbah ya Rabbee, tawbah astaghfirullah, tawbah ya Rabbee, tawbah ya Rabbee, tawbah astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah.
Dome dome dome dome 8x

They may grant to me to bring a commentary about that wazeer of Sayyidina Sulayman (a), that he said to him: “Oh King Sulayman, I can bring it,” wa qaala ‘lladhee `indahu `ilmu mina ‘l -kitaab, kitaab ur-rusula, Sayyidina Muhammad (s). What do you think, (is) King Sulayman’s (a) book more important or Holy Qur’an more important? That person taking such a power through King Sulayman’s holy book. Where are our `ulama to take something from Holy Qur’an to make this world zilzaal, shaking. Always through my heart coming this. Keep your adab with heavenly ones, you should reach such a secret powers. As long as you are so proud, you never reaching anything.

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, `Azeez Allah
Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Subhaan Allah
Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Sultaan Allah
Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Subhaan Allah

Ya `Afuw, forgive us Yaa Rabbana, for the honor of this honored night and the honor of your most glorified and most honored one in Your Divine Presence. Fatihah.
