Renew Yourself for Your Lord

Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

7 December 2009 Lefke, Cyprus

(Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

Astaghfirullah, dastoor Ya Sayyidi, madad. As-salamu `alaykum, O our listeners. Don’t listen to me, I know nothing, but you must try to hear, listen and obey the One who is granting us an understanding from His endless Mercy Oceans and asking us to be obedient servants. We may stand up for His glory and say, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, la ilaaha illa-Llah, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar wa lillahi ‘l-hamd!

We are giving our most high respects to that most honored one in His Divine Presence, Sayyidina Muhammad (s.) Alfu salaat, alfu salaam alayka yaa Sayyidi ‘l-awwaleen wa ‘l-akhireen (master of the earliest and latest creations). You are Nabee, Prophet from pre-Eternal up to Eternal. All creations are giving you their salutes and most high respects. Please, yaa Sayyidi ‘l awwaleen wa ‘l-akhireen, O our most beloved Rasool, give us from your intercession! That gives us honor here and Hereafter, forever. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

O People! I am hearing and also you try to hear heavenly addressing to make you an honored one. Who is asking to be an honored servant must try to hear, listen and obey. That gives you an honor that is going to be more and more and never coming down and giving you honor forever. We are asking from our master, the master of this planet, dunya, to look after us. We are asking the heavenly support of the grandmaster of this planet. There are so many masters on this planet, but only one is the most high and reaching to a heavenly level. He is the only one in the heavenly presence of the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s.)

We are saying, along with other people, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani ‘r-rajeem. All the time Shaytan is trying to harm Mankind and his mission is to give trouble to people. Those who listen to him are always falling in Trouble Oceans; always falling through oceans of miseries and suffering. We are therefore saying, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani ‘r-rajeem. O our Lord, please give us Your protection, not to fall through Shaytan’s traps; if they catch someone it is so difficult to save himself! Therefore, don’t forget to say, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani ‘r-rajeem, to run away from Shaytan and shaytanic actings, efforts, and works.

What is the sign of Shaytanic traps? First, Shaytan is showing you that it is a best being for Mankind and calling you, “Come here and you will be happy forever and find endless enjoyment.” This is the first trap of Shaytan to catch people. Shaytan has countless traps, because there are now seven billion people. How many traps Shaytan is using? First Shaytan says, “O People you must leave old things. You must “renew” your minds, your way of thinking. You must leave everything that you were doing.”

“Therefore, O Mr. John, what do you think? New Year coming and bringing so many new things; so many new fashions, and you should look after new fashionable things. You must now change everything that you are using from clothes, eating, living, housewares; you must change your cars, your minds, and everything that belongs to Year 2009. You must renew yourselves.” That is the first teaching. Therefore, you think, “Yes, a new year is coming and we must renew ourselves in every way of living, and every sulook, maslak.”

If you are going on this highway, you must change direction along another one, for example, “If you like to be free ones and become most understanding ones about your life … you must change everything from the beginning up to end, from A to Z.” In cars they have a book, A to Z. Shaytan is urging, “O People! First you must try to change your understanding (of) the way you look at everything, as new circumstances coming. You must try to arrange your lives in a different fashion.”

O People! all those living on this planet; from small ones up to old ones, you are all thinking now and saying “a New Year”, but it is really not going to be new; it is going to be old, not new. Why saying new? You must be happy like me, a person who is going to turn ninety this year. What happiness it brings me because I am now going to be a new one! Our lives on this planet going to be new. 2009 will become an old year, and 2010 the new year, which means we are also going to be new ones.

(Mawlana Shaykh imitates a conversation.)

“O my darling, what do you think of my thinking?”

“O my darling, I never understood what you are saying. Each year we are coming down and you are saying to me you are getting younger.”

“O my darling, don’t make (fun of) my pleasure! New year is coming and I am going to be younger, and you are saying the opposite—that I am getting older! No older, you must say always New Year is coming and a ‘renewment’ coming to ourselves.”

“You are believing in this?”

Another old one saying, “O my friend, what is your darling saying?”

“My darling is saying that when New Year comes, we are getting younger because we are getting new.”

It is the worst Shaytanic teaching for Mankind, that you are getting younger and younger! Every year whatever is new is going to be old, and when another year comes, it is a new year!

“O my darling, a happy New Year to you.”

“Oh, this is what it means?”

“Yes, I am very happy that I am reaching a new life through this old year. I am becoming new, a new man to me.”

“I am looking at you as you are using two sticks, yet you are saying, ‘I am getting younger.’ What is that, O my darling?”

“My darling, leave that and look now, there is show. When I am dressing like this, new fashion clothes, I am getting new and fresh.”

‘‘Which one you are saying I must use? (Mawlana looks through a monocle.) “Which one? This one?”

Until he sees this one, ten ones going and coming. His darling is saying, “New year and new fashion, I am getting to be like a pretty, eighteen-year-old girl that night.”

“I think that you have something wrong in your mind!”

“You can never, never say this to me! I believe that the New Year is bringing a new man to me.”

“If you are not happy with me, I am going to look for another one - for new marriage.”

“Hah! New marriage? If you are asking a new marriage because you are getting younger, what about for me? I am also going to look another one. But I must use another perspective to look which one is suitable for me. They are running so quickly, I can’t catch one of them to say that I am asking marriage from you.”

“Don’t say this. They may come to you, when you are showing your golden chains. When you are showing this diamond worth $100,000 they should run to you and should say, ‘O my darling I love you. Please give this ring.’ I think that is worth ten dollars!”

“Hah! Ten dollars? I am not a worker to use ten dollar diamond. This is $100,000.”

“Please, O my darling, give this to me, because you are getting younger and it is suitable for us as our new marriage gift.”

“Yes sir, I may do this. When the year is okay, I shall give you, raghman `ala anfiha, inspite of her wish.”

Apes can be cheated quickly and Shaytan is making people (to be) like apes, cheating them, saying, “You are getting ‘renewing’; the New Year gives you a ‘renewment’.” First teaching of Shaytan for Mankind, cheating them, “You are getting younger. It is New Year, therefore, you must not use old-fashion things.”

Everything inside, we may put outside, and we must bring new furniture, (then thinking,) “Oh, I am getting younger.”

O People! Beware of Shaytan, cheating you in everything and making you not to think of dying and of death. Once upon a time your fathers and mothers were... (Mawlana coughs.) Shaytan is not happy with me, making me to not say what he is doing with people! They are thinking that a ’renewment’ coming. They are never thinking that their last day is coming, because for everyone, there is a last day. There is no more life after that last day for them on this planet, and they should be taken by force or by surrendering.

A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani ‘r-rajeem, is a holy command from heavens to all nations through every prophet. It was sent as a warning, “O People! Don’t listen to Shaytan, it is cheating you and you will regret it.”

A` oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani ‘r-rajeem. You must beware of Shaytan, it’s orders and ideas; changing every year, but bringing the same point, that takes Man into darkness. Shaytan’s thinking and main point is to take people from enlightened worlds to dark worlds. As mentioned through heavenly knowledge in holy books, the Lord of Heavens sent every prophet as a warner. All prophets were warners bringing 124,000 reminders to all Mankind, because biggest harm coming to people from shaytanic cheating.

O People! Now after fifteen days a new year is coming. Don’t be cheated! Look at what your Creator, the Lord of Heavens, is saying and what He is asking from you: to be new always for His heavenly service.

O my listeners! Don’t listen to me but listen to His holy and heavenly messages through prophets. What He is saying, “O My servants, don’t forget that you are My servants, and I am asking best servanthood from you. O My servants, you are refusing to be My servants and occupying yourselves with nonsense through this life. What is that ‘renewment’? How you are asking ‘renewment’ when you see daily, thousands, millions of people running away from this life to other, unknown territories? Why are you not thinking on it?

O my listeners! Make your ego believe in holy commands of the Lord of Heavens, and follow these commands: you will be honored. As long as you are hearing and obeying Shaytan, you are losing your honor and you are going to be dishonored. As long as you are trying to follow His heavenly services, you should reach a position that gives you honor-over-honor, life-over-life, lights-over-lights, happiness-on-happiness. You should find the best from everything! That is the honor of being from Mankind. The Lord of Heavens granting them that honor, because He is saying, “You are My servants. I am accepting you to be My servants through My heavenly levels, through My heavens.”

People now are only hearing and asking to follow the shaytanic teachings that are coming through PhD people, doctors and professors. All of them first in line, listening to Shaytan, saying, “You are true.” If someone is saying to them, “Listen to what the Lord of Heavens is saying,” they are never happy, instead when hearing Shaytan and shaytanic nonsense and dirty things, they are very happy!

The holy command from Allah Almighty is, “Don’t eat dirty things! O People! You are created clean and I am granting to you clean foods for your physical being. Keep my enjoyful grants, it is for your honor. I am forbidding you to eat and drink dirty things, because only pigs eating dirtiness, even their dirt they are eating. Don’t eat pigs, because they are dirty.”

The Lord of Heavens is saying to human nature, “I am creating you clean and offering you clean things and I am ordering you to use clean things. Don’t eat and drink dirty things. I made for you clean food and clean drinks. If you are not listening to Me and eating and drinking dirty things, you are losing your heavenly appearance on the Day of Resurrection and are coming like dogs and pigs, that are eating their dirtiness also.” You should come like this, but where are people, (are they) ever hearing or listening or asking to keep that order? When they are passing away, they will find themselves through dirty sewage channels saying, “What is that?!!” That is what you were eating through your life: sleep in it, eat and drink it. Allah (swt) protects us!

O People! Use your minds and try to hear, to listen and to obey your Lord’s holy commands. You will be best ones in Divine Presence! You will be rewarded such grants that no one before is seeing, hearing or knowing!

O People! Be patient. Be patient against your egos, be patient against the demands of Shaytan and you will be happy here and Hereafter.

This is well-known knowledge. People just caught through shaytanic tricks and traps that are ready and you can find them everywhere. Tricks that are catching people and putting through traps. (Shaytan says,) “Be free ones!” Everywhere people are saying, “We need freedom.” Freedom for what? Real freedom is to be free from Shaytan and from your ego and it’s demands. Leave them, so that you will be (truly) free ones! If not, ‘freedom’ has no meaning and you are being ridden by Shaytan, like a man riding his donkey. Shaytan is riding on you and sending you everywhere that is not clean, but dirty.

Think on it! This is an important warning for everyone nowadays, because a year has passed that was full of troubles, miseries, and sufferings. As they are saying, the coming year would be a new period of time, one new year. Beware, and keep yourself from falling through oceans of troubles and miseries in the coming year. Don’t just prepare yourself for one night or one day, dressing in beautiful clothes and having so many foods, eating dancing and singing. That is not for you! What your Lord is asking for you is to be clean ones and prepare yourselves. A day will come, your last day, when you will be taken from this life to another unknown distance. May Allah forgive us.

O People! ad-deena ‘n-naseehat, “Religion is to give good advice” to people. All prophets did this as much as they could, but people never liked their advice and went against them, killing them or sending them away. Finally, heavenly punishment and cursing came on them, finishing them and making them disappear. May Allah protect us!

Give time for your Lord’s advice. Hear heavenly advising and try to be even a weak servant. We are weak servants, (but) try to keep it. At least if we can’t keep servanthood fully, we must try as much as possible to do something; everything that would make our Lord pleased with us. If you are pleasing your Lord, He will make you pleased also. If you make everything for the sake of pleasing the Divine Presence, the Lord of Heavens would make you to be joyful, here and Hereafter.

We are asking forgiveness from Allah Almighty for the most honored one, Sayyidina Muhammad (s), Ya Rabbee.
