Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

Friday, August 28, 2009 (Ramazan 8, 1430)

Sheykh Efendi is saying that during Ramadan, shaytan is in chains. So you cannot blame shaytan for your wrongdoings. It is the ego declaring itself. Look carefully at your intention before taking action or speaking. Fasting in this month should help us become better servants. When you start correcting yourself, everything around you is going to be correct. Today’s people are trying to correct the other ones. Correct yourself first. Tarikat teaches you to rise from the lower self to higher stations.

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

Friday, 1 Ramadan 1430 (August 21, 2009)

Sheykh Efendi was saying that Ramazan is the month of rahmet and mercy for the believers who take it seriously, trying to come closer to ALLAH swt. It is the month of patience – to have authority on yourself and to show compassion to the ones you have authority over. The worst confusion is going to come out from the shaykhs and the imams in the hutbe place – calling people toward dunya. Prophet saws said that for your good deeds during Ramazan, the rewards are multiplying. Fast from all haram and from your bad habits.

Those people who keep the order of Allah with fasting, they should be happy. And those who left the fasting should be very sad. The world has taken everyone hostage. This month should be purifying us — it is not for us just to abstain from eating and drinking. Holy Prophet (sws) said, about Ramadan: “The first ten days are Mercy (Rahmet), the second ten are Forgiveness (Maghfirat), and the last ten are Safety (Nejat).” We must make intention, in this month, and especially in the last 10 days, to sit somewhere quiet for the sake of Allah and remember Him. If you are making that intention, Allah will make it easy for you.
