Who Has Mind Is Mukallāf

Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:

لَا يُكَلِّفُ اللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا

(Qur’ān 02:286). ‘La yukallifu Llahu nafsan illa wus’aha’, ‘Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity.’ Ṣadaqa Llāhu l-‘Aẓīm. Allah ﷻ gave mind to mankind. And He ﷻ ordered things they should do along with this mind. They are Mukallāf for this. Mukallāf means they are obliged to do it; they are obliged to carry out the orders of Allah ﷻ. It is an obligation. It is not a game to say, “I will do it” or “I will not do it”. You can avoid doing it. However, Allah ﷻ has ordered it, so you are obliged to do it.

If you cannot do it; then, who is not Mukallāf and obliged? Animals or insane, crazy people – they are exempt. They have no sins. Because “إِذَا أَخَذَ مَا أَوْهَبَ أَسْقَطَ مَا أَوْجَبَ”, “If He took what He has granted, He drops what He has obligated” It is a rule of Fiqh. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla says, if Allah ﷻ didn’t give something to someone, the Fard and Wajib things are not asked from him. But the rest will be questioned. How did you live? What did you do? Are you on the way of Allah ﷻ? Are you on another way, the opposite way of shaytan? Mankind will be asked all of these.

So Allah ﷻ gave mind to people. They must use their minds in everything they do in this world. They must look if the way is like Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla wants it or like shaytan wants it to be. They must pay attention to whichever is good. And they must stay away from the way of shaytan. They must not be together with shaytan, because its end is disappointment. The end is endless misfortune and badness.

The way is just one way. Because the next life is the main life, the eternal life which is after death. Allah ﷻ gives according to what people do. Otherwise, who are on the way of Allah ﷻ will be saved. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla didn’t give mind to use it in bad ways. Whatever logic there is, it is on the way of Allah ﷻ. Illogical things are on the way of shaytan.

Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla gave this blessing to people: the mind. The mind is a blessing. Whoever uses this blessing benefits from it. Who doesn’t use it and say, “I am not Mukallāf” – Those not Mukallāf, as we said, are insane people only. May Allah ﷻ give us mind and understanding, as we always say, so that we know how to act right. May we take what is beneficial for us. May we leave useless things and stay away from them insha’Allah.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.

There are recited Khatms by everyone. They recited last week and have been reciting since a while. We have gifted all of them. The Qur’an Khatms, Yasin, Surahs, Ayat, Tasbihat, Tahlilat, Salawat, whatever they have recited, we gift all of them to soul of our Holy Prophet ﷺ, his Ahlu l-Bayt and Sahabah, to the souls of all Anbiya, Awliya, Asfiya and holy ones, especially our Shaykh Mawlana Shaykh Nazim and Hajjah Anne, to the souls of all of our late relatives. May those who’ve recited reach their good goals. May they have strength of Iman insha’Allah. May they be happy here and hereafter. Li-Llahi Ta’ala l-Fatiha.
