We must be pure for Allah and not mix desire with religion. Allah created everything with wisdom. Questioning ‘why?’ is ignorance. We must improve ourselves by fighting shaitan and ego. Tariqa is sending help. Slowly, slowly, with the right intention, small improvements in ourselves can remove both material and spiritual illnesses and we will get better and better.

The Rain of Iman
Dec25 2015 Turkish 25min
The rain of iman makes hearts green. The arrival in Cyprus of a relic of Prophet (saw) is a sign. Baraka descends with his light and beauty. Unbelievers discussing climate change and the planet getting hotter can do nothing. They dirtied the rivers one after another. Allah curses them. The most basic Islamic teaching is that ablution cannot be performed with dirty water.

If You Love Allah, Then Follow Me (3:31)
Dec24 2015 Turkish 13min
To love and obey the Prophet (saw) is to love Allah. It is the main target for a Muslim. Most of their lives people run after what they think they want. They are never satisfied and their life becomes a punishment but in gaining the love of Allah both this life and the hereafter are gained.
The Baraka of the Prophet (sas)
Dec23 2015 Turkish 15min
Believing in the Creator and His Prophet (sas) is from the good things, otherwise life has no value. Respecting the relics of the prophets generates barakah. Just as the ark of Moses led to victory for Bani Israil, visiting the Prophet’s holy hair brings blessings and favours on its viewers.
You Must Love and Praise Him (sas)
Dec22 2015 Turkish 14min
The word ‘sha-a’ir’ necessitates a heart filled with fear and high praise for Allah. A real believer is conscious of Allah. If during Hajj we must be respectful about the ‘sha-a’ir’ how then for the Prophet (sas)? Allah’s reward for praising of His Beloved is unimaginable. Praise him abundantly. It is the most important thing for Muslims.

A Mercy for Whole Creation (21:107)
Dec21 2015 Turkish 13min
Our Prophet (sas) was sent as a mercy for creation. He loved peace but then too, as today, fitna existed. It is mercy to be rid of oppressors and unlike the non-believer who fights for pleasure, our prophet fought oppressors nobly. Islam is not terrible. To bring people to the right way is a big favour.

Tariqa trains and teaches ego control. Only then can man become perfect. The way of Maulana is to love Akhira. This is real iman, it is to like what the Prophet (sas) liked. Spirituality can only grow when love for Allah becomes real. Beware of those whose desires for dunya are growing. If not you will be the losers.

It is customary in our tradition to visit Mawlana Sheikh’s maqam especially in the blessed month of mawlid un-Nabi. Allah knows, and will reward it abundantly from the Prophet’s (sas) station. Supporting and driving this, is Mawlana himself. This is the best thing for a Muslim as it results in greater spiritual power and a stronger belief.
The Duty of Abu Jahl
Dec15 2015 English 32min
O Youngsters, Rasulullah (sas) is Allah’s beloved, so don’t follow rubbish.
Study history and know who Abu Jahl is. Shaitan whispered in his ears, and today, his legacy lives amongst those who spread hate in the name of Islam. Allah’s anger is on them. Now is the time to keep the love of Rasulullah (sas).
The Hidden Details
Dec13 2015 English 30min
A contract often has hidden details so a good lawyer is crucial. The details lie in the passing of the tests of life. Our actions serve us and must not make our hearts ill. Nevertheless, the main thing is that in entering the Naqshbandi Tariqa, the murid comes under the lawyer’s protection.
The Inner Peace
Dec12 2015 English 24min
As a desert comes to life with rain, so also, love makes life meaningful. Islam stands for love and peace and justice. Allah wants people to know and understand each other and promote peace. As Muslims loving Rasulullah (sas), our hearts and homes are open. We can become distributors of inner peace.
Don’t Listen to Your Ego
Dec06 2015 English 31min
Instead of being envious evaluate yourself. You deserve where you are sitting. Maulana knows what he is doing and serious in Sheikh Mehmet’s appointment. It is for our benefit. Listening to your ego is endangering yourself. Instead seek perfection within. Be akhira oriented, unselfish. That is the way of tasawwuf.
Enjoy the Ride
Dec05 2015 English 34min
Life runs quickly. It is critical to reach the Day of Judgement in safety. The knowledge of Islam is much too deep, however, blindness like that of the Wahabis has given fruit to the ISIS monster. Mind our ancestors’ ways. Murids, understand the importance of following the Sheikh. Then enjoy the ride.
Tasawwuf Makes You Up
Dec01 2015 English 23min
Knowledge is for knowing Allah. We are in a necessary upheaval both globally and individually. Do not be demoralized. Instead make a heavenly connection. Surrender. If under pressure, go into the silent dhikr. Become aware of everything. It is the way of Tasawwuf. It will lift you up with heavenly energy.
