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

Inna lillaih wa inna ilaihi rajiun. Astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah al-azim wa atubu ilaih. We are asking forgiveness from our Lord Allah subhana wa ta’ala. He has created us for His service. But the 21st Century people are leaving that service. That’s the service with honor but today’s people lost their direction, lost their compass, lost their way. But Allah subhana wa ta’ala is saying, `Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi rajiun. You are coming from Allah and you are returning back to Allah. Run anywhere you want. Returning there.

`Eh, this happened to the man and he died.’

Why did he die? The day is 24 hours. In that 24 hours Allah subhana wa ta’ala granted the children of Adam (as) 24,000 breaths of life. 24,000 in each 24 hours. Every time you are taking that air in you are moving one step forward to your grave. That’s why Allah subhana wa ta’ala is sending prophets to the children of Adam (as) teaching them how to live, why to live and what’s the reason of life. Not like today’s people, heedlessly running after emptiness. Eh, we understand when the unbelievers are running after emptiness. What about the believers? What about the Muslims? Muslims lost their guide. They left the guide. Who’s the guide? Muhammad salatu wa salam. They left him.

They say, `I know only Allah.’

That’s what Sheytan said. When Allah said to him, `Make Sejdah to Adam’, he said, `No, I am not making Sejdah. I only make Sejdah to You.’ Not understanding? Not waking up? He was making Sejdah everywhere, worshipping non-stop. He became disobedient to one order. When Allah said to him, `Make Sejdah to Adam’, he said, `No! I am making Sejdah to You.’ That word put him out from Paradise to Hell. Are we understanding anything? Yes, we are not understanding anything because the 20th Century and the 21st Century people lost the faith, faith in Allah and His Prophet (sws) and faith in Akhirat. Lost. You have to run after this world, for what running? What is the reasoning? We must know. We must know where we are running and why we are running after it? Because the West came out with so many wrong ideas, sheytanic ideas, the East, Muslim countries adapting that, democracy, kemocracy, hypocrisy…eh, run after them. Everyone is running, `I am going to go for election, selection, delection, deleting, finished!

Allah subhana wa ta’ala is creating us for His service. Nothing else, saying, `I am giving you life that is counted. Every breath of life that you are taking in and out is counted. Don’t spend it in the wrong place. Spend it in the right place. This dunya is temporary. As soon as the angel of death is coming, when the life is finishing and the last breath is being taken, the veil is taken away too. And then you are seeing the angels too. You are seeing everything you did.

`Oh! I made a mistake.’

It’s too late. The life is now, inside, that Allah is granting, saying to us, `You may do, you may fill your life with mountains of mistakes or wrongdoings. Don’t lose hope from your Lord. Turn your face back to your Lord and ask forgiveness. And you will find Him forgiving you. He may turn those wrong things into good things for you and you will be rewarded in the Judgment Day.’ But when the last breath is coming it’s too late now. It’s too late to say, `I am turning now’ because when the veil is removed you are going to see everything.

So now is the time. Now is the time to know where you are running and why you are running. You are running after what? If you are running to change this world, the authority is not given to you. It is not in your hand. The authority is in the hand of Allah subhana wa ta’ala. If He is allowing this to happen then you must know that, `I must correct myself.’ Those ones also who are in authority, they know what they are doing. They are not interfering. They are watching what the Holy Prophet (sws) is saying. They are letting things to happen. Every word that the Holy Prophet (sws) has said, it must happen, it’s going to happen, it has happened.

So top-speed its running towards that way but as the Holy Prophet (sws) said, `Ahir Zaman, in the end of the times Jababirah is coming, Jababirah is going to rule, the tyrants are going to rule. If you are reaching to that time, don’t run forward. Allah subhana wa ta’ala has given some time to the unbelievers to rule this world. If you are living in that time, don’t run forward thinking that you are going to change anything. Until that time is up you cannot do anything. If you are running forward then something is going to happen to you too. My advice to you for that time is, be patient and keep the Haqq. Be with the true ones. Keep the truth. Nothing else. Save yourself, prepare yourself for Akhirat.’

No man can change this mess now. The man must be supported through heavens and that man is about to come. Where is the Ummat? The Ummat is sleeping. It’s not even accepting, it’s not even waiting. A handful here and a handful there, `Eh, I am accepting, expecting’. Accepting but still running to the dirtiness of this world. That is not the acceptance. Allah is not accepting that kind of acceptance. Prepare yourself, fill yourself up with that energy, your heart and wait for that day. That day is coming.

So Allah subhana wa ta’ala is granting the life and sending prophets to us to show us how to use this life. The Prophet (sws), if we are following his orders, if we are using the world also the way that he has ordered, then no sickness and no wrong things will come around us. But we are not listening to the Prophet (sws). We are just listening to our own ego again, or the advisors. The ego’s advisor is Sheytan. Listening to that one. And Muslim nations are listening to unbelievers, running to find safety from the unbelievers. What kind of mentality is this? Allah sent the safety to us saying, `Hold on tightly to the prophets and what they brought to you.’

`What that Prophet (sws) brought to you, take it!’ He is ordering. `What he forbid you from, stop it!’ With this ayat He is giving full authority to the hand of the Prophet (sws). If we are not taking it, it’s not the Prophet (sws) who’s going to lose. We are the one’s who are losing. Eh, the majority of the people today, the Muslims are sick non-stop twenty-four hours. Unusual sicknesses. It shouldn’t happen to Muslims but it’s happening because the Muslims are living a lifestyle just like the unbelievers. It’s not accepted.

When the Holy Prophet (sws) sent the Nama-i Sharif, invitation to the kings, he sent one to Egypt, to the king of the Guptis. He accepted it. He kissed it, he put it on top of his head and in return he sent presents to the Holy Prophet (sws). He sent some Jariyyas, sent some other things and sent some doctors to the Prophet (sws). The Prophet (sws) said, `These ones we may use but doctors we don’t need.’ The doctors said, `Our king is paying us for this, that we should be here, watching, if anybody is sick then free of charge we have to look after them. `Eh, as you like’, he said, `Stay’. And they were staying, one day, one month, one year, two years, three years, nothing was happening. The head of them was coming saying, `Ya Muhammad (salatu wa sallim), we are not your enemy. We cannot do any harm to you.’ And the Holy Prophet (sws) was saying, `We know.’ He said, `But your people are not coming. They are not coming to us.’ He said, `They are not coming to you because they are not getting sick.’ He said, `How can it be? We don’t have time to scratch our head in our country. Everyone is sick. Here in the desert in this situation they are not getting sick?’ The Holy Prophet (sws) said, `They are not getting sick because they are obeying their Prophet (sws). They are living according to what their Prophet (sws) is teaching them. So they are not getting sick.’

We are getting sick non-stop. Of course, in America everything, in the West everything is built on what? The whole economy and the whole thing is built on building weapons and medicine. The ones that they cannot kill with the weapons, they will kill it with the medicine.

`Eh, I have a headache. I go to a doctor. I have this, I go to a doctor.’

Go to a doctor and you don’t come out. Taking all your money too. Huh, you are not spending your money the way Allah is ordering. Good. They are going to get it that way and you are not going to get any blessing. You are going to stay sick and no cure for that sickness.

How can it fit to a believer to be sick all the time? There are exceptions that Allah is testing some people. That is a different story. But now from the time that they are born until they are going to die, so many machines. You go to a hospital, ten, fifteen machines everywhere sucking, saying, `Shh, stay quiet. He is sick.’ He is not sick, he is dead. They are checking his account. There’s still money inside. They say, `Give him air.’ His chest is going up and down until the money finishes. Then they take it out saying, `It’s finished.’ Don’t fall into the hand of the doctors. Then you will be no good for dunya and you will be no good for Akhirat. You are no good for this dunya to run after it, you are no good for Akhirat to sit over there to make zikir, to remember and to worship your Lord. You are no good for anything then. Why that one is going to live? For what reason?

So these sicknesses of 21st Century are not the physical sicknesses. They are the sicknesses that we have fallen into the wrong directions and under the name of faith we changed our faith and started believing differently. We started running in different ways, we are adapting the lifestyle of the unbelievers in our daily lives, in our houses. That’s what we are doing. That’s why non-stop we are in trouble. It’s about time for believers to wake up, to stand up, to say, `Ya Rabbi! We did mistakes and we are asking for forgiveness. Keep us in Sirat-ul Mustaqim.’ Praying five times a day at least forty Fatiha you are reciting. In every Fatiha you are reciting, `Keep us in Sirat-ul Mustaqim. Don’t make us like the Jews and the Christians.’ That’s what you are saying, `Keep us in Sirat-ul Mustaqim’. But we are saying that and as soon as the prayer finishes, running outside and the same lifestyle again, non-stop, twenty-four hours until the angel of death is coming.

The angel of death is going to come. It didn’t come to you. It is going to come to you. It is going to come to me. `Every life that We have given is going to taste death’, Allah subhana wa ta’ala is saying. Isa (alayhi salam) is coming. He is going to come back to this world. He is going to taste death. One of the biggest reason of his coming, he is going to taste death.

So, we are in the Ahir of Ahir Zaman. We reached to the last days. There isn’t too much left of our lives, there isn’t too much left of this dunya and there isn’t too much left for the Judgment Day. That has never happened from the day of creation. From the day that Allah subhana wa ta’ala created everything until now, it didn’t happen. It’s going to happen. The last days are approaching. The Holy Prophet (sws) is saying, `Between me and the Last Day there is only one and a half day left.’ One day is a thousand years, half day is five hundred years. He said, `Between me and the Last Day is only one and a half day left.’ Between the Prophet (sws) and us now fourteen hundred some years. Did we reach to the end? If we are believing on the Prophet (sws) then you must say yes. You are not saying yes, eh, believe the scientists. That’s what they are saying to you also. They cannot say to you anything else. `This is what’s going to happen and that is what’s going to happen.’ It’s going to happen. It’s happening, the signs of the last days.

But still the heedless Muslims… I am not talking to unbelievers, unbelievers are unbelievers, the Muslims are believing in the Last Day, the Judgment Day. They are believing that they are going to be raised to the Judgment Day, they are going to be questioned. Still running after this world so much like that, is not accepted, is not too intelligent and when you compare it to the faith, that kind of faith is not going to make you to pass through the Sirat. Faith, you have to hold on tightly to the faith. That’s the only thing the believers have. Nothing else. That’s the only value that we have, to be able to say that Shahadat, to be able to live according to that Shahadat, to be able to go out from this world with that Shahadat, to enter to the grave with that Shahadat, to get up to go to the Judgment Place with that Shahadat. If you are going short, you lost.

Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi rajiun, as Allah subhana wa ta’ala is saying, we are coming from Allah, we are returning back to Allah. You must keep this alive in yourself twenty-four hours a day. Then your vision of looking at this world changes completely. Your thinking changes completely. Passing next to cemeteries, don’t run away! Stay and look and say, `Ey you ego, you are running around but you are going to be that one. If it is not tomorrow, the next day, the next year. Don’t forget!’ Remind yourself before the angel of death is coming.

Wa min Allahu tawfiq

Bihurmatil Fatiha.
