Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
Insha’Allah we will make a little Sohbah and after that Dhikr, to make Barakah for our visit insha’Allah.
Our Tariqah is in gathering and Sohbah. The Naqshbandi Tariqah. To be with good people. Anyone coming to listen to advice, Naseeha is a good one. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla blesses him. People of old times were coming from and through long distances to hear Naseeha, to hear the good thing. People now are not interested in such a thing. If there is something which is of no benefit for them, they are going and looking at this, for long distances. They are going far away. But when a good thing is coming, nobody is interested. But there’s no problem.
When this gathering happens, Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla sends – this is from Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam that we heard from Mawlana Sheikh Nazim – He ﷻ sends His ﷻ blessings to the whole country, to the whole city or where they are making this gathering and Sohbah with the intention for the sake of Allah ﷻ. And this blessing is for the whole city. But when in the gathering there isn’t the whole city, this whole blessing comes only for these people who are attending this gathering. So they will be blessed a thousand times more than the normal time.
So this is a good occasion to get blessings, to be in such a gathering, which is only for the sake of Allah ﷻ and for the sake of Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. Allah ﷻ rewards us for this. It is without doing any harm for people, no bad action. We are only gathering for the benefit of human beings, for the benefit of the Ummah and trying to learn something. We are also learning when the Sohbah is coming. Insha’Allah this is coming from Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla, from Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam, from Awliyau’Llah. They are putting and making us to speak.
We are happy to be with people. Now I heard that Mawlana was here in this city, in this country; here in Canada and America. Many people met him and are coming again, from his Barakah, to see this gathering, to see us. We are happy because this is also from the good behavior of Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam: to not forget people who were friends with you father and with your mother. You must look for them, not cut this relationship. You must be visiting them or meeting them. This is from the orders of our Prophet ﷺ.
Every good thing is coming through Prophets. They are teaching people good things. Because the nature of people is not to follow the good thing. They are following – everybody has an ego. The ego takes people to the wrong way. If you follow the ego, the ego never takes you to the good way. We never heard that the ego makes people come to the way, the straight way, to be good people; no. The ego is all the time going to the wrong side. You must every time, bring it to come to the right way. Don’t go out of the way.
For this, Prophets were coming to show people the right way, to show people the good thing, good behavior, good action. To be of benefit for themselves, for other people, for their country, for human beings. This is the intention of Prophets which are traveling or going through their nation telling them, “This is good. That is not good.” And most of the times, they were not accepted and they were given a bad thing, a bad time, pressuring them, oppressing them, not being happy with them. But their mission is to show people the right and good thing.
Because Prophets are coming – For each nation, Allah ﷻ sent a Prophet. Everywhere on this earth, there was a Prophet. Even some days ago, some were asking me if there was a Prophet in America. Of course. Here also; there was a nation living here. And in Qur’an it is said, “We sent for each nation a Prophet.” (Qur’an 16:36) But what happened after the Prophets? People were [first] happy with them. But after 50 years or 60 years, not more than 100 years, people changed what they learnt. They didn’t accept and began to worship other things; to worship stones, to worship wood, worship I don’t know what. Whatever they found, they worshipped because they are following what the ego and shaytan teaches them.
As Sayyidina Musa ‘alayhi s-salam, after many miracles happened for his nation. [As when] they came running away from Pharaoh through a big sea. The sea divided into 12 paths for the 12 tribes in the water. Each one in one path with [walls] reaching until the surface. And they can see each other through [windows in] the water. They went safely to Sinai. And Pharoah and his army sank in the sea. After this, they came to the other side and asked for water from Musa ‘alayhi s-salam. He hit the rock by his stick and came 12 fountains of water. Each tribe drank from this water. Many miracles happened to them, to show them. Then, he went to Tur Sinai, where Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla was addressing him. And he stayed there for 40 days. When he came back, they were worshipping idol of cow. They made a golden cow and they were worshipping it. This is the attribute of human beings. They quickly forget what’s good and go after badness. All of these miracles happened, maybe four months or three months, and all of them saw them. When Musa ‘alayhi s-salam went away for 40 days, they were worshipping this idol of cow.
For this, each nation had a Prophet. But quickly after the Prophet, shaytan made people worship another thing; not worshipping Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. So our ego is dangerous. Don’t say, “Why do we need a Prophet? Why do we need somebody to teach us what we need? We can only follow what we learn from books. We also don’t want everything from books; What our ego likes we can take, the other we don’t want.” When you do this, you will be destroying human beings. As the nature of earth is destroyed, and many things are finished, many things are not here; they will also finish humankind with their stupid ideas and stupid teachings.
May Allah ﷻ keep us safe. Everywhere in this Dunya now there is a very bad war between right and wrong. Many people think the wrong is right; most people think that. But the right is right and it will appear. There is a saying, “You cannot cover the sun with mud.” It cannot be. The Haqq will appear sooner or later. May Allah ﷻ keep us safe and keep our children safe from this big Fitnah insha’Allah.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
