Zidhu yaa Rabbee,`izzan wa sharafan nooran wa surooran, sultaanan wa ridwaana. O our Lord! Give much more power to Your obedient servants.
O our Attenders! As-salaamu `alaykum. How are you today, happy or unhappy? If you are asking to be happy, try to make our Lord happy with us. Without making our Lord happy, you can't be happy here or Hereafter. And, we are saying now, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. We are trying to give our most high respect to our Lord, Almighty Allah. (Mawlana Shaykh sits)
Hayyy, Hayyy, Hayyy, Hayyyy, Hayyyy, Hayyyyyyy.
Huuuu, Huuuuu, Huuuu, Huuuu, Huuuuu, Huuu,
only You, Huuuu, Huuu, Huuuu, Huuu, Huuuu, Huuuu, Huuuu.
That is for our Lord's representative from pre-Eternal up to Eternal. He is not changing representatives; there is only one representative, yes.
O our Attenders! As-salaamu `alaykum. Today is Sunday. You like to go please yourselves as today is a holiday and you are trying to be happy. How are you going to be happy, I am asking our attenders. First, to meet our wives' demands, because if you are speaking one, they are speaking ten. If you are speaking ten, they are speaking twenty. Always, mashaa-Allah, their tongues are like machine guns, dir, dir, dir, wir, wir, wir. For what? "Today is a holiday and we must enjoy." Who asks for enjoyment with material aspects are ignorant and no-mind people. Those who are asking pleasure by material aspect means they are such no-mind creatures! If a person is not making a difference between a real and an artificial diamond, that means they prefer to be on the level of animals' world. No!
O People! The Lord of Heavens Who created us is unhappy if you are making your aims for material aspects, then the Lord of Heavens is not happy with you. If the Lord of Heavens is unhappy with you, which thing may make you happy? Finished! If you will be in heaps of gold or diamonds, you are feeling unhappy and will never be pleased and in pleasure, here or Hereafter!
O common People, our Attenders! You must always think something about what we are trying to speak and make translation of heavenly ones' languages. Yes, my mission is only to teach common people from what heavenly ones are asking from you. What are heavenly beings asking from us? Because heavenly beings like that people may reach a real pleasure, but you are changing your ways and saying, "No! We are not following heavenly aspects; we always prefer material aspects!" That is wrong. But people think, "We must enjoy ourselves, we are not thinking about tomorrow. Today we must try as much as possible to reach pleasure on this day and it is a holiday for us." It is fully a wrong idea, but shaytanic teaching is, "O my followers, you must always try to take your pleasure in every day. Don't think for coming days, but today you must try as much as possible to make yourself in pleasure." Pleasure and pleasement are all heavenly grants, they are not material aspects, no! You may reach material aspects; for example, you may make heaps of gold or jewels, but these can't give you something that belongs to heavenly aspects or to spirituality. Spirituality is never satisfied by material aspects. For what are we trying to make heaps of dollars, euros, pounds, gold, or jewels? That belongs to the material world, but what you are asking is beyond those material aspects; you are asking a pleasure, pleasement and happiness, but all of them are spiritual aspects.
You may find so many people with nothing to dress and a very small hut to live in, but they are more happy than those people who have skyline buildings. They can't understand what that hut-man is finding of pleasure. They have one, ten, or more skyscrapers, but no real pleasure. That person living in a hut and his humble life gives him pleasure. He has nothing from the material world for himself, but he is pleased. People have been granted millions, billions, trillions, quadrillions from material aspects, but they are not happy!
O our Attenders, common People! Don't be cheated, as common people must be much more clever. They are praising, "This one is such a rich one, this one has too much money, this one has too much business." What, can you eat business? Why are you saying this? "He has a gigantic business." What is it giving to its owner? He is only eating one cup of meal and some drinks, eating and finished. And you may say, "These ten skyline buildings are for me," and that one says, "No, it is for me." Can you take it and carry that high building to another place, away from that one? Impossible! Why are people running after the impossible?
O Salaafiyoon! O Salafi `ulamas! Marhaban! That is a question. Where are you, sleeping? Because everyone in the Arabian Peninsula is a rich one, and no one knows your richness, yes! What is happening to you? People are thinking that enjoyment, pleasure, pleasement, happiness, contentment, and satisfaction is with buildings or with billions of gold coins, or boxes full of jewels, no! Why are you not saying to Arabian shaykhs and mulook? Why are you not awakening people, eeqaadh, to say that it is not a real enjoyment for you to have such richness, as it is not a target for Mankind. The main target must be heavenly aspects. If you are not making this, that means you are wasting your life that is a grant from the Lord of Heavens for nothing. Your being is a grant from the Heavens and that One Who is giving to you a heavenly being is making for you heavenly aspects. The Lord of Heavens never likes that His servants are running after dunya, gold, jewels, buildings, after cars!
Allah Almighty is asking from His servants, "O My servants, I am only asking from you servanthood for your Creator. I am that One, the Most Glorified, Most Majestic, Most High, Most Mighty! That is for Me and you are running after nothing? You are not coming to Me! I am the Lord, I am the Creator, and I am the Most Generous to grant to you and you are running after nothing, something of no value? All that you are running after, if you reach all treasures on Earth or under Earth, it is not even worth the wing of a mosquito, it has no value! Endless valuable grants are in My majestic, glorified territories and dominions. Why are you not coming? My dominions are endless and you are wasting your lives for nothing, running after Shaytan, and Shaytan is teaching you to always ask for more material aspects. Leave that and ask for never-ending heavenly aspects!"
In this world everything is ending, but in heavenly levels your Lord, Almighty Allah, is granting to you never-ending grants! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits)
O People! Don't be cheated! I am a weak servant, and my mission, and there are countless ones who are giving and their missions will be the same as we are trying to do. Perhaps a million ones you can find, and their missions are only to warn, "Beware! Hear what is the mission of all prophets and after prophets, their inheritors, who must be in every time!"
Everyones' declarations are only one point? What is that? Say, Salafi `ulamas! Wahhabiyoon are no-mind people, so leave them because they are not understanding. They sold their understanding and now they are never understanding anything! But I am asking to Salafi `ulamas, what is that point for all warners? There is one point from every talk that they are giving to people; what is their real aim? What are they doing? They are saying, "O People! Follow us!" and people answer, "How can we follow you?"
Yes, you must follow those warners. Warners declared war on Shaytan! I`alaanu 'l-harb, declaration of war. Every day, every time they are addressing people, they mean to say, "O People! You must declare war against Shaytan and shaytanic agents and their followers!" i`alaanu 'l-harb, a war declaration. Every day we have been ordered to say to people, "O People! Beware, and you must declare war against evil powers and Shaytan and its agents!" That is the meaning. We may speak too much, but that is a summary for all warners. They are saying, "O People! We declared war since our first father, Adam (a) was taken out from Paradise. Adam declared war against Shaytan and he advised his children, 'O my children, I declared war against Shaytan because he is the main reason that I have been taken out from Paradise. I am at war with Shaytan, O my children, O my descendants, and you must also declare war against Shaytan because he did his worst for me and for my children. We were in Paradise, but if he is there, that is the center of evil. He is never happy even for one person to be in Paradise, and I was one with my wife, Hawwa (a), and he was unhappy and he tried until we may be thrown out from Paradise.' And that is Shaytan's mission and our mission: all prophets, advisors, heavenly messengers and all holy books are declaring war against Shaytan and its followers and agents. Beware of Shaytan!'"
May Allah forgive us for the honor of the Seal of Prophets. (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Say, Allahuma salli ‘ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa `ala alihi wa sahbihi was sallim. (Mawlana Shaykh sits)
(40 minutes) Mashaa-Allah. Even today is Sunday and attenders are playing. Shaytan is saying to them, "Today you must dance, you must enjoy yourself." Even now they are listening and Shaytan is exploding, getting very angry, and I am saying to Shaytan, ptuuh (spit)! Everyone must say, "Ptuuh! Get away!" I was tired inside, but here I am getting strong. I was very tired inside because so many of Shaytan's people were there, they belong to Shaytan.
(Mawlana Shaykh prays two raka`at Salaat ash-Shukr.)
