Audio Clip and Translation of some pertinent last advices of Hazrat Moulana Saleemullah Khan Rahimahullah to the Ulamaa
Listening Time: 4 minutes 58 seconds
We are living in an era of Modernism. Our Ulama, pious and soon-to-graduate students have left the way of our pious elders (Akaabir). Today in the homes of Ulema, TV is present. Ulama are now making movies of different gatherings. Today, without much effort, you can easily find pictures of Ulamaa sitting with strange women. With my own eyes, I have seen senior Muftis eating with a fork and knife. I am filled with fear when I look at the large number of Ulamaa, Madaaris and graduating students.
Many will find my words very offensive. However, as mentioned, “the command of Laa Ilaaha Illallah is directed to me.” I am forced to say these words. Whoever feels bad, let them feel bad; I am not worried. Whoever is not happy with what I am saying, then let them be unhappy; I am not concerned. The buzrukhs whose names I have taken, I even see these changes in their very own children. I am witnessing these innovations in their children.
To those who are graduating today and all the Ulamaa, I am advising that if you seek good for yourself, if you aspire to be successful, if you desire and wish to achieve something, for Allah’s sake, don’t fall into the trap of Modernism. By falling into Modernism, you will destroy yourselves and others as well.
Do not take this lightly.
There is only one way: اتقوا الله و كونوا مع الصادقين “Fear Allah Ta’ala and remain with the Saadiqeen (pious, truthful servants).”
Adopt Taqwa. Taqwa is only acquired by staying in the company of the صادقين (pious). You know very well that great care must be taken when identifying who are the صادقين (pious). Many have adopted the (outward appearance) of the صادقين (pious) but I swear by Allah that they are not صادقين (pious). Therefore, in this matter, one should be extremely cautious.
