Leave Doubtful Matters

Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:


Our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam says that the Halal things are clear and the Haram things are clear. And there are some unclear things between them, says our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. Leaving them is better. Because our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam has informed us about all the orders and prohibitions of the religion. But sometimes people fall into doubt. They get confused. Therefore, it is better to leave those doubtful things. As it is doubtful for them, it is better not to do them in order to be on the safe side.

People of old times, old scholars were pious people. They wouldn’t even take the Halal. They were that hard on their egos. They were tolerant with others. But with their own egos, they were hard and never gave what their egos asked for. Mawlana Shaykh Nazim was like this too. He had a lot of tolerance. He was so tolerant that some people misinterpreted it, whereas Mawlana Shaykh Nazim mostly didn’t give his ego what is Halal as well. But he was happy with other people even if they did the lowest thing. In order for people who didn’t pray to start praying, he used to advise them to start from two Rakā’at daily and to increase it later. But he himself would never miss any Sunnah or Nafl prayer.

Therefore, people must do as much as they can. They shouldn’t say “I cannot do”. They certainly can do it. They can do a lot. But the Nafs/ego, Hawa/desires, shaytan and Dunya don’t let them do it. These four enemies don’t like it when you do goodness, perform worship and are a servant of Allah ﷻ. They try to prevent it. Therefore, we should certainly do what we can.

It is said: start from zero. Some people enter wanting to start from the top and do everything to become an Awliya. And then they quit everything completely after a week, a month or two months. That’s not the way. Starting gradually and increasing it as much as you can will be beneficial to you. Doubtful things are like that in Dunya as well. People must be determined. They must be determined in what they want to do. When you have a doubt if it works out or not, your work won’t go well then.

Our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam has taught us everything. All his ﷺ beautiful words are beneficial for both Dunya and Akhirah. Don’t say they are of no benefit in Dunya. They are beneficial in Dunya as well. Whoever listens to the holy words of our Holy Prophet ﷺ will be in profit both here and hereafter. May Allah ﷻ not separate us from his ﷺ way and make us successful in performing his ﷺ Sunnah and doing the same of what he ﷺ did insha’Allah.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.

Tabarakah, Ayat, Tasbihat, Tahlilat, Salawat, Dalail al-Khairat and Hadiths. We gift all of them to our Holy Prophet ﷺ and his Ahlu l-Bayt and Sahabah. We gift them to all Anbiya, Awliya’, Asfiya, to souls of Mujahideen. To souls of our late relatives. May all the good goals of those who have recited be reached. May it be of strength of Iman to those who are here and all of us. Li-Llahi Ta’ala l-Fatiha.
