A man should know the honor of being human. Walk in the way of the Men of Allah.
Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim
The Way of Allah’s Men
Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshbandi ق
Sohbat of the 11th of February, 2014
As-salamu alaikum, O lovers of Shah Mardan. Let’s say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. What a beauty, what an honor, what a blessing to say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Aman ya Rabbi. Aman ya Rabbi. If only we stood in qiyam, if only we always stood in qiyam. What is its value? What’s wrong in standing always in qiyam in the presence of Rabb-ul Izzat? There is reverence to Rabb-ul Izzat.
As-salamu alaikum, O lovers of Shah Mardan. Let’s give salam and receive salam. You can’t take without giving, Mehmet. Give and take. Rabb-ul Izzat gave to His Beloved. What did He give to His Habib? He knows Himself, others don’t know. Our Mawla dressed us in that honor. He dressed His Beloved with His own hands. How beautiful. If you were like a dog wagging its tail, what would its value be? With a tail… Every creature has a tail. Our son, sheikh Mehmet Effendi, a human is not with a tail. Does he have one? No. Every creature is unique. The honor of a human is different. A man should know the honor of a human. You should know.
Rabb-ul Izzat, Janab-ul Rabb-ul Izzat, Janab-ul Haqq: “Khalaqna l-insana fee ahsani taqweem” (95:4) “I created a man in the most beautiful form.” Not ordinary. It’s not ordinary – the nature of a human. Allah Allah. Our Allah, our Subhan, our Sultan. The Lord of His Beloved created everything beautiful. He granted beauty to humans, which is not given to other creatures.
Marhaba, O lovers of Shah Mardan. MashaAllah. Sit in the assembly of lions, not among “kilab”. “Kilab” is dogs. Don’t sit in the assembly of dogs! Sit in the assembly of lions. O man, khalifat-ul Shah Mardan, khalifas of Shah Mardan. Their faces are clean, they are clean, their work is clean. They are clean from inside and outside. This is about a human. O our Lord, You appointed Your Beloved with Your great favours to dress us like this. Habib-ul Kibriya (ﷺ) all angels bowed to him, no one stayed standing. When our Sultan-ul Anbiya passes, no one is in qiyam, everyone is in ruku. There are ones in sajda too. Allah Allah. RabbunAllah HasbunAllah. RabbunAllah HasbunAllah. May our weariness be gone, my son. Be like a lion. A nation given by Janab-ul Haqq to His Beloved is such a nation. May Allah let us be among that nation. If so, say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Say! Say so that you are worthy and have a right to enter the assembly of Sultans. Say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim.
O our Lord, our Subhan, You loved Your Beloved and made the Universe love him. Revere him, love him, step where his feet have stepped. Because that step “Wattabia’ sabeela man anaba ilayya” (31:15) Allahu Akbar. Our Prophet Alaihi afdala salatu wa atamu taslima. An order for him. Order your nations: Wattabia’ – Follow. Sabeela man anaba ilayya. (31:15) (the way of those who turn toward Me) – Walk on the way I walk. You’ll find the peace of Rabb-ul Izzat. Our Allah, our Subhan, our Sultan. Don’t let this world make you busy. No. May your business not be dunya. Your business is the way of the Beloved of Janab-ul Mawla who created you. Walk on that way. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. You will have neither troubles, nor sadness. You’ll be open, relieved, with light, loved and loveable.
MashaAllah, mashaAllahu kana. What Allah wants will happen, what He doesn’t want won’t work. May Allah let us join the way of His Beloved. The way that our Master shows. Sabeela; ahsan sabeela, the most beautiful way. Where does the way of our Master lead? It leads to the presence of Allah Jalla Jalaluhu. What else do you look for? Nothing of this world will help you gain something. “Ayyaman ma’dudatan” (2:80) “Just a few days.” Mess around too. You didn’t come to this world to mess around. No, not to mess around. Join, walk on the way of the Habib, the Beloved of Rabb-ul Izzat, who honored you with the honor of a human. You’ll open. Rijalullah, beloved servants of Allah. Yes. Walk on their way. Yes, Rijalullah.
May our souls open. Tariqatuna s-sohba. Our way is the way of association. They bring light which will open your souls. Possessors of light – Rijalullah are those carrying light. Ask for light. Don’t look at rocks and dirt. The Sultan-ul Anbiya is the one who will take you to the presence of your Lord. Look for your way, find and see. What is there and what is not. O mankind. O mankind, don’t forget that you were created – You were not created for this world. No. You were not created to be a servant of this world. If we are to serve this world, hasha min-al hudhur, all animals are in service. All of them do that service, they serve you. Everything is your servant. Open up. Look for your way to your Lord, to the Beloved of your Lord. You’ll find your peace. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar wa Lillahi l-hamd.
Say, O our Lord, our Subhan, You sent us on the way of Your Beloved. The way of Your Beloved leads to You. The one who doesn’t know this is lower than a four-legged animal. Guard your honor. Guard your human honor. O our Lord, for the sake of Your Beloved, send holy servants to us, who will teach us this. He is sending. Follow, follow. Allah Allah, SubhanAllah, SultanAllah. For the spirituality of Hz. Ummuhan, (Hala Sultan) who has been lying there for 1,500 years; for the honor of our holy Sultan, may we be given strength to our bodies, strength to our minds, light to our faces, joy to our hearts. May our ends be good. Everything, even an ant, will serve you then. Don’t quarrel, don’t argue. Argument does not benefit men. Argument is the job of animals. You hold an honored maqam/station. Look to your maqam. The Sultan has instructed this, our Ummuhan Sultan. May we learn it bit by bit too.
MashaAllahu kana wa ma lam yasha’lam yakun. A holy word opening the treasures of heavens and earths, Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Say it and don’t fear. Fatiha.
Read on me, Mehmet. The rank of Mehmet is different. The rank of this Mehmet, my son, is different. I’m talking according to our condition, they are making me talk. According to our understanding. He will open, my son, inshaAllah. O our Lord, our Subhan, our Sultan. May there be relief in our hearts, an expansion in our understanding for the honor of the Great Habib. May we not be busy with eating and drinking. O our Lord, may we rush and run for Your servanthood. Fatiha.
We have a job of servanthood, servanthood on the way of Allah. Complete that job. Run towards servanthood to Rabb-ul Izzat. Don’t leave it, don’t sit idle. Work and help. According to your efforts and help, you’ll be given a rank, you’ll be given honor. May Allah increase your honor, my son. These few words are what Hz. Shah Mardan offered from his words to those present in his assembly. May we receive our share. May we receive a share from our Ummuhan Sultan as well. Al-Fatiha.
At-tahiyyatu Lillahi… Isn’t it? At-tahiyyatu Lillahi was-salawatu wa l-barakat. At-tahiyyat is for JanabAllah. All compliments and worship is for Janab-ul Haqq. At-tahiyyatu Lillahi was-salawatu wat-tayyibatu As-salaamu ‘alayka ayyuha n-Nabbiyyu. Allah is giving salam to the Prophet. Look at the honor. At-tahiyyatu Lillahi was-salawatu wat-tayyibatu. As-salaamu ‘alayka ayyuha n-Nabbiyyu. What a great honor is Allah’s salam. May Allah grant that honor to those who can carry it, to the holy ones. May a share come to us as well. Fatiha.
How are you, Haji Mehmet?
HM: Shukr to Allah, we are good.
M: Look. He went around. How many seeds he planted where he went. He planted seeds of love. My dear grandson planted them. Who took from those seeds opened. More will open. May Allah increase your rank. Your father’s and grandfathers’. Always read salat-ul salam for our Master, don’t make it less. More of anything else is never enough. As long as you’re on the way of Allah, no harm for you, only benefit. Fatiha.
Try to be closer to the Habib-ul Kibriya by any means. Be among loved ones in his presence. How beautiful. Fatiha.
This is my dear grandson. He made a trip for about a week. How many souls he bound to the way of Allah. Well done for him. Well done. May we strive to turn hearts towards the way of Allah. May we try to tie them to the Habib with love. Leave the rubbish of dunya. May Allah increase your light. Yours, your father’s and your grandfathers’. Fatiha.
Look to your duty. Whatever is on this way, pay attention to it. Go ahead, don’t fear.
Read on me. Read, my son. MashaAllah.
