Why the Islamic World is Suffering

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani

15 May 2011 Lefke, Cyprus

Discussion with Shaykh Hisham at Breakfast

(Translated from Turkish and Arabic)

(Mawlana Shaykh comments to Hajjah Naziha.) Also, in Beirut the amount of service your husband (Mawlana Shaykh Hisham) and his family have done for us, no one has done! May Allah give them salamaat, peace and safety, and be well pleased with them. May Allah bless his ancestors.



They expelled the khalifah! There is yet to come upon the Turks for kicking out the khalifah from their place of land which they rightfully took sword. Even to the extent of prohibiting a nursing child, they made so much zhulm, oppression. Neither Sham nor Baghdad accepted them. Then they went to Hijaaz, where the Sharif wanted acceptance of the khalifah, but they refused! It is for this reason that the whole Islamic world is now suffering: Egypt, Hijaaz, Yemen, Baghdad, and Sham are all suffering because they rejected the Ottomans, the khalifah, and cheated them by saying they will form a big Arab Empire.

Allah Almighty said:

وَلاَ تُؤْمِنُواْ إِلاَّ لِمَن تَبِعَ دِينَكُمْ

Wa la tu’minoo illa liman tabia` deenakum.

And do not trust except those who follow your religion. (Aali `Imraan, 3:73)

Allah Almighty said, “O Muslims! Do not trust those who are not of your religion, your madhab, your way.” You have left a Muslim, a great khalifah, rejected him, hence the reason for all these afflictions. Allah does not send something without cause.

Allah Almighty said:

وَمَا أَنَا بِظَلَّامٍ لِّلْعَبِيدِ

wamaana bithallamin li ‘l-`abeed.

And never will I be unjust to the servants. (Qaf, 50:29)

وَلَكِن كَانُوا أَنفُسَهُمْ يَظْلِمُونَ

wa laakin kaanoo anfusahum yazhlimoona.

But they were unjust to themselves. (Rum, 30:9)

Allah is saying, “Never do I oppress my servants, but they oppress themselves.” You strayed from the right path? Then finished; you fell into afflictions! Do you think someone who loses his way and falls off the cliff will remain the same?

Hajjah Naziha: He will be dashed to pieces.

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim: Everyone is in pieces now! But the khalifah will arrive, inshaa-Allah.

Mawlana Shaykh Hisham: From Selim, to Selim!

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim: Selim is the first one to take the khilafat from Egypt, last of the Abbasids, and he brought the amaanat to Istanbul. For the past 400 years, every 24 hours there was a qaari reciting Qur’an non-stop, completing it! It didn’t stop until these traitors came and put an end to it, these people in Turkey. Ill will befall them!

Mawlana Shaykh Hisham: (Reciting in Topkapi Palace) where Amaanat al-Muqaddas, the Sacred Relics are kept.

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim: Certainly, in the saray al-`ateeq, Topkapi Palace. From its majesty and grandeur, no one is able to come near them; even the Ottoman sultans used to stand at a distance when visiting. But this one, whose statue they raised and worship, said, “I will go and see.”

They said, “O, but our pasha! This is not an ordinary place to be taken lightly; no one can enter here.”

He said, “I can go!”

They said, “Okay, as you like.”

He took one step and in the second, the awliya slapped him right in the face, moving his mouth all the way to his ear! He began moaning, “Ooooh! Ooooh!” Neither his hand nor his feet were moving. They looked and said, “This is not something a doctor can fix. Then what are we to do with him, constantly moaning like this? Let’s have a holy person who understands these things come and find a solution.”

He said, “I don’t want a holy person!”

“Sir, there is one person; let’s call him so he can take a look.”

So they called that holy person, and as soon as he arrived he took out his shoe and smacked him in his face! Immediately his face straightened and they dragged him out of there. After this incident, do you think he would go there a second time? So that is his situation. May Allah give us good endings.

Since they denied and rejected the khalifah, the whole Islamic world has now fallen into fitna and all kind of sufferings. There is now one person left from his bloodline: Selim is taking shelter in Europe, as the Muslim world has also rejected him.

Tawbah yaa Rabbee, astaghfirullah! Tawbah yaa Rabbee, astaghfirullah! Amaan yaa Rabbee! Amaan yaa Rabbee! Amaan yaa Rabbee! Yaa faarija ‘l-hamm wa kaashifal gham, mujeeba da`wat al-mudtarri ajib da`watee yaa Rabbee! O our Lord! Bring over them an oppressor who is more oppressive than them! azhlam minhum, yaa Allah Anta ‘l-Qaadiru ‘l-Muqtadir w ’a`fuw `annaa.

Forgive us, yaa Rabbee! Forgive us, as we have no other way out. Send us a sultan who will destroy the sultanate of Shaytan. Now they are struggling to establish Shaytan’s kingdom on Earth; that is their show, but against them will come a saahib who will destroy it!


What to do? Now we too are on the border. He alone knows when our turn will come. May we also be honored with the coming of the sultan of End Times. Sayyidina `Isa (a) will come and rule for forty years, and seven years for Mahdi (a). After that no wali or no nabi will be on the Earth, and Allah will send the last great Signs of the Hour, and then the souls of every believer will be taken, leaving only unbelievers committing sins, and the Hour will rise upon them.
