Bahrul qudra

Question:

Assalamualaikum sayyadi

I was listening to shaykh said Allah put the light of Rasool Allah saw in bahrul qudra in which He (saw) is turning. My question is by the turning the creation is coming in existence? 2nd question what is bahrul qudra?

Answer:

Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani, in a suhbat on 9 July, 2016 said:

What Allah (swt) opened for his Prophet (s), no eye was able to see and no ear was able to hear; it is not possible to imagine. Awliya couldn’t know what Allah (swt) opened for Prophet (s), it’s like a drop in an ocean and from that knowledge he summarized the whole religion in two phrases. He said after Allah created his Light, He put him in Bahr al-Qudra, the Ocean of Power, the Ocean of Knowledge of the Ninety-nine Names and Attributes no one knows, the Names that encompass all the Attributes and Names, and Allah has an infinite number of Names that He will open to the Ummah on the Day of Judgement.

The only one who is shy from Allah is Prophet (s), the rest are not shy; we are not, if we were we would not commit sins. Prophet (s) was shy. Allah opened more to him and from His Light that was turning and turning in the Ocean of Bahr al-Qudra, as an airplane turbine turns and increases and the plane takes off, the Prophet (s) increases in knowledge. He started to know the Reality of our Creation: what Allah created first was the Light of Prophet (s). So from that `Ilm Allah created the `Arsh, the Kursi, and everything in Creation.
