Keep People’s Rights

Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:(6:44)

Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:


The Ḥaqq (right) is a duty we have to protect. The right and the law are the most questioned things in Islām. They are from the foundation of Islām. Giving the right to the one who has right is the pillar of Islām. This is one of the most important orders in Islām. Mawlānā Shaykh Nāẓim was called Ḥaqqānī which means the one who protects rights. It means a person on the way of truth.

It is easy to say that you protect the right, but most people cannot do it. Many people go according to the waswasa of shayṭān and orders of shayṭān. They want to acquire the right to themselves rather than giving it to others. And if the truth is against them, they don’t accept it. This is the character of people. Because people need to be cleaned out like a wild tree. They need to be pruned off to become good. That is in the character of people. Even if it is not their right, when it is in their personal interest, they see themselves as right. This is something not good.

Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla and our Holy Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam are not happy with it. Whoever’s the right is, you must give it. Oftentimes, wrongful people used to come to Mawlānā Shaykh Nāẓim and say “We ask this from you”. Even though they were wrong, Mawlānā Shaykh Nāẓim gave it to them so that they have their rights in any case.

Therefore, this is an important matter. People of the present time have no rights at all in all aspects. There is no right and law in this time. It is the end of times. People don’t get their rights in courts. There is no law either. There is nothing anywhere in this world. Because there is no country which is based on Islām. No one keeps the law of Islām. All of them are different. Even if someone is right and wants to get his right, even if he is able to get his right in a court, it takes 10 years, 5 years – No one gets it in 5 years. It takes longer than 10 years. A man may die by then, and there’s no use of this law.

There is no right and no law in this time. Don’t say “Why would I keep the right and law?” Everyone is questioned for himself and is responsible for himself. Whoever does injustice; the right one will get his right in front of Allāh ﷻ, says our Holy Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. Even if a horned sheep attacks a hornless sheep, on Judgment Day, it will be given horns to attack. It will get its right back. It is that thorough. If Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla takes rights for animals, He ﷻ certainly takes them for people too.

Everyone is doing badness in this world. Don’t say “I will also do badness”. Be on the right way, on the way of Ḥaqq/truth. You will attain the mercy of Ḥaqq. Otherwise, you will have struggled for nothing. What you earn is nothing. What you think you earn is: you take someone’s right. That right will turn bad for you. It won’t be good for you. It’ll bring suffering and badness. May Allāh ﷻ protect us from taking anyone’s right. May Allāh ﷻ protect all of us.

We have a good tradition when people say, “Forgive your right from me.” Some people forgive their rights. But some cannot forgive their rights from people who have taken them. Therefore, we must be careful with rights. We must ask for forgiveness. When they say they don’t forgive you, you should ask “What is your right?”. “So and so”. “Okay. Let me return it, but you must forgive it.” We must say so. May Allāh ﷻ protect us. May He ﷻ let us go to ākhirah without taking anyone’s right.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
