A short video clip of the barn cats and sheep being milked.

Wednesday night, our Sheykh was in in a humorous mood (Jamal). Evrybody was laughing hard. Thursday night, Sheykh was in a more serious station (Jalal). The sohbet, which coincides with our needs and events around us, was concentrated on Patience. Sheykh said we were not ready to hear about Miraj – Saturday night – so Sheykh Mevlana sent this for him to talk about.

Yesterday was pretty special. We found our goatie hiding in the Chicken Coop. Somehow, he found a way to break in. The night sky was the clearest I have ever seen in my life.

Sheykh explained a couple of things. The Big Dipper’s seven stars represent the seven Qutubs that are responsible for this world. These are among the fourty. The Little Dipper’s seven represent the women saints.

The Milky Way’s ring has been clear for nights now. We took a good look last night and even saw shooting stars. Sheykh said the blessing was raining down.

Milky Way Ring

Some of us slept out in our sleeping bags, under the stars. You can’t even count them. But watching them is good medicine for mental distress.

We were fasting today. It wasn’t easy on some of us. We might have lost a goat in the field and it’s raining now.

Sohbet from Sunday 21 Muharram 1427
February 19, 2006

O our Lord- save our souls!

Meded, ya Sultanu-l Anbiya
Meded, ya Sultanu-l Awliya
Meded, ya RijalaLlah!
A´udhu bi-Llahi mina shaytani rajim
Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim
La haula wa la quwatta illa bi-llahi-l ‘Aliyu-l ‘Adhim.

As-salamu alaikum!

It is a short association and we are trying to follow the ways of
holy people. And who is living on earth – billions of people are
living – they are two kinds of people: Holy ones and unholy ones.

I was once passing through Switzerland on my way from London to
Cyprus. There is a famous monastery, St.Nicolaus (von der Flüe),
always (when) I am passing, his spirituality was asking me to
come closer and he was taking familiarity from my spirituality.
I was passing and coming there, stopping and visiting the
monastery and his tomb also.

Once I was there, just I visited and (I was) coming out, a person
(was) coming and he said that: “I am priest of this monastery”
and I was addressing to him: “Your holiness.” He said to me:
“I am not a holy one. If you are saying ‘holiness’, holiness
inside, buried there, but I am ordinary priest, I am not holy
one.” I said to him: “What about Pope?” “He is not also a holy
one; he is also a person that appointed by some group of
religious people (that) we are saying ‘Cardinals’ (for them).
Holiness that is a grant and blessing from Heavens. Whom they
are appointed by someones on earth, they are not holy ones.
‘Holiness’ is a rank that (is) granted from Heavens to the Lord
of Heavens’ servants.” I said: “What you are speaking, it is
true. When they are appointed by governments, they can’t be
holy ones.”

To be ‘(His) Holiness’ that is something belongs to Heavens; that
is not a reward or such a thing that people may give to anyone.
Yes, I may dress like dress of Popes or Saints – their clothes
is holy clothes, as we are looking – but inside, no. Don’t think
if a person dressing what dresses (a) holy man, (he is)going to
be (a) holy one, no! Clothes we are understanding, but not that

We are speaking on that point [so] that people must know some of
them are holy ones, and mostly they are ordinary people.

For example: Can’t be a person King, (even) if he is going to
dress King’s dressing; even putting on his head a crown, he is
not going to be a King, no!

But now (this is) through whole nations and people are not
asking who is holy one or not. They are not understanding
what is (the) mission of (the) holy ones. People now (are)
going to be (all) on the same line – that their mission (is)
to work for Dunya. Who (is) working for Dunya, he is not a
holy one, no. Who (is) working for his Lord, he is holy one.
Holy one is a clean person, no dirtiness on them for Dunya,
no. But who [is] working for Dunya, they are all of them just
going to be dirty from Dunya. You may say, there is a pond; who
is swimming in that pond, clean one, he is clean, but who [is]
falling in[to] a dirty pond, he should be dirty. Dunya is dirty
and we are not created for Dunya, no, we are created for the
Lord’s servanthood.

Who choosing to be servant of his Lord, his life is clean and he
is reaching through his cleanliness his Lords Divine Presence.
Clean ones. Who [is] choosing Dunya, all of them just coming in
a dirty pond and they should be left through that dirty place.
It is so clear, so clear!

All Prophets that came, that have been sent, they are all of them
chosen ones, they are saying [the] same thing. Don’t think Adam –
´alayhi salâm – was saying other words that what we say now. Don’t
think Noah – ´alayhi salâm – was calling his people to another
station. Don’t think Abraham – ´alayhi salâm – and his sons,
grandsons and lines of Prophets through 12 tribes – thousands of
Prophets -, don’t think they were calling people to Dunya, no,
but they were calling them to be for their Creator, the Lord
of Heavens: “Come and be servants for your Lord Allah Almighty!”
Shaytan calling people: “No, you must try… you must run after
Dunya and you must try to enjoy your physical being with so
many things from Dunya!” Shaytan’s calling that.

All Prophets just called!

Now we are living in a time [when] there is a Muslim world (and)
there is a Non-Muslim world; Non-Muslim world means Christian
world and then Jewish world – that they are also Book-given-
people, all of them – and there are so many millions or billions
people, they are never taking care or never interesting in Holy
Books and following some ‘ways from old time‘. And now the
representatives of Muslim world, the representatives of
Non-Muslim world, the representatives of Christians, the
representatives of Jewish faith, all of them [are] never
getting a power for defeating Satan from people. Satans power
coming over their powers! They are in such a way that their faith
[is] not enough for defending [the] Truth – and the Lord of
Heavens sent all Prophets and their real inheritors, (as)
defenders of Truth.

And Truth [is] coming from Heavens. Truth is not from earth; the
Balance of Truth [is] coming from Heavens. Every balance that
they are doing now – nations and their religious people -,
their balance [is] from earth, therefore they are not able to
make defence or to be defenders of Truth. They are following
their egoistic interests; they are interesting only for Dunya
and can’t be able to be defenders of Truth.

First of all that we must do our defence to make people to believe
in [the] Lord of Heavens, their Creator, and secondly we must do
our defence for defending that: “O people, take your true ways
according (to the) Rules of Heavens that just had been sent
through His chosen people, honoured people that they are Prophets!”

We are not saying: “How we are going to be defenders of Truth?”
Therefore, Truth – now perhaps [there are] 6 billion people – you
can’t find even one million people to be real defenders for Truth.
That means: all our destinations through wrong heads that are not
knowing [the] true destination of mankind; and we are accepting
them and following them and we are going to be defenders for
Shaytan, defenders for Shaytanic ideas. Now people [are]
defenders of satanic ideas and works and activities, [so] that
what they are doing, [is] carrying Heavenly cursing on[to] earth!
What do you think now today through East and West, from North to
South? [Do] you think Heavenly Blessings [are] coming on earth or
cursing [is] coming? Cursing [is] coming, because we are not
defenders of Truth, not following Prophets and their real
inheritors. That is it, nothing else!

People running to do this, to do that, to stop this…stopping that
and beginning another cursing there, coming another… Every day and
night another kind of cursing coming, unexpected… Unexpected, until
they are saying: “O our Lord, save ourselves!”

If a ship [is] going to sink, giving announcement: “SOS…SOS…SOS!“
Calling. What does it mean SOS? “O people, we are going to die,
save our souls!”

Not your souls! [They should be] saying: “SOB, SOB, SOB!“ It is
better, because people can’t say, ordinary people can’t say
‘souls‘. [They] may say: “(Save our) bodies“ – without souls.
Why not sending – they are sending that announcement through four
directions – (and) calling: “O people, we are in a dangerous
position. [The] ocean [is] going to swallow our ships and ourselves!
Please, quickly reach to ourselves and save our bodies!” Not souls!
Why [are they] not saying [it], these people, 21st century people?
Why not sending their announcement: “O our Lord, save our souls?”
Why not saying?

People [are] running through [the] streets, Muslim people, for a
nonsense person drawing. That is Islamic way? No! Why not going to
mosque and saying: “O our Lord, You said, You promised for Your
Beloved Servant that You are going to be Guarantor for him! Please,
send us armies from Heavens, as You did some time (ago as) we are
believing. Send us to destroy their technology, their nuclear
weapons, send us to destroy their whole nuclear bombs!” Why not
saying? On streets, burning cloth (flags)! That is Islam? That
[is the] saying [of] our Prophet and our Holy Book? Written in such
a way? Allah knows!

Therefore I am saying that I heard a punishment is coming for the
inhabitants of this world: One punishment for Non-Muslims, seven
punishments for Muslims, because they lost their way! Keep
yourself! Run and ask holy ones! One holy one may shelter you,
but 1000 regiments cannot shelter you. That is the head of crises
and that is its treatment. May Allah forgive me…

Therefore ? coming, I am saying: “O our Lord, send us Your Sultan!”
Sultan means: who has Heavenly Power!

I was in Damascus at the end of the Second War – no one was born
from you – and the French forces were bombarding from Mezze; it
was a center of army, protected with everything. They were
bombarding Damascus and we looked and [we] saw that one shell
[was] coming on Sayyidina Yahya, Yahya’s tomb, just appeared
a hand, taking that shell and throwing away. And I was also
looking in Homs, [a] famous place in Syria [in the] time of
Christians and after Christians, Muslims – they were bombarding
from Qal´a, sheltered place, and army there and bombarding. I was
in Sayyidina Khalid ibn Walid’s mosque – Allah bless him – also
coming a shell. Passing and they were taking as their target to
destroy that holy tomb of Prophets people, Sayyidina Khalid ibn
Walid radiyaLlahu ´anh. Only one piece coming on minaret and
falling down. I was there. That shell passed away.

We have power! We are not weak people! Now – we are weak people,
but inheritors of Prophets have such power! But people are not
believing in holy ones. They are finished…

Therefore every day one punishment on Islamic world coming, coming,

May Allah forgive us and bless you for the honour of the most
honoured one in His Divine Presence, Sayyidina Muhammad –
sallaLlahu ´alayhi wa sallam,
