Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:
“مِّنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ رِجَالٌ صَدَقُوا مَا عَاهَدُوا اللَّهَ عَلَيْهِ ۖ فَمِنْهُم مَّن قَضَىٰ نَحْبَهُ وَمِنْهُم مَّن يَنتَظِرُ”,
“Mina l-mu’minīna rijālun ṣadaqū mā ‘āhadū Llāha ‘alayhi fa-minhum man qaḍá naḥbahu wa-minhum man yantaẓir“, “Among the believers are men true to what they pledged to Allah . Among them is he who has fulfilled his vow [to the death], and among them is he who awaits [his chance].” (Qur’an 33:23) Ṣadaqa Llāhu l-‘aẓīm.
Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla says there are such believers, such good people who have remained firm to the words they had given. And those words; they have held firm on the way which is the way of Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla. Certainly, everyone dies. So some of them passed away, and some are waiting to pass away.
People who pass away on this way by being steadfast and keeping their words are the accepted people. People who are not cheated by dunyā, shayṭān and Hawa (desires) and don’t leave the way are the ones praised by Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla. And they are few people, of course. But there are many of such good people, shukr to Allāh ﷻ. We have humble people who serve others, who do everything they can to bring people to the right path, shukr to Allāh ﷻ. There are [such people] in every time and everywhere.
One of these people is a murīd of ours who’s been there since the time of Mawlānā Shaykh Nāẓim, a person who remained firm and didn’t leave the path, a beautiful man. He passed away the day before yesterday, and we prayed Salātu l-Gha’ib yesterday. Nūh Efendi. He was a very humble man. He invited many non-Muslims to īmān and Islām. Many people were honored with īmān on his hand and through his beautiful manners. Allāh ﷻ gives His wisdom to whomever He ﷻ wants, and He ﷻ gave him from that wisdom. He served people by beautifully telling them about Islām and bringing them to the right path without leaving the path himself. May Allāh ﷻ be pleased with him. May Allāh ﷻ be pleased with him for he was never proud. He didn’t do anything in vain. He was a man who was always humble, who knew the way and showed the way to people. He was a man of service. His humbleness was an example. And the clothing he wore, whatever the wisdom is, he had a patched Jubbah. He used to go around wearing it. May Allāh ﷻ make paradise his abode.
How lucky is he, for he is gone with the attributes mentioned in Qur’ān ‘Aẓīmu sh-Sha’n. This is what’s important. For everyone to pass away with such an attribute is the greatest gain for them. If they go without it – even if they say, “The whole world belonged to this man. The whole world was under his command.” So what? They are dead now. There is no benefit neither to them nor to others. There is no benefit. The benefit is in passing away with good deeds and with this attribute. That is the gain. May Allāh ﷻ give that state to all of us. May He ﷻ make us from Allāh’s ﷻ beloved servants inshā’aLlāh.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
