The First Ten Days of Zulhijjah

This year, Zulhijjah begins on the 16th or 17th October 2012. The Prophet (saw) said: “There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days. One fast during these ten days is equal to the fasting of one complete year, and the worship of one night during this period is equal to the worship in the “Lailatul-Qadr”. (Tirmizi). Let us learn more about these blessed 10 days! Continue reading

Maulana’s response to “Innocence of Muslims”

In the light of the violent protests worldwide against the film ‘Innocence of Muslims’, Maulana speaks about where we have gone wrong by such barbaric behaviour. Not only have we portrayed Islam in the worst possible light – as a merciless beast, – we have also spread the filth of one shaytan’s act, from East to West. Worst of all, we have opened the Door to the harshest claim a Muslim can ever face on Judgement Day, upon ourselves by violating the rights of unbelievers – indeed, such a claim will take away the most precious jewel from your heart, leaving you in abject despair in the Court of Allah. Every Muslim must read this Suhbah! Continue reading

Entering time of Sayyidina al-Mahdi (as) – the vital importance of Green!

Maulana says that we have entered the time of Sayyidina al-Mahdi (as), and the following are commands that are of great importance, for those who are aware of the great dangers which are approaching, as well as for those seeking the never-seen-before Divine Power Openings, that are gradually being revealed to believers. Just last month, Maulana spoke of the power unleashed by a single recitation of Surah al-Ikhlas and of Surah al-Fatihah.

Now, the command for Muslims is to distinguish themselves from non-Muslims, so as to be under Divine Protection, and the Door to that Protection, is given in these two Suhbahs summarised below. Maulana spoke of the beauty, importance and protection brought about by wearing and using green items, about why we should avoid red, the importance of keeping ladies apart from men, the dangers of staying in big cities, and an opening for the oppressed ones to use Divine Power of takbir for their protection. Continue reading

İnci için Okyanusa dalın: 13 Ekim 2010

Peygamberlerin Mühürlerinin Sahabeleri, Peygambersel incileri almak için seçilmişlerdir. Bizlerin de bildiği gibi, onlar İslam’ın kuruluşunda oldukça ağır bir sorumluluk taşıdılar. Bizler de onları izleyenleri izlemeliyiz ve gereken saygı ve minnette onlarla uyum içinde olmalıyız. Onlar hakkında, asla, kötü konuşmamalıyız –onlar seçilmiş olanlardır! Continue reading

Yükselmenin tek yolu başın Öne Eğilmesidir

Zayıf kullar olarak yaratılmamıza rağmen, İnsan teknolojisi, bilgisi, orduları ve sahip olduğu kaynakları nedeniyle, kendisinin güçlü olduğuna inanır. Şeytan, devamlı olarak, İnsanı kendi lanetlenmiş ayak izlerini takip etmeye teşvik eder ki bunlar; üstün olduğunu iddia etme ve tıpkı şeytanın Âdem’e (AS) yaptığı gibi, başkalarına yukarıdan bakmaktır. Diğer taraftan Tarikat İnsana tam tersini öğretir –tıpkı Meryem’in (AS) Kuran’da dua ettiği gibi, isimsiz, unutulmuş ve alçak gönüllü biri olmayı. Mevlana’nın sözleriyle, “Tarikat Hiç olmayı kabul etmeniz için eğitir.” Çok üzücüdür ki bugün, hatta Tarikat içinde bile, yolculuklarında bu nihai hedefi unutmuş olanlar var ve onların birçoğu yukarıdan bakıp diğer Müslümanları büyük bir kindarlıkla, kınıyorlar. Aynı yolda yolculuk eden kendi arayış içerisindeki arkadaşlarına karşı kendilerini üstün görüyorlar ve birçok müridin başka müritlerle araları bozuk. Bu Şeyhlikteki hastalığı körüklüyor –herkes Şeyh olmak istiyor, herkes fark edilmek istiyor, herkes göz önünde olmak istiyor- ama hiç kimse alçak gönüllü müritler, bilinmeyen kullar ya da unutulmuş takipçiler olmak istemiyor. Evliyalığa yolculuk daha sonradır ama bugün çok az kişi bu yola ayak basmıştır. Continue reading

Habib Ali El-Cufri için Özel Suhbah: 23 Kasım 2010

Bu çok özel Suhbah’ da Mevlana, her zaman Allah ile birlikte olmak gerektiği ve Yüce Şeyh EbuYezid El Bistami (ks)’ nin Hesap Günü’ nde İlahi’ nin adını çağırmasını nasıl bir arzuyla beklediği üzerine konuştu. Merhametle kaplanmış, Muhammed milletinin bir ferdi olarak, hayvana özgü sıfatları bırakarak Allah’ a en yakın olanlardan olmaya gayret etmeliyiz. Hayvan özelliklerinden kurtulamayanlar ‘durağan’ cennetlere gideceklerdir. Sadece arınmış olanlar, melek sıfatlarını edinmiş olanlar, İlahi Mevcudiyet’ te kabul göreceklerdir. Hayvanlar, durağan cennetlerde kalırken, arınmış olanlar Saray’ a, Kral’ ın huzuruna kabul edilecektir. Resulullah (sav) buyurdular ki “Ben mükemmel ahlak üzere gönderildim. Beni Allah en güzel bir usul ile terbiye etti.” Continue reading

Evliyalar Kış boyunca gizlidedirler: 24 Ekim 2010

Bizler şimdi, İslam Ağacının çıplak, yapraksız ve meyvesiz olarak geçirdiği, Kış aylarının sonundayız. Tattan yoksun bir yolculukla yüz yüze gelen insanlar, kendilerini bu dünyevi hazların bataklığında boğmak için akın ettiler. Şeytani ‘rehberler’ aracılığıyla yönlendirilen birçok genç nesil, yönlendirme ve dindarlık için bağışıklık kazanıncaya kadar aşılanmışlardır. Fakat kış ayları sona geldiği için, vaat edilen İlkbaharın gelişi de açıktır ve her kim İslam Ağacının köklerini sökmek için çalışanlar, yok olduğunu düşündükleri ağacın yeniden canlandığını gördüklerine hayretler içinde kalırlar. O Ağacı Kimin diktiğini unuttular mı? Continue reading

Bir tek hadis tüm bilgiyi içerir: 29 Ekim 2010

Bazı insanlar ülkelerinin deprem hattının dışında olmasından ya da kasırgaların oluştuğu bölgelerde olmamasından veya tsunami tehlike bölgesinde olmamasından teselli buluyorlar. Afetler Allah tarafından gönderilir. Onlar ‘doğaya’ atfedilebilecek sıradan olaylar değildir! Mevlana diyor ki, her felaket, İlahi emirler aracılığıyla mağdurlarına açıklanan, göklerden gelen kesin bir cezadır. Öyleyse potansiyel felaket bölgelerinden uzak olmanız nedeniyle, hiç de, rahatlamayın. Tayfunların ve kasırgaların gelişi, depremler, toprak kaymaları, tsunamiler, su baskınları, siyasi huzursuzluklar, ölümcül hastalıklar ve evlilik çekişmeleri, Allah’ın Öfkesinin yoğun bir şekilde İnsana doğru gelmesini işaretleridir. Hayatındaki birçok belirsizlikle, İnsan bugün sürekli bir korku içerisindedir. Bu çılgınlığın ortasında, insan nasıl huzur ve güvenlik bulabilir? Continue reading

Hz. Yusuf neden öne çıktı?: 10 Kasım 2010

“Her iş, o görev için uygun olan birine emanet edilmelidir. Bir pozisyon/konum/portföy/iş o işi yapması için uzman olmayan (kalifiye olmayan) birine verilirse, bu Kıyametin yakın olduğunun işaretidir” Kalifiye olmayan bir doktorun sizi ameliyat etmesine izin verir miydiniz? Onun müdahalesi sorununuzu çözmeyecek, aksine, böylesine yeteneksiz cerrah hastalığınıza yeni bir şeyler ilave edeceği gibi ölümünüze de neden olabilecektir. Bugünün dünyasında yetenek ve liyakat sahibi insanlar, sıklıkla, hak ettikleri mevkileri alamazlar. Bunun yerine, niteliksiz ve vicdansız olanlar, açgözlü hükümet ve yönetim mevkileri için yarışıyorlar. Zirveye giden yollarında, rüşvet veriyorlar, kampanyalar yapıyorlar, vaatler veriyorlar ve lobi faaliyetleri yapıyorlar. Her birimize, yapmak için programlandığımız, İlahi olarak verilmiş görevler vardır. Hz. Yusuf (AS), İlahi yardım almış olduğu için yapabileceği işler olan, zihin yeteneği gerektiren bir iş yapıyordu.

Tohumları nereye ektiğinize dikkat edin: 12 Kasım 2010

Gerçek bilgi sadece Kuran’dan gelir. Allah’ın varlığını inkâr etme öğretilerinin yaygınlaşması, İnsanı inançsızlığın dipsiz kuyularına iter. Bir kere bu inançsızlık tohum saldığında, büyüyen çocuk kendi arzularını tatmin etmeyi arayan biri olarak yetişeceği için, çocuklarımızın ne öğrendikleri konusunda dikkatli olmalıyız. Zevk aramanın sarhoşluğuyla, Allah’ın İnsan için ihsan etmeyi dilediği gerçek onurun peşinden koşmayı, Her Şeye Gücü Yeten Allah’a ibadet etmeyi terk edecek, Kulluğa da sırtını dönecektir ve bu dünyadaki kısa ömrünün amacını asla anlamayacaktır.

Bir Sarayda yaşamak: 4 Aralık 2010

Bu Sohbette, Mevlana şeytanın sonu gelmez fısıltılarının tehlikesinden ve şeytanın sürekli yüreklerimize dünyaya sahip olmak için özlemle çalışıp, istemeleri için nasıl tohumlar ektiğini ama dünyanın çabucak geçen bir hoşnutluktan başka bir şey olmadığını açıkladı. Böyle yaparak, İnsan lanetlenmiş düşmanının tavsiyelerini aldı ve bu geçici dünyasal haz için sonsuz ahretini reddetti. Birçok Kral muhteşem sarayları işgal ediyorlar ancak tüm bu Krallar şimdi neredeler? Ölüm bizlerin olağan kaderidir ve ölümde de bu dünyadaki her şeyi arkamızda bırakacağız. Continue reading

Kaşlarınızı çatmayın: 13 Aralık 2010

Sadece bir zorba Resulullah’a (SAV) saygısızlık eder. Allah’ın Kendisi Resulullah’ı (SAV) bir kaidenin üzerine yerleştirmiştir. Öyleyse biz kimiz ki ona saygısızlık edelim? Resulullah’a (SAV) olan sevgimizi artırarak imanda, nurda ve Makamda yükseliriz. İlahi emirlere karşı gelen kişi bir zorbadır. Kendi nefislerimizin zorbalarına karşı savaşmak ve eksikliklerimize karşı gözlerimizi açmak için de emir aldık. Zorbalar, sürekli olarak, Yaratıcılarının İradesinden hoşnutsuzdurlar ve Ahbaplarının yaptıklarından da mutsuzdurlar. Yani yüzleri sürekli olarak hoşnutsuzluğu yansıtır ve içlerindeki kötülük de bakışlarına çirkin bir bakış olarak yansır. Mevlana, sürekli gülümseyin ve başkalarına kaşlarınızı çatmayın der.

Hastalar sabırlı olmalıdır: 13 Kasım 2010

Mevlana, etkisini görmemiz uzun zaman alsa bile, doğal tedavilerin yan etkileri olmadığı için, bizlere doğal tedavi yöntemleri aramamızı salık veriyor. Tıpkı hastalıkların gelişmesinin zaman alması gibi, tedavi edilmesi de zaman almalıdır. Yani hap almak ve çabucak iğne yaptırmak gibi hızlı tedavi yöntemleri aramak yerine, sabırlı olmalıyız. Bitkilerin farklı kısımları, farklı rahatsızlıklara çare olur –kabukları, kökleri, gövdeleri, yaprakları, tomurcukları, tohumları, çiçekleri ve meyveleri- hepsi de farklı özelliklere sahiptir. Ve bunlar; kurutulmuş, kaynatılmış, suyu çıkartılmış olarak ya da basitçe ham haliyle alınabilir. Onların içlerindeki iyilikleri çıkartmak için birçok farklı yol vardır. Doğal tedaviye bir örnek de çörek otudur. Resulullah (SAV) diyor ki; “Bu çörek otunun içinde [çörek otu tohumları] ölüm hariç, her hastalığa şifa vardır.” Continue reading

Yüksek Eğitim her zaman sizleri daha yükseğe götürmez

Mevlana daha yüksek eğitimin peşinden yıllarını harcayan insanların çetrefilli konularına değiniyor. Müslümanların, bedenen yapılan işler, daha az cazip işler olsa bile, talep gören işlerin peşinden koşmaları gerektiğini açıklıyor. İslamın onuru helal rızık peşinde koşmayı gerektirir. Bir avukat olmak, bir su tesisatçısı olmakla kıyaslandığında, daha fazla onur getirmez. Ancak insanlar bugünlerde bu tür elle yapılan işlerden, gurur ve cehalet nedeniyle, uzak duruyorlar ve kaçıyorlar. İşsiz bir mezun olmanın ana fikri nedir? Öyle ki, bugün Üniversitelerde öğretilenler toplum için bir kazanç sağlamıyor ya da ilgisizdir. Mevlana bu tür bilginin mezunları için üç öneri sunuyor. Continue reading

Haçlılar Kudüs’ü fethetmeyi neden başaramadı?

Bu Sohbet, her müminin eylemlerine eşlik etmesi gereken temel ilkeyi açıklar. Samimiyet. Yağmayla birlikte, müminleri öldürmek, talan etmek ve Kudüs’ün Kutsal Mekânlarına karşı hakaret etmek, işte bunlar haçlı Seferlerinin çarpık niyetleriydi ki Allah da onları başarısızlık ve rezillikle cezalandırdı. Müslüman yöneticilerin adalet ve merhametleri nedeniyle, Yahudi ve Hıristiyanlar İslami yönetimler altında, her zaman, korunmuşlardır. Toplulukları gelişmiş, itibar ve haklar elde etmişlerdir. Müslümanlar onların yönetimleri altında olduğunda ise aynı şeyi söyleyemeyiz. Geçmiş Müslüman toplumlar üzerine uygulanan zulümlere tanıktır. Ümmeti yöneten bir Sultan olmadan, Müslümanlar ilahi destek ve onurdan mahrum kalırlar. Mevlana, ayrıca, kaçınmamız gereken ve tüm Ümmetin kazanç sağlamasını sağlayacak soru sormanın önemini de içeren, iki tip soru sorma yönteminden bahsetti. Continue reading

Bu Şili Madencilik üçlemesinin bu ikinci bölümünde, Mevlana CNN Haber ve FOX TV’ye bir gün arayla röportaj verdi. Mevlana bu röportajlar boyunca, Allah’ın inançsızlığın temellerini yok etmek için, bu olayı yarattığını söyledi. Madenciler; insan mantığına meydan okuyan ve materyalist felsefenin açıklayamadığı, böylesine zorlu bir durumda nasıl hayatta kaldılar ve Mevlana bu kadar uzak bir mesafeden onlarla nasıl iletişime geçti? Bu iman ve Maneviyatın bir kanıtıdır ve en son kanıt ise madencilerden ikisinin, madende sıkışıp kaldıkları dönemde görmüş oldukları kişiyle tanışmak için, Kıbrıs’a gelmeleridir. Orada, onun ellerini öptüler, ayaklarının dibine oturdular ve Mevlana’ya karşı hissettikleri samimi yakınlığı ve yüreklerinde oluşan huzuru açıklayamadan, sevinç gözyaşları döktüler. Manevi Kurtarıcılarını ellerinde İslamı dinleri olarak kabul ettiler ve sadakatlerini bildirip, Müslüman isimleri aldılar. İslamın ve Maneviyatın Güney Amerika’daki önlenemez yayılışı başladı.

Gerçek bir Mürit olmanın sırrı

Bu mecliste, Mevlana her ruhun Hesap Günü’nde nasıl en güzel giysilerle giydirildiği ama bir çok insanın dünyevi başarıları için bu onuru gözardı ettiği ve tanrıya kulluğu yerine getirmediğini anlatıyor. Herkes lider olmak ister, bu gerçek Osmanlı İmparatorluğu’nun parçalanmasına neden olmuştur ve ironik bir şekilde her biri diktatörlük ile yönetilen bu milletler utanmadan tekrar Şeriat’a dönmüştür. Tanrının tokatları bu millet üzerine sonsuza kadar yağacaktır, ta ki bu millet bir Sultan’ın altında birleşene kadar. Bu parçalanma tarikatlara bile yayıldı, hepsi bir Şeyh’in altında olmalarına rağmen. Peygamberimiz (sav) şöyle dedi: “İnancınız olana kadar Cennet’e giremeyeceksiniz ve birbirinizi sevmediğiniz sürece inancınız olmayacak.” Eğer bir birimizi sevemezsek, bir mürit olmayı bırakın, inanan nasıl olabiliriz?

Fear not, Allah is with us

We are in darkest of times now, the Akhir Zaman, a time foretold in every ancient text that will see the worst of human behaviour emerge. Man has become drunk, he has declined to an animal-like lust-filled existence. There is little pity or kindness left in his heart, and there are so few in existense now who are honest and responsible. Man is no longer ashamed to walk around naked and openly defiant; killing and fornication no longer raises an eyebrow. Today, we are being swarmed by the enemies of faith, both the seen and unseen. We have slowly returned to the Days of Jahiliyya, the Days of Ignorance, which was what the Prophet (saw) faced at the outset of his mission.

When Prophet Muhammad (saw) and his small band of hapless followers were persecuted incessantly and viciously in Makkah, they were Divinely inspired to seek greener pastures in Madinatul Munawwara, about 450km North of Makkah. The Prophet (saw) undertook this arduous journey with his closest Companion, Sayyidina Abu Bakr Siddiq (ra), and this Migration, or Hijrah as it is known, marked the start of the Muslim calendar, so significant was its impact on the spread of Islam then.
Despite being pursued by violent enemies bent murder, and despite having the entire world against them at that time, the Prophet (saw) never lost hope in Allah’s help. As they hid in Cave of Thawr, a Quranic Verse, revealing that Prophet Muhammad (saw) had said, “Fear not, for Allah is with us,” to his beloved Companion, was made known.
In this Suhbah, Maulana reminds us from that verse, that Allah is with us, and by uncovering a hidden meaning in one Quranic verse, he reveals that there are 5000 Turbaned Angels poised to descend in support of patient believers, so we must never fear these seen and unseen enemies, even if we know that they have at their disposal, means far beyond ours. King Abraha, with his invincible Army of elephants, marched unstopped towards Makkah, to destroy the Holy Ka’aba. Allah made an example of him and his Army, as a message of hope to heart of believers. So, we must do as Allah says, “Fear not men, but fear Me.” Continue reading

Oh People of Egypt, bring back your King!

As the violence and tension in Egypt escalates, the rest of the Arab world looks on apprehensively. Believers view every incident, whether it be the Category Five hurricane that hit Queensland on the last Wednesday of Safar, or the ominous signs of the fall of dictators in the Middle East, as part of Allah’s signs heralding the approach of the Day of Judgement, and the fitna’ associated with the end of times.

Part Two of Maulana’s address is directed towards the Egyptian people.

Maulana addressed the ulama’, the Leaders, the Protesters and finally the entire nation. We have divided the entire address into two parts for easy reading.

Part one of Maulana address to Egyptians is to Scholars, Leaders and Protesters. In this very special address, Maulana extracts from the Holy Quran, a series of beautiful and relevant Verses, that provide guidance in these dangerous and trying times. He speaks from the advice of the Saints from the Golden Chain, and from the Awtad (Pillar Saints) of Egypt.

Do read carefully, ponder over them and disseminate the information fully, for it could help save lives and save Souls. Continue reading

Stunning Quranic solution to the situation in Egypt

On the 27th of October last year, Maulana announced that all dictators would fall this year. Recite Hasbunallah Robbunallah, he said, and Allah will remove the fear from your hearts, and the dictators will instead flee in fear. Few believed him, for these tyrants have held onto power with an vise-like grip for many decades, oppressing their citizens into submission. In an uncanny turn of events, the Arab world’s dictators now stare exile in the face, as their citizens’ fear seems to have mysteriously evaporated into thin air. Maulana speaks out strongly against protesters who resort to violence and destruction to make their point. There is no need to even lift a finger, Maulana says, if we follow the teaching of a particular Verse in the Quran. And if the citizens realized the actual reason for them being thrust under the yoke of tyrannical dictators, they will be stunned! Read this fascinating Summary, and spread the message to all whom you know in the Middle East. Continue reading

Wearing a Black Turban: 9th December 2010

Every Sunnah of Rasulullah (saw) is a light in our lives, the more Sunnah that we can practice consistently and sincerely, the more light and blessings descend upon our dreary lives. It is sad that Muslims now emulate and idolise the Western way of life, even when such a lifestyle has no blessings and no basis in Shariah. How can we discard the teachings of our learned ones, and instead, trust the opinions of those who have no understanding of Islam? We must honour and follow the olden ways taught by our learned ones, and reject new ideas from the practices of those who reject Islam! Continue reading

Maulana congratulates all rubbish-collectors: 5th November 2010

Why is all of Mankind, from East to West, collecting this dunia? Why is everyone running to collect heaps of rubbish (for that is the reality of this world’s treasures)? Even a heap of gold in dunia, is in reality, a heap of rubbish! Like dogs furiously chasing the elusive rabbit, Man goes out to work everyday with the dream of finally snaring the prey he seeks. Maulana says that dunia is what we flush down out toilets, that is the reality of the ‘treasures’ of this world! This is a generation of people, who believe that their goal in life, is to collect as many heaps of rubbish and as much sewage, as humanly possible! Every human being is an empty-headed one, if he is running after dunia. Maulana cried out, “Congratulations to you who have happily acquired filth as your life’s mission. You have become a rubbish-collector, congratulations!” Mankind has become blind, obsessed animals, rushing to rubbish-collection centres, incinerators, sewage plants and dumps – all greedily stuffing themselves with filth and excrement. Continue reading

Islam honours Women: 30th October 2010

It is not permitted to the Sun to catch up the Moon, nor can the Night outstrip the Day: each (just) swims along in (its own) orbit (according to Law). (Quran 36:40)
The Sun and Moon each have their own orbits, each has its own unique journey and role, each has been equipped for that specific Divine duty that it has been created for. Similarly, men and women have been created and equipped differently and uniquely for their respective duties. Just as the Sun cannot do what the Moon does or vice-versa (the Solar System would be in chaos if it did), men and women must follow the Divine roles they have been designed for. Once they try to move outside their ordained ‘orbits’, chaos will descend upon their lives, as we are seeing right before our eyes, today. Continue reading

Thank God it’s Friday: 29th October 2010

Anyone who disregards his Friday prayers, his entire week will be in chaos! Some people skip prayers, because they are unable to get time off from work. “They will fire me from my job if I pray,” they say. Don’t fear those whom you work for, instead, fear Allah. Let them fire you. Maulana says, it is better to make your boss angry, than to make Allah angry! Oh believers, take the barokah (blessings) of Juma’ah, for if you forsake the blessings of Juma’ah, the other days of the week contain no barokah for you. Continue reading

Why Maulana Shaykh Nazim stopped his Suhbahs

We have been served with 500 Suhbahs, 500 heavenly table-spreads of sumptuous Spiritual food. We have hardly even tasted of the dishes…and we are clamouring and demanding for more? Astaghfirullah….Maulana Shaykh Nazim said the next day, that we must digest the food first, only then will we feel hungry again. It is an oblique reference to the many who have not practised any of the life-changing advice contained within these powerful Suhbahs…. Continue reading

Those who Seek, shall Find: 23rd October 2010

Man’s greatest honour, is to have been invited to the Divine presence. And to add to that honour, Allah addressed the Children of Adam, and sent His Most Honoured Servants to invite him to Allah. With such unprecedented honour, we should be in an eternal prostration of thankfulness and ecstasy. The purpose of Maulana’s Suhbahs, is to invite us to Him. Some hearts have been awakened, but some have run away from the Merciful. Oh Mankind, what has caused you to turn away from your Lord Most Kind? Continue reading

Short snippets of Advice: 21st October 2010

Allah said: ‘Oh My servant, obey Me, and I will raise you to become a Divinely one (Robbani), and when you say ‘BE’ to a matter, it shall be!'” To become a Divinely one, study these 500 Suhbahs that Maulana has given! Maulana said that attenders had been given more (knowledge) than they asked for, they had reached the limit already. Like a person who has eaten his fill, he cannot eat any more until he has digested what is in his stomach. And once a person has digested his food, he becomes hungry again; only then is it time to serve him food once again. If he eats more food while he is still full, everything gets mixed up within his stomach, and he will not derive any benefit from the extra food that he is trying to force down. So it is only logical, to digest the food in one’s stomach first, before asking for more. Continue reading

The night of the special declaration: “Be Mine!” 20th October 2010

Tonight’s Suhbah is the culmination of almost 500 Suhbahs that Maulana has given daily, for almost 18 months. It touches on the very highest point of Servanthood, one that should be our ultimate target to achieve. Any person who understands this Suhbah, will no longer busy himself with petty quarrels and childish egositic acts – we are at the Gate of Qiyamat, and we must complete the journey of becoming Rabbani, His Khalifa, before we return. In this concluding episode, Maulana leads us skillfully to the much-awaited finale. Continue reading

Don’t let strangers into your home: 19th October 2010

Is He happy with us? Do you know what makes Allah unhappy with us? It is when He looks into our hearts, and finds something/someone there, besides Himself! Allah is unhappy with a human being, who puts or welcomes, other than Him, into his heart. The heart is Baitullah, the House of Allah. If it is His House, He is the only One allowed there. How is it that we are allowing this dirty worldly life and our filthy egos, to enter His House? Continue reading

The Key to a Sweet Life: 18th October 2010

Life is sweet, which is why no one wants to die. Even an ant, Maulana says, if you chase it and attempt to kill it, it will run for its life, as it wants to continue to exist and taste the sweetness of existence. Even an ant knows Who brought it into existence and it recites tasbih, glorification of Allah, for it is thankful to have been created out of nothingness, and been brought into existence to taste life’s pleasures. Know that you have been honoured so highly by Allah, so live in a way befitting that honour and draw close to the One who gave you that honour, by thanking Him. Be pleased with Him, and live to please Him. Continue reading

The Art of War – Know your Enemy: 17th October 2010

The aim of every Prophet was to destroy evil. We must have the same intention too, to destroy shaitan and his diabolical representatives. But shaitan has cunningly turned Man against each other, so that they are no longer fighting him. By getting Man to forget this main aim, shaitan ensures that each man lives with bitterness and hatred to his fellow man. Maulana is calling all Muslims, Christians and Jews to return to their respective Holy Books, and to return to the original aim of our lives in dunia. Don’t fight each other – that teaching is from shaitan. Instead, fight shaitan – that teaching is from your Lord! We are to always remember that shaitan is indeed, a cruel and despicable adversary. Man has taken shaitan as a friend, whereas shaitan has always regarded Man as his enemy. Continue reading

The Kingdom of Heaven on earth: 16th October 2010

The only Quranic method of government is rule of Kings – all other Man-made models, are doomed to failure. But as prophesized by Rasulullah (saw), Kings will make way for tyrants, and in that era, ignorance fills the earth, and the ensuing Armageddon removes every cruel tyrant, leaving only those with love in their hearts, to herald the coming of Mahdi (as). Welcome to the Kingdom of Heaven on earth! Continue reading

Return to Him as a servant, and He will honour you like a king: 14th October 2010

There are only two categories in life. There is the Creator, and there is the creation (servants). Since you are not the Creator, you must be the creation, the servant! If you are not acting as a servant, that means you are acting as the Master! Allah is displeased with those who do that – Allah has no partners. So there is only servanthood, there is no other category for us except that. Return to him as servants, and He will grant you never-ending honour and glory! Don’t return to him as a King, but as a servant! Continue reading

Live like a flower in a Garden: 15th October 2010

He exhorted us to live as brothers, like flowers, existing side-by-side without conflict, in a magnificent Garden (of Paradise). Finally, he warned of an impending Divine cleansing, that will destroy all the weeds, but will leave the flowers, untouched. Continue reading

“Oh My Lord, I surrender!” 12th October 2010

Ego makes it difficult for a person to accept that there is one more knowledgeable than himself. Oh believers, humble yourselves! You must admit to yourselves, that you are in constant need of guidance and supervision. What is the Summary of the purpose of the whole Shariah of Islam? It is so that, day by day, the ego becomes weaker and weaker, until it eventually surrenders. At that point, you will say, “I am surrendering, Oh my Lord.” Continue reading

A question posed by the disciples of Jesus: 11th October 2010

Prophets never came to bring laughter and jokes, they were on a serious mission to bring realities. Prophets and Holy Books teach Man to change his life until it is in line with Heavenly Orders. Are you observing closely what you are doing – is it in accordance with Heavenly orders or are you doing as you like? Every act that is obeying your ego, is disobeying Allah! Every act that is accordance with you ego’s demands, is haram! The ultimate pedestal Man can be placed on in this world, is not to be a King, but to be His servant. Continue reading

Arrange your life, as He likes it, not as you like it. 8th October 2010

In this chilling Suhbah, Maulana warns of impending disaster for those who refused to arrange their lives, according to what was brought by the Prophet (saw), for the Way of life brought by the Prophet (saw), is what is pleasing to Him. Nowadays, we are living as we please, not as He pleases. Maulana sees dark clouds on the horizon this Muharram, and warns of a flood of fire, a flood of blood – Divine punishment for those who continue to defy Allah. Continue reading

Be always aware of your approaching death: 9th October 2010

Death is a constant reminder of the hereafter, and we are asked to keep this reminder, by visiting graves. Keep advising the family about the certainty of death, and strive for true conviction and belief (yaqeen). One who has it, will be propelled into Paradise, but one who has no conviction, will become a ride (mount) for his ego and for shaitan. Continue reading

This is something very difficult to do, as we have been doing the opposite for decades now, and it will take many years of practice to perfect it. Continue reading

Have pity on yourselves. Be careful of what you say and do. You can destroy all that you have worked for, with just one cruel word.

So look after yourself and be careful, never be heedless of what you are saying and doing, do not be oppressors to yourselves.

No other Ummah was given Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

Each Prophet had been bestowed the use of Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim only briefly and only during life-threatening moments during their lives. After each incident, Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim was lifted back up to the heavens, and their Ummahs did not receive this verse as a gift for themselves.
We are the only Nation (Ummah) granted Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim. We are so blessed, for we are the Ummah of the Beloved of Allah, and He has given us Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim as a gift for the Ummah of Habeebullah! Continue reading

People of our times seek to share in this characteristic of iblis, they are proud of all that they achieve and administer. We must cleanse ourselves of this sickness in our Souls. 21st century people are proud ones, Maulana says, prouder than Namrud or Fir’aun ever was! Continue reading

Those who seek to please Allah are on Siratal Mustaqeem

Man claims that he is now at the peak of advancement, having harnessed the full potential of technology. A hundred years ago, technology did not exist. Today, we have reached the peak, there is nothing more to achieve, so Shaytan makes Man busy trying to invent theories for many nonsensical matters. What is the point of knowing what size of teeth a T-Rex had? Why should we try to guess the age of the Universe? What is the benefit of knowing the composition of a star a billion miles away? By immersing Man in the pursuit of useless, meaningless and nonsensical knowledge, Man forgets the most important duty he has here on Earth – to understand the reality of his purpose of creation, his status and his journey to his final destination.

How a flute produces beautiful notes

Allah had created each human being as a unique entity. Each creature has been given its own special individual tasks and duties – hence every human being has a responsibility towards His Lord Almighty. Look at how Great and Magnificent Allah is – the Lord has given each creature a special and unique existence, and He is the only One who understands the real identity of every created being. No two humans have identical personalities or responsibilities – each one is special, everyone in mankind is 100% different from the next human being. Continue reading

And even if you did, look what happened to Qarun- he and his wealth were swallowed by an earthquake from Heavenly Anger.
Everyday, he is in suffering in his grave, and he will continue to suffer for eternity. Is it worth it, to seek dunya?

A Jewish man who found a hoard of treasure. “I am so blessed,” said the man, as he opened the treasure chest. He was overjoyed when he saw the contents of the chest, he found gold, diamonds, rubies, emeralds – and a strange letter! The letter had been written by a King who had lived many years before that. The letter read as follows: “Oh you who has found this treasure, this treasure used to belong to me when I was King. I was a rich King, so much land was under my rule, and I had many subjects.

Which camp are you from, the Mukhliseen (sincere ones) or the Mujrimoon (defiant ones)?

A sincere servant, will ask, “Where is the real Islam today?” And he will seek to uphold the mission of Rasulullah (saw).

If he uses a microscope to study the seawater, he will discover so many microscopic creatures that cannot be seen with the naked eye. So depending on how determined we are to explore and discover, more and more knowledge is revealed to us. Continue reading
