Divine Message of the Sufi

“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 .”

Islamic Morals and Manners Give you Success in the Tarikat

Saint of Islam Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al–Kibrisi (Q.S) Wali of Allah


To be a murid, you need to have Adab, you need to have manners. Everything starts opening to a man who has manners. The more opens to him the more obedient he becomes to his Sheykh then. He can see the Paradises, he can enter and come back, but he will never leave his Sheykh then because what he is looking for is not even in Paradise. It is in his Sheykh’s hand and nobody else carries that.

Today Sufism, tariqat becomes people’s running to have some entertainment. Some are running to have some comfort. Some are already fed up with the outside world and they are getting old. They are tired of sitting home and so they are running to tariqat. This is the mentality of today’s tariqat. But did tariqats change and did Sheykhs lose that power?

No. They still have it. They are circling around this world and they are checking people. You may be sitting next to him for twenty years and you may get nothing. He is circling in the world, he is looking and he says, “This one has good behavior.” He gives it to that one and walks away. He never finishes. The more he gives the more comes. But can you give diamond to the hand of an ignorant person? Can you take a diamond and throw it in front of a pig? What is he going to do with it?

So first you have to know what the treasure is. You have to know what you are looking for. And to get that you have to know what you have to sacrifice. You have to sacrifice something. Everyone has to sacrifice something. If you are not sacrificing it means that you are not really ready and prepared to get what is there. You just want it for your own ego.

So yes, in tariqat sometimes Sheykhs show the people the most luxurious life and sometimes they show them the worst lifestyle that people are going through. You have to go through it to understand. You may be with the Sheykh one week and you will be living like a king and the next week you will be living like a beggar in the street. Sheykh
has the right to tell you, “Let’s go, we are going outside now to start begging from people.”

Huh, what will you do then? If you have no submission, what are you going to do? You are going to say, “He is a thief. Is he trying to teach me how to steal or to ask from people?”

So submission comes with everything you have. You no longer have your own ideas of thinking and understanding. If you cannot think the way that the Sheykh is directing you then it is forbidden for you to think and to try to analyze things by your own self because you are going to come to the wrong understanding. Sheytan is going to be there. So your Sheykh is not there. Sheytan is going to be your Sheykh. And you are still going to say, “He is my Sheykh.” But no. Sheytan is your Sheykh. Sheytan is giving you directions then.

Foot Note:
Good morals and manners alone does not make anyone Sufi or inheritor of the spiritual lineage of the Sufi Path. One must have a true Sufi Shaykh and should be sincere to his/her Shaykh.

To Strive in the Path-Be Humble and Patient


Waliyullahi Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S) Sahibu Saif
Waliyullahi Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S)
Sahibu Saif

We have counted days on this world. If a man calls himself, ‘I’m smart,’ he must know how he is using these days and how he is spending his daily activities.

Don’t think that 21st century people, they have invented the technology, the computer, the planes, they are dancing and modernising, that they have reached somewhere. No. they become more animals, worse than animals. Because in the old days, people at least they were running to keep some orders. Now, the one who is in the order, they are not keeping orders. The ones that who’s saying, ‘I am Muslim, I am believer,’ is not keeping what Allah is ordering.

The knowledge and the stations that the people they are reaching in this world, it is to make the man to become humble. Not to be proud with himself with the knowledge and with everything that he is doing. No. the knowledge, it is to teach you who you are and who your Lord is. Knowledge, it is to teach us that He (swt) is forever; Abadi and Samavi Lord. And you are Abadi and Samavi servant.

Those people in jahiliyyah time also they have houses. According to their time, they have nice clothes that they were wearing. They had their own laws. They think that they were on the right ways, so many of them. When Holy Prophet came and say to them, ‘this is the wrong road. You are going towards the direction of sheytan, to Jahannam. Turn your face to Jannat,’ they uprise to the Prophet (asws).

Some children, they went with the Prophet. Parents they know and they said, ‘he’s putting wrong manners to our children.’ Some, their parents went with the Prophet, their children started rising against to the Prophet. Some wives went to the Prophet, the husbands were rising against to the Prophet. Some husbands went to the Prophet, wives rising against to the Prophet.

Same thing is happening now. Don’t think that you are just, ‘ohh.. so hard for me. Ohh..this is too hard.’ What is hard for you?

You are not putting one step forward. Not ten. You are not giving up from anything. Nothing. You are just leaving the Kufr lifestyle. That’s all. Later claiming, ‘I am Muslims. We are the best of the Muslims.’

No you are not. Allah is saying to us, ‘if you want to change, be with Saliheen.’ Be with those ones. Listen to them. Take it from them and learn and apply to your life.

If you are taking this sohbet seriously, you have to show serious activities. If you don’t take it, it’s still okay with me. I will speak. But we must wake up to our own selves. The Tornado is about to happen. We must wake up before it’s too late.

What is cleanness and what is dirtiness in Islam?


Sahibu Saif Hazret Shaykh abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S)
Sahibu Saif Hazret Shaykh abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S)

What is cleanness and what is dirtiness in Islam?

The Physical cleanness, everyone is clean, they go to the shower two, three times a day. But the dirtiness is the disobedience.

Sheytan was a beautiful creature, he was shining inside the Paradises. Angels, they were looking up to that one. His appearances was very beautiful too. Soon as he became disobedience to Allah, that Nur, that light went away, and he turned into the worst ugly creature through disobedience. And he was sent down to earth. He changed all that with disobedience.

Islam came to make us to be clean, to be clean from every wrong ideas and to enter into Paradise. Allah swt is saying to us, ‘You must come out clean because where you came from is Paradise and Paradise is for clean people. When you go to the world you are dirtying yourself. Clean yourself before you come out from it and only then will you come back to Paradise. Otherwise, if you didn’t clean yourself in the world, then the fire is waiting for you because the fire is the only thing that will clean you.’

Maybe you don’t know but I used to do welding job. I was a welder and I used to do swords. I work on big pieces of metals that were very rusty. There was a coal fire burning and when I put that rusty metal inside the fire, the whole thing turned red. Then I took it out, and placed it on a metal platform and start hitting it with a hammer… tak, tak, tak, tak, two three times and later when it cooled down I would find that there is no more rust. It cleaned the rust right away. If you want to clean that rust by hand it would be impossible. But putting it in the fire, taking it out, putting it on earth, tak, tak, tak three times and it is shiny (Sheykh smiles).

So Allah swt is saying to us that if you come out dirty from this life then the fire is going to clean you. Bodily dirtiness is not like that rust. The body may be dirty on the outside. Maybe you worked too much and you didn’t get the chance to clean yourself up and the Angel of Death came to you. That is okay. Dirtiness is here (Sheykh pointing at the heart).

Pride is the biggest dirtiness that man can have. And praising his own ego, ooh… Then you do need to stay some time in the fire because that is a big dirtiness that you have inside and it needs to be cleaned.
If you think of life like this and if you think like this every day, when Maghrib time approaches we start judging our own selves making our own accounting. Then slowly we will reach somewhere. Daily we will put our lives in front of us saying, ‘I did this, this, this and this today. I got up in the morning I went to this way I came across this person and the person looked very ugly to me but I still did not think bad about this person and I prayed for that one. This happened that happened…’ and you calculate your own self and you can find for yourself what kind of life you have lived today.

So that is important. You must get rid of that smell. You must get rid of the inside dirtiness. That’s why Islam came, to get rid of the characteristics of the ego.

Waliyullahi Sahibu Saif Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S)
Waliyullahi Sahibu Saif Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S)

Man is not watching to see and to realizing, to understand through the history that Allah SWT is giving to us through all holy books. Some may not like what the Qu’ran is saying. It’s okay. Take what the Taurat (Torah) is saying. Look what’s being mentioned in Taurat, in the story of Namrud (Nimrod) and Ibrahim(Abraham) (A.s.). What Namrud declared?

He said ” I am the lord of the earth. Everywhere belongs to me. ” And Allah put 1 servant in front of him saying to him, “Leave that arrogance. Make prostration to your Lord who has given you all this power.” Saying to him, “Lord? I am the lord. I am the creator. What your lord does?”

“He gives life and takes life.”

That one was saying, “It’s easy. I do the same.” He put 2 prisoners in front of him saying , ” One I am setting free. I am giving life to him. The other one , take his life. Kill him.” Hmm. Then Ibrahim (As) was saying to him, “In that case….”, Prophets don’t argue. He said, “In that case, my lord is raising the sun from the East. You stop it. You raise it from the west.”

Namrud started shaking. And knowing that he cannot do that he said to him, “Not even the one you are claiming to be your Lord can do that.” He said , ” He can.” For that is Allah promising from that day, “Before Judgement Day, We are going to raise the sun from the west one time. Make sure that you are asking forgiveness up till that day. When the sun is rising from the west again, the door of forgiveness is closed. no one’s asking for forgiveness after that is going to be accepted.

Stand for Truth even if you are alone-Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S)

Now, I’m going to give you one more example and then we will have our dinner inshaAllah. This situation is just bringing you back to the Prophet’s (sws) time. They did all kinds of cruelties to the Prophet (sws). He didn’t say any word against them. Then finally he left Mecca and he came to Medina. And the people of Medina accepted him, supported him. So the people of Mecca decided to say, ‘If we leave them to stay, they are going to become stronger. So it’s better to go now to destroy them’. It’s just like what they’re trying to do to me here.

When the Holy Prophet (sws) is given order by Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) saying, ‘Start defending yourselves now’, only 300 Sahaba went out there to defend themselves against 4,000 people coming with the best weapons in their hands. And they didn’t have weapons. They had only sticks and things in their hands. They went out there to defend their rights.

Before the war began another stranger was coming there and saying, ‘What’s happening here?’ And they said to him, ‘This is what’s happening’. He said, ‘You mean this group of people prepared and came to destroy you because you believe in Allah and His Prophet (sws)?’ They said, ‘Yes’. And he said, ‘Can I join in? Because it seems like they are taking your rights away and I should be on your side’. Looking at the 300 people and looking at the 4,000, he knew that there’s a big possibility that they are going to lose. He said, ‘I am standing and defending the truth. This is wrong’. They brought him to the Prophet (sws) and the Prophet (sws) said to him, ‘Then why don’t you believe what I am just saying to you? Do you have any better evidence than this? Just say ‘La ilaha illallah Muhammadur Rasulullah’ and after you go into that war, either you will become a martyr or you will become a veteran’. And he said, ‘What do I have to do?’ The Prophet (sws) said, ‘This is what it is’. He said, ‘This is true. I accept it.’

And the war began. The person just had a spear in his hand. He tried to throw it but before he could throw it, one arrow came to him and he died. He didn’t do any single thing. And he was kind of a rebel. He didn’t do a single thing. After the war the Holy Prophet (sws) looked at that one and said, ‘This one just entered to the best place of Paradise’. They said, ‘He didn’t do anything’. He said, ‘He defended the truth. He stood on the side of the truth’.

If you are not doing anything then at least stand on the side of the truth just like all these people who are doing now.

Cross dressing-Sign of Doomsday,Discourse of Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S)

Holy Prophet (asws) is saying, ‘Open signs of the Qiyamat is when you walk in the streets, you are not going to recognize which one is male, which one is female.’

Isn’t that what’s happening now? Say to me that this is not happening to you? Go walk in the street and you’ll see.

Signs of the last days, Judgement Day is when the males, they are going to be satisfied with each other. Females they are going to be satisfied with each other. Isn’t that what’s happening now?

Don’t be fooled by sheytan. Yes. Save yourselves from that sickness. Pull yourself away. Even if you see, don’t turn your head to look at it. They are committing the biggest sin and you are being partner of it. At least one arrow from sheytan is coming out to your heart that time.

Any time when somebody is committing a sin, and you are turning to look at it, sheytan is aiming to your heart hitting to your heart. Slowly, that’s why slowly, people they are finding familiarity with that. That means you are getting fooled. Be careful, Sheytan is very clever on that way.

Don’t let sheytan to fool you. If you get hooked by sheytan, ahaa, you’ll be in big trouble later. You need to have somebody very strong to cut that rope away. And that time, you‘re going to scream. You’re going to cry. That is what’s happening to people.

Pull yourself away from that. If you save yourself, help will reach to you. If the whole world becomes disobedient, if you are obedient one, a special rahmat is going to come to you.

Allah doesn’t forget you. Allah doesn’t forget any creature that He has created. He’s not forgetting the ants that He has created. He’s not forgetting all the animals that He has created. There’s uncountless kind of creatures living in the oceans, in the sea, He’s not forgetting them. Uncountless creatures they are living in the mountains, He’s not forgetting them. Uncountless creatures living under the earth, He’s not forgetting them. The man that He has created in Ahsani-Taqweem, the most perfect, you think He’s going to forget you?

He didn’t. But you forget Allah. You are not remembering Him. You are not remembering Him. You disconnect yourself from that One. If you cut the wiring coming to that light, no light is going to be here. That’s what man did. They cut that wire that is coming from his Lord to him. And he’s in darkness now. He’s not seeing light. Because he’s in darkness, he’s looking everywhere, it is in darkness. Everywhere is complete darkness.
