Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

Friday, 13 Shawwal 1430 (October 2, 2009)

Sheykh Efendi is warning believers to obey ALLAH swt and to fear ALLAH. A heedless person cannot be doing this; they are not careful of where they are stepping and what they are getting into. sheytan is whispering, leading heedless ones to jehennam (hell). Obey ALLAH and follow a guide – not sheytan.

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.

Today’s people are not even remembering ALLAH swt when they are in sejde. They are preoccupied with love of the world (dunya) – car, bank account, children, whatever. People are fearing death. But If you put love of ahirat in your heart, you have no worries. Dunya will run after you. Be aware of the state you are in when making salat, that ALLAH swt is watching you, and that Azrael (Angel of Death) is very near.

Sheykh Efendi also tells us the story of Namrud and Ibrahim (aleyhis salam) — that Namrud declared lordship to Allah and was defeated by a tiny, crippled mosquito. Today’s 21st century people, who don’t even have any power, are acting and trying to live like Namrud, declaring lordship to Allah. We must wake up!

Someone asked a question. Sheykh Abdul Kerim Efendi responded by saying to take one fault at a time and try to correct it. ALLAH swt, His Holy Prophet pbuh, and the awliya are watching you. They are watching to see if you correct your mistakes. Make rabita every day to understand what you are doing wrong in their eyes. What are you doing and what was your intention? Make tauba and ask for their help. Then try to not do those things, and to become a better servant. Every day the believer must progress. Then the veils of the heart begin to open.

Muslims are not living what they believe, and will not leave correct Islam to their children. Faith is not moving people. Istanbul will be conquered again, but not by heedless, dreaming people. Check yourself. Live for the sake of Allah, for Islam.
