In this morning's important sohbat, Mawlana asks who the beloved ones are. They are the believers who have nothing of the love of Dunya in their hearts. They are the ones who spend their lives "Struggling In The Way Of Allah". Mawlana is very angry with the Muslims for not showing enough respect for the Prophet (sAs) and for leaving his way. Mawlana gives a strong address to the Egyptians, the Iranian President, and to Mr. Ekmeleddin of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.
Seek the Petrol!
Mar08 2013 Turkish 43min
Power, respect, and beauty are not individual achievements but are the bounty of Allah Almighty given to His obedient servants. Muslims do not look for the eternal heavenly jewels but instead they look for the black, stick, smelly, oil under the Earth. Allah Almighty orders His servants, "Iltamisu Nura - Seek the Nur" (57:13). What Muslims do, however, is to "Iltamisu Nifta - Seek the Petrol!". For this they sacrifice their humanity and spiritual well-being.
He Could Not Save Himself
Mar07 2013 Turkish 38min
Mawlana asks, How can "He Who Could Not Save Himself" save others? Without spirituality Man is like a flower cut off the tree; his life and his usefulness are limited. He cannot give real life to himself or to others. A Man without spirituality is an image without a reality. Islam is exalted; it allows no images, no idols. Remember the grave in order to know the true value of this world!

Mawlana tells us to seek the Saints of Allah, "AwliyauLlah", whether living or in their graves. They are the bearers of Divine Light for the Ummah. They are the inheritors of the Prophet (sAs), the doors to Allah Almighty. They take the ones who hold their hands to whatever stations they reach. But people have lost the reality of their human nature and have therefore also lost their way to the "AwliyauLlah".
The Righteous Ones' Day
Mar05 2013 Turkish 45min
Mawlana speaks about, "The Righteous Ones' Day". What does it mean to be Righteous (صالح) ? Mawlana warns the proud ones, who are blinded by their own importance, to keep Adab with their Lord. He also calls upon the Christians to be humble enough to see through the falsehood of their claims and come to the True Way of Allah.
The Beloved Ones
Mar03 2013 Turkish 54min
What gives distinction to human life is the search for "The Beloved Ones". By means of the sad story of the one who, seeking a full life, sold everything, left his village, and went to Istanbul. Only then did he realize that what makes a life full is not the number of objects or people that fill it but rather "The Beloved Ones". By then it was too late. Islam commands, "O servants of Allah, Be brothers - وكونوا عباد الله إخوانا" but without being servants you cannot be brothers, 'Beloved ones'.
The Islamic Constitution
Mar02 2013 Turkish 37min
Man is created to be the Khalifa of Allah on Earth but shaytan's envy misleads him. Allah sent the Prophet (sAs) to guide and protect Man against his enemy. Mawlana is angry with all those who misguide mankind and shed their blood. He warns Christians to learn from their Pope and to give up their false ideas. He gives a strong warning also to Iranians, Saudis, Ikhwanis, and all false Madhdhabs, and also to all the 'Ulamas who remain silent about what they know.
Questions to Christians

Mawlana addresses some difficult questions to the Christians.
The Thinking Animal
Mar01 2013 Turkish 52min
Man, blinded by his physical achievements, raises himself up until he becomes "The Thinking Animal", an animal that might be able to think. But if he is really thinking, why does he leave Way of Allah in which he is the master of all creation, Hz Insan, and become an animal? Mawlana also poses some difficult questions to the Christians concerning the trinity.

Who is "The Loser"? Mawlana asks. The Prophet (sAs) said, "Whose two days are equal, is a loser! - من استوى يوماه فهو مغبون". What gives the day value is gaining knowledge that brings us closer to Allah. Mawlana praises the Pope who had the courage to see through the falsehoods of his people. Mawlana prays Allah for a Sultan who can direct the steps of the people towards their Lord Almighty (swt).

People have left their traditional ways that used to enrich their humanity and now they run after modern ways that feed only their physicality. If people followed Allah's Way and kept His Zikr, they would not need to scream "We're Hungry!" in the streets and fight with each other. Muslims need a Sultan; one Sultan for all Muslims.

Honey is described in Quran as "فِيهِ شِفَاءٌ لِّلنَّاسِ - in which there is healing for men" (16:69). If what the bee gives us has such a power than what about the Word that Allah gives us, The Quran? Muslims trust the weapons that are designed to destroy humanity but they leave what Allah has designed to restore humanity. In realizing, "O My Lord, You Are My Only Aim - إلهي أنت مقصودي" lies the realizing of the power of BismiLlah.

They have forgotten Allāh ﷻ, so He ﷻ has forgotten them" (9:67). Mawlānā asks, who are the forgotten ones? They are the people of hell. Then who are the people of Paradise? They are those who remember Allāh ﷻ. They are the ones who have the mark of light on their foreheads. So Learn how to protect yourself and your children.

Mawlana tells the story of the famous Ottoman diamond, "Kashiji Elmasi - the Diamond of the Spoon-Seller." Only the Jeweler knows the difference between stones and their true value. The Muslims of today are blinded by the devil to the value of the Diamonds granted to them by their Lord Almighty.
Under the Banner
Feb22 2013 Turkish 43min
On Friday after Fajr prayer, Mawlana reminded us of the honor bestowed on Mankind by their Lord Almighty. Man has to know this and keep the honor and the way of the Awliya Allah. People believe in the magnetic power of metal but not in the spiritual power of the Awliya. Each Wali has a banner and whoever walks "Under The Banner" receives Divine protection and support.
Dunya Is a Marketplace
Feb21 2013 Turkish 45min
"Dunya Is a Marketplace" so man has to learn the true value of what he has, what he gives and takes. In his ignorance and heedlessness man forgets the crown given him by his Lord Almighty for the honor of His Beloved (sAs). Then he becomes the victim of his enemy, shaytan.
The Adab of Tariqah
Feb20 2013 Turkish 10min
Some of the students of Adnan Hoca (Harun Yahya) came to visit Mawlana. Through himself and, by means of a beautiful story, Mawlana gives example of Adab and humility.
The Sultan Is The One Who Gives
Feb20 2013 Turkish 40min
The life of Modern Man has been reduced to the basic physical acts - eating, drinking, and... The so-called sophistication of modern life basically means that there is more of the physical, more resemblance to animal life. That is why Modern Man cannot appreciate anymore the magnificence of his ancestors who wrote majestic pages of history by holding to Allah's Shariah and keeping the Basmalah Sharifah.
