Question: Can a murid ask for repentance through his Sheykh?
You may ask your Lord of course, you may ask through your Prophet, you may ask through your Sheykh if it is allowed also. Wahabbis are going to go crazy, but at the same time Wahabbis go to each other and say, ‘brother, make dua for me, brother make dua for me, you make dua for me.’ If you ask your Sheykh to ask for forgiveness, isn’t that what a dua is? But you got to know who has direct line.
Allah Jallawa’la is saying, in the Quran-e-Kerim, when the Bani Israel they were looking for help, and they need help, they asked Allah to send them a Prophet. They asked Allah to send them a Prophet to help them. They could have just asked Allah. They didn’t, because they understood.
Muslims have lost this understanding, majority, lost this understanding, long time ago. Now they want have to have Global Salawat Day? Now they want to, ‘oh, we collected two billion people who are pledging to give salawats,’ now you’re saying it? Why, because of this virus? That it’s not even touching anyone yet, why you don’t have Global Salawat Day, lets say, lets make people happy, for Palestine? Or for Kashmir, or for Iraq, or for India, or for the Uyghurs? One hundred years since the fall of the Khilafat, there is a disaster every day. Why are you not asking for Global Salawats at that time? Just for this? It’s too late. And why April twenty-fourth? Because it’s Ramazan? Wahabbi. Wahabbi. Why are you not doing it on Berat? Is there like a time limit that you need to inform people before, two weeks? Why you don’t have it on Berat? Why not on Miraj? Lost. Lost priority. Idiots, making new things, new things. Astaghfirullah. We’ve pulled ourselves away from all of that a long time ago anyway, we sit and we watch, we say we’re not a part of that. Alhamdulillah, Sheykh Effendi’s murids all over the world, at least once a week there is Global Salawat Day too, everyone is reciting the Salawats at the same time, those who are watching us. It’s okay. Everyone, millions, billions, they’re dropping all the sunnats. Not only the sunnats, the farz they’re dropping. Run to carry it, you’re going to get the blessing. Astaghfirullah. Tamam? Allahu Alam. Selam Aleykum.
