Suhbah 2016: Maulana Shaykh Mehmet Adil ar-Rabbani (25/25)
nd very confused. And you know, they need some direction. SM: They have something like selfishness.

Q: The leaders you mean the politicians? SM: All people also.

Q: The common people..? SM: Even street, you see they throw garbage. Others say "He throw, I throw also. Why I will clean? He is doing this. He make this wrong thing, I must do same." Same like this. So what Allāh said? "Kamā takūnū, yuwallá ‘alaykum". How you are, Allāh send you somebody like you. They are not coming from another country, not from Moon or from Mars. They are coming... They are these people's children. Unfortunately, this is what they must. They have many madrasah, many ‘ulamā’, many things but this selfishness is real. Maybe I don't know, if you recognize, but it is this they have.

Q: Ignorance and selfishness. So they will just need to suffer till they learn? SM: It must be. But no hopeless. Must be first to teach these ‘ulamā’, teachers and others to bring good people.

Q: Please come to Pakistan and teach them something. You promised 2018. Now we are waiting for you to come and teach and bring some positive energy to our country. We very much need it. SM: Ma shā’a Llāh we have many murīd in Pakistan. They are good people but they must learn this, to control ego, not to follow their ego.

Q: Please pray for us and all the good people in Pakistan who are suffering. There are also good people and of course, everywhere. There is a prophecy about ghazwahi Hind, that the Mahdī will only come after Hind and Sind has been converted to Islām. Do you see this happening? This... And what does it mean, ghazwahi Hind? SM: Now what they are saying many times can be changed or can be say it another way. So we don't know how it will be this because Allāh knows. But in shā’a Llāh Mahdī ‘alayhi ssalām, the most what happening now in the world, Prophet (saw), harju marj. Is everybody coming. Now everybody know what happened. It is - look like time for Mahdī ‘alayhi s-salām to come. But we don't know how many years.

Q: Did Shaykh Nāẓim say that Musharraf is one of, one of the generals in Mahdī's army and that he has a role in the future to unite India and Pakistan? And do you see that maybe he still has a role? Or did he have a chance and he messed up the chance? SM: Sometimes it is like this, messed up chance. Because we know many people, Mawlānā he - they were very small politician and he said something to them. And then

they are not listening, so they miss their chance. I don't know maybe for Musharraf same.

Q: You're not sure whether...? SM: Because I wasn't here at that time when Mawlānā meet him here. And what happened, it's... In 2001 he was in Pakistan. We met President. He was Tar[ar] he is ‘ālim I think, he has beard. In Karachi. And we must, they were saying maybe we can meet Musharraf in Islamabad. But that time he had something.

Q: Some other meetings. SM: Other meeting. So he didn't meet. For this karāmah of Mawlānā, he bring him and to his.

Q: Then he came himself in 2004, I think or 2003 or later? SM: No, it was... He came here at ...

Q: After he was... SM: Yes, 2010 or 11 or something like this.

Q: Yes, he was removed. In that meeting Mawlānā also gave him some advice which perhaps he didn't understand correctly. Because he perhaps didn't follow it correctly. SM: I think. Many times people not taking. After they're saying Shaykh, he was saying this and remember. But after finishing.

Q: So do you have any advice for him, for Musharraf? Is there any way that he can regain the spiritual favour and support? Is there something he can do to make amends? SM: Put his intention to be good and to make really to clean corruption, not looking this is my friend, this is my nephew. Don't say anything. For everybody, it must be same. Maybe in shā’a Llāh if intention like this Allāh. by du‘ā’ of these people, in shā’a Llāh he can be also. But he must put his intention to do this.

Q: To just be sincerely only looking for the country and not his own...? SM: Yes. Because really since 15 years I didn't go. I hear it has become 100 times worse than before when we were before 15 years ago in Pakistan.

Q: Of course. When he was there, it was still stable. It was still good. Now the corruption... SM: Even electricity. They said no electricity.

Q: Yes. And we've taken so many loans and everything. We've given in mortgage. And

the country's been completely destroyed from the inside, you know? But now in Pakistan they have the CPEC with China. And they're talking about the route. And they're saying that maybe the CPEC will bring prosperity. And what do you feel about Chinese influence in world politics right now? And Putin and Russia and this whole situation? SM: This is not important. Important to be - if your barakah with ḥalāl, not with ḥarām. You can do with Chinese, with Jewish, with Russia, with everybody you can do work. But you must be honest and to be good for your people, not for your pocket only.

Q: But how do we ensure that our politicians and our leaders are doing ḥalāl and are not doing corruption? SM: This is from what happen in your country, it is appear. But it is not difficult to say.

Q: So the people should just rise up and demand? SM: No, no. People they must... Mawlānā was saying don't go in street. If you want to go, go mosque, make du‘ā’. First make yourself also to be good people. Allāh send good people for you.

Q: In shā’a Llāh. Thank you. Thank you. SM: Thank you. Allāh in shā’a Llāh give these people, good people also, to give who are in... Allāh open forgiveness door until sun rising from West. So in shā’a Llāh it is open. Who doing this and he want to make, ask forgiveness from Allāh, Allāh forgive him. In shā’a Llāh all politicians Allāh give them inspiration to make tawbah and to make istighfār. And for people also, to be in right way.

Allāh send us good people and barakah and good life in shā’a Llāh. Fātiḥah.

234.KNOW YOUR LIMIT Wednesday, December 14, 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 Prophet (saw) says: "Raḥima Llāhu-mra’an ‘arifa ḥaddahu wa waqafa ‘indahu" "May Allāh (jj) look at those people with compassion." Who is he talking about? "Someone, who knows his limits and stops there, may Allāh (jj) have mercy on him" says the Prophet (saw).

Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla created all kinds of people. Like their faces, He (jj) gave everyone a special talent, a special knowledge, an inclination to some things. Our Prophet (sas) said to help people to know their limits and not desire much. Desire brings harm. In addition people, who don't know their limits are arrogant. Now everybody thinks they know everything. "Same as others, I can also be this or that" they say. Nobody listens to anyone, they don't know their limits. They claim. When they claim, and can't do, they are disgraced. They lose their own specialty. People say you can't work with someone, who doesn't know his limits.

So we should know our limits. That is another virtue. You have to learn what it is, what is our limit. Don't feel confident and claim you know everything when you don't actually know. Be humble. Claim what you know. If you don't know, say "I don't know". It is a good quality because people think it is shameful not to know. That's why you see all around the world everybody is competing with each other. On every occasion they try to come to the forefront.

Our Prophet's (saw) words are useful, full of wisdom, beautiful. Whoever follows him (saw) finds peace, won't be disgraced. You know your limits here in worldly matters and also you know your limits in religious, other worldly matters. If you don't know your limits in worldly matters, you'll be disgraced. But for hereafter if you don't know your limits and see yourself very big and mislead people, then you'll have a difficult time.

May Allāh (jj) let us follow the way that our Prophet (saw) showed. Whoever follows that way, is on the most beautiful way. Whoever follows, finds peace here and hereafter. Prophet (saw) saying ḥadīth "Raḥima Llāhu-mra’an ‘arifa ḥaddahu wa waqafa ‘indahu." What meaning? This meaning Allāh bless this one who knows his limit and stop in that

limit. It is important ḥadīth because this giving advice for people to be respected. Because many people nowadays, all people, they are not knowing their limit or other limit also. No limit now for human being. They are doing everything - after complaining.

The limit Allāh give for each person special thing can he do. There is limit for everybody. For each one different limit. For small children, their limit you know. For more elder and elder coming each one different. Some of them can be doctor, some be shepherd, farmer. They can be driver. But who they're trying, everybody now they want to be the top. But Allāh He give you... Maybe He give you mind to be clever for doing work. For study, you cannot. Your limit until that limit. No, people they said... This is also one part from wrong way people. They call mu‘tazilah. And these people now, all the people look like mu‘tazilah. They said Allāh give everybody same mind. This mu‘tazilah, it is also like in communism. No, Allāh He said each... He is able to make everybody same. But His wisdom must be like this. You cannot object for what Allāh done. Cannot even answer why He's done this. He done this and He give solution also by Prophet (saw).

They're saying for everything there is limit for everybody. If everybody accept the limit and... To respect and accept, it will be good for him, for other also. This for dunyā. For ākhirah it's more important. Maybe dunyā somebody by buying university diploma, what paper, certificate, he can be engineer, he can be anything. But maybe he is be not successful. But it's ok. People they are nowadays, they are not looking so much. But for ākhirah, it is more important. This is the most important point Prophet (saw) saying. You must be humble and not say "I am this, I am... People must follow me and I am the best one." No. There is limit.

And when this special for spiritual thing, Allāh give each one something maybe he can bring people, 50 people, 20 people. 10 people it's also very good. This limit also Allāh bless. But to be in right way, way of Prophet (saw), no problem. But sometimes people they like making to more success for people. To bring more people, they are saying out of limit of Prophet (saw). So this is problem for them it will be for ākhirah.

So, in shā’a Llāh, Allāh keep us in way of Prophet (saw) to let us to know our limit, not following ego. Ego, it is very proud, very big. It says "There is no bigger than you. Your limit is so big. You can do anything". No. There is limit for everything. Allāh save us from our bad ego, in shā’a Llāh.

Wa min Allāhi t-tawfīq. Al-Fātiḥah.

235.THE WAY OF MERCY Thursday, December 15, 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.

Beautiful attributes are in Islām, in ṭarīqah. Ṭarīqah means to do what the Prophet (saw) says, to continue in his (saw) way. Our Prophet (saw) was sent as a mercy to the worlds. He (saw) taught this mercy, blessing to the companions. He (saw) taught people. When you hear it, you know that our Prophet's (saw) religion is based on mercy. Everybody knows. That's why Allāh's (jj) mercy is enough for everyone. Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla doesn't oppress anyone. He (jj) doesn't accept oppression.

He (jj) sent all the prophets (as). Our Prophet (saw) is the last one, he (saw) is the greatest. "I sent him (saw) as a mercy to all the worlds."(21:107) "I didn't send him (saw) with oppression." People oppress themselves. He (jj) showed you the right way. If you do evil -because Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla doesn't oppress and to show that He (jj) doesn't oppress and that Allāh (jj) is Almighty - on the Day of Judgement, their own organs will bear witness against them. Their skin, hands, feet, nose from everywhere - Allāh (jj) will give them a language and they will speak. "You did evil, you betrayed, you oppressed, you committed sin." The person will be puzzled. "How can you bear witness against me? I was with you." They'll say, "Allāh (awj) gave us a tongue not to lie. You are a liar. You oppressed yourself. You ran away from Allāh's mercy. You punished yourself."

Allāh (jj) doesn't oppress anyone. He doesn't accept oppression. Muslims also don't accept oppression, they are merciful to animals, plants, everything around them. They are merciful as is his (saw) way. People, who aren't on this way, they do all sorts of oppression. The human being is the most cruel creature. Islām doesn't accept oppression, forbids oppression, orders mercy. Others aren't like that. If there is a crime - that person oppresses himself. He will be punished for that. Islām has no fault. Mercy is for weak, poor, needy ones.

To show Allāh's way is the biggest mercy. Not to take others' rights is also mercy. These are orders in our ṭarīqah, religion. We have to obey. With this mercy people find peace - they are peaceful. Nobody says "bad" for merciful people. Even if they say, it will have no affect on them. Because if you know yourself, other people's curse won't affect you. Allāh (jj) knows. The person also knows himself and what he has done. So we have to be merciful all the time, in shā’a Llāh.

Our way - Prophet (saw) he is teaching the best way for us. And he is... Allāh sent him mercy for whole universe. First, the most attribute for Prophet (saw) to be mercy for everybody, for all people. And he teach them to be mercy. Because Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla sent him mercy for all human being, for jinn, for human being, for angels, for everything, for whole creation. So he is showing the way of mercy. Because Allāh He is not oppressor. Showing a way of Lord Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla. And it is the biggest mercy for human being, for creatures. If not showing, this is curse. But he is showing and telling people, "Come to this way for Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla mercy door, mercy, mercy place, paradise."

All this for mercy for people. Because Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla, He is able to put everybody in His mercy but who running away from His mercy. But this fault for, who are running from mercy of Allāh. And Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla will ask these people who are, they don't want mercy and they are oppressors, he will be asked his every part of his body - like hand, like skin, like eyes. And each one they will be saying: "This man doing this, done that. And he done this wrong thing. And he was going for bad place." All by his body telling. And he will ask "How you are saying this and you are same with me?" They said, "Allāh He make us to speak, to say right thing. Because you are liar and you take us to all these bad places, doing bad things. So we are obliged to be saying truth." So.

But Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla never be oppress. And His mercy for everybody. But who are not doing good thing, they are making bad for themself. No blame for Prophet, no blame for others. And Prophet (saw) he was the most merciful for trying his best to see people this good way. He was suffering even from his family, those around him. First thing he tried to teach them about religion and there was Abū Lahab coming, he make trouble and destroyed this meeting. And nobody come. And after for his tribe, after for people. And who are they were merciful, they are coming liking this. And mercy making peace in heart of people and satisfaction. Who don't have this, every time he's not happy. Nothing can make him happy.

Merciful, it is giving good life for human being. If you make wrong thing for people, for anything, you're not getting better, you're getting worse.

This is teaching of Prophet (saw) and way of Islām and ṭarīqah, not ordering any wrong thing. Only ordering the most important thing, to be merciful. Others who are not in this religion, all religions it must be like this. But they destroyed their religion and not looking at all for mercy. They're doing everything. They make excuse for what they have done - "We do this because that it was like this." But no, because they don't have mercy. They don't have fear of Allāh. Allāh give us to be merciful, to not be oppress to anybody, in shā’a Llāh.

Wa min Allāhi t-tawfīq. Al-Fātiḥah.

236.ḤUSNU L-KHULUQ Friday, December 16, 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.

Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla wants people to have the best attributes. That's why He (jj) created our Prophet (sas) at the highest station. Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla - you can't think of His (jj) essence. You shouldn't think of His essence. According to the belief of Ahlu s-Sunnah wa l-Jamā‘ah nobody knows Allāh (jj) except Himself. Nobody, knows Him (jj) - only Himself. Even our Prophet (sas) has a limit. He (saw) doesn't know beyond that. This is the belief of Ahlu sSunnah wa l-Jamā‘ah. People, who don't have that belief have gone astray. They have small minds. Allāh (jj) doesn't need time and space. Allāh (jj) is "walā yuḥīṭūna" (20:110), there is no limit to Allāh (awj). Thinking about Him (jj) is being mindless. That's why Ahlu s-Sunnah wa l-Jamā‘ah don't think about Allāh (awj).

He has attributes, they look at those attributes. He has some attributes special to Him. He (jj) is Subḥān, only Allāh is Subḥān. Sulṭān, there might be a sulṭān or some sulṭāns. Our Prophet (saw) is merciful. Khallāq is the Creator, which is only for Allāh (awj). You can't say creator for anyone else. Now people say it without knowing but if they say it intentionally, then it is dangerous. But beautiful attributes, Allāh's attributes, beautiful names, among them are attributes that He (jj) gives some of His (jj) attributes to people. What are they? Best example is our Prophet (saw). "Wa-innaka la‘alá khuluqin ‘aẓīm." (68:4) "Indeed you are of a great moral character". "I created you with the best of manners, with the adab." People, who want to learn good manners, beautiful, good living, should do what he (saw) did, as much as they can. If you can do all, shukur to Allāh (awj).

Awliyā’u Llāh follow his (saw) footsteps. They physically and spiritually copy his (saw) actions down to the last detail. You may do what he (saw) does physically but inside you may fool people, deceive people. It is also possible, there is also like that. Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla tells us to do both what our Prophet (saw) did and have his (saw) good character, it means inwardly, morally. Doing good, not deceiving anyone, not oppressing anyone, not harming any creature, this is from the good manners of our Prophet (saw). In the Prophet's (saw) ḥadīth "Where does good manner come from? good manners comes from Allāh (jj) Himself." This is the ḥadīth we read in the khuṭbah. So Allāh's (jj) attribute is also good manners. Who has bad manners? The opposite, shayṭān. Shayṭān has all the

bad manners. It is shameless, dirty, devious, dishonored. Whoever follows it has the same attributes. Whoever copies it, is like it. He can't be a good person.

Allāh (awj) says "Be a good one" be like the Prophet (saw). With the beautiful attributes that Allāh gives he becomes like him in his attributes. His (jj) beautiful attributes: Mercy, Generosity, Beauty, all good manners. Beautiful attributes are Allāh's. Who loves Allāh (jj) should love them too. They should have those actions, those attributes. Badness isn't good, Allāh (jj) doesn't like it. "al-khubth wa l-khabā’ith" he says. Allāh (jj) doesn't like dirt, evil. shayṭān likes these. What Islām teaches us, the Prophet (saw) teaches us, are the highest morals. This is the best civilisation.

Sensitive people, to whom Allāh (jj) gave the ability to sense beauty, can see this. When you go to a maqam - it is Allāh's wisdom that in Islamic countries Muslims should actually care for the beauty, the cleanliness. They should be organized, arranged. But Muslims don't look after them. When you go to a Muslim country and enter a maqam and visit an Awliyā’u Llāh, Allāh (awj) makes you forget everything else around you. That is one of the wisdoms of Allāh (awj). Why? Because even if the place is dirty and in bad condition, still Allāh's (jj) name is mentioned there, our Prophet's (saw) name is mentioned, his (saw) ḥadīth is read there. It is a blessing for people there.

When you go in the opposite direction, even to the richest places in the world, they are trying for hundreds of years. Really you look everything is organized, beautiful. But, Allāh (jj) knows why, you feel distress. Darkness comes on you. People, who are super sensitive may sense strange smells. You'll be distressed if you are on the way of Allāh (jj), you won't like it there. Why? Because they rebel against Allāh (jj). They don't follow the good manners ordered by Allāh. Whatever shayṭān orders they do it there. That's why you can't find peace there. If you go for money, you can only get money, nothing else. But shukur to Allāh (jj) recently dargahs have been made there. Those dargahs, mosques, are like oases in the desert. When you go there, your soul finds peace. Otherwise people would die of distress.

May Allāh (jj) keep us with this beauty in shā’a Llāh. May Allāh's beautiful attributes be on us in shā’a Llāh.

We are thanking Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla. He create us from ummati Muḥammad, Prophet (saw). Because he is the one, who [re]presents Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla. Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla, He is the Creator. Nothing can be example for Him. Non-Muslim people, since beginning, they are trying to imagine. Some of them making picture, some of them making statue. They're saying this is God. And some of them, they are more they are thinking they are clever. They said He has son also, wife also. This nonsense. Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla, He is ... you cannot imagine. This is our belief. And He... I don't know if my

English, what I say it is right. But astaghfiru Llāh for this. He didn't show or tell anybody even Prophet (saw). Prophet (saw) he is the highest, he is the one he came to sidratu l- muntahá to see Him or to know His being.

What is Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla you cannot imagine. And it is forbidden in our belief to think about His, for His dhāt (essence). For His self we cannot think. Only no imagine for His self, for Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla. Only we looking for His attribute. It's allowed to us to look. Because to think about, it is our mind, or whole universe, if it had mind, cannot be reach what His... no limit for Him. So these people, they are thinking they are clever, and they're making son, wife. Astaghfiru Llāh. Just cheating people. And I think they are knowing but for benefit for shayṭān, he ride on them. And they are accepting this. Cannot be. No need to speak about this even.

And His attribute, many of His attributes we can see it. He is Creator, one of His attributes. He create. If you only think about this, it's enough to know how He is great. This universe - until now they are making a new telescope. They are going for sky, for space and making it to know how much bigger this universe. And it is your... There is no number that can count this. This it is nothing for Allāh's ability. He's Muqtadir, Qādir Muqtadir. He's Creator. This one of His attributes. This is special for Him. You cannot say “he is creator”. Many people by ignorance they say this man he is creator ya‘nī they're meaning he is making a new thing. No, it's only for Lord Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla, His attribute. But there is attribute for people also - like mercy. Prophet (saw) mercy, mū’min's mercy, mercy for people. Generosity, also for Prophet (saw). He is most generous one in whole... from 'Ādam ‘alayhi s-salām until now. For power, for many things we...

Allāh attributes He has, people also they can have it. And they must have it because Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla showing the highest thing, Prophet (saw) and his life example for this. Good behaviour. And Allāh praise him in Qur’ān saying "Wa-innaka la‘alá khuluqin ‘aẓīm" (68:4) So mū’min must follow Prophet (saw). Many people they can say "How we can follow Prophet (saw)?" No, there is many, many Awliyā’u Llāh, mū’min, Muslim they are looking for what Prophet (saw) done and they're doing exactly like him. This to be following order of Allāh but it is need also to be good behave also, not only outside appearance. Maybe there is outside appearance, but inside not good. It is not good. Prophet (saw) he was first from inside and from outside. He, all good things in him. So Awliyā’u Llāh who following Prophet (saw), they are following this. Because ḥadīth also Prophet (saw), ḥusnu l-khuluq, he is all good behaviour is Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla, in Allāh.

So He is... No bad action from Allāh. Bad action from where? From shayṭān. Only coming from shayṭān the dirtiness, the liar... Every bad thing can do - attribute of shayṭān. And who following shayṭān, they are also doing bad things, not following adab or following

Prophet (saw). And this giving, for who doing this, even in this world hatred. People not like these people. But maybe they are not speaking from afraid from them. But really they are not liking this. And it is bad for whole area where these people living. Allāh curse them and make who accept them also to be like them.

So we must follow Prophet (saw) and to be good behaved, in shā’a Llāh. Allāh help us and help Muslim. Because many Muslim, they are not following this belief - Belief of Prophet (saw) for to be merciful, to be easy for people. And Prophet (saw) every time saying "Be good for people." And there is ḥadīth man shaqqa ‘alá ummati Allāhumma ashqiq ‘alayh meaning, it is by aw kamā qāl, This ḥadīth Prophet (saw) saying "O my Lord, make it hard for people, they are making hard for my ummah." Be easy with ummat-i Prophet (saw). Don't make by your thinking, you will be punished, you will be in bad. You are not doing good. No. All time you must show them mercy. This is what Prophet (saw) and this is good tiding for us. Not to listen to people who are following shayṭān and his army. Allāh help us.

Wa min Allāhi t-tawfīq. Al-Fātiḥah.

237.THE MEANING OF LIFE Saturday, December 17, 2017.

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 Prophet is ordering not to break the ties with the people who loved your father after he is gone. Our Prophet is saying to care about them because there shouldn't be distance between Muslims, good people. Continuity is valued. Our Prophet is saying rather than doing goodness, worshipping a lot and then stopping, it is better to do less but continue with it. And it is the same for everything. We have to keep good relations with good people, after our father and mother, with friends and relatives - we have to make them last. We have to care about them. We have to make them happy.

And today one lady from the old followers of Mawlānā passed away. She had served Mawlānā a lot. He always visited her. We ate and drank at her house. Shaykh Bahauddin, Ḥājjah Rukiye and the family went to the funeral. We stayed here to be with the guests and did janāzah here. But shukr to Allāh, it is a grant for the visitors to have the thawāb (reward). It is a big thawāb to make janāzah prayer for a pious person. It is a very big goodness. Even in her absence, the prayer made in her name will reach her with the permission of Allāh. Therefore, it became a thawāb for us.

Because indeed Mawlānā had tough times in Cyprus. He suffered and was oppressed a lot. There were very few people, and this lady was one of them, who loved him. She used to make dhikr every week. Mawlānā would join her dhikr lately. Therefore, she was a perfect lady. We are blessed to have the big thawāb of making this prayer behind her, shukr to Allāh. Allāh is giving chances to people from every side so that it is easy to get thawāb. Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla is making it easy for doing goodness.

May Allāh shower her with mercy, in shā’a Llāh. May we reach such a maqām as her's, in shā’a Llāh. We love Allāh and the Prophet. May they love us too, in shā’a Llāh. This lady was such a person. She was a person who was loved by Allāh, the Prophet and her Awliyā’. May Allāh grant it to all of us. This is what we should get in this world.

There was a boy from Korea the other day, he asked the meaning of life. He kept asking it. We said the meaning of life is being prepared for ākhirah. Otherwise, there is no meaning in this life. Animals are eating and drinking in same way. There is no meaning

of life in doing this. The meaning of life is getting prepared for ākhirah like this lady and to achieve the ākhirah.

Today we pray janāzah for a lady. And she is what Prophet (saw) saying in ḥadīth: continue to be with people who love your father or mother, good people. Don't cut this relationship. And this lady she was really from the oldest murīds of Mawlānā Shaykh. And old time it was not easy, like the last years of Cyprus because they were all against Mawlānā and not respect him or follow him. So this was lady and her husband, her children, grandchildren, all helping and following Mawlānā. And many times Mawlānā he was going to her house for dhikr, inviting for dinner, for everything. She was perfect mā shā’a Llāh. Perfect to have love of Prophet, love of Allāh, love of mashāyikh. We love them but if they love us, this is perfect thing. So we are a witness Mawlānā was loving her. And when Mawlānā loving her, the Prophet and Allāh also, they are happy with her. This is important thing.

Because before some days one boy coming from Far East, from Korea, and asking for meaning of life. This is meaning of life, to be have this love from Allāh, from Prophet, from mashāyikh, from good people. If you don't have this, your life, it's just like animal or other thing. It is not important. If you have this, it is real happiness. And we wish for everybody to be like her because she whole life serving for Allāh, for her family. And even she come more than 80 years, she become even free from every responsibility in front of Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla. Al-ḥamdu liLlāh she is... We get blessed.

I couldn't go to funeral because we must be here with you, but Shaykh Bahauddin, Ḥājjah Rukiye and others, they went. And we get this blessed, we pray on her here, for her janāzah we pray here. It's acceptable. And to pray for, after good people, scholars or awliyā’u Llāh or even like this lady mu’minah, Allāh reward us big reward. So al-ḥamdu liLlāh even when she died, we had this bless from Allāh by her janāzah even. Allāh give her to... We meet her in shā’a Llāh in jannah all together, in shā’a Llāh.

Wa min Allāhi t-tawfīq. Al-Fātiḥah.

238.DO NOT FALL FOR SHAITAN’S TRAP Sunday, December 18, 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.

Authu Billahi Minash-shaitanir Rajim. Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim.

ا َّّلل´ ´ل ´ع َّل ˚ك ˚م ت˚ ˚ر ´ح ˚مو ´ن َ واتَّق˚وا

´ن أ´ ´خ ´و ˚ي ˚ك ˚م ص ¸ل ˚حوا ´ب ˚ي

¸إنَّ ´ما ا ˚ل ˚م ˚ؤ ¸من˚و ´ن إ¸ ˚خ ´وة˚ ف´أ´

“Innamal mu’minoona ikhwatun fa’aslihu bayna akhawaikum, wattaqullaha la’allakum turhamoon.” (Sura Hujurat:10)

The Holy Verse says: “Believers are brothers. Fix the situation between them and do not let division in between.” This is the command of Allah and it is an advice for Muslims. When Muslims are one, of course they become strong, but Shaitan and his soldiers do not want this. They certainly want everybody to be enemies with each other. And Muslims are fooled: instead of dealing with the enemy they deal with people who are Muslim like themselves. It is the same everywhere. Unfortunately the whole world of Islam is like this.

The Ottomans not only gathered Muslims but 72 different nations under one state. They would treat them all with justice and they were all happy. There, Shaitan did not like this. First, he slowly instigated the non-Muslims and made them rebel against the state. That was not enough. Then he dispersed the Muslims saying, “You are Arab, you are Ajam, you are this and you are that.” That was not enough. Now he is causing people to be against each other in every Muslim country.

As we said, whatever the Muslim does, he should be given advice. This is Allah’s command. You cannot reach anywhere by fighting him. You certainly need to make up between them with goodness. It is also a great sin to be with other people, unbelievers, against Islam. They will answer for it in front of Allah. They will be lowly in the world and will face punishment in the hereafter.

The hereafter is what is important. It is not good to sell yourself for the worldly, to satisfy your ego, for something worth two-penny. Shaitan is attacking from every side now. He has brought out all his force because it is End Times, and is attacking Islam with all his

might. Shaitan is with them but he does not know Allah Azza wa Jalla is with us. Allah is the victorious. It is Allah’s promise.

Now Shaitan has lots of toys. There was the television, there was the telephone, now there is something worse. They are making up things from nothing every day. Suddenly you find out this one cursed me and that one cursed you. Do not pay attention to these. Let the one who curses to curse. They will be sorry when they find out the truth. Therefore there is no need to put rancor or a grudge inside yourself based on “This one said this to me and that one said that to me”. It works if you do not pay attention to it.

Do not say, “This one said this on the internet and that one said that.” Do not look and do not give news to others as, “This man said such to you.” When you do this, Shaitan will be sad and he will be grieved. Otherwise, just as an animal or an insect gets caught in a trap, you would be falling in his trap and in that situation. Do not lower yourself to that level. You be higher than that!

They place poison in the trap and the mouse dies, the cockroach dies, and the fly dies. They are pests that fall for this trap. Humans should not fall for such things and not pay attention to these things. Whatever they say, do not fall for it. May Allah give us all, especially Muslims, sense, mind, and good thinking. May Allah be our helper. May Islam emerge victorious. May the infidel lose, and may the traitors lose with them. May Allah make them grieved and desolate Inshallah.

Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq. Al-Fatiha.

239.TAKE PRECAUTION FIRST THEN TRUST Monday, December 19, 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.

Anything can happen in this world. Do not think everything will go on the same. Everything happens. Things a person cannot even think of occur. This is a test. It is a test and people need to trust in Allah and live that way.

You need to trust but you also need to use your head. Our Holy Prophet (SAW) said, “A’qilha wa tawakkal.” Meaning tie your camel first, then trust in Allah. For if you let it free and leave everything out in the open then say, “I trusted, but they came and hit me, robbed me,” it is like saying, “I trusted in Allah and it is not my fault!”

No, you need to take care of work and learn the beautiful details. When dealing with people you need to deal nicely and get along well. You need to understand who is good and who is bad amongst people. Accordingly, you would not act based on assumptions, but you need to be careful so you do not get harmed and others do not get harmed.

Everybody has an ego. We need to be careful. Because if you are not careful, other people can take advantage of this opportunity, follow their ego, and do evil. When you are aware and prevent that thing, it would be beneficial for yourself and others. And they would not attempt such a thing and commit a sin. Everybody would know their boundaries and everybody would know their rights.

This is the problem. People need to be careful now. People sometimes surrender themselves like sheep and when something happens they start crying, “I did this and I did that.” Therefore, let us be careful and protect our rights and the rights of others too Inshallah.

Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq. Al-Fatiha.

240.TRY TO CHANGE YOUR EGO’S WAY Tuesday, December 20, 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 says

طفل ا لنفسن مذمومة

regarding the human ego. A person must train oneself. When

one does not train it, the ego is not liked just as a little spoiled child is not liked. It would be “Tiflun nafsil mathmumah”, decried, meaning something not liked.

People need to tame their ego. Most people see themselves in the mirror of a giant. You see that when normal people start talking they explain, “I am this and I am that. I can do this and I can do that.” This is an unliked thing and that which further spoils the ego.

Everybody should know their condition and their place. They should not raise themselves to the skies in the smallest thing. Because everybody else sees the condition as it is. When a person lifts off by themselves, then they fall into a funny situation. They would be spoiling their ego and would be useless in the sight of Allah. Even if not disgraced, the person becomes a laughing stock amongst people.

Therefore, never make concessions to your ego. Do not see the fault in anybody. See the fault in yourself. People of today find the fault in someone else in every action they take, in everything. There is nobody better than themselves and the fault is always with someone else!

Try to change your ego’s way a little. Do not leave your ego as a child, and what’s more a naughty child. People would not like you if it is like a naughty and spoiled child. They would say, “Stay away!” and send you off. Be careful if you have such a condition. Later do not say, “Why are people doing this to me? Why don’t they like me?” May Allah keep us safe. May Allah help us Inshallah.

Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq. Al-Fatiha.

241.IT IS A FAULT TO SAY AND NOT DO Wednesday, December 21, 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.

Allah Azza wa Jalla states: Authu Billahi Minash-shaitanir Rajim. Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim.

ت´ ˚ف ´عل˚و ´ن ما ´ل

أ´ ˚ن ت´ق˚ول˚وا ع ˚ند´ ا َّّلل¸

˚قتًا م

كب˚ ´ر

“Ya ayyuhallathina aamanu lima taqooluna mala taf‟aloon. Kabura maqtan „indallahi an taquloo mala taf‟aloon.” (Sura Saff:2-3)

“O you who have believed! Why do you say what you do not do?” He says. In the sight of Allah it is a great sin or a great fault to say and not do. This is something Allah does not like. He says, “Say what you will be doing. Otherwise if you say it try to do it.” It is not acceptable or good in the sight of Allah to only talk empty words and not do anything.

It is not a good action because it makes people get used to not doing anything. Therefore, if something is to be done or if you say something, you need to do it. It is also unacceptable to give advice to others but not do it yourself. Allah Azza wa Jalla says this in the Koran.

Most people talk and talk but do not act. Or they give hope, say something and give a promise to people, but do not do it. It does not go for nothing and Allah will question it. If you are unable to do it you do not need to say it, but if you say it you have to do it. Do not say it if you cannot do it. You are being trusted and you are turning the trust into a disappointment and aggrieving people. Therefore, do it if something is to be done and you give a promise. If you are to speak, stand behind it like a man. Stand behind your word and if you will not be able to do it then do not do it.

Sometimes people say they will do a thing, they work at it, and if they cannot do it they apologize for it and say “I could not do it.” However, directly scattering promises around and later not doing it is not good next to people and unacceptable next to Allah. May Allah forgive us all Inshallah. May He make us people who keep their promise Inshallah.

Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq. Al-Fatiha.

242.WHAT IS IMPORTANT IS THE MAWLID DAY Thursday, December 22, 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.

Let us not forget we are in the month of the birth of our Holy Prophet (SAW). Rabiul Awwal is the month of the mawlid of our Holy Prophet (SAW). The Mawlid is on the day he was born, the 12th day of the month. Therefore, the whole month is blessed and spent honoring our Prophet (SAW).

I see that they came up with a thing called “Sacred Birth Week” in the month of April and they attached all the emphasis there. Yet no importance is given to this month [of Rabiul Awwal] and I do not know if anything was assigned for the 12th day. However, Shaykh Mawlana (QS) had pointed it out and did not like the sacred birth [program] of April because it is a dissension. At first they were saying, “We are doing both,” but we see that no respect or care is given at all for the Mawlid day of Rabiul Awwal.

Anyway all of Allah’s sacred and blessed days were made according to the lunar year. The birth of our Holy Prophet (SAW) is celebrated in Rabiul Awwal. The good done during this month is more blessed and its rewards are more. Our Holy Prophet (SAW) says, “Whoever makes a salawat on me, Allah gives the person ten times more, forgives the person’s sins, and raises the person ten levels.” Therefore, there will be more rewards if you say, “We are doing the good deeds during this month in honor of our Holy Prophet (SAW), out of consideration for him, and out of consideration for the month of Mawlid.”

There is always rewards, but there are more rewards during certain times and certain days. Therefore, let us not miss these days. What can you say to the one who came up with that? May Allah guide him and give him sense and mind. Because they say, “Both work,” but it does not work. They forgot the real, true one and are attaching more value to the day and week that has no standing. Advertisements, conferences, and what not everywhere. They did some things and made it gain a standing, but the thing Allah gives no standing is worthless. What is important is the Mawlid day Inshallah.

May its blessing be upon us. May the blessing of this month be upon us. For its sake, may Allah keep this country safe and may Islam be victorious. May Allah make the dajjals, hypocrites, and disbelievers grieved and desolate out of consideration of our Holy Prophet (SAW). May His religion be victorious over all kufr and batil Inshallah.

Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq. Al-Fatiha.

243.A MUSLIM HAS MANNERS Friday, December 23, 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) states, “Humans have 360 organs. You need to give alms for them every day.” The companions asked, “We don’t have money. What are we to do?” Our Holy Prophet (SAW) uttered: “An act of kindness is also charity, and an act of sunnah is charity too.”

What is meant by sunnah is doing good and helping people. Even removing a stone from the road is charity. Removing thorn is charity. These are charities, the charities of these organs. It is being grateful to Allah and it is a means for them staying healthy. Leave them aside, the ikhwan, especially people of tariqa, need to do this. They should not harm people either. Wherever they arrive, everywhere, they should not disturb the people around and need to help people passing by the road.

We also see that, as it happened yesterday, they leave their cars in front of the dargah or the mosque. How will people pass? What will they do? Nobody cares. Then a man there will say a curse word or swear and he will have sinned. Who is responsible for this? That person.

Our Holy Prophet (SAW) says, “Remove the stone from the road so it will not harm people.” And you go ahead and harm people, and claim to be a person of tariqa while leaving it there. Later people yell and swear violently in front of the mosque or where he left the car. This way it causes disturbance and uneasiness. On top of that, you are causing the man to sin. That sin also goes to the person who causes it.

When you do something, if you have not done it right and it causes a person to swear, then both of you have sinned. Therefore Muslims and people of tariqa need to be more mannered, more careful, and think more kindly. No harm comes out of this and you lose nothing. You lose nothing and on the contrary, if you do it right your station increases, and your status among people becomes more esteemed. Therefore, we need to pay attention to these things.

Do not think, “We are Muslim and we can do anything.” If you are Muslim, you will listen to the orders of our Holy Prophet (SAW) and will follow him. May Allah grant us all good manners and fair treatment Inshallah.

Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq. Al-Fatiha.
