Plan not for dunya but for akhira - Shaykh Hisham Kabbani


Days are passing. We are passing. Planning is for akhira, not for dunya. Today people plan for year 2020. Who knows we will live that long. We will be leaving dunya at anytime. People must remember that death exists. A sick person thinks about akhira more than when he is not sick. Be grateful that we have good health. So we should be thinking about akhira more than a sick person.  Dunya is passing. We are passing. I looked at the clock when I arrived and it was 9.00, it's 9.30 now, so we have passed 30 minutes. It's gone.

O Allah, protect us. We live in a society who only thinks about happiness and pleasure. Some people make Allah happy. Some people make syaitan happy. There are Muslims today who take drugs such as ecstacy. Awliya Allah they are in ecstacy when they remember the Lord. Prophet s.a.w said anything that harms the body must be eliminated. You canot say, I pray but I also take drugs. Corrupted male is for corrupted female. Corrupted female is for corrupted male. We should try not to be corrupted. You need to struggle against your ego. Mawlana Shaykh Nazim keeps saying 'I am nothing'. What about us?

If a Muslim see good, it is good for Allah. O Muslims, be careful, time is passing. We are nothing. You need to choose a good guide, not one who halucinates, claiming to see or hear things. A guide must carry a murid's responsibilites on his shoulder. Awliya Allah are capable of changing things but they are not granted permission save when the time comes when there will be too much ignorance. Many people are ignorant but they do not know that they are ignorant. Allah and the Prophet s.a.w will see your amal. We are losing days from our lives. We will come to reach death. Wherever there is a gathering for zikr, go! Zikr groups should unite, come to the majlis for the sake of Allah and Rasulullah s.a.w.

In akhira, one who attends majlis zikr and one who does not attend, both will be brought to face Allah s.w.t.

Wallahu a'lam.
