Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi (Qs), Sohbat of the 11th of July, Ramadan 2013.

As-salamu ‘aleykum, ayyuha l-hadirun. Come closer, seat yourself comfortably, be easy. Allah has commanded us to be at ease. Formality; He has not imposed formality on us, no. We are not animals. An animal carries its burden, but it is happy to do so. We are human beings; mankind has a special kind of honour. Man is not a beast. Man has honour.

Dastur, ey Shah-i Mardan. Ey Yaran Shah-i Mardan! How lovely you are! Be beautiful. When we can be beautiful, why should we be ugly? Allah has created us to be beautiful. He has not created us to be ugly. inna-llaha jamilun yuhibbu l-jamal – Allah is Beautiful and He loves beauty. Masha’Allah la quwwata illa bi-llah. There is no power but with Allah. qawwi dhafi fi ridak, O Lord, strengthen me in my weakness for Your Pleasure.

Marhaba. Ey Yaran Shah-i Mardan. A greeting comes to us, and we, too, give a greeting, to the Lovers of Shah-i Mardan, to his beloved friends. Mashā’Allahu kān, wa mā lam yashā’ lam yakūn. Welcome, O head of this gathering, travelers of the way, and people in general. Welcome! May you be happy and joyful. Thanks be to Allah. May our assembly here be blessed. May our assembly be the assembly of Shah-i Mardan. A pure assembly. Let us at least be listeners in the assembly of that Lion. Come to us, ey Shah-i Mardan. Come and speak to us. Awaken us, Wake us up. To awaken, that is Shah-i Mardan’s task, al-hamdulillah wa shukru-li-llah, wa salātu wa s-salām ‘ala Habībillah, Sayyidi l-awwalin wa l-akhirin.

Thanks to Allah. It has been granted to us once again to live to see this blessed month. We are in the blessed month of Ramadan. May our faces shine with light, may our hearts be filled with light. This is what our Lord Almighty wishes. Allah is Beautiful, inna-llaha jamilun yuhibbul jamal, Allah Almighty is the Master of Absolute Beauty. Allahu Dhu l-Jalal, He says: I love what is beautiful. He created everything in Beauty. Allah Almighty created us to be beautiful. He did not create us to be ugly. O our Lord, You who possess Absolute Glory and Sovereignty, the servants of such a glorious Lord cannot be contemptible. You must know this. Jalīl Allah, Jalla Jalāluhu.. The servants of Allah the Glorious, Subhānahu wa Ta‘āla, cannot be contemptible. He is such a Sultan that He does not dress His servants in contempt. God forbid! Impossible!

O our Lord. You have dressed us in the loveliest dress, for which even the noble angels envied us, but He told them, No! This robe of honour is not for you. I will dress you in another one. This one is My khalifa, My representative. Amān, ya Rabbi. What an honour! Then the angels fell silent. Come, O Shah-i Mardan, your words have power. The saints are dressed with the attribute of Shah-i Mardan, every saint possesses this attribute. Shaykh Mehmet Effendi, every saint must have some of Shah-i Mardan’s awe-inspiring quality. He cannot be piteous and detestable. Those servants who are spiritually linked to Shah-i Mardan can never be contemptible. Allah created the sons of Adam, and He did not make them despicable. Shaykh Mehmet Effendi, God forbid! Allah did not say: I created him to be pitiful and he is My representative, God forbid! masha’Allahu kān. Allah, Allah. What Allah has willed came to be. Would Allah say: This is My deputy, and I have made him despicable?

O ignorant people, you simply will not learn. Learn from Shah-i Mardan, what beautiful speech. Allahu Dhu l-Jalal says: wa la-qad karramna Bani Adama (17:70) The children of Adam have been given Divine Grace, He said. O our Lord, dress us too in that grace, said the angels. No. I have given it to them. Come, O Shah-i Mardan, the news you bring is exactly suitable for your beloved friends. Let us say: Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. If you forgot the Basmala, you have forgotten everything. If you forgot the Basmala, they also will forget you. When you speak the Basmala, they will not overlook you.

Come, O Shah-i Mardan, Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. O Lovers of Shah-i Mardan. He came with the Basmala, the source of adab. The face of one who says Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim will be beautiful, it cannot be ugly. Allah has not created the sons of Adam to be ugly, God forbid! Our Lord has not created the sons of Adam, whom He named as His deputy, to be ugly, God forbid! What makes us ugly, and what wishes to make us ugly is the evil devil. The evil devil and our own nafs are what make us ugly. O Lord, thanks be to You, praise and glory be to You for the Lights that descend in this blessed holy month of Ramadan. Let us love, O my listeners, O Lovers of Shah-i Mardan who are assembled here. Let us rejoice.

What do they say when looking into a mirror? Allahumma ahsanta khalqi fa ahsin khuluqi. How lovely You have created us. Look in the mirror and speak these words. How lovely You have made us to be, O our Lord. For the sake of the Beloved of Allah You have given us, You have dressed us with a drop from that Beauty Ocean, O my Lord. To reach that great honour, to give thanks, that is our duty, our very first duty. Look into the mirror, and say: al-hamdulillahi lladhi ahsana khalqi Praise and thanks to our Lord who has created us to be lovely. Praise Him. The Lord says, I will increase the blessing.

Come, O Shah-i Mardan. Speak of the enemy of man. When Allah Almighty raised and seated man upon the throne of grandeur, on the throne of majesty over all creation, shaytan flew into a rage. For shaytan harboured jealousy in his heart, it seems. He had maliciously tried to seat himself on that throne. When it was given to another, he rebelled against the Lord. Aman ya Rabbi. Make us not of those rebellious ones! He said, I was going to occupy that throne. I have filled all heavens and earths with my worship, and it was my wish to settle upon that throne of authority. Word went out to him: No, this is not for you. I have given to My deputy this robe of dignity and grandeur which is made of beauty from My Divine Beauty, majesty from My Divine Majesty, from My Divine Perfection and My Divine Glory and Honour. Him I have seated upon this throne; Man, the sacred human being.

Thanks be to our bountiful Lord who has made us to be of the sons of Adam who have been honoured. wa la-qad karramnā Banī Adama (17:70) The Sultan of Awliya, Shaykh Mehmet Effendi, Grandshaykh used to mention this verse in every assembly: wa la-qad karramna Bani Adama (17:70) For the sake of My illustrious Glory, I have placed mankind at such a high station as no other creature may ever reach. Thanks be to Allah. He does not give us weakness. Ey yaran Shah-i Mardan. O my beloved friends, O my companions! Mark my words. What we are given to say, what comes from above, it is from the words of Allah’s Beloved, from the word of authority of him whom Allah created as the Prince of Creation. He was given the ability of addressing people, our noble Prophet (sallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam). He was seated upon the throne, Haji Mehmet.

Abu Bakr, you don’t know him, you never knew him. Did you? The daughter of Abu Bakr, she had a child. He sat like this, in the assembly. This is a story. But I, we saw this. There were flies. This child, maybe he was a little stupid, or simple? He was a slow child. There were flies buzzing all around. His mother said to him, Drive them away. Wave your hand to drive the flies away. The child went like this. He wouldn’t raise his hand any higher, only up to here. Like a fool, a simpleton. Allah has not created us to be fools. God forbid! God forbid! Man is not stupid. He is not a fool. He does not go about aimlessly, nor is he shameless. Man is the Sultan of that throne. Man is decorated with the rank of authority conferred upon him by the Lord of Might and Glory.

Know yourself, O mankind. If you know who you are, you will have adab. It is when you do not know yourself, that you lose your adab. Come, O Shah-i Mardan. The human being, Allahu akbar. khalaqa l-insan; ‘allamahu l-bayan. (55:3,4) Is it not so, Shaykh Mehmet Effendi? ar-Rahman. khalaqa l-insan; ‘allamahu l-bayan. (55:3,4) Shah-i Mardan, the Prophet’s inheritor, who was given of this knowledge, the legacy of the father of the Prophet of the Last Times, Sayyidna ‘Ali, Shah-i Mardan, it was given to him. Addabanī Rabbī, said the Prophet, ‘alayhi ssalatu wa s-salam. My Lord has taught me adab. Who is there? Who could be more advanced in adab than he?

Who makes man to be lacking in adab? It is shaytan. Shaytan tries by all his means to separate people from the honour of humankind. Even now, and up to the Day of Judgement, shaytan is working to take away men’s honour. You cannot take it, He(swt) says. What We have given, you cannot take away. He makes them act as he wants. If the Sultan’s son behaves in an unruly manner, nobody can interfere. He is the son of the Sultan. Everybody says, He is the Sultan’s son, we won’t get mixed up in this. Being the Sultan’s son is one thing, but to be the servant of the Lord of Glory is another.

Look into the mirror. You should see the Light on your face. If you are not blind, you must see it. Allah, Subhānahu wa Ta‘āla has given Light to every human being. Ya Rabbi. Do not leave us without Light, O Lord. For the sake of this holy month, O my Lord. Send us, O my Lord, a Sultan who will bring down shaytan’s number to zero, so that we might walk in Your way. O my Lord, increase our love and longing, so that we might know what we must do. Nowadays mankind does not know what it must do. People think that they are in this world in order to kill each other. My throne is higher than yours, yes, or my country is bigger than yours, or it should be larger. These are the worthless aims they are pursuing. Whereas compared with the Divine blessings, which Allah Dhu l-Jalal has bestowed upon us, what is this world? It is rubbish.

O our Lord, our Lord who makes us speak. Ey Shah-i Mardan. Come to us, O Lion of lions. Send us one of your pure descendants to teach and to train us, so that mankind might be disciplined and trained. Otherwise, He(swt) says, I will make them fall upon each other and attack each other. If man does not realize the potential of mankind, I will destroy the dominion of man; I will let it be destroyed, He says from on high. Man must know what the human being is worth. What is the value of Man? When man does not realize what it is to be human, he falls down to below the level of four-footed beasts. Whereas Allah, Jalla Jalāluhu, granted us Divine gifts and glories, you go ahead and slaughter men, you beat and destroy them. For the possession of land you cause pandemonium to break loose. You have no humanity, if we may say so. Therefore, the world has lost all its adab; they crush one another. Adab has been lifted from us and calamity has landed instead. May Allah keep this far from us.

Let us say: Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. The throne of the great prophet-king Sulayman had the noble Basmala written upon it. A throne of gold. You did not see this, Mehmet, there was this ‘Ayn ul-Fija, far away, but then you were not yet born, in Sham. Water gushed forth from there, Shaykh Mehmet Effendi, for a distance from here to the upper mosque, such water sprang from there. The people of Sham used to say, this spring, the water springing forth from here, is the water of the Queen of Sheba. Allahu Akbar. The Queen of Sheba, the Prophet Sulayman asked, Who is this? They said, it is she, the Queen of Sheba. Water flowed from below her. You have not seen this, Shaykh Mehmet Effendi. From here as far as the upper mosque, water gushed out, like this. Now they have shut that off as well. Allahu Akbar ‘ala man takabbara wa tajabbar..

The arrogant tyrants have it coming. Those who do not know the value of man to whom Allah has given greatness, who do wrong and oppress men, they will be punished. In this world they will meet their punishment, and in the hereafter their place will be in the fires of Jahim. Aman ya Rabbi. Be mindful of justice. Come, O Shah-i Mardan. Kun adilan, wa la takun zaliman. Be just, do not be unjust. I am not an unjust oppressor, says Allah Almighty. I have restrained Myself from injustice. fa la tazalamu – so do not, you, act unjustly. This news, has the Muslim world not heard it? Has it not heard of this? I am not a tyrant. Injustice does not please Me, says Allah Almighty. I will speak up for the rights of the oppressed. I will crush, I will crush the tyrants, He says. Allah Almighty’s order from above. This is Shah-i Mardan’s address. I will crush them, He says, I will leave none of the oppressors. I will not leave innocent victims to cry. I will exact My revenge on the tyrants, I will crush them.

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar innahu min Sulaymana wa innahu Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. (27:30) Speak this and rub it over yourself seven times, Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim, and all your pains will be gone. No grief or anxiety will remain. No want or neediness will remain, O my Lord. Give us strength, we are so weak. We haven’t even the strength of an ant. The ant, when it warned its fellow ants – qalat namlatun, Shaykh Mehmet Effendi. ya ayyuha n-namlu udkhulū masākinakum (27.18) O you ants, said the leader of the ants, enter your dwellings! This is an order, do not come out! Do not come out! la-yahtimannakum Sulaymānu wa junūduhu. (27:18) So that the armies of the prophet Suleyman will not crush you. Go into your nests. You are not ordered to come out into the streets. The order is for you to stay at home, to remain in your houses. In times of fitna, do not go out.

When we were very young, Haji Mehmet, I was very young then. There was a preacher, an old preacher who spoke very nicely. “I look forward to the afterlife”, Allah, Allah, he used to say that. He would say: You must not stick your head out of your house. Whoever sticks out his head and then wants to pull it back in, horns will have grown on his head, he said. He can’t get it back into the house. Do not leave your house. Allahu Akbar. O you women, wa qarna fi buyūtikunna. (33:33) What kind of Muslims are you? You fill the streets. Have you no shame? No chastity, no good name? Do you have no honour? No virtue, no chastity? Where do you stand?

O Shah-i Mardan, the world will collapse from your majesty. We will show you, he says, our dignity will show you. They think it is easy to live as a Muslim. We will destroy the Muslims, with guns and cannons. You will see how you yourselves will be destroyed by cannons and guns! May Allah make us of the junūdullah, the Lord’s armies, my son. Let us be among the fighters of Allah. O our Lord, we are at Your service, we should say. To serve the dunya is worth nothing at all. It is rubbish. innahu min Sulaymana wa innahu Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim (27:30) Vroom, it fell down, the palace of Balqis.

So there was this spring, at Fija, Shaykh Mehmet Effendi, it flowed over a stretch of about 100m, water welling up from below like this. There was a building of old stone there too. The people of Sham used to say, This water which springs from below Bilqis’ throne gives Sham its blessed abundance. No other place is as blessed as Sham, Shaykh Mehmet Effendi. innahu min Sulaymana wa innahu Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. (27:30) There are forty holy saints there, Shaykh Mehmet Effendi. If one of them were to let out a shout, Sham in its entirety would collapse. What is this rubbish of theirs?

Come, O Shah-i Mardan, let us be revived in faith, may the blessing of this holy month descend on us. Show them what lies hidden within Islam! What the Muslims have in store – let us see and know it. Let us live within Islam. Let us live as servants of our Lord. Let us have no other worry than that. O our Lord, all we care for is to be Your servants. It does not matter if our house, our land, is burnt or destroyed. The only important thing is that they do not destroy the faith in our hearts. That they cannot destroy. This is what Grandshaykh told me: Sham will be destroyed, it will be destroyed. However, in one night all the rubble will be taken away and thrown in the sea. On the second night, instead of the Sham they destroyed, a new, identical Sham will be built up by troops of Jinn. Long may he live, kiss your master’s hand. Kiss your master’s hand.

I wish for the blessed Sham. It will be the same as before, a new one will be built, he says. Thanks be to Allah, what a blessing to give thanks. Anta l-Qawiy, Anta l-Qadiru l-Muqtadir, ya Rabbi. la taqnatu min rahmati-llah. Those tyrants will all go away. That water will be seen again, Shaykh Mehmet Effendi. What sweet water, once I saw it, below some old stone buildings. In the old days the water gushed up from underneath them. From here maybe for 50 metres the water bubbled up from below. The people of Sham said that this water comes from underneath the royal palace of Bilqis. Yes, indeed, it comes to Sham and makes it so blessed and fruitful. Such a blessed place is the much-honoured Sham.

Ah, Sham-i sharif, aah, Sham-i sharif. Because of our injustice this punishment has come upon it. They followed the latest fashion, the latest fashion. The ladies of Sham – we will make the girls into soldiers, so they made soldiers of them. They left no religion, no faith, no chastity. But vengeance will overcome all of them. I will not let them be, speaks the Lord Almighty Allah, Allah. Allah Allah Allah. Subhansın, ya Rabbi. Sultansın. He will let them suffer the same and even more than that. Not one of the cruel and unjust ones will be left in Sham. May Allah save us from being cruel and unjust.

al-Fatiha.

What a sense of ease I am feeling, Shaykh Mehmet Effendi. He also loves Sham more than any other place, my son loves it; my other son also, may Allah protect him and give him life. Both of them are of the generals of Sham, I am informed. They are viziers to the rest, as well as generals. They belong to those who support Sham, they bear great weight. Kiss his hand. Ruqiya resembles him a lot. She is severe. This one, and that one, too. Bahauddin is not like that. Bahauddin and Naziha, they are not so much like that. Especially Bahauddin, not at all. But this one has that quality of wrath, Shaykh Mehmet Effendi. And in that one also.

O my God, let us see those good days. Allah Almighty has said, I will take My revenge on the tyrants He will send it, He will cleanse that place. Who wishes for the old Sham, the old Sham will be rebuilt in one night. In one night all the concrete will be dumped in the sea. Would that I could see it in those days, jāmi‘u l-Mahdi, maqamu ‘Isa. That place has so much blessing. I wish they would lay me to rest there by the feet of my Shaykh..

al-Fatiha.

Where Is Our Grave?

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi (QS), 8th July, 2013. Ad-dinu nasiha. Religion is advice. It is a ghanimah/spoils for Man.

Tabarruj ul Jahiliyeti (Self-Display in Jahiliya al-Akhira)

1982-00-00_ar_Zuhur_SN_a

We have reached the most difficult period of time. Some things came to me, so I may speak about them. They are like this. And we are living in the most difficult times for Islam. But Allah Almighty wants us to renew our oath with Him (SubhanaHu wa Ta’ala). With Him (SubhanaHu wa Ta’ala) means with His Beloved (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam). Until they renew their oath with Rasulullah, there is no hope for them. This is the first point for the Muslim world to be aware of & to apply. They must declare that “we are from the nation of the Beloved, and not Syrian, Lebanese, Iraqi Palestinian, Egyptian.” Our honour is that we are part of the ummat of the Beloved (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam) of Allah (SubhanaHu wa Ta’ala). Till they recognize this there is no way out for them.

Allah (swt) says “and do not display yourselves like in the former times of ignorance” (33:33) This indicates that it is a passed period of time the first period of ignorance, but they will be under another period of ignorance. Wa La Tabarraju/and do not display yourselves, has a deep meaning. “Tabarruja Al-Jahiliyati Al-Ula”(33:33) Subahana Allah. Allah (swt) through His Beloved (saws) said that it is not appropriate to show off whether they are Egyptians, Saudis, Iraqi, Libyan. It is refused. That first period of ignorance every person was proud of themselves and their connections. The highest level of display of pride is to say “I am from the nation of the Beloved (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam)” Ya Rasulullah! Listen & take wisdom if you do, it will benefit you. There is no one who listens. There is no one left to listen to his words & orders. And many events took place. Subhana Allah!

Then after the first period of ignorance, it means that a second period of ignorance will come, and this is where we are now. It will be taken away. This second period of ignorance will also be taken away with a very strong power, from the Power of Prophethood Sahib Al Zaman al-Mahdi (as) Khalifa of Allah (swt) on the face of the earth. If he kicked this world with his foot it would go out of its orbit. That’s how great it is. Everything has an appointed time. They have been given a chance.

The most evil thing worshipped is the desire of the ego. People have followed their ego, “if you see people following their egos and obeying it and every person only likes his own opinion, keep yourself.” (Hadith) Subhana Allah. These are things that came to my heart by inspiration, or other means. It indicates the spread of corruption in the world. Allahu Akbar! But this situation has to end, because of the good tidings the Prophet (swas) gave. When he was asked “who will be in charge after you O Rasulullah?” he (saws) said “The Khalifas, Al Rashidin, Al Murshidin.” “And after them O Rasulullah?” “Princes, Amir Al Mu’minin.” “Then who will take care of the Ummah?” “The Kings will rule it, these ones who place above their heads the Holy Quran and they glorify the sunnah of Rasulullah and the book of Allah (awj), these are the Kings.” He is not a King, the one who is not master of himself. Astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah! “And after the Kings, it will be the last hour?” “After the kings, will come tyrants.” The time of tyrants, we are in it now. And it cannot be described what happened among the ummah from the injustice & oppression. “Wa Ahsinu Inna Allaha Yuhibbu Al-Muhsinina” (2:195) They closed, they blocked.

Al-Mustafa (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam)

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi (qs), Sohbat of the 2nd of February, 2014.

Sultan ul-Awliya

As-salamu Alaykum, O those attending, O Yaran/lovers of Shah Mardan, O those who are following the way of Allah’s lions, O those who are lions, marhaba/welcome to you. Welcome to us. Don’t be like a lame cat, be like a lion. Madad ya RijalAllah. Madad ay gazanfar. Madad (asking support) O Shah Mardan. How nice you are, how nice is your association. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa liLlahi l-hamd. Our honor is with saying Takbir (Allahu Akbar). Sheikh Mehmed Effendi.

Our Lord Almighty Haqq, Subhanahu wa Ta’ala, has no bounds or limits with His grace and generosity. Our Lord is the Lord of Glory. One world, Sheikh Mehmed Effendi my son, one world doesn’t have the value of one little grain. Come to the valuable thing. Let’s say – Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Basmala Sharifa dresses you with magnificence. It dresses the universe with magnificence. What can we do? We will take according to our own capacity. Ask. Ask for the dress of magnificence. May they dress us as well. We are servants. What is our desire? Our desire is the satisfaction & pleasure of our Lord Almighty. May He be pleased & satisfied with us.

As-salamu alaykum O attendees. O Yaran Shah Mardan. Be beautiful, be nice. Don’t be ugly. Allah loves the beautiful. Beauty is the right that belongs to Allah Almighty Allah Almighty is Beautiful. He created beautifully. Ask for beauty. Beauty means kamal/perfection. Perfect ones are beautiful. Ugly ones are imperfect/ deficient. They are useless. Search for beauty, seek beauty. O our Lord, You created us beautiful. Let’s protect our beauty. That is our duty – to be able to protect the beauty that was given to us; to not become ugly. All prophets, alayhum as-salam, all of them taught – “O man, don’t be ugly because the One who created you, He created you beautiful.” That is why you must protect your beauty. Safeguard your beauty everywhere and from everything. Make an effort to increase your beauty. Beauty is an attribute that the Lord of Glory loves. He dressed that (beauty) on Prophet Adam. Try not to waste it.

Dastur/asking permission O Shah Mardan. Let’s protect our beauty. Who is ugly? Satan is ugly. Beautiful is the one who is wearing the light of the Lord Almighty. Satan was jealous of that. Satan said, “that beauty should be for me, not Adam.” Astaghfirullah, Astaghfirullah, Astaghfirullah. The whole fight started from that. Satan was jealous of the Prophet Adam. “That beauty should be for me”. O our Lord, You know best. O our Lord, grant us from the beauty that You granted Your Beloved Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam). We don’t want to be ugly. O our Lord, O our Lord. Allah Allah. What is valuable in dunya (this world), Sheikh Mehmed? It is beauty. No one wants to be ugly. They want to be beautiful. All creation desires beauty. From whom is that beauty? Allah Almighty granted it to His Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam). Safeguard that beauty. That beauty, that divine beauty, is the dress given to us that grants us honor and is the means by which we will stand in the Presence. He dressed us with that beauty and accepted us in the Presence.

Satan said – “It should be for me.” A voice from above, from the Throne said – “you are not worthy. You are not worthy.” Beauty is a Divine Grant from our Lord. The Lord of Glory does not accept ugly ones. He created man, He created him beautiful. Protect your beauty and protect the beauty of others too. Allahu Akbar wa liLlahi l-hamd. Allah Almighty is Beautiful. He created His Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam) beautiful. Run after that beauty. Don’t be ugly. Eat and drink, but don’t let that make you ugly because eating and drinking makes people ugly and greedy and removes their honor. The dress of beauty of the Lord of Glory, the dress from the Throne was given to Adam. He was beautiful.

Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa liLlahi l-hamd. Say Takbir. Say Takbir everywhere, Sheikh Mehmed Effendi. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa liLlahi l-hamd. If you see an ant, say Takbir. He gave the ant a beauty. He created the ant with a beauty that those who see it might say – Allahu Akbar, Subhan Allah. The ant was also given a beauty from the Lord of Glory. That beauty came from the Presence. Protect that beauty, my son. Let’s protect that beauty. Allahu Akbar. Azamati Hudara.

Allah Almighty gave greatness to His Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam). The greatest one among creation is our Master. Our Master is the blessed one who carries the appearance of the Owner of the Throne. He carries the beauty of the Owner of the Throne. That is why he became ‘Mustafa’. Is it understood, Sheikh Mehmed Effendi? Mustafa. “…’Ala Al-‘Arshi Astawa” (20:5) Which throne? Which one is the throne? He rose above it (the throne). No one knows what it is. Look at the value and importance of man. Man is the creation that has been dressed with the light of the Owner of the Throne. Ya Rabbi, may they increase our strength. It is not our place to ask You directly. However, You taught Your Beloved Habib – Allamal-insana ma lam ya’lam(96:5) (He taught man what he didn’t know) Which man? Man is the mirror of the magnificence of Allah Almighty, Mehmed Effendi. Man carries the appearance of the magnificence of Allah Almighty Jalla wa A’la. Azamati Hudar. Allahu Akbar.

Glorify and you will be glorified. If you don’t glorify, you have no value. Glorify and be honored. Fatiha.

Beauty is a grant from Allah Almighty. He granted to His Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam). Beauty is with His Habib, it comes from him. Ask to be beautiful. Run away from being ugly. Ugliness is the characteristic of satan, Sheikh Mehmed Effendi. May Allah open your heart. May He strengthen your light. May He give us the strength to destroy the evil of satan. Fatiha.

Satan is ugly. Why did it become ugly? Why did it become satan? Because it was ugly. If it was beautiful, it wouldn’t be satan. Beautiful ones have Divine Beauty. Satan doesn’t have that, it was taken away. May Allah teach us. May Allah explain to us. Allah Almighty’s Beloved Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam) is teaching us. O Yaran Shah Mardan, teach us. May we find our strength and power and glorify our Lord. Let’s say – Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar wa liLlahi l-hamd. Let’s say Takbir for our Mawla, Owner of heavens and earth. Fatiha.

May Allah accept your worship, Sheikh Mehmed Effendi. Recite for me. Recite, my son. Pray for me. May Allah increase your physical and spiritual strength so you may destroy the fortress of satan. So you may ruin satan’s traps. May the field open for believers, for the beautiful nation of the Habib (sallAllahu alayhi wasalam). Bi hurmatil-Fatiha.

This is Mehmed Effendi. Be in safety. May you be a dragon. You will be like a dragon. You will destroy their kufur/disbelief with Allah’s permission.

Fatiha. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa liLlahi l-hamd.

Tonight was Mawlid night, like no other in the world. May it be holy for the people of Muhammad (sallAllahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sallam). May Allah let us reach his intercession. May no worries remain on people. May shaitan and those who follow shaitan be defeated. May calamities stop. May mercies come down on the people of Muhammad (sallAllahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sallam). May relief come. May those who who want to destroy the people of Muhammad (sallAllahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sallam) be destroyed themselves. Bi hurmati hadhihi laylat-ul Mubarak. Bi hurmati Fatiha.

I am relieved. I was upset in the beginning but now am relieved. For the holy birth-night of our Master (sallAllahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sallam) doing as we are doing a thousand times, a hundred thousand times, is not enough. Grant us compassion and intercession, O most honored and distinguished one.

May Sham be opened as well. May the enemies of Islam disappear. Fatiha for the honor of the holy night.

A representative came. Keep it above, don’t put down.

Allahumma Salli ala Muhammadin wa ala ‘aly Muhammadin wa Sallim

The Master of the Universe (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) represents the help of our Lord.

Jannah on earth

BismillahirRahmanirRahim

Asta’idhu billah, “wa khuliqal insanu da’ifan”(4:28) SubhanAllah. The nature of a person is weak. What can we do? We can’t do anything. We are in need of Divine help. We are in need of the help of our Lord. The Master of the Universe (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) represents the help of our Lord. Respect him. Don’t fear. Don’t respect other than him. They will ruin you. Respect our Master, alaihi s-salatu wa s-salam.

It will open. We will open in this holy month. Master of the Universe, I can’t do anything. May Allah forgive me. May He forgive you too. Let’s say Hu, Hu. Fatiha.

You can’t describe the oceans of oceans with a dot. We can give as much as is given. We can understand as much as we can. We can teach as much as we can teach. We can learn as much as we are able. And we leave what we can’t learn.

O our Rich Padishah, our Lord, our Lord, we love You. We don’t want weakness, we don’t want to be weak. I want to be strong. We don’t want to be like helpless animals on Your way. What we want is… Who is at the door of Rabb-ul Izzet cannot be helpless, cannot be mean; he is full of the bliss of love.

O my Lord, tawba ya Rabbi, tawba ya Rabbi, tawba astaghfirullah. Fatiha. He is Allah. We can’t compete. Take these away.
