Shaykh Mehemt Adil Al-Haqqani, Sohbet of the 8th of September, 2016.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa raḥmatu Llāhi wa barakātuh.
A‘ūdhu biLlāhi mina sh-shayṭāni rrajīm. Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm. Aṣ-ṣalātu wa s-salāmu ‘alá Rasūlinā Muḥammadin Sayyidi l-awwalīna wa l-ākhirīn. Madad yā Rasūla Llāh, madad yā Sādāti Aṣḥābi Rasūli Llāh, madad yā Mashāyikhinā, dastūr yā Shaykh ‘Abdu Llāh al-Fā’iz ad-Dāghistāni, Shaykh Muḥammad Nāẓim al-Ḥaqqānī. Madad. Ṭarīqatunā ṣ-ṣuḥbah wa l-khayru fi l-jam‘iyyah.
Shukr to Allāh, we went and came back from the trip safely. We visited our brothers, murīds of Shaykh Efendi. We met with them and talked. And they prayed for us and we prayed for them. This is a duty of people, Muslims, to treat each other well, pray for each other and wish goodness. By the wisdom of Allāh, Shaykh Efendi was sent as Shaykh to the whole world. He was assigned. Therefore, wherever there was a demand, Shaykh Efendi would go until there. And we are trying to carry out that duty after him as much as we can. Shukr to Allāh, everywhere we went, Shaykh Efendi has made firm foundation there. This ṭarīqah is growing. The truth, Islām is growing, shukr to Allāh. Shaykh Efendi didn’t go for touring. He toured a bit in the beginning, but afterwards when we went together and he wasn’t able to go for long trips anymore. We went 15 years ago in 2001. We can say he couldn’t step out of the door. It was so crowded that he didn’t have a chance. What they [awliyā’] like in this world is to be with Muslims, to lead people to guidance. This is the biggest pleasure for them, the greatest beauty. Otherwise, the beauty of this world or this or that is not important for them.
And people there, shukr to Allāh, love these Awliyā’ and respect them. Islām didn’t go to those far places with war. It reached with good people, with righteous servants. With their strength of faith huge countries entered Islām. For example the big island of Indonesia, not the biggest but the most populated island of Java, there are nine Awliyā’. For their honor, people became Muslim. We went to visit them last time. A holy one named Sharīf HidāyatuLlāh, it is not clearly known where he came from, either from Arabia, or Central Asia. They have such a one. But when you visit him, the majesty of Awliyā’ can be seen. He brought all people from disbelief to faith. There are eight more like him. Nice maqāmāt and tombs were made for them at every place. With their blessings, people are in guidance up to now. To respect them is to respect our Prophet because they didn’t want anything for themselves.
As we said, if a person reaches guidance, it is better than the whole world as our Prophet said: the more people who come to guidance, the happier they are, the more they [the awliyā’] like it. In shā’a Llāh our purpose, the way of Shaykh Efendi is going on. Because the foundation is firm with their blessing. The building is going higher on that foundation. He doesn’t want anything from this world’s benefits, not power, nor wealth. No. It is for the pleasure of Allāh. A person with a mind should think on it. Because when we went to these places 15 years ago, how many people left this world. People became old. Nothing stays the same. Nothing is eternal.
It is with your good deeds, nice actions that you are in the hearts of people. We thought that in 15 years nobody would remember Shaykh Efendi. We went and mā shā’a Llāh they became more. They remember Shaykh Efendi and told us their memories. This cannot be forgotten. But if it was a bad person, nobody would want to hear or talk about him or remember. Everyone shares his memory about Awliyā’ such as: “Shaykh Efendi told us this, he visited us, he prayed for us. With his prayers we have kids and our work is good and everything good happened.”
Therefore, a person should be on the right way and not seek the benefit of this world. He should think about the benefit of his ākhirah. That is the important thing. Gaining is in ākhirah, there’s nothing in this world. If you rule over the whole world for 5, 10, 100 years, they will say “The man is gone. We are saved now.” Don’t be like this. Ruling over the world and having it said “We are saved from him” is a proof of weakness. His end is not good. All this fame, greatness, money, wealth is just a step away. You close your eyes and it’s gone. You’ll be thrown under the ground and then they will swear at you. It’s better not to have it at all.
May Allāh give the best in shā’a Llāh. May He give the best from what He gives.
Al-ḥamdu liLlāh we have been long trip to visit places where Mawlānā Shaykh he was visiting. Because Mawlānā Shaykh he was Shaykh for whole, whole people, whole world, not only for here. So he was going as much as he can, not stopping at all and going for sake of Allāh. Not for tourist, to look for beauty of here and there. No his main aim where is people they want him, they love to meet him, he was accepting their invitation and he would try and go and make them happy. Because, happiness for Awliyā’u Llāh is to meet with good people, to give one person who was not right way, if he can take him to hidāyah to make him to come to right way, this is the most happiness for him. Not happiness to travelling or to see new countries, new…no. Because Mawlānā last trip when we were with him, he was even not putting one foot out of the house from people, who were looking, seeing him, speaking with him, and he was happy, not complaining. “I want see here, see there.” No, his happiness only to be people happy with him.
And he make strong foundation, strong building for Islām, for ṭarīqah, for reality. Because these people they have good manners, and they are respecting Awliyā’u Llāh. Because their country especially did not become Muslim by war, by sword, no. By Awliyā’u Llāh, beloved people of Allāh. Whole country from the biggest population in Indonesia is Java. There is nine Saints, nine Awliyā’u Llāh. This without fighting, without doing anything, just by their strong belief, imān, and their karāmah all this island become Muslim. And they have their grave there, very powerful. People still until now they’re visiting them and respecting them. We visit one of them. In shā’a Llāh if Allāh gives us life we can in shā’a Llāh one by one we will visit nine of them in shā’a Llāh. This was near – his name Sharīf HidāyatuLlāh. He is coming, they don’t know from where he is coming but he is maybe they say from Yemen, some of them they say from central Asia, but they don’t know, but he was making this area whole Muslim.
And he is has karāmah and even Sulṭāns they are, they have graveyards near him. And the most important for human being to see this example for… for themselves.
These people they were, they don’t have any power for Sultanate or money or anything, only their power spiritual power. And they’re praised and their people loving them until Qiyāmah. And there are people they are ruling 10 years, 15 years, 20 years, 30 years, and they are oppressing people and after what will they have when they’re died? Nothing, only people they are happy to get rid of them. Who has good mind, good thinking, must think about this. This dunyā only very short time, you get it. But if for ākhirah it is forever. Even after you died people they are thinking good thing about you. They are remembering you, they’re making du‘ā’ for you. And this is for Awliyā’u Llāh, all Awliyā’u Llāh because since long time when we are not going some place it is like maybe 15 years maybe we didn’t go. After this, I thought these people they forget Mawlānā, because Mawlānā 15 years must be nobody remember him I said, by themselves.
But al-ḥamdu liLlāh when we are there, they all remember and they are all happy with Mawlānā. Everybody they said, “Mawlānā he was told me this. He said for me this, he made du‘ā’ for me like this and I succeeded.” And all big and small people, all they have his memory and they are not forgetting. Allāh not make these people to forget. But for who are only running after dunyā it is Allāh make these people to forget, and to be people happy when these people disappear. But for Awliyā’u Llāh and good people all time they have good memory for them in minds of people. In shā’a Llāh Mawlānā he put strong building in everywhere, not only this – we say Far East, Far West, far North, South, everywhere alḥamdu liLlāh his barakah his support, and from…until Qiyāmah it must be. It is al-ḥamdu liLlāh. because many people even they saw Mawlānā, “we saw him in dream.” And this is karāmah for Mawlānā, for people who are not seeing him at all or some need anything. He when say, coming for them for madad, to support them. We are seeing this and we are happy with this, and in shā’a Llāh his…. what he intended… it is going al-ḥamdu liLlāh until Qiyāmah.
Wa min Allāhi t-tawfīq, al-Fātiḥah
