AL FATIHAH on the demise of an Indonesian saintly figure - Tajul Ariffin | Abah Anom

Hj Ahmad Sohibul Wafa Tajul Ariffin
(Abah Anom)
Murshid of Tariqa Qadiriah wa Naqshabandiah
Leader of Pesantren Suryalaya, Indonesia
1 January 1915 - 5 September 2011 


We are saddened to hear the news from one of his mureed. Although we do not know much of this saintly figure, suffice to see the traces of his syafaat and barakah in his mureed whom we know and respect - a youth with excellent akhlak and adab.

Tajul Ariffin or Abah Anom as he is fondly known among mureed and muhibbin was the murshid for Tariqa Qadiriah wa Naqshabandiah since 1956 when he took over from his father Abah Sepuh.

We are supporters of all tariqa and thus we share the sorrows felt by those who mourn the passing of Abah Anom. We all know what it is like to lose a guru, a guide, a mentor, a father.

Al Fatihah.

Mas Taj - thanks for sharing and keep your guru's teachings alive within you. I am proud of you!
