Ṭarīqatunā ṣ- ṣuḥbah wa l-khayru fi l-jam‘iyyah.
Our existence in this world is by Allāh’s جل جلاله will. Allāh’s جل جلاله destiny put us in this time. There were many people and many nations who lived before. The best of them was the Nation of our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, Ummatu Muḥammad صلى الله عليه وسلم. Who is from that Nation has received a huge favour. But who doesn’t accept it rejects that great favour. To follow our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم is a big favour in dunyā too. It is a privilege, in fact. To be from the Nation of our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم is the biggest honor. Who says “I don’t accept it” is not considered as from the Nation. You can’t force anyone. Because when someone rejects an offer, he becomes ungrateful. He carries his punishment.
To be from the Ummah of Muḥammad صلى الله عليه وسلم, as we said, to live under his command… People who lived in places where his صلى الله عليه وسلم khulafā’ ruled, lived good lives. Because the first order of our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم is justice. When there is justice, there is beauty. Everything is good, there is no oppression. And the second order is mercy. There is mercy and justice for people who live in that country. There is no discrimination. There is no favoring Muslims by dividing people into Muslims and non-Muslims. Besides, when such a thing happens, more attention is paid صلى الله عليه وسلم so that the rights of non-Muslims are not taken. Therefore, the khulafā’ of our Prophet and Sultans lived like this for centuries. And as a result, the Ottomans still have khalīfah. Under their rule, people lived their best days, Muslims and the Islamic world.
Because khulafā’ didn’t take their positions for fun. They sat there for the Nation of our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. They sat there to raise the word of Allāh جل جلاله. They were humble and merciful. When they gave salām on Fridays to the people, people used to show respect by saying, “Long live, Pādishāh.” And after that, Sultans used to have it said: “Long live, Pādishāh,” because it’s good that they live. And in order that there is no pride in their egos, they would ask them to say another sentence like – “Don’t get proud. There is Allāh جل جلاله above you.” It continued for centuries, based on this. They were never proud. They were humble. And the most important is that they were murīds to their beloved shaykhs. They obeyed and loved them. Many times even the greatest Sultans, like Fātiḥ Sulṭān Meḥmed and Sulṭān Sulaymān, went to their dergahs and said, “We don’t want this world. We want ākhirah. We don’t want this throne. We want to be servants in this dergah.” Most of them said so. But of course, the shaykh’s order was: “Your duty is there. Go and carry your duty.” Otherwise, they didn’t desire salṭanāt, money and power.
They ruled under such conditions. They were wonderful people who followed the way of our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. Therefore, to be Muslim and to live under a Muslim ruler in justice, to live under a ruler who knows Allāh جل جلاله and accepts our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, is a great favour. Of course, صلى الله عليه وسلم there are few people like this in the current world conditions. It is very rare. May Allāh return those old days. May He جل جلاله raise Muslims. May they live under the rule of khulafā’, in shā’a Llāh. Those days are beautiful because there is justice for everyone and everybody is pleased. But of course, shayṭān says the opposite. He oppresses them but oppression cannot last. The truth will come out at last. May their maqāms increase, in shā’a Llāh.
Today we are living in this world. Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla create us and we are living [in a] time, we didn’t want to be here, but Allāh جل جلاله He جل جلاله doing what He جل جلاله like to do. And we thank Him جل جلاله to be this time we are living, to be from Nation of Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. To be Nation of Prophet Muḥammad صلى الله عليه وسلم it is the biggest favour for humanity. Who accept to be from his Nation, he is lucky. Who not accept, he is unlucky. Because this chance Allāh جل جلاله give for whole human being, to be from Nation of Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. But who are not like to be, also Allāh جل جلاله He not let him do. And he is unlucky because to be Nation of Prophet .صلى الله عليه وسلم honour for human being. All good manner, whole good thing, in this to be his Nation.
And now there is shayṭān nation. They are making exactly opposite what Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم saying. Every dirty thing, every disgusting thing, they are making as it is nature for human being and it must be like this. And Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم he said take this even first order for Muslim for believer to be clean. And this people they are dirty from top until the feet. And to be his Nation, Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم he give every good thing for human being from his time and after until Ottoman. Last Khalīfah they was ruling by Sulṭān, Khalīf of Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, and they was ruling by justice and mercy for whole human, whole people who are living in their country. Not making difference between Muslim or non-Muslim or believer, non-believer. They have, everybody they have own right, everything. Even they was more sensitive if any non-believer for his right, to get his right, not to be oppressed in this country and they was living very freely and they can do everything the believer Muslim they doing. Sometimes they do, can have more freedom from them and Sulṭān Khalīf they was living for helping and serving and to follow Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم order. They are not coming for enjoying.
Many of Sulṭān they was coming to, because they was very humble also – they not say, “We are Sulṭān. Nobody top of us.” No. Most of them they have shaykh, murshid, guidance. They follow him. Many times they come to zāwiyah, dergāh for shaykh, and Sulṭān coming and he said for shaykh: “O Shaykh I don’t want any saltanate, any fortune, any high position. I leave all this. I’m, I’m coming to your dergāh. I will be derwīsh here.” Many of them like this coming. But of course their Shaykh they said, “We have many derwīsh here. Your place to guide this and we are support you spiritually to be justice and to help people.” This is what they was doing. And when they was greeting them, they go to place they say: “Long life Sulṭān. Oh long life Sulṭān,” shouting people and the army, to not be proud, they was after this they say: “Don’t be proud. There is Allāh جل جلاله He is bigger than you. O Sulṭān don’t be proud, Allāh جل جلاله bigger than you.” This was order from Sulṭān to people after when they say, “Long life Sulṭān,” to not be like pharaoh, not be like Namrūd or to like tyrant. Just to remember he is, he is only servant for Allāh جل جلاله
This what was doing and was like paradise because when you have justice, you are happy. When no justice in place, it is like hell. And nowadays most of world unjustice. Very few place they have some sincere governor, sincere president they are looking for helping people everywhere. Allāh جل جلاله make this people to be in our place because many we see all around us, since after Ottoman, they was only fear, blood, bad thing. Tyrants coming on them. This is unlucky for them. They must, we must ask for to send us one to make justice as it is full of oppression. In shā’a Llāh, he is coming. Looking very soon, in shā’a Llāh, Sayyidinā l-Mahdī ‘alayhi s-salām.
Wa min Allāhi t-tawfīq, al-Fātiḥah.
