A Logical Investment

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

Mawlana Sheikh Mehmet Adil (QS), sohbat, March 17, 2015.


As-salamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

Madad ya RasulAllah. Audhu billahi min ash-shaytani r-rajim. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. As-salatu wa s- salamu ala Rasulina Muhammadin Sayyidi l-awwalina wa l-akhirin. Madad ya RasulAllah, madad ya Sadati Ashabi RasulAllah, madad ya Mashaykhina, Mawlana Sheikh Abdullah Faiz Dagestani, Mawlana Sheikh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani, Qutub Osman Efendi Hz. madad.

Allah Azza wa Jalla created this world as a tool, a means for investing in akhira.

Shukr to Allah, we are meeting again after several months in presence of the Saint. There are various people, but these people, the saints have the power of attraction. He can bring people from all over the world here. He doesn’t leave it empty and makes it full, shukr to Allah. The burden of this world is keeping people busy. People should actually think about akhira. Allah Azza wa Jalla created this world as a tool, a means for investing in akhira.

It is not logical when a man forgets the main purpose and falls for the tool. He should differentiate between them. If he follows his ego, forgets about the main target and falls for unnecessary things, then suffers from it, he will have lost and in the end go empty handed. There have been many people, billions of people since Adam, alaihi salam. Most of them forgot about the main purpose and fell for unnecessary things. So too with people nowadays. This is important to put into their minds.

Allah Azza wa Jalla gave thousands of examples in Qur’an, and in the hadith of our Prophetﷺ, and in old books. Here is another big example, if you ask people about the richest person in the world now, everyone will know his name, they will say this is the richest man. Who is the richest person of all times in this world? Qarun (Korah). Qarun was a relative of Hz. Musa. He probably was his uncle, a husband of his aunt. He was a close relation of Musa, alaihi salam.

Allah Azza wa Jalla told Musa, alaihi salam to write the Torah in gold. Musa, alaihi salam, told Allah Azza wa Jalla “I don’t have a penny, how can I write in gold?” Allah Azza wa Jalla had given the science of alchemy to Musa, alaihi salam. He turned some element into gold and wrote the Torah. Qarun was a poor man with children and he was a good person. He was praying day and night, fasting, worshipping, doing everything he could. Praying until morning and the children were nearly dying of hunger. Musa, alaihi salam felt upset at this as nothing seemed bad. He was truly a good person.

Musa, alaihi salam then thought as he was such a good man, his children should be in comfort. So he taught him alchemy . When Qarun learned it, he started making money. As the money increased, he forgot the main target, he fell for the tool. He forgot the target and ran after money. He collected so much money that it took 70 camels just to carry the keys of his treasures. He had one thousand guards with golden swords, a thousand men and a thousand women. His richness could not be imagined. He was the richest person of all times in this world. Since Allah created Adam, alaihi salam there has been no man richer than him.

Musa, alaihi salam told him to give zakat for his wealth. First he thought about it, then he decided it’s not possible and told Musa, alaihi salam, he would give it, because if he said no, he would fall in the eyes of his nation. Allah Azza wa Jalla is showing something in Qur’an. Some people with a weak ego would wish they had been as rich as Qarun. Though Musa, alaihi salam spoke to Qarun, he objected, saying he had made everything from his science, collecting so much money. He said “Why should I give zakat?” Musa, alaihi salam was a majestic prophet, he became angry at Qarun.

Qarun realised that because he wouldn’t give up he would make a trap to belittle Musa alaihi salam in front of people so that he may be released from the word he had given. He went to a prostitute and offered to pay her if she claimed that Musa alaihi salam had committed adultery with her. He gave her so much money that the woman agreed. She was doing everything for money anyway. Musa, alaihi salam, was giving a sohba, majestically making a khutba to his nation, telling them not to rob, not to kill, not to commit adultery etc. and that, there is big punishment for adultery.

Qarun got up and asked if it applied to him as well. He said, “If I do it, I will be punished too”. Qarun said, “There is a woman here who claims you committed adultery with her. Stand up, woman, confess”. Allah Azza wa Jalla certainly protects His Prophet. The woman got up and said, “This man paid me so much money so I may accuse you. He’s lying. Musa, alaihi salam is clean. He didn’t do anything. This is the liar”. Musa, alaihi salam struck his stick from anger, and the earth split open taking half of the people down. He begged repentance but Musa alaihi salam didn’t listen, in his majesty, he struck again. The earth swallowed him up with all his people.

All his money and wealth went under the ground as well. Sheikh Efendi said that it is still sinking. All his treasure is going deeper and deeper. Therefore, some people say they’re looking for Qarun’s treasure. There’s nothing like this. They won’t find it. This is a big example for people that this man could live million years with that treasure. But as we said, despite seeing so many miracles in his short life, he was defeated and destroyed by his ego. His money brought him no benefit.

There are thousands of stories like this. People listen but most of them don’t take a lesson from it. Insha’Allah, may we be the ones who take a lesson in order to not forget our true target. The target is to reach Allah. You still live, rich or poor. Allah gives provisions to everyone. Nobody dies while his provision is appointed. If a man dies of hunger, then his rizq has finished, that much was written for him. He dies of hunger. And no one lives longer by eating more. One can die from overeating as well.

Allah Azza wa Jalla said to Musa, alaihi salam, “O Musa, this man asked for mercy from you and you didn’t accept it. He asked 4 times. If he asked Me sincerely once, I would forgive him”. There is big wisdom there. That person has forgotten Allah even in that position. Whether he was tricking for himself to be rescued, or something else, he forgot Allah. Even with a trick, Allah is merciful. He would accept and forgive. No one has the mercy Allah has. The Mercy of Allah is huge and endless. No matter how much you sin and make mistakes, Allah will forgive. It is good news.

If Allah was merciful to the nation of Musa, alaihi salam, He could be a thousand times more to the nation of our Prophetﷺ. During ancient times, in times of Musa, alaihi salam, if someone did wrong, Allah’s anger would cover the whole village. Now if a whole village does wrong and one man does right, everyone will be forgiven and shown mercy for his honor. At least, blessings won’t stop in this world. Therefore, we see Jewish people now, wherever they go, they stick to their religion, but ours, not so much. They treat it very carefully because then Allah had ordered so to Musa, alaihi salam and they follow him ever since.

However they’re still forgetting the main thing that Musa, alaihi salam had said about our Prophetﷺ. They didn’t accept him because he wasn’t from them. They came up to Madina so that he would be one of them. Even then he didn’t and they didn’t accept. Of course, some accepted. But the main majority didn’t accept. They had the greatest scholar Ka’ab al-Ahbar. When he became Muslim, he said “When they come to our Prophet, ask them about me, what kind of person I am. Then after they speak about me, tell them I became Muslim.”

So they came to speak and the talk reached this Sahaba. When asked about him, they said he was one of their greatest scholars. His fathers and grandfathers were from very good people. They described him so well, then our Prophet said “You described him as a good man. If he believes in me, will you believe too?” They said it was impossible and started swearing at this man. They accept truth as they like. They don’t accept the real truth. They have made a picture and they follow it. They follow their ego. It is a virtue to accept the truth. May Allah make us among those accepting the truth and truthfulness, insha’Allah. May Allah be pleased with you.

Wa min Allahi tawfeeq, al-Fatiha.

The Day of Ashura

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

Sultan Sheikh Mehmet Adil Al-Haqqani (qs), sohbat – 30th October, 2014.

Sultan-Shaykh-Mehmet (q)

Be with Allah and don’t be worried. Who, Allah help him, he’s never coming down. They love who Allah love him. “La yadhillu man walayt” (You do not humiliate who You befriend) – this is we every day reading in salat-ul Qunut in Fajr. “Wa la ya’izzu man ‘adayt” (You do not strengthen who You hate). And cannot be, cannot be honorable who Allah not love him, he cannot be honorable. Only who Allah love him, he can be honorable.

And Allah not looking for rich man or beautiful one or clever one. Because all this from Allah. But He look for who love Him. He honors him. He make him high. He help him in everything. Many people since Adam alaihi salam coming 2 kinds of people. One of them Allah love them and praise them. Until now everybody know them, respect them. Another kind, they were against. Allah make them down. When their names saying or something, giving example for bad things. Allah curse them. They are not honorable.

And now you know after 3 or 4 days – Ashura. In Ashura Allah give His beloved servant, beloved Prophet or Awliya. Most of them in this day, they are coming to survive and other people they’ll be cursed. And it is very holy day. At the end Sayyidina Hussain alaihi salam, also in this day he became Shahid/martyr. The highest station before highest station. And who was against them, they’ll be cursed. This is who are with Sayyidina Muhammad (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam) and his family, his Ahl al-Bayt, they are praised. Other who against, not respecting, they’ll be cursed.

We must be careful here to not be, to go… When you making something, shaitan can take you each side, it is not safe. There is big hole right side, left side. When they are, some people, they’re saying “We are loving Ahl al-Bayt” but they are cursing Sahaba/companions. This also not good because Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam), he loved his Sahaba, and he said “Who are saying anything for my Sahaba it hurts me. And what hurts me it hurts Allah Azza wa Jalla.” Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam) saying this. So these people, they are going against Sahaba. Shaitan make them. “You are loving ahl al-bayt, these sahaba not good.” No. This also not good.

Other side, they say “No need to praise, you make shirk/polytheism”. When you say this, Allah Azza wa Jalla He write la ilaha illAllah, Muhammad RasulAllah (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam). How it can be? Also they are in wrong way.

Right way – Ahl as-Sunnah wa l-Jamaa. We love Ahl al-Bayt, we love Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam), and we love Sahaba, all Sahaba. We believe in Sahaba. Allah make us with them inshaAllah.

Ashura day is holy day. Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wasallam) saying he wanted to fast if he reached next year but he couldn’t reach, so we… but not only Ashura day. Ashura means 10th of Muharram. We must fast 9th and 10th, or 10th and 11th. Or you can fast 3 days – 9th, 10th, 11th. It is big reward from Allah Azza wa Jalla. And there is 4 rakat for Ashura. Each rakat you read 11 Ikhlas, and there is dua for this. You can do it inshaAllah before Asr, Ashura day, 10th of Muharram. It is barakah, gift from Allah.

InshaAllah this ummah also to survive and to be peace in country with Syria, Iraq and Turkey and everywhere. And inshaAllah Mahdi alaihi salam comes soon inshaAllah.

Wa min Allahi t-tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.

Allah Likes The Truthful

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

Sultan Sheikh Mehmet Adil Al-Haqqani (qs), sohbat, 29th of September, 2014.

Sultan Sheikh Mehmet

As-salamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu. Audhu billahi min ash-shaytani r-rajim. Bismillahi rRahmani r-Rahim. Madad ya RasulAllah, as-salatu wa s-salamu ala Sayyidina Muhammad Sayyidi lawwalina wa l-akhirin. Madad ya RasulAllah, madad ya Mashayikhana, madad ya Mawlana Sheikh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani, Dastur. Tariqatuna s-sohbah, wa l-khayru fi jam’iyyah.

Audhu billahi min ash-shaytani r-rajim. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. “Mina l-Mu’uminina Rijalun Sadaqu Ma ‘Ahadu Allaha ‘Alayhi Faminhum Man Qada Nahbahu Wa Minhum Man Yantaziru Wa Ma Baddalu Tabdila” (33:23). This holy verse is describing mu’min/believers. They are the ones who are “men”. Who is a “man”? He is trustworthy. He is truthful. If he gives a promise, he does not go back on his word. To whom did they promise? To Allah. They did not change. They don’t run away from their word. Men don’t change their word. They did not change. And like this they are waiting for Allah’s order. Some of them passed away, some of them are waiting, but there is no change. This is the attribute Allah loves. That is why they are called “man”. Who is not like that is not a man.

The characteristic that Allah does not like, that awliya/saints and prophets do not have, is lying. Allah never likes lying. A mu’min/believer cannot be a liar, does not say lies. There is a Hadith Sharif that if a person always says truth, and never lies, that person will be written as sadiq/trustworthy in Allah’s Divine Presence. If another person does the opposite, always lying, always lying, then what happens in the end? He will be written as “liar” in Allah’s Divine Presence. Lying is not a good characteristic, not an acceptable characteristic. And people don’t like liars also. A believer never says lies but a person whose faith is not complete, will lie of course.

To lie is not good of course. Only in a few situations there is permission to lie and that is during war. If you are fighting with enemy, you can’t say where you are. You must trick them. That is something else. Also if two people are not talking to each other, you will say, “he loves you”, although it is not true. Even if he doesn’t like him, that is okay. That lying is acceptable. But if you use religion to lie, and say – I am this, I am that, that is very dangerous. You might win in this worthless dunya, but in akhira you will go to hell. Because Prophet (salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam) said – my whole nation will go to paradise.

The nations of other Prophets, some will go heaven, some hell. Who is the nation of our Prophet? The ones who accept our Prophet. Those who say, “I am not from his nation”, then they will not be counted as his nation. Then they are either from the nation of Isa or Musa and Allah knows what will happen to them. If you don’t accept, you can do as you like. But if the nation of our Prophet do sins, they will go to hell and be cleaned then go to paradise. But to keep yourself from sins is better than to burn thousands of years in hell just because of this short dunya. Make some effort in this short dunya so you will be accepted in Allah’s Divine Presence. And you will be beloved in dunya also. Otherwise, you will not be liked by anyone. You will be cheating everyone. That is why lying is not liked by anyone.

Because our Prophet was called – Amin/honest, Sadiq/trustworthy. Our Prophet never had that bad characteristic. Everyone accepts this. Since he was young, he was called – Muhammad al-Amin. And we are the nation of our Prophet (salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam). That means we must follow him. We must not do the things he dislikes. We must try to have the attributes that he likes and accepts. We must be like that. These attributes are loved by everyone. Whether you accept or not, these characteristics are loved. Our Prophet shows the right way. Be true and don’t lie.

We read this ayah/verse – Minal Mu’minina Rijalun Sadaqu Ma Ahadu Allaha Alayhi Faminhum Man Qada Nahbahu Wa MinhumMan Yantaziru Wama Baddalu Tabdila (33:23) Allah praises these men who are sadaqu…truthful. Truthful and they are behind what they promised. And some of them passed away and some of them still waiting, never changing, never turning back. This is the attribute of ‘man’. To say ‘man’, it is highest station for human being. Rijalullah – the men of Allah. These men, they are not afraid from anything. Not afraid from anyone. This is what Allah’s Prophet salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam loves. They are not lying. What they say is truth. Because the truth is attribute of Prophet salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam. For all prophets, for all awliya Allah/saints.

This attribute, very few people have it. And it is most beautiful attribute. Because you are trusting these people. You give everything, you give your life, you give your treasure, you give everything when you find someone like him, like this people. And they are not changing, not lying. You can never find any awliya or prophet saying any lie. Even if they kill them, they are not changing. Lying is the worst thing in the Divine Presence of Allah. And the Prophet (sws) and even normal people are not liking a liar. Allah ‘aza wa jalla said, there is hadith from Prophet (salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam) – The man… they are not even saying “man” for these people. Some person, if he still continues to say lies and not truth, and it becomes like a habit for him, Allah ‘aza wa jal write him to be a liar – this man is a liar. What was his name, Samir or Sameer, something like this, he was liar Sameer. Something like this, he is continuing to lie. And liars are the ones far from Allah.

And other men, they still continue to say truth and speak right until they write in Divine Presence of Allah – he is truthful, Sadiq. Sadiq is an attribute of Prophet salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam. And before he became a prophet, and from childhood, they are calling him – Muhammad al-Amin, Muhammad as-Sadiq – The truthful, the trustworthy Muhammad salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam. And it is nice because you cannot find even one drop or one atom to be… he must be very trustful. And because all this universe Allah created for him and he, no need to say any un-truth. Everything, as-Sadiq al-Amin. We are believing in this. But satan is a liar. He beginning to lie from jannah/paradise until taking Adam and Hawa from jannah with lying. You see how a lie becomes bad. From our father Adam and Hawa/Eve, it took them from jannah. It is not good attribute. You must be careful from this.

But there is some place that you can only do, very few place to help in war, when you are fighting with enemy, you cannot tell them truth that we are here or there. Maybe you can show them you are somewhere but you go away from there because they will kill you. And it will be not benefit for Islam, so you can do, cheating them. And to make between Muslims who are fighting together, if I go to one of them – this man loves you, this person is not bad, you must be together, Also this. But if you do only for your benefit, it is very bad. It is not good because this life very short. Mu’min/believers not lying. But Muslim, when we say Muslim, he can do anything. Prophet salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam said – other nations who are not following me, Prophet (sws), some of them in hell, some of them in paradise, but my ummah all in paradise. Who is ummah? Who believe in Prophet (sws). If he not believe, he is free, he can go where he wants, many options. But the best one to be with Prophet (sws) because his whole ummah in jannah, even sinners. But sinners they will be punished hundred years, thousand years, hundred thousand years in hell. After, they come to paradise also.

But other nations, some of them will be in paradise, others will be forever in hell. So the option is open. For this we are saying – the liar, the level of lying, the level of his lying, if it is too much, especially if lying in court. They call it – shahid zoor. Lying in court is the worst one. It’s like drinking alcohol or zina/ adultery, it is from kaba’ir/big sins. So until he finishes his punishment, after that he comes to paradise. But no need to be thousands of years in hell to make a small amount of lying. You must be careful and you must be believer. And you must be first one to be a ‘man’. Man…even ladies they are truthful, they are like man. This is what Allah saying. Prophet (salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam) praising to be a ‘man’.

Wa min Allah it-tawfiq. Fatiha.
