In the three holy months, day and night mercy is coming down. Allāh ﷻ granted these months to be an honour for the ummah of Muḥammad ﷺ. Those who respect and are busy worshiping in these months will progress immediately; easily reaching the pleasure of Allāh ﷻ. Who stays away from sin will feel the taste if īmān in his heart. Don’t leave your nights free. Pray and pay attention to the awrād sharīf.
Guard Your Honour
Dec22 1989 Turkish 17min
Allāh has given us honour and we must guard it. It is not our way to celebrate Christmas and New Years or to be drunk and spend money. A record is kept. If we become dirty, the only way to get clean is by asking forgiveness.

In his second visit to Kayseri, Mawlana praises the place as the path of the Sahabas on their way to Constantinople. There are so many secret maqams and holy places never entered by the unbelievers.

What Is Islām?
Jul08 1989 Turkish 25min
Do not find fault with Time, the fault is with ourselves. Being Muslim means to keep the good and leave the bad. Instead of collecting the goods of this world you should collect good deeds in Ākhirah. Those who pray from their youth, have a special place with the prophets in Ākhirah.
Understanding the Qur’ān
Jun26 1989 Turkish 10min
Everything that exists is of Allāh’s ﷻ Creation. He ﷻ is the Lord of Majesty and Perfection. He ﷻ sent the Holy Qur’ān to be able to be understood, learned and acted upon. Everyone will take a share from its Endless Oceans. Everything is a manifestation of Allāh ﷻ. It is the blind only who cannot see.
Who is the Ignorant?
Jun26 1989 Turkish 9min
Ignorance doesn't come from illiteracy. It comes from the ego pretending to be knowledgeable while ignoring the orders of Allāh ﷻ.
Your Share of Dunya

Maulana advises about qualifying for the biggest profit: The honour of beholding the Beauty of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala.

Jun17 1989 Turkish 8min
On a young lady becoming Muslim, Mawlānā recited this poem:
Keep Allāh's Name with every breath
With Allāh's Name all work is complete

Sins fall away like autumn leaves
Pure is the one who remembers the Name of the Purest
The 'Alims of The Ummah

The Enemies of shaytan
Jun16 1989 Turkish 23min
Shayṭān Is Jealous of Him ﷺ
Apr03 1989 Turkish 27min
Shayṭān’s campaign is to destroy Islām by targeting the Chosen One ﷺ. It was deprived of our Master’s ﷺ rank therefore, vowed to misguide his ﷺ nation. It gathered all its falsehood to realize this aim but the Possessor of Absolute Might ﷻ cannot be challenged. His ﷻ name is linked with the name of His ﷻ most precious one ﷺ and shayṭān is jealous of him ﷺ.
Whose Gathering to Attend
Apr03 1989 Turkish 7min
You are free to join the gatherings of good people who say the Name of Allah. If your heart is content then go because the heart is in need of association. But if they smoke, leave them. The smell of tobacco is dirty and the angels do not come.
