(Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, `Azeez Allah

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Kareem Allah

Allahumma salli was sallam `ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa `ala aalihee was sahbihi was sallim. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

Madad yaa Saahib al-Waqt, madad. We are saying, As-salaamu `alaykum to our attenders. Those attending are ahlu 's-s`aadah, happy people, beloved people, and honored people. Those not listening and escaping, no honor nor any pleasure for them here or Hereafter, because they are making themselves slaves for Shaytan.

O our Lord! Protect us, protect us. We like to be Your humble servants and You are giving never-ending grants. Yaa Rabbee, Sultan sensin, subhaan sensin. We are saying, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani ‘r-rajeem. O our Lord, we are weak servants! Protect us from Shaytan and its tricks and traps. He fell down and is asking to make whole Mankind to fall into Darkness Territories, and there is no life there. They are not living and they are not dying. So, so terrible, terrible situation. Whom they are following Shaytan, no hope for them, no lights for them, no pleasure for them. They are not living and they are not dying. They will ask to die. They will say, "We prefer to die," when Allah Almighty is ordering creatures that were on this planet, "Be earth, be dust, you were created from earth and go back to earth, you are finished, nothing."

Those people who have been granted to be honored ones as deputies of the Lord of Heavens are looking and seeing that all creatures are going to be dust. Animals' world is going to disappear, coming back to be dust. Coming from earth and going to be earth once again. They will ask, but they are never going to be dust. They are not living and they are not dying. Allah, Allah. Yaa Rabb, Allah, Allah.

People are thinking this life is a joke, denying beginning and denying ending, saying, "This is such a dream, just began and just finished." True, they are not knowing a beginning for their earthly life, but mostly they know their ends. Therefore, they will say, "Ohhh, if we can be unknown ones, if we can be as animals' world, going back to be earth." Never! They will be punished. Our knowledge is reaching to that point and we are saying, bismillahi ‘r-Rahmaani ‘r-Raheem. O our Lord, protect us, protect and grant Your Divinely protection to Your weak creatures and weak servants.

Laa ilaaha illa-Llah. You may think that to say even once, laa ilaaha illa-Llah through this life is giving something. That is something in our sights. What happens when a person is saying, laa ilaaha illa-Llah? That is an unknown treasure. As Prophet (s) was saying, "When a person says once, laa ilaaha illa-Llah, we are not going to give our judgment for that one." Whose tongue said even once, la ilaaha illa-Llah, no one is knowing what is written for that one as it is so huge a grant from Allah Almighty! Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar!

O People! Come and say, Laa ilaaha illa-Llah, laa ilaaha illa-Llah, laa ilaaha illa-Llah Sayyidina Muhammadan Rasoolullah `alayhi salaatullah. (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.) We are saying, bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. He knows. But now people are thinking this life is a joke. No, this is not a joke, this is a reality! Yes, there is a reality for this planet and for everything in existence belonging to that One! A reality is coming into existence even for an atom. I heard from our Grandshaykh (q), “Every atom has a reality. Without reality nothing can be in existence and if coming in existence, Allah (swt) is saying:

وَإِن مِّن شَيْءٍ إِلاَّ يُسَبِّحُ بِحَمْدَهِ

wa in min shay'in illa yusabihu bihamdih.

There is not a thing but celebrates His praise. (17:44)

Everything in existence must have a tasbeeh, glorification, for its Creator! Nothing in existence that does not praise Allah!"

What is going to be for Mankind; how many atoms do we have, and each one is glorifying! But the honor granted to each one for their glorifying is something else. The Lord of Heavens sent His prophets, His distinguished ones, to say that your whole body and all atoms through your physical being are glorifying their Creator, and that you have also been granted a mind for understanding. If you are following Shaytan and not glorifying, that will be a blame for you. On the Day of Resurrection his physical being will be glorifying his Creator and that person will be trembling and ashaming, thinking, "Everything in my body was glorifying, so why was I not glorifying Allah (swt) throughout my life?"

That ashaming will perhaps be much more punishment than to be thrown in the Fire! They will blame themselves in the Hellfire. "How our physical being was glorifying our Creator and I am not using my goodwill to glorify my Lord?" They lost the level of the best condition that people will be in from Allah Almighty's grants. They lost it!! But below (in Hell) they will know something, the Hellfire is for them. Really, their fire is burning them. If you can give to them everything from the favors and grants of Paradise, they would say, "This is not for me; I must be ashamed to eat from this because I did my worst, so I am not eating." If they do eat from it, they are not going to be in pleasure or enjoy themselves, no, that is cut down! Our physical beings' glorifying must continue, but they will say it is punishing them. If all the pleasures of Paradise were put in front of them they would say, "We are making this haraam for us because we did not, even for a short time, glorify our Lord!”

Therefore, now you give your judgment for yourself. What we are seeing now is going to be like a drop from an ocean of what is going to appear!

يَوْمَ تُبْلَى السَّرَائِرُ

Yawma tubla s-saraa'ir,

The Day when all the secrets will be examined (as to their truth). (86:9)

O Salafi `ulamas! Marhaban, marhaban, marhaban! Is it true or not what are you hearing from a weak servant? Ask someone from your trusted people, is it true or wrong? Ask them if what that servant (Mawlana Shaykh) is saying is true or not. What they shall say to you, Salafi `ulamas, is it wrong or is it right? Because heedlessness is bringing every badness to people in this and the Next Life. They are never finishing to blame themselves here, up to the Next Life. They will be sad!

"O People! Eat this from Paradise," and they will say, "We are not eating, it is haram for us because we did such bad actions and bad thinking, so blame is on us! We are making haraam, we are preventing our egos not to eat from that up to Eternity."

فَالْحُكْمُ لِلَّهِ الْعَلِيِّ الْكَبِيرِ

Fa'l-hookmu lillahi 'l-`aleeyyi 'l-kabeer,

the Command is with Allah, Most High, Most Great!" (40:12)

Final Judgment is for Allah Almighty. There are so many unknown points mentioned through the Holy Qur’an, and not everyone can understand. Qurani 'l-Kareem is not as an ordinary book; you are reading it and understanding only one understanding. The Holy Qur’an is our Lord's Glorified Book granted to the Seal of Prophets (s). Because you are not giving your understanding to know something, you are going to be punished and you will give your punishment for yourselves.

O our Lord, don't leave us to be heedless!Don't leave us to be occupied by earthly, material enjoyments! Material enjoyments punish people forever! They will be ashamed up to Eternity! But also there is not only one kind of Eternity; there are countless Eternities for people. Perhaps for everyone there is an eternal direction; through his Eternity he will be happy and joyful and pleased and with pleasure. Everyone's Eternity is something else (unique). That is a new understanding from the Holy Qur’an also.

O People! Come and listen before the last moment comes to you and makes you to fall into endlessness, losing your chance. Therefore, when they are asking to come back and change their Eternity to another level it will be said, "No, you are on the same Eternity. If We are taking you from your end up to your beginning you will be same ones, because you lost through your lives in dunya, you wasted it! Therefore your Eternity is never going to be changed. Your chance was on this planet, your life in dunya. You chose, you used your will and chose this direction, an Eternity you are following. If We are bringing you back, you are using the same and going up the same, like before. Therefore, no."

They will ask, "O our Lord, let us come again and we will do our best!"

It will be said, “No way, because you chose this direction through this life. This was your Eternity and if one-thousand times We are bringing you back, you are going to be on the same direction!"

O People! Believe in Allah (swt), believe in your Creator, believe what He is promising to you here and Hereafter. That is important. Choose here in this life your Paradise or your Hell. But you are thinking that Hell is never going to happen and you are asking to follow your ego's pleasures. And everyone is going on that direction, billions and billions of people will have the same way to Eternity. Therefore, there is no need to come back and bring you (any differently). Allah (swt ) knows what they chose. One-thousand times you are going on the same line of Eternity, saying, "O, if only we can come back!” but there is no benefit to bring you once again (to repeat your life). Subhaanallah! Subhaan al-Muqtadir. Everything, our Lord explained in His holy books, making clear our futures, so use (that knowledge)!

O People! Choose your Eternity! Some of them are best for you, some of them are the worst for you. If you are choosing the best ones, you will reach a position in which every moment a change comes, because you are believing in Eternity and Eternal Life. It's pleasure is going to change and not be a photocopy, no! That is for people who reached to that point: tooba lahum, good tidings for them. But those who are not following Eternity, but who follow the happiness of their egos, will not reach that. If they ask to come back (to repeat their lives), still nothing will change. Hayyaatu 'd-dunya, life on this planet is so short, like three days! Be patient for three days, not to listen to your egoistic pleasures, but follow the way of your Lord, to make Him happy with you; then you will be happy.

May Allah forgive us! Dunya is deceiving people and they are going in the wrong direction. Eternity is for everyone. There is good and bad Eternity. You are free to run after cars, run after night clubs, run after enjoyment on this planet, run after every materialistic aspect, run after dunya, run after its diamonds and its treasures. You are free (to choose), but it is not going to be changed. On the Day of Resurrection, some will ask to come back (and the answer will be), "No! Now you must choose a good Eternity or a bad Eternity!" All prophets called people to good directions, to good Eternity, where every moment is full with pleasures you can't imagine. Also second ones will repent that they ran after their egoistic pleasures, never ending or changing. May Allah forgive us!

O doctors of Shari'ah, doctors in Christianity, doctors in Judaism, you must speak about such realities! It is mentioned through holy books and finally in the Holy Qur’an. Tooba! "Endless good tidings" from Allah Almighty for those who are trying to understand. Tooba lahum is the biggest pleasure for them.

O People! Don't be cheated through dunya and its nonsense pleasures. Give through 24 hours, even one hour. If you are not, give less, less, less. Try to give time for your Lord, to say, “Glory to my Lord, Who created and directed me to the direction of Paradise through his prophets!” Refuse shaytanic ideas and Shaytan's followers. If not, you are with those people who never reach any real pleasure, here or Hereafter.

O People! We have been granted from our Lord to be such a perfect creation for understanding, but you are not using your best understanding and you are not understanding what was sent through holy books. All prophets came to show us the real ways to Allah Almighty's pleasures. May Allah forgive us and send us someone to makes us taste the real taste of our lives, not like those people seeking pleasure through their egoistic desires. May Allah forgive me and you, not to be changed (to wrong ways). We know we need someone who can send us on the right way, on the right direction, on the right understanding, because people are mostly on the wrong understanding. Try to come for a new understanding, the best understanding, and You will be happy here and Hereafter.
