Hadrat Hussein (as)

Let us remember the martyrdom of the grandsons of the Prophet (saw) in Karbala on Ashura Day, the tenth of Muharram. Specially that of Imam Husayn. He and 72 members of the Ahli Beyt, the descendants of the Prophet (saw) were massacred in Kerbala, in today’s Iraq, by Yazid’s army of 30,000.

It is sunna to fast on this day and either the day prior or after.

The struggle between Haqq and Batil continues to this day. May Allah hold us firm on the way of Truth against Falsehood and the likes of Yazidi tyrants.

Amin.

عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من صلى يوم عاشوراء أربع ركعات يقرأ في كل ركعة فاتحة الكتاب و “قل هو الله أحد”، احدى عشر مرة غفر الله له ذنوب خمسين عاما، وبنى له منبرا من نور ومن اغتسل به لم يمرض تلك السنة الا مرض الموت ومن اكتحل فيه لم يرمد تلك السنة قال النسفي أي ترمد عينا قلبه

و دعا يوم عاشوراء، تقرآ ٧٠ مرة حسبنا الله ونعم الوكيل نعم المولى ونعم النصير، وتدعو بهذا الدعاء ٧ مرات: سبحان الله ملء الميزان ومنتهى العلم ومبلغ الرضا وزنة العرش لا ملجأ ولا منجا من الله الا اليه سبحان الله عدد الشفع والعرش وعدد كلمات ربنا التامات كلها. أسألك السلامة برحمتك يا أرحم الراحمين، ولا حول ولا قوة الا بالله العلي العظيم وهو حسبي ونعم الوكيل نعم المولى ونعم النصير وصلى الله على سيدنا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه أجمعين. وقبل أذان المغرب ليوم عاشوراء بساعة تجلس مستقبل القبلة وتبدأ باكمال أدب الطريقة أي الأدب اليومي. ثم تتوسل بسيدنا الحسين وشهداء كربلاء، حيث في هذا اليوم استشهد سيد شباب أهل الجنة امامنا ومولانا سبط سيد العالمين سيد أبي عبد الله الحسين ومعه من الصحابة والتابعين، رضوان الله عليهم أجمعين. وبعد الافطار تودع صيامك وأورادك عند النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم في خزانته وفي يوم الرابع العشر من محرم الحرام يصادف مولد سيدنا شاه النقشبند امام الطريقة ومن الستحب لأهل الطريقة النقشبندية في هذه الليلة أن يجتمعوا للختم والذكر وقراءة مولد النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم. هدية لسيدنا شاه النقشبندي. وكان سلطان الأولياء يذبح قرابين لله تعالى في يوم عاشوراء فداء عن الأمة المحمدية وأهل الطريقة النقشبندية وكذلك في مولد شاه النقشبند

Amin. Amin. Alhamdulillah. Alhamdulillah. Wa Shukur Allah. Wa Astaghfirullah.

We are thanking – sit comfortably. Don’t sit too tight. Move out [a] little bit. Sit comfortably. Put your feet. Listen. Sit comfortable, listen comfortable. When you’re sitting tight, then everything will be tight.

We are the people of Ahir Zaman, the End of the Time. And we are the ones that who came, not in the beginning but in the end. From Adam (aleyhis selam) time up till Holy Prophet (aleyhis salatu wasselam). [One] Hundred twenty four thousand prophets came. Only for one purpose: To guide people from this World to Allah (subhanahu wata’ala). For people not to get stuck and to get fooled by this World. Allah (subhanahu wata’ala) have created the man. He loved them and he created. And saying, “La sharika lah: I have no partner. And what I give order to you, you must keep. What the order I put on you, it is good for you. It is for your benefit, not for Me.” He’s saying, “If you all sit together [for] twenty-four hours. Leave everything and twenty-four hours a day, if you sit and you praise Me, it’s not enough. I have created so many creatures that they’re sitting and they’re praising Me.” Non-stop. That is their job, only. And no one knows the beginning, when Allah created those. It is not possible for a man to know that knowledge.

Two knowledge[s]. One is the knowledge that is staying in Divine Presence, and Allah has that knowledge only. He’s not sharing that with anyone. The second knowledge, that He share[d] with His prophets and with the Evliya Allah. The third one, He’s sending to normal ordinary people. And He’s sending us the prophets and His friends to show us the way. Because we get stuck in this World. We get fooled by this World. We get fooled by our ego. We get fooled by Sheytan. So He’s constantly reminding us from the time of Adam (aleyhis selam) until Holy Prophet (aleyhis salatu wasselam) through the prophets. Holy Prophet (aleyhis salatu wasselam), he’s the seals of prophets. No more prophets coming. Fourteen hundred year ago, over fourteen hundred years ago, he came to this world and he passed. And until Judgment Day, no more prophet coming. And Allah (subhanahu wata’ala) saying to whole mankind, “What I sent it to you through that Prophet, what I sent it to you through that book, it is enough for all of you to hold on tightly, to that book, to that Prophet, to find the way. Otherwise, if you are following the roads that is leading you to Sheytan, to Jehennem.

Those people who’s not believing in Allah (subhanahu wata’ala) they run to have activities in this World, they run to do so many things. And they turn this World into a Hell. Everyone now – before it was twelve hours a day. Now, twenty hours a day running to work. Twenty, seven days, three hundred sixty five days a year, still not enough. If you are working twenty four hours a day and three hundred sixty five days a year, still not going to be enough. It is impossible for a man to do that. It is impossible. But Allah (subhanahu wata’ala) is giving us an order saying to us, “Hold on tightly [to] what I have sent to you, I will make your life easy. Your knowledge is only limited to that.” But He says, “I have my knowledge that I am sending it to you.” Don’t think that you get up and you go to work and you are earning and you are making something. Allah is giving you the power to be able to do that. If He pulls it away, finish. You cannot do nothing now.

Don’t worry so much what is around you and who you’re taking care. It is our obligation to run after those people that they are under our authority to try to make it better for them. But we must not forget our duty to Allah (subhanahu wata’ala). When you are forgetting that duty, that time the Sheytan and this Dunya non-stop is forcing you to go to different directions. So when the man is going to different direction, he’s becoming disobedient to his Lord. Man, when he becomes disobedient to Allah (subhanahu wata’ala), everything around him becomes disobedient to him. When the man becomes obedient to Allah, everything around Allah makes that one to be obedient to him. This is the knowledge that [is] coming to us through prophets. And anyone who follow[s] that, they win Dunya and Ahiret. Anyone who left, that Dunya life that they had even if they collected, they were not able to spend it properly. Millions of people today and [the] majority of people today on the face of earth, they don’t have the poverty that it was happening [a] hundred years ago. [A] hundred years ago, people they didn’t have a piece of bread to eat. They didn’t have proper clothes to wear. They were staying on the Sirati Mustaqim, on the Right Road.

Today’s people living like kings. Yes, the one in welfare is living like a king. Because the kings, when we go back seven hundred, eight hundred years ago, [a] thousand years ago, two thousand year[s] ago, the kings, they didn’t have this luxury. Touch here, have the light. Touch here, have air-condition[ing]. Touch there have heat. Now, no longer touching too. Everything works automatically for you. Allah [is] giving this knowledge to a man saying to you, “Look, look you [are] working with this, I’m making this life easy for you. Earning is easy. The food is enough in this world that is coming out not to feed only these people on earth, maybe three times more. But still people [are] hungry. Still people [are] thirsty. Still people, they are in debts twenty-four hours a day. Only one reason: Because we broke our relationship with our Lord. We destroy[ed] that relationship. As of individual, as of jamiat, the group of people, as of nations. Our leaders, the nation leaders, [are] running only top speed also for the World. They [are] not running to make it better for this mankind. To prepare something for them for better, for the service of Allah (subhanahu wata’ala). So when we are seeing that our own children, or our friends, and our loved ones, they become disobedient to us, it is not too happiness to us. We get very sad. And it is the nature of man, must be sad. Do you think that Allah (subhanahu wata’ala) is not sad because you are disobedient to him? Because we are disobedient to him. We must think on it. We must force our self to think on it.

So Allah (subhanahu wata’ala) have created everything on this earth, on this world. He has created and he’s continuously creating everything in Paradise. And He’s saying to us, “I have created everything on earth for your service.” For man’s service. Everything on this earth is serving us. Because Allah gave [an] order to them. So they are serving us. From the animals, to all material, they [are] serving the man. And He’s saying to us, “Only one thing I want from you. I have created you for my service. Everything else around you is going to be under your service, you [are] going to be under My service. And My service – for you to be under My service – I made it very easy for you. You [are] just going to remember Me. Nothing else. Remembering Me, I will be remembering you. When you are forgetting about Me, I will be forgetting you. For you forgetting Me, it is not [the] same [as] for Me forgetting you. Once I will forget you – Oh, our Lord, in these Holy Days we are asking, don’t forget us. Amin. And don’t make us to forget You. Amin. First we must make [the] move to say, “Ya Rabbi, we are Your servants. We are weak ones. We are doing so many wrong things. Accept this weakness, that You are the One who gave this weakness to us also. Accept from us.” That’s the only thing He wants from us. Nothing else. We go out of our way, to say, “I love you. I love you my baby. I love you my child. I love you my husband. I love you my wife. I love you my mother. I love you my father. I love you my grandmother.” I love. Love, love, love. When it comes to Allah, we [are] not remembering. He’s the one Who gives us everything. When it comes to [the] Holy Prophet, we [are] not remembering. He says, “I have created you for that one’s sake. So you must keep that one above everything. When you keep, in your hearts, first My love and the love of your Prophet, everything around you, I will make it to love you. All those that who’s going to love Me, they [are] going to love you. And they [are] going to obey you.”

He’s giving us a very easy formula to follow. But we are going out of our way and making trouble to our own self. And that trouble is hurting us. He doesn’t want to hurt us. And He’s saying to us, “You [are] doing so many mistakes. It’s OK. I am Ghaffar. Ask Me. Just ask Me, I will forgive you. It is easy for Me to forgive you. All you have to do, you have to ask Me.” Don’t be like Sheytan. Sheytan became disobedient to Allah (subhanahu wata’ala), and he turned around and he became arrogant and stubborn. Until today, he’s not asking forgiveness. If he asks right now [for] forgiveness, He will forgive him. At this time. He’s not asking, being more arrogant, more stubborn. And that is bringing him to the Fire. When the man is following that same characteristics, that road is leading him to the Fire too. But we cannot bare this fire. It’s not possible. If you want, put your hand there (on the wood stove). I am guaranteeing you, leave everybody else. If you keep your hand there, you worrying so much, only fifty minutes. [As] soon as the fifty minutes finish, fifty thousand dollars cash to your hand. And I’m giving you that promise right here from this Hutbe place, to see, which man is capable to do that. But we [are] thinking, that now we are able to run here and there, that we [are] going to be able to run that time?

Whatever we are preparing to our self, that’s what we [are] going to find. As in this Dunya. Whatever we prepare for our self, that’s what we [are] going to find. That’s what we are finding. We need food [a] little bit later. We have to prepare. We have to find, we have to cook, we have to put, and we have to eat. That’s what we prepare. If you prepare only cereal. Mashallah. Now, easy lifestyle saying, “Cereal.” Put some milk, some who knows what kind of nonsense in there. Eat. fill yourself up. Breh, the animals like it more better. They like to eat grain and corn. They will be very happy when you give to them. So, we don’t even know how to treat our self anymore. Those who has everything, they cannot know how to eat, they cannot know how to sleep. They have the houses, that not fitting only two person[s]. It will fit five thousand people inside. Two person[s] is fighting in that house. Non-stop, saying, “Don’t come to this room. I don’t want to see you.” They [are] running in that house, [in the] opposite direction. What’s between them? Sheytan only. Nothing else. Remove Sheytan, put Allah, [and] look how the love is going to come. Non-stop. And that love is never going to end. [It is] always, going to increase. Never going to decrease. The love of Dunya is decreasing. And we have no choice, but we have to leave this World. We have to – we are running top speed. Something is pushing us behind us. Every single day that is coming, and [it] is passing. [As] soon as we came out from the mother’s stomach out, something is pushing us, saying, “Walk this way. That way. Because the end of this road is the cemetery. Hmm, you go through different stages, but the cemetery is waiting. We must prepare something to that place. And you must believe. Because if you are not believing, you are not living [a] nice comfortable life in this Dunya. Not [a] nice comfortable life [in the] Hereafter. Nothing can save us that time.

So, Allah (subhanahu wata’ala) loved us and He has created us. And He made so many special dates in this world for us. And saying to us, “You are weak servants, you [are] running after this Dunya. You are getting fooled by this Dunya. Just show proper respect to these days, I will forgive you again. Look how easy He’s making it for us. Eh, because today fall – today Eid – it fall on Monday, off, millions of Muslims they [are] not going to Eid prayer too. They say, “I have to work.” Mashallah. Breh, what you did working three hundred and sixty four days? Huh? Don’t work one day! Keep that proper respect for that day, look what happens to you that time. Just one day. Easily Allah opens another door. They [are] running. Because the boss – big boss – big boss of Dunya, Sheytan [is] saying, “Tsk, come to my service. Must be. Leave that day too. It didn’t fall to Sunday. Don’t you see? Hmm, it fall [on] Monday. Come here. Ha-ha. Haa. Allah is testing us through that way too. It would be very easy falling on those days and everyone packing the masjids. But because we are living [in] the Last Days, and Allah (subhanahu wata’ala) [is] testing us. Testing us through that way saying, “Let’s see what My servants they [are] going to do. Are they going to make one more step forward?” He’s saying to His angels. And if one makes one more step forward, He gets so happy saying, “That, My servant just made one more step forward.” He gets so happy with that one. He gets happy saying to His angels, saying, “You see, when I tell you when I was going to created this man, and you told me, ‘Ya Rabbi, are You going to send, place somebody on this earth that they [are] going to put bloodshed? And they [are] not going to obey You. We are obeying and loving and respecting You non-stop. That is our duty.’ And Allah said to them, “You only know the knowledge that I teach you. You don’t know beyond that. I’m going to have people among them that no matter how this Dunya is going to hold them tightly, they [are] going to find time for Me at least – at least – one day a year they [are] going to find.” And Allah is very happy with them. You should be happy. Those who’s leaving all that for this day, at least, because saying, “This is a Holy Celebration.”

“You must come,” says the King. Giving [an] order saying, “All the subjects under My authority [are] not working today. Every one must be coming to [the] palace, to my palace. And I am giving them free meals. They have to celebrate. And I’m going to give them presents.” What will happen if one of the person in that Kingdom saying, “No I’m not going to the invitation to that King.”? Hmm, King saying to his deputy, saying, “Collect them properly, their names. The one[s] [that] didn’t come, come to me after the Celebration.” They come after the Celebration saying, “Oh our King, this, this, this people didn’t came to Your invitation.” “Now go and bring them by force.” When they came by force, “You became disobedient to Me? Put them in punishment.” This is what we [are] doing. This is what Allah is saying to us: “Come for Celebrations.” And we say, “No! I am busy.” Busy with what? “Sheytan [is] holding me.” We must leave that. That is our enemy. That is the biggest enemy that we have. We must know who’s the enemy. The animals they [are] not our enemy. That is our enemy. We have to watch out. Because that one [is] kicked away from Divine Presence. He’s very jealous. Jealous from a mankind.

So Allah (subhanahu wata’ala) created these days for us. If we hold it tightly He’s saying, “I have created you the most perfect creatures. And in this Dunya you have two Celebrations. Those people who’s fasting the Ramazan and end of the Ramazan: “You have two reward[s]. One after Ramazan, this time, Eid celebrations you [are] making. Second one when you are entering to the Paradises. Thos people who keeps those orders, I have more special gifts to them in that Paradises. We are must celebrating more because we are Alhamdulillah on top of this mountain. Only three years ago, there was not a single Muslim living in this general area. We worked very hard. Every one of you did something. We worked. Alhamdulillah we are receiving the blessings and the rahmet of that work. Anyone who did just a drop of thing, moving one thing from here to there, they are in that work. They [are] getting the reward. They [are] getting the blessing. Another big blessing is – not to forget – so many doesn’t know.

One time [the] Holy Prophet (aleyhis salatu wasselam) came back from [a] big war. He was pretty old now, physically pretty tired. And he came to the masjid. All his clothes [in] dust. He came from war. He make two-rekat prayer. And he sit thinking. His beloved daughter Hazreti Fatima enter[ed] saying, “Oh my father, all your life you never rest. When will you be resting?” He looked at her saying, “My daughter, you see the sun?” She said, “Yes.” He says, “As this sun is entering to every house in this world, until the Islam, the nur of Islam, the light of Islam is not entering to every house in this world, there will be no rest for us.” And she says, “How that will be, oh my father?” He says, “It’s very soon [that] I’m going out from this world, but I will leave my representatives in this world, my deputies in this world, that they will carry that job. When their time is up they will go resting, angels taking them, they [are] going out from this world. Resting place. They will leave other deputies in this world until the light of Islam is going to enter to every house in this world. Alhamdulillahi Rabbil Alemin. Allah (subhanahu wata’ala) had blessed us, every one of us. None of us here, none of you here, those who came from Muslim countries came here to spread Islam. No. [You] came for Dunya. But some way some how, Allah (subhanahu wata’ala)’s mercy and love reached to us. And direct[ed] us to this way. And every one of us, whatever we are doing, just a drop of water we are doing here and there, we will be the deputies of that Prophet (aleyhis salatu wasselam). We will be a reason, for the light of Islam to entering to other houses. At least the word is entering to other houses.

We have to be careful, as of Muslims. We have no fear, from the governments, from the police, from others. We have fear from Allah (subhanahu wata’ala). But we have to be careful with our activities, with our doings, and with our actions in these communities. That they [are] all believing in different faiths. When they look at us, they must say, “Yes, these are good people. Yes, these people, although that we don’t know what [are] doing, what they [are] wearing, how – but they [are] good people.” This is what you have to do. You have to go out of your way to speak with them properly, not to say, “You are wrong.” This is not our job. Our job is to show them that Islam is right. Properly. In the way that Holy Prophet (aleyhis salatu wasselam) had taught us. Not to go to fight and argue. But to show them with our action[s], show them with our lifestyle, show them with our care. Show everything. To show to them, “Yes, you are hearing only in the media: terror, merror. But this is not the Islam. This is coming from different sources. Islam is concentrating [on a] family lifestyle. And the family lifestyle is the one thing that the mankind lost today. That’s why mankind is not having comfort in their house[s].”

We must concentrate. We must look at our children properly. We must not be a dictator to them. We must, not only by word to say we love them, we have to show love to them. We have to go out of our way to, not to give them everything they want. They have to know how to respect their parents. But the parents, they have to know how to give them [a] proper education. If we don’t know that, we have to reach to higher stations. Those who knows what to do, to reach to them. And this way, we will be raising better generations, better children, and in the Judgment Day we will not be responsible. Until eighteen years of age, the parents, they are responsible to teach their children the proper ways. Ha, that is European ways. We say eighteen. Man becomes responsible in Islam when he’s sixteen years of age. But in these days, because they [are] sitting twenty-four hours in front of [the] television and they are learning so many wrong things, they [are] still responsible. When they know, watching this only for their ego, they have to know that running to the way of Allah. If you run, to go making Allah happy, Allah is going to make you happy. If you don’t make Allah happy, no one can make you happy in this world. N one can be [a] guarantor for you in this world. If one day you are happy, [the] next day you [are] going to be in trouble. Our duty is to hold on tightly to Islam, to the Holy Prophet’s teachings Inshallahul Rahman.

Allahu Akbar, Alahu Akbar. La’ilaha Illallahu, Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar, Walillahil Hamd.

Zul Hijja 10, 1427 (December 30, 2006)  Eid al-Adha (Feast of Kurban) Khutba

Osmanli Dergahi, Sidney Center, NY

Alhamdulillah. Wa shukr Allah. Astaghfirullah.

We are thanking to our Lord, Allah subhanahu wata’ala. He has created us from nothing. He has given life to us. He is sending us to this World. He is giving everything, what is necessary and need for us, to continue our life. One thing He is asking from us. One thing. To be a thankful servant. Nothing else. And [the] thankful servant is that one who is accepting his Lord’s invitation. He is giving [an] invitation to us, saying to us, “I have created you for Paradise. I have not created you for Fire. The reason of your creation is Paradise.” From the Adam aleyhis selam, continue coming down, to Muhammad aleyhis salatu wasselam. [One] hundred [and] twenty four thousand prophets, Allah subhanahu wata’ala sent to this mankind. To Us. To direct us from the wrong direction, from one-way street, one-way road, to the straight road that it will take us to Paradise. From Adam aleyhis selam until now, mankind is insisting, running after to enter to Fire. And the mercy of Allah subhanahu wata’ala is reaching. Non-stop sending.

Sending guides to us, to take us from that wrong direction, to turn our face to the right direction. Mankind, leaving the way of the prophets, they are going to loose the way. No other man has the formula in their hand to direct people from this World to where they are going. Except prophets. Allah sent prophets to us to show us the way. And the last Prophet have came and [he is] gone. No more prophet coming. The seals of the prophet[s] and the most beloved one in Divine Presence, Muhammad aleyhis salatu wasselam.

You should be happy that Allah subhanahu wata’ala have counted you from among that Prophet. That prophets, that He [is] giving Prophethood to them, they wanted to be, not to be a prophet, but one ummat of that Prophet. Every prophet asked that. And Allah subhanahu wata’ala [was] saying to them, “What I am pleasing in you, [is] what I have given to you. What I am giving to those nations, that they are going to be the Nation of Muhammad, that is what I am pleasing with them. Be happy [with] what I have given to you. They should be happy that they are one [of the] followers of that Prophet.” We should be happy. We should check our self. We should check our intentions. We should check our life. Is it fitting to the teachings of that Prophet, that we are accepting and we are following? If it is not fitting, to the teachings of that Prophet, shame to you. You must say to yourself, I must say to myself, “Shame to me! That Allah subhanahu wata’ala have created me and count me among that Prophet’s Nation, and I am not doing it.”

Complaints, non-stop coming. Saying, “My son is not listening to me, my daughter is not listening to me, my husband is not listening to me, my wife is not listening to me, my mother is not listening to me, my father is not listening to me, my worker is not listening to me, my boss is not listening to me, my president is not listening to me, my nation is not listening to me.” Everyone [is] complaining. Ahir Zaman: The End of the Times. The whole World is preparing to their end. The last nations on the face of earth, made this earth [a] place that the real people don’t want to live anymore. That they are asking, saying, “Ya Rabbi, take us from this World.” And [the] Holy Prophet [is] saying, “It is forbidden [for] a man to ask that. But [the] time is going to come, and some people from my Nation when they are passing through the cemeteries they are going to say, “I wish I was one of those people, that I was in this cemetery, that not seeing all these wrong things, that the Lord of the Heavens is giving to this mankind, and they [are] not being thankful ones.” Finding, so many, their children is not listening to them, they [are] kicking them from the house. Their own children. They [are] kicking them from their house. Because they [are] not listening to them. They may have some rights to do. Yes.

What about us? We [are] not listening to our Lord. We [are] not listening to those guides that He sent to us. And those guides that they are [the] most perfect and clean one[s], they have suffered for our sake. We [are] not listening to them. But, we cannot bare the pain, [of] what is waiting later. So many Allah is showing to us, East and West, North and South. We should not wait until death [is] coming to us. To our door. To our house. We cannot carry that pain. It is very heavy. And the end, [to] those people who’s not living according to the Laws of Allah and His Prophet, they are paying [a] very heavy price. They are paying [the] price with their own life. And they [are] suffering.

This life is still with us. We must make [the] intention in the Holy Day like this. Yes, Holy Day. Holy Day in Islam, that we must celebrate this celebration, meaning according to the borderlines of Islam, that Allah subhanahu wata’ala has permit us. We must enjoy this day. But looking at East and West, looking at North and South, looking at [the] Nation of Muhammed, looking at [the] people that’s around us, looking at our own families, looking at our own childrens, we [are] not tasting that enjoyment. It’s not. Because everyone [is] running top speed for their ego. To satisfy only their desires, that is passing. We must wake up. We must wake up before it’s too late to us.

Today, right now, the Hajis, they just came down [from] throwing stone[s] to Sheytan. Not going there throwing those stones to Sheytan, that is going to do anything to Sheytan. No. The meaning of that, they are taking that characteristics, those Sheytanic characteristics that is inside of them, throwing back to that Sheytan, saying, “Take this proudness away! I’m a servant. I cannot be proud. Take this arrogance away! I’m a servant. I cannot be arrogant. Take this jealousy and envy away! I’m a servant. I cannot be jealous and envious. Take all these wrong characteristic[s] that you have [been] teaching us. Back to you. And we are making [the] intention to be a servant to our Lord.” The highest station that the man can reach: to be [a] servant. To be [a] servant to his Lord. That time, that station puts you higher than the angels. Because Allah subhanahu wata’ala has created those angels. They have no need. They [are] just doing the reason of their creation, and worshipping non-stop. To their Lord. They don’t have ego. They don’t have desires. They don’t have that freewill that we have. Allah subhanahu wata’ala created us, saying, “I have created you in Ahsani Taqweem, the most perfect ones. And I have created you for my service. And [if] you are doing that service I will give you in this World, and while you are in this World, you will [be] reaching to the higher stations, you will [be] reaching to the stations of angels, you may be reaching to the higher [stations] than the angels. If you are not following, what I have been giving to you, you are falling to the levels of the animals, you may fall lower than the animals. Because I have not created you to be [an] animal. I have not created you to be [an] angel. But I have created you, what I have been giving to you, [is] between animal and angels. You have both in you. If you turn your face toward to Me, to My prophets, I will make you the best one. You will live. You [will] enjoy everything that I am giving to you. You will become a thankful servant, and I will open doors to you to Paradise. You will see where you are going. If you are not using that, you are falling to the low levels. And Allah [is] saying to us, “Animal! But you are not [an] animal. You are falling lower than that.” Because the animal I have created for your service. Today, hundreds of thousands, maybe millions of animals, they are slaughtering. Allah subhanahu wata’ala’s mercy to us with that.

When Ibrahim aleyhis selam promised to Allah subhanahu wata’ala that he will sacrifice the most beloved thing to him, to his Lord. When his son [is] growing, and his love is growing to that son, that order is given to him. Saying, “Ya Ibrahim. Have you forgot[ten] your promise to me?” And Ibrahim aleyhis selam knowing and saying, “No Ya Rabbi, I have not. But you know my attachment to this one, that I am so loving and I cannot separate. But I have promised you. And I’m going to slaughter this one. I’m going to sacrifice this one for you.” If you have a son, you understand. What is the sacrificing that you are giving that time? And what is the blessing and the mercy that Allah have sent to you? When Ibrahim aleyhis selam, the most holy prophet, the friend of Allah, sacrificing his son, and Allah subhanahu wata’ala watching him, and all angels they [are] watching him. And the submission that his son is giving to his father, and the father that is giving submission to his Lord. When Ismail aleyhis selam, looking at his father’s face and saying, “My father, now I have understood. Now I am knowing, that I will be sacrificed. I will ask you one question before I go. Which one is most merciful? You or me?” And his father is looking and saying, “Oh my son, you are the most beloved thing to me, and I am ready to sacrifice you, for my Lord. I must be.” And he’s saying, “No my father, you cannot be. It is me. Because I have only one life, and I am giving this life, sacrificing this life, because you have ordered. Because you asked for Allah subhanahu wata’ala for my life. And I have no rejection to that. And I’m submitting myself to you. It must be me. And the sounds they [are] hearing, “The One that has created you both is more merciful than both of you. Now, take this ram. Sacrifice this ram. And you and all the nations coming until judgment day, never promise such a thing like that to me again. Because the promise that you are giving, you cannot do. And I am more merciful than you. I am not there to separate you from your families. But I am there sending you these orders and laws to keep you together in this World, to keep you together [in the] Hereafter.”

Running so many, loving their children saying, “I love my child. I love my daughter and I love my son.” And I’m saying, “What are you doing to them? What kind of life you are presenting to them? Which direction are you pulling them as of parents? Are you in the way of Allah and his Prophet, and they’re going to admire you to run after? Or you are in the direction of Sheytan, and they’re going to run after you. They are fruit from you. They’re going to run to that direction, if you are not in the right direction. But Allah is continuously sending that mercy to us, non-stop. We must wake up. We must look around, what’s happening around us in this World. Every incident that’s happening in this World, it is a lesson to us. Either we take [a] lesson form those incidents that is happening, or one day Allah subhanahu wata’ala will make us [a] lesson to somebody else. Allah [is] saying to us, “What is your value you think is, that I have created you, and you are not opening your hand to ask from me? What kind of value [do] you think you have that time? You have no value in My Presence. I am the One who give you the life. I am the One who’s giving everything to you. You are not asking from Me. You have no value. You have no value with Me. Go find another Lord for yourself. You have no value.” We must understand this.

And anyone who’s making [the] intention to change, in this day like that, the last hutba that the Holy Prophet aleyhis salatu wasselam is giving to [a] hundred [and] twenty four thousand sahabi, they [are] watching him. And saying to them, giving hutba to them, in that day, in the day like this, saying to them, “Oh my Nation. Now Allah subhanahu wata’ala[’s] mercy have reached to you, and taking you from that ignorance time, from that darkness, and putting you, making you, the highest ones in the creation, Sahabei Kiram, that no one is going to reach to your stations. No matter what they do, they [are] not going to reach. Because you have proven yourself. You have proven your promise to your Lord, that you are coming from that darkness, and you [are] turning and you are throwing everything away. And you proved yourself to your Lord: you sacrificed your children, you sacrificed your wealth, you sacrificed everything that Allah has given to you. And Allah He’s accepted it. Now if you have a duty, you must give this message to the people who’s coming after you. And did I give you the message? Say?” And they say, “ You did Ya Rasulallah. You did give us the message. You did Ya Rasulallah.” And the Holy Prophet raising his hand saying, “Ya Rabbi, be [The] Witness on them that I did my part. I give them the message, now it’s for them to give this message for the generation that is coming after, and those that is coming after, they must give that message to others.” Anyone who’s hearing this message, they’re responsible.

They’re going to be responsible on the Judgment Day. Allah is giving us a free life. Yes. Free. He didn’t put [a] leash around our neck. Because we are not animal[s]. But everything is in His hand. If He doesn’t permit – hhhh – the air that you [are] taking it doesn’t come in and you die. If He doesn’t permit – wehhh – air that doesn’t come out and you die. That’s how close you are to death. You still want to understand the mercy of the Lord? Allah subhanahu wata’ala. That is mercy. Hhhh – every breath that you [are] taking, He’s giving you life. Every breath that you [are] giving out, He’s giving you life.

Halifa is asking, to a wise man, one of the most high Halifa[s], Harun Rashid, The Rightly Guided, and his nation, all loving him. Walking in the street like a normal ordinary person. No one is think to attack that Halifa. Because his people [were] loving him. He was [a] just one. And he’s asking, to a saint, saying, “Give me [an] advice, to live according to that advice.” Saying to him, “Ya Halifa, what you will do, if you are thirsty in the desert, would you give, for [a] drop of water, that you are so thirsty, half a glass of water, would you give half the wealth that you have? For that water? You know there is no water, and you will die in the desert. Would you give the half? He said, “Yes.” He says, “The other half of your wealth, [as] soon as you drink the water and you need to go to [the] toilet and if it’s not coming out, that water, would you give the other half?” “Yes” He says, “What is all this wealth? Why [are] you running after all this? It’s not even worth it for half [a] glass of water, that is coming in you and is going out. Why [are] you running after this?” And he’s giving [a] lesson to the most righteous Halifa, that in his time, there was no poverty, that people, they were living in peace. It’s a lesson to us. We must take that. If we don’t take, we will become [a] lesson. This life, this breath of life is given to us. We are breathing that life.

If we are not following the footsteps of the Holy Prophet aleyhis salatu wasselam, we will not know how to live. Impossible. Impossible to know how to live, we will not even know how to sit. We will not even know how to eat. We will not even know how to drink. We will not know how to sleep. No. He’s teaching us everything. Most praised one in Divine Presence. And we are one of his Nation. Yes, we must take that very seriously, in this Holy Day, that the majority of Muslims today, majority of Muslims, that they [are] carrying [a] name, Muslim names, and they say, “I’m Muslim,” they’re not celebrating this day, this Holy Day, but they [are] running to celebrate the imaginationary calendar. Not a real calendar. Not even in the Christian World, [is it a] real calendar. But it’s just imaginationary, fake calendar. That the new year, they [are] running to do that tonight. Tomorrow They [are] running to go crazy. Millions running. And everywhere I’m watching, newspapers in Muslim nations, the Televisions, the Internet pages, they [are] reminding people, the Noel, the New Year Day. They [are] not reminding people this day. This Eid. It is a big test, this year for [the] whole Nation of Muhammed.

It is a bigger test that we are falling in today. Allah subhanahu wata’ala [is] watching everything, what we are doing, and tomorrow we will go to His Presence with what we did. If you know that you did, you run. Yes, we know that everything that we do doesn’t fit to present to our Lord, to His majesty, [those] that say, “We are your servant.” No. If we sit and we pray twenty-four hours, we cannot say to our Lord, “Yes, Ya Rabbi. I am coming to your Presence with this.” We cannot. But Allah subhanahu wata’ala [is] accepting it, saying to us, “Because of the most beloved ones, because of those ones that they did, they run after, and their service to me is most beloved. Because you are following – trying to follow their footsteps, I am accepting yours too.” That way, we will find safety inshallah ul-Rahman.

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. La Ilaha Illallahu, Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar, Walillahil Hamd.

Mevlana Seyh M. Nazim al-Hakkani al-Kibrisi Hazretleri

11 Dhul Hijja 1427 (December 31, 2006)

Eid hutbe (on day of official Turkish bayram)

Lefke, Kibris

“Who is on the Right Path Finds Me!”

Audhu bi-llahi mina shaytani rajim
Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim,
La haula wa la quwatta illa bi-llahi-l ‘Aliyu-l ‘Azim.

O people, we are coming for Eid praying, Eidu-l Adha, Kurban Bayram. Allah
has gathered us for this. We hope that next year the flag of Islam to be
raised in East and West and that Dunya will be in peace. Shaytan’s Sultanate
is disturbing the peace.

We are waiting for the Sultan! We are looking after a Sultan that just he
had been promised through our most praised Prophet Muhammad – sallaLlahu
alayhi wa sallam -, when Last Days approaching and going to be Islam only to
be by name and Muslims never taking any care for Islam, they are not
practicing, not obeying. That day should come that shaytan (is) establishing
his sultanate on earth and from East to West all nations going to follow
him. Muslims therefore only going to be by name, but not practicing Islam,
Holy Rules sent by Allah Almighty.

We are in it now and I am not happy! And every Muslims I think they are
never happy with sultanate of shaytan. Shaytan just divided Muslims through
40, 45, 50 states and everyone they are against each other and Allah
Almighty (is) saying: “…wa atassimu bi habli-llahi jamian wa la tafarraqu: O
believers! You must be all together, like one hand! Don’t be separated!”
What Allah Almighty saying, first Arabs understanding wrong! They are
separated. Turks, Pakistanis, Berberians, Malaysians – everywhere Muslims
separated, not hearing (?). But Allah Almighty preparing (something) for
them, to make them on right path! One slap coming on them!

The days of tyrants coming ??? One after one (they are) going to be taken
away… therefore I am asking, O Allah Almighty, to reach coming year with
full power of Islam over all world, global! No any wrong way – wrong ways
should be destroyed – only one way, Sirata-l Mustaqim, that Allah Almighty
saying: “This is My Way that is just (the) true way, (the) right path,
because who (is) coming on that way, (is) coming and finding Me and (is)
going to be with Me and I am rewarding them for eternal life, for eternity!”

O people, ask eternity, (ask) to reach eternity! We are not going to live
forever on earth, no, everyone born must die. But that is good chance,
perfect chance for a person to be taken from this life to other life and he
is on path of Allah Almighty.

Try to be on right path, O people! Leave wrong ways – wrong ways all
shaytanic! If you like to be in good life, perfect, peaceful life here, hear
and obey to Allah Almighty Orders! If not – no one (is) going to be (in a)
peaceful life on this planet, and when (they are) going to die, (they will
be) going to Hells. No peace for them here or Hereafter.

O people! Therefore you must ask from Allah Almighty: “Ya Rabbi, let us to
be for us good shepherds, O our Lord, to make our ways good ways and to
follow Your good shepherds to reach to Your Pleasure!”

O people, ask from Allah Almighty: “Ya Rabbi, we live (for You???)… O our
Lord, give us a chance to make You pleased with us!”

For everything ask: “If I am doing this, (is) my Lord going to be pleased
with me or not?” This is (the) balance through all Holy Books – Old
Testament, New Testament, Psalms, Holy Quran – and all Messengers from
Sayyidina Adam – alayhi salam – up to end, ending with Sayyidina Muhammad –
sallaLlahu alayhi wa sallam -, all of them (were) trying to teach people
that they should do their best to make their Lord pleased with them!

La ilaha ill-Allah, la ilaha ill-Allah, la ilaha ill-Allah, Muhammadun
Rasulullah!

SubhanAllah, SultanAllah! SubhanAllah SultanAllah!

Subhan Sensin, Sultan Sensin! Subhan Sensin, Sultan Sensin!
Ya Allah!

No any Khatib may speak what we speak! This is one place here and just
reached East and West!

May Allah forgive me and you and bless you, His Mu’min servants!

May Allah give us from His endless Mercy Oceans to be strong believers and
full with love of Allah and His most Beloved, most praised servant,
Rasulullah, and His Awliya and Mu’mins!
