Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Adil ق
“When some things happen, people want to make decisions right away. They keep asking what is right, and if it’s right or wrong. You shouldn’t hurry with it. How do we know if it’s right? Things which comply with Ahlu s-Sunnah wa l-Jama’ah, with humanity and Islam are good. But sometimes they look good, and they seem good from the outside but are bad from the inside. We should be careful about it.
Many groups have formed after our Holy Prophet ﷺ. Many people left the way. Our Holy Prophet ﷺ says that there will be 73 groups and only one of them will be saved. Who are they? They are the group that is on the right way, the group which follows the way of our Holy Prophet ﷺ. They are people who are together with Shari’ah and Tariqah. Only Tariqah or only Shari’ah is not enough. When there is only Shari’ah, it is without a soul, without spirituality. It is easy to use it because there is nothing to support it. The support is the love of our Holy Prophet ﷺ, the love of Allah ﷻ. When Shari’ah is superficial, they may accept everything. They accept everything but goodness and spirituality. They don’t accept spirituality, whereas there is nothing without a soul.
There are various people, various groups in this world. Tariqah is the right way. Tariqah is the good way. The rest is for cheating people. They are harming more than bringing benefit to people. Also, they don’t accept Tariqah and speak badly about it. Why? Because the friends of Haqq are the true ones, and the enemies are the wrong ones. Allah ‘Azza wa Jalla created people this way. It is a test. Certainly, good ones will achieve good things, and bad ones will be swept away.
Since the time of our Holy Prophet ﷺ until now, many people have assumed something of themselves and have written books according to their own minds. They are bad scholars. Their Fitnah will last until Mahdi ‘alayhi s-salam. And when Mahdi ‘alayhi s-salam comes, it will be over. May Allah ﷻ protect us.”
