Everything people do in this century is only for show. Allah asks us to be clean but not just our bodies and our clothes. Ladies change their hairdo at the beauty shop hoping to change their selves. We must try to be clean inside as well and to obey heavenly orders. We must be and do for Allah.

Servant, Worshipper or Mistaken
Mar26 1994 English 30min
Servants must know what makes them blessed. To say “we have higher education” is ignorance. A real servant says to Allāh ﷻ, “As You like”.

The aim of the Naqshbandī Ṭarīqah is to teach the murīd to say – “I am a weak servant.” Then he becomes available to be supported by heavenly power. If the murīd does any action to accept or to follow a Shaykh he will be supported by the Shaykh, by the Grand Shaykhs, by the Prophet ﷺ, and by Allāh ﷻ. If he takes one step, they will complete the other 99.

Using the road signs he saw in America, Mawlānā warns us that the world is on the ‘Wrong Way’, on a path that leads to a ‘Dead End’.
