‘The sign when Allah does not love the servant is when you see that servant being busy with Malayani. And they asked him, ‘what is Malayani, ya Rasulullah?’ and he says, ‘knowledge that does not concern you.’ It’s very difficult to understand this, not concept, reality in these days because there’s so much confusion, now everything they see that is printed, they think that is knowledge because we’ve been taught in this system, everything that we read, it is knowledge. And we are taught isn’t the first commandment, the first order to recite? So we think reciting it is through reading too. It is not. That ayat is saying recite what? Recite in the name of your Lord, who what? Who created you. Because to recite so many people, to read, to get knowledge, so many people can just get knowledge for their own evilish, selfish, greedy, sheytanic reasons. But to read, to recite in the name of your Lord is completely different. But what Lord, just so there’s no confusion, what Lord? Because so many people, they take their egos, their sheytans, their arrogance as a lord, correct? But Allah swt is saying, ‘recite in the name of your Lord who created you.’ That’s clear. You’re worshiping to your desires; your desires did not create you. You’re worshiping to your parents who are not in the way of Allah and his Prophet who is stopping you in the way of Allah. They did not create you. Don’t take other lords before your Lord.’
