Boyfriend? Girlfriend?

The Sheikh asked a visitor whether he was married.
The man replied that while he wasn’t married he did, however, have a girlfriend, who was also present in the gathering and whom he then introduced to the sheikh.
The Sheikh then said:
She is the most suitable lady for him, and he is the most suitable man for her. It is a bad practice that has become prevalent in our time for people to be boyfriend and girlfriend. If their friendship is going to result in marriage, then it is alright, normal. But if they are not even considering marriage, it is very bad for them to be together.
Therefore, when a man finds himself a lady friend, who it seems to him who would make him a good wife, and if she is satisfied with him as well, they should marry without delay. A couple needs some time to get to know each other, but they must not forestall making a discission. The ideal period for getting to know one another is between three days and forty days. Some people can find out enough in three days to be able to decide, and others may need up to forty – but that is the maximum (barring unusual circumstances). If a decision is deferred for longer than that, the relationship will weaken, and doubt will seize the hearts of one or both of them.
This lady is the best lady for our brother here, but our lower selves desire to have all ladies. The lower selves of men hate being limited in one woman, and demand to have absolute freedom to go with all the ladies that they may fancy. Especially in our times men want to be like a ram in a flock of ewes – one male to a hundred females. That is the ego’s demand, and that is why they see marriage as a prison for themselves.
But you must know that even if you attain absolute freedom to pursue your ego desires, and even if you manage to enjoy yourself, yourself ego is still not going to be satisfied. Material pleasures are like salt water to a thirsty person: the more he drinks, the more acute his thirst becomes. But if you give a thirsty person one cup of fresh water, he drinks and is satisfied.
Therefore, from among all ladies your wedded wife alone is permitted to you by God’s law, and if she is the one who is sweet and can quench your thirst. My advice to everyone is to drink fresh water by taking a lawfully wedded wife. Let every man with a girlfriend take her as his wife, and every lady with a boyfriend take him as her husband.

Take Power From Reciting “Bismillahir-Rahmanir-Raheem”

Take Power From Reciting “Bismillahir-Rahmanir-Raheem”
Sultan al-Awliya
Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Adil al-Hakkani
27 February 2010     |     Lefke, Cyprus
Dastoor yaa Sultanu ‘l-Awliyaa, madad yaa Rijaal Allah, madad yaa Sultan. Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) La ilaaha illa-Llah, la ilaaha illa-Llah, la ilaaha illa-Llah, Sayyidina wa Nabiyyina Muhammadun Rasoolullah. Allah, zidhu izzan wa sharafa, nooran wa suroora ridwaanan wa sultanan. (Allah, give him more honor and nobility and noor and happiness and power.) Ameen, ameen, ameen. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)
Dastoor yaa Sultanu ‘l-Awliyaa, madad! We are in need heavenly support. Dastoor, O heavenly ones. We are also saying, salaam to controller of this world, who is responsible for everything happening on this planet, dunya.
How can one person reach Allah Almighty? When He is asking something to be, He is only saying, “Be!” and it is going to be. If He is asking an ant for controlling this huge world, in just a moment Allah (swt) can do this. Therefore, Allah Almighty is making khalifah, a deputy for Mankind. Men are deputies but one only is going to be on power, not everyone. No, one is enough! And divine order is coming on him and he is looking at the Preserved Tablet and according to everything on it.
As-salaamu alaykum yaa Sayyidina, Sultanu ‘l- Awliyaa, wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh, awwidduna. Help us for understanding what you are giving us to address to people. Give us a power of understanding and that is our main target, to reach our controller, our Sultan, so that we can reach everything here and Hereafter through his way.
As -salaamu alaykum, O Mankind, attenders. Attend in 24 hours, give a little bit of time, even a short time for your coming future. Try to reach something that should be useful for you after this life. You are living a life that is going to give a benefit. Therefore, try to reach something from heavenly knowledge and heavenly support, try for that purpose. Even a very short time gives to you a good chance to come in the Divine Presence, and you will be accepted by heavenly beings.
O our Master, we are saying, as you are ordering us to say, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani ‘r-rajeem, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem. Always run away from the dirty one, the dangerous one, the ugly one. All characteristics of Shaytan are as a magnet, collecting everything on it. Shaytan is collecting every badness, everything that may give people harm. Everything on it, therefore, beware as it may throw one poisoned arrow on you! Everything Shaytan is sending on people is poison. Beware from Shaytan! Take your care from Shaytan. We must repeat it all times, every time. According to high command of Allah Almighty, fadhdhakkir, addressing the Seal of Prophets (s), the divine representative of the Lord of Creation (swt) and everything, saying, “Don’t leave people to forget. Dhakkirhum, remind them for every occasion so that they can protect themselves.
If a person is coming to the level of fighting and the enemy begins to throw arrows and they are coming like this, make like this, like that. (Mawlana Shaykh ducks.) Take your care not to touch you. If arrows touching you on Earth, so easy, but if Shaytan is throwing arrows, it’s arrow are poison and it is changing your being into another form. Perhaps your out-looking (appearance) is as a man, but with poisoned arrows of Shaytan, your inner being is going to be a second Shaytan. By out-looking, people think you are from humanity, human nature. But Shaytan is asking to dress everyone with poison dressing, giving you trouble day and night, every position you will be in is haraam, sin. Shaytan’s purpose is always that you will not be in a good condition.
If you are in a good condition here then after this life that good condition is a heavenly grant to everyone. You may keep it through the graveyard, you may keep it, the Day of Resurrection. All goodness is coming through “bismillah”. Don’t forget to recite, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem. If you like to be here and Hereafter in the best condition, every condition that makes you happy and in pleasure and in pleasement, come and drink from the oceans of Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem.
O People! Try to be friendly with saying, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahman ‘r-Raheem. When you are saying, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, tanzeelu ‘l-Rahmah, heavenly blessings coming on you from Allah Almighty and also from His Divine Attribute “ar-Rahman,” the Most Merciful, other blessings are coming on you. Another of His Holy Names, “ar-Raheem,” the Most Beneficent, is coming on you, running through your hearts such blessings that you can’t imagine. Therefore say (as dhikr), Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem… Huuu.
Just reaching such a holy knowledge about Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem. Who may say 21 times before sleeping, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, if he is passing that night, passing it through Paradise. Such a power is running through Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem. Keep it! So many people coming saying, “uhhh, huh.” Depression, keep for this. Keep saying, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, you will be okay. Commonly coming on all Mankind, but if anyone saying, daily 100 times, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, coming a new understanding with a new power reaching you. That power is protecting you here and giving to you what you are going to ask in the next life. Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, is never going to end through the tongues of believers and through surrendered people and through mu’mins and through so many people who are falling in troubles; to take away bad conditions. If he likes every badness to be taken from him and to be saved in the next life, reciting Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem is very important, very important.
But we are running for something that has no value. If you are asking to reach value through your life, for every action or every effort that you are entering say, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem. It gives you power and honor and satisfaction and pleasure and pleasement. Every effort, everything that you are asking to do, say, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, and granting to you endless Power Oceans and Pleasure Oceans. Say only, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, because it is Allah Almighty’s `ismi al-`Aadham, Name of the Greatest One. You can find that Holy Name through the Lord of Heavens. Reciting Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem gives you power; Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem gives you pleasure; Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem grants you to be in existence; Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem gives to you strength in front of bad things always, who is asking to reach goodness, pleasure and success and heavenly support.
People are coming and asking, “O Shaykh, make du’a for us.” I am saying, it is so well known, if anyone asking to be in pleasure, only words for them to reach their real targets here and through graveyard and the Day of Resurrection, because (they have) endless Power Oceans, Light Oceans so big, don’t worry from anything! You can find Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, so easy for you! Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem is a heavenly top reaching on Earth for people who can’t reach up for heavenly stations. You may do here Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, you may find yourself up and up and up. Don’t worry from anything. SubhaanAllah!
The first thing Shaytan is making people to forget, is Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem. Most important thing through the lives of Mankind, to be friendly with Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem. Here and Hereafter, he is going to be saved and reach highest degrees of pleasure and pleasement, and be acceptable in the Divine Presence. But firstly, Shaytan is coming and making people not to say Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, and not to believe. Shaytan is coming and making such foolish ideas for people. People are thinking, “We are not in need to say Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r- Raheem, we may speak as we like, our speech and our speaking is bringing us so many things.” That is shaytanic teaching!
O People! Keep reciting Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, don’t worry. If saying, one Bismillahi ‘r Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, never touching to that one a badness here and Hereafter. Now in our days, people are becoming like rocks, no sense in it. Even stones, animals and plants, everyone through their tongues are saying, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem. Everything is saying, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem. Only heedless Mankind is not saying, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, forgetting to say it and forgetting to teach their small ones. Say Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem! Everything with Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem is sweet, everything with Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem is healthy for you, everything with Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, is a power for you, everything with Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem is making you succesful for everything you are in need to do.
If you like long life, Allah Almighty gives it with Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem. (Mawlana Shaykh laughs) People are trying to get a long life, are taking tablets, taking injections and so many foolish things to make themselves stronger and powerful. Many are making advertising, “Take this medicine! Take this syrup! Take this tablet! To be longer, to be up!” Instead, if people are understanding and believing in Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, this world is going to change 100%. No trouble on it, no one harming another one, no one in suffering, no one in miseries, no one is going to be depressed, no one is going to be in huzn, sadness.
Yes, enough to believe in Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, oceans, oceans, oceans coming with Bismillahi r Rahman ir Raheem, Subhanallahi ‘l-Aliyyi ‘l-Azheem. Therefore, the  biggest grant of Allah Almighty to Mankind is to make them say, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem. (Mawlana does dhikr of Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem) Hungry, getting to be full and the thirsty, going to be satisfied. If drinking one well (of) water, thirstiness can’t be taken away from that person but with Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, your thirst is going away. Say Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, your hunger goes away, say Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, your anger is going away, say Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, everything harming you is going to run away from you.
That is the main blessed ocean for Mankind here, if people will reach to look, to see, to know, to understand and to taste something on Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem through spiritual looking, they will fall down from the pleasure of saying, (sings repeatedly), Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem. Never going to be defeated, when they are saying, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem. Allah never makes them to be defeated but they will be always victorious, every time for every purpose, for every chance. If saying, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, it opens doors. So many people coming and saying, “O Shaykh! We are in a very difficult position, please say du’a for us that we can be able to get out from difficult positions.”
O People! We are saying, what you learned from your religion? That means you learned nothing from your belief of Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem. If you learned something from this huge religion, you would not come to me to say, “O my Shaykh, please give us an opening for pleasure and satisfaction to our hearts.” No, you continue to say Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem. If you fall into an ocean and you are saying, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, you will be saved! “For the honor of Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, save me, O my Lord, from a difficult position!” What you are learning to save you from crisis, economical crisis?  People are closed down in one circle, but they like to get out and they can’t do it. And we are saying, “O People! If you like to be saved from a weak position and bad conditions, say, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem. Every opening is coming after saying, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem!”
O People! What we can say? People are running after Shaytan and his bad ideas and bad positions. That Shaytan is saying, to you, “This is good and that is bad.” Never going to be!  But what Allah Almighty is saying, and sending from His endless oceans, you will find yourself so happy, so light, so enlightened, so in pleasure that even if you have no coin in your home and can only find dried bread, to say Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem is enough for you to reach heavenly positions, to find pleasure here and Hereafter! It is the biggest grant, you can reach every purpose here and every pleasure after this life. Try it, try it! To try something is balash, free; learn it and go away.
Who is reaching the secret power of Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem? If gold is reaching a person by material means, it is going away, but what you are reaching through your beloved powers through yourself, by saying Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, you will be a beloved one here and Hereafter, and happiness going around you, taking away sorrows. It is important for the happiness of Mankind in our days who are following shaytanic ways and falling down. You may save yourselves with Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem. Allah makes it easy through our hearts to say it, taking away sorrows, sorrows of economic crisis; such a thing leaves you by the baraka of Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem.
You will save yourselves by saying, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem, you should say it in your heart with misbaha, praying beads, or even without, you should reach what you are asking to reach. Everything you need or you like to reach, keep to say, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem. Now is worst time for Mankind. People are in worst position and everyone is complaining. Instead of complaining, they must say at least 100 times daily, Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem. More, taking sorrow from you, from your hearts and coming a special lightening on yourself, you will be happy.
May Allah Almighty grant. May Allah forgives us. Fatihah.

(Mawlana sings a favorite Turkish song:)
Yaa Muhammad canım arzular seni,
bütün hayatınızı o en sevgili en şanlı olana verin.
Rabbinin ilahi huzurunda şereflene verin.
Yaa Muhammad canım arzular seni.
Dost Muhammad canım pek sever seni.

O Muhammad, my soul desires you,
give all of your life to this One Who is the glorious.
In the presence of your God, give it with honor.
O Muhammad, my soul loves you.
O Friend Muhammad, my soul desires you so much!
Fatihah. Ameen, ameen, ameen.

Sohbet – Shaykh Abdul Kerim al-Kibrisi – 1431

One Religion in the Presence of Allah

Bismillahir Rahmanir RaheemONE RELIGION IN THE PRESENCE OF ALLAH (Vimeo)

Juma Khutba delivered by Sheykh Abdul Kerim al-Hakkani al-Kibrisi
Friday 11 Zil-Qadah, 1430

Auzu billahi min-ash sheytanir rajim

Medet Ya Seyyidi Sultanul Awliya, Medet.

Alhamdulillah, alhamdulillah, alhamdulillah. Astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah al-azim wa atubu ilaih. Inna ad-dina indallah-ul Islam. One religion in the presence of your Lord. Islam. Saying to us, `Don’t come to my presence with something else. You will be failing. The only religion that I’m accepting is Islam. The only book that I’m accepting is the Quran. The only prophet and the last prophet that I’m accepting is Muhammad (alayhi salatu wa salam).’
Eh, the 21st Century people are reading a lot, they have so much computers, they built these computers mashaAllah, they built so much technology, but they are buried in it. They sink in it. They are knowing nothing because they are not knowing what is good for them and what is bad for them. They are running top-speed after illusions and delusions and so many wrong thinkings. And Allah is sending to us saying, `Islam’. Islam is open. You cannot hide anything to the corners. Everything is open. He has sent 124,000 prophets and all these prophets were calling their people to Islam, to Allah, saying, `La ilaha illallah.’ That is Islam. Saying, `Submit yourself to your Lord. One and Only. No other one. He has no partner.’
During those times prophets came in their nations. Some believed and some didn’t. So many prophets came and not even one person believed on them. It didn’t change the reality. That one who came and who gave them the message is in safety now and those ones who became disobedient are in trouble. They are in trouble in their graves. After Judgment Day more trouble is coming to mankind. This is what man is building to himself because the ego is standing.
The ego is always saying, `Me, me and only me. Whatever you say, I don’t care.’ That’s what the ego says. Males and females, the same, saying, `What I say, that’s what has to happen. I am a Muslim but what my ego likes, that’s what I’m going to do.’ No you are not a Muslim then. You lost Islam. Islam is to submit yourself to your Lord, to submit yourself to His orders, to submit yourself to His Prophet (sws), to submit yourself to the rightly guided ones. If you are not submitting yourself to them then you are following the desires of your ego. So you are a servant of your ego. You can do any kind of forms then. You can be a Buddhist, sitting like Buddha, you can be Christians going to church, or Jews going to synagogue once a week, or Muslims going to Juma, or from time to time going into masjids, but you are following your ego. Finished. You are not following the orders of Allah subhana wa ta’ala because you don’t know which ones are those. You do things according to your ego then.
Eh, 21st Century people, from the normal people to murids to the Sheykhs now, cigarettes in their mouths. They are smoking cigarettes. What is that? If a man can’t control himself with a cigarette, if he cannot stop his ego from that cigarette, how is he going to control himself with other orders that Allah is giving to do and don’t? Impossible. The simplest thing and the worst thing, to you, to your community and to your nation, financially and in every way. You cannot stop yourself from that wrong action. How are you going to stop yourself, your ego from so many other tricks and traps that Sheytan is coming to play with you?
Yes, today the name of Islam is there, today the appearances of the Quran is there, the appearances of Masjids are there, but Mu’mins, where are they? We are looking. Where are they? They are hiding. They are pulling themselves to the corners. And the hypocrites, the fools and the ignorant, the tools for Sheytan are appearing here and there. This is the way that it has to happen. That’s what the Holy Prophet (sws) said, `The ones that are giving light are going to pull themselves to the corners. So you are not going to see light. Those who are looking for light, they are going to run after, they are going to find them. But those who are not liking the light of Islam, they are not going to care. They are just like the bats. As soon as they see the light, it’s bothering them.’
Sheytan already changed so many signs in Islam since the 1920′s. `One Way’ is the other way. Everyone is saying, `I am finding my way.’ How are you finding your way? From where are you taking that? Sign is showing that way but already somebody has played around with it. One time I was driving in Cyprus. I see one sign showing one road, saying, `Gecitkoy’. So if you follow that in the map, you see that there is a Gecitkoy and you have to follow that road to go to that village. But somebody came down from their car someday somehow and they took G, E and C out and now the sign says, `Itkoy’. You are looking at the map, there is no such thing as Itkoy. There’s Gecitkoy. So I say maybe it’s a wrong direction, I have to turn to this side. But when you look at it closely you see that somebody took those couple of letters out. Huh, it’s a completely different meaning too. Gecitkoy means giving way to you to pass. Itkoy means the dog’s village. That’s what it means.
All the signs everywhere Sheytan played around with. And as the Holy Prophet (sws) is saying, `In Ahir Zaman only the name of Islam is going to stay. The appearances of Islam are going to disappear.’ That’s what happened. And appearing so many fools in that Itkoy way, that sign, claiming that they know Islam, claiming that they are the best ones. Some are claiming that they are Mahdi, some are claiming that they are prophets, some are claiming that they are Khizr and some are preparing to declare that they are Mahdi.
Eh, Allah gave you intelligence to put it together and to think and to watch. Yes, do you have to watch your Sheykh? Of course. You have to watch every activity that he’s doing. Look. Does it fit into the borderlines of Islam? Yes. Not according to your ego. According to Islam. According to the time and according to that place. Where the wolves are, you don’t walk around without the stick in your hand. When the wolves are around you have to have the gun ready too. It doesn’t matter if you are a Murid or if you are a Sheykh. The wolf is not listening. When the wolf is ready to attack you have to be able to pull and shoot. But so many fools today are not knowing anything. They are not knowing the simple steps of Islam and they are thinking that they know everything and saying, `Oh, Sheykh cannot do this. Sheykh cannot say this.’ Sheykh can use everything that is necessary to save his Murid from hell. He is not looking for worldly activities. He’s not looking how they are going to think. Sheykh is that one who has been given permission from the Holy Prophet (sws) depending on the area that he is working in.
As I said, those fools that they cannot stop themselves from cigarettes, they are jumping today and finding other fools like them and thinking that they are going to harm Islam or thinking that they are going to turn Islam as their ego wants it. You cannot. They have been trying for fourteen hundred years. You cannot. Impossible. Impossible. Islam, Inna ad-dina indallah-ul Islam, the only religion that Allah is accepting. And it looks like now that it’s covered but it’s rising up now. When that cover is taken off, it’s the only one that’s taking over the whole world again. It is so easy for Allah subhana a ta’ala. It is so hard for those ignorant ones even to think on it.
It was so easy for Sultan Mehmet Khan when he aimed to Istanbul, because he had plans and he had aims and he put his life in front saying, `Either Istanbul will take me or I will take Istanbul. There is no other way.’ They said to him, `Are you crazy? Have you lost your mind? Do you know how protected this city is?’ He says, `I know. I know how it is. But I see a vision. And where my sword is reaching, where my power is reaching, not even your imagination can reach because you are not knowing Islam. I know and I am reaching there. Watch me.’ He reached. Watch us. We are reaching back to Istanbul. Watch. We are reaching back to Rome. Watch. All those fools who think that they are standing in front of Islam, in front of those ones, they are only giving energy and power to those who are working in the way of Allah. There’s an Ayat-e Kerima saying, `When they say to them, `All your enemies have come together, they are preparing against you’, that’s making their faith to grow stronger and they say, `Hasbinallah wa ni’mal wakeel. Allah is enough for me.” Yes.
So, any safety that anybody is looking for in Dunya and in Akhirat, Islam. Real Islam. Islam the way that the Holy Prophet (sws) brought. Not so many fake things that they put later here and there. Not so many things that they have changed the road with. You can change all the roads, you can change all the signs, but the man who has a vision doesn’t need the signs anymore. He doesn’t need the GPS anymore. He follows the road. He knows the road because there’s a light going in front of him.
So, if you don’t know then you must follow that guide. You must follow his orders. You must not follow your ego and your head to say, `I know so much and I read so much.’ Yes, the more you read the more ignorant you are going to become! The more arrogant you are going to become in these days! The more fool you are going to become in these days! Because that’s what they are preparing for you.
Not even understanding that part that there are so many enemies of Islam running to finish it. Who are the enemies of Islam? The Fascists are the enemies of Islam, the Communists are the enemies of Islam, the Seculars are the enemies of Islam, the Laiks are the enemies of Islam, the Feminists are the enemies of Islam. All these are enemies of Islam. I have more to say but it doesn’t fit to this Khutba place. Other times I say.

No Fear for the Defenders of Truth

Auzu billahi min ash-sheytanir rajim

Medet Ya Seyyidi, Sultanul Awliya, Medet.

Tariqatuna Sohbet wa Khayru fil Jamiat. Our way continues through association. (First we enter into the way). Later step by step everyone is reaching to what is for them that Allah subhana wa ta’ala has given, has prepared. But the 21st Century people, although they are in trouble twenty-four hours, they are still running to make more trouble to themselves, not only in Dunya but in their graves and in Akhirat. Anyone who’s running for Islam, Islam means submission. Peace. And the peace can only come through submission. And submission is to the One who has created you. But not according to your ego. It’s according to what He has prepared, that He has sent 124,000 prophets to show people roads from Dunya to Akhirat and to show people that they have become dirty and they became disobedient to Allah.
Sheytan became disobedient and all the beauty that was given to him, all the knowledge that was given to him, all the power that was given to him, as soon as he became disobedient, it means he changed all that with disobedience. Allah didn’t take it away but that arrogant and stubborn one through that action threw away everything that Allah subhana wa ta’ala had granted to him. He took it and he threw it away. And when the warning reached to him, it’s not only that he was ignorant and arrogant, he then turned to become stubborn with the wrong thing that he did. And he did so until Allah subhana wa ta’ala was ordering the angels, the guards of the paradises, saying, `Kick this one out from Paradise!’ And he has been kicked out from Paradise.
He didn’t sit comfortably. He cannot sit comfortably until the Judgment Day. That worrying and the fear is driving him crazy. And he didn’t sit comfortably and he came to the gates of Paradise, he managed to enter inside through the mouth of the snake… so many snakes are in the world today, he managed to enter inside and he fooled Hazrat Hawa. And Hazrat Hawa became a disobedient one, a direct disobedient one to Allah subhana wa ta’ala. And Hazrat Hawa managed to fool Adam (alayhi salam) and as soon as Adam (as) did the forbidden action, order came to him saying, `Now you became dirty too. Anyone who’s disobedient to My order, they are dirty ones and dirty ones cannot stay in Paradise. Then order was given sending them to this Dunya, saying, `Clean yourselves and come back to Paradise. If you are not cleaning yourselves then you cannot be going back to Paradise. Clean yourselves from those animal characteristics’, because only the animal characteristics became disobedient to Allah subhan wa ta’ala.
And since that time Sheytan managed to enter between the children of Adam (as) and put confusion and Fitna, and always one group is running to keep the orders of Allah and another one always running to make confusion and disobedience to Allah subhana wa ta’ala. And that has continued up to the last prophet Muhammad (salatu wa salam). And did it stop? No. It continued. When Islam became a state and a government that’s ruling strongly, Sheytan couldn’t run around too much to put more of his confusion inside the believers. Since 1908, since Ulul Hakan Sultan Abdul Hamid Khan came down from power, Sheytan is running top-speed inside of Muslims and he managed to fool them left and right, to put confusion to them while they are in the same Masjids and they are following the same Sheykhs or they are running to do something for Allah’s sake.
What’s making that? Their ego. Everyone wants their ego to be praised. Eh, your ego is a disobedient creature to Allah subhana wa ta’ala. Anyone who’s going to praise your ego, that one is also a sheytan. Especially now, in the Ahir of Ahir Zaman, in the confusion of sheytans and dajjals. There is nothing left for the big Dajjal to come out. And I am seeing so many running after the dajjals. Eh, run. You are free to go anywhere. Run anywhere. But you are only running away from Haqq to Batil. Nothing else. And dajjals are waiting to put the chains around the necks and later you may be sorry but sometimes the last sorry is not enough. And Sheytan will drag those ones with him into Jahannam.
We are defenders of the Truth. The Hakkanis. Defenders of the Truth. Not only through the name. Not only through this small area. Anywhere we are walking on top of this earth, we are defending the Truth. Anyone who is saying other than that, they must be the agents of Sheytan. In my position I am a weak servant. But as our Sheykh is saying, with Allah subhana wa ta’ala I can be the most strong one. But no need for me to be the strong one because Sheykh Mevlana is on top of everything, Alhamdulillahi Rabbil Alameen.
All those who are going to run and become helpers to Sheytan and dajjals, welcome. Run right now if you want. If there’s not one person left around, don’t think that this attitude is going to change. It’s not. It’s not going to change because we are defending the Truth and against sheytans and dajjals it’s going to become more strong, more powerful. Never is it going to become weaker. We may not be able to carry this until the end. Whatever Allah subhana wa ta’ala has granted to us in this life, inshaAllah ar-Rahman we are going to spend it until the last breath and no man on the face of earth, no sheytans, no dajjals and no governments are going to be able to put any fear in us because we are holding tightly to Allah, to His Prophet (sws) and to His Awliya.
Anyone who is claiming that they know the Awliya, if they don’t know Sheykh Mevlana Muhammad Nazim al-Hakkani, they must be knowing sheytans. If anyone is claiming that they are Awliya, they have to know that one. If they are not knowing that one then they must be the agents of Sheytan. This much should be enough for you, for me and for all those who are going to listen worldwide. And I want this to enter everywhere. Translate in Turkish, put it in English to enter to every one of them, for them to hear this and who’s challenging, I am here. I am not challenging anyone. I am a weak servant. But not wolves, not hyenas, not cats but the rats are trying to challenge me. They are only rats and the rats, the duty of the rats is only to go inside the sewers and to bring out dirtiness. They are surviving with the dirtiness. Nothing else.
Wa min Allahu tawfiq
InshaAllah ar-Rahman, we are asking help and support from our Sheykh and I don’t know about you but I put my neck under his feet. And every blood that is in my body is sacrificed to him. I will never ask if he’s doing right or wrong because I know that he’s doing right. And even if it is something that looks that it’s not right, definitely I trust and I follow his footsteps. And everything that I’m doing in this country for 35 years, all those who know me know that I am following his footsteps, even though so many of them don’t like me because of that. And I have no fear and I have no worry. Even if he says to me the worst words in this world, inshaAllah I am over 50 years old and I didn’t change my heart to him one time, I am not intending to change it until the last breath.
We are serving Sheykh Mevlana Muhammad Nazim al-Hakkani for five generations. My grandfather, my father, me, my son and my grandson. We are serving him. We are going to serve him. Anyone who is saying other than that, either they are attacking me or they are liars or they are in big Ghaflat.
Wa min Allahu tawfiq
Bihurmatil Habib
Bihurmatil Fatiha.

About looking ..

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem
We are learning from the words of our Grandsheikh, I
am speaking as I heard from him; he was speaking about
looking. Everything in Islam is divided into two parts,
permitted and prohibited. Looking is a most important
action. From every holy book and Prophet, servants
are ordered to keep themselves from every prohibited
thing. We have a responsibility, especially in Tariqat,
to be very careful, as every trouble for man is coming
from his looking to prohibited things. These things are
prohibited because there is harm in them. When you
look to harâm women, that looking is a poison arrow
from Satan into your heart. You will find pain. It makes
your faith mixed up and going down. For example, a
nail in a tire will cause the car to stop or go out of con-
trol. Satan’s aim is only to hearts. You must protect
your heart. You can’t move on with a flat tire.
Therefore, looking is very important. If a man is not
keeping his eyes from unlovely places, the least amount
of harm coming to him is that he loses manpower, he
becomes useless with his own lady. One keeping his
eyes is always strong, therefore, prophets and saints are
never losing their power. Our Grandsheikh married af-
ter he was 100 years old. Once walking in the street and
passing a store window, filled with things leading peo-
ple to fornication, he said to me: «Oh Nazim Efendi, if a
man is looking to these things without taking wisdom,
he is a sinner, and wasting his sight without benefit.»
Wisdom means knowing more about one’s Lord. Wa-
sting the light of our eyes, prevents light from coming
on the eyes in our heart. We become blind. When lea-
ving the eyes to look for the ego’s pleasure without fear
of the Lord, in the eyes gathers the darkness of fornica-
tion. To look at young boys is seven times worse than
looking at women. Those things keep us from impro-
ving and reaching our destinations. Our egos keep us in
the darkness of the world, too weighed down to journey
to the heavens. We must try for improvement in the
Divine Presence. It is not so important to read books or
know Qur’ân and Hadith. It is important to keep your
eyes. If doing this, you are an important person, not on
earth but in the heaven. There you are permitted to
look on the Divine Lights of your Lord’s face. Every dir-
ty place is a forbidden place. Don’t look on dirty things
or you will be denied Heavenly Lights. Also forbidden
is looking to the bad actions of others. For example, I
was coming from Hejaz with Grandsheikh and saw one
man shaving his beard after the pilgrimage. I said: «Oh
master, look.» He shouted: «No, don’t look!», because
shaving beard is a no-good action. Allah created it for
the beauty of man. Can you imagine a lion without his
mane? He would look like a monkey. With a beard man
is complete. It is the distinction between men and wo-
men. Therefore, Allah is inspiring the younger genera-
tion to let their beard grow. All the Prophets were ha-
ving beards, it is enough for us to look like them. Don’t
look to a person doing a bad thing.
