This world is a test, it is not supposed to be easy. But it becomes easy for the believer. Difficulty lasts only a second or an hour or a day, depending on the strength of belief. The people who gather here take home happiness.
Mawlana Sheikh Nazim
May07 2017 Turkish 42min
Mawlānā is the brilliant spring of īmān and he offered this clean water to all people. He held the heavy position of Qutbu z-Zamān for longer than any other shaykh in the Golden Chain. Shaykh Mehmed gives a short history of his father and warns people to be careful and stick to the way he showed and not divide into groups.
Know Your Self
May06 2017 Turkish 19min
When asked about the soul the Prophet ﷺ, who knew more than any other man, said he could not answer. The secret of the soul lies with Allāh ﷻ. To know your self means to know your limits and to know the greatness of Allāh ﷻ.
Ask On Laylatu l-Barā’at
May05 2017 Turkish 27min
On the night of Barā’at Allāh ﷻ writes the destinies for the coming year. Believers should ask from Allāh ﷻ everything good for themselves, their families, and their nations. They should ask especially for Sayyidunā Mahdī (as) to come to bring justice to this world.
Allāh ﷻ Loves Those Who Forgive
May04 2017 Turkish 24min
There are three kinds of Muslims. Two of them hold grudges against the family of the Prophet ﷺ or against his companions. The third kind follows the way of the Prophet ﷺ and is loving and forgiving. The purpose of this life is to love Allāh ﷻ.
The Favoured Few
May03 2017 Turkish 17min
Good people are few and we are happy to be in the minority among human beings. We are happy to be together in this small gathering following the way of the Prophet ﷺ, the favoured few.
Mar25 2017 Turkish 20min
The deputies in ṭarīqah are there to collect and teach people good manners and this good way. They must be careful not to follow their egos and not to believe their imagination. To be proud is the worst. Be humble and don’t think “I am awliyā’, I am shaykh”. Be sincere and sacrifice your ego for the people. “Die before you die.”
The Three Holy Months
Mar24 2017 Turkish 27min
The three holy months are a gift from Allāh ﷻ for the ummah of Muḥammad ﷺ. Allāh ﷻ is giving us millions of spiritual presents, holy days and nights in this time, bringing the happiness that so many are searching for. In shā’a Llāh this time makes our belief stronger and gives hidāyah to those being cheated.
Mar23 2017 Turkish 16min
Allāh ﷻ created us for His ﷻ pleasure, and He ﷻ likes us to worship Him ﷻ. Qiyāmu l-Layl is the more acceptable and valuable ‘ibādah. It was obligatory for the Prophet ﷺ to make it, but it was made sunnah for his ﷺ ummah because it is so difficult. The night time, is when the servant and Allāh ﷻ are closest. Many are sleeping so late, so it is even more difficult to wake up. But you must make your time and listen to the Prophet ﷺ.
The Wisdom of Creation
Mar20 2017 Turkish 14min
Allāh’s ﷻ order and wisdom is to make people like passengers in this world to remember Him. First morning, then evening, then quickly morning again. Every day is the same. Without belief, this becomes boring; waking, eating, working, sleeping. With belief we are able to wait and arrive to the next prayer remembering Allāh ﷻ, and so He remembers us also.
Begin with Yourself
Mar19 2017 Turkish 13min
These are the worst days in the history of humanity. Some ask, "What can we do?" Everyone should know their responsibility. You must look to yourself; make yourself a good man, train yourself and your ego first. After, you can train your family. Be with your children. Take care of them; teach them good behaviour and to be good people and good servants for Allāh ﷻ. And then after that, those around you.
The Worst Attribute: Envy
Mar18 2017 Turkish 16min
The worst attribute for human beings is envy. The first one that had envy was shayṭān. He went from being the highest among the angels to the lowest because of his envy of Ādam (as). We must be happy and accept what Allāh ﷻ gives us. He ﷻ made us all different. We must follow the way of ṭarīqah to cure this illness of envy to slowly, slowly finish your ego.
The Way of the Prophet ﷺ
Mar17 2017 Turkish 26min
We are following ṭarīqah; the way of the Prophet ﷺ. Many, especially Muslims are looking for ṭarīqah, taṣawwuf. Some say that it is not necessary, but this is ridiculous. Because our life is not for this dunyā, our life is for ākhirah. And ṭarīqah is showing us this way for eternity, for heaven, for good things through teaching the farḍ, sunnah, nafl and khalwah.
Who Doesn't Love Me ﷺ Is Kāfir
Mar16 2017 Turkish 11min
The Prophet ﷺ said, ‘Who doesn’t love me, he is kāfir, he is not Muslim.’ The love of the Prophet ﷺ is the most powerful thing in Islām. You must have love, respect and praise for the Prophet ﷺ. But when you say ‘I cannot love the Prophet’ shayṭān enters this door to finish our belief. Even those with the highest Islamic studies and being ḥāfiẓ of Qur’ān, they are nothing at all without this love.
Mar15 2017 Turkish 12min
Allāh ﷻ praises the people who are sincere and keep their promises. They are praised in the Holy Qur’ān as ‘Real Men’; they are real believers. They are the ones who promised to be with, obey and follow Allāh ﷻ, and the Prophet ﷺ. They are happy to make this promise and nothing can change their love; they are like steel. They only wish to please Allāh ﷻ.
