Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here(6:37):
Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
The holy religion of Islām has come for mankind. It has come to glorify mankind, to honor people. Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla put mankind among the highest creatures. He ﷻ gave that honor to them. Who walks on His ﷻ way, who obeys His ﷻ orders reaches the highest rank.
Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm: ‘وَلَقَدْ كَرَّمْنَا بَنِي آدَمَ’, ‘Wa Laqad Karramnā Banī ‘Ādam, ‘And We have certainly honored the children of Adam.’ (Qur’ān 17:70). “We have honored sons of ’Ādam. We have favoured them. We have given them all kinds of opportunities”, says Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla. If they walk on this way, they will be in profit. But if they don’t do this, if they go another way, there is suffering and degrading. There is evil on other way.
When the rights and privileges of mankind in Islām were told during the time of our Holy Prophet ﷺ, many people did not accept them. Because they were communities who killed and did evil to each other. They were unfair. They were living in dark times. But they got raised with the light of our Holy Prophet ﷺ. Wherever they went, as there was goodness for people, they accepted the religion of Islām. As they followed the way of Islām they got raised and honored. When they left it, they became degraded. They were at loss. They lost everything; their dignity and their honor when they left the way of Allāh ﷻ. Who were on the way of Allāh ﷻ won. Who were not on the way of Allāh ﷻ lost.
Therefore, we must know the greatness of Islām. There is no benefit in joining other ways. There is only harm. And there is a lot of harm, no benefit. In Islām, there are favours for mankind both alive and dead. Even people killed at war are left there with respect. But those who are not Muslim, when Muslim or any other enemy dies, they do all kinds of things to him. They treat him badly by cutting or burning. This is forbidden in Islām. It is ok while fighting. But when soul leaves leaves the dead, you can’t touch him. That is finished. You have no ruling anymore. The judgment is given by Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla. It is forbidden to burn, cut up and do things like this in Islām.
Nevertheless, non-Muslims say they respect people, their rights and privileges. But when people die, they don’t even bury them anymore. They burn them straight away. And then they keep the ashes or scatter them away; just like that. It’s because they don’t have īmān. These people don’t believe in Allāh and the religion. Who don’t have īmān don’t have respect to humanity. The greatest respect is in Islām. Never was anyone cremated. Muslims didn’t burn even dead kafirs or enemies.
Therefore, Islām is the religion of mercy. It is the highest religion of Allāh ﷻ. What we mean by the highest is when our Holy Prophet ﷺ came, he ﷺ completed it. He ﷺ completed Islām. It is all Islām from ’Ādam ‘alayhi s-salām till our Holy Prophet ﷺ. But it was complete during the time of our Holy Prophet ﷺ. It doesn’t have any fault since then. Because it came down to people slowly. And there is nothing more. May Allāh ﷻ make us all know the worth of Islām, the worth of being Muslim, the worth of īmān. May He ﷻ protect them insha’Allah.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
