(Mawlana Shaykh stands) Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, laa ilaaha illa-Llah. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, wa lillahi 'l-hamd! Alfu salaat, alfu salaam `alaa Sayyidi 'l-Awwaleen wa ’l-Akhireen, Sayyidina Muhhamadan, habeebi Rabbi ‘l-`Alameen, wa `alaa sai anbiya wa ‘l-mursaleen wal-hamdulillahi Rabbi ‘l-`Alameen. (Mawlana Shaykh sits)
O Our Attenders! Dastoor yaa Sayyidi, yaa Sultan al-Awliya. Madad, yaa `ibaadAllahi ‘s-saaliheen. It is such a big grant from Allah Almighty to be His servant. We are saying, “A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem.” Shaytan never likes people to be servants of their Lord, their Creator. Tawbah yaa Rabbi! We are asking forgiveness, because mostly we follow Shaytan and what he calls us to.
Allah Almighty asks obedience from us and He calls Mankind, His servants, to obedience, saying, “O My servants! Try to be My servants and obedient ones.” But people are leaving that, and Shaytan says, "Don't listen." Shaytan calls people to disobedience because he is the first disobedient one among all Creation and he likes people to be disobedient, like him. Disobedience makes people fall into troubles and suffering. When people suffer, kill each other and make trouble and crises, Shaytan says, "O! I am so happy."
O People! Our attenders from east to west, from north to south, listen and obey! Our Lord is calling us to be obedient ones. The divine call from Heavens is, "O My servants! Listen to the holy call from Heavens and you will be happy here and Hereafter; if not, you will be in black holes." People are running to black holes with their bad deeds, and they will never come out.
There are also brilliant ways; they are not holes, but brilliant running roads. You may continue on those enlightened ways and be happy forever and enjoy every step you take! When you finish this life on that way, you will reach Unknown Dominions that Allah Almighty created for His servants. No one knows what is in them, except for our Creator. But now people follow Shaytan and everywhere they find troubles, sufferings and never-ending crises and miseries.
O People! Use your minds; don't listen to Shaytan and shaytanic ways, because a bad future is coming and the worst is coming on them. They must not think that if a person dies for any reason, they are finished and only become dust, no longer in existence. That is a shaytanic advice for people to say, “Don't believe there is another world or another life. Don’t listen! When you die everything is finished."
That is kufr, to refuse what the prophets are bringing, to deny everything continues after death. Allah (swt) sent 124,000 prophet to say, “O People! You are in this life for a short time, but after that you will find an endless Eternity.” You will find Eternity in enlightened worlds if the Lord of Heavens is happy with you, but He will grant another Eternity to those who do not believe, who say, “Our lives only last up to the graveyard and afterwards there is nothing.” If that is so, why do you have graves and make them like that? I am sorry to say that Shaytan is cheating so many people by saying, “O people! When you die everything is finished, so burn your physical beings to ashes (cremation).”
Now it is the fashion for people to state in their will that when they die they should be cremated. Why? What prophet says you should burn your dead bodies and not bury them? From the beginning up until today they have said, "Bury your dead bodies, because there is something after death." But now people are listening to Shaytan, not to heavenly declarations.
May Allah (swt) forgive us and send us someone who can arrange the lives of Mankind. We are in need of change, as now you can't find a mindful arrangement to arrange a good life for you. No! From east to west, from north to south, people are in endless troubles. Every year we are asking, "O our Lord, send us someone from Your mukhlis, sincere servants, to teach people how we must deal with our Creator." If not, bad news will come from the east, worse news from the west, the north and south, from all directions. We must think on it.
تفكر ساعة خير من عبادة سبعين سنة
tafakarru sa`atun khayrun min `ibaadati saba`een sannah.
To remember Allah (swt) (contemplate or meditate) for one hour is better than seventy years of worship.
“Dunya” refers to what we look at and see. Don't use your minds for dunya; you must think about something that will be for everyone in the future, such as, what will exist after death? You must use your minds for that purpose; as long as you are thinking about it an opening will come, but if you are not thinking about it, only a thick darkness will come on everything and you will not see anything.
We ask that Allah (swt) (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits) will send us from His servants to teach us about where we are going and how we must deal with the holy orders from Heavens. We are asking day and night, “O our Lord! Send us from Your good servants to teach us and show us how we can save ourselves from bad ideas and following Shaytan, and how to deal with our Creator, Allah Almighty.” If not, now we are surrounded from every direction.
Allah Almighty is saying, “Aslim! O My servant, surrender to My orders. If not, this plane in which you exist will get tighter and tighter, will take you to black holes and it will not open. Aslim taslam! Surrender to Me and I will open for you here and Hereafter!” May Allah forgive us.
O People! That Angel of Death is coming nearer to everyone. Prepare yourself to have a brilliant face when you leave this life and you reach the Divine Presence. O our Lord, forgive us for the sake of Your beloved servant, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits) Save us from shaytanic ways and show us good ways. Forgive us! We are expecting Your forgiveness and Your endless Mercy Oceans for Eternal Life, yaa Rabbi ‘l-`Alameen... habeebika Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits)
