This too will pass, a phrase written everywhere in Ottoman times. Life is a river only going in one direction and Allāh ﷻ is in control. Life is short so prepare for Ākhirah. Mawlānā (q) said old age is like a jacket of fire yet everyone asks to live longer. He tells stories of Nūḥ (as), Dhū l-Qarnayn (as), and Ibn ‘Arabī (q) in illustration.
Allāh ﷻ Is the Director of the Earthly Stage
May09 2020 English 23min
Allāh ﷻ is the director, the earth is the stage, and all of us are the actors. Allāh ﷻ gives us a little time to learn to surrender. The Awliyā’ and Prophets are the good actors who never rest in trying to please their Lord. We are the weak ones needing their help. Try to be a good one because your personal qiyāmah is coming.
Food for the Hungry Man
May08 2020 English 36min
Allāh ﷻ gave us thirty days of fast. There is nothing more valuable for the hungry man than food and water. This brings us back to basics and Allāh ﷻ loves the humble. The religion of Ādam (as) is like the crescent moon and the religion of Muḥammad ﷺ is like the full moon. The complete can never accept to be incomplete again. Only Islām is complete with true fasting, sajdah, and cleanliness.
The Legacy of Mawlānā (q)
May07 2020 English 20min
The legacy of Mawlānā (q) continues because he was continuing the legacy of Rasūlu Llāh ﷺ. They are alive in their graves continuing until Qiyāmah. You must look for your own qiyāmah and get yourself ready. Don't fear the virus, fear Allāh ﷻ. Each day say a hundred times Astaghfiru Llāha l-‘Aẓīm wa-atūbu ilayh.
My Soul Is for You ﷻ
May03 2020 English 31min
Islām didn't come with singing and qaṣīdah. People gave their lives for Allāh ﷻ and His Prophet ﷺ. We don't want to be part of the New World Paranoia Symphony. We continue to love Allāh ﷻ and Rasūlu Llāh ﷺ and we give our soul for them.
This Is a Special Ramaḍān
May02 2020 English 22min
What is happening today is a sign of Sayyidunā Mahdī (as). It is very rare to have a Ramaḍān with five Jum‘ahs. The mind works with ego but the heart works alone and is never mistaken. Consult your heart. Whatever Allāh ﷻ sends we accept.
The Circle Is Broken
May01 2020 English 28min
The dunyā system may not recover from this crisis. The economic circle is broken and we need to become more self-dependent, to bake our own bread and take care of our needs. In these difficult days try to make people’s hearts full of love and joy. To make people happy is to make Allāh ﷻ happy. To satisfy the hearts of people is to satisfy Allāh Almighty.
