Ṭarīqatunā ṣ-ṣuḥbah wa l-khayru fi l-jam‘iyyah.
Mankind is in a search of something. Since birth until death, they are trying to get some happiness and peace. They are doing various things thinking, “Will our condition be better if we do this? Will we become happier?” And families put them in schools at first. Despite their ability to learn, they force them to study. Then comes work. After that, they get married looking for ways to get busy. They still search for happiness.
This world is a place of tests. You cannot be happy continuously. Some people, by the wisdom of Allāh جل جلاله, are troubled ones, their whole lives pass in tests. Some bear and some cannot bear such a life. Not all people are like that. But there is some that Allāh جل جلاله willed to be so. People come across problems one after another. Another trouble comes as soon as one is over. Some are patient but most are not patient and it is worse for them. If they realize it comes from Allāh جل جلاله, it becomes easier for them. They know it isn’t for nothing. But a person without belief doesn’t know what to do. Some are not patient. Some even commit suicide because of such matters.
And peace and happiness – with belief make everything fine for a man. Whatever comes from Allāh جل جلاله, be it a favour or a trouble, who says it comes from Mawlá جل جلاله and is patient, doesn’t lose peace. Because he knows where he comes from and where he will go. He knows why things happened, why Allāh جل جلاله created us and why he is in such situation. People without belief are objecting. Who has no belief doesn’t know where they come from and where they will go. Their condition is difficult, their situation is bad. Therefore, we have the biggest weapon, the biggest favour – the favour of īmān. Our weapon is belief. We face all difficulties with it. When we have it, we are at peace.
Our belief should grow. Remember Allāh جل جلاله every moment. Make dhikr of Allāh جل جلاله. To make dhikr is to remember Allāh جل جلاله, not only with tasbīḥ but also with heart. Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla should be in your heart. He جل جلاله is seeing us. What comes to us is from Him جل جلاله. When we believe that everything is from Allāh جل جلاله, we are fine. If they say, “Did I do something so that this happened to me?” That is possible too. Sometimes when people do wrong, Allāh جل جلاله sends more troubles to them. And some are sent as a test, as we said.
May Allāh جل جلاله protect all of us. May He جل جلاله not give us a test we can’t pass. Because you can be treated with kindness or you can be treated with testing. We are not people of test. We should always pray that He جل جلاله treats us with kindness and mercy. We shouldn’t ask for burdens we cannot carry.
Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla He جل جلاله is our Creator and human beings, all human beings, they are wondering for what happen, what some and looking after happiness – where they can find happiness. Whole life they running after this thing happiness. From beginning when small boy their family they try to teach them. Some of them teaching them only to look for succeed to study. After study to have job. After job they can married, they can have family. This whole human being. But some of them…
Most of them they are forgetting the most important thing – to give them belief, to be believer. Because they are looking for happiness and happiness only with belief can be. Because our life nobody they have happiness for whole life. Sometimes happening something for everybody in this world. The most richest one and the most poorest one also they have some test for them, something. Cannot be whole life happy. Must be sadness, something wrong, something bad can be happen for all human being. In this world it is temporary, temporary world. Next world it will forever but this like only to little while. So don’t look for happiness for whole life but you, if you are not believer never will be happy here.
But if you are believer everything coming you know from your Lord جل جلاله, your Creator Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla. And many awliyā’u Llāh saint they was saying what you come from our Lord even bad – they not say bad thing – but what not good thing, trouble or any misery come they are happy. “This is coming from our Lord.” Happiness coming also they are happy – this coming from, we are accept this and we must we are happy because we know from where coming. We are knowing where we will go, in shā’a Llāh.
But who are not believer it is problem for them because all time they are not happy, objecting for everything and not satisfy with anything. Because they don’t know, they thought they can do what they in this world what they want. No. Something you cannot do. Something you can do. Some things, many things you cannot do. For this you are, they are miserable and unhappy. Happiness as we said with belief and accept. When you becoming more believe, you more happy. Because you are with your Lord. Every time who was with his Lord he must be happy. With Sulṭān he must be happy. When he say make praying the most nearest time for servant to be with his Lord in praying, especially in sajdah the most near. So it is happiness in this world.
Many of them they are not looking for even paradise. Saints saying, “We are here also in paradise with our Lord and what He جل جلاله when He جل جلاله will put next life also paradise it will be ok. But here also we are happy with our Lord. We are happy to be His servant, to be He create us and put us in this shape.” What He جل جلاله say in Qur’ān: “Wa laqad karramnā banī Ādam” (17:70). He جل جلاله said, “We جل جلاله are make human being most highest position, most honorable creature.” This is the biggest happiness for them.
This is what prophets and saint and all this holy people trying to teach people and people they are not caring. Only they are looking for studying, for work, for or and everything. And they are looking for happiness with dirty thing, with bad thing. And this people they are giving them happiness, with very clean, very nice shape but this people running after their ego and they are be miserable here and hereafter also. Allāh جل جلاله save us from our ego and to be…
Allāh جل جلاله give us strong belief and we are asking not to make to test us. To not give what we cannot – burden. It is asking from Him جل جلاله mercy. Not asking something we cannot do, in shā’a Llāh. Wa min Allāhi t-tawfīq, al-Fātiḥah.
