Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here(6:15):
Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
If they ask what is happiness in this world, it is to be in peace. A person at peace has happiness. Wherever he is, he is happy. And this is granted only to those who are together with pious ones on the way of our Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and the Awliyā’. This peace and happiness
we are talking about are only present for those who are on the way of Allāh جل جلاله.
Those who have love for Allāh جل جلاله and love for our Holy Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam
in their hearts and for those who are ṣaḥābah, Ahlu l-Bayt, mashāyikh; all of them are on this
way. Whoever is on this way has a peaceful life and a prosperous ākhirah. Their ākhirah
cannot be prosperous otherwise. People who say, “I will do it myself. I will find a way by
myself,” can never find a way. When there is a guide, people don’t get lost. What we mean
by a guide is that there is a murshid or a guide showing the way in front of them, that way
leads to safety. Otherwise, people who don’t look for such way will be lost. Going here and
there, they will lose their way. They will wander around but won’t reach anywhere. If you
say you can find the way…
In the time of Mūsá ‘alayhi s-salām when he ran away from Egypt, he came to the desert of Sinai. They divided the sea and passed to another side. Pharaoh and his soldiers were destroyed. This is one of the biggest miracles that people can see. They have seen many miracles there, and this one was the greatest miracle in the world. As soon as they passed through the sea, the people rebelled immediately. But the wrath of Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla came upon them. An order came for them to kill themselves. Even after everything was done, they did not obey. They said, “We will find a way.” A great Prophet, ūlū l-‘Azm, Sayyidunā Mūsá ‘alayhi s-salām was guiding them in what to do. Orders were coming directly from Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla: “Come here and you will reach safety. You will be in comfort and find peace.” But they said, “No. We don’t want it. Go away.” So when the wrath of Allāh جل جلاله came upon them, He جل جلاله said “Go away and be lost in this desert.” “How will we get
lost? The desert is here, the path is here. We can go through and out.” They went out in the morning but were in same place in the evening. Morning out, evening same place. A month, a year, forty years they remained there until everyone died. They couldn’t find a way out.
This is because when someone doesn’t follow a perfect person but follows his ego, he gets lost. Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla is showing us this as an example so that we certainly go on the right way with the right people. If you are with bad people, you will either not reach your destination, or get lost. Shukr to Allāh جل جلاله, Allāh جل جلاله put us on the way of Mawlānā Shaykh
Nāẓim. His way is the way of our Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. The way goes on. We will keep on this way, in shā’a Llāh. We will reach safety, in shā’a Llāh. It is the way shown by Allāh جل جلاله. No one can walk on this way as he likes. May Allāh جل جلاله not let us go astray from this way, in shā’a Llāh.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
