Auzu billahi min-ash sheytanir rajim
La hawla wa la quwwata illa billahil aliyyil azim
Hasbinallah wa ni’mal wakeel
Medet Ya Seyyidi Sultanul Awliya, medet.
We are asking support from our Sheykh to make us to say a couple of words that will benefit us inshaAllah ar-Rahman. If someone takes them and lives according to it then they will win. If not then we do the part that is given to us and blessings are coming with it inshaAllah ar-Rahman. We must renew our faith saying, “Ash-hadu an la ilaha ilallallah wa ash-hadu anna muhammadan abduhu wa rasuluhu sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa alihi wa ashabihi wa sallim.”
124,000 prophets have been sent to this world to show people, to teach them to turn their way from Dunya to Mawla, from the world to Akhirat. When they passed, they left their inheritors in this world and they called to those nations until another prophet came to those nations. Holy Prophet (alayhi salatu wa salam) is the Seal of Prophets. No more prophet is coming until Judgment Day. He also left behind those people who are reminding themselves and the mankind to turn from Dunya to Mawla. The majority of people are always in need of reminder. They have forgotten. They are forgetting that they have not been created for this world. They turned around and fell in love with it and Allah send somebody to them to remind them. If people take that seriously and hold on tightly then they find safety in Dunya and Akhirat. If they are saying, “Well, I know but we are living in Dunya and we have to work.” Of course. We are living in Dunya and we have to work. And at the same time we are living in Dunya to earn our Akhirat, not to work only, but to earn our Akhirat, earn the hereafter life while we are living in Dunya. You cannot earn that in the grave or in the Judgment Day. At least we have to make some work right now through which maybe we will leave some pages open that when we enter to the grave we will still earn higher stations in Akhirat inshaAllah ar-Rahman.
It is so valuable but we are treating it in a very lousy way. We are not treating it properly, this value that Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) has given to us. The value is the Shahadat and with Shahadat the Akhirat is coming, the eternal life is coming with that Shahadat. But while we are living in this world we are treating it very badly. It is so valuable but we are not taking any care of it. The little devices that we have here and there, the little things, the computers, the cameras, the cars, we show more care to those than the Shahadat. You cannot call that one so intelligent who is treating such a valuable thing very carelessly because that has a very big enemy also. Because it’s very valuable, the enemy is running after it to catch it and take it away from us. The enemy is coming to us in so many different forms to steal that Shahadat away from us. They became a big company together. Nafs, Hawa, Sheytan and Dunya. These four are tying us, chaining us. Nafs is one chain holding from the right hand like that. Hawa, the desires, are holding from the left hand, Sheytan is holding from the right foot, tying with that chain and Dunya is holding from the left. We are in chains. We cannot move. And everyone is saying, “I am free. I do as I like.” Mashallah. If you do as you like then don’t die. Why are you dying? Every single day you are running top-speed to die. One day is gone again and we came one more day closer to our death. Don’t speak foolish words saying, “I am free.” What free? If you are free then you should not die. Man is running to find the cure to that. He is not finding and he is not going to. When he is going to through science, when Allah is going to open to them from that ocean a little bit, then they are going to beg to die. That’s what they are trying now.
We are living the last days on this earth. It’s not only man’s life that is finishing but the whole world and all worlds that Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) has created are coming to an end. The Judgment Day, Qiyamat, is coming very close. We are the nation that reached to the end of that era. We are not in the beginning, in Adam alayhi salam’s nation to say, “We still have time. Oh, generations are going to come after us until Judgment Day.” We don’t have too much left. So we should be more careful because we are the last nation on earth and we are very close to the Judgment Day, to Qiyamat. We are keeping ourselves busy everyday with so many other things. The unbelievers keep themselves busy with other foolishness, the believers keep themselves busy with other things and the man who is in the way of Allah keeps himself busy thinking, “This is coming, that is coming, I am preparing for Mahdi and I have to have a nice life afterwards.” Qiymat is coming! Prepare yourself! When the angel of death is reaching to you it’s your Qiyamat.
There are two Qiyamats. One is when the angel of death reaches to man and the second one is for all things, anything that you can think of, you can imagine that is existing in this world, the end is coming to that too. And we are very close. These young people, maybe they are in early ages of their Qiyamat, but the whole mankind today is very close to the big Qiyamat. So we must prepare ourselves. We don’t really need too many people to tell us that that’s the direction the world is going top-speed. If you have a little bit of sense and you put it together then you see it. We are seeing it. Everyday we are watching the news, we are watching the activities in the world, we are watching the activities that are happening around us and activities with our families and with our friends. Everyday we are seeing how fast everything is changing and in top-speed it’s going to its destiny.
We cannot escape from it saying, “It was my destiny.”
Yes, there is a big destiny. Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) drew the plan and everything is moving according to that. But we have to take care in that walk ourselves. We are responsible from what we are preparing for ourselves. We are responsible if we say that we are intelligent people, that we have intelligence. If we don’t have intelligence then we are not responsible. But even the animals know their reason of creation and even the animals are putting curses on today’s people saying, “Man has been created in Ahsani Taqweem and the Lord of the Heavens has created us for their service. We are remembering our Lord and they are not remembering their Lord.” In the old days, at least the general main groups were remembering. Now, only a handful of groups are remembering. It turned around completely. The 20th century’s uncivilization. The 20th and the 21st century’s barbarism. The history books must write saying that they were the people who had been educated with the worldly knowledge so much but they were the worst ignorant ones ever living on earth. The second Jahiliyya Time. We should escape from that. We should not let our names to be written in that book.
The reality is not changing whether they are putting it in the history books or not. The reality is there. The angels are holding the history book and they are putting, “The 21st century: Ignorant man. The worst ones that ever lived on the face of the earth.” The curse is raining. We must escape from that. We must try to escape with every opportunity that Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) is opening for us. Then they will not put our names in that list. And if we are holding tightly in fighting against these four Sharr Corporation, Nafs, Hawa, Sheytan and Dunya, if we are looking and understanding that these are our enemies then we must be careful with these ones. Then the help will reach to us and inshaAllah ar-Rahman we will be able to keep our Shahadat strongly. We will live and we will pass with that Shahadat. That is Marifat. If a man is looking for Marifat, Karamat then that is Marifat. That is Karamat. All the secrets of all Books and all the prophets came to teach man to take that faith that Allah has granted to them, to live according to that faith and to go out from this world with that faith. MashaAllah to those who did and inshaAllah we are asking from our Lord Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) for the sake of those who are most beloved ones in His Divine Presence, we are asking their Shafa’at to reach to us, and for their sake Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) to make us to live and to go out from this world with this Shahadat inshaAllah ar-Rahman.
