Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh,

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.
ٍ وَلَا رَطْبٍ وَلَا يَابِسٍ إِلَّا فِي كِتَابٍ مُبِينٍ
“Wala ratbin wala yaabisin illa fi kitabin mubeen.” (Sura An’am:59) (And no moist or dry thing but that it is written in a clear record.) Everything is written in the Glorious Koran. Things that will happen from the time of Adam Alayhis Salam to the Day of Judgment are written. It teaches and shows everything. Some pass over a sura quickly because it is short.
Authu Billahi Minash-shaitanir Rajim. Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim.
أَرَأَيْتَ الَّذِي يُكَذِّبُ بِالدِّينِ فَذَٰلِكَ الَّذِي يَدُعُّ الْيَتِيمَ وَلَا يَحُضُّ عَلَىٰ طَعَامِ الْمِسْكِينِ فَوَيْلٌ لِلْمُصَلِّين
It says, “Ara’aytallathe yukathibu biddeen. Fathalikallathe yadu’ulyateem. Wala yahuddu ‘ala ta’am al-miskeen. Fawaylun lilmusalleen.” (Sura al-Ma’un:1-4) (Have you seen the one who denies the Recompense? For that is the one who drives away the orphan. And does not encourage the feeding of the poor. So woe to those who pray). So it says “woe” to those who pray. Which type of those who pray are woed and their situation is pitied?
الَّذِينَ هُمْ يُرَاءُونَ وَيَمْنَعُونَ الْمَاعُونَ
“Allathena hum yura’un. Wayamna’un al-ma’un.” (Sura al-Ma’un:6-7) (Those who make show of their deeds. And withhold simple assistance.) They are the ones who are in hypocrisy1. They are in riya by offering their prayers in great awe2 in front of people. They pray in a very good way to make show to people. They show themselves to be good in front of people, but when it comes to help, when it comes to helping Islam and when it comes to helping people they do not allow it. May Allah avoid us from this state Inshallah.
These things happen: when the Shaykh comes all works are done. When he is not around – nothing. This is complete riya. We are giving a little example of riya from what people do. There are many examples all the way to the largest. There you go, what the country is going through is nothing but riya.
Riya is not good, it is a sign of hypocrisy3. You need to do everything for Allah. Do not do it for show. They jump and flip a hundred flips in front of people, but when they are left alone all filth is with them, the hypocrites. Stay away from the trait of hypocrisy. May we stay far Inshallah. This is a trait disliked by Allah. It is also a trait disliked by people. They call him a Pharisee, and being a Pharisee is never a good trait. Let us try to stay away from that trait.
Be the same in front of people as you are when you are alone. If your state is not good then fix your state. Just as you look good in front of people, be good and in good character when you are alone. You will look good in front of people and do all bad things when people are not around? Why is this not good? Because the most important thing is Allah Azza wa Jalla sees you. He sees your riya and hypocrisy. May Allah protects us from riya, hypocrisy, and bad morals.
Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq. Al-Fatiha.
