Ṭarīqatunā ṣ- ṣuḥbah wa l-khayru fi l-jam‘iyyah.
Our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم is saying – at the end of times there will be calamities of rain and children will be disobedient. It says, “Al-maṭaru qayẓan wa l-waladu ghayẓan.” It is ḥadīth sharīf. We are living at the end of times. Both rain and snow, everything is in the hands of Allāh جل جلاله. The rain will be sent according to the state of people. And it is raining as a calamity, floods are taking everything. Everywhere is being destroyed. Sometimes people are dying. Sometimes there are big losses. And children are born disobedient, not obedient to their parents. This is the situation.
Why is it happening? Because people deserve it. We should pray to Allāh جل جلاله and ask for rain. They say rain falls by itself, things happen by themselves and mislead people by teaching this. Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla is saying in Qur’ān, “Faqultu staghfirū Rabbakum innahu kāna ghaffāran” (71:10). Make tawbah, ask forgiveness from Allāh جل جلاله, as Allāh جل جلاله is forgiving. He جل جلاله forgives maximally. Whatever you do, when you say “tawbah astaghfiru Llāh”, He جل جلاله accepts your repentance. Then what happens next; “Yursili s-samā’a ‘alaykum midrāran wa- yumdidkum bi-amwālin wa banīna wa yaj‘al lakum jannātin wa yaj‘al lakum anhāran. ( 71:11, 12 )”Allah جل جلاله sends you good rain, good provision, and good children. Then He جل جلاله Allāh gives you beautiful gardens and paradise both in dunyā and ākhirah. How will all this happen? When you are obedient to Allāh جل جلاله
If we made a mistake, we should repent. Thus Allāh جل جلاله turns that catastrophe into relief. For example, there was a calamity a couple of days ago. Nothing is left in one area here in Cyprus – not trees, not bushes, not vegetables. It hailed heavily. It was coming here too. We were inspired and started making tawbah and shukr to Allāh جل جلاله, and it turned into rain. And it watered the land well. If you decided to water like that, you wouldn’t be able to finish in five days. It is not a miracle or anything. When you carry out Allāh’s جل جلاله order, Allāh’s جل جلاله promise happens immediately. So make tawbah before such calamity comes. They say a flood came and took people away. They don’t think of the mistakes they made and to make tawbah. We make tawbah for sins we made so that Allāh جل جلاله forgives and shows mercy to us. And the rains are important.
More important is what our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said: good children. We should always be in repentance for them not to be bad. We have to ask forgiveness from Allāh جل جلاله. Allāh جل جلاله is saying it openly to everyone, not just for one section. If everyone does it, they will deserve these good things. And if you don’t do, catastrophe will reach you. They hide in cars to be saved. Even cars are smashed. In five minutes, Allāh جل جلاله leaves no building, no window, no car, no tree. Make tawbah. If you don’t make tawbah, stones will fall down on you. May Allāh جل جلاله not let it happen. May Allāh جل جلاله protect from calamities. We always ask for forgiveness from Allāh جل جلاله, in shā’a Llāh.
This time it is end time. Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم he saying when this time coming, approaching for Judgement Day, end of human being life. The human being they thought there is one billion year, three billion year for this global to finish, to it will, after it will be nothing on it. No it is not like this. Our life for human being it is there limit time and we are coming to end of this time. We have another life, al-ḥamdu liLlāh, they are forever. But for this life, it is short and for dunyā also it is short. And when the end of time coming, Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم saying, “Yakūnu l- maṭaru qayẓan wa l-waladu ghayẓan” – meaning the rain become like disaster and the children unobedient, not good people. This is for our time and it is like this. You cannot imagine how the even small children they become, like teaching them in this bad thing – like shayṭān, like devil. And the rain, when it’s coming rain, not sweet rain, flood everywhere. Everywhere destroying, dying many people. You hear this country maybe twenty people died from flood. Other – two people, other – two hundred people. You hear like this.
But Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla He جل جلاله give also how to be protected from this. He جل جلاله said from Sūrat Nūḥ “Faqultu staghfirū Rabbakum innahu kāna ghaffāran” (71:10). Nūḥ said: “I said to make for asking for forgiveness from Allāh جل جلاله.” He جل جلاله is the most extreme forgiving. He جل جلاله is, He forgive everything. When He جل جلاله forgive everything what will happen? Maybe people they say we are not feeling anything. “Yursili s-samā’a ‘alaykum midrāran” (71:11). He جل جلاله said He جل جلاله will send rain, very good rain for you, not disaster, not bad rain, not flood – nice rain . After, “Yumdidkum bi-amwālin wa-banīna” (71:12). And He جل جلاله will give you fortune and He جل جلاله”will give you children, good children. “Wa yaj‘al lakum jannāti wa-yaj‘al lakum anhārā (71:12) . And rivers. This is what in this dunyā for, if you ask for forgiveness.
And, al-ḥamdu liLlāh, before two, three days, there was heavy rain here and it was ice, like big big ice and storm and I was after breakfast seeing coming on trees. Allāh جل جلاله He make us to remember this and ask for “astaghfiru Llāh astaghfiru Llāh astaghfiru Llāh” until after one minute be changing to rain, very nice rain. All this area it was raining very nice everywhere. You feel if you give three days water cannot be like this. But there is one, maybe ten or fifteen kilometer from here, this people they are never remembering anything and whole area they crush their grapes and vegetable – everything finish there. You cannot find even one. And it is not miracle. No. It just we obeying what Allāh جل جلاله He saying.
They saying ask for forgiveness. We ask for forgiveness not – everybody can do this. No need to be Shaykh, no need to be ‘ālim scholar. Only ask He جل جلاله said and He جل جلاله promise He جل جلاله will be do this. And that what happen – no miracle. No. From us or just must remember this. And for also, the most important, children, our children. So you must be ask for forgiveness every time from Allāh جل جلاله and He جل جلاله is happy with us He جل جلاله change. Even in this time can be your place good, your children also safe, obedient good people, acceptable people in Divinely Presence and good for people also.
So it is big favour to remember and to ask forgiveness. Everything, if any difficult happen, ask for forgiveness – astaghfiru Llāh astaghfiru Llāh astaghfiru Llāh Thank you. Wa min Allāhi t- tawfīq, al-Fātiḥah.
