Dastoor yaa Sayyidee, madad yaa Sultan al-Awliya. (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) Laa ilaaha illa-Llah. Laa ilaaha illa-Llah. Laa ilaaha illa-Llah Muhammadun Rasoolullah! Alfu salaat, alfu salaam `alayka wa `ala aalika yaa Sayyidi 'l-awwaleen wa 'l-aakhireen. Zidhu yaa Rabbee `izzan wa sharafan wa nooran wa surooran wa ridwaanan wa sultaana. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)
As-salamu `alaykum, Our Attenders! And we are beginning by saying, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem.. O our Lord, grant us from your heavenly support to fight against Shaytan and its followers! Yes, all `ulamas through east and west, including Christian's learned people, including Jewish learned people, what is our mission? We must know it. Dastoor, yaa Sultan 'l-Awliya, madad!
A question; what are you teaching people? Christians or Jewish people, and Islamic `ulamas, including Salafia `ulamas, a question: what you are teaching people? What was the mission of Jesus Christ? His followers were saying, “our teacher.” People are running to prophets for what? For learning and then knowing and then understanding, and then they are standing up. What is their mission? And they are standing up and they are trying to fulfill their missions.
This addressing is from east to west, from north to south. I’m a weak person. I am asking in front of all nations to holy people, from Christianity and Judaism, and I am asking Muslim authorities for teaching people, I am asking, what was the teachings of prophets to people? Just making it clear, the Seal of Prophets (s), (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits) and saying one word, that he has been sent to teach people, mu`allimun-naasu 'l-khayr (goodness)!
This one word including all teachings from all prophets. Allah Almighty is sending 124,000 prophets, all of them were calling people and saying, “O my Lord’s servants, come to me! Come to me! And listen to me! And try to understand me! O People, I am coming to you to teach you al-khayr, goodness. What is opposite of goodness? Badness." That means on this world people are learning and practicing good things and some of the people are not trying to learn and they are doing their worst badness, and asking to follow badness. What is goodness, al-khayr? Every kind from goodness, Man must know, because Man is born not knowing anything and his parents are teaching him something first.
O People, our Attenders! Look to me and try to keep through your minds, it is our whole adab, good manners. When a new child growing up and beginning to ask to say something, our good manners is to say to that baby, say “Al-Lah, Al-Lah, Al-Lah.” It is the top point of khayr to teach that new baby to open his mouth and to speak first and to learn to say “Al-Lah.” And through our traditional knowledge, if a person from the beginning must go on it, when you are teaching a small one to say, "Al-Lah." The last moment that one is passing away and he stands to say, "Al-Lah, Al-Lah, Al- ..."(draws his last breath). The opening (of his life) and finishing (death) is going to be on saying, "Al-Lah, Al-Lah.” From Allah (swt) we come and to Him is our return. Salafi `ulamas, say, is this baatil? الدين نصيحة Ad-deenu naseeha, "Religion is advice." is making me to sit down here and to speak to people, to advise to people. If anything is wrong, say to me that, “You are wrong one.” I am sitting here emptying that heavenly madad, support, making me to be full for addressing.
O Salafi `ulamas! There is some new instruments like a finger, there is a part (coughs) and they are saying to me that this small-like finger part, they may contain perhaps 20 hours speaking or more? Much more. Yes. SubhaanAllahu Mu`alim (salawat) very important point they are giving sometimes. That just granted to common people and there is an important reality. What is that, I am asking to `ulamas?
O People! On the Day of Promising, Allah Almighty (swt) jala jalaalahu subhaanAllah, sultaan Allah. (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.) addressing to our real beings, not this body, but to our real beings. It is beyond our ruh, souls, zarrah, atoms, and beyond atoms there is another reality that only this knowledge you can find through heavenly people. Allah Almighty was addressing, أَلَسْتُ بِرَبِّكُمْ alastu bi rabbikum! “O My creatures from Mankind! Are you accepting Me as your Lord and Creator?” قَالُواْ بَلَى qaaloo bala, "They said, 'Yes, O our Lord!'" (7:172)
"You are our Lord and You are our Creator." This part of the holy verse is what we are understanding, three, four words. But the Lord’s addressing, kalaamullah, (Allah's Divine Words), is from pre-Eternal up to Eternal, and through that question, believe that countless secret Knowledge Oceans appeared! Allah Almighty said, alastu bi rabbikum, all the souls answered, qaaloo bala, admitting His lordship and that they are His servants. Through that addressing, oceans of knowledge come. Therefore, anbiya (prophets) are taking knowledge from that divinely addressing. Which oceans are coming through alastu bi rabbikum? Oceans that you can’t find a shore or a bigness for it!
Therefore, when He Almighty was addressing, don’t think that addressing should be for everyone same addressing, the same zahir, appearance. It is the same, but don’t think that His addressing to prophets is the same as to their followers. There is a general addressing for all, but everyone is taking from that ocean what is for them, private knowledge from endless oceans, and through that they are coming to say, mu`allimu nassu 'l-khayr. That holy word that Seal of Prophets (s) declared to nations, he knows the meaning of khayr, goodness, he knows it is such an ocean and he is saying, “I am coming to teach people goodness.” And, what is goodness? One, two three, four, five, six, seven; how many goodnesses? There are five hundred goodnesses that the Seal of Prophets (s) was saying to his nation. Teaching them every kind of goodness. The Seal of Prophets (s) (Mawlana Shaykh stands) just taught them (Mawlana Shaykh sits) and others, every kind, that it is mentioned and just they have been taught to his nation.
First of them, what is? First, the beginning of khayr is to say, Allahu Rabbee, Allahu Rabbee, Allahu Rabbee! khalaqani razaqani ahjani amatani thumma yuhyini. The first of khayr, goodness is to know Who created him or her, they must learn.
All `ulamas, what you are saying every Jumu`ah on minbars? Why are you not saying such things? So many people are using the minbar to speak on political aspects, it is haraam! `Ulamas can’t speak on political subjects. You are only authorized to teach people al-khayr, goodness. That is your mission. If you are going, giving that direction and you are going like this, left or right, you are getting out from Siraat al-Mustaqeem. Therefore Allah Almighty, ordering us everyday to stop and ask from His Majestic and most glorious existence, “O our Lord, give me Siraat al-Mustaqeem.” Who is going through that siraat just direct way, they are falling into traps of Shaytan.
Therefore, O People! O `ulamas from Muslim world, or Christian world `ulamas and Jewish nations `ulamas, you must say what we are saying now! It is a heavenly announcement for everyone from Mankind that they will know what is rightness! What is goodness, top point of goodness and rightness that people must learn this. Then they may walk on it, or they are coming down, cant move, can't do anything that people may say to them, "capital to you," or when they are passing through Judgment Day in the Divine Presence for Divine Judgment, all of them will be thrown away!
O Holy People for Christianity, from Judaism, and our `ulamas! You must say from early morning up to evening as the command of the Lord of Heavens, wa dhakkir, because when you are saying it you may keep your ways in safety, coming in Divine Presence and shining.
O People! I am addressing to learned people tonight, according to inspiration coming to me from heavenly ones, I am addressing to you. Try to keep it and run after goodness, to do goodness and try to make badness less, less, less, until you are leaving it. When you leave badness it means you are leaving Shaytan. When you try to complete goodness, it means you are approaching Seal of Prophets (s). (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.)
(Mawlana Shaykh speaks to Shaykh Hisham Effendi on the phone.)
Shaykh Hisham: Mawlana's suhbat is being translated into 12 languages on the fly and this is a total now of 300 suhbahs translated.
Mawlana Shaykh Nazim: That is the result of madad of awliya and they want to erase kufr and establish imaan. And there is a hadith, “Whoever is sincere to Allah for 40 days, then fountains of wisdom will spring from his heart.” There are oceans coming and never ending.
