Gracias, Gracias. Are you happy? Very well, Bon Venido!
Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem.
O People! O my sons, grandsons, granddaughters, you are coming from long distances and you are asking for Allah Almighty’s pleasure. If a person is asking to make His Lord pleased with him, Allah Almighty is making him pleased all his life. If a person is asking to live in a good position here, he should reach good and pleasure here and Hereafter. Therefore, I am happy that you are coming from long distances, and I am nothing. I hope that you will go to visit the Seal of Prophets, for Rasoolullah (s) to be happy with you. Have you been for Hajj? Anyone?
(In Ibiza, Shaykh.)
He is a very good host, he is making such delicious food, to make me happy...
(My wifes’s barakah and she is sending you a humble gift, Mawlana.)
You are sending? Which one?
(My wife is not here.)
(I am new.)
Your first time here? What is your name?
Are you married?
(Yes, with children and grandchildren.)
Where is the father of the children?
(One father is dead and the other is in England.)
Then where is your husband?
(I am divorced.)
You should find one who is also divorced, for you. She is divorced, you should find an unmarried divorced one.
(She is also new...)
Coming for the first time? From Mexico?
(Yes Mexico, but living in Spain.)
Mexico, north of South America.
You are a professor?
(Yes, I am a teacher.)
Teach me something!
I am a student. What was she teaching?
(Balance of the electro-magnetic field.)
That is very good. Balance, in the space of our world and up there. There must be a balance between space and our globe that is the attraction that is keeping our world in orbit. She must be very clever, yes very.
(Thank you very much.)
How many galaxies are there?
(A lot of them.)
A lot means millions, billions, trillions, quadrillions?
(There is no number.)
No number, infinity?
No beginning, no ending. Eternity! Eternity, eternity. Oh! Everything is asking for eternity, eternity, eternity. Everyone is asking to be in the eternal life. Allah! But Mankind are asking to live more and more and more on this planet. Yet it is impossible because our material is not suitable for eternity. Therefore, we are going to be changed. When changing a new being is coming to our souls and it is suitable for eternity. Still people are running on this planet, and are asking to be much more here, or to taste from something that our physical being is enjoying. They are not asking for spiritual pleasure. But our physical beings pleasure is going to be cut, and our spiritual beings pleasure is forever.
But people, I am sorry to say, that people are cheated, they are cheated for this very short time’s pleasure although it is nothing. Therefore, the Lord of Heavens is sending selected ones, chosen ones, to teach people and to inform them that beyond our material life will be another life that belongs to the Heavens. But people are drunk, they are never thinking. In the Holy Qur’an, the Lord of Heavens has sent us more than a hundred times saying, “O People try to think on it, try to think about what I am sending to you!” But people are not taking care and are giving their care for nonsense.
You are Espagnoles; we are from the Ottomans; they are from the Arabs; they are from Germans; they are from the French. All of us are from Adam and Eve (a)! But the Lord of Heavens is giving us uniqueness, because the Lord of Heavens never uses a photocopy machine. No, everyone is only one of a kind. Everyone’s personality is only one. He is not making a copy, no. This is the greatness of the Lord of Heavens . Creation is going on from pre-Eternal up to Eternal, going on without stopping. The Lord of Heavens is asking from ourselves, “O My servants, think about yourselves, think about where you were before, and think about where you will be after a while!”
Are you understanding what I am saying? My English is limited. May Allah bless you and may Allah open to you understanding from spirituality. People are running after material aspects that have no value. If the whole globe was golden; if the walls of the globe were from diamonds, what is it going to give you? Nothing, nothing. O my daughters, granddaughters, grandsons please give some time from your life to think about something beyond our understanding, asking to know some more, beyond your physical being. Also we must try to know something about our spirituality and our spiritual being. May the Lord of Heavens dress you with heavenly honor dressings. May Allah forgive us.
Sing now! (As-Salaatul Badriyya)
Mashaa-Allah, BarakAllahu feekum. Inshaa-Allah we should be under the Holy Flag of the Seal of Prophets (s). Fatihah. Put your hands (Mureeds hold onto Mawlana Shaykh Nazim’s (q) cane)
Allahu Allahu Allahu Haqq, Allahu Allahu Allahu Haqq, Allahu Allahu Allahu Haqq.
HasbunAllahu wa n`ima 'l-wakeel wa laa hawla wa laa quwatta illa billahi 'l-`Aliyyu 'l-`Azheem
From pre-Eternal up to Eternal. Laa ilaaha illa-Llah Muhammadun Rasoolullah.
Allahumma thabitna `ala al-haqq Allahumma thabitna `ala al-Haqq
Allahumma thabbithum `ala al-Haqq
Bi jaahi anzaltahu alayhi Suratu ’l-Fatihah
Ash-hadu an laa ilaaha illa-Llah, wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan `abduhu wa habeebuhu wa rasooluh
The Lord of Heavens is praising him. He is a good one and a powerful one. Yahya, I hope that he should see Jesus Christ (a). His ancestors were clean ones. Yahya, if he is asking (a name) Ahmad, Yahya is also okay.
(This one is asking you for advice.)
Try to be with Allah, don’t forget that He is with you. You can’t move your eyes without Him. You can’t breathe without Him. You can’t speak without Him. You can’t live without Him.
Laiqa is the name of Sayyiddina Ishaq’s (a) wife. I was visiting him, here was Ishaq (a) and here was Laiqa (a). (Mawlana Shaykh Nazim gestures that they are side by side). I like that name! Good, very good. It is a sweet name. Fatimah, after the Holy Prophet’s (s) holy daughter, Fatimah. Allah is opening a special entrance in Paradise and she is going first and taking with her everybody whose name is Fatimah. May Allah give you happiness here and Hereafter, to be with you inshaa-Allah under the holy flag of the Heavens, here and Hereafter.
(Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. She is working as a clown, to make children happy, she is asking blessings for her job.)
Very good, she is just blessed! You are working for small ones and with the small ones there are special angels to protect them . What is your name?
You are Fatimah also. Mashaa-Allah , very good. My grand-mummy is Fatimah. No questioning, enter to Paradise. Pray for me, pray for me.
