It is the last day of Ramaḍān and everyone will leave their fasting and praying to run after dunyā. "Keep to the clean path," says Mawlānā, “Dont run with the sewer rats.” If you invite the Sulṭān ﷻ then you will eat from His ﷻ heavenly table.
Man, The Glorious

Iqraa Bismi Rabbika
Aug12 2012 Turkish 25min
In a beautiful sohbat from the treasures of the Ramadaniyat, Mawlana questions himself about the meaning of life. He answers with the first word that the Angel Jibrail (as) spoke to the Prophet Muhammad: Read, Learn!
Laziness of the Modern World
Aug11 2012 Turkish 29min
When you leave people idle they run after evil. Being lazy and idle makes the world spin out of control. People don’t know the value of work or the value of others. They don’t know their Creator and they become like Nimrod.
The Biggest of Fitnas
Aug10 2012 Arabic 14min
Mawlana as a gift for Ramadan makes some sense out of the horrible things that are happening in the world at the present time. What happened in the past explains what is happening in the present.
The Honour of Ramaḍān
Aug10 2012 Turkish 18min
In yet another jewel from the Ramaḍāniyāt, Mawlānā speaks about the Ottomans who, with all their power, kept the honour of Ramaḍān. They kept within the limits set by Allāh ﷻ and so He ﷻ kept their honour also. And what are we doing today?
Everything Has Its Place
Aug09 2012 Turkish 18min
Mawlana presents us with another jewel in the strand of Ramadaniyat. Again addressing the Turkish speakers in particular, he tells the young men that they were created for more than hanging out in coffee shops and the young women that they were created for more than showing off their nakedness. He pleads with them to come to their senses and remember their Creator and the purpose of their creation.
The Signs of Divine Anger
Aug08 2012 Turkish 29min
The Signs of Allah’s Anger are all around us. Mawlana forcefully warns the Turkish people, and all Muslims, to wake up and correct their steps before it is too late.
Self-Display in Jahiliya al-Akhira
Aug06 2012 Arabic 38min
In this jewel of Ramadhaniyat, Mawlana shows the many meanings of "Tabarruj" (self-display), which is a symptom of "Jahiliyat" (ignorance). Mawlana warns all Muslims, both individuals and governments, not to be deluded by Shaytan and urges them to carry their Islamic duties and know their priorities. A strong warning was also given to all those eager to enjoy Umra (visit Mecca and Medina) in our difficult days and to the governments that encourage them.
Aug02 2012 Arabic 19min
In another "Ramadhaniyat" gift, Mawlana speaks about the benefits of fasting for training the nafs of the individual to carry him to the level of "Al-Ihsan" ( Perfect Goodness). Allah loves those who do good and are good 3:134 "والله يحب المحسنين". Goodness brings goodness. It is the salvation for the individual and the answer to his socio-political problem. So again the key to solving the political lies with the person, the Individual.
The Renaissance of the Devil
Jul29 2012 Arabic 38min
Mawlānā addresses his royal guest with a short history lesson in which he explains that the actual purpose of the Renaissance was to destroy all religion. Shayṭān, using this shiny word, led man into betraying himself and his Lord. The fruit of this in the Muslim world was the Young Turks and the Ikhwān. When he was asked why he recommended that the Muslims of Syria put down their weapons and retire to their houses, he replied that their efforts now will bring about more harm than benefit.
The World is a Carcass
Jul24 2012 Arabic 17min
Mawlana quotes the Hadith that "The World is a Carcass". Those who search for satisfaction in the world will never be successful. Only if they find their pleasure and contentment with whatever they are given will they be truly happy. Muslims wake up!
The House of the Lord
Jul23 2012 Arabic 37min
Mawlana speaks about the great honor Allah gave the Arabs, the Muslims. He established His House in the forgotten deserts of Arabia and made the Arabs who they are today. They have forgotten the True way, yet they are proud of their knowledge. Allah honored all the People of the Book with Prophets, with Books and "The House of The Lord". They have all forgotten. The only way for them is to remember and return to Allah.
Aug29 2011 Turkish 48min
Mawlana carries on with the theme he started in the Ramazan Sohbetleri. Mawlana warns the people against the bad actions, attitudes, beliefs or habits, which they are so used to that they no longer are able to see the evil in them. But in this last one of the Ramazan Sohbetleri, Mawlana says that this sohbat is also a "Bayramlık - Eid Present".
Aug27 2011 Turkish 48min
Ramazan Sohbetleri: People give unlimited freedom to their egos thinking that if they can do everything they long for or they egos ask, they will reach "Güzel Hayat - Good Life - حياة طيبة"; until they discover that it is all an illusion. But then it is too late!

Do Not Be Deceived by Dunya
Aug20 2011 Turkish
Everything in this world is passing. Everything is between two points; and whatever has a beginning has an end. So "Dünyaya Aldanma! - Do Not Be Deceived by Dunya! - و لا تغررنك الدنيا"
The King of Darknesses and His Realms
Aug17 2011 Turkish 37min
How is it possible that a man can choose Darkness over Light? But this is the predominate choice of the men of the 20th and 21st centuries. The Muslims obey the non-Muslims and follow "The King of Darknesses & His Realms - Karanlıklar Kralı ve Diyarı - ظلمات الطاغوت".
