People forgot their Lord, so Allah also forgot them.
نَسُواْ اللّهَ فَنَسِيَهُمْ
Nasoo Allaha fanasiyahum,
They have forgotten Allah, so He has forgotten them. (At-Tawbah, 9:67)
It is a holy verse. Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem. Everything is mentioned in the Holy Qur’an, what has passed and what is yet to come. The Holy Qur’an is naatiqiyun, which means it is not seized by time, but rather it is for every era!
Our way is association and the good is in the gathering. Nothing has remained in the Islamic world now; therefore, who can be heard, listened to and obeyed? What I mean is, people are still there but they and the awliyaa have disappeared in this time so that it has become a field for tyrants only. May the curse of Allah be upon them!
The order/judgment of Allah is not changed or modified. All these groups that follow their own desires will be defeated, no doubt. Hisham Effendi! If the whole world gathers against the Truth and denies the followers of Truth, then they will be defeated because the Truth is always elevated and nothing can be higher! Therefore, had the Muslims not stood against Islam they would have been victorious.
الم غُلِبَتِ الرُّومُفِي أَدْنَى الْأَرْضِ وَهُم مِّن بَعْدِ غَلَبِهِمْ سَيَغْلِبُونَ
Alif. Lam. Meem. Ghulibati ‘r-Rum fi adnaa ‘l-`ardi wa hum min ba`di ghalabihim sayaghliboon.
Alif. Lam. Meem. The Roman Empire has been defeated in a land close by, but they, (even) after (this) defeat of theirs, will soon be victorious. (Ar- Rum, 30:1-3)
Sadaq-Allahu 'l-`azheem. It points to the time we are in. Madad yaa Sultaan al-Awliyaa. Even though the believers who are present were very few in that verse, it is mentioned who will be victorious. The Rum were defeated, by those who were mushrikeen, ascribing partners to Allah, after which they were victorious.
All these groups who believe in Allah and His Messenger and those who follow the Shari`ah are seen as defeated, but in spite of that Allah (swt) will support them against those who defeated them. These are good tidings in this time of tyrants. It is seen that the tyrants now are successful over the Muslims. Even if it is apparent from the outside that they are victorious, soon they will be defeated. The words of the people of the Truth will rise because their words are the words of Allah and the words of Allah are the highest! Let others do whatever they want to do.
اعْمَلُوا مَا شِئْتُمْ إِنَّهُ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ بَصِيرٌ
`amaloo maa shi’tum innahu bimaa ta`maloona baseer.
Do what you will as verily He sees (clearly) all that you do. (al-Fussilat, 41:40)
let them do what they want but they should know that one day the Truth will become clear and they will be under the feet. From the first level they will fall down to the lowest, to zero level.
Qur’an is naatiqiyun and it informs about the events that will take place in the last era. Don’t fear.
وَاصْبِرْ وَمَا صَبْرُكَ إِلاَّ بِاللّهِ وَلاَ تَحْزَنْ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلاَ تَكُ فِي ضَيْقٍ مِّمَّا يَمْكُرُونَ
Wa ’sbir wa ma sabruka illa bil-Lahi wa laa tahzan `alayhim wa laa taku fee dayqin mimma yamkuroon.
And do thou be patient, for thy patience is but from God, nor grieve over them, and distress not thyself because of their plots. (an-Nahl, 16:127)
(Mawlana Shaykh stands)
إِنَّ اللّهَ مَعَ الَّذِينَ اتَّقَواْ وَّالَّذِينَ هُم مُّحْسِنُونَ
Inn Allah ma`a ‘Lladhina at-taqaw wa ‘Lladhina hum muhsinoon.
For God is with those who restrain themselves, and those who do good. (an-Nahl, 16:128)
(Mawlana Shaykh sits) Finished! If anyone likes to be victorious forever then he will be with Allah, Who will give him the good tidings, “Truly Allah is with those who fear Him and those who do good.”
SubhaanAllah! Let it be; let them do whatever they want to do, `aamalu ma shi’tum, but they will be questioned about every work they did and will be judged according to their actions. Allah (swt) judges with justice and Truth, and on the Day of Judgment He will say, “This is your work, so this will be your punishment.”
Then you will learn when you will be thrown in Hellfire. When you are taught your lesson, then you will be taken from the lowest level to the highest, but if you don’t learn you will stay with the People of the Fire forever, for Eternity!
The Glorious Qur’an, mashaa-Allah, has all the knowledge and the Truth that cannot be comprehended by human beings, except the one who has permission may speak. If they believe then it is good for them and, if not, Allah will take them away from the face of the Earth.
Allah Almighty is Jaleelun Akbaru ‘l-Akbar! He will not descend to take revenge from those unbelievers; an atom can take revenge on them and remove them, so there is no need for an army.
The Kingdom of Allah cannot be counted, it is endless, Subhanahu wa Ta`ala, Glorified and Almighty be He!
From what we are in, no one can prove himself as innocent because his ego is the base or spring of sins, oppression, and disobedience to Allah (swt). That is the material of the ego.
فَمَن يَعْمَلْ مِثْقَالَ ذَرَّةٍ خَيْرًا يَرَهُ
Faman ya`mal mithaqaala dharratin khayran yaraah.
Whoever does one atom of goodness will see it. (az-Zalzalah, 99:7)
Listen to the advice from Heavens for human beings, and do not follow your egoistic desires or you will be destroyed. Destruction has many meanings: destruction of the ego, destruction of humans, destruction in the world and in the Hereafter, destruction before passing away and after also.
The types of people in this world, subhaanAllah! Allah Almighty sent prophets and the Last of All Prophets, Sayyidi 'l-Awwaleen wa ’l-Akhireen (s), Master of the First and of the Lasts, was sent with the balance of Haqq. Any action that a person does individually or in a group is weighed and judged on the balance of Haqq. There is no action which is without any reward or punishment. For every work there is reward or punishment, either good or bad. The bad ones will not reach what they like here or Hereafter, and the good ones will and also they will find what they like in front of them.
SubhaanAllah! Ask from Allah to make you firm on the True Path. Whatever is opposing this will be thrown away so that something else comes in its place and protects them. When inaayatullah, protection from Allah comes, the servant is not in need to manufacture anything or to fight with it. If Allah Almighty gives you something, the whole world cannot come against you. You will be able to throw them in the valley of destruction, which is known as a black hole, finished! No news will come from them and they will be taken away.
The person who destroys himself does whatever he likes: `amal ma shi’tum. In the end they will be either in the world of light or the world of black holes, removed here and Hereafter.
Wisdoms are with our Lord. His divine grants and the reason of His grants to His servant is that they have himmah, zeal, as they seek Him. The disobedient cannot find pleasure, rather there is only bitterness for them. They disappear from the Creation and never come back again except for Ahlu ’l-Iqrar, the Owner of Truth. They are protected by Allah Almighty for Eternity, to the extent that no one knows about.
May Allah open our chests for us and widen our understanding, and show us the Light so we may walk with it, here and Hereafter! Return and seek that Light! It is a divine order, subhaanAllah, a holy verse:
يَوْمَ يَقُولُ الْمُنَافِقُونَ وَالْمُنَافِقَاتُ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا انظُرُونَا نَقْتَبِسْ مِن نُّورِكُمْ قِيلَ ارْجِعُوا وَرَاءكُمْ فَالْتَمِسُوا نُورًا فَضُرِبَ بَيْنَهُم بِسُورٍ لَّهُ بَابٌ بَاطِنُهُ فِيهِ الرَّحْمَةُ وَظَاهِرُهُ مِن قِبَلِهِ الْعَذَابُ
Yawma yaqoolu ‘l-munafiqoona wa ‘l-munafiqaatu li ’Lladhina amanoo anzuroona naqtabis min noorikum qeela arji`u wara’akum faltmisoo nooran faduriba baynahum bisoorin lahu baabun baatinuhu fihi ar-rahmatu wa zhahiruhu min qibalihi al-`adhaab.
One day will the hypocrites, men and women, say to the believers, "Wait for us! Let us borrow (a light) from your light!" It will be said, "Turn ye back to your rear! Then seek a light (where ye can)!" So a wall will be put up between them, with a gate therein. Within it will be mercy throughout, and without it, all alongside, will be (wrath and) punishment! (al-Hadid, 57:13)
He asks His servant to follow the light, saying, “Don’t come to Me without the Light. If you come to Me without the light, I will throw you in the Fire.” Those who come with light will be guided to the Heavens and the world of Malakoot, (Heavenly Dominion) to the world of Jabaroot (Dominion of Divine Grandeur) and higher.
The order for everyone from the beginning up to the end is, faltamisoo noora. This is the target from the Lord of Heavens and the Earth, Whose addressing and words are continuous, for Eternity. He is asking from His servants to follow the Light, but people only understand this dirty world and they run to reach things which have no value before the Lord Almighty.
Allah Almighty wants to see whether His servant will come with Light or not. This is the order from Allah Almighty from the beginning until the end, and the prophets gave this message, “O People! Follow the light.” Did the people understand this? No. They only understand to run after dunya and that their hearts will be content with whatever is related to the world. They want to collect from the worldly pleasures, which are nothing!
O People! Faltamisu noora! Don’t run after anything other than noor, because it has no value before the Lord of Honor and Might, (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Glorified and Almighty is He. O our Lord! Make us firm on the path of Truth and grant us understanding for the sake of Your Holy Prophet (s), to keep our steps and follow the Light, and to return to You with the Light. O Lord of the Heavens and the Earth!
