In a qudsi hadith, it is said “I am with the ones whose heart is broken[1]. Broken heart causes closeness to Allah. As Mustapha(Prophet Muhammad SAW) is more humble than anybody else, his closeness to Allah is greater than anybody else. Because, kafeers(infidels) had brought the indecency and treachery to the highest level so much that they hung the dirty stomach of a sheep on his venerable neck.


Dirt was dripping from the stomach everywhere on him.  When the children, young and old men, were dancing around him by shouting and playing drums, and mocking him by laughing at him, hearts of Sahabah [2](May Allah be pleased with them all) were broken because of this and they said to the messenger of Allah by grouping around him


 Oh the messenger of Allah! You are not only the khatam- ul- anbiya [3]; you are even a reason for the creation of this alem [4]. People got destroyed with the hatred of all the prophets for them.


Like Noah, Hud, Lot and Salih and the tribes of others, some of them were destroyed by storms, some changed their forms and turned to monkey and bears. Some were raised up to sky and turned upside down and left down from the sky. You are bigger than any other prophets in terms of degree and vilayyat [5]. The arrongancy of this tribe has not even been seen in the period of the other prophets.


You say They have never hurt any prophet as much as they have hurt me (hadith)” , please pray and let this arrogant and indecent tribe to be destroyed.


Upon these words the prophet said this Oh Sahabah! lift your hands up so that I will pray. The prophet lift up his hands to sky as well, and turned his face towards heaven by saying

Oh Allah! show them their way, make them awake and forgive them! Because they know not, they are not aware“.


Sahabah said We are telling you to curse them, you are praying for them, after that this verse was revealed :


And thou (standest) on an exalted standard of character.” [6]


As moustapha, was more humble and beaten his ego more than anyone, there is no doubt that he was more resistant, patient, elite and more friendly to public, and merciful to the enemy.     


Translated by Barbaros Sert from the work ,”Maarif, Fasil 19 in original text” written by Sultan Veled , the son of Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi who lived in13th century, Konya (middle anatolia).



[1] “I am with the one whose heart is broken for my sake.” (hadith qudsi)


[2] Sahabah:  Arabic word “ Sahabah “,  “Companions” were the companions of  Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). This form is plural; the singular is masculine sahābiyy, feminine sahābiyyah.


[3] Khatam-ul-Anbiya: Seal of the Prophets.


[4] Allah says, “Were it not for you (O Muhammad), I would not have created the universe.” (Al-Leali-l Masnua Suyutî 1/272;  Esrar-ül Mertüa Aliyy-ül Kari: p. 295-296; same is found in Tahkik Muhammed Said Zalûl p.194;  Al- Feraid-ül Mecmua fevkani p. 326; Keşf-ül Hafâ-Aclunî 2/164; Şerh-üş Şifa Aliyy-ül Karî 1/6; İbn-i Taymiyya even said “even if it is not a hadith, it’s meaning is true” as he mentioned this in his book of fatwa 10/ 96-98; Levami-ül Ukul Ni’metullah bin Veli p. 15; Divaın-ı Mevtana Câmî p. 4; Divan-ı Şeyh Ahmed-i Cezerî 1/190 ; Divan-ı Mevlâna Hâlid;  Mektubat-ı Imam-ı Rabbanî)


[5] Vilayyat: Amity. To be friend and to make friend.


[6] “وَإِنَّكَ لَعَلى خُلُقٍ عَظِيمٍ ”: Ve innaka le’ala hulukin ‘aziymin: And thou (standest) on an exalted standard of character. [Qur’an- Surah Al-Kalam 68/4]

    Hi Elcoj,
    Many thanks for your kind words. This document is a translation from a page within a book called MAARIF of Sultan Veled(K.S). As far as I know his books have not been translated to English. So it will be difficult to find his books in English. However, you can another of my translation from MAARIF on following link: , this site is a new site so I am adding articles and translation work bit by bit. If you check the archives, you can see some other articles in different months.
    Please let me know if you need any specific information.

    With Salaam(Peace), Love and Prayers

    Wa Alaikum Salaam Brother,
    Many thanks for your comment. May Allah give us inner patience. This incident had effected me deeply when I first read it years a go then I translated in to english and put it somewhere in my PC. These are a few lines from the book of Maarif. You should be able to find it in Turkish. One of those books I love to read again and again.
    With Salaam
