Allah advises us not to rush in life except for doing good things. Rush to prayer, to fulfill Allah’s orders, to make Hajj, to repent. You don’t know how long you will live. When you are thirsty you rush to drink. Your spirituality is always thirsty, rush to water it.

Aug02 2015 Turkish 15min
Allah says: Who is not looking for Me, not seeing, not listening, I will make his life miserable and on Judgment Day he will be blind. People of today are like concrete with no sensitivity and no manners. They don’t even feel when they are doing something wrong.

For 70 years Mawlana called the Cypriots back to Islam. They are like Bani Israil, they say to him - you go and do and then we will join you. This is showing that you cannot bring even those you love to the right way, only Allah has the power to bring them.
Don’t Be a Loser
Jul28 2015 Turkish 10min
Suratu l-Asr is the shortest surat but a summary of all good advice. All people are losers except those who believe, do good, and counsel each other to follow the right way and to have patience. Most people are losers because they follow their egos. All winning lies in the eternal life.
Don’t Ask Too Much
Jul27 2015 Turkish 16min
The worst sin is to tell people something is a sin when it is not, in order to benefit oneself. Allah has informed us what is good and what is bad. It is not up to us. The Prophet (sas) advised us not to ask too much and so make things more difficult.

She will be baraka for this island until the Day of Judgment.

Good people need to be with good people (24:26) and Allah will open wide for them His doors of Mercy. People like others to be like them, to drink, to not believe. You must be careful who you marry and who are your friends.

Worship like Breathing

Allah’s orders must become as natural to you as eating, sleeping, breathing. You must accept them without complaining or bargaining. This will raise your station and purify you so that nothing can touch you.

To fast 6 days in Shawwal is a forgotten sunna of the Prophet (sas). It’s reward is equal to the fast of a year. The day the fast ends is called Eid ul-Abrār - the feast of those who are very obedient to Allah. For those who cannot fast all they can fast only the 7th of Shawwal instead.
The Light of My Eyes
Jul21 2015 Turkish 15min
The Prophet (sas) loved prayer - it is the light of my eyes he said. Tahajjud is the most valuable of the voluntary prayers. You can even pray it sitting as the Prophet did, in the last third of the night and it will bring you baraka and health.
