Dastoor yaa Sayyidee, madad. (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, laa ilaaha illa-Llah. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, wa lillahi 'l-hamd! Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, laa ilaaha illa-Llah. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, wa lillahi 'l-hamd! Allahuma salli `ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa `ala aalihi wa sahbihi ajma`eena wa `ala saa'ir al-anbiyaa wa ’l-mursaleen.....wa salaamu `alaykum yaa ....(unclear) A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. Subhaan Sen, yaa Rabb! Sultan Sen, yaa Rabb! … (Mawlana Shaykh sits)
Allah, Allah. As-salaamu `alaykum, our attenders! To receive salaam, salutes and blessings from Heavens, is the biggest chance for a person. We our asking our Creator, the Lord of Heavens, to send His blessings to us as we are very weak ones both physically and in faith. Our beliefs are not enough to save us, and if Allah Almighty's beloved servants do not take our hands we can't save ourselves!
This is the first week of Sha`ban Mu`azhzham from the holy months Rajab, Sha`ban, and Ramadan. This past Jumu`ah night (Saturday) was the first of Sha`ban Mu`azhzham, which is honored by the Lord of Heavens, Who gave Sha`ban to His most beloved servant, Sayyidina Rasoolullah (s)! Tonight is going to be the first, second or third of Sha`ban Mu`azhzham and this coming Saturday night will be half of the month, the 15th Sha`ban Mu`azhzham. In Sha`ban Mu`azhzham there is such an honored night, Laylatu ’l-Bara`ah, which after Laylat ul-Qadr is perhaps the most honored night. We are asking from Allah Almighty to send His blessings to all of us and to send His forgiveness for all people! Those who receive those blessings will be the happiest ones here and Hereafter.
O People! Ask, as our lives are running. Just this morning a new baby was born and his breathes are going to be counted: one, ten, one-hundred, one-thousand, one-million, or one-billion. However much is written for that baby is mentioned, and everyone must complete what is written for them and when it is finished, no one can increase it. If our breathing is going to be a million times or ten-million times, that is fixed, and when it ends our being on this planet is finished and we must be taken away.
O People! We don't know if now, today or up to the next Jumu`ah, who is going to live and who is going die. He knows, and we are asking to be forgiven for the honor of that night, and beyond forgiveness, we are asking Allah Almighty for His blessings.
O People! Come and listen to what is going to be, as it is from heavenly news opening only to prophets, as the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s) (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits) informed his nation, "You are reaching the end of life in dunya, so think on it." Before, no one was on this planet and after one-hundred years no one is going to be on this planet, perhaps it will end. When the end comes every living one must be taken away to heavenly places. Heaven is not like our world, it is different. Therefore, come and listen to the holy orders of the Lord of Heavens! It will be good for you here and Hereafter.
Don't be from Shaytan's people and their followers, who puts so many traps for Mankind; beware of the traps. Try to make your face shining in the Divinely Presence. That shining reaches all Mankind, even if their colors are different. Shining is a grant from Heavens that will be radiant on their faces. We must ask, "O our Lord! Make our faces shining!" We are not using a battery for that shining on your face, no! The shining face is from prophets who informed all nations that what we need is from Heavens.
That shining is not the same as some people have on their physical beings, no. We are asking that after our death there comes to us a heavenly shining, because you cannot use lamps to brighten your grave! We are asking for radiance from Heavens, as the holy prophets taught people how their faces and bodies are will shine. Try to reach that shining!
O People! In this month there will be a night that, after the Night of Power, Laylat ul-Qadr, is the holiest night. After half of Sha`ban is complete there is going to be the holiest, most precious, and most heavenly shining night! Try to reach next the Jumu`ah that joins to Saturday night (Friday night at Maghrib), to be awakened and to ask our Lord to make our last day a shining and most happiest day for us! People cry when someone dies, but a new opening comes to them, and they will find two doors: one takes you directly to Heavens and the second takes you directly to black holes. No one knows now what is the reality of a black hole and I am asking scholars, what do you think? Why is it black and not blue, green, red, or purple? What is the reason? The reality of those black holes are going to be well known during our last breath.
We may be taken high up to an enlightened territory, and some people may be taken down to black holes. No one knows where they are going but everyone may understand and may know that the black holes are not a good place. A good place is to reach heavenly lights. Why are you not trying to reach heavenly lights, where we will be so happy, filled with the most enjoyful shining, and our body changed into lights? And yet you may be changed into light but your personality and feelings are going to be in the most perfect position for reaching heavenly Enlightened Dominions!
O People! Day-by-day we are approaching (those two doors), so look to where you are going to be taken. Leave the enjoyments of this dirty life and try to reach heavenly Enlightened Dominions, to be happy. People now are drunk, thinking, "We have been created to kill each other." That is the biggest blame on people from Heavens, to indulge in killing others. We are mu’mins, and believers never give any trouble around themselves: that is the character of the perfect mu’min.
Previously, we had a saying for some people of good character, "That person never gives trouble to anyone, not even to ants." Now people are killing other people, and I ask them, have you been ordered by heavenly commands to kill each other and innocent ones? They think they are granted heavenly honor when they kill someone, but it is the opposite: they have been given the worst position from the shaytanic world, the command center of Shaytan and its followers! Shaytan is teaching Mankind how to kill each other, while all prophets delivered the message, "O People! Be peaceful and useful ones." That is the holy command from Heavens, but now some defy this command and they will never be good ones as they will never stop giving trouble and killing people. They claim, "We reached the top point of civilization." To them I say, you reached the top point of wildness!
The Lord of Heavens is saying, "O My servants! Be merciful to My creatures, not harmful." All prophets brought this message to all nations, saying, "O People! Be good and merciful to My creatures! Give to them your good favors, don't be from those who are always giving trouble and suffering to people and killing them!” Those who give suffering to people will be taken to the Fire and those who give their favors to people will be happy here and Hereafter and Allah Almighty will grant them a happy and Eternal life."
O People! Try to reach Eternity! Eternity is for everyone, but a good Eternity is for those who are doing their best for all Creation, and they will reach the best spiritual life in Unseen Worlds, in Allah Almighty's Dominions. If not, they will be taken and they will be punished. Al-jazaa bi jins al-`amal, "The reward reflects the deeds." All prophets' teaching to people is, "O People! What you are reaching from goodness or badness is according to your actions. If you are doing good, you may reach rich and good ones."
Allah Almighty is never making zhulm, oppression. Therefore, people now on Earth are trying to do their worst for everyone and very few people are asking to make goodness for others. Whoever is doing bad, their destination will be bad! That is the summary of all holy books, "O People! You will reach goodness from your goodness and if you oppress anyone or act badly, you will reach that place where you will always suffer and be in punishment."
O People! We don't know what our destination is, but it is easy to know the destination, just look at yourself. If you are good in your actions and thoughts then you must know you are from good ones. If you are thinking only to harm others and give them trouble, or to make them suffer, you must know that your last destination is going to be like that. The Old Testament, the New Testament, the Psalms and the Holy Qur'an are all sealed on the principle that whoever is good here is going to reach goodness forever, and the last destination of those whose dealings here are bad will be the worst life where they will be harmed and punished. This is a summary.
May Allah grant us from His endless Mercy Oceans that everyone is merciful to all Creation and not harmful. However, some do not think about showing goodness for others; rather their aim is to make people suffer. May Allah forgive us. Don't follow Shaytan, but go with the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidi 'l-Awwaleen wa ’l-Akhireen, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits)
Allah, Allah. Inshaa-Allah yuaththir `ala quloobina, "If Allah so wills, that will affect our hearts."
