Suhbah 2016: Maulana Shaykh Mehmet Adil ar-Rabbani (17/25)
ent day. The seven Great Ones (Ulul ‘Azm) who are the greatest prophets each had a different day. Allah Azza wa Jalla gifted the most virtuous of those days, the best, to our Holy Prophet (SAW). Allah Azza wa Jalla gave this beautiful day as a gift to our Holy Prophet (SAW) and to all of us, the Ummat.

Worships done on this day are more virtuous. Friday night starts after the Maghrib azan2 on Thursday. This night is also amongst the holy nights. It is also as holy as special nights. The duas3 and worships done are more acceptable. There is a time of acceptance on Friday, so if a dua is made at this time it is accepted. Therefore, show respect to Friday and do more duas.

May your good duas be accepted Inshallah and may they be a guidance for this Ummat. May Allah give mind and intelligence to those who have gone astray. May they come back to the right path, to the path of Allah. May they not follow the path of people who have gone off the path of Allah, as they are not to be folllowed.

Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq. Al-Fatiha.

148.PRESENT DAY NIMRODS Friday, August 5, 2016

Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh, Auzu Billahi Minashaytanir Rajeem. Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, Wassalatu Wassalamu ala Rasulina Muhammadin Sayyidul Awwalin wal Akhirin, Madad Ya Rasulallah, Madad Ya As’habi RasuLillah, Madad Ya Mashayikhina, Sheykh Abdullah Daghestani, Sheykh Nazim al-Haqqani. Dastur. Tariqatunas sohba, wal khayru fil jamiyya.

Ya Rabbi, tonight is also Friday night. Let us say a couple of words and Inshallah it will be useful for everybody. There would be rewards for you and there would be rewards for us Inshallah. Shaykh Mawlana (QS) would give good examples and tell stories most of the time.

Once upon a time there was a mouse. There is a jug and it is filled with wine. The mouse fell in the wine jug then managed to get out of it. Somehow it managed to get out and not die. But before spitting and leaving, it swallowed quite a bit in the jug. When it drank the wine and got out it said, “Where is that ill-mannered cat? Let me at him!” It thought it was a lion.

These people are like this too. People who do not know their limits think they are something special. They do not see the humility of our Holy Prophet (SAW). In the slightest instance, they get so arrogant and so haughty by themselves, if they had the chance they would come out like pharaoh saying, “I am the greatest god! I am your god!” The times do not fit them, but they are pretty much implying this.

No prophet ever since Adam Alayhis Salam showed greatness or got haughty. They did not get superior on people, but they served them. They begged and pleaded to show the way to people, and suffered all kinds of torment. If they were the least arrogant, nobody would get near them anyway. Yet you cannot get near to any of Shaitan’s men due to arrogance and superiority.

As an example, take Pharaoh, take Nimrod, take Abu Jahl, and take Qarun: there are many present day people like them. Wherever there is a man being arrogant, a man saying, “I am/it’s me,” he is not following the way of our Prophet (SAW) but is on the way of Shaitan. And he, as we said, is like the mouse by the jug: he has no value next to Allah Azza wa Jalla.

What are you doing? The mouse is still a tiny thing, but it has worth. You have no worth next to Allah’s greatness. A person that is arrogant like that has no worth whatsoever.

They came and they passed. They are being cursed till Judgment Day, and they are being damned till Judgment Day. Whoever is arrogant, whoever says, “I am/it’s me,” is cursed.

Do not abide by your ego! The nafs blows a person up like a balloon and in the end it bursts away. Do not be fooled! Whoever says, “I am/it’s me,” the egotism is from Shaitan. Stay away from that person. You saw true shaykhs. The best example of who a true shaykh is in front of us, our Shaykh Mawlana (QS). He never got superior or arrogant. We hear new things from every person, however many examples there might be. He did not get arrogant saying, “I am a shaykh,” but he tried to serve them saying, “I am a shaykh.”

A couple of days ago someone came knocking on the door at midnight, and we did not open the door. Someone was telling us the other day, when Shaykh Mawlana was in Cyprus, the time was 1:30 AM and he was still seeing people. Just as the men were leaving, a group of people came saying, “We came from Malatya.” Shaykh Mawlana told them to come later. Then he said to them, “Alright come.” He said to himself, “You should not have become a shaykh.”

Meaning, “Since you are a shaykh, you will endure this and serve.” Who can do this? Who among the fake shaykhs, fake things, of ours can do this? These are good examples. Mercy is recited on these shaykhs until the Day of Judgment. While people who get arrogant, people who think something of themselves, and people who have superiority delusion are cursed.

May Allah keep us safe. May Allah not make us in need of anybody Inshallah. May Allah give from His own treasures. For the sake of this night, may all of our good objectives be realized Inshallah.


149.BROTHERHOOD OF A MUSLIM WITH A MUSLIM Saturday, August 6, 2016

Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh, Auzu Billahi Minashaytanir Rajeem. Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, Wassalatu Wassalamu ala Rasulina Muhammadin Sayyidul Awwalin wal Akhirin, Madad Ya Rasulallah, Madad Ya As’habi RasuLillah, Madad Ya Mashayikhina, Sheykh Abdullah Daghestani, Sheykh Nazim al-Haqqani. Dastur. Tariqatunas sohba, wal khayru fil jamiyya.

There is a matter again, it is a great virute, as it is a matter praised by our Holy Prophet (SAW). A Muslim should try to take care of a Muslim’s work. If there is a situation where a Muslim can help materially or spiritually they should do so, for Allah would also help them.

The Arabic version of the hadith is not in my mind exactly, since when it is a hadith it should be said without omissions. But the meaning of the hadith is: as long as a person, a Muslim, is helping his Muslim brother, Allah would be helping him in return. Therefore, if there is a brother of ours that is asking for help, you may help them materially and spiritually as much as you can. We need to help because just as we do good for ourselves, a Muslim should also do and help another Muslim.

We can also see these days, even if not materially we need to help spiritually. It is help to say, “This person is a good person. Do not harm him, do not oppress him.” Saying and being a witness as, “We are a witness to him. We are a guarantor,” is a great help. This is even greater than material help. The one who listens will listen. If they do not listen, Allah will have listened and Allah would give him his reward.

Because it is End Times now, dishonest people have found an apporunity. They are oppressing good people in order to hide themselves. They are the ones who need to be oppressed and they are oppressing others in order for themselves to scuttle through. Allah sees this, and if there are people who see this they also need to say, “This is not right,” so justice finds its place. Mercy descends if justice finds its place. If not, may Allah be our helper.

Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq. Al-Fatiha.

150.DO NOT READ THE RISALAH NUR, READ THE KORAN Saturday, August 6, 2016

Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh, Auzu Billahi Minashaytanir Rajeem. Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, Wassalatu Wassalamu ala Rasulina Muhammadin Sayyidul Awwalin wal Akhirin, Madad Ya Rasulallah, Madad Ya As’habi RasuLillah, Madad Ya Mashayikhina, Sheykh Abdullah Daghestani, Sheykh Nazim al-Haqqani. Dastur. Tariqatunas sohba, wal khayru fil jamiyya.

It has been a while since we came to this dargah, but thank Allah we are here now. May the blessing1 of the holy one (Hazrat Abu Ayyub al-Ansari RA) be upon us Inshallah. The holy sultan, the great sultan, and the spiritual sultan. With his himma2 and with his baraka, however many dirty nations there were, nations that went off the path, Allah (JJ) defeated them. Allah defeated them, but we see again Shaitan is not idle and bothers the nation for nothing.

Shaykh Mawlana (QS) had said: last century, the 20th century, was the unbelief3 century. 1900s were years kufr was darkest. It started at the beginning of 1900s and reaches till the 2000s, till now. However, the tables have now turned in the 21st century. Now, kufr is down and Islam is up Allah willing.

There were many people ready to help Sultan Abdul Hamid Khan. Each of the Ottoman sultans had the power of seven awliya. Whether they know it or not, they had that power and Allah would have helped. Since Sultan Abdul Hamid got the signal, he sacrificed himself. He made the sacrifice because the Ottomans were to disintegrate, a great many states would emerge, kufr would reach its peak, and so not much Muslim blood would spill. He sufferred, endured, and was patient. Allah gave him his reward in the world, people appreciated his worth later, and his station in the hereafter is lofty.

Now this time around, Allah willing, the good is for us, the good is for Islam. And evil is for the infidels, the heretics, and those who have gone astray.

س ˚ك ˚م ال َّنا ˚ر

ف´ت´ ´م ظل´ ˚موا

و ´ل ت´ ˚ر ´كن˚وا إ¸ ´لى الَّ ¸ذي ´ن

“Wala tarkanu ilallathena thalamu fatamassakum an-nar.” (Sura Hud:113) “And do not incline toward those who do wrong, lest you be touched by the Fire.” Therefore, even though Shaitan is defeated these days, he makes various dissension4 for Muslims so there would be no peace, and people would not find rest, be enemies to each other, or look at each other with suspicion .

A Muslim relies on Allah (JJ). Nothing would happen without the help of Allah. Allah helps and it happens with Allah’s favor. Thank Allah this century is the time for Muslims. It is End Times already. Our Holy Prophet (SAW) had also mentioned many signs, and most are gradually appearing.

Let us seek help from Allah. Many people are victimised. This, you see, also happens because of the works of these shaitans. Shaitans don all kinds of guises to try and scare people. They don every kind of guise to drag the country into fitna and mischief. Thinking they are doing good, they complain and victimise people. Innocent clean people are being vitimised, and those complaining are the real shaitans.

Whoever is making these accusations and complaints, they need to be investigated first. Because this is also a big weapon. This is a more dangerous weapon than tanks and cannons. The wails of the oppressed reach Allah’s level without veil. They could not do it themselves with tanks and cannons. By tyrannizing people this time they are trying to call disaster by all means necessary.

We have no authority, we have nothing to do with anybody [of political power], and our voice is not heard in high places. However, we are giving advice here for the sake of Allah. We have not received, thank Allah, any contributions from anybody. May Allah be content with the President and with the Prime Minister. Not a single penny’s worth or anything else came from them to this tariqa of ours, the branch of Shaykh Nazim (QS). Let us also openly mention this here because we hear things. We have nothing to do with anybody for material gain. We are not working for that.

Thank Allah however many wrecked, rundown, and ramshackle dargahs there were here, 20-30 years ago Shaykh Mawlana (QS) told us to buy them. We never kept any of them. We thank Allah for this, for nobody can then say things like, “They were close to the government and they gave it to them.” Allah granted it to us through our own means, and we are managing with rent and the like thank Allah. This is why we are giving advice here, so nobody would be harmed.

Islam’s head is here. Only this country is left in the world standing against the kafir with a raised head. There is no other place. Shaykh Mawlana (QS) would say, “The West, may it be damned.” This is why all these [military coup attempt] things are happening. Let them come. It is not important. Their tanks and artillery do not mean a thing and it cannot harm us Allah willing. But as we said, they know this too. That is why they had an opportunity to instigate the nation. They have a huge weapon in their hands. It is the curse of the wronged [due to the purge].

We are very scared of this. Otherwise, our nation Mashallah stood in front of tanks, went under tanks, and bullets were fired, but it did not take a step back. Thank Allah we have

it all and we do not have fear. However, as we said, the whole of our nation is merciful and does not want the sigh of the oppressed. We need to be very careful of this. As we said, we need to thoroughly investigate the informers. We heard of many and saw unrelated people getting affected: the people of that group [FETO] would not only not let them near themselves, they would not even let them get a hundred meters within themselves. We saw many people who were informed on and got victimised. Even so, these people are being patient and saying, “Inshallah the truth will come out.” We need to speak these things. It is not right to say “this is not the time”. Mistakes need to be spoken at the beginning so they are immediately fixed.

Justice is an important thing, and the most important thing is the saying, “Justice delayed is justice denied.” If you provide justice after five or ten years, the person might die or people might forget the person’s victimisation, and then it is of no use. Thank Allah we are on the right path. We need to correct it immediately at the beginning in order not to go astray. We need to trust in Allah and not fear anybody. As we said, we do not need to live in fear thinking, “They will do it again. They will try again.” Allah willing they cannot do it.

عل´ى ا َّ ¸ّلل

َّك ˚ل وت´ ´و

ود´ ˚ع أ´ذ´ا ˚ه ˚م

“Wada’ athahum watawakkal alallah.” (Sura Ahzab:48) It says, “Trust in Allah.” Do the orders of Allah. Be thankful of Allah. The whole matter to be happy about is Allah’s favor reached us, His help reached us. If it was not for Him, who knows what situation we would be in in these hours. Because infidels have no mercy. Muslims have mercy.

The kafir would never have mercy on you. The kafir has mercy on himself. They are selfish. The difference between the kafir and the Muslim is, even their psychologists say, the West’s culture is selfishness and everybody has individualism. Islam is not so.

Islam thinks about its environment as well. We took many things from the West, but thank Allah they could not completely give us that thing. Of course, they poisoned us little by little, but it did not completely turn out as they wanted.

These are End Times. Shaykh Mawlana (QS) pointed it many times through signs he took from our Holy Prophet (SAW) and referencing hadiths. Some listen to his old sohbats. Things happening today are mentioned in many places in sohbats. Inshallah Islam is victorious again from now on, and the arrival of Mahdi Alayhis Salam gets closer Inshallah.

Now, Mahdi Alayhis Salam will not come out just like that. Surely the whole world will be like this, as our Holy Prophet (SAW) referred to as “turmult5.” Meaning it will be such a mess so that tyranny makes such a peak, so Mahdi Alayhis Salam comes and

spreads his justice, and Isa6 Alayhis Salam descends. Afterwards, following 40 years Doomsday occurs. It is close by Allah willing because this cannot last forever. This is a period. Because Allah Azza wa Jalla created too many things and His creativity continues. At one stage they asked, “How many?” An angel replied, “Which Adam?” “Are there other Adams too?” they asked. This is apparently the 124th thousand Adam, our Adam Alayhis Salam. Did the grandness and might of Allah Azza wa Jalla end with only us, creating this many people then? Perish the thought.7

˚مو ¸سع˚و ´ن و ¸إنَّا ´ل

˚ين´ا ´ها ¸بأ´ ˚ي „د س ´ما ´ء ´بن´


“Wassama’ banaynaha bi’aydin wa’inna lamusioon.” (Sura Thariya:47) “We built the sky and we are expanding it, it still continues.” Therefore, our time is not forever. When the time comes, Doomsday will occur and all of it will happen. Afterwards, the Gathering8 (Last Judgment), we will be questioned, and heaven and hell are forever at that time.

This world has a time, whatever it is, say 5,000 or 10,000 years. It does not pass that time, definitely some things will happen, and then it is over. People say, “Untill eternity. Forever,” and say some ignorant words sometimes. What do you say to them? There is no need to say anything. “We are here for eternity.” Where? The most you will live is a hundred years. It is good if you live that long.

Therefore, this worls is paradise for the faithless and the place of trade for the faithful. You will strive and work for the hereafter. Do not ruin your hereafter for the world. This world is not even as much as a blink of an eye next to the hereafter, it is less. There will be people who will stand for 100, 1,000, 5,000, and 10,000 years in the Gathering alone. So there are people who will stand as much as from the time of Adam Alayhis Salam till now in the Gathering alone. You cannot object there. Allah placed you, you will suffer that pain, and then you will either go to heaven or hell.

Therefore, to spill the blood of one person for worldly gain and to misguide one person are not unaccountable. These are things that will be accounted for. If there are people who did not come to their senses yet, let them pay attention and let them read the Koran. Let them read the Koran, and they should read good interpretations of it. Let them not read Sayyid Qutub nor the Risalah of Nur. Nobody understands it either.

You will read the Koran. They all read without understanding the Risalah Nur, and there you see, they came out terrorists. They used to say, “This is better than the Koran.” Hasha, nothing can be better than the Koran. Let those who will get mad get mad. Shaykh Mawlana (QS) said it too. He said, “Bury the Risalah Nur!” You do not understand it. Even those who read it first recited it in front of Shaykh Mawlana, and

Shaykh Mawlana says, “He told people the opposite of what he recited.” Read proper books!

Does the one who fires a bullet at a Muslim and a woman be Muslim? For God’s sake9, they are not even human. Where did they learn this? There, they learned it from this thing. Where else can they learn it from? This is what you get when you do not read Koran and when you do not read hadiths. Or they learned it from the never ever, the one who spoiled the Koran, Sayyid Qutub and what not. They learned it from those Ikhwan.

Let me also talk about them here. Both imam-khatibs and these others study them. They are Salafi and reformist. These are things that corrupt religion. These are things that did not exist during Ottoman times, things that came out after the Ottomans. Let us be careful since all these troubles fall upon us because of them.

Let people go after true murshids9. Do not go after a person who praises himself, who extolls himself. Shaykh Mawlana never ever said, “I am.” Even our Holy Prophet (SAW) said, “I am a normal person.” Even when Allah (JJ) reveals to him, he says he does not know. How can you get up and go after a man who says he is with Allah every minute?! Tawba Astaghfirullah. May Allah give them a mind and understanding.

Our nation is very naive. Naivete is good, but read some Koran if you are naive. See if this man is telling the truth or not. We are saying there are many people till now who say, “No, it is not like that. It is like this.” What are you going to do now on? From now on the sins go to you. You are harming yourself by yourself. Once you harm yourself by yourself then you will suffer. It is not important suffering in the world, but it is worse in the hereafter.

May Allah help us, may Allah make us successful. May Allah protect us from the evils of Shaitan, from the evils of Shaitan’s soldiers, and from the evils of people who are like Shaitan. May Allah not make us go astray. May Allah not put an end to this country. May He not put an end to Mu’mins and Muslims. May Allah not allow us to take the rights of anybody Inshallah. May there not be injustice Inshallah. We are going through troublesome days. May Allah give His blessing to the livelihood10 of people here. Allah is Razzaq, He gives everyone their livelihood. May there not be distress Inshallah. May they eat and drink from the lawful11 with baraka. May they be thankful to Allah and Inshallah be soldiers for Islam, soldiers for Mahdi Alayhis Salam.

151. THE BENEFITS OF NIGHT PRAYERS Sunday, August 7, 2016

Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh, Auzu Billahi Minashaytanir Rajeem. Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, Wassalatu Wassalamu ala Rasulina Muhammadin Sayyidul Awwalin wal Akhirin, Madad Ya Rasulallah, Madad Ya As’habi RasuLillah, Madad Ya Mashayikhina, Sheykh Abdullah Daghestani, Sheykh Nazim al-Haqqani. Dastur. Tariqatunas sohba, wal khayru fil jamiyya.

The life of our Holy Prophet (SAW) is light1 for us. His words are light. They are all a means for us to come out to safety from this dark life, this dark world. People lose their way because of the darkness of some people even in this time of daylight.

The words of our Holy Prophet (SAW) are beautiful. One of his most important recommendations is night prayers. He says: “Two rakats of night prayer is better than a hundred rakats day prayer.” It is a sunna to definitely pray two rakats before going to bed. This becomes standing up at night2 and it counts as if you got up at night.

This is what happens when you pray two rakats before going to bed. Tahajjud is getting up after going to bed. But if you stay up all night it is not Tahajjud - it is Qiyamul Layl. When this is the case, the rewards for Tahajjud is more. There were many awliya who could spend the night without going to bed, yet still they would go to bed for 15 minutes and sometimes half an hour so they could catch Tahajjud. Tahajjud is a sunna. Then they would get up and pray their sunna prayers.

Sura Muzzammil is one of the first suras to be revealed to our Holy Prophet (SAW). It says: “Get up at night and pray.” Back then the five daily prayers were not obligatory3 and they would pray at night. Our Master (SAW) would pray all night. In fact, his feet would swell. Then Allah Azza wa Jalla ordered to “Pray less. There is no need to pray all night. Pray half of what you are praying. Pray less than what you pray so you can keep up with worldly works and help the hereafter.” This way Allah (JJ) has shown us ease.

Night prayers, Tahajjud, is one of the orders to be followed by those who have entered tariqa. Even if two rakats, praying before morning prayer4 is a means for rewards as if one has stood up all night, praying without going to bed, and worshipping. It becomes a means for the person’s life to be illuminated, to be lit.

Gloom has spread, darkness has spread even more these days because it is End Times. We are in need of light, in need of illumination. Darkness without light gives savagery

inside people and it weakens the faith5. Light increases iman and gives relief to people. Relief is only possible through iman. Faithless people are always in darkness, in surrow. Nobody else, nothing else can give people the relief that Allah gives. Even if it gives artificially, it ends after a while and it becomes worse. Let us obey what Allah gives and says. Inshallah may our insides be filled with light. May Allah be content with all of you.

Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq. Al-Fatiha.

Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh, Auzu Billahi Minashaytanir Rajeem. Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, Wassalatu Wassalamu ala Rasulina Muhammadin Sayyidul Awwalin wal Akhirin, Madad Ya Rasulallah, Madad Ya As’habi RasuLillah, Madad Ya Mashayikhina, Sheykh Abdullah Daghestani, Sheykh Nazim al-Haqqani. Dastur. Tariqatunas sohba, wal khayru fil jamiyya.

Whether people are rich or poor, there is no complete comfort in the world. Or there are lots of difficulties in the world. How can people escape from these hardships, difficulties, and all kinds of things? With one thing – and that is iman. They can try whatever and it does not happen with anything else. Whatever pain, hardship, and any kind of trouble there is: the stronger the person’s faith, the more at ease they are.

Since our Holy Prophet (SAW) also says in his hadith: “The people who see the most troubles are prophets.” Their iman is complete. Then it is awliya, sahaba, and so on. Allah gives everybody burden accordingly, such that no matter how much pain they suffer they do not care at all because they have faith. They have believed in Allah and said, “These come from Allah.” But as faith weakens people rebel, and they would be harming themselves more.

Whereas the stronger faith gets, these would be troubles and would be hardships would not be of the slightest importance and one would say, “This is a small matter.” In the past, in old tribes, it says in the Koran too, they would light a fire and throw in it. You will either renounce your faith or you will burn in the fire. He says, “I will burn in the fire.” And this is from the strength of faith.

They do not know this secret. They know, but this secret means iman, it means belief. Shaitan tells them, “Do not believe.” Those who do not believe will suffer. They suffer all life long. Those who have a little faith are saved, and those who do not will suffer worse in the hereafter.

May Allah grant us iman. Inshallah may He fill our hearts with faith. Inshallah then the person would be relieved. One gets worse when one disbelieves and rebels. Allah forbid! May Allah make us live with faith and die with faith Inshallah.


153.DO NOT BE WITH TRAITOROUS PEOPLE Monday, August 8, 2016

Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh, Auzu Billahi Minashaytanir Rajeem. Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, Wassalatu Wassalamu ala Rasulina Muhammadin Sayyidul Awwalin wal Akhirin, Madad Ya Rasulallah, Madad Ya As’habi RasuLillah, Madad Ya Mashayikhina, Sheykh Abdullah Daghestani, Sheykh Nazim al-Haqqani. Dastur. Tariqatunas sohba, wal khayru fil jamiyya.

What does Allah (JJ) order us in terms of who to be with? Authu Billahi Minashshaitanir Rajim. Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim.

“Ya Ayuhal lathena aamanut taqullaha wa kunoo ma’assadiqeen.” (Sura Tawba:119) (O you who have believed, fear [disobedience against] Allah and be with those who are true.) He says, “Fear Allah and be with those who are true, not who are liers.” Those who hold this advice, order, are at ease. So if you fear Allah you would not do evil. When you are with people who are not liers, people who are true and honest, this is also a beautiful blessing.

You do not realize when you will be harmed when you are with traitorous people. All of a sudden you realize he put you in great loss and trouble. Therefore, you need to always be careful who you become friends with. You need to be careful who you meet with and who you talk to.

Do not abandon yourself to him if he is not a good person. You can continuously warn them, from the point of giving advice, so they fix themselves. If they always stay bad, if there is lies and trickery, you would not be friends with them and you would be at ease. May Allah make us all from amongst the true ones Inshallah.

Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq. Al-Fatiha.

154.ONE OF FORTY DAJJALS Monday, August 8, 2016

-Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu dear viewers.

At the moment we are with a shaykh of the Naqshbandis, Hazrat Shaykh Mehmet Adil in the Beylerbeyi Badawi Tekke. Firstly, we would like to thank Shaykh Efendi very much for accepting this inteview. Thank you very much my Master.

-May Allah be content with you. Wa Alaykum Assalam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. It is our duty. Well, we would have liked not to interfere in these things. We never interfere in politics but this is not politics anymore. This is telling the truth. “Assakitu ‘anil haqq ash-shaitanul akhras.” I think it is a Hadith Sharif. It means, “Whoever does not tell the truth is a tongueless devil.” This is an important matter. It continues. Some people are wronged, and others continue to be fooled. This is why we accepted this interview. Otherwise we do not appear on television, meaning we do not like these matters. But this is done out of compulsion. Inshallah it is of some benefit.

-May Allah be content with you my Master. With your permission, I would like to deliver my first question my Master. You have a sohbat made in Golbashi, Ankara [Dargah]. It is a sohbat that received a fairly good feedback on the internet too. Until now my Master, as you know already, there is a lingleader, Feto (Fethullah Gülen), of the FETO organisation that made us go through all these problems. There were those from the scholars and elders who said until now he is a murtad, he left religion, and there were those who made some remarks, but there were none such as you who made a precise determination calling him a dajjal. Based on that sohba, my Sultan, the question we want to ask you: can we call Feto a dajjal, and if we do, what would be our evidence for this?

-Now the real Dajjal we are referring to is the person our Holy Prophet (SAW) talks about. He will emerge in End Times. That is the real Dajjal, but he said, “Forty will appear before him.” They fooled these people and showed religion in another form. We had baught into it all, we were not saying anything, but when blood was spilled we could not stay silent anymore. So this is of that type from now on. We cannot call it anything else. Because as a tariqa and as Muslims, what we have learned from our Holy Prophet (SAW) is mercy. A Muslim, does not spill the blood of anybody, be it Muslim or not, and does not do such things undeservedly. However, after making the blood of a Muslim, an alim, and a mumin lawful, we cannot call them anything but dajjal.

Therefore, we are not calling him the real Dajjal but one of the forty. Because he wronged a huge portion of people and inflicted a lot of cruelty. A lot of people have been fooled till now, and there are still those who are being fooled. That is why we are saying this,

since dajjal shows the truth as false and the false as true. He shows heaven as hell and hell as heaven. Whoever goes after him for heaven goes to hell. On the other hand, those who confront him and jump at it as hell, they go to heaven. Because the real Dajjal also martyrs those who do not accept him.

This situation that we see is also almost the same. There is nothing else that can be seen. There is nothing left that can be forgiven, nothing that can be shown as an excuse. We are sad for this, even after all these things have happened some people are saying, “No, he would not do that.” Of course, people who say such things are naive people, they are deceived people, such that until now they say, “This man would not do this.” There, he did it. So everything is out in the open.

I was born in Sham1. We saw the Ba’th regime and those coups. It would only happen there: so many times they entered the Amawi Mosque2 with tanks. A coup would occur every six months there. These things would happen. We saw it in Lebanon in ’72: Israeli tanks would run over cars with people in them like this. So we are not accepting an excuse or the sort from anybody who has done this. We cannot show the slightest thing as an excuse. If we say so we would be a liar, a false witness. And being a false witness is one of the worst sins.

-Alright my Master, you said dajjalism has infiltrated inside them so much, people who go after them would also go to hell. There are still people, in the name of Hizmat, who say, “Our my Master Rasulullah (SAW) gave the responsibility of Turkey to Hodja Efendi (Feto). Whatever he does he does it for a reason,” and go after him. What would you like to say to these people my Master? What warnings would you have?

-We said it shortly before anyway: there is no excuse left, nothing is left as an excuse. Let them save themselves from danger. Those who come to their senses should be thankful to Allah. Let them offer prayer of thanks3 saying, “We have been saved from this in the world, so we would at least be saved in the hereafter as well.”

-Alright. my Master, lastly for what comes after this, is there a threat still posed by them for the Ummat4, for our country, and for the nation?

-They pose no more threat Allah willing. There is no threat, but it is the time of dissension, it is End Times. Afterall, since this Turkish nation put its head out for Islam, troubles have not been lacking and all devils are attacking. Thank Allah wherever we go we see that our nation is on the path of Allah (JJ), on the path of the Prophet (SAW), and have sacrificed their blood and soul on the right path.

Blood spilled like a flood everywhere: in Central Asia, in Russia, and wherever. Our nation has sacrificed their lives for Allah without ever blinking an eye. That is why Shaitan’s greatest enemy is our nation. They are finished thank Allah. Others now, we need to be careful of others. We need to be careful of other fitnas. They have no power left. Just so the nation would be uneasy they are saying words like, “This will happen and that will happen.” They cannot do anything from now on Allah willing.

-Inshallah this fitna is over my Sultan.


-Alright my Master. May Allah be content with you. Thank you very much. We had another question regarding this subject but you have answered it too just now. We were going to ask, “What do you think of the folk who pour into streets following 15 July? Is there a reward for jihad here?” By saying our nation is the enemy of Shaitan you have answered this question.

-Thank Allah, thank Allah. It is as you said. You see that things you never like are happening. Sometimes a person looks at the nation and thinks, “How awkward.” Meaning you see the bad state, but when things get serious, Allah brings out that instinct inside and they go after the way of the ancestors, immediately waking up.

-Alright, we thank you very much my Master.

-Thank you.

-May Allah be content, because of your valuable explanation.

-Thank you, thank you. May Allah be content. Salamu alaykum. May Allah protect us all Inshallah.

155. LEARN TO ENDURE AND FORGIVE Wednesday, August 10, 2016

Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh, Auzu Billahi Minashaytanir Rajeem. Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, Wassalatu Wassalamu ala Rasulina Muhammadin Sayyidul Awwalin wal Akhirin, Madad Ya Rasulallah, Madad Ya As’habi RasuLillah, Madad Ya Mashayikhina, Sheykh Abdullah Daghestani, Sheykh Nazim al-Haqqani. Dastur. Tariqatunas sohba, wal khayru fil jamiyya.

Humans beings need to endure to get along in life. Everybody would pass their life easier if everybody endured each other and showed tolerance. Now, when one’s brother says something, the other says something worse. When a father says something to his child, the child gets angry at him, and when the mother says something the child gets angry at her too. So even if they are in the wrong, saying, “This man is old and he is not going to change any longer,” would form an excuse and the anger would go away. It has been going on for 70 or 80 years anyway. It is not going to change. There is no need to get angry at your friend either. It gets worse when you are angry. You are suffering and you are carrying ill feelings towards the other person.

We need to find an excuse for everything to avoid anger. You need to find an excuse for the other person and avoid anger thinking, “He/she might not be feeling well today. Maybe that is why he/she is acting like this. He/she might be like this today because of the heat. Today it is because of…” This trait is found in Kaamil people1. So many such things would come across Shaykh Mawlana and we would get angry. Shaykh Mawlana would find such excuses for the person that it would make you laugh. Meaning he would approach with such tolerance. He would excuse everybody not to get angry at them because they were human beings. People would live better if they acted as such. There would be better friendships, better father and child, and mother and child relations.

They would get along and it would be beautiful. On the contrary, adding on every day, it will end with either a quarrel or not talking to each other. It is worse when they are not talking to each other. Only bad people and shaitans would be happy for this. They are happy when people are upset at or enemies with each other. Good people are not happy with this. On the contrary, good people are sad and want to make up between them.

The other person can have little faults. It is not a big deal. As we said, Inshallah we need to find an excuse for each fault and forgive them. We are also more at peace Inshallah when we forgive. We would be at peace inside and would not not deal with things that do not concern us2. And when we do this mercy comes from Allah and we get rewarded Inshallah. May Allah be content with you.

156.WE FOLLOW THE GRANDFATHER OF SAYYIDS Thursday, August 11, 2016

Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh, Auzu Billahi Minashaytanir Rajeem. Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, Wassalatu Wassalamu ala Rasulina Muhammadin Sayyidul Awwalin wal Akhirin, Madad Ya Rasulallah, Madad Ya As’habi RasuLillah, Madad Ya Mashayikhina, Sheykh Abdullah Daghestani, Sheykh Nazim al-Haqqani. Dastur. Tariqatunas sohba, wal khayru fil jamiyya.

Our Holy Prophet (SAW) says, “Whoever says I have said something when I have not said it, or says I have not said something when I have said it, let them prepare a place for themselves in hell.” People of today knowingly say, “Our Holy Prophet (SAW) says this. The Prophet (SAW) did not say that.” These people are under a great burden and they have sinned. This is one issue. Then there are those who come out saying, “I am sayyid,” when in fact they are not. Their guilt is worse.

Our Holy Prophet (SAW) says, “Learn your ancestry, where you come from.” People of today do not look at this much. At most, they know who their grandfather is, or who the father of their grandfather is. They can go back that much. Whereas ancestry, where lineage comes from and where it is going is an important thing. People need to pay attention to this. Let them also not think they have gained benefit when they claim something that is not so. They will answer fot it too.

Everything has an accounting. This world does not end here. The real life, those things that will be questioned are in the hereafter. There is no such thing as, “I did it and it is done.” You did it and it is done, but even though sometimes things happen, people sometimes get away with many things they do in the world, it is not so in the hereafter. They need to repent and ask for forgiveness so they can be saved in the hereafter. Let them regret what they did. They can only be saved this way. Let them not think otherwise as, “I did it and it benefited me.”

This carries a great burden because they are fooling people saying, “I am sayyid,” and people go after them to wrong ways thinking one is sayyid. There is no need to follow a person who is sayyid and is on the wrong path. We follow the sayyid’s grandfather, not the sayyid. He showed us the way. If there are sayyids who have gone astray, Allah would guide them Inshallah. We have no permission to do their mistakes.

Nobody can order disobedience of Allah. It is not right to follow such a person, whoever it may be. Let this be known as well, because our people respect our Holy Prophet (SAW) and his lineage. We need to follow our Holy Prophet (SAW). Sayyids are on top of our

heads, and most of them are on the right path anyway, but Shaitan can play with people sometimes. They are not all inculpable. The only one guiltless is our Holy Prophet (SAW). Nobody after him is innocent. May Allah not misguide us from the right path and not make us lose our way Inshallah.

Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq. Al-Fatiha.

157.MAKING SHOW IS A SIGN OF HYPOCRISY Friday, August 12, 2016

Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh, Auzu Billahi Minashaytanir Rajeem. Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, Wassalatu Wassalamu ala Rasulina Muhammadin Sayyidul Awwalin wal Akhirin, Madad Ya Rasulallah, Madad Ya As’habi RasuLillah, Madad Ya Mashayikhina, Sheykh Abdullah Daghestani, Sheykh Nazim al-Haqqani.

“Wala ratbin wala yaabisin illa fi kitabin mubeen.” (Sura An’am:59) (And no moist or dry thing but that it is written in a clear record.) Everything is written in the Glorious Koran. Things that will happen from the time of Adam Alayhis Salam to the Day of Judgment are written. It teaches and shows everything. Some pass over a sura quickly because it is short.

Authu Billahi Minash-shaitanir Rajim. Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim.

¸بال ’¸دي ¸ن َٰذ´ ¸ل ´ك ا َّل ¸ذي ´يد˚ع ا ˚ل ´ي ¸تي ´م و ´ل ´ي ˚حض عل´ َٰى ط ´عا ¸م ا ˚ل ¸م ˚س ¸كي ¸ن ´و ˚ي ˚ل ¸ل ˚ل ˚مص ¸ل’ين أ´ ´رأ´ ˚يت الَّ ¸ذي ي˚ ´ك ¸ذ’ب It says, “Ara’aytallathe yukathibu biddeen. Fathalikallathe yadu’ulyateem. Wala yahuddu ‘ala ta’am al-miskeen. Fawaylun lilmusalleen.” (Sura al-Ma’un:1-4) (Have you seen the one who denies the Recompense? For that is the one who drives away the orphan. And does not encourage the feeding of the poor. So woe to those who pray). So it says “woe” to those who pray. Which type of those who pray are woed and their situation is pitied? الَّ ¸ذي ´ن ه ˚م ي˚ ´را ˚ءو ´ن و ´ي ˚م ´نع˚و ´ن ا ˚ل ´ماعو ´ن “Allathena hum yura’un. Wayamna’un al-ma’un.” (Sura al-Ma’un:6-7) (Those who make show of their deeds. And withhold simple assistance.) They are the ones who are in hypocrisy1. They are in riya by offering their prayers in great awe2 in front of people. They pray in a very good way to make show to people. They show themselves to be good in front of people, but when it comes to help, when it comes to helping Islam and when it comes to helping people they do not allow it. May Allah avoid us from this state Inshallah.

These things happen: when the Shaykh comes all works are done. When he is not around – nothing. This is complete riya. We are giving a little example of riya from what people do. There are many examples all the way to the largest. There you go, what the country is going through is nothing but riya. Riya is not good, it is a sign of hypocrisy3. You need to do everything for Allah. Do not do it for show. They jump and flip a hundred flips in front of people, but when they are left alone all filth is with them, the hypocrites. Stay

away from the trait of hypocrisy. May we stay far Inshallah. This is a trait disliked by Allah. It is also a trait disliked by people. They call him a Pharisee, and being a Pharisee is never a good trait. Let us try to stay away from that trait.

Be the same in front of people as you are when you are alone. If your state is not good then fix your state. Just as you look good in front of people, be good and in good character when you are alone. You will look good in front of people and do all bad things when people are not around? Why is this not good? Because the most important thing is Allah Azza wa Jalla sees you. He sees your riya and hypocrisy. May Allah protects us from riya, hypocrisy, and bad morals.

158.THOSE WHO DO NOT FEEL LIKE STRANGERS Monday, September 5, 2016

Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh, Auzu Billahi Minashaytanir Rajeem. Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, Wassalatu Wassalamu ala Rasulina Muhammadin Sayyidul Awwalin wal Akhirin, Madad Ya Rasulallah, Madad Ya As’habi RasuLillah, Madad Ya Mashayikhina, Sheykh Abdullah Daghestani, Sheykh Nazim al-Haqqani. Dastur. Tariqatunas sohba, wal khayru fil jamiyya.

Thank Allah we went and came back safe and sound. We came with mercy, with love, and with blessings Inshallah. This is the wisdom of Allah (JJ), we do not feel like strangers wherever we go. So we do not feel hardship or unfamiliarity when we go somewhere else.

Why? Becasue as the saying goes “Muslims are brothers”. Those there and here, we are all brothers and sister. It does not matter what their color or type is, this familiarity1 and affection is the same. It exists. So no unfamiliarity or discomforting things can be seen, because when you are with Allah everywhere in the world is the same.

Just as we stand in prayer here, it is the same when we stand in Cyprus, London, Ceylon, or Indonesia. Because the same feeling and the same manifestation2 descends, there is no unfamiliarity and you do not feel yourself to be far away.

Who feels far away? People who are far from Allah feel like in foreign land and experience hardship wherever they go, but it is the same wherever they are for people who are with Allah, Allah willing. Thank Allah it is good that we clarified this today.

Always be together with Allah. Never be apart for a second. You feel at home wherever you are in the world once you are with Allah with familiarity, affection, and love. This is a beautiful thing. Inshallah all of us have this feeling. May Allah be content with you.

Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq. Al-Fatiha.

159.THE HAJJ WORSHIP Tuesday, September 6, 2016

Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh, Auzu Billahi Minashaytanir Rajeem. Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, Wassalatu Wassalamu ala Rasulina Muhammadin Sayyidul Awwalin wal Akhirin, Madad Ya Rasulallah, Madad Ya As’habi RasuLillah, Madad Ya Mashayikhina, Sheykh Abdullah Daghestani, Sheykh Nazim al-Haqqani. Dastur. Tariqatunas sohba, wal khayru fil jamiyya.

Thank Allah we have reached the month of Zilhijja. These are holy months: Ashhurul Hurum. So these are forbidden months such that Arabs would not fight during the Hajj season. However, if attacked there is permission for war to respond in return.

The honor of these months is due to the Hajj, because the Hajj is a great worship and it is one of the conditions of Islam. Doing it is not for every Muslim, but obligatory for those who are in a good financial situation, are in good health, and can go and come back safely. However, it is not obligatory on people who do not have money. Because it is once in a lifetime, one has to be comfortable during those months. This is why Allah forbid fighting for Muslims, so they can spend these months in safety, but there is also permission when necessary.

While most people say, “I will do it and take care of it later,” their life passes by and they are unable to do it. If there is intention for it, Allah would truely give according to their intention, because people cannot go to Hajj even if they want to in later years. Because there is too much demand for Hajj, the government there somehow cannot accept everybody. Allah accepts it like it was performed. But those who have the opportunity and do not do it are counted as having left the obligatory1. There is a punishment for leaving the oblig
