Especially in Ramaḍān it is important to be good with people and with family. Mawlānā Shaykh Nāẓim (q) used to say there are common people (‘awām) and special people (khawāṣ). The common person just thinks about his material life, is envious, and fights with people. The special person wants for others what he wants for himself. Ṭarīqah people are special.
The Best Way
May05 2019 Turkish 19min
Welcome to the blessed days of Ramaḍān and this year also the ‘Urs of Mawlānā Shaykh Nāẓim (q), who introduced us to the best way, the way of the Prophet ﷺ and saved us from a bad ending.
Children of Shayṭān
Apr23 2019 English 22min
It is almost Ramaḍān. The ego is never happy with Ramaḍān because it becomes powerless and unable to work fitnah. Allāh ﷻ honoured humanity so do not try to be an animal like those who kill innocent believers. Those who promote this behaviour, like the Wahhabis, are the children of Shayṭān. They only believe in richness.
No Ordinary Fire
Apr16 2019 English 14min
The cathedral in Paris burned yesterday. Even with all the technology there was nothing they could do. Humanity lost some of its heritage as it did with the loss of holy maqams in Syria and Buddhist statues in Afghanistan. Although we are not happy about it we must try to derive some lesson from the loss. You may think you are free to do anything but Allāh ﷻ has the last say.
Surrender and Relax
Apr12 2019 English 17min
Laylatu l-Barā’ah is approaching, the most important night of the Muslim calendar when the events of the future year are written. Submit to His ﷻ will and relax. Whatever He ﷻ sends we welcome. It is all in His ﷻ hands.
Laylatu l-Isrā’ wa-l-Mi‘rāj
Apr02 2019 Turkish 29min
On this night Allāh Almighty sent Jibrā’īl (as) to invite the Prophet ﷺ to come to Him ﷻ. Many ignorant people claim it was a dream or a spiritual event but it was a journey in the body, out of time, approaching nearer to Allāh ﷻ than any other creation, even angels are able. The night is for praying and the day for fasting. Its reward is like 60 months of worship.
Everything Comes from Allāh ﷻ
Apr01 2019 Turkish 11min
Worldly life is short. It is not your business to be angry or sad with what happens in it. What people need Allāh ﷻ sends. He ﷻ is the One who changes things. Everything has its wisdom. So take care of your provision and your prayers and you will win in the Hereafter.
Be Soft and Well Behaved
Mar31 2019 Turkish 13min
Allāh ﷻ praised the prophet Ibrāhīm (as) calling him ‘awwāhun ḥalīm’ (9:114) – soft and merciful and He ﷻ ordered him to be well behaved and soft even to the unbelievers in the hopes they would come to believe. The Prophet ﷺ said those with this attribute will be near him ﷺ in Paradise.
One Wing of a Mosquito
Mar30 2019 Turkish 15min
The value of this world is not even one wing of a mosquito, yet everyone wants to be the highest in it. Nobody wants to be a common person. Teach your children the way of Allāh ﷻ not the way of dunyā.
The Best of Creation
Mar29 2019 Turkish 21min
Allāh ﷻ says in Sūratu t-Tīn that He ﷻ created man in the best of forms. The Qur’ān is the only true holy book left. Who disagrees with what is in it is crazy or a liar. Allāh ﷻ made man the highest and slowly man makes himself the lowest by his disbelief.

The Secret of Water
Mar28 2019 Turkish 11min
Allāh ﷻ says in the Holy Qur’ān that all living things are made of water. There is no life, no cleanliness, no īmān (faith) without water. Water is pure and clean. Those who pollute it are cursed. It will not be made pure again until the coming of Sayyidunā Mahdī (as).
Allāh ﷻ Chooses Place, Time, and People
Mar27 2019 Turkish 13min
It is Allāh ﷻ who makes a time or a place or a person holy. It is not up to what we think or what is convenient. These holy months change according to the moon calendar. He ﷻ makes them holy as He ﷻ has also chosen Mecca and Medina; as He ﷻ has chosen the Prophet ﷺ and his Ṣaḥābah. We cannot change this.
Be Clean, Allāh ﷻ Will Defend You
Mar26 2019 Turkish 13min
People are afraid of those who envy or hate them but there is nothing to fear. If you have done nothing bad, you have nothing to fear because Allāh ﷻ has said He ﷻ will defend you and what they wish for you will come on them. So keep yourself clean and do not be afraid.
Don’t Lose Your Life
Mar25 2019 Turkish 13min
Allāh ﷻ created everything with a mission. Even the smallest atom is happy praising its Lord. Only man has shayṭān and ego and is not happy. He looks for the easiest way out and wastes his life to no purpose. He loses his life and his self.
Happiness Is in Yourself
Mar24 2019 Turkish 15min
Allāh ﷻ made everyone for some purpose. Be satisfied with what you are given. This is the only source of happiness. Don’t blame others. This is from ego. There is no reward for complaining.
Imitate Good People
Mar23 2019 Turkish 11min
Try to imitate the ways of good people. The best of people is the Prophet ﷺ and his companions. Today people imitate the worst people. With the good you always find goodness; with the bad you will always lose. You will understand on the Day of Resurrection.
The Final Regret
Mar23 2019 Turkish 16min
Allāh ﷻ shows us so many favours. In these three holy months, He ﷻ rewards each good deed a hundredfold. Don’t be rebellious and pass up these opportunities. All that will save you in the next life is having a pure heart. Regret and repent now. Do not enter the hereafter with regret.
