An interviewer asks some questions to Shaykh Mehmet Efendi about the Last Days. Are they near? Will the Ottomans play a role. How do we protect ourselves? The answers are important for everyone.
A Special Jamā‘ah
Jul03 2018 English 15min
This gathering is mostly people who have come to Islām through the barakah of Mawlānā Shaykh Nāẓim (q) and he is still bringing people. He said to invite new people, one by one. Even they say the Shahādah once it will save them. It is the key to Paradise.
Every Shaykh Has His Own Style
Jul03 2018 English 27min
Shaykh Bahauddin talks about an incident that occurred last week. He warns that Ṭarīqa is not a joke. Shaykh Mehmet is appointed shaykh on the highest authority. There is no more kindergarten. So be careful and know who you are.
Places Built with Sincerity
Jul03 2018 Turkish 10min
It takes patience, mercy, and sincerity to bring people to Islam. It cannot be done by force. The shaykhs brought people to Islām by their example of beauty and spirituality. People who are not with shaykhs can only bring evil.
Response to Shaykh Hisham
Jul02 2018 English 18min
There are good intentions and good deeds. Allāh ﷻ rewards both. Sometimes a good intention does not result in a good action. Even for this Allāh ﷻ rewards us. Shaykh Hisham had good intention but the result was to make fitnah and division in the Ṭarīqah. In his humbleness he has corrected the situation. Ṭarīqah is love, respect, and adab.
Do and Allāh ﷻ Will See
Jul01 2018 English 19min
You must do your best and then accept what happens as Allāh's ﷻ will. Just as you must exercise the body for health and strength so you must do spiritual exercise. Don’t be lazy. All wisdom is in the Qur’ān. When Sayyidinā Mahdī (as) comes he will bring knowledge no one ever heard before.
Humbleness Opens Door of the Heart
Jun30 2018 English 18min
Switzerland is perfect in dunyā things but not in Ākhīrah things. You must look for reality even in a place that seems less than your country. You must not be proud because you take nothing from this life with you. Be clever and humble.
Mawlānā’s Name Is Ḥaqqānī
Jun29 2018 English 33min
Ḥaqqānī is the name given Mawlānā Shaykh Nāẓim (q) by Allāh ﷻ. We will keep our promise to him to follow him on the way he taught us. We will not change his way. Those who confuse others by saying something else will be punished if they do not repent. It is a test to make us stronger. When there is dunyā in the heart there is no place for Allāh ﷻ.
We Are Like Shadows
Jun29 2018 English 6min
Who is here today was not here a hundred years ago and will not be here in a hundred years. We are like shadows. Only the next life is reality. If you have this belief you will be happy and safe.
Naẓar Bar Qadam
Jun19 2018 Turkish 13min
Only look at your own step. Don’t compare your Shaykh to others or your way to others and do not say that theirs is not as good as yours. This is not acceptable. Ṭarīqah is not like this. What your Shaykh gives for you is perfect for you.
The Strong One Controls Himself
Jun18 2018 Turkish 18min
Allāh ﷻ defends those who are quiet and don’t defend themselves or argue back when people say bad things about them. Ṭarīqah teaches you to carry these things because the ego always deserves more. Even though it is very difficult, if you argue you make a bigger problem.
Allāh ﷻ Loves the Believers
Jun17 2018 Turkish 11min
Allāh ﷻ loves the believers, those who know that whatever comes is from Him ﷻ and He ﷻ knows what they need. Allāh ﷻ does not love the kāfir, the ones who love their egos more than their true selves. They don’t accept anything and they are not thankful. When they learn to love themselves, He ﷻ will love them.
Don’t Die Without a Will
Jun16 2018 Turkish 15min
It is the Sunnah to write a will, especially those Muslims living in non-Muslim countries and converts. With no written will they will be treated and their goods inherited according to the law of that land. One sixth of the soul remains in the body after death. It can hear and feel and should not be burned.
Keep Your Prayers
Jun15 2018 Turkish 16min
Now that Ramaḍān is over we must try to hold on to the prayers and practices we have been doing. People put off the prayers and then forget or do them late without the sunnah. Pray when you hear the adhān and be light. May Allāh ﷻ destroy those trying to destroy Islām from inside and from out.
Days of Forgiveness
Jun14 2018 Turkish 17min
Allāh's ﷻ generosity is endless. As much as we never tire of sinning, He ﷻ never tires of forgiving. There are some days and nights in which He forgives more – the days of Ramaḍān, the night of ‘Īd, the days of Ḥajj. So ask for yourself, for the Ummati Muḥammad, and to send Sayyidinā al-Mahdī (as).
How to Not Fall
Jun13 2018 Turkish 16min
If you follow your ego and become proud you will fall. How do we keep our place and go higher? By knowing that everything we have is from Allāh ﷻ. He ﷻ brought us to this nice way. Our worship, our good deeds are all from Him ﷻ. Anyone can be better than we are, as in the story of the disciple of ‘Īsá (as) and the robber.
Carry Each Other
Jun12 2018 Turkish 17min
We must try to carry each other and be happy with each other. Even when your intention is good nobody is happy with you. Allāh ﷻ is carrying the whole world full of people who are not obeying Him ﷻ and He ﷻ continues to be generous with them. It is not easy but we must try.
Jun11 2018 Turkish 16min
Allāh ﷻ created all egos the same. If He ﷻ gave you the opportunity you too might take your ego for your god. Don’t be like Pharaoh or Nimrod or worse. Don’t follow the lead of your ego. Follow the orders of Allāh ﷻ, the Prophet ﷺ and the Shaykhs (q).
