Suhbah after Jumu`ah Khutbah

As-salamu `alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh! It is a heavenly order that we must say, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem. Shaytan is the most dangerous enemy for Mankind. All the wrong ways that people are running to are tricks of Shaytan, so don't forget to say, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem.

Shaytan is most the terrible enemy for Mankind. "O our Lord, how we can defend ourselves?" servants may ask. Before asking, He Almighty is saying, "O My most beloved one, say to them to take My heavenly sword against that Shaytan." What is that? Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem! Yes. There is a most dangerous, terrible enemy; if we are using all nuclear bombs it will never harm Shaytan, no. Because Shaytan is fire and coming on him also fire. He is saying, "Doesn't matter." Really from Mankind, he is worst teacher that is teaching every badness, every evil and criminal, Shaytan is teaching. No material weapons are affecting on him, or harming him, no, no.

Therefore, we have another weapon that is heavenly! We have been granted from our Lord Almighty Allah the sword of bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem! Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar! `Azhamat ar-Rabb, the greatness, glory, and majesty of Allah Almighty is bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem! SubhaanAllah! What is in it no one knows! Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem. First Allah Almighty created al-Lawh al-Mahfoozh, the Preserved Tablet, then He created al-Qalam (Pen of Allah) that heavenly pencil and ordering, "O Pen, write on the Preserved Tablet!” and from Allah Almighty's addressing, haybat, glory of Allah, the qalam split and ink was flowing, and it was ready to write.

The holy Pen asked, "O my Lord, what am I going to write?"

"Write, Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem!"

Qalamullah began to write and its bigness even you can't imagine! It wrote, bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem. For how long did Qalamullah, which belongs to heavens, write? Seven-hundred years! Nineteen letters, yes? Seven-hundred years everything in it, subhaanAllah wa `aadham al-Mulk, no one knows His Territory's greatness, no one knows! No one knows beginning, no one knows ending! He is Allah Almighty! (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) Subhaan sensin yaa Allah, subhaan sensin yaa Allah. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

Therefore, we have been ordered, "O My most beloved, most honored one in My Divine Presence, yaa Habeebi, yaa Muhammad! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.) I am giving to you and your nation for defending themselves to try to say even once, bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem!”

But Shaytan is saying, “Don't say,” because anytime anyone says, bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem, one spear is going in Shaytan's chest or from behind or cutting its head down! Therefore, he is very angry and very anxious for it not to be said by anyone, bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem. Say, bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem, and you will be in safety!!

O our Salafi `ulamas! Marhaban, marhaban, marhaban! Are you teaching such things to the ummah or you are going like materialistic people, not accepting spirituality and tasawwuf? They are not accepting tariqahs or working on our spirituality to make it easier to understand. But now your "doctors" are saying, bida`, bida`, bida`! We are saying something from Holy Qur'an. Don't say, “You are making it too big.” There is no scale for showing the greatness of Qalamullah. Say! Why are you not saying to people? People are thirsty for spirituality because people are just fed up from technologia! Technologia is making people like machines! No sensibilty, never! People, all of them, are going to be materialist. All materialist people going to Jahannum, Hellfire.

Always our Jumu`ah imaams coming on minbar saying, “This group is good, that group is not good.” They are only speaking about materiality, not spirituality. Prophet (s) came to teach us materiality? No. Prophet (s) showed to all nations that without technologia people can live peacefully!!! Now biggest balaa`, cursing coming on people is from technologia. Therefore, when Mahdi (a) comes, first he is going to destroy all materialist things, all technologia! Allahu akbar!!! To destroy he is only saying, Allahu akbar! Nothing is going to remain from technologia; it will be removed.

O People! Come to spirituality! If not coming, you are going to be like material matters, and you will be underground, only dust! O our Lord! Give us, and grant us something from heavenly understanding!

And coming an answer now, "O My weak servant, you are asking to be given to all people a heavenly understanding, but all people are not even looking up. If they are not asking, for what am I giving? Anyone asking, I am giving, but they are not asking! They are asking everything from Shaytan and shaytanic representatives. All trouble here and all hells in the Hereafter are behind Shaytan!”

Why? Why are you refusing holy inabiyal hikmah, springs of wisdom? If anyone speaks (about spirituality), people make fun of them, saying, “What are you doing?" Shaytan is always against spirituality. Therefore, anyone against spiritually is a representative of Shaytan. Therefore, wa yuhadhikumullah, Allah Almighty is warning everyone! Therefore, I am saying there is a group of learned people who are naming themselves "Salafi `ulamas," are they only thirty people, or thirty-thousand people? What about us? These Salafi `ulamas are not knowing that Shari'atullah, that Allah Almighty is Guarantor for His holy books and Holy Qur'an and everything in it? But they are not making Holy Qur'an first and Akhirah, Day of Resurrection second. Holy Qur'an puts first what is your destination, opening ways to people to reach their destination! But people are not believing in their heavenly destinations. If not believing, their levels drop to levels of animals' world. We are not animals, we are Mankind! We have a special being. Our creation is a super creation granted to Mankind!

In the Qur'an-i-Kareem, Allah Almighty is saying to angels, "I am creating new creatures." Here "creating" means their beings are really in Allah Almighty's Power Oceans and Creation Oceans that were hidden. It means Allah Almighty is asking to bring them into existence, and angels are not knowing what it is, because no one knows what is hidden in Allah Almighty's Creation Oceans! He Almighty is saying, "I am sending, creating a new Creation that will be My deputies.” There is no rank over deputies! Deputy means khalifah, or crown prince. Allah is `azaaliyoon, `abaadiyoon, from pre-Eternal to Eternal; there is no beginning and no end for Him, but He is granting such an honor for that new creation, Mankind. They were created and the Lord of Heavens said, "O My servants! I am creating you and sending you to dunya, beware! You have been created for your Lord. I created you for Me and created the world for you!"

O Salafi `ulamas! Is it not true? Are you saying such things? Are you not reading? Are you not knowing about such things? Why did Allah create Mankind, for dunya or for Himself?

O People! What are you doing? Everything you are doing is for dunya, nothing for your Lord, and Allah Almighty created you for His divinely service! Every Jumu`ah why are you not saying to the Muslim world first and then other nations, "O People! You are never created for dunya, but the Creator, the Lord of Heavens, created you for His divinely service.” What are you doing? What is that foolishness? Why are you not taking care? And you know the hadith, ad-deenu naseeha, “Religion is advice!” Where is your naseeha, advice? Every week you are saying something that is not necessary!

And the most important point is:

وَذَكِّرْ فَإِنَّ الذِّكْرَى تَنفَعُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ

wa dhakkir fa inna 'dh-dhikra tanfa`u'l-mumineen.

But teach (thy Message) for teaching benefits the Believers. (51:55)

Always insaan, Man, is forgetting, so remind them that they are not created for this world, but for their Creator, Allah Almighty! No greater honor can be imagined for a person than to be in Allah Almighty's service! We have been created for heavenly service, but we are leaving that and running to be servants for dunya, not only servants, but slaves!

O People! As-salaamu `alaykum! This is a heavenly grant for all nations from east and west, from north to south, to know about for what they have been created. First of all, it must be taught to people and their children for what they have been created and Who created them.

May Allah forgive me.

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

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Subhaan Allah

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Sultaan Allah

Sultan sensin, Sultan sensin.

Yaa Rabbee, send us a heavenly one to collect our hearts on Your love and obedience to You! We are looking for a sultan to come and defeat Shaytan and shaytanic groups from this world. O our Lord! Send us a sultan to raise the flags of Islam, heavenly flags on this planet, and to be under those flags here and to be under the holy flag on the Day of Resurrection, for the honor of Your most honored one in Your Divinely Presence, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.)

Allahumma salli wa sallim `ala Nabiyyina Muhammad `alayhi 's-salaam

(O Allah pray and send peace on our Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace)

Salaatan tadoomu wahtoohda `ilayh ma marra 'l-layaali wa toola 'd-dawaam

(praises everlasting to which all are guided, as long as the nights and as long as the days)

(Du`a) Fatihah.
