Who is The Expert?

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim

O madad, Ya Sultanu l-Anbiya. Now we are coming to speak something in’sha Allah, to Salafi ulamas. What is mission of ulama? Their mission must be to follow the Seal of Prophets’ way. They must try to follow right path that the Seal of Prophets (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam) showing us. To go on it. What was the Seal of Prophets’ teaching method? Holy Quran saying, asta’idh biLlah,

inna arsalnaka shahidan wa mubashshiran wa nazira

We have sent you as witness and bringer of good tidings and warner (33:45).

It is like sun in skies. So clear. This is an endless ocean, but, it is only to show majesty and might and most glory belongs to the Creator. But they are speaking only these 3, 4 words? No. That is according our understanding level.

wada’iyan ila Allahi bi-idhnihi wasirajan munira

And one who invites to Allah , by His permission, and an illuminating lamp (33:46).

Subhan Allahi l-Alliyi l-Azim, Allahu Akbar. Eh, that holy verse showing to all mankind real mission as well as real being of the Seal of Prophets (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam). You must use your minds. Christian brothers, Jewish brothers, you must use your mentality and your wisdom. You know that you are Book-given people. Old Testament for the Children of Isra’il, New Testament through Jesus Christ, for the Children of Isra’il also. Saying, Allah Almighty speaking to Sayyidina Musa, peace be upon him, making clear the prophecy and messenger-hood of Moses to Children of Isra’il.

Then time going on. Today is not a copy from yesterday, as well tomorrow, not going to be a photocopy from today. Everyday there are new appearances for everything. You also, you are not same one as yesterday. And tomorrow you are not going to be as you are now, here, to be tomorrow, same, no. Allahu Akbar, Azamatu liLlah. All religions based on tazimu l-haqq, glorifying the Creator. Therefore everyday there is another appearance and through that appearance coming another glorifying for the Lord of Creation. You must understand.

O Salafi ulamas, open your ears to hear and to understand. The conditions from the time of Moses just changed to the time of Jesus Christ. And, the time of the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam everything just changed. Understanding now we are living in a time that steps of people not going endlessly because you know, O Salafi ulamas, hilal, crescent of Ramadan, first night is a very thin crescent. And then, second night is going to be more. Third, fourth, until 15th of Ramadan or 15th of any other month you are looking that it is a full moon with a perfect appearance.

From Adam alaihi salam who was declaring to people. Five pages or one page was enough for his sons. Then when he is passing, coming on behalf of him, his son Seth alaihi salam. And that Nur, heavenly light growing and granted to Seth alaihi salam. More than ten pages coming for people living on Earth. Then coming others, coming, coming, and people getting more and more and more. They are in need. They were needy for a full moon and through every prophet heavenly lights going to be granted to people a little bit more, a little bit more, more, more and reaching to Moses. In his time there is a crescent, perhaps it was half crescent. It was enough.

Then Allah Almighty sending Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ coming with another heavenly light and he was trying to spread that Nur through living people with miracles. And his miracles were so powerful. For what? Because he was mubashshir (bearer of good tidings). He was giving good tidings for the coming of the Seal of Prophets (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam). Therefore he was granted such strong miracles. For a person with a perfect understanding it is impossible to refuse because he was giving good tidings for the last one, for a best one, for the perfect one.

And Children of Isra’il they can’t carry this. They can’t carry, even the bearer of good tidings, mubashshir. ‘Ey,’ saying, ‘we are not accepting you’. And they did what is the worst, they tried to take away mubashshir, who is giving good tidings of full moon. They tried to take him away. We are not saying to kill, asking to take him away. May take him through his physical being but they can’t touch his real being. Good-tiding-giver for the last one. That is the reason that the Children of Isra’il were asking Moses to be the last one for everyone. Even not for everyone, to be only for the Children of Isra’il.

And the Lord of Heavens asking to grant from His divine, heavenly grants to all nations. Why you are trying to prevent it? Can’t be. And they did their worst for Jesus Christ. And Jesus Christ also, Allah Almighty taking him up. Disappeared. But, amusing themselves, they are bringing cross, putting one person on it, and saying ‘we killed him, now just finished’. Astaghfirullah. It is a scenario. No nation may make a scenario like Children of Isra’il. Up to today, first class.

Sayyidina Moses, peace be upon him, very angry with them, so angry. ‘Don’t put anything of your understandings through Revelation. That coming to me from heavens. Why you are doing that? I am leaving you and going away!’ Taking them to Sahara desert. Because Moses, peace be upon him, his teachings were not enough (for) coming generations. When coming the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam, coming as a full moon. And full moon is perfect form. You can’t imagine after a full moon another perfect form.

Therefore now, if all nations may continue to eternity that full moon is enough for everyone. No need to look this, to look that. Our listeners use your mentality a little bit. You must know that everyone asking to learn something. And you must ask as Allah Almighty saying:

fas-al bihi khabira

Ask then about Him of any acquainted (with such things) (25:59).

O our Salafi ulamas, fas-al bihi khabira, ayatu l-karima or kalam un-nas? Holy verse or not? As you claim we are Salafi ulamas, give to me, ishrah-li, give more than explanation, give a commentary about that, fas-al bihi khabira. To whom Allah Almighty addressing? Say, you are ulamas, fas-al bihi khabira. These words are like oceans. That everyone must ask. For what they must ask? For whom they must ask? For which purpose they must ask? These are important three words. One holy verse, say? I am knowing nothing but you are claiming you are Salafi ulamas, say? Fas-al, to whom addressing Allah Almighty? To whom? Say? To Rasulullah? Rasulullah, Allah Almighty,

allama l-Quran

Taught the Quran (55:2)

allamahu l-bayan

Taught him eloquence (55:4).

He is Rasul thaqalayn (of the two weighty things), the Seal of Prophets. That address, addressing whom? Say? Fas-al, this address, addressing whom? Say? You are saying we are ulamas, I am asking. Fas-al, to whom addressing Holy Quran? Say? Doctors of Sharia, say? Ulamas of Azhar, fas-al, to whom? Allah Almighty is sending that holy verse fas-al bihi, that ‘bihi’ is another ocean. Subhanallah, Subhanallah. The question you must ask for everything that you need, is to someone who knows beginning and ending. Khabir. Khabir can’t be naqis (deficient). Khabir must be kamil, perfect. Fas-al bihi khabira, have you found him?

O Salafi ulamas, do you think that you looked for someone who is ‘khabir’? Expert? Have you found an expert? And you asked about this holy verse? For everything, fas-al bihi. What does it mean ‘bihi’? You may ask because everything in existence, it is clear. If you are looking and finding key, you may enter and you may know. But important, to find who is carrying that key. Khabir, that is that one, who carrying key for opening to you khaza’in, hidden treasures.

And say that ‘we know nothing’. And I am a humble servant advising you to find a ‘khabir’, expert. And ask, first ask for me. I am nothing. Ask for me also first, then, if you like, accept, or you may refuse. It is not important. Ask first that person. ‘Everyday saying so many things, mostly we are not understanding’. Ey, if you are not understanding, must be someone that can understand You must ask. I am saying to Salafi ulamas. Fas-al, ask for me, for those people who have a power for understanding and showing to you the personalities of people.

May Allah forgive us, astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah. Huuu.. Fatiha.

(Sohbat excerpt, July 7, 2010)


Where Is Our Grave?

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim


Ad-dinu nasiha. Religion is advice. It is a ghanimah/spoils for Man. Angels greet us with Salam. O Ahbab who are on the way of Shah Mardan, yaran-u Shah Mardan – Welcome to this day of ours. May this day of ours be beautiful for us, may it be beautiful for you. May it not bring sorrows or despair. May our day come filled with goodness. May we receive from the goods of our day that which is filled with goodness. How beautiful. O Ya Rabbi. We are not like fourlegged animals. Dunya is a hostel for them too but dunya is not a hostel for Man like it is for animals. Dunya is a hostel. There are who land and who leave.

Go ahead O Shah Mardan. O Lion of Allah’s way. May you fill us with faith. May you fill us with honour. May you fill us with loads of faith in the Presence of Rabbu-l Izzat. What is it that we ask for in dunya? It is faith. May we come with faith & leave with faith. May we not come for the dirty dunya. But shaytan made the people confused and says “Ask for the dirty dunya no matter what!” No, don’t run after the dirty dunya. You will be dirty. Run after the good ones and you will be good. You will be good. What is it that is asked from us? Ad-Dinu nasiha; religion is advice. There is one matter that is requested from us, about which the glorious Prophet of the End of Times informed us from Rabbu-l Izzat: Be good, be beautiful. Be nice. Don’t dive into the dunya filth. A barn is not suitable for you. Palaces are what are suitable for you. Kun fayakun! Palaces appear! Allah Almighty’s order immediately happens.

Know Allah, say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. May we remember the Name of Allah first. We should say the Name of our Lord before anything else. May we remember the Name of Allah first. You have no honour, no value unless you say the honored Name of Allahu Dhu-l Jalal. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. May we also take naseeb and ihsan from your way and may our faces become beautiful. May we not be ugly. The Prophet of the End of Times said: “Ahsinu wujuhakum”, make your faces beautiful. What makes the face of Man beautiful is not make-up. A beauty comes to Man- descending from Heavens and he becomes sweet. O Man! Be beautiful. This is the teaching of the Prophets: O Man, be beautiful. Don’t be ugly. On the contrary, be beautiful, says Allah Almighty. Allahu Jamilun, Allah Almighty is the most beautiful. Allah Almighty created His Habib and granted him beauty. What He (swt) asks from us is “Be beautiful, be nice”.

Ad-dinu nasiha. Religion is advice. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Man ashara qawman, la ‘arba’ina yawman sara minhum. If a people spend 40 days together with another people, they become from them. If they are together with donkeys for 40 days, they become donkeys. If they are together with a Sultan for 40 days, they become Sultans. Allah dressed on us the dress of sultanate. It is such a dress, such an honour /iftikhar dress that shaytan got jealous of it. It said, “It would be more suitable for me”. The word came from above: “I granted you what is suitable for you. You can’t interfere with what I grant him – you can’t interfere with what I grant the Children of Adam. I granted you what I granted you. You can’t interfere with Me!” Jalla Jalaluhu. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Janabu Rabbu-l Izzat rebuked shaytan. He (swt) said “You can’t interfere. You can’t decide what I grant or don’t grant. I granted you what I granted you but I didn’t grant you what I granted Adam”. Allahu Akbar!

Go ahead O Shah Mardan. O our Lord- our Subhan, our Sultan. You created Your Habib (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam) beautiful. Who love Your Habib are also beautiful, who go on his way are also beautiful. Who have his morals are also beautiful. They are the people of paradise. Ad-dinu nasiha, religion is advice. Say O mankind, who are you? Who are you? You are the Hazrat Insan. Hazrat Insan – Allah Almighty dressed him with a rank. Angels said “Dress this attribute on us”. Allah Almighty said “No. “This is unique to Adam. What I granted to you and to Adam is different. “There is the dress of honour/iftikhar I dressed on Adam. He is My Caliph. “He is well-respected. There can’t be anyone “higher than the Children of Adam. “I granted this rank to him and granted you what I granted you but you can’t ask Me for what I granted Adam”.

O Lord, You made us beautiful. We wish we stayed beautiful. Stay alert! There are so many things- Rabbu-l Izzat, Janab-i Haqq, Jalla Jalaluhu says “I didn’t grant anyone what I granted the Children of Adam”. Be proud, honoured O Man! Be happy with this rank Allah Almighty granted us. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Your Yaran are your admirers- they are admirers of the Nur on your face, they are admirers of the wisdom in your words. Shukur Janab Allah.

Insan! Prophet Adam is who represents Allahu Dhu-l Jalal. Why does he represent Allahu Dhu-l Jalal? Because Hazrat Nabi (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam), who is the Prophet of the End of Times, represents Him. “I granted the Children of Adam honour for the honour of the Prophet of the End of Times”. Listen O yaran Shah Mardan. Let us say O yaran, Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Always say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim and there will be no power that can stop you, no power that can beat you. There is no honour that can reach your honour. Let us say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Grant us strength O our Mawla. Grant us power O our Mawla and we open up and are filled with love & enthusiasm. Shah Mardan’s way is the way of enthusiasm. Who is filled with love & enthusiasm is the Prophet Hz. It comes to us from him. Be Man, don’t be animal. Be beautiful; don’t be ugly. This is what Allah Almighty asks from us. But shaytan says, on the contrary, “Be ugly”. How can a person be ugly? He gets ugly with his actions. He is getting ugly according to what he does, you can’t even look at his face. You can’t look at shaytan’s face.

“Be beautiful” says the order from Heavens. O Children of Adam, all the Prophets that came from East to West told their nations “Be beautiful, don’t be ugly”. There is such a beauty that… Prophet Solomon- alaihi s-salam, ‘ala nabina alaihi s-salatu wa s-salam, wrote a letter and said: “‘Innahu Min Sulaymana Wa ‘Innahu Bismi Llahi r-Rahmani r-Rahimi” (27:30). The earth trembled. Balqis’s golden throne shook and collapsed. O Man, your virtue and rank cannot be finished by writing or speaking of it. O glorious Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam), who was told in the Divine Presence of Allah, “Put your feet on the ‘Arsh, O My Habib!” HabibuLlah asked for this honour for his Nation too, “May my Nation walk the path which I walk. May they not walk the path on which shaytan sets foot”. O our Lord- our Subhan, our Sultan. Kulluha Adab – All is Adab. The Holy Quran, Shaykh Mehmet Effendi, from the beginning to its end is filled with wisdom, with beauties, with honour. Recite it and your honour increases.


Say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Let us say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Go ahead O Shah Mardan, your yaran are your admirers. How beautiful it is to be from your yaran. Be nice. Be beautiful. Walk the path of beautiful ones. Who is the beautiful? Who takes Nur from Heavens is the beautiful. Man cannot be beautiful without taking that Nur. Don’t sleep. Open your eyes. Allah granted you eyes to see the beautiful. Allah granted you speech to speak of His Wisdoms. He granted you hands, feet, and a body so that you can perform His servanthood. Don’t escape from His servanthood- don’t escape from the servanthood of Rabbu-l Izzat. O our Lord- our Subhan, our Sultan. Shah Mardan is speaking to us. He is speaking to us, we should open up. We should open up. We should open up.

One day the grave is waiting for us too. However we are not created for the grave. They didn’t create us for grave. Our rank is high. Our grave is above, not inside of the earth. What they bury inside of the earth is the animal attributes. What goes up to the heavens is the Nur Allah granted us, the Ruh. To get the Ruh ready, be dressed with Ruh (spirituality) and then they may call you up. O our Lord. There is Shah Mardan who will teach us our humanity. O yaran Shah Mardan. Let us say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. May the doors of Heaven open. The earth has nothing. Look for what comes down from Heavens. Look for what comes down from Heavens, not what grows up from the earth. Look for what comes down from Heavens. The animals and insects also eat what grows on the earth. You are different. You should know, you should know about yourself. O Children of Adam, O Bani Adam! “Uskun ‘Anta Wa Zawjuka l-Jannata” (2:35) I made the paradise an abode for you, O children of Adam. May you stay in these Paradises”. But shaytan messed it up. It made them expelled from paradise and thrown to this filthy dunya.

O our Lord! The dress of iftikhar, the dress of izzu sharaf (honour) was dressed on mankind. Don’t throw it away! That dress you are dressed with was dressed on you when you were leaving paradise. No one can take away from you that dress- that dress of honour, that dress of iftikhar. Not only one but even a thousand shaytans can’t take it. O our Lord! May You grant us strength. May You grant us power and we remember You. We stand in Your Way. May our love & enthusiasm increase. May You send us the Shah Mardan who will defeat the ones that corrupt Your way. May You send us the Sultans who will please Your Habib. May our external power increase. May our internal power increase also. Whatever the unbelievers, who oppose Islam invented, is all trash. Leave them & look to the power that will come down from Heavens. Find the beauty from Heavens. Beauty comes down from Heavens. Ugliness comes from earth. Real beauty comes down from Heavens. May we dress in the dress of Nur O Lord. O our Lord- You are Subhan, You are Sultan. May You accept us Ya Rabbi. There is no end or limit to Your Grants.

Let us say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. May the doors open for us. May we be told: “As-Salamu alaikum O servants whom Rabbu-l Izzat loves. Welcome to you. You came with barakah, you came with khair”. Go ahead and speak O Shah Mardan. Your yaran are your admirers. How beautiful is your way. Don’t leave that way and fall into a bad way. The bad way belongs to shaytan. Evil things belong to shaytan. “Don’t be shaytan, be angels” was said to mankind. O our Lord! May You grant us strength, power. May You dress us in the dress of majesty. O Lord, may You dress us in the dress of majesty that You dress on Your weak servants. Believers have the dress of majesty. Who doesn’t believe doesn’t have that dress of majesty. We have the dress of majesty which comes from the Sultan. “Dress in it and come to Me” says Allah. “Don’t leave it. I sent for you the dress of honour. Wear it and come to Me. Don’t fall into the filth of dunya”.

You are Subhan, You are Sultan O our Lord. You are Sultan O our Lord For the honour of Your Habib (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam), for the honour of this Ramadan Sharif, may the tyrants, unbelievers, shaytans, get exhausted, be humiliated and fight each other. May the flags of Islam rise. O believers, raise the flag of Islam and a power that cannot be stopped comes to you. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Say this at least 3 times a day. You will be dressed with the dress of majesty. No troubles will come to you. They may dress in the dress of majesty. May you be dressed with a dress from the beauty of Heaven, from the honour of Heaven, which will give you happiness.

Let us say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. O our Lord, we are weak servants. May imdad/help reach us. The imdad of Heavens reaches. Ramadan Sharif has arrived. It is welcome. Yaran of Sardar (commander), may it come with his barakah. O yaran Shah Mardan. May it come with his barakah. May it come with the power, which will defeat, crush shaytan Ya Rabbi. May You make us within that circle of Divine Protection Ya Rabbi. May we open up. May we expand. May we gain power and strength. May we not be a barn keeper. May we be dressed with beauty, may we not be ugly.

Allahu Allah, Allahu Rabbi. Allahu Allah, Allahu Hasbi. If they called with these words, there would be no need to go into the streets and scream. But Man lost his humanity and became only animal attributes. Return to your Lord, don’t go out into the streets. May the Heavenly support that will come down from Heavens reach you. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. As-Salamu alaikum O Hadirun, O yaran Shah Mardan.


We are the Ummah of the Sultanu-l Anbiya (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam). The power and barakah of our Shaykh, who is the Sultanu-l Awliya, is on us. Let us say Huuu. O Shah Mardan, go ahead. Allah bless you.

~ Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi (QS), 8th July, 2013.


The Dress of Ramadan

The following excerpts are from the sohbat ‘The Dress of Ramadan’ by Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi (Qs), 7th July, 2013.

“The addressing from above is Hz Adam, Prophet Adam is Hazrat. Sultans are addressed as Hazrat.”


You are “insan”, Man, but your name is Hz Insan. He (swt) said “Hazrat Adam”. The addressing from above is Hz Adam, Prophet Adam is Hazrat. Sultans are addressed as Hazrat. What is garbage, trash, is not called Hazrat. Animals are not called Hazrat. Hazrat is from the Huzur (Presence)- Hazrat is said for who is dressed with the dress of honour from the Divine Presence, from the Huzuru r-Rabbul Alamin. Others are not called Hazrat.

Come on in O attendees; let us listen to Shah Mardan. How beautifully does he advise. But Men, the people of this time, do not consider the words of Shah Mardan. What do they consider? They consider the words of shaytan. And what does shaytan do? It sets people against each other. It makes them lose their humanity. Shaytan’s whole claim is to pull the humanity out of Man. Since it has become shaytan, it wants the dress of honour, which was dressed on Mankind to be taken from them and it wants them to become a creature that has no honour, no adab, like itself. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. O Ahbab of Shah Mardan, be present in his assembly. His assembly reaches from the East to the West and the knowledge gives you honour in dunya as well as in akhirah. O Man, you are honoured. What is the order for you? “Keep this honour We granted you. O Adam, we dressed you with the dress of honour. Keep that dress of honour because there are those who would take it from you”. They wanted to take it away from Prophet Adam – not take away, but they wanted to steal it.

Here, this is the claim: “Why was Prophet Adam granted this honour and not I?” Allahu Dhu-l Jalal- “Ya’budu man yashau wa ya’ti”. Man yasha’- Allah Almighty grants to whom He likes. It is not as you like. Allahu Dhu-l Jalal for Whose Azamat there is no end, dresses who He likes with the dress of honour and orders: “Protect this dress of honour”. Keep it- this is the instruction of Shah Mardan- stand with majesty. You are dressed with the dress of Majesty. Keep this dress. Don’t be filth! Don’t be trash. Don’t be humiliated. Don’t be shaytan. What you are dressed with is the dress of azamat. The address of “O Adam” is the address of honour. Allahu Dhu-l Jalal told you “O Adam! Usqudu l-Jannat. Enter My Paradise. It is yours”. And shaytan came saying “let me take this honour away from him”. The whole fight is about this. No one has the jealousy shaytan has. “What is my purpose?” says shaytan. “Let me take this honour away from Man because I found myself more worthy. It would have been suitable for me but it was granted to him, not me. And I will not allow it, I will take it from him”.

So, just like this, shaytan declared its goal: My goal is to strip mankind of the dress of honor with which he has been dressed.” How does it strip him? By dressing him with the dress of every kind of trick and evil, it makes him a shaytan like itself. Today’s dunya is full of shaytans. “Yatasabaquna fi sh-sharri”. Is it not so? They compete with each other in evil. How does it do this? By making people enemies to each other with all kinds of things that you can’t even imagine. O Man! Allah Almighty did not create you for useless competition. He (swt) dressed you with an honour dress in His Presence and wants to keep you this way. How beautiful. We should learn. We should learn. ‘Alimu wa ta’allamu. Learn and teach. But they don’t teach it now. What people learn is to be shaytan. But shaytan can’t make a Sultan. Can shaytan be a Sultan? No. Shaytan does not teach people to be Sultans. It wants to steal away his sultan-ness & turn him into a shaytan. Don’t, don’t follow it. You are Man. Shaytan wants to steal the rank you have. Stay firm. This greatest honour is granted to you & shaytan runs after it to take it away.

“May Allah grant us that honour in this holy month. May our Ramadan be mubarak. May our Lord be pleased with us. May His Great Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam) intercede for us.”


For what do you strive? Why do you strive for dunya? What will come to you from dunya? What will come to you from dunya is a few meters for a shroud. This is the destination you will reach – you will be wrapped in a shroud & they will bury you inside a hole. But you are not a being to be buried into a hole. Allahu Akbar! O yaran Shah Mardan, how beautifully is he expressing it. You are not created to dress in a 3 meter shroud & to fill a hole, O heedless Man! Allahu akbaru l-akbar. May salatu s-salam be upon the Master of Creation (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam), and may it be upon Shah Mardan who is trained by him. Listen, don’t fight! O people, listen! There is the addressing of Heavens, it is not a newspaper. The addressing that comes from Heavens is no newspaper.

Go ahead O Shah Mardan- say, go ahead. Say “Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar wa Lillahi l-Hamd.” This is suitable for you. Being a toilet keeper is not suitable for Man. Be beautiful! When he says “Be beautiful”, we are already beautiful. Ahsani taqwim, ahsani taqwim. “Khalaqna Al-‘Insana Fi ‘Ahsani Taqwimin”(95:4) Allah Almighty did not grant the beautiful surra and sirra (outer likeness & inner character) that He dressed on Man to anyone else. Allahu Akbar! Then run after this!

O Shah Mardan, may you send us from the holy ones you trained, those who will teach these people this. May our faces be beautiful. May our work be beautiful. May our end be beautiful. Don’t come to the Sultan with a monkey attribute. “I didn’t create you like this. From where did you bring this ugliness?” “I brought it from dunya”. If Allah Almighty says, “Should it be like this in dunya? Did I create Man to be in such a state?” what will your answer be? You have no answer. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Allah created Man as the most beautiful. Man who is created as the most beautiful has an honour. No one can reach that honour. O our Lord – our Subhan, our Sultan. Go ahead O Shah Mardan, your yaran are your admirers. Don’t read newspapers. Don’t read novels. Don’t read unnecessary things. What should be read? Read Man. Shah Mardan says “Don’t read newspapers, read Man”. Are you reading Man? How can he? Can an animal read Man? No. Shaytan turned people into animals and then it says “read”. “What should we read?” “Read what I make you read”, meaning shaytan makes people read shaytan-ness.

It says “I am shaytan. You also become shaytans like me”. “What will happen then?”. “At that time everything will be under your command”. This is how the people are now. Shaytan corrupted Man who was created clean. It wants to crush him, it wants to throw the honour of Man under its feet. All these nations who follow shaytan run after it, competing to be shaytan. By saying “I will be shaytan”, “No, I will be shaytan” they crush each other. They want to strip away & throw out the dress of sharafat from each other, which is dressed on them. Every Man has an honour, you should keep that honour. You are respected and you should also show respect. If you don’t show respect, your category also is the category of shaytan. Because in dunya there is the Man category & there is the shaytan category and you are then written under the category of shaytan. Keep the servant who is honoured by Allah, honourable so that you are also granted honour. If you don’t keep it, the honour you have is taken away from you and you also get the dirty attribute of shaytan.

As-Salamu alaikum O Listeners, O yaran Shah Mardan. Listen to these beautiful words and appreciate their worth. Appreciate the worth of others also. The rank you are granted is from above, it is not from dunya. O our Lord – our Subhan, our Sultan. May You send us a Sultan who will teach us for the honour of Your Habib. May You send us a Sultan who will defeat shaytan, who will destroy the works of shaytan O Lord. We are helpless, You are the Possessor of Power. For the honour of these holy days, for Ramadan is our most honourable month, we should make an effort to attain to this honour. Every month is granted an honour but the honour dressed on Ramadan is not dressed on any other month. O Shah Mardan, go ahead. The arena is all yours. This arena is for you. Speak to the people. Making mahya (lights) between the minarets – this does not give honour. Maybe it becomes an adornment for the minaret. What we seek is to be dressed with the dress of this holy month, this is what I want.

You want to make mahya? Ok, you may do. But do you adorn yourself also with the candles, with the lights that are put on the minarets? If you don’t, making mahya on the minarets does not bring you any benefit. Be Man so that a Nur from Heavens descends on you also. May a Nur descend and you become Nur. Ramadan is the holy month which comes to make people Nur. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Your yaran are your admirers. Protect us also. May you reach the Divine Mercies that descend from Heavens and may you find the right way. May you become sultan by the end of Ramadan Sharif. Don’t do shameful things, O Man. Keep the honour of this holy month.

Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Your yaran are your admirers. Let us say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Say and receive honour. O Glorious Prophet, may you accept us. O Shah Mardan, may you accept us also. Ya muhawwilal hawli wal ahwal hawwil haalana ila ahsanil hal. Say “O our Lord, may You accept us as a beautiful servant for the honour of this Ramadan Sharif. May our Nur increase, may it not decrease. May You not expel us from Your door, Ya Rabb. “Allahu Allah Allahu Rabbi, Allahu Allah Allahu Hasbi”. Say this and be saved.

It is not suitable for Man- quarrelling & fighting is not suitable. Go ahead O Shah Mardan, what is it that is suitable for them? They run in the streets. Shame on them. Go to the mosques and call “O our Lord. Allahu Allah, Allahu Allah. Allahu Hasbi, Allahu Rabbi. Allahu Rabbi, Allahu Hasbi”. Go to the mosques and say this, and see how the world will be. They fool around in the streets! What good can whoever you elect do? What can you bring out from the trash? There is no jewel around. Jewels are not thrown into the streets. Try to be jewels in the Presence of Allah.

O our Lord, may You dress us also from the barakah of this holy month. May You dress on us the jewels of this holy month for the honour of Your Habib. May we be from the accepted servants in Your Presence. May our heart be Nur and may our grave also be Nur. O our Lord, accept us – accept us for Your servants. May You drive away the ones who make us run away from the servanthood. Is there anyone who says “Allahu Allah, Allahu Rabbi. Allahu Allah, Allahu Hasbi”? No. Who do the ones calling, call to? They call to shaytan. One group shouts from this side and another group from that side. What do you want? They don’t know what they want. Ask for the Rida/Pleasure of Allah, that Allah Almighty dresses you with honour in this holy month.

O our Lord, may You increase our honour. May You make it easy for us to keep the respect of this holy month. Let us mount the animal-ego and ride above the filth of this dunya! Be clean. Mount your ego. Defeat your ego and they’ll accept you. Allah Ya Rabbi. For the honour of Shah Mardan, may his statement to his yaran be accepted and may it be dressed on us also. Allahu Allah, Allahu Rabbi. Allahu Allah, Allahu Hasbi. Don’t fear anything. All honour belongs to you. May Allah grant us that honour in this holy month. May our Ramadan be mubarak. May our Lord be pleased with us. May His Great Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam) intercede for us. Everything is granted, every beauty is granted in this holy month. May it be granted to us also, may we be dressed with it. It descends on Al-Ka’ba Al-Mu’azzama- the dress of Ramadan is dressed on Al- Ka’ba Al-Mu’azzama. May we be dressed from it also. Ask for it. Don’t perform animal actions in the streets. Perform servanthood in the mosques. This is what is asked from you.


According To What You Ask For

The following is an excerpt from the sohbat, ‘According To What You Ask For’ by Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi (Qs).

Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh

Man will really be condemned to suffer the punishment of his heedlessness as long as he is heedless.

Without a doubt, after so many years passing, of course the condition of Muslims has become that of those who are sunk in heedlessness. Man will really be condemned to suffer the punishment of his heedlessness as long as he is heedless. Meaning, the excuse saying, “We were heedless,” will not be accepted for someone who reaches the Divine Presence. Why did you not open your eyes? Did I leave you blind when We gave you the light of faith? Blind is the one who has no light of faith. So that, asta’idhu billah, “Waman kana fee hathihi a’ma fahuwa fil akhirati a’ma” (17:72) says Allah Almighty. He who is blind in this world will be blind in the next world too. This does not mean someone who is blind in his (physical) eyes, will stay blind just as he was blind in this world. Hasha. Maybe Allah Almighty says, He says He will award and grant mercy that He does not show to other servants, to those He has deprived from the light of the two eyes. And He will open their eyes to watch His Beauty, with a first view that is special for them.

All right, but what is the intention there? So that in this world, but also in the hereafter. But its meaning is that the one who has left the heart’s eye in the world, someone who has not opened the heart’s eye with the light of faith. That one he comes like that at Resurrection “Did I not give you the light of faith? Why were you heedless when you were in the world? Why did you not open your eyes? Why are you saying, “I was really heedless”? When I gave you the light of faith. The ones I did not give are different, I gave to you. Why did you become really heedless?” Because 1407 years have passed since, people are tired of moving from taqlid (imitation) to tahqiq (investigation), to haqiqat (truth). And they left that way. Even though Allah Almighty’s order is not to get stuck in imitation, to try and reach truth. Yes.

The Prophet, alaihi s-salatu wa s-salam, said, “If a person does not know himself, he does not know his Lord.”

Why did we come to the world? If it is to eat, drink, and multiply, then animals are also doing it. They don’t do anything else. If you spend your time doing that, you should know your level, your place then. Your place is also that. On the Day of Judgement they will say, “Take this one to the barn too.” Is it not so? This one did not do anything else. This one has no place on this side. Tie them up and pull them to the barn. Meaning – “if this is the aim behind the earthly life in this world what was the use of the mind We gave you? So you never used your mind.” And Allah Almighty says He honored you by clothing you in one of His attributes. And we made you mukarram, We were overly generous with you. So you made Our generosity like dirt. You made it nothing, then your place is the barn. They will say, “Pull, tie, pull that one.” His human form will also be removed. Whichever animal that one represents, every human’s ego represents an animal, that animal’s attribute will overcome and will appear in that form. They will be tied and pulled. He takes them there.

Allah Almighty sent Prophets to teach people human perfection. So that they may know their place. “O Mankind, there are so many of My creatures in this world who are living with you. You could not distinguish your place from amongst other creatures? Then be resurrected along with them.” He will collect them there. The ones who come to this world and do not know the reality of this world is heedless. A human who does not know himself is ignorant. The one who is not aware of his place in this world is both heedless and ignorant. You have to know your place. So there, the human who does not look at reality and does not know truth cannot determine his own place either. When does he determine his own place? When he knows truth. Yes. People do everything, run around everywhere. Everything that takes place around them concerns them and by collecting information about everything they are concerned with and trying to make use of everything, they are trying to satisfy their own egos. Man will not be able to find truth if he does not leave what is around him and turn back to himself. Well, when we are always concerned with what is outside we lose turning inward, staying by ourselves, and knowing ourselves. The Prophet, alaihi s-salatu wa s-salam, said, “If a person does not know himself, he does not know his Lord.” The way to know Allah Almighty goes through you. As long as you know yourself you will find the way to know Allah Almighty. Otherwise, it is impossible for a man who does not know himself to know the One who created him.

Allah Almighty does not withhold but he observes your sincerity and Ikhlas.

As you see, the Seal of prophets, our Master, alaihi s-salatu wa s-salam, came with the fullest marifat (enlightenment) with his perfection, our Master brought what was given by Allah Almighty to His servants regarding Allah’s marifat/ spiritual knowledge. And according to what you ask, you are given from that perfection. Now, there are motors that run putt-putt-putt-putt. Petrol as little as my beard hair is enough for its motor. It will make it run. But there are huge vehicles with 18, 28, and 40 wheels. This little bit (of petrol) will not affect it in any way. You have to open for it like you open the kitchen faucet at home, so it runs. You are given according to your size. From the Prophet, alaihi s-salatus-salam, there is a source perfection enough to feed all his ummat (nation) from his heart – S.Muhammad’s heart to the awliya.

There is a large center, the main center for electricity. Then there are transformer stations in every area. They are filled from the main center. From there the power is distributed to light that neighborhood, to serve that neighborhood. But there are reservoirs to store the force given from him too. Now, from the Prophet’s, alaihi s-salatu wa s-salam, pure heart, S. Muhammad’s pure heart, the inayat (care) for the awliya is stored there – from Allah Almighty to S. Muhammad’s pure heart. Then it is transferred to the hearts of awliya, from East to West in every century. They open to the ones who ask according to their request and according to their need. He sends that power source to them. It is given according to their request. More than the request is not given. However much you want, no limits. There is no limit to a servant’s request. There is no limit to Allah Almighty’s giving.

There is no end to Allah Almighty’s treasures. The person who says, “I asked but did not receive,” lies. Allah Almighty did not find in you sincerity, did not find in you Ikhlas, so He did not give you. That is the wisdom behind His denial. You will not be able to be a possessor because you will not know its value. You do not have sincere trueness and perfection. Therefore, He is not giving it to you. The wisdom behind it: even though a small child shouts and cries for the valuable ring on her mother’s hand, or the gem on her neck, should the mother give it to the little girl? She is an idiot if she does. The child wants it but she (Mother) does not give even though she wants. So, what if she gives it. Would her mother withhold it from her? She (the child) would not keep it, she will not be able to hold it. If she gives her a red candy, she will take it off her neck. Even if it is the world’s most valuable jewel, in that child’s sight red candy is more valuable than red ruby. Ruby does not taste good in the mouth, but with candy she is relaxed. You are like that as well.

Like this, Allah Almighty does not withhold but he observes your sincerity and Ikhlas. He gives it to the one who can take care of it. Why would He give if one cannot take care? In that case He starts unveiling those treasures veil by veil, when there are seven breaths left before the last breath. When will it be entrusted to you? When there are seven breaths left before a person leaves the world. Haji Ali Efendi, if you bring the world’s most beautiful girl or woman and sit her there (next to the dying), is there any movement? Any movement? Is there? The end.

Now there is trust in that man.

Tabarruj ul Jahiliyeti (Self-Display in Jahiliya al-Akhira)


We have reached the most difficult period of time. Some things came to me, so I may speak about them. They are like this. And we are living in the most difficult times for Islam. But Allah Almighty wants us to renew our oath with Him (SubhanaHu wa Ta’ala). With Him (SubhanaHu wa Ta’ala) means with His Beloved (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam). Until they renew their oath with Rasulullah, there is no hope for them. This is the first point for the Muslim world to be aware of & to apply. They must declare that “we are from the nation of the Beloved, and not Syrian, Lebanese, Iraqi Palestinian, Egyptian.” Our honour is that we are part of the ummat of the Beloved (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam) of Allah (SubhanaHu wa Ta’ala). Till they recognize this there is no way out for them.

Allah (swt) says “and do not display yourselves like in the former times of ignorance” (33:33) This indicates that it is a passed period of time the first period of ignorance, but they will be under another period of ignorance. Wa La Tabarraju/and do not display yourselves, has a deep meaning. “Tabarruja Al-Jahiliyati Al-Ula”(33:33) Subahana Allah. Allah (swt) through His Beloved (saws) said that it is not appropriate to show off whether they are Egyptians, Saudis, Iraqi, Libyan. It is refused. That first period of ignorance every person was proud of themselves and their connections. The highest level of display of pride is to say “I am from the nation of the Beloved (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam)” Ya Rasulullah! Listen & take wisdom if you do, it will benefit you. There is no one who listens. There is no one left to listen to his words & orders. And many events took place. Subhana Allah!

Then after the first period of ignorance, it means that a second period of ignorance will come, and this is where we are now. It will be taken away. This second period of ignorance will also be taken away with a very strong power, from the Power of Prophethood Sahib Al Zaman al-Mahdi (as) Khalifa of Allah (swt) on the face of the earth. If he kicked this world with his foot it would go out of its orbit. That’s how great it is. Everything has an appointed time. They have been given a chance.

The most evil thing worshipped is the desire of the ego. People have followed their ego, “if you see people following their egos and obeying it and every person only likes his own opinion, keep yourself.” (Hadith) Subhana Allah. These are things that came to my heart by inspiration, or other means. It indicates the spread of corruption in the world. Allahu Akbar! But this situation has to end, because of the good tidings the Prophet (swas) gave. When he was asked “who will be in charge after you O Rasulullah?” he (saws) said “The Khalifas, Al Rashidin, Al Murshidin.” “And after them O Rasulullah?” “Princes, Amir Al Mu’minin.” “Then who will take care of the Ummah?” “The Kings will rule it, these ones who place above their heads the Holy Quran and they glorify the sunnah of Rasulullah and the book of Allah (awj), these are the Kings.” He is not a King, the one who is not master of himself. Astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah! “And after the Kings, it will be the last hour?” “After the kings, will come tyrants.” The time of tyrants, we are in it now. And it cannot be described what happened among the ummah from the injustice & oppression. “Wa Ahsinu Inna Allaha Yuhibbu Al-Muhsinina” (2:195) They closed, they blocked.

The Master of the Universe (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) represents the help of our Lord.

Jannah on earth


Asta’idhu billah, “wa khuliqal insanu da’ifan”(4:28) SubhanAllah. The nature of a person is weak. What can we do? We can’t do anything. We are in need of Divine help. We are in need of the help of our Lord. The Master of the Universe (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) represents the help of our Lord. Respect him. Don’t fear. Don’t respect other than him. They will ruin you. Respect our Master, alaihi s-salatu wa s-salam.

It will open. We will open in this holy month. Master of the Universe, I can’t do anything. May Allah forgive me. May He forgive you too. Let’s say Hu, Hu. Fatiha.

You can’t describe the oceans of oceans with a dot. We can give as much as is given. We can understand as much as we can. We can teach as much as we can teach. We can learn as much as we are able. And we leave what we can’t learn.

O our Rich Padishah, our Lord, our Lord, we love You. We don’t want weakness, we don’t want to be weak. I want to be strong. We don’t want to be like helpless animals on Your way. What we want is… Who is at the door of Rabb-ul Izzet cannot be helpless, cannot be mean; he is full of the bliss of love.

O my Lord, tawba ya Rabbi, tawba ya Rabbi, tawba astaghfirullah. Fatiha. He is Allah. We can’t compete. Take these away.

‘Protect that beauty’

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.
