In the dream I heard that Shaykh Hisham (q) saying that the Prophet (Sm) is in you, Sura Hadid or Hud (can’t remember) I then go to google and search- sura hud or hadid Shaykh Kabbani. Kindly excuse my lack of adab please.
wa ‘alaykum salam,
Yes you may google that reference, and that is a true dream.
Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani said in a sohbat dated 2 January, 2015:
It is said in the Holy Qur’an:
وإعلموا أن فيكم رسول الله
And know [O human beings!], Allah’s Messenger is in you. (Surat al-Hujuraat, 49:7)
Allah did not say ‘among’ you, if he meant that He would have said ‘baynakum.’ ‘Feekum’ and ‘baynakum’ are farqun kabeer. Qaala Allahu t`ala fi’l-qur’an, “w `alamoo anna feekum rasoolullah.” That means the Reality, the light of the masjid is not what you see from the outside, the reality is the masjid itself. Allah has made you a masjid, maa wasi`anee ardee wa laa samaa’ee wa laakin wasi`anee qalbi `abdee al-mu’min, “Neither My Heavens nor My Earth contain Me, but the heart of My believing servant contains Me.” That means it contains His Light, that Allah’s Light comes in the hearts of people.
That is why Allah (swt) said:
قَدْ أَفْلَحَ مَن زَكَّاهَا
Whoever purifies the soul will succeed. (Surat al-Shams, 91:9)
It is because that one will see the Reality of Sayyidina Muhammad (s) within him, as the Holy Qur’an says Sayyidina Muhammad (s) is in you, his Light and his Mercy is in you. But some people only want to look at the pictures and statues. We are like a statue with a form, with three dimensions. They look at the statue, but they don’t look at the hearts of Ahl as-Sunnah wa ‘l-Jama`ah, which are full of love of the Prophet (s), who said:
يحشر المرء مع من أحب
Each person will be resurrected with the one he loves. (Tirmidhi)
If we love the picture, then go until the picture will speak with you; but, the picture will never speak with anyone, only the reality of Sayyidina Muhammad (s) is in the hearts of the believer. When we go to make ziyara of the Prophet (s) in Masjid an-Nabawi (s), where do we go first? We try to go to the Rawdah first, which the Prophet (s) described as:
ما بين قبري و منبري روضة من رياض الجنة
Between my grave and my pulpit is a garden from the Gardens of Paradise. (Bukhari and Muslim)
They pray in the Rawdah, as they know that place has a special reality for Heavens and for Muslims, so all of us try to pray in the Rawdah. If we are lucky we pray inside and if not, we pray outside, but you will be crying. So when you come to the presence of the Prophet (s), you want to enter into that Reality, you don’t want the outside. The Prophet (s) showed the Sahaabah (r) his Reality, he did not show them the image only.
