The Holy Command: Change Your Lives!
Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani
8 October 2010 Lefke, Cyprus
Suhbah after Khutbat al-Jumu`ah
As-salaamu `alaykum yaa Bani Adam maa bayna mashaariq wa maghaarib. O Mankind, Children of Adam! As-salaamu `alaykum! Dastoor yaa Sayyidee, yaa Rasoolullah. (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Madad yaa RijaalAllah amidoona bi madadikum. (Mawlana Shaykh sits)
O our Attenders! May Allah forgive us, for the honor of His most beloved, honored, and glorified one in His Divinely Presence, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits) Huuuuu. Say, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits) May Allah Almighty forgive us and send to his weak servants heavenly, holy ones who are protecting ummat al-Habeeb, the nation of Sayyidina Muhammad (s). (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits) Now we are saying something from heavenly ones. They are saying, people living in this dunya face a great danger of cursing, and that is the reason that throughout the east and west, north to south, all nations are like wild creatures asking to do their worst. People are thinking to do good things, but are trying to injure, kill, and harm each other, and that is not the honor of Mankind! The Lord of Heavens is asking to dress them in honor and glory, but they are running after Shaytan, who is trying to dress them in wildness, which is so harmful!
O Salafi `ulamas! Where are you? SubhaanAllah, glory for the Lord of Heavens! Why did Allah Almighty just send khabar, news, about those who passed away or of past nations that were punished? Because they did so many bad things that angered Allah Almighty and He sent on them cursing that took them away. For what did Allah Almighty mention so many qissas, stories in the Holy Qur'an about all nations? I am addressing those who are so proud to say, "We are Salafi `ulamas." What is your knowledge? What are you teaching people? Why are you not saying this? I am asking a question. Although I am an ordinary one, a servant, I am asking forgiveness from the Lord of Heavens, our Creator, saying, "O my Lord! Yaa Rabb! I am not arranging my life as You like; please forgive me." That is a very important point, to arrange our lifestyles according to heavenly orders, because that makes the Lord of Heavens pleased with us. That is the most important point for Mankind now.
O Salafi `ulamas! Why are you not making this clear, first for Muslims, how they must arrange their lifestyles to make them acceptable and honored in the Divinely Presence? So many nations passed away, and for every nation Allah Almighty sent a prophet to arrange the lifestyles of His servants! When servants are getting out from those commands, cursing comes on them!
And Allah Almighty said about the Children of Israel, when they became disobedient and refused to arrange their lives as the Lord of Heavens asked, cursing came on them! What happened? So many nations passed away, but we shall speak on it for Salafi `ulamas. Allah Almighty cursed some tribes of the Children of Israel, as was written in the Holy Qur'an, because they did not accept to arrange their lives as the Lord of Heavens asked! Who does not obey, punishment must come on them! Where are you (that is your position), Salafi `ulamas? Where are Azhar ash-Shareef `ulamas? Where are the doctors? I am asking them first, if they are arranging their lives as the Lord of Heavens is asking? Only then they may say to others. If they are not arranging their lifestyles, cursing must come on them! And now because nations are refusing to arrange their lives as the Lord of Heavens is asking, He is going to take all of them!
Why is the story of Noah (a) mentioned, about a flood taking them away? If nations, including the Muslim world, are not arranging their lives according to the Lord of Heavens' order to Sayyidina Muhammad (s), (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits) floods will be sent; not merely flood waters, but fire and blood will come with it! Therefore, they are making me shout to those who are claiming, "We are Salafi `ulamas of the whole Islamic world." They are not given honor from the Heavens. Why are you not calling people to arrange their lives as the Seal of Prophets (s) brought through Shari`atullah? What is "parliament"? Nations that follow that political system of governance will be punished! Say to umarras and mulook that they will be punished with fire and blood. Allah! Tawbah, yaa Rabbee. Tawbah, astaghfirullah. Tawbah, astaghfirullah.
Now throughout this world, people are living for their pleasures and everyone is trying to arrange a special standard of life for themselves, and they will be taken away! Whoever is asking to arrange their lives according to the standard of Islam will be saved and others will be taken away. May Allah forgive us.
O People! It is the first day of Dhul-Qa`dah, the most glorified of holy months. Take care! Try to not arrange your lives as unbelievers are offering. Leave that; even you must change the shirt you are wearing. In your homes, out of your homes, everywhere, you must arrange heavenly commands for your lives, and be as the Lord of Heavens is asking us to be. Try! Even change your shirt. Change yourselves and your out-looking (appearance). Out-looking is important now! Arrange yourselves, men and women. If not, cursing will come on you and no one can save you. May Allah forgive us.
O People! It is enough to know and take respect for Dhul-Qa`dah, Dhul-Hijjah, and Muharram. I don't know what is going to happen in Muharram, but black clouds are appearing from the horizons. We are only mundhir, warners. Hear this warning and think on it! If not, if any curse comes on you no one will give you mercy!
May Allah forgive us. Yaa Rabb. Tawbah, yaa Rabbee. Tawbah, yaa Rabbee. Tawbah, yaa Rabbee. Tawbah, astaghfirullah.
