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!
