Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:
إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَأْمُرُكُمْ أَن تُؤَدُّوا الْأَمَانَاتِ إِلَىٰ أَهْلِهَا وَإِذَا حَكَمْتُم بَيْنَ النَّاسِ أَن تَحْكُمُوا بِالْعَدْلِ
(Qur’ān 04:58). ‘Inna Allāha Ya’murukum ‘An Tu’uaddū Al-‘Amānāti ‘Ilá ‘Ahlihā Wa ‘Idhā Ĥakamtum Bayna An-Nāsi ‘An Taĥkumū Bil-`Adl’, ‘Indeed, Allah commands you to render trusts to whom they are due and when you judge between people to judge with justice.’ Ṣadaqa Llāhu l-‘Aẓīm.
The main thing in every job is to be competent. People are not accountable when they are babies or children. But as they grow up, responsibility is put on people’s shoulders. There are things they must do. They must always improve themselves. They must advance further.
Our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam says if two days of a believer are alike, he is at loss. He must always be better. He must be good in worship and in all kinds of things. He must do justice to the trust given by Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla brought it to this world for you. So you must follow His ﷻ way and guard His ﷻ trust.
Each job is like this. As we are living in the end of times, the trust is in the hands of incompetent people. They have ruined everything, because people have chosen what is easy for their egos. They choose not the difficult way to make themselves better but the easy way. They don’t pray, they don’t fast, they don’t do anything. “We get tired of praying”. But when it comes to horrible places, they run there. They don’t pray. They don’t fast as it is difficult for them. If you talk about Zakat, they say “It is unnecessary. Why would I give it?” Their egos don’t want.
Therefore, as people don’t do justice to these trusts, Allah ﷻ gave them people like themselves. Everywhere is full of incompetent people. If there is work to be done, everywhere is full of incompetent people who don’t do their job properly. It is difficult to find competent people. It is difficult to find reliable people.
This is something disliked by Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla created people for them to be competent. He ﷻ gave them opportunities. If they don’t obey their egos, they can do it. But as they obey their egos, they cannot do it. They don’t want to tire themselves. They are fond of their comfort. They are fond of their pleasure and enjoyment. They don’t think about anything else. “How should I satisfy myself? How should I make myself happy?” Everything is about them, whereas when they are competent, they bring benefit to others as well.
It is said, ‘There are many people but no one who does the job.’ This is something Allah ﷻ doesn’t like. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla and our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam love the person who works and who knows himself. And Tariqahs are for educating people, for teaching all kinds of competence to do a good job. It is for following the way of our Holy Prophet ﷺ. Therefore, shaytan doesn’t like them. Their work makes him angry.
Without Tariqah, people follow their egos and don’t do otherwise. A person who doesn’t follow the way of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is not a competent person. If the whole world belongs to him, he will ruin it completely. May Allah ﷻ protect us all. May Allah ﷻ let us come across competent people insha’Allah. May Allah ﷻ protect us from people who don’t know themselves and who don’t know their job.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
There are recited Qur’an Khatms. There are many Khatms recited by our brothers from all over the world, Shukr to Allah ﷻ. Yasin, Tabarakah, Surahs, Ayat, Tasbihat, Salawat; we gift everything recited firstly to our Holy Prophet ﷺ, his Ahlu l-Bayt and Sahabah, the souls of all Anbiya, Asfiya and Mashayikh, souls of our late relatives. With the intention for goodness to come and evil to be gone, with the intention of attaining strength of Iman.
Li-Llahi Ta’ala l-Fatiha.
