بِسۡمِ اللهِ الرَّحۡمٰنِ الرَّحِيۡمِ
The blessed month of Muḥarram has come and Allāh ﷻ will not leave it empty. May we open and receive joy. Ask from Ummuhan Sulṭān, the companion of the Prophet ﷺ who is buried in Cyprus, and she will give because she is accepted in the Divine Presence. Falsehood cannot stand. Victory will come. Power is with the believers.
Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi (Q), Sohbat of the 7th of November, 2013.
Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. O lovers of Shah Mardan, may our day be beautiful, may our hearts be relieved. Marhaba, marhaba, O lovers of Shah Mardan. May we not be upset, may we be beautiful. Dunya, rubbish dunya. Dunya is not to be loved. Go ahead, O lovers of Shah Mardan. We ask. We ask for the kind favours of our Lord. Let’s say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. This is important. It is important to say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Salamun Qawlaan min Rabbin Rahim. (36:58) (Greeting from a Merciful Lord).
Go ahead, O Shah Mardan. Your lovers adore you. May our day be good, may the month of Muharram be honored, may it be blessed. So much and many, O lovers of Shah Mardan; favours of our Lord have no boundaries. Our Lord has many favours. Marhaba, O sincere ones, O lovers of Shah Mardan. May we open. It is a month of Muharram, a chosen month among all months. O lovers of Shah Mardan, go ahead. May the joy of this holy month come into our hearts, may its pleasure come. Let us ask from our Janab-ul Mawla. O lovers of Shah Mardan, let us ask. Let us ask from Shah Mardan. May our souls open.
Holy month. O dear friends, we are in a holy month. We ask for the kind favours of Janab-ul Mawla. O Shah Mardan. First of all, let’s wish and ask according to our condition. Our holy month is the holy month of Muharram. Let us ask from our Lord, let us ask from Hz. Ummuhan, (Hala Sultan) the great one of this country, the honor of this country. She is great, she is great. Our Ummuhan Sultan is great. She gives according to her greatness. Go ahead, O Shah Mardan. For several thousand years, our Ummuhan Sultan has opened her doors for us. Sultan, accepted in the presence of our Lord, you didn’t deprive us until now, you kept giving. Hz Ummuhan hasn’t deprived those who visit her. She didn’t sent us back empty-handed from her door until now. Ask. The door of the great ones is open. Ask. They give. Our endurance is according to our conditions.
O Ummuhan Sultan, we ask. We ask that it stops. The possessor and the great one of this world is Hz Ummuhan. Her miracles are evident. A miracle is the kindness of Janab-ul Haqq. Hz Ummuhan gave us and didn’t deny us. Hz Ummuhan favoured the nation for 1,500 years. She didn’t deprive us, she didn’t send us away from her door. She treated us with gifts. You give also. Give and you’ll be given. She is Sultan, ask from her. The Sultan doesn’t send anyone back empty-handed. Ummuhan Sultan watches us and favours those who visit her, those who love her; She favours them. That door doesn’t close. The door of the great ones doesn’t close. Does a door of the great ones close? Does a door of the Sultan close? It doesn’t. Let us say, O people of Muhammad SallAllahu alaihi wa s-sallam.
Let us say, for the honor of the Sultan, Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Her love, her affection; she gave us affection from her affection towards the Prophet SallAllahu alaihi wa s-sallam. We fell in love. Janab-ul Mawla made us love our Sultan. Love and be loved. Love and be loved. Don’t be dry. Go ahead, O lovers of Shah Mardan. How beautiful you are. How beautiful, how majestic you are, O Shah Mardan. A holy month, the month of Muharram has come. It comes with power, it will show Islam with its majesty. Our Ummuhan Sultan; let us kiss her feet, let us ask. They will lift everything from our shoulders. There is power, especially this Muharram. In Muharram, Sheikh Mehmet Efendi, there are amazing appearances during the month of Muharram. There is an amazing manifestation of sultanate. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar wa Lillahi lhamd. Janab-ul Mawla didn’t leave it empty. The Month of Muharram didn’t come empty.
“Ghulibati r-rum” (30:2) (The Byzantines have been defeated) “Wahum mimba’di ghalabihim sayaghlibun.” (30:3) (After their defeat they will win.) It says Islam will win in Quran Azim-u Shan. “Ghulibati ar-rum” (30:2) There is a manifestation, a power which will destroy our ego and lead to servanthood in this holy month. Sick ones will recover, we will. Weak ones will find strength, we will. Flags of Islam will rise. “Ghulibati r-rum” (30:2) (The Byzantines have been defeated) Janab-ul Mawla is saying. Allah Allah. “Ghulibati r-rum” (30:2) Your Lord is saying, Janab-ul Haqq Al-Qadir and Al-Muqtadir, your Lord will rescue you from weakness. He is Sultan. He won’t leave you despicable. At the door of Allah, our son Mehmet Efendi, a servant is not left despicable. He does servanthood only. That’s what He wants; do servanthood, don’t fear. Neither will you fall sick, nor become despicable, nor be defeated. “Ghulibati r-rum” (30:2) Allahu Akbar.
What news Janab-ul Haqq has for His servants. May our souls open. May faith be loaded into our hearts. O our Lord, You created us. How beautiful! How beautiful! “Ghulibati r-rum” (30:2) (The Byzantines have been defeated) “Wahum mim ba’di ghalabihim sayaghlibun.” (30:3) Al-Qadir Al-Muqtadir Allah. Our Allah Jalla Jalaluhu, whose greatness has no boundaries, He will make us rejoice this holy month, the month of Muharram. “Wahum mim ba’di ghalabihim sayaghlibun.” (30:3) JanabAllah will open. Let us ask, let us ask. What is necessary from heavens? Ask for the favours of heavens, ask for the grants of heavens. Go ahead, O Shah Mardan, O dragon, a lion who swallows disbelief. He will swallow, destroy the falsehood. Falsehood cannot stand against the Truth. It will disappear.
Month of Muharram. Allah Allah. What power Muharram is giving. It is giving us power. “Wahum mim ba’di ghalabihim sayaghlibun.” (30:3) Even though they appear as winners, “Wahum mim ba’di ghalabihim sayaghlibun.” (30:3) they will be defeated. For sure, they will be defeated. Falsehood and disbelief will be destroyed. “Wahum mim badi ghalabihim sayaghlibun.” (30:3) Don’t sleep. Even though they appear as winners, they will be defeated. Understand it. O lovers of Shah Mardan, O listeners of the lions, listen and believe. Muharram is this month. So much honor has been given to all prophets. Power has been given to believers. Those without endurance have been loaded with strength, loaded with power. He is Allah Jalla Jalaluhu.
Spirituality gives strength to a man. It gives joy. Look for possessors of spirituality.
O lovers of Shah Mardan, find joy. Find joy. Don’t be desparate. Don’t be hopeless. Even once say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. It will crush the world, destroy disbelief. It will destroy disbelief. A single manifestation of Janab-ul Haqq, a single tajalli will destroy. The hearts of believers will be filled with faith. Go to Ummuhan Sultan. Kiss her hand. She won’t send you back without giving. She is Sultan. Our Ummuhan Sultan is Sultan. Cutting our hope… Why shall we cut our hope? Our holy honored Sultan is rewarded by heavens. Which month is this month? This month is the holy month when the distinquished flags of Islam will be raised. We are weak. However, if we say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim, we will open. Spirituality gives strength to a man. It gives joy. Look for possessors of spirituality.
O lovers of Shah Mardan, O friends of Shah Mardan, O servants of the Sultan, ask. Let us ask. Let us ask from our holy Sultan. May she load us with faith. Prophets are loaded with faith.

Let us say Allah, we will destroy the disbelief of this world. Mashallahu kan wa ma lam yasha lam yakun. It conteracts the poison. It finishes the poison. The world shines in Muharram, the holy month in which power was given to all prophets. O lovers of Shah Mardan, be loaded. Ask to be loaded with faith. If he is not loaded with faith, he’s rubbish.

It is the month of Muharram. We won’t be distressed. Guard the door of Sultan. Receive light. Search for light. Light is received from the Sultan, not garbage. Light is received from the Sultan.

May our love increase day by day, may our bliss increase. May our faith towards our Lord increase. Let us say O our Lord, our Subhan, our Sultan. Search for the Sultan. Don’t be without the Sultan. If you are without the Sultan, you’ll become rubbish. Don’t be rubbish. How do you become rubbish? Don’t be rubbish. Don’t run after rubbish.
