Madad, yaa Sayyidee. (Mawlana Shaykh stands) La ilaaha illa-Llah. La ilaaha illa-Llah. La ilaaha illa-Llah Muhammadan Rasoolullah, `alayhi salaatullahi wa salaam wa `ala sayyid al-anbiya wa 'l-awliya wa 's-saaliheen. Yaa Rabbi 'l-`Alameen! Zidna........ warda `anna w `afoo `anna w 'aghfir lanaa w 'arhamna wa tub `alayna.....waslih shanaana wa shaan al-muslimeen ..., sultaan al-insi wal jinn, Sayyidina Mahdi, ayyadahullah, ashaarahullah!

A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. Ayyuha 'l-ghaafiloon, ayyuha 'l-jaahiloon, ayyuha at-taagheen, ayyuha at-tughaat, O heedless ones! O ignorant ones! O oppressors! Keep your positions! Try to keep your promise on the Day of Resurrection and say, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem! Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem! (Mawlana Shaykh sits) Thumma 's-salaam `ala Saahib az-Zamaan, thumma 's-salaam `ala Saahib al-Mutassarif fi 'd-dunya kamaa yuhibbu rabbunaa wa yardaa!‬

O People! All of us know nothing, but we must try to learn. All of us must try to understand our missions, for what have we been created. O our attenders from Mankind and Jinn! We have a responsibility in the Divine Presence. Don't forget the Day of Promises, when we said, "O our Lord, You are Allah, our Creator, and we are giving our oath that we are Your servants and not servants for anyone else." O our Lord, help us to fulfill our oath.

O our Attenders! Why have we been ordered to fast? O Salafi `ulamas, make it clear to all nations from Arabs and for everyone else. We must make it clear for all Mankind, that for which purpose have we given our oath to our Lord Almighty. Make it clear and say first to Arabs: because Allah Almighty is sending His most respected and honored and glorified one. For which purpose? What do you think, O Salafi `ulamas? Who was Allah Almighty addressing and speaking to? For the sake of Allah, say!

O Wahhabi People! You no-mind ones! Say, to whom was Allah Almighty addressing and speaking on the Day of pre-Eternal? Salafi `ulamas, say! Make it clear to all nations! Is Allah speaking or not, or was Allah speaking in His Eternity or not? Was He sitting like me and thinking? What do you think? Our brothers, say and make it clear! You must make everything clear. Don’t say, “We are `ulamas, we are Wahhabi `ulamas.” If you are Wahhabi people, I am asking you, to whom was Allah Almighty addressing and speaking? Allah Almighty addressed that most glorified one, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits) I am very astonished and asking you, when Allah Almighty addressed, was He speaking through pre-Eternal, and was He standing or sitting?

O Jewish Rabbis! What is your understanding? When Allah Almighty addressed Moses (a), was He sitting or standing? What do you think? Was He sitting under an olive tree? Say, rabbis! Where are you? You are saying, “We are Jewish people, and the most important prophet was Moses." I am asking you, so say! When Allah Almighty addressed Moses (a) on Mount Sinai, was He standing up? Was Allah standing, and Moses sitting, or was Allah sitting and Moses standing? What do you think, rabbis? Say! Don’t say, “We are rabbis and we know everything.” Such a question is coming now. Say! Who is your Lord and what are His Divinely Attributes?

And I am asking the same question from Salafi `ulamas. I am asking also those no-mind Wahhabi people, who claim they know everything and who say, “Our knowledge is the highest knowledge.” Say! If you have highest knowledge, how was Allah Almighty addressing on the Day of Eternity in His Eternal Kingdom, and how was He speaking on the Day of Eternity and pre-Eternal? He addressed someone, (Mawlana Shaykh stands) a`ti kullu dhi haqqin haqqah, “Give to each one the rights he is due.” Is it true or not? (Mawlana Shaykh sits) That is an ocean! From one drop of that ocean the whole Creation will sink! What was Allah Almighty's order to the Seal of Prophets (s) on the Day of Promises? Say! And on which thing did we give our oaths to our Lord, our Creator, Allah Almighty? (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Allahu Akbaru 'l-Akbar! (Mawlana Shaykh sits)

Make it clear! The time is over, and the whole Judgment Day is coming to make everything clear. What was Allah Almighty's oath on the Day of Promises? To whom was He addressing? Which one can be able to stand up in His Divinely Presence and hear? It is impossible. Only that chosen one may, who is His real deputy from pre-Eternal up to Eternal, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits) Al-`ilmu bahrun, Knowledge Oceans are countless! And it is not something granted for the honor of the Seal of Prophets (s), from Allah Almighty's Endless Oceans? There are no limits for Allah Almighty's Knowledge Oceans! All oceans in existence can't be even the smallest spot beside Allah Almighty's Knowledge Oceans!

Say! For what are we coming there now? You must say, O you who are claiming, "We know everything." If you know everything, why are you hiding it, why are you not teaching people? And one who is nothing is asking such a question, that from whom was the Lord of Heavens taking His first oath? Allah Almighty is never going to be occupied with anything, hasha, impossible! As you know, laa yushghilahu shaanun `an shaan, "Nothing can occupy Allah Almighty's Divinely Sifaat, Attributes. No one can know about His attributes except Him, He knows. No one knows, it is impossible! But the Lord of Heavens asked to give honor to those creatures that He Almighty created with His Divinely Hands and gave them a model, that is dressed upon them from His Divinely Attributes to be suitable. More than this, He is addressing Sayyidina Muhammad (s), to be fully honored, so that he can convey Allah Almighty's addressing to them. Do you think that a majestic king is addressing his servant? It is not honor for a majestic king to speak to a servant, nor it is suitable for a servant mukhaatab, to speak directly with a king. Therefore, Allah Almighty used the Seal of Prophets (s), and all the prophets take from him. He was suitable, as the Lord of Heavens addressed His most beloved and glorified one on a level that no one else is able, or they will perish and disappear. That power is only granted to the Seal of Prophets (s)! No one can stand up while the Lord of Heavens addresses him, and His addressing is according to His most beloved servant's level! Yes, such things they are making to become more clear about the honor of the Seal of Prophets (s).

All Wahhabi peoples' understanding is on the lowest level and they are saying, "We are not accepting that one over our levels." And that is their wrong position, a wrong point in their beliefs, to look at the Seal of Prophets (s) as being like themselves or on the same level as them. That is their biggest mistake! Therefore, to all `ulamas, we are saying now, you must correct your beliefs. You can't say this about that one's levels. No one can understand his level because no one is granted what he is granted from his Lord!

O People! O `ulamas! We are asking, on the Day of Promises, was the Lord of Heavens sitting or standing? What do you think? And was He sitting on the Throne? Which throne can seat its Lord? How? He created the Holy Throne, and until He created it, where was He, standing up or waiting? Which builders were building it? Angels? And Who created angels? So many questions.

O Wahhabi people! You are no-mind people, not understanding anything. And Salafi `ulamas must try to understand a little bit more, as much as possible about the "Day of Promises". What happened on that day? How did it happen? And on that day what form were we in? We were there and He was taking our oath. What do you think? Which one was able to take an oath directly from their Lord? It can't be, or they will be taken away from existence and thrown in the endless oceans of the Heavens!

O People! All these things are to make a new understanding stage for people, because the Day of Resurrection is just approaching and we must be prepared with such heavenly powers to be able to stand up on Judgement Day in the Divine Presence, to be given something for the honor of the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammed (s). (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits)

O our `ulamas! There is something that we are not yet prepared to understand. It is shown as a project, but no one knows its realities. One question, Salafi `ulamas, I am not saying to Wahhabi people because they are no-mind people, never understanding anything; I am asking the ones who claim they are "Salafi `ulamas." What is Allah Almighty saying in the Holy Qur'an through His most beloved representative, and who was that one? Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh stands) He is ordering, "O My most special one! Don't ask anything from Me except, قُل رَّبِّ زِدْنِي عِلْمًا qul Rabbee zidnee `ilma, "Say, 'O my Lord! Increase me in knowledge.'" (20:114) (Mawlana Shaykh sits)

What do you think of people that are running after more gold, more oil, and more treasures? Put them in the WC center! The Lord of Heavens was ordering His most beloved one, Rabbee zidnee `ilma! Which kind of knowledge was He talking about, when His beloved was granted a complete knowledge of Creation? Everywhere, whatever has been created, the Seal of Prophets (s) was fully knowing it as a grant from his Lord. Yet, Allah Almighty said, “O My beloved one! Ask from Me more than I already gave you!”

And Prophet (s) said, “O my Lord! Give me more and more from Knowledge Oceans. I am thirsty, give me more and more , making me more suitable in front of Your Lordship, to give more and endless majesty and praising of Your Divine Presence, about which we only know something!”

But who may reach the real being of Allah Almighty's Glorified and Majestic Dominions? No one! (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Allahu Akbaru 'l-Akbar! Allahu Akbaru 'l-Akbar! Allahu Akbaru 'l-Akbar! Rabbee zidnee `ilma wa hilma, for the honor of Your most honoured one! (Mawlana Shaykh sits)
