Maulana Sheikh Nazim The Delusions of Grandiosity (About Gaddafi)


(He will order) the jinn, “Throw away all the concrete buildings.” In one night, they will throw all of them into the sea! The next night he will order, “Construct new buildings according to the old methods, which are suitable for the honor of Islam. A new city appears, that you can't even imagine. The imaam who is coming, is Saahib al-Karamat, the Master of Miracles, can move east to west and west to east. He has such astonishing power!

These dishonorable ones think they can show power by using iron materials or electricity. He will cancel all of these in one night! None of them will operate. The time has come. Now they are on the border. The soldiers are waiting now to enter inside, just like they entered Iraq. They will conquer.

O our Lord, shukr, shukr, shukr! Alhamdulillah, amaan yaa Rabbee, tawbah yaa Rabbee.

May Allah protect us from a bad end! From what happened to that man (Gaddafi), we seek refuge in Allah. We seek refuge in Allah. He ruled for 42 years and did as he wanted, thinking he could do as he wanted forever, but he couldn't and he was stopped. They cut him into pieces and threw him away!

The pride of the tyrants does not let them leave; they are too proud to leave. We seek refuge in Allah from that! May Allah protect us from a bad end. We don't want such an end. We may be an ordinary, simple servant and it is enough. Neither palaces nor treasures help in the end. He had everything. Was it of any use to him? No, it was not and he insisted to stay longer, saying, “Maybe I can make that 250 million into 300, 400, 500 million, maybe it will become billions!”

That wealth has no result. It can't be more than Qaroon's fortune. Compared to the treasures of Qaroon, these are like toys of children. Qaroon is gone (died). We seek refuge in Allah. Allah Almighty says:

فَخَسَفْنَا بِهِ وَبِدَارِهِ الْأَرْضَ
Fakhasafna bihi wa bidarihi al-ard. We caused the Earth to swallow him and his dwelling place. (al-Qasas, 28:81)

And the Earth keeps swallowing him one foot deeper everyday until the Last Day! Amaan yaa Rabbee. Tawbah yaa Rabbee, we are weak servants!

They don't accept their weakness. Shaytan teaches Mankind pride and arrogance, saying, “Claim to be great ones, run after fame.” This is the instruction of evil Shaytan. Amaan yaa Rabbee. Tawbah yaa Rabbee. May He not leave us in the hands of our dirty egos! May He not make us follow Shaytan! What can we do? We seek refuge in Allah. This palace, that palace, who is it's owner? Sabanci? (A rich trader who died.) Orakci? The tinsmith? (joking). Do you carry these huge buildings on your shoulders (to the Hereafter)? Is it Vankulu?

(...) The sickness of claiming greatness is it called “megalomania,” a personality disorder. Everybody claims to be great as they don't want to say, “I am only a servant, a weak servant.” They see their ego so big, as if it fills the whole universe, saying “it is all mine.” It is a lie and a wrong thing.

Amaan yaa Rabbee. May Allah not leave us in the hands of our dirty ego! La budda min murshideen, there must be a guide, who will show you what is ahead. (...) People come to me and say, “Take care of yourself, look after yourself.” Finally, I bought a mirror for myself and am looking at the mirror everyday, to see in what situation I am! laa hawla wa laa quwatta illa billah, tawbah yaa Rabbee. Don't leave us in the hands of our bad ego! Therefore, there must be a guide to teach people. No guide remains now; awliya are hidden, you can't see them.

Amaan yaa Rabbee. They are making us say this. We are not praising ourselves. We also look at ourselves through the mirror; you also look. That mirror shows our outer looking, but the mirror of the saints of Allah shows our reality.

(Should we feel embarrassed now about our unknown side and cover our faces with our hands?)

Yes, it is like this. Now the world has been left empty like this, from the saints, and we are left in the hands of tyrants that don't give people a chance to survive or let them speak. They say, “We know and do everything!” And I say, “Then do it by rolling up your trouser leg (as if urinating)!” Is it not suitable for them? Tawbah, astaghfirullah.

“Dr. This,” and “Dr. That;” there are so many titles in front of their names. There are so many doctors of Theology, they call it, ilaahiyaat. I asked one of them, “Sing a hymn (in Turkish ‘ilaahiyaat’ is similar to ‘hymn’ and ‘science’). What was wrong with madrasas? They said, “We will change everything.” You did and made everything ridiculous, until you Turks and Arabs have no honor anymore; all are after titles so that they may become a doctor, what they call, “higher education.” Show me the lower education and I may ask him, “What did you learn from lower education that you run to higher education? Tell me! What is ‘alif’?”

What can we do? May Allah make us reach good ways. We may try to make the Lord happy with us. May we not be hit by the wrath of our Lord. People do not gain any honor by building apartments. No. They don't know where honor comes from. Shaytan does not let them get accustomed to it but prevents it. We are not praising our egos. They make us say these things.

I say, “O our Lord,” and du`a comes (to my heart), “Make those disappear who cut the ways of religion. Send us from Your servants one who will teach us Your servanthood and save us from the animal attributes, and discipline us!

Tawbah yaa Rabbee, tawbah astaghfirullah, tawbah yaa Rabbee, tawbah astaghfirullah. Wa min Allahi ’t-tawfeeq.

Fatihah.

Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. (Du`a)

Fatihah.
