Keep Good Manners with Each Other and Don't Be Arrogant

Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani

14 August 2020 Fenton Zawiya, Michigan

I am feeling that there is something going on making everyone to be on their tiptoes. Everyone has to look at himself, as the speaker (of Jumu`ah) said, and to do istighfaar. There are some people not keeping this way. We have to be careful in dealing with our brothers and sisters. Always the best are those who carry the responsibility and deliver it to others in order for them to know what is going on.

Alhamdulillah, we are trying to be here, coming from far away to carry the responsibility of the tariqah.

Everyone must sit and think about what he has done in 24 hours and if you are not feeling happy check what you did to make your brothers and sisters unhappy with you. What have you done? Don't say, "I am clean, I have no problems." No! Everyone must know this place is for everyone.

I am hearing there are some people who are responsible during the day. During the day you have to carry a book of what Mawlana Shaykh has taught and read from it and learn. Alhamdulillah, Mawlana Shaykh left a lot of information. If something happened to me, you are all going to fall apart.

He got angry. He got angry. I don't want to see people creating unhappiness. People are fed up in their relationships with others because they think of themselves as responsible and they want to guide the rest of the people in tariqah. No one has this power yet, it might come, but it might take time. Keep love to each other and peace to each other, it will help you and it helps us. Don't make yourself out as a genius and don't make yourself as if you know more than the others.

I can point to those people who are doing and saying and speaking some things to show the others as lower than them and they are higher. There is no one higher than the others. Don't create fitna, dissension.

You can pass this short information on, that makes you unhappy during your time.

Alhamdulillah that Allah swt connected us with Mawlana Shaykh Nazim and Mawlana Shaykh `Abd Allah. There are many shuyookh and they have mureeds and students and they are disciplined people. You can go to them and they will be happy. If you are not going to keep adab and respect to each other it is better that you go. If you keep adab and respect and discipline, Allah will be happy with you, the Prophet (s) will be happy with you and Mawlana Shaykh will be happy with you.

Everyone is under a microscope. Awliyaullah are looking at you. Do they give us discipline and consider us from people who are disciplined or not? If they found we are from those who have discipline we will be successful, else we will not be considered successful. I will not mention names now but there are some people who are thinking themselves superior, they come and they go during the day and nights wasting their time and who do not have love for each other. They show that they have love but we know they do not.

Keep good, Allah will be good with us, the Prophet (s) will be good with us and Mawlana will be good with us.

I will renew your baya` because you lost it. And keep adab with each other. You can raise your hand [Mawlana recites Ayatu 'l-baya`]

When we make baya` we are showing our love to Allah and that will be enough to know that our previous baya` disappeared.

[Mawlana recites Ayatu 'l-baya`]

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يُبَايِعُونَكَ إِنَّمَا يُبَايِعُونَ اللَّهَ يَدُ اللَّهِ فَوْقَ أَيْدِيهِمْ فَمَن نَّكَثَ فَإِنَّمَا يَنكُثُ عَلَى نَفْسِهِ وَمَنْ أَوْفَى بِمَا عَاهَدَ عَلَيْهُ اللَّهَ فَسَيُؤْتِيهِ أَجْرًا عَظِيمًا

Lo! those who swear allegiance unto thee (Muhammad), swear allegiance only unto Allah. The Hand of Allah is above their hands. So whosoever breaketh his oath, breaketh it only to his soul’s hurt; while whosoever keepeth his covenant with Allah, on him will He bestow immense reward. (Surat al-Fath, 48:10)

We begin with a new moment after a fresh baya` with a better outlook. Awliyaullah are taking account of everyone so we have to respect everyone. Bi-hurmatil-habeeb bi-hurmati 'l-Fatiha.

I don't want to repeat what I said, or to add more or less. You know if you are doing well or not. There are some people doing very well, and there are some people doing good, and there some people acting good showing they are good, but they are not.

W 'alhamdulillah rabbi 'l-`alameen al-Fatiha.

People coming from outside hearing about us and instead of showing them love and respect we show them something else. This is not discipline.

Bi hurmati 'l-Habeeb bi hurmati 'l-Fatihah.
