Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:(4:06)
Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
Shukr to Allāh ﷻ, our old traditions are the traditions upon which is the love of our Holy Prophet ﷺ, the love of Islām. All traditions of old people are as such. Everything was for the pleasure of Allāh ﷻ. Therefore, it is our duty to keep on what they did. We shouldn’t let them be forgotten. Who lets them be forgotten has gone astray.
Shukr to Allāh ﷻ, may Allāh ﷻ bless it, it is the third day of ‘Īdu l-Aḍḥā today. An old tradition in Cyprus that Mawlānā Shaykh Nāẓim used to follow is going to the Sulṭān here on the third day of ‘Īd. Who is the Sulṭān? Hala Sulṭān. Hala Sulṭān who is the Sulṭān of ākhirah. They used to visit her on the third day. They take her blessing and ‘Īd is complete then.
Therefore, shukr to Allāh ﷻ for Allāh ﷻ is giving us this chance to follow this blessed tradition. Sometimes we couldn’t go for years. It was closed. We did not go. But nowadays this chance is given to visit her, to visit Awliyā’, ṣaḥābah and Prophets. Barakah and mercy descends on their graves, and mercy comes to those who visit them.
Do not listen to new people. They say visiting graves is wrong. Our Holy Prophet ﷺ used to visit graves. And he ﷺ advised this. There are ḥadīths. It is something that was always done. And that is the work of shayṭān so that people don’t attain this thawāb. He gives waswasa to people and says it is wrong to visit graves and this and that. Where were you? The things done 1,400 years and 100 years ago are on this way. There had been perverts just like always. They didn’t show respect. There were people who didn’t respect our Holy Prophet ﷺ, his ﷺ Ahlu l-Bayt and ṣaḥābah. But they were shaken every time and got scattered like dirt. However they got scattered, they got scattered over Islām.
Therefore, wherever there is ziyārah and maqām, they must be visited to get their blessing. Qur‘ān must be read, and all kinds of favours are given. Their virtue and blessing will come to you in shā’a Llāh. Because we do it for the pleasure of Allāh ﷻ. We don’t worship them. We go to the beloved servants of Allāh ﷻ. The mercy that descends upon them will come to you as well with the permission of Allāh ﷻ.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
