Suhbah after Jumu'ah
As-salaamu `alaykum, as-salaamu `alaykum, as-salaamu `alaykum! Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Huuu. (Mawlana Shaykh stands.)
Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, la ilaaha illa-Llah, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, wa lillahi 'l-hamd! Alfu salaat, alfu salaam `alayka wa `ala aalika wa sahaabatika yaa khayru'l-khalqillahi 'l-ajma`een wa `ala Sayyidi 'l-anbiyaa wa 'l-mursaleen wa 'l-awliya as-saaliheen. Hu. A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem. Rabbuna y`afuw `an maa yureed wa yahkum maa yashaa. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)
O People! Welcome, listeners. All of us are servants and we must first say, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem, to make Shaytan away, because Shaytan is asking for an occasion to put people in trouble and in unhappiness. Shaytan is asking people not to be happy, but (remain) always in miseries and sufferings. Huuu. Dastoor, yaa Sultanu 'l-Awliya, our Grandshaykh who is in charge now for looking after everything on this planet; he is responsible for everything happening in this world!
O People! Try to learn and to know and to follow; you have been ordered to know about yourself and you have been ordered to know about your Creator!
O Mankind! You have been ordered to be in charge of goodness and to be good ones. We are like wild trees in a garden or a hill or a mountain. The owner of that mountain or plain is looking and says, "That is a wild cherry tree, so we must bring a good cherry tree to put a graft on it so that the wild branch is getting to be a good branch." If you are living, it is a mountain with so many kinds of wild trees. We are on the plain of this world and we are like wild trees or wild animals. And the Lord of Heavens has granted to Man an honor that has not been granted to any other creature. He is asking from all of Mankind to not be wild people, they must be the best ones! And the Lord of Heavens, our Creator, is asking Mankind to be in a perfect condition, to be saved from wildness and He is sending trainers to make people into good ones. May Allah forgives us. May Allah grant us understanding of heavenly messages!
Mankind must try to know their missions; for what have they been created? Yesterday he was not here and tomorrow he is not going to be here; it is only a short time, and in that short time he can understand his importance, mission and identity, and what he should do. If we are going to learn everything about this world through our books, which are the fruits of our minds, we are in need of some people who know what is light and what is darkness, but yet you are surrounded from four directions and have been veiled. We don't know what is behind that veil and we are sitting in a darkness. He created day and night to make people understand something. Nighttime is dark. What is darkness and what are lightened territories? You know it or you don't know. You can't open as long as you are thinking about it. They are closed treasures and your mind's capacity, by thinking, is not enough to understand.
There is a daily showing for Mankind, zhulumaat wa 'n-noor, there is darkness and there is light also, but you are not knowing what the reality of lights is. We are seeing that there is a sun in the skies, giving lights, but we are not knowing what is giving lightening and how it is going to be. There are lights coming on this world. At the same time, our Earth is in lights on one side and in darkness on the other side, but we are not understanding that there are darkness and lights at the same time. The hearts of awliya are enlightened with Unknown Knowledges, and Mankind on Earth can't know about these realities. Some people have been granted and can understand about lights and darkness. This is an ocean and if we are going up to next week, we are not going to finish!
We are something on this world. There are continents and oceans, countless creatures with different appearances and creations for them. Who is giving them their forms? Everything has a special design. There are so many people here and everyone has a special design, everything has a special design. Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar! Do you understand what I am saying? Their sounds also are so different. Even though they are Mankind, some of them like a donkey, some of them like a fox, astaghfirullah al-`azheem, some like a falcon.
What about the position of men and women? The world of men is something else, and the world of women, something else. If you are putting women through a man's plain, they can't do anything; they should escape. They are asking for their world. They can't live in a man's area (because) it is different than a women's area. Everyone is living through their dunya. This is one dunya, but through this one dunya you can find two dunyas. One dunya belongs to men and is different from dunya of women. But Shaytan is now making men and women on the same level with no difference. What is that foolishness? The dunya where women are living is a hundred percent different from a man's world, but fasaad, corruption is making men and women equal. Ptuuuh (spit), astaghfirullahi 'l-`azheem! Equality of men and women is the biggest lie and the biggest ignorance. The world of women is a hundred percent different from the world of men. The Lord of Heavens knows. He is asking to take men and woman away from the darkness that belongs to them. The darkness of men is different from the darkness of women. He is sending His heavenly lights to make a clear identity between men and women.
Why is He sending His prophets? They are making me to speak at the beginning on this point, that everyone is like a wild tree in need of grafting. If you are accepting the grafting of that one, you may find your way to your real being through the lights in the Divine Presence. If not, you may be in darkness here and Hereafter, and not understand anything. Now the whole world is in wildness. All people are getting to be wild ones and the Heavenly Commander who is appointed for this world knows how he is dealing with people to take them from wildness to be good, kind beings. If leaving, it will be like a wild tree. If accepting the lights from heavens, you are going to be in good positions, your real being appearing, and you are knowing about yourself, about someone else. You are going to be a sweet one, or you should be a dirty one and (have) no taste.
That is the reason Allah Almighty is sending, to make that graft for people. Now people are running away from prophets. You can only find wild people on Earth now, like wild animals. We are asking to make people to understand the real position of Mankind, how to be good ones. That is the importance of prophets. Therefore, follow the prophets to be a perfect one. If not, you are remaining through your wildness endlessly. All wildness on Earth now is because people are not taking care of heavenly teachings; they are refusing and they are unhappy. There is no taste remaining for men and women living on this planet, because taste is only granted from heavens; you can't take it from Earth.
Therefore, as long as people are refusing prophets and following their fox, you can't find a restful and tasteful one on this planet. And this is a beginning of Divine jazaa, punishment. Punishment is never stopping until you are following prophets. The Seal of Prophets was saying, "If all prophets (were) here (there would be) no chance to follow their holy books, (as) they only may follow me." Allah's blessings, His high glory for the Seal of Prophets (s). It is a long story, but I think it is enough; take your lessons, take what is needed for you! Try to be sweet ones, not to be dirty ones here and Hereafter!
O our Lord, forgive us for the sake of Your most honored one, Sayyidina Muhammad (s).
(Mawlana Shaykh sings.)
Allahumma salli wa sallim `alaa
Nabiyyina Muhammad `alayhi 's-salaam
Salaatan tadoomu w 'ahtuhda ilayh
Maa mara layaalin wa toola 'd-dawaam
ashhhadu an laa ilaha ill-Lllah wa ashhadu anna muhamamdan `abduhu wa habeebuhu wa rasoolah
...allahuma thabitna `ala al-haqq, allahuma thabbithu `ala 'l-haqq
(Mawlana Shaykh gives a young boy baya` and names him Ibrahim.)
He is a good one. Mashaa-Allah, mashaa-Allah.
