Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Please see below a recent sohbat by Sultan ul Awliya Moulana Sheikh Nazim Al Haqqani (may Allah Almighty increase his ranks and fulfill his hearts desires). The text below has been copied and pasted from Saltanat.
As-Salamu Alaikum ayyuhal hadhirun, salams on those who are attending. Attending to what?
Salams on those who attend the gatherings Allah (swt) loves. Marhaban bikum. Marhaban,
marhaban. Shukur Allah that He (swt) made us get up in health and safety. He (swt) granted us
the rest of the night-time and we woke up having rested. Allah's grants and favors on His
believing servants are endless. Al Hamdulillah, we slept comfortably and woke up comfortably.
Allah Almighty does not crush His servant but the servant crushes himself. Sleep with Hamd and
get up with Shukur.
As-Salamu Alaikum O attending ones. May there be safety upon you, peace be upon you O
attending believers! We may say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim and receive power. Bismillahi rRahmani
r-Rahim. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar. When He (swt) created the Holy
Pen and ordered it to write on the Preserved Tablet, He (swt) said "Write!" From the majesty of
that address, the nib of the pen split. A pen (quill) has two things, right? The nib of the quill in
the old times had two things. When the order "Write!" came, from the majesty of that address
the nib of the Holy Pen cracked and, we call it now "ink" but whatever it was that will write upon
the Holy Order, the ink that will write it immediately started to spill through the Holy Pen.
"What should I write O my Lord?" The order came "Write Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim".
Write, Adhamat Al-Hudara.
Because of the majesty of Allah's (awj) address the nib of the Holy Pen cracked and the ink
started to spill. It is the ink of Malakut. When the address of "Write!" came, it asked "What
should I write O Lord?" "Write Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim". Al Hamdulillah. Who glorifies
the Bismillah, is himself glorified. Who shows respect for the Bismillah is shown respect. Who
doesn't respect is not respected, becomes fertilizer. Therefore the holy awliyas and from them,
Sulaiman Chalabi. He is the one who wrote Mawlid al-Sharif right? He said in the Turkish
language "May we remember the Name of Allah first. It is obligatory for every servant in every
act". How beautifully did he say: "May we remember Your Name first O Allah, It is obligatory
on that servant in his every breath. It is obligatory on every servant in all his acts".
Allah Allah. It took the Holy Pen 700 years to write the Bismillah. What it wrote was Bismillahi
r-Rahmani r-Rahim. The knowledge and Divine Light put in that Bismillahi r-Rahmani rRahim no
one can know. The Prophets know however much Almighty Lord told them. Say
Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Show respect for the Order of Allah Almighty and don't fear
from any kind of weapons. What a beautiful teaching; we recite it and joy and happiness comes
inside, Shaykh Mehmet Effendi. It is said that it wrote for 700 years. What realities...The realities
to be known by us look like the inside of this. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim is sent down to our
Prophet (sas). He said it and some horizons opened. He saw an ocean of Nur when he said
Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim.
O our Lord, our Subhan, Our Sultan! It is not an easy matter to remember Your Holy Name.
Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim.
Masha Allah! It satisfies man; satisfies his external and inner being. It gives such a power that it
can throw the West to the East and the East to the West. The power of that Bismillah cannot be
measured but it is like this according to our understanding. What we should say is the Bismillah.
If we teach people only the Bismillah until the end of the world and we learn also, it is enough for
us. Shukur Allah that He (swt) found us worthy of the Bismillah and the Bismillah descended
upon the Great Prophet (sas), on his nation. Allahu Akbarul Akbar. We can't appreciate it as we
should. There was the first era of ignorance before our Prophet (sas). The sign of the second
ignorance is, AstaizuBillah,Bismillahir-Rahmanir-Rahim "Wa Qarna Fi Buyutikunna WaLa
Tabarrajna Tabarruja Al-Jahiliyati Al-'Ula"(33:33). The ladies should keep to their houses just
like a pearl which never stays in the open. A pearl remains in its shell. It remains in that shell, not
in the open. There are many rocks, stones that are in the open. But for pearl, it has a protective
case. It remains in that case.
Allah Almighty granted such a respect for the ladies also and said: "Wa Qarna Fi Buyutikunna"
"I granted you such a thing that I don't throw you in the middle". Women are who are granted
the tajalli of jamal (the manifestation of beauty). And men have the manifestation of jalal
(majesty). Men can be seen outside. They have their muscular strength. Ladies are in the
manifestation of jamal (beauty) attribute and they stay in their homes like the pearls. "Wa La
Tabarrajna Tabarruja Al-Jahiliyati Al-'Ula" This it what they were like in the first era of
ignorance. When it said "'Ula" in the Verse, there is a sign for the coming of the second era of
ignorance. "Al-Jahiliyati Al-'Ula", in the first era of ignorance men and women were all mixed
up. It says "Stay in your homes. You are like pearls and you should remain in your shell, in your
home, not outside! "Wa La Tabarrajna Tabarruja Al-Jahiliyati Al-'Ula" Don't go out dressing up
like they did in the first era of ignorance.
This is the order. But people now are all in the streets, women and men touching, squeezing each
other and show off this way. This is a lie! Allah Allah...Allah! Shaytan made mankind fall into
such a state. Mankind listens to shaytan today but doesn't listen to the Prophet. And because they
don't listen, whips on top of whips come on them. O people, say! We start with the Name of
Allah. Whosoever remembers Your Pure Name is purified. It is the Holy Name of our Lord that
is mentioned in the Bismillah. With the Name of Allah every work is completed. Take from its
Nur, its power and your every work becomes easy. Every work becomes easy. But they don't
teach this. Shaytan does not allow it to be taught.
They invent gods for themselves other than Allah. This thing of that person, that person... They
respect them, hang their portraits... May they be hanged. And they will be hanged. If not here,
they will be hanged in the akhirah over the fire. May Allah protect us from it. Allah Almighty
says "Don't accept any God other than Me". "Wa La Tad`u Min Duni Llahi Ma La Yanfa`uka"
(10:106) There is no any other God for you other than Me. I am the God. Other imitated ones
are shaytan. Don't follow them. Listen to Me. But you don't listen. Ok then. I leave you to whom
you worship and you'll see what the shaytan you follow does to you when you leave Me.
Here is the 21st century. Here is the humiliation of man. Shaytan corrupted, humiliated
mankind and still they are following the deputies of shaytan. Every nation made up their own
one: they put their statues, paint their portraits, quote their words... Leave this! Leave this
animal-hood! Return to your Lord. "Arji`i 'ila Rabbiki Radiyatan Mardiyatan" (89:28) Return to
your Lord and your Lord be pleased with you, as You are already pleased with Him. Shaytan
dishonoured the children of Adam! He made them to forget Bismillahir- Rahmanir-Rahim,
didn't let them say it. If they said it, there would be mercy in their hearts. There would be
compassion. When he didn't let them say it, the feelings of mercy and compassion are taken from
their hearts and they left no young or old ones; these traitors, the servants of shaytan brought
mankind into misery. May Allah make them miserable.
Put them (portraits) down! Don't put it in a high position. Put the Holy Name of Allah Almighty
high. And what is That Name? Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. They put it down and put the
portraits. Masha Allah! Bravo! Did the Ottomans put portraits in their assemblies for 700 years
or did they put the Holy Name of Allah? Shame! Shame and fear, when the Heavenly Wrath hits
on your heads like a sledgehammer you will understand but it will be too late. Return to the
Bismillah. Put down the portraits. Our address is for Turks, for Arabs also, for India, from East
to West. This is an address for all who say "I am Muslim". Put down the portraits! Put the Holy
Name of Allah (jj). Put Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. If you don't put you can find no goodness.
You will finish each other. Neither your laws nor your parliament can solve it.
O Lord, O our Lord. We have no one left to teach us these ways. Tawba Ya Rabbi, Tawba Ya
Rabbi, tawba Astaghfirullah. We may say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim and be saved. "Shaykh
Effendi, what are you saying? There are things coming to us from America, from other places..."
Even if it comes from Gog and Magog, it has no value! The instruments and weapons in the
hands of Gog and Magog can wipe out yours at an instant! Gog and Magog will come. These
people say "Americans sent us this weapon. Germans sent these things. Russia threatens us this
much..." What threat? Do they have the power you have in your hand? If one wali of Allah says
Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim he can close all the borders, he can close the air space too. "We
close the air space too".
You mess it up! Who is not under the Heavenly protection of Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim is
open to any thing, any kind of calamity can come on them. Tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, snows
rain on people! Yet there is more to come. When the earth quakes, it will not leave anything on
it. They built Nimrod towers. They built Nimrod towers. They will be gone with the ones in
them. "Don't enter them, don't live in them", angels say like this. For the people who want to add
another floor after the second one, they say: "O children of Adam, what are you doing? Are you
building towers like Nimrod?" Angels accuse them like this. "What you do is a shame". "'Inna
'Ardi Wasi`atun Fa'iyaya Fa`buduni" (29:56). Allah Almighty says "The earth is spacious, it is
wide enough for you". Why do you, all of you, gather in one place and pile up on top of each
other? So that all of you can be finished at once?! Don't be Nimrod! They say 15 million people
live in Istanbul. Is this logical? The whole country is emptied and everyone piled up in Istanbul.
Where is the government? What is this?
Allah (jwa) says ""'Inna 'Ardi Wasi`atun". The dunya (earth) I settled you in is "Wasi`atun"
(spacious). Tanwin is for emphasizing. Tanwin, "Wasi`atun" "The earth is spacious" He (swt)
says, Fa'iyaya Fa`buduni", Worship Me alone. Life is not only in Istanbul. The whole earth
belongs to Me and it is spacious, all of you can fit in it. But they don't say Bismillahi r-Rahmani rRahim.
Ok, don't say. When they don't say, there are things to come on them. The Bismillah, we
may say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. From seven times to forty times, from forty times to a
hundred times say the Bismillah. If you don't it will collapse on your heads!
May Allah watch over the attending ones. What will protect mankind, the children of Adam, is
Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Continue reciting it, even if it is only seven times daily. Recite
the Bismillah 40 times, 70 times or 100 times and experience its goodness. You should make
sajda. If you don't make sajda such a calamity will be sent on you that no doctors or judges can
cure it. Only Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. If one says this, he doesn't need any doctor or
judge. O our Lord, for the honour of Your Beloved, O Habib, O Rasulullah, show us Mercy.
Send us from Your lions that they correct us. That they finish shaytan and those who are with
May Gog and Magog eat them. Gog and Magog eat whatever they find softer than rocks, Sh
Mehmet Effendi. They will eat whatever they find. Like now they say bacterias eat up, Gog and
Magog will come, they will not even leave the bones of the people. They will eat up and people
ask "Where did he go?" He disappeared! What keeps Gog and Magog away is Bismillahi rRahmani
r-Rahim. Allah! Subhan Allah. Sultan Allah. I am weak. Qawwi dha'fana fi ridaq O Lord, I only want
Your pleasure. We should remember our Almighty Lord's Name. Put down the portraits! If not, one
day its doors get locked and can't be opened. A fire starts inside and burns all those who are in the
parliament. A fire starts when they are fighting in the parliament, the ceiling falls down on them and
they get burned like logs are burned. They should be careful! Tawba Ya Rabbi, tawba Astaghfirullah.
This is not the fear of Russia, or fear of Iran or fear of America. This is a fire that burns in an instant.
Aman ya Rabbi, tawba Ya Rabbi.
Pray daily! Cover your heads! Don't wander in the streets! Go back to your village, to your place!
If not, when those Nimrod towers collapse, no one in them will remain. They say the population
is 14 million. Maybe a 100 thousand of them remain. It will sweep with the buildings. They still
say "We will build a third city inside Istanbul..." Leave this! Leave this and send everyone back to
their places. "Bi kulli makana makeen". Is it not so? Every place has its own inhabitants. Don't
collect the whole world into the cities. It will collapse instantly. Half of the world's population will
go in this quake May Allah forgive us. We should turn back to Allah, hold on to the Bismillah
and be saved in dunya and in akhirah.
Ya Rabbi tawba Ya Rabbi, Tawba Ya Rabbi, tawba Astaghfirullah. Bismillahi r-Rahmani rRahim.
Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. The cure for all our troubles is Bismillahi r-Rahmani rRahim. May all
troubles go away from us. Dunya turned into a hospital. They can't catch up with the patients. Say
Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim instead of cutting people! Aman Ya Rabbi, tawba Ya Rabbi. For the
honour of Your Beloved O Allah, may You send us a Master, a Sultan O Lord! Amin. Al-Fatiha.
May Allah bless you all
