Saying the Basmala, I begin writing the third fascicle of Endless Bliss. For, it will be easy to finish the good deeds started with the Basmala. Such deeds will be useful.
I offer my infinite hamd and gratitude to the Supreme Being, Allah, Who has honoured us by creating us as human beings among His millions of various living and lifeless creatures, and Who has made us valuable by giving us the belief that Hadrat Muhammad ‘sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam’, His most beloved one, the highest of mankind, is Allah’s Prophet. To be honoured with being human means to have a human figure. For, no other creature has this beautiful figure. Every child that is normal is beautiful. ’Aql (wisdom) is the great blessing that protects this beauty against contamination later and which makes this beauty valuable. People who have attained the blessing of wisdom are honourable, valuable and happy people. Wisdom is the power distinguishing good from bad, and useful from harmful. Each person has a different amount of this power. A person who has much wisdom is called wise. Wisdom should not be confused with intellect. An intelligent person makes tools. In order to obtain his needs and lustful desires or to take vengeance, he searches for ways and means, and finds them, too. He even conceives new ones resembling them. He uses them. He does not think whether they will be useful or harmful. He cannot see beyond his nose. It is wisdom that reasons and sees these. Intellect, to an extent, exists in some animals, too. Very few people have precise, unerring wisdom. Intellect observes the activities in nature, finds out the relations, the laws among them, and establishes mathematical formulas. But it is wisdom that applies them usefully. Intellect explores bombs, laser beams, unimaginably fearful poisons, but it is wisdom that will apply them properly and usefully.
Intellect explores many things in power, motion and energy, realizes that every motion is made by some power, observes such powers and sees the order in the activities of nature, but still does not think of the existence of a source of power that makes the innumerously various motions and activities, which could not be solved by the intellect or even comprehended by wisdom. The intellect sees and observes men’s and animals’ voluntary and involuntary actions, yet still it does not reason the existence of a Supreme Owner of Power and Will that makes the regular, voluntary, infinite movements which it sees on earth, in seas and in the universe. It even denies this fact. A wise person realizes and believes in the existence of such a maker. And a person with a little wisdom surmises in the least. Upon learning the lives and words of Prophets, his surmise becomes positive knowledge and îmân.
A wise man who has learned science and studied history realizes well that right, good, usefulness and endless bliss are only in the commandments and prohibitions, that is, in the religions, declared by Allâhu ta’âlâ. Today we see various religions on the earth. Some of them have been declared by Allâhu ta’âlâ. But others have mostly been concocted by the cruel, by egoists and hypocrites in imitation of the heavenly religions. They are not religions, they are irreligious cults. As is shown by the history of religions, most of the heavenly religions have been forgotten, changed and defiled in process of time. Another fact shown clearly by the history of religions is that there is only one heavenly religion left unchanged, undefiled on the earth today. This unchanged true religion is the Islamic religion, Islam, brought from Allah by Hadrat Muhammad ‘sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam’, the final Prophet.
For thirteen hundred years, the enemies of Islam, dictators and ignorant, evil people who sold themselves to the former have striven to change the Islamic religion also and to demolish it from within and have done a lot of harm to Muslims, yet their lies and slanders have not caught on and have been forgotten. For, Allâhu ta’âlâ has promised that He would protect the Islamic religion until the end of the world. Recently, the Shî’îs, Wahhabîs, followers of Maudoodî, Qâdiyânîs, novices of Sayyid Qutb have been racing to defile the Islamic religion, but the promise given by Allâhu ta’âlâ will work, and all these heretical mischief-makers will be routed and destroyed. Allâhu ta’âlâ will protect until the end of the world those real Muslims who are called Ahl as-Sunnat wa-l-Jamâ’at or, in short, Sunnî.
To attain the honour of the true religion of Islam, it is necessary for a wise man to read and understand the books of the Ahl as-sunnat savants. After attaining this honour, it is necessary for him also to live compatibly with what he has learned. And living compatibly with Islam, in its turn, is again possible through wisdom. Following Islam in every action requires consulting wisdom. Working and struggling in the world is like traveling in a dark night. Also, struggling to attain comfort and ease in the world and endless blessings in the Hereafter, that is, obeying Islam, is like a true path that must be followed in the dark. Going along this true path at night without deviating into harmful ways requires having a light, a lantern. Man’s wisdom is like this lantern. He who has little wisdom, that is, an idiot, though he might have attained the honour of being a Muslim, will go wrong in following Islam, thus drifting into perdition. Being caught by the traps of ignorant and stupid enemies of Islam and lâmadhhabî heretical men of religion, he will destroy his life in this world and in the Hereafter.
Hamd and gratitude be to Allâhu ta’âlâ, Who has blessed me with the lot of publishing the third fascicle of Endless Bliss, which is one of the books I have prepared so that those who have been gifted with the honour of being human will be valuable and in order to provide them with attaining comfort and ease in the world and endless blessings after death! It being an important task and worship for those who have had the value of being Muslims to do favours and services to every creature, I have attempted to do this work. I send my prayers to Allâhu ta’âlâ so that He will bless my service and my readers.
May Janâb al-Haqq honour all of us with the bliss of following Muhammad Mustafâ (sall-Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam), who is the master of this world and the next and the superior and the best of mankind! For, Janâb al-Haqq loves following Him, adapting oneself to Him. A mote of following Him is superior to all the pleasures of the world and all the blessings of the âkhirat. Real superiority is being in subjection to His sunnat as-saniyya, and the honour and virtue of humanity are following His Islâm. [The word sunnat has three different meanings. Here, it means Ahkâm al-islâmiyya (the commandments and prohibitions of Islâm).] (Maktûbât Sharîf)
“The person Allahu ta’âlâ loves very much is who learns knowledge of religion and teaches others. Learn your religion through Islâmic scholars!”
Din, insanları ebedi saadete götürmek için Allahü teâlâ tarafından gösterilen yol demektir. Din ismi altında insanların uydurduğu eğri yollara din denmez, dinsizlik ve kâfirlik denir.
Dinler, Allahü teâlânın kullarına rahmetidir, ihsânıdır. Allahü teâlâ, dinleri, nefsin arzûlarını, keyflerini kırmak ve taşkınlıklarını önlemek için göndermiştir.
