O Muslims! Hold Fast to the Rope of Allah

Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

7 October 2011 Lefke, Cyprus

As salaamu `alaykum. (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, laa ilaaha illa-Llah Allahu akbar wa lilaahi ‘l-hamd. Thumma ’s-salaatu wa ’s-salaamu `ala sayyidina al-awaleen wa ’l-‘akhireen habeebina Muhammadin wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallim. (Mawlana Shaykh sits) Madad yaa ahbaabi Rasoolillah. Zidhu yaa Rabbee `izzan wa sharafan nooran wa surooran, sultaanan wa ridwaana.

A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem.

Dastoor madad yaa RijaalAllah, madad yaa awliyaaullah, madad, madad yaa ahbaabi Rasoolullah.

O Our Attenders! As-salaamu `alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh. It is the holy month of Dhul-Qadah. Allah Almighty gives more honor for four months: Dhul-Q`adah, Dhul-Hijjah, Muharram and Rajabun Shahrullah. Who is asking for real honor may give their most high respect for these four holy months.

O Mankind! All of you ask for forgiveness, because we are leaving the safe, honored, glorious way and following the dirtiest way. We are leaving the way of the most high, honored one, Sayyidina Muhammad (s), (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits) and following the dirtiest, cursed one's way. That is a big shame for Mankind! This includes the Muslim world also, which I am sorry to say is leaving the way of the most honored one in the Divine Presence, running to follow western people! Western people are not on the right way; they are following the worst way to which Shaytan is calling them. Now the Muslim world is trying to follow the steps of the unbelievers and cursed people, and that is the biggest shame for the Muslim world!

Therefore, now cursing comes daily on people, particularly on the Islamic world, and the first ones responsible are the Arabs, because they are ashamed to say they are Muslims, ummata Muhammad (s). Each one is saying, "We are Saudi, Syrian, Iraqi, Irani, Lebanese, Egyptian, Libyan, we are donkeys!" (laughter)

O Muslims, Allah Almighty is saying:

وَاعْتَصِمُواْ بِحَبْلِ اللّهِ جَمِيعًا وَلاَ تَفَرَّقُواْ

w `ataasimoo bi hablillaahi jamee`aan wa laa taffaraqoo.

And hold fast, all together, by the rope which Allah (stretches out for you), and be not divided among yourselves. (Surah Aali-`Imraan, 3:103)

I wonder, do Arabs not understand Arabic? They are saying in every Jumu`ah khutbah, “O Muslims! hablullah mursal min as-samaa.” They are claiming they are Muslims. I am asking all of you, what does it mean hablullah mursal min as-samaa? They are not understanding hablillahi ’l-mateen, it is Arabic sent from Heaven. I am so angry with Arabs, and also all the awliya are angry because they are reciting the Holy Words of Allah Almighty, “w `ataasimoo bi hablillaahi jamee`aan wa laa taffaraqoo.”

It means, "O People! Keep that powerful rope sent from the Heavens to save you here and Hereafter!" You are not keeping that powerful rope to save you. That is why I and the heavenly ones are so angry! SO ANGRY! There will soon come on the Arab world seven whips, so don't say, “We are Arabs,” rather say, “We are Muslims,” or that heavenly whip will come and not leave anyone from your nation; it will take you away and bring another nation! Allah Almighty will tarbiyah, teach them a lesson, with one person teaching and training.

O Arabs! Beware, all who are not saying, "We are Muslim," but saying, "We are Arabs." There will come to you someone who is 70 times more powerful than Hajjaj azh-Zhaalim!

O People! Rabbu ‘l-`Izza, Allah Almighty, He is saying, "I forbid oppression! I am making injustice and oppression haraam, forbidden. falaa tazhaalamoo, don’t be an oppressor or unjust!” Arabs do that, and I am speaking to them in their language. Allah Almighty has forbidden oppression as well as being an oppressor, and now Arabs are not obeying that holy, heavenly order, falaa tazhaalamoo, “Don't be oppressors!” Keep each other with justice. Now no one is keeping that order and they are falling into a black hole because they are saying, "We are Arabs." The entire Arab world is falling into that black hole.

O People, if you are falling into such a difficult position, letting Shaytan carry you, he is throwing you into a black hole, so leave that and follow the Lord of Heavens! Wa a`taasimoo bi-hablillaahi jamee`an, hold fast to the rope of Allah! He is calling for the end of every badness and oppression to their nations that is leading them to kill, as He never likes one to kill another. Therefore, it will become such a difficult position that will astonish people.

Allah Almighty is reaching to His real believers. This is also an address to the whole Christian world. The Seal of Prophets (s) is saying,

كيف أنتم إذا نزل إبن مريم فيكم وإمامكم منكم

kayfa antum idhaa nazala ibnu Maryam feekum wa imaamukum minkum.

“How will you be when the son of Mary descends upon you and your imaam is one of yourselves?”

Allah Almighty is sending Sayyidina `Isa (a), Jesus Christ, to people to arrange everything with holy heavenly laws so that it is clear and well known how we must act and live. What will happen to you if the Son of Mary descends down from Heavens as an imaam? Jesus Christ (a) is coming. Rasoolullah (s) said that Jesus Christ’s (a) coming at Fajr time will be so powerful and when Sayyidina Mahdi (a) sees that Jesus Christ reached the ummah, he will tell him, “You may be the imaam.” Sayyidina Muhammad (s) said, (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits), “The day I will come from the Heavens to Earth, Sayyidina Mahdi will be the imaam.” Sayyidina Mahdi (a) will lead the prayer and Jesus Christ (a) will pray behind him, and it will be an honor for the Muslims!

So many things are coming and so many ignorant people and fanatics are not accepting, which doesn't matter as they will also be taken away! And now in the Muslim world no one is speaking such subjects; they are running to save themselves by following Europeans, and they are on the wrong way. We must leave that 100% and keep Islamic manners, Islamic laws and Islamic justice! May Allah forgive us.

O People! As long as you are not accepting, you will be thrown away, taken away, and just ones will be coming to keep Islamic laws and the Muslims' honor, Islamic honor! May Allah forgive us.

O People! The whole world is in a black hole, asking, "How will we be saved?" but they are not saying, "We will follow holy commands." I am sorry to say this, but they are following democracy, which is against Islamic laws. As long as they follow European laws, which is baatil, falsehood, they will never be saved. Yes, we are speaking on this and I say this crisis will never end until people leave western ways and rules, and uphold Islamic rules. There is no way for Muslims to save themselves, because who they are following are not Muslims.

O Muslims! Leave the dirty ways of western life and keep the clean ways of Islamic life! Islam is promising you a clean life without any crises or difficulties. Keep it, and you will find yourself without difficulty.

May Allah forgive us for the honor of our most beloved Prophet, Rasoolullah, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits)


Tawbah yaa Rabbee, tawbah yaa Rabbee, tawbah yaa Rabbee, tawbah astaghfirullah. Tawbah yaa Rabbee, tawbah yaa Rabbee, tawbah yaa Rabbee, tawbah astaghfirullah. We repent to You and seek Your forgiveness!
