Beware the People of Filth
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
The following is adapted from a swuhbah from Shaykh Muhammad Nazhim Adil al-Haqqani (q.s.) on the 24th September 2010.
Shaykh Nazhim (q.s.) said we must to be rijalullah, men of Allah (s.w.t.), heroes for Allah (s.w.t.). If anyone were to look at such men, their heart would tremble. Such are the men who will be part of the armies of Imam al-Mahdi (a.s.). Good tidings come from Allah (s.w.t.) daily. They clean this filthy world of Shaythan and his followers. We must not be from those zibil, people of filth. There are two kinds of people in this world. One kind is precious and the other is rubbish. Now is that time, we must be aware that there is a brush coming to clean because this world has become filthy. The ones who are unclean will be taken away. We have reached the limits of dunya and the Day of Resurrection is approaching. From times before, multitudes have had their names written as unclean and they will be taken away.
So, who are the unclean? They are those who follow Shaythan. We have to repent and seek Refuge in Allah (s.w.t.). We have to be purified and not be counted amongst the unclean, the followers of Shaythan. Allah (s.w.t.) never likes the unclean. He is a God of Purity. The unclean are those who have taken their egos, their desires as their god. We must work to have our names written under the table of precious stones, of pearls, diamonds, rubies and emeralds. We must be precious in the Divine Sight.
The filth we speak of is a spiritual filth, not a physical one. We cannot say we take a bath every day, therefore, we are not in need of any other cleaning. A rat always travels through sewage channels and it does not consider itself dirty either. This world is that sewage channel. The impurity is of the self, within us. It is because people either do not believe in Allah (s.w.t.) or they do not follow His Divine Law. That is true filth. We are not speaking of baths. Even if any of us were to a bathe 50 times or more a day, we would still be unclean. We must be aware that there is a coming a storm to remove the unclean and to cleanse the rest. The ones they are Protected are safe. Divine vengeance is imminent for those without Protection, for those who are heedless and in love with the world. So be with Allah (s.w.t.) and be Protected from the trials of dunya.
