Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:
وَقُلِ الْحَقُّ مِن رَّبِّكُمْ ۖ فَمَن شَاءَ فَلْيُؤْمِن وَمَن شَاءَ فَلْيَكْفُرْ
(Qur’ān 18:29). ‘Wa Quli Al-Ĥaqqu Min Rabbikum, Faman Shā’a Falyu’umin Wa Man Shā’a Falyakfur’, ‘And say, “The truth is from your Lord, so whoever wills – let him believe; and whoever wills – let him disbelieve”.’ Sadaqa Llāhu l-‘Aẓīm. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is saying to our Holy Prophet ﷺ, “Speak the words of truth. Whoever wants may believe and whoever wants may remain in Kufr.”
You must speak the truth. This is the way of our Holy Prophet ﷺ and the way of Prophets from the beginning. It is necessary to tell people about the truth. We must describe the true and beautiful way to them. Whoever is meant will go on this way. Whoever is not meant will leave this way.
The second way is the way of Kafirs which leads to Kufr. It is the way of those who don’t recognize Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. Their way is to hell, nowhere else. It is either to paradise or to hell. Therefore, may we be with the Haqq (truth) insha’Allah.
Whoever wants paradise must accept the truth. He must go on its way. The truth is clear. But when people follow their egos, they are not on the way of truth. Because the ego always joins the way which is easy or is liked by it, whereas it is neither easy, nor it will like it. The further someone goes, the deeper he drowns in it. The further he goes, the more he falls in darkness. There will be hardship and all kinds of things.
They say when someone follows a bad person, he can’t get out of troubles. There are many proverbs some of which are cruel and some of which are softer. There are many proverbs that describe the condition of the person who goes after a bad friend. No need to tell them in this assembly. But what’s important is the holy word of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla He ﷻ says to us in Qur’an ‘Azimu sh-Shan, “وَمَن شَاءَ فَلْيَكْفُرْ ۚ إِنَّا أَعْتَدْنَا لِلظَّالِمِينَ نَارًا أَحَاطَ بِهِمْ سُرَادِقُهَا”, “Wa Man Shā’a Falyakfur, ‘Innā ‘A`tadnā Lilžžālimīna Nārāan ‘Aĥāţa Bihim Surādiquhā”, “And whoever wills – let him disbelieve.” Indeed, We have prepared for the wrongdoers a fire whose walls will surround them.” (Qur’ān 18:29) – “We sent such a fire to them that it has covered everything.” And only by returning to the way of truth that there is salvation. Otherwise, it is impossible. There is still time. There is time to return to the way of truth. Whoever is not on the way of truth lives in vain and brings harm to others. May Allah ﷻ give them guidance insha’Allah. May people see the truth.
Shukr to Allah ﷻ, what our Holy Prophet ﷺ and all Prophets wish is goodness to people and their salvation. They don’t wish for anything else. But people harm them and go against them. Prophets say in Qur’an ‘Azimu sh-Shan, “We don’t ask for any payment. The only thing we ask for and our happiness is people reaching guidance. This is our greatest wish.” Insha’Allah Mu’mins should think the same way. We don’t wish badness to people. However, those who leave the way and go against Allah ﷻ will see their own harm. May Allah ﷻ protect us. May Allah ﷻ give guidance insha’Allah.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
