Shaykh Mehmet Adil Al-Haqqani, Sohbet of the 14th of June, 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 Rasūlina Muḥammadin Sayyidi l-awwalina wa l-ākhirīn. Madad yā Rasūl Allāh, madad yā Sādāti Aṣḥābi Rasūli Llāh, madad yā Mashāyikhinā, dastūr yā Shaykh ‘Abdu Llāh ad-Dāghistāni, Shaykh Muḥammad Nāẓim al-Haqqāni. Ṭarīqatunā ṣ-ṣuḥbah wa l-khayru fi l-jam‘iyyah.

One of the gifts of Allāh given during Ramaḍān is the acceptance of the du‘ā’ of a fasting man at ifṭār, our Prophet says. Du‘ā’ is the most important thing. When you ask from Allāh, Allāh will grant it, Allāh will accept it. And a du‘ā’ made at ifṭār is one of the accepted prayers.

When you break your fast and make your du‘ā’, ask for everything. Allāh is generous. Especially this month He’s even more generous. There is generosity in this month, the favours of Allāh are many times more. Ask whatever you want. Ask for health, ask for long life, pious children, good provision and property. Ask for peace. Whatever goodness, ask for it. But don’t curse and ask for bad things. When a man asks for good things, bad things leave him. Don’t curse someone who did wrong to you. Don’t even think about it. Pray only for goodness for yourself, goodness for people and Muslims. Pray for guidance. Who always asks for goodness, Allāh gives him goodness. It will be good for people. They will be accepted and merciful.

Secondly, our Prophet says, that the other ones, whose prayer is also accepted – which is not everyone – the second is a just Sulṭān. There are very few Sulṭāns in the world. There are only a couple of Sulṭāns in the world but they don’t have power. They have the rank but cannot do anything. They can’t rule over people, command to do good or bad. They are on their own. They are not as our Prophet described – there are none of those, but now we have ministers, prime ministers, and presidents. Whoever is just among them, their prayers are accepted. And that is very rare. There are 200 governments in the world. Each of them have so many presidents, ministers, state representatives etc. They add up to a lot of people. And if there are ones treating people with justice, their prayers are accepted too. And their prayers are above ours.

The Prophet said about our prayer that it is accepted at ifṭār time. And the third is the prayer of the oppressed. May Allāh not put anyone in that position. Pay attention to the prayer of the oppressed – don’t be an oppressor, because their prayers are accepted. The du‘ā’ of the oppressed are above the clouds, so high. They are accepted too. Therefore, we should pay attention to this. We mustn’t oppress anyone on purpose. When you don’t know, you are not aware of it. But oppressing on purpose is a big danger, a very big trouble. Oppression is not good. It is a trouble even for the one who does it. An oppressor is always in danger and in frustration.

As we said, the most important is that Allāh granted fasting people such a favour. Their prayers at ifṭār time are accepted. Let us pray for good things at ifṭār, in shā’ Allāh.

Ramaḍān, it is the month of every good thing. Especially, Allāh, He give His generosity. He’s generous all [the] time but in Ramaḍān He’s more and more generous. And Prophet (saw) in ḥādīth saying: Allāh accept your du‘ā’ praying at time of breaking fast, in sunset, maghrib time. When finish fasting, you begin to eat, must make du‘ā’ there. This du‘ā’ praying, it is acceptable [accepted] du‘ā’ for whole [all] fasting people. Because Allāh from His mercy and His happiness for people, [who] they are obeying and they are worshipping – especially fasting difficult for ego for weak persons. And so Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla happy and He said “I am accepting your du‘ā’”. And praying, it is very important for us.

And everything we will need we can ask from Allāh. In that time you can ask everything. Don’t be ashamed. Ask and don’t be afraid it is too much. No. Allāh He can… Nothing too much for Allāh. Everything nothing for Him. So you can ask. What we say: ask good things for you, for your family, for your life, for health, wealth, for… Everything good, ask. Don’t think for bad thing. For people to ask bad thing for people, it is not good. Because when you want good thing, Allāh give you good nice thing. But if you mix with other things, you’ll be not so happy. When you… To be happy, you must ask beautiful thing, good thing. Don’t think about bad thing at all. Think all for good thing.

And it is good tiding for fasting people. Al-ḥamdu liLlāh, this is for Ramaḍān – Allāh big gift this. Because Prophet (saw) saying three people, Allāh accept their du‘ā’: and this [first] is for us, for ordinary people, for normal people who are… who cannot be like others. Second one, Allāh saying for just people who are governing – Sulṭān. Sulṭān nowadays, king or sulṭān very few in this world. Now nearly more than 200 countries we have. Sulṭān maybe 20 or 30 only in these country. And even these 30 nobody ruling. What are ruling? The governor, there are ministers, there are presidents, prime ministers. This is ruler. And if they are just, they are accepted, Allāh accept their prayer, their du‘ā’. But this is… Nowadays you see it is most of them tyrants, most of them following shayṭān. Very few of them, you find justice. These few people, Allāh accept their du‘ā’.

But we cannot be king or to be ruler, to be governor. We, al-ḥamdu liLlāh, Allāh give us first one: to fasting every day accepting our du‘ā’, 29 days or 30 days. Third one, Allāh accept the oppressed people, maẓlūm. Their du‘ā’ it is up of the cloud – very high. Nothing between them and between Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla. Be careful for this. Don’t oppress anybody. You can be oppressed but don’t be oppressor. It is dangerous. Very big danger for people who are oppressing people. Because this his du‘ā’, it is nothing between him and Lord. Quickly coming to Lord and Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla accept and cursing this oppressor.

The most important here, what in ṣuḥbah we give good tiding, to be making, to get benefit from fasting and to make du‘ā’, especially time of ifṭār, in shā’ Allāh. Allāh accept our du‘ā’. We need all good [things] for our Ummah Muḥammad (saw). Allāh give them good understanding and take them to right way. Because they are showing wrong way [as it is] right way.

Right way they are saying this is not good. They are… They are in doubt. They are in… shayṭān make this for them. But we are al-ḥamdu liLlāh we are making du‘ā’ to make them to accept the right way, in shā’ Allāh.
