Servanthood can only be completed with love. Love and be loved. The world is coming to its end. Don’t ask for the world or its treasures. Ask for Divine Affection. Love Allah and the one Allah called His Beloved, the Master of the Universe. Let us taste the Divine Love.
Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim
Sultan ul Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi ق ,
Sohbat of the 20th of September, 2013
Audhu Billahi Min ash-shaitani r-Rajim Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. O lovers of Shah Mardan, salam to you from heavens, from the skies. May Janab-ul Haqq Subhana wa Ta’ala, for the honor of His Beloved, remove burdens from us, and may the manifestation of mercy come. May the manifestation of grief be lifted from us. “Falhukmu Lillahi l-aliyyi al-kabir.” (40:12) (all Judgement is Allah’s).
O lovers of Shah Mardan, welcome to our assembly. You came with goodness. If we have burdens, may these burdens be lifted from us. Marhaba, O lovers of Shah Mardan. As long as marhaba comes from you to us, no burden will remain on our shoulders. Let us say, O Shah Mardan, marhaba to you, marhaba to us as well. May we open. It’s holy Juma. May we open, may we feel relieved, may we feel happy, may we cheer up. States of a man don’t match with each other. O lovers of Shah Mardan, those who love Shah Mardan, who want to be his companions, may their beautiful state come to us as well so that we open. There are many signs torturing people in this world. If that thing making burdens to people comes to one man, it will come to others as well. There are many holy people who carry burdens. Go ahead O Shah Mardan, your expressions are perfect.
O lovers of Shah Mardan, may we feel relieved, find comfort. Time has become the last of times. We’re not at the beginning of the world. The world is going towards its end. We’re flowing towards the Judgment Day. May Allah give us peace of faith, give us health of a body, grant us adab. Today is holy Juma. Its blessing is coming down on the mighty Kaaba. We ask for it too. May that mercy come down on us too. Go ahead, O lovers, marhaba to you. May our burdens be gone, may relief come, may comfort come, may ease come. The world. It has its beginning and its end.
Go ahead, O Shah Mardan, your lovers adore you. We’re not living for this world. Those who live for this world have turned against each other. One says: “This world is mine.” The other says, hasha min-al hudur “Go away! The world is mine.” Eventually, the world belongs neither to one nor to the other. It is important to know what to ask for. You should know what you live for. Asta’idhu Billah. “Wama khalaqtu l-jinna wal-insa illa liyabuduni” (51:56) Go ahead, O Shah Mardan. The honored word of Janab-ul Mawla: “The group of people and jinn, let them do servanthood to Me.” Servanthood is complete with love. Who doesn’t love cannot serve. See. You have to love in order to be served. Janab-ul Haqq doesn’t want servanthood by force. O our Lord, our Subhan, our Sultan, You dressed Your Beloved with Your love. You dressed our Master, the Master of the Universe, in love. He loved. With that love, he became the Master of the Universe. You too, O man, carry love according to your rank. Go ahead, O Shah Mardan. Your lovers adore you. They ask for love, too. Sheikh Mehmet Effendi, our son, exchange love. Allahu Akbar.
How nice! Go ahead, O Shah Mardan. O my lovers, exchange affection. Allahu Akbar. There is nothing else in this world, no other trade. May I open. Exchange love and affection. This is the biggest trade, the exchange of affection. Love and be loved. Go ahead, O Shah Mardan, give us strength. May we love and be loved according to our ranks. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar wa Lillahi l-hamd. Who doesn’t exchange love is a blockhead, a log. Come to this world to exchange love. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar wa Lillahi l-hamd. O our Lord, you called him Your Beloved and gave love. You gave love to our Master, my Beloved Muhammad Mustafa. He exchanged love. Janab-ul Haqq said “O My Beloved, I fell in love with you. I made you Muhammad Mustafa. I chose Ahmad and Mahmud to be Muhammad. I fell in love with you, and I fell in love with those who love you.”
Allah Allah. May we open. May we open on the way of Allah. May we not die. Who has love in his heart doesn’t die. So says Allah. Go ahead, O Shah Mardan. Your lovers adore you. This is what we ask for. Don’t ask for gold, don’t ask for silver, don’t ask for jewels. Ask for the love given to His Beloved from Divine affection, search for that. O our Lord, my Janab-ul Mawla who causes the sun to rise every day and causes it to set every day, may we have from that light as well. May we live with that light as well. Allahu Allah Allahu Rabbi Allahu Allah ma li siwahu. Ya Rabbi, don’t give us (worldly) enjoyment. I want to reach that rose garden with pure faith. Ask. There are rose gardens. Love opens and love is opened in our hearts.
O our Lord, Hasbun Allahu wa ni’mal waqil. Go ahead, O Shah Mardan. Your lovers adore you. See, what a nice saying. What a beautiful saying, O Shah Mardan. Allah has filled with divine affection. O Shah Mardan, you are Shah Mardan. You were filled with affection. O Shah Mardan, go ahead. Your lovers adore you. Beautifully sweet… They want from that sweet friendship, sweet affection. They’re not after eating and drinking. The world is beneath their feet. Heavens and skies, the sky is above their heads. O man, know what to ask for. It’s there. And what are you? What is your demand? The world is cast away. It’s thrown away. Strive to receive the affection of those skies called heavens. Be loaded, full of affection. Be loaded with love.
Go ahead, O Shah Mardan. Your lovers adore you. You’re loading them with love. MashaAllah. You’re filling them with affection. MashaAllah. The world is beneath your feet. Janab Allah has put the world beneath the feet of people. Angels are in the skies. Don’t have desire for what is beneath your feet. What is under our feet is the world. Don’t have desire for it. Look at what is above you.
O Shah Mardan, your lovers adore you. Our Mawla gave us honor. He gave honor with His Beloved. Allahu Allah Allahu Rabbi. Allahu Allah Allahu Hasbi. You’ll be beautiful. You’ll be beautiful. Say Allahu Rabbi Allahu Hasbi. You’ll be beautiful. Who says “Allah”, reaches all his goals. Allah. What a nice teaching. Who says “Allah”, reaches all his goals. Go ahead, O Shah Mardan. Teach us so that we say Allah too. May we not have goals other than Allah. Ilahi Anta Maqsudi – (Allah You suffice us) wa Ridha’uka Matlubi.(Your pleasure is our aim) O our Lord, how beautiful You are. What is our trouble? Our trouble is because we can’t reach that love. Go ahead, O Shah Mardan. Teach us about that love. Let us taste it. Let us taste the Divine Love you’re tasting. There’s nothing beyond that. The world is beneath our feet. It’s not worth a penny.
The value of a man is worth the amount of love he carries. He said “O My Beloved”. No one has the affection he has, our Habibullah, the Master of Universe, the Praise of Universe. Who says “Allah” won’t be destroyed. Describe our Beloved to us as well, O Shah Mardan. MashaAllahu kana wa ma lam yasha’ lam ya’kun. Rubbish dunya. Know what to ask for. Know the jewels. Open up. May we open. Our Mawla who created us is Subhan, Sultan. O our Lord, what shall we do? Our Mawla gives us according to our states. Shah Mardan receives from that fountain. Shah Mardan received Divine affection from the son of his uncle (ﷺ). He glowed. His sultanate will succeed both in this world and in the hereafter.
Shah Mardan. May we not live for rubbish dunya. May we live for the lover of His Beloved. The Beloved loved his Creator. It was said “O My Beloved” and he was fallen in love with. He loved and was loved. Lovers, this is our lesson.
Go ahead, O Shah Mardan. Your lovers adore you. Today is Juma. Shah Mardan is talking to us according to our state. An ant has its own provision. An elephant has a different provision. According to our states. O our Lord. Our Lord. Our Lord. May we love, may we make others love. May our work be this. May we love, may we make others love. O our Lord. You loved Your Beloved, You made him love. May we love too, and make others love. May our work be this. Dunya. Where is paradise? Dunya. Paradise gardens are great. Yes. May we love and be loved. Be beautiful! The Mawla created you beautiful. Don’t be ugly, be beautiful. Everything descending from heavens is beautiful. Everything you collect in this world is rubbish. Don’t collect anything in this world. Collect what comes from heavens.
Go ahead, O Shah Mardan. Who says “Allah” reaches all his goals. Our Allah, forgive us, forgive us, forgive us, our Allah. Who loves Allah is beautiful. Who is the most beautiful in the universe? Our Master. Why? There’s no one who loves his Lord like he does. Love brings beauty. Exchange love to be beautiful. Allahu Allah. Allahu Rabbi Allahu Hasbi.
Go ahead, O Shah Mardan. We sacrifice our heads on your way. We ask Welcome from you, so that you say “Marhaba” to us. Marhaba, O lovers of Shah Mardan. Fatiha.
Today is the day of holy Juma. Mercy is coming down. May it come down on us too. May our burdens be gone. What is burden? They won’t leave burden on you.
Long live those who listen to Shah Mardan.
