A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. Dastoor. Madad. (Mawlana Shaykh stands). Laa ilaaha illa-Llah, Laa ilaaha illa-Llah, Laa ilaaha illa-Llah Muhammadur Rasoolullah, `alayhi wa salaatullah wa salaamuh Allahuma zid nabiyyuka habeebika Sayyidina Muhammad (s) `izzan wa sharafan nooran wa surooran, farhan wa sultaana. (Mawlana Shaykh sits). Madad.
Thumma as-salaatu wa 's-salaam `alaa jami`i 'l-anbiyaa wa ‘l-mursaleen wa man tabi`ahum bi ihsaanin ila yawmi 'd-deen. And khusoosan, especially our salute for the controllers of this world, Qutb az-Zamaan and Qutb al-Mutasarrif, who are under Divine Command and who are doing their best for people and for Creation. As-salaamu Allahi `alaykum, to our attenders also. As-salaamu Allahi `alaykum. Yes, every time you say, As-salaamu Allahi `alaykum, blessings come from Heavens. When blessings are coming to you, they make you strong and powerful. Then you are an accepted one, an honored one, and a praised one. ( Mawlana Shaykh stands) As-salaamu `alaykum, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. (Mawlana Shaykh sits)
O our Attenders! We are saying, as-salaamu `alaykum to who are on the lowest of the Heavens, highest from the Earth and going up; that is a level for common people. And all the prophets came to take them up, to stop them from accidentally falling down. They are aiming to take people up higher and higher.
O our Attenders! Hear and listen. Listen and try to understand. Understanding is a heavenly grant, to understand from holy ones' declarations. If they do not understand from holy addressing, then theirs is the level of animals. They are making me say, "level of donkeys." Try to save yourselves from being on a donkey’s level. What is a donkey's level? We must speak on it, inshaa-Allah. And we are saying, A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. O our Lord, we are running to you, not to stay on the level of donkeys, because the level of animals is a shame for Mankind! To have come from Heavens and be on the level of donkeys is shameful for people. But they are not understanding, and carrying that is their responsibility. Every day I am asking, "O our Lord, give us a chance not to be at a donkey’s level!" And I am fearing, as anytime we can be asked to leave this life and come up. I fear that when I am called, I fear leaving on the level of a donkey. That is shameful for Mankind! That is the real aim of all the prophets' teachings. Laa hawla wa laa quwatta illa billahi 'l-`Aliyyu 'l-`Azheem.
And we are saying, Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem! (Mawlana Shaykh stands) O our Lord, open for this declaration, and open understanding for our attenders, for the honor of Your most honored servant! (Mawlana Shaykh sits) Allah, Allah. Allah, Allah. Now we give our salaam. After saying Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem, we say, as-salaamu Allahi `alaykum for common believers. And I have been ordered to speak, especially to those people whom claim they are Salafi `ulamas. Either you must teach someone, or someone must teach you! Don't say, "We just reached the level of honor, the level of understanding, the level of knowledge." We must try to do something for ummatu 'l-habeeb, the nation of the Seal of Prophets, (Mawlana Shaykh stands) peace be upon him. O our Lord, give him much more praising and honor. (Mawlana Shaykh sits)
Yes, we must try to do something for the benefit of the nation of the Seal of Prophets (s). It is important to give something to ummatu 'l-habeeb, the nation of the Seal of Prophets (s). If anyone is doing something, every day, drop by drop, it will make a lake and the lake will become a river. Therefore, we must try daily, at least, to give something to the nation of the Seal of Prophets (s). Give daily from your knowledge to people, even if it is just one drop; one drop to give them raghabaat, desire. Make common people ask for something. Try to waken their desire to take some benefit for themselves for here and Hereafter. `Ulamas' mission is coming from the heavenly ones. Heavenly ones are all the prophets, peace be upon them, because they are asking to give people some benefit. Things of benefit on this planet are like an ocean. Therefore, it is possible that if we are asking a number of good things, we won't be able to add them, there are so many! Try to teach common people even one thing that gives benefit to them and the people around them. Why? Perhaps they are going to be that group of people who will be awakened with that! And you may say, "Wake up! Wake up, my brother! Wake up and look! So many jewels are in front of you. Take one of them!" And `ulama’s mission is to try to wake up common people. O People! Come and say Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem.
O People! Come and say, Allahu Akbaru 'l-Akbar! (Mawlana Shaykh stands) "Wake up! You are eating stones on this planet! Come and eat something from heavenly pleasures!" (Mawlana Shaykh sits) Don't think that because you are eating and drinking and dressing in new fashionable clothes, that will give you pleasure. You are riding in new fashionable cars or you are living in new palaces, but they are not giving you pleasure.
O Salafi `ulamas, you must say this, don't fear from mulook. No! You must speak haqq (truth). You must say, "You are king, you are sultan, you are president, but, O our king! Don't be cheated by such new things from this life, thinking these new clothes will give you pleasure, or being in your palaces will give you pleasure, or dancing and playing with beautiful girls and women will give you pleasure. No! Fear from Allah Almighty, that in an unexpected moment the tap will close and you are going to be like a dry spring! Instead of reaching pleasure, fear that you are going to be thrown from this life, not finding pleasure but only miseries! You may fall, even if you are living in palaces with beautiful ladies. You may be with them, but you are going to be thrown down in a world of darkness!"
Is it not true, Salafi `ulamas? Why you are not saying by which means Mankind may reach pleasure? Why you are not saying? Why you are not saying, "Don’t be cheated, that so many beautiful suits are giving you pleasure." That one's understanding is less than the understanding of an ant. It is your daily mission, O Salafi `ulamas, because the Holy Command of Allah Almighty says, (Mawlana Shaykh stands)
وَذَكِّرْ فَإِنَّ الذِّكْرَى تَنفَعُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ
wa-dhakkir fa inna 'dh-dhikra tanfa`u 'l-mu'mineen,
So remind, for reminding benefits the believers. (Adh-Dhariyat, 51:55)
Why are you not keeping that order? That order is daily, monthly, or only for some occasions? No. Always you are fa-dhakkir. (Mawlana Shaykh sits) Fa-dhakkir. Allahu Akbar!
O Salafi `ulamas! And you have a heavy responsibility, because you are not teaching people how they can reach pleasure here and Hereafter. That is your mission, not to say, "We are Salafi `ulamas,” or, “We are doctors of Shari`ah." If you are doctors of Shari`ah, why are you not saying to people which things will keep them in pleasure? Say! You only know how to say, “We are Azhari `ulamas, we are doctors, we are VIPs.” It is not enough. You will be punished, today in dunya, tomorrow in uqbah. Life is ending and we don’t know when. Don't be cheated by Shaytan, his teachings and his mentalities. Don't be cheated by that. Look at what the Lord of Heavens sent through His most beloved one for his nation, to make his nation be in pleasure here and Hereafter. What are the aspects that keep us in pleasure? Do you know? If you do not know, then common people will never know! Therefore, we are not happy to be at the donkey's pleasure level. Leave a donkey's pleasure level and come to the pleasure level of Mankind: where they are trying to reach Real Pleasure, here and Hereafter. Why are you not saying? Shaykh Hisham Effendi? (Mawlana Shaykh Hisham replies, "They are afraid, Sayyidi.") Very important!
Therefore, people are fighting with each other. They are killing, making troubles, miseries, and battles. They are destroying and burning. For what? Because they are asking for pleasure! When they feel that they can't reach that pleasure, they become majnoon, mad. Then they are asking to kill, asking to burn, asking to destroy. That is not the level of Mankind! O People, through east and west! You must know it! Because all the prophets (a) were coming from Heavens to give you pleasure here and Hereafter! Sayyidina Abraham (a) never came to give to you pleasure for this life, but he was asking you to reach an endless pleasure through this life. And his sulaala, whole generation, hundreds and thousands prophets, all of them came to take you to the pleasure area, to keep you from falling into misery oceans, so that you do not to fall in a black hole. All prophets (a) surrounding their nations, wanted to stop them falling into black holes. But instead people are asking to run and to fall in black holes because their teacher, Shaytan, is making them! He says to them, “O people, that is a black hole. If you get in, you can find endless pleasures and endless enjoyment!” That is the biggest lie, and Shaytan is the biggest liar. But people are following him, and not following prophets!! What is that mentality?
And everybody is leaving human nature! Look at what you are doing! Is it good or bad? You are not using a scale. Allah Almighty is saying, (Mawlana Shaykh stands),
Wa wad`a al-meezaan
He Placed the Scales. (Surah Ar-Rahman 55:7)
(Mawlana Shaykh sits). Wa wad`a al-meezaan, the Lord of Heavens has placed a scale to know what is good and what is bad, what is pleasure and what is misery. Why are you not using it? There is coming to you now antadhir. Antaadhiroo inna min al-muntaadhireen, a heavenly threat is coming to you now.
O People! Be a little bit patient about reaching the worst positions in your life! Wait, because you are not using a heavenly scale! Why are you not mentioning a heavenly scale to make people happy? For what did the Lord of Heavens put a scale? To make His servants be happy, yes or no? Why are you not speaking about the meezaan, of which the Lord of Heavens is saying:
أَلَّا تَطْغَوْا فِي الْمِيزَانِ
allaa tatghaw fi 'l-meezaan.
You shall not exceed (cheat) the measure. (Surah ar-Rahman, 55:8)
Keep mezaan; keep the scale true! Don't cheat on the scale, because you will end up with cursing coming on you. That is an important point.
O People! The Lord of Heavens is asking His servants to do their best, and He is granting enjoyment to His servants. Allah Almighty never likes His servants to be harmed or to be unhappy, to be in misery or to see them suffering. But when they are not hearing and listening to heavenly commands, they are throwing themselves in an endless black hole. A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Now we are running to Allah Almighty to save ourselves. Christians are calling Jesus Christ their "savior."Why isn't the Christian world using Sayyidina `Isa, Christ, as a scale, based on what was he saying, "I am a savior." Saving people from what? From falling into a black hole. "I came to save you. Don’t have any discussions about my creation, it is not for you. My Lord is Creator, and Creation comes into existence as He likes. It is not your responsibility to occupy yourselves with how I was created. ‘Who am I? For what I am coming?’ This you must ask, but not to make a field of questioning. I am a savior. I came to save you, here and Hereafter. Look at what I am advising for you. That is important! It is not important to research my creation; that is not for you, nor to run after a cross. Accept that what happened, happened. But you must follow the way on which I am calling you, to make you happy here and Hereafter. Why are you occupying yourselves with, maa laa ya`neehi, none of your concern? It is not for you to discuss or to fight to each other about my creation. Look at my mission, to save my followers from Shaytan and shaytanic ways."
Our scale belongs to Heavens, Shaytan’s scale belongs to this world and you should be punished daily, for years, for centuries, for discussing whether he was on the cross or not. "They made this cross for him and he was in miseries for this." It is not for you! What was his mission; that is important! His mission is to take his nation to the Divine Presence, pure, clean and honored.
May Allah forgive us. We must turn back from the wrong way. If not, Shaytan is going to carry people to black holes, which is fire. They will not be able to save themselves from the flames of that fire. Come and listen to this heavenly statement for all nations! Ameen yaa Rabb! Keep us on Your right way, not to be cheated by Shaytan. Khazahullah! May Allah make Shaytan disturbed, punished and thrown away!
O People! Be enemies of Shaytan. Try to be friends of prophets, friends of good ones, then you should be happy here and Hereafter. Correct your steps, O Mankind of the 21st Century! If not, you are authorizing your punishment! May Allah forgive us. Bi-jaahih yaa Rabbee man anzaltah `alayhi Surat al-Fatihah, "By the honor of the one to whom You Revealed al-Fatihah." Ameen.
May Allah forgive us and send us a savior. And all prophets are saviors, but particularly Jesus Christ, peace be upon him, is the also one of the main saviors. He will come. We hope he is on his way to Earth, to make everything clear about himself and for the Seal of Prophets (s) and for their Lord Almighty. (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Allahu Akbaru 'l-Akbar! Laa ilaaha illa Anta Subhaanak, Laa ilaaha illa Anta Subhaanak, Laa ilaaha illa Anta Subhaanak! "There is no God but You, Glory be to You!" Subhaanak! Subhaanak! O our Lord, forgive us! (Mawlana Shaykh sits).
