Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem. (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) Laa ilaaha illa-Llah, laa ilaaha illa-Llah, laa ilaaha illa-Llah Muhammadun Rasoolullah `alayhi 's-salaatullah wa salaamahu `alayh, wa 's-salaat wa 's-salaamu `alayka yaa sayyid al-awwaleen wa 'l-aakhireen, wa `alaa jamee`il anbiyaa-i wa 'l-mursaleen, wa `ibaadallahi 's-saaliheen. A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani ‘r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem. Yaa Rabbana! Yaa Rabbi 'ghfir wa 'rham wa anta khayru 'r-raahimeen. W 'aslih shaanana wa shaan al-muslimeen, w 'ansurnaa `ala 'l-qawmi 'l-kaafireen bi-jaahi nabbiyyika 'l-kareem. (Mawlana Shaykh sits)
Thumma 's-salaamu `alayka yaa Sayyidee, yaa Qutb al-Mutasarrif. Wa `alaa jamee`i ashaabun nawba wa 's-salaamu `alaykum yaa Rijaalallah maa bayna 'l-mashaariq wa 'l-maghaarib, mutasarrifi fee umooru 'l-dunya wa maa feehaa.
O our Sultan al-Awliya! We are knowing nothing and we are asking to know and to learn, at least to be as the Seal of Prophets (s) was saying; (Mawlana Shaykh stands) man tashabbaha bi qawmin fa-huwa minhum, “Whoever imitates a group of people is from them.” (Mawlana Shaykh sits)
O Salaafiyoon! As-salaamu `alaykum. You know Arabic. That is kalaamu 'n-Nabi, holy words of the Seal of Prophets (s), that he was never speaking through himself, but it is:
إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا وَحْيٌ يُوحَى
In huwa illa wahyun yoohaa.
It is not except revelation revealed to him (53:4)
Ta`arif `arabiyy, tifhamoo? So many Shaytan people asking to spread disease in Islam, to make it down and to raise their false maktab, schools. You must give value to the holy words of that holy one. Really he is holiest one, most honored one, most glorified one, most praised one and most majestic one through Creation! He is not accepting Jahannam and their ways. Raghman `alaa anfihim, "In spite of their wills," whom they are so greedy about the Seal of Prophets (s)
They are in the level of shaytans, whom they are not respecting the Seal of Prophets (s) Their levels are of afreet, Shaytan's devils. `Ayb alayhum, Shame on them! If anyone gives his respect to the Seal of Prophets (s), some greedy ones are going to explode due to their bad beings. Because Shaytan injects its poisonous serum into them and then they are going to be greedy about everything that is praising the Seal of Prophets (s). Allah Almighty is praising him, saying: (Mawlana Shaykh stands)
إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا صَلُّوا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا
inn Allaha wa malaa`ikaatuhu yussalloona `ala 'n-Nabi, yaa ayyuha alladheena aamanoo salloo `alayhi was-sallimoo tasleemah.
Allah and His angels send blessings on the Prophet: O ye that believe! Send ye blessings on him, and salute him with all respect. (33:56)
O Salaafiyoon! O Wahhabiyyoon! Where are you? What does it mean? Are you not Muslim? Not understanding what is the meaning of, inn Allaha wa malaa`ikaatuhu yussalloona `ala 'n-Nabi? (Mawlana Shaykh sits) What is that foolishness, trying to destroy aqa`id al-Islam, Islamic beliefs. And Islamic beliefs just based on t`azheemu 'n-Nabi. Base of Islamic beliefs is to give most high respects to the Seal of Prophets (s) that he has been granted such an honor that no one has been granted. And his existence is from pre-Eternal up to Eternal. Raghman `alaa anf wahhabiyyeen wa salafiyeen, “Despite Wahhabis and Salaafis,” and those who are following their ways! Our religion is just based on praising and respecting that one who is the real deputy for the Lord of Heavens from pre-Eternal up to Eternal.
A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani ‘r-rajim. I'm running from Shaytan's trips. Running to Allah Almighty, but really we can't do that, but we are running to some praised servants that they are beings who are, yanoob, representing. We are running to them for a respect to the Seal of Prophets (s), because our respects are so useless in front of the Lord of Heavens, that He is granting His Divinely respect. What is our respect? What is it? We are nothing! Whole Creation's respect is going to be nothing besides the respect of Allah jalla jalaalahu. He Almighty is praising him. What is our praising?! You may say that the value of our praising may be the value of one atom, one dharrah, besides the atoms of the whole Creation. At least that is a description for making qiyaas, comparison between the Lord of Heaven's praising and our praising. And even if we praise for billions, trillions or quadrillions of years, but besides our Lord's praising, it is nothing! But those greedy people, are always saying that they have a tariqah but they are liars! They have tariqah but their tariqah is Tariqatu 'sh-Shaytaniyya, “Satan’s Way.” Our tariqah is Tariqatu Muhammadiyya, “Muhammad’s Way," sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam.
Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar `alaa man takabbara wa tajabbara `ala Habeeb-Allah (s), “Allah is greater than the proud ones and the tyrants.”
They are saying, "Bid`a, shirk, haraam yaa shaykh! How is shaykh saying 'As-salatu wa-ssalamu `alayka' and he (Prophet) is dead one?" Pthuuh!! `Alaykum `ala `aqeeda taba`akum!", “ Pthuuh on you, and the beliefs that you follow!”
Whom they are fee ghaayatu 'l-jahal, they are sinking in the biggest ignorance and darkness territories. Give more praising and laa maani`, Allah Almighty is going to be so pleased if anyone is praising His most praised one, the real deputy for Him Almighty. Yes. Look, O Salafiyoon and Wahhabi people. They are so greedy, always towards the t`azheem, glorifying of the Seal of Prophets (s) Why? Which harming will come to you if the praising for the Seal of Prophets (s) will be getting more and more? And you are in existence for his honor. T`azheemu 'n-Nabi, glorifying of the Seal of Prophets (s) and praising; and he is majestic! He is majestic! No one is possible to understand adnaa, the least understanding for the Seal of Prophets' (s) praising and glorifying from Allah Almighty. Allahu Akbar! SubhaanAllah! Raghman `alaa anf Salafiyoon (in spite of the Salafis) and Wahhabiyyoon!
We are giving our most high glorifying to that most glorified one in the Divine Presence. At least you must understand that every time you are praying two raka`at, before finishing them, there is at-Tahiyyah (the supplication of heavenly greetings); at-tahiyyaatu lillahi, greetings, wa 's-salawaatu, and praises, wa 't-tayyibaatu lillah, (and all good things belong to) are for Allah. Then saying, as-salaamu `alayka ayyuha 'n-Nabiyyu (Mawlana Shaykh stands) For whom is this? You are praying every day at least 40 raka`ats, and at every time of prayer. (Mawlana shaykh sits) You are making at-Tahiyyah, heavenly greetings. If you are not saying, as-salaamu `alayka ayyuha 'n-Nabiyyu, “Greetings to You, O Prophet,” then there is no salaah, no prayer. Who is giving that “As-salaamu `alayka ayyuha 'n-Nabi"? Who is saying this? Are you not understanding Arabic? Are you an `ajam, non-Arab, or Turk like me?
O Arabs! For what is Allah Almighty saying, “As-salaamu `alayka ayyuha 'n-Nabi"? That khitaab, that addressing has never happened to anyone, personally. As-salaamu `alayka ayyuha 'n-Nabi! Who is saying this O Salaafiyoon? Who is saying? Is He not Allah? As-salaamu `alayka ayyuha 'n-Nabi! He is not saying, as-salaamu `alayka yaa Nabi, but saying, ayyuha, “O you.” [Denotes heavenly honorary greetings] Heavenly khitaab that never reached to any Creation, min Allah, from Allah to His `abd, to His servants; never happened directly, as in, "as-salaamu `alayka ayyuha 'n-Nabi." No one is knowing the `uloowu 'l-qadr, “exalted value.” No one is knowing the li 'l-ghaayah, extreme, no one can reach, as-salaamu `alayka ayyuha 'n-Nabi wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh.
Angels are saying, as-salaamu `alayka ayyuha 'n-Nabi, Allah khitaaban, wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh. Angels saying; malaku 'l-`alaa, not ordinary angels, but angels that are malaku 'l-`alaa, high level of angels. They are saying, "wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh.” Mashaa-Allah, mashaa-Allah! At-tahleel, analyzing for tahiyyah; as-salaamu `alayka wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh, as-salaamu `alaynaa. Rasool. Jibril (a) tammaam, as-salaamu `alaynaa wa `alaa `ibaadillahi 's-saaliheen, “Greetings upon us and upon Allah's righteous servants.” Whom are the `ibaadillahi 's-saaliheen, that they are those following that order and giving their most high respect to the most highly respected one in Divinely Presence.
Another question. You are `ulamas and saying you know everything. There is a question to Salafiyoon, to doctors of Shari`ah, to Azhar ash-Shareef `ulamas. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem. Allah, subhaanahu wa ta`ala, min Sifaatihi 'l-Uloohiyyah, one of the Divine Attributes is that Allah Almighty is Mutakallimun. Yes? Sifaatu l-Kalaam. (Mawlana Shaykh sits) That is the divine attribute of Allah Almighty for speech or addressing, yes. Suwaal, question: kalaamullah qadeem, “Allah’s Ancient Word.” Qadeem maa al-ma`na? Qadeem, Eternal; from Eternity to Eternity, Allah Almighty is Mutakallimun. What are you understanding? Allah Almighty is sometimes speaking and sometimes not speaking? Sifaat, Divinely Attributes, yusheer `ala 'd-dawaam, “indicate continuity;” are continuous. Taateel maa fee, you can’t destroy it; Allah Almighty is speaking and His Divinely Speech never stops and is not taateel or ibtaal, “delayed.” And do you think Allah Almighty sometimes speaks and sometimes not? No, that is kufr! Allah Almighty is Mutakallimun, speaking with His Divine Attribute, that He has kalaam, He speaks.
Isma`a yaa Salaafiyoon hal taraa.... was Allah Almighty was speaking by Himself? He was speaking to Himself? What is that? If we are looking at a person who is sitting and speaking ti himself, we will say that if this person is speaking to himself, there must be something wrong with that person. Majnoon, "crazy." If a person is speaking all by himself, without addressing anyone, you are saying that this person is foolish, or is becoming, majnoon. Janna 'r -rajul, yahkee li haaluh, “The man is crazy, he speaks to himself.” Allah Almighty yahkee li haaluh, speaks to Himself? Qul! Say! (Mawlana Shaykh laughs) You are `alim, you are `ulama. `Ulamas, mashaa-Allah, shoo `ulama anta?
Say! Allah Almighty was speaking to Himself for what? Bidoon, without a listener? Allah Almighty was speaking to Himself? For what? Or speaking to someone? There must be a mukhaatab, "addressee." If a person is yukhaatib, there must be a mukhaatab. Khateeb, if no jama`ah, listeners, his speech is foolishness. Do you ever see that a khateeb, like yourself, is getting up on a minbar, and no one is there, and you are speaking? People should say, “He is janna 'r- rajul, speaking tala `ala 'l-minbar an yahkee (going up on the minbar to speak) to himself? Majnoon!" Allah Almighty, that He has Divine Attributes from azali ila 'l-abad, “from pre-Eternity to Eternity.” To whom (was He addressing)? Who was mukhaatab? Who was addressed in the Divine Presence? Say! Who was? Say! It is a question!
If Allah Almighty is speaking by Himself, that is not from His Divinely Attribute. Allah Almighty not speaking and you are saying He has a Divinely Attribute that He speaks, yukhaatib, addressing? To whom? Without an addressed one, how are you addressing? Min kaan, in the Divine Presence, when Allah Almighty is addressing. Say; don't go like this or like that. Who was his addressed one?
(Mawlana Shaykh stands) He was addressing to Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! Why are you not saying? Are you not ashamed, or are you not knowing? Why? Say that Allah never addressing to anyone, making Allah Almighty like a person, speaking by Himself, saying jannu 'r-rajul. Jan Rabbuna? Astaghfirullah. Allah Almighty is addressing and would there be no one who is addressed? He was speaking with His most beloved, most glorified and most majestic one, who is Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! Raghman `alaa anfikum! (In spite of your noses) (Mawlana Shaykh sits)
They are `ulamas, scholars. Say! Say! Then don’t be greedy because your greediness is reaching to the Divine Presence, and Allah Almighty is going to curse the one who is going to be greedy towards His most beloved one. May Allah forgive us.
Allahu Akbar! Ajaib! SubhaanAllah! Muqallib al-Quloob balash. Haadha kalamu 'l-Haqq! If it wasn't Truth, then no one would hear it. That is `alaamatul khayr, “a good sign, a good omen.” That is bushraa lanaa yaa ma`ashar al-insaan inna lanaa ruknu ghayr munhadim, “Good tidings to you. O gathering of Mankind, for verily we have a pillar never destroyed." Who is that pillar? That is Prophet (s), always standing up, never falling down, impossible to fall down, always standing up! Haqq! Haqq!
