Comments Off on THE VIRTUE OF SURA AL-FATIHA

Hadrat Shaykh Muhammad Mehmet Adil 15 January 2016/5 Rabiul Akhir 1437 Post-Hadra, Akbaba Dargah

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.

May Allah (JJ) not deviate us from the right path. Thanks and glory be onto Him. This is the Sura al-Fatiha. First, it says thanks and glory to Allah. It is called the “Assab’ul Mathani” (Another name for Sura al-Fatiha meaning the praised seven verses). Seven verses for seven thanks and glorifications. It is the first sura in the Koran. People read it as a cure. It has blessings1, goodness, and of course an invitation for people to come to guidance inside.

Allah (JJ) is the Lord of all worlds. Allah says not to be alarmed as long as we are with Him. Allah is not just the owner of this little world, but of all dominions that have no boundary and limit. The mind is left helpless in understanding His dominion, calculating it, or comprehending its size.

It says to guide us, to show us the right way. Show us that beautiful way and keep its blessings everlasting upon us. It is the way which its blessings are upon those people. Those who have been granted guidance have gained the greatest benediction2. Material benedictions are also a great benedcition after knowing Allah, but it has no value if not recognizing Allah, if not on the right way.

Let us go straight, without deviating, on the way of the right people. After reading a couple of books, finishing university, or studying somewhere, some people do not see anybody higher than themselves around, they see others as lower. Let us not go on that way but on the way of our Holy Prophet (SAW), on the beautiful way shown by our Holy Prophet (SAW).

It asks Allah (JJ) to help us. It says it is the way that is not the way bad people are on, but the good way. Make us amongst those servants whom your wrath and anger are not on O our Allah. This is a concise summary of Sura al-Fatiha. Volumes and libraries are not enough to interpret it. However, no matter how short it may be, this is still enough for people.

People are alarmed. Do not be alramed! Allah (JJ) has shown us the right way. It has no effect even if the whole world is not on that way. They have not been granted that benediction, like shaitans, they have been worthy of Allah’s wrath. They can oppose Allah as much as they want, they can oppress people on this way as much as they want, slander or think badly with all kinds of trickery and traps, what they can do is only in this world, and that if they can do so.

What Allah says occurs. Allah has appointed a time for everything. These are End Times. Shaitan’s supporters and soldiers have come to the last phase, they have lost their humanity, and have become demonized. It has to be this way for it to change, for Allah (JJ) to send a savior. And that our Holy Prophet (SAW) has promised.

This world will fill with tyranny and evil, it will reach its utmost limit so that a person from our Master’s (SAW) lineage should come. His name is like our Master’s (SAW) name, his mother’s name is like our Master’s (SAW) esteemed mother’s name, and his father’s name is again like our Master’s (SAW) father’s name. We are waiting for him. This is why Muslims should be patient. Allah willing the time is near, because the whole world is against Muslims.

Those who say they are Muslim and oppress Muslims are not Muslim. If they are with the infidel3, if they like them, they will be resurrected with them. A Muslim does not oppress. A Muslim is on the way shown by our Holy Prophet (SAW). Those who say they are Muslim according to their own mind have nothing to do with Islam. Allah knows the Muslim, and Allah knows the hypocrite4. They are more munafiq and fasiq5 than Muslim. They are not Muslims on the right path.

The whole non-Muslim world is against Muslims because the End Times are here and the time is near. The things our Holy Prophet (SAW) spoke about are appearing one by one. Inshallah, when the good tiding who is Mahdi Alayhis Salam appears, the whole world will be filled with justice and beauty. Just as it is filled with tyranny, evil, and ugliness, he will do the opposite: he will bring justice, he will bring beauty, and he will bring goodness.

He will come with miracles6 too. Now, a day does not pass that someone does not come out saying he is the Mahdi. There are three to five who come out claiming to be the Mahdi everyday. However, these people do not have the attributes told by our Holy Prophet (SAW). They have none of the qualifications of Mahdi Alayhis Salam described by our Shaykh Mawlana (QS). Because Mahdi Alayhis Salam will not attempt to convince people one by one like this. When he says the Takbir7 with a miracle, all people who have faith in their heart will understand that the Mahdi has appeared and will hear it.

If they attempt to convince people one by one that they are the Mahdi, not three years, a thousand years or even a hundred thousand years are not enough to convince these people. That is why the true Mahdi has not appeared. Inshallah it is near. When he appears, Allah willing the whole world will become Muslim and not a single kafir will be left. This is Allah’s promise: when Mahdi Alayhis Salam appears, the whole world will become Muslim in the End Times.

After that, of course, Judgment Day will have neared. There are events after that, but what is truely important is Mahdi Alayhis Salam’s appearance and the end of this oppression. May Allah (JJ) bring him out as soon as possible so that he saves these people from oppression Inshallah.

From now on there really is oppression. The tyrant is backing the tyrant, and the oppressed is found guilty. We are in such a world now. The whole world is with the tyrant, the oppressed cannot make a sound, and the opprsssed has been made guilty. There, for this reason Allah Azza wa Jalla will send Mahdi Alayhis Salam and he will get everyone’s just rewards. May Allah not deviate us from the right way because this is the greatest benediction. We need to be thankful for this.

Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq.
