(Mawlana Shaykh stands) Dastoor yaa Sayyidee, madad.
Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, `Azeez Allah
Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Subhaan Allah
Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Sultan Allah
Zidhu yaa Rabbee `izzan wa sharafan nooran wa surooran, sultaanan wa ridwaana. (Mawlana Shaykh sits) Thumma as-salaat wa 's-salaam `alaa jamee`i 'l-anbiya wa 'l-mursaleen wa `alaa awliyaullah as-saliheen. Huuu. And we are saying, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem! Aydna, yaa Rabb! (Mawlana Shaykh sits)
We are weak servants. Thumma salaamu `alayk yaa Saahib az-Zamaan. Thumma salaamu `alayk yaa `ibaadAllah as-Saliheen, awtaad and aqtaab who are responsible for everything happening on this planet. Amidoona, help us, O holy ones! We are so weak, but our intention is to destroy falsehood, baatil, nothing else. That is the topmost last horizon or limit that we are asking, to fight against Shaytan and its followers.
O Salafi `ulamas! Is there anything wrong? Wahhabi people are no-minded, but you have something. Is it true that our last aim must be to destroy falsehood, baatil, and raise the flag of Haqq over the whole world? We are never happy if there is one person on Earth who symbolizes baatil or following the wrong way! Are you happy to be with people on the wrong way, Salafi `ulamas? What are you saying? And how is your fight to take away falsehood? We must understand.
O our Attenders! As-salaamu `alaykum! Hear, listen and obey! What is our aim in this life? You must know it and do it! Therefore, I am asking Salafi `ulamas, what is your aim by saying, "We are Salafi `ulamas"? What is your aim? You are `ulamas, but you must know what is your aim when you are saying about yourselves, "We are Salafi `ulamas." I understand, but through your knowledge what is your intention? For what are you using your knowledge? Tell me, and let the whole world hear that.
O Azhari `ulamas, Baghdad `ulamas, Sham `ulamas, ajami `ulamas, Hindi `ulamas, Ottoman `ulamas, say, what is your aim? What do you want to do by your knowledge? Make it clear! Do you think it is to write books or memorize hundreds or thousands of ahadeeth? It is okay, but you must say what is your aim by learning hundreds or thousands of hadeeth nabawi shareef, the Holy Prophet's traditions. And most of you are also haafiz or qaari of Holy Qur'an, but we have a question: what is your main aim through your knowledge, what are you asking to do? Say! That point is very important because people do not know, which means you are not making it clear. Perhaps you are never thinking on that point, but it is the most important aim for Islam, deen al-haqq, the true, heavenly religion.
For what purpose did Allah Almighty send so many prophets and finally the Seal of Prophets, (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Sayyidina Muhammad (s)? What is the aim? (Mawlana Shaykh sits) You are not making it clear. You are teachers asking to teach people, but what are you teaching? If you do not know the real aim, what are you teaching? That is a very important point and we are asking the whole Muslim world, and I am asking His Holiness, the Pope, and His Holiness, the Chief Rabbi. What is the aim that the Lord of Heavens sent the Torah to Musa (a)? Say, Chief Rabbi, say! No answer. Ask Moses (a), "What was your aim?" Wasn't he knowing his mission? It is so clear! He was sent to Pharaoh, who represented Shaytan, making people worship him. That is false, baatil. Therefore, the Lord of Heavens sent Moses to Pharaoh. Your Holiness, Chief Rabbi, say what was the aim for sending the Torah to Moses, and after Pharoah passed away, the flag of Truth went up and the flag of Shaytan was under the feet, finished! That was Sayyidina Musa's mission!
I am asking His Holiness, the Chief Rabbi, are you following the way of Moses? What are you doing? "Palestine, Palestine, Palestine." Is this world only Palestine? If you are making a stage in Palestine, is your last mission finished? Why are you not saying the truth, that Moses came to take away every wrong way and its representative, so many pharaohs, not only one pharaoh. Allah Almighty sent the Torah with Moses for all pharaohs, so many that you can't count them. What are you doing? You are fighting in ard al-muqaddas, the Holy Land. It is not the aim to reach to the Holy Land and build the Temple of Solomon, but you are ignorant ones! You recite the Old Testament, the Torah, but do not understand the aim of Allah Almighty in His calling Sayyidina Musa. So many times Allah Almighty's kaleem, words to Moses (a), were, "Come and listen to Me." You are such honored people, but you do not understand your honor. You think your honor is to come and live in Palestine to build the Temple of Solomon; that is your understanding of the Holy Torah. Shame on you, killing so many people!
And our Muslims also are on the wrong way, not understanding the real mission of the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits) Now Muslims think their mission is tawsiya`, expansion, of al-Haraamayn ash-Shareefayn, the Two Holy Sanctuaries (Mecca and Madinah). (Mawlana Shaykh holds an illustrated book.) Look at the Ka`aba (in this illustration); is there any building around it? That is Haram ash-Shareef as it was in the beginning. Make it clear for people to understand, does the Ka`aba need any expansion? Why are you not keeping the Holy Ka`aba as it was by the holy water of Zamzam Shareef? People were visiting, making Hajj, and no one asked for a passport from them, or money that you must pay. No one asked them, "What are you doing here?" They knew they were coming to give their most high respect because it is the House of the Lord!
Muslims, Christians and Jewish brothers, we are on the wrong way! Therefore, dunya is going to be like Jahannam, Hell. In those times, people were so content and in peace. Don't say, "Time just changed and we must help the Lord of this House by making a big area for visitors of the Holy Ka`aba." What is that? Allah, the Lord of Heavens, is Mutlaq, Able, and Qaadir, The Absolute Powerful One! He can put in 10x10 meter area all the world's people!
O Salafi `ulamas! Why are you not saying this? Every year you make a new extension, for what? What are your beliefs for the Lord of Ka`aba Mu`azzam, subhaan Allahi 'l-`Aliyyu 'l-`Azheem?
O our Attenders! People are going on the wrong way and our `ulamas think they are followers of Salaaf as-Saalih, but where are Salaaf as-Saalih? Are Salaaf as-Saalih giving you a fatwah to destroy Haraam Shareef and make that extension? It doesn't matter, but we are coming in this time to rabbis who think the main aim of Judaism is to be in Sacred Holy Land and build a temple. What is that foolishness? Did Moses come for that reason? Allah Almighty said to him, "Go to Pharaoh and teach him the real position, personality, and mission of My servants."
Shame to Salafi `ulamas, Azhar ash-Shareef `ulamas, Sham Shareef `ulamas, Baghdad `ulamas, Indian `ulamas, Turkish `ulamas, Egypt `ulamas, Libya `ulamas and other Muslim territories, shame on all of them for thinking the main aim of Allah Almighty's order is to go to Palestine, to keep that building and to be there! It is not the aim, but our `ulamas do not understand the Old Testament, the New Testament, or anything from the Holy Qur'an, so shame on them!
O People! Allah Almighty sent all prophets against Shaytan. Where is Shaytan to carry that one out, not to come among believers? What are you doing? What is your understanding to say you are Salafi `ulamas? Wahhabi people are no-minded, not understanding, and only fundamentalists. Is that from the Holy Qur'an or Salaaf as-Saalih? You are on the wrong way, trying to make others on the wrong way and to make people leave the right way to Allah, Siraat al-Mustaqeem, The Straight Path!
O `Ulamas! Biggest shame is, the Seal of Prophets (s) first came to take away the age of jahiliyyah. The Holy Qur'an shows, asta`eedhu billah, for women: (Mawlana Shaykh stands)
وَقَرْنَ فِي بُيُوتِكُنَّ وَلَا تَبَرَّجْنَ تَبَرُّجَ الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ الْأُولَى
Wa qarna fee buyootikunna wa laa tabarraj tabarajj al-jahiliyyati 'l-oola.
Stay in your homes and don't decorate yourselves (women) as the decoration of the First Era of Ignorance. (Al-Ahzab, 33:33)
(Mawlana Shaykh sits) Jahiliyyati 'l-oola means the "First Period of Ignorance." That means there is a second period; that will reach before the Day of Resurrection, when the honored dressing of Islam will be taken away and they will be ignorant people before the Seal of Prophets (s).
O People! Try to learn as we must learn. Don't be proud ones; all proud ones are in hells. You must learn. May Allah forgive me, you, and everyone that never understands what is the true way and follows jaahil, ignorant ones. O our Lord! Send us someone to teach us the real aim for sending all prophets and finally the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits)
(33 minutes) (1199) Good, because today people are enjoying, but every enjoying and pleasure that people are running after....coming to make them unhappy. Beware our attenders, don't run after dunya but come and listen and learn and try to be a good servant. May Allah forgive us.
(Mawlana Shaykh speaks to Hajjah Naziha on the phone.)
We will bombard them and destroy baatil with the barakah of Shaykh Hisham!
(Mawlana Shaykh prays two raka`at Salat ash-Shukr.)
