NEW RELEASE - TSUNAMI
Corruption and Tsunami
Mawlana Syaikh Hisyam Kabbani
Suhbat 01-01-2005, Michigan USA
Obey Allah, obey the Prophet (s) and those in authority among you. Obeying Allah results in reaching paradise. Obeying the Prophet (s) results in paradise. Obeying those in authority keeps one from going to prison.
Allah said, Dhahar al-fasaada fil-barri wal-bahr bi ma kasabat aydeen-naas li yudheeqahum ba`da alladhee `amiloo la`allahum yarji`oona. Corruption has appeared on land and sea because of (the deeds) that the hands of men have earned, that ((Allah)) may give them a taste of some of their deeds: in order that they may turn back (from Evil). [30:41]
Fasad means corruption. Fasad can mean people leaving their prayers, and fasting, their charity, leaving remembrance of Allah, not remembering the Prophet (s), not doing what Allah wants, running after zina (fornication), running after drinking, running after all that Allah has said for us to avoid. And that is one side and the other side means corruption in the system, corruption between governments, corruption in business, corruption in cheating people.
All this is under fasad. Also under this is backbiting, speaking about others, trying to promote false issues about people, trying to innovate new schools of thought that are not Islamic but are radical in their ideology. li yudheeqahum ba`da alladhee `amiloo la`allahum yarji`oona that ((Allah)) may give them a taste of some of their deeds: in order that they may turn back (from Evil).
That corruption has been appearing on earth and on sea. Appearing on earth full of corrupton, all kinds. On sea , full of corruption and full of fasad. This happens because of what people have done for your selves. "This what you have done O human beings!" Allah mentioned that for every generation from beginning to end. And Allah said He is going to make them to taste, for what they have done, to taste hard times.
And Allah has a lot of ways and means to make people to taste hardship through what they have done thru their corruption. But within that it might be innocents will go also. When punishment comes, it comes in general. It reaches those who were doing it and it reaches those who were not. Those who were innocent go as shaheed. Those who were not innocent, Allah gives them hardship. And the Prophet (s) said, "Ya Ayesha we are a nation that Allah gave mercy (ummatun marhooma)." So Allah gives us hardship in dunya to clean them for the next life. That is because the dunya has no value even compared to that of a mosquito. It might be the wing of the mosquito has more value than all of this dunya. So is He .
And Allah has a lot of means to do that. He is not waiting for other people. He might make some people to fight others. Say: "He hath power to send calamities on you, from above and below, or to cover you with confusion in party strife, giving you a taste of mutual vengeance - each from the other. See how We explain the signs by various (symbols); that they may understand." [6:65 ]. And Allah has many ways and means, not many, but infinite. And no one can do anything. They say "nature is angry." Allah is not happy, Allah is angry with what is going on. One time sayyidina Musa said, "O my Lord, when you send you revenge on some people, many innocents are included." Is there an answer for that? Allah said, "Ya Musa, go to that forest and see a rock and sit on that rock and wait for My answer." He was kaleemullah speaking to Allah without intermediary.
So he went to that rock and waited for that answer. And where he was sitting there was a nest of ants. Allah ordered the ants to go and climb on his leg. And Musa was not feeling them as they were climbing his calf. Then Allah ordered one ant of these hundreds to bite him. So one ant bit Sayyidina Musa and since he was in pain he pressed on his leg and crushed all the ants. Allah said, "Ya Musa, when adhaab comes, whoever is in that area, it will hit him." That is why Sayyidina Lut was ordered to take his children and go out. Sayyidina Nuh was ordered to take the believers with him because when adhaab comes it is gone. Because at that time when adhaab comes it does not leave anyone.
When Sayyidina Muhammad came, he asked Allah, "Don't make my nation like those before when you would take them all at one time." Allah accepted that du`a and said, "I will not take them all at once, but they will fight amongst themselves." Now Allah is giving us lessons to learn and He has a lot of signs. And everything is obeying Allah. Everything is waiting for Allah's Orders. When Allah's Orders come, no one can stop events. And these Allah's Orders are coming in the way of an inspiration or a way of understanding that people might not be aware of but there is a way of ordering, by which heavenly orders come.
When Allah's Will comes, it goes from His Ocean of Wills to His Ocean of Knowledge. When the Essence, when Dhatullah, the unknown, absolute unknown, that even Sayyidina Muhammad was told, qul huw Allahu ahad. Hu means the Absolute Unknown. When you say Allah, that encompasses the 99 names and attributes. You cannot know more than the Attributes and Names: The Generous; the Veiler; the Merciful. When He wants something, then the attribute al-`Aalim, takes and plans it and then His Attribute of al-Qaadir executes it. And when qudrah, through the name al-Qaadir, when the power appears through His qudrah, that is energy. Every moment a creation is coming into existence. Not just our earth. What is earth? That is nothing but the head of a pin in this universe, it is nothing.
And if someone will only think a little bit, they say that the earth moved a fraction in its spinning around its axis, due to that earthquake, because it was a big earthquake. But they did not say who made this earth to spin around its axis. If there are scientists and geniuses today, can they make the earth to rotate clockwise? Or can they make it stop rotating? Who is making the earth to rotate? It is something beyond the mind. If people think about it a little, people would be in sajda day and night, because there is not one moment to waste. If you waste your time not in sajda, then you are wasting your time.
Common people are not in that mood. Awliya are in that mood. Is Azraeel coming with punishment or mercy. That is why you see them always in worship, either thru prayers or helping others or visiting sick people or advice or counseling for Allah's sake. Not something else. We are busy in all kinds of things that make us to deviate from what Allah wants us to be. Wa maa khalaqta al-jinn wal-ins ill-liy`abudoon I have only created Jinns and men, that they may serve Me. [51:56]. No Sustenance do I require of them, nor do I require that they should feed Me. [51:57]. Whoever does that Allah will provide for them. That is for normal people. But those who are doing for dunya and working hard for
dunya and giving in Allah's way, that is considered worship for them. Those who do in dunya and help the poor as if they are in Allah's way all the time, like awliya, who are always in sajda.
But those who are running after dunya. Allah will have a different judgment for them. Sayyidina Musa pressed on his leg and caused all the ants to die. Anyone who goes in a disaster, especially in drowning, the Prophet (s) said, "Whoever died in drowning or died in a fire is shaheed." Because Allah sent His reminder to His servants. The One who made the earth to spin on its axis no one can say to Him anything, it is His Will, He can make it spin the other direction or to stop spinning or to blow it up completely.
Everything is praising Allah, but you cannot understand their praises. Why when someone speaks, you can hear. The sound comes in a vibration and it enters the ear inside which are three bones and these then drum on a coiled tube which contains many nerves, and in this way the waves are picked up by these nerves. And when we speak we generate waves and we hear. Why then cannot we hear whatever is making the tasbih. Our ears are not cleaned or not tuned. No they are not tuned. It means the different wavelengths that are made by these minerals and creations. The earth has its own tasbih, the moon has its own tasbih and whatever is on earth as well has its tasbih.
You see these walkie-talkies that you buy. Each one has its own frequency. They can hear according to the frequency that they are assigned. Allah made human beings to create machines that can listen to different aspects of the human body and read it, they can read the heart and graph it. You can see that EKG. You can hear only a sound using a stethoscope; you can tell generally if that heart is good. But they sometimes put that instrument there to detect the heart. When it goes flat what does it mean? inna lillah wa inna ilayhi raji`oon
You cannot know that until that line becomes zero. It means every star is praising Allah, and every constellation, in its own vibrations. That is why from far they are receiving these vibrations. That means they are at a different frequency. Ma zaala abdee yataqarabu ilaya bin-nawaafil hatta uhibuh. Fa idha ahbabtahu kuntu sam`aulladhee yasma`u bihi wa basar-ulladhee yubsiroo bihi wa yadah-ulladhee yabtashu bihi wa rijlah-ulladhee yamshee bihi. "My servant approaches Me thru voluntary worship until I will be the ears which he can hear with.." It means these vibrations can be heard. That is what differs awliya from normal people. That is different kinds of vibrations, like ultraviolet light. And that is not just a different kind of vibration but it is a different language.
"You cannot understand their tasbih" It means they are speaking a form of language. Look for computers, how many languages are there? [200, 300] Where is that language? Can you name some of these? And what they did for all these languages to speak with each other, they innovated a software to speak with each other. They are all different frequencies but that software can interact with all different languages. If that can be done with software, what do you think that Allah cannot give such a software to His Messenger who went on Isra and Mi`raj.
Similarly there are so many languages that can be seen and understood from those who are inheriting from the Prophet (s). That you must understand. Sometimes you have movie stage and there is a magician. That magician begins to take from the hat rabbits. How many? He keeps taking out. Or he waves his hand and he makes someone disappear. That is from the two angels of Sulayman. They followed what the evil ones gave out (falsely) against the power of Solomon: the blasphemers Were, not Solomon, but the evil ones, teaching men Magic, and such things as came down at babylon to the angels Harut and Marut. But neither of these taught anyone (Such things) without saying: "We are only for trial; so do not blaspheme." They learned from them the means to sow discord between man and wife. But they could not thus harm anyone except by Allah's permission.
And they learned what harmed them, not what profited them. And they knew that the buyers of (magic) would have no share in the happiness of the Hereafter. And vile was the price for which they did sell their souls, if they but knew! [2:102] Wa labis ma sharaw bihi anfusahum. Allah is saying that they are teaching people how to separate people from each other to create confusion and not to give benefit to each other. What to these magicians do. They change the frequency of the light that is being emitted. So that frequency. so when they move their hands they change the frequency. And then you cannot see what is on the stage. Or they show you the frequency of a rabbit.
If that is a magician what about the Prophet (s)? What about the sahaba even. Sayyidina Umar in one second was reaching to Saariya from Madinah al-munawwarah to Sham. "and such things as came down at babylon to the angels Harut and Marut. But neither of these taught anyone (Such Things) without saying: "We are only for trial; so disbelieve no." If people are inheriting from shaytan how do these square-headed people say that no one is inheriting from the Prophet (s)? Where did they throw this kind of knowledge, tassawuf. And they are becoming so obnoxious that they cannot see these frequencies.
They learned from them the means to sow discord between man and wife. And how bad indeed was that for which they sold themselves if they but knew. If that is the case, everything has its language, when you have the pure right heart, alaa bi-dhikrillah tatma'in al-quloob. "Those who believe, and whose hearts find satisfaction in the remembrance of Allah. for without doubt in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find satisfaction. [13:28]
Allah gave a language to earth and ordered it to praise Him more and more in a certain place because too much corruption is there. When that praise begins it causes too much boiling. Kaana tastajeer. Earth was crying, asking Allah swt and boiling asking for heavenly support on that night. Asking heavenly power to come on earth. Asking Allah to send his awliya, to send them to take that corruption. Calling for Mahdi to come. And that sound was coming from that area. That Indonesia area, there are a lot of awliya there, lot of Muslim jinn there. In that whole area, Thailand, India, Sri Lanka, the Indian ocean.
They were asking to send heavenly power from up. Hajj is coming. Dunya.. Most hadith had happened. Look in books of hadith, Sahih Muslim and Bukhari. Dunya is coming to its end. They were praising and praising and praising so much and that went up from that area. Those who understand the language of vibration, given purity, they know what is going on. Don't think earthquake come haphazard like that. They say there is a belt of earthquakes. That is the belt of awliya, and jinn. Those are main stations of awliya and jinn. They are yastajeeroona billah. That is the small shake wait for the big shake. When the entire earth will shake altogether. O mumin try to learn the language of the earth, of the sun, of the moon. Learn the language of the universe. Then you will be saying like the Prophet (s), "If you know what I know you will cry a lot and laugh a little."
We are not created to only run after bad desires. May Allah protect us from the big one that is coming. The Prophet (s) said, "too many earthquakes will occur in the last days." Four years ago Mawlana Shaykh said to me, "My son, there will be coming a day in the very near future, that you will be hearing that 100,000 died, 500,000 died a whole city disappeared." Muhyiddeen ibn Arabi said that there will come a day that people will be walking on dead bodies. Now you can see that. No one believed him, still they speak bad about him. What do you think when the big one comes, idha zulzilat al-ardu zilzalaha. We have to try our best. We are not Sahaba, we are not awliya. Because you are weak and helpless, inna ma `amaalu bin-niyyaat. Every action is by intention.
You only have to make your intention. We cannot do what the Prophet (s) is doing. We cannot do what Sahaba are doing. We cannot do like awliya are doing. We can only do like an ant. Earth is still seeking refuge in Him from the corruption that is going on until today. Those resorts were resorts for corruption. Now they are no longer there. They are doing in the Gulf many resorts now. They are making a resort in the Gulf out of many islands and they are in the shape of the whole world. And they are selling homes there, so you can buy for example, on Somalia island, a home there.
And all kinds of prostitution and fornication and drinking is taking place there.That is coming for them also. Allah is not leaving them. Anyone that comes against Allah, Allah comes against them. May Allah save us and save us from corrupted people.

Bigger Tsunami Will Happen
Suhbat by Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani qs.
Ba'da dhikr Khatm Khawajagan
A'uudzu billahi minasy syaithanirrajiim, Bismillaahirrahmanirrahiim. Nawaytul Arba'in, Nawaytul I'tikaf, Nawaytul Khalwah, Nawaytul 'Uzlah Nawaytur Riyadah, Nawaytus Suluuk, Lillahi ta'alaa. Athi'ullaaha wa athi'urrasuula wa ulil amri minkum (QS An Nisa' 4: 59)
Allah SWT orders us to obey Him, to obey Prophet/Rasul (s) and to obey our leaders or people who are in authority. Allah does not like us to disobey.
Allah said: "Innaa Nahnu Nazzalna dz-dzikraa wa innaa lahuu lahaafizhuun" (QS Al Hijr 15:9), "Surely We have revealed Adh-Dhikr (the Reminder) and We will most surely be its guardian (literally: We save it)". That Dhikr (The Reminder) is revealed only to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (s), not to anyone else. Revealed to him through the Archangel Sayyidina Jibril 'alaihissalam. The general meaning of Adh-Dhikr is Holy Quran. It means everything in the Holy Quran. It means everything in the whole creation because Allah said: "Wa laa rotbin wa laa yaabisin illaa fii kitabin mubiin (QS Al-An'aam 6:59)" "nor anything green nor dry but (it is all) in a clear book (Holy Quran)". Living or non-living is in the Holy Quran.
Holy Quran: is Divine Knowledge that Allah SWT bestows and gives to Prophet (s) over or about the whole creation, before the time of the Prophet (s) and after the time of the Prophet (s). That is why, Holy Quran mentioned stories of previous ummah (nations) and also future scientific knowledge. Also, Hadits of the Prophet (s), the Tradition,
is also revelation. Allah mentioned in the Holy Quran: "Wa maa yanthiqu 'anil hawa', in huwa illa wahyuy yuuhaa" (QS. An-Najm 53:3-4) "Nor does he speak out of desire. It is naught but revelation that is revealed".
Real Ulama' (Awliyaullah - the Saints of Allah) can extract meaning and secrets from Words, from letters of the Holy Quran. Normal Ulama only study here and there (to know what is already talked/written in books). Prophet (s) is given that Knowledge from Allah, then Prophet (s) divide the Knowledge to his Sahabah(s). Every one is a star, a guide (to humanity), carrying different Hadits that Prophet has given to him. And the inheritors of the Sahabah, i.e. Awliya'ullah, carry that Knowledge also.
[Like what was mentioned in previous suhbat on 1st January 2005] Innocent people died with people who are not innocent. Both of them under certaiin tajalli of Allah's names. The innocents will go with those who are not innocent. Why? Remember the story of sayyidina Musa 'alaihissalam (told in previous suhbat) when he asked Allah about Allah's Justice. Then Allah told him to wait in the forest. Then hundreds of ants crawling on him. When only one of the ants bit him, he immediately smashed all of them to death.
We have to learn from this lesson: Death come with no notice, at anytime, at any place, at any occasion. When 'ajal (death) came, no one can run away. But, if 'ajal is not written, even he/she is in the middle of explosion, in the middle of earth quake, in the middle of
ocean, then he/she will be safe. Allah took whom He wants. We do not know why, and we can not ask why. Allah said (in the verse mentioned above), "We preserve the Holy Book
untill Judgement Day, and (including) the secrets in it , is going to be 'saved' " 'To be saved' means to be poured into someone's container that can take this and save it until the time it (the secret) will (should) appear. Like nowadays, if we'd like to save anything into our computers, we press the button 'save'. If we don't do it, it will disappear. That 'saving' means to be saved into different frequency of vibration.
The technology available nowadays, already mentioned by the Holy Quran to the Prophet (s) 1400 years ago. But, we cannot understand it. [Allah said] "Wa in min syai-in illaa yusabbihu bihamdihi wa laakin laa tafqahuuna tasbiihahum" (QS Al-Isra' 17:44), "and there is not a single thing but glorifies Him with His praise, but you do not understand their glorification". It (the Knowledge, the Secret) is saved, but we do not have the Technology to extract them out. Allah SWt said (in the same verse, the beginning part): "Tusabbihu lahuu s-samaawaatu s-sab'u wa l-ardhu wa man fiihinna" [QS Al-Isra' 17:44] "The seven heavens declare His glory and the earth (too), and those who are in them;" It means everything is glorifying Him, but you cannot understand their glorification.
In other verse (QS Al-Hijr 15:9): "Surely We have revealed Adh-Dhikr (the Reminder) and We will most surely be its guardian (literally: We save it)" It means every creation is saved in the Holy Quran. It means all the frequency of vibrations. Like in computer: we save everything (every kind of data, ed.) into computer as frequency (of number) from 0 to 1.
Awliya'ullah, what they inherited in their heart(s) from the Prophet (salla-Allahu 'alayhi wasallam) are with different frequencies. They can decode them by pressing "the button" which is the Asmaul Husna (the Beautiful Names of Allah), and all this knowledge come out onto "screen" in front of them, like now they have this teleprompter in front of the news presenter. What is written in the teleprompter comes out from computer.
All this number is from 0 to 1. As you become 0, and you will be given 1, the Knowledge.(Allah said) "We revealed it, and save it". It means Kalamullah (Words of Allah) can not be changed. Everything in the Quran is to be taken out at its time. This Awliya' know. So, when they see that [as Allah mentioned] "Zhaharal fasaadu fil barri wal bahri bimaa kasabat aydin naas..." [QS. Ar-Ruum 30:41]. "Corruption has appeared in the land and the sea on account of what the hands of men have wrought," they are asking Allah, yastajiruuna billaah. Everything glorifying and praising Allah. That glorification was moving so much like thunder that then it moves the earth. Awliyaullah are too many in that area, and they were praising and praising too much that it shakes everything. When everything shakes, everything goes.
The Earth turns around its axis (rotation). When it turns, it creates magnetic field that protects the Earth from radiation from outside. Allah said in the Holy Quran in Suurah Al-Anbiya' (Surah no. 21): "wa yaquuluuna mataa haadzal wa'du in kuntum saadiqiin" [QS 21:38, see also 10:48 and 36:48]. "And they say: When will this threat come about, if you are truthful?" They said, "When it will happen...?" "Idzaa Zulzilatil Ardhu Zilzaalahaa" [QS.az-Zalzalah 99:1] "When the earth is shaken with her (violent) shaking," That Tsunami in Asia that just happened is just the beginning. Muhyiddin Ibn 'Arabi mentioned in Futuhat al-Makkiyyah, that there will be a time when a child's hair will grow White, because 6 out of 7 people will die. Look now, leaders are (still able) going to that place (to Indonesia for holding a Summit over the Tsunami, ed.). What is coming in front of us is much bigger, no more leaders. Everyone is devastated.
Allah said: "Bal ta'tiihim baghtatan fa-tabhatuhum falaa yastathii'uuna raddahaa wa laa hum yunzharuun" [QS Al-Anbiya' 21:40]. "Nay, it shall come on them all of a sudden and cause them to become confounded, so they shall not have the power to avert it, nor shall they be respited." What just happened (the Tsunami in Asia) is a small sign. Wait until
you see the big sign. Six out of seven people will go (will die, ed.) So, if now the Earth has 6 billion population, only 800 million will remain alive. It will be more than earthquake.
There are two kind of punishment:
1. From above, from every direction (from outside)
2. From within
Allah mentioned in Qs Anbiya' 21:44 "Bal matta'naa haa-ulaa-i wa aabaa ahum hattaa thoola 'alaihimu l-'umur" "Nay, We gave provision to these and their fathers until life was prolonged to them." They have plan for (their) future, up in 5 years, for their next 10 years, 20 years, etc. Look how people are now running to help the victims of Tsunami. That is important, to help other people (with food, shelter, medicine, etc). But, remember also to help people for their aakhirah. They are not thinking about this.
[in the continuation of the ayah, verse] "Afalaa yarauna annaa na'til ardha nanqushuhaa min athraafihaa. Afahumu l-ghaalibuun" [QS 21:44] "Do they not then see that We are visiting the land, curtailing it of its sides? Shall they then prevail?" Gradually, We (Allah) reduce the land which is in their control. So, reducing the border. Who is going to win? We or them? It came to them where people do not think it's going to come. That is, it came from the ocean. From the border. (As Allah mentioned in the verse, "nanqushuhaa min athrafihaa, reducing the land from its border from the ocean on the coast area, ed.)
Angels are seeking refuge, Awliya' seeking refuge, The Earth is also seeking refuge. When you hold a wire, a long wire, and you shake it at one end, a vibration or a wavelength will be created. So, what happened is Angel was just touching, taking the praises and glorification (from Awliya'), touching at one end, and making a line vibration. We have to praise day and night in order that that vibration (caused by the touch of the Angel at one end) does not destroy th whole world. And this is just a small sign!! "annaa na'til ardha nanqushuhaa min athraafihaa.." Gradually reducing... means the Earth is reduced. The protective layer of the Earth, Allah SWT will flip it inside, destroying Earth... when 6 out of 7 people will die.
Don't say, "How is it going to happen?" Even if Awliya' had told you before that a Tsunami would happen (in Asia, ed), you would not have believed them. After this Tsunami (the Asia Tsunami) happened, bigger than this Tsunami will happen!! This is to remind people of Akhirah. The Day of Judgement is coming. And it will not differentiate old or young. Look on TV: children loosing their sisters, their brothers, father, mother, grandparens, they became orphan. And that was just the result of a small tsunami.
Bigger Tsunami will happen!
Don't be afraid! If bigger tsunami comes and takes you away, at least you have done good in dunya. Fasad (Corruption in broad meanings. See previous suhbat!, ed.) must be finished. All, on these beaches, all kind of Fasad happened. And Allah does not like it so.
Do your 5 Pray. Do your charity. Do your fasting Ramadan. Do your Hajj. And make Shahadah every day. If these five pillars not enough, and you need more protection, use Ihsan, as mentioned by Prophet sall-Allahu 'alaihi wasallam.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq, bihurmatil habib Al-Faatihah.
