muraqaba (مراقبة)


Shaykh Hisham always reminds us to do muraqaba but I don’t know how to. I’ve tried it once I put a YouTube clip that guides u on how to do Muraqaba step by step.

So one evening I tried to do it in my bedroom I was laying down in my bed I followed the instructions my children were down stairs. Slowly I lost my breath I had no need to breath and then slowly I found myself in a very dark dark place it was so beautiful and shinny there was like little purple gem sooo shinny.

I knew it was somewhere in space. It was a peaceful place still no movement no nothing. This black space was full of noor. I don’t know how to describe it. It wasn’t like the noor from the sun or the moon it was different noor I just can’t describe it. It was black noor and purple shiny little gems around. I forgot about everything even my children after some time I heard my children I was there but I could hear my children.

Then I was in my room I could see me but I had no strength to make any movement. It was a very unusual experience. Then I started To think that maybe I’m dead because I wasn’t breathing at all. I was just in these thoughts then my husband came from work and he nudged me that’s when I got my breath back and the ability to function again. This was my first and last muraqaba I loved what I experienced but I also got a little scared because I couldn’t get myself back.

Could u please elaborate on what that was and guide me on how to do Muraqaba in shaa Allah.

JazakAllah khair


Wa alaikum salaam,

These are different dimensions of yourself being being shown to you: physical and spiritual. There are layers and depth to who humans are and this was shown to you.  Alhamdulillah you were protected and able to come back to your family as Shuyukh are authorized to guide us in all aspects of meditation, awareness and experiential knowledge.  Sometimes we need to see bigger deeper dimensions, sometimes subtle veils and how the Prophetic Nur helps us overcome obstacles from being nearer to Allah, His Messenger and AwliyaAllah.

Wa Allahu Alam,

Kamau Ayubbi
