Allah did not create you to carry dunya. He made you to be His khalifa, the sultan of dunya but you haven't understood what that means. The ones who don't understand are in the streets, the few who do understand are hidden. The Prophet (sas) taught his companions the true value of dunya by means of their shadows. You made a pledge to Allah that He is your only Lord and you have broken it.
The Ocean of Anguish

Everywhere people are suffering. Why? Because they lost their identity. They no longer know who they are. They do not know their value, role nor mission. All they know now is "The Ocean Of Anguish"!
Kiss The Hand
Aug11 2013 Turkish 28min
Allah created nafs/ego to serve Man, and did not create Man to serve his ego. Serving Allah gives you satisfaction and pleasure. Serving the ego leaves man always hungry. No matter how much he gets, like Hell, its never enough. Do not look at earth, look to Heavens. The love of saints is the way to the love of the Prophet(sas), and the love of the Prophet(sas) leads you to the love of Allah.
The Fire Of Desire
Aug10 2013 Turkish 34min
Allah gave man a beautiful form. What completes this is beautiful manners. But like a chicken digs for worms, man digs for gold and silver. Man has become dirty like this dirty dunya. And now from everywhere there are fires. These are the fires of amibition and lust and they will destroy mankind.

Mawlana says Ramadan and Eid are finished and now what's "After Eid"? We are weak, but we have 'inayiah, we are taken care of. The ant is so weak that no one ever expects anything from it, yet it never stops working hard and fulfilling its mission. O Man, learn and realize who you are and what you are promised!

Who Is the Sultan?
Aug07 2013 Turkish 39min
Maru'a is courage that arises from man's humanity. May we be increased in it. Why do you think you are here? Did you come for eating and drinking? For fighting and amassing wealth? Think about it because an hour of thinking is worth more than 70 years of worship. Our way is gold. Seek the One on whose order the universe moves, the Owner of Creation. Don't fight over the world, look for its Sultan.
The Last Day of Ramaḍān
Aug07 2013 Turkish 4min
It is the last day of Ramaḍān and everyone will leave their fasting and praying to run after dunyā. "Keep to the clean path," says Mawlānā, “Dont run with the sewer rats.” If you invite the Sulṭān ﷻ then you will eat from His ﷻ heavenly table.
The Foundation Of Protocol
Aug06 2013 Turkish 44min
The lesson for today is on Tashrifat - being honored. It is a Divine Protocol that determines the honor of each creature. The Prophet (sas) is number one but every creature big and small has its own tashrifa because it was honored by being created by the Lord Most HIgh. From the Prophet to the ant, each has its honor and its name on the list of protocol. So respect that honor and learn the Science, the Foundation of Protocol.
Take Off Your Shoes (20:12)
Aug05 2013 Turkish 40min
Man is a speaking creature and by speaking spiritual words he gains honor. It was by Allah's speaking to them that the great prophets were honored. To Musa (as) it was said: "Ikhla Nalayk" (20:12). Take off the shoes of worldliness and come to the Presence of Allah, to the station of 'Tuwa'. But Allah in His Great Majesty is not a doorman to remove shoes at the door! So who was it that spoke these words to the Prophet Musa?
The Manifestation Of Power

This morning, the morning of Laylatu-l Qadir, in the sohbat of Shah-i Mardan, Mawlana spoke about the Tajalli that happens in Laylatu-l Qadir. Mawlana showed how this holy night is related to the very existence of Man and his tragic fall.
Laylatul Qadir-Sakala Sharif

Laylatu l-Qadr, Laylatu l-Qurb
Aug03 2013 Turkish 28min
The Night of Power is the Night of Nearness. This is what man was created for. He was not created to be a donkey bearing the burden of Dunyā. He was granted great honour. Everything in creation falls into sajdah this night, even the ants. This is the honour given to Ādam (as). Try to keep it.
Stand Devoutly Before Allah (2:238)
Aug02 2013 Turkish 44min
The tiger told the Dervish, ride on my back because we serve the servant of the Lord. And while the Disciples were asking for the Lord's table, S. Isa (as) was asking for the Lord's Pleasure. Learn and understand! Know that the way is through adab and the head of all adab is the Divine command, "وَقُومُوا لِلَّهِ قَانِتِينَ - Stand Devoutly Before Allah (2:238) "
Relate The Stories (7:176)
Aug01 2013 Turkish 33min
True power is from Heavens not from Earth. Ilm (Knowledge) is the key to all power. What is the secret of Ilm? It is Adab. Therefore, "Relate The Stories (7:176)". Stories are the food of the spirit. " إِنَّ أَرْضِي وَاسِعَةٌ - indeed My earth is spacious (29:56)", so follow its ways and do not let your made-up structures blind you to its reality. Relate the stories and take your share of the Tajalli of Ar-Rahman.
What Is Niqab?
Jul31 2013 Turkish 38min
As Yunus the poet says, O Lord why are You veiled? Why can't we see Your Beautiful Face? Allah veils His Beauty from those who cannot appreciate it. The veiling keeps the Beauty pure. Just so men and women should not expose their beauty to whom it is not lawful. They expose themselves to evil eye that steals their beauty and diminishes their light. All the prophets were veiled. Follow their example and do not expose yourself to the world.
In The Likeness Of Uj
Jul30 2013 Turkish 38min
The quality of the people of today is gluttony. They eat and eat and are never satisfied even if they swallow a whole elephant. They are like the giant Uj ibn Unuq. When they are finished they say, Hal min Mazid. - isn't there any more? These are the words of hell and they are the people of the hellfire. No one is teaching them either their own value or the value of Dunya. Ask for forgiveness.
