Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
Our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam says, “The person who does not know anything from the Qur’an inside him is like a ruined house.” It is the beautiful word of our Holy Prophet ﷺ. The inside of a person becomes prosperous with the Qur’an and the word of Allah ﷻ. Otherwise, there won’t be anything; it is like a ruined house.
Now they build houses and palaces for people in this world. They are beautiful from the outside. And even if it seems like it’s beautiful on the inside but it is ruined. Because it is of no benefit for Akhirah. It darkens one’s inside [heart] because it has no spirituality.
Now we see there are the palaces of people of old times, the non-Muslims. It looks very wonderful from the outside. When you go inside, there is nothing. They are places of heaviness and darkness. Because there is no word of Allah ﷻ. Allah’s ﷻ name is not mentioned. It is made for Dunya. The view is beautiful from the outside, but it is useless on the inside. It darkens one’s inside and it puts people in darkness.
Therefore, the Qur’an is light. The word of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is light. It is the light that illuminates the inside of people. When you enter the mosques and Dergahs of Muslims, it gives you relief, it gives you light with the permission of Allah ﷻ. It does not give darkness. What gives darkness are the useless places. Any place that doesn’t have the Dhikr of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla, no matter how beautiful those places look from the outside or inside, they do not give relief, they give nothing but darkness.
Therefore, if you want to get relief, put the Qur’an inside you, put the word of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla inside you. And we will be illuminated by its light insha’Allah. May Allah ﷻ give us all this light. With light there will be relief and beauty. With darkness there will be hardship, there will be all kinds of badness. May Allah ﷻ protect us.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
