Peter The 'Mad',
Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi,
Sohbat of the 7th of September, 2013.
Lefke - Cyprus
Asbahna wa asbaha l-mulku Lillah. Shukr (thanks) to Allah who let us meet the morning safely,
praise and glory to our Rabb. Countless salatu salam to RasulAllah. Marhaba O Shah Mardan.
Marhaba O lovers of Shah Mardan, marhaba. Ya Rabbi, You are Subhan, You are Sultan. If
You wish, You can relieve us with an ant. If He wishes.
Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Your words are the source of wisdom. If He wishes, an ant can bring
relief. If He wishes, a king can be imprisoned in his palace. He will think and think. "A huge
palace - "Who am I here? I'm a prisoner. This palace is a prison to me. I can't walk around like
other servants of Allah. I can't walk around." You have to sit in this palace. This is the sultanate.
You must wear the sultanate crown and have the appearance of a king. You have to sit on this
throne. You can't make other movements. They will just call you Sultan. What you'll hear from
people is: "O our mighty Sultan!" "Our great Padishah!" "O our Majesty!" You won't hear
anything else from people.
Marhaba O lovers of Shah Mardan. Welcome. As-salamu Alaikum. See, how nice! How nice!
May you have peace. Let me give you the world, if you want it. No? My heavens then. If you
want my serenity, let Me give it to you. If you want dunya, I will give you dunya. There is no one
who finds pleasure in dunya. Dunya hasn't made anyone happy. There is no one who says "I am
happy". The one longing for Mawla is always happy. He's joyful, relieved, festive. Yes. Welcome
O lovers of Shah Mardan. Dastur O Shah Mardan. How nice to be your lover, to be your friend.
Allah Allah. Welcome, O friends, the biggest honor is granted to you. What is the biggest honor?
Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. This honor is given to us. There is no honor above it. Bismillahi
r-Rahmani r-Rahim. The mighty Names of Janab-ul Haqq, Rabb-ul Izzet, Bismillahi r-Rahmani
r-Rahim bring honor to you. They give you strength. They give you happiness. They dress you
in the manifestation of His beauty.
Say Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim. Say it. Say it one time. Say it a thousand times. Say it a
hundred thousand times. Say it hundreds of thousands of times. Bismillahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim.
Allah... Shah Mardan will show you the universes. Shah Mardan will take us into space so that
we find relief and joy. Yes. What news, if you lived in the woods! We're living in this world. If we
have lived for this world, what news! Go ahead O Shah Mardan. May our faces become bright.
May our hearts become joyful. May we be relieved. Janab-ul Haqq didn't send us to be sad. He
sent us to know ourselves. Here it is, dunya, a tiny man, mountains, rocks, continents, oceans.
They're fighting claiming, "This ocean is mine." "These mountains are mine." "These continents
are mine." "These woods are mine." "These donkeys are also mine!" The one with many
donkeys, go to Karpaz! Spread them there. Where is the sultanate of donkeys? It's in the Karpaz
A man couldn't look after one donkey and now they have multiplied. What shall we do with
them? Let us let them free. Let them yell and bray in the woods. Let them do whatever they
want. Is your honor like the sultanate of donkeys? No! There are too many donkeys braying,
yelling, stamping. Do they have an honor? No, they don't. If you see yourselves equal to donkeys,
what will your value be? Nothing. Welcome O lovers of Shah Mardan. Beauty, the peace of
having faith, the honor of belief, the honor of faith is dressed on the believers. Look for these,
dress in these. They put a bridle on donkeys. Sultans wear crowns. And the donkey says: "I don't
care about bridles. Set me free. Let me walk around the mountains and rocks and bray whenever
I want." Yes. Don't be a donkey. Be a lion! Say Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!
Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Our assembly, it's a new day today. Today is the end of Shawwal. It
is known for its name. Days are the same. However, there is a a spiritual treasure that each
month carries, a different honor that it brings, a different crown that it puts on. Where from?
From Rabb-ul Izzet, the complete Owner of earth and heavens. It comes from Rabb-ul Izzet
every day. Run after Him to dress in it. Allahu Allah Allahu Rabbi Allahu Hasbi Allahu Allah.
Allahu Rabbi. O friends! May hardship not touch you. Marhaba. What is the meaning of it?
Marhaba: May no hardship, no suffering come to you.
Janab-ul Rabb-ul Izzet, your Creator, Allah, who said "My khalifa on earth." He didn't appoint
you to be a porter of this world. Rabb-ul Izzet created us as men, calling us His khalifa. He
pronounced the highest rank of honor - meaning He didn't send us to this world to be the porters
of this world. What a nice saying: "I (jj) didn't send My khalifa for bad dunya; to be porters of this
world. My khalifa has glory and honor. I created Man with such glory and honor; I didn't make
him a servant to this world." Nevertheless, people consider servanthood to dunya to be an honor.
But the real honor is dressed by Janab Allah. They don't respect Him. Astaghfirullah.
Astaghfirullah. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Let us open. Let us say Allah. Allah Allah. Ya
O our Creator. We are Your servants. May we understand this. May we know ourselves. Who
are we? They don't know. They can't understand who we are. Shaitan is making us animals to
this world completely, putting dunya's burden on our shoulders. Whereas, Janab-i Rabb-ul Izzet
did not send us to be porters of this world. We are not porters. But shaitan is saying: "No! Let me
load dunya on you. It has gold and silver. It has kerosene. You know? Kerosene, petrol. I will
make you rich with these so you become famous." "They all have petrol." It's such a stinking
liquid. Stinking from underground as if it comes from hell. It's a match for disaster, bad smelling
petrol, which is turning all the world upside down. They are running after it. What a shame! So
Shah Mardan is saying: Their aims and efforts are to run after the ones who have the most
petrol. Do they call him the king of petrol? When they die, their graves will be filled with petrol.
They'll be put in it, drowning and coming back to life, drowning and reviving.
Don't be the kings of petrol. Don't be. Don't look for petrol. They are looking for petrol in the
sea. As if it has finished on the earth, people are looking for petrol in the sea. They'll be put inside
that petrol they're looking for, stinking naphtha. Their graves will be small pools with stinking
naphtha inside, full of petrol. They will drink and drown, sober up and drown again inside the
stinking petrol. What people look for today is petrol, to be rich with petrol. Take the richness...
stinking one! And don't sleep in this world. Don't sleep O rich men of petrol. Don't be proud of
finding that stinking liquid. If only you had found water instead. If only you had looked for water
and channeled it. If only you had turned the dry deserts into oases. Haven't you seen an oasis?
Within the deserts, there is green all of a sudden, there are trees. Inside the deserts, travelers,
people on their way, run towards it when they find it. They look and see springs, beautiful trees,
coolness. Poor ones, they say we found paradise, we found life.
Somewhere else, they see a stinking pool. It doesn't flow - a pond with a bad smell. Who drinks,
dies. What is this? It's an oasis of petrol. Petrol. Don't stand on petrol, it will destroy you. Water.
"Wa ja'alna min al ma'i kulla shay'in hayy." (21:30) (We made all living things from water) What
gives life is water. H2O. H, two, O, one. I know, I know this too. This is big knowledge. Two
hydrogens, one oxygen. Look at Allah who turned two gases into water. Don't be a dog of dunya!
Don't run after stinking naphtha. Look at the dress of majesty, the dress of honor you were
dressed in. Who dressed you? Allahu Allah Allahu Rabbi, Allahu Allah Allahu Hasbi. People
evaluate their honor by looking at petrol wealth. This much stinking petrol found a year gives
them honor. Leave the stinking petrol. Run towards the rivers of light sent from heavens. Allahu
A huge world cannot fit these ignorant people. Don't be rich with petrol, be rich with faith. The
one rich with petrol flies on planes. The one rich with faith says "Ya Bismillah" and reaches east
from west instantly. They're not looking for this. They're running after stinking petrol. And now
they're fighting. "This continent is yours." "This continent is mine." The Russian boasts. What is
this you're wearing? A suit and pants. Didn't you read about history, Putin? About Peter the
Great? Peter the Great. Have you heard about him? A famous emperor, Peter the Great. They
call him crazy. Why? He did a wise thing. He showed and guarded his sultanate. He said "My
Creator created like this" and he built churches of his religion. He built churches for Allah who
rewarded him with tsardom. What do they call him now? Crazy Peter.
O you, Putin, and others like you, who will call you wise? Peter, whom they call crazy, built
churches for worshipping. How many churches and cathedrals there were in Moscow? O Putin,
do you go there every day? Do you think of going to the Creator who created you, to bow down,
to be His servant? What you think about is "What will Obama do to me?" He'll tie you in a rope
to hang. Obama thinks: "What will Putin do to me?" He'll make you an idol for worshipping.
You're a man, a man. Know your Creator. Your Creator didn't make you to run after stinking
petrol. Shaitan made you. All of you will fall into the oil wells and die. And you'll find your graves
in pools full of naphtha. Tell me what do they say, the leaders of the Russians? The priests. Let
them tell. When you die, they'll bury you in pools full of naphtha. You'll drown and sober up,
drown and sober up. It will be said that this was what you looked for in dunya. Take it, drink and
O short-lived silly people opposing their Creator! What do they say for Peter? Crazy Russian
Peter? Why? He said a wise thing: "Let me prostrate to Allah who made me a tsar." Kremlin
Palace, isn't it? He said: "I want to build a majestic building that shows that I believe." O Putin,
did you place a stone for the honor of your Creator? You didn't. You built another shrine, put his
grave in front of the Kremlin Palace, and put him inside it.
Leave childhood, O people. Leave brutishness as well. Allah did not create you and send you for
brutishness to this world. He sent you to know your honor and to say that you are His khalifa. He
sent shaitan, alayhima yastahiqq, so that he's punished every day for what he deserves. Leave
these battles! Allah didn't order you to fight for shaitan and shaitan's friends. All these many
prophets said this. Fight shaitan, the enemy of mankind. Be servants of your Creator. Do you go,
O Putin, to the church in the Kremlin Palace? Do you go to see what your grandfather did?
What did you do? You say crazy Peter. Crazy Peter equipped his country with churches and
cathedrals. He said: "I will prostrate to my Creator." Do you prostrate? All he thinks is how to
destroy the American. The American thinks how to destroy the Russian. Leave it. The world is
for all mankind. Not for particular people. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Your words are the
source of wisdom. Go ahead O Shah Mardan. Your lovers adore you.
Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar wa Lillahi l-hamd The one who says it, wins. Neither
Persians, nor Arabs; neither Russians, nor Americans. The one who says Allah, wins. And those
who don't say will be destroyed so that they know the power of saying Allah. O Rabbi, grant us
the courage of faith and strength. May one of us destroy them. Let us see what's the use of their
bombs and guns? They will be crushed like tomatoes. Like tomatoes? What will they be? They'll
become like snails. Snails meaning like slime. Allah Allah Allah.
Look, there is the sun regulated every morning above you. It doesn't get out of order. It rises by
the order, rises by the Divine order. It finishes its mission, finishes a day. It sets. It prostrates to its
Creator, Allah. O people, let us come back to our senses. Let us return to ourselves. Let us get rid
of oppression, which is forbidden by Allah. "I (jj) don't oppress, nor am I pleased with someone's
oppression. I will take the rights of the oppressors." - He says. "I won't leave them, I'll take them."
Tawba ya Rabbi, tawba astaghfirullah.
Go ahead O Shah Mardan. The field is yours, may people and jinn listen. May they listen to the
Divine orders. May they listen to Divine words. May they open. May they be relieved. May they
love each other. Allah Dhul Jalal doesn't order us to kill. O Pope, say that killing is forbidden.
What do you make guns for? For killing. To kill people. What have you become? They've
become shaitan. May Allah not put us with shaitan. O Rabbi, send us a Sultan like Shah
Mardan. Send us Shah Mardan who can reach from west to east in a moment when he
spurs his horse. May his banner rise. May the world not be the center of oppression of
people. May they prostrate to their Creator. May we prostrate. SubhanAllah.
