Maulana Sheikh Nazim Nothing is more precious than Knowledge

Shukr, ya Rabbi, Shukr, ya Rabbi, Shukr, Alhamdulillah, Tauba, ya Rabbi, Tauba, ya Rabbi, Tauba, Astaghfirullah…Destur, ya Sayyidi, ya Sultanu-l Anbiya, Meded, ya sulranul Awliya, Meded, ya Rijalallah…Ya Rijalallah, aiduna bi aunillah…Audhu bi-llahi mina shaitani rajim, Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim, l haula wa la quwatta illa bi-llahi-l ‘Aliyu-l ‘Azim…Subhanaka! La ‘ilma lana illa ma ‘alamtana…

Nothing can be much more precious than ‘Ilm, Knowledge. Knowledge (is) giving honour to mankind and “Rutbatul ‘ilmi ‘ala rutab”, “the Rank of Knowledge is the highest rank”, (as) Rasulullah, the Seal of Prophets, the most honoured one in His divinely Presence, S.Muhammad sws- Allah bless him and give him more glory- (he said). There may be for mankind so many ranks. (These) ranks all belong to this life and most ranks are artificial, they are not real ranks. That ranks which are artificial, (they are) just (only) reaching (up) to death of that person. When that person (has) died, his ranks also disappeared, because they are artificial, not real ranks.

Real ranks (are) heavenly Ranks, that are grants from the divinely Presence to Allah’s servants. That Ranks can’t be granted to everyone, no! Heavenly Ranks (are) only for some people that are chosen people among whole mankind. How they are going to be chosen? Who is choosing them? Whom they are? It is not like election of people, voting people and bringing a dirtiest one and making him the last level of animal level. They are not elected or chosen by mankind. It is not from people, no. They are chosen and elected through Heavens. Whom they are? They are those whom “Iza ruu, thukkir Allah”- they are some people (that) if you are looking to them, immediately you are remembering Allah and you will say: “Allah!” That is their speciality. They are just different ones among other people. Their dressing is different from others.

“What is their dressing oh Sheikh? They are following fashions? New fashion every time they are dressing? Following fashions? What is their dressing?” Shaitan (is) playing with people with fashions. To rush and to run on keeping fashions. Now the whole world is running after new fashion for everything. They may say: “Our furniture is now old fashion, now New Year coming, we must change it in a new fashion furniture. If he has a car in December, and coming January, he is saying: ”No, my car is now old fashion, I must look a new fashion (car). New Year, new fashion!”

Dressings, for everything man has a so bad habit now. Bad habits (are) just planted through mankind. Everyone is asking new fashion, new things. They are thinking that if they are using new fashion clothes they are going to be changed into another personality. They are thinking that their physical being is going to be changed for the reason of new fashion clothes. Therefore they are throwing away. Everyone’s wardrobe is full with clothes. If you are asking: “Why you are not dressing this?” (They are saying:) “This (is) for last year we are dressing this, now we are asking new fashion clothes.” They are so square head people, no mind people that thinking new fashion clothes… It is same clothes, same material, but sometimes this jacket, I was looking, sometimes they have only one button. Then becoming after a while I am looking: Oh, they are using two buttons. Now I am looking that it is going to be 1,2,3… They are not dressing one button. It is so blame for them, no, can’t be! How it can be! Moda, fashion, new fashion, three button, how you are coming (like) this! Sometimes you are seeing that jackets for another style and colour and trousers another. Sometimes trousers bottom so large… and then I am looking and it is going to be like this oven pipe… ”Because we are civilized people and we must follow fashions”… What is the benefit? Shaitan is making them mascera… Shaitan playing with their small minds… Look X… becoming old fashion little-by-little…

People now on earth are occupied by such a foolish habits. 1oo % foolish habits. Particularly women. Women running after fashion. New fashion followers. “We must look this TV how she is dressing, we must dress like that one.” “Oh my darling, you must also dress like this one!” Putting one eye-glass and looking to her… seeing four… And people they are thinking that their dressings are giving them an honour! And finally then, when they are dying, taken everything from that one, all new fashions, nothing on her or on him, you can’t look to their faces! Shaitanic teachings! And then Shaitan is using his representatives from devils that they are new fashion makers in Paris… new fashion center… people looking new fashion coming from Paris… Shaitan’s representatives for new fashion, in Paris… English people not too much running after such things. They are conservatives, people are keeping their old systems much more… particularly Scottish people never changing… Scottish people they are dressing their grandmothers, grandfathers dressing, when they were using it for wedding ceremony… and Germans… they are also using ‘Leder’ trousers from their ancestors… I don’t know to where reaching their ancestors… from the time of… or Wilhelm using this?… ”We must keep this!” Feridudin never using ordinary trousers, always coming like this and his group also… I am happy with them… X., why not using your grandfathers… stolen? Jamaluddin, where is your grandfathers (trousers)? No grandfather for you? Subhanallahi-l ‘Aliyu-l ‘Azim!

Shaitanic teachings and also Shaitans representatives. Practising people everywhere. “You must follow this, because your honour (is) top honour to follow a perfect following for fashions.” This year fashion is yellow clothes, yellow hats, yellow tie… only priests are unhappy because always dressing black clothes… they are unhappy not to follow new fashion clothes… and people (are) running after fashions and practising what Shaitan (is) making them to do and to follow, and they are saying. “Your honour (is) with your clothes. You must take much more care for your clothes.” It is written through holy Books that it is traditional knowledge reaching to me also through 1ooo years, that Imam Ghazzali- he is famous learned person in the Islamic world, well known, as well as he is well known through Western countries. They are saying: “Most important philosopher in Islam.” Western people (are) saying. Oriental people, Muslims, (they are) saying: “One of our most high level learned ones, ‘Alim, learned person.”

He was saying that when a person died and put in his coffin and taken to graveyard, on the way his Lord, the Lord of creation, the Lord of Heavens, Allah Almighty, He is asking to that one until his coffin is reaching to graveyard, 4o questions. Before the questioning in the graveyard, 4o questions. He was saying first one of that and the other 39 keeping with him: Allah Almighty is asking His servant: “Oh My servant! I was looking to you along your life; you were taking a perfect care for your outlooking, as much as possible you were taking care for it” (Sometimes coming (in front of mirror), making (like this, like that)… women and men looking (in) this big mirror… making like this… ”Okay”… If not, putting (make-up…arranging his) beard… then full…) “You were taking so much care your yourself, your outlooking, because you were very happy that people (are) looking to you and to say: “Oh, so beautiful one”… some others may say: “So handsome one”… Through your whole life you were interested only in ‘tanzim’, for decorating your outlooking so that people may look (and say about you): “Ohhh!”, that people may see you in a perfect condition. Were you ever thinking for Me, that my Looking was to your heart, to say that: ”My Lord is not looking our outer being, our forms, but He is looking to our hearts”? You ever thought on it, you ever tried to make My Looking to reach through yourself in a perfect looking and to see and to be happy with your heart that you (are) taking care for it? You ever thought on it?” This (one question already) is enough! It was enough! That people, what they are doing for themselves, for their physical being! (And the) Ohysical being is nothing! (It is) going to be a rubbish with bad smelling.

You should be put underground, through your grave, and just covered with earth, but your soul, your heart, if you are not taking any care for it, Allah Almighty (is) blaming you. He should blame you (And say): “Oh My servant! Why you were not taking care for Me to show Me a good show through your heart? You (were) ever thinking on it?” Now people, all of them, (they are) making (this)- dressing on their physical being so many bad habits, bad fashions- they are saying: “New fashion” (for it)- and finally that physical being (is) going to be on a worst position. They are running (and looking) after their physical being, they are not running to make their hearts clean, prepared for their Lord only!

We are speaking on knowledge, a (kind of) knowledge that people must know. It is a kind of knowledge that (is) giving honour to its owner, making his rank over ranks, making his rank over the ranks of common people, making his rank a special rank, just different from other peoples’ levels- that (knowledge) gives them honour. Therefore the Prophet was saying: “(The) highest degree for our ranks- that it is not from earth, from people granted to you, (but) it is granted from Heavens and you dressed (it) on yourself- that (rank) is much more or that is what Allah Almighty is asking His servants to reach! And when His servants (are) cleaning themselves and coming (clean, then) Allah Almighty is dressing them heavenly Ranks, (because that time) they are suitable for (these) heavenly Ranks. His servants have rights to be dressed heavenly Ranks, real Ranks. (They are) not like common people living on earth that they are asking ranks and honours from their dressings.

May Allah forgive us and bless you for the honour of the most honoured one in His divinely Presence S.Muhammad sws, bi hurmati-l Fatiha.
