Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
Allah ﷻ gives Barakah for our Majlis. We are here for the sake of Allah ﷻ, for His ﷻ pleasure. And this gathering, Majlis is a Majlis that Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla loves. Majlis Talabu l-I’lm, Asking for knowledge. This is what Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla likes the most; like here. And He ﷻ makes the wings of angels under your feet.
AlhamduliLlah our intention our whole life is to get knowledge. Because knowledge is an endless ocean. You cannot say, “I know everything. I got everything. I am perfect.” You cannot say this. Because each time, you learn a new thing. A good thing or not a good thing, you will learn. But for us, it is also good to know if it is good or not good. Maybe sometimes you learn something that you think is good but it’s not good, not acceptable for Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla and Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. This is our scale for what’s good and what’s not good. So you can learn what’s good. If not good, you would’ve learnt the opposite. It is two kinds: it must be either good or not good. Sometimes there’s the between; also you must know what is in between, what doesn’t harm, what is bad, what is not good and what is in between. We must learn all of this. There’s no problem to ask anybody. Because we are seeing that many people are learning from non-Muslims. They learn something good for the benefit of Islam and Muslimin. It can be, no problem. Because if you are not learning and you are ignorant, you will be in need for people to rule you and to make you under their command.
This is what happened in the end of the time of the Ottomans. Because many people said, “You cannot learn from this.” So they made people to be ignorant and after that they sent students to learn in Europe. These students, unfortunately, didn’t learn good things. They learned only bad things and they destroyed the Ottoman Empire, the Muslim Empire, Khalifah (Caliph). We don’t have any Khalifah now because of these people who were learning not good things.
So we must learn what is good and what is not good. There’s no problem. As we said, look for your children, for your son and daughter. What they are doing, what they are reading, what they are teaching them. We must be careful. It is not a joke. Because we are living in a time when it is all Fitnah time. They are cheating people in everything. They are saying, “You are wrong” to pure Muslims. “How are we wrong! We are doing the same as our fathers were doing.” His father is also doing what his grandfather was doing. All of this that’s coming was all wrong and these people are going on the wrong way? No. This is just to put – Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla described them: ‘الْوَسْوَاسِ الْخَنَّاسِ’, ‘Al-waswāsi l- khannās’, ‘The retreating whisperer.’ (Qur’ān 114:04). To put in their minds doubt and to destroy their belief, their Iman.
So what has happened is that they are making people who are claiming they are following Shari’ah to destroy Shari’ah the first thing. They are not sincere. They are some kind of a bad thing like virus coming to Islam and making many Muslims only Muslim, not Mu’min (believer). Mu’min is who believes. The Muslim is who said Kalimah Shahadah: “Ashhadu an la ilaha illa Allah, wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan Abduhu Wa Rasuluhu.” They don’t believe in the miracles of Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. And they don’t believe in the holy things; what Allah ﷻ made holy. They do not believe in this. They do not believe in the Hadith. They do not believe in Madhhab. And Tariqah: this is what they deny from the beginning. So there is nothing to defend Islam against this because they made people not believe in everything of these.
We are seeing, as Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam said, “In the end of times you will be many, a very big number of Muslims, Muslimin, but you won’t have any value. You will be like the tide of the sea.” When the wave comes to the shore, it makes bubbles. So you think it is something but after five seconds everything finishes and nothing is left. Our Muslims are like this now. There’s no value for them. Nobody cares about them.
The real value is with belief, with Iman. So to be Muslim you must have this belief. Our belief is to accept the unseen things. What are the unseen things? First, Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. Second, the angels; they are also unseen. This is the belief of the Mu’min, believer. This is belief. Iman means belief. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. The angels. After that, the Jinns also. After that, the belief in the Last Day. To believe that you will come again to this world in your body. On the Day of Resurrection, Allah ﷻ will make you alive again and this life is forever. This is what they believe. And there are still many things that we can say from what’s unseen; what you must believe without seeing. There are many things.
But these people are making people not accept this because they don’t have belief, they are only speaking with their mouths. Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam says that in the end of times, there will be a kind of people who read the Qu’ran and know the Qu’ran by heart – better than [us], I don’t know the Qu’ran by heart – they know the Qur’an, they know the Hadith, they know everything. But Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam is looking here and saying, this belief only reaches here [their throats], it doesn’t go down further than their mouths. There is no belief down in their hearts. There is nothing in their hearts. And they are going out of Islam like the arrow goes out from the bow. This is what Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam is saying. They know but they don’t believe. They know the Qur’an by heart. They know thousands of Hadiths. They know all the books of miracles of prophets and Karamat of ‘Awliya, but they don’t believe.
And they are spreading this through Muslim communities. People are becoming ill with this virus, and after that many of them go without Iman, without belief to Akhirah. Because they are not accepting anything of what Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam is saying about Shafa’ah (intercession), about help from Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam and from Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. They are claiming they can survive without this, but nobody can survive without this. Especially these people who are denying; how can they survive and they are not accepting all of this? They will directly go to hell. There isn’t any chance for them. We are trying hard to explain this but they are not accepting. Those who don’t accept will regret it. They will know and see the reality that there is no benefit from what they are doing.
So we are asking Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla to protect Muslims, to protect youngsters, to protect men and women from this Fitnah. It is the most difficult Fitnah. And we are seeing everywhere, they are only imitating non-Muslims. Everything non-Muslims are doing, they are imitating them. Especially that Islam is the religion of mercy, religion of justice, religion of obeying Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. But they are doing against this. They have no mercy, no justice, nothing. Everything that can be and they can do is for the benefit of their way, for benefiting themselves.
But Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is with us, against them. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla does not love these people. ‘لَا يُحِبُّ الْمُفْسِدِينَ’, ‘La Yuhibbu l-Mufsidin’, ‘Allah does not like corrupters.’ (Qur’ān 28:77). These are Mufsidin, which means who destroy people, destroy Muslims, destroy humans. May Allah ﷻ give them insha’Allah ‘Islah (improvement) because there are many people cheated by them. But those who are the heads of them are not cheated, they are only shaytan. They are shaytan. They know what they are doing. Destroying Islam: this is their project. But Allah ﷻ will be with us; He ﷻ is with us. He ﷻ will punish them insha’Allah.
May Allah ﷻ give good understanding to people. For this, Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam says: “ تَفَكُّرَ سَاعَةٍ خَيْرٌ مِنْ عِبَادَةِ سَبْعِينَ سَنَةٍ”, “Tafakkur sā‘atin khayrun min ‘ibādati sab‘īn sanah.” To think good thinking for one hour is better than worshipping for 70 years. [Whether] these people are worshipping for 70 years or 70,000, there’s no profit, it is not good for anybody. But if they think and accept reality, it will be better for them and for other people also.
For this, from the beginning we were saying, you must learn. You must learn everything. You must especially learn history, since 100 years or more than 100 years; 120 or 150 or 200 years. This project of Kufr: every time a new one, every time a new one comes to destroy Islam. But the worst one was the last one which is making people to be confused and think if we are right or they are right. AlhamduliLlah we are right, don’t worry. May Allah ﷻ protect you. May Allah ﷻ send our Sultan, Mahdi ‘alayhi s-salam to show them who is real and who is not real insha’Allah.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
