Keep yourself in Siratul Mustaqim (Straight Path). Concentrate in Allah and His Prophet. Don’t concentrate on this dunya (mortal world). Whatever is in dunya, it’s written for you, it’s going to run to you. Even if you are running away, it’s going to come to you.
When Holy Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) is coming to last days, and Islam is becoming very rich, there was so much wealth coming, Holy Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) was living the same lifestyle. He didn’t change his lifestyle. He didn’t build luxury houses to himself. He didn’t build luxury places for his wives. He didn’t do nothing. He was giving to Sahabi e-Kiram, but he was living same style. All those strong sahabis (Companions of the Prophet), they were living just like him. The ones that came later, they were living with the luxury. But the rest, they were living like that. His wives, they said to him, ‘Ya Muhammad, in the difficult times, we were patient. Now it is not difficult, and we have the right to live just like the other ones.’ And the Prophet got so upset with them. He was so upset for them, and the ayat came saying to them, ‘say to them Ya Muhammad, if they want dunya, give share to them from this dunya and divorce them all. Leave them. Or they should stay just like you and came to ahirat (Hereafter).’
We are not for dunya. We are for ahirat. Anyone who is thinking that they are for dunya, this tarikat (Way) is not for you. You should find another place.
More difficult days are coming ahead. More difficult days coming. We have to know how to share. We have to know how to give to others. Those that they are our enemy right now, they are preparing wrong things to us, they are coming on the way and I am seeing that they are going to be among us and we have to learn how to share with them. We have difficult days waiting. The luxury is going to happen right after Isa (as) and Mahdi (as). the heavenly life is going to be built on earth then. Now, don’t make yourself too luxury because you are not going to be able to get up from the luxury that when the takbir (Glorification of God -Allahu Akbar) is going to be taken then you are going to be in trouble.
InsyaAllah ar-Rahman (by the Will of the Most Merciful Will), this is just to make us understand how difficult time we have just entered. It’s not that easy. Everything in the world is going to change. All this wrong systems are going to come down. Anyone who is tyrant, they are going to be taken away. Anyone who has tyranny in their heart, they must change. Otherwise, they cannot live in this world. Doesn’t matter if you are male or female. Doesn’t matter if you are believer or unbeliever. If you have tyranny in your heart, you cannot live with Mahdi (a.s). He is coming to bring end to the tyranny. He is coming to bring justice back to the earth. He is bringing the Shariat (Divine Laws) of Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam) and the Shariat is going to work. He is coming to open the hidden and the forgotten Sunnahs (traditions/Practises) of the Rasulullah (Messenger of Allah Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him). We must run to do things, the Sunnahs (Prophetic traditions) that we know now because what he is bringing, it’s going to be more.
So, if you believe in this, you should try to live according to that. If you don’t believe it, don’t bother yourself. Allah give you two ears, put it from one side, bring it out from the other side, but you are not going to be on the right side that time. Believe me, Dajjal (Antichrist) is also coming. Dajjal has extra-ordinary power. There is not so many strong ones thinking that they are strong are going to be able to stand in front of him. He is very clever and intelligent. He is a big scholar too. If anyone is thinking that they are scholar, he is more scholar than them. He knows Islam more than millions of scholars in this world today. So, be careful. Holy Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) gives warning to us about Dajjal, 1400 years.
Everyday, people they are coming to me asking for Mahdi. Nobody, up till now, asking me about Dajjal (Antichrist). Prophet is speaking so much about Dajjal, he is speaking very little about Mahdi (as). Everyone is asking Mahdi, no one is asking about Dajjal. Be careful. Dajjal has so many tricks and traps. Sheytan (Satan) has so many tricks and the trap, we must put ourselves together to understand by ourselves, it is impossible to escape. Sahabi e-kiram, they couldn’t escape by themselves. They hold on tightly to the Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him). The one who came after, they hold on tightly. If you don’t have nothing to hold on to, then you are in big trouble.
