Oh Lord Myself! Oh Lord Myself!
(The cry on the Day of Judgment will be Oh Lord myself! Oh Lord myself. A Friday sermon has brought this to the fore in a very candid manner. Here is that sermon. See here for the Second Friday Sermon that has already been posted some time back.)
All praise in for that Lord except whom none can be expected to solve the riddles and to remove the afflictions. None is called to remove the troubles but Him. And there is none in both the worlds who is the desire of the lovers but Him. And the there no aim and object of the intercessors in the two worlds but Him. All the creatures are weak and there is no power except Him. All people are dependent – only He is independent. There is no creator and no one with Greatness but only Him. And there is no protector and helper but Him. Forgiver of sins, acceptor of repentance, tough decider, powerful, the one and only worthy of worship is none other than Him. There is no creator except for Allah and only He is the One who gives you sustenance from the sky and the earth. There is none worthy of worship besides Him. There is no creator, no sustainer except Him. Who is the owner of ear and eye except Him? And who is knower of secrets and hidden things except Him?
When Moses (AS) called on Sinai then he too said the same thing – there is none worthy of worship except Him! When Jonah (Hazrat Yunus (AS)) called in the belly of the fish then he too said the same thing – there is none worthy of worship except Him! When Yusuf (AS) called from the depths of the well then he too proclaimed that there is none worthy of worship except Him. When Ibrahim (AS) called in the burning fire then he too said the same thing that there is none worthy of worship except Him and we bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah, He is alone and has no partners, and He is Alive and there is none worthy of worship except Him. And we bear witness that our Leader and our Master Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) is His servant and messenger. May Mercy of Allah descent upon him and his progeny and on his companions, and Blessings and Peace. Know that this world will be over and so will be the joys within it and the obedience done therein will sustain, to spend a life of obedience in this world is the cause of sustenance and endurance of bliss in hereafter. Its (the world’s) gist is to cease and its end is death.
Dear brother the body is weaker and weaker and the journey is longer and longer and the travel allowance is smaller and smaller and the ocean is very deep. And the hell is extremely burning and the path is very complicated and the balance is extremely just and the Doomsday is very near and the Ruler is High and Mighty and the announcer is Gabriel (AS). He declares from Allah that Heaven is my firm promise and Hell is my Pledge and He says that Kaba is my visitation.
And on the Day of Judgment Adam (AS), who is a great servant of Allah, will say Oh Lord myself, Oh Lord myself! And Noah (AS), the receiver of deliverance from Allah, will say on the Day of Judgment, Oh Lord myself, Oh Lord myself! And friend of Allah Hazrat Ibrahim (AS) will say on the Day of Judgment, Oh Lord myself, Oh Lord myself! And Hazrat Ismaeel – the one sacrificed in the path of Allah will say on the Day of Judgment, Oh Lord myself, Oh Lord myself! And Dawood (AS), caliph of Lord will say on the Day of Judgment, Oh Lord myself. And Hazrat Sulaiman (AS), the ruler will say on the Day of Judgment, Oh Lord myself. And Hazrat Yusuf (AS), the verifier of Allah will say on the Day of Judgment, Oh Lord myself. Hazrat Moses (AS) will say the same thing and so will Hazrat Isa (AS). But our beloved Prophet, our leader, our supporter, our messenger (PBUH) will say on the Day of Judgment, Oh Lord my Generation! (Worrying more about his followers than himself). And the Great, Controller, Most High and Granter of Peace Allah will say Oh My beloved! Oh My beloved! Today there is no fear for you and do not grieve!
May Allah Most High grant us abundance from Noble Qur'an and may Allah Most High grant us benefit from the verses of the Noble Qur'an and wisdom by remembrance. Verily the Being of Lord Most High is All-Endowing and Merciful and Lord of the world, Acceptor of good deeds and Loving and Kind.
