Ranks Increase with Iman

Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:

وَلَا تَهِنُوا وَلَا تَحْزَنُوا وَأَنتُمُ الْأَعْلَوْنَ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ

(Qur’ān 03:139). ‘Wa-lā tahinū wa-lā taḥzanū wa-antumu l-ʾalawna in kuntum muʾminīn’, ‘So do not weaken and do not be sad, and you will be superior if you are [true] believers.’ Sadaqa Llāhu l-‘Aẓīm.

Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla says, “Do not ever be sad. Do not be upset. Your ranks are higher than theirs if you have Iman”. Believers are always higher in the sight of Allah ﷻ. People are the same. With Iman, their ranks increase. Not with money but with Iman. The more Iman you have, the more precious you are.

Everyone can take his share from it. Not everyone can be rich in this world. Not everyone can study or become a scholar. Not everyone can be a doctor or whichever profession that is good. But in terms of Iman, everyone can have it. It is the wisdom of Allah ﷻ. But people leave it and look at other things. In order to be raised in this world, they either forget about Akhirah or don’t believe in it at all.

When people believe, their ranks are high. They are the people who are high in the sight of Allah ﷻ and close to Allah ﷻ. Otherwise, as this life is not eternal, no matter how much you are raised, you pass away from this life eventually. And your rank hereafter will be the lowest if you don’t believe in Allah ’Azza wa-Jalla and don’t obey Allah ﷻ. And you will be at the bottom. You will be with the lowest ones.

The rest will be above. Their stations will be great. And they will be the beloved ones in the sight of Allah ﷻ. Therefore, those who have Iman are always in profit. Those who don’t have Iman are always at loss. No matter how much they relied on themselves in this world, that will be useless in Akhirah.

Therefore, Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla says not to get upset. The stations and ranks of you who believe are high. No one should see themselves lower than Kafirs. You are above them. You are above Kafirs in the presence of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. You can be high among people as much as you want. You cannot trust people anyways. They put you up one day and then drop you to the bottom the next day.

Therefore, have Iman. The more you approach Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla, that is the benefit for you. There is no benefit in other things. May Allah ﷻ give strength to our Iman insha’Allah.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.

There are recited Qur’an Khatms, Yasin, Tasbihat, Salawat, Ayat and Surahs. We gift all of them on behalf of our brothers who recited them from all over the world to our Holy Prophet ﷺ, his Ahlu l-Bayt and Sahabah, to the souls of all Anbiya, Awliya, Asfiya and Mashayikh, to the souls of our late relatives. For goodness to come and evil to be gone. May the good goals of those who have recited them be reached. May they be happy here and hereafter. To the souls of all Mu’minin and Mu’minat, and our deceased ones. Li-Llahi Ta’ala l-Fatiha.
