Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:
إِنَّمَا يَعْمُرُ مَسَٰجِدَ ٱللَّهِ مَنْ ءَامَنَ بِٱللَّهِ وَٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلْءَاخِرِ
(Qur’ān 09:18). ‘Innamā Ya`muru Masājida Allāhi Man ‘Āmana Billāhi Wa Al-Yawmi Al-‘Ākhir’, ‘The mosques of Allah are only to be maintained by those who believe in Allah and the Last Day.’ Ṣadaqa Llāhu l-‘Aẓīm. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is praising people who are building mosques, Masjid, Jami’. These people believe in Allah ﷻ and the next life, He ﷻ said. Those who believe in this, Mu’min and Muslim, wherever they are going they are building a mosque to be light for people. Wherever they are going, they are light for people to come to Islam and for Muslims to keep their faith in this area. It is a very important thing.
And it’s important to be, as Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam says, all places for Iman, not only Islam but Iman. It’s more important. Because who built this, built it by their Iman, their love for Islam. They are sincere Muslims. They are building by their efforts, not by bringing from outside, as many of these people are claiming. If they do so, it will not be good. The important thing is if you build this for the love of Allah ﷻ, for the sake of Allah ﷻ, Allah ﷻ gives you a palace in Paradise and in Dunya also you’ll be more happy and more safe. This is a place for worshipping Allah ﷻ, defending the truth, saying the truth for people: for believers or nonbelievers.
The first thing when our ancestors were going to some place, they were making a mosque, making a place for praying. They were even buying or sometimes people giving them. But most of them were building. And when they are building this, the first thing they were doing was building a place for Wudu’ (ablution), building a washroom. They were building a mosque with cleanliness. Not only to be clean but they also wanted who were building the mosque to be in ablution, in Wudu’. They must be in Wudu’ to build the mosque. For this, first before the mosque, they make a bathroom, a washroom, they make a place for Wudu’. Old Mu’mins, old believers have good thinking and good attributes. They were looking after everything, not wanting to miss anything from the rewards of Allah ﷻ and blessings of Allah ﷻ for the sake of Allah ﷻ.
These were the people of old times whom we are following. We are following these people. Since Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam until now, we have been following this. And after that, people who are claiming they are Islam are bringing money from the government and making a mosque by themselves. And who builds the mosque doesn’t know what he drank or if he was unclean. This is not important for them. And after that, they say, “These people are not in the right way. They are making Bid’ah, they are making Shirk.” I don’t know what we will say to these people. But unfortunately, many people are cheated by these people. We see many people thinking they are right. They are arguing with you, “What are you doing. What is this, what is that.” They don’t know many of the Sunnahs of Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. Even for this, they say that many of them are Shirk and many say Bid’ah. They are ignorant, but people are cheated by them. Because people don’t know anything about Islam. Just when they hear this, they think it is Islam and all these people are in the wrong way. How is it the wrong way when our ancestors: fathers, grand grand grandfathers were all in this way! If they were in the wrong way, there wouldn’t be Islam.
AlhamduliLlah Islam will be. Millions and thousands like these people came and disappeared; not any name or anything for them. Once one wanted to be famous, he came in Hajj time for Zamzam. And to be known, he urinated in Zamzam. People caught him and brought him to the governor. “Why did you do this?” He said, “For my name to be known forever.” For this, this man urinated in Zamzam but nobody knew him. They heard his story but nobody knows his name. They only remember this bad story. And this is an example for people who are the whole time urinating in Islam, in our belief, belief of people. They are destroying belief.
But AlhamduliLlah we see many mosques built and owned by people who love Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam, love Sahabah, love the four Khalifahs: Abu Bakr, Omar, Othman and Ali radiya Llahu ‘anhum, love Ahlu l-Bayt and love Sahabah also. There are many many of these mosques everywhere. Today we were also in a big mosque in Mississauga called Riyadu l-Jannah. They said from thirteen years or maybe fourteen years, they made the mosque. AlhamduliLlah the people of this mosque are Ahlu s-Sunnah wal Jama’ah, real believers, real Mu’mins. AlhamduliLlah all the time and today, they pray Jum’ah and many people are coming.
So these people who don’t believe in ‘Awliya and don’t believe in Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam will be finished. So don’t be anxious. Our way is to the right way, to Jannah insha’Allah; straight to Jannah. “مَنْ شَذَّ شُذَّ فِي النَّارِ أبدًا”, “He who is separate [from the community] will be separated in hell forever.” [Hadith]. Who goes out from the way will be going to Jahannam, to fire. Who is on the straight way, don’t be afraid, you will go as fast as you can. You’ll go. Don’t worry. Insha’Allah you are in Jannah.
AlhamduliLlah today we are here also. They said it’s a small mosque and it won’t fit too much people. But AlhamduliLlah maybe more than a hundred people are here and still there is place. May Allah ﷻ make them make more and more insha’Allah. Everywhere there must be mosques insha’Allah. Mawlana Sheikh was saying that we also need small mosques because it’s a place to teach and to come as Jama’ah. Maybe if you want to go to a big mosque, it is difficult to go from your house. But like this, in every small town you can find some mosque and you can go once or twice for Jama’ah or more, as much as you can. We are thanking Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla for what He ﷻ gives us. Even if we are living in a difficult place and around all are nonbelievers, in a foreign country but this here is like an oasis. With the blessing of Allah ﷻ and mercy of Allah ﷻ for believers, when they come here, Allah ﷻ by His ﷻ blessing gives them mercy and gives them Rahmah insha’Allah. May Allah ﷻ bless you.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
