There are certain things to be done in the first 10 days of Dhū l-Ḥijjah. Qurbān is wājib for Ḥanafī and sunnah mu’akkadah for Shāfi‘ī. It is an ‘ibādah that should not be abandoned. You can send the money to sacrifice in a poor country but you cannot just give money to the poor.
To Be Helpful for People
Aug05 2019 Turkish 15min
We believe that both good and bad are from Allāh ﷻ. Good is to be helpful to people. If you do good be thankful to Allāh ﷻ. If you do bad, you must ask forgiveness and not excuse yourself by saying that was the will of Allāh ﷻ.
The Blessings of the Dergah
Jun15 2019 Turkish 15min
The Dergah of Mawlānā Shaykh Nāẓim (q) is a special place and people worry that they cannot keep its blessings when they return home. However, all his dergahs around the world carry the same blessing, the same atmosphere. Spend an hour a week in the dergah of your country or in dhikr in your home and always be connected.

It Is Time to Be Patient
Jun14 2019 Turkish 20min
There are two parts of īmān, shukr and ṣabr. We must be thankful to Allāh ﷻ for all His ﷻ gifts and we must wait patiently for victory to come. In these times it is most important to be patient and not be foolish.
This Time Is Like a Dark Night
Jun13 2019 Turkish 14min
The Prophet ﷺ said that at the end of time it will be dark like a dark night. Most people will be on the wrong way. They neither love the Prophet ﷺ nor appreciate the favour of being in his ﷺ Nation. Without ṭarīqah they don’t know what to do and have no light.
Loyalty Is Very Important
Jun12 2019 Turkish 21min
To honour your commitments, to keep your word, to be loyal to those who have benefited you (wafā’) is a part of the adab of the Prophet ﷺ and the mashāyikh. People today change their allegiance. The Qur’ān gives an example of this in the story of Mūsá (as) and Qārūn. Do not trust and do not help these people.
Liars Cannot Be Muslim
Jun11 2019 Turkish 19min
After the time of the Prophet ﷺ people with bad intention began to report false ḥadīth. Allāh ﷻ sent the great Muḥaddithūn with light to sort out the true from the false. Today people are telling lies in order to boost their own egos about what Mawlānā told them. Allāh ﷻ and His ﷻ Prophet ﷺ dislike liars and their destination is Hell.
The Things Allāh ﷻ Made Precious
Jun10 2019 Turkish 11min
Allāh ﷻ made all things but only some things He ﷻ made precious: the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ and the religion that He ﷻ perfected, Islām. People today don’t know the difference between what is real and precious and what is plastic and garbage. Don’t run after what has no value.
So Allāh ﷻ Remembers You
Jun08 2019 Turkish 16min
Many people want to leave something behind them so people remember them but it is more important to leave something so that Allāh ﷻ remembers you. These are good deeds that continue to be written for you after you die. If your intention is to give until Qiyāmah, Allāh ﷻ will not disappoint you.
The Reward of 70 Ṣaḥābah
Jun07 2019 Turkish 15min
The Prophet ﷺ says that for following his ﷺ orders Allāh ﷻ will give the people of the later times the reward of 70 Ṣaḥābah. The Companions of the Prophet ﷺ were the most precious of people. They followed every order immediately and asked for more. This is a big honour for the people of today who are too lazy to do even what is good for them.

Ḥājjah Amīnah Sulṭān
Jun06 2019 Turkish 17min
On this blessed third day of ‘Īd fifteen years ago our mother, Ḥājjah Amīnah Sulṭān went happily to Ākhirah. She went happily in the knowledge that she had done the best of what people can do in this world. She is an example for all. In sha’ā Llāh we will join her in Jannah.
Shyness Is from Īmān
Jun05 2019 Turkish 10min
Now in the last days, good and bad are reversed. People think it is bad for their children to be shy but shyness is a virtue that prevents bad actions. Shyness is part of a woman’s beauty in particular.
The Real ‘Īd
Jun04 2019 Turkish 16min
The hearts of even those who don’t pray or fast still respond to the ‘Īd days because these are the real days of celebration. Allāh ﷻ rewards those who fast and those who celebrate ‘Īd again as much. Unlike the made-up days of celebration, the two ‘Īdayn give and do not take away.
Ask for a Good End
Jun03 2019 Turkish 14min
We must think of every moment as our last and do good. On the last day of Ramadān and on ‘Īd, Allāh ﷻ rewards us double, and if we fast six days of Shawwāl it is as if we fasted the entire year. May we keep and not waste the good deeds we have done, and have a good end in Jannah, in shā’a Llāh.
Even Sadness Becomes Easy
Jun02 2019 Turkish 8min
The Prophet ﷺ used to ask Allāh ﷻ to make things easy. If He ﷻ wills even sadness can become easy. If He ﷻ wills even small things can be difficult. Allāh ﷻ makes it easy for those who remember Him ﷻ, in shā’a Llāh.
Do Not Harm People
Jun01 2019 Turkish 14min
The strong think there is no one to defend the weak and the poor so they take what they want. But Allāh ﷻ is their defender and His ﷻ anger is on oppressors. Even when you are wronged be careful not to do harm. It is better to forgive and ask your reward from Allāh ﷻ.
