O believers! Obey Allah Almighty and don’t trespass beyond His orders. There’s no doubt that Allah Almighty is with those who are righteous and with those who accompany righteous people. It’s time that everyone holds himself accountable and asks himself
The state of this world is deteriorating and we’re heading towards chaos. It’s our obligation to raise your consciousness and to inform you on what lies ahead of us. If we didn’t fulfil our obligations, we would violate our responsibilities. Therefore, those who are in charge are obliged to draw their community’s attention onto what’s important. If not, they will be held accountable. Every leader must show his community the right way and protect his people from going astray. On the other side, the community is obliged to listen to its leader’s instructions whole-heartedly. We need to listen with our hearts in order to internalise what is said. Don’t let words go in one ear and out the other.
The Seal of the Prophets (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) said at various sermons, “There will be a time when the entire world will split up into two fronts. In the End of Times, there will be a great war between East and West. All nations will be involved in this terrible war. After this war no nations will be left, and six out seven people will have died.”
I’m sorry to say that community leaders barely speak about this saying of the Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam), thus leaving their people in ignorance. What we do here is forwarding what has been transmitted through the Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) and our sheikh. Now, we’re in the End of Times. We are the edge of Armageddon. Now, it’s the time when Mahdi (alayhi salam) will appear. Don’t you see what’s shown in the news? Or do you watch the news as if it was an action film? It’s time to leave your ego’s comfort zone. It’s not always fiction what you see in TV. All the bad news with which we are confronted every day is bitter reality. Who can guarantee that what you see in TV won’t happen to you? O believers, mind your behaviour. It’s time to reflect on how to prepare oneself and how to be a good being.
The sayings of the Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) haven’t been said for nothing. They’re reminders which will brings us back onto the right track. Armageddon is about to break out. This is a stern warning, and by doing so I’m fulfilling my obligation. It’s important to make adequate provisions. What’s wrong about preparing yourself? You won’t lose anything if you listen to your sheikh’s instructions. If the war breaks out in ten years, you can be happy that it wasn’t today. But what if the war broke out today… Therefore, you should make provisions for at least three months. Instead of spending money on vacation, you should use it for making provisions and investing in canned foods. We don’t know what will happen in the future. Anything could happen anytime.
The Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) foretold that Armageddon would break out when no-one would expect it. Darkness will suddenly cover daylight. Armageddon will break out unexpectedly. You won’t notice its coming, just like you don’t notice a housebreaker. We’re proud to be believers, but as believers we’re obliged to be prepared for Armageddon every moment. A believer must be vigilant. Is a watchman supposed to sleep? Just like a soldier needs to be vigilant, we always need to be on the watch. I can’t overemphasise the importance of being vigilant. Be prepared even if there is no war. Don’t get me wrong. We don’t want the war to break out. All I’m trying to say is that we need to be prepared no matter what the situation is. Don’t be heedless.
Allah Almighty has informed us that for everything there is a time when it will appear, simply wait for it to become reality. Now, we have reached the time when Armageddon will take place. It’s time to put off the red-colored glasses. Observe what is going around in this world with the eyes of your heart. It has been foretold that Armageddon will break out in Turkey, when the People of Bani Asfar invade Turkey. You all know who the Bani Asfar are, there’s no need to go into detail at this point. You can do research later on.
Be vigilant, and make your provisions! If you ask yourself what you need to buy, imagine you were about to go on a camping trip. Even if there is no war, you will certainly find usage for your equipment. Imagine there was an earthquake or another situation that would require you to leave your normal way of life. This is a wake-up call. Instead of wasting your money on all kinds of enjoyments, you should use it for making provisions. Once you have everything ready, you can still go on vacation. This is why I’m urging you to prepare an emergency suitcase. There’s nothing wrong about having one. May Allah Almighty let us understand.
