Brother Nabil’s resting place is the holy city of Cairo. What makes it holy? Its many holy Muslim guardians. A Muslim’s remains must be respected, but to destroy them is the first action of Shaitan’s soldiers. Let them. The more they do, the closer comes Allah’s help. Good tidings. Night’s darkest time is also the closest to dawn.

What is the meaning of Brother Nabil’s life? He left everything in his life to serve Mawlana day and night. Many could not do that. He was patient. He tasted the sweetness: even after his death Mawlana received him happily. To prepare for akhirah is the meaning of life. We are all returning to Allah.
Don’t Worry Be Happy
Mar19 2015 Turkish 9min
Don’t be sad or anxious. How? By doing what Allah says. His generous gift: Be happy. Awliyaullah do not fear, nor are they sad. They believe. They feel ashamed to go against Allah. Darkness collects by doing wrong things. Be good. Those who entered the right way came on account of Allah’s Grace and Mercy.
A Logical Investment
Mar17 2015 Turkish 18min
This world is investment for akhirah. It is not logical to forget its main purpose and fall for the unnecessary. Qarun’s treasure, of no benefit, is still sinking deep into the ground. No man dies before his appointed rizq ends. Be sincere in asking Allah. Now, on account of one man’s righteousness, many will be shown mercy.
Actions and Judgement
Mar17 2015 Turkish 17min
All actions good or bad will be seen on Judgement Day. To keep from feeling ashamed on that day actions must be good. Good people are afraid to do bad things but Allah will forgive those who repent. Allah’s forgiveness is an open door. Allah loves the believers. He does not love unbelievers.
The Power to Spread Islam
Mar16 2015 Turkish 22min
Worldwide Mawlana’s followers experience his spiritual power. The wisdom behind his un-tiring travel? To impart what great mashsha’ikh teach: to leave pride and be humble, a point of light for every follower. It will take off and spread the baraka of real Islam everywhere. Accept the awliya and climb higher. Even great Sultans like Mahmud Ghaznawi understood this truth.
What Is Good Teaching?
Mar03 2015 English 10min
What is good teaching? It is what comes from the Prophet. Mawlana was teaching it: real love is for Allah, not for what Shaitan sees as good. Love those who love Allah. Respect them. Don’t forget them and be loyal to them. Mawlana never forgot those who gave him respect. He prized their good and covered their bad.
Make It Easy Not Difficult
Mar02 2015 English 19min
Everything halal, Muslims can do. Forcing, misleading, endangering or frightening others are the ways of Shaitan. The Prophet said: make it easy, not difficult. The Wahabi and Salafi are making people run away from Islam. They are leading them into danger. People are really not thinking: following those who worship much but commit the worst innovations.

Creating a precious orchid for the love of Mawlana Sheikh Nazim took patience and dedication. Admiring its cultivator, his host, Sheikh Mehmet said: Allah’s Mightiness is seen in the speciality He gives to man. It is like worship. Looking carefully at what Allah does will make belief strong. Every act intended for Allah will be rewarded.
Justice During Oppression
Feb28 2015 English 26min
During the time of the Rightly Guided Khalifs the Sahaba were brothers to each other. Wealth made the Arabs forget Allah. The khalifs started disrespecting the Ahl al-Bayt just like the Wahabis of today. Khalif Umar ibn Abdul Aziz ended this by establishing true justice in oppressive times. Muslims must follow his example to keep their communities safe.
Feb27 2015 English 22min
Muslims have shame, unlike the Salafi and Wahabi. Their teacher is Shaitan. Disrespectful of Allah and the Prophet, a handful of noisy people are creating suffering everywhere. People worldwide think this is Islam. No, Islam is the opposite. They are like a poison mushroom. Its life, may it be short.
Eat it and you will die.
Importance of Tradition
Feb27 2015 English 15min
It is Allah’s Mightiness that He created people with different customs and different traditions. Islam is for all and to follow the four madhhabs is obligatory. Coming to Sharia is gentle and gradual in Tariqa. Custom is part of good madhhab and a good thing is not forbidden. Worldwide Muslims practice the mawlid or qasida as part of their tradition. It brings baraka.
A Summary of the Journey
Feb26 2015 English 22min
The purpose of Sheikh Mehmet’s South East Asia visit was for people to renew their baya. Who claim to follow Mawlana must respect his will, not their opinion. A reminding and advice, Tariqa is not play. It is service to Allah, not self-service. Allah calls to it those whom He loves. People are free to choose. Their confusion is their test.
Enduring Hardship Pleases Allah
Feb25 2015 English 16min
It is not easy to live among people and endure hardship, to be among non-Muslims and remember Allah. Searching outside Allah’s Way people destroy themselves. Regretful of it, when they find Him, they become very strong. They can then help others be Muslim. Many lose their way in a big city. Tariqa brings them love and mercy.
Al Haya Min Al Iman
Feb24 2015 English 10min
Shyness (haya) is from iman. Tariqa examines both big and small aspects of Sharia and teaches how to be Sahib Haya: one who keeps respect, goodwill, and good manners. Shaitan wants to destroy this adab. Without haya people may do whatever they like. Imposing forcibly on others is from not having haya.
The Blessed Sultanate
Feb23 2015 English 19min
Sheikh Mehmet expressed his gratefulness on visiting the blessed Sultanate of Brunei. A Sultanate is a speciality chosen by Allah and those living in one are lucky. He compared the people of the Sultanate to a group from the Bani Israel who broke away. They lived happily. Allah granted them baraka for their obedience.
To Not Sell Akhirat for Dunya
Feb21 2015 English 18min
The Indonesian Ahl as-Sunna are blessed but they must be careful not to sell akhirat for dunya. They must follow the middle way. They must give zakat to prevent outsiders from coming and corrupting their poor. Not giving zakat has two punishments: one for not giving, the other, for stealing from Allah.

The Alperen originated in Central Asia. Diverse in knowledge and perfectly trained, their mashsha’ikh would send them to foreign lands. Their altruism made them a great example for guiding non-Muslims to Islam. Likewise for Mawlana: He has placed his Alperen worldwide. With Allah’s help and their highest adab, they will attract others to Islam.
