Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim
Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi (Qs), Sohbat of the 25th of October, 2013
As-salamu alaykum O Yaran/lovers of Shah Mardan. O holy ones. Let’s be happy, let’s be joyful. Let’s be joyful. Go ahead Ay Yaran Shah Mardan. What joy, our Almighty Mawla created us. Subhanahu wa Ta’ala. Ay Yaran Shah Mardan. Shah Mardan’s beloved friends, clean servants, pure servants, beautiful servants, honorable servants, servants raised high. Welcome to our assembly. Ay Yaran Shah Mardan. How beautiful you are, those who are attending Shah Mardan’s assembly. How beautiful they are, how pure they are. O holy ones. Ay Yaran Shah Mardan, watch over us so we can be pure servants. So we can be clean servants. That is what is desired.
Go ahead O Shah Mardan, inform us – what is required from people? To be an honorable servant. That is what is requested from us. To be an honorable servant. To eat, drink, run around – these give no benefit. That is why, O Shah Mardan, we want to listen to you. How can we be honorable? How can we be honorable? Allah Almighty has decreed mankind honorable. The Lord of Glory has made the children of Adam honorable. He gave mankind honor, Divine Honor. What a great rank. What a great honor. There is an addressing to mankind to “be honorable”. Be honorable, be clean, be pure, be beautiful. Be beautiful. Allah’s addressing to mankind – Be beautiful. Be honorable. How nice. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Your Yaran admire you. Our Lord wants us to be honorable. He wants us to be beautiful, to be honorable. He wants us to be pure.
Then let’s say – as-salamu alaikum O attendees, those who are attending. Masha’Allah. Divine Salam/greeting of peace has been given to mankind. “Salamun Qawlaan Min Rabbin Rahim” (36:58) Aman ya Rabbi. What magnificence, what a great dress of honor our Almighty Mawla has dressed on us. “Salamun Qawlaan Min Rabbin Rahim” (36:58) For whom is this honor? “Qawlaan Min Rabbin Rahim”. “Salamun Qawlaan Min Rabbin Rahim.” Our Lord, “Salamun Qawlaan Min Rabbin Rahim”. This is Salam/peace to you from Allah whose Mercy knows no bounds. What more do you want, O foolish ones? Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Everything has been forgotten. The heavenly addressing of honor has been forgotten. “Salamun Qawlaan Min Rabbin Rahim” (36:58) To whom is this Salam? The Merciful One, Allah Almighty, dressed us with the honorable dress of His Mercy. Then He is saying – “Salamun Qawlaan min Rabbin Rahim” Who is He greeting? He is giving Salam/greeting you, O foolish man!
Don’t be foolish, look at the addressing. “Salamun Qawlaan Min Rabbin Rahim” (36:58) Peace be upon you from Allah whose Mercy has no limits. Aman ya Rabbi. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. In the past, there were those who knew, but now no one knows, only ignorant ones remain. It is the time of the last days. All that is happening is a sign – We are now in the last days. It is the last days. Everything that is happening is a sign. A sign for what? They are signs that the world is coming to an end, the signs that are appearing. It is the time of the last days. That means there was a beginning. It started with Prophet Adam. Then what happened? There is a beginning of times and an end of times. We are now living in the end of times. What is the sign of last days? The signs that are taking place, all this fighting.
There is a war on earth for people to take the Divine Honor away from one another. “Let’s take the honor from clean people so they can be dishonorable creatures.” And that is why we are in the time of last days. When we say “last days”, it is the time when everything happens backwards, and everything loses its value. In this time, the honor of people has been lost, there’s no honor left. The honor that Allahu Dhul Jalal dressed on mankind is gone. It has been taken. Men have become enemies to one another and people are fighting to take that honor away from each other.
Mankind has been dressed with a dress of honor from heavens. Dress of honor – There is a dress of honor. People are fighting one another to take this dress of honor. The dress of honor has been dressed by Allah Almighty. Allah Almighty has dressed the dress of honor on mankind. What are you trying to do? You are fighting to take that dress of honor from each other. Shame. To take from each other the dress of honor that was dressed on you from heavens, to fight one another – that is not the order of heavens. Then what have people become? Excuse the expression. They are trying to remove the dress of honor that was given to mankind. What have they become? What is their characteristic? They became manure, filth. Those who are fighting to take the dress of honor given from heavens have lost their honor. And the people today are fighting for the dress of honor that was dressed on man from heavens. “That honor is with you” – someone says that, and the other says “No, it is with me”. The dress of honor is dressed from heavens, not from earth.
SubhanAllah. Sultan Allah. What is provoking Allah Almighty’s anger, the Divine Wrath? They are fighting to take away from each other the dress of honor that was given to them from the heavens. Shame on them. They became dishonorable creatures. They were honored and they lost that honor. That is why in the past they said – “it has become the last days, all that happens is a sign.” Our time now is the last days. Everything is backwards/wrong. Every dirtiness is out there. People are throwing every filth on one another. This is not humanity. It is not humanity. Mankind is the one for whom Allah Almighty said – “Salamun Qawlaan Min Rabbin Rahim” (36:58) This is the most honorable dress that the Lord of Glory dressed on mankind. The dress of humanity, you are trying to take it away from each other, trying to put each other down, trying to destroy and burn each other. This is not humanity.
Go ahead O Shah Mardan. What is the punishment for this? It means that Allah Dhul Jalal will strike those who try to take away people’s dress of mightiness and greatness. Heavenly wrath is coming now. There are earthquakes, there are floods and tornadoes. Mankind is bewildered. They don’t know what to do. Because you are trying to take away and destroy the honor that the Lord of Glory gave to mankind. Treat people with honor. Don’t be afraid of anything. Since you didn’t (honor them), take the punishment. Some have floods, some have fires. Forests are burning. Some have floods, some are punished with earthquakes. The heavens are sending punishment because they lost and want to lose the honor of honorable mankind. The heavens are sending floods, floods, earthquakes, earthquakes, fires. Fires that don’t go out and cannot be extinguished. Earthquakes that cannot be stopped. Aman ya Rabbi. And these are the signs that the Holy Books from heavens have informed us about.
Pull yourselves together O people. Protect your humanity, so that the heavens will protect you. If not, floods will take you away. Earthquakes will take you away and you will be finished. Because there is Divine Anger. In return for what they are doing to mankind, who has been honored by Allah Almighty, fire is being sent, floods are being sent, tornadoes are being sent, earthquakes are being sent. Try to stop it, O mankind. You can’t stop it. It is finished. Come back, come back to humanity. Come back to the honor of mankind – “Salamun Qawlaan Min Rabbin Rahim” – Allah Almighty has glorified mankind with this.
That means we are now in the last days, everything that happens is a sign. Fires are starting, no one knows where they started from. Floods are coming, no one knows where they came from. Earthquakes are happening, no one knows where they came from. Tornadoes are coming. Hafazana Allah. May Allah protect us. Come to the right way. O Yaran Shah Mardan. Let’s return to the right way because the heavens are addressing you of that way – “Salamun Qawlaan Min Rabbin Rahim” (36:58) “Salamun Qawlaan Min Rabbin Rahim” No earthquakes or floods or hurricanes or fires that appear from nowhere will harm you. They can’t touch you. Know your humanity. Return to your humanity. Teach this. If you don’t, they will teach you.
“Salamun Qawlaan Min Rabbin Rahim” Allahu akbar. O our Lord, forgive us. Send us a master O our Lord. “Salamun Qawlaan Min Rabbin Rahim” Fatiha.
There are fires burning, no one knows where they came from. Mountains are burning, forests are burning, houses are burning. Continents are colliding with one another. The ice is melting. Floods are sweeping everything away. Hurricanes are coming with such great force. Aman ya Rabbi. Tawba ya Rabbi. Tawba Astaghfirullah, forgive us our Allah. Tawba ya Rabbi, Tawba ya Rabbi, Tawba Astaghfirullah. These are nothing. “Inna Batsha Rabbika Lashadid” (85:12) “the punishment of your Lord is severe.” You cannot stand against it. Aman ya Rabbi. Forgive us. “Wa ‘fu’anna Wa ghfir Lana Wa rhamna.”(2:286).

Mawlana speaks about S. Jalaluddin Rumi Hz. and the Mevlevi Tariqah.
Hazrat Mawlana (Rumi) who is well known all over the world. Today his way unfortunately has been changed. Their rights have been taken away and they are banned from being with the people and the believers. Apart from this reason or that reason the ones who are in the Mevlevi Tariqa (Rumi) are being heedless. Instead of serving this tariqa (Sufi order), sadly they do acts which lessen the worth of this Lofty Tariqa. They are bringing harm to it and they are clouding its honour. Consequently there are loyal servants of Mawlana Jalaluddin Rumi and these matters bring sadness to their hearts. But we saw a hadith sharif and in this hadith sharif, the glorious Prophet Hazrat ‘alaihi ‘afdalu s-salat wa attammu taslima, mentions and declares the signs of the last times and the status of the believers, living at that time. He declared that “the Believers’ hearts will melt like salt melts in water.” When they asked: Why O Rasulullah? Because they won’t be able to correct all the madness and badness they see; in weakness they will have to watch what happening. For this reason their hearts will melt.
Therefore, Hazrat Effendi emphasizes the expression of a real deep sadness. Yet there is heavenly wisdom. When the Last Times arrive the work will be left to those who are unable; it will be entrusted to the incapable. Then everything will get completely mixed up. For none of their issues & problems will they find a solution. They will be insolvable. The more they try to solve them, the more they will get messed up. Then when it gets messed up, it will be a deadlock. We are in this state now, the state he mentioned. We are there. And now Hazrat Effendi is informing us about the condition of this Tariqa, that was born in Turkey, in Konya.
Unfortunately because of our unending carelessness, this great personality who has won the whole world’s appreciation and love, today we are not able to present him to our own people. We aren’t able to present him. We aren’t able to take from his spiritual powers. Only his whirling, ascension to the Divine love, this we are imitating or allowing people to imitate, here and in Europe or for our intellectual folk. We are making a show. The spiritual ceremony, the spiritual ceremony of the Mevlevi, we are presenting as a show to Europe to the USA. Let the tourists watch it and get happy like a folkloric dance. It is sad. Mawlana Jalaluddin Rumi did not bring this Tariqa from its source to make it a folkloric dance or show. Maybe it is for getting rid of the Asfala Safilin (95:5) and to bring Man to his high station in the Malakut. The time when Hazrat (Rumi) was whirling himself, he was surely not turning like a propeller on the ground. After some time turning on the ground making “Sama'” he was ascending to the heavens & when they hit the drum, its voice would awaken his physical being & he started descending to the ground.
This Lofty Tariqa, is like that. It is addressing the spirituality of Humans. It addresses both the enlightened spiritualities and the ordinary physicality. Nevertheless in reality everyone is attracted by this Tariqa. Sadly it remains in the hands of the incapable, as a show. I feel sorry for our Country whose people today are especially in need of spiritual training. They are feeling this. And because this lofty Tariqa came from our country and it is good for our nature also, their neglect of it is an inexcusable mistake.
Because all start with the “Adab Ya Hu” inscription. All Tariqa’s, and also the Lofty Mevlevi Tariqa, their first instruction is “Adab Ya Hu” They are reminded to have manners. The first thing we have lost is also manners. A nation’s worth and value is known by how advanced are its manners. Not with its richness, money, activities and trade. With manners is Man’s value. And society’s, community’s, nation’s values and reputations are known by the good manners they have. Sadly we are known as Eastern people but the Eastern people are those who teach good manners to all the world. Europe never has been in the circle of “Adab” and it still isn’t. Before they become Islamic and learn the Adab of the Eastern nations who were taught by Islam, they won’t be able get into the circle of Adab. And all the Tariqa’s come originally to bring the nations, Ummahs, communities, people, to the circle of Adab.
All right, Hay Hay Bal Tariqatu Kulluha ala…
~ Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi (Qs) -Sept 18, 1989
O our Lord, our Subhan, our Sultan. You created us the way You wanted. Ay Yaran Shah Mardan. Listen to the holy words of Shah Mardan and you will become beautiful. You will become more beautiful and mighty. You will be dressed with more beauty from your Creator. O people, search for beauty. Don’t run after ugliness. These are a few words from Shah Mardan. Don’t run after ugliness. Run after beauty, because your Creator created you beautiful. In order to see that beauty, in order to dress you with that beauty, in order to make you carry the honor of that beauty, your Creator granted you this (beauty). He said – I want them to be My deputies. If there were millions of satans, they could not take away the beauty given to mankind. But the people of this time want to take away that beauty from each other. The One who gave (beauty) is the Creator. He gave that beauty to mankind. Try to protect that beauty.
Ay Yaran Shah Mardan. Run after beauty. Your Lord is the Most Beautiful of beautiful ones, our Lord. You dressed us with beauty. There is no power that can take that beauty away from us. Say “Subhan Allah” and be dressed with beauty. Say “wal hamdu lillah” and be dressed with beauty. Say “wa la ilaha illa Allahu wAllahu akbar” so you can be dressed with the dress of majesty and beauty. Be human, O mankind. Yaran, the lovers of Shah Mardan. Let’s cheer up and glorify our Lord. Let’s praise our Lord. He created us. He dressed us with such a dress of beauty that millions of satans can’t take that beauty away from us. Then let’s say – Bismillahi r- Rahmani r-Rahim.
~ Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (Qs)
Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim
“The sun rises every day. What does it rise with? With the bliss of love. If it doesn’t have the bliss of love, it cannot rise. If it doesn’t have the bliss of love, the sun cannot show its rays. O our Lord, may our souls be brightened with the light of faith. May they open. Let us ask from Janab-ul Haqq, let us ask for light from Janab-ul Haqq. Let’s ask for light. A man without light is not worth a penny. Light. Let’s ask for light. O our Lord. O lovers of Shah Mardan. Our Allah. Our Lord, may we be filled with light. Who is not filled with light is not full with the bliss of love. Ask for the bliss of love. Ask for the bliss of love from Janab-ul Haqq. May we revive. May we revive. May we revive with the light of the heavens. Our Allah, our Sultan, You are Subhan, You are Sultan. Janab-ul Haqq dresses in light. He dresses in light. May He dress us in light, too.”
~ Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi (Qs)
Please go on O friend, Shah-i Mardan! Please come and listen to this, O beloved friends of Shahi Mardan! If you should lose the whole world, don’t despair! Don’t say, I have lost something. What you lost is the evil world. Janab Allah didn’t create you for this evil world, so why fall in despair? No, He created you for His service. For His service. If you lose this, it is the biggest loss. Serving our Lord, is the biggest honour. If we lose this, we have no value; we are bad! Please go on Shah-i Mardan, Your friends admire you.
Allahu Dhu l-Jalal, likes His servants to turn to Him. My servant turns to, and he says, “Allahu Akbar”. He salutes My Bayt Muazzama. This salutation is to Me. MashaAllah. As a response to this, wa li ‘abdin ma sa’al. Our Lord says, whatever My servant asks. “O those who ask for other than Me, they are heedless ones. They are not good.” Be in My Presence, be at My door! Ask from Me, O people! Your Lord Who created you, Who loves you, wants you to turn to Him. He wants you to turn towards His Bayt, and wants you to prostrate, to make sajda.
He wants your servanthood. Nothing else does He want. What a shame! “Ey, I wonder if – shall I buy this house, or shall I buy this estate if I carry on this work”. Don’t occupy yourself with any other business, don’t! We shouldn’t have any other business. We don’t have business other than servanthood to our Lord. May our hearts open up! Our Lord loves us. May we rejoice in His service. Please go on Shah-i Mardan. Your friends admire you. Satan is deceiving people with this evil world. It always deceives people with this evil world.
No! Observe your honourable service. The honour of man lies in service to Allahu Dhu l-Jalal, Who created him. Don’t strive for anything else! Don’t strive for anything else! “Salamun qawlan min Rabbin rahim” (36:58) Allah. Salams from our Lord. What shall we ask for? What else shall we ask for? “Salamun qawlan min Rabbin rahim”. Whose rahmat (blessings) is endless. His oceans of blessings have no limits, Allah Dhu l-Jalal is giving us salams! What do you want O ignorant people? Salamun qawlan min Rabbin rahim, His blessings are endless, unlimited. May there be salam (peace) upon you from Your Lord, salamun qawlan min Rabbin rahim.
What a great honour! Run after this! Then your problems will be gone, your pain and grief will be lifted. Go after the yaran, Ay yaran Shah-i Mardan. May you smile! May your hearts be refreshed with joy! May you be in light! May we be light! This is the advice from Shah-i Mardan. Ay yaran Shah-i Mardan! Your friends admire you! Be in the presence of our Mawla, Who will save us from this shameful world, Who will grant us the honourable life! Don’t look for anything else! Don’t run after eating and drinking! Don’t run after making girlfriends or boyfriends! May our ends be good!
