70,000 Veils before the Muhammadan Presence
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
The following is adapted from a swuhbah by Shaykh Muhammad Nazhim Adil al-Haqqani (q.s.) on the 16th November 2009.
The can only be One King, and one deputy, not two. Allah (s.w.t.) has only one deputy, from pre-Eternity up to Eternity; it cannot be changed. And for his honor, Allah (s.w.t.) Creates all of Creation, pre-Eternity up to Eternity.
Allah (s.w.t.) has Decreed Salutations upon the Prophet (s.a.w.), countless honours upon him. Our greetings, our glorification of the Prophet (s.a.w.) is not even an atom in the Ocean of Exaltation that Allah (s.w.t.) Grants him. Where are the Salafi “‘ulama”? Where are the Wahhabis? They cannot even follow the rest of the ummah, the Guided ones and say, “asw-Swalatu wa as-Salaamu ‘Alayka, Ya Rasulullah.” They are not ashamed to say, “Haram." They are not even on the level of the animals. Even the animals give their salutations upon the Seal of Prophets (s.a.w.).
Once, Sulthan al-‘Arifin, Shaykh Abu Yazid al-Bistami (q.s.) said that once, it came to him to approach the Ocean of Haqiqat al-Muhammadiyyah through swalawat. Shaykh Abu Yazid (q.s.) said he was unable to. An opening came to him and he saw that Haqiqat al-Muhammadiyyah was surrounded by 70,000 Veils of Nur. It was Protected from common Creation, and Veiled from all Creation, including Jibril (a.s.), Mika’il (a.s.), Israfil (a.s.), ‘Azra’il (a.s.) and even the angels who carry the ‘Arsh. It is said that one ray from that light of the Muhammadan Presence is enough to annihilate anything in Creation.
