Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اصْبِرُوا وَصَابِرُوا وَرَابِطُوا وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ
(Qur’ān 03:200). ‘Yā ayyuhā lladhīna amanū asbirū wa ṣābirū wa rābiṭū wa t-taqū Llāhu la’allakumu tuflihūn’, ‘O you who have believed, be patient and endure and remain stationed and fear Allah that you may be successful.’
Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla says, “Be steadfast and patient, and you will be in gain.” Since the beginning, since ‘Adam ‘alayhi s-salam until now, what mankind must do is the order of Allah ﷻ. Be steadfast on the right way, on the way of Haqq/truth so that your end is good. Do not go astray. Do not let anyone mislead you from the way, says Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla.
Staying on this way requires patience. Most of the impatient people don’t have a good end, because they forget the order of Allah ﷻ, they forget Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. They think they will be in gain if they choose the easy way. They will not earn anything. No one will remain in this world eventually. Everyone coming goes away. Everyone born dies.
Therefore, be steadfast on the right way. This is the way of Prophets, the way of Awliya’ and Shaheeds, the way of Ahlu l-Bayt, the way of Sahabah. This way is a beautiful way, and those people are beautiful people. The Barakah of those people lasts forever. They say forever for useless people now. But may we not be together with those whom they say forever for. May Allah ﷻ protect us. May we be forever with those beautiful people.
Perhaps, you go after people who you think are better in this world. But it is not good to go after them in Akhirah. If you want to follow, the people who will lead you to eternal happiness are the patient people, people who are steadfast on the right way. May Allah ﷻ let us be together with them. Prophets, Awliya’, Sahabah, Ahlu l-Bayt, especially Sayyidina Hussain and Shaheeds who were with him were steadfast and reached the highest ranks. They were steadfast and their ranks are on the highest levels forever. Those who were impatient and went after Dunya are forgotten. Being together with them in Akhirah is a loss, the biggest loss.
May Allah ﷻ let us be with the good ones. May Allah ﷻ help us so that we don’t obey our egos, and we be steadfast and patient. May we be steadfast not with the tests of Allah ﷻ but with His ﷻ beneficence insha’Allah. We are not servants of tests. Their tests were big. They were patient and were raised. We don’t have that. And we don’t claim to have it. May Allah ﷻ help us. May we be steadfast insha’Allah, with His ﷻ beneficence insha’Allah.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
There are recited Qur’an Khatms, Ayat and Surahs, Tasbihat, Tahlilat and Salawat. Our brothers have recited them from all over the world. We gift them here today firstly to our Holy Prophet ﷺ, his ﷺ Ahlu l-Bayt and Sahabah, the souls of all Anbiya, Awliya’, Asfiya, especially the Shuhada’ of Karbala, Sayyidina Hussain and the Shaheeds who were with him, the souls of all our late relatives, the souls of Mashayikh, the souls of Mu’mins and Mu’minahs. For goodness to come and evil to be gone. With the intention to be neighbors with them on the Day of Judgement, with the intention of protection from all kinds of evil, sins and badness in this world, may it be the means for goodness. Li-Llahi Ta’ala l-Fatiha.
