We are asking for the spiritual way and on that way you never ask to be at the top. You always ask to be the lowest. Even though he was the top Mawlana never said he was anything. But we must show him the respect he deserves and not even say psst to his cat.
One Order to Follow

Mawlana gave us one order to follow for our own safety and well-being. He appointed Sheikh Mehmet head of the Naqshbandi Tariqa. To follow his order, to follow his direction is our only duty, our only goal. Let the heartache and confusion be over. Let us relax and go back to work.
Stay at the Table

We are one family, Mawlana Sheikh’s family. We must accept what he orders us, what he serves at his table. Sheikh Bahauddin warns us to stay at the table and eat what we are given because that is what is best for us.
My Good Friend Ego
Aug31 2014 English 31min
“I am nothing,” said Mawlana Sheikh. He believed in the lowliest of people and gave them value and his training requires giving up ego. Those among his true believers know he dislikes bad manners. When the attention-seeking ego approaches quietly, pretending to be a friend, be aware it is your enemy.
I Want to Be Nothing
Aug30 2014 English 26min
Mawlana Sheikh was always very clear. He laid a strong foundation for his murids. To take away our confusion a strong link is needed. It is a test of loyalty. We must choose: the booty of this life or Allah and His Prophet? It is not for us to count what Allah grants. Sayyidina Musa sought Khidr (as). Why? To understand how to be nothing.
The Divine Trade
Aug20 2014 Turkish 17min
Do everything with the intention of doing it for Allah. Only good works profit the afterlife. Allah is generous in His favour so don’t be heedless. Just like a clever trader, snatch every opportunity for profit. Collect as much as you can but, protect it from the thieving ego and shaytan and all that may destroy it.
We All Follow Mawlana's Orders

Fire of Regret

Naqshbandi Munāfiq or Naqshbandi Muʾmin?

Allah mentored Rasulallah in adab (good manners). Muslims should learn adab. What is adab? It is good morality and delicacy. It is gratefulness to Allah in everything, to love the Prophet above everyone else and to respect the Sahaba, learned scholars and those higher ranked than oneself. Adab is a beautiful thing. To be without adab is to be like an animal.

The Worst of Voices (31:19)
Aug14 2014 Turkish
Remember Allah constantly. Live as He wishes you should live because in attaining Allah’s pleasure actions become worship. Do not rely on your nafs. Let free, it cannot be trusted just like a donkey that cannot resist braying. And the Quran reminds us: The worst of all voices is the voice of the donkey (31:19).
Do Not Fear Death
Aug13 2014 Turkish 17min
Nobody will live forever, so it is essential to contemplate death. Yesterday slipped by and we may not be alive tomorrow. Think and live this way. The dead one says: I was a traveller, I was called to my destination and so shall you. Cherish the present and accept Allah’s decree. No need for sadness. Contemplate death. By accepting it, its fear is removed.
The One More Knowing
Aug12 2014 Turkish 20min
Those who are proud of their knowledge must understand that Allah has given only the tiniest bit to them. Claiming to know more is foolishness because as much as a person knows, another one knows more. Be thankful even for very hot weather. It has benefit, as long as Allah and His Prophet’s advice is kept.
Be Awake for Akhirat
Aug11 2014 Turkish 17min
Our destination is Akhirat. We are like travellers, journeying through the desert in a caravan. It is dangerous. The heedless, the strays, will be left behind. This caravan is a company of the beloved servants of Allah. Safety means being awake and journeying with them. If not, ours will be the loss and the regret.

Allah loves the young worshipper. To follow Allah is easy although shaitan tries to make it seem difficult. A young person has to war against many desires in order to obey Allah and in return Allah rewards him generously. Older ones also, by Allah’s consent, may achieve similar rewards by striving to remain young.

The Time Comes Near (54:1)
Aug08 2014 Turkish 28min
The Day of Judgement is near. The chaos of present day events is a sign of this. The greater majority of Muslims is the Ahl as-Sunnah; peaceful and quiet Muslims.
