Seek Waseela of Shah-E-Mardan (Imam Ali Alaihissalam)

Bismillahi RahmanI Raheem

What does man want? He wants honour. Allahu Akbar. Dastur, ey Shah-i Mardan. That’s how it is. What do we want in this world? A house, some land, gardens. vineyards, gold and money. What good comes to man from these things? Why does he desire them? He wants these things as means for him to gain honour. That’s it. wa-btaghū ilayhi l-wasīla (5:35), seek the means to draw close to Him. The holy verse: wa-btaghū – ibtighā; ibtighā does not signify an ordinary request or desire. There is this, and then Allah Almighty also says: as’alu-llāha min fadlihi, ask of Allah from His Bounty. Shaykh Mehmet Efendi. as’alu-llāha min fadlihi, Ask Allah Almighty for His Bounty. as’alu-llāha min fadlihi. Ask of the gracious Bounty of Allah in whom you have placed your faith. wa-btaghū ilayhi l-wasīla (5:35), seek the means to draw close to Him. There should be in you an endless desire. Do not say, ‘Up to here!’ Wasīla.

Come, O Shah-i Mardan. Allahu Akbar. As Allah is Akbar, the Greatest, His grant also possesses the greatest strength. Ask nothing of anybody else. wa-btaghū ilayhi l-wasīla (5:35) Look to find wasīla. What for? In order to gain even greater closeness to Allah Almighty. When wasīla is mentioned, look for the means to draw near, Allah, Allah, Subhan Allah. If a person plans to pay a visit to the Sultan, he seeks the means to do so. He seeks one who will introduce him into the presence of the Sultan. O heedless person, why don’t you seek the means of gaining access to the Presence of your Creator? wa-btaghū ilayhi l-wasīla. (5:35) O our Lord, grant us strength! For the sake of His Beloved (sallallahu alaihi wa aalihi wa sallam). This is an important point. Seek the means to draw near to Him, the Lord of Might and Glory. Come, O Shah-i Mardan, come and be our means of drawing near. All you who are in attendance, marhaba. And all of you listening, marhaba.

Let there be comfort and ease. inna ardī wāsi‘atun, fa iyyāya fa‘budūn. (29:56) There is no limit to My Dominion. However, inna ardī wāsi‘atun, fa iyyāya fa‘budūn. (29:56) He says: Do not look at My Dominion, look instead at My Kingdom. wa-btaghū ilayhi l-wasīla. (5:35) In order to reach to My Kingdom, you must look for the means to approach. Ya. Seek such means. For us it is Shah-i Mardan, he is our means for drawing close to Him. Because of him (S.Mardan) we have light, and joy, and cheer. He who forgets about Allah, he has neither gladness, nor ease, nor happiness. It is a shame for him. You must seek to draw near to the Lord of Glory. You must seek Nearness to Allahu Dhu l-Jalāl, the Sultan. O our Lord, let us be among those who understand this.

Divine Message of the Sufi

BismillahirRahmanirRahim

“Divine Message of the Sufi”

Islam is two principles, sitting on two principles, one is to learn how to worship your Lord. Second, learn to help and to reach his creations. If the person does these two things, then he will reach to the highest stations. Without separating, saying “this is Jew, this is Christian, this is black, this is white, this is green, this is yellow.” In originally, we are all created from the same thing, we have the same material, same creation material.

So Allah saying to us in the Holy Quran, “we have separate you in different nations, in different tribes, to go find one and each other, to learn from each other, to exchange, to learn, to improve yourself, to become better ones. To become better ones to the Divine service.”

In reality, we are all for Divine service. We are not for our own service, our own ego’s service, but for the greater service. We have to be in His service, when we are in His service, that time, we will be able to look at His creatures, saying “this is His creature, my duty is to serve that creature. If I’m serving my Lord, my duty is to serve that creature.”

So this is the name, the faith I believe every one of us here we are sharing. I don’t think anyone here finding the separation here. Our duty is to love each other as a man, and to respect each other, respect each other’s rights. And learn how to know, how to communicate, how to love each other.

When we learn how to love each other, then we will be able to reach to our Creator. One of the Hadith, the relating Hadith meaning the words of the Holy Prophet Muhammad, Alayhi salam wa tu Salaam saying to us, “ The one who doesn’t says la ilaha illallah, Meaning la ilaha illallah, there is no God but only one who created all. Because the people they have invented Gods to themselves. They built idols and they did so many things. They started worship to those things, and they said, ‘this is our God.’”

So the Holy Prophet Muhammad SAWS is saying, “la ilaha illallah, there is no Gods man can created, but illallah, that One who have created everyone.” Anyone who says these words and they believe, they are entering into paradise. That means that one has a faith.

He says, “but if you don’t love each other, if you don’t learn how to love each other, even if you are saying that word, you are not really reaching to the main roots of the faith .”
