Jum’a mubarak – Glædelig fredag

Auzu billahi min ash-sheytanir rajim
Medet Ya Seyyidi Sultanul Awliya, Medet.

Alhamdulillah, astaghfirullah, shukr Ya Rabbi, that He has created us
from the children of Adam (as) and not from monkey, donkey or from the
animal world. Easily He can change it. Those who aren’t happy that
Allah created them and He is giving them the highest title of being
human, and sending us to this world making us to be His
representatives in this world. And if we are not carrying it then this
is a very dangerous thing waiting for us. Our form is human. Our
spirit must be human. Our actions must be human. Everything must be
human. From where are we learning this? We have to take example. The
Holy Prophet (sws). He came and he taught us how to live with our own
selves, how to live with our community, how to live with the people.
If we are not learning that then still we have long ways to go.

So Allah subhana wa ta’ala is saying to us in so many ayats. In so
many ayats He is saying to us, `Through patience and prayers, patience
and prayers, patience and prayers’, mentioning them together. And He
is saying in one ayat in Surat-ul Baqara, `Through patience and prayer
ask help from your Lord.’ Through patience, keeping the prayers and
asking help. Who is it that we need to ask then? Whatever you need.
Whatever is necessary that you are finding that, `I am not getting rid
of this wrong thing that I have, this wrong action that I have.’
Through patience and prayers. Patience! Up till when? Up till the grave.

Don’t think that the patience is something that when something
happens, you are blowing up, you are showing your anger, you are
putting fire out, later you are getting used to the situation and you
are cooling down and you are calling that patience? That is not
patience. Patience is to show how you are carrying it when the first
initial is happening to you. How you are swallowing it. Why are you
blowing up? It is not good for your ego. That’s why. It is not the
spirit. It is not good for the ego. Ego doesn’t like it. Are you the
servant of Allah or the servant of your ego? That action is showing.
You can say as much as you want then. You can say, `I am the servant
of the Lord.’ The action speaks.

So now the Holy Prophet (sws) is saying to us… now we are talking
about only this world because today’s man is only understanding this
world, worrying about this world, worrying, `What am I going to eat
today, what am I going to wear tomorrow, how am I going to be the next
day, where am I going to enjoy myself?’ This is it. This is the only
worrying. East, west, north and south, exception is only a handful of
people. This is the only worrying of the majority. They are going to
masjids and this is what they are worrying, they are praying and this
is what they are worrying.

This should be the last worry for the believers. The believers should
have worry for Akhirat, not for Dunya, because this is only a
temporary life. But we are not learning how to live in this temporary
life. How are you going to put patience in you then? You are not
accepting the reality that Allah subhana wa ta’ala is in control in
everything. Yes, once you know that, once you submit yourself to that,
the patience is going to come with it. You are going to think right
away, `In this situation that is happening, it is not my will, it is
the will of Allah subhana wa ta’ala. If there is something wrong in
it, it is my ego. I am putting my ego in it. I must pull myself, my
ego out.’ And that ego is the most dangerous thing, the Holy Prophet
(sws) is saying to us.

Holy Prophet (sws) is saying to us, `Anything that your ego desires
and likes, that is a road to hell. That’s enough to show to you that
you are on the road going towards hell. Anything that your ego doesn’t
like, that it comes hard to you, that is the road to Paradise.
Continue on that road.’ So what are we understanding from this ayat
now? One more. Jibreel (alayhi salam) asked Allah subhana wa ta’ala.
He wanted to see Paradise, he wanted to see hell, he wanted to see
everything. When he saw hell he said, `Ya Rabbi, there’s no single man
who is going to enter into this hell.’ When he saw the paradise he
said, `There is no single human who is not going to want to be in this
Paradise. They are going to do whatever it takes to enter to this
Paradise.’ Then Allah is saying to Jibreel (as), `Look at the road
from Dunya reaching to Paradise.’ When he looked at that road he said,
`Ya Rabbi, it is impossible for a man to pass through this difficult
road to enter to Your Paradise.’ He (swt) said, `Look at the road
entering to hell.’ When he looked at it, he said, `It is impossible
for any man to escape himself. This road is going to lead them to
hell.’ Then Allah is saying, `Except those that I protect. They are
going to find that road and they are going to enter to that Paradise.’

So who are those ones? Those ones that Allah is saying in the ayat,
`Through patience and prayers they are asking help from their Lord.’
First we have to learn how to ask help. Yes, today so many people are
coming asking for help.

`Dua Sheykh!’

Eh, I don’t know how much my dua is going to work. Sometimes maybe
it’s working, one says to the other ones and everyone is coming
saying, `Dua for me Sheykh, Dua for me.’ I have not found one person
yet, coming to me and say to me, `Dua for me Sheykh for my Akhirat
life. Pray for me for my Akhirat life.’ Everyone is coming to me for
dua, `Dunya, dunya, dunya, dunya.’ Huh!

So now if we are so busy with this Dunya then how we are going to see
the Akhirat? We are already in this Dunya. We are in it. This Dunya is
occupying us twenty-four hours. You cannot escape. Let your spirit at
least to be in Akhirat, to be longing to the Akhirat. If the person is
twenty-years of age and he didn’t understand, then at twenty-five
years of age he at least has to understand that this Dunya is a trap.
Whoever comes in it, one day he falls in that ambush and he falls down
underneath. Don’t you see? If you don’t see then go to graves and you
will see. You can walk around everywhere in the world. One day you are
going to step somewhere underneath which is empty. You are going to go
there. It is a trap! It is a trap to us.

And Allah subhana wa ta’ala who made this trap, He is giving us a
warning, saying to us, `This is a trap to you. And the only way to
escape from this trap is to turn your face towards Me. Ask help from
Me. And I am sending you a living guide. Look at that one how he was
living. Then you will find safety from that trap. Put your life in
alignment with that one, that Prophet (sws) who came to teach you.’
Yes. `And those ones that the Prophet (sws) left behind, hold on
tightly to them. They will lead you there.’

So inshaAllah, this much should be enough for us if we don’t hear
anything. For believers, if we believe these words, should be enough
for us until Judgment Day to shake ourselves to say, `What is it that
I’m doing?’

`Oh! When the Akhirat is going to be? It so long!’

What long? Maybe tomorrow. Maybe Azrail is preparing for tonight.
Maybe Azrail is preparing for five minutes later.

`Sheykh ask for our young ones to have a nice life.’

He doesn’t listen, young one, old one, sick one, cured one. Doesn’t
listen. The time comes, you go. When your name calls, you cannot say
no. You can say no, screaming and saying as much as you want. Today’s
people are screaming, yes. As soon as something happens to them,
running top-speed, twenty-four hours to the doctors. The second house
is the hospital for them. They are thinking that there’s going to be
help reaching there when Azrail is coming. It cannot. It’s not.

Don’t think now that I am telling you, `Don’t go to hospitals.’ So
many people are weird these days. They are taking the words and
changing to the other ways. If it’s necessary then you are going to.
But don’t run to think that the hospital is going to give you life.
Know that you may get cured from your sicknesses in the hospital and
as soon as you come out from the hospital, if your time is up then
Azrail is going to reach you there. Know that. Know that yes, you may
have a heart attack and you may have so many doctors in these days and
they may put you on the operation tables and when they are working on
you don’t depend on that doctor a hundred percent. If you do then he
may be the best doctor in this world but he may have a heart attack
while he is doing a heart operation on you. He may.

So now we must put ourselves and we must wake up while good days are
going, and to listen and to understand. And next time I am not going
to say that again to you.

Astaghfirullah al-Azim wa atubu ilaih.
La hawla wa la quwwata illa billahil aliyyil azim.

These words are for you and for me.

Wa min Allahu tawfiq

Bihurmatil Habib

Bihurmatil Fatiha.
