Ya Seen

wal Quran ul Hakeem

EYE have awoke from the dream

mind stop, time stop

motionless eternal stillness

1×1=1

multiple manifestations of the ONE

Allah Hu YOU

non dual NOT two

Only Allah can worship Allah

The master exist beyond the mind, in an eternal state of beholding the beauty of the One in its multiple states on BE-ing! Before creation there was only Allah. after creation, it is as it was. can it be that it was all so simple? the only thing that separates you from Allah, is the thought that you are separate from Allah. duality only exits in the mind. above the plane of the mind there exist an infinite pure state of Bliss, Oneness and stillness. this is the 4th state of consciousness- Turiya.

just as there is a tremendous difference between the awake state and the sleep state, there is a greater difference between Turiya and the awake state. upon entering the 4th state of consciousness, Turiya, the awakened One will see those in the awake state as sleep. this is why or beloved prophet Muhammad(peace be upon Him) has said ” all people are asleep, at the time of death they will awake.” in the Holy Quran Allah says “at the time of death the eyesight will become clear.” these two references to “death” are alluding to the sublime process of the “death before death” on the sufi path.

Death before death is the process of, bringing your square above your compass, symbolically dying on the cross, defeating the lower self and entering into the 4th state of consciousness in which the seeker becomes “dead” to the illusionary concepts of duality and separation from Allah.

the way of the sufi is death, extinction(FANA) in Allah, through the prophet Muhammad alay he salam and the living master/Cheikh. this symbolic death will bring one to the fourth state of consciousness- Turiya. “mute ta qabla mute-die b4 you die.”- Prophet Muhammad

question for disciples: what is the best way to “die before you die”? post your answers and responses in the comments below.

  1. Practice of fasting is one. For me it’s changing my character through a mental diet of dhikr and Quran. Overall its Allah’s mercy that will bring one to the state.

    Complete surrender…To let go and allow all to be as it is…To force nothing, because to force is to resist…To accept people, circumstances and things as they are, aware that all things if this physical existence are ever changing perceptions of The Unchanging Being Allah…Meditations, And prayers help to open our awareness of Oneness in Allah…This Life experience is unreal, Allah is the only reality…

  3. For me to to remember humility and to serve others even when it’s inconvenient to my self. Death of ego always with chants and posted
    Prayers

  4. We’re not we think we are. Our bodies, our mundane thoughts are illusions and other people are illusions, too. The entire world makes us think there is a “this and that”. The exoteric version of La ilaha ill Allah says There is no God but God and people think they are separate from God, but the mystic sees beyond it. I personally get tiny glimpses now, but then I’m plunked back down into this mundane world for the most part.

    Last night I struggled with the concept of “worshiping a sheikh”. It seemed so haram from an exoteric perspective. But a Sufi sees no difference between the heart’s Holiness and God. So to see beyond the Sheikh’s physical body and to see his Holy Essence is to meet the place where Fana fi Shaykh takes place. By loving the sheikh we can take our first steps in learning to love God so much we no longer need our ego or any earthly attachments getting in the way between ourselves and God. This where we get to start learning to die before we die.

    Unconditional love for the sheikh is actually the heart opening to another heart and two hearts feeling unconditional love for each other helps our hearts learn to expand in its ability to feel unconditional love for others and for God. Its like we are on the path of Love with a human being that is bi-lingual. The sheikh knows human language and the heart’s language. Alhamdulilah! How blessed we are!

  5. but everything i said is not personal or actual ways to do it. its not an actual act that can be done to work toward it. how can i actually work toward it, insha’Allah?

      For me this has been a journey of learning to love myself by Being myself, accepting the worst as well as the best of me… In doing so I’ve been able to accept the best and worst of others, to love them Inspite of themselves… By giving and doing for others for only the love of giving and doing has has revealed me as a more loving being than I ever imagined myself to be..For me I love, I accept, I allow, I let go of desires, manipulations and controls…The more I do these the more it is revealed to me that it is all myself there is no one and nothing that exist outside of me…I am no where, yet everywhere, I am nothing yet everything, I am outside of time, yet all time…The more I deny the lies, the more I reveal the Truth…I meditate, which opens me up and reveals more of my true nature as the One Being that is All, Allah…The more I love, the greater my capacity to love… The more I give, the more I receive, the more I give… The more I see the Truth, the more Truth I see…Following the guidance of my Masters reveals more to me…I am only beginning to learn The Sufi Way, I only know The Way I’ve traveled thus far…this has been my journey…

  6. Bis-mi-llah Ar Rahman Ar Rahiym 786… To die before you die is to establish oneness with Allah, Huwa thru Salaat, Dhikr, Meditation and Fasting as well moving thru the various stations of the soul from the lowest station of the ego to the highest union with Allah, A Murid Keeps Allah, Huwa on the mind at all times. Thru meditation the Salik seeker will come to know there is no separation for the seperation is an illusion of the mind called wahm.

  7. The best way is to let go and trust that you will land on your feet to walk in a different brighter light.

    How can you say allah is your true self or that you are allah? On a youtube video you said im a allah, brahman, yeweh?!!!!!!! Why would the prophet teach of allah as a higher power and to pray and worship him? Is this what the blessed sheik amadou bamba pbuh taught? Also where did ibn arabi get his ideas he claims he got them from allah!
    I am not posting this to disrespect you my muslim brother I am confused. I have been raised all my life as a salafi and to fear allah. When I read your blog especially the entry entitled the science of being god with a 7 sun and star I cried. Please let me know aki. Ya allah save us from shirk

    • 786. . .May Allah open our eye to the inner reality to Islam, self and Allah. Dear salafi brother forgive me for my ignorance for teaching these inner teachings in a public forum. Your viewpoint is correct for the outer teachings of Islam. Eye sincerely apologize for offending any Muslim in any way. Ah stog fur Allah

      • salafiwarrior

        Please explain to me brother the self as allah perhaps I am wrong and you are right all I want is to know the truth asalaam alailum

      • 786. . .as salam alaikum. “he who knows himself, knows his Lord(Allah).” – Prophet Muhammad. Allah says in the Quran that He breathed the soul directly into man. after this Allah commanded the angels to bow down unto man. in islam the Only One we bow to is Allah. from this point of view the soul-true self, is what the angels where bowing to, not the outer form of man. knowing the self to be Allah has nothing to do with the physical body. that essence, soul-spirt that gives man life is Allah. this essence is the true self, soul, of man. the soul is not separate from Allah. the soul is the true self of man.

  10. PEACE ALLAH, FOR ME IS SIMPLE AND PRACTICAL: REMAIN HUMBLE AND POSITIVE, FAST, MEDITATE AND ELEVATE FROM EVIL AND ALL LEVELS OF NEGATIVITY. WHEN WE DO THIS BY STUDYING, WE ARE IN OUR RIGHT AND SUPREME MIND (ALLAH).
