As-salaamu `alaykum (Mawlana Shaykh Nazim stands.) Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, laa ilaaha illa-Llah. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, wa lillahi 'l-hamd! As-salaatu wa ’s-salaam `alaa Sayyidi 'l-Awwaleen wa ’l-akhireen, Sayyidina Muhammadin wa `alaa aalihi wa sahbihi ajma`een wa `alaa sa’ir al-anbiyaa wa ’l-mursaleen wa man tabi`ahum bi ihsaan ila Yawm ad-Deen. (Mawlana Shaykh Nazim sits.) Madad, yaa Sultan al-Anbiya!
O People! As-salaamu `alaykum! Greetings to the believers from heavenly peoplem for the honor of the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh Nazim stands and sits.) Allah Almighty is greeting him (s) and his nation, particularly in this holy month of Ramadan. Heavenly ones are also greeting the nation of the Seal of Prophets (s), and if they hadn’t accepted Sayyidi 'l-Awwaleen wa ’l-akhireen as the Seal of Prophets, Allah Almighty would have never granted them to be prophets in the first place. Every honored one in Creation is taking honor solely for the honor of Prophet (s). Those who have been honored by their Lord, including prophets, could not have attained those stations if not for the honor of Prophet (s). All of Creation, including Mankind, jinn and angels, are asking to be granted honor for the sake of that honored one (s). Allah (swt) gives honor to those who honor His Prophet (s), so we must be happy that Allah Almighty has granted us to be from his nation. May Allah grant us to follow on the same steps, to honor that one (s) who has been granted honor from pre-Eternal up to Eternity.
O People! O Mankind! You must try to learn something for your life. Why are we in Creation, in existence? The Lord of Heavens never creates something without a reason; anything that is granted must be for a reason. The Children of Adam were not created except that the Lord Almighty first created His most beloved one (s) and appointed him as muwassil, His representative and intermediary. When the Lord of Heavens created the Seal of Prophets (s) it was for a reason, and he was first created in the Divine Presence. Allah Almighty does not even create an atom without a reason, which is to give honor for His most beloved servant and honored representative (s).
The Seal of Prophets (s) was created to be the representative of The One Who created him and His Creation. No one knows when Creation came into existence. His representative has been dressed with such honor for Eternity with what no one else was granted before. For the Prophet’s honor, the Lord of Heavens is giving honor to Mankind. Therefore, Mankind was created for his honor! All honor has been granted to the Seal of Prophets (s) the Lord's representative, or the “crown prince,” if we may say that. Every king has a crown prince and Sayyidina Muhammad (s) is that one, as there can only be one crown prince! A king may have twenty princes, but the honor of being a crown prince is only for one, not others.
The Lord of Heavens! The Lord of Everything! No one knows Allah Almighty's position, as it is impossible to know. Allah Almighty was asking to be known, so He created the Seal of Prophets (s) and his nation, and no doubt all nations belong to him! So we have been honored to be the Lord's “representatives,” who are in need to know their crown prince. People know Allah Almighty is Malik ul-Mulook, the King of Kings, but no one knows the beginning or the ending of His Kingdom. He asked to be known, so He brought the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s) in Creation. (Mawlana Shaykh Nazim stands and sits.) He created everything, and He wanted to be known and seen, so He made the Seal of Prophets (s). He brought him from His Divine Presence as a sign that he should be on behalf of his Creator for all Creation when they asked, "Where is our Lord?"
It is impossible to see Allah Almighty, as He is Malik ul-Mulook, Sultan of Sultans! However, He has a crown prince, who must have his Lord's attributes or otherwise He cannot be known. So from pre-Eternity to Eternity, Allah Almighty granted the Seal of Prophets (s) to be for all creatures who were asking about their Lord’s Existence. Regarding everything in Creation, people may ask, "To Whom does this existence belong?" and they may reach through that one whom the Lord of Heavens made Crown Prince (s) for all Creation! Allah Almighty is not in need of a crown prince, but creatures are in need, as they cannot reach the real existence of their Lord. Therefore, He brought one from His unknown Majestic Oceans to be His Crown Prince. This is a subject no one can enter into, finished!
We have been honored to be from his nation and to know something, and that knowledge is giving people honor, as without knowledge there is no honor! He Almighty is asking to give honor for His Creation, ma`arifatullah, to know about their Lord. Therefore, Allah Almighty sent 124,000 prophets representing the Seal of Prophets (s), the Crown Prince, throughout their nations. The more you know, the more you will reach glory and majesty from heavenly ones!
O People! We think we have been created by chance, but no! Everyone was created in a particular form and understanding. Man is the most important creature among all Creation, from pre-Eternity to Eternity. Try to learn this, that all prophets came to open a door for their nations to be honored with such heavenly honors! But people have no minds; they never use their understanding to know something about this life. I am sorry to say that peoples’ understanding is only to kill each other and to sit on a seat that has no value. That is their main purpose or target, to sit on a chair that has no value, and they are leaving behind the real treasures, running to be donkeys for their egos or for Shaytan, and running after their donkeys' desires.
This is the reason why people in our days are preparing themselves to kill and destroy; that is their target. Now everyone is putting the power of technology in their hands, using nuclear missiles and atomic bombs as they like, but this is not the real identity for Mankind! People have now reached a level under that of animals, who are not trying to make such terrible weapons against each other. Through technology, Mankind is trying to reach a position in order to kill everyone and therefore, their levels are coming down, down, down. Mankind is approaching darkness and positions of the dark world, and the Lord of Heavens is showing them black holes, saying, “O People! If you are not accepting the honor I have granted you, you will be thrown in those black holes and there will be no more chance for you return to existence and reach honor!” May Allah forgive us.
O People! We are approaching the last days of Ramadan. Leave behind dunya, material aspects, and come to reach heavenly aspects that you have been honored through him (s).
O People! Keep your honor and ask for much more honor. May Allah forgive us. I am weak; all of us are weak, and our weakness is taking us to unknown worlds and dominions. If you bring a key, it is going to open for you unknown treasures and territories. If not, you are going to be zero, zero, zero, and may lose your chance to be in existence, and that will be a pity.
May Allah forgive us for the honor of the Seal of Prophets (s), whom Allah Almighty created, from pre-Eternal to Eternal. Try to be Eternal ones; don't be cheated by Shaytan and your egos. May Allah forgive us. Tawbah, yaa Rabbee! Tawbah, yaa Rabbee! Tawbah, astaghfirullah. Forgive us, O our Lord! Give us an understanding of what it is to be Your servants and of the servanthood that was granted to us.
