Allāh ﷻ oppresses no one. To accept what He ﷻ does is real belief. Who accepts is at rest, never sad or stressed or fearful. They know the difficulties of this world will pass.

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.

“Wa-lā yaẓlimu rabbuka aḥada” (18:49). Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla, ṣadaqa Llāhu l-’aẓīm, is saying. Allāh ﷻ does not oppress anyone. Whatever we deserve, Allāh ﷻ gives that to us. Whatever is meant for us, Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla is giving us that. Therefore, Muslims, believing people, should always be on the level of contentment. They should accept everything that comes since it comes from Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla. For people who are mu’min that is adab (good manners). It is a good characteristic that Allāh ﷻ likes in people. Some people live in suffering throughout their lives. In spite of that suffering, they are content. They don’t complain about anything, because their īmān is strong. What are you going to complain about? You cannot complain about Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla. Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla is the one who gave you this. Whatever He ﷻ gives…
“Whatever Mawlá ﷻ gives is beautiful,” say Awliyā’ with love. “Whatever He ﷻ does, He ﷻ does it nicely. Let’s see what Mawlá ﷻ does. Whatever He ﷻ does, it is beautiful.” Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla created everything, prepared everything. The only duty left to us, is to watch it unfold. We have been living and watching for years. Let’s see what we will see from now on.
We make du’ā’ that Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla shows us good and beautiful things, because we cannot do anything. We are not capable of doing anything. You’re an observer here. You are an observer and you are in this life. Until you pass on to ākhirah, things will go on like this. You should be on the level of contentment. If you don’t accept that, then up to you. You will make yourself miserable and get yourself into trouble, because your situation is given by Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla. No one can change it. Whoever is happy with it, and manages to get along in this life, the next life will be good for him.
In dunyā, as we said, the will of Allāh ﷻ is everywhere. As for our life here, to be with īmān, to be in peace and comfort, to be at the level of contentment is the most important; to be pleased with what Allāh ﷻ gives. If you are not pleased, you will still get rewards. But you won’t have peace. To be without peace is not good for people. If you object, that is counted as disobedience to Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla. May Allāh ﷻ protect us. Therefore, everything that comes is from Allāh ﷻ. We should know this. We should believe in this. We should put our trust in Him ﷻ. We should put our trust in Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla and spend this life in peace and faith, in shā’a Llāh.
Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla saying in holy Qur’ān, Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm. “Wa-lā yaẓlimu rabbuka aḥada” (18:49). Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla, He ﷻ not oppress anyone, in this world and other world, or whole universe. Allāh ﷻ, He ﷻ has, ‘Azza wa-Jalla, countless creature, countless – which we don’t know about them. Now, crazy people they saying there is life in another planet, there is UFO coming, going – maybe they will come for us. Of course, but not what they think. Allāh ﷻ, He ﷻ Creator ﷻ – endless Creator ﷻ. But what He ﷻ want, it will be not for your opinion, your imagination. No, He ﷻ has countless creature and He ﷻ not oppress anyone.
So, we are living and we are – our life, who has belief, he must believe this is what Allāh ﷻ, He ﷻ want for us, He ﷻ create us from child or from baby or from before, also. He ﷻ is make us to do everything with His ﷻ will. Without His ﷻ will, we cannot do anything. We are in this planet just with His ﷻ will and we must believe and accept this. When you accept this, everything you done you will be – no anxious, no sadness, nothing. Real belief like this. Believer like this. But who not believe, he try, he struggle, he is angry, he is unhappy, he is sad, he is oppressed, depressed. Everything we find now in this. Why this? Because no belief, no īmān for them. They thought they can doing this with their will and their power and their cleverness. No, this… when Allāh ﷻ want, something, to do, He ﷻ give you everything what you think. Even there is many people without anything, they are happy. Poor people, they are happy.
And there is some kind of people, whole life in misery, in difficulty and illness and everything, but they are not care about this. It is very rare people like this. Because they are knowing this from Allāh ﷻ, until whole life, they… Like this they living, but in when they pass away, they finish this. It is not forever, only for this dunyā. And in this world, it is many awliyā’ or many poem people – they awliyā’, they make qaṣīdah. They said, “We, let us to see what God ﷻ will do, what He ﷻ done. What He ﷻ do, it is nice. Everything He ﷻ do, it is nice,” they said. For this they accept everything coming from Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla: illness, everything, every difficult. They are happy with this, not objecting or not accept this. “Everything coming from Allāh ﷻ. We are happy with this,” they said.
And this is like our life also, you must be like: what happen, Allāh ﷻ done, and we are like who seeing, like in theater. We are watching what will happen what happen – we watch. What will happen, also we must watch, not object it. And you watch and you are also inside this play. So, we are, we don’t know what will happen, just we are looking and watching what will happen. This is for believer people. They must be like this, don’t object. And what happen, everything Allāh ﷻ give us with His ﷻ mercy. We are only His ﷻ… His ﷻ creature, we cannot do anything. Only we must accept and who accept, he will be rest in this life. No stress, no sadness, no fear – nothing. And next life it will be for him best, better.
But this life also for people, they, must also, Allāh ﷻ like them to be rest. How can be this? To accept from Allāh ﷻ, to be happy, pleased with Allāh ﷻ, He ﷻ gave us this. It is coming from Him ﷻ and we are accept this and Allāh ﷻ make us to be good people, to make Allāh ﷻ pleased with us. This is our aim. The best thing for human being to, can practice this and accept and not complain. Any very small complaint even, believer cannot be done this. Because this, they must know everything coming from Allāh ﷻ. So, who know this, everything come from Allāh ﷻ, for whom he can complain [about], Allāh ‘Azza wa-Jalla? Astaghfiru Llāh.
Wa-min Allāhi t-tawfīq, al-Fātiḥah.
