Shaykh Mehmet Adil Al-Haqqani, Sohbet of the 8th of May, 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.
A Muslim man or any person following any ṭarīqah should know the adab of Islām and the adab of ṭarīqah. The adab of Islām is a bit lighter. A person belonging to ṭarīqah should keep to the boundaries of adab and pay attention to adab. They should know everything comes from Allāh جل جلاله. They shouldn’t let Allāh جل جلاله out of their heart. Dhikru Llāh means to remember Allāh جل جلاله for twenty four hours. Whatever happens, a man should say it is the will of Allāh جل جلاله and accept it, be pleased and satisfied with it – the man in ṭarīqah.
Of course, ṭarīqahs are not like before. In old times it was much harder. Now as it is the end of times, it is lighter. It is as much as a person can bear. It can be done now too. The old Mashāyikh used to tell murīds, a person who gives you gold should be the same as the person who hits you on your neck. You should think both came from Allāh جل جلاله and be neither happy, nor upset. You shouldn’t have feelings for the men, you shouldn’t hate them. Of course you should thank the other one. You should think that both things came from Allāh جل جلاله. People nowadays cannot carry this. People get annoyed even by words. And matters like getting hit, they cannot stand it. Yet they should remember Allāh جل جلاله. Allāh جل جلاله should always be in our hearts as much as possible. Whatever happens and you get upset, remember directly it is from Allāh جل جلاله. Your sadness will become lighter then. When you are needy, say, “There is Allāh جل جلاله. Allah جل جلاله is testing us. This trouble will go too.” Because you know it comes from somewhere bigger. It’s not for nothing.
If you know that your rank and rewards will increase, it will be easier and you’ll be content. Otherwise, when you don’t know, you keep mumbling, “How did this happen? Where did this trouble come from? Where did this problem come from?” To know Allāh جل جلاله and to be with Allāh جل جلاله is the biggest favour, is the biggest goodness. All troubles will go away. You’ll be in peace, always in peace. “Allāh جل جلاله is with me. Allāh جل جلاله is seeing me.” We are always together with Allāh جل جلاله. Allāh جل جلاله is with us for twenty four hours. If you think so, you will be relaxed then. If you don’t think so, you will spend your life in regret. You’ll be mumbling, “If only I did this. If only I did that. If only this and that happened,” and die at last with all your life spent in troubles. Therefore, a man is in peace in this world when he remembers Allāh جل جلاله and doesn’t let Allāh جل جلاله out of his heart.
Everything we are in this life, we must know Allāh جل جلاله He is by His will we are in this life. Many times people they are complaining, every people, but for ṭarīqah people, for Muslim and especially for ṭarīqah people to be respect and good behave – good behave it is first order, adab, good behave. Adab for ṭarīqah people you must keep respect and adab with Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla and with other people also. Everything it is from Him جل جلاله. This is adab for people to know what happen, it is coming from Him جل جلاله. And to remember this you must make remembrance of Allāh جل جلاله twenty four hour per day every day. You must put Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla in your heart. Don’t go without thinking, “Our Lord is in our heart.”
Dhikr, meaning to remember meaning and when you do this twenty four hour you making you like you are doing dhikr. Because you are remembering Allāh جل جلاله and He جل جلاله – you know He جل جلاله is with you. Everything you done it will be better. This for ṭarīqah people: it is very important good behave and to know everything coming from Allāh جل جلاله. This was a old time mashāyikh was teaching their murīd. Old time they was more strict than this day but now the end of time. It is okay like this because people even if they said in “we are in ṭarīqah” it is enough for them. Because many they are attacking reality and attacking ṭarīqah, attacking way of Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, so we are – only if you say you are in ṭarīqah it is okay also.
But in ṭarīqah you must learn adab, good behave. And good behave it is was, as we said, in old time very strict in ṭarīqah – to how to acting, how to coming, how to going, through for mosque, for Shaykh, for Murshid, and for how you must dress, what you will eat, what you will do. All this was very strict and especially for making between people also. They was saying, if somebody giving you gold coin and other one hitting you, slapping you in your neck, you mustn’t be angry for this and you mustn’t be happy with other. You must thanking of course but not be angry for other because both coming from Allāh جل جلاله, from our Lord. This acting this people – Allāh جل جلاله send them for you – same. This is for highest thing for murīd to if he can do this. Is very difficult to do especially this time nobody can do this. So but also just to saying how it was before and also you can take idea to be thinking about this also.
Everything coming from Allāh جل جلاله. If you think like this your life it will be more easy, more happy. Because many people complaining, “Oh from where this coming this problem for me?” And other, “From where coming this?” Anxious, this stress coming for you from where this coming? If you know this coming from your Lord, you will be quiet and you be accepted and you will be happy because you know when Allāh جل جلاله sending something for this like this He جل جلاله make you give reward for what He جل جلاله send for you. If when for in ākhirah, you said if .جل جلاله you wish to have more than this difficult in your life to get more reward from Allāh جل جلاله
So this is for believer and ṭarīqah people making our life more easier. Every time remember when you have something difficult, something you are not happy with this, you remember your Lord. You said, “Allāh جل جلاله al-ḥamdu liLlāh it is from You جل جلاله and we are happy with جل جلاله are give us. We are happy from Your mercy. We are happy from what You جل جلاله what You send. Everything we are happy with this.” This is happiness for believer, for mu’min. But other who are they don’t have belief, whole life taking pills, going to psychiatry. Going to psychiatry they are every day they have problem, whole life problem and then nothing.
So, al-ḥamdu liLlāh, we are, Allāh جل جلاله make us believer but we must remember this. For this ṣuḥbah for this to remember everybody. Our Lord, in shā’a Llāh, Allāh جل جلاله give us all happiness, in shā’a Llāh, no imtiḥān (test). Wa min Allāhi t-tawfīq, al-Fātiḥah.
