بِسۡمِ اللهِ الرَّحۡمٰنِ الرَّحِيۡمِ
Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi (QS), Sohbet of the 4th of January, 2011.
Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm.
Today is the beginning of Ṣafar. It is both the start of Ṣafar and a solar eclipse on Tuesday. May Allāh ﷻ make the end of mankind good. These are among the small signs of Qiyāmah. We seek refuge in Allāh ﷻ. And the third is hard. [Tuesday is the third day of the week] You should recite three shahādah and 300 astaghfiru Llāh every day. And give ṣadaqah. In shā’a Llāh they won’t be affected. And we ask that it doesn’t affect us. This is the news of today…
It is 1432 on the Hijrī calendar, the beginning of year 2011 on the Gregorian calendar. May Allāh ﷻ make our ending good. May our days be good. We should start with sajdah, end it with ṣadaqah. We shouldn’t leave istighfār, 300 astaghfiru Llāh. Every day one ṣadaqah, little or big, in ṣadaqah there is no harm. They should do some charity. Because the world is going towards Qiyāmah. The coming era is the last era of the world. May Allāh ﷻ forgive us. Various signs are appearing, small signs. In order to bring humanity back to the people who are far from it, to bring back those who are running away from servanthood, to show Allāh ﷻ to those who don’t know Him ﷻ – these are the signs. May Allāh ﷻ make our end good. Fātiḥah.
This is today’s instruction. Yes. Ṣadaqah turns disasters away. It prevents trouble, repels a bad ending. Don’t avoid ṣadaqah and don’t waste your days. At least, O people, pray two raka‘āt and recite 70 astaghfiru Llāh. At least. They will guard you. There are Archangels for this. There are angels to protect those who make sajdah. And neither men, nor women should walk bareheaded. If their heads are uncovered and something happens, we are not responsible. We just warn. Women should cover their heads and men shouldn’t walk around bareheaded. They should put something on, they’ll be protected. Keep your head open only at ‘Arafāt. In other places they should cover their heads in respect for Allāh ﷻ. It is from respect for Allāh ﷻ to cover your head. Not only for praying, but always. Women should always be covered. They should be careful. We are sending this warning. We do as we are ordered. Who wants, can listen. Who doesn’t want, suffers from what comes.
May Allāh ﷻ bring goodness. Fātiḥah. Floods can take over countries. They can be shaken by earthquakes. Countries can be blown away by hurricanes. People and countries can be scattered by tsunamis. Fear Allāh ﷻ O people. We should fear. We should repent and stay away from bad ways. We should return to the way of worship. Then you’ll be relaxed here and hereafter. Otherwise you’ll suffer from what comes.
May Allāh ﷻ bring goodness. May we not obey our egos. Don’t do forbidden things. Don’t do ḥarām. Don’t pass a day without sajdah. This is our advice. As-Salāmu ‘alaykum. Peace is upon those who keep on the way of Allāh ﷻ. If not, they can’t be in peace.
