The Downfall of Mankind Through Technology

Dastoor, yaa Sayyidee. (Mawlana Shaykh stands)

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, `Azeez Allah!

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Kareem Allah!

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

Rabbee zid habeebika `izzan wa sharafan nooran masrooran wa ridhwaana wa sultaana. Allahuma thabitna `ala al-Haqq! Allah, Allah. (Mawlana Shaykh sits)

Dastoor yaa RijaalAllah. Thumma ‘s-salaam `ala saa'iri 'l-anbiya wa 'l-awliya, rijaalAllahi as-saaliheen amidoona bi madadikum. O holy ones! Send us from your holy powers, that we may be victorious against evil and devils. If there is no support from heavenly ones, no one can save themselves from falling into dirty Evil Oceans. If we are not asking from the holy ones' power and support, then we won't be able to fight against Shaytan and shaytanic soldiers, shaytanic arms, and Shaytan's attack. We must ask! We are such people that only have a gun without bullets; we have guns but are ordered, "You must ask for bullets and shells." If we have artillery but no shells, what are we going to do? We have also been granted weapons and artillery from the material world, and now we may have gigantic planes, but if they are not carrying bombs, we can't do anything. Therefore, we must ask holy ones for bullets, bombs, and shells so we may fight against devils and their armies.

This is an important point. The first and most powerful shell that we must use is to say, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani 'r-rajeem. (Mawlana Shaykh stands) This means we are asking, "O our Lord! We are asking to fight against devils. Grant us from heavenly shells so that we can fight against devils and evil! (Mawlana Shaykh sits) Right now, the whole world is full with with devils, and we are saying, (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem; then we are ready to fight devils! ( Mawlana Shaykh sits) Daily they are trying to give us some new shells or bullets or bombs, but we are saying, "It doesn't matter; yesterday we had, but today none." Everyday there devils attack Mankind and they will never give Mankind a chance to do his best servanthood! They are always fighting and attacking people so that they can't do good or defend themselves against evil.

Now, the whole world is surrounded with evil. You can't find any footstep where there is no evil. Everywhere you will find a trap put by shaytanic armies. That is the main reason the Lord of Heavens sends us His chosen, prepared ones from His Divinely Presence: to help us fight devils and evil. If you are not taking care, you will never be happy here or Hereafter, and you will never reach satisfaction or contentment if you are not taking care against evil and devils. Intasharr is now spreading fully everywhere, the power of sharr, evil. Evil power is now spread from the east to the west, from the north to the south.

O our Attenders! As-salaamu `alaykum. Listen a little bit. Now I am addressing Salafi `ulamas once again, because they must understand from holy books the holy words of the Seal of Prophets (s) in order to make clear our position now. We are saying that evil and devils qad intasharr, have spread throughout the whole world. It is not my claim. I am asking Salafi `ulamas, which holy verse is a witness of what we are saying? Say! Asta'eedhu billah. (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Allah Almighty says:

ظَهَرَ الْفَسَادُ فِي الْبَرِّ وَالْبَحْرِ بِمَا كَسَبَتْ أَيْدِي النَّاسِ

Dhahar al-fasaadu fi 'l-barri wa 'l-bahr bimaa kasabat aydee 'n-naas.

Corruption has appeared in the land and sea, by what the hands of people have earned. (30:41)

That is a heavenly support we are going on now! (Mawlana Shaykh sits) Why you are not saying this? That is an explanation, a commentary of those holy words. And they are making me say that evil and devils have spread from the east to the west, from the north to the south, and our proof is that ayatul-kareemah. Fasaad is "corruption", but really fasaad means "Shaytan and shaytanic powers, devils and evil" that has spread everywhere, such that you can't find a saleem place where you might keep yourself from evil and devils touching you! Devils are making sure that evil has spread everywhere now, throughout oceans and continents.

O `ulamas! Why are you not making clear that this crisis is touching people, making them unhappy? Although in their mindly production they have everything, Shaytan is saying to all people, "We are bringing you so many things that will make your life a sweet, high-level life!" People do not understand, they are spreading that evil with their own hands to reach everywhere! Now Mankind is occupied with spreading that sharr, evil, everywhere; they think it is not evil, but a benefit for Mankind! That is one-hundred percent the wrong idea, but people are running after it, thinking technology is the best means to make Mankind's life on Earth happy, when really it is against their happiness. Technology represents evil. If there was no technology, people would be living humble, sweet lives with nature, and they were happy then. But now technology is the biggest source of Mankind falling into endless trouble, corruption, and evil.

O Salafi `ulamas! Allah Almighty says, fa dhakkir, "So remind!" Why you are not reminding people that technology is the worst thing damaging humanity and giving them the most dangerous, endless troubles and problems, and that devils are bringing it? And now people are astonished, saying, "We will never be able to change our lives. We thought technology would give us something to make us happier and that our lives would be more tasteful, and that our lives would be so easy with technology." Technology's appearance from the outside is one thing, but its real position is evil. Evil. What are you saying, O Salafi `ulamas? Why are you not making a commentary on holy verses? That holy verse just makes clear the troubles people are falling into, thinking that it is a pure water, but it is going to be pure acid, and when they are falling into Acid Oceans, what will they do? How can they save themselves? No one can!

O People! Materialism is making an infinite field for Mankind, saying, "Come on this wide field! Use what we are giving you and you will be happy here and Hereafter!" They are liars and agents of devils. People are finally becoming devils, spreading evil from the east to the west. You may start with houses, then you may reach to entire villages, towns, cities, countries, and continents. You may reach but you are finding so much more trouble, and you may fall into evil that you never fell into before. And our `ulamas are sleeping! They are saying, “That it is bida`.” What is bida`? "To make a headstone on a graveyard is bida`! To come and say salaatu salaam to the Holy Prophet (s) is bida`!” Leave that, come and speak on devils and evil. Say to them, “O People! Wake up! If you know the true way that you are running on, come to a safe way, because now you are running on a dangerous way, after devils! You will fall into Evil Oceans. Come and follow in the Prophet's footsteps!”

And people now are stepping in the footsteps of western countries, which have fallen into Evil Oceans. And they have lost control of themselves and have given up their control to devils! Devils are carrying Mankind now, like this or like that, and all nations are astonished. Allah Almighty granted Mankind everything pure and good, but they are never going to be happy or satisfied with what they have been granted. So now they are asking for more and more evil, and for more devils to be against people! Particularly, they are attacking those who claim, "We are warning people!" But what are we warning you about? Your lives! The Muslim world’s lives are now only an imitation of western countries.

O Salafi `ulamas! How are you saying that you are trying to save the Muslim community from falling into Evil Oceans as slaves of devils? Why are you not making it clear? Say to mulook, say to umaara’, say to presidents, and say to fashion makers that they should leave the fashions of devils and come back to our Muslim fashions. The Lord of Heavens is going to be happy with our uniform!

O `ulamas! Try to bring back the Islamic uniform and leave the devil's uniforms. Come and bring Muslims’ characteristics and Muslims’ adabs and leave shaytanic forms, shaytanic models and their representatives. Leave them! Come and follow Islamic fashions, Islamic models, and Islamic beauty. Bring it! Tell people to come back to the real appearance of the Muslim world; then Allah Almighty will help you and support you, as He is saying, "If you keep Me, I am keeping you. احفظ الله يحفظك , Ahfazhallah yahfazhak, "Be mindful of Allah, Allah will protect you." That is one of Prophet's famous ahadeeth.

O Salafi `ulamas! I never heard this hadeeth ash-shareef from you, that he gave as his wasiya, advice, to `AbdAllah Ibn Abbas (r) when he was making ready behind his ride, saying, "U`allimuka ya ghulam, O my son, I shall teach you something that gives you benefit here and Hereafter? Ahfazhallah yahfazhak! Be mindful of Allah, Allah will protect you."

Is there anything else? Why are you not saying this to people at any time? I am not hearing. Naseeha, this is advice the Seal of Prophets (s) gave to a young one from his tribe, and with it he was addressing all nations of Mankind. "O People! If you are asking to be protected here and Hereafter, keep your Lord’s holy respect and you will be a respected one. Keep His Holy Orders at the highest level, then the Lord of Heavens will take you to the highest levels of Mankind, here and Hereafter."

O People! Leave that democracy or parliament; it is such foolishness! It is not from Allah Almighty, but from devils and Evil Oceans! Leave them, and keep the holy orders of Allah Almighty so that He is protecting you and saving you here and Hereafter. May Allah forgive us.
