The kind of service here is different. For it to go on, it must be from the will of Sayyidi 'l-Awwaleen wa 'l-Akhireen. (Mawlana Shaykh Nazim stands) Yaa Sayyidi 'l-Awwaleen wa 'l-Akhireen! If there is khidhmah, service (to be done), I’m requesting from you through your shafa`ah (to give me long) life. I request permission! I request strength so that I may destroy these lousy ones, Shaytan’s sultanate! If you give no permission, then let me go! (Mawlana Shaykh sits)
(Translated from Arabic)
As-salamu `alaykum yaa`ibaadAllahi 's-saaliheen. Inna lillah fi 'l-`alam lahu shu`oon. Wa lillaahi fee khaliqihi shu`oon. As-salamu `alaykum yaa `ibaadAllah. Koonoo `ibaad Allahi 'l-mukhliseen.
As-salamu `alaykum, pious servants of Allah! Verily Allah in this world has different plans and works, and in His Creation, Allah is the Planner of doing things. As-salamu `alaykum, servants of Allah! Be sincere servants of Allah!
Nateejat kullu khitaab da`wat al-khalq ila 'l-haqq. (inaudible) Law haadha ghadarta ma`nah kull mu`assassat al-anbiya yakoon baatil. li-anna 'l-Haqq jall wa `alaa arsal al-anbiya `alayhimu 's-salaam wa warathatahum awliyaai 'l-kiraam bas li ajal da`watu 'n-naas ila 'l-haqq. as-salam `alaykum. Hayaat wa 'l-mamaat bi yadi Rabbi 'l-`Izzah. Law yajtama`u kullu 'n-naas an ya`tee `umr ziyaada `an `umr ar-rajul laa yastatee`oon.
The result of all speeches is to invite Creation to Truth. If that purpose is betrayed that means the foundations that prophets established would be false, because the prophets, peace be upon them, were sent with the Truth and also their inheritors, the generous awliya came down only to invite people to Truth. As-salamu `alaykum. Life and death is by the Hand of our Lord Almighty. If all the people tried to give more life beyond the life of a man, they cannot.
Kadhaalik laa yumkin an yadurr kull an-naas li rajalin idhaa hamahu Rabbi 'l-`Izza Jalla w a`alaa. Du`aikum ba`duna li ba`d, laa budd minhu. Nahnu fi 's-sin al-`ajz wa ahyaanan akoono da`eefa.
Likewise, it is impossible for all people to harm a man if the Lord Almighty protects him. Your prayers to each other are necessary. We are in an old age and sometimes I feel weak.
wa innanee uhibb an akoon ma`kom fee hayaatikum fi kull sa`atin, fee hayaatikum wa an akoona ma`kom fee khidmatikum li-tafreehikum. Faraah. Uhibb an takoono fee faraahin wa suroor.
And I love to be with you, in every hour of your lives (all the time), and to be at your service to make you happy! Happiness. I love for you to be in happiness and elated!
Sabbihu Rabbakum! Qooloo laa ilaaha illa Anta subhaanak. Laa ilaaha illa Anta subhaanak. Laa ilaaha illa Anta subhaanak. Haadha himaayatan lanaa. Sayyidina Yunus.
He was saying Laa ilaaha illa Anta subhaanak innee kuntu min azh-zhaalimeen. Amaan yaa Rabbee. Our Lord. Yaa Rabbee. yaa Rabbee. Nahnu min azh-zhaalimeen laakin laa uhibb an ukarrir anna Rabbin Kareem. Rabbin Ghafoor. wa an aqool innee kuntu min azh-zhaalimeen.
Glorify your Lord! Say, laa ilaaha illa Anta! Subhaanak! "There is no god but You! Glory to You!" This is protection for us. Sayyidina Yunus saying, laa ilaaha illa Anta! Subhanaka innee kuntu min azh-zhaalimeen. "There is no god but You! Glory to You, for verily I was of the oppressors." Amaan, O my Lord! yaa Rabbee, yaa Rabbee. We are from the oppressors, but I like to repeat that verily, the Lord is Generous, the Lord is Forgiving! And I say that I was of the oppressors.
Huwa ya`lam nahnu min azh-zhaalimeen. Kulluna zhaalimeen. Wa nahnu narju `afwahu wa ridwaanahu wa himaayatuhu min sharri 'l-ashrar. Ayyuha 'n-naas najaatuna fi 'd- dunya wa 'l-akhira mutaba`at khaatam an-nabiyeen.
He knows that we are from the oppressors. We are all oppressors, and we are hoping/begging for His forgiveness and His Pleasure, and His protection from the worst of wickedness/evil. O People! Our savior/safety here and Hereafter depends on the Seal of Prophets (s)!
Hadhihi naseeha li nafsee wa lakum ayyuha 'n-naas. Koonoo `ibaadAllahi 'l-mukhliseen. Ijtahidu an takoonoo ayyuha 'n-naas, koonoo Rabbaniyeen. Wa lillahi 'l-hamd awwalan wa akhiran. Azalan wa abadan li Rabbana Jallu wa `alaa.
(Mawlana stands) O People! This is an advice for myself and for you! Be sincere servants of Allah. O People! Strive hard to be Rabbani. And to Allah is all praise/thanks, from the beginning to the end, from pre-Eternal up to Eternal, for our Lord Almighty, Most High!
SubhaanAllah, Sultaan Allah. SubhaanAllah. SultaanAllah. Narju Rahmatak wa nakhsha `adhaabak amiddoona bi madadin min `indak bi jaahi nabiyika 'l-kareem Sayyid al-Awwaleen wa 'l-Akhireen. Hamdan Laka. Shukran Laka. Azalan wa abadan yaa Rabbana. (Mawlana sits)
SubhanAllah, Sultaan Allah. SubhaanAllah. SultaanAllah. We seek Your mercy and fear Your punishment. Support us with Your divinely support for the honor of Your generous Prophet, Master of the Firsts and Lasts (before and after this life). Praise to You, thanks to You, from pre-Eternal up to Eternal, O our Lord! (Mawlana sits.)
