Jealousy: The Biggest Illness
Mar27 2016 English
The biggest illness of the ego is jealousy. All people have it to different degrees. It is the last thing that the saints get rid of. The people of today are consumed by jealousy even for the Prophet (sas) and his saints. That is why they are destroying maqams, objecting to mawlid, and killing the people.
Abdun Ṣabūr wa Shakūr

Be thankful. Allah loves His servants who are thankful to Him and He gives them more. Be patient and thankful because He is The Patient and The Thankful. Take the middle way and seek fame in Allah’s eyes not in the eyes of the world.
Muslims Have Never Been Terrorists
Mar22 2016 English 18min
You are tiny in comparison to the greatness of Allah’s creation. However, you and even the ants have a mission and a reason, all servants of Allah. No one has the right to take any life. This is not Islam. Terrorists do not respect the creation or the Creator.
Dressed by Your Sheikh
Mar20 2016 English 27min
Mawlana always gave a small pill with an atomic effect. He said “Enjoy your present, the future isn’t yours. Be patient and wait for things to resolve." You must approach your Sheikh without the dress of dunya and then he will dress you in your higher stations. He also talked about the anniversary of Nabil’s passing.
Surrender to Your Murshid
Mar19 2016 English
There are two sides to tasawwuf. You must surrender to the Murshid and the Murshid must accept your surrender and behave as a father to his children. There is no surrender in dunya, dunya is about maximizing. There is no fathering in dunya, dunya is about taking. With Mawlana you are on solid ground, he doesn’t want any losing among his children.
Mar15 2016 English 21min
Beware of those Muslims who behave like communists. They reduce Islam to the lowest common denominator, the lowest level of understanding and of learning, as if Quran has only one meaning. They are without mercy and without appreciation for the works of others.

How to Continue Without Him

Islam Has Always Been Light
Feb23 2016 English 24min
Now they are making Islam to be darkness when it was always light. Even Ibn Sina they accuse of being mushrik when he contributed so much benefit to the world. Islam teaches love for neighbors and openness. Be proud to be Muslim and spread the beauty.
The Big Picture
Feb21 2016 English
Understand the big picture. Lose your personality. Do everything in the name of the Sheikh. Sleeping, eating are from the Sheikh. Do not mis-estimate those Mawlana Sheikh loved and trusted. Better to fight your ego than fight your spirituality.
Humanity Is Not a Chicken Farm
Feb20 2016 English 20min
Saying Shahada makes you a Muslim by right. This no one can take away. People think that they must control everything, like chicken farmers. But Allah is the best Planner and His plan is beyond your imagination. You need a Murshid to distinguish the right way. Then you will find peace of mind.
Fill Your Life with Spirituality
Feb14 2016 English 18min
Many who suffer turn to smoking or drinking or drugs. The emptiness inside needs filling. No doubt the richest spirituality is with Rasulullah (sas) and those with a murshid experience this. Shaitan is against the murshid but careful consideration of this point shows its wisdom. People are like children whose lives the murshid guides and fills up with a strong spirituality.
Feb13 2016 English 21min
Muslims excited about Valentine’s Day, forgot Rasulullah (sas). The Salafi and Wahabi cry “mushrik!” to celebrating Mawlid. We realise Allah is Allah and Muhammad, His messenger. Allah holds Muhammad next to Him. Know this and leave your ignorance. Respect him, love him, celebrate him. Only then can Muslims hold their head up high.
Be with Allah
Feb07 2016 English 20min
Allah is not hidden. Accept it or not, He put us here so we cannot ignore Him. Live without taking a breath; it is enough to acknowledge His existence. Don’t be angry and upset with Allah. Instead, come to Him. Know Him. He is waiting like a kind and merciful parent for his child to come and ask to be forgiven.
Rasulullah Is Everything
Jan19 2016 English
The Muslim community is the largest on Earth because Islam is for everyone. But remember there are so many enemies of Islam inside Islam. Don't be affected by ISIS or wahabi or salafi. They are poisoning everybody; and then they will poison themselves. This new generation of ideas; it is like mushrooms. Islam came with the love of Allah, Rasulullah, Sahaba and awliya who are carrying it. You must understand the pain that Rasulullah went through. Things did not come easy; they were difficult. Abu Jahal was also from Makka. Understanding the past gives you the power to understand your future. Don't hesitate with the love of Rasulullah. Allah will never be happy with those who prevent love of the Prophet. Without Rasulullah's love you are nothing.
The Magical Valley
Jan17 2016 English 34min
Allah Almighty is so soft; he wants his servants to be with Him. His door of tawba is open from east to west, you only need to ask for it. When Allah created the servant, with him he created the paradise. But time has no mercy and whatever you do with your time in the dunya is important. The dunya is like a magical valley filled with jewels. If you are asleep in this dunya, you will miss the jewels. Don't kill your time, use your time! Make dhikr and prayer, learn adab, how to love your brother, and to be humble.
Why We Need Guidance
Jan16 2016 English 23min
Are the Quran and Hadith enough for guidance? No. At the common level, ego rules and Shaitan is the guide. Allah has given a simple option: Love Rasulullah (sas). The good ones do, and so, seek those who are good. They receive guidance from the saints, who unconcerned for their own benefit only seek nearness to Allah.
