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
Nov08 2015 English 26min
Everywhere is dirty. We are looking for the clean, straight way. The Sheikhs show us this way. They are the gates to paradise, accepting us as we are and helping us to reach spiritual perfection.
What Is Your Size?
Nov07 2015 English 18min
The first thing the ego teaches is pride. If we look at the earth we are big, at the universe we are smaller than dust. But we are not dust because inside each of us is a universe. We must know our true size and for this we need a Murshid.
The Election in Turkey
Nov03 2015 English 22min
It is a good day for true Muslims in Turkey and worldwide. Allah’s Mercy favored them through the recent elections. Turks, the inheritors of the Ottomans, show true love for the legacy of Rasulullah (sas). Many Muslim countries are in turmoil due to their lack of love for him. Turkish peoples’ hearts have supported a government they can be comfortable with.
There Is Only One Sheikh
Nov01 2015 English 25min
There is only one Sheikh. Those who ignore this rule will be hit badly. Haqq carries responsibility and good manners are essential for souls treading this path. You are monitored. Do not to cheat yourself or play with the lives of others. Instead of being captain of the plane, be the passenger and enjoy the ride.

Purity is organic, not contaminated. Naqshbandi followers of Mawlana Sheikh must carefully keep purity. Our main goal is to follow Rasulullah (sas). We love, respect and follow him as his favour to us. Allah was enough for him. Pure knowledge does not seek power or wealth and in doing so, we stay spiritually safe.
Perfection and Chaos
Oct28 2015 English 20min
The ego looks to express itself and its opinion by finding imperfection in Allah’s creation when no imperfection exists. That is why the world is in chaos. The sufi sees the world as Allah Almighty sees it, not as the ego sees it, and he is surrendered to Allah’s perfection and does not interfere.
Oct17 2015 English 13min
We are following in the steps of Mawlana with the one he left to guide us. From the outside it looks like prayer and worship have no benefit because the benefit is hidden. It is between us and our Lord. This is the true benefit and we will never leave it. You can never be poor when you say Allahu Akbar.
The Honey Way
Oct11 2015 English 27min
Alhamdulillah Allah never lets us get bored. He gave us prayer to keep us busy. Be thankful for the time He gives. Don’t waste it. Be thankful for the breath He gives. To appreciate your Lord is the spiritual way. Spirituality is the soul of religion. Mawlana showed us this way, the honey way.
Oct10 2015 English 22min
Allah gives more than we deserve, be humble to Him. Respect the ones He gives to guide you. Ask their support, dead or alive. Our spiritual journey does not finish here.
Oct06 2015 English 20min
The spiritual frequency enables us to take what is good from the world without losing our religion. We try and we taste to find what is good and what is bad - always with La ilaha illa Allah. Allah made everything and everyone. Not everything new is bad. If your connection is good, your teacher is a good one, you will find inner peace.
The Gravity of the Ka’ba
Oct04 2015 English
Sheikh Bahauddin congratulates the new Hajjis and talks about the gravity of the Ka’ba that pulls everyone towards it and also represents the weighty presence of Allahu l-Haqq. Hajj is tariqa - it is a rehearsal for death and Qiyama where all people are equal in front of their Lord, who will be, inshaAllah, Al-Ghafur, Ar-Rahim.
Oct03 2015 English 33min
Don’t think that things happen by chance. No, it is destiny - Qadar. Don’t think Allah Almighty thinks like you. Don’t think about Him at all but rather about what He creates. This is how you will understand Him. He is a hidden treasure waiting to be discovered, Ar-Rahman, Ar-Rahim.
Sep06 2015 English 29min
We are all in a queue, one behind the other. Some are beginning and some are experienced. Salafi are beginners. They think they know everything because they don’t know all that there is to know. Religion is not simple. We are against ignorance and we want all people to go to Paradise.
Parity in Humanity
Sep05 2015 English 26min
Allah sent the photo of the drowned child to teach humanity to identify with all life. What does a child know about religion? Spiritual people are not looking at your religion but at your humanity, to tame the wild side of each person. There is equality in our humanity. We are saying - It is enough suffering in Syria. O Allah, end the suffering.
