I live in the U.S. and I recently took bayath with Shaykh Nazim online, after researching a great deal about the Naqshbandi way. Last week, I had a dream in which I saw Shaykh Hisham very clearly. I was in a car with some people I have never seen in my life, and while the car was stopped, I saw this small house and outside it looked like a bazaar. I saw Japanese writing on it (I study Japanese in college) and ran to it, examining the beautiful decorations. Then I look around at the door of the house and I see Sh. Hisham coming out gracefully to me with a warm smile and open arms. His face shining with nur. He looked so REAL! I felt extreme joy when I saw him. I walked to him with my head down and he put his hand on my head. Then we went into his house and he sat across from me. This part I can’t remember much. He was asking me to count or add two numbers together and he asked me what the answer was. It was either just a number or a year. I think one of the numbers was 914 or 1914. After that, I immediately woke up. What is the meaning?
Seeing Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani in the dream means your baya` with Mawlana Shaykh Nazim is accepted and confirmed by his deputy as Shaykh Hisham has been granted full power to represent Mawlana Shaykh Nazim in every aspect of spiritual guidance for Shaykh Nazim’s murids. And this means your door to Mawlana Shaykh Nazim is Shaykh Hisham, so spend as much time with him, physically or spiritually as possible and acquire his characteristics, if you cannot be with Mawlana Shaykh Nazim.
914 refers to Surah at-Tawba:14: “Fight against them! God will chastise them by your hands, and will bring disgrace upon them, and will succour you against them; and He will soothe the bosoms of those who believe”
and the meaning for you is: fight your ego and punish it and disgrace it, by keeping firm in the five prayers, in which case you will be supported by Allah’s servants to defeat it and Allah will make you into a true believer.
and 91:4 Surat ash-Shams, 4: “and the night as it veils it darkly!”
This means for you, get up in dark watches of the night and pray, in order to achieve a high station as a worshipper.
1914 refers to Surah Maryam:14 “and full of piety towards his parents; and never was he haughty or rebellious.”
and the meaning is apparent.
