“Allāh guides whom He wills” (28:56). Most people want to guide their loved ones to the right path. If Allāh ﷻ wills, it happens. If not, no matter how hard you try it doesn't work. Some people try to attract people by showing things, that aren't in Islām. No need, just be gentle, make it easy and not difficult. Do not mix Islām with other things. Show them the way of mercy. The gentle, sweet way Mawlānā taught us. Only show them the right way. The way of the Prophet ﷺ.
Who Is the Strong One?
Jan30 2017 Turkish 13min
The strong one is the one who controls his anger, says our Prophet ﷺ. The real strong ones look at everybody with mercy. Anger comes from ego and harms people. If it controls you, you will be defeated, but if you control your anger, you will be raised. When you hear something that makes you angry, you should repent immediately so that you don't do something you regret. If there is something wrong, you can change it into something good. But if you rush, and get angry you will regret it.
Work As if You Live Forever
Jan29 2017 Turkish 18min
The Prophet ﷺ said you must work as if you will never die, and you must worship as if you will die tomorrow. If you leave one or the other, you will end up following your ego. You can be sincere and wait for Mahdī (as) as Mawlānā did, but don't sit and wait for Mahdī (as) and Armageddon and do nothing. You should work and pray. If you ask for your worldly provision for Allāh’s ﷻ sake it is also worshipping. You can also make plans for the future, but always remember the most important thing; to say, in shā’a Llāh.
Be Beloved for Allāh ﷻ
Jan28 2017 Turkish 13min
Happiness is to be Beloved for Allāh ﷻ. Everybody can be beloved for Allāh ﷻ; there is a chance for everybody. It is the most honourable thing. Don't mix anything with this love. You cannot want to be Beloved for Allāh ﷻ because you want to make miracles, and be famous, or to take money. Do not look for small things. These are wrong ideas. Your intention must be pure. "If He ﷻ is happy with us, it is enough for me." you must say. And when you are beloved you will get everything you need without even asking.

Marriage Is a Foundation of Islām
Jan27 2017 Turkish 28min
When humans are living in luxury, they begin to think it is their right to have it. But it is from Allah, and you must be happy and thankful with what He gives you. Now, instead of poverty, people complain about their marriage; saying the love is not like at the beginning. This is a sign of very low īmān. Marriage is an institution that Allāh ﷻ and the Prophet ﷺ like. The family institution is holy. Marriage is one of the foundations of Islām. Always think for your marriage to continue and to be accepted in the Divine Presence.
The Answer for the Ignorant
Jan26 2017 Turkish 12min
"When the ignorant address them, they say salām." (25:63) Good people don't answer, they say ‘salām’. There is no need to argue with an ignorant person because he has fixed ideas and don’t want to understand. Now there are many of them. In non Muslim countries they may be dangerous. The best answer to an ignorant is to keep silent. Just keep quiet and be happy and Allāh ﷻ will reward you.
If You Love Allāh, Then Follow Me (3:31)
Jan24 2017 Turkish 13min
You are not true believers unless you love what I love, says our Prophet ﷺ. A Muslim must try to reach higher ranks by following the way of our Prophet. Follow the Prophet, and Allāh ﷻ will love you. Even if we can't do everything, we have to try our best. The way of Allāh is only with our Prophet through our prophet, it cannot be otherwise. He was sent as mercy to us, and we must love him.
You Are Not Created for Fun
Jan23 2017 Turkish 15min
Allāh ﷻ did not create us uselessly. He created human beings, the most honourable creatures between the creatures. Be thankful and obey His order; He did this for us. This honour to be forever, is for human beings only. You must prepare yourself. Allāh ﷻ told people through Prophets, holy people and books and if you follow, you will be rewarded with Paradise. Do your best to take this honour and be honourable on the last day also.
Shyness Is from Belief
Jan22 2017 Turkish 14min
Believers are shy to do bad things. In western countries we now see that bad things are even encouraged, and we are told ‘it is your nature’. It may be your nature, but Allāh orders you to fight your ego. Believers are ashamed of their bad deeds and are ordered to cover them, and Allāh ﷻ will keep them secret.
The Stage of Acceptance
Jan21 2017 Turkish 11min
The most important thing for humans is to accept what Allāh ﷻ gives us. Some beloved ones of the awliyā’ reach the stage of accepting. Those who do not accept think that they are clever, but it is the opposite. Because everything is from Allāh. He gives us what He wants. And accepting makes us happy and in peace. This is our way.

Nothing can be forever. Only Allah ﷻ stays the same. Ignorant people are saying ‘forever’ but wise ones are saying ‘until the end’. When a holy man dies, there is a big hole in this place, until Qiyāmah. To remember holy people is worship. Mawlānā was beautiful in life and more beautiful now. His power is still on. These are difficult times, but you know it won't continue like this. Light will come.
The Meaning of Life
Dec17 2016 Turkish 10min
The wife of an old murīd died this morning. She loved and followed Mawlānā, served him and hosted him. Her children and grandchildren did as well. Mawlānā loved her and so the Prophet (sas) loved her. If you want to know the meaning of life, her life was perfect.
Dec16 2016 Turkish 23min
The best attributes are Allāh's and the Prophet is His representative. We cannot see Allāh but we can see and follow the Prophet (sas). We must follow him inwardly as well as outwardly.

The Way of Mercy
Dec15 2016 Turkish 14min
The Prophet (sas) was sent as a mercy for the whole creation. He shows the way to Allāh’s door of mercy. This is the way of Islām and Ṭarīqah.
