This morning after Fajr prayer and before Eid Prayer, Mawlana congratulated all of us on Eid. Mawlana explained the meaning of Eid and the value of Takbir.
Eid Mubarak and long live our Sultan!
Who Is the Sultan?
Aug07 2013 Turkish 39min
Maru'a is courage that arises from man's humanity. May we be increased in it. Why do you think you are here? Did you come for eating and drinking? For fighting and amassing wealth? Think about it because an hour of thinking is worth more than 70 years of worship. Our way is gold. Seek the One on whose order the universe moves, the Owner of Creation. Don't fight over the world, look for its Sultan.
The Last Day of Ramaḍān
Aug07 2013 Turkish 4min
It is the last day of Ramaḍān and everyone will leave their fasting and praying to run after dunyā. "Keep to the clean path," says Mawlānā, “Dont run with the sewer rats.” If you invite the Sulṭān ﷻ then you will eat from His ﷻ heavenly table.
The Foundation Of Protocol
Aug06 2013 Turkish 44min
The lesson for today is on Tashrifat - being honored. It is a Divine Protocol that determines the honor of each creature. The Prophet (sas) is number one but every creature big and small has its own tashrifa because it was honored by being created by the Lord Most HIgh. From the Prophet to the ant, each has its honor and its name on the list of protocol. So respect that honor and learn the Science, the Foundation of Protocol.
Take Off Your Shoes (20:12)
Aug05 2013 Turkish 40min
Man is a speaking creature and by speaking spiritual words he gains honor. It was by Allah's speaking to them that the great prophets were honored. To Musa (as) it was said: "Ikhla Nalayk" (20:12). Take off the shoes of worldliness and come to the Presence of Allah, to the station of 'Tuwa'. But Allah in His Great Majesty is not a doorman to remove shoes at the door! So who was it that spoke these words to the Prophet Musa?
The Manifestation Of Power
Aug04 2013 Turkish 33min
This morning, the morning of Laylatu-l Qadir, in the sohbat of Shah-i Mardan, Mawlana spoke about the Tajalli that happens in Laylatu-l Qadir. Mawlana showed how this holy night is related to the very existence of Man and his tragic fall.
Laylatu l-Qadr, Laylatu l-Qurb
Aug03 2013 Turkish 28min
The Night of Power is the Night of Nearness. This is what man was created for. He was not created to be a donkey bearing the burden of Dunyā. He was granted great honour. Everything in creation falls into sajdah this night, even the ants. This is the honour given to Ādam (as). Try to keep it.
Stand Devoutly Before Allah (2:238)
Aug02 2013 Turkish 44min
The tiger told the Dervish, ride on my back because we serve the servant of the Lord. And while the Disciples were asking for the Lord's table, S. Isa (as) was asking for the Lord's Pleasure. Learn and understand! Know that the way is through adab and the head of all adab is the Divine command, "وَقُومُوا لِلَّهِ قَانِتِينَ - Stand Devoutly Before Allah (2:238) "
Relate The Stories (7:176)
Aug01 2013 Turkish 33min
True power is from Heavens not from Earth. Ilm (Knowledge) is the key to all power. What is the secret of Ilm? It is Adab. Therefore, "Relate The Stories (7:176)". Stories are the food of the spirit. " إِنَّ أَرْضِي وَاسِعَةٌ - indeed My earth is spacious (29:56)", so follow its ways and do not let your made-up structures blind you to its reality. Relate the stories and take your share of the Tajalli of Ar-Rahman.
What Is Niqab?
Jul31 2013 Turkish 38min
As Yunus the poet says, O Lord why are You veiled? Why can't we see Your Beautiful Face? Allah veils His Beauty from those who cannot appreciate it. The veiling keeps the Beauty pure. Just so men and women should not expose their beauty to whom it is not lawful. They expose themselves to evil eye that steals their beauty and diminishes their light. All the prophets were veiled. Follow their example and do not expose yourself to the world.
In The Likeness Of Uj
Jul30 2013 Turkish 38min
The quality of the people of today is gluttony. They eat and eat and are never satisfied even if they swallow a whole elephant. They are like the giant Uj ibn Unuq. When they are finished they say, Hal min Mazid. - isn't there any more? These are the words of hell and they are the people of the hellfire. No one is teaching them either their own value or the value of Dunya. Ask for forgiveness.
For Morsi Or Against Morsi
Jul29 2013 Turkish 33min
A man is more valuable than the whole world. Learn what gives man that value and what brings him down to the lowest level. Real gems are never given to an animal, yet the horse goes around proud of its false beads. The donkey, too, shocks the lion with its ugly loud voice. O Egyptians, do not waste your time and humanity fighting "For Morsi Or Against Morsi". In Brazil, all are excited over the Pope's visit, what has he really offered them?
Distress and Its Cure
Jul28 2013 Turkish 36min
Everyone is suffering from stress and looking for a cure. Shah-i Mardan says that the cure is with us. The Angels are calling, "ابنوا للخراب و لِدوا للموت - Build for destruction and give birth for death." So the Hadith Sharif "كن مع الله و لا تبالي - Be with Allah and do not worry."
Jul27 2013 Turkish 43min
Following closely the development of events in Egypt and the other Muslim and Arab countries, Mawlana points to how Islam has been deliberately abused by its enemies in order to deprive Muslims of their power, faith and even human honour. Mawlana gives important "News" and praises Obama.
Jul26 2013 Turkish 45min
Man has spent his precious time on earth forging iron to make machines and weapons. For what purpose? Allah said that He made the earth spacious. There is room enough for everyone. If it is not big enough He will make it bigger. There is no reason to fight and kill over the things of this world. Is there no one left who thinks? Earth, water, iron are all divine gifts. All men are brothers. If you do not change, there are those with the power to make you change and that time is approaching.
Without A Guide
Jul25 2013 Turkish 37min
Life is a road and religion is a guide to show the way. Since Adam (as) Allah Almighty has sent men and signs as guides for Mankind. Today the people have lost the way and they are lost. They cannot find their way home. Mawlana tells a story from his childhood that provides an illustration and a warning for the people of today. Remember who is your Creator and who is your enemy. Democracy and Freedom will not benefit you. Follow the Shari'ah and find your way home.
The Story Of Dunya
Jul24 2013 Turkish 35min
Mawlana begins by explaining in a unique way the fall from Paradise of the Prophet Adam (as) and our mother Eve and in so doing he tells "The Story of Dunya". At the end of the sohbah Mawlana transcends dunya altogether and reaches to the "highest horizon(53:7) - وَهُوَ بِالْأُفُقِ الْأَعْلَىٰ" to speak about the level given the Prophet Muhammad (sas) and the level of Islam.
The Divine Seal
Jul23 2013 Turkish 42min
Dunya is a prison and those serving it are its dirt. Allah gave all paradises to Man except one tree, shaytan's way. So the little ant called, " ادخلوا مساكنكم - enter your dwellings (27:18)", stay within your borders and do not go beyond your limits. But Man is ignorant and ignorance does not suit him. If you only can see "The Divine Seal" on every human being, you will be able to love and honor everyone. Not to honor the one Allah has honored is kufr. Know that Adab is higher than knowledge.
