MATLABUL FAWZANI INSTITUTE

RECLAIM YOUR AFRICAN ISLAMIC HERITAGE

“Be the change you want to see in the world!” With this concept in mind, we are creating the online Murid-sufi studies institute based on the teachings of Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba from Touba Senegal. MATLABUL FAWZANI means The Request for Victory. It is a qaside that was written by Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba. It is said that this qaside brings the blessings of the holy city of Touba wherever it is located. MATLABUL FAWZANI is also a very special courtyard in the house of our beloved Serigne Saliou Mbacke. It is the very spot we often visited Serigne Saliou with our beloved Cheikh Betcio Thioune.

786. . . the non dual salat(prayer) of Ihsan !

Butterfly_9
Barkay Serigne Saliou 7x
La ee la ha ill Allah…

“The TAHLIL is the highest prayer of worship and oneness.”

The notion of duality results from the illusion of an external God. Here lies my question. What is the difference in how the following two men perform salat.
1) He’s devout, pious and believes God is somewhere “out there” in the heavens. Makes salat faithfully.
2) He’s also devout, pious, but he’s an extreme monotheist. He takes La ee la ha ill Allah literally. Makes salat faithfully.
What is the the mental/spiritual/emotional difference in how they approach and experience salat? Same motions, same words…can you describe the difference within their mindset as they approach prayer? Peace-Cheikh Mortada Yasin

786…. Barkay Serigne Saliou 7x

 The 1st salat is the salat of duality and approach to the Divine presence. The 2nd salat is the salat of Oneness and ascension. The 1st salat is the salat of one who has Islam, the second salat is the salat of one Hu has reached the exalted station of Ihsan. The 1st worshiper see’s himself as other than Allah, and begins his prayer with the idea of separateness and remoteness from Allah. The 2nd worshiper, having an understanding of the inner esoteric meaning of La ee la ha ill Allah(God is the Only Reality) does not perceive of duality or any other being having existence with Allah. From this lofty view point the worshiper does not see his self as separate from Allah and starts his prayer from the view point of Oneness with God.

786...the 3 deaths on the sufi path

Our beloved nabi Muhammad alay he salam has said “the salat is the miraj(night journey of ascension) of the true believer.” In the salat all of the 70,000 veils of light between Allah and man are dropped and the worshiper stands face to face with his Lord. When the worshiper has reached the station of as-shaheed (the witness) the face they behold will be none other than their own face. the Murid sufi way is from Allah, to Allah, with Allah, in Allah. Our beloved Bawa Muhayadeen has said “only Allah can pray to Allah.”

Thanks for asking this deep question. lets converse via email during this holy month of Ramadan and insha Allah we can bring some clarity to your questions about traveling this beautiful path of Oneness….

786. . . special Sufi prayers for the month of Ramadan

bamba1.jpg

The Holy month of fasting, the friend of the true believer, Ramadan has approached us. During this most sacred month our beloved prophet Muhammad, may eternal peace and blessings be upon Him, asked all believers to increase 2 important things: seeking forgiveness and the repetition of the exalted zikr La ee la ha ill Allah(God is the Only Reality). With this wisdom of the beloved of Allah, Muhammad alay he salam we are sharing these special prayers for the nights of Ramadan.

Each night the Murid on this path should recite:

786 Autistic and Free !

At work eye often eat lunch with the “autistic” students

This one is dedicated to the Autistic and Free students eye have come to know and love….

Let us act with compassion, and be non judgemental of those we don’t understand

sufi OM sat chi ananda

Just because I

Forget that I can walk every time I stand up

And need to be reminded that its ok to take the 1st step

Or

I snap my fingers about 15x times before I can start a sentence

Don’t feel sorry for me

Or treat me different

My reality is my reality

And I don’t need your judgement

Your T-shirt says

End the use of the “R” word (retarded)

But stupid is as stupid does

And to me its stupid that

You look down on me

I enjoy my freedom

I think working a job from 9-5

 Thinking you will one day be financially free to live the American dream

That often times ends up as a nightmare

Is retarded

I may be “Autistic”

But

You are a slave to the system

Addicted to the pursuit of happiness

Lacking any spiritual vision

Living in a world of lies and illusion

Rat race not the human race

If you miss one pay check

You could be homeless

Or end up in mental institution

Talking to yourself in a diaper made for adults

Wondering how it all took a turn for the worst so fast

I laugh at your new I phone you paid 500$ for

But you pay no attention to what your child is downloading on the net

Your just a slave to the system

Drug addict of the matrix

Trapped inside of a false idea of self

And Im Free

So Free

Autistic

In my own world…..

786. . . The Alchemy of Truth !

786

Haqq

Truth is the philosophers stone that changes base medals(human qualities) into Gold(God’s qualities). Just as mercury is the base of many al-chemical-formulas, TRUTH is the foundation of all internal esoteric alchemy. Without truth, the seeker stands in the quick sand of illusion. Truth is often times underrated. Eager mystics seek difficult complex means for spiritual elevation. These means often result in a confused mass of ego and falsehood. The seeker thinks “eye have found the secret key to realization, my knowledge is above the other seekers.” This idea is a poison that goes against the nature of realization. In the Quran Allah says ” you did not argue until knowledge came to you.”

The seeker of Self Realization must stand In Truth. When the Light of God shines in the heart all falsehood will vanish in the blink of an eye. Truth is the foundation of the mystic path. All thoughts, words and actions of the seeker must be based in 100% Truth. It took over 20 years for eye to come to this realization. Without having your life based in 100% Truth, all of your prayers, fasting, mantra, zikr and study amount to nothing in the eye sight of God. On a deeper level without 100% Truth in the seekers life, some of the Higher powerful alchemical practices will be detrimental to the elevation of the practitioner.

23-al-haqq

Breaking through the illusion

Truth immortal shines

Light and darkness can not exist in the same space and time

Deep inside of Truth one finds a Goldmine/mind

Un-wind the sleeping serpent at the base of the spine

With 100% Truth

God-Self find

-sufi

Al Haqq (theTruth) is one of the 99 names of Allah. When the seeker affirms this attribute/name of TRUTH within their entire BEING it becomes the catalyst for the activation of the other 98 names of Allah on the plane of the soul of the seeker. When this name manifested IN me the cement wall of lies, arrogance, illusion, deceit and falsehood was shattered to oblivion. Internal Alchemy is based on Al Haqq !

Living in the Light of Truth !

We tried reasoning
our way to Him:
it did not work;
but the moment we gave up,
no obstacle remained.

He introduced himself to us
out of kindness: how else
could we have known him?
Reason took us as far as the door;
but it was his presence that let us in.

But how will you ever know him,
as long as you are unable
to know yourself?

Once one is one,
no more, no less:
error begins with duality;
unity knows no error.

The road your self must journey on
lies in polishing the heart.
It is not by rebellion and discord
that the heart’s mirror is polished free
of the rust of hypocrisy and unbelief:
your mirror is polished by your certitude –
by the unalloyed purity of your faith.

Break free
from your chains you have forged about yourself;
for you will be free when you are…

786. . . The coffee was Free !

786

The essence of your mind does not exist as stillness or thinking.

All phenomena that appear are merely the unobstructed

manifestation of the display of your mind.

black_onyx_mala

Some times in life, the coffee is FREE! Last night eye was returning to philly from a sufi lecture and zikr circle we were invited to give in Boston. While switching buses in NY at about 11pm eye went for a cup of coffee in china town. Because of the way eye was dressed the man behind the counter, in a deep indian accent asked me with a puzzled look on his face, “where are Hu from?” eye smiled and said as eye all ways do when asked this question “eye am from Allah, where are you from brother?” even more confused he said “i am from india, i was asking you where are you from, but you said Allah/God?” my response was “arnt we all from God?” the elderly man smiled and said “Hari Krishna yes, yes, yes we are all from God. Shiva Ram, your coffee is FREE today my friend.”

in the Quran Allah says “surely reminding is good for the believers.” My answer to his question was a reminder to him to all ways remember and focus on God and not the outer appearance of race, religion or culture. The mind creates duality and differences. But the essence of all is God. Allah is the substratum of every atom. in fact the word Adam in arabic, on an inner level, means something that does not exist. in reality we do not exist with a Self separate from God. this is why in Tibetan Buddhism they teach there is NO self. Is the essence of the wave different from the essence of the Ocean? God is the Omnipresent Ocean of Bliss, we exist as waves from the Ocean of God……. when you know this, the coffee(mind) is Free! love and light- Cheikh Salihu – sufi
