Yaa ayyuha 'l- ghafiloon! Mashaa-Allah, subhanAllah, just they have been sent from up.

O our Attenders! As-salaamu `alaykum. They are hoping for something, therefore, they are coming and we are welcoming them. And I am asking, for what are you coming? "We are coming for visiting, shum al-hawaa, to smell the air." So many people are coming for enjoying; they heard there is some person at the end of the world sitting on an island, saying, “He is the weakest servant on Earth; we must go, because if he is the weakest one, he is giving what he has been granted from heavenly powers, giving so that he is becoming weak.” As you like: payment or no payment, it is free! People asking for freedom come here. If anyone is asking for freedom, they may find freedom in the jungle, not in the cities. But now it is changed and people are saying, "We must be free ones, like jungle people." If you are asking to be free like jungle people, go to the jungle, why are you coming here?! Go to Africa! Yes, America is also a jungle! "We are asking for another kind freedom." When you get your free will in your hands, then you shall be free. As long as your ego is making you its ride, you can't be a free one.

One waliullah said to me, "O Shaykh! Do you know how many kinds of people are living on Earth?"

I answered, “So many kinds."

He said, "No, two kinds! You must know what I am saying."

A big saint said, "Mankind are from two kinds: one is under the flag of Mankind riding on their rides (egos); and the second kind is not like the first group, although they are both like animals, but one is not harming anything, and the second group are wild ones, harming others. Those in the first group are very tame, very soft and good ones, and the second kind are so wild and terrible, always attacking each other and aggressive! Mostly if you are coming from the front they bite you, and if you are coming from behind, they kick you. Be far away from them!” SubhaanAllah! He continued, "In general, Mankind has been granted a ride to ride on, according to their Creation's hikmat, wisdom. Everyone is just created by some wisdom and you can't find everyone in nature to the same. But generally, some peoples' characteristics are different from another group. One group of Mankind is very, very soft. Everyone is representing one from the animals’ world. Mostly people are of two kinds, and of them some are the level of donkeys, and people ride on them. And now the whole world is in such a way because people left Shari`atullah, the holy orders of Allah Almighty that He granted them to be honored ones. Now they are falling down, behaving like donkeys, and people are riding on them.”

That waliullah said that classification of people represent donkeys' group among animals. Understanding? There are always donkeys riding on them and they are unhappy. They are Shaytan's donkeys because they are followers of Shaytan and its group! Shaytan is from the wild kind, because when Allah Almighty ordered angels to bow to Adam and all angels fell into sajdah, only Shaytan refused, saying, "No! I am not making sajdah for that one. O Lord of Creation (not, 'O my Lord')! You are making them more honorable than me, when, for thousands and thousands of years, I made sajdah to You! But You are not granting me that honor; rather, You are giving it to that new one who is not making sajdah like me! Therefore, I will not obey that order!"

Allah Almighty is not in need to address such a dirty creature, haasha! Angels were saying, "Bow! Go away dirty one!" And Shaytan said, "I will make (Mankind) my donkeys. I am not leaving one of them to be free but I will ride on him!"

“How are you going to make people your donkeys?”

"I will teach some (in my ways) and graduate them, then I will give them titles, and through those titles I will make a group of people to ride on others. Therefore, when the Last Days approach, you will find my graduates are riding on more than 99% of Mankind like donkeys!”

And the Seal of Prophets (s) advised, (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits) "O my ummah! All nations are going to be either a rider or a ride. O my nation! Don't be rides, but try to be riders.” Don't be donkeys, be lions!"

Can anyone ride a lion? But 21st century people are happy to be Shaytan's donkeys! Why are you not trying to be lions, that will never allow someone to ride them? Everyone fears lions! That is the honor of Mankind. But Shaytan did his worst for 21st century people and made the majority its donkeys. You now may find only a handful of people who are created like lions; no one can approach to ride them!

O People! Now awliya are saying, why are you not going to be lions, why are you going to be donkeys? Donkeys never give you honor, but to be a lion gives you honor. That is the last summary for people from Heavens. O People! Don't be donkeys, be lions, and you will reach the highest level of Heavens! Otherwise, if you are not lions, Shaytan will ride on you and you will go wherever it takes you! May Allah forgive us. Astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah.


You never heard such a thing? It is an unchangeable situation now, everyone is riding not only one, but some of them are taking two also. Some of them are riding on it and one also taking it from its tail. Allahu Akbar.
