Those Who Are Drunk with Dunya Lost the Heavenly Balance

Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

(Mawlana Shaykh stands)

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

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Qadeer Allah

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Subhaan Allah

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Sultaan Allah

Subhaan Sensin, salli wa sallim yaa rabbana `ala habeebik al-mustafa maa daamat as-samawaatu wa 'l-ard. Zidhu yaa Rabbee `izzan wa sharafan nooran wa surooran, rwaanan wa sultaana. Yaa rabbana yaa rabbee 'ghfir w 'arham wa Anta khayru 'r-raahimeen. Yaa Rabbee, yaa Allah! asqina 'l-ghayth wa laa taja`lnaa mina 'l-qaaniteen. Ija`lnaa yaa Rabbee ma` `ibaadika as-saaliheen, thumma as-salaamu `alaykum yaa anbiyaa Allah wa yaa awliyaaullah yaa `ibaadAllahi 's-saaliheen.

Look after your weak servants, yaa Saahib az-Zamaan, yaa RijaalAllah, Ameen. And we are saying, all of our attenders and all Salafi `ulamas, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem, and Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem! Who carries that sword of Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem, his head will be always up. Allah Almighty will never give him sorrow. Say, Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem!

O People! Every time when you are feeling something wrong with yourself, say Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem at least seven times. (Mawlana Shaykh sits) I am a weak servant, and by the holy ones' order, when I am saying Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem I feel power and joy. Whoever is saying Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem will drink from nahru 'l-asal, nahru 'l-laban, nahru 'l-haleeb, nahru 'sh-shrabb, rivers of honey, rivers of milk. Yes, yes, yaa Rabbana, yaa Rabbana. Yaa Rabbee 'ghfir w 'arham wa Anta khayru 'r-raahimeen!

O our Attenders! Welcome to you! How are you today? So many of you are filling your bags. Today only one bag? Must be two bags today, I think. You must be careful about that point. You say to me, “O our master! We are running and working so hard.” But if Allah Almighty is not giving, how are we asking to fill our bags by ourselves? You must be a drunk one; you forget that Allah Almighty, your Creator, gives or prevents and we are asking to learn.

O People! Don't read a holy book as if you are reading a newspaper. It will give you nothing if you read the Holy Qur’an like a magazine, newspaper, or a book of tales! You must read it for understanding; it is Holy Qur’an, bringing oceans, oceans, oceans, and every moment there come new, endless oceans, and in every heavenly dominion Holy Qur’an appears with yet another heavenly appearance!

O our Attenders! Beware of Shaytan, making you to be greedy. What the Lord gives you must give for your Lord’s honor, and that gives you honor. If you are granted something from heavenly treasures, give, and Allah will give you much more. You ask, “O Shaykh! You are saying ‘heavenly treasures’ and we do not understand that; we only understand treasures on Earth." That is because you are not trying to learn about Heavens, but only for business, business, business. You may make heaps of gold or diamonds or pearls, but you can only look at them; they can't really give you anything! This is earthly treasure, but heavenly treasures are in heavenly dominions that contain countless oceans of treasures! That happiness is never granted to those who run after this world’s useless treasures. When your treasures are useful, you are making a way from here to Heavens, then you will reach heavenly treasures!

(Mawlana addresses an Egyptian.) You are from the country of Pharaoh, where they collected heaps of gold. If a command is issued, it is because there are some selected or chosen ones. Twenty chosen ones look after khazaa'in al-ard, treasures of the Earth. Jinns are also under their command, who they can order, "Collect all the gold from the time of Pharaoh," and it will be like a thousand of your pyramids! (Mawlana Shaykh laughs) I am laughing. For what? If a weak one orders to carry all the gold and all the treasures of the Saudi people and the Arabian peninsula’s kings and imams and put them there, it will be like a big pyramid. And in the morning they will ask, “Where is our gold?” (Mawlana Shaykh claps his hands) Allahumma arham! They will run to mental houses, where one weak guardian may carry them, making this gold under one pyramid. But their holders will lose their minds and become crazy ones, running like this and like that. They may collect all of them that are so proud with their treasures, bringing them under a tent, and they will say, “What happened? What happened? What happened?” I am saying, "Play now, as they took all of that from you and now you have no responsibility on Day of Resurrection, so be happy!"

I am playing; I am happy with my Lord, and happy with all anbiya and Sultan al-Anbiya (s), and with all holy ones. But now we are living in a time when people are not happy with holy ones; they don't like them because holy ones are not happy with their treasures. They say, “No-mind ones are not collecting as we are, and there is going to be for it a guardian.”

O People! Use your minds!

O Salafi `ulamas! Why are you not awakening your kings and princes, and scholars? Wake them up because they are sleeping and more, they are drunk! And the worst drunk is drunk with dunya. What they are drinking--whiskey, champagne, vodka, spirits--is nothing. But people now in our days are drunk with dunya. That is the biggest curse on people! They are sleeping with and waking up with dunya. What is that? Why be drunk with dunya? Those people who are making heaps of gold or pearls or diamonds are really sakraan, drunk ones. Now men and women are asking for a treasure. Is it not true?

O Salafi `ulamas! Where are you (what is your position)? Is it true or not? They are making me address you on Haqq. They are making me speak about reality and truth, because people are drunk with dunya. Why dunya and nothing else? But dunya is such a magic one that never says to one individual only, "I am for you," but it says to everyone, "I am for you, I am for you! I love you, I love you, I love you!" Kadhib `alaa kadhib, "lies on lies." And people, from early morning up to evening and late night, are thinking, "O, such a beautiful one!" They even dream and imagine about that beautiful dunya and its treasures. They sleep and awaken with dunya! That is the lifestyle or life philosophy for 21st century people. They are not saying, "We can do more and more for the benefit of Mankind, and for the honor of the Seal of Prophets (s), and for the honor of the Lord of Heavens, Allah Almighty, (Mawlana Shaykh stands) that He granted us and we may grant for Him!" (Mawlana Shaykh sits) But people are now understanding everything wrongly, and wrong works are never giving pleasure to people. Always they are under the heavy pressure of dunya and sometimes people kill themselves because of that; they can't carry it and their minds are exploding.

What shall we do now? Say, Salafi `ulamas! Do you know Holy Qu'ran? Part of a holy verse they are giving to me to say to you, particularly for Salafi `ulamas, Allah Almighty is saying: (Mawlana Shaykh stands)

وَوَضَعَ الْمِيزَانَ

Wa wada`a l-meezaan.

And He has set up the Balance. (ar-Rahman, 55:7)

Do you know it or not? Is it the Turkish language or English, or is it the original from Holy Qur'an?

Wa anzala 'l-meezan.

And He brought down a Heavenly Scale.

(Mawlana Shaykh sits) Yes, He put a Heavenly Scale, a Heavenly Balance. Allah Almighty is saying, "I have put a Balance in front of you in this life. For what? I am not using balance; it is for you, to arrange your lifestyle." And you lost it, 21st century people, as you are not taking care for the Heavenly Scale, the Balance!

O Salafi `ulamas! Why are you not teaching people? Teach people instead of quarreling with people, saying, "You are wrong, you are right, you are Muslim, you are mushrik, you are haraam maker, you are sahib bid'a, innovator." Leave that and bring the balance of life that Allah (swt) is sending! Why are you not saying? Teach your mulook first, your imams, your princes, your leaders, first of all teach them what is the heavenly balance that Allah Almighty is putting. And you are Arabs, saying, "We are understanding." If you understand, what does it mean, wa wada'a l-meezaan, wa anzala 'l-meezaan? For what? Allah (swt) will ask you. You are only claiming, "We are Salafi `ulamas." Your real Salafi `ulamas were using that Scale, that Balance. What is that Scale of Balance that the Lord of Heavens sent you, O Mankind? Firstly, to the Arabs, that they used it at the beginning of Islam and then they began to lose it, and then were changing it with some other balances.

Why are you using democracy? Does it have a balance? Everywhere, they are saying, "Democracy, democracy." What is that? Why aren't you calling people and saying, "If you are not enough, where are Azhar ash-Shareef `ulamas? Why are they not putting that balance that Allah Almighty (swt) put? Azhar ash-Shareef `ulamas, why are you not saying and showing? You are living in Egypt. Is Egypt putting an Islamic balance? Is Libya putting an Islamic balance? Heavenly balance in Turkey or Iran or Afghanistan or Pakistan? Where is the heavenly balance that Allah Almighty sent to you? Show me!

Don't swear at me! Shaytan swears at you. Bring that meezaan, that balance Allah (swt) put for Muslims and for believers. If you are not doing this you are always going to be humiliated. There is no honor for you; you lost your honor! That is the world's biggest crisis, because learned people are not putting this into action, particularly the Muslim world's `ulamas, who are not putting heavenly balance in Islamic countries. Where are you, `ulamas of Azhar ash-Shareef, who are so proud to have written in front of their names "Doctor Fulaan (so-and-so)." What is that? (Mawlana Shaykh laughs) Say, Salafi `ulamas! You shout at Azhar ash-Shareef `ulamas, Azhar ash-Shareef `ulamas may shout at some Shaam `ulamas and Shaam `ulamas shout at Baghdad `ulamas, "Who is ordering? Is Allah (swt) ordering to kill each other?" Allah Almighty is saying: asta`eedhu billah (Mawlana Shaykh stands)

وَلاَ تَقْتُلُواْ أَنفُسَكُمْ

Wa laa taqtuluu anfusakum.

And do not kill each other. (an-Nisa, 4:29)

(Mawlana Shaykh sits) Why do you kill each other? Is that a heavenly balance ordered for you to keep? May Allah (swt) forgive us.

O our Attenders! Try to understand the mission of Islam, for what Islam was sent and for what the Seal of Prophets (s) was ordered with Shari`atullah. He brought heavenly orders and put them in action! If we do that, all dunya will be like Paradise! If not, this dunya is going to be like hells, everywhere fire, killing, and every curse. May Allah (swt) forgive us. Tawbah, yaa Rabbee!


(38 minutes) Ameen. Yaa Rabbee, shukr yaa Rabbee.

(Mawlana Shaykh prays two raka'at Salaat ash-Shukr.)
