Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here(6:04):
Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
Our Holy Prophet ﷺ is saying, “يَسِّرُوا ولا تُعَسِّرُوا”, “Yassirū wa-lā Tu‘assiru”, “Make things easy and do not make them difficult”. [Hadith] “Make it easy. Don’t make it difficult.” Islām is the religion of easiness. Do not push people away by complicating it, says our Holy Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. Whatever you do, when you do it for the pleasure of Allāh ﷻ, Allāh ﷻ accepts it.
As we are living in the end of times, anything done for Allāh ﷻ, Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla accepts it. But there is shayṭān. ‘مِن شَرِّ الْوَسْوَاسِ الْخَنَّاسِ’, ‘Min sharri l-waswāsi l- khannās’, ‘From the evil of the retreating whisperer.’ (Qur’ān 114:04). As soon as you want to do something good he tries to prevent it and says, “This is not sunnah. This is wrong.” You must say the word of Allāh ﷻ. You must remember the name of Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla. You must do what He ﷻ ordered. Shayṭān comes from such door to you and says, “This is bid‘ah. You are not doing goodness. Do not pray. Do not make ṣalawāt. Do not gather. Do not gather with Muslim brothers. Stay alone and wild. Don’t listen to anyone. Don’t follow madhhab. Don’t join ṭarīqah. All of them are ḥarām, bid‘ah and shirk.” This group who says so are the best friends of shayṭān.
Because when this is done, īmān goes away. People become faithless. They are Muslim only on tongue. They have no īmān in their hearts. When it is gone, they may lose what is on their tongues as well. May Allāh ﷻ protect us. And they will go into kufr.
Therefore, we must pay attention to this. Don’t listen to those people who make waswasa. However you do, just do it. Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla will accept it. Allāh ﷻ is not in need of your worship. Do it for yourself. And don’t leave it. Wherever there is a good gathering that remembers Allāh ﷻ, attend it. Go to assemblies of ṣuḥbah. Go to assemblies of dhikr.
We seek refuge in Allāh ﷻ from shayṭān and his associates who make waswasa. ‘قُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ النَّاسِ’, ‘Qul aʿūdhu bi-rabbi n-nās’, ‘Say, “I seek refuge in the Lord of mankind.’ (Qur’ān 114:01). ‘مِن شَرِّ الْوَسْوَاسِ الْخَنَّاسِ’, ‘Min sharri l-waswāsi l- khannās’, From the evil of the retreating whisperer.’ (Qur’ān 114:04). We seek refuge in Allāh ﷻ from these people who make waswasa to others, put them in hardship and prevent from doing goodness. Just like we seek refuge in Allāh ﷻ from shayṭān, we seek refuge in Allāh ﷻ from them. May Allāh ﷻ protect us from their evil. They have repulsed many people and pushed them away from the religion. There are many people who went out of religion. They made it so strict in Muslim countries that after losing īmān, they lost Islām as well which was on their tongues. They turned to kufr.
Therefore, easiness is the first order of our religion. Every work of our Holy Prophet ﷺ was good. His ﷺ every work was with Adab. He ﷺ was ordered to people with goodness. With goodness, the hearts lean towards Islām. Without it, when they are rough and rude, people run away. Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm: ‘وَلَوْ كُنتَ فَظًّا غَلِيظَ الْقَلْبِ لَانفَضُّوا مِنْ حَوْلِكَ’, ‘Wa-law kunta faẓẓan ghalīẓa l-qalbi la-nfaḍḍū min ḥawlik’, ‘And if you had been rude [in speech] and harsh in heart, they would have disbanded from about you.’ (Qur’ān 03:159). Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla is saying, “If you were a tough and strict person, people around you would run away from you.”
So the character of our Holy Prophet ﷺ is the best character. Our Holy Prophet ﷺ treated people the best. With both the young and the old, he ﷺ had a beautiful assembly with everyone. He ﷺ never shouted at anyone directly. When he ﷺ didn’t like something, he ﷺ kept quiet. They would understand it.
Therefore, don’t listen to these rough and rude people. Everything you do with sincere intention for Allāh ﷻ is accepted with the permission of Allāh ﷻ. Everyone must know this. And those who say they are Muslim must know this first of all.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
