"We accept You, O our Lord and we are coming. What You say we accept and are happy to do." These are the most beautiful words in Islām. Today the pilgrims are on ‘Arafāt and at maghrib they become Ḥajjī. One day a year, certain place, certain people. All other pilgrimages are imitations.
Love the Prophet ﷺ
Sep10 2016 Turkish 22min
Today is Yawmu t-Tarwiyah. We give thanks a 1000 times to Allāh for making us among the Nation of the Beloved. To love him is obligatory, more than your family or yourself. But to love him is also easy because Allāh made him the finest and best. Even in dreams he smells of roses. Our intention is to follow his sunnah and we ask forgiveness for what we cannot do.
The Ten Days of Dhū l-Ḥijjah
Sep09 2016 Turkish 23min
Allāh makes an oath by the ten nights (89:2) these are the first ten nights of Dhū l-Ḥijjah. Who can fast these days gets much reward. Who can fast the 8th and 9th is forgiven the sins of the year before and the year after. Who can fast the 9th day is given the reward of S. Ayyūb (as). The animal sacrifice of ‘Īd is required and must be done with mercy.
A Shaykh for the World
Sep08 2016 Turkish 21min
Shaykh Mehmet is just returning from a visit to the Far East, one of the many places his father used to visit to meet with those who loved him for the sake of Allāh. There he found that no one had forgotten Mawlānā. When one serves for Ākhirah it lasts forever.
Accept the Truth
Jul24 2016 Turkish 11min
Allāh ordered the Prophet (sas) to tell people to accept the Truth, al-Ḥaqq. This is a command for all people until the end of time. For those who accept, there is paradise here and in the hereafter, in shā’a Llāh.
Long Life Full of Goodness
Jul23 2016 Turkish 14min

Armageddon Must Come
Jul22 2016 Turkish 31min
We are getting close to the end of the time allotted the children of Ādam (as). The whole world knows that Armageddon must come.

Be Prepared for Death
Jul21 2016 Turkish 12min
The Prophet (sas) said that two things stay young in every person no matter how old they get: love of life, and hope they will live forever. But Ṭarīqah teaches us to think of our death at least seven times a day. We must be prepared so we are not ashamed.
Think Only Good
Jul20 2016 Turkish 12min
The Prophet (sas) said to think and look only at what is good at all times. This makes him happy with us and keeps us pure Muslims from whose hand no one fears harm. We ask Allah to help us do good for others.
Those Who Have No Value
Jul19 2016 Turkish 14min
There are two kinds of people who will have no value on Judgment Day. The first are those who are proud because the dress of pride belongs solely to Allah. The second are those who doubt the orders of Allah and choose not to follow them.
Allāh Does What He Wants
Jul18 2016 Turkish 14min
We want things but what happens is what Allah wants. Everything is according to His Will. But we should be happy even in these difficult times because what He wants is what is best for us.
Mahdī (as) and the Role of Women

Everyone Is a Shepherd
Jul17 2016 Turkish 15min
Everyone has responsibility at least for himself, his family. Like a good shepherd he must take care of them. If the parents are good the children learn and the whole community is good. This is the way of the Prophet (sas).
In Your Ego's Hand
Jul16 2016 Turkish 16min
Pray not to be left in the hand of your bad ego because ego never takes you to a good place if it controls you. You must control it and take it higher. The events in Turkey during the night are a sign of the End of Times and a lesson to all Muslims not to disobey the orders of Allāh.
Victory Is from Allāh (8:10)
Jul16 2016 Turkish 13min
Sheikh Mehmet gives thanks for the aborted coup in Turkey the night before. There was a minimum of bloodshed and it was over in a night when usually it would have lasted a year. It was a sign from Allāh. The people remembered Allāh and He gave them victory.
Be Straight (11:112)
Jul15 2016 Turkish 28min
A Muslim doesn’t cheat, either in the world or in religion. Keep Allāh’s Orders. Don’t change to please people or to follow imagination. Karāmāt are not obligatory. A friend is one who speaks truly.
Real Islām Is Ṭarīqah
Jul14 2016 Turkish 19min
All the fitnah in the Muslim world today is caused by a handful of bad scholars, who, perhaps without knowing, are following shayṭān. Ṭarīqah, especially the Naqshbandīyyah, will correct the situation just as S. Abū Bakr (ra) corrected the Arabs who strayed after the passing of the Prophet (sas).
Allāh's Order Is for Everybody
Jul13 2016 Turkish 16min
Allāh’s order is for everybody the same, even for the Prophet (sas). It is obligatory to learn and important to teach. You can’t follow your ego and teach what pleases people if it is not correct. There are no exceptions.
