(Mawlana Shaykh stands) Laa ilaaha illa-Llah. Laa ilaha illa-Llah. Laa ilaaha illa-Llah Muhammad Rasoolullah `alayhi salaatullah wa-salaamu. Thumma salaamu `alayka yaa anbiyaa, yaa `ibaadAllah as-saaliheen wal mu`mineen jami`an. (Mawlana Shaykh sits)

Thumma salaamu `alayk, yaa Saahib az-Zamaan, was-salaamu `alaykum yaa Budalaa, yaa Nujabaa, yaa Nuqabaa, yaa Awtaad, yaa Akhyaar, min al-anbiya was-saaliheen. Salaamu `alaykum wa ala Saahib az-Zamaan. Wa `ala Qutb al-Mutasarrif wa sadaatina ‘l-kiraam. Salaamu `alaykum wa `ala 'l-mu`mineen wa 'l-mu`minaat wa 'l-muslimeen wa 'l-muslimaat. `Ayeeyoonaa bi madadikum yaa Saahib al-Imdaad!

A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. Ta`zheeman wa tamjeedan li Rabbinaa jalla wa `ala. Stand up! (Mawlana Shaykh sits)

O our Attenders! Thumma salaamu `alaykum. How are you today? Happy? You must be very happy because day-by-day we are approaching to leave this tasteless, dirty life, coming nearer to leave this lowest level of life, to move up. We are getting closer to leave this body, our physical being, and going up. We hope that the last day for you, for me, for believers will be the best day, because we hope to reach our Lord's heavenly honor. Yes. Toobah, never-ending good tidings for those who know they are servants! When they leave this life, angels descend from the Heavens and dress them with their real being, in a dress of honor. Try to be from them! If not today, tomorrow, and if not tomorrow, then next week, next month, next year we will leave our physical being here and angels will bring honored dressings for honored ones!.

Toobah! Such endless good tidings for those who will be dressed in the last moment of their lives, leaving this whole physical being here to be buried. But your real being, (...buffering...) if you have prepared yourself to be dressed in the dress of honor. Because you are leaving this dirty life and going up to our Lord's Heavenly Presence. Try for this.

O our Attenders! As-saalamu `alaykum. Try to understand.

O Salafi `ulamas! You are saying in the east and west, "We are Salafi." What is "Salafi" and what is that giving to you? Look at which dress you are going to be given in the last moment. Those titles you give yourself without any evidence are never going to give you anything. You may claim something for yourself, but you are not asking if you have been accepted in the Divinely Presence as a good servant, and that is important. Why are you quarreling with this and that? No! Look for yourselves and how you are going to be in that last moment. Ask if your name has been written, appointed, or shown on the table of good ones and honored ones. That is important, if your name is with honored ones or dishonored ones. Why are you claiming, “We are this or that.” Leave it! Think on that last moment when the Angel of Death, Azra`eel (a), will come to take your heavenly soul. Which dress has he been ordered to dress on you? Because the Angel of Death is coming with angels. For some people, angels of honor are coming, and for dishonored people angels of punishment are coming.

O Salafi `ulamas! What do you think about yourselves? Will you be dressed with honor? Islam is saying Muslims must be between two poles, khawfu and raja`, one wing to fear from the Lord's Mightiness, and the second will be hopeful of the Lord of Heaven's rahmah, mercy. That is important! Don't quarrel and accuse people of this and that; it is not for you, as the Holy Balance is in Heavens. Look for that and try to be from honored ones. People may ask you, "How can we be honored ones?" What is your answer? (Is it honorable) to be Muslims, Christians, Jewish, to be this or that? No. The question is, "How can we be from honored ones?" No answer? In every belief it is mentioned: Moses, Nuh, `Ibraheem, Adam, Sulayman, Dawud, Zakariyya, Yahya, Jesus Christ, and the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s) (Mawlana Shaykh stands) mentioned this. How did he mention this? As Allah (swt) is saying to people, asta`eedhu billah:

لَقَدْ كَانَ لَكُمْ فِي رَسُولِ اللَّهِ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَة ٌ ً

laqad kaana lakum fee rasoolullahi 'uswatun hasanah.

Indeed in the Messenger of Allah you have an excellent example. (al-Ahzab, 33:21)

(Mawlana Shaykh sits) That is the answer, if anyone is asking to be honored here and Hereafter in the Divine Presence. Then at the last moment when he is leaving this life, he must know how he is going to be an honored one. The answer is so clear when Allah Almighty is saying, laqad kaana lakum fee Rasoolullahi uswatun hasanah. Anything else? The Seal of Prophets (s) was giving the most honored symbol of an honored person because he was a symbol for all prophets, saints, and good ones from beginning up to the end.

O Salafi or Hanafi `ulamas! Make it clear for common people and for chiefs of other religions. There is no other religion; there is only one religion the Lord of Heavens is happy with! But we humans are giving so many names that give nothing to us! Therefore, every prophet brought a perfect model of good ones, and Shaytan brought the worst model of life for Mankind, to make them fall in its trap and become dishonored ones. Shaytan is never sleeping; day and night it runs after Mankind with countless trips and traps. Why are you not standing up and calling, "O People! Your honor is to follow the Seal of Prophets' heavenly model." The Lord of Heavens is sending heavenly models, or Paradise people's fashion, and how it should be, and no prophet is saying a different declaration, all of them are saying, "O People! That is an honored dressing for you, to follow your prophet's way, as all of them are following the Seal of Prophets."

Therefore, in the Night Journey when the Seal of Prophets (s) came from Meccatu 'l-Mukarrama to Jerusalem, all prophets from Adam up to him were waiting for him and welcoming him, saying, "O Seal of Prophets! Welcome to you and your nation, who are asking for the heavenly honor you bring to them. They are giving their salutes to you and we are saluting you, also!"

Truth is only one, there can't be two different ones; Haqq is only one! But Shaytan is bringing hundreds and thousands of lies to cheat people not to follow good ones. That is Shaytan's mission, to cheat people and bring dishonor on their names. And now the whole world is not thinking about the true, honored way. Every day you are looking at shaytanic broadcasting. What is happening in all countries that people are going to be like cruel and wild animals? Is it not honor for an honored one to get out from his home to shout, quarrel and swear at people, killing each other? That is not the honored way for Mankind! How can it be? That means the whole world now is following Shaytan and its ways, and Shaytan is very happy to make people quarrel and fight each other, to make problems and give miseries to people, and to bring in front of them unsolved, shaytanic projects. They think they are doing their best, but now, 21st century people from from east to west, from north to south are doing their worst. Shaytan pumps their egos and everyone is looking to their egos like a gigantic one, saying, "O People! You must follow me." As a strategy, Shaytan looks to small ones, and blows leaders into huge-sized models, so people say, "O, we must follow this one!" And you can pop that puffed-up one with one needle!

O Mankind! Come and use your minds! For what are you quarreling and fighting? Why are you not fighting your mushtarak, common enemy of all Mankind? Why are you not swearing at that one and throwing stones at it? Why are you following that one? Everywhere is fire, killing, blood, and earthquakes! That is not from heavenly mercy! No, people are bringing that on themselves!

They are saying, "Our chief, our leader."

What is the difference between you and him?

"O Shaykh! Our leaders are like donkeys with four legs, but we are two-legged ones. Therefore, we see these four-legged ones are more powerful than us. Also they have a tail, making like this, like that. Therefore, they are different."

If they are like donkeys they are going to be different because that is no-mind peoples' mentality! When they are seeing a four-legged donkey, they say, "O! We are two-legged and this is four-legged, his position must be higher than ours!" Put on yourself one donkey to look after you! Four legs, what is that? That is such a foolish mentality and people are running. "He is like you and like that one." The only ones different among Mankind are who are belonging to the Heavens: find them and follow them! Don't look at those people on Earth, some with four legs; they are not giving to you anything but only make more and more trouble on you!

O our Attenders! You must understand this, as we are not joking here, but we are saying something for understanding. Try to have good understanding, don't be like drunk ones, destroying your understanding and your mentality. Drinking has no value. Try to leave the level of animals and come to the level of humanity, so you may reach to heavenly levels! May Allah forgive us.

O Salafi `ulamas! O Azhar ash-Shareef `ulamas! O Doctors! Make it clear. What we are saying now is not coming from me, but came to my heart to address people. Make an analysis of these words, and look if there is anything wrong, then say it is wrong. But because it is from Heavens, if you say it is wrong, cursing will come through you on your people!

May Allah forgive us. Tawbah, yaa Rabbee. Tawbah, astaghfirullah.


Allahu Akbar. Dastoor, yaa Rabb. Tawbah, yaa Rabbee, tawbah, astaghfirullah.

(35 minutes) Yaa Rabbee. Yaa Rabbee, shukr.

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