The Peak of Civilization in the 21st Century
Mawlana Shayklh Nazim al-Haqqani
13 December 2011 Lefke, Cyprus
(Translated from Arabic)
A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani ‘r-rajim. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem. SubhaanAllah, the worst of enemies to Mankind is the ego, but people do not think and that is astonishing! SubhaanAllahi ‘l-`Aliyyu 'l-`Azheem. Laa ilaaha illa-Llah Sayyidina Muhammadan Rasoolullah.
(Mawlana Shaykh stands.) Yaa Rabbee! Spare us and grant us the strength to worship and obey You. Bestow upon Your Beloved Prophet more praises, more honor, and more heavenly lights and pleasure. If it was not for the association of rijaalAllah, the Men of Allah, life would not be; it would be a wasted life. (Mawlana Shaykh sits)
SubhaanAllah, human beings are seldom thankful! People think the life of dunya is to come and go, but only a few think about the reality of dunya and what it carries from different types of ferocious animals, some of which can fly, some swim, or some run. However, human beings in our time are no longer using their brains to think. Most people are being ridden by their egos and by Shaytan. Shame on most of them!
Allah (swt) said:
He created Man. (ar-Rahman, 55:3)
Allah (swt) created Adam, as He is the Creator. There is no Creator except Allah (swt); they do not think! The Prophet (s) said:
تفكر ساعة خير من عبادة سبعين سنة
tafakkarru sa`atan khayrun min `ibaadati saba`een sannah.
To remember Allah (swt) for one hour (contemplate or meditate) is better than seventy years of worship.
