In a beautiful sohbat from the treasures of the Ramadaniyat, Mawlana questions himself about the meaning of life. He answers with the first word that the Angel Jibrail (as) spoke to the Prophet Muhammad: Read, Learn!
Laziness of the Modern World
Aug11 2012 Turkish 29min
The Biggest of Fitnas
Aug10 2012 Arabic 14min
Mawlana as a gift for Ramadan makes some sense out of the horrible things that are happening in the world at the present time. What happened in the past explains what is happening in the present.
The Honor of Ramadan
Aug10 2012 Turkish 18min
In yet another jewel from the Ramadaniyat, Mawlana speaks about the Ottomans who, with all their power, kept the honor of Ramadan. They kept within the limits set by Allah and so He kept their honor also. And what are we doing today?
Everything Has Its Place
Aug09 2012 Turkish 18min
Mawlana presents us with another jewel in the strand of Ramadaniyat. Again addressing the Turkish speakers in particular, he tells the young men that they were created for more than hanging out in coffee shops and the young women that they were created for more than showing off their nakedness. He pleads with them to come to their senses and remember their Creator and the purpose of their creation.
The Signs of Divine Anger
Aug08 2012 Turkish 29min
The Signs of Allah’s Anger are all around us. Mawlana forcefully warns the Turkish people, and all Muslims, to wake up and correct their steps before it is too late.
Self-Display in Jahiliya al-Akhira
Aug06 2012 Arabic 38min
In this jewel of Ramadhaniyat, Mawlana shows the many meanings of "Tabarruj" (self-display), which is a symptom of "Jahiliyat" (ignorance). Mawlana warns all Muslims, both individuals and governments, not to be deluded by Shaytan and urges them to carry their Islamic duties and know their priorities. A strong warning was also given to all those eager to enjoy Umra (visit Mecca and Medina) in our difficult days and to the governments that encourage them.
Aug02 2012 Arabic 19min
In another "Ramadhaniyat" gift, Mawlana speaks about the benefits of fasting for training the nafs of the individual to carry him to the level of "Al-Ihsan" ( Perfect Goodness). Allah loves those who do good and are good 3:134 "والله يحب المحسنين". Goodness brings goodness. It is the salvation for the individual and the answer to his socio-political problem. So again the key to solving the political lies with the person, the Individual.
The Renaissance of the Devil
Jul29 2012 Arabic 38min
Mawlana addresses his royal guest with a short history lesson in which he explains that the actual purpose of the Renaissance was to destroy all religion. Shaytan, using this shiny word, led man into betraying himself and his Lord. The fruit of this in the Muslim world was the Young Turks and the Ikhwan. When he was asked why he recommended that the Muslims of Syria put down their weapons and retire to their houses, he replied that their efforts now will bring about more harm than benefit.
The World is a Carcass
Jul24 2012 Arabic 17min
Mawlana quotes the Hadith that "The World is a Carcass". Those who search for satisfaction in the world will never be successful. Only if they find their pleasure and contentment with whatever they are given will they be truly happy. Muslims wake up!
The House of the Lord
Jul23 2012 Arabic 37min
Mawlana speaks about the great honor Allah gave the Arabs, the Muslims. He established His House in the forgotten deserts of Arabia and made the Arabs who they are today. They have forgotten the True way, yet they are proud of their knowledge. Allah honored all the People of the Book with Prophets, with Books and "The House of The Lord". They have all forgotten. The only way for them is to remember and return to Allah.
Do Not Be Deceived by Dunya
Aug20 2011 Turkish
Everything in this world is passing. Everything is between two points; and whatever has a beginning has an end. So "Dünyaya Aldanma! - Do Not Be Deceived by Dunya! - و لا تغررنك الدنيا"
The King of Darknesses and His Realms
Aug17 2011 Turkish 37min
How is it possible that a man can choose Darkness over Light? But this is the predominate choice of the men of the 20th and 21st centuries. The Muslims obey the non-Muslims and follow "The King of Darknesses & His Realms - Karanlıklar Kralı ve Diyarı - ظلمات الطاغوت".
To All Those Not Fasting Ramadan
Aug16 2011 Turkish 53min
"Ramazan Orucu Tutmayanlara - To All Those Not Fasting Ramadan". You are free, but finally you will have no one to blame but yourselves! Mawlana tells humorous stories about what might happen to those who do not fast and those who continue to smoke.
Men of Religion
Aug09 2011 Turkish 53min
Mawlana makes fun of the term "Men of Religion" which was invented to replace the traditional terms such as, Hoja or Imam. This new title is devoid of meaning and value, and the people who carry it resemble the name. Both are form without substance.
Aug08 2011 Turkish 48min
"Latife - Subtlety - لطيفة" Mawlana speaks about a nation that has cut its connections to its great historical and cultural roots. It stays confined within the limits of a made-up contemporary consciousness and is incapable of going beyond itself or of reaching a true understanding. Mawlana explains his use of "subtleties - لطائف" and the order to do so from the Quran. Mawlana is speaking to Jubbeli Ahmad Hoja in this way and the Hoja understands the real meaning.
Sultan Abu Ayub al-Ansary
Aug06 2011 Turkish 46min
"Sultan Eyüp Hz - (أبو أيوب الأنصاري (رضي الله عنه - Sultan Abu Ayub al-Ansary". The Mufti of Istanbul is discouraging people from visiting the tomb of the great Sahabi and the spiritual Sultan of Istanbul, Hz. Abu Ayub al-Ansary (ra), claiming that such a visit has no value. The mosque of Hz. Ayub is closed throughout the Holy month of Ramadan because they say that it is "under renovation". This is a situation that breaks the hearts of true Muslims who seek nearness to their Prophet (sas) especially in this holy month by means of such a visit. This is not unique to Turkey or Istanbul. It happens in all Muslim countries wherever a tomb of a sahabi or a relative of the Prophet (sas) or that of a big saint, exists. Mawlana answers them and urges Hoja Jubbeli Ahmad and all Imams to speak up and stop such fitna.
