Question: If the world, with the wrong and the bad things that are happening with it, and it’s Allah (swt) plan, what does that mean when it comes to accounting and Allah (swt)’s justice, that there are people who are supposed to do wrong and hurt other people? What does that mean when it comes to the justice of Allah (swt)
His justice is His business. Our justice is our business. I’m not sitting here, everything that is happening now, applauding it. Wrong things happening, it is wrong. Are we crying for it? Yes. All the evil that is happening in this world? Yes. But at the same time, you think things that are happening in the Muslim world right now, we are completely innocent from it? We cannot say that.
Allah’s justice, Allah has not inflicted His justice yet. This is man’s justice that is happening. Everyone is crying for Palestine. Do you know the history of the Palestinians? Do we know that? Do you know the betrayal that they have done to Islam, to the Khalifa? Not just one hundred years ago. Right now. That the Arab leaders themselves, Trump declaring Jerusalem as the capital. Do you think world politics is happening like us? Suddenly we are reading in our Facebook, tweet or whatever you know? ‘Oh,’ they are surprised, and they say, ‘oh, it’s just coming like that?’ They have been talking about that for years. Of course they know. Then later it comes out, Oh they have known all along. Am I shocked? No. You got to be really dumb to think that. People, everyone is like us. They are leaders. Like I said, they all eat from the same table. They all sleep in the same bed. Doesn’t matter if they are Jewish or Muslim or Arab or Turkish, they all belong to the same. This world is not ruled by all these leaders anyway. It’s ruled by a handful of people. Just one handful of people, behind closed doors. They are the ones who is controlling everything. You cannot even become a big businessman in any city, in any town, without belonging to that club. They’re not going to allow you. Businessman, not millionaire, not billionaire, not leader, not a politician. So what is happening now? This is not the justice of Allah.
People are all blaming Allah. No. They are saying all these things that is happening in this world, all this world hunger and everything. Allah has created this world it is enough, not for seven billion people, it is enough for seventy billion people. What is enough for one person, it is enough for two. What is enough for two, it is enough for three. This is how believers work. The believer doesn’t eat with four stomachs. But if you are the one who’s chasing after unbelief, and unbelief kind of lifestyle. That time, not seven billion, seven people is too many for this world because everyone says, ‘I want to rule this world. This is mine.’ Get fed up with this world, they look to this skies, like Sheykh Effendi says, they look at the moon and they say, ‘the moon is yellow like gold. I want to go to the moon and control it.’ Sheykh Effendi says crazy things like that, then later you discover it is true. It is not saying it directly too, because of course there are whole asteroids, whole stars that is made from gold, made from diamonds, that people are trying to get that. So, what does that mean for us? Stay out of it. Know that it is a big game that people are playing. Understand that whatever tyranny that is happening it is wrong. It is bad. We are not sitting here saying that everyone deserve it too. May Allah not test us. We don’t know what it feels like to lose a loved one. We don’t know what it feels like to have bombs raining down on us. We don’t know, so we should not sit and judge. We should do what? Give more Shukr and stop complaining.
This is for us. Little bit of difficulty happening, don’t complain. At least you’re going to say to yourself, ‘this is a zakat of my comfort here.’ Anyone thinks like that? No. Who is going to bring the justice of Allah? Allah (swt) is saying, only one time it’s going to happen, justice of Allah here on earth. Only one time. And the signs are showing his appearance is very soon. So now we are pulling ourselves to that camp, that he’s going to see with the eyes of Allah. Not with the eyes of politicians, America, Russia, right now. Or our Muslims or ICNA or ISNA, or this or that to look at things. Pull ourselves back. InshaAllah, we are not liking it, but it is a lot of games. They try to finish one problem, 10 problems come up. They finish ten problems, one hundred problems come up. It’s never going to become less. It’s going to get more and more. That’s why more and more they have to send distraction to the people. So the people get very distracted, by silly things. To be enjoying themselves so that they don’t look at the real problem. Astagfirullah wa atubu ilaih.
Wherever you can that is around you, where your hands can reach, to help. Be intelligent also. Eh, some people they are trying to help, I’m saying, be careful like this like this, like this, they’re trying to help some people, they were shocked. They don’t want it. They are in very bad situation, things are so difficult, but they are so proud.
