  1. As-Salaam alaikum, In the universal religion of Islam, there are 3 dimensions that encompass the outward and inward expressions of the belief system. These 3 dimensions are:-- (1) Islam:-- This is based on Tawheed (belief in the Oneness and Uniqueness of Allah); five daily prayers, offering of Zakkat (almsgiving), fasting in the Holy month of Ramadan, and performing pilgrimage to Makkah. These are known as the 5 pillars of Islam.... the building blocks of the domain of knowledge, which later came to be called Islamic Jurisprudence or Shari'ah. (2) Imaan (faith):--- is the second
  2. As-Salaam alaikum, Receiving spiritual teaching from a distance came to be called the Uwaisi Transmission of Knowledge, [so named] after the contemporary of the Prophet Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, Uwais al-Qarni (r.a) whom Allah would teach the Prophet's Sunnah from a distance; He would show him the event unfolding in the Prophet's life [in Madinah] even though he lived in Yemen. Teaching someone spiritually can be done by an Angel, a Prophet or a Wali, all of which reside in the same unseen world, Barzakh. The Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, confirmed the reality of receivin
  3. As-Salaam alaikum, It was narrated by Ahmad and others on the authority of Abu Talha al-Ansari, may Allah be pleased with him, that the Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, came one day with a smile on his face. So we said: "O Messenger of Allah, we see a smile on your face! He said, "An angel approached me and told me, 'O Muhammad, will it please you [to know] that Allah says that nobody sends prayers upon you from your community except that I send 10 prayers upon him. Neither does anybody from your community send blessings upon you except that I send 10 blessings upon him'?
  4. As-Salaam alaikum, The ritual prayer, as-Sallah, is the most central ritual of Islam. The Holy Qur'an shows us that Sallah forms the foundation of all worship, and it si by means of Sallah (prayer) that man responds to the Divine Summoning:-- " there is no god but I So serve Me (only), And establish regular prayer for celebrating My Praises" (20:14) Thus prayer enables man to realize the meaning of his existence:-- "And I did not create the jinn and mankind except that they may worship Me." (51:56) Required 5 times a day, the prayer sanctifies the daily
  5. As-Salaam alaikum, The Reality of Allah Tabaraka Wa Ta'ala is His Existence which is really His Dhat. The Absolute Existence has no form, no shape, no limitation, neither beginning nor end; and in spite of this, He has manifested Himself in different shapes without any change in His Dhat. It is like a person surrounded by mirrors of different sizes, makes and colours appearing in the mirrors, without any change in his own personality. Al'aan Kama Kana- 'He is as he was' Allah Ta'ala is unknown and unknowable. His Attributes alone are known... but a
  6. As-Salaam alaikum, "And remember your Lord by your tongue and within yourself, humbly and in tearful submission, without loud voice, in the mornings and evenings; and be not among the neglectful." (7:205) As we sit to remember our Creator, the Lord of the Cosmos, sometimes we silently chant His Name, Allah, Allah, Allah.. sometimes 'Subhanallah' (Praised be Allah)..sometimes 'Alhamdulillah (All thanks be to Allah)... other times..'Astaghfirullah.... La-ilaha illallah... This Zikr... this remembrance entombs the body t
  7. As-Salaam alaikum, The Sufi way is firmly built upon 2 foundations: Islam or Submission to Allah (the practice of the Shari'a) and Imaan (assent in the heart to the basic Islamic teachings concerning Allah, Prophecy and the Last Day). Once a person has gained sufficient ground in these 2 dimensions, then Sincerity, love and spiritual protection can develop. Briefly, the Sufi path is the attempt to achieve Ihsan or spiritual perfection. It is to try "to try to worship Allah as if you see Him." Eventually, sincerity and love may take the seeker to the place where the "as if" ceases t

  9. As-Salaam alaikum, The attached booklet titled 'BRIDGE TO ETERNITY', by the late Sheikh Nazim Adil Haqqani, may Allah be Merciful to him, is a collection of the Sheikh's Sohbets or association Lectures held in different places during his life on the planet earth. These are talks from the heart which inspire spiritual radiation, insight and help us peep into the Secrets of Divinity. Do examine the booklet, you will be glad you did. Many Regards. Bridge to Eternity..pdf
  10. As-Salaam alaikum, Ayat 80 of Surat Nisa'i of the Holy Qur'an reads:-- "WHOSO OBEYS THE MESSENGER, OBEYS ALLAH." (4:80)... and the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, himself said:-- "I HAVE LEFT 2 THINGS AMONGST YOU. AS LONG AS YOU KEEP THEM GRASPED FIRMLY, YOU WILL NOT GO ASTRY. [They are] ALLAH'S BOOK AND MY SUNNAH". (Jami'ul Bayan) In view of all this, it is my pleasure to invite your attention to the attached brief but important booklet by Sheikh Yusuf Motola titled: 'OBEDIENCE TO THE MESSENGER, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam'. It takes us through what it means to OB
  11. As-Salaam alaikum, Allah's creation, says Sayyadi Ibn al-Arabi, may Allah be Merciful to him, is the 'Breath of the All-Merciful' because the All-Merciful designates the godhead as overflowing goodness, manifestation and creativity. Breath is the stuff of speech, so Allah, like us, speaks by articulating His breath. Our spoken words are nothing but our breath, and our breath is nothing but ourselves. So also the All-Merciful's words are nothing but His Breath, and His Breath is himself. Without his Breath, Tabaraka Wa Ta'ala, there would be no words, no creatures. The Universe is sim
  12. As-Salaam alaikum, We have read it in Surat Ahzab of the Holy Qur'an, where Allah Ta'ala says:-- "Verily, Allah and His Angels send blessings upon the Prophet; O you who believe! Send blessings and peace upon him abundantly." (33:56) It was narrated by Ahmad and others on the authority of Abu Talha al-Ansari, may Allah be pleased with him, that the Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, came one day with a smile on his noble face. So we said, "O Messenger of Allah, we see a smile on your face! He said, ''An angel approached me and told me, '
  13. As-Salaam alaikum, Reciting Surat Ikhlas (chapter 112 of the Holy Qur'an) is compared to complete recitation of one-third of the entire Qur'an. Reciting it is a means of blessings for the reciter. Note that Allah Ta'ala sent the Qur'an in 3 parts, namely:-- (1) A third of it comprises of Legal Rulings. (2) A third comprises of exhortations of promises and warnings. (3) A third comprises of discussing Allah's Names and Attributes... and Surat Ikhlas brings together within it those Noble Names and Attributes. The Surat mentions 2 Names of Allah which together indicate
  14. As-Salaam alaikum, We have it in the Hadith that the Prophet Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam once observed that 'Qalb al-Mumin Bayt Ar-Rabb... The Heart of the Believer is the House of the Lord'. And in a Hadith Qudsi, we have it where Allah Ta'ala says:-- "Neither Earth nor Heavens contained Me, but the heart of the believer contained Me." This is when the believer's heart is free of any impurities and all that is other than Allah Ta'ala... the heart becomes Allah's Mansion... Allah's House when it becomes a place of His Self-Manifestation, a place to contemplate Him and
  15. As-Salaam alaikum, Thanks for the reminder on/about this all-important second pillar of Islam... Sallah. Indeed, Sallah, the ritual prayer, is the pillow of the Islamic Religion, and is the basis of Imaan (faith). Concerning Sallah, the Noble Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:-- "Everything has a symbol and the symbol of faith is the Sallah. The ritual prayer [Sallah] is the light of my eyes." "If a person does not perform the prayer, it is as if he has not adopted any religion."
