Shaykh Mehmet Adil Al-Haqqani, Sohbet of the 18th of July, 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, dastūr yā Shaykh ‘Abdu Llāh al-Fā’iz ad-Dāghistāni, Shaykh Muḥammad Nāẓim alḤaqqāni. Madad. Ṭarīqatunā ṣ-ṣuḥbah wa l-khayru fi l-jam‘iyyah.

In shā’a Llāh, we ask goodness of everything from Allāh. People want, Allāh does what He wants. “Anta turīd wa anā urīd wa Llāhu yaf‘alu mā yurīd”. These are the words of great people. “You want, I want, Allāh does what He wants.” Allāh, Allāh Almighty He is absolutely Able. Everything is in His hands. Nothing goes out of His order. Everybody is at His command. Do as you like but Allāh does what He wants. He decides when everything will happen.

In shā’a Llāh, we want what Allāh wants. Our ego is sad when what it wants doesn’t happen. But we pray to Allāh to do the best for us. Many things seem bad but are actually good. Some things seem good but are actually bad. That’s why we ask for goodness from Allāh. May Allāh give us all kinds of goodness, in shā’a Llāh. Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla has control over people’s hearts. He turns them whenever He wants, to wherever He wants. Don’t think anything happens by your effort, by your mind. It is with Allāh’s order.

If you trust in Allāh, ask from Allāh, it happens. If you want for your ego, the result is loss. What you want should be what Allāh accepts, not things that follow your ego. Want what Allāh wants and Allāh decrees. No matter how clever you are, if Allāh wants, in one moment, Allāh gets you out of the way and you end up exhausted. If He wants, in one hour. Everything is in Allāh’s hands. Nothing is in your control, in human’s control. Everything is under Allāh’s control. We say “May He give us goodness”. In shā’a Llāh, people’s hearts turn towards Allāh. This is what Mawlānā said – we want this.

Don’t lose hope. Always invite people to goodness, work for goodness. If it works, it works. If not, still you’ll be rewarded. But if you work for your ego, even if it happens, it isn’t for your good. If it doesn’t happen, it still isn’t good. You should always think of Allāh, don’t forget Him. This is dhikr. Fadhakkir is remembrance. Of course there is the dhikr, but Allāh should always be with you. Say “We want what Allāh wants”. In shā’a Llāh, what we want is to be away from our egos.

There is, Allāh He do everything for He our Creator and He is absolute able to do anything, no negotiation for this. There is saying of great people, Awliyā’u Llāh, in Arabic “Anta turīd wa anā urīd wa Llāhu yaf‘alu mā yurīd.” This what meaning? “You want something and I want something, everyone wants different thing but Allāh He does what He wants .

So we must put our, what we want, to be according to Allāh Almighty’s will, what He wants. We must look for what He wants and to follow what He wants, to not be following opposite of what Allāh orders, what He wants. Because everything is in His holy will. You cannot, as much as you are clever, you are doing everything, if Allāh He doesn’t want it you cannot succeed.

People they ask how this non-believer or atheist they succeed? This also from His will. Allāh’s will to make it a test for people or to make them to be more proud, to be more…to get more punishment in ākhirah. In Qur’ān He said even – “I can do for them a house from silver.” (43:33) in dunyā. For whom? For these non-believers to make them more against, to make them test for people, to give them punishment, more punishment. So everything, Allāh what He wants we must be accepting, to be satisfied with what He give us. Many times, we want something it is not good for us, you… it appear it is very good for us, but when it happens it will be very bad for us. Sometimes very bad things can happen and people not happy, but at the end they will be happy with this, because Allāh He gives us the best. We must accept this. It’s in Qur’ān also saying same thing – you’ll be…don’t be objecting for anything from Allāh. Everything is in His holy will.

These days it is difficult days, so we must be carful and to be give ourselves to what Allāh wills. He likes to do, we are happy with this, we must say. He created us in this time, it is difficult time, but it is also very blessed for believers, who are catching the real way of Allāh and Prophet (saws). These are the days what the Prophet was saying, who catching his religion as he catches fire in his hand. Because the real believer they are attacked from every people, everywhere. From shayṭān and his followers, they attack them from everywhere. But we mustn’t be sad, we must be happy, Allāh He created us in this time and He is giving more rewards for us. We are accepting what Allāh gives us and, in shā’a Llāh, our will is with Allāh’s will. Allāh make us to be satisfied with this, to not be from who’s not accepting this. Because if you’re accepting, if you not accept, you are in this so you must accept this situation and be satisfied in yourself, you have peace in your heart.

If you are afraid, your belief it is not so strong. You must be… Allāh is with us, He never left us and He is, everything will finish, Allāh still as He was. No changing, nothing for Him. The only [ones] changing [are] people. And who was with Allāh, he will be in next life also, after finish this life, after it is finished. In shā’a Llāh, next life, real life, it will be…real good for these believers, strong believer. But if they are happy here also, they will be more better for them, to not be all the time stressed in this world. Just leave yourself for Allāh’s will. You want, I want, Allāh He does what He wants.

Wa min Allāhi t-tawfīq al-Fātiḥah.
