"Dunya Is a Marketplace" so man has to learn the true value of what he has, what he gives and takes. In his ignorance and heedlessness man forgets the crown given him by his Lord Almighty for the honor of His Beloved (sAs). Then he becomes the victim of his enemy, shaytan.
The Sultan Is The One Who Gives
Feb20 2013 Turkish 40min
The life of Modern Man has been reduced to the basic physical acts - eating, drinking, and... The so-called sophistication of modern life basically means that there is more of the physical, more resemblance to animal life. That is why Modern Man cannot appreciate anymore the magnificence of his ancestors who wrote majestic pages of history by holding to Allah's Shariah and keeping the Basmalah Sharifah.
Feb19 2013 Turkish 34min
Mawlana reminds us to keep the highest Adab with the Prophet (sAs). It is the Prophet (sAs) who taught us the Basmalah Sharifah, the key to all goodness and the protection from all evil. Man, however, runs after the "3-Day Life" and forgets the eternal one. Man forgets about death and the grave. Mawlana says that religion is not politics and contains no politics.
The Power of the Spirit
Feb18 2013 Turkish 48min
Mawlana says that these morning Sohbats are to give us the spiritual power needed for our day. It is spirituality that gives Man cleanliness. Ruh is Allah's grant to Man. Animals have life but only Man is given Ruh (Spirit). Ruh is what allows Man to fulfil the honourable purpose of his creation. Man has to be Man not only in his appearance but also in his reality.
After Your Shadow
Feb17 2013 Turkish 36min
Mawlana tells us how the Prophet (sAs) illustrated the value of this world to his Companions, the Sahaba (rA). He urges us to learn the secret and the value granted to Man and not to run "After Your Shadow".
Feb16 2013 Turkish 35min
Allah (swt) wants His servants to live " A Good Life". The Lord Almighty does not want a difficult miserable life for His servants. And Al-Haqq (swt) gave Man the key to a sweet life, but man refuses the key and is drowned in afflictions and dilemmas.
Feb15 2013 Turkish 48min
In Paradise, whatever Man ate became light for him. In Dunya, whatever Man eats becomes waste. Mawlana says that is why S. Adam (as) was forbidden to eat from the tree in Paradise; there is no toilet in Paradise. Toilets are only in Dunya. Yet Man continues to prefer Dunya to Akhirah. In Dunya the most visited and important place for men is the toilet. There is a new punishment coming to all the arrogant ones who refuse to say the Basmalah Sharifah.
The Maqam of HabibuLlah
Feb14 2013 Turkish 41min
Man is the most honored of all of creation and his dress of honor is BismiLlahi-r Rahmani-r Rahim. The true title of "Hz. Insan" is only for the owner of the "Maqam of HabibuLlah", the Prophet (sAs). It was to him that the Quranic command came, "prostrate and draw near (to Allah) (96:19) - اسْجُدْ وَاقْتَرِب". Allah guides men to what is easy and safe for them but men run away to difficulty and misery.
Imams Are of Two Kinds
Feb13 2013 Turkish 45min
Mawlana says that "Imams Are of Two Kinds". He warns the Muslim Kings and Rulers: Keep Allah's Zikr, keep their hands open, and keep their places clean from sin. Sayyidina Sulayman in his letter to Queen Balqis delivers an important lesson for all Kings but instead they learn from shaytan. They leave the system of Allah and follow democracy. The misery of the people in the streets is a result of this.
Ya Sahiba-l Imdad
Feb12 2013 Turkish 38min
Madad (support), from whom is it asked? How is it asked and for what is it asked? "Ya Sahiba-l Imdad"(the call on the one who has the power to support) is the secret given to Hazrat Insan, the Khalifa of Allah. It has its Adab and its power according to the station of the one who calls.
This World Is a Carcass
Feb11 2013 Turkish 38min
Mawlana said that for Ahlu-l Haqiqah (the people of Truth, the saints) the real name of "This World Is a Carcass - الدنيا جيفة" and those who run after it are dogs. People now are only concerned with the physical world. If they seek spiritual power, they seek it only to support their physical being. They do not seek it for the sake of Allah, they seek it for Dunya.
The Qutub of Ceylon
Feb10 2013 Turkish 45min
Mawlana speaks about "The Qutub of Ceylon", Shaykh Osman. Mawlana recalls his visit to this Maqam and the ebony tree he planted there. Saints have a special power, the secret of the Besmelah Sharifah, that is more powerful than all the weapons of the unbelievers. Muslims, however, do not have enough belief and so they turn their backs on the "Bismillah".
Feb09 2013 Turkish 43min
Man is the most honored being in all of creation but he has forgotten his honor. He has forgotten the Basmalah Sharifah. The one who turns his back on Allah Almighty's Name no longer deserves to be addressed with the greeting of Paradise people, "Marhaba". He can only be addressed with "Ushshaa" - giddyup!.
Feb08 2013 Turkish 42min
The people of today are no longer taught to say the Basmalah Sharifah. Because of this no light, no mercy, no rest. no love. is left with the people. They remain at the level of animals. They have forgotten the grave and they are busy with the petty, dirty dunya. Mawlana delivers an important Fatwa in this sohbah.
Seek the Nur
Feb07 2013 Turkish 44min
Mawlana warns Muslims, especially the ones in authority - the Amirs and the Kings - to keep their highest Adab with Allah (swt) and His Prophet (sAs). People should not be fooled by their transient worldly wealth or power. They should fear the Almighty, Al-Baqi (swt). People are of two kinds, people of Nur and those of Nar (fire). Mawlana warns Muslims to correct their steps and "Seek The Nur", the day of punishment is very close.
The Mountain of Gold
Feb06 2013 Turkish 41min
Mawlana says that in the whole of creation the only one who is confused about the reason for his existence is Man. The sun, the moon, the stars and all, realise the purpose of their creation and are in peace. Man is busy only with his physical existence and therefore never gets to see "The Mountain of Gold". Bismillah, which means remembering and living in the name of Allah, is the secret given to all Prophets.
Feb05 2013 Turkish 46min
Despite the endless Divine favours bestowed on "Hazrat Insan", the "Khalifa of Allah" and the secret of "Be and it is", yet Man chooses to be the animal of his enemy, the devil. Man turns his back on all of this by turning his back on the Bismillah. Muslims run after the Christian world, forgetting the imperfection that has been evident since the disciples, and follow "Wrong Ways".
A Table from Heaven
Feb04 2013 Turkish 32min
Mawlana recites two important ayats and shows the lessons that can be learned from each. "O Jesus, Son of Mary, can your Lord send down to us a table [spread with food] from the heaven? (5:112)", and "Have you seen he who has taken as his god his [own] desire (45:23)".
