Shaytan's Proposes You Marry Its Daughter

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

24 June 2011 Lefke, Cyprus

Suhbah after Jumu`ah

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, laa ilaaha illa-Llah wa lillahi 'l-hamd! Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, laa ilaaha illa-Llah wa lillahi 'l-hamd! Allahuma salli `ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa `ala aalihi wa sahbihi ajma`een.

O People! Our attenders through east and west. Madad yaa Sultan al-Awliyaa, madad yaa Rijaalallah, amidoona bi madadikum, salaam `alaykum. Salaam `alaykum yaa `ibaadAllah as-saaliheen. Amidoona bi madadikum. Allah, Allah. Fansurna `ala `adaaina. Salaam `alaykum, our attenders through east and west.

O People! Try to be with Allah Almighty's orders; try to be with your Lord, your Creator. Don't be no-mind ones, don't be drunk. Everything coming to people is from cursing because they are drunk ones. "Drunk" means they do not know whom they are, from where they came and to where they are going. Who made them appear in this life? It is so short a time. The first order of the Lord of Heavens, Allah Almighty (swt) was, (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Subhaan sen yaa Rabb, Sultaan sen yaa Rabb! We are Your weak servants! (Mawlana Shaykh sits)

We are saying, a`oodhu billah min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Run away from Shaytan and its traps! So many shaytans are running after everyone, so run away or you can be caught by a trap. There is a saying, "Everyday Shaytan brings one thing." That is this dunya, this worldly life, saying "O People! I have a beautiful girl!" Ptuuh (spit) on Shaytan. Everyday he says, "I have such a beautiful girl. Who is going to marry her? I am ready to make my daughter your wife, but this offer is only for 24 hours. Tomorrow I will again bring her to more people and ask them, "Who among you likes to be my son-in-law?" The Egyptians, Palestinians, Turks, Iranians, I have so many asking for my daughter, but whichever of you will be the first one, I will give my girl as his wife! She is such a beautiful girl."

Shaytan's daughter is this dunya, which he decorates with every ornament, saying "O Pakistani people! Are you ready to marry my beautiful daughter, older than me 100 times but still so fresh, day by day looking like a monkey." People look. "Yes, come! I will make my beloved daughter your pretty wife! Only I may say that its beauty changes from early morning to early evening. Before she is so white and pretty, but when the sun sets even I don't care to look at her. But you may enjoy her daily and tomorrow I will bring her adorned in new ornaments, changing daily up to the Last Day. Everyday I will bring my beloved daughter, dunya, for you. That is my biggest trap! I am preparing my beloved daughter particularly for the last group of Mankind, before the Day of Resurrection. Therefore, O people, be quick to reach my beloved daughter, to be happy with her here and Hereafter, from sunrise to sunset! Then you will sleep and awake in the morning, and ask, 'Where is my pretty bride? Where is she?' I will answer, 'Come, she is here,' and who gives me the most, I will give my pretty daughter to him! O People! Don't be foolish idiots! Keep her tonight. I will adorn her tonight and tomorrow you will see, 'O, what a very beautiful face! Such a sweet bride for me.'"

O People! Some have begun to run after it, from early morning up to late night, becoming more foolish each day. They are killing one another, which is the biggest sin. For what are they fighting and killing? For Shaytan's daughter. They are killing, giving trouble, and making every wrong thing, and after sleeping they awake in the morning, saying, "Where it is?" but (the charms of this life) just passed away.

O People! Allah (swt) granted you a very short life. Whatever you are collecting is for dunya, then finally, when you will open your hands you will be fed up and tired, and your soul will be taken away, and everything that you ran after will be finished.

O People! All prophets, peace be upon them, came to Mankind and said, "O People! Don't be cheated, otherwise it will be difficult for you when you leave this life and are buried underground, and on the Day of Resurrection."

O People! Allah Almighty is saying to you, "I granted you jawhar, more than any pearls or diamonds, to reach that one and bring it to Me, but in your life on this planet you only gave that precious diamond to Shaytan's daughter and now you are coming to Me, saying, 'This is so difficult!'"

O People! One day the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s), (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits) sat after the morning prayer and asked the Sahaabah (r), "Did anyone have a dream?"

One Sahaabi replied, "Yaa Rasoolullah! Last night I saw a dream but I never understand what I dream."

Prophet (s) said, "What is that?"

That Sahaabi narrated, "I was looking in a very big space, like a field, all green, and then there was a minbar, (the pulpit which the Friday khateeb speaks from). I saw you, yaa Rasoolullah, coming and beginning to climb that minbar, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven steps, and you sat down."

The Seal of Prophets (s) said, "O my companion! That dream is an indication that Mankind should be in dunya 7000 (years). Adam (a) was First and I am the Last. That means the Day of Resurrection is now approaching. When I come and 1000 (years) finish, the Day of Resurrection will begin. "

Now we are finishing (this world); we just finished 7000 years and now we are in a space or time that is reaching the Day of Resurrection. From that time up to today there are 1432 years, or you may say 1500 years, and then will come the Last Day.

O People! Don't be cheated by Shaytan, as if you are going to live a long, long, long life. No, beware! The Last Day is behind your doors! That narration is from fifteen centuries before, when the Seal of Prophets (s) informed us about the Signs of the Last Day, Yawm al-Qiyamah. Now we are in it. We have passed through 7000 years and have come near the end. We are going and what are you thinking, what are you waiting for now?

O People! Take your care for the Day of Resurrection. Leave drunkenness and think on it, as Judgment Day is approaching and you will be taken to the Divine Presence for judgment. It is enough that you are running after dunya! Today we are in dunya and tomorrow to akhirah, the Last Day! May Allah forgive us. Everything that we see and hear are Signs of the Last Day. Try to keep your faith, try to keep your obedience, and try to be good servants for Your Creator, Allah Almighty. Ameen yaa Rabb! Anta ar-Rabb! Anta ar-Rabb! We are asking forgiveness; forgive us and grant us a good end for this life, when we will come to Your Divine Presence, for the honor of the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)!
