Temporary Beauty without Iman

Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:

فَأَيْنَمَا تُوَلُّوا فَثَمَّ وَجْهُ اللَّهِ’,

Fa’aynamā Tuwallū Fathamma Wajhu Allāh’, ‘So wherever you [might] turn, there is the Face of Allah.’ (Qur’ān 02:115). Where is Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla? Allah ﷻ is everywhere. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is the one who gives life to everything and whose knowledge we cannot comprehend. It is necessary for people to do everything for Allah ﷻ.

Shukr to Allah ﷻ for the favors He ﷻ gives us in this world from His ﷻ possessions. He ﷻ has a lot of favors. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla says, ‘سِيرُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ’, ‘Seeru fil-Ard’, ‘Travel through the land.’ (Qur’ān 29:20). Go around the world and look at possession of Allah ﷻ, witness His ﷻ greatness. The greatness of Allah ﷻ is seen from His ﷻ creatures. The mind cannot comprehend Himself ﷻ.

Shukr to Allah ﷻ, we made this trip to very far places [Canada]. We saw the beauties created by Allah ﷻ and the favors given to people. They are everywhere. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla has given favors everywhere. Everything Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla does is beautiful. Everything He ﷻ created is beautiful. What makes the beautiful ugly is disobedience and Kufr. Otherwise, wherever it is, the truth is beautiful, the essence is beautiful. As we said, Kufr makes it ugly. If Kufr is removed, everything will turn back to its origin. It will become beautiful again.

Obeying Allah ﷻ and worshipping Allah ﷻ are the causes of beauty. And making Kufr is the cause of ugliness. Therefore, as long as people know this, they can benefit from this beauty and save themselves. This beauty is temporary. No matter how beautiful it is, neither you will remain here, nor me. What will remain are the deeds of people.

Therefore, Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla says not to be deceived by Dunya – ‘فَلَا تَغُرَّنَّكُمُ الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا’, ‘Falā Taghurrannakumu l-Ĥayātu d-Dunyā’, ‘So let not the life of the world deceive you.’ (Qur’ān 35:05). It may be very beautiful. But unless there is Iman, it has no benefit. May Allah ﷻ protect us. The biggest problem of our brothers and Muslims over there is Iman. Because they live in the river of Kufr. Everything is so beautiful, but Dunya can cheat people. Insha’Allah may Allah ﷻ help them. May Allah ﷻ be pleased with them. They hosted us and took care of us very well. Brothers who hadn’t seen Mawlana Shaykh Nazim for years came from both America and Canada. As we couldn’t go to America, they came there because it is closer. It was very nice. May Allah ﷻ bless it and make it the means for goodness insha’Allah.

May Muslims submit themselves to Allah ﷻ and trust in Allah ﷻ more, because they rely on this and that. And then nothing works. There is no one to trust in except Allah ﷻ. Seek refuge in Allah ﷻ, and Allah ﷻ will protect you insha’Allah. In order not to say “We did so and so.” May they be under the protection of Allah ﷻ insha’Allah. May the Iman of all of them be firm. May they be the means of guidance for the people there.

People there are good in everything, better than Muslims and better in everything. But as long as they lack Iman, nothing is beneficial. No matter how good it is, as long as they don’t say the two words that will bring them to Iman and Islam, it will probably not bring any benefit. Allahu ‘A’lam (Allah ﷻ knows best). May Allah ﷻ help them and protect them.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
