Start Everything with BismiLlah

Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:


Our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam says if an action is started without BismiLlah, that action will not have a good outcome. Good deeds must be started with BismiLlah. Insha’Allah they will always be the means to goodness and will continue so. Shukr to Allah ﷻ, there was a beautiful wedding ceremony last night. We started it with BismiLlah. Insha’Allah they will have a good life.

People don’t pay attention to important things. When getting married, people sometimes start their lives not with goodness and BismiLlah but with badness. And then there is no benefit. They give drinks and food forbidden by Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla at the weddings. It doesn’t have a good ending then.

Everything must be for the pleasure of Allah ﷻ. For the pleasure of Allah ﷻ, His ﷻ name must come first. We start every event with the beautiful name of Allah ﷻ, with the names ar-Rahman and ar-Rahim. With the permission of Allah ﷻ, this event will have a good outcome and a good start. Every side of it will be good insha’Allah.

Otherwise, it won’t be good. Something started with a sin will neither be beautiful, nor good. Therefore, people must be careful. Sometimes people forget. Sometimes they fall into heedlessness. The things they do don’t bring benefit. What brings benefit is when everyone is on the way of Allah ﷻ, when they are on the way of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. That is what brings benefit, because Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla created us to be on His ﷻ way.

BismiLlahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim,

وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ’,

Wa-ma Khalaqtu l-Insa wal Jinna illa li-Ya’budun’, ‘And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me.’ (Qur’ān 51:56). “I created Jinn and people to perform worship”. As long as they perform worship, people live, eat, drink, walk and do everything for the pleasure of Allah ﷻ then. Otherwise, it is for their egos.

Allah ﷻ made everything permissible. There is Halal and Haram in everything. And both have their price. When people do one of it, they are not deprived of the other one. When you goodness, even though sin appears to be good, it doesn’t have any goodness. It has no benefit.

Therefore, it is a great virtue for people to always be on the way of Allah ﷻ. It is great luck. As Allah ﷻ has granted it, following this way and making Shukr to Allah ﷻ are our duty. May Allah ﷻ help us in following His ﷻ way. May He ﷻ not let us go astray insha’Allah.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
