Habib Umar Ibn Hafiz / Sheikh Ibrahim Osi efa

Sheikh Ibrahim Osi efa

I cannot introduce the one who is introduced

The word imtthalun (the Arabic root means example and it also indicates to internal opening, a change, Sheikh Ibrahim compares Habib Umar to this word)

I could speak about those who serve him, his people, his grandfather. I could speak about his family. (He traced his linage back to the Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him))

Allah is the one who raises and debases

They say it’s a family affair

Have love for the family

Have love for this man


Habib Umar ibn Hafiz
Mawlid


We have gathered today because we love Allah (Subhanu wa Ta’ala) and his Messenger (Peace and blessings be upon him)

Allah (Subhanu wa Ta’ala) makes things great and the greatest is the Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him)

The Companions (May Allah be pleased with them) sat together, The Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him) asked them why they where sat. They said to remember Allah (Subhanu wa Ta’ala), The Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him) said, “ I didn’t ask you, to doubt you but I was ordered to sit in gathering such as this.” This is a place where mercy descends

Thank Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala and purify your intentions

No one sends blessings on him (Peace and blessings be upon him) except that Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala raises us and he (Peace and blessings be upon him) returns them

Imagine the greatness of the Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him), he is sent blessing by millions of people, angels and so forth

Imagine how great he (Peace and blessings be upon him) is where he lead all the Prophets (upon them peace) in prayer and later returned to his bed

How great his soul is (Peace and blessings be upon him) when he can return our blessings wherever we are

This great soul dwelled in a blessed body (Peace and blessings be upon him)

In 23 years he gave all of mankind a message, he guided us completely

This inheritance allows us to behold the creation

Souls without their potion of this inheritance are like people who turn back their backs on the signs from Allah (Subhanu wa Ta’ala)

It doesn’t matter what people own of the world, unless they know Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala

Creation only serves a purpose towards creation

We should use it for good

If we had insight we would prefer what Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala would prefer

After the Gazwa Hunian, the people who entered Islam were given money and things to strengthen them, some of the Ansar (May Allah be pleased with them) where unhappy about not receiving some booty. When he (Peace and blessings be upon him) heard this, he (Peace and blessings be upon him) called the Ansar and Abu Bakr (May Allah be pleased with them) and asked them, “What is this news that has reached me?” The Ansar (May Allah be pleased with them) where ashamed and became silent, he (Peace and blessings be upon him) repeated this three times, then said, “Didn’t I reach you and guide you, didn’t Allah guide you through me?” “Oh, yes.” The blessing is all from Allah (Subhanu wa Ta’ala) and his Messenger (Peace and blessings be upon him). “Oh people of Ansar, Are you sad about these things? They will leave with these things and you will leave with me. If its wasn’t for the migration I would be an Ansar and that I would go the way the Ansar would go, if others went another way, I would go with the Ansar.” (Peace and blessings be upon him).
They wept until their beards were wet.

Let us return to our homes with the Sunna of the Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him)

Get your inheritance of the Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him)

The shop is always open

In these gathering the hearts are purified, resolve is taken, take guidance to inspire, this is a summary of inheritance
Humble yourself to it and who want to get the most precious thing the gift of the Prophets (Peace and blessings be upon him) inheritance
