Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim
Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi (qs), Sohbat of the 2nd of February, 2014.
As-salamu Alaykum, O those attending, O Yaran/lovers of Shah Mardan, O those who are following the way of Allah’s lions, O those who are lions, marhaba/welcome to you. Welcome to us. Don’t be like a lame cat, be like a lion. Madad ya RijalAllah. Madad ay gazanfar. Madad (asking support) O Shah Mardan. How nice you are, how nice is your association. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa liLlahi l-hamd. Our honor is with saying Takbir (Allahu Akbar). Sheikh Mehmed Effendi.
Our Lord Almighty Haqq, Subhanahu wa Ta’ala, has no bounds or limits with His grace and generosity. Our Lord is the Lord of Glory. One world, Sheikh Mehmed Effendi my son, one world doesn’t have the value of one little grain. Come to the valuable thing. Let’s say – Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Basmala Sharifa dresses you with magnificence. It dresses the universe with magnificence. What can we do? We will take according to our own capacity. Ask. Ask for the dress of magnificence. May they dress us as well. We are servants. What is our desire? Our desire is the satisfaction & pleasure of our Lord Almighty. May He be pleased & satisfied with us.
As-salamu alaykum O attendees. O Yaran Shah Mardan. Be beautiful, be nice. Don’t be ugly. Allah loves the beautiful. Beauty is the right that belongs to Allah Almighty Allah Almighty is Beautiful. He created beautifully. Ask for beauty. Beauty means kamal/perfection. Perfect ones are beautiful. Ugly ones are imperfect/ deficient. They are useless. Search for beauty, seek beauty. O our Lord, You created us beautiful. Let’s protect our beauty. That is our duty – to be able to protect the beauty that was given to us; to not become ugly. All prophets, alayhum as-salam, all of them taught – “O man, don’t be ugly because the One who created you, He created you beautiful.” That is why you must protect your beauty. Safeguard your beauty everywhere and from everything. Make an effort to increase your beauty. Beauty is an attribute that the Lord of Glory loves. He dressed that (beauty) on Prophet Adam. Try not to waste it.
Dastur/asking permission O Shah Mardan. Let’s protect our beauty. Who is ugly? Satan is ugly. Beautiful is the one who is wearing the light of the Lord Almighty. Satan was jealous of that. Satan said, “that beauty should be for me, not Adam.” Astaghfirullah, Astaghfirullah, Astaghfirullah. The whole fight started from that. Satan was jealous of the Prophet Adam. “That beauty should be for me”. O our Lord, You know best. O our Lord, grant us from the beauty that You granted Your Beloved Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam). We don’t want to be ugly. O our Lord, O our Lord. Allah Allah. What is valuable in dunya (this world), Sheikh Mehmed? It is beauty. No one wants to be ugly. They want to be beautiful. All creation desires beauty. From whom is that beauty? Allah Almighty granted it to His Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam). Safeguard that beauty. That beauty, that divine beauty, is the dress given to us that grants us honor and is the means by which we will stand in the Presence. He dressed us with that beauty and accepted us in the Presence.
Satan said – “It should be for me.” A voice from above, from the Throne said – “you are not worthy. You are not worthy.” Beauty is a Divine Grant from our Lord. The Lord of Glory does not accept ugly ones. He created man, He created him beautiful. Protect your beauty and protect the beauty of others too. Allahu Akbar wa liLlahi l-hamd. Allah Almighty is Beautiful. He created His Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam) beautiful. Run after that beauty. Don’t be ugly. Eat and drink, but don’t let that make you ugly because eating and drinking makes people ugly and greedy and removes their honor. The dress of beauty of the Lord of Glory, the dress from the Throne was given to Adam. He was beautiful.
Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa liLlahi l-hamd. Say Takbir. Say Takbir everywhere, Sheikh Mehmed Effendi. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa liLlahi l-hamd. If you see an ant, say Takbir. He gave the ant a beauty. He created the ant with a beauty that those who see it might say – Allahu Akbar, Subhan Allah. The ant was also given a beauty from the Lord of Glory. That beauty came from the Presence. Protect that beauty, my son. Let’s protect that beauty. Allahu Akbar. Azamati Hudara.
Allah Almighty gave greatness to His Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam). The greatest one among creation is our Master. Our Master is the blessed one who carries the appearance of the Owner of the Throne. He carries the beauty of the Owner of the Throne. That is why he became ‘Mustafa’. Is it understood, Sheikh Mehmed Effendi? Mustafa. “…’Ala Al-‘Arshi Astawa” (20:5) Which throne? Which one is the throne? He rose above it (the throne). No one knows what it is. Look at the value and importance of man. Man is the creation that has been dressed with the light of the Owner of the Throne. Ya Rabbi, may they increase our strength. It is not our place to ask You directly. However, You taught Your Beloved Habib – Allamal-insana ma lam ya’lam(96:5) (He taught man what he didn’t know) Which man? Man is the mirror of the magnificence of Allah Almighty, Mehmed Effendi. Man carries the appearance of the magnificence of Allah Almighty Jalla wa A’la. Azamati Hudar. Allahu Akbar.
Glorify and you will be glorified. If you don’t glorify, you have no value. Glorify and be honored. Fatiha.
Beauty is a grant from Allah Almighty. He granted to His Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam). Beauty is with His Habib, it comes from him. Ask to be beautiful. Run away from being ugly. Ugliness is the characteristic of satan, Sheikh Mehmed Effendi. May Allah open your heart. May He strengthen your light. May He give us the strength to destroy the evil of satan. Fatiha.
Satan is ugly. Why did it become ugly? Why did it become satan? Because it was ugly. If it was beautiful, it wouldn’t be satan. Beautiful ones have Divine Beauty. Satan doesn’t have that, it was taken away. May Allah teach us. May Allah explain to us. Allah Almighty’s Beloved Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam) is teaching us. O Yaran Shah Mardan, teach us. May we find our strength and power and glorify our Lord. Let’s say – Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar wa liLlahi l-hamd. Let’s say Takbir for our Mawla, Owner of heavens and earth. Fatiha.
May Allah accept your worship, Sheikh Mehmed Effendi. Recite for me. Recite, my son. Pray for me. May Allah increase your physical and spiritual strength so you may destroy the fortress of satan. So you may ruin satan’s traps. May the field open for believers, for the beautiful nation of the Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam). Bi hurmatil-Fatiha.
This is Mehmed Effendi. Be in safety. May you be a dragon. You will be like a dragon. You will destroy their kufur/disbelief with Allah’s permission.
Fatiha. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa liLlahi l-hamd.
