As-salamu ‘Alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh. Audhu Billahi Minashaytanir Rajeem, Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, Was-salatu Was-salamu ‘ala Rasulina Muhammadin Sayyidul Awwalin wal Akhirin, Madad Ya Rasulallah, Madad Ya Sadati Ashabi Rasulillah, Madad Ya Mashayikhina, Shaykh Abdullah Daghestani, Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani. Dastur. Tariqatunas sohba, wal khayru fil jam’iyya.
May Allah ﷻ provide good associations. Our tariqa stands with discourse and with good associations. If Allah ﷻ has meant good for a person, they gather with good people. Allah ﷻ Himself knows the good person. People who come respecting Allah ﷻ, Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, and the shaykhs insha-Allah (God-willing) are good and their end will be good.
That is why Allah ﷻ knows whom the good is with. It says in the noble hadith, “Allah ﷻ turns hearts as He wishes.” Therefore, do not look at anyone as bad. When Allah ﷻ wants He makes the bad good and the good bad. Everything is in the hands of Allah ﷻ. This is a virtue and favour of Allah ﷻ and a blessing of Allah ﷻ.
May Allah ﷻ make it easy for good people to serve Islam, because these are the End Times. People think of some things as correct and in the end, these turn out not to be good. They interpret Islam according to their own heads and they misguide many people from the right path. The path of the Holy Prophet ﷺ is clear. The true way is one. In fact, learned people who say they know the Quran and Hadith misguide people from the path. May Allah ﷻ not misguide from the right path. May Allah ﷻ, if He wills, not misguide this nation of ours from the right path.
Our nation is the imam of Islam and the guiding light of Islam. Our Holy Prophet ﷺ said after him, “If you become corrupt, Allah ﷻ will send a good people”, and they gave their heads, lives, and blood in this way. They became a hami, meaning a protector, for Islam. Now, the whole Islamic world is watching them. Everybody has hope.
We are with Allah ﷻ and Allah ﷻ does not leave alone. May Allah ﷻ protect good people insha-Allah. May He give them support (madad), may His help reach from His sight, and may they be continuously serving insha-Allah.
Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq.
