Before leading the weekly zikr, he talked about the importance of shari'at. "Shari'at is the constitution. It is number one. Then comes tariqa. Shari'at teaches you what you must do, the rules to follow. Tariqa teaches you the branches; it teaches you how to purify your hearts. If you follow these two properly, you will come to reach makrifatullah."
Shaykh Hisham then stressed the virtues of doing zikr. "When you do zikr, it generates heat because there's so much energy being created from zikr so that the inside is hot while the outside is cold like condensation of water. The energy from your zikr will make shaytan steer clear from you and the recitations will act like rockets killing shaytan."
Prophet Muhammad's position in relation to Allah is par excellence. Shaykh Hisham said, "Allah always address the Prophet as 'Ya Habib'. The supreme title 'Allah Habibur Muhammad' is solely for the Prophet. You know the meaning of huwa? Huwa is the absolute unknown like Qul huwAllah hu ahad. Ahad is unknown. In comparison, wahid refers to many manifestations (known). Ahad refers to 'uniqueness'. Allah refers to the Prophet as 'Huwal Habib'. That in itself shows that the Prophet is a unique lover to Allah. His intercession is requested by all - li kulli - the whole creation. The Prophet can intercede for everyone and all.
