Harsh Warning to Salafis and Tyrants

Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

31 March 2011 Lefke Cyprus

(Mawlana Shaykh stands) Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar laa ilaaha il-Llah Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa li-Llahi ‘l-hamd. Allahu Akbar ala man takabara wa tajabbar, Allah is Greatest upon who became arrogant and mighty, upon them is the anger from Heavens. May Allah take them away. Alfu salaat wa alfu salam alayka yaa Sayyidi 'l-Awwaleen wa ’l-akhireen Rasoolullah Rasoolu ‘l-Haqq Sayyidi 'l-Awwaleen wa ’l-akhireen Sayyidina Muhammad (s). (Mawlana Shaykh sits)

Inshaa-Allah we will talk in the language of the people of Heavens, the Arabic language. (Mawlana Shaykh sings) `arabiya, `arabiya, `arabiyaa yaa Rabbana teach us yaa Sayyidi 'l-Awwaleen wa ’l-akhireen the Arabic language. I know very little Arabic but …it has been arranged like a story that a weak servant so that he may not be burdened. May Allah forgive me and the ummah of His Beloved (s).

We are saying a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani ‘r-rajeem, bismillahi ‘r-Rahmaani ‘r-Raheem so that there would be a protection for the gathering, we are saying a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani ‘r-rajeem.

Shaytan has been created from fire and wherever he had obeyed his Lord jalla wa `alaa his worshipping was refused. He got angry at the Children of Adam and this was because of his jealousy. hasood li-Llahi laa yasood… Shaytan doesn’t have a right and those who followed him in jealousy.

And we say Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmaani ‘r-Raheem, no doubt about it. It is an order from the Lord of honor and glory:

فَاذْكُرُونِي أَذْكُرْكُمْ وَاشْكُرُواْ لِي وَلاَ تَكْفُرُونِ

fadhkuroonee adh-kurkum wash-kuroo lee wa laa takfuroon,

So remember Me, I shall remember you. And always be thankful to Me and never be ungrateful to Me. (al-Baqara, 2:152)

That’s why we say Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmaani ‘r-Raheem so that we get support from support of Allah (swt).

O People! Especially the Arab, what is your way? Are you followers of `Isa (a) or Musa (a) or Ibrahim (a)? We have been ordered to be from the followers of Ibrahim, milata Ibrahim, alhamdulillah. Those people are accepted who follow him, Father of all the Prophets, upon them be peace. Our drink is Ibrahimi, no doubt about that. Sayyidina Ibrahim was haneefan wa Musliman; what is haneef? The Arabs know better from all the people what it means, haneefan wa musliman, hunaafa li-Llah. They are the people who have submitted in honor of Allah’s (swt) orders. He left his will and followed his Lord’s Will till he became haneefa, where he was ordered to slaughter his son, Sayyidina Ismail (a), and he obeyed without any hesitation.

O Arab scholars! What do you say? What will you do if you are ordered to slaughter your sons? What will be your reaction? You were acting as if you are following Allah’s orders without hesitation and you start asking questions. Not even one of you follows this order without hesitation, without any questions and answers. An Order of Allah is His Command! No discussions or explanations or hesitation for the orders of Allah jalla wa `alaa and you are Arabs (who know this)!

After Rasoolullah (s) there have appeared 70 groups. With which group was from Rasool (s)? He was with Ahlu ’l-Sunnah wa ’l-Jama`ah, those who have submitted their souls, their lives and everything which belongs to them for the sake of the order of Haqq jalla wa `alaa to make everything for them as He likes.

O Arabs! This is our madhhab, way. Have you seen in the Hadeeth an-Nabawiyyatu ’sh-Shareefa which were the words of Sayyidi 'l-Awwaleen wa ’l-akhireen (s)? Did he mention that there will come a group named “wahaabiyyeen,” so you should follow them? Or did you find any signs among the sayings of the Holy Prophet (s) that he points at those salafiyeen and says, “O Muslims! If there appears a group of salafiyyeen, follow them and you will be saved here and Hereafter.” From where are they coming and directing to come towards wahaabbiya?

O Ignorants from salafiyeen! Where is your proof? Inviting people to call themselves as “salafiyeen.” Allah (swt) says, “Hatoo burhanakum.” Give us your proof so that we may follow you. Only the ignorant and cheaters follow you and those lacking minds and religion. Give us your proof! Show us that your names are mentioned in the sayings of the Holy Prophet (s), “There will come a group of people called Salafi, so follow them.” Give us your proof! You are the lowest of people who don’t have minds and no ears, also.

“Salafi” is a cheated word, maghshush. What is your class from the salaf? Your class includes the whole of ummah, from the time Adam (s) up til now. Your madhhab or your understanding or your preaching should have also been after Adam (a), Nuh (a) or Ibrahim (a). There should have been salafiyeen with them and it would have been obligatory for all the prophets to point at them and say, “Successful are those who followed the salafiyeen.” Every prophet should have pointed to those people, praised them and mentioned good tidings for those who follow Salafis.

Has this matter ever been related to us? Did Prophet (s) clarify and say, “O ummatee, good tidings for those who support the Salafis who will come after me to organize your affairs and complete that which I had left incomplete.”… Spit on those Salafis! … The Prophet (s) came!

الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الإِسْلاَمَ دِينًا

Al-yawma akmaltu lakum deenukum wa atmamtu `alaykum n`imatee wa radeetu lakum al-islaama deena.

This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My favor upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion. (al-Maida, 5:3)

No need for any new jurisdiction and new names without meaning. You say, “We are Salafis;” how is that? How can you say “Salafis” when Allah (swt) said, “Today I have perfected for you your religion and approved Islam for you as a religion.” Why do you not say, “We are Muslims.” Why do you say “Salafis;” is the name “Salafi” more honorable than the name “Muslim”?

O People of Egypt! What is left with you? No understanding, no mind, no law, no religion, no faith, no love? How can you leave such a disrespectful fragment of people to insult the Shari`ah of Allah and cross the limits and say that they will change all jurisdiction according to their understanding?

O Believers! Kick them out! Allah (swt) said, “Today I have perfected for you your religion.”

They are saying that the religion of Islam has not been completed, “we want to complete it. O Muslims, O Muslims come with us to demolish the graves of people.” And we are telling ourselves that we have reached the heights of faith and Islam (they are thinking).

“Today I have perfected for you your religion.” Allah does not wait for Shari`ah. Allah’s Shari`ah does not accept excess or less. “Today I have perfected for you your religion.”

You [Salafis] have neither law, nor faith nor honor that you can call people: “come and be Salafis!” Allah is calling His servants to Islam and you are calling people to be Salafis! Musliman haneefan or haneefan musliman; upright Muslim. It is not mentioned in the Quran: “Be Salafi Muslim”, but mentions haneefan Musliman; upright Muslim. No understanding is left with the people of Egypt; cultured, educated `ulama, intellectuals. People with minds and understanding are also gone, people of honor as well.

For what should you leave such a disrespected fragment of people who associate everything upon Ahlu'l-Sunnah, that you are following wrong ways. Then, “Follow us. Follow us” [they are saying]. So, “if we follow you what should we do?” “You should take an axe. Come! This is our job. We have been created in order to destroy shrines, maqamat. This is our job. We have nothing else to do.” No! You are employed, you devils from Mankind and jinns. It is suitable for you to be employed in the bathroom. You are suitable only for this matter and not for destroying grave signs. No. You should go and apply at the new Egyptian government municipality to be employed as a porter for the WC center. “Give us a certificate from your side.”

This is what is suitable for you. Nobody will give you anything except this license. It is not adab to ask Al-Azhar ash-Shareef to give you a license to destroy the graves of people and the grave signs. Go take a license from Al-Azhar ash-Shareef who represents Islam in Egypt. It is not up to you to destroy grave signs. No! You should go to the municipality to ask for permission to clean public restrooms. This is what is suitable for you. It is not suitable for you to go, without a license, and destroy the graves of Muslims. This is not the protocol, adab of Islam. You have no adab, no mind, no awareness, no taste, no nurturing! You have no adab or faith. Dirtiness will fall upon you from heaven as a punishment until your hands tremble and you will be running from one doctor to the other. Your arms and legs will tremble and you will not find a cure.

I am warning you ignorant, cunning traitors. I am warning you! Do not repeat that because until forty days your arms and legs will tremble and you will find no cure! Do not think that those people are like the dead of the Christians or Zoroastrians, but they are the dead of the Muslims. Shrines of Muslims! Present them with care and keep adab with Muslim graves. As it has been mentioned in the holy hadith, “O People! Do not tread on graves, because when you tread on graves you hurt the owner of the grave, as if a man is stepping on the belly of a pregnant woman.”

That is how we should protect the graves of Muslims from people treading on them. A Muslim is respected while alive and while dead. Shari`ah never gives a license to tread on graves, as per the Prophetic hadith. Therefore if you have to walk between graves say:

سبوح قدوس ربنا و رب الملائكة و الروح، سبوح قدوس ربنا و رب الملائكة و الروح، سبوح قدوس ربنا و رب الملائكة و الروح

Subboohun quddoos, rabbuna wa rabbu ’l-malaa’ikati wa ‘r-ruh. Subboohun quddoos, rabbuna wa rabbu ’l-malaa’ikati wa ‘r-ruh. Subboohun quddoos, rabbuna wa rabbu ’l-malaa’ikati wa ‘r-ruh

Where are the `ulama of Sham to teach those people how to visit the graves of Muslims? You should say, Subboohun quddoos, rabbuna wa rabbu ’l-malaa’ikati wa ‘r-ruh. Then the inhabitants of the grave will say, “O servants of Allah! Come and walk on our graves because mercy will fall upon us.” SubhaanAllah.

We are now in the second jahiliyya. The first jahiliyya was in the time of Prophet (s).

Allahumma salli `alaa Sayyidina wa Mawlana Muhammad! Today we are in the second period of ignorance. People do not know what they are doing. Islam is all full of protocol, adab. يعلم الناس الأدب. Islam teaches people adab. Yu`allim an-naas al-adab. Where did those monsters come from like Genghis Khan police and Marxist police? How do they give people the opportunity? The head of Al-Azhar ash-Shareef. Why aren’t they stopping them? Why aren’t they threatening them? ‘

O People! keep your limits. Those who cross their limits should be punished from Heaven to Earth.

Today, this is what appeared to me to say, and I was ordered to relate to you from our honorable masters from a word by Prophet (s): “Give small bites.”

صَغَّرُوا اللقم وَأَكْثَرُوا عَدَدَهُ يُبَارَكْ لَكُمْ فِيهِ

saghghiroo’l-llaqam wa’kthiroo `adadahu yubaarik lakum feehi

Make the pieces (of meat) small and increase their number, and Allah will bless you in them.

Do not give a man a big bite. Give small bites. If we sit and talk until next week, we will not finish, but put small bites in front of Muslim authorities so they should not give a chance to those devils. Teach them a lesson. Kick those devils out! Those are our dead, the Muslim dead. They are destroying their graves. They are a disrespectful fragment of people. Follow the majority. Where are the majority of Muslims in Egypt? They smoke opium or hashish? Until they all became drunk they do not know their right from their left. Shame on them!

Astaghfirullah. Tubna wa raji’ina ila Allah.
