So many people may go during springtime, at the beginning or in the middle or the end. Some people come to summertime, also; at the beginning, the middle, or the end of summer, they may go. Some people come to autumn; yes.

Some people go away at the beginning or middle or end of autumn. Then, a very few people come to wintertime. In wintertime, some people are going at the beginning, some people are going in the middle, but most must go at the end of wintertime. This is our life.”

Happy Mawlid an Nabi 1435 (2014)

Paul Salahuddin Armstrong

“CONSIDER this unfolding [of God’s message], as it comes down from on high! This fellow-man of yours has not gone astray, nor is he deluded, and neither does he speak out of his own desire: that [which he conveys to you] is but [a divine] inspiration with which he is being inspired – something that a very mighty one has imparted to him: [an angel] endowed with surpassing power, who in time manifested himself in his true shape and nature, appearing in the horizon’s loftiest part, and then drew near, and came close, until he was but two bow-lengths away, or even nearer. And thus did [God] reveal unto His servant whatever He deemed right to reveal.”
~ Holy Qur’an 53:1-10 (M. Asad)

So everyone of you who is present (at his home) during that month should spend it in fasting but if anyone is ill or on a journey the prescribed period (should be made up) by days later. Allah intends every facility for you He does not want to put you to difficulties. (He wants you) to complete the prescribed period and to glorify Him in that He has guided you; and perchance ye shall be grateful.”
~ Holy Qur’an 2:185 (A. Yusuf Ali)

The holy month of Ramadan is a special time to seek the blessings of Allah SWT for yourself and loved ones.

Ramadan is so blessed that the birds of the air…

Maulana Shaykh Nazim Adil Al Haqqani : Illusions

Paul Salahuddin Armstrong

Shaykh Nazim - If you are asking for an oasis

“Ninety-nine may be illusions, but one may be a real oasis for you because the Lord Almighty says, ‘Don’t cut off your hope; don’t despair’.”

You don’t have forty hands to go everywhere to take forty Shaykhs’ hands. Therefore, if you are traveling on a spiritual journey, when you meet with your guide or with your destination, I think it is enough for you at that time to be in one place. However, if you are doing it as a pleasure for your ego, you may travel from East to West, looking at this or that.

Sometimes I go to the market, looking at one thing or another and then another, from beginning to end. If you are buyers, you must look for what you want. You must know that you want that thing and you must see where it may be. If you find it, you may buy it…
