Habib Umar ibn Hafiz

Dowra part two

Awarif al-Marif



Presence of heart is humility – in prostration

Abdullah ibn Hassan At-Tahr said, “Presence of heart in works is better that presence of heart in speech.”

Don’t be like someone who only understands his own experience – there was once a blind man who heard a sound and said is it like a rooster? He was able to see a rooster once and then was blind again, so he thought it was similar

Call Allah (Subhanu wa ta’ala) in accordance to your need, the nearest to him was the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)

How was the presence heart of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) when the Gnostics were given a piece

The world is folded up and vanishes when they prostrate, they think that they have plunged into the lowest depths of the earth

The Prophet and messengers (upon them peace) have different states

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is a clear light of guidance

Above every person with knowledge is a more knowledge person

He (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) traversed the seven heavens, every place and station, he was above all on the night journey

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) soul is more vast than to be distracts by our current state

No one is like him in experience

He (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is the sun of merit and they are the planets

All of the Messengers and Prophets, he (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) he is above them

The one who made the night and day is one

The one who made tomorrow and today is one

These Gnostics have bodies in the world but souls elsewhere

Their whole bodies prostrate, every fibre of their being prostrates

If your heart prostrates you will be given a gift

They are the nation of Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)

The prayer is the accession

The final tasshudd – testification, is the place of returning to the created realm

Come to prayer and take your provision

Make a supplication after prayer

Make the supplication that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) taught Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him), “I have wronged myself much, no one else can forgive except you, forgive me and accept my repentance because you are all-forgiving and all-merciful.”

If you go up the stair say Allahuakbar (God is the greatest) and go down saying Subhanllah (Praise be God’s)

When people would reach high place they would say Allahuakbar

A village may not be punished because of the remembrance of Allah Subhanu wa ta’ala in it

Connect yourself to the believers

If you are connected to the believers then you’ll receive it but if your cell phone is out of coverage you won’t get it
