We Are Commanded to Be Soft with People

Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

27 June 2010 Lefke, Cyprus

Dastoor yaa Sayyidi. Madad yaa Sultan (Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

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

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Subhaan Allah

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Sultaan Allah

Sultaansen, Sultaansen! O our Lord! Give from Your endless blessings for your most beloved one and honored one and glorified one, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! Zidhu yaa Rabbi, `izzan wa sharafa nooran wa suroora, wa ridwaanan wa sultaana. Raghman `ala ’l-anf shayaateen and his followers! Thumma’s-salaamu `alayk yaa Saahib az-Zamaan! Yaa sultan on this planet, Qutb al-Mutasarrif! Amiddoona bi madadik. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

O our Attenders! As-salaamu `alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu. Come and hear. Leave following Shaytan and shaytanic ways. Try to be our Lord's servants. That gives you benefit. Dunya will never give you benefit, no. Millions and billions of people, you are walking on their graveyards and they are crying, crying, crying but you are not hearing. If you are hearing, you can fall dead.

This is a humble association and the main point, main ghaayah, main purpose or main aim is only to remind you, to make you to ask a question: Who am I and from where I am coming? Who is bringing me from nothing to be in existence? And after awhile, my existence is going to be taken away and we are going to be taken away and we are going to be nasiyan mansiya, “forgotten, never remembered.” We are going to be forgotten, forgotten, forgotten!

Say, A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani 'r-rajeem! Give time for your Creator, for your Lord, Allah Almighty (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) Subhansen yaa Rabb! Sultansen yaa Rabb! (Mawlana Shaykh sits.) We are asking only Your pleasure. And the main aim from heavenly teachings, that is to make our Creator to be pleased with us. What do you want beyond that? Toobaa, good or best tidings for ourselves to make our Creator to be pleased with us.

What is beyond that, O foolish ones? What you are asking? You can't be pleased in this life and the Next Life if you are not making your Creator pleased with you! Never! That is a very important point, Shaykh Hisham Effendi. People are running to be pleased, yes. And what is the way for here and Hereafter also? We are asking to make our Lord pleased with us.

O Salafi `ulamas! Why you are not saying this to people? This is the most important point you must make. Don’t make too much like this, like that, but say only, "O People! If you are not making your Lord pleased with you, you can't reach a pleasure either here or after this life." And our lives are ayyaaman ma`doodaat, “A limited number of days.” In Qur’an al-Kareem, bahar, oceans, are flowing from part of this holy verse which is not only to be spoken!

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الصِّيَامُ كَمَا كُتِبَ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ.أَيَّامًا مَّعْدُودَاتٍ

Ya ayyuhalladheena aamanoo kutiba `alaykumu 's-siyaamu kamaa kutiba `ala-’l-ladheena min qablikum la`alakum tattaqoon. ayyaaman ma`doodaat.

O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you that ye may ward off (evil); (Fast) a certain number of days;(2:183,184)

Qur’an. Huuu! Oceans that are coming now in this part (of this ayah) give meaning for awakening people. Yusheer, signing to people, "O People! You are going to be here ayyaaman ma`doodaat, in counted days. For some of you it may be only one day, for others ten days, and for others one year, 365 days. Some of you will have ten times one year and others may have 40 times one year. Some of you, fifty times. Some of you 100 times of 365 days. All of them ayyaaman ma`doodaat, counted, then going to be finished.

Why you are not saying, O Salafi `ulamas and doctors of Shari`ah and `ulamas of Azhar ash-Shareef? And Allah Almighty is ordering (Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

وَذَكِّرْ فَإِنَّ الذِّكْرَى تَنفَعُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ

wa dhakkir fa inna 'dh-dhikra tanfa`u'l-mumineen.

But remind (thy Message) for reminding benefits the Believers. (51:55)

(Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

Subhaan Allah. Laa hawla wa la quwatta illa billahi 'l-`Aliyyu 'l-`Azheem.

فَذَكِّرْ إِنَّمَا أَنتَ مُذَكِّرٌ

Fa dhakkir inamaa anta mudhakkirun.

Remind, for you are not but a remembrancer. (88:21)

Sifatu ’l-Anbiyaa, at-tadhkeer. A holy command from heavens, "Remind My servants they must not think they are going to live on this planet endlessly! They must know their lives are ayyaman ma`doodaat, in counted days, and when finished they will be taken away.” Qaabid al-arwaah, “Grasper of Souls,” the Archangel of Death, is coming at any time. When it is written for your life to end, you will be finding him in front of you, saying, `atee al-amaanah, “Give your trust." Angels will bring your soul from `Alam al-Arwaah, the spiritual world and put it there.

Doctors are so keenly looking, “How is the beginning of the heart of janeen, an embryo in its mom's womb? How does its heart begin to work?” (Mawlana Shaykh makes pumping motion with hand.) They never reaching that knowledge, to know the beginning of life of Man in their mom's womb. Who is making the first action? Who is giving the first command to the heart? How is a heart obedient, and beginning to pump? Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!

Idiot people! People living now are idiots and more than idiots! They are not thinking on it. They are thinking only to make such a strange instruments. Well, look to yourself! How did your life begin in such a very tight place, in a bag full with water, and you were living there? SubhaanAllah. SubhaanAllah. SultaanAllah. (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) SubhaanAllah! Subhaanu ‘l-Khalaaqu’l `Azheem. Yaa Rabb! Yaa Rabb, forgive us (Mawlana Shaykh sits.). La hawla wa la quwatta illa billah!

And on the day you are going to be taken out, the Lord of Heavens, the Creator, sends His angels to take the new one to dunya. People thinking same angels doing, but for every new birth new angels come, and they never go to another one. SubhaanAllah! Yawmi ‘l-ladhee wulid awwal yawm. Taking that baby outside the womb, opening and beginning to breath. And it is written how many days that one will live on this planet. Allahu Akbaru ’l Akbar! Ayyaman ma`doodaat.

O Wahabi and Salafi `ulamas! Why you are not saying these important points as a tadhkir, reminding for people? What you are doing? Where are your books? O Wahabi people! Where are your books, mentioning such things; bring them to me. You are only knowing to cover your heads and shoulders, putting hatta on your heads, and some of you have bare heads. It is not Islamic. You can’t open (uncover) your head except on the Day of Arafat! Other days, you must close (cover) your head, to give t`azheeman, most respect for Allah (swt)! You must put on your heads something. From where you are bringing trousers and jackets and ties? What sunnah is that?

O Wahabi people! Your end is coming. If you are insisting, some virus will come to your bodies and kill you. If coming to you at night, by morning you will pass away.

إِنْ أَنَاْ إِلاَّ نَذِيرٌ in ‘ana illa nadheer, “I am only a warner,” (7:188) Warning you! You are going too fast on wrong way and blaming Ahlu ’s-Sunnah wa ’l-Jama`ah. Who is giving that authority to you? Say! Where are your books to make people wake up? Why you are fighting Ahlu ’s-Sunnah wa ’l-Jama`ah, who is following sunnatu ‘r-Rasool (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) Salawaatullahu wa salaamuhu `alayk, Sayyid ‘l-Awwaleen wa ‘l-Akhireen! Stand up, or you may die tomorrow! (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

I am the weakest one, and you may say, “That weak person can’t do anything.” Don’t you know one mosquito was took away Nimrod and his armies? Don’t say I am so weak; sometimes I am powerful. If my Lord is ordering, I may take all of you by morning, sending on you unseen soldiers, that you call “virus!” Keep your tongues! Keep your tongues! If you are not keeping your tongues, we may tie you from up or from downstairs. Don't rush on such a weak servant or on Ahlu’l-Sunnah people. You are on wrong ways! Those on the True Way are with true ones. Say! Who is your true one that you are following? Abdul Wahab Najdi? That is your way, your imaam? Where he is now, say to me!

O People! خُذُواْ حِذْرَكُمْ khudhoo hidhrakum, “Take your precautions” (4:71). SubhaanAllah, everything that Allah `azza wa jall is teaching, khudhoo hidhrakum. Take your most high care. Hidhr, pay more attention for yourself, because Shaytan is after you. One is behind you, pushing, and another one is in front of you, leading. And you are saying, “our leaders.” Who makes an imitation leadership, that one is going to the Fire first, and second those who follow them. They are tyrants, jabaabira! Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar `alaykum!

Those who assault Ahlu’l-Sunnah wa’l-Jama`ah, why you are not saying, “O People! Your lives are only ayyaaman ma`doodaat, numbered days; can’t be less, can’t be more. And through your lives, what you must do? Fight to each other or do something else?” Do something else. What is that? Why you are not teaching your followers, “How you are going to make your Lord, jalla jalallahu, your Creator, happy with you?” Allahu Akbar! (Mawlana Shaykh stands amd sits) Why you are not saying? Why you are not writing? Where is that book? Send it to me. Allah Almighty is ordering, SubhaanAllah, Allah jalla wa `aala:

وَلَا تُجَادِلُوا أَهْلَ الْكِتَابِ إِلَّا بِالَّتِي هِيَ أَحْسَنُ

Wa laa tujaadilu Ahlu ‘l-Kitaabi illa billatee hiya ahsan.

And do not dispute with the People of the Book except in the best manner. (29:46)

Allah jalla jalaaluhu, is ordering this to be your discussion with Ahl al-Kitaab, the people of Injeel, Tauraat, Zaboor, to be hayyin layyin, “soft and tender,” and not to be hateful.

وَلَوْ كُنتَ فَظًّا غَلِيظَ الْقَلْبِ لاَنفَضُّواْ مِنْ حَوْلِكَ

Law kunta fazhan ghaleezh al-qalbi la-anfadoo min hawlik.

If you (O Muhammad) had been harsh and hard-hearted, they would have run away from around you. (3:159)

Rasoolullah kaaan yuhaajimi ’n-naas, “Rasoolullah (s) was the most gentle one to his nation.” From where you are bringing that qabeeh, to be rough? You are such rough people, making people run away from you and your teachings which are against Holy Qur’an! Allah Almighty is ordering to His most beloved one, Sayyidina Muhammad (s): (Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

Wa laa tujaadilu Ahl al-Kitaabi illa billatee hiya ahsan. Lima `am tahjum `alayna, shoo dhanbuna (why do you accuse us, what is our sin)? Nahnu naqool laa ilaaha illa-Llah Muhammadun Rasoolullah. After this, how you can attack us? What is our sin, what is our ghuna? (Mawlana Shaykh sits.) Laa hawla wa laa quwatta illa billah! Say and write in books, in speeches, and in broadcasting. Why you are so rough ones? And Allah Almighty is ordering to be hayyin wa layyin, to be gentle. Why you are not gentle men? Say! Leave us; we are only asking, “How we can we please our Lord, Almighty Allah?” Leave your arguments, jidaal, and teach people how they can please their Lord! We are not asking for anything, not your money or your imitated titles. Write books on this topic and send them to me. You are not (spreading this message) because you are not on the Right Way!

Say, “O people! Your lives are ayyaman ma`doodaat, in numbered days. One day you are going to be taken from this life to unknown worlds. How you will be there, that you will be taken in the Divinely Presence?” Teach them, teach them, and leave arguments! Keep people’s respect and be gentle with them, and as much as you can give your pleasure to them, to crowd people around you (seeking true knowledge).

May Allah forgive us. Tawbah yaa Rabbee.

Mawlana Shaykh sings:

Dome, dome, dome, dome

Dome, dome, dome, dome

Dome, dome, dome, dome

Dome, dome, dome, dome

Who runs from trumpets here (this singing) can't hear heavenly singings and trumpets. Let them go! May Allah forgive us. Allah, Allah.
