There are certain things to be done in the first 10 days of Dhū l-Ḥijjah. Qurbān is wājib for Ḥanafī and sunnah mu’akkadah for Shāfi‘ī. It is an ‘ibādah that should not be abandoned. You can send the money to sacrifice in a poor country but you cannot just give money to the poor.
To Be Helpful for People
Aug05 2019 Turkish 15min
We believe that both good and bad are from Allāh ﷻ. Good is to be helpful to people. If you do good be thankful to Allāh ﷻ. If you do bad, you must ask forgiveness and not excuse yourself by saying that was the will of Allāh ﷻ.
The Month of Pilgrimage
Aug04 2019 English 18min
We have reached the month of Dhū l-Ḥijjah when all the Muslims join together at one point to give their love. Think what a power made this to happen and don’t waste your life searching for why and what. Use your heart, which Allāh Almighty made His ﷻ maqam.
Aug03 2019 English 18min
Be like Sayyidunā Ayyūb (as) who had everything and when it was taken away, he continued to thank his Lord ﷻ. Don’t complain, don’t be envious, don’t make drama. Use the mind Allāh Almighty gave you to appreciate His ﷻ great gifts and be happy that you were not created a donkey.
No Place for Drama
Jul28 2019 English 15min
Taṣawwuf is to be a good one and to ask good for others. There is no place for drama. Their death day is their best day, the day they go to their love. If you really want something of value from this dunyā, keep the love of Rasūlu Llāh.
Rasūlu Llāh ﷺ Brought Civilisation
Jul27 2019 English 25min
Allāh ﷻ sent Sayyidunā Muḥammad ﷺ as a mercy for everyone. He ﷺ brought humanity to humans. Dig under every civilisation, East or West, and you will find his ﷺ influence. A story about ‘Umar ibnu l-Khaṭṭāb (ra) illustrates the fine character of Muslims and what they are lacking today.
Adab and Discipline
Jul07 2019 English 21min
Rasūlu Llāh ﷺ is like the sun, giving light and life. He ﷺ is the example of the best adab and discipline. When you lose adab you lose everything. Muslims have lost both. The Shaykh gives as examples – Egypt, South Korea, and Rome.
The Value of Your Prophet ﷺ
Jul06 2019 English 20min
Our Du‘ā’ should be, “Yā Rabbi put us with the ṣāliḥīn.” They are the ones who know the value of the Prophet ﷺ and who are not lazy in their love for him ﷺ. Everything else you love, you will leave except the eternal love for Rasūlu Llāh ﷺ and Allāh Almighty and the link for that is a murshid.
Be a Good One
Jul02 2019 English 14min
Today all people are trying to please shayṭān. No one is thanking or thinking of Allāh ﷻ. But no matter what you do, shayṭān will always be your enemy. Mawlānā's (q) advice to us was always to be a good one and teach others to be good ones also.
Try to Be Happy with Your Lord
Jun30 2019 English 21min
Allāh ﷻ loves those who are thankful and happy with what He ﷻ gives. He ﷻ wants you to be happy here and promises happiness in the Hereafter. So don’t look for drama, don’t dig for sadness that was buried years ago. In every occasion there is some happiness.
With the Eyes of Your Heart
Jun29 2019 English 24min
Those who know to give ṣalāt wa-salām on the Prophet ﷺ are mu’min. Those who deny it are munāfiq. Allāh ﷻ gives to the mu’min the ability to see with the eyes of the heart and opens his understanding. He will never be the slave of anyone. Muslims today are the slaves of everybody.
Jun25 2019 English 18min
"Don’t be sad (lā taḥzan), Allāh ﷻ is with you” (9:40). This is what Allāh ﷻ said to His Prophet ﷺ and what the Prophet ﷺ repeated to his best friend Abū Bakr (ra) when it seemed they were trapped in a cave in the desert. These are words we must remember in these days of tyrants. Believe in your Creator ﷻ before it is too late.
Flower Your Heart
Jun22 2019 English 15min
We are weak and taṣawwuf puts us in shape. We need a murshid to give us guidance although we can learn from everything, a donkey or a child. We need refreshment for the heart not Wahhābī lectures.
We Are Spoiled Rich Babies
Jun18 2019 English 20min
We are the worst generation of Muslims since the time of the Prophet ﷺ. The Muslims are born like billionaires. Allāh ﷻ has given them the best of His ﷻ treasures, Islām, and they waste it and don’t appreciate it and lose it. Islām never changes but the Muslims of today are lost.
The Blessings of the Dergah
Jun15 2019 Turkish 15min
The Dergah of Mawlānā Shaykh Nāẓim (q) is a special place and people worry that they cannot keep its blessings when they return home. However, all his dergahs around the world carry the same blessing, the same atmosphere. Spend an hour a week in the dergah of your country or in dhikr in your home and always be connected.

It Is Time to Be Patient
Jun14 2019 Turkish 20min
There are two parts of īmān, shukr and ṣabr. We must be thankful to Allāh ﷻ for all His ﷻ gifts and we must wait patiently for victory to come. In these times it is most important to be patient and not be foolish.
This Time Is Like a Dark Night
Jun13 2019 Turkish 14min
The Prophet ﷺ said that at the end of time it will be dark like a dark night. Most people will be on the wrong way. They neither love the Prophet ﷺ nor appreciate the favour of being in his ﷺ Nation. Without ṭarīqah they don’t know what to do and have no light.
