Leave Your Imagination and Come to Reality

Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

1 March 2010 Lefke, Cyprus

Bismillah, yaa Sayyidee. (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) Laa ilaaha illa-Llah Muhammadun Rasoolullah `alayhi salaatullah, `alayhi salaamullah. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

Dastoor yaa Sayyidina, yaa Sultan al-Awliya, madad. Allah, Allah! As-salaamu `alayka yaa Saahib al-Waqt (Master of Time), yaa Sahib al-Imdaad (Master of Support).

We are giving our salute to the qutb, pole of this world, who has been granted and is a chosen one for the Last Days, in which our life is going to end. When we say “our life” we mean the lives of all the people living now, as they are now approaching the Day of Resurrection. Madad, yaa Saahib al-Imdaad. We are so needy for support from the heavenly ones because that heavenly support is something, but material support is nothing!

Billions of people are asking support from dunya, from their kingdoms or from their richness or from their treasures. They are asking for a support, but that is never giving them the support they are thinking it should give. No kingdom is giving any support, nor any treasures are giving a person any support. What were they asking support for? They were asking to be on this world forever. Forever! A man who is tasting a refreshment of life is never asking to use it in what they are asking, to be forever. They were thinking their kingdoms or sultanates or treasures may support them on that point, and they should be forever on their thrones through their treasures. But Shaytan baynahum, is among them. But such a long distance they are asking, and a means of richness or sultanates or kingdoms is so weak! As a person may say, “I like a support from my kingdom or my treasures,” but it is like putting that on an ant to hold this world! Can it be? Perhaps it can be, but what people are asking is to be forever, not to be passing away or losing life's treasures, and it is impossible. It can't be; it is impossible, yes.

Therefore, believers are knowing something that unbelievers are never knowing. Believers are understanding something but unbelievers are never understanding anything. That is the difference between believers and unbelievers.

O People! As-salaamu `alaykum! Listeners, take some advice. As Prophet Muhammad (s) said, الدين النصيحة ad-deenu naseeha, “Religion is advice.” If you are believers, you must try to know the meaning of religion. What is religion? Ad-deenu naseeha. Religion means “advice,” what to do, and people giving support and advising. If you are not following advice, there is no support for you here and Hereafter. Therefore, our listeners, whole believers, come and believe!

If you like something for your future that sometimes you are dreaming or khayaal, imagining, if you would like that imagination to be a reality, you must listen and you must understand. That means you must keep heavenly advice. No one is an advice from people of the Earth, no. There may be philosophers, but philosophers are on zero point! At nighttime they are imagining something and in the daytime it is changing. When they are hungry, they are thinking something and when they are getting full their understanding is changing. In summertime their thinking, their ideas are something and when winter is comes, it is changing! Therefore, if people are running after philosophers, they should be like them, idiotic ones! Whole philosophers are idiotic ones because they are not tartaah (resting), to make your back rest against the wall, to keep you relaxed, yes. They are asking to be always in action (always changing). Reality is the only thing never changing in the daytime, nighttime, summertime, or wintertime, but they are not accepting Reality; they are running after an imaginary world!

That imagining is also from Shaytan. Shaytan was imagining something, but it was not Reality. Shaytan was imagining before the heavenly lights on the Seal of Prophets (s) was coming. He was in darkness because he was following his ego, and Shaytan's ego is the strongest ego. Therefore, he was running after that, imagining there must be a master of this Creation. “There must be a master!” he was thinking, “And I may be that one. I like it to be for me!” That was his imagination; it was not reality, but imagining that he may be the master of Creation. Imagining is not yaqeen `ilm, certain knowledge (of Reality). Therefore, when Reality appeared he was shocked like in an explosion, and he said, “I can't accept this!!” What? You were a philosopher of heavens! Therefore, philosophers’ way is imagining, never giving a reality.

Imagination is nothing. Someone may imagine, “Tomorrow I am going to be king. Tomorrow I may be victorious through an election.” Tomorrow they are going down! Therefore listeners, I am trying also to understand and to listen. Leave imagination and come to Reality. Imagination is for philosophers and for their followers, it is never giving a reality to you. Heavenly inspirations are realities from heavens coming to that person who has realities, but that philosopher does not. Everything coming from the heavens are realities, but everything coming from Earth through philosophers is from Shaytan, who graduated whole philosophers and authorized them to make people on the wrong way!

People now on Earth are not following heavenly knowledge which brings realities. They are following (Karl) Marx (founder of modern communism), who is graduated from Shaytan. And like Shaytan, Marx said he knows everything, even getting in front of the Divine Presence saying, “Wrong order.” Astaghfirullah! (His philosophy is,) “You may be giving whole people to bow to Adam, but I am not that one who will bow to Adam because my imaginary world is giving me an understanding, to be the real first one for the whole Creation on the top level. That is my thinking, and now You are ordering against my imagination and I am not going to (surrender to Your heavenly way).”

Now people are on the wrong way of philosophers, like al harba’a, the chameleon, everywhere it is going to be the same color (as its environment). Twenty-first century people are like chameleons, every day taking another color, another imagination, another baatil, falsehood. Therefore, the whole dunya is leaving Reality and running after imagining. That is not our way; our way is to accept Reality!

O People! Whole Mankind living from east to west, from north to south, you must know you are following your imagination and you must know you were created to be your Lord's servants! Therefore, day-by-day you are going to be finished, taken away, because your imagination is from Shaytan! Shaytan was fighting Allah (swt) for what? To be the Number One in Creation. Now all leaders are tyrants saying, “I am the first one. I must be Number One! I must be followed by my whole nation according to my imagination, and then other nations must follow me as their leader.” To where they are leading? Up to today they taking people to the Fire, killing, burning, destroying. Then their Lord's anger begins to move, sending some signs from Hellfire coming on Earth.

Then they ask, from where are those i`ssaar, hurricanes coming? From where is the heavy rain coming? From where are those tsunamis coming? Ask Marx to say to you, ask from Darwin, ask from all philosophers! I am swearing that those who are not accepting their Lord's Real Being and that are imagining something for themselves and for their futures, that is baatil, falsehood!

O hadhrati `ulamas, where are you? Why are you not giving advice according to Shari`ah, according to the Holy Qur'an, to hadiths of the Last Prophet (s), that he was nadheer, Warner for Mankind? Why are you not saying? Why are you not objecting? Why this is not your mission? However, you think it is more important for you to say, “This hadith is weak, this one is strong, that hadith is so weak, we are not accepting.” Why are you not speaking about the Holy Qur’an's declaration that Allah Almighty was saying through His most beloved one, “O My most glorified one, warn them and make them fear.” Not warning only; to fear also, and andhirhum (warn them)! In so many verses (this is written), so why you are only speaking to bother people? What are imaams of `Abdul Wahab saying about Yawm al-Qiyamah (Day of Ressurection)?! Why are you not giving that warning?! You are putting so many ideas, you must put what Allah (swt) is saying, فَقَدْ جَاء أَشْرَاطُهَا faqad jaa’ ashraatuhaa, But already have come some tokens thereof (47:18) making for whole nations, particularly for the Muslim world because they are following Western countries! Why are you not warning them?

If what I am saying is wrong, say to me, “That is wrong!” You cannot say!! May Allah (swt) protect Muslims from Shaytan and its followers. Don’t think you can find Shaytan only in the Western world; now in Eastern countries you can find countless followers of Shaytan, all of them warning, “You should be punished,” and claiming, “We are on the top level of Islamic knowledge and we are not accepting this or that.”

Say that in the Holy Qur’an, Allah (swt) is saying

بَلِّغْ مَا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ

balligh maa unzil ilayka

proclaim the (message) which hath been sent to thee, (5:67)

“O My beloved one!” (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) You are accepting Muhammad (s) as Allah's beloved one or not?! Who is the beloved one in the Divine Presence?! SAY! SAY!! And you are Arabs?!! (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

But we are defending the Seal of Prophets (s) and as Allah (swt) said, he is Habeebullah (s), the beloved one! Why are you not leading people to love and respect him? Why are you making people's love and respect to him as shirk (idol worship)?! You are ignorant ones! This month is his birthday. (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) The whole of the Seven Heavens are now decorated for the honor of his birthday, yaa Habeebullah, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! And you say if someone is making for this whole declaration, they are mushriq (idol worshipper)! Where does it say that?? Al-halaalu ba'inu wal haraamu ba'inu (the permitted is clear and the forbidden is clear). (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

O People! They are calling now to whole nations. Look, Salafi `ulama, how the Christian world celebrates for Sayyidina ‘Isa's birthday, showing their love and respect to their prophet. And you are preventing Ummah Muhammadiyah, the Nation of Muhammad (s), from showing respect for his birthday. But for your child you are celebrating, “Happy Birthday!” If one is trying to make for their prophet's birthday you so angry and saying, “Shirk, shirk, shirk!” We are so happy and not knowing any other Creator. We are not accepting (your teachings). The first order for whole prophets through heavens is to say to their nations, (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) La ilaaha illa-Llah, la ilaaha illa-Llah, la ilaaha illa-Llah Sayyidina Muhammadun Rasoolullah wa Habeebullah wa `AbdAllah, “There is no god but Allah, and our master Muhammad is Allah's prophet, Allah's beloved, and Allah's slave!” (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

To be real believers, we must accept all prophets of heavens. Those nations that passed away, their imaan, faith, is never going to be complete until they say Musa Rasoolullah, and Sayyidina Muhammadun Rasoolullah (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.). Whole prophets’ mission was to make their whole nation to say, la ilaaha illa-Llah, and also the name of Prophet (s), Habeebullah wa `AbdAllah (Allah’s beloved and Allah's servant). If Sayyidina Musa (a) was not going to say Muhammadun Rasoolullah, he was never going to be able to move through the flood! We are in need of understanding.

O People! You must try to understand that death is so near to everyone. Don’t follow tyrants, don’t follow liars, don’t follow philosophers, who are truly liars but they say they are “philosophers.” Don’t follow them. Sahaaba 'l-kiram, the honored Companions (r), give them respect, respect, respect! Allah (swt) is happy with all Sahaabah (r) and giving them honor, saying:

رَّضِيَ اللّهُ عَنْهُمْ وَرَضُواْ عَنْهُ

radiy-Allahu `anhum wa radoo `anhu.

Allah well-pleased with them, and they with Allah. (5:119)

Aaaaaayy, aaaaaayy, aaaaaayy, aaaaaayy.

Huuuuuu, Huuuuuu, Huuuuuu, Huuuuuu.
