Darqawi Dhikr Overview

The following is a downloadable mp3 talk given before Ramadan in 2009 during a visit to Durban, South Africa. It was meant to give an overview of the dhikr that can be done on a daily basis by the fuqara of Shaykh Dr. Abdalqadir as-Sufi. Anyone who has given bay’a to an amir under the Shaykh has the authority to do these dhikrs. All is in the realm of the ‘Nawafil’ or voluntary and is aimed at the individual faqir or faqirah and gatherings of the fuqara.

الإسراء والمعراج – al-Isra’ wa’l-Mi’raj – Durban, South Africa, 17th July 2010

What inspired this gathering tonight was the desire to commemorate the night that the Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallim, was taken by Allah, subhanahu wa ta’ala, upon the back of the white Buraq to the Masjid al-Aqsa in al-Quds and from there He, subhanahu wa ta’ala, raised His slave to Himself through the seven heavens to His presence.

In the presence of Allah, subhanahu wa ta’ala, he was welcomed, shown what was to be seen and given all he could desire. Continue reading “الإسراء والمعراج – al-Isra’ wa’l-Mi’raj – Durban, South Africa, 17th July 2010”

Himmah – Gaborone, G West Mosque 9th September 2008

Himmah is aspiration, but a particular aspiration as all men and women have aspiration, even if it is to destroy themselves.

This aspiration, called Himmah in Arabic, is a desire that relates to Allah, subhanahu wa ta’ala, and his Rasul, sallallahu alayhi wa salim. It is the purification of the desires that all men have from all that is other than Allah.

Himmah is inextricably linked to movement. Allah’s creation is dynamic; it is always in motion; everything exists by energy, even the solid mountains and down to the smallest atom and its constituents. Himmah is what connects the intelligent being in the universe, which is man, to the movement of the cosmos as designed and decreed by its Creator. As we said all men have aspiration and likewise all men are in motion but Allah makes a distinction when talking about mankind in surat al-Insan; Continue reading “Himmah – Gaborone, G West Mosque 9th September 2008”

The Golden Sword – NMJ Hall, Durban 6th May 2010

Alhamdulillah –

Alhamdulillah in every situation and at every time. It is impossible to give Him the praise He deserves as it is beyond us. He encompasses everything and nothing encompasses Him. The whole matter is in His hands and the outcome is only His, subhanahu wa ta’ala.

In His Mercy and Love He took a part of His praiseworthiness, named him Ahmad and made Himself known through His beloved and Best of His Creation. He, sallallahu alayhi wa sallim, in turn cannot be praised by us according to his due. We accept our limitation and are grateful to be a part of his Ummah, and ask Allah to bless him according to his place and rank in every time and every place, not forgetting his family and noble companions, and all who have followed in their footsteps until now.

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim Continue reading “The Golden Sword – NMJ Hall, Durban 6th May 2010”
