Yaa Rabbee. Madad, yaa Sayyidee. (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) Laa ilaaha illa-Llah, laa ilaaha illa-Llah, la ilaaha illa-Llah Muhammadun Rasoolullah. For the honor of Your most honored and glorified deputy, we are asking heavenly support and we are saying, as-salaamu `alaykum yaa` ibaadillahi 's-saaliheen! (Mawlana Shaykh sits). As-salaamu `alaykum yaa Rijaalallah. As-salaamu `alayka yaa saahiba 'z-zamaan, as-salaamu `alayka yaa Qutubu 'l-Aqtaab, as-salaamu `alaykum yaa `ibaadullahi 's-saaliheen, amidoona bi-madadikoom.
We are looking for your heavenly support ..most... ones in our times, and we are saying a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani 'r-rajeem. That Shaytan thinking that no one can be more powerful than himself, and I am saying, itself that lowest level of creatures. No one can be under Shaytan's level. Deepest one! But it is thinking that, "I am powerful." And we are running to the Lord of Heavens as He ordered to say, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani 'r-rajeem. And we have been granted heavenly support through the heavenly sword of bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem! Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem is protecting us here in this life, in our graveyard, in Judgment Day! Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem. Allahu Akbar!
O Our Attenders! Now we are coming to you. As-salaamu `alaykum! How are you today? Collecting too much money? Yes. Everyone now asking to collect more and more and more from nonsense treasures of this life on this planet. Laa ilaaha illa-Llah, laa ilaaha illa-Llah, laa ilaaha illa-Llah. O our Lord! For the honor of Your most honored one, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.)
O People! If there was a value of treasures in this world, Allah Almighty was going to make those treasures to fall on His most beloved one as rains! He is able to send from heavens pearls, diamonds, rubies, and emeralds, yes. He is able!
O our Salafi `ulamas! Marhaban! Kayfa ahwaalakum? You like dunya? I think that you may find only a handful of people who hate dunya. Very few people you will find that are not going to prefer rains of pearls, diamonds, rubies, emeralds, and so many kinds of precious stones, if raining. I don't think to be on that place, who is not running to take something from it, very, very, very few ones. Try yourself, don't say to anyone else, but you try yourself. Say, "Shaykh Qurani, how are you going to be if raining one day from heavens emeralds, pearls and diamonds?" What do you think? Say righteously! Say, "I am not running to take even one." Can you say this? Say, for the honor of the most honored one. Are you thinking to run and to take even one diamond or one pearl? What do you think?
Our egos are making us to say, "If it is raining jewels, how I can stand here? I must carry as much as possible, I must collect, and bring a camel with sacks to fill it. But I am not looking to take too much, but they are so beautiful and my wife is going to be too happy! I must put in my pocket some of these pearls, or my wife will come to me with a stick if I tell her I was running in a valley of jewels! But I am scared to put so much, and then I am remembering, saying, 'O my darling, you like diamonds! Therefore I am taking (for you). Because I am a big `alim, scholar, I am only taking and putting to make you happy!'"
(And his wife answers) "O big Shaytan, you are Shaytan! Why not carrying to me even one handful? Instead you are coming to me saying you are zaahid (ascetic)! Why aren't you bringing those jewels of dunya to me?"
O Salafi `ulamas! If Allah Almighty, Qaadirun Muqtadar, the Most Capable Above All Capable, may do anything and everything! Perhaps in deserts He sends an instant rain of jewels! What are you going to do?
O People! Particularly doctors of Shar`iah, you must hear what Allah Almighty is saying! Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem. (Mawlana Shaykh stands.)
وَلَنَبْلُوَنَّكُمْ بِشَيْءٍ مِّنَ الْخَوفْ وَالْجُوعِ وَنَقْصٍ مِّنَ الأَمَوَالِ وَالأنفُسِ وَالثَّمَرَاتِ وَبَشِّرِ الصَّابِرِينَ
Wa la-nabluwanakum bi shay’in min al-khawf wa'l-ju`i wa naqsun mina'l-amwaali wa 'l-anfus wa 'th-thamaraati wa bashshiri 's-saabireen.
Be sure we shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives or the fruits (of your toil), but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere. (2:155)
You know that ayatu 'l-kareema? Wa la-nabluwanakum bi shay. (Mawlana Shaykh sits). Allahu Akbar!!! Allah Almighty is saying, "I am never leaving My servants, I am testing." Tajruba, test them all, they are mukallaf, responsible adults. Wa la-nabluwanakum bi shay "I am not leaving. I am going to try everyone at every level with so many things with different tests."
You understand, Salafi `ulamas? Why are you not saying to people and whole `ulamas? They are saying they are learned ones of Ahlu’l-Sunnah wa’l-Jama`ah or saying they are Shi`a, and that addressing, that khitaab of Allah is coming to them also. But the Lord of Heavens is looking to His servants, trying and testing them, making some of them to sit on hives of bees, saying, "Stay here but don't touch, that is amaana (a trust)." Is that true?
When the Lord of Heavens is saying, "Don't touch it," Shaytan is coming around and saying, "What are you doing here?"
"I am guardian on this hive."
"You tasted some of it?"
"It is forbidden to taste."
“Why? Yes, if not eating, but taste a little bit, look I am tasting.”
"Don't touch, this is amaana, a trust."
“Put a little bit, like this (in your mouth).”
Shaytan is never leaving until cheating him or putting a trap for him and using its countless tricks, saying, "Put a little bit (from that trust). Happy for me?" IT is never coming to his memory is from Shaytan, and when he looks, he sees Shaytan takes that and nothing happened, so he is also taking (from what is forbidden).
O People! O Salafi `ulamas!! I never heard from Salafi `ulamas or other doctors of Shari`ah or `ulamas from al-Azhar, to say in their speeches or addressing to people, warning people and saying, "O People, do you know that we were nasl al-Jannah, the generation of Paradise?" Yes. We don't know because you are not saying such things, Salafi `ulamas! Are you saying this?! Bring your addressing and declaration to people! Did you ever you say, "O Mankind, you were a generation of Paradise?" Is it true? We are nasl, generation of Paradise, and how it happened, we are thrown out of Paradise? Why are you not making clear what happened to Adam and Eve? Why are you not speaking of their generation? (Mawlana Shaykh stands.)
Allah Almighty is asking that honor to come into existence, and He appointed Mankind deputies, the highest rank of all Creation.This is an ocean of knowledge; what is coming to me to speak about such things is a reality and ocean of knowledge opening to Adam (a), whom Allah Almighty created by His divinely hands. (Mawlana Shaykh sits).
O Salafi `ulamas! Allah Almighty, jalla jalaaluhu, is giving hands to His deputies, what do you think? Does He have Hands? He is without hands and only giving us hands? Yes? Give an answer. Say, is there a Hand for Allah jalla jalaaluh? But you aren't able to know about the real being of the Hands of the Lord of Heavens.
Who is giving from His endless treasures of everything, Who is granting? Who is sending from skies rains and giving countless pleasures to Earth? And you, Mankind, eat and get pleasure, in endless pleasement. Without a hand, Allah (swt) is sending? Do you know such things? I don't know, but now it is coming and I am saying. I don't claim that I know such things, I know nothing! But the Lord of Heavens, according to His Divinely Will, is sending to His beloved one, and that beloved one is sending to someone in his ummah, and no one knows them, only that most well-knowing one knows as much as his Lord is giving to him, the Seal of Prophets (s). (Mawlana shaykh stands and sits.) How is He giving? Salafi `ulamas, say!!! Say realities, because some people are asking! And people, from beginning up to end, are drunk now and they are asking such a question!
Yes, Adam and Eve were in Paradise because their ranks were so high and it was impossible with that honor to be sent on Earth, full with every trouble, everything giving trouble to people, to Mankind. But the Lord of Heavens was asking that new Creation for them in a place according to maqaam, station, according to their honors. Therefore, Paradise was in existence and Allah Almighty created Adam there and getting up. Then what happened, because Man was tested to be under imtihaan, `inda 'l-imtihaan yukramu al-mar'u aw yuhaan (from a test, whether we succeed or not). Allah Almighty asking to give much more to Adam (a), to give to him higher Paradise's stations, but first testing and he fell down. Saying, "No, you must get out." What was the reason, O Salafi `ulamas, you know it?
وَلاَ تَقْرَبَا هَـذِهِ الشَّجَرَةَ فَتَكُونَا مِنَ الظَّالِمِي
wa laa taqrabaa haadhihi 'sh-shajarata fatakoona mina 'zh-zhaalimeen.
Don't approach this tree, for you will be of the sinners. (7:19)
Ayatul-kareema. (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) Holy order of the Lord of Heavens, "I am giving everything, but I am preventing you from that tree. And I am Lord, you are My servant. I have My right to test you, and every test is going to be a reason for a person either to get up or to fall down." (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)
Yes, they are making me to speak on a hive of bees! Shaytan coming, saying, as it came, entering Paradise and saying, "Don't eat, but taste, taste! I am happy! I am coming to you to give much more honor and to know much more from secret knowledges!" That is tree from secret things that no one knows but the Lord of Heavens. But they are hearing and listening and following shaytanic advice, shaytanic suggestions, "Come! Don't eat, but taste just a little bit." When putting that here (Mawlana Shaykh points to mouth), that raining from Divinely Existence coming on them is immediately cut off, and they are standing, naked ones!
O People! Say such wisdoms. Holy Qur'an is not a book of histories, but you must take hikmat, wisdom. Say to people, "You must not run after dunya, but you must run after heavenly grants, you must run after that one not sufli, lowest level. Try!” But the `ulamas are not saying such a things. I am nothing, but making me to address all people from east to west, from book-given people also whom are granted Old Testament and Injeel Shareef (New Testament), to all of them: I am bombarding shaytanic aspects! That is my mission, and this is very, very, very simple bombardment. Heavy bombardment coming after me. O people, look, listen and accept or heavy bombardment taking you away. May Allah forgive us, for the sake of most honored one, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.)
Tawbah yaa Rabbee, tawbah yaa Rabbee, tawbah yaa Rabbee.
(40 minutes) Mashaa-Allah, alhamdulillah.
