[Imam Sahib recites Holy Qur’an]:
وَوَصَّيْنَا الْإِنسَانَ بِوَالِدَيْهِ إِحْسَانًا حَمَلَتْهُ أُمُّهُ كُرْهًا وَوَضَعَتْهُ كُرْهًا وَحَمْلُهُ وَفِصَالُهُ ثَلَاثُونَ شَهْرًا حَتَّى إِذَا بَلَغَ أَشُدَّهُ وَبَلَغَ أَرْبَعِينَ سَنَةً قَالَ رَبِّ أَوْزِعْنِي أَنْ أَشْكُرَ نِعْمَتَكَ الَّتِي أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيَّ وَعَلَى وَالِدَيَّ وَأَنْ أَعْمَلَ صَالِحًا تَرْضَاهُ وَأَصْلِحْ لِي فِي ذُرِّيَّتِي إِنِّي تُبْتُ إِلَيْكَ وَإِنِّي مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ
And We have enjoined upon man, to his parents, good treatment. His mother carried him with hardship and gave birth to him with hardship, and his gestation and weaning [period] is thirty months. [He grows] until, when he reaches maturity and reaches [the age of] forty years, he says, "My Lord, enable me to be grateful for Your favor which You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents and to work righteousness of which You will approve and make righteous for me my offspring. Indeed, I have repented to You, and indeed, I am of the Muslims."
أُوْلَئِكَ الَّذِينَ نَتَقَبَّلُ عَنْهُمْ أَحْسَنَ مَا عَمِلُوا وَنَتَجاوَزُ عَن سَيِّئَاتِهِمْ فِي أَصْحَابِ الْجَنَّةِ وَعْدَ الصِّدْقِ الَّذِي كَانُوا يُوعَدُونَ
Those are the ones from whom We will accept the best of what they did and overlook their misdeeds, [their being] among the companions of Paradise. [That is] the promise of truth which they had been promised.
وَالَّذِي قَالَ لِوَالِدَيْهِ أُفٍّ لَّكُمَا أَتَعِدَانِنِي أَنْ أُخْرَجَ وَقَدْ خَلَتْ الْقُرُونُ مِن قَبْلِي وَهُمَا يَسْتَغِيثَانِ اللَّهَ وَيْلَكَ آمِنْ إِنَّ وَعْدَ اللَّهِ حَقٌّ فَيَقُولُ مَا هَذَا إِلَّا أَسَاطِيرُ الْأَوَّلِينَ
But one who says to his parents, "Uff to you; do you promise me that I will be brought forth [from the earth] when generations before me have already passed on [into oblivion]?" while they call to Allah for help [and to their son], "Woe to you! Believe! Indeed, the promise of Allah is truth." But he says, "This is not but legends of the former people."
وَلِكُلٍّ دَرَجَاتٌ مِّمَّا عَمِلُوا وَلِيُوَفِّيَهُمْ أَعْمَالَهُمْ وَهُمْ لَا يُظْلَمُونَ
And for all there are degrees [of reward and punishment] for what they have done, and [it is] so that He may fully compensate them for their deeds, and they will not be wronged.
وَيَوْمَ يُعْرَضُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا عَلَى النَّارِ أَذْهَبْتُمْ طَيِّبَاتِكُمْ فِي حَيَاتِكُمُ الدُّنْيَا وَاسْتَمْتَعْتُم بِهَا فَالْيَوْمَ تُجْزَوْنَ عَذَابَ الْهُونِ بِمَا كُنتُمْ تَسْتَكْبِرُونَ فِي الْأَرْضِ بِغَيْرِ الْحَقِّ وَبِمَا كُنتُمْ تَفْسُقُونَ
And the Day those who disbelieved are exposed to the Fire [it will be said], "You exhausted your pleasures during your worldly life and enjoyed them, so this Day you will be awarded the punishment of [extreme] humiliation because you were arrogant upon the earth without right and because you were defiantly disobedient."
وَاذْكُرْ أَخَا عَادٍ إِذْ أَنذَرَ قَوْمَهُ بِالْأَحْقَافِ وَقَدْ خَلَتْ النُّذُرُ مِن بَيْنِ يَدَيْهِ وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِ أَلَّا تَعْبُدُوا إِلَّا اللَّهَ إِنِّي أَخَافُ عَلَيْكُمْ عَذَابَ يَوْمٍ عَظِيمٍ
And mention, [O Muhammad], the brother of 'Aad, when he warned his people in the [region of] al-Ahqaf - and warners had already passed on before him and after him - [saying], "Do not worship except Allah . Indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a terrible day."
(Surat al-Ahqaaf, 46, 15-21)
Sadaq-Allahu 'l-`Azheem. Wa ballagha Nabiyyahu 'l-Kareem wa nahnu `alaa dhaalika min ash-shaahideen ash-shaakireen bi qalbin saleem. Alhamdulillahi nasta`eenahu wa wa nastaghfirahu wa nastahdihi. Wa na`udhoo billahi min shuroori anfusinaa wa min sayyia`ati `amaalimnaa. Man yahdillallah falaa mudilla lah wa man yudlilla fa laa haadiya lahu.
Allah the Almighty spoke the Truth and His Noble Prophet delivered the message and we testify to that and are thankful for it, with sincere hearts. Alla praise is to Allah, and we seek His Help and His forgiveness and His Guidance. And we seek refuge in Allah from the evil of our own selves and from the evil of our own deed. Whoever Allah guides, no one can lead astra and whoever Allah leaves to go astray there is no one else to guide him.
Praise be to Allah (swt) on His Favor that is manifest and hidden and we are also praising Allah and thanking Him for sending Prophet (s) to us to show us the right way.
People do some small worship, and if they pray one prayer or fast one day they think they did a great favor to Allah (swt). They don’t know that Allah (swt) doesn’t need anything from them. It is the way of Jannah. It will dress him with the best dress that will allow humanity to carry it. Human beings cannot carry anything. We are weak but we have to know that we are going to be asked. As long as we are on the way of Islam we have to know that there are some things that we have to follow, to carry a responsibility and we have to know what we will be asked on the Day of Judgment.
Allah said, “Be loving and don’t be tough.”
فَلَا تَقُل لَّهُمَا أُفٍّ وَلَا تَنْهَرْهُمَا وَقُل لَّهُمَا قَوْلًا كَرِيمًا
do not say ‘uff’ to [your parents] and do not repel them, rather speak to them kindly. (Surat al-Israa’, 17:23)
Don’t say to them “uff.” You say, “Uff" you lose. Look at your parents. Did you say “uff” to them? “Run away from me. I don’t want you to bug me.” Most people are doing that. They have to know that, that is haraam. They raised you up. They took your hand, passed together. When they grow old, you kick them out. Very few people take care of their parents. That is more to Allah (swt) than any other `ibaadah. Don’t say “uff.” to them. That’s what Allah doesn’t like. “I gave you everything: I gave you strength, I gave you food, I gave you money, I gave you a spouse, I have given you children, for one reason, in order to behave well, not to kick them away from you.” How many people I have seen all over the world, their only complaint is, “My son, my daughter. My son, my daughter. My son, my daughter.”
It is not difficult. When you give your parents a hand, Allah (swt) is happy with you. You don’t think to help them in any way, then Allah is not happy with you. Look how much you are sitting in this place, or a house, or any place for the sake of Allah, Allah turns it into a mosque, because He wants to give you power. He doesn’t want for you to lose the sincerity of that place. That is why He makes it a piece of Paradise.
Look, if you are sitting beside a president or someone that is important, what can he do? You get nothing. Imagine if you are sitting beside The One Who created you. He is the Creator. I have always been thinking how much it is to sit beside a Wali. It is a high level to promote you higher and higher towards the Creator. When you sit beside the Prophet (s) they look at you. What are you doing sitting beside Prophet (s) and Prophet (s) is sitting beside you? It is that reality that makes you powerful and Allah raises you higher and higher only to do that. Sahaabah (r) used to sit beside the Prophet (s) and they are happy that they are beside the Prophet (s). Prophet (s) is so happy to sit 'beside' Allah (swt).
The universe with all of its creation that has been created, not some but all of them will be turning in the happiness that Awliyaullah are getting from sitting beside a Wali or someone who is praying or someone who is fasting. He blessed them with the best dress. It is so strong that these Awliya are happy to say to humanity what they are seeing of Reality. What is in Reality is more powerful than what is in normal life.
You have been dressed by being in the area that has the Power of Reality and Certainty that you will get from Awliyaullah through their sitting with each other. People are dressed and blessed with a heavenly connection. So make sure that connection to Reality is not broken. Awliyaullah connect their prayers with each other in order that they get a powerful reality that they are explaining to know that reality.
We used to run to our shaykh at any moment as much as we could for Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (q) and Mawlana Shaykh `AbdAllah (q) to get the power that reflects from his heart into our hearts. This cannot be done by prayers only. This has to be done by a real model who is powerful to get the light that is in his heart and Grandshaykh’s heart to get every power possible. That is what will raise you higher and higher. One time when we were young I was visiting Grandshaykh (q) in Damascus and he was eating olives. I was coming from Lebanon, driving 200 kilometers to visit Grandshaykh `AbdAllah. One time I stopped at another shaykh first and then I went to him. He said to me, “Do not split your love.” He asked me, “Who is your shaykh?” I said, “You are my shaykh.” “The secret can be downloaded into your heart. Don’t split your love. If another shaykh comes, visit them but don't let your love be diverted."
The next time we went to see the Shaykh, Shaykh `AbdAllah he was happy. What did he say? He said, “Alhamdulillah.” He was happy and he dressed us with a dress that we never saw. He gave us the meaning of what we are speaking about today, “Cyber, cyber.” [cybersecurity] That was like an Internet code that he downloaded so strong in our hearts and alhamdulillah, gave us a secret of realities.
Fifty years ago Grandshaykh, may Allah bless his soul, said that Allah (swt) ordered the Prophet (s) to tell us the reality of cybersecurity. He said he ordered the Earth to come up, bringing all kinds of cybersecurity secrets in it that are going to be spread so quickly around the world.
He ordered the Earth to be so strong and powerful to bring out from deep in the Earth to spread that teaching. That is why people today speak about cybersecurity. What have they gained? Cybersecurity or the Internet was used recently but Awliyaullah were able to use it earlier.
Fifty years ago permission was given for this power of cybersecurity to be taught and to be given to Mankind and to be spread throughout this Earth. Alhamdulillah, it has been spread throughout the Earth and Awliya are the ones who are giving the information to Mankind. Don't think they don't know anything, actually they are the real scientists. Before it manifests onto the open world, the Awliya already know about it. They’re already using it and they are only channeling a little bit to us for us to use it. We are thinking that, “Mashaa-Allah, we know so much.” But what we know is what they allow us to know, so they are the ones who are giving it to us. There are 40 walis governing this Earth and their power is making everything move. Everything that is manifesting now is coming from the power of these 40 walis.
[Mawlana recites from the forty names from the Golden Chain:
Nabi (s), Siddiq, Salman, Qasim, Ja`far, Tayfur, Abu'l-Hasan, Abu `Ali, Yusuf, Abu 'l-`Abbas, `Abdul-Khaliq, `Arif, Mahmoud, Ali, Muhammad Baba al-Samasi, Sayyid Amir al-Kulali, Khawaja Baha'u 'd-Din Naqshband, A`la'ud-Din, Ya`qub, `Ubaydullah, Muhammad Zahid, Darwish Muhammad, Khawaja al-Amkanaki, Muhammad al-Baqi, Ahmad al-Fa'ruqi, Muhammad Ma`soum, Sayfu 'd- Din, Nur Muhammad, Habibullah, `Abdullah, Shaykh Khalid, Shaykh Isma`il, Khas Muhammad, Shaykh Muhammad Efendi al-Yaraghi, Sayyid Jamal ad-Din Ghumuqi al-Husayni...]
These are the ones who are in charge of governing this world and governing the Creation. Their hearts are books of Realities. Reality is for them.Reality is for them. Thanks to Allah (swt) Who guided us to this tariqah, to this way.
May Allah forgive us. May Allah bless us. May Allah (swt) give us power in our hearts
Wa min Allahi 't-tawfeeq.
Wa ’s-salaamu `alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh.
