Pictures of Maulana Sheikh NazimThe Wisdom of One Small Ant


Madad yaa rijaalallah. Dastoor (Mawlana Shaykh stands)

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, `Azeez Allah

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Qaadir Allah

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Sultaan Allah

zid wa baark Yaa Rabbi 'l-`izzaati wa 'l-`azhamati wa 'l-Jabaroot,habeebika swa habeebi 'l-`alameen a Sayyidi 'l-Awwaleen wa ’l-Aakhireen Sayyidina Muhammad wa `ala aalihi wa as-haabihee ajma`een, `izzan sharafan wa nooran surooran hunaa wa hunaak mina 'l-azali ila 'l-abad. Dastoor. (Mawlana Shaykh sits)


Dastoor.


We are saying, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. Madad yaa Saahib al-Imdaad, yaa Sultan al-Awliyaa, yaa man huwa bi yadihi tasarruf al-mutlaq `ala haadhihi 'd-dunya iltaja'ana ilayk. We are regretting to You and running to You from every wrong one for using his existence for shaytanic purposes. We are running to the Controller of this World! Marhaban. And we are saying, Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem! Allah. (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem afrigh `alayna barakaat, yaa RijaalAllah! (Mawlana Shaykh sits) Allah, Allah.


We are trying to take away mabbaaratu n-nafs. We are asking to kick away everything from shaytanic tricks. Therefore, we have been ordered to say, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Without a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem no one can defend himself from attack, of Shaytan or our egos. May Allah grant us and give His heavenly protection for those whom declare His existence and who try to give their most high glorifying, most high majesty, most high praising. When you are saying it, it is so small beside the Creator's Adhamat, Glory and Greatness! It is nothing and will always be nothing, because He Almighty is granting that glorification to be an honor for us! We can't give any honor or glory for Allah! (Mawlana Shaykh stands) Subhaan Allah! Sultansin, yaa Allah! (Mawlana Shaykh sits)


Everything in existence is running to glorify Huuuuuuw Allah! We are nothing, we are nothing. Yet, He Almighty is granting us such a secret power that with it we may look and understand something, and it is not for His Divinely Existence, dhaat, His Essence, no. We are at a level that he Lord of Heavens created all Creation, only to know Him and glorify Him! This is because He likes to give from His endless Glory Oceans to those He created. For example, He has created oceans and within them countless creatures. And for everything there is an aim, Shaykh Hisham Effendi. asta`eedh billah (Mawlana Shaykh stands)


رَبَّنَا مَا خَلَقْتَ هَذا بَاطِلاً
Rabbanaa maa khalaqta haadhaa baatilaa.
Our Lord! You have not created (all) this without purpose! (3:191)


“Oh our Lord, You didn’t create this with no meaning.” (Mawlana Shaykh sits) Subhaan Allah. Baatil (falsehood), with no meaning, no wisdom or necessity, is haasha, impossible! Allah Almighty is saying in aayatul-kareema:

أَفَحَسِبْتُمْ أَنَّمَا خَلَقْنَاكُمْ عَبَثًا وَأَنَّكُمْ إِلَيْنَا لَا تُرْجَعُونَ
Afa-hasibtum annama khalaqnakum abathaa wa annakum ilaynaa laa turja`oon.
Did you think that We had created you only for play and that you would not have to return to Us? (23:115)


The Lord of Heavens is saying, “Did you think that We created you without meaning?” He Almighty is only asking every creature to keep their honor that was granted to them, and with that honor, glorify Him. All creatures must glorify Him according to their beings, and for every being there is a kind of glorifying. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar!


O our Attenders! Today is the day of shaytans. "What is that?" people ask. Open your eyes, today is Sunday! Sunday! People are running to enjoy themselves because it is Sunday; to eat and to drink and to do what their rides are asking. This day, Sunday! Sunday! Its name is beautiful, "Sun Day," which means the sun is shining. Yes, also saying, "Today we are free!" Do you like to be free as an honored one's freedom, or are you asking to be free as a car carrier, as a donkey or as mules or horses, where its owner takes the reins and leads them through the meadow to do everything? It is the biggest ajaa`ib, shame to you that you are making Sunday to be free for Shaytan, to make yourself under Shaytan's command, and Shaytan is making you do so many ajaa'ib, so many curious harakat, actions. Shaytan is saying, "I am never going to be happy except on the day of Sunday because people are leaving their horses, their rides, to do everything just as a car man; when he reaches to his inn, he takes away his horses and says, 'Do everything!'" Shame on Mankind a thousand times and more!


O Salafi `ulamas! Why are you not saying to the nation of Sayyidina Muhammad (s) that he was saying: (Mawlana Shaykh stands):

man tashabbaha bi-qawmin fahuwa minhum.
Who imitates a people is one of them.


(Mawlana Shaykh sits) And here, we are saying something, that people are asking tukhalid, to imitate the level of animals. Why are you not saying? O People! Bil `arabee, you are saying `utla, holiday. Europeans and non-Muslim people are using holidays because they are giving hurriyah mutlaqa, absolute freedom for their egos and their egoistic desires. Like when animals come to their inns, their owners take everything from them and say, "Now you are free," and then they run and do everything as an animal does. It is not an honor for Mankind to be like animals or to come down to animals' level. What difference is there that it's going to be Sunday? What is different for this day? They are saying, "Sunday is our free day. We can do everything that our egos are asking to do." Mashaa-Allah. It is a shame for you Muslims; you are not ashamed to follow the non-Muslim world and you are giving your egos, your rides to do everything as you like. Who is giving you that freedom?


O Salafi `ulamas! Why are you not opening your mouths to tell those people, that big mass of Muslims, that are feeling Sunday is a holiday for them, because it is a holy day for the non-Muslim world? Why are you not saying to the Muslim world that it is haraam?الحلال بين و الحرام بين Al-halaalu bayyin wa 'l-haraamu bayyin, “The permitted is clear and the forbidden is clear.” That is the Seal of Prophets' (s) command and declaration. Why are you not saying this? Where are you finding that to say as-salaatu wa 's-salaamu`alayka yaa Rasoolallah is haraam, and you are not saying anything to the non-Muslim world who are doing everything they like on Sunday? Why are you not saying that is haraam? Are you not ashamed? Then you are claiming, “We are Salaaf us-Salih `ulamas.” What is the value of your knowledge?
And Allah Almighty is ordering:

تَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَتَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ
Tamaroona bil-ma`roof wa tanhawna ani 'l-munkar.
Enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong. (3:110)


Amar bi 'l-ma`roof, wa anhaa `ani 'l-munkar, “Call to do what is good and leave the forbidden," a holy command of the Lord of Heavens. Why are you not doing that? When you are going to die something will come to you as a cobra snake or serpent surrounding your necks and will come in front of you. When you are crying and in fear, that cobra will catch you by the throat; your mouth will open and your tongue will stick out and that cobra will bite it. You may see such punishments also before you leave this life, when your bodies are in your graveyard. When they are putting you in it, so many serpents, scorpions, and poisonous spiders will be coming on you. You must believe! You must try to stop all shaytanic orders in Islamic nations; leave the other nations, but you are responsible for the whole Muslim community, everywhere! Wa dhakkir, you must remind them. If you can't do it everyday, do it on the day of pleasure for them, Sunday!


O People! Keep your honor as Muslims. Don't try to be like unbelievers who feel they are totally free ones to do everything: drinking, dancing, and playing! Why are you not saying anything when your Muslim ladies are dressing every week with a new fashion to show their bodies, that it is haraam to show their bodies to men? Why are you not opening (a broadcast) to say such a thing every weekend? Allah bidu yasa'l, Allah Almighty is going question you. You are following the commands of your wives, your daughters, and your female friends. You are not saying anything, but you are going to claim, "We are Salafi `ulamas." Salafi `ulamas are like you? With which broadcasting are you saying such a thing? And you are blaming such a person saying 100% the truth; no one can object on it, not Wahabi people also! Why do you make haraam, halaal and halaal, haraam? Allah will ask you and send on you a punishment! You are the first ones to be held responsible. Don't fear from your rulers, but keep your fear for heavenly ones, so something will not touch your head!


Therefore, from Arabian countries, after the summer season, people run to Europe to doctors to get a check up for their health. What is the reason that you are going to be shikayat, complaining? What is the reason and why are you not speaking? Speak and don't fear from rulers, because rulers must also have the fear of the Lord of Heavens, that He may send on those who are not preventing people from haraam, their families, their children, and their schools. You must come back to Islamic education and you must throw away everything coming from western countries. You must keep to the ways of all the prophets and you are not in need of protection from the western countries' weapons, no. Allah Almighty will never leave you under the "protection" of their weapons!


Allah Almighty, Huwa, He is the Guarantor! That is a very good word, “Guarantor,” Allah Almighty. They are not believing that Allah Almighty is Mutlaq, Absolute Guarantor for Muslims. Why are you running to find planes, so speedily flying and so speedily running and bombarding? Don't trust western weapons.

وَاللّهُ يَعْصِمُكَ مِنَ النَّاسِ W 'allahu ya`asimuka min an-naas, “Don’t worry, your Creator is protecting you from the people.” (5:67)

(Mawlana Shaykh stands)


Allah Almighty is saying for His most beloved servant, w 'allahu ya`asimuka, “O My beloved one! (Mawlana Shaykh sits) Don't worry about those unbelievers who may do something on you. Allah ya`asimuka min an-naas, 'Allah will protect you from people.' Your Creator is protecting you. You may be under His protection. With this, there is protection, no weapons can yirtamak, penetrate, get through, touching this and passing away, not touching to you, no. W 'allahu ya`asimuka min an-naas, don't worry."


O Muslim World! Come back! If you like to be honored ones on Earth and on the Day of Resurrection, come to the ways of the Seal of Prophets (s)! Leave technology; it will never make your life sweet. Leave that. O kings and presidents of Arabs! O number-one shaykhs, leave that. You must believe that Allah Almighty’s guarantee is the best and unchangeable. Weapons can't jump and come to you, no. But you are not believing; you are saying, “We are Salafi `ulamas,” or, “We are Muslims because we are going to Jumu`ah." Yes, you may go to Jumu`ah, it is a sign of Islam, but it is not enough. You must believe in that One to Whom you are making sajdah, that He is your Protector. Nothing can touch you from adhaab here and Hereafter; nothing can harm you, but you are not thinking.

تفكر ساعة، خير من عبادة سبعين سنة

Tafakkur sa`a khayrun min `ibadati saba`eena sannah.

Contemplation of one hour is better than worship of 70 years.


This is also a hadeeth ash-shareef. No one is trying to think. It is enough for the Arab world to know and to think that Allah Almighty is the Guarantor for Muslims. His territories, and Glory Oceans are countless, but He is making one for protecting you and making one to be guarantor for you. If He likes, Allah Almighty is saying, (Mawlana Shaykh stands), “I may make one ant.”


قَالَتْ نَمْلَةٌ يَا أَيُّهَا النَّمْلُ ادْخُلُوا مَسَاكِنَكُمْ لَا يَحْطِمَنَّكُمْ سُلَيْمَانُ وَجُنُودُهُ وَهُمْ لَا يَشْعُرُونَ

Qaalat namlatun yaa ayyuha 'n-namlu adkhuloo masaakinakum laa yahtimannakum Sulaymanu wa junooduhu wa hum laa yash`uroon
One of the ants said: "O ye ants, get into your habitations, lest Solomon and his hosts crush you (under foot) without knowing it." (27:18)


One ant is saying, "O ants! Enter your houses.” Allah Almighty is making that one ant as guarantor for the Wadi ‘l-Naml, Valley of Ants. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar! How are we believing? (Mawlana Shaykh sits) And you are getting angry with a poor and weak servant; every day they are swearing at me. The One Who is the Guarantor on this planet, that One is making me, which now I'm reaching to 90 years alhamdulillah, to speak as an ant reaching to all ants’ valleys and warning them.


O People! Don't think in that aayatu 'l-kareema, that holy verse, that Allah Almighty is making qusas, stories for people! No, you must say, “The wisdom of a small ant.” And Holy Qur'an is saying that Sayyidina Sulayman (a) was hearing that ant and then he was smiling.


O People! Believe in the Holy Qur'an and ask for those servants who have been granted something for the benefit of Mankind and for all creatures, that they may get a benefit here and Hereafter. May Allah (swt) forgive me and forgive Salafu 's-Saalih `ulamas, the mulook al-Islam, and wa li ruasaa'ahum, their heads. We are only warners and nothing else. I am one weak servant. The Lord of Heavens is making a weak servant, perhaps the weakest servant on Earth, to reach to your understanding, to take care of yourself, and to take care of your honor that the Lord of Heavens granted you. May Allah forgive us.


O People! May Allah forgive me and forgive you also, for the honor of His most honored one, Sayyidina Muhammad (s). (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits)


Fatihah.


(Mawlana Shaykh prays two raka`at Salaat ash-Shukr)


(45 minutes)


Mashaa-Allah! Alhamdulillah! Thank Allah (swt) for putting on our heads the crown of Islam.
