Bawa Muhaiyaddeen

QUESTIONER: I read Bawa’s most recent book, in which he says that Jesus PBUH would return to this earth , to this dream . My belief is that Jesus PBUH is the savior of this particular dream that we are in. This is a dream.

 

BAWA MUHAIYADDEEN(Rh.a): Those who lived before Jesus PBUH left their dreams behind and opened the gates of salvation. Now they are living in the kingdom of salvation. Do you know who Jesus PBUH is? Jesus PBUH is the soul of man.

 

La ilaha ill-Allahu wa inni Adam Safiyullah: There is no God but Allah, and Adam PBUH is the Chosen of God and the father of mankind. There is another prophet to come.

 

La ilaha ill-Allahu wa inni Nuhun-Najiyullah: There is no God but Allah, and Noah PBUH is the Saved of God, the one who showed equality to all animals and birds. He made all animals understand the miracles of God and made them accept God. There is another prophet to come.

 

La ilaha ill-Allahu wa inni Ibrahim Khalilullah: There is no God but Allah, and Abraham PBUH is the Friend of God, the one who showed us the meaning of unity: that there is only one God and all people belong to the one family of mankind. There is another prophet to come.

 

La ilaha ill-Allahu wa inni Isma’il Dhabihullah: There is no God but Allah, and Ishmael PBUH is the Sacrifice of God. He proclaimed that there is one God and demonstrated how to be firm in one’s faith. No matter what state we are in, whether affected by sorrow or happiness, in the face of both birth and death, we must believe in that one God. That is why Prophet Ishmael PBUH came. There is another prophet to come.

 

La ilaha ill-Allahu wa inni Musa Khalimullah: There is no God but Allah, and Moses PBUH is the Word of God, the one who came to unite mankind and to explain the limitless powers of God. He taught the people that God has no equal and no form or shape; He exists as a resplendent light. Moses PBUH came as a leader to all mankind. There is another prophet to come.

 

La ilaha ill-Allahu wa inni Dawud Khalifatullah: There is no God but Allah, and David PBUH is the Caliph of God. He came to explain God’s law and His justice and to teach mankind to live in a state of unity. There is another prophet to come.

 

La ilaha ill-Allahu wa inni ‘Isa Ruhullah: There is no God but Allah, and Jesus PBUH is the Soul of God and the soul within every one of God’s creations. He is the life within you, the soul. Accept him. There is another prophet to come.

 

La ilaha ill-Allahu Muhammadur –Rasulullah: There is no God but Allah. Muhammad (S.A.S) is the Rasul of Allah (Messenger of God). No more prophets are to come after him. He is the one who explained all the stories from the time of creation , the story of God, the story of man, and the story of good and evil. He explained the laws that the previous prophets had brought and showed evidence for the truth of those laws. He gave mankind and understanding of the prophets, the saints, the lights of God, and all the vice –regents of God. He spoke of the completeness of God and told man that he must realize himself before he can realize God, who has no form or shape. He showed man how to open up the true path through patience and tolerance, through tawakkul, or absolute trust in God, through the inner patience and contentment known as sabur and shakur, and through giving praise to God, saying , “Al-hamdu lillah”.

 

All the prophets came to give the laws of God to man. Jesus PBUH came as the soul, Muhammad (S.A.S) came as the Final Prophet, the Rasul. The saint, the lights of God, the qutbs, and all the souls proclaim him as that one light [*] which came forth in the beginning and then manifested as the Final Prophet. We need wisdom to understand what life is, what the soul is, what truth is , and to understand who God is, what worship is, and what unity is. We need wisdom to understand that we are one family and that we are with God all the time, united eternally with Him. With our wisdom we must try to understand that we are one family and that we are with God all the time, united eternally with Him. With our wisdom we must try to understand the various sections within the body common to all mankind and realize that everyone is equal. We all belong to one family. If we understand this equality, we will know peace.

[*] One light: Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (rh.a) refers to the light of Rasulullah (S.A.S) mentioned by the hadith below:

 

Nur-u-Mim: :

 

Truth of Muhammad (SAW). Noor-u-Mim. Light of Muhammad (SAW). First light created from the Divine Light of Allah(Noorullah). ALLAH creates everything from that light as It is the first manifestation point for the DIVINE LIGHT of ALLAH.That Light upon Light praises ALLAH before and during the creation of heaven and the heavenly and earth and the earthly. The inhabitants of the heavens named that light Ahmad. As his praise of ALLAH is greater than the praise of all that is created, he is called Ahmad al-hamidin- the greatest of givers of praise. The following hadith narrated from Jabir bin Abdullah(r.a) points to Nur-u-Mim(Light of Mim).

 

Narrated from Jabir bin Abdullah (radiyallahu anhu): “O Rasulullah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)! May my mother and father be your ransom, shall you tell me of the first thing ALLAH created before all things?” I said.

 

Rasulullah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:

 

“ O Jabir! Before the material(ashya), from HIS light(Noorullah), He created the Light of your Prophet(NooruNabi).”

 

And He said that :

 

That light (Noor) used to circulate and get around in the places ALLAH wished by His Power(qudrat). There was not ,at that time, a tablet(Lawh), or a pen(qalam), or a paradise(jannah) , or a hell, or an angel, or a heaven , or a sun, or a moon, or a jinn or a human(ins).”

 

After that He said :

 

“When ALLAH Taa’la wished to create the creation, HE divided that light(noor) in to four parts:

He created the pen from the first part. He created the tablet(Lawh) from the second part. He created throne(Arsh) from the third part. He split up the fourth part and made it four parts: He created the heavens from the first one. He created the earth from the second one. He created the paradise and hell from the third one. He split up(taqsim)the fourth part and divided in to four parts again : He created the light of the eyes of the believers(mumeens) from the first one. From the second one, He created the light of their hearts and that means ‘to know ALLAH’. From the third one, He created the light of their tounges and that is ‘Kalimah-i-Tawheed(La ilaha illa ALLAH: There is no GOD but ALLAH)’….”

(Imam Ahmad, Musnad IV-127; Hakim, Mustadrak II-600/4175; Ibni Hibban, Al Ihsan XIV-312/64 )
