The Real Way

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

As-salāmu alaykum wa raḥmatu Llāhi wa barakātuh. A‘ūdhu biLlāhi mina sh-shayṭāni rrajīm. Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm. Aṣ-ṣalātu wa s-salāmu ‘alá Rasūlina Muḥammadin Sayyidi l-awwalīna wa l-ākhirīn. Madad yā Rasūl Allāh, madad yā Sādāti Aṣḥābi Rasūli Llāh, madad yā Mashāyikhinā, dastūr. Ṭarīqatunā ṣ-ṣuḥbah wa l-khayru fi l-jam‘iyyah.


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.

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

Fasting Is Light

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Sheikh Mehmet Adil Al-Haqqani (Qaddas Allahu Sirruhul Azeez), Sohbat of the 19th of June, 2015, Lefke-Cyprus

Sultan ul Awliya- Ramadan

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

This is the first Juma of Ramadan. Nurun ala nur (Light upon light) (24:35) He says. Nur on top of nur. Juma is the day Allah granted to His Beloved(sallAllahu alaihi wasallam), granted to his nation. Ramadan is also a gift for them. Fasting is a fard in Ramadan for us, it was a fard for the nations before us. Of course they changed it, they did something but Allah Azza and Jalla says in a verse, “Fasting is sent to you as a fard (obligation) and to the nations before you.” (2:183) So, it is not only our Prophet’s way of worshipping.

Since old times, since Adam alaihi s-salam fasting has been there. When Adam alaihi s-salam descended from Paradise – there was no sun in Paradise of course. It was not hot, not cold. It is a beautiful place enlightened with nur (light). Its weather is mild and beautiful. Everything is beautiful in paradise. That’s why, when Allah Azza wa Jalla sent Adam alaihi s-salam to the earth, the sun burnt our father Adam alaihi s-salam. When it burnt, he turned black. His skin was burnt. Allah Azza wa Jalla revealed to him to fast on 13th of the month. He fasted 1 day, his color got lighter. Allah Azza wa Jalla told him to fast one more day . He fasted also on the 14th, his color lightened again. He said “Fast on 15th also”, it was inspired. When he fasted he went back to his normal color, Adam alaihi s-salam.

For this reason it is an order to fast also for them as well. 13th, 14th, 15th are called white days, “ayyami bayd.” They say in the hadith, there is a big reward to fast on these days. Why did Adam alaihi s-salam’s color get lighter? Because fasting gives nur (light). Each day he fasted, he got whiter. When he fasted the second day, he got more nur (light). The third day he really got a lot of nur (light), that darkness left on him no trace.

Our Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam) said to Hadhrat Ali; “If you fast on 13th day, there is reward of 10.000 years. On 14th day, there is 20.000 years of reward, and if you fast on 15th 30.000 years of reward you will receive.” Our Prophet said to Hz. Ali. When he said this hadith fasting in Ramadan was not fard (obligation) yet. Fasting in Ramadan was ordered after the hijra. Before that it was still an obligation, but at different times – on the day of Ashura, 10th of Muharram, there were other days for fasting. But it later became a fard to fast the whole month of holy Ramadan after the hijra. Allah gave it as a gift to the nation. It is an important month. In each moment there is the glance and support of Allah Azza wa Jalla. He sends lights, gifts with angels, favors for the Nation of Muhammad, for the ones, who are fasting. The ones, who cannot fast due to illnesses also for them because Allah did not order what people cannot carry. They also “we would fast if we were healthy.” Most of them get sad because they cannot fast. But they should not be sad. Allah gives them the same, they receive the same rewards.

Some people do not fast although they are healthy. It is a weakness of belief (Iman) for sure. There are degrees of weakness in Iman. You cannot control your ego and you don’t fast, we understand. But if you openly eat in front of people then your sin doubles. Even the ill people do not eat in front of someone fasting. Non-Muslims used to live among us in the past, also in other countries, even they were ashamed to eat. But now unfortunately we see that they do not have any respect, forget eating, drinking, they also do forbidden acts openly in Ramadan in front of people. We do not know if they are aware it is Ramadan. What they do brings harm to themselves. No harm for Muslims or to Allah Azza wa Jalla. If you say I do this to Allah Azza wa Jalla it does not affect Allah. Neither goodness nor your badness can give any harm to Allah. Both goodness and badness are for you. Allah Azza wa Jalla is happy if you get any benefit, that’s all.

Allah Azza wa Jalla is happy that his servant obeyed, and protected himself from the fire, protected himself from a forbidden thing. For the others He’s “Arhamu r-rahimin” (the most merciful of the merciful12:64) Allah Azza wa Jalla is Merciful. He waits for them to repent. If they repent, Allah turns their sins into goodness. “We were disrespectful all these years. We did not obey Allah, we committed these sins. We ate and drank openly, we got drunk. We did bad things in the days of Ramadan Sharif. We repent, we are ashamed. May Allah forgive us.” If they say this Allah changes all their sins into goodness. We have such a Lord. Our Lord is Merciful. It is a shame to go against Him. You harm yourself. Because Allah Azza wa Jalla gave all the opportunities to go on the right path, so that He can put you into Paradise. You insist on being stubborn – “We want the hells” you say. Allah does not oppress anyone, you oppress yourself.

This is a month to be cleaned from badnesses. Inshallah we can leave any kind of faults, wrong doings. Both with intention and with this month’s blessings. It seems like a small fault but there are things we couldn’t free ourselves from, and we got captured by them. Especially this smoking issue. The days are long in this month, longest days of summer. You are able to spend 17-18 hours without eating, drinking, smoking. In the evening your ego is already crushed in 17 hours. The rest of the day if you resist smoking, in a few days you’ll be free of it with Allah’s permission. This is a big opportunity.

Like we said the days are long in Ramadan Sharif since couple of years but this year, shukur Allah, are the longest days. From beginning till end there is 5-10 minutes difference. This is a grant from Allah to us because the more difficult it is, the more Allah writes rewards for us. But shukur Allah we don’t have any difficulty. Allah Azza wa Jalla does not make it hard. Even the hottest years, when it is Ramadan, it gets cooler. People get scared – it is going to be long, it is going to be hot, I will be thirsty. That does not happen, thanks to Allah. So, it is a blessed month. Do not fear, with Allah’s mercy, with His grants you don’t feel the difficulties. Ramadan Sharif shows the human life. Even though it seems difficult, if you are obedient to Allah, all is well. We see everything good, because it comes from Allah. We don’t see it bad.

Life is also like that, because everything comes from Allah. The one, who accepts it and surrenders to Allah lives this life easily. Troubles, difficulties nothing can affect him. Ramadan Sharif is like that. Like we said even the longest days are so beautiful and easy. May Allah guide those people, who do not experience this beauty, so that they taste these beauties. What people search for is Allah’s way, the way the Prophet showed. Nothing else. It is not reading or writing, neither university nor school or anything else. This life will pass anyway. So you live it in a beautiful way. InshaAllah your akhirah will be prosperous.

Alhamdulillah, today first Juma from Ramadan. Holy day. Allah give, He gave, gift from Allah for Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam) and his Umma – Juma. And gift for his Umma also – Ramadan Sharif. Ramadan Sharif, fasting month. Fasting, it is light. Today, Juma also light. “Nurun ala Nur” (24:35). Light top of light. And light, what is, what benefit? Only to see around? No, because light to be light in your heart not only lighting around. From inside you must be lightening. When you have this light inside it gives you pleasure, it gives you happiness. And fasting giving for you light more and more and more. Fasting, worship – it is worship to fasting.

It is not only for Ummat Muhammad (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam). Ayat Karim: “Kutiba alaykumu s-siyam kama kutiba ala ladhina min qablikum” (2:183) In Ayat, saying:” It is obligatory for you, as it was for whole human being, since Adam (as).” Because when Adam (as). send him from Paradise to this world, he burn from sun. Because in Paradise, no sun, no hot weather, no cold weather, only very sweet weather. Everything, it is Paradise. It is name by Paradise, so somebody saying paradise here, meaning very nice thing, nothing can be wrong there. But when he come to dunya, sun it burn him and he become dark. Allah Azza wa Jalla ordered him:” Fast one day.” So, he fast. It was 13th of month. He become lighter. After second time He said: “Fast again.” He fast also and he become little bit lighter and third day, it was 15 of month, full month, full moon and he become normal. So, for this, his sons, some of them dark, some of them more light, some of them more light, like this.

But it is, Allah giving light with fasting. And these days, calling white days:13, 14, 15 it is big reward for who are fasting these days. Before obligatory in Ramadan, Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam) was ordering. Once he ordered Sayyidina Ali – he said if you fasting 13th, Allah give you 10.000 rewards. In 14th, if fast, you get 20.000 rewards. In 15th, you get 30.000 reward. Reward, Hassana. And it was like this – obligatory in Muharram, in other months but after coming to Medina, after one year become obligatory only Ramadan. And Ramadan, it was also for another nations also, but they are changing. They make it in winter and they add to 10 days, and after they add 10 days, making 50 days but also, they are by their ego, they are fasting. Fasting, normally you must not eat anything but they are mixing. And fast giving people big benefit.

We are seeing many people fasting Alhamdulillah. And Allah reward them by His Generosity. And there are people, they cannot fast – like ill people or pregnant or giving milk or, but they are, they like to fast but they cannot fast so Allah reward them also same like who are fasting. But there is people, not fasting even they are in good health and everything good but they are not fasting and they are eating, eating but this is not good for them. Even, there is people they don’t know even if it is Ramadan and they are drinking alcohol also in front of people in Ramadan. Old time, we was living with non-Muslim people, they was respecting our religion, they wasn’t eating in front of us in Ramadan. These days, these people, they are ignorant. Because they are clever they will know, this is for their benefit. We are nothing for us if whole world they eating. Alhamdulillah we are happy and we are not complaining. This is Allah gift for us and Allah not in need to anybody.

If whole world they are not fasting, nothing happen for Him. If they are fasting, also no benefit for Him but when somebody fasting Allah happy with him and He is giving from His Generous Treasure. But this people who are ignorant, they are not knowing what they are losing. They are poor people, because they are Judgment Day, they will be very poor, nothing on their pocket. And they are happy Alhamdulillah, they are not saying Alhamdulillah, “we are not fasting these days, very long days.” They said Ramadan, now it is the most long days. In Cyprus, maybe 17 or 18 hours. In London, 19 hours, in more up, 20, 21, 22 hours. Even there is place they are fasting but not but not important because Allah, He is rewarding us – as much long, as much Allah gives more reward for us, and this is important for us. We are not coming to eat and to be become fat. We are looking for scale. Must be 100 kilo, must be… We are now becomig 80 kilo, what is this? Because, we are animal, we will go to slaughter, we must be we must be, feed ourself?

This is ignorant people. But, who are not ignorant, it is not important physical body, only spiritual. As much you are fasting, as much it is long, as much it is difficult, this is make your ego, make you to be trained and you make your soul to be more powerful. When you feed yourself, you feed your animal, your ego, and Allah not happy with this. But also Allah, He is most Merciful and He is waiting these people to be regret, and to be, to ask forgiveness from Allah, repent and to ask forgiveness from Allah. And Allah He will reward them and change all their sins to be reward, hasanat. This is our Lord, Allah Azza wa Jalla, the most Merciful One and Most Generous, He is waiting, and He is not happy to put you in hell, waiting for you to repent and to ask forgiveness and to be, to come to right way. And He is happy with this. But, if you are want to go to hell, it is not from Allah, it is from yourself because you are following your ego, you following like catching you from nose and taking to hell, this ego and shaytan.

Allah not happy to send you there, only you take yourself by yourself because Allah, He not in need for your fasting, your worshipping or anything. Only for yourself you do this. And it is big honour for us to be reward by Allah Himself. He said “I am rewarding for fasting by Myself not writing with angel, or anyone. Only, I give from My Generosity for these people.” These people, they are beloved for Allah and for His Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam). Allah make us to be with these people and for Allah give hidaya (guidance), give good understanding for ignorant people to be find their benefit. Their benefit, and not only for them, because their family, their children, their brother, sister, all same thing. Maybe if this people coming to right way it will be benefit for all of them, for all of country.

Inshallah, barakat of Ramadan, Shahru r-Ramadan mubarak, to give us more spiritual power, more light, more happiness. And to keep us away from every badness, to from every bad people, who are following shaytan and his followers.

Shahru Ramadan

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Sheikh Mehmet Adil Al-Haqqani (Qaddas Allahu Sirruhul Azeez), Sohbat of the 18th of June, 2015, Lefke-Cyprus

2015-06-18_tr_ShahruRamadan_SMAs-salamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. Audhu billahi min ash-shaytani r-rajim. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim.

Tariqatuna s-sohbah, wa l-khayru fi jam’iyyah.

May the month of Ramadan be blessed. We reached beautiful months. The last of the 3 Holy Months, the month of Ramadan. We reached this holy month. Allah makes us reach to many Ramadans inshaAllah. With Islam’s honor and glory, with Allah’s beloved servants, together with Mahdi alaihi s-salam we reach InshaAllah. May the corruption in this world end inshaAllah. Only if Mahdi alaihi s-salam comes will people find peace.

The month of Ramadan is the sultan of all months. Allah Azza wa Jalla, our Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam) says in his hadith: “The beginning is a blessing, the middle is forgiveness, the end is to be free from hell.” For this reason it is the sultan of the months. It is a beautiful month, a month of worshiping. We also practice in other months – Rajab, Sha’ban but we do not pray fully. But in Ramadan we worship all day long. During whole day you are worshiping, you are fasting. Every minute, every second of it is written as a good deed for you by Allah Almighty. Allah gives its reward it is said. When you do a good deed, you are given 10 up to 700 good deeds by Allah Azza wa Jalla.

But fasting, He says “It belongs to Me, I give it.” Nobody can understand His gifts, grants blessings, benefits. People, when you speak about fasting with mindless people, they think it is a very difficult, hard worshiping. Shaitan shows it like that to people. “Afdalu l-amal ashaqquha” says our Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam). The best good deed, good action, is the hardest one. Fasting is also difficult, but it is a good worship. It is not a worship,that cannot be practiced. Everyone can easily make it except the ill people, travellers. Travellers may also fast if they want to but if it is too difficult, there is a permission not to. He can fast later. But if somebody just sitting saying “I cannot fast, I can not carry it.” – a healthy person does not have any excuse. Anyone can fast, as we said, except the sick people.

Allah created human beings, He knows what we can do, what we are able to do. Allah knows. He doesn’t tell you to put wings and fly. You cannot do that. You can fast. You can do any kind of worship. For this reason you must fast. The reward you get in return is so big that you will wish the whole year was Ramadan. That much reward, that much benefit is given. Not only your physical body but also your soul wants food. Fasting is its food. The relief you feel when you break your fast, nobody can feel that relief and comfort. This is the hadith of our Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam), there are two joyful moments for the fasting person – when he breaks the fast it is a beautiful moment. More beautiful than that is when he reaches Allah Azza wa Jalla. Because the gifts, the grants, that He will be giving will make him much happier. But when he breaks the fast or while he is fasting Allah Azza wa Jalla gives that beauty.


Ramadan mubarak for all of you. Alhamdulillah, we reached Ramadan. Allah make it to be for us many Ramadans also with nice peace and beautiful world and it only can be with Sayyidi l-Mahdi (alayhi salam) because people now they make it, create system who are not following Allah’s Order and it is satanic system it against Allah Order and Prophet’s teaching. Only with Sayyidi l-Mahdi will be inshallah. We hope inshallah, every time to be next Ramadan or next Eid al Adha to Mahdi (as) to come Inshallah.

Ramadan it is, Shahru Ramadan Allah Azza wa Jalla saying, calling this month. It is the month of worshipping There is three months also holy, they are coming together – Rajab, Sha’ban, Ramadan. But in Rajab, Sha’ban only sometimes you can fast. Not many people fasting and also not special praying but in Ramadan you are more nearly 24 hours worshiping, you are worshipping in daytime, nighttime also continuing, is good worshipping. You wake up for Sahur, Sahur also worshipping. Even Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam), he say to people you must wake up for Sahur, Sahur baraka meaning it is gift. Who are waking up for Sahur, they get gift from Allah to be everything more baraka meaning.

Even you see it is small thing but it is big thing. When Allah give baraka for something, very few thing it become enough for everybody, this is baraka. Like this it is 24 hours, one month, we are worshipping Alhamdulillah. For this, he said, it is the best month among 12 months, Ramadan. And it is Allah’s gift for the Ummat of Muhammad (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam). Because everything Allah reward. If you do something for ten times until seven hundred times. But, for Ramadan He said, “I am giving from My Generosity. Nobody, I don’t want to tell anybody what I give.” Allah, He is Generous and He will give from His endless Treasure inshallah. And Ramadan, first [1/3] of Ramadan, hadith, Rahma, Mercy it is Mercy. In middle, forgive, He is forgiving His people. Forgiveness for Muslims who fasting. And the end of Ramadan, Allah make you free from hell. You are not be in hell anymore. You’re in safety here and Hereafter and we are praising and loving the month of Ramadan because Allah make it in our heart and we are happy with this. And He give worshipping to be fasting.

Many people, shaytan make this fasting look like for them horrible, terrible. Very difficult to do it. It is not like this. Allah not ordering anything because He is the Creator, He create us, He know what we can do what we cannot do. And He said who are in health and not traveling they can fast but who are not fast, ill people. He give permission for them not to fasting but who was in health and he is staying not traveling, ordering for them to be fasting. And reward them, He said, for fasting people, there is two things nobody else have it. First of this, when you are break fast in Maghrib it is happiness, nobody know it except fasting people. Other one, for Akhira, when he will meet divine Presence and He will give him from endless Gift, he will be most happy one. And it is from happiness for Maghrib time maybe very small part from this Gift. Nobody in this world can have it except who are fasting and when breaking fast Maghrib time Allah show them. And it is benefit for body, body, physical body also. Very good for body and for spiritual, more and more good.

We must happy because it is for all of Muslim can do it. Poor or rich or middle -everybody can do it this worship because there is like Hajj or Zakat, maybe poor people cannot do it but this, it is for everybody. And it is very nice, you cannot tell people how it is nice. And people, they are ignorant. Many of them, they are afraid from fasting and we cannot do it. No, you can do, because Allah, He is ordering you and when you are not doing, coming on you sadness, darkness, illness. So, “sumu tasuhu”, Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam) he say, “Fast you be healthy” healthy meaning physical and spiritual inshallah

Don’t Imitate Them

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

Sultan Sheikh Mehmet Adil Al-Haqqani (QS), sohbat of the 13th of May, 2015.

As-salamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. 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 Mashaykhina, dastur, Sheikh Abdullah Faiz Daghestani, Sheikh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani. Tariqatuna as-sohbah, wa l-khayru fi jam’iyyah.

“Man tashabbaha bi qawmin fa huwa minhum” says our Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam). If you imitate a nation or group of people and want to resemble them, you will become one of them. That’s why our Prophet says to be a little different from non-Muslims. Let your Muslim-hood be seen. It was clear before where people belonged from their clothes and attitudes. People nowadays show it too but some people want more to imitate others. That is not good. Your identity should be seen. Resemble the beloved servants of Allah. The religion of Islam is the most perfect religion.

Imitating is not only by clothing. They are making up laws not existing in Islam. And our people like them. We don’t like that. They are bringing up an idea and we want to imitate that idea. This also is not nice. Allah has made the religion of Islam the highest and greatest. This religion is the highest from all aspects. There is no better than this. Because Allah Azza wa Jalla made it perfect. You can’t see any incompleteness in it. How is it that Islam doesn’t resemble others? There is tolerance in Islam; everyone can live as they wish.

You can’t make a non-Muslim to be Muslim. If he wants, he can become Muslim. If he doesn’t, he can keep his religion. He can live among Muslims. They say they swear at Muslims. Of course, if they did other than that they would have become Muslim themselves. Their lack of love towards Muslims is quite a normal thing. Muslims should accept them as they are because if they loved Muslims, if they loved our Prophet, if they loved us, they would have become Muslim. Therefore, these people are against Muslims all over the world. But when honored with Islam, whatever the man has done, it will be as if he didn’t do it. Because Islam starts from that moment keeping his account and recording his book. Before that, he has already committed the biggest of sins by making shirk, not recognizing and not wanting Allah.

Therefore, there is no issue of him loving or not loving us. There are much bigger issues. But if you say a non-Muslim is doing this and that to us, that’s normal for him. We are not like him. No Muslim could live for hundreds of years in their countries. Catholics, Orthodox and Protestants couldn’t get along with each other. They didn’t tolerate it. They didn’t leave any Muslims there and exiled and sent them away. In our Islamic state during the time of Khalifat, in the Ottoman Empire, thousands of nations were living. They had hundreds of religions according to their minds. No one could interfere them. They didn’t interfere unless they were Muslims. And Muslims had certain principles for not making fitna. This is it. “Don’t imitate anyone.” it says.

Muslims don’t go out into the streets to march and scream. Sheikh Effendi used to be very angry at this. Muslims can’t go out into the streets and shout and scream, if something happens. You should go to the mosques and pray. As we say, there are many things. Whatever people, who have lost their way do, sometimes our Muslims are imitating them. Then, as we said, like in hadith of our Prophet, you become one of them. If you say you are Muslim and shout, you’re not counted as Muslim, you’re  counted as one of them. A Muslim follows with adab the way ordered by Allah and shown by our Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam). He doesn’t imitate. A Muslim is a dignified person with adab, not a loose one. You shouldn’t resemble them – not only by clothing, but actually by sense of logic and behaviour.

“Don’t resemble non-Muslims and those who have lost their ways” it says. Beware don’t imitate them and don’t like what is theirs. And there’s no need to act against them. We don’t accept, don’t like and don’t want it. Most people feel disgusted when they come across and see screaming and yelling somewhere. Whoever it may be, people don’t like it. Therefore, it’s wrong to scream and shout. It is said in Qur’an as well “Don’t raise your voices”. “Don’t raise your voice above our Prophet’s.” When you scream… Our people sometimes shout out takbir too much. This is not nice either. Act with adab. It’s not good to do it everywhere because you will put yourself under the bad tongue of people and cause others to hate or curse you. What we preach is the way of adab, this is the way of tariqa.

Allah Azza wa Jall He said in Qur’an … no. Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) in hadith he said, Man tashabbaha bi qawmin fa huwa minhum. Who look like some nations, or some people, who try to be like them, imitate them, he is from them. Of course this before it was for outside looking. Many people in the old time, every nation, every people from their custom you know from where they are, which religion, which country. So, it was not good to imitate [those] who are not from Muslim people. There must be a difference between you and others. But these days it is more important for not imitate them or not like them – to [not] look like them, inside, innerly.

How they have bad ideas for whole human beings They thought they are doing good but their ideas [are] not good. So, we mustn’t listen to them or to imitate them, to make some idea like them. Especially, people [that] they are angry. These people they are making many trick about Islam. They are making, they are swearing for Islam, for our precious, holy, holy thing for Islam. They are saying bad word about this and we, our people they are attacking them. They are doing [the] same thing. They are imitating them and they are coming in trick for what they done these people. In Islam it is [a] religion for, the best religion of Allah. “[The] last religion [is] Islam” He said ‘the complete religion.’

So these people, when they are saying bad thing about Islam, bad thing about Muslim, bad thing about every holy thing for us, it is normal. It is normal, we mustn’t be angry. Why? Because if they are accepting and they are loving our holy things they must be Muslim. So, when they are not accepting, they can do what they do. So we are not [to] imitate them, and be make the same thing for them. Even [if] there is many crazy people, they are swearing for some Prophet also. We accept all Prophet[s]. So when these people they are doing every[thing] they can do, every bad thing, they can do what they like because we are not responsible for them. Only we are responsible [for those] who are in Islam. But other people they are, they are making the biggest sin to be, [to] put partner with Allah or not accept Allah or they are doing, worshipping idols. They are doing anything outside of Islam they are, this is the most important and the biggest sin.

There is hadith: It is no sin behind ‘kufr’ (…) unbelief. Unbeliever, it is the biggest sin. It is the biggest sin because when these people, if they doing the worst thing before Islam and [then] they accept Islam, only Allah asking for them after Islam. Before Islam all this [is] forgiven for them. So for this these, our people, they are imitate them and they are try to do same what they do. We know they are not, they don’t have any ‘musamiha’ (tolerance). No tolerance. We know this, and we see everywhere in the world they are doing the worst not taking nations from earth. They not leaving any Muslims in Europe after 100 years. Not leaving any, only this last century the Muslim come to Europe also. But before, No!

But also, it is not, not bad for us, because it is normal. We cannot say “how they can do this, how can they do that?” It is normal because they are outside of belief. So we are only must imitate – not imitate them. Only following Islam. Islam, because it is accepting in our country [for there] to be people with another religion. They are, they have right, they have to be in safety in our country to work and worship what they like. Only we saying, we invite them to Islam. If they accept, OK accept. If not accept it is, they are free. It is not, now it is this. Since Prophet (saws) – same. It was like this. In Iran there was worshipping Majusi, they worshipping fire. And there was Jewish, there was Christian there was many thing. In Ottoman time, same.

Even, once when Fatih Sultan Mehmet who conquered Istanbul, he was going through Europe and opening. There was a Serbian king and he was between Ottoman and between Hungary. Hungary it was Catholic and the Orthodox – Serbian. And he sent some messenger to ask how maybe, because Orthodox and Catholic, it was like enemy, more than Muslim! And he try to ask maybe if he [can] help this Hungarian against Turk. They will be, there is peace between them. He sent for this king. He said to him ‘If we help you, how you will be treating us?’ He said, “We will try to finish all this Orthodox and then crush all your yes, everything for [the] church and..” And he asked for Sultan Mehmet. He said, “We are, the religion, Islam. We invite people to Islam. If they accept, accept. If not accept, they are free. We will leave their Church and what they worshipping. We can be in the mosque.”

It was like this, but we are, what we say from beginning. It is normal for non-believers. We cannot imitate them. They must imitate us. We have the adab of Prophet (saws) and teaching of Allah Azza wa Jalla and tariqat they are teaching this. These days there are many people they forget this. They try to imitate what they done, the worst thing. Allah make us safe from these people.

A Logical Investment

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

Mawlana Sheikh Mehmet Adil (QS), sohbat, March 17, 2015.


As-salamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

Madad ya RasulAllah. 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 RasulAllah, madad ya Mashaykhina, Mawlana Sheikh Abdullah Faiz Dagestani, Mawlana Sheikh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani, Qutub Osman Efendi Hz. madad.

• Allah Azza wa Jalla created this world as a tool, a means for investing in akhira.

Shukr to Allah, we are meeting again after several months in presence of the Saint. There are various people, but these people, the saints have the power of attraction. He can bring people from all over the world here. He doesn’t leave it empty and makes it full, shukr to Allah. The burden of this world is keeping people busy. People should actually think about akhira. Allah Azza wa Jalla created this world as a tool, a means for investing in akhira.

It is not logical when a man forgets the main purpose and falls for the tool. He should differentiate between them. If he follows his ego, forgets about the main target and falls for unnecessary things, then suffers from it, he will have lost and in the end go empty handed. There have been many people, billions of people since Adam, alaihi salam. Most of them forgot about the main purpose and fell for unnecessary things. So too with people nowadays. This is important to put into their minds.

Allah Azza wa Jalla gave thousands of examples in Qur’an, and in the hadith of our Prophetﷺ, and in old books. Here is another big example, if you ask people about the richest person in the world now, everyone will know his name, they will say this is the richest man. Who is the richest person of all times in this world? Qarun (Korah). Qarun was a relative of Hz. Musa. He probably was his uncle, a husband of his aunt. He was a close relation of Musa, alaihi salam.

Allah Azza wa Jalla told Musa, alaihi salam to write the Torah in gold. Musa, alaihi salam, told Allah Azza wa Jalla “I don’t have a penny, how can I write in gold?” Allah Azza wa Jalla had given the science of alchemy to Musa, alaihi salam. He turned some element into gold and wrote the Torah. Qarun was a poor man with children and he was a good person. He was praying day and night, fasting, worshipping, doing everything he could. Praying until morning and the children were nearly dying of hunger. Musa, alaihi salam felt upset at this as nothing seemed bad. He was truly a good person.

Musa, alaihi salam then thought as he was such a good man, his children should be in comfort. So he taught him alchemy . When Qarun learned it, he started making money. As the money increased, he forgot the main target, he fell for the tool. He forgot the target and ran after money. He collected so much money that it took 70 camels just to carry the keys of his treasures. He had one thousand guards with golden swords, a thousand men and a thousand women. His richness could not be imagined. He was the richest person of all times in this world. Since Allah created Adam, alaihi salam there has been no man richer than him.

Musa, alaihi salam told him to give zakat for his wealth. First he thought about it, then he decided it’s not possible and told Musa, alaihi salam, he would give it, because if he said no, he would fall in the eyes of his nation. Allah Azza wa Jalla is showing something in Qur’an. Some people with a weak ego would wish they had been as rich as Qarun. Though Musa, alaihi salam spoke to Qarun, he objected, saying he had made everything from his science, collecting so much money. He said “Why should I give zakat?” Musa, alaihi salam was a majestic prophet, he became angry at Qarun.

Qarun realised that because he wouldn’t give up he would make a trap to belittle Musa alaihi salam in front of people so that he may be released from the word he had given. He went to a prostitute and offered to pay her if she claimed that Musa alaihi salam had committed adultery with her. He gave her so much money that the woman agreed. She was doing everything for money anyway. Musa, alaihi salam, was giving a sohba, majestically making a khutba to his nation, telling them not to rob, not to kill, not to commit adultery etc. and that, there is big punishment for adultery.

Qarun got up and asked if it applied to him as well. He said, “If I do it, I will be punished too”. Qarun said, “There is a woman here who claims you committed adultery with her. Stand up, woman, confess”. Allah Azza wa Jalla certainly protects His Prophet. The woman got up and said, “This man paid me so much money so I may accuse you. He’s lying. Musa, alaihi salam is clean. He didn’t do anything. This is the liar”. Musa, alaihi salam struck his stick from anger, and the earth split open taking half of the people down. He begged repentance but Musa alaihi salam didn’t listen, in his majesty, he struck again. The earth swallowed him up with all his people.

All his money and wealth went under the ground as well. Sheikh Efendi said that it is still sinking. All his treasure is going deeper and deeper. Therefore, some people say they’re looking for Qarun’s treasure. There’s nothing like this. They won’t find it. This is a big example for people that this man could live million years with that treasure. But as we said, despite seeing so many miracles in his short life, he was defeated and destroyed by his ego. His money brought him no benefit.

There are thousands of stories like this. People listen but most of them don’t take a lesson from it. Insha’Allah, may we be the ones who take a lesson in order to not forget our true target. The target is to reach Allah. You still live, rich or poor. Allah gives provisions to everyone. Nobody dies while his provision is appointed. If a man dies of hunger, then his rizq has finished, that much was written for him. He dies of hunger. And no one lives longer by eating more. One can die from overeating as well.

Allah Azza wa Jalla said to Musa, alaihi salam, “O Musa, this man asked for mercy from you and you didn’t accept it. He asked 4 times. If he asked Me sincerely once, I would forgive him”. There is big wisdom there. That person has forgotten Allah even in that position. Whether he was tricking for himself to be rescued, or something else, he forgot Allah. Even with a trick, Allah is merciful. He would accept and forgive. No one has the mercy Allah has. The Mercy of Allah is huge and endless. No matter how much you sin and make mistakes, Allah will forgive. It is good news.

If Allah was merciful to the nation of Musa, alaihi salam, He could be a thousand times more to the nation of our Prophetﷺ. During ancient times, in times of Musa, alaihi salam, if someone did wrong, Allah’s anger would cover the whole village. Now if a whole village does wrong and one man does right, everyone will be forgiven and shown mercy for his honor. At least, blessings won’t stop in this world. Therefore, we see Jewish people now, wherever they go, they stick to their religion, but ours, not so much. They treat it very carefully because then Allah had ordered so to Musa, alaihi salam and they follow him ever since.

However they’re still forgetting the main thing that Musa, alaihi salam had said about our Prophetﷺ. They didn’t accept him because he wasn’t from them. They came up to Madina so that he would be one of them. Even then he didn’t and they didn’t accept. Of course, some accepted. But the main majority didn’t accept. They had the greatest scholar Ka’ab al-Ahbar. When he became Muslim, he said “When they come to our Prophet, ask them about me, what kind of person I am. Then after they speak about me, tell them I became Muslim.”

So they came to speak and the talk reached this Sahaba. When asked about him, they said he was one of their greatest scholars. His fathers and grandfathers were from very good people. They described him so well, then our Prophet said “You described him as a good man. If he believes in me, will you believe too?” They said it was impossible and started swearing at this man. They accept truth as they like. They don’t accept the real truth. They have made a picture and they follow it. They follow their ego. It is a virtue to accept the truth. May Allah make us among those accepting the truth and truthfulness, insha’Allah. May Allah be pleased with you.

Wa min Allahi tawfeeq, al-Fatiha.
