Allah, Allah. Dastoor, yaa Sayyidee. (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) Laa ilaaha illa-Llah, laa ilaaha illa-Llah, laa ilaaha illa-Llah Sayyidina wa Nabiyyina Mawlana Muhammadun Muhammadun Rasoolullah sall-Allahu `alayhi thumma 's-salaatu wa 's-salaamu `alayka `ala jami`eei 'l-anbiyaa wa 'l-awliya wa `alaa man tabi`ahum bi ihsaan ila yawmi 'd-deen.
(Mawlana Shaykh sits.) Madad, yaa RijaalAllah.
As salaamu `alaykum our Attenders and Listeners! It is not important to be an attender or listener; it is important to understand. So many people may be attending, millions of people may be attending and listening, but they are not understanding. Understanding ones are only a handful of people. They are valuable in the Divinely Presence and in the heavenly presence of the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.)
As-salaamu `alaykum, all saints, all believers, all good-tiding people, all good-working people. And we are saying, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem, bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. We must try to run away from the power of evil. We have been asked to run away from evil, whose teacher is Shaytan. And Shaytan is making countless trips to trap people, trying to take people from clean waters to dirty sewage channels. On one side are the prophets, and on another side, Shaytan. People are mostly after shaytanic ways, taking care for Shaytan and its ways, because they are finding a kind of pleasure when running in sewage channels. And they are not clean, they are dirty ones.
People are going to be in two sects: one, clean ones and the second, dirty ones. People living in this world are either clean or dirty. The Lord of Heavens (swt) is showing clean springs that give people a new pleasure every time, and making them to follow the prophets because they are giving people from heavenly springs. And the second are drunk ones running after dirty channels. If someone tastes from dirty channels, they quickly become accustomed to drinking that, as a person who is accustomed to drink wine every night, thinking about those drinks, to give him a little bit in pleasure. That is the position of common people accustomed to drink from dirtiness, taking pleasure from those dirty drinks.
You never find anything in dirty, sewage channels except for big rats. "We are commanding, 'O People! Come, follow us; you will be like us, happy in sewage. We are commanders here! We are kings! We are queens! And we are giving everyone who is joining us, a private title. Come here! (Mawlana Shaykh rings a bell, to summons.) O People! Come to sewage channels! We are giving you what you are asking for - titles!!'" People are asking, and when they are getting in, there is no way to save them. They are saying, "We were having the best dream, but now we are here!" If all prophets came together at the same time, to say, "Come to our side, you will find such sweet things! Follow us!" They would answer, "No! We haven't any time to follow you, we are here, one step and we are in." That is the mentality of drunk people.
We are asking forgiveness and safety from our Lord, not to fall in. Now, in our days, the Last Day is approaching as prophets declared, and warned people against every evil and against devils; you find them everywhere, full. They are preparing this life for making people physically and spiritually drunk! If they are seeing a good person in their clean life, walking on clean lines, following the prophets, the majority of them will say, "O, this is an old-fashioned one!"
They never ask to taste what those good, clean ones, are tasting. Shaytan, who is asking all people to follow him, is advertising to common people, everywhere, "Follow us to a high life! Follow us! A tasteful life! Come to us!" That is now the main purpose of the whole world, to run into sewage channels and never come out. They are even asking to die in it, such, that all dunya and all its people are never interested in spirituality. They say, "This just passed away, old-fashioned people may do that. We are modern people and we must follow our material being first, to satisfy it, and then if we can find time we may follow you." Can you ever imagine a rat asking to leave sewage channels to look at what is clean? You can't find that! They are born in it, they live in it, and they will die in it! I am sorry to say that people are claiming, "We just reached the top point of civilization." What is your civilization? Give us an understanding of the word "civilization."
I am asking all `ulamas now, what is your effort? What are you doing against that? People are running in dirty channels. Muslim `ulamas, what is your opinion of what we are saying? Particularly Salafu ‘s-Salih. What are you doing to make people follow the ways of Salafu ‘s-Salih, the good ones that passed away? If anyone is asking are you telling them "leave this or leave that." Are you saying it? No, you are not saying, that it is kufr! You must learn O Salafu 's-Salih `ulamas that the lifestyle of people now, is real kufr! Their lifestyle, from east to west and north to south is kufr!!! That is not the way that Allah Almighty is saying, astaidhubillah,(Mawlana Shaykh stands.)
وَأَنَّ هَـذَا صِرَاطِي مُسْتَقِيمًا
Inna haadhaa siraatee mustaqeema.
Verily, this is My way, leading straight. (Al-An`am 6:153)
Ayatu 'l-kareema? Haqq! Where is that lifestyle now? (Mawlana Shaykh sits.) Say! You must say, and you must begin with the lifestyle of the Seal of Prophets (s)! People may be kings, presidents, sultans, but you must begin saying, "Your lifestyle is against the heavenly rules of Islam. As long as you are living it, it is not for you to be on our side." You can't answer the Lord of Heavens on the Day of Resurrection! On the Day of Judgment, the Lord of Heavens will call everyone! O Salafi `ulamas! Why are you not teaching? Why are you not warning that their governing style is not Islamic? `Ulamas, doctors of Shari`ah, why are you not warning? "O People! Your lifestyle is not Islamic!" Why? Because you also are in that western lifestyle, and all Muslim countries are asking to open their hearts, their mentalities, their minds to western understanding!
The western understanding of real religion is just different from the understanding of Muslims. The real Salafu ‘s-Salih understood that western philosophy is not for you. Look to the sun-rising territories (eastern philosophies); enjoy this rising sun in oriental countries. Why are oriental countries saying that the best lifestyle is western, and they like western imagination and thinking? It is not Islam. Islam never accepts this; Islam rejects western lifestyles, because they are on wrong ways which are not clean. How will Allah Almighty support you (in that lifestyle)? And now the whole `aalam al-Islam, Muslim world is under the control of western countries? Why? Why are we accepting them and not establishing our real lifestyle?! Our Islamic lifestyle is so clear, like a moor on a full-moon-night, so bright! They are using black eyeglasses for Islam now, but for a western lifestyle they look through pink (rose-colored) eyeglasses, saying, "O! How beautiful and suitable for humanism." In Humanism (a branch of western philosophy), everything is coming from western countries. Why are you following them?
O `ulamas!You fear atomic bombs, and if so, you are not real believers. You must only fear Allah Almighty! He is dressing (believers) in heavenly armor. If the Lord of Heavens dresses his servants in heavenly armor, nothing can touch them! If they are not His servants, they will fear even a virus, saying, "That virus can kill us!" It can't kill unless the Lord of Heavens gives His permission; without it, that virus can never kill anyone, so don't fear! W 'attaqullah, w 'attaqullah, Trust in Allah! You must fear Allah Almighty.
O `ulamas! Why are you not examining school programs (curricula)? You are trying to make Man into the Lord of Heavens! If a human dies, how can he be a founder or a creator? Which one of them created anything? Why are you following that one when you and he are on the same line? How are you insisting to make monuments and statues, (like those in the time of ) Sayyidina `Ibraheem? O `ulamas, are you reciting the Holy Qur'an as a book of fairy tales? You think it is so? I don't think you are reciting it to gain understanding or a real meaning from that holy book.
Abraham, peace be upon him, lived among a nation of people that made idols, saying, "This one can do this, and that one can do that." And Abraham, peace be upon him, was the highest one among angels and prophets, after the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s). (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.) And he said, "O People! You are carving rocks, giving them a form and a name. That is 'Deus,' king of gods. What is that? A real god must have a power, such that it covers east and west, north and south, from the heavens to under the ground! One God is enough to do everything. How many 'gods' do you have? If they had the same power they would quarrel with each other, but you are making their forms (they did not create themselves). What is this foolishness? The Lord of Heavens can do anything. Why don't you understand that this world is created by 'Someone' that you can't understand; only as a drop for an ocean? Which one of your gods has such power? You may give it a form but you can't give it an authority or a power! How can it be your god if it was fashioned by your hands?"But people are heedless and drunk, never thinking on it.
I never heard the Lord of Heavens being discussed among students and professors in a university. Why are you not saying Salafi `ulamas? You only know how to say, "Don't do this because it is bid`a, kufr, m`aasiyyah, haraam, shirk!" Why are you keeping your tongue from speaking the Truth? Why are governments not putting holy books with endless Knowledge Oceans in universities to teach the young about their Creator? That is the core of this crisis. If everyone were to know his position in front of his Creator, that he has a big manor (domain) that he could reach, then he is going to say, Allah Hu Rabbee! Allah Hu Rabbee! La yazaal. (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.) We must change.
O People from east and west! The Lord of Heavens is asking from all of us to change our lifestyle and live according to holy commands. If not, then you will be punished here and Hereafter. Tawbah yaa Rabbee, tawbah yaa Rabbee, tawbah astaghfirullah!
(Sultan prays two raka'at Salaatu 'ash-Shukr.)
Yaa Allah! SubhaanAllah. Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, `Azeez Allah.
