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.

Plant Wind, Harvest a Hurricane

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim
Sultan Mawlana Sheikh Mehmet (Qs), sohbat – January 25, 2015

End of Times

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 RasulAllah, madad ya Sadati Ashabi RasulAllah, madad ya Masha’ikhina, dastur.

Audhu billahi min ash-shaytani r-rajim Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

wamakaroo wamakara Allahu w’Allahu khayru almakireen
And the disbelievers planned, but Allah planned. And Allah is the best of planners (3:54)

This ayat karima is a sign for us Muslims on the right way to be under the protection of Allah. People who are not on the right way of our Prophetﷺ, or people who say “We are Muslim”, but make an imitation of Islam according to their minds, are doing what even the enemies of Islam wouldn’t do. But Allah Azza wa Jalla looks with the eyes of kindness and love at people who are pure Muslims, who love our Prophetﷺ, follow his way and respect his Sahaba. They don’t think bad anyway. Al-mu’min yo’laf, a believer is gentle and perfect. Those Muslims are ahl al- sunnah wa l-jama’a.

●Water sleeps but the enemy never rests.

We see now that the world is boiling. They want to and they are doing evil all over the place by making traps, by thinking bad. They are laying traps from up and down, from everywhere. They are doing bad things and want to do bad. They are saying “Let us erase these people from this world. Let’s remove them”. Why? Because these are friends of Allah. And they are friends of shaitan. They don’t want them, they want to show Muslims bad from all sides. It has come to such a point that they are making any trap, that even a simple-minded man can say “it’s not something a Muslim would do. It is their trap. It is their game”.

Shaitan and his group started fitna after our Prophetﷺ, anyway. Of course, they did it slowly. They couldn’t handle it at the beginning but also, they didn’t give it up. They are always in a fight; in a fight against Allah and the friends of Allah. They never stopped. We have a saying: Water sleeps but the enemy never rests. What ‘water sleeps’ means is that it has a possibility of stopping in a valley. But an enemy has no possibility of giving up. They bear such grudge, such animosity that should even one Muslim remain on earth, they would not relax.

However, Allah Azza wa Jalla has given good tidings. No matter how many traps they lay, Allah is above them. He is the best, beneficent trap maker. As we said, ahl al-sunnah wa l-jama’a has no badness. They believe everyone and they look at everyone with love, even if the biggest enemy comes. They are deceiving people with nice words. You are deceiving these people and do you get anything from it, if Allah doesn’t want it? This is the biggest foolishness, the biggest mindlessness. You can try as much as you want, you can plan as much as you want, deceive, but unless Allah wants it, all you do turns to nothing in a moment.

Shukr to Allah, our ahl al-sunnah wa l-jama’a are relaxed people. They have trust in Allah. They say they can get along with everyone, so, trouble falls on our heads. But ultimately, Allah turns back the trouble on those who cause it. There is hadith sharif, if someone curses someone, and he who is cursed doesn’t deserve it, that curse will come back to the one who curses. The same is happening to these people. They are trying and trying. Allah is giving them that trouble, He is giving the problems, all to them.

Of course, we see now these things being done all over the world. Very bad things are being done. Very bad things are happening in order to find a reason to oppress especially, Muslims, to kill them, to remove them. Of course, these things are happening since the beginning. But now the end of times has come. It happens more. Allah, Azza wa Jalla won’t tolerate some things no matter who it is. They say there is no sin beyond unbelief. Because unbelief, not believing in Allah and making shirk is the worst; there is no sin beyond it, whatever they do.

Despite this, Muslims are saying to get along with these people. And when they attack more and more, we can’t do anything. Allah is hitting them afterwards. Because they want them to do something so that they can blame all dirtiness on them. They say “We don’t think anything but goodness”. We don’t know what they are thinking, but certainly they are thinking about big badness. It’s not easy. They dare to insult the most Beloved servant of Allah, our Prophetﷺ, who is worth sacrificing the lives of Muslims.

So these people know that something will be done. And they certainly have thought about something against it. We don’t know what they think but Allah will punish them. What they do will be punishment for them, not for Muslims, with permission of Allah. We don’t accept that and leave it to Allah. Because what they want is for us to do something and use it as a reason to attack the Muslim world, to try to destroy even more Muslims. However, their traps will be kept for themselves. Allah is the best trap maker. They are the most evil. Allah is the best.

● The end of times has started.

Their time has come. The end of times has started. It has started insha Allah. Time of Mahdi alaihi salam has started. He’s come closer now insha Allah. Whatever they do will come back on their heads. We will never do anything for them because they want us to do something. And we are waiting now for Allah to hit them. They have nothing after all. They will be even worse, they will be much worse. Do they think they have become better civilized by drawing two pictures, by making two theatre plays? “We made two sculptures”. This is their culture. What is your culture? Allah Azza wa Jalla created the Universe. You don’t have the value of even an insect. Allah Azza wa Jalla is saying, if the world was worth an insect, He wouldn’t give even a drop of water to you; if the whole world was worth a mosquito, not to mention these dirty countries.

That’s why, don’t see yourselves as giants in a mirror. You’re not even as insects. Insects are giant next to you. There is Allah. Shukr to Allah, we thank Allah for not being created like this. May Allah protect us. Because after they insulted our Prophetﷺ, they can’t ask for guidance. Allah will punish them. We only say this because they are people who cannot be guided anymore. They can shout as much as they want, they can tear things apart, Allah is with us. And you are the enemies of Allah. Be fearful. Don’t fear us, fear Allah. Allah is The Frightener.

Today we are speaking about ayah:

wamakaroo wamakara Allahu w’Allahu khayru almakireen (3:54).

Allah, Azza wa Jalla, He is protecting Muslims because since Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, shaitan and his followers beginning to make fitna against the right way, who are following Prophet, salallahu alayhi wa sallam. And these people, they are real Muslims. The real Muslims, who are following Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, loving Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, because it is the first order. You must love, you must respect, you must follow Prophet, salallahu alayhi wa sallam and, you must believe he is still alive. Who said he is dead and he goes, his belief is not complete.

● After Ottoman emperors come these worse people, the tyrants.

Ahl al-sunnah wa l-jama’a believe like this. And to love also ahlu l-bayt and love Companions of Prophet, salallahu alayhi wa sallam. Especially the best century, Prophetﷺ said, “My century and after me 4 khalifa”. Sayyidina Abu Bakr, Omar, Othman, Ali (ra). This is belief of ahl al- sunnah wa l-jama’a. And these people, they have Subhanallah, pure hearts. They are like a child, their hearts. They are not harming anybody. Even when they are fighting, they are fighting for Allah, for Prophet, and for keeping order of Prophetﷺ, to not harm child, to not harm ladies, to not harm old people, to not burn trees, to not burn people. Many things. It is the top of good manners, they have.

These people, since Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, they have been attacked by shaitan and his followers. And they are peaceful people. Other people, all the time are attacking them, but because they are with Allah, Allah helps them all the time. Since Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam until last Ottoman Empire, all like this. After Ottoman emperors come these worse people, the tyrants. And this also, they bring from enemy of Islam. They make this situation to destroy Islam. Especially these people’s kind of Islam.

They are trying hard to not leave even one person from these people. They are trying hard, but Allah azza wa jalla said: wamakaroo wamakara Allahu w’Allahu khayru almakireen. They make traps, they make bad actions, they make deception and they are trying hard. You see people since centuries, they are trying and they are continuing. Establishing some institution and for centuries they are still continuing but they are not succeeding. Why? Because Allah He knows them, and He is the best one Who makes traps. “They make traps, their worst,” Allah said, “I am the Best”. Allah make them all the time down.

Now they are making very big action and who has even very small mind, he knows that this is a show playing. They are trying to make Muslim people to attack them and after, they will attack Muslim people and they think they will finish them because we don’t know what they are thinking. Because all that we know, we are knowing the good things. We cannot think like these people. Years, hundred years, still in same thinking, just to make hatred, continuously. We cannot think like this. Because Muslims, they are not negative, they are positive.

When other people, they are thinking, and they are trying hundred years, but we don’t know what they are thinking. But we seeing now, they are trying to finish the Muslims. This is what we are thinking and we are sure they are doing some very bad things. Because when they are attacking the most precious person in this world, this universe, our Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, they are knowing they are playing with a very dangerous thing.

They are attacking. We don’t know why this is, but when we are thinking, you know it is a playing (joke), to make very bad thing. It is not culture. They are happy with their culture. What is your culture? Culture must be for people to be happy, to do good things. You are writing, playing (joking) you’re making picture, drawing something, and you are saying this is our high culture, civilization. What is your civilization? You are not, comparing to this universe, one fly even, you are not.

All this universe, and who are you to be against Allah and to be proud. Allah azza wa jalla said: If this world is worth a mosquito wing, He will never give you one drop of water. Even all this world is not worth mosquito wing, and you are proud!? What is this? You must be crazy. You lost your mind. The worst thing Allah and Prophet hate is proudness. And they are now being proud. This is not culture, not civilization, it is corruption, and it is dirty only. And they are trying to make Muslim people, these people, to be something wrong for them and to have some reason to finish all Muslims.

No, we don’t have to do something with you. But we are not accepting this, what you are doing. And now you are fighting Allah. Allah will curse you and He will not let this to be what you want. Allah is with us. Wamakaroo wamakara Allahu w’Allahu khayru almakireen. They are thinking they are clever. They are proud, looking at other people as not good people. They were all the time making bad things for us because we are peaceful people, we don’t do anything, to think bad things for people, Allah all the time with us. Now also, He is with us.

It is I think, time of end of the world. It must be like this to make Mahdi alayhi salam, come. And it is a real beginning. Insha Allah, it will not be so long for him to come. Because we don’t know. Allah know the time but it is beginning of the coming of Sayyidina Mahdi alayhi salam. We don’t know, maybe a month, maybe year, maybe years. But it is beginning. And they will not be happy in akhira. Even in dunya, also, they are not happy. Civilization is to make you happy. Not to make you find, look for happiness in drugs. Even everything they try to be happy, they try drugs, and they try very bad things to be happy.

This is craziness, not to do good things to be happy, but make bad things. They plant winds. Who plants winds, he will collect hurricane. This is why when you do bad things you cannot find good things for yourself. It is very easy. You can think for this, but they are doing the wrong thing. We cannot say for them, Allah make them to come to right way, because they are not accepting. But Alhamdulillah, we are thanking Allah to not make us like them. Alhamdulillah.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.

In Which The Qur’an Was Revealed (2:185)

Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim al Haqqani (qs), sohbat – July 12, Ramadan 2013


Dastur ya RijalAllah, madad. Ya Sahib al-Waqt (Master of Time). Ay Yaran Shah Mardan, the ones who Shah Mardan loves, As-salamu alaikum. May peace be upon you. SalamuLlah, salatuLlah, ala l-Hadi RasulAllah. How beautiful! Support us O Sahib al-Imdad! Help us O Shah Mardan! Your friends admire you. As-salamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu.

Ya hadirun, whose hearts are with Shah Mardan, may peace be upon you, may salam be on you. SalatuLlah, SalamuLlah Ala l-Hadi Rasullulah. Allah Allah. Please go on Shah Mardan. Let’s open up to get strength, to get light. May power reach us from the Assembly of Wisdom (‘Irfan). Let’s speak, Ay Yaran Shah Mardan! The friends of Shah Mardan, those who are on his way, when there are good ones why spend time with bad ones. Ad-deenu nasiha. Allah (jj) sent religion. What is religion? It is to give advice. It is the instruction of Shah Mardan that will show you the way. From whom did he take it? The Shah of Prophethood was born, he stepped on the Arsh, the Divine Throne. Allahu Akbar.

Pay respect to our Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam), revere the Master of the Universe. The Shah of Prophethood was born, he stepped on the Arsh, the Divine Throne. Allahu Akbar. What was his order to Prophet Musa? Sheikh Mehmet Effendi, Prophet Musa was ordered: Fakhla na’layk, fakhla Ya Musa.

“Fakhla’ na’layk innaka bi l-wadi l-muqaddasi tuwa.” (20:12)

Allahu Akbar. Allah, His Majestic addressing. “Ya Musa take off your shoes!” Aman Ya Rabbi forgive us! Let’s learn adab, manners. Fakhla’ na’layk, “You are in a sacred valley. You are in a sacred maqam (place). Take off your shoes. Approach in bare feet”. “Fakhla’ na’layk innaka bi l-wadi l-muqaddasi tuwa.” When He says ‘Tuwa’, none know its meaning. Allahu Akbar. O Lord, may the ones who can teach, come to us. Please go on Shah Mardan, teach us. He will teach, you should learn. As you learn you will get honour. As you acquire honour he will let you approach the Station of Qurbiyyat (nearness). Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa Lillahi’l hamd.

Since the day they were created the holy angels made dhikr of Allah. You too must do it. What an honour it is to recite the name of Janabul Haqq, to praise Him, to glorify Him. What a great honour that is! O foolish people! If only they knew. Please go on Shah Mardan! You, your assembly, the assembly of your friends, the assembly of those who love you; you teach them about real beauty. Why did you come to this world? In order to learn about its beauty. May you see the beauties that are offered to mankind by Rabbul Izzat. “Fakhla’ na’layk innaka bi l-wadi l-muqaddasi tuwa.” Prophet Musa trembled, ala Nabi alaihi s-salatu wa s-salam.

May salam go to all who are present. May our day be joyful, may our heart be like the oceans. May our faith bring down the mountains! Allahu Akbar, tremble. It trembled, it trembled. Isn’t it the mountain of Tur? It trembled from that Divine address. The Tur mountain. What is the Tur mountain? What an honour for the Mountain of Tur that it knew! O Sheikh Mehmet Effendi, may Allah open you up, may power be given to you. The praise of the Lord is our occupation. The Praise of the Lord by the way of Shah Mardan reaches Habibullah. O our Lord, fill our hearts with love and devotion to You and, with the light of Your servanthood, O Lord, so that we have no more worries.

What worries can remain? Why do you have worries? -Ey, “We couldn’t earn anything!” What can you earn from a rubbish dump? What can you earn from this world? The world is a rubbish dump. They say ‘we couldn’t earn!’ You didn’t come to this world to collect filth, you came to be a lion. Please go on Shah Mardan. He said, to be a lion, not to be a fox. We call them sewer rats that prowl about in sewage. It enters the sewer, pulls out and gets happy. That big rat, we call a sewer rat, becomes happy. It enters the sewer and pulls out. O mindless people, what do you want? Do you want to act like that sewer rat? Is this your occupation? O People! Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar.

May we open up, may our hearts open up, may our physical being open up and be refreshed! O People, you can open up with the name of Allah Jalla Jalaluhu, open up, refresh and rejoice. Shah Mardan is teaching you, you who are following him. What is his business? What is he running after? After dunya (this world)? What is dunya? A filthy place, where people dispose of their filth. Whoever comes to this world, leaves their filth behind. Why do you run after it? O Lord, fill us with the beautiful wisdom of the holy ones so that we may become pure. Let us be ready! The army has a command: “Be ready!” Be ready, stand up! The command for human beings is, “Be ready!” When you get the command “Be ready”, say: Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim, O our Lord.

It is a Divine command to us from our Subhan. Be ready to be servants of the Lord Most High. We didn’t come here for worldy affairs, nor to collect the filth of this world. Leave that. May your souls open up! O our Lord, may our hearts open up! May our hearts shine! May we walk in Your way! Let us be filled with love and passion for You as that is what we will collect. HubbuLlah HubbuLlah, fill your heart with the love of Allah! Wa hubbu Rasulullah. Plant the love of al-Habib whom Allah Dhul Jalal loves, in your heart. Go after this!

Mountains and hills remain where they stand. You, a finger-sized being, of what gain are these mountains to you? Is it tasteful? What is the use? What is this craving for mountains? Say? O our Lord! Please go on, speak Shah Mardan! Tell these mindless, heedless people, tell them, O heedless ones if you yearn for mountains and hills, you can have them. Place them in your pocket, take them with you! Not only you, but many kings lived and departed this world. Their claim: “I own everything”, but in the end they saw that they didn’t.

They called him Alexander the Great (Iskandari Kabir). Have you studied history? Iskandari Kabir (Alexander the Great). Alexander the Great said, “Let me see how far I have reached. How far I have reached and what domains I hold in my pocket and those that I can’t hold in my pocket”. Could anyone hold dunya in his pocket, my son? No! What is it to hold dunya in a pocket? If you could take it, it is yours to take. Put it in your pocket and take it with you. He said, “let me see”. He was attributed with greatness. A servant of Allah, his name is still mentioned. Alexander the Great, he was called. He set out from Macedonia, he reached India, China. He saw that nothing could be owned or put in the pocket. Allah Allah. Allah Allah.

Where does greatness come from? From where does greatness come? Mankind doesn’t understand this. Huuu. O Shah Mardan, may our hearts refresh. Ay Yaran Shah Mardan, even saying this gives happiness to our hearts. If one were given lands as far as India or China, would he be happy? He couldn’t put them in his pocket. He couldn’t swallow them. Why run after it? China, China is mine! India is mine, the west is mine, the east is mine! So, put it in your mouth and swallow it! Man is an exalted being. The robe of majesty is dressed on Shah Mardan. Huuu. Be a lion! Don’t be a fox, don’t be a mouse.

The holy month which Janabul Haqq adorned with blessings/abundance has come.

“Shahru ramadana alladhi unzila fihi alquranu” (2:185)

The holy month in which Quran Azimu Shan descended in its most blessed and sacred form. Shahru Ramadan, whoever reaches this month should observe a respect for it. He shouldn’t eat or drink. May he observe respect for this holy month. This holy month brings you honour. Try to receive its honour! It is not like the medal worn here. It is an honour granted by the heavens to the ummah of the Beloved one of Allah.

O Attendees, let us then Ay Yaran Shah Mardan, say, Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Huuu. May we be filled with faith. May we be filled with wisdom. May we be filled with light. May we race for the grants of Rabbul Izzat which are beyond the treasures of the Earth and Heavens. May we run after Divine grants. We are ordered to fast in Ramadan. What is its purpose? Please Shah Mardan tell us, it is not a matter of not eating. It is about breaking the desires of the ego, about taking charge of the ego, about putting its arrogance under your feet. Everyone has this characteristic. Being like a fox, a dog or a hyena doesn’t benefit you.

Do you have the Light of Heavens? Watch out for this! Have you profited from that light? Please go on Shah Mardan, your friends admire you. O Shah Mardan. Let’s learn. You must get to know, satan doesn’t let people learn. He who doesn’t learn becomes a satan. That is why the world has become congested. The world is full of satans because everyone says, “I want, you want, others want too”, and they turned the world into a devil’s marketplace. Especially women, how much they love the world and its ornaments? And mindless men love to wear medals and smart outfits and delight in looking handsome. For whom will you look good? What will make you look good? What looks good in Divine Presence? Have you got Light? Say! Say it!

In this holy month the disciples of Prophet Isa asked for a table-spread from the Heavens. Perhaps they couldn’t find anything better to ask for. They asked for a table-spread from the great Prophet Isa, could he have one sent down? Is this a question to be asked? Is it? Our Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam) recieved a ma’ida, a spiritual feast from the heavens, The Blessed Ramadan, “unzila fihi alquranu”. The Quran Azimu Shan descended for us and contained within it was the knowledge of everything. What a great honour for humanity! However most people choose to be like beasts rather than be spiritual. They are after material gain and deny their spiritual being. They are proud of the clothes they wear, not showing respect for the holy attire descending from the heavens.

What have we done? Ey, here is the Iftar table. Didn’t you have a dinner table before? You too, like the disciples of Prophet Isa are running after the dinner table? You are not given Holy Ramadan for setting up of tables and eating. There is no such order. Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar wa Lillahi l-hamd. During the other days you are not eating that. You wait for Ramadan in order to set up Ramadan tables, Iftar tables. Are you not yet satisfied with food? Bre, you are far from faith, just like unbelievers. Why do you desire and prepare Iftar tables? Give away in charity to the poor. Instead, ask for the light of the Quran Karim which descends from the Heavens.

Ay Yaran Shah Mardan, how beautifully he expresses it. The disciples of Prophet Isa, received a table spread. Now our people are busy preparing Iftar tables here and there. Were you hungry in the days before Ramadan? “No, this is a Ramadan table”. There are several foods on it. Only an ox and you are missing on the table. You are like an ox, when you sit there it is completed. Ramadan has not been sent just for preparing Iftar tables but satan is cheating and confusing peoples’ minds, depriving them of their humanity, making them like animals. “What are we going to eat? What a table! Wonderful table!” This is not Islam. This is not servitude to Allah!

Allah Dhul Jalal, did not order a banquet for Iftar or preparation of all kinds of foods, eating, drinking and getting happy with these, but He ordered feasting at a divine banquet descending from the Heavens, Quran Azimu Shan. “Shahru ramadana alladhi unzila fihi alquranu”. Are you receiving your share? Ay Yaran Shah Mardan, please go on, tell us! Let us tell, O friends of Shah Mardan! Let’s say, Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Most don’t even recite the Basmala (at Iftar). Those who are reciting the Basmala, a wonderful ma’ida, table-spread is coming for them. Say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar wa Lillahi l-hamd. O our Lord, all thanks to You!

O Shah Mardan, your friends admire you! He likes these words. If you owned the mountains and hills what benefit could they give you? Take them! There is India, there is China, there is Russia, there is the east and there is the west. What will we do? Eat! A world will be placed in front of them in the hereafter. They will be told to eat it. This is the world you loved so much, here, take it, eat! “I can’t eat it”. There is no other way, you have to eat. When you were in dunya, you asked for dunya. Eat, eat! You refused to be like the angels, but accepted to be like satan. When you were fasting you were cheated by your evil ego, and you attended Iftar banquets in order to gorge on food.

O our Lord, our Subhan! Please go on Shah Mardan! MashaAllah, how beautiful is your word! What an honour it is to listen to Shah Mardan! Be a lion, be a lion! There are big rats in the sewers eating muck continually. They are never full, -lup, lup, lup, lup. Those big rats, this is their way to get happy. How lovely this sewage is for us! O you, so-called Muslims, don’t imitate the rats running in the sewers, we call them sewer rats. Don’t be like them. The swift/swallow flies in the sky, Sheikh Mehmed Efendi. What does that poor one eat? There are tiny flies in the air, they eat these tiny flies and fly around like planes.

Eat little! Try to acquire the honour, and dress in that honour which is the substance of the Quran Karim. A Man is not defined by feasting on Iftar banquets. O our Lord, to show us these ways, we have Shah Mardan, let him advise us. May we open up and become refreshed. May we become enlightened, renounce the lust for dunya, become free from being like rats. O our Lord, our Allah Who is the Owner of the Earth and Heavens, You created this universe, You created this Adam. No one is considering this. No one is guiding about this. Only schooling in the preparation of the Iftar table. What is an Iftar table? Teach these children that Allah Dhul Jalal created the Earth and the Heavens and He created us to be His servants not to run after straw like animals, to enjoy it endlessly.

May Allah forgive us! O Shah Mardan your friends admire you! How pleasant is your assembly! May we gain strength and steadfastness from it, may faith come, may religion and faith come. “Shahru ramadana alladhi unzila fihi alquranu”. Allahu akbar. They say this one has a beautiful Quran recitation. It may be! But is this enough for you to benefit from? You must be a person who not only enjoys the sound of the beautiful Quran Karim recitation but be one who gets enlightened by the nur the Quran carries. Teach your children Who the Creator of the Earth is. Teach your children Who owns the Earth and Heavens.

They removed the old word maktab, using school/okul instead. They consider themselves clever! Those who are going to schools have become wild, they are destroying governments, causing troubles. Is it called the gathering of “Gezi”? (Gezi/trip) They are crowding for a “Gezi”. What is this “Gezi”? We never heard of it before this. The Gezi gathering/protest. What Gezi! They have already travelled all day. They say this is a different Gezi. This is unique. You will eat, drink, misbehave and then say that we made Gezi/went around all the big tables, boasting about it! Ya!

Please go on Shah Mardan, let’s understand. O Lion of Our Mawla, Shah Mardan, teach us! Ask for light, don’t ask for fire. May we ask for nur in Holy Ramadan. O Muslims don’t seek Iftar tables. Look for tables of Nur. Say O Gulen Hodja! Tell people what they should ask for, teach them to ask for a ma’ida coming from heavens, say this! Tell them not to fight! What are they fighting for? What is gained by fighting? Nothing. O our Lord, You are Subhan, You are Sultan. May we show our respect for the glory and honour of al-Habib al-Kibriya (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam), O Lord give us strength! Your friends admire you Shah Mardan! Fatiha.

Let’s say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. If you aren’t full, come, and I will fill you up. Fatiha. May Allah accept it. The power of Mehmed Efendi is high, he is full. He doesn’t show it but he is on duty, day and night. Sometimes he appears angry. He has the power to burn the ones who get near him. He is one of the forty. This humble one doesn’t reveal himself. I like that he speaks beautifully, I feel happy with his recitation. No one can harm them. They can burn. They can burn. They can burn the weapons of unbelievers. He is a dragon. There are forty of them. Fatiha. Come my son, you stand on Qutbaniyyat. May Allah give you power, pray for me.
