Happy journey! Eid Mubarak! Eid Mubarak! Thank you, alhamdulillah! Allah Almighty is sending His servants to me and I am servant to them, asking from Allah (swt) for the honor of the Seal of Prophets (s) to give you a happy life, here and Hereafter. But I am now weak, and I hope my faith is not weak. Therefore I am asking from all, and they are like my grand-daughters or great-grand-daughters and my grandsons or great-grandsons.
I am now weak, not like before when I was able to come five times (for prayers) to my dergah. Now it is difficult to come. Now only once a day I like to go around for a little bit and breathe nature. People are fighting with nature and everything they run after is artificial. They are not really fighting each other, but now Man is fighting nature by running after artificial things that give much more trouble to our physical being.
Three bad things harm Mankind: one is nylon (plastic), the second is hormones, and the third is concrete. These things make people change their real characteristics too much! Those are the most harmful things. Nylon is no good as it takes energy; hormones give bad energy inside; and, concrete is the biggest problem for nations, because our Creation is not from cement, it is from earth. Therefore, this house is made of earth (mud brick), which is suitable for our bodies; cement is not suitable. Concrete buildings disturb people and give them trouble. Therefore, I am advising you to run away from cities and run to nature, to mountains, valleys, fields and villages. Big cities are terrible places, giving trouble to people, and for that they are fighting with each other, running through the streets, making protests, shouting, "We are not happy! We are hungry! We are without clothing! We have no money!”
However, we are not asking for money, we are asking for halaal rizq that Allah Almighty sends from Heavens. It is permissible, so it gives our bodies strength. Yes! But through cities everything is artificial, which is not suitable for our bodies. People's minds have now changed because they are not tasting a sweet life. Allah Almighty asks for a sweet life for His servants, but now people are not servants; they have become slaves to technology. They eat but are not satisfied, they drink endlessly but their thirst is not quenched! They are not happy with their clothes. They are slaves of technology, and until they leave it and come back to nature they will never be happy or live a sweet or good life!
That's it, understand? Ladies, don't follow fashions as that is haraam! This must be well understood by Mankind. If not, they eat each other, kill each other and give troubles to each other. Don't use polyester! Before, ladies were so sweet and they recited, “Allahu, Allahu, Allahu...” Now (Mawlana Shaykh imitates putting on lipstick in a mirror) a hundred times a day! (laughter)
As-salaamu `alaykum! Happy journey, happy life for you here and Hereafter! Eid Mubarak! Eid Mubarak! We believe first Mahdi (a) will come, and second the Anti-Christ will come, and then Jesus Christ will return from Heavens to kill the Anti-Christ and everything against Mankind, and he will fight Shaytan.
