The Only Refuge for Believers

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:
فَفِرُّوا إِلَى اللَّهِ
(Qur’ān 51:50). ‘Fafirrū ilāLlāh’, ‘So flee to Allah.’ Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is saying, “Where should you run? You should run to Allah ﷻ”. There is no other place to run. It is the same both here and hereafter. Whoever is on the way of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla, he will turn to Him ﷻ.

People don’t know what to do now, whether they should go to one place or another. They are thinking on it. But Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla has shown it anyways. Run to Allah ﷻ, turn to Allah ﷻ. There is nowhere else to run. “يَا مَنْ لَا مَلْجَأَ مِنهُ إِلَّا إِلَيْهِ”, “Ya Man La Malja’a Min’hu illa ‘Ilayh”, “O He Who there is no refuge from except to Him” There is nowhere else to run except to Him ﷻ. The place of refuge is Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla.

This is great good tidings for believers. Even though they are frustrated, there is a true place for them. Their destination place is the mercy and benevolence of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla, His ﷻ blessing and beauty. These are for believers.

Unbelievers who make corruption and want to spread their Kufr to others can go to shaytan. They seek refuge in shaytan. And they are together with shaytan. This is the punishment for those who mislead people and take their Iman away. They will never be saved from fear, worry and sadness.

Those who will be saved are those who seek refuge in Allah ﷻ. They will be saved with the permission of Allah ﷻ. Their hearts will be at rest. They will be at rest, and they will be in peace. Therefore, making Dua to Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla, repenting and asking for forgiveness and mercy from Allah ﷻ is the place of refuge for believers. That is the best place.

Listening to the words of others who say, “This one did this. If only that was like that”, that is not important. What’s important is that you train yourself and your ego. If you train your ego, you will be saved and happy. You will be on the way of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. Allah ﷻ will accept you. Allah ﷻ will take you under His ﷻ mercy. You will have got in the best place.

Otherwise, we see that shaytans are going wilder instead of coming to senses. They are becoming worse. Those who listen to them will be just like them. There will be no peace. There will be fear and hopelessness. So be on the way of Allah ﷻ, and you will reach safety both here and hereafter. May Allah ﷻ not separate us from that way insha’Allah. And may He ﷻ guide the rest. May Allah ﷻ protect us from their evil.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
