What is the Fortress from Shaytan?

Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

26 March 2010 Lefke, Cyprus

Suhbah after Jumu`ah Khutbah

Madad yaa RijaalAllah. Madad yaa Saahib az-Zamaan. Madad yaa Sayyidina, yaa Sultaanu 'l-Awliya.

As-salaamu `alaykum! kayfa asbahtum? Welcome to you! Ay shab`aneen, full or hungry? Hungry? Angry! As-salaamu `alaykum! Marhaban, marhaban, marhaban! As-salaamu `alaykum! How are your heads? The Germans are very angry because they do not understand and you understand only wie geht es, while the Pakistanis surrendered to their women without covering on their heads, while the Turks do not ask, (they) have the solution. The Arabs fight amongst themselves, and the Prophet (s) said, “Mahdi (a) will be among the Arab tribes and their opponents.” In Lebanon, most of our Lebanese brothers contradict and if one says “white” the other says “no,” and if one says “black” the other says “white.”

Dastoor yaa RijaalAllah. Madad yaa Sultanu 'l-Awliya. If there is no heavenly support, we are nothing and we know nothing, but much knowledge that benefits people do not know, and each one has a different understanding. We are asking (for knowledge), and saying we are knowing nothing. So many knowledges, but which one is giving benefit to people they are not understanding because each one has a different understanding.

As, once upon a time the raja, prince of an Indian tribe, brought an elephant and then brought a lot of blind ones, and said to them, "What is in front of you, say."

One was reaching his trunk, saying, "This is a big pipe."

Another was catching the elephant's ear and saying, "This in front of me is a fan."

One was catching from its tail and looking and saying, "This is a brush."

Another one was catching his feet and saying, "This is a pillar of a building."

Another one was making like this (patting), "This looks like a wall of a castle."

Every understanding is going to be different, everyone is saying according to their senses and understanding because they are blind people. And we are saying now, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem, for Shaytan not to come here to make our people angry toward each other or to me. Yes, if coming, it is coming to make trouble, because the greatest troublemaker is Shaytan! And teaching how a person must be a troublemaker, saying to them, "Make trouble to others so that one is not going to make trouble for you." Therefore, everyone is a troublemaker now because they think, "If I make trouble for that one, he can't do anything against me, he can't trouble me!" So that whole nation is filled with troublemakers from their head up to their feet and everyone is trying, because that one may create trouble, and everyone is looking to a second one with bad ideas. Everyone is thinking, "That is against me; he may give me trouble now or in the future."

SubhaanAllahi 'l-`Aliyyu 'l-`Azheem! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits), Mawla-i-Kareem, He is warning, "O People! Mostly people are troublemakers." Only you can find a few people who are not troublemakers. Who are they, O Salafi `ulamas? Once again, O Salafi `ulamas, who they are that are not making trouble to servants of the Lord? We are saying, bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem. What is coming to me I shall speak, but I am asking Salafi `ulamas, who are safe from being troublemakers? Can't be, must be some ones that are not making trouble for people. First of all, bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem! Therefore, I am asking Salafi `ulamas, who are those that are making trouble for others, for servants of Allah? It is important to know them, yes. If you are not knowing them, they are kicking you out because they are representatives of Shaytan and they have been graduated by Shaytan.

Who are those people who are not troublemakers? I am asking now through mamlaka, kingdom, as they know in the Islamic world, much more powerful and greatness dressed on them. One country is sitting at the heart of Muslim countries, and `ulamas in that kingdom are thinking also that they are kings of `ulamas all over the world and everywhere `ulamas must learn from them, must listen to them, must follow to them!!! But I am asking you to say to me, are you warning troublemakers daily or not? There are so many people, as we said, who are troublemakers.

Marhaban, O Salafu 's-Saliheen `ulamas! You are reciting Qur'an Kareem? "Oh yes sir, day and night, laylan wa nahaara." Very good, I like it. And one question I must ask you, because you are looking at yourself sitting on a tower and people are downstairs (beneath you). Say to me, who are the troublemakers and who are those not giving trouble? I think that this is a strange question, but it is important. Say! I am asking for an answer. You may say through your broadcasting or writing or any way you may send me an answer about troublemakers! You know who are troublemakers. How we can save ourselves from them? What is Allah Almighty saying and ordering for saving ourselves from troublemakers? Are you remembering ayatun kareema? Say, if you are remembering. It is never passing through your mind what we are reminding you. If you have some secret knowledge about holy verses of Holy Qur'an, you must understand. What they are saying to me here, they are pointing to an answer also, because I am not claiming I am knowing, but what they are saying to me I am knowing.

Say, you say! "We are `alims from Pakistan, from Turkestan, from Arabistan." Who is that one that can answer me? If you like to be safe from troublemakers, what must you do? Yes, in old times when there were battles between armies, when one side of true armies saw in front of them a much more powerful army and they must take them away, where were they running? Now I am saying, and in mamlakah, kingdom, there was one in Madinatu 'l-Munawwarah (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) `ala saakinaha afdal as-salaatu wa 's-salaam, (Mawlana Shaykh sits.) there was a fortress or castle against troublemakers, and when they asked to run in Madinatu 'l-Munawwarah to defeat them, people ran from those troublemakers to the fortress. Now we are saying, they are making me to say that, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, we are in need now of a fortress to run in it, to be there so we can be in safety from troublemakers! Yes? Bilaadikum mawjood, fortress, too much, everywhere. This is an example to make people wake up. They can make me to speak just like I am reading a book, but they are making such positions to make people wake up and think! If they are not thinking, not-thinking one are animals and now people leave thinking.

"O Shaykh, why we are going to think? We now have new technologia named 'Internet.'" We are not in need to think on it, we are making ... through foot or hands, small ones, we are making our fingers like this, like that, and we are not in need for thinking. Just pressing a button and I am looking like this. Is Shaytan in it? Must be so many shaytans, yes sir. People are not thinking now, giving everything to machines and they are surrendering to Shaytan, saying, "We are under your orders."

Now they are making me to make a clarification. That is an important question that I am asking also, not only to Salafi `ulamas, but I am also asking from non-Muslim world's chiefs. I am asking to His Holiness the Pope, and he is going around but he is not speaking on such subjects. He is making like this, like this (nodding), it is not enough. Even one billion popes can't do anything for the Christian world. Rabbis also, a billion rabbis can't do anything for their nation, or other nations. I don't think that in Pakistan, or Hindustan `ulamas, Samarkand, Tashkent, Damascus `ulamas, in Egypt, very proud also to be Azhari 'sh-Shareef. Shaykhu 'l-Azhari 'sh-Shareef, I am asking to you, how can we can save ourselves from Shaytan and its troubles?

That is important for the whole world, and no one up to today is asking this. How can we save ourselves from the troubles of Shaytan? What is a fortress for Muslims to save themselves from Shaytan and its followers, jahanamiyyoon? If the Christian world's chief is not knowing the way for what we are saying, to save people from Shaytan and its tricks and traps and its troubles, all nations are in troubles on behalf of Shaytan, nothing else. That is an important speech! You must listen, you must say, "We are on the wrong way and (must change to) the right way to save ourselves from Shaytan's troubles."

Astiazubillah! (Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ اتَّقُواْ اللّهَ وَكُونُواْ مَعَ الصَّادِقِينَ

Yaa ayyuha 'l-ladheena aamanoo ittaqullaha wa koonu ma` as-saadiqeen.

O you who believe! Fear Allah and be with those who are true (in word and deed). (9:119)

Salafi `ulamas, am I wrong? Saheeh, or ghalat (true or false)? Say! Idhaa fee kalamee ayyi khataa fa 'l-yadhabu ila jahannam. "That shaykh is speaking wrong." If the shaykh is speaking wrong, you must go to Jahannam! (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

One aayatun kareemah, asking Shaykh ul-Azhar, if what I am understanding, I am not understanding but I have been supported with heavenly ones' support and authorized on lowest leveled one as who cleans streets, true or not? Wa koonu ma` as-saadiqeen. Allah Almighty is saying, "If you are asking to be in a heavenly fortress, you will find the door through saadiqeen." Say to me now, you Salafu 's-Saalih, Salafi `ulamas, say with whom you are now! Don't say to me who passed away, no, say to me now. There are saadiqeen, so many. Even if they are a handful, yes, say to me, which one you are following that we may follow him also! We are not following you! But if you are saying saadiqeen, are saadiqeen only three people? You are wrong, no way for nations to be saved here and Hereafter, only if three are true ones! Yes. OK? OK? Anyone may come here and say! I am catching my stick here, if coming against ayatun kareemah, if I am hitting on his head, going to be like this (splits). Sometimes this may be a sword making from up to down. Believe in reality that prophets are bringing from heavens!

Wa min Allahi 't-tawfeeq. Fatihah.

True or not? Marhaban Salafi `ulamas, ha-ha! Fatihah.

Unexpected. I was not thinking to speak on this, but it is so important for the whole world!
