Shaykh Mehmet Adil Al-Haqqani, Sohbet of the 20th of July, 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 Rasūlinā Muḥammadin Sayyidi l-awwalīna 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-Dāghistāni, Shaykh Muḥammad Nāẓim al-Ḥaqqāni. Madad. Ṭarīqatunā ṣ-ṣuḥbah wa l-khayru fi l-jam‘iyyah.

What advice did our Prophet (sas) give us? Our Prophet (saw) advises all goodness. When you read a ḥadīth, in Arabic, you have to say it as it is. We don’t remember exactly. Let’s say it in Turkish. “O son, from morning till evening, from evening till morning, don’t leave goodness. Don’t think badness about anyone. You should do this.” says the Prophet (saw). When you do this, you are a Muslim. “Al-muslimu man salima l-muslimūna min lisānihi wa yadihi” We couldn’t say it properly. It means a Muslim doesn’t harm, people are safe from his tongue and his hand. This is a Muslim. This is what the Prophet (saw) says.

A Muslim should never think badness for anyone. He shouldn’t harm anyone, he should think like this from morning till evening, from evening till morning; thinking “I shouldn’t harm anyone, I shouldn’t give pain to anyone”. He should keep this good manner from morning till evening, from evening till morning. This is a Muslim. A Muslim is someone, who doesn’t harm anyone. If you obey the Prophet’s (saw) order, you’ll be with him (saw), he’ll (saw) love you. If you think of harming people, from morning till evening, from evening till morning, the Prophet (saw) doesn’t love you, Allāh doesn’t love you.

Ask goodness. Allāh ordered us goodness, beauty. If you do good, you’ll find good. If all your life passes with goodness, hereafter also will be in goodness You’ll be with the Prophet (saw) in the hereafter. If you think badness in the world you’ll be with shayṭān, nothing else. Who is happy when people go astray? Shayṭān is happy. Good people aren’t happy. When somebody makes a mistake, goes astray, good people are sad, they aren’t happy. “These people also went astray, how nice. These are bad people.” Nobody says this. His heart burns and says; “We thought they were good people, why did they do something like this?” Good people become so sad. Shayṭān is happy, celebrates.

We want everyone in the way of Allāh, we want them to do goodness. This is the Prophet’s (saw) order. Think goodness for everyone.

Prophet (saws) he ordered us every good thing. There is ḥadīth I read. In Arabic when you say ḥadīth, you must say it exactly what you write. Because ḥadīth, if you change, you cannot fix it. So it is for Arabic you must say it correct but for to make it English or other language, you can say -“it is something like this.” Qur’ān, even you make it wrong it is not like ḥadīth, because Qur’ān it is preserved so you cannot change.

So maybe sometimes making wrong when you read you say something wrong but it is no matter, correct. But for ḥadīth…

So we are saying we read ḥadīth, Prophet (saws) saying “O boy if you can to be from morning to evening, and from evening to morning thinking only good, do this.” This is small ḥadīth but it is very important. Every ḥadīth important, but it is also… When people thinking it is enough to be good Muslim to be good human being for whole life. Only we like and to think from morning to evening, to look what is the good thing, what is, how to make Prophet (saws) happy, how it is good thing to do. It is important, and from night to morning also to think only good thing also, very important thing. Makes ourself to be a pure, real Muslim. Muslim meaning – Prophet (saws) – who makes people to be safe from his hand, from his tongue, from everything – no harm from Muslim.

Muslim meaning peaceful man. Not like what people now, when they say Muslim they are thinking he is beast. No, it is opposite, it is meaning peaceful one, Muslim. And Prophet (saws) teaching us to do this – not to think any bad thing for people, not to do any bad thing for people. He said do this if you can do, because it is also not easy to do for everybody, but we try, in shā’a Llāh. And we are happy to see good people and to think good thing for people. We are not happy to see bad people, bad action from people who are claiming they are believer or Muslim or other… Others, we don’t care about them because we know them. But this what we care more, and we are sorry for them, who are people claiming and making bad things. We are not feeling happiness for this. We are not happy to see “O this man he become bad man, we must be happy.” No we cannot be.

Even in Islām also no envious. Some maybe envious people they are happy for this, but we are not. Never teaching of Prophet (saws), teaching of Awliyā’u Llāh, ṭarīqah. Only to be happy to save people from bad way, from bad thing, from hell. This is what they try to do. Who is happy with people who are not in right way, leaving right way, going wrong way? Shayṭān only is happy. He is very, very happy. Every time somebody going out from right way to wrong way, he makes…celebrates. And… who following him, they are also happy. Muslims cannot be happy with bad thing or to see bad people. We are happy to save all human beings from bad way. We like them to be in safe and blessed way. This is Prophet’s (saws) order – “to think good from morning to evening, from evening to morning.” Don’t think any bad thing for people, only be happy when you save somebody or to see good thing happen for people who are out of way to come into right way. Allāh help us to help people to come in right way in shā’a Llāh.

Wa min Allāhi t-tawfīq, al-Fātiḥah.
