The Coming of Sayyidina Imam Mahdi (a)

and the Secret of Imam Hussayn (r)

Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

16 February 2011 Lefke, Cyprus

Man lam yakun lahu imaam fa imaamahu 'sh-Shaytan, "Who doesn't have a guide, his imaam is Shaytan.” Alhamdulillah, radiynaa kullu ’l-ummam, we are accepting of all nations. Laa nufarriqu bayna ahadin, "We make no distinction between any” (al-Baqara, 2:285). Kalaamullah, Allah’s Words.

Don’t make khilaaf, dispute among imaams. Don’t leave them to be unhappy from you. Make the imaam happy with you or else it is so difficult, all fitna. Shaytan is running here and there saying, “O let me go here. O there’s another one; let me go there. O and another one!” Now Shaytan is surprised; he’s left in amazement.

May Allah protect us from falling into the hands of an oppressor. Don’t be a zhaaliman, oppressor or mazhlooman, the oppressed. Soon inshaa-Allah the order will come down from Heavens, and as soon as He says, “Come out!” he will appear. Imam Mahdi (a) looks at the order coming from above. A command from Heavens given to him: “Come out! You’ve been dressed power on yourself; no one can touch you.” If anything touches him, like this (he’ll be taken away).

When he is making takbeer technology will be finished: ferries won’t be able to move and every machine that gives so much courage to people for that reason will be closed down. Their airplanes won’t fly, their tanks, artillery and rockets won’t move! Only swords, and nothing else. Teknolojinin kafasını kesecek tekbir, his takbeer will cut off the head of technology!

They are saying, for example, that Syria closed its sky so that no one can see or hear such things, finished. If technologists are using that very small power, when the time comes they won’t be able to do anything with all that they know, finished; only swords.

Imam Sayyidina Mahdi (a) will come with one firqa, division, all on horses. Saahib az-Zamaan making his horse like this (Mawlana Shaykh gesturing take-off), and that will be enough--no need for taka tuka taka tuka (horses running), it will fly, and behind him will be 12,000 chosen ones! If looking at them with such look, that person may fall down dead. Havârik, wonders! Everything that operates with technology will finish: technology will be under the feet of his horse! Allahu, Allahu Akbaru ‘l-Akbar.

Yaa Rabbee! We are asking to reach those holy days that no prophet was ever given such an authority. It should only be for Mahdi (a) to clean dunya and not leave anyone against Islam. Like take-off, then coming down; any place they land, they only make their horses fly up for one minute and come down in one minute. In black, they are shouting. If anyone hears them, they will say, “Thunder! The world is thundering but there aren’t any clouds! How?” They will make woojjj, woojjj, woojjj with their swords, lightning, and finished. A miraculous power will be granted for him to use, a power which Rasoolullah (s) never used; it is for Sayyidina Mahdi (a). Allah yaa Rabbee, tawbah yaa Rabbee, amaan yaa Rabbee. This is coming! This is coming!

وَخَابَ كُلُّ جَبَّارٍ عَنِي

wa khaaba kullu jabbarin `aneed

And disappointed, [therefore], was every obstinate tyrant. (Ibrahim, 14:15)

Everyone claiming that he is the first, or that he is the best or most powerful, his head will be thrown away! The fuqaraa, poor, and the du`afa, weak, will be with Mahdi (a). Jabaabira, tyrants, Allah Allah, Allah yudaafi`a, He will be defending the believers. If they aren’t believing, they will be taken away also. “Hajji, come. All of those people have passed away with their homes and castles. What shall we do?”

I am looking to see which one should be for Saahib az-Zamaan. Ooooh (Mawlana Shaykh in amazement)! In Germany there was this one tower, a castle which belonged to an emperor. Just like it, but he is not in need for that. He may leave his own things in it, but in a split second, that night he will make a castle. It will be a building for Saahib al-`Asr--a castle, not a palace. Castle! If all Mankind tries to make such a castle, they can’t do it. Allahu Akbar! And Mahdi, Saahib az-Zamaan, he will be on his horse bayna ‘l-samaa wa ‘l-`ard, between Heavens and Earth. He will move (upward in ascension), then he will stop, jump to the castle and rule!

But now people are not interested in such things. All of them are occupied for dunya, for themselves. And dunya is saying, “I am not with anyone. I am here but you are going. Don’t try to reach to me, no, but try to be from those people whom on the Last Day, will be called as ‘Paradise People,’ entering jannat al-`aliyya, fee jannat al-firdaws, the highest Heaven, in Jannat al-Firdaws.” Allah jalla jalaaluhu, jallat `azhamatuhu.

We are not patient people; we are asking everything to be quickly. We are weak ones. And astaghfirullah, those tyrants are making zhulm, oppression, laa hadd wa laa yanal zhulm min an-naas kazaa, with no limits, and not including oppression from the people as well. We are waiting for that one who can take the hands of believers, Muslims, Ummatu Muhammad (s); to take them away, to save them and to destroy everything from kufr!


Sayyidina Husayn (a) came there in the event of Karbala; the order came, “Stop! Leave what is happening now for Us!” He was there with the Holy Family (a), and a group of fadaaiyoon came sacrificing themselves. Then the soldiers of Yazid approached. I am saying, do you think Ibnu Nabee (s), the Son of Prophet (s), was to be slaughtered like a sacrificial ram? Seventy kings of jinn surrounded them ever ready, so the moment they were touched, the jinn immediately took him and replaced him with a duplicate. They slaughtered that one and people stood up!

O, Allah Almighty is trying His servants! Sayyidina Husayn (a) was taken to his Grandfather’s (s) maqaam. There are so many things that no one knows now. Why did the jinn come there? To make a show? Haasha!

وَلٰـكِنْ شُبِّهَ لَهُمْ

wa lakin shubbiha lahum

But [another] was made to resemble him them. (Surat an-Nisa, 4:157)

That is Holy Qur’an’s ayatul-kareemah. They were thinking they slaughtered (him) just as they thought they had caught Jesus Christ, putting him on the cross. That never happened! Wahid, “one” was dressed in his outer appearance as Sayyidina `Isa (a) and another one also looking like Sayyidina Husayn (r), so harm never touched them. Haasha! Haasha thumma kallaa!

But people must cry for Sayyidina Husayn (r). He is going to make intercession for everyone who is crying for him also. He is not asking to make divisions in the Ummah, no. There is one! Such secret events (took place) that Awliyaullah were also ready there. But no one is speaking. Now waqt, time is over.

Therefore, we can only speak one drop from an ocean, no more. Inshaa-Allah we hope everything we are doing is for Allah, not for dunya. Whoever is making any action without thinking, without knowing, they are going to be taken away. Ooooh, thousands and thousands of people writing for Karbala. But if they are looking from outside, they can’t look inside.

Inshaa-Allah you should be happy with Sayyidina al-Mahdi (a) and you must make du`a for a weak servant. For seventy years I am waiting, making myself ready to salute when he comes. For seventy years that I heard about him, my heart was filled with love and service to him!

For every century, some people have been granted that authority to meet him, alayhi’ s-salaam. `Alaa nabiyyina wa `alayhi ‘s-salaati wa ‘s-salaam. Alfu alf salaatu salaam `alaa habibillah wa nasli paaki rasool hazrati Husayn, radiy ’Allahu`anhu wa yarda `alayhi s-salaam. Yaa Rabbee! İj`alhum shufa`a lanaa yawma ’z-zihaam, to be a savior for us!
