Maulana Sheikh NazimThe tunnel to pass
What does the happiness or sadness of a human being depend on? It depends on whether he is obedient to Allah’s Commands or not, respecting Him, or denying Him and following Shaitan... All Prophets have taught this and it is repeated at every Juma, Friday prayer, everywhere in the world to remind people: "Oh people, be obedient to Allah, respect Him, fear Him, because He can see you everywhere. Wherever you are, you are under His Eyes, Nazar. Protect your heart, don’t let evil enter in it. Among the creatures you have been given the highest rank, and Allah has chosen you for His Service, and that you may govern the world as His Deputies, according to His Laws. But you are throwing away this honour, and you want to make your own laws... what kind of Pharaohs have you become?”
And the world is getting darker day by day... Now we are in Muharram, who knows what the coming year will bring to us... For 1419 years the unbelievers have been trying to finish Islam, but 142o has come, and we will meet the Christian year 2ooo during it. We don’t know what will happen in 1421, or if there will be more years to come. Only after 2ooo their counting will stop, and then we will count according to the Hijri calendar, the Islamic calendar. Maybe by next year half of humanity will not be alive any more...
Allah is saying that He is giving the chance to rebellious man to remember Him, but people are misusing His generosity and make every bad thing even worse. The Holy Prophet had been asking from Allah Almighty that his Nation, his Ummah, might not be punished like previous nations by something coming from the skies or from the earth. So Allah Almighty said: "I will punish some of you through others of you..."
We shall see so much Bela, misfortune, this year... Oh people, you must understand the wisdom of your creation and existence. Life is short, death is waiting for us, Akhirat is in front of us, and we will have to give an answer to the Angels of the Grave...
It is as if the whole world is in a tunnel which looks like an X : it is getting more and more narrow, and from a certain point on it is getting wider and wider up to the eternal... Only spiritually strong people will pass through this tunnel. Materialist people won’t be able to make it, the power of their batteries will be finished. Only the spiritual power of the soul can help you...
Allah Almighty has ordered us to read the Holy Quran, to make Dhikr and Salawat, to strengthen our souls and to connect to the spiritual world. But we are not understanding, we are misunderstanding Islam... The orders and duties in Islam are only for connecting you with the spiritual world. You have to know what worship is for.
Only because of your soul, which is coming from Malakut, may you be called human beings. According to your physical body you are animals... You must recognize your value. We should try to control our nafs, ego, but we are doing everything to please it, serving it...
You must try to shine with the light of your soul. This light has been granted to you from the Heavens through the Holy Prophet sws. Search for this light!
If not, so many things will happen this year... May Allah keep us on the path of truth. Keep yourselves and learn to control your ego, so that you may be able to rise to Malakut... Fatiha.
