Laylat al-Qadr

Although most people think it occurs only on the 27th of Ramaḍān, Laylatu l-Qadr can occur at any time during the whole year. You must consider every night as possibly being this holy night and every person as possibly being al-Khiḍr (as).

The Qadr Night or Laylat al-Qadr (Arabic: لیلة القدر), variously rendered in English as the Night of Decree, Night of Power, Night of Value, Night of Destiny] or Night of Measures, is, in Islam , the night when the Quran was first sent down from Heaven to the world and also the night when the first verses of the Quran were revealed to the prophet Muhammad. According to many Muslim sources, its exact date is uncertain but it was one of the odd-numbered nights of the last ten days of Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. Since that time, Muslims have regarded the last ten nights of Ramadan as being especially blessed. Muslims believe that the Night of Qadr comes with blessings and mercy of God in abundance, sins are forgiven, supplications are accepted, and that the annual decree is revealed to the angels who carry it out according to God’s Grace.

Shia Islam

Shia Muslims similarly believe that Laylat al-Qadr is to be found in the last ten odd nights of Ramadan but mostly on the 19th, 21st or 23rd of Ramadan with 23rd being the most important night. The 19th, according to the Shia belief, coincides with the night Ali was attacked in the Mihrab while worshipping in the Great Mosque of Kufa. He died on 21 Ramadan. Shia Muslims believe that Ali (the first Shia Imam, and the fourth caliph of the Rashidun Caliphate to Sunnis) had special insight and intimacy with Allah on this night. Imam Sadiq is quoted as saying (Tafsir “al-Burhan”, vol. 4, p. 487):

Once Imam Ali was reciting Surat al-Qadr and his sons, Imam Hasan (a) and Imam Husayn (a) were near him. Imam Husayn (a) asked his father: “Father, how come we feel a different sensation when you recite this surah?” Imam Ali(a) replied, “O son of the Prophet and my son! I know things from this chapter that you are not aware of now. When this surah was sent down to the Prophet he asked me to go to him. When I went to him he recited this surah, then he put his hand on my right shoulder and said: O my brother and my successor! O the leader of my nation after me! O tireless fighter with my enemies! This surah is yours after me, and is for your two sons after you. Gabriel who is my brother among the angels informs me of the events of one year of my nation at the night of Qadr. And after me he will give this information to you. This surah will always have a shining light in your heart and in the heart of your successors until the rising of the dawn of the day of reappearance of Qa’im [the one who rises, a title for the Islamic Messiah, Mahdi].”

100th Anniversary!

Today, 21 April 2022, marks the 100th birthday of Maulana Sheikh Nazim al Haqqani( q). May Allah grant him the Highest Maqam!

On April 21 1922, Shaykh Sharafu d-Dīn (q) informed Shaykh ‘Abdu Llāh (q) that a baby was born in faraway Cyprus who would be a pure inheritor of the Prophet ﷺ and bring many to the guidance of Islām. Today is the hundredth anniversary of Mawlana Shaykh Nāẓim al-Ḥaqqānī’s (q) birth, a day to be thankful.

«We ask to be no-one and nothing,
For, as long as we are someone,
we are not complete.

Bismillah ir Rahman ir Raheem

The world is rolling slowly and irresistibly into a dark tunnel.

Nobody knows what will happen in this tunnel. We only know of its existence because Allah Almighty has informed us of it. We know from prophetic utterances that this tunnel will have an end and that of all those who enter it, only a few will reappear.These are not my own words. It is mentioned in all of the Holy Books which say, when human beings stop listening to reason, when they throw wisdom out of the window and follow only the advice of their egos, they will slide into a narrow,terrible tunnel. This tunnel will wash away all evil and all dirt. Now day by day, step by step, the world is sinking deeper into it.

Darkness is spreading, and outside the air is frozen. The way through this tunnel is difficult, very difficult, but those who are fortunate enough to leave it again, will find themselves in a world suffused with light and peace. May the Lord Allah Almighty help us. We beg for help in the battle against our most terrible enemy, our own ego, in the battle against our-selves.

Gun-barrels, tanks and bombs are not in the position to call it to a halt. It is only too familiar with such weapons and does not fear them at all.

No, the only weapon which can stop its terrible course, the only one which can teach it fear, is something completely different. It is something which hardly any-one thinks about any more when he is looking for help.

It is the unity of God.

It only submits to that. This, and nothing else, is the message of Islam. All religions agree upon this. They all call people to the unity of Allah Almighty and gather them together into this unity.

They all tell us how we can attain to the power of God or how we can be prepared for it to come to us.

When people meet in the unity of Almighty God, then wars will cease between them. This is something which our ego does not want to happen at all. It is not in its interest that it happens. It does not want to come together with anything or anyone. It wants to be alone and to stay alone, always in front, always on top. Nobody may accompany it, nobody may go alongside it, others must be underneath it, at its feet.

These are its demands, and so it remains from the beginning of mankind to the end. However, religions do not accept this. When we say lâ ilâha illâ Llah, there is no God except Allah, then everyone who says this wholeheartedly is called into the Oneness of God Almighty.

The Key to Salvation: A Sufi Manual of Invocation

51vIvi5V-KL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

This is the first English translation of Miftah al-falah, a thirteenth century Sufi text, written by Ibn Ata Allah, one of the great masters of the Shadhili Sufi order. It is considered to be one of his most important works because it sets out the principles of actual Sufi mystical practices, shedding light on the sacred invocations, and associated practices, such as the spiritual retreat. Written in a clear, lucid style, it offers a glimpse into the Sufi world of the 7th Islamic century and allows us to see almost at first hand how the novice was guided by the Sufi Shaykh and, above all, the purpose and preparation involved in engaging in the invocation, dhikhru’llah. Ibn Ata’ Allah sets out to define it, to explain its nature and power, to show its results and to prove that it is part of the Prophet’s Sunna, or practice. The author goes to great lengths to point out many Qur’anic verses where dhikru’llah is mentioned and cites many noted authorities. Read here FREE DOWNLOAD.
