The Secret of Our Souls

30 September by Mawlana Sheikh Muhammad Adil Ar-Rabbani


Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here(4:47):

Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

Peygamber Efendimiz ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam is saying: “Al-arwāḥu junūdun mujannadatun famā ta‘ārafa minhā i’talaf, wa-mā tanākara minhā ikhtalaf.” Ṣadaqa Rasūla Llāh fī-mā qāl aw kamā qāl, Our souls are like soldiers. When Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla created us in preeternity on the day of Qālū Balá, there were souls. We were not there. We were not there physically. In the beginning, Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla created souls. Some of the souls there liked each other and got along very well. It is the same when they come to this world. In this world, you like some people and dislike other people. Some people love each other, some of them hate each other. This is their condition.

By the wisdom of Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla, when souls were created, a promise was taken from all of them regarding who would be a willing servant of Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla. Everyone recognized Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla and said they accepted Him جل جلاله. But when they came to this world, they said they didn’t know Him جل جلاله. They broke their promise. There cannot be familiarity with people who don’t keep their promise. There cannot be admiration for them. Therefore, this beautiful word of our Holy Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam says sometimes someone doesn’t get along with another person. He doesn’t know why he doesn’t get along well, and says it doesn’t come from his heart. This means they met in the spiritual world and didn’t like each other, or hated each other then. When they are physically in this world, such souls cannot get along well, either. They cannot stand each other. They become enemies. It is the same for all people in this world. Both Muslims and non-Muslims have such situations.
Therefore, may Allāh جل جلاله make us love good people, in shā’a Llāh, because it is a great favour.

It is the wisdom of Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla. We cannot interfere in that wisdom. Asking why and how is not from adab. It is neither from adab, nor from any protocol, to ask this question. Some people think they can ask everything. Some things pertain to Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla and things He جل جلاله knows Himself. They say His جل جلاله wisdom can’t be questioned. It is a beautiful saying. This is our condition. It is against adab to question one’s condition. And it weakens people’s īmān. May Allāh جل جلاله protect us, they may lose their īmān. In shā’a Llāh, be with good people. Good people are beloved servants of Allāh جل جلاله. Protect them and be together with them. Don’t be against them. There can be familiarity with people on the way of our Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, and the way of Allāh جل جلاله. And we ask that Allāh جل جلاله gives guidance to the rest, in shā’a Llāh.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
