APPLICATION OF 'SCIENCE OF NUMBER' TO PRAYERS

  1. 1. QUR’AANIC AND PROPHETIC SUPPLICATIONSTHE BELIEVER’S SWORD {SAEF AL-MUHMIN} - “PRAYER {AD-DU‘AA}”: 2010 By: ISMA‘EEL BAKARE APPLICATION OF ‘SCIENCE OF NUMBERS’ TO {Ilm- The Science of numbers {Ilm-l-Hisaab} is one of the rarely discussed aspects of Islam and one of the most vital.

  2. 2. *PRAYER ARTICLE 1* THE MOST SUPERIOR STATEMENTS ( ): {THE NUMERICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF REMEMBERING ALLAH AND THANKING HIM} Compiled By: ISMAHEEL BAKARE We seek refuge with Almighty Allah, from the Accursed Satan. In the name of Allah, the Most-Compassionate, the Most Merciful. -O Allah! send Benediction upon the Source of Divine Mercy, Muhammad {PBUH}. -The Qur’an mentions the two best statements succinctly in the verse below: “Therefore Remember me, I will remember you. Give Thanks to Me and reject Me not”. {Qur’an 2:152} -Allah also admonishes us to be thankful, so that He will increase His goodness to us. -He also states that: By remembering Him {i.e. Allah}, one finds rest of mind/soul tranquility. WHAT THE PROPHET SAID ABOUT THE MOST SUPERIOR STATEMENTSNarrated by Jabir {RTA}: the Prophet {PBUH} said, “The Most Superior way of RememberingAllah is by {the repetition} of Laa-ilaaha-illaa-llahu (there is no other god, except Allah) and the Most Superior Du‘aa (Prayer) is Alhamdu-lillah (all praise and thanks are Allah’s) ”. [Mishkat & Tirmidh] -Hence, this hadith and the Qur‘an verse quoted above shows that the best statements are: Laa-ilaaha-illaa-llahu and Alhamdu-lillah. -One of the Sahabas, Abdullahi ibn Abass (RTA) {who was one of the most knowledgeable in Qur’aan Exegesis} opined that whoever recites Laa-ilaaha-illaa-llahu should follow it with Alhamdu-lillah because it follows that sequence in {Qur’an 40:65}: “He (Allah) is the Ever Living, there is no other god, but He {Laa-ilaaha-illa-Huwa}; so invoke Him making your worship pure for Him Alone. All praise and thanks are Allah’s, the Lord of the worlds {Alhamdu-lillahi, Rabil-aalameen}”. -In the attempt to apply Abdullahi ibn Abass’ opinion, one can join both statements together, as shown below: Small form: {LAA-ILAAHA-ILLAA-LLAHU*ALHAMDU-LILLAH}Big form: {LAA-ILAAHA-ILLAA-LLAHU, MUHAMMAD-RASUULU-LLAH* ALHAMDU-LILLAHI-RABIL-AALAMEEN} 2
  3. 3. THE NUMERICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF RECITING/REPEATING THE BEST STATEMENTS/UTTERANCES 1. Small form: {LAA-ILAAHA-ILLAA-LLAHU*ALHAMDU-LILLAH} * -The additional numerical value of these two conglomerated statements shows that they are really the best statements and also a miracle of synchronism with other illustrious Verses of the Qur’an, Group of people and Events. NUMERICAL VALUE OF THE BEST STATEMENTS/UTTERANCES {Small form} LAA-ILAAHA-ILLAA-LLAHU = 165, while; ALHAMDU-LILLAH = 148, and 165+148 = 313 VIRTUES OF THE NUMBER ‘313’ a. ALLAH’S MESSENGERS The total number of Allah’s Prophets {Anbiyaa} that were Messengers {Mursaleen} are “313”. b. ASIHAABU-L-BADR The total number of the Prophet’s Companions that participated in the Victorious & Epoch-making Battle of Badr {Asihaabu-l-Badr} was “313”. This can also be evidenced by the fact that the numerical value ofARMY {JAESH} is 313. Hence, 313 is denoted or coded by the Ahlu-l-Hisaab {Numerologists} as Adad al-jaesh {Number of Army/Victory}. 3
  4. 4. c. WITR 313 is an odd number and also a prime number {witr}. The Prophet {PBUH} said: “Allah{SWT} is witr (One), and He loves witr (odd).” And this is the reason why it’s good to choose odd numbers to pray with. d. SYNCHRONISM WITH THE VERSES OF THE QUR’AN The number of Alphabets in the last two verses of suratul Baqara (Aamanar-Rasuul) {Qur’an 2:285-286} are 313. Abdullah ibn Abass (RTA) narrates that, [Once Prophet {PBUH} was sitting among us and he said , “In Heaven, there has been opened today a door which was never opened before, and out of it has descended an angel who has never descended before. The angel said to me {Prophet}, “Receive good news of two lights ‘Anwaar’ which have not been bestowed upon anyone else before. One is ‘suratul Faatiha {Opening Chapter}’ and the other is the concluding portion of ‘suratul Baqarah {i.e. Qur’an 2:285-286 (Aamanar- Rasuul)}’.”] These two surahs have been called Light ‘Nur’, because on the Judgement day these will travel in front of their reciters (illuminating their path). The Prophet {PBUH} also advised that Muslims should endeavor to recite these two verses, especially before going to sleep, for that will be sufficient for them. -I know certainly that there’ll be other virtues of 313 that’ll be known to Islamic scholars {Raasikhuuna fii-l-ilm}. *So, Laa-ilaaha-illa-llah*Alhamdu-lillah can be recited 313 times {it’s numerical value}, andAamanar-Rasuul can be recited as its Khutba {Speech}, due to the fact that the Numerical value of the Most superior utterances/statements and the total alphabets {huruuf} in Aamanar- Rasuul synchronises as 313 {The Number of Victory}. -I also wish to state that it’s very good to start and end any du‘aa with sending salaat {Prayer} upon the noble Prophet Muhammad {PBUH}. That pleases Allah so much! -There are so many scientific miracles in the Qur’aan which are yet to be discovered and the Numerical miracles is just an aspect of the others.-I believe that with more in-depth research, we {muslims} can discover more of these facts which will serve as a Comfort/Apple of the eye for the Ummah {Muhammadic Nation}. -May Allah accept our good deeds, supplications and our jihad {strivings}, AAMEEN. 4
  5. 5. 2. Big form: {LAA-ILAAHA-ILLAA-LLAHU, MUHAMMAD-RASUULU-LLAH* ALHAMDU-LILLAHI-RABIL-AALAMEEN} * -The big form of the best statements is naturally a bigger miracle and I think the utterance of the big form will fetch the reciter more thawaab {reward}.-A striking fact about the big form is that the total alphabets {huruuf} there in are 41, even as a layman in the field of Islam and Numerology, I know that 41 is a blessed number. -The sahaba I have been mentioning from the beginning of this write-up {Abdullah ibn Abass (RTA) ‘the Qur’an Exegete’} says, “Once Jibreel {Angel Gabriel} came to the Prophet (PBUH), when he {Prophet} was very muchworried, and said ‘Almighty Allah has sent His Salaam {Greetings} to you and hasenquired why you look so sad and worried!’”. Although, Allah knows whatever is hidden in the hearts, yet by such enquiries, Allah means to indicate honour, respect and favours. The Prophet {PBUH} replied, “O Gabriel (AS)! I am worried about my Ummah{Nation/Community}, as to how they will fare on Judgment day! ”. Jibreel asked, ‘Is it about the non-believers or the Muslims? He {Prophet} replied, ‘About the Muslims’.Jibreel (AS) then took the Prophet {PBUH} along to a graveyard where the peopleof Banu Salamah were buried; there he {Jibreel} struck a grave with his wing andsaid ‘Qum! Bi idhni-llahi (Stand up! By the orders of Allah)’. Out of that grave, an extremely handsome man stood up, and he was reciting:-LAA-ILAAHA-ILLAA-LLAHU, MUHAMMAD-RASUULU-LLAH *ALHAMDU-LILLAHI-RABIL-AALAMEEN- * 5
  6. 6. Jibreel (AS) told him to go back to his place, which he did.Then he struck another grave with his wing. Out of it stood up an extremely uglyperson with black face and worried eyes, who was saying, “Alas, there is nothing but sorrow, shame and horror!” Jibreel (AS) told him to return to his place, andthen explained to the Prophet {PBUH} that, “The people will rise up on Judgment day in the same state that they were at the time of their death.”” -This indicates that, those who their tongues remain busy with the Remembranceof Allah and Thanking Allah will continue to recite that in their graves till they meet their Lord in Paradise {Jannah}.-May Allah grant us the ability to busy our tongues with the Remembrance of Allahand to remain thankful to him at all times {whether in difficulty or at ease}, ameen. NUMERICAL VALUE OF THE BEST STATEMENTS/UTTERANCES {Long form} LAA-ILAAHA-ILLAA-LLAHU, MUHAMMAD-RASUULU-LLAH=619, while; ALHAMDU-LILLAHI-RABIL-AALAMEEN=581, and 619+581=1200 SYNCHRONISM WITH THE VERSES OF THE QUR’AN-Some verses of the Qur’an that contains the string of words or phrases in the best statements {i.e. Laa-ilaaha-illaa-llahu, Muhammad Rasuulu-llah, Alhamdu-lillahiand Alhamdu-lillahi-Rabil-aalameen} have their total alphabets to be 1200, which synchronises with the numerical value of the big form of the best statements. *So, one can recite the verses below as the Khutba of the big form of the best statements after the recitation of the big form 1200 times. 6

  9. 9. **PRAYER ARTICLE 2** NUMERICAL EXPRESSION OF “THE LIGHT UPON LIGHT PRAYER” " " {“AD-DU‘AAHU NUURUN ALAA NUURIN” FII-S-SUURATI-L-‘ADADIYYAH} ABUU- {AL- Compiled By: AL’HAAJ {MUQADAM} ISMA‘EEL ABUU-BAKR {AL-IKIRUUNWII} INTRODUCTION We seek refuge with Almighty Allah, from the Accursed Satan. In the name of Allah, the Most-Compassionate, the Most Merciful.-O Allah! send Benediction and Salute upon Your Bright Light with which You filled Your ambience, in all the places of encompassing existence, Muhammad {May the Peace & Mercy of Allah be Upon Him}. AAMEEN…..*An-Nuur {The Light} is one of the 99 Beautiful names of Allah and is a multi-faceted phenomenon that can be further learnt in details from Adepts and Mystics. Indeed, GOD guides to His light whomsoever He wills. -This write-up applies the numerical value of Nuurun-alaa-Nuurin [Light upon Light (622)] with other names of Allah,Prophetic prayer of Light {which I refer as: “THE LIGHT UPON LIGHT PRAYER (AD-DUHAAU NUURUN ALAA NUURIN)”}, Verses of the Qur’aan that all synchronize with the Numerical Value of Nuurun-alaa-Nuurin [Light upon Light(622)].-The reason why I chose Light-upon-Light as a beacon in this article is because the Verse of the Parable of Allah’s Light i.e. “Suratu-n-Nuur {Q24:35}” and the Prophetic supplication of Light both has the phrase “NUURUN-ALAA-NUURIN (LIGHT UPON LIGHT)” in common. FORMULA THAT SHOWS THE SYNCHRONISM OF THE NUMERICAL VALUES OF LIGHT UPON LIGHT, ALLAH’S GREATEST NAMES, VERSES OF THE QUR’AN AND THE MOST SUPERIOR UTTERANCES 1. NUURUN ALAA NUURIN=622 2. ALLAH+RAHMAAN+RAHEEM; 66+298+258=622 3a. PROPHETIC LIGHT UPON LIGHT PRAYER=327 Alphabets 3b. THE VERSE OF THE PARABLE OF ALLAH’S LIGHT=199 Alphabets 3c. THE BIG FORM OF THE MOST SUPERIOR STATEMANTS=41 Alphabets 3d. THREE LAST VERSES OF SURATU-S-SAFFAT=55 Alphabets 3a+3b+3c+3d=327+199+41+55=622 Alphabets in no. 3 ANOTHER ASTOUNDING FACT ABOUT THE NUMBER (622) The Numerical Value of the prophet’s wife’s name {Khadeejah} is 622. This shows that she’s an embodiment ofLight. Indeed, she gave birth to the Leader of women in paradise and the first amongst the four best women that ever-lived . They {four best women that ever-lived} are: {(1) Fatima (Prophet’s daughter), (2) Khadeejah (Fatima’s mother & the first wife of the Prophet), (3) Asiyah(Pharaoh’s wife), (4)Maryam(Jesus’ mother)}. 9
  10. 10. THE NUMEROLOGICAL PRESCRIPTION OF THE INVOCATION -In this kind of scenario, the Number and Letter Adepts will prescribe to the seeker that:*ALLAH, RAHMAN, RAHEEM be recited 622 times & *NUURUN-ALAA-NUURIN be recited 622 times. *The Quadruple Recitation {3a,b,c,d} serves as the khutba, because they add up to 622. {to be recited once} KHUTBA {622 ALPHABETS IN ALL} 3a.

  11. 11. 3b.

Yahadii-llahu li nuurihi man yashaa’u. Wa yadribu-llahu-l-Amsaala li-n-Naasi, Wa-llahu bikulli shae’hin aleemun. (Suratu-n-Nuur {Q24:35}) TRANSLATION “-God is the Light of the Heavens and the Earth, The PARABLE of His light is like a wall niche, in which there is a lamp: The lamp is in a glass (or globe). The glass is like a shining sphere/globe radiating from a blessed tree, a date-palm with neither of the (rising point) east nor (setting) west. Its oil oft give radiance, such that even if GOD does not touch fire to it, LIGHT-UPON-LIGHT! GOD guides to His light whomsoever He wills. And God narrates parables for men, for GOD knows all things.” 3c.

  12. 12. ***PRAYER ARTICLE 3*** “THE DEAREST WORDS BEFORE ALLAH” & “THE GOOD DEEDS WHICH ENDURES”: {A NUMERICAL PERSPECTIVE OF THE FIVE STATEMENTS THAT TESTIFIES ALLAH’S ONENESS} By: ISMAHEEL BAKARE We seek refuge with Almighty Allah, from the Accursed Satan. In the name of Allah, the Most-Compassionate, the Most Merciful. -O Allah! send Benediction and Salute upon the Advent of the Truth by the Truth, the Greatest Treasure and the Mysterious Light, Muhammad {PBUH} and upon all other Prophets and Saints {May Allah’s Peace, Mercy and Blessing Be Upon Them all}, ameen. -The Prophet {PBUH} said: “The Dearest Words before Allah are four: Subhaan-Allah, Alhamdu-lillah, Laa-ilaaha-illaa-llah, Allahu-Akbar. {Saheeh Muslim} -The Prophet {PBUH} also said: “The Good Deeds which endure are:Subhaan-Allah {Glory be to Allah}, Alhamdu-lillah {Praise be to Allah}, Laa-ilaaha-illaa-llah {There is no god, except Allah}, Allahu-Akbar {Allah is the greatest}, Laa-hawla-walaa-quwwata-illaa-billah {There’s no Might nor Power, except that of Allah}”. {Musnad Ahmad} -The above ahaadeeth shows that the combination of the {55 Alphabets} five statements could be called by both titles, i.e. The dearest words before Allah & The good deeds which endure. NUMERICAL VALUE OF “THE DEAREST WORDS BEFORE ALLAH” AND “THE GOOD DEEDS WHICH ENDURES” ***Subhaan-Allah=186, Alhamdu-lillah=148, Laa-ilaaha-illaa-llah=165, Allahu-Akbar=289, Laa-hawla-walaa-quwwata-illaa-billah=323; ***they add up as follows: 186+148+165+289+323=1,111***This shows that these statements can be repeated 1,111 times and one can also research for verses of the Qur’an and the prophetic prayers that their Alphabets add up to 1,111 so that it can be recited as it’s khutba.NOTE: Whoever discovers such verses and prophetic dua can contact me, so that I can update this write-up. May Allah reward us all abundantly, ameen. SIGNIFICANCE OF THE NUMBER “1,111” -The prophet stresses the fact that Allah is Witr {One}, He {Allah} loves Witr {Odd (numbers)}. -The Prophet also states that whoever doesn’t observe Witr, is not from us {i.e. Muhammadic Nation(Al-Ummat Muhammad)}. -The Numerologists and Mystic of Islam refer to this number ‘1,111’ as: (Adad al-Aekasha or Adad al-Aeqaga).-They know that the number is deeply rooted in the Oneness {Wahadaniyya} of Allah and that it manifests the Essence of Islamic Monotheism .*Only people of Hikmah {wisdom} will understand this write-up beyond the little I wrote here. May Allah grant us all al-Hikmah & spiritual perspicacity, Ameen.* REFERENCES 1.SAID BIN ALI BIN WAHAF AL-QAHTANI……………………………………………….. “CITADEL OF THE BELIEVER (INVOCATIONS FROM QUR‘AN & SUNNAH)”. 2.

  13. 13. ****PRAYER ARTICLE 4**** A NUMERICAL APPROACH TO THE QUR’ANIC PRAYER FOR SEEKING PIOUS SPOUSE AND OFFSPRINGS By: ISMAHEEL BAKARE We seek refuge with Almighty Allah, from the Accursed Satan. In the name of Allah, the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful. -O Allah! send Benediction and Salute upon the leader of mankind {Muhammad} , father of the leader of women in paradise and the leader of the four best women {Fatimah}, husband of one of the four best amongst women {Khadeejah}. May Allah’s Peace, Mercy and Tranquility be upon him, ameen. -Allah urges us in the Qur’aan to marry from amongst the pious {i.e. a God fearing spouse}, and if we have no financial means to do so, Allah states that one should remain chaste until He {Allah} enriches him. -In the Sahihain, it is narrated that Ibn Mas‘ud {RTA} said the Prophet {PBUH} said: “O young people {Youths}! Whoever amongst you can afford marriage, let him marry. Those who cannot afford it should resort to fasting, for it will be a cure for them.” -The Prophet {PBUH} also states that: “The best gift a man could get from Allah after Taqwa {Piety} is ‘a pious wife’ {Mar’atu-s-saaliha}.” -The prophet also states in another hadith narrated by Abu Huraira {RTA}: “A woman is married for four things; (1) her Wealth, (2) her Family status, (3) her Beauty, (4) her Religion. So, marry the religious woman, may your hand be filled with sand {a good expression}.” QUR’ANIC PRAYER FOR SEEKING PIOUS SPOUSE AND OFFSPRING RABANNAA! HAB-LANAA MIN AZWAAJINAA WA DHURRIYYATINAA QURRATA A‘HAYUNIN, WAJI-HALINAA LIL-MUTAQEENA IMAAMAAN. {AMEEN} “Our Lord! Bestow on us from our wives and our offspring the comfort of our eyes, and make us the leaders of the Righteous”. {Qur’aan25:74} A NUMERICAL APPROACH TO SUPPLICATING ALLAH WITH THE QUR’ANIC PRAYER FOR SEEKING PIOUS SPOUSE AND OFFSPRINGS -The Numerical Value of the 50 lettered invocation for seeking pious spouse and offspring is 3,206.-This synchronizes with the Numerical Value of a mode of seeking forgiveness. A 50 lettered mode of sending salat upon the prophet is also proferred as its khutba. May Allah accept our invocation, ameen.-For convenience, the Numerical Value {3, 206} can be divided through 7days (458 per day) or 14days (229 per day). The 14days will be preferable, as it is comes out to be an odd number {witr form}. PRAYER FORMULA *ASTAGFUR-LLAH, GAFUUR, BAAQII {I SEEK YOUR FORGIVENESS ALLAH, EVERLASTING, ALL-FORGIVING}=3,206 {to be done at once or 229 times for 14days}. * RABANNAA! HAB-LANAA MIN AZWAAJINAA WA DHURRIYYATINAA QURRATA A‘HAYUNIN, WAJI-HALINAA LIL-MUTAQEENA IMAAMAAN=3,206 {to be done at once or preferably, 229 times for 14days}. *ALLAHUMMAH! SALLI ALAA SAYIDINAA MUHAMMAD, WA ALAA AALIHI WA AZWAAJIHI WA DHURIYATIHI WA SALIM TASLEEMAN=Once or Thrice. NOTE: FATHERS HAVE A VERY IMPORTANT ROLE IN GUIDING THEIR CHILDREN IN THE SELECTION OF AN APPROPRIATE SPOUSE. INDEED, PROPHET ABRAHAM {IBRAHIM} PLAYED A VERY IMPORTANT ROLE IN THE SELECTION OF APPROPRIATE WIVES FOR HIS SONS {ISMAIL (ISHMAEL) AND IS’HAQ (ISAAC)}. IF THIS IS NOT WHOLLY POSSIBLE, FATHERS {& MOTHERS} WILL LARGELY CONTRIBUTE TO THIS PROCESS BY THEIR CEASELESS PRAYERS FOR THEIR CHILDREN FOR THIS PARTICULAR PURPOSE {i.e. GETTING THE IDEAL SPOUSE}. MAY ALLAH GRANT US {ALL} THAT WHICH IS GOOD FOR US IN THIS WORLD AND IN THE HEREAFTER, AMEEN. REFERENCES 1. DR. D.T. HILALI & DR.

  14. 14. *****PRAYER ARTICLE 5***** THE TWO MOST REWARDING UTTERANCES AT TIMES OF HARDSHIP AND TRIBULATION: {A MIRACULOUS SYNCHRONY OF THEIR NUMERICAL VALUES} By: ISMAHEEL BAKARE We seek refuge with Almighty Allah, from the Accursed Satan. In the name of Allah, the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful.-O Allah! send Benediction and Salute upon our Master Muhammad. The Opener of what has been closed, the Seal of Antiquity, the Helper of the Truth by the Truth, the Guide to Your straight path, and upon His Households as is the due of his immense position and grandeur. -At times of hardship and tribulation, the Creator {Allah} seeks to test the loyalty of His servants by the ways He {Allah} has described in the Qur’aan. -This article seeks to single out the two *best* utterances at difficult times, and shed light on the miraculous synchronicity of their numerical value. This will serve as a beacon for more in-depth research into other rewarding utterances at times of misfortune. May Allah guide us towards the right path, ameen. 5 CLASSES OF HARDSHIPS/CALAMITIES/TRIBULATIONS WHICH ALLAH TESTS HIS SERVANTS BY (1) FEAR, (2) HUNGER, (3) decrease in FINANCES/WEALTH, (4) decrease in LIFE SPAN or HEALTH DETERIORATION, (5) decrease in FRUITS/AGRICULTURAL PRODUCE. (Q 2:155) -Allah then urged the Prophet {PBUH} to give glad-tidings to the Patient Servants {i.e. Enduring servants}. -Allah also described the Patient Servant as: “Those whom when are afflicted with Calamity {i.e. hardship & tribulation}”, they say; *INNAA LILLAAHI, WA INNAA ILAEHI RAAJI‘UUN {TRULY! TO ALLAH WE BELONG & TRULY, TO HIM WE SHALL RETURN}. “UTTERANCE 1” (Q2:156)-We’ll also agree that in whatever situation we are, we ought to Remember Allah, give Thanks and show gratitude to Him. (Q 2:152) -The best and most profound form of giving Thanks in the Qur’aan is by saying:**ALHAMDU-LILLAHI RABBI-L-‘AALAMEEN {ALL THE PRAISES AND THANKS BE TO ALLAH, THE LORD OF THE WORLDS}. “UTTERANCE 2” (Q 1:2) 5 SETS OF QUR’ANIC SOLUTIONS FOR DEPRESSION DUE TO HARDSHIP/CALAMITY/TRIBULATION {i.e ALLAH’S TEST} (1) REMEMBRANCE OF ALLAH {DHIKR}. (2) THANKING ALLAH & SHOWING GRATITUDE {HAMD WA SHUKR}. (3) PATIENCE {SABR}. (4) PRAYER {AS-SALAAT}. (5) SAYING & BELIEVING THAT: *INNAA LILLAAHI, WA INNAA ILAEHI RAAJI‘UUN {TRULY! TO ALLAH WE BELONG & TRULY, TO HIM WE SHALL RETURN}. (Q 2 : 152-156) 14
  15. 15. NUMERICAL VALUE AND SIGNIFICANCE OF THE TWO MOST REWARDING UTTERANCES AT TIMES OF HARDSHIP AND TRIBULATION -At times of Calamity, the Adepts who might have discovered the synchrony of two important utterances of the five proffered Qur’anic solutions will advise the person in distress to recite them both 581 times each as shown below.-Related verses of the Qur’an and prophetic prayer which their Alphabets add up to 581 {the Numerical Value of the two important utterances} can be recited afterwards {at least once} as the khutba {speech}. UTTERANCE 1: *INNAA LILLAAHI, WA INNAA ILAEHI RAAJI‘HUUN {WE ARE FROM ALLAH, AND UNTO HIM WE RETURN}=581times UTTERANCE 2:*ALHAMDU-LILLAHI RABBI-L-‘AALAMEEN {ALL PRAISE & THANKS BE TO ALLAH, THE LORD OF THE WORLDS}=581times KHUTBA: KHUTBA: {RELATED VERSES AND PROPHETIC PRAYERS THAT THEIR ALPHABETS ADD UP TO 581} (1) PROPHETIC PRAYER OF SEEKING ALLAH’S REFUGE AGAINST SHAYTAN={55 Alphabets} A‘HUUDHU-BILLAHI-L-‘AZEEM, WA BI-WAJIHIHI-L-KAREEM, WA SULTAANIHI-L-QADEEM, MINA-SH-SHAETAANI RAJEEM.

  25. 25. **********ADDENDUM ARTICLE 10**********THE TIJANI PATH {TAREEQAT AT-TIJAANIYAH}: THE PATH OF LIGHT UPON LIGHT : By: ISMAHEEL BAKAREI seek refuge with Allah, the Great and with His Noble Face and His Eternal Authority fromShaytan, the Accursed.In the name of Allah, the Most-Compassionate, the Most-Merciful.O Allah! send Benediction and Salute upon Your Bright Light with which You filled Yourambience, in all the places of encompassing existence, our Master {Sayyidinaa}Muhammad {May the Peace & Mercy of Allah be Upon Him}. AAMEEN….. LIGHT UPON LIGHT {NUURUN ALAA NUURIN}An-Nuur {The Light} is one of the 99 Beautiful names of Allah and is a multi-faceted phenomenonthat can be further learnt in details from Adepts and Mystics. Indeed, GOD guides to His lightwhomsoever He wills.“Suratu-n-Nuur {Q24:35}” also describes the Light of Allah with the following phrase: “LIGHT UPON LIGHT {NUURUN ALAA NUURIN}”.Light upon Light can simply be understood to be a greater form of referring to Allah’s Light.A simple illustration of Light upon Light is evident in the comparison of the Light of the Christiansand the Jews and that of the Muslims.The Light of the Christians and Jews are incomplete and the Light of the muslims, which I call Lightupon Light is the most complete Light.This can be easily proofed by the fact that the Christians and the Jews believed in their messengersalone.But the Muslims believe not only in their messenger, they believe in all the 313 Messengers and the124,000 prophets in general.And this is one of the six articles of the Islamic Faith in which every muslim must abide by. 25
  26. 26. THE TIJANI PATH {TAREEQAT AT-TIJAANIYAH} AS THE LIGHT UPON LIGHT PATHTareeqat at-Tijaniyya is the End-time path in which Allah guides the Ummah {Community} ofProphet Muhammad.The Tareeqa Tijaanii can be regarded as the Path of LIGHT upon LIGHT because of theKhaatim al-Wilaayah {Seal of Sainthood} pedestal of the Shaykh Ahmad bn MuhammadSaalim at-Tijaanii {RTA}.Shaykh Ahmad Tijani {RTA} said that his feet are on the shoulders of all Awliyya {Saints} i.e.All the saints that were present in his time {1737-1815}, all those that were before him andall other saints till Judgment day.Another illustrious phenomenon that can further show that the Tijani path is indeed the Lightupon Light path is the Manifestation of Shaykh Ahmad at-Tijani’s prediction of the Floodwhich was to appear amongst his followers at the End time, through which people will troopinto the path in their multitude.This Flood appeared to be the Saahib al-Faedah {Shaykh al-Hajj Ibraheem Niyaas “Al-Kawlahy” (RTA)} who proselytized the path throughout the whole world and he also servesas Guiding-lamp for all muslims. PERSONAL EXPERIENCEI once dreamt of a Light pursuing me and was about to descend upon me, I was running from itand I was reciting the Qur’aanic verse I call Light upon Light verse in “Suratu-n-Nuur {Q24:35}”.I jumped on my mother’s bed and the Light descended upon the boy sleeping next to me and hebegan to tell me about my past, and this seemed to me to be true.Some months later, the boy who was just a normal Christian became a staunch devotee in hisreligion.I therefore infer from this dream that truly the Light descended upon him, but the Light was anincomplete one.I also understood the reason why the Prophet encouraged us to invoke Allah to grant us Lightupon Light.Being a member of the Ummah {Community} of Prophet and the Follower of Shaykh Ahmad at-Tijaani are the best gifts that anyone can be bestowed with, because Islam is the religion of Lightupon Light and the Tijani path is the path of Light upon Light. 26
  27. 27. NUMERICAL PROOF THAT SHOWS THAT THE TIJANI PATH IS THE LIGHT UPON LIGHT PATH-The Numerical Value of the phrase “Nuurun alaa Nuurin {Light upon Light}” is 622.-The additional Numerical Value of ALLAH, RAHMAN and RAHEEM is 622.-The additional Numerical Value of ALLAH, MUHAMMAD and TIJANI is 622. DEDUCTIONS FROM THE NUMERICAL PROOFSIt’s evident that the Numerical Values of the statement and names above synchronizes.The above names of Allah i.e. {ALLAH, RAHMAN and RAHEEM} are ismu-llahi-l-Ahzam {with whichwhen one calls the Creator with He answers, and when one asks Him by them, He answers}.The Numerical Value of ALLAH, MUHAMMAD and TIJANI also adds up to 622.This shows that the Light that reflects out of these names is a complete and perfect one.And the Light upon Light that reflects from these names shows that Islam is the most complete Deen andthe most complete Tareeqah is Tareeqat at-Tijaaniyah {Tijani Path}. END NOTE The Tareeqah Tijaniyyah is the End-time Tareeqah {Path}. It’s completeness also manifests from the fact that Tijanis respect and love all the Saints. *The writer is a Mureed and does not possess deep knowledge of the Tareeqah.I’m only trying to point out the Numerological miracle that shows that the Tariqah Tijaniyyah is the Path of Light upon Light. *Oh Allah! Place within our Hearts Light, upon our Tongues Light, within our ears Light, within our eyes Light, place above us Light, beneath us Light, on our right Light, on our left Light, before us Light, behind us Light, place Light within our souls. Magnify Light for us, make Light abundant for us,grant us Light, make us Light. Oh Allah! Bestow upon us Light, place Light in our Tendons, in our flesh Light, in our Blood Light, in our Hair Light, in our Skin Light. Oh Allah! Place Light for us in our graves, Light in our bones, Increase us with Light and grant us LIGHT UPON LIGHT, ameen. REFERENCES 1.
