Good ones will be with good ones. When good men are married to good women, Allāh ﷻ shows His ﷻ forgiveness for them, rizq increases and it brings light and comfort. Shayṭān is working to destroy marriage especially in western countries. People are following their ego and not what Allah ﷻ ordered; after ten or twenty years wanting a different spouse. It may be that you fall in love with another one, but you must keep your belief stronger than your love. The Prophet ﷺ said those who die from love, die as shahīd. So, don’t give a chance for your ego to finish you.
Be Careful from Dirtiness
Jan18 2018 Turkish 15min
Beware of impure, evil things. Watch what you eat and drink; that it does not have impure things in it. Because when you eat them, your spirituality weakens and your body is harmed bringing illness. Eat pure food and be with pure people. Don't be in dirty places with dirty friends. There are many beautiful things, but they are dirty at their core. Look at the core of things. If it is pure admire it, and like it.

To reach happiness, a person should try to become a perfect man, with high manners like our Prophet ﷺ; beloved one of Allāh ﷻ. Those that respect the Prophet ﷺ, and aspire to be like him ﷺ will be given from his ﷺ attributes. The Prophet ﷺ is perfect but we are human beings and make many mistakes. But we must move slowly towards perfection, and do good. When we do good, often others will do wrong to us. But we should forgive those ones. It is not easy, but difficult things have greater virtues. You can kill your ego and strengthen your spirituality through forgiveness.
Accept Your Creator
Jan16 2018 Turkish 15min
Allāh ﷻ sent us to this life, to this world. Don't question your existence in dunyā. Instead make shukr to Him ﷻ, be patient in dunyā and earn for the Ākhirah as Allāh ﷻ gave you this chance. This world is a place of tests. First you must accept your Creator ﷻ, then His ﷻ favour, and then accept your condition. If you accept, and are patient, then you may be in comfort, in shā’a Llāh.
Jan15 2018 Turkish 10min
There are three things that bring happiness in this dunyā. Safety, health and nourishment. You must be thankful to your Lord ﷻ for what He ﷻ gives you. Remember Him ﷻ, accept and follow His ﷻ order.
The Main Concept of Taṣawwuf
Jan14 2018 English 26min
The most important thing in taṣawwuf is to have a murshid; a direct link to to Rasūla Llāh ﷺ and to Allāh Almighty. We must think wisely and act wisely. We have a murshid to ask, so that we gain better understanding and can make the right choices.
Taṣawwuf Makes You Love Each Other
Jan13 2018 English
Taṣawwuf is teaching us to love humanity. When it existed hundreds of years ago, in every home, in every area, every city, all countries, there was safety. Now, looking at the Arab world, there is no taṣawwuf and Muslims are eating each other. Because they have no mercy. Shayṭān does not want taṣawwuf. We must learn how to love our brothers, our neighbours, and humanity. Allāh ﷻ gave a us a duty to be a human and to teach humanity.
The First Teaching of Taṣawwuf
Jan09 2018 English 19min
Nowadays people try to fix everything. But, we are here as students of taṣawwuf. The first teaching is to fix your own ego. Not the ego of those around you, or trying to fix the country, or the world. First educate yourself and make yourself a good one. Ask your murshid to guide you. Try to open the curtain of your ego and connect to your heart. After we open the curtain then we may be able to do rābiṭah.
Appreciate What He Gives You
Jan04 2018 English 16min
Mawlānā taught us everything. He spoilt us all, made us laugh and cry, dance and pray. Mawlānā gave everything and still gives. We have to appreciate it. Al-ḥamdu liLlāh we are such lucky ones to be in his presence.
Everything Is Hidden in Details
Jan01 2018 English 18min
Find a true murshid. He will show you all the details; where everything is hidden. When reading a newspaper Mawlānā Shaykh showed Sheikh Bahauddin how the important news was in the corner, written in small. Headlines are only advertisement. The important news does not appear as a headline. A murshid will show you the details and put you on the straight way to Allāh Almighty.

Light for Your Mind
Dec07 2017 Turkish 13min
There is a global system today that causes all people to hold the same opinions. But wisdom is only for those following the right way. Mawlānā Shaykh would tell people the opposite of what was accepted and enlighten their minds with the truth but to accept is one thing, to follow is another.
Perfection Is in Ākhirah
Dec06 2017 Turkish 14min
Don’t look for perfection in this world. This world is for testing. The higher you are the more the tests. Īmān makes it easier to tolerate. So work to make your īmān stronger. If you want perfection be pleased with the will of Allāh ﷻ.
The Green Island
Dec06 2017 Turkish 17min
Shaykh Efendi remembers 50 years ago when the population was smaller but the mosques were full. Cyprus, the Green Island, was won for Islām by the saints and martyrs who are buried here. The ones now living here do not know their Lord and are not grateful but everything in this world is temporary.
God Is Only One
Dec05 2017 Turkish 17min
Allāh ﷻ created man and gave him mind to understand who created him and why. All the Messengers have been sent to tell people their God is One. Shayṭān cheats people by telling them the messenger is God, or that God has died, or that there are many gods. Follow the pure way of the Prophet ﷺ, the way of Ṭarīqah.
Remember Him ﷻ
Dec03 2017 Turkish 14min
Enjoy the good things Allāh ﷻ has given you, they are decorations for this life. Remember Him ﷻ and thank Him ﷻ. Remembering Him ﷻ keeps you from doing bad things. If you are thankful you win in Ākhirah. If not, you lose.
