Yaa RijaalAllah! SubhaanAllah, Hisham Efendi and Adnan Efendi. Our way is association and goodness is in gatherings. Today it came to my heart and occurred to my mind, subhaanAllahi ‘l-Aliyyi ‘l-`Azheem. (Mawlana sings) RijaalAllah a`eenoona bi `awnillah, “Men of God! Support us with the support of Allah.”
Mawlana Shaykh Hisham: RijaalAllah a’eenoona bi `awnillah wa koonoo `awnan lana billah ahsaa nahdha bi fadli ‘l-Lah.
Those shaytans, Wahhabis and their followers, and those who call themselves “Salafi”, and shayaateen have tried their best to make people forget RijaalAllah. This Shaytan directed the groups of Salafis and Wahhabis and their followers to forget RijaalAllah. It is in the holy hadith that because of them rain will fall, with them you will be victorious, and with them you will be provided with provisions; because of them you will be victorious. This is the `aqeedah, doctrine, of Ahlu ’s-Sunnah wa ’l-Jama`ah. In spite of that, they closed down and corrupted the doctrines of the Muslims and subhaanAllah, they fall in the traps of Shaytan.
This is important. Shaytan put that worst thing in their hearts and they became the worst of all Creation, the lowest of the low. They worked hard so the ummah may forget their saints!
أَلا إِنَّ أَوْلِيَاء اللّهِ لاَ خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلاَ هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ
Alaa inna awliyaullahi laa khawfan `alayhim wa laa hum yahzanoon.
Behold! Verily on the friends of God there is no fear, nor shall they grieve. (Surat al-Yunus, 10:62)
Those shayateen all fight against this verse! Why did Allah (swt) praise them?
الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ وَكَانُواْ يَتَّقُونَ
Alladheena aamanoo wa kaanoo yattaqoon. Al-ladheena aamanoo wa kaanoo yattaqoon. Lahumu’l-bushra fi ‘l-hayaati ‘d-dunya wa fi ‘l-akhirah.
Those who believe and constantly guard against evil, for them are glad tidings, in the life of the present and in the Hereafter. (Surah Yunus, 10:63-64)
It’s astonishing Hisham Effendi. Allah praises His awliyaa, saints. Is it not like this? And He, al-Haqq (swt), ordered:
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ اتَّقُواْ اللّهَ وَكُونُواْ مَعَ الصَّادِقِينَ
yaa ayyhulladheena aamanoo ittaqoollaha wa koonoo ma`a as-saadiqeen.
Be with those who are trustworthy (in word and deed). (Surat at-Tawbah, 9:119)
Yet people followed the liars, those shaytans of men and jinn, until He drowned them in curses because they fell in the traps of Shaytan. People of the Islamic world, while standing or sitting, are killing each other, and Allah has forbidden the blood of a believer for a believer. How is this?
وَلاَ تَقْتُلُواْ أَنفُسَكُمْ
Wa laa taqtuloo anfusakum
Nor kill (or destroy) yourselves. (An-Nisa, 4:29)
The orders are clear. I am sorry to say that the Arabs are reciting Qur’an in the two holy places, Mecca and Madinah, in Egypt and in Sham, and they don’t understand wa laa taqtuloo anfusakum. How can you kill a believer? O Qadhafi!O Mubarak! O Ali majnoon! O Bashar! O People of Egypt! O People of Libya! O People of Tunis! O People of Iraq! O People of Sham! Their sunnah is the sunnah of Arabs, but their hearts are like the hearts of wolves. It is in the hadeeth.
What will be their answer, if the Lord of Might and Honor asks them? He will not address them directly, no! Only the angels will talk with them. The addressing of the Haqq (swt) to the servant is such an honor that no one can know, and He will not give this honor to them! He will make the angels question and judge them.
Bayazid, Sultan al-`Arifeen, may Allah raise his rank, said all the people will be scared on Judgment Day, and during the Great Judgment everyone will tremble in fear. But he used to say, “I only want to hear my Almighty Lord call me, ‘O Aba Yazeed! Come for your accounting.’ I am waiting to hear this addressing from my Lord Almighty; to hear my name is enough for me. If after that He throws me into Hellfire, it will not burn or torture me; nothing will hurt me from all the seven hells, as from the happiness and joy that my Lord addressed me, nothing will affect my happiness. The reason of my happiness has made the fire of Hell cool.”
They don’t teach such things to people, they don’t value rijaalAllah, and because of this curses are falling on the ummah, starting from the people of Turkey, Sham, Iraq, Hijaaz, Egypt, Libya, Tunis, and Algeria. This is the curse that came upon all the Muslims in Iran, Afghanistan, India and China, and because of this Allah is punishing them. Allah (swt) praises and grants special honor to His awliyaa, so why do you not appreciate them? All these groups are with shaytans. A separate fire is designated for them!
It is not up to me to prepare this suhbah. It is a very important suhbah, and the result, Hisham Efendi and Adnan Efendi, I didn’t hear until now.
O People of Iraq! O People of Egypt! O People of Sham! Why are you fighting the armies from above? O People of Homs! Among you is Sayyidina Khalid ibn Waleed (r), so why do you not go to him? Who is the shaykh protecting Sham? Shaykh Ruslan (q) is protecting the whole of Sham! Visit him and say, “O our Master! Take care of us and look at us!” However, they all have become the followers of Wahhabis and the Salafi doctrine. It does not suit them to be considered as followers of Islam. What does the Prophet (s) say? Akrimoo kareema qawm, “Be generous with a nation’s hospitable leaders.”
Did you hear this before, O people of Iraq, you traitors? You should go to the sultan, Sayyidina `Abdul-Qadir Jilani (q), and tell him, “You are the sultan! Rid us from the evil of men and jinn.” Did they go to him?
Mawlana Shaykh Hisham: They destroyed (his maqaam).
Mawlana Shaykh Nazim: Yes, they destroyed. “O Shaykh Nazim! In an instant things can change, I don’t need an army from you. The armies of the Heavens and the Earth are under the control of Sayyidi 'l-Awwaleen wa ’l-Akhireen (s).” It is in the holy verse:
وَلَقَدْ نَصَرَكُمُ اللّهُ بِبَدْرٍ وَأَنتُمْ أَذِلَّةٌ فَاتَّقُواْ اللّهَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ إِذْ تَقُولُ لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ أَلَن يَكْفِيكُمْ أَن يُمِدَّكُمْ رَبُّكُم بِثَلاَثَةِ آلاَفٍ مِّنَ الْمَلآئِكَةِ مُنزَلِينَ بَلَى إِن تَصْبِرُواْ وَتَتَّقُواْ وَيَأْتُوكُم مِّن فَوْرِهِمْ هَـذَا يُمْدِدْكُمْ رَبُّكُم بِخَمْسَةِ آلافٍ مِّنَ الْمَلآئِكَةِ مُسَوِّمِي
Wa laqad nasarakum Allahu bi Badrin wa antun adhillatun fa’t-taqoollaha la`alakum tashkuroon. Idh taqoolu l ‘l-mu`mineena alan yakfeekum an yumiddukum rabbukum bi-thalaathat alfin min min al-malaaikati munzileena balaa in tasbiroo wa tataqoo wa yaatookum min fawrihim hadha yumdidkum Rabbukum bi khamsati aalaafin min al-malaaikati musawameen.
God had helped you at Badr, when you were a contemptible little force; then fear God, thus May you show your gratitude. Remember you said to the Faithful, "Is it not enough for you that God should help you with three thousand angels (specially) sent down?” Yeah, if you remain firm, and act aright, even if the enemy should rush here on you in hot haste, your Lord would help you with five thousand angels making a terrific onslaught. (Surat Aali-`Imraan, 3:123-125)
O Arabs! Five thousand angels descended from the sky. They will come with Mahdi (a). How do you read the Holy Qur’an? Shame on you that you don’t understand! Did the five thousand descend? Then why are three thousand angels mentioned? “He will support you in the future with five thousand angels with turbans.” The Arabs denied to leave a tail of the turban, tasweem, and this is the first order. They insist on doing against what the Prophet (s) used to do, and not one of them goes to Halab to visit Sayyidina Zakaria (a). Why don’t the people of Sham visit Sayyidina Yahya (a) and Sayyidina Muhyiddin ibn `Arabi (q)? There are 100,000 maqaams of the Sahaabah; in Homs there are six hundred or more, and their master, Sayyidina Khalid ibn Waleed (r). Why don’t they visit there and say, “O our Master! You are our leader! Save us from all of these people; remove every last one of them!”
وَقَذَفَ فِي قُلُوبِهِمُ الرُّعْبَ يُخْرِبُونَ بُيُوتَهُم بِأَيْدِيهِمْ وَأَيْدِي الْمُؤْمِنِي
Wa alqa fee qulubihim ar-ru`b yukhriboona buyootahum bi-aydihim wa aydiyyi ’l-mumineen
But the (Wrath of) Allah came to them from quarters from which they little expected (it), and cast terror into their hearts, so that they destroyed their dwellings by their own hands and the hands of the Believers... (Surat al-Hashr, 59:2)
By asking the saints, Allah (swt) will make them tremble and defeat them with a look from Sayfullah, Sayyidina Khalid ibn Waleed (r)! Shaykh Ahmad al-Badawi was an Arab Bedouin. He respected and honored Allah a lot; therefore, the veil from his eyes was removed. When he saw me, he made tea for me to drink.. May Allah bless him.
Laa ilaaha illa-Llah Muhammadun Rasoolullah (s). With awliyaa you will be successful, so why don’t you seek them? People of Halab, Baghdad, Sham and Palestine! Why don’t you go to their maqaams? How many maqaams are there? Sayyidina Musa (a) is also there; why don’t they go?
O, Prophet of Allah (s)! Your nation has hurt us, fought us, and killed us. You are our protector! Please look after us.
Mawlana Shaykh Hisham: They have changed, Sayyidee.
They have changed too much. They have hurt others, the followers of sunnah. They changed the doctrines of Ahlu ’s-Sunnah wa ’l-Jama`ah and Ahlu ‘l-Haqeeqah. “And entertain the kind folk among you.” It is not necessary that the folk should be alive. The Qur’an is an ocean, O Shaykh Hisham! That’s why the people are being hurt. `Amalaakum `umaalukum. Your deeds are your representatives.
Tawbah, yaa Rabbee. Tawbah, yaa Rabbee.
