Shaykh Mehemet Adil Al-Haqqani, Sohbet of the 16th of April, 2018.

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-awwalīn 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-Dāghistānī, Shaykh Muḥammad Nāẓim al-Ḥaqqānī. Madad.

Ṭarīqatunā ṣ-ṣuḥbah wa l-khayru fi l-jam‘iyyah.

Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla told us in Qur’ānu l-Karīm things that will make all our lives better. All sūrahs are beautiful – long and short. Some are short but they can cover everything. For example, Sūratu l-‘Aṣr. Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm. “Wa l-‘aṣri inna l-insāna lafī khusrin illā lladhīna āmanū wa ‘amilū ṣ-ṣāliḥāti wa tawāṣaw bil-ḥaqqi wa tawāṣaw biṣ-ṣabr” (103:1-3). It shows everything we should do in order not to be in loss… Mankind is in loss and danger. This is said about the majority of people. Their end is in loss. Their lives are harmed and in loss. It is said that only those who believe, do goodness and charity. They are the exception.

But as we said, the majority of people are in loss because they cannot think of believing or doing goodness. Those who do are in the minority. The majority are those who don’t believe, who have no religion, who are outside Allāh’s جل جلاله religion. If you look, the whole world is like this. And it is the same among Muslims. They can have belief but they don’t carry out Allāh’s جل جلاله orders. They are in loss too because they’ve got the favour and don’t use it. They push it away and say “I don’t want it”.

“Wa tawāṣaw bil-ḥaqq” (103:3). They should advise each other goodness and truth: “Follow the truth. Be on the true way. Pay due rights. Don’t take someone’s rights away. Be satisfied with Ḥaqq.” The name that was given to Mawlānā was Ḥaqqānī. Ḥaqqānī means the one who accepts Ḥaqq, who is pleased with Ḥaqq, who doesn’t ask for anything but Ḥaqq. Nearly 40 years ago brothers had gathered and Mawlānā said this in the city of Tripoli in Lebanon. Tripoli is a blessed beautiful city. Mawlānā loved it. He used to visit it every 15 days. He stayed there and gave ṣuḥbah to people. And he said in one of the meetings that this is his name – Ḥaqqānī, Shaykh Nāẓim al-Ḥaqqānī – the one who accepts and wants Ḥaqq. Therefore, it wasn’t by his wish. That name was given to him and until Qiyāmah it is his name, just like other mashāyikh who have different names. And we have to keep Mawlānā’s name as Shaykh Nāẓim al-Ḥaqqānī. It has its wisdom. Who gave this name know what kind of name it is. We won’t change this name because this one or that one said something. We can’t change it unless he himself changes it. And he didn’t change it. He had lived with this name for 40 years. We have to accept it and not make him upset. ”

“Wa tawāṣaw bil-ḥaqqi wa tawāṣaw biṣ-ṣabr” (103:3). “And then advise patience to each other.” The result of patience is good. It’s not easy to bear something. It’s not easy for people to bear problems, sorrow, evil and wrong actions. But it is a means to join the group beloved by Allāh جل جلاله .We should be patient for this reason. We have to be tolerant. It is the test of this world. No need to argue and fight with people. An impatient person is always upset. He makes more harm for himself. The outcome of patience is peace. They say it is bitter but its fruit is sweet.

May Allāh جل جلاله let us use this advice and be in the group mentioned by Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla, in shā’a Llāh.

Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla He جل جلاله is giving us advice in Qur’ān whole verses, very nice big verses, big Sūrah, small Sūrah. All of them very valuable. They are whole like most precious jewel. They are even sometimes, small one maybe people they not caring, reading quickly. One of them this Sūratu l-‘Aṣr  Allāh جل جلاله swear on time or ‘Aṣr – whole human being they are losers, they are loser. Only acceptable – accept people who are believe on Allāh جل جلاله” – illa lladhīna āmanū wa ‘amilu ṣ-ṣāliḥāt” (103:3) and they make good deed. Good deed what it is? First worship what Allāh جل جلاله order us to worship, what His جل جلاله order to make praying, fasting, if you have enough money to go to pilgrimage, to ḥajj, and to give zakāt if you have money. Also this is worshipping this is ṣāliḥāt.

Because in this world majority they are loser. The non-believer – first loser because they are not believer. But even if who are believer they are not practicing, also they will lose what Allāh جل جلاله grant them – this favour to give them for each thing they are doing, ten times, hundred times, thousand times. Because they are not doing this also they are loser. Only who are doing what He جل جلاله is order, they are winner. Maybe he has now any thing on his but he is winner. Maybe there is people they have half of country, they are loser because they are not in this way. This is first.

Second one: “Wa tawāṣaw bil-ḥaqq” (103:3), to accept truth. Ḥaqq means truth. Truth – we must accept for give everybody’s right. What his right, you accept right of Allāh جل جلاله ,right of Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم ,to each people what their ḥaqq. Don’t take their rights, their thing – this is ḥaqq meaning. “Wa tawāṣaw bi l-ḥaqq” (103:3). It is very important to be not be loser. And, subḥāna Llāh, Mawlānā Shaykh he is name in between awliyā’ – Al-Ḥaqqānī. What meaning? He is the defender of or he is following ḥaqq. He is with ḥaqq all time. And this was given for him, I remember, before forty years ago. I was in Tripoli Libanon. Tripoli blessed city, nice city. Mawlānā was like it. And he come, he was that time going, coming from Damascus each, every fifteen days. He is going and coming and one murīd they coming say – I was in… I wasn’t there but the people coming and saying to me Mawlānā was saying, you know what is today they give him name.

They give him Al-Ḥaqqānī. Al-Ḥaqqānī very high rank for Mawlānā and he was happy with this because he is all time he is with ḥaqq. Ḥaqq also Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla so he is belong to Ḥaqq. Ḥaqq with him all time. Forty years he was, until his… and, in shā’a Llāh, for until Qiyāmah, until forever also Ḥaqqānī, he is Ḥaqqānī. When they give him this name they are knowing. No anybody can change this name for him if he not want and he didn’t want. Whole his life he was carrying this and it is… we are inherit for us. We are must his will, accept his will. Not saying against this. Who take this, it will be problem for him. For this he is happy with this. In shā’a Llāh nobody can, no need for any change for this name and not make – sometimes people making problem with this name – so no need for this. Only accept for awliyā’u Llāh, Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم ,Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla, giving him this name and he was happy. They are not playing – “we can change, give you today this, tomorrow that.” No this for awliyā’ – special like Mawlānā cannot change but for other, they can change. For what they are doing maybe can change but for Mawlānā cannot. So, al-ḥamdu liLlāh, we are happy with this name and it is mention everywhere.

It is good thing to do for people to accept Ḥaqq, to accept truth, to give everybody his right. This is Mawlānā’s mission. He was doing this, until now he is doing also from spiritual world also. “Wa tawāṣaw bil-ḥaqqi wa tawāṣaw biṣ-ṣabr” (103:3), and to be patient; to say it for each other to be patient. Because patient it is good thing but it is difficult. And this time people they are most of them impatient. They are not patient and they want quickly everything to happen. Not patient for other people also. But it is, when you are not patient you have many problem. If you are patient you will be safe. And they said patient it is bitter. Bitter but fruit it is sweet. If you be patient at the end you find nice thing. But if you not patient, all time you will be problem and first problem for yourself. You hurt yourself with your anger and impatience. Allāh جل جلاله give us, in shā’a Llāh, to be with this people, the winner, in shā’a Llāh, here and hereafter.
