Cooking with Sheykh Effendi


Juma khutba given by Sheykh Abdul Kerim el-Hakkani el-Kibrisi

Friday 9 Rajab, 1427

Osmanli Naks-i’bendi Hakkani Dergah, Siddiki Center, New York.

Medet Ye Seyyidi Ya Sultanul Awliya, Medet.

Astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah, astaghfirullah wa shukrulillah. As we
said last week, this is the month of Rajab, the month of Allah
(subhana wa ta’ala). If anyone wants to catch their ego and put the
ego under their own control then it is easy (in this month). What will
happen if your ego is not under your control? Then it is in the hand
of Sheytan. Then you will be the servant of Sheytan. Ego is serving
Sheytan, the orders of Sheytan. You are not created to make Sheytan
happy. You have been created and sent to this world to make Allah
(subhana wa ta’ala) to be pleased with you and you to be pleased with
him. Aren’t we pleased with Allah? If you are pleased with Allah then
put a zipper to your mouth. No complaints from the mouth and no
complaints from the heart. Say, “Alhamdulillah. What comes to Me is
coming to me from my Lord.” Check yourself. Are you saying that by
yourself? If you have one complaint then you are not pleased with
Allah because everything happens with the order and authority of Allah
(subhana wa ta’ala). What happened to this mankind? The civilized man,
the democracy man, what happened? What happened to east and west? What
happened to north and south? What happened to the Christians, Jews and
Muslims? What happened to the believers and unbelievers? Find one who
is happy. Bring him to me. Where are they? Everyone is running to do
something. Running to do what? To the slavery of the world. Nothing
else. And (we are) saying to them, “You don’t have any time for Allah?”
