Allāh Almighty chooses who is spiritual, who is ṣūfī. It comes as a gift not by effort. And it is important to have a perfect shaykh, murshid kāmil, to love and to teach each one according to his needs.
Hādhā min Faḍli Rabbī
Aug17 2019 English 16min
Sharing the good tidings of the birth of his grandson, Shaykh Bahauddin reminds us to be thankful to Allāh ﷻ for all His ﷻ many favours. Allāh Almighty has given us in particular three kinds of wealth: Health, children, and īmān. Servants do not complain but are thankful.
Jum‘ah Is a Golden Opportunity
Aug16 2019 English 5min
Jum‘ah prayer comes only at one time, on one day in the week and with it a door of opportunity opens briefly for the people praying and then closes. We should be thankful to Allāh Almighty for this gift and golden opportunity.
Know the Value of You
Aug14 2019 English 20min
We are nothing. Everything is Allāh ﷻ. We are so small and yet Allāh ﷻ has given us such value. He ﷻ makes everything perfect even the sacrifice of animals for food. Don’t follow your ego. Follow the way of Rasūlu Llāh ﷺ.
The Month of Pilgrimage
Aug04 2019 English 18min
We have reached the month of Dhū l-Ḥijjah when all the Muslims join together at one point to give their love. Think what a power made this to happen and don’t waste your life searching for why and what. Use your heart, which Allāh Almighty made His ﷻ maqam.
Aug03 2019 English 18min
Be like Sayyidunā Ayyūb (as) who had everything and when it was taken away, he continued to thank his Lord ﷻ. Don’t complain, don’t be envious, don’t make drama. Use the mind Allāh Almighty gave you to appreciate His ﷻ great gifts and be happy that you were not created a donkey.
No Place for Drama
Jul28 2019 English 15min
Taṣawwuf is to be a good one and to ask good for others. There is no place for drama. Their death day is their best day, the day they go to their love. If you really want something of value from this dunyā, keep the love of Rasūlu Llāh.
Rasūlu Llāh ﷺ Brought Civilisation
Jul27 2019 English 25min
Allāh ﷻ sent Sayyidunā Muḥammad ﷺ as a mercy for everyone. He ﷺ brought humanity to humans. Dig under every civilisation, East or West, and you will find his ﷺ influence. A story about ‘Umar ibnu l-Khaṭṭāb (ra) illustrates the fine character of Muslims and what they are lacking today.
Adab and Discipline
Jul07 2019 English 21min
Rasūlu Llāh ﷺ is like the sun, giving light and life. He ﷺ is the example of the best adab and discipline. When you lose adab you lose everything. Muslims have lost both. The Shaykh gives as examples – Egypt, South Korea, and Rome.
The Value of Your Prophet ﷺ
Jul06 2019 English 20min
Our Du‘ā’ should be, “Yā Rabbi put us with the ṣāliḥīn.” They are the ones who know the value of the Prophet ﷺ and who are not lazy in their love for him ﷺ. Everything else you love, you will leave except the eternal love for Rasūlu Llāh ﷺ and Allāh Almighty and the link for that is a murshid.
Be a Good One
Jul02 2019 English 14min
Today all people are trying to please shayṭān. No one is thanking or thinking of Allāh ﷻ. But no matter what you do, shayṭān will always be your enemy. Mawlānā's (q) advice to us was always to be a good one and teach others to be good ones also.
Try to Be Happy with Your Lord
Jun30 2019 English 21min
Allāh ﷻ loves those who are thankful and happy with what He ﷻ gives. He ﷻ wants you to be happy here and promises happiness in the Hereafter. So don’t look for drama, don’t dig for sadness that was buried years ago. In every occasion there is some happiness.
With the Eyes of Your Heart
Jun29 2019 English 24min
Those who know to give ṣalāt wa-salām on the Prophet ﷺ are mu’min. Those who deny it are munāfiq. Allāh ﷻ gives to the mu’min the ability to see with the eyes of the heart and opens his understanding. He will never be the slave of anyone. Muslims today are the slaves of everybody.
Jun25 2019 English 18min
"Don’t be sad (lā taḥzan), Allāh ﷻ is with you” (9:40). This is what Allāh ﷻ said to His Prophet ﷺ and what the Prophet ﷺ repeated to his best friend Abū Bakr (ra) when it seemed they were trapped in a cave in the desert. These are words we must remember in these days of tyrants. Believe in your Creator ﷻ before it is too late.
Flower Your Heart
Jun22 2019 English 15min
We are weak and taṣawwuf puts us in shape. We need a murshid to give us guidance although we can learn from everything, a donkey or a child. We need refreshment for the heart not Wahhābī lectures.
We Are Spoiled Rich Babies
Jun18 2019 English 20min
We are the worst generation of Muslims since the time of the Prophet ﷺ. The Muslims are born like billionaires. Allāh ﷻ has given them the best of His ﷻ treasures, Islām, and they waste it and don’t appreciate it and lose it. Islām never changes but the Muslims of today are lost.
Children of Shayṭān
Apr23 2019 English 22min
It is almost Ramaḍān. The ego is never happy with Ramaḍān because it becomes powerless and unable to work fitnah. Allāh ﷻ honoured humanity so do not try to be an animal like those who kill innocent believers. Those who promote this behaviour, like the Wahhabis, are the children of Shayṭān. They only believe in richness.
No Ordinary Fire
Apr16 2019 English 14min
The cathedral in Paris burned yesterday. Even with all the technology there was nothing they could do. Humanity lost some of its heritage as it did with the loss of holy maqams in Syria and Buddhist statues in Afghanistan. Although we are not happy about it we must try to derive some lesson from the loss. You may think you are free to do anything but Allāh ﷻ has the last say.
