The most important thing in taṣawwuf is to have a murshid; a direct link to to Rasūla Llāh ﷺ and to Allāh Almighty. We must think wisely and act wisely. We have a murshid to ask, so that we gain better understanding and can make the right choices.
Taṣawwuf Makes You Love Each Other
Jan13 2018 English
Taṣawwuf is teaching us to love humanity. When it existed hundreds of years ago, in every home, in every area, every city, all countries, there was safety. Now, looking at the Arab world, there is no taṣawwuf and Muslims are eating each other. Because they have no mercy. Shayṭān does not want taṣawwuf. We must learn how to love our brothers, our neighbours, and humanity. Allāh ﷻ gave a us a duty to be a human and to teach humanity.
The First Teaching of Taṣawwuf
Jan09 2018 English 19min
Nowadays people try to fix everything. But, we are here as students of taṣawwuf. The first teaching is to fix your own ego. Not the ego of those around you, or trying to fix the country, or the world. First educate yourself and make yourself a good one. Ask your murshid to guide you. Try to open the curtain of your ego and connect to your heart. After we open the curtain then we may be able to do rābiṭah.
Appreciate What He Gives You
Jan04 2018 English 16min
Mawlānā taught us everything. He spoilt us all, made us laugh and cry, dance and pray. Mawlānā gave everything and still gives. We have to appreciate it. Al-ḥamdu liLlāh we are such lucky ones to be in his presence.
Everything Is Hidden in Details
Jan01 2018 English 18min
Find a true murshid. He will show you all the details; where everything is hidden. When reading a newspaper Mawlānā Shaykh showed Sheikh Bahauddin how the important news was in the corner, written in small. Headlines are only advertisement. The important news does not appear as a headline. A murshid will show you the details and put you on the straight way to Allāh Almighty.
Honoured by His ﷺ Birth
Nov26 2017 English 23min
This is the month in which the planet was honoured by the birth of the Prophet ﷺ. Jibrīl (as) was his holy friend. He started life as an orphan in the desert and in 63 years he ﷺ brought the Truth for everyone equally. Even those who do not accept him copy the law that he brought.
Don’t Be Arrogant
Nov14 2017 English 17min
Don’t be arrogant and say you are strong. Allāh ﷻ will give you something to show you your weakness. Don’t judge others. Don’t disrespect the ṣaḥābah and awliyā’. Don’t try to fix perfection. This is not Islām.
Be with the True One
Nov12 2017 English 16min
This is a hard time because the true ones are few and hard to find. Happiness comes from love of Rasūlu Llāh ﷺ. Love for him ﷺ is the true love. It is the plan of shayṭān to destroy this love for the Prophet ﷺ and his companions and awliyā’ by first destroying their graves.
Spiritual and Material Balance
Nov11 2017 English 16min
It is important to have a murshid to help you follow in the way of Rasūlu Llāh ﷺ. He will help you find a balance between your spiritual and material life because then you can fly safely.
Swimming in the Spiritual Ocean
Oct08 2017 English 21min
Man thinks he is becoming better but he is becoming more ignorant, more proud and less human. He must know why he was made and why he was given favours and he must spend them according to Allāh’s ﷻ order. He must follow taṣawwuf and swim in the spiritual ocean without caring about dunyā.
Allāh ﷻ Is Shaking the Planet
Sep26 2017 English 23min
We need to know why we are in dunyā. We need to act like humans to each other, calm and kind. It is our intention that is rewarded so make good intention and expect big happenings in Muḥarram.
Sharī‘ah and Ṭarīqah Are Twins
Sep24 2017 English 25min
Don’t make your life a drama. Be thankful. Sharī‘ah is too hard by itself. Tarīqah is too soft. You need a balance of both in this world and you need a murshid to guide you.
Be the Color of Your Shaykh
Sep19 2017 English 16min
Now the time for playing is over. Know who you are and why you are here. Don’t judge others, don’t break hearts, don’t be rude, don’t fight. Be humble, be kind, be hospitable and follow your Shaykh. Leave your bad behaviour behind and come.
The Biggest Sin Is to Kill
Sep09 2017 English 23min
These are heavy days. Allāh ﷻ created us human, the most beautiful and complete creature on this planet. We are forbidden to hurt even an ant. People have forgotten Allāh ﷻ but He ﷻ has not forgotten us. Good or bad will finish and we will all return to Him ﷻ.
Is There Anyone with Wisdom?
Aug13 2017 English 16min
This is only a temporary home. Everything belongs to Allāh ﷻ. If you spent your whole life in sajdah it wouldn’t be enough to thank Him ﷻ. And when the food, drink, air He ﷻ gives you is done, you die. So use it well and move on.
The Finger of Shayṭān
Aug12 2017 English 21min
Shayṭān is the enemy of all humanity. It is his finger that is stirring the troubles in the whole world. Could it be possible that they are killing their brothers for Allāh ﷻ? Our biggest test is to not believe in shayṭān.
“Nothing” Means “Everything”
Aug08 2017 English 24min
Shaykh Bahauddin gives two pieces of advice. Be positive because negativity makes you and the people around you miserable. Be humble and think of others first. This is the way of the Awliyā’u Llāh and the way of ṭarīqah. Sajda is the true prayer.
Accept Your Weakness
Aug06 2017 English 14min
Allah ﷻ loves those who continue what they start. Don’t claim you are strong and you can do this. We are like batteries that weaken and need to be recharged. We need the awliyā and our shaykh recharge us. Accept your weakness and the magnificence of Allah Almighty ﷻ.
