“Ghulibati r-Rum” (30:2) “Wa Hum Min Ba’di Ghalabihim Sayaghlibun” (30:3) Rum, the Bastion of Kufr. Defeat was Rum, the Bastion of Kufr. They were made to be defeated. Allah Almighty ‘Azza wa Jall said – “Ghulibati r-Rum” (30:2) The Bastion of Kufr was defeated. The Bastion of Kufr was defeated, it cannot be victorious. Absolute Victory is for Allah Almighty. You are Subhan, Sultan O our Lord. Fill our hearts with iman/faith ya Rabbi, so we can love You and keep Your orders. Those who keep Your orders are Your servants. Keep His orders and be a servant to your Lord. “Ghulibati r-Rum”(30:2) The bastion of kufr was defeated. “Wa Hum Min Ba’di Ghalabihim Sayaghlibun”(30:3) They will think that they are victorious, but absolute victory belongs to Allah Dhul Jalal. O our Lord, who can stand in front of Your Magnificence? We are weak servants. Our Mawla is Al-Qadir Al-Muqtadir. May our hearts open up. May our souls open up. “Ghulibati r-Rum” (30:2) Absolute victory, absolute victory belongs to Allah Jalla Jalaluhu Jallat Azamatuhu wa la ilaha ghayruhu illa Hu.

O our Lord, we are Your weak servants. May our hearts widen, may our hearts open and shine. May our hearts be filled with love and longing for You. O our Mawla, Creator of heavens and earth. La ilaha illa Hu. illa Hu. There is no other God. The Only God is Allah Almighty. O our Lord, we want to have the best Adab towards You. We want to run to Your service in front of Your Divine Glory. Let’s open up. May our hearts open up. May our hearts open. Let’s say “Allah” so our hearts will open. Allah, Creator of heavens and earth, what great things He has given us weak servants. He gave us in this world and in the hereafter without measure. He is our Lord. Don’t be afraid. Don’t fear. He appointed you for paradise. You made a mistake and were kicked out. Come back from your mistake. Leave your mistake. Be careful and clean.

O Yaran Shah Mardan. O holy ones, there is no end to the grants, no limits. You loved and created. So let us love also. Let’s love our Creator Mawla. Let’s be filled with love and longing for Him. O our Lord, Owner of heavens and earth, our Lord, Al-Qadir Al-Muqtadir. We want to recognize You, we want to know You. We want to respect and love You, ya Rabbana. Ya Rabbighfir warham wa anta khayr-ur rahimeen. Allah, Owner of heavens and earth, what great things He gave us. Fill our hearts with love and longing for You, ya Rabbana. May we receive love and longing from Yaran Shah Mardan. May our hearts be filled with love for our Lord. That is what we want, O Yaran Shah Mardan.

Our Mawla, Al-Qadir Al-Muqtadir. Our Mawla whose order is between kaf and nun. His orders take place between the letters of kaf and nun. Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar. Forgive us our Lord. Dress us with beauty, our Lord, so we can be beautiful. Say O My servant – Bismillahi r- Rahmani r-Rahim. So I can dress you with dresses of beauty. O My servants, I am the One who dresses you with beauty. He is Allah. He is Al-Qadir Al-Muqtadir. He is our Lord whose grants are without limit to the servants who love. Ask from Him. “Ghulibati r-Rum” (30:2) The disbelievers who represent kufr/disbelief will be defeated, they won’t last. That is the order of heavens. “Ghulibati r-Rum” (30:2) “Wa Hum Min Ba’di Ghalabihim Sayaghlibun” (30:3) The bastion of kufr will be defeated. They will be defeated. They consider themselves victorious, but their victory will not last. “Wa Hum Min Ba’di Ghalabihim Sayaghlibun” (3:31) They will think they are victorious. They will say “we are victorious”. But they are not. They are not.

The Mawla who controls heavens and earth, the Mawla who is Subhan, how can He be defeated? Never! O our Lord, our Subhan, our Sultan, accept us weak servants, O our Lord. “Ghulibati r-Rum” (30:2). The bastion of kufr will be defeated. Their victory cannot last, it will be destroyed. “Wa Hum Min Ba’di Ghalabihim Sayaghlibun” (30:3) O Allah, Owner of heavens and earth, give us strength, give us faith, give us love and longing, O Wealthy Sultan. That is what we want. We want to be among Your armies that are never defeated, MashaAllah. They cannot be defeated. “Wa Hum Min Ba’di Ghalabihim Sayaghlibun” (30:3) O Wealthy Sultan, we are weak. The One who reinforces and sends support to the helpless, weak servants is You, O our Lord. We wait for Your support. He gives everything, He does everything.

May our day be blessed, my son. A blessed day for those who stand at His door, who take His grants and love, who fill with faith. May our day be blessed. May our day be blessed for the sake of our Lord’s favors and generosity. May the Mercy of Allah Dhul Jalal come down from heavens. Don’t be afraid. Don’t fear. “Wa Hum Min Ba’di Ghalabihim Sayaghlibun” (30:3) They will seem victorious, but they are defeated. They will be defeated. The Absolute Victor is Allah Dhul Jalal. O our Lord, we are Your weak servants. Send us support, O our Lord. Heavens and earth belong to You. Give us strength, ya Rabbi. Give power to Your weak servants, ya Rabbi. Allahu Allah, Allahu Rabbi Allahu Allah ma li siwa Hu Hu, Hu. Jalla Jalaluhu, Jalla Jalaluhu, Jallat Azamatuhu. Be happy, be joyful. Victory is with us. Our Lord has granted us. Be happy, be joyful. Let’s be happy. Let’s always be happy. May our love and longing increase every day, my son. Fatiha.

There is no limit to our Lord’s grants. Run to Him, so He can give. He will give. Endless grants, endless favors are from Allah Almighty. Ask and take. He gives. There is no stinginess or misery. He has endless favors and generosity without measure. O our Lord, forgive us. May we be blessed by being servants of Allah Dhul Jalal. How great our Lord, our Lord whose grants and favors have no measure. May our hearts be filled with joy. Allahu Allah, Allahu Allah Allahu Allah, Allahu Allah ma li siwa Hu. There is no one other than Him. O our Lord, there is no end to Your beauty and grants.

May our hearts open, my son. May we be joyful. Let’s not remain as an ant. Open up. You are at the Lord’s door. Open up. Be happy, be joyful. He is our Lord, our Subhan, our Sultan. He won’t leave any distress in our hearts, my son, if you say one Basmala, if you say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim, heavens and earth will tremble. What does He want in return for His grants? Nothing. Ask, ask from your Lord. Your Lord’s grants are without measure. Fatiha.

May your day be blessed, O Yaran Shah Mardan. How beautiful they are, O Yaran Shah Mardan. How nice they are. Allah Almighty dressed them with beauty, with joy. He dressed them with honor. O our Lord, don’t leave us as rubbish, ya Rabbi. Grant us from your Magnificence and Power, even if one drop. You are Glorious. There is no end or measure to Your Glory.
