Sohbah of Hajjah Ruqqaiyah Sultan
Dated 29 May 2020 / 5 Shawwal 1441
Small Jummah….. sohbah, Insha Allah, today. So many ladies ask, asking “oh! We are don’t have sohbah I don’t , I am not the one who make sohbah but today I, I like the stories, some stories Hajja Anna use to tell I like it so I, Insha Allah I will tell you one of them. This…..there was Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam use to go to Gazwah…..
Gazwah means War, but sometimes, it is not all the time war. They go with small army they go and come sometimes it happens some peace. Sometimes it is no war, no war, most of the time was no war, the people becoming Muslim. So one of this Gazwahs He was coming back and they come to one place and the two of the Sahabis were going to, for wudhu and the camp they moved, all the army was moved, go back to Madina. These two Sahabis was behind, may be they felt sleep or something they could not when they woke up they saw nobody is there. The camp, the army went.
And then they were looking right left, they don’t know also I think the way so, so good…..they were seeing some dust coming and then they said there is somebody coming so we can join and go to Madinah with them. And, they saw big caravan coming with so many people, they all look strangers, they don’t like from area people. And they also talk different languages, so they were…..just joining the caravan they didn’t talk so much to them. But when they were talking to somebody asking what, where are you going? They said we have, there is in the middle of this desert, there is big cave, there is priest….. he is….. monk. He is giving us once a year one lecture. We are, we are all coming from all over the places. He is giving us one lecture once a year. So we take this lecture and we go to our people, to our churches, we give this, from this lecture, we, we advise the people.
Yes, then they were together, they say we go, they don’t want to make so much, showing themselves. They went inside, they reach some place, big cave. They went inside all fit may be hundred people may be more sitting, sitting, all sitting, waiting. After a while, there is a chair in the middle of the cave. The monk came with his clothes you know, and he has chains on him, himself you know is making like a seclusion all the time and he is….. only talking once year. Then he sat on his chair and he put his head like this, and they are waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, not, not talking the, the monk not talking to them. Then you know as usual people they start bur bur bur….. talking, talking to each other…..why he is not talking, why, what happened, every time we come, we came all this way, what is this, this, this, why he is…..then he, he is getting his head up, he said I can’t talk to you but I know that there is from Ummat Muhammad from….. the nation of Muhammad there is people between you that’s why I cannot talk.
He, because you know, even they can make meditation, make seclusion, other people from other religions they can reach one level that they can, they know but the real opening is only for Muslims, not, it cannot, they cannot reach above this….. stage. That’s why, because he is always in seclusion, in meditation, he knows that there is some people, there is, in this, you know so crowd he said there is Ummat Muhammad two persons, people. Then, they were looking around you know and this two Sahabis they didn’t open their mouth, they just sitting there. And they say who are they, who are they? He said I can let them get up. He said for the sake of Allah Azza wa Jalla and Muhammad get up. He was asking them, then they get up too.
Then they, people were, start jump on them, to take them out. He said no, wait, I want to, I have some exam, I want to exam them, some questions that I, I always look in Bible and Tohrat and in the Holy books and I cannot find answer because there is, Allah Azza wa Jal say there is everything in Paradise, there is in, on the earth. You find everything on Paradise it is same in earth, there is same of it in the earth, on earth. Then, they were saying….sitting, come, what is your name? you are sahabi of Companion ? Are you very close? They said, we are not very close but we always you know, with Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam, we attend, we are not so close but from Sahabis. Then he said I want to ask you, may be you know, about it. This what I want…..first of all, In Heavens, In Paradise, there is people eating, drinking, not going to toilet. You know, anything you see in the, on world you know, if you are eating, you have to go to toilet. Even Hazart Adam, He ate, He came to the, on earth, Allah send him to go to toilet. Its true….. Mawlana use to tell the earth is a toilet Astaghfirullah al Azim.
Then, I looked everywhere, nothing…..if you eat you have to go to toilet do you know where is it? They were asking madad from Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam. This, they are seeing, they said, the baby in the mother womb, eating, drinking, may be not normal eating, but it’s coming to the body and it’s growing, the baby is growing but not going out to toilet nothing makes…..the baby grow in the womb but first when come they start to make toilet. This is the first one. This is like the baby in the womb it is not going to toilet. Say yes, Bismillah, this is good.
Second one is that, there is one tree in the Paradise it’s from under the Throne of Allah Azza wa Jal it grows all the branches it is the Tree of Tuba it’s written that all the branches going in all the rooms in the Heavens in the Paradise every, every place in Paradise from this branches of this tree it goes and this Tree is like whatever you wish it come, from it’s branches comes. You wish food, you wish clothes, you wish I don’t know what…..whatever you think it comes from this branches and it is everywhere in the, in the Paradise. I looked in the….. on earth you know, there is nothing, you know, nothing resembling, everything it has limit nothing is really something it is. Then, they were asking madad again from Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam. They said, Sun, the sun. Sun, when it rise, it is everywhere you cannot close it everywhere the sun, even if it is not the heat but the light of the sun is everywhere you cannot hide it you cannot it’s everywhere, Sun. Good this is good also, Bismillah.
Anyway, he asked many of them, many questions like this. Then, they said ok we have one, one question to you to ask. If you ask….. if you answer….. than you promise us you, to take to, make us go, go to our place. He said, ok ask, they asked him what is the key of the Paradise? What is the key of the Paradise? Then the monk was sitting and putting his head like this not, not answering for so long, was very quiet for so long and then he was…..the people again started to say, we are coming all this way and you know, this is they are Sahaba whatever he asked they answered him and they are not even so close Companion to the Prophet Muhammad and why we are coming all the way and this….. and now he doesn’t know one question, answer of one question. This, it was all this year we were coming and going it was not, so many talking.
Then he, the monk was getting his head up, saying I know the ques….. the answer, but I am afraid that you will kill me and kill both of them. Said no, they said, No, we came all this way to, for this. We are, we are not going to do anything. He said, the key of Paradise is “La ilaha illallah Muhammadur RasulAllah”. And then they were all giving Shahada, all the group and they took them to Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam in front of Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam they also, they all become Muslim and they went to the, some state in Madina to study Islam and to be with Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam. Some left to their countries to take the Islam back to their countries.
Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq,
Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem.
The third question was, now I remember. The monk asking, In Heavens there is one room for rivers, every river it is from under the Throne of Allah Azza wa Jal. Every river it’s different Maa, Asal, Laban, khamr….. Water, Milk, Honey, and Wine. Each they are all coming from one source but each taste different, smells different and…..it is different but all coming from one, one place. I looked in the world I could not find this. Then the Sahabi was answering that it is the human being head. They have eyes, nose, mouth and ear. Each has different liquid and each has this, they are all in one place but each of this you know from your tears, your saliva, your ear wax, or your mucus from your nose, it is different….. nature but from one place. So this is same like in the Heavens for rivers from one source different texture, different taste, different colour. And human head has this, four things.
