Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
Ṭarīqatunā aṣ-Suḥbah wa l-Khayru fi l-Jam‘iyyah.
Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:
كُلُوا مِمَّا فِي الْأَرْضِ حَلَالًا طَيِّبًا
‘‘Kulu mimma fi l-Ardi Halalan Tayyiban’’
‘’Eat from whatever is on earth [that is] lawful and good.’’Sadaqa Llāhu l-‘Aẓīm.
Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla orders us to eat good things, Halal and not bad. For this, for our body, we must eat something to continue our life. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla made Rizq, provision for everybody in Dunya. He must eat but he must look for the good thing to eat. And for it to be accepted on the way of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla and as what He جل جلاله ordered. To eat what He جل جلاله wants. And what He جل جلاله doesn’t want, doesn’t accept, do not eat. If you eat this, it will not be good for you.
Like, you know, the meat of animal that you cannot eat and which you can eat.
Everybody knows from Muslims insha’Allah. For drinks also, you know alcohol is forbidden. And other things you cannot drink if it is poisoned or other. This is also not acceptable, not allowed. For what? For our benefit. You drink alcohol or you drink poison, it is the same. Also, you harm yourself. Allah جل جلاله doesn’t accept this: to harm yourself or harm others.
For this, we are living in a time when everything is not good. Everything is spoiled. In everything, they have changed what Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla created for the benefit of people. They have changed many things. They have played with it. And sometimes what’s most important becomes harm for people.
For this, you must look for the good thing, what’s of benefit for you. “Tayyib” means what is of benefit for yourself, for your body and for your soul also. Because it affects both sides.
We are living in a time when there’s many from food, from drink and such. And human beings cannot control themselves; they want more and more. And when they eat, they after that become ill. From where is this coming? Of course from what you eat . I think it is a Hadith .
“الْمَعِدَةُ بَيْتُ الدَّاءِ وَالْحِمْيَةُ رَأْسُ الدَّوَاءِ”
“The stomach is the house of diseases, and diet is the best medicine.” I don’t know if it is a Hadith, but maybe. It means that the stomach is the house of illness, and to have a diet is the best medicine.
For this, now these people also look at what Islam is saying, and after that say, “Yes. This is very important.” What Islam is ordering is this good thing. And beside this, it is ordering to fast. When you fast, they said that what is not good – Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla created our body to be enough for us, no need for other things such as medicine or something. When you fast, your body eats this bad thing and throws it away.
Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla – SubhanAllah, SubhanAllah l-Aliyyi l-Azim – He created us and He جل جلاله told us how to use our body. Like if you buy some machine, you have instructions. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla put these instructions for us from the first day till the end of our lives. We have these instructions, but nobody follows it. And after that they say, “This happened, that happened.” If you follow it, Bi-izniLlah (with Allah’s جل جلاله permission) nothing happens to you.
May Allah جل جلاله keep us in His جل جلاله way, and make us control ourselves in everything.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
