People are Seeking to Leave Reality

Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

22 January 2010 Lefke, Cyprus

As-salaamu `alaykum. Dastoor yaa RajaalAllah, madad. Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, la ilaaha illa-Llah, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, wa lillahi ‘l-hamd! Alfu salaat, alfu salaam `ala Sayyidina Muhammad Sayyidi ‘l-awwaleen wa 'l-akhireen wa `alaa aalihi wa sahbihi wat-tabi`eena bihim bi ihsaan ila yawmi ‘d-deen, ishfa` lana Yaa Rasoolullah.

Thumma as-salaam `ala jamee`il-anbiya wa ‘l-awliyaa as-saliheen, Yaa Rabbee ishfa`a lanaa ma`ahum. Thumma salaam `ala Sayyidina Qutb az-Aamaan, Sultan al-Awliyaa, who has been ordered to control everything on this planet. Madad, madad, madad Yaa Sayyidina, Yaa Hadrati ustaadh, Yaa Sayyidina Sultaan ‘l-Awliyaa.

O People! Listeners, as-salaamu ` alaykum. We are saying first of all, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani ‘r-rajeem. Then we are saying bismillahi ‘r-Rahmaani ‘r-Raheem. Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmaani ‘r-Raheem is the biggest grant from the Lord of Heavens to Mankind on this world! We are asking heavenly support from that one, the Master of this world, to support us to make this declaration easy for understanding and easy for practicing.

O our listeners, it seems that the life of Mankind on this planet is like a football match! One side is with the Prophet (s), one side with Shaytan. Shaytan is asking to make everyone football-people, and the Prophet is asking people to be against the football-people. Football-people are empty-heads. Like this football, you know? You must understand what comes to me to speak to you. I am one of you, nothing else, but they are putting a secret power, secret line to my heart, to my mind, to my tongue, to my actions, and they are using that. Here there is an instrument (camera) put to me and saying, “O my master, they are listening and keeping everything that you are speaking, but around you there are so many idiot ones, never listening, never understanding!”

As long as they are enjoying. Sometimes enjoyment is good but not all the time because it makes them maadhoor, excused. They are half donkeys, the upper looks a little bit like a man and lower, a donkey. Looking to me, not to forget anything (but) you are forgetting! I am also including myself with you. I am a shepherd, but a useless shepherd. A useful shepherd may carry a stick and then use like a sword for training people and then everything from goodness or badness is coming on them from above.

We are doing a very short association with you because you are tired. You are never tired when you are jumping, but all of you are getting tired for listening. Marhaban, welcome! What are you thinking? “What are we going to eat after this, where we must go.” No one is thinking where we are going after this life. Daily people are taken away, one, two, three and never taking any ibrah, wisdom. They are thinking, “Where can we going this afternoon or tonight or tomorrow?” They are thinking about the economic crisis. Before the economic crisis came, what did you do? You just wasted what was granted to you, and now you are thinking, thinking, thinking, and it is a problem of mathematics. Not everyone is going to bring a solution for a case like this. People are mostly not thinking and whoever is not thinking, they are at the level of animals, because animals don’t think. You can think but you are not using that ability and then you are falling. You are walking through a dangerous mine field, not looking where you are going and that can kill you. Now without thinking, people are working in the daytime and enjoying themselves at night.

O People! We are not coming to this life for enjoyment, no! We have been sent here to know something. We have been granted a mind and mentality, an ability that we can know and learn something for this life. But people are preferring to be drunk, not to be awakened ones. Day after day they are running to use more alcoholic drinks, getting drunk to lose themselves, stopping their abilities and losing their capacity to function. Therefore, it is a very dangerous time now. People are asking to leave their real being and run after another being because they are not happy. They can’t enjoy themselves in this life, therefore, they are running to change their position to another position. “We must leave this life and every problem in every moment, and go to another world to make ourselves free from any crisis that is giving us trouble. We are asking to change this situation and run away to another, imitated life.” It is not a real life, but an imitated life.

Everywhere now, from east to west and north to south, they are asking, “How can we save ourselves?” and all of them are running after shaytanic tricks. Shaytan is catching them in his traps. When they are entering a trap, they think they will be restful. They are changing their lives, but it is going to be worse than before. That is the reason for wars. People are preparing for a big war that is mentioned through the holy books. Before the Holy Qur’an, they were saying, “Armageddon.” The Holy Qur’an is saying, marhamatun kubrah. People are preparing themselves for the biggest curse that is going to come on them like hail!

O People! Don’t think that we are at the beginning of life on this planet. We are the coming as the last nation. We are near the Day of Resurrection. Everything is giving trouble tO People! and they are not enjoying anything. They are running to die or to kill. All nations are preparing so many terrible weapons and nuclear power. They are enjoying killing, destroying, and giving harm to each other. When they are running that way, a heavenly command is coming tO People! “If you are asking to kill and destroy each other with your weapons and this is your last desire or wish or target, then I am sending the power of shaking (earthquakes) on you. In only a minute or two or five, over six or seven degrees (points on the Richter Scale), it is beginning with your homes falling on you destroyed with Unseen powers. Now you can be happy because your only desire was to kill and to destroy.”

Your Lord will send on you in five minutes, less or more, an earthquake with a power of seven degrees or more, from east to west and north to south, with such a power to destroy that no man will be left walking in the streets. And this is a sign of the Last Day! All prophets, particularly the Last Prophet, Sayyidina Muhammad (s), were warning that zinah, adultery, is going to increase and then heavenly anger will approach more powerfully.

O People! You will reach a point to say, أَيْنَ الْمَفَرُّ ayna 'l-mafar, “Where may we run?” (75:10) People are surrounded everywhere by a terrible situation and they should ask, ayna 'l-mafar, “Where may we run?”

O People! You have been granted the highest honor through Creation, but you are not knowing that honor and you are not giving that highest respect. You forgot your Lord and He is leaving you like forgotten people, coming on you like rains.

O People! Change your way! This is not only for you but it is for whole nations. Your steps are on the wrong direction.

O People! Change your steps from wrong steps to right steps and you shall be protected, you shall be enlightened here and Hereafter.

O our Lord, forgive us. Send us from Your precious ones, honored ones, from Your servants, to correct our wrong steps so that heavenly cursing leaves us and heavenly blessings run on you, on ourselves!

May Allah forgives us for the honor of the most honored one in the Divine Presence, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana stands and sits.)

(Mawlana recites salawaat.) Allahumma salli `ala Sayyidina Muhammadin an-nabiyyi 'l-ummiyy wa`ala aalihi wa saahbihi wa sallam.
