Ya Rabbee. Madad, Ya Sayyidee. 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! 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 and we are saying A`oodhubillahi minash-Shaytaani'r-rajeem. Shaytan is thinking that no one can be more powerful than him and I am saying, it is the 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`oodhubillahi minash-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! As-salaamu`alaykum! How are you today? Collecting too much money? Yes. Everyone is 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)!
O People! If there was a value of treasures in this world, Allah Almighty is able 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. You will find that very few people who are not going to prefer rains of pearls, diamonds, rubies, emeralds and so many kinds of precious stones. I don't think anyone who were to be there in that place (where there is rain of precious stones), who will not run to take something from it. Very, very, very few ones. Ask yourself, don't say to anyone else but you try yourself. Say, "Shaykh Qurani, what would you do if it were to rain from heavens, emeralds, pearls and diamonds?" What do you think? Say truthfully! 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 at least one diamond or one pearl? What do you think?
Our egos are making us say, "If it is raining jewels, how can I 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 so 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! (And his wife answers) "O big Shaytan, you are Shaytan! Why didn't you carry for 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 could send 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.
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-saabireenBe 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. (Qur'an 2:155)
You know that ayatu'l-kareema? Wala-nabluwanakum bi shay. Allahu Akbar! Allah Almighty is saying, "I am never leaving My servants, I am testing them." Tajruba, test them all, they are mukallaf, responsible adults. Wala-nabluwanakum bi shay "I am not leaving". I am going to try everyone at every level with so many things with different tests."
Do you understand, Salafi `ulamas? Why are you not saying to people and the rest of `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 kitab of Allah is for them too. 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 comes around and saying, "What are you doing here?""Have you tasted some of it?"
"I am the guardian of this hive."
"I am the guardian of this hive."
"It is forbidden for me to taste."
“Why? Yes, if you do not wish to eat, at least 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 will never leave him until he cheats him or put a trap for him and using its countless tricks, saying, "Put a little bit (from that trust)." He will not be aware that it is from Shaytan and when he looks, he sees Shaytan takes it and nothing happened, so he also takes (from what is forbidden).
O People! O Salafi `ulamas! I have never heard from Salafi `ulamas or other doctors of Shari`ah or `ulamas from al-Azhar saying 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? Address and declare to people! Did you ever say, "O Mankind, you were a generation of Paradise?" Is it true? We are nasl, generation of Paradise, and how did it happen, we were thrown out of Paradise? Why are you not making clear what happened to Adam and Eve? Why are you not speaking of their generation?
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 had created by His divinely hands.
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 me an answer. Say, is there a Hand for Allah jalla jalaaluh? But you are not 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 the skies rains and giving countless pleasures to Earth? And you, mankind, eat and get endless pleasures. 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). How is He giving? Salafi `ulamas, say! Say the reality because some people are asking! And people, from beginning up to the 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 to Earth, full with troubles, 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. 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, do 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. (Qur'an 7:19)
Ayatul-kareema. 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."
Yes, they are making me speak on a hive of bees! Shaytan coming, saying, as it comes, 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 the secret knowledge!" That is a 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 you put it here (Mawlana Shaykh points to mouth), that rain from Divinely Existence that was coming on them gets cut off immediately and they stand naked!
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. But the `ulamas are not saying such things. I am nothing but they are making me address all people from east to west, from book-given people (ahlul kitab) and those who 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 (spiritual) bombardment. Heavy (spiritual) bombardment coming after me. O people, look, listen and accept or heavy bombardment coming (to take away dirtiness). May Allah forgive us for the sake of the most honored one, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)!Al-Fatihah.
Tawbah yaa Rabbee, tawbah yaa Rabbee, tawbah yaa Rabbee.
