  Introduction to Sufism

Auzubillahiminashaytan nirajim, bismillahiramahnrahim

Before speaking anything, we are asking support from our Creator who has created us. And we are asking to escape from that one who is our enemy, shaytan, to His shelter, to the Creator’s shelter.

My father (rahimtuallah alahi) who passed away, he gave me advice, and today I’m breaking that advice. He says to me, “my son, don’t be stand in the presence of elderly to speak to them. Elderly people they are always more wiser than you, they have seen the sun before you. You must learn from them.” I’m not speaking here to teach you something, before most of you I’m seeing, you are more older than me. You have seen the sun before me. But because we have been given the invitation to come, to speak about thematter which I have born and grow up in it. I just like to say a couple words. We will exchange, we will understand, that we have no difference.


Auzubillahiminashaytan nirajim, bismillahiramahnrahim.

Auzubillahiminashaytan nirajim, we are running away from shaytan, trying to escape from evil and bismillahiramahnrahim we are escaping to our Creator, to His shelter. And we are asking our Creator to keep shaytan evil away from us. We are not declaring war to him, but we are asking to the Owner of that one to keep him away from us. When that one is away from us, then we will all say, He has created us from one male and female. Everyone one of us, when we go down to the roots we will find our roots goes to the one male, one female.

In His presence, in the Divine presence there is no separation. There is no different nationality, different races or different religion. But we, and so many who came before us, with so many different ideas, separated. And continuously especially this last century, we are in top speed separate ourselves from each other.

You all know and believe Adam AS, the first man. First man, and first prophet to all mankind. And continuously, from that time, until the Last Prophet, the Seal of the Prophet, Muhammad alayhi salam wa tu salam. Between that one, and the Last Prophet Muhammad alayhi salam wa tu salam, according to our knowledge, that coming from the Divine Presence, 124,000 Prophets have been sent down to earth to mankind. In different times, to different tribes, to different nations. Some prophets they only represent small groups. Some prophets they have been send to larger communities and to different nations. Of course from among these, there are very holy ones, high ones, like Prophet Ibrahim, Abraham AS, he was the father of all main religion, which is Judaism, Christianity, Islam. He is representing these three religions. From one of his son, Yacub, Jacob AS comes the bani Israil, the Children of Israel, today calling Jews, different tribes. And from the other son Ismael, comes what we called today, Islam, people who follows Muhammad SAWS. From that tribe coming, according to our knowledge, and understanding and our faith, according to what Islam and the book of Quran is saying, Jesus, Isa AS, one of the holiest Prophet that God has created. He is sent down to mankind, to show them right direction again. Because centuries passing people are losing their way, following their own ego, their own understanding. Losing the way. So God with his mercy, sent His Prophets to put us back to the main road. To teach us what it is that He want from us, and how we are going to worship Him. So all prophets came, teaching the whole mankind one thing first, all of you have been created from one Lord, same one who have created you, your fathers, who has passed and who will come in the future. Not only the men, but everything else that is existing, he is the Creator of all.

All prophets came to represents that One, to speak for that One’s behalf, to teach us what is that One wants from us. What is our duty here in this world? How are we to live this life? And how do we go back to our own original house. This is our waiting place, our original place is the paradise that we have come down from, and we have to go back there. Everyone, you like each other or not, you are going back there (Shaykh Efendi smiles) we have to find a ground here to learn to start loving each other, understanding each other, because we are going back to the paradise.

The mankind has been sent down for that. Not for this world, they have been created for that paradise, not for this world. So this world is separating us. So many difficulties, so many different things standing in our way, we are separating ourselves. Especially like I said, for the last one century, the Mankind from Judaism, to Christianity, to Islam, and to almost all men, lost their direction. Because in reality, we have left what we really believed in. We have left their footsteps. And we follow our own ego, and we follow our own desires. So shaytan is there spreading evil and whispering to our ego and is making us to become enemy. In reality, no religion is making people to become enemy. Every religion is teaching people how to become a servant to their Lord.

DIVINE ORDER: Inspiration of the Prophets

We all have been created for the service of our Lord. As I hear couple of things that have been said here, and I see certain protocol that is going on here, which everywhere we have protocols. That is reminding us that our Lord also put a protocol on us, how to live in this world. When we start searching that protocol, the beginning of our Creation, how we descend down from the paradise to the world. What is the expectation? What is it that we have to do in this world, how to go back to our origin place, our home, back to paradise.

First man, and first woman, which we can say, our great great grandfather, and great great grandmother. Adam AS and Hawa, whatever, my pronunciation maybe is a little different from yours, but we all know it is the same one. So many people said they made mistake in paradise, so they have been send down to this world as a punishment. But Divine Order has to take its course and the destiny has to happen. The Creator made them to move that way for them to be sent down to earth. Because Allah SWT, our Creator has created man to be His deputies on this earth. So the first man He sent down, Adam to be His deputy with his wife. Then from them, children started coming.

Some said our great grandmother, Hawa, she was pregnant over 200 times. And every time when she was giving birth, she had twins. One boy, one girl every time. So that they start multiplying. When the children they start growing, and they start becoming independent to themselves, and looking around and trying to live in this world, which was new to them also. The Order is going to the first man Adam AS,saying “you are not only their father now, you are also their Prophet, their Guide. You must speak to them, and you must guide them. And you must teach them what is right and what is wrong.” So when our father was putting his children in front of him, and he was speaking to them, and he was trying to tell them what is right and what is wrong. In this world, what is to do, and what is not to do. What is it to be obedient to Allah, and what is it not to be. Some of his children, they accepted it. And some of them, they became disobedient to him.

So through the history coming down. Those children, multiplying and going to different parts of the world. And becoming different tribes. Becoming different nations, using different languages. They all needed other guides. So the God start sending other prophets to them, from among them, showing them what to do.

So people they always needed guide in reality, to show them how to live in this world. And that guide has to be one of their kind, to be able to sit, to talk, to tell them. That’s why the God sends prophets. They are not like us, they have high station in the Divine Presence. But they are made up from the same material as we. This way we will have familiarity with them. We will be able to sit and talk with them. Otherwise, God has the power to send us, not the prophets, but the angels. Instead of giving prophets, sending angels to us. So many people today running, searching, reading books here and there, and say, “look what the book says.”

Muslim they said, ”go to the Quran,” Christians they said, “go to the Bible,” Jews they said, “go to the Old Testament, New Testament.” But then we said to them, “where is your testament? Why are you not going to your own book? Your book is here. (Shaykh Effendi pointed to his heart.) Judge things according to what is right, what is wrong. You are printing millions of books. Everyone has books now. We broke the protocol because we go through the books now. We don’t accept any authority, we don’t accept anybody who has the knowledge to speak to us. To accept, to sit down and think what he is speaking, is it right or wrong? Is it fitting me or not? Or is it fitting to my ego or not?

We have that problem today because we all know how to read and write. We said we can go directly to the source and especially the Muslims, when they take the Quran, and they open it, and they start reading, by themselves, and they start putting their own commentary in it. They finding themselves on the other side and fighting with the mankind. But when we are taking that book, and we said, “this book didn’t really got sent down to us. It was sent down to that Prophet SAWS. And that Prophet SAWS through his saying, teach people how to live that book. So for us, we must take him first, his lifestyle. We must take him as a guide, that time we will be able to understand the real meaning, what is coming there for us and for all people, because that is also mentioned, all people, all other religions, is mentioned in that book.

So, so many become blind, they close their eyes to that, and they become enemy to each other. God didn’t created us to be enemy to each other. He is ordering to us, that he has created us, he has made us to different nation, different races, different parts of the world, to find one another, and to learn and exchange knowledge from each other. And make it better to our life and to prepare better places for our children that is coming.

THE MIND OF THE SUFI: Remembers there is No God but God

Sufism, when Prophet Muhammad SAWS who is also emigrating from Mecca to Medinah and they entered into a cave with his companion Abu Bakr Siddik RA. He gave secrets to his heart saying, “this is what you have to practice through the heart. And you will progress yourself, you will clean yourself, you will be having enough energy and power fighting against to the evil forces that is surrounding you.”

Of course, as I said, in Sufism, our teaching, and our masters, what they are teaching to us. If you are walking in the street, sufi, if there is a stone in the street, he cannot kick that stone. He should show respect to bend down to take it and to put it on the side, thinking, some other people come, they may step on it and fall down. It may be a blind man, he cannot see, so you move that stone. But you cannot move that stone, kicking it to aside, you have to bend down, remember your creator’s name, taking it and putting it aside. That is the main teaching in Islam about Sufism. And that’s how Sufism they should be. Not also today’s sufi, they have swords and guns and everything in their hands going, cutting. That doesn’t fit to Sufism also.

But because we don’t fit to that, that original system is good, and is working for all mankind who is following the footstep of that. Depending on what kind of master, what kind of teacher you have, and how strict he is with those matters. Which my master, he is a very holy man, Shaykh Nazim Muhammad al Hakkani. He is a very humble man, he is a very beloved man. Lovely man, but when it comes to tricking, fooling, testing, and training the ego, he is very hard. He was very hard on us in that matter. We loved him for that, because he was very hard on us. And if he wasn’t, with the character that I have, I could have been a terrorist today. But he was very hard on us, and now we are afraid to touch an ant and kill an ant, and to say, “this is God’s creation. He has created it, we cannot touch it, we cannot destroy it.”

So of course, so many books writing about Sufism, so many things coming out that Sufism came in 800s, or after Prophet SAWS passed 400, 500, 700 years. That is through Prophet SAWS and his companions that were living Sufism, without name, their lifestylewas Sufi. They were living Sufism. They left us, and all those people who came after, which you have just mentioned earlier, Mevlana Jalaludin Rumi, he is one of the main pillars that the whole west knows. Shaykh Muiddin ibn Arabi also, he is one of the figures that the West knows. And they respect those ones who live Sufism in their time, in their own selves. When you go to Konya, today’s Turkey, that time in that city there were Christians, Jews, and Muslims and this place was open to everyone, and everyone would be going over there, and everyone was worshipping, everyone was doing according to the way they believe they were worshipping, it didn’t separate them. And when he passed away, so many people they were running who was going to carry his coffin, because of the respect, the Jews, Christians and the Muslims they run. Of course today, we are not finding, there are some people like that, they are hiding themselves to the corner, and the street is left to those tyrants, go around to tyrannize people. There is a divine secret in that. And the God, Allah SWT is ordering to us to good ones, to be true ones. First, to test and check our own selves, to make ourselves to be good ones. Then to try to reach to others without separating.

Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi

Constant job, first is to please their Lord. Priority is to please their Lord. Priority is to worship as much as they can, and to not to have empty time. And to remember their God through their hearts remembering through His Names, His Divine Names. And sitting together, and praying together, and not having so much of worldly pleasures and treasures to running after. But the main aim is to be able to make your Lord to be happy with you. To prepare yourself for the hereafter life, because this life, it is only passing. Of course you have to work, to earn your living, but you shouldn’t go crazy, to say “I have this room here, it is not enough for me,” you have to find a way to stop yourself saying, “this is enough for me, I can live here. I don’t have to have a palace.”

So with that time now, running, making materialism and running after materialism, and to become capitalist. You spend your time with your Lord, remembering him more. More you are making zikr, more you remembering, more you go to seclusion. And you will be able to reach to one step in this world, one step in the hereafter, so you will become a bridge. Preparing yourself to go out from this life, when your time comes, quickly and easily. That is the main teaching in Sufism for a man to try to build himself, how to look, and what to expect, and what to send to the other life. Because as I said earlier, this world, it is the ground for the paradise, whatever we are planting here, that is what we are going to collect on the other side.

Sufism, it is what we called tasawwuf. Tarikat means the ways, the ways, the roads that is taking people from this world to ahirat. That is the real meaning of the word tarikat. Tarikat, it is what you called those people, like we are following the tarikat of Nakshiband. Nakshibandi are that one, tarikat is the way, and Nakshibandis, those are the ones who is concentrating on the heart. And constantly working on that heart. So other tarikats, they concentrating on going on seclusion, trying to open the veils, but we are trying to concentrate on our heart, to put seal into our heart. The seal first to the Lord, the Creator’s Name, then to understand His secret creature.

So Sufism coming from that time, Ahla suffa, Ahla suffa, those people that they were around the Prophet SAWS, near the Prophet SAWS’s House. And behind that Prophet SAWS’s House, they were sitting there all night long, they were praying, they were reciting Quran, they were learning. All night. Because nighttime is very special in Islam. You must sacrifice your sleep, and you must get up 3 o’clock, 4 o’clock to be with your Lord when everyone is sleeping. So those people, that is what they were doing. They called them Ahla Suffa. Those people they have cleaned themselves, they are pure. That is what the real meaning is. Tasawwuf. The people who is purifying themselves, who is reaching to perfection, to the perfect station. The master of that time, he and my master, they reached to that perfection. They are looking, because everyone is given secret. Everyone, they have Divine Secrets in their hearts. And the masters, they looking how to bring that secret out. How to polish it, and to present it. It’s like diamond, we go all the way down, to take that big rock, big stone. You came out, cutting it into pieces, then you have small diamonds. You polishing, cutting it to become beautiful. So people they carry on their head, they neck and their hands. We, as human, all have secret. What is your secrets? So many people saying, this is what they are saying, “Jesus is carrying Divine Secret, God’s Secret.” You are carrying that too, I m carrying it. That soul, that spirit is giving to you is coming from your Creator, this body doesn’t mean anything. Soon as that spirit comes out, this body falls down, and the body you loved so much, but they said take it and bury it under the ground, because it’s going to smell. We cannot put it in the house. The real secret is to look at that spirit, and to polish it, and to present it. Of course, so many times, when it is more polished, you are going to see. One of our grandshaykh, master, Shaykh Abdullah Daghstani, my fatherwas sat with him, he said to him, “my son, when I look at the forehead of a person, I can tell you how intelligent he is.” So my father looked at him, saying “my shaykh, when you looked at his forehead, and you said how intelligent he is. What about his face?” “His face is his book, whatever is in here (Shaykh Efendi pointed to his heart), is reflected on his face.” Sufis, they try, because they know that there is people looked with a vision, they tried to put a reflection. Because they cannot hide, they cannot cheat anybody. They could lose that sight. To perfect themselves, they looked and they see the divine light.

SUFI SYMBOLOGY: the Prayer Beards, The Turban, the Cane

We are, as a sufis, we are disciplining our own selves. Now we are coming to that part, how sufis are working. Disciplining our own ego and disciplining our own self. We have to do a certain amount of remembrance every day. We cannot just say, I did this much today, tomorrow I don’t have to do. So, for instance, I have to do 10,000 time la ilaha illalah. 10,000 times Allah. This many times giving praising to Prophet (SAWS). This many times declaring the Oneness of our Lord. So now there is so many other things coming in it. So now this, these beards here, it is counted, there is two hundred here. When I go like this one time, I know there is two hundred. Then I pull this aside, so I collected 200 times, now I go again. This is a tool to me. To be able to make my remembrance properly, and exactly that amount.

So if I finished that amount that day, in earlier time, then I am free to do much as I want more. But we are concentrating to do certain amount, we give remembrance to people according to their time. Some people they work 8 hours, they don’t have too much time, we give them less. Some people works 2 hours, they have too much time, we give them more. So that time, the more you do, the more you progress in your own self. Because you cannot cheat yourself, you say, “I have to say la ilaha illalah, la ilaha illalah, la ilaha illalah, this many times. And more you say, in Turkish we say, “if you remember something 40 times, and it will happen to you. If we believe something 40 times every day. It will start happen.” So, what if you are remembering your Lord 100 times, 1000 times, 10,000 times a day. It will make progress on you. So this tasbih, this is what it is.

The turban is representing, as you know, Muslim religion. When we die, they don’t put us in the coffin boxes, to make us to wear suits and tie, to put nice makeup. They put you, they cover you, because it is forbidden to look at the dead person’s face, according to Islam. It comes with a very heaviness after a while. So you wrap him up, the whole body in a white cloth. Which we are hoping and praying, of course that is, in the judgment day, everyone is going to rise from the grave. This world is going to come to an end. First, prophets they are going to rise, then all the other ones they are going to rise to go to judgment place to be questioned what they did in the world. We believe that we are going to be raised up, not naked, but with the cloth that is wrapping us around. The white cloth that is on my head, this is my shrouds, they are going to take this, open it, and wrap me in it, and to bury me with it. So we say, when you are carrying your death cloth on your head, how you are going to think how you are going to bother other people. That is a reminder to you, to be a good one. Not to be a bad one.

Of course different styles, different colors represent different things. I am a traveler, I have no place on this earth. I m travelling, every place is mine. Everywhere I put my feet, it belongs to me. This place belongs to me now. (Shaykh effendi laughs) I m travelling here, I leave from here, take it, have it, some day later I come back and I said it’s mine again. So I m a traveler, anywhere I go, I go with my white turban. And if something happened, and I died, which of course that was in the old days. Today we are just doing because, we are following the tradition. In the old days, people they were coming from central Asia to come to Mecca. In the way they die, their family doesn’t know. They wrapped them up, and they buried them right the way there, where they died. So this is to remind us, remind me, all the time, I’m travelling, and I may die, so it is on my head to bury me. Of course, my friends they are not going to let me be here, they are going everywhere taking me, in the plane, putting more difficulty to me during these days. But it’s a reminder, they are wearing a green turban. Green in Islam representing paradise. And the green is representing their hometown. This is their hometown, they are Americans. This is their hometown, so they are in their hometown. So they are wearing the green turban.

Of course different shapes of hats, covering, cones, and the wrapping the turban, that represents different tarikats, different sufi ways, and different masters. In these days, so many people they are not looking to that. In the old day, when the two sufis, far away they see each other, right the way they know from the figure, the way of their turbans, they know this is Qadiri, this is Nakshibandi, that one is this, belong meaning that they belong to that university, to that teaching high station university. So it’s representing, making people to understand, to look where you learn, which tarikat, which masters. The colors are representing their nationality, which part of the world, which continent they are coming from. Of course in these days, so many doesn’t look at that. And we are not expecting them to look at that. The person likes to wear green, so he chooses to wear green. So many doesn’t like to wear white, because if you are remembering the death, it’s death cloth. (Shaykh Efendi laughs.) So, ‘X’ always likes to wear green, because he wants to remember paradise. But I’m a traveler, I have to wear white. So that is representing that.

The cane is representing, when Adam has been send down from paradise. First man, he is sent down to the earth. He is sent down, and he looked at all the animals around him. The snake that told him, the shaytan evil entered into the snake, and that one is sent down from paradise. The snake was living in paradise, he was very friendly with Adam and Hawa. But shaytan Azzazial, fooled the snake, saying “open your mouth, I m entering inside. I’m speaking to them.” That’s why they got fooled, because they trust the snake, the snake was their friend. But shaytan was speaking through the snake. He is sent out from paradise. And he became an enemy, so Adam looked, says “Oh my Lord, I m your weak servant. You throw me from paradise to this world. I am all alone, you took my wife away, I cannot see, I have no protection. These animals they are ready to attack me. What am I going to do?” So, Lord of Heavens saying, “hold the cane in your hand, and that dog touch his hand. So when he touched to the head of dog. The dog turned around and started barking at the wild animals, and the wild animal ran away. And He Says,“ that cane, hold it, because shaytan is running away from you when are you walking around with that cane.” We believed that, of course, we are trying to carry because we believe every Prophet has that. And we are trying to walk down to the tradition of the Prophet.

THE SUFI PROBLEM: Separation of Spirituality and State

Of course after the 19th century, Sufism has been taking very strong punishment. I hate to say that, but with the help of the western world. In our country, which I said, two years ago, in Turkey, 6 month in jail, because I was sufi, because I was sitting in my own apartment, and I have ten people, we were practicing, we are sitting, remembering God, saying “Allah, Allah.” So the police came, they broke the door, they took us and they put me in jail for six months. They tried to do so many things, to scare us, and because of this turban, this turban is forbidden also in Turkey, and this cloth is forbidden. Because these are, they said these are religious identity. You cannot wear that to walk in the street. So it is not only in Turkey, it is in Egypt, which big saints are coming, Uzebekistan, and all that part of the world that Sufism is strong, that is spreading everywhere, it is banned. But when we are looking and saying “they banned Sufism.” Sufis, in the history, you can never find that the Sufis they did something wrong. Or they ran attacking other Sufis. The groups of Sufis. But you will find, people who you called radical Islamist, they go and attacking others, and they kill and they destroy. We are finding today also, today’s Saudi Arabia is the one who representing radical Islam, which you called wahabism. They are completely against to Sufism. And we are finding the West is supporting them. But the West is not supporting Sufism. Sufism, it is not supported, but it’s banned. So the people they cannot live Sufism openly, so all they have to do, they have to go under the ground. They have to hide themselves. Which today’s Sufism in Turkey, which is still very strong, but they are under the ground, they cannot come above, because they will be jailed, because they are practicing Sufism.

Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi and Sulthanul Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al Haqqani

So when you are finding that one side the government they are forcing you to live the way they want you to live, and you are finding in your heart, your Prophet is saying, “live like this,” you cannot be both, and the Prophet saying to us “as long as you are living in their country, you must obey their laws. So now their laws is forbidding us to live Sufism freely. So if you cannot live Sufism freely, living Sufism, not living it, that means, we are not practicing our religion. What we have to do, we have to go under the ground.

So the mosques are supported by the government. Mosques they are official places. Official places they only speak official words. And when you go to a mosque, the Imam is over there, he is a paid man. He is speaking whatever the paper they give to him, he cannot speak to you whatever every word that Quran is saying. There is the paper you are going to read, you cannot speak your own mind to these people, or your understanding of Islam, you have to speak what he gives to you. So if the rulers, especially, I’m giving, an example from Turkey, if the ruler they are communist idea people, which not believing in God, and I m not accepting. They know they cannot remove the religion, but they have religion under their control. They are teaching people whatever they want, they give you a monthly salary saying, “you are in the payroll, you are going to speak this, you cannot speak anything else.” So that time, we cannot collect the fruits of Sufism now, in these days, it is not possible. Because it is banned. But if they live it, today also for us, not only there, but also in this country. That up to my house, which I called that dergah, which is like a church, because people coming and worshipping. Up to now, so many times, FBI coming non-stop going back and forth, saying “we are coming to see if everything is alright.” So I said, “this is America, take the gun, take the coffee and tea.” (Shaykh Efendi laughs.) Of course, we are not dummy or stupid, we know why they are coming, but we have no problem with the government, we have no problem with the law. We have no problem, because we will learn and we will find a way to live according to those laws.

Today’s government, they don’t like communities. And in Sufism, there is a very high respect to a shaykh. Individual who is following the shaykh, the master, they must consult with that shaykh. What they have to do in their worldly life, and especially when it comes to working. In democracy, you go to the government, you go to the different parties. So now the government they are seeing those figure, those spiritual figures, they take threat with them. Because now there is 100,000 people following me. And they come to me and they said, “shaykh, there is an election, which party should we give our vote?” I said to them, “give it to that party.” So they know the party that I’m going to choose. It’s going to be at least the party that believes in God some way, somehow, they know. I am not going to say to my people to go give the vote to the communist party. So they are finding that time, these are threat to us, because we are not going to come to power. That’s what they did in Russia, they banned everything, which is what the people they called the birthplace of Sufism, it is not the birthplace. But it is the high saints come out from that part. Until today, the Russia is gone, but it is still banned. Because they know that, when it comes to vote, because you are building bridge now between the spirituality, religion and the politics, coming together now. So the shaykh must be a wise man. To understand not only know the worldly matters, but to able to understand how the politics is taking direction, and how to direct people in spirituality, spiritual way. Go and say to a person, “ok, you worked enough, now don’t work anymore, sit here and make zikr. Don’t go, because you have enough money.” How to be able say to other beloved, “honey, don’t sit here, go and work.” So the shaykh he is not only a community leader, he is like a master, a guide to the people, so when the government they are looking, saying, “these shaykhs, they are not letting people to give us the vote, so we must bring them down.” Bringing them down, the whole world is watching, if they are taking you as an individual, the world is watching, the man this watching, that watching. They find it easier to say “ban Sufism,” when you say ban Sufism, automatically the shaykhs is banned, everything is banned. So you want to learn your religion? Go to a church, or go to a mosque and learn it from the person that I appointed for you. Like as I said, if the person is in the payroll he is going to speak what they say to him. I am not in their payroll, I have no fear from anyone. My fear is not the world, I m not expecting anything from you to give me something. I am speaking for my God. And what is my need? My need is one piece of bread for today, I have a cloth, I have a shelter, that is what really my need is. That is what really the community leader, the shaykh, has to worry. But the other ones, they should worry, what they have to do, how they are going to live, how they are going to pay their mortage, this and that. But the shaykh shouldn’t worry with himself, with this kind of things. Should be worry with his people’s problem, to try to solve their problem, if it’s spiritually, if it’s worldly, if it’s mentally, if it’s materialistically, if you are poor, shaykh knows the management, saying to him, “give that much money to this person,” that man must follow, because he has to reach to other. So the shaykh knows, in Turkish we said, “the shaykh is the hand that is taking from,” that’s why have a thing on it, half of you don’t know, but you must know it now. I m just joking about you must know. Mawlana Jalaluddin Rumi, turning like this, they put their hand like that, and their feet like this, one hand is like this, and they are turning like this. It’s turning and it’s building relationship from earth to the paradise. As you know, everything is circling in their own orbit. So when man learns how to circle in his own orbit, he will be able to reach to station. So when Mawlana was holding his hand like that, and putting his hand down, saying, “I’m taking from my Lord, and I’m giving it to mankind. So I m a mitigator between that One and you. So all shaykhs suppose to be like that, but all shaykhs are not like that. So then, we have problem, so the communities they got into trouble. And the government, of course they are never going to like, but I’ll tell you, take that videocassette. If you take that videocassette to a Turkish ambassador, and saying, look what this Turkish guy is saying, they will put an arrest warrant on me when I enter to Turkey (shaykh smiles). They say, “you going over there to fool Americans with this?” They put me in jail. But we are not expecting anything from them. We are not expecting anything from others. We are just trying to sincerely, believing in my heart trying to find ways to learn each other and to love each other, to respect each other. That is the way we are going to practice, this is the way we have been practice. You cannot tell me, you are wrong, I cannot tell you, you are wrong. But I can tell you, when you are bankrupt with this, and you finding no more peace, nothing else coming to you. Then come to me, I have something to give to you that time (shaykh smiles).

The person who comes to a shaykh, he comes with his own intelligence, with his own mind, you already reach to certain stations, you already knows certain secrets of this world, you cannot figure out certain things, so he comes to a shaykh. So he sits in the association of the shaykh, and he listened. He has the right to accept or not accept. He doesn’t have the right to fight about it. But he has the right to question. Until he realized, “that is a master. That is my guide. I can trust that one.” When you trust that one, you go and said, “I m submitting, initiating to you.” Meaning, I’m accepting what you are going to tell me, what I have to do. So that time, he looks at you, he sees, ok the world or the benefit of this world, or the worldly matter that has holding you from one angle. As someone stood up, he looked at Jesus AS, he love him, he love his companion, he says to him, “Jesus, what should I do, to enter to paradise?” He looked at him, he sees clearly the matter right the way, what he loves. He says to him, “for you enter into the paradise, go set everything that you own, take all that money, go distributed to the poor people. And come back follow me, live like me.” He says, “you mean all my wealth? All my wealth that belongs to me from my father, from my forefathers, set it to give to the strangers I don’t know? ” “Did you asked me the entrance to the paradise? For you, that is what it is, because you want paradise from one side, but you don’t want to give up from this world.” So when Jesus looked at him, he sees, he is in love with this world. So he hit him from that angle, he says, “first, get rid of that love. When you get rid of that love from your heart, you find space to put other loves, you find space to put really your Lord’s love in it. Otherwise when that love is occupying your heart, you cannot be able to find space to put that, then you are not going to be successful in that work that you are doing.

Of course, our door, which while I’m entering here, I see in your church also saying, “all welcome,” isn’t that what it is saying? Saying, all welcome. Meaning all kinds of people, all kinds of ways is welcome. That’s why I’m here, I’m very happy about it. Because same thing there, same thing that is saying in our door. All welcome, doesn’t matter what is your faith is, doesn’t matter what your fear is. Come, learn how to sit with each other, to eat together, to enjoy the meal first the Lord is giving to us, to learn how to be thankful for that. Then you will not fight that time, then you will find the way to say, you cannot fighting, you have so much space, you have so much time, what are we going to do with it? We have to progress the spiritual way, we have to turn to spiritual world.

SPIRIT MATTERS: Divine Message of the Sufi

Islam is two principles, sitting on two principles, one is to learn how to worship your Lord. Second, learn to help and to reach his creations. If the person does these two things, then he will reach to the highest stations. Without separating, saying “this is Jew, this is Christian, this is black, this is white, this is green, this is yellow.” In originally, we are all created from the same thing, we have the same material, same creation material. So Allah saying to us in the Holy Quran, “we have separate you in different nations, in different tribes, to go find one and each other, to learn from each other, to exchange, to learn, to improve yourself, to become better ones. To become better ones to the Divine service. In reality, we are all for Divine service. We are not for our own service, our own ego’s service, but for the greater service. We have to be in His service, when we are in His service, that time, we will be able to look at his creatures, saying “this is His creature, my duty is to serve that creature. If I’m serving my Lord, my duty is to serve that creature.”

So this is the name, the faith I believe every one of us here we are sharing. I don’t think anyone here finding the separation here. Our duty is to love each other as a man, and to respect each other, respect each other’s rights. And learn how to know, how to communicate, how to love each other. When we learn how to love each other, then we will be able to reach to our Creator.

One of the Hadith, the relating Hadith meaning the words of the Holy Prophet Muhammad, Alayhi salam wa tu Salaam saying to us, “the one who doesn’t says la ilaha illalah. Meaning la ilaha illalah, there is no God but only one who created all. Because the people they have invented Gods to themselves. They built idols and they did so many things. They started worship to those things, and they said, ‘this is our God.’” So the Holy Prophet Muhammad SAWS saying, “la ilaha illalah, there is no Gods man can created, but ilallah, that One who have created everyone.” Anyone who says these words and they believe, they are entering into paradise. That means that one has a faith. He says, “but if you don’t love each other, if you don’t learn how to love each other, even if you are saying that word, you are not really reaching to the main roots of the faith.”

Above is the talk Sh Efendi gave, introducing non-Muslims to Sufism within the context of Islam. This talk took place at the River Road Unitarian Church, Bethesda, Maryland, USA, on February 27, 2004 (Muharram 6, 1425).

Zam Zam Water-Miracles of Allah

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

Zam Zam Water from Mecca

Science, at a very later stage, reveals new secrets about Zamzam’s water and the way it is influenced by the verses of the Glorious Quran. Read more on the subject…….Allah, the Almighty has mentioned the word “water” several dozens times in His Great Divine Book; the Glorious Quran. What we are interested here is the latest discovery of the Japanese scientist Masaru Emoto concerning “water’s memory”, and that water stores inside its memory all the events that take place around it! Masaru Emoto performed the first of its kind, pioneering experiments on water. He experimented with few drops of water which he put under various sound frequencies. He noticed that the water particles arrangement differs upon changing the frequency! Perhaps the final experiment Dr. Masaru Emoto did was on Zamzam’s water which he subjected to a stiff and fastidious test. He found out that this water is different than any other type of water on the globe. Interestingly, he noticed that this water has a special interaction and reaction with the Words of Allah, the Almighty; the Glorious Quran recitation on it.

 This is a photo of Zamzam water gushing through the rocks. Zamzam water still gush non-stop since thousands of years. This is rather an amazing behavior. Where does Zamzam water come from, while in this barren land of a desert? Does this phenomenon require our deep meditation and thinking?

Perhaps we can comprehend now why it is preferable and encouraged to recite [i.e. verses from the Glorious Quran] on water with the hope to cure the patient! Water is the only element in the nature that is distinct in nature than all other elements due to its physical and chemical properties that makes it unanimously, the “Master” of all other elements in the nature.

Emoto brought few drops of Zamzam’s water and recited the “Basmaleh” [In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, Most Merciful] in Arabic and noticed that the arrangement of the water particles became prettier! In fact, these drops of water formed unique shapes as if they were drawn by a fantastically skilled artist.

Sohbet by Sheykh Abdul Kerim al-Hakkani al-Kibrisi

Osmanli Naksibendi Hakkani Dergahi, Siddiki Center, New York.

Auzu billahi min ash-sheytanir rajim

Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi

A Murid: Today many Imams, Sheykhs and scholars are saying that there’s Democracy in Islam.

Sheykh Efendi: Where are they?

The Murid: They are everywhere. Firstly, those who are here (in America), either they are Salafis or they are calling themselves Tariqat or Sufis, not one of them is against Democracy in Islam.

Sheykh Efendi: Not one of them is against Democracy in Islam. That shows the level of their intelligence, firstly.

The Murid: They are saying that it is in Islam and they are proving it.

Sheykh Efendi: In Islam? Who is proving?

The Murid: Like they are saying, in the beginning the people were in different groups and they were running to be the leaders.

Sheykh Efendi: Tawba Ya Rabbi, Astaghfirullah. And?

The Murid: And that’s just like today.

Sheykh Efendi: (Mockingly) Yeah, later they fought with each other, they voted and one won over the other one.

The Murid: Yes, they say that the Sahaba-e Kiram all voted for Hazrat Abu Bakr (ra) to become the leader.

Sheykh Efendi: They all voted?

The Murid: They all voted, like today.

Sheykh Efendi: How many voted for Abu Bakr Siddik (ra)?

The Murid: All of them.

Sheykh Efendi: (Smiling) All of them voted? That shows that they don’t know anything too. First of all, not even the Christian world is accepting this Democracy-hypocrisy system. Leave Islam. Huh, do the Jews accept it? No. So, the Ibrahimi religions are not accepting it. Leave Islam now. We are going to enter into that part later. Was there Democracy voting system in America 100 years ago? In France? In London? Germany? Those countries that were leading the Crusade flags against Islam, were they ruled by Democracy? Since how many years is this Democracy nonsense on? Who’s going to say? It’s not even 100 years. It’s not even 80 years. It’s not even correctly 50 years because all other regimes under the name of Democracy were dictator regimes. Look. Check it out. Until today too, everywhere under the name of Democracy are dictators. Everywhere.

So, let’s put that aside what the system is. What is Allah saying to us? Is He saying to us, ‘Rule by this’ or ‘Rule by My Laws’? Which one is it? Muslims today are so upset, the Muslim nations, they are so upset with the Israelis, the Jews. Especially, the Egyptians. But they are working together with them. But that’s a different story. The Saudis are allied with them but that’s a different story. Outside to their foolish members they say, ‘This is our enemy’. But behind they are partners in every job. The Palestinians, huh? Everyone was putting Yasir Arafat on top of their heads saying, ‘He is our leader fighting against Israel’. But he has billions of dollars of investments with Yahudis everywhere. And now that he died, the money doesn’t go to the Muslims. It goes to his Christian wife. Allah, Allah. But the Muslims are heedless. The Muslims lost not only their religion, not only their honor, they lost their minds too. Yeah.

So, they are supporting Democracy. Who is saying that? Sheytan is whispering saying, ‘I am the one who helped you to make the French Revolution’. If anybody knows what is the French Revolution and what happened at that time, the ruling system has changed in the world from that time. The ruling. The French Revolution was against Kingdom, against the strong man. It doesn’t matter even if it’s Westerners. Look how Britain is. Do you think the British removed the Kingdom? The nation where the sun never set. Rising from the East and going to Argentina. The sun is never setting. Everywhere they have their flag, that little tiny island there. They ruled the world, with what? With the Kingdom. Not even King but now it’s Queen. Still because it’s in one hand and still that they say ‘We have Democracy today’, but they are showing proper respect (to their Kingdom). Look at those countries that have Kingdom today, it may be crooked, it doesn’t matter, still they are strong nations. Are the Spanish becoming strong? It was strong. They had the King. The Netherlands, Belgium. Go Far East. Malaysia. Go to Brunei. Brunei is a land that we may have more land than Brunei here.

(Laughter in the Audience)

It’s not a joke. It’s real. Brunei itself is now Darus Salam. Yes, they have the right to say now, only they have the right to say Darus Salam. But, he is moving. He bought almost half of Australia, New Zealand, all everywhere, they don’t even know. He is King. King Hasan Husayni. Hasan. King. From Ahl-il Bayt. Watch his rulings in the country. Don’t look from outside here. They are attacking him in so many ways. Did you ever see one of their people coming to this country saying, ‘Oh, I love America’? But you see so many Egyptians, Saudis saying, ‘I love America!’ Yeah, you love America. You are right. Because you have every freedom. They leave you to become free animals. They say to you, ‘Yes, you are free only to become animals. Smoke Hashish. If you don’t have it then we will provide for you. Don’t worry. Later, we attack Afghanistan. Why? Because they stopped growing Hashish, these Taliban, they promised to the United Nations and they got rid of 95 percent of it. So how are we going to do that? If they cut its ways of coming, how are we going to make our money? How are we going to fool these young Muslims with drugs? If we don’t fool them with drugs, if we don’t keep them heedless, with the energy inside of them, if they read that Book and they say ‘Jihad’, we are not going to be able to stop them again. We built the Crusades, we did this and we did that but we couldn’t stop them. So now we can control them this way.’

So, we are going back to Democracy. Sheytan is saying to them, ‘I helped you’. One of the worst things that happened to the world is the French Revolution. He is saying, ‘So many good people we got rid of, we hanged them’. And, in simple English, for everyone to understand, the bastards became the rulers. The adultery children became the rulers. Isn’t it? The Kings, the rulers were taken and they have been hanged. They cut their necks off. And? They picked up the bastards and made them the rulers, those who cannot even rule on themselves, and most of them are gays and all kinds of other things.

Say to me still that there’s Democracy in Islam. Let’s go back to the Islam of that time. Democracy, as I said, is only 50 years old. The children of Adam (as) has never seen this kind of foolishness ever before. Everyone is choosing, who? Their leaders. Let the sheep choose their shepherd. That’s exactly what it is. Your leader has to be better than you. Your leader must be thinking better than you, your leader must be in a higher state than you. How are you going to vote for this one or that one to say, ‘This one is better’, if you don’t know him? Are they voting? No. They go to cities, they go to towns, they go to here and there. The bottom point is, is Democracy working? No. They go and they buy the people. The Senators go, they buy those groups of people saying, ‘Vote for this one’. Why are they making commercials 24 hours a day?

‘Vote for me! Vote for me! Vote for me! Vote for me!’

Why? Your Democracy system is working only one day in four years, saying, ‘You gave me vote. You are very important to me’. And what happens if you don’t give? ‘Don’t give me and look what I do to you’. Isn’t that what’s happening? It’s not working. But Islam worked for 1400 years.

Huh, who voted? Of course, there are people. It’s not the people who voted for that one to be elected. It was already elected. When the Prophet (sws) was in the bed and he was ready to pass from this world, he said, ‘Bring me a pen and paper and I am going to write down who are going to rule after’. And there were people from Ansar, there were people from Muhajir in Medina and some ignorant ones, hasha astaghfirullah we are saying that, but in their level at that time there were some that just come into Islam, you understand? They didn’t know anything about that so much. They just came in and they were thinking, ‘Well, the Prophet (sws) is going to put people from Mecca to rule on us’. Understand?

So, there were some talks going back and forth and the Prophet (sws) was saying, ‘Stop it. No need to write down. There are people here with enough knowledge to choose who’s coming next. People here in this room’. And those people have elected, they gave their election and they said, ‘This one’. Not that they went around saying, ‘This is our nominee and this is your nominee’. Who was that? It was Abu Bakr Siddik (ra). Was there another nominee? No. There was nobody else. It was only Abu Bakr Siddik (ra). And it was 7 people, almost everyone of whom became Khalifahs after that, those 7 people voted for that one saying, ‘Yes, this is okay. Because? Because of the signs that the Prophet (sws) did this, this and this with him’. Okay? And they accepted Abu Bakr Siddik (ra).

It’s not as what those squareheads say, that ‘The Ansar became one party, the Muhajir became one party and the Ahl-il Bayt became one party’. Ahl-il Bayt. The grandchildren of the Prophet (sws) fought for elections? They fought for ruling? This is slandering on them. This is spitting on them, spitting on their faces, to those ones. Definitely, they are the best ones to rule. But don’t you see, Hazrat Hasan pulled back. When he tested the people and he pulled back. He said, ‘No, no. He will not be my kind of ruler to you because I have so much mercy. You need Muawiya (ra). His sword is out. When you move out from the line then he is not going to show the same kind of mercy that I’m going to’. And he even accepted Muawiya (ra). Who’s going to say that he didn’t? He accepted him as Khalifah.

After Abu Bakr Siddik (ra), who came? Omar (ra). Do you think Omar (ra) came out saying, ‘I am the nominee to become Khalifah’? And the Muhajir and the Ansar said, ‘Yes, we are voting on you’? No. Again, those seven people from the Shura who are all in the same level almost, they are all in the same knowledge almost that when one is doing the wrong thing then the other one is able to go to him and say, ‘Ya Omar, you know Prophet (sws) at this time did this and this?’ And Omar (ra) pulled himself back to the line. Yes, and thanking that one saying, ‘Thank you for reminding me this’.

Then Omar (ra) passes from this world. Not passing from the world that way, of course. Those people with the idea of Democracy, with the Sheytanic system, they didn’t like the ruling of Omar (ra) so much. So they wanted to get rid of him. Just like today that when there’s a good President coming they assassin that one. They are getting rid of him. They wanted to get rid of him because they couldn’t do what they wanted to do because his eyes were everywhere. So, they got rid of him and Omar (ra) before passing from this world said, ‘Definitely, Osman (ra) is fitting to be the Khalifah. But I am afraid of him because he is too close with his family members. He has so much mercy for them and some of those family members will not hesitate to get rid of his head. But my favor is with him.’ Omar (ra) is saying this.

Then he is saying to his son Abdullah who is in the level to become Khalifah too. Hazrat Omar’s son was raised from zero, from zero ground next to the Prophet (sws). And the Prophet (sws) gave so much knowledge and secret to him that he was in the top Sahabi level. He was on top of so many older ones too because he has never seen any Kufur. He always was on the straight line. And whose son is he? The father is Omar (ra). And he was saying to him, ‘My son, I know that you fit also to become the Khalifah. You are in that category. But I will not forgive you my rights on the Judgment Day if you go to become the Khalifah, if you want to become the Khalifah’. It’s because he knew that if Abdullah would put himself there, he would win. And he said to him, ‘You are not going to. And you are going to favor that one that the Prophet (sws) has favored’. What’s the secret there? He said, ‘You will vote for that one’. So, 3 and 3 votes and Hazrat Omar’s son Abdullah voted for Hazrat Osman (ra) and he became the Khalifah.

And then Ali (ra) came, continuing. Then for sometimes the Umawis ruled. When the Umawi ruling changed and the rulers started doing wrong things openly, which the Holy Prophet (sws) is saying, ‘If the Khalifah, if the ruler is doing something secretly and you don’t know and it’s a sin, it’s not your business to go and search. As long as he rules correctly, if he is a Habashi Koleh, if he is a Habashi slave that is coming to you and his ear is cut, his nose is cut, (there are different signs there), and as long as he is ruling with the order of Allah and His Prophet (sws), you are under the obligation to obey that one. As long as he doesn’t do open big sins, you are under the obligation’. He is saying to all Sahaba-e Kiram. He is saying to them that.

Who is he saying to? He is saying to Abu Bakr Siddik (ra), to Omar (ra), to Osman (ra), to Ali (ra) and to everyone. He is saying, ‘If one day somebody comes to you like this and when he rules in the way of Allah and the Prophet (sws), you are under the obligation to obey that one. Disobedience to that one is disobedience to Allah and to His Prophet (sws), and you will be in big trouble in the hereafter’.

So now, those people voted that way. It’s not the voting that, ‘Oh, we have to put it together for years and months and da da da da’. All those ones, 3 people, 5 people, 6 people, they said, ‘Yeah, who is that one that we are voting for? Abu Bakr Siddik. That’s right. He is the Khalifah’. Finished. That’s what it is. That’s what had happened. And what did the Khalifah do? He got up and he said, ‘As long as I rule you in the way of Allah and His Prophet (sws), you are under the obligation to obey. For disobedience to me on the Judgment Day and in the world, you will be punished. The minute that you see me deviating from the way of the Rasul (sws) and from the way of Allah, then you are no longer under the obligation to obey me. But you are under the obligation to come and to warn me. If you don’t then on the Judgment Day you will be partners with the wrong things that I am doing’. Hmm? All Khalifahs said this.

Then we see the time of Hazrat Muawiya and when his ruling is finishing, Yazid is entering in it. Yazid prepared certain things before and it fit to some Sahaba-e Kiram to accept Yazid as a ruler too for Dunya. Dunya is always there fooling. And when Yazid started forcing his wrong ideas on people then in the first instance Hazrat Husayn rose saying, ‘I am not accepting to be under the ruling of someone who is openly committing the big sins’. And? ‘Because I am not accepting, I will not cause confusion too because I am one of the grandsons of the Prophet (sws) and I know that what I say is going to be counted and so many people are going to be following that way, I am not rising to be the Khalifah too. For that reason I am leaving this land. I am leaving the land where Islam is ruling. I am going out of this land’.

And the people of Kufa, Iran and Iraq, as they did always, they called them and they betrayed them. They called him saying, ‘Come Ya Husayn’. He received hundreds, thousands of letters from the leaders, saying, ‘Come and be the leader for us’. And he was just going there to teach them the way of Allah and His Prophet (sws). He wasn’t running there to be the head like so many squareheads are fighting today and saying this and that. The Shias are putting something else. So he was going there and Yazid understood that, ‘As long as he lives, it’s not going to be good for me. I have to get rid of him’. And he planned and he did all these wrong things.

After that another movement begins and the Abbasi Khalifahs rise. And the Umawis move all the way to Spain and the other parts and the Abbasis are there and now there are two ruling systems and it’s not accepted. There has to be only one. And when the Ottomans were becoming strong and Spain and all the other ones were attacking and finishing the Umawis, the Umawis asked help from the strong nation (Ottomans) and they said, ‘We will help you only if you submit yourselves to the Khalifatullah, to the Abbasi Khalifah. Then we will help you. Otherwise, you are alone with your enemies. We will not help you.’ And they didn’t help them and the enemies finished them.

And then the Abbasi ruling continued, the Khilafat, until it changed hand and it moved all the way to Egypt and the Khalifah was different and the rulers were different. Now the Khilafat and the ruling are in two different hands and there’s a big problem there. Because now (for instance) I am the Khalifah and I am saying this to happen but the King is stronger than me. So hiddenly or openly he is bypassing my ruling. So it’s not working. The same thing happened in Egypt. The Mamluks were ruling. They were the strong hand. They had the sword in their hands and the Abbasi Khalifah was there. So, whatever the Abbasi Khalifah was saying was not really working. Whatever the Mamluk King was saying was working.

So the Ottomans were watching very carefully and saying, ‘Okay. This is a wrong system now’. And one day the Holy Prophet (sws) is coming in a dream to Sultan Selim saying, ‘Now it’s time. Go and take both the Khilafat and the ruling from there to one hand again’. And it’s a long story. He came there and he took it. From that time until the 1900’s, 1923, until 1909 really, over 500 years passed. For 500 years Islam only rose, never fell, everywhere in the world. When different nations tried to say certain wrong things about Islam, about the Holy Prophet (sws), about anything, just one letter was enough to stop them. Okay?

Since when that came down? Since when that sickness of Democracy entered. They removed the Khilafat, they removed the ruling system of Islam and they brought Democracy saying, ‘This is the only way we are going to rule them again. There is no other way. As long as there’s one Khalifah, how are we going to rule them? It’s not possible’. And they separated the one nation of Islam into nationalities saying to the Turks, ‘You have your own flag’, saying to Egyptians, ‘You have your own flag’, to Syrians, ‘You have your own flag’, to Pakistanis ‘Your own flag, your own flag’ and everyone raised their nationalism before Islam.

They said, ‘So what are we going to do with the Prophet’s (sws) flag?’ They said, ‘Wrap it up, close it and put it in the museum’. That shows that the ruling system of Islam is finished and now it’s Democracy. Every nation is going to rule, they are going to choose their own presidents, prime ministers and their best liars are going to become their leaders. Isn’t that what’s happening? The best liars become their leaders. The best cheaters. It’s because they cheat and they know how to invest to make them cheat too. Anyone who’s saying, ‘I am a Muslim’ and ‘I am a Muslim leader. I am an Imam or a Sheykh’ or whatever they are calling themselves, scholars, and if they are supporting this Democracy understanding then they have no minds. They must go check themselves to the crazy hospital and stay there. At least they will not be responsible on the Judgment Day from the knowledge that they have. They are going to say, ‘They lost their minds. What can we do?’ And it’s open to the whole world. And I’m challenging those leaders that say this. I am talking to this level now. They want to talk from that level, they should come and we will speak from that level.

I know what Democracy is. I worked for the United Nations. I know what they are preparing to do in those nations. They cannot even dream, those foolish ones that are running and they are helping them. Almost 60 maybe 70 Muslim nations today are in the United Nations. Which one of them is putting the signature against the Yahudis that they are so much angry with them? But go inside and look what happens inside. Outside they show something else but inside look how many countries are voting against the Yahudis. Do you know who accepted the Yahudis first when they declared their nation? Before America, do you know who accepted it? So many is not going to like it maybe. Say.

A Murid: Egypt.

Sheykh Efendi: No. The Turks. Turks are the first ones. Later Egypt. Yeah.

Another Murid: Egypt beat them up first and then accepted.

Sheykh Efendi: Beat them up? They should be ashamed never to talk again. 80 million Egyptians got beat up by 3 million Yahudis. That’s the reality. You like it or you don’t like it. That’s the reality. But they only know how to brag about it that, ‘We did this and that’. What you did? It’s showing. It’s there. Leave America. America is supporting you more than the Israelis. America is supporting them with 5 billion dollars a year. The Egyptians. 5 billion.

Anyway, Democracy is hypocrisy. If anyone wants to support hypocrisy, they are welcome. But the end came to that too. The end. There is a beginning and there is an end. Who’s saying that Democracy is hypocrisy? The Holy Prophet (sws) is saying. He said how Islam is going to rule. By Democracy? How foolish and idiots they are! He said to us, ‘After me the Khulafa-e Rashideen’. He said that Democracy is coming? He said, ‘After the Khulafa, Maliks, the Kings will come’. The Kings came and ruled Islam, yes. Umawis, Abbasis were Kings. The Khulafa-e Rashideen were not kings. They were Sahaba-e Kiram. Then he said, ‘After the Khulafa, the Kings will come to rule’. He didn’t say, ‘Democracy is going to come to rule’. He didn’t say, ‘The Khulafa is coming through Democracy’. Tomorrow they will say, ‘Let’s choose the Prophet too’. This is what they are saying.

And now those Wahhabi sheytans, I am saying to them this because now they are taking Ibn Abdul Wahhab, you don’t know that part too, they are saying, ‘Ibn Abdul Wahhab is the Muhammad that Allah is mentioning in the Quran-e Kerim. Muhammad is not that one but this is the Muhammad’. Do you know that part? That’s how they believe.

So, (the Holy Prophet sws said,) ‘After Khulafa-e Rashideen, the Maliks will come. After the Kings, Sultans will come’. Did Sultans come? Yes. The Mamluks and the Ottomans. ‘They will rule justly. After the Sultans Jababirah comes. The tyrants’. So after Sultans what came? What kind of ruling system came? Democracy. What the Prophet (sws) is calling Democracy system? Jababirah. The Zalims. The Tyrants. If you are still going to say there’s Democracy in Islam then I say to you, MashaAllah to you. Congratulations to you on the Judgment Day. Speak as much as you want. It’s okay.

Your Democracy is not going to help anymore anyway. No America, no Europe, nobody is going to help anymore the people of Democracy too. Democracy came and they say, ‘Well, human rights’. Human rights? Where is human rights? ‘I go to the United Nations’. That’s what they say. ‘For human rights’. Where is human rights? They say, ‘No, we have to go one more step ahead. Animal rights’. Where is animal rights? Islam is the one that’s giving animal rights. Not you. Then they say, ‘No, no, no. We couldn’t do it that way. We didn’t destroy this Islam on the inside. Now we are going to say ‘Feminist rights’, ‘Women’s rights’. The women of Islam lost their minds too. Don’t think I’m only talking to the men. I am talking to the women too. They lost their minds because they say, ‘Women’s rights’. Who’s saying that?

‘Yahudis are saying we have women’s rights’.

Of course, you have rights. The rights that Allah and His Prophet (sws) is showing to you. Not the rights that the Yahudis or the Zionists or the other ones are showing thinking to destroy Islam from the inside. What are your rights? Don’t you know what are your rights? What are the rights that Allah and His Prophet (sws) are giving to you? Don’t you see what rights Allah and His Prophet (sws) are giving? Removing you from the debt? Isn’t that enough? Huh, today under that Democracy system, aren’t they using the women still as moneymaker machines? Why are you allowing women to go to work everywhere? Does it fit for women to work everywhere? Does it fit to women’s creation to work everywhere? How foolish is this? Like I said, they lost their minds, not only their faith.

You see construction in the streets. They are making asphalt, breaking, and the women are working there with the men. I sat one day waiting for them and they were talking in a language with each other that I said, ‘Is this a woman or is this a man?’ You don’t know which one is the woman and which one is the man. But from the shape you can see that it’s a woman. She’s wearing shorts too. What are you doing there? Confusion and Fitna. It’s nothing else. Who’s supporting this? Democracy, not Islam. Eh, brainless Imams, if they say anything then let them come to me and I will show them more. I’ll talk to them from their level and I’ll say some points to them and then look what happens to them. Astaghfirullah. I am just a weak servant but those kinds of foolish ones, it is enough to knock them down.

So, I am not accepting and that’s not a good ruling system for mankind. The whole idea from the ruling is to give a better lifestyle to the mankind. Islam did that. Nothing else. Islam ruled correctly. It gave enough to man and made the boss and worker to become friends, to watch each other’s rights. It made the ruler and the porter to be sitting on the same table and eating and to be praying on the same prayer lines. Islam gave this right to the man. Democracy took all this away. It separated people again and now it’s fooling everybody. Anybody who is running for Democracy, they should run to stop the collapse of Democracy because Democracy is already collapsing. From their own nations it’s collapsing. They know that it’s not working.

The United Nations just came out with a new report saying, ‘The people of the world has never suffered the way that it has suffered in the last century. And all this happened because of the ruling system’. The United Nations put this out. And saying, ‘The best system ever to rule for mankind is the Kingdom. Even if they were wrong, the wrong Kings were a hundred percent better than the best Democratic leaders’. And they didn’t hesitate to put that part in it too saying, ‘And from that Kingdom ruling system, the best time that the world has ever been ruled was in the time of the Ottoman Empire’. They say, ‘They kept all religions next to each other. They didn’t fight, they didn’t argue. Although they were ruling themselves with Islam, Islam showed tolerance to them, how to accept and how to follow’. That’s all.

A murid: I have read in a book that the Ottoman Empire was the safest empire for people whether it be a Christian in the Balkans or an Arab in the Middle East. No other empire was this safe for traveling long distance at night or day. It was the safest.

Sheykh Efendi: Yeah, because Islam is ordering to people that if you are a ruler, the first duty you have is between you and Allah and the second duty is you have to run to make a better lifestyle for mankind. It doesn’t stop there with finishing your prayers. That’s why so many Sultans wanted to become murids to the Sheykhs but they said to them, ‘No, you cannot be. You are going to rule correctly. You are going to sit, you are going to watch, you are going to think to find out what the problems are and you are going to fix the problems. Your job is something else. That’s how you are going to reach somewhere’. And that’s what they were doing. They had people going around, checking things, understanding the problem of the people and they were trying to fix it.

Where is it today? You go and you tell your problems to them, they say, ‘Get lost. Get out of here. You are making trouble to us.’ Later they say to you, ‘Go to welfare’. And welfare is another big problem.

The system is wrong. But are we Muslims? What is our constitution? Quran-e Kerim, firstly. The second is Hadith, the Sunnat of Rasulullah (sws). And if you don’t find it in there then the Ulema. Not today’s understanding of Ulema. The Four Mazhabs. Hanafi, Shafi, Hanbali and Maliki. These Four Mazhabs are accepted. Other than these Four Mazhabs are not accepted. Salafi? Where are the Salafis? You think you are going to become Salaf as-Saliheen by just calling yourselves Salafis? By going around like idiots and thinking that you’re ruling the world, knowing nothing? You think you go to Saudi Arabia for 3 years and studying arrogantly in some university and they say to you, ‘Yes, you are Sheykh, you are this and that’, then you are going to run like that foolish Jamaican bum that yesterday was walking in the streets of Jamaica naked and today he’s becoming Ulema to a nation and standing up and screaming and cursing, that stupid Wahhabi idea person? Because the Wahhabis said to him, ‘You speak good. It’s a gift that Allah has given to you.’ So what? Because you speak good, you are going to direct the nation with your stupidity? And the stupid people are running after somebody that still his naked pictures are everywhere in the world walking in the streets of Jamaica? And they are accepting that one as a leader because of the Wahhabis, and they say that he is an Alim? Thuuh to you! Clean your mess first, your dirtiness, from the world and later come in front of the public. You committed open sin and it’s in front of everybody. Shut your mouth. Don’t speak. You can be the best of Alims but you don’t speak because your dirtiness is open. Anybody can bring it out.

Huh, Hanafi Mazhab. Hanafi Mazhab? It’s so strict. It’s saying to you, for instance, you are living in the town and in that town there is a store that sells only liquor, wine, and vinegar. No other place sells vinegar. Okay? But in that liquor store they sell the vinegar. If you are so desperate for the vinegar, you cannot enter to that store to buy the vinegar and come out. Why? Because anybody seeing that you are coming out from the liquor store with the bottle in your hand, they don’t know inside it is vinegar or wine. So you are giving confusion to people. You are making confusion for them to say things and because you are giving wrong guidance, you will be in trouble, although you are running to do something. Maybe you are going to use it for medicine. You cannot.

On the one side this is one strong example from a Mazhab and every Mazhab Imam is accepting this and on the other side this man is able to come to television to say, ‘You know, once upon a time I was in Jamaica, Hahaha, yeah, I was naked running in the street, Hahaha’. According to Shariat, according to Shariat law now, that man’s head must go because he is opening his dirty wrong things that he did through his mouth to the public. So of course, they are not going to want Shariat. They are going to want Democracy, those ones, of course. But they think that it’s going to be safety again because they want it. But it’s coming.

Huh, what’s coming? Hazrat-i Mehdi is coming. Hazrat-i Mehdi is not Ulema. He is not an Alim. And almost all the Alims in the world are going to be against him. So many Sheykhs are going to be against him too because it’s not going to fit. But he’s going to say to them, ‘I am not asking you. I am here to fix it and either you will be fixed with this (the tongue) or I will fix you with this (the sword)’, just like Omar (ra), saying, ‘I’ll get rid of your heads’. And that’s what’s going to happen. And that’s what they are preparing too. All coming out forward now saying, ‘I was once upon a time this’. I say, ‘Good. They put your name in the book too. You are keeping it a secret all this time and you are going to say it now. Good. Continue’.

So, that kind of understanding is very wrong. That kind of understanding made this nation to become heedless, not knowing who’s the enemy, not knowing what is right and what is wrong. Deep inside their hearts they know that they are doing something wrong but they are going to the Ulema and Alim who are saying, ‘It’s okay’. So they say, ‘Alim is saying it’s okay’. Their heart is still not satisfied. So they say, ‘Something is wrong somewhere’. But then Sheytan is coming saying, ‘Are you better? You see the Ulema are saying this to you. It’s okay’. So because their ego is accepting, they are sitting on it. But still are they comfortable a hundred percent? No. They are not because this is always going to speak. The heart is always going to speak. You can cheat the world and you can cheat yourself. You cannot cheat the heart.

So, that’s what they are doing and they are preparing hell to themselves, as Allah subhana wa ta’ala is saying. It’s not that you are praying or you are not praying. So many people are praying here now because of force, the situation they are in. Ask them how many times they went to Juma before. How many times they will be going to Juma if they are not here. Hmm. Don’t ask that part. Okay.

So, I’m not accepting Democracy. I am not favoring it in any way. As I said, I’m not just talking from the head. I have worked in it, I have seen what was happening and I was not only working but I had the chance of becoming the President (of Northern Cyprus). I have enough family members too and I would’ve become a President too. But I have resigned from that. I have resigned. I didn’t change the job. I could have waited two more years to be a retired man but I didn’t. I resigned from it.

A murid: You even have family in the media.

Sheykh Efendi: I have so many of them, not one. They will all accept because if I would have said to them, ‘Okay, you are a Communist. I am going to give you certain things’, and they will accept it. So, imagine I have the Communist newspaper supporting me, I get the right wing supporting me and I get Sheykh Mevlana supporting me. What will happen? (Sheykh Efendi smiles). Astaghfirullah al-Azim.

So, that’s the question you have, huh? Asking about Democracy, Ulema. Where are the Ulema? Al-Azhar University in Egypt. Once upon a time it made name, yes. There were Ulema coming out, scholars coming out from there. But now only ignorants are coming out because now not only accepting the Four Mazhabs but they are accepting all these Wahhabi, Shia ideas and everything in it and they are all mixed up now because of money. When money is involved it’s finished. Goodbye. Every year 100,000 people graduate from Al-Azhar University. Through the Prophet’s (sws) approving, not one. If it’s one then he’s enough to fix the whole Egypt. If it’s two then Saudi Arabia. Three, Syria. Four, Turkey. Five, Iraq. It’s enough. One Alim is enough to fix the whole nation.

A murid: They are accepting Rafizis now.

Sheykh Efendi: Offf. Of course. Soon if they open another branch praising all those people who killed Omar (ra), Osman (ra) and Ali (ra), I will not be surprised. Opening other branches for Habashis, Kharijis, Alawis, Qizilbash saying, we’re accepting all these. New ways, saying, ‘We’re accepting’. So they changed everything. What do they say? New Age Religion. Yes. People with no minds. New Age people, New Age religion. You can be a Yahovah’s Witness, it’s okay. You can be calling yourself a Christian, you can be a Muslim, you can be a Buddhist. (They are) saying, ‘Live like humans’. How are you going to live like humans? On the one side it’s teaching you to live like humans and on the other side it’s teaching how to live like a wolf, how to live like a hyena or fox or this or that? How are you going to sit over there and live like a human now? They lost their minds again one more time. And men who lose their minds are worse than animals.

Who doesn’t have intelligence? Animals. Angels have intelligence but they don’t have freewill. Animals have freewill but they don’t have intelligence. Man has intelligence and freewill. And man has ego. Man has desires. And when he’s fighting against that saying, ‘I have a freewill’… Free will means, ‘I am using my will to stop my wrongdoings’. That’s what’s freewill. Freewill is not to say, ‘I do as I like. I am free’. Animal is like that too. Don’t you see? Animal is free. So why don’t you bring the animals inside here and sit with the animals here? Why do we keep them in the barn? Sit with them. That’s how today’s people are living anyway. Barn is cleaner than their houses. Young generation, you cannot enter to their rooms. Dirty smell, food here, food there, dirty clothes here, dirty clothes there, everything is a mess in their house. So the animals live like that. This is what Democracy brought to mankind. And then,

‘You cannot touch your son. You cannot touch your daughter. You cannot do this’.

And? How am I going to train them? Some are a little bit arrogant. I have to pull the ear a little bit. But saying, ‘No you cannot touch’. And? Look what they are today. Hmm? I have examples to show. That’s the reality of Islam. Either you will take example or you will become example. There’s no other way. Yes, sir.

A murid: Sheykh Efendi, is it the result of Democracy that the elderly seek out their children and grandchildren to visit them rather than the children coming to see their elders?

Sheykh Efendi: Well, that’s not in Islam. The young ones have to go visit the olderly ones. It’s not from Christianity too. The Christians had some proper respect once upon a time. That is not from Democracy. That’s from Secularism. That’s completely from the ideology of unbelief, saying, ‘It’s okay’. In Islam it’s necessary to show respect. Respect and love, there has to be both. If that is lost then you lose Islam. So, if an olderly is getting up to go to visit the young one then what is your expectation now? What is it that you are getting? You’re just putting those ones into bigger trouble. Why are you going there to visit them? You are giving ways to the wrong understanding. Through your actions you are supporting wrong understanding. That’s not what the Holy Prophet (sws) taught us. Anything that doesn’t fit to the teachings of the Holy Prophet (sws) is not accepted in Islam. If you are doing it then you are responsible.

People are raising children today? People today became slaves to their children. Mothers became slaves to the children. One baby and the mother is a slave. Forget it. That’s the reality. Say otherwise. They don’t care about Allah and His Prophet (sws). That baby cries, finished, she drops everything, she leaves the prayers and she leaves everything. At that time you are raising a rat that’s going to bite you and it’s coming out one day, as soon as you touch that one’s ego. That’s why today’s children from early ages, when you say ‘Do this’, they are saying, ‘No!’ The nature of the child is not to say ‘No’. You are raising them to be like that. They are saying, ‘I don’t want it! I don’t want it!’

I used to have a restaurant. A father came with a little girl to the restaurant one time. I said to myself, ‘The man looks like a man with authority’. He goes, ‘Okay honey, what would you like to eat?’ She is a very arrogant type of girl. Little girl. There was a refrigerator with examples of plates and everything and she said, ‘I want this one!’ And he goes, ‘She wants that. Prepare one for her’. The girl is looking. I said, ‘Sir, this is a special for those people who are working in construction because there’s lots of food here. She is not going to be able to finish it. It’s going to be very heavy food for the little child’.

‘No, she wants it. Give it to her.’

They gave it to her. They put it in front of her. She just did like this. (Took one spoonful and) ‘Thuuh! I don’t like this’. I’m watching.

He goes, ‘What would you like, honey’.

‘I want this!’

‘All right. Give that.’

Do you think that it is the fault of that little girl? First the man has no mind. He lost his mind. How the little girl is going to know what to ask and what to eat? You are the one who’s supposed to be supporting, you are the one who’s supposed to be preparing and giving, saying, ‘This is good for you and this is bad for you’. No.

‘She wants it. Give it.’

Do you think that girl is going to grow up to listen to the father and mother now? In that part she’s not listening. When she’s reaching to 10 years old… I know people to whom the child says, ‘Stand up!’ The mother stands up. The father stands. Disaster. You don’t want that kind of a child. You prepare yourself to a hell and the child to a hell too. Believe me. Yeah. Astaghfirullah. Yes.

But today’s people became so merciful. MashaAllah. They call that mercy? They have more mercy than Allah and His Prophet (sws). SubhanAllah. Just one time grab the ear like that and give one smack and look how fast they will be fixed. If they don’t then in the school one time the teacher with a little stick. Nothing’s going to happen. It’s just going to hurt a little bit. Somebody just got one Falaka and one year he was correct a hundred percent. One year. Right? That’s why in Turkish there’s a saying that the stick came from Paradise. If people don’t understand through the tongue then that’s putting people back to the line.

Is this in Islam? Hazrat Omar (ra) was a Khalifah and he was giving Sohbet during Juma like this to Sahaba-e Kiram. He was saying to them, ‘First you must listen and obey when I am in the way of Allah and His Prophet (sws). If you disobey what I say through the tongue, I will fix you with this’. He was pulling out the sword and putting it there when he was talking. To who? To Sahaba-e Kiram. He’s saying to them, ‘Don’t stand in front of me to say, ‘I have seen this from the Prophet (sws) and I have seen that’. I am the one who’s ruling now. As long as I am ordering you things from the way of Allah and His Prophet (sws), you are going to follow’

And so many things he made into law. It was the Sunnat of the Prophet (sws). And when they said to him, ‘Ya Omar, you are changing’. He said, ‘Yes, because this Ummat is forgetting. For that I am making it law. In the Judgment Day I will be responsible’. That’s why reciting 3 Ikhlas between the Sunnat and the Farz prayer is the law of Omar (ra). He made it a law. Making the Tasbih after the Farz, everyone sitting and making ‘SubhanAllah, Alhamdulillah, Allahu Akbar’, he made it a law because he was seeing that everyone was coming, rushing into the Masjid, praying Farz and running out quickly just like today’s people. ‘What are you living for? For Dunya or for Akhirat? You’re just quickly running out? You don’t have 10 minutes to sit in the Masjid? For that reason you’re going to finish and you are going to wait for Imam to recite’. And he made it law everywhere that Islam was ruling.

Until 1923. After 1923 Islam is not ruling but still everywhere it continued. When I came to this country I saw so many weird things that I was seeing for the first time 35 years ago. I said, ‘Is this Islam? Where? From where this came?’

‘Ah, we have a Saudi Imam’.

I didn’t know that part too. I said, ‘What? Let me go over there’. I said, ‘Who are you?’ He said, ‘I am this’. I said, ‘Huh. Where you learned this? How many years you studied?’ ‘This many’. I said, ‘Tell me what are the obligations and Sunnats of the Wudu. Which parts of your body are you going to wash for your Wudu to be accepted?’ They don’t know. I am challenging all those Imams. They don’t know the 32 Farz and they don’t know the 54 Farz. Imam is not knowing that?

When we were raised, every child in every village at 7 years old had to know the 32 Farz. They were not going to school to learn. They were going to the Masjid and they were learning. So I said, ‘Everyone of those children will pass for Imam now, not one. The best Imams’. That’s why I became an Imam too. I was thinking, ‘What? I am going to be an Imam?’ But by looking at those ones I said, ‘Ohh, forget it. We pass for Imams too’.

I have seen Imams that we were shivering in front of them. The knowledge that they had, they were loaded. Today’s people are empty, completely empty, zero. Eh, what are they going to talk about? Dunya, Democracy, this and that. Imam is not there to talk about politics. Imam is there to talk about Akhirat. But the politicians were doing their jobs. So the Imams were doing their jobs. Now nobody’s doing their jobs. So the Imams have to give warning to the leaders, to the rulers, saying, ‘Hey, don’t forget. Allah is saying in the Quran-e Kerim about you this, this and this Ayats. You rule now but when you go to the grave this is the punishment you are receiving’. Everyone is taking this now and forgetting after five minutes thinking, ‘Okay, he’s going to change again’. Sheytan is coming to fool. And Allah is saying through the Ayat, ‘Sheytan is coming to you to fool you saying, ‘Don’t worry. Allah is going to forgive you. He is very Merciful’. He says, ‘Don’t get fooled by Sheytan. If you are breaking these laws that I put on you, you are going to be punished’. That’s all.

(Sheykh Efendi imitating someone): Sheykh Abdul Kerim is talking a little bit. What is this? Turkish Islam?

The person didn’t feel ashamed to say ‘Turkish Islam’. Is there Turkish Islam and Arabic Islam? Allah, Allah. Hmm. They lost their minds. I understand that when they are olderly they lose their minds. It’s normal. Eh, when you are touching the ego a little bit, forget it, rising like a wolf.

Fatiha. It’s enough. Alhamdulillah.

The Miraculous events and the coming Judgement Day

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem
A Green horse was found in Egypt which disappears in the Sky after a few seconds said to be Hazret Khidr alaihissalam.
Some Christians believe that the person who appeared on green horse is Saint George. While Muslims especially Sufi saints believe that it is Hazret Khidr or someone with heavenly powers sent by Allah to eliminate present tyranny and hypocrisy of rules and nations and to establish the Golden Age of  Islam.
This miraculous events appearing  in the world. Arab nations uprising were started and spread all over the region. It is logic to understand the spiritual power’s authority (Wilayah) over mankind!. The Arab uprising were started in Tunisia, spread all the way to Bahrain, is a sign of the domination of the spiritual powers over the world.
The world is a battle field of Truth and Falsehood. The emergence of Imam Mahdi (alaihissalam) and Jesus (alaihissalam) is on the way. The war of the messiahs against Anti-Christ is predicted by all major Islamic traditions.
Some deviant Muslims believe that Hazret Khidr alaihissalam is not alive now, but he is dead. This present day events are blow on their false beliefs.
The people of meditation from various religion is saying that,the Golden Age is going to begin from 2012 onwards. Scientists calls it as a “transformation period” of the earth.
Our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings of Allah be up on him), had stated that the life span of Muslim community on the earth will not exceed 1500 years.
This year is Hijra year 1432. It shows that the judgement day is near and we have got a few time left ahead.
Our grand Shaykh Sulthanul Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al-Haqqani (Qaddasallahu Sirrahul Azeez) saying to mankind, to lead a clean and pure lifestyle.
He saying: Whoever live, not for the sake of Allah will be perished. Out of 5 billion 3 Billion will be perished. Only religious people will remain on earth. Disasters for unbelievers and hypocrites.The great war (Armageddon)  is approaching before the Arrival of Imam Mahdi and Prophet Jesus (Peace be up on them). He saying that all the regimes in the world will collapse in this year 2011
Definitely the time of Imam Mahdi and Esa-Jesus (Peace be up on them) is going to be the golden age.
Army of Imam Mahdi (alahissalam

Al Mahdi, the Quraysh & the Ottoman Caliphate

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

La Ilaha Illa Allahu Muhammadu Rasoolullahi swalla Allahu Ta’ala alaihi wa ala aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallim

The Ottoman Caliphate was abolished in 1924, ending almost 1300 years of the Caliphate of the Quraysh with brief intervals. Until the demise of the Ottoman Caliphate, the Muslim world remained alligned and united under Baiah (Oath of Allegiance) to the bloodline of the Quraysh and the Oath (Baiah) of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (uwbp). After its abolishment, the Muslim world lost its Oath of Allegiance (Baiah) to the Holy Prophet Muhammad through the link of the Qurayshite inheritance of the Ottomans. The reign of the Quraysh as Caliphs, which began with the first of the Rightly Guided Caliphs, Abu Bakr, then Umar, Usman and Ali was finally destroyed. The Holy Prophet Muhammad told his wife Aisha, in a hadith mentioned by Imam Ahmad, “the Quraysh are the backbone of the people, and the people shall be destroyed as soon as the Quraysh is destroyed”.

Although God’s covenant is still evident with the Muslim world, due to their lack of allegiance to the Prophet Muhammad and his tribe, the Quraysh, the custodians of the Ka’ba and the well of ZemZem, they are being humiliated.

Hence, as a form of penitence to God and His Apostle, devout Muslims worldwide pray daily for the advent of Al Mahdi, so they can once again renew their Baiah (Oath of Allegiance) to the Prophet Muhammad through the legacy of the Quraysh, to whom Al Mahdi will also belong, in addition to being from the best clans from within it, the Hashemites and the best of them, the descendents of the Holy Prophet Muhammad, the Ahlul Bayt.

According to Islamic tradition, the Armageddon then will be fought by the Kings of the descendants of Abraham’s sons Ishmael and Isaac. The King of the descendents of the Ishmaelite House will be known as “Al Mahdi”, and will be given allegiance to at the Station of Abraham (Maqam Ibrahim) in Makkah, infront of the Kaba, the House of God which was built by Abraham and Ishmael. Meanwhile, the King of the House of Isaac will be Dajjal (Anti-Christ), who will be attempting to establish his Kingdom in Jerusalem when he will hear about the Mahdi. The Dajjal will then assemble all of his followers and advance against Al Mahdi, claiming him self to be the Messiah and God. At the moment when both armies face each other, God will send Jesus Christ, son of Mary down for the Second Coming.

Muslims believe that Jesus Christ will return to earth and prove that he is that real Christ (Messiah), and that the Seal of Prophets is Muhammad, from the line of Ishmael, who was ‘like unto Moses’. Jesus will then commence war with the Imposter Messiah, and will slay the Anti-Christ of the House of David near Jerusalem. Jesus will then retrieve the Ark of the Covenant with Al Mahdi, who will know of its secret location from the secret letters of Ali ibn Abi Talib, whose brother retrieved it from Ethiopia (Habash) from the Negus, who believed in the Prophet Muhammad and surrendered the Ark to him, and had it returned to Makkah to present it to the Seal of Prophets mentioned in the Gospels of Jesus, from the line of Ishmael, the Holy Prophet Muhammad. The Holy Prophet Muhammad then is reported to have granted it to his son in-law, Ali, who then retrieved from it the Zulfikar Sword and by the power and blessings of the Ark, helped establish for the Prophet Muhammad the State in Medina, and later on the entire Hijaz. See,

Muslims believe that the Ark was secretly guarded by the first four Caliphs, who used its power to establish the Islamic Empire throughout the Middle East, including in Jerusalem.

It is said, during the reign of Ali, the Ark was sent towards Turkey, and the Ottomans became the protectors of the lands wherein it could have been hidden.

Imam Suyuti said,”He (Mahdi) will bring the Ark of the Covenant to light from a place called Antioch.” (Suyuti, al-Hawi li’l Fatawa, II, 82) See Harun Yahya’s account,

When Al Mahdi comes, he will retrieve it and with the help of Jesus Christ, establish the Kingdom of Heaven under the House of Ishmael, as the Gospel of Barnabas records the saying of Jesus Christ himself;

“Whereupon Jesus said: …”Believe me, for verily I say to you, that the promise was made in Ishmael, not in Isaac.'” (Barnabas 43:10)

“And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve mighty princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation” (Genesis 17:20)

The task of the Ottoman Caliphate was to secure the leadership of the bloodline of Ishmael, and that of the Quraysh, when it failed, it fell.

Duration: 06:52 The Ottoman Caliphate was abolished in 1924, ending almost 1300 years of the Caliphate of the Quraysh with brief intervals. Until the demise of the Ottoman Caliphate, the Muslim world remained alligned and united under Baiah (Oath of Allegiance) to the bloodline of the Quraysh and the Oath (Baiah) of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (uwbp). After its abolishment, the Muslim world lost its Oath of Allegiance (Baiah) to the Holy Prophet Muhammad through the link of the Qurayshite inheritance of the Ottomans. The reign of the Quraysh as Caliphs, which began with the first of the Rightly Guided Caliphs, Abu Bakr, then Umar, Usman and Ali was finally destroyed. The Holy Prophet Muhammad told his wife Aisha, in a hadith mentioned by Imam Ahmad, “the Quraysh are the backbone of the people, and the people shall be destroyed as soon as the Quraysh is destroyed”.

Although God’s covenant is still evident with the Muslim world, due to their lack of allegiance to the Prophet Muhammad and his tribe, the Quraysh, the custodians of the Ka’ba and the well of ZemZem, they are being humiliated.

Hence, as a form of penitence to God and His Apostle, devout Muslims worldwide pray daily for the advent of Al Mahdi, so they can once again renew their Baiah (Oath of Allegiance) to the Prophet Muhammad through the legacy of the Quraysh, to whom Al Mahdi will also belong, in addition to being from the best clans from within it, the Hashemites and the best of them, the descendents of the Holy Prophet Muhammad, the Ahlul Bayt.

According to Islamic tradition, the Armageddon then will be fought by the Kings of the descendents of Abraham’s sons Ishmael and Isaac. The King of the descendents of the Ishmaelite House will be known as “Al Mahdi”, and will be given allegiance to at the Station of Abraham (Maqam Ibrahim) in Makkah, infront of the Kaba, the House of God which was built by Abraham and Ishmael. Meanwhile, the King of the House of Isaac will be Dajjal (Anti-Christ), who will be attempting to establish his Kingdom in Jerusalem when he will hear about the Mahdi. The Dajjal will then assemble all of his followers and advance against Al Mahdi, claiming him self to be the Messiah and God. At the moment when both armies face each other, God will send Jesus Christ, son of Mary down for the Second Coming.

Muslims believe that Jesus Christ will return to earth and prove that he is that real Christ (Messiah), and that the Seal of Prophets is Muhammad, from the line of Ishmael, who was ‘like unto Moses’. Jesus will then commence war with the Imposter Messiah, and will slay the Anti-Christ of the House of David near Jerusalem. Jesus will then retrieve the Ark of the Covenant with Al Mahdi, who will know of its secret location from the secret letters of Ali ibn Abi Talib, whose brother retrieved it from Ethiopia (Habash) from the Negus, who believed in the Prophet Muhammad and surrendered the Ark to him, and had it returned to Makkah to present it to the Seal of Prophets mentioned in the Gospels of Jesus, from the line of Ishmael, the Holy Prophet Muhammad. The Holy Prophet Muhammad then is reported to have granted it to his son in-law, Ali, who then retrieved from it the Zulfikar Sword and by the power and blessings of the Ark, helped establish for the Prophet Muhammad the State in Medina, and later on the entire Hijaz. See,

Muslims believe that the Ark was secretly guarded by the first four Caliphs, who used its power to establish the Islamic Empire throughout the Middle East, including in Jerusalem.

It is said, during the reign of Ali, the Ark was sent towards Turkey, and the Ottomans became the protectors of the lands wherein it could have been hidden.

Imam Suyuti said,”He (Mahdi) will bring the Ark of the Covenant to light from a place called Antioch.” (Suyuti, al-Hawi li’l Fatawa, II, 82) See Harun Yahya’s account,

When Al Mahdi comes, he will retrieve it and with the help of Jesus Christ, establish the Kingdom of Heaven under the House of Ishmael, as the Gospel of Barnabas records the saying of Jesus Christ himself;

“Whereupon Jesus said: …”Believe me, for verily I say to you, that the promise was made in Ishmael, not in Isaac.'” (Barnabas 43:10)

“And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve mighty princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation” (Genesis 17:20)

The task of the Ottoman Caliphate was to secure the leadership of the bloodline of Ishmael, and that of the Quraysh, when it failed, it fell.

Prophetic medicine cures cancer-Shaykh Hisham Effendi

Prophetic medicine cures cancer  

By Sufi Master Shaykh Hisham Effendi

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

Peace and Blessings of Allah be up on Prophet Muhammad, his family and companions.

Allah made for every sickness a remedy. We must not accept that there any sickness without remedy. The Prophet Muhammad  mentioned that for every sickness there is a cure. This is the Prophet to whom Allah gave the power of Isra’a and M’iraj (the Night Journey from Mecca to Jerusalem and then the Heavenly Ascension to the Divine Presence) to go to the Presence of Allah. It was a miraculous event that many did not at first accept until the Prophet  gave them proof, telling them what he had seen on the road to masjid al-aqsa in Jerusalem. He told them about the caravans that were due to arrive in Mecca, and they then immediately believed him as no one would know such detail except one who was there. The Prophet was sent by Allah as a mercy, a rahma, to humanity. Every mercy therefore falls under the mercy of the Prophet: health is a mercy, wealth is a mercy, to be in a good position in this life is a mercy, to be in good standing in the hereafter is a mercy, even showers of rain (rahma in Arabic) or snow are mercies. All of this mercy that’s coming, Allah put in the hearts of our master Muhammad and his family, because his family is his blood and his blood is holy. So the one to whom Allah bestowed His Mercy knows what kind of remedy will help against every sickness.

I witnessed many illnesses cured by the remedies prescribed by both my shaykh Abdallah al-Fa’iz al-Daghestani and Grandshaykh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani. These cures come from the Prophet: it is prophetic medicine that so many people are using today under the names “alternative medicine” or “Chinese medicine”.

Real seclusion bears fruit. A real seclusion is not one that you demand, but one that is demanded of you: where the shaykh calls you out of the blue and says, “You, go to seclusion.” When you are in such seclusion and training well, becoming more experienced, every sickness comes to you itself and says, “I am this type of sickness and the remedy for me is this.” According to the level of the one performing the seclusion, there will be prescriptions coming from heavenly sources for many difficult medical situations.

One of the most important sicknesses that people are facing today is cancer. I heard, witnessed, and saw from my sheikh (these are three distinct levels) that cancer can be cured and eliminated from a patient, but the patient must accept what they have to do. My sister was a gynecologist, and she had cancer. As a doctor she wasn’t able to accept anything other than what she’d studied. She went to Shaykh Nazim in the late eighties to speak with him about her case. He told her not operate. As a doctor, she insisted on it- she did the operation on her breast and lived 15 years before passing away. My auntie, who was in her early 50s, also had a cancer. She went to Shaykh Nazim and Granshaykh Abdallah for advice. Her doctors had already decided that she needed to have an operation. The night before the operation was to occur, we went to grandshaykh’s house. This was in the 1970s. He told us to take her out of the hospital, that if she didn’t do the operation she would have another 30 years of life. That night we went back to Beiruit and removed her from the hospital. The next morning they were searching for her, not knowing what had happened. She ended up living another 30 years, passing away at age 85. Meanwhile, my sister went through with her operation and lived only another 15 years.

Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Effendi with HRH Prince Charles at St James’ Palace.

Shaykh Nazim is carrying knowledge of Prophetic medicine that he has inherited by his spiritual connection with the Prophet through the chain of saints. He explained that there is a dormant cancer in every human being. It doesn’t awaken except in certain patients. If we touch the cancer, it will go crazy. Instead of going slowly, if we touch it with a knife the cancer will go wild and spread. He said the best thing is to take onion juice. The Prophet said that although onion and garlic have a bad smell, they are cures for 70 different illnesses that cannot be cured by any other means. So people of Allah recommend onion juice.

Just this past weekend, I was in New York. One of the students brought a lady to me, saying that this was the lady who had cancer before and, thanks be to Allah, she’d been cured. A year before I was in New York, and they had brought to me this lady saying that she had a tumour in her head. She had a child. I told her to drink onion juice. I also read surat al-fatiha (the first chapter of the Koran) seven times onto some water on behalf of Shaykh Nazim, telling her to drink it. One week later she had an x-ray at the hospital and the tumour was gone. It’s not because I read or she took the onion juice, it’s because she believed that it could happen. She believed in Allah and she believed in the Prophet. So a year later I saw her again, and she had been cancer free for the whole time with no operation and no chemotherapy. My recommendation for people with this problem is to take onion juice and to read surat al-fatiha seven times on water, or coffee for example, and drink it. They could alternatively read fatiha seven times and blow on themselves. If they are not able, someone else can read fatiha for them.

May Allah give us healing, shif’a, and give those who are suffering from this sickness healing also, especially Shaykh Nazim`s followers. May Allah make it easy on everyone. He is al-Shafi (The Healer). Ya Rabbi (Oh Lord), You are the One that Cures, there is no one else, we are coming to you, requesting through our master Muhammad and through your saints. We are weak and sinful servants, but we are coming to you. Where else is there to go? Your door is the one people can come to. We are coming to your door asking you to cure every human being, especially those sufferers who have children- to give them happiness in their lives. And to us also, and to our children. Extend our lives to see our master the Mahdi and our master Jesus, for that will be the best time- the golden time. We are asking that Allah will accept from all of us, for there are children here and their supplication is accepted. May Allah for the sake of the saints, our master Muhammad, and ahl bayt (the family of the Prophet) accept from us. Bi hurmati l-habib bi hurmati l-fatihah (by the sanctity of the beloved, by the sanctity of surat al-fatihah)

The Teacher of Angel Gabriel (alaihissalam)

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

The Teacher of Jibrail alaihissalam

One day Rasulullah (alaihiswalathu wa salam) was sitting in the masjid when Jibrail (as)
came and started to have a conversation with him. When the Sahaba-e
Kiram entered and saw that Fakhr-e Alam was busy they understood
that he was conversing with Jibrail (alaihissalam). So they became silent and
sat down.

Then Hazrat Ali (ra) came, gave salam to the Holy Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) and
sat in his place. Then Hazrat Osman (ra) came, gave salam and sat in
his place. Then Hazrat Abu Bakr (Radiyallahu Anhu) entered and gave salam to the
Holy Prophet (saw). Jibrail (alaihissalam) stood up to greet him. So Sultanul
Anbiya (saw) also stood up. When the Ashab-e Kiram saw the Pride of
Creation stand up they also stood up and were amazed at this, for
the Jewel of the Cosmos never stood up when one of his companions

So they asked Rasul-e Akram (saw) about this. And he said:
“When Abu Bakr Siddiq (ra) came into the mesjid and gave salam,
Jibrail (alaihissalam) arose and stood up in respect of the presence of Abu
Bakr. So I also stood up. Then I asked my brother Jibrail (alaihissalam):

“Why did you show such respect to Abu Bakr?”

He replied:

“Ya Rasulullah. Respect for Abu Bakr is wajib for me, because he
my teacher.”

I asked:

“How so?”

Jibrail (alaihissalam) said:
“Ya Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam). When Haqq subhanu wa ta’ala created Adam
he ordered the angels to prostrate before him. Then it came to me
not to do so because I am better than him, for he was created from
clay. For this reason I intended not to prostrate.

At that time, the spirit of Abu Bakr (Radiyallahu Anhu) was in a palace made out
of light under the Divine Throne. The gate of the palace opened and
out came the spirit (ruh) of Abu Bakr Siddiq. And he said to me:

“Ya Jibrail, make prostration. Do not dare to oppose the command
the Lord.”

He repeated this three times and hit me on my back with his hand
three times. At that time arrogance and stubbornness left my heart.
I prostrated to Adam (as). Then from me arrogance and selfness
entered Iblis and he refused to prostrate to Adam (alaihissalam). He became
banished forever and I became blessed with everlasting felicity.

Ya Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam), thus Abu Bakr (radiyallahu anhu) became my teacher.

Do not spread hatred to glorify your Shaykhs and Leaders

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

Unity is the Condition for Peace

Ya Ahad Ya Samad Swalli Alaa Muhammad

Your Love and respect for your beloved people, do not make you hate beloved people of someone else .The condition for, to Love and respect someone should be only Righteousness.

Nowadays,many Sufis and non-Sufis alike are busy with measuring and spreading “Fitnah” (Problems and confusion) among people to show off whose leader/shaikh is better than others shaykh/leader!.

This people have taken some duties, which no one really asked them to do or none of their leaders or Imams authorized them to do so!. Since the beginning of Islam, this group of people are the problem makers in religion. Many deviant setcs originated because of this kind of people’s filth works. The origin of all deviance is from this action. It cause one go out of religion at once. It spread problems between the followers of different groups.

Many people even among Sufis have this problem. They say:This Shaykh is greater than this Shaykh, this Shaykh has more this, more that, his title is this, his title is that…and so on.

What that has to do with you?. Why don’t you mind your own business? . Who authorize you to examine Shyakhs and measure their weight and publish the (fake) result?.

Allah is the best Measurer and Judge, you do not need to associate yourself (Hidden Shirk-Polytheism)  with the Duty of Allah and to be an attraction point.

The Face of the Truth (Haqq) is one. Those who try to split the hearts of True Believers and their leaders, are doing the work for Shaytan.

May Allah save us from this kind of Jahil People.

Love and respect all Emissary of Allah, Do not discriminate between any of them in giving respect and love.

Since the Awliya Allah are the successors of Prophets and Imams ofAhlul Bayth. You must obey the command of Allah.

Quran Says: 

2:285. The Messenger believeth in what hath been revealed to him from his Lord, as 
do the men of faith. Each one [of them] believeth in Allah, His angels, His 
books, and His messengers. "We make no distinction [they say] between one and 
another of His messengers." And they say: "We hear, and we obey: [We seek] Thy 
forgiveness, our Lord, and to Thee is the end of all journeys.

Hadith is giving you a best example

Sahih Al-Bukhari

Book 3 :: Volume 41 :: Hadith 594
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Two persons, a Muslim and a Jew, quarrelled. The Muslim said, “By Him Who gave Muhammad superiority over all the people! The Jew said, “By Him Who gave Moses superiority over all the people!” At that the Muslim raised his hand and slapped the Jew on the face. The Jew went to the Prophet and informed him of what had happened between him and the Muslim. The Prophet sent for the Muslim and asked him about it. The Muslim informed him of the event. The Prophet said, “Do not give me superiority over Moses, for on the Day of Resurrection all the people will fall unconscious and I will be one of them, but I will. be the first to gain consciousness, and will see Moses standing and holding the side of the Throne (of Allah). I will not know whether (Moses) has also fallen unconscious and got up before me, or Allah has exempted him from that stroke.”
Book 3 :: Volume 41 :: Hadith 595
Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri:
While Allah’s Apostle was sitting, a Jew came and said, “O Abul Qasim! One of your companions has slapped me on my face.” The Prophet asked who that was. He replied that he was one of the Ansar. The Prophet sent for him, and on his arrival, he asked him whether he had beaten the Jew. He (replied in the affirmative and) said, “I heard him taking an oath in the market saying, ‘By Him Who gave Moses superiority over all the human beings.’ I said, ‘O wicked man! (Has Allah given Moses superiority) even over Muhammad I became furious
and slapped him over his face.” The Prophet said, “Do not give a prophet superiority over another, for on the Day of Resurrection all the people will fall unconscious and I will be the first to emerge from the earth, and will see Moses standing and holding one of the legs of the Throne. I will not know whether Moses has fallen unconscious or the first unconsciousness was sufficient for him.”


Food-What you eat you will become that

Guidelines for Islamic Food and Impacts

Halal-Islam brings the best lifestyle to you

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

May the Peace and Blessings of Allah be up on Prophet Muhammad, his noble Family and companions, Ameen.

What you eat, you will become that, it does not matter which Family you are from and which position in society you are in!. Always eat Halal(Lawful) Food bought by Halal (Lawful)Money. They way to purify wealth is charity. The way to purify one’s body and mind is fasting 3 days continuously and refrain from “prohibited (Haram) provisions”. Allah brings the Truth and destroys the Falsehood.ALLAHU AKBER.

Foods are three kinds physically and spiritually.

Physically foods are classified as “Contaminated” and “Healthy Food” and “Allergen Foods

Contaminated Food brings dangers such as various sickness and even death, while healthy food brings. Healthy Food nourishes  body and mind, while some foods are allergens to some people even though it is healthy to some other people. Allergen foods can bring same impacts like Contaminated Food.

Allergen Food is not our Business, we mind our own business. Because it is safe to be with what is not doubtful and to leave what is not concern us (Refer 40 Hadiths of Imam Nawawi-Radiyallahu Anhu).

Regardless of our faith, we eat healthy foods, because of our concern to be physically healthy and to live long.

Islam calls for Natural and Home made Food

But What about Spiritual Foods?

Islam classifies Foods into 2 Categories: “Halal”(Lawful) Food, “Haram” (Unlawful) and “Disliked Foods”.

Halal Foods: Foods that Nourishes the Body, Mind and Soul is called Halal Food. The Food which is made lawful by the Book of Allah and law of the religion. Eating such food is an act of good deed and rewarded by God. The food does not have any side effects as well as some kind of Halal Food may have some kind of notable medicinal value. For example: Vinegar, Dates and Garlic.

Halal Food Chain:

  • The Lawful Lands to the Farmer
  • Lawful seeds to the farmer
  • Lawful Fertilisers
  • Labour is Paid lawfully-related to the farmer
  • Lawful sales between trader and farmer.
  • A Lawful trade between Trader and Consumer
  • A Lawful cooking by the consumer
  • A lawful final consumption by the end user. i.e saying: “Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem”.

Sufism is Ihsan. Ihsan is the perfection of the religion. That is to observe the law of Allah ”Shari’a”  and “Iman” (Faith) in the best way. That means to follow religion as you see ALLAH even though you now see him, HE sees you.

To be God conscious in every moment of life. In every breath in every heart beat. That is the real saint hood. Sainthood is not satisfy the thinking of the people!. A saint does not listen to the word of the ego:”What people think if I say this, or if I do this?”

Sainthood seeks the “Supreme Soul-The Holy Spirit and the God. That is to Satisfy the Holy Spirit of Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings of Allah be up on him) and Allah. That is to Satisfy only “La Ilaha Illa Allahu Muhammadu Rasoolullahi”.

Haram Foods

The Foods prohibited in Islam are those Foods and drinks which keep you away from remembrance of God Almighty and make you unhealthy-both mentally and physically.

Alcohol based foods and drinks pork based food and drinks are strongly prohibited. All intoxicants are widely prohibited in Islam. It also include “Tobacco and Cigars”. It is clear that Tobacco and cigars are more dangerous than Alcohol. Alcohol mostly affects those who consume it. But Cigars have adverse affects on people who are near a smoker. Passive Smoking affects many including children and pregnant women. The harm is more than any other intoxicants. Without doubt, tobacco and products like Cigars are “Haram” in Islam.

Alcohol is known as the key of “All evil”. It is the door of Satan.  Islam aims only healthy physical and spiritual living for all mankind.

No Smoking,No Alcohol,No Drugs

People who eat this kind of food will show the quality of the food in the life style.

For example of someone consume Alcohol that will contaminate his body and mind and it have a bad impact on his long term life, it may be either in body or in mind or in both.

Smokers will not attain peace of mind with it. Alcohol consumption also do the same. Spiritual destruction is more than physical destruction.

If you say now many Muslims are drinking and smoking. Then you are researching Islam from a wrong side. Islam must be researched and learnt from the righteous scholars and leaders of the past and their successors. Please do not judge Islam from the worst people who claim to be it’s followers.

May Allah Help us to keep HIS Laws and Commands amen. Thereby we may become successful in this world and hereafter.

The Danger of Scanning Pregnant Women

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

Scanning Affect the Mind and Natural Body Functioning of the Baby


Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al Haqqani-Sulthanul Awliya always warn his followers:Do not go for Scanning for pregnancy”.


Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim

“If you are getting pregnant, don’t go to doctor.  It is dangerous, because they are bringing to me everyday children with handicap. 

‘Oh Shaykh, look outside’ … (even) in their same hearts (a holes –Maulana moves hands resembling the image of a hole in heart of the baby).  So many things that it is giving trouble to people.  Therefore don’t go.  It is a big sin.  Pregnant woman only go to midwife.

We are never accepting.  Prophet –saaws- never accepting, Allah Almighty is angry (on) whom they are making this (Maulana makes gestures with hands of scans of ultrasound) … laser, very dangerous.

Therefore it is my will (advise) to you, don’t send your wife.

Only when your wife saying that she is pregnant, one (can make qurban) for the honor of Abdul Qadir Jilani (qs) and Nafisa al Tahira (qs).  You know Jilani also.  Make it and give to poor people.  And daily put on her two taawiz, one for her, one for her baby.  They are responsible to complete that baby through womb of his mommy, Hazreti Jilani and Nafisa al Tahira. Two taawiz.

(Maulana gives two nakshibendi taawiz to the woman) Put this, one for you and one for your baby.  (And) When baby comes, put on him this (one tawiz).

And daily, two sadaqa.  One for her, one for the child.

Don’t worry, ok?  No need for doctor.  I am fighting with such a doctors”.

(From ‘Chapters of Advice’ on published on April 22, 2011).


And What Science says about Scanning, for those who want proof for the actions and words of the Saints of Allah

Ultrasound – More powerful, more dangerous, more unethical

By Jean Robinson

AIMS Journal, Winter 1999/2000, Vol 11 No 4

When Professor Stuart Campbell says he is worried about the way ultrasound is being used on unborn children we should listen. Hitherto he has been the great apologist and defender – oft quoted in the press as saying it has been used on millions of babies and there is no evidence of harm (a claim which AIMS has strongly disputed, of course.)

However, recently he and Dr Platt his co-editor of a specialist journal on ultrasound were faced with a dilemma. [1] Two studies were submitted on early human embryos, and the most powerful forms of ultrasound – pulsed and colour Doppler – had been used. [2,3] These create intensities many times higher than normal scans. And, as we already know, when the probe is inserted into the vagina, as in this case, the ultrasound does not have to go through the wall of abdomen, which absorbs some of the energy. The journal had previously published studies where pulsed Doppler was used at 11-14 weeks gestation, but when it came down to 10 weeks it seems the editors became concerned.

The editors admit there is “a serious lack of experimental data on the effects on the fetus of colour and pulsed Doppler ultrasound when performed transvaginally in the first trimester.” (In fact there is no adequate information on long term effects on the human embryo or fetus of ultrasound exposure via the mother’s vagina or of exposure to colour and pulsed Doppler at any stage of pregnancy). And these were being used before 10 weeks gestation when the organs were not even formed. Please note that this was non-therapeutic research – there was no way it was going to benefit the mothers or babies concerned.

Was it ethical for the journal to publish the studies? They consulted their large international editorial board. Two members thought that such research should only be done if the woman was going to have an abortion. A third agreed, but said Doppler could be used if it was of proven clinical value.

But in that case, said the editors, how would doctors be able to find out if early studies could predict later problems in pregnancy? (Not that there is any early treatment for such problems, of course, even if they can be predicted, and the track record for benefits of later ultrasound is poor, as our readers will know)

The editors have therefore evolved an “ethical policy” for future publication. It includes “informed patient consent” – and the patient information sheet is to be submitted to the journal. May we suggest they actually publish the information so we can all see it? Since there is, at the moment no information on what happens to children exposed as tiny embryos to the most powerful forms of diagnostic ultrasound, it will be intriguing to see what women are to be told. It is far from reassuring to see a piece in the same issue by Chervenak (one of the editorial board) and McCullough, both ultrasound experts, simply saying “Pregnant women should be assured that only appropriate power levels will be used in fetal Doppler ultrasound studies. They should also be informed that there are no documented risks to the fetus at such power levels, that the research may benefit her fetus or her.” [4] Appropriate for what and for whom? As a veteran member of three research ethics committees I don’t know whether to be surprised at their ignorance or amazed at their effrontery.

The research must be also approved by an ethics committee, say the editors. But that is standard procedure in any reputable medical journal anyway. The two studies they published were approved by local ethics committees in Finland and Philadelphia, whose members now have egg on their faces. In future the information provided to the ethics committee on safety must also be submitted to the journal So how come they did not ask for all this information before publishing the two studies? We suggest they publish that information too, especially since the consumer interpretation of risk often differs from Professor Campbell’s. [5]

Their future policy also includes insisting that the equipment must display the safety limits for the thermal index (TI) – how much the tissue may be heated – and the mechanical index (MI) – which refers to the force which can cause gas bubbles to be formed, stream and possibly damage tissue – and might show effects of radiation pressure. The embryo is submitted to a forward force every time a pulse passes through it. As medical physicist Dr Frances Duck points out, diagnostic Doppler ultrasound causes higher exposure than normal scans, and can heat soft tissue. [4] (From many human and animal studies we know that raised temperatures can cause abnormalities.)

In fact the TI is already known to be inadequate, because it does not estimate what happens to the tissues near the transducer. When ultrasound equipment is used in the oesophogaus, the transducers have a cut-out mechanism if they become too warm. Vaginal probes do not.

Frances Duck had already warned that the revised standards allowed since by the FDA since the early 1990s do not prevent the sale of excessively powerful machines.[6] And now we don’t even know how powerful they are. The ultrasound power is measured by the waves it creates in water. After a certain point the water becomes saturated so higher power is simply not measurable by this method.

The future ethical code of the journal also insists that exposure times must be based on the ALARA principle (As Low as Reasonably Achievable) and that exposure times must be given. We do not find this reassuring. A radiographer would use the least and shortest exposure to X-ray a fetus – but we don’t X-ray the fetus at all unless it is absolutely necessary. Please note there was no unexposed control group in either study, and no plans are mentioned for follow up of the children.

What we find surprising is that neither study tells us how many of the babies were born alive, and in what condition.

48 women were studied in America; 60% of them had had ovulation induced. They had ultrasounds at 4-5 weeks, and then every two weeks until 13-14 weeks. Ten pregnancies miscarried before 13 weeks, having been involved in 27 studies, and the remaining 38 women had 145 examinations. We are told the surviving 38 pregnancies “progressed to term without any significant fetal complication or anomaly detected”. For all we know the babies could be dead, but “normal”. How odd that the editors did not require more detailed final data from such a meticulous study of the earliest fetal heartbeats. The authors show that the babies which miscarried were less likely to show early heart valve activity. Were these pregnancies destined to end, or were they the babies more vulnerable to ultrasound?

In the study from Ouolu, Finland, researchers looked at the development of the yolk sac in 16 women who had examinations at 5, 7, 8 and 10 weeks. They started with 20 but four were excluded because two pregnancies were outside the uterus, one was anembryonic and one was aneuploid. (We are not told at what stage the missing embryo or chromosome abnormality were detected.) The only information we get on outcome in the rest is “The course and the outcome of all pregnancies were uncomplicated.” So – did they go to term, what were their Apgar scores, did they spend time in intensive care, were they born alive, are they still alive? After providing us with copious information about blood flow in yolk sacs, surely the authors could spare a sentence to tell us what happened to the babies, and it is surprising the journal did not require it.

There is no doubt that these studies can come up with interesting scientific information. The question is, what price will some mothers and babies be paying to provide it – and how shall we ever know, when it’s only the powerless consumers who want to find out?

It is significant that one of the studies was done on women who had had fertility treatment. It is on this group that transvaginal probes and ultrasonic study of embryos began – these women were only too willing to agree to investigations they thought might help and give them early indication of pregnancy. Is it coincidence that outcome of such pregnancies – the most closely monitored of all – is so poor, with a high rate of both abnormalities and deaths?

Ultrasound scans may disrupt fetal brain development

Ultrasound examinations may disrupt normal brain development in unborn

Nearly 7000 had received ultrasonic scans in the womb, while 170,000 had not. Kieler found that of the men born between 1976 and 1978 who had ultrasonic scans in the womb, 32 per cent more than expected were left-handed. In an average population, around nine per cent of men are left-handed.

The scientists took account of factors such as premature birth, birth weight and maternal age, but admit that they cannot rule out post-natal environmental influences for the effect they found.

The results suggest that some men who genetically would have been expected to be born right-handed had actually grown up to be left-handed. Kieler says this could be due to a disruption of their brain development in the womb: “It’s commonly known among neuropsychiatrists that right-handed people can become left-handed by slight damage to the brain.”

Wider window

She says it is significant that the effect was only found in men born in 1976 and later. That year, it became common in Sweden for expectant mothers to have two ultrasonic scans – one after 17 weeks of pregnancy and another after 37 weeks.

Currently in the UK, women typically have one or two ultrasonic scans during pregnancy, although more can be recommended to track a particular condition in the fetus.

In a study published in 1999, Kieler found that handedness of girls was not affected by ultrasound. The difference, she says, could be down to the way the brain develops in each sex.

“Brain development in males takes place over a longer period compared with the female, so there’s a wider window for external factors to have an effect,” she says.

Vibrating bubbles

How ultrasound could affect the brain is still a mystery though. Kieler suspects that a process called cavitation – where small bubbles in the body fluids vibrate in the ultrasonic waves – could influence brain development.

“In the early stage of pregnancy, neurons migrate from the centre of the brain and this could be disturbed by ultrasound, maybe by cavitation,” she says.

“This is a big gap in our knowledge,” says Duck. “If ultrasound is having this effect, we have to take it seriously, but right now, we just don’t know what is going on.”

Duck adds that ultrasonic scans are needed to track fetal development and to check for abnormalities. “It would be inappropriate for people to start cancelling their appointments, but this ought to act as a real stimulus for more work on this,” he says.

It is truly a sinister agenda to “to destroy the spirituality and natural lifestyle of human being during pregnancy itself. The materialist atheist world expects human being to be like “Robots” and “Animals”

Western people , look at your own babies behaviour and character development. Most of the babies who were exposed to constant scanning will definitely have “Rude behaviour and immoral lifestyle”.

They will grow up and will not be bound by traditional lifestyle  and they will not be family oriented in respecting parents and peers.

Some women tend to do scanning to get some grants and benefits of a pregnant woman.In the long term you are giving birth for a baby, which you are responsible for how the babies are growing and how they are like.

Abortion is Murder!

Abortion is  another result of scans. Abortion is actually infanticide.

مَن قَتَلَ نَفْساً بِغَيْرِ نَفْسٍ أَوْ فَسَادٍ فِى الاٌّرْضِ فَكَأَنَّمَا قَتَلَ النَّاسَ جَمِيعاً وَمَنْ أَحْيَـهَا فَكَأَنَّمَا أَحْيَا النَّاسَ جَمِيعاً if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land – it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind

Hadith: Signs of Qiyama: Killing, killing, killing. (Bukhari, Muslim, Ibn Majah, & Ahmad).

Hadith: By He in Whose hand is my soul! The world shall not pass [away] before there comes upon people a day in which the murderer will not know why he has murdered, nor will the murdered one know why he has been killed. (Muslim).

It is ALLAH who protect the baby in the womb.You can do nothing there, except harm the baby or abort the baby!

Hadith:On the authority of Abdullah bin Masud, who said : the messenger of Allah, and he is the truthful, the believed narrated to us :
p “Verily the creation of each one of you is brought together in his mother’s belly for forty days in the form of seed, then he is a clot of blood for a like period, then a morsel of flesh for a like period, then there is sent to him the angel who blows the breath of life into him and who is commanded about four matters: to write down his means of livelihood, his life span, his actions, and whether happy or unhappy. By Allah, other than Whom there is no god, verily one of you behaves like the people of Paradise until there is but an arm’s length between him and it, and that which has been written over takes him and so he behaves like the people of Hell-fire and thus he enters it; and one of you behaves like the people of Hell-fire until there is but an arm’s length between him and it, and that which has been written over takes him and so he behaves like the people of Paradise and thus he enters it.”

Where is the Faith (Imaan) of 21st Century So called Muslims?!

So, Do not interfere the job of  Angel!, parents and doctors mind your own business,otherwise you are looking for  a defected Child!
