Bismillah Hir Rahman nir Raheem

 

Hazrat Shaykh Banaras Owaisi went in to a state of Muraqabah after salah,  I ask Allah Kareem give me a language and tone that the Qari was reciting. Just as this thought passed through my head I fell in to sajdah.  I see myself heading towards al Kabbah. I see a large amount of Noor coming amount of Hajar Al-Aswad gushing towards me, then I see the whole Quran writing like a Reel going in to my Brain. I see the doors of Al Kabbah opening and I drowned into a ocean of Noor that came out of the kabbah. I fell down. I see the flag which has Allah Wrote on it the. I see my master salahualiwaslama come towards they gifted me a Green flag with the Shahadah wrote on it. I see all saints coming towards me. I started reciting the holy Quran which came infront me. I got a gift from My Lord Allah Azawajal the mericiful a beautiful gift. The Quran. I was able to recite it infront of my master Salahualywaslam. 

 

"Verily, with hardship there is relief" (Qur'an 94:6) 

 

Allah said that when Musa came for His appointment and spoke to Him directly, he asked to see Him, 

﴿رَبِّ أَرِنِى أَنظُرْ إِلَيْكَ قَالَ لَن تَرَانِى﴾

("O my Lord! Show me (Yourself), that I may look upon You.'' Allah said: "You cannot see Me,'') `You cannot' (Lan) by no means indicates that seeing Allah will never occur, as (the misguided sect of) Al-Mu`tazilah claimed. The Hadiths of Mutawatir grade narrated from the Messenger of Allah, affirm that the believers will see Allah in the Hereafter. We will mention these Hadiths under the explanation of Allah's statement, 

﴿وُجُوهٌ يَوْمَئِذٍ نَّاضِرَةٌ - إِلَى رَبِّهَا نَاظِرَةٌ ﴾

(Some faces that Day shall be radiant. Looking at their Lord.) ﴿75:22-23﴾ In earlier Scriptures, it was reported that Allah said to Musa, "O Musa! No living soul sees Me, but will perish, and no solid but will be demolished.'' Allah said here, 

﴿فَلَمَّا تَجَلَّى رَبُّهُ لِلْجَبَلِ جَعَلَهُ دَكًّا وَخَرَّ موسَى صَعِقًا﴾

(So when his Lord appeared to the mountain, He made it collapse to dust, and Musa fell down unconscious.) In his Musnad Imam Ahmad recorded from Anas bin Malik that the Prophet said about Allah's saying; 

﴿فَلَمَّا تَجَلَّى رَبُّهُ لِلْجَبَلِ﴾

(And when his Lord appeared to the mountain, ) 

«هكذا»

(Like this) then he held out the tip of his little finger. At-Tirmidhi recorded this in the chapter of Tafsir for this Ayah, then he said; "This Hadith is Hasan Sahih Gharib.'' This was also recorded by Al-Hakim in his Mustadrak through the route of Hamad bin Salamah, and he said; "This Hadith is Sahih according to the criteria of Muslim and they did not record it.'' And As-Suddi reported that `Ikrimah reported from Ibn `Abbas about Allah's saying, 

﴿فَلَمَّا تَجَلَّى رَبُّهُ لِلْجَبَلِ﴾

(And when his Lord appeared to the mountain,) Only the extent of the little finger appeared from Him, 

﴿جَعَلَهُ دَكًّا﴾

(He made it collapse) as dust;

﴿وَخَرَّ موسَى صَعِقًا﴾

(And Musa fell down unconscious) fainting from it. Ibn Jarir recorded these because of the relation to the word Al-Ghashi. 

﴿فَلَمَّآ أَفَاقَ﴾

(Then when he (Musa) recovered his senses) after he lost consciousness, 

﴿قَالَ سُبْحَـنَكَ﴾

(he said: "Glory be to You,'') thus, praising, glorifying and honoring Allah since no living soul could see Him in this life and remain alive. Musa' statement, 

﴿تُبْتُ إِلَيْكَ﴾

("I turn to You in repentance'') means, according to Mujahid, that from asking you to look at you, 

﴿وَأَنَاْ أَوَّلُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ﴾

("and I am the first of the believers.''), among the Children of Israel, according to Ibn `Abbas, Mujahid, and Ibn Jarir preferred this view. Or, according to another narration from Ibn `Abbas, the meaning of, 

﴿وَأَنَاْ أَوَّلُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ﴾

("and I am the first of the believers.''), is that `none shall see You (in this life).' Allah said, 

﴿وَخَرَّ موسَى صَعِقًا﴾

(And Musa fell down unconscious.) Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri and Abu Hurayrah narrated a Hadith from the Prophet that is suitable to mention here. As for the Hadith from Abu Sa`id, Al-Bukhari recorded in his Sahih that he said: A Jew came to the Prophet after his face was smacked, and said, "O Muhammad! One of your companions from Al-Ansar smacked me on the face.'' The Prophet said, 

«ادْعُوه»

(Summon him) and he was summoned. The Prophet asked him, 

«لِمَ لَطَمْتَ وَجْهَهُ؟»

(Why did you smack his face) He said, "O Allah's Messenger! I passed by that Jew and heard him swearing, `No, by He Who has chosen Musa over mankind!' I said, `Over Muhammad too', and I became angry and struck his face.'' The Prophet said,

In the hadith of Jibreel, when he asked the Prophet (s) about ihsan (goodness and excellence), the Prophet (s) replied, "Ihsan is to worship Allah as if you see Him, but since we do not see Him we should know that He sees us at all times." (Bukhari and Muslim) The meaning of this hadith is the definition of muraqabah. Namely, the endurance of the servant's knowledge and his conviction and certainty that Allah is watching over his internal and external affairs. To have this knowledge and certainty at all times is called muraqabah. It is the fruit of the servant's knowledge that Allah is his Watcher, Over-seeing him, Hearing his utterances, and Observing all of his deeds at all times.

Al-Junaid said:

The one firm in muraqabah fears the waste of even a moment for other than his Lord." Dhun-Nun said: "The sign of muraqabah is to favor what Allah has sent down (of the revelation), to glorify what Allah has glorified, and to despise what Allah has despised.

Ibrahim Al-Khawass said:

Muraqabah is the sincerity of both the internal and external to Allah.

It has been said that"

The best that man may cling to on this road to Allah is muhasabah(reckoning of the self), muraqabah, and governing his conduct with knowledge.
