The Appearance of Imam Mahdi (as) and the Spiritual Journey of Sultan ul-Awliya / Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Adil Al-Haqqani Sultanul Awliya - Sohba/Discourse
The Appearance of Sayyidina Imam Mahdi (a) on `Arafah 1432
Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani
5 November 2011 Lefke, Cyprus
(Mawlana Shaykh narrates his spiritual experience of Friday, 4 November 2011 to Shaykh Mehmet and Hajjah Ruqiya.)
I didn't even know if I was alive or not; it was a hal (spiritual state) and they wanted to take us there (to `Arafah). After the Waqfa was completed there, I saw my hal was opened! During that time (Friday after Fajr up to 11:00 a.m. Lefke time) I slept very comfortably. The night before I was very pressurized; they pressurized me.
Here they brought me a doctor, but there was no need, only annoyance! The doctor came and left, but I didn’t even realize it; when he came, what he did, I did not realize it at all. Why did this doctor come, for what reason? Then I fell asleep. I prayed Fajr prayer. (...)
After that, I renewed wudu and went to bed at 6:30 a.m. A spiritual state (hal) came upon me. They took me and I didn’t even realize it as I was half awake. I woke up well about 11:00 a.m.; I woke up comfortably, thanks to Allah (swt). It was the exact time of Waqfa there (11:00 a.m. Lefke time). They told me that we have 2.5 hours difference with Hijaz and Waqfa service is at noon. They must have taken me, for sure, then when I returned it was 11:00 a.m. (in Lefke).
Such an astonishing hal has happened this year! Therefore, I have understood that the Sahib (Mahdi) (a) has declared his appearance/zhuhoor there, but his appearance has not opened yet to the public. He (a) took over the power now, it is in his hands.
The actions will start on Muharram. Allah knows; the actions will start, to clean, to arrange. We seek refuge in Allah from the events that will happen. May Allah make ummati Muhammad (s) to reach safety and security, and send on them Sahib al-Waqt, the Master.
The common people could not tolerate the tajalli of yesterday; no one could tolerate it! A strong tajalli took place and there was not a single man from the common people there. Mahdi (a) will appear in Arafah but not among the common people, because his jazbah (attraction) is strong and all of them will lose their minds; they will go mad! Therefore, the spiritual masters carried the strongtajalli of that day (yesterday), and the next day (today) the people can recite, “Labbayk Allahuma, Labbayk!” They recite, and let them recite, and may Allah accept it from us as well, as from the common people.
He (Shaykh Mehmet) was called there, too. Kiss the hand of Shaykh Mehmet Effendi.
May Allah accept the hajjis who perform Hajj today and also forgive us. Amaan yaa Rabbee.
