The honor of the Ka'bah, Baytullah, is not from its physical existence, its 4 walls. If it were, it would be called Baytu Ibrahim. If the construction of Ibrahim is so honorable, what about the creation of Allah? What about you, O Insan? If power was only physical, Allah (swt) would have made the elephant speak instead of the ant in the Holy Quran."Follow the path of him who turns to Me. (31:15)" Are the Jews or the Christians following the Divine command when they produce and sell all these lethal weapons?

After Fajr this morning Mawlana spoke about the good tidings of the previous Holy night, "Laylatu l-Barā’at". Mawlana also said that this is a sohbat about who Man is.
Jun23 2013 Turkish 42min
(This sohbet was given when the Ikhwani-l Muslimin were still ruling Egypt.)
Everything is created for Man and Man is created only for Allah. S. Adam (as) was sent to this Earth as a Sultan. Scoundrels can never understand this, and therefore all the fighting, killing and chaos results. O Egyptians, who are proud to be the cradle of civilization, learn your lessons from your history. Cleopatra, a woman, sat on the throne of Egypt and ruled - a challenge for even the strongest of men! In what way did she win the hearts of the Egyptians to be able to rule them?

Kuheylan: A Pure Arabian Horse
Jun21 2013 Turkish 38min
Do not be a donkey carrying burdens, be a "Kuheylan", carrying the Sultan. The highest honor is in that secret, in carrying the Amanat (the Trust). O Man, Allah gave you honor and gave you the power to keep it. Keep your honour and the honour of others and know that no one ever can honour you more than Allah (swt) has already. O Shi'a and Alawi, do not kill Allah's creation, do not destroy what Allah made. Learn Adab and become human, do not remain a wild animal. A wild animal is the beloved of shaytan, so be a Man and become the beloved of Shahi Mardan.
For Whom the Sun Was Stopped
Jun20 2013 Turkish 36min
Mawlana asks the Azhar ash-Sharif and all 'Alims, why they are not telling the people about the power given to them? Why are they not teaching the stories in the Quran? Do they think it is a book of bedtime stories with no relevance? One Basmallah from S Suleyman (as) made the sultanate of Balqis shake. Which of the European states has a sultanate equal to that of Balqis? The Jews go to cry at the Wailing Wall. That is not worship! Worship is to make sajdah and cry in Diwan. Wake up and learn about yourself!
The Very Big Bear
Jun19 2013 Turkish 43min
Do not sleep! Wake up and keep your eyes open! Look in the mirror to witness the new image every time you look. Is Baytullah, the house of Allah, the Ka'bah, empty? Where is the Ka'bah? In Makkah lies the one built by S. Ibrahim (as), but where is its reality? O Man, learn your honour. Allah created this whole magnificent world for Adam (as) who is so tiny. He (swt) did not say that 'sajdah' is only for Me. The Divine command was make sajda for Adam.This is such a big secret! O son of Adam, make sajda to become Hazrat Insan, and not to remain "The Very Big Bear"!

Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves
Jun18 2013 Turkish 34min
The seeker of Truth can find its traces even in a folktale like that of "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves". Adab is the highest point on the way and with it the door opens. Know that Allāh ﷻ did not send you to this world empty-handed. Your capital grows with you as you grow. "O mankind, indeed you are labouring toward your Lord with [great] exertion and will meet it" (84:6). No, Mawlānā says, "And you will meet Him ﷻ."
Dresses from Heaven
Jun17 2013 Turkish 48min
Thank Allah for having created you and having created you so beautiful. The most beautiful creature is man and the most beloved is man. Know that in the whole of creation, the sultan is you. Then, how can you ever get sad? "فَاذْكُرُونِي أَذْكُرْكُمْ وَاشْكُرُوا لِي وَلَا تَكْفُرُونِ - So remember Me; I will remember you. And be grateful to Me and do not deny Me."(2:152) Every prophet came to dress his nation with Divine dresses. The Prophet sas preferred the dress of servant-hood to that of sultanate. O Man know the value of what you have been granted and keep it.
An Interview by Al Jazeera
Jun17 2013 Arabic 19min
Al Jazeera channel was preparing a program about "Islam in Cyprus" and asked to meet with Mawlana. Mawlana accepted. In order to avoid getting him tired, we asked them not to burden Mawlana with questions or with a long meeting, they promised and gracefully kept their promise.
The interview proceeded to flow naturally after this with Mawlana giving them a taste of the love, wisdom, and hope, which characterizes his message. The camera crew responded with love and happiness. The whole interview was short but sweet and beautiful. The TV crew left asking for permission to return and sit again another time in the presence of Mawlana.
The Sajdah for Adam
Jun16 2013 Turkish 41min
Al-Hawariyyun (the Disciples) asked for a table from Heaven. As-Sahabah Al-Kiram (The Companions) each wrapped a stone against his stomach, yet did not ask. The Prophet (sas), The Master of Creation, had 2 stones wrapped against his stomach. Know what you want and what you are after. If the whole world was yours, what would be the value without 'Ishq. The real goal is the Sultan. Without the Sultan, what is the value of the Palace? Know the one for Whom "The Sajdah for Adam" was actually made.
Is There More? (50:30)
Jun15 2013 Turkish 46min
Yesterday after Fajr, Mawlana gave this important Sohbat about the sudden storms and heavy rains that are battering many parts of the world and reached Turkey yesterday. Mawlana also spoke about the Fatwa that was issued by Sheikh Qaradawi and other respectable Islamic authorities concerning the war in Syria.
The Girdle of Service
Jun14 2013 Turkish 31min
"وَخُلِقَ الْإِنسَانُ ضَعِيفًا - and Man was created weak"(4:28). Yet Man is granted a station higher than the angels. People are looking for the treasures under the ground and never seeing the treasures in themselves. Serve in order to be worthy of "The Girdle of Service" and the Presence of the Sultan. The one who is not in the service of the Sultan is in the service of the filth of this world. "إِنَّمَا الْمُشْرِكُونَ نَجَسٌ - Indeed the Mushriks are unclean" (9:28). Know that for the honour of the Most Beloved sas 18,000 worlds were created.
Jun13 2013 Turkish 47min
We have to know why we were created otherwise our life is wasted. People are busy filling their stomachs and never worry about their hearts. The stomach needs the toilet but the heart yearns for the Lord. A man without love is dry wood, good only for the fire. If Man knew who Man was, he would never fight. If you want to fight, fight your ego. Look up to find the honour you seek. Know that if Allah Wills, an ant can carry the whole world.
Mounts of Light
Jun12 2013 Turkish 37min
Physical power is not what distinguishes man. If it did, then a donkey would be more honourable than a man. What keeps us on our feet is Ma‘nawiyyat (spirituality). Nowadays people, however, are worse than donkeys. Not only do they kick each other, but they also kill, destroy and torture one another. Have mercy on those on Earth, so the One in Heavens ﷻ has Mercy on you. Keep adab with Allāh ﷻ, so that Allāh Almighty keeps you. In the month of Sha‘bān, “Mounts of Light” descended from the Heavens carrying Nūr. 7000 more angels are still waiting for the order to descend.
The Sohbat of the Zero
Jun11 2013 Turkish 46min
Your Happiness lies in realizing yourself, your identity, who you are. Have all the things you learned so far brought you closer to yourself? Learn the secrets of the zero, the medal of non-being. If it was not for the One, you would remain only a zero. You keep collecting zeros to grow, but after a certain number of zeros you will not be able to read yourself any more. There are endless levels of knowledge and only the master can take you to yourself. Adab Ya Hu.
