Sohbet given by Sheykh Abdul Kerim el-Hakkani el-Kibrisi

Friday 24 Safar, 1427 / March 24, 2006
39th St. Dergah, Manhattan, New York

(As everyone sat down in the form of a crescent in the circle of
zikir, Sheykh Efendi began)

Medet Ya Syyidi Ya Sultanul Awliya, Medet.

We are holding the last crescent inshaAllah. The last crescent is
coming down now and we are holding that last one. InshaAllah this is
the crescent. Divine help is with us inshaAllah ar-Rahman. Sheytan is
living his last days in this world too, the last days of his kingdom.
He is paranoid, going crazy because he knows that Judgment Day is
coming nearer now and he knows that there is a severe punishment
waiting for him for challenging his Lord. He is still not putting his
ego down saying, “I am asking for forgiveness.” He is still running
top-speed doing harm. He cannot do more inshaAllah. He is not going to
be able to harm those who are protected. Those who are supporting his
kingdom are going to be punished with him. No mercy to those.

Auzu billahi min-ash shaitanir rajim


You may be wondering why I am saying all these things tonight. I will
tell you why. It doesn’t matter what happens to us, or who comes or
who questions or what. I just heard the news from Cyprus that some
evil ones, Sheytans from Army and Police, are running to question our
Grandsheykh. They are preparing their books, the prosecutors and
everyone, thinking that they are going to bring him to the court
because Grandsheykh said that this kingdom of Sheytan is going to come
down and Allah’s laws are going to come back up. That’s why they are
upset. Who is upset to that? Only Sheytan. But they are saying to
themselves that they are humans. Hmm.

InshaAllah ar-Rahman Allah will not let anyone to touch him. Mevlana saying “My
meat is very old and very raw. You cannot eat it. It stays
in your stomach.” If anyone understands from messages then that was a
message for them. And he said, “My feet are already inside the
grave.” That’s another message to them saying, “If you are thinking
that you are going to scare me then think again.” I am speaking for
myself. I don’t know about you. InshaAllah with Allah’s (subhana wa
ta’ala) help, I am behind my Sheykh one hundred percent and I am ready
to die for him. I will sacrifice this life right now for him and I
believe that there are tens of thousands in this world to sacrifice
their lives for that one.

So many did this to the Holy Prophet (alayhi salatu wa salam) also. We
have nothing to lose. We have everything to gain. We came to the last
days and the kingdom of Sheytan is going to come down. If they are
looking for something thinking that they are going to remove us away
then they should think again because we don’t need any guns or any
soldiers to bring this down. [If we are] in the jail cells we can bring this
system down. We only need the order coming down from the Divine Presence saying,
“Go ahead.”

Maybe you don’t know and neither do the evil thinking ones. The good
thinking ones know already. I will tell you about Hallaj-e Mansur.
Hallaj. Hallaj-e Mansur, the one who was beloved to Allah. He said
something and the court took him. I am not entering into those
details. They judged him and they gave him death penalty. He smiled at
them. They put him in jail. When they came at night, they looked
through the window of the jail and he wasn’t there. It was locked
everywhere but he wasn’t in the jail. They were shocked and surprised
saying, “How did he escape? Everything is locked.” They looked
everywhere to find him. Next morning he appeared in his jail cell
sitting and praying. They looked and he is there. They said, “He is
making some magic and that’s what we saw last night.” The next night
they went looking for him. They didn’t find the jail there. The next
morning the jail was there and he was inside. They took him for
questioning again. They said, “Where were you last night and where
were you the night before?” He said, “The night before when you came
to the jail, you looked and I wasn’t in the jail, I went to visit my
Lord. Last night when you came and you didn’t find the jail, my Lord
came to visit me.”

The next day they were taking him to hang him. They put people on the
sides of the street to throw stones at him. Every stone that was
hitting him, he was looking and smiling at them. That is Hallaj.
Believe me, our Grandsheykh is thousands and thousands of times more
beloved to Allah (subhana wa ta’ala). I am saying that to you. He is
not going to say that to you. I am saying that to you. He is more
beloved to the Holy Prophet (alayhi salatu wa salam). And all secrets
are given in his hands. This is for us to know and to live according
to. Don’t have any fear. We have no fear from Shaytan. We have fear
from Allah. We have fear because we love Allah. We don’t want to break
our friendship, our relationship with our Lord. That’s why we are
fearful. It’s not because we are fearful that He is going to punish
us. No. He will not punish us. But it is because we believe in Him and
we try our best for Him, for His religion. Live according to that and
you will find this world Paradise for you and you will find in the
Hereafter angels greeting you, playing and dancing for you saying,
“One more beloved of Allah is entering to Paradise. Paradise is
becoming better.”

Do you know why it’s Paradise? Do you know why Paradise is Paradise?
It’s because all beloveds of Allah are in that place. That’s why
Paradise becomes Paradise. If you become beloved to Allah in this
world then this world becomes a Paradise to you too. If we all become
beloved to Allah then the whole world becomes Paradise. Leave your
sheytan outside. Don’t support your sheytan and don’t worship sheytan.
Anyone who is supporting their sheytan is worshipping their sheytan.
That is the biggest sin because you are giving partnership to Allah.
That is the biggest sin that you are committing. Either you are a
servant of Allah or you are a slave of Sheytan. And those who are
slaves to Sheytan are going where Sheytan is going.

InshaAllah this message is to you, to me and to those who are trying
to harm the beloved ones of Allah and to the whole world for them to
know that they are not going to be able to harm Islam because Allah
(subhana wa ta’ala) has promised us and we believe in Allah’s promise.
And that promise is coming closer and closer. It looks very dark, yes.
That’s the way it’s supposed to be. It looks like it’s going to get
worse. Yes. But it’s going to get better. It’s always better for the
believers. Allah is promising us saying, “Ahirat, Ahir life is always
better for believers”, meaning, tomorrow’s life is going to be better
than today’s life. That is the Quran speaking. And the Holy Prophet
(sws) is saying, “The believer’s today has to be better than yesterday
and tomorrow must be better than today.” It must be. If it is not
happening better then search yourself. Look. You are not doing
something right. You are doing something wrong. Correct yourself. You
will be responsible for your daily activities.
