The spiritual season of the three holy months arrives April 8. It is special this year as it begins on the holy day of Jumaa. All murids should try to make one khalwat (seclusion). This is food for the soul. What makes the soul strong, weakens the ego.

Imprison Your Ego
Mar31 2016 Turkish 11min
The ego continues to test you until your last breath. Even the Prophet (sas) asked Allah to protect him from the ego. The more you feed it, the more it wants. It is never satisfied and you can only keep it locked up for your sake and that of others.

Ask Allah for strong belief because with strong belief everything is easy. Shaitan is always fighting to destroy belief, now and in the past. Sheikh Mehmet talks about Shah Naqshband and the Grandsheikhs in India and how they strengthened the belief of so many. They are an example for us.
Beware of Shaitan
Feb28 2016 Turkish 17min
Our meeting here is just for Allah, not for buying or selling. Shaytan hates such gatherings. Good and bad are clear. Beware shaytan and leave doubtful things which are the door through which shaytan enters.
Feb27 2016 Turkish 7min
The summary of Quran is that believers should not be sad about anything of this world. In the end you will be in paradise with Allah’s Mercy. Be happy!
Those Who Do Not Desire Position (28:83)
Feb26 2016 Turkish 20min
To seek knowledge is a fard in Islam. Real knowledge comes from a connection to the Prophet (sas). Other kinds of learning only feed the ego. The desire for fame or position is worse than the desire for wealth because it cannot be shared with others. Tariqa connects you to the Prophet (sas).
Our Way; Mawlana’s Way
Feb25 2016 Turkish 14min
Mawlana planted the seed and it continues to grow. New people are still coming to his place for his baraka. A very few people have a love that makes it hard for them to come here, like the love of S. Bilal (ra) for the Prophet (sas). Others should come and continue on the way he planted.
Allah Calls to the Place of Peace (10:25)
Feb06 2016 Turkish 14min
People are looking for peace, inside and outside. Allah sent the Prophets to call people to the place of peace. The graves of holy ones are gardens of paradise. When you ask from Allah through these holy ones, if you don't get what you ask for in dunya, you will receive it in akhirah. Listen to the Prophet (saws) telling us to respect and visit these maqams.
The End of Time
Feb05 2016 Turkish 32min
Nuh (as) was trying to bring people to the right way for 950 years. Mawlana was like this also. Mawlana was bringing good tidings because we are in the end of times. Since the time of the Prophet (saws) we have been waiting for Mahdi (as) and there are many people believing they are Mahdi. But he is only one. Insha'Allah his time is near.

Only Follow Allah’s Order
Feb04 2016 Turkish 10min
We must be careful not to follow people and their ideas. People are giving ideas, all the time with new things. But after time, we see that these ideas are rubbish. Allah said "Follow Me, I will take you to Paradise." Those with their own ideas, will be in hell alongside those who followed them. Follow only the right things that Allah ordered, and we will be safe Insha'Allah.
Run to Allah (51:50)
Feb02 2016 Turkish 13min
All human beings complaining now, "Where must we go?" They are running away, taking dangerous journeys to other countries, looking for shelter. Allah says, "Come to Me!." Running from country to country, you will lose a precious thing; your adab and belief. If not you, your children, and grandchildren. The only safe place to run to is Allah.
Fill Your Life with Belief
Feb01 2016 Turkish 17min
We must fill our lives with love of Allah and the Prophet (saws), by following His order and doing good things. With the minimum of belief, you will be saved from eternal hell in the akhirah. Believers have value in the divine presence and Allah has mercy and love for them. May Allah help us to be precious people in the divine heaven.
Prayer, in Allah's Presence
Jan31 2016 Turkish 16min
It is an order from Allah for humans and jinns to pray five times a day. It will give you spiritual power, because you are in the presence of Allah when you pray. It is a gift from Allah. Begin with just two rakats. When you pray, it is heavy and difficult for your ego and for shaitan. Allah will reward you more and more.
Advice for Leaders
Jan30 2016 Turkish 15min
If leaders of jama'a are not strong enough to fight their ego, they should become normal dervishes. Shaitan and his followers can destroy a whole group of good people through their leader. If you are not sure, you must ask your Sheikh. Do not be like a traitor, it is a big responsibility. In both dunya and akhira, the leaders will be accountable.
Richness, Only for Allah
Jan29 2016 Turkish 31min
Allah created human beings; some of them rich, some poor and some normal. Two examples of Qarun and Suleyman (as) show that sometimes richness is good if you do not forget Allah. But sometimes it is bad. It makes you selfish and lose your belief. Only do it for Allah. Allah is al-Razzaq, be thankful for what you have and do not follow your ego.
