(Mawlana Shaykh stands.) Dastoor, yaa RijaalAllah.
Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, `Azeez Allah.
Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Kareem Allah.
Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Subhaan Allah.
Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Sultaan Allah.
Alfu alfu salaat, alfu alfu salaam `alayka yaa Sayyidi 'l-awwaleen wa’l-aakhireen. Allahumma zidhu `izzan wa sharafan wa nooran wa surooran wa ridwaanan wa sultaana. Habeebak! Habeebana, habeebi Rabbi 'l-`alameen min al-azal ila 'l-abad Sayyidi 'l-awwaleen wa’l-aakhireen, Sayyidina Muhammad sallallahu `alayhi wa `ala aalihi wa saahbihi wa sallam. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)
As-salaamu `alaykum our attenders, listeners, happy people, handsome people, and beautiful people! As-salaamu `alaykum Children of Adam! As-salaamu `alaykum yaa Ummat ul-Habeeb salaatullah `alayh. As-salaamu `alaykum yaa taaifat ul-jinn min Ummati Muhammad (s). As-salaamu `alaykum yaa Sayyidee, yaa Sultanu 'l-Awliyaa, madadik! We are asking your holy support and we are intending to do something that is important and we are beginning by saying, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. Allah Allah, Allah Allah. So sweet sentence, so sweet words to say, bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah!
O People! Taste min al-aarin jilaan and say, bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem! Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem! Allahu akbar! Shukr, yaa Rabbee. Countless thanks to You, O our Lord! You granted us to say, bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. Allah Allah, Allah Allah.
O our Grandshaykh! Let us to say something that may be a reason of awakening for nations, yes. What is Allah Almighty saying, O Salafi `ulamas, hal min mudakkir, any reminder? Holy Qur'an is Endless Oceans in Endless Dominions of the Lord of Creation, hal min mudhakirin? Allah Almighty is ordering to recite Holy Qur'an and every time you are reciting, something must be granted to you, O Mankind!
We are beginning with bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem, alhamdulilahi rabbi 'l-`alameen, (Suratu 'l-Fatihah) and ending with mina 'l-jinnati wa 'l-nas. (Suratu 'l-Naas). Every time you are making a full reciting, khatam, a finishing, from beginning up to end you are reciting Holy Qur'an, every time you must look for something, you must reach something from veiled realities, and you can find it in the Holy Qur'an. Allahu akbar! And His holy book, also, that belongs to our Lord is akbar, through all holy books it is akbar. The greatest heavenly book is the Holy Qur'an. You may find in Holy Qur'an everything. Holy Qur'an is showing past times, perhaps reaching from pre-Eternal and reaching also to Eternal, Holy Qur'an. Because that Holy Qur'an is the holy words of the Lord of Creation.
O Salafi `ulamas! Do you know over the word "rabb" a higher word? You may say, "We can't know." We are saying in the English language "Lord." That is a holy name of Allah Almighty that belongs to our understanding levels. Therefore, every prophet just granted some holy name from holy names that are secret, hidden ones. Don't think that everything from heavens is open to people. There are seven heavens; why is it not 70, or 700, or 7000 levels? Why stopping at seven heavens? Sab`a samaawati wa araadi.
O `ulamas! We must not say for ourselves, "We are `ulamas," but it is more suitable to say we are taalib, learners, asking for more knowledge. Up to where? Allah Almighty is addressing to all Mankind, because He granted us something special in our being that only He knows its real position. That is ego. As much as you are giving, asking more. Therefore, common people in this world are never getting satisfied. If you are giving to him one palace, he is asking for a second one. If you are giving a country, he is asking for another one. If you are giving to Mankind a continent, he is asking for another continent. If you are giving this whole world, he is asking, "I like another." That is a big grant also from Allah Almighty to His deputies. And our position is to be deputies, the lowest level for us! And then we are asking more and more, هَلْ مِن مَّزِيدٍ hal min mazeed, "Is there more?"
Therefore, if Mankind is going to be able to put reins on their rides, nothing can stop them from asking more and more. But now we have been granted reins to know our limits, our matlab: the reins that catch us is death. Death is finally making our egos to stop, at least to come a little bit down, not to ask from something from maa siwaa, that means other than the Lord of Heavens, maa siwaa Huwa (whatever is other than He). Allah Almighty is granting such a position or such a talab, request, asking and running after maa siwaa. Beyond dominions of Allah, they are asking to reach, to reach, to reach, but holy Shari'at is reining them to know their limits. Allah Almighty is granting, but granting as a Sultan. That Sultan has Unlimited Dominions and giving slowly to Mankind, because they have been chosen to be deputies of the Lord of Heavens, and as such, they must have such a position or such a special being not to ask for more from maa siwaa. Not asking for dominions, but asking for the Lord of Dominions! Therefore, to be deputies is the highest level that may reach creatures. Angels are for Mankind, or for deputies as servants, all malakoot, angels world, angels dominions are for Mankind. Allah Almighty is not in need, haasha, impossible!
O all `ulamas from east, from west, from Muslims, from book-given `ulamas, you must try to reach to a level that in that level just going to appear such a dominion that you will say, "Ohhhh enough, enough, enough, enough," no more asking. As a river is running for what? To reach oceans. When reaching to its ocean it is saying, "Enough, enough, enough."
O People! Now we are like atoms. You know, O Salafi `ulamas, what the Lord of Heavens is saying? (Mawlana Shaykh stands.)
يَا أَيُّهَا الْإِنسَانُ إِنَّكَ كَادِحٌ إِلَى رَبِّكَ كَدْحًا فَمُلَاقِيهِ
Yaa ayyuhal insaanu innaka kaadihun ila rabbika kadhan fa mulaaqiyyah.
Verily, O Man, you are working toward your Lord a work which you will meet (in His presence). (84:6)
(Mawlana Shaykh sits.) That may give a khulaassah, summary for what we are saying now, that Mankind's reality or real being is asking to reach to their Lord's dominions and to disappear in Unity Oceans of the Lord of Heavens! Until you are reaching, you are in trouble. When you are reaching, you are going to be an ocean!
O Salafi `ulamas! You must understand and you must try to make people understand about themselves. And when you are making people to understand something for themselves, there going to appear the secret of halaal and haraam! Orders or forbidden things, because orders taking you to oceans of dominions, but forbidden things making you not to reach to oceans of dominions. And if you are not reaching oceans of dominions of the Lord of Heavens, going to disappear. Wal mootu, death coming heavenly order for those people and when they are taken away, their ways from real way to oceans taken out and finishing. And then they are finishing, it means it is impossible to come once again to what they have been granted. That is naaru 'l-hasra, hellfire. They will be regretting that they lost their chance.
O Salafi `ulamas! Teach people that their real aspect is their Lord's Dominion Oceans are always under divinely appearance. You are looking and seeing on those oceans, real waves, real levels of pleasure of real pleasement, and you will see real lightening on it, showing you the real being aspects of the Lord of Heavens! May Allah forgive us.
O People! We must try a little bit to leave to be servants of our egos. It is a big blame for a person to leave the sultan's service and to occupy himself by looking at his donkey. Now all people are donkeys' servants, leaving servanthood of their Lord. How is this world going to be in pleasure? How will be their future in endless Enlightened Dominions?
O People! Allah Almighty's dominion is full with servants giving their whole beings for their Lord's divinely service. Try! If you are asking to be in safety and in pleasure and to be enlightened ones here and Hereafter, come and ask what the Holy Qur'an is asking to teach to you.
O Salafi `ulamas! Please say to them. They are saying, "That shaykh is saying something that we are not understanding." No, you can understand, but your egos are saying, "We are not understanding." Your real being of heavenly appearance is understanding and going to be happy, only your egos are going to be unhappy. Leave your ego and come to your real being that you have been granted from the Lord of Heavens, from pre-Eternal up to Eternal. May Allah forgive us!
(34 minutes.) Enough, powerful coming, enough.
Because it is Sunday night, people they are playing. (Mawlana Shaykh imitates dancing) Mashaa-Allah. May Allah forgive us.
Hisham Effendi not calling? May open to Shaykh Hisham telephone!
(Mawlana Shaykh speaks to Hajjah Naziha on the phone. Shaykh Hisham is Washington. Mawlana says in Turkish, "I feel happy when Shaykh Hisham is calling after suhbah.")
