Dastoor yaa RijaalAllah. (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Yaa `Azeezu, yaa Allah! Yaa Kareemu, yaa Allah! Laa ilaaha illa-Llah Muhammadun Rasoolullah `alayhi salaatullahi was salaamuh. Alfu salaat, alfu salaam `alayka wa `alaa aalika wa sahaabatika wa man tabi`aka bi ihsaani 'ila Yawmi 'd-Deen. Yaa Sayyidi 'l-Awwaleen wa ’l-`Akhireen. ishfa` lanaa! We are asking for your intercession, raghman, in spite of those Shaytan people wh are not accepting your honor in the Divinely Presence. You are Sayyidi 'l-Awwaleen wa ’l-`Akhireen! Raghman `ala anf shayateen. A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. (Mawlana Shaykh sits)
How are our attenders today? Very busy? We are fasting. When you are fasting, that means you must try to do as it is written on some ways, to make your speed down. That means, don't run too much on dunya; make it down, down, down. Give more and more care for your high spirituality, which is a grant from the Lord of Heavens, Who created you, me, and everyone.
Yes, it is Holy Ramadan. As it is well known through Salafi `ulamas, that the Salafiyoon, the real Salaaf as-Saalih were advising people from the Holy Prophet's advice, that if you are asking for your prayers to be accepted, then you must say, "It is my last prayer, and I have been granted two raka`at." How is that person collecting within himself, carrying from the outside to the inside, saying, “This is my last prayer. Allahu Akbar.”
O our Attenders! Those from common people and those who think they are special people, not from a common level, and who say, "Our level is Salafi `ulamas’ level," you must say, "This is my last Ramadan and this is my last fasting." When you are saying this, then you are taking much more care to be obedient with more perfection, because (you will say), “I will never know if next Ramadan I will be alive. This year I am on this planet and next year I may be under it. Therefore, in Holy Ramadan I must try to make a most perfect fasting, a most perfect praying, most kareem, to be the most generous, because next year I do not know if I am going to be on Earth or under it."
O our Attenders! They are making me address you. My teacher and heavenly commander, ameer, on this planet is giving me a chance to address all people on this planet, from east to west, from north to south., believers and unbelievers, Muslims, Christians, Jewish, anyone. You must hear, you must listen, and you must obey! Because no one can be certain that he is going to live next year and the reasons of death are countless. Don't say, "I take every care for my life." And what is that, my attenders? What are you saying? You are such clever ones, objecting, "O Shaykh! We have sigorta, life insurance, a grant from insurance companies. And we are now in safety as we have a guarantee for our lives." There are perhaps one-thousand insurance companies, and for what? They are cheating you, O heedless ones! Insurance companies are agents of Shaytan to cheat you by saying, "Don't worry! We have life insurance. Do everything you like and we are giving you a guarantee for your life." That is the top of foolishness for those who are making insurance for themselves or for their families or businesses! No!
O Muslims! You must believe in heavenly insurance, not from people on Earth who can't even give insurance for themselves. How are they giving it for others? But they are shaytanic companies or agents. They can't give for themselves a guarantee. How are they giving you a guarantee for your lives? There is only a guarantee from the Heavens! No one can give people a guarantee except a heavenly guarantee. Believe and be at rest. If you are not believing, there is no satisfaction for you. Yes, you may ride in a Rolls Royce or a BMW. What is that? They are giving you a guarantee and a BMW? What is that business?
“That Rolls Royce is for the shaykh,” one of our attenders said to me. "Rolls Royce is famous."
I am asking you, "For what?"
And answering, "Because in Rolls Royce, there is going to be a WC also; no need to come down and whissssh, whissssh (flushing noise)."
“Yes, you are true, O Shaykh! You know everything."
"I know something, not everything."
"It is true that it has everything in it to rest."
And I am saying that if he is going to do such a thing, better to use a tube, putting it outside with another car. And it is going to be like Rolls Royce, making a way for whissssh, and it is going out (flushing noise).
And then people life insurance. What is that? That they may live happily, "We are giving our guarantee, safety to the owner of this Rolls Royce, for everything." And they are claiming, "This person who is riding in the Rolls Royce may be in an unexpected accident." What happens? What is the benefit of your insurance? Can you give insurance that an accident is never coming if you are riding in your Rolls Royce, and you have life insurance?
O Attenders! Hear and think on it! Don't be members of the animals' world, not understanding such things. Why are you not coming and listening and understanding what is coming to you?! And your names are written as the members of the animal world. Come and accept membership of humanity, don’t run to be a member of the animal world! That is the difference. And Shaytan is cheating you. Ninety-nine percent of people are listening to him, believing in him, but not believing in heavenly messages. Heavenly messages are saying that at any time the Angel of Death (a) may come and take your soul and you are going to be a dead body, thrown down! Don’t be cheated by life insurance, no. Insurance may only be from heavenly ones to you.
Therefore, you must believe heavenly messages but you must be very careful, as Shaytan and its agents may always cheat you. Don’t be cheated! Thousands of heavenly ones are coming from Heavens to teach you about yourself and you are not listening to them. You are running after Shaytan and its agents, who are saying to you, "Do everything and give pleasure to yourself with all kinds of things. Don't worry about what some people are saying to you, 'Beware of the Day of Resurrection, beware of Judgment Day. One group of people are going to Paradise and another to hells.' Don't believe them!" But I am saying to Shaytan's people, “You may try to enjoy yourself with every insurance and not listen."
O my Attenders! Don’t be drunk when you are listening. You must take care of what words have been sent to you daily, coming with another type of declaration, because heavenly declarations are never ending because they are to remind and awaken you. Don't be drunk! Shaytan and shaytanic groups are always trying to make you drunk, and drunk ones are never understanding. Be awakened, then you'll be happy. If not, life will be difficult for you here and Hereafter.
O our Attenders! Come and listen and say, “Perhaps today it is the last day for you, O Shaykh, or it is the last day for me.” Say, and take an advice. If it is opposite to the mentality of Mankind, don't accept it. What heavenly ones are making me to address you, it is never losing its value, like a diamond. Diamonds and gold never lose their value, but your banknotes will finish. Shaytan is giving you papers. I am saying it is better to make it on cartons. Why are you using this paper (as currency); if you (throw it) it will finish. Use carton instead. They are not using carton to say "100 dollars" on it. Why are you not changing that? There is only the face of one person in America on it, there is also Abraham Lincoln; yes, put his face on it. Why are you keeping only one person? There is now Barack Hussein (Obama); you must put his photograph on it also. You can change it. Why are you not doing that?
Some say, "O Shaykh, it is paper. Whatever you are putting on it has no value. But they are cheating us. And all of us are idiots." And from east to west, from north to south, those shaytans, the heads of territories, are making all Mankind like flocks of birds or sheep, doing like this, and you must obey their order. No, change it and put on it. You may put on it (the image of) an elephant; it is big and better. Or you may put (another image) on it. "Why are you putting an elephant's photograph when I am the king of forests? Kingdom of jungles are on my name and you must put only my name on it. I am not accepting anyone else!" Yes, you may change it every time and you will be more happy. If you are putting aslaan, a lion's head on that paper, you may trust that it may be much more powerful. If you are putting instead of lion, a cat, no one will say, "What is that cat for?”
“We may put it! An elephant is too big and a lion is too violent. Eh, we may use a cat."
"Don't say a cat, say, 'a small lion.'"
They are making a claim in the Hague, in Human Rights Court. Why are there only human rights courts? You must also make an animals’ rights courts! A cat may come, making a case against Mankind, "Why they are not putting our photographs on dollars? They are not accepting lion's head. We must get our rights in the animals’ rights court!"
And they have! If they are doing this, they are saying, “O Shaykh! If they are making such a court, perhaps one-million people are going to ask for their rights, and from the animal world you may find millions asking for their rights, 'Why are lions eating ourselves? You must keep them away. You must feed lions in cages and we must be free to be free. Freedom, because democracy means freedom. We must ask to make animals’ democratic republic from east to west, from north to south. You like it? Because we are asking for our rights. Wake up! We are asking for rights.'"
O People! You must try to be a good one in the Divinely Court. Whoever is a good one in the Divinely Court, we may say that one is he who guarantees the rights of everyone and accepts everyone's rights. That one is a true one, rewarded in the Divine Presence, and others are going to be zhaalim, oppressors.
O Mankind! Come and give everyone's rights! What is the Hague, the world court? So weak. You are asking so powerful one to give everyone their rights because the Lord of Heavens Who is creating, granted to everything a right and everyone must keep the rights of others. If not, they are going to be punished here and Hereafter. May Allah forgive us.
It is Holy Ramadan and perhaps our attenders are fasting. I don’t think so much, but they are saying they are fasting. Fast! If you are not fasting, I don’t know if you are going to live tomorrow or if you are going to be underground.
Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, `Azeez Allah!
Forgive us, O our Lord, for the honor of the most honored one, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits)
O our Salafi `ulamas! Don’t blame me that I am making people take attention. You may do this also when you are addressing people, making them wake up and listen. May Allah forgive us for the honor of this holy month. Yaa Allah! SubhaanAllah! Send us a heavenly sultan to give rights for everyone! We are asking for a sultan from the Heavens, not from Earth.
