Living in a Palace: 4th December 2010

In this Suhbah, Maulana explains the dangers of shaitan’s incessant whisperings, and how shaitan always plants in our hearts the desire to seek, strive for and attain dunia, whereas dunia is but a fleeting pleasure. In doing so, Man has taken the advice of the cursed enemy, and abandons his eternal hereafter for this temporary worldly pleasure. So many Kings have occupied majestic palaces, yet where are all these Kings today? Death is our common lot, and we will leave everything in death. Continue reading

The Art of War – Know your Enemy: 17th October 2010

The aim of every Prophet was to destroy evil. We must have the same intention too, to destroy shaitan and his diabolical representatives. But shaitan has cunningly turned Man against each other, so that they are no longer fighting him. By getting Man to forget this main aim, shaitan ensures that each man lives with bitterness and hatred to his fellow man. Maulana is calling all Muslims, Christians and Jews to return to their respective Holy Books, and to return to the original aim of our lives in dunia. Don’t fight each other – that teaching is from shaitan. Instead, fight shaitan – that teaching is from your Lord! We are to always remember that shaitan is indeed, a cruel and despicable adversary. Man has taken shaitan as a friend, whereas shaitan has always regarded Man as his enemy. Continue reading

Don’t bring pride, when you meet Allah

The dirtiest filth the shaitan possesses is pride! Mankind has inherited that terrible characteristic of iblis today (which caused his downfall) – arrogance and pride. People of our times seek to share in this characteristic of iblis, they are proud of all that they achieve and administer. We must cleanse ourselves of this sickness in our Souls. 21st century people are proud ones, Maulana says, prouder than Namrud or Fir’aun ever was! Continue reading

The Secrets behind Prophet Adam’s (as) fall from Paradise

Shaytan then whispered to them, “Do not eat the fruit – that is forbidden – but surely, you can taste a little of it on your tongues?” Sayyidina Adam (as) and Sayyidatina Hawwa (as) heeded this evil suggestion, and no sooner had they tasted the fruit on their tongues, the heavenly rains of honor that had been showering them incessantly was cut off immediately. Their robes of honor fell from them, and they were left standing naked in the Garden. Continue reading

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the greatest one of all?

Shaitan has a magic mirror, that he holds up for our ego to admire itself. Shaitan tells us to use this mirror all the time. It is a special mirror, as when the ego looks at himself in that mirror, he looks humungous, he looks so important, he is the centre of attention, he is the special, chosen one, he looks so majestic. When we look into this mirror, we feel pride about ourselves, we feel arrogant and superior, we feel high and mighty! Continue reading

Stairway to heaven

You are free to choose, says Maulana, any path that you wish to take. Choose either to satisfy the animal being in you, or to strive for eternal happiness with your spiritual being. The choice is yours. Remember, once you enter the door of eternity (in death), you will never return here again. You will bear the consequences of your choice, for eternity. That is why shaitan is teaching and cheating Mankind, that eternity does not exist. Continue reading

The Deadly Kiss Of Iblis

At the instant shaitan plants his kiss on the forehead of the condemned one, ugliness begins to seep into this person’s face, and gradually, his features change into shaitanic ones, throughout his life, until death comes. After death, worse is to follow – the facial features become even uglier and more horrifying, it acquires an added shade of darkness and a foul odour begins to be emitted from the body.
