Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

2 August 2010 Lefke, Cyprus

(Mawlana Shaykh stands) Dastoor yaa Sayyidi.

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, `Azeez Allah.

`Azeez Allah, Kareem Allah, Kareem Allah, Subhaan Allah! Sultaan Allah!

Subhaan Allah! Sultaan Allah! Subhaan Allah! Sultaan Allah!

Yaa Rabb al-`izzat wa 'l-`azhaamatal wal Jabaroot, zid Habeebika `izzan wa sharafan nooran wa surooran, sultaanan wa ridwaana. (Mawlana Shaykh sits)

O our Lord! You created us, min ghayri shay (from nothing), Only You are in Existence and nothing else! And our salute to Qutbu 'l-Mutasarrif, who is the heavenly representative on this planet, and through him our tazeem`at, glorifying is reaching to the Heavenly Presence of the Lord of Heavens.

And we are saying, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. O our Lord, we are running to You from shaytanic cursings. Say, (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem! Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem! Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem! (Mawlana Shaykh sits) That is the main point, through which everything is coming into existence! Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. Use it daily and say for every occasion, Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. You can't imagine what we have been granted from heavens by saying, Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem.

O our Attenders! Don't be heedless! My voice is so weak, but sometimes a heavenly voice is coming, before which no one is able to stand; perhaps they are going to fall down and their souls will leave their physical beings. So don't be heedless! Open your eyes, your ears, and your understanding! One voice from Heavens may make the whole world nothing, carrying all of existence to non-existence!

O our Attenders! O Mankind! What are you waiting for or expecting, a heavenly shouting (thunderous sound)?

O our Salafi `ulamas, you are never saying, "We are students, learners." No, you always have to say, "We are `ulamas." They are making me say this, and teaching me and urging me to declare amthaalakum, "your likes," of those who are so proud to be `ulamas. Say! What is your understanding? We are saying that a shout from Heavens may take away this world, disappearing! Are you reciting the Holy Qur'an? I think so. What does it mean? Why is Allah Almighty saying: (Mawlana Shaykh stands)

وَمَا أَنزَلْنَا عَلَى قَوْمِهِ مِن بَعْدِهِ مِنْ جُندٍ مِّنَ السَّمَاء وَمَا كُنَّا مُنزِلِينَ إِن كَانَتْ إِلاَّ صَيْحَةً وَاحِدَةً فَإِذَا هُمْ خَامِدُونَ

Wa ma unzalnaa `alaa qawmihi min ba`dihi min jundin min as-samaa'i wa maa kunna munzileen. In kaanat illa sayhatan waahidatan fa idhaa hum khaamidoon.

And We sent not down against his people after him any hosts from heaven, nor was it needful for Us so to do. It was no more than a single mighty blast (sayhat), and behold! they were (like ashes) quenched and silent. (36:28-29)

Haqq. Look. (Mawlana Shaykh sits) Haqq. It is a very important point. They are thinking that it is a game. They are thinking that life on this planet is a joke, people may enjoy themselves on this and nothing else. And our Holy Qur'an reciters are reciting but they are not taking care. In the beginning of this association, they are threatening people, saying, "O People! Keep your positions; if not, there may be a sayhat, like thunder; it may reach and take away everything on this planet."

And now we are coming to another point: they think it is a joke, saying, “We are not sitting here to make jokes.” You may make jokes among yourselves, but here is a very serious association that you must understand to save yourselves from heavenly punishment, which may reach as a thunder! What is the witness on that point? Are we not reciting Surat al-Yaseen ash-Shareef? Why is Allah Almighty repeating for us the history of what happened? What is the benefit to say, in kaanat illa sayhatan waahidatan fa idhaa hum khaamidoon? Why is the Lord of Heavens reminding, teaching, or training His servants? Yes. That was a terrible shouting, sayhat, in Madinat ul-Antakya, Antioch, the famous city in their time. Allah Almighty ordered Sayyidina Jibra`eel, Gabriel, peace be upon him, to shout, and perhaps 1000 thunders' power can’t reach the intensity of his shouting! From his shouting, all the city's people became like charcoal!

That is a warning to all, "O People! Keep your positions and good manners. Don't leave heavenly orders! Don't run after Shaytan and its ways." That is an ikhbar, declaration, and a warning for people not to be proud ones for something that will never give you any benefit, unless you are using it for the sake of Allah. What you have been granted from treasures and power (is a gift for which you should be happy and thankful). In old times, people were proud of their treasures, but now 21st century people are not proud of their treasures, but they are so proud as Shaytan is proud. Twenty-first century people are trying to come on the same level that Shaytan is on. Shaytan is not using treasures, but using such things and teaching heedless Mankind some secrets for this planet, tasarruf, acting, behavior, a grant that is coming to people to use some unknown power stations, what they call, "technology." A hundred years ago it was not well known, but in one century Shaytan taught its followers that secret authority that is given to people to fight against heavenly ones.

Now Shaytan is doing nothing else except trying to take away Mankind with that technology and to make all of Mankind its slaves. Its main aim is to take away belief from believers and leave them naked. When they see their nakedness, they run after shaytanic technology, just as when Adam (a) did something against the Lord's command, that dressing fell down and he ran to cover himself with something in Paradise. In our days, Mankind sees they have reached a level through which they look at themselves as dressed, but it is not enough for them and Shaytan is giving more and more teachings from its secret powers, saying, "O my followers! I have so many powers to make you even more powerful against Heavens and heavenly beings!" Therefore, 21st century people are asking to hide or protect themselves from so many kinds of heavenly curses, and Shaytan is giving much more authority than ever before, saying, "Do this and that, and through technology you can defend yourselves against heavenly powers."

Because they heard about what happened to the nations of Noah (a), Abraham (a), Moses (a), Jesus Christ (a) and thousands of other prophets, now they know and they are asking for a defense against heavenly powers! Therefore, they are running after it, saying, "Through our technology we may defend ourselves from everything from Heavens!" That is a shaytanic teaching, but they are not thinking that something is on Earth and something is over the skies; they are thinking that their simple powers are going to defend them from heavenly cursing or heavenly powers to take them away. They now have science and technology, which they think is enough to defend themselves.

Holy Qur'an is saying, "Look what happened to the people of Antakya.” What happened? They had a kingdom and everything to defend themselves, but the Lord of Heavens did not grant them armies. Previously, it never happened that Allah Almighty used armies against Mankind; sometimes He sent mosquitoes, small birds or such things. Really, Allah Almighty used sayhat, a shouting (thunderous blast) so loud you cannot imagine; it is such a terrible shouting that burns, making everything like coal. That is a warning. They think, "We are not in need to follow any way prophets bring, saying it is coming to us from heavenly centers. We don’t care!"

But now Allah Almighty is not making for them a shouting from up, but in themselves. I saw a terrible newspaper photo, saying the Americans are sending such a huge air carrier, 100,000 tons, full with nuclear bombs. When they drop it, it gives a huge shouting that finishes people. That is from them to them (human to human)! Because they are not believing in holy things, spirituality, or heavenly knowledge, Allah Almighty is leaving them to look at shaytanic projects to destroy humanity with every means on this planet. And it will be sayhat, a shouting that Shaytan taught Mankind that makes cities, countries, and continents scorched like black coal. This is given to those people who are not following holy orders, but following shaytanic methods to make this world scorched, like black coal! Through that story, Allah `Azza wa Jall was saying to people, "If you are not coming on the true way,but always following Shaytan, something may reach you that happened in past times." Allah Almighty is not using that; instead He is making them follow Shaytan's teachings, and that terrible thundering is making them fall down. May Allah forgive us!

The Holy Qur'an is saying something, and if you are looking in it you may see what is coming. Ignorant ones, shaytanic wolves of Mankind, are making people not to believe in or follow heavenly commands, heavenly messages, heavenly books, and heavenly messengers. That is their punishment; they are giving their punishment from among themselves! Asta`eedu billah. Allah Almighty is saying: (Mawlana Shaykh stands)

قُلْ هُوَ الْقَادِرُ عَلَى أَن يَبْعَثَ عَلَيْكُمْ عَذَابًا مِّن فَوْقِكُمْ أَوْ مِن تَحْتِ أَرْجُلِكُمْ أَوْ يَلْبِسَكُمْ شِيَعاً وَيُذِيقَ بَعْضَكُم بَأْسَ بَعْضٍ انظُرْ كَيْفَ نُصَرِّفُ الآيَاتِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَفْقَهُونَ

Qul huwa 'l-qaadiru `ala an yab`atha `alaykum `adhaaban min fawqikum aw min tahti arjulikum aw yalbisakum shiya`an wa yudheeqa ba`dakum baasa ba`din. Anzhur kayfa nusarrifu 'l-`ayaati la`allahum yafqahoon.

Say, "He is able to send punishment upon you from above you or from beneath your feet, or to bewilder you with dissension, and make you taste the tyranny one of another." See how We display the revelations so that they may understand. (6:65)

(Mawlana Shaykh sits) O our Salaafiyoon `ulamas! Are you understanding that? Why are you not making clear to people such secret teachings? There are well-known things that you may understand in the Holy Qur'an, but there are so many secret oceans of meanings! Why are you not warning people to keep their good manners, adab, in front of their Creator, to give their most high respect and obedience to their Lord? If not, now something is coming that has never happened before, and Allah Almighty is saying, "I am not using something that will come from up or from under their feet, but I am giving as an authority to those unbelievers, shaytanic groups and shaytanic followers, something to make nufoor, hatred between themselves, that they will kill each other using such weapons Shaytan has taught them." May Allah forgive us!

O People! Beware!

O our `ulamas, particularly Salafi `ulamas! Why are you not opening this to people? Why are you not using what the Seal of Prophets (s) used, those meanings in himself, basheeran wa nadheeran (bringer of glad tidings and a warner)? Why are you not using that nadheeran (warner) to people, because they have passed their hadd, went beyond limits, beyond what they are permitted to reach and no passing after that. But they are obeying, so when they pass that limit, heavenly thundering comes on them. I don't know, the coming days, coming months, and coming years are going to be terrible for Shaytan and its followers. Don't be followers of Shaytan; try to be followers of the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammed (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits) Allahuma, yaa Rabb, forgive us and send us someone who may collect weak servants to You through the last warner, Sayyidina Mahdi (a).
