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.

Sufism is an ocean, only the sincere seeker should seek the pearl at the bottom of the ocean. You have asked some good questions. Sufism is the esoteric science of Self-realization in the Islamic context. Sufism is the science of removing the illusion of separation between man and God. The journey of the sufi can not be told in words, the journey takes place in the heart. The sufi has the true science of soul purification. There are 7 levels of the nafs (soul). When the seven levels have been purified a marriage between the soul and the spirit takes place. When this mystical union has been reached, man and Allah are one. Allah has said ” I become the eyes he sees with, the ears he hears with, the mouth he speaks with, the hands he grasps with, the feet he walks with.” in the Holy Quran Allah has said “he indeed succeeds who purifies it.” the sufis have said that “it” refers to the soul/heart

a student has asked a question about tantra………..

Oh wise Sufi saint, how can a loving relationship between a man and woman be comparable to that of the love of the divine and is it possible that a love relationship like that can benefit all existence?

You have asked an important question man and woman are symbols of the duality that is found in the principle of the Divine. Man and woman are outward manifestations of the polarization of the Divine Light that is transcendent, beyond the planes of duality. Allah says in the Quran “I created creation in pairs.” when man and woman join together, through the union of Love, this represent Allah, knowing Himself, through the union of opposites. The sufis have said, Allah is known through HER opposites. Allah is the First, Last, Hidden, Manifest, Giver of Live, Bringer of Death. What appears to be opposites are in fact ONE Reality. This reality, when seen from the viewpoint of the mind has duality. this One Being can only Be ONE. When man and woman UNITE, this is the secret of tantra, the union of the male and female principle to manifest the DIVINE…this can benefit all existence because each person is a complete manifestation of the ALL…love and light  -sufi

786. . . Eye DON’T want to go to heaven !

12

May the Peace of Allah, your True Self, be with you. The Self Is All. All is The Self. The Divine Self manifested on this plane of duality to Know It Self. All Is One. Duality is an illusion created by the mind and the false since of “i”. There is no “i” separate from Allah. “Hu am I.” Allah is Allah. Allah is All. The only Reality that exists is One. This One is your True Self. Wake up from the dream of a false since of separateness from the Divine. If you do not find Allah in your Self, you will never find Allah. If you do not Know Allah as your True Self, you will never Know Allah. Allah/God/Brahman/Yahweh are all names of your True Self. Die before you die, the way of the sufi…

When you melt, dissolving in the Unity Ocean of Allah Almighty then you may understand the meaning of “Fani-Fillah” (Annihilation in Allah). When you abandon your position as a being in existence, when you become as a drop of rain falling from the sky and are immersed, united in that Ocean of Divine Unity, then no one can ask where that drop has gone: the drop became an Ocean.”— beloved Maulana Cheikh Nazim- sultan ul Awlia

Once when eye was sitting with my Cheikh in Senegal, i looked at him and said “Cheikh Betcio, eye don’t want to go to heaven.” My beloved Cheikh looked at me and said, “I don’t want to go either.” Then he went on to explain the Divine Proximity of Allah, which he explained, is Beyond Heaven. In the Holy Quran in Surah Waqia Allah describes three groups in the next life/world: the people on the left, the people on the right, and the foremost. It is this group, the foremost, that the sufi tries to be with, in the Divine Proximity of Allah.

It was the great sufi Cheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani who said, ” i studied the heavens and found a flaw in heaven. Heaven is not eternal. It was at this point that i turned my face towards that which is eternal, Allah.” He, may Allah grant him more Light from Nur Muhammad (alay hi salam) also said “sufism is two steps, one step out of this world into the next world/heaven, and one step out of the next world/heaven into the Divine Presence.” My cheikh said that the difference between the Divine Presence and heaven is greater than the difference between heaven and hell…heaven is the hell of the sufi. Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba said, “heaven is for my lazy disciple.”
