َوقُِلاْعَملُوْافََسیََرى ّاللهُ َعَملَُكْم
“Wa qul i’malu fasayarallahu ‘amalakum.” (Sura Tawba:105) Allah Almighty says, “Work. Allah will see the works you do” Allah Azza wa Jalla does not say to sit. He does not say to relax. He says to work. Because only with work does a person’s station rise, both materially and spiritually. It does not work with laziness. There is no such thing as, “I’m tired.” There is no getting tired. There is working says Allah Almighty and Glorious be He.
They say, “The iron that does not work rusts.” Son of man is the same way. People have iron inside and all kinds of metals too. Therefore, those give benefit when one works. It lies fallow everywhere when one does not work and he becomes nonworking. So we need to work. We need to not get tired. Do not say you are tired! Your body starts becoming inactive when you say you are tired. It starts getting sick. That time you would be harmed in every way. Allah Azza wa Jalla created people and everything.
َو ُك ُّل َش ْي ٍء ِع ن َد ه ُ ب ِ ِم ْق َد ا ٍر
“Wa kulla shay’in ‘indahu bimiqdaar.” “Everything in His sight is with due measure.” (Sura Ra’d:8) Allah Almighty has taught people how everything should be done. When people let go of themselves, they slowly fall into all kinds of diseases, laziness, and bothers. That is why there is no stopping in tariqa. There is no getting tired. Tariqa is the most important thing in our material and spiritual life. Tariqa is the essence of Islam. In its essence there is no stopping, there is no getting tired, and there is no being fed up. People are saying they are getting bored. There is no such thing. These are essential things in tariqa. Because tariqa is the essence of sharia (divine law) we need to be careful of this.
Never say you are tired, you are bored, or you should stop. Continue. Continue on this way. You can only stop in the grave and take rest. There you can lie as much as you want until the Day of Judgment. May Allah give us all strength and may He help us Inshallah.
Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq. Al-Fatiha.
