The Cure for Spiritual Heaviness
Apr03 2016 Turkish 14min
What sins you commit become heaviness for you. It is much easier to carry material heaviness than it is to carry spiritual heaviness. It brings you troubles in dunya and punishment in akhira. So ask forgiveness from the Most Merciful Lord while you can.
If You Want to Be Loved by Allah
Apr02 2016 Turkish 13min

Apr01 2016 Turkish 28min
The spiritual season of the three holy months arrives April 8. It is special this year as it begins on the holy day of Jumaa. All murids should try to make one khalwat (seclusion). This is food for the soul. What makes the soul strong, weakens the ego.

Imprison Your Ego
Mar31 2016 Turkish 11min
The ego continues to test you until your last breath. Even the Prophet (sas) asked Allah to protect him from the ego. The more you feed it, the more it wants. It is never satisfied and you can only keep it locked up for your sake and that of others.
Jealousy: The Biggest Illness
Mar27 2016 English
The biggest illness of the ego is jealousy. All people have it to different degrees. It is the last thing that the saints get rid of. The people of today are consumed by jealousy even for the Prophet (sas) and his saints. That is why they are destroying maqams, objecting to mawlid, and killing the people.

Muslims Have Never Been Terrorists
Mar22 2016 English 18min
You are tiny in comparison to the greatness of Allah’s creation. However, you and even the ants have a mission and a reason, all servants of Allah. No one has the right to take any life. This is not Islam. Terrorists do not respect the creation or the Creator.
Dressed by Your Sheikh
Mar20 2016 English 27min
Mawlana always gave a small pill with an atomic effect. He said “Enjoy your present, the future isn’t yours. Be patient and wait for things to resolve." You must approach your Sheikh without the dress of dunya and then he will dress you in your higher stations. He also talked about the anniversary of Nabil’s passing.
Surrender to Your Murshid
Mar19 2016 English
There are two sides to tasawwuf. You must surrender to the Murshid and the Murshid must accept your surrender and behave as a father to his children. There is no surrender in dunya, dunya is about maximizing. There is no fathering in dunya, dunya is about taking. With Mawlana you are on solid ground, he doesn’t want any losing among his children.

Beware of those Muslims who behave like communists. They reduce Islam to the lowest common denominator, the lowest level of understanding and of learning, as if Quran has only one meaning. They are without mercy and without appreciation for the works of others.

Ask Allah for strong belief because with strong belief everything is easy. Shaitan is always fighting to destroy belief, now and in the past. Sheikh Mehmet talks about Shah Naqshband and the Grandsheikhs in India and how they strengthened the belief of so many. They are an example for us.
How to Continue Without Him

Beware of Shaitan

Those Who Do Not Desire Position (28:83)
Feb26 2016 Turkish 20min
To seek knowledge is a fard in Islam. Real knowledge comes from a connection to the Prophet (sas). Other kinds of learning only feed the ego. The desire for fame or position is worse than the desire for wealth because it cannot be shared with others. Tariqa connects you to the Prophet (sas).
