Eating and Drinking Are Proof of Humanity

Sultan al-Awliya

(Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

La ilaaha illa-Llaah, la ilaaha illa-Llaah, la ilaaha illa-Llaah, Sayyidina wa Nabiyyina wa Mawlana Muhammadun Rasulullah, `alayhi salaatu wa salaamuh. Madad ya RijaalAllah, madad yaa Sultan al-awliya, madad. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

As-salaamu `alaykum, our listeners through east and west, from north to south! Divinely orders coming to heavenly gathering. Tonight, Allah is granting our grandshaykh to look across two or three continents, and I am also giving five continents, subhaanallahi ‘l-` aliyyi 'l-`azheem. In Holy Qur’an it is mentioned, Rabbu ‘l-mashriqayni wa rabbu ‘l-maghribayn, just mentioned east and west. I am surprised, north and south, I am never remembering to be mentioned in Holy Qur’an. SubhaanAllah! O People, our Grandshaykh is not like me. I am so serious. I am a serious person, but he is never going to be a serious one and therefore he is never even smiling. I am smiling, but I am serious. Subhaanallahi ‘l-` aliyyi 'l-`azheem, what we shall say? I know nothing, he knows something, (laughing) and I am in my heart sending one line to his heart, to take something, stealing from his heart when he was busy with such a things.

Once upon a time there was a tailor, a very famous one. For what was he famous one? Our listeners, be ready for understanding because my English is between English and Arabic! I am also losing my Turkish language! (Mawlana Shaykh laughs.) Therefore, be keenly looking to me and look to my eyes. Who is going to be through heavens is important one. On this Earth important people doesn’t matter. I am asking important ones, are you not going to WC (bathroom)? Then how important are you? Important people, if never going to WC, that is important! (laughter)

Therefore, there is something we must say. We must say, beware our Christian brothers, be careful. Our Christian brothers were claiming that Jesus Christ, peace be upon him, is God or son of God or Holy Ghost. Holy Spirit with him. And our Christian brothers are making Jesus Christ so high, high, high, high and saying Jesus Christ sitting on the Right Hand of his Lord, who they say is, ‘Father.’

Allah Almighty is hearing what they are claiming. It is such a strange, astonishing claim, because they are never ready. No one of them is seeing that Allah Almighty sitting on a Throne, and at His Right Hand, Jesus Christ is sitting or Left Hand, Holy Ghost is sitting. They are never seeing mushaahadah, witnessing, but claiming this. And the Lord of Heavens is hearing and He is saying through Holy Qur’an; Allah is saying to, “Make them to shut up! Don’t say such a thing!”

What saying to such a thing, Salafi ` ulamas? What is Allah saying, raddan `alayhim? (answer Him). The Christians are asking, ‘What is our proof, to make them not to speak once again? I am asking Salafi `ulama and then I am asking through east and west to hundreds of doctors now, one doctor for man, or doctor for dog. What is their doctor-ship? This is a new invention. Why they are not saying that that word is bida`? Why the `ulama are not refusing? Salafi `ulama, why they are not saying to those people, that they are signing, ‘dear’ and then their names. Is it not a bida`? kullu muhdathin bida` wa kulli bida`atun dalaala wa kulu dalaalatun fi 'n-naar, bringing every new thing through Islam is the wrong way, and wrong way carrying people to Hellfire.

Madad yaa Sultan ul-Awliya. If you are saying, ‘Sultan ul-Awliya,’ they are saying it is bid’a. How are your learned people accepting their certification through your universities when they graduate? You are making a ceremony and giving those people, saying, ‘Now you are Dr. Ramsi, Dr. Farhat, Dr. Raouf, Dr. No-Mind.’ Why they are not saying that is bida`?

I am asking in front of the whole world now. Those objecting, if someone is calling to me, “Shaykh” or “Sultan ul-Awliya,” they are very angry and saying, this was in the time of Prophet, now is bida`. What about your (titles of) “doctors”? And they are also teaching young ladies with young men. This is so? Mixed (co-education), it is not haraam? And they are attacking on me because I am saying there is Sultan ul-Awliya! `ala inna awliya Allah wa la khawfun alayhim, madhkoor, is true? It is mentioned in Holy Qur’an or not? It is mentioned. Why they are saying this is bigger bidaa`? What is the matter? Why they are objecting? Allah Almighty is saluting, giving honor to his awliya, `ala inna awliya Allah, enough nisbatuhum, Allah `azza wa jall nisbuhum lahu subhaana wa ta`ala, awliyaullah.

And in the opposite there is also awliya ash-Shaytan. It is true? True. That means awliyaullah from beginning up to end must be among people; can’t be lost. No, every time must be awliyaullah. And awliyaullah are understanding from the Prophet’s commentary of Holy Qur’an. Therefore, I am asking them, what you are finding? Raddan, answer back?

Answer back to those people that are saying Jesus Christ is sitting on Right Hand of the Lord of Heavens. Their knowledge horizon is so low and Sultan al-Awliya’s knowledge covers across countless horizons. This is a grant for us! What is your evidence for refusing? Christians are claiming that Jesus Christ is God or son of God or Holy Spirit. Two words I am saying because they are saying to me that I know nothing, but I know more than you are knowing. I know nothing, but when I am leaving my heart in front of Allah’s awliya, they are granting to me to speak, they are showing how we can refuse their claiming!

What is that Salafi `ulama? Azhari Shareef `ulama, even Shaam `ulama, Arabs, Turks,`ulama through east and west? The Islamic world has so many `ulama, how you can defend yourself in refusing Christians’ claims that Jesus Christ is God? He is not God! Allah Almighty making their claiming down, saying, كَانَا يَأْكُلاَنِ الطَّعَامَ kaana y’akulaani ‘t-t`aam, “They had both to eat their (daily) food.” (5:75) This is their answer, finished. It is not suitable to make an explanation on the Holy Qur’an.

O Salafi `ulama, learn! I am teaching you and you learn! If you are knowing it, why not saying! And refusing dawa baatila, false claiming, that Jesus is God or son of God. How you are refusing to do this? You are not knowing, but Who is teaching His Prophet (s)? Through his line, coming to a first-level person to speak on it. Allah (swt) is saying, كَانَا يَأْكُلاَنِ الطَّعَامَ kaana y’akulaani ‘t-t`aam, "They had both to eat their (daily) food." (5:74) ma m`aana. What is the meaning? Not bringing behind that cleanliness, it is not suitable.

Who is eating and drinking must go to WC (bathroom). How can anyone going to WC, be God or son of God? Finishing, coming down all of them! Three words making the whole of Christianity to come down. Whether they are liking or not, they can’t refuse this because anyone eating and drinking must go to WC. How can he be God or son of God? A`oodhu billah! Allah Almighty cutting their proofs. Finishing. No one if he is God, can say, ‘going to WC?’ What is that? What is Allah eating?

Another point: leave Jesus Christ! If Allah Almighty’s son haasha, and his mother eating and drinking, what they were eating? Say Salafi `ulama! You must learn because the Teacher of Mankind, the Teacher of Heavens is explaining! He (swt) is giving such a knowledge!

Another question: Jesus Christ and his mother were eating, finished. What about Allah? If His son eating and drinking, how can Allah (swt) be without eating and drinking? How can it be?

Another question: who is going to be His cook? And how many cows? Thousands, millions of cows and goats and sheep and whole animals? Is God eating food or nothing for him? (Shaykh Hisham says, “vegetarian.”) A`oodhu billah, or fasting? Allah Almighty always fasting? What foolishness!

O Salafi`ulama, O `ulama Azhar ash-Shareef ! Why in Egypt you are not calling them for a debate? Why you are not calling them? Call and ask! If can’t be able, send to me. I am the lowest one of creation, I may give because it is not for their `azhaamat, for their greatness and glory; it is not suitable to be discussing with such no-mind people. But my knowledge is enough for Salafi `ulama, my knowledge is enough for Azhari `ulama, for priests, bishops. More than enough my answer, because if whole of them coming together they can’t be able to answer back on that point. This is so powerful, so powerful situation!

Therefore, O people, what we are saying about “eating and drinking”, we are coming for that point. They were discussing on pride of Mankind, they are making me to begin from here and to go up. Because everyone so proud ones. We are saying for what are you so proud? Are you not going to WC? Who going to WC, how going to be proud one? Leave Allah Almighty (out of it). (If you are also saying) angels eating, drinking, going to WC, going to be coming on our heads like raining! Then to where you are escaping? What is that? That is muhkaamat (of established meaning), mutashaabihaat (ambiguous), in Holy Qur’an are such things. It is impossible to go on muhkamaat laa yumkin an yatakharraf, it is impossible (to change or corrupt the clear rulings) that is Divine ruling, Ilaahi ahkaam. We can’t approach heavenly commands, to Holy Qur’an. There is also mutashaabihaat, people coming and trying to give some explanation.

Leave that to us. Say to me, are the angels eating and drinking? Christian brothers are knowing that angels not eating or drinking. And Jesus Christ and his mother, you are saying, “He is God or son of God.” If angels have no need to eat, how are you saying, ‘Eating and drinking?’ Jesus Christ was eating and drinking with his disciples. How can he be eating and drinking and be Lord of Heavens? And angels’ lives going on as we understand, if eating and drinking, where they are running to find WC? WC on the heads of those people who are denying the existence of the Lord of Heavens! No one is knowing about Him Almighty, only He (swt)! And He was saying, “I was a hidden treasure, I created Man to know something about My existence and its way is passing through My most glorified and most honored and praised servant, Sayyidina Muhammad (s).” (Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

O Allah, they are knowing nothing!! Anyone can refuse this? Can’t be. If any one is refusing, they may write and defend on behalf of Jesus Christ. Come to me if any one can refuse. May write to me a defense that Jesus Christ was eating and drinking with his disciples and not going to WC? How you are making him God? Do you think that God’s divine attribute gives Him to eat and drink? What then, should be whole Creation? Creation must be what is through WC, they must be drowned in it!

O People, use your minds! We are approaching to Last Day. The Day of Resurrection is coming and don’t think that Allah Almighty calling you to discuss with you, No, because to be in Divine Presence is giving to one such an endless honor. But those people who are denying the existence of the Lord of Heavens are in such a bad position, as a person falling through a sewage channel. Do you think that that person can be taken in front of a king or sultan, to speak with him or ask him something? No, never. Don’t think that. Calling unbelievers to be in His Divinely Presence for such a speaking, no.

In that honor we may say one story. It is traditional knowledge about Sultan al-`Arifeen, Abayazid al-Bistami (q), saying, “O `ulama, O Muslims. Everyone is fearing to be questioned on the Day of Resurrection, but I am so eager for being in Divinely Presence, and He (swt) says only, ‘O Abayazid, come for your questioning.’ I am eager to hear from the beginning of my creation up to that day, this holy addressing, “Ya Abayazid,’ only to speak my name.” Shiddatu ‘l-farah, making for last point, enjoyment. “It was enough that my Lord says my name, ‘Ya Aba Yazid,’ even if He is sending me to Fire, I am never feeling anything! That sweetness and honor that dressed me is enough to extinguish the Fire!”

O People, so many things. Don’t think that I know something; I know nothing. But sometimes they are making a weak servant to address, like an ant by Allah’s ordering, addressing whole ants and saying:

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّمْلُ ادْخُلُوا مَسَاكِنَكُمْ لَا يَحْطِمَنَّكُمْ سُلَيْمَانُ وَجُنُودُهُ وَهُمْ لَا يَشْعُرُونَ

yaa ayyuhal namlu ‘dkhuloo masaakinakum la-yahtimannakum sulaymaanu wa junooduhoo wa hum laa yash`uroon.

One of the ants said, “O ants! Get into your habitations lest Soloman and his hosts crush you without knowing it.” ( 27:18)

That ant was hearing the holy command and became powerful and his sound was reaching through a huge valley where billions, trillions and quadrillion ants hearing it. Allah Almighty is Qaadirun Mutlaq; He can do everything or anything as He likes.

O People! Try to learn about your Lord and give His highest glorifying. Allah forgives us for the honor and praising of His most beloved and praised one, Sayyidina Muhammad (s). (Mawlana Shaykh stands.)
