SubhaanAllah, zhulma is coming, then the next day everything is upside down, no more mind, no more heart. ... May Allah (swt) send us His Mercy.
A`oodhu billahi mina ‘sh-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem.
Nawaytu 'l-arba`een, nawaytu 'l-`itikaaf, nawaytu 'l-khalwah, nawaytu 'l-`uzlah, nawaytu 'r-riyaada, nawaytu 's-salook, lillahi ta`ala fee hadha 'l-masjid.
Madad yaa Sayyidee, yaa Rasoolullah. Madad yaa Grandshaykh `Abdullah al-Fa'iz ad-Daghestani (q). Madad yaa Sayyidee, Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani (q).
A`oodhu billahi mina 'sh-Shaytani 'r-rajeem.Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. As-salaamu `alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh. Alhamdulillahi Rabbi 'l-`Alameen, wa ’s-salaatu wa ’s-salaamu `alaa ashrafi 'l-mursaleena Sayyidina wa Nabiyyina Muhammadin wa `alaa aalihi wa sahbihi ajma`een. Azh-zhulma laa yadoom wa in laa yudammar. Oppression will not last forever and if it does it will destroy itself and it will destroy everything.
Today we are living in oppression: either we are being oppressed or we are oppressing others. We have to be very careful in how we live, how we act and how we present ourselves and in what we do. No one is safe! Countries are in difficulties. Areas of the world where we expect to be peaceful, we are hearing about problems, fighting, killing, bloodshed, which is unacceptable to us and anyone else, everyone rejects that, but it exists and the poison is there. How to take away the poison, you have to think. Kalimat al-haqq, as the Prophet (s) said when asked, “What is the best of struggles?” he said, “Speaking truth to a tyrant.”
أفضل الجهاد كلمة عدل عند سلطان جائر
The best jihad is a word of justice (or a word of truth) before a tyrannical king.
(Related by Abi Sa`eed al-Khudree)
Today you want to say the truth, but as the Prophet (s) said, among the Signs of the Last Day is that yukhawwin al-ameen wa yu’amman al-khaa’in, “In the Last Days, it will be said the trustworthy one is not trustworthy and the untrustworthy becomes trustworthy.”
ويؤتمن فيها الخائن، ويخون فيها الأمين
In those days, the betrayer will be deemed trustworthy and the trustworthy one will be deemed a betrayer. (Ahmed, Ibn Majah)
Who has more influence doesn't care for people's lives but they care for their pockets, their money. So everything you touch there is poison in it. If you want to give a lecture, there is lot of poison in that lecture because of the oppression coming from every side making people to run away.
In that time, what did Allah (swt) say? The best is to flee to Allah.
فَفِرُّوا إِلَى اللَّهِ
Run to Allah (from all that is false and evil)! (Surat adh-Dhaariyaat, 51:50)
And this is our duty, to run away from what is bad to what is good. The Prophet (s) said the best struggle is kalimat al-haqq, to speak truth to a tyrannical king; therefore, don’t be an oppressor, afraid to say the word of truth, be someone who says the truth and don't care! Step on your ego and say the truth in everything, don't be an oppressor by spreading rumors, backbiting, speaking against people for no reason, cheating and deceiving people! Everyone must care for himself because dunya is ending; we are not predicting something that is not there. Allah (swt) said, iqtarabat as-sa`at w 'anshaq al-qamar. The Hour approached and the moon split.
اقْتَرَبَتِ السَّاعَةُ وَانشَقَّ الْقَمَرُ
The Hour (of Judgment) approached and the moon split. (Surat al-Qamar, 54:1)
Scientists and astronauts who went to the moon saw the split of the moon and some of them heard the adhaan on the moon and they became Muslim. Fa-firroo ila ‘Llah, run to your religion, run to the words that your Prophet (s) has mentioned! Listen to him and clean yourself, but you are not cleaning yourself and you are fighting for no reason, carrying weapons. We are never allowed to carry weapons and scholars do not let their students carry weapons. Those scholars who ask students to carry weapons are not scholars, they are coming against the Prophet (s), who said:
فكسروا قسيكم وقطعوا أوتاركم واضربوا سيوفكم بالحجارة فإن دخل يعني على أحد منكم فليكن كخير ابني آدم
Break your bows, cut your arrows and blunt your swords with stones, for if it [the Day of Judgement] comes upon any of you, you will be like the best of the Children of Adam. (Abu Dawood)
Prophet (s) said it is better to sit at home and break your bows and arrows, not to come out and kill someone innocent. How many innocent people are killed and how many are in prison for no reason, for someone’s doubts? Everyone has a duty to fix himself, to fix his communities, to fix his family, to fix his children, to fix his daughters, to fix whatever is broken today. Wherever you look, everything is broken and nothing is right. People are building on wrong foundations that are dividing the Ummah and humanity, but Allah doesn't burden anyone more than he can bear.
لاَ يُكَلِّفُ اللّهُ نَفْسًا إِلاَّ وُسْعَهَا
On no soul does Allah place a burden greater than it can bear. (Surat al-Baqarah, 2:286)
Why do you want to carry more than you need? It’s heavy on every one of us. Let us pray that Allah (swt) sends someone to bring back peace. That one is very well known in religion: Allah gave His secrets to Prophet (s) that one of his grandchildren will come in the Last Days.
لا تَقُومُ السَّاعَةُ حَتَّى تُمْلَأَ الْأَرْضُ ظُلْمًا وَجَوْرًا وَعُدْوَانًا، ثُمَّ يَخْرُجُ مِنْ أَهْلِ بَيْتِي مَنْ يَمْلَؤهَا قِسْطًا وَعَدْلًا ، كَمَا مُلِئَتْ ظُلْمًا وَعُدْوَانًا
The Hour will not arise until the Earth is filled with oppression and injustice and enmity, then from among my progeny one will come out who fills the Earth with fairness and justice, just as it was filled with injustice and enmity. (Al-Hakim in his Mustadrak)
“One of my grandchildren will come and fill the world with happiness after it has been filled with ignorance and oppression.” He is not going to fight. People will be attracted by him because he will be carrying the khilafah, the reality of Islam, the reality of Sayyidina `Isa and Sayyidina Musa (a). He will be joined with Sayyidina `Isa (a) and we as Muslims believe in Allah (swt) and we believe in His Prophet, Sayyidina Muhammad (s) and all His Prophets, and we believe that Sayyidina `Isa will return to Earth.
May Allah (swt) forgive us, and make us only to see goodness, because Allah does not look at dirtiness, He looks at clean things. Let us clean ourselves and our communities by telling them the truth, that everyone is mistaken and everyone is repenting to Allah and His Prophet, Sayyidina Muhammad (s). I know what I am saying is true, might be some people hear what I say and some do not, but at least we have said something that if Allah asks on the Day of Judgement, we can respond, “Yaa Rabbee. I said something, but they did not listen.” This is a message of scholars.
Wa min Allahi ‘t-tawfeeq bi hurmati 'l-Fatihah.
That is enough, 15 minutes; they did not want me to go further down the road.
