Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
“أَجَلُّ الْكَرَامَاتِ دَوَامُ التَّوْفِيقِ”,
“Ajallu l-karāmāt dawāmu t-tawfīq”. If you want a Karāmāh, being steadfast on this way is from the best Karāmāt. When the way is good, there are many things that try to take you out of it. Shaytan, Nafs (ego), Hawa (desire), Dunyā – these are the enemies of people. They certainly strive to take people out of the way. It doesn’t serve their purpose when you are on the way. They want to mislead you. If you want a Karāmāh, when you are steadfast on the way, know that Allah ﷻ has given you such a beautiful state that you have the Karāmāh of Awliya.
Our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam says, “أَحَبُّ الأعمالِ إلى اللهِ أدْومُها وإن قَلَّ”, “A’habbu l-‘aa’mali ila Allah ‘adwamuha wa-in qalla”, “The acts most pleasing to God are those which are done most continuously, even if they amount to little.” The best thing and worship that you do is the continuous one, even if little. There are some people who think they become Awliya all of a sudden and start doing things they are not capable of. They do it for a week or two weeks. And within 1-2 months nothing remains with them; they can’t do it. Whereas if they do little by little but continuously, that is enough for them.
Sometimes people do things they cannot do. They quit it completely then and don’t do it at all. But when they do it little by little, it will be continuous and last until they die. When they die, Thawab will be written for them. Therefore, don’t do things you cannot keep up. It is the same with worldly things. We see some people, we see youngsters who spend 3-5 hours a day working out. If you cannot do this thing throughout your life, do a little, as much as you can do.
Continuity is the accepted thing both for Dunyā and Ākhirah. It is the good and advised thing. It is the most important thing, because people cannot do everything. Every person has a skill and capacity, things he can do and things he cannot do. Therefore, when you undergo something you cannot do and cannot maintain it throughout your life, it will not have any benefit. It will be harmful.
Therefore, mankind should do what they are capable of doing continuously.
Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm
: “لَا يُكَلِّفُ اللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا”,
‘La yukallifu Llahu nafsan illa wus’aha’, ‘Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity.’ (Qur’ān 02:286). It is said in Ayati Sharifah, Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla does not burden a man more than he can carry. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla has given him only as much as he can handle. He ﷻ knows how much people are capable of doing. May Allah ﷻ not let us deal with things we cannot do. May we not take upon ourselves a burden that we cannot carry insha’Allah. May Allah ﷻ give us strength, and may it be continuous insha’Allah. May it be continuous so that we don’t leave it and get disappointed insha’Allah. May Allah ﷻ protect us all.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
Today is Jum’ah. There are recited Qur’an Khatms, Khatm Sharif, Yasin, Surahs and Ayat, Tasbihat and Tahlilat. There are recited Salawat Sharifah on our Holy Prophet ﷺ and Dala’il Al-Khayrat. We gift everything recited for the pleasure of Allah ﷻ and these beautiful things that want to be gifted at this hour, firstly to our Holy Prophet ﷺ, his Ahlu l-Bayt and Sahabah, the souls of all Anbiya, Asfiya, Mashayikh, the souls of all our late relatives, especially our Shaykh Mawlana Shaykh Nazim, Hala Sultan and Hajjah Anne, the souls of all our late relatives. For goodness to come and evil to be gone, for the pleasure of Allah ﷻ. Li-Llahi Ta’ala l-Fatiha.
