Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

Friday afternoon Safar 22, 1431 (February 5, 2010)

Someone took bayat on the telephone. Afterwards, Sheykh Abdul Kerim Efendi is saying that to progress in tarikat, you must connect with someone who represents Holy Prophet Muhammad (saws) on earth in these times. Spend a few minutes a day to build the connection. Initiation sets your tombstone in place; now you begin to prepare for your grave. Naksibendi Hakkani way forbids anger. The Shaykh teaches what you need. There is nothing you can give the Shaykh.

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.

Thursday evening Zul Hijja 14, 1430 (December 3, 2009)

Sheykh Abdul Kerim Efendi is saying to try to understand what is beyond the grave, and be sincere about what you bringing there. If you are not sincere with yourself, you cannot hide it. Stop complaining; this means you are happy with your Lord. After hardship comes ease, then hardship again. ALLAH swt puts everyone under test. Be patient with the tests. It is easier when you are living for the sake of ALLAH.

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

Saturday, 18 Ramazan 1428 (September 29, 2009)

Sheykh Efendi is saying all burdens are lifted from people sitting in an association for sohbet. Know who you are; then you can know your Lord. All the knowledge is nothing without good manner (adab, edeb). The summary of necessary knowledge is knowing that a mustard seed of good actions brings reward, and a mustard seed of bad brings punishment. Difference between anger and jilal. Wake up before it is too late.

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.

Friday, June 27, 2008 (23 Jumad al-Thani, 1429)

ALLAH swt is ready to forgive His servants. He has provided special nights during the months of Rajab, Shaban, and Ramazan for us to ask for forgiveness — if only we show respect to these months and these nights. Problems that seem to interfere with paying attention during those months comes from us breaking our promise, and dropping sincerity. Shaytan is in chains, so try to do better every day to control the ego.
