Suhbah after Jumu`ah Khutbah
(Mawlana Shaykh stands.) Dastoor yaa RijaalAllah. Bismillah, la hawla wa la quwwata illa billahi ‘l-Aleeyu ‘l-Azheem. Yaa Sayyidee, madad. Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmaani ‘r-Raheem. La ilaaha illa-Llah. La ilaaha illa-Llah. La ilaaha illa-Llah, Sayyidina Muhammadun Rasoolullah `alayhi salaatullah wa ‘s-salaam. Dastoor yaa RijaalAllah, dastoor yaa Sultanu ‘l-Awliya, dastoor. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)
O our Lord, forgive us! We are asking your blessings here and Hereafter. We are weak servants and we need someone that may hold our hands and lead us for guiding us through these terrible, terrible situations all people are falling in. Nothing more useful for saving us from falling into troubles here and into hells after this life.
As-salaamu `alaykum. We are saying a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shataani ‘r-rajeem. Shaytan is the biggest trouble-maker and the teacher of trouble-making and now people are becoming trouble-makers, making trouble for themselves. Our activities and our lives now in such a way that people everywhere attracting troubles to come on themselves just as a magnet you are putting in a place and carrying everything iron around it. For what? Because they are hearing and listening and following shaytanic directives, nothing else, never saying,”There is a God that created us and so many prophets came to show true way from wrong way, ways guiding people to Paradise or carrying people to the fire, to hells!”
We are living in last part of life on this planet, or just entered the last period of dunya now. We are looking day-by-day; daily cursings coming on people to eat each other and people asking to kill everyone. What is that? Allah, Allah. O our Lord! (So much) killing, destroying--what is that foolishness? In the Islamic world Allah Almighty (swt) is saying, “O My servants, I am sending to you (...audio cut...) continents huge oceans on this, no one thinking. And all with no mind. (Turkish)
O Salafi `ulamas! Why you are not saying Who is putting that planet there and arranging everything on it? Only teaching not to accept anything from a being’s spirituality. We are only spiritual beings and they are saying,”No!” Who put this planet here, why are you not saying? Why are you not saying, ‘Allah, Jallah Jalaaluhu!’ Allahu akbar! (Mawlana stands.) SubhaanAllah! Sayyidina Muhammadan Rasoolullah (s)! Therefore, I am swearing and I only know to swear in Turkish as they are trying to follow atheists. If no God, who is putting that there? How are they saying this? I’m sorry to say that even the Islamic world (...audio cut...)
Salafi `ulama not accepting others. Where are you? Why are you not warning? What is going to happen is on your head! Allah Almighty is saying to Rasoolullah (s) to say through Holy Qur’an,”O People, you are just on the edge of a valley full of fire, but the Lord of Heavens is sending to you the Seal of Prophets with the last message to save you.” Where are the Arabs, who are saying they are Arabs? What are you understanding, Muslim `ulama from Egypt, Damascus, Hijaaz, Pakistan? And Pakistan saying,”No one can be like us Muslims, to put fire on our body and make an explosion.” That is Islam?
Where are their `ulama, I am only knowing Minhaj al-Qur’an `alim Muhammad Abdu 'r-Rahman (opposing suicide bombing), and (yet) so many saying they are learned `ulamas. What did you learn? Allah Almighty is saying:
وَلاَ تَقْتُلُواْ أَنفُسَكُمْ
wa laa taqtuloo anfusakum
nor kill (or destroy) yourselves. (4:29)
It is Arabic. What are you saying, O Salafi `ulamas? What Allah is saying, laa taqtuloo anfusakum, why are you not saying what it (really) means, to put bombs on their bodies, first killing themselves and then others?! Why are you not saying it is haraam?! Whoever is doing this should be killed. Why are you not making fatwa that this is not Islam, to kill innocent people? Rasoolullah (s) did such a thing? What does it mean, to put bombs on people and killing? That is their fighting? Afghans no-mind people, Pakistan, `Ajam, and Turkey following them. What is that foolishness? Where are their `ulamas? What is Allah Almighty saying? First fatwa from Azhar ash-Shareef must be that whoever is killing themselves and others must be in the Hellfire forever! Who is denying the Holy Qur’an, how can he be a Muslim? No imaan.!
What is that, to kill themselves? Everyday, people putting something on themselves and entering a hotel or a casino and exploding; that is Islam? Does Allah help them? I am a very weak servant, my stepping from here up to the door, but they are so big ones, claiming,”We are Salafi `ulama.” I am addressing to those that never accepting other `ulamas. Give a fatwa that this is haraam; why you are not giving? Allah should punish them here and Hereafter!! We are asking the way of Rasoolullah (s)!!!
Shaykh Hisham in the khutbah today was speaking about:
الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ وَكَانُواْ يَتَّقُونَ
alladheena aamanoo wa kaanoo yattaqoon,
Those who believe and constantly guard against evil ... (10:63)
Taab`ikum, tasleemun, irshaadun. That ummah, instead of denying Wahabi ways is denying awliyaullah! How? Allah Almighty is giving honor to them; that is mawjood (present) or mafqood (lost)? Awliyaullah are through ourselves, or no? Where are those awliyaullah, holy ones, whose hearts are always looking to the Lord of Heavens? Where? Now finished! Old ones are making Salafi `ulama to give fatwa for demolition, for awliya’s tombs not to be known. Allah Almighty showing them even in Mecca al-Mukarramah and we are as if not to be known! Even shuhudaa `Uhud, Sahaabi Sayyidina Hamza (r), (they are) making his grave not to be known!! Why? Who is making that haraam? Allah is showing them where are awliyaullah and up to now, even in the time of the Prophet (s) they were destroying, not to be seen, not to be known. What is that foolishness? How you are fighting awliyaullah and Allah (swt) asking for awliyaullah to be known?!!
أَلا إِنَّ أَوْلِيَاء اللّهِ لاَ خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلاَ هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ
alaa inna awliyaallahi la khawfun alayhim wa la hum yahzanoon
Behold, verily on the friends of Allah, there is no fear nor shall they grieve. (10:62)
Laa hawla wa laa quwwata! Therefore, one whip on non-Muslims and seventy whips should come as a punishment on Muslims! Astiadhu billaah the Qur’an Kareem is giving meanings by some verses:
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ اتَّقُواْ اللّهَ وَكُونُواْ مَعَ الصَّادِقِينَ
Yaa ayyuha ‘ l-ladheena aamanu ‘ttaqullaaha wa koonoo m`a as-sadiqeen
O ye who believe, fear Allah and be with those who are true (in word and deed.) (9:119)
Do you think when Allah Almighty is saying something, it is not to follow? Allah Almighty is addressing believers, Yaa ayyuha ‘ l-ladheena aamanu ‘ttaqullaaha,”You must fear from Allah Almighty and His cursing!” If asking how can we fear, He is saying,”Don’t harm anything, even an ant without any proof. Don’t kill, don’t kill!” Allah is ordering to make people to live and not to be killed!! “I am creating them. How you are killing them?” You must think one day you must be killed also!
O People! If we are asking for a safe and happy life here and Hereafter, to be granted Paradise on the Day of Resurrection, you must follow beloved ones, awliyaullah, saints, holy ones. If not, all of you are going. Allah Almighty giving for everything a reality about that one. So many stories. Only Shaykh Hisham Effendi, even my reciting:
وَجَاء مِنْ أَقْصَى الْمَدِينَةِ رَجُلٌ يَسْعَى قَالَ يَا قَوْمِ اتَّبِعُوا الْمُرْسَلِينَ
Bismillahi ‘r-Raahmani ‘r-Raheem.
wa jaa'a min aqsa 'l-madinati rajulun yasa`a qaala yaa qawmi ‘ttabi`u 'l-mursaleen.
Then there came running from the farthest part of the city a man saying,”O my People! Obey the apostles.” (36:20)
Allah Almighty ordered two saints, holy ones, to call people to Islam, to believe in their Lord and His holy commands. They came to the city of Antioch but the people refused to believe them. Then Habeeb al-Najjar who had met them along the way came running, asking what happening, and they said the saints asking them to believe in a Lord other than their Lord, and they refused this message, threatening to kill the saints. Habeeb al-Najjar said,”O people, they are calling you to believe in the Right Path and you are being cruel?” So the men rushed on him and killed him. Then Allah Almighty was angry, and ordering the angels to come to the entrance of their fortress and making those angels to shout,”Ohhhhhhhh,” and all of them like burned bodies, black, falling down and finishing!
إِن كَانَتْ إِلاَّ صَيْحَةً وَاحِدَةً فَإِذَا هُمْ خَامِدُونَ
in kaanat illa sayhatan waahidatan fa idhaa hum khaamidoon
It was no more than a single mighty blast and behold, they were (like ashes) quenched and silent. (36:29)
Look, what was the reason? Because they were running on Habeeb al-Najjar, to kill him. Whoever was around killed him and the others were coming and stepping on his body. Then heavenly anger and cursing was coming on them, commanding that all of them should be killed.
If one person is going to agree with a person that is doing zhulm, oppressing, and saying it is good for them to be killed, have you created them that you are saying it is good for them to be killed?!! Therefore, fear surrounding all of those who are killing and so many hundreds, thousands, millions of people should be killed also!! And Allah Almighty is saying, wa la taqtuloo anfusakum,”Nor kill (or destroy) yourselves.” (4:29)
Even though they are not shooting, they are saying it is good to let them die or be killed. You must find who is responsible, who is giving trouble to people, who is the oppressor and they should be killed, not innocent people, small ones, old ones or disabled ones!! What is their mistake? They are innocent ones, why are they being killed? Now a heavy revenge is coming, from six, only one should remain and five should be taken away. If the whole of them should be six-billion, only one-billion should remain and five-billion should be taken away. Angels are saying, don’t cry for them because they were denying the Holy Qur’an and holy orders.
O People! Try to be good ones, don’t be bad ones. Allah Almighty is asking that you should be good servants; He likes good servants, He never likes bad servants. Bad servants should be taken away. Allah, astaghfirullah. I am fearing from my nafs, not to be with them. Therefore, O people, ask forgiveness from Allah Almighty. If they are making me to speak, up to next Jumu`ah it will never finish!
What they are saying is not for saving people here and Hereafter, because they think everything is finishing here and (there is) no more (Hereafter) behind this life! Who killing themselves by their own will, and killing others, their punishment is going to be up to the Day of Resurrection!! Every second that one’s body should come together and there should be a new explosion for that one, up until the end of the world. I don’t know how many thousands or millions of times, it will not finish and they will be punished up to Day of Resurrection!! If you are killing with a revolver you will be killed with that up to the Day of Resurrection again and again, and also if killing by sword, you will be killed by the sword again and again.
Allah, Allah, Allah, tawbah yaa Rabbee, tawbah yaa Rabbee, (we) repent, O our Lord!
O Allah! Send us someone who may save us from oppressors, jabaabirah l`anatullahi `alayhim.
Fatihah. May Allah (swt) forgive us.
