Try to Be Workers for Your Lord’s Honor

Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

25 October 2009 Lefke, Cyprus

(Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, la ilaaha illa-Llah, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, wa lillahi ‘l-hamd! Alfu salaat, alfu salaam `ala sayyidi ‘l-awwaleen wa’l-aakhireen, Sayyidina Muhammadin wa aalihi wa sahbihi `ajma’een bi-fadlihi subhaanahu wa ta`ala. (Mawlana sits.)

As-salaamu `alaykum. My listeners, you are listening, hearing and understanding. (Mawlana puts on eyeglasses.) If you are not understanding, you are not listening! Listen and obey! Hear and listen and follow holy commands of heavens. Madad, Sultan al-Awliyaaullah. I am asking spiritual support from the master of this world; don’t forget him! O people! When you are falling in a difficult situation, you may ask from him a spiritual support. As a person keeps falling in a difficult position, now they are looking and running to some people who have some powers, and they are asking because they are in need. Some of them answer, and some others are in need. It is a holy order through every holy book, mentioned through the Old Testament and New Testament, Allah, Allah, as mentioned through Holy Qur’an. A holy order of our Lord! wa ta`awanoo `ala al-birri wa' t-taqwa. Our Muslim brothers from Arab, or all Arabs, may understand the holy command, وَتَعَاوَنُواْ عَلَى الْبرِّ وَالتَّقْوَى - "wa ta`awanoo `ala al-birri wa' t-taqwa - O People! Be helpers to each other for good actions." (5:2)

That is important, never changing. That is a command through all the holy books just mentioned. Therefore, you may ask from some people a help for something. Materialist people are going to ask support from other materialist people. Say, “Come and support me, I am not in a good condition.” Yes, asking. But for believers, who are believing in spirituality, they may ask for help from such people who are on different levels of heavens. They have authority and power, and they may help a person if they are using their help for a good purpose. If not, they are not helping. If for bad purpose, Shaytan helping. Therefore, we are believers who believing in spirituality and that belief gives us a support. It maybe that the whole Mankind can’t give to you a help, but one of them may help you. Therefore, I am a weak servant and asking my master, who is master on this world, to support me, to send me heavenly knowledge that is giving an inspiration. We are saying, “Giving a waking to our physical being.” Ask; they are never refusing! They are giving also support.

Today, I am a little bit weak, but I don’t like to leave our listeners, our people with good intentions, not to reach something today. As much as they are granting to me, I may speak for supporting our listeners or for supporting good ones, yes. O our listeners, as-salaamu `alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh! That heavenly salute, if reaching to a person, a heavenly support and a refreshment to move or to do or to act, to make his effort for his Lord. Yes, it is important. Therefore, I am saying for our listeners, may be my 3 persons, maybe 300 persons, maybe 3000 people, maybe 3 million people. The Lord of Heavens paying me for my service! I am happy with my Lord, paying me for His honor. Try to be workers for your Lord’s honor. He Almighty, endless Honor Oceans, endless Honor Dominions are for Him only. Absolute! Oceans of Greatness, and Glory and Majesty and Mighty Dominions for Him. He is granting us something. If an atom is coming from His endless Mighty Oceans, may take this Earth from its place, from darkness to enlightened worlds, enlightened dominions. And He is calling us, “O My servants, come to My Enlightened Dominion Oceans. You are not seeing or knowing about My real generosity. Only one, like an atom, you have been granted in this world. You are losing your minds and you are running after this world’s treasures.”

(Mawlana coughs after drinking from teacup.) That is black pepper to open my voice a little bit more; that’s what I am using. We are not asking to use spiritual power for such a thing, no. Allah Almighty prepared so many plants and minerals to be a medicine for mankind and to give them health. The Lord of Heavens is giving to His servants everything for health and granting to them endless wealth also. But what are you doing if you have been granted whole treasures on this world? Today you are here, tomorrow passing away. You never see a person building a house on a bridge. Ever anyone see? “No, Shaykh, we never saw.” If you are seeing, what are you saying?

“What are you building?”

“I am building a house, a small hut, to live in it on this bridge.”

“How? For what? This is not a place to live on it. No. This bridge only for passing on this side to the other side. How are you building a house to sit in it? You are a no-mind person!”

Now, countless people are mindless; now people building (skyscrapers) towers. When a person is building more than two floors, angels saying, “O Mankind, to where you think you are reaching up, up? You are like Nimrod to make so high a tower. For what? It is not enough for you two stories?”

“No, we must try to do more than two. If we can build more, we must try to build 200 stories.”

Very strange. Terrible. What are you doing? Now, we are on this pyramid for a short time. Look and listen. They are giving to me to speak on Jesus Christ, peace be upon him, a story that is mentioned through holy books. Jesus Christ (pbuh) was always traveling, but he is not traveling by planes or cars or even on horses. He used donkeys, but not horse. `Isa (a) was always traveling. For what? To meet people and to speak with them and to give an advice. Once he was walking and he reached a high place on a mountain. He was looking and finding one man with old clothes, nothing on his head or on his feet, sitting as a person sitting, praying to his Lord. And Jesus Christ (a) coming and giving salaams:

“Oh, my Lord’s servant, who are you?”

“You are RuhAllah, Holy Spirit of Allah! You are asking that question of me?”

Jesus Christ saying, “I know, but I like to hear this speech among ourselves. Yes, I know you. What are you doing here?”

The man saying, “O Jesus Christ (a), I am sitting here.”

“What are you doing?”

“Praying, making my Lord’s Holy Name, Allah Allah, Allah Allah.”

As he was saying Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Jesus Christ (a) saw he was rising up, higher and higher and asked, “How are you doing this?”

“Because my spiritual power from my Lord is making me to rise and I am resting, not sitting on Earth, but sitting in the air. And I am making dhikr as much as possible.”

Jesus Christ (a) saying, “Where is your home?”

He saying, “O, Jesus Christ, you know that I am so old one! One-hundred years I am here, busy for my Lord’s heavenly service. Therefore, I am not finding a time to leave service of my Lord to build something. Night and day I am here, summer and winter I am here; I am not moving.”

“O, you are like angels.”

“Yes, the Lord of Heavens, my Lord feeding me. When I am hungry, giving me from His endless Mercy Oceans such a drink, drinking and not leaving me thirsty.”

Jesus Christ (a) saying, “O my Lord’s happy servant, my Lord’s glorified servant, you are very special one. How can you do this?”

“Yes, when I am hungry my Lord makes me to be full and when I am thirsty, He grants me drink, and I am happy with His service.”

And then, “How many years are you here, O my Lord’s servant?” Jesus Christ saying to him, “O my Lord’s servant, it is highest honor for man.”

“I am here 700 years.”

“SubhanAllah, Glory to my Lord! You are here 700 years, and you are not building a place for sitting in it?!”

That servant of our Lord saying to Jesus Christ, “It is so short a life, 700 years. I don’t like to occupy myself for a building. I am sitting here, day and night, summer and wintertime. No time for me to put a stone on another one. O Jesus Christ, what are you saying?”

Jesus Christ was astonished and saying, “SubhanAllah. Glory to our Lord! O my Lords’ servant, should come the seal of Prophets, our chief one, highest one that he is coming after me, Sayyidina Muhammad (s).” (Mawlana stands)

That worshipper standing up and saying, “O, for the honor of Muhammad (s). Forgive us, O our Lord.”

Jesus Christ continuing, “In his time, his nation competing for which of them going to build building higher. Their lives may be only 60 or 70 years, mostly.”

“O Jesus Christ (a), I was informed that my life is going to be 700 years and a little bit more. Therefore, I am not seeing to build something for my physical being. Not to give my physical being a pleasure, except to be pleased with his Creator. That is my mission.”

Jesus Christ (a) was sad and saying, “O for the nation of the Seal of Prophets (s), they are making competition among themselves which of them is going higher, higher even in Mecca al-Mukarramah, at the Haram ash-Shareef!

The government giving permission to be built for such towers like the towers of Nimrod. What shall we say? What is the fatwah from Salafi `ulama for those buildings, I am asking? If we are saying salawat salam alayka, Ya Rasullulah, they are accusing us and saying that we are mushriks (idol worshippers). They are ignorant ones! Who is giving them that authority to build towers of Nimrod?

Jesus Christ (a) asking to that abid, servant of our Lord, “O my Lord’s servant, if you have been granted only 60 or 70 years, what are you going to do, if 700 years you are not building anything, what are you going to do in that time?”

He said, “O Jesus Christ (a), I am only saying Allahu akbar and making sajdah, 60 or 70 years passing and the Angel of Death comes and takes my soul.”

Jesus Christ (a) was crying.

O His Holiness, the pope, O His Holiness from chief rabbis, O doctors, what are your intentions for this story? Don’t say to me ("it is) israiliyaat (unverified reports)." No, no. Then I may ask to you "haatoo burhaanakum - give your proofs." If you are not knowing, then maybe something attaching to you from heavenly beings, no one may take from you. You may be majnoon, mad (insane). You will be mad!

O my listeners! Time by time, heavenly masters, particularly the master of this world, that he is the pole and sending to me inspirations that I may speak to you to remind people to think on it, it is enough. You are running after dunya. You are not created for dunya, but you have been created for the servanthood of the Lord of Heavens. Allah! (Mawlana stands.) Jalla Jalaaluhu, Jalla Jalaaluhu, Jalla Jalaaluhu! (Mawlana sits.)

(42 minutes Sayyidee.) Enough, OK.

My listeners, long life to you with good actions! Live for Allah! Don’t live for your egos! Live only for Allah Jalla Jalaaluhu. Don’t live to collect carcass on this world; nothing giving to you, taking honor from you! But if you are working for your Lord, you should be honored that no one grants to you but your Lord!
