The Power of Our Heavenly Greeting

Sultan al-Awliya

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

20 November 2009 Lefke, Cyprus

(Sultan stands.)

Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, la ilaaha illa-Llah, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, wa lillahi 'l-hamd! This is a holy month and takbeer gives us much more power, love, understanding and lights. Therefore, you may say as much as possible, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, la ilaaha illa-Llah, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, wa lillahi 'l-hamd!

We are giving our most high honor, praise and glory to our Lord's deputy from pre-Eternal up to Eternal, Sayyidina Muhammad (s). He was granted such glory and praising, no one can know it. Give more respect and salutes for the most honored one in the Divine Presence, Sayyidina Muhammad (s). (Sultan sits.)

We are asking now for a heavenly support for addressing you and all Mankind, from the east to the west. I am nothing but they may grant a person who may only say, "I am nothing." If anyone is saying, "I am something," he will never be granted or given or enlightened. Therefore, we must look to that one who is respected from the heavens and he is also a deputy of the heavens. This globe or this earth, is so, so small...Huuu... a creation. It is so small from our Lords' creations and the Lord has countless creations through countless dominions and countless oceans through dominions. It is impossible to know the beginning of our Lord's Creation. You may ask to give a description about our Lords' creatures but it is impossible to know the beginning or ending because everything that belongs to our Lord is unlimited. Everything that belongs to creatures is in limits. Even if oceans are granted to creatures, they are in limits. Unlimited Oceans belong to One Divine existence for which you can't find a beginning or an ending.

This world is going to be nothing but because we are creatures, in our sight, it is something. In the sight of heavenly beings it is nothing. Creation is like a river that is running but no one may see or know or understand from where it is coming or to where it is going. We are asking our master who is responsible for every happening on this planet, As-salaamu `alaykum, Ya man huwa mas'ool (the one responsible). We are only such an atom or less on this planet. The Creator knows the real purpose or reality of the planet coming into existence, because nothing is going to be without a meaning, or without a wisdom it can't be; everything must have some meaning. First of all, all creatures coming into existence must glorify their Creator, the Lord of Heavens. No one can be without glorifying and they must glorify!

That is coming in existence for every being on this planet or through this space. Space is not as empty as people are thinking. If empty, what does it mean? Empty, what is that? Something or nothing? If you say nothing, everything in it is nothing. If you say something, everything must be something. Everything must be for some reason or for some wisdom. It is just created for that purpose. Don't think that you are here now, ten or twenty people. All of us are (part of) Mankind, but the wisdom of your creation is not same as His Creation and wisdom for coming into existence. He is Allah, jalla jalaaluhu. SubhanAllah, Sultaan Allah. SubhaanAllah, Sultaan Allah. Endless glory and majesty and might for You, O our Lord.

Everything is making glorification and each one's glorifying is different from another. For example, water is from two atoms of hydrogen and one atom of oxygen. That is one atom, that is another atom; two atoms. Why are they not coming to be one? What is the reason? Hydrogen atoms, why they are not coming together as atoms? One is hydrogen and another is hydrogen, so why not coming to be a mass? Because you, Mankind, you are a man, and that is another man, but you are representing the Lord of Heavens, from His endless Power Oceans, representing one and that one, another. Therefore, atoms are same but their wisdoms are different. If same, they must come to everything and you should see a big gigantic being and you may ask, "What is this?" It is hydrogen, but not in such a way for all to be one. The Creator created every atom to be a witness for it's Lord. Your glorifying is different from that one's glorifying; even hydrogen, but their glorifying is just different.

O People! As-salaamu `alaykum. Give your minds for understanding. I am not a person that is speaking from my mindly production. Something, some grants from heavens making me to address you, to tell you, "Beware, don't run away! Beware not to be a person who is not thinking!" When the Day of Resurrection comes, people come in the Divine Presence, and Allah Almighty will order the angels to ask everyone from Mankind the first question:

"What did you learn?"

"Eh, I learned to drive cars..."

Hmm...once again.

"Yes sir, I learned to keep dogs."

"Hah, dogs? Which kind of dogs?"

"O my Lord's angels, they were a kind of dog people we were calling 'Churchill'."


"Yes, this one?"

That is not what the Lord of Heavens is going to ask His servants. The angels will question, "What did you learn? How many years you lived?"

"Eighty years."

"How long you lived?"

"Forty years."

"What did you learn?"

Don't say that I learned only to eat and to drink and to run after my hobby for this life. They will ask you, "What did you learn?" Are you never thinking who you are, how you are you, or what is your identity? Don't say 'my identity was a donkey or a dog or a horse.' No! They will ask you, "Who are you? What is your identity?"

O People! Now in all countries there are thousands of schools, universities, academies and more. I never heard them teaching students and asking them, "Who are you?" Anyone knowing a doctor or a professor asking such a question to his students now. And I never heard that if that student is not answering, then that professor may say his identity: "O student, O guy, O young one, do you know who are you?" No answer. How are these people living through the 21st century. Never taking any interest to teach students, "O our students, you have been created as deputies of the Lord of Heavens and that is your identity." If you are asking a donkey, "Who are you?" the donkey may say, "I am a donkey," as he knows he is a donkey. If you are asking a man, "Who are you?" he may say, "I am a man." But, I am asking, "What is your identity and for what purpose are you in existence? Who is bringing you into existence? What is He saying about you? No, why are you not learning?"

O Professors, Learned Ones! Why you are not teaching that Mankind on this planet was created only to be the successors of prophets and the servants of the Lord of Heavens? Why are you not teaching this everywhere? You are teaching "Darwin-Marwin". What is that foolishness? Say it! If you are not, you are carrying a big responsibility because you are claiming you know everything; because you are researchers. Why not make research on Mankind? You are even making research on the pig flu and trying to understand its identity. The whole world is running after that virus to know its identity. From where is it coming, what is that one or who is that one. Why are you not asking billions of people what their identity is?

But people, even religious ones are drunk in our days. They may be Christian, Muslim, Jewish or Buddhist but they are drunk ones. They are not researching on Who it is bringing them into existence. Why are they not making research on this, but instead are running after a virus to know where it is coming from, or how it is coming into existence. What is it's purpose? How it is going to be pig flu? And before that, they were saying there was chicken flu. What is the difference between this virus and that virus? They are trying to know something, but never reaching to know something about the virus. Leave that and look after yourself. Who are you? Who is giving you your identity? Who is giving to you that appearance and being? Who is that One? Why they are not making a research on it? They are making research on everything except themselves because Shaytan is never giving permission. "Don't look at yourself, don't ask about your identity, but try to know who is around yourself." What is that?

O People! As-salaamu `alaykum once again. This salaam protects you here and Hereafter because salaam is from the Lord of Heavens. One Holy Name of our Creator is "as-Salaam." When you are saying as-salaamu `alaykum and another one is saying wa ` alaykum salaam, no virus can touch you. That is an armor granted from the heavens to all of Mankind. Say as-salaamu `alaykum and you should be in safety, protected and sheltered from everything around yourself. That salaam makes for you a fort here, and after you are passing from this life you should be in it on safety. No need to make this vaccination! I am sorry that Muslims are believing and fearing from a virus, and running to take vaccinations. For what, O our learned people? How you are knowing your Lord? Why Allah Almighty ordered people, as-salaam qabl al-kalaam (say salaam before speaking)? You must say as-salaamu `alaykum for safety on you here and Hereafter.

Why are they? "Because, O Shaykh, their doctors are not understanding such things." I am asking, what they are fearing may come on their heads and take them away! As-salaamu `alaykum! It is one of the biggest grants from the Lord to believers. When you are saying as-salaamu `alaykum a divine protection is coming on you. Say it, O my Listeners, Muslims. You are Muslims! Use it! Believe and do! You should be in safety. That is the meaning. Not to say good morning, bonjour, binsoui, guneydin, tunaydin, no! They never protecting you but when you are saying as-salaamu `alaykum, it gives you full protection here and Hereafter.

Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar. It is such a big grant from Allah Almighty to ourselves to say as-salaamu `alaykum. It takes away every heaviness, badness or harm when you are saying as-salaamu `alaykum. Wa `alaykum as-salaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh.

Allah Allah, Allah Allah.

This is the second period of ignorance. Once before when the Seal of Prophets, Sayyidina Muhammad (s), came, people were through darkness of ignorance and now once again another period of ignorance is coming. Everywhere there are hundreds and thousands of schools, high schools, universities, academies and more but people are ignorant because they are not teaching their Lord's identity, or their Lord's Divine attributes. That must be first. I am swearing at those people who are saying, "We are Muslims." Allah granted them power and they are not teaching Muslim children about their Creator. I am nothing. I am not asking anything from you. O sultans, kings, and emperors, I am not asking. It is enough for me, my Lord's heavenly support on this planet and your ignorance under my feet and also Shaytan's sultanate under my feet! Say! Don't fear! May Allah forgive us.

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

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, SubhaanAllah

Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Sultaan Allah

O People! Try to learn, because we are here today and tomorrow we will be taken to an unknown territory. We are on this planet now. We are knowing something but tomorrow you must know that you are going to be taken to Unknown Territories. Try to do something and understand how you should be. A welcome tomorrow, welcoming you with good wishings, grants of the Lord. Or some angels carrying you away to a darkness, dark worlds, to Unknown Territories and you never coming back to see lights. You lose lights in this world now, and when you are closing your eyes, never opening and seeing a light or lightening.

Tawbah yae Rabbee. Forgive us, O our Lord! And bless ourselves for the honor of the most honored one through Your Divine Presence, Sayyidina Muhammad (s).

(45 minutes)

Tamaam! Alhamdulillah yaa Rabbee, shukr yaa Rabbee, shukr.

(Mawlana performs shukr sajdah.)
