Do You Need a Rocket to Reach Mars?

Laa hawla wa laa quwwata illa billah. Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem. Salaam on all prophets; they have been sent from Heavens to teach people what is that.

Temporary life is this dunya; permanent life is never-ending. The first lesson of the Prophet (s) is, “O People! You are here for a temporary time and after this is Eternal Life. Come accept and follow heavenly orders to live eternally. Don’t run after this dunya as it will end!”

The first lesson is to say, “Laa ilaaha illa-Llah Sayyidina Muhammadan Rasoolullah,” but Shaytan makes people (forget this and) run after dunya, which is temporary, ending. Throughout east and west, from north to south, in the Islamic world and the non-Muslim world, now no one teaches their young people that first you must say, “Laa ilaaha illa-Llah.” The first lesson you must learn is that we have been created by the holy command of Allah Almighty and were settled on this planet (for a reason).

O People! Life on this planet is temporary and every moment will finally end in silence and stop. Mashaa-Allah, they are running... I may say that Americans are no-mind people. Their behavior is ajaa`ib, strange, that they run after things that have no meaning, such as going to Mars! For what? What is there? Is this world not enough for them? You can see it is a desert, so for what are they going there, spending five billion dollars? That money is then finished for nothing!

If they are in their rooms and their doors close on them for one hour (trapping them), they would say, “How can I get out?” Therefore, how they are going up to Mars? First of all they should ask, “Who put Mars there?” Before you go there, learn that Mars was not there by itself. Why are you not asking about that? You must learn about that One, then you must ask, “Please, You Who put Mars in this orbit! O Creator of Mars! We are asking permission to go up and look at it.”

People are drunk (with pride). They said, “We put the American flag there,” but one angel could make it fall. Allahu Akbar! People have lost their intelligence.

Before you were born, I know in Damascus in a newspaper there reported a rocket had just reached to the Moon. Allahu Akbar, but for what? People said, “People went to the Moon.” I asked, “Did they come back?” They said, “Yes, they came back.” What did they bring? Donkey’s dirtiness! (Laughter) And they thought they would bring gold! They said, “It was very surprising, we did not see any donkeys there!”

(...) Coming and asking me, also. Silly people. How are they living there and how are they getting out? The Lord of Heavens is asking to show you something. Why are they not going? When they came out, why did they not run to the Pope or a to rabbi and ask, “For what? How it can be?” I don't know. Like this, thirty-three people (miners) can’t live for thirty-three meters (below ground), except the Lord of Heavens was showing something: why are you sending your people under the mountain? “No, we are waiting for a shaykh to bring them out for free!”

People now are drunk and not knowing about such a thing, wasting their energies and capacities, and losing everything. What is going to happen there on Mars? What will they bring? Astaghfirullah, they are not thinking about the capacity of the power of Man. They may go without using that rocket!! It is so easy. May Allah forgive us. Astaghfirullah.

Wa min Allahi 't-tawfeeq, bi hurmati 'l-habeeb, bi hurmati 'l-Fatihah.
