As-Sayyid Sultanul Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad ‘Adil ar-Rabbani Hazretleri ق ṣuḥbat, 5 December 2019 / 8 Rabī‘u l-Akhir 1441, Akbaba Dergah, Istanbul, Turkey
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa raḥmatullāhi wa barakātuh. A‘ūdhu billāhi minash-shayṭāni r-rajīm. Bismillāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm. Aṣ-ṣalātu wa s-salāmu ‘alá Rasūlinā Muḥammadin Sayyidi l-awwalīna wa l-ākhirīn. Madad yā RasūlAllah, madad yā Sādāti Aṣḥābi Rasūlillāh, madad yā Mashāyikhinā, dastūr yā Shaykh Abdullāh al-Fā’iz ad-Dāghestāni, Shaykh Muḥammad Nāẓim al-Ḥaqqānī. Madad. Ṭarīqatunā aṣ-ṣuḥbah wa l-khayru fi l-jam‘iyyah.
The Prophet says, “‘Inda dh-dhikri ṣ-ṣāliḥīn, tanzīlu r-raḥmah.” “Whenever a righteous person is remembered, the Rahmah of Allah descends there.” The month of Rabī‘u l-Akhir is the month of Hadrat Abdul-Qadir al-Jilani ق. It is the month of his birth. Hadrat Abdul-Qadir al-Jilani ق is one of the greatest friends of Allah. He is a descendant of the holy Prophet ﷺ, and he is the head of a great tariqah.
He is an ocean of knowledge. He is knowledgeable of seen and unseen knowledge. Whoever follows him is on the right path. The path of tariqah is the path of Truth. This is one of the forty tariqahs. It is one of the biggest. Shaykh Baba, Shaykh Nazim Efendi ق, made khalwah next to him [at his grave]. He stayed there about six months, as far as I remember, in 1965. During this time miracles happened to him. Its barakah, inshāAllah, will reach us and his murids until Yawm ul-Qiyamah. With Allah’s permission, his glance is upon our tariqah, too.
Some people are ignorant, they make comparisons such as, “Your tariqah is better,” or “My tariqah is better.” They all are directed to the way of Allah. We need to be careful not to cross the limits of adab. Every saint is a good servant of Allah. If one of you says a word that violates adab, you will receive the wrath of Allah. This is not a good deed, so one must be careful. You are in the Naqshbandiyyah Tariqah and are obliged to love the Qadiriyyah. You will also love the Rifaiyyah, the Badawiyyah—love all of them. This is because Allah does not put everyone into the same place.
This path is the path of truth. Those who are on this path are on the path of the Prophet ﷺ. It has reached us without interruption. Those who do not respect these, who turn away as enemies, are doomed. May Allah, therefore, bless their secrets. May their station be the highest. May their glance be upon us, inshāAllah.
