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

Medicine for Black Magic
Nov29 2015 English 30min
Allah loves the thankful servant. Be grateful. Don’t complain about Black Magic. Driven by emotionality, it is powerless against belief in Allah. His manifestation cannot be made invisible. That would be shirk. Those who believe such things must punish their ego by reading the Quran. That will prove to be effective medicine.

Allah empowers Muslim hearts through the love of Rasulullah (sas). Entangled in logic the Western mind cannot understand this. Simply, crush your ego, come and love Rasulullah (sas). Truth shines like the sun. Disaster results from man’s wrong actions and this will affect all of mankind. In a mad world prayer gives protection.
Allah Orders Goodness
Nov27 2015 Turkish 21min
Allah orders justice and generosity; Allah only orders goodness. However now, every place in this world is captured by shaitan. It is demonizing Islam and ordering every badness and man’s animal nature is following it, and, will follow it until the coming of Mahdi (as). Do not follow liars. Allah loves honesty.

When Allah likes someone, He shows the way. Europeans consider themselves clever but those who don’t know their Creator are stupid. When they reach their real life they will be filled with regret. Seeking status or wealth is the sign of a weak ego but to know Allah and be well behaved towards Him is to be clever.
Don’t Be Hopeless
Nov24 2015 Turkish 9min
Who is hopeless and anxious in the world at this time? It is the unbeliever. Believers have Allah’s support, a big favour. Allah can do anything and everything. Al Muqtadir is not a small word. Allah may say, “Be” and it will be. People studying at universities, doctors, professors, must think on this.
Follow the Right Way
Nov23 2015 Turkish 16min
Safety lies in the straight way. The Naqshbandi Tariqa shows Muslims how to keep the Right Way: follow what the Prophet (sas) did and what he said. Allah chose him as an example for Muslims. Those who leave this endanger themselves. Disrespecting him, his family and companions will lead to regret.
Clear Your Heart
Nov22 2015 Turkish 16min
Sheikh Mehmet Efendi tells the story of one of the companions promised paradise by the Prophet (sas) while still alive. The reason for his being rewarded was that his heart was clear of any bad thought, bad intention or cheating. To be clean and clear on the inside is more important than on the outside.

Wake up, it is exam time. It is the month of Safar and also a time of testing for Mawlana’s murids. This is a kindergarten Mawlana said. We are not sheikhs. We must follow the sheikh and that is Sheikh Mehmet. He doesn’t need us for support or money but we need him in order to reach safety.
If One Grape Falls
Nov15 2015 English 15min
The treasure of this life is the love of Rasulullah. To love him is to follow what he says. We do not accept violence. In the time of the sultans one soldier was found walking in the vineyard. His commander told him that he would be held accountable for even one fallen grape.
Safety in Safar
Nov14 2015 English 30min
This Safar will be heavy. Say as many Astaghfirullah as possible and keep yourself within your house, within your self. Be humble and submit to your Lord who says: My Mercy precedes My anger. Dunya is a means to reach Allah, it is not to be owned.
Don’t Fight Allah Almighty
Nov10 2015 English 21min
The groups that call themselves Islam - salafi, isis, and the ones that disrespect the sahaba - are like mushrooms growing on a tree. They come and they go without affecting the tree itself. Allah will protect His tree - His Din, His Prophet - as He protected His House from the elephant. Don’t fight Allah.
The Gate to Paradise

What Is Your Size?
Nov07 2015 English 18min

The Election in Turkey
Nov03 2015 English 22min

Turkish peoples’ hearts have supported a government they can be comfortable with.
