Holy New Year

This is the New Year of the Hijri calendar which determines the holy days of Islam. This New Year, unlike the one that is celebrated around the world after Christmas, this day and the 10th day, Ashura, are holy days and to celebrate them brings goodness.

The Natural Religion
Oct23 2014 English 13min
All people are born Muslim, only their parents make them something else. Islam is Allah’s original religion brought by all the Prophets since Adam (as). It is natural for all people whether rich or poor, black or white. Other religions are no longer the original but have become artificial.

Contentment is good behaviour and one of the biggest favours of Allah. Allah knows what is best for you. Don’t look to what others have. Parents used to teach this to their children but now no one knows it themselves and so cannot teach it.

By way of a true story, Sheikh Mehmet, warns against following the wrong people on the wrong way. We will be punished for any wrong turn whether done knowingly or unknowingly. But Allah is the Forgiver. We must learn from our mistakes.
Don’t Lose Hope
Oct07 2014 Turkish 21min
Allah is the Forgiver. Don’t lose hope. If you make a mistake without knowing He will forgive you. However, you must not repeat your mistake or persist in it or claim you were right, because stubbornness is from shaytan.

We sacrifice a sheep or cow on the occasion of Eid in obedience to Allah’s Order and in memory of Sayyidina Ibrahim. There is much blessing in this for both the one who sacrifices and the animal sacrificed. There is no pain for the animal so don’t worry.

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.
