33:56 “Lo! Allah and His angels pray upon the prophet. Oh yea who believe, pray on him and salute him with peace.”
“Al-Qadi ‘Iyad cited from ‘Amr ibn Dinar al-Athram (d. 126) the explanation of the verse 24:61 “when you enter houses salute one another”: “If there is no-one in the house then say: ‘as-salâmu ‘alâ al-Nabiyyi wa rahmatullâhi wa barakâtuh.’ Al-Qari said in his commentary on al-Shifa’: “Meaning, because his (the Holy Prophet’s) soul, sall-Allahu `alayhi wa sallam, is present in the house of the Muslims (ay li’anna rûhahu ‘alayhi al-salâmu hâdirun fî buyûti al-muslimîn).” [Al-Qadi ‘Iyad in al-Shifa: “Concerning the places where it is desirable to invoke blessings and peace upon him”]
“What are we? We are the Nation of the Messenger of Greatness ﷺ who is endowed with the Secret of the Universe. If He ﷺ says Be! Then it will come to be. If he says Be! It comes to be, from the Power of our Prophet ﷺ. This we can say” – as-Sayyid al-Sharif Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Adil al-Haqqani qadasAllahu sirrahul ‘aziz, 22nd March, 2013
“It is without a doubt that the Almighty has given His Noble Beloved (Allah bless him and grant him peace) the complete knowledge of everything from the first till the last. From the east to the west, from the Throne till the earth, everything was shown to him. He was made witness to the Kingdom of the heavens and the earth. From the very first day till the last day all of the knowledge of what was and what shall be (ma kana wa ma yakun) has been shown to him. From all of the above, not even an iota is outside the knowledge of the Prophet. Great knowledge has been encompassed by the Noble Beloved (Allah bless him and grant him peace). It is not just of a summary type but what is small and big, every leaf that falls and every grain in the darkness of the earth are in their entirety known to him individually and in detail. Much praise to Allah. In fact, that which has been discussed is not, never, the complete knowledge of the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and grant him peace and send peace on his family and companions, all of them); but this is a small part of the Prophet’s knowledge …” [Ahmad Rida Khan, Anba al-Mustafa, p.486]
“Our Master, the Prophet (may Allah bless him and give him peace), is the absolute representative, deputy of Allah Most High. Hence, he has been given control (tassaruf) over the entire universe. He may do as he desires, give to whomsoever he wishes, take from anyone whatever he desires. None in the universe can deny his rulings. The entire universe is under his governance and he is under the authority of none except Allah. He is the owner (malik) of all humans. Anyone who does not accept him to be his owner (malik) remains devoid of the sweetness of the Sunnah. All the earth is his property. Paradise is his estate. The angels of earth and the sky are under his authority. The keys to paradise and hell have been given to him in his noble hand. Sustenance, goodness and other types of blessings are distributed from his noble office. This world and the hereafter is a portion of his blessings. The rulings of Shari‘ah have been delegated to his authority. He may make impermissible (haram) for anyone whatever he decides. Similarly, he may make permissible (halal) whatever he wishes and exempt whatever obligation (fard) he desires.” [Amjad ‘Ali A’zimi, the deputy (khalifah) of Ahmad Rida Khan Barelwi, Bahar-i-Shari‘ah (p.1: 30-31)]
“…The inner reality (haqiqah) of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) was not human (bashari), rather his haqiqah was nuri …It becomes evident from the hadiths that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) possessed a superior nur to even that of the moon. This superior nur split the inferior nur of the moon [Shaq al-Qamar (splitting of the moon)]…This power of the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) is contradictory [at odds] to haqiqah bashariyyah and thus proves that the inner haqiqah of the Messenger was not bashari but it was pure nur…Allah Most High described in this verse the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) as pure nur, which proves that he is in his inward reality a nur and only has manifest human attributes.” [Miqyas Nur p. 24,73,90]
“Our Master is the blessed one who carries the Manifestation of the Owner of the Throne. He carries the beauty of the Owner of the Throne. That is why he became ‘Mustafa’. Mustafa. “…’Ala Al-‘Arshi Astawa” (20:5) Which throne? Which one is the throne? He rose above it (the throne). No one knows what it is.”-al-Sayyid al-Sharif Mawlana GrandShaykh Nazim Adil al-Haqqani, Feb 2nd, 2014
Hilye-i Şerîf: The Physical Description of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ
Hadrat ‘Ali’s narration states: “In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate”
Upper text circular area is surrounded by four small disks containing variations on the names of the Rashidun Caliphs:
i.e. Abu Bakr (upper left), Umar (upper left), Uthman (lower right), and ‘Ali (lower left).
Each disk contains in small letters the blessing, “May Allah bless him and grant him peace.”
The upper Text states:“From Hadrat ‘Ali (r.a.) when he used to describe the Noble Prophet (Salla Allahu ta’ala ‘alayhi wa Sallam) he said: “He was not excessively tall nor overly short, but was of medium stature among the people. His hair was neither short nor curly nor long and thin. He was a strong man, but not stout or fat. His face was entirely white and round, and he had intensely black eyes and long eyelashes. He was big in the shoulders and back. He was not hairy except on his forward as though he were walking downhill, and when he turned his whole body turned. Between his shoulder blades was the seal of prophecy, for he is the Seal of the Prophets”.
The middle section states: “Truly, you are great in character” (Holy Qur’an 68:4)
The lower text translation (continuing from above ) states: “He was the most generous of men in his heart, the most truthful of them in speech, the mildest of them in temper, and the noblest of them in anyone who saw him, immediately felt in awe, and anyone who partook of his knowledge loved him. The one who described him says he has never seen anyone like him, either before or after him. May God bless him and grant him peace.”
“Allahu Ta’ala bless and grant peace to Muhammad, Your servant, Your Prophet and Your Messenger, the Ummi Prophet, and to his family and companions, and grant them peace.”
Greatness of the Holy Prophet Muhammad al-Mustafa ﷺ
“The Prophet ﷺ once asked Gabriel, “O Gabriel! How old are you?”Gabriel replied,“O Messenger of Allah ﷺ, I don’t know how old I am, but I do know that in the Fourth Covering, I saw a Star shine once every 70,000 years, and I saw this 72,000 times.” The Prophet ﷺ then said, “By the honor of Allah! I Am that Star” (i.e. Gabriel is 5,040,000,000 years old).” [Tafsir Ruh al-Bayan, Vol. 1, Page 974]
“First of all things, the Lord created my Mind” (Muhammad: The Last Prophet Compiled by Hajjah Amina Adil, Wife of Shaykh Nazim, p.38. Translated by Radhia Shukrullah)
“(If they ask): Who built those Pyramids?
(If they ask): Who built Rome?
(If they ask): Who built that White House?
(When they ask): Who built this world?
Say, a Slave.”
–Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin
“Every Prophet came to praise Sayyidina Muhammad al-Mustafa ﷺ and connect their tribes to Him and His lofty Name. Even Sayyidina Muhammad al-Mustafa ﷺ Himself was sent to praise Himself, and His praise is what belief in Allah consists of. After the era of the Seal of Prophets ﷺ the era of Wiliyah began. Every Wali came to praise ‘Ali b. Abi Talib, and connect people to him. Why ‘Ali? Because the Seal of Prophets ﷺ declared “Ali and I are from One Light.” There is no other task for the Awliya period. Anyone who is dressed with the dress of Wiliyah can confirm this. That is all their mission is, nothing else but to praise ‘Ali. The one who recognized himself recognized his Lord. To recognize oneself is to come out of self-ignorance into self-knowledge. All knowledge is recorded, written with the Qalm, on the Lawh al-Mahfudh, The Preserved Tablet. The Lawh contains knowledge of all permutations of all reactions to all things that happened, and will happen, and all moments in time and all beings in space and in creation, in short, everything is recorded on it; it is the mirror of Divine Knowledge, but not all knowledge of the Divine in Itself, since there is no possible description or comprehension of all Divine Knowledge in Itself. The Lawh is the book of the recorded permutations of all choices and reactions and thereby destiny. It is the Program of the Universe. An example of the Preserved Tablet in man is memory. Dhikr is remembrance, or the extraction of knowledge from memory. Memory contains the events that we experience, the places that we see, people that we know, all ideas, thoughts, feelings, actions, reactions, voices that we hear, tastes that we taste, all impressions that we receive all our life long, all knowledge that we learn, and yet its capacity for storage is never full. There are three letters in the word Ilm, knowledge. ‘Ayn, Laam, Meem. The Seal of Prophets ﷺ declared He was the City of Knowledge and ‘Ali b. Abi Talib its only Gate. The ‘Ayn in Ilm stands for ‘Ali, who is its Gate. The Meem is its end, its final limit, and it is Muhammad al-Mustafa ﷺ. The Laam between the ‘Ayn and Meem is the Lawh al-Mahfudh; the Preserved Tablet of all recorded knowledge.” – Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin
“The Prophet, sall-Allahu `alayhi wa sallam, possesses knowledge of all that is and knows the created universes in the same way that one knows a room in which one sits. Nothing is hidden from him. There are two verses of the Holy Qur’an that affirm this, [But how (will it be with them) when we bring of every people a witness, and We bring you (O Muhammad) a witness against these] (4:41) and [Thus We have appointed you a middle nation, that you may be witnesses against mankind and that the messenger may be a witness against you] (2:143) nor can the Prophet, sall-Allahu `alayhi wa sallam, be called to witness over what he does not know nor see.” –Dr. GF Haddad
“Finally, in the metaphysic of the Sufis, or at least those whom I have met, the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) is both the ‘Light of Allah’ and ‘a human being’, and the inability to join between the two aspects is a lack of understanding of the greatness of al-Haqiqa al-Muhammadiyya, the ‘Muhammadan Reality’.” – Shaykh Nuh Keller

The Muhammadanﷺ Reality: Nine Levels of Muhammadﷺ by H.E. Qutb Muhammad Raheem Bawa Muhaiyaddeen Qadiri
The Unmanifested Muhammad: The name Allah gives to the Nur. The Unmanifested is the beginningless beginning, the time of profound silence, when nothing had been manifested and Allah existed as Himself, with the Nur, as yet unmanifested, within Him.
The Manifested Muhammad: The primal beginning, when the essence [dhat] of Allah emerged from Him. When His essence attained His beauty and came forth from Him, Allah caused it to appear as a light. The light He caused to appear was as His own Praise [Muham], and He gave it the name Muhammad. This is the Manifested Muhammad.
Awwal Muhammad: The Beginning. Awwal is the beginning, the emergence of creation. At this time Allah gave to the light of the Nur the name Awwal Muhammad.
Hayat Muhammad: The Eternal. The ruh [soul, or life] which exists forever; the truth which never dies.
Anna Muhammad: The Nourishment. Anna Muhammad comes as food and nourishment to each life. It is the beauty that is Allah’s grace, the nourishment of His grace. For hayat, or eternal life, Anna Muhammad comes to the heart and the face as the nourishment which is Allah’s beauty. The sole nourishment for the soul of man, or hayat, is the beauty of Allah, which comes from His light in the form of atoms of His grace. Anna Muhammad comes as the nourishment related to earth, fire, water, air, and ether.
Qalb Muhammad: The Heart. The light of the beauty of Allah’s essence [dhat], which is the inner heart, called Qalb.
Nur Muhammad: The Plenitude. The light which became complete within Allah and then emerged from within Him. The beauty and the light of Allah’s three thousand gracious qualities; the light of His benevolent qualities of patience; the radiance of Allah’s essence, of dhat, which shines within the resplendence of His truth. It was the light of Muhammad called Nur Muhammad that was impressed upon the forehead of Adam [alaihi salam]. Of the nine aspects of Muhammad, Nur Muhammad is the aspect of wisdom.
Allah Muhammad: The light of Allah within Muhammad and the light of Muhammad within Allah. The name that Allah gives to Muhammad when the limitless resplendent Nur once again sees the Perfection, Allah, from which it originally emerged. Having come forth from that Perfection, and manifested all of creation, that light once again lost itself in that orginal source. What is called Muhammad is a vessel through which Allah can be recognized and from within which He speaks. Of the nine aspects of Muhammad, Allah Muhammad is the hightest.
Muhammad: Muhammad is completly merged in Allah, existing only as a vehicle for the manifestation of His essence and attributes. Only the pretext of Muhammad’s [sallallahu alaihi wa sallam] form is there, because Allah is formless, the form of Muhammad [sallallahu alaihi wa sallam] appears to exist so that the perfect beauty and grace of the Invisible and Indescribable can be recognized.
