We are thanking Allah ﷻ, AlhamduliLlah wa sh-ShukruliLlah for everything He ﷻ gave us. AlhamduliLlah with the Barakah and blessing from Allah ﷻ, we visited this country [Canada] which Allah ﷻ gave big beautiful lands and is rich in everything, especially water. ‘وَجَعَلْنَا مِنَ الْمَاءِ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ حَيٍّ’, ‘Wa ja’alnā min al-mā’i kulli shay’in hayy’, ‘And We have made from water every living thing.’ (Qur’ān 21:30). Water is a big Ni’mah for human beings. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla creates everything from water. For this, to have rivers means Allah ﷻ gave a big favor for this land. Everything, Allah ﷻ gives. We are thankful for Him ﷻ for everything He ﷻ gave us and the biggest favor, more than this, is our belief, Iman. We are thanking Him ﷻ for this.

AlhamduliLlah we are coming here for our brothers, our sons who are living in this country, to visit them. Because few of them met Mawlana Sheikh Nazim in his life. But after he changed his world, many of them are also seeing him in their dreams. Because he is still – he has the most [strongest] spiritual power, Awliyau’Llah. In a hundred years there won’t come one like him. For this, he is still active. He is with us. Wherever we go, everything becomes better insha’Allah with his Barakah. I don’t know anything but when the permission came, we asked for Madad and he gave Madad. And AlhamduliLlah for one month we have been among you in this country, beautiful country.

Allah ﷻ creates everything beautiful. Everything is a miracle of Allah ﷻ. Wherever you look, you find His ﷻ beauty, His ﷻ power, every good thing. If you look with eyes of wisdom, eyes of what Awliyau’Llah teach you, you see everything good and beautiful, nothing bad. Why? Because Allah ﷻ wants this, He ﷻ created this, we must accept everything of this. Some people are not accepting. Of course not everybody can be the same. There is a test in this world. Allah ﷻ created people and put them on this earth: ‘لِيَبْلُوَكُمْ أَيُّكُمْ أَحْسَنُ عَمَلًا’, ‘Li-yabluwakum ‘Ayyukum ‘Aĥsanu ‘Amalā’, ‘To test you [as to] which of you is best in deed.’ (Qur’ān 67:02). To test them who is doing the best. Then, he is favored by Allah ﷻ, beloved for Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla.

Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla gave everybody some understanding and gave mind to think. You must know the good, and you must know the bad. How do we know this? Through His ﷻ messengers and prophets. They taught us about this. If we follow ourselves and follow people in asking what is good and what is not good, it will change. You cannot find the same good thing forever in the rule of human beings. Before 20 years, it was different and now it’s different. Before 50 years, it was more different than 20 years ago. From 100 years, it was completely different from now. For this, you cannot follow what human beings do. Because they are doing something, they are trying and after trying [they say], “This is not good” and they are changing. They are not changing for the better. Most of the times it looks like the better, but in reality it is worse. Every time becoming worse and worse and worse. For this, the right thing is what prophets have told us through holy books, heavenly books. And the true one that didn’t change is Qur’an Azimu sh-Shan. Since more than one thousand one hundred years, nothing changed in the Qur’an. The others: too much changed inside it. Some of them changed things, some of them hid them, some of them took out what they don’t like. But the real one is the Qur’an.

All were nearly the same because Allah’s ﷻ religion is one. Everything was coming better and better and better. And the best for human beings is in the Qur’an. And Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam explained that through his life and his actions as Sayyidatina ‘Aisha Ummu l-Mu’minin (Mother of the Believers), the wife of Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam reported. She was a scholar also. They were asking her about many things in Fiqh and Hadith. They asked her, “How was Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam?” She said, “He was like the Qur’an.” Following what the Qur’an says, explaining what the Qur’an says. For this, to follow the Sunnah is obligatory for us.

Now the new fashion, people come and say, “Hadith is not good. We cannot believe in Hadith, only Qur’an.” How will you know, how will you explain the Qur’an! You must see some example in front of you on how to do this. And this is through the Hadith: the Hadith, Sunnah, sayings of Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam and actions of Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. This is the religion, our religion, the rule for human beings through the sayings of Allah ﷻ through Qur’an and Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. Who follows this will be a winner all the time. Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam says in Hadith, you must catch onto my ﷺ Sunnah and Qur’an and follow Ahlu l-Bayt, you will never be a loser. You must follow these three things, you will be safe. Safe from where? From Dunya. Dunya is not important. What’s important is Akhirah. To go out from this Dunya in Iman, in this belief, you will be the (most) happiest one, more than – if the whole world is with you and you don’t have this, you will be a loser. But with this, if you don’t have anything from Dunya but you have this, it is enough for you to be a winner.

This is for what we are saying about human beings, humanity. Now they are making very bad things. Every day they are making laws against the rule of Allah ﷻ. What does it mean against the rule of Allah ﷻ? It means you are making against the nature of human beings. Because Islam is the religion of the nature of human beings: Dinu l-Fitrah. Fitrah means: when the baby comes to the world, he is directly drinking milk from his mother. How does he know this? Allah ﷻ gave him this. So as he is taking milk from his mother, how he is walking, how he is speaking; all of this is the nature of human beings. Allah ﷻ gave human beings a speciality in everything, they must follow it. Others are trying to change what Allah ﷻ created. And every time they change, they are making more misery, more bad things for people.

They think – I don’t know if they think they are doing good. I doubt this also in these people. They are saying, “You must give freedom for everybody to do what they like.” How is this! If everybody does his freedom, it will be a disaster. There must be some limit for some things. You can’t say freedom for everything. Everybody is of course free but freedom must be through the rule of Allah ﷻ. There is Haram, there is Halal. This is the border. When you go for Haram, you will not be more happy, you will be more worse. In everything, you will be worse; in your health, in your psyche, in your relationship with others. You won’t be a beloved one for people. People will be afraid from you or away from you.

For this, to be good with yourself first, you must follow Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla’s rule. Because you control yourself, you train yourself to be an accepted one. Because if you are only selfish and you only think about yourself, nobody likes selfish ones. Even anyone of the people who are claiming they are humanists, they are this, they are that: nobody likes selfish people. But what they are doing is that they are creating whole [completely] selfish people, not thinking about another thing, about the next generation, about earth, about the world. They are not thinking. They are only thinking about themselves and their pleasure. And they think this pleasure will be good for them.

Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla in Dunya – this is also a secret, many people don’t know this – the pleasure or happiness is not the whole time. You cannot find it the whole time. Allah ﷻ gave very little. If you are in the way of Allah ﷻ, this little happiness is enough for you. But when these people think that with what they are doing there’s happiness for them and they will be the whole time happy, they will finish their happiness in five minutes after that they will be miserable. Their whole life, they will be miserable. And from this situation, they are attacking other people also. They want to make the whole society like them because they regret that. But they cannot do anything because they are not looking for someone to save them or they don’t want to survive. They are making more sins, more wrong things and more bad things for themselves and nothing happens.

But the most important is for people not to think that when these people show off that they are happy, they are. They are as we said: happiness not for a hundred percent. Maybe five percent only do they have happiness in this world. But for the Mu’min it is enough, more than enough. For non-Mu’mins, they try to make more and more in every kind: drinking, smoking and making other bad things. They think that with this they can be happy. Never. Allah ﷻ doesn’t like who is not in the way, not obeying His ﷻ order. And when Allah ﷻ doesn’t love him, they cannot be happy at all. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla doesn’t love this Kufr attribute of bad people. Their attribute makes them to not be beloved for Allah ﷻ.

But normally, Allah ﷻ created human beings the best and honored them. 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). Allah ﷻ said, We honored human beings. But when they are making sins, because of their action, this action makes them to not be beloved ones for Allah ﷻ. They must leave this, and Allah ﷻ accepts them. He ﷻ is the Most Merciful. Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm: “إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ جَمِيعًا”, “Inna Allāha Yaghfiru Adh-Dhunūba Jamī`āan”, “Indeed, Allah forgives all sins.” (Qur’ān 39:53). Allah ﷻ forgives everything that’s done. Don’t be hopeless. If you want Allah ﷻ to love you, leave this bad action, you will be clean. This is very important. And Islam is also like this. “ُالإِسلَامُ يَجُبُّ مَا قَبلَه”, “Al-Islam Yajubbu Ma Qablahu”, “Islam effaces previous misdeeds.” When one becomes Mu’min, Muslim, all these sins, Allah ﷻ forgives them; no more sins. So this bad action, bad habits and what they are doing are like dirt on them. When they accept Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla and His ﷻ rule, all this dirt will become finished, going out from them; no more.

Many people are not knowing this. Shaytan doesn’t let them to hear about this. But it is the reality. For the happiness of human beings, they must obey their Lord, accept Him ﷻ and not be away from Him ﷻ. When you run away, you will not find mercy. As much as you go away from the good thing, going to the bad thing, you are going from water to fire. This is the summary of that. May Allah ﷻ help them insha’Allah to find the right way. And may Allah ﷻ keep us and our children from bad actions, from our egos, to not be selfish. Selfishness is the worst thing in Tarīqah and in Shari’ah also.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
