Hadrat Shaykh Muhammad Mehmet Adil 7 April 2016/29 Jumadal Akhira 1437 Sabah Namaz, Akbaba Dargah

Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh,

Auzu Billahi Minashaytanir Rajeem. Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, Wassalatu Wassalamu ala Rasulina Muhammadin Sayyidul Awwalin wal Akhirin, Madad Ya Rasulallah, Madad Ya As’habi RasuLillah, Madad Ya Mashayikhina, Sheykh Abdullah Daghestani, Sheykh Nazim al-Haqqani. Dastur. Tariqatunas sohba, wal khayru fil jamiyya.

Allah bless, Inshallah the month of Rajab enters tonight. Tonight is the holy night of Raghaib. May it be blessed for us all. Hereby this year was good that seclusion starts tonight, with the first of Rajab. May it be blessed for us all.

Our Holy Prophet (SAW) would also go up to Hira and stay for quite some time, sometimes for a month and sometimes about two months, worshipping alone. He would think of Allah (JJ) and not mingle amongst people. There are many people who will seclude themselves from people and elude worldly work, asking for the himmat of our Holy Prophet (SAW), and enter to be with Allah (JJ) for 40 days, to practice and train the ego Inshallah in this khalwat1. There are also people outside. May Allah bless it for them all.

This is a need. Everybody has to do it once in a lifetime in the Naqshbandi tariqa. Those who cannot do it, then they will make them do it in the grave. Inshallah it will be useful for all humanity. We are entering there not to enlarge the ego but to kill the ego Inshallah. Everybody knows that too. May Allah accept it and may Allah help us. Our ego is large. You cannot leave it. You cannot leave it free. We need to always be thoughtful and never give it a chance.

Inshallah, may we also imitate the mashayikh2 and may the 40 days pass easily. When our mashayikh did seclusion sometimes they would do it for years. Our shaykh, Hazrat Shaykh Abdullah Daghestani did five years nonstop, without giving any breaks, at Güneyköy here – it used to be called Reshadiya. He did five years khalwat there.

They did six months nonstop of khalwat in Madina with our shaykh. Hazrat Shaykh Abdullah Daghestani and our shaykh, Hazrat Shaykh Nazim did nonstop six months khalwat at Madina. They did it in Baghdad. They did it in many places. Of course, their khalwat was much harder. Ours is imitation. May Allah accept it, as this much is also enough for us. May Allah make us successful. May it be a means for goodness Inshallah. 1. Seclusion 2. Shaykhs

We will enter khalwat with Hazrat Shaykh Adnan Inshallah today. He, Mashallah enters every year, the holy one. Let us see whether we enter after this or if we do not, Allah knows. But may Allah accept this and turn our worship into truth Inshallah. Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq. Al-Fatiha.
