Yaa Allah, yaa Rabbee, yaa Allah, yaa Rabbee! Yaa Rabbuna, yaa Rabbuna, yaa Rabbuna, yaa Rabbuna, yaa Rabbuna, yaa Rabbuna, yaa Rabbuna! Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah! Madad! Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. Dastoor. (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, `Azeez Allah! Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Subhaan Allah! Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Sultaan Allah! AntAllah wa nahnu `abiduk!
We are Your servants, You are our Lord! O our Lord! Lord of Creation, Unknown Lord!! Give Your most high glory and praising for Your representative from pre-Eternal up to Eternal, Sayyidina Muhammad (s). O our Lord, give Your praisings to all prophets and their deputies and their followers. We are asking forgiveness and we are saying, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem, always running from the traps of Shaytan and asking for Your forgiveness and protection. And we are saying, Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. (Mawlana Shaykh sits)
O People! O our Attenders! As-salaamu `alaykum. And also as-salaamu `alaykum, yaa Saahib az-Zamaan! As-salaamu `alaykum yaa `ibaadAllah as-ssaliheen! As-salaamu `alaykum yaa ayyuhal mu`mineen! That salaam just has taken away every badness or everything that is giving trouble to us for our physical beings. That salaam is taking away everything harming Mankind. Therefore, say more often, “as-salaamu `alaykum." It must be at least on this world 40 million times, “as-salaamu `alaykum.” If not coming on that number and up, this world is coming down, cursing, and finishing!Therefore, every badness, every trouble is coming on Earth when that number is coming down.
O our Believers! O Muslims! Try to say, as-salaamu `alaykum at least 40 million times to be between Muslims, to take away that trouble. And if the number increases to 50 million or 500 million, that is making devils come down, catching them from their necks, and throwing them down! That is a very important tahiyyat of Islam. Give that! Don't say any other word in Turkish or in Arabic or in other languages. Taking up, taking up (increase giving and returning salaam). Some days it is going to be less, and troubles will be up. When that number increases, then troubles come down. Look at what is happening in east and west in this world; millions of people are just going to be taken away, particularly in Islamic territories. That is the reason that troubles are increasing through Islamic territories. If only they are saying daily, as-salaamu `alaykum ten times, a hundred times, a thousand times, that is heavenly protection for them, here and Hereafter also! Very ajaa'ib, astonishing! That is a secret knowledge that only heavenly ones understand, why Allah Almighty is ordering and saying: (Mawlana Shaykh stands)
وَإِذَا حُيِّيْتُم بِتَحِيَّةٍ فَحَيُّواْ بِأَحْسَنَ مِنْهَا أَوْ رُدُّوهَا
Wa idhaa huyyeetum bi-tahiyyatin fahayyoo bi-ahsana minha aw ruddooha.
When a (courteous) greeting is offered you, meet it with a greeting still more courteous, or (at least) of equal courtesy. (4:86)
(Mawlana Shaykh sits) Talib, that is heavenly teaching of Allah Almighty. Allah Almighty is making some reasons for teaching people how they should be protected by heavenly ones! If heavenly ones are not protecting a person, where will they be? They will be hiding themselves, as that heavenly punishment reaches to them. Death is something declared through Holy Qur'an and holy books; people are asking to run away from it, but the Lord of Heavens says: (Mawlana Shaykh stands)
قُلْ إِنَّ الْمَوْتَ الَّذِي تَفِرُّونَ مِنْهُ
Qul inna almawta allathee tafirroona minhu.
Say, "The death from which you flee will truly overtake you.” (62:8)
(Mawlana Shaykh sits) O our Attenders! Look and listen! Are your running for protection?
O Salafi `ulamas! What is your understanding from that holy verse? If you are running and building huge towers and getting in, you are asking to be protected, but still death must reach you! You think death is only something coming to people as they say, "That person just shut down. That person just fell in water and drowned. That person died of cancer." In countless ways death finds its way to people and takes their souls!
O Salafi `ulamas! Marhaban! Where are you? Today you are very busy. With what you are busy, for what reason? "Because we are preparing ourselves to come back from enjoyful stations, enjoyful places in western countries, to return to our homelands. But before we return, we are running to get 'a checkup' (medical examination)." O Salafi `ulamas! Ask them, why they are making a checkup? For what? Will they learn something about their death, so they will be much more interested to enjoy themselves before death is coming? That is the new mentality of people. “Before dying, we must fulfill our endless pleasure, before death comes.” Then they run for a checkup, which says, "Your organs are working well,” or, “Perhaps it will be well for ten more years." If that patient is 70 years old, the doctors tell them all is well. But if they are 40 years old, the doctor says, "Don't worry, Your Highness, your body is well enough to carry you perhaps 40 more years." And with that they are happy, always coming back for more checkups, as they think death will not come quickly if they continue to make checkups!
Now people have lost their beliefs; now they travel to western countries, as they have also lost their mentalities and are following western mentalities. They are going to be so happy by making a checkup. And they have lost the belief that the cure for every illness is mentioned in Holy Qur'an, that Allah Almighty is saying: (Mawlana Shaykh stands)
مَّا فَرَّطْنَا فِي الكِتَابِ مِن شَيْءٍ
Maa farratnaa fee l-kitaabi min shay.
We have neglected nothing in the Book. (al-Anaam, 6:38)
(Mawlana Shaykh sits) O Salafi `ulamas! What we are saying, is it Holy Qur'an or not? What are you saying. There is nothing Allah Almighty neglects which might be asked about, "illah," but the Holy Qur'an contains its answer, giving contentment and satisfaction.
O People! Don't go for a check up, but come to the Holy Qur'an and its check up. You can make your check up through the Holy Qur'an. You are not in need to go to the western countries and give millions of dollars, Pounds or euros. No. Maa farratnaa fee l-kitaabi min shay!
Marhaban! O Salafi `ulamas! Do you understand or not? What does maa farratnaa fee l-kitaabi min shay mean? As a preface, we may say the Holy Qur'an is saying you don't need to go to western countries to get a checkup from someone who is not like yourselves, and their knowledge is shaytanic knowledge, but leave that and make a checkup through Holy Qur'an. Is anything wrong? Say, Salafi `ulamas! Wahhabi people are no-mind, so leave them! And finally, Allah Almighty is giving for every thing something for His servants to know and to live happily in this muwaqqat, temporary life. Hayyatan tayyibah, “good, wholesome life.” You are understanding Holy Qur'an, that Allah Almighty is just making clear for everyone that there is in this world, the life of people, some of them are granted hayaatan tayyibah, a sweet life, and most of other people haven't been granted that. And which thing is preventing them from living a sweet life? It is mentioned in Holy Qur'an.
O Salafi `ulamas! Why you are not saying to people how we can reach hayyatan tayyibah, a sweet life? Why aren't you making clear that verse? At least you may say, "O People! there is hadeeth ash-shareef saying, kun ma` Allah wa laa tubaalee, ‘Be with Allah and don't worry, don’t have a care.’” This is a formula for such a sweet life! Who is asking for his life to be sweet and enjoyful, that is the prescription doctors are giving to make people to live a sweet life! You are not knowing, Salafi `ulamas? If you are not knowing, how are you getting up and saying, “Allah Almighty is saying like this or like that”? Wahhabi people are not knowing, they only know how to live in this life feeding their nafs al-khabeetha, "the ugly, debased self.” Come to Islamic territories and try to live there as good Muslims! Don't go to live with people that are worshiping dunya and ilaahahum hawaahum, “Their desires are their god.” Don't live with such people that make their egoistic desires the main target. They are running there because they can't find that freedom in Islamic territories! Therefore, they are saying, "We are missionaries of Islam, " and they are liars, more than Shaytan! Write that down.
O Salafi `ulamas! What is the prescription of a sweet life for Mankind? What is it? If it is not mentioned, then does it means that Allah Almighty is not sending such a prescription, and is leaving His servants? No! Allah Almighty wants to grant His servants hayyaatan tayyibah, a sweet life here. What is the prescription? Say, make it clear! Don't only say, “We are `ulamas, we are doctors, we are shaykhs of al-Azhar ash-Shareef." What is the prescription? If there is no prescription, then why are you trying here? You are followers of your physical desires. That is 100% wrong and your lifestyles are 100% wrong! Bring the prescription of a sweet life for Mankind, and particularly for Muslims. Don't go to western countries, come to Islamic territories where continuous mercy is coming down. Why are you going to be under the cursing on those who are against heavenly books, against the Seal of Prophets(s), and against the last book and the last message from the Heavens to Mankind? Why you are going? Leave everything and come!
Don't say that we convert people to become Muslims. You are liars! I am shouting at Wahhabi no-mind people! You can't cheat me or anyone else, saying that you are missionaries of Islam. Who is asking for Islam, come here. I am nothing! I am not going to their homes to call them to Islam, but they are coming here and saying, (Mawlana Shaykh stands) ash-hadu an laa ilaaha illa-Llah, wa ash-hadu anna Sayyidina Muhammadan habeebullah wa rasooluh! (Mawlana Shaykh sits) Laa hawla wa laa quwatta illa billahi 'l-`Aliyyu 'l-`Azheem, “There is no power and no might except in Allah!” What must we do with such people? What are you saying? For Wahhabi people, in English there is a bad word which is used for them, "fanatics." Why are you going to western countries, fighting and destroying their buildings? If you are calling people to Islam, is that the way? Why are you going to their countries making trouble for them, then saying, "We are missionaries of Islam." What is that? Allah is cursing such fanatic ones! Leave people, they will come by themselves. The Seal of Prophets(s) did not run after people, they ran after him.
O People! May Allah forgive us. O Salafi `ulamas, try to learn how to call people to Islam. You say you have dawah centers to call western people to Islam. What is that? Who among you knows how to call people? You are using shiddat, force! What is that group which uses force?
O Salafi `ulamas! O Mulook! Why you are not correcting this wrong? Let them come to Islamic territories to become Muslims; you must not run after them! If you are going there, you will become known as irhaabiyyeen, terrorists! May Allah forgive us. This is the wrong way! People are doing wrong things on behalf of Islam, saying, "That is the true way." Irhaabee, terrorist, you must try to stop that word from being used for Muslims! We are not terrorists, no. Aslim taslam, we are Muslims who leave their wild tab`iyyah, characteristics!
You are running through planes, buildings, schools, and everywhere trying to give trouble to people, and then you call yourself Ahlu-'l-Da`wah, "people who invite." Mashaa-Allah. Mashaa-Allah. You are right, but you are calling people to Shaytan, not to Islam! May Allah forgive us.
O People, think on it. Try to be a perfect model for Mankind; you must try to be perfect ones! They are making me shout at Salafi `ulamas and other `ulamas, and doctors of Shari`ah, and al-Azhar `ulamas, throughout east and west. Give the prescription for hayyaatan tayyibah, a sweet life. If you don’t know about it, why you are calling people?
May Allah forgive me and forgive you, and forgive the wrong-way people and bring them to the true way, for the honor of the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s). (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits) Everything was created for his honor!
