Question: When is Mahdi (as) going to come?
Do you think the nation is prepared to welcome Mahdi (as)? If we know right now the day, the exact day, the exact time, you are responsible for the knowledge that you know. And if we know and we say and people cannot carry it, we are going to be responsible. Correct? And when you know, you are also going to be responsible.
Meet every person that you see like it is Khizr (as) and treat every night like it is Leylatul Qadr. Everyone is looking for that Armageddon. Everyone is looking for that Qiyamat. Treat every night like it is leylatul Qadr. Treat every person you meet like he is Khizr (as). You are looking for that end of time, end of the day war but we still don’t know whether we are going to live through the night or not? We still don’t know whether we are going to live in the next few hours or not. Are we prepared? Are we preparing and are we speaking, are we reminding ourselves about death? The one who is reminding and preparing himself for death, it doesn’t matter to him now if Mahdi (as) is going to come today, tomorrow, next year or a hundred years. Because that is the bigger reality and it is a stronger reality for us.
What did we do for the sake of Allah today? What did we put in that grave today? If we are not preparing for that grave, if we are not preparing for death, definitely we are not prepared for Mahdi (as). Definitely. So be busy with that. Live simple. No need to know to too much. Some people they are posting secrets, like I say, on YouTube, on Facebook, on the internet. Breh, you think Evliyaullah needs this technology? You think they are going to give it to you? To know if it comes through the internet it is definitely mixed with batil. If not it’s just there to misdirect you and to cheat and to lie. That’s how it is. What? Which means people that who don’t have access to Facebook they don’t know when Mahdi is going to come, when they are out? or they whats app? This much is enough. Fatiha.
