There was a fire that started in the forest on the Greek side of the island of Cyprus and, due to strong wind, it crossed the border at the village of Yesilirmak. It was increasing in intensity as it advanced. After 7 hours of trying to control the fire they achieved nothing. It was already midnight and the people in the wake of the fire were scared and helpless. The helicopters cannot function as efficiently at night and every hour the wind rose and the fire continued to advance and spread. Finally, the people sent to ask for Mawlana’s help.
Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim
Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi ق , Sohbat of the 8th of August, (Shawwal), 2013
Dastur Ya Shah Mardan! As-salamu Alaikum. Ay Yaran Shah Mardan! May it be strength for our bodies! May it be strength for our physical bodies and for our spirituality. Madad Ya Rijal Allah. Madad Ya Sahib az-zaman Madad Ya Shah Mardan. As-salamu Alaikum Ay Yaran Shah Mardan. How beautiful a salam, how beautiful a salam! May praise be to Janabul Mawla! Thanks to the Lord for sending us Shah Mardan, to advise his friends, Ay Yaran, Shah Mardan’s beloved friends! Al-mar’u ma’ man ahabb. One is with whom he loves. We have, according to our state, love for Shah Mardan. We want to be his yaran/friends. We want to be his beloved friends. We wish, they are present with us. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa Lillahi l-Hamd. Madad Ya Shah Mardan! Madad! Madad/help, he says, comes according to the adab(good manners) you have. Madad/help comes according the adab one has. For this reason, try to learn adab so that the madad of Heavens reaches you!
Dastur! Madad Ya Rijal Allah. Madad Ya Shah Mardan. Your friends admire you. Madad comes according to your adab. Madad doesn’t come to ones who are without adab. A slap comes for the ones who are without adab. May we give our thanks to Allah that He granted us to be friends of Shah Mardan. For the sake of His Al-Habib al-Kibriya, Allah granted us to be Shah Mardan’s friends. How beautiful! Who is this man? A man! With whom does he makes friends? Sir?! His friends who are with him are like garbage. You were sent to dunya not to be dunya’s garbage or not to collect the garbage of dunya. Madad Ya Rijal Allah Madad Ya Sahib az-zaman. Madad Ya Shah Mardan. What we say is that dunya is dirtiness/ wickedness or foolishness! What is foolishness? It is to be contemptible. Who runs after something which is contemptible, he is foolish, he is contemptible. Masha’Allahu kan. How beautiful!
Light reveals/supports your personality.
May we begin! Let’s say, Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Let’s get strength, let’s get honour. May we find glory, may we find sublimity, may we find uns/familiarity, may we find nur/light. May we find a treasury, may we find the Sultan. Allahu Akbar Ad-dunya daniyya. Dunya is worthless/vulgar. Who runs after it, he is worthless too. Don’t be worthless! Janabul Haqq didn’t send you to Earth to be worthless/vulgar. He sent you in order to show you, your supreme rank. Let’s say, Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Allahu Akbar wa Lillahi l-Hamd. O our Lord! Fire/nar is from You. Light/nur is from You. Fire is in His Divine Hand. Light is in His Divine Hand. Oceans of light of the Angelic Dominions, are calling you! “Come!” And the oceans of fire, there are these of fire too, they are calling you too! “Come to me!” Fire burns! It finishes your personality. Light reveals/supports your personality. Madad Ya Rijal Allah Madad Ya Sahib al-imdad Madad Ya Shah Mardan.
As-Sahib an-Nur (Possessor of light) is the Master of the Universe.
How beautiful, how beautiful it is to be beautiful! One who belongs to the Divine Nur/Light is beautiful. Who belongs to the fire, is ugly. Nur/Light! As-Sahib an-Nur (Possessor of light) is the Master of the Universe. One who belongs to him has nur. He is nur. His form is nur. He himself is nur who is in love with nur. There is nar/fire.. Fire is from satan. One who belongs to fire, satan, will burn. He will be satan. He will be ugly. He will be ashes and finish. Madad Ya Sahib al-imdad, Ya Shah Mardan. Marhaba Ay Hadirun! Ay yaran Shah Mardan, what shall we do?
Let’s say; Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Innahu min Sulaymana wa innahu Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. (27:30) Allah Allah. What a majesty! What a mightiness! Sheikh Mehmet Effendi! Basmala Shariff! The Queen of Sheba trembled! Balqis trembled, her throne was shaken, her golden throne tumbled down. She fell into sajda/prostration from the letter from Sulayman – innahu min Sulayman wa innahu Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. (27:30) Allahu Akbar Madad Ya Shah Mardan. Those who don’t teach these ways to people, do not let people learn these things, they are satan, they are ugly! They are rotten, dirty and unclean. The Doors of Heaven won’t be opened for them! Please go on Shah Mardan! Habib ur-Rahman, how beautiful you are! How beautiful your way is! Look for the beautiful way, the beautiful way is the way which goes to Malakut (Heavenly Dominions), to Malakut. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Dhu l-Jalali wa l-‘Ikram. Allahu Akbar, it is essential to learn adab. Janab-i Haqq, Ay Hadirun Let’s listen to Shah Mardan!
The Lord didn’t created human beings to be logs. Logs are for fire. He didn’t create them from fire either. Janabul Haqq is giving light. He is giving us nur. He created us of nur. From the nur of His Habib He created our Father Adam and Mother Hawa. Hay hay! inspite of themselves, may they creep away, those vermin who don’t accept this! Don’t be like vermin! Be ahlu Nur, People of Nur! Please go on Shah Mardan! Ma sha’ Allahu kana, wa ma lam yasha’ lam yakun. Whatever our Mawla wills will happen! Whatever He doesn’t will won’t happen! Janabul Mawla granted the Prophet Adam, and mankind, the rank of deputy. Nothing else is higher than this. Satan said, “I want this!” Who are you to be!? Only the one I created for this purpose is My Deputy. I created them with My Divine Hands! Sons of Adam! Teach! Sons of Adam, learn! Learn your situation and your attribute. Allahu Akbar Let’s say, Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. My our hearts open up! May our spirituality be strengthened! May our love and ardour increase! Let’s say, Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. Subhanahu wa Ta’ala.
Fire has started! Who lit the match? The mountains are burning! Mountains! With which match do mountains start to burn? They are trying to extinguish it with the water of seven oceans but they cannot extinguish that fire! When there is fire, say takbir, you should recite takbir! There was fire in the garden. When Sheikh Mehmet Effendi began to recite takbir, it stopped. The power of takbir. Its mightiness cannot be understood by the mind. Minds can’t grasp it! Say Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar! If seven oceans are on fire, their fire will be extinguished. Every fire goes out with reciting Allahu Akbar. You should know the Majesty of your Creator! Who created you? You should know the Might and Power of your Lord, and you should announce it. Allahu Akbaru l-‘Akbar. Allahu Akbar takabbara wa tajabbar. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala. He says, learn. Please go on Shah Mardan!
They are sending cars to the burning mountain. Which car can extinguish the fire burning on mountain?! Say Allahu Akbar, the fire will go out. Takbir can extinguish a flaming fire. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar, he said. Then the fire went out. You should teach people. All fire brigades around Lefke were going to try to extinguish the fire on the mountain. Who set fire to the mountain? Can a man like you set a fire on the mountain that you are going to put it out? Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Takabbara wa tajabbar. For this reason write down everywhere: Adab ya Hu. Adab ya Hu. Fire brigades can’t extinguish that fire on the mountain but, if you recite Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar the fire will go out. Allahu Akbar. Teach people this!
Let’s say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. May we be dressed with nur/light. May we be dressed with the nur of Malakut/Heavens. How beautiful. Please go on Shah Mardan! How nicely he is explaining, but they are not paying attention to him! They are not looking to Shah Mardan, to learn the truth. The key for these treasures, the key is Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Say and don’t fear, all treasures will open for you. O people, O people! Strive to learn your humanity. Don’t busy yourselves with other things. The mission of man should be to learn humanity, to know your mission, to serve accordingly, to find honour. If you don’t, He will burn the mountain, He will burn sea! Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa takabbar wa tajabbar. May our Lord forgive us! Who are we? O our Lord! Forgive us. Madad ya Sahibul Maydan, Ya Shah Mardan. May people like Shah Mardan be sent to us! May they come!
A fire on the mountain has begun. How has it begun? The mountain is on fire, they say. How? By a match! Can a match burn the mountain? They are not teaching. Satan has become the teacher for today’s people. Satanic teachers are not teaching to say: Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar. My son said this, or else everywhere would burn. The fire stopped. I was in Jeddah, in Hijaz, they had built a new electric station for a newly built hospital there. Adnan Effendi was there and me. Under that building was a big electric station. A fire began in that station. Everyone was alarmed how to stop it? If that fire had spread, Jeddah would have burned. Adnan Effendi, Sheikh Adnan Effendi went forward and said, Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar. On the 7th takbir, the fire began to decrease. Wear the majesty of reciting Allahu Akbar! Don’t fear! Instead of carrying water to that mountain, if you went there and recited Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, the fire would extinguish at once, and the wind would stop. But they make people ignorant. Allahu Akbar!
Let’s say, Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim, how sweet! How beautiful! Opening all doors, opening all treasures: Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Masha’Allah for our obedient listeners! The words of Shah Mardan are beautiful for those who are looking for the beauties of spirituality. Allah is a cure for all troubles. Say Allah and don’t fear. Don’t busy yourself with other things. Teach this, teach this! If you don’t teach this, fires will not go out. They will burn you too. They will burn mountains. They will burn the seven earths. Allahu Akbar wa takabbar wa tajabbar. Allah. They came and asked a faqir/poor derwish (Mawlana himself) because the mountain was burning, “O would you make dua?”, – we are nothing, but since the order has come, when the Basmala and Takbir was recited, fire began to decrease. Or else not only Yesilirmak but also Kizilirmak (villages) would have burned down! Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar. The spiritual power of UmmuHan Sultan has reached. We are ordered to recite 7 times Basmala towards the fire. After the 7th recitation the fire began to go out. Al Azamatu Lillah, wa l-‘Izzatu Lillah.
Leave dunya turn to Haqq! Then you can find your real station and honour. There is no honour belonging to dunya. Honour is for those who turn towards Haqq. You should learn O people of Cyprus! O people of world! They are saying, mountains are burning! Bre, how could a mountain burn? If you lit all the matches, they can’t burn a mountain! We don’t learn! Teach, if you don’t you will be burned! Not you but they’ll be burned! Burn your evil ego, take it under your feet. Be under the flag of spirituality! Who is Sahibi Mardan, who is Sahibi Maydan enter the path of Shahi Mardan. Don’t fear! Neither in dunya nor in akhirat/hereafter. Tawfiq/success is from Janabi Haqq. We will learn. Fatiha!
If an ant recites Allahu Akbar that fire will be extinguished, Sheikh Mehmet Effendi. Poor ant, if it recites Allahu Akbar towards the fire and says don’t burn us Ya Rabbi, that fire will go out at once. Shame on those not teaching and on those not learning! Pity those who forgot their Lord! Aman Ya Rabbi for those who are not on His way! Shah Mardan is teaching us those ways. May we get refreshed, get happy, get strength. Huu! Huu, Huu! The power of spirituality breaks down the material power. They are not teaching spirituality. Satan banned it. It doesn’t let them to say Allah, so they are always in trouble. Beware! This time we are forced to say these things. If you don’t teach people, next time all will be burned down! No one, nothing will remain unharmed!
Tawba Ya Rabbi, Tawba Astaghfirullah! Close down the dirty places permanently. The fire will go out. As long as those dirty places keep working, you will have more fires. May Allah forgive us! Here you are Shah Mardan! Your friends admire you. May our hearts revive and open up, so that we are filled with the love of Lord. May our Allah forgive us.
