The amount of zakāh is very little but it gives much benefit. If all the rich paid it there would be no people in need. It cleans the money of the giver and cause his fortunes to increase by means of its barakah. It is important. Abū Bakr (ra) waged war on those who refused to pay.
The Rewards of Ramaḍān
May19 2019 Turkish 18min
In Ramaḍān Allāh ﷻ opens the door of heaven for people to get blessed. The reward for a good deed is increased up to 700 thawāb. Fasting is good for your health, your īmān, and your willpower.
Open Door to Happiness
May18 2019 Turkish 10min
The world is always a test and in these, the last days, it is even harder. Allāh ﷻ opens the door to happiness but most people don’t go through it. Remembrance of Allāh ﷻ and of His ﷻ Prophet ﷺ can make this world a paradise.
May17 2019 Turkish 11min
Allāh’s ﷻ order is to worship Him ﷻ with sincerity. Sincerity is one of the secrets of Allāh ﷻ that He ﷻ gives to those He ﷻ loves. There are many who worship and gain knowledge in order to please others or show off but the really sincere are few.

Selling Their Souls
May16 2019 Turkish 11min
There are people who think they are doing good but leading people to the wrong way. This is oppression. Most of them know they are not doing good. They write books, give lectures and give advice against the Prophet’s ﷺ teachings. They are not afraid of Allāh ﷻ. They are willing to sell their souls to Shayṭān for fame and popularity.
Dhikr by Your Heart
May15 2019 Turkish 11min
Of all Ṭuruq the Naqshbandiyyah is the best because it begins where the others leave off. It teaches the quiet Dhikr of the heart which enables us to be all the time with Allāh ﷻ. Shāh-i Naqshband (q) said who is out of this way, his īmān is in danger.
The Summary of Life
May14 2019 Turkish 8min
“Who is better in speech than the one who calls to Allāh ﷻ, works righteousness, and says, ‘I am of those who submit in Islām’.” (41:33). This is what Allāh ﷻ likes and the way of the Prophet ﷺ. Who does this will find both this life and the Hereafter easy.
A Wind from Under the Throne
May13 2019 Turkish 14min
At the beginning of Ramaḍān Allāh ﷻ sends a beautiful wind from under the Throne that brings the residents of Paradise joy. It signals the beginning of the month of fasting. Without controlling body and soul there can be no spiritual gain.
Ṭarīqah Is Life
May12 2019 Turkish 12min
Without Ṭarīqah we are dead. We put ourselves freely under the control of a Murshid whose only interest is to bring us to the Divine. Everything comes from Allāh ﷻ through Ṭarīqah.
The Door to Forever
May11 2019 Turkish 16min
Most people forget that death is coming. It is not a bad thing or the Prophet ﷺ would not have died. It is the door to the next life, either a hole of Hell or a garden of Paradise. Don’t gamble with the next life.
We Are Lucky
May08 2019 Turkish 13min
We are coming together for the sake of Allāh ﷻ and this makes us lucky: lucky to be created believers, on the way of belief. We must thank Allāh ﷻ. Most people are chasing after the world and leaving Ākhirah. Spirituality is more valuable and is forever.
Common People and Special People
May06 2019 Turkish 17min
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.
