Life-is-for-testing-1

Why did Allah Azza wa Jalla send people to this world? This world is a testing place. People don’t understand this. They think when they come to this world, all their wishes will be fulfilled, everything will go as they like. With crying, complaining, and by force they want to turn this world into paradise. No, it does not go according to your wishes. What Allah wills, happens. Allah sent human beings into this world, so that they work for their akhirah, make their akhirah prosperous. If heaven was on earth people would not be tested.

Human beings do not want to obey Allah’s orders. In the first place ego, shaitan, desires, shaitans around us hinder us. They don’t let man free. People either complain about their father, their brothers, their husbands, their neighbours, so there is always a reason for complaining. It is the cause of unhappiness. But Allah Azza wa Jalla created this world like this. In this world if you are happy with your husband, you complain about your neighbour. If you are happy with your neighbour you complain about your father or brother. So, do not search for comfort in this world.

How will you be peaceful? You have to accept. There might be small things – don’t complain about them. If they were gone, other things would happen, there would be another kind of unhappiness. Be happy with the small things. Say: “Thanks to Allah I have these problems. If not, there might be other things we cannot carry.” So, these need to be. In this world, Allah gave Adam, alaihi s-salam, 40 years of sadness rain. Adam, alaihi s-salam, cried for 40 years, laughed for just 1 year. So, since this world was created, it is like this. But shukur liLllah if that 1 year is at ease you forget everything. You forget sadness, you forget all. You will not object to them. The more you object, the worse it gets. The more you object, worse things are happening. For this reason, as we said, submit to small tests. Even if you have a complaint you can complain to yourself.

But there are some people, addicted people, may Allah not make us from them, troubles are attracted to them like magnets. There are such people. You see this year he broke his leg, next year he had an accident, the other year his house was burnt, this and that happened. Throughout their lives they are like this. Thank Allah you are not one of them. May Allah protect us. We carry on with small things – enough! So, as we said do not search for heaven on earth. You can change your world into heaven, if you accept the small things. If not these, we will have bigger problems. If you submit, you can find heavenly peace in this world. Otherwise complaining, leave that aside.

Now people they forget these small things. They have left their own issues and they try to rule the world, the country. They want everything according to their ambitions, according to their expectations. They can never find peace in this life. Accept everything, you will find peace.

Allah created human being and put them in earth, and not earth not paradise. It must be something not good with everybody, nobody have perfection, all what he want he got in this life or in earth. Because Allah Azza wa Jalla make this earth life for test. It must be that everybody have something he’s not happy with this and this is, it is a test. But you must be, if you have small problems you must be happy with this. Because, this problem, you can deal with this. But if you don’t have this, Allah give you another kind, a new thing you cannot carry. If you are not happy with that, also, they giving you another thing.

So in this life, you don’t see anybody he get everything what he want. Only, who get paradise in this life, the AwliyaAllah, because also they have, they are carrying very more than other people. But they are happy with this because it is coming from Allah and we are happy with what Allah send us. So they’ll be happy. But other people, even very small thing they’re crying, they are shouting, they are making trouble. You cannot change. If you change, Allah send more different problem. Each time you want to finish from problem, Allah send other, so don’t complain from this small thing. Don’t complain from wife, from husband, from mother, father – it is your very near people, very close, and you cannot change them. Only, you must accept people how they are. Many people, they are complaining: “My father is angry. My mother she is angry. He is doing this, doing that.” You cannot change. You must be patient and you accept him as he is. If one he changing, maybe become worse.

Everything like this. Don’t think in this life you will find somebody he get everything what you want. President, no. Kings, no. Queens, no. Nobody! Everybody, Allah create them in this life, they must be, have something, some problem for them. But, there is one kind of people, Allah not make us like them – we cannot carry. These people they are, “muptela”, we call them – addicted. They are from beginning of their life until their death, this trouble, then that accident. Everything, you can find in these people. Like lightening, thunder, coming on this iron.”Bala” (trouble) coming on them like this. This is also difficult for people. But there is people like this and we can see some of them. They are happy also but many of them of course, they cannot carry. But there is people also like this.

Allah not make us from them, we cannot carry. Only daily, small problems – enough. Without this, not life. You must be angel but when you are human being – everybody from human being have some problem and Mashayikh and tariqa, Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam), teaching us to deal with this problem. Patient and accept this coming from Allah. Allah, we are accept this, don’t make it more than this. We make praying and du’a.

Everything Is Counted

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim
Sultan Mawlana Sheikh Mehmet Adil Al-Haqqani (QS), Sohbat of the 21st of June, Ramadan 2015, Lefke-Cyprus

Tariqatuna s-sohbah, wa l-khayru fi jam’iyyah. Audhu billahi min ash-shaytani r-rajim. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. “Wa kullu shayin indahu bimiqdarin” (13:8) Allah Azza wa Jalla is saying in Qur’an that everything has its measure and scale.

Allah Azza wa Jalla has put a measure for everything. He indicated what things to do and He has said what things should not be done. Things to be done are goodness – worship and all good things. He orders to do good to everyone. Do good to everyone who deserves it because goodness cannot be done to some people. You can’t help someone who is an enemy to Islam and Muslims. You can give him advice but only as a help. Otherwise, it can’t be. It’s not good to treat your ego well as well. Ego is something, which always needs to be crushed. If you do good to it, it will ride you immediately. If you help an oppressor, you will oppress the oppressed even more.

However, our Prophet(sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) said to help your brother even if he’s an oppressor or oppressed. Sahabas asked “How shall we help an oppressor?” He said “Give him advice so that he gives up what he does. If he stops his oppression, you will have helped him. You will have done the biggest help.” Because if it is left until Qiyama and the right of that person [of his victim] remains on him, he will be in a bad situation.

Everything is shown. Allah Azza wa Jalla said and showed everything, halal and haram. And there are things in between some people have doubts about. Those are not important. For the things not accounted Allah will give according to the intentions of people. But don’t be with people who are against Muslims. What they’ll have is Allah’s punishment. Allah’s punishment will come to you too. “Wala tarkanu ila lladhina dhalamu fatamassakumu n-naru”(11:113) (And incline not toward those who do wrong, lest the Fire touch you) Beware not to be with them. Otherwise, you will burn too, badness will come to you too. And may Allah protect, whatever your intention is, if being against Muslims – if it’s clear that there is a movement against Islam and Muslims and you support it and you are with them, then you will suffer both in dunya and have punishment in akhirah. Pay attention, don’t be with oppressors. Be with Muslims, with Ahl as-sunnah wa l-jama’ah.

Ahl as-sunnah wa l-jama’ah is clear. We are saying here, imams of four madhhabs are Ahl as- sunnah wa l-jama’ah. There are imams of belief, Imam Ash’ari and Imam Maturidi Hz. Who follow them are Ahl as-sunnah wa l-jama’ah. Others are not ahl as-sunnah wa l-jama’ah. Don’t be with them because they are oppressors. They are shedding the blood of Muslims. They’re not saying Allah created. They are such people. Their belief is wrong, actions are wrong. They are wrong themselves. And they have all dirt. Beware not to be with them. Ramadan Sharif is the month of advice. And we are advising so from here.

There are many people who are out of right ways. They are deceiving people and showing Ahl as-sunnah wa l-jama’ah as mushrik. Whereas, we are following the way shown by our Prophet(sallAllahu alayhi wasallam). We are walking on the beautiful path of our fathers and grandfathers which came from our Prophet(sallAllahu alayhi wasallam). The rest just [recently] appeared. They brought up new things every time. They are the people of bida’t and depravity/misguided. Who follow them will be vanquished. There are newly brought up [immature] children who don’t know about religion and faith. Their grandfather is shaitan. Sheikh Effendi used to call the television a shaitan box. Now this internet has become shaitan multiplied, shaitan’s grandfather. Someone shows up from there and misguides children. They become rebellious against their parents. Then they lose their lives, property and akhirah. Who are next to them? – those people who don’t like sahabas are the same.

Ahl as-sunnah wa l-jama’ah is now in between, being hit from both sides. Allah is with us. We won’t be harmed, we are patient with them and we will be rewarded by Allah. Nothing goes uncounted in akhirah. What the others have done is not uncounted also, they will be accountable for what they do.

Allah Azza wa Jalla, He put. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim “wa kullu shay’in ‘indahu bimiqdarin” (13:8). He said in Qur’an, everything it is counting, counted. What you do, what you must do, what you must not do, what they are good, what they’re bad, what is worshipping – all it is shown by Allah Azza wa Jalla and by His Order, and shown by Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) and Sahaba, and tariqa Imam Mashaykh and Imam of Mazahib. We have four Mazhab who are following Ahl as-sunnah wa jama’ah and to believe leader, Imam – Who are following this, they are following right way. Who are going out from this way, they are not from Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam). They’re party of who, said Prophet(sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) [about them that] they’re going to hell.

It is shown what, for whom you must do good thing, for who you must be merciful. You must be merciful for your Muslim brothers. If you see him in right way, you must be happy. If you are see him in wrong you must tell him, advise him and you be done for him the best. Because Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) said you must help your Muslim brother, if he is oppressor or oppressed. Sahaba said: “How if is oppressing, how we can help him?” You can help to tell him, you are in, doing against Islam and you must be stop this what you are doing. When he is stopping, you make for him the best thing he can take, get from this dunya. Because, you make him to be in right way again and to not be, take sin for Last Day.

And we are, if people Muslim they are helping against Islam, they are not in right way. Because, whole world now, against Islam, especially against Ahl as-sunnah wa l-jama’ah. Ahl as-sunnah wa l-jama’ah, they are peaceful, merciful people but from everywhere, surrounded by hate, hatred and oppression and trick and trap, everything they are wanting to finish this. But Alhamdulillah we are – Allah with us and we are not afraid from anything, because when everything done for Ahl as-sunnah, we been oppressing, they are counting they will reward for this, but for other people who are doing this, they are against Allah and they will be punished.

Especially now, there is, shaytan it was before small, now getting more stronger because last days of dunya now. Mawlana, many time he was saying for television, it is shaytan box, shaytan box. Now, when you see this internet and other thing it is look like small baby shaytan now. Huge, giant shaytan now – this internet. From everything they are taking children, young, old, very old they are making to make them go out of right way, very easily. From everything – to killing people, to do bad thing, to using bad habit, to what you cannot imagine, not what you imagine. What you cannot imagine, it is in this now.

Allah keep us safe from this and keep our children and all brothers Ahl as-sunnah wa l- jama’ah to be in safety and to meet inshaAllah sayyidina l-Mahdi soon we are waiting inshaAllah. It is look like this because it is whole world against Islam, against Muslim and when Muslim, especially Ahl as-sunnah, something happen to them, whole world, they are flying from happiness. They are very happy to do, to be something bad for Muslim and it is time for Sayyidina l-Mahdi (as) to come to clean all this world, from this bad people and giant shaytan inshallah

The Power Of Belief

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

Audhu billahi min ash-shaytani r-rajim. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. As-salatu wa s- salamu ala Rasulina Muhammadin Sayyidi l-awwalina wa l-akhirin. Madad ya RasulAllah, madad ya Sadati Ashabi Rasulillah, madad ya Mashaykhina dastur. Madad ya Shaykh Abdullah Faizi d-Daghistani, Shaykh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani. Tariqatuna s-sohbah, wa l-khayru fi jam’iyyah. Audhu billahi min ash-shaytani r-rajim.

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. “Ya ayyuha lladhina amanu aminu” (4:136) Allah Azza wa Jalla says: “O you who believe, believe…” (4:136) Because belief is not an easy thing. Ego and shaitan does not want belief. Belief, is the highest station, the station of belief. That’s why He says “O you who believe, believe…” Quranic Verse. You have to strengthen your belief each moment. Everyday you have to strengthen your belief. Belief means to believe in the unseen. Allah Azza wa Jalla sent the most trustworthy among His servants Muhammadu l-Amin – our Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam), so that he teaches us belief. How will you believe in the unseen? If somebody is trustworthy, then you believe him. Our Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) gave that belief to sahabas(companions). He gave it to their hearts. With the weight of that belief, their mothers, their fathers were not more on the scale than their belief. They left their families, their mothers, their fathers and went where the belief was. Our Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) was everything to them. That strong belief became a means to give the belief to the Ummah of Muhammad(sallAllahu alayhi wasallam).

There are a lot of verses, “O Arabs do not say ‘we are believers’, say ‘we became Muslims’.” (49:14) Being Muslim is different, belief is different. Whoever takes shahadah is Muslim. But believer he who truly believes, he has strong belief. Muslims, Allah Azza wa Jalla gave everyone a different station. The highest station is station of belief. But the Muslim also must believe in certain things – Allah, Prophet, Angels, Day of Judgment, Resurrection, you know those things. To believe in that, is belief for everyone. But more than that you have to testify to it in words. Real belief comes from the heart. Someone who has reached that belief, nothing affects him. His belief is strong. But the others sometimes they have belief (iman), sometimes not. Sometimes they pray, sometimes they fast, sometimes they don’t fast. They are the weakest ones, they are called ad’afu l-iman.

Real belief as we said is the belief that comes from our Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam). It came from the Sahabas, then it came from mashaykhs. Mashaykhs they plant that belief in the hearts. With the power of that belief Mawlana brought hundreds of thousands and millions of people to the way of Allah. That is the power of belief. That power of belief nothing else has that power – not bombs, nor arms, nothing. When having that belief, nothing can stand in front of it. It is very important.

Allah Azza wa Jalla saying in ayat-ul karima. Audhu billahi min ash-shaitani rajim. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. “Ya ayyuha lladhina amanu aminu”(4:136) What meaning? “O believer, believe.” Because belief, it is the most high thing for human being – to believe what Allah send and what Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) said. There is ayat also saying “O Arabs, don’t say “We are believers”. Only say “We are Muslim”.” (49:14) Because when you are saying kalima shahada, you become Muslim. Everybody becomes Muslim. But to be, to go up high for iman, belief, it is need many things. You must fight your ego, you must fight shaitan. Every day you… One second you cannot be rest without make your ego to be not rest. If you are rest, ego coming on you, make your iman weak. But Allah Azza wa Jalla, He give rank for Islam, the high rank iman.

Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam), he is most trustful. Because how people they can trust for man? Because he was never lying, never doing wrong thing, never doing any bad thing. So people trusting and accepting what he said. And he put this iman in heart of his sahaba, and sahaba for other ummah until now coming. But it is weak and strong. And some of them by their idea they are going. This is not iman, just they are Muslim. But who are giving iman, strong iman? Mashaykh like Mawlana Sheikh. With his iman, he.. thousands, ten thousands, hundred thousands, millions, they believe with him. And they become to this nice way, way of Allah. This is power of iman or belief.

Power of belief, no nothing can stop in front of it. No arm, no bomb, no weapon, nothing stronger than belief. This belief changing from bad end, miserable end, and for to be happy and blessed and lightening. By arms [weapons] you cannot do this. Only you destroy. But with belief you can give life and light and beauty for human being. And this is mission of tariqat and Mashaykh. They are not coming to make people, to kill people, to destroy anything. No, they are coming to build. What they building? The iman, belief in your heart. When it is happened this, everything it will be better for you and for your community, for your… Where you are going, coming, everybody they become benefit from this iman, belief.

Wa min Allahi t-tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
