Salaam, Sayyid Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al Haqqanis (q) Sobah on Mankinds claim to be something
“What can an ant claim in front of a mountain? What will it say? What will it say? “It’s mine. This mountain is mine.” What value does that have? Turn back to your Lord, Jalla wa ‘Ala, Subhanahu wa Ta’ala. Ya Rabbi, ya Allah.
Tiny ants are everywhere. A tiny ant. What can it claim? What will it claim? Of what will it boast? Aman ya Rabbi. Tawba astaghfirullah. Tawba astaghfirullah. A man is not yet aware of his humanity. What is a man? O our Lord, who are we? An ant. What does an ant take and give? What can it ever give and what can it ever take? Even a hundred, even they become thousand; even a thousand, even if they become a hundred thousand. What’s its use? So this is our condition. It’s like this tiny dot in front of the mountains. Who are we? We are nothing. O our Lord, forgive us.”
