Do Not Be Proud for Man is Created Weak!

Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

28 May 2010 Lefke, Cyprus

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

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Kareem Allah.

As-salaamu `alaykum all Mankind from east to west, from north to south. Dastoor yaa RijaalAllah, madoona bi madadikoom. O chosen ones from Mankind on this planet, as-salaamu `alaykum! And we are requesting from your heavenly powers a support for addressing everyone who is asking to know something. Huuuuuuu.

We are saying a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. We are weak ones, but people are thinking they are powerful ones. That is their imagination, because Allah Almighty is saying, (Mawlana Shaykh stands), wa khuliq al-insaanu da`eefah, “For Man was created weak.” (an-Nisa` 4:28) (Mawlana Shaykh sits.) Allah Almighty is saying that Mankind is just created and they are weak ones. But Mankind is thinking they are much more powerful ones and they are such heedless ones. How can you claim, "I am a powerful one." How are you claiming you are powerful and running away from one virus that you can't see under a microscope? How are we saying we are powerful ones? But no-mind people are not thinking on it. We are maghloob, defeated in front of a virus. How are we claiming we are powerful? If you are powerful, catch the virus! (Mawlana Shaykh laughs.)

Once upon a time, Grandshaykh (q) told a story (that I will repeat now), because when we are saying something people are going to sleep. When I am saying a story, people are saying, "What is Shaykh saying? Sometimes he is speaking good stories, and we are pleased." Therefore I am saying, it is important, but our doctors are never going to be humble to say, "Once upon a time, there was an ant." (Mawlana Shaykh laughs.) Grandshaykh (q) was saying, once upon a time in Caucasus, one person who was selling clay pots was going to a village whose people were well-known that they are like idiot ones! (Mawlana Shaykh laughs.) Going on the way was that mule, and may be it was seeing something, making like this (jumping) and whole clay pots were broken, and saying, "Ohhh, what shall I do now? My whole capital is just finished!" He was beginning to think and cry, "Oh my capital is just finished and I am going to those idiot-ones." Then one shaytanic one was coming and saying, "Sit down and make it dust, fill sacks and go there."

He did that and went, reaching to those people. People were saying, "Oh welcome, what are you selling?"

"I am selling a medicine against fleas. I am bringing first class medicine against fleas."

And people were running, because there were so many fleas in that place and buying, buying, finishing. Then he was getting out and he was beginning to run as much as possible, but he was looking and seeing several people were also running after him and he was also much more running.

Then those people were saying, "O our fellow, don't run, we are tired, we are coming for you, don't worry."

Then he was stopping and coming down. "You, as-salaamu` alaykum."

"Wa `alaykum as-salaam. We bought that medicine that you are using against fleas but how can we use it? We are getting surprised, we bought it, but how can we use it?"

He was saying, "I am teaching you, yes. You may catch a flea, open its mouth and put this there, leaving and finishing."

"Very good way for using this. O thank you sir! Thank you sir!" and sending on doctors fleas, finished.

Now I am saying to our doctors, why do you fear from pig virus? Very easy, catch it, open its mouth, put poison and finished! Yes. But they are trembling, putting something like this, but from where going in virus? They do not know. Allahu akbar. Allahu akbar.

That is what we are saying and Allah Almighty is saying, "I created Man weak," but they are looking at themselves and thinking they are such powerful ones. Where is your power? It is not power to have missiles or nuclear bombs, nuclear weapons, or nuclear navy. You have such power, why are you not fighting against the pig flu? We are weak. We are weak, but Shaytan always makes people to look and say, "We are such people that can do everything," giving them pride.

Therefore, everyone now is thinking that they are something, and they are nothing! And they are asking to fight the Lord of Heavens. They are saying that, "We are not listening to You. We are not following Your orders. We are free to do everything and we are not accepting Your commands." That is a shaytanic teaching, and the Seal of Prophets (s) was saying, "My honor is that I am a weak servant to my Lord."

But now people are growing up with shaytanic characteristics. They are so proud. They are so envious. They are so greedy for dunya and everything in it. And Shaytan is teaching them and saying to them, "If you are using such things, you will be forever in this life." And doctors are looking and making research, for what, to catch the secret power in Man. That is their main aim, to catch that secret power so that they are not going to die. That is also a shaytanic teaching, but we must try to understand that we are weak ones, because the Creator is saying, "I created Man weak." And when Allah Almighty is saying "weak," no one is reaching the limits of weakness that Man is carrying.

O People! Therefore, listen and obey, and follow heavenly orders. I am sorry to say that whole nations, whole religions, including Islamic religion’s people are running after dunya and asking to create a new dunya where no one is going to die in that new dunya. That is the limit of being proud and idiot ones. Yes, that is an important point.

We are sitting here, and they are making me to speak on such points that are pillars of our beliefs. We are trying to teach people to know something of Divinely Attributes and on which pillars our beliefs are sitting on. People now are building high buildings from concrete, and architects are looking, calculating that according to the height of a building they are using iron. For what? To carry that high building. They are not using one-centimeter diameter, looking and making it strong.

And we also, Mankind, must try to reach to such a strong base that he may build on it his beliefs. But people are not giving such things to people. They are speaking, speaking, speaking. Say! You are Azhar `ulamas, and Salafi `ulamas, why are you not saying, وَخُلِقَ الإِنسَانُ ضَعِيفًا wa khuliq al-insaanu da`eefah, "For man was created Weak" (4:28)? Why are you not opening that holy verse, that you may fill hundreds and thousands of books with that holy verse? But they are not saying this. They are saying, "We have so many oil wells, we are not saying we are weak ones. We have gold, why are we saying we are weak ones? No, we are strong ones."

And that declaration is needed for Arabian Peninsula people. At the beginning of the 21st century, they had nothing with them, and through this they were humble people. And after Allah Almighty opened only a small way to think on it and to thank their Lord for what they have now been granted they are saying, "We are not weak ones." They are strong ones, mashaa-Allah, tomorrow you may see those wells are going to be dry and everything in the Arabian Peninsula is going to finish and then you will understand that the Lord of Heavens is able to do everything as He likes!!!

O mulook of Arabs, O rich ones from Arabian people, don't say, "We are strong ones because we have millions of timbers [bars] of gold and countless wells. No one can be able to make us down, we are always up and we are proud ones." Allah is looking, Allah is seeing, and Allah is giving His judgment on them, because Allah Almighty just granted to them so much richness, but they are not using it for the sake of Allah and they will be asked!!

Prophet (s) was saying, اللهم لآ تكلنا إلى أنفســنا طرفة عين ولآ أقل من ذلك Allahuma laa takilnaa ila anfusina tarfat `aynin, "O Allah! Don't leave us in the hands of our egos, and don't make a test.” We are weak ones, weak ones, forgive us and grant us from Your endless Mercy Oceans not to do something wrong that makes You angry with us, because heavenly anger is not easy, it may take everything.

May Allah forgive us.

As-salaamu `alaykum.
