As-Salāmu ‘alaykum wa-raḥmatu Llāhi

Muḥammadin Sayyidi l-awwalīna wa-l-ākhirīn. Madad yā Rasūla Llāh,
madad yā Sādātī Aṣḥābi Rasūli Llāh madad yā Mashāyikhanā, dastūr

Nāẓim al-Ḥaqqānī. Madad. Ṭarīqatuna ṣ-ṣuḥbah,
wa-l-khayru fi l-jam’iyyah. The top of religion, salvation for people is in loving our Prophet ﷺ. A man who loves our Prophet ﷺ has found happiness. He is saved. Our Prophet ﷺ is saying “A person, a believer cannot have real faith unless he loves me ﷺ, the Prophet ﷺ more than anything else.” He can’t be a true believer. Things our Prophet ﷺ said are that faith and Islām are different, a Muslim and a believer are different. A believer is a beloved servant of Allāh ﷻ. He is like a Awliyā’. Because ’īmān is not easy. Sayyidina ’Umar raḍiya Llāhu ‘anhum once came to our Prophet ﷺ. He said “I love you ﷺ more than anything apart from myself”. Because Sayyidina ’Umar was a sincere person, not to tell a lie, he said
“I love you ﷺ more than anything in the world.” He said “I love myself”. And then our Prophet ﷺ said “Then you haven’t found real faith. You should love me ﷺ more than yourself”, said our Prophet ﷺ. Sayyidina ’Umar understood it. He thought the love of our Prophet ﷺ came after him. Because people love themselves. Then he said “I love you ﷺ more than
myself, yā Rasūlu Llāh.” When he said so, our Prophet ﷺ said “You are a true believer now.”
He repeated it three times. ’Īmān is a beautiful thing. Who doesn’t love our Prophet ﷺ is kāfir anyway. Kāfirs, we are seeing the world is full of kufr and shayṭān. They were enemies to our Prophet ﷺ
from the first day. It will be like this until qiyāmah. We are seeing now they don’t respect our Prophet ﷺ. Those are unlcuky people. They are unfortunate people
who didn’t find happiness. The happiness of here and hereafter comes to you when you make as much salātu s-salām to our Prophet ﷺ with respect to him ﷺ. Only few understand its value. Believers are very few. Muslims are not many too. But kufr is much more. Therefore, we should know its value and make shukr to Allāh ﷻ. We love our Prophet ﷺ. We love his ﷺ ṣaḥābah, Ahl al-Bayt and companions. We don’t feel hate or revenge to anyone, to good ones. We don’t like bad ones. May Allāh ﷻ keep
them away from us.
