Yaa Qahhar! Yaa Qahhar! Yaa Qahhar! Yaa Qahhar! Yaa Qahhar!

Yaa Allah! Yaa Qahhar! Yaa Allah! Yaa Jabbar! Yaa Allah!

`alayka bi zhaalimeen fa quti`a daabiru’l-qawmu ’Lladheena zhalamoo wa ’l-hamdulillahi Rabbi ‘l-`Alameen. al-Fatihah.

(Mawlana Shaykh stands) Laa hawla wa la quwatta illa billahi 'l-`Aliyyu 'l-`Azheem. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, laa ilaaha illa-Llah. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, wa lillahi 'l-hamd! Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, laa ilaaha illa-Llah. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, wa lillahi 'l-hamd! wa sallallahu wa sallim `ala Sayyidi ’l-Awwaleena wa ’l-akhireen habeeb ‘l ..

Thumma salaat was-salaam `ala Sayyidina … anbiyaa wal mursaleen saaheebu `’l-imdaad `alayka bi jababiru qawm hususun fi sham shareef. Ameen.

(Mawlana Shaykh sits) Yawmun jadeed, rizqun jadeed. Yaa Rabbee! A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem.

Idha waqa`tum fee amrin `azheem fa qul hasbunallahu wa ni`m al-wakeel.

If you have fallen into difficult events, then recite: hasbunallahu wa ni'm al-wakeel.

(Hadeeth ash-Shareef)

O People! Our attenders from east to west! Hear, listen, and be obedient servants because heavenly blessings come on obedient ones, and cursing comes on those who are disobedient! Whether people see or not, something will reach them and they will fall down dead. Madad, yaa Sultan al-Awliyaa. Now in our time people on this planet are all disobedient. A curse is running after them and it is a most terrible time for Mankind as divine revenge is approaching.

We are running, and you must run to Allah to save yourself! If you are not running to Him, no one can protect you, save you, or keep you safe! Safety is only from Heavens. On Earth is the beginning of a new era; we reached the end of one and in Muharram 1432 we stepped into a new area after fourteen centuries of Islam. Now we are in a most terrible area. You may think of the Divine Revenge as an X-ray that covers people, because they never think about their Lord's holy commands, and now divine revenge is beginning to reach them! Therefore, they are making me warn you; a warning through a weakest servant, that throughout east and west you are on a field filled with landmines. You don't know where you are putting your feet and boom! boom! boom!

لاَ عَاصِمَ الْيَوْمَ مِنْ أَمْرِ اللّهِ

Laa `asim al-yawm min amrillah,

This day nothing can save, from the command of Allah. (Hud, 11:43)

Therefore, now in our days no one is able to keep or to protect you. Protection is only from Allah Almighty, and divine protection never reaches people who never think of their Lord's holy commands as they are followers of Shaytan. From east to west, from north to south, people are running to follow shaytanic orders, not taking caution to uphold the holy commands of Allah Almighty! Shaytan is making people run and fall, one after another, into such a bad condition that never passes away.

People only look outward, thinking, “That is a man.” When you really look at them, their faces are like the wildest beasts. Therefore, the angels reach those whose foreheads are stamped and their faces are changing, taking them to the worst condition in this life, from bad to the worst! If a situation is bad today, tomorrow it is going to be worse. Don't think we are currently on the worst steps, no! When a person reaches the worst step, afterwards there comes a worse situation. If he does not return and insists to remain there, a worse situation befalls him, then it doubles and doubles again!

The worst crises and sufferings are increasing because people from east to west, from north to south, are followers of shaytanic orders and they left the orders of the Lord of Heavens! Come to the Divine Presence and accept Him, as you promised your Lord on the Day of Promises, the Day of Oaths. Come, and you may be saved! If not, for all of them there will be only ashes. Perhaps their ashes are going to be burned, to become only smoke and then going, going, going. Allahu Akbar!

O People! For a little bit, leave the dunya and its pleasures! Crises are increasing because people feel today they can no longer yesterday's pleasures; their money is less and less, so they protest in the streets and are displeased with their governments, saying, "We are as not happy today as yesterday, so you must give us more (rights and money)!" Their characters and egos are now like a fire that says, "Feed us more wood to burn! Hal min mazeed, is there not more?”

يَوْمَ نَقُولُ لِجَهَنَّمَ هَلِ امْتَلَأْتِ وَتَقُولُ هَلْ مِن مَّزِيدٍ

Yawma naqoolu lijahannama hali imtalati wataqoolu hal min mazeed.

On that Day We will ask Hell, “Are you filled?” and it will answer, “Is there more (for me)?” (Surat al-Qaf, 50:30)

"We are asking for more. You (our government) say there is no money, but we can’t understand this. You must give us more so we can enjoy ourselves like yesterday, and then increase our salary! What we have now we can finish in one night!" That is the the trouble, and Shaytan with its stick is making them run after their governments to fulfill their desires. Some of those desires, the halaal, permitted ones, are a grant from Allah Almighty. But the shaytanic government is saying, "No, ask for more, ask for more." People may have a heap of gold, but are saying, "Hal min mazeed, is there not more? I have a small heap, like a hill, while his is like a mountain," and so on.

The shaytanic states are causing this by saying to people, "Ask for more, ask for more." They are asking for more but haven't got anything in their hands (no result), while statesmen sit on their seats of power. The people are happy with their leaders as long as they encourage them to enjoy their egoistic desires. The top people in every country know that if people are happy they will never come against them and so they encourage people to have more. Shaytanic centers for eating, drinking, and fulfilling sexual desires are everywhere, but now people are not content with it, like a raging fire that needs to consume more fuel, saying, "Hal min mazeed, Is there no more for me? I am hungry; give me more!" As much as you give, you are never going to satisfy their egos!

Now people say, "We are going to do this or that, and are giving you this ultimatum!" That is a mistake. Wa li kulli naqul haad, for everything there is a limit. They educate and train people in shaytanic ways, and I am sorry to say that Islamic states also have left youngsters to do as they like, giving them too much freedom, but up to what point? Wa li kulli naqul haad, for everything there is a limit, but the government says, “Do everything, there is no limit for you,” allowing their youth to run away too far and fall.

The whole world is in the hands of people using heroin. They are giving it and people are running after it, then the governments arrest them. The dealers of that poison say to their governments, “If you do not give us a chance to do business, we will give you every badness and then take you down." Then the government says, “Do as you like.” That is a fire governments are unable to stop as they are forced to follow the orders (of criminals). Therefore, the whole world is now on fire, in cities and towns, and that poison has reaches villages. On one side, governments use their whips to collect offending youngsters (and all unity is lost). People are going to be like a flock, not knowing what they are doing. May Allah forgive us.

Now we are asking for a way out through governments, but you can't stop what is happening. They have to use spiritual ways to save themselves and their children. With that, even within 24 hours they would stop it. If that is not enough, (implementing spiritual ways for) forty days would finish all their problems! But they say, "No, we must have the biggest trade (profits) for ourselves.” Therefore, they fight religion because it forbids every harmful thing. (If they submitted to religious law) there problems could be finished in 24 hours, but all the states are saying, "Leave them to do as they like and leave us to sit on our seats of power." For this reason, the greatest punishment will come to them both here and Hereafter!

O People! We are in the very holy month of Rajab, so ask, “O our Lord! Keep us in a protected area.” Ask and you may have protection. If you are not asking, then the mosques and holy places are empty. All people, even in the Muslim world, are destroying dargahs. Sharafu ’l-makaan bi’l-makeen, “The honor of a place is based on who is there.” People run to Meccatu ‘l-Mukarrama because the House of Allah is there, and they run to Madinatu 'l-Munawwara because the holy body of Prophet (s) is buried there; otherwise people would not go there.

I am sorry to say that so many no-mind Salafis and Wahhabis prevent people from going to holy places, but never open their mouths about the poison affecting youngsters. Shaytanic words are destroying youngsters, causing them to never think about holiness. We must give our high respect for holy people and we must give our most high respect to holy places! Sharafu ’l-makaan biman fi ’l-makaan, “The honor of a place is based on who is there.” That is clear! The Wahhabi and Salafi people are so ignorant! What is coming from Heavens? Sharaful-makaan biman fi ’l-makaan, “The honor of a place is (measured) by the one present there.” None of them encourage people visit our holy places. Why deny this (benefit) because they are truly ignorant ones.

Madinatu 'l-Munawwara, zadaha’llahu `izzan wa sharafa. If the holy body of the Seal of Prophets (s) were not there, who would be going there? Whatever is for that one and holy ones is never going to finish, so people run to be there; their souls are attracted.

O People! Run after honored ones, even if you may find them amongst common people. You must ask, “Is there a holy, good, respected one here?” People are never respecting a cinema or nightclub, but they do respect a mosque. This is a building, as is that, but in a mosque people fear doing something with which Allah (swt) is not happy, and are never ashamed to do forbidden things in a nightclub because it has no honor. For example, people are afraid to enter a mosque and smoke, but they run to other places to do everything forbidden and think nothing of it because there is no honor for those places. If you have two rooms, one for praying and one for the bathroom, will you respect the bathroom more? Prayer brings respect.

Now people think only of pleasure and no longer consider who is holy or not. Wahhabis are fighting about what places Allah Almighty honored, and those are Arabs!

وَاتَّخِذُواْ مِن مَّقَامِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ مُصَلًّى

Wa attakhidhoo min maqaami Ibraaheema musallan.

and take the Station of Abraham as a place of prayer (Surat al-Baqarah, 2:125)

But there is no tafseer for no-mind Wahhabi and Salafis. “Look at Maqaam al-Ibraheem!” That means Allah Almighty gave honor not for that piece of land, but because Sayyidina Ibraheem (a) was there!

هُنَالِكَ دَعَا زَكَرِيَّا رَبَّهُ قَالَ رَبِّ هَبْ لِي مِن لَّدُنْكَ ذُرِّيَّةً طَيِّبَةً إِنَّكَ سَمِيعُ الدُّعَاء

Hunaalika da`a zakariyya rabbahu qaala rabbee hablee milladunka thurriyyatan tayyibatan innaka samee`u al-ddu`a.

There did Zakariyya pray to his Lord, saying, "O my Lord! Grant me from You a progeny that is pure, for You are He that hears prayer!” (Surat al-Imraan, 3:38)

Zakariyya visited Sayyidatina Maryam (a) due to the honor Allah Almighty granted her from karamat, miracles. That is why Allah (swt) said, hunaalika da`a zakariyya rabbahu. That means that place is honored for the miracles of Maryam (a), and because of that Zakariyya (a) did not pray elsewhere, but he prayed there, "O my Lord! Give me one child." That means the Holy Vision and mercy, fee hadhihi al-munaasaba, come to that suitable place for the honor of Maryam (a), and so Zakariyya prayed there.

O Wahhabi People! Why do you prevent people from going to a place made holy by who was there? You destroy holy places, when even Jewish people and Christians are not destroying them! From where are Wahhabia and Salafia coming to destroy these maqaams? Allahuma `alayka bihim!

My Arabic and English are weak, but you must understand, as He Almighty makes you to understand, alhamdulillah.

O People! Keep the ways of awliya and anbiya, and keep love for them in your hearts; keep their advice and their steps and you will be happy here and Hereafter. alhamdulillah wa kafa raheemullah man da`. Thank Allah, and it is sufficient. May Allah grant mercy to those who call on Allah! Subhaana rabbeeka rabbee ‘l-izzati ama yaasifoon, Surat al-Fatihah. (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits)
