No other Ummah was given Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim: Summary of Maulana Shaykh Nazim's Suhbah, 2nd June 2010
Asalamu'alaikum wrh wbkt ....A'uzubillahi minasy syaitan nirrajeem.....Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
1.Maulana began by reciting Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim. He said that the recitation of Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim gave us power and honour, in this world and in the hereafter. In past Suhbahs, Maulana has advocated the reading of at least 100 Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahims daily, as it brings us endless gifts and treasures, depending on our strength of faith and belief in it.
2.On the Day of Resurrection, when Man finally sees, feels and understands the value, power and honours bestowed on reciters of Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim, those who neglected to read it would be filled with regret and dejection. At every spare moment that you have, when you are sitting idly or free from work, keep your tongue moist with Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim. When you recite Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim, all your worldly and heavenly matters will be arranged and organized for you, you will be filled with calmness, peace and happiness – everthing in your life will be prepared for you.
3.Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim is a heavenly sword that can never be defeated. Even if one started explaining the benefits and rewards of reciting Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim from the beginning of life on this planet till Qiyamah, it would only cover a tiny spot of all the holy benefits of that recitation.
4.With Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim, one who is hungry can become full, one who is thirsty, can become quenched. If you but knew the secret power of Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim, you would abandon today's technology, and use Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim instead, because technology is no match for Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim. By reciting Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim, you can achieve anything, without technology. Technology is a tool of shaitan, shaitan uses it to ensnare humans. We have grown dependent on technology, and we can no longer do without it – and whoever is dependent on technology, is therefore dependent on shaitan. A single Saint reciting Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim, is more powerful that the entire technology on earth. Maulana says, seek strength through spirituality, don't live your life under the yoke of shaitan. Don't waste your precious life – you live only once – as a slave of shaitan. Recite Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim constantly and teach its benefits to others!
