Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

Thursday evening, 1431 Jumada al-Awwal 28 (May 13, 2010)

Someone asked about participating in family time that is centered around the TV. Sheykh Efendi is asking what is your intention – to please them or to please ALLAH swt? A person is responsible for their children until they reach maturity. Then they are responsible for themselves. Everyone is given intelligence to know what is right and free will to choose. There is no need to jump into non-Muslim lifestyle because others do. A responsible person must do what ALLAH swt orders for him.

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

Friday, Muharrem 15, 1431 (January 1, 2010)

Sheykh Efendi is saying that Muslims and Muslim countries are celebrating the fake new year, instead of the Islamic new year that began with Muharram. This is not a faith that will save you. Holy Prophet (saws) challenged unbelievers to curse the insincere ones. They refused, knowing it was themselves. But some Muslim leaders are preferring unbelievers. Shaky faith will make you to become like them if you follow their practices.

Friday, Zul Hijja 22, 1430 (December 11, 2009)

Sheykh Efendi is saying that the holy month of Muharram is entering. Year 1430 is ending. Follow someone, and become a thankful servant. If you are living for ALLAH, no attacks from anyone can harm you. Be thankful even for your body, before it fails and Azrael comes. Ask forgiveness. Change to do better. Sit and meditate, think about what you are doing and why. you are accountable for the intention behind your deeds.

Friday, 27 Shawal 1430 (October 16, 2009)

Sheykh Efendi is saying not to interfere with work that is not yours – especially in regard to religion. Prophet (saws) is saying that if you live the knowledge you know, ALLAH swt will teach you what you do not know. It’s not university knowledge. It’s the knowledge of how to become better; it is taken from a master, a teacher. It is learning that your ego is your enemy, and trying to fix yourself before the Angel of Death comes for you..

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 11 Shawwal 1429 (October 10, 2008)

“Say: If it be that your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your mates, or your kindred; the wealth that you have gained; the commerce in which you fear a decline; or the dwellings in which you delight, are dearer to you than ALLAH swt or His Messenger saws, or the striving in His cause- then wait until ALLAH swt brings about His decision. And ALLAH swt does not guide the rebellious ones.” Ayats 23 and 24 from Surah al-Tauba.

Sheykh Abdul Kerim Efendi is saying, if man does not have guidance, where does he end up? This is ahir zaman (end times), everyone has some love other than ALLAH swt and His Prophet saws. You can have one excuse, one billion excuses, they are not enough. Someone asked a question. Sheykh Efendi is saying intentions are important, and your sincerity. What is the intention behind things you do? If the intention is good, the result is going to be good. If the result is not good, check your intention- something is wrong somewhere. Don’t look to blame somebody else except yourself.
