Audhu Billahi min as shaytan al rajim Bismillah ar-Rahman ar-Rahim Don’t forget the Sunnah of Rasulullah (sas). Keep siwak all the time with you. Dastur Ya Sayyidi madad. First of all we say: Audhu Billahi min as shaytan al rajim Bismillah ar-Rahman ar-Rahim & we ask madad of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim, may Allah raise his station always, Sultan ul Awliya, & madad of Grandshaykh, Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah al Daghestani. Nazar and madad and support from Rasulullah (sas). And Allah Almighty dress us by His divinely presence and lights. We are so weak servants on the door of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim
First of all, salam from Mawlana to all of you who are here & all over the countries & the world, murids of Mawlana, & the Ummah of Rasul (s), salams from Sahib al Zaman Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim al Haqqani. Allah raise his station and support him always. O Allah almighty dress him with all means of prosperity & health, cureness near him O Allah almighty. Give him long life to remain & be Imam over us in the time of Mahdi (as) & Isa (as) & to be with him O Allah almighty. Giving salam to everyone with prayer & plenty of love & respect because Allah almighty built his element from love & respect for all Creation. Mawlana Shaykh Nazim said our Naqshbandi way is built on respect. To respect everything, not only each other, but everything Allah created. Even a stone on the road, don’t kick it by your feet Mawlana says. No, take it by your hand, put it aside because Allah created it. Everything contains… the element of everything really it is from the light of Rasulullah (s) & light of Allah almighty. Everything is created from light of Allah almighty. Allah almighty merging His light with the light of Rasulullah (sas) so that this planet & Creation can carry. Otherwise if it is the light of Allah almighty they will be totally melted, finished in the Ocean of Unity of Allah & not appear on this earth. And the Will of Allah almighty to appear because Allah almighty saying “I am a hidden treasure, My will is to be known, I created Creation so that they know Me by Me,” by Allah almighty. The first to appear in the divinely godly world of Allah almighty from the Word of Command was the divinely godly World of Light which was taking the picture & figure of Muhammad urRasulullah (sas). & Allah almighty then creating everything from light of Rasul(s), telling him, “O My Divinely World of Light If you are not, never would anything appear, I would not create anything. Through you they know Me & by Me they know Me. And for this everyone is invited to annihilate in Allah (swt) & Rasul (SAW) But he must change his state to another state change his humanity to another humanity.
Don’t remain with the humanity which is full of jealousy, enmity hatred, bad manners. No, change it to be a humanity of love, of respect – because “Allah perfected my manners and my discipline” – Rasul’s (s) hadith. Mawlana says, Rasulullah (s) starting with Sahaba, Ummah & all nations & all Children of Adam by saying Allah almighty ‘behaved’ me & He ‘well-behaved’ me. Which means Allah almighty dressed him by divinely, godly manners, godly soul, godly self. Dresssed him by godly light, by godly respect so that Rasulullah (sas) said, “O Mankind, respect each other. See the light of Allah almighty from which you are created, the soul of Allah almighty is in everyone of you. See Allah almighty in everyone of you & respect this light. Respect Allah who is with you as Allah almighty telling Musa (as) & his brother Harun (as) when they went to Firawn – “Go, don’t be scared, I am with you, Allah almighty with you, seeing, hearing. I am the one talking, not you. You are tools of Me. I am with you.” Allah almighty is with everyone as He says in Holy Quran: wa nahnu aqrabu ilayhi min hablil warid (50:16) I am so close to you, closer to you than your veins which is making the circulation of blood going on in you. “I am more close to you than your soul & your self. Only remember Me & realize Me.” And respect everyone because I am with everyone. Resect all, because I am the ‘All in all.’ This is the first teaching of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim when I was in seclusion with him in 1974.
At the end he told me wisdom of seclusion, “Respect all because Allah almighty is in all”, with everyone Allah almighty, & you are respecting Allah almighty. And Rasulullah (sas) once in the funeral of a Jew, was crossing the roads of Madinat al Munawwarah Rasulullah (sas) with Sahaba, stopped with adab until funeral passed & all Sahaba also behind him did as he did respecting & then they told Rasul (sas), he is Jewish, unbeliever. Why are you respecting him. He said no I am not respecting his kufr. I am not respecting his badness but the light of Allah almighty from which he is created. I am respecting the soul, which is the secret of Allah almighty over his coffin walking with him. For this I respect Allah almighty. I am not respecting his Jewishness no, I am respecting Allah almighty.
If Rasulullah (sas) like this teaching Sahaba, how about you, his Ummah? You are the Nation of Rasulullah (sas) and all of you searching for realities & spirituality. And Rasulullah (sas) says, I am the city of realities & secrets & Siddiq (ra) is the door of the city of wisdom & realities & secret. I am the city of knowledge & Sayyidina Ali (ra) is the door of city of knowledge. All of you are asking divine knowledge -ilm al ladunni. You are asking realities, spirituality & for Allah and Rasulullah (sas). And like this, Rasulullah kept this way for Sayyidina Abu Bakr (ra) to be till the end, Yawm al Qiyamah, and for Sultan al Awliya, to be in our time, Mawlana Shaykh (qs). He is the one representing the spirituality of Sayyidna Abu Bakr (ra) and spirituality of Rasulullah (sas).
The title Sultan al Awliya or Ghawth cannot be given to anyone not representing the spirituality of Rasulullah (sas) & Abu Bakr (ra). All 40 ways, their Imams, they reached taking their secrets from S. Ali, karramallahu wajh, until they reached the maqam to be busy with the divine world of names & attributes of Allah almighty. Why the Siddiqi Way, Naqshbandi Way, its Grandshaykhs & nowadays Sultan ul Awliya Mawlana shaykh (qs) till the time of Mahdi (as), till the time of Isa (as), is going to be the Imam & Shaykh of the Naqshbandi Way. He is making everyone who is searching & seeking for reality to reach, to be busy not with names & attributes but with Essence of Allah almighty. Because Siddiqi Way to be busy with the Essence of Allah almighty, with the lights of the Essence of Allah almighty, much higher than the world of names & attributes. All Imams like Sayyidina A-Qadir alJilani, Sayyidina Ahmed arRifai, Sayyidina Sh. Muhyuddin Ibn Arabi are very big awliyas & imams who not only used to shake the Earth but shake the Throne, even though they reached only the divine names & attributes.
Only Sayyidina Abu Bakr (ra) in between all Sahaba & for this he was known as Siddiq & all his descendents, grandshaykhs till Mawlana Shaykh, Sultan al Awliya, are ones who are busy with the Essence of Allah almighty. Rasulullah (sas) made them reach the maqam he reached in the Night Journey to make sujud in between the Hands of Allah almighty. Meeting the Divine Lights of Allah almighty while all other through Sayyidina Ali (ra) karramallahu wajh, reached the maqam of Sayyidina Jibril (as), Sidrat-al-Muntaha. Over Sayyidina Jibril (as) no one is allowed except Mawlana Shaykh Nazim, Grandshaykh & Sayyidina Abu Bakr (ra) to ascend with Rasulullah (sas) to make sujud, bowing on throne between the Hands of Allah almighty. And for this Rasulullah said, innamal amalu bi ‘niyat – all your deeds depend on intention. If your intention is good, Allah will reward you according to intention. innamal amalu bi’nniyat wa likulli imrin ma nawa faman kana hijratuhu ilallahi wa rasulih, fahijratuhu ilallahi wa rasulih wa man kana hijratuhu ila dunya yusibuha aw amratin yankihuha fahijratuhu ila ma hajr ilayh. Everyone according to his intention. If you immigrate to Allah almighty & Rasulullah – (sas) which means, if you immigrate from your bad manners, your inhmanity to dress by a godly body from Allah, to be a godly one; only you want Allah almighty & Rasulullah (sas), then you will be welcomed by Allah & Rasulullah (sas). And the guide in this way to reach you to that maqam is only one.
In every period of time there is only one Sultan al Awliya to make you reach that maqam & in this time it is Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (qs). If you accept or not accept, this is the Reality – this is what Rasulullah (s) announced in his holy assembly in Diwan and all awliya, all are under the order and under the respect of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim, all of them. Even Sahib al Zaman Mahdi (as) must respect & take his order from Mawlana Shaykh Nazim. It is like this. The big awliya, no one can balance them, no one can imagine in which situation or state they are. And the one immigrating, if his intention is for this decorated life, for collecting money, for making business, making good life for himself, or to get married, then his immigration according to his intention, it will not be for Allah almighty & Rasulullah (sas).
A big Grandshaykh in our Naqshbandi Way, I think, Mawlana says Sayyidina Ubaydullah Ahrar, how he got his secret and to be Sultan al Awliya in Naqshbandi Way. He was yet a murid to Sayyidina Yaqub al Charkhi & was yet studying Shariah also. He used to cross the roads & feel everything is created by the Hand of Allah almighty so I must respect Him, as Allah almighty created everything by His Light. And so if he saw a cat, or even a dog passing he stood by adab until they crossed the road & then continued walking. If he saw something, never by foot pushed it, but by hand put aside. For this adab Allah dressed him to be Gr.shaykh & Sultan in Naqshbandi Way. Even on the Day of Promises, before he came to this Earth, before coming to this life he was a Sultan, Gr.Shaykh in Naqshbandi Way. This good manner made him reach quickly to that in this life.
And like this, how about you? -Murids of Mawlana all over world. Don’t be in groups, don’t be split. Be one, loving and respecting each other. You are murids, the ones Allah blessed to know Mawlana Shaykh, to be in his Way. He is accepting us, this is a blessing from Allah. There are billions of people who don’t know Mawlana, only some millions who love Mawlana because Allah loved them & chose them to be in this Way. In the Way of Mawlana Shaykh, Grandshaykhs & S. Abu Bakr (ra) in the Way of Sayyidina Ali (ra) karramallahu wajh, in the Way Allah chose for Rasulullah (sas) in Holy Quran saying: waallawi istaqamu ala altariqati laasqaynahum ma’an ghadaqan (72:16) If they keep this Way which I chose for you My Beloved (sas) I will make them drink by a water by heavenly water, by Water of Life, godly Water of Life because My Throne before creation was on water. wa kana arshuhu ala’l ma’i (11:17) This Water of Life, only given to ones who are true in their intention, in their walking in the Way of Awliya Allah.
All of which is teaching good manners, respect & love. And this cannot be, except by yourself to change yourself. You cannot say ‘Allah will change me’, no, Allah will change you when you want to change yourself. Allah & Rasulullah (s) will change you but to follow shaytan & say ‘Allah will change me’, then never will Allah change you. And for this the dog of Ahlul Kahf, People of The Cave, was an animal but he had love in his heart to those who loved Allah almighty, respect and worshipping Allah almighty. What Allah did with this dog? He told them to kill him, throw him out? No, Allah almighty said ‘Keep him, don’t throw stones on him, but respect him, love him, keep this dog with you, because this dog, I am going to change him from dirtiness to purity & enter him to Jannah, Paradise with you. All animals will be sand Yawm al Qiyamah, except the dog of the People of The Cave. He is going to enter Jannah with them because he loved & respected the people who loved Allah almighty.
Good believers, how about you Mankind, Nation of Rasulullah (s)? If you love each other, love Mawlana, love Awliyul Allah, if you love & respect Rasulullah (sas) & Allah almighty, what do you think, where is He going to put you? But if shaytan enters between your hearts & splits you up & makes you groups to be against each other, then what do you think Allah is going to do with all of you? What do you think Rasulullah (sas) will be happy? Mawlana will be happy? Any father will be happy if his children are against each other? And for this don’t be against each other. Don’t be following ego & your shaytan -you are in the Right Way, in a way which all prophets before Rasulullah (sas) were asking Allah to keep them till the time of Sayyidina Mahdi (as) & to the end of the Nation of Rasulullah (sas). Because Allah almighty showing what He is going to dress this Ummah to the end of this nation. What Allah is going to dress what Allah will give them.
So all of them said “O Allah we don’t want prophecy, keep us to that time.” Allah said “No everyone will appear in his time.” And Allah almighty giving the last Ummah what cannot be imagined, even not opened in time of Sahaba these lights, these mercies, forgiveness, blessing, reward from Allah almighty. Until Rasulullah (sas) said, “Anyone who revives my Sunnah in the time when everyone kills my Sunnah he will be rewarded” good tidings of 100 shaheeds for every Sunnah. For the turban, between all Sahaba, only Sayyidina Abu Bakr (ra) he was Siddiq, Mawlana said, Rasul (s) told them at the end that when no one covering his head, anyone in prayer putting a turban, for every round of the turban he will dress by reward and good tidings of a Siddiq. As big as you make it you will have more & more maqam but don’t make it so big they think you a scholar, they will curse you, people. Because shaytan following ulama & making them attack sufi people, attacking awliya, because shaytan likes attacking. He knows that they are stealing from him the people making them enter Jannah & he tries to make them enter Jehennam. So he is behind the murids of all awliya Allah, specially the murids of Mawlana, to make them hate each other, to not respect & be against each other because he knows that by this he can steal the light of iman, the Light of Reality, the Light of spirituality from their hearts. He sees, he will not come to a ruin to steal it. He will come to a place that is full with jewels.
Your heart is full with jewels & for this shaytan always behind you. Allah almighty never leaving you and for this Allah almighty sending plenty of tests & burdens to clean you but the one who will be walking good, and he is straight in the way of Mawlana, Awliyallah of Rasulullah (s) & Allah, never will he have a burden on him; never will he suffer. Allah will take off all burdens & suffering. What Allah says in Holy Quran is like a loaf wama kana allahu liyu adhdhibahun wa anta fihim wama kana Allahu muadhdhibahum wahum yastaghfirun 8:33 Never Allah will punish them when you are between them Rasuls (s) light always between Ummah through G.Shaykh & Sayyidina Abu Bakr (r) & all inheritors to Yawm al Qiyamah & now he is between the Ummah by Maulana’s representing in this time. So he is between us & Allah, “I am never punishing your Ummah, My Beloved, if they are saying ‘Astaghfirullah’.” Which means they are always remembering Allah almighty, they are repenting to Allah that every breath of ours is sin coming from us. O Allah almighty forgive us, mercy on us, we say Astaghfirullah!” Allah says ‘Who says Astaghfirullah never will be punished by Me.’ Never will he have any sickness, never will he have any punishment. No burden on him, I am carrying the burden from him but remember Allah.
How you remember nowadays Allah, O Murids of Mawlana & all your groups? In every country you see 2, 3, 4, 5 groups. Even on internet you will see 5, 6, 10, 18, 20 groups. And everyone fighting the other. And they all say, “This Mawlana Shaykh ordering.” I don’t know where they are getting these orders from Mawlana Shaykh? I think Mawlana Shaykh in pocket of everyone when they want, take him out “..this we do Mawlana?” ‘Eh, do good!’ And the smart ones between them don’t want to attack by themselves. They find some murids around them, they put the internet in their names. And they start to fight through the names of different ones around them. And like this all over the world. Why? Allah is one, Rasulullah (s) is one, Mawlana is one, our Islam is one. Why fighting? What do you want, everyone? To be shaykh? Make shaykh. Who is telling you not to make shaykh? Want to be awliya? You come to feet of Mawlana Shaykh, to be on his door, to respect, love him, to be like a dog on his door, then you will be awliya. Like this be given.
You must respect everyone. You must respect the lowest one & the highest one, the rich one & the poor one to be the same level to you because they are related to Mawlana, Naqshbandi Way, to Islam & Rasul (s), to Allah almighty. Then if He likes He will dress you by Light of Wilayah. Light of Wilayah in the Hand of Allah almighty, not in books, or in the hand of anyone, no. Allah almighty keeping Jannah in His Hand. Whenever He wants He will enter him to Jannah. You cannot force Allah almighty to enter you to Jannah? No, but you can do by the people of Jannah Allah almighty will enter you. If He doesn’t want He will not enter you. To Allah almighty same, Light of Wilayah, do like Awliya, imitate them respect, love, be good with everyone, always repent to Allah almighty. If He wants will dress you by Light of Wilayah, if not will not dress you. You can’t force Allah fa aalun lima yurid (11:107) Allah almighty will do whatever He wants. No one can force Allah almighty to do according to himself, what he wants from Allah almighty, no. Allah almighty is always with the weak one, with the poor one.
Allah Almighty is with the generous one, with the humble one. He is with everyone who loves & respects His Creation. All creations, human beings, malaikah, jinn, animals, plants, trees. And respect them seeing that Allah almighty created them and for the sake of Allah almighty I am respecting them. Rasulullah (s) saying, man tawada li’Llah rafahullah – The one who humbles himself to Allah almighty Allah almighty will raise him up & dress him by Lights of Wilayah. How to be humble to Allah almighty? Anyone can reach Allah almighty? Show me Allah almighty. You cannot because if someone says show me the soul in your body can you show him the soul? How you are going to show anyone Allah almighty who is like the soul, with everyone Allah almighty. Can’t see Him in this life, but in Akhirah. When no more this Humanity, only Lights of Allah almighty, dressed by this Humanity will appear Yawm al Qiyamah by the Eyes of Allah almighty you can see Allah. By the eyes of physical body, never can anybody see Allah almighty. Rasulullah (s) said, in the Night Journey when he met Allah almighty, he saw by the Eyes of Allah almighty, ‘By the Eyes of Allah almighty I saw. Not by my eyes, by His Eyes I saw Him.
For this, how to respect Allah almighty so He may raise you up? Is it by this? Or keeping yourself practicing Buddhism and all this worshipping 9 points, & 15 points, & 20 points, I don’t know how many points, by this you will reach, or by Yoga. By all this you reach Allah almighty, respect Allah almighty? No no, no. As Rasul (s) says, as Mawlana teaching us, how to respect Allah almighty; how to be humble to Allah almighty; how to show humbleness to Him? When you will show humbleness for the Creation of Allah almighty, when you are humble to all Children of Adam (as) then this humbleness goes to Allah almighty. The humbleness from you to everyone of the Children of Adam (as), humbleness even to animals, humbleness to everything Allah created. If you will be humble enough, showing humbleness, respect & love then this humbleness goes to Allah almighty. Like this Mawlana says, & Rasulullah (sas) in the hadith & then Allah will dress you by Light of Wilayah & Realities, you will be then matured in spiritual way.
Sayyidina Musa (as) was one of the 5 highest prophets. Even though Allah’s order, “O Musa (as) what you did for Me? By what did you serve Me?” I am fasting, I am praying, I am giving Your message to people, I am spreading Islam between Your people. He told him, “All this benefit is coming to you. What are you doing for Me? By what are you serving Me?” Sayyidina Musa (as) was so surprised, “O Allah almighty You must help us. How am I going to serve you?” But he forgot to ask Allah almighty how to serve Him. He was not able to answer Allah almighty. Then Allah almigthy told him, “O Ya Musa, I will answer. You know when you will serve Me? When you will do something for Me?” Yes, tell me Allah almighty, teach me what to do, how to serve You. To bring for You some water? To bring for You some food? How to serve You? He told him, “When you serve Children of Adam (as). When you serve My Creation, then you are serving Me. This coming to me Ya Musa (as), serving each other.” Whatever you do for each other by serving, anyone who has somethng & his brother in Naqshbandi Way, in Islam can help him & he helps him then this serving goes to Allah almighty. This serving Allah & Rasul (s). Whenever Children of Adam (as) serve each other, this means serving Allah almighty. When they are stealing from each other, talking behind the back, when they are against each other, they are against Allah & Rasul (sas).
Then Allah almighty wants to test Sayyidina Musa (as). He sent to him a 90-95 year old priest. He was against Sayyidina Musa (as) cursing him all the time. He came to Sayyidina Musa (as) one day, knocking on the door. Sayyidina Musa (as) opened the door, he told him ‘I need a hammer to use’. He said, ‘You are Kafir, go out!’ He kicked him out, closed the door. Allah talked to him, “O Musa, he is 95 years old. I am giving him food. I am serving him. I am curing him. I am giving him his dress. I am not saying he is non-believer? I am not saying he is Kafir, a priest against you? I give him everything. He needs from you one thing, you kicked him out & closed the door on his face. Is prophecy telling you to do so? I teach you to do so? O Musa, by My Almightiness, if you don’t ask excuse & apologise to him I will kick you out of Prophecy. So Sayyidina Musa (as) took the hammer & was following, running. Sayyidina Musa (as) had a huge body, was sweating, until he reached him. Running, saw the sweat coming… “O Priest, forgive me, excuse me. This is the hammer take it.’ He said, ‘I am not taking now.’ While you were relaxed, in comfort in your house I came to you for hammer. You cursed me, closed door, kicked me out & said I will not serve a Kafir. Now you are running after me to give me what I need?’ And you are a big prophet, with huge body, sweating, coming behind kafir like me, as you say? I don’t want. “Please take it, forgive me.” He said ‘I will take it & forgive but I want the wisdom of it.’ Sayyidina Musa told him, ‘I was blamed by Allah almighty, telling me this Kafir, Allah will not say Kafir, this old, 95 year old priest I am not looking at him as a non-believer. I am dressing, curing him, giving him food, sending mercy on him, giving him everything in this life, in other life, another thing and you represent Me Musa (as). He needs something, you will not serve him? If you serve him you are serving Me. And for this Allah is ordering me to follow you & apologise to you.’ He told him like this, God, Allah almighty and ‘I say, ashhadu an la ilaha ila’Llah wa ashhadu anna Musa Rasulullah.’ Like this Mawlana is teaching. If we love & respect each other even a non-believer will enter Islam. You will be good example for people. But when you split yourself & are enemy to each other and everyone following his mind & ego then who will follow this Way? But Alhamdulillah Allah is protecting. He says I descended the dhikr which means the Holy Quran & all the spiritual teachings I protect. If I am leaving it in between your hands. Children of Adam, you will be sick, you will will melt away. So the advice is to love & respect each other, to love Mawlana Shaykh & all awliya – to love everyone Allah created & serve, be humble with everyone. Then this turning & humbleness will go to Allah & Rasulullah (sas). May Allah almighty forgive us & bless us & give mercy to us & make us in the right way of Mawlana Shaykh & G.Shaykh Abdullah & Sayyidinas Abu Bakr, Uthman, Umar & Ali (ra) & Fatima Zahra (ra) & way of Rasulullah (s), Islam & iman until we meet him & he is pleased with us. O Allah give curing and health to Mawlana Shaykh, give him long life & make him to reach time of S.Mahdi & S.Isa (as) & make us reach with him. Make us love, respect & be good with each other, respect all who are related to Mawlana & all who have bayat with him. And to respect & serve all Ummah of Rasul (sas).
O Allah almighty make us reach time of S. Mahdi (as) S. Isa (as). Dress us by sincerity & Lights of Your Holy Face O Allah almighty. Lighten our hearts by the love of You, of Rasulullah (sas), by Your Holy Face, by Rasulullah lights & love of Ahlul Bayt & Companions of Rasul (sas). Dress us by the lights of Mawlana Shaykh & G.Shaykh & all G.Shaykhs. O Allah almighty & make us sincere awliya to you, sincere followers to Sahib al Zaman, Mahdi (as). Bi hurmat al Habib, bi hurmat al Fatiha. Assalamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu.
