Importance of Dhikr

He moved with heavenly speed, not with dunya speed, 70,000 years of heavenly years. Imagine. With 600 wings and moving. From where there is no beginning and there is no end. And what did he see?

He saw a white crystal areas, a place that everywhere he is looking he can see only white crystals like a desert but heavenly white crystals. In between there is a tree and on top of the tree is a bird and every moment the bird goes down, picks up one crystal, go up the tree and eat it then come back down, then pick up…

That is what he is doing.

And he said, “Ya Rabbee I am tired. Is it finished yet?”

He said, “No you didn’t see its beginning yet.”

And he [Grandshaykh] said all these crystals are universe and that bird symbolize Sayyidina Muhammad (s) and he goes down and picks one and eat it, that means he is the messenger for all these universes that I am creating in every moment. He is a messenger to every creation, for every planet that we cannot see. For every universe that we cannot see and anyone living he is their messenger. He is the only one that has been sent. Not like other messengers.

So that reality Sayyidina Muhammad (s) his greatness, as a servant to Allah swt Allah blessed and dressed him with all these knowledges that appears to awliyaullah’s hearts. And from these knowledges came knowledge of there is a knowledge of to know about yourself, that we begin the lecture with it.

If you don’t know about yourself how you want to know about your Lord, when the Prophet (s) said, “man `arifa nafsahu faqad arafa rabbahu – who knows himself knows his Lord.” Ok so if you [think you] know yourself how many hairs do you have? You don’t know how many you have. We don’t know? How many we have? How man I have. 652400. Count. We don’t know.

So if we don’t now about our hairs, how are we doing to know about our good amal or bad amal.

The Prophet (s) said, “Akhwafa ma akhaafu `ala ummatee ash-shirk al-khafee. The thing I fear most for my Ummah is hidden shirk.”

So today they say be careful don’t put anyone with Allah swt. Allah is One, He is the Creator.

Sayyidina Muhammad (s) is one in his reality as a servant to Allah swt. You cannot be like the Prophet (s) and the Prophet (s) cannot be like God swt, Allah.

But that doesn’t mean the Prophet (s) doesn’t have the power of intercession. That is completely different subject. Allah gave him to intercede and intermediate for anyone in any moment.

Allah gave it in Holy Qur’an, that whenever they are oppressors to themselves they come to you Ya Muhammad (s) then you ask for them forgiveness and Allah will forgive them.

وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا مِن رَّسُولٍ إِلاَّ لِيُطَاعَ بِإِذْنِ اللّهِ وَلَوْ أَنَّهُمْ إِذ ظَّلَمُواْ أَنفُسَهُمْ جَآؤُوكَ فَاسْتَغْفَرُواْ اللّهَ وَاسْتَغْفَرَ لَهُمُ الرَّسُولُ لَوَجَدُواْ اللّهَ تَوَّابًا رَّحِيمًا

Wa ma arsalna min rasoolin illa liyuta`a bi idhni Allahi wa law annahum idh dhalamoo anfusahum ja’ooka fastaghfarollaha wastaghfara lahumu ar-rasoolu la-wajadoo Allaha tawwaaban raheeman.

We sent not an apostle, but to be obeyed, in accordance with the will of Allah. If they had only, when they were unjust to themselves, come unto thee and asked Allah’s forgiveness, and the Messenger had asked forgiveness for them, they would have found Allah indeed Oft-returning, Most Merciful. Surat an-Nisa [4:64]

So that subject, we know that Allah gave the Prophet (s) the authority for intercession at any moment.

So we have to that is established. So to know yourself is as the Prophet (s) said you have to know yourself to know Allah swt. We don’t know ourselves. So our duty is what? To begin to learn about ourselves.

Are we on the right side or the wrong side. Are we thumma aamanoo or we are on thumma kafaroo. are we on believers side or unbelievers side. Are we doing what prophet and Allah want or not? Simple example, that will tell you where you stand. Very simple for everyone, men and women. Don’t go so far, “O what we have to learn and what we have to know?” very simple example. Do you have anger or not? Do you get angry or not? [yes] yes, we get angry.
