Sultan al-Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Nazim
18 December 2009 Lefke, Cyprus
As-salaamu ` alaykum yaa `ibaadAllah, the servants of our Lord, Allah Almighty. (Mawlana stands.)
O our Lord! Forgive us, help us, bless us. Alfu, alfu salaat, alfu, alfu salaam `ala Sayyidi 'l-awwaleen wa’l-aakhireen. Madad yaa RijaalAllah.
We are saying a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem. If you are asking for a connection with heavenly levels, you must say a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani 'r-rajeem and Shaytan is just kicked out. And we are saying, Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem, and angels saying, "Welcome to you, welcome to you, our Lord's servant."
We know nothing. We are only depending on what our Grandshaykh is putting through my heart and speaking. I am not claiming that I am knowing something. Everyone is knowing more than me and according to your knowledge you are going to be judged.
"O My servant! Come and say, what you learned through your whole life?" "I learned this and that, this and that." And as you learned, you lived. You were making just straight on that way? You learned but were not keeping what you learned. What you must learn? Madad yaa Sultan al-awliya, madad yaa rijaalAllah. What you are going to learn, when He, Almighty asking? We must know what we learned and for what we learned it.
What was the real aim from learning?
"I learned to be driver. I learned to know how to fly planes."
What you learned?
"I learned to be a computer engineer."
What you learned?
"I learned to build concrete buildings."
What you learned?
"I learned how you may make a car."
Angels may ask, which brand! (Laughter) Going outside because I must swear, okay? Anyone if not happy may go. More than here, over there swearing on him.
"Oh what you learned?"
"I learned baking."
You, what you learned?
"I was such a person never learning, but I am putting on my chest and behind me, 'political person,' you know? Because I was first-class person and I just fought against monarchies and coming on their thrones to make my ego happy and to be so proud."
"I learned to make gramophone."
"I learned to drive horses."
"You, Abdur-Razzaq, what you learned?"
He is saying, "I learned to carry donkeys." So many things. Very happy, Abdur-Razzaq. I am sending him...
"What you learned?"
"I learned to make sausages because Chechnyan people they love it too much, and I was preparing for dogs bones because they like it also."
"You, what you were learning?"
"I learned important things that I can't say about in your Divinely Presence, you know?"
"I learned to be shepherd."
So many kinds of learning. If the Lord of Heavens asking, "I don't know how many people may say, 'I tried to know Your orders'; I was learning how I can keep my ego from evils; I learned how people can save themselves from devils." You may ask, "What is it, devils?" Devils are cheating ones, O people. Cheating people. Cheaters. Perhaps through billions, you may take a handful of people who were trying to learn about their Lord. Leave about their Lord, but they were asking to know what are the rights of their Creator. Now people are foolish ones. If you are asking, "How you are in existence?" he is saying, "My dad through my mom creating me." Your "Creator" is your mom and dad? Haasha! Ptuh (spit)! No one saying, "My Lord created me." And what was your mission when you are knowing Who created you? Then you learned what was your mission?
This is for whole Mankind now that they may be listening through east and west.
ثُمَّ لَتُسْأَلُنَّ يَوْمَئِذٍ عَنِ النَّعِيمِ
thumma latus'alunna yawmaidhin `ani 'n-na`eem.
Then, shall you be questioned that Day, about the joy (you indulged in). (102:8)
Ayatul kareema. O our Salafi `ulama, what you are saying? You are Arabs and you are knowing too much; claiming, but you are never saying. Except Arabs, they understand. I am asking to you, what Allah Almighty saying? Asta`idhu billah, tell me, "waqifoohum - Make them to stop!" Qif ! Stop! For what? Innahum mas'ooloon. Arabs, where are Arabs? But I am saying to those proud `ulama, Salafis or khalafis!
وَقِفُوهُمْ إِنَّهُم مَّسْئُولُونَ
Waqifoohum innahum mas'ooloon.
But stop them, for they must be asked. (37:24)
Why you are not saying Hanbali, Shafi`i or Maliki `ulama? What means salaf? Salaf, you may understand as just passed away, from the time of Adam up to today. You are representing those people? Why you are saying (you are) "Salafi"? Do you think you know what Jesus Christ (pbuh) was teaching hawaariyyoon, his disciples?
Today is a new beginning, the year 1431, and the Lord of Heavens is not happy with us because all of us are disobedient servants! You can't find a handful of obedient servants. Therefore, just moved heavenly anger and approaching. I don't know what is going to happen through this holy month, Muharramu 'l-Haraam. Allah Almighty was reaching to His prophets (to protect them) when Shayaateen and their followers disturbing and rushing on them for killing them. And they were asking, "O our Lord! Reach to Your weak servants. Disobedient servants are rushing on us, asking to take ourselves away and to make this globe only for shaytans, not to be for Allah." Their aim, their last target and hope, is to make this whole world laa deeni, no any religion!
But a heavenly anger is ready to come on their heads! I am running away to Allah Almighty because I am not happy with my ego. If anyone is happy with their ego, they are not happy with Allah, because first fighter according to the Lord of Heavens, was our ego. Our ego never going to be an obedient one. Therefore, I am saying when the Lord of Heavens asking, "What you learned about Me? And then, what you learned about My rights on you, as I am Creator; what were My rights on My servants, you learned it?"
"No, we were secular ones"
"Take them away (from My Presence)!"
Astaghfirullah, Astaghfirullah, Astaghfirullah.
I was hearing in Madinatu 'l-Munawwara when that eclipse happening a secret sound saying, astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah, "O Allah, forgive me." O People! Say astaghfirullah. The Seal of Prophets (s) was saying, "I am saying astaghfirullah daily, 70 times." If he is saying it 70 times, for ourselves 70 million is not enough!
You can look and see through the faces of a very few people, a clean face, brightened face, enlightened face. Very, very, very few! (Mawlana mimics as if grooming in mirror.) That man, looking very handsome and ladies at every foot, they are taking and looking. (Laughter) So many ones that they are using so many cosmetics. Coming from them very bad-smelling. Therefore, they are trying to cover that smelling from themselves by using cosmetics.
Sahaba of the Seal of Prophets (s) were dressing one shirt that you can't know if it was white or black. They had no water for washing and if washing one, they must sit naked waiting for it to dry. Therefore, they are using this for life and my grandshaykh was saying to me, "O Nazim Effendi, their clothes you can't differentiate if it is white or black, but if you are smelling, it is smelling of best perfume of roses."
Prophet's (s) command was saying, taahiru turooqu 'l-Qur’an, "Purify the pathways of Qur'an." Keep clean. It is the way of imaan, the way of dhikr, the way of life. Every Sahaba (r), their breathings just so beautiful smelling, because they were clean, they were following holy commands of Allah Almighty, taahiru turooqu 'l-Qur’an. May Allah forgive us.
O People! People are on wrong way and therefore crisis climbing. Not coming down, but day-by-day getting more and more and more until they are coming to the way of Paradise. If not, they should be taken away! That is, all nations now, looking about expected huge events, mentioned in hadith shareef, al-marhamatu 'l-kubra. Beware, O People! Hear, listen and obey. The Lord of Heavens asking that knowledge: what you learned about your Creator and what you learned about your Lords' rights, how you are doing for His rights? Learn this, as no one is learning; everyone trying to learn about this dunya! Even the Muslim world is trying to be westernized...
May Allah forgives me, and forgives you. We are hoping in this holy month for heavenly help and support for weak servants. We are not claiming we are doing any servanthood but we are asking forgiveness. Forgive us, O our Lord, for the honor of Your most honored servant, Sayyidina Muhammad (s.) (Mawlana stands.)
