Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh
Auzu Billahi Minashaytanir Rajeem. Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, Wassalatu Wassalamu ala Rasulina Muhammadin Sayyidul Awwalin wal Akhirin, Madad Ya Rasulallah, Madad Ya As’habi RasuLillah, Madad Ya Mashayikhina, Sheykh Abdullah Daghestani, Sheykh Nazim al-Haqqani. Dastur. Tariqatunas sohba, wal khayru fil jamiyya.
People of tariqa are those who follow the way of our Holy Prophet (SAW). Because mashayikh1 come from them. It is an absolute must for people of tariqa to do the sunnats2 that our Holy Prophet (SAW) did. People of tariqa need to follow the sharia3 and the sunnat of our Holy Prophet (SAW).
Let them do whatever the sunna is, whatever they know. For example, not praying4 bareheaded. Now a new fashion emerged amongst the ladies: there are those who pray bareheaded. That is never acceptable for ladies anyway, but if men pray bareheaded they would be leaving the sunna. There are many kinds of skullcaps5. Let them at least put on a skullcap and not be bareheaded.
There are many sunnats like this. Our Holy Prophet (SAW) has thousands of sunnas. It is not possible for everybody to know them all. Let them do the sunnats of our Holy Prophet (SAW) as they learn them, since every sunnat done in End Times is a means of attaining the rewards of a hundred martyrs. Our Holy Prophet (SAW) says this. Meaning it is not a small thing, martyrdom is not an easy thing. You think about it now: you will do a little sunna and gain so much rewards.
We are giving examples such as the skullcap. In fact, wearing a silver ring is a sunnat too. Let alone, combing your beard and combing your hair are sunna. There are thousands of sunnats like these. People who make the intention for the sake of Allah (JJ) to follow the sunna of our Holy Prophet (SAW) and do the sunnat come out ahead.
There is no hardship for people who do everything according to our Holy Prophet (SAW). People think it is hard to follow the sunna. No, if you gradually do the things you know, you would gain its good deeds and rewards. You would not be deprived of that reward. May Allah make us succeed in doing all the sunnats Inshallah.
