An Order to Be Happy

AlhamduliLlah with Allah’s ﷻ will, insha’Allah He ﷻ is supporting us for this visit and travel. We ask from Allah ﷻ support, from Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam Madad and from Mashayikh Madad insha’Allah.

We are happy. We must be all the time happy because this is an order from Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:

قُلْ بِفَضْلِ اللَّهِ وَبِرَحْمَتِهِ فَبِذَٰلِكَ فَلْيَفْرَحُوا هُوَ خَيْرٌ مِّمَّا يَجْمَعُونَ ’,

Qul bifaḍli Llahi wa biraḥmatihi fabidhālika falyafraḥū huwa khayrun mimmā yajma‘ūn’, ‘Say, “In the bounty of Allah and in His mercy – in that let them rejoice”; that is better than what they accumulate.’ (Qur’ān 10:58). This is the order of Allah ﷻ. You must be happy. You have what Allah ﷻ gave you which is better than what they are collecting. They are collecting from people. They thought it’s good for themselves. The best and what’s better is what Allah ﷻ gave us. The believer, Mu’min and Mu’minah, who believe in Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla are from Muslimin. All believers are from Muslimin. Believers are Mu’minin insha’Allah. They have the most precious thing from Allah ﷻ.

For this, the order is: you must be happy. Dunya people say “Be happy, don’t worry.” But they are forgetting. They must not be happy, they must be worried. Dunya people are those who are not remembering their Lord, their Creator, who gives them everything. They must not forget this. If they forget this, they must be unhappy; and it is like this. Who is going away from Allah ﷻ, Allah ﷻ makes him miserable and unhappy. But who is with Allah ﷻ, Allah ﷻ is happy with him. And He ﷻ said, “Be happy. Don’t be sad. Don’t be unhappy.”

Because our purpose of life is to follow, to know what or where you are coming from to where you are going. If you know the address, you will be happy and safe. You reach your destination. And our destination is the door of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla, the door of Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. This is our destination. If you follow and reach this, don’t worry, be happy now. But if you don’t reach it, that time you are in big trouble and there will be a big problem for you. You lose yourself. You don’t know from where you are coming, to where you are going, what will happen, what you must do, what you must not do. You don’t know anything. You are as thrown in the middle of the desert, no road, no anything. Where will you go? You don’t know. These people who are not knowing and don’t want to know are like this. They are wasting their whole lives in nonsense and bad things. And in the end, they lose everything.

Many people [are saying] a new kind of speech. I think most people are watching movies. And these movies are making people to be the same. What they hear, they are saying and repeating that in their language also. What they are saying is: “He lost his life.” This is most of the time real. Many of the people who die, who pass away lose their lives; many of them, most of them. Without knowing, people are saying this to each other. “This man lost his life. This woman lost her life.” Because their life was a precious thing and they lost their life. But who is on the way of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla, it is wrong to say about him: “He lost his life.” His life is not lost, it was full of rewards, full of Barakah and full of good things. So he didn’t lose it, he still has it and he will be happy with what he had done. He didn’t lose his life in nonsense. He didn’t lose his life in bad things. He didn’t lose his life in sins. He won it AlhamduliLlah.

Everybody must be careful for their lives, for every minute not to pass without a good thing. To keep it, not to lose it. To keep each minute and each second for Akhirah, for your real life. If you lose here, after that you’ll say, “Where is the good of my life?” Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla will say, “We gave you the most precious thing and you lost it.” “What will we do!” You blame yourself.

But others who had done good things will find these good things in the beginning, from the grave. Because in the grave, where people are going after dying – they will put them in the grave which is a dark, narrow and terrible place. Once in old times, there was one funeral, Janazah. One man died and his family was crying after him. “Oh our father! We are sorry for you! You will be in a dark place. There will be no food for you. No blanket. A cold place. A dark place. No roof for you.” They were crying like this. And there was Juh’a, a funny one whom they make jokes about in Arab countries like Nasrettin Hoca. He said to his father, “Oh my father! These people are talking about our house!” [Mawlana laughs] His house is all darkness, no heat, no food and nothing. He thought they were talking about their house. The grave is like this.

When a Mu’min goes there, he becomes afraid from this terrible place. And when the Mala‘ika (angels) come, he becomes more afraid [of questioning]. This is a Hadith of Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. So suddenly he will see one good looking young man coming and lighting the whole grave, it all becomes a green light. Then, angels ask him about what he was doing. After that they leave him. This young man helps him to answer. He says, “Who are you? From where did you come?” He [The young man] says, “I am your good deeds. I am here to protect you, to help you.” Our good deeds are of help for us beginning from the grave until forever, until Qiyamah, until paradise. All of this will help you. This is your good deeds. You didn’t lose your life or lose this good friend. It is a real friend. Because a friend of this world, most of them, are for enjoying themselves. For looking after their benefit not your benefit. When something happens, they run away. But the real one, like your good deeds, is a real friend for you. And the most place you need it is after your death, this good friend. Because nobody can come to you in the grave or in Akhirah, only your good deeds will be with you to save you and to make you happy also insha’Allah.

May Allah ﷻ make us be with good people because good people help each other as good deeds help us. They say we are now in Canada, but Canada or not Canada, the whole world is now under the control of shaytan. So whether you are here or there, the shaytan is more easy to reach you everywhere now, more easy to make you do bad things. May Allah ﷻ keep us safe from him. May Allah ﷻ send us Sahibu z-Zaman, Sayyidina Al-Mahdī ‘alayhi s-salam. Only with his help we can survive. And insha’Allah he is helping all human beings. He will be a helper for all human beings who are following and are with him insha’Allah. Insha’Allah may Allah ﷻ send him soon. Because everywhere in the world is in a terrible situation. And day by day it’s becoming worse and worse. May Allah ﷻ send Sayyidina Al-Mahdī ‘alayhi s-salam insha’Allah. Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.

Allāh Allāh, Allāh Allāh, Allāh Allāh, Aziz Allāh.

Allāh Allāh, Allāh Allāh, Allāh Allāh, Karim Allāh.

Allāh Allāh, Allāh Allāh, Allāh Allāh, Subhan Allāh.

You are Subhan, You are Sultan Ya Allah. Al-Fatiha.
