Tausiyah by Shaykh Dr Muhammad Bin Yahya Al-Ninowy at Mawlid Ar-Rasul in KL - 28 February 2015


Araftul hawa mud araf tul hawa...
"I knew true love when I knew the love I have for you..."

We all love Shaykh Dr. Muhammad Al-Ninowy, don't we?

The shaykh was at the grand Mawlid Ar-Rasul & Haul Shaykh Abdul Qadir Al-Jailani, organized by the Al Wariseen Trust on 28 Feb 2015. The Al Wariseen Trust is headed by the honorable Shaykh Afeefuddin Al-Jailani of Iraq, who resides in Malaysia.

Shaykh Al-Ninowy speaks about Prophet Muhammad salallah alaihi wasalam being sent by Allah as unconditional compassion to the worlds. He came to liberate people from the worship of the creations to the worship of Allah Rabbul Alamin

The shaykh says: Laila ha illallah Muhammad Rasulallah means you exclude everything else and include only Allah in your worship. And you exclude everyone else and include only Prophet Muhammad salallah alaihi wasalam in following and emulation so that no one competes with Prophet Muhammad salallah alaihi wasalam. That no one competes with Allah in Godhood/lordship, so He is the only One that you submit to. 

Hijrah means 'migrating to'. The first hijrah is that you migrate from worshiping and submitting to anything, and you submit only to Allah. The second hijrah is that you migrate from emulating x, y, and z and prioritizing what you want and emulate only the best of creations. So that your hawa or innermost instinct, leaning or sweetness of feelings is consistent with what the Prophet came with.

That we should be saying this to Allah and the Prophet: "I want you the way you want me to want you." Prophet Muhammad is the soul, the light and the life of the world. The world cannot live without a soul. The world cannot live in darkness without light. The world cannot live without life for it would be lifeless. 
And this is Shaykh Ninowy's closing remarks:
If you are attached to Rasulallah, you are close to Allah. That is the mathematical relationship. The reason Sayyidina Abdul Qadir Al-Jailani became Sayyidina Abdul Qadir Al-Jailani is that he was attached to Rasulallah. That is why his zikir is everywhere. Because his zikir is everywhere, the zikir of Rasulallah is everywhere and the zikir of Allah is everywhere.

That's kullu rabbaniyin. That's the Rabbaniya. If you are attached to the people who are attached to the person that you are supposed to be attached, you will be close to Allah as well and your zikir will also be grand.
