The technique of breathing -Inhale and Exhale
Now start by inhaling from the right nostril consciously, slowly and deeply breath and slowly pull as if you’re pulling the energy from your right toe, breath and push it up until you can feel it reach your forehead, hold it for second or more and release from the left nostril again consciously, slowly and deeply breath out and as if you’re pushing if your into your left toe, keep your mind and heart at ease and keep the picture of the Shaykh in your mind and especially in your Heart, do this for a minutes or short while.
Once you can feel and see and picture in your heart. You may call on him; He is Imam of this Time, the Man of this Time, Thus called out; Ya Sidi Hamza Qadiri Budshishi help me!
Now you may Inhale and Exhale the Sufi meditation formula of remembrance:
Once you can see the shaykh in your mind and Heart then start to read the dhikr-remembrance, formula, which is split into two halves;
La-e-laha and slowly releasing out ill-lal-lah as explained above.
Read like this breath in Laa-e-laahaaaaa and exhale; ill-lal-laaaaaaah and keeping in mind the picture of the shaykh. (Prolong the second part of ill-lal-laaaaaaah, see note below) Read this for a few minutes. Start breathing more slowing and deeply the words need to come from inside do not open your mouth and say the words.
Note: Lengthening the Pronunciation of La-e-laha ill-lal-lah -'Erases 4,000 Grave Sins'
....("No god except God" and lengthens his pronunciation intending thereby to magnify God, God will forgive for him Four thousand grave sins with it, and if he did not commit Four thousand, God will forgive the difference for his family and neighbours. -hadith-tradition
It is related in the hadith: "Whoever says "No god except God" and lengthens his pronunciation intending thereby to magnify God, Four thousand of his sins are astruck thereby from the register of his sins." hadith-tradition
Whoever says "No god except God" in astonishment at something, God creates from each letter of his utterance a tree with as many leaves as the days of this world, each leaf asking forgiveness for him and praising God on his behalf until the Day of judgment."... It has been related that this phrase has on the side of Iblis-(the devil) the effect which a gangrenous sore would have on the side of a human being.
God has created a pillar made of ruby and light whose foundation is the pillar beneath the seventh earth and whose top winds around the base of God's throne. Every time a servant of God says: "There is no god but God, Muhammad is the Messenger of God," the earth, the whale, and the throne move, and God says: "Be still!" and the throne replies, "By Thy might, not until you forgive the one who said "La ilaha illallah."" But God says: "Be still, for I have made a covenant with Myself before I created My creation, whereby I shall not cause it to be spoken by the tongue of a servant of Mine except that I have forgiven him even before he says it.".... Taken from Shahada has 24 Letters and 7 words each letter forgives every hour of each day.
Once you feel like ending the Sufi meditation session, just stop saying the words and breathe normally, keep your eyes shut and feel the moment you’re in and taste that moment.
(Once you are strong enough you may move into a mixed room of people if you want or stay in an empty room to do this.)
A general scientific principle states that whenever a vacuum (vacuum is a volume of space that is essentially 'empty' of matter, the word comes from the Latin term for ‘empty’) is created, something comes into fill it and therefore the vacuum does not stay as is. Similarly when we sit and strive to remove all thoughts from our heart the aim is to create a void-(a clearing out) that will hopefully be filled with thoughts of God and the Shaykh.
Darkness and light cannot coexist in the same space. Hence the more we strive to rid our hearts of filth, the hope is that divine light, goodness and blessing will enter to replace the darkness that was there. This is why it is extremely important to do muraqaba in abundance. Wherever in the Holy Quran we find the command to practice dhikr- remembrance, the word is accompanied with the adjective signifying abundance, thus dhikr kathir-abundance of remembrance.
A tradition says ‘If your hearts were always in the state that they are in during dhikr, the angels would come to see you to the point that they would greet you in the middle of the road.’ -(Sahih Muslim). Commenting on this tradition Imam Nawawi says: "This kind of sight is shown to someone who persists in meditation (muraqaba), reflection (fikr), and anticipation (iqbal) of the next world.
