They allow their mureeds to act in a certain way that makes the mureeds happy; they don’t want to see their mureeds upset. That’s why, yatanazzaloon, they descend through these different levels of opportunities through which they are able to take the responsibility from their followers and give them what is good for them, and take (away) what is bad for them.

SubhaanAllah, he (Grandshaykh) said, “I am responsible, on behalf of all my followers, to carry that responsibility from them to myself, to keep them completely clean,” not like others who want to only save themselves. He said, “No Awliyaullah will enter Paradise if every mureed does not enter Paradise with them, regardless of anything (bad they’ve done).” I heard it in this (my right) ear. These are powers that are only for Manifestations of Mercy. Tajalliyaat ar-rahmaaniyya an-naazila fee hadha 'l-`asr wa an yatahammal ash-shaykh al-mureedihi mahmaa kaana adh-dhunoob.

Wa min Allahi 't-tawfeeq, bi hurmati 'l-Fatihah.


Power from what we learned about them through Qutb al-Mutasarrif. Where is Qutb al-Irshad, Qutb al-Aqtaab, Qutb al-Bilaad, Qutb al-Zamaan? These Five Qutbs wrap...they are Awliyaullah with the “bag of mercy”, and this has been the way since Grandshaykh’s time.

What is our duty? It is always to remember Grandshaykh (AbdAllah ad-Daghestani) and Mawlana Shaykh Nazim in order that we will be safe in these days, which are going to be very suffering days, but inshaa-Allah not for us. But from those who are...not just for those who sin, but also for those who pretend they are making salawaat in dunya, but who on the contrary are very heavy on others, and Allah doesn’t like that. Everyone, Allah looks at them in the same way. Inshaa-Allah Allah will write us as among the `Ibaad as-Saaliheen.

Wa min Allahi 't-tawfeeq, bi hurmati 'l-habeeb, bi hurmati 'l-Fatihah.
