Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

Friday, Muharrem 11, 1432 (December 17, 2010)

Sheykh Abdul Kerim Efendi is asking “What qualifies a person to speak on behalf Islam?” Then he goes on to say that philosophy, reading books on hadith, and relying on your experience in a secular system are not preparation for speaking about Islam. Knowledge of the ayats of the Kuran, living the Sunnah, and consultation are required. Without these, do not speak.

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

Thursday evening, Muharrem 14, 1431 (December 31, 2009)

In response to a murid’s question, Sheykh Abdul Kerim Efendi is saying that a physically disabled person is safe from running around and getting into wrong situations. Two types of people who will be able to give intercession for others on Judgement Day. One group are the able-bodied who work for the sake of ALLAH swt and who suffer through heavy tests without complaining. The second group are people who were not given legs or arms or able bodies. ALLAH swt will compensate them in Ahirat with what they want. Also, those ones who could not run around will intercede for able-bodied sinners.

Friday, Muharrem 2, 1431 (December 18, 2009)

Sheykh Efendi is saying that a believer is a good one, taking care of what is for him. Today must be better than yesterday. Aim for ahirat by pleasing ALLAH (for example, by fasting) to be able to carry life’s burdens. shaytan is always whispering, driving people crazy with doubt. Don’t judge others. Keep the holy days of Muharrem special. Your life style shows the health of your shehada..

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 JumadAwal 17, 1429 (May 23, 2008)

Someone asked a question. Sheykh Abdul Kerim Efendi is saying your body is not yours to do what you want. Allah swt has given mankind a free will, but everything is happening inside the general will. This body does not belong to you, from where did you get the right to destroy it? You can no authority on your body. For mumins (believers), there is no depression. For any situation you are in, Allah swt opens a door for you for a way out. Allah swt is saying to us He is going to test us through our wealth, health, children, loved ones- all this, it is only a confusion. The love, you don’t have to have anything in return in the love. It does not fit to the majesty of Allah swt to burden His servant with something he cannot carry- He is sending the patience and power to you to carry it.

Sohbet from 2008

Some elderly people are so alive and still able to work in the world because they are working for the sake of ALLAH swt. Others are still running after dunya, and are expired while they are still in this world. Reminder – the Angel of death is coming. Story of Sheykh Efendi’s mother. Patience in the first moment of test, not after you get used to it. Zakat.

Thursday, 17 Ramazan 1428 (September 28, 2007)

Sheykh Efendi is saying humans and jinns were created to know ALLAH swt and to worship ALLAH swt. If a person is not doing that, there is no peace. People are punctual for their business in dunya, but not for the work of ALLAH swt. ALLAH swt is forgiving as long as we have the breath of life, if only we ask sincerely. But we have to keep the reason of our creation alive in ourselves all the time. We gave the promise to be in His service on the Day of Promises. You can live as you like, but there is not much time left to become a good servant. Leave laziness and resting and run in the way of ALLAH swt to catch up what you have left behind.
