Rajabun Shahrullah, Shaban shahr an-Nabi and Ramadan opening shahr
The Secret of the three Recitations of Surah Ya-Seen  and Allah
granting us the secret of life, wa laqad
karamna bani Adam (as).
The Divine heart wants to be known. The favor of Rajab is to be free from
intercession of anything in creation. That is, no creation has yet
manifested in the ocean of creation. No angel and no creation will bring
that reward to us. That is from the secret of the Divine heart that is
moving in Rajab and from the creation of that light which is moving in
Rajab. We recite the first Surah Ya-Seen for the reality of that heart and
recite the first of three Surat al-Ikhlas, which is from that divine
heart. This is the inclination of the Divine to create creation.
Once that will is begun the divine act of the manifestation of creation
Next Ya-Seen is for shahr Shaban.
Rajab is the light
La ilaha ila-Allah
is for Shaban.
He is ash-Shafi.
The secret of Shaban is related to the secret of Prophet [s]. If not for
Muhammadan RasulAllah that ocean would not have manifested. The second
Ikhlas in our awrad is related to that Creation of The Unique Light of
Existence or Ahadiyya [Uniqueness]. That light is the originating source
of all light and is unique because it comes from the Divine Presence. Any
other color on that spectrum of light is from it.
The Samadiyya [Self Sustaining] is the light directly from the Divine
Presence. You cannot feed it nor give it sustenance and therefore it is
being received directly from the Divine Presence.
The light of Shaban is manifesting from the light of the Prophet [s].
When you write the Kalima, the importance of nisf Shaban is the mid point
which is called the "qaaba qawsayni aw adna". Two Bow lengths or nearer.
The point where the two points intersect is the spiritual new year and
that is where our light is coming into existence. Whatever is dressed upon
that light is coming onto that point and is dressed at that specific point
of time. Only Allah bestows or dresses that light and it is the
originating source of your light. At that point He decides what sustenance
your soul will receive for that year.
By the month of
Ramadan that light is born. It is the ninth lunar month.
The importance of nine and the manifestation appears in that month.
Ramadan is the month in which our light is born. Like the Gestation of a
Child in the Womb [Rhem] That manifestation from the light of Prophet [s]
is born and its sustenance is decreed and given existence.
- Divine Heart that no one can reach
and is the originating source of fire, love and intuition. It is the
originating spark and that divine heart is found only in the heat of the
- 2 -The Heart of Sayyidina
Muhammad (s). The quloob
al-Muhammadiyya and the heart of creation. This is the
Container of all power in this known universe
Wa laqad karamna bani Adam (as).
The reason we study the heart is not for the cosmos but is based on the
heart is the presence of The Divine.
- 3 – Adam’s (as) Heart.
You are the only creation given that heart as it is a reflection of the
Prophetic heart and only through this heart can you reach to Allah’s
gift. Open that heart, go forward into it and reflect. That is the heart
of Sayyidina Muhammad (s). You do not point to any direction or focus on
anything except that one heart. You point your telescope towards that
direction so that your Kabah is your heart. When you are coming for this
purpose and freeing Mecca by destroying the 360 idols, you are now
copying the Prophet’s marifah and He will take you to Divine Presence.
The Holy Prophet’s example for us:
- Live in Mecca, i.e.. "Your Hearts Desires"
- Must leave Mecca, i.e.. "Your Hearts Desires"
- Move Towards Medina Al Munawira " City of LIGHTS"
- Major Battles to Save you from Hellfire and then
you may return to Mecca
- Mecca "The Heart is now filled with Divine Love"
and you destroy the idols. You make your heart and body a Masjid, or
place of worship. It is completely pure and purified for your Lord and
free from filth and idols.
You have 360 idols, one on each point of your body. Each point of the 360
Lataifs/ Chakras has an evilness sitting there, guarding and preventing it
from submitting to the Divine Presence. Through the focus on the Shaykh
and with the meditation and spiritual practices it becomes much easier to
follow the Holy Prophet’s example.
Then the three last big idols
must be removed. These are the Three Jammarat [Stoning of Devils
on Hajj] and are the same process in your spiritual pursuit. As you try to
open your heart, by Muraqabah, the Shaykh is taking away all the evilness
on the Lataif / chakras and making them to submit to the Divine Presence.
As we practice more and more in his way, it is his light and guidance
which can remove these idols.
this we must be in Muraqabah of the Shaykh.
Open the lock upon the ears,
lock on the heart,
the veil on our eyes.
is why the Arabic letter Sheen is for Arsh [ Divine Throne] has three dots
on it; they are three locks. The purpose of the spiritual practices is to
unlock the three locks on the hearts reaching towards the Divine heart
through the Prophetic heart. These lights are moving from Rajab to Shaban
This is the importance of the awrad that we recite. The awrad of Sayyidina
Ali [as] for completion of the Quran is the Naqshbandiyya wird. That is
the fulfillment of reading the Quran with all its secrets. Intention to
recite the awrad on the intention of the Shaykhs.
Three Surat al-Ikhlas has to do with that reality.
The secret of number 3. We have 1 and then we have 2 which is reflection
2 + 1 is three.
Three – from which everything is born. Light of Allah, Light of Prophet,
and Light of Creation.
One is Ahad or Unique Oneness.
One is Wahid Oneness.
One is The Essence and Wahid is the reflection of the Ahad.
One – Allah.
Creation is from the other “one” which is Wahid.
From the one and two the rest of creation is born.
Everything then is born from three. 3+1=4, …3+6=9
Anytime we recite 11 times Surat al-Ikhlas, it relates to that secret of
the mirror of Creation; Allah’s Essence reflecting to Muhammad [s], the
3 for the power of Three Holy Lights.
Seven relates to Hadi or perfection of the soul and perfection of our
Then this perfect creation becomes a guide for all of creation.
When we recite seven times Surat al-Inshirah it is for the 7 holy
That is, the opening of the 7 holy openings of the face and the 7 levels
of the heart.
