Ṭarīqatunā ṣ-ṣuḥbah wa l-khayru fi l-jam‘iyyah.
Our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم is saying, “Khayrukum man ṭāla ‘umruhu wa ḥasana ‘amaluhu”. What is our purpose in this world? He صلى الله عليه وسلم says, “Who has long life and spends his life by doing good deeds and follows the way of our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, he is the best among you.” A good person is not the one who earns the most money or who leads the most people. Apart from the orders of Allāh جل جلاله, there is no benefit in anything. No matter how much knowledge, education, or rank someone has, he has no value in the eyes of Allāh جل جلاله. The worthy is the one who follows Allāh’s جل جلاله orders and conducts his life on that way.
You don’t have to be imām or ‘ālim to be a good person, says our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. Any Muslim who carries out Allāh’s جل جلاله orders and avoids forbidden things all his life is the best, the best among the Ummah. Our purpose is to be accepted by Allāh جل جلاله. To be accepted by the people in this world is sometimes not acceptable in the presence of Allāh جل جلاله. Most people who are accepted by Allāh جل جلاله are not given value and care here. But the value given by Allāh جل جلاله is accepted. The rest is nothing.
Therefore, may Allāh جل جلاله give us long life. May He جل جلاله make it easy to be on the way of Allāh جل جلاله generosity for us to be on the right way. If it’s for the ego, most people will follow other ways. But Allāh جل جلاله wished goodness for us. He جل جلاله made it easy for us to keep on this way. Therefore, don’t give much value to this world. You have joined the way and follow a Shaykh, that is a big favour. Know the value of that favour. Don’t say, “I did this. I did that.” All of our egos can take us from the right way. However, if a person controls his ego, Allāh جل جلاله helps him too.
May Allāh جل جلاله not separate us from this way, in shā’a Llāh. May we be on the right way both while young and old. Some people sometimes say when they are young: “I am too young. Let me have fun now. I will come to Allāh’s جل جلاله way afterwards.” That is a wrong thing. Because near Allāh جل جلاله young pure people are among the most beloved. They receive the most blessings. Their stations become high. After doing things, certainly there are virtues for those who repent. But the young pure people are gathered together with the Prophets. A young pure person is the person who respects Allāh جل جلاله and fears the forbidden things. Therefore, they should come to this way while young as well.
May we be on this way till the end of our lives and until our last breath, in shā’a Llāh.
Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم saying, “Khayrukum man ṭāla ‘umruhu wa ḥasana ‘amaluhu.” He صلى الله عليه وسلم is saying to us what it is the best thing for believer, for whole human being of course: “Who he becoming old and his good deeds, he make good thing.” Good thing, what is good thing? To build long building, to have big money? To have to be president? To be this? No this not good thing in Divinely Presence of Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla. This is not any no any value for this. The value – you obey His order. His order, He جل جلاله is our Creator, His order good for whole human being. To do this is good for you, for believer, for non-believer, for whole creature. This is Allāh’s جل جلاله order, to be good for all of this to obey and to make what He جل جلاله is order. First to worship Him جل جلاله, to know Him جل جلاله and to be mercy for creature and to good to do good thing for people, to not harm people. This is good thing. And who he is – Allāh جل جلاله give him long life, he is the best one in Divinely Presence of Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla. This is Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and of course in Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم also he صلى الله عليه وسلم is also happy, loving this people – not to be coming old and every people they waiting to what this man doing. No. It is the best thing for us, for all of believer, to be in this order of Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and which is to be good for people. And when you are good for people first you be in this become good for you before others also.
Al-ḥamdu liLlāh we are in way of Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, way of mashāyikh and who coming to this way they must accept to not look. Some of them they saying, “We do this we do that.” No. This is, when you say this you finish your value what you done. Even you done, you do this for sake of Allāh جل جلاله not for sake and for anybody – first for Allāh جل جلاله and He جل جلاله is reward you. He جل جلاله is happy with you from young until the end of your life. People also, some people saying, “We can be good later.” No. From beginning if you be good Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla He جل جلاله like more young people who are following Him جل جلاله. They are the His lover and they are in stage like Prophets, very, very high stage they have.
So, in shā’a Llāh, we try to be whole life from childhood until end of life, our aim to accept, be acceptable people in Divinely Presence of Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla. This is our aim; not to for dunyā. Only for Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla and Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. Allāh جل جلاله help us because this also from His favour for us. We cannot do without His favour, His big favour to get us to be in good way and acceptable people. Allāh جل جلاله help us, in shā’a Llāh.
Wa min Allāhi t-tawfīq, al-Fātiḥah.
