What is our task? To walk upon the path of the Beloved and to glorify him. What an honour to be part of the Ummah of the Muḥammad ﷺ. Ask for that and nothing else.
Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim
Allahumma Salli ala Muhammadin wa ala ‘aly Muhammadin wa Sallim

Sohbat of the 16th of March, 2014.
As-salamu alaikum. O Yaran! O Shah Mardan! Welcome. You have brought barakah. You have carried strength to my soul. Let us say Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim. This is the key, O Shaykh Mehmed, my son and my grandson, that unlocks the doors of all treasures. Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim, aman. Majesty is granted to His Beloved, to His Habib al-Labib. His Beloved is granted. Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim. Thanks to Allah Almighty, who made us among the ummah (community) of His Beloved, O my son! He has given us strength/power. We have no power. Power is bestowed, not acquired. Power is bestowed. If they wish, we have power. If it is not granted, we are zero.
Welcome O Yaran, Shah Mardan. Shah Mardan, the beloved of the Prophet, says welcome. He is Shah Mardan. Welcome to the gathering. Let us expand. Let us not be as a dry log on earth. No. In this world, we will be honored by servanthood to our Lord because He made us of the ummah (community) of His Beloved, His Honorable Beloved. The ummah (community) of Muhammad. O our Lord, our Subhan. The Master of the universe is the Rasul al-Kibriya. I am not able to stand up but there is no limit to the number of angels that stand up when his name is mentioned. Our Prophet is the Rasul al-Kibriya. He is the Beloved of the Lord of Heavens. He is the Master of the universe. He tells us to stand up. Stand for a thousand years for the salam of the Habib al-Kibriya. Give greetings. Give greetings to the Habib al-Kibriya Alfu Alfu, a thousand thousand, Salat, Alfu Alfu Salam to you O RasulAllah. All beauty is bestowed upon you, O glorious Prophet, O glorious prophet, O glorious prophet.
How great. What a blessing for us, O my son what a glory that He made us among the ummah of the Prophet. He made us believe and we have had faith. We have had faith in the Beloved of Allah. Likewise, Rabbul Izzah, the Almighty loved him. We also love. Love! Love the one whom Allah has loved. Get rid of the one He has not loved. I seek strength/power? What strength do you seek? I seek strength/power in order that I mention the honored name of that glorious Prophet and stand up. Whenever his glorious name is mentioned let us stand up. Stand up. Where the Sultan’s name is mentioned those in the gathering stand up. Is that not so? What for? Because of his glory. The pride of the universe, Fakhr al-Kainat. Al-hamdu-lillah. The one in whom the universe takes pride; for whose honor it is created, is loved and made beloved, the Beloved of Allah. We became his ummah (community). What an honor. Do not seek another honor. Do not seek another honor.
Let us say Allah, Huu. O My Beloved, come forward. O My Beloved, and the one for whose love I have created the universe. O My beloved, come forward. Come, and be in My Presence. No one can stand in My Presence other than you. Allah Dhul Jalal Subhanahu wa Ta’ala. [This is] the rank of the Prophet. Come forward, come to My Presence. No one other than you, may enter this presence. You come forward. You may enter. What glory, what a glory for us. Shaykh Mehmed Efendi, thanks to God. Thanks to God, our Lord has made us among his (ﷺ) ummah (community).
O My Beloved, come forward, come to My Presence. My loved one, O My Beloved. I do not make those who love you die. Those who love you are alive. You live, they will live also. The honor I have bestowed upon you has not been granted to anyone else. It is the greatest honor. La ilaha illAllah Muhammadun Rasulullah. Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam. Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam. The greatest Name. La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah. The greatest honor for His servants. He dressed His Beloved with the greatest honor. The Almighty Lord. O Muhammad, O Muhammad, come forward! La ilaha illa Anta Subhanaka ya Rabbi. Ana abduka l-‘ajiz. I have bestowed glory upon you; not like that on the preceding ones, nor those who followed.
Say Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim. Let your heart open. Let the treasures open. You also have treasure, those treasures open your treasures also. Say La ilaha illAllah Muhammadun Rasulullah. Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam. Let it open. Closed treasures open. O My beloved! O Muhammad Mustafa, come forward! What a beautiful addressing. That address has not been for anyone, except the Prophet. Glorify the Prophet, O Shaykh Mehmed, my son. Glorify him, let us glorify him. What is our way? To glorify the honored Prophet. What is our task? To walk upon his path, to glorify him. Masha’Allah. What a great path this is. This is the path Allah has ordained for His Beloved. Allah Allah. O Muhammad, come forward! O, the glorified one! the loved one, the honored one, My Beloved, come forward; come close to My Presence.
To Prophet Moses: “fakhla’ na’layk” (20:12). To Prophet Moses, on the Mountain of Tur it was ordered: “Take off your shoes.” Allah addressed His Beloved: “Tread upon My Throne, stand in My Presence, O My Beloved.” O RasulAllah, who has the ability to praise you after our Lord has praised you? We do not have the strength to praise, O my son. Take his path, keep his love, do not stray from his path. The world is rubbish, do not ask for it. What we seek is to see the glorious face of the Beloved. When he calls: “O my ummah. O my ummah!” Let us be among them, O my son. Try to be among the ummah of the Beloved.
Garbage people claim to be this or that. O garbage! Even the toilet does not let you in. Astaghfirullah. If you ask for honor, be among the ummah of the Prophet, so that you find honor. Find honor. What kind of honor? Nobody can describe or express that honor, O my son. O our Lord, give us strength. Dress us in the majesty of those who serve the Prophet. O yaran. Shah al-Mardan. Let us open. Let us open. The one who loves you does not die. O My Beloved. Allah Allah. How beautiful. O Prophet. O glorious Prophet. Universes abandon themselves for the sake of your name, let alone your self. May Allah Almighty consider us to be one of them. May Allah make you among those who bear his love and who follow his path. Fatiha.
I will open. I will gain strength. I will destroy the dominion of shaytan and knock down the paths of his followers. This is the least order to me. O glorious Prophet! bestow compassion and intercession upon us and upon my offspring. Grant us to walk upon your path easily. Fatiha.
Allah Allah. Allahu Akbarul Akbar, Allahu Akbarul Akbar, Allahul Akbarul Akbar. Thanks to God that He made us say such few words. Today, our state. Do not heed our state. They will dress you with a state. Welcome. O yaran, Shah Mardan. Let us say Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim. Our Lord has given us honor from the honor of His Beloved. “wa laqad karramna bani Adam” (17:70) We have honored the children of Adam. With what? With grace, reverence and veneration up until the end, without beginning, let alone an end. Our Lord has dressed with that honor. He called My Beloved, O My Beloved. We are grateful to be among his ummah. Fatiha.
O my son! Shaykh Mehmed Efendi, my grandson announce the glory of that honored Prophet everywhere. Do not be afraid, it will open. You will run over like a bulldozer. O glorious Prophet. O glorious Prophet. Fatiha.
How beautiful. O yaran, Sahah al-Mardan O yaran, Shah al-Mardan. Your yaran (friends) are admirers of you. If we understood, the world would be different. O my son, make them say at least 100 salawats each day as awrad. May Allah be pleased with you. Recite [on me]. You are lions. I love Mehmed, I love them all. He is a lion. One of the deputies of the Prophet by the leave of God.
