Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Subhaan Allah

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Sultaan Allah

Zidhu yaa Rabbee `izzan wa sharafan nooran wa surooran, sultaanan wa ridwaana. Thumma salaamu `alaykum yaa `ibaadAllah as-Saaliheen. Tub `alayna yaa Rabbana. Give Your forgiveness, we are weak servants. Give from Your Love Oceans to make your weak servants stand up for Your Glorifying! (Mawlana Shaykh sits)

Shukr yaa Rabbee, shukr yaa Rabbee, shukr yaa Rabbee! Countless thanks, countless praise is for You from pre-Eternal up to Eternal, for Glorifying to You. You are Glorifying. It is not coming from anyone, You are Glorifying Yourself.

O our Teachers! You must give a little bit of understanding! And before anything comes of understanding, you must say, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem.

O People! Run away from Shaytan and say a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. (Mawlana Shaykh stands), Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem, Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem, Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem! It gives us new life, new power, new light! (Mawlana Shaykh sits)

Thumma 's-salaam `alayka yaa Saahib az-Zamaan, and our salutes to the Qutbu 'l-Mutasarrif of this dunya, who is sheltering believers, and who is protector of Allah Almighty's servants. Yes. And our salutes to every holy one. Who is a holy one? Do you know, our Attenders? You don't know! And I am also asking for more vision and knowledge about holy ones, holy people.

O our Attenders! As-salaamu `alaykum. Where are you? What are you thinking? Are you thinking about dunya? Whoever is thinking about dunya, those thoughts are dirty. Don't cover your understanding with dirtiness, but try to reach a clean understanding. That understanding cleans your physical being and gives power to your spiritual being. Cleanliness is the most important thing for the life of Man on this planet. The first obligation is cleanliness. You must be clean in order to understand. If you are not clean, you will never understand. Be clean and then you may understand. But as long as people are running after the dirty life on this planet, they will never reach a pure understanding, and their level will be under that of animals. How can that be?

O Salafi `ulamas! It must be! What do you understand of what Allah is saying in the Holy Qur'an? (Mawlana Shaykh stands) He is saying and addressing some, Ast`eedhu billah:

أُوْلَـئِكَ كَالأَنْعَامِ بَلْ هُمْ أَضَلُّ

oolaa'ika ka'l-an`am bal hum addal

They are like cattle, nay, even lower. (Al-A'raaf 7:179)

(Mawlana Shaykh sits)

Do you understand this, or are you never thinking about it? Three or four holy words in one holy verse is for our understanding. If it were not intended for us to take a heavenly understanding, then He would never send a holy verse. If a person is not understanding, he is mahroom, deprived, which means he is putting a barrier between himself and his target. Therefore, take away that barrier between yourself and the level at which you may understand something. Why does Allah Almighty say, Ast`eedhu billah oolaa'ika ka'l-an`am bal hum addal? Who are they? Salafi `ulamas, say! Are you accepting this description for yourselves? Wahhabi `ulamas, are you accepting that level? Say! Holy Qur'an is for all time, it is not changing, but your understanding will be changed! What is Allah Almighty's khitaab, addressing, "oolaaika?" Who are they? Say! You say you are `ulamas. That holy verse is addressed to someone, "oolaa'ika." Who are they? Make it clear to your people. Why are you not making it clear?

Ooolaa'ika ka'l-an`am, those who live only to eat and drink and for a sexual life; their level is the level of an`am, animals. They are like zoo people! That holy address is making a distinction between humanity and the animals' world. Of Mankind, some are coming to the level of humanity. humanity gives honor to people. But to be on the level of animals is not honor. You are leaving what is granted to you from heavenly honor and following your egoistic demands. Today ninety-nine percent of people are running after their animalistic desires, kicking away humanity, and humanity is what gives honor to Mankind. Who are coming to their human side have been honored; who are coming to their animal side, there is no honor for them.

A horse may be among animals, it is perhaps on 'top style'. People are running after dogs, but dogs haven't been granted any honor. Everyone likes horses more than other animals, although there are so many kinds of animals. But among animals, the one, yuthnee `alayhi, most praised and given respect, given a speciality and high rank in the animals' world, is the horse. Why? The horse carries sultans, and riding on it are emperors and noble, people. Do you ever see a king riding on a donkey? Do you see that? Never. There is an honor granted to horses, but they belong to animals' world. They can't live in the majestic halls of the majestic king; the last point for them is the entrance of a huge palace. They can't be inside, only up to the entrance.

I was wishing or asking that people keep horses instead of dogs. The horse is a noble animal; the dog is at the lowest level. And I am sorry to say that most people like to be on the level of dogs. I am sorry that they are making themselves on the level of dogs, a dirty animal. A horse gives a person ha’ya, a good appearance, and azamah, it gives glory. Therefore, glorious ones, kings, emperors and sultans, are always using horses. Now people left the high scale, the heavenly grant for them to keep horses. They left that level; they are coming down and keeping cars, cars, cars. Cars are never giving honor to people. But people now, their scales are wrong. Shaytan is cheating people and saying, "Leave horses and come to take cars." Nobility like that of horses was never granted to any other animal. The lion is never said to be a "noble lion." For a tiger, they are never going to say, "noble tiger" and the donkey is never going to be a "noble donkey." But Shaytan turns people’s mentality upside down.

O People! Come and try to be noble ones here and Hereafter. There is one holy hadith that our `ulamas know. You are `ulamas, so why aren't you advising mulook to ride on horses? Why? You must say, "O Jalaalatuh (Majesty), you must use a noble animal that comes from Paradise." Yes. There is no other animal inside but the horse. That is an honor that is granted to Mankind. Why aren't you saying? Tell the truth! But you are not saying it because your mentality is running after WC cars. You are riding in such a thing. And you `ulamas, you must also ride on that most noble animal of the animals' world. But I am sorry to say again that today’s no-mind people, bad-characteristic people are only using horses for gambling. They are cheating people's mentalities. Horses were not created for gambling!

O People! Use your minds and try to understand something good! O Salafi `ulamas, why aren’t you saying this to your people? Why aren’t you giving advice to mulook, kings, "O our Majesty, you must ride on a horse; it is much more ihtishaam, honor, and it looks much more majestic when you are riding on horses. And a horse is going like this (Mawlana Shaykh moves up and down) That is very good, very good. Why are you leaving sunnatu 'n-mashoora (famous sunnah)?"

O our Salafi `ulamas! What was the Seal of Prophets saying? (Mawlana Shaykh stands)

من ترك سنتي لم ينل شفاعتي

Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. Man taraka sunnatee lan yanal shafa`atee

Who leaves my sunnah, my intercession will not reach them.

فمن رغب عن سنتي فليس مني

Ma raghaba `an sunnatee fa laysa minnee

Who leaves my sunnah is not from me.

True or not? Where are you, Wahhabi people? Why aren't you riding on horses? All of you are riding in BMWs or Rolls Royce. Why are you doing that? That is hadeeth an-nabi. But they are saying, "I haven’t enough money to buy a horse. If I buy a horse, those bad governments are not making a place on the streets for them. They are making car stations." (Mawlana Shaykh sits)

This is from the barakah of Holy Ramadan. Say to his His Majesty, King Abdullah, may Allah support him, "Stop hiding yourself! Go out on horses, with your swords also. That is sultanate, kingdom, that is a royal show. Use it!" His Majesty, King of Hijaz, should ride on a horse and go out with flags, with so many of his soldiers with him, all on horses. That gives him honor, and if he leaves the sunnah, there is a threat. Keep horses, O mulook! Sultan Qabus, Sultan Oman, Sultan Qatar, Sultan Salateen Emirates, Salateen Sultan of so many Arab territories. Leave the automobile! When you are coming down they will kiss your hands, saying, "O our kings, use cars. Leave that horse." No! Say to them you use horses to make economical justice for all people. They may be happy and israaf, waste will end, finishing the world-wide economic crisis. It will come down. One command, one sunnah, if all nations followed it, there would be no more worries for them and the economic crisis will finish. That is: الدين نصيحةad-deenu naseeha, "Religion is advice." Why aren't you saying this to them?

O Salafi `ulamas! Is it wrong what we are saying? What do you think? Wahhabi people are not letting you ride on horses. Leave Wahhabis and ride your horses! When you are riding on horses from the palace, people are saying, "Mashaa-Allah! Happiness for our sultan, long life, happy life and majestic life for our sultan." Yes sir, they are saying something for people to wake up, and that is one sunnah. They are arranging the whole world with one sunnah!

And also, leave those dogs, those dirty ones, leave them and look after poor people. If not, there may come a never-known disease to dogs that they pass to their owners and millions of people may die! Such a sign has just appeared on the Heavenly Tablets, that from dogs may come such a dirty illness for which no one can find its cure. Don't keep dogs, keep horses! That is today's declaration for all nations! Believers or unbelievers, followers of heavenly orders or followers of Shaytan, keep what has been ordered. That is a warning coming to you. Perhaps something more is coming. Those floods are a sign of heavenly anger. If you are not coming to understand, if you are not coming to the right way of being a member of human nature, then a dirty illness will come from dogs to people and there will be no cure for them.

May Allah forgive us. Hear and obey. If not, you know what may happen.


(44 minutes) Mashaa-Allah, they are taking care. Alhamdulillah, alhamdulillah, that is an important declaration for all nations. They are accepting this in the Old Testament, New Testament, and Holy Qur'an. May Allah forgive us.

(Mawlana Shaykh prays two raka`at Salaat ash-Shukr.)

Subhaan Allah! Subhaan Allah!
