Maulana Sheikh Nazim Do Not Disobey and Blame It on the Will of Allah


Madad, O Seal of Prophets (s), Master of the First and Last Ones! A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. May Allah protect us from the whispers of the devil. Those are whispers, not realities; it is empty and corrupt talk.

Allah (swt) said:

وَالسَّمَاء رَفَعَهَا وَوَضَعَ الْمِيزَانَ
Wa ’s-sama’a rafa`ahaa wa wada`aa ‘l-Meezaan. And the firmament has He raised high, and He has set up the Balance (of Justice). (Ar-Rahman, 55:7)

اللَّهُ الَّذِي أَنزَلَ الْكِتَابَ بِالْحَقِّ وَالْمِيزَانَ
Allahu ‘l-ladhi anzala ‘l-kitaaba bil Haqqi wa ‘l-Meezaan. It is God Who has sent down the Book in Truth, and the Balance (by which to weigh conduct). (Ash-Shura 42:17)

There is a balance for the mind and a balance for the self. There is a divine balance and a devilish balance. Allah (swt) has put the balance to let people use it to distinguish between right and wrong. If the human being uses the balance of Islamic law that Allah (swt) sent down upon His Prophet (s), Prophet (s) says:

الحلال بين والحرام بين
Al-haraamu bayyinu wa 'l-halaalu bayyin. What is forbidden is clear and what is permitted is clear.

If the human being does not distinguish between right and wrong, then he is not sane and therefore not liable for divine judgment. If he can distinguish between right and wrong, then how can he blame his mistakes on Allah? May Allah protect us. This is not the balance of Truth.

Allah (swt) said:

قُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ النَّاسِ ،مَلِكِ النَّاسِ، إِلَهِ النَّاسِ، مِن شَرِّ الْوَسْوَاسِ الْخَنَّاسِ
Qul, “A`oodhu bi Rabbi ‘n-Naas, Maliki ‘n-Naas, `Ilaahi ‘n-Naas, min sharri ‘l-waswaasi ‘l-khannas.” Say, “I seek refuge with the Lord and Cherisher of Mankind, the King (or Ruler) of Mankind, the God (as Judge) of Mankind, from the mischief of the whisperer (of evil), who withdraws (after his whisper). (An-Nas, 114:1-4)

This Man, who claims to speak with the tongue of the devil, is free to take the road of evil whispers or the road of Truth. In this world there exists right and wrong. Can the human being distinguish between them? Yes. So why does he smoke and say that he has no choice? Did Allah Almighty say He left His servant to smoke? No. Man has will power like the steering wheel of the car: if you do not use it to direct the car, it is not right. Man says he is free. If you are free, use your freedom as you like, but Allah has given us responsibility and a mind. Any man who chooses to be like animals will not have will power like human beings. If there is no will power then humans are animals, but Allah has distinguished humans by granting them will power.

All this is devilish whispers! There are thousands and thousands of books and references in which people have written about devilish whispers. It makes people leave Truth and follow falsehood. Did Allah order you to smoke or forbid you to do so? Did Allah allow you to drink alcohol or forbid you to do so? However, you are arguing with Allah and going against His order. Those thoughts are not acceptable! Many no-mind people have spoken this way.

Allah (swt) said of them:

أُوْلَـئِكَ كَالأَنْعَامِ بَلْ هُمْ أَضَلُّ أُوْلَـئِكَ هُمُ الْغَافِلُونَ
Oolaa’ika ka ’l-an`ami bal hum ‘adallu, oolaa’ika humu ‘l-ghafiloon. They are like cattle; no, more misguided, for they are heedless (of warning). (Al-A'raf, 7:179)

They are crossing the limits of Allah Almighty and that is not acceptable! Immediately the person is considered on the row of devils. I would give this man a cup of poison and ask him to drink it; since everything is from Allah (as this man claims), let him drink poison. If I give him honey, he drinks it. If I give him poison, he does not drink it. Why? What if I give him urine to drink? This man is naughty. Smoking is not allowed. Astaghfirullah.

O Allah! Have mercy on us and on our weakness. Please make us understand. Allah Almighty taught humanity.

الرَّحْمَنُ ، عَلَّمَ الْقُرْآنَ
Ar-Rahmanu `allam a-Qur’an. (God) Most Gracious! It is He Who has taught the Qur'an. (Ar-Rahman 55:1-2)

For whom, for animals or humans? Who learned? Allah Almighty taught Prophet (s) and Prophet (s) taught humanity. There was one majdhoob (insane with Allah’s love) scholar in Beirut; perhaps he has passed away. He used to read the holy hadith to those ignorant ones from Wahhabis and Salafis, and then started telling them, “Why you don’t accept those ahadeeth? Did I bring them from my father’s house? I am bringing them from the Qur’an and holy hadith. How you are refuting?”

The Qur’an and hadith are filled with trillions of oceans of knowledge that never ends! We ask that man, does he hear or not? He is saying that Allah Almighty ordered him to drown. Why do you throw yourself? Don’t say Allah Almighty ordered you to throw yourself in the sea!

Wa min Allahi 't-tawfeeq. Tawbah. Many ignorant people destroy the faith of people. May Allah fight them!

وَقُلْ جَاء الْحَقُّ وَزَهَقَ الْبَاطِلُ إِنَّ الْبَاطِلَ كَانَ زَهُوقًا
Wa qul, “Jaa al-Haqqu wa zahaqa ‘l-baatilu inna ‘l-baatila kana zahooqa.” And say,"Truth has (now) arrived and falsehood perished, for falsehood is (by its nature) bound to perish." (Al-Isra`, 17:81)

We have the Truth and they have falsehood!

Fatihah.

May Allah cut the tongue of those who object so they cannot say a word! They are saying, “If Allah did not want me to do these actions, I would not be able to.” This is the talk of the devil, when he told Allah (swt):

قَالَ فَبِمَا أَغْوَيْتَنِي لأَقْعُدَنَّ لَهُمْ صِرَاطَكَ الْمُسْتَقِيمَ
Qaala, “Fabima ‘aghwaytani la’aq`udanna lahum Sirat al-Mustaqeem.” He said, “Because You have thrown me out of the way, lo! I will lie in wait for them on Your Straight Way.” (Al-`Araaf, 7:16)

The devil blamed Allah Almighty, astaghfirullah! No one can speak that way or their creed is the creed of the devil and tell them they are devils also, a`oodhu billah! The whole world understands this. Sayyidina Adam (a) did not say as the devil said. The devil said, “You have made me go wrong,” and Sayyidina Adam (a) said:

قَالاَ رَبَّنَا ظَلَمْنَا أَنفُسَنَا وَإِن لَّمْ تَغْفِرْ لَنَا وَتَرْحَمْنَا لَنَكُونَنَّ مِنَ الْخَاسِرِينَ
Qaala, “Rabbana zhalamna anfusanaa wa in lam taghfir lanaa wa tarhamnaa lanakoonanna min ‘l-khaasireen.” They said, "Our Lord! We have wronged our own souls. If You forgive us not and bestow not upon us Your mercy, we shall certainly be lost." (Al-`Araaf, 7:23)

This is a very important distinction.

Fatihah.
