Shaykh Mehmet Adil Al-Haqqani, Sohbet of the 12th of April, 2018.
As-Salāmu ‘alaykum wa raḥmatu Llāhi wa barakātuh.
A‘ūdhu biLlāhi mina sh-shayṭāni r- rajīm. 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.
Our ṭarīqah exists with ṣuḥbah and goodness is in assembly. The goodness of this assembly extends to those who come. Certainly a person who comes to these gatherings finds benefit in them. There are many gatherings. If you go to the markets, there are all kinds of gatherings but all of them are gatherings for this world. The world is remembered there, Allāh جل جلاله is forgotten.
Our gatherings are to remind about Allāh جل جلاله, gatherings to be with Allāh جل جلاله. These are the best of gatherings. And these gatherings are few. When compared to other gatherings, they are very few. Therefore, no matter how people come to these gatherings, they certainly get benefit out of them. It will be useful for them. There will be guidance for their egos. Slowly, slowly Allāh جل جلاله will help them stay away from wrong things. Therefore, whoever comes from far or near, when their goal is the pleasure of Allāh جل جلاله and meeting people there , Allah جل جلاله writes thawāb (reward) for their every step; forgives their sins and raises their station.
And we are in holy months now. The month of Rajab is the holy month of Allāh جل جلاله. During this month thawāb is given ten fold, hundred fold, even thousand fold more. Coming and being present in these gatherings is a rare treasure. People look for treasure. Nowadays it became fashionable. The main treasure they should look for, which will bring eternal benefit, is these gatherings. And we should hold to these gatherings. Shayṭān doesn’t like these gatherings. When someone wants to attend, he puts a hundred burdens on him. He tries to put a hundred obstacles in order for the man not to come. But when the man comes, he gets blessings from this gathering. He reaches Allāh’s جل جلاله favours. Burdens are lifted off his shoulders. When he returns home from the gathering, he is lighter and blessed, full of light. People who attend other gatherings come light and running, but after they sit there, heaviness and darkness falls on them. When they leave it, they leave troubled. They enter their homes with a problem.
This is an important matter because all people now are thinking, “We are in trouble and stress.” Of course, it is because of these bad gatherings. This bad gathering influences other people too. And good gatherings give light and benefit to the cities and countries around. No matter how much evil there is, people who come to that gathering find peace. And pleasure is felt by the people around, as the favour of Allāh جل جلاله comes to that city or country. May Allāh جل جلاله increase these gatherings. Mawlānā used to say, “I will make forty thousand dergahs. That is my intention.” Shukr to Allāh جل جلاله, there are many dergahs. May they become even more. They are the gatherings of Allāh ,جل جلاله
Our ṭarīqah we said it is ṣuḥbah and to be gathering with good people and to meet with good people and to mention Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla and Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and holy people, good people. This is our gathering, main aim for ṭarīqah to gather with people and to teach them. This majlis, gathering it is blessed one. Each people coming here for any purpose, Allāh جل جلاله will reward them. Even Grand Shaykh was saying, if somebody coming to call one from majlis and he just going this majlis – even this man Allāh جل جلاله will reward him and give him reward. Because this is many gathering in every country, every place, every city, but to find gathering for sake of Allāh جل جلاله very rare. Very few but it is the most precious, the what have value. Because giving people bless from Allāh جل جلاله and Allāh جل جلاله kindness on them and every good thing for this people who are attending this gathering.
They are coming for this gathering, people, many people shayṭān make them to many excuse to not come. Difficult for them to come but if they come, they are will be happy. They will be light. When finish gathering and going to their house, Allāh جل جلاله give them also present to take this sadness from them and give them happiness, give them mercy. When they going to house they will be happy with family also. But other gathering – they are coming quickly running for bad gathering and after becoming heavy, becoming stress, becoming more sad when they are going out to their house. But they are not knowing from what this happen. This country or other country, every city, thousands of gathering but most of them for bad thing, only for to enjoy their ego. Themself speaking with people to they are thinking we are doing good but when they are not remembering Allāh جل جلاله they are not doing good. They thought everything from themself and after this when Allāh جل جلاله give them heaviness and darkness they don’t know what to do.
To do to remember Allāh جل جلاله, to attend good gathering and remembering, mentioning holy name of Allāh جل جلاله, mentioning Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, and holy people and to ask bless from and forgiveness from Allāh جل جلاله. When you do this you are, in shā’a Llāh, happy and we are especially in this very holy months, first month Rajab – month of Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla. And it is nearly finish.
Tomorrow, in shā’a Llāh, tomorrow night we will make, in shā’a Llāh, Isrā’, Mi‘rāj. We will make, in shā’a Llāh, gathering also for this. It is very holy night, in shā’a Llāh, and after that next day there is fasting. Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم was encouraging us to fast this and to make tomorrow night holy night. Ask what you want from Allāh جل جلاله. In shā’a Llāh, Allāh جل جلاله give us this what we are wanting. All good, all for ummah, for hidāyah for all of people, in shā’a Llāh.
Wa min Allāhi t-tawfīq, al-Fātiḥah.
