“Why did we come to dunya? We were sent, brought down to dunya, and dunya was made to be a mirror for mankind. It is a mirror so you can see yourself in it. What is dunya? Dunya is a mirror for us. Allahu Akbar!
O Holy Shah Mardan, how nice is what you said. Dunya has been made a mirror for mankind. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar!
Go ahead O Shah Mardan, dastur. How nice he is speaking. Say – Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Say the Name of the One who created you. What happens when we say it? Sheikh Mehmed Effendi, when we say it, people find the way to recognize themselves. When we say Bismillah, Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim, those who say it find the way to their humanity. Allahu Akbar! Look, these are the words of Shah Mardan. They find a way to recognize themselves. With what? With – Bismillahir Rahmanir-Rahim.
Don’t people of today recognize their humanity? No they don’t. Are they trying to gain awareness? No they are not. People of today have become creatures who have forgotten their humanity. We have lost our humanity. If someone loses something, they search for it. They search for what they lost. If it’s valuable, they search a lot to find it. If it is not valuable, they don’t care if they found it or not. What people have lost is the rank of humanity that was dressed on them. It is the honor of humanity. We were sent down to earth to search for this honor. Another way to say it is that men was sent to earth to recognize their humanity. Allahu Akbar! We were sent to earth as ones who don’t recognize their humanity. The Lord of Might and Glory says -”Recognize yourselves!” What we should search for is our own selves, ourselves. We should search for our own identity, to recognize ourselves. That is the reason and wisdom of our being sent to dunya. (Source: SaltanatTV)
