(Mawlana Shaykh stands.) La ilaaha illa-Llah, la ilaaha illa-Llah, la ilaaha illa-Llah Muhammadun Rasoolullah `alayhi salaatullah wa-salaamuh. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)
O our master, master of this planet, we are asking also for your heavenly support for addressing to people living through East and West. I am nothing and you may bring anyone else and support him with your heavenly support, so we may address people. O Qutbu 'l-Bilaad, Pole of this World, O Qutbu 'l-Irshaad, Pole of Guidance! You are responsible also for people who are granted to be from Mankind, the biggest grant for all creatures! Even angels were asking (for that) honor which is so big, you can't imagine. Even our imagining is never reaching that level of honor we are on. SubhaanAllah, Glory to our Creator, Allah Almighty! And we are saying now, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani 'r-rajim.
If he is stepping with right steps, it is easy for Mankind to reach the highest levels of honor that for him are countless, as well as glory that is granted to Mankind. No one knows an end, no end. What about for the beginning? No one is knowing our beginning, also and no one is knowing our ending also, only our Creator! We are not speaking on that point because it is not through my authority or anyone else's authority to say what are Allah Almighty’s levels on Mankind; the highest level or lowest level, no one knows.
But Shaytan is the most dangerous creature for Mankind! It is more dangerous than a tiger, more dangerous than a cobra, more dangerous than a boa snake. Most dangerous being on Earth for Mankind is Shaytan! Others are going to be as one drop from one ocean. Shaytan is our dushmanlik enemy on top point, no other one can reach that level! That is Level One and others are under it. Highest position to be enemy for Mankind is Shaytan, no one reaching to that level, and under that you can find countless levels, all graduated by Shaytan.
Even Mankind through themselves are going to be against their honor and going to be against humanity. Mankind has been granted such an honor and glory in the Heavenly Presence of the Lord of Heavens, but are going against each other as enemies. What is that foolishness? That is the last ghaaya, aim, of enmity and the last point for billions of Mankind is to be against the honor of Mankind! That is a`jaaib, strange!
We understand that Shaytan is the most terrible one against Mankind, but for what? Because Mankind just granted such an honor that Shaytan was asking to be on that level. That is some reality that must be known through whole teaching centers for people to know. Shaytan, we understand, was angry and he was most hasad, envious and angry against Mankind for what we have been granted!
“Why are you getting to be enemies for us?”
“No, because you have been granted that honor; therefore, I must be enemy of all of you, from smallest up to oldest one.” That is just clear for why Shaytan is against Mankind.
O Salafi `ulamas and now you are hadari `ulamas! Are you reminding that point for people? What are you teaching to people? What are you teaching? If you are not understanding, you can’t teach. First you must learn and you must understand, then what you understand you must teach people. You must give people an understanding on every verse of Holy Qur’an and every holy hadith. Shaytan is worst, most terrible enemy for Mankind.
Because we have been granted an honor through Creation, no any other level for Mankind that they have reached. Therefore angels are saying, “O our Lord!” and (Allah Almighty) saying, “I am going to bring into existence a new creation, he should be My representatives.” Allahu akbar! What an honor! Angels saying, “You know, our Lord. We don’t know anything." "We are only looking and seeing that creature is going to be amongst themselves, most terrible ones, most wild ones, most merciless ones, they are going to be astonishing, “Ata’ajjab (astonishing).” But they are saying , “You know, our Lord,” and (Allah [swt]) is saying, “Yes, I created that one, and to make them to reach the point of yaqeen, certainty." It is important, yaqeen.
Mu Allama Adama al-`asmaa`a kullaha, "He taught Adam all the names (of everything in existence)."Allah Almighty just taught Adam (a) the names in existence, that they are in it; where he should be, where is his level on that level, what is in it, the Lord of Heavens just taught him. Giving, taught him. And to make hujjatul qaati`ah definite proof for angels, saying thumaa a`aradhaha `ala al-malaa'ikah, "Then laid them down before angels." Allah Almighty is teaching, granting to Adam (a) names of whole existence, every kind of creature that is created. Asking, then giving a name.
O People! That means you must understand that the Lord of Heavens (swt) is never leaving anyone without a name. And we must understand that means also atoms have names. But Allah Almighty gave to Adam (a) a summary of whole beings, and saying, “This is that, this is that.” Not going to tafseelaat, details, not reaching, not giving and not asking details to everyone; but out-looking, saying, “What is this, what is is that.”
O hadari `ulamas, what about that point, your idea? Not asking idea, no idea. No, no idea. Idea is very weak, light. I am asking yaqeen, certainty.
For example, I know I am looking at the sun; its reality I am not knowing, but must be someone who knows real being of the sun. Our knowledge is only to say, “That is the sun, shams," but what is shams’ identity, hawiyyat, how it is going to be a sun, what is its mission, how it came in existence and how it is continual on its way? Even the sun itself is not knowing about his real being; only Who created the sun, He knows. We may say, therefore, “That is sun, that is moon, that is a star, that is a plant, that is an animal, that is Man.” That is even kase, cup. Its name Allah Almighty is giving to Adam (a) and he was knowing.”
But for what is it going to be used on Earth, that is another knowledge not granted to Adam (a). Adam (a) was knowing something of the out-looking (appearance) of that bowl, but for what it should be used? He was knot knowing: he only knew the names. “That is hayawaan, animal, that is plant, that is sea, that is moon, that is sun,” he knows. For what purpose is its real being, their real identity was to be known only by one person only. No any other prophets also are knowing hikmatu al-wajood, the wisdom of existence of everything. Adam (a) was knowing only their names. Sayyidina Muhammad (s) was, ooteetu al-hikmah, "I came with wisdom." Rasoolullah (s) was saying, “My Lord granted to me knowledge of the real identities of everything, so that I know a donkey is for what, a cat for is what, a wolf is for what, a fox is for what, deer is for what, that tree is for what, for which purpose. Hikm, wisdoms of their being in existence, was with the Seal of Prophets (s), Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.)
Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, wa lillahi 'l-hamd! I think you know Arabic hadari `ulama, that the Seal of Prophets (s) was saying, u’teetu jawaami al-kalim. Hadiths are oceans, okeanus, that word. Who can reach to that level, where Prophet (s) is saying, "Just I have been granted oceans of meaning of beings on Earth and on heavens." Allahu akbar!
As-salaamu `alaykum, our listeners. (Are you) sleeping, talking to each other, or looking to me? I am asking from my trainer to make me to speak truth, truly. Yes, I am not knowing, but I am asking to learn. You also must try to be learners. Yes? Learners. We have been ordered to learn, we have been ordered to know, we have been ordered to understand. Allahu akbar! Therefore, O common people, whom you are hearing and listening, so many ones may say, “O Shaykh, we are hearing, listening, but not understanding.” That is true, that is true. If I am saying to a small boy about the being and characteristic of Man who is sinna 'l-buloogh, reaching adulthood, (maturity) sometimes they are giving medicine for adults, for children, for no-mind people. Yes, medicine used for three kinds of no-mind people, for children, for adults. ... You may be able to say about adult’s physical being and fa`aliyaat, functions of being Man, but (for a boy) it can't be. Therefore, so many people say they are not understanding, but you may try for understanding. You must try to understand something; if you are not understanding, your level going to be under level of animals.
There was one famous shaykh, famous wa laghwa in language of Arabic, imaam, famous for his grammar of Arabic. So many people around, some `alims, they were sitting and learning and no one coming to him. And he had a goat. And taqreer, report, he was coming at home, taking that goat in front of him and saying, “Say, 'Arabic grammar is the most difficult, among all languages.'” sarfu'l-`arabiyya as`ab, lisaan most difficult, lisaan through other languages. And he was keeping that goat in front of him, and that goat making like, “Aheh, aheh (goat sounds) and saying, “You not understanding yet? Once again, once again.” Abu Abshir `alim jaleel min `arabiyya fee hadhal-maslak, grand scholar in Arabic. He was becoming a laghwi `arabi, famous linguistic scholar in Arabic. Now all of us are like goats, how much we are speaking we are saying, “Aheh, aheh,” but never understanding. Just I forget his name. A teacher says the lesson once, but listeners must repeat it so many times for understanding. And we are coming to this life for an understanding.
“Who are you?”
"I don't know who I am"
“Are you donkey?”
“Are you wolf?”
“Are you donkey?”
"Are you horse?"
“Then who are you?”
“I am a man.”
“Then give me an explanation for being a man.”
We are only saying something from one ocean, one drop for understanding. We are coming now to another ocean; we may enter into it, but up to morning we are not going to finish. We must collect our association, yes. We know that Shaytan was most envious one for Mankind, and that is because he was expecting that the honor, or the last level for honor of the whole Creation, that Allah Almighty granted to Adam (a) is for the sons of Adam (a). Therefore, he is our enemy. But what about Mankind? Are they going to be enemies to each other? That point, they are saying to me to make wudooh, most clear. Yes, all of you are just granted such an honor, so for what are you going to be enemies to each other? Do you think that it is suitable for you to be enemies to each other?
That point, O Pope, you are not understanding what I am saying. O Chief of Rabbis, you are not understanding! O `ulamas, O hadari `ulamas, O Salafi ulamas! You are not understanding. But you must understand that what I am saying is not from myself and it is such a point, so naazeeq, such a fine meaning what I am asking. Shaytan is our enemy because we have been granted the level of honors to be deputies of the Lord of Heavens (swt). But why are we going to be enemies to each other? For what reason? That is a very important point I am asking also to Shaykh al-Azhar or hadari ulamas, mufti, Saudi mufti or Iraqi mufti or Damascus mufti or Egyptian or Libyan highest level `alim. I am asking, why is Mankind going to be enemies for each other? What are they asking? To where are they asking to reach, (if they are) going to be enemies? Therefore, only this dars granted to me tonight, is enough for whole people to stop enmity between themselves, or Jahannum, Hellfire is suitable for those people!
May Allah forgive me and forgive you! O our Lord, O our Lord forgive us! Yaa Sayyidee yaa Rasoolullah, your intercession! O yaa awliyaullah, keep our understanding on the right direction. If a clever is one thinking on that point, they should say, “Really what that servant is speaking is just 100 percent true."
O People! Come and say astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah. tubna wa ja`ana `ilayk, Yaa Rabbana! O our Lord, forgive us and grant us from Your endless Mercy Oceans! Save our understanding from dirtiness, because Shaytan is making Mankind's understanding as a WC (toilet), making its dirt on it. I am sorry to say this. We must look after for understanding, that is a very important point. Up to today how many things we are speaking? This is just as a crown on that. May Allah forgives me and forgives you and forgives everyone from Mankind.

"Imam Ahfash" is the name of that big `alim on grammar of Arabic. Imam Ahfash made his goat address through teaching. That goat never taught, never learned, but he was coming to understand more and more and his knowledge is going to be in certainty. Imaam Ahfash. They now are giving me his name also.
