(Mawlana Shaykh stands) Laa ilaaha illa-Llah. Laa ilaaha illa-Llah. Laa ilaaha illa-Llah Muhammadun Rasoolullah `alayhi salaatullah wa salaamu, Khazaliqa as-salaamu alaykum yaa anbiya Allah, yaa `ibaadAllah as-saliheen, yaa rijalAllah amidoona bi madadikum. A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem, laa hawla wa la quwatta illa billahi 'l-`Aliyyu 'l-`Azheem (Mawlana Shaykh sits)
Thumma salaamu `alayk yaa Sahib az-Zamaan. As-salaamu `alayk yaa Qutb az-Zamaan, as-salaamu alaykum yaa as-haab an-nawbah fee mashaariq wal `ard wa maghaaribihaa. (Mawlana Shaykh sings in Turkish)
Thumma as-salaamu `alaykum, our attenders! Mashaa-Allah, jama`tum, today too many, too much money you reached. You are happy today because you reached so many millions or billions of pounds, euros, or dollars also. Happy? What did you do for charity in this passing week? Say, "We did this, we did that." In the past all sultans made charities in their names, to make their names live up to the end of the world, for it to be said, "Allah is blessing them that they built that huge mosque for poor people, imaraat khanna, where poor people come to eat, drink, and rest." And they built so many schools with their own money as charity for the nation of the Seal of Prophets, peace be upon him, to learn and to do their best for their Lord, Almighty Allah.
Yes, there is a level of people whom prophets call, "Come to your servanthood! Try to do your best service for your Lord." They are the first level of people prophets called. Prophets called another group, saying, "You are also giving your charity for people, to lift their heaviness from them. That is a grant of the Lord of Heavens for the honor of His most honored servant." Yaa Rabbee, tawbah yaa Rabbee. A group of people have also been called to make charities for weak people, to make them happy.
O Salafi `ulamas! Marhaban! Kayfa shaafikum al-yawm? Are you happy? Happy! Allah Allah, SubhaanAllah. What do you think for hadeeth ash-shareef of the Seal of Prophets (s): (Mawlana Shaykh stands)
الجزاء من جنس العمل
Al-jazau min jins al-`amal, kama tadeerutun.
Punishment/reward is from the aspect of work.
I know some ahadeeth also. (Mawlana Shaykh sits) That is very important and I am addressing to Salafi `ulamas who claim they are `ulamas, learned ones ordered to teach people. That is their mission; they must teach people, and say to them, al-jazau min jins al-`amal. There is jazaa'an hasanan,for good-doing ones, if they are doing good, they are rewarded with good. Anyone who is making his charity, making good services, Allah Almighty is not in need of our services but He is always asking, "O My servants, look after My weak servants. Yes, I may give to them, I may make some ones rich and some other ones are needy. Those who I granted power to do goodness and to make charities, I am leaving them and saying, 'O My rich servants! Look after weak ones, make your charity for them. O People! Deal with them with justice, `adl; keep justice. O My mighty servants and My rich servants! Look for and help My weak ones."
O Salafi `ulamas! Allah Almighty likes weak ones to be protected. He is Qadir, Muqtadir! He is able to do everything and His order is between kaf and noon. But you must think on it, You must give your naseeha, good advising to your kings, maliks, umaras, rich ones.
O People! Come and do something good. For the sake of your Lord, look after weak ones and grant them from your charities, to make them happy and make Allah Almighty thankful. For what? Allah Almighty granted you something and you are giving to others. We are so far away from the real meaning of being "good servants" for the Lord of Heavens! He granted you treasures to help others, not to keep storing them in safes, for what?
Allah Almighty is saying, "O My servants, don't save golden or silver, or jewels, but give, because I am happy when you are giving and I am angry when you are not giving."
This is a new opening for all nations, particularly the Muslim community. The Muslim community, whose whole ijtihad, efforts, are to make much more money, jewels and treasures! And Allah Almighty is able to make rain on some parts of continents, and wealthy Muslims seeing the news every night that millions need even a handful of rice, and they don't care, they are not taking care of them! They say, "O! We sent 20 million. Our malik just sent 50 million." It is nothing, because some of you have 50 billion, and some of you have trillions, some have quadrillions! For what?!! Why are our Salafi `ulamas not warning them, "O our mulook! O our kings and rich ones! Make your charities before you are buried under this world!" Why are they not saying, and Allah Almighty is ordering them, wa dhakkir "And remind them!"
O `ulamas! You are only claiming you are Salafi `ulamas. Say, which king among your kings is sending charity throughout east and west? Which one sent from his name one billion dollars? Let them send it, and then say, “Our king sent that amount.” If they are sending, they must make it clear for everyone to see, to be happy and pray for them, here and Hereafter! That is the most important point! But our `ulamas are only saying, "Blah, blah, blah (empty words)." Leave that and make charity! That is a holy command from Allah Almighty, not from me! I am nothing, but, alladhee antaqa kulla shay just antaqanee, "Who made everything speak is making me to speak!" Don't say, "That old one is saying this," no! What He is putting in my heart, I am addressing to all people!
Give your charities more and more, because a time is coming about which is mentioned in Shari`atullah, fee akhbaree `akhir az-zamaan, "news of Signs of the Last Days" of dunya. There is coming a day now, when people will accumulate so much gold, but people will not take from them, because Allah Almighty is sending to believers from His blessings. There just came for Jesus Christ one tray of food; is there only one tray in Heavens? But when the Last Day is approaching, Sayyidina Mahdi (a) must come, and then Allah Almighty will send trays like in time of Sayyidina `Isa (a), daily, because some people will say, astaghfirullah, "Is Allah Almighty so poor that He sends only one tray? What about other people through centuries?" He is asking to show His people that He is able to send trays anytime His servant opens his hands and says, "O my Lord! Send us from Your secret trays because I am busy worshiping You! I am busy serving You! Urzukna, give our rizq, provisions," and Allah Almighty is sending in the time of Mahdi (a) and `Isa (a), daily coming to everyone's homes trays that it is impossible to bring to everyone!
(Mawlana Shaykh stands) Allah Almighty is jalaaluhu ghaniyun mutlaq fa`alun limaa yureed, "the Absolute Wealthiest, He is doing as He likes." (Mawlana Shaykh sits) That day is coming, and when it arrives, what will be the value of your gold you saved? Nothing, nothing!
O our Salafi `ulamas! Wa dhakkir, "and remind them," ummat al-Habeeb, the nation of the Seal of Prophets! They must try to increase their charities much more now, much more, much more, because soon no one is going to accept charity, saying, "We have and we don't need it." That time is approaching now! I don't know if it will happen in one year, two years, or three years when that heavenly ikraam, generosity, will appear from the Lord of Heavens. Give now and take heavenly grants now! If you are not giving, your wealth will be useless, for you and others!
O People! Allah Almighty is asking for good servanthood and from it, one part is for His majestic glory: to pray, pray, pray! And the second part is not for Him: give charity to the poor. Now the time is over. We hope that those days are approaching quickly and people will find in front of them such a position, such beings that they will be astonished. Give now! If you are not giving, you will weep on the Day of Resurrection, saying, "Why didn't I give more charity?" May Allah forgive us.
O People! It is good advice and a heavenly teaching, for me, for you, and for all believers. If someone does not believe, don't occupy yourself with them; look after yourself and ask for forgiveness and your Lord's blessing. May Allah bless us for the honor of the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits)
