Peace is Best!
Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani
2 December 2011 Lefke, Cyprus
Suhbah After Jumu`ah Salaat
(Mawlana Shaykh stands) Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, laa ilaaha illa-Llah. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, wa lillahi 'l-hamd! Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, laa ilaaha illa-Llah. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, wa lillahi 'l-hamd! Allahuma salli `alaa Sayyidina Muhammad wa `alaa aalihi wa saahbihi wa sallam, Sayyid al-awaleen wa’l-akhireen habeebi rabbi’l-`alameen, Thumma as-salaat wa ’s-salaam `alaa saa'iri ’l-anbiyaa wa ’l-mursaleen wa aalihim ajma`een, ij`alhum fee maqam as-sidq, Ya Rabbee, bi jaahi Habeebika ’l-Mustafa arhamna w ’ahdina, w ’asqina, w ’aslih shaanana wa shaan al-muslimeem, bi-jaahi habeebika al-kareem, Ameen.
A`oodhu billah min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. Thumma as-salaat was-salaam `alaa saa'ir il-anbiyaa wa ashaab an-nawba. As-salaam `alaykum yaa `ibaadullah koonoo `abdan lillah, `abeedan lillah! Be servants of Allah, slaves of Allah! (Mawlana Shaykh sits)
O People! Salaam `alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh. Our attenders! Try to be servants of your Lord the Creator, Allah Almighty (swt). (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits) All Eternity is for Him, from pre-Eternal up to Eternal.
O People! Try to learn what it is necessary for you: first of all, to learn that the Lord of Heavens has created everything on Earth and in Heavens, and that His Dominions are never-ending! You must teach to your children first that Allah Almighty created everything in existence and all of us are His servants to whom gave the most high honor! You must first teach your children that the Lord of Heavens granted us to be on Earth as His deputies, which is an endless honor for us! First you must learn who you are, Who created you, what are His commands and orders to us, and what is our mission of servanthood to Him.
وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ
Wa maa khalaqtu ‘l-jinna wa ’l-insa illa li-y`abudoon.
I have only created jinn and men so that they may worship Me. (Surat adh-Dhariyat, 51:56)
The Lord of Heavens is saying “I created jinn and Mankind to serve Me.” Therefore, you must teach your children and everyone that we have been created for our Lord's servanthood! Who does not learn this is Shaytan's deputy, but there is endless honor granted from Allah Almighty if you keep servanthood to Him. If you do not learn this and uphold that honor, you will be servants and deputies of Shaytan! Now the whole world will be divided into two parts: who accept to be honored as servants of the Lord of Heavens, our Creator, and who do not accept. These days Shaytan runs stronger after Mankind to make them his servants and the majority of people are following him, asking to be his deputies, while only a handful of people accept to be servants of their Lord, Allah Almighty!
(Mawlana Shaykh stands) O our Lord! Accept our servanthood as we are running to You! O our Lord!
Protect us, as we are weak servants, and keep us to be Your servants forever! We seek that honor and nothing else! (Mawlana Shaykh sits)
The most high honor for us is to be His servants, for which He grants Paradise for all Eternity! Who does not accept will be sent to hells to remain there forever. Amaan yaa Rabb, because now people don’t know this and don’t keep their honor! Huuuu. Shaytan incites them to quarrel and fight each other, to be enemies to one another, as that will destroy everything here on Earth. Now every country, every territory serves Shaytan; whatever he orders them they ask to fulfill even more! His declaration to Mankind is to kill everyone and destroy everything on Earth, and now everywhere we see Mankind is prepared to do that. We are asking for forgiveness.
Allah Almighty is saying:
w ’as-sulhu khayr,
Peace is best (an-Nisaa, 4:128)
But Shaytan says to all Mankind, “No, fighting is best!” What for? Fighting, killing and destroying everything. Shaytan teaches to ignore Allah's Order for peace on Earth. The Lord of Heavens, our Creator, advises His servants, “Don't do harm or kill anyone!" That is forbidden! The Lord of Heavens says, “The punishment for killing someone (unjustly) is to be in Hellfire forever."
Allah Almighty is never happy about His creatures being harmed, and says, “O people! You must keep the best way to be the best ones." Who is on the best way is among the best ones in the Divine Presence. Who harms others, and who are killers or murderers are Shaytan’s servants and they will be punished in hells forever!
O Mankind! Come, listen and accept Allah Almighty's advice to you or you will regret!
O Rabbee! This is Your holy month, Muharram al-Haraam, and it is the first Friday. We are asking Allah Almighty to send us heavenly armies to take away Shaytan and its armies. We are waiting and expecting Mahdi (a) to come, and then Jesus Christ to come (a), and then there is going to be a sulh, peace on Earth!
Allah Almighty asks His servants to be peaceful and to live happy lives. Shaytan asks people to harm each other and destroy everything. May Allah forgive us, for the honor of this holy month in which He always gives His support for good ones. At the end of this Muharram al-Haraam, we are expecting ta`eed, heavenly support and blessings to reach good ones, the true servants of Allah, to reach the highest honor and to take away Shaytan and its followers.
O People! Hear and listen and obey what Allah Almighty says in the four holy books, including the last one, Qur’an `Azheemu ’sh-shaan. May Allah forgive us. Look after yourselves once again, to know if you are following our Lord or following Shaytan and his agents.
May Allah forgive us and bless you and give you from His endless Mercy Oceans, for the honor of the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s)! (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits)
Yaa Rabbee! Adkhilna bi-rahmatika ma`a `ibaadika ’s-saaliheen ija`lana fee hirzika wa hifzhika wa kanafika wa amaanika. Ya Rabbee ya Allah. Nahnu `abeedika ad-du`afa, qawwi da`fana bi-iqbaalik as-saaliheen bi jaahi man anzalta `alayhi Suratu ’l-Fatihah.
O People! This short declaration is enough for everyone. You must learn what is necessary for you and not to read so many books (to find guidance). This is a summary of what they are making me address to you and to whole Mankind.
