Serigne Fallou, Jalal & Sufi
“the sufi is the son of the moment.”- sufi proverb…. a sufi lives in the NOW. for a true sufi there is no past, present, future, day, or night. a sufi lives in a state beyond time and space in oneness with the Divine. a sufi lives in the 4th chakra-the heart-the closest place to find Allah. a sufi lives in the ocean of LOVE. in fact, a sufi is one HU has died in the ocean of love. a true sufi practices the alchemical science of taskiya tul nafs (purification of the soul). the life of a sufi is a life of remembrance, love and service(kidma) to God. a sufi is a worshiper of the Divine Light of Allah that dwells in the hearts of all living Beings. a sufi only see’s GOD. for a sufi there can be no other reality or existence other than GOD. for a sufi ALL religions are TRUE!!! a sufi can see the inner esoteric truth of all religions. a sufi is a christian to a christian, a jew to a jew, a hindu to a hindu, a buddhist to a buddhist, and a muslim to a muslim.
the first day eye met my beloved cheikh, Cheikh Betcio, in senegal he said to me “the only one closer to Allah than you, is the one HU loves Allah more than you.” the founder of our sufi order, Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba, wrote in one of his sufi poems, “my religion is the religion of LOVE.” love love love. the way of the sufi is love. love is a wave, that takes the traveler to its source, the Ocean, Allah. just as the wave and the ocean are one, love and Allah-God are ONE.
the Ocean of Love
drowned in a river
the river took me to the Ocean
the river was
the Ocean was
living in the ever-present now
the illusion of duality
seeing God as
the only Reality
eye live in love
love lives in eye
all EYE see
Love is a flame in the heart that burns All leaving only the Beloved. When two people experience true Love they disappear and become One. In disappearing and becoming One, the two people lose all since of self. When the since of self disappears the only thing left is GOD-LOVE. The way of the Sufi is Love. true Love of God leads to death and dying in God. Sufi master Bawa Muhaiyadeen teaches that “when you are there, God is not. when you(ego) are not there, God Is.” I die daily that God may live through me as ME. The beloved prophet Muhammad(peace be upon Him) once said “die before you die.” In this process of death before death, the lover loses all since of self(ego-separation-duality) and is resurrected into the conscious Oneness with God. Re-gaining the lost consciousness of our innate Oneness with God is the purpose of life. A seed is planted in the ground to become a Flower. Man-Woman come to earth to become -realize-know-remember their ONENESS with God. It is as if God is playing hide and seek with Himself from behind the hiding place of YOU. In union with Love, by the power of Love, God-LOVE wins the game, and YOU(lover) no longer exist. God exist as U. Love reigns supreme! Love reigns supreme! Love reigns supreme! A Love supreme, a Love supreme, Allah supreme, Allah supreme…..living in the light of love—sufi ananda
… may the peace light and blessings of Allah be with you !!! al hum do li la for the true seeker on the true tariqat of the sufi way! sufism is the inner esoteric way of islam. sufism is a path of love. sufism is the science of taskiya tul nafs(purification of the soul-self). all of the ancient islamic scholars accepted sufism as an authentic aspect of islam. it is only the modern day scholars that do not accept it. sufism is a part of the sunnah of our beloved prophet Muhammad alay he salam. sufism accepts the truth of all religions and is founded in religious tolerance.
SUFI MASTER BAWA MUHAIYADEEN
you have asked many good questions. on the sufi path, yes a seeker must have a shaikh. there are many dangers on this path. the true master/ shaikh, holds the clear road map for the traveler that enables them to safely walk the path and avoid the dangers/pitfalls of the path. in islam there is no monasticism. our beloved prophet Muhammad alay he salam has said “he/she who does not marry is not of me.” my shaikh once told me “i can only take a disciple so far who is not married.” it is recommended for you to marry if you can but remember that a partner who is not on the path can be a hindrance to the path.
time is of the essence. try to find a spiritual guide of the sufi way to help you walk this tariqat. in sufism there are 4 main levels: shariat, tariqat, haqiqat and marifat. my advice to you is to study these 4 main branches of the path, and then look for a shaikh who is a master of all 4 levels.
thank you for your questions. lets keep in contact. feel free to ask any questions you have. in islam we are one family. let there be love between all of the ummah of our beloved nabi Muhamad peace and blessings be upon him and his family!!!!
love and light to you—– sufi ananda
…the Science of BEing God!! La ee la ha ill Allah – Allah IS the Only Reality!!!
let there BE Light and Moor Light… the science of BEing God has nothing to do with anything external. it is the internal science of purifying the self (taskiya tul nafs). it is the high science of internal al-chem-my on the self/soul. this science turns base medals(human qualities) into gold(Allahs qualities). Noble Drew Ali introduced us to this science by teaching that the higher Self is Allah. in the 5% nation we learned that the “black man is God.” what does this all mean???
Black means original. Man means mind. in esoteric essence/science this statement has no-thing to do with color. it means that the Original mind of man is God. our minds have been grafted away from that which is original, thus becoming devil!!! the way of the sufi is to reclaim the original mind set before the allegorical fall of man/God. how is this done???? this is the science of BEing Allah. in fact, YOU CAN NEVER BE OTHER THAN ALLAH, because Allah is the ONLY reality!!! we create the illusion of separation from God by our negative devilish thoughts words and actions. the sufis say ” say ALLAH until you become that which you are saying.” the way to purify the mind is zikr(the recitation of the 99 names of Self-Allah). witness the build of the God, God Cipher Divine Allah.
this science is NOT for the un-initiated. and normally eye God Allah do not build in public forums because this science is only for about 5% of the population. it was NEVER taught in public. when our beloved Prophet Muhammad-peace be upon Him, would teach this science, sufism, he would only teach from behind a closed locked door, and before He would start he would first ask “are there any new people here.”
there in no birth and death for the soul. Islam knows no birth record. time never was when man was not. man is an eternal Being having a human experience. one of the sufi masters eye studied with in west Africa once said to me “Allah inters into the void.” we have false idols-thoughts that create a false separation from God. the point with-in the circle. the mind must becomes one pointed on God. like a man drowning calls for oxygen. we must call forth the BEing of Allah into our full cipher from the plane of the spirit, to the plane of the soul, to the physical plane thus becoming true God body. “when Allah Loves them, Allah will become the eyes that they see with, the ears they hear with, the tongue they speak with, the hands they grasp with, and the feet they walk with.” Hadith-saying of Prophet Muhammad.
there are 7 levels of the soul that must be purified to reclaim our innate Oneness with GOD. we have been grafted from the Higher self. but before we can come to the level of working on the 7 levels of the soul, we must purify the mind and the heart. Man does not become God. man is an illusion. God exist as man, but man has moved away from His original nature and must remove the illusion through the internal al-chem-my science of Self remembrance and purification….
as salam alaikum—- LOVE AND LIGHT!!!! OM SHANTI OM
sufi andna bey
eye manifest divinity
me, myself, and eye,
Form the Holy Trinity
my essence knows no multiplicity
The vibration of light slowed down creates matter
Meditation stills the chatter
of the mind
The first rung of the ladder
is hard to find
It lies at the base of the spine
eye have been in heaven several times
When the serpent started to climb
eye was intoxicated by celestial wine
Engulfed by the light
in reality eye do not exist
The lover dies in the love of the fire of the beloved’s kiss
I am that I am
eye am approaching divinity
18,000 universes exist inside of me
The self of the Self can only be measured by infinity
Definitely, definitively eye am approaching divinity
Seeing myself beyond the body on the astral plane of the soul
was completely perplexing
Etheric light body
kissed by 3 immortal fish
from the see of darkness 4 gates in in the sky opened
Some things are not to be spoken
Extreme states of bliss preceded gnosis
disappearing in oneness from the closeness
eye manifest divinity
me, myself, and God
form the Holy Trinity
My essence knows no multiplicity
The vibration of light slowed down made me. –
