Realities of The Circle and
Secrets of The Hajj
In the beginning was a dot:
the power of the Quran is in surat al-Fatiha,
all the power of Fatiha is in Bismillahi ’r-rahmani ’r-raheem,
all the power of Bismillahi ’r-rahmani ’r-raheem is in the bah,
all the power of the bah is in nukta/ Dot.

Our First Hajj was in The Womb
expansion of creation is the symbolized by the border of the circle, the
circumference. The surat al-Fatiha is symbolized by circles and the
Divine kingdom is within.
Outside is the Divine essence which supports creation.
the center The Divine said, “I was a hidden
treasure wanting to be known.” The center wants to be known,
so direct yourself to the Divine kingdom, seek to find the way to the
Divine is the center needing to be known and Creation, all the points on
the circumference, is in need of The Divine it is
the center of Power. In this relationship based on love, Allah
`azza wa jal wants to be known and wants us to be loved.
Don’t be lost in what people define as “religion” as you seek the path to
The line from the center to the perimeter is the radius.
Each radius is a Messenger, a Prophet, those with whom Allah is satisfied
“Radi”. They are the Pillars of Creation; they hold the circle together,
for without them there can be no circle. They deliver the message – “This
is your Creator, this is who you are to worship, and you must follow this
discipline in order to reach the center.” An Atom with a nucleus as it’s
center of power.
Each radius also leads back into the center; and the Nabi's
(Prophets) are the big pillars. We are taking the main radius of Prophet
Muhammad (s) and within that are the “inner ways”, the tariqats.
The circle is Shariah and everything
to do with the circle is the law, and you cannot go outside it.
soon as you say “I want to take the way”, then you are on that way. You
have joined the people of Marifah, on the way to knowledge of the
Every step you take on the way is truth, Haqiqat. When you reach the
center you gain Divine Knowledge of the center,
which opens Haqaiq/ Realities for you. Then you have knowledge of
the entire circle because you hold all the spokes
that reach the circumference.
this Allah shows you that you cannot
outside the circle
because from the physical level to the atomic level you are in an ocean of
atoms. Your smallest level is your atom and it submits better than your
physicality. Within its nucleus all the electrons are circumambulating.
THAT is the circle of life and there is no escaping it.
fastest path to the center is the one with most power and the knowledge of
living saints. The Naqshbandi way takes you to the center by way of living
connected saints who are full of power. That is why Naqshbandi
associations are alive. When we begin, with authorization, to do dhikr,
they have authority from the Saint of Light to re-synch hearts that are
disconnected from universal beat. This is the Hajj.
Hajj is to submit to that reality; you must once in your lifetime open our
selves to that understanding. At Hajj everyone puts on the dress of
white – of light – which shows that they are equal in the eyes of Allah
(swt) regardless of their education, economic status or skin color.
Al Harmain Mecca- Place of
NO-Forbidden "The Heart"
Come to the Holy Precincts – the Ka’bah, with Safa and Marwa; the Ka’bah
is mim. The Ka’bah represents the nucleus of your existence; you
circumambulate and praise your Lord for your existence in the same way the
planets circle the sun/ Light and the electrons whirl around the nucleus
of the atom. As soon as pilgrims begin tawaaf, all individual
differences are put aside and the scattered bits of light come together as
an Ocean of
Make tawaaf, circumambulate around the Ahadiyyah,
the unique Oneness center, and know that you have approached
the unique station of the Kabah.
Mawlana shows us how that is happening every moment of our lives.
Hajj or Pilgrimage of Life The First Hajj is in the Womb
Allah/ The Divine shows us, in the womb of the mother is the same
circle, where the Hajj takes place on a microscopic scale. The
Ahadiyyah / Unique Oneness is The Egg and the 500,000 sperm (named
mani in Arabic) are hajjis, all vying with each other to reach it in
order to be Abdullah/ Servant of God. The one that reaches the egg will
get to the station of creation; that one seed will go into the
Ka’bah of the womb, do its khalwah isolation for 9 months and come out as a new creation.
had the winning Gift From The Divine
and survived while the other 499,999 did not; you were the
are already blessed and loved by the Divine. Mawlana says to you, now do
this a second time, I am bringing you to marifah of the soul.
take your body and make tawaaf and ask Allah (swt) “Ya Rabbi/O My
Lord, it is not
enough to be on the outside. Let me go inside the Ka’bah.”
This time Allah says, “Yes you can, this Ka’bah represents the heart of
Sayyidina Muhammad (s), just as your soul came from mani, Muhammadan
prophets are brothers in the brotherhood of the Prophet (s), and whatever
prophet you love is the reality you are seeking. Everyone around the
circle has the same center. Allah is saying jump into that center, jump
into the Ka’bah, the Prophetic station, the lights of marifah/ Gnostics.
Don’t keep thinking it is Hajj and everybody is going to visit Saudi
Arabia. It is more than that. Now Mawlana is asking you to be more
specific in your request. “Ya Rabbi, let me go to the heart of Prophet
(s), open the doors of Prophet’s (s) heart.” If you are in this
association you have been granted permission to ask that because your soul
is from Naqshbandi realities. We are asking to open the door of Sayyidina
Muhammad’s (s) heart.
you see during dhikr is Ka’ba Sharif and you are asking Prophet Muhammad
(s) to let you go into his heart, to make tawaaf there with the soul of
Sultan al-Awliya and the soul of Mawlana Shaykh Al Qabbani.
high reality was reached by those who came here to visit Their Shaykhs ,
The Shaykhs are the living Kabah and the Qibla.
Furthermore, the one who goes to Cyprus is a real Hajji; that is a gift
for the seeker. One destination is obvious – visited by 3 million people,
but only 300 people visited the secret destination. That is a secret in
the night sky - the tiny stars can show you the way. But during the day
there is no guidance like that.
turned to the living Qibla and came to the living Kabah.
This is Mawlana Shaykh; he is in the presence
of Sayyidina Muhammad (s) As we make way around our Shaykh with our
praise and our love, we are in the presence of Muhammadan reality. When
we pray to Allah and know that Mawlana is our Imam in his direction, it is as if we
are praying in the Divine Presence, praying in the presence of Prophet
Muhammad (s) to Allah.
Which then is holier, Ka’bah or That which Allah made with His Two Hands? If you think bricks and stones
are holier, which are made from Men, then
that is idol worshiping. It is the presence of
Sayyidina Muhammad (s), Rabb al-Bayt, that is what makes the Ka’bah holy. Then
if Prophet [s] emanation is on Bani Adam whom Allah created with His
Two Hands then the Shaykhs secret is much higher.
When we accept the guides in our heart, he is the Kabah. Shaykh al
Qabbani is the reflection of Shaykh Nazim al Haqqani, Sultan al-awliya,
and when we dress ourselves in the Shaykh we invite that Ka’bah (Shaykh
Nazim) into our lives.
That is why we go to Mecca before Medina.
When you believe and understand that he is everything in your life,
then Prophet (s) opens the City of
Lights. Medina Munawira
Then we need to get into the Ka’bah.
Once you get into the Ka’bah, there is a secret highway underground to the
city of the Prophet (s). Visualize that you are going into the Prophetic
(s) heart, and ask ”Dress me from Mawlana Shaykh and let me go to the
City of Lights, Medina al-Munawira.” Now He brings His light. That is
what we are aspiring to -- these are days of marifah.
Arafat is the station of knowing. We went to the Ka’bah and laid
ourselves to be sacrificed like a lamb; let us be halal for Sayyidina
Muhammad (s). Let us each say “Ya Rabbi, my head is on the floor, I
don’t know anything nor should I claim to know anything until I have
tasted from that reality. Let the Zabiha (sacrifice) take place and take
away “what I think of myself” and “what I don’t know.”
