When One’s Mind Is Taken

Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:


Madad ya RasuluLlah ﷺ. Our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam says when Allah ﷻ wants to make someone do something, He ﷻ takes his mind. The person does it and when he comes back to his senses, he wonders how he did these things. All kinds of things both worldly things and things of Akhirah are like this.

There are some things that people get surprised at how they did them. That is by the will of Allah ﷻ. That thing happens and when people come back to their senses they regret doing it, of course. They wonder how they did it. However, that is the will of Allah ﷻ. Nevertheless, people who regret doing something when they do something bad, if they repent and revert from it, they will earn rewards and Thawab. If not, if they say, “I did right even though I did it without knowing. I did right as I don’t make mistakes”, they will get their punishment.

This is certainly the wisdom of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla, something that Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla knows. Everything has a wisdom in it. The mind cannot access the wisdom of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. The mind cannot reach it. Do not ask why. Submit yourself.

As our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam says “Even I recite AstaghfiruLlah, Tawbah AstaghfiruLlah 70 times a day.” Our Holy Prophet ﷺ doesn’t have any sins. As we have recited in Surat Al-Fath a while ago, Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla says, “We have forgiven your past and future sins”. Even though our Holy Prophet ﷺ didn’t have sins, he ﷺ recited it. So we have to make Istighfar all the time, because we always make mistakes, do wrong and sin being aware or unaware of it. And as we do it, we repent. We regret it. So it is cleaned and gone then. Repentance and forgiveness clean and remove it.

People should not be stubborn. They should not be arrogant. They must bow down to Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. They must be in disgrace in front of Allah ﷻ. People who are in disgrace in front of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla are honored. People who are in disgrace in front of people have no use. Disgrace is in front of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. In front of the Greatness and Magnificence of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla we are disgraced, minor, sinful people. People must say so and always ask for forgiveness. They will attain the pleasure of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla then.

Allah ﷻ doesn’t like arrogance. He ﷻ likes being begged and asked for forgiveness. He ﷻ grants it and He ﷻ changes the committed sins to Thawab. The sins you committed turn into benefit when repent. This is the Greatness and Magnificence of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. It is His ﷻ Mercy to people. Even if they do something unknowingly but then repent and ask for forgiveness, that badness turns into goodness and beauty.

May Allah ﷻ protect us from doing things knowingly and unknowingly. And may He ﷻ forgive us insha’Allah. May He ﷻ not let us get rid of this beautiful character. Allah ﷻ loves At-Tawwabeen, those who seek repentance and ask forgiveness. May He ﷻ make all of us from those beloved servants insha’Allah.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
