Habib Umar trans Sidi Yahya Rhodus 01-08

Dowra notes seven

Awarif Al-Ma’arif

People who experience spiritual states shouldn’t mention them

Umar (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with him) would reflect, so deeply on the Quran and he would faint and pass out for days

All praise be to Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala

All dhkir has ranks

The state of the heart with Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala

Everything they do affects their hearts and they are concerned with the eyes and the hearts

So he doesn’t listen to the appropriate

The eyes and the ears are part of mans responsibility on himself

He guards these, by being careful to what enters these organs

Those are the people who are guarded and the people of the inner most core

By having this core this will need to follow and this is blessing from Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala

Imam Sharwardi (May Allah's Ta'ala mercy be with him) will mention different states of listening

Good works like reading the Quran, hadith and stories of the righteous it guides to good and guidance

This will busy their person with the good and remove them from bad

But if it is a bad music then it will lead to bad

Some of the companions used to recite poetry in order to make the camels go faster, the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) used to tell the companion to be easy because the camels would love his voice and go very fast

May righteous people used poetry to explain a meaning

If they use it to bad purposes then this can lead to sin

The general meaning of the word Sam’a it means listening

How many of us have had this happen to us?

One of the companions of Ibn Masud (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with him)was in the market and he heard the Quran and he passed out for a day

There are good things in poetry and bad things

The Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) said poetry has wisdom in it

You can't always say its permissible or haram

Poetry can help people be reminded

Some peoples hearts become pure and that wont depend on what they listen to

Aisha (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with her) used to have a servant who used to sing to her and the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) came in and sat down. When Umar (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with him) came in, the servant fled, the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) laughed and Umar (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with him) wanted he hear what the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) was listening. Umar (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with him) refused to leave until he heard what the Prophet heard

Dawud (Upon him peace) used to recite beautifully that people used to expire and water used to stop, people used to gather to hear him sing
