Love Oceans

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

Shaykh al-Akbar, Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi (Qs), Sohbat of the 5th of February, 2014.

Sultan ul Awliya

Marhaban, O yaran Shahi Mardan. Let us start. Let us say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. The Name that makes the Earth & the Heavens tremble- Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. O our Lord! You granted us this. May You forgive our sins, O our Lord. As-Salamu Alaikum!

Shaykh Mehmet Effendi, sit comfortably. Sit comfortably, sit comfortably. We are saying “Sit comfortably in the assembly”, the order is like this- O yaran Shahi Mardan. (So that) the Ahbab of Shahi Mardan may not be burdened with any difficulty, they may be in comfort. Thanks to Allah. How beautiful. Tariqatuna as-sohba- “Our way is through association”, all the mashayikh would say. Our Shaykh Sultanu-l Awliya also says like this. Tariqatuna as-sohba- Our way is through association. What is sohbat? It is the way of being ahbab/lovers. For whom? For the lovers. For the lovers. May love be a dress for us.

Dastur O Rijal Allah, madad O Shahi Mardan. I say “Dastur”. Insan/Man is really the “Hazrat al-Insan”. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa Lillahi l-Hamd. He is Who creates, He is Who keeps us alive- Allahu Dhu-l Jalal. Thanks to Allah- He dressed on us from the dress of the universes of existence, that we appear in existence. If He doesn’t dress, we can’t be seen. (Otherwise) one is left in the universe of ghayb-unseen. All Praise/Hamd be to Allah Almighty, thanks be to Him that He dressed on us a beautiful shape. He granted us spirituality. He made us from the nation of His Great Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam). He also called us “My servant”.

“Ya ‘Ibadi Fattaquni”(39:16). Allah Allah! (O My servants fear Me). Is it not like this? “Fear Me”, meaning keep your adab. Keep the adab. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa Lillahi l-Hamd. May all burdens on us be lifted. Our son, Shaykh Mehmet Effendi. Let us see what they will make us speak. ‘Ismau wau”, listen and keep what you listen. “‘Ismau wau fa idha ra’aytum fantafiu”. If you listen, you take benefit- it is such a benefit that no one else can give you that benefit. Thanks be to Allah, thanks be to our Lord. Allahu Akbar.

You are Subhan, O Lord. You are Sultan, O Lord. You are Who creates, O Lord. You granted us from Your love & longing, O my Lord. He granted His Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam), and from His Habib (sas) came to us the love, to love, the muhabba/love, the mubabbatuLlah/love of Allah, the love of the Habib (sas), the love of the awliya. O yaran! Dive into the oceans of love, to take from it. Dunya is not something to love. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar. What benefit comes from loving the stones, the mountains, the oxen, the cows of dunya? It has no benefit. The muhabba, the love- the love for the Beloved of Allahu Dhu-l Jalal. O glorious Prophet! (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam) May he accept us too, may we be under his feet too. May we be filled with his love & longing. Who doesn’t have love & longing is like a dry log, son. What benefit can come from a dry log, what can it be? Allahu Allah Allahu Rabbi ma li siwahu. Illa Hu.

People now are lost and confused about themselves. They have fallen into a bewildered state. They are after the trash of dunya, they want to collect from that trash. Ok, collect and pile! What benefit does the Empire of China give to the Chinese people? What does the power of a savage bring to his country, to his people? What does India bring to the Indians? Nothing! Nothing! Nothing. Ask. Ask. Look to what will be gained. Look to our Lord, look to our Lord’s Beloved, to His Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam). Run after him so that you can get what you want to get, so that you gain power, so that beauty is dressed on you. Beauty is the grant of Rabbu-l Izzat. He dressed it on His Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam).

No one can reach the beauty ocean of the Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam). If he does, he will drown. If he does, he will get drowned. Allahu Akbar. O our Lord! May You forgive us. Don’t make us run after this dirty dunya. It has nothing. It has nothing. What does it have? What will you do with gold, with silver? Will they put it in your grave, O man? What will you do with them? Don’t be after gold & silver but be after the love of the Sultan of the Prophets (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam). You too, dive into the ocean of love and you may be filled with love. What you may get from dunya- What is the goods that the Sultan of the Prophets (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam) brought? It is the love of Allah. The Sultan of the Sultans, our Master (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam)! He didn’t bring you the soil, the stones of the earth. No. What can happen with them? Take it, this mountain is yours. Take it, these animals are yours. What is their benefit for you?

What you will take is that of the Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam)- whom He loved and who, inside that love, dived into the ocean- our Master (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam). Dive into that ocean of love into which he dived. Dive into the glorification oceans of He Who created him. Or else, take this dunya! Take it! Say “this mountain is yours”. Can I carry that mountain on my shoulders? No. “This mountain is yours. These animals are also yours”. Who loves the animals is animal. Who loves the animals? Animals do. Who loves the one who is up, who loves the Habib takes from his light, takes from his love & his longing. Look to that one. O our Lord, may You forgive us. O our Lord! May You accept us to be Your servants. May we do Your service. How beautiful it is to be a servant to Allah. Shaykh Mehmet Effendi, how beautiful it is to be a servant of Allah. How beautiful it is to serve Allah. How beautiful it is to be filled with love & longing!

What can we do with dunya’s mountains, hills? What can we do with its oceans? What we want is our hearts to be filled with His love & longing. May we run to serve our Lord with the love of servanthood. This is what we want. Do you have this? You don’t. You are running after the soil of this earth. Don’t run after it. Don’t run after gold and silver. Don’t run after women, don’t run after men. Don’t run after palaces. Don’t run after any of the earthly things. They are all things of no value. They are all of no value. What is valuable is the love of the Habib. Carry the love of Allah’s beloved one. That is the real merit. What is dunya? It is WC. What do the people in dunya do? They fill the WC. What is it that they do? They eat, drink and fill the WC. O Man! Was that your real doing? Was eating, drinking and filling the WC your real doing? Shame on you. Shame on you. The ego imprisons man and our spirituality pulls us up. May Allah grant us spirituality, son. Instill it, give it and don’t fear. Fatiha.

Read for me, Shaykh Mehmet. Read, son. Read.

May we enter the category of angels. Angels don’t have the need to eat or drink. Make dua for me. What can we do? One day we will pass away too. We will leave the dirty dunya. But let us perform our mission. Let us set out on the way of the Habib(sallAllahu alayhi wasalam) of the Lord of Majesty. Let us follow his traces, let us carry his love. Let us carry from his life. Let us be honoured with his honour- of the Habib of Allah. Well done to those who can do it. May Allah increase your love, Shaykh Mehmet Effendi. Send salams.

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

Shaykh al-Akbar, Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi (Qs), Sohbat of the 16th of February, 2014.

Our Allah, created the Most Beautiful. Our Mawla created the most beautiful human. He created our Master (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam). Many thanks. Many thanks. Many thanks. Allah Allah.

Marhaba. Let us say “Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim”. Wa khuliqal insanu dha’ifa. (4:28) (man was created weak) I am weak. We are weak. Mankind is created weak. Madad ya Shah-e Mardan. May we gain strength from your beautiful words. O Shah-e Mardan. The world would be demolished if he should kick it. Hadrat Shah-e Mardan has that much power. If he kicks the world like this, Shah-e Mardan would cast it away. We are weak servants. Weak servants. We can only find strength and power if we follow those holy people.

Marhaba. Welcome O yaran (friends of) Shah-e Mardan. “annal quwwata Lillahi jami’a”(2:165) (all might belongs to Allah alone) Allah Almighty. Allah Almighty’s power and capability… it cannot be calculated. Do not go there. Say “Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim”. You may gain power, you may gain grandeur. You may gain farasa (wisdom) You may gain nur (light). Let us wear those ourselves. Let us wear light. My son, let us wear light. Light is in the sky. Do not search for light on earth. Light descends from the sky. May Allah not deprive us of His Light. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa Lillahi l-hamd.

How beautiful. O yaran Shah-e Merdan – those who listen to Shah-e Merdan and who love him. Love him. There is strength in love. There is strength in love. Love. Let us love. Who am I to love? Here you go, I will love Shah-e Merdan. If the holy one who rides the Kuhaylan (noble Arabian horse) whips it like this, it just touches the Kuheylan, it would go around the world nine times. This is Shah-e Merdan. You see. You see. Follow his way, my son. Let us follow their way. We will find comfort, we will find power. We will find power.

Why do we want power? What do we want power for? Why are we going to ask for power? My Lord, we want power to follow the way of those who show us the ways to the servanthood to our Lord. Let us not get weak. Let us not get weak. Weakness is for satan. The human who is mukarram (honored) is not weak. Wa laqad karramna bani adama.(17:70) “We have honored the children of Adam) May He dress us too. Let us dress from that holy light. Let us get dressed, Allah Allah. All thanks and glory be to our Mawla who made us from the ummah of that Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam). All thanks and glory. We are weak. Qawwi dha’fi fi ridak. Man is weak. However, we find strength through the consent of Almighty Mawla We can go up to the skies too. We can take a trip in the Universe. Qawwi dha’fi fi ridak With your consent O our Lord.

Give us strength. May we not stay weak. There is none who is weak in Your presence. It cannot be found through eating and drinking. O our Lord, our Subhan, our Sultan. You sent us Your Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam) that no other exists with his strength. No other exists with his grandeur, his closeness, the closeness he has with Allah Almighty – nobody has. Who has the eyes with the strength to look at Janabul Rabbul izza? It cannot be with just anybody. May He give us as well. We want light. We want light. We do not want fire. Do not go after the fire. Go after the light my son. Allahu Allah Allahu Rabbi. Ma li siwahu. illa Hu. Satan made man confused. He fell in such a crowd that man forgot his humanity. He does not know what to do. O Shah-e Merdan, O those who follow the way where your holy foot stepped. There is light for them, not fire. There is familiarity for them, not distance. Closeness is for them, the closeness of the skies. For them is the closeness of His Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam).

Do not look for eating and drinking! Animals also look for eating and drinking. It has no benefit. Marhaba O my son, Sheikh Muhammad. May our hearts open up. May our hearts open up. May we be joyful. May we be refreshed. What did our Lord grant us? O yaran Shah-e Merdan. Friends of Shah-e Merdan. Be with them. You may find the way. You may find the way of heavens. Do not look for the ways of dunya (the world). Search for qurbiyah (intimacy). Intimacy. Search for the closeness of the Sultan of the Sky. Search for His Presence. May you open up with that. May you be lit with that light. May you not stay in the class of animals Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa Lillahi l-hamd.

Our Ummuhan Sultan is supporting us. May Allah increase her station. May we also be granted to go after her holy way. Allah Allah. These people are not searching for the way of heaven. They are searching for the way of the filthy world. What is there? What is in the filthy world? Search for the ways of the sky. If so say, Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Many thanks. We may find comfort. We may find contentment. May our inside and ouside be at ease, and find spaciousness, find light, and may find a way to heaven. Allah Allah. Subhan Allah Sultan Allah. The Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam), Master of the Universe, is Habibullah. Search for a way to him. You may find all. May you find all. Do not sink and get stuck in the bad world. Allahu Allah. Allahu Allah.

May He give strength to our body. The holy ones give. It would not befit them to not give. Ask for strength, ask for spiritual power. MashaAllah this son of mine has grandeur. He has grandeur. May Allah increase his grandeur. May his station also increase. The grandeur of people who look for the heavens increases. The characteristic of those who look for earth become animal characteristics. Throw away the animal characteristics. May you wear from the holy light of heaven. This is the thing to do. What is other than this? Here, if people were people they would not kill each other. This is not humanity. This is not humanity. A human, human: there is an apparent man, and also an Insan-e Kamil (Perfect Man). Try and walk to the station of perfection.

Allah Jalla Jalalahu, showed ways to that Habib-e Kibriya of His. “May My servants come to Me. May you look for Me. The one who wants to look for Me may look at you O My Habib Mustafa (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam). The mirror of the Universe is with you. O Habib, the one who looks at you will see Me. May they look at you. O yaran Shah-e Merdan. Fatiha.

May the weight of the world be lifted from us. May we be lightened. May we be light. Because the heavens, the sky does not carry heaviness. The sky looks for people who are light, who are noorani (lit) who are roohani (spiritual). O yaran Shah-e Merdan. May they show way. They may show.

Slowly, slowly. The ways will open up for you Sheikh Mehmed my son. When it opens, walk. Make way. Show the way. Show way. May our Lord not separate us from His door, from the door of His beloved Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam). Comfort is with him, ease is with him, spaciousness is with him, and joy is with him. Ya Rabbi, You know. We are Your weak servants. Forgive us my Allah. Fatiha.

May Allah be pleased with you. May your hand be kissed. It is not clear what he is. (Talking about ‘Green Shiekh’ Sa’aduddin) He takes my burden. He takes. He takes. That is why he comes once in a while. The faqir is the guardian of the maqam of Prophet Musa. I like him. I like him. (Green Sh) Does he make Zikr? How? Loudly. Allah Allah. Nobody knows what servants Allah has. Uh there, I like him. I like him. He likes this too. He likes this one too. He (Green Sh) takes our burden my son.
