Shukr to Allāh جل جلاله, with Mawlānā’s barakah, with his support, we gathered here again. With his support and love this meeting is happening. May his blessings be upon all of us, in shā’a Llāh. This way is the way of the Prophets. Since Ādam ‘alayhi s-salām this has been the way. The Prophets, those who followed them, and people who believe them now, are keeping on this way. After Ādam ‘alayhi s-salām his son Shīth (Seth) ‘alayhi s-salām came. After him came Idrīs ‘alayhi s-salām, Nūḥ ‘alayhi s-salām, Ibrāhīm ‘alayhi s-salām, Ismā‘īl ‘alayhi s- salām, Mūsá ‘alayhi s-salām, Hārūn ‘alayhi s-salām. These Prophets came one after another until our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. And after our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم it continued in the same manner – Awliyā’ continuing one after another.
How lucky are those who are with them. This matter is the matter of fate and favour. Who is favoured with it remains firm in their support. When Hārūn ‘alayhi s-salām came after Mūsá ‘alayhi s-salām… Hārūn ‘alayhi s-salām passed away first. When ‘Īsá ‘alayhi s-salām came, in order to keep this way going, only true believers remained on it. After our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, in the same manner – some tribes went off the way. Sayyidinā Abū Bakr raḍī Allāhu ‘anhu fought with them. He protected the religion. This way, as we said, is the way of people who love Allāh جل جلاله and are beloved by Him جل جلاله. It is not the way of material benefit. Mawlānā told us throughout all his life: “This world is rubbish. Don’t go after it. Follow me. Follow the way I am showing.” And he always turned away from dunyā. Since the beginning, when he got rid of dunyā he reached Mawlā. Had he put dunyā as his purpose, he wouldn’t have reached to these ranks.
Dunyā is low, it is vile. The further away you are from it, the higher you reach. Therefore, our coming here, our coming to his beautiful dergah, his grave and maqām, is a favour for all of us. It is a favour that Allāh جل جلاله made us firm on the way. And it is a sign of His جل جلاله pleasure. If it wasn’t firm, we wouldn’t come. We wouldn’t even think or remember about it. But with His جل جلاله support, with His جل جلاله kindness and blessing, it is meant for us. Who could, came. Of course, not everyone can come every year. They come one year and skip two. They come two years and skip three. They still come. That’s ok as long as their hearts are here. Not everyone can go to ḥajj. The same holds for here. Who has the ability comes. Who doesn’t have the ability, comes some time later. As long as they are firm on the inside, the body is not important. They should have pure hearts and intention. They should have pure intentions for Allāh جل جلاله, for the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, for Mashāyikh. When the hearts are always with them, in shā’a Llāh they receive from the rewards of those who come. Because it is important for most, who can’t come, to say, “If only I was there.” They will get thawāb for their intention.
May Allāh جل جلاله make us firm. Because shayṭān is not standing still. He makes fitnah. He tries to show himself as right. He puts you in doubt, questioning your correctness. Therefore, may Allāh جل جلاله give us the power of īmān and persistence. May we not listen to shayṭān, in shā’a Llāh.
Al-ḥamdu liLlāh we are coming again for anniversary of Mawlānā. Mawlānā he is whole life following the way of Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and teaching of Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. Since Ādam ‘alayhi s-salām until our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم all Prophets is same teaching. What they are teaching? They are teaching good thing. First teaching to not be looking for material, for it is too clear, this for people… We have material and spiritual. The important thing – spiritual one. Material one also you can look but it is not teaching for to follow this. Material it will be finish but spiritual one it will be not dying. Material body dying but spiritual continuing. And this is what it is important. To improve our spiritual – this is what whole Prophets since Ādam ‘alayhi s-salām until Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and after awliyā’u Llāh, mashāyikh, they was teaching until Mawlānā Shaykh also.
Mawlānā Shaykh he was special. We cannot find, maybe hundred year you cannot find such holy and great awliyā’u Llāh. But al-ḥamdu liLlāh that he is humble. And he was teaching us every goodness. The first one – humbleness, to be with each, everybody and not looking for protocol, not looking for people who are only for high class people. Each, every kind of people he was looking because he knowing this is creature from Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla. Not looking for their outside. Only looking for inside. Which one coming, he accept him and he treat him very good, very soft, and very mercy. Mercy to make him to come to way of light. Second thing, not looking for collecting for dunyā, no. It is, it was not his aim. His aim to look for ākhirah. But if they was bring for him, also he was not interesting. Distributing for people also. Here very important thing – for not to use his for dunyā, for material, to be look for benefit from anybody – “this he is rich man, maybe I can get benefit from him.” This is never Mawlānā’s thinking. It was and it is for example for his murīd and for other people also.
He was star, al-ḥamdu liLlāh, like Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم what he صلى الله عليه وسلم said for his companions. He is also same – you can follow him and you will be find good way. And for this we are saying al- ḥamdu liLlāh. Many people here can attending for his this blessed event because this event… he is leave this world but he is bodily… he leave his world. As we said, his body died but his spiritual spirit soul still looking and going more stronger for around this world for his follower and for who are they are not his follower. And we are thanking Allāh جل جلاله we are not going away from his way. We are strongly staying there. This not from ourself – from His جل جلاله mercy, His جل جلاله blessed, because many people, not many people, some people unfortunately their foot it is not very strong there. Some of them run away, some of them claiming something. It is not important.
The important for us, for people, who are coming here and who are not coming here but they are also like to be here, Allāh جل جلاله reward them also – because here, of course if everybody coming here, we whole Lefke not enough for them. So one year this people coming, other year others, other year other people. Who are not coming it is good for them and the intention also good. Allāh جل جلاله reward them for their intention also and Allāh جل جلاله reward you for your coming here for give your love for your murshid Mawlānā Sulṭānu l-Awliyā’ Shaykh Nāẓim al-Ḥaqqānī. Allāh جل جلاله bless his soul and he keep us under his way. And this is there is fitnah around for people. From shayṭān this fitnah from shayṭān. Not shayṭān not happy even to be two people together. He like them to be to separate, split.
So al-ḥamdu liLlāh we are thanking Allāh جل جلاله and asking to be together in this way. Of course we are knowing nobody can fill his place but his order and Allāh جل جلاله life, life law – hayat kanunu – rules of life. So we must be in this way. In shā’a Llāh, Mawlānā he was saying about Mahdī ‘alayhi s-salām: each day we are feeling really very strongly it is coming more near and more near because there is more oppression for Muslim, for believer more and more. Each day it coming more. Even time of Namrūd, time of Fir‘awn not, it was not like this. So, in shā’a Llāh, it is very near what Mawlānā Shaykh said. In shā’a Llāh we, with his bless, we be with Sayyidinā Mahdī and Sayyidinā ‘Īsá ‘alayhi s-salām, in shā’a Llāh.
Wa min Allāhi t-tawfīq, al-Fātiḥah.
