Be With The Truthful

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim


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 Mashaykhina, dastur, madad ya Sheikh Abdullah Faiz Daghestani, Sheikh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani, dastur. Tariqatuna s-sohbah, wa l-khayru fi jam’iyyah.

If you want to be relaxed in this world, you can be with truthful people only, those whose personality and actions match each other. “Ya ayyuha llathina amanu ittaqu Allaha wakunu m’a s-sadiqin.” (9:119) The order of Allah is to fear Allah and to be with truthful people. Both are the good commands of Allah. They are for your benefit. Allah is not in need of anyone. He won’t receive any benefit. Even if all your actions are good, they have neither benefit nor harm for Allah. Both their harm and benefit is for you.

Therefore, everybody knows in this life that going with a liar is not liked by anyone. Just like disliking a liar, you should also be a truthful one so that people can be friends with you. Be a desired person. There is no need to lie for the sake of someone. Our Prophet‎ﷺ says when a person starts telling lies, slowly slowly he is written as a liar in the presence of Allah. And a true person is written as a truthful one in the presence of Allah by telling the truth. Because when a man starts lying, he tells another lie to support his previous lie. Going like this until his whole his life is built upon lies. He will have wasted it. He won’t be a beneficent man. And its harm will be more for himself.

The truthful are the Prophets. Sahabas (companions) are truthful, Awliya are truthful, believers are truthful. Be with them. No need to go after those who promise you something everyday and don’t keep their promises. We must follow the way of Allah, the way shown by Allah. This is the beautiful way to be in comfort in this life and to be saved in akhirah, the real life, haqq-ul hayat, the life of akhirah. Holy Quran is the book of all mankind, all universe. “Wa la ratbin wa la yabisin illa fi kitabin mubeen.”(6:59) Everything is there. There are short things but they show the way too. They are beautiful things. They keep light in people’s lives. Some people are blind, they don’t see. That is different. But this is enough for people even though it’s short.

Today we are saying, [it is an] order of Allah, holy verse: “Ya ayyuha lladhina amanu ittaqu Allaha wa kunu m’a s-sadiqin” (9:119) Allah ordering us to be afraid from Allah. How to [be] afraid? To not do wrong things, to see He is seeing us, what we are doing. He is, everything He knowing, nothing can hide. Second thing – Be with trustful people who are saying truth, people. Don’t be with liars. And this is for our, human being’s benefit. Allah [is] showing us these good ways because for Allah [there is] no benefit from what we doing. We done, we do, we will do – No benefit at all for Allah. No harm also for Him. He is Creator. Everything for you, for people, for human beings. Allah showing good way and to be with good people, not liar people. It is even for normal people, it is good.

So, don’t be liar! Because, hadith as-Sharif, Prophet ‎ﷺ saying: There are people, they are speaking, lying ones. After [that] lying again and they it is like habit for them and they will be written in Divine Presence as liars. And other who say truth, he saying truth every time saying truth. Allah write in Divine Presence they are true man, good man. Because when you saying truth, [it is] true – no need to put another truth near it; it is OK. But when somebody lying and saying lie he must put another one near it. Because it is weak and it is not enough, he will put another, another, another until whole life he will be in, built on lies.

This is you must be away from these people who are promising and not doing, and they are lying [their] whole life. You must be away from these people. Allah ordered to be with true-saying people. And it is easy for people to live with good people, not easy to live with not trustful (trustworthy) people. It’s for our benefit.

And the Qur’an Azimu sh-sha’an, everything in this life [is] written on it, inside it. Inside [the] Qur’an, Holy Qur’an. And Allah give us way, showing us [the] way how to be happy here and hereafter. Even small orders but it is only for our benefit. Allah, as we said, all human beings if they are right nothing good for Him, no benefit for Him or even all they are wrong way, also no harm for Allah. Only for us and He is Creator and He is showing us how to be with whom we must be and who we must follow. Who … Be with good people, trustful people. Don’t be with other people and you [will] be happy and here and hereafter also. And we must learn to say [the] true – to not learn at all to say a lie. To not be habit for you to be [a] liar. It is not good to writing in Divine Presence ‘This man liar!’ It is shame for these people!

Allah keep us in the right way, and write us in good people, trustful people in Divine Presence.

Fasting Is Light

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

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

Sultan ul Awliya- Ramadan

Audhu billahi min ash-shaytani r-rajim. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. As-salatu wa s- salamu ala Rasulina Muhammadin Sayyidi l-awwalina wa l-akhirin. Madad ya RasulAllah, madad ya Sadati Ashabi Rasulillah, madad ya Mashaykhina, dastur. Shaykh Abdullah Daghistani, Shaykh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani, dastur. Tariqatuna s-sohbah, wa l- khayru fi jam’iyyah.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Wa min Allahi t-tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.

Shahru Ramadan

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

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

2015-06-18_tr_ShahruRamadan_SMAs-salamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. Audhu billahi min ash-shaytani r-rajim. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. As-salatu wa s-salamu ala Rasulina Muhammadin Sayyidi l- awwalina wa l-akhirin. Madad ya RasulAllah, madad ya Sadati Ashabi Rasulillah, madad ya Mashaykhina, dastur madad ya Shaykh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani, madad ya Sheikh Abdullah Faizi d-Daghistani, dastur. Tariqatuna s-sohbah, wa l-khayru fi jam’iyyah.

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

Wa min Allahi t-Tawfiq Al-Fatiha

Happy Birthday Beloved Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (QS)!


Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

● Our Lord Almighty says: Draw near to Me! I will grant you a place in My Eternal Kingdom, where you will abide in ever-lasting beauty for all eternity.

“A flower, Shaykh Mehmet Efendi, is alive and sprouts afresh. Through its fresh green it wishes to approach Allah Almighty. Even a green blade of grass grows and puts forth flowers. For what? Let me win their hearts, let me draw close to my Lord, it says. How lovely! It springs forth from the ground, the black earth. It turns green and shows its various colours. For whom does it produce such beauty? Whom does it do this for? Ah, if only we could realize this! All the different kinds of flowers, the different types of trees, the different kinds of fruits, for what do they all grow and flower, and shine? wa-btaghū ilayhi l-wasīla. (5:35) In order to gain the Lord’s good pleasure. Eh, we have become sticks of dry wood. Dry wood. Our Lord Almighty says: Draw near to Me! I will grant you a place in My Eternal Kingdom, where you will abide in ever-lasting beauty for all eternity. Do not dry up and perish. Allahu Akbar. Subhan Allah, Sultan Allah.”

Mawlana Rumi

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

Mawlana Sheikh Mehmet Adil (QS), sohbat, February 19, 2015.


As-salamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

Audhu Billahi min ash-shaitani rajim. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. As-salatu wa salamu ala Rasulina Muhammad Sayyidi l-awwalin wa l-akhirin. Madad ya RasulAllah, madad ya Sadati Ashabi RasulAllah, madad ya Mashaykhina, dastur, Mawlana Sheikh Abdullah Dagestani , Mawlana Sheikh Nazim al-Haqqani, dastur.

• Jalaluddin Rumi, he is one of the biggest Sheikh, murshid and teacher.

Masha’Allah, we see these children and their Sheikh, making Jalaluddin Rumi way sama. Whirling, whirling derwish. This is good for teaching them good things from small age, beginning to learn nice thing. Because Jalaluddin Rumi, he is one of the biggest Sheikh, murshid and teacher. His father also was very big murshid, very religious scholar, alim in his time. And you know, many people they don’t know they come from Balkh. It is area Balkh. It is very far from Konya. His father, he was Sheikh of Sultan in Balkh.

Sultan was happy with him, but at the end, when Sultan don’t want to listen to him, he said, “I must go from there”. Because his father also big awliya, told Sultan to not fight with Mongols. Must be, ask them what they want. But Sultan, he was proud and not listening to him, so he said “I am leaving, you can do what you want because I know it will be not good for people here.” So he take his family and went to Konya but in many places he stopped. After 7 years he arrived to Konya and many years after, in Konya, his father he passed away.

And Mawlana, he was very connected with his father. He was very sad. Long time he didn’t speak to anybody until he slowly, slowly opened again. Time of his father was where he giving speech in mosque. All Konya people coming, listening. Ulama, scholar, mashayikh, they coming and listening to his father. He was his teacher also. Mawlana Jalaluddin Rumi’s teacher, teaching him from the books of knowledge. All knowledge he was showing him. Every book he was giving him exactly meaning and wisdom.

He was in highest in knowledge around. After his father he was the highest one. All the ulama, they’re waiting him to give them lessons, when sheikh, but he was unhappy, so he couldn’t do this for a long time. After slowly, slowly, he began and he was like his father. All ulama accepting him, they are happy with him. Everywhere was full up. You cannot find a place in mosque to listen to him. They were coming, sitting outside also. But he was feeling he needs more. It was not enough for him, this knowledge, because knowledge is not enough to know, and to be in real love with Allah.

• So he was seeing in his dream, in Damascus, Shams Tabrizi.

There must be somebody teaching. So he was seeing in his dream, in Damascus, Shams Tabrizi. Unfortunately, we won’t speak too much in detail but after this Shams Tabrizi coming to Konya and meeting him there. And he accept him to be his guide to true love. But of course his type of speaking, or behaving, or wearing, it was different from that area and people, they weren’t happy with him. And he was giving himself completely to Shams Tabrizi and was making khalwat and speaking with him.

Sometimes days they are not going out, only speaking. So people were not happy at all with Shams Tabrizi. Ulama, everybody, they are angry and said “He take our Sheikh from us. He’s not good man. How Mawlana following him?” They were not happy with Shams Tabrizi. Long story to say but the main thing is that Mawlana was in highest place in knowledge, in ilm. And he was knowing the value of Shams Tabrizi and he was not listening to anybody. At the end of course, some people, they make Shams Tabrizi shave and they disappear him. Nobody can find him, where he is.

• The Mathnawi Shareef

Of course, for Mawlana Jalaluddin Rumi it was a terrible thing but because he was learning from Shams Tabrizi to accept everything, he was patient and he put his pain to be away from his guide, his teacher and the most loved one in the world. It is not easy but from teaching of Shams Tabrizi, he was carrying this. And he write many books. The famous one, the Mathnawi Shareef. Mathnawi, it is real incredible book. It is teaching and showing the finest details in human being. There are many stories, many wisdoms, it is really very nice book, it is poems. He make it in poem, more than 5,000-6,000 piece, poems.

It is beginning from poem, speaking about bamboo because they make this ney from it. Describing that it was in bamboo field and somebody coming, cutting it. In this he also described himself. After they make opening on its body to make hole. After this they putting in oven, burning little bit. After this it is making this sad, nice voice coming from the ney. First it must suffer to be different from other. This is from his teaching, nice teaching. Many stories also inside this book. Some of them funny but it’s nice, very nice.

I will speak one other. They say one time there was one trader in one place and he was broke, aflas, and because people, they know him he’s trader, so he was going here and there and taking, saying, “I give you later”, and he don’t have money. He couldn’t give anything but people, they were angry and said for government “This man making this for us”. So what they will do? Old time there is custom. City, old time it’s not big, maybe in one day they all can go around and tell people for this man.

They put him on camel. One camel, it was belonging to one Kurdish man. They put this man on top of camel and Kurdish man, he going with him. And another man, old time no media, so one strong voice, he was announcing to people, “O people, this man he is broke, don’t give him anything, if he wants, none, or if he want something, he says “I will give you later”. Don’t give him because you cannot get it anymore and government not responsible for this.” Every small street, everywhere from morning until nighttime, they were going and this Kurdish man, the owner of camel, together.

So it must be, everybody they hear about this man. And night time, they said “Ok, finished.” And say to this man “Ok, you go”. Because old time: al muflasun la yahbasun. If anybody is broke, you cannot put him in jail. So he want to leave and go, this Kurdish man who owned camel. He said “Give me my wages, all day I was with you. All day I’m tired, give me my money.” They said, “What are you talking about? Today from morning to evening, there was this man announcing, you didn’t hear?”

Mawlana Rumi is showing this about people who are in life. Every minute Allah gives them example, “Don’t do this, don’t do that. Do this, do that.” And at the end, they are coming without anything. This is the loser, like this man. So he is teaching millions of people. Non- Muslims also, they are interested for this book. They are attracted for this whirling dancing also. Many people became Muslim also from this. And he was real ahl al-sunnah wa l-jama’a. He was against these pretending people. Alhamdulillah tonight, maybe from these people his baraka is coming on us. From his baraka also.

Wa min Allahi tawfeeq. Al-Fatiha.


Don’t Worry Be Happy

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

Mawlana Sheikh Mehmet Adil (QS), sohbat, March 19, 2015, Lefke-Cyprus

Sultan Sh Mehmet Adil

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 Mashaykhina, dastur. Madad ya Mawlana Sheikh Abdullah Faiz Dagestani, madad ya Mawlana Sheikh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani, dastur, madad.

Allah Azza wa Jalla wishes goodness for people but shaitan doesn’t wish goodness, he wishes badness and evil for people.

Audhu billahi min ash-shaytani r-rajim. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim:
Qul bifadli Allahi wa birahmatihi fabidhalika falyafrahu huwa khayrun mimma yajmauna (10:58).

With the Grace and Mercy of Allah, Allah Azza wa Jalla says to rejoice, be reassured, this is better than everything you collected from possessions of dunya. Allah is ordering us to be reassured, to not be sad. Why are you being sad? Allah’s Grace and Mercy are upon you. He brought you to this way therefore, no need to be sad. Be always happy, be joyful. Allah Azza wa Jalla has given the biggest favour. His Grace and Mercy are not meant to be given to everyone because who is brought to the right way has entered the right way by Allah’s Grace. Then it is said in the same surah, in Surah Yunus:

Ala inna awliya Allahi la khawfun alayhim wala hum yahzanuna (10:62). Alladhina amanu wakanu yattaquna (10:63).

Saints of Allah meaning, the beloved servants of Allah have neither fear, nor sadness. They have no sorrow. Why? Because they fear only Allah and they avoid badness. Such a person won’t fear anything because he knows what to fear. There is a Day of Judgment, Day of Qiyama. There is facing Allah. If one has to face after doing badness then he will be afraid. But when he is as Allah says, he becomes of the beloved people of Allah, of saints. Not necessarily to show miracles or to manifest, just to do what Allah says and you’ll be a beloved servant of Allah.

You will have deserved Allah’s Mercy. You will be in comfort both in dunya and in akhira. Allah Azza wa Jalla does not say be sorrowful in dunya. Be happy, because you have the biggest favour. Whatever happens, despite trouble, poverty, famine or drought, Allah Azza wa Jalla says be happy, be reassured and do not be sad. His Grace and Mercy are upon you. When someone obeys this order of Allah, indeed he becomes relieved and nothing can affect him. Ninetynine percent of this world is sad. They are always in sorrow.

Allah Azza wa Jalla says to not fall into worry and sadness. Be relieved that you are on this way, be always in ease. He is giving the good news. Allah Azza wa Jalla, what is His order? What He wants? He wants people to be happy. He said He is Generous and His order, gift : Be happy.

Qul bifadli Allahi wa birahmatihi fabidhalika falyafrahu (10:58)

Be happy with this. Don’t be sad, don’t be anxious, don’t be in darkness. No, Allah He is showing people and ordering people to be happy. But how? Follow His order. When you follow His order, you’ll be happy. And the other ayah also in this same, Surah Yunus:

Ala inna awliya allahi la khawfun alayhim wa la hum yahzanuna (10:62) Alladhina amanu wa kanu yattaquna (10:63)

These awliyaullah, the beloved servants of Allah they don’t have any fear and no sadness for them. Why? Because they’re believers and they are afraid to do wrong things. Not afraid from Allah, afraid to do wrong thing. They are ashamed to do anything against Allah and they’re afraid to be in wrong way. They don’t have any sadness, any fear. This is Allah’s order, it is a shortcut. Don’t be sad He said. Don’t be anxious for your life, for “how I can do this, how I can do that?” No need to be worried. Don’t worry, be happy. This is order of Allah.

Only do what He is telling you. After this there will be no sadness in your heart because sadness, when you do wrong thing becoming one point of black, as you do another one, another point, until it will be all completely black and you’ll be in dark mood, You see everything bad, you see everybody bad, and you’ll feel yourself in prison. No, Allah showing us all best way to do.

Who is cheating people? Shaytan and his followers, they’re cheating them and they’re all the time worried, they’re angry with people, angry with government, they’re angry with religion, they’re angry with family. This is shaytan teaching. Allah is not teaching this, Allah ordering to be good with everybody, and to be specially good with Allah and to follow His orders. And after this you will be happy.

Wa min Allahi at-tawfiq, Al Fatiha.
