Madad, yaa Sultan, dastoor. (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) Sayyidi 'l-awwaleen wa’l-akhireen, Sayyidina Muhammad (s), zidhu `izzan wa sharafan, nooran wa surooran. Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)
O Attenders! As-salaamu `alaykum. Don't make your attending as a person who looks in a cinema to make himself happy, or to waste his time or to forget his troubles. Take your care. As much as you're taking your care, much more support from the heavens is reaching for our meeting and it is going to be easy to speak, and it is going to be easy for attenders to hear and understand. The real aspect is understanding; I am trying to understand. But if there is no heavenly support, my trying for understanding is going to be nothing, just useless. Now we are sitting here humbly and they are sitting here also, as believers. If they are not believing, that is the lowest level for Mankind. Under that level, no, you can't find. If there is no understanding, if understanding is finishing, his level is going on the lowest level.
O our Lord (swt)! Grant us to understand. O our most glorified Prophet (s)! Glorified and most honored servant through servanthood levels, we are asking for your intercession, to understand. There may be only five people, it doesn't matter. There may be ten listeners, it doesn't matter. Payment that is coming from the heavens is not taken back; that grant is for five people. Perhaps there may come a heavenly grant to six-billion people! People are not taking care and they are saying, "I don't care." The Lord of Heavens (swt) is saying to those who are attending, "Give to them." At the end of the world, the Day of Resurrection is approaching, and people are running further away from realities. The majority of people have been occupied only with material aspects; therefore, now only very few people are interested. It may be Her Majesty, the Queen, or it may be His Excellency, President Obama is interested, looking, to thinks this title is going to be forever, but in end falling down. That is ad-dunya makaarah, a world that is cheating, as life in this world is the most cheating one for Mankind. Everyone must be cheated, but some people are understanding and getting back and some people are not taking care, and ask for more and more dunya.
Every time Shaytan is cheating them and carrying them through his traps, they are getting down to darkness, to the center of Creation, now saying, "black holes." That is the imagination, because our capacity is never really reaching anything beyond the atmosphere. But they are making muzayyan, muzakhraf, embellished, decorated (about black holes). That is imagining, what they are saying. But at the beginning of this universe, they are saying it was one atom. That is also imagining, no reality. And then that one atom was just exploding, and they are saying through billions and billions of a part of a second, is just getting out and filling that space. That is a shaytanic idea. They are saying, "We are following positive knowledge." How are you saying that is positive? You are trying to cheat people, and you are not asking Who is bringing this huge universe? They are not saying there is Allah subhaanahu wa ta`ala!! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.)
They are making such a principle, and they are writing sometimes a thesis, astaghfirullah. (A guest enters.) Marhaban. Ohhh, we forgot to give salaams first, but it was something important carrying my speech to make a preface. A preface is like the White House, too many steps and without the steps you can't enter it. What we are saying now is like steps, asking to step into the real center of what we must try to speak, and what you are trying to understand. Now we are saying, as-salaamu `alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh! (laughter)
O Mankind! You are from Adam and Eve, who are from Earth. But people think that if they are reaching a title given to them by people, that is a real title. No. (...) reaching from countless creatures, and you may be proud that you are the most important creature on this planet. You may say, "I am something." You are something, you are claiming this. To be "something", you must be existing continuously. But you are reaching a limit and they say to you, "Stop here!” You are thinking that you are something and becoming so proud with your imitated titles. The Lord of Heavens (swt) Who created you is saying, “Who are you?” "I am the child of Adam and Eve." That is true, but other than that you are giving titles, “I am this, I am that,” but Adam and Eve were the first ones on Earth. Is there anything wrong with that (as your title)??
Therefore, I am saying as-salaamu `alaykum. (...) welcome to life, O small one. Just as you are born now, are you coming by yourself here? He hears you and looks, but can't give any answer to you because he is not yet ripe for understanding. That means everything is step-by-step going up or suddenly falling down to places of darkness. We are saying now, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. We are always running from shaytanic tricks, theses, all of them are for changing the beliefs of people. The beliefs of people are just built on a strong base, but their thesis is never going to sit on a strong base. No, that is their imagination that is never giving anything to you as, kayfa yadhun, as he thinks. People are thinking and giving a decision that it is true, but no one is saying for them (...) you may say, “My thesis is best or better than yours.” We have been created to be most brightened ones, bodily and spiritually.
Man's material being is a selected one and when it was complete, it was like a big aircraft swimming on water, and people were thinking it is running or swimming on water by itself. That is a wrong idea, because that huge aircraft must have in it a living one from Mankind. Not any other creature may command that huge aircraft, only a man. He is like a finger beside that huge aircraft. He is getting up, kursk, for commanding and sitting that huge aircraft under his command. He is making that huge aircraft to begin to sail, then becoming more powerful for sailing. If not for that one who is like a finger, that person who is granted authority to make that huge aircraft to move you, our physical being is much more important than a huge aircraft. It's specialty is to have a big body, like an island sailing on an ocean. But your creation is much more important, because of the captain that is coming to you when you are going through your mom's womb for 340 days. Heavenly orders are sending one. Allah (swt) is saying, "We are sending your spirit now, istalim, to take control for that new creation up to end of his life. You must look after that one."
Therefore, Man is so important and no one can know his reality, his real being. Everyone has a material body and a spiritual body. If the spiritual body is not coming to the material body, it is useless. Every day we are coming to the cemetery.
"How did he pass away, does anyone know?”
“Yes, that is a very curious occurrence. Yesterday he was walking, eating, drinking, dancing and running after dunya to take much more money, and today his feet are never carrying that one. He was the chief of the Bank of US.”
"Yesterday he was running, and today he can't even stand up. What happened?"
Yet people, whole nations are not taking any care on that part. "Yesterday we were running and today we can't move." What is that secret power? That is the responsibility for whole nations, that they are not teaching human nature. The reality of humanity is that it is the highest level of Creation! They have been created for the heavens, but when they are reaching their last point with their aircraft they are taking that captain, “Can't do, leave this.” (...) to look at what was reality, but you lost your chance because you wasted all your efforts. You lost it and you are not understanding anything as you are coming, getting back. We are sorry that you lost your chance to reach a title and to reach a level forever! You lost it, you wasted it, you are and were running after a short life and its pleasures. You were never thinking for eternal life.
We are sending so many thousands and thousands of heavenly ones to make you wake up, to think and to ask and to know, that this territory was a grant from your Creator and you lost it! Now we are saying a'oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajim because now you are finding wrong ideas everywhere: in high schools, colleges, universities, they are teaching that there is no God, no Creator. Haasha, "Heaven forbid" this will be so. Astaghfirullah. That is their main point for building youngsters. What are you saying, no god? Who put you here, to put you in orbit around the sun, that you are seeing this, and what are you seeing you are saying that this is wrong also. Reality is closed also, as it is not easy to reach realities.
Therefore, the Lord of Heavens is sending prophets. Shaytan is coming and saying, “That is imagination.” How is it imagination? They are looking, “I never saw it, I am never thinking on it, I am never understanding.'” We have just been sent for understanding, but people are running on such a thing that has no value! Yes, two months before this world was on yellow, dry grass; now you are looking at a green dressing, dressed. How can it be? They are never making the new generation understand. Wrong ideas, all of them are shaytanic teachings. Who is Darwin, who is this person, who is that one? Why are you not taking care about what Sayyidina Musa (a) said? Why are you not asking what Jesus Christ (a) said? Why are you not asking what Sayyidina Muhammad (s) said? (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.) Why are you not asking?
Why are you not preventing for whole nations that Allah Almighty put to be shepherds (leaders)? I am the weakest servant, but if Shaytan is coming against the Lord of Heavens (swt), I am making him under my feet. Understanding is a grant from the Lord of the Heavens (swt). You must understand, because tomorrow they shall take put you in a coffin and put you underground. That is an addressing for the leaders of Mankind, an addressing for shepherds leading their flocks on the wrong way. When we are going the wrong way, wolves are eating them, finishing them. Everywhere there is Shaytan. Don't say, “No, Shaytan is not anywhere.”
Someone is asking me, "Shaykh, what is your idea, is Shaytan everywhere?” Or, “What is your opinion, is there a place on Earth where there is no Shaytan, where he can't get in?" I must say, “Salafi `ulamas, I don't know.” Salafi `ulamas, from Saudi Arabia, I am asking do you know some place where Shaytan is not coming? They are saying, “I don’t know.” They may be in Mecca al-Mukarramah? “Yes.” Can be in Madinat al-Munawwara? “Yes.” No fighting, we are attenders from up to down. How many shaytans? It is mentioned in holy books, are there billions of shaytans or one Shaytan? “One Shaytan.” One Shaytan, can be everywhere, in mosques, in churches, in abbeys, in synagogues? Do you know that Shaytan is not there, coming? “No, sir.” One Shaytan is going to be everywhere? Salafi `ulamas saying, “Yes.”
On this I may not be too much of a wise person, and my age is reaching to 90. I am asking to know only, if one Shaytan may be everywhere? I am saying to believe that the Prophet (s) may be everywhere, but you are not going to accept. If I am saying this, you are saying to me, “You are going to be mushrik (polytheist)." But you are giving to Shaytan that authority to be everywhere, but not giving it to the Prophet (s) to be everywhere! How are you saying to me mushrik?
وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ فِيكُمْ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ
W `alamoo anna feekum Rasoolullah,
Know that Rasoolullah is in you. (49:7)
Ayatun kareema, this (noble verse of holy Qur'an) is for addressing Sahaaba (r) but coming for all time, haadir, present, meaning the Seal of Prophets (s) every time is with you. You are on the wrong way! You must learn from real ones who are now present every time, you must look after them to learn something; don't say, "I am Salafi `ulama."
May Allah forgive us and grant us an understanding. Everything depends on understanding, and we are trying to make people understand. I am a weak one, but I am trying to give something from the east to the west, from north to south.
Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, `Azeez Allah
Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Kareem Allah
Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Subhaan Allah
Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Sultaan Allah
I am nothing, but I may ask another question for Salafi `ulama. What about Sayyidina Musa (a) and Sayyidina ‘Isa (a)? They left their nations, but they are with the Seal of Prophets. (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.)
(Mawlana Shaykh hums.)
Hayyy, hayyyy, hayyy, hayyyy, hayyy
Huuuu huuuuu huuuuu huuuu huuuu
Huu huuu huuu huuu huuu
Yaa Rabbee! As-salaamu `alaykum. I am a weak servant, I am not preparing things for speaking, what is coming I may say. Allah, Allah.
