If you are keeping your connection with the Awliya Allah, in the middle of the fire they can come and they can pick you up, put you to safety. If you say, ‘I don’t need Awliya Allah’ then we say, go ahead defend yourself. You don’t want the friends of Allah, meaning you don’t want Allah. Because Allah is saying, ‘My friends, anything they ask I give. Anything they ask I give to them.’ On the Day of Judgement there will be a voice that calls out when everyone is terrified on the Day of Judgement, terrified. The voice will ask, ‘Is there any friend of Allah that these ones that they love that I can join him to that one. Is there anyone?’
So the love, people talking about love so much, love in religion, love of Allah, love this, loving that, if you don’t love whom Allah loves, forget about it finished. Because Allah created you for the love He has for those ones. Allah created this whole existence for the love of the Prophet (asws). Are you saying, ‘I don’t love the Prophet’? Are you saying, ‘I love only Allah.’ Allah says, ‘I reject your love.’ Of course. If you don’t love the Prophet, Allah will reject your love. Forget about love, Allah says, ‘I will not accept your thanks if you don’t thank the one who did something to you.’ Someone did something to you good and you don’t thank him, you thank Allah, Allah is saying, ‘I don’t accept it. I reject it.’ Yeah Babullah, the doorway to Allah (swt).
InshaAllah we, as ajiz as we are, at least Ya Rabbi do not separate us from our Sheykh. Although we are physically, let our spirits always to be with him and let our physical bodies also work in his way. Fateha.
