Spiritual Discourse delivered by Shaykh Mawlana Nazim Adil al-Hakkani
They think that the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam – peace be upon him – is not with them. The Prophet – peace be upon him – is not away from his nation. Allah says he is with you. And the Prophet may address the Lord on behalf of you.
What are they doing in Islamic countries? People running like foolish ones through streets shouting, ‘Russia down, America down, England down’. Why you are saying this?
And why are you not humbly saying, ‘Oh Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam, Look after your nation!’. Go to the mosques and say, ‘Ya Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam, on behalf of us you can be our intercessor in the Divine Presence! Please use your power of intercession for us. Save us from the hands of these cruel people! Oh Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam, make your intercession for your nation!’. They are not saying this, but they are running through streets shouting.
It is not permitted for men and women to run through the streets and shout! No! Muslims may only go to the mosque, cry, ask the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam – peace be upon him – to intercede for them in the Divine Presence, and ask forgiveness. Not in the streets!
The Muslim world is on the wrong way now.. for this reason curse is coming on them!
