Secrets of Ablution/Wudu and Power in
First Step: understanding wudu and the importance of the
By Shaykh Hisham al-Kabbani
Allah (swt) showed us what is right and what
is wrong. And what is right is very well explained by Prophet (s), and what is
wrong is very well explained by Prophet (s). And what benefits us, Prophet was
the first to explain it. Wa ma arsalnaaka illa rahmatan lil `alameen.
Whatever benefits us, he was responsible to deliver, or else he will be asked
why he hid it.
Allah (swt) trusted the Prophet with
whatever He created, and whatever He created was released through the Prophet’s
message. So through Allah’s message, Prophet (a) was able to reach every person,
both in his time and after his time. He was the first one who taught Sahaba (r)
the use of energy and what is available of different powers around us in this
There are many ways that the Prophet has
shown us to heal, one of which is described in the
Hadith of the blind man who asked the Prophet to restore his sight.
The Prophet taught him the dua to recite,
but he didn’t say to him, “Go and read this dua.”
(s) said to that blind man, “The first step is to go to the ablution area and
make ablution.” It means ablution is the opening for the cure of every sickness.
If you don’t have ablution, your effort to cure that disease will be minimal.
Wherever you are reaching, high levels of struggling against the
ego and preventing the desires of the ego, using that power when you contradict
the ego, building the power more and more, when the negative energy goes away
from you, the positive energy increases.
with ablution that will be thousands and thousand times more powerful than what
it used to be. So Prophet (s) said, “Go and make ablution.”
The first level of wudu
When you make wudu, other than niyyat
[intention] what is first action? It is
washing the hands up to wrist, and in between the fingers. When you are washing
the hands, it means the first movement you are doing is using the hands, so the
first level of energy is in the hands.
That is why you see people who are
attempting to learn from and adopt Islamic ways, especially the people of India
and China who believe in Bhuddism, first they use their hands as a method to
release energy from their body, because they collect energy through their body
like a dish, or a parabola.
They collect these energies and release them
through their hands. The body acts as a collector of energy. Through their
different movements of very stressful exercises throughout their body, they
begin to acquire that kind of energy and concentrate it and release it through
their hands. To heal sick people. Everything that they use in healing has an
effect using energy.
The best example of this is laser surgery,
which, through modern technology, uses laser light to cure eye disease and even
blindness. They don’t use equipment anymore, only lasers.
So the blind man, when he asked the Prophet
(s), the Prophet gave him a hint that through the release of energy, that
blindness will go. Fourteen hundred years ago the Prophet healed blindness
through energy. So what do we learn from this? Make ablution, and clean
This is why he (s) said, “The weapon that
protects you from the enemy is ablution.”
Wudu can release energy and burn it by
releasing it through the hands. The blind man learned that and used it, which we
will discuss later.
The actions of wudu
That man went through many different actions
and was cured instantly of blindness. Therefore, when you take ablution:
Wash your hands and then rub them;
Turn the right over the left and the left
over the right. You cannot begin with left over right; you must begin with right
over left; then,
Clean between the fingers and intersect the
fingers of one hand with the fingers of the other hand, coming like this, with
the right thumb on the left and the left thumb on the right.
They use this in the Buddhist methods of
healing without knowing the Islamic secret. They release this energy to the
afflicted areas of the body. First, you are using ten fingers. Ten (10) is the
power of computer energy, one and zero. That energy that Allah taught computer
programmers is being channeled to computers through hands, and you are seeing
all the miraculous power of computers.
So if the computer has that great power,
that energy can also be channeled to heal. They use it without knowing why; they
don’t know the Islamic aspect, which
is the one and zero. That is why you see if you open your hands and draw
a line (connecting the fingertips) you form a circle. It is 20 cm. around.
So the hand represents the body, and as you
open the body to form a circle, the entire body is in the hand, just as they
teach in reflexology. Through different points in the body you can heal.
The higher level through reflexology is not to touch; in that case, the
hands act as a receiver of positive energy, and when the hands are extended like
a satellite dish (as they teach in Islamic healing), without thinking or
imagining, but posing your body as a complete circle, energy emanating from the
cosmos is transmitted to you and your body receives it, pulling it through your
body and concentrating it through the heart. This is a 15-minute meditative
technique that we will discuss later.
Symbolically, this is how the whole body is
a circle and the hand is a circle. The body acquires that energy, receiving it
from the left hand and right hand, and channeling it throughout the body.
So when you begin washing the hands and
rubbing to activate them, that is sign of one and zero, and you are actually
activating the codes Allah has given us through the hands.
This is why we
begin to rub right over left and left over right. If you stand in a mirror, you
see in your reflection the left is right and the right is left. If you stand
with your arms spread, you see the opposite. If you are looking from the other
side, the left becomes right and right becomes left. That is because we are an
image of the reality.
In Heaven the left is the right and the
right is the left. This
means the right must submit to the left, because in the `alam al-arwaah,
the right is left and the left is right. Here in dunya is the opposite:
the right is left, while in akhira the left is right! Here in dunya,
when we make tawaaf of Ka’aba Shareef we move anti-clockwise, not
clockwise, which is the mirror image of clockwise in akhira, where we
move left to right: clockwise.
To activate that power, Allah is telling us, “I am activating
your powers from the 99 Beautiful Names and Attributes that I stamped in your
Rubbing produces fire from two sticks.
Rubbing produces energy. By rubbing the hands during wudu, the water prevents
the energy from going out; it freezes it. That is why the Silah al-mumin
al-wudu (The weapon of the believer is ablution.) As soon as you rub, that
creates energy and by rubbing under water that keeps the energy in the body to
be released later. When we rub our hands we are preparing energy to keep it and
to save for use against the enemy.
When we want to heal we don’t use water.
Using water during wudu, we are collecting
and storing energy. In healing, we rub with no water and open the hand to
release that energy. How is that code activated? If you look at your right hand
on it is the Arabic number 18 and on the
left hand is the Arabic number 81. 18 plus
81 represents the 99 Names of Allah, each number consisting of one (1) and eight
(8). One plus eight (18), and eight plus one (81) together make 99. Add 99
together (18 = 1+8 and 8+1 = 81) and you get 9.
This explains the meaning of the nine points
of the self, which represent the nine awliya responsible for the self.
These nine points are used in the Enneagram; a teaching from Central Asia, from
Naqshbandi people, which I once explained. They use this in a linear way, but in
fact it is a circle. If you talk to (----), I taught her how to use that. They
have nine bullet points that consist of the whole system, the whole body.
When you rub the fingers you activate the 99
Beautiful Names of Allah, which in turn activate the nine points that are on
your body. By example we could say when the nine points are activated, the
receiver is now on, energy goes in, it begins to receive, and it is digitized
and released as a picture and a sound, much like we are seeing today with
Similarly, the hands are circles, and when
we rub them and open them they begin to act as circles over each other, taking
whatever energy they receive and managing it. That is why in martial arts they
use the hands, but they don’t know why it is energy; they don’t know about the
99 Names and Attributes and how they are protected through the Names. They don’t
know, but nevertheless, Allah gives to whomever He pleases. He lets them use
those powers; they know there is a power there but don’t know why. They make
quick moves and use that to defend themselves and protect others and to defeat
When Prophet (s) healed Sayyidina `Ali’s
eye, he opened for him that Reality. That is why through that energy he has in
his hands, he was able to carry the world to his knees, because that energy was
carrying the world to his knees.
So when you are activating the 8 and 1 and 1
and 8 (which are the 99 Names), in numerology nine is equal to zero and you
don’t add this number, for it doesn’t exist anymore. It means submission,
complete submission, when you activate that energy you are under that energy’s
submission, submitting to that Heavenly energy that is coming.
Becoming a conduit for Allah’s cosmic healing energies
You are no longer seeing yourself acting but
that energy is acting, you become zero. Like going in a plane or train or car;
they each submit to the person driving them. You submit to the energy coming and
you release it out. Your body becomes like a receiver and a reflector. TV
receivers only act as receiver that reflects the image. It is not them doing the
job; it is the Heavenly energy doing the job.
That shows us how far we can go with these
numbers when we activate them together – the 18 and the 81 ‑ and the
significance of the 18 and the 81. We will leave that to another session.
Why is it 18 and why is it 81? This is
significant, and I don’t know even what will come. That is an introduction to
these different techniques that they are trying to adopt without knowing its
background, and how they can affect more through their healing.
So after rubbing the hands and expediting
the release of energy, you still end up on 19. (Here is 18 and here is 81. Add
them and you get 99. Add 9 and 9, you get 18. Add the 1 and 8, you get 9. So you
activated the 9.)
When you rub and activate the nine, now you
pass the water (if you check, those who know how to make wudu, not everyone
knows to intersect the fingers), then you are activating the 10. The 10 and the
nine, comes to 19. And recently they found that every ayat in the Holy Qur’an is
on 19. And that 19, wa yahmilu arsh arrahmani yawmadhin thamaaniyya.
“…and eight will, that Day, bear the Throne of thy Lord above them.
(69:17) And those holding Hellfire are 19.
Hell is energy, so that is the power of
energy. You are activating the negative energy to heal the negative energy. You
need poison to heal poison – that is why they give antibiotics. That 19 is the
number of angels responsible for Hellfire. So you use that negative energy that
comes from them. If you multiply by negative you get positive. You heal sickness
by fire that comes from Hellfire.
When that energy is released, it completely
breaks down the poison in the system. That is how you activate the 19 together.
The 8, which relates to the 8 here, the 1 and 8 and the 8 and the 1.
When Allah’s Throne comes on Judgment Day,
eight angels are carrying it. It means they are carrying the 1;
the 8 is carrying the 1. Allah reveals that in our hands. You are also
activating the good energy when you release it. After you destroy the negative
energies with negative energy, you want to dress them with the 8 and the 1 (the
good, Heavenly energy). That is why the ill people then feel strong and that
they are cured.
When you activate that Heavenly energy by
rubbing the hands, you are activating the number nine; that is complete
submission. Now you are letting your body submit to the cosmic energy that
you receive, which is fiery energy.
When you activate with the 10 you are
activating the energy. That negative energy is not bad because it is the power
of the negative one, and you defeat the enemy by using tools of that enemy. An
example of this is the energy from Sun, which is a fire energy but at the same
time it is healing and useful. You use negative to heal negative, to destroy it
completely. In this way, you leave them with nothing (clean), and then activate
the 8 and the 1.
Insha`Allah we will continue with more on
