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.

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.


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

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

Laylatu-l Qadr, Laylatu-l Qurb

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi (QS), Sohbat, 3rd August, 2013.


There has never been anyone who opened his hands (for help) and returned from the Sultan’s door empty-handed. Sahhih ‘akidataka- Correct your belief.

Welcome to you, O yaran Shah Mardan. O holy one! May you teach us, we came to be taught by you. If you hit the right side of an untrained donkey, it goes left. If you hit its left side, it goes right. It is not trained. There should be a training. Madad Ya Rijal Allah, madad Ya Shah Mardan. O yaran Shah Mardan. May we be beautiful. May we be sweet. May we be majestic. They don’t use a mangy donkey at the door of the Sultan- Sultan uses a Kuhaylan (Arabian horse). Our Janab-i Mawla is the source of Lutf-ul Karam (Generous Grants) and we ask to be majestic, not miskeen (lazy & helpless). We are at the door of such a Sultan that being miskeen is not suitable, being majestic is suitable. One should know this. One should learn this.

Yes, the Sultan does not use a skinny horse at his door. He has a kuhaylan that scares the lions- the Sultan- that even a lion is afraid from it. Who can’t scare shaytan is in the category of trash. Madad Ya RijalAllah, madad Ya Shah Mardan. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Your yaran are your admirers. Slowly, Al ‘ilmu bi’t-ta’allum. Knowledge is gained day by day, no one can learn in one day all at once. Bi’t ta’allum- wa l-hilmu bi’t ta’allum. Is it not like this? Come in, welcome to you the ahbab of Shah Mardan- who are filled with the muhabbat/ love of Shah Mardan, who ask Nur from Shah Mardan – welcome. You came to such a door that has no equal, no like.

Go ahead O Shah Mardan. We are weak servants. ‘Abiduka dhu’afa, qawwi dha’fana bi Quwwatika Ya Rabb. We are weak servants. “Wa Khuliqa Al-‘Insanu Da’ifaan” (4:28). Is it not a Verse? Man was created weak. Qawwi dha’fana fi Ridak! O our Lord, may You remove our weakness. O Shah Mardan, may our weakness be lifted off us. May we be like the kuhaylan of the Sultan, may we not be in the category of miskeen donkeys that go and after a while fall down. May we be a kuhaylan that is worthy of the Sultan. Masha Allah. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. May you go ahead and explain to us, so that we understand. Yu’allimuhum, ta’allam wa ‘allim. Even if you don’t know, learn and teach. What should you learn? Well, what did we learn? To plow a field. What did we learn? To shepherd. What did we learn? To be a doorman. There are 360 crafts in dunya. Who doesn’t believe it can count, right S. Mehmet Effendi? There are all kinds of talents. What is the best of talents? Go ahead O Shah Mardan, your yaran are your admirers. Let them hear it. The best of the talents is adab.

No one has managed to draw close to his Lord by taking a way other than adab. Shah-i Jehan- our Master, the Sultan (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Addabani Rabbi- My Lord taught me adab”. And it continues- “Wa qarrabani- and brought me close – nearness to Allah, my Lord taught me this (Adab). I didn’t learn it from anyone else. Addabani Rabbi- He taught me the adab for being close to His Essence/Dhat-u Ajalli ‘Ala”. It is the assembly of Shah Mardan’s lovers- no one has ever come empty and returned empty from that assembly. Everyone has received a share. May we take a share too. Khudh naseebak/Take your share. Allahumma qawwi dha’fi fi Ridak. We are weak our Lord.

There are lions of Yours who can remove our weakness. There are holy servants of Yours who can teach us adab. Each adab is a level and there is no end to the levels. Who are in the category of donkeys continue with their donkey-ness. They don’t ask to be a horse, don’t ask to be a Man either. “My situation is good like this, I am comfortable” they say. They carry burdens and they bray too. They scared even the lion when they brayed: “What a majestic animal is this?” it scared the lion like this. You see? Well, the lion has never heard a voice like that in its life, it got astonished: “What a majestic creature is this that it even scared me”. Don’t bray like the braying of donkeys. No, be like the roaring of lions.

Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Allahu Dhu-l Jalal, Al-Yazdan didn’t create you to be a donkey. Allah Almighty didn’t create you as a beast of burden-know this, learn this. Al Khaliqu-l Yazdan Allah Almighty didn’t create you to be the donkey of dunya. Allah Almighty didn’t create you, saying “carry the burden that I load you down in dunya”. Allah Almighty didn’t make you the animal of dunya. Don’t forget. But what did shaytan turn the people into? May it be far from us, it turned the people into the animals of dunya. Shaytan made the people animals of dunya. And Man – “Wa Khuliqa Al-‘Insanu Da’ifaan”- was created weak. The meaning of weak is gentle- he is created gentle. He is not created for the burdens donkeys carry. Dunya- dunya is the burden of shaytan. It looks for someone “who should I load up?” It wants to load it onto Man who is gentle. Man is not a porter.

“Wa Humilati Al-‘Ardu Wa Al-Jibalu” (69:14). Is it a Holy Verse? “Humilat”, bore the burden but that burden is a burden that gives honour. And Man is honoured with such an honour that no one can be above that honour. Allah Almighty placed His Amanat/Trust on him. Man bore the Amanat that neither Heavens nor Earths could bear. It was offered to the mountains & stones “Who will bear this Amanat?” They said “O Lord, forgive us. Forgive us, we can’t do it”. Who did it? Who did it, who took that burden? “Wa Hamalaha l-‘Insanu” (33:72). Man bore it. Man didn’t take the Amanat for carrying fertilizer. There is such an honour for Man, that mountains, stones are offered to bear it but the mountains, stones said “We can’t accept it, we can’t bear it”. O Man, know your honour. Come in O seekers of Shah Mardan, who want to take faydh/benefit from him – listen. Know your honour. If Man knew his honour, it would be peaceful & quiet on earth. If Man knew his honour no one would insult one another, no one would oppress one another, no one would look down on another. This is the honour of Man. Get used to this O those who wander around claiming to be Men but are not aware of humanity.

Today’s humanity is not aware of humanity. The Bible, Torah, Zabur and the Holy Quran are sent to the people to teach them the level of humanity. “Wa Ma ‘Allamnahu sh-Shi’ra” (36:69). “We didn’t teach him poetry”. “Wa ‘Allamnahu Min Ladunna ‘Ilmaan” (18:65). We granted him a knowledge from Ladun/from Us. Our Master, the Sultan of the Prophets- Salawatullahi wa salamu alaik- knew his mission. And when he knew his mission, he learned what was necessary for him to fulfill that mission. “Addabani Rabbi. My Lord taught me adab”. Allah Almighty taught him how he should behave. Allah Almighty taught the Master of Creation (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam). “‘Allamani Rabbi” (12:37). Addabani Rabbi fa’ahsana ta’dibi. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Yes. Yawmun jadeed, rizqun jadeed.

O Shah Mardan, your knowledge is a jewel. O people, take from that jewel. And each Prophet also came with a kind of jewel. The jewel Prophet Jesus brought is different. The jewel Prophet Moses brought is different and the jewel Prophet Solomon brought is different. What is what Prophet Solomon brought? Innahu min Sulaymana wa innahu Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. (27:30) The great Nabi, Prophet Solomon, from whose azamat/ greatness Heavens & earth would tremble, he also brought- he brought an amanat/ trust to mankind. “Innahu min Sulaymana wa innahu Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim”. There is an amanat, there is a jewel that each Prophet brought to make Men draw near to his Lord. To draw near to his Lord – this is the goal of the Men, to gain nearness to Allah. We want nearness to Allah. What else should we want? There is nothing for us with the Kings of this time.

For us, a nearness – such a nearness that it happens, its tahqiq/reality happens one night a year. On one night a year, how does a servant draw near to Allah Almighty? Its definition comes- the Laylatu-l Qadr. On the Laylatu-l Qadr, when that manifestation takes place, everything is in sajda. O Lord, may You not deprive us of that sajda. May we make sajda for You our Lord. May we dive into Your Nur O Lord. Grant us strength O Lord and we will raise Your banners. We will destroy the banners of the enemy of mankind. We acknowledge the flag of azamat the Prophet of the end of times brought and we run to be under it. Sahibu-l Liwa Al Hamd- the flag of Praise belongs to our Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam). In dunya and in akhirah also his flag will be called, raised and all Prophets will run to be under it. May Allah grant us honour & in dunya also may we be under that Liwa Al-Hamd which the Glorious Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam) carries.

May we be dressed with the level of the honour of humanity. Leave the fighting. Leave the savagery. The beauty and elegance of Man- “Wa la-qad karramna Bani Adam” (17:70). Don’t debase the children of Adam who Allah honoured and exalted. This is in the Bible, in Torah, in Zabur too; it is in all the books. Prophet Adam was crowned with this crown of happiness, with this crown of honour in Paradise. Try to keep it. All of us have it but shaytan drives people in the opposite way. O our Lord, You have all these fresh and beautiful ways.

It is tonight which is the Laylatu-l Qadr, the famous. It is a manifestation. Once that manifestation is opened, whatever is there standing, falls down in sajda. Even the ants are in sajda. Al-Azamatu Lillah, wa l-‘Izzatu Lillah, wa l-Jabarut Lillah. May Allah open it for you. May He open our hearts. What beauties are there, what beauties are there, what honours are there. Yes, when that “Innahu min Sulaiman” came, that Bismillah brought so much to the Queen of Sheba. It is the Bismillah from Sulaiman. When it is recited upon the order coming from Rabbu-l Izzat you can’t describe or explain the rank that comes with it, S. Mehmet Effendi.

For this, let us say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. And we gain honour, we gain strength, we gain beauty. May we not be rejected from the Door of Acceptance of Rabbul Izzat. What night is it, the Laylatu-l Qadr? It is equal to “Alfi Shahr/1000 months”- which month, in which scale, which time is it? We can’t define it. Masha’ Allahu kana, wa ma lam yasha’ lam yakun. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. The arena is all yours. May you teach and we learn.

Tawfiq/success is from Allah Almighty. Let us say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim and march. If you say it & march, there will be no closed doors left in front of you. There will be no creature left that does not respect you. Say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim and blow on yourself. They don’t teach it because they worship shaytan. They worship idols, they worship imitated things. Leave these and make sajda in the Presence of Rabbu-l Izzat Who created you. Everything is in sajda on the Laylatu-l Qadr. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Wa Lillah’il Hamd.

In the Middle of the Sea

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi (qs), Sohbat, 13th July, Ramadan 2013.


As-Salam alaikum ayyuhal yaran. O yaran of Shah Mardan. Marhaba. Welome to you. You came with khair and may you find khair/goodness. May we find khair. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Your yaran are your admirers. Ya Rabbi, You created us beautiful. Shukur to You our Mawla. He (swt) created Man the most beautiful in all creation. Our Allah, our Subhan, our Sultan. May our hearts open. May Shah Mardan send us power. Our assembly is a spiritual assembly. What is the title of a spiritual assembly? It is Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim – A spiritual assembly. Man has spirituality as well as, a body that belongs to dunya. “We should prefer the spiritual side” says Shah Mardan. The spiritual side- spiritual side is a pearl, is a diamond. What is outside of that assembly are the things that fill the toilets. The people…

Let Shah Mardan go ahead now & we slowly learn from him. Al ‘ilmu bi’t-ta’allum. Ta’allamu fa innal ‘ilma Nurun. Learn – learn knowledge that is Nur. Knowledge is Nur, gives Nur. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. What Allah Wills happens and what he doesn’t Will, doesn’t happen. Grant us power and make our assembly be spiritual, O Shah Mardan. We are not created for dunya. Here, this is the important point- We are not created for dunya. Go ahead O Shah Mardan, for Whom are we created? If we are created for dunya, we are animals. Animals have no honour. We are not created for dunya. We are created for our Lord- the Rabbu-l ‘Arshu-l Azim, the Subhan Allah. “Wa Ma Khalaqtu l-Jinna Wa l-‘Insa ‘illa Li ya’buduni”(51:56) Haqq SubhanaHu wa Ta’ala says. Here, Shah Mardan starts the dictation. What he means by ‘this dictation’ is, that he starts supporting, giving strength to our spiritualities. We are in need of this. Madad Ya RijalAllah.

We are not created for dunya. It is a wrong idea; it is a thought that is not true. Man is not created for dunya. (Mawlana sings) “Al-Khaliqu l-Yazdan created you – The Mighty Creator, Al-Khaliqul Jabbar, created you for service in khilqat. Man is created for service. Rabbu-l Izzat dresses a new rank for each service. Here, Shah Mardan Hz informs us of what Man is created for. If our mission is to eat and drink… O Shah Mardan, go ahead. The disciples of the Prophet Jesus said: “May a table from Heavens come down for us”. All their concern and thoughts were after the table. “Do you have no faith? He said. But let me see it that my heart may be at rest”(2:260) Look, these are the disciples of Prophet Jesus. What did they ask for? “May a table come down for us”. The table you asked for from Heavens does not come down from Heavens. It is on earth.

What do you seek from the Malakut/Heavens? You asked for a table, which offers eating and drinking to satisfy your animal being. Shame on you. What are we? You should be aware of what you ask. You should be aware of what you are also. Only animals are just concerned with eating and drinking. Eating & drinking is not the honour of al-insan al-kamil (the perfect man). Al-insan al-kamil’s whole concern is not about eating, drinking or dressing up. Al-insan al-kamil. “Wa Ma Khalaqtu l-Jinna Wa l-‘Insa ‘Illa Liya’buduni”(51:56). “Liya’buduni”. Allahu Akbarul Akbar. You are Subhan. “(I created Men and Jinn so that) they acknowledge Me, they know Me, they tasdiq/affirm My Sultanate and perform service in My Sultanate- they attain to the honour of serving in My Sultanate; they serve Me. I didn’t create them for serving this dunya”. Amantu BiLlah. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Allah did not create us from the category of those who have no concern other than eating & drinking. Allah Allah.

There are all these creatures – their only concern is eating & drinking. (Mawlana sings) “Al- Khaliqu-l Yazdan created you for service”. Shame on us! Janab-i Mawla, Khaliqu-l Yazdan created you for..” says Shah Mardan who speaks from Heavenly knowledge – (Mawlana sings) “Al-Khaliqu-l Yazdan created you for service”. Our minds are corrupted from the beginning, Shaykh Mehmet Effendi. He (swt) created you for service. Allahu Dhu-l Jalal, Who is the Absolute Owner of the everlasting, never-ending Sultanate, created you for service. Allahu Akbar. What a great honour! The way Prophets show people to follow, S.Mehmet Effendi, is the way of service. If the Prophet, alayhi Salatu was-Salam, was concerned about his belly, he could have set tables, eaten & then got busy with tables again. But that was not his concern. Huuu. (M.sings) “He created you for service”. This is the voice of Malakut (Heavens).

Go ahead O Shah Mardan. He (swt) created you for service. For which service? Did He create you to build houses, to build villages, to enjoy dunya? O shameless, no mind, no understanding people! Shame on the people, to what do they attribute the wisdom of their creation? To eating and drinking. And in the end, to the toilet – to fill the toilet. Allah SubhanaHu wa Ta’ala made you responsible for the highest service. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. “He created you for service”. Service. Service for whom? Service for whom? Not for the service of little kids or animals. But for Al-Khaliqu-l Yazdan, for the One Allah, Shah Mardan says repeatedly. That Shah Mardan who is the Shah of Oceans says repeatedly – “Your service is not for dunya”. Your service is – Al-Khaliqu l-Yazdan Allahu Dhu-l Jalal created you for service”. He (swt) appointed us for His Own service. Astonishing. And what are we doing? We do the service of the donkey or horse we ride – Let us eat the best, dress the best, go to the best places. Man is not created for this.

Go ahead O Shah Mardan. “Khaliqu-l Yazdan created you for service”. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa Lillahi-l Hamd. Say this and see how your life changes – experience the taste and honour. O ignorant Man! “‘Innahu Kana Zalumaan Jahulaan”(33:72). Is it like this? Man is jahul and zalim at the same time. Zalum meaning very unjust, Jahul meaning very ignorant. Do we have a school to teach us, to speak to us about Rabbu-l Izzat, or about how we should serve, or about Whom we should serve? “Well, we have physical education, sports classes for the children”. What benefit does it give? Half of the people on earth became crazy for the ball (games). May the ball remove the ones with this mentality. The whole world stands and people fight each other for a ball game. Well, putting what we call a ball, in the shape of a sphere in a field – putting a football and applying all our power, all our thoughts, all our life, all our mission to it- what kind of a thing is this? “‘Innahu Kana Zalumaan Jahulaan”. Men are oppressors and very ignorant at the same time. The whole world rises for the news. Of what? This sports club had a striking victory against the other. What is its benefit? What did you gain? What did you learn? What did you do?

Everything that belongs to dunya is filthy to the extent that you can’t even look at it. Approach the assembly of Shah Mardan, O yaran of Shah Mardan- O holy one, O who seek the way to the assembly of the holy ones. Look for it. This dunya is not created for playing ball, for the people to enjoy, or to eat & drink. Change your way of thinking. Tawba Ya Rabbi. Khaliqu-l Yazdan created you for service. Allahu Dhu-l Jalal created you for service. What else do you serve? Football! This club, that… The huge city of Istanbul rises up with this. Your minds are not even as big as a bird. A bird at least flies by itself and goes around. What about you? “And we are running after football” they say. You, who are the most honoured creature, is your job playing football? Shaytan made the world go crazy with football. It did that and then set the people against each other with the assertion – “You are ahead & I am behind?” They don’t accept.


Astaizu BiLlah, what did Pharaoh say to the Prophet Moses? Shaykh Mehmet Effendi, pay attention to this Holy Verse. “‘In Turidu ‘illa ‘An Takuna Jabbaran Fi l-‘Ardi Wa Ma Turidu” Ya Musa.(28:19) You want to be a jabbar/tyrant on earth? Look at this Holy Verse, the claim of tyranny. There is the dirty ego in people, where does it drive us to? Pharaoh describes it- Ya Musa, you want to be a tyrant on earth – “‘In Turidu ‘Illa ‘An Takuna Jabbaran Fil-‘Ardi”. What it means with jabbar, Shaykh Mehmet Effendi, is the person who has power over everyone. Pharaoh – his attribute was that, there should be no one like him. They play ball & claim “We should be the first”. They play other games and say “We should be number one”. It is not suitable for mankind to play ball. “‘In Turidu ‘Illa ‘An Takuna Jabbaran”. O Moses, do you want to be a tyrant, like Pharaoh claims to be a tyrant? “‘In Turidu ‘Illa ‘An Takuna Jabbaran Fil- ‘Ardi”. It says “Your claim is…” It also means dictatorship.

“‘In Turidu ‘Illa ‘An Takuna Jabbaran”. If your (Musa) claim is to rule the world, I had this claim before you” Pharaoh says. He thought Prophet Musa’s invitation was the same as his invitation. He, himself, said “I am Pharaoh. You should worship me. I am the Jabbar. I can burn, destroy”. You can burn, destroy and then you cry in the middle of the sea: Amantu bi Rabbi Bani Israil. In the end you say, “I also believe in the God of Israil”. There are many like this. All the claims are about this, Shaykh Mehmet. Pharaoh says to Prophet Moses, “‘In Turidu ‘Illa ‘An Takuna Jabbaran Fi l-‘Ardi”. He means “You want to rule the earth like me?”. Allah Allah. To where does Man’s dirty ego drive him? The helper of the dirty ego is shaytan. It mounted the necks of the people and people say “I am. I am. There can’t be anyone above me”.

The “potin” (shoe in Turkish) who is called Putin says “I am the best Potin”. The man in America, originally African, who can’t even handle small things, says: “You can’t do anything! I have all the power in my hand”. What is the benefit? Why do you keep that power in your hand? Do you mean to make dunya better or to destroy the people? Why do you hold it? These people are Allah’s creation. Their hands are tied- they are madhlum / oppressed people. They only think about their food. You captured these people and drove them into the fire of war. For what? “I am the number one”. And Potin says “No, I am”. “‘In Turidu ‘Illa ‘An Takuna Jabbaran Fi l-‘Ardi”. Pharaoh’s address to Prophet Moses: “Do you want to be a tyrant?” The characteristic of today’s people is tyranny. He(swt) didn’t create us to be tyrants.

Come to your senses. “‘In Turidu ‘Illa ‘An Takuna Jabbaran Fi l-‘Ardi”. “I may rule every part of the earth and do as I like. This is what I want”. That attribute belongs to Allah Almighty, not to you! But Prophet Moses was told this. Pharaoh thinks that Prophet Moses is also after dunya, in the dunya hunt like himself. “‘In Turidu ‘Illa ‘An Takuna Jabbaran Fi l-‘Ardi”. People have become ignorant, they have become ignorant. “‘In Turidu ‘Illa ‘An Takuna Jabbaran Fi l-‘Ardi”. “You want to be a tyrant who rules the earth Ya Musa?” says Pharaoh to Sayyidina Musa. Hasha, thumma kalla. His (S.Musa) way is the way of Allah. What is the way of the Bani Israil now, still? Their way is tyranny. They are a small country like this but they say “I can rule over the whole world”. Of what value is the dunya you want to rule? Take dunya & put it on your head. Other nations follow them too whether they like it or not. One man appears, they call him “dictator”. What is his profession? Democracy. He cheats the people with democracy and succeeds in his tyranny this way. All the world’s people are like this.

“‘In Turidu ‘Illa ‘An Takuna Jabbaran Fi l-‘Ardi”. “O Moses, do you want to be ruler on earth under one dictatorship?” Pharaoh says this. Well, it is Pharaoh’s own profession. But Prophet Moses’ profession is not this. Prophet Moses is for collecting people in the Presence of Allah and making his nation gain honour in Allah Almighty’s service. But they ran away from it. They said “No, we can’t follow Moses”. “Who do you follow?” Al ‘ijl, the calf, (2:51)- this is the mentality of Bani Israil. They say “Al ‘ijl”, “we have a calf made from gold and we want this”. What does it tell you? Moooo! Look at the mentality of Bani Israil. They preferred it and what did it say? Moooo. They call out, saying “We have a calf of gold”. Shaytan goes on your golden calf 1000x a day & makes you eat it. Tawba AstaghfiruLlah. Come to the right way! Keep your honour.

Man’s honour is in serving His Lord. O our Lord, may You accept us. It is Ramadan Sharif. It is Ramadan Sharif. It is the holy month in which the Quran Azimu sh-Shan descended. It came to bring us honour, to dress us with honour. We should show respect for it. “We do”. “How?” “Here, we set iftar tables”. And then you attack the tables like hungry wolves to eat. Where are the advices of the Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam)? Where is the understanding level of today’s people? They can’t say. Go ahead O Shah Mardan & say. He says “I may say but then many heads will be taken”. Many heads will be taken. The heads of those who leave the service of their Lord will be taken. Then shaytan will turn to them & laugh, “This is where I brought you.” O our Lord. May You protect us from being tyrants. Our dirty ego is after the claim of tyranny, meaning it’s after the claim of Pharaoh- This party, that sect… “We are better”. The other say “No, we are better”. All of them are “‘In Turidu ‘Illa ‘An Takuna Jabbaran Fi l-‘Ardi”. Read the holy Quran, O our Hojas! Allah Allah. Allah Allah. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa Lillahi-l Hamd.

May You accept us for Your servanthood Ya Rabbi. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Your yaran are in need of your teaching. Ya Mardan, you are Shah Mardan. May the holy ones come who will teach us. May the troops who will raise the flags of Islam come. May the lions come. May the lions come who will throw dunya like a ball under their feet. Allahu Akbarul Akbar. Allahu Akbarul Akbar. La ilaha illa Allahu W’Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar wa LiLlahi-l Hamd. May our inside be filled with iman, O Lord. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Your yaran are your admirers. They say “we want a flag so that we can show the whole world, Who is its Owner. What is our job? Its Owner is Allah and we are His servants. There is no one but Him”.

Tawfiq/success is from Allah Almighty. O our Lord, may You grant us power in this holy month. We don’t want the power of eating & drinking. We want spiritual power. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Your yaran are your admirers. Let us say Bismillahi r-Rahman, Bismillahi r- Rahmani r-Rahim. May it open, may we gain strength. May our majesty increase. May our lives be spent in Your way, O our Lord. You are Subhan, You are Sultan. May You accept our servanthood for the honour of holy Ramadan.
