Sohbets – Sheykh Mawlana Nazim


People are ignoring the Shariat by claiming that they have reached
Hakikat and Marifat. In this sohbet Seyh Mevlana Nazim is saying
that he is not an easy one when it comes to Shariat. Sheykh Abdul Kerim was
saying in his sohbet one night that Shariat applies to everything and in every
level. Shariat has its own Shariat, Tariqat has its own Shariat, Hakikat has its
own Shariat and Marifat has its own Shariat. Nothing is without laws.


Sheykh Mevlana Nazim al-Hakkani al-Kibrisi

25th December, 2001.

A new day, new provision. Every day is different.. One of the 54
obligations of a believer is to know who is his enemy…Man needs a
guide. Who has a guide is on the straight path. Someone must go ahead
and people must follow. You cannot guide yourself, you need a guide,
that is the arrangement of Allah. All prophets were shepherds- first
for sheep, then for people.

They were guiding people on the way of truth to Allah, it is their
duty. Ho cannot distinguish the friend from the ennemy, will be
harmed. You must know who is your ennemy, and who is your friend. A
friend is someone who cares about you, who is on your side, who may
burn for you. The ennemy is the one who wants to harm you, who is
against you and who is asking to burn you. The ennemy wants to destroy
mankind, the friend wants to keep mankind alive and bring them to safety.

All prophets were informing about mankind’s ennemy Shaitan. Shaitan
declared himself ennemy of Adam from the beginning. He was the reason
that Adam had to leave Paradise, where life was effortless, everything
was ready for him there, he was like a Sultan. Shaitan cheated him and
he was thrown down to Dunya, the Dar-ul-Bela, the place of misery, not
of peace. And Adam warned his children to beware of Shaitan, and after
him all prophets were warning their nation and informing them that
Shaitan is our ennemy. Who is asking support and help from Allah, will
be helped by Allah. Who is asking support for his ego, willl be helped
by Shaitan. In the 21st century 99% of the people are friends of
Shaitan, best friends. They say :’We cannot live without him’, because
he is teaching them how to live a modern life, and he is teaching
their ego. Prophets teach us discipline, and feed our spirituality.

What about someone who is working part-time for the Turkish army, and
the rest of the day for the Greek army? Who will accept him? Nowadays
Muslims have let themselves be cheated. They told them: Prayer is one
thing, Dunya something else. Pray, but don’t forget about Dunya. Work
for Allah and for Shaitan, make him happy. And it is impossible.
Darkness and light cannot mix.

And we don’t have two hearts with two Thrones in it. There is only one
Throne, and it must be for Allah. In a country also there can be only
one Sultan. So either you give your heart to Allah, or to Shaitan. And
the heart is the House of Allah, Bait-u-llah. The heart is the Kaaba,
and it is not empty. If it was empty, why He would call us to come
there? If I am not here, would my invitation have any taste? Has an
invitation where the Sultan himself is not present, any value?

Allah wanted to invite the people, His servants. They asked Ibrahim:
‘Where can we visit our Lord?’ And Allah ordered Ibrahim to go with
his son Ismail into the desert and to build His House. They made a
building of black stones- just four walls. This is 5ooo years ago, and
still this building is there. It is known as the Kaaba, Bait-u-llah,
the House of God. When they had finished, Allah told Ibrahim: ‘Go to
this mountain and call My servants. Tell them who wants to visit Me,
may come to My House, the Kaaba. This is My House in Dunya, and I will
accept their visit. They shall not have any difficulties and they
shall be under My protection.’ Ibrahim was calling: ‘O servants of
Allah and Ummah of Muhammad, come to the House of Allah.’ And all the
people and the seeds of the uncreated generations were making the
talbiya:’Labbaik, Allahumma, labbaik, labbaika, la sharika laka,
labbaik! Inna-l hamda, wa ni’amat, laka wa-l mulk, la sharika lak! O
our Lord, Yours is the order, we know no God except You, we are coming
to visit You!’

There are so magnificient building around the world, but people don’t
go there. Why? Europe is beginning to wonder. Allah is sending
interest to their heart before Qiyama. This building is there since
thousands of years and nothing has harmed it. What is the secret
behind it? Our priests don’t recognize Islam and prevent the Quran
from being read. Can anyone prevent knowledge? Why are they fearing we
could read this Book? What is behind it? Where is this power of
attraction coming from? The Europeans are coming to their senses. A
magnet is also a piece of iron, but it has a special power of
attraction to attract other iron. They go to Jerusalem in these days.
But how many are going each year? No more power of attraction. But the
power of attraction is alive in Islam, and with joy each year millions
of people prepare to go for Hajj. If they would not prevent them, 2o,
3o, or 5o million people would go. But they are asking: ‘How would
they fit?’ ‘You stupid one- Who is the One inviting them? You or Me?’,
Allah is asking them. Allah has the power to make place for all people
to pray freely, but they think it this a joke. Who told you to build
these huge buildings? And again people don’t fit. My last Hajj was
198o, and that time already we didn’t fit. But 6o years ago, the first
Hajj-ul-Akbar after the Second World War, I didn’t pray one single
prayer outside the Haram. Now they enlarged it 1oofold, but people
don’t fit, they step on each other, they can’t find any place to pray.
That is, because belief has sunk to zero; they think they must help
Allah and they made it bigger. And Shaitan is teaching them so many

‘Leave My House alone,’ Allah says, ‘whoever wants to come, may come’.
But they make contingents for each country, and more than that may not
come, and also you can come only once- they make so many restrictions.
That is not Shariat. Everybody who wants to, may go. If the House was
empty, nobody would want to go there… I went 25 times…Insha Allah
there will be an opening this year to go without passport and
visa…And if Allah gives me the power, I want to come through the
desert, walking… Run to His servanthood, leave your ego. May Islam
appear, Kufr disappear. May S.Mehdi come and we be with him.

If an animal is walking on the straight path, its owner is not going
to beat it…If a Muslim is obeying Allah, His Prophet and the
government, nobody can harm him. But so many people do stupid things
and they make fitna, and Allah sends punishment on them. Islam doesn’t
accept fanaticism and fundamentalism- that is fitna, we are not
accepting it.

Jihad is when the Sultan will come and take the Beyat of the people.
Then he may declare Jihad or peace. Not everybody can declare Jihad
against America, England or Europe. We have a Shariat and we must
follow it. One group of people says: We make Jihad?! How? Where is the
flag of the Prophet? Only the Sultan of Islam may order. They are
shouting: Jihad- but where is their Imam? Their Imam is Shaitan. It is
Haram to bring people into difficulties and cause them to be killed.
Bin Laden is responsible for what is happening in Afghanistan. Why he
went there? He is Saudi. If he wanted to make Jihad, let him go to
Jerusalem to conquer Bait-ul-Maqdis for Islam…Why he went to
Afghanistan? Muslims make Jihad against Muslims?! And Palestine needs
someone to save it. Israel made Jerusalem the capital of Israel. They
have rights to pray there, and the Christians have rights, but the
power and the keymust be with us Muslims.

So many stupid ones make problems for the governments…I am not for
America, but I can teach you the Shariat. I am not an easy one…




Selam aleykum to all members of the group,

This is the sohbet of Sheykh Mevlana Nazim that was read at the
Osmanli Dergahi on one night and this is the sohbet to which
Sheykh Abdul Kerim continuously referred to while addressing the issue
of people making undue claims about Sheykh Mevlana. Sheykh Abdul Kerim
said that this sohbet is enough to clear up everything about the issue
at hand and in it Sheykh Mevlana is saying who is all-Seeing and

Sohbet by Sheykh Mevlana Nazim al-Hakkani

April 24, 2004 – Cyprus.

Allah Almighty, al Musawwir, with His unlimited Power and Ability is
creating countless different faces by using the same elements of a
face: eyes, ears, nose and mouth- He is also designing the lives of
countless people and every day’s worldwide events never to be similar
one to the other- Allah has given man the authority to use an unknown
natural power, electricity, for their benefit, but Shaitan has made
man to use it for harming people and all technology is only used for
harming people- people are not taking care for Allah’s divinely
service, but only for their teacher Dr.Shaitan- Prophets teaching is
to be best servants for Allah and to do one’s best for His creatures,
but people prefer to be the slaves of Shaitan instead of keeping the
honour of being Allah’s servants and to receive His blessings, which
are giving life to everything on earth- the way for mankind
to be saved from heavenly cursing it to admit that they are on the
wrong way and to correct themselves- the cleaning has begun and
everyone who is not taking care to clean his soul and who is harmful
for other creatures- from 6 billion people 5 billion- they will die)

Audhu bi-llahi mina shaitani rajim, Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim, la
haula wa la quwatta illa bi-llahi-l ‘Aliyu-l ‘Azim.By the name of
Allah Almighty, most Merciful, most Beneficent and most Magnificent.

Glory be to Allah, Subhan Allah, Sultan Allah- (the) real Sultanate
(is) for Allah only and He is Sultan, everything belongs to Him.
Everything is from His creation, He (is) creating (everything),
bringing (it) from unknown worlds and sending (it) to other unknown
worlds and (these) worlds also belong to Him.

An appearance on (a) mirror, or better than (a) mirror we may say
(about the) screen of a TV. You may look and see on the screen of a TV
(things) from East to West, from North to South, so many countries,
oceans, mountains, jungles, animals, and unknown areas, different
colours of people and everyone (is) just appearing in his private or
special looking. You can’t find a person to be similar to a second
one. (For) everyone(‘s creation)(Allah Almighty) is using two eyes,
one nose, one mouth, two ears, one head, one face. And (through) these
elements (that He is) using-eyes, nose, mouth and ears- (the faces of
people are coming to be) in countless appearances.

How many people (there are)- their nose is going to be different,
their eyes may be different, their ears may be different, their mouth
may be different, and then (you are) looking (and seeing that it is)
going to be (a) different face, Allahu akbar!

Do you think a painter, an artist that (is) painting, (he) may be able
to paint more than we can say 7o (different) faces? 7o different faces
do you think he may paint? It is difficult. Perhaps seven faces he may
paint, then he is going to wonder for the eight face or wondering how
he may do another painting for ten (different faces) or more. (It is)
so difficult! That is the meaning that man’s capacity, ability is
going to be nothing, but Allah Almighty’s Power (is) bringing millions
and billions (of) people not to be similar. Each one (is) in another
shape, form or design. He is ‘Musawwir’, that means, Designer. He is
Designer and endless, countless designs He may do, Allahu akbar!
The Power of Allah Almighty and His Ability or Capacity (is) to do
everything. He is not in need to think for designing, no. You must
think and then you may draw, you may make a design. But He Almighty
Allah is doing everything by His Order. What is His Order, to say:
“Be!” When He is ordering for being something and saying: “Be”, that
must appear. If He is saying: “Don’t be”, then everything is going to
disappear. And He is Designer with His unlimited Power.

He is designing daily (the) lives of people. How many billions of
people living on earth now, on world, worldwide continents, worldwide
oceans and countless creatures on it, and the design of this world
today is not similar or same that was yesterday. No, that design (is)
just finished, coming today another design. (And) designs with
countless activities, actings, works, appearances, today (are) never
going to be similar to yesterdays design, no.

Today’s works (are) just 1oo % different; (there is) no way to keep
something from yesterday as it is today, no, (it) just passed away,
and tomorrow (is also) coming another appearance of creation or
designing on earth that is not going to be same as todays, no,
everything is changing.

And you are looking in TV so many things passing, going, passing,
going-coming and going. I was looking TV first time coming to Cyprus.
First time people were looking that big box and appearing (in it) so
many things, (and) one pheasant was getting up and going (to the)
back(side of the TV) and looking (if) anyone (is) behind it.”Where is
this that person? Not inside!” “Inside.” “But I am not seeing.” I am
saying: “That is closed”… People were thinking that someone is
inside. Now everyone (is) knowing that (that) screen is bring so
many countless appearances and when you are closing that one, making
(it) off, nothing is coming in appearance.

And, Subhanallah- Allah Almighty (is) giving an authority to man to
use one power- electricity. If this is not running in it, nothing is
going to appear. And we also have much more perfection. This TV is (a)
man made instrument; we are making it. Allah Almighty is giving a
power to man for using, some authority from this nature (and) that is
electricity. The life of 21st century’s technology (is) on this power,
electricity, that no one (is) knowing what it is. If (there is)
running something from one (side to the other and) what is running,
they are not knowing. If they are saying this beyond moving not moving
must be taken away (?). This (which is) never ending running, (this)
something in it, that is (a) secret power that Allah Almighty just
granted man to use for his benefit. But Shaitan (is) making man not to
use (it) for their benefit but to use (it) to harm someones other
ones. Whole technology is only used for Shaitanic purposes. Everywhere
technology (is) asking much more power from electricity to destroy and
to kill and to do to harm people, because Shaitan (is) teaching them:
“You must harm people. Don’t give your benefit to people, but as much
as possible harm people!”

That is (the) shaitanic way and Allah Almighty is saying: ” O My
servants! Try to give as much as possible your best (and) do your best
for everything!” That is heavenly teaching, but Shaitan is saying:
“No, try to make everything for harming people, to destroy everything
on earth, not to give peace to people. Make them to be in fear!” That
is shaitanic and whole religions are coming to make people to be good
servants to Allah and good ones to each other. That is (the) summary
of heavenly messages that the Lord of Heavens is saying: “Oh My
servants- that I am accepting your servanthood in My divinely
Presence- try to be excellent servants for Me!” How? What do
you think?

If a person is just employed for (the service of) a Sultan or a King-
do you think that that person is not trying to do his best for the
Sultan? Or (that) he is never taking any care? (No, but) he is trying
to make (the) Sultan or King to be much more pleased with him. That is
(what) our mentality (is) saying- (so) what about for Allah? For to be
the servant of (a) King, an obedient servant of (a) King, those people
are asking to continue to do their best for their King or Sultan, to
make him pleased with them. I never heard (that) a person (is) doing
against this (and) to do his worst, because when he is making his
worst, he is going to be kicked out.

That is not (what) our mentality or our mind (is) saying (to) us: Be
(the) worst one for His service. Never saying! But our mentality is
saying: Try to be much more obedient and trustworthy in his royal
presence. What about for Allah that He created you? Why you are not
taking care for His servanthood? You think that 21st century people
are obedient servants for their Lord or (they are) thinking on it?
Never, you can’t find (anyone); only a handful people to be on that
way and others (are) saying: “I don’t care. I don’t care for service
for divinely service.” “What is your care?” “I am taking care for my
teacher who is giving to me PhD, doctor Shaitan.”

Shaitan (is) becoming doctor now, PhD. (In the) 21st century Sadanas
(is) becoming Doctor. PhD, Masterhood (he is) giving now. Who is
following him, (he is) giving to them that diploma, honour, (the)
honour to be his best employees, to be (his) best servants. But
(really they are) not servants, they are (his) slaves! Slavery is
something, and servanthood is something else. Servanthood is giving
honour to (a) person, slavery (is) taking honour from people. And
Shaitan just made (the) whole nation (of Muhammad sws) through the
21st century to be his slaves and (there is) slavery everywhere;
what Shaitan is saying they are following. They are never taking any
respect for their Creator, the Lord of Heavens.

What do you think, what is going to be (the future) for these people?
And we are speaking on an important point: that from (the) beginning
of prophecy Prophets teaching is only on two pillars: One (is that
they are) calling people to try to be best servants for their Lord,
and (the) second (is that they are calling people) to be good ones to
teach other and to give their best to everyone. As much as possible
you must give your best to every creature, even you must not harm
anything. We are looking an ant- if you are asking to kill it, it is
running away, fearing to be killed. Without harming you are running to
kill (it)? And He created that one and it has a private position
through creation. Nothing is created for nothing, everything (is)
created for something, for some purposes. You can’t say: “Why this is
created?” No. You don’t know, but the Creator is knowing and therefore
He is creating that.

People (are) on (the) wrong way, they are following shaitanic
teachings that (are) saying: “As much as possible harm people, give
trouble to them, be trouble makers”, because (the) first troublemaker
who was (it)? (The) first troublemaker was Shaitan, Sadanas. When
Allah Almighty was ordering: “Bow to Adam” he was saying: “No”, making
trouble, making trouble through whole angels. Angels were ashaming
(for) what he did in (the) divinely Presence, saying “no”. And (the)
first troublemaker Shaitan and every kind of troublemakers are
Shaitans, Sadanas. That is shaitanic teaching that is bringing the
whole world now on the edge of Hell.

O people! You have been ordered to be from mankind! Keep you honour
and your honour is to be best servants in divinely Presence and when
you are going to be best servants for the Lord of Heavens (it is)
coming on you blessings and (these) blessings (are) giving life to
this earth and everything on it. But if you are not giving your
servanthood to your Lord, cursing (is) coming and cursing (is) giving
harm to everything on earth. May Allah forgive us!

Once S.Musa was passing through a village and (he was) entering and
finding a spring running, so cold and sweet water. Just he drank and
(he was) making ablution and he was so keen to be there, happy and
passing through. Everything (was) green, areas, meadows, people’s
faces (were) shining, their animals, cattle so happy, so healthy and
so clean weather breathing, Everything (was) okay, he was so happy. He
passed. After a while he was thinking to come and to see once again
that village and he came and l(he was) looking: “Where is that
village? I am coming (to) a wrong place? What happened? But I know
that I (was) coming through that same way, (and there is) no any other
village in that area. But what happened?

(the) spring (is) no more running, (there is) no more water, no more
people in it and (all the) trees (are) just dried and everything (is)
in ruins! And he was saying: “O my Lord, what happened? You know what
happened to such a people here, where they went (and) how their
village was destroyed?” And Allah Almighty was answering: “O Musa, it
is the same village. But once (there) was coming a person who was
never taking any care for My obedience and servanthood. He came and he
was drinking from this water and he was entering passing through and
my divinely Anger was on him. My divinely Anger and Cursing was coming
on that person and (on the) people who were welcoming such a person
(and) I was making to dry that spring and to be everything dry. I was
taking My blessings for them and cursing was coming on them. This
is the same village that you have been here before.”

(And) now- what you are saying? Everyone (is) never taking any care
for their Lord’s obedience. Everyone is running away, everyone is
thinking only for their Dunya, this life, nothing else. They are never
taking care for their Lord’s obedience, they (are) never taking care
to be a good servant of Allah Almighty and therefore cursing (is)
coming on them. Every time you are looking this TV (you see)
explosion, explosion, explosion.people dying, earth quakes, floods,
storms and fires and also countless illnesses coming on people, one
(is) finishing (and) another one (is) coming, one (is) finishing,
(and) another unknown cursing (is) coming on them.

Therefore the way of mankind to be saved from heavenly cursing and to
reach heavenly blessings is that they must say: “Our way now is (the)
wrong way. We must change this wrong way to right way” or all of them
are going to finish. And now just began a cleaning. (It) just began
and everyone who is not taking care for their souls to be clean, they
should be taken away. Not only (a few): “Ohhh, ten people died,
fifteen people died, hundred people died.” – leave that! Even
“millions” (are) never going (to be) a real account of people (that
are going to) die when (the heavenly) cursing (is) coming now!
I am running to Allah, to His shelter to be sheltered, because
billions of people are going to die now. Billions, not millions! From
6 one (is) remaining and 5 (are) going to be taken away. He knows! He
knows who is harming people, who is harmful for people and (He is)
taking them away. Good ones (are) remaining, bad ones (are) going away.

May Allah forgive us and give us a good understanding for heavenly

It is written also in the Old Testament, (in the) New Testament, in
(the) Psalms and finally in the last Message from Heavens, the holy
Quran. (They are) saying (the) same point to people: to be good
servants, not to be Shaitan’s followers. May Allah forgive us to be in
safety! For the honour of the most honoured one in the divinely
Presence, S.Muhammad sws, Fatiha.



Teachings of Mevlana Sheikh Abdullah Ed-Dagistani En-Naqshbandi.

This book is read on a regular basis in the Dergah. It is probably the best book of Sheikh Mevlana Hazretleri’s sohbets.

One of the reasons Sheikh Abdul Kerim Efendi likes it is because it sticks to the way Sheikh Mevlana speaks, which carries meaning and secrets.

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

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!

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,

Selamu Aleykum,

In the Sohbet of Sheykh Abdul Kerim about the Infinite
Mercy of Allah Almighty , he keeps referring to a sohbet
of Sheykh Mevlana. Here is the sohbet:




(Extracted from the Lectures of Sheik Nazim)

Faith granted to everyone

My Grandsheikh was saying that the gates of Paradise are
open for all to enter; and according to the hadith of the
Holy Prophet, Allah Almighty has parceled out Paradise,
assigning to everyone his portion, and not allowing anyone
to occupy the portion that has been assigned to another.
What this means is that Allah Almighty has given to His

servants before they ever ask for anything, has given with
a generosity that is absolute, as He doesn’t wait for us to
ask that then He may give us according to our requests, He
gives unbesought.

Our Grandsheikh went on to say that Allah Almighty treats
His people in this life with the absolute Mercy emanating
from His Divine Name Ar-Rahman (The All-Beneficent). No
one can fall outside of the bounds of a mercy and a
beneficence that is boundless, as is the mercy implicit in
the Holy Name Ar-Rahman. Don’t ever think that the mercy
oceans belonging to this Divine Name has any shore – no –
they are boundless and endlessly deep, and so they ever will
remain. You must know that Allah is never going to take
back anything which He has granted to His servants, and that
even to think such a thing is unbelief (Kufr) and the worst
thought that we can think about our Lord. Yes, our Lord
gave to us all a grant never ending, and that grant is

What we are listening to now of Grandsheikh’s words is not
knowledge of the sort that we may be accustomed to hearing
– it may seem new and strange to our ears, but nonetheless
it is the truth from the secrets which are opened up day by
day to the Saints (Awliya). Allah Almighty granted faith to
the Sons of Adam on the Day of Promises, the day when the
souls of all the descendants of Adam were brought forth from
his backbone and asked by their Lord: “Am I not your Lord?”
We were all present on that day – looking to our Lord,
talking to Him, knowing Him – and we replied: “Yea, verily.
We testify that You are our lord.”
(Surat-ul-Araf : 172).

That faith was granted to everyone, but Divine Wisdom
decreed that in this life some people’s faith would remain
covered while that of others would appear. The Holy Prophet
said in regards to this: “The hearts of the Sons of Adam
contain treasures, and the keys to the hearts are in the Hand
of our Lord.” Therefore, if He is not going to open the
hearts, no one can- not even His Beloved Muhammad, for whose
sake the whole creation was created.

If you understand that faith is present in all of mankind,
you must be very respectful towards each one of them and you
must understand that only with Allah Almighty’s permission
are you believing and showing your faith, while someone else
is not showing faith only because his Lord has not opened it
up for him. You must understand the matter like this, and
never say about anyone, “He is an unbeliever’, – who can know
what will be the state of any person at the end of his life?
The key to the hearts is in the Hand of the Almighty, and what
will become of each person in the end is a secret known in
its entirety only to Allah Himself; even the Prophet can only
know something about this matter within defined limits. On
the Day of Promises, Allah Almighty granted faith to His
servants, and He is not going to take it away from them –
perhaps they will declare their faith upon breathing
their last breath – such is Allah’s mercy. Allah Almighty
is keeping and hiding so many mercy oceans which are destined
for His servants.

(A question was asked) : “Mevlana, it is easy enough for me to
understand how someone who dies a slow death from a long and
torturous disease may have time to reflect on his life, and
realizing his helplessness, believe and turn to Allah in
repentance (Taubah) even though he was the most stubborn
unbeliever and evildoer up until that time; but what I can’t
comprehend is how someone who is, for example, shot and
killed while in the act of committing a heinous crime, may
attain repentance despite the suddenness of his death.”

(Sheikh Nazim replied) : Allah may create time within time.
The time that it takes that bullet to kill him may seem very
short to us, but for that person Allah may make it a very
long instant indeed, long enough for him to reflect upon his
whole life and repent unto his Lord. Isn’t Allah Almighty
capable of extracting a confession from His slave? – He most
certainly is.

(Question) : “But, Mevlana, how shall we understand all the
verses of Qur’an which speak about eternal Hell with no exit?’

(Answer) : Allah Almighty says in one verse of the Qur’an :
“And we don’t send our verses (Ayat) except to frighten
(Takhweefeh).” In other words, `To scare the hell out of
people.’ For example, you may say to your son, “If you don’t
stop doing that I will kill you!” In reality, you are never
going to do any such thing, but that warning may just be
sufficient to make him listen to what you are saying and
to desist from that disliked action.

(Question) ” “Mevlana, why is it that the meanings we derive
when we read the Qura’n seem to contradict the hidden meanings
which you are uncovering?”

(Answer) : Here I have some salt; it is a white powder that we
use in most of our foods. Who could guess that it consists of
two poisons that would kill whoever consumed them? Also, here
we have some water – who could guess that it consists of two
gases – two hydrogen atoms and one of oxygen? He who knows,
knows, and he who doesn’t know sees only the obvious and
apparent. The latter may deny, but his denial won’t make
him right.

“My Mercy outdoes My Anger”,

Similarly, people read the Holy Quran and understand it on
their respective levels; they may deny anything beyond their
level of understanding, but their denial doesn’t decrease in
the least the validity of the deeper truth, truth which cannot
be gained merely through outward study, but is given as a
grant from the Divine Presence.

Grandsheikh, speaking about the final results of our actions
(Aqiba) and Allah’s manner of judging them, pointed to Allah’s
word: “My Mercy outdoes My Anger”, and he said: “For me, these
are the greatest good tidings, as it gives me hope of my safety
from Hell to know that Allah Almighty’s Mercy will come and
cover everything on the Last Day”

That Divine Forgiveness will cover so many people on that day;
and the Prophet said that even Satan will be seeking
forgiveness, and hoping that it may come to him also, but more
than this the Prophet didn’t say.

Grandsheikh said that nothing from the actions of Allah
Almighty’s servants will be a burden on Allah; don’t ever
think that it could be. Now, listen carefully to the
following description which is recorded in the Holy Books:
on the Day of Judgment, Allah Almighty will order a person
to Hell, and the Angels will grab him and start dragging him
to the fire. When he realizes that this is really happening
he will turn to his Lord and say: “Oh my Lord, I never
thought that You would really put me in the fire of Hell.”
Allah then orders: “Bring him back.” He was such an evil
person, did so many dark deeds and listened always to the
dictates of his lower self, but he never lost hope in his
Lord’s Mercy for him and His reprieving him from Hell. We
can be proud of being our Lord’s servants, even if we are
not obedient ones – proud that He is such a merciful Lord
who will reprieve so many of us from the jaws of Hell, and
admit them to Paradise.

My Grandsheikh was saying that there are different stations
for each person in Paradise that Allah gave without their
ever having been asked for; that is His favour and His grant
unto His servants which he has communicated to them through
His Prophets. When our Grandsheikh was saying that even
disobedient servants will also finally attain Allah
Almighty’s Mercy, he quickly drew our attention to the
following important point: “Oh my son, I am saying that with
Allah’s Endless Mercy everyone should finally enter Paradise.
Such considerations, however, are for the common people, and
we are not seeking to stay at that level. We are asking for
the highest station, the greatest pleasure, the highest
degree for His servants: the stations of Ridwan-Allah-ul-Akbar.
With those servants our Lord will be absolutely pleased, and
they, in turn, will be absolutely pleased with their Lord.

Here is the answer to a question that anyone who is striving
hard in the way of his Lord and obeying his commandments may
ask: “Why should we make a great effort to please Allah if
there is a good chance that he will forgive us anyway?” The
answer is: The degrees in the Divine Presence of those who
have made efforts must differ from the degrees of those who
were complacent in this life.

The Two Paradises

Grandsheikh was saying, quoting the Holy Qur’an, that there
are two Paradises: one of them is the real Paradise and the
other is but a shadow or copy of it. Allah Almighty is going
to give to His servants according to what were their wishes
and desires in this life. Whoever was satisfied with this
life’s pleasures, and preferred them to the love of his Lord,
asking for ever more pleasures in everything of this world,
and giving the love of Allah the second place in his heart,
Allah will give him what he loves most: a Paradise full of
pleasures: splendid gardens, luxurious castles and lovely
virgin girls – all these gifts will be of a beauty
unimaginable, incomparable to any beauty on Earth.

The original Paradise in the Divine Presence and the highest
station (Maq’adu Sidq) is entirely different from the shadow
Paradise. The Prophet said that in that Paradise there are
no palaces, no gardens and no girls. In their place one
will find the Lord’s smiling, radiant Countenance. In the
first Paradise, the shadow Paradise, the people will regard
their Lord’s Divine Countenance once a week at the time that
we now pray the weekly congregational prayer (Salat ul-Jum’a).
When they take a look at His Face they will forget all else;
the Divine lights from His Divine Face will make them
forgetful of everything else, this will occupy them until the
veils of Majestic Grandeur are lowered; then they will return
to their selves. When they are gazing at their Lord’s
Countenance, they are taken from themselves and are no more
there, but when the Veil of Grandeur is lowered, the
inhabitants of that Paradise come to themselves and proceed
to enjoy their paradisiacal pleasures more than ever –
everything will appear new and full of more light than before.
But for those who worked in this life for His pleasure, Allah
is taking them to His Divine Presence and not letting them out.
That is the real Paradise. Our Grandsheikh was saying that to
be in the Divine Presence for only one second, he would give
all the eight Paradises – it is so valuable an experience.

In general, the people now living in this life like it more
than they like the worship of their Lord, for which they are
making only minimal efforts. In their hearts, this life
takes the first place and Allah takes the second; in the
afterlife, they will find everything according to what was
their liking here on Earth. The inhabitants of both Paradises
will be perfectly pleased with their Lord: those who are in
the Divine Presence will be pleased, and the inhabitants of
the Gardens will also be pleased – everyone will be content.
Now, you are all free to chose: If you prefer physical
enjoyments, you will find what you are accustomed to, but
if, in this life, you cultivate love for your Lord in your
hearts, then, in that life, you will find His Presence.

For each group there will be eternal improvement – everyone
will be improving within their stations. Allah Almighty will
bestow on them ever increasing bounties, always corresponding
to their levels. For example, an immature child is not going
to enjoy the company of adults – he will rather seek the
company of other children – just as an adult will not be
content among children; and so, in the afterlife, each
will blossom on his own branch and will never look to his
position as being in the least deficient: there will be no
envy on the part of the inhabitants of the lower Paradise
in regards to those of the higher realms, for their
satisfaction with their Lord’s favour will be complete.

The effigy

A QUESTION WAS ASKED AT THIS POINT: “Mevlana, in the light
of these good tidings from the secrets of the Holy Qur’an,
namely: that Allah’s Mercy encompasses all, that the mere
assumption of Allah’s Mercy is sufficient for attaining it,
and that neither body nor soul will shoulder the blame for
bad actions and will thus escape punishment – in the light
of these teachings the element of fear seems to be negated.
So many of us came to Islam because of the fear of Hell that
we feel when we read about it in the Holy Qur’an; won’t this
news of Allah’s All-Embracing Mercy eliminate the fear of
Hell as a deterrent of bad actions?”

The Sheikh answered:

We can understand that punishment is Allah’s way of purifying
the servant for his entry into bliss. Many people will suffer
in their graves, on the Day of Resurrection and in the fires
of Hell. Absolute Justice will reprieve both body and soul
from punishment, and forgiveness will be granted; but from
those dirty actions which have come out of the interaction of
body and soul, Allah will create shapes in the exact likeness
of the sinners to represent them in Hell. This likeness or
effigy will be just as dirty as those actions were, and it
will stay in Hell until it is cleaned. In the face of this
punishment, one will suffer intensely – his shame will be so
great, and at that time so difficult to bear, that he will
wish for the Earth to swallow him.

There is a famous tradition (Hadith) from the Holy Prophet
which will shed more light upon the point in question. He
said that once a man died and was laid in his grave where
two Angels came to question him, saying: “Who is your Lord?
What is your religion? Who is your Prophet? And what is the
Book that he brought?” He withstood this interrogation and
gave all the correct answers, so that, when the angels left,
an opening formed in his grave and through this entered a
person of such beauty, elegance and delightful fragrance
that he couldn’t turn his eyes away from him. He had never
seen such a magnificent person, and his happiness at
beholding him was so great that, if it could have been
divided among the whole World, no one would have remained
sad. He asked that radiant person: “Oh my Lord’s servant,
who might you, be?” That person replied with the sweetest
voice: “I am your good actions. My Lord created me from the
good actions performed throughout your life, and now I am
your friend and companion forever.”

Then the Prophet went on to say that if, however, a person
has spent his life committing evil deeds and then, in his
grave, is not able to answer the questions of the Angels
correctly, there will come to him a person so ugly, so
vile and so wile impossible to imagine. How do you feel
when a scorpion or a cobra is creeping up upon you? The
disgust and repulsion he will feel at the sight of his
horrible shape will be far in excess of that, and he will
be thinking only of how he could escape from that grave,
but it is impossible and every way he turns he will be
facing that hideous apparition. You cannot imagine the
distress he will find himself in. Finally, that horrid
shape will take him in its arms and embrace him, exuding
such a stench, that if you were to smell it now, you would
not be able to eat for the next forty days.

Then the person in the grave will say: “I seek refuge in
Allah from you! Who are you?” The vile creature will
answer: “Don’t you recognize me? You were with me all
your life and you were very proud of me; I accompanied
you to so many bars, casinos and houses of ill repute, and
now you will not know me? I am your bad actions; I carried
you all your life, and now you must carry me – I shall be
with you until Judgement Day.” Then, he and his bad actions
will lie in that grave, and for that reason the grave is
called `the box of works’.

On the Day of Resurrection, Allah orders for the effigy of
those bad actions to be thrown into Hell, while the person
stands on the heights between paradise and Hell (Al-A’raf)
to observe, in a state of shame and contrition, the
punishment being dealt out to him, unto the form of his
bad actions. Then, finally, when he has been cleansed of
those dirty actions, he is freed of them and passes on to
the gates of Paradise. There he finds two springs, two
pools of water big enough for the whole Nation of Mankind
(Ummah) to bathe in. In the first spring, all those who
enter it will be transformed physically, so that they emerge
in a form befitting the inhabitants of Paradise: if they be
male, they will come out as handsome as the Prophet Yusuf
and if they be women, they will be transformed into
equivalent beauties.

From the second spring they will drink, and this drink
will eliminate all of the ego’s bad characteristics.
Both physically and spiritually clean, handsome and
excellent, they will pass through a gate so wide that one
billion people may pass at one time; but immediately on
entering Paradise, each one will find his own private way
to his own private Paradise, where he will be with his
loved ones.

That is the final destination, but along the way one will
encounter many troubles, as the results of bad actions are
sufferings. The Prophet said that his Nation (Umma) would
often find punishment in this life rather than in the next
and that each of those sufferings in this World would amount
to forgiveness there. This applies to all people after the
time of Muhammed, Peace be upon him, for now all people
belong to his Nation, whether they like it or not. There now
remains no Nation belonging to any of the former Prophets,
as their time has passed and gone. This is the time of the
Last Prophet, and, at the end of time, Isa (alai) will
return and announce that he and all Prophets before him
are followers of Muhammed, on whom be Peace.

The General Amnesty

Allah Almighty has created Hell for the purpose of cleaning
and purifying, as He does not like to make people suffer
without wisdom. This is Grandsheikh’s understanding and it
was also Sheikh Muhiyuddin Ibn al Arabi’s understanding of
the Holy Tradition (Hadith Qudsi): “My Mercy surpasses My
Anger.” Therefore, we may hope for the final outcome to be
a `General Amnesty’ for everyone, and we are pleased by that
prospect. For example, you may be in a palace full of every
comfort, but the fact that there are suffering people outside
your palace prevents you from being truly happy; when,
however, you learn that all those people have attained mercy
according to their levels, you will feel relieved and say:
“Now Allah has expanded His encompassing Mercy to everyone”.

It is a good manner to always think about our own egos as
being worthy of eternal punishment in Hell. We can hope for
reprieve only through Allah’s All-encompassing Mercy, and we
ought never to assume that we will be the first to enter
Paradise; instead, we should always think to ourselves: “I am
the worst and my ego is the dirtiest; were it not for Allah’s
Mercy, I would surely be destined for Hell. My only hope is His

In a famous hadith the Prophet, peace be upon him, is related
to have said: “To him who knows no mercy, no mercy will be
shown.” The merciless person in whose heart there is no wish
for mercy for anyone, he will himself not taste of mercy.
Mercy attracts more mercy, cruelty attracts cruelty, badness
draws badness and goodness draws goodness. But mercy dwells
in the hearts of all true believers and therefore, in the
face of the punishment, so many saints will run forward
offering to take the punishment of so many others upon
themselves – this is the degree of mercy and self sacrifice
their hearts have attained – however, it is not Allah’s way
to lay any burden or punishment on his saints in the
afterlife, nor to punish any individual for sins he has not

Sultan Al-Arifin, Abu Yazid Al-Bistami, once said: “Oh my
Lord, You have Power over all things and You have absolute
Power to do anything You wish to do; therefore, I am asking
You now to make my body so big as to fill the seven Hells,
so that no place remains for other people. Every punishment
You would give to Your people, pour it on me instead.”
Then came the Divine reply: “Oh My servant, are you trying
to compete with Me in generosity and mercy whereas I am the
Most Merciful of the Merciful (Arham-ur-Rahimeen), the Most
Generous of the Generous (Akram-ul-Akrameen)? All your
generosity and mercy is only like a drop in an endless
ocean compared to My Mercy and Generosity that I am giving
out to My servants every minute, and I demand of you no
blood sacrifice.”

Grandsheikh says” “Whenever I speak on this subject, I am
always asking Divine Permission to bring out more and more
good tidings of Allah’s endless Mercy and Generosity Now we
are giving these good tidings, and if you are not receiving
them with welcome, then you are only making yourselves suffer.
If there is anyone objecting and saying that there must be
eternal Hell, then he may go there. We are trying to pull
them into our Lord’s Mercy Oceans – but they intend to put
everyone in Hell, and they never think that they themselves
will enter it; therefore they are agonized and outraged by
our good tidings to the servants of our Lord.”


The bigness of man and the Greatness of the Creator

As-salamu alaikum!

Audhu bi-llahi mina shaitani rajim
Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
La haula wa la quwatta illa billahi-l ‘Aliyu-l ‘Azim

By the Name of Allah Almighty, most Merciful, most Beneficent and most

May Allah forgive me and bless you!… O people, ask forgiveness from
Allah Almighty and ask (Him) to look after you with His blessings!

We are humble people; physically we are so small. Sometimes (the) sun
(is) shining, there are rays coming and in it you are looking small
pieces lying in it that may be much more bigger than ourselves by
comparing (ourselves) with the universe. Physically we are so small;
through (the) universe you can’t be seen (and) even our (whole) solar
system (is) going to disappear. And our world, (the) planet that we
have been landed on it, it is going to be also disappearing. And
through (the) bigness of this planet our physical being (is) nothing,
but… The Lord of Heavens created ourselves and we were not in
existence; we are created ones and He is (the) Creator (and) every
created one (is) going to be nothing, as much as you can imagine a
bigness for this universe.

You may say: “(What about) billion times such a universe? What do you
think, o Sheikh?”

(But) I am saying: “Nothing.” “What do you think if we (may) have a
bigger universe than our universe trillion times? What do you think?”
I am saying: “Nothing.” You may say: “O Sheikh, if we are making that
universe bigger and bigger and bigger and saying quatrillion times on
it quatrillion times power – what do you think (about) that bigness?”
I am (still) saying: “Nothing.” Creatures, as much as your imagination
(is) going and (you are) thinking (they may be) bigger and bigger and
bigger, but (yet) we are on the level of creation and created; never,
you can’t make a comparison between creation’s bigness and (the)
Creator’s Greatness!

We may say ‘Allah the Great’, but we can’t say ‘Big Allah’. He is big
one? (No), He is Great One. Greatness that is absolute, (has) not an
end; absolute Greatness for our Lord Almighty Allah. But everything
that He created and run through your imagination, you may say bigger,
bigger, bigger, but – that is big, but Allah is the Great. Allah is
Great. (For) everything in creation you may say (for it) ‘little’,
‘small one’, ‘big one’, ‘bigger one’, ‘biggest one’, but by comparison
with the Greatness (of Allah Almighty) it is nothing. And we have been
granted from Allah Almighty not greatness, but to be big ones; (we may
say) big stars, big worlds, big galaxies, big universes, but you can’t
say ‘great galaxy’, no! You must understand this; new knowledge this

‘Big ones’ (you may say) for those that their existence (has) just
(been) granted from (the) Great Lord, the Lord of Creation. But,
Subhanallah – through our physical being our bigness is nothing,
(but,) Subhanallah, we have been granted something that your
imagination can’t reach to understand it, no, you can’t understand.
What is that? (It is) how Allah Almighty through His Greatness (is)
addressing to you, saying: “O my servants”, and that means (that) He
granted us something that it is not belonging to our physical being
and our material universe, (it is) never going to belong to that ones,
never granted from universes and galaxies and worlds and Heavenly
beings; (they are) never granted such a thing that the Lord of Heavens
granted to mankind and He is saying: “You (are) My successor on
earth!” And what is earth? What is (the) real earth and what is (the)
real addressing? To whom the Lord of Heavens was addressing that we
said: Through your material being (that) just disappeared, no more,
and His addressing no more can carry our physical being that

As Sayyidina Musa was asking: “O my Lord, let me to look You, to look
to You!” (And Allah Almighty was) saying: “Come!” He (Sayyidina Musa)
was asking to see, to look to his Creator and Allah Almighty was
saying: “You can’t see. With your material dressing and with your
physical sifat, characteristics (attributes), you can’t see!” You
can’t see, as long as you are dressed (as a) material being; it is so
small, that (even) if we may give it a bigness, to our physical being,
(so that it) may be (big like) such a universe, yet the addressing of
Allah Almighty should be (the same and He will say): “You can’t see
Me. As long as you are in your material being, you can’t see Me, but I
may take (you) (when) you may be isolated from your physical body. You
can’t, as long as you are through (a) physical form, you can’t see.”
And (He Almighty was) giving an example to know Moses and everyone: He
Almighty (was) sending one ray (on a huge mountain) – that you can’t
imagine (a) lessness for that appearance – (and) this huge mountain…
Uhhhh…. (it) just finished!

Therefore – insan, man – is such an extraordinary being among
creation; (the) biggest one among creation that is man. Man’s
creation, man’s structure (is) most important and (but) even though
they can’t be able to see, to look.

Now you, as long as you are with your physical being and as long as
you are interesting through your material being and (at the same time
you are) asking something from spirituality, from Heavenly positions,
you can’t reach. Either you must leave that or you should be mahrum,
deprived, you can’t be able to reach (the) second one that (physical
being is) never going to see Him, Almighty.

Therefore we are saying (that) we are so small ones. Doesn’t matter
(if) our physical being, (even) if it can be billion times (as big as)
such a universe, yet we are nothing. And on nothing can’t be seen any
appearance from Heavenly beings. Leave Allah Almighty, even (for)
Heavenly beings you can’t see. You can’t see; we may fall down, as a
thunder coming on a person, finished. But we have been granted such an
important real being that (is) never going to be affected through
Divinely Appearances – according to their levels. But if (you have)
not (reached to your Heavenly position), your physical form can’t
carry anything from spirituality. Therefore we have been ordered to
leave our material being.

Therefore – Sayyidina Abu Yazid, he came into (the) Divinely Presence
and (he was) asking: “O my Lord, let me enter in it!” And the Lord
(was) saying: “Leave your nafs, leave your ego and come!” That means:
Your ego that belongs to material world it is (the) biggest hindrance
for a person to reach to his Lord’s Divinely Presence. And first the
Seal of Prophets just left it; on the Night Journey he was not using
his physical being, no. (He) just changed; and (the) first step from
Haramu-l Mecca- sharafallah – (he was) rising on (the) Buraq, then (he
was) coming and (the) Buraq that belongs to and representing our
(spiritual or our) physical being, he left it and then (he was)
getting in (to the Divine Presence). He left his ride, (as it was said
that:) “You must leave it and then come!” (So) he left it (behind) and
(then he was) coming.

That is (the) honour of mankind. May be bigger and bigger and bigger
his physical being (like) billions (of) such a universe, but (that
bigness is) giving nothing to you or giving nothing, (no) any rights
to you to stand up even one foot over the earth! You can fall down.

Who is asking to move towards Heavens that they are not belonging to
material world, he must be able to stand up over the world even one
foot. That time he is ready for getting up. If (you) can’t do (that),
yet you are on (the) same level, (the) level of animals. Who is not
able to take up, to rise or to arise his feet from earth even one foot
distance, that means yet he is belonging to (the) material world and
he is wholly nafs; wholly his animal being just (is) appearing on
himself and he can’t get up. When (the) animal being just disappeared,
then you should be ready.

(The) Prophet – sallaLlahu alayhi wa sallam – was coming from Mecca
Mukarrama to Baitu-l Maqdis in Muwaqa Sharif. When (he was) reaching
there, he was reached to a position that he may arise (to Heavens) by
himself. Therefore (he was) leaving (the) Buraq Sharif, holy ride on
earth and then he (was) becoming to get up.

O people, we are not yet understanding about ourselves! Therefore –
(the) Prophet (was) saying that “Man arifa nafsa, faqad arifa
Rabbahu.” If you are not knowing about yourself, you can’t reach to
your Creator. First you must be able to understand about yourself.
That is a summary; I think from East and West (people are saying the
same or) in such a way, but some precious stones you can find in it
and they mean to say: “O people, try (not) to run after bigness on
earth. You are in need to reach a greatness through Heavens! As long
as you are running after bigness, your and (the) animals level (is
the) same (and) you can’t reach up!”

And (when the) Prophet was ready, instantly (he was) beginning to get
up, up. And his bigness (on earth) just finished and (then) it was
only an order from (the) holy Orders of Allah Almighty (that He was)
saying: “Be!” and (it was) becoming and Allah Almighty (was) just
putting on his (the Prophet’s) existence (the) existence of Heavenly
beings, dressing him from the Greatness of Heavens. Not from His (Own)
Greatness, but from the greatness of Heavens, till he reached
(further) up.

Therefore, now people are thinking that a religion, a belief, is
something that without practicing you may reach some degrees or
without trying yourself by some means of spirituality. They may think
that: “We reached to Allah”, (but it) can’t be! You may be (a) big
one, but you can’t be a great one.

May Allah forgive us and bless you, for the honor of the Seal of
Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad – sallaLlahu alayhi wa sallam, and (may
He) give us a good understanding. Peoples’ understanding (is wrong),
particularly in our days; they are understanding (a) wrong
understanding for Islam and for religions, for spirituality, for
Heavenly matters or (for) Heavenly levels or Heavenly beings. And only
you can find your way through one Tariqat (through a Sufi-Order); and
now whole Tariqats just stopped down, only (the) Naqshibandi
(Tariqat), (the) most distinguished Naqshibandi Order, (is) on. On,
and you can reach with that (one) only to your real position. That
means: when you are… (when it is) going to be taken away from yourself
everything that belongs to our material being, (when it is) taken
away, then you should be dressed. You should be dressed (by a)
Heavenly Dressing for an understanding. Or (If not) your are
understanding only (about the) level of animals – eating, drinking and
making children, sexual works, nothing else. As now people just fall
in it…

Allahumma, ya Allah, o our Lord, save ourselves from the hands of
satanic powers and make us to destroy (the) building of Batil, false, to make it
down and its supporter and teacher shaitan also to fall down! And I hope that
time now is over; coming, what we are asking, now (is) approaching and people
should be taken away from themselves (those) that they are asking to be big ones
and instead (to be) big ones (on earth) they (people) should reach a greatness
in (the) Divinely Presence of the holy Creator.
