We Were Not Created to Kick a Ball Around

Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

6 June 2010 Lefke, Cyprus

Dastoor yaa Sayyidee, yaa RijalAllah. (Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

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

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Kareem Allah

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Subhaan Allah

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Sultaan Allah

Allahuma salli wa sallim wa baarik `alaa habeebika wa nabeeyika, Sayyidi 'l-Awwaleen wa’l-Akhireen, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh sits.) Madad, yaa RijaalAllah.

O People! You have been granted heavenly support and heavenly powers. One is enough or one may be more than enough by a hundred times for such a planet! Because that is a heavenly grant from Allah Almighty's Heavenly Presence, granted to His most beloved one in His Divinely Presence, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh stands). Zidhu yaa Rabbee `izzan wa sharafan nooran wa surooran, sultaanan wa ridwaana! (Mawlana Shaykh sits). Give respect and take respect. Give goodness and take back heavenly goodness. You may give something from this life, and everything that you are giving must be for your Lord Almighty. (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Allah, Allah. (Mawlana Shaykh sits).

Allah Almighty says, "We are granting even to an atom." He Almighty may grant to you like this whole planet! You may give a minor, small thing and He may grant to you something that even your imagination will never reach there! Allah Almighty is granting even what may be so small, but from Him that small thing is going to be doubled over and over again, it is such a Creation. He is the Creator and His grants are going to be according to His Majesty. He gives something according to His Mighty Kingdom! Not only your imagination (cannot comprehend it), but even if all creatures think on one point, their imagination can't reach even one smallest grant from our Lord's Mighty Kingdom! May Allah (swt) forgive us.

O People! Welcome to you. Who is attending, Allah Almighty is going to be happy with them. When Allah Almighty is getting happy with His servant, He gives to his servant countlessly. Why are you running after something from this life or its treasures or its land or its seas? Why are you running? Allah Almighty's smallest (part of) Divinely grant may be countless times of such a dunya and its treasures. "For what are you running?" "Because you are no-mind ones."

Here there is a heap of diamonds and on this side there is a heap of zabeel, rubbish, that baladi (municipality) is carrying from houses, that they are asking to throw away. (They are) coming from municipalities in big cars, taking (the rubbish) from outside, throwing it far away and pouring there. Mankind now, they are in such a position that there are heaps, not heaps, but hills; no, not hills, but like gigantic mountains or gigantic planets full with diamonds. You are leaving this and running after those WC products. No-mind people!

O People! Come and take something. What they are taking, something from heavenly grants, it is giving to you such a pleasure, you can't imagine. And all prophets were only coming to make people to look at mountains of diamonds. (They were) showing them this and showing, on another side, mu`aafan, rotten, dirty heaps. And you, O Mankind, are leaving the mountains of diamonds. You know only two colors from diamonds: one is white, and another, it is pearl, paba, pink. But on those mountains of diamonds, you can find such beautiful colors that if you are looking, you may fall down from (the awe of) its beautiful appearance. What shall we say? Our egos that are representing Shaytan, who is graduating them, are saying, "Don't believe. Now you shall take what I am showing to you from a heap of rubbish. People, don't look there, come and follow; take from this one, it is better for you."

O People! As-salaamu `alaykum. May Allah (swt) make you from the good level of understanding. If we don't have good understanding, we are always running after that rotten najasaat. As-salaamu `alaykum, O our Lord's servants. As-salaamu `alaykum, Huuuuu, yaa Qutb az-Zamaan, who is looking after everything on this planet. He is the pole for this planet. Salaam to you also and then salaam to those people that are asking something from Eternity. People are always running after something that is finally going to be nothing, and will be the worst rottings. But people are listening to Shaytan and its followers, not following holy prophets and their followers.

O People! As-salaamu `alaykum to those asking to follow some heavenly attendings, or attentions or heavenly grants. Come, give a very short time.We are saying that so many people are following Shaytan and smoking. Smokers are following Shaytan, no doubt. They are running after Shaytan and trying to taste something from that dirty plant's cigarettes and leaving eternal tastings. From the time that one of them is finishing one cigarette until they smoke another one, in that short time, one may reach up to heavens, to Eternity. O, Eternity! Eternity is giving so much freshness to our hearts and minds. So many people are complaining about their hearts and minds, and they are asking for a way to make their physical being in a restful,, happy way. It is impossible, because they are using something carrying them from one level to another level under it, and further under it, as much as they are smoking. Each time they are smoking, they are falling down into another dark place, then the second time they smoke again they fall into a black place, coming further down. And they are carrying something that is making them to go to a black, dark place, going under and under, to miseries and to sufferings over sufferings.

O People! Allah Almighty is giving to you meezaan, balance.

O Salafi `ulamas! We are saying, A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem. You are claiming that you are `ulamas and followers of Saalif as-Saalih. What does it mean that Allah Almighty is saying in Holy Qur'an:

وَوَضَعَ الْمِيزَانَ

wa wad`a al-meezaan.

And He has set up the Balance (of Justice). (55:7)

Is this from Holy Qur'an or am I saying on behalf of myself? Yes, wa wad`a al-meezaan, "He is putting a balance." For whom? For animals, angels, jinn, or for Mankind? For whom the Lord of Heavens is making that balance? أَلَّا تَطْغَوْا فِي الْمِيزَانِ

Alaa tatghaw fi 'l-meezaan.

In order that ye may not transgress (due) balance. (55:8)

Ordering you must keep balance. That is in Surat ar-Rahmaan, you may recite it. Alaa tatghaw fi 'l-meezaan, ordering for that, and you must keep that balance. For everything you must be very careful not to lose the real balance that the Lord of Heavens granted to you.

Wa wad`a al-meezaan, "putting balance." Putting balance for what, O `ulamas? For what? For balancing sha`eer, barley, weighing, (balance). Allah Almighty is sending that balance from heavens and giving to His beloved ones and ordering them to say, "O People! Use that balance." For what? For barley, or for wheat or rice? For what? Say! You are saying, "We are `ulamas." Why are you not saying to people, "Why Allah Almighty is saying, wa wad`a al-meezaan ? Where did He put that balance?" Outside, that you are charging for pilgrims' sandooq, boxes (baggage)? And those people are not fearing Allah (swt) and are saying, "We must weigh this bag." Is that balance for this? And they are saying, "We must weigh it, because that balance is heavy and you must give more money." Is it for that balance? wa wad`a al-meezaan. Say, say!

That balance is for Mankind to balance their actings, their demands. What do you think? Tilka 'l-meezaan, is it for balancing this world's diamonds, or for anything you say is valuable? Now we are using electronic balances everywhere and saying, "You must pay 100 riyals, or 1,000 riyals."

“For what?"

"Because our balance is saying you must pay this."

For what, for the merchant? Why not say, “That balance is for our actings, for our minds, for our hearts, for our physical beings.” Why are you not saying wa wad`a al-meezaan? The whole Muslim world is running after a dirty system, leaving Allah Almighty's meezaan, balance, and running after democracy, saying, "We must bring a new balance for our people." Who gave you that authority, and which qaanoon, law or rule, may be like heavenly rules? Why are you not speaking, O learned people? Why you are not saying?

O Salafi `ulamas from all Islamic territories! Why are you not saying, "Use this balance, Barlamaans, Parliaments," making such foolish laws and rules to make people under their oppressions. Why are you not saying? You are fearing from Man; you are not fearing from Allah Almighty!

O People! "And He has set up the Balance (of Justice)" on your efforts, on your actions, on everything you are doing. Is it true or not? From where are you bringing that barlamaan, Parliament? Are you ever putting your Parliament on that meezaan? Why are people not fearing from Allah (swt)? Why they are putting a Parliament and not fearing from the sultan? A heavy burden we are putting on ourselves. ... This one is saying he is Chief Minister of Internal Affairs, Minister of Sports. I never heard in Holy Qur'an an order for people to make such foolish playings and to make someone in government look after sports. Football. Where is football? Saudi Arabia.

O Salafi `ulamas! Why are you not saying this is haraam? From everywhere our youngsters try to learn football. That is a big responsibility and that is big, to come against Allah Almighty's order. Why are you not saying:

وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ

wa maa khalaqta 'l-jinna wa 'l-ins illa li-ya`budoon.

I have only created jinns and men, that they may serve Me. (51:56)

(Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.) Where are our `ulamas from Azhar ash-Shareef? Why are they not saying this is haraam? (Mawlana Shaykh raises his hand, like holding a trophy.) Where are our `ulamas? Why don't they ask you?

Once upon a time, you should be happy. Sultan Ibraheem Khan was a big sultan. He was liking to hunt, for in hunting there are some ways to make for people some benefits. But for sultans, hunting is something else, and he was following one deer. And he was just hearing a signal from `Aalamu 'l-Ghayb, Hidden Territories, saying, "Yaa Ibraheem, alihaadha khuliqta? Do you think that you have been created for hunting?" and a second voice coming to him, "O Ibraheem! Do you think that heavenly order is coming to you for hunting?"

In football, the football is on this side, and on that side they are running for that football! So much foolishness, and hundreds of thousands of people are following that. `Ulamas, doctors of shari`ah, Azhar ash-Shareef, why are you not guiding Muslims that it is haraam? That means Muslims don't know what is halaal and what is haraam. How blessings from heavens will come on them?

O People! That is going against your egos, but you must accept heavenly commands and orders or you will be under Shaytan or its followers. May Allah forgive us. Fatihah.

They are using here a balance for football. Why are they not using that balance for manafiyaa, the benefit of Muslims? Why you are not using that heavenly balance? You should be patient. You will be punished; if not now, on the Day of Resurrection. May Allah (swt) send to us someone that shows us how to live in an honored way for the Lord of Heavens.
