  2. Don’t stress yourself Part 3

    This is an excerpt from one of Tariq Masood’s speeches. Its translated more or less meaning. One man he lost his children. He got divorced and his wife took the children. The event left him grief stricken. He was severely depressed. Off course he longs for his children. I advised him take legal action and go to court. He said going to court is not going to help. I suggested several other alternatives. He said he already tried all of them & wasn’t successful. Then I told him let it go & put it behind you. (5) What is not within your control, to grieve over it is foolish. And get married and have another family. When you will have other children, your focus will shift. He said people will taunt me I forgot my previous children. I told him people have lot of time to waste & will continue to taunt you. Ignore them. What is not in your control what is the benefit to keep examining it! This is great lesson. What is not in your control let go of thinking over it. Throughout his life, Nuh (as) tried to guide his son but he turned out to be disbeliever. In last moment, one can imagine what love & compassion Nuh (as) had while asking his son to board his ship. “O my son, come aboard with us” (11:42) “He said, I shall take shelter on a mountain which will save me from the water.” (11:43) A Prophet has intense love for his children. Similar to how Yaqub (as) had for his son (Yusuf). What pain Nuh (as) must have experienced but his son never changed. “And the waves rose high between the two, and he was among those who were drowned.” (11:43) Nuh (as) supplicated to Allah “My Lord, indeed my son is of my family; and indeed, Your promise is true” (11:45) Allah replied “O NūH, in fact, he is not a part of your family. Indeed, he is (a man of) bad deeds. So do not ask Me something of which you have no knowledge. “(11:46) Its not that Nuh (as) fell in despair “Oh what has happened with me” or start thinking “why did this happen”. Immediately Nuh (as) prayed “My Lord, I seek refuge with You that I should ask You something of which I have no knowledge. (11:47) Its not that he(as) started wailing in pain. What is not in your control relinquish it! We take lot of stress on those things that are not within our control. https://sheikhonderun.wordpress.com/2021/05/09/dont-stress-yourself-part-3/

  9. Don’t stress yourself Part 1

    This is an excerpt from one of Tariq Masood’s speeches. Its translated more or less meaning. When I say don’t stress yourself, that doesn’t mean one will never get stressed. There is no individual in this world with whom all things are going according to how he planned. No one in this world fulfills all that they desire. This is impossible that whatever you desire it happens. Today person in position of authority then tomorrow comes where they are in jail. This happens. So not all of your desires are going to be fulfilled here. What then is the solution? Should you then fulfill everyone of your desires? That is impossible. Wouldn’t it be better if you compromise? What do you think? (#1) Firstly one should prevent themselves to fall into difficult situation. Don’t put yourself into a predicament. Having (unnecessary) friendships with opposite gender this will increase stress not decrease. This is reality. One is doing drugs, his social activities are with other drug users. Doing drugs will not decrease stress rather increase it. When he is not able to have drugs, wouldn’t this individual not get anxious! You are person with modest means but you choose to live in an affluent area. This will increase stress and make person victim of having inferior complex. Look he has a fancy car while I only possess this. Rather you should have lived in an area where everyone is driving similar car as yourself. I witness people living in an affluent area who live with anxiety. They own mansion and earning millions. Why then are they stressed? Because neighbor is making more. These stresses are not from God rather they are self inflicted. https://sheikhonderun.wordpress.com/2021/04/19/dont-stress-yourself-part-1/

  23. Don’t Despair Ibrahim Dewla

    This is an excerpt from one of Ibrahim Dewla’s speeches. Its translated more or less meaning. No one should despair from Allah. No one should complain. People who make effort for this faith should have good opinion of Allah. My Allah is doing good for me. My Allah has provided me in an excellent manner. And Allah will continue to do good for me. Allah will continue to create ease in my circumstances. Allah will continue to facilitate me. Allah will accept me. This is necessary! Its one of the etiquettes. Jabir (rad) said: Three days before he died, I heard Prophet (saw) say: None of you should die except while he is having good thoughts about Allah. (Muslim) My Allah will deal with me with good circumstances. My Allah will assist me. My Allah will make me successful. How your opinion is will dictate how Allah deals with you. It’s in hadith. The Prophet (saw) said, “Allah says: ‘I am just as My slave thinks I am, (i.e. I am able to do for him what he thinks I can do for him). (Bukhari) Allah’s grandeur is great. Allah’s rights cannot be fulfilled by anyone. (Due to which) Allah made way out for us. So based on your opinion decisions will be made. How easy it has become? To have good opinion is this really difficult? To have hope in Allah is this difficult? Because Allah’s grandeur is great and his power is immense. Allah’s rights can never be fulfilled by anyone. Allah’s favors on his creation are many. Allah’s blessings are many. This has been explained to you that do the work of this faith with having good opinion of Allah. Reason for this is that in this world circumstances come to man, undesirable circumstances, pain comes, illness come, restrictions come. So man feels anxious and constricted due to difficulties and devil makes this man hopeless. (This occurs) because man is unmindful of Allah’s greatness. What is Allah’s greatness? This is what man is distracted from. Its blessings of propagation of this faith through which Prophets explain greatness of Allah. The Provider to whom you are going, the Provider to whom you are inviting others to, Provider to whom you worship, what is His greatness! Reflect on His greatness so circumstances are alleviated. Prophets in their message explain greatness of Allah comprehensively. And with people they (Prophets) make them hopeful. Don’t be afraid. Do (good) work. Your sustainer is such & such. “then ask forgiveness of Him and turn to Him in repentance. Certainly, my Lord is Near (to all by His Knowledge), Responsive.” (11:61) https://sheikhonderun.wordpress.com/2021/04/18/dont-despair-ibrahim-dewla/
  24. Was the Holy Quran requesting to be written down?

    The Qur’an reigns supreme in Muslim hearts as the most sacred of texts: a profusion of exalted ideas to rouse the mind, noble histories to stir the soul, universal truths to awaken the conscience and precise injunctions directing humanity to its own deliverance, all distilled into the melodious essence that is the Word of Allah. Through fourteen centuries Muslims have persevered in championing the text against corruption, memorising its every word and contemplating its every phrase, so that in our own times untold millions have enthusiastially committed each letter to heart. This expansive book provides unique insights into the holy text’s immaculate preservation throughout its history, as well as exploring many of the accusations levelled against it. The reception of divine revelations, Prophet Muhammad’s role in teaching and disseminating these verses, the text’s compilation under his guidance and the setting of its final external shape shortly after his death, are meticulously and scientifically examinded alongside such topics as the origins of Arabic, its palaeography and orthography, the so-called Mushaf of Ibn Mas’ud, and the strict methodology employed in assembling textual fragments.

  25. Lover’s Prayer

    This is an excerpt from one of Tariq Masood’s speeches. Its translated more or less meaning. Questioner asks to obtain girl I made lots of prayer in latter parts of night. I didn’t have an unlawful relationship. Despite my sincere efforts I wasn’t able to obtain her. But I believe that Allah will provide me someone better. Sheikh replies this happens quite a bit. Truly difficult situation. You prayed all this time despite your efforts in the end you are not able to obtain her. In the Quran Allah says “Or shall man have what he wishes?” (53:24) This is rhetorical question. Answer to which is what man wishes doesn’t happen all the time. Truly whatever prayers you have made in night we hope Allah out of his mercy accepts them. If that individual was not meant for you, you will get someone better. Did I not say we should think positive? Firstly we should have positive opinion of Allah. The Prophet (saw) said, “Allah says: ‘I am just as My slave thinks I am, (i.e. I am able to do for him what he thinks I can do for him).” Allah forbid that you think Allah intended bad for me because of your perspective it will be bad. Rather have positive thought that whatever happened is for my best. It could be that you got married to her. Rather than being source of happiness she tortures you. Allah will provide you someone better. And it could be that the one you do get married to, she is not better and is torturing you. So one will ask has Allah truly provided me someone better? We have to believe Allah knowledge is perfect and our intellect is deficient. “it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know.”(2:216) Meaning of having faith is to believe whatever occurring in my life is nothing but good. My other advice or request in late parts of night avail opportunity to pray for forgiveness. Wouldn’t that be better? Focus on obtaining forgiveness of Allah. https://sheikhonderun.wordpress.com/2021/04/16/lovers-prayer/
  26. From my little human perspective: This is only relatively true, because the word "nothing" is just a word, and words are relative. So the part of it that is true, is as follows: Allah exists. Allah IS existence. Everything depends upon Allah's existence. Non-existence doesn't exist. And the non-existence of non-existence, means, that Allah will forever exist, why? Because there is no room in Non-existence for Allah to exist in non-existence, why? Because non-existence doesn't exist! There is nothing there, there is no place for existence to exist in non-existence. It literally doesn't exist. So does that mean that non-existence created Allah? No... They do not even exist simultaneously, why? Because NON-EXISTENCE LITERALLY DOES NOT EXIST. IT DOES NOT EXIST. But Non-existence can proof the eternal/infinite existence of Allah. And that is why we can use it as proof, to say "that nothing can help you realise that existence exists, and so if you can become aware of something, it can exist, and without your awareness it cannot exist, and SO in a sense you could relatively say with relative truth, that nothing "created" everything. But to be more precise, nothing just helped us to become aware of everything. Like two circles overlapping creates the eye of awareness in the middle. Everything and nothing. And then continue that expansion, the flower of life, and vortex of all creation. Which is about awareness and sentience. Vibrational, changing, perspective. Creation. Reflection. Consciousness. So for us humans, yes, you can say "nothing can help proof everything", but that is again a relative truth, depending on how you view that word and how you want to use that word. Because in the end, non-existence LITERALLY BY DEFINITION, DOES NOT EXIST. THERE IS NO NON-EXISTENCE. And so same can be said for nothing. There exists no nothing, by definition, nothing is not a thing. So there is no point to talk about it, EXCEPT for the fact that it PROOFS and it CAN HELP PROOF that existence exists, eternally and infinitely. And so existence will forever exist. And so you are thereby proofing the first dimension, of oneness, of Allah. Which is the primary Source of All Existence. But even further than that. IT IS EXISTENCE ITSELF. Pure existence, and it can only be found through non-existence. Why? Because non-existence doesn't exist, so if you focus your consciousness deeply enough into non-existence, you will always find Allah. There is no denying it. Like they say, All paths lead home, everyone returns to Allah. Even if you do not focus on non-existence, you will also return to Allah. Which you call Allah, I've heard some call it Brahma. but brahma is just referring to the sentient aspect of TOTAL Allah. And TOTAL Allah refers to both it's sentience AND non-sentience, and EVERYTHING that exists. OR can or will ever possible exist and does exist and has existed, etc. In all dimensions and all times, in all directions, in infinite depth and broadness, ever expanding. Eternally unknowable and knowable. And well, I have no idea what I'm talking about. Better to refer to the 99 names of Allah, than me regarding this. But if scientists worship non-existence, they do that, because non-existence proofs existence. And they love PROOF. They want something consistent. But it literally does not exist. So they are literally not worshipping anything. And so they are in a sense saying "well, if I am eternal, then hell will become paradise and paradise will become hell and together they will eventually create something greater or bigger than both together or either seperate. So they skip that part. And they just go straight to peak behind Allah, to see if Allah is an illusion or not. They wanna see if there is really something behind or before Allah. And they don't wanna become a good muslim to accomplish this. They really believe that they are allowed to see for themselves if Allah is an illusion or not. So they try to look behind the 1st dimension. To see if there exists a 0st dimension. And ofcourse it doesn't exist. But if it really really really does not exist, and logic says that it cannot even possible exist. Then This non-existence must be the source of everything. It is just a logical conjecture or conclusion they have taken. Which is a flaw, because the moment they find it, it is no longer non-existent. So it's very stupid. Indeed. Well, scientists aren't guided by Allah, so may Allah have mercy on them. Daoists say this too, but they still practice the art of balancing this duality. To find a way to reach a HIGHER FREQUENCY AWARENESS OR CONSCIOUSNESS that is more divine, like in Islam we seek to find higher faith and believe. Meaning higher consciousness. Deeper alignment or attunement to or with Allah. I don't know how you call it. Faith. Well, those who are believers anyway. Or who have experienced faith in the past atleast. And many people have, even if they have never heard about Islam. But they have very different names for it. And it is a very rare thing for humans to find faith. Infact, pessimism is way more common. Even amongst muslims it can be found, if you are a disbeliever. But if you are a believer, you will be able to find faith everywhere you look. Even in a scientists, and it will be very funny for you, and they may even be completely ashamed by it. By the guidance of Allah. And without faith, there is no ability to perceive the guidance of Allah, and no way to succesfully navigate the infinite illusions of existence. Not an easy not enjoyable thing. But who is to know that, except Allah! However, I find this assignment of sentience and non-sentience to Allah a flaw. Even tho I cannot denie that it sounds logical. According to the Quran "There is none like unto Allah." So, Can there be a nonexistence that reflects Allah's existence? NO! Allah is the eternally existing, and the fact that Allah's opposite, non-existence, literally doesn't exist, PROOFS that. But the ASPECT of Allah that can be sentient and non-sentient. Ok... That is not the TOTAL Allah that is just an aspect of Allah that happens to contain a duality and similarity. We are made out of the breath of Allah afterall, we have to have SOMETHING in common right? But we will never become the Total Allah. Atleast it's hard to believe that that is possible in this life. But everything is hard to believe. Even Allah is hard to believe. Maybe we should first believe in Allah, and then we will be guided to the correct knowledge. But if we believe in Allah to find the knowledge, then we will never find it. We have to believe in Allah, just because we believe in Allah. And because we want to believe in Allah. And we have to KNOW that our believe is because of Allah, by Allah, for Allah, through Allah, and otherwise it's not a real true faith, and it will not yield any guidance. But even if we know that, if we do not believe, we simply do not believe, and we cannot find guidance either. And those are the two aspects of non-believe. To not believe, or to believe in a petty illusion that yields nothing. And both, I know very clearly. But faith, is not easy for me. And a scientist? Forget about it. By the mercy of Allah you will enjoy helping them find faith, that they may find it. And that you may be guided to help them find it if you truely need to. Allah knows best.
  27. Question: Did the message in the Quran request to be written down? And why did they write it down?
