“A’ūdhu bi-Llāhi mina sh-shayṭāni r-rajīm. Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:
إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُدَافِعُ عَنِ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا
(Qur’ān 22:38). Allah ﷻ states in the Holy Quran: ‘Truly, Allah defends those who believe.’ Allah ﷻ defends the believers (mumineen). He protects and preserves them, says Allah ﷻ in the Holy Quran. Because believers don’t think of anything but goodness for others, even though they sometimes make a mistake, Allah ﷻ protects them.
Shaytan and his helpers are continuously attacking believers and want to get rid of their faith and their leader through various types of trickery. Sometimes directly as war and when it’s not war it’s through fitnahs (dissensions/ discords). They’re acting as if they’re doing good to people yet they try to destroy Islam. However, they do not know, shaytan knows, but those who go after him do not know that nobody has any luck in being victorious against Allah ﷻ.
Here is the Head of Muslims, Sheikh Nazim ق used to say. It was the Ottoman Empire; the whole world is looking here. That’s why the enemies of Islam are attacking here. They think: ‘If we finish this place then Islam will be finished.’ They don’t know that no matter what they do, if Allah ﷻ doesn’t will it they cannot [do it].
Allah ﷻ says: ‘وَلَيَنصُرَنَّ اللَّهُ مَن يَنصُرُهُ’, ‘And Allah will surely help those who help Him’, (Qur’ān 22:40). Whoever helps Allah ﷻ, Allah ﷻ will help him. Victory is for Allah ﷻ. In the end, victory is for Islam. All the things that they do will be in vain and of no use. All their trickeries will be going to garbage. Muslims have put their trust in Allah ﷻ. We don’t know how to make agreements, we’re naive. And they mix in trickeries with the intention to harm Islam but insha’Allah it will not happen. They can claim to be as strong and powerful as they want. They can claim that they know all the knowledge and that they’re teaching it to others but essentially it all happens through Allah’s ﷻ permission. That permission is given and that’s how that door opens. As long as Allah ﷻ doesn’t want, nothing can move from its place.
