Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:


Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla created us in the best shape, Shukr to Allah ﷻ. Only believers appreciate this. Non-believers are fed up with their lives. They don’t like their lives. It is because they don’t know why they were created. As they don’t know their Creator, their lives are bad and their end is bad. Their Akhirah will also be bad. Believers should make Shukr to Allah ﷻ and be happy. They should be at ease, for He ﷻ created them in such a shape.

There are Muslim creatures and children are certainly [born] Muslim. Their families change them later. However, there are those who became Muslim later. They have attained a great blessing. An actual Muslim must appreciate it so that Allah ﷻ is pleased with him. When Allah ﷻ is pleased with someone, all his work is successful. His life is good, and his Akhirah will be good. But those who don’t recognize Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla and try to imitate others, people who don’t count the favors that Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla gives us and don’t accept them may go without Iman like the rest. May Allah ﷻ protect us.

Those who are born Muslim but follow others’ words and favor others will be just like them when they later pass away to Akhirah. Don’t think that you will be saved by saying, “I am this and that”. The saved ones will be those who are on the way of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla and who accept Allah ﷻ. The rest have no benefit in this world, and they have a great loss in Akhirah.

Allah ﷻ loves the grateful ones. He ﷻ loves the appreciative ones. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla loves them and people are usually also like that. If a person appreciates it when you give him something, you will be happy too. But if he says “What is this!” and doesn’t accept it, certainly, you won’t give him anything again. You will not engage with him.

Therefore, we must make Shukr to Allah ﷻ. We must never forget this blessing. We must always keep it in our mind and heart. We should always have the Dhikr of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla in our hearts. We should have the love of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla, the love of our Holy Prophet ﷺ and the love of Awliya in our hearts so that our hearts are not filled with other things.

When the heart is filled with other things, it is useless. That has no benefit. If you put the whole world in your heart, that will bring no benefit. You must put the love of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla and the love of our Holy Prophet ﷺ in your heart so that you have benefit. May Allah ﷻ give that love to our hearts. May He ﷻ give Iman and light to our hearts insha’Allah.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
