Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

27 April 2010 Lefke, Cyprus

Madad, yaa Sultanu 'l-Awliya. (Mawlana Shaykh stands) La ilaaha illa-Llah. La ilaaha illa-Llah. La ilaaha illa-Llah Muhammadun Rasoolullah, `alayhi salaatullah from pre-Eternal up to Eternal. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

Madad, yaa Rijaalallah. I am Your weak servant. O my Lord! And we are saying, a`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani ‘r-rajeem. Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmaani ‘r-Raheem. That gives us honor and it is His stamp, stamp of the king, His seal. We are weak servants. O our Lord, support Your weak servants. You have Endless Dominions. You have Endless Oceans in each dominion. You are the Lord of Creation!!! We are nothing, but You granted us such an honor, and You said, O our Lord: (Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

وَإِذْ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلْمَلاَئِكَةِ إِنِّي جَاعِلٌ فِي الأَرْضِ خَلِيفَةً

Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmaani ‘r-Raheem. Wa idha qaala rabbuka lil-malaa`ikati innee ja`eelun fi'l-`ardi khalifah.

And when your Lord said to the angels, "Verily I am making in the Earth a deputy.” (al-Baqarah, 2:30)

Allah! Allah! (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

O our listeners in the east and west! O our attenders! As-salaamu `alaykum! That heavenly salute is reaching to servants and bringing to them heavenly blessings. Therefore, it is something urged by the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s) (Mawlana Shaykh stands), to say, "As-salaamu `alaykum." (Mawlana Shaykh sits.) Madad, O our guide who is responsible for everything happening on this planet. O People! Send to that one your salutes, "As-salaamu `alaykum, yaa Saahibu 'l-Imdaad," director of everything on this planet, everywhere. Because if heavenly support and heavenly blessings do not reach someone, it is impossible to be in existence. this is an important point.

O Muslim `ulamas from Ahlu’l-Sunnah, Ahlu' l-Shi`a, and Salafi `ulamas! It is such an important point. Everything in existence, without looking at their greatness or smallness, can't be in existence, so that everything on this planet, from biggest one to smallest one, must reach direct support from heavens, to reach that one, then it is going to appear in existence. We may say the whole world is in need of its greatness, taking its share, but on it and in it countless beings are just taking its saf, ranks, and tarteeb, orders. For example, here we are sitting and everyone has a special place and a measure on it. Do you think the smallest thing is an atom? Do you think atoms are choosing their private stations by themselves, or is Some One putting one after one after one? The Lord of Heavens is al-`azhamatu lillah, Glorious Greatness is for Allah Almighty!!

O People living in the 21st century! You don't think you must try to know heavenly knowledge from heavenly books. You say, "Just we find elements." Yes. You must think because Allah Almighty is saying, لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ la`alahum yatafakkaroon, "That perchance they may reflect." (al-`Araaf, 7:176) Allah Almighty is asking this from chosen creatures who have been honored to be deputies of the Lord of Heavens. Where are the deputies? You must think on it. Who has been chosen to be Allah Almighty's deputies?

O `Ulamas! Do you think we have been supported with such a knowledge that belongs to heavens to wake up all people? an-naasu niyaam, people have been sleeping! "Sleeping" means that they have been closing their eyes to see and look at reality. And beyond that reality are countless realities and they are saying, "We have reached the top point of knowledge.” And Allah Almighty is sending them to see things they have never been thinking on. People are drunk, but the Lord of Heavens is now sending heavenly bombardings on their mindly productions.

O People! It is enough to be drunk; don't also be heedless! Wake up and look beyond that limit, where there are unlimited horizons! You have reached only a material horizon and you are getting so proud, claiming that, “We are reaching the top point.” You may be reaching the top point of a material horizon, but from where is that material horizon coming? Don't say, "From the Big Bang." That is foolishness, (an invention of) no-mind people, such a nonsense claim, because Shaytan is their teacher, saying, “When people think about the beginning and ending of this world, we must fill their attention and occupy their minds with something useless (to confuse them)." And people are now saying, "We have reached the top point of civilization and technologia." What are they thinking? Only two-hundred years ago no one knew about technology coming in existence. You can say, “This is the horizon of technology, and its next horizon can't be beyond that.”

Shaytan is teaching them, “Use these useless theories that the mind is never accepting, put there to occupy peoples' minds endlessly." They use theories, which is not reality!!! But the real aim is to occupy people on that theory, the Big Bang, that it was only one atom exploding, and in one-billionth of a second coming this and going that. And now, everywhere, I am sorry to say that our Muslim countries are also putting this in their books and teaching it as a real knowledge. It is a nonsense theory that this huge universe is coming from one atom! What is that foolishness? They are putting in their (curricula) and teaching to youngsters, making them believe that, and not teaching them to believe that this whole huge universe is coming from the Lord of Heavens!!! I am sorry, but on them is coming cursing from Unseen Territories, because they left the True Way and diverted on wrong ways.

The Lord of Heavens said, (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) inna hadha siraat al-mustaqeema, "This is My Straight Path.” (Mawlana Shakyh sits.)

O `ulamas, why are you not saying, inna hadha siraat al-mustaqeema? I am asking `ulamas, Salafi `ulamas, and Shi`a `ulamas, what is that siraat; from where it comes and to where it goes? Do you know? If you know, why are you not teaching people? وَأَنَّ هَـذَا صِرَاطِي مُسْتَقِيمًا inna hadha siraatee mustaqeema, Verily, this is My way, leading straight: (6:153) Allah Almighty is saying, "This is My Straight Way, siraatee, My Way. Who is asking to reach to Me--to know, to learn, to be, to understand--this is the Way." Laa `iwaja lah, "No crookedness is found in it," also ayat ul-kareemah, yes, you know but you are not using. What is mustaqeema and what is crooked way? Why are you not saying? Why are you following western philosophers' ideas and leaving holy books that are trying to teach you about your beginning and ending and about yourself? Why are you not teaching? You only know to swear on someone like me, who is nothing? Because sometimes they are making me to shout on you and your egos are getting so angry! Don't get angry, because then heavenly lightenings are coming on your heads, then you are finished, disappeared! Is that a solution for every problem for people living in the 21st century? You know only to swear, “That one is nothing.” You are getting angry and unrest from such words, and muta`aajib, you are astonishing from what I am bringing. I am not bringing; they are sending, and I am only the weakest servant!

Why are you getting angry? No, I am only bringing an answer. If you know it is true, you are accepting. Prophet Muhammad (s) is saying, (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) انما العلم بالتعلم innama 'l-`ilmu bi't-ta`allum, "Verily knowledge is by learning.” (Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

Yes, is it true or not? Ta`allum is knowledge going to be learned by a teacher. If there is no teacher, no one is learning anything. Prophet (s) says, innama 'l-`ilmu bi ta`allum, knowledge that belongs to heavenly stations, that is the siraat, the Way to heavens. Why are you not using it? Why are you not giving a meaning about that knowledge? Why are you not asking about that knowledge? Why are you having such envy? And Allah Almighty is saying, "(The value of) dunya is less than the wing of a mosquito."

O People! Wake up! Don't be enemies with such a person that is never claiming anything for himself, only asking to be accepted as a servant of the Lord of Heavens, Allah Almighty! (Mawlana Shaykh stands.)

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah `Azeez Allah.

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah Subhaan Allah.

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah Sultaan Allah.

(Mawlana Shaykh sits.)

O Muslim governments! You are only happy to teach your youngsters the national anthem. I am also saying to all kings, queens, sultans, they are only teaching the national anthem. You are so careful (about that), and some countries now have a law that if their national anthem is playing and someone remains sitting and not standing up, they take him to prison. But when adhaan al-Muhammadi (s) (the Islamic call to prayer) is heard, they are never taking any care! Why all presidents, majesties, kings, soldiers, or civilians are not taking care when the heavenly anthem is playing? Do you think that Allah Almighty and all angels are not looking at you? And so when adhaan al-Muhammadi (s) is playing, (Mawlana Shaykh stands) people must stand up, even if it is called five times or fifty times a day! (Mawlana Shaykh sits.) That is Islamic good manners! You must keep it! Even kings or queens, when adhaan al-Muhammadi is called five times, make a trumpet so people know adhaan al-Muhammadi is calling now. (Mawlana Shaykh stands and sits.)

May Allah forgive us! We are such wrong people and useless servants! Allah Almighty grants us countless favors and we are not taking any care to give at least an honor to azaan al-Muhammadi (s). (Mawlana Shaykh stands.) Stand up! Even if for one moment, it is enough. (Mawlana Shaykh sits.) You make your Lord happy with you and He grants you a dress of honor, He dresses on you heavenly lights, saying, "My servant is giving his full respect for My Holy Name!"

O our Lord, forgive us! We are sinners, we are sinners! Send us someone to teach us the way of heavens. May Allah (swt) forgive us. Tawbah yaa Rabbee! Tawbah yaa Rabbee! Tawbah yaa Rabbee!

Dome dome dome dome, Dome dome dome dome

We are only asking for the heavenly lights of our Lord, to make You happy with us. That is our real aim, that You, Allah Almighty, are pleased with us.

O People! Try to make Allah (swt) pleased with you! May Allah forgive me and you.
