O mankind, O people! Allāh created us to search for reality in this world. He (jj) tells us to go after reality. Search and find reality. Follow reality. Don’t run after imaginations. Allāh showed us the way – that is the real way. Imagination is a wrong way, it is the way of shayṭān. He made all kinds of ways to deceive mankind. Our way is clear. The Nation of Muḥammad’s way is clear. Shayṭān even divided them into sects. The ones, who are out of the right way, all run after imaginary things. Allāh showed everything. “Al-ḥalālu bayyinun wa l-ḥarāmu bayyin.” He said, Ḥalāl is clear, ḥarām is clear. The Glorious Qur’ān descended. There are the ḥadīth of our Prophet (ﷺ).

Although he showed it clearly and openly the ones out of Islām are totally in imagination. Shayṭān made 73 sects of the ones inside Islām. That’s why we have to follow the right way, shayṭān can’t deceive you. Don’t be cheated by ornamented things. In the old times, a man found a bead, there weren’t many knick knacks in those days. He cleaned it. The bead spoke to him and said “I’m not a valuable thing. Don’t try so hard. I’m only for decorating mules. Don’t think when you keep me close to your heart, it is useful for you. Look for jewels. Jewels are real.” That is Islām. It is the way of the Prophet (ﷺ). It is our ṭarīqah, with Allāh’s permission. Ṭarīqahs are on the right way, in shā’ Allāh.

Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla shows us the real, reality, ḥaqīqah. And He is calling “Come to this way, the reality way” because other ways are imagination. And people, they like to go, not after reality, but after imagination. But the end, who are going behind reality, they will win. They will win the biggest thing – real life. But who are looking for his, what he likes, and shayṭān showing him many things he like, saying “This is real way. I must go this”. But real way, it is clearly shown by Allāh. He sent His holy book Qur’ān and His Prophet (ﷺ). And everything written and shown. Even like this people, Muslim people even, they are 73 parts or more. Only one going to reality, others little bit going this side. Some of them too much going, even they are denying the Prophetﷺ and the Sunnah or Qur’ān. They are saying you can do better than this. But it is only… not real thing.

Real thing what Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla showing us. And many people, if somebody cheat them in dunyā, this world daily what they are doing, they become very angry. But shayṭān, he’s cheating you in the most important thing, your life, eternal life he’s cheating you. He destroys you to make you loser, the real loser. Because this life, we’ll be, you die. But there is eternal life. You are loser here, maybe you are poor or you are sick or ill or anything, but in next life if you do good thing and you’ll be in real way, right path, you will be winner. But in this dunyā you are strong, you are rich, you are everything, but you’re cheated by shayṭān, real eternal life, it will be bad for you. So you must be awakened. Don’t be cheated by shayṭān and don’t be in the world of imagination. Allāh show us the right path. In shā’ Allāh we all not to be cheated by shayṭān, in shā’ Allāh.

Wa min Allāhi t-tawfīq al-Fātiḥah.

Do Good in Ramadan

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

File Jun 19, 4 04 36 AM

As-salāmu alaykum wa raḥmatu Llāhi wa barakātuh. A‘ūdhu biLlāhi mina sh-shayṭāni r- rajīm. Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm. Aṣ-ṣalātu wa s-salāmu ‘alá Rasūlina Muḥammadin Sayyidi l-awwalina wa l-ākhirīn. Madad yā Rasūl Allāh, madad yā Sādāti Aṣḥābi Rasūli Llāh, dastūr yā Mashāyikhinā fi ṭ-ṭarīqati n-Naqshbandiyyi madad Shaykh ‘Abdu Llāh ad- Dāghistāni, Shaykh Muḥammad Nāẓim al-Haqqāni. Ṭarīqatunā ṣ-ṣuḥbah wa l-khayru fi l- jam‘iyyah. Ramaḍān mubārak, in shā’ Allāh.

Our Prophet (ﷺ) says in holy hadith and in khuṭbah (Friday sermon) “When the month of Ramaḍān comes, Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla looks at your good deeds. He (jj) shows them to the angels and gets proud. “Look how My servants are happy because Ramaḍān came. How they are doing good deeds. They dedicate themselves to worshipping”. That’s why our Prophet (ﷺ) says; “Do good in Ramaḍān. Let there be goodness, good things.”

Shukur to Allāh, Ramaḍān has a manifestation. Allāh gave it a special manifestation from Himself (JJ). It is different, you can’t find it in other months. After Ramaḍān ends, suddenly it feels as if it is closed. When holy 3 months are coming, it comes slowly but when Ramaḍān ends, it stops suddenly. People get used to that manifestation, to that good taste. They feel sad as if a friend had left. Allāh shows people goodness, good things. He says; “Do good things, search for good things”. The ego on the contrary, says the opposite. They follow that.

This is a matter of belief. When belief gets stronger, you don’t care about the world. Even if you do care, you want to use the world for ākhirah. He (jj) says; “Don’t earn in this world and leave it in the world. If you leave behind good children, if you leave good things for them, it is ok. Because people collect money, wealth and fortune in this world, as if they’ll never die. This is lack of belief. Believers say; “may Allāh give us, so we can help people, so that we have good deeds”. Our Prophet (ﷺ) says in a holy ḥadīth; “If someone helps a Muslim brother it is better than doing i‘tikāf (seclusion) for 2 months in Masjid an-Nabawī. That isn’t like a normal masjid. When somebody helps people it is better than doing 2 months i‘tikāf in our Prophet’s (ﷺ) masjid. For every i‘tikāf, even if they aren’t there, but are elsewhere, the virtue of every day of i‘tikāf is such that He (jj) gives such a paradise that between East and West, three water channels each as wide as the distance between East and West – that much space in paradise Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla gives to these people. Doing i‘tikāf is a big virtue but what is even better is helping believing brothers and sisters to resolve their problems. This is better, as our Prophet (ﷺ), the honest and the right said.

So, this world should be for ākhirah, not for this world. The purpose is not this world. It is ākhirah. If Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla gives you the world, it will be at your service. If you run for the world, you’ll be serving this world, you’ll be its slave. May Allāh make this Ramaḍān mubārak (blessed). In shā’ Allāh, all these blessings will be opened for us. May they have blessings, both physically and spiritually. For the locals here, there are as many students coming from abroad as the people, who live here. In shā’ Allāh, it will be a blessing for them also. When you look for sprituality there seems to be little outside among the people. Like Mawlānā used to say; “ordinary people” they aren’t aware of Ramaḍān. They know nothing about religion either. With Allāh’s wisdom, there is a big spirituality on this island, Ḥalā Sulṭān being in the first place. There are more than 1000 ṣaḥābah. Their places are known. There are martyrs and awliyā’ coming after them. There are believers. Finally, Mawlānā and Hajja Anne are here. They are the spiritual caretakers of this place. There is spiritual power. Not only for here, they reach everywhere in the world. With Allāh’s permission. the power of awliyā’ doesn’t decrease, rather it increases after going to ākhirah. We see this everywhere. Anybody, who comes, even if they don’t know Mawlānā, they are telling of the karāmāt (miracles) and help of Mawlānā after he passed away.

In shā’ Allāh, here it is beautiful. One of the good servants of Allāh is here, one of the good things. These are things we need to search for. Happy are those, who know. It is good for people, who appreciate. To those, who don’t appreciate, a bead and an emerald are the same. It doesn’t matter. Many times people have found valuable diamonds, glass diamonds, emeralds. They sold it for nothing, for the price of a bead. Those, who knew the value they sold it for a million times that price. It is important to appreciate. May Allāh make us from those, who appreciate.

Keep your belief strong. Whatever Allāh says will be. For this reason, don’t have any doubt. These devils want you to doubt. They can’t do harm to people, who are connected. They can only do it to people, who are outside. They don’t have value. Valuable people in Allāh’s sight are the believers. “I’m the president, I’m rich, I’m this, that, I’m beautiful” – these have no value. It wasn’t given by Allāh. People gave honour to themselves. May Allāh give all of us persistence in this way. May Allāh give sense to non-believers. In shā’ Allāh, they find the right path. Mawlānā was saying; “May all these people be Muslims, come to the right path”. He didn’t want badness. If we say “may these people, not come to the right path”, then we will want for them bad things. We want goodness so that they come to such nice places, to beauty. In shā’ Allāh, they will come to the right path. When they do, we won’t lose anything, On the contrary we will gain. Blessings will increase. Light will increase, in shā’ Allāh.

Al-ḥamdu liLlāh we have reached the month of Ramaḍān, which Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla He make a special thing for this month. And He is looking for people, human beings, and for believers and when they are doing good things in this month, He is happy and He is proud to say for [to] angels “Look for [at] these people, how they are respecting this month, and they are happy with this month, worshipping, doing every good thing.” The Prophet (ﷺ) said – atākum shahru r-Ramaḍān – this is in khuṭbah we said. It’s like giving good tidings. Ramaḍān it is a special month and it has something you cannot find in another month. Especially when it is finished, you feel it. You are like suddenly go [to an] empty place. But before Ramaḍān, there is Rajab, Sha‘bān beginning slowly, slowly to make these months to prepare for Ramaḍān. But when finished, you feel a sadness because it is – maybe people they are happy they finished fasting, no more fasting, no more long praying, but, even this, they are feeling sadness. Because this is giving your spiritual feeding. Your spirituality taking from this month and be happy. Because when you don’t have any spirituality you feel miserable, you feel sad. But in this month, for believers especially, it is giving [a] special gift from Allāh.

Allāh He likes people to obey. And even suffering from hunger they are catching another thing. When you are hungry, you feel, you cannot think bad things. Only you think “I am hungry” or if not, tired. But it is giving this for your body, bodily being. But for spiritual [being], it is important to not be full with food. When you are full with food, becoming like horse – you like to run this way, that way. But when you are hungry, everything you can, tied your ego, shayṭān cannot affect for you. And Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla saying for people to do good things in this month, especially zakāt. And it is once a year but most of the people they are doing in Ramaḍān. To not forget. and to help people, it is also very important. You are doing this for Allāh.

And Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla give this world to live – it is not for, only for living for this dunyā. No, for… You can make money, you can make everything in this dunyā. You can be strong, you can be high, you can be rich. It is not bad. But not for main aim to [be] this. The main aim [is] to use this for way of Allāh. If you do this, you are in right way. But if only running after dunyā, not giving anything for people, bringing everything for you, this it is wrong. But for, to help people, it is free. You can be rich as much you like, after you give your charity. You give for poor people, [to] help people, it is very good. Because Prophet (ﷺ) saying, there is ḥadīth also: “To help one believer to his brother for everything, [it] may be with money or physically or by tongue. To help him, Allāh rewards him more than two months i‘tikāf (seclusion) in his holy mosque [of] Prophet (ﷺ). And i‘tikāf it is this month also, after 20th of Ramaḍān. Each day, Allāh gives three …, like this world from East to West, three times bigger than this. For one day, for i‘tikāf who doing not [only] in Medina, everywhere. But in Medina, Prophet (ﷺ) especially saying and it is more reward. 60 days it is nothing comparing to this what he, believer helping his brother.

For this, we can look for business, for work, for everything. It is not forbidden. Not for dunyā [are] we doing this. Only for be strong, for help people, for help Islām, for help ṭarīqah. When you do this, even it is as Prophet (ﷺ) [said] like worshipping. We mustn’t forget this. We are, everything we do we do for sake of Allāh and, in shā’ Allāh, we hope, we are in this island. [On] this island [it] looks like the people they are forgetting religion. They are not remembering. Even if you go out of the dergâh you cannot see, maybe 95% of people they don’t know we are in Ramaḍān. But OK, it’s not important. What [is] important – this island has a special spiritual power by people, holy people, they lived here and they [are] buried here. Especially like Ḥalā Sulṭān, and there are more than 1000 of ṣaḥābah of Prophet (ﷺ). There is awliyā’ there is ṣāliḥīn there is shuhadā’ martyrs. Especially, we have Mawlānā Shaykh. He is in his holy place, and Hajji Anne. They are giving power not only for this island, for everywhere of [in the]world. Because Awliyā’u Llāh, Beloved people for Allāh, they are becoming more stronger when they pass away. When they changing their world, they are becoming more active.

So, al-ḥamdu liLlāh, we are not ya’s (hopeless) we are not hopeless for these people. And we are, Mawlānā was every time making du‘ā’ to make these people also to be, come to right way. We are not cursing people. We want good for people. Mawlānā also wanted good things for people, and the best thing for people, for human beings, [is] to come for right way, to know their Creator and believe in Him, and respect Him. This is the best thing for them, [that] we can make du‘ā’ for them. We are not cursing them, because curse not good. Better to make du‘ā’, pray for them, for human beings to come to right way. In shā’ Allāh. For this, sake of Prophet (ﷺ), mashāyikh, Mawlānā Shaykh, and for the sake of Ramaḍān. In shā’ Allāh

Life Is For Testing

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

Sultan Sheikh Mehmet Adil Al-Haqqani (QS), Sohbat of the 22nd of June, Ramadan 2015, Lefke – Cyprus

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, madad ya Shaykh Abdullahi d- Daghistani, Shaykh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani, dastur. Tariqatuna s-sohbah, wa l- khayru fi jam’iyyah.

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.

Wa min Allahi t-tawfiq Al-Fatiha

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

Sultan Sheikh Mehmet Adil Al-Haqqani (QS), Sohbat of the 20th of June – Ramadan 2015, Lefke – Cyprus

UK Spring Tour 2015, On the first day of the tour in Noor ul Islam Mosque, Bury

UK Spring Tour 2015, On the first day of the tour in Noor ul Islam Mosque, Bury

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.

Ramadan 2015, Lefke-Cyprus

Ramadan 2015, Lefke-Cyprus

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.

After Eid

Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi (qs), Sohbat – 8th August, 2013.

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim

It is the second day of the Ramadan Eid. May our eid be blessed, may it be honoured. On each Eid, a dress of honour is dressed on people.

Let us listen to what kind of a statement Shah Mardan will make to his yaran. It is only a few words but what can we do? It is not from us but may we learn some adab from the holy ones. Welcome to you, you came with goodness. May we stay in goodness and leave in goodness. Go ahead O Shah Mardan, your yaran are your admirers. Dastur Ya Sahiba-l Imdad- the imdad/help of Shah Mardan reaches from the East to the West. What we will listen to here are something from the jewels holy Shah Mardan will grant us – let us listen to it. Let us learn something that gives us benefit. May our day not be spent in vain. May we learn something, which will save us from this prison of dunya and bring us near to the people who carry qudsiyya/holiness – near to the people who are like Shah Mardan and carry holiness. “Al-mar’u ma’a man ahabb.”

O our Lord, grant us a power… It is not right to say this directly to Allah Almighty. There are the holy ones who can give imdad- here he is, Shah Mardan. It is not for us to address Allah directly. It is not for us. Everyone should know his level. Marhaba Shaykh Mehmet Effendi. Marhaba, our grandson. Every person should know his situation/capacity. And what will we gain by knowing? Go ahead O Shah Mardan, what will we get? We will attain to the Ilahi Lutf/Divine Grants. Through whom? Through HabibuLlah. And how can you find a way to reach him? You find it through the holy ones like Shah Mardan. Look for them! Dastur Ya RijalAllah. Dastur Ya Shah Mardan. We are – “Wa Khuliqa l-‘Insanu Da`ifaan” (4:28)- created weak, Haji, meaning our power is according to our capacity. An ant too has a power. It is not expected to do anything beyond it. Along with this, that little ant picks and carries a little piece of food in its mouth. It does a duty, does a service. Just like this, us. The children of Adam – are mukallaf – responsible for an Order. Who is not obliged to keep the order is in the animal category. We are obliged to keep the Order. Therefore we should strictly & carefully know that Order.

And let us hear them from you- O Shah Mardan, your yaran admire you. How beautiful, how beautiful, how beautiful. O Lord, You dressed on us beauty, not ugliness. Allahu Akbar! He (swt) created Man beautiful. Shaytan got jealous of it, Shaykh Mehmet Effendi. When shaytan saw that beauty in Prophet Adam, it got jealous & said “No, this is suitable for me”. Your Creator is Who knows what is suitable or not suitable for you. It says “No. This beauty, this Sultanate should be given to me”. Ya Rabbi, we don’t have any claim for sultanate. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. We have no claim to sultanate. The crown of sultanate was dressed along with the Caliphate but this is not our claim. “Wa ‘Idh Qala Rabbuka Lil-Mala’ikati ‘Inni Ja’ilun Fii l-‘Ardi Khalifa” (2:30) Allahu Akbar wa A’zam Allahu Akbar. O our Lord, forgive us. We should know ourselves. Who doesn’t know himself is an animal. Know yourself. Know your attribute. Know what you should do. Know what you should accomplish too. This is an important matter. Ok, he said about this matter-

Shah Mardan Hz says: “O my yaran, let us say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim”. Without saying Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim these doors don’t open. Allahu Akbar. The key to any door is Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. O our Lord, Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim- may we also say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim from this holy language of Shah Mardan. But we can’t say as he says it. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. It descended on Prophet Adam once. It descended on Prophet Noah once. How many times it descended on Ibrahim (as)- Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. It descended & again was raised – the Bismillah. It made a service- saved Prophet Abraham from the fire of Nimrod. Noah recited the Bismillah & it saved him from the flood. It saved from the fire of Nimrod. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Huuu.

“‘Innahu Min Sulaymana Wa ‘Innahu Bismi Llahi r-Rahmani r-Rahimi” (27:30). The dress of azamat/greatness in which Prophet Solomon dressed, no other Prophet dressed in, our son Shaykh Mehmet Effendi. He would rule over the Men & Jinn with the Bismillah. Yes. When that holy letter went to the Queen of Sheba, the throne of the Queen of Sheba shook! Why? In the letter, “‘Innahu Min Sulaymana Wa ‘Innahu Bismi Llahi r-Rahmani r-Rahimi”. Her throne, her crown got destroyed & she, herself fell down to sajda. O People of the Book- who believe in the Bible, who believe in the Torah- are these stories not written in your Books? Yes, Prophet Solomon- that you call him “King Solomon”, King Solomon, Sulaiman, Sultan Sulaiman- the beloved servant of Allah who more than the other Prophets held the zahiri/external power & ruled over Men & Jinn. They make us say it (this Verse) over & over so that the barakah comes on us too. “‘Innahu Min Sulaymana”- this holy letter came from Prophet Solomon. “Wa ‘Innahu Bismi Llahi r-Rahmani r-Rahimi”. “Wa ‘Innahu Bismi Llahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim”. Prophet Solomon was dressed with the dress of azamat and the sultanate, which the Queen of Sheba claimed, fell to the ground, nothing remained of it. Allah Almighty granted it to the servants of the nation of Muhammad (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam).

“‘Innahu Min Sulaymana Wa ‘Innahu Bismi Llahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim”. He (swt) granted it to us. He (Solomon) used it once and it was enough for him. He (swt) permitted us to say it all our life for the honour of His Habib (sas). “Iqra’ Bismi Rabbika Lladhi Khalaqa” (96:1) Read with the Bismillah. “Iqra’ Bismi Rabbika Lladhi Khalaqa” (96:1) Read with saying the Majestic Name of the Creator. “Read!” “What should I read?” He (swt) said “Read! Read O My Beloved”. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. So in assemblies like this we attribute it to Shah Mardan. We say “We also need an adab in this life. What should be our adab?”

What is our job in dunya? To eat, drink & then to fill the toilet? What is this? Is this our job in dunya? Say O people of the Book! Let their Pope say it. Let their Rabbis say it. Is our job in dunya to eat, drink & fill the toilet? Say the truth! Is that it? Did Allah create you for this? A’udhu biLlah, a’udhu biLlah. “Wa Ma Khalaqtu l-Jinna Wa l-‘Insa ‘Illa Li ya’buduni”(51:56). I created Men & Jinn only to worship Me. How do you attain to the level of servanthood? Shaykh Mehmet Effendi, it can be reached through the rank of knowledge given to the people. Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar wa Lillahi l-Hamd. Say O scholars of Islam! Why don’t you say this to the Muslims who are wandering in the streets? Why don’t you say it, O who say “I believe in Torah”? Did Prophet Moses make weapons, cannons against Pharaoh? Why should he have needed any weapons? Prophet Moses was dressed from the azamat of the Bismillah, for this Pharaoh got destroyed along with his throne.

Say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim and all your difficulties open up, O children of Adam. Don’t fear from each other, fear from Who created you. He is the Allahu Dhu-l Jalal. If He (swt) gives permission one of you can strike & finish all of you. Azamat! Allah is Who dresses the children of Adam in the dress of azamat. There are some who wear it & some who don’t. The ones dressed with it are unknown. The ones who are not are in the streets.

“‘Illa Li ya’buduni”(51:56). I created them so that they worship Me. You are not created to search for gold, silver on earth; not for claiming wealth, nor for killing, destroying, burning each other. Shame on the Book-given people that they are not saying this and very few from the people of Islam say it either. “I created the people & may there be Sultan for them”. One can’t fight against a Sultan. Can he? How can you fight against the Sultan? You are an ordinary person. You don’t have much of a specialty. How can you fight against a Sultan at whose door you stand? What does it mean? Man is Man with his respect. Who has no respect has no adab. Who has no adab is animal. One feels sorry that the people of today do not know their glory. Allah Almighty said: “Wa La Taqtulu ‘Anfusakum”(4:29). Is it not like this? There is the Order that says “Don’t kill”. How can you violate the Order? Did Allah Who dressed you with the dress of Sultanate, make you Sultan so that you could kill His servants? Hasha.

Go ahead O Shah Mardan, your yaran admire you. May we be clean, may we be beautiful. May we be filled with love & longing. May we be filled with the love of our Lord. Through whose way? Through the Prophet of the end of times (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam). Learn adab. “Addabani Rabbi” Teach this O scholars of Egypt! Why did you not teach these people adab? Some said “Ikhwan”, some said “apes”, some said “animals”. Hasha. Why don’t you say “Insan ‘ala wazni Sultan”- Man is Sultan. Sultan is a person who is worthy of respect. Did Allah dress us with this sultanate? Yes, He did. If He did, then keep it. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Masha Allah. You are Subhan Ya Rabbana, You are Sultan Ya Rabbana. Increase us in strength O Shah Mardan. May we be beautiful, may we be clean. May we be courteous. Well, now in this time, I am looking- People have nothing to do other than the way of adorning their egos and satisfying their animal desires. How do you tell? There is no religion, no faith, no Islam. What is a man who has no religion, no faith? Not responsible. Who is not responsible is animal.

Say O Pope! Instead of making cross like this, say a few words. What did Prophet Jesus say? Did he tell you to build churches and to make bell towers for them? Ding dong. Ding dong. Ding dong. Ding dong. Which Prophet did this? Which religion has this ringing of bells? Upon which order did Prophet Jesus tell his nations to make bells? “Make bells & ring them”. Bell is a rattle hanged on the necks of animals. It is not suitable for Man. Address the Man in the language of Man. Say O Pope: “O people, come to Your Creator for servanthood. Leave the fight. Because if this world is yours today, it will be someone else’s tomorrow. Don’t be greedy for this dunya”. Because Prophet Jesus came having one dress & left having the same one dress. Allahu akbar Allahu akbar. Did Prophet Jesus have a 2nd dress? Allahu Akbar. What a Sultan he was. He came to teach the nations, the people, the ways reaching to the Haqq/Truth. Who didn’t accept the Truth stood against him, didn’t want him. Who didn’t want him are shaytans.

Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Our situation is evident to you. There is no need to explain, you see our situation. Shaytan stripped Men out of their humanity. They follow shaytan but don’t follow the Order of ar-Rahman. Allahu Akbar ‘Azamu wa ‘Ajal Subhanahu wa Ta’ala. He (swt) is not pleased with this situation of ours. The people who live in this time, Shaykh Mehmet Effendi, for their desires, meaning for their own egoistic desires… Ashar ma ‘ubid, ma ‘ubid the worst that was ever worshipped. The people who follow their egoistic desires are the most evil ones, it says. Is it not like this? You may correct it. Did Allah Almighty tell you to build tall buildings, wear beautiful clothes, follow the fashion, expose your body? O Muslims! What is this situation of yours? You celebrated Eid, fasted Ramadan but now that Ramadan has passed, again you returned to your old life & made a mess out of it. You forgot your situation in Ramadan & again fell into those dirty holes. Their women into one kind and their men into another kind. They are like the herds who don’t know what they are doing.

Well, the one who is the head of a country read a khutba in the Eid celebrations- his own khutba: “O people! We completed Ramadan. Now it is Eid & what were forbidden in Ramadan are now allowed/mubah”. What did they allow by calling “mubah”? They allowed all kinds of dirty things, all kinds of it. The people- the people of the Muslim countries again started running after eating, drinking and dressing up. Meaning, the religion of today’s people who claim to be Muslim is- “ashar ma ‘ubid hawa n-nafis”.(The worst that was ever worshipped is the whims of the ego.) What is their religion? To do the things they like, they enjoy & to satisfy their egoistic pride. So women & men, they plan & count like this to carry out their dirty egoistic desires: “Ramadan has passed. Let us now dive into the sea, go to the shopping places & wander in the gaming halls”.

Shame on them. Allah didn’t create Man to play. Collect yourself. If you don’t, the one who will collect you, will come. May Allah forgive us. May Allah forgive us. After Ramadan passes, it goes back to the same routine- “Do what you want, don’t fear”. And then? “Duribat ‘Alayhimu dh- Dhillatu Wa l-Maskanatu” (2:61). Is the Verse not like this? On the necks of these children of Adam “maskanat”, they are miskeen (miserable). “Zillat”, they are zaleel (humiliated) and miskeen (miserable). There is no clean person left who may walk upright & straight and stand ready in the Presence of his Lord. For this, “They were covered with humiliation & misery” (2:61). There is humiliation & misery on all the people. They are humiliated. This- “Duribat ‘Alayhimu dh-Dhillatu Wa l-Maskanatu”- now a bridle of humiliation is put on all the people, because of this they say “we are tired of carrying this. Let us not carry it & find another method”. What other method can you find? When you reject the honour Islam brought, can there be any honour for you? You can’t find any other way or method, you only go corrupt.

“Duribat ‘Alayhimu dh-Dhillatu Wa l-Maskanatu”- Whole world is wandering in the streets in a humiliated state. There was no such a thing before. They are both humiliated & miserable. They all have some kind of a disease- all of them have some kind of a bad disease, women have a different one and men have different. And as a punishment, there is humiliation & misery for them. A believer is high, he is exalted. When Allah Almighty gives a punishment to His servant, Jaza’an wifaqa, He (swt) gives a suitable punishment. Let them keep shouting, screaming. Let them fire cannons, burn, destroy. There is nothing they gain nor is there any goodness in what they do. One day they will hit them too. Allah will humiliate the ones who humiliate the people. Allah made the people aziz/strong, granted them a high rank- granted a rank higher than the angels. When you make them low, there will come the people who will make you even lower. O our Lord! May you dress on us a dress from the addressing of Shah Mardan who keep the ways of adab & teach them to us. May You dress on us the honourable servanthood dress that descends on the Kaba Al-Mu’azzama & expel the ones who strip it off & throw it away. Many threw away the dress of servanthood & become an animal to their dirty egos. They have no other job. “Whatever I like, I do it”, they have nothing else.

May Allah not make our faces ugly. May our faces not get ugly & also may He not throw our hearts into dhulm/ darkness. Ask for it. Let us say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim, march and do not fear. Fatiha.

“Where are you going to?” “I’m going to the tomb of Abu Ayyub Sultan”. “Ok, but what is this? Your dress was different yesterday”. “What can we do? We go to Abu Ayyub Sultan covered”. “Well, will he even look at you? You uncover for who looks at you & cover for who doesn’t look at you”. This is the doing of Turks- They go covered for visiting the awliyas and then after that, they open up like roses. It is a shame, one can’t be Muslim like this. “Duribat ‘Alayhimu dh-Dhillatu Wa l-Maskanatu”- Humiliation & misery fit them perfectly, they are dressed with it & they are all humiliated & miserable. Collect yourself. O nation of Islam! Be shy from Allah! Be shy from His Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam)! Collect yourself!

May Allah forgive us. O our Lord, send us a Master who will collect us, send us one like Shah Mardan.

Fatiha.

The Takbir of Eid

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

Before Eid Prayer (Eid ul-Fitr 2013), Mawlana congratulated all of us and explained the meaning of Eid and the value of Takbir.

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim qs

Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi (qs), Sohbat – 8th August, 2013.

As-Salamu alaikum, O yaran of Shah Mardan. The ahbab of Shah Mardan, may Salam be upon you. On this holy day when Ramadan Sharif is completed, may Salam be upon the believers who are ready to celebrate Bayram/the festival.

Madad Ya Sahibu-l Maydan, Shah Mardan. May you grant us from your holy words. Your yaran are your admirers. May we kiss the hands, the feet of our Master who is the Fakhru l- Ka’inat, the pride of all Creation (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam) and may he grant us his intercession and compassion. This is a sohbat from Shah Mardan. It is according to our level, our capacity. If we pass beyond our capacity, it is of no benefit. Welcome to you, O yaran of Shah Mardan. Marhaba to those who attend the assembly of the lovers of Shah Mardan. O our Shah Mardan, the Lion of lions!

Mubarak the feast of Ramadan Sharif. May it be mubarak for you and mubarak for us also. Come in- O yaran, O ahbab. Kunu Ibad’Allahi ikhwana – the servants of Allah are are brothers. Let us say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim- remember the Majestic Name of our Mawla, and that He accepted us for His servanthood. He  (Subhānahu wa Ta‘āla) dressed us with that honour. Let us praise, thank our Lord. Let us put our foreheads on the ground for sajda. Even if there was no order to make sajda, to prostrate before Who created us, to make sajda for Him is the glory/shan & iftikhar/ pride of the people.

Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Today is the first day of the Ramadan Feast- it is Bayram (Eid/Festival). What have we done that it came to be a festival? We have done/accomplished something according to our capacity & Allah Almighty is paying in return. The great Angels are surprised in the Heavens- “These children of Adam are on the streets this morning. They are rushing somewhere all together, with such joy”. Subhan Allah. Come in O Muslims. There is a shadumani/happiness. You can’t see, you can’t celebrate this happiness, this joy every day. Shadumani, it is bayram/festival. The servants of Allah put on their clean dresses, put on their new dresses and they are walking in the streets, in crowds at the time of dawn. To where are they walking? They are going to the Diwan/Assembly of their Lord to make sajda for their Lord, to make shukur & to find the joy of being forgiven by chanting Allahu Akbar.

What is the day today? What day? Do you not hear it in the streets, in the dawn? in the mosques- “Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar La Ilaha Ill’Allahu w’Allahu akbar Allahu akbar wa lillahi l-hamd”. Allah. “Dress on them” He (swt) says, “dress on them barakah/blessings- dress on My servants from the barakah of Heavens that they are magnifying Me. They are saying “Allahu Akbar”. Dress on them, dress on them from the Nurani dress of Heavens that they may be pleased. Their Eid may be mubarak. O Angels! You also join them. You also say the Takbir”. The Islamic nations are gaining majesty with Takbir. They are – the servants of Allah- are walking through the streets arrayed in lines. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar La Ilaha Ill’Allahu w’Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar wa liLlahi l-Hamd.

The Malaika Kiram, the great Angels also join them and set off an uproar in dunya – whole dunya is in an uproar- dunya is shaking with the Takbirs of this holy day, the Eid of Ramadan. Allahu Akbar! They shake dunya like the rocking of a cradle. Listen to the words of the holy Shah Mardan and walk with him. Ka’anna, ka’annahu- you will be as if you walked with the Shah Mardan. Al mar’u maa man ahabba. The person is with the one he loves. Love and you will be loved. You should know who to love. O our Lord! Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar La Ilaha Ill’Allahu w’Allahu akbar Allahu Akbar wa lillahi l-Hamd. Dunya is shaking, from every direction. On the oceans the Angels who are appointed for the oceans as well as the holy ones, the murabit (saints appointed to look after a particular place), are reciting the Takbir. Not only these, but there is the group who are not responsible yet they even recite in their own language, the poor ones. Takbir is not for them but they have their tasbih / praising. “Wa in min shayin illa yusabbihu bihamdihi walakin la tafqahuna tasbeehahum”. (17:44)

Everything has its tasbih- they have their tasbih, their tazim/glorification of their Creator. “Subhan Allah, Subhan Allah, Subhan Allah”- there is not one atom that does not say this, S. Mehmet Effendi. The Angels of the Seven Heavens on this holy day of Eid- the voice of each one of them is like the voice of the Angel of Ra’ad (the angel responsible for thunder & rain)- recite the Takbir. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar La Ilaha Ill’Allahu w’Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa liLlahi l-Hamd. How beautiful. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. How beautiful. What a beautiful day today is. To where are all these people going? They go magnifying their Lord. The children of Adam magnify & the rest of the creation praises / makes tasbih.

So it is today that Shah Mardan said these few words to us. O holy Shah Mardan. Man is the Hz Insan. His maqam/station is high. He is the Caliph on earth. So one should appreciate the honour of Man accordingly. Man should appreciate the honour of other Men. Who doesn’t know this falls down to the category of animals. Who know the honour rank of Man- they are dressed especially with a dress from Heavens. They are dressed with a new dress of Eid. There is no value in dunya (wordly) dresses. We didn’t do anything, but in Allah Almighty’s Presence, our simple glorification, praise and exaltation is accepted. An order is coming – dress My servants who are making Takbir with a dress of Eid from heavens. What a dress it is. That is why if people knew that rank, they wouldn’t stay in the stable of animals. They would run to the assemblies of the Yaran (beloved friends) of Shah Mardan while reciting Divine Takbir (Allahu Akbar).

What a nice day. The Angels are in the streets. Where are they going? They are going to make Shukr Sajdah (prostration of thanks) to their Lord. They are the ones who value Holy Ramadan. They did what they could according to their capacity. Don’t give them from the dress of dunya. Give them… Today everyone wears new dunya clothes too, in order to show appreciation for the value of this day. They wear their clean clothes, even if it has patches. They wear their clean, new clothes. Where do they go while saying Takbir? They are going to do their servanthood for their Lord and give praise.

Madad Ya Shah Mardan. Shah Mardan is giving his Yaran good tidings – Today, you are going early in the morning while making Takbir. We won’t leave you with patched clothes; we won’t leave you with dunya dresses. You will be dressed with the dress of honor from heavens. That’s why they go with joy. They go with hope and return with joy and they will find everything.

Welcome our Yaran (beloved friends). May your honor be forever. May you live a nice life. May your life in dunya be a nice life, a sweet life, an honorable life. O Shah Mardan, go ahead. Your Yaran admire you. Those who love him are his Yaran, his beloved friends. Let’s love and be loved. Those who love are loved. Love Muslims. Defend/ support Muslims. Stay away from those who are far from Islam. Don’t give them your hand, don’t be close to them. Allahu Akbar. Be close to those who love Islam. Stay away from those who don’t love Islam. Even if they have a treasure like Qarun, don’t be close to them, don’t ask from them. They can’t match Islam’s honor, beauty, richness, lights, Islam’s holiness and blessings.

O Muslims, listen. Let’s listen to Shah Mardan. This is what he is saying. Love so you can be loved. Love Allah and run to Him. Love our Master and run to him. Run away from those who don’t love them. Don’t go, O Muslim, don’t go to those who don’t come to Islam. Don’t beg from them. Don’t deal with them even if they give you money. Keep the honor of Islam, and Allah Almighty will send you grants like rain. Subhan Allah, Sultan Allah. Our Lord, our Sultan, our Lord, our Subhan, who did He dress with those attributes? He dressed our Master (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam). Awliya (saints) call him – Fakhru Ka’inat/ Pride of the Universe. Look at our Master, the Master of the Universe (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam). Don’t look anywhere else. Even if they pile gold in front of you, kick it aside and leave it. The love of the Pride of the Universe, and his honor is enough for us. O Turks, you have become bewildered. O Arabs, you have become confused. You are running after democracy. That is a WC. Whoever falls in it will drown. Come to the clean way. We are Muslims. Don’t search for anything other than Islam. There is no honor in that. Honor is with Muslims. There is nothing for them outside Islam.

O our Lord, give us strength. O Shah Mardan, may your words be a cure for those present. Let’s fill our mosques. Let’s say – Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar La ilaha illa Allah wa Llahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa liLlahi l-Hamd. How nice. Today is the day that special mercy comes down from heavens to those who kept the orders during the holy Ramadan so they can celebrate and pray 2 rak’at. MashaAllah, mashaAllah. Let’s appreciate it and dress with Islam. Let’s dress as Muslims. You can’t find any other dress as beautiful as the dress of Muslims. You can’t find the dress of Islam or dress of Muslims anywhere else. Those who see you should know that you are Muslim.

Our Lord, our Subhan, our Sultan, for the sake of Your Beloved Habib (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam), You gave us all these blessings. Let’s love You. Let’s walk on Your way. Let’s find honor on Your way. There is no honor on any other way. Say – Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar la ilaha illa Allah wa Llahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa liLlahi l-Hamd. Eid prayer is with Takbir. How nice it is with Takbir. And now, today, it is almost time for Eid prayer. These few words from Shah Mardan are enough for us. It is enough for the whole world and for 7 worlds. Let’s say – Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar la ilaha illa Allah wa Llahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa liLlahi l-Hamd. Al-‘Azamatu liLlah.

Yesterday, the whole universe trembled like this. And there was the glorification & exaltation of the Angels. Go ahead, our brothers, make dua (supplication) for us too. May your honor increase. Man’s honor is from Islam. There is no honor outside of Islam. Allahumma salli ‘ala Sayyidina Muhammad Sayyidi l-Awwalina wa l-Akhirin. Salat and Salam to our Master who is the Sultan of sultans. May it be easy for us to follow the ways he showed us. May our faces be full of lights and our hearts pure. May our end be a good one. Go with clean ones. Don’t open your hand to kafir (unbelievers). Don’t wish anything from them. Say “Allah” and go. Say “Allah” and set out. This is enough for today. Today’s explanation and pronouncement could continue until next year, but this is enough. Our Khalifa (representative) Sheikh Mehmed Effendi will give a talk and others will benefit.

Pray for us too.

Fatiha.

Don’t cry.
