Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
There is a saying, the sun cannot be plastered with wet clay. What does it mean? No matter how much you try to conceal the truth, it will come to the surface. And the truth is the light of Islam, the sun of Islam. In order for people to stay away from it, they are doing all kinds of tricks and evil. They want to cover it so that people don’t look at it. In order for people not to listen to it, they do everything they can.
As long as Allah ﷻ wants it, this light will be apparent. Whoever tries it and gets its taste asks for this light. Everyone surely wants this light to appear inside them. Because this light is the light of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. It is the beauty of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. Therefore, no matter how much they try to cover it, it appears by the wisdom of Allah ﷻ. And even when those who claim to be the biggest enemies hear about it, they accept it.
This has been the same since old times, since the time of our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam until now. When Sayyidina ‘Umar radiyAllahu ‘anhu was coming to kill our Holy Prophet ﷺ, he heard these beautiful words and became Muslim straight away. There were many Mushriks. When they heard these holy words of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla about Islam, with the Barakah of Qur’an ‘Azimu sh-Shan of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla, they became Muslim and found the truth.
It is the same with the people of the present time. But certainly, the time we are living now is the time of the second Jahiliyyah (Ignorance). It is worse. The first Jahiliyyah was better than this one. Now it is worse. They think they will conceal it and no one will love it. They think no one will care about it and will run away from it. However, when Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla gives a chance, the light in their hearts accepts it immediately. And no matter how much enmity they have, they leave this enmity and become friends of Allah ﷻ.
The best thing for people is the way of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. We should ask why we were created. A non-Muslim lady asked this yesterday: why were we created? It is a good thought – why were we created? Allah ﷻ gave mind and understanding. Animals don’t think why they were created. They eat and drink and live by like that. But people must think about it: why we were created.
We were created to be on the way of Allah ﷻ. Our goal is to be on the way of Allah ﷻ and to attain the pleasure of Allah ﷻ. May Allah ﷻ let everyone be on this beautiful way. May He ﷻ make them steadfast. May they not be cheated, because Allah ﷻ gave them a beautiful favor, the favor of Islam, the beautiful favor of Iman, and they were born Muslim. The rest became so later. We ask that Allah ﷻ gives guidance to them. May Allah ﷻ give guidance to everyone insha’Allah so that they are on this right way.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
