Be Kind to People and Allah will be Kind to You – Part 2

In the previous discussion that we were having, the time was short so we couldn’t complete the topic. It was an important subject because this is the biggest means of salvation in the Hereafter. It is not me who is saying this – rather, it is the head of Madinah sallallahu alayhi wasallam who is saying this, so we must understand that point today. And it is more than a point – it is a reality. There are many points and Masa’il, but this is reality, this is the truth. If we do not understand this truth and reality today, then tomorrow we will not be able to achieve salvation and forgiveness. We should be grateful and do Shukr millions and millions and millions of times over - and what is it that we should be grateful for? The Sahaba did Shukr, and their Shukr was to follow whatever Nasiha the Master of Madinah sallallahu alayhi wasallam gave each day. They focused their entire lives on those words of guidance to the point that Hadhrat Umar radhiAllahu anh, who was such a great Sahabi, gave a duty to another friend of his, saying ‘If I am not present for some reason, go to the gathering and then come and tell me afterwards.’ SubhanAllah. And he said ‘And any day you can’t go, I will be there, and I will also tell you everything afterwards. We will take turns.’ This was the importance they attached.

The pious predecessors have said that the best day for a human being is the day he receives a Nasiha, when he gets sincere advice. Say SubhanAllah. That is the best day, when Allah subhana wa ta'ala, by means of one of His servants, tells a person his defects and makes his weaknesses apparent, tells him of issues that he has which could take him towards hell, or warns him about an impending danger, or the helps him deal with the Nafs when it has overpowered him and is taking him close to hell. When that person tells him the words of truth, sometimes he doesn’t want to hear them, even telling someone who explains the points to him that they are talking rubbish and that they are his enemy, saying ‘I don’t want to hear what you are saying – don’t tell me.’ Such emotions can come over a person, such that even when there is something wrong, he doesn’t want to hear his faults and problems. He says ‘There’s no need to tell me – be on your way. Worry about yourself.’

So if a person is in this sort of desperate delusion about life and is in this darkness, when Allah ta’ala takes him to somewhere where he hears a Nasihah and is able to embrace it, then his every action becomes easy after that. SubhanAllah. This is called doing Shukr to Allah, and it is very hard to find such gatherings – very hard indeed. Lengthy Bayans and Tafsirs and Duroos-ul-Qur’an that happen – they are not like this. These discussions come from the pain of the heart – whose pain? The pain of an upright, correct person who follows Deen totally. I will go beyond this in explaining this point, but at the moment I am just introducing it. I was thinking earlier about what I should discuss today, and my energy was low, and I couldn’t think of what to say, so then I remembered that we had still to complete the discussion from two days ago. So said ‘Ya Allah – I will start, and may You allow the ending to come. I am not addressing my people – they are Your patients, ya Allah, and I am also a patient. I am sick and they are sick, and we all need a solution.’

So brothers, when a Nasiha comes to us, we should immediately be grateful to Allah. And if a Nasiha comes which is hard for us to practice, and we think ‘How will I manage to do this? How can I leave that sin? How can I stop that action?’ don’t go against it and make your heart tight. Don’t make your heart stingy and miserly, for then Allah ta’ala will let you go. Think ‘This is a big message coming from Allah,’ and don’t make your heart tight and your mind small; don’t get into a mood and don’t be put off and get angry. Rather, say ‘Oh Allah, You have disclosed this secret to me, so help me now! I am dry and I am down – how can I do this? How can I be saved from this? I am down, Ya Allah. I am on the ground, so it is hard for me to do this. I now know in my heart that what I am doing is wrong, though before, I thought that I was fine. But my Salah and Zakah and fasting and Hajj and Dhikr are all going to waste, so I am crying. I can do nothing – I am useless. I have understood, but I am stuck in this trap today. How can I get out of the trap of interest? How can I escape from this dark situation which has ensnared and entrapped me? Oh Allah, I am weak!’ Say SubhanAllah. What should such a person do? Take one solution; there is only one way to receive assistance, which is to raise your hands and ask Allah. Raise your hands and go to Allah. That is the only solution. Say ‘Oh Allah, only You have the solution. I have understood and I totally want to leave this. I am wrong, but how do I take the jump, Ya Allah? I am extremely grateful to You and for the Waseelah that You created through which this message has been delivered. I am so grateful that You sent me someone who loves me more than my mother and father. Even my father can misguide me and say ‘Oh Khair, it’s okay son,’ and my mother also tells me that it is okay to do what I am doing, but this person wants to save me from Jahannam, and that is why he told me these things.’

So should we mind these words and be upset by them? We should be happy and make Dua for that person who gives us the message of truth. We should make Dua over and over again for our Hadhrat Sheikh who has saved our generation. He has not just saved me, but generations of our community. This happens if we go with the right Niyyah, and we don’t complain that our Sheikh is too strict. These things happened with me as well - there was firmness at times, for me and my family. We were told off and my family was told off – you would be amazed. When that happened, we would be afraid of two things and would pray ‘Ya Allah, may this strictness not be based on Your anger and displeasure, but rather on Your love for us.’ But what do we say? ‘Oh, he is throwing shoes at me, he is dishonouring me’ – we are negative in our thinking. What did I used to do when such words reached me from my Sheikh? I would pray ‘Ya Allah, I make one request: may his strictness not be due to his displeasure or anger with me, but solely because he wants to do my Islah, because he wants to correct me.’ Not even one percent of negative thoughts should be directed towards him – you shouldn’t even have such thoughts at all. After embracing the Nasiha, we should think ‘How can I do his Khidmah now and make him more happy?’ You should be happy and think ‘My teacher has done a great thing by rectifying me.’ I swear by Allah, such Rahmah comes, and through this, the teacher saves you from sicknesses and sins that you are trapped in which seem impossible to escape from. Say SubhanAllah.

You never leave the court of a Dervaish empty-handed; instead, you should be hopeful of Jannah when you leave their gathering. We are sinful and full of mistakes, and alhamdulillah, I am so happy that some people listen to the Nasiha and then seek forgiveness. They say ‘We heard the Nasiha and feel that we have done wrong, so please forgive us.’ There is no problem with that at all. If some point pierces your heart, then immediately say to your Sheikh ‘Please forgive me – what should I do now? You said that this was a mistake, and I feel that I have certainly made this mistake and others as well. Please tell me whether what I have done is right or wrong so that I can progress further. I am stuck and distressed.’ Don’t try to suppress it and hide your mistakes. Who are you trying to hide them from? Allah? What will happen when we have to present those deeds to Allah in His Court? Then what? Don’t wait until then. This is a beautiful topic to begin this talk with – alhamdulillah, the Majlis has taken a beautiful direction. This is from Allah – Allah ta’ala allows everything to happen, and this was a very important point.

Now I am remembering our previous discussion. What was it about? I was discussing the fact that everything has a Ruh. I will remind you of the point that everything has a Ruh. Nowadays, we hear a lot of things, so sometimes a person might go to this speech or that Bayan, or to Khatam Khawajgan here or somewhere else – all these things are happening in all four corners. Hence, I want to remind you, because I don’t know what is in your minds now, so this Faqir will repeat his words for you. Say SubhanAllah. So the conclusion of our discussion the other day was that everything has a Ruh, and that even the Deen has a Ruh without which we cannot succeed. It comes in Hadith from the Holy Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that protection for everything is found in the Deen. So everything has a Ruh, and the Ruh of our body is the Deen, and the soul of the Deen is what? Do you remember the Sabaq? MashaAllah – well done, good, the Ruh of the Deen is Akhlaq. And the Ruh of Akhlaq is Rahm, MashaAllah.

So what do we need to do now? We have come to the Masjid and the destination has come to us. All of a person’s success in the Hereafter will be based on Rahm, on mercy. So another word for Rahm is Deen. Look, now we have started – now it is slowly coming out. Ibn Abbas radhiAllahu anh stated that the gracious Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was once walking, and another Sahabi, Abdur-Rahman radhiAllahu anh was with him. See how the point is being opened up, because we have to get ready for Jannah, don’t we? So the gracious Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam stopped and said to him – his blessed lips are moving now so the Nasiha is coming; pay attention. So this man wanted protection from the heat and the ashes of Jahannam – these were his words, and what a great thing to ask for. So a big clue is being given to us here as to how to get protection not just from the fire of hell, but also from its ashes and their heat. No water or any machine from this world or universe can cool the heat of hellfire. Why? Because Allah subhana wa ta'ala has made hellfire like this.

Allah ta’ala burnt Jahannam for one thousand of the years of the Hereafter – not the years of this world. Forget about this year of Corona - according to Allah’s selection and Hikmah, one year of the Hereafter is like one hundred of our years, and Allah ta’ala burnt it for one thousand years until it became red hot, and then Allah ta’ala burnt it for another thousand years until it was white hot, and then Allah ta’ala burned it for another thousand years until it was burnt to blackness, such a dark and intense blackness that no example can be given to help explain how black hellfire is. This is a Hadith in Tirmidhi, my friends, and it is how to attain protection from this fire that Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam is telling us. He is telling us how to get protection from the heat of that fire; he is giving an action that will ensure protection from that hellfire – but that fire is very close to us today. When we lie, we go into that fire, when we backbite, we go into that fire, when we have envy and jealousy, we go into that fire, when we take someone’s money, we go into that fire, when we think malicious thoughts about someone, we go into that fire, if we dishonour our mother, we have jumped into the fire, never mind gone into it. Whoever disrespects his mother or father – or his brothers and sisters and family members or his Sheikh or his elders – has gone into that fire.

Day and night we do these things, so how close are we? We are immersed, drowned, but Allah’s Rahmah is raining down and these words are being distributed, alhamdulillah. We are getting the Amal now from which a person can be saved from hellfire. Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam is not giving us an involved point here – no lengthy Ibadah is prescribed, no prostration or Salah all night long. He is giving something brief and concise, just as when Allah gave fifty daily Salahs and Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam shortened them and reduced the number to just five. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam spoke with Allah, Allah at’ala said ‘I will not give you hardship – I will reduce the amount but not the Barakaat, so pray five times and I will give you the Thawab of fifty!’ Say SubhanAllah. This is Rabb-ul-Alameen, and these are the words of His Rasool sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

Allah ta’ala gave us a shortcut Ibadah – it is not hard to practice the Deen, but the Nafs and our desires make it seem hard. The human being doesn’t realise that it is his Nafs that makes it hard for him. Praying Salah is natural and easy; fasting is also natural. Are you not sat here enjoying the fast? Are you not rejoicing in the hunger? Rather, when Ramadhan goes, we find it a pain that we have to keep eating – we feel like it’s a nonsense to keep stopping to eat – and the stomach gets upset and difficulties come and passions and lusts increase; and the expense increases also. Yes? Our plates are full in our hands. So brothers, Allah subhana wa ta'ala has given us a natural Deen, a Fitrah Deen. Allah says ‘Wake up for Tahajjud’ – so why don’t we wake up for Tahajjud? Because your Nafs tells you not to wake up. For a Mu’min, it is natural for him to wake up and do Sajdah at the time of Tahajjud. If you wake up, slowly and gradually, you will get used to it and your Nafs will go down.

Whenever any order comes from Allah, I swear by Allah that if you try, then it becomes easy to do it in your life. It becomes easy because it is natural, Fitrah. The Deen is a natural way of life. If Allah says ‘Don’t lie’ and you practice not lying, then you will get so much enjoyment that you would never think of lying. You will take the biggest losses in worldly terms rather than tell a lie. When you stop doing the actions that Allah ta’ala tells you not to do, then you will enjoy it because it is natural for you not to do those things. How much enjoyment there is in drinking milk - and why? Because it is natural and Allah ta’ala has created it for you naturally. You consume honey and that is a fantastic food, so fantastic and enjoyable, but what is it? It is the excretion of a bee it comes out of its mouth! Imagine! Allahu Akbar – Allah ta’ala has said that this is Shifa; it is a cure. SubhanAllah.

So Allah defines what is natural, and He has created those things and has told us to do them - but we don’t feel like doing them so we stop doing them. If this happens, say ‘You are talking rubbish – you are totally wrong. What Allah ta’ala has told me to do is natural.’ SubhanAllah. Wake up and pray Tahajjud - do this action; wake up and go to Salah – this is natural. If Allah ta’ala is saying that we should go to the Masjid, then it is definitely natural for a human being to do so. There are big benefits from going to the Masjid. If you go on a journey and travel and work hard to get to a different place, your body feels refreshed, and you will get a unique and Ajeeb experience in the Masjid that it is impossible to get by praying at home. Everything that Allah ta’ala has ordained for us is natural; whatever Allah ta’ala has given to our bodies is natural. Say SubhanAllah.

So Allah’s Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam said ‘If you want protection from that hell and the intensity of the heat of its fire, there is a way.’ Hadhrat Ibn Abbas radhiAllahu anh is narrating this Sahih Hadith – so what should we do? Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam said ‘Do one action: create Rahm, create mercy in your heart.’ SubhanAllah. ‘Create Rahm in the heart’ – Allahu Akbar. Rahm must come into the heart, compassion for someone who is poor or upset or distressed. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught a beautiful Dua. He would pray for three things in one Dua, saying ‘Oh Allah save me from wrong, and give me goodness, and give me love for poor people.’ I was amazed when I looked at this – the three parts don’t seem to match. For a while, I wondered where this could have come from – may I give my all for Rahmatulil-Alameen. So the first two parts are for ourselves - ‘Oh Allah, save me from sins,’ or in other words ‘Oh Allah, save me from Jahannam,’ and then ‘Oh Allah, give me good deeds so that I can attain Jannah,’ and then suddenly ‘Oh Allah, give me love for poor people.’ Allahu Akbar – this is the third part of the Dua, and the third part of the Dua is the real path to Paradise. The first part is ‘Oh Allah, save me from sins’ because sins will me towards hellfire; and then ‘Oh Allah, give me goodness’ – and that will take me to Jannah; and the solution to attain all this? ‘Oh Allah, give me love for poor people.’ That is how I understand the Hadith. SubhanAllah.

It was he who was given the title of Rahm among all the Nabis, and it was he who fulfilled the needs of the poor. What a great quality, this great quality with which he came to fulfil the hopes of the poor people, of all the Prophets. What a great Laqab, what a title – Rahmatulil-Alameen. He came with the title of mercy amongst the Nabis, and he fulfilled the hopes and the desires of the poor. SubhanAllah. He had compassion for everybody, and he fulfilled the hopes of the poor. What a great Nabi he was – he was Rahmatulil-Alameen, a mercy to the Universe. He is Rahmah for the believer, he is Rahmah for the Yahudi, he is Rahmah for the Sikh. In his life, no matter who they worshipped, Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam kept on demonstrating Rahm to everybody – and we are the followers of that Nabi. The first Sabaq, the first lesson of his obedience is ‘If you want to become mine, then learn to be merciful like me. Learn to be merciful like me!’ This is what he taught us, SubhanAllah. Rahm is such a great lesson, Allahu Akbar! Rahm is a great lesson and a great Ibadah – it is a great worship, being merciful.

There are two parts to our life in this world. One is our desire, and we ask Allah to fulfill these in our Duas, don't we? So Allah ta’ala says ‘My select servants are Mustajib ad-Da’waat.’ Say SubhanAllah. The select servants of Allah, the Walis of Allah, are such people that when they make Dua, it is immediately accepted - Mustajib ad-Da’waat. My Hadhrat Sahib was also amongst those people, SubhanaAllah. His Duas were always accepted, and I was shocked and amazed that this fact was shown so clearly. Where science failed, his Duas succeeded. I used to say ‘Okay fine - let's ask there because he is Mustajib ad-Da’waah.’ Allah ta’ala gave this strength to His servant, saying ‘I have seated such a man in the world that if he makes Dua to Me and asks Me, I will accept that Dua.’ What do we call such a person? Mustajib ad-Da’waat. Seek such a person – but it is very hard to find someone like that - and yet it's very easy to find someone like that as well! How is it easy to find, and how is it hard? It is hard because Nafs doesn’t accept that there can be a person like that, and it is easy because the sign of such a person is that he is a follower of the Sunnah. He is obedient to the Sunnah and has no love for anything else. He loves the Imamah of Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, he loves the beard of Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, he loves the Libaas of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam - he loves every action of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Every step he takes is one the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam took. Allah says that the sign of such a person is that he is an Ashiq, a lover of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam – that is the sign of the Mustajib ad-Da’waat. Say SubhanAllah.

These are good points that are coming today, MashaAllah due to the Barakah of this gathering, MashaAllah. So what did Allah’s Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam say? Ibn Umar radhiAllahu anh narrates this beautiful Hadith where Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam said ‘Do you want to be a person whose prayers Allah guarantees that He will answer?’ Allah is saying ‘I accept whatever he asks, and if he puts the requests of other people, I accept those Duas as well.’ SubhanAllah. But what do we do? A person who gets to that status is successful - but we don’t like a person who is like that! Nowadays, we don't like people like that, those who have this quality in this day and age and in this generation. We don't like that person. We like those people who give us other things, things like those you see around you today.

So what a great factor this is. Say we have some difficulty, like a bad headache, we can turn to the person whose Duas are accepted. If I have a stomachache, I go to that doctor and ask him to put his hands up, saying ‘I have a pain inside and I want to eliminate it’ - then straightaway that stomachache goes away! Say SubhanAllah. What a great Dua this is, isn’t it? What a great Dua. If you have a pain in your eyes and you don’t want to go to the optician, you say ‘Let’s go to Mustajib ad-Da’waat and ask Hadhrat to raise his hands for us.’ I remember one person by the name of Ishaq who had a very high fever once. He was called Khalifa Ishaq, an unusual person who was Jahil and had a weak eye, but also a normal person in many ways. We were there on one side and he would lie down when pain came to him and would toss and turn again and again, moving from side to side. He was a simple person - you know, people from the village who have a pain somewhere, people who were like the Nomads at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. I saw him once, sat with Adab – there was a lot of Adab in Hadhrat’s gathering – and after a while he got up and he came up with a small glass of water, and in his dialect he said ‘Hadhrat, just blow into this water. I've got a very high fever at the moment - I'm sick.’ He could have gone to the doctor, but he knew that Hadhrat was Mustajib ad-Da’waat, so he thought he would get success in the Khanqah before going to the doctor.

Hadhrat Sahib didn’t reject him - and if Hadhrat did not reject a person’s request, then he could consider that he had been successful. Hadhrat Sahib could have refused as well, in which case he would not say anything but would just remain silent. His style of rejection was never to say ‘No’ to people with his tongue. SubhanAllah – he didn’t do that. Rather, his style was just that he wouldn’t give an answer – he would stay silent. If a person asked something twice or three times and Hadhrat Sahib stayed silent, then the message was ‘Go - I'm not doing this.’ This was his style, and we'd all understand. But if the action was to be done, at the first request, Hadhrat Sahib would accept immediately. So he said ‘Hadhrat, blow into this water - I've got a very high fever. I am sick and I can’t bear the pain.’ So Hadhrat Sahib blew into the water. He went to the side, drank the water and after a while he came and sat down with ease. SubhanAllah. This is Mustajib ad-Da’waat.

So what did Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam say? What did Allah’s Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam say? A second factor which is a big difficulty for us in this world is upset, distress and sadness. Difficulties don't leave us in our life. Do difficulties leave us? No. You don't know how many people here have difficulties, whether with their wife, their children, this problem, that problem behind, in front, on the left, to the right - sickness and difficulties don't leave us today. What a guarantee that Allah’s Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam is giving in this regard. Do you have Yaqeen in this? This guarantee is coming from one place – from the Master of Madinah. All other guarantees are a waste – nonsense and rubbish. They are all a fraud. Remember, there is only one guarantee that's accepted, and where does that come from? From Madinat-ul-Munawwarah. So brothers, turn all your directions to that one direction of Madinah – how? Ittiba ar-Rasool sallallahu alayhi wasallam - imitate the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Obey his Sunnah, because as soon as you start implementing his Sunnah, a cool wind will come from Madinah - say SubhanAllah. It will arrive.

Have you heard my Naat, the one that was released today - or not yet? How did I arrive, how? I'm amazed myself, thinking ‘How did I get there?’ Yes, I was sat nicely my room, so how did I arrive in Madinah? Say SubhanAllah. I was seeing the Green Dome sometimes, the Raudha Mubarak sometimes, feeling this wind and that breeze – how did I get there? I gave the answer at the end, didn’t I? I had no means to arrive there, no method, no mode, no medium - nothing can deliver you to Madinah except one action: Ishq-e-Rasool sallallahu alayhi wasallam, love of the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Do you understand my Naat now, or not? Those Naats are not wasteful Naats. I went home in the morning after Ishraq and opened the Qur’an – this was after Ishraq when we left in the morning - and according to my habit, I opened the Qu’ran to read it, and an Ajeeb, unique emotion overtook me. I said to myself ‘What's happening here? Something else is happening,’ so I closed the Qur’an and took the pen and paper – actually it was not even a pen, I used my phone today, not pen and paper. SubhanAllah. I said to myself ‘The phone is very useful, so let’s use that. Forget the pen and paper, today I'll use the phone.’ There's a voice message button where you can record – our champion Umar who is sat here knows all about this. So I pressed the record button and I don't know how it works, but I started recording and SubhanAllah, after ten minutes my consciousness returned, and I read Qur’an and prayed Salah – alhamdulillah, I was grateful to Allah. Allah ta’ala enabled me to go on that journey to Madinah.

So what does this mean? It means that guarantees are fulfilled from Madinah - no other place will give that guarantee. If you want to attain that guarantee, then become the Ghulam, the servant, the Ashiq of the Prophet. Don't fear to do Amal on the Sunnah or worry ‘What will the world say? What will he say?’ No, no, don't be afraid when you change your face. If you make your face like his, then Allah says ‘Whoever makes his face imitate that of My Mehboob, then I will make him My Mehboob. {يُحۡبِبۡكُمُ ٱللَّهُ } - I will forgive his sins and I will make him Mine.’ This applies also to that woman who changes her face and improves her appearance, her body, her style and her clothes, and makes them just like the style of Hadhrat Aisha Siddiqua radhiAllahu anha, SubhanAllah; and also to that man who changes his style and his ways so that he has the style of Hadhrat Abu Bakr As-Siddique radhiAllahu anh, or the style of Hadhrat Umar radhiAllahu anh, or that of Zubayr or Talha radhiAllahu anhuma – SubhanAllah; then the heavens and the earth will start to be favourable to you. These aren't just words of passion that I am uttering - I'm alert, I'm awake, I'm not in a dream. I'm awake - I'm speaking to you.

Regarding what Allah’s Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam said in that Hadith, when I mention a Hadith, lots of points come out, SubhanAllah. How Allah tala distributes the meaning of the Hadith. Hadith and Qur’an are oceans – they are like seas and oceans. One man speaks for five minutes about this Hadith today, and then the next person will come and say something else, and a third person will come and bring out a third thing; and if, by chance, a friend of Allah comes, then he will lay down the ocean in front of you. One person will give you one glass of water to quench your thirst, but the Wali of Allah will give you the ocean with which to quench your thirst; he'll give you the ocean! Say SubhanAllah. Does this happen or not? Tell me. Sit down next to a Wali of Allah and experience this. In one go, he'll give you an ocean of knowledge, of Ma’arifah, of Irfan, of Allah’s Qurb.

So what does Allah’s Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam give the guarantee about? Do you remember what I'm telling you? What are the two points through which you will become Mustajib ad-Da’waat? Say SubhanAllah. In other words, this guarantees that your Dua will be accepted and guarantees that your difficulties will end – there are two points that are mentioned. Ibn Umar radhiAllahu anh narrates that Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam said ‘Do you want this?’ They said ‘Yes.’ Then Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam said ‘Then do one action - what? Have Rahm on the people of the earth!’ SubhanAllah. Have Rahm on your children and have mercy on your wife. We do lots of Dhulm nowadays - we oppress our wives a lot. Have Rahm on your wife and have Rahm on all people on earth, on those who have no one to look out for them; have Rahm on them all today.

Look at this point. Why? Why did I mention wives? Listen clearly to what I'm saying - I'm not making a personal attack on anyone. I am sat on the Musalla, on the prayer mat of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. If these points apply to you, that doesn’t mean that I am attacking you - forgive me if it seems personal. Don't think ‘Hadhrat Sahib is saying this to me’ – I am not even thinking about any individual person; you're not even in my mind. I'm just speaking in enjoyment at the moment, because this is Allah giving a cure to you and to me. SubhanAllah - maybe I am also a sinner and a criminal in respect of this point that I'm making. Maybe I'm also like this. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said that the worst pain and Dhulm is when a person does Dhulm to his wife; that's the worst. Why? Because she is such a gift that Allah has given to you. Women have got a bit of freedom in this environment, but a woman who has been given to you is fully in your control. Her mother is not with her, her father is not with her, her sisters are not with her, her Cha-cha is not with her – Shari’ah-wise, you are completely her Hakim, her ruler, her protector, and shaytan makes you so quick to get angry with your wife – is this not the case? You are not as quick to get angry with anyone else. If someone else contradicts you outside the home, you will put up with it, but in the home, if your wife says the same thing to you, then a storm will brew up – a storm. Say SubhanAllah. Yes?

Is what I'm saying pinching you? I'm not saying this to you or anyone in particular. I'm not saying this about any individual - it's not the case. Raise your hands if you've understood that I'm not saying it to anyone in particular. Raise your hands if you don't think I'm making a personal attack on anyone. Do you accept this from your heart? Is that a promise? Yes - I'm not criticising anyone; this is a fact. So where should this practice of Rahm start first? With your wives! The wives will be thinking that their Duas have been answered today – success has come, success! Where should a person who wants to be well in their heart start practicing? Where? In the home - and who should he start with? With his wife - with his wife.

Shaytan makes you hot with anger with your wife, so when you feel that intensity, immediately cool yourself down. I'll tell you what the Tariqah is and how to do that. Immediately cool yourself down. Immediately. Remember these words because there's a cure here - the cure for this issue is coming - the solution will come. So Allah’s Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam has given us the cure for this. You’ll become Mustajib ad-Da’waat and your Duas will be accepted and 100% guaranteed. Allah will start to accept your Duas if you have mercy in your heart, and distress will never stay with you. It will be detached from you. That's why these things happen - because we have not taken hold of the real Deen.

We have not taken hold of the real Deen, brothers. If we take hold and grab onto the real Deen, alhamdulillah, our condition and our situation will immediately transform. We do Dhulm over here, and then make Duas over there; on one hand, we are committing excesses and oppressing people, and on the other, we are asking from Allah and complaining to Allah. And then on top of that, we are seeking assistance to continue doing wrong! Who are you trying to help? There's only One Allah who will assist us, and He is sat at the top - right at the top. But how will we arrive there if we are immersed in wrong and our actions are wrong? Whenever you ask Allah for help, my brothers, when you want to seek and make a request to Allah, then first look at yourself; look at your heart and think ‘How much Rahm is in my heart?’ Allah will never give to he who has no mercy. Listen to this Hadith: Hadhrat Ali radhiAllahu anh narrates this Hadith - different Hadiths are coming to my mind so I'm sharing them with you, SubhanAllah. In this Ajeeb and unique Hadith, Allah’s Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam announced that no one would go into Paradise – and the Companions all became upset and afraid. He said ‘No one will go into Paradise except for one type of person; only one individual will go into Jannah.’ If Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam said this, then Paradise is closed for everybody else. Only one individual will go into Paradise – the one who has mercy in his heart, a merciful person. Do you understand now? That's it.

So the essence of the Deen is in what? Say it loudly! Rahm, mercy. I’m not saying these things just for the sake of it. If you have Rahm, then you will get success, and if you don’t have Rahm, then you can’t succeed. If you have Rahm, then your Ibadah will succeed, if you have Rahm, then your fast will succeed, if you have Rahm, then your Ramadhan will succeed. First and foremost, you need what? Rahm – mercy, kindness. Now let's see about me and you. How much Rahm do we have? Let's start from home. This starts from home, with the family; open up the family situation - what's happening in my family, at home, inside my house? What's happening? Me, brother, sister, children, wife - what Dhulm we are doing with our wives! You’re here and I'm there, SubhanAllah.

When I used to go to Saudi Arabia, a man used to come to me. I don't know how many years ago this was, but the biggest Dhulm we do is with our wife - and then we blame others. So I said ‘Do you visit your wife every year in Pakistan?’ He said ‘Well, should I go to my wife and sit next to her?’ Allahu Akbar. I said ‘Next to who? Who are you talking about?’ He said, ‘My wife – you asked about my wife.’ I said, ‘Yes, I'm talking about your wife and children. Don’t you go to meet them ever?’ He said, ‘It's been five years since I last went!’ What a big oppression and injustice! He said, ‘What? I'm earning here - I have come to earn money, to earn food, to earn for our upkeep.’ Do you understand what I'm saying? This is the answer he gave.

So Allah wants Rahm, kindness and mercy. Okay we’ve made a mistake - I made a mistake, you made a mistake; okay no problem. No problem, no big deal - the solution is there. Allah says ‘Ask for forgiveness from that woman! Ask her for forgiveness - end of story.’ When you start to try to make up for the Dhulm, for the oppression you have committed, start with your wife. Say to her ‘I oppressed you - please forgive me, and then you will go into Jannah and I will also go into Jannah Forgive me my wife. Today, I've heard the Mas’ala; Hadhrat Sahib has explained this point to me, and what he is saying is coming from Allah. It is coming from Allah. First and foremost, give a box of sweets to Hadhrat because he has made us successful – through him, we have attained success. Yes? Through this Rahm, you will go into Paradise immediately.

So the reality is this, that first and foremost, we need to look towards our home, to our family, and spread Rahm to our children and to their children, to our sons or daughters in the home, so that there should be no Dhulm, no oppression. We should give them their inheritance, their rights, their money, their expenses, and treat them with kindness. And don't compete and compare and say ‘Other people are like this. I'm like this and other people do this’ – no. Don’t say ‘My husband hit me once, so I hit back’ – no. If your husband does this, then that's his error. Yes? You shouldn’t copy other people and bring that into your family. You can't travel through life together if you start taking revenge on each other. Have Rahm – mercy. Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam said ‘Nobody will go into Paradise except he who has Rahm - who has mercy and kindness.’

There is another Hadith about this concerning Hadhrat Hassan radhiAllahu anh - SubhanAllah. When the grandfather speaks like this sallallahu alayhi wasallam, then what will the grandson say? He said ‘My grandfather said this to me’ - the Hadith is running here, Hadith. What did he say? He said, ‘My beloved grandfather sallallahu alayhi wasallam said that Salah won't take you into Jannah, nor will lots of fasts take you into Jannah, nor will abundant Ibadah take you into Jannah – only one action will take you into Jannah, into Paradise, and that will be the pain in your heart that you have for others.’ What is that? It is Rahm and pain for others, it is regard for others. Allahu Akbar - pain for others and regard for others.

There is another Hadith that you always hear which I feel like sharing with you again because it has a strong link with this topic. Abu Huyrayrah radhiAllahu anh narrated this, although there are different Riwayahs for this account. I'll tell you this Hadith in the way that I've read it, which is a Sahih narration - I have read this Hadith in two places. Abu Hurayrah radhiAllahu anh narrated that the Holy Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was asked ‘Oh Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, should we be merciful to animals?’ Say SubhanAllah. ‘Should we be merciful to animals as well?’ Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam replied, ‘Yes, be merciful and kind to animals as well.’ And then Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam explained a story - say SubhanAllah – of an event that occurred in the previous generations, when there was a person who was travelling. This happened to an earlier Ummah in the days of old.

This man was travelling on a journey, and he was extremely thirsty, so he was looking for a well. Now obviously, this was in the desert in a very hot climate. When he got to the well, he immediately he went down, and he drank the water. And when he came up from the water, he became conscious of a dog who was shaking with thirst and licking the water in the mud next to the well. He felt pity when he saw what the dog was doing, so immediately he jumped back down into the well and took his socks off, filled them with the water and came up, and gave the water to the dog with love and affection. The dog was Najas and impure because he was a dog, a stray dog, a dumb animal, but in that man’s heart there was Rahm, mercy – SubhanAllah. And when Rahm is in the heart, he doesn’t think ‘Oh, this is just a dirty dog’ or ‘This is a disbeliever and a Dhalim, an oppressor who did this or that to me.’ He doesn’t think ‘This person was against me - he was an oppressor and he swore at me and he doesn't follow Deen’- no. The person who has a merciful heart, SubhanAllah, he is an Ashiq of Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam - he has listened to what Allah’s Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam said. He said ‘People, listen to this event!’ This man took his socks off, filled them with water gave the water to the dog. What happened? At that time, Allah announced ‘Whatever this man is or was, I have forgiven him!’ Immediately, this announcement was made. Why? He didn’t give water to a WaliAllah, or to a Mu’min who prays Tahajjud – he gave water to an impure, Najas dog, which, if it had died, would have become dust and would not have gone to Paradise or hell - no Hisab, no Kitab - but that man in whom Rahm exists distributes it to the whole of creation, SubhanAllah.

This is a demand of our Deen, so how is it that we now wander around without this? We grab people, we hit people – SubhanAllah. Where is the permission for us to hit people or beat people or do Dhulm? Allahu Akbar – it seems as if there is no one who does justice. Tell me. He is a Mu’min and he oppresses people? The Mu’min, the true believer, cannot accept oppression against other people. How can he accept oppression committed on other people? There is no way - he doesn't differentiate. What did Allah do? When this event was explained, the noble Sahaba were amazed. They said ‘If this is the case for animals, then what about for human beings? How should we treat them?’ So Hadhrat Hassan radhiAllahu anh stated that Allah’s Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam said ‘Nothing - not fasts, not Hajj, not Zakah, not worship – none of these things will be useful. Rather, the more kindness and generosity and mercy that you have done in your life, it is those actions of generosity and Rahm that you had in your heart which will take you into Paradise.’

So what did Ibn Abbas radhiAllahu anh say? Another Hadith has come into my mind -SubhanAllah. SubhanAllah – this is a beautiful Hadith. SubhanAllah - if you take away the problems of people, Allah will take your problems away. If you take the difficulties away from people, Allah will take your difficulties away. If you forgive people, then Allah in the heavens will forgive you. If you take people's sadness away, Allah will take your sadness away. If today, you accept people's excuses - you know, when people put forward excuses to you - if you overlook those faults and accept those excuses, then when no one is there to listen to you, Your Rob will accept you on that day. ‘Oh, you who are on the earth, if you do right when you are on the earth, when you come to the heavens, Allah in the heavens will have mercy on you!’ What a great preparation Allah has given to the human being - what a great preparation. We have to earn Rahmah from Allah. We pray ‘Allahumma-Rhamni - have mercy on me, oh Allah!’ You have mercy first, and after that Allah, will forgive you. ‘Irhamni, Irhamni – have mercy, have mercy on me!’ Allah subhana wa ta'ala has beautiful effects and qualities. ‘Allahumma-Rhamni, Allahumma-Rhamni - ‘Oh Allah, have mercy on me, because without Your Maghfirah, there is no Maghfirullah, oh Allah!’ Tell me.

Rahm must come first - Rahm comes. Allahu Akbar. We ask Allah for forgiveness, and when we ask, where do we go? We go to Hajj and say ‘Allah forgive me.’ We go to Arafat and say ‘Allah forgive me.’ This is the case, isn't it? We go to the Well of Zamzam and say ‘Allah forgive me.’ We pray Salah and say ‘Allah forgive me.’ We break the fast and say ‘Allah forgive me.’ In all our Duas, we say ‘Allah forgive me.’ But before that, Allah says ‘There will be no forgiveness until you first demonstrate Rahm. Demonstrate your Rahm, your mercy, otherwise I will not listen to you in the Ka’abah, and I will not listen to you in Salah, and I will not listen to you in the Masjid - I will not listen to you anywhere. First and foremost, demonstrate this quality you are requesting when you say ‘Be merciful, be merciful.’’ There is a lot of detail in this subject, and I have presented this and discussed it with you because we are all criminals in this respect.

We are criminals. Why? Because after Ramadhan, we have not attained Taqwa. Say Subhana Allah. Taqwa doesn't come from Salah, it doesn't come from Qur’an, and it doesn't come from Ibadah; Taqwa will come when Rahm, when mercy, is generated inside us. Say SubhanAllah. Until today, has anyone practiced Rahm, mercy? Speak honestly. Oh, fasting people, have you practice Rahmah? Don't take what I'm saying badly. Has anyone thought ‘Today I will practice Rahm’? But I tell you today that even right now, you will be people of Rahm, right now, people of kindness, because Ramadhan has come to give us the cure and the solution. Practice from today, and I swear by Allah, you will become merciful people. I swear by Allah. At the beginning of Ramadhan, Allah instilled these principles that I am discussing into my heart. Today is the 22nd fast, and we are still on this topic that Ramadhan has come to give us. This is what Ramadhan has come to give to us, so you have to learn this. We've been discussing this main topic for many days. This is Masjid Taqwa, and Allah is making us Muttaqis and giving us Taqwa. May Allah make this Masjid full – this is a great name that they have given to this Masjid, isn’t it? Masjid Taqwa – what a unique name. People can come here to become Muttaqis.

Now another point has come into my mind, which is that a person cannot be a Muttaqi without Dhikr. No other Masjid does more Dhikr than is done in this Masjid - when all the Masjids are closed for Dhikr, then we come here. When all the doors are closed, we come here - we don’t have to go here and there and everywhere, Allah says ‘Come here - head back to Masjid Taqwa in the end, ultimately.’ Yes? If we ask ‘Can we pray Fajr here?’ they say ‘Yes, come - why didn't you come before?’ SubhanAllah. ‘Brother, we made this Masjid for you. We said before that you can take this Masjid’ – SubhanAllah. Why? What is its name? You've given it such a great name? Taqwa. So all the angels wander round saying ‘Where’s Taqwa?’ Allah says ‘Only one Jamah has Taqwa - those who do Dhikr of Allah, who remember Allah, they have Taqwa.’ Say SubhanAllah.

So has Ali Murtaza not sent you into Paradise? He has given you such mercy, the mercy of the Muttaqis, SubhanAllah. What a preparation has been made for the Dhakireen - Allah has prepared for them. Do you realise now whose Masjid this is? We realise now that this is the Masjid of the Dhakireen, the Muttaqeen. This is their Masjid, my brothers. We have come here to learn Taqwa, and that is why Allah ta’ala is enabling us to speak on this subject, and I say that Ramadhan has come to make you Muttaqis, and without being a Muttaqi, you cannot get to Jannah, and that no fasting and no Hajj and no Salah will give you success without Rahmah, without Rahm. So how can we become Muttaqis then? Allah is saying ‘You haven't done any actions, and 23 fasts have passed. What answer can you give? But I'm saving you now and I'm giving you success.’ SubhanAllah.

Listen clearly - let's come to Ramadhan now. Let’s cure our issues with Ramadhan. Oh Ramadhan, what did you bring as a solution? You came here to make us Muttaqis. Ramadhan will say ‘Did you not hear the Hadith about Ramadhan from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam? Did you hear the first point and the second point? The third point is that this month of Ramadhan is the month of having pain for others.’ This is the month of compassion for others, of feeling the pain of other people. In other words, this month has come to make you merciful in your heart. Why hasn’t anybody noticed this? People run here and there and say ‘This is the month of this and of that.’ As soon as Ramadhan comes, we start running towards Ibadah, towards worship. No one runs towards Taqwa – but the Dhakireen run towards Taqwa. What a big difference. From the first day, we have been discussing Taqwa, Taqwa. People say that he doesn't do anything else. He doesn't talk about any of the other subjects that you hear about wherever else you go – with the Dhaikreen, you will always hear the subject of Taqwa.

People say ‘He's saying other things - he doesn't talk about Ramadhan. He just says that this is the month of pain and regard for others.’ Remember - this is the central point, this is the juice. This is the juice, the essence and the summary of Ramadhan and this is how you get Taqwa. So tell me, what is the benefit if we don't have pain and sadness for others and regard for them? See how Ramadhan has come to make you into a Muttaqi. Principally, Allah ta’ala has said that this is the month of feeling pain for others. Yes? He tells us that this month has come to make you merciful in your heart. How? Here’s how - do this action: give food to people to break their fast with. SubhanAllah. What a solution our Maula has given. What should you do? Not Salah, not Hajj, not reading Qur’an or completing Qur’ans, not Sujood - no other action. Are there any words other than these? What should you do? Break the fast for other people - feed them!

Feed them, Allahu Akbar. How many people have you fed, my friends? What do we say? ‘Oh, he’s just saying we should have pain in the heart and feed people.’ Our hearts feel a pinch at these words. We don't understand this Hadith, then. Forgive me for what I'm saying - I'm not saying we don't understand, but in a strange way we don’t accept and we don't understand the actual subject, the essence. What did Allah’s Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam say we should do? Give food to break the fast. We think that means feeding the poor people, feeding the people who have nothing, feeding the beggars. No – here is the cure! A habit is being created, so instill the habit. Feed everyone, Muslims, non-Muslims, strangers - give everyone food. Allah has put a quality in this giving of food, and there is a very high stage in giving to those who are in need, yes - we give them food for they are in need. But the cure is not achieved if you stop there. The cure requires mercy in the heart, and if that has not yet come, then the cure has not happened. To acquire mercy in the heart is the cure, because if a person has mercy, then that mercy will go to everyone - to every type of person. We should have mercy with our wives, with our children, with our aunties, with our grandfather, with our uncles - with everyone. So how will we attain this if you only feed a poor person?

What is the practice that we are being given? Give food to break people’s fasts - SubhanAllah. We should understand that the Sahaba-e-Kiram said ‘We want to give to people so that they can break their fast, but we don't have the strength to feed people and give them meat and Parathas - we can't do this; we haven't got the capacity.’ Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam said ‘Why are you upset?’ Allah’s Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam had such a beautiful style that whenever an instruction was given, he would start from the lowest level. The capability of the lowest level would come first. When a Hukm came from on high, it would come in the form that every normal human being would be able to put it into practice, and then from there, they would increase and increase. The Muttaqi would not be expected to do everything all at once. Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam would always address those on the lowest level, so that not only rich and wealthy people would be able to fulfil the opportunities, but rather the Faqir who has no money, who has only got one glass of water, even he will have mercy in his heart, and he will be able to attain Jannah.

So here, SubhanAllah, he came up with a unique solution that he mentioned, which was ‘Don't be upset and don't fear - even one date or one sip of water counts as breaking the fast in the same way.’ SubhanAllah. What do you attain from this? What do you take from this? Two things are mentioned in this Hadith, and the respected scholars are present. What has been explained? That two things will be attained, SubhanAllah. All sins will be forgiven and freedom from hellfire will be attained. So there's freedom from Hellfire - can anyone say he has done such an action that guarantees this, my brothers? Can anyone put his hand up and say that his Salah has been accepted? Can anyone put his hand up and say that his recitation of the Qur’an has been accepted? No one can. Can anyone say that all the Ibadah they have done has been accepted? SubhanAllah. Can anyone guarantee this? There is no such guarantee, but Allah’s Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam is stating that by feeding someone, this is accepted, and your sins have been forgiven.

If today you have fed someone, whether Zaid or Bakar, or the rich man or the poor man, this is the cure. I will explain another point here in passing. So here it is said ‘Give one sip of water or one date’ – and what do we do? We stop here - we just stop here, we put the brakes on. We say ‘Oh, just one date and one sip of water is enough for me. I don't need to do anything else’ – but listen clearly. SubhanAllah, in another Hadith, Ibn Abbas radhiAllahu anh narrates that Allah subhana wa ta'ala has made Insan like honey. Some people have got money and wealth, but that money is not their father's money, and it is not your Cha-cha’s money, and it is not your money – rather, that money has being given to and entrusted to you. It is as if I say to you ‘Here is my car - keep it for a while and look after it.’ So Allah says ‘I have given you a favour by giving you this item temporarily. If I have given you this wealth, don't think it's your money - it's not yours.’ Don’t say ‘No, no, I earned this here and I worked in a factory and worked hard.’ Allah says ‘Nonsense and rubbish – this is not the case. It's not your money - I gave this money to you, and I gave it to you because you are good man. You're a good man and I like you, so I prepared you and gave you some wealth and some qualities. Now after that, obviously you need to control this money, which was given to you so that you can benefit the people with it.’

This is a Hadith that I am sharing with you, not a made-up story. Say SubhanAllah. Allah says ‘If I give you £3000 pounds, it's Mine; it's not yours, it's Mine, and I gave this to you and entrusted you with it so that you give the benefit to those people who are deserving of it.’ We count and count and move it from this bank account to that bank account, and hide it in that bank account - how many bank accounts we open! Close all those bank accounts and open just one bank account - and that's the account of the Hereafter. Open the account of the Akhirah, SubhanAllah - every man should have one. If you're rich and you have so much money and wealth, okay, that's fine - but it's not your money. If you open a shop, you don't have the capacity to make it succeed. If another person opens a shop, why doesn't it come to him? Who are you? If one person has got so much money, don’t question why it has not gone to someone else. This is not the differentiation. Allah says ‘It is Me who is giving - someone gets more, someone gets less.’ Allah ta’ala gives Rizq to who He wants. What a beautiful verse this is. It is not your shop that is giving the Rizq – Allah says ‘I give Rizq to whoever I want. Your shop is given to you, your business is given to you, your properties are given to you - it is Me who decides - I give to you. And then after that, do you play games with it and hide it? I gave it for your benefit and so you could benefit the people in the world.’

Now listen carefully to what I am saying about the date and the water. I'm trying to share a point with you - say SubhanAllah. I'm not saying that you must do this – understand what I’m saying and if you accept it, take it, and if you don't accept, then leave it. I'm sharing with you what I understand, SubhanAllah. Why am I explaining this to you? Because I learned this from the blessed feet of that Faqir, so now I'm sharing it with you. Yes? Somebody explained it to him, and somebody else explained it to that person, SubhanAllah. SubhanAllah – this is from Hadhrat Saharanpuri, rahmatullah alayh. My Hadhrat Sheikh said ‘When I was a student, I used to study in Saharanpur’ – this was 150 years or 200 years ago. When Hadhrat Sahib was alive, Hadhrat Saharnpuri was alive, and my Sheikh was there. And he learned Hadith from him, and I'm his student, and now you're sat in front of me - SubhanAllah. So in other words, you're not listening to me - you're listening to the lessons of Hadhrat Saharanpuri Sahib; I'm delivering the Faidh of Saharanpur to you! Oh, Allah’s Ni’mahs go beyond all bounds. Can you show me anyone today that is getting the Faidh of Hadhrat Saharanpuri? Show me, SubhanAllah - this is the third level of connection. From the second level, it came to the third level - me, my Sheikh and then Hadhrat Saharanpuri rahmatullah alayh, SubhanAllah.

What a great teacher! So you don't even accept this Faidh today if you run away from the gathering. You say I'm Jahil - that's what you say. ‘No he's illiterate – take him out of here,’ Fine, I accept - I'm illiterate. But my Sheikh was not Jahil, SubhanAllah. He wasn’t Jahil, and Hadhrat Saharanpuri wasn’t Jahil, was he? He wasn’t illiterate, SubhanAllah. Look, the point I'm explaining to you is a unique lesson and it is written in the Kitabs. Hadhrat Sahib said that there was a student there - and who was that student who used to learn alongside him? Hadhrat Sheikh-ul-Hadith – he was my Hadhrat Sahib’s colleague. They used to travel together and his father, Hadhrat Yahya was also his Ustadh. And my Sheikh. who was the class-fellow of Hadhrat Sheikh-ul-Hadith, said ‘Where did the food come from? He used to give me food; they used to give food to me because he was a friend of my father. My friend was Hadhrat Sheikh-ul-Hadith, and his father was Hadhrat Yahya, who was both a great Wali of Allah and a Sheikh-ul-Hadith.’ I'm telling you the stories of my Sheikh - say SubhanAllah – and you are his children! I am Jahil – I accept that I am Jahil - but he whose slippers I picked up was a great Sheikh. My Sheikh said ‘I used to study with Hadhrat Sheikh-ul-Hadith – he was my classmate when he was a student’ - and now the whole world knows him as Hadhrat Sheikh-ul-Hadith. ‘His father, Hadhrat Yahya was my teacher.’ SubhanAllah, Sheikh-ul-Hadith revived the Dunya in one way, and Hadhrat Ali Murtaza revied the Dunya in another way. SubhanAllah. Did my Hadhrat Sheikh not make us alive?

He said ‘When we studied, his father was my Ustadh, and we learned the subjects together. And food was not sent with me - rather, where did my food come from? The food we used to eat would come from the home of Hadhrat Saharanpuri’ - Subhan Allah. Even if dust from the house of such a human being comes into your plate, then you are so rich – you are wealthier than the people of the heavens and the earth. And he studied Bukhari and the Muwatta of Imam Malik with him – just imagine what a personality he was. Look where his food came from. This is Hadhrat Sheikh Ali Murtaza rahmatullah alayh, my teacher, and through this person who is not even capable, his Faidh is coming today to this gathering today. Where is it coming from today? It is coming today from Hadhrat Saharanpuri Sahib rahmatullah alayh. SubhanAllah - I'm not saying this to you to show off; I have not even spoken about myself. In 25 or 50 years, have I spoken about myself? Have I shown myself off? I have no desire for that and nor did my Sheikh have any such desire. This is such a great statement. This is such a great Ni’mah, and I tell you sincerely that nobody shares this great status with me. Has anybody got this? Tell me.

Where are you sitting and where are you taking this Faidh? Where? You are sitting in Dar ul-Taqwa and getting this Faidh. It is time to break the fast, so I need to conclude. InshaAllah we will continue this discussion next time.
