Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:
فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ الْمُتَّقِينَ
(Qur’ān 03:76). ‘Fa-inna Allaha Yuh’ibbu l-Muttaqeen’, ‘Indeed, Allah loves those who fear Him.’ Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla loves people who obey Allah ﷻ, who show respect to Allah ﷻ and who fear Allah ﷻ. To be beloved servants of Allah ﷻ is something Muslims ask for.
‘Awliya means beloved servants of Allah ﷻ. A beloved servant of Allah ﷻ is the one who obeys Him ﷻ and who carries out His ﷻ orders. The way people of the present time see ‘Awliya is that he must have Karamah and do everything they want. That is also possible. But what a beloved servant of Allah ﷻ, Waliyu’Llah does is the thing that everyone must do. What is that? That is to do things ordered by Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla and to stay away from the things that are forbidden. Those who do this are beloved servants of Allah ﷻ.
‘إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ الْكَافِرِينَ’, ‘Inna Allāha lā yuhibbu l-kāfirīn’, ‘Indeed, Allah does not like the disbelievers.’ (Qur’ān 03:32). Allah ﷻ doesn’t love Kafirs. Some foolish people keep asking why He ﷻ gave them various opportunities if He ﷻ doesn’t love them. First of all, you cannot interfere in the business of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. The mind cannot comprehend His ﷻ wisdom. You cannot ask this. If you want to be a beloved servant of Allah ﷻ, you must not interfere in the things He ﷻ does. You must mind yourself. And if you are going on this way, you must make Shukr to Allah ﷻ so that you are even a more beloved servant of Allah ﷻ.
You cannot say, “Why does He ﷻ love this one and does not love the other one?” He ﷻ doesn’t love them. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla doesn’t love people in Kufr. And why is He ﷻ giving them opportunities? Because this world has no value and so that people wouldn’t say they went in Kufr because they didn’t have anything. Everything is given to you. Yet, you are going against Allah ﷻ.
These are the people of this time. They want to interfere in everything. They say “It is democracy. We will talk about everything”. But that is a big lie. They can talk as much as they want. These forces of evil, people of shaytan are ruling as they like, as this world is in their hands. Therefore, mind yourself. Be a beloved servant of Allah ﷻ. Go on His ﷻ way. And don’t interfere in anything else.
You are living in this time, so look at it as a benefit and trade. The more difficult it is, the higher your rank and Thawab will increase. And what is easy, Allah ﷻ will make it easy insha’Allah. May Allah ﷻ make the difficult easy. It is the Dua of our Holy Prophet ﷺ. May He ﷻ make for us easy what we see as difficult insha’Allah. May He ﷻ not test us insha’Allah.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
