From the time Qābīl killed his brother Hābīl (as) people have been fighting each other. Why? Some fear Allāh ﷻ and some follow shayṭān who convinces them they are the best and doing good. But those who say they are peaceful are actually doing violence.
Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

As-Salāmu ‘alaykum wa-raḥmatu Llāhi wa-barakātuh.

Ever since the world was created people have been oppressing each other and wanting to destroy the opposing side. What we mean by opposing side is that there are two types. One side is with shayṭān and the other is with Allāh ﷻ. The side with shayṭān wants to destroy the other. They don’t want anyone of them to be left. Those who are with Allāh ﷻ want goodness for all of them. They try to find the way of truth.
Therefore, this matter started when Qābīl killed Hābīl. Out of his envy and the desire of his ego, Qābīl killed his brother. He said, “I will kill you.” And Hābīl (as) said, “Even if you want to kill me, I do not want to harm you.” He said, “Allāh ﷻ does not like such things. Even if you attack me, I will not do the same to you.” And then Qābīl killed Hābīl (as). Since then, this matter is between right and wrong. It will last until Qiyāmah. Muslims, or who are with Allāh ﷻ, become the means for others to come to Allāh ﷻ or at least they walk on their way with the agreement not to oppress or attack the opposing side. And if they breach the agreement, they get what they deserve. Because good people understand with goodness. Who are not good understand by being harmed and you must respond to them. Everything has its adab.
The way shown by Allāh ﷻ is the good way. You can use force out of necessity or against oppressors. People under this command are under protection. Allāh ﷻ ordered them not to oppress. We are talking about that now. Almost since the time of our Prophet ﷺ, they have been trying to destroy Islām. They removed the caliphate a hundred years ago. There is no longer a khalīfah of our Prophet ﷺ. The Ummah should have a khalīfah, and we should follow his orders. There should be a physical khalīfah of our Prophet ﷺ to represent him ﷺ and to protect Islām and the Ummah. We have not had one for a hundred years.
Shayṭān and his soldiers thought they destroyed it and now they see that it is not as they thought. They are still oppressing in all ways, and they are not getting any wiser. He will not get wiser because he is shayṭān. Shayṭān is making it look like his actions are good and nice, whereas everything he does is only harmful and oppressive for people. Not only mankind, they are also oppressing animals, rocks, and seas, water, and air – everything in this world. They interfere in everything, and also in the balance Allāh ﷻ has made. They are spoiling everything. And they say they are the best and want to do away with everyone else. But a man who is truly with Allāh ﷻ would not do that.
And Allāh ﷻ is not with them, they are with shayṭān. They do all kinds of wrong, avoiding what is the right. Lying, hypocrisy, and all bad manners are with them. Why? Because they are with shayṭān. They should leave shayṭān. Then this thing will be lifted from them. Don’t expect goodness from shayṭān. He will never order goodness. Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla made it clear. “I will make all of them like me. I want to take them all to hell,” said shayṭān when Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla sent him away from Paradise. Therefore, Mawlānā Shaykh Nāẓim was once asked by the head of some Christian community, “When will this world become better?” They were together by chance. Mawlānā gave a nice answer, “When will the situation improve? When shayṭān retires.” The man started laughing, saying, “You are right.” As long as shayṭān is around, it will go on like this.
Try to not be with shayṭān. Who is with shayṭān? The one who is against Allāh’s ﷻ laws, who is against human nature, as human nature is in accordance with the laws of Allāh ﷻ. Who comes against them [His ﷻ laws], comes against nature. Don’t be with them. Be with Allāh ﷻ to be safe, in shā’a Llāh.
Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla from beginning of creation, from Ādam ‘alayhi s-salām, there was fighting between good, between people. But what happened actually it is fighting between good and bad. It’s beginning from son of Ādam ‘alayhi s-salām, two sons: one named Qābīl, one named Hābīl (as). There was – Qābīl jealous from Hābīl (as), and they said to him, “I want to kill you.” Hābīl (as), said, “I don’t want to kill you because I am afraid from Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla, and if you attack me to kill me, I will not attack you to kill you.” So after, Qābīl he kill his brother and this beginning from that time fight between good and bad. And there is two kind: one with Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla – he afraid, and second one with shayṭān, evil, who not caring about Allāh ﷻ, only caring about himself and following shayṭān.
Shayṭān he was, when thrown out from Paradise, he said, “I will make this human being to be like me, to put them all in Hell.” And we see this. Through whole history – who following good – people [they are] attacking them. They want them, to finish them. Until Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam and from Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam [until] now, more and more. They want to finish Islām. They want, they don’t want to be any Muslim. “Where we are going we must be no Muslim,” they said. “No anyone obeying Allāh ﷻ, only obeying shayṭān.” Muslim they are obeying Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla and they are want good for human being. They want them to be happiness here and hereafter. This is real Muslim aim. Real prophets, all prophets coming for mercy for whole world, for whole humanity, for jinn, for everything.
But other – shayṭān he is coming to curse people, to make people unhappy. When people unhappy, especially when they be in Hell, he will be very happy. Other he is not happy. For this fighting, going fighting from their country, going to another country fighting and fighting and killing people. Want to finish, they want only land without human being. Only land they want and to… This is what…
But Islām order to ask people for happiness, show them good way. And if they accept, they are happy. [If] not accept they can make agreement and nobody touch them, nobody do anything. They are more protected than Muslim. This what happened through centuries on Muslim. But other they are coming, they are killing everyone. Who are not like them, they are killing them. Even they have another sect, they have another color, they have another language, they want finish them. This is, I was wondering why this? So it is very easy – one with Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla and one with shayṭān. Shayṭān whole time make trick, make bad thing for people, make every bad thing, not respecting people, not respecting the world, not respecting the agreement, not accept anything. Islām, not like this. Even they thought they will be winner, but at the end, because we are with Allāh ﷻ, Allāh ﷻ help us and everything it is better than who with shayṭān.
Shayṭān cheating people, showing people, their follower, his follower as they are the most best people, most happy people. But they are not like that because they are not following rule of Allāh ﷻ. Allāh ﷻ He ﷻ put rule for everything. Even you are not Muslim, also you have this rule for mankind, for animal, for earth, for air. Everything you must keep as rule of Allāh ﷻ. But now, they are not keeping this. Everything, they destroy everything. They destroy human being. They destroy animal. They destroy water. They destroy land. They destroy air. And still they are proud. They said, “We are doing good.” No. They are not doing good. They are doing worse. They saying, “We are doing peace,” but actually they are doing violence, doing war, doing killing people. This is what they are doing, thinking. Not thinking anything else. Not thinking to make peace with human being. No. To make people to fight each other, to kill each other.
Allāh ﷻ save us from them. Allāh ﷻ help mu’min believer and to be safe until, in shā’a Llāh, Mahdī ‘alayhi s-salām come and clean this world, in shā’a Llāh.
Wa-min Allāhi t-tawfīq, al-Fātiḥah.
