There’s so much tyranny. Let’s talk about here, in America. Leave the rest of the world for now. What America stood for when it entered into the world arena. Before it was practicing what? The isolationist theory, isolationist policy. It was isolating itself, America, wasn’t it? Then it decided to enter into the war. Why did they decide to enter into the war? And that World War shaped this world, shaped America especially. Why they decide to enter? To fight against what?
To fight against tyranny. Don’t look so much Americans they are tyrants, they are.. but where they were fighting at that time? Against to whom? Against to the tyrants. Who were they? Fascist. The Germans, Hitler, the Italians, few others too, in that. Don’t forget the Japanese. So that was in the 1930s/40s. Of course it started way back from there. We are a nation that is defined by our what? Resolved and the strength to fight against tyranny and to welcome those who are tyrannized. That under that statue of liberty, it is saying what? ‘Give me your huddled masses. Those that you don’t want, give them to me, I will take them and I will protect them.’ This is what America stood for. And now we are looking less than one hundred year, it’s not just America, the rest of western Europe stood for that too. But now, when we are looking at the world, you see the rise of the same thing that we are fighting against, inside of our own houses, inside of our own government mansions, inside of our own system.
The system has failed. The system has completely failed. So now let’s look at that tyranny that is coming out and this tyranny that is coming out now where it is an open season for minorities, let say, first Muslim because their first target is that, then minorities whether it’s ethnically, religiously, or certain lifestyle that they are choosing, we don’t enter into that ocean now, so those are the groups that are being tyrannized now. And when we look, that tyranny is first very strong and it is very intense in a lot of countries that we call Muslim country. But when we look here, Trump is saying, ‘yeah I’m going to go ahead with the Muslim registry. If You are a muslim you are going to register.’ Just like they did to the Jews. Correct? Holy Prophet (asws) is saying, ‘my nation,’ what did he say? He say, in the ahir Zaman, they are going to follow the Jews and the Christians step by step. Same city, half of them supporting the tyrant, the other half trying to break away but there’s so much fitna is happening within them that other tyrants also got themselves involve and they found themselves being used, same city, same people, two different sides. One is being massacred and the other one is jumping with happiness because they are getting punished.
But what is happening here in America? Those ones that the Muslims are first to say, ‘they are our enemies,’ now there is a split. Half of them is saying, ‘now we have to support Zionism and when we support that, whatever that is happening to them it is good.’ And the other half is saying, ‘we have a moral obligation because we went through that. It is within living memory. We cannot allow that to happen.’ That’s exactly what Sheykh Effendi said to me when I went to London years ago, and he says there is going to be a separation. Before Mahdi (as) comes, there is going to be a separation.
The first that is going to separate, first thing that is going to separate, is the people in Islam. The Muslims are going to separate. But inside of the Muslims, the first one who are going to separate are going to be the Sufi orders, they are going to separate. You see now, even in America, we have people who are non-believers they are starting to separate. One is saying, ‘we will support this batil, we will support this tyranny.’ They are not tricked. No one is tricked. No one is fooled. In these days, everyone’s veil they are lifted, now you make a choice. Sincerely you are going to make a choice. Either you are going to support batil or you are going to support Haqq. And sincerely there are some, many, who are supporting batil. But there are those who are supporting truth. And they don’t have to belong to any religion, belong to ethnicity but just understanding that what you are doing, this is wrong, we cannot support this.
So what do you get? They get those ones that the Muslims, especially the wahabbi kind and conspiracy kind jumping up and down to say, ‘first we must hate them, these jews we must hate them,’ those are the ones who are first saying, ‘if they make the Muslim to register, we will register as muslims.’ So many unbelievers are doing that, Christians are doing that, even those who don’t believe in anything, but they believe that this is wrong, they are going to register as Muslims. Evliya Allah they are sitting and they are watching and they are giving report. You think Allah swt is going to punish those ones, because they are standing on the side of Haqq? Don’t forget, these are the days when it is not between Islam or Christianity and Muslims and Jews. It is between Haqq and batil, and it is separating. We need to separate. We need to stand clear where we are. We cannot be sitting on the fence. But when we look at the rest of the Muslim world, this fitna and this confusion, it’s never ending. It is continuing.
Yes, the light of Islam is going to rise from the west. Have no mistake, this is why we are here. This much is enough. Wa minAllahu Taufiq. Al-Fatiha. Amin. SelamAleykum warahmatullahi wabarakatu.
