Salam/peace. Salam to all of us. Salam comes from heaven. It takes away worries and sorrow. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Your words are a cure for all troubles! May we be revived and joyful. Welcome, Ay Yaran, Shah Mardan’s beloved friends. As-salamu alaikum. Peace be upon you. May the salam come down from heaven. Ay Yaran/lovers of Shah Mardan, marhaba/greeting of welcome. Marhaba Ay Shah Mardan. Marhaba. Everything coming down from heaven is blessed. It takes away the worries, sorrow, and distress of people.
Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Your words are a cure. May our heaviness leave us. Let’s set out on our Lord’s way. On which way will you set out? Who will you ask for? Who will you ask for other than our Lord? We want our Creator Mawla to be pleased with us. Let’s be peaceful and joyful and revived. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Your words are a remedy for your Yaran. Don’t you people dare say you want dunya/this world! If you want the world, here are the mountains. Here are the oceans. Take them and put them in your pocket.
“Salamun Qawlan Min Rabbir Rahim” (36:58)
As-salamu alaikum Ay Yaran Shah Mardan; his beloved friends, salam to you. “Salamun Qawlan Min Rabbir Rahim” (36:58) Allah “Salamun Qawlan Min Rabbir Rahim” (36:58) How nice. Salam to us from our Lord. Let’s be revived There is nothing in this world worth making you greedy. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. What a nice saying. There is nothing on earth worth making you greedy, my son. What are you being greedy for? For your youth? Your youth will finish. Strength? Your strength will finish. If you are greedy for houses, lands, and palaces, they will all pass and finish. Here are the mountains, rocks, oceans. Take them and go.
Dastur (asking permission) O Shah Mardan. Your Yaran admire you. How nice you are speaking O Shah Mardan. MashaAllahu kan. O our Lord, we are weak servants, helpless servants. We want You O our Lord. We want You O our Lord. May joy come to our hearts. May strength come to our bodies. May power come to our fist/grip. Don’t ask for dunya. Ask for the Mawla (the Lord). 124,000 Prophets came. The first is Prophet Adam. Prophet Adam was sent down from paradise to earth. He said “Woe”. He said – “Woe, I was sent down to this carcass world. Woe to me and to my children! I made a mistake. I had greed for something else.” What was he greedy for? “I was greedy for the tricks of dunya. And it finished me. I was deprived. I was in paradise, then I fell into this terrible dunya. O my child!”
O our father Adam continue. “I made a mistake. I made a mistake and fell into dunya. Don’t make the same mistake I made! Say – ilahi anta maqsudi (My Lord You are my goal) wa ridaka matlubi (and Your Pleasure is my desire) Say – O my Lord, ridaka matlubi. Ya Rabb I don’t want anything else. I only want Your satisfaction. What a shame that I made a mistake and was thrown to dunya. Ad dinu nasiha. Religion is advice. I made a mistake and fell to dunya. O my children, don’t make the same mistake I made. Say – ilahi anta maqsudi wa ridaka matlubi. Say that, O my children,” Prophet Adam is saying. “Say – ilahi anta maqsudi. O my Lord who created me what I want is You. ilahi ridaka matlubi wa anta maqsudi. You are my purpose.” Say O Adam. Say O children of Adam. Keep your honor.
Go ahead O Shah Mardan your Yaran admire you. Say – Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. O our Lord, don’t send us away from Your door. O our Lord, don’t make us servants of this bad dunya. All people are now servants of this terrible world. And this is the punishment: They became slaves of this terrible dunya. Their comfort and peace are gone and their honor is gone. Allah Allah. Satan has made mankind slaves of this terrible dunya. Mankind has no peace. He has no comfort. He became a slave to dunya. Terrible satan taught mankind this. Satan said – “I will appoint you to dunya. That means, I will make you slaves of dunya. I will make you forget your servanthood to your Lord.”
Tawba ya Rabbi, Tawba ya Rabbi. Satan made us slaves of dunya. Instead of servanthood for our Lord, satan made us slaves to dunya. Ay Yaran Shah Mardan. Let’s listen from the holy one, from Shah Mardan. Instead of servanthood for our Lord, satan changed the situation and made us servants of dunya. Astaghfirullah, Astaghfirullah. O men, you were not created to be slaves of dunya. You were created for servanthood to your Creator. O men, the highest honor was given to you, but you left that honor and became slaves of dunya. Whoever became a servant of dunya, also became a servant of satan. All Prophets ‘alayhim as-salam, came to teach this. They taught people this. They said – “You must be servants to your Lord.” Satan tricked mankind and made them slaves for himself. Today, all the people in this world are slaves of satan. No one is performing servanthood for their Lord. Allah Allah.
“Wa Dhakkir Fa’inna dh-Dhikra Tanfa’u l-Mu’minin”(51:55)
Explain O scholars. Teach – “You, O mankind, were not created to be satan’s slaves. You were created for the servanthood of your Lord.” “Wa Dhakkir Fa’inna dh-Dhikra Tanfa’u l-Mu’minin”(51:55) It says to remind. Remind people – Wa dhakkir. Remind them that they have been honored with the honor of serving the Lord. Satan turned you away from that path and made you its slaves. Today, the whole world is satan’s slaves. Shame. Open your ears, listen. Open your eyes, see. Make your tongue speak truth. What have all people today become? They became satan’s slaves.
Go ahead O Shah Mardan, your words are an perfect cure. Know and save yourselves from the accusation of slavery, from the unworthy level of slavery. Be honored with the honor of your Lord’s servanthood. O our Lord, You are Subhan. Satan made mankind leave paradise, then satan made them slaves of dunya. To be slaves of dunya means to accept the sultanate of satan – the followers of satan. What is your identity? Ask people. “Our identity is that which is on the identity cards that all people have; it is – “slaves of satan.” There are very few identity cards that write – “servant of My Lord”. The majority are carrying satan’s identity. Shame! Satan is who made mankind to be thrown out of paradise. And the people of today are carrying satan’s identity card. Shame. There is no one left who carries the honorable identity that Allah gave them. They are killing each other now. Shame.
Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Go ahead O Shah Mardan, your Yaran admire you. What nice sayings you said. Shame on people! They forgot their real identity and they’re carrying satan’s bad identity. Think. Wa dhakkir. Think. “Fa’inna dh-Dhikra Tanfa’u l-Mu’minin”(51:55) To think gives benefit to believers. Think. And Shah Mardan is calling us every day to think. He is inviting us to think every day. “No one is thinking” – “Fahal min muddakir” (54:15) Did you understand? What is Muddakir? It says – is there anyone who thinks, who thinks about his honor? There are none left. Very well. Al jaza’u min jinsil ‘amal – You will be punished according to your actions. If you do servanthood for Allah, what will you get? Paradises. If you do servanthood, slavery for satan, you will get hellfire in dunya and akhira/hereafter. Allahu Allah Allahu Rabbi Allahu Allah ma li siwahu.
Satan ruined the honor of humanity. Satan didn’t leave any honor with mankind and mankind is now suffering. Leave it. Leave the slavery of satan. Return to your Lord’s servanthood. Your life in dunya and in akhira will be paradise. Fatiha.
We will try, we will try to save ourselves from satan’s slavery. Try, so your honor might increase, so you might be honored. If not, you won’t have any honor left. Satan took people’s honor. There are dishonorable people in dunya now. The world is full of people shouting, yelling, fighting, and making wars. Satan took away their human characteristics and dressed them with its own characteristics, and made them satans. Instead of servanthood for Allah, they became servants of satan. There is no humanity left today. O our Lord, send us a master. Go ahead O Shah Mardan, your words are a solution for our troubles. O Shah Mardan, your Yaran admire you. Fatiha.
The Divine Sultanate will come out in the open and be seen. Just a little while longer.
This was very nice, this sohbah/talk was very nice. But our capacity is this much. It is a nice talk, it is concise. It is the essence of advice. Allahu Allah Allahu Rabbi ma li siwahu illa Hu. O our Lord, You made our faces beautiful. You made us honorable. You instructed us to give Shukr/thanks to You. Accept us to be from those who give thanks. Don’t make us from those who do ugly actions. Don’t make us from those who become ugly from dunya. Dunya is under the rule of satan. Satan has made mankind satans. It is making man to fall into the same punishment satan fell into. O clergy! O scholars, say, speak about realities. People of today have lost their humanity. What is the reason? Because they listened to satan. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Hit satan’s head with an iron club, and we will too. Let’s destroy satan’s sultanate! Go ahead O Shah Mardan. This is a nice talk. Shah Mardan is hitting satan’s head with an iron club. We will destroy satan’s sultanate, we will bring it down. The banners of Islam will rise. It is certain.
Come close. Ay Yaran Shah Mardan, let’s listen. Let’s be revived and dressed with mightiness by Allah Almighty. Allahu Allah Allahu Rabbi ma li siwa Hu illa Allahu Allah. Allah. Fatiha.
Recite Fatiha one more time. We will destroy satan’s sultanate. The Divine Sultanate will come out in the open and be seen. Just a little while longer. May the sultanate of satan be under our feet. Amin.
