You cut the Dhikr to an extent that you have to. Don't keep going, going, going; because we are Ummatun wasata - the Nation on the Middle Way. If there is someone that is sick or has an urgent matter to attend to, then don't make the Dhikr long, cut it short. Because if you continue like today, some people are sick, some people need medicine, so you have to be careful.
If someone has a guest in his house the importance is to give care to someone who is the guest. If someone important is visiting your house or a sick person, it is a must to stop and to follow the way of the Prophet (s)...This makes the guest happy and you will be happy. But when you continue doing what you are doing of salawat or anything you do, you have to cut it [to oblige the guest or sick person],
If you are going to extend it, the angels will cut it for you.
There are three things you have to ask your murshid about:
First is to ask if there is permission to travel.
Second if you want to buy a house ask your murshid about it.
Third is if you want to marry - one - you ask permission.
They are happy?
[Sahib: yes, both ways].
What do you mean both ways?
[Sahib: men are happy women are happy]
So at least these things are important in your life to ask permission.
Awliyaullah they look at these things and they expand it.Because we don't know as they know. They know 100 times better than us.If someone wants to know more, behave well. A principle of Tariqah is to behave. No fights.
Everything has to be based on a principle. May Allah teach us adab. Adab will take you to Paradise.
Especially when you don't ask and you don't fight. Unfortunately people like to fight. If they don't fight their days are not good. And I am looking at you, so behave well.
So they gave me permission to correct the problems and the mistakes of the mureeds.I did not ask for it, they asked for me. When you reach that level be happy and go to your murshid, and this is what I saw, I want to be happy.
Dreams are not everything to say, "I saw this, I saw that." If you see it is for you, and if you did not see it is against you.
I saw the Prophet (s) in a dream, and he was standing waiting for me, as soon as I arrived I looked and it was a nafaq, a tunnel, it is not waiting for me, we have to wait for him (s).I was on one end of the tunnel and there was someone on the other side of the tunnel dressed in white clothes. It is well known to Awliya who is that person. I asked someone to explain it to you and it is on Sufilive.

Every moment in dunya if you think you have an electronic instrument you are using they have better than you. Dunya is under their feet and they taught us that, especially someone who loves Mawlana Shaykh Nazim. Because the blessings they have for everyone is there. These people can see and use it. Qutb, Qutb al-Bilad, Qutb al-Irshad, Qutb al-Mutassarif, they can use this. Can you use that? If you cannot use it then say you cannot use it and that means you are not yet ripe.
So Awliyaullah they know about these things and they use it and I tell you what it is. You want to hear?
It is the order that Allah swt gave to the Prophet (s) to salli `alaa an-Nabi (s), to praise the Prophet (s). Praise of the Prophet (s), salawaat is the highest `ibadah. And all of you I am seeing you are carrying beads and making salawaat on the Prophet (s). Be happy! Yes!

Lo! those who swear allegiance unto thee (Muhammad), swear allegiance only unto Allah. The Hand of Allah is above their hands. So whosoever breaks his oath, breaks it only to his soul’s hurt; while whosoever keeps his covenant with Allah, on him will He bestow immense reward. (Surat al-Fath, 48:10)
Radeenaa billaahi rabban, wa bi 'l-Islami deenan, wa bi Sayyidina wa Nabiyyina Muhammadun sall-Allahu `alayhi wa sallama Rasoolan wa Nabiyyan wa bi 'l-Qurani kitaaban w’Allahu `ala maa naqoolu wakeel.
Allahu Allahu Allahu Haqq Allahu Allahu Allahu Haqq Allahu Allahu Allahu Haqq.
They do not want to open these secrets yet, if they open my tongue it will be producing a lot of wisdom. They don't want that now. We struggled but there is no answer. Say alhamdulillah wa 'sh-shukru lillah wa laa ilaha ill 'Llah wa 'Llahu akbar wa lillahi 'l-hamd, wa 's-salaamu `alaa mani ' t-taba` al-huda.
Insha-Allah kulluna natabi` al-huda, insha-Allah we all follow the guidance.
