Maulana Sheikh NazimComing from Allah and going to Allah...
“Shukr, ya Rabbi, Shukr, ya Rabbi, Shukr, Alhamdulillah, Tauba, ya Rabbi, Tauba, ya Rabbi, Tauba, Astaghfirullah...”
(Shukr and Alhamdulillah open the gates of Paradise,
Tauba and Astaghfirullah close the gates of Hell.)

Tariqatuna as-sohbet wa khairu fi jamiat... These are the words of Shah-u-Naqshiband, may Allah give him much more honour. He was, and still is, guiding the Ummat-i-Muhammadi sws to Allah Almighty. We are coming from the Heavens, from Allah, we are touching this planet, and then we are returning to Him. Nothing else...

When we touch this planet on our way, it is going to be perhaps for one hundred years, or eighty, forty, or maybe just eight years. The period of our lives is going to be different. Countless events are happening in Dunya, and so many things we are interested in which we give all our power to- and they are all Batil... Allah Almighty is saying in His Holy Quran: “Inna li’llahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un...We are coming from Allah and we are going to Allah...” And that is Haqq, the real truth.

The people of this century never take any interest to find out from where they are coming, and to where they are going. Their only interest is Dunya, what they are touching in this life up to until they leave. They think that sixty or seventy years is a lot. And they think that they may enjoy themselves throughout this short life-time... sixty, seventy years, or more or less... ninty and one hundred year old people are so difficult to find...

Where were you before you came to this life? You were in Allah Almighty’s Divine Presence. You are coming from Him- coming a long way.... You have forgotten it. What makes you to forget? It is that you are not believing. If you were believing, you would have to take an interest in yourself and ask: “What happened, and what is going to happen?“ But people never use their mind... Their interest is only in that short time that they are living in.

And everything in this life is directed in such a way that man is never going to take an interest in his spiritual being and his spiritual life. Everything that has happened, or is happening now and is going to happen is only making you not take any interest in your original source, not to ask from where you are coming. And this is big trouble for mankind...
You see running water, and you are asking: ”From where is this river coming? Is it pure or not?” For water you ask. But for yourself, although you are running day after day like rivers, you are not interested to ask: “Where I am coming from? Where am I going to?” The answer is just as we said: ‘Coming from Allah, and going to Allah’...

Our time is very short and full of interests which never leave you to look after anything from your eternal life- and eternal life is to be with Allah Almighty. He is the Eternal One, and if His servant is asking for eternity, then He dresses him with such lights, with such powers, that his interests are going to change step by step. Then you finally reach a point that you understand where you are coming from and where you are going to. There is a plan. On it is written: ‘From Allah Almighty’. And on another plan is written: ‘To Allah Almighty’...

You must try to be for Allah. You must try to force your ego to live for Allah and to learn that you are coming from Allah and going to Him: “My interest is never in you for this life. My interest is only in my Lord. I came and stepped on this planet, and after a while my feet are taken from this earth and directed towards some directions... perhaps unknown directions... perhaps somewhere where there is no more directions...”

Oh people, he who is going opposite to Allah’s calling is going in the wrong direction. That is why a punishment comes on a person, who understands this, but doesn’t keep it. You must understand, in this short life, everything that has happened, what is happening and what will happen forever. Be careful what you do here, what you plant here, so that you should be powerful, and full of enjoyment and satisfaction.

Oh people, try to make your ego say that we are coming from Allah Almighty, and we are changing crew, taking new fuel, and then leaving towards the Heavens in our space ships. Everyone has a vessel, like the Ark which was granted to Sayidina Nuh a.s.... You may enter it and go freely to your Lord’s Divine Presence...

May Allah forgive us and make us understand. It is so clear- to come from Allah and to go to Allah. Oh people, live for Allah, do for Allah, go to Allah, be for Allah... Fatiha.
