One Percent Is Enough

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

A‘ūdhu Billāhi Minash-shayṭāni r-rajīm. Bismillāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm.

Ṭarīqatunā aṣ-Suḥbah wa l-Khayru fi l-Jam‘iyyah.

Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:

لَا يُكَلِّفُ ٱللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا
(Qur’ān 02:286).
‘’La yukallifu Llahu nafsan illa wus’aha’’
‘’Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity.’’

What Allah جل جلاله gives, what He جل جلاله orders, everybody can do. He جل جلاله is not giving more than what you can do. You can do easily. People and human beings can do what Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla orders. But also, they are not doing.

Of course, Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam said to the Sahabah, “What I order, you must do a hundred percent. Ninety-nine percent is not enough for you. You must do a hundred percent.” But he صلى الله عليه وسلم said for Akhiru z-Zaman, end of times, there will be people, if they do one percent, it is okay also for them.

So this is the mercy of Allah جل جلاله, and mercy of Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa- sallam . For his صلى الله عليه وسلم Ummah not to not forget Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla, to remember Him جل جلاله . Even one percent can be enough for them. Because the important thing is to remember Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla, to remember His جل جلاله order.

Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said that when somebody from that time stands for praying, immediately when he says Takbir, “Nawaytu Salatu Fard Dhuhr.” He makes “Allahu Akbar” quickly. But in some places, they are waiting trying to make maybe two minutes, three minutes until they say Takbir; no need for this. You are Akhiru z-Zaman Ummah, just quickly make Niyyah/intention for prayer and say Takbir. After that, Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam said that these people, after the Takbir they are thinking what they will do, where they will go, how’s work, how are the children, how’s Dunya. When they reach the last Rak’ah, they forget: “Did we pray three, we prayed five, we prayed two. What did we pray?” And they make Sajdat Sahw (prostration of forgetfulness), to cover [correct] the wrong they had done in praying: for what we forgot, or if we didn’t read something. They make two Sajdah for Allah جل جلاله to forgive them. This is acceptable.

We are living in a time which is a difficult time. But also, a blessed time for believers who are following the orders of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. We are not by our will in this time. By Allah’s جل جلاله wisdom, He جل جلاله put us in this time. And we must accept and be happy for His جل جلاله gift, His جل جلاله will that He جل جلاله made us on His جل جلاله way. This is important.

For this don’t make too much Waswas, “Is what we have done accepted or not accepted?” Of course, all what we do is nothing. But Allah جل جلاله with His جل جلاله Mercy, He جل جلاله created angels to correct what we do wrong even in reciting Qur’an, in praying or other things. In all of this, after you make intention and do as much as you can do, Allah جل جلاله forgives us for the rest and rewards us insha’Allah.

May Allah جل جلاله make us in His جل جلاله way and not be out of His جل جلاله way , in sha ‘Allah.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
