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.

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.

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.

Satisfaction

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

Sultan Mawlana Sheikh Mehmet Adil Al-Haqqani (qs), sohbat – 11th October, 2014.

Sultan Shaykh Mehmet

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

Audhu billahi min ash-shaytani r-rajim. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. “Ala bi dhikri Llahi tatma’innu l-qulub”(13:28) This ayat ul-karima is showing what to do in order to reach the highest level of people. What is the highest level? The satisfaction of your heart. What is satisfaction? Satisfaction is to find peace. Satisfaction is the highest level of peace. Satisfaction means nothing can bother this person. He is with Allah, continuously remembering Allah. You can remember Allah by tongue, but many people while making dhikr think of other things. While making dhikr, they think about how to earn money. Earning money is not important. If what one earns is halal, the rest is not important. But sometimes, various cunning thoughts come. It means he is not remembering Allah, he is remembering what his ego wants.

The people who have reached the level of satisfaction are very few. They are the saints of Allah, beloved servants of Allah. They are not disturbed by anything. “Rijalun la tulheehim tijaratun wala bay’un ‘an dhikri Llahi wa iqami s-salati ” (24:37) They are described in Qur’an Kareem. They are such people that nothing prevents them from thinking about Allah, not trading, nor other things. Nothing prevents them from dhikr of Allah. Their biggest effort is to be with Allah, to remember Allah. Of course, as we said, there are various servants on such level. Some have nothing of this dunya. Some are given everything by Allah. But both are on the same level. They don’t say “I earned all these possessions for myself”. They earn in order to give for Allah’s pleasure.

After the battle of Hunayn, our Prophet’s many spoils were brought, and Abu Sufyan came and asked him to give him 1,000 camels. Our Prophet gave him. He asked him to give 1,000 to his son. Prophet gave him as well. A satisfied man gives so freely, he gives for Allah’s pleasure. He doesn’t have anything in his heart but Allah. But their trade is the trade of the hereafter. The real trade is this. When they are satisfied, people around them become satisfied too. It is contagious. Therefore, they motivate people to gather around murshids, they advise it. Follow a murshid/guide so that you have your share of this nice state too. Be with a person who deals in the trade of akhira.

There are many murshids, but most of murshids are not for akhira. They think how to get more benefit of this world by saying words of Allah. Such a man brings discomfort to people around him, just like the other one brings peace. People won’t know but that man cannot give peace because he doesn’t work for Allah. That man is not a beloved servant of Allah. Those people are neither good for themselves, nor for others because they don’t go on the way described by Allah. They make opposite fatwa for whatever Allah says. They go by a different path. They can’t advance so. And those who follow them will travel until some point. Then Allah will give according to their hearts. If they deserve him, they will stay with him. But if their hearts are pure and they followed for Allah, Allah will take them to higher levels and show the right way.

That’s why, what’s important is that you don’t find satisfaction in money and possessions. You can find only it on the way of Allah because Allah created us. Allah has shown the way that hearts can be satisfied, how to find peace. It’s only with dhikr of Allah, with pure worship to Allah. It’s not in drinking and gambling. You can do whatever disgrace there is in this world, you won’t find even an atom of peace. Even if you take the strongest drug, you won’t find it. Allah has shown the way. And shaitan is showing a different way. Come through the way of Allah, you will earn both dunya and akhira. You will live a good life, you will live a quality life. You will be served. Otherwise, people will look badly at you. Your life will be disgraceful, and your akhira will be bad. You’ll become a worthless person. No one will look in your face. When passing you, they will run away saying you’re stupid etc. The more you try to satisfy your ego in this world, the more disgraceful you become, the more people start to hate you. Therefore, don’t waste your money and time. Come to the right way, come to the way of Allah. Remember Allah, don’t forget Allah.

Audhu billahi min ash-shaitani r-rajim. “‘Ala bidhikri Llahi tatma’innu l-qulub”(13:28) Allah mentioned this in Qur’an. What meaning this? How it is your heart, it will be satisfied? Satisfying, but it is the highest station of satisfying. Content. Itminan – contentment. Many people, they don’t know how to do it. But Allah Azza wa Jalla, He is our Creator. Who created He knows what is good for you, what is not good for you. Allah made water good for you to drink and made food good for you to eat. Can you drink petrol? It is not good for you. It is good for machine, for another thing. So Allah, He, the Creator make you, to give you what you want to do to survive in life and in next life also. To be content, you must be all day remembering Allah. This is ayat’s, “‘Ala bidhikri Llahi tatma’innu l-qulub”(13:28), meaning.

If you want to be happy, you must do this, you must all time not forget Allah. And when you do this, nothing affects you. Not saying if you are poor, if you are rich, if you are ill, if you are anything, it is not necessary. Because you’ll get the top of satisfaction. Many people, they try to do this satisfaction by artificial ways. And they are mixing between their soul and their ego. Ego wants alcohol, wants gambling, wants drugs. They want every bad lowest thing. The ego likes this. And people, they thought ego and soul same thing. No. When you do this for ego, it is not coming better, coming worse. Need more and more and more. But when you’re not doing this and just doing what Allah ordered, you become higher and higher. And when you do bad thing for your ego to be higher, coming lower. And you become worst one. Nobody likes you. People even they are running away from you. Only what, they who are like you, lowest people, they can be with you. But real people, they are discussing. And they are not like to be near you.

But others who remember Allah, and they have real satisfaction, people, they like them. Why? Because Allah likes them, loves them. Allah give this for few people, of course. But these people, they are like island, like Western people, they are coming to them. And they become like them also. They have this satisfaction, this happy feeling, and they will be winner in dunya and akhira. Because you cannot buy this by money, if your rank, high rank or you are artist or another thing. It is not important to be with these. Only to be with Allah and to be satisfied, this is important thing. Even you are very poor or even you are very rich, it is not important. Because rich people also, these who with Allah, they are not with money, only with Allah. They use this money, they can spend quickly.

Because Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam) when after War of Hunayn, Ghazwa/battle of Hunayn, they were taking many thousands of camels and sheep and others. So Abu Sufyan coming, asking Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam) “Give me 1,000 camels”. He said “Take” without saying anything. 1,000 camels, it is that time like 1,000 cars this time. Not easy to have 1 camel even that time. And he said “I want for my son also.” “Take.” “For another son”. He gave him 5,000 camels once in 5 minutes. So it is not important. The important thing for tijara, for trading for akhira this, not for dunya.

And you must find these people to be together. Because this satisfaction coming from them to you also. You’ll be happy, you will not be worried for anything. And you’ll be winner in dunya and in akhira, the last world. But many people, they are not looking for this. Only what they are doing, they are trading, trading the religion or tariqa to get benefit for themselves. When they do this, it is really a miserable thing. Their life, whole life – miserable. And people around them all time not finding any good feeling, just want to fight to make not good with other people – “How I can take from this man this money?” Only what they think is this. And it is not good, not giving any baraka for around them. And if they have million of followers, it’s also, they are not happy. Because they are mixing between ego and soul. And this is ego, not from soul. They are not clever ones.

The clever one who know how to be happy if only 5 people with him, and he is really with Allah, he is happy. Even nobody with him, also happy. But if he has 5 million people following him and he is not with Allah, and only looking “How many people are coming to me? How many people going to that man?” he’ll never be satisfied. This is Mawlana what whole life tried to teach people. But very few people, they know this. Sometimes coming to be, they accept. After quickly, ego coming on them, not accepting.

So alhamdulillah, you must be happy and accept what Allah give you. Don’t look for people. If coming 1 people, if coming 10,000 people, it’s ok. We are not doing this for ourselves. Don’t come for us to pray for us. No, just for Allah. And to be in right way and with 1 people it is better (than) to be with whole world without Allah, against Allah. Alhamdulillah. Don’t forget this. This is nasiha/advice for me before you. Because many people coming and saying something but it looks like advice, looks advice but it’s from shaitan. They say “This man doing this, you must do this. They are doing this, you must do that.” No, we are not doing what people want to do. What Allah give inspiration and what Mawlana, he taught us, we try to follow this. Of course, we have many mistakes. But inshaAllah with good intention, Allah forgive us.

So no need to be worried. “How these people, they will go they will come?” No, at all. No worry at all. Don’t be worried also. Because, as we said, these people who following any murshid, any sheikh, if they have good intention, they will come to some place. After this place, they will be; Allah send them to where they deserve. Others who following these people who are following their ego, because they are like them, also they deserve to be with them. It’s no matter. For this, meaning satisfaction. Don’t worry at all. Allah make us with these people who they have satisfaction, the highest, the highest matlub, request, for us in this dunya and for akhira also.

Wa min Allahi t-tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
