Shaykh Mehmet Adil Al-Haqqani, Sohbet of the 23rd 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-awwalīna 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, madad.

Ṭarīqatunā ṣ-ṣuḥbah wa l-khayru fi l-jam‘iyyah. Our ṭarīqah orders us to be together in an assembly and sohbet.
What does Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla order us? Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm. “Inna Llāha ya’muru bil-‘adli wal-iḥsāni wa ītā’i dhī l-qurbá wa yanhá ‘ani l-faḥshā’i wal-munkari walbaghyi ya‘iẓukum la‘allakum tadhakkarūna.” (16:90). Allāh orders goodness and justice, to take care of relatives, orders all kinds of goodness. The religion of Islām is Allāh’s order. It is whatever He (jj) orders. He never orders badness. He tells us to stay away from it. Now in the end of times we see a lot of groups in the world, who claim to be Muslims. None of them keep this order. They do the opposite but say “We are Muslims”, they tell people, “this is Islām”. Non-Muslims are happy about it – They say “Look this is Islām. Islām is a bad religion, wild religion. It orders badness.” It is all lies. It has nothing to do with it. In Allāh’s Book, Islām orders goodness with the word of Allāh. Islām never orders badness – shayṭān orders that, shayṭān and his followers follow their ego.

In the old times most people – Muslims, Christians lived together in the Islamic world. There was tolerance in Islamic world. But non-Muslim countries never had Muslim communities. They either forced them to change their religion, killed them, or they had to run away. In the Islamic world it continues the same way since the time of the Prophet (saw). During that time, people, who saw the beauty of Islām, who understood it was the right religion, Christians and Jews, converted to Islām because they were also expecting the Prophet (saw). Allāh gave their hearts guidance. They were converting because of small things. One man, his daughter heard about Islām. Love of Allāh and Islām entered her heart and she insisted on becoming a Muslim. But the man was not Muslim. He didn’t want her to be a Muslim. He was sorry, “How will my daughter be a Muslim?” Whereas the reality is it is the continuation of the same religion.

No matter how much he talked, it had no effect. Then a mu’adhdhin came to the mosque nearby. His voice was so ugly, a crow is like a sparrow compared to him. He started calling adhān. His daughter changed her mind in one week. She began to dislike Islām. “What is this? They said “adhān.” What adhān is this?” “He calls people to pray in the mosque.” “If it is like this, there is no need. ” Out of happiness, her father took two sacks of gold and went to the mu’adhdhin. “Take it. May Allāh be pleased with you. You did a good job, you saved us.”

It is the same now, people, who say they are Muslims and think they are doing good for Islām, they are discrediting Islām knowingly or unknowing. They make people escape from Islām.

Islām is beauty, goodness – nothing else. Anyone, who says something else is a liar, hypocrite, they follow their ego. Allāh doesn’t order anything other than goodness, mercy. Allāh creates various excuses to forgive people. They insist that everyone will go to hell. May Allāh give them good understanding.

Allāh (awj), in our Ṭarīqah to make ṣuḥbah and to be with good people. And it is essence of Islām, Allāh ordered the āyah, every Jum‘ah we read this, “Inna Llāha ya’muru bil-‘adli wa liḥsāni wa ītā’i dhī l-qurbá wa yanhá ‘ani l-faḥshā’i wa l-munkari wa l-baghyi ya‘iẓukum la‘allakum tadhakkarūna” (16:90) Allāh orders all goodness, justice to be with family, to be with friends, to be with good people, to be mercy for people. And He prevent to oppress people, to take anything from people, to make to be tyrant on people. This is forbidden in Islām. And who is saying another thing it is from themselves, from shayṭān.

Shayṭān can show you black one as white one and it is his cheating people. But for Islām never be wrong, or ordering anything wrong. Ordering everything good, everything right, everything beautiful; every nice thing, it is order of Allāh for people. To be happy here and hereafter -this is order of Allāh. But these days there’s many different groups. They are showing Islām as the worst religion. These people and, there’s unfortunately, we can say here – who are not in Islām, all now in this time in secret or appearance, they are attacking Islām. And it is play of shayṭān. They are controlled by shayṭān, these who are attacking Islām. And these people who are claiming who are Muslims, and they real Muslims and doing the worst for human being, before [not just] human being, for Muslims they are doing the worst. These people are helping these non-believer people to… because people…

Allāh make Islām like from habit of human beings – Fiṭratu l-Islām (their nature). In everyone there is Islām until … All children they have their Islām. After when they’re growing up their family they change them. But normally for all human beings, their Islām is inside (innate) and they like to be Islām, and it is very big afraid from non-Muslim people to be [that] their follower becoming Islām. And they find these people to make more people and saying “Islām, as you are saying monster, afraid.” And it was like this, before in old times also. Islām and non-Muslims they were living in Muslim countries together. And they have rights, more than Muslim even in our country. Non-Muslim under Muslim Sulṭān, they have everything free for them, worshipping, doing their court, doing their customs – everything free for them. They were living together in peace with Muslims. But it was for non-Muslim countries, it was not like this at all. You cannot find anything in non-Muslim country, even they change by force religion, even they killed them, even they take them out from their country, exile. They make this for millions, for Muslims and for even Christians who are not following them and for Jewish also, they throw all of them. But Muslim it is country, since Prophet (saws) they have special situation. And they can be free how they like to be.

And this time many of these non-Muslims they’re interested about Islām, many of them become Muslim also. Because Islām it is not different from Christianity or Jewish, Judaism – it is the same. It coming from same place, one after one coming. So many of them were becoming Muslim. And once, one rich man non-Muslim he has a daughter and she is interested about Islām. And when asking, asking, she was nearly becoming Muslim. She was very happy to be Muslim. And this man he was very sad about this, he bring priest, he bring scholar from his religion to tell this girl this is not good, this is our religion better. And she was insisting. In that time there was a mosque near there they come a new mu’adhdhin, calling for prayer mu’adhdhin, adhān, 5 times a day. And his voice, he was so terrible – so it is crow it is nice bird comparing to him. He beginning 1, 2, 3, and she was asking “what is this?” They said “adhān, they are calling for prayer the Muslim Mosque.” She said “what this man like this, I don’t want to be anymore Muslim.” She finished, and her father he was very happy. He bring two bags full of gold and give it to this mu’adhdhin – “thank you very much, you’ve done for me the best thing. Take this for you.”

And nowadays our people are exactly like this. They’re making people to run away. Even Muslim they try some of them to run away from these people also. Allāh gives them good understanding. But the important thing here to say – Islām only ordering nice things. It is religion of mercy, and Allāh (awj) He wants people to be in safe, specially for ākhirah, and He forgives for He has big forgiveness for everybody and He not like these people what they are doing, showing Allāh not forgiving anybody. Allāh He is forgive. He said 100 times you can do wrong I also 100 times I forgive you. This is our Lord, the Most Merciful. al-ḥamdu liLlāh, Allāh make these people to understand this, to not be, to make a little bit head not like a rock to be like human being head, in shā’ Allāh

Wa min Allāhi t-tawfīq.Al-Fātiḥah.
