In the Name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful.

Regarding the subject of the awareness of what is to come and the beginning of the new cycle, humanity can be divided into three groups. The first group, of which not much need be said, are the ones who are oblivious to the impending disaster.

The second group are those who worry about the end of the cycle. Of this group we can say that they are already partly conscious or you could say that they have accumulated enough awareness to see the shortcomings of humanity. In this regard they are saved and yet not saved. They are like the passengers in a bus that is racing downhill without brakes. The fact that they can see that there are no brakes will not stop the bus in its destructive progress into the abyss. They can prepare themselves for the end of the road but they are unable to change the direction or halt the movement of the vehicle. This knowledge that events are spinning out of control can lead to states of anxiety, disillusionment, and negative thoughts, which, in turn, can contribute to the behaviour of the ones who have caused this catastrophe. The saving grace of this second group is that they saw wrongdoing and that they are able to see wrong. Their downfall lies in their total belief in material things and humanism and they are, thereby, unable to change the cycle of destruction.

There is a saying of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (may the salutations of Allah be upon him and peace) that prayer and supplication can change the course of destiny. So if we want to be amongst those to change the course of destiny, we cannot seek to change it by wishing to change the causes. We have to go right back to the primary cause and connect ourselves to the source of life itself, which is Allah. We become part of the third group by acknowledging this fact and working on ourselves to change the darkness within us to light, change our negativity to positive thought, speech, and action, and following the way of the great and final Messenger of God, Muhammad (Peace be upon him). He did see the future of humanity or you could say that he came from the future itself, because of his miraculous powers from the Absolute and his realisation in God. He is the Most Beloved of God and is the one who said, "Creation is the family of God. And the most beloved of God are those who care for the family of God." We truly believe that if we follow in his footsteps and practice the method he brought to us all, we can have no doubt whatsoever that the course of humanity will change for the better. If we want to live our lives like a Hollywood movie then we can sit back in our comfortable chairs and wait for the end. Most surely, the end will come. To live in darkness requires no effort.

From the treasures of the teaching of our Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) we are presenting the following formulas for the sake of Light, so that Light may fill our hearts, our thoughts and our speech and actions. Then through the power of the Love of God in our prayer, supplication and meditations, we will be able, with God's permission, to change the course of humanity so that peace may fill our lives.

The spiritual practice known as Al Asaas (the foundation of human consciousness) is overflowing with barakah (blessing) and, with the Grace of Allah, this spiritual energy will bring benefit to any genuine and sincere seeker of truth who turns to this exalted method of remembrance with need and humility.

In preparation, one should make ablutions with clean, flowing water (wudhu). Then isolate yourself in a quiet room or corner, and be seated comfortably. Recite, with awareness and purpose, the following five formulas, or as much as you can. On completion make supplication to God, and with His help, one will be able to change oneself and to help humanity and all the creations of God.

This practice is to be completed twice each day. The best times for the performance of this blessed exercise is in the early morning a short while before sunrise and in the late afternoon just before sunset.

These spiritual formulas are a gift from God to humanity and contain an abundance of secrets. Each recitation can generate so much spiritual energy in one's system that one's supplications will have wings to fly to God.

Wa ma taufi'iq illa billah. And there is no success except by Allah.
