Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
What’s important is that our people attain the pleasure of Allah ﷻ. The pleasure of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is important, and the pleasure of people is not important. Because the way of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is one. The ways of people are millions and billions. If you want to make everyone happy, you cannot make anyone happy. As long as Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is pleased, the rest are not important.
Those who are on the way of Allah ﷻ should be pleased and happy with you. That is what is important. Don’t tire yourself in order to make others happy. They will be pleased with you for an hour, and then they won’t like you again and ask for something else. You will do things they ask for in order to look good in their eyes, but then they will ask for other things. They will ask for useless things, harmful things, bad things from you.
If you are involved with them once, you can’t get out of it. Therefore, don’t pay attention to them. What is to be paid attention is the pleasure of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. Things against the pleasure of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla won’t bring any benefit to you. They will bring harm and badness. Your service to others has no limits. You following them has no limits. They will take you up to hell and they won’t be happy; you won’t be able to get out of it.
Now something worse has occurred for all common people. As if that is not enough, shaytan’s tools – Mawlana Shaykh Nazim used to say in old times regarding the television that it is a shaytan box. Now there are even worse things. As soon as you enter them, they enslave you and make you do whatever they want.
This applies to a part of people. But otherwise, as all people have left the way of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla, they think, “How should I please them? How will they be happy with us?” They turn you into educated monkeys, like people of old times used to say, by telling you to do this and that. And you run around to do that. You will not have an atom size of benefit. They will harm you. And it won’t bring benefit to them as well. It will bring benefit only to shaytan. Those who are on the way of shaytan are useless and harmful people.
As we said, our goal insha’Allah is the pleasure of Allah ﷻ. We don’t need the pleasure of those who are against the pleasure of Allah ﷻ. May Allah ﷻ protect us from their evil. People who love Allah ﷻ put themselves and their egos on His ﷻ way. The ego is good then. Otherwise, who put their egos on the pleasure of others, their egos will destroy them. May Allah ﷻ protect us. May Allah ﷻ protect us from their evil insha’Allah.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
