(Mawlana Shaykh stands) Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, laa ilaaha illa-Llah, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, wa lillahi 'l-hamd! Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, laa ilaaha illa-Llah, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, wa lillahi 'l-hamd! SubhaanAllah w ’alhamdulillah wa laa ilaaha illa-Llahu wa Allahu Akbar wa laa hawla wa laa quwatta illa billahi 'l-`Aliyyu 'l-`Azheem. Alfu salaat, alfu salaam `alaa habeebillah, noor al-`Arshillah, Sayyidi 'l-Awwaleen wa ’l-Akhireen, Sayyidina Muhammadan wa `ala aalihi wa sahbihi ajma`een. Ishfa` lana yaa Sayyidi 'l-Awwaleen wa ’l-Akhireen. A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. (Mawlana Shaykh sits)
As-salaamu `alaykum, ayyuha ’l-hadiroon! As-salaam `alaa man `ittaba al-hudaa!
O our Attenders! Throughout the east and west, keep your face, and keep your honor.
O Mankind! Keep your honor that has been granted to you by your Creator, Allah Almighty. No one can give honor except our Creator. You may try to take honor in this temporary life, and you may think if people give you honor it is something, but truly it is nothing! If a person is asking to reach honor from people, it is going to be dust, as it is not real but only temporary honor. For example, people are happy to become presidents, ministers, or chief ministers. I am not speaking about kings and sultans; the honor of kings, sultans, and emperors is not given to them by people, no! Common people don't have any honor, but no-mind people are running to take honor from the public. The public does not have honor, so what can they give you?
You are asking for an emerald, ruby, diamond, pearl, or sapphire from people who only have black stones which they may paint and give to you, saying, "Take this, it is my pleasure to give you this very important pearl." However, they only have stones like those you walk on! Man is so foolish!
Now people have reached a level where they do not understand the real value of precious stones. Democracy is dirtiness, because people are running after it and (politicians) say, "Give your valuable stones (votes) to us. There is a basket, and who accepts us may put their red precious stones here." Some of them are angry, saying, "We are not putting that for you, we are putting a dirty colored stone on the other side (voting for the opposite party)." People’s mentalities are just finished, and that is a very important point!
Shaytan has cheated Mankind, saying, "You must hold elections! We must be happy with whoever is bringing votes!" People color it, saying, "Put the opposition there.” Both of them are stones, but their colors are different. Therefore, when we are sitting on a chair in our democratic system, our presidents are chosen by so many foolish people who do not understand red from blue. We must say, “Put that ruby here.” Then the (elected official) says, “O People! We have been chosen by the majority of our foolish ones who brought us and gave us power! We have more red stones, and our opposition lost because their stones are not real, they are blue."
Is there no intelligence for 21st century people? (The democratic system) makes citizens like donkeys who do not understand anything. The democratic system is mindless. Shaytan is cheating you, giving you colored stones as if they are rubies! Now the whole world follows this system and is coming down because the pillars people give elected leaders are rotten and crumbling. You may look now, beginning from Tunis, Algeria, Sudan, Egypt, Lebanon, Libya, Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Yemen, and Pakistan, all hoping now to form democratic governments. Where is Islam? How are they Muslims?
Now heavenly cursing and warnings are beginning to come down on the masses. First floods came on continents, and we heard they are coming down on Indonesia. Where is your technology to save you? You have so many votes to take power, but where is your power? Show it! If it is snowing, you can't stop it; if it is raining, you can't stop it; if there are hurricanes, you can't run away; if volcanoes erupt, you can't run away! Yet what is this foolishness from Mankind now?
The hearts of so many chosen presidents are now beating wildly, as they do not know if they may live up to nightfall or the next morning, and they are afraid. Fear is not something material; it comes from Heavens and runs everywhere, but people are never accepting advice. Shaytan is running after them because they are drunk ones. Leave that, and ask for mercy from Allah Almighty! Follow the Seal of Prophets (s) to be saved here and Hereafter! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits)
First of all, the shaking is coming to Arab countries, because they are saying, "We are Arabs," and not saying, "We are Muslims." They do not believe in holy rules that reached us, rather they are running after Shaytan's rules. Therefore, they are afraid! I am saying to Arab presidents, if they like to save themselves, the Holy Qur'an has clarified for everyone and provides a safe way for every situation. Allah Almighty is sending a rope for every trouble that people may fall into in order to take them out.
To Libyan, Sham, Egyptian, and Tunisian Arabs: they have recited this holy verse a thousand times without thinking about what Allah Almighty is saying. (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Asta`eedhu billah. I am addressing all Arab leaders and nations! What is Allah Almighty saying to them? Asta`eedhu billah.
فَإِن لَّمْ تَجِدُوا فِيهَا أَحَدًا فَلَا تَدْخُلُوهَا حَتَّى يُؤْذَنَ لَكُمْ وَإِن قِيلَ لَكُمُ ارْجِعُوا فَارْجِعُوا هُوَ أَزْكَى لَكُمْ وَاللَّهُ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ عَلِيمٌ
Fain lam tajidoo feeha ahadan fa-laa tadkhulooha hatta yu’dhana lakum wa in qeela lakumu ’rji`oo fa ’rji`oo huwa azkaa lakum w ’Allahu bimaa ta`maloona `aleem.
If you find no one in the house, enter not until permission is given to you: if you are asked to go back, go back: that makes for greater purity for yourselves: and Allah knows well all that yo do.. (Al-Nour, 24:28)
(Mawlana Shaykh sits) That is ayatul-kareemah. `Ulama of Azhar, Tunis, Libya, Shaam, Hijaaz, Yemen, Baghdad, Egypt, Sudan may think on this fatwa.
Do you understand, or not? Allah Almighty is saying, for example, when you visit someone and reach the door of the owner’s home, if they say to you, "Go away, don't come in," you must go away. This is the holy command of Allah (swt). Yaa `ulama, why are you not reminding your presidents of this holy order of Allah? wa in qeela lakumu ’rji`oo fairji`oo "Go away!" If your citizens are saying to you, "Go away," then you must go away, and if not you will be responsible. If any bad thing is coming on you, you will be responsible. If they kill you, it is from your falsehood! If people are saying, "We don't like you here," then you must not be there.
This is a fatwa that particularly Azhar `ulama may bring. `Ulama of Tunis, Sudan, Yemen and Baghdad are Arabs, and they know this. If it is wrong, they may say so to me. If you open the Holy Qur’an, what does it say? “If they say, ‘Go away,’ you must go away.” Your name is not stamped there forever, and if people don't like you to be their president or sultan, then go away. If anything reaches to you from punishment or harm, you are responsible for your egos and Allah Almighty will ask you, "Were you the only person from the whole ummah (to lead them)? Why did you insist, 'I shall sit here, I am not going.'” If people say, “We don't like you as our commander, go away!” then you must go away. That is important.
O Azhar `ulama! If you are not giving that fatwa, you will be punished on the Day of Resurrection with the worst punishment! Common people do not know, but you know from Whom you are fearing: Allah Almighty is saying this. Why do you fear an ordinary person? You must fear Allah! If your people say, “Go away,” then go away. You are abusing power and you will be killed. And now there is trouble everywhere. Americans are Christians and have the same rule: if they say to their leader, "We don't like you, Obama. Go away," then he must go away. If Russians say, “O our president! Get away, and leave the chair,” then he must get up and leave. That is the safe way for you; if not, you will be punished here and Hereafter.
May Allah forgive us.
This is such a thing coming to my heart for all nations, especially for the Muslim world. If they say, "We like you to be our sultan," okay. If they say, “We don't like you to be our sultan,” (then he must leave). If the majority are keeping him and a small group of people are asking him to go away, it is not true (that he must leave), as the Holy Prophet (s) said:
`alaykum bi ’s-sawadi ’l-`azham.
Where there is a majority, be with them.
Haqq! Arab `ulamas are understanding, saying, “We are saahib al-`ilm.” Where is your `ilm? Give a fatwa. I am asking you about your presidents and parliaments; from where are you bringing that parliament? From Holy Qur’an? Say! Therefore, there is a hadith, al-fitnatu takhruj minhum min al-`ulama wa ilayhim ta`ood, coming on their heads.
O People! Try to be servants of your Lord, our Creator, and fear only Him. He is the Real Protector; no one else is protecting us here or Hereafter.
Tawbah, yaa Rabbee, tawbah yaa Rabbee, tawbah yaa Rabbee, tawbah astaghfirullah. Shukr yaa Rabbee, shukr yaa Rabbee, shukr yaa rabbee. O our Lord! Grant that we are followers of Your holy commands. Those are the real commands, heavenly commands, then you will be saved here and Hereafter. May Allah forgive us, for the honor of the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s). (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits)
The whole Arab world and other parts of the Muslim world may translate and understand what has been said here. It is not something that I have prepared to say to you, but it is from holy people who are making a weak servant address all nations. I am not a different one, I am from common people, but they are making me address all nations, particularly those in the Islamic world who are on the wrong way. May Allah forgive us.
