Patience leads to salvation.
He (Allahﷻ) asks for gratefulness when He gives comfort/ease.
Hajjah Amina ق paints a vivid picture of the Day of Judgment; who will be granted paradise without questioning, who will be questioned and forgiven, and who will not find forgiveness. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim Allahumma Salli ala Muhammadin wa ala ‘aly Muhammadin wa Sallim Sayyidah … Continue reading The Book of Patience
Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim
Sultan Sheikh Mehmet Adil Al-Haqqani (QS), Sohbat of the 22nd of June, Ramadan 2015, Lefke – Cyprus
Audhu billahi min ash-shaytani r-rajim. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. As-salatu wa s- salamu ala Rasulina Muhammadin Sayyidi l-awwalina wa l-akhirin. Madad ya RasulAllah, madad ya Sadati Ashabi Rasulillah, madad ya Mashaykhina, madad ya Shaykh Abdullahi d- Daghistani, Shaykh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani, dastur. Tariqatuna s-sohbah, wa l- khayru fi jam’iyyah.
Why did Allah Azza wa Jalla send people to this world? This world is a testing place. People don’t understand this. They think when they come to this world, all their wishes will be fulfilled, everything will go as they like. With crying, complaining, and by force they want to turn this world into paradise. No, it does not go according to your wishes. What Allah wills, happens. Allah sent human beings into this world, so that they work for their akhirah, make their akhirah prosperous. If heaven was on earth people would not be tested.
Human beings do not want to obey Allah’s orders. In the first place ego, shaitan, desires, shaitans around us hinder us. They don’t let man free. People either complain about their father, their brothers, their husbands, their neighbours, so there is always a reason for complaining. It is the cause of unhappiness. But Allah Azza wa Jalla created this world like this. In this world if you are happy with your husband, you complain about your neighbour. If you are happy with your neighbour you complain about your father or brother. So, do not search for comfort in this world.
How will you be peaceful? You have to accept. There might be small things – don’t complain about them. If they were gone, other things would happen, there would be another kind of unhappiness. Be happy with the small things. Say: “Thanks to Allah I have these problems. If not, there might be other things we cannot carry.” So, these need to be. In this world, Allah gave Adam, alaihi s-salam, 40 years of sadness rain. Adam, alaihi s-salam, cried for 40 years, laughed for just 1 year. So, since this world was created, it is like this. But shukur liLllah if that 1 year is at ease you forget everything. You forget sadness, you forget all. You will not object to them. The more you object, the worse it gets. The more you object, worse things are happening. For this reason, as we said, submit to small tests. Even if you have a complaint you can complain to yourself.
But there are some people, addicted people, may Allah not make us from them, troubles are attracted to them like magnets. There are such people. You see this year he broke his leg, next year he had an accident, the other year his house was burnt, this and that happened. Throughout their lives they are like this. Thank Allah you are not one of them. May Allah protect us. We carry on with small things – enough! So, as we said do not search for heaven on earth. You can change your world into heaven, if you accept the small things. If not these, we will have bigger problems. If you submit, you can find heavenly peace in this world. Otherwise complaining, leave that aside.
Now people they forget these small things. They have left their own issues and they try to rule the world, the country. They want everything according to their ambitions, according to their expectations. They can never find peace in this life. Accept everything, you will find peace.
Allah created human being and put them in earth, and not earth not paradise. It must be something not good with everybody, nobody have perfection, all what he want he got in this life or in earth. Because Allah Azza wa Jalla make this earth life for test. It must be that everybody have something he’s not happy with this and this is, it is a test. But you must be, if you have small problems you must be happy with this. Because, this problem, you can deal with this. But if you don’t have this, Allah give you another kind, a new thing you cannot carry. If you are not happy with that, also, they giving you another thing.
So in this life, you don’t see anybody he get everything what he want. Only, who get paradise in this life, the AwliyaAllah, because also they have, they are carrying very more than other people. But they are happy with this because it is coming from Allah and we are happy with what Allah send us. So they’ll be happy. But other people, even very small thing they’re crying, they are shouting, they are making trouble. You cannot change. If you change, Allah send more different problem. Each time you want to finish from problem, Allah send other, so don’t complain from this small thing. Don’t complain from wife, from husband, from mother, father – it is your very near people, very close, and you cannot change them. Only, you must accept people how they are. Many people, they are complaining: “My father is angry. My mother she is angry. He is doing this, doing that.” You cannot change. You must be patient and you accept him as he is. If one he changing, maybe become worse.
Everything like this. Don’t think in this life you will find somebody he get everything what you want. President, no. Kings, no. Queens, no. Nobody! Everybody, Allah create them in this life, they must be, have something, some problem for them. But, there is one kind of people, Allah not make us like them – we cannot carry. These people they are, “muptela”, we call them – addicted. They are from beginning of their life until their death, this trouble, then that accident. Everything, you can find in these people. Like lightening, thunder, coming on this iron.”Bala” (trouble) coming on them like this. This is also difficult for people. But there is people like this and we can see some of them. They are happy also but many of them of course, they cannot carry. But there is people also like this.
Allah not make us from them, we cannot carry. Only daily, small problems – enough. Without this, not life. You must be angel but when you are human being – everybody from human being have some problem and Mashayikh and tariqa, Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam), teaching us to deal with this problem. Patient and accept this coming from Allah. Allah, we are accept this, don’t make it more than this. We make praying and du’a.
