Advice: Learn and Implement.

Let us make sure we obtain the Obligatory Knowledge, implement it, and be sincere about it in our hearts. Let us spread that knowledge and teach it to others. Let us be among those who protect and preserve the creed of Prophet Muhamamd. He who has the perfect love for the Prophet would follow the Prophet’s teachings regarding the matters of the lawful and the unlawful. He who only claims to have the perfect love for the Prophet and does not follow him in the matters of the lawful and the unlawful, is a swindler and a liar.

Let us speak the truth with sound statements. Let us order what is lawful and forbid what is unlawful and encourage others to do the same. Recognize Sufism and know the true Sufis are those who follow the Prophet and propagate that knowledge through the acceptable methodologies. They are those who brought victories and opened the lands and unified the Muslims throughout the Islamic history. They are the ones who spread Islam and defended the Religion. The true Sufis today are endeavoring in sincerity to establish unity among the Muslims. In doing so they are following the path the Prophet prescribed--as did the Companions, their followers, and all the great scholars of Islam.

Allah said in the Qur’an in Surat Al ^Imran, Ayah 103:
 

(وَاعْتَصِمُواْ بِحَبْلِ اللهِ جَمِيعًا وَلاَ تَفَرَّقُواْ)
(وَاذْكُرُواْ نِعْمَةَ اللهِ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذْ كُنتُمْ أَعْدَاء فَأَلَّفَ بَيْنَ قُلُوبِكُمْ فَأَصْبَحْتُم بِنِعْمَتِهِ إِخْوَانًا وَكُنتُمْ عَلَىَ شَفَا حُفْرَةٍ مِّنَ النَّارِ فَأَنقَذَكُم مِّنْهَا كَذَلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ اللهُ لَكُمْ ءايَاتِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَهْتَدُونَ {103} وَلْتَكُن مِّنكُمْ أُمَّةٌ يَدْعُونَ إِلَى الْخَيْرِ وَيَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَأُوْلَئِكَ هُمُ الْمُفْلِحُونَ {104} وَلاَ تَكُونُواْ كَالَّذِينَ تَفَرَّقُواْ وَاخْتَلَفُواْ مِن بَعْدِ مَا جَاءهُمُ الْبَيِّنَاتُ وَأُوْلَئِكَ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌ {105} يَوْمَ تَبْيَضُّ وُجُوهٌ وَتَسْوَدُّ وُجُوهٌ فَأَمَّا الَّذِينَ اسْوَدَّتْ وُجُوهُهُمْ أَكْفَرْتُم بَعْدَ إِيمَانِكُمْ فَذُوقُواْ الْعَذَابَ بِمَا كُنْتُمْ تَكْفُرُونَ {106} وَأَمَّا الَّذِينَ ابْيَضَّتْ وُجُوهُهُمْ فَفِي رَحْمَةِ اللهِ هُمْ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ {107} تِلْكَ ءايَاتُ اللهِ نَتْلُوهَا عَلَيْكَ بِالْحَقِّ وَمَا اللهُ يُرِيدُ ظُلْمًا لِّلْعَالَمِينَ {108} وَللهِ مَا فِي السَّمَوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الأَرْضِ وَإِلَى اللهِ تُرْجَعُ الأُمُورُ {109} كُنتُمْ خَيْرَ أُمَّةٍ أُخْرِجَتْ لِلنَّاسِ تَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَتَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَتُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللهِ وَلَوْ ءامَنَ أَهْلُ الْكِتَابِ لَكَانَ خَيْرًا لَّهُم مِّنْهُمُ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ وَأَكْثَرُهُمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ)

which means: [Apply the rules that are in the Book of Allah; adhere to the Religion of Allah, and do not disunite ]. In this verse Allah told us explicitly the basis of unity and its foundation is adhering to the Book of Allah and adhering to the matters of the Religion--knowledge of which is acquired by learning it from trustworthy teachers. If one does not have the reliable knowledge of what is in the Book of Allah and what is in the Religion he cannot adhere to their laws.

Allah told us this is the basis of the unity, i.e., to be knowledgeable, and hence, to adhere to the principles of the Religion. This is what the true Sufis in the past did and this is what the true Sufis now are doing. We call all to adhere to what is in the Book of Allah and to what is in the sayings of the Prophet, by acquiring the knowledge of the Religion through trustworthy and knowledgeable teachers who themselves took their knowledge from trustworthy and knowledgeable teachers, who have a similar chain reaching back to the best teacher of all, Prophet Muhammad.

I ask Allah to make us among those who order the lawful and forbid what is unlawful and to grant us the sincerity in all the matters of our Religion and all that which we do. I ask Allah to make us among those who strive to teach and spread the creed of Ahl us-Sunnah, and who do that seeking the reward from Allah, and not fearing anyone in that course.
Allah knows best.
