Seek Only Allah’s ﷻ Pleasure

8 September by Mawlana Sheikh Muhammad Adil Ar-Rabbani


Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

Our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam is saying that whoever asks for the pleasure of people and stays away from the pleasure of Allah ﷻ stays away from the Mercy of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla.

Staying away from the orders of Allah ﷻ, from Allah ﷻ for pleasing people is not a clever thing. Because whatever you do, you cannot make people happy. No matter how much you do, mankind is never happy. Mankind is ungrateful. Therefore, if you strive to make them happy and tire yourself, you strive in vain. Just like attempting to empty the sea by taking water from one side and pouring it out in the other side, you do a useless thing.

If you do for the pleasure of Allah ﷻ, you will gain. As long as Allah ﷻ is happy and pleased with you, the rest is not important at all. What’s important is the pleasure of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. And Allah ﷻ is pleased with you even when you do the smallest thing. He ﷻ rewards you ten fold of what you do and gives you Thawab.

No matter how much you do for people, they are never happy. You can give people worlds, they still say, “No this and that. You did I don’t know what.” They swear at people and are never pleased. When there isn’t the pleasure of Allah ﷻ, people get their punishment. But when you do for the pleasure of Allah ﷻ and then people, whomever they are, don’t like it as much as they want, that is not important. What’s important is that Allah ﷻ is pleased. You must make Shukr for that.

Whatever everyone is doing according to their capacity, they must do it all for the pleasure of Allah ﷻ. But no, “This one has to like it.” There are many bizarre things now. As if their egos are not enough for people lately, they rather say “This one liked me” and play the fool. They talk nonsense, they swear and do I don’t know what. “This many people liked me and that many people disliked me”. There is a such trend now.

They don’t think about Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla at all. They roll over, play the fool and do strange things only to be liked by people. They never think of Allah ﷻ being pleased with them or not. They don’t care about it. In order for some man or woman to like them, they do so many things. May Allah ﷻ protect us. May Allah ﷻ give mind and understanding to people and to us insha’Allah. May Allah ﷻ protect us. May Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla always be in our hearts and in our minds insha’Allah. Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.

There are recited Qur’an Khatms, Salawat, Tasbihat, Tahlilat. They passed everything recited for the pleasure of Allah ﷻ by our brothers from all over the world to gift them firstly to our Holy Prophet ﷺ, his Ahlu l-Bayt and Sahabah, the souls of all Anbiya, Awliya and Mashayikh, the souls of all our late relatives. For goodness to come and evil to be gone.

Li-Llahi Ta’ala l-Fatiha.
