In the last days the Prophet ﷺ said people will leave Islam in great numbers. We can only pray to Allāh ﷻ, the Changer of Hearts, to keep our hearts with Him ﷻ, the One Who never changes. The Prophet ﷺ showed us the way. This is the way to happiness and peace.
Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim
Mawlana Shaykh Mehmet Adil Al-Haqqani ق , Sohbet of the 19th of July, 2020.
As-Salāmu ‘alaykum wa-raḥmatu Llāhi wa-barakātuh.
A‘ūdhu bi-Llāhi mina sh-shayṭāni r-rajīm. Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm. Aṣ-ṣalātu wa-s-Salāmu ‘alá Rasūlinā Muḥammadin Sayyidi l-awwalīna wa-l-ākhirīn. Madad yā Rasūla Llāh, madad yā Sādātī Aṣḥābi Rasūli Llāh, madad yā Mashāyikhanā, dastūr Mawlānā Shaykh ‘Abdu Llāh al-Fā’iz ad-Dāghistānī, Shaykh Muḥammad Nāẓim al-Ḥaqqānī. Madad. Ṭarīqatuna ṣ-ṣuḥbah, wa-l-khayru fi l-jam’iyyah.
When our Prophet ﷺ recited Sūratu n-Naṣr, he ﷺ cried. He ﷺ said, “How is it? There will be the victory of Allāh ﷻ and people will come to Islām in crowds.” The Ṣaḥābah asked, “Why are you crying? Isn’t it good tidings?” “I ﷺ am crying because they will leave this religion at the end of times.” Leaving religion means leaving the right way. There are many Muslims who at the end of times – our Prophet ﷺ says – “they will be many but just like the sea foam, they will have no value.”
They have no value because they leave our Prophet’s ﷺ way. Those who choose other ways and show people as if these ways are Islām, and those who believe them leave the religion or are far away from it. There are more than a billion Muslims in number. Muslims are nearly two billion but they have no value because whenever they come together, fitnah appears. They make that community worthless. What makes people worthy is to follow our Prophet’s ﷺ way. If you leave it, you become a toy in the hands of others. Even worse than a toy, you fall into the hands of cruel people in a cruel world. That is what Muslims are for the Islamic world. Thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions of people are dying or fleeing from their countries. And that’s not enough. If there is more oppression, they are ready to do it. Therefore, we are living at the end of times. We should walk firmly on the way of our Prophet ﷺ. Other ways have no benefit.
They say this world is a wolves’ table. Some unbeliever won’t feel mercy for you. He doesn’t feel pity, no love, no mercy. Mercy comes only from Islām and from those who are on the way of our Prophet ﷺ. There is no mercy anywhere else. And they are soldiers of shayṭān. Shayṭān doesn’t have mercy. Therefore we should be careful. You shouldn’t be happy for everything you hear because there are too many liars now. Many liars are around who claim they do this and that. By the wisdom of Allāh ﷻ when you think a man can’t be cheated, he still is. Whereas they say history consists of repetition. Same things happen over and over. People are always cheated. “Fa-‘tabirū yāūli l-abṣār” (59:2), says Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla. Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla says – learn from it.
O mindful people, learn from other’s mistakes. Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla says, “I ﷻ created you the same way. All of you have mind.” Who uses it will continue like that until Qiyāmah. Be careful. But what can you do? It’s the will of Allāh ﷻ. If Allāh ﷻ guided you, you should be thankful. You should ask forgiveness and seek refuge in Allāh ﷻ. “Yā Muqalliba l-Qulūb, thabbit qalbanā ‘alá ṭā‘atik,” says the ḥadīth of our Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. “O Changer of Hearts, make my heart firm with You ﷻ.” The Ṣaḥābah told our Prophet ﷺ, “Yā Rasūlu Llāh, you ﷺ are a Prophet.” Certainly nothing can happen to our Prophet ﷺ near Allāh ﷻ. But it is a message for people until Qiyāmah.
Hearts are between the two fingers of Allāh’s ﷻ powerful Hand. They can be changed instantly. But if we recite this beautiful prayer of our Prophet ﷺ, our hearts will be firm with Ḥaqq for the honour of our Prophet ﷺ, in shā’a Llāh.
When Sūrah of, Sūratu n-Naṣr. Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm: “Idhā jā’a naṣru Llāhi wa-l-fatḥ, wa-ra’ayta n-nāsa yadkhulūna fī dīni Llāhi afwāja, fa-sabbiḥ bi-ḥamdi rabbika wa-staghfirhu, innahu kāna tawwāba” (110:1-3). This, this is a Sūrah, good tiding for Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam, for opening door of Islām for whole people – “and you will see people coming to Islām, gathering many people from everywhere it will be come to Islām.” Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam was sad and he was little crying. Ṣaḥābah, companions, asking, “Why you are sad, this is good tiding Allāh ﷻ saying?” Because Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam when he ﷺ ten years, only forty people was around him ﷺ. And when go in Madīnah and thousand of people coming to Islām, hundred people coming, two hundred, five hundred coming, taking bay‘ah and asking from Prophet ﷺ.
This Sūrah was asking and he ﷺ said because “in the end of time it will be time people going out from Islām like this, thousands people, millions people, going out from Islām. For this I am crying.” And Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam saying. It is our days – we are nearly more, nearly two billion Muslims in the world but they are no any value for them. And Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam saying, “You will be like a wave, type of wave of sea when going like this big, after finish – nothing [foam].” It will be like this – you are many people, but you don’t have any value. Value with, to be with Allāh ﷻ, with Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam.
And these days we are having nearly two billions and in whole this world there very less than Muslim there is people they have respected [respect]. But for Islām, they are like toy. They are doing everything for [to] them, nothing happen. Why? Because, as Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam saying, we don’t have real Islām, real belief. But it must be like this, end of time, for Mahdī ‘alayhi s-salām to come. But what we… who is… Very few people they are following Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. These people they have value and they have respected [respect], in shā’a Llāh. From time of Prophet ﷺ coming less and less and fitnah growing everywhere, but nothing comparing to this time, our time what happened. But it is every after, every difficult, it will be opening. Allāh ﷻ, “Fa-inna ma‘a l-‘usri yusra, inna ma‘a l-‘usri yusra” (94:5-6). We are living difficult time, our time difficult. But we don’t… we are not hopeless. We are believer and we are believe after this it will be happiness and it will be, in shā’a Llāh, whole world it will be finish all this fitnah. Coming peace with Sayyidunā Mahdī ‘alayhi s-salām.
Allāh ﷻ make it easy for people. We are passing period, difficult period, but who is with Allāh ﷻ, Allāh ﷻ He ﷻ is with him. The worst thing, hopeless. For this Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla saying, “Lā taqnaṭū” (39:53) – “Don’t be hopeless.” You are with One ﷻ who is, everything He ﷻ in His ﷻ Hand. Everything in His ﷻ Hand, and no nothing affect Him ﷻ, nothing changing Him ﷻ. Our heart it must be with Him ﷻ, as Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam saying, “Yā Muqalliba l-Qulūb, thabbit qalbanā ‘alá ṭā‘atik.” “O Who ﷻ Changing Heart, let our heart to be with You ﷻ. Don’t change my heart,” Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam saying. And Ṣahābah, companion, asking, “Why O Prophet ﷺ, you ﷺ are the one, the Beloved one, of course Allāh ﷻ He ﷻ has promised for Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam nothing will be, but Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam mercy for us, he ﷺ teach us what he, to be survive, to be safe. He ﷺ said this is heart in two finger of Allāh ﷻ can changing any time. So we are doing this du‘ā’ imitating Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam.
So, in shā’a Llāh, our heart it will be with truth, with Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla, not changing to anywhere. If it’s like this nothing affect you, not make you hopeless. Allāh ﷻ keep our heart with Him ﷻ, in shā’a Llāh.
Wa-min Allāhi t-tawfīq, al-Fātiḥah.
