27 January 2011 Lefke, Cyprus
A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem.
I was asked about events in Cairo and how to handle our beloved daughters and sons. The order has come to me to inform you of the truth. For each time and place and all conditions, there is an order and a sign. Going out to the streets is not allowed. Possibly those who have power or soldiers have permission to go out to the streets; otherwise, people should not.
Allah Jalla wa `alaa mentioned a relevant order in Surah an-Naml:
قَالَتْ نَمْلَةٌ يَا أَيُّهَا النَّمْلُ ادْخُلُوا مَسَاكِنَكُمْ لَا يَحْطِمَنَّكُمْ سُلَيْمَانُ وَجُنُودُهُ وَهُمْ لَا يَشْعُرُونَ
qaalat namlatun yaa ayyuha 'n-namlu 'dkhuloo masaakinakum laa yahtimannakum Sulaymaanu wa junooduhoo wa hum la yash`uroon.
One of the ants said, "O ants! Enter your homes unless Sulayman and his armies unknowingly trample you. (an-Naml, 27:18)
An ant has said, “O Ants! Enter your dwellings!” He did not say, “Go out to the streets,” rather he said, “Enter your dwellings, or you will be crushed by Sulayman and his soldiers.” Note that Allah sends orders that are applicable from one time to another.
If the people of Egypt had listened, they would be sheltered in safety and protected.
O People of Egypt! Do not mobilize in the streets, as going out to the streets is not enough. Allah (swt) orders this in His holy book in Surah an-Naml; that was the order. Now, if they would have appeared or gone out for one day or one hour, and said, “Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! Anta Rabbuna! Anta Hasbuna! Anta Rabbuna! Anta Hasbuna! Anta Rabbuna! Anta Hasbuna! Subhaanak!” Then those sayings would have sufficed, enough!
Now I am just a reporter, or an informer regarding recent events in Misr al-Mahrousa, “Egypt the Protected.” It is protected because in it there are the Awtaad, Aqtaab, Budalaa,
Nujabaa, Nuqabaa, and Akhyaar, and descendants of the family of Prophet (s)! Thus, for any country where people fear to enter their houses, they should pray two raka`at, sit on their prayer rug, and recite the following until the situation gets resolved, “RabbunAllah, HasbunAllah. RabbunAllah, HasbunaAllah.”
We are Your weak, poor servants, O our Lord! You are our Lord, release us my Lord from the oppressors! You have forbidden oppression and injustice upon Yourself when you said:
يا عبادي إني حرمت الظلم على نفسي وجعلته بينكم محرما فلا تظالموا
Yaa `ibaadee, innee haramtu azh-zhulma `alaa nafsi, falaa tuzhaalamoo.
O My servants! Truly I have forbidden oppression for Myself, so do not oppress (one another). (Hadith Qudsi)
If our Arab and Muslims brothers would listen to these words of Haqq they would be relieved, because Allah is capable of changing the whole situation in all of Egypt in one hour! We do not need tanks or planes, and we do not fear bombardments or nuclear weapons! One of the Awtaad is capable of pointing at a missile and it will return back to the direction from which it was fired! We have power that can encompass all the power of the people of the east and west, those who are all proud of their technology. Even one jinn is capable of taking all of their heads away and leaving them with nothing that is beneficial to them!
In the address of the ant, Man is addressed metaphorically as the ants, “O Ants!” The Tremendous Qur’an has orders that must be established for all times, places, and conditions, and those who disobey the Qur’an will be punished. We do not need planes, cars, or nuclear weapons; we do not fear! Allah says in the Qur’an to the Muslims and believers:
وَأَعِدُّواْ لَهُم مَّا اسْتَطَعْتُم مِّن قُوَّةٍ
wa a`idda lahum mastata`atum min quwattin.
Prepare your strength against them to the utmost of your power. (al-Anfaal, 8:60)
However, if the Muslims and believers are incapable, Allah (swt) says:
وَلاَ تُلْقُواْ بِأَيْدِيكُمْ إِلَى التَّهْلُكَةِ
Wa laa tulqoo bi aydikum ila ’t-tahluka.
And make not your own hands contribute to (your) destruction. (Al-Baqarah, 2:195)
Are these ayaat for human beings or for animals? These are for the servants of Allah! What is happening today is deep ignorance. Where are the `ulama in Egypt ordering people to get back to their houses and shelters, so Allah will be responsible for their protection? This is Egypt al-Mahrousa, and its people are not to be afraid even if there are a thousand men like Mubarak, or if there are a thousand tanks or two thousand planes! Laa hawla wa laa quwatta illa billah.
O People! Recite, “Laa hawla wa laa quwatta illa billahi 'l-`Aliyyu 'l-`Azheem. Laa hawla wa laa quwatta illa billahi 'l-`Aliyyu 'l-`Azheem.” This is also an order.
O my Lord! For the sake of Your blessed Prophet, release us from the oppressors. O Allah!
Let their oppression and injustice be upon each other, not practiced upon us, but upon themselves.
Allah bestows mercy, and here it can mean rain. However, too much rain could cause floods, which is a calamity. The people of Hijaaz do not realize that is what is happening to them.
O People of Hijaaz! Why are you not saying, “O our Lord! Make the heavy rain around us not be a calamity upon us, for the sake of Your Prophet of the end of time.” Those people no longer have adab and they have crossed their boundaries!
Tawbah, yaa Rabbee. Tawbah, yaa Rabbee. Tawbah, yaa Rabbee.
Allah, Allah. Allah, Allah. Allah, Allah.
