Sadness vs Happiness [Hikam 226 & 227]

https://www.whitethreadpress.com/publication/the-book-of-wisdoms-kitab-al-hikam/ “So that your sadness over something be little, let your joy in it be little”. [Hikam 226] “If you do not want to be dismissed, then do not take charge of a post that will not always be yours”. [Hikam 227] As we live in a world and society immersed in a culture of consumption, glory of positions and promotions, the discussion of the above two aphorisms beautifully explains how a person can be at the receiving end of Allahs enrichment; gain true satisfaction and receive an honour which will never be lost.

“He ennobled you with three charismatic gifts: He made you an invoker of Him, and had it not been for His grace, you would not have been worthy of the flow of the invocation of Him in you; He made you remembered by Him since He confirmed His relationship to you; and He made you remembered by those with Him, thereby perfecting His grace upon you.” The benefits of dhikr are plentiful and often discussed and known.

Hizbul Azam Translation Introduction and Mini Recital

Book can be purchased from https://www.whitethreadpress.com/publication/the-supreme-daily-remembrance-al-hizb-al-azam/ The Supreme Daily Remembrance and the Noble Litany (Al-Hizb al-A’zam wa ‘l-Wird al-Afkham) is a beautifully organized and comprehensive collection of invocations drawn from the Qur’an and Prophetic Sunna. Its wide range leaves uncovered hardly any area of worldly and otherworldly concern, and a complete reading might well put before Allah just about everything one would need in both this life and the next. This work’s acceptance is plainly visible in the multitudes of devotees who recite it regularly around the world. A lot of attention has been paid to it, from commentaries and translations to abridgements and rearrangements. Though a number of illuminated copies exist in manuscript, no illuminated edition had become available in print. White Thread Press published an illuminated Arabic edition in 2015. For an important book of prayers such as this, illumination provides an aesthetic touch that pleases the eye and enhances the reader’s spiritual engagement with the text. The English Translation Since the publication of the original Arabic edition, public recitals (maqra’as) of the entire collection in a single sitting have been held in various cities around the world. These are usually followed by an authorisation ceremony for the attendees. It has inspired many people to become regular readers of the book. As readers have discovered the merits of this comprehensive litany, the demand had grown for an English translation to fully appreciate and understand the prayers. Therefore, White Thread Press now presents the collection in a bilingual edition, with the Arabic text and facing English translation in an easy to read and visually appealing format.

Imam Ghazali's Six Points on upgrading the Fast

Al Ghazālī’s hierarchal classifications might sit uneasily with certain modern readers, however, who can dispute the Quran’s unambiguous classification of hierarchy, based on Taqwa (Quran 49:13). Al Ghazālī describes three classes of fasting: The fasting of the common people The fasting of the elect The fasting of the elect of the elect The following talk will focus on the fasting of the common people. Reading from Ghazali’s masterpiece Ihyā‘ ‘ulūm al-din (The chapter on the mysteries of fasting) the Shaykh goes through the two reasons of what makes fasting so special that Allah Most High has claimed this act of worship to belong to Him exclusively. As goes the famous prophetic tradition “Fasting is Mine and it is I who give reward for it…” (Hadeeth Qudsi) https://www.whatsapp.com/channel/0029VaDV1iu5a249gftHif0D

Don't Go From Creature to Creature [Hikam 42]

A reminder for the seeker to keep sincere and self-examine their motives for spiritual success. "Travel not from creature to creature, otherwise you will be like a donkey at the mill: roundabout he turns, his goal the same as his departure. Rather, go from creatures to the Creator: "And that the final end is unto thy Lord." [Quran 53:42] "Therefore, he whose flight is for God and His Messenger, then his flight is for God and His Messenger; and he whose flight is for worldly gain or marriage with a woman, then his flight is for that which he flees to." So understand his words (upon him peace!) and ponder this matter, if you can. And peace on you!." (Hikam 42)

Or how can it understand the subtle points of mysteries while it has not yet repented of its offences?"

It is taking place in Qatar from 20 November to 18 December 2022, making it the first World Cup to be held in the Arab world and Muslim world, and the second held entirely in Asia after the 2002 tournament in South Korea and Japan.

The Adhkar of the Naqshbandi Order (Tariqa)

Shaykh Abdur-Rahman (may Allah preserve him) begins by mentioning the origins of the Naqshbandi Tariqa, explains briefly how the order developed over time and highlights some of its distinguishing features. Shaykh then goes through the Khatm Khwajgan (the practise of uttering specific Qur'anic verses, divine names, and remembrances recited at the start of each majlis by the shaykhs of the order) and explains the importance of how the murid should internalise the meaning of each du’a' whilst reciting them. One can only truly benefit from what they ask Allah if they understand what they are asking. Shaykh then reveals how the aspirant should hold fast to supplications as it is only through abundant prayers that a servant expresses their need to Allah, rendering Him to be the only fulfiller of their needs. Finally, the Shaykh goes through the six dhikr acts for the aspirant on this path and their established proofs from the Qur’an and Sunnah.

What is the Cure for Extreme Greed

Summary: • extreme greed with no contentment, no satisfaction and no shukr to Allah. It is a blameworthy desire. • Dedicating most of our time and effort to our work and / or comparing ourselves to others is a result of avid greed. • It is a state of our heart and mind and can be never-ending. • Opposite is contentment: Qan’at. • How to achieve qana’t; o Moderation in spending (which is half of our livelihood - Hadith). o Sustenance is decreed ACCORDING TO OUR EFFORTS AND HARD WORK. o Realise the honour in being self-sufficient as opposed to degrading and humiliating ourselves to achieve our desires. o Reflect on the lives of the Prophets. o Give shukr to Allah. o Be happy with what we have. o Be realistic and identify those things that are beneficial, and those things that are harmful. • Greed is a form of psychological slavery; it overcomes us, and we become a slave to it. • Contentment brings dignity and true freedom. • Satisfaction is when we do things purely for Allah. • There will always be someone (including a family) who condemn people who are content because those who are content do not conform with society’s expectations. • Comparing ourselves to others will bring chronic stress and depression. • Powerful reminder - Surah Taha [20:131]. However, when it comes to religious practice and piety, we should look at people who are above us to inspire and motivate us to do better for the Hereafter.

The Sin that Leads You to Allah [Hikam 95]

"Sometimes He opens the door of obedience for you but not the door of acceptance; or sometimes He condemns you to sin, and it turns out to be a cause of arriving to Him." [HIKAM 95] The following lecture has two main discussions. The first discusses good deeds/acts of devotion and its components. Starting from the intention of the act to actually carrying out the deed and the final stage of whether it is accepted in the court of Allah Most High or not.

THE STORY OF THE PROPHET SULAYMAN

Sulayman (AS) was born and raised in Jerusalem, Palestine. He was the son of Prophet Dawud (AS) and, just like his father, Sulayman (AS) was greatly loved by Allah. Allah gifted Sulayman (AS) with miracles that no other Prophet had: Sulayman (AS) could understand and communicate with all kinds of animals, and he could command the wind. The jinn are unseen beings created by Allah, and Sulayman (AS) was given the power to command them too. One time, Sulayman (AS) was marching through a valley with his magnificent army of Jinn, men and birds. The army came to a valley which happened to be the home of ants. Seeing this great army, one ant said to the others, "Hide in your homes, before Sulayman (AS) and his army crush you under their feet!” Sulayman (AS) understood what the ant had said. He smiled to himself and thanked Allah for all the special gifts he had been given. Sulayman (AS) achieved amazing feats during his lifetime. The Qur'an tells many stories of Sulayman (AS) and his amazing achievements.

Title: An Introduction to the Book of Wisdoms Published by White Thread Press Speaker: Dr. Mufti Abdur-Rahman ibn Yusuf Shaykh Ibn Ata'illah al-Iskandari & Shaykh 'Abdullah Gangohi Translation of the Hikam by Victor Danner Commentary Edited by Andrew Booso & Abdur-Rahman ibn Yusuf Muslim religious life not only consists of belief in orthodox tenets of faith and a determined effort to follow the Sacred Law, it also requires one to scale the heights of the spiritual path. The Kitab al-Hikam of Shaykh Ibn ‘Ata’illah al-Iskandari is the inspiring explanation of the soul’s journey through this life, as determined through the Qur’an and Sunna. Along with his treatises and intimate discourses (munajat), the substantive feature of the work is the author’s 264 spiritual aphorisms (hikam)­—concise, comprehensive and sublime sayings on self purification (tazkiya), and guidelines to help strengthen the relationship between humans and their Lord. These aphorisms, which have never failed to inspire, are presented in this edition according to the systematic arrangement of the great Indian scholar Shaykh ‘Ali Muttaqi (d. 975/1567), together with the indispensable commentary of the twentieth-century sage Shaykh ‘Abdullah Gangohi.

Danger of Satisfaction with One's Ego [Hikam 35]

In this lecture Shaykh Abdur-Rahman mentions two factors which lead one to sin and that the root cause of it is satisfaction with the self and ones spiritual condition, the seeker believing that he or she does not need to strive or do anymore to further their progress. In this condition ones weaknesses will stay hidden and they will remain obedient to their evil nafs. Shaykh advises that by the seeker examining themselves closely and always searching for their defects instead of those of others, their nafs will eventually turn to obedience and then it will become easier for them to continuously strive for good. During the initial stages of the struggle Shaykh highlights how it’s important for the seeker to continue to attend the dhikr gatherings; complete with regularity their prescribed adhkar (each dhikr providing a different nourishment to the heart) and keep the Shaykh informed of their condition as all these factors will give them the extra strength to persevere and stay optimistic through the trials of the struggle.

However, in order for them to gain these qualities the evil attributes of their physical limbs (cursing, back-biting, etc.) and the evils of their heart (pride, envy, love for fame, etc.) must be removed. Sincerity is only then achieved. The seeker will now be able to reach divine proximity and respond truthfully to the call of His Master, thus being worthy to be called a true servant.

Illuminating the Heart [Hikam 13]

In this talk, Shaykh Abdur-Rahman begins by mentioning the Qur'anic verse “He who Allah does not place light (nur) for, he has no light” Shaykh goes on to mention the external and internal forms of light and that the best light, which is in our hearts, is the gift of iman. The Shaykh gives points on how the seeker of the path must act in order to confirm his testimony of faith. He provides details of the different external aspects of the body through which dust settles on the heart.

Still Surprised by Difficulties? Get Over Your Suffering [Hikam 24]

"So long as you are in this world, be not surprised at the existence of sorrows. For, truly, it manifests nothing but what is in keeping with its character or its inevitable nature."

The Secrets Of Prayer And Variety In Worship [Hikam 119 - 120]

Shaykh Abdur-Rahman unravels another precious jewel from The Book of Wisdoms by the great Ibn Ata’illah al-Iskandari. The mysteries of the ritual prayer, why it is performed and what benefit one can derive from it. Ibn Ata’illah mentions that the prayer is a purification of the hearts, it removes from it the contamination of indulgences of the world and restores back the divine perception of one's natural fitrah. The salat is a mi’raj of the believer and only through this intimate discourse can one enter into the domain of the innermost being. To enter this domain, one must develop wuquf qalbi. Shaykh mentions that as Allah is aware of the existence of weariness in man He has allowed for varying acts of worship such as fasting, du’a, recitation of Qur’an, hajj etc. The taste of each of these acts are different ensuring that one does not become bored with one particular act. Also, as Allah knows the impulsive nature of man, He has ordained the 5 compulsory prayers to be at its particular times which allows one to execute each prayer with perfection. Acts of devotion an aspirant enthusiastically indulgences in will help to make them closer and more attentive to the presence of Allah. This stage of ihsan, worshipping Allah as though you are seeing Him is the goal of every seeker of the path and is only attained if one has wuquf qalbi.

Strengthening The Dead Heart

In this talk Shaykh Abdur-Rahman begins by mentioning the importance of balance in every aspect of a person’s life. Quoting, Hujjat al-Islam Imam Ghazali on one having the “prophetic equilibrium”, considering our Prophet (may peace and blessings be upon Him) was the most balanced in everything. Shaykh goes on to differentiate between the illnesses of the body and the heart and its cures. Just as the one who has a physical illness seeks out a cure for his condition, the one who has an ill heart must also seek out an ailment for his condition. However, the Shaykh mentions that the latter person is in deception. As his nafs is engrossed in the worldly pleasures he cannot diagnose his illness, therefore, there will be no change in his condition. The Shaykh goes on to mention how one can awaken this dead heart and build to strengthen it by mentioning the importance and effects of muraqaba.

Istiqama (Steadfastness) In Worship

In this talk, Shaykh Abdur-Rahman begins by mentioning how an aspirant should change their perspective of worship in order to progress in the path. To develop ones understanding of worship, the Shaykh mentions that a part of it includes the individual working out things for themselves, but it is crucial that they are under the guidance of an experienced teacher. This will safeguard one from deviating from the path and it is only through the wise words from ones teacher can one be taught the more refined ways of worship. Shaykh Mangera then talks about how it is important for one to have istiqamah (steadfastness) in performing acts of devotion and not become extreme minded in either becoming completely heedless or excessive in worship. Allah mentions in the Qur'an “I did not create Jinn and mankind except to worship me” but it does not mean that one deprives their mind and body from indulgence as these also have a right over us. The prophet (may peace and blessings be upon Him) emphasised on the middle path, our deen if of moderation and worship should be the same. Shaykh Abdur-Rahman therefore mentions that for one to have the wuquf qalbi they must rectify their intentions with every action even if it is regarding worldly affairs. Allah says regarding the ones who have understanding, they are those “who remember Allah standing and sitting and on their sides…”. Worship is thereby the way one leads their life and not something of formality in which a person is in constant worship.

Halal Meat Issues (HMC)

Many Muslims who originate from the Indian sub continent, Africa or Arab countries naively think that all meat and poultry is slaughtered in a simple manner which they saw practised in the countries they came from. What we have failed to realise is the demand for Halal meat and poultry has dramatically increased in the west and the companies supplying the meat and poultry have had to look for ways to increase the output. This has meant finding quicker ways of slaying the animals and at the same time keeping within the Halal laws. With this proving difficult, many slaughterhouses have looked for shortcuts in the Halal rules, many disregard the Halal slaughter prerequisites and many have no knowledge of the prerequisites whilst the main aim has become the increase of production and its returns.

Importance of Sincerity and the Dangers of Entertainment [Hikam 10 & 20]

This talk, the last one held in the Ramadhan, Shaykh Abdur-Rahman begins by giving a few advises to the salik (the one on the path of spirituality) and how their behaviour of conduct should be of forbearance and seeking excuses for others. Shaykh then goes on to mention some aphorisms on sincerity compiled in ‘The Book of Wisdoms’ written by the great 14th century Sufi and scholar Shaykh Ibn Ata’illah al-Iskandari. He writes that ‘actions are lifeless forms, the presence of sincerity within them is what endows them with a living spirit’. Shaykh Mangera mentions that it is important for the initiate to keep his intention firm and not get distracted or too engrossed in the sweetness of the unveilings of mystical experiences. These experiences Iibn Ata’illah mentions are just creations like ourselves and serve as trials to test ones true desire for worship. By this, Shaykh Abdur-Rahman mentions that entertainment and pleasure, the main fitna and challenge in today's society is both a danger for the salik and the non-salik.

Requirements For The Love For Allah

In this lecture, Shaykh Abdur-Rahman begins by mentioning the ayah regarding the believers: “Those who believe are intensely in love with Allah” The Shaykh differentiates between superficial and true love. He mentions that Allah has placed the attraction for beauty in our hearts, therefore it should only be natural that we incline to the love of Allah as He is most perfect in all His attributes. Love has requirements. For one to claim their love to be sincere, their actions must mirror their emotion of their heart. The way of this path helps the seeker to build their love for Allah with increased adhkhars while at the same time pushing away the false love for this world. The Shaykh mentions the importance of this and that in ones heart a person either has the love for Allah or the world, they cannot co-exist.
