Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim
It is the last day of Ramaḍān and everyone will leave their fasting and praying to run after dunyā. “Keep to the clean path,” says Mawlānā, “Dont run with the sewer rats.” If you invite the Sulṭān ﷻ then you will eat from His ﷻ heavenly table.
Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi ق , Sohbat of the 7th of August, 2013
Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Let us magnify- let us magnify (takbir) Allah Almighty. What is our job? To talk and brag in vain? It is not that. Our job is to magnify Allah Almighty- to glorify Him, to sanctify Him, to praise Him (tazim, tasbih, tamjid, taqdis). Allah! May Allah not deprive us of the love and longing of this holy day. Our holy Ramadan came to its end on this holy day of today. May Allah not deprive us of its faydh/rewards. May we walk to the pure servanthood, not to dunya and may the table from Heavens come down for us also.
It is called Surat Al-Ma’idah. “Can a table from Heavens come down?” Yes, it can! If you serve a Sultan, then the Sultan has a table and he makes you eat from that table. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar wa Ajal Azam. You are Subhan Ya Rabbi.
May Allah Almighty send us a Master who will pull us together. How beautiful. You worked as much as you could in this holy month- you fasted, you prayed and then you leave all of it on the 4th day! No. Keep to the clean path & you will be gathered with the clean ones. Who chooses the dirty path enters the category of those big rats that run in the sewers, what do they call it? Sewer rat. They fall into their category. Seek what you are seeking in Heavens. But they don’t seek in Heavens. Where do they seek? In the sewage. They play in there splashing in the water. They are also very fat, well-fed. Who fall into the dirt of dunya, fall into the situation of sewage rats- they are worthless.
O our Lord, may You accept our servanthood according to our capabilities. Grant us power and a service in Your Sultanate. O our Lord, make those who make us miserable, miserable ones. Go ahead O Shah Mardan, how beautifully you expressed this diwan (poem).
