Salaam, Jumma Mubarak, Sayyid Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al Haqqanis Classic Sobah from 2011 on the proof of having a Guide (Murshid) from Quran Al Kareem
“In Islam, is there a murshid (guide)? What do the scholars say?
مَن يَهْدِ اللَّهُ فَهُوَ الْمُهْتَدِي وَمَن يُضْلِلْ فَلَن تَجِدَ لَهُ وَلِيًّا مُّرْشِدًا
Man yahdillahu fa-huw’ al-muhtadi wa man yudlil falan tajida lahu waliyyan MURSHIDAN.
He whom Allah guides is rightly guided, but he whom Allah leaves to stray, for him you will not find a protector to lead him to the Right Way. (al-Kahf, 18:17)
That’s it: they gave me a sign last night for those who are not accepting a murshid, a rightly guided one. “Murshidan” is one word and it is enough, meaning that for every human being there must be a guide. The one who does not have a guide, this is a sign that he has gone astray. Qur’an is saying “The one who is guided by Allah is truly guided and who has gone astray cannot find a saint to guide him.”
SubhanAllah, the Holy Qur’an! How do they deny the rightly guided ones? Allah (swt) says, “For every human being there must be a guide to guide them,” because the rightly-guided one is like the sun. “Waliyyan murshidan” means the attributes of the murshid must be of a saintly station. Not just anyone can be a guide. The nation now is denying everything in the Holy Qur’an, which says for every servant there must be a saintly guide, waliyyan murshidan
Without a saintly guided one, waliyan murshidan, there cannot be victory. That word, SubhanAllah, can change the whole world altogether. Laa ilaaha illa-Llah Muhammadan Rasoolullah (s)! We understand, actually I am ashamed to say “I understand.” Make us understand! O Lord, I am ashamed to ask, because a saintly servant is sufficient 1000 times to make us understand, to save the servant by means of the light of his sainthood. The servant is in darkness and the wali is like the sun. We understand. I am ashamed to say “I understand.” One saint can make us understand. So why ask from the Lord? But it is to magnify our Lord, Allah (swt), it is permitted, in order not to forget our Lord. First manify Him (swt) when addressing Him.”
