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.

Sheikh Abdullah, The Right Address

In this strong sohbat Sheikh Bahauddin questions the correctness of those who say they are inheritors of Sheikh Abdullah. He reiterates the fact that Sheikh Nazim was Sheikh Abdullah’s only murid and only inheritor and that he in turn named Sheikh Mehmet as his inheritor. (Source: Saltanat.org)

Sheikh Bahauddin Adil Al-Haqqani, sohbat – 5th October, 2014, Lefke – Cyprus

Sheikh Bahauddin Adil Al-Haqqani

Opera! We are not opera people. But if we want we can do opera. This is important, what you can do. In this life, it is important what you can do. Alhamdulillah Allah Almighty He gives His servants so many options. He can hunt, he can sing, he can laugh, he can cry. He can be sad, he can be angry, he can be calm, he can sleep. And he can dance, he can sing, he can.. He has talents, he can be a poet, he can be wiseman, he can be ignorant man, he can be everything. That means he has full options. Allah Almighty, He gave everything for His servants. No servant can say, “I am not having this, or I am not having that.” They say, the genius brain uses only 4% or 3.5% in general from the whole brain. So what you think the rest is doing? It has been created for nothing? It has been put there for nothing? No, must have a reason. When the servant says “Ya Rabbi, You didn’t make me to do this, this, this.” “My servant, it is in your brain, and it is ready for use, but you didn’t know how to use it.” It is not Allah Almighty’s fault, it is your fault! But Allah Almighty doesn’t give the key, this is something else.

Now, Subhan Allah from where to where Mawlana Shaykh is sending. I am surprised, I am surprised also. We don’t have spiritual contact with the Awliya’, that’s wrong. If you claim that you have spiritual contact with Awliya, this is wrong. Because you have to look for yourself first. Say, do I have this level to be -I’m talking dunya wise- in Minister office to talk to him. I am not saying, Minister of the super power of the world, America. Not the super power of the world, Russia. No. Or not the super power of any China. No! I am saying I want to be with the Minister of small country as Cyprus. Very small, tiny country. If I am very lucky and I am chasing too much I will have an appointment in maybe, somebody like me, it will take him 2 days. Somebody, I’m not saying so high, but below me, will take him 1 week. And it is going like this. Some people will never get it. They will get it when it’s election time because that Minister he needs a vote so he goes for everybody, he can be with everybody.

This is the other face of our realistic world. But for Awliya they don’t need a vote for them. They don’t need to praise them and they don’t need to tell them “you are this, and this Maqam and this.” No they don’t need this. Because Allah Almighty He is the one giving to them. This is the difference between our world and their world. So when I say, I am in the spiritual contact with my Shaykh and I fully recover what I am talking, this should be wrong. We have to understand right and wrong. Because everything has 2 sides, one is wrong and one is right. If you understand wrong, you can continue in wrong way going all the way. Because your understanding already clicked in the wrong side. But if you understand right you click in the right side and you continue in the right side. This is how it works. It is so simple, you don’t have to make this mathematic formula and how to do it and which kind plus, minus, divide this. No need. It is either you click in the wrong or you click in the right. This is how simple it is.

Now, the spiritual things that your Shaykh that you already connecting to him, he keeps sending his spiritual ways, never stop. These spiritual ways is going on, on, on. But you are the one saying “Ya Sayyidi I am ready to take this spiritual way from you.” Why you are believing in mobile phones and not believing in Awliya? No, if you go 50 years back we see the mobile phone in American movies, in the car. I remember this, taking..talking and “wow what a technology” they say. “What a huge thing, like something impossible.” Maybe it was fake in those day, or maybe it was right, I am not sure. But it was the idea to say “look guys we are going there.” And also it is important to understand where you are going, because to know where you are going also is very important.

I am in London. I don’t know where to go, I am in London. So what? But if you say I am in London I am going for this address, you can go. This is the exact thing that we have to take. It is not the things that, to imagine that you are there and then you don’t know the address. Al- Hamdulillah Mawlana Shaykh when he left he said to continue taking my spiritual wave – it will be from Shaykh Mehmet, from Shaykh Muhammad. Nobody else! Nobody else. I can say this very clear, nobody else. Don’t think about it! This is not belonging to you, don’t cry for it, it is not belonging to you. It is for him. Who appoint him? He (Mawlana Shaykh Nazim) appoint him. Did he appoint him personally? Yes he appointed him personally.

Is he the one that needs to approve his appointing? This is another question. Big question. Who I am to ask Mawlana Shaykh “can you approve this one, the one you appointed Ya Sayyidi?” What a bad manner! What bad manners! Cannot be more than this worse manner. Cannot be! It is the worse of the worse. As asking “are you sure you appoint this gentleman, are you sure? And appointing me. Why appoint me? I am better.” Say, “No you are not better, he is better and I appoint him.” You cannot question the order of the Sultan. You cannot tell the Sultan “your Majesty, your decision is wrong.” Never happened in history. Never happened in history to request or to investigate the Sultan’s order. This is the top level. This is everybody is responsible for the top level. If you do a mistake or if you try you are responsible for top level. But the top level he cannot make mistakes in this way. Because he has another top level above him and telling him “O beloved Shaykh Nazim, O Sultan ul Awliya’ we are saying to do this, this, this.”

Mawlana Shaykh with all his majesty, he was sitting and he says “I am waiting order to come to me and then I make it happen.” This is Mawlana Shaykh. If you understand right, you can go in the right direction. But if you go for the wrong, you click there, you think that you are going in the right. It doesn’t matter This is up to you. I like to go in history of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim and Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah. It is so important point about Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah personality because all of us, we don’t know Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah. None of us, and the people they know, they know. Now, who is Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah? It’s a big question. He is Sultan ul Awliya’ and he is number 39 of the golden chain. This is known. And who is number 40 of the golden chain? It is Mawlana Shaykh Nazim. Mawlana Shaykh Nazim how he take this ocean from the chest of Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah and put it in his chest. This is an ocean.

Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah he was personally with Mawlana Shaykh Nazim in Khalwa/seclusion. Nobody else. Nobody, except Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah he was making khalwa on his own when he was young through Mawlana S. Sharafuddin and then, he make khalwa with Mawlana Shaykh Nazim, only. Nobody else. Nobody was able to stand up (carry) the manifestation that Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah he was getting and nobody can be in his presence specially in the seclusion. This must be understood. It is easy to go out and say “I was with Mawlana..” I was with Mawlana S.Abdullah. Maybe I’m better than you when I was with Mawlana S.Abdullah. You never know. Maybe Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah he was loving me more than you, because I was pure and you are not. I was innocent, but you were grown up. Maybe you were not innocent as me. This is also a question matter. But, this is not the subject.

The subject is, Mawlana S. Abdullah did he make khalwa with you? Did he put you in seclusion with him, in the same room? Can you say this? No. When Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah he was out of operation he make the last seclusion with Mawlana Shaykh in Beirut, in my sister’s room. Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah and Mawlana Shaykh Nazim. 24hrs the door was not open. Nobody can go in. What is this? 24hrs the Shaykh with his successor, with his beloved one. This is Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah. This is the 3rd seclusion that they’ve been alone, nobody, nobody (else). This is how we have to understand, the right and the wrong.

There is history from Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah. He passed away 1973 and until 2014 who was the ruling Shaykh? How many years? 40. 41 year! 41 year. It’s a big space. We are away from Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah, 41 years. I am away from Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah 41 year. I was 10 when he passed away. If, I am saying for the murids. They were not seeing Mawlana S. Abdullah you cannot jump these 41 years and get your benefit from Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah. Actually Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah he didn’t give you the benefit, he gave it to Mawlana Shaykh Nazim. So clearly he gave it to Mawlana S. Nazim. Mawlana S. Nazim is the one. He is the one making everything one. This must be understood. Because if you don’t understand this it is wrong. You are in the wrong way.

You have to understand who is your Shaykh. Your Shaykh is not Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah. He is not your Shaykh. He is Mawlana Shaykh Nazim’s Shaykh. We don’t have any connection with him. He is, Shaykh of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim. Because we cannot carry Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah. I am not saying, disrespect. No, I’m not saying disrespect. Don’t misunderstand. There is…minimize our size to get our real size. Our mistake is when we put a beard and we wear Naqshbandi, and wear turbans, we think that we are flying. No, we are not flying. You have to step in the ground you have to understand who you are. Because one of the biggest thing that ego love to put the turban and the beard and say “I am now becoming something.” Don’t forget this one.

Don’t think the ego takes you for nightclub or for gambling or for women or doesn’t make you to pray. No, this is.. this is nothing. The ego is playing in bigger place. The ego never plays in small place. Small place is gambling women, nightclubs. All this for ego it is it is nothing. It doesn’t care, ego doesn’t have this calculation at all. This is you have to understand how to treat your ego. When you put your turban, and you make the turban bigger and bigger then you leave your beard bigger, and bigger… then the ego says yes “now you are completed!” Yes. This is reality, this is reality. You have to wake up! This you have to wake up! You cannot carry this heavy burden. It is heavy burden.

Now I am not saying that I will be something. I am not saying I will be big Awliya’ I am talking just I am talking coffee talk. Why you say it’s coffee talk? Yes it is coffee talk, because there is no ibdi’a, there is no claim. There is no claim. If anybody will be happy here. If nobody will be happy also, that’s no… Now we have to know that when Shaykh Sharafuddin (qas) the Shaykh of Grand Shaykh Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah. He was saying “Abdullah Effendi you are my murid you are my successor. But the feet that you put in your maqam I cannot see, they’re so high. “So imagine the 38 of the Golden Chain says this to S. Abdullah and we are saying and Mawlana S. Abdullah is our Shaykh. No it is not your Shaykh! You are not having this specific to be his murid. You have to understand this.

Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah he was extremely Jalali. Jalali you know what it means Jalali, extremely disciplined. Nobody can play like we play today. No way! He was not joking, and then he said “Nazim Effendi I am leaving you to be Jamali.” That’s why we are lucky to be with Mawlana S. Nazim because he was all the time showing us the beauty face of tariqa. The beauty face that he tolerated in all the fields. Then we are feeling the beauty of Tariqa. So many people know, all the Tariqas if you go first thing they tell you “you have to be disciplined. You have to be in this shape, you have to be like this, like this.” Except Mawlana Shaykh Nazim. He said “you come in it’s ok. After that we sort the problem. No problem. We can be ok with you, just you come. Enter. I am not asking you to be in this form, or be in this shape or…you come, you come.” He is like the father for everybody saying, “ok my children some of them naughty, some of them good. But it’s ok they are my children. You just come. After that we solve the problem.” This is how Mawlana Shaykh was treating us.

But Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah, no way! No way! I was having small memories with him. One day I was going to my aunt’s house. And my school was morning, my sister’s school was in the afternoon. My mother she said “wait for your sister to finish her school and take her with you.” And I say, Uh! Yeah and I left her and I went to my aunty. The second day when I come back this come to the ear of Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah. I was 8 years old. When it came to the ear of Shaykh Abdullah he said “bring him to me!” Yes! I was going to kiss his hand and I find Shaykh Mustafa, may Allah bless him, running after me. “Grand Shaykh he wants you.” What!! I ran! I ran! And then he know he catch me and he bring me to Grand Shaykh. And Grand Shaykh he was giving me such a hard lesson. I was talking and I was crying all night.

And then I remember I must care about everything. I must be careful about everything. It is not your way to say “I am free. Ok my sister she can be at home I can be alone. No problem.” No, this is how Mawlana Shaykh he was treated every small things and big things. To make you understand. This is how he was, Jalali and sharp. Now, if you tell me somebody did this…”Ok no problem. Maybe next time he will take his sister.” But Mawlana Shaykh would never say like this He make it perfect. So don’t go there. If you go there you will burn. Don’t go there be in the mercy side, my advice – to be with Mawlana S. Nazim, not to be with Mawlana S. Abdullah. I am not advising. Personally I would never go. Because when I was 8 years old I take it! I take it and I am still remembering. Now I am over 50 and I am still remembering and will never forget. Until I die I will never forget this.

It is Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah it is not for us, it is for Mawlana Shaykh Nazim. And this must be known. Today we are talking history just to lighten our future. This I am saying for all the murids that they think they are clever. And they think they can do something and they play with words and make it word magician. And make it “O Yes! Maybe it is like this.” It is not philosophy. It is not philosophy, this is Tariqa. And Tariqa has rules and regulations. You go for banking saying “I want to put this money.” Saying, “no this money you have to prove from where it’s coming, this money has to be tax paid.” And the bank, even you bring big money, it will be bigger problem for you. You have to explain from where you get this money. You have to explain why we believe in banking systems and we are escape from it. And we don’t believe in Naqshibandi system and we are feeling very free from it. And the banking system if this happens, this, this.

But that one is for your eternal life and you are playing with your eternal life, this is my warning for me personally and then I am warning everybody that they think they are clever, they think they are genius. And they think they are on right and they think whatever they do, it is right! And they think whatever it is coming to them and if somebody tell them some advice that it is right because it is for their benefit. Mawlana Shaykh never think about his benefit. If Mawlana Shaykh think about his benefit, today he must have left billions. And Mawlana Shaykh he didn’t leave any one single cent or one single penny, or one single dollar or one single euro. Alhamdulillah he said “I am free. What Allah Almighty He give me, I distribute. What Allah Almighty He was giving to me, I give.”

Alhamdulillah we are happy to say this one and we are proud of Mawlana Shaykh by doing this. We are not asking his inheritance. We are not asking his wealth. We are asking only his blessings. And we are asking to be in his Ikhlas. And to be under his feet. Very important. To be under your Shaykh feet it is very very important. This must be clear and understandable because otherwise our loss will be very big. I keep warning, and I will keep warning until the things will be fixed. If not fixed, I will keep warning. I don’t care my duty is warning. Mawlana Shaykh if he put me here to speak I am speaking as a warner. I am nothing. If you like to listen, it’s ok. If you don’t like to listen also is ok. But my duty is to warn.

You know the traffic light it is having red orange and green. It is time, 4’o clock after midnight. Nobody in the streets, but this light will have the system…. Never fed up. I am like this light never be fed up! I will keep warning…if there are some people to listen, yes. If there are some people that are not listening, also yes. I’m doing my traffic light duty and wa min Allahi t-tawfiq. Bi hurmati l-Habib, bi hurmati l-Fatiha.

Attributes of Awliya

Sultan Sheikh Mehmet Adil al-Haqqani (Qs), sohbat – August 4, 2014.

Sultan-ShaykhMehmet

As-salamu aleykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu. A‘udhu billahi min ash-shaytani r-rajim. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Madad ya RasulAllah, madad, ya Sadatı Ashabi Rasulillah, madad, ya Mashayikhına fi t-tariqati n-Naqshibandiya, madad ya Shaykh Abdullah Faiz adDaghistani, madad ya Shaykh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani dastur. Tariqatuna as-sohba, wa l-khayru fi jam’iyya.

Man is created with the characteristic of wildness. Allah, Azza wa Jalla, sent prophets in order to teach man how to turn that characteristic into a good, useful thing. After the time of the prophets came those who followed their ways, after them came saints and scholars. They came one after one, to teach what the prophets had taught. Man should never be idle. When he is idle, he begins to do bad things. To begin, he will deny Allah or, try to suit Allah’s commands to his own whims and his own ideas, saying, “this is Allah’s wish”.

This becomes the fitna of shaytan, what his nafs and his desire are asking. Therefore, it is important to have a murshid. A murshid is a person whose wish is to do Allah’s command. These are people whom Allah appointed to show others the way, to give them guidance. Shaytan does not love these people. Shaytan does not like them, and they also do not like those that shaytan loves. They call them mushrik, or whatever. Some say mushrik, some say something else. Shaytan and his friends do not like these people. But they are people beloved to Allah and His Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam).

It is written about them: “A la inna awliya-Allahi la khawfun ‘alayhim wa la hum yahzanun”(10:36). There is no fear for those who are Friends of Allah, nor any sorrow. Allah does not cause them to be distressed, nor does He cause them to be fearful. Nothing else matters to them except to be with Allah Almighty. They fear only Allah and the Holy Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam). Besides this they fear nothing. What causes them sorrow is when people are carried away by shaytan, when they are caught by the devil.

Nothing else causes them sadness, no personal concern is distressing to these people. Not illness, nor hunger or thirst. They do not grieve about themselves. However, these days there are many who spread false teachings. This happens in every age, of course as shaytan keeps changing his appearance. If it always stayed the same, everyone would know it. But nowadays philosophy is gaining strength and disputation, and what is called theology; shaytan engages in those things and manages to destroy people’s belief.

Those are their means, therefore we warn our people that murshids are beloved servants of Allah and His Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam). From the time of the Holy Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam) to this day, they have passed on from one shaykh to the next, from one murshid to the next. What they took from that ocean they distributed it step by step to this present day. They are not the kind of people who come across a handful of water and then dry up. So, you must know their value. You must know the value of these saintly people.

Do not be cheated by those people who nowadays have no murshid. In any case, it is clear who is the true murshid, who is the false one, who is shaytan’s friend and who is Allah’s friend. May Allah not part us from this path. May Allah guide those leaving this way. Let them come to this way, insha’Allah He sorts out their minds.

We are speaking about Awliya’Allah. One of their sifat, attributes, it is said, ‘murshid’, who gives irshad. Meaning who is showing you the right way. Who is showing you the right way, these people they are servants of Allah, Allah loves them. They are coming continuously from Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam) because Allah sent Prophets and Companions and Awliya’Allah and real mashsha’ikh from Allah since the beginning, from Adam (as). And these people, what they want is only to take people to right way, to not let them go with shaytan, with satan.

These people, they are since Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam) millions, because at any time we have 124.000 Awliya’Allah. Any minute when somebody passing, again another one coming behind him. So, since Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam) there’s millions, they came and passed away. These people, who they are? How you can describe these people? Shaytan was loving them? No, shaytan was hating them and who hates these people and speaks against them are friends of shaytan, nobody else.

Billions of mu’mins and Muslims are coming through Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam) until now, maybe more than billions, they came and passed away. The old ones loving them and they were showing people the right way. For this, shaytan was hating them and his followers also hating. Allah loves them, Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam) also loves them. They are loved by Allah and by Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam). And they are not saying anything for themselves (nothing matters to them) and they are not afraid from anything and they are not sorry for anything, for themselves.

They are only afraid from Allah, and if Allah is with them, they are happy and not sorry or anxious to be hungry or ill or anything else for themselves, no. They don’t care about themselves. Only they care for ummah, Prophet’s (saws) nation, to not let them to go the wrong way, behind shaytan and his followers. This makes them sad. Other things, no, nothing for themselves.

So they are not like what they, these mushriks say, no! Because they are not even wanting anything for themselves. Only for dua, they are making dua for Muslimeen, nation of Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam). And how these people these days making bad advising and cheating people. “Who cheats us they are not from us,” said Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam). So these people, they are cheating people and you cannot take advise from books or from these people who don’t have roots. Only they come like mushroom and they will go again.

So be very careful, these days this poison is around the world. Shaytan and his followers are trying to destroy the right way of Islam. Alhamdulillah, Allah is with us. We are not afraid because He Is Malik al-Mulk! He is the Owner of this whole universe. Nothing can be done without Him. Alhamdulillah, we are happy we are with Him, not against Him, not with shaytan. And we are advising our people who are away from this road to come to find a real murshid / guide, to keep away from shaytan and his followers and to save themselves for Akhira, for eternal life.

This life it is either, whatever happens it will be only short period and after, the real life, is forever. We will be insha’Allah, happy. Insha’Allah with Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam), with Awliya’Allah, with beloved people for Allah in Jannah and with others insha’Allah.

Wa min Allahi t-Tawfiq Al Fatiha.

Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi (Qs), Sohbat of the 10th of July, 2013, Lefke, Cyprus.

Mawlana-Sultan

Marhaba O yaran Shah Mardan. Welcome to you. You came with khair, you came with barakah. There is a barakah on each servant. May the barakah on you reach us also. Allahumma qawwi dha’fi fi ridak. This is our munajat (dua) to our Lord. May He grant us power in the way of pleasing Him. What else can we ask for? Even if the whole world belonged to you, was given to you, what would be the benefit of it? May our day be good. May our work be good. May our staying in dunya be good & may our honour be high. Welcome to you, O yaran Shah Mardan. Who come through this door are welcomed, they are told “Welcome”. Welcome to you O servants of Allah. O yaran Shah Mardan, welcome to you. Welcome to you O yaran, who seek servanthood at the door of their Lord. Our day is the holy Ramadan. For the holy Ramadan it is also said, “Welcome”. What a beautiful, what an honoured month it is, that my Almighty Mawla granted us to reach. O hadirun, attending ones! We wish we could leave everything- at least leave the dunya in this holy month and perform servanthood for our Lord. How beautiful it would be.

Go ahead O Shah Mardan. How beautiful are your words. Shah Mardan, who is the lion Allah Almighty granted our Prophet (SallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) as an iftikhar / honour. Let us talk in his name. Let us not speak for ourselves. We wish everyone kept the way of Shah Mardan, we wish we kept it also. Welcome to you. Welcome to this door, welcome. May your day be pleasant, may your work be pleasant, may your hearts be in enjoyment. We wish your names be written in the book of the Master of Creation. O yaran! O holy Sultan… Allahumma alhimna rushdana. O our Lord, (may You send us) the Shah Mardan who will inspire us with the service that’s suitable for us. The Prophet of Allah (SallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam), the Prophet of the End of Times says: “Allahumma alhimna rushdana”, doesn’t he? Rushd. Rushd is such a precious jewel that doesn’t come to everyone. You should go after it. “Alhimna rushdana”. What does rushd mean? Rushd means to start with the Bismillah.

“Alhimna rushdana” O our Lord, may You make the beautiful ways You granted us come to us easily. O Yaran Shah Mardan. O Shah Mardan! That is why they run after Shah Mardan- to take rushd, to take the jewel from him. Allahumma alhimna rushdana. Rushd, to be rashid (Rightly Guided) – he wants to dress on Man the dress of the rank of kamal (perfection). When we say “Alhimna rushdana”, it is the word of the holy ones- the word of Shah Mardan, which is the jewel he received from higher up. Alhimna rushdana. MashaAllahu kan. “Ask for it” He says. What should you ask for? “We want an inspiration which dresses on us the dress of rushd, the dress of being rashid. Before, in the Ottoman State, the people who were rewarded by the Sultan would be called “Rashadadlu Pasha Hazrat” (who has rushd), out of respect for them.

Let us say, O yaran Shah Mardan, Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Be rashid- meaning a person whose every action is clean, is beautiful. “Rashadadlu” is one whose every service is beautiful, gives honour, who is the possessor of maqams. Rashadadlu is Sultan Rashad Hz for example. What does rashadadlu mean? The Sultan who is dressed with the rank of being rashid and who is appointed as the leader of the Ummah. Rashadadlu- his every work dresses men with the rank of being rashid. “What about the ones now?” “These are the qalayjilar (tinner) party”. Is there such a party? Shaikh Mehmet Effendi, the party of qalayjilar? “Of course there is. We are a party”. (Mawlana calls)”Qalayjilar, qalayjilar”. Before they would call like this in the streets -the tinners- they would take the worn pans to coat them with tin. They sometimes return them, sometimes don’t.

(Mawlana calls)”Qalayjilar…” What is the name of this party of yours? The name of our party is the “Qalayjilar (tinners) Party”. “Really? What does that “qalayjilar” mean?” They take whatever they find. Before, the Jews would go through the streets, calling, “Give me your old stuff”. They would have a big bag and they would put whatever they found in it and take. “Which party are you with?” “I am with the qalayjilar party”. “What do you do?” “I take the old things”. “You don’t take the new?” “Not new, the new things have no taste. I take the old ones”.

How does a person who is rashid become rashid? “‘Alaysa Minkum Rajulun Rashidun” (11:78) says Allah Almighty. Is it not a Holy Verse? “‘Alaysa Minkum Rajulun Rashidun”. Is there not a right-minded, clean man among you who can think? What do they do? Street vendor. What do they do? Tinner. What do they do? Coffee shop guard. What is his work? Thieving. What is his art? Shamelessness. What is this called? Democracy. This is the definition of democracy. How proud do they get, saying “democracy is coming”. Why? What is democracy? Demos means shaytan and cracy means rule, so they combined the two and when they say democracy it is the sultanate of ifrit/demons, the sultanate of shaytans. The junk that is of no use, people run after it now. Leave it and come to the jewel that came to you, and you’ll be rashid. O our Lord, may You forgive us.

Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Draw your Dhul Fiqar so that this no-mind nation comes to its senses. “Sataftariqu ‘ummati ‘ala thalatha wa sab’ina firqa. Kulluhum fi n-nari ‘ila wahida”. “Manhum ya RasulAllah?” “Ma ana alayhim idha as’habi”. Allahu Akbar, how beautiful. This is the teaching of our Prophet- the Master of the Creation (SallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam). The Master of the Creation says: “My nation will divide into 72 sects into which shaytan will rush so that all their identity will be lost. “This party, this sect, this jama’at…” Leave these and return to Allah. Ask “Who is the Owner of this Creation?” You look at the sky & it is all shining. When I was a small boy, I would look at the sky, Hj Mehmet Effendi. Being a small boy, I would say “These stars must be as big as a maltiz”. What we call maltiz is a small stove like this, which is used for making fire & it is made of earth. I would say like this with my little understanding. The stars that appear as if they are blinking, I would say “these stars must be as big as the maltiz we have at home”. Use your mind! Till where does the limit of the mind reach? What can a person know, who can’t figure out the limit of the mind?

Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Your yaran is muntazir /awaiting every moment for your instructions. Use your mind. Look at what you do! Why did Allahu Dhu-l Jalal send Prophets? If everyone’s mind was enough for him, He wouldn’t send Prophets. Everyone would go with what they thought the best. He (swt) sent a Prophet. Pay attention, O the people of kufirustan /unbelieving land. Kafaratu l-fajara, ‘ulaika humu l-kafaratu l-fajara. Who don’t use their mind, who don’t accept what descended from Heavens, are those who have no value, who are trash. People have become trash in this time. But Man has an honour.

He (swt) sent a Prophet, ‘Alayhi s-salatu wa s-salam. Allah grants a high rank to His Habib in every moment. Our Prophet, ‘alayhi s-salatu wa s-salam, would wear a mintan- he would wear a waist length jubba and he had a turban on his head. The Prophet (SallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) would roll a turban from whatever he had available. O Glorious Prophet! One person appeared in the deserts of Hijaz- a seven-year-old boy. He said “I will destroy your unbelief. I will bring the Shariat of Heavens. You will listen to me, I am the Prophet of men and jinn”. (SallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) You are that one O RasuluLlah. Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar wa Lillah’il Hamd. “I will destroy what you worship. I will declare to you the religion of Heavens. You will listen to me” he said. Who is that person? An orphan child says this in the deserts of Hijaz. “How can this be?” say the Jews and Christians. There is no one who can be more jealous than they. “Who is he?” they say. And the mushriks say “Who is he to speak as he likes about our Ka’ba of thousands of years”. Who is he?

Acknowledge him O people of the 21st century. Acknowledge him. He is such a person who said when he was a 7-year-old kid “I will destroy these idols and inform these people about their Lord. This is my mission”. SallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, Ya RasulAllah. O yaran Shah Mardan, mashaAllah. I will winnow/ sift this earth! “Who are you?” “I am nothing.” That glorious Prophet said “My nations will be 73 sects and each one will go as they like. It is not accepted. Only what we brought, what we are informed of will succeed. I will make it succeed”. How can a 7-year-old child come with this claim? Well, if the order comes from Heavens it may very well succeed.

Now the world got wild, shaytan mounted the people. Shaytan mounted them and they said “Don’t believe. Believe in democracy”. Did the Prophet say democracy? What is this? You should follow the word of that Prophet, that glorious Prophet (SallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam). The word of the 7-year-old child: “I will destroy your idols. You will turn. Fawallu Wujuhakum Shatrahu(2:150)- You will turn towards the presence of Al-Ka’ba Al-Mu’azzama”. Who is this child? “This one is a child only. How can it happen?” He said “I will do it. I will destroy your idols. I’ll change the false religion of the Jews, I’ll change the religion of false Christians too. I will bring the religion of tawheed- One Allah, Jalla Jalaluhu”. We should pay attention. Today in dunya it is just as that 7-year-old child said. He said “I will destroy- I will destroy Christianity, I will make Judaism miserable & I will put who worships idols under my feet. Illa Allah! La ilaha illa Allah!”

O people! “Hal min muddakirin” (54:40). Is there no one among you who can think? Today is the holy Ramadan. There has been an order for fasting for 1500 years- when the crescent of Ramadan appears you should fast. Amanna wa saddaqna. Ya Rabb, mashaAllah. That 7-year-old child, who was nothing in your sight, received the Holy Verses, received the Holy Quran. It is said “Shahru Ramadana lladhi ‘Unzila Fihi l-Qur’anu Hudaan Lin-Nasi Wa Bayyinatin Mina l-Huda Wa l-Furqani Faman Shahida Minkumu sh-Shahra Falyasumhu”(2:185). Is it not like this? This Holy Verse descended. O foolish people, who have become animals! Look! Look at the majesty of the Quran Azimu sh-Shan that descended on him. “Faman Shahida Minkumu sh-Shahra Falyasumhu”. This “Faman Shahida Minkumu sh-Shahra Falyasumhu”. This crescent in the sky for the Ramadan, does it say on it “the crescent for Ramadan?”. No, it doesn’t. But Allahu Dhu-l Jalal informs His Habib (SallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam), whom He created as mustasna/exceptional & whom you saw as a small child, in this Holy Quran He sent him – “Faman Shahida Minkumu sh-Shahra Falyasumhu”. You fast when this holy month arrives. “Faman Shahida Minkumu sh-Shahra Falyasumhu”.

A sabi’, a small child in the deserts of Hijaz- Allahumma salli ‘ala Sayyidina Muhammad. “You fast when this month arrives”. Is this order being carried out now? There are two billion people on earth who say “I am a Muslim”. It says “when this month comes” in the Quran Azimu sh-Shan which descended on that 7 year-old, 8 year-old, who later became the Nabi’-ul Mursal, the Sultanu l-‘Anbiya-“Faman Shahida Minkumu sh-Shahra Falyasumhu”. Does it say on it (the crescent) “for Ramadan”? It doesn’t. How come? Even if it is not written, He (swt) said in the Quran Azimu sh-Shan – “Faman Shahida Minkumu sh-Shahra Falyasumhu”. Whoever reaches the month of Ramadan may fast. Is there any other person whose word is carried out like this? Today there are 3 billion Muslims on earth. And they are all fasting, they are all running for tarawih. Appreciate this! Is the order of the Glorious Prophet- ‘alaihi afdalu s-salat wa atammu ttaslima- being carried out? Yes, it is. Because the month of Ramadan arrived, all the Muslims fast – billions of them- and they also pray the tarawih.

Allah! You are Subhan. Who don’t understand this are worse than animals. Whether you are Turk, or Kurd, or people of the West, or people of the East, or Russians, or other unbelievers, you should listen to this word and fast. Are there people who listen? Billions of them. They fast upon this order. Look at the Quran-i Karim O Turks, O Kurds, O Arabs, O Iranians! Why don’t you look at the Quran Al-Karim? What does it say? Fast when the month of Ramadan arrives-Falyasumhu. Tarawih? Pray the tarawih also. And for 1500 years the nations of the Habib have respected Ramadan Sharif with joy. They say “Ramadan Shariff has come” and pull themselves together. Who don’t acknowledge this spiritual power are animals. What is the reason for the jealousy of who are not Muslims? They say “How is this? How does this nation fast? How do they pray? Whose order is this?” It is the order of Heavens. Who declared it? That Prophet declared it – SallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam.

Come to your senses O people! If not they will beat you until you do. Come to your senses. Dress in the rank of humanity. Because the people of the 21st century threw away the rank of humanity, the dress of honour and with what did they dress instead? The attribute of wild animals. But a stick is coming on them. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. O glorious Prophet, O glorious Prophet. May You intercede & show compassion for us. May you send a Master for your nation, O glorious Prophet. May you send a Sultan who will destroy the sultanate of shaytan, O glorious Prophet! (SallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) We are in need of this, we are in need of this. We have nothing to do with the dustur. Constitution, mother law, father law, dustur – we have nothing to do with them. O Islamic World! Leave this empty talk! Our constitution is the Qur’an Azimush-Shan, Shariat-ul Ahmadiyya, Gharra-u Muhammadiyya. Focus on this. If you don’t, there is no end to the sticks you will get. Make the Muslims, who say that they are Muslims, get used to this, O scholars! You don’t succeed in Islam by making mahya in the mosques. You left Islam & say constitution. May your constitution collapse & be finished. The time is coming for all of them. He says “Let them come. The whip is ready”.

Al-hamdu Lillah, amantu biLlah wa bi ma jaa’ min ‘indiLlah. Amantu bi Rasulillah wa bi ma jaa’ min ‘indi Rasulillah. Say O believer! “We have faith in what Allah sent and in what His Prophet (SallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) declared. May You accept us in the Way of Haqq O Lord. May your honour increase and may you have no fear. We are a weak person. But despite our weakness, we will destroy unbelief. Ya Rabba l-‘Izzati wa l-‘Azamati wa l-Jabarut. May dunya collapse on whoever disrespects us- whether Turk, or Kurd, or any unbeliever. We are the Muslims who want the Shariat of Allah.

May the sphinxes of these Egyptians collapse on their heads! They can’t think of anything else. They say “Let us show you the sphinx. Let us show you the pyramids” to whoever comes. Is your religion this? O Egyptians! What is this business of yours? “Well, this is the dunya business. This business is important. This is how we make a living”. “What do you do?” “We raise camels. We make the huge Europeans, who are like camels, mount them & take their money; take them and show ‘Here, this is the pyramid'”. Ok, what is there in it? One time, Mulla Nasreddin said “It is the head of a donkey!”. He was buying and selling yarn from the spinners of yarn. He realized that it was not as heavy as other people’s, so he said “Let me try this”. What did he do? He rolled the wool, or the silk, or whatever it was, around the head of a donkey. So he rolled around and took it to the market to sell. The people who came to his stall could not lift his ball of yarn. “What is this Hoja Effendi?” “Well, of course it is yarn. Why do you ask what it is?” said Hoja Effendi.

As people continued asking, finally he said, “It is the head of a donkey!” Apparently he rolled the yarn around the head of a donkey & brought it to the market. Whoever wanted to buy it couldn’t lift it up so they asked, “What is this?” “It is yarn”. And finally when the people insisted, he said “Ok, it is the head of a donkey. Will you take it now?” The people of this time have also become like this. Democracy! No, it is the head of a donkey! And the rulers of democracy are worse than donkeys. Shariatu Gharra-u Ahmadiyya, Sultan al-Qawnayn. You don’t look to what the Master of Creation brought and you make dustur? Is making dustur suitable for you, O Arabs? You are going too far! There is the heavenly dustur of Janabu Rabbu-l Izzat. He will discipline/punish you. “Wa Sawfa Ta’lamuna” (6:67). You will come to know.

O our Lord, send us from Your clean servants one who will make us come to our senses. Go ahead O Shah Mardan, draw your Dhul Fiqar and cut the heads of these shaytans who divide the Ummah with such foolish names. There is the Divine Shariat- there is no dustur but there is the Divine Shariat. O our Lord, may You make us from who accept & follow Your honourable Law.

May the holy Ramadan be mubarak. Grant us power Ya Rabbi, dress us with majesty so that we can endure and find honour in serving You. Go ahead O Shah Mardan, your yaran are your admirers. Fatiha.

Here, just as Mulla Nasreddin rolled his yarn into the head of a donkey and tried to sell it as yarn, what is inside their democracy? There is the head of a donkey! Take the head of a donkey! Who wants democracy may take the head of donkey & may it explode on their heads. Who speaks is Shah Mardan and what is in his hand is Dhul Fiqar. He will first discipline/punish those who claim to be Muslims. Tawba Ya Rabbi, tawba AstaghfiruLlah.

Fatiha.

Laylatu-l Bara’at

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim

The following excerpts are from the sohbat ‘Laylatu-l Bara’at’ by Sultan ul-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi (Qs), 24th June, 2013, Lefke, Cyprus

1530390_10201583388170577_504018824_n

Who is Man?

Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Let us start O Shah Mardan. Your yaran are your admirers. May our day be mubarak. May our Night of Bara’at be mubarak. May our Lord accept us for His servanthood. O Yaran Shah Mardan – Allah Allah- those who keep the way of Allah’s Lion. Keep the lion’s way and you will be a Sultan. Don’t keep the way of donkeys, you will be a donkey. Hayfa, shame on those people who cannot present their service to their Lord Who made them Sultans. Hayfa, shame on them. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Your yaran are your admirers. Your knowledge is abundant, your ‘hilm'(mild-manner) is abundant. You are the representative of the one who is dressed with Sultanate from the Heavens.

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa Lillahi l-Hamd. Allahumma inni dhaifun wa qawwi dha’fi fi ridak. O our Lord, we are weak servants. There is no power in us. However Allah Almighty made Man, Sultan on earth. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Go ahead and speak, explain for us who is Man. Who is Man? This is a sohbat from Shah Mardan to us, which teaches what our path, our destination should be; what things we should do. Shah Mardan is a Sultan. Where is his knowledge from? His knowledge is from the knowledge of Rabbu l-Izzat’s Beloved Habib (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam), it is a drop from the ocean of his knowledge. O Allah! Bayyid wujuhana Ya Rabbana. (Whiten our faces with light). Let us pray.

This last night, the 15th of Sha’ban al-Mu’azzam, it was Laylatu-l Bara’at, wasn’t it? May He(SubhanaHu wa Ta’ala) dress on us the fadhilah (virtues), the barakah (blessings), the honour, the rif’at (dignity), the majesty, the uns (familiarity), the power of this Laylatu-l Bara’at. Be a man so that you can be dressed! They don’t bring a man who sweeps the streets and make him sit on the throne of the Sultan. How can that be? A person who collects trash? The children of Adam – the mumtaz (distinguished) one who is sent to earth to rule is Shah Mardan. He is the lion who is appointed to declare the honour of the children of Adam on earth. They are sent from Heavens to earth. He is appointed to discipline them, to teach them adab.

Know that a person is with whom he loves

O yaran Shah Mardan- the yaran, lovers of Shah Mardan; Al-mar’u ma’a man ahab. The person is with whom he loves. Know that a person is with whom he loves. Love, so that you can be loved. If you don’t love, people won’t love you either. You should love, you should know how to love. Who has forgotten to love someone, who doesn’t know how to love is not Man. A person who knows how to love is crowned. Allah Allah! Madad Ya Sahiba z-Zaman, Madad Ya Sahibul-Dawran, Madad Ya Shah Mardan.

Your Almighty Lord created you for His service

Allah Almighty Who is al-Khaliq (The Creator) created you for service. People should pay attention to this. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Listen, listen to what comes from Shah Mardan. Last night was the 15th day of Sha’ban al-Mu’azzam. It is a mu’azzam (great) month, and it is a mu’azzam night. Last night was the night when a Nur and surur (joy) which is impossible to describe descends from the Heavens and is dressed on the Children of Adam. Say “Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar” and don’t fear. Don’t scream, don’t scream and go out in the streets. Go ahead O Shah Mardan, may you describe us. Your listeners, your yaran, who love you, are all listening. How should you be? What should you be living for? How did you come into existence? For what do you exist? Is there anyone who asks this? Is there anyone who asks “For what reason are we in this dunya?”. There is no one who asks because there is no one who recites the Bismillah. Say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim and such doors open for you. But what they teach (in schools) is – there are lions in Africa, there are tigers in India. There is shaytan in China. There is a foolish one in Russia. And for the others, each one has a mentality and a quality.

But the quality which is really asked from man is, your Almighty Lord created you for service. He(SubhanaHu wa Ta’ala) is the Sultan of Sultans and He (swt) invited you to His service. Invitation meaning, Accept My service. Don’t say “May I be a Bey, may I be a Pasha, may I be a King”. What are you on this earth? Why do you exist on this earth? You should know this. He (swt) did not create you to be a Bey, to be a Pasha, to be an emperor in dunya, but created you for service, the Khaliqu-l Yazdan. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. He says, our Lord Who created us and sent us down from Heavens to earth created us for service. But you serve donkeys! It has no value! Can a person who serves the Sultan be the same as who serves donkeys? You are attracted to the dirty dunya. You say “I want the dirty dunya”. You say “I am a servant to dirty dunya”. What can you gain from it?

Don’t sleep! Open your eyes. Here, this night is Laylatu-l Bara’at. Laylatu-l Bara’at. O Yaran Shah Mardan. O Shah Mardan, inform us. Tell us what a night this night is. Tell us about the power of Laylatu-l Bara’at. Allahu Dhu l-Jalal informed our Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam) of its power and majesty and he (sas) informed Shah Mardan. Go ahead Shah Mardan, describe for us how the service of Allah should be. You open your door and run to your business. You open your door and run to your farm. You open your door and run to your office. What is this? What a burden is this you have, that you run outside as soon as you open your eyes, even before washing your face. You say “I am going to work”. What is your work? “I have a grocery shop”, or “I am a green grocer”, or “I am a worker in the government office” or “I am the government”. Where is the dhawk (pleasure), the shawk (enthusiasm) in this? There is nothing.

Do you say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim when you open your door? Do you say the Name of Who created you? Know this O man, know your honour. Know your honour. What will they do with you if you don’t know? If man doesn’t know about his honour – before there were water-wheel donkeys for the wells. Do you know of them? The water-wheel donkeys. At that time there were no pumps, motors like now. They would dig a well and pull up the water from it. It keeps turning and turning around, to pull up the water. They cover the eyes of that animal also and say “let it turn around”. It keeps going around. Then? Then water comes up. O man, are you a water-wheel donkey? Did Allahu Dhu l-Jalal, Who is the Sahibu-l Mutlaq (Absolute Owner) create you as a water-wheel donkey? O shameless ones! For this they are beaten with whips, with sticks more and more.

O Man! What all the 124 000 Prophets said, “Your Lord created you for His service”. He (SubhanaHu wa Ta’ala) created you for His service, not to be water-wheel donkeys. So now the people of this time, the little men, the animals in the shape of men, don’t understand that our honour and service is in service to the Creator. Our Lord did not make us water-wheel donkeys – The animals whose eyes are covered and turn the wheel around from morning till evening, to pull up a handful of water. Why do you degrade yourself to this level? O people! O Turk, O Kurd, O Alawi, O Shi’a, O Russian, O British, O American-all are like this.

A mu’azzam (great) night

Last night was a mu’azzam (great) night. The bandits’ names were revealed in Heavens as well as the names of who are saeed (happy) and clean. There is a page on which their names are written with happiness and it appeared on the Preserved Tablet. And there is another group whose actions belong to hellfire. Their names also came out as bandits. Shame on those nations that couldn’t have their names written in the book of Saeeds (happy ones), they didn’t do the service Allah likes. Go ahead O Shah Mardan! O Yaran Shah Mardan. Listen! Understand! “‘Anna l- Quwata Lillahi Jami`aan” (2:165) Whole power, absolute sultanate belongs to our Lord. If He (SubhanaHu wa Ta’ala) judges you, there is no one who can save you because you didn’t accept your Lord, you refused His service. You slaughtered each other to rule the dirty dunya. Shame on you! O Bashar, what were you going to bring to the people of Syria? Here is the fire you brought, here are the weapons you brought. Shame on you and your humanity. But “Fa yantaqimu Llahu Minhu” (5:95). I will take revenge on them, says Allah Almighty.

O our Lord! For the honour of this holy night, for the honour of Your Habib (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam), send us a Sultan who will raise Your flags and defeat these ones. O our Lord, Ya Rabbi. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. May our lives be sacrificed for you, on your way, O beautiful Shah Mardan. Shah Mardan tells you to keep his way so that you may be accepted. Don’t puff up like a turkey. Don’t be proud with your weapons. Above you there are the armies of Angels who will crush and sweep you. A thousand angels descended and made the mushrik armies all scattered. If they didn’t scatter, another 3000, 5000, 7000 angels were standing waiting for the order. And all of them have taswim (marks) like this. It says “Al-Mala’ikati Musawwimina” (3:125). Where are you, O Muslims! You wear the unbelievers’ hats. Why don’t you wear this on your head so that you become majestic, so that angels descend for you.

O our Lord, may You forgive us. With the tajalli (manifestation) of last night, we hope that starting from today there will come the servants who will display the sign of Islam. They will sweep away the ones who don’t wear this sign. It says “Musawwimin”. O Lord, forgive us. O Shah Mardan. O Shah Mardan. You said it beautifully. Your yaran admire you. May these knowledges reach to our hearts. May our bodies enter the path you are speaking of. Our Lord is SubhanaHu wa Ta’ala. May we enter His path and gain majesty. No one may rebel, saying “I have weapons, cannons, planes”. All of their heads will fall off. He will not leave any Iranian, Turk or Alawi. When they raise their heads (rebel), he will crush their heads. There are some coiled snakes. May Allah keep us away from such snakes. That animal lies quietly. If you disturb it, it raises its head and attacks. Once it attacks, you can’t stop it anymore. Yes! There are snakes and there are dragons also. Dragons swallow all of the snakes and say “Is there more?”

Go ahead O Shah Mardan. There is a nation, there are soldiers among the soldiers Allah sent, who will swallow all the power of the unbelievers. Listen and fear. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. May our health be in afiyah (wellness). May we love and be loved. This should be our aim. We don’t love, neither are we loved. Shame on all the people, and on their claim of humanity. Who doesn’t love is not loved and who is not loved doesn’t love. O Ghani Sultan. Here is your yaran, O Shah Mardan. O yaran Shah Mardan. He is coming. He doesn’t fear any weapons. He can turn whole world upside down with one Takbir. Hide from it, beware of it. Don’t have a desire for the unbelievers- don’t say “I wish they were from us”. The powers that descended from Heavens for Muslims were not granted to the unbelievers. He can destroy them all with one breath. There is such a power. There are 7000 Angels ready in Heavens, to support Islam.

Come to your senses O Turk, O Kurd! Don’t say “I want this, I want that”. Seek the servanthood of Allah and everything comes to you, is given to you. If you don’t seek His servanthood what will happen to you is what will happen to the snake. Tawba Ya Rabbi, tawba Astaghfirullah. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Your yaran admire you. May we also be under your wing of power and protected by you. May he protect us, protect us O Shah Mardan. Protect us O Shah Mardan. Appear O Shah Mardan! O Allah! O Allah! O Allah! With the manifestation of last night may a power open for the nations of the Habib (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam), Ya Rabbi. May the unbelievers all die, disappear and eat each other. Don’t fight. “Wa kunu mina s-salihin”. “Be from the good ones” says Allah. If not, you are trash. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Masha Allah la quwwata illa biLlah.

Yes, it will definitely come. Starting from today, definitely a power will appear. It is the promise of Rabbu-l Izzat. O our Lord, for the honour of Your beloved Habib (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam) may You reveal the power of Shah Mardan. May You reveal it. May the majesty of Islam appear Ya Rabb. For the honour of Your Habib (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam), and for the honour of Shah Mardan, Fatiha.

This sohbat is strong. Pay attention. More will come after the news of last night. Pay attention, it will sweep. Who claim to be God… Leave aside the claims of being God, a tornado is coming that will sweep all who claim to be shaytan. There are small tornadoes coming now here and there, spinning. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. There is also another kind of tornado in Heaven. It sweeps everything when it descends.

Aman Ya Rabbi, tawba Ya Rabbi. tawba.

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.

BismillahirRahmanirRahim

Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi, Sohbat of 8th of July, 1988.

Al-Khidr

…ta’wila al-wasila, an explanation of wasila – mediary. He said this, because he could not comprehend the wisdom of this holy verse, saying, We’ll look after you. A word then came from Allah Almighty: Nobody can reach to this station without a mediary Whoever wishes to regard Us, who wishes to behold Our beauty, he should adopt a mediary to achieve this station. We have made so-and-so to be the qutub as a means to this goal. Meaning, he holds the key, he is the wasila / mediary. We have designated him to help you reach to Us, to bring you to the station where you can behold Us. If you do not find him, you will wait there for all eternity, for that station will not open to you without a mediary.

Yes, the Prophet Musa fell down and rose again. Why did the Prophet Musa go in search of al-Khidr, ‘alayhi s-salam? Was it only for the sake of adornment – To increase his knowledge? What was his intention in seeking to increase his knowledge? He, who was master of a shari’a / law, a prophet of great rank and standing, what could he have hoped to gain from the Prophet Khidr? What was his real purpose in seeking him out? Would he have sought the Prophet Khidr without purpose? The intention of seeking such a person who has been granted ‘ilmu laduni, knowledge directly imparted by Allah, that is actually the truth that was planted in his heart at the time when Allah Almighty spoke to him and said: you will not be able to behold Me, and when he fell down and rose up again. You can never look at Us directly. Without there being a mediary and a means / wasila you cannot ever reach that station. Therefore the Prophet Musa set out so urgently to find the one being in that age who had been granted knowledge from that source, who was prepared to be the guide, the means to this station.

The knowledge of ‘ilmu laduni which he possessed did not accord with the outward shari’a that the Prophet Musa had been given. It agreed with its inner truth, but not with its outward aspect. For there is truth in the shari’a, and of course the ‘ilmu laduni cannot be separated from the truth of the shari’a. So when al-Khidr destroyed the boat, and Musa chided him for that, it was the outward shari’a of Musa that voiced objection. As for the Truth, the inner aspect of the shari’a, when the Prophet al-Khidr, explained why he had done this, the truth of the shari’a approved and said Yes, you are right.

However, in our outward aspect we cannot accept this. But according to our inner truth your action agrees with us; so the outer aspect of the shari’a confirmed the actions of the Prophet al-Khidr, it is all right, it said. For that reason he made him undergo a threefold trial. And he saw that the Prophet Musa was not able to surpass the outward knowledge he had been given. The Prophet al-Khidr offered him three bridges. Three bridges he offered him, so that he might pass into the region of Truth. If you can’t go on this, take that one; if this won’t do, go on that one.

Cross on all three, if you like. This was enough for Musa, ‘alayhi s-salam. That is why the Prophet al-Khidr finally said there is no need for me to remain with you. You will not admit any more crossings than these, so cross over at those three crossings that you have made.

So he [Musa] was given permission. It was for this wasila that the Prophet Musa sought him out. Together with his slave boy, or his friend or his servant…
