Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
“الفِتْنَةُ نَائِمَةٌ لَعَنَ اللَّهُ مَنْ أَيْقَظَهَا”,
“Fitnah is asleep. May the curse of Allah be upon whoever awakens it.” Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam is telling about Fitnah. He ﷺ is cursing who makes Fitnah. In every time, there is Fitnah. But he ﷺ said, it is sleeping. So if you make a little thing [action], it will wake up. And who makes the Fitnah to wake up, Allah ﷻ curses him, says Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam.
We are living in time of Fitnah. Everywhere there is Fitnah. There are many Fitnah between Muslims. And of course, Muslims are many parts. There is division in Ahlu s-Sunnah which are not Ahlu s-Sunnah, out of the way of Ahlu s-Sunnah. Of course, out of Ahlu s-Sunnah there are many parts, many divisions. But Ahlu s-Sunnah were strong together until this Wahhabi Fitnah came and other Fitnah came again. So they also made Ahlu s-Sunnah take part of this, out of the way of Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam.
Ahlu s-Sunnah wal Jama’ah means who follow Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam said,
“أصحابي كالنّجومِ بأيّهم اِقتديتُم اِهتديتُم”,
“Aṣhābī kā n-nujūm bi ayyihim qtadaytum htadaytum”. Aw Kamā Qāl (or as he ﷺ said). “My companions are as the stars. Whichever you follow, you will be in Hidayah (guidance) in the right way.”
This is the way of Ahlu s-Sunnah wal Jama’ah. To make balance between everything. Not going to extremes. Sayyidina Ali Karrama Llahu Wajhah (May Allah exalt his face) said,
“عَلَامَاتُ الْجُنُونِ إِمَّا إفْرَاط وَإِمَّا تَفْرِيط”,
“A’lamaatu l–Junooni ‘Imma ‘Ifrat wa ‘Imma Tafreet”, “The signs of madness are either excess or negligence.” The sign of being with no mind, crazy, mad is to be extreme. This is the saying of Sayyidina Ali Karrama Llahu Wajhah. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla also says,
‘وَكَذَٰلِكَ جَعَلْنَاكُمْ أُمَّةً وَسَطًا’,
‘Wa kadhalika ja’alnākum ‘ummatan wasatāa’, ‘Thus We have appointed you a middle nation.’ (Qur’ān 02:143). You are not extreme, He ﷻ said. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla made you in the middle. In everything you must be in the middle, not going to extremes.
So for this, who follows Ahlu s-Sunnah wal Jama’ah must know that the companions of Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam are very precious. And Ahlu l-Bayt are also very precious. This is the belief of Ahlu s-Sunnah wal Jama’ah. What they had done, what had happened, we don’t interfere. It is not our business. Our business is to look at ourselves. Not to interfere with the Sahabah, “This is right. This is wrong.” Because we don’t even know how to walk, so how can we judge and say this!
So we are asking from Muslims, Ahlu s-Sunnah wal Jama’ah scholars or others, to not make something harming Muslims. Because many Muslims follow ‘Ulama, follow scholars. Many of them believe and accept what they say. For this, if you are ‘Alim and you make Fitnah, Allah ﷻ curses you more than normal people.
For this, we must be careful, very careful not to make anything that can cause Fitnah for Muslims, for Ahlu s-Sunnah wal Jama’ah. We have enough Fitnah everywhere; attacking from inside and from outside. From every side, we are in Fitnah, big Fitnah. So we must be together, Ahlu s-Sunnah wal Jama’ah. And to love each other, to respect each other. And to know that Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam will be happy with you and Allah ﷻ will be happy with you when you follow him ﷺ. Not putting new ideas and new things. The main Tariqah are Ahlu s-Sunnah wal Jama’ah. And this is coming from Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam until our time. All Tariqah are like this. So be careful not to be cursed. If you are cursed, you will lose everything.
For this, follow the way of Tariqah which is Ahlu s-Sunnah wal Jama’ah. The strongest way to follow. If you are out, many people can cheat you. You follow them and think you are doing good, but you are doing wrong. May Allah ﷻ protect Ahlu s-Sunnah and all Muslims. And may Allah ﷻ give Hidayah (guidance) to others also to follow this nice way, beautiful way insha’Allah.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
