  1. As-Salaam alaikum, In ayat 36 of Surat Ya-Sin of the Holy Qur'an, we read it where Allah Ta'ala says:-- ''Glory [be] to Allah, who created in pairs all things that the earth produces, as well as their own (human) kind; And (other) things of which they have no knowledge.'' (36:36) The mystery in creation and pairing runs through all creation.... of dates, trees, crops and fruits. Note how Allah Ta'ala made them of various tastes, smells, forms, shapes; different leaves of trees, different branches, lights and flowers, and the different forms of its fruits
  2. As-Salaam alaikum, In the Holy Qur'an, Allah, the Most High and the Merciful, tells us that:-- ''Verily, Satan is an enemy to you: so treat him as an enemy. He only invites his adherents, that they may become companions of the blazing fire.'' (Surat Fatir- 35:6) Since Satan or Iblis is our avowed enemy, we should fight him, avoid and treat him as such... ie as a first class enemy. We can do this with the help of Allah, Glorified and Exalted Lord of the Universe. In so doing, it will aid us if we know Iblis well enough, so that in fighti
  3. As-Salaam alaikum, 'O you who believe! Remember Allah! Continue to mention Him without limit, before sunrise and before sunset. He is the One who encourages, appreciates and supports you all, and replaces darkness and tyranny with Divine Light.'' So, we have to remember our Lord/Creator as much as we can... Praise Him before and after work (before sunrise and before sunset). Today, who remembers Allah when leaving or entering their house?...Some do but not many; that is why it is said that everything is perishable except Zikr
  4. As-Salaam alaikum, In his book, 'Futuhat al-Makkiyyah', Sayyadi Ibn Arabi (1165-1240), may Allah be Merciful to him, devoted a whole chapter entitled the Presence of the Nourisher (Hadrat al-muqit), in which Sheikh Sahl Ibn Abdullah al-Tustari's ideas on this subject were elaborated. He mentions a telling incident:-- ''He [Sahl] was asked about nourishment, to which he replied 'Allah'! It was then said to him, 'We are asking about food,' to which he [again] replied, 'Allah'. Then the questioner said: 'I am asking you abou
  5. fine-tuning.pdf As-Salaam alaikum, For everyday life and indeed for all times, there is that imperative need for us, for you to fine-tune our/your relationship with Allah- our Creator, Lord and Sustainer. This is obvious, noting that Allah is and we are not; everything is His while we have nothing. On how to go about fine-tuning our relationship with Allah Ta'ala, see attached herewith two documents/files on this important matter, offered by Sheikh Taner Ansari for your perusal. Yes, brief files but concise and to the point. Enjoy them... and Learn therefrom. Best Regards. su
  6. As-Salaam alaikum, ''And whosoever puts his trust in Allah, He shall suffice him'' (Talaq 65:3) ''And in Allah let the believers put all their trust'' (Ibrahim 14:11) In the Hadith also, it is related that the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said: ''There shall enter Paradise of my community 70,000 without reckoning: those are they that neither make auguries, nor brand themselves, nor use spells, but trust their Lord.'' (Bukhari) Trust in itself and its manifestation in the heart, is this: to believe in Allah and to rely on Him, taking rest and ass
  7. As-Salaam alaikum, Iyadh bin Ghanam narrated that Allah's Messenger, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:-- ''I was informed by the Heavenly hosts of Angels that the most dignified among my followers are people who rejoice in public when they ponder the Vastness of Allah's all-compassing Mercy and Compassion, and they weep privately when they contemplate the rigorous punishment He reserved for the sinners and the deniers of the truth. They sit in His Blessed Masjid (mosques) morning and evening- worshipping
  8. As-Salaam alaikum, Real Imaan (faith) in Islam is to love the Noble Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, more than you love yourself. In verse/ayat 80 of Surat Nisa'i of the Holy Qur'an, we have it stated:-- ''He who obeys the Messenger has obeyed Allah.'' (4:80) This is as if Allah Ta'ala is saying to Muslims, the World, the Universe and everything He created, 'If you love whom I love, you will be accepted.' It is only with adaab (good manners) and discipline that we can approach Allah's Divine Presence. Even with this, it has to be through obedience.
  9. As-Salaam alaikum, Ayat 190-191 0f Surat Al-i-Imran of the Holy Qur'an reads:-- ''Assuredly in the creation of the Heavens and the Earth and in the alternation of Night and Day- there are signs for possessors of cores. Those who remember [celebrate the Praises of] Allah, standing, sitting and lying down on their sides; and reflect upon the creation of the heavens and the earth.'' (3:190/191) Those possessed of a 'Core' or lubb, are those who have reached the stage where their remembrance of Allah is unbroken and are se
  10. As-Salaam alaikum, In his 'Maktubat Imam Rabbani of Mujaddid Alf Sani' detailing Letters of Sheikh Ahmad Sirhindi to various mureed and others of note, the Sheikh made a very incisive disclosure about he Soul that ''because the Soul is finer than everything [because it is lighter than hydrogen, which is the lightest form of matter, even lighter than an electron], because it is not even matter, it takes the state, shape and color of whatever it unites with. Because it forgot about itself, it forgot its knowledge of Allah Ta'ala, which it had formally when it was in its own world, in its o
  11. As-Salaam alaikum, In ayat 17-18 of Surat Qaf of the Holy Qur'an, Allah Ta'ala says:-- ''Behold, two (guardian angels) [are] appointed to learn/record (his doings)... Learn (and note them), one sitting on the right and one on the left. Not a word does he utter but there is a sentinel by him, Ready (to note it)." ( Qaf- 50:17/18) We are reminded that each and everyone of us, human beings, is assigned 2 recording Angels (Kiraman-Katibeen) to record his/her deeds-- good or bad, performed by each bodily organ. So exceedingly
  12. As-Salaam alaikum, Angels are noble, pious servants of Allah who worship Him as He should be worshipped, fulfilling whatever He Commands to do, they Never disobey Him. See the attached booklet, by Umar S. Ashqar, for details on who they are, how they are created, their work and physical abilities-- all in the Light of the Holy Qur'an and Sunnah. Best Regards. en_The_World_of_the_Noble_Angels.pdf
  13. As-Salaam alaikum, In ayat 107 of Surat Anbiyaa the Holy Qur'an (21:107), referring to His Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, Allah Ta'ala says:-- ''Wama arsalnaka illa Rahmatan Lil-alameen... We sent you not, but as Mercy for all creatures.'' His Lord called him 'rahmatan lilalameen.' What does this mean? Let us use a simile to clearly understand this. When you go to a generous person: Congressman, King, President or Queen, when you seek or they give you something, they are generous and they give you everything they can...generosity. Alla
  14. As-Salaam alaikum, The Sunnah is//refers to the Commands, prohibitions, sayings, actions and tacit approvals of the Noble Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam. Allah Ta'ala, says in the Holy Qur'an, in clarifying the nature of the Beloved Prophet's behaviour:-- ''Your companion does not err, nor does he go astray, nor does he speak out of desire- it is naught but Revelation that is revealed.'' (Surah Najm 53:2-4) and ''Certainly you have in the Messenger of Allah an excellent example for the one

  17. As-Salaam alaikum, ''Say: Allah! Then leave them to their plunging and their playing.'' (6:91) In the Mufeed ar-Rawi of Sheikh Sidi Mustafa Ma;al-Aynayn, from Ibn Jarir in his commentary on the Holy Qur'an there is: ''....he would say, wanting the murid to confine himself to invocation of the Single Name during his travelling the Way, 'It occurs in tradition that when the worshipper says ''Allah'', there arises from within him a shaft of light, which spreads out on the horizons, then rises to the height of the Throne, filling the cosmos completely so that A
  18. As-Salaam alaikum, Part of the teachings of our Sheikh, the late Maulana Sheikh Nazim Adil al-Haqqani (q), is that without the skin all human beings are the same. And even anatomy establishes that without skin, all human beings are the same-- their skeleton, muscles, lips, eyes, everything except probably, height/length. When skin covers the body, then identity comes forth- you become Sheikh Junaid, Dr. this, Mr. that, Professor John and so on... When we shed the skin, we become simply general human beings... no more identity. Having an identity and/or flouting it will take us to the
  19. As-Salaam alaikum, Reported by Abu Hurayrah, may Allah be pleasewd with him, the Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:-- ''The strong man is not the one who wrestles, but the strong man is in fact the one who controls himself in a fit of rage.'' (Bukhari and Muslim; Riyad-us-saliheeen, chapter 75) People are impressed by physical power, but the real strength is in that one who keeps his or her anger under control when provoked. So, be strong from that perspective.

  24. As-Salaam alaikum, As observed by Sayyadi Muhyi al-Din Muhammad Ibn Ali Ibn al-Arabi (A.H 560-1165), in his famous 'Futuhat al-Makkiyyah', when Allah created ''your body, He placed within it a Ka'aba, which is your heart. He made this temple of the heart the noblest of houses in the person of faith (mu'min). He informed us that the Heavens, in which there is the Frequented House (al-bayt al-ma'mur), and the earth, in which there is the [physical] Ka'ba, do not encompass Him and are too confined for Him, but He is encompassed by this heart in the constitution of the believing human. What i
