Allah loves beauty not ugliness. He sent 124,000 prophets to train mankind and teach them adab. With adab you can shine like a star. Learn from the stories related in The Quran. Pharaoh wanted to be loved but he went too far in asking to be worshiped. Leave dunya and leave fighting over dunya. Love your Lord, the One Who created you.
Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim
Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi ق , Sohbat of the 12th of September, 2013
Let us say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim, and be honoured with Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Go ahead O Shahi Mardan, your yaran admire you. Go ahead and may some nur from your Nur, knowledge from your knowledge, come to us. May adab from your beautiful adab come to us. May the power, strength, adab in you come to us also and we will no longer live for dunya. Hasha, who lives for dunya is not Man. Let us say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Saying this is the most important matter. Shahi Mardan, your yaran admire you. Dastur, dastur – May we also be given from your holy words, with your permission, and we will learn and teach.
May we be beautiful, may we not be ugly. Allah Almighty Jalla Jalaluhu wa Amma Nawaluhu, does not like the ugly ones. No, “InnAllaha Jameelun wa yuhibbul jamaal”. Allah Almighty is the Possessor of the Absolute Beauty. He loves beauty, He does not like ugliness. Go ahead O Shahi Mardan, may your speech be a cure for us. O Shahi Mardan! May our day be good. May our hearts be in joy. May our end be good. May we be ahbab – may we be beloved to the great ones. We don’t know, let us learn from you O Shahi Mardan. MashaAllahu kana wa ma lam yasha’ lam yakun. Our Lord, our subhan, our Sultan. He loved us & created us. Love your Lord, O Man! Love the ones whom Allah loves, O beautiful Man! Allahumma inni dhaifun wa qawwi dha’fi fi ridak. We are weak, O our Lord. May our assembly be an assembly of blessings, be an assembly of safety, be an assembly of Nur towards the way of Your Good Pleasure. Go ahead O Shahi Mardan. Weak servants! Qawwi dha’fi fi ridak. May Allah grant us strength towards the way of His Good Pleasure. Go ahead O Shahi Mardan. For the honour of that Beloved Prophet, Shahi Mardan explains to us. May we accept it & learn how to be Man.
Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Allahu Dhu-l Jalal sent 124.000 Prophets. Why did He send these 124.000 Prophets? Go ahead O Shahi Mardan. Your speech is so beautiful. He sent 124.000 Prophet, teachers. He sent teachers, He sent them to teach adab. A horse has no value if it is not disciplined. They bring a wild horse and its trainer disciplines it. It is worth a fortune when its worth was very little before. Man, for this Man… O Shahi Mardan, go ahead. “You should call Man – Hazrat al-Insan” he says. Allahu Akbar. You should glorify the one whom Allah Almighty created, Hazrat al-Insan. Dastur O Shahi Mardan, your yaran admire you. Yes, you should call Man, “Hazrat al-Insan”. Learn adab! Don’t be without adab. He sent 124.000 Prophets- Allahu Dhu-l Jalal, wa l-Jamali wa l-Kamali wa l-Qudrati wa l-Azamati wa l-Ikram; sent 124.000 Prophets. And why did He send them? Go ahead O Shahi Mardan. Your yaran admire you. He sent 124.000 Prophets, for what? To inform us about the value of Men. Man is Hazrat al-Insan. Don’t make him low! To humiliate Man is kufr/unbelief! Exalt him because his Lord created Man, and created him exalted. He granted him an exalted rank. Man is the Hazrat al-Insan.
O our Lord, our Subhan. For the honour of Shahi Mardan, may we be granted to learn good adab from Shahi Mardan. Man with adab becomes like a star that shines in the sky. The one without adab resembles a dim star. Don’t be a dim star! Be a shining star! Allahu Akbar. Allah Almighty created Man like a shining star, like a star that shines brightly. Let us say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim and our star shines. What is it that makes our star shine? Go ahead O Shahi Mardan. It is Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. It gives a glow. It makes our star shine. Say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim and your star shines! Don’t be a dim star. Be a decorated star- decorated with the Nur of Heavens, decorated with the Nur of Asuman/sky. Be a star.
Give us power, O Shahi Mardan. Teach us so that we also become a shining star. Don’t be a dim star. Be a shining star. 124.000 Prophets came. All of them came to inform us of the honour of Man. Each Prophet brought a Nur. Go ahead O Shahi Mardan. Shahi Mardan speaks from that Nur. Each Prophet brought but no one was able to carry what the Prophet of the End of Times brought. No one can carry the Nur that the Prophet of the End of Times brought. Allahu Akbar wa lillahi l-hamd. Tuba thumma tuba. Thumma tuba (Good tiding and good tidings and good tidings). How happy are those who follow the Prophet of the End of Times. Who doesn’t follow him is shaytan. Naudhu Billah, we seek refuge in Allah. Go ahead O Shahi Mardan. Your yaran admire you. Don’t follow him, it will dim you. Follow Shahi Mardan and he will make you shine like a star. This is the mission of the 124.000 Prophets.
The Prophet did not come to decorate dunya. No. If he came to decorate dunya, he would have had palaces built and would have lived in palaces. The Prophet did not come for the ornamentation of dunya. That Prophet whose glory is high was sent to give the ornament, beauty, perfection to man. O glorious Prophet! O Shahi Mardan! Your speech makes your yaran full of admiration. Who does not admire becomes an animal. What else can he be? Allah Allah. Asta’idhu billah. “Faqsusi Al-Qasasa La’allahum Yatafakkaruna” (7:176). Is it not like this? It is the Order of Allah Almighty to the Prophets, to the Sultan of the Prophets: “Relate the stories” He says. “Explain the stories to the people – inform of their ranks in a way everyone can understand”. For this Allah Almighty told various kinds of stories of the Prophets in the Holy Quran. Who reads it does not get stressed – the heart of who reads the Holy Quran finds happiness, finds relief; his body finds afiyah/well-being. He is filled with love for his Lord. He is filled with the longing for his Lord’s servanthood.
What did even Pharaoh want? He wanted the people to love him alone, to respect him alone, but in the end he went too far & he ordered, “Worship Me” he said. At that time he went astray. When he said “I am the Ma’bud/who is worshipped”, he went astray. And what was his punishment? He was drowned in the sea. He said to Moses: “There is no God except me”. Hasha thumma kalla. Pharaoh wanted to say the secret that was with him – “I am the only person on earth who asks for everyone’s respect”. Asking and asking, finally he said “I am God” and he lost. Allah Allah Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala. Anta l-Wahidu l-Qahhar, You are our Lord. Everything is Your servant O Lord. You created, the order & decree belongs to You only O Lord. All the Prophets that came spoke from Your Beauty, spoke from Your love & longing O Ghani Sultan.
Our Allah. O our Lord, we ask from You. “Ask”, He says, “you are asking from such a Lord that there is no end to His treasures, there can be no end to His love & longing. There can be no match for His Beauty”. Allahu Akbar! “There is nothing that can be with Him in His Might and Majesty because He is Who created everything. Acknowledge Who created you”. Well done! Go ahead O Shahi Mardan, how beautifully are you speaking. “Love Who created you” he says. Love Him. He is your Ma’bud. O Man! Acknowledge Who created you. Be servants/make service for Him. Let us not say “idolize Him”. Allah is not to be idolized but one should be a servant to Allah. May Allah dress us with the dress of servanthood. This is what we want.
For what do we live? Who lives for eating & drinking is an animal. Who lives for servanthood becomes Sultan. O our Lord! May You fill us with Your love & longing. Who is the center of the love & longing? Who is in the centre? Rasul-i Kibriya (ﷺ). The Prophet of the End of Times (ﷺ) is filled with love & longing. To love him, to love the Prophet – that is what faith is. What a beautiful Prophet is that Prophet (ﷺ). You wouldn’t be able to look at his face for long; it was not possible to look. Such a beauty & magnificence is granted to the Prophet of the End of Times. He didn’t appear that way to the people. If he did, all people would collapse, fall down in sajda and say “This is our Lord”. He didn’t appear like this. Subhan Allah. Sultan Allah. How ignorant the people of this time have become. They ran far from the realities. They are not seeking them. They have fallen to fighting. Go ahead O Shahi Mardan. Your yaran admire you. Who does not admire is an animal. O yaran of Shahi Mardan, how beautiful is your speech.
That Prophet is the only Prophet who represents Allah Almighty – he is who is the Khaliph of Allah Almighty. Our glorification is to him, (through him) it reaches our Lord. Glorify the Prophet of the End of Times, that glorification reaches Allah Almighty. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Don’t fight, O people! The people of the End of Times have fallen to fighting. Why do you fight? What is the fight for? What did Pharaoh say to Prophet Moses? “Ya Musa, ‘In Turidu ‘Illa ‘An Takuna Jabbaran Fi l-‘Ardi” (28:19). “Do you want to be a tyrant on earth?” Is that what you claim? No. It was him (Pharaoh) who wanted to be jabbar/ the tyrant. Being Al-Jabbar, The Mighty, belongs to Allahu Dhu-l Jalal. Prophet Moses is a servant, so was Pharaoh. But Pharaoh did not admit his servanthood and he vanished. Allahu Allah, Allahu Allah.
Man should know about his Manhood, should know his honour. Don’t play with this dunya, don’t strive for this dunya. A bowl and some soup from dunya is enough to satisfy your hunger. You can’t eat the whole pot. A bowl of food satisfies your hunger. Know your limits and know what you should ask for. Be a servant to your Lord and He will make you Sultan. Fatiha.
Allah Allah. Go ahead O Shahi Mardan. Your yaran admire you. You teach us adab. Adab is more valuable than dhahab/gold – adab is more valuable than gold. Have adab and you may be respected. Who has no adab is expelled. Who has adab is accepted. People don’t teach this now. Shame on them. They teach people how to collect the trash of dunya. Dunya is trash, dunya is not gold. Gold is Man. Try to collect Men, not dunya. Fatiha.
Go ahead O Shahi Mardan. Your yaran admire you. May Allah Almighty grant us well-being and strength to keep these ways. Amin. Wa salamun ala l-mursalin khususan ala Sayyidi l-mursalin wa salamun ala l-hadirin wa l-ghaibin wa l-muminin wa salamun ala l-muminin Ya Rabbi.
Fatiha. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar wa lillahi l-hamd.
