Dastoor yaa Sayyidee, Sultaan al-Anbiya. (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.
Laa ilaaha illa-Llah Sayyidina Muhammadun Rasoolullah (s). Zidhu yaa Rabbee `izzan wa sharafan nooran wa surooran, sultaanan wa ridwaana. Raghman `ala anf shayateen, shayateen min al-ins wa 'l-jinn fayakoon tahta aqdaamina. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)
Say, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani 'r-rajeem! Say, Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem! (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) Al-`azhaamatulillah wal `izzattu lillah wal-jabarootu lillah, subhaanAllah. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.) And we are giving our salutes to all holy ones from Heavens and from Earth in east and west, from north to south. There must be holy ones, and they are victorious. Shaytan and its followers, students and successors are under my feet!! They feel that they can do something, or Shaytan is making them to believe that all the power is in his hands or under his tasarruf, control. What is Allah (swt) saying? (Mawlana Shaykh stands.)
أَنَّ الْقُوَّةَ لِلّهِ جَمِيعاً
wa anna ‘l-quwatta lillahi jamee`an,
And that Power is for Allah, altogether. (2:165)
(Mawlana Shaykh sits.) What is Shaytan? What is Shaytan? But making itself so gigantic one and trying to make people to think that that is controlling everything on Earth. But even an ant, it can't be under Shaytan's control.
أَفِي اللّهِ شَكٌّ
Is there a doubt in Allah? (14:10)
Astaghfirullah. Allah, swt. This is a humble association, but through east and west only authorized one in our days for controlling whole world and controlling whole Mankind and not only controlling, but protecting. Protecting. One protector is more than enough for whole world. And we are saying salute to him, as-salaamu `alayka yaa Qutbu ‘l-Mutasarrif who controls everything on Earth and under Earth. On continents and also oceans just under control of that grand wali, Qutb al-Mutasarrif. But no need to use for Shaytan and its followers such a power. Yes. Allah Almighty giving control on that one Qutb al-Mutasarrif for warning whole nations, and the smallest creature, like virus that can't be seen under mighty microscope also. With that may threaten, terrifying, to make people to fear. Ordering one, one so small one, threatening whole world people with a small creature that you can't be able to see even under mighty microscope. And people trembling from that unseen creature; they are knowing that it is in existence but they can't see, can't touch, they can't take it away.
أَنَّ الْقُوَّةَ لِلّهِ جَمِيعاً
anna ‘l-quwwata lillahi jamee`an.
That to Allah belongs all power. (2:165)
Muqaabil. Muqaabil, accepted in front of that. Allah, swt, saying (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) Fa inna ‘l-quwwata lillahi jamee`an, "Truly the power is for God, all of it.” Yes. Powerful.
وَخُلِقَ الإِنسَانُ ضَعِيفًا
Wa khuliqa ‘l-insaana da`eefa.
We have created man weak. (2:48)
Insaan just created weak and that meaning of weakness, no one knowing except our Creator. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)
And everything under control; nothing going to be as it likes. No. Everything in existence must be controlled and under full control. One representative from heavenly holy ones on Earth controlling everything. Enough, more than enough to look from east to west, from north to south, on continents and under oceans. Everything must be under control of that one who representing Allah Almighty's endless Power Oceans.
But Shaytan making itself (appear) so powerful and people fearing. They are trembling from something that they can't be able to make it away from themselves. Because we have been created weak. Whole Power Oceans, Mighty Ocean, Mightiness for Allah Almighty. Everything under His control and one wali controlling everything according Allah Almighty's iradah, Will.
O Attenders! As-salaamu `alaykum. Some of them are attending only through windows, some of them are looking from up, and some of them from under my feet. They are trembling also, because this addressing is not easy. Such a one who has control, has the power to say, “Be!” and it comes in existence. Because Allah Almighty is never going to occupy His Mighty Oneness for such a thing that has no value.
O Salafi `ulamas! Marhaban! What's the news? Good news! Say to me how you are walking, how you are running, how you are looking, how you are speaking, how you are hearing, how you are thinking, and how you are trying to learn and to know? Say! It is a grant from Heavens or you have that by yourself? Say! You are claiming that you are teaching people. Teach them about themselves. How is a seed opening in the Earth and getting up? With which One's power are trees going to give their flowers? Say! How is Mankind running from east to west, from north to south? Say!
اتحسب انك جرم صغير وفيك انطوى العالم الاكبر
Atahsabu annaka jirmun sagheer wa feeka intawa al-`alam al-kabeer,
"You think you are a small particle, but within you is folded a larger world."
Like Sayyidina `Ali (r), a great `alim! SubhaanAllah.Give lights to people. Take them from darkness, take them from doubts and give them certainty. People are like this and like that (uncertain). Give them! Take from them doubt and give them certainty to know Who is controlling Creation and with Whose command every creature is coming into existence!! Each human is an independent being through the universe! Mankind now is saying about the huge distances for the universe, that from here to there the speed of light needs one-billion years. But they are not understanding the real creation, Mankind. Who created Mankind and why making distances so that no one can calculate its years, its distances?
من عرف نفسه فقد عرف ربه
Man `arafa nafsah faqad `arafa Rabbah, “Who knows himself, knows his Lord.”
Learn about yourself before asking about your Creator’s haqeeqat, Essence. Try to learn about yourself and leave that, because you can't move more than your limit to understand insaan, Mankind. He is the representative of the Creator of all Creation, when he is here (on this planet).
Why are they not explaining to people about the honor, the importance, the limits, and the kamaal (perfection), Perfection Oceans that have been granted to Man? Say! So that when you are knowing about yourself, you are going to bow (Mawlana Shaykh bows in ruku`) to Allah Almighty, not five times, but you are going to bow your forehead for the Lord of Creation up to the end, up to the end, up to Eternity. Eternity is a word that no one can understand; the real being of Eternity. Eternity gives real refreshment to people's hearts, to be happy and joyful. Such happiness and such countless Pleasure Oceans are opening to them. Allah Almighty is not in need of those oceans, no. All Creation is for His servants that have the honor to be mansoob, related (to Him as) His Creation. It is enough to be in existence! Therefore, everything is enjoying and everything is in enjoyment because they are in existence.
O Salafi `ulamas! Make people to wake up! It is not important to add numbers of raka`ats or faraa'id, obligations. It is so simple, small ones may know and learn this, but most important is the way that is carrying people to the Divinely Presence. And the ghayah is to reach Divinely Presence, and beyond that aim, you can't find any other aim, to reach the Heavenly Presence of the Lord of Heavens. SubhaanAllah. Azaliyyun-abadiyyun, from pre-Eternal up to Eternity, “Eternity for you, O My representatives in Creation." Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar!
Every cruelty and every ignorance is making people to be blind and making people to run in darkness.O Salafi `Ulamas! What did prophets bring? Say! What did they bring? Do you think that they were bringing that tray, as the disciples of Jesus Christ (a) were asking? Is that all the limits of their minds is asking from such a big prophet, whose creation was miraculous from beginning up to end? Are you asking, "O Jesus, do you think that Who sent you to us may send us a tray?" What is that? Where are the Companions and where are the disciples of Jesus Christ? Where are their levels? Were the Companions (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits) asking from the Seal of Prophets (s) at any time, "Yaa Rasoolullah! Do you think your Lord may send us a tray from Heavens?" Where is that nation around Sayyidina `Isa (a)? And look at the Sahaaba, Companions of the Seal of Prophets (s)! Why are you not saying, O Salafi `ulamas, doctors of Shari`ah and shaykhs of al-Azhar ash-Shareef? Why are you not making that point clear? And you are only saying that Allah Almighty sent to the disciples a tray with eleven kinds of food on it.
That was their material bodies' desires. They were not knowing what spiritual desires are. They are not reaching that. And you also, why are you not? All nations now are asking for a tray from Heavens for them. And we Muslims, ummat ul-Habeeb, are also asking. There is no other aim or desire for us except asking for trays for ourselves to enjoy our physical beings!! Why are you not making it clear to people? What were the disciples of Jesus Christ asking? And which Companions of the Seal of Prophet's asked, "Yaa Rasoolullah, pray for trays to come down for us!” If saying that, and the Seal of Prophets was asking, there would come trays up to the Day of Resurrection! But no one was asking for that, as their understanding was of the highest level. Instead, they were putting stones, and no one was asking, “Yaa Rasoolullah, pray to your Lord to send us trays of something to eat." That is the difference between the nation of Jesus Christ (a) and the nation of the Seal of Prophets (s).
But people are mostly occupied with themselves. Wahabi people have no minds; they are not understanding. I am not addressing to them, but I am addressing to Salafi `ulamas. Why are they not making clear to people such subjects, to make people wake up to take as much as possible before the Day of Resurrection? When the trumpet is blown, then finished! Or when our souls are getting out (of our bodies) that chance and everything is finished!
من حسن إسلام المرء تركه ما لا يعنيه
inna min husnu Islama 'l-mar'u tarkahu maa laa y`aneeh.
From the proper Islam of a person, to leave alone what is not his business. (Narrated by Ahmad.)
Now mostly the ummah of the Seal of Prophets (s) is occupied with maa laa y`aneeh, something that is not important for here or Hereafter, maa laa y`aneeh, something that is not necessary or giving any benefit to people! That is important, but say something about how Shaytan is directing learned people that are heedless ones, and they are not asking someone to take away heedlessness from them. Rather, they are saying, “We know everything!” but they are not knowing anything. May Allah forgive us.
People! Come and listen. We must listen and we must try to do our best for our Lord, Almighty Allah. O our Lord! Forgive us, and we ask for someone to come to wake us up from heedlessness before the Day of Judgment, the Day of Resurrection, to know and to be in the Divine Presence in pleasure and in lights. O our Lord, forgive us and send from Your endless Mercy Oceans for correcting our ways to Your Divine Presence.
(42 minutes.) Thank you.
