No Rest in This Life

Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

29 October 2009 | Lefke, Cyprus

(Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, laa ilaaha illa-Llah. Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar wa lillahi ‘l-hamd! Ilahi laka ‘l-hamd, hamdan daaiman m`a khuloodik, yaa Rabbi ‘ghfir lanaa, w’arhamnaa, w’ansurnaa. w ’aghfir lanaa ....yaa Rabbil-`alameen. Alfu salaat, alfu salaam.

Thousands and thousands of praisings and glory for Your, most glorified and honored one through Your Divine Presence, O our Lord, Sayyidina Muhammad (s). Zid-hu yaa Rabbee `izzan wa sharafan wa nooran wa surooran wa sultana. Alhamdulillah w 'ash-shukru lillah from pre-Eternal up to Eternal. You are bringing us from nothing, to be in something in existence O our Lord! All Glory, all Praising only for You. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

As-salaamu `alaykum O our listeners. Listen for Allah (swt), not for me, no. Listen for His most glorified and honored deputy from pre-Eternal up to Eternal. O People, listen to him because that gives you honor. As-salaamu `alaykum, all Mankind, wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh.

We are beginning with the holy orders from heavens, which is ordering all Mankind to say, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani ‘r-rajeem. You must say this, mut`arrifan, admit that you are in need of heavenly protection. Heavenly protection is coming to people on this planet through holy ones. It is a big grant from Allah Almighty to save His servants from falling into the traps of Shaytan. Therefore don’t forget, first of all, to make the base you are standing on to be a strong one. Now this meeting is going to be under a heavenly protection. Therefore don’t forget to say when you are going out of your home, so you may not to be cheated by Shaytan and its followers. When you are saying according to the holy command of Allah Almighty, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani ‘r-rajeem, “running to You, O our Lord.” Running to you, means to run to those who are representing You. If a person is in need for petroleum, he is not running to wells in Arabia or Persia or America to take petrol. He is running to a petrol station. You can find a petrol station everywhere, there are more than enough. No need to reach oceans under the earth or oil fields, no. You can go quickly, putting what you are in need of.

Therefore when you are saying, “O our Lord, we are running to You,” that gives to the Master who is directing this planet on its orbit, on its real limit. He is going to be there. Ask from Him, He is like a big depot of that heavenly power. Just as you are saying it, He must reach you. He has been ordered if anyone says “a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani ‘r-rajeem,” that One must reach you through His holy power. He must reach you, and support you, and protect you. Therefore, O Mankind, don’t forget to ask protection and support against Shaytan and its armies.

We are following holy commands of heavens and that is our real target. That command only, “O Mankind, follow Heavenly command.” Don’t look at useless ways. Now in our days, people are asking some ways on this planet, but they (those ways) can’t take you to your real target. Therefore, beware. Don’t cut your relation with holy ones. Even if you are not seeing them or coming together (meeting them), you may come with them sometimes. But it is difficult to recognize that person, because they camouflage themselves. They are not showing that they have such a power. Therefore we are saying, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani ‘r-rajeem. We are also saying, bismillahi ‘r-Rahmaani ‘r-Raheem (Mawlana lengthens the recitation). An order is coming, “O Our servants, We are granting to you, bismillahi ‘r-Rahmaani ‘r- Raheem for defending yourself against Shaytan and its armies.” That is a heavenly grant to you from the Lord of Heavens. It is granted when you ask protection to reach your real aim or target. You must use this, because on your way there are so many, qat`a tareeq, cutting ways, that Shaytan is coming.

Once Prophet (s), who had a stick in his hand, made a straight line on sand. He said to his companions: “Look, this way (line), it is straight way; who follows this way should reach to his Lord’s Divine Presence with honor and glory.” Then he made such lines on right-hand side or left-hand side so many. The Seal of Prophets (s) is the teacher for Mankind. He was also teaching Adam (a) and all prophets. Chief master for all Creation, ins wa’l-jinn, for Mankind and jinns also is Sayyidina Muhammad (s). (Mawlana stands.) In spite of Salafis and Wahabis, we are standing up for his honor, saying this straight line takes you to the Divine Presence. (Mawlana sits.)

You are looking and seeing so many exits. Exit, exit, exit, and through every exit there is one shaytan sitting and saying, “O our visitors, why are you going this way? Come this way, enjoy yourself and take a break.” That one is coming and taking a rest. There are so many stations for taking a break. Shaytan is calling, “O please come here, take a rest and enjoy yourself, such enjoyful centers here.” If you are saying, “I am in a hurry because I have a long way to go; my time is running and I must reach my real station before my time finishes,” then you are running and escaping from him. There is more decoration at another exit and Shaytan is saying, “O, break free, come and visit us and enjoy yourself with less price, cheaper. Come and sit one minute, then go.” When looking, that hook is carrying and tying that one and then quickly the manager of second break-center is saying, “Offer some drinks that he may change his mind, let him to drink.” When he is drinking they begin to say, “O we are very proud for you to be with us. Come a little bit more inside, you should find much more than this.” If he can save himself, more exits will come, one after another.

That is the biggest cursing that is coming on Mankind now. The teacher of prophets, of angels and of Mankind is Sayyidina Muhammad (s), and in spite of Wahabis and Salafis, we are standing up for his honor. Yaa Rabbee, O our Lord. The best teacher, na`imat 'l-mu`allim, teaching the straight way to Allah (swt). He is expecting His servants to come to His Divine Presence through these heavenly levels, to give them from His endless treasures, na`imat, waiting for everyone to grant to them.

O People, where are you? Are you thinking of where you must go tonight to enjoy yourselves? Shaytan is waiting on so many exits to make you to drink from its urine. Tooba, good tidings for those who are not listening and staying out of the exits.

There is no rest, laa rahata fi ’d-dunya; it is from prophecy, a knowledge that is thaabit, firm. Firm order or firm knowledge is given to people: “O People, don’t run after raahat, comfort, to take from this life’s enjoyments because this life is only based on trouble.” Therefore whoever is coming through this life must use his mind. He must think, because thinking opens unknown meanings that comes from heavens to your heart.

The seal of Prophets (s) was teaching all of creation because all of creation is coming through his honor. He is coming to teach us lightenings, endless light oceans. O listeners, don’t sleep and don’t say, “We know this.” You know nothing, as I am knowing nothing. Whoever is sleeping through such an association has been taken by a shaytanic hook, carrying that one to sleep aside. O People, it is a short time, it gives some power to your heavenly beings. Giving such a power from the Lord of Heavens so that you may be awake all the time and not asleep. Sleeping people are just carried away by Shaytan, who is giving injections to that one to sleep more and more. And he (Shaytan) is saying, “Sleep, sleep.” It is mentioned through holy teachings from the Seal of Prophets (s), that a person was sleeping at night then awakening and asking to get up for night-praying, munaajaat, asking from the Lord. Shaytan is coming and covering that one with a blanket and saying, “We still have time for praying, sleep a little more then you can get up and pray.” That one is listening to him, putting the blanket on. Later he awakens and looks, “O sunrise! What happened? I wanted to get up tonight for praying. Who covered me?” That is Shaytanic advise. And they are saying, “What happend to me? Tonight I had to get up. And who covered me?” And that Shaytanic is saying, “Oh my darling, I like that you take you rest. Now you may do. It doesn’t matter.”

Therefore, whoever is sitting and listening for a short time through 24 hours, some people beginning to sleep, and Shaytan looking to see which one is most heedless, saying, “This one is good for me, I must put my blanket on him.” Someone saying, “Stand up, stand up! What is the Lord saying? Are you not sleeping all day?”

Look, listen. These are some living words that you cannot find through east and west because they are forbidden. Trembling and standing up. O People, beware of Shaytan! Allah (swt), yaa Rabbee! Give Your heavenly protection to Your weak servants. We are weak servants of our Lord (and this is a) warning, warning. We are loosing and we are going to be lost ones. What was he asking to reach through a short time? Therefore, Allah Almighty is always able to make our lives more than 70, 80 or more than 100 years or He may give us a thousand years (to live); it is not important. He only needs to say, “My order is that My servants may live on this planet 1,000 years.”

The main purpose of heavens in making a short life for our physical beings is to reach something through our short life. It is reported through holy hadith of the Seal of Prophets (s), that when a person finishes his period on this planet, his soul and his body are taken to the cemetery, graveyard. On the Day of Resurrection the first question the Lord of Heavens will ask people is, “What did you learn?” The Lord of Heavens, who brings you from dust to a living one, will ask that on the Day of Resurrection, “As you lived on this planet, what did you learn?”

O People! We are coming here for learning, not to make enjoyment, no! The main purpose is to learn; that is the main target for Mankind. “What did you learn?” What are you going to say? “I learned nothing.” Blame on you at that time. Don’t sleep here!! Therefore, I am assigning to your ear: hear and look to the wisdoms through holy books and through Allah Almighty’s 124,000 special creatures, and look to all messengers from Heaven to Mankind what they are teaching you. You must learn this! Don’t run to learn something for this temporary life.

O People! Al-`ilmu bahrun. The Knowledge Ocean is endlessly deep and there are no beaches for it. Allah (swt) has granted to you such dominions. Try to learn something. May Allah (swt) forgive us! We were beginning to say, la raahata fi ’d-dunya, “No one fully taking rest through this life.” It is such a short time. The straight way giving you a kind of rest, but if you are using exits on the straight way, you will be troubled. You will fall into such countless positions, countless crises, countless, unexpected and disliked things. Every day is passing on you and the main question is, are you running on exits or on the right path of Allah (swt)? All the trouble that Mankind are tasting is because they are running through exits. Therefore, more and more trouble, crisis, and suffering are coming on themselves.

O People! Hear, as I am trying to hear. Hear and obey! This is a heavenly warning, making such a weak servant to speak to you. The Lord of Heavens is able to make a stone or a tree or a donkey speak to you; it is not difficult. But He is making someone speak to you, so try to understand and think on it. As-salaamu `alaykum.
