Don’t Be Heedless

As-Sayyid Sultanul Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad ‘Adil ar-Rabbani Hazretleri ق sohbat, 7 June 2017/12 Ramadān 1438, Lefke Dergah, Cyprus

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa raḥmatullāhi wa barakātuh. A‘ūdhu billāhi minash-shayṭāni r-rajīm. Bismillāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm. Aṣ-ṣalātu wa s-salāmu ‘alá Rasūlinā Muḥammadin Sayyidi l-awwalīna wa l-ākhirīn. Madad yā RasūlAllāh, madad yā Sādāti Aṣḥābi Rasūlillāh, madad yā Mashāyikhinā, dastūr yā Shaykh Abdullāh al-Fā’iz ad-Dāghistāni, Shaykh Muḥammad Nāẓim al-Ḥaqqānī. Madad. Ṭarīqatunā aṣ-ṣuḥbah wa l-khayru fi l-jam‘iyyah.

Our Prophet ﷺ is saying, “Allāhumma a‘inna ‘alá dhikrika wa shukrika wa ḥusna ‘ibādatik. Wa lā tajʿalnā mina l-ghāfilīn.” Our Prophet ﷺ is praying to Allāh ﷻ and we are repeating the same thing. “Help us to be constant in Your ﷻ remembrance. Help us thank You ﷻ, make shukr to You ﷻ. Don’t make us from the heedless ones.” A man can fall into heedlessness at any moment. Therefore, it is a good prayer. And its thawāb (reward) is big. Its virtues are great. It says, “Help us to have good worshipping. Don’t deprive us from Your ﷻ dhikr. Help us make dhikr and worship well.”

People are doing but there is a way to do it better. The most important is heedlessness. All of us are heedless. They forget worship in a moment, forget other things and get involved in dunyā. Whatever there is in dunyā, games for children, cars for young people, they become heedless and follow these. Some people are watching TV, some are worried about earning money. Every moment shayṭān puts us in heedlessness to estrange us from Allāh ﷻ.

There is heedlessness in everyone. In a minute, a man thinks about useless things and he forgets Allāh ﷻ, which is useful. He forgets dhikr of Allāh ﷻ. Whereas you can do what you have to without forgetting Allāh ﷻ and being heedless. Everything would be perfect then. Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla created us. In order to be able to do everything, Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla gave us arms and legs. And He ﷻ is saying – eat, drink, go wherever you want but don’t forget Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla. “Don’t forget Me ﷻ,” says Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla. Don’t fall into heedlessness. Heedlessness, even from the perspective of this world, sometimes a second of heedlessness can put a person into difficulty.

This is materially. And in the presence of Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla every minute, every breath, is a treasure for us. Once it is gone … When money is gone, it may come back but when a breath, a life is gone, it cannot return. Therefore, we have to know its value and not be heedless. May Allāh ﷻ protect everyone from doing useless work, from going to useless places, bad places, inshā’Allāh. When a person is in a good place, he should not forget that he is always under Allāh’s ﷻ gaze and is always with Allāh ﷻ. Who doesn’t forget this is not heedless. He is always winning.

Prophet ﷺ he making this du‘ā, “Allāhumma a‘inna ‘alá dhikrika wa shukrika wa ḥusni ‘ibādatika wa lā taj‘alna mina l-ghāfilīn. Meaning, O our Lord ﷻ, help us to be remember You, to thank You, to be, to make nice beautiful worshipping. These three are very important. And more important than this – don’t let us to be heedless. Don’t let us to be heedless. It is very important because this life we are doing, alḥamduliLlāh, who believer they can make good worshipping, thanking for Allāh ﷻ and mentioning name of Allāh. But many time they are heedless. One second you are with Allāh ﷻ after you going to some, your mind going to other place or you working something. You forget and you be heedless.

Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla He ﷻ create us and He give us everything: hand, foot, you can go here, there, travelling. You eat, drink, enjoy but He ﷻ said, don’t forget, don’t be heedless. Every time must be remember Allāh ﷻ to be knowing He ﷻ is every second with us. Every minute with us, every time He ﷻ is looking for us but cannot go any place without Him ﷻ. This is, if you remember this you will be from good, happy people.

Prophet ﷺ, very important du’ā, very important praying this. Short but it is real. We need very much this because you know our life it is precious. Money, if you lose money maybe you can bring again, maybe you can bring more money. Sometimes people they lose money but they after they become more. But from your life, if you lose one minute, one second, you cannot bring again. This only very limited. So it is more important than money, more important than everything. Your time to not be heedless. If you are every time with remembering you will be the most happy in next life because you are whole time with your Creator. When you remember this so you must, you meaning this, you are loving your Creator. And when somebody with his with loving Him ﷻ, he will be whole time happy. He whole time with bless from Allāh ﷻ. When you happy with Allāh, you love Allāh, He ﷻ will love you also.

This is very short, but MāshāAllāh, Prophet ﷺ He was making ḥadīth short but he ﷺ is oceans of meaning. InshāAllāh for this Ramaḍān day Allāh ﷻ accept this duā’ of Prophet ﷻ for us also. To be from this people, to be remember, to not be heedless, inshāAllāh.
