In this very important sohbat Sheikh Mehmet discusses the importance of not forgetting the Orders of Allah. He advises us not to listen to the talk of others but to listen to our heart. He makes clear his intention to obey his Sheikh and to rely on Allah.
Raw, Cooked, Burned
Oct02 2014 Turkish 16min
If left to ourselves we could never control the ego. If we follow the orders of the sheikh we can learn to control it. If we don’t listen the ego only grows worse as we age. We are raw. Tariqa cooks us until the ego is burned and we are clean.

Sheikh Mehmet reminds us that the Month of Dhu Hijjah is one of the 4 holy months in which fighting is forbidden. Performance of the Hajj is a fard. Muslims today do not take this seriously but travel the world and do not save for Hajj. Those not on Hajj should fast the first 9 days or at least the 8th and 9th day.
Allah likes the Truthful
Sep29 2014 Turkish 19min
Sheikh Mehmet warns us about the punishment for lying. Our Prophet (sas) was Al-Amin, the Truthful, and Al-Sadiq, the trustworthy. If we are to follow him and be of his nation we must try to be truthful and trustworthy. Then we will deserve, whether man or women, to be called ‘man’.
Purely for Allah
Sep28 2014 Turkish 25min
Sheikh Mehmet discusses the difference between the scholar whose aim is purely for Allah and the scholar who aims to please people. One has the level of the prophets of Bani Israil and if you sit with him your reward is great. The other is deceived and a deceiver and leads to ruin.
The Divine Trade
Aug20 2014 Turkish 17min
Do everything with the intention of doing it for Allah. Only good works profit the afterlife. Allah is generous in His favour so don’t be heedless. Just like a clever trader, snatch every opportunity for profit. Collect as much as you can but, protect it from the thieving ego and shaytan and all that may destroy it.
We All Follow Mawlana's Orders
Aug18 2014 Turkish 30min
The order of the Prophet is for Muslims to love each other and be as brothers.
Shaitan tries to mislead those who are on the right way. He uses his invention the Internet to incite people. It is best to avoid it. The majority of Mawlana’s, followers are protected from it. They stay together and all of them follow Mawlana’s orders.

Allah mentored Rasulallah in adab (good manners). Muslims should learn adab. What is adab? It is good morality and delicacy. It is gratefulness to Allah in everything, to love the Prophet above everyone else and to respect the Sahaba, learned scholars and those higher ranked than oneself. Adab is a beautiful thing. To be without adab is to be like an animal.

The Worst of Voices (31:19)
Aug14 2014 Turkish
Remember Allah constantly. Live as He wishes you should live because in attaining Allah’s pleasure actions become worship. Do not rely on your nafs. Let free, it cannot be trusted just like a donkey that cannot resist braying. And the Quran reminds us: The worst of all voices is the voice of the donkey (31:19).
Do Not Fear Death
Aug13 2014 Turkish 17min
Nobody will live forever, so it is essential to contemplate death. Yesterday slipped by and we may not be alive tomorrow. Think and live this way. The dead one says: I was a traveller, I was called to my destination and so shall you. Cherish the present and accept Allah’s decree. No need for sadness. Contemplate death. By accepting it, its fear is removed.
The One More Knowing
Aug12 2014 Turkish 20min
Those who are proud of their knowledge must understand that Allah has given only the tiniest bit to them. Claiming to know more is foolishness because as much as a person knows, another one knows more. Be thankful even for very hot weather. It has benefit, as long as Allah and His Prophet’s advice is kept.
Be Awake for Akhirat
Aug11 2014 Turkish 17min
Our destination is Akhirat. We are like travellers, journeying through the desert in a caravan. It is dangerous. The heedless, the strays, will be left behind. This caravan is a company of the beloved servants of Allah. Safety means being awake and journeying with them. If not, ours will be the loss and the regret.

Allah loves the young worshipper. To follow Allah is easy although shaitan tries to make it seem difficult. A young person has to war against many desires in order to obey Allah and in return Allah rewards him generously. Older ones also, by Allah’s consent, may achieve similar rewards by striving to remain young.
The Time Comes Near (54:1)
Aug08 2014 Turkish 28min
The Day of Judgement is near. The chaos of present day events is a sign of this. The greater majority of Muslims is the Ahl as-Sunnah; peaceful and quiet Muslims. People are in confusion over events but Allah is in charge. The merciful will be shown mercy. Among them are the Ottomans who await Mahdi (as) to deliver him his trust.

Object and Be Thrown Out
Aug07 2014 Turkish 26min
May Allah protect man whose nafs draws him towards evil. Allah commands but Shaytan interferes. Man must do as Allah wills. Obedience brings ease. Let man do his line of work and excel at it, as interfering with his opinions where Allah has decreed leads to chaos. Who is Shaytan to object? He who objects will be thrown out.
