What is cleanness and what is dirtiness in Islam?

What is cleanness and what is dirtiness in Islam?

The Physical cleanness, everyone is clean, they go to the shower two, three times a day. But the dirtiness is the disobedience.

Sheytan was a beautiful creature, he was shining inside the Paradises. Angels, they were looking up to that one. His appearances was very beautiful too. Soon as he became disobedience to Allah, that Nur, that light went away, and he turned into the worst ugly creature through disobedience. And he was sent down to earth. He changed all that with disobedience.

Islam came to make us to be clean, to be clean from every wrong ideas and to enter into Paradise. Allah swt is saying to us, ‘You must come out clean because where you came from is Paradise and Paradise is for clean people. When you go to the world you are dirtying yourself. Clean yourself before you come out from it and only then will you come back to Paradise. Otherwise, if you didn’t clean yourself in the world, then the fire is waiting for you because the fire is the only thing that will clean you.’

Maybe you don’t know but I used to do welding job. I was a welder and I used to do swords. I work on big pieces of metals that were very rusty. There was a coal fire burning and when I put that rusty metal inside the fire, the whole thing turned red. Then I took it out, and placed it on a metal platform and start hitting it with a hammer… tak, tak, tak, tak, two three times and later when it cooled down I would find that there is no more rust. It cleaned the rust right away. If you want to clean that rust by hand it would be impossible. But putting it in the fire, taking it out, putting it on earth, tak, tak, tak three times and it is shiny (Sheykh smiles).

So Allah swt is saying to us that if you come out dirty from this life then the fire is going to clean you. Bodily dirtiness is not like that rust. The body may be dirty on the outside. Maybe you worked too much and you didn’t get the chance to clean yourself up and the Angel of Death came to you. That is okay. Dirtiness is here (Sheykh pointing at the heart).

Pride is the biggest dirtiness that man can have. And praising his own ego, ooh… Then you do need to stay some time in the fire because that is a big dirtiness that you have inside and it needs to be cleaned.
If you think of life like this and if you think like this every day, when Maghrib time approaches we start judging our own selves making our own accounting. Then slowly we will reach somewhere. Daily we will put our lives in front of us saying, ‘I did this, this, this and this today. I got up in the morning I went to this way I came across this person and the person looked very ugly to me but I still did not think bad about this person and I prayed for that one. This happened that happened…’ and you calculate your own self and you can find for yourself what kind of life you have lived today.

So that is important. You must get rid of that smell. You must get rid of the inside dirtiness. That’s why Islam came, to get rid of the characteristics of the ego.

Waliyullahi Sahibu Saif Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S)

Man is not watching to see and to realizing, to understand through the history that Allah SWT is giving to us through all holy books. Some may not like what the Qu’ran is saying. It’s okay. Take what the Taurat (Torah) is saying. Look what’s being mentioned in Taurat, in the story of Namrud (Nimrod) and Ibrahim(Abraham) (A.s.). What Namrud declared?

He said ” I am the lord of the earth. Everywhere belongs to me. ” And Allah put 1 servant in front of him saying to him, “Leave that arrogance. Make prostration to your Lord who has given you all this power.” Saying to him, “Lord? I am the lord. I am the creator. What your lord does?”

“He gives life and takes life.”

That one was saying, “It’s easy. I do the same.” He put 2 prisoners in front of him saying , ” One I am setting free. I am giving life to him. The other one , take his life. Kill him.” Hmm. Then Ibrahim (As) was saying to him, “In that case….”, Prophets don’t argue. He said, “In that case, my lord is raising the sun from the East. You stop it. You raise it from the west.”

Namrud started shaking. And knowing that he cannot do that he said to him, “Not even the one you are claiming to be your Lord can do that.” He said , ” He can.” For that is Allah promising from that day, “Before Judgement Day, We are going to raise the sun from the west one time. Make sure that you are asking forgiveness up till that day. When the sun is rising from the west again, the door of forgiveness is closed. no one’s asking for forgiveness after that is going to be accepted.

Stand for Truth even if you are alone-Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S)

Now, I’m going to give you one more example and then we will have our dinner inshaAllah. This situation is just bringing you back to the Prophet’s (sws) time. They did all kinds of cruelties to the Prophet (sws). He didn’t say any word against them. Then finally he left Mecca and he came to Medina. And the people of Medina accepted him, supported him. So the people of Mecca decided to say, ‘If we leave them to stay, they are going to become stronger. So it’s better to go now to destroy them’. It’s just like what they’re trying to do to me here.

When the Holy Prophet (sws) is given order by Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) saying, ‘Start defending yourselves now’, only 300 Sahaba went out there to defend themselves against 4,000 people coming with the best weapons in their hands. And they didn’t have weapons. They had only sticks and things in their hands. They went out there to defend their rights.

Before the war began another stranger was coming there and saying, ‘What’s happening here?’ And they said to him, ‘This is what’s happening’. He said, ‘You mean this group of people prepared and came to destroy you because you believe in Allah and His Prophet (sws)?’ They said, ‘Yes’. And he said, ‘Can I join in? Because it seems like they are taking your rights away and I should be on your side’. Looking at the 300 people and looking at the 4,000, he knew that there’s a big possibility that they are going to lose. He said, ‘I am standing and defending the truth. This is wrong’. They brought him to the Prophet (sws) and the Prophet (sws) said to him, ‘Then why don’t you believe what I am just saying to you? Do you have any better evidence than this? Just say ‘La ilaha illallah Muhammadur Rasulullah’ and after you go into that war, either you will become a martyr or you will become a veteran’. And he said, ‘What do I have to do?’ The Prophet (sws) said, ‘This is what it is’. He said, ‘This is true. I accept it.’

And the war began. The person just had a spear in his hand. He tried to throw it but before he could throw it, one arrow came to him and he died. He didn’t do any single thing. And he was kind of a rebel. He didn’t do a single thing. After the war the Holy Prophet (sws) looked at that one and said, ‘This one just entered to the best place of Paradise’. They said, ‘He didn’t do anything’. He said, ‘He defended the truth. He stood on the side of the truth’.

If you are not doing anything then at least stand on the side of the truth just like all these people who are doing now.

Cross dressing-Sign of Doomsday,Discourse of Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S)

Holy Prophet (asws) is saying, ‘Open signs of the Qiyamat is when you walk in the streets, you are not going to recognize which one is male, which one is female.’

Isn’t that what’s happening now? Say to me that this is not happening to you? Go walk in the street and you’ll see.

Signs of the last days, Judgement Day is when the males, they are going to be satisfied with each other. Females they are going to be satisfied with each other. Isn’t that what’s happening now?

Don’t be fooled by sheytan. Yes. Save yourselves from that sickness. Pull yourself away. Even if you see, don’t turn your head to look at it. They are committing the biggest sin and you are being partner of it. At least one arrow from sheytan is coming out to your heart that time.

Any time when somebody is committing a sin, and you are turning to look at it, sheytan is aiming to your heart hitting to your heart. Slowly, that’s why slowly, people they are finding familiarity with that. That means you are getting fooled. Be careful, Sheytan is very clever on that way.

Don’t let sheytan to fool you. If you get hooked by sheytan, ahaa, you’ll be in big trouble later. You need to have somebody very strong to cut that rope away. And that time, you‘re going to scream. You’re going to cry. That is what’s happening to people.

Pull yourself away from that. If you save yourself, help will reach to you. If the whole world becomes disobedient, if you are obedient one, a special rahmat is going to come to you.

Allah doesn’t forget you. Allah doesn’t forget any creature that He has created. He’s not forgetting the ants that He has created. He’s not forgetting all the animals that He has created. There’s uncountless kind of creatures living in the oceans, in the sea, He’s not forgetting them. Uncountless creatures they are living in the mountains, He’s not forgetting them. Uncountless creatures living under the earth, He’s not forgetting them. The man that He has created in Ahsani-Taqweem, the most perfect, you think He’s going to forget you?

He didn’t. But you forget Allah. You are not remembering Him. You are not remembering Him. You disconnect yourself from that One. If you cut the wiring coming to that light, no light is going to be here. That’s what man did. They cut that wire that is coming from his Lord to him. And he’s in darkness now. He’s not seeing light. Because he’s in darkness, he’s looking everywhere, it is in darkness. Everywhere is complete darkness.

Spirituality flourish in Quietness: Discourse of Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S)


Everyone is talking in these days. Just talking nonsense. Talking back and forth. One says one word and the other one replaces it with ten. The other one doesn’t think to say, `Well, maybe this person is right. Let me just stop.’ No.

‘He said ten words? I am going to give back a hundred.’

That’s the instruction coming from Sheytan. Sheytan is saying that, ‘You must. Don’t stand at the bottom of this. Don’t sit to say this. Who’s that one to say? Give answer back. You have time. You are free.’

Leave those squareheads because that is another problem we have now with believers. They are arguing back and forth and they are spending their lives also with arguments. That’s how Sheytan is fooling us.

What do you believe? You believe this life?

“Yes.” Then follow. Leave everything else.

Is that what the Holy Prophet (sws) said to us? Yes. He said, “In Ahir Zaman you are going to reach to a time when you may know very little. Hold on tightly to those things and live according to that. Be sincere ones. You will find safety.”

It is not our duty to run around now to try to change this world. No. They don’t want to change. We cannot go back and forth arguing with them. It is forbidden. Holy Prophet (sws) forbid us saying, “No arguments. Don’t argue.”

They said, “Ya Rasulullah, even when we are right?”

He said, “When you are right, don’t argue. When you are wrong, run away completely from the arguments.”

When you are right, eh, if they are forcing you so much then say, “Lakum dinukum walia deen.” Keep your religion the way you want.

Success lies in the Obedience to the Creator: Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S)


Man, when he becomes disobedient to Allah(swt), everything around him becomes disobedient to him. When the man becomes obedient to Allah, everything around, Allah makes that one to be obedient to him.

This is the knowledge that is coming to us through Prophets. And anyone who follows that, they win Dunya and Ahirat. Anyone who left, that Dunya life that they had even if they collected, they are not able to spend it properly.

Millions of people today and the majority of people today on the face of earth, they don’t have the poverty that it was happening a hundred years ago. A hundred years ago, people they didn’t have a piece of bread to eat. They didn’t have proper clothes to wear, but they were staying on the Siratul Mustaqim, on the Right Road.

Today’s people are living like Kings. Yes, the one on welfare is living like a King. Because the kings, when we go back seven hundred, eight hundred years ago, a thousand years ago, two thousand years ago, the Kings, they didn’t have this luxury. Touch here, you have the light. Touch here, you have air‐conditioning. Touch there have heat. Now, no longer touching too. Everything works automatically for you.

Allah is giving this knowledge to the man saying to you, “Look, look you are working with this, I’m making this life easy for you.” Earning is easy. The food is enough in this world that is coming out not to feed only these people on earth, maybe three times more. But still people are hungry. Still people are thirsty. Still people, they are in debts twenty‐four hours a day.

Only one reason: Because we broke our relationship with our Lord. We destroyed that relationship, as of individual, as of jama’at, as of nations. Our leaders, the nation leaders, are running top speed only for the world. They are not running to make it better for this mankind, to prepare something better for them, for the service of Allah (swt).

So when we are seeing that our own children, or our friends, and our loved ones, they become disobedient to us, it is not bringing happiness to us. We get very sad. And it is the nature of man, must be sad.

Do you think that Allah (swt) is not sad because you are disobedient to Him? Because we are disobedient to Him?

We must think on it. We must force our self to think on it.
