Atheism Is Not Cleverness

Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:
أَفَحَسِبْتُمْ أَنَّمَا خَلَقْنَاكُمْ عَبَثًا وَأَنَّكُمْ إِلَيْنَا لَا تُرْجَعُونَ
(Qur’ān 23:115). ‘Afaĥasibtum ‘Annamā Khalaqnākum `Abathāan Wa ‘Annakum ‘Ilaynā Lā Turja`ūn’, ‘Then did you think that We created you uselessly and that to Us you would not be returned?’ Ṣadaqa Llāhu l-‘Aẓīm. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is saying in Qur’an ‘Azimu sh-Shan, “Did we create you for nothing?”

There are silly people now who say creation is something that happened by coincidence and confuse other people. Those with weak Iman lose their Iman. Their Iman is gone. They don’t know what to do and whom to believe. And then they lead many people to Kufr. They lead others to denying the Creator. Every time they let someone lose his faith, they will get their punishment for each of them.

Atheism is not a skill. It is not cleverness. It is never a good thing, because real life is as Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla says, “You will return to us”. You are ranting and raving here. But there, you will be punished, and there is no coming back from it. As much as the sins Mu’mins who believe in Allah ﷻ commit, they will be cleaned in hell and then go to paradise. But people in Kufr will stay in hell forever. There is no salvation for them.

These people who newly came out have found comfort and are confused on what to do. “Should I follow this one, or should I follow that one?” Whereas, you have found the best way. Allah ﷻ has granted it to you. No need to look for something else. Be steadfast on this way. Life is short anyway. Leave this life with belief in Allah ﷻ in the end so that there is salvation for you in the real life.

Not everyone has Iman, of course. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla didn’t give it to everyone. So those who are given it must appreciate it. Because when there is comfort, it makes people wild. Comfort is not good. Therefore, our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam says, “اخْشَوْشِنوا فإنَّ النِّعمَ لا تدومُ”, Adapt to a tough life, as favors don’t last. Favors are not there all the time.

Comfort brings wildness to people. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is saying, وَلَوْ بَسَطَ اللَّهُ الرِّزْقَ لِعِبَادِهِ لَبَغَوْا فِي الْأَرْضِ’, ‘Wa Law Basaţa Allāhu Ar-Rizqa Li`ibādihi Labaghaw Fī Al-‘Arđ’, ‘And if Allah had extended [excessively] provision for His servants, they would surely rebel in the earth.’ (Qur’ān 42:27). Ṣadaqa Llāhu l-‘Aẓīm. This is Haqq (true) what He ﷻ says. When people are given comfort, people go wild. This is our condition now. They are bringing up various things. Whereas in old times, people didn’t have the opportunity to think about such things in pursuit of earning a living.

Now there is free time. They have this tool [phones] in their hands, and things are posted from everywhere. They think that is right, and they know the right as wrong. May Allah ﷻ protect us from the evil of these people. They do the biggest evil. Faithlessness and what they call atheism is the biggest evil.

But Shukr to Allah ﷻ, many people are coming to their senses. When those who have been in such a condition for a period of time use their minds, they return to the right way. They see that people who are saying this know nothing. They do it only for their personal interest or as they are cheated by shaytan because of going after shaytan. There are people who leave them and come to the right way. May Allah ﷻ increase such people. May Allah ﷻ give guidance to people.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
