Suhbah After Jumu`ah Salaat
As-salaamu `alaykum. Madad, yaa Rijaalullah. (Mawlana Shaykh makes du'a.) Yaa Saahib al-Imdaad! Madad yaa Sultanu ‘l-Anbiyaa! Madad yaa Sultanu 'l-Awliyaa!
Who are present, asking to hear and follow the right way that the Seal of Prophets (s) brought! We say, “A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani ‘r-rajim. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem. O Allah! Give me strength over my weakness!”
O People! Say, “We are weak ones.” O Allah! Grant us from Your heavenly blessings so that we are able to stand up for Your Lordship. You are the Lord of all Creation and all things are under Your heavenly majestic powers. We are so weak on a small planet. Yaa Rabbee! O our Lord, let us be only Your servants who obey Your heavenly commands, as Shaytan is urging people to be the worst ones!
O People! Hear Allah Almighty’s orders, and try to be His weak servants. Change your direction if you are following in Shaytan’s way and come back to the right way that Allah Almighty has shown and sent to you through His holy prophets! Whoever follows that way will reach a happy life here and Eternal Life there. All prophets came to say this, from the beginning with Adam (a) up to the end with the Seal of Prophets (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits)
All Mankind! O People! Come and follow the heavenly ways that have come to you, that bring you to heavenly levels, heavenly enlightened, endless territories and endless paradises, through your Lord’s never-ending dominions. They are never-ending, never-ending! You will be there forever, up to Eternity, with no end.
O People, Mankind! What are you doing? Listen, try to understand and know for Whom we are living. It is very important. Listen, O Mankind! For whom are you working? Who are you trying to reach and for what? Say! All nations and all of Mankind are trying to do something or to reach some target. What is that target? So many people have gotten tons of gold and countless paper money, and what happened to them?
We ask the tyrants, what are you trying to be? They say, “O Shaykh! For six years I was working, trying to be Number One in this world.” He only thought about being Number One in the Islamic world; he never asked to be a follower or a complete, true believer in His Lord. He tried to reach material levels that no one had ever reached before. And what happened? He was killed with wooden sticks, beaten to death, a bad end that no one likes.
O People! What was he thinking? I am asking all people, for whom do you live and which target are you trying to reach? What are you asking for? Now the majority of people, perhaps we can say all the people, only run after their daily provision and fight about it, saying, “Now we are bankrupt. We have no money and we only ask for something to eat because we are hungry.” Billions of people are dying under heavenly strikes. Here, on a small island (Cyprus), people try to find something to eat and drink, then they live to enjoy themselves in the moment, because seeking enjoyment is the next level. First they ask, “How are we going to satisfy our hunger?” and then they think, “How can we enjoy ourselves?” Both ways are wrong! Most people’s highest desires are to find what they can eat and enjoy, and to satisfy bad sexual desires , and they are not trying to learn how to be good ones.
O People! Come and be good servants! Try to be a good so people will say, “This is a good one.” Your Lord’s first heavenly order is that you be a good servant! Now people ask for so much enjoyment from things that are available in this world, but they can’t have all that they want. They have changed from the first step to the second step, and ask to have things just to enjoy themselves.
For example, now people everywhere are full of accusations and complaints, and therefore, they never reach higher levels and their physical desires make them come down. They are between two levels: one is calling them to Allah Almighty and the second is Shaytan, saying, “O People! Come with me, enjoy yourselves and don't think of anything else!” This is true for all nations. I am sorry to say the Islamic world is also trying to follow western desires and now heavenly curses are coming on them!
O People! Ask for forgiveness and that you are granted to be servants and to be protected here and to have an Eternal Life full of enjoyment!
O People! I am tiring. They are making me speak and, therefore, I can speak for the next week, but the benefit is for people to think about what has been said here and to follow it. Tawbah yaa Rabbee! Tawbah yaa Rabbee, astaghfirullah! This is the last week of the month of Safar al-Khayr. “Khayr’ means the goodness that comes on believers, and sadness is coming on other nations.
O People! Come and ask; we may ask for forgiveness and heavenly blessings, for the honor of the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits)
May Allah (swt) grant you, and weak ones like me, to be on the good ways that His prophets brought to people from the Heavens. If we are not following heavenly ways we are not going to be happy here or Hereafter. Do not follow western values, but try to follow the eastern way instead as that is noor, but in the west there is darkness through which goodness disappears or loses its personality. Come and look for personality through eastern countries; that is the sun shining!
