Awliyaullah membersihkan para pengikut mereka dan Allah memberi mereka kekuatan untuk mempersiapkan para pengikut mereka setiap 24 jam untuk berada di hadirat Nabi (saw), inilah cita rasanya. Meskipun kita membaca qasidah dan shalawat memuji Nabi (saw), kita tidak berada di hadiratnya yang suci, tetapi mereka berada di sana.
Awliyaullah clean their followers and Allah gave them the power to prepare their followers every 24 hours to be in the presence of Prophet (s): that is the taste. Although we recite qasidas and salawaat in praise of the Prophet (s), we are not in his Holy Presence, but they are.
When they recite, their salawaat is much higher than anyone else’s. With that immense power that no one else can reach, they dress those salawaat on their mureeds and present them in the presence of the Prophet (s). That is not easy, every word has a meaning there; you have to digest it with heart and mind. Allah (swt) gave to Prophet (s) and he gave to the Ummah, and also there are Awliya who have the responsibility to clean the Ummah. They cannot come on the Day of Resurrection and say nothing, they are responsible for every one of us. Wilaya is not an easy issue, it is an ocean! For example, today I spoke a little bit about Salaat al-Faatih:
Salaat al-Faatih, Salutation of the Victor
اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلى سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ الفاتِحِ لِمَا أُغْلِقَ و الخاتِمِ لِمَا سَبَقَ نَاصِرِ الحَقِّ بَالحَقَّ و الهَادِي إلى.صِرَاطِكَ المُسْتَقِيمِ و عَلَى آلِهِ حَقَّ قَدْرِهِ و مِقْدَارِهِ العَظِيم
Allahumma salli `alaa Sayyidinaa Muhammadini ‘l-faatihi limaa ughliq, wa ‘l-khaatimi limaa sabaq, naasiri ‘l-haqqi bi ‘l-haqq, wa ‘l-haadi ilaa siraatika ‘l-mustaqeem, wa `alaa aalihi haqqa qadrihi wa miqdaarihi ‘l-`azheem.
O Allah! Bless our Master Muhammad (s), who opened what was closed and who is the Seal of what went before, he who makes the Truth victorious by the Truth, the guide to Your Straight Path, and bless his Household as is due his immense position and grandeur.
This salawaat has a specific power and when you recite it as part of the awraad they immediately throw you in the Ocean of Mercy which relates to Prophet (s). That is why it is a cure for every disease. Allahumma salli `alaa Sayyidinaa Muhammadini ‘l-faatihi limaa ughliq, Prophet (s) is “the Opener of What is Closed,” whatever is closed. There are 70,000 veils between us and Prophet (s) and Salawaat al-Faatih will lift these veils one by one!
