Marhaba! Let us Trade.
Mawlana Shaykh Nazim’s Sohbet during Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin’s visit to Cyprus in Mar’2013 from day one of his trip:
“Marhaba O our glorious son! May you give Nur to Islam. May your Nur increase. Let us trade. We need to trade. Let us say Marhaba. O Shah-e Mardan, marhaban. O beloved ones, O beloved friends of Shah-e Mardan, marhaba.” (Mar 2013)
“A lion came to our assembly today. Whatever they make us say with his barakah, we will say. It is not that we know and say these words, but the words open themselves. The honor of an assembly is according to the most honored one present there.” (Mar 2013)
Who is the King (Shah) of this Way?
“We don’t know anything but these few beloved friends, the lovers of the Prophet (sas), the lovers of Shah-e Mardan Sayyidina Ali (ra)… We love our Prophet, the Master of the Creation. Shah-e Mardan is who is the Shah of this way, Hz Ali Ibn Abu Talib is Shah-e Mardan. Maydan-e Mardana, who is the Shah of the field of bravery, the field of men, the real brave man is only our Sayyidina Ali who is the Shah-e Mardan. Be careful about this.” (Mar 2013)
Our Hope is to Have Nisbah with Him
“The Maydan (field) belongs to Shah-e Mardan. AlHamdulillah. We have love for him. We hope at we have a nisbah (connection) with him. Shah-e Mardan… Oh foolish ones! When you wake up in the morning, your assembly should open with Shah-e Mardan”. (Mar 2013)
The Most Honored After the Prophet (S)
“For us now, the most honored one is Shah-e Mardan, after the Prophet alayhi Salatu was-Salam. Although the order (of the Rashidun Caliphs) goes Abu Bakr as-Siddiq, Sayyidina Umar and Sayyidina Uthman but the Seal is with Sayyidina Ali. He is the Shah-e Mardan!” (Mar 2013)
He Who Makes Me Speak
“O Shah-e Mardan, I may speak on your behalf. You are he who makes me speak.” (Mar 2013)
The Way of Those Who Are Valued
“Who keep the way of Shah-e Mardan are those who are beloved to Shah-e Mardan. Who leave his way are the ones who are trash. They are trash, they have no value.” (Mar 2013)
Yearning for Shah Mardan
“Shukur Allah that He (swt) gives our hearts the barakah, the love, the yearning for Shah-e Mardan and we are able to speak. If we speak till the Day of Judgement, it wouldn’t finish.” (Mar 2013)
The Gate to Knowledge is Shah-e-Mardan
“What do you know?” I don’t know anything but our Prophet (sas) said: Ana Madinatul ‘ilm wa ‘Aliyyun babuha, Shah-e Mardan. “I am the city of knowledge. Every knowledge is with me. The knowledge of Heavens and earths is with me. I am that city. And the gate of that city is Sayyidina Ali.” And Ali is its gate”. One can’t enter inside without Hz Ali’s love. Subhan Allah. It means the time is near, Mahdi (as) will come from his pure line, that because it is near, this (inspiration) comes to me so strongly. I am nothing. “And Ali is its gate”. Shah-e Mardan has all kinds of knowledge. Ask from it, ask from it.” (Mar 2013)
“Beware! Don’t look at who speaks but look to who makes us speak. O Shah-e Mardan, may you accept us. May our souls, our lives be sacrificed for you O beloved Companion of the Master of the Creation and the son of his uncle. O Lion of Allah who stands in the Presence of Allah. AsaduLlahu Ghalib, Ali Ibn Abu Talib. AsaduLlahu Ghalib, Ali Ibn Abu Talib. Masha Allah.” (Mar 2013)
The Majesty of Awliya is from Ali ibn Abi Talib
“All the Awliya, if they don’t receive a majesty from him, they can not be a Wali,Shaykh Mehmet Effendi. A small drop reaches them. He is an ocean, if a drop from it comes on them, they look like a dragon!” (Mar 2013)
Advice to Ahlus Sunnah wa-l Jama’at
“Other Sahabas would collect themselves when S. Ali entered an assembly. The Prophet (sas) would welcome him standing up, would kiss him. They don’t write this in the books either. All Sahaba would stand up. AsaduLlahi Ghalib, Ali ibn Abu Talib!” (Mar 2013)
“O Ahlu Sunnah wa-l Jama’at! If you respect him less than this, it means there is doubt in your iman.” (Mar 2013)
May You Be Beloved to Shah-e-Mardan
“O Shah-e Mardan, marhaba! O beloved ones! O beloved friends. May you be the ones who are beloved to Shah-e Mardan, who are his lovers and don’t fear. Don’t fear in dunya or in akhirah. No earthquakes, no floods, no snow storms, no hurricanes can reach you. You live all clean.” (Mar 2013)
Magnificence of Islam Will Appear
“But it will appear; the magnificence of Islam will appear. Who will manifest the magnificence of Islam is Shah-e Mardan, Sayyidina Ali and (he) who is from his grandsons, Sahibu-l Zaman Mahdi (as). He will be like the wind. Which plane, which cannon, what can stand against it? … Be aware of the magnificence of Islam. Know, acknowledge our Sayyidina Ali who is the Shah-e Mardan and who are dressed with this magnificence. Keep his way and don’t fear.” (Mar 2013)
From the Men Who Are Only a Few on Earth
“Today here there are from the men who are only a few on earth. There is the powerful one here that he is absorbing it like a hose; the one who is the Qutub, from the Ishraqiyyun.” (Mar 2013)
Our Shaykh is Sultan ul-Awliya
“Our Shaykh is Sultanul Awliya. He also used to say this. If there’s enough time to milk make a meeting” he said. Milking two cows; five minutes or three minutes or seven minutes it takes that much time. Even this much, a believer should give and take with another believer. How nice! This is good manners Shaykh Mehmet. When two believers meet, there may come a benefit. Marhaba Shah Mardan. Ali ibn Abu Talib. Shah Mardan, who shakes the ground Hz. Ali ibn Abi Talib, Radiy’Allahu Anh. Karram Allahu Wajahu Hazrat. Remember his name. He is the door of City of Knowledge. The City of Knowledge is the Prophet (sas) Nobody knows the limits of that city. Allah (swt) said: “Qul law kanal bahru idadal likalimati Rabbi. ma nafidel kalimatu Rabbi. walaw ji’na bimithlihi madadan”. The words of my Lord – if the oceans, oceans followed and they were ink, it’s not enough to write His Words. More comes afterwards.” (Mar 2013)
What Makes Shaytan Flee?
“What makes Shaytan flee? AudhubiLlahi min ash-shaytanir rajim. Audhu makes him flee. Also when he hears the name of Shah Mardan, he tries to find a place to escape, because if Dhu l Fiqar in Shah Mardan’s hands once falls on him, he can’t stand up again. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar.” (Mar 2013)
Shah Mardan is the Head of All Tariqats
“Marhaba Shah Mardan. After fajr prayer a believer, the believers either in dargahs, takkas or mosques, used to gather around a holy person and say: “let’s listen and learn something.” So, we also want to follow the way of the great ones. We get permission from Shah Mardan he is the head of all tariqahs. Shah Mardan Hz. Ali Ibn Abi Talib Karram Allahu Wajah isn’t it ? Allahu Akbarul Akbar, Allahu Akbarul Akbar. Allahu Akbarul Akbar.” (Mar 2013)
Follow the Group and Way of Shah Mardan
“The sects are truth. But there’s a group in particular, the group of Shah Mardan. There are other groups, which are made up by Shaytan. Follow the group and way of Shah Mardan. Keep his direction. Be at his service. Pay homage to him. This is a way leading to paradise. Those against him are the groups of people without any group, made up by shaytan… That’s why people of this age have no light in their faces. Is there light on the faces of those who forget Shah Mardan? Is there light in their hearts? Is there love in their hearts? Do they have wisdom? No, no.” (Mar 2013)
“This is a sohbah. It is for waking up. When two believers come together, even there’s enough time to milk two cows, they should say marhaba, they should praise Shah Mardan. They should send salatu salam to the Nabi of End of Times; should glorify Allah, say “Bismillahir rahmanir rahim” and walk. That’s our program. Who don’t obey, they are all rubbish. They are worthless.” (Mar 2013)
“The ones who mention Shah Mardan’s name, but have no respect for him, they are unbelievers. Who don’t love him, the ones, in this world or the ones in heavens don’t want them. “ (Mar 2013)
Who Do We Imitate?
“ Who do we imitate? We imitate Shah Mardan Haydar-i Karrar” (Mar 2013)
Shah Mardan is the Sun of Our World
“There was, once upon a time, after fajr the friends, lovers of Shah Mardan, those who honor him in mosques, in dargahs, or in tombs they sat & made sohbah mentioning his name. They tasted, they drank the taste, the beauty of Islam. They found relief… We bloom like roses. At night time the flowers are concealed. When it’s daytime, sun is rising the roses bloom. At night time they are concealed. For this reason, Shah Mardan is the sun of our world. The sun of faith and belief in our world. When he comes out we bloom, no trouble or distress on us. Light comes. Relief comes. We feel happy.” (Mar 2013)
Be Careful, Don’t Claim to be Shia, Alawi
“Be careful! Don’t say, “I am Shia”. A true Shia would not kill an ant! And you, with your army and weapons made by kafirs (disbelievers)…go without looking in front of you and destroy what is around? On top of that, you claim to be Alawi or Shia; it is lies and fraud! O people who claim to be Shia or Alawi, fake Shia, fake, fake people, those who consider themselves to be Shia or Alawi… To be Alawi is not founded on lies. Shia is not founded on lies. To work for dunya… is to reject Hz, Ali (rad)…” (April 10th, 2013)
Who Takes Light from Shah Mardan, Does Not Take Light from Other Ways
“Welcome to you, in the assembly of Shah Mardan…As salamu alaikum! O attenders, sitting at Shah Mardan’s bounteous table, observing Shah Mardan’s bravery, learning about it, asking for a portion of his light. He who takes a portion from his light, does not take light from other ways. A human being without light is like a pitch black piece of coal; the only thing it is good for is to burn in fire…” (April 19th, 2013)

How delightful it is to sit in his assembly, to share in his exploits, in his marvelous works and righteous traits. He has appeared, Shah Mardan has appeared, mashAllah. Bring him here into our gathering. Bring him here! Come let’s listen to what he will be made to say, what he is ordered to proclaim!” (April 19th, 2013)
What is Our Tariqa, What is Sohbah?
“Today is a new day. The Saints of our way have said, our way, tariqa, is by association, sohbah. What is sohbah? Now, whatever ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib (Shah Mardan) says, that is what we say.” (April 24th, 2013)

Why Don’t You Surrender to ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib?
“Instead of becoming an animal for this world, why don’t you come and surrender to ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib? ’Ali ibn Abi Talib follows the way of the Owner of the Heavens and Earth, Allah (subhana wa talala). For the sake of the Beloved of Allah, the Pride of the Universes, he (Shah Mardan) sacrifices himself for him. He is that holy person. That is ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib.” (April 24th, 2013)
Our Way is the Way of ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib
“Let’s pull ourselves together. Our way is the way of ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib’s associations. He is the Pride of Creation’s (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) cousin, who is the City of Knowledge. He (Hz. ‘Ali) is the Door, the Door to the City of Knowledge (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)…innal quwatalillahi jamian, when all power belongs to Allah, why are you searching for it elsewhere? What stupidity is this? Get up! And come to the assemblies of those who are ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib’s beloved ones. The beloved ones to the Lion of Allah. Go to their assemblies and associations because only lions can walk with lions….if you want to be a lion, how can you walk with dogs?” (April 24th, 2013)
Instructions from ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib
“What can we do, O ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib? ‘Make my assemblies everywhere’, he is saying. These assemblies, Yaran-full of love-let them be everywhere in one thousand places, in one-hundred thousand places, so people can come back to life. So Angels can dress you with the dress of power from heavens, and dress you with the dress of mightiness, so enemies cannot look in your direction, so oppressors will look for shelter, but will not find it…” (April 24th, 2013)
Be Just, Keep the Way of ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib
“Be just, keep the way of ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib. I am ashamed to say: Keep the way of Allah (swt), but we have permission to mention ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib’s orders, and his mightiness. Dhul Fiqar (sword) was seen in his hands, but now there are holy ones dressed with his holy rank, who follow his way (pointing at himself). Their swords are hidden for now, but tomorrow it will be out in the open. Let’s say, “Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem“. O ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib (Shah Mardan)! How beautifully you are speaking! Ay Shah Mardan! The people who the Lion of Allah loves, you have no fear in this life, nor in the hereafter. You are honorable, and you are lions.” (April 24th, 2013)
