The Divine Seal

Shaykh Muhammad Effendi, our son. He is our pride and joy, one of the pillars of Sh?m shar?f,
servant of the Nation of Muhammad. He will overcome the tyrants, be one of the leaders, our
Welcome to our assembly. Let us say, "Hu", "He, our Benevolent Protector." As-sal?mu
‘alaykum, O attendees, O beloved brethren of Shah Mardan. May our assembly be an assembly
of true faith and Islam, of enlightened wisdom and adab. Let's not be like firewood. Firewood is
suitable for the fire; it's good for nothing else.
All?hu akbar All?hu akbar All?hu akbar wa li-Ll?hi l-hamd. Thanks be to our Benevolent
Protector who has prepared this day for us! May it be full of blessings, our son, Shaykh Mehmet
Effendi, Bahauddin Effendi our son and children, too. Welcome, O beloved brethren of Shah
Mardan. Be proud that Allah did not make you from those animals roaming the earth. He gave
you honor. He did not make this world a burden on you. Thanks be to Allah Most High, my son,
my khal?fa. Who are we? Who is our khal?fa? But they belong to the pillars of Sh?m, Shaykh
Mehmet Effendi, Shaykh Bahauddin Effendi. May your lives be blessed, may your wisdom
increase, may you be granted a still higher degree of honor.
Welcome, O beloved brethren of Shah Mardan, in his suhba. Let's open up, let's not exist for this
world. Who exists only for this world, he has no value. How great is the worth of someone who
lives for this world? The one who lives for this world is like the garbage of this world. Don't be
garbage! Here you go, O Shah Mardan, may our strength and power increase! Let' say, "Bismi-
Ll?hi r-Rahm?ni r-Rah?m." Bismi-Ll?hi-ladh? l? yadurru ma‘ ismihi shay’un fi l-ardi wa l? fi ssam?’i
wa Huwa s-Sami‘u l-‘Al?m. Let's not be garbage. This is Shah Mardan's lesson in adab for
us. The first lesson in adab for man. O man, you are a sacred human being! You are a sacred
human being, you are not garbage. Those living only for this world, they are garbage, they are
manure. They have no value whatsoever. Here you go, O Shah Mardan. May we be given
power, may the power of the blessed Shah Mardan reach us. and may our distinguished great
grandmother Hala Sultan grant us her support as well. All?hu akbar All?hu akbar All?hu akbar
wa li-Ll?hi l-hamd.
O human, who was called in heavens, "Hazreti ?dam", He was called "Hazreti ?dam", that is
such a great rank that you can't find a rank higher than this one. "Y? ?dam, O ?dam", was the
divine address, "uskun anta wa zawjuka l-jannata fa-kul? min haythu shi'tum? wa l? taqraba
h?dhihi sh-shajarata fa-tak?n? mina az-zalim?n." (7:19) O human beings, who you were clad in
paradise in the dresses of paradise, humans, dressed with the ranks of paradise "uskun anta wa
zawjuka l-janna" "Reside, you and your wife, in paradise!" O our Lord, let us, too, be among
your accepted servants, our children and our brethren! O Shah Mardan, your brethren adore
you lovingly. This world is a prison. Do you understand? This world is a prison. After we were
brought into paradise we committed an act of disobedience, so we were told, "You're not suitable
to stay here any longer, get out of paradise! I will imprison you on earth. Go down into that
prison, that penitentiary.
"fa-kul? min haythu shi'tum?" - "eat from whatever you wish inside My paradise", they had been
told, "except from this (tree), don't follow the way of shayt?n!" This address came. But because
shayt?n out of his anger and envy wanted to have man expelled from paradise, he taught him his
first act of disobedience. The seas and oceans of this world, they are worth nothing. We are in
this world and all directions are wide open, but the son of man is not content. How could he be
content? He's imprisoned. Being locked up in a prison how could he enjoy himself? How could
he be content? He can't. After having been kicked out of the palace could anyone find
enjoyment? His honor is lost and all joy is lost, too.
The Lord of Might and Glory had declared, "This one, this is the forbidden tree, its fruit, that's
shayt?n", He said. "shayt?n is working hard to bring you out of paradise, don't follow him!" "Wa
l? tattabi‘? khutuw?ti sh-shayt?n" (2:168) Isn't that the noble verse? "Wa t-tabi‘ sab?la man an?ba
ilayy"(31:15) That's His address: "Wa t-tabi‘ sab?la man an?ba ilayy!" "An?ba", what does the
word "an?ba" mean? "The one who is following My orders, the one who has turned to Me", He
says. "He has left his wicked ego, he is holding fast to My orders", "Wa t-tabi‘ sab?la man an?ba
ilayy" - the one who has turned to Me, someone, who has left what I disapprove of, his way is the
way you should follow!" But shayt?n persistently tries to throw us off this way of turning to Allah,
using this world, this world, which is a trap set to bring humans out of their state of humanness.
To take a human's honor from him, shayt?n uses this world as a trap. So what happens?
Here you go, O Shah Mardan, your brethren adore you lovingly. "Adab y? Hu!", he proclaims,
"Adab y? Hu!" Who does not know what adab is, who has no adab, has no value. The place of
the one who has no adab is – excuse the expression – the latrine. The place of the one possessing
adab is in accordance with Allah's word - "Wa t-tabi‘ sab?la man an?ba ilayy!" "the one looking
for Me, those who hold fast to My way." Two people came down into this world, into this huge
world, two people: ?dam – ‘alayhi sal?m – and our mother Haw?’. All the trouble of this world
came down on Hazreti ?dam and our mother Haw?’. But it was not at all the divine intent of
Allah Most High to disgrace man, whom He had created to be His representative. Far from it!
Man was not sent down to earth in order to disgrace him. But shayt?n pursued man to make him
disgraced. Yes.
So many prophets came, to inform mankind. O Shah Mardan, here you go, he's saying it. So
many prophets came. For what did they come? To inform. But we forgot the message. We
became forgetful and turned into wild hordes, spreading corruption on earth. That's the fitting
description of mankind in our time: They've turned into hordes corrupting this world, working to
set it on fire; in a state far from their inherent morality. "Wa t-tabi‘ sab?la man an?ba ilayy!"
What does He say? You should follow, follow the way of those who are searching for My way!
Safety (selamet) is there. Allah the Exalted – Subh?naHu wa Ta‘?la – amruHu bayn al-k?fi wa nn?n!
Here you go, O Shah Mardan! Our Lord's command lies between (the letters) "k?f" and
"n?n". Saying "Kun!" (Be!) it comes into existence after the first letter "k?f" but before the letter
"n?n" is pronounced.
Subh?naHu wa Ta‘?la! How ignorant man is, how ignorant! But it doesn't befit him to be
ignorant. Ignorance doesn't befit man. Animals may be ignorant, but for a human being, to be
ignorant does not befit him. Allah! The majestic Qur’?n teaches, Shah Mardan teaches, how to
take steps, how to set your feet, when you want to step ahead. You will find out! "It-tabi‘ sab?la
man an?ba ilayy!" "You must move along the way which I have shown you!" This is the first
adab you must learn! They don't teach this nowadays. Shayt?n makes them not teach it. Well,
shayt?n has spoiled everything. Is there anything in today's world, Shaykh Mehmet Effendi,
which is in order? Is there anything? There is nothing. In the end, where did it lead to? Well,
humans are descendents of apes. Finally he turned us into monkeys. No way! But that's what they
write in the books, that's what they teach. Where did humans come from? Humans are
descendants of monkeys. No way, never! Well, and where did the monkeys come from? It doesn't
say, that this universe has a Sultan and that everything is under His order, following His order.
"It-tabi‘ sab?la man an?ba ilayy!"
Here you go, O Shah Mardan. Be beautiful, Don't be ugly! Does Allah want anyone to become
ugly? Not at all! That goes for everyone. But especially women keep pulling out their mirrors,
looking: "Am I beautiful or am I ugly?" Their minds are busy with how to appear beautiful. But
appearing beautiful in front of people is of no use at all. Why don't you strive to appear beautiful
in the realm of the divine? What is this? How am I seen in the divine mirror? Is there a divine
mirror? There is, for sure! How could there be none? Since you exist, there must also be a
mirror. You appear in a mirror. Even if you're not seen in this world they still see you from
above. Above you're seen. Well, if you want to dress up here on earth, how come you don't want
to be seen as beautiful heaven?
Here you go, O Shah Mardan, our good fortune is beyond description. O Shah Mardan. Get
used to it! But they are not getting used. "Hal min muddakir?"(54:15) (Is there anyone to
remember?) Isn't it? "Isn't there anyone who ponders deeply?", He asks. Is there no one thinking
about something better than the affairs of this world? (Is there no one) thinking deeply? Now
there is this device which shows the world from far. This world is a globe. The most beautiful of
all shapes is the globe. A line is the first kind of shape. A plane is the second, volume is the third
kind of shape, the fourth … What is the most beautiful shape in this world? It's the globe. Is there
anyone nowadays who can think about this? He sees it, it's shown in this device, that the world is
a globe. Inside of what? Inside darkness. It is turning. Who is turning it? Apart from its turning it
moves. Who moves it? Who makes it move in that darkness in the sky? In all that darkness, who
is giving it light?
Teach them that because we don't think about these things, we remain in darkness We're busy
with our descent from apes. Apes are better apes than these who claim to be, they are better.
Apes are better than those who say that men are apes. The human being is not a monkey! The
human being has been honored with the honor of Islam; he has been given honor. The human
being is not an animal. The human being is not, as they say, "a speaking animal". All?h All?h
Subh?n All?h Sult?n All?h. Yes. A train moves, a car moves, a plane moves. If any of the parts
making these objects move is deficient, there will be chaos. In a plane the smallest defect will
result in the plane crashing. It cannot fly and it will kill its passengers. Man is a sacred human
being, you must know the greatness of his worth and move accordingly.
O you gullible people, by saying "I am Turk, Kurd, Russian, American", you have they put a
seal on your destiny? What's this? What's the difference between us? We're all caught in the same
desire; we're all inside the same dirt, no matter if we're Rusian, Kurd, Turk or whatever. What is
the (divine) order? "Tahhir baytiyya li t-t?'if?na wa l-‘akif?n"(2:125) (Purify My house for those
circumambulating and cleaving to it!) Hj Mehmet Effendi, look at the magnificence of this divine
address to prophet Ibr?h?m regarding the four-walled building prophet Ibr?h?m had erected. It is
an order. Watch out! Our exalted Protector orders: "Tahhir baytiyya!" "Keep My house clean
for those circumambulating it and visiting it! Keep it clean!", He says regarding the building
prophet Ibr?h?m had erected. Nowadays, out of high respect, they don't even let you rub your
hand over the magnificent Ka‘ba. They rush to make everyone follow this kind of adab.
"Beware, let's not do anything to defy adab towards that great Ka‘ba!" Who built that
magnificent Ka‘ba?
"Wa idh yarfa‘u Ibr?h?mu l-qaw?’ida mina l-bayti wa Ism?‘?l"(2:127) By the order of Allah, Who
said, "Build it!", they built it. Then Allah Most High made them venerate it, prophet Ibr?h?m
together with his son. "Wa idh yarfa‘u Ibr?h?mu l-qaw?’ida mina l-bayti wa Ism?‘?l Tahhir
baytiyya li t-t?'if?na wa l-‘akif?n wa s-s?jid?n." This is "My house", He says. The one who built it,
after being ordered to, was prophet Ibr?h?m, who was then ordered to venerate it. But much
more magnificent than the Ka‘ba is the human being! Here you go, O Shah Mardan, come on,
don't be shy to say it! The Ka‘ba is magnificent. It is made by man & you show respect towards
it. Well, who made that human being circumambulating it? Where is your respect? Don't say,
"Get out of there!" He (Man) is inviolable, while you (the Ka‘ba) is made by man. All?hu akbaru
l-akbar, All?hu akbaru l-akbar All?hu akbaru l-akbar.
Man has been stamped with a seal. The magnificent Ka‘ba has been stamped with prophet
Ibr?h?m's seal, but you, O human being – here you go, Shah Mardan – you've been stamped
with a Divine Seal. "You are honored". No creature was created with an honor greater than
yours. The angels asked for this honor, but He didn't give it to them. All?hu akbar. These things
were made known to prophet ?dam. They were made known to N?h – ‘alayhi sal?m. They were
made known to the nation of ‘?d and to the nations of every prophet. They were informed about
the honor of man. The prophets were not sent to cover the earth with buildings. They were sent
to teach the honor of man, his magnificence and his greatness. Salla-Ll?hu ‘alayhi wa sallam.
Here you go, O Shah Mardan. This sublime seal with which he has been stamped has worn old
in this world and they are desecrating the human being. Every human being carries a sublime
seal by the Lord of Might and Glory. All?hu akbar. He doesn't see this seal. He doesn't respect
this seal. He burns and he destroys. This is not a human being. To teach this the prophets used
all their power to urge - "Be careful, the human being is stamped with a divine seal!" All?hu
akbar. All?hu akbar. "Innahu min Sulaym?n wa innahu Bismi-Ll?hi r-Rahm?ni r-
Rah?m."(27:30) There is not a single human who does not carry the seal of the noble Basmalah.
You must respect the human being and, in this way, show respect to man's Creator. Your level
and your rank will increase; your honor in the presence of the Exalted Lord of Might and Glory
will increase.
Teach these things! Don't quarrel, don't fight each other, don't spread corruption on earth! "Wa
l? tufsid? f? l-ard"(7:56), He says, "Don't spread corruption on earth!" Whose address is this?
"Innahu min Sulaym?n wa innahu Bismi-Ll?hi r-Rahm?ni r-Rah?m." (27:30) Disposal of
affairs(tasarruf) is in the hand of the Prophet of the End Times. He brought the message. Learn!
Don't be ignorant! "Wa l? tak?nanna min al-k?fir?n!" "Don't be among the unbelievers!", He
says. Madad, O Shah Mardan! How beautifully you're saying it, how many aspects there are! No
other creature possesses the magnificence and honor of man. "Let's respect each other", he says.
"Let us love one another! Let us serve one another!" This pleases the Lord of Might and Glory.
Showing respect to whom Allah made respected is belief (?m?n). Not doing so is unbelief (kufr)
Don't sleep! Open your eyes! Allah Most High gave you two eyes. They show you the universe.
O our Lord, You are al-Qad?r and al-Muqtadir. The Sultan of Prophets has sent Shah Mardan
to us to, "Teach them!". So let us learn. Teach! Learn and teach! On TV they are always saying
how good eggplants are, that okras have become cheaper or meat will be better this way or that.
Leave all that! How stupid people are, how ignorant people are! Don't show us these things!
These are things everyone has seen, everybody knows it. Why occupy yourself with them? Teach
something about the reality of man, about his worth and value and his magnificence! See that
seal he carries! The one who doesn't see that divine seal, he is blind. "Wa man k?na f? hadhihi
a‘m? fa-huwa f? l-?khirati a‘m?"(17:72) Who was blind here will be blind hereafter. See how the
divine Magnificence makes even an ant appear magnificent, so Allah's Magnificence can be seen
by means of it. Through this it was that an ant was calling. "Q?lat namlatun". "An ant spoke…"
With what did it speak, Shaykh Mehmet Effendi? "An ant spoke…" From where did it learn
that? An ant spoke: "Y? ayyuha n-namlu dkhul? mas?kinakum!." (27:18)
How many lessons are contained in these words! One ant, who was their leader, that means their
sultan, spoke - (O ants enter your dwellings) "Y? ayyuha n-namlu dkhul? mas?kinakum!" (27:18)
Take care of your limits, don't go beyond your limits! "L? yahtimannakum Sulaymanu wa
jun?duhu" (27:18) Prophet Sulaym?n is coming with his army, they might walk on you and crush
you. But humans, they are readying armies to leave all people crushed. Shame upon them! Man
is a grand, splendid being, not something low and disgraced. Man is a grand, splendid being, you
must respect him! This is an order. All?hu Akbaru l-Akbar. The one who doesn't respect him is
less than that ant, his worth becomes nothing. "Y? ayyuha n-namlu dkhul? mas?kinakum!"
(27:18) Hide yourselves! From whom? Because some ignorant ones from Prophet Sulayman's
army might crush you. All?hu akbar, All?hu akbar, All?hu akbar.
Y? man amruhu bayna l-k?fi wa n-n?n! Huu.. O You, Whose order lies between k?f and n?n,
You only say, "Be!" and it is. Look at your Lord, O ignorant man! Come on, what do they say
about these new things, these new discoveries? "We have invented this, we have discovered that."
What have you discovered? What's the value of your invention? If you cannot discover yourself,
what's the value of what you found? Did you find yourself? Cannons and aircrafts you have
invented and this or that device. Well, we've understood. But yourself, did you find yourself? O
humans, O lackeys of shayt?n, puffed up with pride, do you know yourselves? Do you know? Do
you know what you are doing? Did you learn what your orders and prohibitions are? You didn't
learn it, you have no value. Subh?ns?n Y? Rabb. Sult?ns?n Y? Rabb. It is a clear order, "Y?
ayyuha n-namlu dkhul? mas?kinakum!!" Don't go beyond your limits! Move only as far as your
limits! Who goes beyond his limits becomes an oppressor. The punishment for an oppressor will
be the fire. That time these people will burn themselves.
Adab, y? Hu! Here you go, O Shah Mardan. These are lessons in adab. Let's learn our adab.
Adab, y? Hu! All?hu akbar. What counts in the Presence of the Exalted Truth is adab, not
knowledge. Adab is what makes one progress. Allah has made us from the Nation of His Beloved.
From the nation of His Beloved came Shah Mardan to teach us. That's why, in every place, learn
"Adab, y? Hu!" May your rank increase with the honor of man!
This is a speech for Shaykh Mehmet Effendi's understanding. He understands it, takes it in. His
spiritual power is great. For someone else it wouldn't have been said. Allah be pleased with you!
Please recite on me, Hj Mehmet!
