Ṣuḥbah of Hajjah Ruqqaiyah Sultan
Dated 25 April 2020 / 02 Ramaḍan 1441
Insha Allah, today we start to make sohbah, “Ta zakar inna zikr ta’a fa’al mumineen”. My intention Insha Allah, to make, to remind you again and again and again about the fikr, the fikr, how to , to take wuduh, to take, to pray Salah, to, for Fasting, for Zakat and Hajj.
This, one day, Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم ,was sitting and one good looking man came to him wearing all white and he was asking, he said, ‘I want to ask you some questions’, he sat in front of Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم , his knees were touching Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم knees, then, Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, ‘Ask’. He said, ‘What is Islam’? Islam is Shahadat “Ašhadu an lā ilāha illā-llāh” and Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, ‘ Islam is Shahadat’, “Ašhadu an lā ilāha illā-llāh wa ašhadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa rasūluhu” to, to be a muslim, it is to say one time only one time ” Ašhadu an lā ilāha illā-llāh wa ašhadu anna Muhammadan ‘ abduhu wa rasūluhu” صلى الله عليه وسلم, and this is you become muslim when whatever you have before it is forgiven.
If, because, ‘Lā ilāha illā -ilāha, Muhammadur rasùlu -llāh’, is cleaning what behind, everything, everything ,all the sins what you are making before when become muslim, one time saying, ‘Lā ilāha illā -ilāha, Muhammadur rasùlu -llāh’ صلى الله عليه وسلم, it is whoever say this even if doesn’t make any, anything any worshipping but the name is muslim and they made one time shahadat, promise that they go to heavens but after cleaning and they go to heaven like that, and this person is last person coming from, from hell to heavens , his name is Ruhaina, That Hajjah Anne used to tell about this, any person Allah عزوجل, take out of the with his mercy from the hell to put in heavens in paradise, the person comes to the door of the heaven and then begging, begging that Allah give, put him in the heavens, already that he is for, he or she is forgiven to, then going inside saying only ‘ I want only 1 meter, was 1 meter only, 1 meter square, I sit inside the door of the heaven, paradise. Then when sitting in the inside afterwards little 10 meter square, then after that asking for more for more then coming address from Allah عزوجل telling the angels that, ‘give him his share or her share’, and the share of this person is that it is like the world, the world, the duniya, 40 times like duniya size the share of this person , the last one coming out of hell. This is for who has iman 1, 1 point of iman in their heart or one time saying, ‘Lā ilāha illā -ilāha, Muhammadur rasùlu -llāh’, with iman they, because they don’t make, the practicing and they have to have punishment . In judgement day it is up to Allah عزوجل to forgive us or to make us punish and that we come back again, Insha Allah we are not in hell but in heaven that’s our hope to, to , to heavens again, paradise.
Anyway, this is first shart, first rule of Islam is to become to say, “Ašhadu an lā ilāha illā-llāh wa ašhadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa rasūluhu”….. second is Salah, second rule of Islam , it is five pillars, second is Salah, Salah is prayer, to pray 5 times a day, Allah عزوجل, first one Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, has his prophet hood, first order was his, they, he was praying, from this praying but he was praying 2 rakah, 2 rakah in each time from the prayer times when he was raised to Miraj, it was ordered to pray, Salah 50 times but Hazrat e Musa was saying, ‘It is too much, my ummah, my nation was, it was too much for them, then please ask Allah عزوجل to make it less, make it less make it less, then its 5 times a day but each time is for like because, in Quran also each good thing you do you have 10 rewards, so for each prayer, we are praying that, we are praying like 10 prayers, like 50 prayers in 5 times, Alhamdulillah this is Salah.
The third thing is Zakat, it comes Salah itar Zakat, Zakat is to give charity from your share, from your money, from your, what you own, what you have from gold or what you have trade, you have animals, you have thing, you have to give share from this to poor people , it is lot of mathematical thing that to but the more simple one is 1 in 40, and if you have 40 gold you give 1 , 1 as zakat, this zakat, is also to always in Quran, it ‘Iqamus Salat Itaus Zakat’, together always together, to pray to give zakat , to pray to give zakat, its nearly 40 times together, Allah mentioned it Quran Kareem so its very important, lots of people are may be neglecting this thing but it is , it is important, Allah عزوجل, because, we have to take all care of all poor people, our, to make, your what you are trading, what you are having, Zakat is to clean your money and also benefit of the society, Zakat only you can give only for muslims, for muslims, for adults and for sane, not crazy ones, Inshaa Allah, I will talk about it more later on. Sadaqa, you can give to anybody any, any religion any big, small ,crazy, sane, insane doesn’t matter you can give Sadaqa but Zakat the person should be Muslim and Zakat also, this I talk to you later about it, Insha Allah, this is now for today small introduction, Fourth is Siyam, Siyam is to fast, fast Allah عزوجل order to fast Shahrul Ramadan, I, read yesterday, some place said, you must not say Ramadan, you have to say like Allah say in Quran Shahrul Ramadan.
It is Abdul Qadir Geylani, Hazratleri, saying it, his book it Shahrul Ramadan, is to, Allah order to fast Shahrul Ramadan and Sub Haan Allah its only one time mentioned in Quran and because of mercy of Allah we have lunar system, we have Ramadan in every season, so every 30- 32 years it make one date, coming the same date, fasting is also to keep your ,not eating ,not drinking, not having relationship with your husband and this is shown the outside but also to keep your tongue, your heart from thinking or also your hands from doing bad thing to keep it and also it is Allah عزوجل, it give the rewards nobody knows, except us, Allah عزوجل he give the rewards of it because when Allah عزوجل created it all it thing also it make tarbiya, training the your nafs, your ego, it is fasting, fasting because Allah عزوجل created soul and nafs, soul come, say to soul come, soul come and mind, mind, aqal, aqal says to, not soul, aqal , the mind obeyed but nafs the ego say no, then say ‘who, who are you’, said, ‘ I am, I am, you are, you are’ and then Allah عزوجل ordered to put ego in hell in fire 100 year, 1000 year , 1000 years and after coming out saying what is ,’ who, who am I’ , he said, ‘you are you , I am I am’, put there Allah ordered to put in cold hell in freezing hell, 1000 more year and then came out say, ‘you, you, me, me’, 3rd time said, put in the hell of hunger, hunger after this coming out saying, ‘who , who, who am I’, said, ‘you are Allah my lord, I am your weak servant’, so hunger is it is good for your ego and it is Allah عزوجل, this fasting it is something you don’t know, you just keep your mouth that is all the, the worshipping you do with prayer, you pray up and down, you read and even if you don’t do anything with fasting just keep your mouth closed, not eating, not drinking and sleeping all, all day it is accepted intention, with intention making fasting and it is like worshipping like this Allah knows the wisdom of it and Allah reward it endlessly. Alhamdulilah, we have it every month, every year and Allah give us power and health Insha Allah to keep fasting and also make people who are not fasting give them health to fast and who are not fasting because they don’t want to fast Allah give them hidayat, Allah guidance to fast Insha Allah and the fifth thing is Hajj, the hajj the fifth pillar hajj, to visit Allah عزوجل’s house, Kaaba e Muazamma in Makkah e Mukarrama once in your lifetime its enough, I think for the, when you go to Hajj you know the wisdom of why it is only one time, lifetime. What, this is five pillars of Islam.
So this man who was sitting in front of Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, said, ‘you are right sadaqt’, then he asked, ‘What is iman? What is iman ya Rasool Allah? Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم answered, “Iman is, ‘Aamantu Billahi wa malai katihi wa kutubihi wa rasoolihi wa bil yaumil aakhir wa bil qadri khairihi wa sharrihi minallah wal basa badal maut, haqqun Ašhadu an lā ilāha illā-llāh wa ašhadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa rasūluhu “. Iman it is 6, it is 6 parts , to believe in Allah عزوجل la sharika lah and mala, wa malaikatihi, his angels , Allah عزوجل, created angels it is all over the place , angels ,they are light , they are not male or female Allah knows their, gender not gender, creation, he created from light and there is angel in every place you know big angels 4 angel, Jibril, Mikaeel, Azraeel and Asrafeel, Asrafeel, Azraeel, each one has different job. But most of angels helping with so many things angels in the creating, in mother womb helping the baby to be created, angels in food, angels when you are cooking, when you are washing and angels on your shoulders writing what your right and your wrong and angels in the heaven, in the paradise, angels in the hell, also, the angels zabaniya is angels, of, zabaniya the one who is guarding the hell of angels, to believe in angels and wa malaikatihi wa kutubihi to believe in his books, there is 104 book, 100 are pages coming 10 for Adam عليه السلام, I think, 10 for Idris, 10 for Ibrahim عليه السلام 40, 40 for Idris I think, this, the size of the pages I don’t know exactly but books of first book came to Hazrat e Moosa , Taurat, Hazrat e Daud, Zaboor, Hazrat e Isa, Injeel and Hazrat e Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم ,Quran so 4 , 4 holy books and 100 pages, to believe in them, word of Allah and it is orders of Allah عزوجل that is , and wa malaikatihi wa kutubihi wa Rasoolihi and to believe in all prophets عليه السلام , from Adam عليه السلام to Hazrat Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم , Allah sent many, many many prophets to , to tell people, to guide people to right path, to say ‘Lā Ilāha illā -llāh’ , to iman we believe in all of them, to believe in all of them, we don’t make separation in any, any of them, we believe from Adam عليه السلام to Hazrat Muhammed, in Quran its only mentioned 28 of them but with hadith and right sources, that there is 124000 prophets came to all nations and Quran say ‘ Wa li kulli kaumin had’, Allah عزوجل said, we sent to every nation a guide, so to believe in Rasool is also part of iman, all the Rasool, we don’t say, o this, no , we believe in all of them .
‘Wa bil, Yaumil aakhir’, to believe in akhira, in the last day, after, after death there is resurrection and we there is also qiyamah and to believe in this of, and the 6th one is to believe in Qadr, the destiny that Allah wrote to you, good and bad , to believe in Qadr good and bad, we believe in this we don’t say this is from this is good, this is bad and or what Allah order us we have to do if something bad coming to us we say, we say Astagfirullah, if something good coming for us, we say Alhamdulilah wa shukrulillah, we don’t say Allah write it for us and we just leave it Allah give us also small will power that we can make on our, leave for us little bit decision will, so we can decide to do good or to do bad, some people say no it is all written, but, no it is not like this we have to believe it, it is, ‘ khairihi wa sharrihi minnallah’, then this man said to Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, “Sadaqt, you are right”, then he ask third question, he said, “Wal ihsan, what is ihsan? Ihsan is , it is to do good without making, no, to do good without expecting reward, I think so, then Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, “Ihsan is to , to pray to worship Allah عزوجل, as you are seeing him, but if don’t see him he is seeing you. This person said, “Yes, you are right”, then he gave salam to Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and went and the sahabas was, the companions were asking, “Who is that man, you know he is asking you and telling you, you are right”. He said, “This is Jibril عليه السلام came and like a man shaped to teach you, your religion”.
