Habib Umar ibn Hafiz 07-08

Dowra notes eleven

The birth of a child comes from stage to stage

This is why we teach for period so that a person learns steadily over a period of time

Adam (upon him peace) was clay for 40 days before he came to life

Whoever doesn’t have zhud after 40 days doesn’t have wisdom, then they weren’t sincere

People have preceded us yet we can catch up

Khudafa (May Allah be pleased with her) asked the Prophet (Peace and blessings upon him) what is sincerity, he asked Gibrail who asked Allah he said, “Its one of the secrets that I place in the heart of my slave.”

If there is no sincerity then the person would want these 40 days to pass quickly

Aisha (May Allah be pleased with her) said the Prophet (Peace and blessing upon him) started revelation with a true dream which came to him like true dawn, then he started to love isolation in the cave of hira

Even the Quresh used to say that the Prophet (Peace and blessing upon him) used to love Allah Subhnau wa Ta'ala before revelation

He used to stay from 10 days to 40 days

Until Gibril (upon him peace) came with the revelation

No one loved Allah Subhanu wa Ta'ala like the Prophet (Peace and blessing upon him) loved him, this why he is imam of all people

Owais Qurani said to Ali and Umar (May Allah be pleased with them), “You didn’t know anything about him except his shadow.” They said you are right

The reason that people go into isolation is so they can focus their worship

These affairs have proper foundations and principles

The human soul has a number of wonders, even a non Muslim who fasts and goes into isolation may see the wonders of the soul

It doesn’t mean anything if you can fly or walk on water, this is an illusion and you should not seek this. Our focus should be Allah

A true sign is abstinence and they will pass thru these states quickly

You can attain a high station by being sincere

A hindu challenged a Muslim scholar to contest, to see who could fly the most, the Muslim scholar hit him with a shoe and the man died

He should think about the wondrous meanings of the Quran
