Dastoor yaa Sayyidee. (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) Laa ilaaha illa-Llah, laa ilaaha illa-Llah, laa ilaaha illa-Llah Sayyidina wa Nabiyina Muhammadun Rasoolullah (s), `alayhi afdalu salaatu was salaam.... (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)
As-salaamu `alaykum, attenders! As-salaamu `alaykum, O Muslim world! As-salaamu `alaykum, O Ahlu ’l-Kitaab, Book-Given People, (Christians and Jews) who are asking to know the ways of heavens and to follow those ways until they reach in the heavens to their Lord's Divine Presence!
Madad, yaa Sultanu 'l-Awliyaa, dastoor. We are also asking support from the responsible one for Mankind on this planet from east to west, north to south, who is controlling everyone from human nature. Those who are under the umbrella of the Children of Adam, and who have been honored to be deputies on this Earth, and they have given their oath in the Divine Presence of Allah Almighty, subhaanahu wa ta`ala! Give respect and take respect; if not giving respect, you will never be given respect. That is a heavenly scale declared from the first prophet up to the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s).
And we are saying, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. We know that one more day of our lives has passed away and our calendars are only for one year, but everyone has a different calendar, every one from Mankind has a private calendar that is beginning from their birth. The first breath is the first page for that new one. SubhaanAllah, endless glory is for our Lord Almighty, Allah. Allah, Allah. He is so high, no one knows the Real Being of the Lord of Heavens; it is impossible. No one knows about pre-Eternal and no one knows about Eternity or Eternal point, Allah (swt)! Absolute Greatness and Absolute Glory is for the Lord of Heavens; we are only saying one, two, or three words for explaining Allah Almighty’s glory. O `ulamas from Ahlu ’s-Sunnah wa’l-Jama`ah, and `ulamas who claim they are Salafi `ulamas, and also who claim they are Shi`a `ulamas! It is your responsibility to give much more knowledge about the Creator, Allah Almighty! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.)
Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar! We are saying all praising, all honor, all greatness, all glory, and all majesty for our Lord, Almighty Allah. Yes, it is true, every one of the `ulamas may say this. Common people may say less than these five unexpected titles. We are saying only five, or may be six or seven, but O `ulamas, you must know about the Absolute Glory, Absolute Honor, Absolute Praising, Absolute Greatness, and Absolute Majesty of Allah Almighty! But really all numbers, if we use them for bringing something about His Greatness, are never going to be enough, whether they are five or whether they are endless. Endless titles we may use for creatures, but for our Lord's Divinely Attributes they are countless! Also, according to each Divinely Attributes there are Holy Names that belong to each divine or holy Attribute of Allah Almighty, from His Absolute Being, His Absolute Essence.
How many heavens are there? Every heaven, according to the levels of the heavens, has His Essence Attributes. And you can't count the levels of heavens. They have been sent according to our understanding or capacity, to be known that there are seven heavens. Are there no eight heavens, or no ten heavens? Is there a limit? His Existence is Unlimited, therefore everything that belongs to Him must be never-ending! Allahu Akbar! Allahu akbar!
O People! Everyone in existence is glorifying their Lord, their Creator, but don't think that everyone’s glorification is the same! SubhaanAllah! Allah Almighty created for this world billions, trillions, or quadrillions of dharrah, atoms.
O `Ulamas! What is your opinion about those atoms? "Dharrah" is something else. For making an understanding, we are saying atoms from the knowledge of the Seal of Prophets (s) are reaching to his inheritors, so that nothing in existence from Creation is without a name, everything has a special name. Ha! Another ajaa`ib, astonishing news, that is reaching us from Risaalat ul-Mutbaqah, the Absolute Messenger, the Last Messenger, Sayyidi 'l-Awwaleen wa 'l-Akhireen, reaching a secret knowledge that some awliyaa have been granted, a secret, that no atom can be in existence if there is not written on it a Holy Name of the Lord of Heavens! Allahu akbar!
Who created that atom has ordered to be written on every atom one of His Holy Names! That is ajaa`ib, strange. There can't be an atom if there is not written on it one Holy Name of its Creator. That is the `azaamat, greatness of Allah Almighty! Billions and trillions of atoms can't be in existence if it is not written on them one Holy Name of their Creator. Allahu Akbar!
What is your knowledge, O Salafi `ulamas? What are you knowing? For what did the Holy Qur’an come? Why is it begining after Fatihah? Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. Alif. Laam. Meem. Say, if you are understanding! That gives you heavenly lights that are cannot be extinguished. Say! If you are not knowing, try to learn; (with knowledge you will know) you can't make an objection on this point. Because Allah Almighty is azaaliyun, abaadiyun, existing from pre-Eternal up to Eternal, and He has Absolute Eternity. Allahu akbar! Allahu akbar! Try to make people's understanding wider, make it much more enlightened. You must remember the holy hadith of Rasoolullah (s), saying you must learn to use holy knowledge from the Seal of Prophets (s). He was saying, Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem:
قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : من حسن إسلام المرء ترك ما لا يعنيه
min husn islam al-mara tark maa laa ya`neeh.
You are occupying yourself with nonsense. This is a hadith, min husn islam al-mara tark maa laa ya`neeh. A perfect believer is the one who tries to leave everything that never gives him honor, here or Hereafter.
There are some issues or studies that are never giving you honor here or Hereafter. Leave arguments and come. People asking, “Who is our Lord?” You must not be maghloob (defeated) by shaytanic arguments; leave that! One of the nonsense theories that Shaytan is whispering to some heedless people is to say that the beginning of this Creation, this universe, began from one atom that just exploded and then came everything (Big Bang Theory). Most dirty, unacceptable, heedless, and ignorant people run after that and say, “Yes!” Why are you not refusing? Even such foolish theories are coming and reaching to Haramayn Sharifayn (the two harams in Mecca and Madinah), Damascus, Baghdad, Egypt, or reaching to east to west and finding acceptance. Why? You must bombard such foolish ideas that some of Shaytan’s representatives are throwing into no-mind peoples’ heads and making such big sound through east and west, finding acceptance. And we have such a strong one, a strong heavenly knowledge, through Prophet's (s) knowledge, and you are not defending. They only know how to say, "We are Salafi `ulamas," "We are Azhari `ulamas," and from Shi'a `ulamas saying, "We are 'Hujjatullah' or 'Ayatullah,' they say that they are knowing everything. What you are knowing? Why you are not defending our Lord's addressing and declarations in holy book, destroying everything against Holy Qur’an and trying to destroy everything against Old Testament and New Testament!
Their real ones, why are you not defending, O His Holiness, the Pope, O Your Holiness, Jewish Chief Rabbi? Why are you not stopping that person who brings such foolish ideas to the minds of people? Why are you not destroying these ideas and spitting on Shaytan? Ptuu! Why are you not saying? What are you doing? You only know how to attack on such a weak servant. You only know to make arguments with such a weak person. I may be weak, but the declaration that comes to my heart is not weak.
May Allah forgive me, and forgive you, and guide us to the real way of the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)!
I am asking you, O `ulamas, for the sake of the honor of the Seal of Prophets (s), to write an objection on these words they are making me speak as an address to all the people. I am asking this from all learned people and authorities that are saying they are authorities in Islam, in Christianity, and Judaism, to write and say that this weak servant is speaking wrong, and the next day they may finish! Beware! This weakest servant is only trying to give something for the understanding of our Lord's Greatness! It is impossible to understand, but according to our understanding level they are making me speak.
May Allah forgive me and forgive you.
