Yaa Rabbee, shukr. Yaa Rabbee, shukr. Yaa Rabbee, shukr. (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Hasbun Allah. Hasbun Allah wa ni`mal wakeel ni`mal Mawla wa ni`mal Naseer.
Zidhu yaa Rabbee `izzan wa sharafan nooran wa surooran, wa ridwaana wa sultaanan wa man tabi`ahu min al-anbiya wa 'l-awliyaa wa 's-saaliheen, yaa Rabbi 'l-`Alameen. (Mawlana Shaykh sits) O Rabbana, `afwak wa ridaak. O our Lord, we are weak servants! Give us, O our Lord, our Creator, much more strength for standing up for heavenly obligations. We know we are weak ones, as You Almighty are saying: (Mawlana Shaykh stands)
وَخُلِقَ الإِنسَانُ ضَعِيفًا
Wa khuliqa 'l-insaana da`eefa.
We have created man weak. (4:28)
(Mawlana Shaykh sits) As you said, O our Lord, "Man is created weak." irham da`fana, Have mercy on our weakness. You grant us from heavenly support and sufficiency to stand up for Your holy commands, to keep them and to follow Your heavenly commands. O our Lord! Please write our names under the table of good ones, good servants. If our names are written as bad servants, we are asking for forgiveness and Your blessings!
We are saying our salaam and salute for our world's commander, qutb, Qutb al-Mutasarrif, who is looking after everything on behalf of our Lord's command.
May Allah forgive us. Ask forgiveness and you will find your Lord forgiving and granting from endless Mercy Oceans, from His endless Blessing Oceans! Look at yourself, O Mankind, and don't claim useless things, that you are strong ones, that you are victorious ones, or that you are powerful ones, because you have so many aspects from this life. Don't think that material aspects are giving you power, no! Don't believe that material aspects are supporting you. Don't trust people who are heedless ones or ignorant ones; who are they trusting? Mankind! They are heedless ones, and those no-mind people are those who trust material aspects and become proud with massive treasures. Those are unlucky, no-mind people and losing their chance in the Divinely Presence.
O our Attenders! Don't trust your imitated titles; leave that. Don't trust on material aspects. If trusting on material aspects, they are so foolish, no-mind ones and their levels are under the levels of animals. Those people are even going to be cheated with their dressing and their nonsense titles. Now you may even go in a government office and see a person sitting at a desk with writing, "Chief Commissioner, Mr. Foolish One." Or it is written on it, "Director of this big building, Mr. Monkey." Or you are entering and looking at a very fat person sitting behind a table that is very well decorated and his chair may be enough for three people to sit on, but it is only for himself, and in front of him is written, "Mr. Chairman of Limited Companies, Mr. Elephant." Or getting in it and you are finding a person, never smiling, a very, very proud one and if anyone is entering inside, showing that he is so proud and never saying, "Sit down, " but saying, "Look where you are, in front of whom." It is writtten on that one, "Mr. Chimpanzee, the First from Monkey Territory." And another one is sitting behind or on the left hand side of that one, and it is written on its table also, "The Second Chairman for the Monkey's Territories, Prime Minister, Mr. Orangutang." Or you are entering to another office to ask for something and see a very angry person sitting, and his chair may be for three people, sitting on it and putting his eyeglasses like this.
He says, "Who are you?"
"O Your Excellency, I am your servant."
"What do you want?"
"I want to reach a monkey's area in southern Africa, to be the chimpanzees' chairman."
"Yes sir, you are my servant!"
He turns to his assistant and orders, "Please write that he is asking to be deputy in the jungles of India, and that his order must be there in writing. Put my stamp on it and send him away!"
Are you understanding what I am saying? Yes, that is a reality, that those who have some power in their hands are looking at people as if they are downstairs and looking for themselves as upstairs. Therefore, they are looking and saying, "Who are you? What do you want?"
"I am Mr. Cock, here to complain about foxen."
"What are they doing?"
"They are always running after cocks, hunting and eating them. We are looking for justice."
That magistrate turns to his assistant and orders, "Please write for them that order, that I am the king of jungles, ordering to wolves that they must be very, very keenly looking after jungles, for everyone to keep to their levels. That is my order. If wolves are meeting foxen running after cocks, you must stop that. If dying, they are not making trouble for cocks and hens also."
OK? Understand? Now in all countries you may find such people who think they are special ones in the jungles of this world, and they can do anything or make trouble for everyone, but they are never happy to be in trouble by anyone, even from ants! Why are we saying this, O our attenders? Because you are not understanding heavenly knowledge. They are making me to speak on your levels, the level of animals, the level of jungles. I can't speak about up, because our attenders are never taking any care; therefore, I am saying their real personalities are under the levels of animals! Some of them belong to Australian deserts, Indian jungles, at desert peoples' levels. I must speak to you like this because you are not understanding heavenly declarations; you are never giving any value, so I am making a theater for you today!
Yes, you are so proud! Shaytan is blowing to everyone from Mankind that, "You can never be an ordinary person; you must always be a VIP." So we are coming down and showing the egoistic levels of people living on this planet. The Lord of Heavens is calling you to His Divinely Presence, but you are insisting to be VIPs on this planet. Take your VIP ranks! Who is asking to be on a VIP level on this planet, their names are appointed from Heavens as wolf, fox, snake, bear, tiger, or wild animal! People now are insisting to be on the level of animals. Very few people are asking to reach VIP people in Heavens; their interest is only for this life. Take it! But it is going to be written, "That was a representative of wolves, or foxen, or donkeys, or of so-and-so."
Why are you not trying to be a heavenly representative on Earth? You are always going to be angry with me because I am asking you to look up, to ask for heavenly ranks and heavenly honor, and all of you are running to imitated honors of imitated titles. Therefore, they are making me say to you in such a way that those who follow their egoistic demands are on the levels of jungle animals. If you are asking for honor that will be for you from pre-Eternal up to Eternal, you must ask for heavenly honors, but that will never reach you until you are following one heavenly personality, heavenly beings, messengers and their real followers. If you are asking for honor, follow them. If you are asking the honor of this world, your honor is on the level of jungle animals.
O Salafi `ulamas! Marhaban. Kayfa haalukum al-yawm, How are you today? Are you happy now? Do you think we are speaking wrong? You can't say this. Don't be angry. All prophets were coming for what? You are saying, "We are `ulamas." The Lord of Heavens created Mankind for what? Say! Say to people, to learn and to know, beginning from sultans or presidents or prime ministers, or this one or that one, who is carrying imitated ranks only lasting up to the graveyard and not beyond. Why are you not reminding, "O People! You were not created to run after imitated titles or treasures." Why are they imitated? Because you are going to leave them when you leave this life; you are leaving your treasures and going only with your white burial shrouds. Why are you not saying this matter also every Jumu`ah? Is it not written in the Holy Qur'an? How are you reciting the Holy Qur'an? How are you reciting the story of Qaroon? Why are you not saying to kings and presidents about Qaroon's treasures and that his name is mentioned in the Holy Qur'an? Why are you not reminding people?
Every Jumu`ah you must say, even daily you must say to people, wa dhakkir, remind of the holy command of the Lord of Heavens. You must remind people what is good for them and what is cheating them. As another goal that daily they are shooting artillery shells at you, why are you not declaring daily to people? Say! If not saying, be in fear from the Lord of Heavens, Who will ask you, "Why were you not teaching My servants what is reality, and which thing their Lord was asking from them?"
O `ulamas, doctors of Shari`ah, `ulamas of Azhar ash-Shareef, and Salaaf as-Saalih! You are making dunya on your heads and Salaaf as-Saalih were putting the Earth under their feet! How are you claiming, "We are Salaaf as-Saalih `ulamas." May Allah forgive us.
I am sorry to say such things, but it is a heavenly order that I must say, and I am addressing to my ego first. Anyone who is interested may accept and follow it, and he may take benefit here and Hereafter. May Allah forgive us.
It is written from Heavens that they are attending, and the stations of attenders are VIP stations, while others' are animals' stations. They may choose to attend these gatherings or not, it doesn't matter.
(Mawlana Shaykh prays two rakaats Salaat ash-Shukr.)
