And what about the Greek Cypriots? Several important and real questions, Hasan Hasturer Bey managed to ask Mawlana in a simple way and in a pleasant atmosphere of familiarity and deference.

It is the responsibility of Muslims to see in whose hands their rule falls. When Muslims are busy with their dunya and heedless of their enemies, leaving power to fall in the hands of their enemies, punishment comes on them.

Jan08 2012 English
Addressing HRH Rajah Ashman and his guests, on the last day of their trip, Mawlana urged them to keep sultans and "Sultanate". In Islam each person is created to occupy a certain place, to carry a certain role, and he is fully equipped for it. In Democracy, people think they can create their destinies and change their places and other people's too. The result is a loss of faith, of order, of efficiency and of harmony.
